Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-676
Yun Fan inhaled a deep breath of air as he watched the black-robed, young
man who was walking over with a smile that was increasingly icy-cold. He
held the dark-blue longsword tightly in his hand and the Dou Qi within
his body churned unceasingly, appearing like floodwater. The shock in his
heart had been greatly reduced as his eyes stared intently at Xiao Yan. A
thought, however, had rose in his heart.
“This brat will definitely look for the Misty Cloud Sect to take
revenge now that he has returned to the Jia Ma Empire. Looks like I must
send this information to the sect. Otherwise, we might be caught off
guard in the future.”
Yun Fan’s eyes flickered. He turned his head toward the similarly
pale-faced Meng Li and said in a soft and quick manner, “I will delay
him. Take the opportunity to leave. After which inform the sect leader of
Xiao Yan’s return!” He did not wait for Meng Li’s response after
his words sounded. His shoulders shook and a pair of pale-blue Dou Qi
wings surged out. His feet gently pressed on the ground and his body
turned into a vague shadow. It was mixed with sharp blade wind as he shot
toward Xiao Yan.
Mu Tie’s heart tightened when he saw Yun Fan suddenly attack and
hurriedly cried out a reminder. However, he had just recovered after his
reminder had sounded. The young man who was currently in front of him was
no longer the young man who was chased like a dog that had lost its home
Xiao Yan turned his head and smiled to Mu Tie. A cluster of jade-green
flames suddenly appeared on his hand. He lifted his eyes slightly and saw
the man and sword which were swiftly magnified in his eyes. The corner of
his mouth moved. A faint silver colored glow flashed and appeared under
The deep-blue longsword carried a sharp sword aura as it tore through the
air. It carried a dark, cold wind as it shot toward Xiao Yan’s chest.
When everyone’s gaze were focused on him, Yun Fan suddenly cried out
Meng Li, who was already ready by the side, stomped his feet violently on
the ground. His body was like a cannonball as he rushed out of the city
governor’s mansion in a lightning-like manner.
“You want to go?” Xiao Yan coldly smiled as he heard the rushing wind
sound that appeared when Meng Li fled. His left hand was extended before
it was abruptly clenched. A powerful suction force immediately erupted
from his palm.
A wild wind immediately surfaced from the powerful suction force. Even
the enormous rocks in the yard began to tremble violently. Some of the
tree trunks were broken. The body of Meng Li, who was fleeing, suddenly
paused in mid-air. His body swiftly pulled back. All his struggle was to
The longsword in Yun Fan’s hand suddenly escaped from his hand just as
Xiao Yan sucked Meng Li over. It transformed into a deep-blue cold glit
that pierced violently toward Xiao Yan’s chest, which was in close
proximity. When the sword left his hand, the pair of wings on Yun Fan’s
back flapped swiftly and he rushed to the sky in the blink of an eye
before turning his body around to flee.
“Bait huh…” Xiao Yan raised his brows in surprise when Yun Fan
suddenly abandoned his attack, turned around, and fled. This old fellow
was indeed a treacherous person. Earlier, he had only asked Meng Li to
flee first so that he could use the latter to quietly get away.
Lin Yan, Zi Yan, and the others who was coincidentally leisurely by the
side were just about to move after seeing Yun Fan flee when Xiao Yan’s
laughter stopped them, “Allow me.”
After Xiao Yan’s laughter sounded, Meng Li, who was originally flying
toward him under the influence of the suction force, suddenly paused in
mid-air. An instant later, a powerful pushing force once again surged out
from Xiao Yan’s palm. Finally, it smashed firmly on the back of Meng
Li. The latter’s expression suddenly became pale after being assaulted
by these two forces. A mouthful of bright-red fresh blood was immediately
Xiao Yan waved his hand and the sky rippled. An invisible force randomly
swung Meng Li into the wall. Finally, he landed heavily on the ground
with an unknown fate.
Meng Li’s body had just landed on the ground when Xiao Yan’s body,
which was in the yard, strangely disappeared. The eyeballs of Mu Tie and
the others nearly popped out when they saw his ghost-like figure. Was
this speed not a little too frightening.
The faint rumble of thunder reverberated in the yard as Xiao Yan’s body
disappeared. A moment later, the sharp sound of rushing wind suddenly
appeared in the sky just as Mu Tie and the others were looking at each
other. A human body immediately fell from the sky in a miserable manner.
Finally, it violently smashed into the ground and dust immediately spread
all over the place.
“A mere three star Dou Wang. If I were to allow you to flee in front of
me, how would I be able to talk about ending the grudge with Yun Shan?”
A soft laugh sounded in the sky. Everyone raised their heads and saw the
young man who was carrying a heavy ruler flapping his jade-green fire
wings as he slowly floated in the air. His gaze was indifferent as he
looked at the human figure that had fallen to the ground.
The dust gradually scattered in the yard. Yun Fan’s figure was slowly
revealed. However, at this moment, this Misty Cloud Sect’s Elder, who
was usually aloof, displayed a pale face at this moment. There was still
remnant traces of blood on the corner of his mouth. Both of his eyes
carried a fear and disbelief as he looked at the black-robed, young man
in the sky. The two of them had not even exchanged more than three blows
earlier when he descended into a seriously injured state. The other
party’s strength was actually this terrifying.
“Xiao Yan, if you kill me, sect leader Yun Shan will definitely not let
you off! The last time, you were able to luckily escape with your life.
I’m afraid that you will not have such good luck this time around!”
