Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-672
As a cunning man, Xiao Xing Yun was fully aware that Han Zhan Meng was
suspicious of the Xiao Family, so he had been thinking about how to
conceal their intentions lately, but he couldn’t find a suitable lie.
With a heightened pressure from Han Zhan Meng today, he suddenly came up
with this reason.
It actually sounded rather convincing… After all, there was a past
Han Zhan Meng was immediately stunned. He frowned and his eyes reflected
his inner conflict. He finally said, “Well then, please help me watch
over them carefully. Notify me immediately if there’s something wrong!”
As he said, he walked out, obviously laden with anxiety. Are both of my
daughters going to have the same fate?
He stared upward at the snow-capped peak half veiled by clouds. His
emotions surged. His elder daughter had been training in seclusion for
ten years up there. It was sort of her punishment, but by her own
Han Zhan Meng sighed and his eyes showed his dismay. Suddenly he launched
forward and dashed towards the snow-capped peak.
He did not notice that behind him, a sense of relief appeared in Xiao
Xing Yun’s malicious eyes. Finally… I’ve bluffed him through this time.
The snow-capped peak was one of the crucial parts to the oath the
Dongfang Family was forced to make!
To collapse of the snow-covered sword peak and the drive out all Xuan
Beasts from Tian Fa!
It was the highest peak in the snowy mountains. It resembled a huge sword
that was piercing the sky. The peak was roughly in the shape of a cone,
and there were two mountain ridges on both side of this peak. The
mountain ridges looked like the sword handle while the snow-capped peak
The majestic looking snow-capped peak stretched over ten square

peak was an almost impossible task! How could such a large mountain
collapse so easily?
As Han Zhan Meng reached the foot of the peak, he could not help recall
the battle and the oath made in that fateful year. He felt sorry for the
Dongfang Family. An outstanding family of assassins would forever be
locked away in seclusion by the oath and there was little hope for them
to rise again.
Due to the thinning air, the higher one went up a mountain, the harder it
was to breath. An ordinary person would even have the danger of
suffocating climbing up the snow-capped mountain. However, for a Xuan
practitioner, it was the opposite. There was more Heaven Earth Spiritual
Qi concentrated at higher altitudes, so training up here was very
beneficial to their cultivation.
Snowflakes swirled as they glided down. The snow-capped peak looked like
this all year round. This caused the peak to look a hundred meters higher
than its actual height. It was all piled snow that was compressed into
ice. If there was enough heat, a small stream could easily form within a
few days. But how could there be so much heat in the first place in a
location like this…
The cave where Han Yan Yao stayed was near the very top of the peak! The
temperature there was even lower. It was twice as cold as the foot of the
peak. It would also be more beneficial to train there and many
generations of young talents did indeed train there. But the longest they
stayed in seclusion was three years while most could only last for a few
months. After all, humans were social beings, and the isolation would be
soon unbearable and might drive people crazy.
Especially in the last few hundred years, training here had slowly become
a form of punishment.
But Han Yan Yao had been staying here for ten years!
As her father, even Han Zhan Meng could not imagine how she had endured
His wife and the Great Elder had asked many times for her to come own,
but she would always refuse calmly without giving a reason!
As Han Zhan Meng continued to sigh softly, the frost-covered entrance of
the cave was visible. He stepped into the darkness.
cave than outside. Looking around, it was an icy world. The whole cave
was only decorated by the naturally occurring reflective ice walls and
shiny icicles. There were no furniture or daily goods. There was nothing
one could enjoy.
Is this a place where a girl could live?
At the center of the cave, a woman in white with her black hair falling
over her shoulders was sitting on a raised platform made by ice. She had
her eyes closed and hands placed in front of her abdomen. She was
training. There was only calmness on her face as her whole figure seemed
to blend in with the icy background. She looked hardly alive.
Han Zhan Meng felt a pain in his heart. Is this still the daughter who
would ask me to tell her a story? Where have her smiles and happiness
“Little Yao.” Han Zhan Meng finally called out softly as mixed feelings
exploded within him.
As she heard the sound, she slowly opened her eyes. There was a glimpse
of warmth coming from her eyes as she saw that her father was before her.
But she remained emotionless. “Dad, welcome.”
She had passed many years here and the pain in her heart that couldn’t be
alleviated had rendered her unable to smile. She couldn’t even talk much.
She had become a part of the snowy mountains, refusing to be melted!
Perhaps no one except him can make her smile again…
Han Zhan Meng only stared at his daughter but couldn’t say anything.
The sense of unfamiliarity and distance between them was agonizing.
spoke first. “What brings dad here today?”
Han Zhan Meng wanted to say many things, but he suppressed those ideas.
