Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-972
“As to Qi Wan Jie, it’s even more simple. Qi Wan Jie is drunk for
fame and profit. Although he already has the position of Chess Champion,
he is still unsatisfied. I promised him the position of the Chess
Superintendent of the Chess Institution of the Misty Illusory Manor, with
four great beauties as his consorts and ten thousand taels of gold! And
promise to deliver Young Lady Lee, whom he is in love, to his residence
and make her his wife… And so he came, and he had to promise to defeat
Mo Jun Ye in one hit…” Zhan Yu Shu spilled everything at one go.
Amidst the crowd, Qi Wan Jie’s face with deathly pale. His lips were
trembling. Qi Wan Jie knew from the disdainful scorns coming from around
him that his fate had completely changed with Zhan Yu Shu’s words!
It was all over for him!
All his numerous efforts and the boundless glory of the past had nothing
to do with him right now. They had all became a thing of the past, a part
of history! The entire world suddenly turned pitch black! Qi Wan Jie’s
face turned white and he spat a mouthful of fresh blood and fainted.
No one bothered with the Chess Champion Qi Wan Jie, who was destined to
pass his prime. They were all shocked by what Zhan Yu Shu was saying!
Just as Jun Mo Xie had predicted, Zhan Qing Feng carried all the
responsibility upon his own shoulders, freeing Zhan Qing Feng from the
mess. This courage and insight alone was impressive. When in his simple
recounting alone, it made everyone felt that everything were acts of his
own accord and had absolutely nothing to do with his family!
And to be able to do it in a situation like this, it was undoubtedly not
easy. Truly impressive!
Zhan Qing Feng on the other side wore a stiff expression, watching his
own younger brother. Who knew how Zhan Qing Feng felt!
Suddenly, Zhan Qing Feng rushed forward and slapped Zhan Yu Shu across
his face harshly. He yelled, “You beast! To think that you did
something this despicable! How could you do things like this? The Zhan
Family’s reputation of thousands is tarnished by you just like this! Do
you have any idea what you are doing? How could you do something this
Fresh blood appeared on the corner of Zhan Yu Shu’s lips along with
this slap! He fell onto the ground from the impact of this unexpected and

Zhan Qing Feng continued to chide, full of anguish and rage, the green
veins on his forehead even popping! After a long time, he finally let out
a long sigh and said, “Family misfortune! It is really our family’s
misfortune ah… Zhan Qing Feng, you have disgraced the Zhan Family, and
tarnished the reputation of the Zhan Family. I swear I will not let you
off like this. Although I do not have the authority to punish you, it
doesn’t mean that you are able to escape the punishments of the family!
When we return home, I want to see how you face Father and our ancestors!
The Zhan Family’s family law will absolutely not allow nor tolerate any
descendant that disgraces the Zhan Family!”
Miao Xiao Miao coldly watched all of this unfold, seeing how the younger
brother stood out to carry all the blame and the older brother stepped
out to reprimand the younger brother. She suddenly felt like this great
show happening was truly amusing. From the initial shock to the amusement
right now, she did not even noticed this subtle change in her mood.
A method like this wouldn’t even fool the average person, so what more
all these intelligent and wise people present right now? Even if no one
pointed it out, everyone could understand what it implicated! Did you
really think that everyone else in the world is a fool and only the two
of you are clever?!
Without his reputation of the Young Master of the Zhan Family, if not for
the full support of the Zhan Family, Zhan Yu Shu was only a twenty year
old youth. Even with his strength alone, he wasn’t capable of becoming
a threat to an influential family. And he would not be able to promise Qi
Wan Jie so many benefits! All these were beyond the boundaries of Zhan Yu
Although with such an obvious fact, the two brothers of the Zhan Family
still continued to put on this great show. Because it was one matter for
everyone to know, and another for the position of the Zhan Family to be
degraded like this. It didn’t matter whether anyone believed Zhan Qing
Feng’s current devoted and fair act. This stance had to be shown!
Because even if no one believed the claims Zhan Yu Shu was spouting and
they may not expose the truth, there would be some people who denied
their conscience and agreed to what he was saying. Second Young Master
Zhan was acting on his own and his nothing to do with the Zhan Family…
Miao Xiao Miao was currently thinking. The Zhan Family truly plans far
ahead. Just Zhan Yu Shu alone is capable of mobilizing such resources and
is willing to protect the Zhan Family regardless of the price… This
sort of temperament and resolution… is no small matter! By contrast,
how many of such people like this are there in the Miao Family?
The Zhan Family was capable of bribing Qi Wan Jie and threatening Lin
Qing Yin… Then who else would they threaten or bribe? With their
unscrupulous methods in obtaining what they desire, if…
I may not be able to decipher this information on my own, what more
comprehend it, but I must report this in detail to Grandfather when I
return home. I believe that with their experience, they’ll be able to
tell and even… further analyze the potential danger within it…
The third round of battle was once again the Great Prodigy Mo’s
victory. And he crippled the person who had started this operation, the
second young master Zhan Yu Shu, along with it!
