Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-454
Dugu Xiao Yi stood up sobbing, and wiped her tears. She looked like she
had been seriously wronged.
The entire family became silent as they looked at that pillow in the
The face of Dugu Xiao Yi’s mother was full of helplessness for a long
while. Then, she eventually looked at her mother-in-law, “Mother… what
should we do about this?”
Old Lady Dugu panted with rage, “What should we do about it…? Put some
dressing on it!” She snorted heavily before she gave a long sigh. Then,
she said, “The matter has already reached this far. So, what can be done
Dugu Zong Heng’s eyes were opened wide. He too panted with rage, “What
can be done…? This girl appeared pregnant to everyone! And, I’m sure
that everyone in Tian Xiang believes that the Granddaughter of the Dugu
Family is pregnant with the Jun Family’s child! So, what can we do? Fu*k!
This thing has happened to the Dugu Family! This old man is very furious!
Anyone else taking advantage of this situation would’ve been better than
that Jun Family! Our family is very unfortunate!”
“Father, you mean that…” Dugu Wu Di spoke-up very cautiously. He had
finally understood the matter. Today’s biggest error wasn’t made by Dugu
Xiao Yi — but by him. It seemed that everything he had spoken was
wrong. And, it had now become a thorn at the old man’s side…
[My maiden daughter isn’t pregnant. So, she won’t be birthing an
“What do I mean…? This is disgraceful! What does this mean for our
family? What does this mean for your daughter? I’m saying that our Dugu
Family’s bad reputation will reach the heavens! Can’t you use your
brains? You, you, you only want to infuriate this old man further, don’t
you? You idiot!” Dugu Zong Heng jumped up, and started to rain curses.
Dugu Wu Di withdrew his neck, and became silent. [I’ll get a scolding if
I speak up. But, he won’t let me stay silent either…]
“Why don’t you speak? Can’t you speak? You still dare to stay quiet and
rebel against me? This behooves you!” Old Man Dugu circled like an evil
monster as his finger pointed at General Dugu’s nose, while his saliva
sprayed like rain.
[I didn’t expect that staying silent would also cause so much trouble.]
Dugu Wu Di had been rendered speechless.
“Tomorrow, we will arrange our men to go to the Jun Family in order to
talk this matter over. We can’t let that brat do the damage and slip away
so cleanly! That brat is the reason behind this chaos!” Old Lady Dugu
boldly made a decision, “That debauchee brat will feel very satisfied
after he marries my granddaughter. Let me meet him tomorrow!”
“Tomorrow… isn’t that good. The Jun family is also facing trouble right
now. So, tomorrow… is troublesome.” Dugu Wu Di pulled his head back to
look at his mother. He had a sense of foreboding.
“I said we’ll go tomorrow. So, we’ll go tomorrow! And, there won’t be any
questions about it!” Old Lady Dugu glared wide eyed, “You father-son and
seven idiots will deal with whatever’s happening in the capital! What’s
the big deal about it? What’s it worth! Even a barnyard is as noisy as
“Jun Mo Xie is massacring people throughout the capital!” Dugu Wu Di
spoke-up in a low voice. However, he saw that no one reacted. So, he
continued to speak, “That brat is very ferocious!”
“Very ferocious!” the old lady nodded in a gratified manner, “This old
lady’s son-in-law can’t be a weakling! There’s a rumor that he prevailed
over four Spirit Xuan experts! I had always thought that it was a rumor.
But, I can tell that his power reaches the heavens now that I see him
massacring the entire city. He’s a powerful youngster!” Then, she
suddenly became angry, “You shameful bastard! You know that we are on the
same boat as the Jun Family now. But, you still haven’t gone to help
them?! What will you do if they bully Xiao Yi after the marriage because
our family didn’t support them? Will you take responsibility for it?”
Dugu Wu Di was left stunned by this.
[My parents are unreasonable! I had always thought that mother is
[How did they come to this? They’re already thinking of Xiao Yi’s
happiness after marriage?]
