Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-463
Mu Xue Tong pulled the Silver City’s Han Yan Meng tightly to him with one
hand, and gave everything he had as he dashed through the snow. He didn’t
even dare to glance back. And, that’s because he knew that his speed
would slow down if he were to glance back for even a second. And, there
was a chance that he would get caught if he was slowed down even
momentarily. However, that would mean that the sacrifice of the Third
Elder and the others would go in vain.
Therefore, he lowered his head, and escaped in grief and indignation with
every ounce of strength he could muster.
He could hear those resounding and landslide-like explosions in the
distance behind him. It seemed like a Spirit Xuan expert was giving
everything he had. In fact, it seemed that he was even depleting his
hidden tricks while doing his best to attack the enemy. Mu Xue Tong was
only at Sky Xuan, but he had been considered a prodigy. There were many
Spirit Xuan experts in the Silver City. So, he could recognize the
meaning of such explosions very clearly.
The Third Elder was laughing shrilly in the distance, “Are you enjoying
this, Xiao Xing Yun? Ha ha ha…”
Xiao Xing Yun sounded furious, “So, you’re going all out? Everyone, use
everything you’ve got, and cut that bastard up with your swords!”
After that, there was a sound denoting the clash of several weapons.
However, a weak sounding mournful cry arose in the distance soon after.
It was then that the Third Elder spoke in a resolute manner, “Come!
Accompany me! Ha ha ha…”
There was a violent explosion accompanied by a succession of
A drop of tear flowed out from Mu Xue Tong’s eyes.
He knew what this meant…
Han Fei Yun had sacrificed his life in that explosion.
[The Third Elder hasn’t even left his body intact to stall time for us…
to stall for only a little more time…]
Mu Xue Tong rushed through the dense and snowy pine forest with a
‘whooshing’ sound along with Han Yan Meng. He left faint footprints that
lead to three directions. Then, he took a deep breath and used his entire
strength to fly high. He flew for over two-fifty meters as a result. He
looked around for a second. Then, he descended downwards behind a cliff
that lay ahead. They then disappeared behind the cliff….
This diversion was the best way to escape.
Xiao Xing Yun arrived in extreme hurry after a while. He looked around
very carefully at first. Then, he waved his hand in anger, “Search very
carefully! The snow has footprints on it! So, they couldn’t have gone
far! Divide the teams, and carefully follow the three tracks! That little
traitor is all that’s left now, and he hasn’t suffered enough! Look
everywhere! Search every bit of land! Dig out three feet of snow if
necessary! They don’t need to be left alive if found they’re found! Kill
them without mercy!”
The Young Master Jun lay down to sleep. He had a good nap, and slept
through till the next day. He felt like he hadn’t had such a satisfying
sleep in a good while.
Little Ke kept guard at his door. However, the little girl acted very
diligently and responsibly. So, no one went inside to disturb his sleep.
It wasn’t until noon the next day that someone came-in with news. It was
about Baili Luo Yun. He had returned to meet the Young Master. Jun Mo Xie
stretched his body for a moment, and sat up. He then muttered, “He has
arrived three days earlier than I had expected!” he stood up after he had
spoken those words. Then, he spoke, “I’ll meet the youngster myself!”
Bali Luo Yun’s entire body was dusty. So, the talented youngster looked
travel-worn when Jun Mo Xie went to meet him. His face looked wind-beaten
and exhausted. But, his expression had still remained resolute. In fact,
it was as sharp as a spear’s tip. Moreover, his body had a somewhat
ruthless aura about it.
The young expert emanated a very cold, dense, and awe-inspiring aura as
he stood there. And, the Jun Household’s guards felt great unease because
of it. In fact, they couldn’t help but be vigilant against it. The guards
who kept watch at the Jun Household’s doors were merely ordinary
soldiers. However, they were still veterans of numerous battles. So, one
could well-imagine the grandeur and tyranny of an aura that could make
them feel so uneasy…
A thin line of light flashed in Baili Luo Yun’s eyes when he saw that Jun
Mo Xie had come to meet him in person. So, he solemnly cupped his fist
and said, “I’m back Young Master!”
