Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-678
The enormous mountain peak stood lonely and silent in a plain. The
cloudy, tall mountain peak was just like a the tip of a blade, faintly
emitting a sharp sword aura as it pierced through the clouds. Loud and
clear training noises and the collision of metals were lingering within
The Misty Cloud Mountain was still the Misty Cloud Mountain from back
then. However, the Misty Cloud Sect located on it had changed drastically
from back then. The entire mountain peak was filled with a countless
number of patrols. Anyone who stepped into it would be immediately
observed by the hidden gazes. It was just like a mountainous fortress
with extremely tight defenses.
This place was the enormous camp of the Misty Cloud Sect!
Due to the Misty Cloud Sect have recruited a large number of disciples,
the current Misty Cloud Sect was undoubtedly much larger than it was
compared to three years ago. This was the reason that they had enough
people to truly put in place a tight defensive line with sentries three
steps apart all over this enormous mountain peak.
Although the strength of the sect had become much stronger, not only did
the outsiders but also some of those Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples
sensed that the current Misty Cloud Sect was no longer the place viewed
by every person within the Jia Ma Empire as a training holy ground. After
three years of varying actions by the Misty Cloud Sect, they had already
become no different than an ordinary faction, using all fair and foul
means in order to expand their strength.
The enormous base of the sect extended all the way to the edge of their
sight on the peak of the Misty Cloud Mountain. Human figures were rushing
about on the enormous open ground. Various curses and sounds of colliding
blades gathered together. Even quite a bit of the faint fog that lingered
in the sky had been expelled. The training holy ground back then no
longer possessed that kind of ethereal and extraordinary atmosphere.
A grand hall stood at the middle of the mountain peak, much like a
ferocious beast creeping up on this place. It faintly emitted a feeling
of having gone through many changes and hardships. This grand hall had
been passed down through the generations since the Misty Cloud Sect had
been established. Hence, it still maintained some of the old ethereal
feeling of the Misty Cloud Sect. However, the dark, cold faces of the
white-clothed guards outside the grand hall created an additional gloomy
feeling to the one that had remained around for a long time.
There were quite a number of people quietly sitting within the large
hall. Their gaze contained some fear as they stared at the old man on the
leader’s seat. They did not dare to emit any unusual sounds.
The old man was wearing a white robe. Cloud lines had been sewn on the
robe. Both of his sleeves had a sword drawn on them. When the sleeves
moved, the sword image appeared real and a sharp sword aura faintly
seeped out from it. The old man had a head covered with white air but his
face had a kind of faint smooth luster, appearing just like that of a
The old man’s shut eyes were slowly opened. A glow that caused one’s
body to feel a chill rushed through his indifferent eyes. Anyone who
accidentally saw the glow within his eyes would immediately feel cold
sweat flowing. They hurriedly shifted their gaze away, not daring to look
directly at him.
Who else other than Yun Shan possessed such a reputation within the Misty
“Is there any news from Yun Fan’s side?” The silence in the hall
continued for awhile. Only then did Yun Shan slowly raise his eyes and
faintly open his mouth to speak.
Everyone in the hall could not help but straighten their bodies after Yun
Shan opened his mouth to speak. One of them hesitated for a moment before
he replied respectively, “Sect leader, Yun Fan has not sent any news
back. I think that he is still waiting for an opportunity.”
“It is just the ‘Zhen Gui Pass’, yet he actually needs to
procrastinate to such an extent.” Yun Shan knit his brows slightly and
said, “Send this order to him. He must control the ‘Zhen Gui Pass’
within five days. Additionally, order the others in the remaining places
to act according to the situation. We will not need to worry about them
stirring any waves.”
“Yes sir!” Everyone hurriedly responded upon hearing Yun Shan’s
“Ke ke, sect leader has made decisive and bold decisions these years.
Without realizing it, the Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples have already
seeped into all the major cities within the Jia Ma Empire. As long as the
order is given when the time comes, it is likely that over half of the
territory of the Jia Ma Empire will belong to us, the Misty Cloud
Sect.” A middle-aged man spoke to Yun Shan with a smile. That smile was
a flattering one.
“This is merely the first step. The footsteps of our Misty Cloud Sect
will not stop at the Jia Ma Empire. Once we completely control the Jia Ma
Empire, the Misty Cloud Sect’s strength will definitely soar. At that
time, there would likely be no other factions within this north-western
region of the Dou Qi continent who can contend with us. At that time, we
only need to wait for the Misty Cloud Sect to become the overlords of the
north-western region, it is only a matter of time for us to truly
dominate the continent.” Yun Shan laughed. His eyes was filled with a
wild ambition that did not match his age.
“Ke ke, sect leader is right. At last, our Misty Cloud Sect could at
the very most be considered a mid-tier faction in the South-Western
Region Factions Grand Meeting. I think that by the time of the next
meeting, we will definitely cause the eyeballs of those who say our Misty
Cloud Sect is short-sighted to fall off.” Agreeing laughter quickly
followed behind Yun Shan’s words.
A faint smile was pulled on Yun Shan’s face. He waved his hand and
said, “How is the progress of the matter that I have ordered?”

