Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-232
The Solitary Falcon was aware that he’d have to pay a huge price in
order to obtain this Dan!
In fact, the Solitary Falcon was aware what this ‘price’ would be.
Thus, even though Jun Mo Xie still hadn’t finished, it somehow seemed
that there was no need for him to!
Both men were well aware of what the condition would be!
Even though the two pair of eyes were gazing into each other, seemingly
in understanding, but the slight and quiet smile on their faces concealed
the contest these two men were secretly having! A silent battle to see
who’s more impatient; to see who’d lose!
…and it stayed as such for a long, long time.
Suddenly, the Solitary Falcon shook his head, laughed, sighed and said:
“All I can say is that you can put forth any condition, because this
offer is so tempting that I wouldn’t wish to refuse… in fact, I
can’t refuse; and then there’s you… attaining and maintaining this
sort of temperament at such a young age is nothing short of miraculous!
I, Solitary Falcon, have traveled the entire world, but if you ask me,
I’ve never seen anything comparable to the tiny monster you are.
However, I’m glad that I met you today! But, this time, you’ve
“Oh?” The Hitman’s expression didn’t waver in the slightest as he
maintained his composure while slightly lifting his eyes.
“No one in this world is capable of resisting the temptations of this
marvelous medicine you speak of. As far as I’m concerned, I’m simply
incapable of even denying that I can resist the temptation of advancing
to the sixth level of the Spirit Xuan realm from my current fifth;”
The Solitary Falcon smiled: “However, even though it’s extremely
difficult to resist, but this Solitary Falcon will never allow anyone to
look down upon himself! I would never agree to these terms; even if your
master personally set them!
“Because… I am the Solitary Falcon! The Falcon of the Savanna!” A
flame smoldered inside his eyes as he sneered: “I will only ever do the
will of those gods who reside in the skies; never become the slave of
mere men! And there shall be no exceptions!”
“Well said!” Jun Mo Xie gently applauded his words with a slight
smile: “Perhaps Master Falcon misunderstands me; I’ve never asked for
Master Falcon to become the slave of mere humans! But then, how could I
be mistaken if I haven’t stated my conditions yet?”
“He he… young master Jun, it seems that I’ve underestimated you
even now, however, you cannot deny that this sentence of yours was the
complete reverse of your thoughts, can you?”
The Solitary Falcon was somewhat taunting now. “You’re that kind of
person who’s willing to achieve his goals by fair means or fowl,
moreover, you’d stubbornly seek to maximize your profits in case you
see any! This, I’m confident, I couldn’t have misunderstood!”
Jun Mo Xie was silent for a long time… had he really underestimated one
of the most capable men in the entire world?
He had been manipulating everyone to his will ever since his
reincarnation into this world, however, for the first time in this life,
he found his confidence lacking, leaving him dumbstruck and speechless!
The young master Jun bitterly smiled as he said: “Master Falcon is
right, I am such a person. You made no mistake in judging that about me,
but… you do not agree with the words I haven’t said… however…
“I can still help you in enhancing your cultivation as long as you
promise to do just one thing for me! And if you promise, I will
immediately try to inform my master to collect the raw material required
for refining this Dan!”
“What’s the condition? I’m listening.” The Solitary Falcon
didn’t seem even the slightest bit excited, but appeared somewhat alert
instead. The Solitary Falcon had been in touch with this youngster long
enough to understand that taking advantage of his treacherous mind was
harder than reaching the sky! [Even though the benefits he provides are
extraordinary, but he never acts without incentive and hence the price he
usually asks for, are far above the market-worth of his products. ]
And thus, the Solitary Falcon couldn’t help being on guard, however,
unknowingly this turned his face gray in anticipation.
“I only ask that in case the Xiao Family comes seeking to end this
dispute and the Jun Family goes to war with the Silver Blizzard City; you
lend me a helping hand if I decide to rescue my Third Aunt!” Jun Mo
Xie’s eyes shone brightly: “It will be a rescue operation, but
you’ll be the killer on call.”
The Solitary Falcon paced back and forth about the room for a while as he
pondered over it, and then finally clenched his teeth with determination:
“Good! Just this one thing!”
“It’s a deal!” Jun Mo Xie’s smiled.
“However, at least a year after! If this happens before one year’s
time, then the deal won’t be valid.” The Solitary Falcon smiled
proudly: “I won’t help if you ask me to do this within a year after
the Dan helps me make the breakthrough because I won’t have enough
strength to execute this task! However, a year after, I will certainly be
Jun Mo Xie’s face revealed a heartfelt smile for the first time: “So
This one trait of the Solitary Falcon’s character was the reason he had
been able to keep up with Jun Mo Xie for so long.
He’d never take advantage of anyone.
However, no matter what, he’d never agree to be at a disadvantage!
The Solitary Falcon walked away; with two jars of wine.
Jun Mo Xie retrieved that strange piece of jade from the Hongjun Pagoda
and carefully observed it for a while, but put it back since he was
unable to understand its particulars. However, Jun Mo Xie could
distinctly feel the Hongjun Pagoda’s odor becoming cleaner, fresher,
and livelier as he returned that Jade pendant to the Pagoda, and could
also sense the Pagoda’s Aura becoming stronger and denser with the
passage of time as the energies of these two strange artifacts continued
Jun Mo Xie tugged his knees as he sat down, and started gazing at the
moon outside the window as he immersed himself in his schemes.
