Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-487
“Anyway… You had mentioned about cooperating…” Jun Mo Xie smiled
mischievously, “But, I don’t understand what your proposal means.” He
thought; [Your Tian Fa’s Beast Kings are already cooperating with me, and
you still don’t know about it? Silly girl!]
“That’s right! Let’s cooperate!” Mei Xue Yan’s expression was solemn,
“Tian Fa Forest needs to increase its strength. We need it for the fierce
fight between the Three Holy Lands; we need more strength to compete.
But, it’ll be too late if we follow the normal speed of advancement.
Therefore, we must make use of external forces to enhance our strength.”
Mei Xue Yan’s expression was dignified as she gave Jun Mo Xie a profound
look, “The supplement from our Tian Fa’s Sacred Fruit is an example of
that! But, there will only be one per person. And, that isn’t enough for
us. Moreover, we can’t make such medicines on our own. But, your master
can refine them. I’ve heard that he has already refined divine pills
which can increase Xuan strength by ten years. Moreover, these pills
don’t have any side-effects. We want such miraculous things. But, an
increase in strength by ten years seems too little for us.”
Jun Mo Xie frowned, “You mean to say that… you want more number of
pills once they’ve been refined from the Sacred Fruit. And, they should
obviously have no side-effects either. Then, you also want other such
pills. After that, you intend to use these pills to upgrade strength as
quickly as possible. You wish to get the Xuan Beast Kings across the
bottleneck. Then, you want to give them the other pills to get going
towards the next bottleneck. So, you’re basically saying that you want
the Beast Kings to have to successive breakthroughs so that they can rise
two ranks in the shortest possible time. Is this what you mean to say?”
“That’s correct! Intelligent people speak intelligent words! That’s
exactly what I meant.” Mei Xue Yan’s eyes filled with satisfaction. She
remained calm as she spoke further, “But, I couldn’t find your master.
So, I came to search for you.”
“I find your thought process ridiculous, Young Mei! In fact, it is
excessively fantastical. I’m sure you’re aware that your request will
create many problems for us. Let me tell you something — you are doomed
to fail in this fight even if Master comes out with such a miracle.”
Jun Mo Xie frowned, “You will realize this once you see the pills refined
from the Scared Fruit. First, you need a good amount of luck when it
comes to the refining of such pills. Secondly, you need lots of medicinal
ingredients at your disposal. Moreover, the medicinal herbs required for
such pills are top-notch. Thirdly, refining these kinds of pills takes a
lot of time. And lastly, the refining process demands a huge consumption
of energy. However, the final outcome still depends of the heaven’s will
even if these four requirements are fulfilled. The probability of success
or failure in refinement is always very hard to predict…
“In addition, the medicines that improve your strength have some
limitations as well. And, this point stands true without exception. It is
often noted that one’s body builds resistance to the stimulant provided
by these pills after your strength increases under its effect. This means
that you won’t be able to use the pills the second or the third time.
Think about it… the Ten Years Pills increases strength by ten years.
So, shouldn’t an individual be able to increase their strength
ten-thousand times by taking those pills continuously? But, that’s not
possible. So, I can only tell you that your thought process is downright
“You ought to understand one thing if you wish to increase strength that
quickly. You will need three kinds of pills during this period of time!
And, each pill must provide thirty years’ worth of strength upgrades.
Moreover, none of the pills can be the same as the other. This is the
only way you can reach your bottleneck targets. The pills from the Sacred
Fruit of Tian Fa will be able to help you in making the breakthroughs
only after these basic requirements are met!
“This is like saying that my master can’t do anything else for a long
time. He’ll only be refining pills for you this entire time. Didn’t you
feel that this is too excessive when you asked for it? Do you think that
my master is someone you can order-about as per your will?”
“I know that this is too much to ask for! And, I don’t even know what
kind of a person your master is! But, we have no other choice!” Mei Xue
Yan continued calmly, “After three years… No… it should be after two
years and nine months… The Three Holy Lands will fight after two years
and nine months. And, it wouldn’t matter which one of them we face if
things continue this way. After all, the Elusive World of the Immortals,
or the Great Golden City, or the Boundless Ocean of Blood — each of
them will easily defeat Tian Fa Forest if we go on as per our current
strength! Our Tian Fa has maintained its status for nine-thousand years.
And, the consequences would be too horrible if I… if my elder brother
loses this status!
“We Xuan Beasts have always been discriminated against in this big
continent! We’ve only been able to squeeze our ranks amongst the Three
Holy Lands by relying on our fiercely overbearing strength. However, the
Tian Fa Forest wouldn’t remain Tian Fa Forest if we lose this status!”
Mei Xue Yan had a somewhat pained and self-deprecating expression on her
face. And, Jun Mo Xie could tell that the situation would’ve crossed the
point of desperation if someone as strong as Mei Xue Yan had such an
expression on their face. [It seems that… they have nowhere to go…]
Jun Mo Xie frowned, and paced several steps. His heart was gripped in
endless hesitation. Jun Mo Xie knew that he was sure to have a lifelong
ally in Tian Fa Forest if he helped them with this. Therefore, the Jun
Family would be well-placed. Moreover, the lifespans of these Xuan Beasts
was very long. And, this meant that even their descendants won’t need to
worry about any troublesome situations long into the future. In fact,
it’ll be a boon for generations-after-generations of his descendants!
