Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-337
Jun Mo Xie was shocked. In fact, he was dripping with sweat. [Solitary
Falcon is too fearless! I hadn’t anticipated that this man would be
capable of something like this!]
[Tian Fa can even track a rat’s movements within its territory in this
time of war. So, how can a team infiltrate with utmost stealth?]
[Let’s suppose we do adopt Solitary Falcon’s plan, and a team
infiltrates Tian Fa in secrecy. They would certainly be surrounded by the
enemy forces… And then, the enemy will use their superior strength to
annihilate that team in its entirety! This outcome is an absolute given.]
[To die is to die… but this team would basically be killing themselves
if we take this course of action…]
Jun Mo Xie had come to realize that he had been too conservative in
estimating Solitary Falcon’s IQ; he had overestimated it by too great a
margin. It seemed that this man’s head had become like a gourd after
training every day with the Snowy Mountain Eagles. So, his intelligence
had come to resemble that of the eagles by now…
“There has been no gain today…” Jun Wu Yi sighed, “Tian Fa has declared
war. It has given us a preparation time of three days before it initiates
a full-scale decisive battle. And, we’re still considering the
“Speaking of the candidates for commander-in-chief — your Third Uncle
is quite popular.” Dongfang Wen Qing snorted coldly. He then continued in
an angry manner, “The Silver Blizzard City immediately recommended him.
They then vigorously praised the abilities of the Blood General. Then,
the Xue Hun Manor’s Young Master — Li Teng Yun — also got up and
recommended him… It was almost decided on the spot! Those shameless
bastards! They’re trying to kill with a borrowed knife! They want to
use your Third Uncle’s popularity to endanger his life!”
Jun Mo Xie rolled his eyes, “What are your thoughts about this topic
Jun Wu Yi raised his eyebrows, “We’ve come here to settle this matter.
So, how does it matter if these people aim to ‘kill with a borrowed
knife’? This Xuan Beast Uprising is a threat to the entire mainland.
So, it must be contained and stopped. Moreover, the upcoming decisive
battle is ‘key’ to all of it! Great men don’t do things out of
convenience! Someone else will take my place if I don’t step-up!
Moreover, it’s not inevitable that I’ll die if take-up this post…”
“Huh…? You mean you accepted it?” Jun Mo Xie stood up, and asked
cautiously after he had taken two steps.

“I sure did.” Jun Wu Yi replied calmly, “Only I could’ve been
nominated; there’s no one else. And, the prestige of the Jun Family
would’ve been hit hard if I were to fear for my life in such a
situation and turn the offer to lead this war down. In fact, our
family’s prestige would’ve dropped to a freezing point! All the glory
and honor of the past — which your grandfather, father, Second Uncle
and your two elder brothers earned for the Jun Family — would’ve been
washed away. And, I would’ve ruined it if I were to covet my life and
fear death like this! Therefore… I am duty bound to not retreat even if
I may die! A great man earns his name for a reason!”
“They called your name since they were aware that you wouldn’t say no;
there was no other reason except this one alone. They were well-aware
that you won’t back down!” Dongfang Wen Qing groaned, “You know that
it’s nothing but a trap. And yet, you’re still ready to jump into it?
Is this what you call a ‘great man’? This is nothing but a fool’s
“Then, I will die without regrets!” Jun Wu Yi’s expression was cold,
“The Jun Family’s reputation is everything as far as I’m concerned! I
don’t matter in front of it! And, I will never allow our family’s
reputation to fall!”
“Idiot!” Dingfang Wen Qing scolded sharply, “You going to war is just a
meaningless sacrifice on your part; nothing more!”
“Real men have to shoulder their responsibilities. And, the Jun
Family’s reputation is my responsibility!”
Jun Wu Yi frowned. But, he had a determined expression on his face, “The
Jun Family will never fall. Father and Mo Xie will still be there… even
if I’m gone. So, the Jun Family will never fall! And now, I will step
forward for my family as a ‘Jun’. Anyway, I’m not doing this
because I wish to fall into the trap… or to come across as a hero —
This is only for my Jun Family’s prestige! The Jun Family will never
fear the enemy or act cowardly!”
Dongfang Wen Qing trembled angrily from head to toe. He stamped his foot
and cursed, “I’ve never seen anyone so brain-dead in my entire life!
You say something Mo Xie!”
“I haven’t crowned my hair in ten years. And, every night I look at the
moon and hope to come to Tian Xiang… but I know that the life doesn’t
go in reverse!” Jun Mo Xie chanted loudly. He suddenly raised his head,
and spoke in a sinking voice, “You’ll do it in spite of this, Third
Uncle? This matter of prestige is alien to me — I don’t care about
it! And, I’m sure that even grandfather is the same! Your life is more
important for us! Also, don’t forget that there’s someone who awaits
you on that snowy mountain. She has already waited for ten years because
of her feelings. And, she’ll continue to wait…”
Jun Wu Yi’s body started to tremble violently, and his face convulsed
with pain. His expression became dark in a split second. Then, he tilted
his head, and his cheek vanished in the darkness left by the flickering
candle. The man then spoke-up in agony, “It’s not about prestige alone.
The battlefield has taken millions of corpses since ancient times. Which
one of them didn’t have aged parents? Who didn’t have a lovely young
wife? Am I — Jun Wu Yi — special? Am I treasured gold? Isn’t this
enough of a reason?”
“I’ve made my decision. Elder Brothers, the three of you need not urge
Mo Xie. Anyway, I’m convinced that my being the commander-in-chief will
have a huge effect. I can at least do better than those good-for-nothing
stubborn people,” Jun Wu Yi smiled strenuously.

