Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-243
An imposing bronze colored chariot was galloping at full speed. The four
pairs of beastly war-horses which pulled it were level four Xuan Beasts.
A tender and beautifully blooming golden mums flower adorned the
carriage, and shone with an abnormal brilliance. Eight horsemen valiantly
strode around the chariot on their imposing horses.
The Murong family had arrived at last.
On the face of it, it would appear that the Murong family could not
compare to the Li Family in terms of power and influence. It couldn’t
compare to the Jun and the Dugu Families either. In reality though, the
Murong family was actually one of the most influential families inside
Tian Xiang City. After all was said and done, it was the most ancient and
the robust family. Moreover, it also has the most intimate relationship
with the Imperial Family.
Murong Family’s influence simply couldn’t be ignored.
On top of that, the Murong Family was the only family which was related
to the Imperial Family by the means of a marriage.
None of the other noble families enjoyed this honor.
It could be said that the Li Family was powerful enough to disrupt all
levels of society. Moreover, Li You Ran was considered to be an
outstanding youngster with a lot of impressive talent. However, even
though he had set his heart to win over Princess Ling Meng three years
ago, the Emperor had neither consented to this, nor given any opinion on
it. The Jun Family was a family of martyrs, which had sacrificed many men
to the service of the nation. The Grandfather Jun then had no choice but
to lay down his self-respect in front of Tian Xiang Empire’s Emperor,
to seek a relationship by marriage. This proposal was also tactfully
declined. No one could trust that debauchee, even though the others were
considered reliable. Therefore, if the Jun Family’s proposal to join
the two Families by marriage was refused… then one could imagine how
difficult it had to be.
The Murong Family’s importance in the eyes of the Imperial Family was
extremely difficult to replace.
Some time ago, Murong Qian Jun had passed wrong information. This had
created a huge commotion, and a big mishap had occurred wherein Jun Zhan
Tian had brought about a purge in the capital city. By the end of it, he
had massacred almost one-third of the Imperial Cabinet Ministers in that
purge. There is no need to say that if it had been anyone else, they
would have been executed ten thousand times over this matter. However,
Murong Qian Jun was simply removed from his post to never be hired again.

This clearly showed how close the Murong Family and the Imperial Family
were, and how big an influence the Murong Family had on the latter.
Therefore, how could anyone ever look down upon their power and influence?
The carriage suddenly came to a stop. The eight horsemen jumped down from
their steeds with a loud thud. Amongst these, the guard in the lead
turned a handle and set the carriage free of its horses. Then, he swiftly
moved on to the ornamented door and opened it. He then stood up straight
like a ramrod, holding the door open with one hand.
A short while later, a tall and handsome youngster walked out from within
with a straight posture. It was none other than Murong Qian Jun. Then a
pair of tender feet stretched from the door, marking the arrival of a
young lady, clad in splendid bright yellow clothes. Her face refleacted
arrogance as she leisurely got down from the carriage. Soon after, an old
man appeared. He coughed and trembled as he got down from the carriage,
with two men supporting his frame from underneath.
The bystanders inhaled a breath of cold air.
The Murong Family was worthy of the Aristocratic Hall in every sense of
The grand Murong Family had surprisingly sent their second in command,
who was the old master Murong Fēng Yún’s younger brother, Murong Feng
Perhaps, their reputation was even a match to the Jun Family, the Tang
Family, and even the Prince Equivalent.
Murong Qian Jun and the young maiden dressed in yellow supported Murong
Feng Yu as they started to walk inside.
“Murong Family? It’s quite extraordinary, right? But they are very
arrogant!” suddenly, a cold taunt was heard, which was accompanied by a
peculiar sneer. Every person of the Murong Family stiffened, and many of
their men placed their hands on the hilts of their swords. All of them
looked angry. Who in Tian Xiang City had dared to mock the Murong Family?
Especially at a time when some of their leading members were present?
Weren’t they afraid for their lives?
This had never happened before.

