Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-969
Right now, Qi Wan Jie was not only incapable of playing against Jun Mo
Xie. Against any chess player in the Misty Illusory Manor, Qi Wan Jie
would still be doomed to lose!
He lowered his head, looking at the chess pieces that were placed wrongly
on the chessboard. In a moment, he felt hope turn into dust! He pushed
the chessboard away, lowering his head even more. In a tone as if he were
choking back his tears, he said, “I… admit defeat…”
This sentence left everyone utterly shocked!
From the start of the game, they’d watched Jun Mo Xie corner Qi Wan
Jie. Qi Wan Jie had always been coping with his attacks, with no ability
to counterattack back! Until now, the game was halfway through, both
parties had already unleashed their ultimate moves!
With this, there could only be one winner now!
Life and death, victory or success would be determined soon!
But Qi Wan Jie surrendered at a moment like this!
Carefully looking at the situation on the chessboard, the black pieces
had indeed occupied a significant advantage and dominated all the attacks
while the white pieces had been on the defense. Its foundations were
significant and had a small chance of obtaining victory, but if he
continued to fend, there was still room for him to wait till an
opportunity to counterattack. It was not entirely impossible for him to
turn things around…
But at a time like this, Qi Wan Jie had already calculated all the moves
needed till the end of the game?
So he requested to surrender in advance?

Qi Wan Jie looked up in a daze, his eyes lifeless. He said, “I am
indeed not his match. This match shouldn’t have started in the first
place because I had already lost right before it started! Playing chess
with the intention of gaining benefits… is the taboo of all chess
players! How could my game be stable when my mental state is not? Brother
Mo is truly highly-skilled; I willingly admit my defeat! I am sincerely
convinced to concede!”
Jun Mo Xie lightly heaved a sigh of relief. This victory in this round
was really not easy. The mental strain was greater than a huge battle.
However, everything was within his expectations.
From the moment Jun Mo Xie began to tell the story, Qi Wan Jie did not
interrupt him. From that moment, the outcome was already decided! But he
still continued to struggle and made it to midpoint with his solid
foundation and tenacious battle strategies!
Jun Mo Xie intentionally mentioned the first line of the couplet, but
admitted that he was unable to come up with the second line. This was the
real emotional devil he had planted in Qi Wan Jie’s heart!
From the moment Qi Wan Jie appeared, Jun Mo Xie had clearly determined
his personality and came up with a suitable method to deal with him!
This person was greedy for fame! And a hypocrite! With a personality like
this, he cared greatly about gains and losses!
Qi Wan Jie was indeed a talent and stood at the peak with his chess
skills, enjoying success as a youth. Naturally, it was inevitable for him
to be arrogant and haughty. This was a normal ailment of youths,
completely understandable. But it had also created his current
personality of viewing himself highly.
In this world, if there was one person who Qi Wan Jie genuinely admired,
then there was only Chess Saint Hua Wu Cuo!
Other people, even if it was the Nine Nether First Young Master, would
not necessarily move him!
Because Qi Wan Jie didn’t dabble in Xuan cultivation…

So although Jun Mo Xie only knew the name of a Chess Saint, he still came
up with an exciting story with it, using the reputation of Hua Wu Cuo’s
art of chess to suppress this young chess champion of the Misty Illusory
This was only the first step of the plan. The moment Qi Wan Jie’s
arrogance was successfully oppressed, Jun Mo Xie let him realize the
disparity between him and the Chess Saint. He also made use of the
opportunity to mention that he had once played against the Chess Saint,
and that his skills were on the same level… naturally, dealing another
blow to his confidence!
Afterwards, bringing up that couplet at suitable timing, suddenly opening
the game when Qi Wan Jie was wholeheartedly focused on how to match the
next line of the couplet!
At that time, Qi Wan Jie was already sitting opposite the chessboard. It
didn’t look sudden in the eyes of outsiders; but to Qi Wan Jie himself,
it was completely unexpected. His mind had already wandered off
elsewhere, but he was suddenly called back…
Then, he was tossed into an intense match and had to deal with bizarre
moves that he had never seen before…
With a mental state like this, how could he not lose? When the match was
at its most intense point, where Qi Wan Jie’s mental state was like a
taut bowstring, on the verge of firing, Jun Mo Xie suddenly brought up
the couplet again.
Although he was muttering to himself, Qi Wan Jie was extremely bothered
about this… Thus, that casual lament turned into the straw that broke
Qi Wan Jie completely, crushing him!
From the moment they met, Jun Mo Xie had been setting traps step by step,
slowly making Qi Wan Jie walk right into them, until he fell into a state
Jun Mo Xie’s chess skills were definitely not as good at Qi Wan Jie,
but Young Master Jun’s skills and knowledge of the game had a
significant impact. Because in the whole process of officially playing
against each other, Qi Wan Jie would be skeptical that Jun Mo Xie was
capable of almost winning Chess Saint Hua Wu Cuo even if Young Master Jun
used methods from five thousand years in the future! Coupled with his
layers of set-ups, no one would be able to resist it!
Even if Qi Wan Jie was lucky enough to resist against this emotional
devil, Jun Mo Xie still had a triumph card…

