Chapter Three Hundred and Eighteen – Human Wrecking Ball

Zuo Mo and Lil’ Miss looked at each other, and understood what the other was thinking.

It hadn’t been long but Vermillion Bird Camp completely finished their recovery. The supplies of Vermillion Bird Camp was generous, and each person carried enough jingshi so that they could quickly recover ling power. He glanced at Shu Long. Noticing Shu Long’s nearly imperceptible nod, he had to silently praise the powerful recovery speed of mo skills.

The power inside his body had also silently recovered. The strength of the Great Day mo physique far surpassed both the Guard Camp and his imagination.

Zuo Mo straightened his spine and looked at the three troops opposite him. His heart was filled with the belief that they would win!

The silent feeling of confidence had formed between these people without their own knowledge.

He shifted his body. Almost at the same moment, Vermillion Bird Camp and Guard Camp started to move.

Vermillion Bird Camp was like a gust of clear wind. As the troop gathered and scattered, it was ethereal and nimble, carrying its unique sharp killing intent that was like a blade. While the Guard Camp was like a dense steel flood. They were not quick, but they were a tyrannical wave of destruction.

Zuo Mo was at the very front of the troop. He pressed his lips together tightly, his eyes slightly slowed as his body stood straight like a spear. The Sonic Lightning Walnuts that flew around his body drew out threads of silver light.

On his left rear flank was Vermillion Bird Camp waiting to act. If one looked closely, they would find the entire Vermillion Bird Camp was like a compressed spring that was silently trembling and filled with the aura of danger. Gongsun Cha did not sit on the broad Green Cloud Sword like he usually did. He had stood up, his eyes curving into crescents, and a shy smile on his face. A blade-like light flashed through the eyes of the Vermillion Bird Camp xiuzhe.

On his right rear flank, the Guard Camp was silent and motionless. They were like a troop of battle servants from thousands of years ago. Shu Long was at the very center of the troop, steady and murderous, yet motionless. The black heavy armor encased them tightly, and separated them from the outside. The fiendishness from the slightly lowered eyes made people feel the battle intent roiling away behind this deathly silent flood!

Zuo Mo and his people’s movements instantly attracted everyone’s attention. Tian Ling Zi’s trio changed expression. They commanded  their troops to retreat fifty zhang. Zuo Mo’s action of taking out twenty Sonic Lightning Walnuts  had destroyed their notions of taking advantage of the situation, but the news that came had given them the hope they could share in the spoils.

They had made the decision to not provoke the Master of Golden Crow City. As long as they managed to keep track of him, then after tomorrow’s battle they would receive some merit. They prepared to distance themselves at any moment.

Zuo Mo decided to fight quickly.

He raised his right hand and then chopped down hard. “Kill!”

A cold light flashed through Lil’ Miss’ crescent eyes. Vermillion Bird Camp who had been waiting for the signal suddenly exploded. Hundreds of sword energies tore the air!

Howls shrieked through the air.

Shu Long gave a low shout, “Kill!”

The black energy shifted and twisted. Thousands of black energy threads gathered and formed a black flood in the general shape of a snake. Waves of deep shrieks came from in inside.

The sky seemed to have suddenly darkened.

The aura of destruction and the terrifying killing energy filled the sky. Everyone paled.

The trio felt their limbs turn cold. Each of them had pale faces. Only now did they realize how idiotic their ideas were! Regret filled Tian Ling Zi’s heart. At this time, he could only shout at the top of his lungs, “Retr… …”

His pupils suddenly expanded. He lowered his head, and saw a hand bursting out from his chest.

The xiuzhe around Tian Ling Zi looked at him as though they saw a ghost. The terror inside their eyes spread through their hearts like spiderwebs.

A figure with golden wings on its back disappeared from their field of view.

This attack was flawless!

The Light Void Wings on his back lightly flapped, and a rich flow of power seemed to flood in like the tide. His figure was like lightning and flew out a great distance. Zuo Mo did not feel any panic at being in battle. His mind was unusually serene. He carefully experienced the power from the Light Void Wings behind his back. Under the terrifying power, it was not an easy matter to control his posture.

This battle, however, was the perfect chance to learn.