On turning to see who it was, their gazes fell upon two middle aged
people wearing white clothes and cold expressions. One of them had an
angry look spread across his face. His snow white gown had been bathed in
the mud and dirt. A beautiful young lady stood beside him.
It was Xiao Han’s three-man party!
Those without power simply aren’t capable of doing the unprecedented.
However, what if the inciter was more than a mortal?
The Silver Blizzard City was simply too high to reach in the eyes of a
Xiao Han had been feeling that everything was going against him lately,
which had left him feeling very gloomy of late.
He had become quite sullen since his arrival at Tian Xiang City.
Previously, he had walked over to the Jun Family to insult his rival over
his disability, but hadn’t expected the younger generation of the
family to make him look like fool and hurt him. Moreover, Mu Xue Tong had
added more insult to his injury by beating him up further. However, what
had made him really furious was when Han Yan Yao actually sent a gift to
Jun Wu Yi in secrecy. He simply couldn’t bear the flame of jealousy.
After that, his own nephew was seriously beaten-up by a mysterious
master, shortly after the boy’s arrival in the Tian Xiang City.
Fortunately, the boy’s recovery was not an issue after he had been
diagnosed and treated using some of the best medicines available.
However, this only meant that he had failed to take proper care of his
Then he heard the news that the Jun Family’s cripple had unexpectedly
recovered fully from his affliction.
This eventually pushed Xiao Han to his breaking point.
Right now, three families had joined hands to open the Aristocratic Hall
right opposite the Magnificent Jewel Hall. They were obviously trying to
compete with the Magnificent Hall. However, the part most unbearable for
him was that… one of the members in this ‘three family alliance’
was the Jun Family.

He could not tolerate this.
Then, he had strived hard to find his place as the Magnificent Jewel
Hall’s representative for this event. His mental status had improved
after he had managed to oust Mu Xue Tong’s strong opposition to the
same. However, then a carriage had splashed mud across his entire body
just as he was walking over to the Aristocratic Hall’s doorstep.
Could he really have no respite in life? He was almost on the verge of
exploding to death because of the anger he felt.
He rained curses unrestrained as he smashed his heel into the ground. The
impact of his stomp was so forceful that he dislocated his own heel. Such
was Xiao Han’s present mental anguish.
The anger in Xiao Han’s heart kept increasing, and it soon spread to
his guts as he looked fiercely at the Murong Family members who had just
gotten off the carriage. Anyone could tell that his stare was
deliberately meant to provoke them, since his eyes had no trace of
On one side was Xiao Han, who was obviously not in a jolly mood, while on
the other was Murong Qian Jun, who was as angry as the former. After all,
someone had insulted them in front of the entire Tian Xiang City. He
lifted his leg to rush over, “You, you really wish to court death so
early in the morning!”
This youngster had been faced with several adversities of his own. His
pursuit of Princess Ling Meng had been largely unsuccessful. Moreover, he
had been relieved of his duties at the Imperial Palace after he had
spread that incorrect message. Hence, it was rather obvious that he was
also quite frustrated with his life, and was just looking for someone to
vent it all out on.
The old man Murong Feng Yu used one hand to cover his coughing mouth as
he pulled the youngster back with his other hand.
Murong Feng Yu’s movements were not at all quick, and seemed
exasperatingly slow. However, he outstretched his hand just in time to
block the ‘dashing’ Murong Qian Jun’s path.
Murong Feng Yu was quite experienced, and his eyes could make out that
Xiao Han and the others in his company were of extraordinary origins. He
had been able to decipher all that from just the curses this man had
thrown at his family. Moreover, seeing that the three of them were
clothed in pure white and had walked out from the Magnificent Jewel Hall,
he had managed to guess the opposite party’s origins.

