Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-840
“Caution steers a ship for ten thousand years. This matter is extremely
important, and it will determine whether or not our Chen Family can take
another step forward. We cannot afford to be careless! Furthermore,
according to the report, the strength of the forces the Dongfang Family
sent this time was extremely difficult to see through. If we send anyone
else, and they end up startling the grass and scaring the snake away, the
consequences will not be good.” Chen Qing Tian’s face was sullen, but
his eyes shone with a bright gleam.
Although Chen Qing Yun was still somewhat unable to understand, he did
not say much more and left to pass down the order.
Chen Qing Tian looked at his third brother walking out of the hall with
an expressionless face. However, his heart was actually turbulent like an
ocean. “Third brother ah, third brother; the importance of this matter,
how could it simply concern just a mere worldly Dongfang Family? What
we’re doing is actually the grand vengeance mission of the Elusive
World of Immortals and Lord Mo Wu Dao! Old ancestor Chen Chong passed
away, and our Chen Family no longer has anything to rely on in the three
Holy Lands. From the looks of it, in just a few more generations, we will
be thoroughly stepped over by the other families. This task that the
Elusive World of Immortals gave us this time is equivalent to a huge
opportunity! If we don’t perform well, the Chen Family’s days… may
not last long…”
Chen Qing Tian was both excited and worried when he thought to here. This
was the first time in many generations that the three Holy Lands had
given them an important task. If they could handle this matter well, they
would naturally obtain Palace Lord Mo Wu Dao’s favor. As long as the
latter was happy and was willing to bestow them with a few cultivation
techniques, martial skills, or other good things, it would be enough to
allow the Chen Family to rise even further.
That way, although they lost Chen Chong, their old ancestor, as long as
they gained the Palace Lord of the Elusive World of Immortals as their
new backing, they would instead not decline, but rather rise to greater
But if they failed, not only would the Chen Family have to face the
counterattack of the Dongfang Family, even the other families under the
three Holy Lands would take the chance to kick them while they were down.
At that time, the family’s declination would simply be an expected
result. Even though their allied family, the Zhan Family, might not do
anything at the moment, if it came to the worst case scenario, it would
not be an impossible matter for the entire Chen Family to be wiped out!
Just thinking about that horrible result, Chen Qing Tian felt his entire
body shiver uncontrollably.
So it was not wrong to say that this matter of dealing with the Dongfang
Family was undoubtedly a huge opportunity! At the same time, it was also
a knife hanging above their heads. Chen Qing Tian was determined to not
make any mistakes! No matter the price, they could only succeed and were
not allowed to fail!
As such, even for this ‘minor’ task of information gathering, he
still sent out his most valued eldest son—Chen Chen!
The Xuan Xuan Continent was a place where talent was abound like the
clouds in the sky. But there were only four most well known geniuses. All
of them were young masters of aristocratic families and were jointly
termed the Four Great Young Masters.
Although the Xuan cultivations of the Four Great Young Masters were
considered extraordinary, they were not all that high level. But if one
judged them by their minds, their schemes, and quick wittedness, it would
truly be hard to determine a superior one among them.
The modest gentleman, gentle as jade. Young Master White Jade, Yu Chao
The graceful gentleman, carefree as the wind. The Carefree Young Master,
Li You Ran.
Verdant bamboo, gaze piercing to the end of the skies. Sky’s Edge Young
Master, Duan Tian Ya.
No intimate friends who understand him, grief stricken; Heartbreak Young
Master, Chen Chen.
This Chen Chen was exactly the Heartbreak Young Master among the Four
Great Young Masters!
Chen Chen was a rare genius that appeared after several hundred years in
the Chen Family! Only he was different from the other three great young
masters. He was considered the odd one out among the Four Great Young
Masters. Because this Chen Chen was actually extremely well versed in
both martial arts and literature, and was very accomplished in both areas
as well. His results in Xuan cultivation could be seen easily. At such a
young age, he had already entered the middle stages of Sky Xuan. With
just one more step, he would be at the peak of Sky Xuan! And this year,
he was only 26 years old!