As for the Sonic Lightning Walnuts, wastefulness was shameful … …

The Light Void Wings on his back shook, and his vision blurred. He appeared half a zhang in front of a xiuzhe.


Zuo Mo who had just been very smug made a strange sound. Before he could react, he smashed onto the other’s ling shield.


The ling shield instantly broke. Zuo Mo’s earlier momentum did not dissipate, and heavily collided with the other..

Zuo Mo only heard a wail and the sound of bones breaking. It was like he hit a sandbag. He unconsciously moved the Light Void Wings on his back. A strong force passed over, and his figure uncontrollably disappeared again.

He was like a person-shaped wrecking ball that had completely lost control and bounced between the people in the crowd.

But his Great Day mo physique was very strong. Adding on that terrifying speed, bones broke and limbs tore off wherever he passed. The wails echoed in his ears.

He saw the others could not wound him and decided to ignore them to concentrate on controlling the Light Void Wings. Only when he could truly control the Light Void Wings would he have the true assets to fight against jindan. Every one of the six transformations of the Great Day mo physique were powerful. If he could adeptly use them, his power would furiously grow.

Vermillion Bird Camp used a completely different style. Each platoon was like a blade. They were like butchers dismembering ling beasts, accurate, at ease, and without hurry.

Guard Camp was still unmoving at their spot, but the crazily dancing black energy was changing strangely. It suddenly gathered and scattered, sometimes turning into a large snake, and sometimes as countless small snakes. The unpredictability and strangeness of the Little Mo Kill was fully expressed.

However, no matter if it was the waves of charges from the Vermillion Bird Camp, or the Little Mo Kill of Guard Camp, none of them dared to go close to Zuo Mo.

Zuo Mo’s dashes and crashes made everyone in Vermillion Bird Camp feel shock, and distance themselves. If they were accidentally hit, they would end here. Any xiuzhe that Boss hit had wailed, flew out a long distance through the air like a sandbag, and was smashed to pieces as they crashed into the ground.

No one was left alive!

No one was left alive if they were hit … …

Their hearts felt a chill. They could clearly see that Boss’ posture when he hit others was very strange. This sign made it evident that Boss could not fully control himself. If they were killed due to being hit while Boss moved uncontrollably, that was a true embarrassment. Who could they complain to?

The xiuzhe of Vermillion Bird Camp distanced themselves from Zuo Mo and traced out a long arc to circle around to kill the xiuzhe that wanted to escape.

Gongsun Cha’s smile had frozen on his face. He was looking with shock at the sky.

Compared to Vermillion Bird Camp’s avoidance, Guard Camp was even more depressed. When they had seen Vermillion Bird Camp moving aside, they had been slightly proud. Since they were attacking from a distance, they were very safe.

But shock quickly came onto Shu Long and the others’ faces.

The black energy of Little Mo Kill would go crazy and become uncontrollable for some unknown reason if it neared Boss and dispersed in all directions. In this short period of time, the black energy expended on the enemies wasn’t as much as the black energy that Boss had scattered.

What situation was this … …

Having met such a strange situation for the first time, Shu Long could only grimace.

Out of helplessness, he could only control the Little Mo Kill and attack the enemy from the fringes .

An extremely strange scene played out in the battlefield in the sky. Little Mo Kill and Vermillion Bird Camp formed the borders of the battlefield together like a steel wall. No xiuzhe was able to escape.

Inside this sphere, the sound of impact continuously rang out.

Zuo Mo saw the other was not able to damage his Great Day mo physique and decided to not care about his posture, and just focus on controlling the Light Void Wings on his back.

Therefore, he used all kinds of peerlessly strange positions and astounding speed to hit one xiuzhe after the other out of the spherical battlefield.

The people of Vermillion Bird Camp were alert. They were nervous about the enemies that were hit. No one would add another blow to these people. What they were alert about was not getting hit by these enemies. There was an unfortunate Vermillion Bird Camp xiuzhe that had been lightly injured by an enemy that had been sent flying.

It was a calamity from the heavens!

After a while, the enemies inside the spherical battlefield had completely collapsed. They furiously attacked the outside border!

