Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-328
“What is this nonsense?! Mo Xie is our nephew! We obviously won’t let
him get hurt! And, you’re also our younger brother! So, you can’t get
hurt either!” Dongfang Wen Jian opened his eyes wide and replied.
“It’s not that I want ‘this’. However, I had received intelligence
while I was on the road. We don’t know the reason for the Xuan
Beast’s uprising yet. But, we know that the scale of their uprising is
extremely huge. In fact, it has the potential to cause unimaginable
damage! It is reported that Tian Fa’s kings are extremely enraged, and
have ordered all the level-four-plus Xuan Beasts to participate in this
Jun Wu Yi smiled and looked up at Dongfang Wen Qing, “Your Dongfang
Family had made a baffling vow. It seems that half of that oath has
already been fulfilled!”
“The Tian Fa beasts have come out. But, couldn’t people interpret our
oath in a different manner, and say that it would only be fulfilled when
the Tian Fa beasts are dead? So, why would you say that half of our oath
is already fulfilled?” Dongfang Wen Qing was quite happy a moment ago,
but he suddenly asked in a doubtful manner.
“That’s because it has been confirmed that this uprising has been
instigated by the Third and the Fourth Xuan Beast Kings. The mysterious
and strongest Xuan Beast King has yet to participate!” Jun Wu Yi took a
deep breath before he continued, “This is the latest information I’ve
received. However, I believe that many strong Xuan experts will arrive at
Tian Fa because of the war. And then, the strongest Xuan Beast King would
have to arrive in order to support the other Xuan Beast Kings. I’m
convinced of this. Therefore, there’s only one thing remaining as far
as the Dongfang Family’s oath is concerned. And, that is — the
collapse of that snow covered peak…”
“So, that’s how it is.”
Jun Mo Xie’s mind was set into motion — [I don’t know how that
mountain peak looks… But, I will go and have a look when I have free
“Moreover, the Shen Ci Empire and the Yu Tang Empire have also sent
armies to assist after they looked at the increase in the scale of the
conflict. In fact, even the King of the Prairie has sent ten thousand
elite cavalry from his side. This is the reliable intelligence that
I’ve gathered so far. I also infer that the Three Empires will be a
hindrance to each other during the course of this war since they harbor
mutual sentiments of deep-seeded hatred. I’ve also come to know that
the Xiao Family’s second elder — Xiao Bu Yu — will be leading the
Silver Blizzard City’s troops. Moreover, these troops will mostly
consist of Xiao Family’s members. Our Jun Family has a deep and
long-standing feud with the Xiao Family. Also, Xiao Han is my arch enemy,
and we have irreconcilable hatred between us. Hence, I’m sure that
something or the other will happen!
“In addition, our Jun Family and the Xue Hun Manor also have ill feelings
towards each other. So, we must guard against that as well!” Jun Wu Yi
spoke everything in one breath. Then, he spat and spoke, “The situation
is grim. It’s very grim. It’s bad enough to make me dispirited.”
“And, then there’s the Eight Great Masters… the greatest Master Yun
Bie Chen hasn’t arrived. However, the third Great Master, Han Feng
Xue… the Heavenly Great master Mo Wen Tian… The Great Blue Master,
Meng Hong Chen have already arrived,” Jun Wu Yi spoke in a heavy tone.
But, his eyes were burning with an incomparably intense flame.
Jun Wu Yi was looking forward to witnessing the elegant bearings of those
Great Masters from a close range.
“Perhaps there’s one person you may not be aware of…” Dongfang Wen
Qing spoke up, “The one who was robbed of his place by the Eighth Great
Master Solitary Falcon — Feng Juan Yun. He’s also on the road. And,
perhaps… may have already arrived there.”
“Feng Juan Yun…” Jun Mo Xie was silently siting on the side and
slightly raised his eyebrows at that name. [This shouldn’t have made a
breakthrough and become powerful enough to defeat the Solitary Falcon,
“Many other powerful families — aside from the Silver Blizzard City and
the Xue Hun Manor — have also sent their people. The most famous
amongst them are — the Baili Family, Duanmu Family, Beigong Family, the
Wenren Family, Sikong Family, and Zuoqiu Family, the Diwu Family, the
Ouyang Family and also… the Dongfang Family; basically, the nine great
families are getting together at Tian Fa! These families haven’t sent
out many people, but the men they have sent are powerful. Especially the
Duanmu family; even their chief — Duanmu Chao Fan — will participate
in this war!”
“Duanmu Chao Fan? Like… ‘Chao Fan’ for ‘fried rice’?” Jun Mo
Xie suddenly spoke up, “This name is quite memorable and profound!”
Dongfang Wen Qing laughed and explained, “The Duanmu Family’s head is
name Duanmu Chao Fan; Chao Fan for ‘extraordinary’. However, he
stutters a bit. So, whenever he pronounces his name… he elongates it
since he thinks very greatly of himself. However, the more he elongated
the name… the more others hear it resemble ‘Chao Fan’ word’s
‘fried rice’ variant. Therefore, people have been calling him Chao
Fan word’s fried rice version since the first meeting of the ‘Nine
Great Families’. In fact, his true name has been almost been
“Oh okay!” Jun Mo Xie said solemnly, “So, this guy is basically
slow-witted. He should be called ‘Slow-witted Chao Fan’. It would
sound far more appropriate!”
“Ha ha…” everyone burst out laughing. Then, Dongfang Wen Qing continued
“In addition, the Golden Flood Castle, the Seven Dragons Mountain, the
Soul Severing Palace and Clear Sky City have also sent a few of their
people. Moreover, there are countless powerful nomadic experts who will
add to the numbers.” Dongfang Wen Qing gave strenuous smile and
continued, “This secret information was divulged to us by Li Jue Tian
before we left. However, I don’t know of any newer events that may have
occurred since then.”
