Chapter Five Hundred and Seven First Make Up
When Zuo Mo just returned to Turtle Island from the Greenwood Secret Realm, the Sun Shen Temple collapsed like rotten wood. It created a giant cloud of dust. Yet before the dust settled, burning flames erupted out of the depths of the earth and swallowed the entire shen temple.
The people watching exclaimed in shock.
Shen Wu Hai felt his hand hurt and instantly woke.
Fire? His vision was filled with red. A sea of fire? Why was he in a sea of fire?
He flew into the air clueless. He instinctively escape this sea of fire. He channeled his ling power and flew into the sky.
Midair, he felt his body cool which caused his mind to clear up.
His body felt cool … … it was a very strange feeling … …
At this time, woosh, woosh, woosh, figures shot out of the shen temple debris. A dozen shadows appeared next to him.
These people all swayed and their expressions were slightly bewildered.
Shen Wu Hai was stunned where he stood. His expression became strange. Everywhere he looked, he saw white naked flesh. These people were not clothed, not even an inch of cloth.
Wait, that cool feeling … …
Shen Wu Hai’s face turned ashen as he looked down. What entered his field of view was a patch of smooth white skin. His naked body was completely exposed in the air.
His head rang.
The crowd of spectators were deathly silent. Shen Wu Hai swept across them out of the corner of his eyes and could clearly see the shock on their faces.
Countless gazes gathered on his bare-naked body … … it felt cool … ..
Laughter came like a tide.
A mouthful of blood burst out of his throat. His figure wavered and he dropped down towards the sea of fire.
Li Shu’s weak voice came from afar and became blurry in Shen Wu Hai’s consciousness.
Zuo Mo was inspecting his spoils of war.
The richness of the harvest this time surpassed his expectations. His grin almost reached his ears. Now that the shen temple was swallowed by fire, it had erased all the traces leading to him. No one would know that the masked person was him.
But before this, there was much work to be done.
Like the mountain of talismans piled up in front of him inside a formation.
Among these talismans, many had imprints left behind. Zuo Mo had made a special formation to block the imprint. If he could not erase the imprints, then these talismans had to be hidden. Otherwise, he would just be waiting for the other people to come find him.
Zuo Mo knew very well just how powerful the people he had offended this time were.
But clearing out the imprint was not a difficult task for Zuo Mo. He had the Great Day Banded Flame, the Greenvine Mystical Water, shen power, these could all erase the imprints.
What he was struggling with was another problem—how to prevent others from finding him.
Supposedly, Tian Huan had many xiuzhe skilled in divination. These people could peek at fate. Tian Huan definitely would not swallow their anger at having such a major loss. Tian Huan would even take revenge more cruelly to tell other people what the outcome of being enemies with Tian Huan was.
Zuo Mo didn’t want to be the chicken that was killed to scare the monkeys. He needed to hide his tracks to prevent any future problems.
Fortunately, he had Pu Yao.
“Disrupt divination?” Pu Yao rubbed his chin. The eye that was exposed slightly narrowed. The lips that were as thin as blades slowly curved like the gleam of a blade.
Zuo Mo nodded. “Yes, yes.”
Pu Yao suddenly turned to ask Wei, “What methods do you have?”
Wei glanced at Zuo Mo. “Sacrificial offerings, but it needs at least yuanying level souls.”
This wasn’t a field Wei was skilled in.
“Yuanying level souls?” Zuo Mo asked hesitantly. He was suspicious that there was a problem with his ears.
“Yes,” Wei replied seriously, “I only know this one method.”
Zuo Mo unhesitatingly turned to look at Pu Yao. Was he joking, yuanying level souls, even ten of him could not kill a yuanying.
Pu Yao smiled. Zuo Mo suddenly had a bad feeling.
“Very good, I like business deals that only has one supplier. I want a good price.” Pu Yao’s evil and sharp smile caused Zuo Mo to shudder.
A good price … …
Zuo Mo said tragically, “State your price!”
“You got pretty good things this time, oh, those bones, pity … …” Pu Yao was full of regret in his words.
Zuo Mo’s heart suddenly jumped. He knew that Pu Yao was speaking of the bones he found in the Burning Shen Realm. He secretly noted it down. So these bones were the best things out of what he got this time! Did this guy want the ink jade bones? Zuo Mo’s heart was insecure but when he heard Pu Yao say “pity,” his heart eased slightly.
