Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-360
The wild killing intent seeped out of Xiao Yan’s body within the large
hall. Everyone was so nervous and frightened that they stopped what they
were doing. They eyed that savage face and did not dare to emit the
“Junior Clan Leader, those three mysterious people were from the Misty
Cloud Sect?” The expression of the first elder was slightly ugly as he
Xiao Yan inhaled a breath of air and forcefully suppressed the killing
intent that was rising from within his heart. He nodded slightly and said
in a dark and cold voice, “Since she has said that your bodies have the
remanent energy of Yun Leng within them, then it naturally cannot be
false. Moreover, my clan had encountered this kind of surprise attack not
long after I left the Misty Cloud Sect. How can the Misty Cloud Sect be
unrelated to this matter?”
“What does Junior Clan Leader plan to do?” The first elder bitterly
laughed. In front of such a strong faction like the Misty Cloud Sect, the
first elder was a little at a loss on what to do.
“I have already said that he must die this time around!” Xiao Yan
said in a thick voice.
“Ah.” The first elder let out a sigh. He eyed Xiao Yan, whose face
was filled with killing intent, before musing for a while. He then said,
“Junior Clan Leader, although I do not know the status of that
mysterious person in the Misty Cloud Sect, I don’t think that it should
be low from the looks of his strength, no?”
“Other than the Sect Leader and a few others, his position should be
the highest in the Misty Cloud Sect.”
“As expected. Ah.” The first elder shook his head as he mused out
loud, “Earlier, the reason that the Junior Clan Leader had gotten into
a big fight with the Misty Cloud Sect was because of the Three Years
Agreement. Moreover, you did not cause much harm to the upper echelons in
the Misty Cloud Sect during that time. Therefore, the Misty Cloud Sect
does not really hate you. If you were to kill this mysterious strong
person this time around, the relationship between both parties would
become completely unresolvable.”
“Then first elder, do you mean to have me to ignore my father’s life
or death?” Xiao Yan frowned slightly. His voice was a little dark and
“Junior Clan Leader has misunderstood what I meant.” The first elder
laughed bitterly before sighing, “I am just trying to tell Junior Clan
Leader that if you were to really kill that mysterious person, the
relationship between the Xiao clan and the Misty Cloud Sect would
“The last time, due to the Three Years Agreement between Nalan Yanran
and you, they were disadvantaged in that they were in the wrong.
Therefore, they did not really dare to touch the Xiao clan. Of course,
the turn of events regarding the three mysterious strong people from the
Misty Cloud Sect is beyond everyone’s expectations. This time around,
however, if you were to kill the person who holds quite a high position
in the Misty Cloud Sect, I’m afraid that the Misty Cloud Sect will
really send people to attack the Xiao clan.”
“My intention in saying all this is not to stop Junior Clan Leader from
going to rescue the Clan Leader. It is just that I want to let Junior
Clan Leader to assume the post of the temporary Clan Leader and think of
a complete method in order to preserve the Xiao clan’s bloodline should
an unavoidable conflict with the Misty Cloud Sect occur when rescuing the
Clan Leader. This clan is something that the Clan Leader has spent a
painstaking effort on. I think that Junior Clan Leader is also unwilling
to see it decay like this.”
The dark solemness gradually disappeared from Xiao Yan’s face. He
nodded his head. The words of the first elder were not completely without
reason. The current Xiao clan was not a faction that was in the same
league as the Misty Cloud Sect. It was extremely easy for the other party
to destroy the Xiao clan if they wanted to. If he were to really kill Yun
Leng, he would definitely raise the fury of the Misty Cloud Sect. When
that time came, the Xiao clan would also have difficulty not getting
involved. Therefore, if he wanted to go to the Misty Cloud Sect to search
for his father, he must first think of a way for the Xiao clan to escape.
Xiao Yan quietly sat back down onto his chair. He closed his eyes
slightly as his finger gently tapped on the table.
