Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-275
“Even if you do have a helper — what do I have to fear?” Solitary
Eagle laughed mischievously. He snorted as his hands turned into bright
claws like those of a falcon, “Lei Wu Bei, your Xuan cultivation is
indeed slightly better than mine. And I admit this. However, winning a
battle doesn’t solely depend on the level of Xuan Qi. But it’s your
lucky day today because I’ll teach you an important lesson. This old
man has come up with an exceptional move. My move will make the Fifth
Great Master ‘eat dirt’! Ha Ha…”
Solitary Eagle’s body accelerated and became very erratic as he burst
into laughter. His body had suddenly taken the shape of a demonic and
ghostly bird. The entire realm under the firmaments seemed to be
screeching as his claws came together in a crisscross shape; this move
had given rise to a strong gale. His claws formed a large network of
airtight angle which could seemingly penetrate through any angle.
If this bird was ‘supposedly’ a Falcon — then it appeared as if the
Ghost of a Falcon had launched an attack.
The Nine Claws of the Ghostly Falcon!
“An excellent Falcon-Claw!” Lei Wu Bei suddenly shouted in praise. He
had never seen anything like this before. This move had attracted all his
attention. His brain even forgot to counter-attack.
Chi Chi Chi…
Lei Wu Bei had never seen such a fantastic martial arts move before. This
move had left him at a complete loss. Solitary Falcon’s claws inflicted
three cuts on Lei Wu Bei’s body. However, Lei Wu Bei didn’t get
frightened… even though he wasn’t prepared to face this attack. He
calmly retreated a few steps. Solitary Falcon howled as he gained the
upper hand. Then, he unleashed the second move.
The Supreme Master Solitary Falcon had only been able to learn the first
two steps of the ‘Nine Claws of the Ghostly Falcon’. His confidence
increased when the first step showed results. Hence, he decided to strike
with the second move while the iron was still hot.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!” the sounds of explosion emanated from Lei Wu
Bei’s body. He then let out a fierce roar and started to accumulate an
exceeding amount of Xuan Qi in his body; the Xuan Qi started to surge
like a tsunami. Lei Wu Bei was the Fifth Great Master. He couldn’t
allow himself to get pushed to such a state while fighting the Solitary
Falcon. He made no attempts to hold back as he unleashed his Cold-Blooded
There was a loud explosion and the two men stumbled back in recoil.
Lei Wu Bei was extremely shocked when he looked at his chest and saw five
bloody palm prints. Then, he looked up, “What is the name of this
remarkable Falcon-Claw technique? How many steps are there?”
Solitary Falcon’s face was flushed, and his chest was heaving rapidly.
He answered coldly, “How did my new technique taste, huh?! It’s
called the Nine Claws of the Ghostly Falcon! As the name implies — it
has nine steps. How did you like your lesson, huh?”
“Nine steps? So this wonderful move has nine steps? The Nine Claws of
the Ghostly Falcon?! It is worthy of the name ‘Ghostly Falcon’!”
Lei Wu Bei groaned in a depressed manner. He then added, “Solitary
Falcon, you’re different from before! This Old Man has no interest in
dawdling with you today. So I am dropping this matter for the time being.
Humph! But I’ll find you whenever I want!”
Solitary Falcon laughed heartily, “You can seek-out your senior
whenever you wish to taste his new and unique skills!”
“Solitary Falcon, we’re both called the ‘Eight Great Masters’. So
I shall give you a warning. Stay away from the Jun Family.” Lei Bu Wei
snorted, “The Jun Family has provoked two powerful entities. And now
they’ve added this Old Man to that list as well. It seems that it will
be necessary to take action against them! This Old Man doesn’t wish to
see you there when he annihilates their entire family! Otherwise I doubt
I will let you off either!”
“Annihilate the Jun Family? How?” Solitary Falcon snorted coldly,
“Why should the Solitary Falcon listen to this nonsense when he can
sort Lei Wu Bei out easily? And you wouldn’t be delaying this matter if
you could contend against my ‘Nine Claws of the Ghostly Falcon’!”
