Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-301
“Did you purposefully act so intimate with me to turn me into a shield
to block that fellow?” Xiao Yan suddenly said with a faint smile as he
and Ya Fei came to a stop near the entrance to the hall.
“I’m sorry…” Having her intention exposed by Xiao Yan, Ya Fei’s
pretty face became bright red as she softly apologized, “I have really
become afraid of his pestering. He won’t leave when he is beaten up, he
won’t listen when I lecture him, so I can only do it this way…”
“You… you aren’t angry, are you?” Ya Fei looked at Xiao Yan and
timidly asked. Although acting like this could help her extricate
herself, it ended up resulting in the innocent Xiao Yan being hated by Mu
Zhan without reason.
“Anyways, it’s not the first time that I experienced this…” Xiao
Yan smiled bitterly and shook his head.
Hearing this, Yan Fei pursed up her red lips and smiled gently. However,
she did not dare to speak, resulting in the atmosphere between the two of
them to pleasantly become silent.
“*Cough*… why don’t you go and walk around. I need to go and help
Grandfather Nalan to complete today’s poison removing session.” A
long while later, Xiao Yan coughed softly and in an offhanded manner,
lifted a cup of red wine from the silver plate a female servant was
carrying passed. He tasted it a little before randomly pressing it into
Ya Fei’s hand. With a smile, he then walked toward the side door of the
Standing in the original spot, Ya Fei saw Xiao Yan off with her eyes. She
gently shook the bright red wine within the wine cup. Under the
reflection of the wine, her lovely face became even more red and more
Ya Fei lifted the wine cup and headed out of the hall. She stood beside a
pillar and shook the wine cup. As she recalled the aggressive and
imposing manner that Xiao Yan had in the fight earlier, she become a
little confused. It had only been over a year since they last saw each
other. The innocent young man back then had actually transformed into one
who had such confidence.
“Ya Fei, what are you thinking about?” An old laughter suddenly
sounded behind her. Primer Tengshan then walked over with a smile and
“Ah? It’s nothing.” Having her thoughts interrupted, Ya Fei was
shocked and hurriedly replied.
“Ha ha…” Primer Tengshan smiled and slowly walked forward. He spoke
with a deeper meaning in his words, “What do you think of that little
fellow, Yan Xiao?”
“He’s not bad.” Hearing the words he said, Ya Fei’s comment
immediately left her mouth. Quickly following it, however, she appeared
to have sensed something and hurriedly stopped her mouth. Her eyes stared
at Primer Tengshan and softly asked, “What is the meaning of First
“Haha, if you feel that he is satisfactory, you can become a little
more bold. I don’t have any intention of opposing…” Primer Tengshan
smiled and said.
Hearing the meaning behind his words. a bright red color immediately
stained her cheeks, as though she was a drunk person from having too much
wine. She waved her hand and hurriedly said, “First Elder, I don’t
have those kinds of feelings for Yan Xiao. He is just an ordinary friend
“If you don’t have feelings, you can cultivate them…” Primer
Tengsgan smiled and said with a deeper meaning, “You should also know
that as a member of a large clan like us, there is seldom any wedding
agreement where both parties are willing. The clan is focused on
interest. If one can find a person whom you don’t dislike and the clan
doesn’t oppose, that is a very fortunate thing.”
“I will tell you something that will cause you to be quite sad. Before
the appearance of Yan Xiao, if the clan’s internal elders were to vote
to choose the person most suitable for you, I’m afraid that it would
have been likely for Mu Zhan to receive the most of votes. This is
because from the two large clan’s prospective, a marriage is something
that benefits both parties…”
Hearing this, Ya Fei’s hand that was holding the wine cup suddenly
“Ah.” Following Ya Fei’s reaction, Primer Tengshan sighed. He
patted her shoulder and walked back into the hall.
With her teeth biting on her red lips, Ya Fei lowered her head to eye the
red wine in the cup. That face which was enchanting, stunningly
creature-like, had at the moment, contained a faint sadness that would
break people’s heart.
Ya Fei knew that Primer Tengshan was speaking the truth. Although being
born in such a large clan would enable one to obtain a high status and
position that countless people yearned for, some things could not be
achieved, one would also lose many things at the same time. She did not
have Nalan Yanran’s training talent or good luck. Due to her status in
the Misty Cloud Sect, the latter could easily escape the restraints that
the clan gave her. Therefore back then, she did not have any fear as she
went to the Xiao clan to cancel the engagement. Ya Fei also knew that she
did not possess such ability.
Ya Fei linked her hands in front of her chest. She gently sat on the
stone stairs. The night breeze came one wave after another, causing her
heart to feel a little cold.
She lifted her head and eyed the bright moon in the sky. A long while
later, Ya Fei’s alluring eyes suddenly bent slightly, much like a
fox’s eyes, flashing both shrewdness and temptation.
“If I don’t want to be controlled by the clan then… I can only
control the clan…” Ya Fei softly whispered as her pretty eyes stared
at the red wine in the cup. Within it, the enchanting and moving
reflection appeared to quietly have something change from that moment…
“I don’t have the training talent of Nalan Yanran but the Primer clan
is a business clan. With my ability, getting to the position of the
person in charge does not appear to be too difficult…” Her delicate
finger flicked against the wine cup. A clear sound that echoed. Being
able to become the person in charge of the Primer Auction House
Headquarters at such an age, Ya Fei’s talent in business and human
resource management was something that could not be doubted.
After all, this world was not lacking people who had thousands or tens of
thousands of loyal strong people as their subordinates despite not having
even the strength to slaughter a chicken.
Hearing the clear sound, a faint arc formed on the corner of Ya Fei’s
mouth. She was enchanting and moved with a natural charm. At this moment,
she was undoubtedly even more beautiful compared to before.
