Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-344
Jun Mo Xie sighed with relief. But, his mouth twisted as he implored. [I
will be able to cross the sixth or seventh layer in three years. But,
I’ve showed a bold face and made claims to finish their task in a time
period of three years…]
“Oh yes, there’s another thing which I had almost forgotten about.” Jun
Mo Xie put his hand behind his back in an eloquent manner, “I heard that
there will be a decisive battle between you and the Southern Heaven City.
Is this the case?”
“Yes. There’s a battle. And, it’s scheduled to take place day after
tomorrow,” Long Crane replied in an even more respectful tone than before.
“Ahem! Tian Xiang City’s Jun Family and the Dugu Family have a somewhat
special relationship with me. I hope that their people don’t get hurt.
It is a matter of honor for me.” Jun Mo Xie had put this sudden request
forth in special manner; it would seem to be a modest request if one were
listening casually. But, one would realize that it was a direct command
if they paid careful attention.
“That won’t be a problem.” Long Crane chuckled, “We had never intended
to deal with them anyway.” He thought for a moment, and took out a green
bottle before he continued, “Sprinkle the powder from this bottle on the
men from these families before they take to the battlefield. We will
surely recognize them if we come across them on the battlefield if this
powder is present on their body. And, we won’t fight back even if they
“Thanks a lot for this.” Jun Mo Xie smiled slightly. He showed neither
happiness nor relief. The Young Master merely maintained a regular, mild,
and easy appearance.
The Xuan Beasts suddenly saw a flourishing spectacle. The shadow of the
mysterious man couldn’t be seen in the sky for a moment. Then, he had
returned to his original position a moment later. The green bottle in
Long Crane’s hand had also disappeared at that exact moment.
[Such a magical move…!]
The Beast Kings had started to admire him even more.
He then considered the two objectives complete, and decided to return.
But, Jun Mo Xie naturally spoke a few words before he left; for he feared
that the Xuan Beasts might think that he’d go back on his word if he
However, he hadn’t gotten far when he thought to himself; [the decisive
battle takes place day after tomorrow. That’s still a while away. But,
I’ve stumbled upon this Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand Poisons Fruit
here. How surprising! How many other miraculous treasures might I find in
this place for ingredients? How could this Young Master forget the main
reason he came to this place?]
An unbearable itch overtook his heart as this thought came to his mind.
He initiated the Yin-Yang escape. His body flashed, and he leapt deeper
into the forest.
Within the forest…
“Third Elder Brother, Fourth Elder Brother, quickly tell me who that
mysterious man is. And, how are you two so familiar with him? You vouched
our Tian Fa to him without even batting an eyelid. And, you even
guaranteed out our treasure…?”
The Snake King Green Hunter asked in a doubtful tone, “I understand that
this person’s power is unknown, and he’s far more powerful than us.
But, I wish to know why you were so eager in his presence? Could it be
that you have that much faith in him? This fruit was the jewel of our
forest… we had labored for over three-hundred years to procure this
Everyone else also looked at Long Crane and Big Bear after they heard
this. Their heads were muddled to be honest. The Young Master Jun’s
alter-ego had displayed a tremendous strength. It could even be said that
he was the strongest in the whole world. But, he was no threat to Tian
Fa. Long Crane and Big Bear had talked about him before as well. However,
the Xuan Beast Kings wouldn’t have cowered and given way… even if Jun
Mo Xie was difficult to deal with, and could kill each one of the Beast
Long Crane and Big Bear had a proud look on their faces. After all, their
relation with this unrivalled master had provided their siblings a means
to advance without any dangers of a backlash. Therefore, they had
effectively done a great service to their Tian Fa.
All of them could advance. That too without any worries or fears!
Therefore, their eyes were already full of the boundless prospects of the
[Something this good has never happened in the Tian Fa forest!]
[This event will create history!]
The two joyfully opened their mouth in order to show-off and speak a few
words to display their superior personality. [Won’t having such a wide
circle of friends mean having superior personality?] But, they
immediately shut their mouths after they opened them since they were
struck by a realization…
[Yes ah! Who knows who this mysterious person is?] The two elder brothers
of the Xuan Beast Kings only knew him as Feng Qing Yang. But, little did
they know that this name wasn’t real. As for who this person was… or
where he lived and how he behaved…? These two didn’t know what to say
about any of that. In fact, the two Xuan Beast Kings hadn’t discovered
this most critical problem until this moment…
[The two of us have trusted someone we know nothing about with such a big
[We were both so eager… and we did as was ordered!]
