Chapter Five Hundred and Ninety Six – Great Peace Treasure Pavilion

Zuo Mo coughed lightly. “I hear that mo have long lifespans … …”

Hearing this beginning, Fu Feng instantly panicked, “Little Mo Ge, you cannot do this! His Highness … …”

“One hundred years!” Zuo Mo interrupted Fu Feng.

“Take it or leave it, there is no second offer! As for Xuan Kong Temple, do not worry. I will destroy those thieving baldies sooner or later! I will not stop you from having your revenge.”

Zuo Mo’s price scared everyone. Tao Xing’s face was slightly pale, much less Fu Feng. He was completely white in fright.

Bie Han was silent.

Zuo Mo counted on his fingers. “It is only one hundred years, you will not lose out. Think about it. You are mo, your life is long to begin with, one hundred years, that’s a flick of the finger, a brief moment of life! What is that worth? Think about it, this Sin Battalion, other than the things I’ve already talked about, I have to be responsible for after-sale services, equipping them, and also providing food and shelter, that’s a huge expense. Think again, can you really charge into Xuan Kong Temple the way your are now? Not just one Sin Battalion, even if you had ten battalions, you will not manage to make it far. They are one of the great four! Even a hair of their back is thicker than you! Your thinking is very naïve!”

Bie Han was silent. He knew that what Zuo Mo said was correct. No matter how strong he was, he could not destroy Xuan Kong Temple with just Sin Battalion alone. They would not even be able to step onto Xuan Kong Temple. The other had enough battalions to wear him down and also had defensive formations everywhere.

“If you do not care about revenge and are just seeking a way to die, then I have nothing further to say. But if it was me who had such great hate with Xuan Kong Temple, it would be strange if I don’t upend them. I want them to cry when they hear the name of Little Mo Ge, and then I will flatten Xuan Kong Temple and burn it to the ground. Oh, that will be good!”

Bie Han’s expression shifted, his fists unconsciously tightened.

“Brother, that is what pleasurable revenge is! What you want to do is called seeking your own death. You are providing Xuan Kong Temple with a benefit, making it so they have one less thing to worry about! That’s not how you take revenge, we need to consider strategy, timing, we need to strengthen ourselves, and weaken the other. Even if we cannot destroy them, we have to at least be like a fish bone stuck in their throat and make them uncomfortable, so that they cannot rest in peace!”

Zuo Mo’s tone turned.

“Your skill in fighting is pretty good but not in this. However, I can do it!”

Zuo Mo patted his chest loudly, and said with a serious expression, “I am the master of Cloud Sea Jie, I have many armies, and a specialized forging camp. I have xiuzhe, yao, mo in my service. If you work with me for a hundred years, we strengthen our forces, then can’t we step on Xuan Kong Temple like stepping on a worm?”

“Brother!” Zuo Mo persuaded. “Just one hundred years, a slight faction of your life. Compared to your deep hatred, what is that worth? Such a profitable transaction!”

“Alright! I agree!” Bie Han suddenly raised his head, his face filled with murderousness. “You are right, I want them to be unable to eat and rest in peace! Each day that we are alive, they will not rest in peace for that day!”

Fu Feng looked dazedly at His HIghness. He had not expected His Highness to agree like this. He wanted to cry. What kind of person did not bargain when doing business?

“Great!” Zuo Mo clapped his hand and said to Bie Han with an admiring expression. “A true man has to be decisive like this!”

Tao Xing’s face was slightly pale. He was completely frightened by this business deal that occurred right in front of him. One hundred years! Such light words for one hundred years of servitude!

Now that he thought about it, the mo embryos that he had to pay that day were really a cheap price! He looked in sympathy at Bie Han. Pitiful child, you are so pitiful to have to asked this person for help.

Zuo Mo suddenly turned around and faced Tao Xing. “Old Tao, the materials … …”

Tao Xing who was in a frightened state almost jumped up. “Ah ah ah ah! Materials … … oh oh oh, the materials, … … no problem! I will provide all of it, freely!”

Zuo Mo was very happy and patted Tao Xing’s shoulder warmly. “Old Tao, I just knew that you are the one that understands me the best!”

Tao Xing’s expression almost froze on his face as he nodded frantically. “This is something that I should do!”

He really was frightened … …

So scary … …


In the sea of consciousness.

“One hundred years is too short!” Pu Yao was unsatisfied.

