This chapter has been brought to you by me, and WanderingGummiOfDoom.


Chapter Five Hundred and Forty Four – Dong Zi’s Choice

Jiang Zhe sighed lightly and an expression of conflict appeared on his face.

On the battlefield below him, the mo were fighting a losing battle. There were mo who continuously fearlessly charged in suicide attacks but in facing a completed battle formation, they were like moths charging into a fire.

Jiang Zhe hadn’t expected the fighting to be so violent. Even if he was used to great spectacles, he was still shocked at this sight. He couldn’t help but feel a thread of respect towards those crazed mo. Without any doubt, this was an outstanding battalion!

The respect did not cause Jiang Zhe to be soft-hearted. He spoke softly as he commanded, “Central formation, feign a withdraw. Flanks, charge forward in a cross.”

The mo discovered that the enemy in front of them had suddenly retreated. They were instantly overjoyed. Was the other unable to withstand their charge any longer? At this time, a battalion suddenly charged in front of the right flank with lightning speed!

The mo who had just relaxed mentally were stunned by the fierce charge. Like a knife through butter, this battalion charged through their ranks.

The formation of the mo was cleaved apart!

The morale that had just rose up instantly sank. What no one noticed was that another battalion had snuck behind their rear.

The panicked mo were almost pierced through in an instant by the second charge.

From the sky, the two battalions cut a perfect cross through the mo.

“They are finished.” The woman next to Jiang Zhe stretched lazily as her voluptuous and mature body drew out an attractive curve with this motion. Several of the personal guards around them swallowed. Facing such a person, even dhyana xiu would not be unaffected.

Jiang Zhe was silent, his long and snowy-white hair blown into the air by the wind. His brow was slender and warm, his body tall, and upright like jade, standing in the air above the fighting. He would always unconsciously attract everyone’s gaze, especially his  calm and deep eyes, clear without any impurity. Any person that met his stare would be unconsciously attracted.

As one of the most accomplished representatives of Xuan Kong Temple’s present generation , no matter where he went, he would attract stares. In Xuan Kong Realm, his reputation and fame surpassed even those great dhyana xiu that had been famed for many years. In the minds of young dhyana xiu, the name Jiang Zhe seemed to hold a magical power.

In Xuan Kong Realm, there was only one person that could rival him, his Shixiong, Nangong Qing Lian.

Unlike Jiang Zhe who was a battle general, Nangong Qin Lian was a pure dhyana xiu. One literary and one martial, but both were outstanding.

“Is there any news of Bie Han?” Jiang Zhe stared off into the distance, his thoughts unknown.

“Not yet. What is it? You miss him?” The female raised an eyebrow with a teasing expression on her face. This beautiful and moving woman was Jiang Zhe’s Shijie, Feng Yue, and also his second-in-command.

There was a mole at the corner of Feng Yue’s mouth. It did not detract from her beauty and against the contrast of her bright red lips, it was extremely seductive.

“I’m thinking if it is Bie Han leading the other side … …” Jiang Zhe was not affected by Feng Yue at all and said lightly.

“You can’t do it? Or you are worried you would lose?” Feng Yue said heartlessly, “Did you guys in the past, en-hm, have some special feelings?”

Feng Yue specially emphasized “special.”

Jiang Zhe was used to Feng Yue Shixiong’s teasing style since a long time ago. He wasn’t angry and then he smiled slightly. “Now that you say this, I’m feeling anticipation about fighting against him.”

“I just don’t know why the sect leader had taken him in. I didn’t like him, since the first time I met him. His eyes are too vicious, like a wild beast.”

“What about Cloud Sea Jie?” Jiang Zhe deflected the topic.

“Ha, Ding Zhen Shishu’s status in the temple isn’t high enough, he died for nothing. Hmph, if those other shishu died, would the temple be as indifferent to the situation as they are now?” Feng Yue’s brow scrunched as an angry expression rose on her face and her tone became less courteous.

Jiang Zhe coughed lightly. “Originally, Bie Han had been sent to deal with it, but now that Bie Han has betrayed us, and the situation is so chaotic, the temple … …”

“You don’t have to defend those old people. Let’s put the ugly stuff first. If you are going to become like them in the future, this sis will go play by herself then.” Feng Yue raised an eyebrow, her tone filled with nonchalance.

