Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-374
Within the dense forest, Xiao Yan clenched his teeth and stared intently
at Yun Yun in the sky. He knew that the moment the latter appeared, he
was likely to have his position completely revealed. It was just that he
did not know if this woman who once had some entanglement with him
In the sky, Yun Yun, who had her eyes closed, gradually opened them. She
slowly lifted her delicate finger which was struggling and trembling a
little, and pointed toward the direction Xiao Yan was in. As her finger
pointed at that spot, a faint white glow suddenly surged out from within
the darkness. Although the white light was not too intense, it was
undoubtedly a bright lamp leading the way in this complete darkness.
As he lowered his head to watch the faint white glow that was being
emitted from within his body, Xiao Yan’s heart was like an icehouse. He
laughed softly and lifted his head. His cold gaze watched the person with
peerless elegance in the sky before turning his body and running.
In the sky, Yun Yun had also borrowed the weak, white light to clearly
see the glance which was so cold that it was void of emotion. She felt a
pain that clamped at her heart as her pretty face grew even paler.
Seeing the faint white light which had risen from the darkness, joy
surfaced on the faces of the three elders. They let out a fierce cry and
wild winds surged in the sky. Tens of huge shadows were chasing after the
faint white light within the forest, ready to slaughter!
Yun Yun’s body was suspended in midair. She eyed the flying unit
chasing swiftly after the white glow within the forest. Her hand slowly
tightened, her long fingers piercing deeply into her palm. Some red blood
flowed along her fingers and dripped down.
“I’m sorry.” She laughed mockingly at herself in the night sky,
clearly knowing that by pointing with her finger earlier, she had truly
killed any feelings Xiao Yan had toward her. However, even if she was
extremely unwilling to do this, her position as a Sect Leader reminded
her of her duty at all times. Regardless of the time, the sect’s
benefit was the most important thing! The her who had grown up in the
Misty Cloud Sect from a young age had this thought instilled into her for
so many years. It was easier said than done if she wanted to change.
Xiao Yan’s expression was green as he glanced at the white glow which
was being emitted uncontrollably from within his body. The sound of
pressuring wind in the sky that was swiftly being transmitted over caused
the corner of his mouth to twitch. His shoulders trembled slightly and
the Purple Cloud Wings suddenly exploded forth. With a press of his feet
against a tree branch, his body rose into the air. After that, his toes
pressed against the sea of trees and his body turned into a white light
that swiftly passed over it, as though he was chasing the stars and moon.
He did not use the Purple Cloud Wings in the past because he was afraid
that his body would be discovered. However, his position was currently
totally exposed. It would be useless for him to continue hiding.
Although he had already raised his speed to the limit, the three strong
pressuring force behind him did not weaken by even a little. Instead, it
was showing a tendency of becoming stronger. The Purple Cloud Wings may
have been able to gift Xiao Yan the ability to fly, but his speed was
ultimately inferior compared to a pair of true Dou Qi wings.
“Humph, Xiao Yan, little fellow. Tonight is the time you die! You think
you can escape after killing my Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples?” A dark
and cold cry that contained killing intent broke through the air not far
behind him and resounded throughout the mountain forest.
Xiao Yan did not even pay the slightest attention to the cry that had
been transmitted from behind. He swiftly flapped the Purple Cloud Wings
on his back, and his body was like a falling star in the night sky as he
flew past the sea of trees in a lightning-like manner. Due to the wind
pressure created by the high speed, he left a long trace above the sea of
“Try your best to persevere. The energy trace in your body has been
lured out by Yun Yun. Give me a little time and I will be able to
suppress it.” Yao Lao’s voice sounded from within Xiao Yan’s heart
while the latter focused completely on fleeing.
Xiao Yan could only nod his head slightly. The corner of his eyes drifted
toward the three flowing lights behind him which were becoming
increasingly close and could not resist twitching. Xiao Yan gritted his
teeth hard. The Dou crystal within the vortex in his body, that was
emitting a bright light, trembled slightly. Waves of pure liquid energy
flowed out from within it before moving along the veins and swiftly
circulated. They were finally poured into the pair of Purple Cloud Wings
on his back.
