Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-329
“You little brat! Stop talking such nonsense! How can we selfishly look
out for ourselves under such circumstances? At least ten million Xuan
Beasts will spill out to the inlands if we fail in this war! How many
civilians do you think will suffer? At least tens of millions of innocent
lives will be lost… by a conservative count! This can turn into a huge
Jun Wu Yi sternly chimed-in, “We need to put our personal grudges and
gratitude behind us at this moment. And, we need to work together for our
common good. Only then will we have any chance of hope.”
“Wu Yi is absolutely correct! This battle between man and Xuan Beast will
decide the fate of our continent for the next hundred years! A man of Li
Jue Tian’s arrogance wouldn’t have made the supreme summons after
letting go of his pride if the situation was a minor one! He must’ve
been constrained by the severity of the situation to forego his ego and
make the supreme summons! In fact, he would’ve been condemned by
history if he hadn’t done that!”
Dongfang Wen Qing smiled bitterly, “Several independent experts will be
fighting for profits, and they will surely have a high morale at first.
But, I guarantee that one-third of their numbers would sneak-off after
the first defeat. After all, one has to conserve their strength for
gaining superiority in society! However, we’re done for if all of us
hold the idea of profit in the ‘supreme’ position in such chaotic
“The human nature is very evil… They want to fight with the wind, and
attack the dogs that have fallen into the ditch. However, a majority of
the people won’t refrain from backing away when the winds become rough,
and that dog in the ditch transforms into a tiger. Most people would wait
for the others to fight, and die… they would then try to take advantage
of the situation. Thereafter, they will slip away when no one is looking.
These people would rather lose their face than their lives. They would
say that — ‘the tide’s higher than I can take… I’m not the only
one to lose face in this situation… so, what difference does it
Jun Mo Xie shook his head as he spoke these words in a very cynical tone.
He found it a joy to speak in such a manner. However, he then saw the
expressions of the other four men, and realized that they were turning
increasingly darker. So, he gave a hollow laugh and spoke, “Damn! I have
to take a piss! I’ve been holding it in with such difficulty since
early morning. But, you people speak so slowly!” he said this, turned
away, and escaped.
The four men looked at each other in dismay. [This mischievous brat
doesn’t have any shame!]
“This matter isn’t looking good. We will go and meet Li Jue Tian once
we reach Tian Fa. Then, we’ll come to your forces and protect you. Mo
Xie’s ideology is indeed dependable. We will get an opportunity to
survive if we stick together. As Mo Xie said… saving others is a good
deed, but putting ourselves in danger for them is meaningless. We have to
Jun Wu Yi nodded. Then, he looked up into the sky and sighed, “I don’t
know the cause of this calamity… or where it came from… or what
instigated such a huge disaster? But, it can be assumed that the Xuan
Beasts wouldn’t leave Tian Fa without any rhyme-or-reason. So, who
instigated them? I would flay the man alive if I knew his identity! This
person has taken the entire world for a joke!”
The other three men agreed.
The Young Master Jun had returned after he had initially slipped away. He
was presently hiding in the corner of the tent, and was overhearing the
conversation. He broke into a cold sweat after he heard their words. His
heart was shouting his innocence… [My original intention was to teach
the Xue Hun Manor a lesson. How did they dare to lay their eyes on the
Jun Family’s daughter-in-law? But, I never knew that it would turn into
such a big issue!]
[I didn’t deliberately bring this matter to such a state … so, you
can’t blame me!]
The next day, Jun Wu Yi got to know that Guan Qing Han and Dugu Xiao Yi
had also been travelling with his nephew in secret. Commander Jun almost
went mad with anger when he saw the guilty expressions on the faces of
those two women. He nearly scolded Jun Mo Xie to death. However, he
didn’t stop at ‘just’ the tongue-lashing like the previous time. In
fact, he brandished a rod to beat-up Jun Mo Xie…
[This is such a dangerous place. How can these two come along?]
This resulted in a game of ‘hide and seek’ between Jun Mo Xie and Jun
Wu Yi. The Young Master Jun would move far away from whichever place it
was probable for his uncle to arrive at. He’d naturally do this in
order to evade his uncle’s rod. He would escape like a quick hare… so
as to never come face-to-face with his uncle.
The army meandered forwards, and eventually reached the Southern Heaven
City on the third day since the link-up. It had now been thirty-three
days since they had left the Tian Xiang City. The army had been
travelling at approximately 180kms-a-day the entire journey. This meant
that they had covered over 5000kms after crossing many mountains and
wading through many streams.
