Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-37
If a clan wants to be able to prosper over the years, the most important
factor is the clan’s “vitality”. And the vitality of the clan is
the clan’s younger generation, the “new blood” of the clan. Only
with a continuous supply of “new blood” can a clan, a huge
“machine”, run smoothly.
Therefore, the Coming of Age Ceremony, is a huge day for every clan,
including the Xiao Clan.
As one of the top three clans in Wu Tan City, Xiao Clan’s Coming of Age
Ceremony attracted the attention of most forces in the city and those
that had a good relationship with Xiao Clan even came to watch the
Accompanying Xun Er under the shade of a large true, Xiao Yan relaxingly
Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes while looking at the huge platform in the
middle of the training field. The platform was made of huge blocks of
lumber and was specially made for the Coming of Age Ceremony that was
about to happen.
Xiao Yan’s gaze left the empty wooden platform and went to the people
that were not part of Xiao Clan but still there to witness the Coming of
Age Ceremony. With reluctance, he said: “There are quite a few
Watching Xiao Yan’s unhappy face, Xun Er, who knew that Xiao Yan liked
serenity, gloated with laughter.
Just as her laugh sounded, Xun Er felt Xiao Yan’s accusing gaze and
quickly closed her mouth. Taking a look at Xiao Yan, her eyes had a hint
of light gold flash across before she said: “Xiao Yan ge-ge got to 8
Hearing that, Xiao Yan tilted his head to look at her and realized that
while being around Xun Er, he couldn’t keep any secrets. With a
depressed heart, he feebly nodded.
“Woah… not even a month had passed and you already got to 8 Duan Qi.
This speed… is quite scary.” Seeing Xiao Yan nod, even with Xun
Er’s calm nature, she showed a face of surprise.
Giving her a white eye to Xun Er, Xiao Yan’s face suddenly turned. Near
the wooden platform, there was a woman that was wrapped in a red dress
and was chatting with the people besides her. A circle of people
surrounded her, making the spot where she was at, the most popular circle
around the platform.
This red dressed woman that was attracting everyone was someone that Xiao
Yan had seen before! She was the top auctioneer of the Primer Auction
house, Ya Fei!
With his gaze lingering the water-snake like waist of Ya Fei, Xiao Yan
gave his opinion silently: “Really pretty!”
After Xiao Yan’s gaze had stayed on Ya Fei for a while, Xun Er’s
unhappy hump came from besides him.
“Ahem…” With his eyes blinking, Xiao Yan slowly retracted his gaze
to act as if he wasn’t staring at Ya Fei and smiled to the unhappy Xun
Er: “Did you know that the Primer Auction House came to our clan’s
Coming of Age Ceremony?”
Giving an evil stare to Xiao Yan who was acting as if nothing had
happened, Xun Er emotionlessly said: “Xiao Clan and the Primer Auction
House have always had a good relation so why is Ya Fei coming such a big
deal? In addition, this woman’s communication skills are confirmed
incredible by all of Wu Tan City. A couple of young masters that
befriended her for her beauty have spent an incredible amount of money on
her but in the end, they got nothing. If Xiao Yao ge-ge wants to try to
charm her then I can only say be careful. And, Xun Er won’t lend you
any money for those things.”
Hearing that, Xiao Yan bitterly smiled: “Even if I’m thinking about
those things, it requires that she, at the very least, acknowledges me.
You do realize that she’s at least 7 to 8 years older than me right?”
“Don’t some women like that?” Xun Er seemingly smiled while saying
Dryly coughing, Xiao Yan could only admit defeat and not look at that
circle of people again.
“Huh, why is she back?” Seeing that Xiao Yan wasn’t looking over
there anymore, Xun Er stopped pursuing the point and after a brief moment
of silence, she exclaimed out loud.
“Who?” After following Xun Er’s gaze, Xiao Yan’s brows slowly
The gaze of the two pointed to a girl that was wearing a school uniform
and was currently leaning on a tree. She had a sword equipped at her
waist, was quite tall and the most striking feature were her long legs,
legs that were so sexy that even Ya Fei’s legs paled in comparison to
“Xiao Ye?” While staring at the tall girl, Xiao Yan asked:
“Didn’t she go to Jia Nan Academy to train? Why did she come back?”
Xun Er cutely shrugged her shoulder while teasing: “Xiao Yan ge-ge,
this time, you might have some trouble.”
Cracking open his mouth, Xiao Yan rubbed his burning forehead while
saying: “This unruly woman is so annoying. Dammit, all I did was
accidentally stumble into her bathing spot in the back mountains and
accidentally touch her legs. She tried killing me for the majority of a
year after that!”
TL: Killing is used in joking manner, it means like severe beating in
“Hehe, a girl’s body isn’t meant to be touched carelessly.”
Hearing Xiao Yan’s story, Xun Er covered her mouth as she giggled.
Suddenly, she remembered how Xiao Yan had helped her during the night and
during that time, had contact with her body, causing a red blush to
appear on her face.
Xiao Yan pursed his lips while coldly smiling: “That woman is Xiao
Ning’s sister and they both aren’t good people. That bastard’s
enmity towards me is partly due to her.”
Far away, Xiao Yu seemed to have sensed the two talking about her and
turned around to find Xiao Yan under another tree. After a slight shock,
she furrowed her brows as distaste and disdain surfaced on her face.
After a pause, Xiao Yu moved her attractive long legs and started walking
towards Xiao Yan.
Seeing Xiao Yu coming over, Xiao Yan’s brows also furrowed as he showed
his disgust and impatience.
“Ha, Xiao Yan, I never thought that I would see the day that you turn
your situation around. It’s really surprising.” Coming closer, Xiao
Yu saw Xiao Yan undisguised dislike towards her and sneered.
“None of your business.”
Obviously, Xiao Yan wasn’t too pleased with Xiao Yu and his normal calm
had been abandoned with his vulgar words.
“Your words are still sharp and annoying as ever. Looks like the three
years of abjection didn’t smooth out your sharp vigor.” Xiao Yu
looked down upon Xiao Yan and said in a teaching tone.
This tone again… While letting out an annoyed breath in his mind, Xiao
Yan looked down and closely examined this girl that he had not seen for
almost an year. Moving his gaze to her legs, Xiao Yao touched his nose
while asking: “Your legs are still that long. I wonder if another male
touched them after that time.”
Hearing that, Xiao Yu who was sneering, stopped, as her face darkened.
