Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-13
Chapter 013: Who is plotting against me?
“It is the absolute truth, Third Young Master!” Tang Yuan grasped his
arm, Jun Xie suddenly felt his arms being wrapped around by a layer of
oil. “They really promised me that! They promised that as long as Third
Young Master appears, they will immediately hand over the promissory note
and won’t do anything else regarding this matter.”
“Oh? They actually said that?” Jun Xie’s face frowned; his eyes
flickered for a moment. Something clearly felt wrong with this. How could
this matter suddenly change its course in such a manner? This was
supposed to be a case of the fatty losing his wife, so how did this
matter suddenly turned all the way towards him? It appeared there was
some trickery involved here, and the target was none other than himself?
This was undoubtedly a set up!
Considering the super idiotic temperament of the original Jun Moxie, once
he heard about how his brother was bullied, he would certainly fly into a
fit of rage. Then, hearing the way the opponents were giving him such
face, he would get carried away to the point of losing himself. His
cockiness will prompt him to set off without any considerations
whatsoever and walk straight into the trap that had already been arranged
by the enemies.
If this scenario was set up by those who were trying to antagonize Jun
Moxie, then the schemers behind this scenario can be assumed to be very
understanding of Jun Moxie’s character!
No, this plot only appears to be targeting Jun Moxie, no one would be
interested in laying down such a detailed scheme for a completely
harmless debauchee. His or her true target was none other than Grandpa
Jun! It may also be possible that behind these perpetrators lied yet
another mastermind. After all, both the Jun family and Grandpa Jun were
not something that normal people can provoke.
Jun Xie examined the fatty before him, secretly wondering what role did
this fatty play in this scheme. Is he a friend or a foe? Observing Tang
Yuan’s current expression of almost crapping in his pants, Jun Xie
concluded: If this fatty is not faking it, then he must be an absolute
sucker! If this fatty is truly faking it, then he would be a god level
actor amongst actors. Not only that, he would also be a very dangerous
person whose true face is very well hidden.
Should he go? Or not?
Jun Xie made the decision in an instant, how can he miss out on such an
exciting event? With his gambling skills, could he actually lose?
Besides, if he chose not to go, then how will he find out who was trying
to plot against him? Jun Xie was not one to allow his enemies to plot
against him within the shadows. Bring them out and kill them! This has
always been his style of handling matters.
Secretly circulating the divine art of Heaven’s Fortune, Jun Xie’s
mouth broke out a hint of smile. Even if it were gambling, I still would
not lose. With such a kind of internal energy at my disposal, it is
simply too easy for me to cheat…
“How many silver bills do we have?” Having made up his mind, Jun Xie
turned towards Little Ke.
Hearing Jun Xie ask the question using the word ‘we’, Little Ke’s
heart was overflowed with the feelings of both shame and joy, her heart
inexplicably feeling a little sweet. She replied with a blush. “After
the Old Master deducted Young Master’s spending money last time, the
silver box currently holds a hundred and twenty thousand silver liang
bills, gold bills at thirty thousand liang, gold leaf at three hundred
liang, white silver at one hundred ingots, fragment silver…”
“Enough. That’s enough. I won’t be using that much,” Watching
Little Ke carefully calculate everything with such detail, Jun Xie
quickly stopped her. Otherwise, this stubborn little girl might even
count out how many copper coins there are…
“Take out fifty thousand silver liang bills, and prepare another dozen
pieces of fragment silver,” Jun Xie said.
“How can this small sum be enough?” Tang Yuan practically jumped up,
his face crying as he begged. “Brother, Third Young Master, these are
not even enough to cover a fraction of it! You are not trying to send me
to my death are you? I am begging you, brother!”
“Fatty, didn’t you say earlier that as long as I appear, then your
promissory note problem will be settled? We are going to gamble, not
going to send them money! Young Master Tang, why do we want to take so
much money with us? Wouldn’t it become a burdensome excess baggage?
