Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-254
“It’s Young Master Li.” Princess Ling Meng’s face was still pale,
while her mind was still somewhat in doubt, “The Young Master Li had
visited the palace earlier?”
“I had arrived at the palace yesterday to meet the Princess in
particular. However, the Princess was busy with something important, and
we were unable to meet. The Princess looks even beautiful than ever
today; she really wins the admiration of everyone.”
Li You Ran spoke softly and his flattery didn’t sound vulgar. His voice
was so clear and sophisticated that a person wouldn’t feel his to be
comments ill-willed… even if they didn’t exactly make one happy.
“Young Master Li talks very pleasant.” Princess Ling Meng had gotten
accustomed to flattery growing-up. Hence, she didn’t take his words
seriously. “Young Master Li must’ve had a reason to come looking for
Ling Meng? I request Young Master Li to be straightforward since the
Princess is exhausted and wishes to return to the Palace.”
“I heard that a mysterious Sky Xuan expert cast-out a throwing knife to
rescue the Princess when she was attacked by assassins. I’ve heard that
the Princess keeps that knife in her private collection.” Li You Ran
casually chuckled as he leisurely spoke about the matter as if it were
trivia, “Would You Ran be lucky enough to see that knife?”
“But I don’t understand why the Young Master Li would wish to take a
look at that knife… Please explicitly state the reason why you came to
the Palace, and why you wish to examine the knife!” Princess Ling Meng
immediately became conscious. [Why does this guy wish to see that knife?
What’s his intention?]
“The Princess may be unaware of this… however, You Ran had gone out a
few days ago, and was unexpectedly ambushed by an assassin. Things had
started to look bad, and You Ran thought that he might find himself in
hell. However, an azure light flashed and threw a knife at the assassin
in the nick of time. The assassin instantly retreated and You Ran’s
life was saved.” Li You Ran’s face reveled in sincere admiration and
gratitude. In fact, it seemed as if he was deeply fascinated.
“His favor has given me a new lease on life; and this has been engraved
into my mind ever since. You Ran has been making enquiries about this
person over the past few days since I wish to know more about him. It is
a shame that You Ran hasn’t been able to obtain any news of him. It was
only a couple of days ago that You Ran remembered that the Princess had
also been saved by a mysterious man once. Moreover, both men had used a
concealed knife from secrecy to rescue us. Therefore, it might be
possible that our benefactor is the same person?” Li You Ran sighed,
“He’s benevolent. He saved my life without asking for anything
return; he’s so noble. You Ran is fascinated with this person.”
“Oh,” Princess Ling Meng pursed her eyebrows. She could faintly sense
that someone was amiss. However, she couldn’t exactly tell what.
“That person left after that. However, he left a few small throwing
knifes lying on the ground; they glistened so beautifully…” Li You
Ran didn’t seem afraid to share his personal memories.

Li You Ran’s right hand went inside his bosom pocket. He fished for a
while, and brought out three small and delicate throwing knifes.
These throwing knifes were very different from the usual ones found
around the world; their blades were as delicate as a cicada’s wings.
The Princess could tell that these blades were manufactured by someone
with exquisite skills. She could tell that there wouldn’t be many
people in the entire Tian Xiang Empire who were capable of producing such
They were impeccably delicate. They were so adorable that one couldn’t
refrain from caressing them. However, the cold light flickering off their
surface resembled an infernal demon that was blinking in the dark of the
night sky. They were quite sharp. And although they weren’t big in
size, they were enough to send chills down one’s spine.
One could tell that these tender and exquisite throwing knifes were
weapons that could easily take anyone’s life.
“The shape of these knifes look very similar. In fact, they look
identical to the one I have.” Princess Ling Meng heaved a sigh of
relief. She then smiled and said, “But, the material used in these two
variants is very different even if they look similar. I can confirm that
there is a massive difference in the art used to craft these two blade
Li You Ran’s eyes hadn’t left the Princess’s beautiful face ever
since he had brought out that knife. However, he finally looked away and
smiled, “The make of the weapons is very similar? But how could I know
which one is better unless I get to compare the Princess’s blade with
“Young Master Li’s blades look cold and sharp enough to terrify
anyone. However, their texture is no match for mine. In fact, your blades
are no match for mine in terms of texture and make. However, your blades
are much tougher than mine. My blade is merely made of iron, while Young
Master Li’s are made of an excellent metal. Your weapons are indeed
worthy of being called divine weapons.” Princess Ling Meng
affectionately compared the weapons.
[These weapons must belong to the man who saved me!] The Princess had
been able to figure this out at one glance. [Only that unrivaled genius
is capable of making something so delicate and graceful. Only he is
capable of making something so beautiful, yet sharp enough to be used for
[These weapons are elegant, yet callous; bloody yet beautiful. If such is
the style of the weapon… then such must be the style of the owner…
How could ordinary people like that scoundrel Jun Mo Xie ever possess
such elegance and grace? Ordinary people would never be able to
commission such peerless weapons!]
