Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-686
“Yes! I’d never loved before, so I didn’t know what it felt like! Thus, I
couldn’t pass that trial!”
The redness on Mei Xue Yan’s face deepened, but she still admitted the
fact straightforwardly. “I had no choice but to exit from my cultivation
and directly kill my way into the Elusive World of Immortals to demand an
explanation from them. Although our strength was great, their numbers
were too many. In addition, it was their territory, so they had the
advantage. I fought against Mo Wu Dao for an entire day and night, before
I was forced to retreat. But on the way back, I was actually ambushed by
10 Superior Supremes, risking their lives and going all out! Because of
my previous exertion, I was not even at 80 percent of my peak strength.
In addition, the long battle had caused me to become incredibly
exhausted. I was not willing to kill as well, allowing them to finally
succeed, inflicting a great wound on me!”
“That grevious wound caused me to become weak for a long time. Despite
slowly recuperating for many years, my injuries did not get better and
could only be forcibly suppressed! Although I managed to recover from
those wounds because of you, my strength had only returned to the peak of
the second level, and I could not breakthrough! After I returned to Tian
Fa, I… thought hard day and night…” Mei Xue Yan’s face had turned as
red as a rose, but she still continued courageously. Because, this was
also part of her cultivation breakthrough experience. If she did not tell
them the whole process truthfully, everyone might misunderstand and
become misled when it became their turn to make the same breakthrough.
“Day and night, I… pined, sleepless with longing… At that time, I
finally understood the bone-cutting feeling… to miss somebody! From
that, I finally understood, what love is! On that very night, in that
very moment, I instantly broke through that last trial of the seven
emotions, and stepped into the third layer of the Venerable realm!” Mei
Xue Yan said everything with a single breath.
The group looked at each other with some disbelief. To think that
breaking through from such a profound realm would be so difficult. This
mysteries of this world were actually like that.
“Then, what is your current comprehension of love?” Jun Mo Xie’s eyes
glinted as he asked with a smile.
Mei Xue Yan smiled lightly and did not reply. This kind of question was
not something that she could answer in front of others. However, her face
turned gentler, and the way she looked at Jun Mo Xie was filled with
tenderness, as if she wanted to reach out and hold Jun Mo Xie’s heart
Although Mei Xue Yan did not say it out, Jun Mo Xie instantly understood.
Mei Xue Yan’s love was the kind that loved in spite of everything! I can
change for you, and I can disregard the entire world… for you! All I
want, all I need, is only you!
A selfless love!
There was actually no need for her to say anything, and everyone could
easily imagine for themselves. Just how fervent and intense must the love
she harbored had been, for her to be able to breakthrough the seven
emotions trial and directly ascend from the second level to the third
level of Venerable!
Jun Mo Xie’s heart grew hot, as if a part of it had melted. He stretched
out his hand and grabbed Mei Xue Yan’s jade-like hands tightly.
A rarely seen warmth appeared on Mei Xue Yan’s face, and she allowed her
hands to be held in Jun Mo Xie’s gentle grasp. She felt the warmth of his
palms and smiled happily, “Beyond that, the trial from the third level of
Venerable to the fourth level will have to do with the might of Heaven
Jun Mo Xie’s body shook, as he suddenly thought of something. His eyes
gleamed darkly as he raised his voice, “Connected to the might of Heaven
and Earth? Could it be the power of lightning?”
“Exactly!” Mei Xue Yan nodded with a serious look. “From that level
onward, one will truly be considered as a powerful expert that stands
among the top! But, if one is unable to withstand the lightning
tribulation, their body will be burnt into ashes, and their soul
scattered! Furthermore, every breakthrough a cultivator makes in the
future will be accompanied by a lightning tribulation! And the stronger
one is, the more powerful the tribulation will be! Back then, when the
Saint King broke through, I heard that the lightning tribulation lasted
for an entire day. Over half of the Venerable realm Beast Kings and Saint
realm Beast Kings protecting him were killed and injured before they
managed to barely pass through the trial at the end! As for the Saint
King himself, he was nearly left with just a single breath of life after
“Saint realm?” Jun Mo Xie instantly picked out the keywords.
“Yes, Saint realm! Above the Venerables are the Saints! It’s similarly
split into four levels. However, it’s still too difficult for me to
differentiate those realms. In fact, I do not even dare to think about
it! One thing that I know through the old sayings is that every
breakthrough in level for a Saint is a hundred times more difficult than
for a Venerable!”
Mei Xue Yan sighed and shook her head with a dark expression. “There are
definitely a few Saint level experts among the three Holy Lands! Those
people are all legendary characters who participated in the last War for
Seizing the Heavens. In fact, a few of them have even witnessed two Wars
for Seizing the Heavens! On the other hand, the Venerable and Saint realm
seniors of my Tian Fa Forest are all stuck inside the Misty Illusory
Manor’s Beguiling Mist, watching over the Nine Nether Secret Sanctuary!
If that were not the case, even if the three Holy Lands had ten thousand
more guts, they wouldn’t dare to do anything to me!”
“In that case, the Saint realm is actually not the highest realm!” Jun Mo
Xie furrowed his brows in deep thought, before uttering in a slow manner.
“That’s correct! Our previous Saint King had precisely broken through the
fourth level of the Saint realm and reached a new realm: an unprecedented
height!” Mei Xue Yan had a worshipful expression on her face as she
continued. “From what I know, there’s no one in the current world whose
cultivation surpasses his. Perhaps there might be experts of the same
level at the Misty Illusory Manor and the Nine Nether Secret Sanctuary,
but they… have practically stopped appearing in this world!”
