Chapter Six Hundred and Eighty Eight – Rock

In order to spend more time cultivating, Zuo Mo and the others chose to ride a large mo steed.

Fully grown Sky Sharks were about nine hundred zhang long. Their bodies were strong and was able to resist the harsh wind in the sky. In some regions, it was also used as a combat unit. Its vicious personality made it suited for battle. It was a mo beast that lived in the sky, the void, and the chaotic turbulence. There were rarely things that were a threat for them.

Its enormous body meant that the inside of its body was large enough to be used as accommodations. It was a good choice for long journeys.

Zuo Mo did not lack money so they had rented a whole courtyard to themselves.

Rather than say it was a yard, it was a residence made from three little houses. In order to make it easy for travellers to cultivate, there were blood pools that were used for cultivating mo physiques inside the yard.

It was a pity that the blood pool was not of any use to Zuo Mo now. He only hoped that no one would disturb him.

If Ceng Lian’er was alone, she definitely would not cultivate so madly. However, she was alongside Zuo Mo. Whenever Zuo Mo started to cultivate sun shen power, the energies in her body would uncontrollably move and her moon shen power would also circulate. She had to follow Zuo Mo’s rhythm in cultivating or risk suffering side-effects.

Only at this time did she truly understand how freakish Zuo Mo was.

He seemed to never know exhaustion. He used any time he had to cultivate. It was fortunate that Zuo Mo had many things he needed to practice such as the three powers so it gave her time to breathe, but even so she still felt that she couldn’t keep up.

Yet when she finally had a day of rest and inspected herself, she found to her shock that in a few short days her shen power had grown by a tenth!

In this whole day of rest, she was immersed in deep shock.

Her deep eyes were full of emotion.

Zuo Mo did not have the time to dwell on his emotions. He squeezed everything he could out of his time. He needed to face each battle with all of his power.

Zuo Mo panted, his body was soaked with sweat. His fingers that dangled at his side were convulsing.

He had just finished a practicing high difficulty finger movements. The ling power he had was almost completely used up. Right now, he was able to control the change between shen power and the three powers.

Of the three powers, his weakest was ling power and this was the main focus of his practice.

In the cultivation plan that Pu Yao had given him, the practice of spells was a very important part.

[Bowstring Finger Spell] [Five Element Communication] [Mist Raindrop Sword Scripture] [Hundred Dhyana Sutra Records] … …

All of these spells focused on transformation. Zuo Mo had originally thought that his finger motions were pretty good, but when he saw the requirements for the [Bowstring Finger Spell], his scalp turned numb and his face went ashen.

Cultivating this each time was alike being tortured.

But Zuo Mo managed to persist. His ling power had grown greatly and become even more pure, easier to control, and more powerful.

Even though it was still far from satisfying Pu Yao, Zuo Mo still felt a clear improvement, especially in the advance of his shen power.

His shen power became more malleable and directing it was like moving a part of his body. Some blurry details seemed to resolve themselves and he could now unconsciously carry out some actions.

Zuo Mo, Pu Yao, and Wei were all very motivated. This quick advancement showed that their thoughts were in the right direction.

In exploring unknown cultivation, what was most important was direction. If the direction was wrong and ran counter to the answer, the consequences were not just detrimental but could easily cause injury. If the general direction was right, then the details was just a matter of hard work and experience.

After about ten breaths, Zuo Mo’s breathing finally recovered. The sweat on his face disappeared. Zuo Mo’s recovery abilities were very strong due to his powerful mo physique. This was an important reason that he had managed to persist.

Turning his face, he saw A Gui sitting silently beside him. Zuo Mo’s gaze became much gentler.

At this time, a ruckus sounded outside the door.

Zuo Mo couldn’t help but frown.

It had to be said that the mo’s sound blocking techniques were lacking compared to the xiuzhe. The use of mo matrices was far behind seal scripts, and there were not many that understood the use of mo matrices.

Zuo Mo’s gaze flickered to the room on the left. His gaze focused. Ceng Lian’er was at an crucial time in her cultivation!