However, Pu Yao did not continue after “pity.” His tone changed, “All of the Sun Fruits, and one hundred Sun Seeds.”
Pu Yao looked smilingly at Zuo Mo.
His heart just relaxing, Zuo Mo inhaled sharply and his heart jerked. Pu Yao’s cut was really deep this time! It was fine for the Sun Fruits, but those one hundred Sun Seeds were extraordinary in value. Zuo Mo had gotten a good number of Sun Seeds but after this one hundred was paid, then the total amount would shrink greatly.
But Zuo Mo knew that he could not give Pu Yao a chance to give another price, otherwise … …
Zuo Mo gritted his teeth and nodded heard, “Agreed!”
“Refreshing!” Pu Yao stood but no emotion could be seen on his handsome face. He threw a ball of light at Zuo Mo. “Take it.”
Zuo Mo took the ball of light, and countless unfamiliar methods flowed into his mind.
He hurriedly left the sea of consciousness and started to study it. At this time, he didn’t dare to waste one moment. This was a race against time. The earlier he finished his defenses, the earlier he would escape the danger. If he was late, then no rescue efforts would help.
In the sea of consciousness, Wei suddenly smiled warmly. “Your negotiation was done well. It seems that I need to learn from you.”
“You are right.” Pu Yao blinked his bloody pupil with an open expression. There wasn’t any evilness on his face.
The two exchanged a look and then disappeared separately.
Wasteland Beast Chessboard.
Nan Yue was furiously cultivating. Her eyes were tightly closed, her expression focused i her hands were placed together as though she was holding an invisible bow. Her [South Sky Arrow Art] had progressed quickly. Her rate of improvement was akin to travelling a thousand li in a day.
The scenery around her constantly changed, and her hands changed positions as well. However, there seemed to be a faint connection between her hands throughout.
Her consciousness was extremely unique and was like invisible water ripples. When the water ripples encountered enemies, they would quickly return with information about the other.
The surrounding scenery that changed was both real and fake.
Nan Yue needed to find the true target hidden among these real and fake yao arts.
It was not the first time she had trained like this. In reality, she was trapped in this illusion almost every day.
Ever since they had been introduced to Teacher Pu for instruction, they would encounter all kinds of strange training. Many people complained. Teacher Pu’s training was ever changing but what made people complain was that each type of training was extremely difficult. Teacher Pu’s temper was also fickle. If they did not complete the training, their outcome would be very bad. Many people couldn’t help but feel anger.
But Nan Yue did not feel any rage.
Teacher Pu was far stronger than any expert she had ever seen. Compared to Teacher Wei, the teachers at the yao art houses were thousands of miles behind. Every cultivation illusion here had been created by Teacher Pu with a wave of the hand. The uncanny yao arts caused everyone to gape in shock.
With this kind of famed teacher guiding them, what else could they hope for?
Nan Yue did not slack off and became even more diligent. She knew just how rare this chance was!
She wasn’t the only one. Ming Jue Zi, Cang Ze, and the others all knew this and buried their heads in cultivation in fear of missing this chance. The elders of the Grey Clan also strictly supervised the members of the Grey Clan. Those that did not work hard on their cultivation were disciplined with the clan law.
Selecting at the Wasteland Beast Chessboard as the cultivation area was done out of helplessness. Thankfully, the Wasteland Beast Chessboard was endless. No one noticed the corner they occupied. The number of people that could see through Pu Yao’s illusory arts were pitifully few and they would not appear in the Wasteland Beast Chessboard.
Just like usual, Pu Yao appeared in the Wasteland Beast Chessboard.
“Such terrible skill!” He looked down at the yao that were cultivating. His brow furrowed and he was dissatisfied.
He had enough qualifications to give this judgment. When he thought about this, he couldn’t help but think of Guard Camp and his mood worsened. Guard Camp wasn’t highly skilled in his eyes, but compared to these greenhorns, they were much better.
Right now, Guard Camp was in Wei’s hand. Having been tricked, Pu Yao naturally could not accept this so he put his ideas onto Nan Yue and the others. Wei could not enter the Ten Finger Prison so he could not see whatever Pu Yao did here.
Thinking like this, Pu Yao’s mood instantly became slightly better.
But when he saw these clumsily people practicing, what were extremely basic yao arts in his eyes, his good mood instantly evaporated.
