Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-315
The day after the army had set off… or to be more precise… on the
midnight of the day the army had set off — the real client of the Blood
Sword Hall, the Emperor of the Tian Xiang Empire — finally received the
news he had been waiting for. The Zhao Family’s men who had had crossed
into the Capital’s region had been wiped out along with the troops they
had hired from the Southern Trade Union. The Second Prince’s Devine
Storm Guard had suffered the same fate.
The Emperor didn’t find this news-report shocking; in fact, it was
expected. Otherwise, wouldn’t things have failed to live up to his
arrangements? However, the news-report wasn’t limited to this
information. This was because the annihilation hadn’t been limited to
the aforementioned deaths. The members of the Blood Sword Hall who had
taken part in the operation had also died a violent death.
The three Sky Xuan experts, fifteen Earth Xuan assassins, and forty Jade
Xuan assassins — all had been eliminated. This news was shocking; in
fact, it was extremely shocking.
One would’ve needed immense fighting-strength in order to destroy such
a force. And, this was different from an ordinary defeat… perhaps even
an ‘attack and a rout’ situation. Rather, it was the complete
destruction of an entire military group; not a single person had been
able to escape.
In addition, the main reason for these events had disappeared without a
trace. That is… the meticulously manufactured ultra-killing weapons
made using the Xuan Beasts’ tendons and highly tempered steel — which
several powers had been vying and hoping for — had also disappeared
without a trace.
The Emperor had ransacked his table, and had his cup had fallen down. The
spirit of his gloomy face didn’t revive for many days to come. The
crossbows and the strength of the Blood Sword Hall had held great
importance for the Emperor. He had never expected that his flawless
arrangements would go awry instead of capturing those crossbows. In fact,
he hadn’t merely lost-out on the crossbows. He had also lost the elite
troops that constituted nearly half of the covert martial strength under
his command to this unfathomable mystery.
The fact that made him even angrier was that this event had left no clues
behind. So, he couldn’t determine who had been behind this incident. So
much so, that even the tiniest clues hadn’t been left behind. How
wouldn’t the Tian Xiang Empire’s Emperor be gloomy? How could he not
be angry? This gloom and anger resulted in a cloud of worry and a fog of
misery in the Imperial Palace. Everyone trembled with fear and treaded
with caution since no one wanted to anger the ‘unhappy’ Emperor.
As for the effect of the news of this event on the Second Prince… he
fainted when he heard this news. This isn’t an exaggeration… he had
genuinely fainted on the spot.
That was understandable. After all, he had suffered the greatest damage
amongst all the participants. He had expended the highest amount of
resources from the start to the finish. In fact, he couldn’t afford the
final outcome of it. The Second Prince had paid for the raw materials
that were required for the manufacturing. In fact, he had paid a very
high price for them. Perhaps, one should say that he had paid an
astronomically high price. Then, he had paid double for the manufacturing
cost. The Prince had also engaged a lot of manpower for the transport
arrangements. And now, he had suffered a dead loss. Moreover, his Devine
Storm Guard had also been annihilated in its entirety; they were the
Second Prince’s most elite troops!
One could say that he had gone bankrupt while paying for another’s
wedding dress. The fact that was even more exasperating was that he
didn’t know who that ‘other person’ was… The Second Prince
probably wouldn’t have been able to figure out a way of responding to
this situation if he hadn’t already fainted in the first place…
Another person was similarly gloomy. It was Li You Ran. The Young Master
Li hadn’t suffered the loss of a fortune like the Second Prince. But,
he had still paid a considerable amount. One could say that he had lost
his hard earned savings…
He had sent half of the most elite of his family’s secretly trained
warriors for this task. And, they had been completely annihilated.
Moreover, one of his senior brother-disciples was killed, and turned to
However, the fact that made him even more depressed was that — he
didn’t know whom to retaliate against. [Should I look for the Blood
Sword Hall? Should I find that assassin and take revenge?] Wouldn’t the
Great Cold-Blooded Master Lei Wu Bei go mad if he didn’t take revenge?
