Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-461
The Third Elder was awfully broken-hearted. He was also quite mad and
The Seven Swords and the Third Elder had covered their long and arduous
journey in that grim mood, and had finally returned to the Snowy Peaks.
And, they went to the Silver Blizzard City the moment they returned to
the Snowy Peaks.
The entire sky had been enveloped in a blizzard. And, it was extremely
However, the Silver City’s people were obviously accustomed to that cold.
So, they didn’t care about it. In fact, they were habituated to such a
nasty weather. After all, they had grown up in such conditions. These
people were obviously unafraid of the cold, but the same couldn’t be said
for the injured ones. However, they didn’t need to worry in reality. They
had surely been branded as traitors by the Silver City. However, their
companions had still looked after them after being angry at them for a
few days in the beginning. Therefore, their injuries hadn’t worsened.
After all, humans are emotional beings at the end of the day…
Mu Xue Tong had inquired whether they should send an eagle to notify the
Silver City’s higher ups of their arrival in advance. However, the Third
Elder had resolutely shot down that idea after giving it some thought.
And, he hadn’t said no without reason either. After all, the Silver City
was controlled by the Xiao Family regardless of how things seemed from
the outside. This had been particularly the case ever since the birth of
Little Princess Han Yan Meng.
[I had always believed that the Han and Xiao Families were one family.
Who could’ve said that we weren’t the same? We hadn’t even though about
this matter. But, it suddenly seems that the Xiao Family had been
obsessed with this the entire time. The thought that I had never even
considered has suddenly left my blood to run cold!]
[The letter would surely fall into the hands of a Xiao Family member
first if we sent an eagle ahead of us. And, our Han Family would be
pacified if that happened.]
Therefore, the wise Third Elder took the safer option, and decided to
travel overnight to the Silver City. After all, the Lord of the City and
the Old Master of the City would spot their arrival as long as they were
to appear at the gates of the city.

However, he had never expected to be intercepted by the Great Elder Xiao
Xing Yun at the base of the peak. Moreover, the Great Elder was also
leading a team of powerful experts.
[How did he get the news to block me off like this?]
“Elder Brother? How come you’re here?” The Third Elder looked at Xiao
Xing Yun in astonishment. It wasn’t that he was prepared to blindly trust
a poisonous snake. After all, he knew that his Elder Brother had sinister
motives. However, that man had still been his ‘Elder Brother’ for eighty
years. So, he couldn’t change the usual term of address when that man
suddenly appeared in front of him.
The Third Elder had cursed him a million times over the course of the
journey. But, he still found it difficult accept such a cruel reality
when he was confronted with that familiar and amiable face.
“Elder Brother…? Ha ha ha… you still dare to call me ‘Elder
Brother’?” Xiao Xing Yun’s face darkened as he gave him a deep look. In
fact, it seemed like he would swallow him whole, “Two of my younger
brothers are dead because of you. My grandson is half-dead because of
you. My great-grandson is dead because of you. Moreover, two more of my
brothers have been rendered crippled for life because of you! You…”
“Do you think you can still call me ‘Elder Brother’ after everything that
has happened? How did you even dare to voice the words ‘Elder Brother’ in
flattery? I won’t allow you to address me like that!” Xiao Xing Yun
sneered. His glare was as sharp as a knife, “Han Fei Yun, you’ve boldly
created strife within the Silver City by having them killed. You’ve
committed the greatest sin. And, the heavens won’t tolerate this!
However, you’re still standing instead of kneeling and admitting your
“Ha ha ha… Xiao Xing Yun, I won’t call you ‘Elder Brother’ if you don’t
want! Anyway, why are you distorting the truth when everyone here is well
aware of it? I’d like you to ask your conscience… do you still think
that you’re even worthy of being called ‘Elder Brother’?”
The Third Elder’s beard trembled as he gave a mournful laugh. He then
slowly looked up, “Xiao Xing Yun, I had never thought that you would
instigate this betrayal! You’ve betrayed the Silver City. But, you’re too
arrogant if you think that you can take the Lord’s place. The heavens
will not abide by such vile ambitions!”
“Instigate betrayal? Ha ha ha…” Xiao Xing Yun laughed insolently, “You
say that I seek to betray? Everyone knows who the first true Lord of the
Silver City was, right? So, let me remind you why my Xiao Family’s
ancestor died — it was for your Han Family’s sake! My deceased ancestor
had set up the Silver City, and he had advanced it step by step. And, he
eventually died for it. However, the next generations of the Xiao Family
had already been born by that time…
“It is undeniable that the son inherits the father’s mantle. So, tell me
something Han Fei Yun — shouldn’t Han Zhang Meng have succeeded the
deceased Old Lord at that time?” Xiao Xing Yun had spoken in a very dark

