Chapter Two Hundred and Thirty Six – New Life?
Surrender was a very normal matter in Little Mountain Jie. It was extremely hard to survive here. The result of fighting to the end was injuring both sides. Once a group’s power was damaged, they would quickly be swallowed up by another group.
Surrender became an implicit agreement between the factions in Little Mountain Jie. Those that did not understand how to surrender died quickly. Those that did not accept surrender also died quickly. Fight and surrender was the bread and butter of life. There were all kinds of people under Venerable Chi’s command. In Little Mountain Jie, anything like loyalty was an illusion, no one would speak of it.
Seeing the situation was not to their benefit, it was normal to him that the remaining people would surrender.
Xie Shan suddenly went next to Gongsun Cha’s ear and said something in a low voice. He was very joyful inside. He hadn’t expected Venerable Chi to have something as good as this!
Gongsun Cha’s face was dark as he listened to the end without saying a word.
Just at this time, the surrounding xiuzhe suddenly shifted restlessly.
Noticing the shock and fear on everyone’s eyes, Gongsun Cha raised his head to follow their gaze. His pupils suddenly shrunk, his dark face changing instantly.
At some unknown time, the blue sky where the sun was shining brightly was filled with stars of various sizes.
There was none of the brightness of the stars at night time, but every single one was extremely distinct. Even the blinding sunlight could not steal their light.
Gongsun Cha felt a bone-piercing cold rise from the bottom of his feet.
“So strange! Why would stars appear in the daylight?” Someone asked with puzzlement.
“Dunno. It’s an apparition, probably not anything good.” The person responding was full of worry.
Everyone discussed in low voices. Even those xiuzhe who had surrendered and were tied up put their attention on the sky above their heads.
Gongsun Cha did not say anything. His entire body felt cold, his limbs numb. It was like there was a heavy rock on his chest.
Stars in Daytime!
He did not know what its appearance really meant, but he clearly remembered the first time he saw the Stars in Daytime in Sky Moon Jie, the nightmarish terror that made his bones tremble.
Now, Little Mountain Jie had a repeat of Stars in Daytime.
For some unknown reason, terror took over Gongsun Cha’s body. He forced himself to lower his head, tearing his gaze away from the strange sky.
After a while, his feelings calmed. Such a strange apparition definitely had nothing to do with him, why should he care? His attention landed back on the xiuzhe who had surrendered.
The other xiuzhe had calmed down after than Gongsun Cha did. In their minds, even the strangest apparitions could not compare to the enormous change in Little Mountain Jie.
Seeing Gongsun Cha’s attention land back on the xiuzhe, Xie Shan hurriedly asked, “What to do with these people?”
“Kill them,” Gongsun Cha’s expression was calm as he lightly said.
“Kill all of them?” Xie Shan was startled and asked instinctively.
“What?” Gongsun Cha tilted his head to look at Xie Shan.
Meeting Lil’ Miss’ calm and slightly delicate gaze, Xie Shan’s heart froze as he unconsciously avoided the gaze.
Gongsun Cha’s orders were loyally carried out. However, everyone’s faces were slightly unnatural. They were shocked at Lil’ Miss’ viciousness. Killing was extremely normal to them. Who hadn’t killed? But massacring captives … …
But when they saw the calmness on Gongsun Cha’s face, no one dared to speak.
From beginning to end, Gongsun Cha personally watched as all the captives were killed, his eyes not even blinking. That was truly killing without blinking! Xie Shan’s scalp felt numb. The faint and bashful smile on Lil’ Miss’ face made him only have one thought – run!
Suppressing the urge to turn and run, he was full of regret. Why had he showed off? Now, he was Lil’ Miss personal body. Xie Shan’s mouth felt bitter.
Gongsun Cha clapped, the usual shy smile on his face. “Everyone performed well today.”
No one made a sound.
“Five teams stay and guard here. Everyone else, return to camp, now.” He did not look at the corpses on the ground, turning and leaving.
