Chapter Six Hundred and Thirty – The Eve
The third night came.
Great Peace City was silent. People were resting and waiting for tomorrow’s battle. Today was the last day the water curtain would remain. During these three days, the Ming Bandits had tried to attack twice but did not break through the curtain of water.
In the darkness, the light of the mo matrixes rippled.
Zuo Mo was not as cheerful as he usually was. His expression was stern and his gaze that flashed occasionally was so sharp, it seemed to penetrate people’s hearts.
“What are you thinking about?” Princess Xia’s voice came from behind him. She walked next to Zuo Mo and sat down.
“Don’t know.” Zuo Mo shook his head.
“You have times that you don’t know?” Princess Xia was slightly surprised. She smiled and said, “I had thought that you always have a solution, always have confidence!”
Looking at the silent Zuo Mo and a face that seemed thinner due to the labors of these past days, Princess Xia asked probingly, “Do you have any confidence in the battle tomorrow?”
“No,” Zuo Mo shook his head, “I asked many people in order to learn how powerful the Ming Bandits really were. Their battalion can rank in the top thirty of Hundred Savage Realm. All of them are lawless killers. Their combat style is vicious and powerful, and they are bloodthirsty. Most importantly, they have many people!”
“Many people?” Princess Xia went along and asked.
“En.” Zuo Mo’s gaze flashed as he said lightly, “They have twenty thousand people, and of that, about fifteen percent are brigadier level and above. More importantly, they have twenty generals.”
In these two days, he had spent great effort to get specific intelligence on the Ming Bandits.
Princess Xia inhaled sharply and her face was slightly pale. She was not a flower vase that was clueless about the world, this number shocked her. More than fifteen percent were brigadier level or above, that meant there were three thousand brigadier levels. Adding on the twenty general levels, this battalion was terrifying!
The Great Peace City had many experts and if it was a one on one battle, twenty general levels was nothing. But if it was in a battalion with twenty general levels leading three thousand brigadier levels, then the Great Peace City experts who were like a disorderly rabble didn’t have any chance at victory.
“After every raid, if a hostage can defeat a member of them, they can join and survive. The members that are defeated would be eliminated, and the only path left to them is to die.” Zuo Mo’s gaze turned into the darkness as he said calmly, “They used this method to become stronger. Ming Hui is talented, and what he is most talented at is a kind of jinzhi. With this jinzhi, he created and controls this beastly herd of bandits.”
The more she heard, the paler Princess Xia got. She had heard of the reputation of the Ming Bandits before, but never thought they would be so powerful!
She forced herself to calm down. “Is there no way at all?”
Zuo Mo’s expression was normal as he said, “It is not that we do not have any advantages. We have more experts than they do. They have more general levels but in terms of combat power, they cannot compare to us. If the experts on our side can work together, there may be a chance for a break through.”
Princess Xia did not speak. She understood that the situation was worse than she had imagined.
“But while everyone is strong individually, they all have complex histories and relationships, it is hard for them to trust each other. They are wary and if they encounter danger, who will trust their backs to these other people? They will definitely split apart. Unless it is a marshal, individual power is not useful on a battlefield like this.”
Zuo Mo’s voice was slightly low. “There are so many people, really beyond my expectations.”
“That shows that people trust you deeply,” Princess Xia comforted.
Zuo Mo grimaced. “Even though I was nervous before, I thought I had some chance of breaking through. But now, there is no way, I can only fight head on.”
“We have more people,” Princess Xia said with a forced smile.
“This really is a bunch of rabble. If there was more time, I wouldn’t fear these Ming Bandits, it is a pity there is only three days!” Zuo Mo grimaced. “We can only prepare as best as possible and wait for our fates!”
Princess Xia sighed lightly. “I saw that you were composed these last few days and thought you were confident. So you don’t have any confidence either!”
“You think that what I said that day was to motivate them?” Zuo Mo shook his head. “I only said what I thought. It’s not that I haven’t encountered dangerous and near hopeless situations but it is the first time I have encountered such a dangerous situation. There is almost no hope of victory to be seen!”
Princess Xia was silent and the shock on her face disappeared. She suddenly smiled. “Your words are frightening but why do I not feel afraid? Thinking about it, it is because you are not someone that will sit and wait to be captured.”
