Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-533
Her voice was obviously a tender one and she had a cute appearance.
However, the strange aura the white-clothed little girl emitted caused
Xiao Yan’s mind to tense up.
He exchanged glances with her large dark-black eyes. A moment later, he
laughed dryly, “Little girl, this thing tastes awful. Why don’t you
give it to me.”
“I need to eat them if I want to grow up!” The little girl said
“It needs time for you to grow. By doing this, you are simply pulling
the shoot to help it grow and does not have any benefits.” Xiao Yan’s
face was calm, but his heart had become noisy. This strange little girl
had already eaten one rare medicinal ingredient, and he was the only one
who had just entered this medicinal ingredient management warehouse. It
was likely that he would be in some trouble if Elder Hao was to look into
“Time is useless to me!” The little girl’s face sunk a little when
she heard Xiao Yan’s words. She used her tender tone to speak loudly.
“Oh, heavens!” Xiao Yan weakly patted his forehead as he felt a wave
of a headache. Just where had this monster-like little girl ran out from?
Not only was her strength so great that it was frightening, but her words
were also quite strange. If she was just an ordinary little girl, Xiao
Yan would forcefully snatch the ‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’ even if he
had to bear the notoriety of being someone who bullied a child. However,
when he had sensed the frightening strength of that little girl, he could
only obediently keep this thoughts properly. He clearly knew that the
strength of this little girl, who had caused him to be unable to move
with just two fingers earlier, was likely to not end well if she were to
“Elder Hao will find trouble with you if you eat the medicinal
ingredients here.” Xiao Yan laughed bitterly and said.
“That old man? I am not afraid. He would not dare to do anything to me
even if he knew!” The little girl snorted as she rolled her eyes cutely.
Xiao Yan’s eyes twitched. His heart had started to move. This little
girl was so arrogant and defiant. Could she be a granddaughter of one of
the upper echelons of the Inner Academy? However, the position of Elders
in the academy were similar. If their children did something wrong, none
of them would dare to speak in this matter to the other Elders. Could it
be that this white-clothed little girl was the granddaughter of the First
Elder who had not shown himself or the granddaughter of the mysterious
“My mood is good today, so I will not beat you up. You should hurry up
and leave. Don’t bother me.” The little girl once again took another
bite of the ‘Hard Gold Pu’. She spoke in a vague voice as she chewed
her mouth. Once again, she swallowed a mouthful of the golden-yellow
liquid. However, she knit her brows slightly and muttered, “It tastes
Xiao Yan could not help but be speechless when he heard her muttering
from the side. If other alchemists were to see how she ruined such a rare
medicinal ingredient, and even mutter that it taste awful, they would
likely be so furious that smoke would rise from their nostrils no?
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head. He was just about to say something
when his heart moved slightly. An extremely gentle smile surfaced on his
face as he squatted down and said gently, “Little sister, these
medicinal ingredients taste awful, no?”
As his mouth uttered these words, Xiao Yan’s heart quietly scorned.
These medicinal ingredients contained extremely pure medicinal strength.
Their taste would naturally not be good if they were directly consumed.
“Ah ha, it’s awful!” The white-clothed little girl immediately
nodded her small head in agreement when she heard Xiao Yan’s words.
Although she appeared to have an indifference that was unusual for a
normal person, at this moment, it appeared that she was no different from
an ordinary little girl.
“If it taste awful, can you return this fruit to this older brother? I
will treat you to something nice.” Xiao Yan smiled and made a
suggestion. The smile on his face was just like that of a strange uncle
deceiving a little girl.
“No! It may taste awful, but will the things that you will treat me to
contain a large amount of energy within them?” The little girl
immediately became alert as she shook her head when she heard that Xiao
Yan wanted her to hand over the ‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’.
