Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-717
Han Zhan Meng continued seriously. “You killed the people who offended
you, but those who did are undoubtedly people of influence. This
influence they have is reflective of the responsibilities they carry. You
thought that since they offended you, they should die! But at the same
time, as you kill, you also kill off the hope of the lives of some
Jun Mo Xie did not disagree, but began to reflect on these words.
“In Blizzard Silver City, we gave great care to the Xiao Family due to
our ancestral teachings! But ultimately, no matter how powerful or
influential the Xiao Family is, they are still the subordinates in
Blizzard Silver City and will never be the Lord of Blizzard Silver City!
“Just like the men under the Jun Family. They also have their own
affairs, but when resolving an issue, they will bring out the name of the
Jun Family and use it as a shield! This may not leave a positive image
all the time, and even if it may seem like it does not do much damage
currently, it will eventually causes grave impacts someday.
“Similarly, would you kill off a capable subordinate immediately just
because he committed some offense and ruined the reputation or harmed the
lives of innocent people? Or make him apologize to your enemies? Beg for
their forgiveness? I believe you would not; if you were capable of this,
you would not be that domineering Third Young Master Jun!”
“And neither would I, nor Blizzard Silver City do the same! Because at
that time, the Xiao Family was the central force of Blizzard Silver City!
And the Jun Family back then was too weak, so weak that it was not worth
As horrible as Han Zhan Meng made it sound, it was all the truth.
“Even today, you are able demand for justice and get your revenge only
because the Jun Family had managed to successfully rise back up,” Han
Zhan Meng said. “There are countless ways to demand reason and seek
justice. But that is only applicable to ordinary people—you cannot deny
this! Only power and abilities are taken in consideration when it comes
to people of power! Justice is determined by power! As long as you have
power, you have reason! No one would choose to offend someone of greater
power and risk getting killed for the sake of their reasons and belief!”
“Among the higher class, sacrificing for the greater good is almost
non-existent! It’s always easier said than done.” Han Zhan Meng scoffed
sarcastically. “The saying: ‘The prince will be punished by the same law
that governs the people if they were to commit an offense’ was set by
rulers, but in reality, for the tens of thousands of years, which prince
did not have the blood of others on his hands? But when did they really
get punished? Even if it’s not the prince but the son of a magistrate, do
they really ever get punished? It’s only a pleasant saying.”
“The distinction in status has been set clear from this seemingly fair
and impartial saying. In reality, this is the same as saying, ‘if the
Prince is to commit an offence, who dares to arrest him?'” Han Zhan Meng
“With regards to that incident, the Han Family can only apologize, and
that is the most we can do. When the Xiao Family wanted to wipe the Jun
Family out, the only reason you were able to live till today is because
Yan Yao threatened with her life in exchange for your safety! And that is
why you can even seek revenge today! Based on this point alone, not only
does the Han Family have no responsibility to the Jun Family, we also did
you a favor!”
“That is the truth, no matter how you try to deny it.” Han Zhan Meng
continued coldly. “Precisely because the Jun Family was too weak back
then! Had the Xiao Family wiped you out, it would have made no difference
to us! Isn’t the only reason why you can seek revenge today is because
you have sufficient power and ability today?”
“I agree with Master Han. I feel the same!” Jun Mo Xie spoke in an
equally sincere and genuine manner. “Indeed, this is the pugilistic
world! It is a place that leaves little choices. Everything is determined
by power and strength, and justice is determined by fists. There was
nothing wrong with what the Blizzard Silver City did then. I can
“But understanding is one matter; how to react is another! I still seek
an explanation from you, and it is just as Master Han said, precisely
because the Jun Family has the power to do so now! We did not do so back
then because we were too weak; it would have been the same as disgracing
Jun Mo Xie spoke honestly. “You said that the Han family did the Jun
Family a favour, but I cannot agree with this statement because you did
it not for the Jun Family but for your own daughter’s sake, so please
don’t ever say that you did us a favor or anything of such sorts.
“So Blizzard Silver City still has to pay the price!” Jun Mo Xie said
mercilessly. “Just as Master Han said earlier, ‘This, is the pugilistic
“That’s right! This is the pugilistic world.” Han Zhan Meng said
sorrowfully after a while.
“Mo Xie! Can’t you spare Blizzard Silver City?” Han Yan Yao stood up and
pleaded. “How could your Third Uncle and I face each other like this…”
“Spare Blizzard Silver City?” Jun Mo Xie looked at her, but slowly shook
his head determinedly. “Impossible!”
