However, there was nothing there, not even a shadow. Before he realized what had happened, he felt something whack him right in the skull.
“I said he’s behind you, so he’s behind you. How could you possibly be this stupid?”
The dazed demon finally turned back around, only to see that the fat street vendor had already transformed into Ye Zichen.
Before he could spread out his divine awareness and alert his companions, a staff slammed into his skull.
All the demon could do was stretch out his hand, then let it fall. His expression had already gone blank. He collapsed, head askance, onto the ground.
“I just knew you were a dummy. It was really easy to trick you.” Ye Zichen dragged the demon expert into an alleyway, then efficiently stripped him of all his belongings. Before long, an identical demon expert left the alleyway.
“This will be much more convenient.”
Naturally, this person was Ye Zichen in disguise too. It would take far too long to leave the city as a moth.
If he’d turned into one of the locals, given Gu Li’s caution, there was no way he’d be allowed to leave the city. If he tried, they’d interrogate and investigate him.
Transforming into one of Gu Li’s subordinates was the best solution. In this shape, he could display his diviner-level cultivation without causing suspicion.
Ye Zichen glanced at the stripped demon lying in the alleyway, then hooked his fingers, pulling him into the Yao-Sealing Pagoda.
He couldn’t just kill him and destroy his corpse. In the name of caution, it was better not to use his divine power. He’d throw the demon in the pagoda for now, then figure out what to do next after he left the city.
“Really, what a moron.” Ye Zichen couldn’t help but shake his head and laugh. He’d assumed finding someone to impersonate would take a lot of work; he hadn’t guessed it would go this smoothly.
Suddenly, someone shouted overhead. At first, Ye Zichen didn’t react, but then, the person landed right beside him. Only then did he realize that Li Ju was this demon’s name.
“So, he’s someone of the Nine Li Clan.” Ye Zichen muttered to himself, then retracted his gaze.
Taking Li Ju’s shape was just a start; the hard part came next: he had to test whether this illusion would work even at close quarters, or whether Li Ju’s companions would see right through him.
He drew closer and closer!
Even though Ye Zichen was trying his best to restrain his emotions, it was hard not to feel nervous.
“Li Ju, what are you just standing there for? Did you find him?” A pair of demon experts landed in front of Ye Zichen. Both were diviners, their cultivations roughly on par with Li Ju.
“I didn’t. Come on down and take a break,” said Ye Zichen.
“If you didn’t find him, hurry up and get lookin