“You should have signed him for a lifetime. He would still agree,” Wei said with a smile, “if you will let him have his revenge.”

Zuo Mo rolled his eyes. “I, Little Mo Ge, care about holding to my morals when doing business.”

His tone suddenly changed as he said seriously. “I used shen power.”

Pu Yao and Wei simultaneously stilled.

Zuo Mo’s face was grave. “The last jinzhi on the Sin Battalion member that was connected to the soul was created with shen power.”

Shen power?” Pu Yao and Wei’s expressions became greve.

“Xuan Kong Temple has grasped shen power?” Wei was slightly surprised.

“I don’t know, it should be a kind of shen power that is not fully developed.” Zuo Mo thought and then said, “But it definitely is a kind of shen power. I cannot describe it. The ling power I used was consumed and because there was no other way, I was forced to use shen power in order to complete the mo matrix.”

Pu Yao’s expression recovered as he smiled coldly. “Xuan Kong Temple is not dumb. How can they not have any ambitions for obtaining shen power? It probably isn’t just them. The other sects probably are also studying it in secret.”

Zuo Mo’s mind shifted. “So the truth is that the four great sects pursue the descendants of ancient tribes for shen power?”

“Clearly!” Pu Yao’s cold smile remained. “They were not good people before.”

“Be careful, do not let anyone else know that you cultivate shen power,” Wei said gravely.

“En, don’t worry, it is not easy even for me to manipulate this shen power,” Zuo Mo said helplessly. However, then his mood went up as he snickered. “However, it is very beneficial for my shen power when I remake the mo matrices for Sin Battalion. Especially those jinzhi. There are many places where I need to use shen power. I can profit and I can also cultivate shen power, I’m really a genius! Haha!”

“Oh, then there less of a loss.” Wei said neutrally.

“It is better than nothing.” Pu Yao said lazily.


Ceng Lian’er was not in a good mood. It had been a few days since Zuo Mo had cultivated. He was working on the Sin Battalion. If Zuo Mo did not cultivate, she could not use paired cultivation. She had already detected the increase of shen power inside her body had slowed down.

Her teacher had once told her that the cultivation method she used was not complete and there were many chapters that had been lost. Even though the previous generations had spent great effort to try to repair it, but it still could not reach the effects they hoped for.

There were rarely those of her teacher’s lineage that could cultivate shen power.

For example, her teacher’s teacher never obtained shen power. There were many details in a profound method like shen power that could not be described in words alone.

She had finally managed to cultivate shen power and found someone to perform paired cultivation with. Her good fortune was many times that of her teacher.

Yet what she felt helpless about was that Zuo Mo was not currently cultivating!

If Zuo Mo did not cultivate, she could not use paired cultivation and her shen power growth was unusually slow. She had tried to copy Zuo Mo and went to read the Mo Skill Steles but she found she was quickly unable to keep reading. The things the Mo Skill Steles talked about were too simple. The final goal of the Mo Skill Stele was shen power but that was just one section of the content and was extremely hidden. There was nothing mentioned about the things past obtaining shen power.

After reading through it, she threw it to the side.

That time, she had only fought briefly with Qi Diao Yu but she felt great wariness of the other’s power. Her shen power was still too weak and Qi Diao Yu had managed to discover it. This really was too dangerous.

If the news spread, she would have to run for her life.

In the last few days, she did not leave the residence and stayed inside the courtyard. The compound was heavily guarded and even Qi Diao Yu would not dare to carelessly charge in.

But Zuo Mo actually was not cultivating shen power!

Thinking about this, she was so angry she wanted to throw the teacup in her hand.

He was not focusing on his actual work!

She decided to think of a solution.


“Public safety is very chaotic recently,” Princess Xin’s brow creased, “bandits have kept appearing along the way. I heard that there are more bandits gathering to target us.”

A youth smiled and said, “Princess, do not worry, with us guarding you, no matter how many they come, we just have a few more opponents to practice against.”

Princess Xin did not like the other’s frivolous tone. “There may be experts among the bandits.”

The youths neither shook their head or smiled. Most of them were strong even among their families and naturally looked down on the bandits.

Princess Xia smiled. “Elder Sister does not need to worry. After a few more days, we will reach Great Peace City and have some peace.”

Princess Xin’s expression eased slightly. “Younger Sister is right.”

