Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-868
Although Zhan Mu Bai was aware of the severe injuries the Nine Nether
Fourteen Young Master had sustained, and he may not really have the
capabilities to actually kill him, but this person’s name and
reputation still caused him to feel fearful. Especially now that he had
sustained internal injuries, it may not be severe, but his strength had
“Saint Emperor Zhan, was it?” The Nine Nether Fourteen Young
Master’s tone was full of disdain and arrogance, as if he were giving
Zhan Mu Bai a lot of face by speaking to him.
Zhan Mu Bai initially only had eighty percent confidence in acknowledging
that this person was the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master. But the
moment he had opened his mouth to speak, this eighty percent instantly
became hundred percent! He was absolutely sure!
Aside from that lunatic, no one else in this world would speak in this
sort of tone! Especially to a Saint Emperor!
Zhan Mu Bai’s emotions also instantly calmed down. Knowing that the
situation was already beyond bad, Zhan Mu Bai had calmed down instead. He
slowly stood up and smiled. “I was unaware that senior would arrive;
forgive me for not receiving you properly. I just fought with someone
today and sustained some injuries, so I do not look proper. I’ve
embarrassed myself before senior.”
The Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master had made a reputation way before
him, so it made perfect sense for him to address him as senior.
Furthermore, the Nine Nether Fourteen Youth Master was not only known for
his extraordinary prowess; he was even more known for his ruthlessness
and lack of hesitation in killing. If he had truly came for his life, he
would have already taken action without saying anything already.
Since he had not struck yet, then he definitely was not here to kill me.
As long as I don’t intentionally provoke this fearsome person, I should
be able to avoid a battle. Then, there is no need to be too anxious,
putting myself down for no reason.
Besides… it has been less than a month since this fellow sustained all
those heavy injuries; he shouldn’t have made such rapid recovery. Even
if I am still not his match, there should be no problem holding him off
for awhile until backup arrives.
With this train of thought, Zhan Mu Bai decided. As long as my life is
guaranteed, then everything is open to discussion!

Zhan Mu Bai had already made up his mind, so he instantly regained the
graceful manner of Saint Emperors. At least, he was not as frightened as
earlier. But anyone who was more wise would be able to see through his
attempt at putting up a strong front. Yet this was actually
understandable. When meeting with a fearsome person of his generation all
alone, out of all the people in this world, how many could really not
feel fear? Even Young Master Jun may have felt nervous back then!
“En, Little Zhan, if not because you were injured today, this Young
Master wouldn’t have come.” This Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master
“Oh? What does senior mean by this?” Zhan Mu Bai was perturbed
hearing this. He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at the Nine Nether
Fourteen Young Master’s way of addressing him. Little Zhan? This Little
Zhan me is already seven hundred years old… There were rumours in the
three Holy Lands that ‘this young master’ was the Nine Nether
Fourteen Young Master’s catchphrase. And this fearsome person of his
generation was at least eight hundred years old in age… being called
Little Zhan by him seems appropriate.
“Hehehe… Zhan Mu Bai, that day back in Tian Fa Forest, the attack
from your sword pierced through my heart and lungs, almost sending this
young master to eternal damnation. It was so mighty of you.” The Nine
Nether Fourteen Young Master cackled weirdly, his tone full of malice.
This sentence was definitely incapable of being said by anyone unless
they were there to experience it personally!
Zhan Mu Bai laughed indifferently and replied, “Senior, what are you
talking about? Let’s not even talk about back then; even right now, we
are still enemies. Naturally I must be unscrupulous! I only resent that
my Xuan skills were inadequate, not enough to kill you with a single
sword! I am full of regret in my dreams for letting that great
The Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master scoffed and said, “You sure are
gutsy. You dare to be sarcastic in your words even when facing this young
master? Are you really not afraid of death?”
Zhan Mu Bai laughed loudly and replied, “I believe that anyone who is
human would fear death, but if senior had really intended to kill me, be
it my words of sarcasm or fear of death, could they really stop Senior
The Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master paused before cackling weirdly, the
black mist surrounding him rose and swirled about. “Well said. Good
Zhan Mu Bai, just on this state of mind and poise of yours, you are still
worthy of being a supreme Saint Emperor!”
He paused for a moment. “But how do you know that I am not here to kill
you? Or rather, did you really think that I am incapable of killing
Zhan Mu Bai jerked upon hearing this. The Nine Nether Fourteen Young
Master who was just in front of him suddenly vanished, and a sharp
swooshing sound came from behind him, as if a sharp blade was cutting
through the air!
Zhan Mu Bai was shocked, instantly dodging it. He felt like a piece of
paper, landing roughly onto the ground. But he still felt a sharp pain in
his back; clearly he was stabbed by some sort of weapon. But under his
dodging with all his might, it turned out to be a superficial wound. As
expected of the instincts of a Saint Emperor expert.
Zhan Mu Bai secretly praised his luck, but he did not dare to take his
chances. With a powerful turn of his body, in the turn of an eye, he had
already alternated eight types of techniques, and changed his form over
ten times, trying to escape with all his might!
