Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-387
This was undoubtedly a signal. In fact, it was an explosive signal! There
was no room for a mistake since he had sent his signal forth. Big Bear
and Long Crane would surely come to meet him as long as they were in the
Tian Fa forest.
The Crane King and the Bear King were sitting in the very depths of the
forest, and were drinking wine.
Long Crane’s mind was cautious as usual. But, Big Bear was enjoying and
living in the moment. He was having a typical ‘the monkey takes over
when there’s no tiger in the forest’ moment. [I’m the boss since
the Eldest isn’t present here!]
Therefore, he had dragged Long Crane for some drinks, and this had been
continuing for two full days by now. He didn’t even care about what had
happened in Tian Fa over the past few days… or what they would have to
face in the future. This simple-minded temperament was entirely different
from that of Jun Mo Xie’s, but it somehow managed to yield the same
The two Beast Kings weren’t drinking in their human forms at that
moment. Rather, they were drinking that sea of alcohol in their original
forms. On one side was a huge bear covered in golden fur. In fact, it
almost resembled a mountain. The Crane King’s original form was one of
a red-crowned crane. His body was even bigger, and was covered in white
feathers. And, his eyes resembled two flaming torches. There was a
gigantic natural platform in front of these two Beast Kings. They seemed
to be using it as table. Wine cups carved out of red sandalwood trees had
been placed on this table of theirs’. And, each of these cups was as
big as a large barrel of wine.
And, the wine that these two Beast Kings were drinking gave off an
exceptionally nostril-assailing fragrance. In fact, it was the
monkey-folk of the Tian Fa Forest which had brewed that ‘Monkey
Wine.’ And, these two Beast Kings had used their position to procure
this wine. The massive mouth of a bear opened along with the giant beak
of a crane, and the rapidly drained the wine down their throats.
“Third, I’ve noticed that you’re becoming increasingly cautious. In
fact, your caution has crossed every boundary. And, you’re particularly
worried about that matter regarding our Sacred Fruit! I think that it’s
useless for you to get so worried!” Big Bear’s eyes had gone out of
focus due to the intoxication. He patted his golden-fur-covered chest,
and vomited out the words, “I don’t get it. You’ve been worrying the
entire day. How are you not tired?”
It was obvious that Long Crane was very worried about the entire matter
surrounding the Tian Fa’s Sacred Fruit. However, Big Bear didn’t care
about it. He was very confident when it came to that Mysterious Master.
His intuition was telling him that a person with such a high cultivation
level wouldn’t see any need to cheat them. Therefore, he couldn’t
understand Long Crane’s anxiousness. In fact, he even despised it
“Your brain is full of muscle, Big Bear! What would you know?” Long Crane
turned and raised his eyelid to look at Big Bear with his huge ruby-like
eyes. “We need to worry since there’s a chance that everything may go
wrong! How would you and I bail ourselves out if we don’t see that
man’s shadow again? That bear-brain of yours is too small and muddled.
Anyone can cheat it with ease! The second Brother was negligent and
gambled foolishly. Now, he has to serve others. You’re also behaving
like that! And, you won’t get a chance to run either!”
Big Bear remained silent for a moment. He then said in a low voice,
“Third Brother, I believe in that Mysterious Master. Moreover, I feel
that the risk of using the Sacred Fruit is too great for us! There’s
always the danger that our body might explode. In fact, the success rate
hasn’t even reached thirty-percent in the past. And, it seems like that
skilled and mysterious person possesses a method which doesn’t involve
any risks. So, it’s worth the wait and the risk…”
Long Crane stared blankly after he heard Big Bear’s words. He had never
expected that his fourth brother — that ignorant Big Bear — could put
forth an argument that would seem so reasonable, “I had never considered
that you could make such arguments, Fourth Brother. This is a genuine
case of ‘even a fool gives wise counsel once in a while’. I genuinely
respect you for those words!”