Xiao Yan’s smile became dull. These medicinal ingredients were all born
from the gathering of natural energy. How could an ordinary thing contain
such a powerful energy? However, by listening to the meaning in her
words, it appeared that she was eating these rare medicinal ingredients
for the pure medicinal strength within them. What caused Xiao Yan to feel
more flabbergasted was that the body of this little girl in front of him
was able to withstand the assault of the energy from the medicinal
ingredients that had yet to be refined. After all, they may possess pure
medicinal strength, but that energy was even wilder compared to that of a
medicinal pill. Xiao Yan had some doubts in his heart, but after he
thought of the various unusual actions of the little girl, he quietly
nodded. It was likely that this little girl was not an ordinary person.
Xiao Yan rubbed his head while feeling distressed A moment later, he said
in a probing manner, “Why don’t I help you slightly refine the
medicinal ingredients that you want to eat and turn them into something
that is tastier? This is better than eating the medicinal ingredients
“Refine?” The little girl’s chewing mouth paused slightly. Her
large dark-black eyes suddenly become a little brighter. “You are an
Xiao Yan thought that this matter could work in his heart when he saw the
expression of the little girl. He hurriedly nodded and said, “As long
as you return this ‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’ to me, I will help you
refine the medicinal ingredients that you want to eat until they become
tastier. What do you say?” Refining medicinal pills was an extremely
troublesome task, but it would not consume too much effort if the task
was merely refining a kind of medicinal ingredient until it turned into a
Yaowan and quietly adding a little other ingredients that made it taste
(TL: Danwan/Yaowan – pills that have no real medicinal effect to a human
and can potentially be harmful if consumed)
However, this kind of Yaowan that merely used one kind of medicinal
ingredient to refine did not escape the wild and violent nature of its
medicinal effect. Moreover, this kind of single medicinal effect did not
have too much use. Therefore, there was seldom anyone who would waste a
medicinal ingredient to refine it into a Yaowan that could not even be
considered a medicinal pill.
The little girl hesitated slightly when she heard this. She eyed the
‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’ which appeared very tasty in her hands.
After hesitating for a long while, she finally nodded unwillingly and
gave it to Xiao Yan. She grimaced in pain as she said, “However, if the
medicinal pill that you refine is not tasty, I will not only snatch it
back, but will also eat you!”
“Eat me? With that small mouth of yours?” Xiao Yan laughed in his
heart. He swiftly received the ‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’ before
stuffing it into his storage ring, afraid that this little girl of
unknown origin would regret her decision.
“You have already taken the thing. Hurry up and help me refine.” The
little girl handed over the ‘Hard Gold Pu’ in her hand which she had
taken two bites from to Xiao Yan as she said crisply.
“Hee hee, there is no need to hurry. Let us leave first, I have taken
the ‘Asparagus Ice Fire Fruit’ and need to account to Elder Hao.”
Xiao Yan said with a smile. After which, he took the lead to walk out of
the medicinal warehouse. He wanted to bring this strange little girl to
Elder Hao and tell him about the situation. Otherwise, if that old fellow
were to blame this consumption of the ‘Hard Gold Pu’ on him, Xiao Yan
would really suffer a great loss.
“What is there to account to that old fellow.” The little girl
murmured. She did not show the slightest sign of being worried as she
grabbed the ‘Hard Gold Pu’ and followed Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan only sighed in relief when he heard the sound of footsteps
behind him. He swiftly walked out of the medicinal warehouse and placed
the white jade onto the wall. Only after he saw the energy barrier once
again appear did his face immediately let out a smile as though he had
placed down a heavy burden.
“This broken defensive barrier does not have the slightest use. It is
but a decoration when it is activated.” The little girl by his side
smacked her lips. Her white, tender seemingly transparent hand pushed
into the energy barrier. It shuttled past a couple of times and there
seemed to be no resistance to her movement.
Xiao Yan opened his mouth and eyed the actions of this little girl. A
loss appeared in his eyes. Was the energy barrier really a decoration? As
he had this thought in his mind, he extended his hand and jabbed at the
energy barrier. However, when his hand came into contact with that round
light barrier, it appeared to have touched metal. He jabbed with some
strength and his finger felt a faint pain, but he did not even make the
slightest entry into it. Clearly, this energy barrier had an extremely
shocking defense… but… how could this little girl view it as though
it was nothing?