“Of course!” Zuo Mo snickered and murderousness appeared on his face. “I have never had the habit of quietly taking abuse!”
Princess Xia covered her smile as she heard this and then sank into silence.
Zuo Mo was also silent as though he was thinking of something.
“This time, we have aimed too high.” Ming Yu Wei’s brow was creased. A hint of worry flashed through her eyes. The Ming Bandits had progressed smoothly these past years, but without a doubt, after this fight, they would be known everywhere.
Ming Hui looked at the black water curtain and his usual bright smile disappeared. His presence was calm and grave and he seemed a completely different person than when he had been speaking to Bu Heng. He smiled slightly and said confidently, “This opportunity is perfect in timing and situation, we have no reason to fail. Even if it is for just the Anti Dragon Claw, we have to do this! If our strength is damaged, there are chances to replenish it, but if we miss this chance, it will be hard to come by one again.”
He floated in the air against the wind. His expression was confident as he said proudly, “With the Anti Dragon Claw, my chances of breaking into marshal level would increase greatly. We have lots of manpower and experts. If I can break into marshal level, we have a chance at the world.”
Ming Yu Wei felt that her brother’s ambitions were too grand. At this time, she did not want to pour cold water on his hopes but she still gritted out, “But after this battle, we will have offended too many factions!”
Ming Hui laughed. “It looks so from the surface but for them, these losses are not fatal. Adding on how sensitive the world’s situation is, they do not have the attention to spare on us. Who would dare to offend us? Also, with the Anti Dragon Claw, even those factions that have marshals will not dare to underestimate us.”
“The Anti Dragon Claw is just a mo weapon … …” Ming Yu Wei’s brow furrowed.
“It isn’t just a mo weapon.” Ming Hui shook his head and his expression was full of yearning. “If I had the Anti Dragon Claw, even facing a marshal, I would have a chance.”
“But a weapon as vicious as the Anti Dragon Claw can only be subdued by a marshal,” Ming Yu Wei asked.
“Yes, a general touching the Anti Dragon Claw would be to seek death. However, I have a solution.” Ming Hui smiled mysteriously. “If I did not have confidence, would I have made such bold moves? This opportunity fell to us because other people are still wary of the reputation of Great Peace City. No one dared to act so it has benefited us.”
He then said, “Bu Heng is special. He pushed from the shadows and he expected that I will be unable to refuse the Anti Dragon Claw and the Mo Skill Stele. It is a pity that he has no hopes of breaking into marshal level. Otherwise, the Green Yaksha Clan would probably be completely different.”
Ming Yu Wei thought of Bu Heng’s conduct and speech. A hint of admiration flashed through her eyes. “Yes, Bu Heng is probably one of the most outstanding individuals that I have met in these recent years. However, from his tone, it seems that he is very wary of Xiao Mo Ge. We should be careful.”
“In front of a battalion, a group of so-called experts can’t do anything,” Ming Hui said unconcernedly.
Ming Yu Wei was just mentioning it and did not keep Xiao Mo Ge on her mind. She had followed her brother for so many years and saw countless geniuses fall under the mo weapons of their battalion.
This was a era of battalions!
Maybe she was worrying too much.
Looking at her confident brother, she felt that she really was too anxious.
This bandit troupe that Brother had worked so hard to develop had never been defeated before.
Great Peace City had many experts but no battalion. The Ming Bandits were well experienced in facing the so-called experts. This time, there were a lot more of the experts but other than the scale, there was nothing different. What she was worried about was that there would be many more fatalities than previously.
Not everyone in Great Peace City had ran over to Zuo Mo’s side. There was another group gathered in a corner. They were the Young Master Flower Protecting Alliance. They had gathered with their guards.
“The curtain of water is going to disappear tomorrow.” The one who spoke was a young man. His face was ashen.
The other people paled.
“Really? Where did you hear it from?”
The people spoke over each other.
“From the other side.” Wang Shen continued. His expression was grave. “It will be difficult tomorrow.” He suddenly asked, “Where have all your reinforcements travelled to?”
“They should be here soon!”
“Still too early!”
“They will arrive in a week or so!”
At this time, one young master suddenly raised his arm and said, “My uncle sent a message to me three days ago. He said that he might arrive the day after tomorrow.”
Wang Shen became alert. “How many people does he have?”
