Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-959
It was a pity that such a meticulous set-up was determined to fail.
Because the Zhan Family just had to meet with an impersonator, Jun Mo
Xie! And this imposter had boundless power…
This great plan the Zhan Family had painstakingly prepared was supposed
to be an unstoppable torrent, but it suddenly crashed right into the
tallest pillar in the world…
Destined for tragedy!
As the old saying goes, ‘It is up to man to plot and scheme, but its
success is all up to the heavens!’ Jun Mo Xie really felt like the old
ancestor’s words were really too damn true; the things of the world
were truly too bizarre and ridiculous…
“Just a single round of competition will do? Just that simple?” Jun
Mo Xie asked, revealing no emotions.
“Of course it wouldn’t be that simple!” Zhan Yu Shu gave an
arrogant wide smile. “Actually, it is not a big deal, that is… since
there is competition, then naturally, there must be stakes! And the
stakes are what we really desire!”
“Stakes? You are competing with me and you have requests?” Jun Mo Xie
“Naturally there are requests; if there are no benefits, wouldn’t we
have gone through all this fuss for nothing, wasting all this great
manpower and physical resources? If there are no equivalent stakes, then
it’d be sorry to the great prodigy Mo’s ‘legendary’ status!”
Zhan Yu Shu said in a slow and serious tone. “The requests are simple,
no matter which field, if you lose, then from today onwards, for the rest
of your life, you are not allowed to touch any of the resources in that
line! Be it positions, or physical objects… etcetera…
“For example, if you lose at drawing and painting, then for your entire
life, you must not mention drawing or painting! The same goes for the
Zhan Yu Shu laughed. “Aside from this, you must promise us three
requests! Three requests that you are absolutely unable to refuse or
reject, no matter the circumstance or whatever the request! This includes
“If you do not have any objections, we can immediately draw up a
contract, and we shall all sign it personally and stamp it with our
blood. And swear in the name of our ancestors that we will not go back on
this vow forever!”
Zhan Yu Shu’s expression turned eerie. “Of course, if the great
prodigy Mo doesn’t have the guts, you may leave, and the competition
shall be called off. But I must reiterate on this point: if this
competition successfully completes, no matter how it ends, we will not
make things difficult for you! But if you intend to just run off
pathetically, then in the name of the Zhan Family, I, Zhan Yu Shu, swear
that there will be no place for you in the Misty Illusory Manor from
“Even if you have the Free and Natural Physique, the conclusion is the
same!” Zhan Yu Shu chuckled. “When that time comes, you only have two
paths. One, you will turn into a cripple or die a mysterious death,
turning into ashes in the Misty Illusory Manor! Two, you continue to go
back out to the outside world to beg for food! Regain that beggarly
identity of yours! You are not silly; you may not have seen the strength
of the Zhan Family, but you should have heard of it! How should you
choose, you think of it yourself!”
“Zhan Yu Shu! You are truly despicable!” Miao Xiao Miao was anxious!
Such a condition was just ruining Mo Jun Ye! It was putting three
shackles on Mo Jun Ye that he would never be able to get rid of!
The moment this condition was set, the moment Mo Jun Ye lost, he would
instantly become a servant of the Zhan Family!
You must not! Must not! You musn’t agree, ah!
These two brothers of the Zhan Family were truly too treacherous!
Jun Mo Xie only chuckled inwardly. This daddy isn’t afraid of you
raising requests. I only fear that you do not mention requests! As
expected, now, they’ve finally revealed their evil nature!
The Zhan Family had really schemed far and deep. Not only did they eye
the Miao Family and Miao Xiao Miao, the Garden of Immortal Potions, and
the position of the Manor Lord of the Misty Illusory Manor, now they had
their sights on all these young masters and their families, all the
poorer young masters who were competing today… And even eyeing Mo Jun
Ye, the future number one expert in the Misty Illusory Manor!
Too f*cking amazing!
As to all those requests that he was not to deal with this and that, all
these were diversionary tactics of the Zhan Family. Because a Free and
Natural Physique’s most important goal was his cultivation level!
Whatever music, chess, poetry, singing was meaningless to him. Even if he
was allowed to participate in it, he may not be interested in it!
Those were just methods for them to win the hearts of the others present
and nothing more!
The real requests were those three that he would be unable to refuse or
reject at anytime, anywhere! That was where the real piece of meat lay!
And the Zhan Family would definitely not mention these three requests
right now. It was a long term investment. When this Free and Natural
Physique had obtained a certain level of cultivation and showed his
potential as an invincible expert but did not yet stand at the peak yet,
that was the time they’d bring it up!
If they brought it up too early, they would worry that his cultivation
was not significant enough and the request may not be able to have its
desired effects. If they brought it up too late, he would be an existence
that could completely ignore the Zhan Family… When that time came, even
if there was a blood-written contract, it was useless. He could just
slaughter all of the Zhan Family. In this world where a clenched fist was
the greatest argument, such things were too common!
