Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-726
If they couldn’t win, then the strange races would invade, and the
mainland would fall into calamity. The common people will be met with
poison, and chaos will reign all over the lands. Wouldn’t the three Holy
Lands be the greatest sinners of the world? Furthermore, this matter
regarding Tian Fa was also initiated by them!
Nothing anyone said would make it the fault of Tian Fa! Even if the
strange races really succeeded in their invasion, the living environment
of the Tian Fa Xuan Beasts would not change at all. No outside forces had
ever managed to invade Tian Fa Forest. That was the case in the past, the
present, and will also be the same in the future as well!
The current situation was one where if they wanted to advance, it would
be impossible. If they wanted to fight, they wouldn’t be able to beat
their enemies. If they wanted to flee, it would be even harder! It could
be said that they reached an unchangeable conclusion! The other party had
arrived with formidable might and absolutely did not have any intentions
of letting them off. From the looks of it, their fates were already
Mo Xiao Yao turned around and looked at the looks of despair and
resignation on the others’ faces. Then, he gritted his teeth,
straightened his body, and walked slowly toward Mei Xue Yan. His steps
were heavy and resolute, and his face was cold and firm. A fierce fire
burnt within his eyes!
“Brother Mo, what are you doing?” Jia Qing Yun jumped in front of him.
This Savage Venerable was also in an extremely wretched state. His face
was sapped and pale, and he looked like an evil spirit!
Even in the most difficult and downtrodden periods of their lives, these
Venerables had probably never been reduced to such a state before!
“Get out of my way! This old is going to beg for mercy!” Mo Xiao Yao’s
jet black hair flew lightly in the wind. Although his face was tinged
with deep shame, there was actually also a profound brilliance!
“What? Beg for mercy!?” Jia Qing Yun exclaimed with shock and his eyes
grew wide. “Brother Mo, a man can forsake his pride, but he must have a
spine! We’re all brave warriors; if we have to die, so be it. How can we
kneel and beg, for the sake of extending a pitiable existence by a few
more days? Are our few hundred years of reputation so cheap as to not be
cherished? Even if we must die a valiant death, it’s better than living
out a shameful life!”
“Nonsense! Is this old man a person who’s afraid of death? But if you and
I perished, what will happen to the War for Seizing the Heavens? If the
mainland loses the war because of us, who will take responsibility for
it?! We still have 84 experts right now! If we are able to make it back,
we will still be able to contribute four Venerable experts and 80
Superior Supreme experts for the War for Seizing the Heavens! But if all
of us died here… what use would we be?” Mo Xiao Yao roared with rage.
His eyes were actually already gleaming with tears!
For an arrogant fourth level Venerable expert who’d walked unrivalled
through the world for so many years to make such a decision was surely
hundreds and thousands of times more difficult than dying! However, Mo
Xiao Yao did not have any other options!
====>https://lightnovel.site/He could accept
death, and was even more so unafraid of death. However, he couldn’t
tolerate himself turning into the greatest sinner of the Xuan Xuan
Continent! He was completely capable of being shameless and despicable
under normal circumstances. In fact, he would have no scruple about doing
the most reprehensible things while strutting around like a gentlemen.
But, the crime of becoming a historical sinner like this was something he
wouldn’t be able to bear, not even if he died ten thousand deaths!
He could accept dying in battle; he could accept being killed! He could
harm others or be schemed against by others. But at this point, he could
not afford to die! At least, he couldn’t die such a worthless death!
Because the War for Seizing the Heavens was the main goal that he had
been working toward the day he entered the Elusive World of Immortals!
Thus in that moment, no matter what, he had to bear the humiliation and
All for the greater good that he had been working toward his entire life!
Seeing Mo Xiao Yao struggling as he walked step by step over, his legs
seemingly weighing a thousand jin, Jia Qing Yun fell silent. He felt his
eyes grow wet as well, and he nearly dropped tears! Without another word,
he followed quietly behind Mo Xiao Yao, stepping forward resolutely!
Xiao Tian Ya stood silently and sighed deeply. Finally, he also walked
over together with Qu Wu Qing!
Mei Xue Yan saw the four walking toward her, but she did not feel any
battle intent from them. Her heart turned complicated. But on the other
side, Jun Mo Xie’s head was filled with confusion; the first thing he
thought of was: could it be… they’ve come to surrender and beg for
mercy? But when he thought about it again, he felt that that was
impossible! There wasn’t supposed to be the word “surrender” in this
Besides, what characters were these four? They were proper Venerable
realm experts! Even the weakest among them was a second level Venerable.
Most likely, even an ordinary Spirit Xuan expert would find it too
humiliating to beg for their lives, much less them! The pugilistic world
had always viewed reputation as more important than life itself. How
could a lofty expert like Mo Xiao Yao come and beg for mercy?
“Venerable Mei, this Mo has been defeated completely! We admit that we’ve
lost this battle!” Mo Xiao Yao’s face was filled with deep shame and
anger. His eyes carried an intense unwillingness and grief, but he still
looked at Mei Xue Yan directly in the eye, confronting his humiliation as
he uttered each word.
“For Venerable Mo to admit defeat with his own mouth is quite a shock for
me. I presume that the Venerable still has other words to say? Please
don’t hesitate to say them.” Although Mei Xue Yan’s gaze was ice cold as
usual, her tone was courteous.
hesitated for a moment. His mouth twitched hard, his face was bleak, and
his lips squirmed a few times. But he did not make any sound and simply
remained standing there.
At the end of his heroic path, this expert of a generation still needed
to humble himself to bow and beg; this feeling caused him to feel a
sudden intense sourness in his heart, rendering him incapable of speech!
