Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-684
The laughter reverberated through every single corner of the capital like
a devil’s curse, causing everyone’s body to suddenly stiffen. They
became just like statues, unable to move…
This name which had already become somewhat foreign caused the faces of
many people in the city to be at a loss after hearing it. Three years was
enough time for people to forget many things. Of course, this kind of
faded memory needed only a small trigger in order to allow it to once
again return to everyone’s mind.
Under this soft laughter, the faces of many people continued to be at a
loss for a moment before waves of exclamations were suddenly emitted.
“Xiao Yan? He is that fellow who had turned the Misty Cloud Sect upside
down three years ago?”
“Wasn’t it said that he had died while being chased by the Misty
“Nonsense! He was only chased out of the Jia Ma Empire by the Misty
Cloud Sect. However, it is really unexpected that he has already become
this strong in these short three years. It is really too terrifying…”
“The Xiao clan seems to be the clan destroyed by the Misty Cloud Sect
“Hee hee, didn’t you hear what he had just said, he has come to
collect debt. The Misty Cloud Sect, tsk tsk, looks like they need to be
prepared to repay the blood debt! This Xiao Yan was able to turn the
Misty Cloud Sect upside down three years ago and even killed their First
Elder. From the looks of his attack just now, it is clearly much stronger
than three years ago. Hee hee, looks like this Misty Cloud Sect cannot be
arrogant for much longer…”
Private conversations from all over the city were repeatedly spread.
Within only a short period of time, this information was spread
throughout the capital. The black-robed, young man carrying the heavy
ruler in the sky had once again been found in the memories of everyone
from three years ago.

Jia Lao watched the black-robed, young man flapping his jade-green fire
wings in the sky from the tall tower within the imperial city. Even
though he had identified the latter through his aura earlier, this
guardian of the imperial family still let out a long sigh when he saw
Xiao Yan truly reveal his identity. A glow flickered within both of his
eyes. He smiled and spoke in a manner as though he had removed a heavy
burden, “How unexpected, how really unexpected. This fellow has
actually returned once again. Ha ha, it is likely that it won’t be so
easy for the Misty Cloud Sect to fulfill its wild ambitions this time
“Great grandfather, he is…” Yao Ye slowly recovered from the shock
of the person in the sky defeating Yun Du and the three others with one
punch. Her eyebrows became vertical when she heard the somewhat familiar
name as she spoke.
“Do you still remember the Yan Xiao from the Alchemist Grand Meeting
back then?” Jia Xing Tian laughed.
A glow flickered in Yao Ye’s eyes. She had also recalled that renowned
person within the capital three years ago. Shock drew across her elegant,
pretty face, “It is actually him… was he not chased out of the Jia Ma
Empire by the Misty Cloud Sect?”
“Ke ke, he can naturally return after leaving…” Jia Lao laughed and
said, “I told you back then that this person was definitely not an
ordinary person. Tsk tsk, three years ago, his true strength was but that
of a Da Dou Shi. Now, however, from the sharpness and speed that he had
displayed when he intervened earlier… it is likely that even I am no
match for him!”
Yao Ye was immediately stunned when she heard this. She was extremely
clear about Jia Xing Tian’s strength. The only person in this entire
Jia Ma Empire who could defeat him was likely that old roan from the
Misty Cloud Sect. However, no matter how one put it, Yun Shan was an
expert who had been training for many years. Yet, this Xiao Yan was
merely around twenty years old even if they rounded up his age!
An elite Dou Huang who was only around twenty years old. Even with Yao
Ye’s cool head, just thinking about this caused her to be momentarily
absent-minded. This fellow was indeed frightening…
“Great grandfather’s eyes are indeed very sharp. Fortunately, we did
not gain any enmity with him…” Yao Ye gently patted her voluminous
breasts as she spoke in a rejoiced manner.
“Ugh, actually back then I did think that this fellow would definitely
be extraordinary in the future but I never expected that he is able to
reach this level within just three short years…” Jia Lao sighed. A
gloating expression immediately surfaced on his face as he said,
“However, this is just as well. The Misty Cloud Sect has destroyed the
Xiao clan and has already become irreconcilable enemies with Xiao Yan. In
this way, Jia Ma Empire has an additional strong person like Xiao Yan.