Pu Yao had been planning to use these guys to form another camp so he had initially trained them in battle formations. However, he quickly found that these people were extremely lacking in skills. With such terrible strength, no matter how much they trained battle formations, they could not catch up to Guard Camp.
So he could only personally teach them yao arts.
Even though the improvement of Nan Yue and the others was considerable, to Pu Yao who lacked patience, this kind of progression was not enough.
He hadn’t expected Zuo Mo to be able to enter the Sun Shen Temple and to obtain so many treasures. He instantly locked on.
Zuo Mo coincidentally came to ask for help so he had gotten his hands on a lot of Sun Fruits and Sun Seeds.
The first moment he saw the Sun Fruits and Sun Seeds, Pu Yao’s heart had moved. He recognized these two treasures. They were like the golden souls, and could be taken into the Ten Finger Prison.
“It is really a waste to use them on you lot.”
Pu Yao murmured to himself as the Sun Fruits and Sun Seeds in his hand flashed with an enchanting light.

Thanks for the chapter!
Thank you for the chapter!
Poor Pu Yao.
Poor Zuo Mo, he just got scalped of a potential forest of Divine Sun Trees.
He has more seeds, though.
Actually Pu was not that greedy or Fang Xiang just sucks at maths since the tree produces around 10 fruits at a time and it takes 50 years to produce a fruit. Then even if it has been 10000 years he should still have gotten 2000 seeds so Pu only taking 100 leaves many for Zou Mo and probably has double since it is hinted that the downfall of the sun tribe happened 20000-25000 years ago. Though my guess is the author is just bad with numbers and didn’t calculate it well enough to be painful for Zou Mo to be honest Pu Yao could have asked for 1000 seeds and it still leaves Zou Mo with a few times that number.
oppps ment fruit takes 10 years and seeds take 50 years
lol, yeah. Where’s FDR when you need him? 😉
Its good to finally know what’s going on with the yao. I do wonder if they’re putting any effort into finding the other descendants though.
I seriously hate Pu as a character.
I did to in the beginning because Zuo Mo couldn’t fight back. Know I only hate him as a person, as a character he’s pretty entertaining.
hmm, weird.. why? he is very interesting character..
He may be interesting, but he’s an asshole.
A lot of assholes are interesting. Lil’ Miss is an asshole. Meng Hao is an asshole.
Keep firing assholes!!!
@videriant, I wasn’t saying because he’s an asshole he is uninteresting. I was stating the facts that he is interesting, but also an asshole.
On a side note, Meng Hao became uninteresting when he became a inconsistent Mary Sue.
All I was saying is that you haven’t given any explanation for why you hate him other then “he’s an asshole” which is vague and you yourself admit isn’t an explanation.
Agree with you on Meng Hao though. The situations are still readable but Meng Hao as a character has taken a drop. The parrot and meat jelly fell two hundred chapters ago.
Why? He just helped those terribly untalented yaos and given them those sun seeds. I think he is quite a tsundere.
Thank you for the chapter!
Thanks for the new chapter!
haven’t laughed like that for a while
“A mouthful of blood burst out of his throat. His figure wavered and he dropped down towards the sea of fire.”
I really hope he didn’t die from this. When a minor meaningless pitiful NPC died from emotional shock it could be taken as a joke.
But this guy is a major antagonist a whole realm above the MC
I suspect that his student calling out to him caught and saved him increasing his embarrassment.
This kind of guy wont die even if you kill him, so dont worry XD
But it would be quite funny if he really died from that XD
More importantly, did anyone notice yesterday his undies amounted to bill pill undies when they were stolen yesterday?
blue* pill undies. Stupid autocorrect
Pu Yao would die to if Zuo Mo is caught. Why did the author set this trade up as an extortion?
time Zou Mo had no time. The other two are worried but they are not nearly as anxious as Zou Mo.
The other bit is that he is using the items to strengthen there group in a round about way anyhow.
Zuo Mo doesn’t know what hes doing with those items. They should be just as scared to unless they know something about divination he doesn’t. Once Tian Huan finds out anything about him the chances of them getting caught skyrockets. What if Zuo Mo held out and Tian Huan finds something? Are getting these items this way worth the potential risks? To be clear I’m not against him getting the items especially since he his making the yao stronger. It’s just that extorting them for his ego’s sake could have caused unnecessary problems. It would have made since (and still be funny) if he had guilt tripped him like he did when he was over Guard Camp.