Young Master Jun’s unique psychological manipulation was capable of
controlling people with no mental training like Qi Wan Jie to do whatever
he wanted… With not the tiniest bit of resistance! Although this method
left traces and could be easily discovered by Xuan experts present, there
was no problem in obtaining victory with it!
The second round, Mo Jun Ye’s victory!
After Miao Xiao Miao solemnly announced this outcome, everyone fell into
a state of silence. The first and second rounds were what the Zhan Family
had the most confidence in winning. But under the prowess of the enemy,
they had lost both.
What else should they compete in next?
Some people who wanted to contest in poetry immediately retreated after
hearing Jun Mo Xie unintentionally recited that ‘Untitled’ and ‘It
was hard to meet you and then bid farewell’! Which one of them was
confident enough to come up with such rapturous quatrains that nibble
away at the bones?
If they had stepped out to compete, and Jun Mo Xie simply said: You just
have to come up with one that is similar to the one I just recited, then
it’ll count as your victory… That’d really be embarrassing. Not
only were they asking for humiliation, they’d really be unable to show
Miao Xiao Miao looked at Jun Mo Xie happily. Right now, she didn’t
worry as much as she had before. She only felt that this Free and Natural
Physique really matched her tastes. Recalling that line of ‘Life is
Long in Sadness as Water Keeps Flowing East’, and that ‘It was hard
to meet you and then bid farewell’… and that ‘Burial of Flowers’
and its unaffected yet deep helpless love…
Miao Xiao Miao’s heart was wavering, and to her surprise, she
couldn’t control herself…
At this moment, no one had noticed that the young chess champion had
already snuck away from his seat, as if that young chess champion who
shocked the world with his chess ability was no longer worth mentioning
Seeing that the third match had yet to begin, but it was already in a
stage of awkward silence, Zhan Qing Feng and Zhan Yu Shu exchanged
glances, feeling extremely anxious.

Both brothers felt that if the two of them were to compete with him,
they’d feel afraid. This fellow was too sick in the head!
As if there was nothing he was not proficient in—what sort of person is
this? Talk about you having the Free and Natural Physique that is rarely
seen in all of history, why didn’t you treasure it and cultivate Xuan
skills properly! Putting so much effort on all these useless external
learning, aside from being excellent at music and chess, even half a poem
of yours is enough to scare everyone off from stepping out to compete
with you! Are you even still human, ah?!…
Looking at the people packing up the chess equipment, a light bulb went
off in Zhan Yu Shu’s head. He let out a long sigh and said, “The
Chess Saint of Xuan Xuan Continent, Hua Wu Cuo. Legends have it that this
person has never miscalculated any of his matches! And everything he does
is extremely orderly and full of utmost self-discipline! Amongst those
with famous reputations, it is really rare to find one that is like this.
Today, upon hearing Brother Mo’s recount, I am really full of
admiration to this Chess Saint… Hua Wu Cuo, truly as expected of Hua Wu
Cuo, truly worthy of the Chess Saint ah…”
This fellow began to embark on his own soliloquy with exaggerated
emotions like women in her private room.
Jun Mo Xie didn’t bother to respond to it. Because he knew that Zhan Yu
Shu was waiting for him to respond and match his tune. But why would
Young Master Jun be willing to give him this opportunity! I just want to
watch you go on your mono-drama, watch what you are trying to do…
“Indeed ah, the Chess Saint’s reputation is well known in the world,
as expected of an expert of his generation ah.” Since no one responded,
Zhan Yu Shu was instantly put in a spot. Not knowing what his younger
brother was up to and left without a better choice, Zhan Qing Feng could
only force himself to stand up and embark on this double at with his
“Indeed, I had originally wanted to compete against Brother in
literature. I had even thought of the topic. But now, younger brother, I
have changed my mind.” Zhan Yu Shu said with a smile, facing Zhan Qing
No one bothered about him, so these two brothers could only continue with
their act. Although both of them were adorning warm and genial smiles,
they were feeling extremely awkward internally… as if the two of them
were monkeys performing on stage…
“Oh? Yu Shu, what did you change your mind about?” After a while, no
one asked, so Zhan Qing Feng could only continued to do it himself. He
had already cursed all those followers and all eighteen generations of
their ancestors internally. Why are these servants so incompetent at
noticing signs?! I’ll break all their legs when we return immediately
and toss all of them out!
“Yes, since we’ve just heard Chess Saint Wu Cuo’s poems, if we
still insist on competing about some poetry, isn’t it too cliche? Then
I remembered the story Brother Mo had just shared and I thought of a
marvellous idea.” Zhan Yu Shu said shamelessly with a wide smile.

“Oh? Could there be such a thing? Hurry up and tell, Yu Shu; what is
this marvelous idea you have?” Seeing that no one was supporting their
act, Zhan Qing Feng just got into the role. F*ck it, I’ll just be thick
skinned. Who dares to comment about me!
What these two brothers did not know was that it was not that their
underlings who did not know how to notice signs and not that they did not
wish to speak. But it was Young Master Jun who wanted to see these two
brothers acted, so he controlled all of them using his psychological
Right now, it was not because they did not want to talk, it was difficult
for them to even breathe. But everyone couldn’t understand. Why is it
that I cannot speak?
Right now, even a single line of ‘Indeed ah’ would instantly gain
them the favor of the Zhan Brothers ah… But they just couldn’t open
their mouths, it’s really bewildering ah…
