Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-687
Yun Shan’s eyes were filled with disbelief. He suddenly stood up and
muttered with his mouth, “How can it be? This little fellow is actually
still alive…” The muttering had just sounded when Yun Shan seemed to
recall something. His expression suddenly changed. His body flashed and
disappeared from this training room in a ghost-like manner.
The direction he had sensed the eruption of this aura earlier was clearly
that of the capital. At this moment… there was a large unit that the
Misty Cloud Sect had sent to the capital!
The grand hall of the Misty Cloud Sect was completely chaotic. Various
noises mixed with panicked voices. Finally, they lingered within the
hall, causing one’s head to expand with giddiness.
Yun Shan also knit his brows because of this chaos when his body flashed
into the grand hall. He cried out in a deep stern voice, “Quiet down.
What a scandal to be in such confusion!”
The noise within the hall immediately began to quietly disappear when
everyone saw Yun Shan who had suddenly appeared. It was finally
completely quiet a moment later.
Yun Shan coldly snorted only after seeing that the grand hall had
recovered its silence. He sat down in the leader’s seat and asked,
“What happened? Is there any news from Yun Du and the others?”
Upon hearing Yun Shan voice his question, an old man in the hall quickly
walked over and spoke respectfully while wearing a somewhat pale
expression, “Reporting to Sect Leader, the spiritual tablet of Yun Fu
and three other Elders have suddenly burst apart a moment ago. The
spiritual tablet of Yun Sha and the other few elders have also become
extremely dim. From the looks of the situation, they have obviously
suffered serious injuries!”
The faces of everyone within the grand hall including Yun Shan twitched
intensely when the old man’s words sounded. The experts whom they had
dispatched to the capital were basically over half the strength of the
current Misty Cloud Sect. Everyone present believed that there was not a
single faction within the Jia Ma Empire, with the exception of the Misty
Cloud Sect, who could block such a large lineup. However, the truth that
was currently placed in front of them had ruthlessly thrown them a slap
on their faces, causing them to be at a loss.
“Elder Yun Cha, have you made a mistake?” The silence continued
within the grand hall for a moment before dry laughter finally sounded.

“I hope that’s the case too…” The Elder who was addressed as Yun
Cha laughed bitterly. He flipped his hand and a pile of broken jade
tablets appeared on the table in front of him. The expressions of those
people who originally had some doubts within their hearts became ugly
when they saw these familiar jade tablets.
“How is this possible. That is two Dou Huangs and seven Dou Wangs.
Which faction within this capital had the ability to eat up all of them?
By just relying on that Primer clan?” An Elder who seemed to have quite
a high status furiously spoke with a changing face.
“Don’t tell me that the three large clans and the imperial family
joined hands?” A person suddenly suggested, causing quite a number of
people to quietly nod their heads. From the looks of it now, it seemed
that this guess was the most reliable one.
“Since they actually dared to join hands and provoke us, the Misty
Cloud Sect, I would like to impeach Sect Leader to give the order to
completely eradicate the three large clans and the imperial family from
the Jia Ma Empire!”
“That’s right. Sect Leader, the Misty Cloud Sect will definitely not
endure this kind of provocation! We must let them pay the price in
Yun Shan’s face was gloomy as his gaze swept toward the group of
agitated Elders and deacons. A moment later, his palm suddenly slammed
violently on the table. The intense sound immediately shocked everyone
within the hall. Their eyes fearfully looked at Yun Shan and did not
quite understand why the latter would be this furious.
“It is not whatever nonsense three large clan joining hands!” Yun
Shan stood up and spoke in a dark, solemn voice. “That little bastard
from the Xiao clan has returned.”
Everyone was startled when they heard this. They were all at a loss. The
small Xiao clan was now lingering on its last breath. How could they have
the ability to defeat that large lineup of the Misty Cloud Sect?
The fury in Yun Shan’s heart grew even more intense when he saw the
lost expressions on everyone’s faces. However, just as he was unable to
control himself and was about to burst out in anger, an exclamation
finally sounded in the hall.
“Don’t tell me it’s that Xiao Yan?”
“Xiao Yan?” The name that was deep within their memories set off the
memory that had been hidden in everyone’s mind for three years within a
short instant. Three years ago, that young man who was not even twenty
years old had ascended the Misty Cloud Mountain by himself. He had relied
on his own strength to contend with the entire Misty Cloud Sect. Although
he ended up being chased out of the Jia Ma Empire, that ferocious
wolf-like young man left behind a deep memory that was difficult to
remove within a countless number of people from the Misty Cloud Sect.
The lack of any news of him during these three years had caused everyone
to gradually forget about that name and young man. However, by mentioning
this name today, the scene from three years ago began to gradually
surface in the minds of every single person…
“Isn’t that fellow dead?” The shock persisted for a moment before
there was finally someone who muttered with some surprise.
“Who told you that he had died?” Yun Shan looked at everyone coldly.
His voice was dark and chilly, “I sensed his aura earlier. It seems
that that fellow should be back. Yun Du and the others might have met
“Even if Elder Yun Du’s group was to met with that fellow, but… but
it is not possible for them to suffer such deaths and injuries right?
