Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-642
Bai Wu Xin stood rooted to the ground, completely motionless. He tried
his best to struggle and escape, but he completely lacked the strength.
He could only look on hopelessly as Zhen Ci Bei’s palm landed on his
head. With a light pa sound, his entire head flattened and his brains
flowed out of his ears. His death was extremely sorry to behold!
Everyone fell as silent as cicadas in the dead of winter.
Du Jue stood quietly to the side, watching coldly as his face flickered
with a strange expression.
A Superior Supreme was killed so easily simply because Zhen Ci Bei wanted
to. There were basically no grounds for face or past relations!
Bai Wu Xin’s body had barely hit the ground when a chorus of gasps rose
Zhen Ci Bei and Du Jue turned and looked over. A large hole had appeared
on the cliff to their left. It was completely black and squarish, the
size of a room. It was not clear how deep it went.
“There’s something off, as expected!” Zhen Ci Bei stroked his long beard
as a gleam flashed through his eyes, “Let’s go, we’ll go and take a look!”
Underground, Chu Qi Hun looked at Jun Mo Xie as if he’d seen a ghost.
“You won!” The Supreme Assassin Chu said with a sigh. “I’m inferior to
you! You’re the real King of Assassins! Fully deserved! The name Supreme
Assassin will no longer belong to me!”

Hun’s voice was mixed with disappointment, shame, admiration, and respect.
Chu Qi Hun had clearly seen everything that had happened, and he
understood that he had lost completely. And he’d lost convincingly! On
the surface, he had killed two Supreme Masters of the Supreme Golden City
and a Superior Supreme from the Illusory Blood Sea. Jun Mo Xie had also
killed three and injured one by way of sneak attack; as for Ma Jiang
Ming’s death at the end, that was not counted into the score. On the
surface, Jun Mo Xie had only gained a small edge over Chu Qi Hun, and the
difference between them was very minor.
But Chu Qi Hun knew in his heart that he had lost utterly and completely
right from the start!
Because the set-up of this entire scenario had been fully designed by Jun
Mo Xie! All the chances to perform hits on their targets had only
appeared because of Jun Mo Xie’s manipulations. Otherwise, such a result
would have been nigh impossible!
Chu Qi Hun was good at accessing his opportunities, and grasping them; no
matter how small the opportunity was, he would grasp them instinctively,
using his elusive techniques to deal a deadly strike! For an assassin,
this was seemingly sufficient!
He had always been proud of his talent at grasping even the tiniest
opportunity and timing, and he thought that this was all he needed!
But today, he was given a lesson by the youth before him; for an
assassin—the best assassin—not only does one need to have a perfect
eye for opportunities, one must be able to create an opportunity when
there is none!
If Chu Qi Hun was by himself, he would find it hard himself to even
escape safely after he sneak attacked one of the eight experts because he
would be immediately surrounded by the other seven and tied down!
But Jun Mo Xie was actually able to create a scenario where they had the
opportunity to kill all eight of the experts, wiping them out! This kind
of methods was bordering on miraculous!
The difference between their methods was completely impossible to
describe with just words!
use of opportunities was a reactive action, but creating one’s own
opportunity was a proactive action!
Only by creating one’s own opportunities could they grasp it best!
On the other hand, waiting silently for one’s opponents to make a mistake
was just akin to waiting every day under a tree, in hopes that a hare
would kill itself by crashing into the tree trunk!
Chu Qi Hun was sure that even if Ma Jiang Ming and the Ruan brothers did
not have any personal conflicts between them, Jun Mo Xie would still be
capable of using other methods to divert their attention. Or he would
make use of any points of disagreement among their group to draw them
into fighting each other!
He was fully capable of that!
But as for himself, he had never thought of things in this way before.
Not even once!
Not only had he never tried to orchestrate a suitable scenario to act in,
this thought had never even crossed his mind before!
This was the gap between them!
An extremely difficult gap to close!