Only when he was not too high, but not too low, that moment was the most
suitable and easiest to control…
Jun Mo Xie put himself in the shoes of the Zhan Family and thought about
it. He couldn’t help but shiver: if it were him, the first condition
would be for this Free and Natural Physique that was a powerful existence
to kill an important figure in the Misty Illusory Manor, triggering panic
and disturbance in the Misty Illusory Manor. Then, the second thing would
be to kill the Manor Lord, and the third would be for him to pledge his
allegiance to the Zhan Family…
These three moves were all tightly linked. First, killing an important
figure that they were already displeased with would naturally be a sign
of cooperation on both sides. But because the Zhan Family had this
leverage on him, he naturally had to do the second one! If he did the
second one, there was no turning back anymore. Aside from joining the
Zhan Family, there was no place for him in the Misty Illusory Manor, so
even if Mo Jun Ye became an invincible and unrivaled existence in the
future, he could no longer fight back at the Zhan Family…
Like this, not only would the Zhan Family be able to obtain a number one
expert that had great value in the future, they could wield the whole of
the Misty Illusory Manor in their hands and continue to rule over it…
“Despicable? This is just stakes and requests in this gamble. The
choice lies in Brother Mo. Brother Mo can choose to agree or refuse. The
decision is not in my hands; how am I being despicable? It doesn’t mean
you’ll lose in a gamble, ah! Perhaps this prodigal great prodigy Mo
will win! Didn’t you hear Brother Mo call himself a legend?”
Zhan Yu Shu smiled affably. “Little Sister Miao, the methods you employ
in doing things are not important; what is important is… the result!
All the so-called despicable methods in the eyes of the people in the
world may not necessarily not be able to accomplish things that are just
and honorable! And some just and honorable methods are often just a
smokescreen for despicable methods… Only those who are involved
personally will understand the complexity of this, and no one else will
be able to guess it…”
At this moment, Zhan Qing Feng lightly coughed again, clearly hinting to
him not to tell Miao Xiao Miao too much, nor be too frank…
“Hmph! Did you think that I didn’t know what your goals were? Zhan Yu
Shu, you used such a method to deal with the Free and Natural Physique
that all the seniors of the Misty Illusory Manor think highly of.
Aren’t you afraid that the Zhan Family will face their wrath? When that
time comes, can your Zhan Family afford to bear the wrath of all these
seniors?” Miao Xiao Miao stared at Zhan Yu Shu. Her usually calm eyes
were filled with rare anger and rage!
“The Zhan Family does everything for the sake of the Misty Illusory
Manor. Even this gamble that is set up today; there is nothing outrageous
about it. This, I can swear by the Heavens… Besides, Little Sister Xiao
Miao, this contest is just like the bet between us juniors. Didn’t you
also participate in a bet like this too? Did you think that the stakes
can be smaller just because it’s a bet you partake in?” Zhan Yu Shu
Miao Xiao Miao was furious and about speak, only to see Jun Mo Xie raise
his head from deep thoughts. “Second Young Master Zhan, I understand
what you said earlier, but, but your requests… don’t seem very fair,
ah? From start to end, it only states what happens if I lose and allows
you to raise the requests! Then why don’t you tell me, if I win… what
happens? Could it be that only you are allowed to come up with requests
if you win, while I just tire myself in vain?”
“A bet must be fair, if Brother Mo is able to ultimately emerge
victorious, naturally you can raise requests.” Zhan Yu Shu replied in a
tone as if he were saying a joke. Everyone present couldn’t help but
break out in laughter.
Then Mo Jun Ye was truly too funny; when facing all these top talents in
various fields at the same time, he was actually planning to win every
single one? He really didn’t know how high the heavens were!
“Of course I must raise requests!” Jun Mo Xie said seriously. “And
I’ve already thought of the requests! Since your requests are so harsh,
then my requests mustn’t be easy, don’t you agree?”
“Oh? What requests do you have? Feel free to mention it.” Zhan Yu Shu
managed a smile, replying with great annoyance. This country bumpkin
really acts recklessly, tsk!
“Brother Mo, you must be careful; it is not the first time these two
brothers of the Zhan Family have gone back on their words.” Miao Xiao
Miao couldn’t help but just say it out loud, seeing how he was
intending to agree. She couldn’t be bothered to think if she was going
to thoroughly offend both Zhan Qing Feng and Zhan Yu Shu.
“Miao Xiao Miao!” Zhan Qing Feng who had remained silent for a long
time hollered. “What do you mean by that?!”
“Why, could it be that you’re allowed to do it, but I’m not allowed
to mention it?” Miao Xiao Miao showed no signs of backing down,
shooting a cold glare back at him!