“It’s okay if you’re going to fight. But, is it necessary that it’s
just you alone? Can’t others go to fight as well?”
Jun Mo Xie rolled his eyes, “How can you lead the ordinary troops and
clash with this enemy head-on? It would be considered suicide if you were
only to lead ordinary troops. But, many of the powerful families have
sent their people to Tian Fa. And, you will need several thousand elite
troops for this battle. Moreover, several of them would need to be at
Earth Xuan level, and thousands will need to be at Jade Xuan if you wish
to win. How do we find so many of such warriors in the ranks of ordinary
troops…? So, you must ask them for these elite soldiers as well. In
fact, you must even force the Xue Hun Manor and the Silver Blizzard City
to dispatch their elites in the troops you’ll lead to the battle…”
“Huh? What do you mean?” A bright light flashed in Jun Wu Yi’s eyes.
“We can also kill with a borrowed knife!”
Jun Mo Xie’s white teeth became visible as he flashed a faint smile.
And, they started to glitter in the flickering light of the candle. In
fact, he looked like a man-eating beast as he put his hand down, and
ferociously said, “This conspiracy to kill you will come with a heavy
price. They want us to be finished?! But then, every powerful faction
will meet their end with us! Who else wants to leave this world? Who
dares to mess with my Jun Family?! How can we allow their plans to work
so smoothly? Their fate will accompany ours if we lose even a single drop
“And, here is where you should be taking the advantage, Uncle! You should
reply on your position in this matter!” Jun Mo Xie’s eyes narrowed as a
murderous aura surged out from his body, “They plan to send our Jun
Family to its funeral, but they shall make their own preparations for the
time we emerge victorious in this plot!”
“It seems like we’ll be throwing away our lives if we agree to this.
So, we must have others to die alongside us! These Xuan experts want you
to die by sending you to lead only ordinary soldiers. So, we will keep
that as our condition! And, we won’t agree to do anything if they
don’t agree to this demand. Because… that will be a blatant
entrapment! And, why should we go to hell when they won’t? How come
their lives are more precious than ours? And if they do agree, then… he
he… who knows who will die…”
Jun Mo Xie gave a cold laugh and said, “Rest assured, Uncle… it’ll be
alright.” Then, he turned and left.
The three Dongfang brothers glanced at Jun Wu Yi, and walked out as well.
“Your Third Uncle has… the heart of a man who desires to die.” Dongfang
Wen Qing looked at the full moon, and took a deep breath. And, the sharp
smell and aura of the forest entered into his nostrils.

“If only I had known earlier…” Jun Mo Xie said gloomily, “His heart has
been showing signs of depression for a while now. If grandfather wasn’t
that old… or I hadn’t been such a waste in my early days… then,
Third Uncle would’ve perhaps… He had been suffering from that loss
for so many years. Anyone else would’ve killed themselves numerous
times by now…And now, you have arrived. That tantamount to protection
for me… in fact, it’s equal to me getting a tyrannical patron. So,
Third Uncle… perhaps can’t bear it anymore…”
“That’s also true…” the three brothers sighed as they spoke, “It’s
hard to guess the blow that matter must’ve dealt to your Third Uncle.
Didn’t he always have pride as a ‘great man’? We would’ve gone
mad long back if we were in his place. Yet, your Third Uncle has been
suffering that torture for over ten years now!”
“This ordeal of his’ won’t last long — I’ve decided it!” Jun Mo
Xie had gone silent for a while before he softly came to speak these
words. The other three suddenly raised their heads to look at him. And,
their eyes were full of amazement.
[He would have to face the Silver Blizzard City if wants to erase Jun Wu
Yi’s suffering. Does he think it’s easy?]
“I’m going to sleep. I’m really tired,” Jun Mo Xie spoke those few
words, turned, and then walked away.
[What?] The uncles were shocked. They felt as if their heads would
explode from the confusion. [We were discussing such a grave topic… and
yet, this brat says that he wants to sleep? That… he’s tired?
Doesn’t he know that the Jun Family is at the edge of ruin at this
“How is this brat so heartless?!” They shook their heads in unison, and
Jun Mo Xie blew out the lamp. He then thought of a move. Then, he
disappeared from the tent; he appeared like an illusion as he quickly
moved towards Tian Fa.
He was suddenly outside the Southern Heaven City. Jun Mo Xie then felt at
ease, and initiated his Yin Yang Escape at its full force. His body
seemed like a meteor as his incorporeal shadow moved onwards.
[It’s obvious that Third Uncle is determined to participate in this
battle.] Jun Mo Xie settled his thoughts. [I must find Long Crane and Big
Bear… and, as fast as I can. It will turn out to be a case of an
‘accidental friendly-fire’ if those two bastards dared to attack
Third Uncle’s regiment since they’ll unknowingly end-up attacking the
people who are on their own side!]

[And anyway… you people think that I can’t kill with a borrowed
knife? I’m much more adept at this kind of game than you are!]
Jun Mo Xie obviously couldn’t act as himself at that time; nor could he
show his real face. So, he would have to change his identity into that of
the ‘Mysterious and Skillful’ expert. And, he felt quite happy about
this; [it’s not going to be easy… even when this skillful expert gets
involved. It seems that I will have to work very hard and very
ferociously once again.]
Jun Mo Xie felt like a dragon at sea… or a tiger in the forest the
moment he entered Tian Fa. In fact, he had crossed around twenty-five
kilometers in a single moment.
It was extremely relaxing for him. And, very easy!
Whether it was his outer body or inner soul — everything felt extremely
relaxed. And, this relaxed and extremely satisfied feeling started to
increase his fondness for the Tian Fa forest.
This was the most dangerous and cruel place in the entire Xuan Xuan
Continent as per the common legends. However, this territory was still
giving a sense of comfort to Jun Mo Xie’s heart!