[My mother genuinely has a long foresight…]
The women suddenly crowded around the old lady and Dugu Xiao Yi, and
began to chatter and giggle. The wedding discussions could already be
heard in the distance. In fact, even the birth of children and their
names were being discussed…
Dugu Wu Di and Dugu Zong Heng looked at each other in dismay. They didn’t
know whether to laugh or cry…
A long while passed like this. Then, Old Man Dugu suddenly raised his leg
and kicked Dugu Wu Di’s posterior, “You’re still too unhappy to help, you
bastard? What are you doing standing here? What’s so good to see here?”
Dugu Wu Di hastily sneaked away. But, he was still mad inside. [Jun Mo
Xie… fu*k you! Everything has happened because of you… you shameless
The seven “Heroes and Legends Bravely Rushing Forward” saw their
grandfather looking at them. So, they quickly got up as well, and fled in
Dugu Wu Di’s stead…
The world outside was crowding with people, and the entire city was being
turned upside down. However, Jun Mo Xie was at home. And, he was
preparing for his grandfather’s advancement with full devotion.
[This is a world where the strong are respected. So, the faster one
becomes stronger — the better it is! Anyway, where could those clown
standing outside run to? A monk may run away. But, he can never run from
Therefore, Jun Mo Xie wasn’t too anxious about making reprisals.
Moreover, he felt that those people would only discuss about matters that
would intimidate them further…
He had first taken Guan Qing Han back to her courtyard when they had
returned. However, she had told him to stay when he was about to leave…
Jun Mo Xie had turned around in astonishment… only to see that Guan
Qing Han was standing delicately and timidly at the doorway. Her figure
was slight, and her face seemed thinned out. She appeared to be cowering
in fear as she looked into Jun Mo Xie’s eyes with an expression of
Jun Mo Xie looked back at Guan Qing Han. And, she somewhat lowered her
head as tears fell down her face, and onto the ground…
Jun Mo Xie trembled inside. [This woman!]
[This beautiful woman… this unrivalled beauty… who knows how much she
has had to endure…! How much torment she has gone through?]
[Who would have empathized with her? I suppose that the men are supreme,
and women are worth less than servants’ clothes.] However, Jun Mo Xie had
crossed over from the modern world. So, he could somewhat understand her
terrible suffering. Only he could put himself in her shoes, and only he
could think about her from a woman’s point of view…
No one else could do it. And, even if anyone could think about it —
they’d think it right!
But, was it?
This woman had always been like ice. She was a proud and cold woman. But,
she was still a woman in the end. And, she had finally shown her weakness!
Perhaps the cold and aloof mannerism of Guan Qing Han’s had been nothing
other than helplessness of a sort. After all, a young lady in the prime
of her youth had been turned into nothing but a tool to climb up the
social ladder for the sake of powerful! And, men of this world had fixed
that life for her…
The realization that her fiancé was someone with a heroic character
must’ve consoled the young lady’s heart a little. It wasn’t long before
her wedding… It wasn’t long before she would be draped in silk… It
wasn’t long before she’d get to assist her husband in running the house
and raising the children… However, she had suddenly gotten to hear the
news of her fiancé’s death instead of the wedding bells. Her fiancé had
fallen and died in battle…
She had suffered a huge loss, but she still went ahead and got married
for her family. Some of it was voluntary, and some it was forced. But,
how could she have been forced if she had done it voluntarily…?
She would’ve perhaps become another tool for more power if she had
remained with her family. But, it wouldn’t have been so with the Jun
Family. She would’ve surely been alone in the Jun Family, but she would
also have been free and peaceful. Moreover, she would’ve been away from
those ugly schemes…
Therefore, she had consented to come to her fiancé’s family in despair.
Otherwise, how could a flowery girl whose tenderness could give rise to a
poetic dream in any man’s life agree to marry a deceased hero for the
sake of a life of loneliness?
However, Guan Qing Han genuinely hadn’t had any other option.
She had already come to despair everything. She despaired of marriage…
of the very thought of marriage… even of life!