Instead he said, “Little Yao. There’s a thing that has always been
bothering me for ten years. I wanted to hear from you.”
Han Yan Yao raised her brows slightly in surprise. “Please say.”
“I sent men to check on Jun Wu Yi after you fell in love with him.
Honestly, he isn’t too bad. But in my opinion, he is inferior to Xiao Han
in all aspects. I still don’t know why you made the decision. Does Jun Wu
Yi really have something so special?”
It was true that this had puzzled him for ten years, but he only decided
to mention it again because of the Great Elder’s guess just now. What if
the Elder’s guess was true? Would both his daughters meet the same fate?
Upon hearing the name “Jun Wu Yi,” Han Yan Yao’s eyes glowed with
gentleness and her cold face seemed to thaw, but it soon turned back.
“Dad, don’t you know? I thought you had long known.”
“Why do you say so?” Han Zhan Meng frowned.
“Jun Wu Yi cannot match Xiao Han’s looks and gentleness. No matter Xuan
cultivation, skills, or even the background, Jun Wu Yi is completely
inferior. To a common woman, Xiao Han is obviously much more outstanding
than Jun Wu Yi.”
“Hmm? Since you knew, why did you make the decision…?” Han Zhan Meng
didn’t expect this answer. He thought his daughter would endlessly praise
Jun Wu Yi.
“Yes, considering all the external factors, Xiao Han is better than Wu
Yi. But to me, Jun Wu Yi is the real man!”
emitted fiery flames as she recalled. “His Xuan cultivation was low, but
he often did things to help others without seek fame and fortune.
Although he is not good-looking, he’s so open-minded. He’s a real
gentleman! His family is considered prominent secularly, but he’s never
arrogant and unreasonable! He’s young, but he is willing to sacrifice for
his country and became the famous Blood General! These are his good
qualities! Father, is Xiao Han like this? If he weren’t born into a
prominent family, how generous would he be?
“Let’s put all this aside first! The most unforgettable is our first
encounter in the Magnificent Jewel Hall! I can’t forget his handsome
She slowly raised her head. “Dad, I’m confident with my looks! I’m sure
there are only a few who can match my beauty. I’m sure you agree.”
Han Zhan Meng silently nodded, Han Yan Yao was indeed breathtakingly
beautiful. She was easily the prettiest woman in the Silver City even
today. He had long been used to the way some of the apprentices would
suddenly become stunned and have their eyes glued on his daughter.
“When Jun Wu Yi saw me that day, he was only amazed for a short while and
soon returned to his usual calmness.” Han Yan Yao recalled with a shy
smile on her face. “When he left, he didn’t turn back his head to look at
me again. I had in my possession a herb he wanted; he literally took it
from my hand and stuffed a few notes in, then left immediately. I was
still a very proud girl then, so of course I wouldn’t let him go like
that. I followed him. My Xuan cultivation was much higher than his, so he
“I wanted to make a fool of him. But I was surprised to find out that he
left so hurriedly because one of his lieutenant was poisoned and the
antidote was the herb I had had! The lieutenant had been deeply poisoned,
so the herb only allowed him to say his last words before the poison
reached his heart and took his life. Jun Wu Yi immediately cried, lying
on his body. He tried to suck the poison out from the lieutenant’s
wounds, but it was obviously to no avail! Dad, it was the first time I
saw a man crying and I finally understood what is brotherhood!
“I silently left, but the scene in which he cried lying on his brother’s
body loitered in my head. He gave up the opportunity to interact with…
a beauty like me to save his brother who was almost certainly dead and
left without hesitation… A few days later, I met him again. It was when
he sent away his elder brother on the day the army headed out…
“The more I interacted, the more I was certain that although he wasn’t a
genius nor a heir of a super family, he was a true man! He never had to
hide anything from me. He was so real and authentic.
“I don’t care what others think. I just feel that Xiao Han is too fake.
The way he looks at me is full of lust and makes it seem like I am
already his. On the other hand, Jun Wu Yi showed empathy and respect. So
I love Jun Wu Yi, and despise Xiao Han!”
because of that that Xiao Han is chosen by you without my approval while
Jun Wu Yi is the one I chose by myself. He’s the one that I can entrust
my life to.”
Han Yan Yao’s voice was calmer than ever, but it sounded like screams of
desperation to Han Zhan Meng. “The oath or the relationship between the
families; I don’t know which forced you to settle the marriage. But as we
grew up, didn’t you realize how stingy Xiao Han is? He would break
anyone’s limbs if they looked at me a bit longer, and some of them were
of his relatives. And don’t you know what a playboy he is? As soon as he
entered the secular world, he began messing around with girls. He was so
peremptory. He would rape them if they didn’t obeyed. If anyone who tried
to stop him was stronger than him, he would say that he was from the Xiao
Family from the Silver City to get away with it! How despicable! Are you
really willing to marry me to him? You can pretend that you didn’t know,
but I can’t!
