Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-537
The fourth day was even more awful. Tang Yuan looked through the archway,
and saw that he had only been given three steamed rolls for meal. He
devoured them in the blink of an eye. But, he wasn’t satisfied yet.
[Abstaining from meat is harder than one would expect! There’s a lot of
vegetarian food here. But, I can’t help but starve no matter how much I
eat of it!]
Fatty Tang suddenly noticed that his belly had reduced to a great extent
by the fifth day. In fact, he could even see his toes now. His two eyes
were now visible in their proper shape; they had only been peeping out of
a seam earlier. However, they were entirely exposed now…
Tang Yuan got very excited when he noticed this. So, he ran to the
weighing scale that was used for weighing animals. Two burly men came to
raise the weights as he stood on it. And, he was pleasantly surprised to
find out that his body’s weight had dropped.
The measuring needle had stopped at the frightening number of 265kgs five
days ago. But, this weight had come out to be only 185kgs at this time.
This meant that his weight had decreased by 80 Kgs in only five days!
Tang Yuan’s surprise couldn’t be described in words. [This is extremely
frightful, right? How is it even possible! Am I Dreaming? I wouldn’t even
think about something this good in a dream!]
However, his ineffable surprise was interrupted by an unexpected
And, his extreme joy turned to sorrow when this happened. Two big men
showed-up at the Aristocratic Hall’s gate. Moreover, they held long
knives in their hands. They then pointed their weapons at Tang Yuan, and
roared, “That’s the Fatty! Let’s kill him!”
Tang Yuan simply couldn’t comprehend the situation. [Who could they be?
Is it possible that the Huang Family has hired assassins?] However, it
was useless to think about these things in the current situation.
Therefore, he turned around, and broke into a run. And, those two burly
men also began to chase after him since they weren’t willing to let go of
him. Tang Yuan was shouting for help on top of his voice while running.
However, the guard-posts were somehow empty at this time even though the
security at the Aristocratic Hall was very tight on normal days.
Tang Yuan had been rendered helpless because of this. Therefore, he ran
towards the garden without a better alternative. Then, he started to run
in circles around the buildings in the Aristocratic Hall’s courtyard.
Those two huge men also started after him. They screamed on top of their
voices as they chased after him while holding their cold and glittering
sword high. However, it could be assumed that their knowledge of martial
arts was very poor. After all, they hadn’t even realized that they could
use a pincer-attack method in this case! Instead, they simply ran after
him in an attempt to overtake catch him.
Fatty’s running speed wasn’t that good. But, nothing great could be said
about the speeds of the two men either. The two men had been running at a
distance of 4 or 5 feet behind Tang Yuan’s body the entire time.
Moreover, they had been constantly yelling whilst striving to strike him
in vain. However, one of them was able to approach closer at one point.
And, he had slashed at the Fatty’s back in that instance. This attack had
slashed open a big gash in Fatty’s robes, and blood had begun to ooze out
of the wound. The Fatty had obviously been left to scream in pain as a
====>https://lightnovel.site/ for a better experience
Fatty wailed loudly. The pain obviously made him run faster; there was a
look of terror on his face. [Oh God. This is terrible. Is this how I’m
going to die?] Fatty began to run even faster in a fit desperation for
the fear of death…
The two men blindly went-on yelling and abusing at him from behind, “We
will squeeze all that fat from your body! Then, we will use it make a
lantern out of it!” Their curses made it evident for Tang Yuan that they
had been hired by the Huang Family to take revenge upon him…
And, this made the Fatty run even faster out of fear. In fact, he had
been scared so witless that his brain had left his skull, and his soul
had left his body… [Oh crap! I have to shortage of gold if they had
wanted money! But, they’re here for revenge… They’re here for my life!]
Fatty started to run even faster in desperation. He was aware of his
situation. So, he knew his own speed as well. He knew that they could
catch him if he stopped for even a little while. In fact, he didn’t even
dare to look back…
He soon found himself gasping for breath and sweating profusely. His legs
felt heavy as if they had been loaded with lead. His throat felt pumped
out like a bellow. However, those messengers of death were still chasing
him, and didn’t seem willing to stop. So, how could the Fatty stop and
get slaughtered like livestock? Therefore, he bravely continued to run
faster with those swollen feet. Then, Fatty suddenly felt a burst of
relaxation in his entire body; he suddenly felt an ineffable strength in
his legs. Consequently, Tang Yuan rejoiced and continued to run like a
Jun Mo Xie, Hai Chen Feng, and Song Shang were on the rooftop at this
time. The three individuals stood in a circle, and were merrily chatting
while cracking melon seeds. They didn’t seem worried about anything.
