Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-8
Chapter 008 Art of Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune
Jun Xie realized that his strange situation had further granted him a
mysterious encounter of epic proportions! This ‘Art of Unlocking
Heaven’s Fortune’ is immeasurably mysterious, and its effectiveness
will undoubtedly be far superior to others. As for the Nine Layered
Exquisite Pagoda, he had no doubt that this is an incomparable treasure!
No matter how ignorant Jun Xie may be, even he had heard of the mythical
legend of Hongjun Laozu. It is said that this Great God is the Master of
the Three Great Sage Gods: Taishang Dao Jun (Honoured Lord of the Dao and
its Virtue), Yuanshi Tianzun (Honoured Lord of the Origin) and Tongtian
Jiaozhu (Grandmaster of Heaven). These individuals are heaven-shaking
myths without equal under Heaven! For this pagoda to be named after
Hongjun Laozu, its abilities can never be questionable.
[TL: I must be a super ignorant person, then… Sigh…]
Jun Xie was almost overwhelmed by the desire to immediately practice the
Art of Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune, but was finally able to restrain
himself. Calming himself down, he inspected his own body and could not
help but feel surprised.
The surface of his skin was completely covered by a layer of black,
greenish muddy liquid. The unbelievably disgusting muddy liquid was
releasing a sickeningly foul stench. In addition, it was a very thick
A name with legendary qualities and origin suddenly appeared within Jun
Xie’s sea of consciousness: Pulp Rending Meridian Cleanser? Could it
be? After just that one time of extreme pain, all the impurities within
my body have been ejected out? Jun Xie became uncontrollable ecstatic! If
only I knew earlier that there would be this kind of miraculous effect,
even another round of pain would be no big deal!
Indeed, as far as Jun Xie was concerned, no amount of pain can be
compared with the benefits of increasing his body’s strength. As long
as his body strength can be upgraded, what was a little bit of pain? No
matter how unbearably painful it might be, it was still worth it!
Jun Xie stood up in excitement. Enduring the stench emanating from his
body, he swiftly ran towards a pond within his family residence.
Unhesitatingly, he jumped in with a resounding plop.
Suddenly, several voices rang out in unison, asking: “Who is it?”
Jun Xie snorted and replied: “Me! This Young Master wants to take a
bath; nobody is allowed to disturb me!”
“Ah, it is the Young Master,” After that, no more sound was heard.
Within the study, Grandpa Jun wrinkled his brows: “What was that?”
Housekeeper Pang quickly went out to check. He immediately returned and
replied with a bow. “It is the Young Master, it is reported that he
jumped into the Luo Yue pond to take a bath.”
“A bath? He jumped into Luo Yue pond in the middle of the night to take
a bath?” Grandpa Jun’s temper began to rise again, his nose became
twisted, his breath became short, he shouted with an uneven voice:
“This damned creature!” In a huff, he went to sleep.
For the past few days, he had been looking forward to his grandson
turning over a new leaf. At this moment, his expectations had been
shattered into a million pieces. All that remained was an unspeakable
discomfort throbbing within his chest.
Such is reality, the greater the hope, the greater too the disappointment
will be. At this moment, Grandpa Jun really wanted to drag in the damned
brat and beat his ass with a stick until it peachy flowers ‘blossom’.
Then this ungrateful grandson of his will realize why the flowers are so
Jun Xie was floating quietly upon the water surface. His body was
straightened and he relied on both his hands and feet to gently stabilize
himself from time to time, allowing him to float on without sinking. Jun
Xie felt himself awash with a feeling of comfort.
After having washed away all the thick layer of dirt on his body, Jun Xie
felt as though he had just climbed out of a pit of excrement. His body
was completely refreshed. The only problem was that even though his mind
and soul had completely melded as one with this body, its strength is
still nowhere close to where he was back in his past life. However, after
having ejected so many impurities from his body, the current state of his
physique, muscles and bones must certainly have improved to a shocking
level. Right? Thinking about this, Jun Xie’s mouth curled into a smile.
A distance away, the house guards saw their Young Master floating on the
water surface. They bulged their eyes as they stared at Jun Xie who was
floating on the water surface while remaining motionless, not sinking in
the slightest. What kind of divine art is the Young Master practicing? To
think that one can float on the water surface just like that. If one were
to utilize their Xuan Qi to achieve this feat, than they would require at
least a minimum of Jade level Xuan Qi to do so!
[TL: Now this is just a wild guess, but I am guessing these people do not
know how to swim.]
After dunking himself for a while, Jun Xie quickly rose out of the pond.
