Chapter Six Hundred and Twenty Nine – Fight!

Zuo Mo stared dazedly at the crowd in front of him.

Looking out, almost half of all the mo in Great Peace City were gathered  in front of him. One hundred thousand? Two hundred thousand?

When the numbers reached a certain level, the atmosphere it produced was shocking. Zuo Mo was shocked by this ocean of people in front of him.

“How come there are so many people?” Zuo Mo pulled Lan Tian Long over and asked in a low voice.

Lan Tian Long’s expression was slightly smug. “Ha, we were stupid, not many paid attention to us when we first tried to recruit people. Then someone asked if we were in the same group as you, and then I realized why we are failing. So I used your reputation and it became like this!”

“My reputation?” Zuo Mo gaped and was speechless.

“Brother, everyone saw how you stopped Lin Qian’s sword strike.  Now that the city master is gone, the one with the most reputation is you. Ha, well, everyone believes in you!” Lan Tian Long patted Zuo Mo’s shoulder and said seriously, “Brother, everyone’s lives are now in your hands. No matter what, try to save as many of them as possible!”

Having reported in, he jumped away.

Looking blankly at the sea of eyes filled with anticipation, Zuo Mo felt his throat getting dry and was at loss at what to do.

He had told Lan Tian Long to call some people over as a way to increase his presence. At an important time, they could also act as cannon fodder.

He had not thought of saving other people.

But now, when he saw the dense sea of people and the faces that were looking at him, for some reason, his heart felt suffocated!

Why was it like this … …

Zuo Mo lost his concentration.

He was not a saint and he did not uphold the precept of justice nor did he believe he was a hero. He even felt that he was a scoundrel.

He was selfish, greedy, cold hearted. He could do anything for victory, sacrifice people unconnected to him to save his people. He didn’t feel any pressure or guilt when he did that.

When the world was like this, who could be responsible for others?

But looking out at the the sea of quiet people, with hopeful eyes and faces covered in dust, he could not bring himself to say those words.

Completely silent.

The crowd was so large that they had to  stand on the ruins and at the corners. Some people were alone, some were hugging each other. They were looking up. Tens of thousands of people were looking at Zuo Mo.

They were waiting, waiting for a miracle to occur.

In their minds, Xiao Mo Ge was another term for miracle. On him, the light of miracles repeatedly flashed. People hoped that a miracle would occur, just like in the past.

They were waiting, waiting for Xiao Mo Ge to say something.


Princess Xia and the others looked at the densely packed crowd, and then at the tiny figure in the sky above the crowd. Their expressions were filled with shock.

They were astounded by the scene in front of them.

They had also underestimated Zuo Mo’s influence.

“The times create heroes!” Zhu Ke couldn’t help but murmur.

No one could take their gaze away from that youth carrying the Anti Dragon Claw on his back.

A strange look flashed through Princess Xia’s eyes. She seemed to murmur to herself, “You can always bring hope and bravery to others … …”

Xiao Mo Ge’s figure in the sky suddenly moved.

Everyone unconsciously stopped breathing. They had a feeling that a scene that they would never forget was about to begin.


Zuo Mo moved, and the Anti Dragon Claw on his back also moved.

He faced the gazes of the people and slowly spoke. His voice was hoarse and deep as it passed through the air.

“You have surprised me, I am shocked and speechless. I do not know why you have chosen me. I do not understand.”

He shook his head as though he was narrating or speaking to himself.

“You leave me not knowing what to do. Truthfully, it is very rare for that to occur to me. You do not know me, we are not personally connected nor have we interacted before. I’m very shocked that you have chosen to put your trust in me. But I have to tell you I don’t have a good solution.”

Many people showed disappointment but they were still silent.

“Outside the curtain are the Ming Bandits. You know better than I do how cruel and vicious they are. If I had a battalion of the same scale on my hands, maybe I would have some confidence, but I do not. I am just like all of you; afraid, terrified, and hopeless. I know that the possibility of breaking through is not high. They have never taken hostages. I will die, just like all of you.”

Some people started to tremble, some had hopeless expression and some started to cry and sob. The pairs of eyes that had been bright with hope gradually dimmed.

“Yes, they are the Ming Bandits. In front of them, we are weak like newborn lambs. In their eyes, we are newborn lambs. They are waiting for the curtain of water to disappear and then have a full meal. We will definitely die.”

Zuo Mo’s last sentence was like the call of death. Many people were unable to bear it any longer. They fell to the ground and sobbed.

“We are definitely going to die.”

Zuo Mo seemed to repeat this like he was speaking to himself but his words caused many people to raise up their heads and look at the youth in the air.

