Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-334
The dull and simple words slowly drifted across the huge square. They
caused the calm atmosphere which had been present throughout the entire
ground to be in slight unrest and disorder.
In the open ground, countless Misty Cloud Sect disciples carried all
sorts of different emotions in their gazes as they stared at the
black-robed young man near the edge of the rock stairs. They were not
unfamiliar with this young man who was called Xiao Yan. The relationship
between Nalan Yanran and him had already become a topic in everyday
conversation of many Misty Cloud Sect disciples. Of course, each time his
name was mentioned, most people would refer to it mockingly with disdain.
A child of a small clan wanted to marry Nalan Yanran whose status within
the Misty Cloud Sect was as noble as a princess. In these people’s eyes,
it undoubtedly appeared that Xiao Yan had overestimated his ability. This
was especially so after the Three Year Agreement was spread within the
sect. This ridicule became even stronger. Naturally, one of the reasons
for ridicule did not exclude them being jealous.
As the junior sect leader of the Misty Cloud Sect which was beyond the
reach of many, countless of Misty Cloud Sect disciples viewed her as the
goddess in their hearts. When they met, these people had always faced her
exquisite face which had maintained an indifferent and other-worldly
expression. Anyone who wanted to come into closer contact with her would
return in failure. Xiao Yan, as the man who had nearly become Nalan
Yanran’s husband would naturally and easily receive some abnormal
Due to the jealousy, along with some rumors, these Misty Cloud Sect
disciples would naturally have a poor impression of Xiao Yan whom they
had never met before. When they spoke, most of them would degrade him as
much as possible, appearing as though they would not stop until they
described Xiao Yan as being totally worthless.
However, as they eyed the young man who still maintained a calm and
leisurely manner despite facing the united Qi of nearly a thousand Misty
Cloud Sect disciples, some of the more astute disciples felt a little
awed in their hearts after they discarded the negative emotions within
their hearts. This indifferent attitude did not appear to be something
that the trash of the Xiao clan, whom their comrades had usually spoke
of, could do.
Nalan Yanran’s bright eyes stared at the young man with a slightly
skinny figure a short distance away. Her gaze paused on that delicate and
handsome face. At that spot, she could still vaguely recognize the
outline of the young man back then. It was just that three years had
grinded off the tenderness and sharpness of youth. The young man
currently in front of her no longer had the cutting edge vigor which had
suddenly erupted in the hall of the Xiao clan’s home back then.
Replacing it was a profound restraint.
“He really has changed.” A sentence quietly popped up within her
mind. Nalan Yanran’s gaze was a little complicated. She had never
thought that the useless person back then would actually really be able
come to the Misty Cloud Sect without fear, much less remaining as
indifferent as the wind while not revealing the slightest anxiety or
paleness, even when faced with nearly a thousand disciples of the Misty
“Nalan clan, Nalan Yanran.”
Nalan Yanran slowly stood up. Her pretty figure was tall and straight
much like a proud and unyielding snow lotus. Her bright eyes stared at
Xiao Yan while her voice was as calm as the latter.
“That is the little fellow of the Xiao clan? Wasn’t it said that he
was a useless person who could not store Dou Qi?” On the huge tree, Jia
Xing Tian eyed Xiao Yan with a pair of eyes that contained some
astonishment. He softly laughed, “Ke ke, but seeing this bearing of
his, he does not look like a person who forcefully pretends to have
strong exterior while being empty inside. Moreover, even if his calmness
is acted out, being able to maintain this calm in front of the united
force created by those old fellows of the Misty Cloud Sect is not
something an ordinary person can do.”
Fa Ma, who was a short distance away from Jia Xing Tian nodded slightly.
His old and sharp eyes slowly swept across Xiao Yan. A moment later, he
paused on the latter’s face. His eyebrows were suddenly knit slightly
together as he said, “For some unknown reason, he seems to have a
familiar feeling about him.”
“Ke ke, you also have such a feeling?” Hearing this, Jia Xing Tian
laughed softly. His eyes were filled with a deep meaning as he stared at
Xiao Yan and said, “Looks like we may have seen him somewhere before.”
The frown on Fa Ma’s forehead deepened a little. His eyes flickered as
he stared at Xiao Yan, but did he not continue to say anything more.
“Hei, old man Nalan, is this the young fellow from the Xiao clan who
nearly became the son-in-law of the Nalan clan? He doesn’t appear to be
the useless person from the rumors. This bearing and mental strength is
something that I have hardly seen in the young people whom I have met.”
Mu Chen turned his head and said. He smiled at Nalan Jie, whose eyes had
paused on Xiao Yan’s body since the beginning. He gloated a little
within his smile. A son-in-law who was abandoned because he was thought
to be useless had currently appeared even more outstanding than some of
those who were called geniuses. Although Nalan Jie would not feel pain
until the point that he did not want to live because of this, he would
more or less feel a little upset.
Nalan Jie’s expression was ugly as he ferociously cut Mu Chen with his
gaze. He was too lazy to say any unnecessary things to him. With a cold
laugh, he continued to focus his gaze on that delicate and handsome man.
The emotions in his heart rolled.
