Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-694
Xiao Yan smiled faintly when he saw that bossy face. He was too lazy to
say any nonsense as he raised his palm aimed it at Aoba from a distance.
A suction force suddenly surged out and forcefully sucked the ‘Ice Fire
Snake Scale Fruit’ from the other person’s hand.
“Bastard, you are seeking death!”
Aoba was immediately embarrassed when he saw Xiao Yan’s sudden actions.
With a furious cry, he waved his hand and the ten plus men beside him
pounced toward Xiao Yan like hungry tigers.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Xiao Yan looked indifferently at the dozen men pouncing over. He randomly
waved his hand and a wind surged out explosively before immediately
smashing violently into the chest of the dozen plus men. The powerful
force smashed at them until they flew backward before finally smashing
away from the crowd, bringing about screams and chaos.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Another wave sounded!
Aoba was also stunned when he saw his ten plus subordinates falling in
the blink of an eye. He was just about to let out a curse when a human
figure flashed in front of them. A black robe strangely surfaced in front
of his eyes as a long arm gently covered his chest. After which, a faint
voice slowly sounded beside his ear, causing his entire body to be
covered with cold sweat.
“Although there is an increasing number of people in the current
Alchemist Association, there are also many more dregs. Today, I shall
help Fa Ma clean up a little…”
A powerful force suddenly erupted from the palm that was pressed on
Aoba’s chest after the voice sounded.
“Grug! Grug! Grug!”
Aoba was heavily struck and sent flying amid numerous stunned gazes in
the transaction area. A mouthful of fresh blood involuntarily spat out,
plastering against the ground for over ten meters before gradually coming
to a stop.
Surprise flashed across the hearts of those around when they saw that
Xiao Yan could defeat Aoba with a random palm. Although this Aoba had a
poor character, he was an expert who was about to advance to the Da Dou
Shi class no matter how one put it. It was really unexpected that he was
unable to even endure one exchange in the hands of this black-robed,
However, everyone threw numerous pitiful gazes toward Xiao Yan after they
became surprise. This fellow might have enjoyed giving that punch but did
he not know that the old fellow Fu Yan always protected his own? Other
than a small number of people in this Alchemist Association whom he did
not dare offend, most of the people felt a little afraid of that
eccentric old man who protected his own.
“You… ugh, you have gotten into trouble. Quick, follow me and leave
this place!” Xue Mei was also shocked at Xiao Yan’s sudden attack.
She looked at Aoba who was lying on the ground in the distance repeatedly
emitting a groan. She hurriedly urged Xiao Yan softly before she pulled
the latter, turned around, and left.
Xiao Yan did not resist Xue Mei pulling him. He glanced at the moaning
Aoba not far away before pulling Zi Yan and following Xue Mei as they
left this noisy place.
The three of them squeezed all the way out of the transaction area but
Xue Mei still did not stop. She pulled Xiao Yan and ran to the exit of
the Alchemist Association. Seeing this, Xiao Yan could only helplessly
remove his hand and speak with a smile toward her, “He is but a useless
second generation. Do we need to act like this?”
“That fellow may indeed be a useless person but his teacher is an Elder
in the association with quite the authority. His reputation is extremely
great in this capital, and he tends to go to great lengths to protect his
own. If we were to wait for that fellow to go and complain, that old
fellow will definitely not let you off.” Xue Mei could only hurriedly
speak in the face of Xiao Yan who was afraid of nothing.
“Frank seemed to be also an association Elder right? Why are you still
afraid of him?” Xiao Yan knit his brows and asked her a question.
“Teacher is merely a tier 4 alchemist now while that Fu Yan is a
genuine tier 5 alchemist. His medicine refining level would not be much
inferior even when compared to the deputy association head. Naturally,
his position far surpasses that of teacher.” Xue Mei sighed. Her heart
was extremely shocked.
Xiao Yan also came to a sudden understanding when he heard this. If one
added all the tier 4 alchemist in the Jia Ma Empire, there would at least
be more than ten of them. However, there were only a few people who were
tier 5 alchemists. Moreover it was difficult for an alchemist to advance
from one tier to another. Some people might even remain in a certain tier
for the rest of their life. It was likely that there was only one
abnormal person in the entire continent who was like Xiao Yan who could
rely on a ‘Heavenly Flame’ and Ya Lao’s rich experience.
The difference between a tier 4 and tier 5 alchemist was just like the
difference between a Dou Ling and a Dou Wang. This was an enormous gap.
Hence, the difference between them was naturally great. It was also
difficult to compare the position between the two.
“Relax, I will be able to take care of myself properly. Just now, I
lended you a hand because I could not help it. Ke ke, it’s fine…”
Xiao Yan was also helpless when he saw the worry and anxiety on Xue
Mei’s pretty face. He did not expect that his stepping out to help her
would cause her more anxiety. At that moment, he could only laugh and
“Hee hee, it’s fine? Little brat really knows how to talk big. It is
likely that there aren’t many people in this capital who could hurt my
student and say everything is fine!” A cold laugh sounded in the
enormous hall of the association not long after Xiao Yan’s words
sounded. A group of people immediately walked over in an aggressive and
quick manner. That leader of the group was an old man who was wearing an
alchemist robe. There was a cauldron shaped badge on the front of his
robes with five silver glowing ripples on the medicinal cauldron. Light
shot in all directions as his robe flapped, appearing extremely
A tier five alchemist! He was actually so great. It really was the case
of failing to recognize talent!