Everyone breathed-in the cold air after they reached the Southern Heaven
The area outside the Southern Heaven City was barren for almost 500kms.
The Tian Fa forest was still fine, but the human habitations were all in
ruins. Jun Mo Xie looked in the direction of the Southern Heaven City,
and laughed at his foe’s misfortune so wildly… that he pulled a
muscle in his stomach.
The Xue Hun Manor’s site had turned into a base camp for the Xuan
They had found large groups of Xuan Beasts on the road to the Southern
Heaven City. These groups would swarm over to attack any experts they’d
find in the vicinity. But, the Xuan beasts’ discipline was incredible.
They hadn’t found any trace of a Xuan Beast in the 150km before they
reached the Southern Heaven City.
Therefore, one could tell that the Xuan Beasts’ temporary target was
the population of the Southern Heaven City. Or perhaps… the people the
Xuan Beasts harbored hatred towards. Like… the Xue Hun Manor’s Li Jue
Tian… or his son…
The scale of the Southern Heaven City was in no way lesser than the Tian
Xiang City. It was the first southern city in the continent. However, the
Xuan Beasts had already occupied the surrounding mountains, and had
created a somewhat iron-bucket-like encirclement.
Jun Wu Yi’s forces finally took security in their numbers, and advanced
towards the Southern Heaven City. The experience was daunting even though
they didn’t run into any mishaps. But, they managed to enter the city.
And, the very moment they entered the city…
“ROAR!” a loud howl resounded from the northern end of Southern Heaven
City. It split the air as it echoed into the distance. It seemed like it
was conveying a message.
The “ROAR!” sound resonated from the north to the south, and the west to
the east. It echoed in all directions, and spread its message. It
transmitted throughout the city as it travelled south.
“ROAR!” a sharp howl resounded from the southern end of the city in
answer, and the message again resounded back and forth.
It seemed like two people were exchanging information. One of them had
seemingly said, “Here we go again. Ten-thousand troops have arrived; this
time from Tian Xiang.”
And, the other one replied, “I know…”
This interpretation may not be ‘exact’, but these howls must’ve
meant more or less the same things.
“Wow, these Xuan Beasts are truly disciplined! They’re even better than
the army’s troops. This is simply amazing; I love this,” Jun Mo Xie
praised in a heartfelt manner. He then shook his head before he
continued, “The Xuan Beasts aren’t that dreadful. I believe they are
The sounds of two lovely laughs resounded from his side. Jun Mo Xie had
dressed Guan Qing Han and Dugu Xiao Yi as two petite soldiers before they
had entered the city. In fact, no one could tell that these two slim
soldiers were women at one glance. This decision had obviously been met
with strong and dissatisfactory appeals from the two beautiful women.
However, Jun Mo Xie had insisted on it nevertheless, and had embodied his
‘iron-blooded’ stance to make them comply…
Dongfang Wen Qing helplessly looked at his ‘incomparably useless’
nephew. [This is astounding! This brat has decided to joke at such a
juncture? He is genuinely stupid if he isn’t afraid of them!]
Then, he sighed and spoke-up, “The transmitting of these messages was
done by Peak Eight Level Lion Beasts. The Tian Fa’s Lord uses such
high-level Xuan Beasts for the transmission of messages. This matter
isn’t a joke…”
“Damn! Wow! This is so awesome!” Jun Mo Xie smacked his lips and
continued, “Why didn’t we see any of the flying beasts on the road? I
wish we could catch them and saddle them like horses. They’d be so
useful for ‘picking up girls’! Any young woman would fall for me
after they took one look at them!”
Dongfang Wen Qing stared at him wide-eyed, and started gasping in anger.
This brat had become so unbearable that he would soon have
brain-hemorrhage due to excessive anger.
Uncle Dongfang finally realized that his nephew’s
‘continent-shaking’ reputation as a ‘debauchee’ wasn’t without
He also realized that no normal person was capable of having any kind of
a regular exchange with this degenerate and perverted youngster… It
would end-up sounding like a chicken talking to a duck… The language
itself would seem foreign…
The Southern Heaven City’s troops showed no resentment towards the
assistance-force that had just arrived from Tian Xiang. The several
high-ranking officers stationed inside the wall respectfully welcomed Jun
Wu Yi’s army into the city.
