Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-350
Jun Mo Xie raised his wine cup, and drained it with closed eyes. He
remembered a poem and couldn’t help but sing, “What is today’s death?
It’s tough to fight the battles of life. This is just the plot of the
deceased from the past. The Kings of Hell beheads many a banners!”
Then, there was a “BANG!”… Jun Mo Xie had thrown his cup down. His body
appeared tall and lofty as he sat atop his horse, and declared, “It’s
needless to say that the families of you three-hundred men will be taken
care of by the Jun Family from now. Whether in their old age… or their
marriage… they can count on our family as long as a Jun still lives! I
— Jun Mo Xie — won’t allow a single one of them to be wronged!”
“Many thanks, Young Master Jun! We will return this favor from the Jun
Family in the next life!” The faces of all the three-hundred men were
grateful. They had steeled themselves for the decisive battle. But, not
only because of the lofty and heroic Jun Wu Yi… but because of martial
law as well! Their parents, their children, their wives… their entire
families would suffer from the stigma of their cowardly reputation if
they became scared in face of battle. So, they had to keep their head up.
The situation was extremely difficult, but they simply couldn’t refute.
However, they were afraid of dying in the end. The great and towering
heroes may have met their fates with dignity… and without any
complaints since ancient times. But, they hadn’t necessarily desired to
die. And, it was the same for those ordinary men at this moment.
However, they felt like they were going to die for a “bosom friend” when
they heard Jun Mo Xie speak! They knew that they would die in the
decisive battle ahead. And, they couldn’t help but wonder about their
families in this moment. However, the person they had looked at with the
most dislike had become the source of their comfort. And, his solemn
promise had left them to feel relieved.
What does a man live his life for? For whose sake does he toil and labor
so hard? What does he fight those bloody battles for? He does it for his
parents, wife and children. The thoughts of glory and wealth take a back
seat… especially before a final battle to the death.
The only thing they felt anxious about was the family they were leaving
behind. But, Jun Mo Xie had promised to deal with the issue. They were
unaware that he had made that decision due to the feeling of guilt. But,
they still felt assured.
They would face death with a peaceful mind!
The three-hundred men then took a knee, and drained their cups. Then,
they gave Jun Mo Xie a profound look before they got up to their feet.
They then went their way… without turning… or even looking back.
“This is just the plot of the deceased from the past. The Kings of Hell
beheads many a banners!” Jun Wu Yi laughed and continued, “This is a good
poem. There are indeed countless of my good brothers there!”
Then, he ordered in a low voice, “Move!”
Twenty-thousand cavalry men dismounted, kneeled, and spoke in unison, “We
pay great respects to the commander! May he return safely, and with
“May he return safely, and with glory!” these words made Jun Wu Yi’s body
stiff. But, he didn’t turn to look. The three Dongfang brothers’
bodies were straight as a ramrod as they slowly pushed his wheelchair
Faint sobs could be heard behind them. The twenty-thousand kneeling
soldiers couldn’t get up.
The Southern Heaven City’s war banners fluttered.
A force of four-thousand was silently waiting at the city gates in
formation. Jun Wu Yi was on his wheelchair; he looked tranquil. Whether
he would live or died… was irrelevant. He had already disregarded the
thoughts of his life and death.
Xiao Han and the others also stood in formation. They gave Jun Wu Yi a
meaningful look. Their clever trick had succeeded. So, they looked
complacent at the moment. That thorn in the back wouldn’t be so lucky
that day… no matter what! They needn’t act themselves since this plot
had worked in the coy of the most legitimate excuse. He would now be
forced to go into danger, and wouldn’t return from this road!
Li Jue Tian, Solitary Falcon, Lei Wu Bei, Shi Chang Xiao, Feng Juan Yun
stood not too far from there. Those five men looked into the distant from
their side. Li Teng Yun and the others from every powerful family stood
behind them as spectators of the battle. Each individual had a differed
expression on their face. They obviously had different thoughts going
through their minds.
“Are the odds of today’s battle genuinely unknown?” Feng Juan Yun graced
black clothes, black hair and black scabbard on his body. He stood as
straight as a javelin as he looked at the tranquil Jun Wu Yi who was at
the head of the formation. He felt sorry in his heart. [Such an excellent
man of his generation will die before my eyes, and I still can’t do a
thing to help!]
“There’s no scope of any odds!” Solitary Falcon’s face was gloomy. And,
his eyes had hint of anger that was already teetering on the edge of
fury. He was on the verge of exploding. He had never harbored an iota of
respect for Li Jue Tian. But, his resentment towards that man had reached
a point of extremity at this juncture. That day was the first time that
these two men who had been rivals for half their lives — Solitary
Falcon and Feng Juan Yun — were of the same opinion.
Shi Chang Xiao stood on the side. He also had an expression of
eventuality on his face. Lei Wu Bei stood stoned face. And, Li Jue Tian
stood with his hands behind his back. His expression was tranquil. But,
he was brimming with the arrogance. This showed his belief that only he
reigned unbridled and supreme.
Li Jue Tian regarded himself as impervious; other people’s point of view
didn’t matter to him. [I will decide whether my way of handling things
is brilliant or dishonorable! I will take out anyone who refuses me! Even
if you’re a Great Master of equal fame… it doesn’t matter to me! I’ll
fix you the moment you dare open your mouth! The clenched fist is the
Feng Juan Yun sighed.
He suddenly became determined to become the strongest Great Master. The
man couldn’t understand this strange feeling. But, he was sick of Li
Jue Tian’s conduct. [In what way is his bearing that of the second
strongest man in the world? He’s overbearing when he hides his flaws,
and acts in a tyrannical manner! There isn’t a single good thing about
him… except for his earth-shattering strength!]