Mei Xue Yan and Jun Mo Xie looked at him and suddenly saw a shocking
scene: Mo Xiao Yao’s hair, which had always been jet black for over 300
years, had with a speed visible to the naked eye, turned grey in a short
The entire thing had transpired in the time it took one to take a few
breaths! And Mo Xiao Yao’s hair had already changed so greatly!
One could see that the pain and torment in his heart at this moment and
how unspeakably difficult it was to bear!
Begging for mercy… even if a common street thug lost a fight, they
would very rarely be seen begging for mercy!
“As enemies, we’re at a state where either you die or I perish! The
winners live, and the losers die. Since the ancient times, this is
natural order of things. Killing an enemy that is dangerous to oneself is
a perfectly justified matter!”
Mo Xiao Yao swallowed the blood in his mouth with great difficulty. His
body looked as frail as a candle in the wind, but he still looked
resolutely at Mei Xue Yan. “We’ve been defeated and do not have anymore
strength for retaliation! Our… life and death is already within the
palms of you, Venerable Mei. There’s no wrong even if we die…”
Mo Xiao Yao closed his eyes and gritted his teeth, and a hoarse voice
came out of his mouth, “But this old man has come forward now to only ask
Venerable Mei one thing: could you allow this old man and the rest a path
After speaking those words, he remained standing with his eyes closed,
not moving. It seemed as if he’d turned into a statue in that instant!
Two streams of old tears flowed out of his tightly shut eyes, rolling
down his cheeks. In that very instant, deep wrinkles and spots appeared
all over his face…
Jun Mo Xie and Mei Xue Yan nearly did not dare to believe their own ears!
Begging for mercy!
A fourth level Venerable was actually begging for mercy so loudly before
This was simply harder to believe than if the sky collapsed!
After a long time, Mei Xue Yan finally shook her head lightly and looked
at Mo Xiao Yao as she asked in a solemn tone. “Venerable’s words have
truly exceeded my expectations. Is this because… of the War for Seizing
“It doesn’t matter what the reason is. Today, this old man is simply here
to beg for his life! This old man only asks for two and a half years more
of life. That would be enough!” Mo Xiao Yao’s eyes remained tightly shut,
and his lips trembled. His face was as pale as a piece of paper, but he
still uttered each word clearly. “After the War for Seizing the Heavens,
if this old man and the rest have still not perished and leave with our
life on the Pillar of Heavens Mountain, we will come to the Tian Fa
Forest on our own and die in front of Venerable Mei! We’ll return our
lives back to Venerable Mei!”
Mei Xue Yan’s expression instantly jumped. In that moment, she truly
didn’t know what kind of reaction she should have.
Even with her wealth of experience, this situation was still completely
out of her expectations! She was already mentally prepared for any
situation from the beginning, whether it be a fierce battle to the death,
an easy victory where her forces overran the broken enemy, or even a
situation where the opponents self-detonate to perish together—she had
already prepared a response for every situation!
But the only thing she hadn’t thought of was that Venerable Mo Xiao Yao
would actually beg for his life!
Surely this world was too crazy?!
One must know, that the three Holy Lands had always known that Venerable
Mei was only a peak second level Venerable. Even Mo Xiao Yao only came to
know that Mei Xue Yan had somehow broken through to the third level
Venerable after he came here. Even until now, he still didn’t know that
she’d broken through again!
But Mo Xiao Yao was a legitimate fourth level Venerable expert!
If one wanted to make a comparison, it would be similar to if a Supreme
was begging a Sky Xuan cultivator for mercy!
What kind of ludicrous matter was this! A moment ago, they were still
tearing at each other’s throats. But in the blink of an eye, one was
begging the other for mercy…
What kind of mentality would one need for this, what kind of courage!
What kind of endurance for humiliation was this!
If not for the sake of the War for Seizing the Heavens, would Mo Xiao Yao
and the other proud individuals do this kind of thing? But because of the
War for Seizing the Heavens, they were willing to endure the shame; for
the sake of the safety of the continent and all the common people under
Mei Xue Yan understood this point extremely well. The War for Seizing the
Heavens was also the sole purpose of all her efforts! Thus, she could
understand Mo Xiao Yao’s current emotions deeply! And for that reason,
she felt exceedingly moved in that moment! In fact, she very nearly
agreed in that instant!
For the sake of the War for Seizing the Heavens, Mo Xiao Yao was actually
able to make such a sacrifice, discarding the reputation that he had
worked so hard to build for over 300 years. If so, what was so important
that she couldn’t give up on? She had always viewed the War for Seizing
the Heavens as more important than any other matter and the purpose of
all her hard work throughout her life! Even if Mo Xiao Yao went back on
his words, she had no grounds to reject him now!
“Wait!” Jun Mo Xie opened his mouth, his eyes as cold as ice. “Mo Xiao
Yao, Wandering Venerable, do you believe that by using the name of the
War for Seizing the Heavens, asking for mercy in the name of the world
and bringing up the suffering of the world, that we would let you go?
Furthermore, we would be moved to tears and escort you and your disgraced
These words were like the sharpest needle, stabbing deeply into Mo Xiao
entire body spasmed with pain and his facial muscles twitched animatedly.
However, he still did not say anything.
“Did you think that by making such a large sacrifice, it would be right
and natural that we leave you a path of life? But is it truly like that?”
Jun Mo Xie continued coldly.
“Mo Xie! This matter concerns the War for Seizing the Heavens; all the
secular arguments are but minor matters! Venerable Mo’s request is for
the sake of the War for Seizing the Heavens and the safety of the
continent; his feelings… I can understand them!” Mei Xue Yan hurriedly
“But I cannot understand them! When men are speaking, a woman like you
should shut her mouth! Go and stand to the side!” Jun Mo Xie remained
unmoved as he scolded with a stern voice. Taking one step forward, he
stood at the front of the entire troop.
