Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-56
For the Primer Auction House, today was definitely the busiest day in the
past half a year. Inside the expansive and spacious reception lounge,
many people were chattering away and moving about which made Xiao Yan’s
group head hurt with all of the noise. It was as if a large buzzing
insect was flying around in their ears and wouldn’t leave.
Looking at the crowd so densely packed together that even an ant
couldn’t get through, Xiao Zhan shook his head helplessly. It would be
for the best for the auction house security guards to help escort his
group through the VIP entrance. That would be the best way to get in.
Inside the Auction House, although the number of people was definitely
not too few, compared to the lounge outside, it was relatively peaceful.
Xiao Zhan looked around the bustling floor as he walked along casually
with Xiao Yan and some other clan members to find their seats.
Sitting on one of the edge seats, Xiao Yan looked around the hall with a
bored expression while leaning back in his chair without a care in the
“Elder Sister, in another half a year, the enrollment period of Jia Nan
Academy will start right?” Xiao Yan was leisurely sitting and almost
fell asleep when his ears picked up the question Xiao Ning had asked. The
mentioning of that special name caused his eyebrows to raise slightly in
Jia Nan Academy, a famous Dou Qi Academy in the Dou Qi Mainland, was
armed with a strength that wildly exceeds the common man’s imagination.
It is said that one has to be about Da Dou Shi level to become a teacher
in Jia Nan Academy. And, even the famous Misty Cloud Faction cannot match
up to the might of Jia Nan Academy.
In the Dou Qi Mainland, Academies are somewhat different from clans. If
one joins a clan, he would not only be restricted by the clan but would
also have to watch his every action as it would reflect back on the clan.
An academy was different since all ties would be cut off after graduation!
Even though that is said, humans are not unfeeling animals. In an ivory
tower like the academy, students become easily attached to the academy.
After graduating, these faint feelings will become the reason why
graduates are willing to support the academy to the best of their
One person’s help might not make much of a difference but if there were
thousands or tens of thousands of people helping, that would be quite a
scary force….. and this, was the aim of every academy.
Enrolling into an academy was also the best shortcut in obtaining Dou
Techniques and Qi Methods. At an academy on the level of Jia Nan, if
one’s performance was stellar, he might catch the eye of a teacher,
which would open up doors to high level Qi Methods and Dou Techniques.
With these two in hand, the distance to becoming a strong Dou Zhe would
be shortened by quite a bit.
Qi Methods, Dou Techniques and Alchemy Pills are the three most sought
after commodities in the Dou Qi Mainland. Jia Nan Academy dominates in
two of these fields, thus people all over the mainland believe that if
one were able to enter Jia Nan Academy, one would never again need to
worry about their future. Everyone who graduates from Jia Nan Academy is
a highly sought after talent with bright prospects.
Therefore, every year, countless youths from all over Jia Ma Country try
all sorts of ideas in hopes of somehow getting into Jia Nan Academy.
Thus, Jia Nan Academy is definitely a great place, however it’s
enrolment criterias are extremely strict: To reach the 9th Duan Dou Qi
before the age of 18!
These requirements bar many of the less talented people and thus only the
truly gifted are left to enter Jia Nan Academy.
Having heard Xiao Ning’s inquiry, Xiao Yu gave a slight nod. With a
quick glance at Xiao Yan, she proudly replied: “Fret not, you have
already fulfilled the criteria. Furthermore the one in charge of
recruitment in Wu Tan City is my teacher, who is a 5 star Da Dou Shi.
Together with the fact that I am here to put in a word for you, there is
definitely no problem for you at all.”
“Haha, that’s great.” Having heard her reply, Xiao Ning’s face
lit up like fireworks and nodded his head in excitement.
Hearing their conversation, Xiao Yan’s mouth slightly twitched. If it
was before, he could only enter Jia Nan Academy in hopes of obtaining
higher tier Dou Techinques and Qi Methods. But now, since he had Yao Lao,
whose origins remained a mystery, as a teacher, Jia Nan Academy no longer
“Does Xiao Yan ge-ge not plan to take the entrance test for Jia Nan
Academy in half a year?” Xun Er softly asked, having picked up Xiao
Yan’s lack of interest.
At Xun Er’s question, Xiao Yu raised her brow and cast a gaze towards
the two, she had already made up her mind that if the little bastard was
going to try to go to Jia Nan Academy, she would tell her teacher to make
him suffer a bit.
Xiao Yan rubbed his nose and lazily replied: “Not interested. What
could I possibly learn with a bunch of wimpy kids? If I wanted Dou
Techniques, jumping off cliffs in search for hidden treasures would be
“Humph, what a boastful tone. Do you really think an Academy would beg
for you to join? Don’t be so arrogant just because you’re blessed
with a bit of talent; there are many in Jia Nan Academy who could easily
match you. In fact, not entering would be better for you, given your
hateful character, all you would find there is a world of beatings.” At
Xiao Yan’s belittlement of the academy she was intensely proud of, Xiao
Yu interjected icily as her expression turned frosty.
Xiao Yan turned his sight to sweep over the indignant Xiao Yu, the sides
of his mouth slanted downwards, yet he could not be bothered with her.
His promise with Nalan Yanran would need to be fulfilled in less than two
years. The only goal he had now was to surpass that woman.
There was not much time left but the difference between them was still
too vast. Xiao Yan did not believe that there was anyone in Jia Nan
Academy who would be able to help him surpass Nalan Yanran in the two
Since they could not help him, why would he bother to enroll into that
lousy academy? Unless they could instruct him in the Alchemy Arts like
Yao Lao? But even if they could, could they match up to Yao Lao’s
Shaking his head, Xiao Yan decided not to debate with her about academies
anymore. Taking a look around, he found that two other large clan’s
members had also entered the auction.
After yet another crowd had passed by, Xiao Yan suddenly felt a cold
gaze. Briefly turning, he realised the owner of the gaze was the one he
had clashed with in the marketplace: Jia Lie Ao.
Currently, the young master of the Jia Lie Clan was staring at him with
malicious intent while occasionally sneaking lustful glances at the
exquisite figure of Xun Er beside him. This caused Xiao Yan to stare
back, eliciting an evil smile from the young master.

Coolly staring at Jia Lie Ao whose mouth kept opening and closing, Xiao
Yan was barely able to decipher his intentions: “Little useless trash
from the Yan Clan, you have finally completed your Coming of Age ritual
right? Better not let the young master see you in Wu Tan City or
else….. heh heh!”
Slightly squinting at Jia Lie Ao who had burst out into laughter, Xiao
Yan faintly smiled as a viscous light flashed in his eyes.
