Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-626
Xiao Yan’s expression was somewhat gloomy as he walked out from the
meeting room. He lifted his head only to see that Lin Yan was standing
not far away. The gloominess on his face was slowly withdrawn as he
smiled toward the latter.
“It is really unexpected that you actually remained in the Inner
Academy.” Xiao Yan slowly walked forward and spoke with a smile.
“Didn’t I say back then that I wanted to follow you to the Jia Ma
Empire?” Lin Yan smiled and shrugged his shoulders. He had become much
more mature compared to two years ago. Quite a lot of his original
impulsiveness had also disappeared.
Xiao Yan was startled. His face immediately became gentle as he smiled.
It was really unexpected that Lin Yan had actually remembered those words
back then. This caused Xiao Yan to be moved on top of being surprised.
“You can rest assured that once some of the things here are settled, I
will return to the Jia Ma Empire. I will definitely bring you along at
that time.” Xiao Yan laughed before turning his gaze over to Lin
Yan’s body. He smiled and said, “Looks like you have also been doing
quite well during these two years. You have even broken through to become
an elite Dou Wang.”
“Ugh, how can I compare with an abnormal fellow like you.” Lin Yan
smiled bitterly, and shook his head. Even though his training talent was
quite great, he had merely reached a three star Dou Wang during these
three years. He definitely felt a sense of inferiority when compared with
Xiao Yan. However, he was unaware that the amount of suffering that Xiao
Yan had to undergo in order to swiftly rise in strength was many times
more than what an ordinary person had to face.
Xiao Yan smiled, but did not continue to be entangled in this topic.
“You are planning to go to where your second brother is next, right?”
Lin Yan spoke, “I am also aware about the issue with your second
brother. This is because I was coincidentally sent by the First Elder to
protect him back then. However, he discovered me after his strength had
soared and we nearly exchanged blows.”
“What is my second brother’s current strength like?” Xiao Yan knit
his brows slightly and felt an uneasy feeling in his heart.
“Very strong. If it is one against one, I would not be a match for him.
Additionally, his Dou Qi is of the lightning affinity with extremely
strong offensive strength. An ordinary elite Dou Wang is no match for
him. However… I kept having the feeling that his aura is somewhat
strange, but I cannot quite describe it.” Lin Yan mused for a moment
Xiao Yan nodded quietly before speaking in a soft voice, “I will make a
trip to ‘Pan’s Gate’ first to take a look at Wu Hao and the others.
After which, I will hurry to the ‘Black-Corner Region’.”
“Ke ke, this time around, you might need to bring along some
helpers.” Lin Yan smiled and spoke, “According to our information,
those factions that have gone to encircle your second brother this time
around are all extremely strong. There are at least three people among
them who are elite Dou Wangs. Moreover, there is also one Dou Huang.
Although your strength is currently extremely strong, as long as the Dou
Huang is able to delay you for a moment, it is likely that the other
three expert Dou Wangs will be able to kill your brother within a short
amount of time.”
Xiao Yan was slightly startled. He mused for a moment before nodding. He
would naturally not try to be brave since the matter concerned his second
“Where can I go and gather helpers? The Elders within the Inner Academy
need to prepare for the big battle with the ‘Black Alliance’. It is
likely that they wouldn’t be able to lend a hand.” Xiao Yan was
somewhat troubled as he replied.
“Have you forgotten about ‘Pan’s Gate’? Currently, Wu Hao and Hu
Jia are all at the peak of the Dou Ling class and are even experts who
have half a foot in the Dou Wang class. Moreover, other than the two of
them, there are at least ten people within ‘Pan’s Gate’ who are
experts at the peak of the Dou Ling class. This is quite a great
strength. Moreover… there’s still that ‘Brute-Force Queen’.
Additionally, I am also free during this period of time. If we gather all
this strength, it is sufficient to contend with a first tier faction
within the ‘Black-Corner Region’.” Lin Yan laughed.
“It is really unexpected that the small ‘Pan’s Gate’ back then is
already this strong now. Looks like Wu Hao and Hu Jia have managed it
very well.” Xiao Yan was momentarily stunned before he let out an
emotional sigh. Back then, when he was dragged underground by the
‘Fallen Heart Flame’, it seemed that the ‘Pan’s Gate’ did not
even have one peak Dou Ling. Now, it was actually this strong.
“It is not overboard to call this little foundation as the strongest
faction within the Inner Academy. Of course, Xun Er and your influence
enabled ‘Pan’s Gate’ to have its current strength which cannot be
matched by anyone.” Lin Yan smiled and said, “With your reputation
within ‘Pan’s Gate’ it is likely that there would be over a hundred
hot-blooded people who would charge with you into the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ to rescue people with just a wave of your hand. Your existence
is just like a god in their hearts.”
Xiao Yan rubbed his head. He felt somewhat strange that he was able to
possess such a reputation after having been missing from the Inner
Academy for these past two years.
“That’s right. Among those factions that have gone to encircle your
second brother, one of them is your old enemy, the ‘Blood Sect’. That
so-called expert Dou Huang, Fan Lao, from back then.” Lin Yan appeared
to have suddenly recalled something as he spoke.
“Fan Lao?” Xiao Yan was slightly startled. A cold smile slowly
surfaced on the corner of his mouth as he spoke, “It’s just as well.
He was lucky to have escaped back then. Let’s see if he has such good
fortune this time around.”
“Since that’s the case, lead me to ‘Pan’s Gate’ now. This
matter cannot be delayed lest some unexpected changes occur.”
