Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-399
That Elder Qing from the ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ did not hesitate at
all in the face of the dense, dark cry of Fan Lao. Her expression was
dark and solemn as she let out a stern cry. Powerful Dou Qi surged from
within her body, and her strong aura directly shook the leaves and plants
on the ground around her until they shot backward. From this force of
hers, her strength should have already advanced to the Dou Wang level.
Under this cry of hers, the twenty plus strong people from the ‘Sky
Serpent Mansion’ around her also let out a “chang” sound as they
grabbed their weapons and allow their Dou Qi to surge out. Threads of
different snake shaped Dou Qi cycled around their bodies before flowing
away, finally and abruptly erupting with terrifying force, which charged
toward those red-robed warriors around them.
Two torrents, one green and one red, violently collided, meeting in the
middle of the main road. A wave of energy ripples began to shoot out like
When the cruel and numb faced Blood Sect warriors violently hacked their
knives downward, they were surrounded by a bloody aura. They did not emit
the slightest sound. The strong people from the ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’
also had dark, solemn faces as they circulated the Dou Qi in their bodies
to the limit. Their weapons, which were covered by Dou Qi, carried the
‘si si’ souds in the air being cut as they trickily and viciously
targeted the vitals of the Blood Sect warriors.
The strong people from both sides were not mediocre people. Not only were
their strengths powerful, but it was also clear that they were well
trained. Although there were no loud noises, a bloody fight to the death
was buried deep within the slaughter. Frequently, there would be the
muffled sounds of sharp weapons piercing into flesh. Fresh blood would
Elder Qing’s expression was ice cold. She held a snake-shaped
longsword. Each time the curved arc of the sword rotated bizarrely, it
would slip past the neck of a Blood Sect warrior. After which, it would
carry a blood scar as fresh blood which came gushing out. During the time
the fresh blood drifted, she would move in a flash, much like a Sand
Mandala Snake which was agile and vicious.
Corpses gradually piled up on the side of the road. Most among them were
people from the Blood Sect. Although, there were also some from the
‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ among them. However, no matter how Elder Qing
led the people to make a killing charge forward, there would be an
unceasing number of Blood Sect warriors charging out from within the
forest, breaking her intention of fleeing into the forest.
Elder Qing’s eyes were cold as she penetrated the chest of a Blood
Sect’s warrior with a stab of her sword. Her gaze swiftly swept across
her surroundings and her heart sank as she discovered that the nearly
twenty ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ elites that had been by her side at the
beginning had been reduced to a mere eight people.
The snake sword in her hand stabbed out explosively behind her and
pierced through the throat of a Blood Sect warrior, who had planned to
launch a sneak attack. Her shoulders shook slightly and a pair of wings
agglomerated from green-colored Dou Qi that swiftly surfaced. Her feet
gently pushed off the ground as her old body suddenly rose into the sky.
However, she was just about to turn around and flee, a shadow suddenly
shot past barreling through the sky. A cold, dark majestic force
immediately came pressing down violently from the sky. Due to the force
being too strong, it actually caused the sound barrier to be broken,
releasing an explosive sound along the way.
Sensing the majestic force that was transmitted from above her head, the
expression of Elder Qing changed slightly. She raised both her hands, and
a green glow shone brightly from the top downward, wrapping her entire
body within it.
The majestic force fell and violently smashed into the green-colored
light cover that Elder Qing had just created. The latter trembled
intensely and finally could not withstand the attack a moment later.
Following a slight sound, the light cover shattered in the air. Elder
Qing within it also emitted a muffled groan and her expression was much
paler as she fell.
“Ha ha, Elder Qing, I have already said, no one should be thinking of
leaving this place today!” A red shadow flashed in the sky. The pair of
fresh blood-like Dou Qi wings on Fan Lao’s back were extremely
eye-piercing. As they flapped, one could even faintly smell a bloody
scent drifting in the wind.
