Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-829
“How is the current situation? Are we making smooth progress?” Jun Mo Xie
Solitary Falcon smirked, an unusually proud expression on his face. “The
progress has been rather smooth; the three hundred members of the Heaven
Destroyer and Spirit Devourer have all reached the realm of Sky Xuan!
Another five of them had already attained the peak level of a Sky Xuan.
As long as they maintain a tranquil mind they will be able to
breakthrough to Spirit Xuan any moment!”
“How can it be this fast?!” This unexpected good news left Jun Mo Xie
It really was too unexpected. To be honest, all these people making up
the Heaven Destroyer and Spirit Devourer were all old, retired soldiers.
These people had unserving determination and an unyielding fighting
spirit that got stronger when they encountered stronger opponents. But
none of them truly stood out in terms of their aptitude, and they had
gone long past the ideal age range for cultivating Xuan Qi.
Aside from their unyielding will to fight, the main reason why they could
achieve such great achievement lay in the great effects of the pills Jun
Mo Xie had provided. The extremely difficult training they had undergone
was also an extremely important segment!
Almost everyday was filled with exhausting training filled with the fear
of death! Only under this sort of bloody training, where they had to
constantly struggle on between the borders of life and death, could the
Heaven Destroyer and Spirit Devourer attain their achievements today.
But even then, Jun Mo Xie never thought that they would be able to
cultivate this rapidly!
“Looks like even you underestimated the effects of the Bone Tempering
Pill.” Solitary Falcon glanced at him and continued. “Although the heaven
defying effects of the Bone Tempering Pill mainly have effect on the bone
structure, but you must not forget that most of the meridians circulate
around the skeleton; the more coordinated the bone structure becomes, the
meridians will also adjust and change accordingly… They naturally
complement each other!”
Even Feng Juan Yun’s stoic face revealed a hint of smile. “After everyone
took the pill and underwent intense training that confronted death
everyday, every single one of them was juicing out the greatest potential
in their body. At the same time as they went through hardships, they
completed rounds and rounds of thorough change in their meridians! This
way, their bodies experienced metamorphic effects through a different
method. Although the natural endowments that used to hinder them from
advancing in the past were not completely eradicated, they have been
greatly reduced! If you check on their current aptitude, most of them are
mid-tier and above, and some have even achieved superior levels! Thus is
it not by chance that they attained their current achievements!”
“Then that’s great! They were originally restricted by their aptitudes,
limiting the extent of their achievements. Now that they unexpectedly
underwent a change in their bodies, allowing them to become more
malleable, it really is good news, great news!” Jun Mo Xie was extremely
elated. This sort of outcome was a surprise beyond his expectations.
“What about you guys? How is the progress?” Jun Mo Xie looked over to
Baili Luo Yun and Leng Ao.
“Earlier, we had picked out a total of one thousand children! When we
were back in Tian Xiang, we had eliminated three hundred of them. After
going through this period of training, we eliminated a total of six
hundred and ninety five people! Currently, there is only a total of five
people who are worthy of becoming assassins! After including Tian Can and
Di Que, there is a total of seven!”
Leng Ao paused for a while before adding. “Asides, out of the few people
Luo Yun selected from Tian Xiang, three of them were rendered useless
during a mission, so they’re also considered eliminated… There are
three more, and after adding them and the two of us, there is only a
total of twelve people who have completely fulfilled the basic
requirements of becoming an assassin!”
Jun Mo Xie nodded his head and said, “Twelve people, in other words,
after excluding the two of you and Tian Can, Di Que, there are eight who
were chosen. Not bad, not bad. To be able to pick out eight from one
thousand, this sort of probability is already not bad! Looks like the two
of you have a good hand at picking assassins! I am extremely satisfied
with this sort of results!”
Baili Luo Yun and Leng Ao exchanged looks, clearly surprised.
The reason why Leng Ao had hesitated when reporting was precisely because
the number of people was too little. The two of them were extremely
strict and would rather have nothing than go for shoddy options; after a
thorough search, only these few could make the cut. They had thought Jun
Mo Xie would throw a fit because there was too little people. After all,
the Heaven Destroyer and Spirit Devourer did not have a single
elimination in their members, but they did not think that Young Master
Jun would be pleased with this sort of outcome!
Although Baili Luo Yun and Leng Ao were prodigies of their generation,
with exceptional talent and outstanding capabilities, and Leng Ao hailed
as a disciple from the Supreme Assassin Chu Qi Hun, but they were still
limited by their experience, and could not understand the logic of the
ordinary impedition of life!
How many truly excellent assassins were there in the whole of Xuan Xuan
Continent? Only big families who had undergone all the vicissitudes of
life have and owned the method for the so-called nurturing of assassins
would have one.