Don’t you have faith in my gambling skill that is unrivalled in the
world?” Jun Xie replied.
“Your gambling skill that is unrivalled in the world?” A pair of thin
eyes stared stupidly until it became round in surprise. This feat was no
easy accomplishment for Tang Yuan’s fat face; it was no doubt a highly
difficult manoeuvre. Tang Yuan’s mouth twitched, if it was not for the
fact that his heart was currently filled with dread and depression, he
would probably laughed out loud. He let out within his heart: Your
so-called gambling skill that is unrivalled in the world… I do not seem
to recall seeing you win before… Unless you are talking about the
number of times you lost, then your claim of being unrivalled in the
world might not be too far off.
No matter, as long as you go then everything will work out! As long as I
can get back the promissory note, what do I have to fear? Son of a bitch!
How did I lose my head to go so far as to pawn off my own wife? This
matter is really too strange. Taking less money might be better, at least
the losses will be limited!
Jun Xie placed the bills within his clothes, and then commanded two
horses to be prepared. Tang Yuan had already become impatient; his pudgy
body ‘rolled’ all the way to the door, his small eyes shuttled around
everywhere, looking extremely frightened. “Hurry up, Third Young
Master, if we are unlucky enough to bump into your grandpa while he is
coming back, then it will all be over. You do not know about this, but
every time I come visit your house, I have to endure a tremendous amount
of pressure, sigh…”
Jun Xie laughed as he jumped atop the horse, looking over he said. “The
way I see it, you don’t seem to be that scared today.”
The moment Tang Yuan jumped on top of his designated horse, he weighed
down on the healthy horse causing it to neigh aloud. Its four hooves
turned soft, almost bending down on to the ground. Putting in more
strength, it was finally able to stand up. The horse may be wondering to
itself: I have carried no small number of people. Even when carrying
generals clad in full armor and weapon in hand, I can still run freely,
but why do this person feel so heavy today? One miscalculation and I
almost lost my front hoof!
Jun Xie could not restrain himself and laughed out; he then moved his own
healthy horse forward. Behind him, eight bodyguards with sturdy bodies,
carrying swords on their back followed.
Tang Yuan’s horse too started moving, but with difficulty. It neighed
heavily as it caught up to them.
They went out to the Great Dongfeng Street, which was regarded as the
most extravagant street in Tianxiang City. The street was bustling with
activities and was filled with a steady stream of people; Tang Yuan did
not spare any thoughts for the horse and rushed out, taking the lead. He
rushed far ahead while constantly looking back, his face filled with
worry, apparently fearing that Jun Xie was moving at too slow of a pace.
After turning out of the Great Dongfeng Street, there is a restaurant
located not far to the north, known as the Thousand Mile Fragrance
Restaurant. The Li Family runs this restaurant; behind the restaurant
lies a large unused courtyard, this is the ‘Thousand Gold Hall’
mentioned by Tang Yuan. This secret area is the place for young masters
of noble families to spend big money! In there, there are no limits to
what they will bet for, as long as one can imagine it, one can bet on it!
Jun Xie was just about to steer his horse forward, when a few people
suddenly appeared from the road side. In the lead was a young maiden, she
was walking ahead sulkily and angrily shouted: “Stop following me!
You’re annoying me to death!” The other person was trying to persuade
her non-stop while chasing after her. Following closely behind the both
of them, were eight bodyguards. She seemed like the daughter of a wealthy
Jun Xie took a brief glance at the young maiden, the young maiden was
pouting, but was blessed with good looks. The young maiden who was
already in a fit of anger noticed Jun Xie staring at her like that, took
a deep breath and started cursing him: “What are you looking at? You
lecher!” The young maiden was already feeling highly irritable. Seeing
the notorious playboy, Jun Moxie who also happened to be staring at her,
she suddenly decided to use him as an outlet for her anger.