However, Jun Mo Xie suddenly felt astounded at something, and began to
speak, “Oh, this is interesting! This Fatty has made a breakthrough! This
is amazing! Isn’t it?” However, Hai Chen Feng and Song Shang were amazed
by this since they were unable to understand what he was talking about…
Meanwhile, Tang Yuan was running violently. And, he was constantly
screaming out of panic. He kept calling for help, but couldn’t find
anyone. So, he kept running for his life. He felt as if there was no
strength left in his legs at one time. But then, he suddenly felt as if
his strength had revived-enough to allow him to run again. Then, he again
felt as if his strength had vanished and he couldn’t run. Yet again, his
strength revived, and he could… Thereupon, this cycle continued for
seven or eight times in total…
His energy eventually got drained in its entirety. So, he fell down to
the ground since he was too exhausted. His hands and feet twitched, and
he began to vomit blood. He then spoke-up in desperation, “Do whatever
you want to do… but… But, give me a good end…” he passed out after
he had said this.
The two burly men dropped their weapons with a ‘clanging’ sound after the
Fatty fainted. They then bent down, and propped their hands against their
knees for support. Then, they stuck out their tongues, and started to
pant so heavily that it seemed as if their organs would drop out. They
complained to themselves as they gasped; [Young Master… You killed
us… How can this Fatty run like this… He didn’t stop the entire
morning… Oh God…]
The entire circuit they had been running on had been drenched in sweat by
However, Jun Mo Xie felt satisfied at his initial success. So, he came
down to take a look at the Fatty. Then, he smiled and said, “That’s fine.
He has once again resumed to his state from five days ago. That’s good.
You will continue doing as I say. Continue to prohibit him from eating
fish and meat. It won’t be good if we make him dependent on those
Mysterious Yang Pills either. So, only give him one per day. Moreover,
the number of steamed buns in his daily meals shouldn’t exceed three…”
Jun Mo Xie left after he had said this.
Tang Yuan leisurely woke up, and found that a worried Song Shang was
sitting by his bedside. Song Shang said as soon as he woke up, “How did
this happen? I went out for a moment, and so much happened? Fortunately,
I came back in time. Else, those two men would’ve turned Young Master
Tang into a ghost! Even the guards have died… And, you would’ve been
buried alongside them if any mishap had happened!”
Tang Yuan felt that he was very lucky. Therefore, he thanked Song Shang
even though he didn’t have much strength left in his body. Then, he
finished a bowl of porridge, and went back to sleep. And, the same cycle
was repeated for another five days…
Fatty had revived his strength by the tenth day, and felt a lot better as
a result. However, he then recalled that he hadn’t seen Sun Xiao Mei for
quite a while now. So, he decided to visit the Sun Family’s residence.
However, he ran into a certain young man when he reached at the gate of
the Sun Family’s residence. This young man had oiled hair, and a powdered
face. Moreover, he was one of Tang Yuan’s former love-enemies, and was
said to have attempted wooing Sun Xiao Mei…
It must be mentioned that Sun Xiao Mei’s figure and beautiful face had
become extremely popular of late. Therefore, numerous good-looking men
had been trying to woo her. In fact, a multitude of men would come to woo
her from every part of the city…
That greasy-headed young man heard that the man standing in front of him
was Tang Yuan. And, he got extremely angry. However, he didn’t seem
inclined on starting a one-on-one fight either. So, he shouted out orders
to kill Tang Yuan without delay… Tang Yuan had also brought many
bodyguards along with him. However, his bodyguards fled the scene since
they had noticed that the situation wasn’t good. This meant that they had
left behind Young Master Tang to confront those shining swords by
Tang Yuan was struck dumb by this!
“Oh Crap! Why doesn’t all of this end! …Everyone… everywhere… is
waiting to kill me! I don’t have any other option…”
“But… to run!!”
Thus, Fatty turned his buttocks around without much of a choice, and ran
like a wild horse at full gallop. He ran wherever he could, and didn’t
think much about which road he chose. But, that young man was unwilling
to let go. Consequently, Tang Yuan was chased to every street of the
Capital City by that young man!
