Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-652
“Business transaction? What kind of business transaction?”
The three leaders who had originally thought that Xiao Yan wanted to turn
against them were stunned when they heard the words that leaped from Xiao
Yan’s mouth. They immediately asked uncertainly.
Xiao Yan smiled and mused for a moment before speaking slowly, “The
profits in Feng City are indeed extremely rich. I can allow your three
factions to occupy a share in Feng City.”
“What does chief Xiao want us to do?” The three leaders looked at
each other before the shadowy-faced old man carefully asked. They did not
believe that a pie would fall from the sky for no reason.
“I have an enemy which is quite strong. Although I already have
confidence to contend with them given my current strength, I still
require some helpers.” Xiao Yan’s gaze locked onto the three of them
and laughed faintly. “I only require you three leaders to lend me a
hand at that time.”
Xiao Li, who was frowning after hearing Xiao Yan’s earlier words from
behind him, also began to relax. The enemy that Xiao Yan had mentioned
was naturally the Misty Cloud Sect. He was clearly aware in his heart
that although Xiao Yan’s strength had soared, he was weak in numbers.
On the other hand, the Misty Cloud Sect had numerous experts, and a
strong foundation. By just relying on their few little scrimps, there was
a helpless feeling of mayflies attempting to shake a large tree.
The intention he had stated earlier was that he wanted to come to the
‘Black-Corner Region’ to expand and strengthen his faction. However,
if he were to rely on this method, it would at least require a year
before they would be able to achieve the strength to contend with the
Misty Cloud Sect. This current method of Xiao Yan to gather the help of
other factions within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ would have the
quickest result. However, they needed to lose some profits. This was
nothing compared to the blood feud created from the destruction of the
“Enemy?” The three leaders were startled when they heard this. Their
expression immediately became a little volatile. Xiao Yan still needed to
gather helpers despite his current strength. Just how strong was his
enemy? Although the profit of Feng City was rich, it would not be
worthwhile if they were to end up being pulled into a firepit.
“May I know which faction on the continent is the enemy that chief Xiao
mentions?” The sexily clad pretty woman finally could not resist
opening her mouth to ask a moment later.
Xiao Yan laughed softly. A dense coldness faintly flickered through his
dark-black eyes, “Although that faction has been hiding in one corner
like a tortoise all these years, I think that everyone should have heard
“Jia Ma Empire’s, Misty Cloud Sect!”
A faint, cold voice was slowly spat out of Xiao Yan’s mouth before
resounding within the large hall.
“The Misty Cloud Sect?” The three leaders softly muttered this
somewhat familiar name in their mouths. Their expression changed a little
a moment later. They exchanged glances with one another before that
shadow-faced old man voiced his thoughts, “I seem to have heard some
news about this faction. If the news I have obtained is correct, the
Misty Cloud Sect has an elite Dou Zong!”
“Aye, I have also obtained some news earlier that an elite Dou Zong had
appeared within the Jia Ma Empire. His name… seemed to be called Yun
Shan?” The sexily clad pretty woman also recalled a little as she spoke
with a solemn expression.
Xiao Yan did not feel surprised that the three leaders had heard of the
Misty Cloud Sect. Although the ‘Black-Corner Region’ was tens of
thousands of kilometers from the Jia Ma Empire, it would not hinder some
of the very important news from spreading. Dou Zong. An expert of this
class could be considered a top notch expert even when placed in the
entire Dou Qi continent. Hence, the news began to spread like wildfire
once it was spread from the Jia Ma Empire.
The leaders of the three large factions looked at one another. A moment
later, they shook their heads in a somewhat embarrassed manner. The
shadowy-faced old man smiled awkwardly to Xiao Yan and said, “Chief
Xiao, you cannot blame us for this decision. The ‘Black-Corner
Region’ is thousands of kilometers from the Misty Cloud Sect. Even with
our speed, it would likely require at least two to three months to make a
trip there and back. Moreover… the Misty Cloud Sect’s strength is
indeed strong. It can be considered to be somewhat renowned even in the
entire north-western region of the continent. I think that it won’t be
easy to take revenge even with our help.”
The strength of the Misty Cloud Sect could be considered to be near that
of a first-tier faction even in the entire north-western part of the
continent. If these first-tier factions from the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ were to be placed on the entire continent, it was obvious that
they would be ranked a little lower. If one wanted to find one single
faction within the entire ‘Black-Corner Region’, it was likely that
none of them would be able to surpass the Misty Cloud Sect. The earlier
‘Black Alliance’ might perhaps be able to stand shoulder to shoulder
with the Misty Cloud Sect, but it was an alliance and not a single
Of course, if Xiao Yan were able to gather the factions within the entire
‘Black-Corner Region’, he would naturally be able to far surpass the
Misty Cloud Sect. However, it was basically impossible to unite everyone
in this chaotic place.
“Ke ke, you three leaders must be afraid that Xiao Yan is unable to
deal with the Misty Cloud Sect, and will end up dragging all of you into
a mess, right?” Xiao Yan was not infuriated by the reaction of these
people. He merely laughed softly.

The three of them gave an embarrassed smile but did not try to defend
“Other than Yun Shan, the Misty Cloud Sect will not have more than
three elite Dou Huangs in total. The remainder are mostly some Elders at
the Dou Wang or Dou Ling class, and there is nothing to fear from them.
