Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-836
“Is that good enough? Your third uncle took the blame for you this time!
Satisfied now?” Old Madam rolled her eyes at Jun Mo Xie, but couldn’t
help but chuckle. “You little scoundrel, getting craftier now. We really
need to be careful when dealing with you now. To even set your uncle up,
you’re really gutsy now, huh?”
Jun Mo Xie laughed dryly. “Isn’t it because uncle… actually that
incident was just a moment of carelessness… merely coincidence, um,
“That chant is also coincidence?” Old Madam glared at him. Jun Mo Xie was
“Um… Grandma, let’s talk about serious business. I heard that the
family was in danger, so I came rushing over at the fastest speed,
without any breaks or rest. This journey was really exhausting hehe…”
Jun Mo Xie was a master of finding new topics and changing the topic.
“Danger… Indeed there was. But all in all, you shouldn’t have
returned.” Old Madam sighed heavily as she began to walk. “A small crisis
like this; we can still get through it with our strength.”
“Oh? Looks like Grandma already has a countermeasure for the trouble the
three Holy Lands created this time?” Jun Mo Xie asked carefully. He could
more or less tell that in the entire family, the one with the strongest
sense of pride and protection was this old lady before him.
“The three Holy Lands are undoubtedly powerful. But the Dongfang Family
is no herbivore. A family of assassins; if we don’t kill and people don’t
die, then are we still worthy of being called a family of the pugilistic
world?” Old Madam Dongfang scoffed. “No need to be so cautious! Roll with
the punches; that is all. You can accompany me for a few days, but hurry
up and go back. The matters here do not require you yet. The Dongfang
Family can deal with it.”
“Of course, with Grandma’s invincible might, conquering the world… is
just around the corner! Haha, who doesn’t know that Grandma traveled
around the country with just a sword alone! Your reputation spread far
and wide! Envied by women, superior than men! Making all the men in the
world feel ashamed with your sword! There was a discussion: ten thousands
of people have their hands tied, and not a single one of them was a man!
A beauty of her generation laughing upon the world, this might is unheard
of…” Jun Mo Xie’s flattery came spewing out fluently.
“Enough, enough… Your Grandpa Jun Zhan Tian perhaps likes all that
flattery of yours, but your Grandma doesn’t! Stop it!” Old Madam was
blushing, a gentle look in her eyes as she said satisfactorily. Even the
steps she took resounded as she walked; the aura around her had a tinge
of murderous intent!
“Indeed! I’ll be very honest; actually, I admire this part of Grandma the
most. Who in this world doesn’t like to be flattered? Everyone would be
giddy with happiness the moment people praised them a little; isn’t that
the problem of all those in high powerful positions! But only Grandma is
different! The lotus grows in mud, yet never contaminates and she floats
on waving water, never dancing. Calm, wise, farsighted, and intelligent!
Never accepting flattery from others! You can’t even be compared to those
people! I’m not trying to bootlick; I’m just speaking the truth—they
are all facts!” Jun Mo Xie continued boot—… continued to ‘speak the
“Well said! Humans really should not hear too much praise. We need to be
logical and have a basic sense of judgement! This is what those who are
in high places must do. And because only by doing so, they can make the
correct strategies! You child like to speak the truth, not hypocriticals,
and I really like this. Speaking honestly, doing honest work; you won’t
suffer any disadvantage anywhere you go.”
Old Madam crinkled her eyes and gave a satisfied smile. A radiance was
vaguely revealed from her face, with an air of ‘solitude is better than
ill company’ and ‘loneliness sitting at the top’.
Dongfang Wen Jian behind couldn’t bear to continue watching this scene.
He looked up in the sky, as he swallowed his saliva. This is still
considered ‘truth’? Oh my god! But he had only mumbled in his heart; had
he really said it out, he would be in a lot of pain…
“Yes, take the three Holy Lands this time. They definitely will be
getting eight lifetime’s worth of bloody bad luck from offending Grandma!
When I was on my way here, I even met four experts from Elusive World of
Immortals. They had even discussed some so-called ‘vicious plot’! Haha,
they’re trying to display their mediocre skills before an expert to be
Jun Mo Xie quickly pulled the topic back. “… They had actually planned
to do this this this… actually I also know that it is completely
useless; under Grandma’s deep foresights and strategic planning, that
so-called ‘plot’ is just a complete joke. If you guys clashed, it’ll
definitely be as easy as pouring boiling soup on snow, blowing ashes from
the palms, picking up a rocket artillery to hit a mosquito, um…”
Jun Mo Xie was covered in cold sweat after explaining the three Holy
Lands’ vicious plot with great difficulty. At the last sentence, his
But Old madam’s expression turned serious; she had not paid attention to
Jun Mo Xie’s last few lines.
Jun Mo Xie was trying his best to humor her—Old Madam could tell. Her
grandson knew of the stress and toil she had experienced during this
period of time and purposely tried to make her happy out of filial piety.
Old Madam was delighted and pretended that she was muddleheaded. Besides,
being flattered by your grandson was really an enjoyable thing. But when
they started talking about serious business, she couldn’t continue to
keep up the act anymore.
