Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-138
The moment the youngster heard the reference to the ‘little
princess’, a ray of light gleamed in his eyes, reflecting a hint of
desire and longing. It seemed that the youngster was attracted to the
charms of the little princess, and had been pursuing her for a long time
Inside the middle carriage, sat a young girl, dressed in white colored
clothes; only sixteen or seventeen years in age by the looks of it, her
picturesque elegance couldn’t be described in mere words, but her face
reflected a hint of cleverness, and it would seem that she wasn’t
exactly a law-abiding citizen, and was probably on the naughtier side of
the spectrum. At this time, due to the constant shaking of the carriage,
she was holding the hand of the white bearded man who was sitting next to
her: “….. Third grandfather, why would you hide such things from me?
You told me just enough to get me interested, so now you need to tell me
The old man was sitting with his eyes closed, and didn’t seem very
different from a corpse at the moment. He opened his eyes and his face
wrinkled, while his heart was inwardly cursing: I’m finally beginning
to realize why people are so afraid of her! No wonder the old man wanted
the little princess to be escorted away…. He just wanted to breathe a
sigh of relief by removing his burdens; and he must even be rejoicing
from the pains that she will inflict on the others….if only I had known
“Little girl, while we are away from the Blizzard Silver City, I will
tell you a story which is being talked most about these days….. I can
also tell you the story of the horses which look like dragons, or about
how I got so old…. Little girl, your grandfather is getting old now,
and the story which you want to hear is over a decade old, so I don’t
really remember it very clearly anymore… do you think that my old bones
are lying to you?”
The old man was almost on the verge of crying; had he known about the
little princess’s temperament, then he would have spared himself from
signing up for this errand.
I really hate this…. When I received this news, I thought this will
relieve me of my boredom and would help me in finding some inspiration.
But it appears that I won’t even be able to find any relief here! It
would’ve been better if I tossed my old bones into a wreckage….
“Why would you start the story, and then suddenly stop it… you’ve
left me hanging…..” the little princess pouted her mouth in distaste,
while swaying her body like a pampered little baby: “Third Grandfather,
you’ve barely mentioned the Jun Family, and that Jun Wu Yi….. and
then you also told me that big sister shared a touching love story with
that man, but then you haven’t told me any further details….”
The third elder groaned; this story was a taboo inside the Blizzard
Silver City, and no one would talk about this affair very easily. He had
only mentioned this story to her in order to stop her from troubling him,
but little did the old man know that this tale would attract her
interest, and would keep her imagination glued to it. She had been
nagging him for more details ever since…..
Allow my old bones some rest….. you’ve been asking me about this
since last night… it’s been over fifteen or sixteen hours now….

“Younger Brother, you come and tell the little princess a story. If you
exchange positions with your elder brother this once, then I’ll always
owe you one!” the third elder proposed an exchange in positions.
“Well, only if you remember that you’ll owe me one later….. the
word has it that there’s an old lady in this empire who found a ghost
with a long tongue which vomits blood. The ghost seeks beautiful
princesses, and drips blood on them….” The sixth elder was clearly in
no mood to be trifled with.
“Ah – no! No! No! I don’t want to hear the sixth grandfather’s
story…. I want to hear the third grandfather’s story!” the other
old man hadn’t even finished his sentence when the little princess
cried out and hastily refused his narration.
“Third Brother, you see that I tried to take your place, but the little
princes won’t allow me to…. ha ha ha…… third brother, please
don’t forget that you still owe me one for trying ha ha… I guess
it’s your job to make the third princess happy again; meanwhile I can
get some more sleep…..” the sixth elder started laughing out loudly.
“Despicable! Shameless! You have no code of brotherhood!!” the third
elder cursed out in resentment.
“Third Grandfather, do you hate Xue’er, ah?” The little
princess’s eyes instantly gleamed tearfully, and she made a crying face.
“What, how?” the third elder denied flatly: “I feel bad that
Xue’er even thought so!”
“Then you have to tell me the story about big sister and Jun Wu Yi,
otherwise it will mean that you hate Xue’er.” The little princess’s
face immediately transformed the look of anger to that of joy, and her
joyful face started beaming a happy smile again.
“…..” the third elder held his breathe, praying that he’d
What sin’s debt am I being forced to pay here…..
As the wheels rolled, the princess continued to chatter in high spirits,
and didn’t shut up for even a single minute. Even though the third
elder was an able bodied Spirit Xuan, his old wrinkles gradually
continued to deepen from the torture, and as his spirts continuously left
his body, his disposition started nearing that of a Tian Xiang City
~ In another direction ~
Another team of people had been marching towards the Tian Xiang Imperial
“Guo Shi, between you and me, this whole Xuan Core incident is very
risky… it is likely to bring more harm than good.” The speaker was a
thin-bodied middle-aged man dressed in black clothes, who was sitting on
a horseback. The rigid lines on his face spoke of all the bitter
tragedies of wars he had suffered in his life, which seemed to igniting a
feeling of rage inside him.
“This border does look dangerous at first, but since the Yu Tang Empire
has been living in peace for so many years now, so there shouldn’t be
much of a problem. Moreover, since the three princes of the Tian Xiang
Empire are wrangling for power at this point, we should push the wave and
add to the billows so we can fish in troubled waters, and profit from the
circumstances. Besides, with me around, even if the opposition army was
equally matched in strength, I don’t think that anyone will be able to
stop me from leaving the Tian Xiang City if I so chose to.” The speaker
was an elderly man dressed in white robes; his hands were tucked inside
his sleeves, while his hale and hearty face exuded a very leisurely aura.