Clear Sky Sect was built on top of a snowy mountain, the jie river roared past here as it entered Sky Water Jie. Among the white snow, tall towers stood, all of them built from second-grade snow crystals, extremely extravagant! Six thousand steps of ice stairs curved down the mountain. At the bottom end of the ice stairs was a crystal tablet made from a whole piece of snow crystal seven zhang tall. Written on it in cinnabar ink were two bright words – Clear Sky.
At this time, Clear Sky Sect was a mess.
“I don’t know! Old Forefather rang the warning bell!”
“Then something major definitely happened!”
“Stop wasting effort guessing. Let’s move faster. We’ll be punished if we are late.”
Disciples of various ages hurried to the big hall. In a short while, all the disciples had gathered, an entire patch of silent black. The sect leader and others were standing on the side.
On the meditation mat at the very front was a xiuzhe whose hair was loose. He was wearing a snowy-white robe, appearing about forty or so. He was Clear Sky Old Forefather. The remaining and only jindan of the Clear Sky Sect.
Clear Sky Old Forefather slowly started to speak, his voice clear.
“Just now, there was a worldly apparition. Stars in Daytime, it is an inauspicious omen.”
Once the words came out, the crowd fell into a fervor. Many people had seen the Stars in Daytime just now, but no one had expected that even the Old Forefather was also alarmed.
“Send someone to investigate!” Clear Sky Old Forefather said, his words absolute.
“Yes!” The sect leader lowered his head in compliance.
“How are the recent supplies?” Clear Sky Old Forefather asked, “Have the ling grains from Hundred Flower Alliance been delivered on schedule?”
The sect leader said respectfully, “They have been delivered at the scheduled time. They hope that they can trade for some third and fourth-grade gold element materials, and have given extremely generous prices. They are willing to use a batch of third- and fourth-grade talismans to trade. They are also willing to give Old Forefather a sixth-grade Begonia Lantern in tribute.”
Clear Sky Old Forefather said in a deep voice, “Hundred Flower Alliance are skilled in entering the path through flowers. I have heard of their Begonia Lantern before, it’s not a bad talisman. However, they want gold element materials, not wood element materials?”
“Yes, this disciple does not understand, but they are truly purchasing gold element materials,” the sect leader responded.
Clear Sky Old Forefather thought and then said, “Send them a reply. Find a place inside the jie to open a market and sell ling grains. Get Hundred Flower Alliance to send a group of xiu slaves. We will sell them to other people, and use ling grains to purchase materials.”
“Old Forefather is wise,” the sect leader flattered.
“How many ningmai disciples does our sect have?”
“Old Forefather, there is one hundred and twenty people.”
“Too little!” Clear Sky Old Forefather shook his head, “Go recruit a group of ningmai and make them the Outer Hall. Their job is to take care of the affairs of the jie.”
“You shall personally go to Sky Water Jie.” Clear Sky Old Forefather thought and then said, “You are to do two things on this trip. The first matter is to see if there is a chance to meet and ally with other factions. The other is to buy a secret paradise to become another home for the sect. Disciples of the sect who show promise shall all go to the second home to cultivate. If our sect can have a few more jindan, this Little Mountain Jie will become our backyard.”
“This disciple understands!” The sect leader was full of admiration. Old Forefather was a visionary. If these matters could be accomplished, Clear Sky Sect’s rule of Little Mountain Jie could not be shaken.
The ling energy of Little Mountain Jie had withered, but the mines had not been exhausted. It was more than enough for this one jie to support Clear Sky Sect!
“Do not worry. I will stay and guard for you.” Old Forefather waved his hand.
Zuo Mo’s vision was completely black, a rank odor continuously burrowing into his nose.
Where was this?
Had he died?
That wasn’t right, he hadn’t died.
After thinking for a while, he finally recalled fighting with the Bloody Horned Great Serpent.
That big guy was truly strong. Fear still lingered.
Impulsiveness was really a flaw! Why had he not managed to control himself? He made a deep self-reflection, and built his resolution that he would turn and run the next time he met something like this.
It had seemed as though that he had killed the big guy, he thought back uncertainly.
Many of the memories were blurry. After thinking for a while, he had not discovered anything.
