Chapter 275: If You Can’t Beat Them, Join Them

“What’s going on?”

Chen Chen was confused.

The little morning glory stopped crying and began to tell Chen Chen everything truthfully.

Chen Chen was shocked…

Only a Void Refinement realm expert could ignore everyone and enter the Demon Suppressing Town to approach Chen Chen quietly.

Besides, he was not an ordinary Void Refinement realm powerhouse!

Chen Chen could not help but shiver. He naturally thought of the Heavenly Diabolism.

However, the humans and demons were fighting one another somewhere, even the half-demons of the Heavenly Diabolism were the same.

Logically speaking, it should be the same for the sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism.

Now, it seemed that he had thought wrong. He reckoned that the identity of the Heavenly Diabolism sect master should have been extremely special among the demons, which gave him the freedom to move about.

Besides, the sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism really had an eccentric character. He clearly had the ability to destroy the Demon Suppressing Town, but he couldn’t be bothered to do so.

Instead, he let Chen Chen off the hook for the sake of Little Yellow and the little morning glory.

“Could he be a Botanic Demon too?”

Chen Chen kept thinking about it while secretly feeling scared.

According to the little morning glory, the sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism seemed to also have the Adversity-Overcoming Seal…

He was lucky not to have been killed by such an evil person!

“No! I have to become stronger!”

Chen Chen wiped the cold sweat on his forehead. The feeling of losing control of his own destiny made him feel terrible. He would rather be killed by a Thunder Tribulation than die at the hands of a human or demon.

After all, if word gets out, dying in the hands of God would seem much more glorious than dying in the hands of humans and demons.

“Chen Chen, what’s wrong?”

Xia Xishuang stepped into the tent. She had obviously heard the commotion just now.

Chen Chen forcefully suppressed the unrest in his heart and said with a self-deprecating smile, “Nothing much, I just had a nightmare where I was being chased by a Void Refinement realm powerhouse.”

“Don’t worry, how can a Void Refinement realm powerhouse have the time to chase and kill you?”

Xia Xishuang walked to Chen Chen’s side and comforted him.

Chen Chen subconsciously hugged Xia Xishuang, his heart filled with inexplicable misery and frustration.

‘Not to mention a Void Refinement powerhouse, even Heaven wants to destroy me.’

However, he couldn’t tell Xia Xishuang about it. If he couldn’t solve it himself, there was definitely nothing she could do. Telling her would only make her feel even more troubled, which was unnecessary.

Xia Xishuang said softly, “Chen Chen… no matter what you might face, I’m willing to stay by your side.”

She wasn’t a fool and she knew that Chen Chen must be troubled about something, but since he didn’t want to let her know about it, she wouldn’t probe further.

It stemmed from their mutual trust, and she could totally understand that Chen Chen must have his reasons for choosing not to tell her about it.

Bright early in the following morning.

One of Chen Chen’s communication tokens lit up. It was a message from Lao Hei.

“Chen Chen, I was captured by a big demon, and I have to move to another place to enjoy life. From now on, Hu Xian’er will be in charge of protecting the State of Jin!”

Seeing this message, Chen Chen sulked.

‘Which big demon is Lao Hei referring to?’

Chen Chen did not dare to think any further. Lao Hei was quite competent, and he was further protected by the Dark Guards. Generally, it would be impossible for most Essence Soul realm powerhouses to take him away.

‘Could it be someone from the Void Refinement realm? The Void Refinement realm demons that are free to come over…’

Chen Chen’s cheeks began to twitch. ‘Rivals really tend to meet all the time!’

Since he was a child, Chen Chen had never been repressed by anyone except Heaven, which caused him to suffer huge losses.

“Where are you? Is it safe where you are?”

After a moment of silence, Chen Chen asked.

“I don’t know where I am, but the mountains are beautiful and the streams are clear. It’s quite a nice place. Not only is it safe, but the treatment is also excellent. I’m being served by several pig demons!”

“Hah! Don’t rejoice too soon and get carried away! These are just sugar-coated bombs… Also, if a demon gives you a hard time, remember to tell me!”

After chiding Lao Hei, Chen Chen put away the communication token.

“The sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism, you’d better pray I don’t surpass you in strength one day! Otherwise, I’ll spare your life before making you serve me tea and wash my feet!”

Chen Chen swore and walked out of the tent.

As soon as he left the tent, a female disciple came running in front of him.

“Senior Brother Chen, someone just came outside and asked me to give this to you.”

The female disciple said as she handed a note to Chen Chen.

“Thank you.” Chen Chen took the note, but he had an ominous hunch.

“Senior Brother Chen, I didn’t peek at it!”