“He has a battalion but I don’t know the numbers.” This young master said docilely. His surname was Wu and his family background was deep.
Wang Shen couldn’t help but show joy. “Great! The Wu Family Battalion is elite and strong. We will be saved!”
Then some of the other young masters reported that the reinforcements their families sent were not far from Great Peace City and that they had mostly sent battalions.
The Great Peace Treasure Pavilion was a fatal temptation for these families. Their determination could be seen from the fact they had sent battalions.
“But what to do tomorrow?” one person suddenly asked. Everyone became silent and turned to look at Wang Shen.
Wang Shen smiled and said, “Did you forget the other side? They have more people and are a bigger target. The Ming Bandits will first pay attention to them. The harder they fight, the more time they buy us.” He then said sternly, “Everyone, hide well and do not venture out. If you offend the Ming Bandits, we all die!”
Wang Shen did not forget to increase morale. “After a few days, our battalions will arrive and that will be when both sides will be wounded. That is the best situation for us!”
The morale of the group rose and they all became excited. They discussed how to kill the Ming Bandits and Xiao Mo Ge to win the favor of the three princesses.
No one noticed that two people were discussing in a dark corner.
“What do we do now?” Nanmen Xue asked in a deep voice, “The Mo Skill Stele was destroyed by Lin Qian but that Anti Dragon Claw is not ordinary. I don’t believe that Marshal Yu will not be moved.”
The other smiled slightly. “You will know when the time comes.”

Thanks for the chapter
It’s finally hereeee <3
Thanks for the chapter!
lol, i was just seconds late hahah
Oh, those gods damned wasels! both the gentleman (pervert) alliance and those two who tailed ZM from shattered rock jie!
Thank you for the chapter…
Lil’ miss will arrive soon, I guess
Zuo Mo should have think about Pu Yao’s legendary art with the Anti Dragon Claw.
More than half of 20000 is 3000? This math…
How is 15% more than half? *eye*
where did you read that?
It was from before. I have edited it. We were discussing how to deal with the discrepancy and it seems we never resolved it before releasing the chapter.
Big thanks man!!!
Thanks for the chapter
The one that Chen Lian’er kill after wake up should has some relationship with Marshall Yu
‘“It is not that we do not have any advantages. We have more experts than they do. They have more general levels but in terms of combat power, they cannot compare to us. If the experts on our side can work together, there may be a chance for a break through.” —

– One of the many reasons why Zuo Mo is my favourite MC is because he is a realist. Even after making miracles happen here and there and everywhere, he still maintains a clear view of his own weaknesses and weaknesses of others. And while Zuo Mo is not a super tactician like Lil’Miss, he still is very insightful when it comes to person to person communication.
The thing is actually, that ZM isn’t really a miracle worker himself, without his companions and friends, not many if any of the miracles attributed to him could ever have happened. This story is by far one of my favourite because there are so many characters that matter in the plot, not just the main character. Not even just the main character, and a few side characters, no everyone basically matters, which makes the story so much better than so many others.
You’re right! And it is amazing how much I like the whole main cast and most of the side cast too…Usually in webnovels (etc.) I read hastily or skip parts that handle some particular characters I don’t care about…here I read every single line. Though Zuo Mo and Lil’Miss still are my top two with Pu and Wei being close behind as number 3 and 4.
Yes this is one of the things that is great about Zuo Mo and his followers… when not under the control of his ferocious treasure sense…
Zuo Mo transfixed by treasure often does stupid things…(and yet normally succeeds) I do wonder if this miraculous treasure sense will ever be truly explained/justified (I hope it is related to his heritage personally)
But yeah the best thing about this series is how Zuo Mo brings out the potential of his followers which in turn brings out his as well as his other followers potential in a positive feedback loop that overturns the worlds common sense 😀
‘This bandit troupe that Brother had worked so hard to develop had never been defeated before.’
– And you raised the defeat flag. Good job, girl!
‘Not everyone in Great Peace City had ran over to Zuo Mo’s side. There was another group gathered in a corner. They were the Young Master Flower Protecting Alliance.’
– You mean: Suicide Pact Group.
you know what I think. When the bandit attacks and kills those people in the “suicide pact group” they will end up with multiple pissed off battalions surrounding them after the battle. Especially if they kill off those suicide jockeys.
So if the bandits kill off those yahoo’s and Zou Mo can hold out for a day. The bandit problem will solve it’s self.
