Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-59
[TL: I have decided to change the Supreme God Xuan rank into Supreme
Divine Xuan rank. I will change those in the earlier chapters later on.]
Chapter 059 Sky Xuan?
Seeing the assassins heading towards him earlier, Jun Xie had already
thought of a method to get out of this situation. As he was falling down
in a seemingly miserable manner, he exercised every ounce of skill and
focused it upon his chest. Through the empowerment of his internal
energies, his outer and inner robes bulged forward, forming two delicate
layers of protection. The heavy kicks from the assassin seemingly
connected with Jun Xie’s chest, but was in fact interfered with by the
pulsing outer robe, causing its momentum to dissipate by a large margin.
Next, the pulsing inner robe acted in concert to further shave off
another layer of momentum off the kicks.
As such, the amount of force behind the attack was only at less than one
third of the original. By the time the kicks landed on his chest, the
momentum behind it had been mostly spent, leaving only a minor force
behind it. Despite that, a sword wound and two kicks were not something
the present Jun Xie could easily endure. It was in fact quite difficult.
At the same time, Jun Xie channelled the Art of Heaven’s Fortune to
force all the blood from his injuries into a mass of blood which he then
sprayed out. It seemed like a scary amount, but was in fact nothing
The sword wound was cocooned by the powers of the Art of Unlocking
Heaven’s Fortune. With the Art’s mysterious prowess, the wound could
only be considered a flesh wound. The two kicks on the other hand was a
different matter, causing him no small amount of pain.
If these men had waited for Jun Xie to leave before dealing with Princess
Ling Meng, or perhaps if they had ignored Jun Xie in their assassination
mission, then Jun Xie would have simply walked away in a calm manner by
now. At best, Princess Ling Meng was only Jun Moxie’s dream lover and
not Jun Xie’s. Thus, this senior had no scruples at all about not
caring for her. Heroes will step forth to protect beauties, but in order
to obtain and protect beauties; one must first have a sufficient amount
of strength. It just so happened that strength was what the Third Young
Master Jun was lacking at the present!
Instead, these assassins decided to include him in the target list,
causing the Evil Monarch’s fury to rise to the skies! Disregarding the
possibility that something like this might happen again in the future,
Jun Xie would never forgive them for what they did this time around!
Against all those who harmed me or those who attempted to harm me, I have
always dealt with them pre-emptively! Since you wanted to kill me, then
you better watch it! I may not be able to kill you now, but I sure can
disrupt this plan of yours! Even though this would be a non-beneficial
transaction, I will still have to do it for once!
Therefore, Jun Xie who should have left decided not to. Witnessing
Princess Ling Meng in her critical situation, he utilized his unlocked
meridians to mimic the qi of a Sky Xuan ranked expert. He poured the qi
into his flying dagger before shooting it out with a swirling manoeuvre.
The two assassin leaders were about to push their swords forward and
finish off Princess Ling Meng when they suddenly felt something off. A
blue radiance flashed before them, causing everyone to squint their eyes
due to its extremely dazzling brilliance!
A small flying dagger which had seemingly appeared out of nowhere, struck
down in between the two swords of the assassins and Princess Ling
This small flying dagger had seemingly brought with it the entirety of
the dark blue aspect of the night down upon the ground. The dark blue
colour upon it caused everyone’s soul to palpitate with fear!
Amidst the darkness of the night, this dark blue radiance was simply
Sky Xuan expert!
The two masked men in black cried out in fear, an expression of extreme
horror flashed within their eyes. They lost all thoughts of killing
Princess Ling Meng, hastily retracted their swords and retreated quickly
in an awkward manner. Their expression after seeing the flying dagger was
akin to seeing a deadly viper!
That was a strength that they simply could not defy!
Indeed, when facing Princess Ling Meng who had the strength of Silver
Xuan, the two of them were like an adult fighting a child. However, in
the face of a top existence known as the Sky Xuan ranked expert, a Gold
Xuan expert were at best a baby, if not an ant!
There were not many Sky Xuan experts within Tianxiang Kingdom, how could
one suddenly appear at this crucial moment?!