The sound outside did not show signs of quieting down and became even louder.

Zuo Mo sent a sound-blocking spell towards Ceng Lian’ers room and then stood to walk out.

Opening the gates, he saw a circle of people outside.

“I said that I’m not selling to you!” The youth that was speaking had an angry expression as he tightly gripped a stone in his hand.

“Hahaha, you won’t sell? Ye doesn’t have the patience to quibble with you. Even if you don’t want to sell it, you have to!” The one who poke was a youth dressed grandly. His expression was proud as he played with a short staff in his hand. The short staff was inlaid with all kinds of precious stones and it could be seen to be extremely valuable at a glance.

There was a group of guards surrounding the youth that was selling stones with maliciousness in their eyes.

Zuo Mo did not have any sense of justice. If this was another time, he wouldn’t even look twice. But now, Ceng Lian’er was at a crucial juncture. It would be troublesome if she was disturbed now.

When his gaze flashed across the stone, Zuo Mo’s pupils suddenly shrank.

The stone was about the size of a basket, completely blue, and threaded with lines of blood red. It seemed slightly eerie.

That stone … … was interesting!

He felt a ripple of shen power from it. This was extremely weak. If it wasn’t that Zuo Mo’s shen power had become purer recently, he probably would have had a difficult time detecting it.

This was the first time Zuo Mo had encountered something that contained natural shen power. Was there things that contained shen power like how jingshi contained ling power?




At this time, a guard said darkly, “Buddy, for one stupid stone, we’re giving you twenty thousand mobei! Know your limits, if you anger our master, you won’t get even one mobei!”

The youth with the stone had a flushed face. “I only said I’ll trade, not sell, I’m only trading for mo weapons! Brigadier mo weapon!”

“Brigadier mo weapon? Ha, you’re dreaming! You dare to ask so much of ye, you don’t want to live … …” the young master snorted coldly.

At this time, a voice suddenly interrupted. “I’ll trade with you.”

Everyone immediately quieted.

The stone-selling youth was not very excited. He looked suspiciously. “Brigadier mo weapon, only brigadier mo weapons!”

This person was dressed normally and was not attention catching. A person like this did not look like one that would have a brigadier mo weapon. Even the lowest of the brigadier mo weapons cost over thirty thousand mobei on the market.

Zuo Mo did not waste words and took out several mo weapons.

“This black sickle is brigadier level, it is formed from killing energy. With every person killed, the killing energy will increase. When the killing energy accumulates to a certain level, it can form fiendish souls. This Heaven Azure Dagger-Ax is brigadier level. It is as light as a feather, suited to fast attacks. It can rip through the void. This blood fiend axe is one hundred and eighty thousand catties heavy. It is suited to power-type mo physiques. When it is swung, an axe fiend will form. Which one do you want?”

When Zuo Mo introduced each mo weapon, he would wave it and show it. He had many mo weapons. They were all taken from the mo experts that he had defeated before.

The crowd around immediately shifted. Many people’s eyes became burning hot. Even the guards were moved. All of them had expressions of greed.

Each of these three brigadier level mo weapons were all fine ones that were above fifty thousand mobei. The three articles together were one hundred and fifty thousand mobei. The shock they gave could be imagined.

The stone-selling youth stilled. From when he got the stone, he wanted to trade for a brigadier mo weapon but it had been over half a year, and he still hadn’t managed to trade for one. At many times, he had thought that his price was too high. When there were really three mo weapons in front of him, he didn’t know what to do.

Seeing the other dumbstruck, Zuo Mo could only remind the other, “Which one do you want?”

The stone-selling youth seemed to wake up and rushed out, “I want the Sky Azure Dagger-Axe!”

Zuo Mo did not waste words. He waved his hand and the Sky Azure Dagger-Axe flew in front of the youth. With a wave of his hand, that stone came out of the youth’s arms and flew into his hands.

“Where did you get the stone?” Zuo Mo asked.

“The deep abyss of Hundred Energy Jie.” The youth hugged the Sky Azure Dagger-axe after saying this with an excited expression.