Itchiness occurred all over his body, pulling him from his memories. His attention came back to the question of where he was.
He did not move, but controlled his consciousness. After he started practicing [Embryonic Breathing Spiritual Cultivation], it had become his habit to always use the consciousness to investigate when he encountered something.
Why was it like this?
If he did not clearly know that this was his body, he definitely would not believe the body in front of him had any connection to him.
It was full of vitality!
Extremely dense vitality!
The earth energy inside his body was so thick it was almost in liquid form, and flowed through every corner of his body. A blooming vitality, strong life force. Zuo Mo could clearly feel that intoxicating feeling.
What shocked him anymore was that he could not find any bit of familiarity with the body.
Blood, flesh, sinew, bone … …
It was completely unfamiliar. It was like a brand new body, a new and perfect body.
At the same time, he found the shell that was tightly covering his body! So strange, why would he be inside a shell?
He reflexively pushed out. Pia, the shell cracked. Light streamed through the crack. It was slightly blinding. Fresh air flowed into the shell. Zuo Mo felt it was unspeakable pleasurable. He greedily breathed in and pushed out!
The shell instantly shattered into pieces and flew in all directions.
Zuo Mo stood naked in the air. The fresh air, the bright light, it made him feel like he was reborn.
It really was comfortable. He could not help but breathe in deeply.
At this time, he finally noticed the Golden Armor Guards standing nearby with their swords. So he had came back to camp. His heart relaxed.
Suddenly, he detected many people were flying near on the outside. It was Gongsun Shidi. He bent his head and scanned his bare body, instantly paling.
“Who took off ge’s clothes?”
He hurriedly found a set of ling armor inside the ring and rapidly put it on.
Just as he finished dressing, the door opened with a bang. Gongsun Cha rushed in with a group of people.
Gongsun Cha narrowed his eyes. “Who are you?”
Zuo Mo stilled, his heart discontent. “Shidi, you don’t even recognize me?”
Gongsun Cha’s expression froze on his face. The other people also had strange expressions like they had seen a ghost.
The response from everyone made Zuo Mo realize something. He unconsciously reached to touch his face.
It was like his hand had been bitten by a snake, shrinking back lightning fast. His expression changed dramatically!
This feeling was not right … …
Without another word, his hand flipped, and a ball of mist floated at the center of his palm, quickly turning to a smooth water mirror.
Zuo Mo was dumbstruck.
Translator Ramblings: I didn’t realize so many of you were interested in Zuo Mo’s face.
Fang Xiang slips in more information about life in Little Mountain Jie. It is not a good life right now. Winning is very important. We also meet Clear Sky Forefather, the jindan that Zuo Mo has to defeat in order to leave this jie. The Clear Sky Sect is has its own plans.

Thanks for the chapter! Been waiting the whole time for this
Also the reason for the sudden interest in Zuo Mo’s face is because 2 days ago there was a very heated debate on NovelsUpdates. This started when someone was asking for a list of ugly to very plain MC and a lot of people put down Zuo Mo as a very handsome MC while another group fought back saying that the story never painted Zuo Mo as a handsome MC.
Thanks now when I think of zuo mo I will imagine spock from star trek
Thanks for the chapter😀
Waited for this moment for a long time now 😀
Thank you for the chapter 🙂
I wonder what he looks like?
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter!
Damn it, I wanted to know about his face in this chapter! XD Damn cliffy!
Thanks for the chapter :3
But a second time the stars in daytime … what will happen if it appears a third time?`:P
Thats when C’Thun arrives.
Dammit, the author is teasing us here. Now we have to wait another 24 hours to know what he looks like. XD
Thank you for the chapter. Reading World of Cultivation is a must for me before going to sleep every night. 🙂
Is that shell… impurities and all that bad stuff?
That and exploded flesh from the battle that happened throughout his body.