And, it would only cost him a few divine pills!
It sounded simple, but it had to be said that he could presently refine
only one kind of pill that met their requirements. And, others could only
be possible after he had advanced to the fourth and fifth level inside
the Hong Jun Pagoda. Moreover, he needed to be at the sixth level to
refine the pills from the Thousand Evils Ten Thousand Poisons Fruit —
or what these Xuan Beasts called as Tian Fa’s Sacred Fruit. However, that
heavenly treasure would turn into ash if he hadn’t met the necessary
conditions and capability standards.
[Can I break through to the sixth level within two years and nine months?]
Jun Mo Xie had no assurance regarding this. Jun Mo Xie was well-aware of
the difficulty in advancing one level inside the Hong Jun Pagoda and
advancing with the Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune.
It hadn’t even been a one year since he had come to that world. But, he
had already advanced by leaps and bounds. In fact, he had crossed three
levels in this short period of time. But, this achievement corresponded
to three starting levels. However, he would require an increasing amount
of time to make each breakthrough as he would go higher up. In fact, the
requirements might even multiply many-folds.
“I know that this is a bother for you and your master. But, our Tian Fa
will arrange any medicinal herb you require to concoct those pills as
long as you and your master agree to cooperate with us! It doesn’t matter
if they’re at the bottom of an ocean, or at the top of a snowy mountain.
It doesn’t matter whether the place is too hot, or it’s too cold —
we’ll give our all to assist you!” Mei Xue Yan put her hands behind her
back. “Moreover, we’ll agree to any conditions you set — no matter how
unreasonable or irrational. Any conditions!”
Jun Mo Xie’s heart thumped when he heard this.
It was Jun Mo Xie biggest dream to build himself an estate in the Tian Fa
Forest. After all, he wouldn’t have to worry about the problems of the
outside world once he had done so. Moreover, the Young Master Jun was
quite fond of the Beast Kings of Tian Fa Forest.
Their temperament was very much to Young Master Jun’s liking. He had
planned to help even if he wouldn’t benefit out of it. But, it now seemed
that he could also benefit from it. Moreover, his benefits would be huge.
This was an irresistible temptation for him.
Jun Mo Xie clenched his teeth. [Damn it! Power can’t be achieved without
pressure! Isn’t it only the sixth level of the Hong Jun Pagoda? This
Young Master can cross three levels in half-a-year. So, why can’t he
cross a further three in around two years?]
[Let’s do it! This is only a matter of forcing myself to train harder;
that’s all! And, I will get equally good dividends in terms of
enhancement of strength and extra benefits!]
“Well, I personally think that there’s no issue with this matter. But, I
need to consult my master. After all, the success or failure of this
depends upon my master’s desire. But, you be at ease. I’ll try my best to
facilitate this cooperation. However, it’s better if we discuss the
subject of our conditions a later date. After all, I can’t speak for my
master. In fact, I suppose that Young Mei wouldn’t believe me even if I
said that I do. Isn’t that right?” Jun Mo Xie changed the topic in a
blink of an eye. After all, he knew that he couldn’t reveal his hidden
cards at this time. [If I let these people know now that I’m that
mysterious and unrivalled black-clothed master…]
[The consequences would be too horrible!]
[All powerful enemies will flock to me. In fact, many people will try to
destroy me in my formative years even if they don’t have any enmity with
me. Therefore, this secret that I don’t have the strength to override the
world can’t be told to anyone; not even if the said-individual is very
dear to me!]
“I understand. Many thanks, Young Master Jun!” Mei Xue Yan’s lips
squirmed as she spoke in a low voice.
“But, what are these so-called Three Holy Lands? Could Young Mei possibly
clear this doubt of mine?” Jun Mo Xie had finally gotten the opportunity
to ask this question. It must be mentioned that this question had been
bothering Young Master Jun for a long time now.
It was possible that most common folk didn’t even know of existences like
the Silver Blizzard City and Xue Hun Manor. There were only a few Xuan
families in the society at large. However, even these Xuan families
regarded the Silver Blizzard City and the Xue Hun Manor as the top
entities of the world.
Even Jun Mo Xie hadn’t thought that there would be anything above the
Tian Fa Forest.
But, he had then found out that there was an even taller mountain in
existence; this was when he had learnt of the extremely fierce Three Holy
Lands. The Tian Fa Forest was known to everyone as the most dangerous
entity in the world. So, what were these Three Holy Lands?
It seemed like that these existences were even higher than the Silver
Blizzard City. And, this was enough to shock even Jun Mo Xie. In fact, he
had been wondering whether there were entities that were even higher than
the Three Holy lands…
[What level are those people at if they exist…?]
[But, the main question remains the same — why are there no legends
about these places?]
“The fierce Three Holy Lands… originated over nine-thousand years ago.
Everyone was vying for supremacy at that time. The continent was in chaos
as a result. So, it was only natural that increasingly stronger entities
were emerging in such an environment. After all, times of trouble often
give birth to many heroes. And, the heroes also created specific
circumstances,” Mei Xue Yan forced a smile as she slowly explained.
“However, an extremely unforeseen event occurred in the continent at the
most opportune moment.” Mei Xue Yan took a deep breath. “Have you ever
heard of the ‘Pillars of Heaven Mountains’, Jun Mo Xie?”