Numerous gazes that were filled with a wild heat and reverence were
staring intently at the smiling black-robed young man in the spacious
hall. Some of the old members of ‘Pan’s Gate’ from back then had
even reached the limit of their excitement.
“Ke ke, everyone. Chief says that he need some helpers. Anyone who
knows they have reached the qualifications and have the courage to follow
us to roam the ‘Black-Corner Region’ can step forward.” Wu Hao
watched the black masses of human heads in the full hall as he spoke with
An orderly sound of footsteps suddenly sounded in the hall. Dozens of
human figures strode forward with excited faces.
Even with Xiao Yan’s mental strength, he could not resist feeling
somewhat moved as he watched the human figures who had stepped out in
unison without even the slightest hesitation. A gratified feeling slowly
climbed out from within his heart.
“Fourteen people at the peak of the Dou Ling class. The remainder are
all expert Dou Lings. How is it? Enough?” Zi Yan glanced at those
people who had stepped forward before turning her head to speak to Xiao
“Yeah, it’s sufficient.” Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He patted Zi
Yan’s head and spoke with a smile, “You still have not grown up after
not having seen you for two years. Ke ke, rest assured that I will help
you refine a true ‘Body Transformation Pill’. At that time you will
be able to transform your body as you please.”
The face of Zi Yan, who was originally unhappy after hearing those
initial words, immediately became joyful upon hearing the remainder of
Xiao Yan’s words. Although the two years did not hinder the growth in
her strength, this young body of hers had caused her some headaches.
“This is much better. You have been missing for two years and also
caused me to eat two years of awful medicinal ingredients. Treat this as
compensation.” The little girl purposefully acted old as she patted
Xiao Yan’s arm. Those gem-like pupils were filled with a smile that was
Xiao Yan smiled, lifted his head and studied the human figures in the
hall, who had faces filled with excitement. He smiled and said, “I,
Xiao Yan, shall not say any unnecessary words. Once we settle everything
and return, I will definitely drink with everyone!”
Everyone in the hall parted their mouths and smiled when they heard Xiao
Yan’s words. Although Xiao Yan had been missing for two years, his
reputation had been brewed with time until it became increasingly mellow.
It even reach the point that as long as they thought that the true leader
of ‘Pan’s Gate’ had appeared, their bodies would be filled with
Xiao Yan’s gaze looked around the hall before suddenly waving his hand
a moment later. He lead the way and strode out of the main entrance. A
large unit followed closely behind him with fanatical expressions.
It was natural that quite a big commotion was created when such a large
group walked within the Inner Academy. Quite a number of people cried out
in surprise when they saw the black-robed young man leading the huge
group. Clearly, they had already recognized the identity of the latter.
Xiao Yan ignored the varying gazes from around him. He and his group
rushed to the exit of the academy. After passing through the dense
forest, they could see that the hidden spacial door had already been
opened. Low griffin roars sounded repeatedly from the outside.
“There are already over ten griffins waiting outside. They will fly all
of you to your destination.” Lin Yan’s figure suddenly flashed and
appeared, while Xiao Yan was feeling somewhat surprised. The former
smiled and spoke to everyone, “These were all prepared for us by the
Xiao Yan was startled. It seemed that Su Qian was also clearly aware
about him gathering helpers. Originally, one was not allowed to use the
people from the Inner Academy to settle a personal matter according to
the rules. However, seeing Su Qian’s meaning, it was obvious that he
not only did not oppose them, but had instead given them help.
“Ke ke, Xiao Yan will definitely thank First Elder for his good
intentions when I return.” Xiao Yan cupped his hands toward the
position of the Inner Academy before immediately waving his hand. He
softly cried out, “Let’s go!”
The large group rushed out in a lightning-like manner the moment his
voice sounded. Finally, they disappeared outside of the large
After Xiao Yan and the others disappeared, the large silver-colored door
fluctuated a little before slowly becoming faint and eventually
Su Qian had his hands behind him in a building deep within the Inner
Academy. His gaze was looking at the exit of the Inner Academy. He softly
spoke a moment later, “They have already left.”
“First Elder, you allowed Xiao Yan to bring the students from the Inner
Academy to the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Isn’t it a little…” An
Elder spoke somewhat hesitantly behind Su Qian.
“Ke ke, relax. Given Xiao Yan’s strength, there should not be any
injuries or deaths. Moreover, it is beneficial to the students to allow
them to experience some true fights to the death.” Su Qian waved his
hand and spoke with a smile.
That Elder could only nod his head while smiling bitterly upon hearing
this. The ‘Black-Corner Region’ was filled with people who would not
blink their eyes even when they killed.
“Inform all the Elders within the Inner Academy. Prepare to gather
three days later. This time around, we must completely annihilate the
‘Black Alliance’!” A stern, cold, glint flashed across Su Qian’s
old eyes as he waved his hand and spoke in a cold voice.
That Elder was also startled when he heard this. He immediately gave a
deep bow of positive acknowledgement before moving his body and quietly
withdrawing from the room.
The interior of the room slowly became quiet. Su Qian’s gaze flickered.
A moment later, he abruptly clenched his fist tightly. His thick cold
voice reverberated unceasingly in the quiet room.
“Let all grudges completely disappear this time around!”
Over ten tiny black dots faintly appeared in the vast sky. A moment later
those black dots gradually became larger and eventually transformed into
over ten enormous griffins which whizzed past.
On top of the leading griffin, Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes and observed
the distant sky. He turned his head toward Wu Hao beside him and asked,
“We have already entered the area of the ‘Black-Corner Region’