Hee hee, I no longer need to be overly worried about Yun Shan!”
“Yao Ye, remember, make contact with Xiao Yan after today’s matter is
over. At the very least, we must let him gain a favorable opinion of our
imperial family.” Jia Lao mused for a moment before suddenly speaking.
An unusual glow flickered within Yao Ye’s eyes as she looked at the
black-robed, young man flapping his jade-green fire wings in the sky.
This fellow, could really be considered a great genius favored by the
“I suggest that we immediately maneuver our army to suppress the Misty
Cloud Sect’s attack. Although acting at this moment could not be
considered to be delivering charcoal in a snowstorm, it is better than
waiting for everything to settle. It is likely that the effect of trying
to show our goodwill will be extremely weak at that time.” Yao Ye
fluttered her eyelashes gently and spoke in a gentle voice. However, she
was displaying an impressive schemingness. She naturally possessed a mind
that an ordinary person could not compare with in order to be groomed as
the female emperor of the Jia Ma Empire.
TL: delivering charcoal in a snowstorm – lending a hand when another
needed it the most
Jia Xing Tian hesitated a little upon hearing this before nodding
heavily. He knew that he would be somewhat stupid if he were to still be
indecisive at such a moment. Now that the Jia Ma Empire possessed a
strong person like Xiao Yan, they would have some chances of victory even
if they were to end up fighting with Yun Shan in the future.
Yao Ye immediately rejoiced when she saw Jia Xing Tian nod his head. She
immediately ceased speaking any nonsense and immediately began to give
At the Alchemist Association, Fa Ma exhaled a breath that was suppressed
in his chest. He lifted his head and studied the black-robed, young man
in the distant sky. A smile was revealed on his old face. He also knew
that Xiao Yan’s sudden appearance would break the situation where the
Misty Cloud Sect dominated the Jia Ma Empire.
“This fellow is indeed not an ordinary person. Yun Shan, allowing him
to flee back then might well be the thing that you regret the most in
your entire life.”
The Mu clan. The head of the Mu clan, Mu Cheng, also slowly withdrew his
gaze from the sky and turned his head to look at all the core members of
the Mu clan. He could not resist proudly laughing, “All of you have
short-sighted mouse eyes. Back then, all of you found so many excuses
when I said to quietly lend Xiao Yan a hand. Does it now feel good to
have a slap thrown on your faces? Ha ha!”
All the clan members in the Mu clan could only smile bitterly and nod
their heads when they saw the proudly laughing Mu Chen. All of them
helplessly moaned in their hearts. Who was able to imagine that the
fellow who was being chased like a dog that had lost its home back then
would actually be able to reach a stage where he could truly challenge
the Misty Cloud Sect within a short three years?
Compared to the various laughs in the other few areas, the atmosphere in
the Nalan clan appeared exceptionally stiff and depressing. This
depressing atmosphere was emitted from the completely stiffened Nalan
Jie’s body after that soft laughter of Xiao Yan’s sounded.
Nalan Su also bitterly sighed as he looked at Nalan Jie, whose face was
so stiff that he appeared like a dry corpse. That expert in the sky who
could reverse the entire situation of the Jia Ma Empire had nearly become
their son-in-law back then…
“Father…” Nalan Su finally could not resist whispering a moment
“Ugh…” A sigh which was filled with dense bitterness was slowly
emitted from Nalan Jie’s mouth. He waved his hand in a depressed manner
and said, “Although I am not certain if Xiao Yan will still pay
attention to us at this moment, we should try our best to make contact
with him for the sake of our clan.”
“Father, it’s all because of Yanran’s selfish, young character.
Otherwise…” Nalan Su could not help but say when he looked at Nalan
Jie’s dejected manner.
