Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-203
[TL: Hey guys, some stuff came up, and I had to take off. Sorry about
that, but I’m back now.
Heads up; long chapter ahead.]
“So my senior wishes to bully me? Well, in that case, I request that we
greet each other for a fight!” the innate arrogance of Hai Chen Feng
took control of his better judgement, and he thought to himself, since
you know that you’re stronger than me, you think you can just bully me
around by using sheer force? I would rather die at your hands before I
let you intimidate me! Whatever the outcome, Hai Chen Feng is also the
disciple of one of the ‘Eight Great Masters’! You really think you
can frighten me that easily?
It must be mentioned that the Blue Master, Meng Hong Chen was a rather
reclusive and odd character, and never talked to his disciples about the
outside world. He had defeated the Solitary Falcon several years ago in a
rather secluded battlefield, and therefore Hai Chen Feng naturally
didn’t see the fight; in fact, he hadn’t even heard too many rumors
about it. So much so, that Hai Chen Feng actually hadn’t been able to
recognize the man he was confronted with, and had no idea that this man
was as renowned as his own master, and was another one of the ‘Eight
Great Master’, The Solitary Falcon!
“Ha ha, there’s no need for such formalities, this battle was
predestined by the heavens!” the Solitary Falcon laughed loudly and
then suddenly dashed downwards as swiftly as the clouds, and extended his
palm to strike his enemy.
Hai Chen Feng grunted angrily, and then unsheathed his Azure-blue sword
speedily with a ‘whoosh’.
Bang! The Solitary Falcon’s right hand collided with Hai Chen Feng’s
sword, and the collision gave rise to a loud noise.
Hai Chen Feng’s heart was left amazed since he had barely ever come
across someone as amazing as this man he was confronted with; although
the collision was equally matched. He could sense that the man in front
was much stronger than him since even though the collision was equally
matched, it was still a bare hand against a sword, which obviously meant
that in case he tried to use fist techniques to fight against this enemy,
he’d have no chance of winning the battle. A storm of doubts started
emerging within his heart as he began comprehending the enormity of his
He could clearly tell that he was no match for the man in front, but
still had no idea why his opponent wasn’t taking the initiative to take
the upper hand.
There was a special reason as to why the Solitary Falcon had been roaming
around, looking for someone to fight with. Over these last few years, he
had mostly spent his entire time training atop snow cladded mountain
peaks, having chosen Eagles and Falcons as his opponents, and had been
slowly learning from their flight trajectories, their fighting styles,
their hunting tactics, their attacking postures, owing to which he had
been able to evolve his original ‘The Nine Eagles’ style into a more
profound and much more powerful set of strokes: ‘The Seventeen
This set of strokes was potentially were powerful, but since this style
was still in the early phases of its development, it was far from being a
proper style and the linkage between different strokes had been giving
the Solitary Falcon a headache like no other. Hence, the Solitary Falcon
decided to seek out worthy opponents since it would help him in
understanding the deficiencies of his style, and moreover would pave the
way to making the necessary improvements to his style; however, he
hadn’t been able to achieve his objective so far.
He was well aware that the other Great Masters weren’t sitting idly
either, which is why he knew that they wouldn’t assist him with his
idea; or perhaps he just didn’t want them to see the tail of this
Therefore, he naturally wasn’t left with many known options…..
Moreover, the other Great Masters were all slightly stronger than the
Solitary Falcon, and when it came to a real battle, he’d have to use
his tried and testing moves rather than these experimental ones which
made the thought of provoking them on intention a completely meaningless
All this had rendered the Solitary Falcon completely helpless in his
The possibility of using Feng Juan Yun for his experiments was still a
more plausible alternative, but any encounter between these two mortal
enemies was bound be a battle between life and death! In such a
situation, the Solitary Falcon would obviously find it very difficult to
practice his new styles since it would mean only one of two things;
He’d either get bullied, or he’d end up courting his death…..
Moreover, even if he was capable of assuring his safety, he still
didn’t wish to leak out this new and secret style to Feng Juan Yun. The
Solitary Falcon wanted to prove his superiority to Feng Juan Yun, and was
rather hoping that this new style would help him in achieving his
objective one day!
