Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-219
The young master Jun had already grown bored and edgy by now. After
teaching the Solitary Falcon some moves of the ‘Nine Eagle
Transformation’ law, clearing his doubts, and watching him practice
them once, the young master Jun simply took off, leaving the Solitary
Falcon to his own measures.
I’m not cut out to be a teacher! The young master Jun muttered to
himself as he left.
Guan Qing Han stood in the middle of his small courtyard, wearing a cold
and complex expression on her face, while her desolate frame resembled a
solitary snowflake in contrast to the flowery setting of her surroundings
owing to the white dress she was wearing at the moment.
“Sister-in-law, when did you come over? Why didn’t you allow Little
Ke to notify me?” Jun Mo Xie approached her cautiously.
The Solitary Falcon’s coffin-like expression was a stark contrast to
this ice-cold expression of Guan Qing Han’s, which seemed to resemble
the snow-capped mountains instead. Although Jun Mo Xie had grown
accustomed to dealing with the Solitary Falcon’s expression, but Guan
Qing Han’s expression seemed to igniting the visual of an infernal
ocean of blood amidst this flowery paradise within his mind.
This is a really marvelous and pleasing sight ah.
“You were busy earlier, so I didn’t disturb you!” Guan Qing Han’s
expression had always been quite cold, but it seemed far more complex
today. Her cool, melancholy and preoccupied eyes were gazing at the
flowers in the courtyard as she spoke in a faint voice: “One could
search the entire Capital, but you still wouldn’t find any plants
lusher than the ones in the Jun Family’s courtyards. Its late autumn
now, and these plants should’ve already withered by now… it’s a
wonder that they still bloom.”
“And even amongst the Jun Family’s courtyards, yours, mine and Third
Uncle’s courtyards have the most lush flowers when compared to the
rest; and amongst these three courtyards, yours’s is much better off
than mine and Third Uncle’s…… I take very precise care of my
plants, but you’re not even here to look after of your plants…. I
have no idea how you manage this…. Isn’t this one big mystery?”
Jun Mo Xie was left completely dumbfounded.
He had long been aware of the observations Guan Qing Han was making at
the moment, but he hadn’t been able to conceal this flaw! Anyway, her
words seemed sure rather than being a casual observation.

He was always practicing, whether it was gathering aura from the
surroundings around him, or circulating the pure Aura from the Hongjun
Pagoda. Although humans were unable to feel this aura, but plants are
very sensitive to it. Moreover, this aura was very beneficial for their
growth, and although it was already late autumn, the plants which dwelled
within a certain range of the young master Jun’s courtyard still
blossomed, making the area a paradise for the human-eyes whereas the
flowers elsewhere withered; this aspect obviously opposed the common
The young master Jun had been aware of this fact for a long time now, but
couldn’t control it nonetheless.
Everyone had already grown accustomed to this since they believed that
flowers could blossom even in autumn if given the proper care. However,
this setting was doomed to be too attractive to the human-eye in case
these courtyards were to continue looking lush and full of life even in
the winters….. when that time came, even a fool could tell that
something was amiss…..
“There’s nothing weird about them, this is just the byproduct of our
Family’s excellent geomancy, ha ha….. so I suppose that it’s a good
thing that you came here to enjoy the happy and joyous life within our
Family, Sister-in-law ha ha……”
Even though Jun Mo Xie was laughing on the exterior, his mind was already
contemplating means to alter this situation; this won’t work; I’ll
switch the flowers here to Plum Blossoms; Plum Blossoms can grow and
thrive openly in the winters without any problems…..
“Ah, I live a happy and joyous life…..” Guan Qing Han’s eyes were
still staring at a green leaf in front of her as she continued in a faint
voice: “Yes…. I’m really blessed…..”
Jun Mo Xie immediately sensed the mistake of his words, and felt like
slapping his mouth for uttering them! Irrespective of her
“Daughter-in-law” status and the respect that came with it, Guan Qing
Han was still a widow in the Family at the end of the day; what enjoyment
would there be in that?
“You’ve had a very hard and exhausting time these past few days.”
Guan Qing Han cleared up her mind a bit, and a faint but rare smile
surfaced on her usually cold face: “Third Brother, I wish to ask you a
few questions… if it’s okay?”
“Please ask Sister-in-law, and I will answer anything that I’m
capable of answering.” Jun Mo Xie immediately replied back.
“Although I don’t know how you did it, but I heard Third Uncle say
that you claim to have already resolved the matter surrounding the Xue
Hun Manor. Even though the Third Uncle seemed convinced, but I really
cannot believe it yet; therefore now that you’re here in front of me,
tell me… have you really taken care of it?”
Guan Qing Han’s head was still hanging down while her eyes were still
fixed at the flowers in front of her. A breeze rolled-in and softly
brushed aside her hair, exposing her delicate skin and half of her fair
neckline and face.
“Let’s say…. It’s at least been temporarily taken care
off…..” Jun Mo Xie unintentionally discovered the beauty of her skin;
and not because he wanted to look at her, but he still stole a glance
since such opportunities were quite rare.
“Since you’re so sure, then I’ll just have to wave aside my doubts
and believe that even though I don’t know where and why you keep going
out all the time these days, but it is only for the betterment of the
Family, and that you just do this in order to make preparations for
dealing with the Silver Blizzard City and the Xue Hun Manor, right?”
Guan Qing Han smiled: “When I heard the Third Uncle speak of this, he
sounded very impressed. By my understanding, the Third Uncle has only
ever admired Grandfather and Father-in-law in this manner; and no one
else. You’re the third man he admires so much!”