Err.. i think it’s better for the imagination if i say it’s “Scabs”. incase anyone still don’t know, it’s the hardened layer of blood when you cut or hurt yourself
There’s a lot more there than just blood though. Still, no reason to think about it too deeply. Imagine it as a silk cocoon if that’s what makes you happy 🙂
Yeah… a red, chunky, smelly cocoon…
Of course we are…
Someone even made a poll…
Thx 4d ch
I have a feeling that they’re going to try to recruit Zuo Mo’s group. It seems like a good opportunity to slaughter their ningmai, but I’m not sure that they’re ready to take down the jindan yet and they’d likely not have much time after killing off the ningmai before he showed up.
Of course, Stars in Daytime will likely bring the yaomo, which could cause the jindan to pact up his sect and flee.
Thanks for the new chapter! Zuo Mo’s makeover is complete~
interesting grave stone. must be connected to stars in day time.
I now feel sorry for the clear sky sect. That planned sales location is about to become battle central. I think that patriarch is underestimating the value of ling grains in the little mountain jie.
The fighting around that location will become especially fierce. Zou Mo’s group will have even better advantage and I expect that a good first step would be to ambush/ raid this out post as a first step to leaving the jie.
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
Zombie metamorphosed?!! What did he turn into?! A butterfly? A Ghoul? A handsome shixiong?!
And i wonder if gongsun already suspect zuo mo to be the cause of “star in daytime”.. also, it seems Pu is influencing Gongsun More than meatbun imagined.. he became too calculative and forgot to have a common sense.. hmm.. maybe that can be blamed cause he didn’t get the memo on “no killing the quiters”
Please let zuo mo be uglier I wish he becomes even more hideous please…
Okay this is like the mother of all cliffhangers, lol. 😉
Next chapter, we’ll find if Zuo Mo has turned into a tall, muscular, handsome dreamboat of a man who will make all women swoon when they look at him. Tee hee.
(Hey, he’s also quite wealthy, isn’t he? Then… is Zuo Mo about to turn into a Gao Fu Shuai??? NO! CAN’T BE! THIS IS NOT RIGHT!)
He bent his head and scanned his bare body, instantly paling.
“Who took off ge’s clothes?”
*Make a weird expression*
*Face paralyzed again*
*New (weird) face appears!*
I hope his face is still expressionless. Its one of the most interesting facets of him.
Not very hopeful though.
That lady is about to join the group, so it’s good time for makeover on MC._.
Oh damn those poor guys got killed without knowing why.
That happens to a lot of minor characters.
I bet Zuo Mo is secretly a prince! Or not! His real face, will definitely reveal something about his identity, even if he hasn’t recovered his memories. I’m leaning towards being involved with Yaomo, but perhaps he’s some long lost rich young master of a big sect (lol) because of the Five Elements Bead. He definitely isn’t ordinary, considering that most xiu follow the path of the sword alone, and impurities and the elements aren’t very popular. Personally, I bet he is a mo, because (I think) the gravestone is a mo as well!
Please keep the zombie face T.T
Thanks for the chapter,
So what’s the usual prefix a zombie gets after it successfully evolves?
His comment, golden
But I hope he remains expressionless
I so~ wanna know~
thanks for the chapter!
Thank you so much!! 😘😘😘
This cliff hanger gives us no face! 😛
But this such exciting turn of events, now even more then having a face, he will have expressions. Two dollars says he misses his zombie face later.
P.S Another note, his former master and sect will no longer recognize his presence… wait they did that already. It’s going to be interesting when they meet again, hilarity is sure to ensue.
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and warlord212!
thank you sires!! thank you for your hard work!
Nooo our stoned zombie faced MC 🙁
Noo he can no longer have a straight face no matter the situation, it’s a really good thing to have, sad that he lost it.
Like a butterfly he exits his chrysalis..or a snake shedding its skin more accurately.
I remember you said that he was never going to become good looking, so it didn’t matter to me. More interested in finding out who did it and why!
Ahhhhh so curious! 😳😳
Is he handsome? Looks horrible?
I just don’t dare to hope because of the previous cliff haha. Why his hand feel like it was bitten by a snake? Don’t tell me his face scared so bad it’s become a real zombie now :”P
Thanks for the chapter!🍀