Jiang Zhe gave a grimace. He didn’t know what to do with Feng Yue Shijie.

“After your defensive line stabilizes, I will go take revenge for Ding Zheng Shishu! If you won’t go, I will!” Feng Yue suddenly said.

Jiang Zhe who had appeared calm until now suddenly had a dark expression. “Nonsense!”

“Ding Zhen Shishu had mentored me in the past. I have to repay him,” Feng Yue said serenely.

Jiang Zhe sighed as well and became silent.




Ka Zhuo looked with intoxication at the matrix awakening needle in his hand. He continuously caressed it and couldn’t stop touching it.

The new matrix awakening needle was completely black and the blood red mo matrix spread over its surface like a spider-web and glimmered eerily.

“Alright, alright, stop looking.” Zuo Mo understood Ka Zhuo’s feelings but after Ka Zhuo had laughed dumbly like this for a whole morning, he finally could not bear it any longer.

“Yes yes yes, Teacher.” Ka Zhuo seemed to wake up and carefully put away the matrix awakening needle.

Uncle An Ya was unable to believe that Zup Mo had suddenly became Ka Zhuo’s teacher but after listening to Zuo Mo’s speech about geniuses Uncle An Ya had been mentally spun round and round, he managed to believe it.

However, the side effect of this was that Dong Zi and the others did not dare to treat Zuo Mo like they used to. In front of Zuo Mo, they became constrained and careful. They had to maintain their respect towards the matrix awakening masters. Every youth had been told this repeatedly.

And no one else laughed at A Gui carrying Zuo Mo in a princess carry. People suddenly realized, no wonder A Zuo was so strong, he wasn’t a normal mo.

In order to make his matrix awakening master identity more plausible, Zuo Mo started to study the topic of matrix awakening masters seriously. Zuo Mo was skilled in mo matrixes, forging, and seal formations. He managed to understand the craft without expending great effort.

Awakening matrixes was not content of a profound level, and for Zuo Mo, a freak who had seen many high level mo matrixes, if he understood, his understanding of matrix awakening far surpassed the great majority of matrix awakening masters.

Ka Zhuo was filled with respect. The more he was in contact with Teacher, the more he discovered just how vast his Teacher’s knowledge was.

This caused Ka Zhuo to faithfully do whatever Zuo Mo instructed.

Having a matrix awakening needle again, Ka Zhuo could awaken Dong Zi’s matrix.

Dong Zi who had waited for a long time was very excited and ran over instantly. The matrix awakening had attracted large numbers of Shattered Stone Town residents. Dong Zi was the most talented youth in this group and most people hoped that Shattered Stone Town could produce a true expert.

Ka Zhuo made a detailed examination of Dong Zi. Everyone stopped breathing in fear of disturbing Ka Zhuo.

Zuo Mo was lying in A Gui’s arms and saw the entire process. He understood.

Ka Zhuo was going to start awakening the matrix when Zuo Mo suddenly spoke, “Wait.”

Ka Zhuo instantly stopped moving and respectfully came next to Zuo Mo to ask, “Teacher, what orders do you have?”

The mo that were watching in the surroundings shifted slightly.

Even though they had accepted the reality that Zuo Mo had become Ka Zhuo’s teacher, when Ka Zhuo called him this in public, it was still caused a strong reaction. Zuo Mo’s age was about the same as Dong Zi and the other’s, yet this youth had become Ka Zhuo’s teacher. Ka Zhou did not reside in Shattered Stone Town but he was famed in Shattered Stone Town.

Dong Zi’s talent was really pretty good. According to Wei’s observations, Dong Zi should have Alpine Gorilla Blood. Pure Alpine Gorillas were natural warriors with great strength, speed, and bravery.

Zuo Mo had watched Ka Zhou’s inspection. He had confirmed that there were remnants of Alpine Gorilla matrix on Dong Zi’s body and Wei’s guess was proven.

When Zuo Mo had been studying the profession of a matrix awakening master, he found in the last few days that matrix awakening was similar to the matrixes that he had engraved on Lei Peng and the others. However, the mo were skilled in physical power so they used mo matrixes while xiuzhe used ling power so they used seal formations.