[But, how will us two brothers find him for getting the dans which will
help everyone advance if we get no news and if there isn’t any
communication from him after three years…?]
[Consuming the sacred fruit did have a huge risk. One could explode from
doing so. But, it’s a sure method to increase one’s strength! The
no-risk and absolutely safe method did seem attractive, but it’s only
like a bread drawn on paper at present. It won’t mean anything if we
didn’t get to eat it. I don’t know how we’ll find him if this deal
They didn’t know what to do after they thought it through clearly. The
two Xuan Beast Kings looked at each other; they were at a loss as to what
they could do…
The two had been caught unprepared.
The rest of the Xuan Beast Kings looked to the two for answers. But, the
two weren’t making things clear. In fact, the others could also see
that their complexion wasn’t good. So, they nervously asked, “What’s
the matter Third Brother, Fourth Brother? Why don’t you speak? Why are
you keeping these things hidden from your younger siblings…!?”
[Why? You think we wipe his uncle’s…? You’re asking us for answers,
but who do we ask?]
[Damn! He won’t betray us brothers, right?] The thoughts of both the
brothers were getting increasingly muddled at that point.
Long Crane was depressed. He couldn’t help but flip his eyeballs as he
spoke-up, “Your anxiety isn’t worth a fart! That man is a top-class
expert with amazing cultivation. He may even be regarded as the strongest
master ever born! Why would he diminish his reputation for a matter as
trivial as taking away the sacred fruit from us? Anyway, do you think we
could’ve resisted if he had wanted to take it from us by force? You
need to be patient if you want this benefit. Why are you in a rush? That
master said that he’ll finish our assignment in the next three years?
What’s three years for us Beast Kings? We can sleep for a period longer
than that! Now, why don’t you guys start acting like Beast Kings again?
Go about your own business! We have a battle upcoming in two days’
Big Bear hastily cut-in, “Exactly! Looking at your morose appearance is a
pain in the ass! Hurry up and get lost! What are you waiting for? Just
go! Raise your spirits! Not many enemies will be able to match you in the
The other Xuan Beast Kings felt discontent and unhappy. They cursed in
the secrecy of their hearts; [you looked morose yourself! You think you
are the only ones who are allowed to feel that way? How can we not feel
bad, huh?] Though, they could do nothing else after they looked at the
serious expressions on their two brothers’ faces. They then scattered,
and went away. But, the prospect of that beautiful dream continued to
linger in their hearts. [Ah, we’ll make a safe and seamless
breakthrough in three years!]
Long Crane had spoken the truth. Three years was nothing to these Xuan
Beast Kings; it was a very short period of time in their eyes. They had
extremely long life-spans. They weren’t immortal. But, their lives were
tenfold longer than those of an ordinary person. Perhaps much more than
[Three years’ wait for advancement and longer life…! This is very
profitable. It was like heavenly meat had fallen from the sky. Sure,
there are some doubts, but this mysterious expert deserves complete
trust. Moreover, he had displayed his amazing cultivation. Moreover,
everyone experienced a ‘ten year leap’ in their cultivation by merely
taking those dans of his’. Forget about eating or even seeing such a
magical thing… no one has even heard of something like this before!]
[Those dans have increased our cultivation by ten years. That’s simply
against the natural order of things! Could anything be impossible for
this mysterious man?]
Therefore, it was only natural that Long Crane and Big Bear didn’t have
any misgivings regarding the mysterious person. Moreover, Jun Mo Xie had
never intended to renege on this deal either.
This was a chanced-upon opportunity for him, and would be good for him as
well. Wouldn’t they owe him a big favor if they all managed to advance
through their bottlenecks safely? [Wouldn’t that mean that I would
acquire many powerful thugs for free?]
[Moreover, each one of them would be an apex-level warrior! Ah…]
The Young Master Jun felt free of worry… and pleasant with that
treasure in his hand. His entire journey forward had been pleasant and
full of surprises since he had left the Xuan Beast Kings…
[This Tian Fa forest isn’t a fu*king treasure in name only! This has
gotten me very excited! I couldn’t find any of these ingredients in
Tian Xiang City. My efforts failed even when I had searched the entire
place so painstakingly, and had exerted the entirety of my strength. But,
I can find everything here en mass! No ingredient is rare here. I can
find anything I want… as long as I look for it seriously. And, they
aren’t present in a small number either… their quantity here is huge!]