While his body was indeed refreshed, what follows was a feeling of
weakness, an extremely exhaustive feeling of weakness! Considering how
the original Third Young Master Jun never took good care of his body, and
considering the painful process of Pulp Rending Meridian Cleanser that he
just had to undergo, not fainting on the spot was quite the superhuman
feat for Jun Xie.
Supporting himself through sheer will, Jun Xie reached his room. After
having changed into a set of white robes, the tender Lolita, Little Ke
brought in a bowl of bird’s nest soup, her mouth set with a playful
No matter what world it is, strength remains the number one priority!
People may be able to live without having influence, but they must never
be lacking in personal strength! Even in his past life, Jun Xie had never
been so impatient and desirous of enhancing his strength!
Being thrown alone into this world, the only thing that could give Jun
Xie peace of mind is strength. A strength so powerful, he can hold the
life and death of multitudes within the palm of his hand.
As of now, Jun Xie confidently believed that he had mastered another
treasure, the mysterious pagoda. It remained the biggest trump card for
Jun Xie in this new world. Jun Xie believed that the secrets within this
unfathomably mysterious pagoda would not be limited to just a mere Art of
Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune. There would surely be other secrets hidden
within it! As for what they may be, that will be up to Jun Xie to slowly
unravel them in due time.
In addition, for the Art of Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune to be proclaimed
as the “First Eternal Art” strengthened Jun Xie’s inner conviction.
This mysterious art cannot possibly be an average run of the mill
Slowly recalling the practice methods of the first part of the Art of
Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune, “Great Overflowing Illumination”, Jun
Xie sat down cross legged on the ground. Mind and body as one, entering a
tranquil state of respiration, he slowly began…
“The aura moves Nature, the great illumination overflows, to surpass
the Nine Heavens, to thread upon the Celestial Fountain, grasp the
Universe; the heart becomes a treasure mountain, the divine spirit’s
Nine refinements, never to fall into the Yellow Springs…”
After having commenced practice following the method in his mind, he
unexpectedly felt nothing at all. Not the slightest bit of qi can be
felt, but this did not discourage Jun Xie at all. He started practicing
again, monitoring his body at all times without letting it relax at any
After who knows how long, Jun Xie had already practiced following the
methods inscribed upon the Art of Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune to
regulate his body no less than two hundred times, and yet there was still
no reaction! His meridians have remained inactive from the beginning to
the end. Furthermore, the prolonged amount of time sitting cross-legged
had caused Jun Xie’s legs to become numb. Even though his body had
undergone the Pulp Rending Meridian Cleanser process, the capabilities of
the body had yet to be developed. At this point, even his mind had
started feeling dizzy and the signs of fainting could be perceived.
Jun Xie took a deep breath one more time, trying hard to keep his mind
clear, a resolute spirit emanating from his heart: “I don’t believe I
cannot succeed in forcing out the qi! When it comes to being evil, I am
number one! Who can be more evil than I, the Evil Monarch? This senior
This senior will never fall before other evils! But other evils must fall
before the evil me! I am the Evil Monarch! I am the Sovereign of all
Once again, he entered the state of respiration. After a long period of
time, Jun Xie felt that his entire body would no longer obey him, his
every muscle feeling strained and stiff. He had regulated his body
according to the instructions of the Art of Unlocking Heaven’s Fortune
no less than three hundred times, and yet nothing can be felt!
Jun Xie closed his eyes, forcibly pushing back all the feelings of
exhaustion within his body, in his mind there was only one line of
thought, a stubborn conviction: One more time… one more time… one
more time… more… more…
Finally, after an indeterminable period of time, Jun Xie suddenly felt a
slight change in his Niwan Palace within his head. After that, with a
flush of heat, a little change could be felt in his meridians. But that
feeling was weak and trifling, unnoticeable unless one were to constantly
monitor every part of the body. While the qi flow was as thin as gossamer
thread, almost to the point of it being non-existent, its essence was
truly abnormal. This flow of qi was truly bewildering. For those who
practice internal arts, even if they manage to practice to the point of
feeling the flow of qi, it should not have condensed to become a solid
existence flowing within the body. However, the current Jun Xie who had
practiced to the point of stupidity was currently unable to realize this.
[TL: Niwan Palace is a cultivation spot located on the head. It is one of
the three dantian spots.]
At the very moment that the abnormal flow of qi similar to gossamer
thread appeared, the miniature seven coloured radiant pagoda suddenly
rose up from Jun Xie’s sea of consciousness. It slowly rotated in the
air, exuding a huge amount of white mist with every cycle. The white mist
slowly floated around; countless white threads formed by the mist, unseen
by the naked eye, suddenly formed upon Jun Xie’s body surface. Those
threads then slowly penetrated Jun Xie’s skin, all the way down to his