[I need to find those three Spirit Herbs as soon as possible in order to
enhance Grandfather’s cultivation level; Also, I need to figure out a
safety-route for saving his life in case something goes wrong… that’s
[Second, this Dan’s refining is also beginning to turn into a pressing
[Whether it is Solitary Falcon or Uncle, their strengths need to be
enhanced as soon as possible. Plus, I can’t neglect those people from
the Tian Fa forest either.]
[Third, I must urge Hai Chen Feng to start the unification of Tian Xiang
City’s underworld factions as soon as possible. We must be sure to get
a grasp over the knowledge of all activities inside the capital city. ]
… One task after another, none easier than the previous, had left the
Hitman frowning as he blankly continued to stare at the bright moon…
As the oil lamp gradually started to set, the young master Jun’s
silhouette got even lonelier in the dark of this night …
Suddenly, a distinctive white figure appeared on the courtyard’s wall.
Though looking from afar, one could clearly see Jun Mo Xie’s puckered
eyebrows, a sight sufficient to deduce that this handsome youngster had
been exhausting his thought and ingenuity, day and night for the sake of
his Family’s future…
This beautiful figure tenderly watched for a long time and then
eventually sighed as she left; leaving behind only a hint of her
In the other partition of the courtyard, Jun Wu Yi sat leaning against
the window; his eyes shut, and face hard with creases… his distressed
eyebrows and unconsciously clenched teeth clearly exposed every tiny
blood vein on his face, vividly illustrating the desolation of his
Hai Chen Feng’s entire body seemed to resemble the waves of the blue
seas as he gently drifted through the crowd comprising the dozen or so of
the Jin Yang gang’s finest members: “The Operation begins! The
management wants to see the results before tomorrow’s first light!”
The gentle moonlight bathed the weapons they held as the crowd silently
raised them in the air, virtually infecting the steel with a faint, yet
dark layer of a lustrous… condensation of blood!
A few people swiftly climbed over the walls from within the Li Family’s
residence, divided into groups of two, and immediately disappeared into
the dark of the night.
Tonight was destined to be another bloody one for the Tian Xiang city…
One of the six major underworld factions, the Spirit Dragon gang had
brought a disaster upon itself.
Though the capital’s six major underground factions had always been
ranked in order of their might, but the disparity between the strengths
of their primary forces wasn’t much. Although the first ranked Jin Yang
gang was obviously stronger than the bottom ranking Northern City gang,
however, not by much; or at least, wasn’t strong enough to overwhelm
and subject them to its whims.
Moreover, these six gangs also had an unwritten understanding between
them, which had allowed them to coexist in a peaceful manner since any
conflict between these gangs could never result in one gang subduing the
other; in case such an incident ever occurred, the remaining gangs would
all team up against the aggressor.
Today however, the Spirit Dragon gang received a message in reply from
the Jin Yang gang;
The situation of these six gangs was getting more and more detrimental to
their sake since they were beginning to get surrounded by an increasing
number of powerful families, which were constantly nibbling away the
existing might of these gangs. In fact, the Northern City gang had
recently been exterminated in its entirety by Old Man Tang.
Alarmed, anxious, and panic-stricken, the gangs were failing to carry out
even the most basic of their operations. And thus, the Spirit Dragon gang
took the lead in raising the proposal for an alliance between the major
gangs, hoping that they could all sail the storm in the same boat.
Naturally, they wanted the most powerful gang, the Jin Yang gang as their
main partner in this alliance.
However, unfortunately, at the time they raised this proposal, the
Solitary Falcon ran amok the Jin Yang gang, beating Jin Feng Lie black
and blue in the process, forcing the “alliance” initiative on a
Today, however, the entire Spirit Dragon gang was overjoyed upon
receiving an unexpected reply from the Jin Yang gang. But, the replying
letter was shredded soon after the Spirit Dragon gang’s leader Long Da
Hai was done reading its message: [This letter demands that we surrender
to their superiority, and bid allegiance to them!]
[This is simply too bold! Has he ever heard of a gang surrendering to
another in these past ten years since we first established ourselves? Jin
Feng Lie, did you even consider that the six major gangs have always been
on equal footing? Why would you dare to propose this?]
Seething with anger, Long Da Hai immediately summoned the heads of his
gang to discuss countermeasures. In fact, his personnel were so incited
by this incident that a vast majority of them were even willing to fight
the Jin Yang gang to death, while many others were clamoring to use this
opportunity for taking control of the Jin Yang gang. However, the Spirit
Dragon gang’s leader was staidly taking his time for making the
decision as he considered his options…
In this awfully noisy moment, the entrance door suddenly exploded with a
‘boom’, sending the wooden shavings flying in all directions. Several
people were left wincing in pain as these wooden shavings cut their
faces, drenching them in blood.
Everyone furiously looked towards the entrance.
A distinct blue light was radiating in the densely foggy night.
The wooden shavings settled down; one man stood at the entrance.
This, seemingly, blue-colored man, stood clad in blue-colored robes with
his hands behind his back as his eyes calmly mapped the room in the
radiance of his azure light; even this man’s eyes were as blue as the
“A Sky Xuan expert!”
The Spirit Dragon gang’s members couldn’t help crying out in alarm
upon seeing a Sky Xuan expert!
A Sky Xuan expert had arrived!
The entire Spirit Dragon gang was left shivering!
“May I dare to ask Sir’s…” Long Da Hai’s mustache trembled as
he hastily stood up, and asked in a respectful manner.
“The Jin Yang gang shall rule the city’s underworld; you have two
choices: pledge allegiance, or die!” The blue-robed man’s ice-cold
eyes seemed a bit strange, like they were bathing in an inexplicable
aura, as he slowly scanned the crowd again while making his statement.
In fact, even his words seemed to be reeking in an acute aura of death!