[And, it looks like no one has ever collected any of them!]
[This is great! This is really great!]
[There are so many ingredients for the Peak Level Nine Xuan Dans! Like
Tri-Colored Spirit Mushroom, Heavenly Star Grass, Level Nine Xuan Root.
I’ve already stumbled upon these three herbs. They are few of the
rarest herbs of the age, and can’t be easily found. In fact, I’ve
actually found some Heavenly Star Grass! This is only second to the
Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand Poisons Fruit! And, such a legendary
grade medicine actually exists here in abundance!]
This had come as a huge surprise to him! He had seemingly got the
Jun Mo Xie felt warm inside. He continued to use the Yin Yang Escape as
he went deeper into the forest. He saw many rare ingredients, and stored
all of them inside the Hong Jun Pagoda. But, he hadn’t gone very far
when he started to feel that something was off…!
This was because there were no traces of any Xuan Beasts in the area that
lay in front of him. There were no birds in the sky. And, the ground was
so clean that not an ant could be seen crawling on it. What was really
unreasonable was that he couldn’t even feel half an earthworm inside
[This place is too silent and desolate!]
[Don’t tell me that there’s another Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand
Poisons Fruit here?!]
Jun Mo Xie looked around at the flowers and trees. They were all lush. He
circulated the Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune, and breathed the
air in. It was fresh, and there was no hint of poison in it. Moreover,
there was a spiritual influence at play there. And, it was surprisingly
[This area is so vibrant. But, why isn’t there a single trace of any
[This is extremely strange!]
Jun Mo Xie carefully drifted forward a bit, and then walked inside. The
trees and the flowers got increasingly lush. But, there was no sound of
activity… same as before. The air too got increasingly fresh and
Jun Mo Xie finally stopped the Yin Yang Escape, and showed himself in the
woods. He looked around as he walked forward, and then inhaled a
lung-full of the comfortable air. There were bright purple and red colors
all around him. It was late autumn. But, everything still seemed very
lush in this vicinity. This place was seemingly unaffected by the
seasons. The vegetation was still extremely lush…
It was extremely quite there. Then, Jun Mo Xie suddenly felt a subtle
sensation. It was like his mind had grown fickle and impatient in this
world. Everything had become quiet in the blink of an eye.
Everything was so quiet that it made one revel in the past. It made
one’s mind feel at ease, and made them feel like their souls had been
The ground Jun Mo Xie had just stepped-on had a silky feel to it… like
the grass of a meadow. It rustled softly as he moved forward. He felt
like he was walking in dreamland. The myriads of problems that had
clogged his mind disappeared, and he felt his mind going empty… like he
Jun Mo Xie walked as if he was unconscious. He then involuntarily walked
over to a lone tree, and sat down beneath it. And, he did this with
extremely gentle movements; as if he was afraid that making any noise
would ruin the tranquility of his mind.
The young man remained seated very calmly. There was perplexity in his
eyes as he bought a hand to his chin while he looked ahead. He couldn’t
see properly. It seemed as if the area was covered in mist… or he was
Hostilities had filled his soul for a long time. But, some of it had
seemingly started to slip away from his body via a drip. He then had a
mysterious feeling. Then, he felt disappointment… as if a butcher had
laid down his knife. The Young Master then felt aloof… like he had
transformed into a Buddha-like state of mind…
A small blossom revolved as it floated down from the tree. It silently
fell down on his shoulders, but he didn’t become aware of it because of
the flurry he was in. There was a light breeze. And, the hair at the edge
of his hairline started to sway gently…
It seemed like centuries had already passed. But, it also felt like all
of this had happened in a brief moment…
“The flower bud swiftly falls on the lone man.” Jun Mo Xie sighed
slightly, and raised his head. He then shaded his eyes to look ahead at
the picturesque scenery. He took a deep breath, “This is so beautiful
that even a blood-soaked killer like me feels elated and detached in its
Jun Mo Xie reluctantly looked around at the surroundings. His mind opened
up. He chuckled and spoke-up in self-mockery, “Staying in this serenity
for merely one day can be life’s greatest pleasure. But, such an
elegant paradise isn’t suitable for a killer like me.”