Everyone in the hall took the initiative to remain quiet as they watched
Xiao Yan, who had become silent. One by one, numerous gazes focused
intently on the black-robed young man. At this moment, his every action
affected the entire clan’s safety.
Xiao Yan’s tapping finger abruptly paused. He opened his eyes and swept
his gaze slowly across those clan members around him. Finally, he stopped
on the faces of the three elders. His tone was resolute. “No matter
what, we must definitely search for Father, even if the price is to
completely infuriating the Misty Cloud Sect.”
The three elders exchanged glances before immediately facing Xiao Yan and
slowly asking, “What about the Xiao clan?”
“The Xiao clan is the painstaking effort of father and grandfather. I
will not watch it decay.” Xiao Yan eyes narrowed. He suddenly stood up
and his eyes stared intently at the three elders. In a deep voice, he
said, “May I know if my words have any authority within the current
“It does!” The faces of the three elders were startled. They
hesitated for an instant before giving a united reply with grim faces. At
this moment, only Xiao Yan, in front of them, had the ability to pull the
Xiao clan, which was in a devastated state, up from the mire it was in.
“What about all of you?” Xiao Yan suddenly turned around and shouted
as he eyed the clan members who were standing by the door.
“We will follow Junior Clan Leader’s order!”
Xiao Yan, who had just returned to the Xiao clan for a short while, had
already built a position that was difficult to shake within the Xiao clan
after the cold-blooded method which he had used to kill Jia Li Bi and the
others. When they heard his cry, those clan members almost immediately
roared out loud with flushed faces. They similarly knew that at this life
and death moment, the young man in front of them, who was once the
useless person of the Xiao clan, was their only savior!
Xiao Yan nodded his head and let out a deep cry. He turned around and
walked toward the seat where his father had once sat in the past. He
brushed his robe and sat down. His gaze looked around the entire place
and said with a bang, “I plan to move the Xiao clan from Wu Tan City.”
A commotion immediately broke out in the hall the moment these words were
said. The Xiao clan possessed no less than ten marketplaces within Wu Tan
City. The value of these marketplaces was quite a large amount of money
when added together. If they were to just leave like this, would they not
suffer a great loss?
Xiao Yan gently waved his hand and the commotion in the hall slowly
ceased. He said in a deep voice, “Everyone should know that the matter
of the Clan Leader being missing is definitely related to the Misty Cloud
Sect. Although the strength of the Misty Cloud Sect is very large, must
the courageous and strong men in our Xiao clan allow them to bully us? If
this matter were to spread, won’t others point at our noses and
ridicule us for being spineless?”
“Tell me, rescue the Clan Leader and offend the Misty Cloud Sect, or
hide in Wu Tan City like a tortoise, allowing others to point at us and
say that we have cast aside our pride. What would you choose?” Xiao
Yan’s eyes widened and he cried out sternly.
“Rescue the Clan Leader! Our Xiao clan doesn’t have any tortoises!”
An astringent, tender voice suddenly sounded from outside the main door.
Xiao Qing’s small head was squeezed out from behind. Her small face was
so excited that it was flushed red while she waved her small fist and
cried out loud.

“That’s right. Rescue the Clan Leader. We don’t want to be
tortoises.” Another few tender voice sounded. Human heads surged around
the main door as ten plus children, whose ages were but twelve to
thirteen squeezed in and shouted loudly.
“So what if it’s the Misty Cloud Sect? Our Xiao clan has never
offended them, but they damaged our Xiao clan in such a manner. They even
almost caused us to be tragically exterminated. Junior Clan Leader, I
will obey you!” A member of the Xiao clan with a sturdy build eyed the
outraged younger generation and hot blood also surged wildly in his
heart. He could not resist taking a step forward as he cried out with a
“That’s right. Young Clan Leader, we will all listen you you!”
After the first person, a chain reaction appeared to have spread at the
back. One by one, the Xiao clan’s men waved their fists and shouted
with faces that were flushed red with anger. Being humbled time and time
again during this period of time had really caused them to have
difficulty enduring. Now that the Xiao clan finally had a backbone, they
did not want that kind of humiliation to repeat itself, even if the price
was to anger the strongest faction within the Jia Ma Empire!