Big Bear felt very happy when he heard those words. But, he then finished
three or four glasses in one breath and said, “What, ‘a fool gives wise
counsel once in a while’…? This Beast King has always been
intelligent! I never open my mouth without giving things a thought!”
Long Crane couldn’t help but smile after he heard Big Bear’s boast.
In fact, he was going to raise a toast when he suddenly recalled
something, “How did you have the courage to address me like that? Who did
you call ‘Third Brother’ a moment ago? I’m your ‘Third Elder
Brother!’ Is there no basic sense of respect left between seniors and
juniors anymore? I had barely spoken those words of praise, and you
forgot the basic courtesy? Anyway, you may have made a reasonable
argument, but this matter it is still too risky! After all, the Sacred
Fruit not being in our hands… is still not a good thing!”
Big Bear snorted and replied, “What risks? Isn’t it risky to have the
Sacred Fruit by ourselves? And, no one has ever been able to steal our
Sacred Fruit. It has never happened since ancient times! And, it won’t
happen now either. Do you want to make a bet?”
Long Crane rolled his red eyes. He didn’t seem to be in a good mood,
“When will you drop this bad habit of making bets? Don’t forget that
Second Brother is someone else’s mount because he had made a bet! And,
I see a similar trend with you! Besides, what can the two of us bet on?
Both of us will be slitting our throats if we don’t find that man. You
want to bet on that? Bet… my a*s!”
Big Bear’s anger flared, and he shouted as he got up, “I really love
betting, right?! So, I will make a bet with you that… that person
isn’t the bad guy you say he is!”
Long Crane snorted, and replied in a salty and strong manner, “Not that
kind of a man? Are you sure? He should’ve honored his commitment and
kept his promise since that Xue Hun Manor has been turned to dust! Humph!
Let’s not talk about whether he can keep his promise about giving us
the pills in exchange for our Tia Fa’s Sacred Fruit… He should’ve
at least helped us break through the level ten Xuan Beast barrier as he
had promised! So, why did he disappear even though we had come to an
“Perhaps he has been delayed by another matter? Such a skilled person
wouldn’t be so shameless, right?” Big Bear’s tone had sounded very
confident a moment ago. However, it had suddenly collapsed. In fact, he
seemed to have lost some of his confidence by now…
“Are you sure that a very skilled person won’t be shameless?” Long
Crane sighed and said, “There are many in the human race who are
treacherous. How many of them would care about a single promise? You are
still very naïve, Big Bear. Does great intelligence appear stupidity to
you? You have fooled yourself!”
Big Bear snorted and vigorously grabbed a cup of wine. He then tilted his
head, and gulped its contents down with an askance look on his face. It
was evident that he couldn’t bear with Long Crane’s caution.
He was about to refute when he suddenly felt an earth-shattering power
push forth through Tian Fa. Big Bear suddenly trembled. Even his hand
started to tremble as he threw that big cup of wine with a “Bang”. He
then jumped up, and spoke-up in an exceptionally excited manner, “It’s
him! He’s looking for us! He’s here to help us breakthrough! What do
you have to say about that, Third Crane?”
Long Crane’s face also lit-up with delight. In fact, he had even
forgotten to notice the “Third Crane” remark. The Beast King flew up with
an explosive sound. His wings glittered as he shouted, “You have won the
bet, Fourth! He has arrived!”
The two Beast Kings looked at each other. Their eyes were filled with
Big Bear was evidently unwillingly to wait for even a single moment. He
shouted and jumped onto Long Crane’s back. After that, he shouted
loudly as he pointed his finger forward, “Hurry up and take off!” His
tone was decisive. In fact, it was like an order. But, Long Crane
wasn’t prepared for his thousands of kilograms of weight, and was
pushed down as a result. He obviously wasn’t able to take off. In fact,
he fell to the ground. He then rebuked in an indignant tone, “Shameless!
Don’t ever jump onto me in this bear form of yours! Don’t you know
that you weigh one-and-a-half ton?!”