In the sky, the blade-like charges instantly started!

Little Mo Kill was activated at full power without anything held back.

The wails of the enemy rang in their ears. Flowers spun out in the sky, and like dumplings, they continuously fell down.

The minds of these Sky Water Jie xiuzhe had been robbed, and their morale was at its lowest point. The entire troop was collapsing at a rapid rate. Having lost the commander, with collapsing morale, without motivation, they were just rabble. In front of elite troops like Vermillion Bird Camp and Guard Camp, they were a group of sheep waiting for slaughter.

The merciless slaughter only continued for a short hour before the entire battlefield was cleared.

None of the spectating xiuzhe were able to maintain their calm. They looked with pale white faces at the empty battlefield, and looked at the Master of Golden Crow City’s subordinates methodically looting the battlefield.

These people’s practiced and crisp actions, these movements that did not have any presence of killing, made the xiuzhe from Sky Water Jie smell the scene of blood and fire after such a battle.




“So weak!” Lei Peng jerked a jade pendant from a corpse as he snorted coldly. “Just this group of trashy people, and they want to attack us. They really don’t know anything.”

“People die for wealth, birds die for food, what’s so strange about that? Weren’t we the same in the past?” Nian Lu did not even raise his head, his movements were clean and brisk.

Lei Peng stilled at the words. Tilting his head to think, he nodded and said, “That’s true.” He then furrowed his brow and said, “But we are no longer the same. But how are we not the same?”

Nian Lu’s hands stopped moving. He straightened his spine, and said seriously. “We aren’t the same now.” But he also could not pinpoint where they were not the same.

After thinking fruitlessly for a while, Lei Peng was impatient. “Whatever, what are we thinking about that for? Just follow Boss. In any case, an was thinking that our way of living now isn’t so bad. It’s worth it even if we die!”

“En,” Nian Lu made a sound of agreement, his eyes deep. “That’s right. We lived long enough since we didn’t die in Little Mountain Jie.”




Zuo Mo panted heavily. It was the first time he tried out close combat fighting in a real fight like this. He hadn’t felt it before, but when he stopped, he felt his entire body was unspeakably sore. He inhaled sharply. It looked as though this Great Day mo physique had its limits. He couldn’t be so brash in the future.

“You guys are too vicious!”

A choked female voice came from the sky. Zuo Mo raised his head and found a female xiuzhe within the crowd was swearing and pointing at his nose.

The surrounding suddenly became silent.

The faces of the xiuzhe beside Zuo Mo all darkened.

“What? Do you want to kill me too?” The female xiu proudly flew out of the crowd. Her eyes held tears, and her expression was excited. “They weren’t even defending themselves. Why can’t you give them a road to live? Why do you have to kill them all?”

Translator Ramblings: I was gone for a few hours and it seemed the comments section exploded. That made for a lot of good reading about the stupidity of certain people. There is a mindset the sects have because they have more jindan than Hundred Flower Alliance, they are prepared, and they have trained battalions which outnumber Zuo Mo’s group so they think they will win. They essentially believe Hundred Flower Alliance lose due to the factor of surprise and they will be “better.” The jindan will be kept in reserve because the sects are prominent ones and they want “face.” It will look like they bully outsiders if they use jindan while the other group isn’t. On the other hand, Zuo Mo and the others are in a mindset of war which means their actions are not “honorable” and they don’t care that much about “face,” not that Zuo Mo cared much about it in the first place.

Zuo Mo’s armies need hazard pay to help them with injuries from their own boss. Nian Lu and Lei Peng are stand ins for the rest of Zuo Mo’s people. They realize they have changed … … killing jindan using teamwork is pretty cool, even if they are not the strongest jindan

    1. He might take her down a leg after all she is described as proud when she has no right to be and ge doesn’t tolerate sass

    2. Ge will scold her!
      Who are you? What are you doing here? What are your relation with those guys? Why you didn’t say anything when they surround us?
      This is why hysterical women are … (rant omitted)

    3. Yeah, I’m pretty sure he’s going to call her a naive idiot, I really doubt he’ll kill her though. Her naivety seems reminiscent to me of that girl that used to follow him around a lot back at the sect.