But after that sudden attack, the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master
clearly had no intentions to continue attacking. Zhan Mu Bai was
confused. Since both parties had already began to act, why did this
fearsome person stopped attacking? He finally snapped back to his senses,
and looking at the lunatic before him, he suppressed that loud shout for
help he had prepared. After all, the moment he called for help, it would
definitely enrage this lunatic. Let’s see what he wants first before
making the decision.
That Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master was holding an unusually narrow
peculiar weapon and seemed to be scratching his left hand with it. He did
not even look at Zhan Mu Bai.
Nine Nether Frost Blade!
Loud laughter rang out. Without raising his head, Nine Nether Fourteen
Young Master said in a seemingly delighted tone. “Back then, you had a
part in my severe injuries which have yet to recover even till today. I
was frustrated, so I thought I’d come and get rid of you today to
resolve this enmity. But I see that you are still relatively
straightforward and upright in your conduct. This young master seems to
be taking advantage of your injuries. Forget it, this young master always
has many enemies. If I kill you like this today, you will definitely not
accept it. I shall let you live for a few more days. That just now was
merely to tell you, that if this young master really wishes to take your
life, you won’t have much time left!”
The swirling mist surrounding the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master
thickened again, turning denser and denser, to the point the human figure
was barely visible. Then with a whoosh , it completely vanished, along
with the body of the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master.
All the doors and windows were still closed. There was only Zhan Mu Bai
left inside the room. Nothing inside the room had been shifted; there was
not a single trace of someone else entering. From start to end, it was as
if he had been dreaming.
What a terrifying nightmare. Had Zhan Mu Bai died just now, it would have
been the perfect ‘locked-room murder’ mystery!
Zhan Mu Bai stood in a daze, still in shock. He slowly moved his body
that was almost completely stiff, sitting down on the chair with great
difficulty. He stared in shock for a while, before breaking out in cold
That was close…
Since the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master had suddenly appeared, Zhan
Mu Bai may have appeared calm, but his mind was already in a frenzy. He
could barely force himself to keep calm. Back when him and the other
twenty Saint Emperors joined forces to ambush the Nine Nether Fourteen
Young Master who had just broken out of the seal and retained nearly a
thirty percent of his full strength, some of them died and the rest were
But now the other party had only come after himself, could it still be
good for him?
When faced with someone as fearsome as him, Zhan Mu Bai did not even dare
to call for help loudly even though he had put on a strong front, all in
fear of triggering the other party. Zhan Mu Bai forced himself to look
past life and death and attempted to converse calmly. But even so, when
the enemy had attacked, Zhan Mu Bai was terrified!
The response he made in that moment was purely instinct, a defensive
instinct he had cultivated as a habit!
But I didn’t die earlier not because I was strong enough in my
countering, it was merely because the enemy did not intend to kill me…
But here was the weird thing: That person only said a few sentences,
stabbed me lightly, and left.
Why did he not kill me? Since he had no intentions to kill me, then why
did he come? Then the things he just said, were they all bullsh*t? What
is the meaning behind this?
Some time had passed since that person left. He’d probably be long gone
with his level of agility. But Zhan Mu Bai’s aftershock started to hit
him in waves… His face turned pale as he sat on the chair in a daze.
His entire body trembling, there was only one thought in his mind: Why?
After a long time, the cold sweat finally stopped coming out of Zhan Mu
Bai’s body. He regained his senses and shouted, “Men! Come, Men!”
He totally did not realise that his voice was hoarse when he made this
The fake Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master activated the Yin Yang Escape
and exited Zhan Mu Bai’s room, quickly disappearing in the air. In a
blink of an eye, he had already left the Chen Manor.
Young Master June chose a quieter corner to land, before revealing
himself. He couldn’t help but wipe the cold sweat off his forehead,
also screaming internally: Why?
How could Jun Mo Xie not wish to kill Zhan Mu Bai? If he could, for an
enmity this great, he wished that Zhan Mu Bai would not live for another
second! But the problem was: he was still the fake Nine Nether Fourteen
Young Master, and not the real Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master!
Not that he was unwilling to kill, but he was incapable of it!
He couldn’t kill him!
With his current strength, he still couldn’t kill Zhan Mu Bai. Even
when Zhan Mu Bai had internal injuries and was not at his full strength!
Although Zhan Mu Bai was scared out of his wits by the sudden arrival of
the Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master, he was still a Saint Emperor and
still had the instinctive reaction of a Saint Emperor! And because of
this, Zhan Mu Bai who was suddenly attacked instantly gathered this Xuan
Qi in his body and used it as defence. Jun Mo Xie used seventy percent of
his strength and the Nine Nether Frost Blade, but was still incapable of
breaking his Xuan Qi defense!
He could only leave a small cut wound on him!
A small wound like this; even if you made a thousand of them, did not
have much effect on a Saint Emperor!
So Jun Mo Xie instantly made the decision to retreat immediately!
His objective hds already been met anyway. Killing Zhan Mu Bai or not,
the ending would be the same. As long as Zhan Mu Bai viewed him as the
Nine Nether Fourteen Young Master, his goal had been beautifully
