Chapter Five Hundred and Ninety Five – Smooth Talker

Bu Heng said to the shadowed corner. “You failed.”

“The woman next to him is very powerful,” an ancient voice passed out from the pitch black corner. His voice paused slightly and then he said, “I will not act again. Both of the women beside him are very powerful!”

Bu Heng was not surprised. He said, “You are afraid.”

A moment later, the old voice in the corner said, “Yes, I am afraid.”

“Do you know why you cannot get vengeance?” Bu Heng raised an eyebrow with disdain on his face, “Because you try to attend to everything and do not dare to gamble your life to fight.”

A cold and dark killing intent tightly restrained Bu Heng. Bu Heng’s face turned pale from the killing intent but he did not retreat at all. The mocking smile on his face grew. “Just like right now. You do not dare to kill me because you are afraid of my battalion! You are afraid that my battalion will destroy your family!”

“You are weak, you cannot let go of your revenge but you are also afraid of death. You hope to break into marshal level. If you cannot enter marshal level, you will be a worm crawling in the dark, trying to scrape out a living. Marshal level? Stop dreaming! Which marshal is a weak willed man?” Bu Heng’s cold words were like a metal hammer breaking through the ice and shattering the other’s mental defenses.

A moment later, the killing intent disappeared without a trace. A tired figure walked out of the corner. The old voice carried deep exhaustion. “You are right, I cannot get to marshal level.”

“I can exact your revenge for you,” Bu Heng suddenly said.

The other was silent.

“However, in return I want your life.” Bu Heng stood up and walked away without another glance back. “When you have thought it through, come find me.”

Before Bu Heng reached the door, a hoarse voice came from behind him, “How can you exact my revenge for me?”

Bu Heng stopped and said coldly, “You forget my Heng Battalion. A battalion in the top one hundred of Hundred Savage Realm, can I not get your revenge?”

“What do you want me to do?” the voice came from behind him.

“At an appropriate time, kill him.”

“What is an appropriate time?”

“You will know when it is time.”

When he finished saying this, Bu Heng opened the door and left without a look back.




“Bu Heng left with his battalion?” Lan Tian Long was slightly shocked.

Lan Rong shrugged. “Maybe he feels that there is no hope. No matter how strong his battalion is, there is no use for it in Great Peace City. As for individual strength, he does not have anyone that can be used against Xiao Mo Ge.”

“This does not fit Bu Heng’s personality,” Lan Tian Long said as he shook his head.

“He’s left, and even took his battalion with him.” Lang Rong said unconcernedly, “What else can he do?”

“Alright, let’s not think about him further.” Lan Tian Long did not understand the situation and then threw it to one side. Suddenly, he looked with a smile at Lan Rong. “Don’t you like princess Xin? How about it? Are you unable to sleep from anticipation?”

A thread of embarrassment appeared on Lan Rong’s face but he quickly recovered. He shook his head, “She will not be attracted to me.”

Lan Tian Long became silent. He knew that his brother was right. The Lan Family had some power and the two brothers were exceptional, but in front of the ocean of suitors for the three princesses, they were not special.

He patted his brother’s shoulder and comforted, “There are opportunities everywhere. You have a better appearance than me, and you can definitely win hearts!”

The two brothers exchanged a look and then laughed.

A moment later, the two stopped. Lan Rong said with a smile, “Ha, however, they might not end up well this time. I feel that this Xiao Mo Ge is aiming for these three princesses.”

Lan Tian Long thought a moment and then said, “After you say this, I feel very similarly. He has been so flamboyant in his conduct, so high that he is almost flying. It is so coincidental. The more I think, the more I feel the same.”

“I just don’t know which princess he likes. Ha, I wonder which person will be the unlucky one!” Lan Rong had some schadenfreude. “This Xiao Mo Ge is one that does not act according to convention. Those that he targets would probably have a headache! Haha!”

Hearing this, Lan Rong couldn’t help but grin.

The departure of Bu Heng and his battalion did not cause great ripples. Everyone felt that Bu Heng did not have any ways to deal with Xiao Mo Ge. Rather than keep fighting, it was better to save face and leave.

Also, as the date of arrival of the three princesses approached, and all of Great Peace City was like a great stove that kept on receiving fuel. People’s emotions became heightened and almost all topics of discussion circled around the three princesses.