There wasn’t any battalion that dared to fight in Great Peace City. This was also applicable to the bandits. There had never been any bandits that dared to rampage in Great Peace City.

“Which of you have heard of the Great Peace Treasure Pavilion?” a youth suddenly spoke.

“Great Peace Treasure Pavilion? What is that?” The other youths heard this and crowded over.

The youth had a proud expression. “The news that just recently spread. Supposedly, Shi Zi Ming had collected innumerable treasures so he built Great Peace Treasure Pavilion. In the first three years of the Great Peace City, this Great Peace Treasure Pavilion always existed and it was mentioned in many records. But later, due to unknown reasons, the Great Peace Treasure Pavilion disappeared, and Shi Zi Ming never talked about it again as though it never existed.”

All of the people’s interests were stirred and they asked, “And then?”

“News spread just a while ago that the Great Peace Treasure Pavilion is going to appear again. We can have a good look when we go this time!”

“Stop gossiping! Great Peace Treasure Pavilion, I’ve gone to Great Peace City many times and never heard of some Great Peace Treasure Pavilion!”

“That might not be the case! I have seen records about the Great Peace Treasure Pavilion, I think on the [Great Peace Travel Records.]”

“I’ve also read about it!”

“Is there really a Great Peace Treasure Pavilion? We need to go search! If we find it, we’ll be rich!”

“Dream on!”

“Great Peace Treasure Pavilion?” Princess Xin seemed to think of something and an indecipherable light flashed through her eyes.

    1. Mr. Fang, you throwing treasure towards ge again. What a weak foreshadowing of plot armor. Yeah2. But there was no reaction whatsoever when ZM said he has MO YAO XIU battalions? wow. I was expecting some inner grasps there. But yeah the fact that I am high jacking the 1st comment doesn’t change.

      1. Well, you have to excuse the audience for being little overwhelmed at the moment…Bie Han was hypnotized by Zuo Mo’s Salesman speech “hundred years to a true love- err, I mean revenge- are but a day!” and Tao Xing was terrified out of his mind…Fu Feng may have a delayed reaction to the news…But then again he knows Zuo Mo a little better, so maybe he won’t be surprised by anything Zuo Mo does?

    1. Lan had a good head on his shoulders. These guys will most likely use the one between their legs.

    2. IIRC, either Pu Yao or Wei wants the Princess and her clan to be greatly inconvenienced, though I wonder how the author is going to play it.

    3. No way that transaction is going peacefully. I’m guessing that he’s going to have to do something for her, or give her something valuable that will make his heart break.
      Honestly, I’m curious as to what happened with that one girl at the very beginning of the story who sent the paper crane which trapped him in a pervy illusion.
      Where’d she go?

      1. I’d guess she ends up being a member of the one sect our zombie isn’t enemies with and either defuses a situation due to recognizing him or finds one of his formations and goes to meet the leader after being impressed and finds out its him.
        Either way, I expect them to reunite at some point.

  1. well once he tried serving him he’ll never leave even after a 100 years. he’ll become one of his true followers for life.
    how long is zuo mo’s lifespan and others anyway? o_o

    1. At least 500. If life span increases cumulatively across cultivation paths, then it’s 1,500. You can see the life spans on the cultivation terms and glossary page.

    2. its in the glossary, though, only for Xiuzhe.
      a Jindan lives for 300 a Yuanying for 500

    3. Yeah, after getting taste of the benefits Bie Han will be loyal for life, Zuo Mo can’t get rid of him even if he tried…

  2. “Oh, then there less of a loss.” Wei said neutrally.

    “It is better than nothing.” Pu Yao said lazily.

    …These old bastards! 😛 They truly know how to do profitable business.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. Zuo Mo:”Tsk! If you know how to do it better, go and do it! Always making Ge do all the hard work” *mutter mutter*

    1. You know, those teeths in the back of your mouth? The ones before the wisdom ones

  3. 100 years is really nothing, considering ZM is saving all their lives and is going to see to all their livning needs and help getting revenge on one of the big 4.

    “He was not focusing on his actual work!”
    Wtf is this b**** talking about, he has no obligation to help her in any way. She should be happy that shes even allowed to follow him, when shes such a huge burden and a lifethreating treat to him, because of the bs forced dou cultivation.