“You don’t know how to regret! You always act so recklessly!”
Lei Wu Bei snorted as he hung his head. Then, his body rose-up and
suddenly vanished. Lei Wu Bei had decided to act when he saw the
peculiarity of the situation. The Solitary Falcon’s ‘Nine Claws of
the Ghostly Falcon’ was a very strange and unpredictable move.
Moreover, each step was more powerful than the previous one. He felt
extremely threatened by this move. He didn’t have the confidence of
emerging victorious like he previously did. Moreover, the lowest ranked
Great Master was known for his speed. Therefore, it would’ve been very
hard for Lei Wu Bei to escape if the Solitary Falcon had a powerful aide
Therefore, Lei Wu Bei made a prompt decision and escaped.
The Solitary Falcon was silent for a while. He then sighed, “Well, that
was a close call!”
His opponent was ranked fifth amongst the Great Eight Masters for a
It would seem that both the fighters had done equally-well in this
battle. However, the Solitary Falcon was aware that he would’ve lost.
His ‘Nine Claws of the Ghostly Falcon’ had admittedly been very
fruitful. However, he would’ve undoubtedly been in a difficult
situation once the opponent increased his power output as the fight
progressed. He was already scraping the bottom of his trunk of tricks,
and had nearly exhausted them. However, his opponent had just begun to
unleash his Cold Blooded Finger. The second step of his unique ‘Nine
Claws of the Ghostly Falcon’ had dominated for a short while; nothing
more. Further, there had been a mysterious occurrence. The two men had
searched throughout the periphery, but hadn’t been able to find any
trace of this ‘spectator’s’ presence. The two men had lost the zeal
to fight after that incident.
They feared that a fisherman would catch both the fighting fish. And
the fisherman had a great advantage in this situation; this fact could
not be guarded against! In case the two men were to sustain serious
injuries during the battle… the third party could swoop-in and clinch
He could attack and kill both the Great Masters! How could he possibly
attempt something that crazy? Who was this extremely mysterious person?
Therefore, the two men thought of the same thing, and gave-up on the
[I’m afraid I would’ve been humiliated if I hadn’t practiced this
Ghostly Falcon’s Claw move. My recent comprehension of the second step
was especially pivotal… Lei Wu Bei is far stronger than me!]
[He is truly worthy of being called the most ‘cold-blooded’ master!]
[I am thankful to the man who made that noise; regardless of the
intentions he may have harbored!]
It seemed that he needed to learn more about the ‘Nine Claws of the
Ghostly Falcon’. It was imperative that he quickly master that move
without delay. The Solitary Falcon sighed, and then quickly left.
The Young Master Jun had departed before the two Great Masters.
Jun Mo Xie was bursting with anger at that moment.
Hit-man Jun was extremely mad at Lei Wu Bei.
[Correct! Our family indeed has incurred the grudges of two powerful
organizations! But it doesn’t mean that ‘anyone’ can come and step
on us as they like!]
His precise words had been — “The Jun Family has provoked two
powerful entities. And now they’ve added this Old Man to that list as
well. It seems that it will be necessary to take action against them!
This Old Man doesn’t wish to see you there when he annihilates their
entire family! Otherwise I doubt I will let you off either!” The mere
thought of Lei Wu Bei’s words had set Jun Mo Xie’s stomach on fire.
This was a clear threat for the Solitary Falcon to abandon the Jun
Family. [Damn it! I’ve somehow duped a Great Master to come and protect
my side! So what if you’re the Fifth Great Master! Bullsh*t! You’re
merely the Fifth Master, and yet you dare to oppose me? Even if you were
the Supreme Master, Yun Bei Chen… what could you do? I will kill you…
the first chance I get!]
[Why even wait for an opportunity? Let’s play right now! Let’s see
who beats whom!]
Jun Mo Xie was full of rage; extreme hatred had accumulated in his gut.
