Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-333
“Yes!” Long Crane answered confidently. Then, he continued, “I’m
absolutely convinced of this. He used his Qi technique on the fourth
brother and me. His special method resulted in the strength in our bodies
to increase by ten times! And, even the bottleneck that had been
constraining us started to loosen. Therefore, we acted like this since he
would help in our advancement. I can assure you that all this is true.
So, you needn’t have any doubts,” Long Crane answered solemnly.
“So… that’s how it is…” The shrouded person mumbled in a faint
voice, “It’s understandable if that’s the case. But, why didn’t you
and Fourth try to capture him? You could’ve been done with everything
if you were to control him. It may be assumed that this person’s
strength is high. But, he won’t be able to contend with Li Jue Tian!
How many experts of such strength do you think exist in this society? You
and Fourth wouldn’t be considered weaker than Li Jue Tian if you were
to combine your attacks! Therefore, the two of you should’ve at least
attempted to capture the man in question!”
Long Crane smiled bitterly, “You think we didn’t wish to, Elder
Brother? We had proposed a competition with this very thought in our mind!
“However, you don’t know how much he pressurized us! The pressure of
his aura was even greater than yours, Elder Brother. Moreover, we will
have the means to promote our strengths if things go well. In fact, we
will have never-ending advancements after this matter ends. And, we can
bid goodbye to the word ‘bottleneck’…
“Fourth and I were forced to step-down with grace after the third match
ended since we were no match for the opposite party…
“You don’t understand the temptation this matter posed for us. Fourth
and I have been stuck at our levels for forty years! We haven’t seen
second brother for many years, but we can’t be sure if he has made
advancement either. He must’ve remained stuck as well! Plus, that
man’s conditions didn’t seem very difficult. We only had to stop the
Xue Hun Manor from going north, and we had to beat-up Li Jue Tian’s son
to a state where he’d have to remain bed-ridden for a couple of months.
How difficult could it really be? Therefore, Fourth and I decided to act
without consulting you.”
“Indeed, this is reasonable… and not very difficult. We can take
advantage of this. But, why has everything turned out like this? We’ve
got over half of the world’s Xuan experts assembled at our gates!” The
shrouded person tilted his body slightly sideways.
“I had originally planned to light a fire at the Xue Hun Manor in the
cover of darkness. I had planned to use that chaos as a cover to attack
Li Teng Yun in order to break his legs. But then… Big Bear…he
suddenly burst into the Xue Hun Manor in bright daylight, and created a
clamor. Then, he began to howl about breaking Li Teng Yun’s legs, and
arrogantly declared to the opposite party that they must take the
initiative and break Li Teng Yun’s legs on their own. Even I wouldn’t
have been to do… so, forget about Li Jue Tian doing such a thing…”
“Third Brother Crane… why did you sell me out?! Did I not intend to
finish the matter quickly? And, how much delay would we have seen if we
followed your plan? Moreover, such a sneaky method isn’t gratifying.
Does it matter how we complete the task as long as we do it…?” Big
Bear’s face reddened as he shouted. He hadn’t finished speaking yet,
but he had started to tremble all over; he didn’t dare to utter a
single word thereafter.
“It’s needless to say that the Xue Hun Manor didn’t comply with Big
Bear’s threat. So, we attacked them very resolutely on the same day. We
had a significant advantage. So, we managed to injure several people.
But, Li Teng Yun remained hidden. So, we returned the next day to do the
same. But, we then found out that the Great Master Shi Chang Xiao had
suddenly appeared at the Xue Hun Manor. And, it was naturally a bit
difficult to maintain our advantage once he was there. So, this continued
for a few days. However, it still wasn’t a problem because the Xue Hun
Manor was more or less destroyed even if Li Teng Yun hadn’t yet showed
his face. But then, we found out that Li Jue Tian… that dog… had also
returned to the Xue Hun Manor out of the blue…” Long Crane squirmed and
pursed his lips.
“You go someone’s doorstep and cause trouble. And then, you ask them to
hand-over their Young Master so you can break his legs? And then…
you’re surprised that they didn’t cooperate? Then, you use your logic
and you get angry… So, you go on a rampage! Then, Li Jue Tian comes and
gets infuriated when he looks at his big Xue Hun Manor — the work of
his lifetime’s blood and sweat — has almost ceased to exist. Which
family would endure to be ashamed by this?”
The man shrouded in black sneered, “Do you two really think nothing of
the people in this world? This is hilarious! First… you didn’t
complete this task in secrecy. Then, you actually went about it so boldly
in broad daylight… And, Big Bear, you really have some big guts. I
genuinely wish to tear up open so I can see just how big your guts are…”
Big Bear stared gaping. Then, he hiccupped and shut his mouth.
“What happened after that?” the black cloaked man asked.