“But I do not plan to stop resisting. I do not plan on delivering myself under the butcher’s knife like a weak lamb, and let them swallow me down. Yes, they are strong! Yes, they are savage! Yes, we don’t have any chance at all! Yes, we will die! But so what?”

With the last words, Zuo Mo’s tone suddenly became excited. He glared, his expression twisted, the tendons in his neck bulging. He was like a wolf forced to the corner.

“But so what!”

He suddenly increased his volume. His angry shout echoed in Great Peace City like thunder.

Everyone was shocked by his words. They stopped crying, they raised their heads again and they held their breaths.

Zuo Mo’s gaze swept across the crowd. His face was twisted and his voice seemed to come from his chest, deep and with all the power he could muster, trembling.

“Yes! But so what! Yes! We don’t have a solution but so what! We are too weak, but so what! I don’t want to sit here and wait! I don’t want to wait to be captured! Other than fighting, do we have any other choice!?”

Zuo Mo looked at them and then shouted harshly, “Do we have any other choice?”

The mo below stopped crying. They wiped away the tears, those on the ground stood up and gripped their mo weapons. They raised their faces. The terror and hopelessness on their faces slowly faded. The light of determination crept onto their faces.

Yes, did they have any other choice?

When people find that they don’t have any other choices but to stand and fight, their terror would fade.

“We don’t have any other choice! Nothing! I don’t know why you have chosen me, I don’t know why you believe in me, I don’t have a good solution, I don’t have a miracle, I can only lead you to do one thing!”

The light in people’s eyes grew brighter like there was a flame flashing deep inside.

Zuo Mo’s eyes were burning, his features twisted as he forced the words out between his teeth slowly, “To fight!”

“Fight! Continue to fight! A fight that will end in death! A fight that will not end until death! We will fight to declare to those bastards ‘so what if they are the Ming Bandits!’ So what if they are stronger than us!”

He looked crazy, his tone was crazy, he was like a burning ball of flame that illuminated the surroundings.

Fire burned in the eyes of everyone in the crowd. The fire burned fanatically. They felt that their blood was boiling. Among the hopelessness, an excitement they never had before exploded from deep within their hearts!

“We can still fight! We can still fight! We can still mother***ing fight!”

Zuo Mo suddenly grabbed the Anti Dragon Claw and raised it high up. He shouted angrily, “Fight!”


What answered him was an exploding volcano, a tsunami of angry shouts, fists raised in the air like a forest of fists!

“Kill’em!” Zuo Mo shouted angrily!

“Kill’em!” Countless voices shouted at the top of their lungs!

The ground was tremblings, angry waves formed on the ocean, the most minute power was burning!


“Quick quick quick, faster!”

“One thousand people to a unit, faster!”

“Remember who your unit commander is, what you need to do is follow him. You will attack in whatever direction that he attacks!”

“During the fight, no matter the reason, do not retreat! Even if you are wounded, even if you are about to die! If you retreat, your unit commander will execute you immediately!”

All of Great Peace City became busy than ever before. Everyone was furiously learning, trying their best to learn how to listen to the orders of their commander and go through the most basic training.

The power that the hundred members of Guard Camp could produce in this fight was too small. Zuo Mo decided to use them as the skeleton of their group and made them troop commanders.

One thousand people per troop, this was the largest unit ever.

But even so, there were not enough unit commanders. Zuo Mo had to pick some experienced mo to act as commanders.

Regardless of how chaotic or busy it was, his expression was calm from beginning to end. If he had the time to spare, he would patrol with the Anti Dragon Claw on his back to raise morale.

Even though everything was still a mess, the morale was high.

After realizing their hopes of survival were non-existent, people were not left in terror any more. The residents of Great Peace City had mostly come here for the Mo Skill Steles. They each had some power and backbone. When they realized that they would undoubtedly die, their spirits were aroused.

Since they were going to die, they would pull some down along with them!

Fire burned in their chests.

All of Great Peace City was like a burning furnace that accumulated power under the black curtain of water.

The Ming Bandits were waiting. But they were also waiting!

      1. Some days. Only when I think the competition with the F5 sect is fierce. Adversity and hardship leads to strength and growth… definitely not just a bad plot device in xianxia novels…haha.

      2. It will be entertaining to follow this on-off war then. Looking forward to it 😛

    1. Your comment has world class leader feel to it… 😀

  1. Zuo Mo saying things as they are XD Well if Lil Miss shows up things will have changed and there is always the possibility of a sudden breakthrough/aid by those old ghosts in his head but other than that we just know Zuo Mo is the protagonist so he clearly can’t die yet 😛

  2. Im commenting after reading the few first lines:
    When these two hundred thousand mo knew that Zuo Mo is originally a xiu zhe, I swear they will lose all shit knowing that they are trusting their lives at a xiu zhe.

