Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-994
The Scarlet Jade Ginseng was a mutant variant ginseng. They were
exceedingly rare, and would typically need over a hundred years of
careful nurturing to reach full maturity. Before they reached full
maturity, they cannot be consumed. But because it needed so much time to
reach full maturity, they were excellent spirit herbs when matured. After
Cao Guo Feng moved it to his own yard, he’d only taken it as a
leisurely activity to tend to it every so often. After all with the long
life of Saint Emperors, he would be able to enjoy the ginseng sooner or
But still, he didn’t place too much importance on it for the time
being. After all, it was only around ten years old right now. There were
still at least 70, 80 years remaining until it would be worth something…
But who would have thought that this ginseng would actually directly step
past over 80 years of growing, directly reaching full maturity in the
mere blink of an eye?
When they saw this, the five of them directly froze like stone statues…
“Quick quick… dig it out and take a look! Is it really mature?” The
Third Elder said agitatedly as his eyes shone. The Scarlet Jade Ginseng
could not really be considered any amazing treasure in the eyes of these
Saint Emperors. But a fully matured Scarlet Jade Ginseng was still rather
rare. If it was really mature, it would be a nice freebie.
The Seventh Elder stooped down and carefully dug through the ground. Even
as a Saint Emperor expert, he was still exceedingly careful. The Scarlet
Jade Ginseng was rather unique in that as long as even a single root was
hurt when digging, all the Spiritual Qi in it would completely
This was also the reason why the Scarlet Jade Ginseng was viewed so
preciously despite its growth conditions…
A while later, the Scarlet Jade Ginseng was finally dug up completely. An
additional deep hole was left on the ground.
After carefully dusting off the dirt around it, a red glow could be seen,
with a near translucent ginseng. All five Saint Emperors were promptly
This… it was actually real!
This was a Scarlet Jade Ginseng that could not be more ripe!
Furthermore, this was definitely the highest grade of Scarlet Jade
Overjoyed with this discovery, the five brothers immediately spread out
and started digging…
“Wahaha, look at this stalk of Green Jing, it’s actually also reached
“The Violet Zoysia here is actually also fully grown…”
The five old man suddenly turned into common foragers as they searched
through this treasure ground excitedly…
How big could a mere courtyard be? Saint Emperor Cao himself was not a
herb expert, and there was only a limited number of spirit herbs planted.
The five quickly concluded their search in a short time. Looking at the
desolate scene before them, the five Saint Emperors clucked their tongues
with some pity. They were naturally not feeling regretful about the mess
they’ve created. With their status, even if they trashed another
hundred courtyards, they would still not feel anything. In at most one
day, the courtyard could be easily restored to its former beauty.
The thing they were truly regretful over was—”if we knew it was like
this, we should have planted this courtyard full of spirit herbs… A
miracle like this would only happen once in how long ah… To think that
such a miraculous anomaly only ended up mainly nourishing those useless
weeds and bamboos. What a waste, it was simply a waste of heavenly
The five all sighed as they looked at the sea of bamboo before them with
hatred. In this moment, they only wished to chop these annoying plants
down and boil them into soup…
A perfectly fine courtyard had actually turned into a bamboo forest! Even
the clean and quiet little houses were all covered with weeds now, and
some bamboo had even grown through the ground, breaking past the stone
They had checked very carefully; apart from this yard, there was no
anomaly with the plants outside of this yard. From the looks of it, this
‘miracle’ had only happened to this yard…
“So it’s the Heavens giving us more care ah…” the Seventh Elder
said with a deep sigh. As he rubbed his buttocks, he did not feel that
bad anymore. After all, who else in this world could say that their
chrysanthemum had been busted by divine providence? This old man could be
said to be the first in the world! This event could even be written into
the annals of history!
When he thought of it this way, the Seventh Elder felt that his butt had
As dawn approached, Cao Guo Feng and Bai Qi Feng finally returned
lethargically. The moment they stepped through the door, the both of them
froze slightly and instantly turned back around… they should have
entered the wrong door…
Bai Qi Feng grumbled softly. “Boss, you called me a muddlehead all day
long, but look at you, you can’t even find your own house…”
The two stepped back and looked for a long time. Finally, they turned and
walked back through the gate in a confused manner. They looked at the
entire yard full of tall grass and verdant bamboos, as well as the thick
layer of vines creeping along the walls…
Cao Guo Feng was so shocked that he couldn’t say anything.
The yard was also filled with huge holes all over the ground… As for
the room that Jun Mo Xie had been staying in, it had already been turned
into a breezy open pavilion. Saint Emperor Cao blinked his eyes in
disbelief, and he felt like a strangled goose with its throat tightly
gripped in someone’s fist. After stammering and choking for a long
time, he finally roared, “This… what happened here?”
The scene before him would be shocking to anyone! It was a good thing
that he’d noticed the plants first. If he saw the large holes and the
destroyed house first, Saint Emperor Cao would definitely think that
something had happened to Young Master Jun!
The moment they heard the two come back, the other five Saint Emperors
hurriedly ran out from their rooms. The five of them all spoke together,
describing all kinds of wondrous magic, causing Cao Guo Feng and Bai Qi
Feng to nearly faint from the confusion…
After a long time, the two of them finally figured out the situation from
their jumbled words, realizing that a ‘miracle’ had happened in this
yard last night!
