Chapter Four Hundred and Forty Five – Ren Cloud Island


A glowing snake-like stream of water flowed at high speed suddenly exploded against the wall. The stream of water instantly turned into countless beads of water that scattered in all directions.

The water that splashed on the ground squirmed as though they were alive moving along the floor. The water drops quickly gathered in one location. In a short time, they had once again merged into a figure made out of water.

Second Ren was amazed. The power of this man was deep! When this man punched, there was no fist energy, no sound, it was calm and ordinary. But no matter how he dodged, he could not avoid it. When the fist struck his body, his body would be scattered!

But if it was just that, he would not be afraid. Water was shapeless. No matter how strong the other’s punches were, even if it could scatter his body into tiny beads of water, he could gather himself back together without taking any damage. He had defeat many opponents by relying on  this undying method.

But the other’s fists were very strange. Each time his body was destroyed, there would be a strange power that entered into his body. This power was as thin as a hair, it was strange and unpredictable. He had never seen it before. This caused him to have a foreboding feeling.

Even worse was that he could not get near the other at all. The other’s fists were terrifyingly accurate. None of his punches would miss. The shock that Second Ren felt could be imagined. He knew how agile he was, as any flying swords that were slightly slower than him could not hit him.

This young dhyana xiu in front of him was not simple!

Second Ren stared tightly at his opponent, killing intent spreading inside. He made a decision. Even at the cost of being wounded, he had to kill this person!

There had never been a person that dared to step on the Ren Family’s pride so! There had never been a person who dared to harm one hair on  a member of the Ren Family!

Thinking about how Ren Qing had died, Ren Yu felt great sorrow! He and his two brothers only had this one granddaughter. Now even this granddaughter was killed!

They should die!

All of these people should die!

The water essence on his body circulated unusually smoothly. The [Crooked Water Channeling Spell] that he had cultivated for many years, now showed signs of a breakthrough. But Second Ren did not feel any joy at all. There was only one thought in his mind, kill the other person!

At this time, he suddenly heard an enormous explosion coming from Third Ren’s direction. There was a rolling red ball of fire. His chest suddenly felt great pain!

Third Brother was dead!

Second Ren looked away staring angrily at the explosion and fiercely roared like a wild animal!

“Go die!”

Suddenly, his body froze, his expression solidifying on his face. The water that shrouded his body stopped flowing. Slender threads resembling blood appeared on the surface of his water.

His vision quickly became blurred, and the sound of battle became distant to him.

His mind started to blur!

The blood threads that had spread like a spider web  across his body suddenly lit up.


The ball of water turned to a ball of white mist and rose up. When the water mist dissipated, there was nothing left at that spot.

The indifference and emptiness in Zong Ru’s eyes quickly faded. He panted lightly, and a indiscernible expression of exhaustion appeared at his brow. He sighed inside. He was really too weak still. He couldn’t even tolerate the preliminary stage of Attainment Golden Body. However, what really had been effective just now was wish power. If it wasn’t for his wish power, he most likely would not have defeated Second Ren.

He flew next to Zuo Mo and without speaking, he closed his eyes and started to recover.




In a blink, two of the three Ren Family elders were killed. Xu Zheng Wei’s face paled in shock.

What were those strange lines of blood?

Xu Zheng Wei’s heart felt cold. He rejoiced that he had not helped the three Ren Family elders just now. Looking at the present situation, the Ren Family was going to be finished. Even though Eldest Ren was still in a stand-off with that young sword xiu, but there was still one person on the other side that had not acted yet. The conclusion was clear.

He didn’t know where this group of outrageously powerful young people that was had sprouted out of. Each of them was deep in power. Greatly impacted, Xu Zheng Wei’s mind worked rapidly. He didn’t have any sympathy for the fall of the Ren Family. The Ren Family was usually arrogant and ostentatious.

He wondered if these young people were going to settle down here for the long term or were they just passing by. If they were settling down for the long term, the power balance of Xu Ling City was going to change!

Having lived for a long time in Xu Ling City, Xu Zheng Wei knew as long as it was not outrageous, Xu Ling Sect would not act.

He decided if the other was going to settle down, then he definitely had to make a good connection with the other. He didn’t worry about the Cloud Pavilion. With his understanding of the young master of the Cloud Pavilion, the other would not be so stupid to become enemies with such a powerful group of lawless brutes of unknown origins.

Just as Xu Zheng Wei was thinking, the situation changed again.

Wei Sheng’s eyes showed a hint of disappointment. He shook his head gently. “Pity.”

As he finished speaking, he raised his head. Without any sound, the void sword essence pushed against the furiously growing flora turning it into dust at an astounding rate and returning it to nothingness.