A brigadier level mo weapon! It really was a brigadier level mo weapon!

Having gotten the mo weapon of his dreams, the youth felt as though he was dreaming.

Hundred Energy Jie!

Zuo Mo knew the name. It was one of the jie on the way to Nether Spring Jie. He had remembered all of them and this Hundred Energy Jie was among them.

At this time, a dark voice sounded.

“Young Master, this one remembers that the compound was robbed a few days ago and lost many mo weapons. This Sky Azure Dagger-axe is among them!”

The one that spoke was one of the young master’s guards. His eyes showed greed that he wasn’t able to disguise.

The furious young master immediately understood and snorted coldly. “No wonder I find these mo weapons so familiar, they are from my compound! Come, capture this thief!”

The guards immediately surrounded Zuo Mo.

Zuo Mo’s expression was calm but he was slightly surprised. He hadn’t thought that he would encounter such an absurd matter. At this time, he detected movement from the yard. Ceng Lian’er had finished cultivating.

Zuo Mo immediately lost the last qualm he had.

He grinned and showed snowy-white teeth. He smiled and said, “A few days ago, some thieves sneaked into my residence, and stole many things from me. So it was you!”

The guards had shocked expressions. They had done things like planting evidence and accusing others many times but it was the first time they were accused.

Before they could react, the figure in front of them disappeared.

A guard was hit with a slap on his face before he could react. Pia. His body seemed to be hit by a rampaging rhinoceros and was sent flying. He fell to the ground unconscious.

Zuo Mo’s control of the three powers in his body had increased and so had his control of his mo physique.

His figure flashed and he appeared like a ghost in front of another guard. His left hand shook and the shadow of his hand was like whip that accurately hit that shocked face.

Another figure was sent flying!

Zuo Mo’s figure was lightning fast.

In a flash, none of the guards were left standing. The entire area was silent. Everyone was shocked by the chaotic attacks.

The young master’s face was as white as paper. “I … … I am from Horizontal Jie’s Ji Family … …. You … … you … …”

“Do you know ye’s nickname?” Zuo Mo walked towards the young master.

“What … … what name?” The young master was like a frightened rabbit.

“Scalping Zombie!” Zuo Mo snarled


The young master fainted from too much fear.

The other really had no resistance to fear. Zuo Mo shook his head. He walked next to the young master and, with practiced motions, stripped them of their possessions.

Scalping always made him feel good.


Translator Ramblings: Ceng Lian’er gets pulled along into all this … … none of this is her fault. And now she’s running for her life.

      1. Us readers from the old times: HAHAHA SCALP THEM ALL SCALPING ZOMBIES
        Readers that started reading recently: ok but really no need for the yelling guys
        Us readers from the old times: WE CALLED IT DIDNT WE?!?!

      2. 🎶 Scalp, scalp, scalp them all, up and down the jie…*sings out of tune, while cleaning weapons* 🔫🔫

  1. to translator comment.
    she did initiate the paired cultivation giving Zou Mo no choice in bringing her along on his adventures. So saying she has no fault in being here is a bit much.

    1. also got to get in on the glorious return of the scalping Zombie.
      ALL HAIL THE ZOMBIE SCALPER. may he scalp many young masters during his resurgence.

      1. He will, with or without encouragement. And I would say Scalping Zombie never left. Jos triumphs just have been overshadowed By recent events. Since Zuo Mo scaps by instinct, it’s in his blood to do so, so he doesn’t even notice he does it. Scalping to Zuo Mo is like stealing to a person suffering from kleptomania, inresistable…

      2. He does resist his urges in front of his subordinates though. he tries to be a little respectable/honorable. Then fails completely on occasions to numerous to count. Cough black mail and moi bi green peace city. Cough striping those who attacked the golden city in little mountain jie.

    2. The cultivation thing happened on accident. She decided to follow him because it couldn’t be erased and if he died, it would kill her. While if she followed her cultivation would be quicker. She DID however hassle him about cultivating more when they were in the mo city. She got exactly what she asked for now.

