Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 70: Goddess Set's Seret Tehnique

“Speak.” Gu Nan stared at Lin Jun, who was sitting in front of him with a slightly unnatural look, and asked calmly, “What can you give in exchange for your life?”

“Gentleman Gu…” Lin Jun bit her bottom lip a little and lowered her head. Her expression looked so weak, delicate, and easy to bully, yet she also seemed like she was just barely propping herself up.

A black sword pierced her left shoulder in an instant.

Lin Jun looked up with stunned eyes, but Gu Nan still sat peacefully in the same spot. A shadow had appeared between them. A black sword emerged from precisely within that shadow.

Although she knew that the man in front of her was an incomparable master at the grandmaster level, such strange and unpredictable means still made Lin Jun’s expression change.

However, what followed after that was Gu Nan’s cold words.

“You still have one last chance to say something.” Gu Nan’s gaze was ice-cold, as though the person in front of him was merely a skeleton. “If you can’t offer something I want, then you can join your colleagues.”

“Secret technique! I’m willing to offer my Goddess Sect’s secret meditative technique!” Lin Jun quickly shouted.

Gu Nan’s expression eased up, showing a smile that resembled a spring breeze, just like when the two first met.

“Fairy, please speak,” Gu Nan said with a smile.

This was completely different from his tone and expression just now, which made Lin Jun suspect that she might've just hallucinated from before.

Unfortunately, although the black sword had disappeared, the bloody wound on her left shoulder reminded her of the true colors of the person in front of her.

Lin Jun gritted her teeth and said, “My Goddess Sect’s secret technique can dispel a person's killing intent and help them clear their hearts and minds… Gentleman, you’ve seen it before.”

Gu Nan nodded very seriously this time. When he met Lin Jun before, the other party relied on that secret technique to stop Du Mian from immediately killing her.

“Dispel someone's killing intent?” Gu Nan rubbed his chin, then tapped the table.

Another maid soon came in and bowed. “Master.”

“Send someone to the dungeon and bring those two criminals up here.”

“Yes.”

Lin Jun stared blankly at Gu Nan, not knowing what he wanted to do. However, she soon found out.

Two ferocious-looking men arrived in front of them. Their expressions looked fearful, and they didn’t quite dare to look at Gu Nan. Clearly, Azure Dragon Hall’s dungeon wasn’t a nice experience.

“You two. I’ll free whoever can kill the other one.” Gu Nan casually threw down two long sabres and said indifferently, “Start.”

They reacted very quickly, picking up the sabres almost simultaneously and slashing downwards at each other.

These two were just ordinary Acquired Realm martial artists. They only knew the most basic hacking and chopping motions. But precisely because of this, every swing of their sabres drew blood, and they both fell down in just a short amount of time.

One had a gash on his face with one eye that had been sliced apart. His opponent was in an even worse state. His thigh artery had been slashed open, and blood was surging out wildly. It looked like he wouldn’t be able to live for long.

But that one-eyed man refused to let him off. He walked forward with a nasty grin while holding the sabre.

“Stop him with your secret technique.” Gu Nan gestured towards Lin Jun.

“Understood…” Lin Jun already guessed this beforehand. She pursed her lips and began using her secret technique. A soft white light rose from underneath her feet, spreading across the entire courtyard.

When the white light swept past Gu Nan, he only felt his heart feel a little more at peace. This time, there was no reaction from the Evil God Temple.

But the one-eyed man froze and stared blankly at the dying enemy in front of him, unable to deal the fatal blow no matter what.

“How do you feel?” Gu Nan appeared beside him and asked softly.

“I-I can’t bear to…” That one-eyed man suffered a sense of compassion. He murmured, “Look at him. He’s so pitiful. He’s dying anyway, so why do I need to deal the last blow?”

Gu Nan nodded. “Didn’t lose rationality, but experienced a severe change in mood… Looks like it’s a technique that induces a change in emotions.”

Lin Jun originally felt happy because of the burly man’s words, but her face suddenly darkened when Gu Nan made such an evaluation.

Even more unexpectedly, Gu Nan brutally snapped the neck of the person on the ground with a kick, then looked back at the one-eyed man.

“See that? He died at my hands. You didn’t kill him, so you didn’t fulfill my requirement. You'd still have to die.”

“Ah! What?” The one-eyed man immediately became enraged, and even his previous emotions faded a little. “That’s cheating! You…”

“Don’t worry.” Gu Nan smiled again and pointed to the maid near them. “See her? I’ll give you another chance. Kill her.”

The maid immediately became frightened and turned to flee, but the shadow on the ground tripped her.

Panic-stricken, she turned around. When the one-eyed burly man saw her flustered expression, his desire to kill rose again.

“Kill her, and I can live…” The one-eyed man looked at the maid with a fierce gaze.

Lin Jun frowned deeply from the sidelines, but she didn’t dare to physically intervene and stop him. She could only try her best to increase the intensity of her secret technique, and in turn, the white light under her feet became brighter and brighter.

The one-eyed man fell into a dilemma again.

He’d look ferocious one moment and compassionate the next. These emotions looked especially strange when they alternately appeared on his face, where one eye had already been cut apart.

Gu Nan coldly observed for a while. Then he simply walked over with a sabre and casually chopped off the burly man’s left hand with a swing of the sabre. The white light seemed entirely useless against Gu Nan.

“Ah!” The burly man screamed miserably. The fierce pain reignited the killing intent in his heart, and he once again raised the hand holding the sabre.

However, although he kept his arm raised for a long time, the blow never fell.

Gu Nan finally smiled and severed the man’s neck with one slash, then told the maid to clean up the mess as he walked towards Lin Jun.

“Not bad. Can I learn it?” He asked with great interest.

This secret technique couldn’t affect him, but it could affect others and make them freeze in place while he killed them. This was equivalent to a crowd control skill, which was truly not a bad skill.

“Only those who use my Goddess Sect’s meditative techniques can cultivate it…” Lin Jun answered dully as she watched Gu Nan kill someone while her secret technique was still active.

Gu Nan had already expected this, so he didn’t say much. He just took Lin Jun along to look for Yan Xiaoxiao.

“Teacher, is she…” Yan Xiaoxiao didn’t know that Tang Xuan had brought a gift over, so she believed that her teacher had found a wife. Her expression instantly looked a little strange.

Gu Nan casually threw Lin Jun at her. “From today on, you’ll practice killing inside the range of her secret technique. You can consider advancing to the Prodigious Realm after you can fully ignore the effects of her technique.”

“Yes.” Yan Xiaoxiao’s expression suddenly became serious when they started talking about her cultivation.

“Oh, right.” Gu Nan changed the subject and asked, “Have you arranged everything on Bai Luoluo’s side?”

“The preparations based on the previous arrangements are complete. The plan starts today… But Teacher, we’ve made so many arrangements for such a grand plan. If Little Bai’s heart isn’t determined enough, she might not…”

“If she can’t break out of this situation, then she can die inside it.” Gu Nan interrupted her with a smile. His tone emitted a coldness that chilled her down to her bones.
