Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-444
Jun Mo Xie had resolved most of the matter that surrounded the Xiao
Family. Therefore, most of this evil charms had subsided as far as that
matter was concerned. However, the aura of his charms had still been
growing around his body over the course of this journey. In fact, they
had been becoming increasingly dense. But, this increase in his aura was
accompanied by a proportionately dulling look in his eyes. This change
was surely very contradictory in nature. However, it only added an
indescribable evil charm to his personality…
This was the charisma of Jun Mo Xie from his previous life. This was the
charisma of someone who’d look askance at the world, and would look down
on all creation.
It was the same then.
It was the same now.
Dugu Xiao Yi looked at Jun Mo Xie, and couldn’t make it out properly…
Jun Mo Xie had seldom gone to the girls’ area after he had beaten the
Xiao Family. He had mostly stuck with the men instead. Guan Qing Han
could still remain calm, but Dugu Xiao Yi couldn’t contain herself. So,
she’d regularly run to see Jun Mo Xie. But, her efforts didn’t produce
It was because Jun Mo Xie had been truly disappearing during these days.
He didn’t spend much time outside. Instead, the Young Master spent most
of it inside the Hong Jun Pagoda, and would focus of his efforts to
promote his cultivation.
[The clenched fist is the greatest argument in this world.]
Jun Mo Xie wanted to replace the sword which Jun Wu Yi had used with one
of the nine divine swords he had forged. But, Jun Wu Yi didn’t agree to
it. He said that the sword he was currently using was fine, and he was
satisfied with it. But, he was mainly attached to that sword because this
was the weapon he had used to defeat Xiao Han.
That sword had cleansed the greatest shame of Jun Wu Yi’s life. So, he
would treasure it even it was merely a scrap of iron. Moreover, hadn’t
this sword also been forged with Jun Mo Xie’s “turning iron into
wonderful gold” technique? Its quality may not have been as good as the
nine swords Jun Mo Xie had forged later, but it was still an extremely
rare and divine weapon in the eyes of the mortal world.
Jun Mo Xie understood this feeling very well. So, he didn’t insist
Moreover, the quality of the weapon wasn’t always the final parameter.
After all, it was also important to find the perfect man for the sword. A
man and a sword which suit each other well had the potential to take
their abilities to great heights.
Jun Wu Yi wasn’t the only one who was like that. The Young Master also
nourished his divine weapon — the “Blood of Yellow Flame”. Men have
souls, and swords have spirits. And, things could only work in perfect
sync if the two had a deep connection.
Jun Mo Xie wasn’t aware of any sword spirits or their legends. But, he
also believed that divine weapons which could cleave iron like it was
clay must have some spirits within them.
Perhaps it depended on the swordsmen’s psychology… For instance… A
swordsman mustn’t deserve to hold a sword if he didn’t feel any
connection to it… even if it were made of the best metals!
Therefore, Jun Mo Xie would use that “golden method” to tune his mind’s
reaction to the sword’s movements. He would also try to experience and
understand the sword. After all, that sword was the only companion which
would never betray him.
People could change, and people could betray. But, the sword would never
do it; never!
It could only accompany its master forever… until the sword broke, or
the man died!
Jun Mo Xie had even felt his sword tremble once they had reached close to
the Tian Xiang City. It was because it had sensed ruthless and bloody
events lying ahead. In fact, it seemed as if it thirsted for slaughter.
That kind of faint murderous intention had also triggered Jun Mo Xie’s
murderous aura. And, his aura had also started to become denser as his
sword’s intention became stronger. His face had become increasingly
still. His expression had become increasingly demonic, while his heart
had started to beat more violently.
The men and horses circled a mountain.
Jun Mo Xie and Jun Wu Yi gazed at the small mountain in unison.
It was that same mountain by chance…
This was where Jun Mo Xie had slaughtered the Blood Sword Hall to loot
the crossbows. But, he now knew that his actions hadn’t been unjust.
After all, the Blood Sword Hall had been the Jun Family’s enemy this
[Even their deaths can’t absolve their crimes!]
The road ahead seemed empty. However, Tian Xang City’s walls could be
faintly seen in the moonlight if one were to raise their head and look.
Jun Mo Xie’s narrowed eyes lit up with sharp flashes of light. It was
like a sleeping God of Death had suddenly opened his eyes and his
large-malevolent mouth. His murderous aura rose with an explosion, and
surged forth in a tyrannical manner.
The God of Death had opened his eyes. The King of Hell looked, and the
King of Evil focused!
[This journey has been long, but I will finally see who has been creating
this chaos and gossip in Tian Xiang City!]
Jun Mo Xie’s sword half-drew itself out of the scabbard with a loud
screech after it sensed his murderous aura. It glistened brightly and
clearly in the light; it looked very threatening. It appeared as if those
bright clouds that were tinged with sunset had suddenly descending onto
the world. Or… as if the ruler of heaven and earth had suddenly opened
his cold and murderous eyes!
The ruler looked down on the common people as he overlooked the whole
world. It seemed that he would confront the upcoming tides of chaos, and
he would show no quarter as he prepared to slaughter in a madden frenzy.
This murderous aura pierced straight into Tian Xiang.
The men around Jun Mo Xie felt the arrival of a terrible, awe-inspiring,
and frightening power beside them. It took them a moment to realize what
had come to happen. However, they discovered that Jun Mo Xie had already
left their side by then. In fact, he had walked thirty meters ahead…
Moreover, these iron-blooded soldiers… these veterans of hundreds of
wars were finding it hard to endure Jun Mo Xie’s aura at this moment…
Even the profoundly strong Mei Xue Yan opened her eyes flabbergasted. She
then looked at that man’s sword, and frowned. The others wouldn’t have
thought much of it. But, she could sense that the sword was every bit as
powerful and awe-inspiring as the man who wielded it. [This man and his
sword can make for two very formidable opponents. And, the two of them
could easily pose a huge threat to me when combined!]
