Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-464
[Is the Dugu Family is looking for me to talk about Dugu Xiao Yi’s
marriage?] This was the only possibility that came into Jun Mo Xie’s
mind. [How will I face it if they raise the issue of an engagement?]
The invitation card spoke very clearly. It was quite concise and
comprehensive. It only had one sentence, “The Jun Family’s Mo Xie is
requested to come to the Dugu Family’s Manor for a visit,” The
inscription unexpectedly bore Dugu Zong Heng’s name.
The handwriting was very clumsy. In fact, it was almost unsightly. But,
the tip of the writing brush seemed to have been full of hostility. It
was bold and uncouth. So, it was evident that Dugu Zong Heng had
personally written it.
This was an exceptionally simple invitation card. But, it portrayed the
importance the Dugu Family had attached this meeting. It also depicted
Old Man Dugu Zong Heng had written it himself. And, this was enough to
tell the importance they attached to it. But, the concise wordings
pointed straight to the heart of the matter. So, that one sentence belied
their helplessness and unwillingness regarding the meeting.
The Young Master secretly made his calculations. [The Dugu Family would
also wish to re-establish the little girl’s reputation apart from talking
about my marriage to her, right?] After all, that girl had returned in
front of everyone with a big belly. It was one thing to joke about it.
However, wouldn’t any resolute person find it odd that her belly had
become that big in only three or four months? But, the fact remained that
the little girl’s reputation had been ruined. And, this point had also
touched Jun Mo Xie.
The Jun and the Dugu Family could be considered well-matched as far as
the facts were concerned. In fact, there were no others who were better
matched. But, the Dugu Family would never allow their only granddaughter
to be a concubine. In fact, it wouldn’t matter to them even if they knew
that Dugu Xiao had still retained her chastity. Moreover, they wouldn’t
understand that Jun Mo Xie only cared about Guan Qing Han.
It was extremely necessary for them to establish the little girl as the
first woman. Guan Qing Han had sacrificed her virtue to save the Young
Master. And, it was pleasant to say this… But, she had been the Young
Master’s elder sister-in-law at one point of time. Therefore, there would
always be some social trouble in the name of Jun Mo Xie’s elder brother
even if he were to undertake the wedding ceremonies with her. After all,
Guan Qing Han’s past status would never allow her to become his true
wife. However, the little girl had great relations with Guan Qing Han.
So, it would make for a good arrangement if the little girl was the first
wife, and Guan Qing Han was the concubine.
Jun Mo Xie frowned. [This must be why the Dugu Family is looking for me
However, wasn’t Old Man Dugu looking for the wrong person? Shouldn’t he
have been looking for Jun Zhan Tian instead of Jun Mo Xie? After all, Jun
Zhan Tian was the figurehead of the Jun Family. Moreover, the matter of a
youngster’s marriage must be brought to their parents and grandparents
Moreover, Jun Mo Xie wasn’t someone who could face Dugu Zong Heng this
After all, his status wasn’t sufficient.
Jun Mo Xie was currently covered in fame, and had experienced rampant
military success. However, this wasn’t good enough.
This aspect of status has nothing to do with one’s personal strength.
Instead, it was the natural order of respect amongst men. The Young
Master was a youngster even if he had become wise during his two lives.
Moreover, marriage was a major turning point in one’s life, and Jun Mo
Xie had no experience in this matter.
Jun Mo Xie folded the invitation card. He didn’t know whether to laugh or
Jun Zhan Tian confronted Jun Mo Xie’s misgivings after he heard about
this. However, the Old Man only curled his lips as he disdainfully spoke,
“What’s so strange about this, Dear Little Grandson? It seems that Old
Dugu Zong Heng had no choice but to come to this after he heard the roars
of that tigress at his home. I reckon that it’s that tigress who intends
to see you in person. That old fool Zong Heng wouldn’t have called you in
any other scenario. I assume that he’s still unwilling to invite you on
his own… That’s all there is to it… Anyway, aren’t you usually very
bold and daring? So, why are you acting so timid and fearful now? Get
lost, and don’t trouble this old man’s training!”
It had to be said that the two old men had been interacting their whole
lives. So, they had developed a good understanding of each other’s
thought processes. And, Old Man Jun could speculate the truth by merely
giving it a second’s thought.
Moreover, his speculation wasn’t even close to the facts — it was
exactly the same as the facts!
The old man heartlessly expelled the overly-suspicious youngster with his
final words. He then continued with his cultivation and training. After
all, the opportunity to make such a breakthrough was rare to come by. So,
wouldn’t he wish to stabilize his newly attained realm as soon as
Jun Mo Xie smiled bitterly, and suddenly discovered a thick stack of
papers on the old man’s desk. They were folded open. And, it was evident
that these were the secret reports that had been brought by the messenger
The one on the top read, “The western province’s magistrate has been
killed at his home. It is suspected that he was killed by the assassin
—’Drifting Cloud’. This assassin has been recently wreaking havoc. The
assassin only left behind a verse of a poem, ‘Good and evil will
eventually be distinguished. Heaven’s justice can’t be escaped’. So, it
seems like the work of that ‘Drifting Cloud’ only…”
Below that was a short reply in Jun Zhan Tian’s handwriting…
The next one was mostly similar. Jun Mo Xie counted. There were fifty of
them. Not a single extra. And, each of them was regarding the fifty
people Baili Luo Yun had killed.