Jun Wu Yi had been a bit doubtful on this aspect. The Southern Heaven
City was as famous as the Tian Xiang City, and occupied an extremely wide
area. However, many people resided in this city. Moreover, many
reinforcements from different Empires, organizations, and other places
from around the world had arrived there by now. Therefore, Jun Wu Yi had
anticipated that the city would be overcrowded, and wouldn’t have any
space left to accommodate the arrival of his troops. [But, it would be
too risky to station a majority of my troops outside the city walls.] He
had been very worried about this point.
However, his 20,000 troops entered the city with ease. In fact, the
troops that were already station inside the city remained silent, and
even seemed a bit embarrassed. [This is very a puzzling marvel!]
But, his doubts were resolved by the time the entire army got stationed
in the city…
Experts came-and-went on both side of the city’s road… Some of them
were bandaged; this was indicative of the injuries they had sustained.
Some had a white cloth around their injured heads. There was a lot of
clamor around the city, but it didn’t feel that chaotic. However, they
realized that the city was missing something as they travelled down the
The Young Master Jun thought for a while, and realized what was wrong,
“How come there aren’t any local people in this city?” These words
called everyone else into attention, and woke them from their reveries.
However, it wasn’t that there were no people there. It was just that…
there were only a very small number of them. And surprisingly, the ones
present… were at the prime of their lives. No one could spot any old
and infirm men, or women and young children inside the city…
The highest-ranking officer in the city’s garrison was a General named
Wan Wu Yan. He smiled bitterly and said, “The Xuan Beast’s uprising is
extremely huge. So, we couldn’t dare to ignore it. We’ve migrated the
women, children, old and infirm men about a 150kms away. We did this a
fortnight ago in order to save them from this calamity. We’ve only
retained men who are at the prime of their lives, and a few necessary
stores. This general will personally go and recall all of them if we are
able to defeat this Xuan Beast Uprising. We may not be able to live
happily and work in peace… But, we can at least defend our families and
Jun Wu Yi felt a sense of great veneration for the man.
“General Wan, this Jun admires your feelings for your people in times
Wan Wu Yan looked pained. He then smiled bitterly, “This Uprising is
surely unprecedented. Powerful Xuan Beasts have infiltrated the city at
least a dozen times in order to look for trouble. And, they’ve caused
more casualties than I can count. So, why trouble the people? I’ve
guarded this desolate post of the Southern Heaven City for the past
twelve years… The people of this place aren’t exactly the most
civilized, but they’re still like my parents, relatives, friends and
younger siblings. So, I wouldn’t leave this place even if had the
The Southern Heaven City was his homeland; he had grown up here. So, he
looked at it with extreme warmth and yearning…
The atmosphere had suddenly become heavy and stifling.
“To move so many people must’ve required a lot of effort?” Jun Mo Xie
changed the subject.
“The Southern Heaven isn’t like the interiors of the continent. So, the
population here isn’t that large even if the city is big. We’ve moved
around 1,543,900 or so people out of the city and its surrounding areas,”
Wan Wu Yan said in a somewhat gratified and proud manner. He then
chuckled, “The effort it took if of no concern… This was a matter of
over 1,500,000 lives! The hard work was worth it!”
Jun Wu Yi looked at the ancient Southern Heaven City and said, “General
Wan, your painstaking work won’t be in vain. This Jun promises that
General Wan’s tremendous efforts won’t be wasted!”
“I hope so. I just… request Third Master Jun…” General Wan stayed
quite for a while, and then stuttered those words.
They reorganized the army and made arrangements for the camp. Afterwards,
they went with General Wan Wu Yan to the City Lord’s official hall to
discuss the pressing matters.
Jun Wu Yi suddenly jumped scared after they turned the bend.
[This is the official hall?]
[This discussion is at the public square?!]
The City Lord’s hall had been torn down along with the other
unnecessary constructions. All that was left was a large drill ground
which could accommodate around ten thousand soldiers. The City Lord’s
original stage-platform was still present. It was around three meters in
height, and was adorned with thick green cloth. Jun Mo Xie glanced at it,
and felt that it looked like a stage from a drama-play.
Several luxurious tents had been set up on either side of stage. And, the
grand banners fluttered in the fierce autumn wind in front of each of
these luxurious tents. Around a hundred imposing banners fluttered
together. The also had writings on them — “Xue Hun manor”, “Silver
Blizzard City”, “Ouyang”, “Duanmu”, “Baili”, “Beigong”, “Wenren”,
“Zuoqiu”, “Shen Ci”, “Yu Tang”, “Soul Severing Palace” and so on…
Jun Mo Xie became exhilarated. His eyebrows shot up, and his eyes shone
with happiness as he laughed and said, “This is unexpected! I didn’t
know that this would become such a huge convention of all the great
martial artists! This is fu*ing exciting! There are basically no ordinary
tramps around here…”
However, the Third Master Jun Wu Yi didn’t take this so lightly. He
puckered his eyebrows…
It was very important to have a unified command if they were to have any
chance of winning this war. Those independent tyrannical experts could
perhaps lead a scuffle or a ‘gang fight’ with ten… or maybe a few
more people. However, Jun Wu Yi knew that none of them were capable of
leading a large and unified force of hundreds-of-thousands to war.