    1. Not gonna happen.
      Mo 1 : He’s a xiuzhe? Stupid lies, look at his mo matrixes.
      Mo 2 : Mo King! Mo King! Mo King!
      Yao 1 : Stupid Mo. He’s obviously a Yao.
      Mo 1 : Anti Dragon Claw say what?
      Mo 2 : Mo King! Mo King! Mo King!
      Mo 1 : Mo King! Mo King! Mo King!
      Yao 1 : But. . .whatever, I don’t care. Mo King! Mo King! Mo King!

      1. They would not believe it even if Zuo Mo did this:

        Zuo Mo:”Hey, guess what? Originally I was a xiuzhe!”
        Mo:”Hohohoo, our King has such a weird sense of humour! Hohohoo.”
        Zuo Mo:”No, no. I’m serious. Honestly, I lived among xiuzhe. I was their ling plant farmer.”
        Yao:”That’s no surprise! Our genius golden battle general is so mighty that he could even live among xiuzhe and not be discovered by them. He is so stealthy and good at espionage that no one can catch him!”
        Zuo Mo:”…whatever. Forget I said anything.”

    2. DO we really know if Zuo Mo was a Xiu? Remember that the exact wording was his appearance was altered to look like a Xiu. He was also suspected to actually be a Yao Mo in disguise thus drawing troublesome eyes to him while he was in the sect. (Even his sect though he might be Yao Mo which we recently learned was why they sent Zuo Mo away from Kun Lun) Until Zuo Mo can recover his true background he true race remains completely unknown to us.
      (I’m not sure the ancient Shen tribes count as any of the three races considering they were the precursors of the current races)

  3. ‘Zuo Mo stared dazedly at the crowd in front of him.
    Looking out, almost half of all the mo in Great Peace City were gathered in front of him. One hundred thousand? Two hundred thousand?

    Looking blankly at the sea of eyes filled with anticipation, Zuo Mo felt his throat getting dry and was at loss at what to do.
    — But now, when he saw the dense sea of people and the faces that were looking at him, for some reason, his heart felt suffocated!’

    – It must be: AGORAPHOBIA! (Or “O-M-G-how-much-mo-bei-will-this-kind-of-group-cost-me” phobia.)

  4. ‘They were waiting, waiting for a miracle to occur.
    In their minds, Xiao Mo Ge was another term for miracle. On him, the light of miracles repeatedly flashed. People hoped that a miracle would occur, just like in the past.’

    – They are not the only people who think like that. Lil’Mo is the Miracle Maker of the whole Universe.

  5. ‘He looked crazy, his tone was crazy, he was like a burning ball of flame that illuminated the surroundings.
    Fire burned in the eyes of everyone in the crowd. The fire burned fanatically. They felt that their blood was boiling. Among the hopelessness, an excitement they never had before exploded from deep within their hearts!’

    – And that is how Zuo Mo got his new fanatical fan club. Goob job, Lil’Mo! I just wonder how LIl’Miss will react to this…

  6. After reading:
    Hehehe.. Will they become zuo mo’s subordinate after this? If vermillion bird a division made of xiu zhe under zuo mo, what name will the division of mo be? White tiger? Azure dragon? Black turtle?

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

    Zombie General guide to Leadership:
    “Drown you troops morale to the lowest of the lowest before fighting! Then you can focus their anger at your enemy”

    1. Yep. Have them expect NOTHING but death, but let them decide HOW they die:

      1) cowardly, without fight, lying down like pet poodle + give a little hint that even their ancestors will turn in their graves in shame and there will be stories told of their cowardness generation after generation…

      2) courageously, fighting till their last breath, like REAL men (or women) + hint that their death will not be in vain and shall always be remembered in glorious heroic tales forever and always.

      Conclusion: Zuo Mo sure knows how to speak to mo folk. Are we sure he doesn’t have mo blood in him? If he doesn’t, he must have been a mo in his past life.

  8. “Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon in front of them
    Volley’d and thunder’d;
    Storm’d at with shot and shell,
    Boldly they rode and well,
    Into the jaws of Death,
    Into the mouth of Hell
    Rode the six hundred.”
    – Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    1. Darn, I got caught up thinking of cannon fodder and quoted the wrong verse.