“Why would you wish to escort me through the Tian Xiang Empire at your
own risk….. the threat is much greater for you than it is for me since
you’ve been at war with Jun Family for years, and have killed so many
of their men in action? Because of the wars that have been waged in the
past, the Jun Family’s descendants are almost exhausted in number… so
obviously this situation is far more dangerous for you than it is for
“Why is this dangerous for me? If the Jun Family had the tendency of
taking this opportunity to take a military action against me, then they
simply wouldn’t have been worthy of being called my enemy.”
The middle-aged man’s cold face smiled calmly, “They say that even if
my victories were unwitting, they were still victories…. but one thing
is for certain…. A few of the Jun Family’s members didn’t die at my
hands! In all fairness, the three Brothers of the Jun Family were better
As he said these words, his face suddenly exposed a color of humiliation,
and he stated angrily: “Jun Wu Hui and his brothers have always been
the enemies that I’ve most admired in my entire life, and I will
probably never meet anyone as good as them. Even if I had died in the
battlefield fighting against them, then I wouldn’t have had a single
complaint from my life. But the manner in which I won the war was no less
than a shame for me. I have come to the Tian Xiang City to escort you;
firstly….. secondly, but more importantly, to find out how Jun Wu Hui
“If he was killed behind his back, then even though he was my enemy, I
will still avenge his death!” the black-clothed middle-aged man’s
face was clearly expressing his anger: “A man with his valor didn’t
deserve to die in the thickets of a conspiracy!”
“I would expect such words from you.” Gou Shi’s face exposed a
profound smile: “Even though I’ve known you all these years, I still
wondered if you ever tried to get him killed in secrecy?”
“What would you even say that? If there was anyone who wanted the three
Jun Brothers dead in secrecy, then that was you, not me!” the
black-clothed middle-aged man turned around to face his companion, and
glared at him.
“The Frog at the bottom of the well always thinks that he’s the best
since there’s no one around.” Guo Shi’s eyes were still calm in the
face of his companion’s glaring eyes: “I can assure you that I had
nothing to do with Jun Wu Hui’s death. Although I did intend on getting
him killed, and I even made some arrangements, but in the end, I had no
part in his death.”
“Well!” the middle-aged man’s look changed to a very ferocious one
as he shouted out: “That was a military matter, why would you stick
your nose into it?” he paused for a second, and then suddenly yelled
out even louder: “Who are you to stick your nose into it?!”
Guo Shi was silent for a long time, before he finally stated: “Zhao
Jian Hun, some things aren’t just military matters…. Sometimes you
also have to think about the country and your family…..” he was
unable to finish his sentence, and started gazing into the night sky in
front of his eyes instead.
Zhao Jian Hun, the middle-aged man in black clothes was the first general
of the Yu Tang Empire, and was Jun Wu Hui, Jun Wu Meng, and Jun Wu Yi’s
Zhao Jian Hun smiled bitterly and said: “Jun Wu Hui and Jun Wu Meng
might be dead, but Jun Wu Yi is still alive…… I will find my
redemption one day, and only then will I be free from the humiliation of
“The four consecutive victories over these past years have really
driven me mad! Did you know that?” Zhao Jian Hun looked up at the sky
~ In another direction ~
This border was being stained by another squadron, who had borne
tremendous hardships to get here in time. This border was associated with
the Shen Ci Empire.
The distant savanna was led by a middle-aged, black-clothed, iron-cladded
man; small flacon which was resting on his shoulders flew into the sky as
his face exposed a gentle smile: “A peak level nine Xuan Beast’s Xuan
Core? That’s indeed a good thing; if it wasn’t for such a treasure,
then I wouldn’t have been able to exchange blows with some of the other
heroes of this world. I live for these joys of life!”
[TL’s note: the Shen Ci Empire is a savanna land.]
This tall and straight standing middle-aged man had a very slender body,
and even though his face seemed very ordinary, it still exuded an
unexplainable breathtaking charm. His long hair wasn’t restricted in
any way, and was flowing straight down his shoulders. His charismatic
temperament had gained him the support of the savanna, and he was
practically worshipped in his land! He stood overlooking the heavy
blanket of darkness which covered the Tian Xiang Empire, almost as if he
was the creator of all beings!
“Tian Xiang City, I’ve arrived!” this man was known as the
‘Falcon of the Savanna’, and was one of the strongest of his
generation. His looked and the sky, and roared as the weather started to
take a turbulent turn over the savanna!
At this point, his troops scattered into numerous smaller factions,
mostly comprising of three or five in number, and the largest faction was
no greater than twelve, while some men even went alone; but all teams had
the same target in sight – The Tian Xiang Imperial City!
All these teams started to converge towards the Tian Xiang Empire…..
At the same time, inside the distant Tian Fa forest, all kinds of
mysterious Xuan Beasts were flying above the forest at lightening speeds,
disturbing the peace of the Tian Fa forest with the fluctuation of the
winds that they brought along with their tyrannical speeds. They rushed
over the forest as they continued to carry forward. The animals inside
the Tian Fa forest were unable to understand the reason behind this
suddenly human unrest….
After a long while, a shocking roar sounded in the skies: “If we allow
a peak level nine Xuan Core to fall into the hands of another, then it
will be a shame like no other!” this overwhelmingly thunderous sound
caused a ruckus inside the hearts of the wildlife of the Tian Fa forest,
and left the living creatures of the forest trembling in fear…..