Moreover, his two remaining senior disciples had been so shaken that they
hadn’t even brought their deceased brother-disciple’s body back. In
fact, he reckoned that his senior brother-disciple and his senior
sister-disciple wouldn’t stay with him for long either.
Nine senior brother-disciples and one senior sister-disciple had come to
Tian Xiang City a fortnight ago in order to help him with his plans.
However, eight had already died by now. And, the remaining two had
transformed into thoroughly frightened creatures.
The Li Family’s Young Master — Li You Ran — resented this situation
to no end.
Something else had also added to the fire. He had sent some of his
powerful seniors to formally gain control over Tian Xiang City’s
underworld a few nights ago. However, they had unexpectedly been attacked
the same night, and had been forced to retreat. And, the Jin Yang gang
had engulfed the entire underworld as a result.
The Jin Yang gang had already become the biggest group in Tian Xiang’s
underworld. In fact, they didn’t have any competitors.
[Senior Brother Lei Jian Hong and Senior Sister Fang Piao Hong fought the
enemies tonight. These two Sky Xuan experts battled the counterparts.
Their enemies’ strength was indeed greater than my seniors, but these
two senior-disciples have failed in the true sense. They become
flustered, and lost all intention to fight-back. A Sky Xuan expert must
at least be able to maintain their composure and status!] Li You Ran was
especially angry at that point. And, the two seniors had also realized
their problem. They were ashamed of letting their junior down, and asked
him to let them leave. They wished to find Master Lei Wu Bei in order to
discuss the countermeasures with him.
Li You Ran had readily agreed. He had naturally provided them with a
great amount of money for their travels. He had politely seen them off to
their journey as well. However, muttered curses had arisen from the
usually calm Young Master Li You Ran’s mouth after the two left. He had
suddenly raised his leg, and had smashed his family’s door with a
He had already reached Jade Xuan realm. Therefore, he had become quite
powerful. His ferocious kick had thoroughly destroyed the door.
It was a proper and incisive kick.
“Jin Yan Gang…? You think that I don’t know that you’re Jun Mo
Xie’s people?” Li You Ran’s fists clenched. Then, his expression had
gradually calmed down, and he had slowly loosened his fists. Suddenly, a
gentle smile had stretched across his face. “Jun Mo Xie has left the
Capital now. Do you think that I won’t be able to deal with you now? Do
you think that I won’t be able to handle you now? I have many ricks. It
would be hard to beat you head-on, but round-about ways can also achieve
the same goal!”
The Young Master Jun’s blood had boiled during the ceremony of vows
that had taken place before they had set out to war. This was the first
time that he had felt like a hot-blooded heroic son of a military family.
However, Jun Mo Xie had found himself unable to bear the military’s
customs after merely half-a-day’s journey from the Capital. It was too
much for him to take!
[That’s forbidden! That won’t do either!] Jun Mo Xie had later
discovered walking without consent, and even laughing or speaking
out-of-turn was improper in his third Uncle’s eyes.
Jun Wu Yi had stayed away from the military for more than ten years. But,
this barbaric control of the army had brought victories in the past. He
seemingly watched over those who weren’t pleasing to his eyes with a
cold and scowling face, and acted against them with swift and decisive
decisions. He would especially nitpick with the group of debauchees —
headed by his own nephew — even more harshly for no reason since they
weren’t pleasing to look at. So, if he saw one of them… he would
scold that ‘one’ youngster. If he saw two of them… he would scold
Therefore, it was fair and reasonable that Jun Mo Xie, Murong Qian Jun,
Meng Hai Zhou, Meng Fei, Li Zhen, Li Feng, etc… these Young Masters of
the various families were left to whine to no end.
Jun Mo Xie knew that his uncle would need strict authority over the
military to hold the battle formations. For that, his uncle needed to
establish his prestige. He would need to set-up the image of harsh and
firm military discipline since that would ensure strict obedience when
they marched into a battle. Could they possibly go to war if indiscipline
was rife in the Army? That would be like marching to their death!