[How can this be? That is only a sword; and nothing more! It may be
unique in its quality, and it may be unrivalled in its sharpness. But,
it’s still an inanimate object! So, why is it giving me such a strange
feeling?! In fact… that sword seems more dangerous than Jun Mo Xie…]
The army set up camp fifteen kilometers away from Tian Xiang City. This
was a custom. The army mustn’t enter the Imperial City at once after it
had returned triumphant. They would receive their orders, and the
high-ranking generals would enter the city first. The rest of the army
would only be allowed to return to their barracks later.
Jun Mo Xie moved to the front of the army at once.
They heard a loud screech. This strange sound had sourced from the
flagpole of the carriage beside them. The flag was hoisted to flutter in
the wind as a result. However, there was a whooshing sound after that,
and the flagpole suddenly sprouted half as many more. In fact, it seemed
as if a sharp sword had pierced the heavens.
This was a very strange thing. So, it was obvious that the men who saw it
were left dumbstruck. But, no one dared to ask why when they sensed that
restrained but tyrannical aura that was emanating from Jun Mo Xie.
It seemed like Jun Mo Xie was a volcano which had remained dormant for
thousands of years. However, this volcano was about to erupt soon…
Suddenly, a loud bugle sounded inside Tian Xiang City. The drawbridge
fell down, and a group of riders suddenly rode out with a thunderous
sound. Two huge banners were also dropped down from the walls on either
side of the gate.
On the left marked — The divine power of the Blood General.
On the right marked — Victorious from the Southern Heaven City.
Then, an ordered troop of men came out following the first group of
riders. This was the official ceremonial honors to receive a triumphant
The first group of riders drew closer with a thunderous sound. However,
they didn’t decrease their speed. In fact, they rode with increasing
swiftness. But, Jun Wu Yi couldn’t help but smile at the sight of the man
[It has been a long time since we’ve met, Dugu Wu Di!]
Jun Wu Yi knew that this was a suicide mission when he had gone to war.
But, he had returned hale and healthy, and was finally meeting his friend
after a long time. So, he smiled and moved forward to meet him. But then,
he noticed that something was wrong. He couldn’t help but be stunned by
this realization, and was forced to rein his horse.
He saw that the Dugu Family’s General Dugu Wu Di was riding forth with
his two large sons and nephews. In fact, one could see that General
Dugu’s hedgehog-quills-like beard was quivering like a young dragon’s as
they got closer. His eyes were opened wide like round bells, and it
seemed as if he could shoot fire out of them. It seemed like the horses
won’t stop until the man had arrived. However, this man suddenly gave a
loud roar at this time…
“Dugu Chong, Dugu Shang, Dugu Qian — come the fu*k out you three
bastards!” his voice shook everything like thunder, “And, Dugu Xiao Yi…
you come out quickly too! Aaaargh! You’ve angered me as well!”
Listening to this roar was enough to tell that General Dugu was extremely
mad. In fact, it was evident that he was unable to restrain his rage!
Dugu Chong, Dugu Shang, Dugu Qian — the three members of the Dugu
Family’s, “Heroes and Legends Bravely Rushing Forward,” felt like their
souls had flown away in fear after they listened to Dugu Wu Di’s loud
The three brothers had calculated their actions beforehand, and were
happy with it. They had thought that they would enter the city, receive
their orders, and would then flee to the western front to seek shelter
under their fathers and uncles. They obviously knew that they couldn’t
return home. After all, their skin would be flayed in case they did…
But, they hadn’t expected that Dugu Wu Di would come forth to catch them
outside. And, that too with such speed…
The three looked at each other in dismay for a moment, and started to
tremble when they saw the terror in the others’ eyes. So, they dejectedly
came out after dilly-dallying for a while. They had obviously realized
that hiding wouldn’t be good for their cause. However, they resembled
defeated troops, and were emanating an aura of defeat on their personas…
“I’ll deal with you three wretched disgraces!” Dugu Wu Di’s eyes were
opened wide as he panted hoarsely and called out. He raised his
horsewhip, “I had sent you three to watch over your little sister, your
sister, right?! Huh? Are the three of you just good for looking like
giant bears on a battle field…? Damn it! Why don’t you eat hot shit?!
You don’t like living? Why don’t you go to hell then? My Dugu Family
would be well if it rids itself of you good-for-nothing losers!”
There was no nonsense; only a crack of the horsewhip! However, the three
burly youngsters stood there motionless. In fact, they even winked and
pulled faces at each other. [We foresaw that we would be whipped. So, we
wore armor under our clothes. Anyway, everything will be fine as long as
he doesn’t tell us by looking at our faces… Hehe…]
“Dugu Xiao Yi? Why haven’t you come out, you filthy little girl? You can
hide for a while, but can you hide forever? Come out quickly, and face
me!” Dugu Wu Di cracked his whip twice in front of the crowd. He then
threw it aside, and screamed like a black bear.
The ceremonial guards had also arrived by that time. In fact, their front
was almost upon Dugu Wu Di.
“Daddy… this daughter has missed you a lot…” Dugu Xiao Yi slowly
walked out from the army. In fact, each step she took… was unusually
“You… you…” General Dugu shot one glance at her. Then, everything
went dark before his eyes, and he fell to the ground…
