Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 99: One After Another

Lei Wuji's unbridled laughter attracted the attention of many people around him.

As an outstanding participant in the Acquired Realm group, many people recognized Li Lan. They immediately understood what happened when they recalled how Nebula Martial Arts Hall had rejected her earlier.

"Ha, who knows what Nebula Martial Arts Hall was thinking. They rejected Li Lan just like that."

"Right? Now she’s been accepted as the apprentice to a Prodigious Realm master, thanks to them!"

"Speaking of which, didn't Hall Master Lei say he won't accept any more disciples?"

"Perhaps Li Lan's talent was good enough to move him…”

The conversations came from all around them. Although the rest area was noisy, these voices were particularly harsh and kept drilling into the ears of everyone in Nebula Martial Arts Hall.

Lu Danze finally couldn't stand it anymore. He suddenly stood up, pointed to Li Lan, and said, "It was Gu Nan who rejected you back then. If you have the ability, then look for him!"

"Lu Danze, what nonsense are you spewing?!" Zhang Tao suddenly turned around, his expression terrifyingly dark. He was so furious that he almost slapped Lu Danze.

Lu Danze had no more scruples after declaring that, so he continued, "Am I wrong? What does a young master like him know about martial arts hall recruitment? He recruited Lin Yunyun just to get a new mistress for himself!"

Lu Danze seemed to have caught an opportunity to finally vent his resentment.

He was a pure martial artist. He didn’t know the inside story of the Long family’s collapse, nor did he know much about Hu Wei's power and status. He only knew that Gu Nan’s actions were completely like that of an amateur trying to interfere with professionals.

"Oh? Are you talking about me?" A flat voice came from behind him, sounding like he was asking a trivial matter like "Have you eaten yet?"

Zhang Tao froze. He quickly turned around to speak, but Lu Danze beat him to the punch, "That’s right! If you have the ability, then prove to me that you were right!"

He pointed to Lin Yunyun behind Gu Nan. "Prove that she really does have talent, and she wasn’t selected because of your selfishness. Don’t you agree, everyone?"


Lu Danze's last question was addressed to the people of Nebula Martial Arts Hall, and there was a burst of applause.

People nearby also spoke up. After all, most of the martial artists who were willing to come to the Martial Arts Competition hated people who abused their power and made under-the-table deals.

Lu Danze looked at Gu Nan provocatively, wanting to see how this young master would deal with this situation. ‘If I announce Gu Nan’s absurd story to the public, then even the Gu family will have to consider their moves carefully, right?’

Lei Wuji also watched the proceedings with great interest. He was very happy to see infighting among members of Nebula Martial Arts Hall.

However, nobody expected that Gu Nan didn't speak at all. Instead, he landed a kick on Lu Danze’s knee.


This kick looked slow, but its strength was extremely astonishing. Lu Danze's right kneecap was instantly crushed, and his whole leg folded 90 degrees, bending at a horrifying angle.

"Ahh!!! You… Ahh!" Lu Danze exhaled in pain, but Gu Nan kicked again before he finished speaking.

In the blink of an eye, his left leg was also broken, and he fell onto his knees, but the way he knelt was frightening—his two lower legs were in front of his body.

"Young Master Nan!" Zhang Tao hurriedly stood in front of Lu Danze and begged, "Young Master Nan, Danze he…"

"Showing open contempt for a judge—he’s forbidden from participating in the Martial Arts Competition for life." Gu Nan was expressionless as he calmly declared, as if the one who had just hurt someone seconds ago wasn’t him.

Zhang Tao suddenly looked dumbstruck.

Lu Danze felt he’d been struck by lightning. He didn’t even care about his leg injury anymore as he angrily pointed to Gu Nan and roared, "How can you do this?! What right do you have!?"

However, Gu Nan didn't intend to continue speaking. He turned and left.

He didn’t need to explain himself to anyone. It was even more ridiculous for him to prove anything to Lu Danze.

If it wasn’t for the fact that he wanted the Martial Arts Competition to follow the predetermined process, he could even kill Lu Danze. What was there to prove?

"Sir, wait a minute!" At this time, Lei Wuji finally spoke up, "Sir, may I know what your identity is, to disqualify a contestant at will?"

He looked at Gu Nan's back, and the smile on his face seemed certain of victory.

In Lei Wuji’s opinion, this young man really was too stupid—he openly angered the public… ‘Truly, he gave me the best ammunition to use against him.’

Although Lei Wuji was usually domineering, in reality, he was actually quite the meticulous person behind his rough exterior. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to run such a large martial arts hall.

Sure enough, his words immediately resonated with the countless people present. People kept voicing their agreement and demanding that Gu Nan give an explanation.

If he could disqualify Lu Danze this easily, then who’s to say that he won’t do the same to them in the future? Not to mention Gu Nan's arrogance, which really infuriated people.

Gu Nan finally frowned, turning around again to walk towards them.

Lei Wuji’s smile became even more obvious. He wasn’t afraid of the other party biting back after being cornered. ‘After all, I have an absolute power advantage… Eh?’

Lei Wuji suddenly felt a pain in his abdomen. A black dagger had already embedded itself in his stomach. A strange yet majestic power constantly poured out, completely suppressing his own Prodigious Realm strength.

‘What’s happening? Is it because of this sword?’

Lei Wuji was a Prodigious Realm expert. When faced with a matter of life and death, he roared fiercely and countered with a backhand punch.

However, Gu Nan was even faster, punching him in the face. This Prodigious cultivator was immediately sent flying and fell straight into the crowd.

The power of shadows embedded in his abdomen was still madly destroying his vitality. Even if his life could be saved, his strength would suffer a huge decline.

The entire rest area fell silent. A Prodigious Realm master flew out with one punch from his opponent. This kind of scene was so unexpected that nobody had ever dreamed of it, and everyone instantly lost their voice.

Li Lan looked even more stupefied. She never thought that the master she regarded as the symbol of invincibility would be sent flying like a burlap sack…

More importantly, the culprit was this fellow!

Gu Nan's move was too disruptive; seriously injuring Lei Wuji in the blink of an eye immediately attracted everyone's attention. At once, several people stood up.

"Gu Nan! You've gone too far!" The one to stand up and accuse him was an old man with wrinkled face and gray hair. He was the leader of the Martial Arts Alliance and the respected elderly Hall Master Zhou Xuewen, who commanded great respect from all the martial arts halls.

Hall Master Zhou's beard was trembling with anger. Lei Wuji could be regarded as his junior, but he had been seriously injured right in front of Zhou Xuewen’s face, and it was from a verbal disagreement!

Martial arts halls were special existences. They couldn’t compete with those big organizations, so it was even more vital for them to band together and stick up for each other.

He helped Lei Wuji up and was even more furious with Gu Nan's heavy hand. "Is this how Gu Tianqi taught the younger generation?"

Zhou Xuewen had a very high seniority. Gu Tianqi was the Gu family’s Second Uncle.

The appearance of Hall Master Zhou gave everyone confidence. In the end, evil cannot prevail against good. Someone will always stand up and uphold justice!

At this time, a voice came from the door, "Well said, Hall Master Zhou!"

Everyone turned and saw a neat line of military officers standing there, all dressed in dark green uniforms.

The one who spoke up just now was precisely the young man standing in front of the military officers, while Hu Daobin stood beside the youth with a gloating smile on his face. It seemed that he wanted to see Gu Nan meet a bad end.

The young man said righteously, "Gu Nan, you are suspected of murdering three members of the Fan family. Come with us!"
