Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-888
The sky darkened gradually and just as dusk was about to descend, another
Earlier, Jun Mo Xie had used all his methods, using the Hongjun
Pagoda’s shocking abilities to protect himself and Mei Xue Yan,
successfully digesting the horrifying effects of the Golden Jade Fluid
for his use. With the assistance of the Hongjun Pagoda, the two of them
had managed to tide through the ordeal smoothly.
After breaking through successfully, the two of them didn’t leave and
continued in the Hongjun Pagoda. Mei Xue Yan focused on consolidating her
cultivation; with the exceedingly safe, peaceful environment of the
Hongjun Pagoda as well as the ocean of pure Spiritual Qi as support, it
was the best place to consolidate one’s cultivation. As for Jun Mo Xie,
he immediately got busy refining pills and spent his efforts on other
When the two came out, they immediately went to a wide and secluded area
to face the inevitable Heavenly Tribulation that would follow with every
breakthrough. Only after passing through the Heavenly Tribulation would
they be considered to be completely safe… But who would have thought
that after waiting around for several hours, there were no reactions from
This point had caused Mei Xue Yan to feel incomparably troubled!
Humans could make mistakes or have oversights; this much was
understandable. But Heavenly Tribulations were the punishment of the
Could the heavens also make mistakes?
The two of them had advanced together and had even made multiple
breakthroughs in a row. In other words, each of them were supposed to
face at least five or six Heavenly Tribulations stacked up together…
but there were actually no reactions at all! After guessing around
blindly for a long time and seeing that they couldn’t simply wait
around forever, they decided to continue on to Chrysanthemum City and
also assassinated Xia Dong Ting that very night!
Previously, their strengths were not sufficient, and they couldn’t
kill. But with their strengths greatly improved now, wouldn’t it be
dumb to not attack?!
The target they’d selected this time was ultimately a third level
Saint. Even though Young Master Jun had grown much stronger than before,
he still needed to use his full strength to kill him in one stroke. But
because of this, the true depth of his cultivation which had been hidden
away before was finally unleashed, causing the Heavenly Tribulation that
hadn’t reacted for so long to… respond suddenly! And from the looks
of it, this was not a Heavenly Tribulation for just Young Master Jun! The
Heavenly Tribulation for the both of them had arrived together!
So the moment the two came out from the Chen Family manor, the dark
clouds in the sky had been gathering with shocking speed, nearly merging
into a single entity… It was as if all the clouds in the world
congregated at the same place. In a swift moment, the clear skies had
been completely covered!
Lightning bolts that had been brewing for an unknown length of time
arched dangerously across the sky, and the thick swirl of clouds slowly
formed into a gigantic whirlpool in the sky, finally turning into a huge
‘eye’. It was as if a hegemonic, one-eyed beast had taken over the
The countless lightning arcs did not fall immediately; instead, they all
shot into the cloud-eye, and completely disappeared.
Following that, another batch of clouds swarmed over and more lightning
suffused into the enormous eye…
Repeating the same sequence!
In the early hours of the morning, the entire clump of black clouds
weighed down heavily, causing everyone to feel an exceedingly strange
feeling, as if within a reach of their hands, they could grab a piece of
In fact, the tips of the taller trees had already extended into the dark
clouds… from this, one could easily tell what extent the weight and
density of the clouds had reached!
The more dense the might of heaven and earth, the heavier it would be.
Even the shrill howls of the wind that used to be so ever present in the
past seemed to be lethargic and slow, finding it hard to advance…
In the sky, there were already over a hundred huge cloud-eyes, covering
the sky in a dense sheet!
There wasn’t any lightning, nor was there any luster of any other
color, except for the color black! Black… this kind of blackness was
even darker than the night. Even if a person stretched their finger out
before their eyes, they wouldn’t be able to see anything!
The clouds continued to gather and build up, without concern for any
outside influence, but this kind of heavy pressure was so strong that
everyone found it hard to even breathe!
To the common people and low level cultivators, this kind of pressure
that came from the heavens and earth only felt like a stifling pressure.
But to high level cultivators who already grasped the Power of Heaven and
Earth, it was incomparably shcking!
Within the distance of ten thousand li, even all the Superior Supreme
worldly experts did not dare to move! Whether they be Superior Supremes,
Venerables, Saints, or even Saint Emperor existences, all of them were
scared stiff, not even daring to breathe a little too loudly. Most of
all… they didn’t dare expose even a tiny bit of their Xuan
All of them were deathly afraid that if they so much as moved a bit, the
attention of the heavens would drawn onto them, and this terrifying
Heavenly Tribulation of unknown origins would suddenly drop upon their
heads… Such matters were definitely not a joke. It wasn’t a
groundless fear, but an actual, very real possibility!
When Heavenly Tribulations arrived, it would usually only seek out the
person that had attracted it… But if this person had outside help, or
if someone coincidentally stepped into the radius of the terrifying
lightning clouds’ range, the Lightning Tribulation would similarly grow
stronger, becoming double or even manifold stronger than originally
intended, resulting in everyone being turned into ashes!
