Faint light seeped into the dark cave, but this setting didn’t interfere with Gu Nan’s progress. With the Evil God physique, dark vision was a basic ability.

Its complicated routes, however, gave him a slight headache. There were so many forks in the paths that it was almost impossible to search every inch.

This was probably the main reason why Yan Xiaoxiao could hide here and avoid the demonic path’s pursuit.

Fortunately, Gu Nan had let in several enemies. Soon, a wave of power flashed from the front like a lamp in the dark, guiding Gu Nan forward.

Deep inside the cave, Lin Jun sat cross-legged on the ground, surrounded by a white light that was expanding bit by bit.

Du Mian stood on the edge of the white light with a sneer on his face. “Fairy Lin, don’t even bother struggling on your deathbed. How long can you maintain your secret technique? Time is on my side right now!”

“Since ancient times, evil has never prevailed over justice. Lin Jun can only try her best.” Lin Jun’s expression didn’t change, but when she looked to the side, she couldn’t hide the worry in her eyes.

Yan Xiaoxiao was lying next to Lin Jun with her eyes tightly shut. Her fingers were moving slightly.

Du Mian noticed Lin Jun’s gaze, and his smile widened. “Is this the Polis Witch? On one hand, you have to block me, while on the other, you have to block out her murderous thoughts with ‘Great Mercy Universal Wish.’ I’m afraid that it won’t be long before you run out of energy.”

Lin Jun didn’t reply this time. She merely looked at him with an icy expression.

In fact, Du Mian was entirely correct. If she didn’t insist on taking Yan Xiaoxiao no matter what, she would be able to get away from Du Mian and wouldn’t fall into such a dilemma.

Just when the two were deadlocked, the sound of footsteps came from the side.

‘The only ones who would enter the cave right now are the few people outside……’

Hope flashed through Lin Jun’s eyes, while Du Mian frowned slightly as he thought, ‘Since you guys are looking for death, then don’t blame me for not holding back, even if you are from the Mo family!’

However, when the visitor’s figure appeared, the two were both stunned.

“It’s you!” Du Mian raised his eyebrows slightly and was about to threaten Gu Nan, but Lin Jun beat him to the punch.

“Gentleman Gu, you’re just in time. Quickly step inside.” Lin Jun took a deep breath. “This person is the current Demon Lord’s disciple. He is exceptionally dangerous. Please take care of this girl on my behalf,” Lin Jun’s voice was full of resolve, as though she was about to fight Du Mian with everything she had.

Actually, this wasn’t impossible. As long as Gu Nan entered the range of the white light and helped her watch over Yan Xiaoxiao, she would then be free to deal with Du Mian.

With her grand position as one of the three Goddesses, she did have some hidden methods to attack.

Before Gu Nan could speak, Du Mian sneered, “Too late!”

Almost simultaneously, his fist had already reached Gu Nan’s face—it was better to strike first and gain the upper hand. As long as he eliminated this variable called Gu Nan, he would surely win.

Gu Nan didn’t dodge this punch at all. He only gave it a light glance, as if he didn’t even see it.

‘You can’t even react?’ Du Mian sneered even more inside his heart, and a trace of contempt flashed through his eyes.

However, he didn’t notice the pendant on Gu Nan’s chest shining faintly. The instant his fist was about to connect, Gu Nan suddenly raised his fist and punched him hard in the face.

Dragon Power!

Gu Nan’s strength, which wasn’t inferior to Du Mian’s to begin with, increased several times in an instant—his strength and speed reaching an incredible level. Du Mian came at him fast and left even faster, flying back at his original speed several times.

“Be careful—” Lin Jun’s belated warning finally arrived, but the rest of the words were stuck in her throat.

Gu Nan ignored her. Before the duration of Dragon Power ended, he rushed into the white light and grabbed the stunned Du Mian, punching him several times in a row.

Bam! Bam! Bam……

His fists fell down on Du Mian like rain and made dull noises. The physique of the “Young Demon Lord” was truly strong.

Five seconds passed quickly, and Gu Nan’s “five seconds as a real man” state disappeared, so he also stopped his attacks. Du Mian, on the other hand, had been beaten so much that he no longer looked human; no trace of his original appearance could be seen from his face.

Lin Jun was completely stunned. She knew that Gu Nan was “quite strong,” but… this was Du Mian!

Strictly speaking, she and Du Mian were from the same generation. If she didn’t inherit the identity of one of the three Goddesses, she would actually be weaker than the “Young Demon Lord.”

‘But now, this barbarian… no, Gentleman Gu… actually pressed Du Mian to the ground and gave him a vicious beating?!

‘More importantly... How can he still attack anyone while standing inside the Great Mercy Universal Wish?’

Student Lin Jun felt like her brain had turned into mush. She couldn’t understand anything that Gu Nan did.

After Gu Nan gave Du Mian a vicious beating, he casually tossed Du Mian aside and began to walk towards Lin Jun. To be specific, he was walking towards Yan Xiaoxiao.

Of course he immediately noticed that a power began to invade his mind as soon as he entered the white light, but this power was quickly consumed inside his sea of knowledge before it even reached the depths of his mind. Soon, it disappeared completely.

The Evil God physique came with many abilities, such as super regeneration, dark vision, common poison immunity, and spiritual and mental resistance. Ordinary mental spells wouldn’t have any effect on Gu Nan.

Gu Nan went to Yan Xiaoxiao and gave her pretty face a few light slaps.

“G-Gentleman Gu! What are you doing!?” Lin Jun felt like she was about to go crazy. It took her so much time and effort to finally force Yan Xiaoxiao into a light sleep, but this Gu Nan was slapping her to wake up!

‘Doesn’t he know that once the Polis Witch awakens… No wait, he casually handled Du Mian, so it seems like the Polis Witch won’t be a problem for him either……’

In the face of absolute power, it didn’t matter whether or not Yan Xiaoxiao was a witch.

Lin Jun barely managed to hypnotize Yan Xiaoxiao. Thus, with the addition of an external force, she soon opened her eyes.

Her hands moved . The instant she opened her eyes, her right hand had pulled out a dagger from her waist and slashed it towards Gu Nan’s throat.

At the same time, her left hand clenched into a fist and delivered an uppercut to Gu Nan’s chin.

If no accidents happened, the uppercut to Gu Nan’s chin would snap his head back, after which the dagger would slit his throat.

However, Gu Nan moved even faster. He simply lowered his head slightly, causing Yan Xiaoxiao’s uppercut to miss. His left hand turned lightly and actually grabbed the girl’s wrist from a strange angle.

All of this happened so fast that everything was completed almost instantly.

In the eyes of a bystander like Lin Jun, Yan Xiaoxiao’s punch missed, and then she sent her hand over for the other party to grab.

‘Had this person seemed to have completely predicted Miss Yan’s moves? How can that be……’ Lin Jun was ignorant of martial arts, so she suddenly had an outrageous guess in her heart.

‘Since her debut, the Polis Witch has been famous for her treacherous, cunning, and varied martial arts. To think that someone can actually see through her moves……’

However, the two’s following conversation made her gasp in shock.

“Not bad.” Gu Nan let go of Yan Xiaoxiao’s wrist. He commented with a light smile, “Anyhow, you didn’t waste these six months.”

At this point, Yan Xiaoxiao’s vision cleared up enough to see the face of the person in front of her. Her original cold expression gradually melted, and her nose even stung slightly, as though about to cry.

“Teacher……”
