Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-313
“Tsk tsk. So it’s him.” Fa Ma suddenly laughed softly and coldly.
“Old Fa, do you recognize him?” Haring Fa Ma’s words, Xiao Yan
“Hee hee, I recognize him as the deputy chairman of the Chu Yun
Empire’s Alchemist Association. His name seems to be called Yan Li.
Back then, I met with him once. This fellow has quite a great reputation
within the Chu Yun Empire. Additionally, this fellow is a great advocate
for alchemists and ‘Poison Masters’ integrating together. Due to
this, he has the trust of the poison masters in the Chu Yun Empire.
Therefore, he is a very strong successor to become the next Chu Yun
Empire’s Alchemist Association chairman.” Fa Ma said.
“It is just that I did not expect this fellow would actually dare to
come to the Jia Ma Empire alone. It really is a case of skilled people
tending to be really bold.” Fa Ma smiled faintly and said.
“What do we do next?” Hai Bo Dong carelessly asked.
“Let’s wait and see first.” Fa Ma mused for a moment before
indicating for the few of them to wait patiently and not be rash.
Xiao Yan nodded his head slightly and ceased speaking. He then lowered it
and focused his gaze on the large man within the room. At the moment, his
heart had also quietly sighed in relief. It was fortunate that this
fellow was not someone who was only seventeen. Looking at his appearance,
he was likely at least thirty seven years old. Although such a talent
could be considered outstanding, the level of his potential that Xiao Yan
recognized in his heart had suddenly descended by quite a few times
compared to before.
As the gray robed person within the room turned from a tender young man
into a middle aged large person, a forceful Qi had also came splashing
out of his body. That force was strong and it actually faintly had some
of the greatness of a Dou Wang class strong person. It was likely that
this middle aged large man’s level was at least around a seven star Dou
“Hu, it is somewhat more comfortable to return to my original
appearance. At the very least, I can unleash the full 100% of my
ability.” The middle aged man smiled with satisfaction and said faintly
as he sensed the surging force circulating within his body.
As his hand touched his face, the middle aged man seemed to have recalled
something. He suddenly walked quickly toward the side of the bed. From
behind the bed curtains, he found a black thread and he gently pulled it.
When Xiao Yan, who was on the roof, saw the large middle-aged man pulled
the black thread, his expression changed slightly. He abruptly moved his
sight and his gaze stared intently at the bells which had been shocked to
powder by Jia Lao earlier. At that spot, the black thread suddenly moved.
Not only did the bells fail to ring, but the black thread was also pulled
“Dammit!” As Xiao Yan muttered in his heart, the room was quiet for
an instant before a stern cry suddenly sounded, “Who is above?”
“Do it.” Hearing the cry, Jia Lao laughed coldly. He waved his hand
and his body abruptly disappeared. That terrifying speed caused Xiao
Yan’s eyes to narrow.
Following behind Jia Lao, Hai Bo Dong’s and Fa Ma’s bodies had also
instantly transformed in a gentle breeze and disappeared from the roof.
Within the room, the large middle-aged man eyed the edge of the black
thread which was empty. He was momentarily at a loss before he quickly
let out a stern cry. At the same time he did so, his feet abruptly
stepped on the ground and his body turned into a violent wind that shot
toward the window.
Just as he was only a couple of meters from the window, the middle-aged
large man’s face changed abruptly. His body, which was rushing forward,
suddenly came to a stop. His palm violently slammed onto the pillar by
the side, borrowing the reverse force to instantly move his body a few
“Bang!” At this moment, the window suddenly burst apart. It contained
an overbearing breath and underlying strength shot in from the spot where
the window was at and smashed on the huge pillar in the room.
Immediately, numerous crack lines began to spread on the pillar like a
“Who is it?” As he eyed the pillar that was covered with crack lines,
the large man’s eyes narrowed and cried out fiercely.
