Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-299
Within the large all, everyone was eyeing Xiao Yan with astonished faces.
They had never thought that this young man who appeared to specialize in
refining medicine would not be any worse than Mu Zhan in terms of combat.
The lightning like exchange from before may have lasted for only a short
moment, but everyone knew the danger involved.
Among the younger generation within the capital, Mu Zhan’s combat
talent could be described as being among the top. There was hardly anyone
of the same age group within the Jia Ma Sacred Empire who could fight
neck to neck with him. This was especially so after he had trained for
two years at the military barracks. The current Mu Zhan had undoubtedly
become much stronger and fiercer compared to before. However, in that
fight earlier, he did not appear to have much of an advantage.
Although, it could be said that Mu Zhan had yet to use all his strength
in this exchange. Not even a Dou Technique had been displayed but no one
forgot that the young man who had an ordinary appearance had similarly
relied entirely on his body’s ability to fight.
“It is really unexpected that Yan Xiao’s combat ability is actually
this good…” The Little Princess watched Xiao Yan with a stunned
expression as she said with surprise. She had very clear knowledge of Mu
Zhan’s talent in terms of combat. However, in the fight just now, Mu
Zhan did not end up beating Yan Xiao until the latter turned into a
miserable state. Instead, the two of them ended up in a draw.
The corner of Liu Ling’s mouth twitched slightly. Having not seen the
scene in his imagination where Xiao Yan was trounced by Mu Zhan, his
heart currently did not feel very well. When he heard the surprise in
Little Princess’s words, his heart became a little unhappy. He said
faintly, “If Mu Zhan unleashed all his strength in the fight, I dare to
say that Yan Xiao would definitely be no match for him.”
“Ke ke, perhaps.” Little Princess was non-committal as she smiled. As
a female, her observation ability was naturally much more meticulous when
compared to Liu Ling who was harboring a grudge. During the time that Mu
Zhan was forced back, she had clearly seen that Mu Zhan’s leg was a
little unnatural when he was stepping back. It appeared that Mu Zhan had
received a little hidden injury in the collision from before.
“Yan Xiao, are you alright?”
After seeing Xiao Yan stepping back, Ya Fei hurriedly came forward and
asked anxiously. As she said those words, her delicate hand grabbed the
sleeve in front of her. Evidently, she did not want him to continue the
“I’m fine.” Xiao Yan smiled. Under the sleeve, his fist, which had
been inserted into it, trembled slightly as he tried to slowly remove the
pain that radiated through it.
“This fellow’s strength is indeed very great. From the looks of it,
he should be around an eight star or even nine star Dou Shi…” Sensing
the pain that was transmitted from his fist, Xiao Yan quietly guessed in
“But… I think that the current him should also be having a hard
time… fire subdues wood. The burning of the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ from my fist would definitely have caused this fellow to suffer
a hidden injury.” Xiao Yan glanced at Mu Zhan’s foot and the corner
of his mouth was lifted into a cold smile.
Mu Zhan stared intently at Xiao Yan with a fierce face. The intense pain
transmitted from his leg caused the corner of his mouth to twitch
repeatedly. The Dou Qi in his body flowed swiftly and wrapped around his
foot, turning it into a pale-green color.
Mu Zhan’s Dou Qi belonged to the wood affinity. This kind of Dou Qi had
some sort of healing properties. Therefore, as the Dou Qi shrouded his
leg, which was not overly seriously injured, once again began to recover.
“Brat, not bad… I didn’t expect that a pampered alchemist like you
would actually know such an aggressive manner of combat.” Mu Zhan
parted his lips and smiled at Xiao Yan, much like a ferocious tiger which
had opened its mouth and bared its fangs, possessing an abundance of a
fierce aura. If this fellow was placed on the battlefield, he would
definitely be a rarely seen ferocious general.
Xiao Yan smiled, but did not speak. The green colored Dou Qi still
shrouded on the surface of his body without the slightest sign of
“But… regardless of who you are. Do not touch the woman I like!”
The smile on his face suddenly disappeared. Mu Zhan let out a stern roar.
A powerful Dou Qi swarmed out from within his body. As the Dou Qi
churned, a somewhat vague Dou Qi Armor had actually, gradually appeared
on his body.
Seeing the Dou Qi Armor on Mu Zhan’s body, Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed.
He did not expect that this fellow was able to summon the Dou Qi Armor
that only a Da Dou Shi was able to possess. Although his armor now was
merely an initial prototype, its defensive strength far exceeded the Dou
Shi’s Dou Qi Cloak.
“This fellow is about to become serious…” Xiao Yan muttered in his
heart. His face gradually became grave. As his mind was racing, a wisp of
‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ was pulled out from the ‘Acceptance
Spirit’ within the vortex. After which, it swiftly passed through the
Qi Paths as Xiao Yan prepared to unleash the terrifying force that
belonged to it at any time.

“Mu Zhan, you lunatic. Stop!” Seeing Mu Zhan, who refused to give up,
Ya Fei was so angry that her pretty face had turned pale.
Mu Zhan ignored Ya Fei’s angry cry. The Dou Qi on the surface of his
body became increasingly dense. A strong force rose from within his body,
suppressing those people with weaker strengths in the hall until their
expressions changed slightly.
“I have said before. I will kill whoever dares to touch you!”
Mu Zhan’s feet stomped on the floor with a bang. Numerous crack lines
began to swiftly spread out from the spot where his feet pushed off just
like a spider web. His body leaned forward slightly. With a cry, his body
turned into a green colored shadow that shot toward Xiao Yan. Wherever he
passed by, a gully that was one foot deep was being extended.