“Ke ke, Junior Clan Leader, since everyone is willing to obey you, why
don’t you tell us your plan.” The first elder watched the clan
members’ excited faces before turning toward Xiao Yan as he smiled and
said in a gratified manner.
“I plan to send the clan members out of Wu Tan City out in batches.
After which, I will let each of them head to the western region of the
Jia Ma Empire. The strength of the Misty Cloud Sect there is a little
weaker. Moreover, my two elder brothers, Xiao Ding and Xiao Li, are
expanding and developing their own power at a rapid pace there. I want to
secretly send the clan members there. In this way, we can eliminate the
threat the Misty Cloud Sect poses to the Xiao clan.” Xiao Yan slowly
“Go to the western region of the empire?” The first elder was
momentarily stunned upon hearing this. He said with hesitation, “So
“The western region of the empire is near the Tager Desert. Only at
that place is the strength of the Misty Cloud Sect a little weaker. It is
also very easy to expose ourselves in other places. In the future, our
relationship with the Misty Cloud Sect might become extremely terrible.
Therefore, we must first make preparations for the worst.” Xiao Yan
“From now on, first elder, you will begin to sort out all the things in
the Xiao clan. We will bring all the valuables that we can. As for the
ten plus marketplace, I will let the Primer Auction house manage them.
After that, all the profits from it will be shared with them. With my
relationship with the Primer clan, we don’t need to worry if they will
reveal our whereabouts.”
“Yes!” The first elder nodded his head to accept the order. He
hesitated for a moment and asked, “When do we begin to leave?”

“It’s best not to drag this matter. We will begin leaving in batches
tonight. The clan’s family members and those in the younger generation
who cannot fight will leave first. There must be some clan members who
are quite strong protecting them along the way. Remember, our rendezvous
point is Rock Desert City located in the western region of the Jia Ma
Empire. When you arrive there, find the ‘Desert Metal Mercenary
Company’!” Xiao Yan said, making a prompt decision on the spot.
“Additionally, I will lead people to clear out the remnants of the Jia
Li and Aoba clan during these two days to divert everyone’s attention
within the city. I will need you three elders to settle those cumbersome
matters regarding leaving in batches.”
“Yes!” The three elders replied in unison.
Xiao Yan was seated on the leader’s seat in the hall. His expression
was solemn as he methodically issued orders. That calmness that stood
firm even as a storm approached caused some of the younger generation of
the Xiao clan to be in a slight trance. Was this still the little fellow
who had been quiet and kept a low profile back then?
Compared to those older clan members, Xiao Qing and the others of the
younger generation were eyeing Xiao Yan with faces full of worship. Under
his command, vigor and fighting spirit had once again burst out of the
Xiao clan, which had originally fallen into a panic.
Queen Medusa quietly sat in the chair. Her delicate hand held a warm tea
cup and carelessly sipped it. Her eyes would show some surprise when she
occasionally glanced at Xiao Yan seated on the leader’s seat. In hardly
any time, he had actually completely stabilized his clan in which the
members’ hearts had been scattered. It must be said that such ability
and mentality far exceeded an ordinary person. No wonder even Pill-King
Gu He was also played by this fellow back in the desert.
After the final clan member accepted his order and stepped back, Xiao Yan
let out a long sigh as he eyed the hall which had once again become
empty. He lifted his teacup, and gulped the tea down, letting it soothe
his dry throat.
“Yun Leng from the Misty Cloud Sect, just you wait. Once I have
properly settled the Xiao clan, I will head there once again. This time
around, I will no longer hold anything back!” Xiao Yan gently held the
teacup. A ferociousness appeared on his face once again. His hand shook
and the teacup abruptly burst apart!

