Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-656
“Sigh…” The empress sighed deeply and looked at her daughter. Suddenly,
a feeling of heartfelt powerlessness rose in her heart. Are we going to
have the same fate? Is she even more unfortunate than me? I still have
Han’s attachment; I have at least loved, but Meng has always been in an
one-sided love. Poor girl…
Murong Xiu Xiu quietly pondered for a long time, slowly stood up, and
looked at her daughter with great love. Then, she paced back and forth
several times. Suddenly, her eyes burst out with indescribable fierceness
and craze. From the side, the empress’ gentle and beautiful face, which
was supposed to be dignified, showed a speck of menace!
My entire life was ruined by that man! How can I witness my daughter’s
being ruined by him as well? She’s my only daughter and all of my efforts
have been for her! The empress thought silently. Her eyes were filled
with a tragic craze. I have to do something for my daughter. My duties as
a mother will be fulfilled even if it’s not successful!
She was so moved that she gasped violently. It sounded like tearing her
throat apart. She sounded so hysterical!
“Mother?” Princess Ling Meng looked up with concern.
“I’m fine! Really!” The empress lowered her head, lest her daughter saw
the anger in her eyes. She only waved her hand slowly and said, “Don’t
worry too much. It’s already late, go rest.”
Watching her dismal daughter walk out obediently and disappearing from
her sight, the empress felt heartbroken. She bit her teeth and finally
made up her mind. She stood up, refused the service from the maid, put on
her overcoat herself, and suddenly said coldly, “Call for the carriage, I
want to leave the palace and go to the Jun Family!”
“Your highness, it’s now… midnight…” The maidservant looked at her
“Did you not hear what I say?” The empress stared and said loudly. It was
the first time she spoke so fiercely ever since she entered the palace.
“Yes, I am going right away.” The maidservant almost collapsed to the
ground in fear. She quickly made her way out.

The empress laughed at herself and listened to the sound of footsteps
outside. Suddenly she tightened her collar and went out without
hesitation. As she stepped out of the palace door, a shadow flashed like
a phantom from the darkness and followed her step-by-step, like her own
“Ah Jiu, where are the new guards who lately came on duty now?” The
empress asked in a tone of indifference before she stepped onto the
“I heard that they don’t have any duty. They were all in the guard’s camp
and acted as a self-organized brigade. All of them were arrogant and
strong. I haven’t seen them do anything on weekdays, and they didn’t make
a fuss recently…” The shadow like Ah Jiu thought about it and gave a
“Erm, they only stopped messing around half a month ago right?” The
empress asked calmly. Her eyes showed a strong sarcasm. Half a month ago
was when Jun Mo Xie returned.
“Yes, ever since then, they stayed in camp and never left. Not a single
one of them,” answered Ah Jiu carefully. He did not dare to look at the
empress because he could hear the gloominess and blood-thirst in her tone.
“The shocking case before the Ye family was executed; were the culprits
from the Blood Sword Hall?” The empress asked with a low voice.
“Yes… but this is an open secret among the bigger families in the
city,” Ah Jiu answered in surprise, only to find that the empress had
already mounted a carriage.
It was past midnight and the freezing breeze blew. There was no starlight
or bright moon. The wheels of the carriage rolled with sound as it made
its way out of the palace.
“What? The empress is going to the Jun Family now?” The emperor frowned
and his face was gloomy and scary. He had been drunk with his head
hanging there weakly, but his gaze became as sharp as that of an eagle
when he heard the news!
Fierce and cruel!
“Yes.” The guard knelt on the floor and didn’t dare to raise his head.
“Ok, go.” The emperor leaned back and closed his eyes feeling tired. He
massaged his own forehead and the sense of ruthlessness grew as his
breathing became more rapid. He murmured, “Why the Jun Family now? Why?”
He looked more anxious the more he thought about it. A hysterical
expression then emerged. He hollered with a low voice, “Why are you going
there now? Are you trying to betray me? Murong Xiu Xiu, I have tolerated
you for so long! So long!”