      1. Please please don’t compare Xiao Guo to this bitch.

        Xiao Guo, in a similar situation, jumped in front of Zuo Mo to shield him with her body. Big Mouth Girl here never tried to throw herself between the two sides to stop the combat. All she does is rant after it’s over.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!
    What they were alert about was not getting hit by these enemies
    not -> avoid
    having a not in there makes it seems like they’re not worried about being hit by the enemies rather than trying their best not to get hit by the xiuzhe cannonballs

  2. Why is she even surprised? Wiping out those who have declared themselves your enemies is standard practice in the cultivation world.

    I wonder if they’ll wait around for the incoming army or just loot the corpses and move on.

    1. Per the comment, she is surprised because she she is coddled and doesn’t view this as war. She is shortsighted and only sees what is in front of her (they were defenseless!!!!).

      1. So she’s naive and stupid and didn’t realize that those “helpless” people would have slaughtered the MC’s group in a heartbeat if they had shown any sign of weakness. Yeah, she’s not going to live long in the cultivation world, regardless of the MC’s reaction.

    1. I thought it was bc they don’t fight for riches anymore but for ZM (who just happens to be a money loving miser)

      1. Yes, what they gain are pride, undying loyalty, and a new-found purpose in life.
        They just can’t put them into words, considering their old background which is more like bandits and rogues.

  3. The stupidly proud female has a point but then again is to nieve. At this point ZM and his people are like a pack a wolves that were once starved. They will only respond to 1 of 2 things, fight or flight. And considering the sayings “being mercifully to ones enemies is being heartless to oneself” and “one must pull weeds up by the roots” when they fight their will be no prisoners (especially bc that takes money)

    1. Nope, her point is wrong. They were only defenseless because ZM’s group outclassed them. The only reason they didn’t attack in the first place was because of the sonic walnuts and the only reason they stuck around was because they wanted to earn merit by following and reporting on ZM.

      If the power sects came tomorrow with 50 jindan and wiped out ZM’s group would she have spoken up?

      If a small yaomo group showed up and was slaughtered by ZM’s group would she have spoken up?

      1. I was just acknowledging the fact that yes it usually is in bad taste to kill people who would have surrendered otherwise you’re right

      2. This goes back to what was discussed in Little Moutain jie. Whether it’s bad taste to kill off people who surrendered or have surrendered is subjective to circumstance.

        Heck, I even suspect that the concept “on earth” of allowing people to surrender historically had less to do with the ethics and more to do with financial and strategic gains.

      3. EDIT: What WE discussed in the Little Moutain jie ARC.

      4. It was pretty common practice in ancient times to slaughter or enslave entire populations of the losing side to a war. Rich people were often either ransomed or taken as hostages against further action by their relatives.

        From memory the population of Carthage after the Romans conquered the city dropped from over 500,000 to 55,000. The entire death toll for the Punic Wars was close to 2 million.

        Good treatment of surrendered prisoners is a fairly recent phenomenon.

  4. This has a lot of plot holes, enemy isn’t aware that Zuo Mo killed a decently powerful jindan as soon as he entered the city. The sects about to provide reinforcement betting to fight to without jindan just doesn’t make sense, it simply means they aren’t keeping track of their enemies in spite of author making such a big deal out of Zou Mo’s army. This is disappointing.

    1. 1. The sects are not spying on jidan wanderers so how could they know that Zuo killed him? Remember that, that guy was not killed on the center of the city, he was killed on a place without people.
      2. They think that the reason why Zuo won was because of “surprise”. How could they think that a ningmai killed a jidan?

    2. Ya it does seem weird right? But thinking about it, it might not be. If the people from little mountain jie were a cohesive unit after arriving in the new jie then maybe they would have reason to specifically observe ZM. Otherwise dozens of groups with thousands of people broke off from the caravan, who would they follow? The fact they knew a little about ZM’s group is pretty good considering how short of a time they have been there. Though it does seem odd to me that they would fight ZM without kinda after Hundred Flower Alliance got wiped, but they may be assuming ZM’s forces took significant casualties in the fight. It does seem like a large plot hole for FX though.