“Welcome back!” Jun Mo Xie gave a faint smile, and asked, “How’re things
“I’ve killed those fifty people. There was no trace left in those
places… except for those verses you had mentioned,” Baili Luo Yun had
spoken with a trace of indifference. But, even that indifference had
contained incomparable confidence and pride.
“You did great! Thanks for the hard work!” Jun Mo Xie patted his
shoulder, “I’ve set aside a place for you. Go and rest. Other matters can
wait!” Jun Mo Xie frowned since Baili Luo Yun’s disposition hadn’t been
rectified. And, the Young Master had clearly sensed the pride he had
given his report with.
[This is unacceptable… An assassin with such pride…? How is that a
“Young Master… What about my… my father… he…” Baili Luo Yun’s
head sank as he spoke-up with some hesitation.
“I said that the other things can wait. Didn’t you hear?” Jun Mo Xie’s
expression was profound. His eyes then looked meaningfully at Baili Luo
Yun while emanating absolute authority.
Baili Luo Yun understood the meaning of this. His complexion became green
as he said respectfully, “This Luo Yun will do as you bid!”
Jun Mo Xie laughed windily, “I know that you ask this out of filial piety
towards your father. But, this is the only time I’ll allow it. This
mustn’t happen again!”
Baili Luo Yun’s expression turned extremely respectful as he said, “Many
thanks, Young Master!”
“An Emperor is never short of hungry soldiers. I promised you something,
and I’ve obviously fulfilled it… They entered Tian Xiang City three
days ago. Moreover, I’ve made residential arrangements for your esteemed
father. You don’t need to worry about your father. In fact, you might as
well take a look. Follow me!” Jun Mo Xie walked forth, and led him to the
Baili Luo Yun was a smart man. He only needed to be given an indication,
and that was enough for him to understand. There was no need to explain
any further. He’d understand everything well-enough.
There was an impressive house not far from the Jun Manor.
“The Luo Yun House!”
Those big and golden characters hung glittering in the sunshine. They
appeared glorious in gold.
There were many guards at the gate. They were full of vigor, and had
Baili Luo Yun’s father sat on a chair at the center of the courtyard. He
wore a luxurious black leather gown, and his face was brimming with
satisfaction and happiness. There was a pretty young maid behind him, and
she was massaging his shoulders in a diligent manner. Several servants
were busy cleaning the courtyard.
Baili Luo Yun was pleasantly surprised to find his father’s complexion
much better than before. His complexion was robust and rosy. And, each
bit of him had a healthy luster to it. In fact, it seemed like the man
had been reborn. He seemed to have become younger by a few years. Even
the wrinkles on his face had receded by a fair margin.
“This is your home — Baili Luo Yun’s home,” Jun Mo Xie smiled as he
“My home…” Baili Luo Yun was astonished.
He had a home and a family in the past. But, that ‘home’ of the Baili
Family was a place of bitter memories for him. It had been a cage which
was hard to escape from. He had never harbored a sense of home towards it.
[How could I ever have thought that I would have a home here? A brand new
home at that! A home only for my father and me…]
Baili Luo Yun’s heart felt warm as he looked at the flowers and trees in
the courtyard. It was a wintry November at this time, but the young man
still felt warm.
His previously ice-cold heart had suddenly warmed up!
Jun Mo Xie smiled faintly, and walked out in a calm manner. He had left
Baili Luo Yun to experience the new-found gifts of having his own home.
The Young Master obviously understood such a feeling. Therefore, he
didn’t disturb the youngster.
Baili Luo Yun became emotional, and rushed out after a moment. His
expression became solemn, and his body straightened as he saw Jun Mo Xie.
Then, he kneeled in a serious manner.
Jun Mo Xie used his left hand to support Baili Luo Yun. He had obviously
realized that Baili Luo Yun had intended to kneel and bow in patronage.
