Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-703
“The Serene Sea Scaly Beast has already recovered its strength. In that
case, we will be able to start the big fight with the Misty Cloud Sect
after Old Hai refines and absorbs the ‘Spiritual Purple Recovery
Pill’ to recover his peak strength…
Xiao Yan was more idle during the remaining two days after the Serene Sea
Scaly Beast had completely recovered. Although it was the big fight with
the Misty Cloud Sect two days later, he had already managed to arrange
all the experts on his side. Hence, it seemed that he had nothing to do.
During these two days, the imperial family, the Alchemist Association,
the Primer clan, the Mu clan, and the Nalan clan had all begun to
maneuver their strength and gather all the experts that they had
scattered all over the place, making perfect preparations for the big
fight during this two days time period.
It was only natural that the large scale maneuver of the few large
factions could not escape the notice of those in the outside world.
Hence, it gave a countless number of people the feeling that a disaster
was about to strike. Some of the shrewd people vaguely guessed something
after they joined the dots with the arrogance of the Misty Cloud Sect
some time earlier. However, most of the people kept their mouths shut
since this was a very big matter. They were afraid of getting into
However, what caused everyone to feel uncertain was that the Misty Cloud
Sect was still completely quiet despite the large factions gathering
experts from all over the place. It was as though the storm in the
outside world had nothing to do with them.
Time swiftly flowed by like the sand between one’s fingers in this
storm filled city. If one counted the time, there was merely a day’s
gap to the decisive fight two days from now!
The backyard of the Xiao Mansion.
Xiao Yan was standing on a tall building in the backyard. His gaze swept
across the well lit enormous city. Finally, he looked at the distant
mountain peak hidden in the black night. The hand under his sleeves was
unknowingly tightened. Tomorrow… will be the time of the decisive
battle. He had lost and fled like a dog that had lost all hope last time.
What would be the ending this time around?
Xiao Yan pursed his lips as he shifted his gaze down. He looked at the
Xiao Mansion, which was repeatedly emitting a low cry from the training
conducted, and slowly exhaled. Although the current Xiao clan had tried
its best to strengthen itself, its safety and development in the future
was going to be decided by the decisive battle tomorrow. If he won, the
Xiao clan would naturally become an established and noble clan within the
Jia Ma Empire. If he lost, it was likely that they would truly descend
into the danger of being annihilated…
Therefore, the fight tomorrow was extremely critical to the Xiao clan!
The night wind blew over Xiao Yan’s hair. He suddenly smiled, turned
his head, and spoke faintly, “I have not seen your figure for two days
and thought that you had already left…”
Xiao Yan words had just sounded when there was sudden ripple in the air.
A bewitching cold figure slowly appeared. It was surprisingly Queen
Medusa who had just appeared heard Xiao Yan’s words. She glanced at him
before speaking in an indifferent tone, “You have not refined the
‘Soul Recovery Pill’. Yet you want me to leave?”
“Do you really have a great desire to kill me?” Xiao Yan suddenly
turned and looked at the cold moving face before suddenly asked.
This sudden question caused Medusa to reveal an instantaneous expression.
Her face immediately turned cold as she said, “You have used an
underhanded tactic to take my body. Should I not kill you?”
Xiao Yan smiled and slowly walked nearer Medusa. His gaze was somewhat
unafraid as he observed the cold, glamourous face which appeared as
though it would break when it was blown against. He smiled and said,
“The matter back then was not my intention. Honestly speaking, I was
also forced to do it. Of course, you will think that I am finding excuses
no matter what I say now… as for the ‘Soul Recovery Pill,” I will
naturally help you refine it at the time that we have agreed on. It is up
to you whether you want to consume it or not at that time.”
“Why would I not consume it? As long as I consume the ‘Soul Recovery
Pill’, the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ would no longer have any
influence on me. At that time, I will naturally not hesitate a little
when I kill you!” Medusa did not hesitate as she spoke after hearing
Xiao Yan smiled when he saw Medusa’s firm expression. He softly said,
“Is that really the case? Although you have always said that you will
attack me and you have not done it because of the spirit of the ‘Heaven
Swallowing Python’, I do not believe that a Queen Medusa would actually
be influenced by it to such an extent. If you really have a killing
intent within your heart, there are many times for you to attack… you
are not a despicable person… I believe that.”
Medusa’s pretty, bewitching, long eyes narrowed slightly. Her cold face
was immediately filled with an allure as she glanced at Xiao Yan and
coldly said, “Don’t tell me that you think that I will still have
feelings toward you? This Queen is not a human female who would gradually
descend after her body is taken by someone! The act you have done to me
will only cause the hatred between us to become greater!”
Xiao Yan spread his hands in a noncommittal manner. He leaned against a
pillar and his gaze lazily looked at Medusa. A moment later, he suddenly
said, “If you really want my life, you actually do not need to wait
until after you consume the ‘Soul Recovery Pill’. Even I don’t have
the confidence of victory in this decisive fight with the Misty Cloud
Sect. If I am not careful, I might die in Yun Shan’s hands. At that
time, you will also be free..”