“After that… we attacked again. Then, I found out that Li Jue Tian’s
body had an extremely fluctuating Xuan Beast Core inside it. It seemed
that he had taken a core which was at least at the ninth level. In fact,
the Qi was similar to that of the Panther King’s. But, it didn’t seem
like it was moving to separate away from is body. So, I immediately
started to feel suspicious…
Long Crane’s face flared up with anger. “The Panther King had disappeared
two years ago. Big Bear and I had searched for him for a long time, but
we couldn’t find a single clue. Then, there was the case of the level
nine Xuan Core in the Tian Xiang City. So, we didn’t think much on our
search for a little time. But then, we came here to stir trouble on
orders from that mysterious person… only to find that Li Jue Tian’s
body possessed the fluctuating energy of the Xuan Panther King’s core!”
“The Panther King!” he shrouded man’s voice tensed up. “Was it genuinely
the Panther King? What the hell is going on? Are you sure about what you
Then, his voice became very cold, “I was just thinking that I haven’t
even seen the shadow of the Panther King. So, it seems that someone has
killed and consumed him… even his core has become a part of someone’s
energy… huh… third brother, fourth brother… the two of you have
managed Tian Fa very well in my absence… Panther King is dead… talk
about mysterious disappearances… huh… good… good!”
The complexion on Long Crane and Big Bear’s faces suddenly changed.
They immediately knelt with a “Bang!” and, their foreheads were sweaty
enough to resemble a broth. Their elder brother’s intermitted words and
manner of speech was enough to express his rage. It seemed that these two
brothers were in for a tragedy…
“There used to be ten Beast Kings at the time of our King. They could
overlook the entire world with arrogance. Even the three Holy Lands
didn’t have the courage to look them in the eye! The Tian Fa was the
fiercest force in the entire universe! It was a scene to remember!
However, the King then ascended to the heavens. And, the nine elder
brothers became disheartened and went away to live in seclusion. This
allowed us to rise and advance… and new Beast Kings were born in less
than a century’s time… and a total of twelve at that… So, I thought
that this would at least be enough for us to retain our position even if
we weren’t able to build on it!”
“But, so much has happened in this brief period… The Second Brother —
Eagle King — had been cheated by Yun Bie Chen in a gamble. He was then
forced to become that old man’s mount. This has become a cause of great
shame for our Tian Fa. The youngest brother hasn’t appeared for a long
time. The Sixth Brother — Lion King — and the Seventh Brother —
Monkey King — had fought with the Great Eight Masters sixty years ago.
They lost that battle, the nothing has ever been the same in these past
His voice was desolate. The two Xuan Beast Kings — the white Lion King,
and the golden-haired Monkey King — were standing behind Big Bear. They
hung their heads sadly. These were the two Xuan Beast Kings he had spoken
“The fifth used to manage Tian Fa until thirty years ago… but then…
nine unknown and powerful Spirit Xuan experts besieged and killed our
brother King Beast. Even the location of his core is unknown. That entire
matter is still shrouded in endless mystery. Then, the eleventh —
Panther King — died, and his core is inside Li Jue Tian’s belly…?
Now… only a few of us are left out of the original twelve kings…
crane, bear, snake, tiger and eagle.”
The shrouded man tried hard to restrain his voice as he got angrier,
“This is Tian Fa, right? Tian Fa is fierce, right? Couldn’t you seven
Beast Kings have gone together as brothers to wreak havoc on that
insignificant Xue Hun Manor? Huh…?”
He dispersed Qi around. And, his Qi went away from his body like a bomb
that has just exploded. But, the surrounding Beast Kings didn’t resist
one bit. They didn’t dare to resist, and were sent flying out by the
explosion. In fact, the center of the forest was blown clear for around
ninety kilometers with that blast. The trees were snapped clean from the
ground. And, the air was full of wood-shavings.
That huge area on the ground was completely barren now; not a blade of
grass could be seen growing on it.
The power of the angered Lord of Tian Fa had unexpectedly reached such
“Eldest Brother, you can’t be so angry at such a critical time,” the
seven Xuan beast Kings knelt and implored their Lord.
One could’ve caught a glimpse of the black-cloaked person from
underneath his shroud as he raised his head to the moon and sighed.
“Snake King, Tiger King, Eagle King… you three are at peak level?” the
shrouded person asked. He had apparently calmed down.
A golden-clothed man, a black-clothed man, and a green-garbed young
lady… bowed in unison, “Yes!” These three were also in attendance
beside Long Crane and Big Bear. However, these three were in their human
The White Lion King and the Golden Monkey King were also present there.
However, they had a mixture of admiration and indignation in their eyes.
These two had reached that level and form sixty years ago. But, they had
been reduced to their original forms due to the fight that had happened
sixty years ago. And, no amount of bitter cultivation had helped them
regain their peak form…
“It’s finally time for the breakthrough. But, where on earth will we
find so many of the Tian Fa’s Sacred Fruits…?” the person shrouded in
black sighed. Everyone around him became silent, and the forest became
“There’s no going back now that the war has started! Now, the direr the
situation… the better it is for us! I wish to reinstate Tian Fa’s
place to the foremost in the universe. The three Hold Lands may not
acknowledge that, but I at least wish to ensure that Li Jue Tian and Yun
Bie Chen don’t just dare to stroll into Tian Fa whenever they
“Tian Fa’s prestige will be re-established in this war!” the
black-cloaked person stated in a grave manner, “But, you all must know
the consequences… if we were to lose this war!”