Bie Han and Fu Feng were waiting silently. Tao Xing and Shu Long were at the side.

They had come to find Zuo Mo and Shu Long had received them but refused to disturb Zuo Mo. When Bie Han heard from Shu Long that Zuo Mo was saving that Sin Battalion mo, he quieted down.

He had enough confidence.

The room door suddenly opened and Zuo Mo came out.

“Zuo Mo!” Fu Feng suddenly said.

Zuo Mo had noticed long ago that there were two unfamiliar presences at the door. When he walked out and heard this name, he clearly stopped. However, when he saw Fu Feng’s face, he was very shocked. “Fu Feng!”

The two had interacted multiple times and he had a deep impression of the other.

“How is he?” Bie Han suddenly asked.

Zuo Mo glanced at Bie Han. He did not know the person so he turned towards Fu Feng.

After Fu Feng had the confirmation that Xiao Mo Ge was Zuo Mo, he was slightly excited. When he saw Zuo Mo’s inquiring gaze, he made a quick introduction, “This is His Highness Bie Han, the Sin Battalion member that was lost is His Highness’ subordinate.”

He then explained the past events.

Zuo Mo finally realized and increasingly felt that Xuan Kong Temple was peaceful in appearance but was cruel in their bones. He instantly said in a hateful tone, “Yes! The thieving baldies of Xuan Kong Temple should die!”

When he heard that Bie Han had escaped to the mo world upon being sent to attack Cloud Sea Jie, Zuo Mo couldn’t help but roar in laughter.

Fu Feng was slightly puzzled and hurriedly asked. Zuo Mo waved his hand and did not mention that he was the master of Cloud Sea Jie.

Even though he did not receive an answer, Fu Feng’s heart relaxed. It seemed that Zuo Mo and Xuan Kong Temple were at odds. The common saying was applicable. The enemy of the enemy was a friend. Adding on their past interactions, they felt even closer.

“How is he?” Bie Han was worried about the Sin Battalion member and couldn’t help asking again.

Zuo Mo was slightly surprised. The Sin Battalion’s soul was not complete and was like a mo puppet. In the hands of Xuan Kong Temple, they were expendable. Bie Han was concerned for the Sin Battalion member who had an incomplete soul so Zuo Mo instantly had a better impression of him.

He said with a smile, “You’ll know when you go in and see.”

As he spoke, he walked into the room first. Bie Han and Fu Feng hurriedly followed after.

When they saw the Sin Battalion member standing silently as a puppet, light flashed through Bie Han’s eyes. He did not seem to move but the Sin Battalion member reappeared like a ghost behind his body.

A light came out of Bie Han’s eyes, his expression was shocked. “You erased the jinzhi?”

Zuo Mo was very proud. “The problematic jinzhi have to be removed, and I also perfected all the jinzhi. I made them into mo matrixes. This guy’s power should have risen two times over! Aren’t I strong!”

Bie Han’s face was filled with disbelief. His thoughts suddenly moved and the Sin Battalion member started to spin at increasing speed. When his figure was a blur, he was still accelerating!

The entire room was swept up in the gusts of wind. Everyone was caught up in the wind while Zuo Mo and a few others remained nailed to the ground.

Suddenly, the Sin Battalion member stopped moving!

There was no transition between extreme movement and extreme calm. It was so strange it was nauseating.

Bie Han’s eyes lit up even more. Zuo Mo’s words were not wrong at all. The power of the Sin Battalion member had increased by more than two times! If the entirety of Sin Battalion could improve like this, the battalion would be terrifying!

Bie Han suddenly bowed towards Zuo Mo. “I have something to ask!”

Zuo Mo paused and hurriedly pulled Bie Han up. “Just say it.”

“I am sincerely asking Sir to remove the jinzhi from my Sin Battalion brothers and engraving mo matrixes,” Bie Han said with a serious expression.

“How many people do you have?” Zuo Mo asked suspiciously.

“Two thousand six hundred and twenty three!” Bie Han said.

Zuo Mo’s head swelled up. He hurriedly shook his head. “No way, no way! This is going to tire me to death!”

“Please, sire, agree. No matter the conditions, I am willing to agree to them!” Bie Han said without hesitation.