    1. Relax she simply has yet to understand the greatness that is Zuo Mo The real problem here is she hasn’t told Zuo Mo that her Shen power has been found out putting both of them at risk… She currently has too much pride and has yet to see Mt. Tai :p (So far Zuo Mo has broken everyone’s common sense eventually she is just yet to see enough to realize…)
      What I really gather from this is she doesn’t have a real shen cultivation method and is relying on Zuo Mo really too much of the secrets of shen power have been lost I blame the 4 clans…

      1. “shes such a huge burden” I guess you missed the part where she saved his life at the arena. Then fought off Qi Diao Yu solo.

    2. It’s thanks to her that he doesn’t have to worry about his cheat’s only disadvantage, mind you.

      Also, she never pesters him or gets in his way. She even protected him before; how is she a burden? Because she wants to benefit from their paired cultivation? His life is at risk if she dies, and viceversa. It makes sense to want to power up, especially seeong how he has many enemies. Because she doesn’t quite agree with his priorities? That’s just her having a different opinion, really.

      1. She follows him anywhere he goes, and he cant stop her from that, isent that pestering him? And because of her, he now has huge weakness of dying if she dies. And has to shoulder the burden of always protecting her, so that he dosent die from her getting killed or something like that. Than there is the fact that she dosent give a crap about what he says, and does whatever se wants. And honestly i dont care about her opinion, since i find it stupid how she got implemented into the story, with a bs forced dou cultivation method where ZM had no say in if he wanted it or not. I mean comeon, its “Dou” cultivation. Shouldent both people agree to it and be willing, before it should be able to work. It dosent make sense at all.

      2. Yes, and by the same token, if he dies, she dies. She’s just as inconvenienced, especially because Zuo Mo has many enemies (and she doesn’t know about his plot armor and absurd luck). It makes sense she’d follow him. They’re supposed to be in a very dangerous jie. She follows but does not interfere with his activities, so it’s not pestering.

        She can protect herself so far, and she was able to escape the other shen user when she couldn’t outmatch him. I don’t know if in the future she will need to be rescued, but it hasn’t happened yet, so why are you already holding it against her? LOL

        Yes, and? He doesn’t care about what she says either and does whatever he wants. What’s wrong with that? They’re not close after all, and she’s not his subordinate (yet?) Though, I’d like it if they became just friends, maybe. If anything because there are too few female characters around, and she’s reasonably strong.

        I hated how she was introduced out of nowhere too. The author could’ve come up with a better way, seriously. That was just random. But that’s to be blamed on the author, not Lianer.

        Well, so the author’s idea of paired cultivation doesn’t match ours. It’s his story, though, so he can do whatever he wants. It’s not the worst I’ve read. Be thankful he hasn’t written something as ludicrous as sparkly vampires, LOL.

      3. Well why should he care about what she says, he dident ask her to come along. She forced herself on his group, and i have no idea what sparkly vampires is, but it sounds pretty horrible…

      4. Yes, and at the same time, she’s just following, but she didn’t promise to serve him, so why should SHE care about what he says? I don’t understand that point. She can benefit from his cultivation, but he also benefits in that his hand won’t consume him, and he could in theory also benefit if she could make a breakthrough.

        You have no idea how jealous I am of you because you don’t know what those sparkly vampires are. XD And yes, it’s utterly horrendous and vomit-inducing.

  4. They’re already rich beyond most people’s wildest dreams, why are they saying something stupid like “we’ll be rich”?

    I wonder if its about to appear because shen users are in the city? And if so, how many powerful factions are aware of that fact.

    She really needs to calm down. He’s not her slave and he never agreed to paired cultivation with her. If she really wants him to practice daily even when he has better things to do, she should make a deal with him. She’ll definitely get shafted, but its the fastest, easiest and surest way to fix the problem.

    Also, she should tell Zuo Mo about the fact that they’ve been outed as shen users. Unless she was lying about the whole life-and-death connection between them, its important that he know.

      1. She has the right to be proud: her personal power, beauty, lineage, and mysteriousness are all top-notch. As for self-centered: which cultivator isn’t for the most part? Zuo Mo certainly isn’t an exception; why would his waifu be different? Is she supposed to give everything up, and in doing so greatly reduce her own worth, to prop Zuo Mo up? If she did so, she’s be his supporter, sure. Yet she’d have to accept no longer being any kind of partner, but his follower.

      2. Meetmycomputer I know The only major issue I really have is that her Shen power got found out and she hasn’t told Zuo Mo as that is a dangerous situation. I have no problems otherwise.