Princess Ling Meng had fantasized about her savior ever since the day of
her attempted assassination. [If such is the elegance and divinity of his
weapons, then just how smart and unruffled must that man be?!]
[Perhaps he’s a man of peerless elegance and style!]
[It’s disgraceful to watch that Jun Mo Xie pretend as if he’s a man
of indomitable spirit! He’s such a shameless guy! Humph…]
A man of indomitable spirit… well, these words were indeed appropriate
to comment on the hitman’s personality.
“I really wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the blades
unless I see the one in the Princess’s collection, isn’t that right?
I really wish to know if we were saved by the same person or not?” Li
You Ran’s eyes seemed fervent with anxiety. It was almost as if he had
suddenly received information about his savior, and couldn’t contain
his excitement anymore.
“Heavens have taken pity on me. You Ran may finally be able to see
another weapon made by his savior. His grace cannot be expressed in
words. Hence, I wait to see it with my own eyes. May I look at it?” Li
You Ran’s righteous demeanor was indeed inspiring, “How will I be any
different from an animal if I can’t thank him for his kindness!”
“That is true. Though, my knife isn’t as good as Young Master Li’s.
However, I cherish it as a valuable item still. It never leaves me, and I
never show it to anyone. However, I will make an exception since Young
Master Li’s words are honest and pure.” Princess Ling Meng looked at
him appreciatively. [I didn’t think that he would be so cultured and
refined. However, he is truly an honest and a gifted man!] The Princess
muttered to herself as she drew out a small wrapped-package. She slowly
opened it and revealed a small and delicate knife. The cold light
reflecting off its surface had been mingled with the Princess’s sweet
and flagrant bodily scent.
“It’s exactly the same!” Li You Ran seemed very excited. He placed
the four blades in his palms. The blades indeed looked identical. One
could tell that the material used to cast them was different. But the
size and shape were exactly the same. Moreover, it was evident that these
blades had been cast out using the same method.
“Heavens indeed are watching! I’ve finally found you!” Li You Ran
seemed rather emotional. A trace of a cold expression flashed in his eyes
as he looked at Princess Ling Meng. His eyes begrudgingly revealed a
trace of frustration.
[Now I’m certain. That vile murderer and Princess Ling Meng’s savior
are related; they are probably the same person. No other person in this
world is capable of producing creating these weapons!]
Princess Ling Meng was only a tempted woman in Li You Ran’s eyes.
[If there needs to be a sacrifice… so be it.] Li You Ran sighed.
“It seems that Young Master Li and I have been brought together by our
benefactor’s grace,” Princess Ling Meng’s face reveled in a joyous
expression. In fact, she seemed a bit bashful. This unique and strange
expression only added another layer to the beauty of her tender face.
“Please look after yourself Princess.” Li You Ran’s soul was a
slight phased by the look in the Princess’s eyes, and her peerless
beauty for a split second. However, he immediately regained his
composure, and returned to his usual-cold mentality. “You Ran must
leave now. I will come to palace later in order to meet the Princess.”
Li You Ran bowed after he finished speaking, and then turned around to
leave. He didn’t even bother to recover the knives, and left them with
The murderer had been determined. Hence, the throwing knifes were
completely useless to him now. Even the fact that they were impeccable
weapons was of no value to him.
The Princess was a bit puzzled by the manner in which Li You Ran left.
[Young Master Li had himself said that he really cherish his savior’s
weapons. And he carried-on about how grateful he is to the man. However,
he simply left these blades with me after he thanked me… it seems as
Mr. Wen was still standing behind her. He whispered, “The words of
Young Master Li were strange and roundabout. Something seems amiss…
they were almost contradictory. Moreover, his eyes revealed a hint of
malice as he looked at the Princess even though there was no provocation.
He’s definitely thinking of something vile. And it seems that he may
have the Princess on his mind. I can’t think of anything else… other
than that. Your Majesty, we must put one or two guards on the Princess
for her safety’s sake.”
The Emperor narrowed his eyes, and whispered, “But I also wish to see
who this mysterious expert is.” The Emperor noticed that trace of fear
in Mr. Wen’s eyes, and laughed, “Don’t forget that Ling Meng has a
bodyguard by her side. And that bodyguard is a Sky Xuan expert; her
safety shouldn’t be of concern.”
“Ye Gu Han? What if he proves to be insufficient? Or isn’t always
there by her side?” Mr. Wen shook his head in disagreement; again and
again, “It’s been a while since the last assassination attempt on her
life. Wouldn’t it be pure idiocy to neglect taking Ye Gu Han into
account while planning her assassination again?”