A person in the hall immediately stood up after hearing this. He
respectfully said, “Relying on Sect Leader, we have gathered all the
men we need. We are only waiting for sect leader’s order before we can
enter the capital and completely eliminate the Primer clan!” He paused
slightly when he spoke to this point. After which, he spoke in a
hesitating manner, “However, the Primer’s clan Hai Bodong has the
strength of a Dou Huang. I’m afraid it won’t be enough if we simply
rely on those people…”
“Yun Du, Yun Sha, the both of you will lead the troops to completely
eliminate the Primer clan this time around. Remember, after you have
eliminated the Primer clan, you must find the remaining members of the
Xiao clan!” Yun Shan’s gaze looked toward a corner of the hall and
cried out in a low voice.
Two old men who had remained quiet in one corner swiftly stood up and
respectfully replied when they heard Yun Shan’s orders.
Although these two old men kept a low profile, they clearly possessed
quite a high position within the Misty Cloud Sect. This could be seen
from how the voices in the hall became much weaker after they stood up.
“Ke ke, Elders Yun Du and Yun Sha had broken through to the Dou Huang
class with the help of sect leader during these three years. That Hai
Bodong won’t be able to create much trouble with these two people
around.” The person who was reporting earlier smiled and spoke when he
saw these two old men stand up.
Yun Du and Yu Sha also smiled when they heard the somewhat fawning words.
They immediately looked at one another. A strange black glow flashed
through their eyes without leaving a trace behind.
“Your mission is to exterminate the Primer clan and to search for the
remaining members of the Xiao clan. It is likely that the other factions
within the capital will not dare to intervene. Of course, if there are
any factions who are blind, you can just exterminate them together.”
Yun Shan’s gaze slowly swept across the entire place as he spoke in a
Yun Du and Yun Sha once again nodded after hearing this.
Yun Shan leaned his body on the soft chair after he had given all his
instructions. He waved his hand and said, “Since that is the case,
everyone should return to their posts. We will first eliminate the Primer
clan during this period of time…”
Everyone in the hall hurriedly nodded after hearing these words
dismissing them from Yun Shan. They immediately stood up, bowed to Yun
Shan, and slowly withdrew from the large hall.
The hall once again became silent after everyone left. However, this
silence continued for only a period of time before a shadow fluctuated in
a certain dark corner in the hall. Immediately, a cluster of
black-colored fog strangely appeared…
“Remember, you cannot let off any single person of the Xiao clan this
time around! What you did the last time wasn’t very satisfactory.”
The black-colored fog withered and surfaced in the middle of the hall as
a dark sinister voice was slowly emitted from within it.
“What exactly do you want to find from the Xiao clan? It is but a small
clan… yet they actually possess something that can attract you?” Yun
Shan knit his brows. He had been curious about this question for a long
“It is best that you do not ask the questions you aren’t supposed to
ask. There are some things that have no benefit to you if you come to
know about them. Our ‘Hall of Souls’ is able to help you breakthrough
to an expert Dou Zong, but we are also able to turn you back into your
original state.” The dark, cold voice reverberated within the hall,
causing one’s pores to stand.
Yun Shan’s face trembled slightly. The imposing and powerful manner of
Yun Shan from earlier could only nod his head in a somewhat displeased
manner at this moment. He said,”But what if we still cannot find the
thing that you want after killing all the members of the Xiao clan?”
“The Xiao clan is definitely in possession of the thing that we need.
However, we don’t know exactly who is holding on to it. If we cannot
find it here, we can only go and search for Xiao Yan who fled the Jia Ma
“Xiao Yan?” Yun Shan possessed a deep memory of this name. Hence, his
expression became somewhat unnatural when he heard it. He said, “There
has not been much news about that brat during these three years. He might
have long died in some unknown place…”
“Tsk tsk, I’m afraid that I will have to disappoint you…” The
black fog immediately emitted a strange laugh when he heard this, “I
have received some news from the hall some time earlier. Xiao Yan’s
trail was found in the ‘Black-Corner Region,’ which is thousands of
kilometers from the Jia Ma Empire. Moreover, that fellow’s strength is
already sufficient to kill expert Dou Huangs.”
“Kill Dou Huangs? How is that possible?” Yun Shan’s expression
immediately changed. He stood from his chair in shock as he let out an
involuntary cry. Although that fellow had displayed a kind of extremely
powerful fire lotus Dou Skill to kill Yun Leng whose strength was that of
a Dou Wang, but killing a Dou Huang was a completely different concept.
The gap between them was as different as the Heavens and Earth.
“This is nothing impossible… back then, it was a mistake for you to
allow him to flee from the Jia Ma Empire. Hmph, in the future, you might
really end up being killed by that brat’s hands.” The voice from the
black fog was dark and cold.
Yun Shan’s face twitched. A denseness surged into his eyes as he spoke
in a sinister manner, “So what if he can kill a Dou Huang? Back then, I
forced him to flee like a dog that had lost its home. This time around, I
can do the same!”
“Tsk tsk, in that case, I will wish you luck. However, it is best that
you capture all of the remaining members of the Xiao clan before this.
Otherwise, the hall’s chief will really be angry…” The black fog
drifted around aimlessly. It left behind a cold laugh before it strangely
disappeared with a ripple…
When he heard the two words: hall’s chief, the face of even someone as
powerful as Yun Shan became somewhat pale. He looked at the spot where
the black fog had disappeared and he tightened his fist slowly. A dense,
cold glint flashed in his eyes.
“This time around, I will definitely finish off the entire Xiao clan!”
