Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-346
The sudden change that appeared in the sky caused everyone in the open
ground to be startled. Their gazes watched that old human figure which
had slowly appeared. The expressions of some of the people who knew him
“Old Hai? He… why did he take action?” Jia Xing Tian’s face was
completely dumbfounded as he spoke.
Fa Ma’s expression was similarly a little stunned. He did not expect
that Hai Bodong would actually take the risk of causing conflict with the
Misty Cloud Sect, and step forward to help.
The two people faced each other, both of them sensing something strange.
Given Hai Bodong’s character, he did not appear to be someone who would
help another in doing something so reckless.
“Looks like Xiao Yan has a great allure toward Old Hai. It even reached
the point where Old Hai is willing to take action to stop the Misty Cloud
Sect. This fellow is really making me increasingly curious as to what
type of person he may be.” Jia Xing Tian shook his head. His voice
contained some shock that was difficult to hide. He was extremely
familiar with Hai Bodong’s character. If there was no reward that could
move him, then this ice-like fellow would definitely not do something as
brash as this. Just what magic did that little fellow who was not even
twenty years old rely on in order to move a Dou Huang?
Fa Ma nodded slightly. His gaze swept to the sky as he softly said,
“Now, let’s take a look at what is going to happen next. Ah, how
could something so unexpected happen.”
The sudden action taken by Hai Bodong had immediately caused the
situation of the square to become a little strange. The weight of someone
at the Dou Huang class was something that no one dared to look down on,
not even the Misty Cloud Sect!
Seeing the manner in which Hai Bodong acted, it was clear that he was
standing on Xiao Yan’s side. In that case, the Misty Cloud Sect had to
carefully reconsider whether or not they wanted to capture Xiao Yan. If
they were not careful, they might really cause a soul-stirring great
Those in the square who knew Hai Bodong were a mere minority. Most of the
Misty Cloud Sect disciples did not have much of an impression of this
strong person who had hid his name and lived in isolation for decades.
Therefore, when they saw that this old man with an unimpressive
appearance was able to break the energy wall that the three elders had
created together, shock and disbelief, which were difficult to hide,
instantly covered their faces.
In the sky, the three elders who had retreated in a lightning-like
manner, flapped their wings, and stopped their bodies. They lifted their
heads, and eyed the old figure beside Xiao Yan. A seriousness
involuntarily surfaced on their faces. Their gazes meticulously and
slowly swept past Hai Bodong. A long while later, the oldest Misty Cloud
Elder appeared to have suddenly recalled something. His expression
changed drastically as he let out an involuntary cry, “Hai Bodong? Ice
Emperor Hai Bodong? You are actually still alive?”
Hearing his cry, the other two old men at his side also recalled this
name which had once shaken the Jia Ma Empire. Immediately, some changes
occured on their faces. The strong Dou Qi in their bodies appeared to
involuntarily circulate. Given their age, they were also of the same
generation which Hai Bodong belonged to. The only difference was that Hai
Bodong was already a strong person who had shaken the Jia Ma Empire, when
they were merely an Deacon within the Misty Cloud Sect. Therefore, when
they saw his appearance, their hearts immediately became alert.
Hai Bodong glanced the three of them before turning his head to look at
Xiao Yan. He asked, “Are you alright?”
“If you still did not act, I was likely not going to be alright.”
Xiao Yan waved the huge Heavy Xuan Ruler in his hand and laughed bitterly.
“Ah, it is going to be troublesome today. I alone cannot stop all of
them.” Hai Bodong softly said.
“Don’t fight with them head on. It will be enough as long as we can
leave this place.” Xiao Yan’s gaze slowly swept across his
surroundings. His expression changed slightly as he realized that when he
was entangled with the three of them earlier. Nearly a hundred Misty
Cloud Sect disciples with middle aged appearance had appeared on the top
of the huge trees around them. Seeing the manner in which they were
dressed, which was different from an ordinary disciple and their bodies
which were filled with Dou Qi, it was clear that most of their strengths
were not weaker than his own.
“There is no problem with me leaving, but it is a little troublesome
bringing you along. The members of the other party are not ordinary
people. Fortunately, however, Yun Yun is absent. Otherwise, it would be
completely impossible to leave.” Hai Bodong gaze randomly drifted to
his surroundings. A little joy seeped into his words.