Regardless of family, nature, personality, habits, temperament,
aptitude… to find someone who fulfilled the requirement of every single
aspect was extremely rare! Not even one in hundreds!
One was not considered an assassin just because they knew how to kill!
The requirements for becoming a qualified assassins was more difficult
than picking top scholars in the imperial examinations!
Ao were naturally gifted with exceptional cultivation and were even more
sharp-eyed when it came to picking talents so they would be even more
harsh in their judgement. But those young successors whom managed to
catch their eye would definitely be outstanding and promising!
It was already a relatively high ratio to be able to get eight out of one
thousand. Young Master Jun was an outstanding assassin himself, so he
knew about the difficulty in finding people with the aptitude to become
assassins. How could he not be satisfied with such results!
“These eight people… including the two of you, Tian Can, and Di Que
will still need to go through another round of refining and elimination!”
Jun Mo Xie slowly said. “It is never an easy task to becoming an
He slowly said, “Do you guys know what exactly is an assassin? What does
it mean to be a true assassin?”
Solitary Falcon and Feng Juan Yun broke out in uncontrollable laughter
upon hearing this. But at the same time, Baili Luo Yun and Leng Ao turned
These two prodigal youths who were born assassins had understood the deep
significance behind this sentence.
This was not only a test by Jun Mo Xie, but an extremely important lesson
for the both of them!
So both of them knew that this was not a simple question, but a type of
Because Jun Mo Xie would not let them answer it.
“Third Young Master, you are an amateur when it comes to this; from the
way I see it, all the Xuan cultivators in the whole of the Continent are
all assassins! Feng Juan Yun and I can be considered the talents of the
world of assassins!” Solitary Falcon laughed and said confidently, his
long hair swaying about.
his sentence, he noticed that Baili Luo Yun and Leng Ao looking at him
It was a look of contempt and pity, as if they were looking at something
ridiculous, watching a clown….
“What’s wrong with you two? Why are the both of you looking at me like
that? Are the two of you rascals trying to rebel?” Solitary Falcon
couldn’t help but feel infuriated. But afterwards, he began to feel
sheepish under the stare of the two assassins. Did I say something wrong?
Didn’t I say it pretty well?
“From the way I see it, there is only a total of two people who are
qualified assassins in the whole of the Xuan Xuan Continent.” Jun Mo Xie
looked at Leng Ao and smiled. “One of them is your master, the Supreme
Assassin Chu Qi Hun!”
“And the other would be yourself!” Leng Ao said in admiration. This
sentence was no flattery, but he had recalled what his master had said.
It was practically the same as what Jun Mo Xie had just said!
When Chu Qi Hun had returned from the battle at Blizzard Silver City, he
said to his disciple: “There is only one real assassin in this world! And
it is the person you are currently following! Because even your master
does not hold a candle compared to him! I am so much inferior to him!”
Back then, Leng Ao asked, “Why does Master have such high praise towards
this person? I never noticed any potential of being an assassin from him.”
Chu Qi Hun gave a cold laugh and replied, “If you could see it, then is
he still worthy of being an assassin? What more, the King of all
assassins? Rascal, you are still green in terms of experience!”
Back then, Chu Qi Hun had only a couple of sentences before departing.
“You can try observing closely; he will naturally be on his guard at any
moment! Even when he is in the safest place, it will be the same, and
this guarded state is not intentional, but out of habit—so habitual to
the point that he couldn’t change it. Other than experts who are able to
freeze time, no one would be capable of pulling a sneak attack on him.
“One more thing, he is capable of attacking at any moment! Similarly,
this is out a habit—a natural habit! A habit that he can’t avoid!
This… is only one of his talents, experience it well.”
These two types of opposite acts, attacking and defending, appearing on
the same person at the same time, and constantly equipped with both
skills. This sort of saying was not only ridiculous, but also even more
impossible! But why did Master say such a thing?
Hence from then on, as long as he had the chance of interacting with Jun
Mo Xie, Leng Ao would observe carefully. After observing for a great
deal, Leng Ao found out, to his horror, that what his master said was
actually the truth!
Two clearly opposing types of action had really been combined perfectly,
responding perfectly at any moment, assimilating into the capabilities of
his body alone! What sort of miracle was this!
No wonder when Jun Mo Xie was still weak in his strength, even when he
used his killing blow, he still couldn’t assassinate him!
Jun Mo Xie smiled. “Some people think that an assassin should always keep
an upright posture, standing like a javelin, and every single action must
have strict discipline. Most of the time, they will forever be
expressionless and be surrounded by aura of killing. Their eyes
constantly eyeing others like an hawk, that assassins will have no
friendship, no love/relationship, no kinship and no friends… because
all of these will become their hindrance!”