“What does that person look like?”

“Eh… I somewhat do not remember.”

Chen Chen was speechless. ‘That person must have used an illusory trick on her.’

Shaking his head, he opened the note to see that there was only one sentence. However, it made his hands shake.

“Enter my Heavenly Diabolism, or the fact that you have the Adversity-Overcoming Seal on you will spread to both human and demon races. If you agree, tear this note up and destroy it.”

The corners of Chen Chen’s eyes twitched as he read that!

‘This is a threat! A blatant threat!’

“What do we do?”

Chen Chen was conflicted, but it lasted for only a second, after which, he ripped the note into pieces and even burned it.

What could he do? If word about his Adversity-Overcoming Seal were to spread, the Void Refinement realm experts of the demon race might be willing to pay a huge price to kill him.

As the saying goes, living in misery is better than dying.

Since he couldn’t beat them, he shall join them.

“Senior Brother, what’s wrong?” Seeing that Chen Chen had burned the note, the female disciple was a bit terrified.

However, no matter how she thought about it, she couldn’t remember who the person who asked her to pass the note to Chen Chen, was anymore.

She didn’t even know why she was willing to help an outsider pass a note to Chen Chen .

Chen Chen smiled and said, “It’s nothing, just a love letter from a pervert to me.”

“Oh, I see! Senior Brother Chen Chen, don’t be too bothered, it’s inevitable that someone as outstanding as you will become the target of perverts.”

That female disciple comforted as she came to a sudden realization.

Chen Chen said with a mirthless smile, “That’s right, there are lots of crooks these days.”

A day without war passed, and in a blink of an eye, it was late at night again.

Chen Chen was still in cultivation, but at the same time, he was continuously asking the system questions in his mind.

“System, who is the strongest within a 500-meter radius?”

“The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan.”

Chen Chen asked continuously.

Since he had promised to enter Heavenly Diabolism, the Heavenly Diabolism sect master should give him a token or inform him of a place to report to.

Hence, according to his deduction, the sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism would more likely than not, look for him again.

As expected.

When it was almost midnight, there was a sudden change in the answer that the system gave him.

“The sect master of the Heavenly Diabolism is the strongest.”

Hearing this answer, Chen Chen got a great shock and hurriedly asked another question.

“What is the strongest thing within a 500-meter radius?”

As the saying goes, knowing one’s enemy well is the key to winning battles.

He wanted to know what kind of demon race the Heavenly Diabolism was.

“The demon that is an innate spirit one meter ahead of you, Host.”

Hearing this answer, Chen Chen’s eyelids twitched.

‘One meter in front of me? That’s really scary!’

‘What’s an innate spirit? Could it be that a spiritual object has become a demon?’

‘Is it the Monkey King, Sun Wukong!?!’

“Ah! What am I thinking!?!”

“You found me?”

A voice rang in Chen Chen’s ears, and he suddenly opened them wide.

There was an empty space in front of him, but Chen Chen knew that the Heavenly Diabolism sect master was right in front of him!

“You could have just come to me directly, why bother sending a note?”

Chen Chen asked coldly as if he could see him clearly.

“Hah, if I came to you directly and you turned me down, I’m afraid I won’t be able to resist killing you.”

That voice rang in his ear again.

“If you want to kill me, go ahead! You and I belong to different races, it’d be normal for you to kill me.”

Chen Chen was full of righteous indignation.

“Okay, I’ll do it then.”

“Please don’t, let’s talk things over calmly.”

Chen Chen was speechless. ‘Why doesn’t this sect master act according to the rules?’

‘He’s making me embarrassed, does he know that?’

“Chen Chen, no matter which sect you used to be in, you must prioritize the interests of the Heavenly Diabolism as long as you join us. Can you do that?”

The voice said.

Chen Chen answered, “If you can do it, I can do it.”

The voice immediately fell silent, and after a long time, a token fell from the air before landing in front of Chen Chen.

“This is the communication token of the Heavenly Diabolism. You can ignore some orders, but there are some that you must obey. Otherwise, the fact that you are a diabolic cultivator and the Adversity-Overcoming Seal shall be spread to everyone.”

Chen Chen took the very ordinary-looking communication token and carefully put it away before stretching his hand into the void in front of him.

Although he couldn’t see him, he could feel very clearly that there was a person right in front of him!

This concealment technique was far better than Yuan Qingtian’s Divine Concealment Technique!

Noticing that his body seemed to be trembling, Chen Chen hurriedly retracted his hand and changed the subject. “You’re intimidating me and coercing me into this. In that case, there must be some benefits to entice me. Can you give me some benefits to comfort my soul after I join the Heavenly Diabolism?”