“Then I will trouble Old Hai.” Xiao Yan nodded his head and laughed
“I will try my best.” There was little smile on Hai Bodong’s face.
Using his own strength to contend against the numerous skilled Misty
Cloud Sect personnel was something that even he as a Dou Huang, would not
feel good doing.
“Hai Bodong, it is really unexpected that we can still see each other
again after the farewell back then.” Yun Leng’s ugly expression
slowly recovered significantly. He raised his head and eyed Hai Bodong in
the sky. Not long after the latter had entered the capital, he had
already gotten accurate news of his appearance. Therefore, his expression
was not too shocked when he saw Hai Bodong this time around. It was only
unexpected that he would actually make a move to help Xiao Yan.
“Hee hee, Yun Leng, your position has risen after all these years. The
you back then appeared to have only entered the Misty Cloud Sect’s
Elder’s Council. It is really unexpected that you have actually become
the First Elder now.” Hai Bodong said faintly.
“Ke ke, this is all because the Sect Leader trusts these old bones of
mine.” Yun Leng smiled. Immediately, his expression became serious as
he stared at Hai Bodong and said, “We can reminisce about the past
later. You should know of our intention to hold Xiao Yan back. This
matter concerns our Misty Cloud Sect’s reputation. Therefore, I hope
that you will not randomly interfere in order to avoid damaging the
relationship between the Misty Cloud Sect and the Primer clan’s
Hai Bodong simply smiled with regards to the warning that Yun Leng had
issued. He slowly said, “I’m sorry. Due to some reason, I must ensure
Xiao Yan’s safety today. Therefore, I hope that you will let him leave
on account of this thin face of mine. In the future, I, Hai Bodong will
not forget this favor of yours.”
Hearing this, Yun Leng’s eyebrows were immediately knit together. In a
deep voice, he said, “Hai Bodong, you know that this is something
impossible. As a member of our Misty Cloud Sect, Mo Cheng’s
contribution to it over the years is something that everyone in the sect
had witnessed. If we remain indifferent when such a contributor were to
die in such a dubious manner, how can we ensure that our disciples will
have peace of mind in the future?”
“Ah, I also have my own difficulties.” Hai Bodong sighed and shook
his head. From Yun Leng’s appearance, it seemed that it was impossible
to bring Xiao Yan away by relying on those few words of his. He
immediately ceased speaking nonsense. After taking a glance at his
surroundings, he abruptly grabbed Xiao Yan. However, before he could make
any move, Yun Leng, who had been staring intently at him, let out a stern
cry, “Yun Li, the three of you stop him! All deacons of the Misty Cloud
Sect, form the ‘Misty Wind Fog Array’!”
As Yun Leng’s cry fell, the three elders in the sky began to move. The
three people formed a semicircle shape, completely locking Hai Bodong in.
Those nearly one hundred deacons of the Misty Cloud Sect on the huge
trees surrounding the open ground let out an ordered loud cry in unison.
Powerful Dou Qi erupted from within their bodies and numerous
white-colored, fog-like energies began spitting out of their palms like
waterfalls. Over a hundred fog-like energies began to intertwine around
each other before swiftly spreading. In merely an instant, it formed a
bowl-shaped energy cover which was just sufficient enough to completely
encase the entire square within.
At the moment that the energy encasement was formed, Hai Bodong protected
Xiao Yan with one hand while using an extremely violent and unreasonable
manner to ferociously break through the defence of the three elders. In a
lightning like manner, they flashed to the bottom of the energy cover. He
waved his hand and an icy energy pillar around ten feet in height shot
out violently and heavily smashed on the energy cover. The energy cover
wobbled slightly, but it was strong enough that it was not immediately
“Dammit, what a hard tortoise shell.”
(TL: Not literally a tortoise shell but a tortoise is a sort of insult.)
Hai Bodong was about to continue attacking the energy cover after letting
out a soft curse when three ferocious forces came at him from behind. As
the three force flew, they actually began to merge and their power soared
after that. This forced Hai Bodong to have no choice but to turn around.
With a wave of his hand, a tough, cold, icy mirror was swiftly
agglomerated in front of him, blocking the soaring force.