In fact, when Jun Mo Xie had talked about the arrangements of the three
Holy Lands, grandma and grandson came to a mutual understanding to put an
end to this exchanging of flattery.
Old Madam slowly walked and plotted. When she reached the main hall, she
suddenly asked, “Wen Jian, what is the conclusion of the negotiation on
the other side?”
back to his senses and replied instantly. “According to your orders,
they’re still delaying for time. I already instructed them to not only
charge according to capabilities, but also charge for travelling fees,
consumptions, possible accidents. I even especially reminded them to talk
about it bit by bit, and bargain for it cent by cent… so currently both
sides are very exhausted from the negotiation…”
Jun Mo Xie broke out in loud laughter. A negotiation like this would
never end! Because a new problem could be added in anytime! And talking
about the journey bit by bit, bargaining cent by cent for an assassin to
kill someone? It would be no wonder if the person was driven mad! It was
simply a more indirect way of rejecting, hoping that the other party
would find it difficult and back off!
As expected of this grandma of mine. How did she think of such a crafty
and oddly effective solution? Something like this is completely unheard
Hm, if you are not patient, then we can just call off the discussion.
It’s not us who refused to take the job; it is you, the employers, who
gave up of your own accord…
Either way, the decision is in the hands of the Dongfang Family… If we
do not deploy people, it is because the negotiation of terms failed.
Don’t tell me the three Holy Lands are shameless enough to come and
Using this strategy to deal with those hypocrites was truly excellent!
“Alright, just try to delay the rest. Just take on ten of them first. We
still need to take action; we cannot keep dragging on forever.” Old Madam
waved her hand and said, “Just remember the principle of ‘three no
kills’! You guys can make the decision for the rest!”
“This… but… but Mo Xie just said, the three Holy Lands already
planted their men around the targets… if we hastily take on a job,
wouldn’t we just fall into their trap?” Dongfang Wen Jian was stunned.
“We still have quite a number of men the family can deploy. Although
there are not as many high tier ones, but we do have quite a lot of
middle tier ones. We have no choice but refuse because our strength is
not enough. But now that we have gathered enough strength, why are we not
earning the money put into our hands? And not only can we boost the
reputation of the Dongfang Family, we can also weaken the enemy! Even if
we take on a hundred of this sort of ready-made godsent opportunities
that gives both fame and fortune, we won’t find that it’s too much!
“Enough strength? How did we gather enough strength?” Dongfang Wen Jian
was still confused.
turned around and looked at her second son in disappointment. “Mo Xie
just brought sixty Spirit Xuan experts. Could he bring them from so far
away just to watch a show? Can’t they be deployed?”
Dongfang Wen Jian was even more giddy. He tactfully reminded. “Mother,
perhaps you’re mistaken… those people are not assassins from Dongfang
Family; it’s not a good idea…”
Jun Mo Xie facepalmed, speechless…
“You idiot! When will that stupid brain of yours learn to make a turn?”
Old Madam was instantly infuriated. “As long as none of us mention it,
who would know where they came from? Are the three Holy Lands capable of
knowing? Even if they are suspicious, can’t we deny it? Why are you as
stupid as your father?!”
Dongfang Wen Jian was embarrassed, but he instantly caught on. “Mother is
Jun Mo Xie couldn’t hold back his laughter, he started cackling with a
Old Madam let out a long sigh. Holding Jun Mo Xie’s hand, she said sadly.
“Mo Xie, we’ve let you seen our embarrassing side today. Look at your few
uncles; all of them are so stupid. This whole head of white hair on your
Grandma’s head is completely caused by the three brothers… They’re
already so old, but why are they still unable to understand? When will
they be able to understand?”
Dongfang Wen Jian’s face darkened. Though he didn’t dare to speak out, he
was mumbling internally. What caused by us? Clearly it was because you
were worrying about younger sister… One word from you and all the blame
is on me now…
Jun Mo Xie chuckled and said, “Don’t worry Grandma, I’ll concoct some
pills for you these couple of days; I guarantee that you will regain your
youth. That head full of white hair,—it’s no problem. It’ll turn back
to black, luscious locks. You’ll be a standard, black-haired baby face in
“I’m not going to even ask if you are just trying to humour me. I’ve
already aged… why would I still want black hair? I’ll just end up
having people calling me an old monster. Grandma only casually mentioned
it; it’s not that bad like this…” Old Madam sighed with sorrow.
commenting anything. He just decided to change the topic. “Oh right,
Grandma, what is ‘three no kills’?”
“These are the house rules of the Dongfang Family! No killing commoners,
no killing of honest and upright officials, no killing of good people! We
must investigate the backgrounds of the targets of the mission, including
evidence of their crime! If we discover something amiss, we have the
power to stop the operation on our side. And we can even possibly go
after the employer as well!” Old Madam Dongfang smiled.
“I see! The ‘three no kills’ of the Dongfang Family… is also a type of
perseverance.” Jun Mo Xie exclaimed. “Grandma, you musn’t exclude me from
the operation this time. I’m a real certified assassin of our Dongfang