Therefore, Jun Wu Yi needed several ‘out of luck’ and ‘damnable’
scapegoats in order to establish his prestige.
It was a classic case of ‘killing one to warn the many’. He would set
an example as a warning to others in order to implement military
However, Jun Mo Xie hadn’t expected that he would be the first ‘out
of luck’ scapegoat.
This incident would sound rather melodramatic… Jun Mo Xie had been
riding his horse, and had been fighting an urge to urinate for
half-the-afternoon. He took a look around. They had left the city’s
walls long ago. There were woods to his left, and farms to his right;
some hamlets could be seen a little distance ahead. [The troops are
advancing forward without a break. So, how do I deal with this?] This was
an extremely difficult situation for the Young Master Jun. So, he swung
his leg down his horse. Then, he stealthily slipped-away to some nearby
trees. He untied his trousers, and let-out a single stream without any
There were several trees before his eyes. The magnificent army was
marching forward behind him; very close behind him. In fact, they were so
close to the trees that the men at the extreme opposite side of this
procession of troops could stretch their hand, and fish-out a bird’s
Therefore, the Young Master Jun let out his urinary stream in a highly
spirited and invigoratingly straight line.
He had burst-out to his heart’s content. Then, he shook ‘it’
quickly after he was finished. He was about to pull-up his trousers. But,
he suddenly realized that two hands had been placed on his shoulders.
“You’ve separated from the formation without permission. You’ve
ignored the army’s disciple, and you’ve disrupted the public morals
by urinating in front of everyone! Young General, we request that you
come with us,” Two Military Police personnel arrived like heavenly
troops, and caught Jun Mo Xie red-handed.
“What… doesn’t that sound unreasonable, ah? I obviously have my back
to everyone. So, how can you say that I was urinating in front of them?”
Jun Mo Xie contended on strong grounds. However, the two ‘impartial’
law officials grabbed him, and took him with them. The pitiful Young
Master Jun didn’t even get time to pull-up his trousers! His
‘thing’ was somewhat discernable to prying eyes. He was seized, and
brought under the graceful banner of Jun Wu Yi.
The results were good, and Jun Wu Yi — the commander from the Jun
family — put on a show in front of his headquarters. He ceremoniously
punished Jun Mo Xie at the official gates with the serious penalty of
twenty lashings with truncheons.
If the punishment was too heavy for this crime… then no one called it
‘heavy’. And, if it was lenient… then no one called it that either.
No one asked mercy for Jun Mo Xie. But, that was only natural. Everyone
knew that Commander Jun had found an excuse to put on a display.
Moreover, the Young Master Jun didn’t have friendly relations with
Most real men don’t cry in such situations. However, Jun Mo Xie nearly
wept. He looked up and clenched his teeth as he said, “Third Uncle, you
are ‘using your authority to bring about order’. It is this little
nephew’s bad luck that he had erred a little… but, this is the first
“Silence! We’re general and subordinate in the army camp. I’m not
your Third Uncle. And, you’re not my nephew. Deputy General, you’ve
spoken rudely, and you’ve disrupted the army’s discipline. Add ten
more hits to his penalty!” Third Master Jun’ expression was serious.
Young Master Jun clearly understood that he dare not utter another word.
He was sure that he would be hit many more times if he spoke-up again.
The truncheon crackled thirty times, and everyone kept quiet. Many
debauchees were present there to witness; old and young. They reveled in
his misfortune, but they didn’t speak a word. That itself was a desired
However, Commander Jun was aware of his nephews’ skills. It would’ve
seemed that Jun Mo Xie had suffered serious injuries when one looked at
his posterior turning all red-and-blue. However, it wasn’t a big deal
in reality. In fact, it wouldn’t have harmed him much even if he had
been struck three hundred times; let alone thirty times. However, he had
just caught his nephew red-handed after the military operations had
already started. And so, he hit upon an idea. [This kid erred. He’s
extremely undisciplined. This isn’t a good thing.] The Jun Family was a
family of generals at the end of the day. So, he had decided to use that
opportunity to carefully temper his nephews’ temperament. This would be
important in laying out a foundation in case he had to lead troops into
battle in the future.