The lower level disciples pose no threat at all.” Xiao Yan laughed in a
faint voice, “We also possess an elite Dou Zong. As for Dou Huangs, is
there anyone who is stronger than Han Feng? Hence, we only need to find
some helpers who are qualified to help us resist the large forces of the
Misty Cloud Sect. This is not difficult for the three of you.”
The eyes of the three leaders flickered, but they still remained quiet.
“They are indeed a group of people who will do nothing without seeing
the reward…” Xiao Yan’s brows were knit slightly when he saw the
united silence of these three people. He immediately shook his head
helplessly and said, “The ambition of the ‘Xiao Gate’ does not stop
at Feng City. We will definitely continue to spread throughout the
‘Black-Corner Region’ in the future. Given our strength, the profits
that we will obtain in the future are countless times greater than now.
If the three of you are willing to help me, I will not forget all of you
when it comes to this big cake in the future…”
A boiling heat surged within the hearts of these three leaders when they
heard Xiao Yan’s words. Currently, the ‘Xiao Gate’ possessed Xiao
Yan and the mysterious Dou Zong behind him. Its strength had already
exceeded that of the ‘Black Alliance’ back then. It was likely that
there was no faction within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ who could
contend with them. Hence, these words of Xiao Yan had undoubtedly held
great attraction to them. However… that damn Misty Cloud Sect, was not
some ordinary being.
Xiao Yan smiled once again as he saw the changing expression of the three
people. His voice faintly unleashed the final potent medicine, “You all
should have heard of the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’, no?”
The three leaders immediately raised their heads when the calm voice
sounded. Their gazes stared firmly at Xiao Yan and their eyes were filled
with a wild joy.
The ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ was a medicinal pill which was known to be at
the peak of the tier 6 medicinal pills. Its effect was very simple. Using
it would allow an elite Dou Huang to raise his strength one or two stars
within a short period of time. Moreover, the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ has
another use: it could refine one’s bones.
The remnant medicinal strength after the increase in one’s strength
would help strengthen the body of the person who had consumed it.
Although this kind of strengthening could not be compared with the kind
of frightening strengthening that Xiao Yan had experienced underground,
it would still be able to increase one’s fighting ability significantly.
Simply speaking, the effect of the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’, and the
‘Dou Spirit Pill’ was similar. However, the ‘Dou Spirit Pill’ was
only useful to a Dou Wang, while the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ had great
use to an elite Dou Huang. Moreover, it had the additional effect of
strengthening one’s bones.
Even without this effect, it would still be one of the medicinal pills
that was most sought after by an elite Dou Huang. The allure of raising
one’s strength by one or two stars was too attractive to them. It
should be known that when one reached the level of a Dou Huang, it was
not an uncommon thing for some of the unlucky ones to have difficulty
raising their strength by one level even after a couple of years.
A medicinal pill that could raise one’s strength would always possess
the greatest allure!
Hence, the three leaders did not hide the desire within their hearts.
This kind of medicinal pill was not something that they had never thought
about. However, it was likely that Han Feng alone possessed ability to
refine it within the entire ‘Black-Corner Region’. However, they
never had a good relationship with Han Feng. Hence, it was naturally
impossible for him to spend the effort to refine this kind of medicinal
pill for them. It was this reason that their hearts were all lifted when
Xiao Yan mentioned this name.
“Chief Xiao is able to refine the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’?” The wild
joy within the eyes of the three of them slowly began to withdraw a
moment later. The bare-armed Wild Lion Gang leader was the first to
The other two people hurriedly threw their gaze to Xiao Yan when they
heard these words. A ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ was a peak tier 6 medicinal
pill. Back then, even Han Feng’s chances of success when refining it
were not very high, much less this very young Xiao Yan.
“I would not be mentioning this in front of the three of you if I
didn’t know how to refine it.” Xiao Yan smiled. He flicked his finger
and a wisp of jade-green flame suddenly surfaced. The temperature of the
entire hall immediately soared following the appearance of the flame.
Even the air had become exceptionally dry.
“This is… ‘Heavenly Flame’?”
The eyes of the three of them shrank as they looked at the wisp of
jade-green flame. Their feet involuntarily took a couple of steps back.
Being elite Dou Huangs, they were clearly aware of just what kind of
frightening strength a ‘Heavenly Flame’ possessed. Despite their
strength, it would be extremely troublesome if they were to touch even a
little bit of this thing.
“It is only natural for me to have my capital in order to kill Han
Feng.” Xiao Yan looked at the three people as he spoke with a faint
smile. His long finger danced agilely as that wisp of dark-green flame
obediently lingered and danced around his finger.
“Since I am able to kill him, it is only natural that I have surpassed
him. Why can’t I refine the things that he can?”
“If the three of you agree with my condition, I will definitely hand
over the ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ once the matter is successfully settled.
Moreover, all of you will be able to enjoy a profit in the
‘Black-Corner Region’ that would cause others to envy you. What do
you say?” Xiao Yan’s soft laughter landed in the ears of the three of
them, causing their breathing to slowly become rough and heavy.
Their faces turned a little flush as their eyes flicked about in a
volatile manner. Their hearts had also descended into a great conflict.
Xiao Yan ceased saying anything in the face of the conflict of these
three people. He narrowed his eyes and waited for the final reply of
these three people. The temperature of the wisp of dark-green flame on
his finger also quietly rose with his mood while he waited…
The three leaders finally recovered from their struggle when the
temperature of the hall rose to a certain degree. They looked at one
another before they eventually grit their teeth and nodded violently.
They would go all out and seek wealth even amid danger!
“Alright, we will do as you say!”