This outcome had resulted in all the other contestants who had originally
wanted to try their hand to keep quiet out of fear.
Right now, everyone could tell. This Mo Jun Ye with the Free and Natural
Physique was not only a solid prodigy, but a ruthless person and not one
to be messed with! He looked like a joke with his first appearance,
acting like a country bumpkin, but every single line of his instantly
caught the vital points of his enemy! The moment he caught it,
congratulations, someone was doomed!
And it seemed that he had one more unique trait, and that was that he was
extremely petty. Whoever who attacked him would be attacked back! And the
incisive way he struck back was enough to make people’s hair stand up
From the beginning, he had never initiated provocation. But he had been
brewing in his counterattacks! After thoroughly digesting an attack, he
would use his most incisive attack!
Hitting in a single strike!
And it was an absolute hit! Every single strike took a person out!
Even the two brothers of the Zhan Family were no exception!
What sort of massive confidence and thick foundation were required to be
capable of this? Even just these alone was not enough. It still required
extremely sharp observational skills, extremely precise control, and
sensitivity that cut…
Not a single one of these must be lacking!
Someone like this was expected of the legendary Free and Natural Physique!
Facing a lunatic like this, what else should they compete in?
There was no one else who dared to come forward anymore!
Not only were the judges trying to figure out the answer to this
question, Zhan Qing Feng wasn’t sure of what decision he should make.
Right from the beginning, everyone had assumed that the Free and Natural
Physique was something in legends, and that it was merely a mystical
physique for Xuan Cultivation. Perhaps his speed for Xuan Qi cultivation
would be relatively sick, but there was no way he could be perfect in
other aspects… How could anyone be perfect…
And it was impossible for one to know anything and everything!
But right now, the fact laid before their eyes. It had also given all of
them a lesson and made them acknowledge an abnormally frightening fact!
They had indeed met with a freak, a freak whose strength was a profound
Mo Jun Ye, as the owner of the Free and Natural Physique, had an ordinary
Xuan cultivation. But he just had to be this well-versed and proficient
in all sorts of other random knowledge…
When it came to Xuan cultivators, they’d only pick up skills of the
four arts at most. But this fellow on the other hand was a great talent
in music, a national expert in the art of chess, with poetry skills above
all those present, and an ability to think fast in an emergency!
A whole bunch of people were using crafty plots and machinations to deal
with him, but he had used the same method to deal with the rest of them!
Zhan Yu Shu sat on a seat in the corner, as if he were awaiting his
punishment. His cheek swollen. But he was extremely concerned with the
victory in this next round! He appeared to look gloomy, with his face
hanging low, but he secretly transmitted his voice to his older brother.
“This person is really not ordinary like the seniors said. This person
is clever and quick-witted. And well versed in all these random skills.
If we were to raise another orthodox means of competition, we might just
fall into his trap again. The best option we have now is to try to go for
an unconventional gambit!”
“Unconventional gambit?” Zhan Qing Feng mumbled to himself. Suddenly,
his eyes gleamed.
“This person was born into poverty; he may not have interacted with any
rich or wealthy families! Someone like this may be talented in skills,
but he definitely does not have a single debauchee bone in him!” Zhan
Qing Feng’s gaze remained fixed on the ground, but the voice that was
transmitted into Zhan Qing Feng’s ears was extremely sinister. “Since
we have no confidence in winning him in regular competitions, let’s try
something he is not familiar with.”
“For example?…” Zhan Qing Feng’s eyes turned brighter.
“For example, something that debauchees often play… With his level,
he definitely hasn’t touched it before! Things that debauchees play
with is either dog and cock fighting or brothels…” Zhan Yu Shu
scoffed. “In other words… maybe gambling or visiting a prostitute…
“Gambling, visiting a prostitute, or fighting?” Zhan Qing Feng
suddenly felt extremely pleased.
“Playing with prostitutes… naturally we can’t bring it out in an
occasion like this to compete… But there should be no big deal with
gambling with money, and, whatever cock, dog, snake, cricket, Xuan Beast
fighting… they can all be used! And there is no chance of us losing! We
don’t have his talent and skills, but I doubt our luck is worse than
his? Don’t tell me he can be lucky for his entire life?” Zhan Yu Shu
“We had set on seven rounds: the four arts, poetry, wine and tea, and
we have already lost the first three. As to the poetry round, we already
know the result without having to go through with it. And calligraphy,
that’ll also be unnecessary… He is able to have such strong
foundations, so he’ll definitely be an expert at calligraphy as well.
If that’s the case… that leaves us with wine and painting? And
another round of gambling?” Zhan Qing Feng asked, a little confused.
“No! There is completely no need to compete in painting and wine! With
his proficiency in music and poetry, he is definitely no stranger to
painting… As long as he reads enough, his awareness of wine will also
not be weak… Why don’t we just abort them and search for other
methods we are more confident in!”
Zhan Yu Shu said. “Let’s just use two rounds to determine who the
victor is! Gambling on money and Xuan Beast fighting!”
