Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-372
“Ah… this is great!” Jun Mo Xie took a deep breath as he muttered. He
was brimming with energy. He summersaulted and roared loudly in an
unrestrained manner to give vent to his excitement. Then, he steadied his
excited state of mind, and operated the Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s
One must vent their feelings of joy or sadness since it would only affect
their meridians if one forces them down, and pressures oneself to
stabilize one’s mind. And, this would in-turn mean that one would
overreach themselves, and their condition would turn for the worse as a
However, Jun Mo Xie was very clear about this. He was anxious about the
extent of his present advancements. But, he didn’t operate the Art of
Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune in a hurry to examine himself. Instead,
he first dealt with the issue just mentioned. And, the Young Master Jun
acted in a crazed manner, and gave vent to his excitement as much as he
The physiological condition of the body wouldn’t come into effect since
there would be a sense of “I’ve already vented” to provide a subtle
mental nudge once a person unburdens themselves. And, this would greatly
reduce the chance of a devil’s bite during the practice.
[What problems will I have if I dispel the chance of a devil’s bite?]
Therefore, Jun Mo Xie’s practice proceeded without a hitch. And, the
entirety his aura cycled within his body at extreme speeds. Then, Jun Mo
Xie started to inspect his own internal state of affairs. And, his jaw
dropped once again!
“Fu*k Fu*k Fu*k…” a succession of cuss words exploded from his mouth.
Jun Mo Xie didn’t know what else to do or say. His mind was a confused
mess, and only those extremely vulgar words were left in it.
“Truly… Ah!” he shouted fiercely at first. And then, he extended his
hands, and started to beat his chest. Jun Mo Xie’s actions made him
seem like a black bear that was showing-off his strength. It could be
said that the Young Master Jun was ecstatic to the extreme.
No one could see what was inside the Hong Jun Pagoda in any case. And, no
one would also know that the Young Master Jun had been completely
cleansed from the inside. Moreover, he didn’t have a thread of clothing
upon his body. The Young Master’s body had originally been covered in
clothing. But, he had torn his clothes to shreds when he was going
through that pain and suffering.
The Young Master Jun was thoroughly shocked!
It was because he had found a clear and thin essence flowing inside his
meridians. And, this substance looked very similar to mercury. In fact,
that matter seemed to have a somewhat flickering shine to it, and it was
obvious that it contained a huge amount of power!
His aura had been invisible, and had exhibited no particular character as
it had flowed into the first level. And, the aura and spiritual essence
had taken on a somewhat misty appearance inside the Hong Jun Pagoda’s
second level because of the Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune.
However, that spiritual essence and aura had disappeared, and this
mysterious substance had appeared shortly after. Therefore, it was
obvious that his spiritual essence had transformed. Moreover, this
indicated that his essence had remained the same in quantity, but had
undergone a qualitative change.
This obviously meant that his Xuan efficacy had undergone a substantial
change. And, that slender and silvery thread declared that Jun Mo Xie had
set foot in the third level of Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune!
This meant that he would see another breakthrough at last!
Jun Mo Xie got a hold of himself, and concentrated as he started to cycle
his Xuan efficacy over his body again. The speed became increasingly
fast, and the thin silver string started to make a noisy sound. It seemed
to be vibrating since it was giving-off a buzzing noise…
First cycle… second cycle… and then, he was at the peak of the second
level. Jun Mo Xie proceeded further, and he clearly felt that the layers
ahead were becoming as frail as paper. He felt that he would only need to
exert himself a bit, and he would get through…
And, it would be an entirely new realm when the time would come!
Jun Mo Xie slowly breathed in and out as he stabilized his mental state.
And then, he gently increased the speed as he impacted the bottleneck.
He didn’t wish to congeal his full strength and break through because
he believed that success would only come under the right conditions. And,
that moment had presented itself since the conditions were ripe. So,
trying to be too fast wouldn’t be good. Therefore, Jun Mo Xie didn’t
feel anxious. Moreover, he didn’t dare to take the risks again.
Who knew what harmful side-effects may be unleashed if he broke through
by force? Perhaps there would be a violent and harmful devil’s bite…
like he had seen in the case of the Flame of Primal Chaos…
It had to be said that the devil’s bite from the Flame of Primal Chaos
had made Jun Mo Xie very cautious…
Jun Mo Xie eventually started to feel that the gate to the next level was
being pushed back due to the impact of his strength. After that, it
became a bit thinner, and eventually became transparent…
A very faint sighing-like sound arose. And, a very small opening appeared
at the gate to the third level. It seemed like a balloon had come into
contact with a very small needle, but… it finally burst.
Jun Mo Xie still didn’t advance at a rapid pace. He pushed forward
slowly as he gently poured-in his aura, and cautiously proceeded forward.
Jun Mo Xie felt the explosive sound inside his mind, and felt like the
world had turned upside down. He felt the entire Hong Jun Pagoda revolve
for a moment. The Furnace of Good Fortune flickered on his left at one
time, and then on his right. And then, he found that it was place above
his head. The steadily burning Flame of Primal Chaos also moved about…
Jun Mo Xie remained unmoved by this. And, he stabilized his mind once
again as he moved forward in a firm manner.
And then, at last…
There was an unexpected impact of a massive force. This force was
extremely powerful, and had crossed Jun Mo Xie’s expectations by-far!
Jun Mo Xie felt that his meridians had suddenly swollen. And then, an
illusionary image appeared in front of him without any warning…
The illusionary image slowly floated downwards, and became stable as it
got down. Then, it turned into a real doorway!
