Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-664
A couple of human figures were seated within the spacious Meeting Room
within Feng City. Occasional laughing sounds could be heard as a couple
of graceful female servants shuttled through the hall to serve tea and
water to the various important guests.
“Ke ke, brother Xiao Li. Thanks to the medicinal pill auction idea some
time earlier, the population within the current Feng City is sufficient
to squeeze into the top three of the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Feng City
wasn’t able to achieve such a peak even when the ‘Black Alliance’
was occupying this place back then.” A rough laugh sounded within the
hall. The person who was speaking had bare arms with a tattoo of a fierce
lion roaring toward the sky on his chest. His appearance was surprisingly
the gang leader of the Wild Lion Gang whom others called Wild Lion Tie Wu.
After Tie Wu’s laughter sounded, the leader of the Dark Sky Sect and
Luo Sha Gate who were seated beside him also smiled and nodded. Within a
short three months, the profits that they had obtained were even richer
than what they had obtained during the last half a year. This was all
because they were collaborating with ‘Xiao Gate’.
“Chief Tie is too courteous. All of us are simply getting what we
need.” Xiao Li, who was seated in the leader’s seat smiled and
replied upon hearing this.
Tie Wu and the other two smiled. Their gazes involuntarily turned to the
area behind Xiao Li. There were three men wearing similar colored robes
quietly standing behind him.
The three men appeared to be around thirty years old. Their faces were
filled with a dark brutalness. The three of them looked somewhat similar,
and it was likely that they were related by blood. However, the most
important thing was the aura that was emitted from the bodies of the
three of them. By sensing a little, one could vaguely tell that the three
of them were actually all experts at the Dou Wang class.
“Ke ke, it is really unexpected that brother Xiao Li was able to even
recruit the three Yao brothers, it causes others to be envious. However,
they had offended the Gold-Silver Brothers a few years earlier.
Therefore, there aren’t many factions within the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ who would dare keep them. The current Xiao Gate is the only one
which possesses such a strength.” The shadowy-faced old man from the
Dark Sky Sect, who was called Old Yin Gu, glanced at the three people
behind Xiao Li and spoke with a smile.
Xiao Li smiled, waved his hand and said, “The three Yao brothers
aren’t under my command. They have merely come to ‘Xiao Gate’ as
Tie Wu curled his lips in his heart when he heard Xiao Li’s words.
These three fellows were renowned within the ‘Black-Corner Region’
for being stubborn. If they did not come willingly to join you, would
they quietly stand behind you like pillars given their character?
The so-called three Yao brothers did not even raise their eyebrows
because of the conversation within the hall. That manner was as though
the conversation of Xiao Li and the others had nothing to do with them.

“Ha ha, brother Xiao Li, it seems that we have not seen any traces of
Chief Xiao during these three months? This ‘Black-Corner Region’ is
overly chaotic, and Feng City is currently attracting so much attention.
If Chief Xiao is not around to keep watch, it is unavoidable that some
trouble might occur.” The only female among the leaders of the three
large factions, Chief Su Mei of Luo Sha Gate raised her eyes and randomly
asked with a lovely smile.
Tie Wu and Old Yin Gu by her side also slowly paused their hands when
these words were spoken. Their gazes partially swept toward Xiao Li who
was on the leader’s seat.
With the increasingly frightening population within Feng City, its
profits had also become something that others were more and more envious
of. Without a strength to satisfy others, it was likely that one would be
replaced by another within a short period of time in this ‘Black-Corner
Region’ where one was surrounded by many strong people who possessed
Although the three large factions had also reached an agreement with the
‘Xiao Gate’ under the pressure of Xiao Yan’s and Medusa’s
powerful strength, the lack of appearance of Xiao Yan during these last
three months, and the increasingly rich profits of Feng City inevitably
caused the three large factions, which were not friendly to begin with,
to get some other ideas.
Xiao Li merely smiled faintly in the face of the partially visible gazes
of the three leaders. He carelessly said, “My third brother doesn’t
like to be restrained. He told me that he was going to search for
medicinal ingredients in the deep mountains to refine medicinal pills
some time earlier. It is only natural that he doesn’t have time to show
himself. I can inform the three of you once he is back if you are pining
The three of them smiled when they heard this. Old Yin Gu placed the
teacup in his hand down and smiled and said, “Brother Xiao, although we
have an agreement that we will follow you to the Jia Ma Empire to deal
with your enemy, you should also know that the Misty Cloud Sect possesses
an elite Dou Zong. Hence, we will not dare to go if chief Xiao and that
person do not follow.”
Xiao Li knit his brows. These three cunning fellows were indeed seasoned
people who had muddled along with the ‘Black-Corner Region’ for such
a long time. They were actually leaving a means to escape at such a time
in case of any trouble that might occur in the future.
“Ke ke, why? Do the three of you have any doubts about the agreement
back then? If you have, you can directly mention it to Xiao Yan.” A
faint laugh suddenly sounded from outside just as Xiao Li was prepared to
open his mouth. Immediately, two human figures slowly entered in front of
Xiao Li’s joyous eyes.
Tie Wu and the other two were startled when they saw the black-robed,
young man who had suddenly appeared. They immediately forced a smile on
their faces and stood up before cupping their hands together and spoke
politely, “What is Chief Xiao saying? We will definitely not go back on
our agreement back then. Otherwise, where would we have the face to
continue staying within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ in the future?”