Ignoring the cry, a shadow flashed, rushed through the window and entered
the room. As the shadow’s sleeves were waved, a violent voice,
accompanied by a sonic boom that was like a muffled thunder, came
sweeping through the room. Under this muffled thunder, the glass things
within the room abruptly burst apart.

The large man had a dark expression as he watched the blurry looking
human figure, who had come rushing in. He held his right hand straight
and a dark yellow colored flame rose from his palm. His right hand
trembled slightly, turned into a hand knife shape, and ruthlessly hacked
at the person who had just came in.
“Humph!” Seeing that the large man had overestimated his own
abilities and had actually wanted to stubbornly resist, the human shadow
could not help but let out a mocking cold laugh. His eagle claw like hand
was abruptly extended. Within the air, circles of overbearing forceful
ripples gradually spread out from around his palm. The sound of the sonic
boom shocked both the ears of the large man causing his ears rang.
The eagle claw and the large man’s hand knife came into contact in an
instant. After which, they instantly separated. At the moment when they
did so, a flush abruptly surged on the large man’s face. He could not
resist spitting out a mouthful of fresh blood. His feet dragged against
the ground, leaving a deep scar.
“Fa Ma, I know that it’s you guys! Since I, Yan Li, dared to come to
the capital, I am not afraid that you would kill me. However, after you
kill me, your alchemist association will also be finished!” After
wiping the blood trance from the corner of his mouth, the large man saw
that the human figure had wanted to launch a ferocious attack, but
instead could only cry out with a sinister expression.
The stern cry of the large man caused the human figure’s attacks to
slow slightly. Quickly following this, however, a dark and cold killing
intent soared out. As the eagle claw moved, it was clear that it wanted
to take the live of the large man.
“Old Man Jia, wait!” Just as the human figure was about to finish off
this fellow, Fa Ma’s deep cry suddenly sounded.
Hearing this, the human figure was at a momentary loss. He could only
helplessly and immediately withdraw his body. His body moved in a flash
and appeared beside the table while he coldly and darkly stared at Yan Li
who was paralyzed as he sat on the ground.
“How ruthless.” On the roof, Xiao Yan was shocked as he watched Jia
Lao who attacked without the slightest mercy. If it were not for that
fellow called Yan Li reacting in a somewhat strong manner, it was likely
that this Dou Ling who was about to become a Dou Wang would die in the
“Fa Ma, it indeed is the few of you!” After throwing up a mouthful of
saliva that contained fresh blood, Yan Li darkly said.
A gentle breeze swayed within the room. Immediately, the figures of Hai
Bo Dong and Fa Ma appeared within it. Their gazes were icy cold as they
stared at Yan Li.
“Old Man Fa, isn’t it better to just kill him directly? Why are you
giving him the opportunity of respite?” Jia Lao knit his eyebrows
together and said. Although he wore a linen robe and had a friendly
smile, he would not give the slightest concern about the difference in
level between himself and the other party who he struck. Once he
attacked, he would directly take the person’s life.
Fa Ma shook his head. It was as Yan Li had said. As the deputy chairman
of the Chu Yun Empire’s Alchemist Association, he had likely already
prepared to be exposed when he had dared to come to the Jia Ma Empire’s
capital where there were countless of strong people. Therefore, it was
not likely that he had no plans to deal with it. If they were to really
kill him here, they might end up landing into someone’s trap.
“Hee hee, it seems that Fa Ma still sees very far. As long as you kill
me, the news of the Jia Ma Empire’s Alchemist Association willfully
killing off the competitors to manipulate who the champion of the Grand
Meeting would swiftly spread throughout the few empires around the
empire. When that time comes, I want to see just how long this
association of yours can last.” Yan Li swayed as he stood up. He then
coldly laughed, “You can choose to believe or doubt these words of
mine. If you want to gamble the reputation of the Alchemist Association,
you can come and try.”
