Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-686
Puff! Puff! Puff!
The low, deep of a physical body exploding repeatedly resounded within
the enormous manor. This sound was like the sickle of a death god.
Without exception, a Misty Cloud Sect’s disciple would turn into ashes
each time it sounded.
The Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples swarmed toward the innermost layer of
the manor like floodwaters. The people behind were completely unaware of
the unexpected changes that had occurred at the front due to their
limited vision. Hence, when their swarming momentum gradually entered a
certain boundary, the sickle of the death god sliced over…
A terror and disturbance finally spread in all directions as an
increasing number of Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples’ bodies strangely
auto-ignited. Hence, the atmosphere fell greatly, spurred on by the
terror. Finally, they were unable to endure any longer and began to
The white-colored torrent that had just come surging over like
floodwaters once again fled miserably in all directions a moment later.
Their panicked manner was as though they were afraid that the strange
auto-ignition would descend upon them.
Hence, the enormous attack of the Misty Cloud Sect began to self-destruct
without being attacked under this strange auto-ignition of bodies. Fear
and shock was present on everyone’s faces. Something that could kill
someone without shape and color had an even easier time eroding a
person’s courage compared to sharp knives and swords.
When the Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples fled for their lives out of the
outermost part of the manor, the unusual phenomenon of the auto-ignition
of bodies gradually began to disappear. However, at this moment, the
Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples had already suffered serious losses.
During that terrifying time of auto-ignition earlier, at least half of
the people were turned to dust in an extremely strange manner…
The manor was covered by a kind of grayish-white powder as the Misty
Cloud Sect’s disciples withdrew in a torrent-like manner. Due to the
large amount of it, it had resulted in a layer that was as thick as a
finger. The powder danced when the breeze blew over. The entire sky was
adrift with terror and bizarre danger, giving one the creeps.
Both the inside and outside of the entire manor had turned into a dead
silence under this treacherous feeling. Just a moment ago, half of the
Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples had been turned into powdery ashes in less
than ten minutes. Regardless of whether it was the members of the Primer
clan, the Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples, or the surrounding observers,
all of them felt a chill over their bodies as though they were in an
This scene was really too terrifying for them.
After the silence continued for a moment, numerous gazes finally began to
turn to the black-robed, young man, who was carrying a heavy ruler, in
the sky. At this moment, the latter was slowly extending both of his
hands. If one were to carefully look at his hands, one would be able to
vaguely see clusters of invisible flames fiercely burning above it. From
the looks of the situation, it was clear that the earlier frightening
auto-ignition frenzy was caused by him!
The Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples who withdrew from the manor displayed
shocked and terrified faces as they looked at Xiao Yan in the air. That
manner was as though they were looking at a vicious, bloodthirsty demon.
The viciousness of the latter’s tactics earlier was enough to leave
behind a phobia in their hearts, one that was difficult to eliminate.
This devil-like human figure would follow them like their shadows,
appearing occasionally in their hearts. It caused their hearts to be
filled with fear.
The members of the Primer clan within the manor looked at the powder
outside of the manor’s courtyard. They, too, involuntarily swallowed a
mouthful of saliva. Their gazes looked at one another with their eyes
filled with shock. The Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples who had beaten them
until they were unable to retaliate earlier were turned into firecrackers
that randomly blasted all over the place. After which, over half of them
were eliminated. Only at this moment did they truly understand that in
the eyes of a truly strong person, a human life was really mere dirt…
Ya Fei was similarly shocked by this frightening scene. Her enchanting
pretty face was somewhat pale as she raised her head to look into the
air. The black-robed, young man’s indifferent face had a thread of
ruthlessness to it. She sighed once again. The hatred Xiao Yan felt
toward the Misty Cloud Sect had truly reached a stage where he anxiously
wanted to eat their flesh. Ya Fei was quite familiar with Xiao Yan’s
character. Normally, he would not do something like this. Hence, the
Misty Cloud Sect only had themselves to blame for all this.
“Ke ke, this fellow is no longer that softhearted young man from back
then… however, this might be considered a good thing for him.” Xiao
Ding did not felt the slightest resistance to Xiao Yan starting a
massacre. Instead, he felt a faint joy within his heart as he laughed and
slowly spoke. His voice contained gratification and an unknown soft sigh.
Ya Fei nodded her head slightly. She was just about to speak when the
sound of orderly horse hoofs suddenly sounded outside of the manor. She
raised her eyes and was surprised to see a dark-black torrent suddenly
swarming from all over the city. A moment later, they had completely
surrounded those Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples outside the manor, not
allowing even water to flow past them.
“These people… are the army of the imperial family?” Ya Fei looked
at those black armored soldiers on horseback with surprise. She felt
somewhat stunned before raising her eyebrows and immediately laughing
softly, “The tactics of Yao Ye are really not bad. They did not appear
when the Primer clan suffered a calamity earlier. They ended up
dispatching their army immediately now that Xiao Yan had returned and the
situation had changed drastically. This speed at which they changed
direction was really quite quick…”
Xiao Ding laughed faintly and said, “They are naturally trying to curry
favor with third brother by maneuvering their military now. However, it
is naturally best that she is trying to court us. There are quite a great
amount of benefits for the Primer clan to have a good relationship with
the imperial family. Moreover, everyone shares the same great enemy known
as the Misty Cloud Sect.