      “”Forward, the Light Brigade!”
      Was there a man dismay’d?
      Not tho’ the soldier knew
      Someone had blunder’d:
      Theirs not to make reply,
      Theirs not to reason why,
      Theirs but to do and die:
      Into the valley of Death
      Rode the six hundred.”

  9. Thank you for the chapter!
    Zuo mo, have some faith. Born to battle Bro will just swallow them up like dogs.

    Hu hu hu, im looking forward to Zuo Mo leading them with a Rhino charge using the threads of worry to link them together.
    Who can stand in front of this

  10. thank you for the chapter!

    So, ZM is going on the offense…. somehow, i feel sorry for the bandits…..

    on another note: how many survivor will leave ZM’s side after this battle? any bets?

    1. I say closer to all survivors will be converted to Zuo Mo Sect by the end of this. And anyone who leaves ZM, it will most likely be on friendly terms.
      Battle lord mo claps ZM on shoulder and says:”Good job, son. If you ever need help with anything send us a papercrane. We shall crush your enemies.”
      Or if any of the princesses leave: “We shall meet again~” *gives a flirty glance under the lashes*

  11. I wonder how many will survive, and of those that survive, how many will insist on following him in the future.

    Also wondering if one of his subordinates will take him aside at some point and let him know that they swapped that stele with a fake 😉

    1. Black smoke Yao has eidetic memory, yes? I’d bet he managed to read (and remember the content) the seal. He’ll even connect all the Shen puzzle of all Steele for Ge’s comfort learning.

  12. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and Anon! Looks like they have a new base here and since Gongsun Cha is already migrating over here once they set up some portals or something they’ll be set.

  13. Thanks for the chapter!

    This got me so exited I ran around the room for several minutes quoting the dialogue. I really really don’t want to wait to read the fight, but sadly, I have to.

    The more I see people following ZM fanatically like this, the more I think ZM is going to straight-up become a shen totem. All those references to “power of belief”…

  14. I still place their chances at “more than decent”.
    I mean, plot armor aside, as our MC will definitely live through this along with Ah Gui (because plot demands) and Ceng what’s-her-name (because she’s tied to MC’s life), Zuo Mo still has thousands of Mo under the command of Both Wei and Pu Yao. Two amazing tacticians and Generals to direct this huge army.
    Even with numbers overwhelmingly against them, I still imagine that the bandits will flee before having to be wiped out.
    Not to mention little miss is still out there. I’m not discounting the possibility that Vermilion Bird Camp will make a last minute save.

    1. A couple chapters back, it was described as being on the order of 10,000.

      Of course, Xiao Mo Ge managed to wangle himself into commanding, like, 200,000 frenzied mo, so he has the bandits seriously outnumbered. As long as a bandit can’t survive getting ganged up on by like 100 untrained people all at once, they are going DOWN.

  15. i finaly caught up , i had about 90 chs saved up , such a beautiful novel , thanks for all the hard work man ! keep it up !!! 😀

  16. Who knows, maybe once the barrier was lifted only lil miss group was left outside.
    That’d be one heck of an anti-climatic.
    Thank you for the chapter!

  17. Thanks for the chapter!

    Fanatical desire to kill can be scary as hell.

    I will kill you, you may kill me, but I will kill as many of you as possible.

    These sorts of troops, will do a lot of damage.

  18. Maybe it’s because they’ve not really explained the power of the Ming bandits…but literally saying they have 0 chance of victory? I could believe that if it was before the curtain. Now they’ve been given some time I just can’t understand this hopelessness. I’ve been lead to believe over the course of this arc that the entire city is chalked full of general level and other high level experts. It’s mentioned constantly! Although they may not have a crazy high level battalion guarding the city but it’s almost like the mecca of the mo world since experts of all kind come here due to Shi Ming Zhi influence plus tons of nobles and they act like there is no defense? So the Ming bandits could have just showed up at anytime and sacked the city? Now there is like 100,000 people with some of the best geniuses and suddenly it’s all despair? I love these novels and normally just let this kind of stuff slide because it’s all in good fun, it’s just that I really cannot understand this situation. Please help me understand something I might be missing.

  19. I really liked this story at first, the worldbuilding and the first arcs were some of the best xianxia I have read, but about halfway through it started going downhill and never recovered. Just look at Pu, how he went from interesting villain. with his own plans and motives. to glorified pet. He’s the biggest victim here, RIP.
    Might try to finish eventually for completion’s sake, but I’m stopping here for the time being.
    Great job to the translators! You guys are awesome.

    1. Haha, pretty much all Chinese readers had the same problem. I’d suggest coming back and reading at around chapter 850.

Tell me something
