Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-647
“You want to establish a faction within the ‘Black-Corner
Region’?” Su Qian immediately knit his brows when he heard Xiao
Yan’s words in the Elder’s Meeting Room.
“First Elder, I am also aware that the ‘Black-Corner Region’ has
been a thorn to the Jia Nan Academy. However, due to the environment,
that place will always possess an extremely strong offensive capability.
As the saying goes, it is better to scatter than to stop. If you want to
end this trouble, it is only natural that you cannot do it by the most
forceful method. Should second brother really manage to expand his
faction in the ‘Black-Corner Region’, it would end up helping the
Inner Academy by saving a lot of trouble. Moreover, we can also help
monitor some of the factions which possess enmity toward the Inner
Academy.” Su Qian’s reaction was not beyond Xiao Yan’s
expectations. The latter simply smiled and explained.
The frown on Su Qian’s brow relaxed a little. He was no fool. With his
experience, he was naturally able to figure out whether things would be
beneficial for him or not.
“Moreover, First Elder should also be aware of a little of my
background. I have a deep enmity with the Misty Cloud Sect. In order to
take revenge, I will require quite a strong faction. The ‘Black-Corner
Region’ is not a bad place.” Xiao Yan smiled faintly as he spoke,
“Therefore, even if the faction were to expand in the future, it is
likely that it would not be much of a threat to the Inner Academy. If
First Elder does not trust my second brother on this point, you should at
least be able to trust me, right?”
Su Qian’s finger knocked against the surface of the table. He finally
nodded a long while later as he said, “What you say is not without
reason. The ‘Black-Corner Region’ has always been a big worry for the
Jia Nan Academy. If a faction which is friendly to the Inner Academy were
to appear, it would indeed possess an effect that is difficult to
“In other words, First Elder agrees to it?” Xiao Yan was slightly
happy as he replied with a smile.
“Ugh, what else can I do other than agree? At this moment, the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ of the Inner Academy requires you to
replenish the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ in the long term.” Su Qian
helplessly shook his head as replied
“First Elder, these words of yours are spoken like… Xiao Yan is not
an ungrateful person. I owe the Inner Academy a favor by obtaining the
‘Fallen Heart Flame’. Won’t I be completely shameful if I used this
to threaten you?” Xiao Yan spoke seriously.
“Ke ke, you are not bad when it comes to this point. You view
friendship quite seriously. This old me likes it.” Su Qian fondled his
beard and nodded his head, feeling pleased. He had always favored and
valued Xiao Yan. This was not only because of his strength and his
talent, but also his character.
“Alright, let your second brother feel at ease and do it. The
‘Black-Corner Region’ is far too chaotic and straightening it out a
little also does have some benefit to our Jia Nan Academy.” Su Qian
waved his hand and spoke with a smile.
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded.
“Are your injuries alright?” Su Qian changed the topic. He smiled and
asked Xiao Yan a question when he noticed that the discussion had come to
“Aye, I’m fine.”
“Little fellow, your constitution is really a source of envy. You can
lively jump around after only recuperating for a couple of days despite
suffering such serious injuries.” Su Qian smacked his mouth and
revealed a face filled with envy. This kind of nearly unbeatable kind of
constitution was indeed something that others coveted after.
Xiao Yan smiled. His constitution was this strong because it had been
forged from a countless number of sufferings. This world did not give
free lunches. One could forget about any reward without any effort.
“What do you plan to do next? Don’t tell me that you want to go to
the ‘Black-Corner Region’ to help your second brother?” Su Qian’s
finger tapped gently on the table as he asked.
“He is able to handle the matter of the ‘Black-Corner Region’
himself and will send someone to inform me if he really need me to
intervene.” Xiao Yan shook his head and mused, “I will still remain
in the academy for a period of time until I settle the problem regarding
Of course, there was one other matter. That was to quietly practice the
‘Open Mountain Seal’ of the ‘God Seal Technique’ that Xun Er had
left behind. A Di class High level Dou Technique. A Dou Techniqueof this
class would likely have an extremely powerful strength. If he were to
successfully practice it, it would undoubtedly become another trump card
of Xiao Yan. It would also increase his chances of victory in the future
battle with Yun Shan. However, he needed to keep this a secret.
Therefore, it was only natural that Xiao Yan did not mention it.
“Her? Are you talking about that Dou Zong class woman?” Su Qian
raised his brows and immediately asked somewhat curiously, “Just where
exactly did this woman come from? Why have I never heard of such an
expert around this place?”
Xiao Yan hesitated a little upon hearing this. When he thought that this
was not considered a secret, he shrugged his shoulders and gave a brief
explanation of Queen Medusa’s origin.
“Tsk tsk, how unexpected. She is actually the legendary Queen Medusa.
Moreover, she is a Medusa after evolution. No wonder…” Su Qian’s
face was filled with surprise as he smacked his mouth. He immediately
spoke teasingly toward Xiao Yan, “But, little fellow, you are quite
strong. You even dared to provoke this kind of woman. I heard that
successive Queen Medusas were all extremely cold-blooded people who
killed humans like killing chickens. It is unexpected that she had
intervened to rescue you. That is really unbelievable… back then, an
evolved Queen Medusa had appeared on the continent in the past.
Coincidentally, she was molested by a young master from a top-tiered
faction. In the end, that woman charged into the faction and went on a
massacre, decimating that faction. From then on, the men on the continent
took a detour whenever they saw Queen Medusa. They are all afraid that
they might end up leading their faction to destruction if they were
careless. Hee hee, do you know just how lucky you are now?”
Xiao Yan rubbed the cold sweat off his forehead. The previous Queen
Medusas were indeed frightening. There was no need for any reason to kill
someone. Hopefully, this current Queen Medusa could be a little more
“I will be more careful. Thank you First Elder for your reminder.”
