Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 62: Battling The Demon Lord

“Do you see that? All it took to plunge Azure Dragon Hall’s headquarters into complete chaos were three small teams,” The white-haired expert explained to Du Mian while they stood on a high mountain outside the manor.

But Du Mian frowned slightly. “Their headquarters is already in such a mess, but that person still hasn’t shown himself. Is it because he’s not actually here?”

“Perhaps he’s not here, or perhaps he doesn’t care about Azure Dragon Hall.” The white-haired man’s voice was still calm without any ripples. “Of course, it’s more likely that he went into hiding.”

Du Mian’s expression suddenly paled, and he asked anxiously, “Master, do you mean that he’s already noticed us?”

“Of course he noticed.” The white-haired man shook his head with a smile. “But so what? I destroyed his organization and cut off his foundation—this is an overt plot.

“If he doesn’t want to remain a coward all his life, then he will show himself sooner or later.”

As if to validate the white-haired man’s statement, the attacks that were originally quick and violent inside the manor suddenly appeared to be blocked by some force, and everyone inside froze.

An inexplicable wave of power swept through them, and an unspeakable sense of fear arose in everyone’s heart.

Du Mian also felt this wave, yet a smile appeared on his face. He said loudly, “As Master expected, that person couldn’t help showing up in the end.”

However, the white-haired man, who had always looked calm and collected, suddenly changed his expression right then. “He has advanced to the Prodigious Realm!”

……

……

“Teacher… has advanced?” Yan Xiaoxiao looked at Gu Nan with pleasant surprise.

Originally, Gu Nan’s power was completely withdrawn into himself, but at the moment of reincarnation, his power entered this body through Gu Nan’s soul. The fluctuation it caused couldn’t be hidden from others.

And Gu Nan also discovered an advantage of Prodigious Realm cultivators—they didn’t need to wait and recover their power after reincarnation. Their power would rapidly recover until it reached the limit that their soul could bear.

‘Reincarnation with half the soul… so it was like this.’

After reaching Tier 3, reincarnation felt very different than before. Many things he couldn’t understand back then were now clear to him.

‘With half of the soul as a support, the other half of the soul is replaced with the world’s power. In this way, not only can this body inherit my entire power, but I can also receive one chance to escape death.

‘But as soon as this body dies, the soul will be rejected by the world’s power, so it’ll be hard to enter this plane again.’

After glancing through the essence of half-soul reincarnation, Gu Nan finally turned his head and gave Yan Xiaoxiao a slight nod. “Enemy attack?”

“They… They’re from Limitless Demon Sect.” Yan Xiaoxiao gnashed her teeth. Azure Dragon Hall’s strength was practically uprooted overnight, and they suffered heavy losses.

It took great amounts of effort to gather this much strength, but after this battle, she’s afraid that the vast majority of her power would be lost.

Gu Nan seemed to see through Yan Xiaoxiao’s thoughts. He said with a faint smile, “As long as your own power is strong enough, you can make as many of these organizations as you want… Wait for Teacher to destroy the incoming enemy first!”

As soon as his voice fell, Gu Nan’s figure disappeared instantly, while Bai Luoluo stared in a daze.

Even though Gu Nan’s face was somewhat different from his original face due to reincarnation, Bai Luoluo still had an inexplicable feeling that Sister Xiaoxiao’s teacher… looks really familiar.

……

Right when his mind sensed an aura quickly approaching them, the white-haired man urgently told Du Mian, “Retreat to a safe distance first…”

Before he finished speaking, Gu Nan, who was dressed in a moon-white robe embroidered with golden threads, looked at him with a smile. “Demon Lord Wang Yutong?”

The Demon Lord narrowed his eyes slightly. After being silent for a while, he replied, “That’s right. To think that Fellow Gu has advanced from Innate Realm Fourth Stage to Prodigious Realm in a little over six months. You truly deserve to be called a genius!”

“You recognize me?” Gu Nan was truly curious now. He didn’t expect a native to know about his exploits from the past year.

“Back then, Daoist Gu had already comprehended a rudimentary innate ability while he was still in Innate Realm Fourth Stage and had successfully escaped from right under Daoist Wen’s nose. All of this cannot be hidden from us,” The white-haired Demon Lord leisurely explained.

