Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-33
Chapter 033 A Small Shop Within The Heavy Rain
The rain pitter-pattered on the bamboo rain hat. Jun Xie left the Jun
Residence swiftly through the side door and strolled his way into the
main street. The main street, which had been bustling with activities and
pedestrians, was now empty due to the sudden heavy downpour. The shops on
both sides however were brimming with crowds of people. Every now and
again, the sounds of either laughter or curses can be heard coming out
from the shops.
Under the heavy downpour, the clamorous noise seemed as though it had
merged together with both Heaven and Earth. Jun Xie strolled alone within
the heavy rain, watching as the rain transformed into a curtain between
Heaven and Earth. As the rain pitter-pattered on his bamboo rain hat, Jun
Xie felt his own insignificance and loneliness.
So what if he had been the world’s number one assassin in his past
life? So what if he had been granted a great opportunity to transcend
death, transmigrating into a different world? So what if he managed to
obtain the immeasurably mysterious treasure, the Hongjun Pagoda? So what
if he has the opportunity to practice the mysterious “Art of Unlocking
In the end, he was but a droplet of water amidst an ocean between Heaven
and Earth. So diminutive, so solitary, so alone…
“The predecessors will never meet their ancestors; the successors will
never meet their descendants. Leisurely studying Heaven and Earth, and
yet alone and inferior,” Jun Xie laughed bitterly as he shook his head.
He thought to himself that he should have written this poem. Born in
another world, he was truly a man without precedence and without a
descendant! The true descendant of Yan and Huang in this world was none
other than himself!
[TL: “The descendant of Yan and Huang” represents the Han Chinese of
The heavy rain and its accompanying fog was extremely heavy, water
covered every inch of the ground. The rain and fog obscured the skies,
causing everything to become illusory and hazy. Even the surrounding
downpour seemed to have lost its sound… Jun Xie suddenly felt as though
everything was a dream, every single person and every single matter no
longer existed. There was only him, walking alone through the heavy
Jun Xie suddenly felt as though he was a ghost, or perhaps he was simply
sleepwalking, his heavy footsteps resounded in the rain and yet it
sounded so far away. This incomplete feeling caused Jun Xie who was a
cold-blooded assassin to feel vulnerable and weak.
He suddenly found himself facing a dark place and realized that he had
unconsciously exited the main street into a narrow alley. In the midst of
the rain, a bamboo pole stood tilted from a shop, singled out as it hung
conspicuously. From within came the smell of wine.
The only way to solve sorrows was to shut it out!
The only way to make worries disappear was wine! Jun Xie hesitated for a
moment before entering into the wine shop.
The shop had barely anyone within it. It had fifteen tables, yet all of
them were empty. Considering how heavy the rain was, it was only natural
for the shop’s business to be affected. Especially when considering how
small this shop was. But, within a corner of the shop, one person sat.
Wearing a face concealing bamboo rain hat, he sat down and helped
himself. He seemed to be entertaining himself, but it seemed more as
though he was feeling solitary and lonely.
Jun Xie randomly ordered two side dishes and a jug of wine. He then sat
silently in a corner, helping himself to it as well.
He was alone in a small shop within the heavy rain.
This cup I toast to those I’ve killed in my past life. Forgive me, for
there is no chance for you to have revenge. Gulp!
This cup I toast to those whose life I will take in my new life. Forgive
me, for you are fated to die by my hands. Cheers!
This cup I toast to my Master and fellow brother and sisters. I wish you
success in your missions. May you all be able to retire early and live a
This cup I toast…
Jun Xie drank alone, one cup after the other. Without making a single
noise, he poured all his emotions, all his lamentations, all his
loneliness into the cups of wine and drank them all away. Everything
flowed together with the wine into his stomach! From today onwards, in
this world, I am Jun Moxie! Jun Xie, the number one assassin from another
world is nothing more than a distant memory!
The wine of the small shop was nothing remarkable, it felt slightly weak
in taste. As someone who was used to drinking high grade wines, this wine
was actually a bit difficult for Jun Xie to drink! However, Jun Xie’s
mind at this moment was not considering whether the wine was good or not.
Even if he were to be given the celestial fairy wine, he would not be
able to taste any of it. All he could feel now was bitterness, tartness
Within this unfamiliar world, this will be the only time that he indulged
in these feelings of weakness!
From now on, I will thread the path of the Evil Monarch! An iron blooded
path! From this moment on, I will utilize the mountain of bones and ocean
of blood from my past to achieve my unparalleled reputation as the Evil
Monarch once more!
The Otherworldly Evil Monarch is I, Moxie!
Yet another cup was downed, but Jun Xie had yet to feel drowsy. He simply
continued pouring one cup after another, gulping it down…
Jun Xie did not realize that his strange act where he casted everything
he had encountered aside, as though he was the only one within this
world, had completely cut him off from everything, the skies, the ground,
the wind, the rain… It was an independent loneliness of a person
forsaken by his own world. The faint feelings of joy, solitude and
loneliness, all merged perfectly into one upon his body.
It was only at this moment that Jun Xie remained Jun Xie, the mysterious
number one assassin and not Jun Moxie!
In the corner of the shop, the only customer who had only given Jun Xie a
glance when he came in was now staring intently at Jun Xie. He watched as
Jun Xie sat alone, drinking away his sorrows, exuding an elegant form of
loneliness; his tolerance deep and far beyond the average person, causing
him to become curious.
Jun Xie himself did not know how much wine he had drank; he only
continued raising his cup. As he was about to drink another cup, he
suddenly heard someone spoke out. “This brother is a remarkable
drinker. Now that it is raining heavily outside, there is but the two of
us here. Since we had such a fateful meeting, what do you say we drink
Jun Xie raised his head and saw that the customer had already placed down
his bamboo rain hat, revealing a dignified face, showing a prestigious
aura without being angry, his gaze as soft as water as he smiled at Jun
Jun Xie laughed. He reached out, removed the bamboo rain hat on his head,
and left it hanging behind. “The anxious autumn wind and rain brings a
halt to men. For us to be meeting here like this is indeed the work of
fate. Since it is fate, why should we not drink together? Come!”
The other party did not expect Jun Xie to be so young and was momentarily
startled before laughing. “Indeed, observing fate is better than
offering respects.” He then ordered a few more dishes and two jugs of
wine. Holding the wine cup, he came over and sat before Jun Xie. He
smiled and asked. “A magnificent youngster such as you is truly a
rarity in this city. I wonder which great family does this younger
generation hail from?”
“Great family’s younger generation?” Jun Xie gave out a laugh and
replied in disdain. “Floating namelessly through the world, treating
the human world as a game, ask not the gentlemen his name! Could it be
that in this brother’s eyes, only someone from the great families can
possess an outstanding demeanour?”
“Oh? Hehe, this is really a mistake on my part. Then please consider
this cup my punishment!” The middle-aged man raised his cup and gulped
it down, his movements casual and free of care. Observing his face, Jun
Xie had since deduced that this person was no average person. The aura
emitted from his brows were rich and coercive, every move made was
innately elegant, indicating great skill and care. A few spiritual forces
kept probing inside the small shop from the outside, believed to be from
this person’s bodyguards. This person must be someone with a high
position and not easy to meet. To see such an individual admit his own
mistakes towards a random person and even smile as he punished himself,
Jun Xie felt his stance towards this person changing. He felt that
sitting together and drinking wine together with this kind of individual
was not an unworthy act.
“My I ask for younger brother’s esteemed name?” That man gulped
down the wine as he watched Jun Xie. Jun Xie’s aura of indifference
caused this man to become very interested in his identity.