That place has two Dou Huangs and seven Dou Wangs… they would not be so
quickly defeated even if they were to meet three or four elite Dou
Huangs! Don’t tell me that Xiao Yan has broken through to the Dou Zong
class within these short three years?” An Elder involuntarily spoke
doubtfully. He had yet to complete his sentence when he began to scoff at
his own words.
“Although he might not have broken through to the Dou Zong class, from
that aura of his earlier, it is likely that he has reached the Dou Huang
class.” Yun Shan slowly spoke. His eyelids involuntarily twitched when
he spoke until this point. Dou Huang… given his current strength, he
was naturally aware that although Xiao Yan’s fighting strength back
then was powerful, his true strength was at the very most that of a Da
Dou Shi or a Dou Ling. However, only after a short three years, that
fellow had actually reached the Dou Huang class? This speed… was indeed
A commotion immediately surged within the grand hall when Yun Shan’s
voice sounded. Even that Elder from earlier revealed a dull face.
Advancing to the Dou Huang class in three short years… this training
talent could only be described as frightening. Looks like, allowing that
brat to flee back then was indeed a most regretful matter.
In three years, he was able to reach the Dou Huang class. It was
difficult to imagine what would happen if he was given another three
As he thought until this point, even someone as sophisticated as Yun Shan
could not help but feel a coldness surging into his heart.
Yun Shan inhaled a deep breath of air. His eyes were lowered and a wave
of killing intent that was difficult to keep in check suddenly swept out
from his heart in all directions. He must not allow that person to remain
alive. Otherwise, that person would eventually become a big trouble that
he would have difficulty finishing off! In the future, the Misty Cloud
Sect might really be completely destroyed by that person’s hands like
what those fellows had said.
“Little bastard. Back then, you can be considered lucky to have fled.
However, don’t blame the old me for being vicious since you have come
looking for me this time around!”
“Sect Leader, what should we do now? Should we send someone to go and
rescue Elder Yun Du and the others?” A person in the grand hall finally
recalled Yun Du and the others who were on the brink of death.
Yun Shan mused for a moment after hearing this. He was just about to nod
his head when the expression of Elder Yun Cha, who was managing the
spiritual tablets of the many Elders in the sect, changed. His voice was
hoarse as he spoke, “I think that it is not necessary. Their spiritual
tablets… have all burst apart.”
The entire place was shocked when these words were spoken. Their heads
immediately felt giddy. That was two Dou Huangs and seven Dou Wangs. This
lineup had actually completely fallen within a short few hours. Such
losses were something that the Misty Cloud Sect had difficulty enduring.
“That bastard. He’s too ruthless!” Furious curses repeatedly
sounded within the hall. However, when they spoke these words, all of
them had forgotten that they did not show any mercy when they had
attacked the Xiao clan back then.
The gloominess on Yun Shan’s face was abnormally withdrawn in the face
of such great losses. He waved his hand with an expressionless face and
suppressed the commotion within the grand hall. His gaze flickered for a
moment before he spoke in an indifferent voice, “There is no longer a
need to send anyone to the capital. That little bastard will come looking
for us himself. Since that is the case, we shall quietly wait…”
Everyone was startled when they heard these words from Yun Shan. Although
there was an unwillingness in their hearts, they did not dare to object
against Yun Shan’s decision. Hence, all they could do was respond
“Tell everyone that the Misty Cloud Sect will enter a high alert state
from now on. Kill anyone who privately ascends the mountain!”
Everyone felt a chill all over their bodies when they heard the dark
chilly killing intent in Yun Shan’s words as they hurriedly responded.
Yun Shan immediately waved his hand and all of them swiftly swarmed out
of the grand hall…
The hall was once again completely silent after everyone had left.
“Tsk tsk, how is it? I have just told you some time earlier that Xiao
Yan had survived very well within the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Looks
like the Misty Cloud Sect will be faced with quite the trouble with his
return this time around…” The silence continued for a long time
before a cluster of black fog suddenly and strangely appeared in the
shadows of the grand hall. It immediately lingered in the large hall as
an unusual laugh sounded from within it.
Yun Shan’s face twitched. A ferocity flashed across his eyes as he
spoke in a dense manner, “He is but a little bastard. Even though he
currently possesses the strength of a Dou Huang, this ancestor (refer to
rank Dou Zong) can still kill him easily. Once I capture him, I will let
him taste a feeling that is worse than death!”
“I am unconcerned about the grudge between the two of you.
Coincidentally, he has returned. In that case, most of the members of the
Xiao clan have been gathered. It also saves us the trouble of going to
the ‘Black-Corner Region’ to search for him.” The black fog moved
and a voice once again sounded, “According to our information, Xiao Yan
has the spiritual body of Yao zun-zhe within his body. It is likely that
he has borrowed the help of Yao Chen’s spirit in order to kill an
expert Dou Wang with his Da Dou Shi’s strength. Leave Yao Chen for me
to deal with the next time around. All you need to do is to capture Xiao

Yun Shan nodded slowly. A savage look surged onto his face as he spoke
sinisterly, “Relax, I will cripple that little bastard’s Dou Qi
before handing him to you…”
“Hopefully. However, I would like to remind you that it is best not to
underestimate your opponent. Otherwise, your ending at that time might be
The black fog moved slightly as that unusual laugher was once again
emitted. Immediately, it strangely and slowly disappeared from within the
grand hall, leaving behind the cold smile and savage face of Yun Shan…