“We cannot put the entire blame on her. Back then, Xiao Yan helped me
expel the poison, but we did not help him when he ended up being chased
after by the Misty Cloud Sect because we were afraid of the latter. It is
likely that Xiao Yan will not forget about this matter given his
character. Hence, I am also responsible for these matters…” Nalan Jie
smiled sadly and mocked himself, “It is really unexpected that in my
old age my eyes would become this blind and my heart this muddled…”
Nalan Su was silent. He could sense just how much regret was in Nalan
Jie’s heart at this moment… However, there was no medicine for regret
that they could purchase in this world…
The black-robed, young man, who was carrying the heavy ruler in the sky,
slowly turned around. He studied the completely stunned Hai Bodong not
far away. He smiled slightly and slowly bowed, “Old Hai, thank you for
taking care of the Xiao clan these few years.”
“Xiao Yan?” Hai Bodong muttered. A moment later, he finally recovered
and looked at the somewhat familiar young face. A wild joy gradually
surged onto his face, “You brat, you have finally return!”
Xiao Yan also smiled when he saw Old Hai’s extremely excited face.
However, he did not have the time to go into the details when a cry
filled with disbelief was transmitted over, “Xiao Yan? How can it be?
You are actually still alive?”
“I will first dispatch these people here before conversing more with
Old Hai.” Xiao Yan smiled to Hai Bodong before turning his head and
looking at the faces of disbelief of Yun Du and the other three people
not far away. He laughed softly, “How can I die so easily when I have
yet to kill old dog Yun Shan with my hands? Back then, I said that I,
Xiao Yan, will return once again…”
Yun Du’s expression changed rapidly. Xiao Yan’s sudden appearance had
completely broken their initial plan. However, it was fortunate that this
fellow was exactly the same as he was back then. There was only him
alone. Given the enormous faction of the Misty Cloud Sect, this fellow
would not gain anything even if he were to return!
“Arrogant brat. There is no need for the Sect Leader to act if we want
to deal with you! We have already taken precautions to deal with any
person who blindly comes to create trouble!” Yun Du raised his head and
suddenly let out a cold laugh. He immediately and swiftly took out a
signal container from his storage ring and pulled at it with a great
force. A gorgeous firework suddenly charged up and spread apart in the
A couple of stern whistles suddenly sounded from outside of the capital
not long after the fireworks exploded. Immediately, five rays of light
swiftly drew through the sky and appeared in the sky a moment later!
The city immediately emitted waves of exclamation following the
appearance of the five human figures. One could see five bright Dou Qi
wings. These five people were actually all experts of the Dou Wang class!
It seemed that the Misty Cloud Sect had truly put in a great effort in
order to eliminate the Primer clan without any obstacles!
Seven Dou Wangs, two Dou Huangs. This kind of frightening lineup once
again caused the entire city to emit a sound of the inhalation of cool
air. This Misty Cloud Sect faction was indeed extremely frightening. From
the looks of it, even with the return of a strong person like Xiao Yan
today, one would have difficulty obtaining much of an advantage.
“Are you going to rely on larger numbers again? Indeed, a dog cannot
stop itself from eating shit.” Xiao Yan was also startled when he saw
the nine human figures suspended in the sky. However, he immediately
laughed with some interest.
“Xiao Yan, be careful, you cannot be careless!” Hai Bodong swiftly
rushed to Xiao Yan’s side and spoke with a solemn expression.
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He immediately raised his gaze and looked at
Yun Du on the opposite side. Suddenly he laughed, “Do you think that I
will still suffer the same disadvantage that I suffered back then without
making any preparations?” Xiao Yan suddenly clapped his hands softly
after saying this. That clap was just like thunder that swept across the
Yun Du and the others were stunned when they saw Xiao Yan’s actions. An
instant later, the sound of rushing wind suddenly sounded from Xiao
The gazes of the entire city were hurriedly shifted when the sound of
rushing wind appeared. Finally, numerous gazes became dull as they looked
at the sky outside of the capital. Over ten human figures were swiftly
rushing over from that direction. The Dou Qi wings on the backs of these
people were so bright that they appeared extremely dazzling.
“Next, let us give you a taste of your own medicine…”
The expressions of Yun Du and the others instantly turned pale when Xiao
Yan’s teasing laughter sounded!