“In other words, the Saint King is still not the highest!” Jun Mo Xie’s
voice was bright and firm! He steadied his breath and continued. “Above
the realm of Saint King, there might still be many more levels, many more
realms of power! To this point, I am certain! However… that’s still a
matter that’s very far away for us!”
each other, and only Mei Xue Yan nodded calmly. “I didn’t think that you
would speak this way. According to the records, the Saint King had also
left behind some words after he broke through, and those words were
similar to yours.”
“What words?” Everyone asked in unison.
“‘To think that I’ve only finally begun my path today!’ That was what the
Saint King said back then.” Mei Xue Yan recited slowly. But the moment
they heard those words, everyone turned speechless.
The Saint realm was just a starting point?!
What kind of words were that!
If he had just begun his path, then, what are they who were sitting here
“Hur hur… the mysteries of the Heaven and Earth, as well as its
possibilities, are endless! There’s no need to be too adamant. Do the few
of you know how far away that thing is from us?” Jun Mo Xie suddenly
began to laugh while everyone was engrossed in their thoughts. Smiling
smugly, he raised a finger and pointed to the brightest star in the sky.
“How far? It must be extremely far away! Who can say for certain about
something that’s that high up in the sky!” Everyone rolled their eyes and
looked at him. They obviously knew that this Young Master Jun was only
trying to readjust everyone’s mood.
“Yes, it’s indeed very far away. I can guarantee that even if the fastest
Xuan Beast started flying nonstop at its greatest speed from the time it
was born, it might not be able to reach that star even if it flew like
that for ten thousand years!” Jun Mo Xie smiled lighty and continued in a
shockingly energetic tone. “But, I can guarantee that someone has
definitely gone up there before! Although the date of that feat might be
hard to determine!”
“!!!” The group was shocked speechless as they looked dumbly at him. This
time, even Mei Xue Yan revealed looks of disbelief.
shocked. That person might not be from our Xuan Xuan Continent. Or
perhaps, it might be someone who came from a place that none of you have
even heard of before.” Jun Mo Xie sighed lightly and continued. “Perhaps
you might not believe my words; but such a person definitely exists. With
just a single hand, he would be able to lift up the entire Xuan Xuan
Continent. With a flick of his fingers, Xuan Xuan Continent would cease
to exist! These, are not just some exaggerated words…”
As soon as his words came out, everyone agreed instantly that this little
fellow must be suffering from a great fever and was speaking nonsense.
Jun Mo Xie only smiled lightly and did not explain anymore. After some
time, he asked again, “If experts are so plentiful as to be as common as
the clouds in the sky, why are Supremes regarded as the peak experts in
this world? That’s the thing that I want to know the most.”
“There are a few reasons for that. Firstly, it’s because of the
requirements for the War for Seizing the Heavens. The three Holy Lands
constantly elect experts for that purpose. Secondly, a person who reached
the realm of Superior Supreme would have basically lost all interest in
the mundane world, and most of the experts would detach themselves from
society. Thirdly, once the common experts entered the three Holy Lands,
they would be like you all…”
Mei Xue Yan looked at Solitary Eagle and Feng Juan Yun. “You are
extraordinary figures in the world and could walk uncontested and
unrivalled across the mundane world! But if you were suddenly brought to
a place, where everyone’s cultivation was higher than yours, and some
powerful experts could even fight a hundred, a thousand of you… how
would you think? What would you do?”
Solitary Eagle and Feng Juan Yun exchanged a glance and replied without
any hesitation. “We’ll of course focus all our heart on cultivation. Who
could stand being stepped under the feet of others constantly?” The
moment these words came out of their mouths, the two both gasped with
So that’s how it was
As long as it was a person who had tasted some sort of accomplishment
before, they would definitely not allow themself to be stepped under the
foot of someone else forever. This was especially so for these experts
who had been so domineeringly unrivalled in the world they knew. Even if
the person stepping over them was an even more impressive legend from the
past, they would still be unresigned to such a fate!
something like that, realized how small they were, and how weak their
strength truly was, it would be easy to understand the effort these
people would put in at that point to regain their spots at the highest
peak. Once a person developed that kind of mentality, how would they
still have the leisure to roam the pugilistic world?
There were also countless opponents to train against in those cultivation
grounds; even if one did not wish to compare notes with anyone, others
would still seek them out to fight..
Because of this, experts had become so rare on the mainland…
As a result, “Supremes” became the overlords of the mainland. Or in more
apt words, the monkey reigns in the mountain in the absence of the tiger!
“Of course, much of the current situation can be attributed to the joint
agreement held by the three Holy Lands! Long ago, the three Saints who
founded the three Holy Lands were all truly righteous people! They made
the rule that Superior Knowledge Supremacies and above were beings that
had transcended the common world and would be banned from participating
in the struggles of the common world!
“Because at the level of Knowledge Supremacy, a single person could
easily handle an army of several thousands; retrieving the head of a
general protected by a million soldiers would be as easy as flipping a
hand. The lethality of such experts were simply horrifying to the common
people; if they were allowed to act as they pleased, they would cause
great calamity in the world!
“Experts at the Knowledge Supremacy realm and higher are also people like
all of us. If they received any great provocation, it is not impossible
for them to carry out a great slaughter. Throughout history, there were
many cases like this, and the three Holy Lands would always dispatch
their experts to deal with it! But the three Holy Lands have changed
greatly after so many years… growing greedy of power. It’s fortunate
for the common people that they have still stood by this policy.”