Apart from these options, there weren’t too many people left in the
world who could possibly qualify to contend against him.
The Solitary Falcon did contemplate the idea of going into the Tian Fa
forest to polish his style but the thought of the power that watches over
the Tian Fa forest was enough to make him reconsider, and he had
eventually decided against going there: I’d end up into a Xuan
Beast’s shit if I go there…..
At the end of his tether, the Solitary Falcon decided to follow the only
remaining workaround: casually fight whoever he could find! No matter who
the person was, as long as the man was a famed expert, the Solitary
Falcon would try to seek the said-person out in order to combat against
them; even if the man was a disciple of the Great Masters….. since
these men in particular would be better trained and would have superior
knowledge of their skills, they would only help him in polishing his new
As a result, the Solitary Falcon had been travelling north and south,
constantly seeking out known experts. However, he had been very
disheartened in the recent past upon realizing one thing: after fighting
these so-called hundred or so ‘experts’, not only had he not been
able to enhance his skills, his expertise with this new style had
actually seen a decline!
The reason behind this unwanted result obviously wasn’t very difficult
It is just as it happens in a game of chess; when one plays a weaker
opponent repeatedly, one eventually tends to decline from their
In this state of gloom, the Solitary Falcon accidentally came across the
rumor surrounding the Xuan Core, and then immediately decided to travel
all the way to the Tian Xiang City to catch up with this entire situation
in time. However, just when he was finally able to find exactly what his
heart had been craving for, two extremely powerful Xuan Beasts came out
of nowhere and stole the Xuan Core in front of his eyes.
It was needless to say that this incident was greatly detrimental to both
Shi Chang Xiao and the Solitary Falcon’s interests!
Shi Chang Xiao’s trip to the Tian Xiang City hadn’t been a long one,
but the strenuous effort that the Solitary Falcon had taken to cover this
long road had completely gone down the drain. The Solitary Falcon’s
mind was completely imbalanced even the next day, and he eventually
decided to go up to Shi Chang Xiao’s doorstep, looking for trouble.
However, upon reaching the man’s camp, he was made aware that the Great
Master had already left the previous night…….
Extremely dejected by the way things had turned out, the Solitary Falcon
decided to leave as well. As for his original plan of using the Jin Yang
Bang Gang – if there’s no decent expert in this city anymore, then
what’s the point of using that Jin Yang Bang gang now? All that
useless-gang was supposed to do for me was to locate high quality experts
I could fight against…. But now that the Xuan Core is gone, what good
would they be able to do for me!
However, he had never expected that he would actually receive a ‘war
challenge’ from the Jin Yang Bang gang’s hired hand!
The initially dejected Solitary Falcon had finally found an outlet to
vent out his frustration! He charged towards this Maple Forest animatedly
to vent out his grief, and was in-turn left overjoyed. He could clearly
see that the man in front was a disciple of none other than the Blue
Master himself! Moreover, this man had already reached the Peak of the
Sky Xuan realm!
It was almost as if the heavens had listened to his prayers!
Moreover, it was rather obvious that this man didn’t seem to recognize
the Solitary Falcon!
The initially frustrated master was left thanking his stars!
Therefore, the Solitary Falcon naturally decided against rashly exposing
his true identity for the fear that this man may kneel down to his knees
screaming ‘Master!’, which would obviously be detrimental to his
Hence, he withheld this key information since he wanted to fight this man.
This person clearly seems to be a disciple of the Blue Master, and since
he’s already reached the peak of the Sky Xuan realm, it could be
presumed that he’s one of the best disciples Meng Hong Chen has ever
trained. If I can have a good and hearty battle with this man, then I
believe that I’ll be able to find the inspiration I’ve been seeking
Therefore, he deliberately decided to suppress his real strength even
though the opposition was fighting in full swing, and soon the two of
them had exchanged at least a dozen blows.
At this moment, an uninvited guest arrived at the scene!
This uninvited guest was obviously the young master Jun!