“Back down, Yao’er! This matter does not concern you!” Han Zhan Meng
scoffed and faced Jun Mo Xie. “If that is the case, may I ask how the Han
Family should pay this price that Third Young Master Jun speaks of? What
sort of compensation will the Jun Family, or rather, Third Young Master
Jun, be satisfied with?”
aback by this question.
While Blizzard Silver City had an undeniable responsibility to answer
for, so did the Han Family.
But how should it go about being done? How should they pay? This remained
to be a big question. If the Han Family suffered, it would still be a
tragedy for Jun Wu Yi and Han Yan Yao! Furthermore, the Han Family was
not directly involved in that incident back then, and the most they did
was keep silent and watch the Xiao Family carry out their acts. Only in
the end did they intervene and prevent the Xiao Family from wiping out
the Jun Family. Even if they were responsible, how big a price should do
they have to pay?
While the Jun Family was innocent in that incident, the same could be
said of the Han Family too.
But Jun Mo Xie was not willing to let it go this easily!
Numerous lives were lost from the Jun Family; how could this debt be let
go of this easily!
But both parties were equally at a loss for words.
This question was like a hot potato; neither party was willing to catch
it in their hands.
After a while, Jun Mo Xie spoke. “Back then, while the Han Family did not
intend to defend the Jun Family, Third Aunt was ready to risk her life to
protect the Jun Family, so for Third Aunt’s sake, Master Han can make the
decision on this matter. But I only have two requests: first, do not hurt
the relationship between Third Uncle and Third Aunt; second, this price
must be paid!”
There was no way to go about this. Nothing seemed appropriate.
Jun Mo Xie was stumped this time. Having no idea was one matter, and how
to handle it was another. The more he pondered, the more irritated he
became, and even the way he spoke became demanding.
“You are clearly making it difficult for me! How could there be a
solution that gives the best of both worlds!” Han Zhan Meng laughed
bitterly. “I might as well go by the way you said it! You can do whatever
you want to the Han Family! I also have only two requests: first, Yao’er
must be happy; second, we are willing to pay the price!”
Jun Mo Xie was caught by surprise. “How could Master Han be this
shameless!” Han Zhan Meng had conveniently threw the problem back at Jun
Han Zhan Meng only laughed bitterly. You were not shameless when you made
those terms? But it is shameless when I do the same? This young fellow is
truly someone of the pugilistic world; he has already mastered the knack
of being shameless and thick-skinned!
“I’ll leave this matter to Master Han! This is such a headache!” Jun Mo
Xie laughed. “By the way, I’d like to trouble Master Han with telling the
people of the three Holy Lands to meet at the foot of the sword peak for
the final battle tomorrow! This battle shall determine victory or defeat!”
“The foot of the sword peak?”
“That’s right!” Jun Mo Xie confirmed, a malicious glint flashed across
Seeing that cold glint in Jun Mo Xie’s eyes, Han Zhan Meng could not help
“This matter is between the us and the three Holy Lands; I hope Blizzard
Silver City will not interfere.” A playful glint flashed across Jun Mo
Xie’s eyes. “I will also send a letter of challenge after Master Han goes
back to convey the message.”
“Alright!” Han Zhan Meng agreed quickly and said. “But regarding that
price… I still think it is better for Third Young Master Jun to decide
what is more appropriate… We’re willing to listen to your decision…”
“I can’t! I’m not suitable for it.” Jun Mo Xie continued with incredulous
sincerity. “Such a huge matter as this needs an Elder to make the
decision. My Third Uncle and I are unable to do so, which only leaves my
grandfather, but he is so old with age and it’s not suitable for him to
travel. Since Master Han is an elder as well, you are most suitable for
making the decision! I am sure you will not treat us too shabbily.”
Han Zhan Meng was enraged.
Despicable! Shameless! You can make decisions when you took your revenge,
but when it comes to this matter you are unsuitable?!
Han Zhan Meng felt that if he continued to banter with this fellow, he
might faint from anger. He unhappily dragged his daughter out of the cave
and down the peak, not speaking a single word to Jun Mo Xie. But he was
surprised that when he pulled his daughter out this time, Han Yan Yao did
not resist or argue but allowed him to drag her down obediently!
What is this? Why is she obedient? Master Han was truly troubled…
Watching these two leave, Jun Mo Xie finally decided to make a move as
Before he left, he look one final admiring look around and muttered,
“Such a straight mountain peak… What a pity for it to collapse…”
Then he disappeared with a flash.