The people who had suddenly appeared were naturally Xiao Yan and Medusa
who had returned from the deep mountains. The former smiled and glanced
at the heaps of smiles on the faces of the three of them. However, his
heart scoffed at their words. How much was the word ‘trust’ worth in
the ‘Black-Corner Region’?
“Ke ke, I think that the three of you have obtained quite the profit
during this period right? Everyone should earn it if there is money. I
never had any objection to this. However, the people who want to part
ways after getting the money… ke ke, Xiao Yan may be young but I am not
a soft person. I think that the three of you should be very clear about
this point.” Xiao Yan glanced at the three people and spoke with a
faint voice. Appropriate beatings were extremely useful toward these
cunning people. The people of the ‘Black-Corner Region’ were cowed by
force, but did not respond to soft persuasion.
As expected, the expressions of the three of them changed a little upon
hearing Xiao Yan’s words, which carried a threat. They immediately
hurriedly nodded their heads to prove his point.
“The three of you need not be anxious. I am merely randomly saying
this.” Xiao Yan spread his hand when he saw the changed expression on
the three faces. He smiled and said, “We might be going to the Jia Ma
Empire within these two months. The three of you should make
preparations. When things succeed, I will definitely deliver all the
‘Huang Class Pill’s’ that I promised you.”
“Within these two months?” Tie Wu and the other three were startled
when they heard this. Was this amount of time not a little too rushed?
Although they muttered a little in their hearts, they did not dare to
utter any objection at this moment. Moreover, under that enormous
temptation of the ‘Huang Class Pill’, the three of them hesitated
only a little before nodding and agreeing.
“Looks like we should quickly settle all the matters within the
sect.” This thought flashed within the three of them simultaneously.
They conversed a little more with Xiao Yan before hurriedly bid him
Xiao Yan sent the three backs off with his eyes before curling his mouth
slightly. He coldly said, “Those three cunning fellows. Did they really
think that it is so easy to take advantage of me?”
“Little fellow, you are finally back. The matters within the Feng City
during this half a year have really agonized me badly.” Xiao Li stepped
down from the leader’s seat and came to Xiao Yan’s front. He patted
the latter’s shoulders as he spoke with a smile.
“How is Feng City now?” Xiao Yan smiled and asked.
“Not bad. Perhaps it is because you have shown yourself and deterred
the Gold Silver Brothers, but there is hardly anyone within this
‘Black-Corner Region’ who dares obstruct us now. Some of the large
shops who possess some capital have also settled into the city one after
another. The population within Feng City is likely to have reached the
top three cities within the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Just think of the
profits. What we have earned in these couple of months is something that
cannot even be matched by two years of work by the mercenary company back
then.” Xiao Li shook his head and sighed emotionally.
Xiao Yan smiled as he saw Xiao Li’s emotional sigh. His gaze suddenly
turned to the three human figures behind Xiao Li and raised his brows
slightly. He could sense that these three people were actually all
experts at the Dou Wang class.
“Who are these three?”
“The three Yao brothers greet chief!” Without waiting for Xiao Li to
call them, the three men who had maintained an indifferent expression
suddenly cupped their hands in an orderly and respectful manner as they
“These three are brothers related by blood. They share the surname Yao.
Although they did not join any factions in the past, three elite Dou
Wangs are also quite powerful. Hence, they do have some reputation within
the ‘Black-Corner Region’. They offended the Gold Silver Brothers a
few years earlier. Therefore they have been hiding within the
‘Black-Corner Region’. I discovered them some time ago, so I called
them over.” Xiao Li explained by his side.
Xiao Yan came to a sudden understanding. He immediately nodded and spoke
to the three of them, “Since you have joined ‘Xiao Gate’, we are
naturally one family. You need not be worried about the Gold Silver
Brothers. Now, it is likely that those two old fellows don’t have the
courage to appear in Feng City.”
Since his relationship with the Gold Silver Brothers was originally
extremely terrible, Xiao Yan would naturally not shut the door on these
three expert Dou Wangs. Naturally, it was best that he had as many
subordinates as possible when he returned to the Jia Ma Empire.
Joy surged onto the faces of the three Yao brothers when they heard Xiao
Yan’s words. They had lived quite miserably during these past few
years. The name of the Gold Silver Brothers was too renowned within the
‘Black-Corner Region’. It was to the point that many factions did not
keep them and dare offend those two old fellows who would not die.
“Chief, I am the oldest among us three brothers. There is no longer a
need to mention my old name. If you have any instructions in the future,
you can call us Big Yao, Second Yao, Third Yao.” The man who looked the
oldest spoke respectfully to Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan also smiled at this simple and interesting form of address. He
immediately nodded, turned his head around and spoke to Xiao Li with a
smile, “Second brother, start gathering everyone… Gather all the
strong people that our ‘Xiao Gate’ can spare. Perhaps we will be
return to the Jia Ma Empire within these two months.”
“Ugh? Alright!” Xiao Li was initially stunned when he heard this. His
face was immediately filled with joy as he nodded rapidly. He had waited
far too long for this!
“Next, I will have to make a trip to the Inner Academy. I shall leave
the matter of gathering helpers to you.” Xiao Yan smiled and said.
“No problem! Leave it to me!”
Xiao Li parted his mouth and smiled. His gaze turned toward the distant
southern sky outside. A savage arc faintly surfaced on his cold, stern
“Misty Cloud Sect, the person seeking revenge is about to come… are