The empty sword essence destroyed the last bit of green.

The sword essence moved like a corrosive poison. It started to spread along the strong green vines. Everywhere it passed, the green vines crumbled into dust until nothing was left. Eldest Ren could not make a sound, and didn’t have the time to react. Like a statue, in front of everyone, he was swallowed by the sword essence and also turned to nothingness.


A ring feel to the ground.

Even though he was prepared to make a good relationship with the other, Xu Zheng Wei was still shocked by the scene in front of him.

The Cloud Pavilion’s guards and shopkeepers were all pale as they shook in the corner. When they saw this group clean up the battlefield taking their spoils, as though no one else was present, their lips couldn’t help but tremble.

Such a natural display, if they were not brutes that had went through rains of blood, they would definitely not have this demeanour!




When Shang Wei Ming woke up, he found he was unharmed. He showed a dazed expression. When he was informed that the three Ren Family elders were killed, his head rang and his mind blanked.

Zuo Mo did not give him the time to digest it, asking straightforwardly, “Where is the Ren Family estate?”

The spoils of victory from the three Ren Family elder’s bodies were pitifully few. Other than three jade scrolls, Zuo Mo did not find any of importance or significance. Fighting against such powerful enemies, how could they not gain anything?

Mind blown, Shang Wei Ming instinctively answered, “At Ren Cloud Island.” When the words left his mouth, his mind suddenly cleared and his face changed!

So malicious!

Xu Zheng Wei’s heart also shook but he was not as shocked as Shang Wei Ming. In battles of life and death like this, the conclusion would frequently be like this.

“Ren Cloud Island?” Zuo Mo’s eyes lit up. He hurriedly asked, “How big is it?”

“Almost fifty thousand mu, it is the biggest intermediate-sized cloud island nearby!” Shang Wei Ming hurriedly answered. “Ren Cloud Island is in a good position and the flowing cloud silk that the island produces is famous in this region.”

Zuo Mo’s drool almost spilled out!

More than forty thousand mu, that was a value of more than forty thousand pieces of third-grade jingshi!

Zuo Mo, who had needed a place to settle down, immediately became excited.

“Go, go, go! Let’s go see now!”




The Ren Cloud Island was a flight of four hours from the main island. Zuo Mo took the Black Turtle along when he flew to the Ren Cloud Island.

When they reached Ren Cloud Island, they found that this cloud island was slightly different than other cloud islands. There were many balls of clouds floating in the sky above the cloud island. These clouds almost completely shrouded the cloud island. It was not possible to see the condition of the island.

Zuo Mo found it interesting and wanted to go near to study it.

Once he came near, these slowly moving clouds seemed to be frightened and rippled intensely. In a blink, the snowy-white clouds became inky black!


Inside the black clouds, electrical snakes slithered and blinding lights occasionally appeared. Deep thunder could be heard inside the thick black clouds and lightening shot over.

Zuo Mo jumped in fright. He hurriedly activated Light Void Wings and fled.


A bolt of lightning with the thickness of a wrist flashed past his previous position and reflected on Zuo Mo’s pale little face.

If he was struck by such a thick bolt of lightning, then half of his little life would be gone.

At this time, everyone’s face became serious. Even Gongsun Cha’s expression was slightly ugly. To forcibly take this cloud island, they would have to pay a high price.

Shang Wei Ming hurried to remind, “Boss, use the island card!” Having escaped with his life from the hands of the Ren Family, he was very grateful to Zuo Mo. He was very clear that if he landed in the hands of Ren Qing, his fate would be worse than death. Due to his gratefulness, he tried to help all he could.

“Island card?” Zuo Mo stilled. He recalled that there was a jade card among the things he had taken from the three old men’s bodies. He hurriedly took it out.

There was a cloud engraved on the surface of the jade card. The back of the card was engraved with all kinds of formation scripts.

Zuo Mo’s consciousness swept the island card. He instantly understood. This island card was used to control the formations on the cloud island. Zuo Mo channelled ling power and shouted, “Open!”

The jade card in his hand shot out a beam of light that entered the thick cloud layer.

The black cloud layer that had been rumbling with thunder instantly quieted. The black clouds became white clouds again. The cloud layer retreated to the sides and a broad path appeared in front of them.

Zuo Mo was overjoyed. He flew down first. The other people seeing the situation followed behind.

The arrival of Zuo Mo’s group caused a ruckus on the island. However, when Shang Wei Ming announced in a loud voice that the three Ren Family elders were dead, and the Ren Cloud Island had changed owners, these people calmed down. Most of them were hired workers, not servants. To them, they just changed employers. If this boss wasn’t good, they could leave.