His figure then floated up without touching the moist and soft grass
underneath. Jun Mo Xie relished the soft breeze for a bit, and then
suddenly rushed forward.
There was thick growth of trees ahead. In fact, there was no gap between
them. They were maybe hundreds… or perhaps thousands of years old from
the looks of it. They crowded together with no gap between two trees. In
fact, it seemed as if they were growing on the same place. They were
seemingly fencing something from the surrounding area, and had
effectively formed an enclosure…
“How can someone reside in such a place?” Hit-man Jun was curious. But,
he possessed the caution of an assassin. So, he initiated the Yin-Yang
Escape, and entered it as light as a feather.
“My Heavens! What a beautiful place!” there was a small valley within
those closely packed trees! There were no constructions in it, but it
still had some natural and muddy hovels within. It seemed as if this
place had been made by the heavens. In fact, this place was extremely
shocking and amazing!
A burst of faint and wonderful scent was coming from flowers hidden at a
distance. This scent hit Jun Mo Xie’s nose, and he couldn’t help but
eagerly stretch his neck to breathe it in. He suddenly felt a burst of
extreme comfort, and his spirits rose up. He followed the scent, and
hadn’t gone far when he saw something. It made him want to shout out,
and he eventually had to cover his mouth with his hand…
There was a massive and solid tree in front of him. It grew on gravel.
However, the gravel was exuding three bright colors — gold, red and
white. These three colors glittered so splendidly that they took Jun Mo
Xie’s breath away.
It appeared that the treasure — the Tri-Colored mushroom — grew
there. Moreover, there weren’t just seven or eight of them under that
tree’s trunk… several grew in every nook and cranny; they were
practically growing there as if they were cabbage in a farm. And, one
could also find many other rare herbs there…
[I’m not dreaming, right?]
Jun Mo Xie was suddenly overcome with a great sense of happiness. He had
coveted this mushroom for a long time. He could rise to the third level,
and refine the Cleansed Marrow Dan. He hadn’t even found ten
ingredients in Tiang Xiang City… despite his thorough search. But, he
had collected even higher-level ingredients in merely one night’s time
after he had set foot inside this forest. Moreover… he had collected
them en mass!
Jun Mo Xie was very depressed some time ago. He could’ve made a
breakthrough. But, he didn’t have the medicine which could supplement
it. This had given him a huge headache. He had never thought that these
things would line-up like ‘cabbage in a farm’ after he’d arrive at
Tian Fa. But then, he had found this unfathomable and mysterious place!
[This is indeed inexplicably amazing! It’s unknown how many rare and
amazing treasures one could find in this vast Tian Fa Forest. This would
tantamount to immense strength in the future!]
Jun Mo Xie went wild with joy and stepped forward. He then started to
pluck those herbs as quickly as he could. The Young Master Jun picked a
great number of them. But, he hesitated once only the last two trunks of
that tree remained laden with this treasure. And, he eventually decided
against it. [You can’t make a living from hunting if you burn the
forest! Too much of anything isn’t a good thing either!] Jun Mo Xie
wouldn’t show a moment’s hesitation when it came to destroying
something right down to its root cause. However, the Young Master Jun
inadvertently found himself abiding to ‘appropriate behavior’ inside
this heavenly abode.
[Too much of anything is never a satisfactory thing either!]
Jun Mo Xie looked around, and was amazed to discover that a natural
‘cultivation base’ was somewhat concealed in the embrace of that
tree. And, one could actually find every kind of precious ingredient in
[Is this the source of that spiritual influence?]
Jun Mo Xie felt apprehensive, and looked around with greater care.
One would find a cave if they took a detour from the trees. But, there
were trees which leaned forward to cover the entrance of the cave. In
fact, he was convinced that even wind and rain wouldn’t be able to
affect the area inside this cave. [This cave must be unusually dry!]
Then, the Young Master Jun heard an extremely faint sound from the mouth
of the cave. [Don’t tell me… someone actually lives here? But, my
spirit sense had detected no abnormality in this area…?] Jun Mo Xie
suddenly became alert. He quickly initiated the Yin Yang Escape, and
floated inside the cave in a state of invisibility…
He went forward, and took a look inside the cave. His mouth immediately
opened a round “O” with astonishment.