Upon receiving this large amount of energy as fuel, a faint purple glow
began to gradually appear from the pair of Purple Cloud Wings. Some
strange lines had also surfaced on the wings. As they flapped, there was
actually a faint wind and lightning sound which appeared somewhat
After this strange change appeared on the Purple Cloud Wings, his speed
had also suddenly soared greatly. It was actually able to increase the
gap between Xiao Yan and the three Misty Cloud Sect Elders behind by a
little within a short period of time.
“What? This fellow’s speed has actually gone up by so much?” Behind
Xiao Yan, a Misty Cloud Sect Elder saw the former’s speed suddenly
increase. His expression changed slightly as he spoke involuntarily.
“Moreover, the white light that is being emitted from his body is also
becoming increasingly weak. Looks like he is suppressing that energy
ripple. Yun Ke, Yun Zhong, let’s not hold anything back. If we let him
escape from our hands once more, what right do we have to be Elders?”
That old man, who was the oldest among them, had an icy cold expression
as he cried out in a deep voice.
“Yes.” Hearing this, the other two people replied in unison. As their
voices fell, three powerful forces surged out of each of their bodies.
Immediately, the Dou Qi wings which were originally around five feet in
length suddenly expanded until they were over ten feet long.
The wings flapped in union and a thundering rumble resonated through the
air. Immediately, the three figures strangely disappeared from the spot
they were in as though they had teleported. When they reappeared, they
were actually already tens of meters away.
“This is bad.” The ear-piercing sound of rushing wind that had been
transmitted from behind him caused Xiao Yan’s expression to change. The
corner of his eyes hurriedly drifted back to take a look. He was shocked
to realize that three ghost-like figures were actually not even twenty
meters away from him.
A few fleeing methods flashed in his heart in a lightning-like manner,
but Xiao Yan finally rejected all of them. An instant later, he violently
clenched his teeth and stepped heavily onto the sea of trees.
Immediately, his body directly landed within a forest.
“Putt, putt.”The dense branches struck his face, causing Xiao Yan to
gently inhale a few breaths of cool air. When his feet touched the
ground, however, his eyes suddenly shrunk. From his perception, he had
suddenly realized that there were dozens of obscure Qis within this
forested area where he had landed.
“Have I fallen for the other side’s scheme?” A shocking thought
flashed in his heart. Suddenly, a shadow pounced out from the side before
the body swiftly nestled close to Xiao Yan. One hand covered Xiao Yan’s
“Xiao Yan di-di, it’s me. Don’t panic!” Just as the Dou Qi in
Xiao Yan’s body was about to spew out and shake the person who had
nestled close to him away, a numbing, soft sound could be heard.
TL: di-di – meaning younger brother (not blood related in this case, just
a form of address)
When he heard this familiar voice, the Dou Qi in Xiao Yan’s body which
was about to explode out suddenly became dull. He lowered his head and
borrowed the weak white glow being emitted from within his body to see an
enchantingly exquisite face that contained some concern.
“Ya Fei jie?” The familiar face caused Xiao Yan to quietly sigh in
relief. He said in a surprised but soft voice, “What are you doing
here? Hurry up and leave!”
TL: jie – older sister (not blood related in this case, just a form of
“Shush. Don’t worry, those three Elders from the Misty Cloud Sect are
temporarily being held back by Old Hai. This is a map of the Magical
Beast Mountain Range. You can use it to help you leave the Jia Ma Empire.
Hurry up and leave. Walk toward the south of this place. As long as you
get out of the forest and sneak into the city, the Misty Cloud Sect will
have a much more difficult time trying to catch you!” Ya Fei swiftly
took out a map from within her storage ring, pressed it into Xiao Yan’s
hand as she spoke in a hurried voice.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He lifted his head and eyed the
sky which was covered by the dense tree cover. There were indeed numerous
fierce energy ripples which were being emitted from the night sky there.
“You all… “ Xiao Yan held the map tightly and eyed the pretty face
which was covered with anxiety. He suddenly felt his throat being
blocked. After he announced war with the Misty Cloud Sect, this enormous
being, only Ya Fei and Old Hai had extended their helping hand toward
him. He clearly knew that this action of the Primer clan would bring them
a lot of trouble. After all, no matter how one put it, the Misty Cloud
Sect was the strongest faction within the Jia Ma Empire.