      1. The group from Bright Water City didn’t have information on the attackers beforehand and just went there after hearing that Hundred Flowers Alliance was being attacked. Also, they weren’t aware how many jindans were at the Hundred Flowers Alliance, if there were any at all, and they arrived too late to see that Golden Crow City killed three of them. As far as they know, they were just rescuing Su Yue and the Hundred Flowers Alliance disciples.

        They didn’t know the enemy, they didn’t know the allies, and they didn’t know themselves.

    3. Really, really, really stupid people living in their own little world with their own sense of superiority. Plot convenience, maybe. I mean, at least one sect was smart enough to not participate. And the super obvious way that they said not to bring any jindan makes me think the author will address this issue.

  5. I wonder shouldn’t the improved great day Mo physique give zuo Mo better contral over his body? Still I got a good la ugh imagining zuo mo squashing the xiuzhe in a ridiculous body posture.

  6. hmm, well, they were clearly asked to get destroyed by Zuo Mo group. really curious, will Zuo Mo kill her? what a stupid woman

  7. Hmm… Who is this women?? Being so unreasonable. Asking to let go of people who were trying to kill and loot them since they couldn’t defend themselves.
    Thanks for the chapter.

  8. yeah stupid girl, If they know they couldn’t even defend themselves then what the heck to go to provoke others humpp! If ZM’s army could not fight anymore, that time I want to see where’s your guys?? huhhh sleep well and prepare die? dream on girl!!

    I love peerless stange position of ZM. hahaaaa

    thank you for this chap ❤️

  9. That sure was a strange way to end the chapter.

    I wouldn’t have expected a xiuzhe to start spouting stuff like “killing is bad” or “you must show mercy to the defeated” or “why can’t we all just get along?”

    And she’s even parading in front of Zuo Mo, challenging him, like: “What? Don’t like what I say? Wanna kill me too? Then kill me, you monster! Let everyone see what an evil demon you are!”

    Amusingly enough, I don’t remember this charitable, compassionate woman saying or doing anything to stop the local xiuzhe when they declared their intention to smash Zuo Mo’s party and started advancing to attack.

    Could she be a Hundred Flowers disciple who only now returned? Or the girlfriend of one of the dead xiuzhe?

    Ignoring her is probably not an option. There must be some kind of reply. I guess next chapter will be all about ethics and philosophy… unless someone decides to whack her and to hell with it. (Not a bad idea, actually… it’s clear now that the local powers want blood, and Zuo Mo must have realized he will have to fight his way out of the jie, so why waste time?)

    1. I’m guessing this is a set up to bring out the flower slaves and shove them in her face.

    2. I’m with you, this would be the right time to bring out the Flower Slaves and declare Hundred Flowers (and everyone who sides with them) evil and inhuman and deserving death.

      Heh, perhaps Shu Long and his thousand followers will reveal themselves as what they are (former xiu slaves) and tell everyone about the horrors of slavery. The xiuzhe audience won’t like it, but slapping them in their faces with their hypocrisy will sure feel good.

  10. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    “But we are no longer the same. But how are we not the same?”
    Of course you’re not~ you just upgraded your status from smallfry mob to a named minions~

    “Whatever, what are we thinking about that for? Just follow Boss. In any case, an was thinking that our way of living now isn’t so bad. It’s worth it even if we die!”
    Yeah, listen to this guy! He’s got the proper mindset of a good minion~


  11. [There is a mindset the sects have because they have more jindan than Hundred Flower Alliance, they are prepared, and they have trained battalions which outnumber Zuo Mo’s group so they think they will win. They essentially believe Hundred Flower Alliance lose due to the factor of surprise and they will be “better.”]

    FOOL! This reasoning is just further confirmation that they deserve what’s coming. Could their own troops have gone against Clear Sky Sect Forefather? Could their own troops have wiped out Flower Alliance even if was a surprise attack? Could their own troops go against three or more jindan, prepared or unprepared? On the farfetched notion that they assume (without going to find out) that ZM’s group succeed without any jindan present shouldn’t they assume the flower alliance jindan are ahead of them in trying to get revenge? FOOL!

  12. Well it least someone mentions how viscous they are… but there’s no freedom of speech in there world. It’s going to cost her dearly.