After confirming that Dong Zi had remnants of an Alpine Gorilla matrix on his body, Zuo Mo had a daring idea—could he complete Dong Zi’s Alpine Gorilla matrix?

Matrix awakening masters could awaken the mo matrix but that was only bringing out the hidden mo matrix. It was only a minor adjustment and did not repair the mo matrix.

However, to Zuo Mo who had engraved formations before, this idea was daring but was rational.

Zuo Mo was not completely confident and he decided to let Dong Zi make the final decision.

Calling Dong Zi, his parents, Uncle An Ya into the room, Zuo Mo told them his thoughts.

Everyone was stunned. When they heard that Dong Zi had the bloodline of the Alpine Gorilla mo, their faces became disbelieving. Zuo Mo noticed that Dong Zi’s gaze showed yearning and excitement.

Ka Zhuo felt that his mind could not fully grasp the concept. Repair the mo matrix? Ka Zhuo gaped. A long time later, he recovered and his expression suddenly became excited. Having been a matrix awakening master for a long time, Ka Zhuo knew what it mean if this daring idea could be realized.

“A Zuo, you cannot joke about this,” Uncle An Ya’s tone was grave, “how confident are you?”

“Three tenths,” Zuo Mo replied with a conservative guess. After having told them this, he realized the risk and felt regret. He hoped that no harm would befall Dong Zi. In this period of time, Dong Zi had been very good to him.

Dong Zi and his parents started discussing in low voices. They quickly made the decision.

Dong Zi inhaled deeply. “A Zuo, I am willing to try this!”

“It is very dangerous, your chance of death is very high,” Zuo Mo who now deeply regretted bring this up had started to urge him to reconsider.

“I’m not afraid!” Dong Zi said boldly, “I want to become more powerful, this way, we won’t be bullied.”

At this time, Dong Zi’s father also spoke. He said respectfully, “Mister Zuo, please give Dong Zi this chance! Our family, our Shattered Stone Town needs this chance.”

Uncle An Ya sighed deeply and then suddenly looked much older.

Zuo Mo knew that there probably was something going on. He saw that they were extremely resolute and even Uncle An Ya didn’t object so after some thought, he agreed, “Alright! But I need several days to prepare.”

Including Zuo Mo, no one had considered what kind of legend their decision would create!

  1. This is why I love World of Cultivation, ZM is not bogged down by common beliefs and what should / should not, or can / cannot be done, and only pursues perfection. I really have a hard time figuring out if it’s my top 3 story, top 2 or top 1 as they’re all so close to one another.

    1. I just want the names of the other two candidates on that list of stories lol. Also thanks for the chapter.

      1. Mine are: World of Cultivation, Mother of Learning, Way of Choices (Ze Tian Ji)

      2. Oooh! More stories I haven’t heard of. If they are close to WoC in your estimation, I’ll have to check them out right away!

      3. Where do you read Mother of Learning? When I did a search for it on NU it only came up with The Tang Dynasty’s Female Forensic Doctor. (this is for doctorevil64, but it doesn’t let me reply)

      4. I love Mother of Learning too!
        It was awesome, it need printed books!! XD
        As for Ze Tian Ji, hmm. One more story in my reading list then.

        Have you guys tried Unique Legend?
        It have some similar feeling as WoC.
        The characters have personalities, vast world building and mc have mysterious origins.
        It’s just…the mc is not very strong, so don’t get your hopes up. He also didn’t create an army but befriend many strange people instead

  2. it’s very hard to wait argggh i wish there are several releases again hahahha

    1. just follow me, dont read new updates for 2-3 weeks and then binge read the novel, make you feel better. Of course after your last chapter stock, you also will scream for more releases. haha

  3. Somehow I think everybody expected this to happen XD
    Cant wait for the results ^^

    Thanks for the translation!

  4. ah, classic Ge. faking that he is an expert so expertly that he publishes actual revolutionary groundbreaking research papers just so no one can see through his disguise…

      1. say what you want about Ge, but his disguises are f**ing solid.