Jun Mo Xie’s belly puffed to control his unspoken criticisms; Uncle,
why did you open your mouth so big and leak out so much…. And admire my
means? You might as well list out the things I do…..
“This….that….it’s…. he he, in fact it was just a matter of
chance.” Jun Mo Xie touched his nose, completely unaware of what he was
saying since the sight of her delicate skin was still whirling around in
his eyes. Guan Qian Han on other hand was completely unaware of her
Brother-in-law’s unscrupulous gaze since her head was still hung low.
“I also heard Uncle say that you allowed me to win the last time we
contested; he said that your skills are far superior to mine and that you
were simply exercising control to avoid hurting me…..”
Guan Qing Han simply didn’t know what to think anymore, and her fair
skin suddenly turned a beautiful pink in shade. This hint of blush on her
fair skin was especially very tempting for Jun Mo Xie, and he simply
couldn’t stop himself from stealing a glance of this visual feast.
Jun Mo Xie swallowed down a mouthful of saliva and then replied with
difficulty: “Uncle was just bragging; don’t believe him… I really
don’t have that kind of skill……”
“I am willing to believe it. If you can single-handedly relieve the Jun
Family from its difficulties, then its only reasonable that your strength
is far superior to mine.” Guan Qing Han sighed in comfort: “Mo Xie,
you’ve really grown up… you’re no longer that…..”
Jun Mo Xie was already sweating bullets!
His elder Sister-in-law was only twenty-two years old in age, but she
looked far-older than even the thirty years olds he had met in his two
life-times when she spoke up: “You’ve really grown up…..” Jun Mo
Xie suddenly felt as if something had short-circuited inside his head.
“Sister-in-law, you’re only in your twenties….. it’s difficult to
listen to your words when you talk like old people.” Jun Mo Xie’s
face shriveled up; if he was to revert back to being the assassin he had
been in his previous life, then such words would’ve provoked an
unstoppable storm of bloodbath!
“Uncle said that you’ve been concealing your strengths to bide more
time, and that we’ve all misunderstood you…..” Guan Qing Han
chuckled for a moment, and her face immediately melted like ice, and
seemed as if a glacier had suddenly melted and had given way to
blossoming flowers. She tilted her head slightly and glanced at Jun Mo
Xie with a meaningful glance as she said: “However, there’s one thing
that I just don’t understand….. that previously ridiculous behavior
of yours, was that also a part of this low-key profile you were trying to
“Uh, Sister-in-law, you know, this….. that our…. I was forced to do
all this because of our Family’s situation, ah….. he he….”
“The Family’s situation is one matter, and that I naturally
understand that aspect, but what relation did that have to do with the
rubbish behavior you were exhibiting in front of me?” Guan Qian Han’s
face suddenly turned cold as she turned to face Jun Mo Xie for the first
time today, and stared at him with eyes as sharp as a phoenix’s.
“This… that… it was also….. just a part of…. the
camouflage…..” Jun Mo Xie had already started cursing the original
Jun Mo Xie in his mind; that bastard and his behavior….and now I have
to answer for him…..
“Camouflage? Hmmmmmm!” Guan Qing Han looked at him coldly: “If
there’s ever another one of these ‘camouflage’ activities then, I,
I …… I’ll leave the Jun residence forever, and I’ll never come
back!” Guan Qing Han wanted to say ‘I’ll beat you up’, but
instantly thought that he’d be stronger, and hence hastily changed her
words; these change of words however, were no reflection of her actual
“Yes, yes! From now, I won’t ever dare……” Jun Mo Xie
immediately opened his mouth to say that he wouldn’t, but anyone could
tell that he hadn’t even thought it through…..
“Hmmm, a woman’s honor and integrity….. is that just a joke for you
to make fun of?” Guan Qing Han was clearly very angry at this moment.
“That… what else can it be used for?” Jun Mo Xie opened his mouth
and blurted these words out in a moment of pure muddle-headedness, and
then immediately realized how ill-intended his words sounded.
This sentence was naturally a big taboo; and he knew that he’d be
damned to say them in this life… or the previous one….
“You!……” Guan Qing Han’s anger boiled up in an instant and her
eyes suddenly redden with rage. Then, she took a deep breath as her face
hardened again: “So you haven’t changed at all!” she stated as she
turned around and left.
I need to watch my mouth!
The young master Jun stood stunned at his spot for a little while with a
dejected feeling in his heart, and then suddenly yelled out: “Damn it
Fatty Tang, do you think you’re here to enjoy a life of retirement?
When am I going to see those plans? I’m not in a good mood today, so
make sure that you make me happy… else don’t ask me to help you in
losing weight again!” left with no other choice, he decided to vent out
his anger on Tang Yuan.
Tang Yuan crashed out his room: “Well, well…” waving a pile of
papers in his hand: “You see boss, I’ve already sorted matters out in
accordance with what you said; see, take a look… this should be okay.”
Jun Mo Xie grabbed those papers, and stared at them as he flipped a
couple of pages, and then stuffed them back into Tang Yuan’s hand:
“Yes! Yes, yes this is good!”
“But you haven’t even looked at this properly…..” Tang Yuan felt
a bit wronged upon seeing that his hard work had been ignored in this
Jun Mo Xie rolled his eyes; it is not that he didn’t wish to look at
those papers carefully, but he saw nothing more than incomprehensible
matter in them, and simply understood that it was already beyond his
knowledge… the young master Jun had never anticipated that all the
unlinked gibberish he could remember from his previous life would
actually transform into such a thick pile of business plans in Tang
Yuan’s hands; this Fatty is just too talented…. Why didn’t I find
him in my previous life….