Isn’t this how things usually goes? Every time Ge gets his hands on good things, Pu moves to suck him dry for his own agenda.
That’s how it used to be when Zuo Mo was to weak to do anything about it. Now, thankfully, he can tell Pu to go fuck himself.
raizin, Pu Yao is at least at the peak of yuanyin (or the yao equivalent). He’s probably a whole tier above that. On top of that he’s legendary for his encyclopaedic knowledge of techniques – which is the one thing that isn’t diminished by being a ghost. Not even Zuo Mo’s plot armour could protect him if he picked a fight over some mere 6th grade materials.
He’s sky yao, top level of cultivation possible for yao. Yuanying is like the third tier of power from the top.
Aantia, You noticed how he doesn’t just walk all over Zuo Mo anymore? He used to just take his stuff without asking or just toss what ever he wanted at him regardless if he could make use of it or not. I’m not saying Zuo Mo can take him in a fight, but he’s definitely a threat to Pu now for many reasons:he can’t leave his body one thing, he’s shown his worth as student, Wei is there now, and most of all he isn’t the weak little kid he was when Pu found him. He has troops, resources, shen power, and no reservations about working with yaomo which make him a really good host. The biggest thing is he holds Pu’s weak point: his teachers legacy. Zuo Mo could refuse to learn anything else from him or promise not pass it down if he crosses him. Pu can’t find geniuses like him easily so there’s no way he would push him to far.
This is just their normal dealings now that Zuo Mo is strong enough to not be completely walked over.
Zuo Mo could threaten mutually assured destruction, sure, but why do that when you can just maintain a good relationship?
By having an exchange agreement he can continue to get things, even if they cost a lot.
If he forces the matter they could very well just say no, and then he’d be up shit creek without a paddle. He’s not strong enough to force information from them in any reasonable timeframe, and it’s likely that if it came down to that Pu or Wei could shatter his mind and die anyway.
Having a relationship based on good things is way superior at this point in time (and I think, in general).
Why would they say no when they would be in trouble too? Why would they shatter his mind when he is the only person that can continue their legacy? How would the relationship worsen if Pu just said he wanted items to strengthen the yao?
Demanding a large portion of items you had no hand in getting; to trade for something that will also save your neck, doesn’t sound like maintaining a good relationship. I don’t see anything wrong with him getting the items, it just didn’t make any sense how he did it. The sun items are rare and valuable and Pu demands a large portion with no explanation. Zuo Mo may not be strong enough to force information, but he does have the things I mentioned as leverage now. I didn’t like how the author just has Zuo Mo cave becaue “Ge’s like is important”. There’s no way Pu let him get into serious danger so why did he think he couldn’t get a better deal?
I’m getting a little fed up with authors running jokes into the ground in lieu of actual character development. A while back it talked about how Zuo Mo was figuring Pu out and started getting the better of him deals. Now it’s like we are back to square one because lol repeating the same thing is funny. The back and forth between them would have been twice as interesting if Zuo Mo actually started using his advantages while fleecing Pu for all he had. Thus showing how much on an influence Pu had on him which would give the feeling of characters changing. It happened a little when he played Wei and Pu against each other, but now they’ve teamed up against him.
Because zuo mo is actually very indulgent towards these old people. They are basically with him 24/7, some complex feelings always develop in such close proximity.
and that my friends is how this story goes. Zou Mo gathers loot to pay the resource drain in his mind.
Do people realize that whatever pu “gets” from zuo ends up being used to help duo’s team.
They are both on the same side here.. He can be generous with his xuie subordinates but not his mentor?
I don’t even take this scalping thing as anything other than a joke. Pu could easily take what he wants without zuo knowing. Its pu showing curtsey by asking lol
ZM: “phew.. just got my salary from work..”
Pu(house wife #1): “honey, i need money to buy that new(and expensive) washing machine.. ”
Wei(house wife #3): “oh, i need some money too! i want to buy that premium brand flamethrower to kill those pesky mosquitoes at night~”
lil Pagoda: “dad, can you give me pocket money ? i want to treat everybody to that new restaurant~”
lil fire: “dad! dad! did you bring me new toys? did you? did you?”
lil black: “you didn’t forget to pay the internet bills right?* goes back to his room*
A gui(house wife #2): “…”
ZM: “…” *smiles gently*
silly bird: “..you owe me money for baby sitting all these weirdos..”