        “right, going undercover in Mo territory. better make a quick disguise”

        “so, now i have social security number, a Mo university degree, proof of nobility, proof of my old linage, a work history stretching back 10 years, proof that i am the president of a mo company with several hundred mo employees, international acclaim in mo research circles as well as proof of being head author on multiple cutting edge papers. should be able to pass for a mo at a casual glance now. hopefully no one will check my history to close, or i might be revealed.”

  5. Wonder what he’s going to do when he can only move his hand.

    Also don’t forget to change the title of the previous chapter. It’s still repeating the one before it.

    1. Ge disappears, and hi army immediately sets of after him. Ge immediately tells them where he is. By the time they manage to catch up, Ge has made a cultural revolution and formed yet another army, by semi accident. again.

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

    Ka Zhou: “Dr. Zuo, the patient is in the operating table. The patient’s family has also already signed the no suing contract”
    ZM: “wait, i havent finished inspecting the last batch of bug poop yet.. also i still cant move my body, so let’s postpone it a few day.. until i can tell how much jingshi i can get for selling this poop*cough* i mean until i can move freely.. “

  7. It occurs to me that if Zuo Mo fails to fix himself, he’ll explode and kill everyone in the village, and yet, he hasn’t warned them or made any preparations to protect them. I know it’ll never matter since he’ll definitely fix himself, but still.

    Why do I get this old Western feeling from Zuo Mo’s current situation? Something about it just screams “Man with no Name,” or that one episode of Avatar with Zuko.

    After he succeeds, I wonder if the other villagers will start approaching him to have their matrices repaired.

    1. Nah he’ll play the mysterious master lost to the wind. His “student” on the other is gonna become super-grade hot sh*t in every town around. Towns will start rejecting every mo awakener that ZM’s student lol.

  8. “Ka Zhuo looked with intoxication at the matrix awakening needle in his hand. He continuously caressed it and couldn’t stop touching it.

    “Alright, alright, stop looking.” Zuo Mo understood Ka Zhuo’s feelings but after Ka Zhuo had laughed dumbly like this for a whole morning, he finally could not bear it any longer.”

    – Like Teacher, like student 😀
    – And, yes Zuo Mo, I don’t doubt it for one second that you understand his feelings, since you both have a thing for inanimate objects (like stone walls, shen trees, jingshi…and awakening needles).
    – On a second thought: does A Gui know? She might have something to say about your fetishes.

    1. How’d ZM get Ka Zhuo a new needle? I thought he said wait a few days for reinforcements to arrive. Was he able to recover ling power and open his storage bags?

    1. Come now legends are unprofitable business. Ge is still trying to find ways to regulary collect rent from the two legends living inside him. That’s proof legends are bad business lol.

  9. Thanks for the chapter.
    Also: ‘ “I’m not afraid!” Dong Zi said boldly, “I want to become more powerful, this way, we won’t be bullied.” ‘ That’s some good info right there. Note that he said “we”. It’s a big deal to everyone in the room, possibly the whole town. Could be a hint about the town’s history, what the townspeople’s concerns are, and what the social hierarchy for small towns in the middle of backwater/countryside Mo Jies is like.

  10. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! If only they knew Zuo Mo’s own physique was created in a similar fashion.

  11. A site called wuxiadream has started translating this and other stories that are already getting translated and I wanted to let you know, because I don’t think they contacted you guys prior to this. Not to forget thanks for the chapter, you guys are great.

      1. It is a retranslation, just wanted to make sure that you guys know about it and warn that their conduct on other tranlators sites is extremely horrible, for example they put spoiler and links to their own translation on bluesilvertranslations and insult the translator and readers, happy that it isn’t the case here.

      2. I guess you would have to call it a retranslation since it is into English, but the quality is quite poor. It seems they are focusing on quantity over quality. I read some of DD there after seeing their posts on bluesilver (I admit, I was curious about what is happening next in the story 🙁 ). I would compare it to one step above machine translation. I hope they don’t try advertising in your comments section because they have a mob that takes over comment sections and are pretty insulting. The owner(?) of the site then comes in to apologize – and advertises more.

        I don’t know the rules on your side of things, but it looks like they aren’t playing by them.

  12. Poor Dong Zi has to gamble his life for the sake of his village…70% chance of failure