So, he spoke-up in a melodious voice, “What are you doing? I’ll obviously
make proper arrangements for you since you’re working for me. I’ve done
this so that you don’t have to worry. This is the natural order of
things. So, don’t do this. I want a reliable subordinate. But, I don’t
want you to kowtow like an insect!” He then stiffly pulled him up.
“Maybe the Young Master feels he ought to do it. But, this is like a
heaven-sent favor for me,” Baili Luo Yun spoke solemnly as he stared at
Jun Mo Xie. His gaze had filled with reverence for the first time aside
from when he had awed at Jun Mo Xie’s strength.
“But, you needn’t do this! Please understand one thing, Luo Yun. You
don’t need to say much. You also understand matters. So, we might as well
speak openly about this. I won’t reward you if you become useless to me.
And, you must realize that your value isn’t limited to a house! We still
have to rampage over the entire world! And, I need your skills for that!
Remember what I had said earlier — that was the only time. This
shouldn’t happen again!” Jun Mo Xie spoke slowly.
His words had been blunt. Perhaps a bit unpleasant as well…
But, Baili Luo Yun knew that it was genuine truth. And, that had made
these words pleasant to hear.
Everyone dreams about good things falling in their laps from the heavens.
But, no one ever think about why it should happen. Why would good things
ever fall in one’s laps? Why would anyone reward oneself if they don’t
have any skill or haven’t done anything of significance?
This is exactly the reason why one gives presents to the government
official, and not a farmer. After all, an official can do the work which
a farmer can’t. Obviously, it’ll be a different matter if one looks at
his flower of a daughter…
However, understanding is truth one thing. And, being able to state it so
frankly is another. Moreover, doing what one has said was a different
matter altogether. [Don’t the big families have hundreds of talented
fighters in their ranks? Even the richest man in the world may die while
paying for their subordinates’ expenses of each talented individual was
assigned a house full of servants…]
[The Jun Family has many peerless experts. So, why is the Young Master
taking care of me in this manner? Don’t tell me that I’m more useful than
those old foxes… or even a Sky Xuan expert?] Baili Luo Yun lacked the
self-confidence when it came to this matter.
Therefore, Baili Luo Yun nodded in a solemn manner, and didn’t show how
moved he was again. Instead, he spoke-up firmly, “I understand.”
“Ah… excellent! It seems that you’ve forged ahead in your Xuan
strength’s ranks as well! You were at Jade Xuan Peak the last time I saw
you. But, you’re at the peak of Earth Xuan’s lower level now! You will be
at the middle rank of Earth Xuan after one more step! This rate of
progress is quite fast. It’s indeed lightning fast!” Jun Mo Xie looked
over, and spoke-up somewhat flabbergasted.
“This is thanks to those divine pills from the Young Master. I had broken
through the blocked of Jade Xuan after I took that pill. And, I was able
to advance to the Earth Xuan Realm. I continued to absorb the strength of
the medicine for some time. And, even I found it difficult to believe
that taking a pill could make me advance so greatly. It’s genuinely a
Baili Luo Yun again looked emotional the moment that topic was brought
up. His limbs trembled in excitement as he recalled the moment when that
earthen color had dazzled on his body for the first time. He couldn’t
help but become red.
[My divine pill should increase a person’s cultivation by ten years,
right? However, his breakthrough goes against the usual norm!]
Jun Mo Xie stared wide eyed. He gaped, but remained silent. [What kind of
person is he? Many of men had taken that pill before. But, no one had
advanced levels in such a terrifying manner. Yet, this guy has advanced
so much with only one pill? He made it to the breakthrough. That’s
possible. But, he went even forward until he reached the peak of the next
[This speed is amazing!]
This advancement was still far short of the seven-eight levels Jun Mo Xie
could advance in a single time. But, Jun Mo Xie understood the difference
[I can jump more than ten levels in one go. But, that’s because I have
the ultimate cheat-tool — the Hong Jun Pagoda! So, my body’s aura can
be replenished anytime and everywhere. But, this Baili Luo Yun has
nothing. He only has innate skill. But, this kind of innate skill is not
[It is worth it to invest a lot in such an innate talent. The only bad
thing about this youngster is that he still can’t follow strict orders.
