Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-139
The first ray of the morning sun was just beginning to light up the sky,
but Jun Mo Xie’s body was already covered in sweat from all the
physical training that he’d been doing for the past few hours. He
casually wiped off the sweat, put on his clothes and started walking
towards the warehouse.
Previously, his uncle had brought in some of the children which they had
rescued from the Huang Hua Hall. Even though Jun Wu Yi had ordered them
to be sent them away to the manor, Jun Mo Xie still wasn’t reconciled
to bearing the cost of their unproductivity. He wished to see if any of
these kids could pay the family back in some manner or the other.
Sowing where you can’t reap isn’t a wise thing to do! Just because we
saved them doesn’t mean that we must bear their burden forever; and
just because we’re supporting them now doesn’t mean that we’re
obligated to rear them forever. Even if a meat pie falls out of the sky,
one have the flexibility to use their hands for protecting themselves,
otherwise the food will only hit you hard on the head and crush you to
So, Jun Mo Xie went to take a look, but he didn’t have any high
expectation from them, and was only hoping that he’d find at least one
or two who’d be worth training.
After all, these boys and girls were already inspected for their value at
the time of entering the Huang Hua Hall!
After an hour of inspecting those children, Jun Mo Xie came out of the
warehouse with a disappointed look on his face. The Huang Hall had
completely rejected these children, and not without reason; these boys
and girls were completely unfit for martial training.
Therefore, left with other option, Jun Mo Xie decided to give up. If a
batch of people with no talent is forced to train, then it would only be
a waste of effort and resources, and would eventually force them to an
A large crowd of people had flocked in front of the Jun residence’s
door. Even though Jun Wu Yi was a crippled man, he was still considered
gentry in the Tian Xiang City. When such a powerful and wealthy figure
sends out a message for acquiring Xuan Beasts, how could every merchant
in the city not swarm to his door?
So, when the Jun residence’s gatekeeper opened the front door, he was
surprised to see a huge crowd gathered in front.
This used to be a very common sight until seven years ago. At the time
when Jun Wu Yi had first suffered his disability, Jun Zhan Tian had
spared no effort to find the best doctors in the country to cure his only
surviving son’s disability. Upon realizing that his son’s disability
was incurable, the old man resorted to buying all kinds of treasures,
rare objects and books to keep his son amused. The already disheartened
Jun Wu Yi was unable to bear his father’s kindness, and would only pick
up one or two items reluctantly. After several years of this, the father
and son duo cleared the matter out and these activities were inevitably
put to rest….
But this time, the message was sent out on Jun Wu Yi’s initiative, and
that too for acquiring a Xuan Beast; so naturally, every merchant in the
Tian Xiang City herded to his doorstep!
Jun Wu Yi sat in his wheelchair again, and slowly made his way towards
the front of the line which was snaking out of the door. He had already
understood Jun Mo Xie’s intentions; if Jun Mo Xie had wanted to acquire
a Xuan Beast, then he would have simply done it himself, and would have
never bothered his uncle with it. Since he didn’t wish to undertake
this matter on his own, it can only mean one thing: Mo Xie doesn’t want
other people to find out that he’s searching for Xuan Beasts, or at
least doesn’t want people to know that these beasts are being bought
My nephew often acts in weird ways, but I have to admit that Mo Xie
always puts a lot of thought into his actions, and is always very
rational. Even though Jun Wu Yi didn’t know why his nephew wanted these
beasts, he at least understood the reason behind Jun Mo Xie’s request
for the task to be done by someone else, which is why Jun Wu Yi
personally picked the beasts out from the lot.
He deliberately picked out the best beasts from level one to level five,
and in fact, went one step further and picked a pair instead of just one,
and sent the rest of them back. As far as level six or higher were
concerned, he couldn’t even find one merchant who was offering them.
The entire Tian Xiang City didn’t even have a single level six Xuan
beast on sale! Even a damaged level Six Xuan Beast was unavailable!
Upon Jun Wu Yi’s command, these beasts were loaded into cages and were
carried into his yard. Jun Mo Xie saw the commotion and came over; he
made the servants wash those ten beasts.
The grade one beasts were rabbits, the level two beasts were winged
raccoons, level three beasts were wolves; level four’s pick were bulls,
and the level five Xuan Beasts were iron-skinned snakes….
Jun Mo Xie waved his hands and asked the servants to leave. Then, he
walked over to the first cage comprised of the two rabbits and stopped
for a moment. The two rabbits didn’t even open their eyes to look at
him, and completely ignored his presence. He rubbed his nose, and
stationed himself in front of the cage with the winged raccoons, but
still didn’t get any response.
Cage three…. But still no reaction!