However, it was evident that the armies and troops of the Big Empires and
the people from the Noble Martial Arts families were on equal-footing in
the present circumstances. In fact, it could even be said that the
army’s status had been raised to the top.
Regular troops would never be held to any importance by powerful Xuan
experts during regular times. But… were these regular times? Wouldn’t
it be the biggest joke in the world if these people looked through a slit
in the door, and thought that they could do as they please, and fight as
they liked against the terrible Xuan Beast Kings who had a unified
command over the entire Xuan Beasts’ uprising?
“Commander Jun, we have set-up the tent for the Tian Xiang Army’s
command over there,” General Wan Wu Yan smiled and pointed with his
finger. He had pointed to a huge tent. It was pitched in the middle of a
huge space, and was covered in green cloth. Two huge and sturdy poles had
been dug into that ground on either side of it. They’d roll-up the
entrance screen, and would find that the tent was very neat on the
inside. It was also quite spacious. So much so that the tent could easily
accommodate twenty people… with some room still to spare.
A red banner flew high in front of the tent. It had “Tian Xiang — Jun”
written on it. The three words fluttered as the banner flew high like a
spiritual dragon, but they could easily be seen intermittently. This
banner was taller than the ones of the other factions by at least three
meters. It was also the only one which had the name of an individual
“Huh?” Jun Wu Yi looked at Wan Wu Yan with a questioning look; he was
Wan Wu Yan laughed gently. His eyes were full of reverence. “I have
always revered the four Commanders of Tian Xiang’s Jun Family. The
great Marshall — Jun Zhan Tian; the White Commander — Jun Wu Hui; the
Devine Iron-Blooded Battle Commander — Jun Wu Meng, and the Blood
General — Jun Wu Yi! I’m proud to host the Tian Xiang Empire’s Jun
Family. Many extreme supreme experts have gathered here in the Southern
Heaven City, but this is still my territory. This matter is related to my
Southern Heaven City, and I won’t allow Tian Xiang’s hero to be
beneath anyone here! So, I request you to grace the residence…
“Many thanks!” Jun Wu Yi remained silent for a while before he managed to
solemnly utter those two words.
“I’ve been hearing many things these days, and many people seem to have
opinions about the Jun Family. You need to be careful Commander Jun,” Wan
Wu Yan lowered his voice as he cautioned. Jun Wu Yi nodded slowly as his
eyes filled with unwavering determination. However, Jun Mo Xie’s eyes
flashed with a cold light.
Jun Mo Xie slowly pushed the wheelchair forward. Four deputy generals of
the Tian Xiang Army followed him in formation. Their eyes were alert, and
their hands were on the hilt of their swords. And, the three fearless
Dongfang swords walked beside him.
People from every faction leisurely started to enter the wide space at
once. If they paid attention… they would notice that Jun Mo Xie was
pushing the wheelchair in the center of the field. He was neither an inch
to the left of the field’s center… nor to the right.
This was an extremely aggressive approach.
[This is my land! It’s my territory! I’ll do as I please! And, I’ll
move the way I want to!]
Their route was such that people from several factions were able to
inspect them from both sides of the field. And, everyone shot arrows from
The atmosphere had suddenly become very oppressive. It seemed that Jun Mo
Xie and Jun Wu Yi had brought heavy weather and high pressure with them.
The six men moved calmly forward. But, the people on the sides could only
feel as if these men were a powerful and invincible current of steel that
was silently marching forward. Most people couldn’t sigh as they
watched these men walk forward in their firm and resolute stance.
The biting-cold wind suddenly started to whistle over the Southern Heaven
City. The dark clouds of thunder started to rumble in the heavens above
the city, and slowly started to converge over the field. A gale whistled
in the field, and the dust started to roll. The numerous banners started
to flutter in the wind, and started to make rustling sounds. However,
even the rustling sounds of the banners seemed neatly organized in this
The dust blew into their faces. This made the four deputy generals and
the three Dongfang men squint, and their movements became a bit sluggish.