    1. Oh, they’re ruthless. But the accusation of them being ruthless is hypocritical.

  13. I suppose the Sky Water jie guys feel the same as the loud girl; they were there to posture and maybe beat up the newcomers to show their strength. Take their stuff. Standard wuxia posturing.

    Zuo Mo’s group, meanwhile, is fresh out of a war.

  14. What should be do then? Let them loot and kill us all? You saw how they were looking at my jinshi! Haven’t you heard the saying “no man shall covet another man’s jinshi”.

    Leave them a path of live ?! *sound of spitting* what and let them gather with reinforcements? Does ge look stupid to you?

    Ahh I won’t argue with you.. Just get out of my sight … *walks away like a boss*

  15. I just read this the first part was great though it feels like the recent arcs have turned into the standard martial massacre story.

    If they kill that women for speaking the truth(even if she is very naive) It will certainly pass my threshold for violence. He can explain the reasons for his actions but to kill an outsider who simply stated how savage they were.

    To be honest I feel he was a bit rash in some of his recent judgments in a far more brutal way then before that it has actually lessened his strong points. (Take slavery, it has already been established as a common practice across the world including the sec he came from. If he really wanted to make a point after finding the “flower slaves” A better punishment instead killing Su Yue even is she was a bastard slaver, as it denied the possibility of more fitting justice being preformed (Considering the type of world I would say becoming a slave herself and sold off for jingshi while revealing the sort of method they used to cultivate flowers before of course destroying the techniques.) Before Zuo Mo seemed to have standards and killed because he had to in order to survive here these people are opponents that can’t really fight back though it is true letting them live might cause problems, the overall factions would be more likely to reconcile if needed.

    I greatly miss the Zuo Mo that beat the arrogant rich kids in a duel for jingshi and formed the persona of the scalping zombie.
    I miss the Zuo Mo who farmed his way to jingshi helped out friends and tried to avoid making irreconcilable enemies.
    I miss the hilarious bored lady with the paper crane. I miss the sword worshiping meatheads naive about basically everything but so strong no one can argue.
    I miss his down to earth mind set focused on profit and liable to think things through.

    It feels like the quality has dropped as he formed his super army. Now his interactions have been focused on his soldiers and brothers with seemingly no attempts to form relationships with people he meets. Now he makes jingshi by ripping it from the ruined sects and corpses like so many of these “protagonists”.

    It feels like he is becoming controlled by rage to the point I fear he is at risk of losing everything that made him unique, interesting and relatable.

    Do we ever get elements of the old farming Zuo Mo back? Will Zuo Mo ever regain his cool head or is the ruthless wanton slaughter going to be the norm from here on out?

    1. There is an element of carelessness here and the only reason I think is plausible is that he doesn’t care about what happens in Sky Water Jie because he is leaving to find the Water Cloud Embryo as soon as possible. He might make enemies here, but they are not going to chase him across a number of jie just to kill him.

    2. As much as we miss his old farmer mentality, it just will never come back. He is not a ling farmer anymore. Ever since he decided to face his past, to pursue the truth and his origin, he is already not a simple ling farmer anymore. He actually could choose to not pursue power and stay as a ling farmer, but he didn’t. Now, what he holds in his hand is not only his little life anymore…

  16. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and warlord212! People who push the limits should be prepared to be pushed back.

  17. The woman I guess is Jindan of the hundred flower alliance that was away,otherwise she wouldn’t even be relevant at this point.
    The stupidity of the sects though can be understood because zm army should be tired after that war,secondly they are arrogant fellas and believe all they need is ningmai. They haven’t come across soldiers like zuo mo’s.
    Please come,bring more jingishi for ge!!!!

  18. Why when i am seeing the title i sung it “I came in like a wrecking ball!!!!!”. Epic title, sigh.
    Thank you for the chapter

  19. To be fair it would be nice if he got someone to act like his conscious and be more diplomatic.
    Not that he is not justified in his actions but still he comes with a mentality and ruthlessness of Little Mountain Jie not a more civilized world.
    Pissing people of everywhere is counterproductive. There are Profits! to be had in a civilized world.

Tell me something