As a matter of fact… this idea’s origin could be barely credited to
Jun Wu Yi. Grandpa Jun had exhorted him to ferociously train Jun Mo Xie
before they had departed for war. In other words, he had been given this
license by Grandpa Jun himself. So, the Third Master Jun had prepared
himself to ill-treat his nephew in an unrestrained manner.
However, it was still a bit too much for the youngster’s first act of
Jun Mo Xie covered his buttocks after he had received that lashing of
thirty truncheons, and walked out of the Commander’s tent with his
teeth gnashed. Then, he started to look around for someone he didn’t
“Ah! Is that the all-powerful Jun Family’s Third Young Master? What’s
with that expression? Is this the first time the Commander has educated
you? He he he… Third Young Master Jun, you look very handsome when you
cover your butts with your hands! This Young Master really admires you!”
Jun Mo Xie had been his rival-in-love over Princess Ling Meng in the days
gone by. So, the Murong Family’s Young Master — Murong Qian Jun —
peculiarly shook his shoulders in an exaggerated manner. In fact, it
seemed that he was deliberately making a crackling sound of laughter.
Meng Hai Zhou and others were present in the vicinity as well. They
roared with laughter at this.
Jun Mo Xie didn’t say a thing. He simply walked-over and stationed
himself in front of Murong Qian Jun. Then, he suddenly snatched a pike
from a soldier who stood beside him. He then used it as a truncheon, and
rained-down attacks on the opposite party. He drilled-in an attack with
that pike-truncheon at a very fast speed.
[This Young Master had found no place to vent his belly full of anger.
Yet, you still dared to provoke me? Are trying to court your bad luck?]
[This is what they call ‘intolerable’!]
[This Young Master Jun – at the very least — won’t tolerate it!]
What else could Murong Qian Jun expect? The other party had erred, and
had broken the army’s discipline. And then, the former had still tried
to ‘take his case’ in front of their peers. However, he had been
caught off-guard by the Young Master Jun’s retaliation.
He wouldn’t have been able to avoid it even if he had been prepared for
it. He was struck by the truncheon. His eyes instantly filled with a
golden light, and stars started to glitter in front of them.
The Murong family’s skulls were rather perfect in their bone-structure.
The pike hit him dead in the center, and broke off. Murong Qian Jun’s
skull was perfect, but his forehead was even superior in quality. A red
lump — the size of a finger, and as thick as an egg — rose-up right
in the center of his forehead at a visibly astonishing speed. In fact, it
even made a ‘whooshing’ sound. It erected straight-up like a
“Oh? Isn’t this the graceful and elegant Young Master Murong? Is that a
pen*s on his head? Don’t tell me that this is his innate talent? Is it
possible that his ‘thing’ isn’t inside his pants, but on his
forehead instead? It’s a pity… such a pity that there’s only one
egg to it. But, it has a very graceful shape. In fact, it is unrivalled
all throughout the land. It is genuinely unprecedented. I truly admire
it!” Jun Mo Xie burst out laughing as he made a gesture with his head.
His gesture couldn’t be considered as ‘lame’ in front of that shape
on Murong Qian Jun’s head. Then, he threw away the now-half-pike, and
left with long strides.
He had exported his Qi in this strike. So, that the pike hit Murong Qian
Jun with just the precise amount of strength, and his skin didn’t
break. However, this caused his forehead to swell to its maximum extent,
and created an ‘amazing and astonishing’ effect.
Everyone who heard that remark turned to look — only to find a lump on
Murong Qian Jun’s forehead. It was erect, and amazingly resembled a
pen*s. It looked like an especially rare one since it somewhat lacked in
length. But, it was of perfect thickness, and had a remarkable likeness
in all other respects. It had been imitated to perfection, and was very