TL: And another one
After Xiao Yan’s orders were issued, one after another, the entire Xiao
clan began to move. When the sky was dark, ten lightly-armed groups
appeared in the spacious open ground. Xiao Yan thoroughly examined them
before dispatching some of the stronger clan members into the ten
light-armed groups Finally, they took advantage of the dead of the night,
and began to split up. One by one, they quietly slipped out of the Xiao
clan. They would once again gather outside the city before beginning to
split up and march toward the western region of the empire.
By the time the sky gradually brightened, over half the family members of
the Xiao clan had already left.
In the morning, Xiao Yan stood on the top of a pavilion and looked around
the entire courtyard. A long while later, he lifted his head and watched
the morning glow which had spread over the horizon. A coldness flashed
across his eyes before he suddenly turned his body and headed down a set
While Xiao Yan was descending from a pavilion, there were already over a
hundred Xiao clan men on the open ground. Their hands were already
holding weapons as they stood in place. It appeared that they knew what
they would be doing today. Therefore, the wild and fierce aura all over
them was like a ferocious tiger which was descending a mountain.
“We will destroy all the remaining strength of the Jia Li clan and the
Aoba clan today!” Xiao Yan slowly walked toward the exterior of the
open ground while carrying the huge Heavy Xuan Ruler on his back. His
cold voice, however, caused the blood of all the Xiao clan members on the
open ground to boil. During these few days, there was an unknown number
of clan members that had been secretly killed by the Jia Li clan and the
Aoba clan. Now, it was time for revenge!
The quiet Wu Tan City was frightened by this killing aura which had
suddenly appeared. The faces of those passersby who were walking on the
street were completely stunned as they watched the mass of humans rushing
out of the Xiao clan like a flood. The dark and cold killing intent that
was emitted from their bodies caused everyone’s bodies to feel cold.
“What is the Xiao clan planning to do?” Some of the passersby could
not resist muttering as they eyed the human flow that was surging past
them on the street.
“That person leading them is really young. His appearance is also
somewhat familiar.” Some of the people who had stayed at Wu Tan City
for a number of years said a little uncertainly.
“That ruler is really large.” A tender voice suddenly sounded. After
which, the entire street fell into a dead silence.
“That is Xiao Yan from the Xiao clan?” A shocked voice finally broke
the silence which lasted for a moment. During this period of time, all
the people in Wu Tan City had heard about the huge battle between Xiao
Yan and the Misty Cloud Sect until calluses had almost appear in their
ears. That special shaped huge ruler belonging to Xiao Yan had also
become a symbol of his.
“This time around, the Jia Li and Aoba clans are going to be out of
luck.” Some of the people who were clear about the situation of Wu Tan
City appeared to have come to a sudden realization after being slightly
shocked. Immediately, a look of pity appeared on their faces as they
shook their heads.
Similar to what these people thought, this torrent of the Xiao clan
directly surged toward the marketplaces of the Jia Li clan and the Aoba
clan. All the defences within them were instantly destroyed. Shining
sharp blades awaited anyone who dared to resist!
Under Xiao Yan’s leadership, the group from the Xiao clan was like a
flood in transit. Any marketplace which they passed by was completely
destroyed by them. Those guards of the Jia Li and Aoba clans were
basically massacred until none were left. Wherever the flow passed, the
marketplace was smashed, appearing in a dire shape. The Xiao clan had
used the most ruthless method to pay back the suppression and humiliation
the two clans had given them during this period of time.
Without the effective leadership of a Clan Leader, the two clans did not
form an effective resistance. Therefore, in a mere morning, the
marketplaces, underground gambling houses, etc. in Wu Tan City which
belonged to the two clans had already been completely destroyed by the
Xiao clan. This time around, the two clans were truly finished!
The gazes of everyone in Wu Tan City were attracted by the sudden
eruption of the Xiao clan. The killing intent which had spread all over
Wu Tan City let them know that the Xiao clan was indeed in a violent rage
this time around.
However, when the gazes of the entire city were gathered on the fighting
force of the Xiao clan, who were repeatedly moving around, the family
members within the Xiao clan had completely left.