Something he could’ve never anticipated had appeared before his eyes.
He had thought that this place was extremely secretive. He had
anticipated that even a bird wouldn’t be able to come here. So, he had
naturally assumed that this place would be the abode of some big boss!
Or… that it was at least an abode of a Xuan Beast King in human form…
Only that kind of talent and strength would deserve such an environment.
However, what appeared in front of him was a bare room made-up of cold
stone. In fact, there wasn’t even a bed inside it. It was only worthy
of being called a ‘dump’. There was a black gown on the center of the
floor. It laid there like discarded trash. In fact, it couldn’t even be
called a ‘black gown’ from Jun Mo Xie’s standards. That thing was
more like a massive piece of black cloth. He felt that even an elephant
would look slender in that “gown.” And, as far as a human was
concerned… that cloth would cover any human in their entirety… even
if the cloth had been folded a few times…
The black cloth had a small blood stain on it. It was unknown where it
had picked that stain from. A barely-alive and tiny white animal was
laying on top of that black cloth. Jun Mo Xie shot a quick glance towards
this animal. That animal almost looked like Little White at first sight…
However, he looked more carefully, and realized that this little creature
wasn’t Little White. The beast in front of him was half the size of a
person’s arm. Its body was entirely white, and had no fur anywhere.
But, that white creature gave-off a very comfortable feeling, and looked
very elegant as well…
The frail thing looked at Jun Mo Xie as he appeared in front of it.
However, its eyes didn’t display a single trace of fear. It merely
turned to look at him with eyes that were filled with tranquility,
clarity, and even an indescribable sense of arrogance…
Then, the tiny creature seemed to have resigned to something, and lowered
its head. It had suddenly gone so quiet that it seemed as if life and
death had no meaning in its eyes anymore. However, that small body was
curled-up so helplessly in that black gown that the sight of it could
evoke a strong feeling of tenderness in one’s heart.
Jun Mo Xie held nothing against animals. But, his temperament had never
been of a man who’d be fond of pets. He didn’t exactly like or
dislike Little White. But, he suddenly felt a strong urge to protect the
little creature that lay in front of him.
And, it was a fantastic feeling…
“Poor thing, are you hurt?” Jun Mo Xie asked in a rare gentle voice as he
softly sat down while looking at the tiny beast.
The little thing lowered its head indifferently. It seemed uninterested.
It wasn’t clear whether it couldn’t understand the words the Young
Master Jun had spoken… or had simply ignored them from the start…
Jun Mo Xie saw this creature’s lazy and adorable mannerism, and
suddenly recalled why Dugu Xiao Yi had come to Tian Fa. She wanted to
hunt a Snow-Ferret. She then wanted to use its skin to make a garment her
grandfather could wear on his wounded waist.
That small creature looked like the legendary and thunderous Xuan Beast
— Snow Ferret — from the looks of it.
However, Jun Mo Xie couldn’t detect even the faintest trace of a Xuan
Beast-like aura from it… despite a careful inspection. Therefore, it
obviously wasn’t a Level Eight Snow Ferret… or anyone from its genus.
In fact, it might not even be a Xuan Beast to start with!
[Could it really be an ordinary tiny Ferret? But, why does it look so
Then, Jun Mo Xie slowly extended his hand, and touched the little
creature lightly. However, the creature still hung its head low… same
as before. The creature was motionless, but its body had become stiff.
“I know you’re scared, little thing!” Jun Mo Xie smiled, “Don’t
worry; I’m a good man… a very good man. Come, amusing little thing…
I will see to your wound. I will give you a tasty medicine!”
A good man…? This was the first time that Jun Mo Xie had called himself
a ‘good man’ in the combined time frame of his two lives so far…
However, he was truly a good man in this little white creature’s eyes…
He circled his aura around the little creature he now held in his arms,
and inspected it for a bit…
However, there was something Jun Mo Xie hadn’t come to notice. He had
held the creature for barely a second when its ears had become erect. It
had then opened its eyes in a wide stare. In fact, a sharp glint had
arisen from the depths of its eyes. But, it then sensed the wonderful Qi
that was coming from the Young Master Jun’s body. It had then stared
blankly for a second. In fact, it looked extremely confused at first.
But, it slowly closed its eyes shut soon after…