Just looking at his cultivation talent, he was even comparable to a
genius like Baili Luo Yun. One could even say that if Baili Luo Yun had
not met Jun Mo Xie, the two would not even be on the same level given a
bit more time!
Chen Chen was also considered the first cultivation prodigy in over 500
years that could follow in their ancestor, Chen Chong’s, footsteps!
Chen Chen was not only talented in cultivation; his literary talent was
extraordinary, his mind was deep and scheming, and he was also well
versed in music—especially in the ‘three formidables’. These three
formidables were the zither, flute and the xiao. When he played on those
instruments, it would cause the audience to sink into the music, even
forgetting to extricate themselves. He would often sigh longly, lamenting
that ‘although the world is vast, there isn’t a single person who can
match my talent for me to confide in’. For this reason, he was also
nicknamed ‘Hate Confidant’.
And the moment this person attacked, his methods were exceedingly
ruthless, without a shred of mercy. Someone once made a poem about him:
“Heartbreak Young Master hate no confidant, with the last rhythm of the
song, striking out and breaking hearts of men!”
Everyone including the Zhan Family agreed that if Chen Chen continued to
grow at his current speed, he would become the Chen Family’s second
Saint level expert after Chen Chong! In fact… he could even turn into a
Saint King in the future!
This was also a big reason why the Zhan Family had intentionally improved
their relationship with the Chen Family!
The other point was that Chen Chen and the pearl of the Zhan Family,
their youngest daughter, the youngest cultivation prodigy of the Zhan
Family and also the publicly acknowledged number one beauty in the Yu
Tang Kingdom, Zhan Meng Die, were engaged to be married. If their plan to
deal with the Dongfang Family was accomplished smoothly, Chen Chen would
formally marry Zhan Meng Die, binding the two families together!
Chen Qing Tian had sent his trump card Chen Chen out right from the
start. One could say that the importance he attached to the forces that
Dongfang Wen Qing had sent over this time had reached an extreme level!
“Besides that, let’s invite the four lordships of the family to
follow alongside the First Young Master. The priority is to ensure his
personal safety!” Chen Qing Tian continued, making his decision.
Chen Chen was the future and hope of the Chen Family. Nothing was allowed
to happen to him!
“Since Young Master Chen Chen is personally acting, us two old men will
also follow along in the darkness. The two of us are also very interested
in seeing what kind of talent that black faced youngster from the
Dongfang Family is like. We’ll also take the chance to experience the
‘ferocious and heavy killing intent’ of those 20 guards ourselves.
Keke.” The white robed old man on the left stroked his long beard and
said with a slight smile. When he mentioned the words ‘ferocious and
heavy killing intent’, his tone became heavy and a disdainful laugh
could be heard.
“Many thanks to Elder Li for his concern!” Chen Qing Tian cupped his
hands with joy. With these two people following, Chen Chen’s safety was
more or less guaranteed!
Inside Chrysanthemum City.
Golden Chrysanthemum Inn.
Jun Mo Xie and the rest had stopped here temporarily to rest. Dongfang
Wen Qing took out some gold and directly booked the entire inn.
Dongfang First Master’s high profile actions had left Jun Mo Xie
somewhat baffled. Assassins were people who specialized in sneak attacks
and as their names implied, it was always better to be as low profile as
possible. But Dongfang Wen Qing’s actions were completely opposite to
When Jun Mo Xie asked him about it, Dongfang Wen Qing smiled bitterly and
shook his head. “Chrysanthemum City is the territory of the Chen
Family. Their influence had already spread into every single business in
this city long ago. I believe that when we were still several hundred li
away, they were already keeping tabs on all of our movements, to the
point where they were clear about every detail. If we still tried to
sneak around and behave discreetly, that would only be a joke in their
eyes. If that’s the case, we might as well move around in a clear and
aboveboard manner. We’ll take things one step at a time from here.”
Jun Mo Xie turned speechless. “Since it’s like that, I’m going out
to take a stroll. I’d like to see what kind of fun stuff they have in
this Chrysanthemum City.”
