Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-27
Chapter 027 Show Me Your True Abilities
“Third Uncle, if our medical warehouse does not have the herbs we need
then you will need to pay extra care to detail. We cannot only send one
person to go buy the necessary herbs. If possible, send a few of them,
each charged with buying one of the herbs. Most importantly, no one must
know the reason for buying these herbs! Even if others may not know of
what these combined herbs can do, we must still act to prevent any
“what if’s”! In fact, I must carefully check all the herbs even
after we have finished gathering them before processing it!”
Jun Xie continued.
“As of now, our Jun Family is in the decline, withering day by day. But
once Third Uncle’s body is restored, the situation will become totally
different! I believe that there are many who wished that Third Uncle
would stay paralyzed forever. And that is why this matter requires utmost
discretion! Once Third Uncle is able to stand, then you will become a
hidden trump card for our Jun Family! Third Uncle, I believe you
understand what I mean.”
“Correct!” Jun Wuyi looked at his nephew with a pleased feeling.
“Moxie, you have matured! Even if I lose the opportunity to stand
again, with you in our Jun Family, I believe that our family will not
fall!” Jun Wuyi had naturally understood Jun Xie’s words. However, to
hear those words coming out of his mouth, in addition to the amount of
thoughtfulness and long term planning within caused Jun Wuyi to feel
Jun Xie gave out a feeble laugh, turning his head to the other side. For
someone who had once been the number one assassin in the world to be
complimented as such: You have matured…
It somehow felt highly embarrassing!
Jun Xie felt himself unable to receive such a praise… In his mind, he
was thankful, thankful that the praise was “Moxie, you have matured”.
If the praise had been “Jun Xie, you have matured”… Should that
happen, his face was as good as lost.
If anyone from his past life came to know that someone had spoken to the
Evil Monarch in such a manner, they might just choke to death on the spot.

“Moxie, what do you think of our house guards’ training?” As he
listened to the distant roars or vigour and observing the robust bodies
drenched in sweat from training, Jun Wuyi felt a sense of restlessness
which he had not felt for a long time.
“Nothing more than showing style but no substance!” When Jun Xie who
was in the middle of his reverie heard the question, he answered without
hesitation. He did not even hide the tone of disdain in his voice.
“Style but no substance?” Jun Wuyi laughed as he shook his head.
“You claim that these training done by our house guards with the
cultivation of Seventh or Eighth level Xuan Qi are only style but no
substance? Moxie, these words of yours is truly something.”
“Can this even be considered training? What effects will these training
have?” Jun Xie retorted. “This kind of stuff can at best be
considered an exercise regimen. How can you call it training? No matter
how you look at it, they are simply a bunch of idle people coming
together to exercise their body shape. Actually, even the effect of
improving their body shape is not really there. I really do not see how
this training could help them in the battlefield. Or should I say, it
will not help them inflict any damage to their enemies should they meet
any! The way I see it, there is no difference between them and a wave of
disposable fodder! They are simply a group of normal people, with nothing
in them, wasting both time and effort with their worthless workouts, no
more, no less!
“Disposable fodder? Worthless workouts?” Jun Wuyi was unable to
restrain himself and shouted, his eyebrows raised. “Moxie, I know that
you do not like to practice martial arts; that is why you do not
understand the importance of basic training. But even so, you cannot
belittle these men! Ignorance is not a terrible thing, but to allow your
ignorance to insult these soldiers is unacceptable! Each and every one of
these men are elite war veterans of a hundred battles! It is only because
there are no more wars right now that they would become our Jun Family
bodyguards. Every single one of them has proven themselves to be a real
man! I will consider your words from earlier as a casual joke. But if you
dare to insult them again, then do not blame me for being unkind! These
kinds of words cannot be used even as a joke!”
When he finished his words, Jun Wuyi suddenly released an awe-inspiring
aura! Even though he has a calm disposition, Jun Xie was also startled.
His Third Uncle’s body may have been paralyzed, but his heart could not
be shattered. Once his body was restored, he would definitely become the
best pillar of support!
“A joke? Third Uncle may not understand what I meant, but everything I
said is the truth. At the same time, those words were not meant as a
joke!” Jun Xie stretched his hands, his face expressing innocence.
“I did not mean to say that they are useless, nor did I mean to insult
them. I believe that anyone that could return from the battlefield alive
is an iron-blooded man, worthy of respect. As for their training, anyone
could see that they are training assiduously with all their heart. But
just because one trains assiduously with all their heart, will one be
able to win the war? It is very normal for those who train assiduously
with all their heart to die the moment they step into the battlefield.
The reason I said they are simply doing worthless workouts is because
their way of training is wrong!”
“Their way of training is wrong?” Even though Jun Wuyi’s face
retained an expression of fury, he had begun considering those words.
Since a while ago, this nephew of his had been acting very different
compared to the past. Every word of his would contain certain meanings.
Could it be…
“Let us take these two sparring guards as an example. Third Uncle, from
your observation, do you think these two are playing a game or fighting
each other? Every attack is done with reservation, their faces filled
with smiles. Hehe, can this still be called training? Even basic training
cannot be this childish; they are simply having fun in pairs! Is this not
showing style but no substance?” Jun Xie pointed with his hands: “Let
us look there instead; those men are lifting logs to the point where they
are drenched in sweat before putting it down. It seems to be quite
difficult, right? But in fact, it is worth fart. They have not even
reached the limit of their bodies! These men possess a huge amount of
strength however; they stopped lifting once they start perspiring all
over even though they still have plenty of energy to spare. In other
words, even if they were to continue training like this for ten years,
their strength will not progress in any way. The only effect is that they
will be more proficient with certain actions. By doing so, their
slumbering potential becomes wasted, is this not a worthless workout?”

“For these people, they can survive in the battlefield thanks to their
good luck! As for being labelled a warrior or a hero, that is something
of a happy accident!” Jun Xie heartlessly looked at those men. “Men
of this level can at best only be assigned to watch over the house. They
cannot be entrusted with bigger forms of responsibility! Third Uncle,
after listening to all these, do you still think I am insulting them?”
Jun Xie’s words can only be described as terribly blunt, however, Jun
Wuyi did not became angry. Instead, he became submerged in his thoughts.
Jun Xie gave out several “hey”s in laughter, “If Grandpa had really
thought of depending on these people to preserve the Jun Family, then I
fear that this family would already have been destroyed hundreds and
thousands of times. As such, I conclude that Grandpa must have another
group of elites. These elites are the true pillars of strength of the Jun
Family! Even though I have never seen them nor did I obtain any
confirmation, I am confident that they exist! As for these people, they
are here simply to serve as a front. Third Uncle, you are not possibly
trying to tell me that you actually have that high of an evaluation
towards these men who can only serve as a front, right?”
At this moment, Jun Wuyi was looking at Jun Xie with a strange
expression. After a long time, he said: “If these men’s training were
to be handed over to you, what can I expect? What kind of unbelievable
strength can they obtain if you were to train them?”
“Hand over their training to me? I do not have that kind of free
time!” Jun Xie curled his lips: “Smelling their sweaty odour every
day, I will end up smelling them to death. The smell of soldiers does not
equate the smell of sweat! The military spirit is also neither a product
of sweat nor shouts, it is the product of killing in the battlefield!”
“Bring me over there,” Jun Wuyi gave a “heng”, his chiselled face
looking contemplative but firm. “Jun Moxie, show me your true