However, Jun Wu Yi remained calm and tranquil. His expression was still
stern; even his eyebrows didn’t flinch.
Jun Mo Xie pushed the wheelchair easily and indifferently behind him. His
eyebrows rested like vigorous dragons… dragons which would break out
and fly into the air at any time. His elegant, desolate and demon-like
face was completely still. It seemed like he hadn’t even noticed the
changes in the sky, or the multitudes of burning gazes around him. The
speed of his movements was neither too fast, nor too slow. And, they
remained unaffected still…
This uncle-nephew duo seemed a flashing divine sword that was freely
cleaving through the storm to the eyes of the onlookers.
A long strip was cloven in the crowd by the two men as they moved forward.
This area was within the Tian Xiang Empire’s limits. And, the Tian
Xiang City was also the closest amongst the ones that had sent
reinforcements. Therefore, everyone was resentful over the fact that the
troops from Tian Xiang had arrived last. They believed that Tian Xiang
had set the timing of the arrival of its troops very precisely in order
to embarrass them. This was one of the major reasons why the people from
the various factions hadn’t come out to greet the Tian Xiang Army at
the time of their arrival.
However, they didn’t even speak of the thought of censure as they saw
the uncle-nephew duo gradually make their way forward. None of them could
recall the things they had discussed earlier. Everyone was in a dignified
mood. And, everyone was respectful.
Even Xiao Han — who was the most jealous of Jun Wu Yi, and had wanted
him dead — couldn’t help a look of envy and inferiority overtake his
[Is it… is it possible that I’m genuinely not his equal?]
Jun Wu Yi didn’t have ‘Spirit Xuan’ cultivation; nor did he have
moves as strong as those of the Great Masters. However, he had become a
true hero around the world ever since he had commanded those millions in
that decisive battle; he had indeed earned himself the place of a famous
General. Countless Sky Xuan experts, Spirit Xuan experts… and even the
Great Masters thought of him as an incomparably apt General. He had
distinguished his name as a commander since that moment onwards.
His demeanor was such that it felt as if he grasped the fate of millions
of soldiers in his palms. It felt that a snap of his fingers to light a
beacon of war a thousand miles away, and scorch the lands with the
slaughter of a thousand generals. He was the strongest general there had
ever been. Any strategy that ever came out of his command tent could only
bring victory. Even the strongest of Xuan experts couldn’t boast of
such an unbeatable strategic mind.
This tyrant had the fate of nations in his palms! He disdained the
commoners, and rebuked their lowly mettle!
They were only two men, but they had enough strength to send cold shivers
down everyone else’s spine. This seemingly calm duo emitted an aura
which made people look up and take notice.
[I will tread the land ahead… even if it is a mountain of knives, a
forest of swords, or even a river of hellfire! I… will tread it flat!]
The soldiers from the Shen Ci and Yu Tang Empires also stood up. They
couldn’t help but straighten their backs at the sight of their
once-enemy General. They looked at him with fervent gazes as if he were a
divine idol of the military.
This was a warriors’ freemasonry!
The party of nine men rhythmically moved in silence, and entered their
The weather had changed very suddenly. The sky had gotten covered with
clouds, and had darkened.
Then, a loud voice suddenly boomed from somewhere, “You’re truly worthy
of being called the ‘Great Earth-Shaking Blood General! You possess the
awe-inspiring bearing of a true ‘Commander’! I’m convinced of it! I
— Sikong An Ye — truly admire you! And, I apologize for not coming to
greet you at the gate! This Sikong would like to have a few drinks with
Commander Jun if he has any free time!”
The bold and booming voice shook the ground as its source walked out from
the tent beneath the Sikong banner. He was a tall and strong-looking
person. His built was tough, stocky and exceptionally majestic. However,
his rough looks gave-off a harmonizing and comfortable feeling. He was
dressed in green, and both the sides of his face had cuts. One could see
the growth of a stubble of whiskers as thick as a young dragon’s on his
Jun Mo Xie shot a cursory glance at the person. He must’ve been at
least two meters tall. The man seemed like a majestic iron tower as he
stationed himself in front of their tent.
This person was the Sikong Family’s foremost expert — Sikong An Ye.
“Elder Brother Sikong seriously embarrasses me! This little brother is
your host, and he truly apologizes to the numerous seniors present for
reaching here so late! And, the elder brother and I can have a chat over
some wine any time it interests the elder brother!” Jun Wu Yi’s clear
and sonorous voice echoed for a while.
“Good! Good!” Sikong An Ye laughed heartily.
“Ha ha… this… this head… of the family… wanted to talk to you.