The entire hall had at this moment, turned into a complete mess.
Sensing the ferocious force that was shrouding around Mu Zhan’s body,
Xiao Yan’s expression was serious as he pulled Ya Fei from in front of
him to behind back. At the tip of his finger within his sleeves, a green
colored flame began to dance around strangely…
Mu Zhan’s speed was extremely swift and violent. In the blink of an
eye, he appeared at a spot a short distance in front of Xiao Yan. He
raised his fist high into the air. The fist was completely covered by
sharp green colored thorns, appearing to possess a strong offensive
“Green Wooden Thorn!”
With an oppressive low roar, that fist of Mu Zhan, which was covered in
green colored thorns, was accompanied by a sharp force as it violently
smashed down toward Xiao Yan.
A pair of dark, black eyes coldly watched the fist that was moving
increasingly closer. The oppressive wind flattened the clothes on Xiao
Yan’s body until they were tightly pasted on Xiao Yan’s skin.
Within Xiao Yan’s sleeves, the green colored flame had also withered
with increasing joy under this suppression. The hot energy was swiftly
Just as Xiao Yan was about to use the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ to
counter attack, his eyebrows abruptly knit slightly together as he sensed
something. He immediately stopped his body that was leaning forward. At
the same time a clear cold tender shout sounded within the hall.
“Mu Zhan. Stop now!”
As the tender shout fell, a moon white shadow shot over from another
corner of the hall in a lightning like manner. The body strangely floated
in midair and appeared in front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan glanced at Nalan Yanran’s strange ability to move through
midair from the corner of his eyes. His eyebrows twitched without being
noticed. This woman had improved greatly in three years…
After she swiftly appeared in front of Xiao Yan, Nalan Yanran coldly
watched Mu Zhan, who did not cease his attack, with her pretty face. Her
snow white delicate hand extended out of her spacious sleeve and she
prepared to flick her long narrow finger. Five pale-green colored,
tornadoes surfaced from the tip of her finger, much like five
incomparably sharp green colored fingernails.
The five sharp spiraling winds actually appeared to have tore the space
as they wildly rotated. She flicked her finger and the spiraling wind
shot out. Immediately, they violently shot at Mu Zhan’s fist which was
covered with green colored thorns.
Following the sound of an explosion, waves of wood fragments were shot
out from Mu Zhan’s fist. The ferocious force contained within the
tornadoes directly caused Mu Zhan to take a few steps back. Each time his
feet landed, he would leave a deep footprint on the ground.
When the last footstep landed, Mu Zhan’s arm quivered fiercely. A
shapeless force seeped out of his body and left a deep imprint on the
pillar behind his body.
“Nalan Yanran? Hei, I didn’t expect that you would actually have
become so much stronger after having not met for only two years. Looks
like Sect Leader Yun Yun really put in a lot of effort to teach you.”
Mu Zhan licked the fresh blood on his fist. He ignored this little bit of
pain as he said with surprise.
“Mu Zhan, this is the Nalan clan, not your Mu clan. Mister Yan Xiao is
a guest of our Nalan clan and should not be subjected to your unbridled
behavior!” Nalan Yanran softly cried.
Mu Zhan’s eyes narrowed. He tightened his fist as his gaze swept
through the hall. After which, he paused on Nalan Jie and Nalan Su who
were quickly striding over. Knowing that he had lost the opportunity to
attack Xiao Yan today, he could only helplessly spread out his hand. He
lifted his chin slightly and stared at Xiao Yan, “On account of Nalan
Yanran, I will not cripple you today. But I would advise you to stay away
from Ya Fei in the future. Otherwise…”
“I will take you on anytime…” Xiao Yan coldly smiled and said.
After the exchange from before, he knew that Mu Zhan’s level was
slightly higher than his own. However, if he were to use his hidden
cards, it was difficult to tell who would win or lose.
“You got some backbone. I didn’t expect that the moment I returned to
the capital, I would meet a person whom I can step on. I’m really
excited….” Mu Zhan parted his mouth and grinned at Xiao Yan. The
white teeth of his appeared to be quite dense.
“It requires strength in order to step on someone. Don’t end up
having your feet pierced before you can even step on the person…”
Xiao Yan did not show the slightest weakness or cowering action against
this young man who did not bother to hide his arrogance and domineering
temperament. His giving a tit for tat manner caused everyone to be
“Alright, the both of you should speak less. Today is the Nalan
clan’s gathering. Don’t disturb everyone’s mood.” These two
people who were fighting with each other caused Nalan Yanran to frown
slightly as she helplessly scolded.
Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders. His gaze turned from Mu Zhan’s body
onto the beauty who had her back facing him. His eyes narrowed as his
finger gently flicked within his sleeves. Nalan Yanran’s attack a
moment ago was the first attack that Xiao Yan had seen her use ever since
he had met her. It was like a piece of a jigsaw. For her to be able to
force back Mu Zhan who was fighting equally with himself, this woman’s
strength had improved extremely quickly during the last three years.
Although the Dou Technique that she had displayed just now was not of a
low class, the high class Dou Techniques would not have much use if she
did not have the support of a powerful Dou Qi in this kind of battle
where both parties’ levels were very close.
“The Misty Cloud Sect has spared no effort in grooming her. This Three
Year Agreement will be fun…” Xiao Yan’s gaze paused on the
beautiful curves of Nalan Yanran’s tender body as he muttered in his
