Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-327
The sound of orderly marching resounded. The echoes of their vigorous
rhythm shook the earth. The clouds of dust soared into the sky. These
factors could only signify the arrival of elite troops. A mushroom-like
cloud of dust would’ve arisen due to all the confusion if it were an
ordinary force. It was only because of the orderly march of properly
organized troops that there was no confusion and the dust rose in the air
the way it did.
That majestic sound of the army’s march gave rise to a subtle yet
earth-shattering feeling. The sound of this army’s march was so
formidable that it seemed as if no force in the world could stop it from
“Jun Wu Yi is genuinely worthy of the Jun Family’s name. He’s running
a very tight force. One has no choice but to admire his work after
looking at it,” Dongfang Wen Qing was standing on top of a tree. He
looked far into the distance and sighed.
“That youngster is quite remarkable.” Dongfang Wen Jian and Dongfang Wen
Dao stood beside him. They couldn’t restrain their sighs either.
One could see several cavalry-units ahead of Jun Wu Yi if they’d look
into the distance. These units surged ahead like a powerful current. Even
the horses seemed to raise and set their hooves in unison. No matter what
side one would look at this formation from… whether it was at the
front, or the back or the sides… everything progressed in a straight
and uniform line. Their adjustment to uniformity looked similar to a
However, this was just a product of firm discipline; nothing more.
However, the face of each soldier in that army was filled with pride.
This is what an army is characterized by. An army unit that lacked a
spirit of internal cooperation would never have faces as proud as the
ones in this.
Even the Young Master Jun jumped at the sight of such a grand and
One must know that only the troops under Jun Wu Yi’s direct control had
been properly disciplined at the time of Jun Mo Xie’s departure from
the main force. However, private troops from various families had also
joined the ranks of this army. These private troops had been assigned as
‘guards’ for the many Young Masters who had enlisted in the army.
However, these private troops weren’t disciplined like the rest of the
soldiers. In fact, they were like untamed horses. So, it was a wonder
that they had been disciplined and brought in-line within a month’s
[It seems that Third Uncle has great skills in supervising troops.]
The Young Master Jun wasn’t familiar with the military affairs in the
least. But, he knew that this wasn’t very simple. So, the Young Master
Jun was aware that he would’ve had a lot of trouble on his hands if his
place had been exchanged with his uncle’s.
Jun Mo Xie led the 250 of his men to make a welcome party. However, he
was greeted by a cold face. Jun Mo Xie was a wild and untamable beast.
But, he smiled at this cold face because it belonged to his Third Uncle
— Jun Wu Yi.
Jun Wu Yi looked at his nephew with a solemn expression on the surface.
However, his heart didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. [Has any
Vanguard unit ever acted in this manner? Letting out your men wasn’t
very different from letting out sheep in the forest. They basically
disappeared without a trace. And, no news of your advancements was
relayed to us at the back. I’ve never heard of a Vanguard unit to
operate in this manner before. In fact, this is unprecedented…]
The Young Master Jun had actually done a good job in clearing the path
ahead. The army hadn’t faced any inconvenience or latent problems. The
Young Master Jun’s approach may have been improper and insensible, but
he had completed his task nonetheless. Therefore, the army hadn’t faced
even the slightest of problems. Jun Wu Yi was extremely satisfied with
this point. Even the upper echelons of the command were quite satisfied
with this since they were informed of his efforts; well… at least no
one tried to nit-pick the problems.
The only problem was that he hadn’t stayed in contact with the main
However, what about those who didn’t know of his efforts? They had
readily believed that the Jun Family’s brat had no sense of
responsibility. And, they had credited Commander Jun for the fact that
they hadn’t encountered any trouble throughout their journey. Even the
Old Master Jun — who had stayed back in the Tian Xiang City — had
somehow come to receive some of this credit.
However, the problem that seemed more serious was the fact that the count
of people who were unaware of the Young Master Jun’s efforts was
massive in number. To quote an example… if the army had only a hundred
men… ninety-nine of them would say that it was the Third Master Jun’s
or the Old Master Jun’s handiwork.
Therefore, this naturally gave rise to the issue of convincing the
majority of the population. The Young Master Jun’s actions had seemed
undisciplined on the face of it. So, how could the military’s order be
maintained unless some punishment was meted out to him?
Therefore, Commander Jun was left with no choice but to rain down a
tongue-lashing on Jun Mo Xie. The Young Master played his part well —
he raised his eyebrows in shame, and looked down. He acted like a
‘yes-man’ in a bewildered manner. The Young Master pretended that his
Third Uncle was praising his efforts. In any case, Jun Mo Xie didn’t
listen to his uncle lecture properly, and had nearly fallen asleep by the
time it ended.
The Third Master Jun was busy venting his anger on his nephew when he
sensed the hint the latter’s droopy eyes were giving off. So, Commander
Jun had no choice but to hastily explain the camp’s arrangements to the
troops in a brief sentence. He then quickly ordered the troops to retire.
“Humph! Commander Jun has great authority and murderous aura! Your
authority has increased many folds since I saw you ten years ago. You
sent your nephew to lead the vanguard; and then, you actually gave him a
tongue-lashing even though he completed the task very satisfactorily.
But, I didn’t hear a single word of encouragement from your mouth.
That’s truly a ruthless method of self-discipline. You’re genuinely
an iron-blooded man!” a mockery-riddled eccentric voice echoed from
A cold light flashed in Jun Wu Yi’s eyes as his sword-like eyebrows
shot up, “Who is it? Come out!”
“We’re coming out, we’re coming out; don’t tell me that the
Commander is afraid?” there was a ‘brushing’ sound as three people
came out of their tents.