“Thank you.” Jun Mo Xie smiled, not bothering with hypocritical
he could clearly feel that Chu Qi Hun was indeed extremely lacking in
this aspect. A King of Assassins, a Supreme Assassin, was not something
one could assume just by being good at killing people.
There was similarly a vast field of study for this profession.
If there was an open opportunity, then the assassin needed to figure out
a way to draw out the largest potential in that opportunity. Even if
there were no opportunities to exploit, the assassin must be capable of
conjuring the best scenario to take action in! This was what a complete
assassin needed to be!
These kind of ideals similarly applied to any other professions. From the
three religions and nine schools of thought, to court officials and even
street hawkers, wasn’t this the same!
Opportunities were something that everybody would encounter every so
But where there were no opportunities to be found, an opportunity that
one crafted with their own hands would sometimes be even more suitable to
Thus, when a person found himself or herself at a dead end in life, the
correct action was to carve out a path with his or her own efforts.
The more one felt trapped in their life, and the more their “roads” were
sealed, and the greater the chance and motivation to forge a blazing path
“When I escape from here alive, I will release this news to the world!
The Supreme Assassin is no longer Chu Qi Hun!” Chu Qi Hun’s voice was low
and solemn, but it was also filled with pain. “Since my skills were
inferior, being referred to as the Supreme Assassin still would be an
insult to me!”
“I don’t need the acknowledgement of the common people, so there’s no
need for you to do that! What does it matter if the world acknowledges me
or not?” Jun Mo Xie raised his head and smiled lightly. Then, he
continued smugly. “I only need your acknowledgement, and that’s enough
Xie said this, he felt his heart lighten considerably. He thought
consolingly in his heart. This Evil Monarch did not lose our face! His
heart actually felt a little sourness as he thought that.
“What a good ‘what does it matter if the world acknowledges me!’ This
sentence truly hit to my heart!” Chu Qi Hun froze momentarily and began
to laugh aloud. Now that this matter was settled, he looked at the party
of three properly and asked in a serious tone. “I haven’t properly
enquired until now; what are the three esteemed masters’ names?”
The three of them looked at each other with shock when they heard those
words. They’d assumed that Chu Qi Hun was aware of their identity long
ago, but who would have thought that this fellow actually did not know
them at all.
This could only be blamed on Chu Qi Hun’s weird nature. This fellow had
never properly interacted with anyone his entire life, and did not know
to ask others for their names. Before this, the only names he’d committed
to his mind were the names of his assassination targets.
Chu Qi Hun always thought that nobody under the heavens was worthy of him
remembering their names. There naturally weren’t anybody who had enough
qualifications to be his friend! Nobody was qualified!
To this former Supreme Assassin, this was the first time he’d opened his
mouth to ask for someone’s name!
This was a typical example of an old virgin woman getting onto the
marriage sedan chair for the first time.
“My name is Jun Mo Xie, this is my mother, Dongfang Wen Xin. This is my
wife, surname Mei. I won’t be mentioning her full name.” Jun Mo Xie
introduced with a smile. At the same time, he took the opportunity to
take some advantage again.
“You are Jun Mo Xie! And you’re from the Dongfang Family?!” Chu Qi Hun
gasped aloud in shock as he continued asking. “Are you really the wife of
the great general Jun Wu Hui? Lady Wen Xin of the Dongfang Family?”
“This woman is indeed the person you speak of.” Dongfang Wen Xin’s eyes
turned slightly red and she forcefully steadied her emotions. “This
woman’s ignoble life has been a disgrace to her husband’s illustrious
name, and I have incurred Senior Chu’s ridicule.” Suddenly hearing her
husband’s name from the mouth of others caused her to feel a warm
familiarity in her heart. In that moment, Dongfang Wen Xin suddenly felt
a sourness in her heart, and she could barely compose herself.
those words, Madam,” Chu Qi Hun’s face turned serious. “Although Great
General Jun is considered a junior by age, he was a heroic and courageous
man, both chivalrous and unyielding. This Chu is a cold-blooded killer,
and has never admired anymore; however, Jun Wu Hui was the only
exception! And the undying love that Madam holds for your husband is
enough to shock even the heavens; for the sake of your husband, you would
rather sleep for an eternity as a testament to your love! That is enough
to cause all people to stand in admiration! It’s also enough to cause
those wealthy lords who war for greed to feel incomparably ashamed of
themselves! A heroic couple like you complements and brings out the best
in each other, what disgrace is there to speak of?”