Daren, are we going to stay here in the future?” Lei Peng asked in a rumbling voice.

“What? Not satisfied?”

“Satisfied! Very satisfied!” Lei Peng rubbed his hands, his face full of excitement. “Staying every day in the Black Turtle, an’s bored to death! This place is both big and good … …”

Everyone was very excited. They had a new territory!

This group of battlemaniacs had a desire for territory like the desire men had towards women. They had been reluctant to part with the Golden Crow City. Then they had roamed and killed after that. Now that they finally had territory that belonged to them, the excitement they felt could be imagined.

Without waiting for Zuo Mo to speak, this group sprinted in all directions.

Zuo Mo raised his head. The sky was clear for ten thousand li. He couldn’t help but tsk in wonder. Looking at the island from the outside, there were layers of clouds blocking their view and nothing of the island could be seen. But looking from the island out, nothing was covered.

As expected, this was a good place!

Zuo Mo was very content!

  1. personally I think Wei Sheng is the coolest because he showcased his overwhelming power. It may have visually looked less awesome then the other Jindian fights but in pure quality of his prowess he clearly showed his superiority.
    The author felt like he had put the three grandfathers on approximately the same power level so he then went and show cased the next three great individual powers under Zou Mo. From least and longest fight ( fought with ling power) to shortest and most dominant Wei Sheng.

    1. The longest fight actually was Wei Shengs because they all started fighting at the same time but the eldest was the last one to to be killed. Xie Shan’s fight took a lot of time to describe but it actually only happened in the time to burn an incense stick.

      1. active use of abilities though is a bit different. It felt like Wei Sheng was monitoring the other fights and analyzing his opponents abilities. His actual use of Ling power was much less as well. Both of the other fights rendered the both sides either dead or unable to continue. There was no mention made about Wei needing to rest up so he could have fought another fight immediately afterword’s. It even fells like he could have taken on at least two of those grandfathers.

      2. Oh I agree with you about the power scale. Wei is the strongest. I was just being nit-picky and commenting on the actual elapsed time.

    2. Actually the grandfather Wei Sheng faced was not on the same level of the other two, not only was he supposedly a perfect counter for Wei but he also had a deeper cultivation than all of the present, being jindan second stratum, while everybody else was still first stratum. Meaning Wei’s strenght may be more than just a level above the other two since he was disappointed by his opponent, unlike the others who got the win without that much of a buffer. Wei Sheng is probably on par with a run-of-the-mill jindan third stratum, while the other two are just very strong jindan first stratum, one because he is almost in the second stratum already and the other because it has wish power. So… yeah, for instance if it was Xie Shan facing Wei’s opponent he would have probably 100% lost since he was gonna come up short even in his strong suit which is ling power.

  2. Ok, I guess it’s time for those mad scientists to carve the whole island in turtle style defense.

    1. that island sky formation seams to be pretty good already… might be a good idea to see if you can transplant it onto little black, so you have a car alarm on it…

    2. Forsnt this island already float? Whats to keep the mad scientists from making it a moving island? Ge needs real estate!

      1. well, the cloud sea is literally a sea. There’s probably some gravitational force keeping things stationed where they are.

  3. I thought it was gonna be one kill per chapter. Good thing my guess was off. Hoho

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. they were their strongest force. as for any allies they might have had, any force that can take down 3 jindan in a short time is not to be bothered, especially not for an ally that has already fallen.

      1. True~ Just thinking how there is usually one arrogant idiot in one form or another that provokes them anyways.

  4. Oh and Zou Mo and gang destroy another person’s sense of reality. Shang Wei Meng you have joined the long list of people who’s lives have been up ended by Zou Mo & company. For you it seems to be for the better congratulations you pass Ge’s test welcome to insanity.

  5. Now Zuo Mo finally has some territory on his hands convenient. That family really was arrogant as it is clear from this they didn’t have much backing outside of their personal strength.

    They truly didn’t raise their child well at all if they really cared for her they wouldn’t have spoiled her to the point of stupidity.

    Zuo Mo’s group has instilled natural selection towards that family hopefully things will not escalate out of hand like the last time Zuo Mo interacted with civilization…

    1. In such a setting, teaching your child morals is secondary. Teaching her good sense and survival instincts is primary. She should have been raised like Xu- learn when to speak politely, and when to be quiet and stand back while more powerful individuals fight it out.
      I know she had her grandfathers as shields, but it seems inevitable that some foreigners would eventually stumble in and take her pretty little head since they are ignorant of her family. She is a lemming running right at the cliff.

      1. or at least learn when to keep her mouth shut. the whole episode would have been avoided if she hadn’t started spouting off at the end.

