Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-843
This intense melody and singing instantly gushed into the soul of
everyone around, especially those who were part of the pugilistic world;
no matter friend or foe, no matter what their intentions were, no matter
if they were good or evil, in this instance, through this song
‘Smiling, Proud Wanderer’, that made its appearance in this different
world for the very first time, all of them felt an inexplicable and
strange resonance in their souls!
How many heroes, how many beauties, how many unpredictable situations,
how many grievances, how much love, hate, passion and revenge…
Many burly big men listened quietly. These iron-blooded men of the
pugilistic world had a grin at the corner of their lips, face full of
reminisce, suddenly feeling that hope and longing, as if they had begun
to have that pugilistic dream from their youth all over again… The
corners of their eyes began to turn moist…
Brandishing their swords, journeying the world, riding their horses with
their knives, howling at the sky, laughing proudly in the pugilistic
The song came to an end with a passionate vibrato! Like a peerless
swordsman had suddenly removed his robes at the peak of his time…
Following the end of the song, what followed was nothing but silence!
And only… complete silence!
Everyone was silent, deep in thoughts…
Two elders donned in white were sitting opposite each other in the corner
of the building. The moment the guqin played its first note, both of them
paid attention and listened carefully. They were completely enthralled.
The music had already ceased, but the two of them continued to sit there
blankly, that impassioned tune echoing in their ears! As if they
wouldn’t be sick of it even after three days!
The two of them had a dazed look on their face. After a long while, they
slowly, gently exhaled their breaths. One of the old men mumbled as if he
were speaking in his dreams, “Pugilistic… dream…”
The other old man opposite him gently smiled, his boney finger trembling.
Suddenly, his tears began to fall, sliding down his cheek and onto his
white beard, leaving a stain on his robes before landing on the floor…
He mumbled, “Everyone laughs, no longer will there be loneliness,
heroic feelings remain in the sentimental laughter… no longer will
there be loneliness hahaha, but how much loneliness has been swallowed in
this line of no longer will there be loneliness? Heroic feelings
remain… but where have the comrades from the past gone? For that
heartless and cold pugilistic world, how much did our generation
sacrificed, and how much have we lost? What did we truly gain…”
He laughed mutedly at himself, and bitterly, then shook his head. Finally
picking up the wine cup on the table, he closed his eyes and downed it in
one gulp! As if he were drinking his entire life experience in the
pugilistic world, the past that was hard to look back on…
Upstairs, the masked girl Zhan Meng Die stood there in a daze. She had
heard this passionate melody and agitated singing when she walked up the
stairs. She involuntarily stopped in her tracks and listened to it
closely, until now…
She slowly closed her eyes, an extremely moved expression on her face.
After a long while, then she opened her eyes like she had woken up from a
dream, exclaiming, “A great song that describes the pugilistic world!
This song had encompassed all the flavors and emotions of the pugilistic
world… Such a rich aftertaste! A haunting tune…”
The old man beside her was still reminiscing the aftertaste of the song.
He lightly sighed and asked, “Young Miss is not a member of the
pugilistic world, but how is it that you are so touched?”
“A song that sings of the pugilistic dream, a song that empties the
tears of the pugilistic world…” The girl laughed and said in a daze.
“I may not have ventured into the pugilistic world, but I can still
feel the emotions of a hero. This song sings of freedom and ease, plays
of boldness, but… the heaviest emotion is thick grievances…
furthermore, isn’t the Zhan family a pugilistic world in itself?”
The old man was surprised, then he sighed and remained silent.
Zhan Meng Die zoned out in her thoughts before she said, “Since I’ve
heard of such melody that is so relatable, how could I miss the
opportunity to meet this person? I must go up and see, see who is it
exactly… who is capable of playing and performing such an open and bold
yet desolate and lonely tune!”
Upstairs, there was no longer any trace of hypocritical peacefulness and
gentleness on his face. His face shows how extremely moved he was!
Although the song had already ended, he was still trying to commit it to
his memory, thinking extremely hard, beating his hands to the tempo, as
if this song was still playing, still echoing…
After a while, he raised his head and asked anxiously. “Brother
Dongfang… what is the name of this song?”
Jun Mo Xie let out a long sigh, reminisce evident in his eyes as he said,
“This song, shall be called ‘The Song of Laughing Proudly in the
“The Song of Laughing Proudly in the Pugilistic World! The Song of
Laughing Proudly in the Pugilistic World… truly, a great song of
Laughing Proudly in the Pugilistic World!” Chen Chen agitatedly
repeated it, his eyes gleaming. “The ocean laughs, the sky laughs, the
land laughs, the light breeze laughs, everyone laughs… laughing in the
pugilistic world… Hahaha… All the wanderers of the pugilistic world
since ancient times till now, which one of them had never wished to laugh
proudly in the pugilistic world?”
“But which hero in this world can laugh proudly in the pugilistic
world?” Jun Mo Xie said desolately. “And who has the rights to really
laugh proudly in the pugilistic world? Since ancient times now, not a
Chen Chen closed his eyes, after a while did he turn away and slowly
said, “Your song today is sufficient for me to grant you kindness’
just leave! Leave Chrysanthemum City! Leave far far away! Don’t step
into Chrysanthemum City forever! Because in this Chrysanthemum City, you
will not be able to laugh proudly in the pugilistic world, perhaps… the
moment you fall in too deep in the trap, you guys will not have the
chance to laugh proudly in the pugilistic world anymore!”
He suddenly turned around and looked at Jun Mo Xie with passion in his
eyes. “Just with this single song of laughing proudly in the pugilistic
world, I, Chen Chen… really am not willing to become enemies with you!