Chu Qi Hun shook his head and sighed longly, “Back then, I had the
fortune to meet the Great General Jun once, but it was because someone
had offered a price of 30 million silver for me to assassinate him. I
investigated him thoroughly, but the more I found out about him, the more
admiration I had for this man. Ultimately, I did not take the hit, and
gave up on the transaction. That was also the first time that I turned
away from a contract hit in my life.”
He laughed bitterly and continued, “I, Chu Qi Hun, have always been a
cold blooded killer. It didn’t matter if one was a loyal minister or a
grieving wife; as long as someone was able to afford the silver, I have
never once been soft-hearted. But that time, I was completely filled with
respect and admiration for Jun Wu Hui. I once infiltrated the army camp
and watched him for three days before deciding to just leave.”
“This woman thanks Senior Chu on behalf of her late husband for your
mercy!” Dongfang Wen Xin stood up and clasped her hands respectfully.
“May I know who the person who commissioned you to assassinate my father?
Can Senior tell me his name?” Jun Mo Xie furrowed his brows and said. He
cared more about this matter. For some reason, every lead he’d obtained
in this case had instead led him into an even more complicated web of
“The person who commissioned me back then was the Imperial Teacher of Yu
Tang Kingdom, Fei Meng Chen!” Chu Qi Hun hesitated for a moment and said.
“I did not accept his contract, and so he’s not considered my client.
It’s not really a big deal to reveal his name.”
Although he’d said it like that, Jun Mo Xie understood very clearly that
for an assassin to reveal any details of an ex-client was the biggest
taboo in the industry! Chu Qi Hun might have claimed that this person was
not a true client, but he nevertheless owed Chu Qi Hun a great debt of
personal favor at this moment!
“Chu Qi Hun, I was thinking about your movement technique; it seems
somewhat strange…” Mei Xue Yan, who was sitting quietly at the side,
suddenly said as she looked at Chu Qi Hun suspiciously. A faint killing
intent surged from her body. “Do you know of the War for Seizing the
“Venerable Mei has great eyesight.” How could Chu Qi Hun still not know
who this beauty before him was? Back then, when she fought alone against
30 plus experts, Chu Qi Hun was hiding nearby watching! Toward her, he
naturally did not dare to be slow in his reply. “This one’s late master
had the honor of battling atop the Heavenly Pillar back then. In the end,
he fell from the peaks while bearing heavy injuries, but was lucky enough
to survive. However, half of his cultivation had been lost, and parts of
his body were crippled. After spending a lot of effort to climb back up
and recuperating for a long time, he took me in as a disciple after a
Chu Qi Hun’s face carried a slight painful smile as he lowered his head
and continued. “Although my late master’s cultivation was no longer able
to advance, he was a master of the life arts and his lifespan was not a
worry. Although he was unable to practice Xuan cultivation any more, he
developed an interest in the arts of the strange races.”
Hun sighed deeply and continued. “My late master once said that the
strange races’ greatest threat toward us was their elusive movement
techniques. They could hide themselves at will, and it was difficult to
differentiate with the naked eye; countless powerful experts with
cultivations superior to them had fallen under their unpredictable
stealth techniques. It was the same for my late master as well! In the
last few hundred years of his life, he had been studying their unique
“Your teacher was obviously a wise man; did he perhaps manage to find out
a way to counter them?” Mei Xue Yan’s eyes lit up as she asked anxiously.