“You want a more secure relationship with the Xiao Family. I can
understand. But will I really be happy if I’m married to him? What Xiao
Han did was never a secret; did you really not know? Dad… you didn’t
listen to me… Did you know how much despair I was in?! I totally gave
up on this pathetic life!” Tears rolled out from her eyes slowly.
Han Zhan Meng listened, so stunned. There was suddenly a heartfelt
remorse. Even if he didn’t know about all this, he did hear rumors about
it. He didn’t really care much about it. He thought it would get better
when they were married. What could go wrong? But now, he really realized
Han Yan Yao said exasperatedly, “When I met Jun Wu Yi, I finally realized
what a monster Xiao Han is! Dad, I’m sure anyone would marry their
daughter to Jun Wu Yi instead of him!
“After the trip to Tian Xiang, the Xiao Family became arrogant to an
astonishing degree! Jun Wu Yi didn’t know my identity all along and
didn’t have the slightest intention to take advantage of the Silver City!
The Xiao Family sent people to warn him directly. Was that a warning? It
was humiliation! And they forced me to return. After that, they used all
sorts of ways to punish the Jun Family! How ruthless! Jun Wu Hui, a war
god, hero of the world! And they killed him together with Jun Wu Meng, an
upright and heroic figure, at Tian Guan Lin just because of me! What’s
more, Jun Wu Hui’s two sons were also killed because of me! Two bright
teenagers! They spared Jun Wu Yi and only made him disabled because they
wanted him to feel the endless torment of living a useless life! If I
hadn’t tried so hard to stop them, the whole family would have been gone!
Dad, didn’t you know about it? What did you do or say?!
“Dad, my whole life is ruined!” She looked blankly at her father. “All of
them died because of me! If you were Jun Wu Yi, would you still want a
trouble-causing woman like me? No matter how much you loved her, so many
of your beloved ones died because of her! Could you still accept her?
Dad, show some empathy! Everyone says that there’s karma, but is there
really justice? Violence creates rule in this world! Even those who could
bring about justice would hide in the back because of all sorts of
reasons. There are so many Supremes and Superior Supremes in the world
and any one of them could stop the tragedy with a word! But did they do
anything? They didn’t! WHAT CAN I DO?”
Han Zhan Meng frowned in agony. He couldn’t say anything! There seemed to
be something blocking his throat. He knew so well that those bystanders
without empathy his daughter had mentioned referred to him as well.
What could he say to his daughter who was tormented for ten years?
Han Yan Yao stood up slowly. She looked in desolation at the snow outside
and said slowly, “It’s cold here; I feel it too! But I don’t want to go
back down! I’d rather stay here for life! I don’t want to see those
familiar yet disgusting faces down there! I want to kill them, all of
them! They are not worthy of living!
names of those from the Jun Family who had died because of me on the
first day I arrived here. I’m setting an altar for them! All I could do
was to pray for their forgiveness. I have nothing here for me to pay
tribute to them: there’s only me, the sinful woman, and my three kowtows
a day! I can’t do anything else. I know it’s all meaningless, but it
comforts my conscience!
“I’m responsible for their death.” Han Yan Yao was too calm that it was
frightening. “And I’m a part of the Jun Family; I am Jun Wu Yi’s woman!
Dad, even if there wasn’t a proper marriage nor any promise, I have long
seen myself as their daughter-in-law. If I really die here someday,
please send my body to the Jun Family! It’s the last request I have for
Han Zhan Meng stood up and sighed at the heavens. Being parted for so
long, he thought he would have many things to say to his daughter. How
would he know that he was left completely speechless!
Yes, there’s karma!
Why didn’t those who could do something do anything?
“Daughter, don’t be so pessimistic. Perhaps… Jun Wu Yi will someday be
strong enough to bring you back from here. As long as he reaches that
level, I will fulfill your wishes.” Han Zhan Meng breathed in and
promised. “Even if it means turning against the Xiao Family!”
“Dad, it’s too late. If you had said it ten years ago, everything could
have been avoided! The tragedy has already played out, and the dead can’t
be brought back! Even if he comes to the Silver City one day… I believe
he will be here to seek revenge instead of bringing me back! There’s an
irreconcilable hatred between us! I know him!
“The death of his brothers definitely haunts him, and it also haunts me!