The operation to destroy continued from morning until evening. Since
everyone was stunned by this operation of the Xiao clan, they did not
realize that the original one hundred plus people who engaged in the
destruction had unknowingly been reduced by a lot.

When the sun was about to set, the destruction, which had continued for a
full day, was completely over. The huge force of the Xiao clan with
bloodstains all over their bodies once again returned to the large
courtyard while laughing unrestrainedly. The door to the courtyard was
then shut tightly, blocking all those curious gazes.
Tens of clan members whose bodies contained a fierce and evil presence
sat down on the floor. They laughed loudly and conversed with one
another, using this opportunity to declare the free and untroubled
feeling today. Today was likely the most carefree and delightful day
during these two years. In the past, the strength of the Xiao clan may
not have been weak, but the Clan Leader did not have such a boldness
because he needed to consider the larger picture. However, Xiao Yan
completely possessed such courage!
The sound of footsteps slowly sounded from outside the open ground. Xiao
Yan, who had changed into a clean robe smiled as he walked toward the
“Junior Clan Leader!” The tens of large men belonging to the Xiao
clan stood up orderly upon seeing Xiao Yan appear. A fanaticism appeared
in their eyes as they cried out loudly. The wild methods of Xiao Yan
today had subdued all the worried thoughts of the Xiao clan.
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded his head. He walked up a high platform before
slowly sweeping his gaze over the well lit Xiao clan. No one outside knew
that there were only these tens of people left within the Xiao clan.
“Junior Clan Leader, the clan’s Qi Methods, Dou Techniques, wealth,
etc. have already been completely consolidated. Ke ke, on account of
Junior Clan Leader’s face, the Primer Auction House actually lent
storage rings to us. This has helped us settle quite a lot of
problems.” The first elder smiled and said.
“Ah.” Xiao Yan nodded with satisfaction. His gaze overlooked the
warriors of the Xiao Clan and laughed softly, “Everyone, all of you
will also begin to disperse and leave Wu Tan City tonight and gathering
at the stipulated spot. When that time comes, you will gather together
and head toward Rock Desert City. Once you have arrived there, our Xiao
clan will have a new beginning.”
“Junior Clan Leader, what about you?” The first elder suddenly asked.
Following the first elder’s words, everyone’s gazes shifted over to
Xiao Yan laughed softly. His delicate and handsome face faintly contained
a savageness. “Me? I will go and take the life of that old bastard!”
The face of the first elder became slightly sluggish as he stared at Xiao
Yan’s face. A long while later, he slowly bent his body toward Xiao
Yan. After that, the tough warriors of the Xiao clan who had just
undergone a blood trail also bent their straight bodies.
“Young Clan Leader, we will be waiting for you in Rock Desert City!”
“It’s time, go!” Xiao Yan nodded his head slightly. He then lifted
it and glanced at the moonlight before waving his hand as he spoke.
“Junior Clan Leader, take care!”
The tens of warriors of the Xiao clan shouted in unison. Immediately,
they turned their bodies. One by one, they dispersed and sank into the
shadows. Under the dark, black, night sky, human figures were creeping
about, much like ants, which had scattered in all directions, as they
quietly slipped away from Wu Tan City.
Xiao Yan stood on the high platform and watched the courtyard which had
become quiet. He sighed gently and muttered softly, “Yun Leng, it is
all your fault that my Xiao clan is like this. This time, even Yun Tian
will be unable to protect you!”
Xiao Yan slowly brought his hands out of his sleeves. Green-colored
flames rose on his long hand. A moment later, a thick white-colored flame
quietly crept out.
The green and white-colored flames mingled with each other under the
night sky, dancing enchantingly.
On the top of a pavilion, Queen Medusa’s pretty eyes stared at the two
colored flames which were rising from each of Xiao Yan’s hands. Her red
sleek small mouth parted slightly. For the first time, a seriousness
flashed across her bewitching pupils.
