Zui Wu Dao. Part 1 -Chapter 2

To my dear readers,

I have translated Chapter 2 for you guys! I am trying to minimize the 3rd person usage. They keep doing that in the book, but it sounds ridiculous in English. I hope it flows better now. This chapter took me a very long time to translate, but I think the fight scene is worth it! I hope you guys like it.

Feel free to comment!
