Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-99
Translated by Moe
TL Note: The website is….functional.
Anyways, thanks for all the kind words. I couldn’t reply to all your
comments individually. But yes, I will probably look for
editors/proofreaders in the future.
I’m just carrying the torch. I’m only translating this project
because no one else seems to be interested. I understand that the speed
of chapter releases may be too slow for some, but 2-3 chapters are better
than no chapters at all. I don’t plan on dropping the series, but I’m
not making any claims of the translating rights either. If others feel
that they can do a better job and wants to translate the series, just let
me know, and they can take over this project. In the meantime, I can only
promise to do my best.
Princess Ling Ming called out from a distance. “Uncle Ye! Ignore him.
Ye Gu Han was so angry that he very nearly went off on that devil child
right then and there. He disappeared before Jun Mo Xie’s eyes with a
“swish” sound and secretly decided in his heart. Although this
brat’s Xuan Qi is garbage and his martial arts are mediocre, his
poisonous mouth truly is first under the heavens. I better not run into
him in the future. If a day comes when he angers me to death, then I’ll
certainly set a record in the Xuan Xuan Continent as the first Sky Xuan
expert to be angered to death by a debauchee!
In that brief period, he hadn’t even fight not to mention getting
injured, yet his Qi churned, and he want to vomit blood! He has never
experienced something like this in his life. Even the backlash from when
his martial arts cultivation went astray hadn’t been this grave.
“I, your father, will be damned if I didn’t anger you to death! But I
still have to thank you for solving my problem.” Jun Mo Xie snorted and
watched Princess Ling Ming and Ye Gu Han leave while spouting smoke
through their seven orifices. After checking both ends of the empty
street, he gave a curious laugh and pushed off with his left foot,
leaping up on top of the walls with a “swish” and disappearing with
the blink of an eye.
Princess Ling Ming climbed straight onto the sedan chair. Her body was
still trembling from head to toe, her sight shrouded in darkness, her
lungs venting vehemently and her heart practically exploding out of her
The maids to her side were frightened out of their minds, continuously
patting the princess’ chest and massaging her back in an attempt to
relieve her anger. The maids took the better part of the day to calm her
down and felt as if they had just come back from waging war. This is the
first time in Princess Ling Ming’s life that she had been angered to
this extent, so much so that she had an urge to dismember Jun Mo Xie’s
body into ten thousand pieces!
“Head to the Dugu Residence!” Princess Ling Ming commanded.
Ye Gu Han’s face became black, then pale, then red, before change back
to black. It was like this person was putting on a face changing
performance, but the only regret is that there were no alternatives to
red, black, and white color. If there were a few more colors, than he
would be worthy of being a face changing grand master! The anger rising
in his body gave him the urge to destroy everything. Both eyes looked
straight ahead like an erupting volcano.
The eight Jun Family bodyguards were sweating profusely as they watched
him, their hearts filled with anxiety. How come the princess and this
person have come back but our family’s young master still has not
returned? Did our young master not shout out just now? This person
wouldn’t have beaten our young master senseless right?!
Even though Ye Gu Han’s fury was palpable and the bodyguards were aware
that this was a dangerous time to provoke him, their sense of
responsibility to protect the young master still prevailed in the end.
Finally plucking up the courage, one of the guards opened his mouth and
asked. “This distinguished lord……do you know my family’s young
“Get lost!” Both of Ye Gu Han’s eyes became blood red. His long,
gray hair rose up as if to pierce the sky. His furious bellow was
drawn-out and full of power, causing the heavens and earth to quake. The
color drained from everyone’s faces, their heart wildly beating as they
were shaken to the point of almost falling over. This was the absolute
strength of a peak Sky Xuan expert!
All the pent-up anger in his heart finally poured out like torrential
rain! If he had not vented out his anger just now, he was afraid that he
might have suffered from internal injuries!
The shout shocked the entire city!
Countless experts in the capital instantly became alert as they soared up
into the sky to hover over the capital. Everyone was curious. An expert
that can issue forth a voice this imposing is at the very least a peak
Earth Xuan expert! What could cause this expert to become so infuriated?
Everyone can tell from the fury in his voice that he wanted to burn down
heaven and earth!
By a small tavern doorway, Old Song suddenly widened his turbid old eyes
in astonishment. How come I can hear little Ye’s voice? Watching as Ye
Gu Han and Princess Ling Ming’s sedan chair leave, the Jun Family
bodyguards hurried into the alley to find it empty; not even a shadow of
their young master could be seen. The guards couldn’t help but cry out
bitterly to the heavens over their rotten fate!
The young master has not only been killed in this old and dirty alley,
but even his corpse had also been completely obliterated?!
Jun Mo Xie appeared from the hidden depths of the shadows, rushing
through the alley, his spiritual senses already spread out so as to
closely match the swift speed of the black clothed assassins. Jun Xie’s
hands ceaselessly moved and, before he had even advanced one zhang, his
face completely transformed into that of another person. He now resembles
a man in his mid-thirties, and his hair was slightly disheveled. This
ordinary appearance could be found everywhere in the capital and would be
difficult to identify this person in a crowd.
Jun Xie flew out onto the main street after several twists and turns, his
feet under him seem as though they were moving in slow motion but was
actually quite fast. After passing through a clothing store, his speed
had not slowed down in the slightest but his moon white gown had changed
into navy blue commoner garment. The owner of the shop was now
unconscious, still sporting the same ear to ear grin to welcome
The assassins ahead were obviously very cautious. After changing
directions and taking multiple detours, each and every one had already
changed their appearances to that of ordinary merchants and peddlers.