    1. They constantly have to spend their resources because their faction is always growing.

      The cultivation benefits them both (Zuo Mo even more so because it prevents his hand from going nuclear). You would have a point if it only helped her.

      I’m sure she’s just frustrated though. The paired cultivation is useful but it’s not like she asked for it either. She just took a no use crying over spilled milk approach. Besides, seeing someone whose life you just saved, ignore you and worry about themselves would put anyone on edge.

      Stil, Zuo Mo does hold the power in this relationship. Sitting their and complaining is going to get her no where.

    2. I guess she assumed ZM like typical Mc that like to cultivate everyday and pursue to be the most powerful being. By looking how powerful ZM is, I don’t blame her for her mistake. Little that she know ZM true personality and his Jack of all trade type. Sad to be her.

    3. I don’t think it was a lie. Wei even confirmed to Zuo Mo what paired cultivation is.

      1. Hmm. Truly, you might be right. Although, at that point in time, I don’t think she was aware that Zuo Mo is so proficient at cultivating shen power, was she? What did she have to gain from lying just to follow him, who doesn’t even treat her warmly?

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

    100… *cough* *cough*
    *proceed to ignore the “bargain” deal*

    Ceng pouted cause her study buddy got stolen while a big exam is coming soon..
    all you had to do is be honest and ask you know~ 😆

      1. So how about it, hundred years? Or more? *gentle attentive smile*

  6. ‘ “Brother!” Zuo Mo persuaded. “Just one hundred years, a slight faction of your life. Compared to your deep hatred, what is that worth? Such a profitable transaction!” ‘
    – Zuo Mo the Super Salesman has used the skill Persuasion and it was super effective!

  7. Tao Xing pales: JUST one hundred years! Just one HUNDRED years of servitude! Thank goodness he only asked the mo embryos from me. Such a cheap price! I was so lucky, so lucky! :'(
    Zuo Mo suddenly turns to Tao Xing. “Old Tao, the materials…” 😐
    Tao Xing jumps in fright:“AAHHH! Right! Th-the materials…yes, yes, YES, the materials! N-no problem, Sir! Daren! I will provide all of it! Right away! Freely!” D8
    Zuo Mo smiles warmly at Tao Xing: “Old Tao, I just knew that you are the one that understands me the best! It’s nice to do business with you!” 😀
    Tao Xing:”R-right…I feel the same, Daren…” Please, can’t you just forget about me and leave me aloooooone… :'(

  8. ‘ “One hundred years is too short!” Pu Yao was unsatisfied.
    “You should have signed him for a lifetime. He would still agree,” Wei said with a smile, “if you will let him have his revenge.” ‘
    – What did I say about these two nitpicking? Hmmm~

  9. ‘Thinking about this, she was so angry she wanted to throw the teacup in her hand.’
    – Lol. Lady Lioness makes me think of one Disney Princess here. “You are not a very nice old man” *stomps feet and frowns*

  10. Princess Xia smiled. “Elder Sister does not need to worry. After a few more days, we will reach Great Peace City and have some peace.”
    – Lol. Did the Princess make a pun here? Or was she actually serious? You will not find ‘peace’ in that city, lass. Zuo Mo already stole it.

  11. “Stop gossiping! Great Peace Treasure Pavilion, I’ve gone to Great Peace City many times and never heard of some Great Peace Treasure Pavilion!”
    – Cue certain someone getting themselves a Great Peace Treasure Pavilion. By accident.

  12. “Great Peace Treasure Pavilion?”
    Hm… another job for the scalping zombie.

  13. Wow! I cant believe he is doing it all alone! lol
    As expected of Zuo Mo!
    Maybe I had forgotten the wall he built alone long time ago….
    crazy XD
    Thanks for the translation!

    1. Make that a ‘city’. Golden Crow City was basicly all Zuo Mo. Other may have lend a hand in manual labour but the main work was all Lil’Mo. Determined bastard, that one *nods firmly*

  14. Wait rumors of treasure while Zou Mo is around + mentioned by the princesses companions+ the old guys want the princesses faction to suffer+ Scalping Zombie….= new round of shameless theft and looting the likes that the mo world has never seen and will pray to not see again. and massive hilarity. (rubs hands in anticipation)

  15. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! Who can say the Sin Battalion won’t willingly stay on even after 100 years? Zuo Mo who showed morals is sure to be in their good books.