  6. So, there were only four people in the entire family? That seems a bit strange.

    I wonder if Zuo Mo will take this opportunity to farm some ling plants 😉

      1. pay others for casting little rain art? hire medal awarded Ling farmers? that is expensive… ge can do it during his breaks.

    1. It might be expected, really. These were roaming xiu, ie- they are using poor spells that they just happened to have the skill to bring to a high level. They are likely first generation for their family, and personally brought it to prominence. No older generations to give foundations.
      Really, the only surprising bit is the qing’s parents. I didn’t expect much (single ningmai at most), but they were unmentioned (only implied since she is the ‘granddaughter’)

      1. it’s not really poor spells, they are probably quite good actually, since they are able to support jindan cultivation, and above tire one jindan at that.

        Just becouse most Xiu value sword xiu as supreme and formation/crafting as second, doesn’t mean that elemental xiu are bad. they are just unfashionable. the sword wins any 1v1, the formation cultivators are the base defenders, and the body cultivators are the expensive rearguards.

        But a sword cultivator are glass cannons, and the formation sects are immobile, whereas the body cultivators are super expensive, hard to train and lacks attack.

        So really, only the elemental xiu versatile.

  7. The coolest person will always be the scalping zombie mwahahahaha…

  8. Thank you very much for this chapter! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

  9. and now do we get to see Ge do his rain dance? and grow some crops? Ge is a farmer at heart, violence, what is it good for. Nothing, i tell you, a waste of Ge’s precious time. well, except when Ge can use it to steal jingshi. But a true man lets his land grow him wealth while he forges and learns more formations.

  10. I can’t wait to see what kinds of walls they can make with the (ack I forgot the name!) crystal sand they brought from the ancient battlefield. I like fights, and I like to see how they bulldoze over all the stupid people, but I REALLY love reading about the city building and ling fields and beasts. I’m so excited! I hope it’s a long arc (and that we actually get the development I’m looking forward to 😀 )

    Thanks for your hard work! This is one of the highlights of my day this story.

    1. they shouldn’t make walls out of that sand. they are after all only planning on staying for about half a year-a few years at this point. doing the Sun City all over again will be plenty, especially seeing how it’s a formation that makes itself stronger over time, and he now is an even greater forger with even better fire.

      not to mention that the golden sand is so expensive, that using it to build walls (outside of it’s dessert) is so wasteful and expensive that you are likely to draw the attention of the big sects, and making your walls expensive enough for them to motivate to send a huge army over to plunder.

      a bit contra productive for a defensive formation (costing enough to make attacking it worth it)

  11. So good! To think how far Zuo Mo and crew have come is insane. They used to be scared of people in ningmai and now they dominate Jindan with relative ease 😀

    I was thinking if Zuo Mo and his group (they need a sect name already) can fight evenly with Wu Kong Sect as it was before Zuo Mo left. With 4 abnormally strong Jindan, I think Zuo Mo and his group would be roughly equal but still would lose. The students haven’t surpassed the masters get but I feel they r super close

    1. well, their money making skills and turtling skills are already way superior (Ge took the best crafters with him in exile from the sect, and only kept the very best). And if you are facing a defensive battle, Zuo Mos gang is probably your best choise. i sort of want to see what madness Ge and the crafting sect would come up with if they where hired by a large moneybag to forge hold a position, and all materials they asked for where there…

      1. There are only two people from the people he took to the island that are with him. None of the other crafters were the best, they were the ones that were newly absorbed into the sect and that is the very reason they left, no attachment to the sect and the fact that it let them rot on the island when they fled the jie.

    2. No no no.

      Zuo Mo doesn’t have just a few jindan. He has an ARMY. He has several ningmai who are so strong they can defeat a normal jindan in single combat. He has a hundred platoons who can use techniques like three-wave attack to slaughter jindan like cattle.

      Wu Kong sect, on the other hand, is a mess. They have some strong jindan, but, as for the rest, they have no generals, no battlefield training, no war experience, just numbers.

      A battle against Wu Kong would be a replay of the battle against the huge Clear Sky host.

    3. They would win actually because it will not be one-on-one fights. What do you take ge for? Gangfighting. Vermillion Bird Camp vs four jindan, really no contest there.

      1. I think the Ren family only consisted of the 3 Jindan and that Little B*tch. Only granddaughter with parents likely dead, no wonder the 3 stooges spoilt her rotten. Also, given their Rep, no wonder their employees were only hired hands and had no household servants.

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

    3 grandfather and 1 granddaughter… is she an adopted child? They skipped having a child and on to grand children.