Therefore, she came to the Jun Family. And, the Jun Family was
fortunately good to her. But then, the matter with the Xue Hun Manor
appeared after a while…
And thus, her already-despairing family had been forced into a tough
Guan Qing Han had thought of dying…
However, the Jun Family would’ve endured the very heavens for her.
Therefore, she wouldn’t have regretted doing anything for Jun Family. She
genuinely wouldn’t have regretted! So, she followed the army to Southern
Heaven City with secret intentions to sacrifice herself for the Jun
She didn’t need to sacrifice herself in the end. However, another mishap
occurred. Jun Mo Xie — her brother-in-law was affected by an
aphrodisiac and his life was rendered in peril. And, the one who had
caused that evil had already fled in panic. She knew that she could’ve
left if she wanted. But, where would she have found a woman in the
[Wouldn’t Jun Mo Xie die burning with desire if we can’t find a woman?]
Therefore, Guan Qing Han had no other choice but to use her body in order
to save him.
Someone could argue that Guan Qing Han knew the affections Dugu Xiao Yi
had for Jun Mo Xie. So, why hadn’t she called her back instead?
However, how could she have explained it to the girl’s family? And, why
had Dugu Xiao Yi escaped in the first place? Didn’t she know the
consequences of administering the drug? Who would administer an
aphrodisiac and not know what would happen as a result? Dugu Xiao Yi
might have been an exception, but Guan Qing Han wasn’t…
She had thought; [why would she run if she has administered him with an
aphrodisiac? But, would she return if she has already fled…?]
Guan Qing Han was left with no other choice once she had realized this.
Therefore, she could only give her virtue to the Jun Family… She could
only give her benefactor-family a chance to continue their bloodline…
Guan Qing Han had no choice. Moreover, her honor also prevented her from
going back. It didn’t matter how she felt about Jun Mo Xie — she
couldn’t cower in the face of this situation!
But, she was caught in a storm when she saved Jun Mo Xie’s life. And, she
was stained with the accusations of the whole world as a result. She was
stained with the immorality of a relationship between a brother and
sister-in-law… And, she couldn’t escape that black mark no matter what
the reason behind her actions…
The honor of the two families!
The pressure of these matters had left her to suffocate.
Guan Qing Han had wanted to kill herself every time Jun Mo Xie had even
harbored a tiny speck of hesitation with respect to that incident. And,
making herself return to Tian Xiang City was already the bravest thing
she had every done in her life.
Because she still had a little hope in her heart…
And, Jun Mo Xie hadn’t let her down!
However, she still felt vulnerable like before. In fact, she felt as
vulnerable as a sea weed in an ocean current.
Jun Mo Xie’s heart pounded as he took two steps forward. The two had
looked deep into each other’s eyes. And, Jun Mo Xie had finally seen the
helplessness and despair of Guan Qing Han’s eyes.
Jun Mo Xie looked at her carefully as he raised his hand and held hers.
Then, he spoke in a soft but firm tone, “Don’t be afraid! Leave…
everything to me!”
Jun Mo Xie’s words were like an astonishing sword piercing through the
haze in the sky. And, that sky full of black clouds was suddenly pierced
by a small ray of light…
In fact, these words had resembled the grandeur of a boundless
mountain… they were as an inexhaustible as a bottomless river… they
were as thunderous as a torrential snowfall in open summer… And, Guan
Qing Han suddenly felt like she could rely on these words as if they were
the unshakable base of a towering mountain peak!
Guan Qing Han’s eyes suddenly shone like a full moon.
Her lips trembled a little as she withdrew her curled hand from the
warmth of Jun Mo Xie’s palm… even though she didn’t want to.
However, Jun Mo Xie didn’t let it go. He held it even tighter instead as
he spoke-up again.
“Don’t be afraid! Leave everything to me!”
Guan Qing Han finally submitted to Jun Mo Xie’s grasp. Her lips moved,
but no words came out… Only two tears streamed down.
[These hands are very strong! And, very… warm!]
Guan Qing Han’s tears fell like rain.
