Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-643
“He is indeed worthy of being the Alliance Head of the ‘Black
Alliance’ by actually carrying such a high grade storage ring.”
Xiao Yan lifted the corner of his mouth and unceremoniously took that
deep-blue storage ring from Han Feng’s finger. Storage rings were
divided into high and low grades. A high grade storage ring was extremely
rare. It was an object in great demand that no supplier, even the auction
houses of the ‘Black-Corner Region,’ could fill. Even Xiao Yan had
never worn a high grade storage ring in all these years. He could only
improvise, and barely manage by using a low grade storage ring.
In the past, Xiao Yan did not have a very great requirement for storage
rings. However, he had begun to pay more attention to this ever since
that storage ring cracked apart in a baffling manner during his training.
He had always stored some precious objects within his storage ring. The
last time around, he was fortunate to have the isolation of the ‘Fallen
Heart Flame,’ which had prevented him from losing his precious objects.
However, it was difficult to be certain of such good luck. Hence, it
would indeed reassure him if he were able to possess a high grade storage
ring. After all, a high grade storage ring was much greater than a low
grade storage ring whether it was in terms of firmness or safety.
Xiao Yan played with the deep-blue storage ring in his hand. He tried
probing into it with his Spiritual Strength, but was surprised to realize
that his Spiritual Strength was repelled by the storage ring.
“It is indeed worthy of being a high grade storage ring to actually
possess such a protection.” Xiao Yan parted his mouth and smiled. He
vaguely understood that a high grade storage ring would allow the owner
to place a spiritual imprint on it. In this way, if anyone luckily
obtained the storage ring and wanted to take out the things within, one
had to remove that spiritual imprint first. The owner of the storage ring
would sense it if he attempted to do so. Such an automatic defensive
ability was something that only a high grade storage ring possess. It was
also one of the greatest reasons for its price to soar greatly.
From a certain point of view, Han Feng was currently dead. Hence, Xiao
Yan naturally need not be worried of him sensing anything. A fierce
Spiritual Strength instantly surged out and used the most brutal method
to remove the spiritual imprint that Han Feng had left behind. After
which, he immediately placed his own imprint onto it. In this way, the
high grade storage ring had officially changed owners!
Xiao Yan was satisfied as he placed the deep-blue storage ring on his
finger. His mind moved and his Spiritual Strength entered the storage
ring without any hindrances…
The probing merely lasted for a moment before Xiao Yan slowly withdrew
his mind from the storage ring. At this moment, his eyes contained a joy
that was difficult to hide. The things that Han Feng had collected within
the ‘Black-Corner Region’ were really difficult to count. There were
quite a number of various rare medicinal ingredients present within the
storage ring. Moreover, there were also various scrolls containing Qi
Methods and Dou Techniques randomly placed inside it. Clearly these were
items given by various people who had begged him to refine a pill.
Although he had merely took a hurried glance, the rich collection within
the storage ring caused Xiao Yan to feel extremely excited. He might not
have ultimately obtained the most important ‘Sea Heart Flame’ when he
killed Han Feng this time around, but he had obtained all of Han Feng’s
fortune. The treasures stored within this deep-blue high grade storage
ring were sufficient enough to cause any expert within the
‘Black-Corner Region’ to become crazy.
Queen Medusa’s gaze was still icy-cold as she looked at Xiao Yan who
was laughing away while hugging the storage ring. She knit her eyebrows
slightly, and she sighed in anguish within her heart. If she had stood
idly by the side today, Xiao Yan would have had difficulty escaping
death. In that case, she would have gotten revenge for her hatred toward
him because of the profane act he had committed against her. However, her
indifferent heart had suddenly beat wildly in the nick of time. A faint
pull from deep within her spirit caused her to ultimately intervene…
“Dammit. This Queen will kill you personally sooner or later!”
Medusa clenched her silver teeth with hatred. She clearly understood in
her heart that given her old character, it was likely that she would add
fuel to the fire by shifting the position of the attacking chain such
that it was more fatal. There was no need to even mention helping Xiao
Yan. However, these various hesitations that she currently felt was due
to the merger of the two spirits. Although she had obtained absolute
control of the body, the spirit of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ was
also secretly affecting her. The ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ had
followed beside Xiao Yan for one or two years and was already quite
attached to him. Such attachment had more or less caused some minor
changes in Queen Medusa during the merger of spirits.
According to a normal situation, Queen Medusa should have left and
returned to the Snake-People Race in the Vast Tager Desert now that she
had merged with the spirit of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ and
recovered her strength. Now, however, she continued to be around Xiao
Yan. Such a situation was due to the influence of the attachment of the
‘Heaven Swallowing Python’.
Xiao Yan had also sensed something when Medusa’s icy gaze was staring
at him. He raised his head and gave an embarrassed smile. His feet took a
couple of steps back without leaving any trace. Although he did not
understand why this person who desperately wanted to kill him would
actually rescue him, he still felt a great fear for this Queen Medusa,
who killed without blinking. This was especially so given that he was
currently in his weakest condition where he did not even possess the
strength to flee.
“*Cough*, that… Your Majesty, thank you very much for rescuing me
this time around. Xiao Yan will remember this favor. I will definitely
return it in the future if I have the chance to!” Xiao Yan smiled
awkwardly in the face of the cold and emotionless Queen Medusa.