It was very strange that no officers or soldiers were present around to
intervene. Moreover, there was no one chivalrous-enough to show up in
order to fight against this injustice. Not a single one of Fatty’s
acquaintances could be spotted in the vicinity either. Furthermore, every
family in the city closed their doors upon him. Therefore, Tang Yuan had
no choice but to run from one street to the other…
Tang Yuan probably covered every street of the entire Tian Xiang City.
However, there eventually came a time when he wasn’t able to endure it
any further. So, he fell on the ground out of exhaustion, and couldn’t
get up again. In fact, he felt as if his body had been paralyzed.
However, it must be said that this condition was still slightly better
than the last time’s. After all, he didn’t faint this time. An individual
sharply spoke some words of righteousness at this ‘critical’ moment, “Who
dares to harm Young Master Tang? I’ll kill that man!”
This voice belonged to Hai Chen Feng.
The savior had finally arrived for the rescue!
Tang Yuan felt so grateful that he was… nearly moved to tears…
[He’s such a good man. Had my fat blinded my mind? Why did I order him
around like that in the past?]
The half-fainted Tang Yuan could hear a lot of screaming in the
background. This was also accompanied by sounds of clashing weapons.
Then, he heard someone shout, “This doesn’t look good… Everybody… run
for it!” This was followed by the sounds of people fleeing away without a
Hai Chen Feng picked Tang Yuan up, carried him on the shoulder, and began
to walk back. However, Hai Chen Feng didn’t feel that Tang Yuan’s weight
was much as it used to be…
Poor Young Master Tang Yuan had reached the verge of collapse after this
round of intimidation. His eyes had turned green. He was once again
served porridge after his return. So, Tang Yuan said with tears in his
eyes, “I feel like my intestines have squeezed-in due to starvation…
Can’t you give me something nice to eat?”
Another five days passed in the same fashion. Then, Tang Yuan’s weight
was measured once again. However, he was scared witless this time. [Crap!
He had gone from the initial 265kgs to the present 115kgs. This meant
that he had lost 150kgs after only twenty days of hard labor. Fatty still
looked a little obese at present. However, he looked as handsome as a
jade tree if one were to compare to the Fatty from before.
Tang Yuan had finally been able to lose weight owing to the crazy
tortures of his devil-like friend Jun Mo Xie!
This was a huge success. Moreover, it was a unique accomplishment. After
all, losing weight at such a rate was unprecedented… no matter which
world’s context we were to bring this up in! In fact, this was an
archetype for a legendary folklore! Tang Yuan’s name would’ve been
mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records in case this had happened
in the modern world!
Mentioning this in a ‘bro-talk’ would’ve sounded something like this
—”How did you get so thin so quickly? Did you get cancer or something?”
A normal person wouldn’t have been able to stand this if they had been in
Fatty’s place. However, Tang Yuan had been eating enriching delicacies
throughout his life. And, this had made his body strong and sturdy enough
to endure this. Moreover, Jun Mo Xie would often sneak into the Fatty’s
room at night when he would notice that Tang Yuan wasn’t able to bear it.
Then, Young Master Jun would transfer his spiritual energy into Tang
Yuan’s body in order to open and unblock his meridians while he slept.
Consequently, Tang Yuan would find himself recovered by the time he would
wake up the next morning. His energy would be reinstated as well. But, he
was still unaware of the reasons for it. So, he continued to lament his
However, his body-weight had decreased by a significant margin. So, his
appetite had also reduced… Moreover, he had gotten accustomed to the
diet of vegetables and tofu over the last twenty days or so. Therefore,
he couldn’t get back to fatty foods even if he wanted to.
This was obviously extremely painful for Tang Yuan. [I desperately wanted
to eat more. But, my mouth gets exhausted very quickly. It’s taking too
long to swallow. Moreover, my stomach can’t withstand these fatty foods
anymore…] That is why Fatty clenched his teeth and stamped his foot as
he declared —”I won’t be eating fat from now on!”
Tang Yuan’s weight-loss success was officially announced at this point!
A grand celebration was organized to commemorate this success on the very
same evening. Sun Xiao Mei had made the arrangements for it. However,
Tang Yuan found many familiar faces there… The two burly men who had
wanted to kill him with their swords… And, that young man from some
rich family! i.e. his so-called ‘love rival’. All of them were present on
the scene. And, Tang Yuan couldn’t help but be stupefied as a result…