Although the young master Jun was an expert beyond match when it came to
tracking people, but he had been wracking his brain to no avail initially
since the Solitary Falcon was no ordinary man either. However, it really
didn’t take his expertise to locate the Solitary Falcon in the end
since it wasn’t awfully difficult to spot a sky full of drifting red
The young master Jun quickly concealed himself nearby, and started gazing
at the Solitary Falcon as if the man was bullying a young child. However,
Jun Mo Xie’s simply couldn’t help but admire the man’s dedication:
even though he is one of the ‘Eight Great Masters’, he really isn’t
worried about taking the rogue road ah….
As he continued to watch the Solitary Falcon’s fight with this
blue-robed man, he suddenly realized something really strange.
Even though the Solitary Falcon seemed to doing his utmost, he still
seemed a bit overwhelmed. However, as Jun Mo Xie continued to watch the
fight, he started to realize that the Solitary Falcon was repeating the
same strokes again and again in a loop, and wasn’t making any attempts
to use any variations at all.
On the other hand, the man in blue was using a plethora of skills and
styles, and was basically going all-out.
It seemed to him as if this Great Master was actually just using this
blue-robed man as a dummy for his personal practice!
The Solitary Falcon’s body didn’t seem to be moving much; in fact his
legs were completely immobile. His hands on the other hand were moving in
weird manners; he’d sometimes extend his arms wide, sometimes he’d
stretch them forward… he was opening and closing his palms in very
weird styles as well…..
Jun Mo Xie continued to watch for a long time, and a strange sense that
something was amiss kept growing stronger and stronger in heart.
Suddenly a thought emerged inside his brain: this is clearly the Solitary
Falcon’s homemade style! And this style has been inspired by the body
of an Eagle or a Goshawk! This is a bit too obvious; but what’s even
more obvious is that even though he has created this technique, he
hasn’t yet perfected its system!
He could tell from the manner in which these strokes were designed, that
each stroke of this style had a dedicated line of power in support, and
even though these moves seemed very strange at first, but once perfected
could produce a tremendous amount of power.
Jun Mo Xie silently counted thrice, and was finally able to determine
that the style contained a total of seventeen strokes! The Solitary
Falcon was using the entire style in a single sequence; hence it wasn’t
very hard for him to determine the total count of moves in the style.
Although this style was capable of producing a large amount of power, but
it seems that he has his heart set on not killing his opponent, which is
why he is deliberately suppressing his strength to adjust his output to a
mediocre level, but in case he was using this style to contest against a
man of equal strength, he wouldn’t be able to keep up. However, coping
up with someone much weaker than himself is much easier for him since
even if the opponent occasionally tears a hole in his style, he can
easily make up for the loss.
Moreover, the hitman could tell form his experience that in case the
Solitary Falcon employed his complete strength in using this style, he
could easily produce a much more powerful strike! But the Solitary Falcon
wasn’t doing it on purpose! Even though he was using his true strength
to defend himself, he didn’t seem to be using it to attack!
Jun Mo Xie suddenly realized why the Solitary Falcon wasn’t interested
in the Xuan Core, but had still come all the way to the Tian Xiang City;
why the Solitary Falcon was so eager to fight, but still wasn’t
interested in fighting an expert of equal ability!
This is the reason behind all of it! Ha ha, why didn’t I see it
As he continued to watch the style which the Solitary Falcon was
developing, he couldn’t help feeling a bit nervous. Each move and
action of the Solitary Falcon’s style seemed strange, but vaguely
Jerky….. too raw! It can be said that these moves can be turned into
something very powerful, but at the moment these moves can only be best
described as the ‘seventeen lose’ strokes! It lacks polishing, and
cannot yet be called a proper martial style, but it’s already good
enough to be brought into a prototype stage!
The Solitary Falcon’s moves seem very similar to the actions of an
Eagle! The Wingspan stroke, the Soaring Eagle stroke, The Charging Eagle
Stroke, the Rabbit-fighting Stroke…… and these I will work upon! And
after a very systematic study, once I’m done tampering with all his
strokes, I’ll make them far more powerful! Ha ha ha……