    Oh and almost forgot! Coolness factor? Lol..
    I bet you only counted the victory pose
    Xie Shan: *hyper beam* phew~
    *cuddles weapon and sleep*
    Zong Ru: *explosion* haa.. *meditate*
    Wei Sheng: tch.. disappointing.. *erase enemy from existence*

    1. pretty much going to agree with author here, the cleanup of a few dussin ningmai actually doesn’t deserve more than a single paragraph, even though he didn’t give them even that…

      now, the escape of the dessert and metropolis could have been slightly more fleshed out…

    2. I think that must be why they spoiled her so much. Their son/nephew is dead so they only have one descendant and doesn’t have hope of getting any more.

  13. At first I used to ignore the translator ramblings…but now that I started reading em… they’re good(humourous actually)!!
    Keep up the good work disciple.
    Thanks for the chapter!!

  14. Looks liks Ge profitedin Spells this time with Wood, Water & Fire Spells of high level. Including the Earth element spell he got, he just needs a Gold/Metal element spell to complete the set. After learning them, he may want to upgrade his farmer medal and sword formation scripture.

    1. not sure what gains he would get from having a higher ranked farming medal. Isn’t that more useful for when you are seeking to get employed by others?

      I guess it could also work as a recruitment tool, “We have the best ling grains, our daren even has a gold farming medal”

      but he really isn’t looking for any more recruits, and even if he did, the whole “we offer free golden crow fire, mystical power up tattoos and a complimentary fifth grade sword” ought to be more than enough…

      1. For Jingshi, Shang Wei Ming previously mentioned that the prices of commodities have risen greatly thanks to an increased population. Since they’re going to be here for a while and Lil’ Turtle can have 5th-grade ling fields if they get the right soil, it’ll be a waste not to upgrade since his current medal is for 3rd-grade ling fields. Also to show off, “I am a ningmai ling plant farmer and can still kill Jindan.”

      2. he doesn’t need the medal to sell produce, he will just get payed due to quality anyways.

        I mean, sure, get the dirt, and do the farming, but is there really any need to get the medal? He the head of the company, no one needs to see his diploma anymore.

        soo the only real reason is to show of, and he has never been to concerned about doing that. it has always been more of a side effect of not caring what people think about him.

      3. Right, Ge doesn’t show off unlike Silly Bird. But it is still more profitable to upgrade his medal due to branding, a higher level farmer can charge more than a basic level farmer even when selling grains of equal quality thanks to the name of the brand.

  15. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiofDoom! I mean someone had to protect Gongsun Cha and Zuo Mo is also the big boss. They have to prove themselves worthy of his attention by fighting the mini-bosses first right?

  16. going back to reread… AAAAND not one of us reacted to the cloud silk being produced here. I guess we will have to wait to see if it’s a formation, ling beast, ling farming, a formation or just a natural occurrence on the island.

    no mather what, i hope they can transplant some of what is making it into little black turtle, the girl needs to be more than self sustainable…

    1. I hope Golden Crow Camp uses that Miniature Mountain Talisman as a reference to carve formations on the entire island so that they can take it with them when they pack up and leave this Jie.

  17. There is a typo, “was had”
    I forgot where I saw it. Heh. SO the island renovation arc will finally start ei.

  18. Looking at the island from the outside, there were layers of clouds blocking their view and nothing of the island could be seen. But looking from the island out, nothing was covered.

    Right, Ge can now safely set up another Golden Crow Formation to replenish stock without fear of the technique being stolen. It’s a Sellers Market and Xu Ling Sect will likely seek an exclusive contract for it.

  19. I would have thought 6 Jindan fighting to the death might have caused a bit more of a commotion.

  20. I dont like the new layout of the site.
    It has become EVEN MORE TEDIOUS to go to the next chapter.
    You have made things WORSE…
    Dear Friends, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack

  21. Not gonna lie? Zuo Mo had a pretty high coolness factor in how he insta ended that kid. Yeah she was tons weaker but c’mon, it was cool. A quick *snap CRACK* and the battle was begun. Truly a masterpiece.

  22. Just what kind of wicked debauchery produced 1 granddaughter out of 3 grandfathers

  23. Disliking how he thinks few hundred (docking fees) & now few tens of thousands is a lot. Sure… He is probably low on jingshi since they haven’t actually mined any since little mountain jie. But!!

    They did get whole bunch of loot from flower women alliance + tons of gold sand (or should of). I mean he had 90,000 jingshi before when he was zhuji. I imagine the colossal amount of things he picked up is worth 10s or 100s of millions converted into 3rd grade. After all a semi 4th grade ring cost him, what? 100 4th grade or 50k 3rd converted.

Tell me something