Jun Mo Xie stood in front of that doorway.
He felt that the spiritual influence within his body could shake
mountains and call tsunamis with a cheerful voice. Jun Mo Xie’s heart
was very moved after he examined his spiritual influence.
Then, he finally initiated the Third Layer of the Art of Unlocking the
And, he opened the third level of the Hong Jun Pagoda after that!
Jun Mo Xie smiled as he recalled the pain he had suffered a while ago. It
had seemed like the pain from the entire eighteen levels of hell at once.
[Only a real man can endure the most devastating of pain and hardships!
These aren’t merely empty words!]
It was only natural that someone with Jun Mo Xie’s persistence would be
able to endure that kind of pain and suffering. But, not everyone could
endure it. In fact, most people wouldn’t be able to endure it. They
would be terror-stricken, and would never be able to evade the dark of
So, it was extremely fortunate that Jun Mo Xie had survived it. He had
met a number of people in his two lives. But, the number of people who
could’ve survived that ordeal could be counted on five fingers.
And, that was enough to make him proud!
He had the persistence of an Evil Monarch. And, he had the crazed
endurance of an Evil Monarch. But, that was also his greatest asset!
An indistinct and vague chant suddenly appeared in Jun Mo Xie’s mind.
“There’s a road to the sky above, but it takes an age to set upon it.
Raise you head and look at the beautiful trees. A heart with a mountain
of spirit is only a lake at the foot of an immortal. One can take this
road after nine transformations of the soul…”
The aura in the third level of the Hong Jun Pagoda spanned heaven and
He had finally broken through another barrier! A bright light had flashed
at the time he had broken into the second layer of the Hong Jun Pagoda.
And, his cultivation had broken past the first nine levels of Xuan Qi
cultivation when that had happened. But, he had jumped from the Jade Xuan
Peak to the initial level of Sky Xuan this time. And, this breakthrough
was equal to advancing another one of the four barriers of Xuan Qi
cultivation! This was astonishing. In fact, it was terrifying!
They were only four major barriers in count. However, the progress was
exponential with each stage.
Everyone knows that the time required to breakthrough to the succeeding
levels increases as a person’s Xuan cultivation reaches a higher state.
Moreover, the arrangement of levels is very clearly organized. Therefore,
a person would have to face four major difficulties or barriers in their
journey. The first would be to ‘break the nine’ barriers. This
entails to the first nine levels of Xuan Qi cultivation. And, this is
what differentiates a Xuan Qi practitioner from an ordinary person.
The second was the ‘Jade Xuan’ entrance barrier. This was important
because it was the true starting point for the future. Jade Xuan was
certainly not a very high level. However, a person would never be able to
break into the Jade Xuan realm if they didn’t possess sufficient innate
talent for Xuan cultivation. So, to be able to reach the Jade Xuan realm
at an early age was indicative that the said-person possessed excellent
innate talent. And, this obviously dictated that they had a high
probability of achieving greater things in the future. For example…
Baili Luo Yun was merely a Jade Xuan expert. But, this was the main
reason why countless high-level experts were surprised at the sight of
And, the third major breakthrough would happen when a person would
advance from the Earth Xuan Peak to Sky Xuan. There was a massive
difference in the strength of these two levels. In fact, the difference
in power after the break through was so great that it couldn’t be
calculated. It required a lot of effort and time besides mere innate
talent to become a Sky Xuan expert. It was said that reaching that level
was somewhat like going from Level-One Xuan realm to Earth Xuan peak!
As for the fourth breakthrough… that’s to the realm of Spirit Xuan.
Any Sky Xuan expert who has cultivated at that level for thirty years or
more could reach the Spirit Xuan realm. However, most Sky Xuan experts
get very old by the time they reach the Sky Xuan realm. Therefore,
another thirty years of cultivation is often beyond their imagination by
that time. However, a person would reach an entirely different level of
strength once they had ascended to the Spirit Xuan realm. In fact, most
people couldn’t even dream of touching them. And, that was because they
had already cleared all the four major barriers!
To sum matter up… the Young Master had suffered greatly. In fact, it
would be an exaggeration to say that he had barely managed to survive
that painful ordeal. However, the rewards he had received in return were
also quite generous. This advancement was a huge leap. And, his advance
had been unpreceded as far as the history was concerned. In fact, one
could reckon that this feat would probably never be achieved again!
Jun Mo Xie silently went over the mantra he had just received. Then, he
recalled the mantras he had received at the previous two levels. He
recalled the mantra at the first level; “the soul that undergoes nine
refinements won’t fall into hell.” The second level had proclaimed,
“Nine loyal transformations will stabilize the soul.” Then, another
mantra had appeared at the third level as expected. And, it had said,
“One can take this road after nine transformations of the soul….”
These three mantras had one thing in common — the words “nine” and
“soul”. Jun Mo Xie nodded in silence and thought… [Is there a deeper
meaning to this?]
The number ‘nine’ seemed to important. The Hong Jun Pagoda had nine
layers. The Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune had nine levels as
well. Moreover, one would encounter a mantra every time they would
advance through each one of these levels. And, each of these mantras had
the number ‘nine’ in them. He hadn’t reached the top level yet.
But, Jun Mo Xie was certain that he would encounter the number ‘nine’
in each of the mantras as he’d advance further.
[What could this be hinting at?]
Jun Mo Xie recalled his previous two advancements. His soul had neither
undergone nine refinements, nor had it witnessed nine transformations.
[My soul hasn’t seen nine of anything. But, why did I still advance?]