Moreover, Feng Juan Yun couldn’t tolerate the collaboration between the
Xue Hun Manor and the Silver Blizzard City in this matter. [How could
they decide to settle personal grudges at such a critical point of time?]
[You are aware that this battle will decide the future interactions
between the Xuan experts of this continent and the Tian Fa forest! Yet…
you’re conspiring at such an important juncture to entrap that man into
leading the troops. Moreover, you’re even rushing to save your own
high-ranking members! Where is your conscience? Where’s your morality?]
[Moreover, Li Jue Tian and the Silver Blizzard City have enough power to
individually retreat to safety if the Xuan Beasts win this war against
the humans. But, the lives of millions of the general public will be in
grave danger if this uprising makes its way to the inland!]
[It will be a huge calamity! This Li Jue Tian and the other Spirit Xuan
experts can’t see it? The Silver Blizzard City may retreat to the top
of the mountains, and distance itself from everything. But, it can’t
hope to stay away from the outside world eternally!]
Feng Juan Yun was a lone and free swordsman. But, his cold exterior hid a
warm heart, and a chivalrous personality. He didn’t indulge in crafty
plots. Nor did he use his strength to bully the weak. Such lowly tricks
and schemes weren’t fit for a hero in his mind. He couldn’t tolerate
them at all.
[What’s the point of being a Great Master if one has such a
temperament? Wouldn’t the name of the Great Masters be blackened if we
lose this war, and this catastrophe travels thousands of miles inland?
How will we shed this infamy off? How will the Great Master rise to fame
“How would I know the odds of life and death in this battle? Oh…. just
let those four-thousand go fight, and risk their lives? What can we do,
right? So, let’s just look at the drama, right?”
Feng Juan Yun sneered and continued, “I came from afar to help in the
fight for the Southern Heaven City! Even the common folk around the world
have lent their strength. And, the Xue Hun Manor has only sent its
henchmen. Why don’t you send me to fight? You have only sent some Sky and
Earth Xuan experts. What’s the use of that?”
He was a proud man, and had already endured a lot. But, he couldn’t
endure it any longer at that point. In fact, this man would’ve spoken
candidly even if he were in front of the Emperor.
“What is the use… I’m afraid that isn’t for you to decide, Feng Juan
Yun. And, my Xue Hun Manor can’t use a high-level expert like yourself
in place of a lackey!”
Li Jue Tian crossed his hands behind his back. He didn’t even turn as
he softly spoke, “Brother Feng can voluntarily leave if he finds this
unpleasant or wrong. And, he’s wholly welcome if he feels that I have
been mistaken, and feels like teaching me a lesson for it!”
“I don’t have the capability to teach Great Master Tian. I know this.”
Feng Juan Yun replied coldly, “I don’t wish to teach you a lesson.” His
meaning had been clearly implied in his words… ‘I will have to go
looking for my teeth if I attacked you.’
“Feng Juan Yun, I respect you as a Great Master! But, you’re still not
happy with what you’ve got! Who do you think you are? Who do you think
this is? Since when did you have the guts to be so unreasonable in front
of my father?” Li Teng Yun stomped his foot, and shouted from behind.
Feng Juan Yun’s expression became as cold as ice.
“Bang!” Li Teng Yun went flying, and somersaulting. His face had swollen.
“You impudent bastard! Are you calling Feng Juan Yun’s name into
question?” Two figures had flitted into action. But, the attack had been
the Solitary Falcon’s doing. He was the only one who could catch up to
Feng Juan Yun’s speed in that gathering.
He had seen Feng Juan Yun’s hand move, and had understood the
discouraging outcome of it. Therefore, he rushed to slap Li Teng Yun
first. In fact, he had already struck Li Teng Yun by the time Feng Juan
Yun’s hand reached the top his sword’s hilt.
Who was Feng Juan Yun? Was he someone Li Teng Yun could insult? Li Teng
Yun was the son of the second Great Master. But, he was like an ant in
Feng Juan Yun’s eyes. Jun Mo Xie would’ve perhaps used an ancient poem
to describe Feng Juan Yun, “Kill a man every ten steps. And, no one will
be left after a thousand miles.”
No one in this world would’ve been able to save Li Teng Yun if Feng
Juan Yun’s hand had reached his sword’s hilt unless the Solitary Falcon
hadn’t moved into action. Even Li Jue Tian couldn’t have helped his own
son! Feng Juan Yun had the strength of a Great Master once he had his
sword in his hand. No other sword could’ve saved Li Teng Yun if he had
Solitary Falcon took action, and taught Li Teng Yun a lesson. He not only
saved the boy’s life in doing so, but he also saved Feng Juan Yun’s
life. After all, Li Jue Tian would’ve chased him around to kill him if
he had killed Li Teng Yun. Then, Feng Juan Yun’s life would’ve ended
The trade would’ve ended with Feng Juan Yun life for Li Teng Yun’s.
But, that lowlife scoundrel wasn’t worth it!
Solitary Falcon and Feng Juan Yun had been fighting each other for
decades, but had slowly recognized each other’s worth over the years.
They had become natural friends as a result; despite the fact that they
were rivals. Therefore, it was only natural for Solitary Falcon to
diffuse the situation in his stead.
The other person who had moved into action was Shi Chang Xiao; contrary
to what everyone would’ve expected. He had thought of the same thing
that the Solitary Falcon had. In fact, he had gone one step further. The
alliance would’ve collapsed if two Great Masters were to start fighting
against each other. It wouldn’t bode well for the mainland’s sake if
the allied forces were to witness an internal strife, and collapse as a
result. It was just that Shi Chang Xiao was a step behind the Solitary
Falcon in terms of speed.
