Ostentatious Zhao Yao ~ Ch 48.01

Hello dear readers!

How’s everyone doing? Staying healthy, I hope!

I’ve been trying to clean up the garden but the rain won’t stop and the weather is chilly after the rain, so I don’t want to leave the house. I did do indoor gardening, though, so my green thumbs are happy.

Anyways, here’s the first part to chapter 48. Also, I’m going to go ahead and post some of the earlier chapters that I translated a while back. There’s like three, I think. I was going to post it after I got to chapter 79 but that’s still a long ways away.

Enjoy the read!

Was it Mo Qing who made Sima Rong use the Mechanical Magic Technique to arrange for the wooden-headed puppets to be here?

As I thought about it for a moment, I felt that this plan was very clever.

Xu Zhi’s body was strange. Magical auras in her body dispersed very quickly, so if others were to use magic on her, then it would disappear before it gets a chance to work. Unless she encountered Mo Qing, the former me, or the type of demon or celestial cultivators with an aura that was formidable enough to continuously cause great damage to her. Otherwise, ordinary people, such as those who were present today, when fighting each other, would still rather look after their faces than to show their true abilities, so basically, they were not a threat to her.

Magic was useless against Xu Zhi, but in return the result was also the same for her, cultivating magic was extremely difficult for her, circulating the internal aura in her body was hard to do, even learning the introductory Defensive Sword Technique was also a laborious effort. 

So up until now, she still could not learn the Instantaneous Travel Technique, which was why she had to jump everywhere, back and forth.

If she was permitted to work together with the other Dark Guards, then demonic energy would be flowing all over the place. Not to mention that big goals would not get accomplished, instead she would burden the Dark Guards’ actions. But the wood-headed puppets were different, like Xu Zhi, they had to physically fly. Their bodies were equipped with internal gears, so they could be propelled without needing too much demonic energy. Thereby, they were less likely to attract the celestial cultivators attention, making it convenient to do surprise attacks.

So just as expected, Xu Zhi took the lead to wreak havoc during the gathering, while the wood-headed puppets silently emerged without a sound, catching and killing the celestial cultivators unawares.

In the midst of these sects’ disputes, the wooden-headed puppets helped divide a lot of the burden with the people of Qian Chen Pavilion and Xuan Yu Hall for a while. At the same time, Shen Qian Jin also ordered the disciples of Guan Yu Tower to protect Qin Qian Xian.

Previously, Nan Yue Cult had cultivated the Mechanical Magic Technique, but now, they were all exterminated. Therefore, the only person who perfected this Mechanical Magic Technique was Sima Rong, who they had actually deprived of the right to walk. Allowing Nan Yue Cult to participate in this meeting with the Ten Great Celestial Sects in this way, I momentarily savored the karma. Included among this karma, was something that could also cause someone to feel very rueful.

In such chaos as this one, Guan Yu Tower’s disciple, who was holding the mirror, had no choice but to rush about busily. The image in the mirror became fuzzy and wobbly, while the angle was swaying back and forth, making it difficult for people to see clearly.

But it was in this kind of chaos that I suddenly saw a few dark shadows suspended up high in that fuzzy-looking, wobbly-looking sky. Just when I looked down, I immediately saw Qin Qian Xian was letting every celestial sect disciple, who was attacking him, off leniently. He simply placed a Bodhi seal on their foreheads, making them fall into a coma. However, this way of fighting was a total waste of time.

I commanded Zhi Yan to say: “Tell Xu Zhi to take Qin Qian Xian away.” 

As soon as I said this, Zhi Yan did not even get the chance to open her mouth, when those dark shadows in the sky suddenly moved. Right at this moment, Xu Zhi was fighting against the grandmaster of Tian Xuan Sect. Tian Xuan Sect practiced both internal and external cultivation. Besides magical techniques, their martial arts were generally regarded as the first or the second best among the people of the Ten Great Celestial Sects. Xu Zhi fought with him, and after a short time, she still could not get away. In the swaying mirror, I looked towards Qin Qian Xian, but I could not see his facial expression. However, I did see his figure spin around to evade the female sword that had suddenly dropped down from the sky.

However, there was still another sword that unexpectedly flew towards Qin Qian Xian, catching him off guard. It was inevitable for him to avoid, so his only course of action was to smash the female sword into pieces. As I had expected, Qin Qian Xian indeed wanted to shatter that female sword into fragments.


However, suddenly in this moment!

Liu Cang Ling’s body that was already in a dead-faint on the ground abruptly moved, as if he was suddenly controlled by someone! He stood between Qin Qian Xian and that female sword! Zhi Yan became alarmed and involuntarily shouted: “Brother Cang Ling!”

Qin Qian Xian immediately stopped his hand, his palm that had almost landed on Liu Cang Ling’s body withdrew. His internal essence rushed back into his body, causing his body to tremble slightly, and yet, this was not over…

Unexpectedly, Liu Su Ruo manipulated the female sword, stabbing straight into Liu Cang Ling’s back! It mercilessly pierced through his body and went straight for Qin Qian Xian’s neck! This blow was so ruthless that it was unimaginable!

Just a moment ago, in order to not hurt Liu Cang Ling, Qin Qian Xian forcibly retracted his palm and was injured by his internal essence. So this blow caught him quite unexpectedly that he could not avoid it, and still managed to witness the female sword piercing his neck with one stroke. 


As the tip of the sword went in, it immediately absorbed his blood, causing the entire blade of the sword to turn red. When the female sword pierced Qin Qian Xian’s neck, someone suddenly grabbed the sword hilt. The power exerted forcibly stopped the female sword.


Xu Zhi’s legs landed on the ground, dragging the female sword away, as if the power exerted was the strength needed to pull a mountain. She violently smashed the female sword to the ground and the blade immediately broke into two pieces. Then the already absorbed blood of Qin Qian Xian immediately spilt all over the ground..


“Who dares to touch him!” Xu Zhi loudly shouted, causing the surroundings to immediately shake as if there was a fluctuating aura passing by.

I raised an eyebrow, thinking that in these past few years, Xu Zhi had learned a lot of things while she was in those strange places like overseas, on the Immortal Island. She could actually control her aura for a brief amount of time.

Shaking all the surrounding people away, Xu Zhi turned her head to glance at Qin Qian Xian. It was unclear why she suddenly furrowed her eyebrows, but with a slightly unhappy expression, she took two steps towards Qin Qian Xian and stood before him. She absolutely did not care whether Qin Qian Xian was willing or not; she immediately placed her arm around his neck, stood on her tiptoes, opened her mouth, and licked his neck. She licked away the blood that he had shed.


It was obvious that she used a lot of force to lick his neck.

Qin Qian Xian was startled.


Everyone who saw this scene was stunned.

Only I remained indifferent.

I knew that ever since I picked Xu Zhi up, she had a certain habit. Whenever she got scratched by a sword, she was fond of licking the wound just like a small animal, so that the wound would heal faster. Sometimes when I leave to handle affairs and return, I would have a small wound on my hand, Xu Zhi would snatch my hand and help me lick it. I simply viewed this as the little animal was acting coquettishly.

After recruiting Gu Han Guang, the injuries on my body were dealt with in a timely manner. I was already bandaged up, even if she wanted to lick, she could not do it anymore.