But, this… this person… comes before… Third General Jun… I…
I’m the Duanmu Family’s head… Duanmu Chao… Chao Fao…
This man’s delayed speech had a strong stutter to it. However, the
expression on his face, and the tone of his speech were enough to
ascertain that this man thought too highly of himself.
Jun Mo Xie burst into giggles. Merely listening to this speech was enough
to determine that he was ‘the’ “Duanu Chao Fan” his uncle Dongfang
had told him about; it could be no other.
It wasn’t certain whether he was ‘out of the ordinary’ as his name
suggested. But, it was evident that he was ‘self-important’.
“The head of the Duanmu Family is very polite. I will come and pay a call
to the family-head the moment I’m free.” Jun Wu Yi’s voice was
neither too pleased, nor angry. Yet, it made people feel comfortable; as
if they had just bathed in a spring breeze.
“No… not… guest… polite…” Duanmu Chao Fan replied with a smile.
He was about to speak further when a mystifying voice resounded,
“Wouldn’t that be too arrogant of these two men. They don’t belong to
the Tian Xiang Emperor’s Family. Isn’t that guy ‘just’ Jun Wu Yi?”
Jun Mo Xie looked at the source of that voice — only to find a man not
older than twenty years in age. He stood in a straight posture, and was
very handsome of face. However, one could see a hint of maliciousness on
his brow. He stood beneath the Xue Hun Manor’s banner. The man was
gowned in embroidered silk, and had a long sword hung from his hip in its
ornate and fragrant scabbard. He looked like a rare warrior of his
generation. However, he seemed to be looking at them with disdain.
Jun Mo Xie immediately figured out the opposite party’s identity. Aside
from the toad who wanted to have the swan’s meat… he was also Li Jue
Tian’s only son — Li Teng Yun. Who else could it be? [Your father has
sprouted a very handsome, but vulgar son! Would we have had a war with
the Xuan Beasts if it weren’t for you? I will cripple you the first
opportunity I get!]
Jun Mo Xie laughed as he stepped out.
How could Jun Wu Yi — the commander of all the warriors of his
generation — get involved in this trivial matter? Therefore, it was
only appropriate that the debauchee Young Master Jun dealt with it. He
set-out light as a feather, “This man seems to have his eyes on his head
since it seems like his nose is pointing skyward. It seems that the Young
Master of the Xue Hun Manor likes to bully people. You are the bully of a
Young Master Li — Li Teng Yun; right?”
“You! Humph! Would I require power to deal with you?” There was a hint of
maliciousness in Li Teng Yun’s eyes as he scoffed and spoke with
disdain, “Your Jun Family has arrived so late in such circumstances. And,
that too when you’re the hosts! What mischief were you up to? Aren’t
other people even allowed to ask you this question?”
“We are obviously aware that the situation is dire. And, as for the topic
of our ‘late’ arrival is concerned — why didn’t you ask our
Emperor for aid sooner? Secondly, I’d like to ask your Xue Hun Manor
— why didn’t you send out the summons sooner if the situation was
that urgent? What were you up to?”
Jun Mo Xie snorted and continued, “Oh! That’s right! The Xue Hun
Manor’s reputation is very important! Would this matter have come to
such a point if it weren’t for your arrogant, blind and inflexible
behavior? How could you delay the summons till the point where the matter
has become nearly impossible to salvage?
“Aren’t you ashamed at your incompetence and lack of strength to ask
the help of others? And then, you have the courage to blame others? The
others can ask this question. However, you and your Xue Hun Manor
Jun Mo Xie smiled, “Granted, it may be a duty of many to ask this
question. But, many senior experts are present here. So, how did you get
a turn before them? Don’t forget, you’re Li Jue Tian’s son… not
Li Jue Tian himself! So, who are you? And, what qualifications do you
really have of your own?”
“How dare you speak to me like that? You’ve got some guts! Who are
you?!” Li Teng Yun glared. He realized that he couldn’t rival that
person in this discussion. So, he changed the discussion into an
interrogation of his counterpart’s identity while harboring the
intention of punishing him at the appropriate moment.
“This elder brother is called Jun Mo Xie!” The Young Master Jun smiled
carelessly. “You must have heard the name of this famous elder brother.
Isn’t it quite well-known? A reputation that pierces the ears like
thunder…? Like the bright moon in the sky…? Aren’t I someone who
lives up to such a reputation? You must admire me ah.”
“So, you are ‘that’ Jun Mo Xie! That debauchee wastrel from the Jun
Family! The famous lecher who never shies from committing any crime in
the Tian Xiang City! It’s quite an honor to meet you, Young Master!