“You should step aside first. Be careful. Give me ten minutes!” Hai
Bodong waved his hand and skillfully sent Xiao Yan behind him out of the
battle circle while he said in a deep voice.
After sending Xiao Yan away, Hai Bodong’s expression gradually became
colder. Icy cold Dou Qi gushed out from his body. Immediately, one could
see the water vapor contained in the surrounding air immediately begin to
solidify into countless of tough ice grains. He flicked his hand and the
ice grains carried the whistling wind sound and violently smashed toward
the three Misty Cloud Sect’s Elders from all directions.
The three Elders did not dare to underestimate this person who was once
known as the Ice Emperor. The Dou Qi in their body simultaneously surged
out and the three different elemental Dou Qis began to merge together,
forming an indestructible defence.
In the distant sky, Hai Bodong’s figure flashed. He carried an
extremely cold air as he began to launch waves of continuous attacks
against the three Elders in a tyrannical manner. Although the three of
them could merge their Dou Qi to fight their opponents, they were still
forced to retreat in defeat under Hai Bodong’s strong attacks. If it
were not for the great coordination between the three of them, they would
have long since been someone who was defeated.
Cold wind continuously blew through the sky which was covered by a
white-colored energy The sounds of explosions from the contact of energy
repeatedly sounded in everyone’s ears. The battle, which was extremely
intense, caused the Misty Cloud Sect disciples below to be completely
Yun Leng narrowed his eyes and watched the three elders who were
suppressed until they repeatedly retreated in defeat. He then glanced at
Xiao Yan, who was floated on another corner of the sky. A cold smile
involuntarily left his mouth. His shoulders shook and a pair of Dou Qi
wings slowly sprung out.
With a flap of both wings, Yun Leng’s body began to swiftly rise into
the air under everyone’s gaze. Finally, he directly charged toward Xiao
When he heard the sound of rushing wind from below, Xiao Yan hurriedly
lowered his head. Immediately, his expression changed. The pair of wings
on his back flapped and his body was swiftly pulled back.
“Hei, you want to leave? Regardless of why Hai Bodong wants to protect
you, as long as I take you down first, he would likely not dare do
anything.” Yun Leng let out a cold smile as he spoke while watching
Xiao Yan swiftly pull back. His toes pressed on the empty space and his
speed once again soared. In the blink of an eye, he approached Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan eyed Yun Leng approaching and hurriedly flapped his wings to
In the sky, two figures were flying, one chasing and one fleeing. The
figure behind, however, was quickly narrowing the distance between the
two. At one moment, he had finally entered into an attacking range. Yun
Leng violently stomped his feet on empty space. His body turned into
blurry lightning. When he next appeared, he was actually blocking the
path that Xiao Yan was using to flee. His body charged forward and the
shriveled hand of his grabbed at Xiao Yan’s throat like an eagle claw
which was carrying a sharp aggressive force that caused Xiao Yan’s skin
to feel a piercing pain.
The speed at which Yun Leng acted was as fast as lightning. When Xiao Yan
had just noticed it, his hand claw was already less than half a meter in
front of him!
Within those dark black pupils, the hand claw which carried a sharp force
was swiftly magnified in size.
The hand claw which was carrying a sharp force cut through the empty
space and directly pointed at Xiao Yan’s neck!
In the distance, Hai Bodong had also noticed the situation happening to
his side. His expression immediately changed drastically. He wanted to
quickly rush forward to assist Xiao Yan, but the three Misty Cloud Elders
appeared to have gone crazy. They took the risk of being seriously
injured and used all their might to perform a union attacking Dou
Tecdhnique, forcefully delaying Hai Bodong, causing him to be unable to
At this moment, the gazes all around were paused on the spot where Xiao
Yan and Yun Leng were at. If Xiao Yan was captured, the big fight this
time around would completely come to a stop.
“Looks like it is about to be over. It is difficult for Hai Bodong
alone to successfully bring Xiao Yan away from the Misty Cloud Sect.”
Jia Xing Tian smacked his lips together and sighed.
Fa Ma nodded slightly. He was about to say something when his expression
suddenly changed. His gaze abruptly turned toward the direction Xiao Yan
in, “That’s not right! What’s that?”
At this moment, another change once again occurred on the battleground!