You forgot Tenth Grade & Sunshine
Tenth Grade: Dad I want funds to buy a new sword.
Sunshine: I request pocket money too.
Actually, Pu is not showing courtesy. He’s bored so extortion is how he gets his jollies.
And what Pu does with the things he extorts isn’t always beneficial since he’s frankenstein-ing he way half the time. Again, boredom.
ZM’s just been plot armor lucky to survive Pu Yao.
Pu is ZM master, he pretty much begged to become his master and yet he dosent want to teach him things that can keep him alive unless he get paid an insane amount of resources. He is way to unresonable, and sucks at being a teacher/master.
Thank you very much for this chapter!
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
*reads title* Pfff! is ZM going to crossdress?!
“His body felt cool … … it was a very strange feeling … …”
wait for it.. wait for it.. *holds grin*
Pff-hahahaha… Shen Wu Hai got traumatized by all them elephants.. *cries out of laughing too hard*
[meanwhile in Turtle island]
ZM: “are the trackers gone yet? i want them gone. and i want it gone 5 chapters ago! what do you want for it?” *in mafia boss tone*
Wei: “oh i can do it for you~ let’s use a billion jingshi Nuke! nothing can survive that!”
ZM: “No. Next!”
Pu: “i think can do it, but it depends on what you got to offer”
*Pu looks around*
Pu: “lots of nice things you got there.. that (useless) bone tho..(why is it in the expensive loot section?) pity(it ruined the expensive atmosphere.. but whatever..).. i want all of (most expensive)loot-A and 100 of (second most expensive)loot-B take it or leave it.”
ZM: “deal! just don’t touch mah bone.”
Pu: “o-kay.. here put some makeup on your face, they’ll never know it’s you!” *continues ranting on some beauty tips*
[later that day]
Pu: “Kids! daddy’s home! and i brought presents!”
Pu Yao gives the seeds.
“Teacher Pu is really kind and generous!”
Pu: “And from now on, triple the training program!”
“Teacher Pu is cruel and merciless”
Thanks for the translation!
‘ “Very good, I like business deals that only has one supplier. I want a good price.” Pu Yao’s evil and sharp smile caused Zuo Mo to shudder. ‘
– Lesson to learn: whenever Pu-chan is polite and cordial towards Wei-kun, Zuo Mo should run to opposite direction.
Ps. Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely adore Pu-chan? He’s deliciously evil.
Thanks for the chapter
It’s funny cuz Zuo Mo would have given the things gladly if he knew where they were going. I don’t know where all the Pu hate comes from. He made me angry early on when he was just stealing from ZM, but this far into things, I’ve definitely come to like him.
Have you read to the end? Does ZM ever meet up with his old Elders? It’s in the back of my head, but I don’t want it to be if he doesn’t.
Thanks for the chapter!
I know the ending which is actually why I make some of the word choice decisions. But SPOILERS! There should be some people around who have read the raws but I would like to keep it off this site so people don’t have the experience ruined if they do not want spoilers.
*nods* I don’t want spoilers or details really. Just a yes/no sort of signal… you know… wink wink if yes, furtive glance left if no… *grin* j/k I understand about the spoilers, don’t worry. I just hate having things hanging in the back of my head if they aren’t going to be realized.
Thank you for all your work. I’m so glad I’m able to enjoy this story.
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! Whoa, Pu Yao is investing pretty heavily in this little group eh. Looks like that blow from Wei really hurt his ego haha.
A story about economics.
Oh? Supply and demand?
No, that’s econmics 101. This is advanced economics. Demand and demand.
Thank you for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter.
For all the talk about Zuo Mo being good at bargaining, he just accepted like that… He should have kept at least half the fruits (or at least ONE), they are obviously a good way to boost his power quickly. Let’s not forget he’s still in ningmai…
Of course he still has the tree but he’ll need quite a bit of time to get more fruits.
Oh and a pretty good bargaining point would have been : I die you die, so you better give that technique…
Pu had dreams…
Now he only has Zuo Mo…
Thank you for the chapter
I just hope Zuo Mo’s cash in after cleaning the loots would be worth the trade of seeds and fruits.
Pfff, thanks for the chapter!
Daww, Pu acting like he’s greedy but actually he’s helping these little yao ^_^