The Third Elder had been rendered speechless. These arguments sounded and
seemed in proper accordance. In fact, it was reasonable to argue that the
Han Family’s ascension to the Lord’s position had been inappropriate.
However, the Han Family had never let the Xiao Family down in any way.
They had even been aware that the Xiao Family had been doing many
injustices in the name of the city. However, they had ignored it. In
fact, their guilty conscience had encouraged the rising flame of the Xiao
Family’s arrogance in the past centuries. Moreover, the Han Family’s
children had been taught to have tolerance for the Xiao Family from the
start. And, that’s why Xiao Han was able to cause such a huge disturbance
in those days…
“What? You’ve got nothing to say now? The Han Family should’ve supported
the Xiao Family’s younger generation for the Lord’s position if they had
genuinely felt gratitude and brotherly love towards their benefactor!
They should’ve tried their hardest to help. After all, this is the best
action one can take after someone does them a huge favor. But, your Han
Family had usurped the Lord’s position in the sly of that nonsensical
oath. In fact, they had shamelessly done this in front of the entire
“The true Young Lord of the City became a follower of the Silver City as
a result. And, the Han Family went from being the follower to the Lord!
There’s an old saying for this —’give a few drops of water, and they’ll
thirst for a whole river’! The Han Family usurped the city’s command from
the descendants of their very savior! Ha ha ha…! Moreover, the Han
Family even managed to act with such self-righteousness after they had
usurped those descendants’ position! In fact, they were even praised by
the entire world for their actions! This world is ridiculous! Don’t you
find it ridiculous, Han Fei Yun? Why don’t you speak now?” Xiao Xing Yun
became even more aggressive after he saw that Han Fei Yun had remained
“You’re talking nonsense! Many parties were vying with each other after
the defeat of the Great Alliance. The Silver Blizzard City had run into a
lot of trouble, and was facing crisis as a result. The rest of the world
would’ve swallowed us whole if order wasn’t brought back by such extreme
means! Therefore, the Han Family’s chief had bravely gone forward. And,
he had taken over the city. Moreover, he had step-by-step formed its base
during unsure times! The Han Family had fought every battle from the
forefront in order to protect your Xiao Family! Your Xiao Family was
always in safe positions, and your sacrifices had also been the least!
Can you deny that?
“Moreover, the Silver Blizzard City was only a medium-sized force in
society in those days. But, it’s now a world-renowned superpower that can
crush anyone. Our Old Lord had taken-on a huge problem at that time. And,
he had worked his entire life to bring the Silver City to its current
status! It can be said that the Silver City has reached its present glory
because of the Old Lord’s efforts! Can you deny this? Why can’t your Xiao
Family speak to its conscience? It’s very interesting to twist the truth.
The Third Elder laughed loudly. His face was full of hatred, “Han Family
has dealt out too many reparations for your Xiao Family over these
centuries! We have cleaned our guilt too many times! Moreover, it wasn’t
for that oath alone! However, that oath has still allowed you to
pressurize the Han Family for so many centuries! So, what grievances do
Both sides had shed all pretenses, and were in open conflict now. In
fact, everything was out in the open now.
“Bullshit! The Silver City was the Han Family’s home! So, why wouldn’t he
do his utmost for it? He obviously wanted to build a foundation for
himself! So, he stole it from someone else! Ha ha… the Xiao Family’s
position was stolen by the Han Family, and you still have the nerve to
speak with such a pompous attitude? In fact, you even have the nerve to
involve the critical situation our city had faced at that time! But, why
did the Han Family retain its control over the Silver City once that
crisis had passed?”
Xiao Xing Yun roared angrily.

“Wouldn’t the Silver City’s prestige have remained the same if the Xiao
Family had resumed control over the Lord’s position? Would our city’s
power have weakened? What nonsensical argument is this? Are you telling
me that the Han Family wouldn’t have done their best for the Silver City
if they hadn’t been allowed to take over?”
Xiao Xing Yun snorted and continued, “Your words are truly shameful! You
have been shamelessly using that excuse to cover your vile actions!
You’ve been using that excuse to shove your argument down people’s
throats! Your family has been unbelievable vile! What shamelessness do
you speak of? Your Han Family has been wearing the hat of shameless this
“You are twisting words and forcing logic!” The Third Elder’s eyes were
misty and red. His finger trembled, “A leader’s strength and courage
relates directly to the power of the city he controls! Don’t you
understand such a simple thing? The next generation was young and
cowardly at that time. So, how could they have supported our city during
those turbulent times? How were those descendants better than the Old
Lord’s skill in strategy? You only wish to add more guilt by using those
words. Moreover, you are even trying to use the memory of your ancestor’s
sacrifice in your selfish struggle for the city’s control! Don’t you
think that you’re being too despicable?”
Xiao Xing Yun sneered aloof and unconcerned, “Don’t speak nonsense! And,
there’s no need to stall for time either, Han Fei Yun! Do you know why
this old man is wasting so much time in arguing with you? It’s because no
one from the Han Family will ever come here from the Silver City’s peak!
In fact, I’m sure that no one will pass from here for two months! So,
I’ve nothing to worry about! Ha ha ha… I’ve been holding these words in
my heart for so many years! But, I’ve finally spoke them to my heart’s
content! I believe that I can speak these words squarely and uprightly to
the whole world! And, I’m sure the whole world will be convinced by them!”
Xiao Xing Yun had roared those words out. But, he spoke with an extremely
sad and hollow voice afterwards, “My second brother and I had planned
this over our entire lives! And, our desires are within reach now.
However, he won’t be able to witness it! He will never be able to see it!”
“My second brother… he’ll never see it!” he roared as his body trembled
and eyes watered.
The Xiao Family’s powerful and might Xing Yun and Bu Yu had never been
separated since childhood. However, they had been broken apart forever
when they had reached such an old age…
It was impossible to describe the pain of Xiao Xing Yun’s heart…
Consequently, he had come to hate the Han Family’s members even more…
especially the ones who stood in front of him at this time.
“Xiao Bu Yu is to blame for courting disaster for himself and Xiao Han!
What does the Silver City have to do with it? What did we have to do with
it? But, you still wish to take it out on us? That’s ridiculous!” Han Fei
Yun gave a sharp glare as he secretly grasped his sword, “This is
rebellion, Xiao Xing Yun! This is a rebellion against the Silver City!”

There was a flash as a sword was unsheathed with a “whoosh”, and a piece
of clothing fell to the ground.
“I break my ties with you from this moment forth! I discard the
friendship we have shared!”