If you guys wish to leave, I will do everything I can to send you away!
You only have one chance; I hope you treasure it! Brother Dongfang, I,
Chen Chen… have been a hypocrite my whole life, but today, I am really
sincere for the first time! I hope you… can make your decision soon!”
Jun Mo Xie sighed lightly then chuckled and shook his head. Looking at
him with pity in his eyes, he said helplessly. “I already said earlier,
once you get into the pugilistic world, you can no longer act like
yourself! Chen Chen, for your words earlier, I shall also give you an
opportunity. If you leave Chrysanthemum City right now, and never return
to this place, then you will have the chance to laugh proudly in the
pugilistic world! In this world, there are indeed really not many
adorable people, and I really do not wish to have to kill you, who are
still considerably adorable!”
Chen Chen laughed bitterly. “There is indeed too much helplessness in
this world… In the pugilistic world or in the Court, even within the
family clan, couldn’t it just be where the pugilistic world lies? I
have already long resigned to my fate! I cannot even make the decision
for my own marriage; how can I be so greedy and ambitious to talk about
laughing in the pugilistic world, talking crazily like a fool?
At the end of the sentence, he had suddenly broke out in laughter full of
desolation, to the point of tears. He shook his head and said, “I seem
to have a boundless future, but ultimately deep inside, I am a tool of
the family! A mere tool! Brother Dongfang…” Chen Chen looked at him
seriously. “The hardest thing to find in the world is a soulmate… If
you really die, then I’ll be even more lonely!”
“Soulmate? You see me as your soulmate, someone who understands you,
but it’s a pity—I am not!” Jun Mo Xie calmly said. “And you are
not my soulmate! Because what I want, what I do, is to laugh proudly in
the pugilistic world!”
Chen Chen was stumped after hearing his words. At this moment, a crisp
voice rang out. “May I ask, who was it—who performed that song
Both of them turned in the direction of the voice, only to see a girl who
wore a black veil covering her face, standing prim and properly at the
entrance of the stairs. A pair of cold eyes were scanning the two faces.
At this moment, Jun Mo Xie’s sharp senses detected that the crowd
outside had slowly dissipated, and that dozen spirit senses ambushing
earlier were all gathering towards here…
Chen Chen had failed his mission!
Because he had initially come to sound Jun Mo Xie out. But suddenly, Jun
Mo Xie and him had began to sympathize with each other. In the instant
his attitude changed, his mission was considered a failure.
So those in the dark immediately changed their strategy. Looks like they
intend to catch me alive!
Jun Mo Xie gave a mocking look and said, “If my guess is correct, this
young lady here should be the treasured daughter of the Zhan Family…
Miss Zhan Meng Die, right?”
Chen Chen opposite him revealed a look of extreme surprise. He had never
imagined that this fiancée of his, had appeared right here, right now.
But the expression on his face immediately turned sad, as if he had
thought of something…
Zhan Meng Die let out a look of surprise, looking at the ugly man before
her as she asked, “Who are you?”
Although Jun Mo Xie did not explicitly say it, but him opening his mouth
before Chen Chen was enough to show who the owner of the song was. And
this was very different from the image Zhan Meng Die had in her mind.
In her mind, the person who had performed this song should be a young man
who was bold and free! A wanderer who was heroic! A lone hero with just
his sword, who looked upon this world with pride! It definitely
shouldn’t be this wretched looking youth before her!
“Me? I’m someone from the Dongfang Family!” Jun Mo Xie cackled
weirdly and suddenly stood up. “Great tea! Great music! I believe the
arrangements are more or less ready? Then it’s time for me to take my
Chen Chen stood up anxiously. “Let me escort you out! The song of
laughing proudly in the pugilistic world absolutely should not cease to
Right now, the sounds of clothes flapping away in the air above rang out.
A dozen experts were already here!
Chen Chen was even more anxious. He was even genuinely worried for Jun Mo
Xie right now.
Because he absolutely did not hope to see this rare person who could
understand him to die like this!
If this ‘Dongfang Da Shu’ fell into the hands of the Chen Family,
Chen Chen was more clear than anyone else of what would happen to him!
Especially when the person making the decisions was no longer someone
from the Chen family; the moment he was caught, it would definitely be
out of his control!
So this Young Master Duanchang who was always cold-blood had expressed
his genuine friendship, which was extremely rare!
“If you really take me as your soulmate, then retire from the
pugilistic world as early as possible!” Jun Mo Xie laughed loudly.
“Tanguan Hall! Truly a great place! Haha, pouring wine to console
oneself, friendship is unpredictable like waves. One has to be wary even
with an old friend, those who excelled in life first– laugh at me dust
my hat. The wild grass is green because of the nourishment from drizzles;
the flowers wishes to bloom but are met with spring breeze and freezing
cold. The fleeting matters of the world are not worth mentioning, and it
is better to take good care and live in seclusion 1 !”
At this moment, he was still looking extremely wretched with slanted eyes
and crooked brows, but his enthusiasm and disdainful attitude had greatly
displayed the freedom and ease of being in the pugilistic world!
At this moment, Chen Chen and Zhan Meng Die exchanged looks. Jun Mo Xie
had looked like he had just transformed into a outstanding and confident
youth who didn’t give a damn even when faced with strong enemies and
The graceful bearing in this moment had left the two who had always been
prideful and arrogant completely enchanted and stunned!
Jun Mo Xie let out a loud whistle and flew up, exiting out of the window
gently. With a pa he had disappeared out of their sight. His chuckle came
echoing from the downstairs, and in an indifferent tone, he said,
“Since that’s the case, please watch how I laugh proudly in the
pugilistic world today!”