Yun Fan glanced at Meng Li, whose fate was unknown, by the corner of the
wall. His eyelids twitched as he spoke with a brave exterior.
Xiao Yan lifted the corner of his mouth into a ridiculing smile. He shook
his head and was too lazy to say any unnecessary words. A cluster of
green flame surfaced from his palm with a flick of his finger. The
temperature of the surroundings instantly became hot with the appearance
of this cluster of flame.
“The Misty Cloud Sect has destroyed my Xiao clan. This vengeance is
something that I will get them to pay many times back. In the future, I
will kill every single member of the Misty Cloud Sect. It will sooner or
later be the turn of old dog Yun Shan.” Xiao Yan laughed faintly. His
gaze looked at the cluster of dark-green flame in his hand and
immediately shook his head. With a flick of his finger, the cluster of
flame left his hand and immediately shot accurately toward the frightened
The jade-green flame had just made contact with Yun Fan’s body when the
latter ignited on fire. The already seriously injured Yun Fan did not
have time to maneuver Dou Qi to resist this kind of frighteningly high
temperature. His body erupted into charred black ashes amid a low, deep
The entire yard was completely silent as they looked at the pile of
charred black ashes on the ground. Although the sun was hanging high in
the sky at this moment, Mu Tie and the others appeared as though they
were in a deep abyss. Their entire bodies were icy-cold. An elite Dou
Wang who was still leaping around in a lively manner earlier had ended up
without even a corpse in front of their eyes.
Xiao Yan waved his sleeves and a wind blew, scattering the charred black
ashes on the ground. The jade-green fire wings on Xiao Yan’s back
slowly disappeared. A silver glow flashed under his feet and his body
once again appeared in the yard in a ghost-like manner.
“Big brother Mu Tie, we have not met for three years. Are you still
well?” Xiao Yan’s feet landed on the ground. The coldness on his face
instantly disappeared as a warm smile once again filled the young man
with sunlight. However, no one would think that this young man was some
gentle-hearted person after the scene earlier.
A stiff smile was revealed on Mu Tie’s face when he heard Xiao Yan’s
voce. That manner was extremely ugly. He, too, seemed to have sensed
something as he immediately rubbed his face violently. Only then did he
spoke with a bitter smile, “You… are you really Xiao Yan?”
Xiao Yan was dumbfounded when he heard this. He grinned and said, “Is
there anyone else within the Jia Ma Empire who dares to call himself Xiao
Mu Tie nodded his head in an embarrassed manner. Indeed, the name Xiao
Yan, had basically become a taboo word within the Jia Ma Empire during
these few years. This was all because that enormous sect held a deep
hatred for this name!
“Big brother Mu Tie, thank you very much for the matter back then.”
Xiao Yan slowly walked toward Mu Tie and smiled as he spoke. Those guards
beside the latter immediately tensed up. Their hands were trembling a
little as they held their weapons. They had just witnessed, with their
own eyes, an elite Dou Wang ending up without even a corpse because of
this young man.
Mu Tie waved his hand and scattered the surrounding disgraceful guards.
Only at this moment was Mu Tie able to completely sense that the matter
that had just happened was reality and not an illusion… however, this
reality was far too unbelievable.
“*Cough*… brother Xiao Yan. Ke ke, actually, I had received a mail
from my clan back then to get me to quietly provide you help if possible.
However, I think that it would not be a difficult thing for you to leave
the ‘Zhen Gui Pass’ given your strength back then. That little help
of mine is nothing much.” Mu Tie rubbed his head. That strong build of
his caused him to display an honest and straightforward feeling when he
“Ke ke, the Mu clan huh. Xiao Yan will remember it.” Xiao Yan smiled
and pointed toward the exterior of the city governor’s mansion. He
said, “I’m sorry for my attack being too strong. You might need to
personally show yourself and clear up the place.”
Mu Tie sniffed the bloody stench that was spreading over from the
outside. He immediately laughed bitterly. This fellow was indeed no
longer the sentimental and tender young man of the past. This time
around, I’m afraid that the Misty Cloud Sect will truly be turned
upside down with greater intensity because of this young man.
“Brother Xiao Yan, no matter what, I have to thank you for intervening
today. Otherwise, it is likely that Meng Li’s trick would have
succeeded.” Mu Tie spoke sincerely as he cupped his hands toward Xiao
Yan with a serious expression.
Xiao Yan smiled and waved his hand. After which he crossed his fingers
and said softly, “I have not been to the Jia Ma Empire for three years.
Can I get big brother Mu Tie to tell me about the current situation
within Jia Ma Empire?”
“Ugh, the Jia Ma Empire has been extremely eventful during these few
years. All of these matters were caused by the Misty Cloud Sect.” Mu
Tie knit his brows and sighed. He immediately said to Xiao Yan, “It is
going to be a long story. If brother Xiao Yan is not in a hurry to leave,
please enter the house and allow me to tell you in detail.”
Xiao Yan mused for a moment after hearing this. However, he did not
reject the offer. Now that he was back within the empire, the most
important thing was to understand the situation within the empire.
Otherwise, it would be the most foolish act to simply go on a rampage.
“In that case, I will trouble big brother Mu Tie.”
Mu Tie immediately rejoiced when he saw that Xiao Yan did not reject him.
He hurriedly invited Xiao Yan into the hall. He clearly understood that
if the matter of Xiao Yan returning to the Jia Ma Empire were to spread,
it would definitely become a big event and the most sensational one in
the Jia Ma Empire.
