Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
Jun Mo Xie was shocked. In fact, he was dripping with sweat. [Solitary Falcon is too fearless! I hadnt anticipated that this man would be capable of something like this!]
[Tian Fa can even track a rats movements within its territory in this time of war. So, how can a team infiltrate with utmost stealth?]
[Lets suppose we do adopt Solitary Falcons plan, and a team infiltrates Tian Fa in secrecy. They would certainly be surrounded by the enemy forces And then, the enemy will use their superior strength to annihilate that team in its entirety! This outcome is an absolute given.]
[To die is to die but this team would basically be killing themselves if we take this course of action]
Jun Mo Xie had come to realize that he had been too conservative in estimating Solitary Falcons IQ; he had overestimated it by too great a margin. It seemed that this mans head had become like a gourd after training every day with the Snowy Mountain Eagles. So, his intelligence had come to resemble that of the eagles by now
"There has been no gain today" Jun Wu Yi sighed, "Tian Fa has declared war. It has given us a preparation time of three days before it initiates a full-scale decisive battle. And, were still considering the commander-in-chief"
"Speaking of the candidates for commander-in-chief your Third Uncle is quite popular." Dongfang Wen Qing snorted coldly. He then continued in an angry manner, "The Silver Blizzard City immediately recommended him. They then vigorously praised the abilities of the Blood General. Then, the Xue Hun Manors Young Master Li Teng Yun also got up and recommended him It was almost decided on the spot! Those shameless bastards! Theyre trying to kill with a borrowed knife! They want to use your Third Uncles popularity to endanger his life!"
Jun Mo Xie rolled his eyes, "What are your thoughts about this topic Third Uncle?"
Jun Wu Yi raised his eyebrows, "Weve come here to settle this matter. So, how does it matter if these people aim to kill with a borrowed knife? This Xuan Beast Uprising is a threat to the entire mainland. So, it must be contained and stopped. Moreover, the upcoming decisive battle is key to all of it! Great men dont do things out of convenience! Someone else will take my place if I dont step-up! Moreover, its not inevitable that Ill die if take-up this post"
"Huh? You mean you accepted it?" Jun Mo Xie stood up, and asked cautiously after he had taken two steps.
"I sure did." Jun Wu Yi replied calmly, "Only I couldve been nominated; theres no one else. And, the prestige of the Jun Family wouldve been hit hard if I were to fear for my life in such a situation and turn the offer to lead this war down. In fact, our familys prestige wouldve dropped to a freezing point! All the glory and honor of the past which your grandfather, father, Second Uncle and your two elder brothers earned for the Jun Family wouldve been washed away. And, I wouldve ruined it if I were to covet my life and fear death like this! Therefore I am duty bound to not retreat even if I may die! A great man earns his name for a reason!"
"They called your name since they were aware that you wouldnt say no; there was no other reason except this one alone. They were well-aware that you wont back down!" Dongfang Wen Qing groaned, "You know that its nothing but a trap. And yet, youre still ready to jump into it? Is this what you call a great man? This is nothing but a fools behavior!"
"Then, I will die without regrets!" Jun Wu Yis expression was cold, "The Jun Familys reputation is everything as far as Im concerned! I dont matter in front of it! And, I will never allow our familys reputation to fall!"
"Idiot!" Dingfang Wen Qing scolded sharply, "You going to war is just a meaningless sacrifice on your part; nothing more!"
"Real men have to shoulder their responsibilities. And, the Jun Familys reputation is my responsibility!"
Jun Wu Yi frowned. But, he had a determined expression on his face, "The Jun Family will never fall. Father and Mo Xie will still be there even if Im gone. So, the Jun Family will never fall! And now, I will step forward for my family as a Jun. Anyway, Im not doing this because I wish to fall into the trap or to come across as a hero This is only for my Jun Familys prestige! The Jun Family will never fear the enemy or act cowardly!"
Dongfang Wen Qing trembled angrily from head to toe. He stamped his foot and cursed, "Ive never seen anyone so brain-dead in my entire life! You say something Mo Xie!"
"I havent crowned my hair in ten years. And, every night I look at the moon and hope to come to Tian Xiang but I know that the life doesnt go in reverse!" Jun Mo Xie chanted loudly. He suddenly raised his head, and spoke in a sinking voice, "Youll do it in spite of this, Third Uncle? This matter of prestige is alien to me I dont care about it! And, Im sure that even grandfather is the same! Your life is more important for us! Also, dont forget that theres someone who awaits you on that snowy mountain. She has already waited for ten years because of her feelings. And, shell continue to wait"
Jun Wu Yis body started to tremble violently, and his face convulsed with pain. His expression became dark in a split second. Then, he tilted his head, and his cheek vanished in the darkness left by the flickering candle. The man then spoke-up in agony, "Its not about prestige alone. The battlefield has taken millions of corpses since ancient times. Which one of them didnt have aged parents? Who didnt have a lovely young wife? Am I Jun Wu Yi special? Am I treasured gold? Isnt this enough of a reason?"
"Ive made my decision. Elder Brothers, the three of you need not urge Mo Xie. Anyway, Im convinced that my being the commander-in-chief will have a huge effect. I can at least do better than those good-for-nothing stubborn people," Jun Wu Yi smiled strenuously.
"Its okay if youre going to fight. But, is it necessary that its just you alone? Cant others go to fight as well?"