Your evil reputation is truly like ‘thunder to the ears’! Your
reputation as a ‘filth’ is truly justified!”
Li Teng Yun was aware that he had grasped his opponent’s biggest
weakness. So, he laughed loudly and continued, “The strongest experts of
the age have gathered here! Yet, a ruffian like you has come along? What
seniority does a hoodlum Young Master like you have here?”
Jun Mo Xie smiled mischievously, “I don’t deny that I am a lecher who
wouldn’t shirk from any crime. However, this debauchee will still never
try to grab a young woman who is already a daughter-in-law of another
house. You are my senior in this matter, Young Master Li. Us debauchees
should learn from your example!”
“You… Guan Qing Han is a good woman. But, your Jun Family has forcibly
seized her! The two of us are meant for each other! I’m only saving her
from hell. What’s wrong with that? Moreover, your eldest brother died
years ago. Do you wish for her to guard your dear departed brother’s
memory all her life? What kind of logic is this?” Li Teng Yun’s face
reddened. He had suddenly become very angry. He naturally couldn’t
allow this contempt to his name. So, he hastily quibbled those words in
“You two are meant for each other? You are saving her from hell? Did you
even take her consent for this?” Jun Mo Xie looked up to the sky and
laughed heartily. “I never knew that someone so shameless existed in this
world! I had begun to take that for granted. However, you are a master of
distorting the truth, and confusing the right and the wrong. You tried to
snatch a woman; that too a woman who’s a daughter-in-law of another
family. Moreover, you threatened the woman’s family with complete
destruction if they didn’t hand her over to you! Is that what you mean
when you speak that you two are truly meant for each other, and that you
only wish to save her from hell! You genuinely stand out from the masses!
Today, I — the biggest wastrel of a debauchee — have no choice but to
step down in order to make place for Young Master Li. And, I shall write
his name on that banner of debauchery! I sincerely admire your
shamelessness; it is the greatest in the world!”
Many people from powerful families had gathered on that field, but most
of them didn’t know of this matter. But, they glared at Li Teng Yun
with disdain after they heard those two young men talk. The Xue Hun Manor
was a hegemonic family, but this was too outrageous. However, these
enraged people wouldn’t fear any consequences when faced with something
The people of this world attached a lot of importance to monastic
discipline. However, Li Teng Yun had seriously offended their norms if he
had genuinely done something like this.
“That’s enough! We needn’t discuss this further!” an angry shout
resounded from a tent. It wasn’t very loud, but its explosive echoes
still managed to shake everyone.
A few silhouettes slowly walked out of the tent, and their majestic auras
covered the entire ground.
The first person was tall. His had a dull face. Three wisps of a black
beard floated in the wind, and down to his chest. His eyes radiated with
power. They weren’t full of arrogance or prestige. But, they radiated a
natural bearing of the greatest power in the world. It made everyone feel
like the person had superhuman and tyrannical strength.
He didn’t mean to be arrogant. However, he made everyone feel that no
man was worthy in his eyes. It felt that even the blue sky above
wouldn’t dare to contend with him.
It was this man who had shouted just a moment ago.
Jun Mo Xie had never seen him before. But, he knew that the man who
seemed forty-or-fifty years of age… had actually been famous for the
past sixty years. He was none other than the Great Master Li Jue Tian!
No one besides him could’ve had such a powerful and heaven-shaking
The Great Master Li Jue Tian must’ve been at least a hundred years old.
Yet, he still looked very young! Jun Mo Xie criticized him inwardly; [no
wonder this hundred year old fart has a son of just twenty years of age.
Just look at the way he looks! It won’t be a surprise if he spawns a
few more children.]
[He is indeed… a monster!]
Li Jue Tian was followed by the Great Master of Life and Death — Shi
Chang Xiao; the Cold Blooded Master — Lei Wu Bei; the divine
eagle-fighting Master — the Solitary Falcon, and another person. This
person’s looks were ice-cold. His face was like a black mask. The
man’s robes were black, and so were his boots. The scabbard of his
sword that hung from his hip was also jet-black, and so was the hilt of
The person resembled a pitch-black blade. He stood in a very calm manner,
but everyone still felt as if a sword-energy was pressing down upon them.
His sword-energy could dash against the ninth level of heaven! This
person was none other than the one who Solitary Falcon had fought years
ago… the Divine Storm Sword — Feng Juan Yun. He originally wasn’t a
part of the Eight Great Masters. However, his name had been recently
included in the list. The man was also a peerless swordsman.