Xiao Yan smiled bitterly as he cupped his hands toward Su Qian. After
which, he walked out of the Meeting Room in front of the brewing smile in
the latter’s eyes.
Su Qian watched Xiao Yan’s disappearing back. Only then did he
teasingly mutter with a smile, “However, this fellow does not appear to
know that despite having such an intense killing nature, Medusa truly
loves someone until the end once she has been subdued by him. This
fellow… tsk tsk, his luck with women is indeed quite great…”
Xiao Yan once again hurried back to ‘Pan’s Gate’ after leaving the
Meeting Room. He informed Xiao Li of the good news. The latter was also
quite happy upon hearing that the Inner Academy did not oppose the plan.
He immediately reminded Xiao Yan about some things before he hurriedly
left the Inner Academy and headed for the Jia Nan City to summon his
subordinates. After which, they headed into the ‘Black-Corner Region’
to take the opportunity to expand their faction.
Xiao Yan was helpless in the face of the impatient Xiao Li. He could only
allow the latter to leave. However, Xiao Yan had repeatedly reminded Xiao
Li that he should send someone to contact him as soon as possible if
there was any trouble. Currently, Han Feng from the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ was dead, and the Gold Silver Brothers did not dare to stand
out. Given Xiao Yan’s strength, it was already sufficient to sweep
aside all those people on the so-called ‘Black Ranking’.
Xiao Yan’s life became quiet after Xiao Li left the Inner Academy. He
stayed within ‘Pan’s Gate’ for another two days before he was
finally unable to resist his curiosity for the ‘God Seal Skill’. Once
again, he found an excuse to enter the vast deep mountains.
The deep mountains were vast and unending. The lush green color continued
to extend all the way to the end of one’s sight. A wild wind blew over
and the entire mountain range emitted a ‘hua hua’ sound.
Xiao Yan was seated cross-legged on a huge rock on a somewhat empty
mountain peak. However, he did not immediately begin to practice the
‘God Seal Technique’. Instead, he raised his head and looked at the
empty sky. A moment later, he helplessly opened his mouth and said,
“Show yourself. I know you have been following me.”
Xiao Yan’s voice had just sounded when a spot in the sky began to
fluctuate slightly. A well-proportioned, graceful, beautiful figure
appeared out of nowhere. An ice-cold bright gaze shot toward Xiao Yan’s
“Are you seeking death?” Medusa stepped gently in the empty sky just
like a fairy who was riding the waves. However, the killing intent on
this fairy was a little too dense. In the blink of an eye, she appeared
in front of Xiao Yan and spoke coldly.
“Don’t tell me ‘die’ all day long. I am also aware that you are
unable to kill me now.” Xiao Yan waved his hand and laughed bitterly.
“What did you say?” Queen Medusa’s eyebrows were vertical when she
heard these words of Xiao Yan. Her long eyes were filled with a dense,
cold killing intent.
“You should clearly be aware of what I said. Although you have merged
with the spirit of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’, you were also
influenced by it. Therefore, you have been unable to hurt me, and even
frequently follow beside me.” Xiao Yan sighed as he studied Queen
Medusa whose face became uglier following his words.
“Don’t think that the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ can influence me
forever. I will be able to kill you sooner or later!” Queen Medusa’s
voice was like glacier. It was void of any excess emotion.

“We can perform a transaction. What do you say?” Xiao Yan rubbed his
somewhat painful head and helplessly spoke.
Queen Medusa did not have the slightest reaction to Xiao Yan’s
suggestion. These past few years, it was due to these various
transactions that she finally ended up being entangled with this fellow.
“I can help you completely remove the influence of the ‘Heaven
Swallowing Python’ and allow you to become a true Queen Medusa.”
Despite having already decided in her heart that she would ignore any
sweet words of Xiao Yan, Queen Medusa’s heart still pounded intensely
when she heard the latter say this.
“Why should I trust you?” Queen Medusa’s long pretty eyes narrowed
into a lazy arc as she coldly smiled.
Xiao Yan waved his hand and a shadow shot from his sleeves. Finally, it
was thrust into Queen Medusa’s hand. She took a closer look, only to
discover it was a scroll. A couple of ancient words were imprinted into
her eyes when she slowly opened it. This was a medicinal formula. The
medicinal pill that it could refine would coincidentally treat the
condition of being influenced by another spirit, something that Queen
Medusa was facing.
“This is a tier six medicinal pill, ‘Soul Recovery Pill’. The
medicinal ingredients and other things needed to refine the medicinal
pill are not on this scroll. If you agree to my terms, I will help you
refine it in the future. What do you say?” Xiao Yan spoke indifferently.
Medusa’s expression was volatile as she folded the scroll. Her voice
was still icy-cold as she inquired, “What’s your request?”
“You will follow beside me for one year. You are not allowed to have
any killing intent toward me. If I ask you to intervene when necessary,
you are not allowed to reject me.” Xiao Yan smiled and continued,
“Once one year is over, I will help you refine the medicinal pill. At
that time, you can do as you wish if you still want to kill me? What do
Queen Medusa’s eyes flickered. Her heart descended into a conflicting
“Ke ke, as long as you obtain the ‘Soul Recovery Pill’, you will be
a pure Queen Medusa in the future. You will not be influenced by
anything. This kind of freedom has a hefty price tag.” Xiao Yan’s
laughter reverberated beside Queen Medusa’s ear. It was filled with
Medusa’s delicate hand suddenly tightened. Her icy-cold gaze stared at
Xiao Yan as her clear, cold voice caused a joyous arc to be lifted on the
corner of the latter’s mouth.
“Alright, I will do as you say!”