Ya Fei nodded. Her gaze looked at the torrent of metal only to see that a
pathway was split opened. A strong horse slowly sailed out. There was a
lady wearing a purple-black gown and a phoenix crown seated on it. The
lady was tall and her eyes contained a dignity as they flashed. From her
appearance, she was naturally the future female emperor who would
gradually control the Jia Ma Empire’s imperial family, Yao Ye.
“The Misty Cloud Sect has ignored the laws and has assembled a mob to
invade into the capital. Bring all of them away!” Yao Ye waved her
delicate hand and roared. Her eyes were cold as she glanced at the Misty
Cloud Sect’s disciples who were surrounded.
Perhaps they had lost all their courage from having been massacred by
Xiao Yan earlier or perhaps it was because of the threat of the many two
to three meter long spears but these Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples did
not put up much resistance this time around. Instead, they placed their
weapons down in a relaxed manner and allowed these gruff tiger-wolf-like
soldiers to place a shackle that suppressed Dou Qi on their bodies.
Yao Ye also quietly sighed in relief when she saw that these Misty Cloud
Sect’s disciples did not resist. These people from the Misty Cloud Sect
did have some ability. There might be some trouble if they were to resist.
Yao Ye settled the problem in this place before her gaze faintly swept
across the manor. Her delicate hand under her sleeves immediately
tightened when her gaze swept over the powder on the ground. She had saw
some of those people suddenly auto-ignite earlier. Hence, her expression
was currently somewhat uneasy. This kind of strength was really too
great. Was a truly strong person so frightening? No wonder
great-grandfather had always chosen to endure before he had absolute
confidence to deal with Yun Shan.
Her gaze was raised and she looked at the black-robed, young man in the
air. A somewhat moving smile was revealed on Yao Ye’s pretty face. Her
gentle soft voice was emitted from her red lips, “Ke ke, may I know if
I should call you mister Yan Xiao or mister Xiao Yan?”
Xiao Yan glanced at this somewhat familiar looking woman. He knit his
brows and was unable to recall the latter’s identity within a short
amount of time.
“This is princess Yao Ye. You met her back then.” Ya Fei’s laughter
was slowly transmitted to Xiao Yan while he was frowning, causing him to
come to a sudden realization.
Yao Ye smiled at Ya Fei as the former saw her slowly walk out from the
manor. She immediately jumped down from her horse and held the latter’s
hand affectionately. She said, “Ya Fei jie, I’m sorry. Originally I
wanted to come as early as possible but the time needed to dispatch the
army is also quite long.”
Ya Fei did not display any surprise at Yao Ye’s sudden warmth to her.
She smiled. Her heart was well aware that it was likely that the imperial
family was likely trying its best to form a good relationship with Xiao
Yan at this moment. However, some of the matters back then had caused
Xiao Yan to possess quite a poor impression for the other factions within
the Jia Ma Empire. Hence, this intelligent woman in front of her had
chosen to try and court her and use this opportunity to make contact with
“Oh it’s princess Yao Ye…” Xiao Yan also carelessly smiled after
being reminded by Ya Fei. However, he did not display much interest on
the outside. He lifted his head and looked at the chaotic battleground in
the sky before muttering with his mouth, “There is currently no time to
catch up with princess. Let’s slowly talk after I settle all these
This future female emperor of the Jia Ma Empire did not display any
dissatisfaction toward these somewhat cold and indifferent words of Xiao
Yan. She merely nodded with a gentle smile.
Xiao Yan randomly dismissed Yao Ye before the jade-green fire wings on
his back were flapped. His body gradually rushed toward the chaotic
battleground in the sky.
Due to being outnumbered, the few Misty Cloud Sect’s expert Dou Wangs
were already at a disadvantage in the fight within the sky. They could
only parry the attacks and were unable to retaliate. Hence, the situation
instantly became one-sided when a heavy weight, like Xiao Yan, joined in.
The blurry, black figure flashed across the sky for a mere few minutes
when nearly four expert Dou Wangs became seriously injured and fell from
the sky. The fresh blood that they spat out along the way was just like a
red fog that slowly drifted in the air.
The entire city was completely silent as they looked at the repeatedly
defeated expert Dou Wangs from the Misty Cloud Sect. Then they looked at
each other. Anyone could tell that the Misty Cloud Sect did not have the
slightest ability to turn the tide.
Another ruthless fist smashed into the back of a shocked elite Dou Wang.
The fierce powerful force caused him to instantly lose his fighting
strength. In the end, that person fell head first from the sky with no
one knowing whether he was dead or alive.
Xiao Yan slowly exhaled turbid air from his chest. His gaze slowly swept
toward a distant blurry mountain top outside of the capital. A fierce
aura suddenly surged from his body and immediately swept over the entire
The instant that Xiao Yan’s aura erupted, Yun Shan, who was training
with his eyes shut, as well as the white-robed lady in the ‘Forbidden
Hall’ on the distant Misty Cloud Mountain, suddenly opened their eyes.
Their eyes were filled with shock and disbelief…
“This aura… how is it possible?”