Jun Mo Xie was beginning to lose faith in his judgement and was beginning
to wonder if he was wrong in a making this assessment. But doing this
half way wasn’t in the hitman’s nature, and even though he didn’t
expect much, he walked over to the fourth cage. He suddenly heard a
‘hiss’ sound which came from the cage beside the one he was standing
in front of. The iron skinned snakes in the cage besides had snaked
towards the edge of their cage and were shaking their tails while their
eyes were staring at Jun Mo Xie’s body!
Soon, the two bulls in the cage in front of him also opened their eyes to
look at Jun Mo Xie.
Jun Mo Xie’s heart sprung up with joy.
The confused bulls looked at him, then looked down, then looked up at him
again, and then started looking around them, and then looked the Jun Mo
Xie again. A ray of hope started to emerge in their eyes as they
continued to stare at him, almost as if his body was exuding seeds of
immortality, and it appeared that they were looking forward to something
The more distant cage with the snakes in it, had already started to shake
since the snakes were ceaselessly shaking their tails while banging their
heads against their cage, and those two pairs of eyes were still firmly
fixed at Jun Mo Xie. They seemed so anxious that if they hadn’t been
imprisoned in a cage, they would’ve already rushed towards the young
Jun Wu Yi was watching from the sidelines, and although he noted this
strange behavior, he couldn’t explain the reason behind it; also he
couldn’t help but notice that his nephew was seemingly indifferent in
the face of this anomaly.
Jun Mo Xie calmly took a couple of steps backwards as his face remained
expressionless, defying the ecstasy of his heart.
Only a pig wouldn’t understand the meaning of this!
Either ‘The art of unlocking the heaven’s fortune’ or the Hongjun
Pagoda, or both were mysteriously causing these Xuan Beasts to get
attracted towards Jun Mo Xie! This sole discovery itself was worth a
What was the most dangerous place in the entire Xuan Xuan continent? If
this topic was ever raised, then no one would say the Blizzard Silver
City, because even though the Blizzard Silver City was very powerful and
arrogant, even they wouldn’t take a man’s life without any reason.
However, there was one place on this continent which would; and every one
was aware of this place, so even the most ordinary of men would only give
one answer: the Tian Fa forest!
The paradise of Xuan Beasts and the infernal hell of humans! Even if a
peak Spirit Xuan ventured into the Tian Fa forest, then they were quite
likely to lose their life to the dangers of the forest!
But Jun Mo Xie didn’t need to afraid of it anymore.
But what did this mean?
What items are considered most valuable in the Xuan Xuan continent?
High grade herbs, healing Dans, Xuan Qi fruits, Xuan Beast’s Xuan
Cores, or Xuan Beast’s cubs?!
And where all these rarities produced in abundance? The answer will still
remain the same – The Tian Fa forest!
No one had dared to venture out into the depths of this forest for
millions of years…..
However, Jun Mo Xie’s body seemed to be attracting high-end Xuan
beasts’s love and affection…. This could be the best way to increase
strength and become rich!
However, Jun Mo Xie still wasn’t convinced if relying on Xuan Dan and
herbs was a good way to increase power and upgrade ‘The art of
unlocking the heaven’s fortune’….
Jun Mo Xie’s heart was beginning to feel a strange sense of agitation,
and just then the Hongjun Pagoda started to spin. This rotation of the
Hongjun Pagoda ignited a very special and wonderfully strange feeling in
his heart….. like he was….. Despised.
Or laughed at; almost like someone was carrying a mountain of gold, but
would be required to beg people for food… only to be mocked at in the
This sentiment left Jun Mo Xie feeling very unhappy all of a sudden, It
seems that I have an issue!
But Jun Mo Xie really didn’t know what this problem was, but could
sense that it was a big problem nonetheless. In fact, he felt like the
beggar who was holding a gold bowl in his hands, but was still begging
people for rice!
His heart perceived a feeling of emptiness, but he really didn’t know
how to overcome it…..
This is such a great tragedy!
If one must compare Jun Mo Xie to a beggar with an expensive bowl in his
hands, then a diamond bowl would be more suited in this situation…. in
fact no matter how valuable his bowl was, he’d still have to beg for
As the Hongjun Pagoda started to spin, almost all the Xuan Beast’s
cages came to life. In fact, the beasts who hadn’t taken any notice of
his presence earlier, namely the level one, two and three beasts, were
also staring at Jun Mo Xie now, while constantly banging their bodies
against their cages, almost as if they simply couldn’t wait to rush out
of their cages and land straight into Jun Mo Xie’s arms…..
Jun Wu Yi was staring in disbelief from the sidelines; how is this
happening? What is Mo Xie doing?
He’s just been walking back and forth since he’s arrived here, and
seemingly hasn’t done anything, but then why are the Xuan Beasts acting
out in this manner?
What is going on here?
At this point, a servant came in and reported: The Young Miss of the Dugu
Family has arrived.