But, this important rule can be established slowly and steadily.]
[After all, the canal is formed when the water flows.]
“There’s a new task for you. You will be responsible for training your
body’s overall development this time.” Jun Mo Xie handed Baili Luo Yun
some loose papers. These papers had a few body poses along with some
notes on them. Each posture was extremely odd… almost exceeding the
limits of the human body’s ability to adapt.
Baili Luo Yun took a quick glimpse of the paper. And, he couldn’t help
his eyes from flashing. An average person would look at these postures,
and would find them outlandish and undoable. However, Baili Luo Yun was a
genius at martial arts. Moreover, he possessed excellent comprehension
ability. So, even a quick glance was enough for him to assess that these
postures contained endless potential.
Baili Luo Yun genuinely thirsted to improve his strength. So, this was
the best and biggest rewards for him.
Baili Luo Yun had been slaughtering people the entire journey here. And,
he had gradually started to enjoy it as well. Therefore, he was quite
satisfied with things. However, he had always enjoyed the process of
increasing his strength in a gradual and procedural manner.
Therefore, Baili Luo Yun didn’t hesitate, and agreed to it without a
“Here is a list of names. I want you to memorize them. You must kill one
of these people after every three days you spend in training.” The glint
of a cruel light flashed in Jun Mo Xie’s eyes, “You decide who you’ll
kill first. These men are our enemies! However, there isn’t much of a
hurry when it comes to dealing with them. So, we can clean them up
slowly. There is no urgency. Do you understand?” Jun Mo Xie said slowly.
Baili Luo Yun nodded slowly while taking the precious papers into his
“I want you to reach the Earth Xuan Peak in three months,” Jun Mo Xie
moved his hands behind his back as he said these words lightly. “I will
help you break through from Earth Xuan Level when the time comes. I will
get you to the first ranks of the Sky Xuan Realm… maybe even higher!”
Baili Luo Yun trembled. But, there was a fiery light in his eyes.
Jun Mo Xie returned to his courtyard, and heard Guan Qing Han play her
flute in her area next doors. The music was mournful. It still emanated a
heavy pressure. In fact, it emanated an unbearably heavy pressure….
Jun Mo Xie sighed and shook his head. His gaze then fixated on the two
crazed figures that were inside his courtyard at this time. They were the
two young kids who had previously nipped at their fingers to write their
Those two kids didn’t have a tongue, and one of them didn’t even have an
arm. Moreover, it was the right arm.
He had given them a training manual before he had gone to the Southern
Heaven City. The level of training was three to four times of what
children their age could endure. Moreover, the foundation of their bones
weren’t good. So, their prospects weren’t good even if they trained with
everything they had.
However, Jun Mo Xie was surprised to find that these two children had
somehow persisted even though they appeared so thin that they would get
blown away by a gust of wind. In fact, they had somehow increased their
capacity to train by three to four times.
It could be said that the Spirit Devourers and Heaven Destroyers were
training to their limits. However, these two kids were training
themselves to the edge of their lives by the same analogy. They would
train four times a day, and they wouldn’t stop unless they felt that they
would die. Moreover, they would resume training the moment they felt that
even a little strength had return to their bodies.
And, they had been doing this for the last three months!
They had already broken the wooden pikes that Jun Mo Xie had grounded for
them. In fact, they had done so several times.
Jun Mo Xie felt a cool feeling in his heart when he saw the two going
ahead with his training.
It had surprisingly come as a surprise to Jun Mo Xie. After all, the
Young Master was also a human at the end of the day. He had experienced
two lives, and he had a cheat-tool like the Hong Jun Pagoda. But, he
still nurtured the same expectations another person would. Therefore, he
would also be amazed by things that were beyond his expectations.
Those two eleven and twelve year old kids were very weak, but they seemed
like wolves when they fought.
Two very hungry wolves at that!