Jun Wu Yi’s frown became increasingly deeper as he heard those
illustrious names. The presence of such strong reinforcements only meant
that the Xuan Beast’s uprising was becoming more and more intense.
“Damn! There are so many!” Jun Mo Xie couldn’t help but whistle. Then,
he continued to speak, “They can easily trample all over Tian Fa if such
strength is being assembled. Then, each person can grab a Xuan Beast, and
take it home as a ‘pet’. What’s the point of going to such a war?
These people will just have their fill and stay idle!”
“Do you even know what you’re saying?!” four mouths roared these words
in unison as the eight eyeballs glared at that rude brat.
“You brat! Your experience is too shallow to know of the dangers! The
Tian Fa forest spreads over tens of thousands of kilometers. And, there
are multitudes of Xuan Beasts living in it! There are at least ten
million of them living there… by a conservative count! And that too,
these are only the level four or higher Xuan beasts we’re talking
about! The gathered experts won’t be able to compete with the full
strength of Tian Fa’s beasts. This truth isn’t pleasant to hear, but
the mere saliva of all those Xuan Beasts is enough to drown these
Dongfang Wen Qing was very angry at his nephew’s ignorance. So, he went
ahead and dealt with that illiterate.
“You must also realize that you would require an extremely huge space to
encounter all of them at once. Ten million Xuan Beasts… wouldn’t they
be squeezed to death even in the prairie? …Let alone inside these
The Young Master Jun gave a disdainful look and shook his head, “There
are many strong people here and there are many strong people there. A
small battle starts when these people start to fight. A military campaign
is constituted of several such battles. And, many campaigns constitute
what we call a war. And after many wars… eventually comes — peace.
Dongfang Wen Qing became enraged after he heard this. So, Jun Wu Yi had
no choice but to hurry up and assuage the situation. However, he had deep
creases on his forehead, “There’s so much trouble because there are so
many people. It wouldn’t have been very difficult if it were only the
three Great Empires, the Xue Hun Manor, the Silver Blizzard City and the
troops from the Prairie’s King. After all, these entities are aware of
the general situation. They understand the military restrictions. So,
there will be space for mediation if conflict arises. But, so many other
forces are also coming together. So, there’s bound to be deep-rooted
enmities and long-standing gratitude and grudges in all this
entanglement. And, it would be hard to say how many people would be
there… and how many of them are wise… Who can say that a few
recklessly spoken words won’t give rise to a large scale conflict
between two families? And, who doesn’t have three or six friends behind
them? Moreover, the Xuan experts who hail from the general society
don’t maintain order like a disciplined army.”
“This problem is a genuine headache,” Dongfang Wen Qing and the other two
nodded in unison.
“We must have a unified command since so many people are participating.
There must be a single commander-in-chief in such a situation. Otherwise,
won’t we just be providing ‘rations’ to the Xuan Beasts if everyone
decides to fight as they please and charge like a swarm of bees?” Jun Mo
Xie added. The four elders were quite appreciative of the first part of
Jun Mo Xie’s words. However, they rolled their eyes when the second
part about providing ‘rations’ to Xuan beasts was spoken.
“This is an evident admission. However, the commander-in-chief must be
one who isn’t occupying that post in name alone. Moreover, he will have
to do a very thankless job. Some conflicts may even get triggered between
officers who occupy insignificant posts. After all, there are forces from
three Empires, and there will be generals from the Prairie as well.
Several of them won’t bow down because they will be there representing
their respective countries!
“However, this problem is a comparatively easier to resolve. The soldiers
will obey the commander-in-chief because they are accustomed and
in-understanding of military duties. That isn’t a big problem. The real
problem is the huge number of powerful experts from around the world.
They’re all undisciplined. Moreover, they aren’t accustomed to
military restrictions. Not only will they not accept each other… but
also any large-scale military command. Each powerful expert will have
their own prestige. So, they won’t bow down to an ordinary general.
This is the allied forces’ greatest problem!”
Jun Wu Yi frowned deeply, “I’ve commanded battles for half of my life.
And, I’ve never seen such an amazing assembly of warriors in the past.
In fact, even the combined strength of my previous commands wouldn’t
come close to this. Yet, I’ve never seen so less hope of victory in the
past. In fact, this is the first time that I don’t even see an
opportunity for victory.
“And, our opponents are the Xuan beasts! They have an unimaginably strict
hierarchy of ranks. Moreover, the Xuan Beast Kings are personally
controlling them in this war. So, the Xuan Beasts would do exactly as
they bid. They will attack at one whistle, and retreat at the next.
“Everything points to disaster.” Jun Wu Yi and Dongfang Wen Qing looked
at each other’s expressions. They looked at each other’s eyes, and
read these words there as well.
“We’ve come this far. Don’t tell me that you wish to back away now?
We’ll see how things progress at every step. It’s good to save
people. But, what’s the point of saving someone if you end-up taking
their place? I’m fine because I believe that we have enough people to
safeguard our own security. As for the fate of others… are we going to
get any money out of saving them?” Jun Mo Xie smiled heartlessly.
Jun Mo Xie was the most confident amongst everyone when it came to this
‘Xuan Beast uprising’ expedition. Jun Mo Xie could easily ensure that
his army wouldn’t suffer any harm if the armies were divided into
different groups. Moreover, he could ensure the defeats of the others…
[This really won’t do! Let’s just go and pretend that this matter is
[Why are these guys making such miserable faces?]