When Fu Feng heard this, he knew it was bad! He had interacted with Zuo Mo before and this guy had carried the nickname of the Scalping Zombie in the past. Everywhere he passed, he had even dug up the ground for three chi. Would this guy have any reason to give up the opportunity His Highness had delivered up himself like this?

As expected, Zuo Mo who had been seriously refusing just a moment ago immediately started to rub his chin. “Hem hem, friendship and business should be separated. Look at how much energy it takes, this takes great mental effort to solve the layers of jinzhi, and also to use my novel mo matrix method. It has not just solving all weaknesses for your Sin Battalion, it is increasing their power up a level! How difficult this is! Brother Bie, you are a professional, you should definitely understand the difficulty involved in such a task!”

The pitiful Bie Han had never seen something like this before. He was instantly swept up in the speech. Even the experienced Fu Feng’s heart was beating rapidly. But he was unable to object because the initiative was in the other’s hands. He could only pray the other would not ask a too great of a price.

Zuo Mo’s spittle flew as he went on, “More than three thousand members! [1] Such a vast amount of labour! I’m the only one who can do this, I will have to do all the work from beginning to end. But who am I, Xiao Mo Ge? A general level, gold battle general, genius that caused the Shifting Star Sands, an expert ranked twentieth on the Great Peace Mo Rankings! I ask you, how can my fee be low?”

Tao Xing gaped on hearing this.

The more Bie Han heard, the more insecure he felt. He thought that Zuo Mo was right. He swallowed. “No, no! Go on, go on!”

“Yes! I believe that you who is logical and knowledgeable would understand!” Zuo Mo was very satisfied with Bie Han’s cooperation. He paused, and asked, “Do you have many mo bei?”

Bie Han shook his head and obediently answered, “Not much.”

Zuo Mo was slightly disappointed and then asked, “Do you have some rare treasures?”

Bie Han shook his head. “No!”

Zuo Mo’s face was filled with disappointment as he sighed. He said, “Look, you do not have mo bei, you do not have treasures, then you can only sell yourself. Normally, even signing away your life would be considered a cheap price but Brother Fu and I are old acquaintances, so I will give you a discount. I admire Brother Bie’s moral conduct and will give you a further discount. So my friend I will give you the best friendship discount!”

Everyone looked at Zuo Mo and waited for him to name his price.
[1] Fang Xiang changes the number here. He does it again later.

      1. More like ironic. The battalion they made to kill their enemies will kill them instead.

      2. Isn’t that pretty much what happened with the slaves that became the guard camp?

  1. only zuo mo would get the gut to said to someone when they selling themselves to him that he is giving them a discount

      1. :’c I’m tl’ing but my brain and my eyes are fried… The competition was fierce, but we had too little support (′○` ) I don’t think I’d survive another round as intense tonight.

      2. My eyes, that is. Mainly. I’ve been staring at this small screen for too many hours…

      3. It does. I’m seeing if coffee helps any. I hope it does.

      4. Haha. I actually despise coffee. What i usually do when this happens is i go to a dark room and put some cold compress on my eyes.

    1. He is the guy Zuo Mo met at the Sword xiu tournament and later again at Desolate Wood Reef (he was called Bo Feng at the time I read those chapters, but Fu Feng is the correct name).

    2. He’s a mysterious yellow-robed guy that appeared during sword test conference. He gave a complete scripture to the guy with Blood Spider.

      Later he traveled through Desolate Wood Reef with some group, and he traded with Zuo Mo at that time.

      I think his name was translated as Bo Feng back then, the translation changed recently.

  2. Even after having its jinzhi removed and mo matrix upgraded, the sin battalion mo still acts and is treated like a puppet. Just look at how Bie Han controls it like a puppet. I feel sorry for all those mo in the sin battalion and I’m not sure anymore whether Bie Han views them as comrades or just tools.

    1. Probably a bit of both as they are both Mo… That said without a functioning/complete soul how can they become independent again? Zuo Mo couldn’t restore that part from what I remember… I’m sure restoring souls is not easy nor something even Zuo Mo’s genius can’t do (After all isn’t he suffering a similar though far less severe injury that he is currently journeying for a rare treasure in the hopes of fixing? If he could magically fix this then he would likely be able to solve his issue right now…)

    1. He’s a bit too blatant. Unless you are absolutely certain you have the upper hand and total monopoly on something that the other person has to buy, this sort of approach would just put your vic-*cough* customer on guard.