“Hee hee, stupid.” The little girl beside him eyed the actions of
Xiao Yan, and immediately laughed out loud. Her clear, tender laughter
reverberated unceasingly down the corridor.
Xiao Yan withdrew his finger in an embarrassed manner. He was about to
say something when the white-clothed little girl snorted. She turned her
body in an unrestrained manner and strode toward the exit of the
corridor, leaving only the back of her head to Xiao Yan.
“This little girl… just what kind of a monster is she?” Xiao Yan
was speechless as he eyed the back of the little girl. His heart could
not help but feel a helplessness as he sighed.
Elder Hao still had his head buried in the desk in front of him within
the quiet room as he looked over the document within. He did not raise
his head as he smiles said after hearing the door being opened, “What?
Xiao Yan, have you found the medicinal ingredient that you need?”
After his words sounded, however, Elder Hao sensed that there was
something wrong with the atmosphere. Only then did he lift his head and
saw Xiao Yan’s face which was filled with helplessness. His gaze
shifted down before a white-clothed little girl with long pale-purple
hair appeared in his gaze.
Elder Hao blinked his old eyes and eyed the white-clothed little girl. A
moment later, he recovered and immediately leaped from his chair. He said
furiously, “Why are you here again?” When his gaze saw the ‘Hard
Gold Pu’ in the little girl’s hand where two bites had been taken,
his furious eyes widened. “Are you treating this place of mine as a
restaurant, coming here regularly to have a sumptuous meal? If you want
medicinal ingredients, don’t you know to go into the deep mountains to
search for them?”
“It is so troublesome to look for them myself. There are ready-made
ones here. Why can’t I eat them? Old man, you really speak a lot of
nonsense. If you continue to grumble, be careful of me beating you up.”
The little girl glanced at Elder Hao from the side of her eyes. She
appeared to be protesting and had even widened her mouth to take a bite
of the ‘Hard Gold Pu’.
Elder Hao was angered by this little girl’s arrogance until he rolled
his eyes. However, this Elder who was much respected by the students in
this Inner Academy could only resent with grit teeth. Looking at his
matter, it appeared that he was quite fearful of this little girl in
front of him.
“You should hurry up. You still need to refine something for me. If you
continue to delay, I will gulp you down.” The little girl’s tender
voice urged as her gaze turned toward Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan felt lost at the identity of the little girl when he saw the
conversation between the two of them. He let out a bitter smile as he
took a step forward and said, “Elder Hao, I have already taken the
thing that I need. You can check it. Please give me two sets of medicinal
ingredients for the ‘Dragon Strength Pill’. I will help you refine
Elder Hao’s expression quietly became a little better after hearing
Xiao Yan’s words. He took out a large pile of medicinal ingredients and
placed it on the table. In a soft voice, he said, “Why have you bumped
into her? Are you alright?” Hearing the meaning behind his words, it
appeared that this little girl was like an evil demon that ate people.
Nevertheless, it was true that the latter frequently used the words
‘gulp you down’ to threaten people.
“I don’t know either.” Xiao Yan shook his head while smiling
bitterly. He stored the medicinal ingredients on the table properly and
gave a short summary of the events earlier.
“Uh… you are really quite unlucky. Ah, serve this great-grandaunt
properly. Don’t let her go crazy. Otherwise, it will be very
frightening.” Elder Hao patted Xiao Yan’s shoulders with some
sympathy as he spoke.
TL: The word great-grandaunt is used to describe a person who is very
difficult to please/serve
Xiao Yan’s entire body felt uneasy because of this manner of Elder Hao.
He could not resist asking, “Just what kind of person is she?”
“Person? Who said she is human?” Elder Hao rolled his eyes, twitched
his mouth and replied.
TL: The words for person / human are the same in chinese but the
translation is different.
“She… she is not a human?” Xiao Yan was slightly startled. His
forehead was filled with cold sweat as his voice formed words.