      1. That’s what I was thinking when I read it. “You asked for it, lady!” hehe She probably thinks back to those days of nagging and wants to shut her past self up hehe

      2. Life is full of regrets😌 That should teach her to be careful what she wishes for…Though I guess it is understandable that she didn’t know what kind of cultivation freak she got caught up with. Lil’Mo is one of a kind💖

    3. She didn’t initiate it. Zuo Mo initiated it when he was examining her on her sick bed.

      1. I may be remembering wrong but didn’t she finnish the pairing thus forcing him to take her along. I would think a pairing like there’s requires active participation from both parties.

    4. The choices were:
      1. Finish the pairing, or
      2. Both die

      Now imagine waking up to that choice. Purposefully or no, Zuo Mo did it – it’s reeeeeeeally hard to make Lian’er the bad guy here; so it’s amazing how many people in the comments want to :p

    1. Next? I thought boss got him first when he was stripping the semi-corpses.

  2. Scalping zombie is back..
    Does this mean that young master family will get robbed

    1. Sweep ‘me clean not leaving anything in the house even feather on Chicken and fur on dog isn’t save

    1. lol greed is one of the 7 deadly sin, it make you loss your mind. dude brigadier level mo weapon is nothing to zuo mo at this point, so it dont really count as a powerful weapon. i think at this point the guard camp all have “brigadier level mo weapon” you know since they just destroy about 3 large battalion, this doesn’t including the loot they got when they wipe out temple battalion.

    2. 1-Greed
      2- Reason
      Pick one
      Also, they have many people, they probably though that they can use number to defeat him.

  3. Others go fishing for stress relief…Zuo Mo goes casually scalping. And let’s make a bet that stone is some ancient material that majorly helps cultivating shen power or is connected to Mo’s King business…or some other thing that helps Zuo Mo on his road to be the ruler of the universe😄 That would be Zuo Mo’s type of luck😁

  4. Thank you for translating. With Ge it (was) always hard to tell because of his wodden features, but I just knew he was silently pleased with his nickname!

  5. I came here to read WoC starring Zuo Mo, and instead I got… Batman.
    Nice chapter.

  6. Anyone else picturing ZM in a long raincoat walking up to this guy pulling one side open showing a bunch of weapons and asking him if he’s interested in a bargain weapon?

  7. Thanks for the chapter!
    Ceng Lian’er is greatest accidental waifu. Not irritating, and usefull.

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

    The Scalping Zombie Returns!
    …coming soon to your nearest rich young masters~

  9. Thanks for the chapter!
    FINALLY! ZM finally have time to do what he loves the most, after A Gui, no need for batalions or jie managment, scalbing fat sheeps are the best! 😀

  10. “Do you know ye’s nickname?” Zuo Mo walked towards the young master.

    “What … … what name?” The young master was like a frightened rabbit.

    “Raping Zombie!” Zuo Mo snarled


    The young master fainted from too much fear.

    1. Not cool
      This calls Zuo MO’s taste into question. We all know he has only 3 loves
      1 jingshi
      2 A Gui
      3 pretty feet
      The order can be debated.

      Also I just rediscovered the lil smiley at the very bottom of the site and it is still cute.

      1. Oooh, the smiley is cute indeed! (I thought I was the only one to notice it)

  11. lol, its been a long time since we last saw Scalping Zombie 😉

    I wonder what made them so brave. Anyone that can take out three weapons like that and trade them as if they were nothing is not likely to be weak or poorly connected.

    She would have been running for her life regardless eventually. She didn’t exactly do a good job of hiding her shen power after all. At least this way she has a good chance of surviving long enough to become too strong to hunt.

  12. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! It’s good that he’s cultivating so hard now, but it’s also good to indulge in hobbies to de-stress every now and then.

  13. Wheeeeeeeeee!
    Scalping Zombie in da hood!
    ─────────── (….◕​ ‿ ◕.…)
    ───────── oOO——`​♥´——OOo
    ───── Foя тнє cнαpтєя ──────

  14. HE’S BAAACK! *____*

    (not an old reader, but really missed it)

    Thanks for the chapter (and whole translation)