“Ya Fei jie, I, Xiao Yan, am not some beast who doesn’t know how to
repay favors given. I, Xiao Yan, will not forget the kindness you and Old
Hai have given until I die. If this Xiao Yan were to return to the Jia Ma
Empire in the future, I will definitely repay this kindness by a
hundredfold!” Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of air and said in a deep
“Ke ke, jie-jie believes that you will be a truly strong person the
next time we meet. This is the conclusion I came to three years ago.”
Ya Fei smiled as she spoke. Her delicate hand touched the delicate and
handsome face of the young man, which was covered by a piercing coldness.
“Alright, hurry up and leave. The flying unit of the Misty Cloud Sect
is about to hurry over. Moreover, Yun Yun will arrive soon.”
“Yes.” Xiao Yan nodded his head. He lowered it and eyed the
bewitching face. Suddenly, he extended his hand and violently embraced
her. His face was extended into her soft long hair and deeply inhaled the
refreshing fragrance of her hair. He softly said, “Ya Fei jie, the next
time that we meet, I will definitely not refuse any request of yours as
long as I, Xiao Yan, am able to achieve it.”
Ya Fei was initially startled when she was suddenly roughly hugged by
Xiao Yan. A bright, intoxicating redness immediately surfaced on her
enchanting face. After she heard Xiao Yan’s words, a teasing glint
flashed in her peach blossom-like eyes. She said in a gentle voice,
“Little fellow, this is something you have said. A great man cannot
repudiate his promises.”
“As long as I can achieve it, I, Xiao Yan, will not reject it, even if
you want to be a Queen.” Xiao Yan released the narrow waist which was
so soft that it appeared boneless before laughing boldly.
“Jie-jie is not interested in being a Queen.” Ya Fei covered her
mouth and laughed softly. She immediately remembered that they were
pressed for time and hurriedly rebuked him by patting Xiao Yan’s head
and urged, “Hurry and leave!”
“Ya Fei jie, goodbye. Help me tell Old Hai that I, Xiao Yan, will never
forget this favor of his today until I die!” Xiao Yan nodded his head
heavily. He ceased procrastinating, cupped his hands toward Ya Fei, and
immediately turned around. His body charged into the darkness of the
black forest in a lightning-like manner.
Ya Fei stood on the original spot and watched the back of the figure
which had faded away into the darkness. A long while later, she sighed in
an absentminded manner and said softly, “Little fellow. Jie-jie awaits
your return. Three years ago, I knew that this small Jia Ma Empire would
not be able to keep you. With your talent, the vast continent is the only
stage where you can display your true strength.”
“Jie-jie will await your return. When that time comes, I believe that
even the Misty Cloud Sect can only hide and tremble under your feet!”
“Flying unit, go and capture Xiao Yan!” An angry cry suddenly sounded
in the sky.
As the cry sounded, tens of flying Magical Beasts in the night sky
immediately made a detour around the battleground in the sky, and pounced
toward the increasingly weak white glow within the forest.
Within the forest, Ya Fei raised her head and coldly watched the huge
flying beasts that had flown over. She waved her hand and coldly cried,
“Shadow Guards, listen up. Cut them down!”
Ya Fei’s voice had just fell when tens of shadows from the darkness of
the surrounding forest suddenly shot out. Their Dou Qi surged immediately
and almost expelled all the darkness in this section of the forest.
When he heard the waves of rioting sounds that were transmitted from far
behind him, Xiao Yan tightened his fist. He placed the map into his
storage ring. The white light that was currently emitted from within his
body had completely disappeared under Yao Lao’s suppression.
Xiao Yan’s gaze swiftly swept in all directions. Once he had regained
his bearings, his toes pressed gently against the ground and his body
shot forward explosively, like an arrow that had left the string of a bow.
“Shi.” The rushing figure shot forward nearly a distance of a hundred
meters in a lightning-like manner. Suddenly, Xiao Yan’s expression
changed abruptly. His feet hooked onto a tree branch and his body was
straight as it fell forward. He immediately made a three hundred and
sixty degree turn. He twisted his body and steadily landed on a tree
Xiao Yan stood on the tree branch and eyed the edge of the forest not far
away with icy cold eyes. At that spot, a moon white robe was gently
fluttering. A pretty face that could be called peerlessly elegant was
Xiao Yan gaze was cold as it swept across the face. He suddenly tightened
his fist. The final person who had appeared to stop him was shockingly