There’s no way out! Dad… they are real brothers related by blood! We
can support the Xiao Family for thousand years because of a sworn
brotherhood, what about them?”
She smiled in despair. “Dad, the day he reaches the snowy mountain will
be the day O end my life! I will beg for forgiveness when he finally
avenges his brothers!”
shook as he said firmly, “You can’t do this… how will your mother and I
“The pain from losing me? I’m sure you’ll be sad! But Jun Wu Yi was
tormented by the loss of his beloved ones everyday for ten years! How
could he face it? Dad, Xiao Han said he wanted Jun Wu Yi to experience
torture for being alive, and he did! I’m sure that for ten years, he had
felt worse than if he were dying!
“I have to pay the price! And my life is the only thing I can pay with! I
just hope by then, our family will not stand by the side of the Xiao
Family and deepen our sins!”
Han Zhan Meng sighed again at the heavens. He looked lifeless. “Little
Yao, perhaps it won’t be so far away. The Jun Family has announced that
they will destroy the Silver City on the second of February!”
“What?!” Han Yan Yao jumped up and looked at her father with surprise and
and so much joy. Her voice trembled. “Dad… are you trying to comfort
“Of course. How can I joke around with this?” Han Zhan Meng nodded his
head. He felt helpless as he watched the unconcealable joy of his
daughter. The enemy is here and my daughter is so happy. The Jun Family
wants to destroy the whole Silver City, not only the Xiao Family…
“Then… are they strong enough? Won’t they be in danger if they don’t
have enough power?” Han Yan Yao was concerned.
“Them? They… are stronger than us!” Han Zhan Meng laughed bitterly.
“Great! Don’t worry, dad! Wu Yi won’t kill the innocent! When he arrives
at the Silver City, he will only seek revenge against the Xiao Family! I
believe him!” Han Yan Yao’s eyes were filled with hatred. “I want them
all dead, starting from Xiao Han!”
“I hope so… but the Xiao Family…” Han Zhan Meng was still very uneasy
with what he was feeling lately. He could hardly describe it and could
only ponder harder…
“They… are very unusual lately.” Han Zhan Meng sighed. He could only
voice his suspicion here in front of his daughter on the summit of the
“What happened?” Han Yan Yao frowned.
“Very unusual. A group led by the Third Elder left the snowy mountains at
the start of autumn. They are still not back… The intelligence they
sent back is very dubious and I have long realized that. I sent many men
out to check, but none of them returned. The Xiao Family is becoming more
concerned with the intelligence section lately. No intelligence can reach
me directly! I feel a great sense of insecurity and imminent danger!”
“The Xiao Family… we have been too nice to them all these years!
Internal conflict is inevitable. No matter how deep our relationship was,
as generations passed, it’s not strange that their ambitions grew!
“I’m just concerned what will happen to my sister…” Han Yan Yao looked
“The Great Elder speculates that… she might be in the same situation as
you then…” Han Zhan Meng shook his head. “But I think there’s something
else to it! I don’t think something bad happened though. Xiao Han and
Xiao Feng Wu went as well…”
“It’s not strange if she’s in the same situation because the whole Xiao
Family is trash! No wonder I haven’t been seeing that bastard Xiao Han…”
Han Yan Yao paused before continuing seriously. “Dad, be careful of the
Xiao Family! And… don’t get dragged into battle by the Xiao Family this
time. We can’t get involved!”
Han Zhan Meng sighed and quickly switched the topic. “Are you going to
still stay here? At most twenty days later and the Jun Family will be
here. Don’t you want to come down?”
smiled dismally. She didn’t say anymore. Her eyes stared blankly at the
snow outside before finally turning back and stood before the ice wall,
without moving for a long while.
Han Zhan Meng approached the wall and saw it.
The four memorial tablets!
At the end of it was “set up by the unfilial sister-in-law Han Yan Yao”!
Han Zhan Meng finally understood his daughter and felt her sorrow! The
four names were like mountains that were crushing his daughter and
forever separating her from Jun Wu Yi!
Even if the Xiao Family was gone, the mountains in her heart wouldn’t
The dream of her life was shredded the moment the Xiao Family attacked
Jun Wu Hui!
There was no more hope!
The only thing that was keeping her going was waiting for Jun Wu Hui’s
revenge! By then, it would be the time for her to beg for forgiveness
with her life!
Is this the karma for the one who didn’t do anything despite being
silently and drifted down the peak, still so troubled…
Behind him, a slim figure in white stood amidst the clouds. Her hair
danced with the snow and wind as she peered into the distance. On her
breathtakingly beautiful face, there were droplets of tears that slid
down and immediately froze on the ground. She simply stood there, as if
she had always been there on the summit of the snow capped peak…