Although the flying dagger was imbued with an azure blue colour, it
seemed to be lacking any force behind it. It gently fell to the ground,
inserting itself between the two men in black and Princess Ling Meng. The
thin flying dagger stood like a willow branch, swaying gently. The azure
blue radiance upon it remained without dispersing. After a moment, the
flying dagger was finally restored to its original colour!
Many of them at the scene were shocked and simultaneously stopped
whatever they were doing. Their eyes were all focused on the small flying
dagger inserted upon the ground, their expressions filled with
In their eyes, the small flying dagger had transformed into an
Upon the flying dagger was the deep blue colour, which was maintained
from the moment it was shot out until way after it had stopped! Judging
by these events, this Sky Xuan expert’s level of cultivation must have
reached the pinnacle stage! The gap between this expert and the Supreme
Divine Xuan realm was probably only half a step!
In addition, this flying dagger was shot out without any sound, seemingly
without any force behind it. Yet, the high level of precision involved in
controlling the trajectory of the flying dagger declared something to
them. It declared that this flying dagger was meant as a form of
deterrence; the Sky Xuan expert had not issued it with the intention to
kill! This act made it appear that this expert had no worries and simply
did not view the nine assassins highly. It was obvious that the expert
had absolute confidence in his ability to kill them all in an instant if
any of them tried to make a move against Princess Ling Meng! To say that
a Sky Xuan expert could wipe out these nine men with a wave of his hand
was not an exaggeration.
Everyone there were highly capable individuals possessing vast amounts of
experience. How could they not understand the intentions of this
As the two assassin leaders were about to stab Princess Ling Meng, a
figure draped in blue clothing suddenly radiated an oceanic blue glow.
This person who was hidden within the dark eaves of a house situated
beside the street was about to make his move when he saw the flying
dagger appear. He became startled and his body which was about to fly out
abruptly stopped, his eyes covered in shock.
Within the eyes of this man in blue was a light blue shine, signifying
the beginner stage of the Sky Xuan rank. Even though he could be
considered a top-level existence, compared to the ‘Sky Xuan expert’
who issued the flying daggers, his level of cultivation was somewhat
Behind their masks, the nine assassins’ faces were filled with fear and
a little bit of dilemma. Even though they were assassins by profession,
they were still men who valued their own lives. If there were a chance to
win, they would certainly choose to duke it out. However, when facing an
impossible task with a hundred per cent death rate, everyone could only
choose to retreat!
In contrast, Princess Ling Meng’s bodyguards all became relieved and
delighted! With such a legendary existence protecting Princess Ling Meng,
Her Highness’ safety was assured! If the princess were to be
assassinated here, then even if they were able to protect their own lives
from these assassins, they would not be able to escape the Emperor’s
wrath. Once His Majesty launched an investigation into this case, their
wives and children might end up being harmed.
Princess Ling Meng opened her eyes and bore witness to this scene.
Looking at the small flying dagger on the ground, she felt thankful. If
not for this flying dagger which had appeared in such a dominating
manner, she would have perished by now!
“Which senior has arrived? Do you have any instructions? Please show
yourself,” The leader of the masked men in black stood straight, his
hands cupped respectfully towards the sky as he said in a courteous
voice. Trying to pull wool over the tiger’s eyes, this man pretended to
not understand the expert’s intention and tried to feel him out. If
this assassination attempt were to fail, they would not have anything
good awaiting them. Thus, he could only hold onto the possibility of a
‘what if’ and give it a try!
If it was determined that this hidden Sky Xuan expert truly desired to
protect Princess Ling Meng, then they would have no hope of accomplishing
their mission even at the cost of every one of their lives! Should that
be the case, they could only choose to retreat!
However, even if Princess Ling Meng was the princess of the kingdom, the
most adored daughter of the Emperor, how could someone like her have a
pinnacle Sky Xuan expert as a bodyguard? Only the Emperor of Tianxiang
Kingdom could qualify to have such a kind of bodyguard!
The street remained still, not a sound to be heard.
It was only natural for this ‘mysterious Sky Xuan expert’ to not give
these minor characters any acknowledgement.