Jun Mo Xie could only sigh. [Such an efficient intelligence system is
remarkably desirable. Baili Luo Yun has barely arrived in Tian Xiang
City. But, a summary of his actions are compiled here. Moreover, the Old
Man has already read everything. This shows that the information had
arrived before Baili Luo Yun.]
The Jun Family controlled this intelligence network. However, it was a
pity that its real master was the Imperial Family of Tian Xiang Empire.
In fact, it wasn’t under the Jun Family’s influence by any means. This
meant that this network would become useless in case of a feud. Moreover,
it would also become a huge problem.
Jun Mo Xie frowned. He put the sheets back to their original place, and
slowly walked out. He had barely exited when a guard hurried over. The
guard was followed by a grotesque-looking fat individual.
Jun Mo Xie was shocked at first. He was almost unable to recognize Tang
Yuan. He hadn’t seen the Fatty for three months. But, he had become even
fatter now. Moreover, it wasn’t like he had become a little fatter — he
had accumulated several more layers of fat around him!
Tang Yuan was merely round in the past. But, he looked like a triangle
now. His huge head appeared like a sharp point while the rest of his body
spread out to the sides.
“Third Young…” Tang Yuan became excited and emotional when he saw him.
He pounced as he came over while panting. It seemed that the Fatty wanted
to give him a bear-hug.
“Stop!” Jun Mo Xie jumped in fright. “What are you doing these days? And,
how did you become so fat?” He looked his counterpart over, and frowned.
“You could at least see the back of your legs earlier. But, even that
isn’t possible anymore!”
“Ah… Don’t you say…!” Tang Yuan put-on an expression of misery, “Your
brother has been suffering this entire time. I was forced to lose weight
over these months…”
“What? Forced to lose weight…? Bullshit!” Jun Mo Xie exclaimed, “Did
forcing you to lose weight result in you reducing it from one-fifty kilos
“Wrong!” Tang Yuan addressed Jun Mo Xie’s mistake in a serious manner. “I
wouldn’t have been so depressed if it had been two-hundred. It has
reduced to two-hundred-and-sixty from one-eighty…”
“I… fu*k!” Jun Mo Xie couldn’t close his gaping mouth. A long while
passed before he shouted, “You went from one-eighty to
two-hundred-and-sixty in only three months… that’s over eighty kilos!
Damn! Even a pig won’t gain so much after eating itself fat for three
“Pig…?” Tang Yuan spoke with annoyance. “I have a special reason for
“What special reason? Don’t tell me…” Jun Mo Xie blinked. It had to be
said that Fatty Tang’s body type couldn’t be described as “fat” anymore.
The word appropriate would be “horrifying” now…
“That vile woman Sun Xiao Mei has been forcing me to lose weight every
day!” Tang Yuan wanted to cry, but no tears came out, “She whips me every
morning, and shouts at me to run! She chases me, and makes me work out
every day when I have nothing to do. And, not one person takes my side at
home! In fact, everyone chases me along with that vile woman! How did my
life become so hard? Someone even follows me to the Aristocratic Hall to
“I still don’t understand. After all, everyone is trying to get you to
lose weight. Moreover, these are very effective and regular methods to
lose weight. So, how are you still like this?” Jun Mo Xie became even
“Exercise is exercise, Brother. But, I get hungry after I exercise! In
fact, very hungry… I almost starve!” Tang Yuan gnashed his teeth and
shouted, “I get hungry after every work out! I used to have three meals a
day before I started this weight-loss thing. And, one meal used to
contain six steamed buns back in the day. But, I have nine meals a day
nowadays! And, one meal has ten steamed buns! And, that doesn’t include
the midnight snacks…”
Jun Mo Xie nearly fell down. A black line appeared across his face. [This
man… must be a legend, right?]
“Of course… getting fatter makes sense!” Jun Mo Xie nodded repeatedly.
His face was full of amazement, “No wonder you’ve become so wondrously
huge in this short period of three months! It is very… reasonable.
After all, you have such a strong justification for it. In fact, it
would’ve been bewildering if you hadn’t gotten fatter…”
“Exactly!” Tang Yuan sighed as he comforted his belly, “I could at least
hold my belly in my arms in the past. But, I can’t even do that now…”
“It seems that we still need some tougher exercise…”Jun Mo Xie’s face
was full of regret.
“You still want to toughen the exercises? I’ll break through
three-hundred kilos if you make them any tougher…” Tang Yuan looked
unhappy. He gave a lowly look to Jun Mo Xie. Then, he again became very
excited, “Anyway, we’ve created a miracle, Third Young Master! Your pills
have sold for extremely high prices in these past three months! Moreover,
it’s unceasingly breaking records these days! The bottles you had left
behind have turned into a treasure trove! We’ve made about
nine-hundred-million shining-white silvers! And, this is only
Aristocratic Hall’s share! The Little Prince’s share isn’t included in
this! His share has already been delivered to him…”
“What the…? Nine-hundred-million? Nine-hundred-million…?” Jun Mo Xie
was thoroughly shocked by the immensity of this number. It’s not that he
had never seen money before. In fact, he had expected that those
medicines would sell for a lot. But, he had never expected them to be so
[I can conveniently prepare eight to ten bottles of those medicines. But,
wouldn’t I be able to make hundreds of million with my fingertips if
genuinely got down to business? Has this world lost its mind? Isn’t this
too much of an exaggeration…?]
“Moreover, I haven’t even auctioned the medicines you sent recently —
the Bone Tempering Pills.” Tang Yuan mysteriously raised a finger. “Would
it work out, Young Master? Are you sure that it’s fine to auction it?”