Those picture-like eyebrows twitched. However, Medusa’s face was as
indifferent as it was before, “I will be grateful to Yun Shan if you
really die in his hands…”
“Ke ke, hopefully that will be the case…” Xiao Yan laughed. He
waved his hands toward Medusa before saying, “It is already late. Go
and rest first. The big fight will begin tomorrow. Life or death, victory
or defeat. Let’s leave it up to fate…” Once Xiao Yan said this, he
decisively turned his body and headed down the stairs before slowly
disappearing from Medusa’s sight.
The indifferentness slowly disappeared on Medusa’s face as she looked
at the gradually disappearing back. She tightened her delicate hand and a
struggle appeared between her eyebrows. A moment later, the struggle
transformed into a soft sigh that contained a complicated emotion which
slowly reverberated across this building…
A large hall in the Imperial City.
“Great-grandfather, the imperial family’s hundred thousand elite
soldiers have already been placed at a spot not far from the Misty Cloud
Mountain. We will seal up the mountain once the big fight begins
tomorrow. At the expert level, there are three additional expert Dou
Wangs whom we have groomed for many years on top of great-grandfather and
the Serene Sea Scaly Beast. These are already the main strength that our
imperial family is able to take out.” Under the lamp light, Yao Ye knit
her brows slightly and softly spoke to Jia Xing Tian.
Jia Xing Tian nodded slightly. At this moment, this old man with
extraordinary experience also appeared somewhat uneasy. This time around,
the stakes of their bet were a little too large. If anything wrong were
to happen, it would implicate the entire imperial family.
“You guess… what is the chances of our victory this time around?”
Jia Xing Tian finally asked softly a moment later.
“Great-grandfather need not be overly concerned. The strength of our
current alliance is not weaker than the Misty Cloud Sect. Moreover, there
is mister Xiao Yan’s teacher. Isn’t he also an elite Dou Zong. We
will definitely win this big fight.” Yao Ye smiled and replied.
However, her smile was a little forced, exposing the uncertainty in her
“Ugh… hopefully. This time around, I have gambled the entire imperial
family…” Jia Xing Tian sighed and spoke slowly.
The Primer clan.
“Old Hai, we have already gathered all of our clan’s elites. Once the
order is given tomorrow, they will gather with the other few sides and
begin the life and death fight with the Misty Cloud Sect.” Ya Fei stood
in a large hall and looked at Hai Bodong who was standing beside a window
with his hands behind him. She smiled while she spoke.
Hai Bodong also turned his head around when he heard Ya Fei’s voice. He
smiled and nodded before letting out a long sigh, “Everything is
already in place. Next, we will have to see just which side the heavens
will stand on in this big fight…”
Ya Fei quietly nodded. This big fight would determine the life and death
of two large factions. Should one party be defeated in such a big fight,
that party would be beyond redemption. This kind of ending was not
Ya Fei’s pretty eyes swept toward the window. She looked in the
direction of the Xiao Mansion and smiled slightly. She had a strange
confidence in that young man…
At the same time, the alchemist association…
The Mu clan…
The Nalan clan…
Many people did not sleep this night.
When the first morning sunlight broke through the shackles of the clouds
and landed on this enormous capital, quite a large amount of human flow
began to appear on the empty streets.
Xiao Yan, who was seated cross-legged on a bed, suddenly opened his eyes.
His body shook and strangely disappeared.
At this moment, there were over a hundred black-clothed individuals who
were standing quietly in the originally empty compound in the front yard
of the Xiao Mansion. The dense bloody aura lingered and gathered
together. A timid person would be struck by terror when looking at it.
Lin Yan, Zi Yan, Old Yin Gu, and the other strong people were standing
quietly in front of these black-clothed people. An unusual pressuring
aura covered the courtyard.
“Is everyone prepared?” The quiet atmosphere was suddenly broken by a
laugh. Immediately, a black-robed human figure suddenly flashed and
appeared on the stairs. He laughed toward everyone below.
“Bang!…” A sound appeared as over a hundred black-clothed
individuals orderly knelt with one knee on the ground. They did not speak
and their aura was not the least bit weak.
Xiao Yan smiled with satisfaction when he saw this. Threads of heat
gradually surged in his dark-black eyes. Today was the decisive life and
Fighting intent surged in Xiao Yan’s chest as the jade-green fire wings
appeared behind him. He flapped them slightly and his body was suspended
in the air. He abruptly raised his head and let out a clear roar!
The roar was like thunder that reverberated throughout the entire city
for a long time, causing many to throw him a sidelong glance.
A couple of other spots in the capital also suddenly emitted a couple of
roars in response not long after Xiao Yan’s roar was emitted. These
roars were covered by a powerful Dou Qi and continued to resound through
every single corner of the city.
“The Misty Cloud Sect is arrogant and despotic, intending to launch a
revolt. The imperial family is willing to lend a hand to the Xiao clan to
wipe out the traitors!”
“The Primer clan is willing to lend a hand!”
“The Alchemist Association is willing to lend a hand!”
“The Mu clan is willing to lend a hand!”
“The Nalan clan is willing to lend a hand!”
“The X clan is willing to lend a hand!”
“The S clan is willing to lend a hand!”
“The Y clan is willing to lend a hand!”
A prideful aura was aroused from the roars that had begun sounding from
all over the place. Xiao Yan’s black hair hung loose. His laughter
spread like thunder and the great pride within it caused everyone in the
city to shake!
“Misty Cloud Sect, Xiao Yan from the Xiao clan is here to collect your
