Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-949
“Normally, your choice of avoiding conflict is right. However, there
are reasons why you have to go this time. Firstly, if you do not turn up,
it is equivalent to you fooling all of them. You will break connections
with all the heirs of the big families and the situation may not thaw
within the next few decades. It will produce a lot of resistance to your
Deep in her heart, Miao Xiao Miao actually agreed with his decision.
However, she was rational enough to know the consequences if he didn’t
“Besides that, there’s another reason…”
“Another reason?” Jun Mo Xie frowned. “Can you elaborate?”
“Do you still remember the two guards who followed you out? They are
disciples of Saint Emperor Cao! You ordered them to kill eight City
Officials and this landed them in custody as Zhan Yu Shu accused them of
murdering public officials. If you don’t go, it will be brought up to
the highest jurisdiction level of the Misty Illusory Manor and the two of
them will be punished! After all, the two of them were following your
orders and if you don’t explain them, I’m sure you will get in
trouble with Saint Emperor Cao as well!” Miao Xiao Miao sounded
“Hmmm? What are you talking about? When did I even order them to kill
anyone? This is framing! The two of them committed murder of their own
will. It has nothing to do with me!” Jun Mo Xie laughed scornfully.
“Getting punished for murder is a natural thing and I believe there are
strict laws in the Misty Illusory Manor. There should be no exceptions
under the law! As for Saint Emperor Cao, I’m sure he will understand
that it is more important for me to follow the legislation and not
influence the justice system. So what you’ve said is incorrect. Don’t
tell me that the laws don’t bind the big families of the Misty Illusory
Jun Mo Xie reminded earnestly and even questioned the integrity of the
Miao Xiao Miao was immediately astounded. What’s he trying to do? Why
is everything the other way around in what he claims? Zhan Yu Shu thought
he had obtained a trump card against Jun Mo Xie. How could he expect that
it’s totally useless against Jun Mo Xie! Not only that, Jun Mo Xie even
questioned them back! How aggressive! And… he really doesn’t care
about the two guards? Aren’t they fellow disciples of Saint Emperor
Cao? Is Jun Mo Xie so heartless?
Those two guards had followed Saint Emperor Cao for decades. Even if they
had no significant achievements, they had definitely put in much effort.
So what Jun Mo Xie was saying sounded extremely heartless and cruel!
Instantly, there was a tremendous wave of disappointment that washed up
her chest. Jun Mo Xie’s cruelty is unforgivable!
Miao Xiao Miao’s face flushed with anger. “Brother Mo, do you really
take the lives of your fellow peers so lightly? Even if you didn’t know
them beforehand, they are still related to you! How can you not feel
guilty if something goes wrong?”
Jun Mo Xie looked at her in surprise. He said softly, “What has
happened, Ms. Miao… why are you so agitated?”
It left Miao Xiao Miao speechless. She had lost her composure! What he
decided to do had nothing to do with her. It was the first time she met
Jun Mo Xie and the two guards were not related to her. Why was she so
She blushed more as she didn’t know what to say. She lowered her head
in embarrassment, but soon, she looked up again at Jun Mo Xie and the
disappointment and anger returned.
With Miao Xiao Miao’s status and experience, most people were as
insignificant as ants to her. Even supreme experts like Wang Neng and Li
Jie were nothing to her.
In fact, if she were in the same situation as Jun Mo Xie, she would give
up the two guards as well in consideration for her own reputation.
However, the way Jun Mo Xie justified his choice unexpectedly infuriated
her. She didn’t even realize that her anger was more about the person
than the thing he did!
Miao Xiao Miao was experiencing an indescribable feeling. If Jun Mo Xie
were to lose his cool and decided to face all the danger straight on, she
would also be disappointed that he was being impetuous!
However, Jun Mo Xie’s blatant rejection made her more uncomfortable. He
was too cool, or rather cold, to be acceptable. However, what was her
real expectation? She didn’t know herself. What he had decided was the
most rational. Why was she questioning it? For her, it was like a perfect
jewelry that sustained a small crack…
“The two of them… although we have the same master, ever since I
arrived here, they have wished for me to die!” Jun Mo Xie explained
nonchalantly. “I feel like it’s not worth it to save the two of
“Why? You are the bearer of the Free and Natural Physique. You are the
disciple Saint Emperor Cao wanted for his entire life…” Miao Xiao
Miao suddenly realized and understood what was going on. “Ah…
Jun Mo Xie didn’t say it explicitly, but the fact that the two of them
always wanted to be the direct successor of Cao Guo Feng was not a
secret. Jun Mo Xie’s sudden appearance took away their chance and all
of their ambitions. How could they not feel resentment?
“What a smart girl!” Jun Mo Xie casually praised.
Miao Xiao Miao rolled her eyes at him. However, deep within her, she felt
a comforting warmth. She pinched herself with her delicate hands. It’s
only a casual jokingly compliment, why am I so happy? What’s happening
to me? Why is my state of mind fluctuating so vigorously!
However, the warmth continued to flow up into her and couldn’t be
“So what’s your plan?” Miao Xiao Miao struggled to control her
emotions as her beautiful eye brow outside her veil started to curl up.
“A plan? No plans! After my tour, it’s nap time! You see, it’s none
of my business!”
It left Miao Xiao Miao speechless again. The whole Misty Illusory Manor
was stirred up by him single-handedly and he said that it was none of his
business? Anyone who heard it would uncontrollably want to laugh while
“Brother Mo, you indeed have some unpredictable decision making. I’ve
really got nothing else to say.” Miao Xiao Miao smiled helplessly.
“If you’ve decided, then please go ahead. But I think I’m going to
win a big time thanks to you!”
“Win what?” Jun Mo Xie suddenly looked anxious.
“It’s just a bet I made today. If you don’t go, I will be winning
it!” Miao Xiao Miao smiled on.
“Bet? What bet?” Jun Mo Xie frowned in curiosity.
“Five days later, the Spiritual Herbal Gardens will be opened for the
first time in a hundred years. All the seniors of Miao Xiao Miao will be
going there. And there’s a Rainbow Holy Tree in the Garden that only
bears fruit once in five hundred years. Five days later, it will be
bearing its fruit, so all the Saint Emperors will be going there to try
to plant another seedling with their powers. And on this day, they will
allow one of the younger generations to enter the Garden. That person
will try to gain the recognition of the Tree, and if he is successful, he
will be the next master of the Garden. Even if he isn’t successful, he
will still be granted the chance of entering the garden every year for
the next hundred years! And there are two people contesting to obtain
this opportunity. That’s the Eldest Young Master of the Zhan Family,
Zhan Qing Feng and I. So we made a bet and the winner will be granted the
“I see!” Jun Mo Xie took a deep breath as he became serious.