They were neither fast nor slow as they traveled eastward, talking while
walking, occasionally letting out fits of laughter as if sharing a very
enjoyable conversation. Vulgar expressions were seen on their three
faces, appearing to other people as if they were having perverse thoughts
about women, like a stereotypical patron of brothels.
This assassin group’s level is not simple. Jun Xie sighed in his heart.
It is true that in his past life, such disguises were clearly understood
by assassins. But now there are three people in this world can do it so
naturally, so it’s clear that the training is quite well-established.
What is even more impressive is that the three had concealed killing
intent such that not one bit can leak out. This place really has superior
If not for his spiritual sense being able to detect the cold yin aura
from the other party, they would almost certainly be impossible to track.
In other words, there is no one else that can use this tracking method
apart from him!
It was in this way, going around in circles as if chasing a teapot*, that
faint sounds of water were soon heard from up ahead, accompanied by the
melodious sounds of a string instrument and the voices of women singing.
After the fragrance of a woman’s cosmetic had become more and more
concentrated, the assassins’ destination became readily apparent.
[*This is a metaphor for the teapots typically being kept on rotating
trays called Lazy Susans at the center of tables in Chinese restaurants.
If you wanted to pick up the teapot while others are rotating the tray,
then you’d be “chasing” the teapot.]
Spirit Fog Lake!
Jun Mo Xie finally understood why these people had to pass through that
particular street; it was the only road that leads directly to the Spirit
Fog Lake. Any other route would inevitably lead to a long detour around
the lake! But if he wants to change his appearance, then he would rather
take this detour several more times. He will almost certainly not be
And along the way, Jun Mo Xie already changed his clothes three times and
even transformed his height and body type three times!
Tianxiang City’s Spirit Fog Lake is the heaven for all men. There are
heavenly beauties here of all shapes and sizes. As long as you can
imagine it, you will certainly find it here! Patrons could wantonly enter
one of the many pavilions or step foot on a merrily-decorated pleasure
boat. Whatever you can think of you can try. Whatever you desire you can
do. As long as you have enough money, you can do as you please without
But if you don’t have money, then…you’d better just leave. Even old
and even older escorts as fat as Tang Yuan will not spare you a look!
This world naturally has their fair share of fairytales: gifted scholars
and beautiful maidens*, escorts falling in love, vows of marriage without
parents’ approval, how love will find a way, and so on. But a
fairytale, after all, is only a fairytale!
[*ideal pair of lovers = brains and beauty]
Fairy tales always have happy endings, but unfortunately, life can be
very cruel. Many poor and vain scholars, who thought in themselves that
they were handsome and talented, had put on a distinguished intellectual
appearance to come here in an attempt to create their own fairytale
story. They had anticipated that a divine beauty would fall in love with
them at first sight, and how their charm and talent would allow them to
live on the earnings of these escorts…
Unfortunately, they had all been heartlessly thrown out in succession
after only being able to fish out a pittance of copper coins from their
pockets. Some were even thrown into the Spirit Fog Lake and were drowned
half to death. Their misfortune reminded them that fairy tales are
certainly appealing, but without enough money in their pocket, you will
just throw your life away and die in a stupid, meaningless and shameful
Think about what kind of place a local brothel is? Escorts don’t talk
about love and courtesans only talk of nonsense! And a brothel is a place
that is filled with the former! What man would visit this kind of
establishment and agree to remain chaste if his wife is not in the room?
Pretending to have pure intentions at a brothel is like giving the
escorts a certificate of achievement*. How detestable and patronizing!
[*I wasn’t really sure how to translate this. 牌坊 is a placard
that’s traditionally bestowed upon wives who have worked tirelessly
worked to upkeep their home and raise the children while their husbands
are away at work. Giving an escort such an award is like a slap in the
For the women who been accustomed to seeing the very worst in people, how
could they not see through the half-assed scholarly and cultured
pretenses for what it really is?
There are very few good men like in the fairytales!
No wonder Tang Yuan once said that bastards were cleanly killed with one
sword stroke, but hypocrites were continuously tormented and tortured
until they collapsed from a mental breakdown.
He always kept these words close to heart!
Jun Mo Xie concealed himself among the shadows, sticking to the walls and
hiding behind trees. His body seem as though it possessed an almost
intangible and elusive quality and was able to become one with anything
he used as cover. Not one passerby along the way noticed his presence,
not to mention the three assassins he is following.
But looking at the three men in front, ** dominated their thoughts, but
they kept up a perfect gentleman’s appearance. These nouveau riche
entered a luxurious building in the outer reaches of Spirit Fog Lake—Ni
After the party went in, a nearby pleasure boat begins to slowly row over
before coming to a stop in the waters near the Ni Chang Pavilion.
Jun Mo Xie was stunned by what he saw. Apart from the helmsman outside,
there was surprisingly no one else on the boat. It seemed as if it’s
just waiting for him. This situation seemed a little odd. What’s more,
the people that have since gone onboard have stayed on the other side of
the boat? Isn’t this too good to be true? Jun Mo Xie gritted his teeth.
Let’s take a gamble!
A sudden gust of wind rose up. Amidst a clump of reed, a piece of reed
broke loose before gently drifting away on the surface of the lake. A
hint of dream-like quality accompanied the arrival of the setting sun,
forming an uncanny scenery.
Jun Mo Xie planned to exploit these drifting reeds. His entire body seems
to merge effortlessly into the clumps of reeds by the side of the lake
and soon came within a dozen zhangs of the boat. Hidden behind a thick
willow on shore, he broke off two pieces of reeds to hold in his hands
and slipped soundlessly into the water. His movement in the water was as
light as a feather such that he did not arouse even the slightest
ripples. Actually, he had only recently achieved this level of movement
after vigorously training. If it were a fortnight before, he would not
have been able to move in this way.