Dongfang Wen Qing looked at him steadily before nodding after a long
time. “Looks like you have your own calculations. In that case, it’s
also good for you to go out and take a look. However, you need to be
careful in all things. Do not overly display your abilities and attract
He had no choice but to be cautious. The most important element in this
mission was Jun Mo Xie. This was also the main reason the Old Madam
Dongfang had arranged for Jun Mo Xie to follow him.
All along the way, they did not conceal their movements. Thus, Jun Mo
Xie’s identity would be the enemy’s greatest question! The Chen
Family had most likely found out about them, and that utterly clueless
bunch would most likely try all kinds of methods to find out everything
about Jun Mo Xie.
So Jun Mo Xie going out by himself this time was going to confuse them
further, hopefully revealing a way to counter their schemes! And Dongfang
Wen Qing also believed that Jun Mo Xie definitely had his own plans! As
such, he was quite relaxed.
Jun Mo Xie smiled lightly and went out directly, without bringing anyone
“Aren’t you guys following him? If something happens, what would you
do?” Although Dongfang Wen Qing was very confident in Jun Mo Xie, just
seeing him walk out like that by himself still gave him quite a shock.
“Dongfang First Master, please be rest assured. With the abilities of
our Young Master, unless he bumps into tens of Saint King or Saint
Emperor level experts, he will definitely be fine. The target this time
is only a mere Chen Family, and they are no more than prancing clowns in
our sights. Most likely, Young Master has his own plans in his heart.
Otherwise, if it’s just to trample this little Chen Family, Young
Master need not even waste his energy. Just the few of us is already
enough to settle them!” One of the Heaven Destroyer team soldier said
with a light smile.
“Gulp…” Dongfang First Master nearly choked on his own breath and
passed out on the spot upon hearing those words. Truly, the servant’s
arrogance always matched the master’s pride. Who do you think your
Young Master is? To say that unless he bumps into tens of Saint King or
Saint Emperor level experts, he will definitely be fine?! Those are all
legendary characters; isn’t your bragging truly too ridiculous? Do you
think that your Young Master is a god?
Dongfang First Master was completely unable to reply to such a statement.
Snorting huffily, he stomped back into his room with a black face. As he
made his way up the stairs, loud booming sounds rang out as he stamped
When Jun Mo Xie walked out, he purposefully stopped for a moment at the
entrance of the inn. Then, he arrogantly fluffed his cloak and walked out
in the direction of the rising sun, his legs opened wide like a crab’s.
A proper east-west road was treaded as if it were a north-south road. His
arms swung self importantly with every step, as if he owned the entire
——Perhaps even the most arrogant hooligan did not behave like that…
From his perception, at least a dozen figures around the road suddenly
dashed off, seemingly to deliver a report…
“Being too handsome is really too troublesome…” Young Master Jun
squinted his abnormally sized eyes and cracked a light smile, causing his
crooked lips to go even more askew. “Those people must have gone to
inform the missus of their family to tell them to come and witness this
Young Master’s radiance!”
With a pui sound, he turned his head and spat out a large globble of
saliva before continuing on his path, swinging and strutting around like
a particularly ugly crab.
After some time, he heard someone shouting from a distance away: “Hurry
up, Young Master Chen is going to perform today at the Tanguan Hall and
organize a Grand Music Banquet. If we’re late, there won’t be any
more seats… This is a rare musical feast that one would not get to see
even in several years…”
In an instant, countless people cheered and ran off.
All of a sudden, the street was filled with people, all running towards a
Grand Music Banquet? There’s a Grand Music Banquet right after I come
here? And it’s organized by the Chen Family’s First Young Master? Jun
Mo Xie snorted twice with his nose as he grabbed a person running past
him. “Where’s the Tanguan Hall?”
That person struggled for a moment but did not manage to free himself. It
was as if a steel clamp had wrapped itself around his arm, and his
muscles throbbed with pain. Left with no choice, he asked with annoyance,
“You don’t even know the Tanguan Hall?”
“Tch! If I knew, why would I need to ask you?” Young Master Jun spat
with annoyance. “Why are your words no different than fart!”