      1. LOL 😀
        Yes, this is bargaining in Zuo Mo style.
        And the best part of it is that the victim can’t do anything even if they think the price is outrageous. Since most of the time:
        1) Zuo Mo is the only one who can provide them with what they need
        2) they need it so desperately and so urgently that they can’t find another supplier

  3. ‘Lan Rong said with a smile, “Ha, however, they might not end up well this time. I feel that this Xiao Mo Ge is aiming for these three princesses.”
    Lan Tian Long thought a moment and then said, “After you mention this, I feel very similarly. —”
    “I just don’t know which princess he likes. Ha, I wonder which person will be the unlucky one!” Lan Rong had some schadenfreude. ‘

    – Well, he is “targeting” them alright, but not in the way you think.

  4. ‘When he heard that Bie Han had escaped to the mo world upon being sent to attack Cloud Sea Jie, Zuo Mo couldn’t help but roar in laughter. Fu Feng was slightly puzzled and hurriedly asked. Zuo Mo waved his hand and did not mention that he was the master of Cloud Sea Jie.’

    – Zuo Mo and Lil’Miss are soooo alike in their sense of humor. They both take such a genuine pleasure in the misfortune of their enemies 😀

  5. Bie Han:“Sir, please, remove the jinzhi from my Sin Battalion brothers and engrave mo matrixes!”
    Zuo Mo waves hand reluctantly:”No,no, too much work. Way too much work…”
    Bie Han:“Please, Sir! No matter the conditions, I am willing to agree to them!”
    *Fu Feng sighs and facepalms*
    Zuo Mo:”Fufufu…ehm…Well, now that I think of it one should ALWAYS have time to help ones friends. IF the price is correct :D”

  6. “—So my friend I will give you the best friendship discount!”
    – I have a baaaaad feeling about this 😀

    1. just a litle lifetime slavery. nothing major. oh, and wouldn’t it be the best slap in the face if you went to cloud sea jie and DEFENDED it against the theiving balides

  7. I’m pretty sure zuo mo’s so called “discount” is different from what people normally know lol

    1. Yeah, since when has anything that has anything to do with Zuo Mo been “normal”?

  8. Fu Feng really should have warned him earlier, not that he would have listened.

    I wonder if he could just send them all to Cloud Sea jie and let the GCC sort them out? I’m pretty sure they could do it if he provided the method. Heck, they could probably improve on the method.

    Also wondering if he’ll ask for the guy alone, or the entire battalion, and how long of a service contract it will be.

    1. Like translator accurately said: Fu Feng was too busy “screaming inside” to warn Bie Han in time. And then…it was too late *ominous music*

      1. I guess he didn’t think things would escalate so quickly…and he wasn’t completely sure it was really Zuo Mo…Though I agree he should have briefed Bie Han just in case. Like:”Whatever you do NEVER, I repeat: NEVER promise him ANYTHING”

    2. He will send them to Cloud Sea Jie after they make the contract 😉 there is no way he would treat almost 3000 people alone XD by the time he ended 1/10, 9/10 would be dead XD

      1. Not necessarily. If he only needs to change one jinzhi to delay their deaths, he could probably process them all pretty quickly before going back and fixing them all properly.

  9. Why would he want money or treasures when he could get this op group to join under him, ZM is being a blind retard as usual because of money, thats one of his major flaws.

    1. That was a business technique. Making the other feel inferior, so that he could have advantage in the negotiation 😉

      1. When has Zuo Mo ever been blinded by greed? I’ve never seen him take advantage of someone who had less than him. Any time he’s negotiated he’s done so not only for himself but also his subordinates. It’s honestly not a flaw: more of joke about how pragmatic he is. If anything he’s being nice. Bie Han and his group have been through hell. They’ve been made to forcefully serve the enemy and all but one has had their free will taken. The fact that he’s only asking for money or a limited time service is being kind. He just can’t make himself seem like a push over nor can he waste so much time and effort for nothing. He has bottom line, but he’s not without principle.