Fan Lao’s gave a thick laugh. He did not give Elder Qing an opportunity
to catch her breath. With a flap of the blood wings on his back, his body
suddenly shot downward, much like a blood sucking bat which had locked
onto its prey.
Seeing Fan Lao pouncing over, that pale faced Elder Qing could only
violently grit her teeth as she drew her sword to meet him. As the Dou Qi
in her body was circulating at maximum speed, an incomparably ferocious
Dou Qi directly caused the surrounding air to emit a slight undulation.
From the looks of it, this Elder Qing had already unleashed her strength
to the maximum in order to escape from the hands of the Dou Huang class
Fan Lao alive.
Seeing the brutal battle to the death on the path below and then
carefully watching the fight in the sky, which was basically one sided,
Xiao Yan, who was hiding in the thicknet, could not resist shaking his
head. He muttered, “Looks like the people from the ‘Sky Serpent
Mansion’ don’t have the any chance of escaping alive today.”
“Ah, the Blood Sect must have spent quite a lot of effort in order to
place a large force in ambush here without alerting any other factions.
No matter how alert the people from the ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ are,
they will likely have difficulty escaping today.” Yao Lao nodded his
head and said.
“That Fan Ling is also below. However, there are always two strong Dou
Lings protecting him. It is quite troublesome.” Xiao Yan’s gaze swept
across the battlefield below. At that spot, Fan Ling was holding a blood
knife as he hacked a strong person from the ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’
into two, while wearing a vicious smile. Regardless of what happened, the
two old men beside him were no more than a meter away from him.
“Do not rush to strike against that Fan Ling. Otherwise, if Fan Lao
were to sense it, things would become a little troublesome. Due to that
damn ‘Hall of Souls’, I can no longer lend you my spiritual strength
fearlessly like I have in the past. Therefore, you must act cautiously
when you meet these strong people in the future.” Yao Lao’s deep
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. He gently inhaled a breath of air and
suppressed the anxiety within his heart and quietly observed the
development occurring below.
There may be many people from the Blood Sect, but the group from the
‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ was clearly stronger than those of the former.
Therefore, by relying on tacit mutual cooperation this seemingly shaky
group could ultimately endure and not be destroyed despite their bodies
being full of injuries. Those who could follow Elder Qing to come to the
chaotic region called ‘Black-Corner Region’ did indeed have some
Although the ground was firmly holding out, the Dou Wang class strength
of Elder Qing’s in the sky was no match for Fan Lao, who was a strong
Dou Huang. The latter’s movement was swift and ghost like. After merely
exchanging over ten blows, the expression of the pale-faced Elder Qing
grew even more pale.
Elder Qing was once again forced to receive the palm of Fan Lao in
midair. The strong force which surged out from the point of contact
between their palms directly caused Elder Qing to spit out a mouthful of
fresh blood. Her body was swiftly forced back while Fan Lao closely gave
chase without giving up in a manner similar to wanting to take a life
from one who was sick.
Elder Qing suddenly lifted her head as she hurriedly pulled back. Her
originally pretty face was at this moment filled with a savageness. She
swayed her hand and a cold jade box appeared in her palm. With a sharp,
stern cry, she said, “Old demon Fan, if you dare to come over, the old
me will let this ‘Yin-Yang Mysterious Dragon Pill’ turn into powder
on the spot.”
“Duo!” The figure which was pouncing over from the front suddenly
stopped. Fan Lao darkly eyed Elder Qing and slowly said, “If you dare
to destroy the ‘Yin-Yang Mysterious Dragon Pill’, I will cripple your
Dou Qi, and then lock you up in the Blood Sect and rear you like a pig or
a dog, made specially to wait on the men of our Blood Sect.
The words spat out by the calm tone were so vicious, that they caused
people’s entire body to feel a chill.
As she thought of this fate where death was better than living, Elder
Qing’s expression could not help but change even with her mental
strength. The hand, which held the cold jade box, could not resist
Just as Elder Qing was shocked by the vicious words of Fan Lao until she
became a little absent-minded, Fan Lao’s body shook suddenly and
actually disappeared into nothingness.