However, he didn’t feel any change by the time he finished speaking.
So, he added more words, “Hurry up and get down! I’m your Third Brother
— not your saddled mount! Run on your own!”
Big Bear grabbed two of Long Crane’s feathers, and didn’t let go.
Then, he quickly transformed to his human form, but he shamelessly
refused to come down. Long Crane felt helpless. And, he also feared to
delay at such a crucial moment. So, he flapped his wings and took-off.
Then, he rushed forward like lightning.
He quickly charged towards the direction this enormous pressure was
Jun Mo Xie was standing in midair. He could feel the Xuan Beasts cower
under his extremely formidable power. None of them had dared to make a
move. [I’m sure that there aren’t many Xuan Beasts who can withstand
Strong winds and thunder arose in the distance. This was accompanied by a
huge silhouette which was flying over.
It was Big Bear riding atop Long Crane! The scene looked as awe-inspiring
as the ones from the mythical legends of the dragon knights.
Jun Mo Xie remained in the air until Long Crane transformed into his
human form and both the Beast Kings landed on the ground. Then, Young
Master Jun also floated down with a feather-like swiftness.
“Senior… you… you came!” Long Crane felt somewhat embarrassed. He had
called him ‘Elder Brother Feng’ that time in the Tian Xiang City.
But, he was already calling him “Senior” now. In fact, the two Beast
Kings felt somewhat depressed since they had previously dared to consider
him of their rank and generation…
Moreover, they had doubted this person only moments ago. Therefore, Long
Crane felt a bit embarrassed since this person had appeared in front of
him at this time…
“Ahem… I was about to leave the Southern Heaven City. But, I suddenly
recalled that I still owed you a promise. A man is nothing without his
credibility. So, how could I leave before repaying you for the past
favors?” Jun Mo Xie gave a detailed account. He sounded magnificent by
“Ka ka ka! Senior is genuinely a trustworthy person! Third Crane was
worried that you won’t come. He felt that you were likely to run away
like a thief! But, I strongly reprimanded him. You have learned of your
mistake, isn’t that right Third Crane? Ha ha ha!” Big Bear felt very
proud of himself. And, he had drawn back the corners of his big mouth
since he felt happy about winning the bet.
How could he not feel proud of himself? This man had shown up and had
displayed his importance to his commitment. [How could he steal the
Sacred Fruit and leave? That matter with those pills can’t be a trick
Consequently, Big Bear had laid down everything that had been weighing on
“You… you… you… you damned bear! What rubbish are you talking? I…
How can I not have faith in the Senior?” Long Crane became very angry.
His fingers started to tremble. He wanted to strangle Big Bear. He had
never expected that Big Bear would betray him in order to win a favor
with the person in front of them…
“No harm done. That was only natural,” Jun Mo Xie chuckled and smiled. He
didn’t know why, but he felt very cheerful whenever he’d face those
two Beast Kings. This wasn’t a pleasure he derived from acting like a
pretentious jerk in front of them. Rather, this was derived from the
comfort he felt since he didn’t need to analyze any schemes when he
dealt with them…
Those Xuan Beast Kings of the Tian Fa Forest were simple and pure when
compared to humans. And, this atmosphere made Jun Mo Xie feel relaxed. He
felt at ease since he was far away from that endless deception, and
“Ahem… I’ve come here to keep my promise. First, I need you two to
prepare yourselves. I want you to calm your aura, and bring your
conditions to the very optimum. What’s most important is that you two
bring your mental state to its most peaceful. And, I will first have a
look at the borders for your breakthrough.”
Jun Mo Xie smiled. He hadn’t realized that he was being very amiable.
In fact, he would rarely be seen like this… except for when he was with
Grandpa Jun, his Third Uncle, and a very few other people.
Long Crane and Big Bear perceived that faintly amiable aura around him
very clearly. So, they also started to trust him completely.