      2. When it comes down to it whats better? Death or whatever deal the devi- *cough* zou mo cuts you?

  10. Now I wonder how Pu Yao and Wei going comment on Zuo Mo’s upgraded “Scalping” that was easily fused together from their business deals with him in the conscious .

    1. Knowing the granpas they are going to:
      1) nitpick and say how he should have done it better
      2) act all smug and proud and be all “as expected of MY student” … and then get into fight as to whose student Lil’Mo really is.

    Thanks for the translation!

  12. Xiao Mo Ge? No! we’re back to classic Zuo Mo, baby! The scalping zombie is back in business. And with those 3 princesses coming soon there doesn’t seem to be an end for Zuo Mo’s shamelessness.

    1. if anything because the old fogies are in on it. The scale is going to be even better then the trick Pu tried on that dead family that tried to step on them back in the beginning of little cloud jie. As in when they robed there warehouse but left poisonous farm tools behind. This is going to be spectacular.

  13. Zuo Mo; the man who you sell yourself to, and still pay him for buying you. 😂

    1. And not only that but he also makes you think that you just made a bargain of your lifetime…Until you stop, think, analysize and realize – oh sh*t, I’ve been had.

  14. “Just like right now. You do not dare to kill me because you are afraid of my battalion! You are afraid that my battalion will destroy your family!” The coward using a threat against the more powerful mans family so he can speak without consequence. While goading the guy into fighting an enemy he doesn’t dare to fight.

    This logic makes no sense. Even if the guy is promising to get revenge for him. How does the assassin know that, if he fails, Zuo Mo won’t find and kill his family too? Would make more sense to give Bu Hengs head to Zuo Mo to try and get a favor. Zuo Mo simultaneously defeated their strongest move and wiped out a large portion of their battalions with one attack. If he kills Bu Heng here, his faction will have lost their strongest general. Making them easing pickings for Zuo Mo and Guard camp. The only thing he has to worry about is Zuo Mo forgiving him and if he’ll actually listen to his request.

    1. Bu Heng’s battalion is famous and ranked high up as one of the strongest battalions around. ZM has a few battalions but they are untested compared to Bu Heng’s. WoC has always put large numbers above individual power. How would he convince ZM to protect him after killing Bu Heng? He needs to make a deal with ZM with Bu Heng as leverage first, but in the time he does that The Heng Battalion can kill his family.. that is if he can even escape. A well trained unit will become only temporarily disorganized from the loss of their leader, full collapse is usually unlikely to occur; that is why command structures are in place.

  15. …It’d be funny his price was all the valuables of the Xuan Kong sect. First upgrade the Sin battalion, give them the ability to take down his enemies, then reap all the rewards.
    Sounds like a Zuo Mo thing to do…

    1. Master Pu is so proud of his deshi *wipes a tear*

      Wei snorts in a polite and gentlemen lie way:”Whose deshi? Pu’s? Oh, right LITTLE yao arts are Zuo Mo’s strong point. RIGHT AFTER Mo skills, shen power, formation skills and ling power.” *gentlemen smile*
      Pu:”Wei…SHUT UP.”

  16. Fang Xiang you make me cry sometimes with your names. Besides all the Wei’s that get muddled in my head, Bo Feng/Fu Feng, Bu Heng, and Bei Han’s stories got all discombobulated in my head where part of the time I was thinking that Bei Han was there to get revenge instead of Bu Heng. But I’m straight now!

    I can’t wait to see what the best friend discount is LOL Thanks for all your work!

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

    Lol.. i said to sell themself to Zuo Mo if they want to be ZM’s pupil as a joke.. but dang it Zuo Mo! Don’t take my word too seriously!!

    1. Ohhh,so it was YOU giving him weird ideas…*long stare* Hmph, I guess I’m not going to judge you; he would have reached that conclusion anyway😌

  18. Thank you for the chapter!
    It’s the return of the Scalping Zombie.
    Before you know it we will be farming again and making yin beads, it’ll be great
    (I wish)

  19. and all of Great Peace City > (remove “all”) | The enemy of the enemy was a friend > The enemy of my enemy is my friend | delivered up himself like this > deliviered like this | It has not just > It is not just

    Thanks for the chapter.