He yelled and his eyes reddened from the alcohol. His face was full of
menace. He suddenly said, “Call Mr. Wen!”
“Brother Wen, I want you do something for me please!” Just as the elegant
and nonchalant looking Mr. Wen entered with a smile, the emperor made a
“You are flattering me. What’s the matter? And, I also have to notify you
of something today, your majesty.” Mr. Wen looked at him with a smile.
“You also have something to announce? Please say first!” The emperor was
smiling, but muscles on his majestic face were obviously twitching in
anger as his beard moved with it. There was a strong killing intent.
“I will be leaving the Tian Xiang Imperial Palace and returning to the
Supreme Golden City the day after tomorrow! It’s not only me, all men
positioned in palaces across the Xuan Xuan Continent were called back!
From then on, we will not interfere with any secular business anymore!”
Mr. Wen said with a smile.
“What? Why…” The emperor immediately stood up and looked at the man in
front of him in disbelief.
“I am sorry, but it’s true!” Mr. Wen put on a more serious face.
The indifferent words shattered the last trace of hope of the emperor.
“Why the sudden decision? Please tell me directly!” The emperor asked
with a deep voice as he sat back down with a bitter face.
“I don’t know either. This is the decision from the highest ranks of the
Golden City, we don’t have a choice either.” Mr. Wen stared at the man
before him. “Your Majesty, do… take care.”
“Hehe… take care… what can I even take care of anymore…” The
emperor laughed. His face was full of loneliness. He shook his head
slowly and said with a low voice, “During this period of time, I managed
the country conscientiously day and night to deal with official business.
It was even more tiring than the previous years combined. Haha, I really
don’t have much time left. Naturally, I need to settle everything so that
I can pass everything down to the crowned prince. I’ll have tea with Jun
Wu Hui afterward. Right or wrong? That’s ridiculous! Ha-ha, ha-ha…”
He was laughing, but it was full of misery.
“Crowned prince?” Mr. Wen frowned.
“You are leaving. I shall chose the crowned prince today. It should just
be the eldest prince.” The emperor sighed and his eyes showed his
helplessness. “He is better among the three… the other two are too…
“Your majesty, are you worried about Jun Mo Xie seeking revenge?” Mr. Wen
“You think… he won’t avenge his father? He won’t discover the truth?”
The emperor asked back.
“Paper can never contain fire. As for who he is today, does he still need
evidence or truth?” Mr. Wen smiled but said grimly.
“Brother Wen, perhaps we won’t meet ever again after this parting.” The
emperor’s words showed extreme desolation. He turned to look at the
darkness outside before saying slowly. “We have been sworn brothers for
so many years. You are leaving, and I am really not willing.”
Mr. Wen took to the silence for a while before saying after a long sigh.
“I don’t wish to either… For all these years, you did not treat me like
your subordinate. I have received so much, but I can’t pay you back.”
“Brother Wen, I want you to help me do something.” The emperor suddenly
raised his head, and his eyes revealed his madness and murderous
intentions. “Please, just make it a parting present for me!”
“Please say, Your Majesty! I have stayed in the Palace for so many years
and I feel uneasy for not contributing much. If I can help Your Majesty
do anything, I will feel much better.” Mr. Wen said firmly after a pause.
“The empress just left for the Jun Family!” The emperor sounded hoarse.
It was mixed with deep grief and helplessness. “She was having a cold war
with me recently. She sees me like a foe! I have tolerated her for 18
years! And now, she still goes to the Jun Family at this time of the day!”
Yang Huai Yu, the monarch of Tian Xiang Empire, suddenly spoke like a
wounded beast, howling in a low voice. His face was twisted to the
extreme and full of malevolence. He clenched both hands tightly.
“Eighteen years! I tolerated her, I loved her, I went crazy over her, and
I cannot get her heart at all! She is like an empty casing! From the
beginning to the end, I, an emperor, cannot match Ye Gu Han, that
The emperor snarled and grabbed the wine cup. But it was empty. He threw
it aside irritably and raised the whole wine jug, pouring it straight
into his mouth.