However, the Young Master Jun was very confident that the Solitary Falcon
had left his old rival far behind. After all, the Solitary Falcon had
made breakthroughs after he had received instructions from the Young
“Since everyone is here — I request the leaders of the different
factions to come together and discuss the strategy to repel the enemy,”
Li Jue Tian unenthusiastically skimmed his gaze around the field. He
didn’t mention the argument between the Young Master Jun and his son.
His appearance seemed placated. However, he glanced at Jun Mo Xie, and
the Young Master Jun felt that he was shooting sharp daggers at him. In
fact, Jun Mo Xie felt that his gaze was so sharp that it would pierce his
eyes. The Young Master Jun couldn’t help but feel himself shudder from
the very depths of his soul.
[I have to be wary of him from the bottom of my heart!]
[He can’t be matched!]
[No one is capable-enough to match him!]
This was the first time that Jun Mo Xie had felt so dispirited in his
He had never faced such a high-level Great Master before. The Young
Master Jun could’ve easily spoken and laughed freely if it were Shi
Chang Xiao, Lei Wu Bei or the Solitary Falcon. However, he had felt a
very strong and incapacitating feeling when he faced Li Jue Tian’s
[This must be similar to some kind of spirit attack! One wouldn’t be
able to move an inch forward after the seed of such fear has been
implanted in their mind.]
However, Jun Mo Xie was very angry since the Great Master had tried to
cover up his son’s fault. In fact, the Young Master Jun was fuming with
[You are the Second Great Master. Yet, you involve yourself in the
quarrel of two youngsters to avenge and vent your son’s anger! This is
[Bullsh*t Second Great Master; this guy is just a show!]
However, he had also realized that Li Jue Tian had spoiled really his son.
[He knew fully-well that his son was in the wrong in that argument. Yet,
he doesn’t say anything to resolve it… and then he glares his anger
and prestige at the family of the victim!]
Jun Mo Xie finally understood why the two Xuan Beast Kings had only
agreed to break the man’s son’s legs… and not take the boy’s
life. And, even that had elicited such a strong reaction from Li Jue
Tian. He had eventually issued the Supreme Summons instead of making the
compromise. The Young master Jun finally understood why the situation had
been brought to such a stage.
Jun Mo Xie quickly closed his eyes. He then initiated the Art of
Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune, and got rid of that dreadful feeling.
However, his heart still trembled with fear.
Li Jue Tian’s strength was many levels above the Great Master Solitary
Falcon and the Fifth Master Lei Wu Bei.
He was truly worthy of being called the second most powerful person of
Everyone agreed with Li Jue Tian’s words. And unexpectedly, no one had
noticed the shady look Li Jue Tian had given Jun Mo Xie.
He was anyway convinced that he wouldn’t get any justice even if people
found out. After all, who would clench fists against the Second Greatest
Master for a young and wastrel debauchee? He was convinced that no one
would pick this choice of action…
Everyone started to appear from their respective tents. But suddenly, a
faintly discernible yet long-drawn-out screech was heard from somewhere.
Everyone was shocked. So, they all strained their ears to listen to it
The screech then started to magnify. It seemed to have appeared right
where they were. The sound also travelled between the spaces of numerous
tents. It had suddenly changed from something barely audible… to a
booming sound. It seemed like the heavens had been rendered apart. This
screech had the capacity to tear people’s eardrums.
“Puff…” many soldiers in the Southern Heaven City faced upwards, and
started to spray blood from their mouths. The loud screech had shaken
them on the inside, and had managed to injure them. Moreover, the entity
which had issued that screech was at least five kilometers away.
Such power was extremely frightening!
Then, the mad and ferocious scream ceased it had momentarily gone
berserk. In fact, it only stopped after it had made a resolute grunting
sound. Suddenly, everyone realized that the sound had actually been quite
That sound had just subsided. And then, millions of Xuan beasts from the
innumerable mountains, woods and streams raised their heads and
screeched, roared, and howled in reply. The sound of tens-of-millions of
Xuan Beasts burst forth with the power of a tsunami… or a terrible
The people present on the field started to tremble and ruffle.
The resulting screech was so loud and incisive that the clouds which had
densely covered the blue sky… disappeared. They had been driven away by
the power of this violent screech!
The sky had become clear and bright!
Li Jue Tian’s expression became extremely solemn as he looked into the
distance. He couldn’t hide the shock this screech had jolted him with,
“Tian… Fa’s Lord… has… arrived…”