The human flow that was coming and going in the hall immediately paused
when they looked at the badge that represented a kind of honor. Their
faces were filled with respect and envy. That kind of expression…
Xue Mei’s pretty face immediately changed slightly when she saw that
old man. She felt extremely frustrated in her heart. Why was the speed of
this old man, who would not die, so quick?
“He is the one called Fu Yan?” Xiao Yan ignored the surrounding gazes
which seemed to be watching a good show as he turned to Xue Mei and asked
with a smile.
“Yes.” Xue Mei sighed in her heart as she looked at the old man who
displayed a cold smile and anger on his face as he swiftly walked over.
She bit the bullet and nodded her head before immediately whispering,
“You should try to speak as little as possible. This old man should not
dare to make things too difficult for the younger generation like us in
Xiao Yan was noncommittal when he heard this. It was really unexpected
that the Alchemist Association would actually become more terrible during
these three years. He really did not know how that old fellow Fa Ma was
During the time that Xue Mei was speaking softly to Xiao Yan, that Fu Yan
brought a large group and headed to their front in an aggressive manner.
The old man glanced at Xue Mei and immediately narrowed his old eyes to
look at Xiao Yan. He turned his head to the pale-white Aoba beside him
and asked, “Is it this fellow who attacked you?”
“That’s right, teacher. Originally, I was competing with Xue Mei to
purchase a medicinal ingredient to prepare to refine a medicinal pill as
a gift for teacher’s birthday. However, I did not expect that this
fellow would forcefully snatch away the medicinal ingredient when he
appeared. He even launched a heavy attack and beat me up in this manner.
Teacher, you must stand up for me!” Aoba immediately complained with a
crying face when he heard Fu Yan. Of course, he naturally found an
extremely sound reason for himself at such a moment.
“Elder Fu Yan, this matter…” Xue Mei hurriedly cried out. Her
expression immediately changed when she heard Aoba speak such
However, before Xue Mei’s voice sounded, Fu Yan waved his hand and said
faintly, “Xue Mei, this matter has nothing to do with you. You should
not join in. Otherwise, you might go and say some nonsense to old Fu Ke
“You are the one who attacked just now, right? It is really unexpected
that you use such heavy blows despite your young age. Who is your
teacher?” Fu Yan turned his gaze and threw it to Xiao Yan. He spoke in
an old-fashioned cold voice.
Xiao Yan merely smiled when he saw this manner of Fu Yan. He said, “It
is really unexpected that the quality of the association’s Elders is
becoming lower and lower. Bullying others with numbers, taking advantage
of one’s seniority… just a stinky old man…”
The hall immediately became much quieter when everyone heard Xiao Yan’s
words that carried some ridicule. Was this brat’s courage not a little
too great? He actually dared to mock Fu Yan in such a manner in front of
the latter himself.
“What a sharp tongued youth… Good… Good…. Very good….. You have
guts.” As expected, Fu Yan’s expression darkened. In his anger, he
began laughing: “ If you can walk out of the Alchemist Association
unharmed today, then will I, Fu Yan, still have face?”
“This old man is really irritating! Very irritating. Ignore him.” Zi
Yan immediately became somewhat irritated when she heard Fu Yan’s
blabberings. She covered her ears and spoke with curled lips.
The surrounding people smiled a little when they saw this
jade-carving-like little girl suddenly say these words. However, all of
them sensibly shut their mouths when they saw the increasingly gloomy
expression of Fu Yan.
Xiao Yan also gradually became impatient after seeing more and more
people gathering around them to watch the scene. He was too lazy to say
any nonsense to this old man. He pulled Zi Yan and Mei Xun, turned
around, and left.
Fu Yan’s expression immediately turned green when he saw this action of
Xiao Yan. This was the first time that he had met such an arrogant young
person after all these years. Fury immediately blew through him. A
powerful, hot Dou Qi surged out of his body with an angry cry!
The powerful Dou Qi that erupted in an instant immediately caused the
surrounding people to hurriedly take a couple of steps back, afraid of
being innocently caught in the mess.
“Little brat, today, I will help your teacher teach you what is called
respect for your teachers!” A fiery red Dou Qi curled and rose on his
shriveled dried palm like a fierce fire. Fu Yan let out a sharp cry and
his body flashed forward. He immediately turned into a fire figure that
shot explosively toward Xiao Yan’s back.
Quite a number of people in the hall emitted an exclamation when they saw
that Fu Yan actually ignored his status and attacked a younger
generation. Fu Yan was a genuine expert Dou Wang. There was hardly anyone
who could contend with him even within this capital. Moreover, from the
looks of the momentum of his angry attack, it seemed that this
black-robed, young man would at least end up being seriously injured if
he were struck.
Fu Yan moved close to Xiao Yan in a lightning-like manner just as this
thought flashed across everyone’s heart. However, the hand was just
about to grab the latter’s robe when Xiao Yan suddenly waved his arm. A
sleeve of his cut through the air. The sleeve was as hard as metal after
Dou Qi had poured into it.
“Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!”
The sleeves collided with Fu Yan’s fist and a wind erupted out from the
point of contact. Immediately, everyone’s face became shocked as they
saw Fu Yan’s body suddenly fly backward before finally smashing against
the ground miserably. Everyone was stunned!