[Damn it Old Man! You had ten apprentices, and four of them are dead! It
seems that it’s not enough yet! I can’t sort you out for the time
being. Nor can I deal with your remaining Sky Xuan apprentices…
However, I can assassinate your crippled apprentices! You think that’s
going to be difficult for me? ]
[So your heart aches for your deceased disciples? Then this Young Master
will make your heart ache once again!]
Jun Mo Xie was recklessly angry.
The Hit-man Jun couldn’t help but recall the Jun Family’s ancestral
teaching — “Having balls does not make you a man! It is the
incomparably indomitable spirit which does!”
[Good! I’ll send them to their f*cking ancestors!] Jun Mo Xie cursed in
anger as he unleashed the Yin-Yang Escape at full speed. He darted back
towards the city like a wisp of smoke. His desired destination was the Li
[I don’t care if your bullsh*t ranks fifth or sixth in the list of the
Great Masters! I will make you cry today. I will tear you down and turn
you into a kite!] His speed increased exponentially because of his
He searched the Li Residence thoroughly, but couldn’t find anyone.
[Does no one live in the Li Family’s residence? This is very
alarming… What’s going on?]
Young Master Jun scratched his head upon finding the place deserted.
Finally, he stamped his foot in frustration and then infiltrated into the
ground of the locality. He carefully searched while he listened for a
giveaway sound to a hidden private chamber…
One lap of the residence… two laps… then finally…
A strange voice grabbed Jun Mo Xie’s attention…
“…the Xuan Beast crossbows are very important… everything has been
arranged carefully… but the good thing is…” several intermittent
words reached Jun Mo Xie’s ear. Jun Mo Xie suddenly became alert. He
slowly and carefully followed the sound to it source.
[I’ve been making a plan to capture the Xuan-Beast-Tendon Crossbows.
But surprisingly I’ve found other interested parties as well? This is
an unexpected gain!]
“These are Xuan Beast tendons and materials used in the frame of
crossbow’s body make an excellent combination. Their lethality will be
immense. Even an Earth Xuan expert will find it hard to evade its attack
if they’re caught off-guard! It is a rare and killer weapon! It is a
pity that we have to give up on these,” a person with a musical voice
“Why are we giving it up? Junior Disciple Li, we can’t let them go so
easily! This is a very rare opportunity for your Li Family! These weapons
are ready-made and good-to-go! These are of a special make. These
crossbows will make terrifying killing weapons! Will you let this
opportunity pass you by? Why would you do that?” another person spoke
in an anxious voice.
Jun Mo Xie could listen properly by now. This was the voice of the
Senior-most Disciple — Lei Jian Hong. He was eagerly trying to persuade
“Elder Brother Lei, how could I not see the importance of these
crossbows?” the voice that replied was sonorous, graceful and extremely
refined. One could imagine this person’s graceful personality by merely
listening to his voice.
He was audible to Jun Mo Xie as he continued, “Ten brother-disciple had
come to Tian Xiang City to help You Ran. But I’ve done nothing for
Master in return. Yet, I’ve only received Master’s aid and my
seniors’ affection. I’m truly ashamed! And four of my seniors have
left for the heavens because of my matters. And three of my seniors have
been crippled for life. This Little Brother is remorseful… what right
does this Little Brother have to exert himself in front of his seniors?
If some misfortune befalls the senior brothers again… wouldn’t Li You
Ran’s behavior be considered worse than a beast’s?”
“Junior Disciple Li, why are you talking like we are strangers? We are
brother disciples! Your matter is our matter!” Lei Jian Hong anxiously
replied. “And if these crossbows ended-up with the Second Prince…
heaven knows what that idiot would do? This could turn into a major
threat! The Jun Family won’t be the only one to get affected if the
Second Prince succeeds… your Li Family will also be affected… along
with the Emperor’s iron clad strength! How can you not see this? Junior
Disciple! This matter demands immediate action! You’ve always been so
firm. Why are you being so overly sensitive at such an important time?”
A slight modification of an Idiom. The actual Idiom is — sandpiper and
clam war together (and the fisherman catches both); alternately… two
quarreling neighbors lose out to a third party.