There was no hesitation from their part. And, they showed no mercy
either. Every punch and every kick could be called fatal. One of them
would often get kicked down, and would be left to struggle on the ground
for a while as a result. However, the other would only look-on with a
cold and unflinching glare. There was no scope for helping the other in
getting back to their feet. In fact, the fallen kid would be given a few
And, the fallen kid would also get up to fight back the moment his
opponent eased up. The two would continue to batter each other every day
in this manner. They wouldn’t even spare each other’s throats; nor the
solar plexus… They would even batter the area between each other’s legs.
Attacking that area without any misgivings could genuinely kill a
The two knew that should’ve been helping each other. But, now wasn’t the
time to do so. Instead, now was the time to fight a decisive battle.
After all, they would be killed by others in the future if they couldn’t
endure this training now. And, wasn’t it better to die by one’s brother’s
The training undertaken by those two was simply shocking.
These two kids’ innate talents differed very greatly from that of Baili
Luo Yun’s. However, the same couldn’t be said for the murderous aura
these two kids exuded from their bodies. In fact, their ruthlessness was
even more prominent in comparison.
Those three had an assassin’s disposition, and Jun Mo Xie had discovered
this. In fact, they’d make for the three great assassins!
Old Man Jun had visited these kids once. However, he hadn’t been able to
forget their frightening nature and training even after he had returned
to his study…
In fact, Old Man Jun had said that those two kids weren’t even human. A
General who had waged battles his entire life had been left this shocked
by their training. This showed how fierce their training was…
Jun Mo Xie’s courtyard had been clean before he had left. In fact, the
ground had become as strong as steel after the ferocious spiritual
strength he had unleashed some time ago. But, he found the ground was
full of potholes now. The magnitude of change wasn’t very great. But, it
was still damaged.
Moreover, that damage had been done by the bodies of those two kids.
Even heavy iron hammers may fail to do this kind of damage. However, the
bodies of these two kids had managed to do this over the course of their
training in the last three months. So, it could be seen what condition
their training had reached by now…
Jun Mo Xie sighed at first. Then, he clapped his hands and said, “Come
here, you two.”
Jun Mo Xie was surprised when the two came over. They had grown a bit
taller. Their muscles had also hardened. However, they had an expression
in their eyes which belied their indifference towards life. And, this had
surprised Jun Mo Xie more than anything else.
The two kneeled in unison, and lowered their heads in respect. This was
their set-greetings to Jun Mo Xie. The Young Master had told them not to
do this. But, they never changed, and had continued to do this. The Young
Master also knew their stubborn personalities. So, he had let it slide…
“Get up. I want to see how far your bodies have been trained,” Jun Mo Xie
extended his hand. Then, he released his spiritual sense, and checked
their meridians. He sighed lightly at his observation.
The two kids were training extremely hard. No one could deny that. Their
bodily strength and coordination had made great progress.
However, the two kids’ innate restrictions were still there.
The innate talent of those two was much lower than that of Baili Luo
Yun’s. In fact, the difference was that of the sky and the ground… or
the heaven and earth…
Jun Mo Xie felt that he would need to refine a different kind of medicine
He fished out two ‘Ten Years Dan’ from his chest pockets, “Take these!
Then, practice your Xuan cultivation practice accordingly.”
Their innate talents were meagre. And, they only had three months of
foundation in their support. So, these two would suffer immense pain if
they were to take these pills so rashly. In fact, the pain would be
tenfold of what an average person would suffer. But, Jun Mo Xie had
realized that these two kids’ nature was quite fierce after he had seen
[Others wouldn’t be able to endure it. But, those two little kids
It could be said that these two kids would see very quickly results once
they had ingested these Ten Years Dans. However, these had begun their
Xuan cultivation only three months ago. Therefore, their cultivation was
only the beginning of the starting stages. In fact, they had only reached
the third level of Xuan Cultivation at this time. However, these Ten
Years Dan pills were in defiance of the natural order of things. And, the
absorption of their efficacy would prove to be an uncomfortable
experience even for a Silver Xuan expert…
However, their meridians would expand to an extreme degree if they willed
through it. The more one bears, the more one gains. For example, it would
make no difference to a Spirit Xuan expert if they took those pills.
There wouldn’t be much of a reaction. They would only absorb ten years’
worth of pure aura after ingesting the pills. That’s all.