The situation right now and the scale of the Heavenly Tribulation were
truly unprecedented! Nobody dared to make any moves; even the stronger
experts were not an exception! Who could truly tell who this crazy thing
would fall upon next? If I moved, and the Heavenly Tribulation locked on
to me because of that, wouldn’t I die a very innocent death?
Not to mention, these tribulation clouds… were super massive scaled!
The moment anyone came into contact with it, it wouldn’t simply be a
case of ‘most likely will perish’. No, they would be dead without a
sliver of doubt!
Such a terrifying might, even if all the experts of the three Holy Lands
came together and combined their strengths to resist, assuming that the
Heavenly Tribulation didn’t grow stronger because of the number of
people… the only likely outcome would be that all of them would be
turned into a pile of ash, the remains of everyone mixed up together…
Even if the Nine Nether First Young Master appeared, he would still jump
far away with shock! Since time immemorial, such a strange sight had
never appeared before—not even once!
Ninety-nine huge eyes stared silently down from the sky, with great power
accumulating within them. From the start to now, there had yet to be any
movements from them!
It couldn’t be that there were 99 peak experts breaking through at the
same time, drawing the tribulation clouds, right?
But… why weren’t the lightning clouds striking down yet?
What were they waiting for?
All the signs of an incoming storm were brewing!
Finally! All of a sudden!
The earth fell silent!
The howls of the wind seemed to have been strangled abruptly, suddenly
A moment ago, the entire area was still filled with noises. But in an
instant, it had become as silent as to be able to detect the sound of a
drop of a pin!
Such a drastic contrast caused everyone’s hearts to freeze in an
Jun Mo Xie and Mei Xue Yan were perched atop a tall tree, as if afraid
that the lightning would not find them, purposefully moving themselves to
an eye-catching high point…
“… 19, 20… 35… 77…” Young Master Jun laid comfortably on the
lap of the great beauty and twiddled with his fingers as he counted the
huge eyes in the sky with a serious look on his face. As he counted, he
furrowed his brows and shook his head slightly. “That’s not right,
the numbers are somewhat not right.”
“What’s not right?” Mei Xue Yan asked.
“Breakthrough… under normal circumstances, there should only be one
cluster of clouds…” Jun Mo Xie pointed at the anomaly in the sky and
continued. “Since the two of us jumped through many levels, and we’re
also going through this lightning tribulation together, it would be
reasonable even if the number of clouds was slightly more. But it
shouldn’t be to this level, right… isn’t this just plain
Young Master Jun grumbled with some frustration. “Look, I advanced from
a third level Venerable to fourth level Venerable, broke through the four
ranks of Saint realm to third level Saint Emperor… that’s only eight
breakthroughs! As for you, we were basically joined together as one body
when we broke through, so you had the same results as me… In other
words, the both of us together added up should only draw 16 clouds. Even
of the clouds doubled because we’re taking it together, it would still
only be 32… But why did 99 appear?! That’s more than three times the
original amount. What kind of logic is this?!”
Young Master Jun continued angrily. “Isn’t this just toying with
people? These despicable heavens… where did they learn their math
Mei Xue Yan rolled her eyes somewhat helplessly. “Ah… why don’t you
go up there and debate with them?”
“Do you think that I’m stupid? I’m not going!” Jun Mo Xie refused
flatly. “Whoever goes is an idiot! What kind of joke is this, jumping
into the sky to reason with the heavens? Even if I want to seek death, it
shouldn’t be in that manner! Are you trying to murder you own
Mei Xue Yan smiled lightly, not saying anything.
Facing such a terrifying Heavenly Tribulation, the couple was actually
still nonchalant and completely uncaring, happily talking and flirting
with each other as per normal…
As the silence reached a peak and the darkness of the clouds turned black
to the extreme, a series of violent rumblings rang out through the
clouds, causing the atmosphere in the entire area to shake. A huge ball
of purple lightning gathered and formed at the core of the clouds.
Accompanied by a heaven shaking thunderous boom, a pillar of lightning as
thick as a water tank streaked down from the sky!
Directly, accurately striking onto the tree that the two were sitting on!
The entire ground instantly trembled and shook violently!
At this time, Zhan Mu Bai and the rest were all gathered in the Chen
Family courtyard. They were practically the closest to where the
lightning tribulation was. Everyone was so stifled that they could hardly
breathe… Just what kind of demon was undergoing a tribulation? To
actually cause such a grand and terrifying scene!
Jun Mo Xie and Mei Xue Yan both utilized the Yin Yang Escape Art at the
same time, turning their bodies into void!
The pillar of lightning blasted down, striking onto the tree in almost
the same instant it’d formed!
Hai Wu Ya and the rest all gasped with shock, their eyes filled with
hopelessness and despair!
None of them had expected that the blasted fellow who was breaking
through was actually so close to them!
From the looks of it, all of them here were doomed to endure this
Everyone understood that there would definitely be incomparable
explosions blasting out everywhere in the next instant. With this crazy
lightning storm, the area of several hundred zhang would definitely be
turned into a field of ashes soon, spreading gradually until all the
energy in the tribulation clouds was completely exhausted!
But considering the scale and quality of this lightning storm, hoping to
weather it safe and sound was simply a ludicrous dreams, and one of an