Elder Qing sensed something the moment Fan Lao’s body disappeared. Her
expression changed abruptly, but before she had the time to pull back, a
vague red shadow appeared in front of her. A blood red hand shot out
explosively and violently cut at Elder Qing’s arm. The sound of a bone
breaking could immediately be heard.
The intense pain transmitted from her hand directly caused Elder Qing to
involuntarily let out a shrill cry. She did not have the time to keep the
cold jade box before it was snatched away by Fan Lao in a lightning like
manner. The latter smiled and hurriedly retreated.
As he pulled back, Fan Lao swiftly opened the cold jade box. A golden
light was shot out immediately. The wild joy and pride on his face grew
even more dense as he swiftly closed the box and threw it toward Fan Ling
below. He shouted, “Ling-er. Take it and withdraw first. Blood Guards
of the Blood Sect, protect the Junior Sect Leader until he reaches Mu Zhi
City! I will block everyone here!”
Fan Ling hurriedly leaped up and grabbed the cold jade box with his hands
when he heard the command. He swiftly squeezed it into his storage ring
and no longer hesitated. With a wave of his hand, over ten Blood Guards
left the battleground. The group of people, with Fan Ling as the leader,
changed direction and swiftly hurried toward the south.
“Ah! Bastard Fan. I will not let you have an easy time even if I have
to stake my own life today!” Elder Qing’s face turned green when the
most important thing was snatched right out of her hands. She lifted her
head and emitted a shrill. A frightening Dou Qi, that was two to three
times stronger than before, came erupting from her body in all
directions. As the Dou Qi surged wildly, some fresh blood actually began
to overflow from under Elder Qing’s skin.
Elder Qing’s eyes were vicious as she stared at Fan Lao, who was
frowning slightly. She held the snake sword tightly and flapped the wings
on her back. Her body turned into a ray of light, carrying a sharp,
explosive sound that spread all over the sky as she struck wildly at Fan
“A counter-attack just before death, huh? Hei, no matter how you
struggle, you will never be a match for me.” Fan Lao’s laughed when
he saw that Elder Qing’s strength had abruptly soared. He curled his
hand slightly and a long knife, which appeared to be coagulated from
fresh blood, surfaced on his palm. He held the long knife in his hand as
the knife trembled slightly. A bloody aura immediately began to spread.
Fan Lao held the blood knife tightly and did not show any sign of
shrinking away or pulling back. He chose the method of fighting head on
as he turned into a blood colored shadow, which carried a bloody scent
that spread throughout the sky as he violently collided with Elder Qing.
An explosion immediately resounded throughout the horizon.
After Fan Ling obtained the jade box and withdrew, Xiao Yan had also
quietly snuck out of the thicket. He was like an agile monkey as he
passed through the forest and closely tailed Fan Ling’s group. His
footsteps paused a little when he heard the loud sound that reverberated
throughout the sky. His eyes turned to look at the sky behind him. His
gaze landed where two glows, one green and one red, had each occupied
half of the sky.
“Hopefully not all the people of the ‘Sky Serpent Mansion’ die.”
Xiao Yan sighed gently and no longer paused. He turned around and once
again locked onto his target, a large red shadow at the edge of his
sight. He did not have any deep relation with the ‘Sky Serpent
Mansion’. Naturally, it was not possible for him to rescue them. In
this ‘Black-Corner Region’, forget about the so called ‘acting out
at the sight of injustice’. Even if you shouted and walked forward as
though nothing had happened after shouting, that would also similarly
attract a countless number of knives hacking at you.
Moreover, Xiao Yan currently had difficulty protecting himself. If he
were to go and stick his nose into other people’s business, it would
clearly be an extremely foolish thing. Therefore, he could only mutter a
little quietly in his heart.
The only aim he had now was to use any means to snatch back the map
fragment from Fan Ling.