Just as an unknown thing was sprouting in Ya Fei’s heart, a black robe
gently covered her from her behind. A familiar gentle voice caused the
heart of this woman, which was most sensitive at this moment, to secretly
move a little.
“The weather is cold. Aren’t you afraid of getting sick…”
Ya Fei abruptly turned her head around. She blankly eyed the face which
had appeared extremely ordinary after a change in appearance. In her
trance-like state, the tip of her nose felt a little sour.
Ya Fei gently sniffed. Her hands pulled at the black robe and her
delicate body was squeezed into it. A faint warm feeling shrouded her
spirit which had turned cold with one sentence from Primer Tengshan.
Her long eyelashes blinked a little as she smiled and asked, “Have you
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded, his gaze swept across the enchanting and
moving, pretty face. He felt somewhat strange. For some unknown reason,
he realized that the current Ya Fei seemed to have something more
compared to earlier… moreover… it caused people to be even more
reluctant to shift their gazes…
“Are you alright?” Xiao Yan asked doubtfully.
“I’m very well…” Ya Fei blinked her eyes saucily at Xiao Yan as
she smiled and said.
“Oh.” As he nodded, Xiao Yan lazily let out a yawn. He glanced at the
hall which had remained noisy and could not help but shake his head.
These people can really endure such a torment…
“Forget it, I cannot take it any longer. I am going back, are you
coming?” Xiao Yan yawned once again and randomly asked Ya Fei.
“Ah…” Hearing this, Ya Fei was about to shake her head to reject
him. However, when her hand gently stroked the black robe on his body,
she hesitated for a moment before nodding her head and agreeing.
Ya Fei stood up. The two of them had just planned to leave when Xiao
Yan’s somewhat weary expression suddenly changed. He immediately turned
his head and eyed the north-west direction of the capital. There were two
terrifying presences that had suddenly shot up to the sky.
“Hai Bo Dong? This old fellow has been missing for two days. Why is he
fighting with someone? From the other person’s Qi, it appears that his
strength isn’t lower than Hai Bo Dong…” Having fought together with
Hai Bo Dong, Xiao Yan was quite familiar with his Qi. Immediately, he
managed to identify it. The reason that his expression changed further
was that there was another terrifying presence that was not weaker than
Hai Bo Dong.
During the time that Xiao Yan was mumbling, two figures abruptly shot out
from within the hall. Those two that had immediately appeared in front of
Xiao Yan, were Nalan Jie and Primer Tengshan who had similarly sensed
Behind Nalan Jie, Mu Zhan, Nalan Yanran and the others also came filing
out. Their expressions were filled with shock as they eyed the north-west
“Dou Huang?” Nalan Jie’s and Primer Tengshan’s expression were
filled with seriousness as they eyed each other.
Hearing Nalan Jie’s and Primer Tengshan’s voices, the faces of Nalan
Yanran and the rest became shocked. Dou Huang? People of that level were
basically at the peak of the empire. It was unexpected that there would
be two of them that suddenly appeared.
“Let’s go and take a look.”
Nalan Jie and Primer Tengshan spontaneously shot up into the sky. Two
pairs of gorgeous Dou Qi wings swiftly agglomerated behind them. After
which, they turned into two flowing lights and swiftly flew toward the
spot where the aura had erupted from. They could not help but carefully
handle this matter where strong people of such class had suddenly
appeared in the imperial city.
“Hee hee, let’s also go and take a look. Dou Huang…”
Mu Zhan’s face let out a fanatic heat as he eyed the spot where Nalan
Jie and Primer Tengshan disappeared. His feet stepped off the ground and
his body swiftly shot to the roof. Immediately, he became like a
grasshopper as he began leaping and charging on the roof of the
buildings. Behind him, Nalan Yanran, Liu Ling, and the others exhibited
their respective great powers and followed closely.
A fight between Dou Huangs was not something that one could see just
because they wanted to…
TL: Something that didn’t occur at one’s whim
Xiao Yan frowned slightly. Hai Bo Dong was his protective charm while he
was making the trips to the Misty Cloud Sect. Therefore, nothing can
happen to him before make the final trip. Otherwise, if Xiao Yan had to
go to the Misty Cloud Sect, that huge being, alone, it would be something
that would cause him quite a headache.
“You remain here and be careful. I will also go over and take a
look…” Xiao Yan mused for a moment before turning around and told Ya
Fei by the side. The latter also knew the seriousness of the matter and
obediently nodded her head. She did not say anything to stop him.
Xiao Yan’s feet pressed gently on the ground and leaped up onto the
roof in a supple manner. His back trembled slightly as he summoned the
Purple Cloud Wings in front of everyone’s stunned gazes.
With her red lips opened slightly as she watched Xiao Yan call out the
wings, Ya Fei’s pretty eyes were filled with disbelief…
The wings flapped and Xiao Yan’s body instantly turned into a ray of
light. After which, he used all his effort and shot in the north-west
“Dou Qi Transformation Wings?”
When Mu Zhan, who was leaping on the roof, heard the breaking wind sound
from behind him, he hurriedly turned his head around to take a look.
Immediately, he foolishly watched Xiao Yan who was flapping his wings,
swiftly fly passed.
“That fellow is of the Dou Wang class? How can it be?”
Mu Zhan was like an idiot as he stood on the rooftop, eyeing Xiao Yan
blankly as the latter disappeared. A long while later, he turned his head
around, only to realize that Nalan Yanran and the others behind him also
had stunned faces.
“We’ve seen a ghost…” In the dark black night sky, the few young
people uncertainly and angrily scolded themselves.