Jun Mo Xie rolled his eyes, "How can you lead the ordinary troops and clash with this enemy head-on? It would be considered suicide if you were only to lead ordinary troops. But, many of the powerful families have sent their people to Tian Fa. And, you will need several thousand elite troops for this battle. Moreover, several of them would need to be at Earth Xuan level, and thousands will need to be at Jade Xuan if you wish to win. How do we find so many of such warriors in the ranks of ordinary troops? So, you must ask them for these elite soldiers as well. In fact, you must even force the Xue Hun Manor and the Silver Blizzard City to dispatch their elites in the troops youll lead to the battle"
"Huh? What do you mean?" A bright light flashed in Jun Wu Yis eyes.
"We can also kill with a borrowed knife!"
Jun Mo Xies white teeth became visible as he flashed a faint smile. And, they started to glitter in the flickering light of the candle. In fact, he looked like a man-eating beast as he put his hand down, and ferociously said, "This conspiracy to kill you will come with a heavy price. They want us to be finished?! But then, every powerful faction will meet their end with us! Who else wants to leave this world? Who dares to mess with my Jun Family?! How can we allow their plans to work so smoothly? Their fate will accompany ours if we lose even a single drop of blood!"
"And, here is where you should be taking the advantage, Uncle! You should reply on your position in this matter!" Jun Mo Xies eyes narrowed as a murderous aura surged out from his body, "They plan to send our Jun Family to its funeral, but they shall make their own preparations for the time we emerge victorious in this plot!"
"It seems like well be throwing away our lives if we agree to this. So, we must have others to die alongside us! These Xuan experts want you to die by sending you to lead only ordinary soldiers. So, we will keep that as our condition! And, we wont agree to do anything if they dont agree to this demand. Because that will be a blatant entrapment! And, why should we go to hell when they wont? How come their lives are more precious than ours? And if they do agree, then he he who knows who will die"
Jun Mo Xie gave a cold laugh and said, "Rest assured, Uncle itll be alright." Then, he turned and left.
The three Dongfang brothers glanced at Jun Wu Yi, and walked out as well.
"Your Third Uncle has the heart of a man who desires to die." Dongfang Wen Qing looked at the full moon, and took a deep breath. And, the sharp smell and aura of the forest entered into his nostrils.
"If only I had known earlier" Jun Mo Xie said gloomily, "His heart has been showing signs of depression for a while now. If grandfather wasnt that old or I hadnt been such a waste in my early days then, Third Uncle wouldve perhaps He had been suffering from that loss for so many years. Anyone else wouldve killed themselves numerous times by nowAnd now, you have arrived. That tantamount to protection for me in fact, its equal to me getting a tyrannical patron. So, Third Uncle... perhaps cant bear it anymore"
"Thats also true" the three brothers sighed as they spoke, "Its hard to guess the blow that matter mustve dealt to your Third Uncle. Didnt he always have pride as a great man? We wouldve gone mad long back if we were in his place. Yet, your Third Uncle has been suffering that torture for over ten years now!"
"This ordeal of his wont last long Ive decided it!" Jun Mo Xie had gone silent for a while before he softly came to speak these words. The other three suddenly raised their heads to look at him. And, their eyes were full of amazement.
[He would have to face the Silver Blizzard City if wants to erase Jun Wu Yis suffering. Does he think its easy?]
"Im going to sleep. Im really tired," Jun Mo Xie spoke those few words, turned, and then walked away.
[What?] The uncles were shocked. They felt as if their heads would explode from the confusion. [We were discussing such a grave topic and yet, this brat says that he wants to sleep? That hes tired? Doesnt he know that the Jun Family is at the edge of ruin at this juncture?]
"How is this brat so heartless?!" They shook their heads in unison, and walked away.
Jun Mo Xie blew out the lamp. He then thought of a move. Then, he disappeared from the tent; he appeared like an illusion as he quickly moved towards Tian Fa.
He was suddenly outside the Southern Heaven City. Jun Mo Xie then felt at ease, and initiated his Yin Yang Escape at its full force. His body seemed like a meteor as his incorporeal shadow moved onwards.
[Its obvious that Third Uncle is determined to participate in this battle.] Jun Mo Xie settled his thoughts. [I must find Long Crane and Big Bear and, as fast as I can. It will turn out to be a case of an accidental friendly-fire if those two bastards dared to attack Third Uncles regiment since theyll unknowingly end-up attacking the people who are on their own side!]
[And anyway you people think that I cant kill with a borrowed knife? Im much more adept at this kind of game than you are!]
Jun Mo Xie obviously couldnt act as himself at that time; nor could he show his real face. So, he would have to change his identity into that of the Mysterious and Skillful expert. And, he felt quite happy about this; [its not going to be easy even when this skillful expert gets involved. It seems that I will have to work very hard and very ferociously once again.]
Jun Mo Xie felt like a dragon at sea or a tiger in the forest the moment he entered Tian Fa. In fact, he had crossed around twenty-five kilometers in a single moment.
It was extremely relaxing for him. And, very easy!
Whether it was his outer body or inner soul everything felt extremely relaxed. And, this relaxed and extremely satisfied feeling started to increase his fondness for the Tian Fa forest.
This was the most dangerous and cruel place in the entire Xuan Xuan Continent as per the common legends. However, this territory was still giving a sense of comfort to Jun Mo Xies heart!