But, these two kids had weak meridians. Therefore, using these pills
would give them a great start. In fact, it could even compensate for
their lack of innate talent.
The muscles of their bodies underwent a painful expansion as Jun Mo Xie
looked-on. Their gnashed teeth made loud ‘buzzing’ sounds. However, they
still pushed through it, and didn’t issue a single groan of pain. They
blindly and silently endured it. Even an adult wouldn’t have been able to
endure one-tenth of that pain…
They were sweating bullets!
Jun Mo Xie watched as their weak bodies shudder. However, Jun Mo Xie
suddenly remembered a knife-wielding technique when he saw that trembling
stump of arm — left-handed blade technique! Moreover, it was one-armed
This blade-wielding technique was extremely severe. In fact, it was a
This blade-based technique had been designed by a senior in his previous
life. That man’s swordsmanship was world-famous. His strength was even
more renowned. Unfortunately, his enemies had managed to ambush him one
day. And, they had chopped off his right hand at that time. But, they
deliberately didn’t kill him. After all, his skillset would be useless
since his right hand had been chopped off. So, he wouldn’t be able to use
it anymore. His enemies had obviously planned to cripple him so that they
could shame him in front of the entire world.
However, that man wasn’t discouraged. He took immense amounts of pain to
contemplate matters. And, he created an extremely powerful left-handed
blade-based technique after ten years of hard work. He then went back,
and killed his enemies after his blade-based technique was ready.
That man had been no match for his enemies even when he had been at the
peak of his prowess. However, his enemies weren’t even able to fight back
once he had designed and completed his new blade technique. And, this was
enough to assess the true hegemony of that technique.
However, that blade-technique was extremely dangerous. It was an
extremely strange method as well. It could cut the user’s body if they
weren’t careful. And, that’s because every chop against the enemy would
come from a very unexpected angle. This obviously made it very difficult
for the enemy to guard against the strikes. But, it was also quite
dangerous to practice as well.
However, this was the only method that kid with only one arm could use.
The other kid’s limbs were still intact. However, Jun Mo Xie had planned
to teach that other kid a very strange sword technique as well. The two
of them would form a very deadly force after they had combined their
blade-techniques in a harmonious manner.
The two kids had suffered the pain for an hour. They had lain twitching
on the ground during the later part of it. Even their sweat wasn’t
visible. In fact, they had clenched their teeth so hard that even the
root of their teeth had started to bleed!
The veins of their body had pulsated to their skin.
The two of them were still gnashing their teeth even though the severe
pain had ended by now. In fact, their muscles had become so taut that
they couldn’t even open their mouths…
The Young Master’s formidable spiritual power surged forth, and loosened
them up. The two finally opened their mouths, and saw each other’s pained
expression. They were covered in wisps of blood. But, their eyes were
filled with an expression of non-acceptance.
“This is a set of blade-wielding moves.” Jun Mo Xie conveniently grabbed
a blade. He held it in his left hand, and raised it as he said, “This
will suit you!”
The face of the one-armed kid became fervent as he heard this. And, he
watched Jun Mo Xie’s every move with careful attention. His eyes were
opened wide. He didn’t even dare to blink in fear of missing some minute
Jun Mo Xie moved slowly. His Xuan strength circulated under his feet as
he moved, and left shallow footprints on the hard ground. He then moved
into the same track marks as he demonstrated that technique for a second
time, “Did you understand?”
The one-armed child nodded twice. His talent was very limited. He
wouldn’t have understood much of them technique even if it had been
displayed once again. In fact, he wouldn’t even have remembered many of
However, he had clearly understood Jun Mo Xie’s intentions — he could
practice this technique by re-tracing Jun Mo Xie’s footprints.
Then, Jun Mo Xie taught the other kid a different sword technique, and
told the two of them to practice. Suddenly, the guards came-in and
announced, “The Dugu Family has sent an invitation. They’ve invited the
Young Master for dinner today.”
Jun Mo Xie was stumped by this. [What? I’m invited for dinner? What’s