Although Wang Yutong knew Gu Nan’s background very well, Du Mian’s heart shook violently upon hearing this.

‘It turns out that he had already comprehended a rudimentary innate ability while at Innate Realm Fourth Stage… No wonder he could defeat and even kill Martial Uncle Han with his meager Innate Realm cultivation!’

Du Mian even filled in the blanks about Gu Nan’s goals. ‘At that time, he must have already been at the peak of Innate Realm and wanted to find a Prodigious Realm expert for him to test against. He wanted to use that life and death battle to break through!’

Even the Demon Lord thought so as he said, “My junior martial brother had inferior skills. This Lord has nothing to say about him dying at Fellow Gu’s hands. Daoist Gu has no grudge against my demonic path, so why don’t—”

“Why don’t you also follow your junior martial brother into the afterlife!” Gu Nan interrupted. A black longsword had already been condensed in his hand and thrusted towards the Demon Lord!

The strike of the sword moved too fast. Not even the Demon Lord could have dodged it.

But the Demon Lord was still the head of the demonic path. Even if he didn’t come from the upper world, his methods were nevertheless far superior to that of ordinary cultivators.

Calm and unhurried, he stretched out his right hand and gently touched the tip of Gu Nan’s sword with a finger, instantly blocking Gu Nan’s attack.

But before he could smile, Gu Nan suddenly grinned inside. The Demon Lord immediately sensed danger and rushed to pull his hand back, but he was too late.

The longsword that had originally been repelled by Wang Yutong’s fingertip actually extended several meters out of thin air and stabbed into the Demon Lord’s fingertip.

Even Du Mian could sense some part of his master’s aura disappearing without a trace. Clearly, this sudden move had already destroyed one of Wang Yutong’s innate abilities.

Some anger finally appeared in the Demon Lord’s eyes, but his gaze remained calm. “Since Daoist Friend is determined to become enemies with this Lord…”

“Just fight if you want to fight! No need to prattle on!”

Gu Nan only retreated one step but unexpectedly stabbed forward with the extending sword again, this time aimed directly at the Demon Lord’s face.

The Demon Lord’s lips twitched slightly. He had never encountered such an opponent before. ‘With our current status and position, is there anything that can’t be resolved by sitting down and talking it out? Why are you so determined to fight as if we’re mortal enemies?’

The grudge between Yan Xiaoxiao and the demonic path wasn’t anything major in the Demon Lord’s eyes. ‘If worst comes to worst, I’ll just give that small sect to Yan Xiaoxiao as a gift so that she can kill them all.’

As for whether or not that sect was actually legitimate, Comrade Demon Lord didn’t care.

Gu Nan attacked six consecutive times with his sword. The Demon Lord didn’t use his fingers this time. Instead, he waved his hand lightly, and six vortices appeared in just the right places to block the path of Gu Nan’s sword.

“Gravitational vortex? Interesting.” Gu Nan gave a slight nod.

This Demon Lord’s core skill was “gravity,” which was also an extremely high-end law. Of course, the other party’s skill level was also quite good.

Only when a great skill was combined with superb control would it be able to produce excellent results.

But it was very unfortunate that he was facing Gu Nan, someone who understood the advantages and disadvantages of practically all the laws in the world and knew exactly how to counter all of them.

The black sword in Gu Nan’s hand disappeared, and a humanoid shadow suddenly sprang up from behind the Demon Lord!

Wham!

The weakness of a gravitational vortex was that the closer it was to the caster’s body, the harder it was to control—it could easily cause gravitational chaos. Thus, using a shadow double to fight him in close combat was undoubtedly the best choice.

“Damn it!” The Demon Lord finally became flustered. He never imagined that the other party could actually see through the weakness of his Demonic Gravitational Arts after only seeing it once!

And even the Holy Demon Finger was neutralized by the enemy’s stratagem, so his chances of winning instantly plummeted…

The Demon Lord made a prompt decision and swiftly pushed out a gravitational vortex. The shadow avatar was forced to dodge, and Wang Yutong took this opportunity to instantaneously break away from the battle.

He picked up Du Mian with one hand and rapidly retreated, leaving behind the words, “Fellow Gu, if fate permits, you might as well pay a visit to my sect’s sacred altar for a chat.”