Although Nalan Jie had already known that Xiao Yan had abandoned the
reputation of being a useless person for quite some time, the calmness
and mental strength which the latter currently displayed caused his heart
to feel a great shock. On top of this shock, he also sighed softly in a
regretful manner. With the situation having reached this point, saying
anything more would not help change the situation. He could only hope
that the grudges between Xiao Yan and Nalan Yanran would thaw after this
Three Year Agreement was over. It was best if they could reconcile. Of
course, this may well be an unrealistic dream. Even if the two of them
could no longer be together in the future, allowing Xiao Yan to cease
carrying hatred toward the Nalan clan in the future would cause Nalan Jie
to quietly feel a little better. After all from how Nalan Jie currently
saw it, this young fellow basically possessed all the requirements to be
a strong person.
An outstanding mental strength, excellent training talent and the
perseverance to continue struggling for three years just for a promise.
With these few things, Xiao Yan’s future path toward becoming a strong
person will be much smoother and unobstructed. Nalan Jie did not think
that being the target of the grudge belonging to a young man with
limitless potential was something that one could be happy about.
“Looks like I should send someone to get in contact with the Xiao
clan.” Nalan Jie softly sighed in his heart as he shook his head. He
threw his attention to the open ground. The current him could only wait
for the Three Year Agreement which was about to begin.
After Nalan Yanran stood up, the ten plus white robed men above the
square had finally begun to slowly open their eyes. Their gazes were
thrown on the black-robed young man on the rock stairs. As they exchanged
glances with one another, they felt an astonishment. The uncertainty in
their hearts was exactly the same as what was within Nalan Jie and the
others. No matter which direction one looked at the currently Xiao Yan,
one could not see the Xiao clan’s trash who suffered all sorts of
ridicule back then.

“You are Xiao Yan from the Xiao clan?” A white robed old man who was
at the center raised his eyes and scanned Xiao Yan. After a while, he
slowly opened his mouth and spoke those words.
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept across the white robed old man at the middle. He
realized that this person should have quite a high position within the
Misty Cloud Sect. Ever since the latter opened his mouth, the surrounding
old men wearing a similar robe remained silent.
“I am the First Elder of the Misty Cloud Sect, Yun Leng.” Before Xiao
Yan could respond, the old man simply continued as he pleased and said,
“The sect leader has yet to return today. Therefore, the Three Year
Agreement this time around will be presided over by the old me. The
purpose of the competition this time around is to learn from each other.
Stop when you…”
“Life and death are dictated by the heavens.” A soft voice suddenly
sounded, interrupting Yun Leng’s words.
The gazes on the open ground turned towards the voice. Finally they
paused on the body of the quiet black-robed young man. All of their
expressions were different. Many people did not expect that Xiao Yan
would actually say such words. One should know that his opponent was the
Misty Cloud Sect’s successor whom the sect had focused on grooming.
“Ke ke, a bold young man.” Above the tall trees, some old fellows
with strange characters could not resist laughing. Some of them even
raised their thumbs at Xiao Yan.
Nalan Yanran’s eyes were lifted slightly. She watched the black-robed
young man in front of her. Within those dark black eyes appeared to be a
pulsing and fluctuating light, which was difficult to hide. Was that
A long while later, she nodded her head. Her voice was cool. “As you
Hearing Nalan Yanran’s response, Yun Leng knit his eyebrows slightly
together. The sudden interruption from Xiao Yan had caused this First
Elder who held quite a high position in the Misty Cloud Sect to be
displeased. He was also aware that Xiao Yan had already been removed of
his reputation of being trash a long time ago. However, Nalan Yanran’s
talent was also not lower than his. Additionally, there was the Misty
Cloud Sect grooming her. The growth of her strength could be called
extremely rapid. If they were to fight, Yun Leng was not optimistic of
Xiao Yan’s chances.

“Young man, you should always leave some leeway in everything you do.
But since you have made such a request, do as you like. Life and death
will be determined by the heavens.” Yun Leng waved his hands and said
An arc was lifted at the corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth. In his heart, he
could not resist laughing coldly. Leave some leeway? Back then, Nalan
Yanran had been ruthless. Did anyone ask her to leave some room for
Xiao Yan’s hand slowly held the hilt of the ruler. He abruptly drew it
out and the Heavy Xuan Ruler carried the sound of wind being compressed.
It slanted toward the ground and a breeze was created from its body,
stirring all the dust on the ground. A faint green-colored Dou Qi
shrouded the surface of his body as Xiao Yan stared at Nalan Yanran. “I
have come according to the Three Year Agreement. Today, let’s settle
all of our past grudges. Please repay all the humiliation that you have
given the Xiao clan back then.”
Nalan Yanran extended her hand and an emerald-colored storage ring glow
on her finger flashed. A long pale green-colored sword appeared. The
sword edge was slightly tilted, reflecting a dense coldness under the
Nalan Yanran’s pretty eyes exchanged glances with that pair of dark
black pupils. She sighed a little regretfully as she faintly said, “I
will be in charge of my own marriage. Even though three years have
passed, I do not think that I did anything wrong back then. I have the
right to choose my fate. Perhaps some of my actions were inappropriate
when I was choosing, however, I think that I would still make this choice
even if I could go back in time.”
“Your actions were inappropriate?” Xiao Yan laughed softly. Just a
simple inappropriate action and she wanted to shrink away from her own
rude and unreasonable behavior? Was this not far too simple?
Xiao Yan’s expression gradually returned to its indifferentness. The
palm holding the ruler’s hilt was becoming increasingly tight. A moment
later, his foot abruptly took a step forward. On the spot where it
landed, the hard green rock surface actually had a few crack lines
spreading out. A ferocious and surging green-colored Dou Qi which
contained some green-colored flame seedlings violently surged on Xiao