Queen Medusa totally ignored Xiao Yan’s embarrassed smile. Her gaze was
indifferent as she stared at Xiao Yan. She gently tightened her delicate
hand, and a colorful seven-colored energy slowly surged.
Perspiration immediately filled Xiao Yan’s forehead upon seeing the
actions of Queen Medusa. This woman was indeed temperamental. She had
just rescued him, but she was now actually planning to attack him.
A rushing wind sound suddenly appeared in the sky just as Queen Medusa
took a step forward. Su Qian’s elderly figure appeared in front of Xiao
Yan. His gaze was cautiously looking at Queen Medusa. Cupping his hands
together, he said, “Expert, may I know who you are? Can you reveal your
name. You might well be an old acquaintance of our Jia Nan Academy.”’
Xiao Yan immediately sighed in relief when Su Qian appeared. He carefully
shifted his body behind him and softly said, “First Elder. Be careful.
This woman changes her face faster than one flips a book.”
The corner of Su Qian’s mouth twitched involuntarily when he heard Xiao
Yan’s reminder. He really did not know how this fellow had provoked
this person, causing her to chase after him bitterly. Moreover, the thing
that caused Su Qian to be most dispirited was that this fellow had to go
and provoke an expert of such level. If he were to fight with the woman
in front of him, even Su Qian did not have more than a fifty-percent
chance of victory. This could be seen from the way the other party had
shaken and forced back someone from the ‘Hall of Souls’ with just a
Queen Medusa halted her footsteps after Su Qian appeared. She ignored his
words as her gaze coldly looked at Xiao Yan. Her tone was icy cold,
“You can only repay those things that you did to me with your life.
This is the last time! I will definitely not show any mercy the next time
Queen Medusa ignored the strange expression of Su Qian as she turned
around and turned into a seven-colored flowing light that shot into the
sky after speaking those words. After which, she swiftly disappeared.
Xiao Yan only wiped off the perspiration on his forehead when he saw
Queen Medusa leave. He bitterly shook his head. Provoking such a woman
really gave him a massive headache. It looked like he really needed to
find some time to converse properly with her. Otherwise, just when would
this endless chase end?
“You little fellow… you are really too bold. However, I am really
curious. How did you manage to do those things to her given her
strength?” Su Qian turned around and looked at Xiao Yan with strange
eyes. He shook his head while clicking his tongue. With his great
experience, he was able to detect something from those words of Queen
These words of Su Qian provoked Xiao Yan and got him to let out a few
forceful coughs. He shook his head in embarrassment. He did not seem to
have any other choice but to act confused at such a moment. It was not
honorable to speak about forcefully taking a woman. Although this woman
could not be viewed with ordinary eyes…
“Ugh, forget it. In any case, you should be more careful. This
woman’s strength is really too frightening. Even I don’t have much
chance of beating her.” Su Qian was helpless when he saw that Xiao Yan
was unwilling to say anything. He ended up patting Xiao Yan’s shoulders
and said those words.
Xiao Yan smiled bitterly and nodded.
“Huh? Isn’t this the ‘Serene Sea Storage Ring’? You are really
unceremonious. Back then, Han Feng had went through a great battle in
order to obtain this storage ring. It is unexpected that you are now
currently benefiting from it.” Su Qian’s gaze glanced at the
dark-blue storage ring on Xiao Yan’s finger, and he immediately let out
a surprised cry. His voice carried some envy within it.
Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders and laughed, “It is but my victory
“The credit for defeating Han Feng is basically completely yours.
Although that woman added the final kick, no one is going to fight with
you for this thing.” Su Qian smiled. He immediately turned his gaze
toward the wall of Feng City not far away which was packed with people.
He said, “Han Feng is currently dead. I’m afraid that the ‘Black
Alliance’ will automatically dissolve not long later. That thorn in my
heart can finally disappear.”
Xiao Yan nodded slightly as he spoke somewhat regretfully,
“Unfortunately, I did not obtain the ‘Sea Heart Flame’. That flame
had already been refined by Han Feng. Therefore, the ‘Sea Heart
Flame’ was taken away when that fellow dragged away Han Feng’s spirit
“It is already not bad that there is the ‘Serene Sea Storage Ring’
as compensation.” Su Qian shook his head. He slowly withdrew the smile
on his face and said, “However, the most important thing now is that
‘Hall of Souls’ already have their eyes on you. That mysterious
organization is not something that an ordinary faction can compare
with.” Su Qian’s face involuntarily revealed a worry when he spoke up
to this point. Clearly, he was also extremely afraid of the mysterious
‘Hall of Souls’.
Xiao Yan smiled and spoke calmly, “Even if they don’t come looking
for me, I will end up looking for them sooner or later. This is something
that I cannot escape from…”
Su Qian was startled. He studied Xiao Yan’s faint smiling face and
nodded quietly. However, he did not pursue the matter until the end. All
he did was pat Xiao Yan’s shoulders and sigh, “You should recuperate
first. Take advantage of the time before that organization comes looking
for you to raise your strength a little. In the future, you will know
just how frightening they are…”
Su Qian turned around and slowly walked toward the exterior of the plains
after saying this.
Xiao Yan watched Su Qian gradually disappearing figure and smiled. A day
where he collided head on with the ‘Hall of Souls’ was something that
was long within his expectations. However, the thing that caused him to
rejoice was that the current him already possessed the strength to
protect himself and Yao Lao. If he was at his peak condition today, he
believed that he would be able to force back that cluster of strange
black fog. The current him possessed such strength!