“I’m not in the mood to care about whatever magic and miracles…
Where is that kid? How is he? Has he calmed down yet?” Bai Qi Feng was
obviously not interested in the miracle at all. He only cared about the
treasured disciple that they’d snatched back after such great danger.
With the assassination attempt just a few hours ago, his mood was
naturally not good.
“Er… he’s fine.” The five hurriedly answered.
Only when they heard that he was fine, the two of them finally relaxed.
Now, they could look at the messy scene before them and the precious
herbs in the five brothers’ hands. There were actually over a dozen of
them, and each one could be considered precious natural treasures…
“I say, boss, this matter seems quite queer to me…” Bai Qi Feng
stroked his chin and revealed a deep ponderous expression. “That
miracle didn’t come earlier or later, only arriving after Jun Ye came
here… Perhaps… this disciple of ours is someone sent from the
“What do you mean?” Everyone asked together.
“It’s extraordinary ‘eh’…” Bai Qi Feng said, raising his head
arrogantly. This was a slang that he’d learnt from Jun Mo Xie a couple
days ago. To think he could apply it so quickly, it was indeed
Everyone also nodded with realization. Although Bai Qi Feng’s words
sounded rather uncouth, this was an undeniable fact. Cao Guo Feng had
already stayed in this yard for several hundred years. But not to mention
a miracle, not even the slightest strange matter had happened before…
But today’s matter was obviously not something that could be explained
away with logic…
In that instant, the seven Saint Emperors had become more sure that this
Free and Natural Physique prodigy Mo Jun Ye was definitely going to be a
huge figure in the future!
Throughout history and legends, every time an important figure was born,
strange sights and anomalies would always accompany them!
From the looks of it, this was a reminder from the heavens ah…
Or perhaps, it’s a warning from the gods, that nothing must be allowed
to happen to this child!
In just an instant, the look in everyone’s eyes changed…
The entire Misty Illusory Manor was thoroughly stirred up the previous
The prodigy with the Free and Natural Physique, had met with an
assassination attempt at the mountain right in front of the Manor, barely
And the assassins were actually the six personal guards of the Zhan
Family Young Masters who had only a few hours ago, been defeated
miserably by Mo Jun Ye!
This matter naturally attracted the attention of all the important
The second matter also involved the same Mo Jun Ye with the Free and
Natural Physique. On the same night that he’d escaped the assassination
attempt, a shocking miracle had appeared in the yard he was staying at!
In the span of a single night, all the plants in the yard suddenly all
grew madly, reaching full maturity of several hundred years!
These two matters sent a huge tremor through the entire Misty Illusory
At the crack of dawn, Manor Lord Miao Jing Yun sent an order, summoning
the Patriarchs of all the eight great families to the Manor! At the same
time, among the list of invited people, was Saint Emperor Cao Guo Feng!
“This time, the Zhan Family will definitely not be able to get away
lightly. This daddy has disliked those bunch of Zhan Family bastards for
a long time already!” Bai Qi Feng said with a slight sneer as he sat in
Cao Guo Feng’s little yard. His expression was casual and at ease, as
if he were in his own house. In fact, he’d even pulled his mattress and
blankets over, seemingly intending to perch a nest here and settle down…
Saint Emperor Bai’s speech was much more restrained this time. His
trademark “this daddy” was practically gone. After all, his precious
disciple was beside him. If he ended up leading him astray, it wouldn’t
Truthfully, this was also one of Cao Guo Feng’s conditions for letting
him stay here. If he refused to conform, he could only scram.
In order to be able to stay close with his precious disciple, he could
A stone table was set in the middle of the yard, which they sat around. A
bowl of spirit fruits only produced in the Misty Illusory Manor was
placed in the middle. Six of the Saint Emperors together with Jun Mo Xie
was seated around it, happily eating their breakfast.
The scene was calm, and the sound of bamboo and leaves swaying lightly in
the breeze could be heard…
“Not necessarily so!” Jun Mo Xie said with a faint smile. “Although
the assassins from last night have been determined to be from the Zhan
Family, it remains a fact that none of the Zhan Family disciples were
present! And with just that ‘not present’ point, the Zhan Family can
do many things. With their foundations, they probably won’t suffer any
real loss. At the most, they would only get some light punishment and
with the promise to be more strict with their watch over their servants.
And this matter would be over…”
“Oh? Really?” Bai Qi Feng looked at Young Master Jun with an
interested gaze. “Kid, you’ve hidden yourself quite well… In that
case, the only way to pin the crime on the Zhan Family for last night’s
matter is if we caught Zhan Qing Feng and Zhan Yu Shu red-handed at the
scene of the crime?”
“Even like that, it might not work!” Jun Mo Xie said faintly. “As
long as the Zhan Family acted quickly enough on their side, announcing
that this matter was the personal actions of those two unfilial juniors
and promptly expelled them from the family, or even executed the two of
them on the spot, the Zhan Family would still not have their core harmed
at all. Wishing to topple the Zhan Family just with this matter alone is
basically impossible! After all, the Zhan Family is the current number
one family of the Misty Illusory Manor. Their foundations are
incomparably deep and sturdy to shocking extent! It’s truly difficult
to want to shake them!”