Dumber : We’ll let Mo Ge’s group get killed off first then we’ll ride in days later. The princesses will love us.
Less Dumb : Ugh, the princesses are part of XMG’s group. Won’t they be dead by then?
Dumberer : Stop talking logic!!!!!
I really want lil’ miss to appear on the horizon with a massive well ordered elite army, and just crush the ming bandits.
You are not alone with that wish! Also, I wonder where Wei Sheng is wandering..? Bandits would make such a good sword testing targets.
him suddenly showing up in the back line of this battle would he hilarious.
“So many people doing their own things … …”
And all of it will fall into Zuo Mo’s pouch, lol.
Thank you for the chapter!
It looks like Lil’ Miss won’t make it for this battle 🙁
I wonder if ge will wind up crushing the fops’ families’ battalions after he’s done with the Ming Bandits?
I suspect the butcher battalion will hold and the bandits will kill the fan boys then the fan boys family battalions will attack the bandits saving Zou Mo.
“I have never had the habit of quietly taking abuse!”
Really what does he call what happened to him in the sword sect than…
He has a bit biased view of the Sword Sect. And as they say memories grow sweeter with time…
I have honestly never heard that saying, but does that apply t bad memories too?
Especially to bad memories. It kind of means that when enough time passes, people tend to forget the bad memories and think that things were so much better in the past. When in fact it could be the opposite.
Alternatively, “absence makes the heart grow fonder”.
I mean he does have a lot of other things on his mind right now
So, I’m expecting a helms’s deep situation here (LOTR reference).
The fights going to be bad and bloody. Several almost-important characters are going to die. Then, just when everyone is starting to run out of juice, Lil Miss comes to save the day!
After Lil Miss comes to the rescue, the other reinforcements will suddenly arrive and make life harder for all the people that actually fought.
Lil Miss or Zuo Mo will have to compete with someone to prove their competency. They’ll win, but something will happen in any case which will give the MC and company incentive to get out of dodge.
Thus onto the new arc. BTW, I fully expect Pu Yao or Wei to have memorized whatever was on the stele. Or maybe even have taken it into Zuo Mo’s consciousness like with the gravestone.
I mean, come on. Weirder things have happened.
well with this story it actually could happen.
I mean he landed in the sealed extinction battle field of all places from a random teleport and met old friends there.
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the new chapter!
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
Looks like Ming bandits have a tasty young flower to pick~
Yep. Bandits. Rich Boys. What more do I have to say?
I mean if Zou Mo was thinking the boys would be the white lambs he is throwing to the wolves.
he should like mark the doors where they live
Hmm.. how about “it’s not stealing if you loot it from a bandit” XD
stealing??? in this situation he could appropriate many things for the “defense” of the city and the princesses.
After his survival he will be taking his “fair” share of the loot and getting the hell out of dodge.
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and Anon! Doesn’t matter what all these people are scheming, when Lil’ Miss and Wei Sheng arrive their plans will all be as fleeting as the clouds.
smh I don’t understand why these fops think that killing ZM is going to impress the Princesses. The Princesses JOINED ZM’s side… did they not see? Even if it was a safety in numbers kind of thing they’ve obviously got positive feelings for ZM. I really do hope the Bandit’s get these boys, though I’m not sure how they will if the boys are hiding.
Thank you for the chapter! 😀
Zou Mo’s group is going to be holding up and defending a part of the city building meger defences and all that. the little boys are hiding in what ever locations they can find.
So? how many times have the bandits had to go in and dig people out of homes and hiding places to get there loot and get there victims to lead them to more treasure. they have a rep and they are good at this leaving no stone unturned is kind of a bandit or a scalper thing.
It will be quite interesting to see how it goes though…. why they might even be seen running to the safety of Zou Mo’s lines only to be denied reentry by the very princess they were perusing.
the little geniuses so smart they almost lost there families a battalion each.
Thanks for the chapter
Thank you for the chapter!

Thanks for the chapter!
Sigh…really, so many people doing their own things…
They formed an alliance to kill/get rid of Zuo Mo so that he wouldn’t steal princesses from them but now they decided to use those same princes as cannon fodder’s … And they even sound happy about it. Little fuckers
This F**ker Marshal Yu will have the same ending as Sovereign Yu