“What did you say, you little bastard?” Xiao Han’s murderous mood
violently flashed on his face.
Xiao Han hailed from the Silver City, and was wearing the formal dress of
a member of the younger generation. Having any other color upon one’s
dressing was tabooed in the Silver Blizzard City. This youngster had
sinned by coloring his robes in a different color; something they would
only do when in mourning. Not just Xiao Han, but anyone from the Silver
Blizzard City would’ve been angered by this.
“Ke ke ke, this youngster is truly rude and rotten. He would like to
apologize to you, Mr.,” Murong Feng Yu’s vision seemed blurred as he
looked at Xiao Han. The thick skinned person appeared quite sincere,
while his smile resembled half a mums’ flower, whose petals had blown
away in the wind and rain. “Just by looking at Mr.’s dress, one can
see that he is actually an outstanding hero of the number one secret
powerhouse of this world – the Silver Blizzard City. How does one address
the unknown Mr.? And how is the Xiao Family’s Xiao Bu Yu?”
Xiao Han’s body shook a little as he became even more depressed.
This old man was too crafty. He had first compensated for his loss by
apologizing, and then he had brought Xiao Bu Yu into the discussion. In
this way, he had faintly pointed out that he knew the man while
reasserting his old age at the same time. This rendered the man from the
younger generation of the Xiao Family incapable of venting out his anger.
Xiao Bu Yu was world famous, therefore there was always a possibility
that the man could be lying. However, this was the Murong Family’s
second-in-command. Moreover, he had stated this in front of many people,
and so it was quite improbable that he woul be claiming a fake
Xiao Han looked towards the old man and somehow controlled his anger,
“The Xiao elder is indebted for your concern.”
“He he, we aren’t strangers. There is no need to speak in such a
polite manner,” Murong Feng Yu narrowed his eyes and lowered his
stance, “We were wrong in the matter which had just occurred, and my
Murong Family will confess properly to you. In return we hope that you
will show us kindness.”
Xiao Han groaned heavily, “There is no need for this!”
Murong Feng Yu relaxed a bit as he knew that the matter had now been
resolved. He opened his eyes and glanced at the Murong Qian Jun
ferociously. He then immediately looked at Murong Qian Jun, who was
staring at him blankly. Then, his gaze fell upon the beautiful young
maiden standing next to Xiao Han; she appeared as beautiful as a flower
which had managed to bloom even in the icebergs.

He couldn’t help but contemplate in his mind, [If Qian Jun can woo this
girl… won’t I then be able to pull my Family into a relationship with
the Silver Blizzard City? However, this matter… I must take proper time
to decide. This young lady is just a piece of swan-meat to my Murong
Family, no matter what position she holds in the Silver Blizzard City.]
At this point, the sound of several horse hooves could be heard in the
distance. This was soon followed by the arrival of many ranks of troops.
These were in fact the three princes’. However, riding in front of them
was the carriage of Princess Ling Meng.
There wasn’t enough time for Murong Feng Yu to properly exchange his
greetings. Therefore, he hastily greeted Xiao Han and then walked inside,
with the support of the people he had brought along.
At this moment the sound of another chariot was heard coming from a
different street. This carriage belonged to the prince equivalent, and
had arrived at the same time. These highly placed personalities had
arrived at the last minute, and all at the same time. Their arrival had
been skillfully timed.
Princess Ling Meng sat inside her carriage, with burdened thoughts
plaguing her mind.
She had not wanted to come today. It was neither her hobby, nor did she
like keeping up false appearances. However, her father, the Emperor, had
decided that he wanted to look around and had requested that she come
here immediately. Then he and Mr. Wen had disguised themselves, and had
followed her to this gathering.
Left with no other option, Princess Ling Meng had to comply. Yet she did
not know what her father was planning. He had kept ordering her carriage
to stop and then proceed for the entire journey, forcing the three
carriages carrying her elder brothers to do the same in the back. It had
almost seemed as if he was intentionally trying to manufacture trouble
for the three sons by forcing their carriages to collide on the broad
As a result, the Princess hadn’t found any peace over the course of the