“Elder Brother Dongfang?” Jun Wu Yi exclaimed in pleasant surprise before
he looked further, “Second Brother Dongfang… and Third Brother! It’s
really you!” Jun Wu Yi’s eyes filled with an immensely guilty look
immediately-after that pleasant surprise. His countenance also became
“Humph! Of course it’s us! You’re rushing towards Tian Fa so quickly,
Jun Wu Yi. Do you wish to die? Are you tired of your life?” the words
that came out of Dongfang Wen Qing’s mouth sounded harsh and taunting,
but his expression wasn’t very grave. A person would have no problems
in discerning a sliver of care in that speech if they used their
The three brothers’ resentment towards the Jun Family didn’t run that
deep. They had only vented their anger; nothing more. Moreover, their
hearts were at ease since they had seen that the rumored ‘debauchee
nephew’ of theirs was actually a promising young man. So, they felt
even less resentment towards the Juns.
Ten years had passed since that tragedy. And, Jun Wu Yi was surely the
source of it all… but, wasn’t he its victim as well? In fact, he was
the biggest victim! He had lived the life of a cripple for ten years.
And, he had lived a life of remorse for ten years. That one man was
forced to bear the blame of the misery of multitudes. Worse of all… Jun
Wu Yi wasn’t even aware of the situation in the beginning. And, things
had already gotten out of hand by the time Jun Wu Yi came to know of Han
Yan Yao’s identity…
They looked at Jun Wu Yi, and realized that these guilt-ridden ten years
had exhausted him completely. They were suddenly overcome with guilt and
shame since they realized that Jun Wu Yi had led the saddest and most
difficult life over the last ten years.
They felt deeply for their sister. But, they had already given vent to
their rage ten years ago by bringing about wide-spread slaughter. A long
time had passed since then, and this time had long since worn-away their
anger. It wasn’t engraved in their hearts in the same manner that it
once used to be…
However, Jun Wu Yi was different. That entire affair had happened because
of him. And, that fact would always remain even if hadn’t intended for
it to happen…
Jun Wu Yi hadn’t intended it, but he was still guilty of it. He may not
have intended for it to happen, but it had become the heaviest burden of
Commander Jun had felt like his heart was being devoured by small ants
every night; such had been his suffering for the past ten years. [We can
still get drunk and use our bodies to get into crazy fights to drive away
the pain in our hearts when it gets unbearable. But, Jun Wu Yi’s legs
had remained disabled for so many years. So, he had no choice but to
endure the pain in silence…]
The four men looked at each other, and felt a very strange feeling. It
seemed as if they had been transported ten years into the past. However,
they found it difficult to breathe since those memories had started to
play on their minds.
The rim of Jun Wu Yi’s eyes slowly turned red and moist. He then opened
his arms and smiled, “I have missed you over these years, Elder Brother
Dongfang! We haven’t met for the past ten years, two months and seven
He then looked at the color sky to figure out the time, and then spoke
gloomily, “And two hours… I gave you the news of the Elder Brother’s
death on that day about two hours ago from now…”
Jun Wu Yi’s eyes suddenly became blood red.
The four men at his side were heavily shaken.
He had been accurate to the very day and hour!
[Ten years, two months, seven days and two hours! Jun Wu Yi has actually
recorded the time in such an accurate manner! What is the meaning of
This showed that Jun Wu Yi hadn’t forgotten that deep-running
blood-feud; not even for a single day. But, he could only endure. He
clearly knew who the enemy was. However, he had no choice but to endure.
Moreover, he had been crippled, and had to suffer the pain of being
separated from his love.
Dongfang Wen Qing and the other two realized the plight of the life Jun
Wu Yi had been leading for those ten years.
This short sentence was enough to determine all this…
“You’ve suffered too much, Third Younger Brother.” Dongfang Wen Qing
took a step forward, and tightly embraced Jun Wu Yi. The two men embraced
in silence. Jun Wu Yi closed his eyes since he was on the verge of
welling up. However, he was already crying ardent tears in his heart. His
facial muscles twitched, and his jaw was clenched; but, he didn’t make
[These words which I had longed for… words of understanding and care
from the Dongfang Family… have come after ten years! Ten long years!
Even if it’s a little late…even if it’s a little late… they’ve
finally come! Heavens know how many times I have fallen apart in all
these years… How many times!]
Jun Wu Yi’s face was expressionless, but a bitter pain battered his
heart like a flooding river.
Dongfang Wen Jian and Wen Dao thought about Jun Wu Yi’s ten years’
worth of suffering. They then saw this emotional scene. They were unable
to stop their eyes from becoming red at this sight; the tip of their
noses became sour, and they arrived on the verge of shedding tears.
However, the only thing they could do was to exert the entirety of their
strength to cough a little since they were afraid that they would gush
fountains and cry themselves horse if they didn’t restrain themselves.
They had managed those coughs with extreme difficulty in order to cover
up. However, even these coughs had a tenor tremble to them.
[I don’t know how Jun Wu Yi managed for ten years! I would’ve already
committed suicide in order to apologize for my mistakes if I were in his
place. Yet, he continued to persist through all the torment for ten
Everyone’s mood returned to normal after a good while.
“Do I not know that going to Tian Fa is perilous? Moreover, many other
bitter enemies of our family have gathered there besides the terrible
Xuan Beasts! I request that you three elders ensure that Mo Xie returns
safely to Tian Xiang City if I’m unable to escape with my life! I
sincerely request you!” Jun Wu Yi changed the subject after he returned
to normal, and put forth this urgent request.