“Yan Li, you had disguised your identity and participated in our Jia Ma
Empire’s Alchemist Grand Meeting, violating the condition to
participate in the Grand Meeting. According to the rules, our association
has the right to punish you.” Fa Ma said faintly.
“Disguise? Ha ha, just because you said disguise, does it mean
disguise?” Yan Li suddenly lifted his head and laughed loudly. He
flipped his hand and three red colored medicinal pill appeared at the tip
of his finger. A dark yellow colored flame rose and instantly incinerated
those medicinal pills into nothingness,
“Fa Ma, with your experience, I think that you should have heard the
name ‘Appearance Recovery Pill’. That’s right, it is that thing
that turned me into the appearance of a youth.” Yan Li proudly laughed,
“This red colored medicinal pill was specially refined by our
association. It is able to let me recover my old appearance. Ten minutes
later, my appearance will once again return to my youthful appearance.
Now, the remaining three pills have already been destroyed by me. Do you
think that there would be someone who will believe that I am the deputy
chairman of the Chu Yun Empire’s Alchemist Association with that
youthful appearance of mine? The people would only say that it is you, Fa
Ma, quietly killed me because you were afraid of losing face when I, as a
person from the Chu Yun Empire, obtained the champion position.”
Fa Ma’s expression darkened. A cold glint flashed in his turbid eyes.
Yan Li smiled coldly at the volatile expression of Fa Ma. His heart was
also uneasy. The other party consisted of three Dou Huangs. With this
kind of lineup, it was extremely easy if they wanted to kill him. It may
be as he had said earlier, that once he died, his people would begin to
create a large amount of rumors in order to achieve their aim of crushing
the Jia Ma Empire’s Alchemist Association. However, who did not fear
death? Yan Li was not a hot-blooded person. If it were not for the
position of the Chu Yun Empire’s Alchemist Association Chairman soon
becoming vacant, and that he had quite a few strong competitors, then he
would not have taken such a big risk and performed in this event where he
had a great chance of losing his life in order to raise his reputation
within the alchemist world of the Chu Yun Empire.
“As long as I can successfully return this time around, the position of
the chairman of the Alchemist Association will definitely be mine.
Without paying the price, what reward could there be? Moreover, Fa Ma’s
ability may be strong, but he was too concerned about the association.
Therefore, he might not take such a big risk.” Before he came, Yan Li
had clearly analyzed Fa Ma’s character. However, an analysis was only
an analysis. If there were any changes, then he would really be finished.
“Hu.” The volatile expression Fa Ma suddenly expressed within the
room caused a pressuring atmosphere. He coldly said, “Alright. I
won’t kill you now. However, it may not be so easy if you want to
obtain the champion spot of the Grand Meeting!”
“Hee hee, you need not worry about this. In the Grand Meeting this time
around, other than the young man called Yan Xiao, there is nothing
unusual about the rest. If I cannot even contend with these people of the
younger generation, how will I be able to fight for the spot of the
association’s chairman?” Yan Li smiled and said as his heart quietly
sighed in relief.
“Then just wait and see.” The corner of Fa Ma’s mouth moved
slightly. His voice was so icy cold that it appeared to have not even the
slightest warmth, “Additionally, I hope that you can successfully
return to the Chu Yun Empire to fight for the position of the chairman.”
“Let’s go.” Fa Ma called out in a low voice as he waved his sleeves
gently. His body turned into a black shadow under Yan Li’s ugly
expression and flashed out of the room. Behind him, Hai Bo Dong and Jia
Lao could only helplessly follow.
“Old fellow, you actually dared to threaten me. As long as I become the
champion, my exposure will naturally be great. I don’t believe that you
will dare to attack me when that time comes.” Yan Li clenched his teeth
together as he darkly said. He lifted his tea cup and violently poured it
into his mouth, only to realize that his hand was trembling in a manner
that could not be mistaken. It appeared that the trembling was due to
If he did not become the champion, the chase from three Dou Huangs would
leave him with no path to escape.
