Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-708
An earth-shaking explosion resounded across the sky like rolling-thunder.
One could still clearly hear it even over a hundred kilometers away…
The loud thunder resounded across the sky, causing a countless number of
people on the open ground to lift their heads in shock. They could only
see that the deep-purple flame had become like a prairie. The enormous
sky was occupied by the fire wave. At the middle of the purple fire wave
was a cluster of dark-green flame that was unusually bright. It stood
majestically still regardless of how the deep-purple flame attacked.
The strange dark-green flame suddenly shook after a couple of breaths.
Immediately, an intense firestorm erupted from it. Any area occupied by
the dark-green flame would cause the purple flame to immediately become
like boiling oil meeting ice as it swiftly scattered. That manner
actually seemed as though it was no match for an exchange with the
The dark-green flame was merely a few feet wide initially. However, after
the instantaneous expansion, the deep-purple flame that had spread all
over the sky was expelled and swallowed by the other flame in the blink
of an eye…
“Grug! Grug! Grug! Grug!”
The human figure that was hidden under the cluster of deep-purple flame
was finally revealed after the flame had been expelled. The frightening
strength that had instantaneously erupted poured over his body in a
torrent-like manner. A mouthful of fresh bright-red blood was spat out in
front of the eyes of a countless number of people. The body became just
like a bird with broken wings as it descended weakly from the sky.
The body swiftly fell in front of the many stunned gazes in the open
ground. When it was still around a couple of dozens of meters from the
ground, the somewhat gloomy-faced Yun Shan above the wedding stage
finally waved his sleeve. A force received the body and it slowly landed
on the ground.
Gu He’s expression was pale-white when he landed on the ground. The
corner of his mouth was filled with traces of blood. Some depressed
feeling was in his eyes. He clearly understood that the frightening
strength that Xiao Yan had unleashed earlier was something that was
impossible for him to receive. Moreover, he clearly sensed that Xiao Yan
had quietly withdrew some force just before the latter unleashed his
strength. Otherwise, it was likely that even Gu He would have a difficult
time preserving his life today. At the very least, he was seriously
The numerous gazes around looked at the pale-faced Gu He on the opposite
side. The place was instantly completely silent. Everyone looked at each
other. The shock that remained in their eyes caused them to still have
some difficulty accepting reality.
A member of the younger generation who was merely around twenty years old
had actually defeated a genuine elite Dou Huang within a short ten
exchanges. This kind of frightening strength really caused some people to
feel the situation was little too dream-like…
Numerous stunned gazes paused on Gu He for a moment. Then, they
immediately and simultaneously moved toward the sky without any prior
agreement. At this moment, the dark-green flame that had spread over the
sky had disappeared. A black-robed, young man was suspended in it. The
dark-green flame burned slowly. The demeanor of the expert was in its
Jia Xing Tian and the others watched Gu He who was defeated in the final
attack from a certain spot in the sky. They also sighed in relief and
exchanged looks with one another. All of them were quietly stunned. This
fellow was indeed frightening. The terrifying attack that he had
displayed earlier was likely something that only Hai Bodong and Jia Xing
Tian could block.
“We have one less headache now that Gu He has been defeated. Given his
character, he would definitely not go back on his word after agreeing to
Xiao Yan’s challenge in front of so many people.” Hai Bodong wiped
the cold sweat off his forehead and laughed.
“Aye, however, the intense big fight earlier has exhausted Xiao Yan
greatly. Fortunately, this fellow has quite a number of medicinal pills.
His Dou Qi recovery speed is far greater than what an ordinary person
could compare with. Otherwise, the situation might be quite bad in the
big fight with Yun Shan later.” Jia Xing Tian nodded his head and
spoke. He had watched Xiao Yan stuff a couple of medicinal pills into his
mouth after defeating Gu He earlier.
“When the big fight begins later, all of you should go and block the
Elders of the Misty Cloud Sect. Do not allow them to create a formation
and attack together. Otherwise, it is likely that there will be quite a
lot of trouble. As for Yun Shan, let’s do as Xiao Yan said before.
Leave him to Xiao Yan to handle.” Hai Bodong’s gaze slowly swept
toward the enormous Misty Cloud Sect and spoke in a deep voice while
looking at those Misty Cloud Sect’s Elders who were suspended in the
“Allow him to deal with Yun Shan alone… isn’t that a little
risky?” The deputy head of the Alchemist Association, Qi Mi Er,
hesitated for a moment before saying.
“Relax, you should not forget that Xiao Yan still has the help of that
mysterious teacher. Moreover, if he really cannot do it, Old Jia and I or
the Serene Sea Scaly Beast can swiftly free ourselves and lend him a
helping hand. Given the frightening strength of the few of us, it is
likely that we could even contend against Yun Shan for awhile.” Ha
Bodong’s gaze glanced at Yun Shan in the middle of the wedding stage in
the open ground and slowly replied.
“I will issue the signal when the fight begins. At that time, the
hundred thousand soldiers at the foot of the mountain will immediately
attack the mountain while being personally led by Yao Ye!” Jia Xing
Tian nodded his head and spoke in a deep voice.
Hai Bodong also nodded slightly upon hearing this. His gaze focused
intently on Yun Shan as he coldly said, “Next, we will have to keep a
close eye on this old bastard…”
The eyes of the pale-faced Gu He on the open ground finally began to
recover some color after he was momentarily absent-minded. He lifted his
head to look at the tall black-robed, young man and laughed bitterly.
“You have won!”
Everyone in the open ground was stunned when they heard Gu He personally
opening his mouth to admit defeat. They could imagine just how much a
great blow of defeat affected Gu He.
“I will not intervene in the matter between you and the Misty Cloud
Sect today.” Gu He suddenly smiled. His gaze immediately swept toward
Yun Yun, who was quietly standing under the wedding stage. His body
trembled and the carefully made wedding robe was being torn inch by inch
before finally turning into fragments that were scattered on the ground.
“Yun Yun, perhaps your choice is correct. I am indeed inferior to
Yun Yun was silent as she looked at Gu He’s bitter smile. Gu He had an
extreme pride deep within his bones. One could imagine just what kind of
blow he had received after being defeated by Xiao Yan in order to cause
him to say such words. However, she did not say any other words at this
moment. It was only a long while later before she softly inquired, “Are
“I don’t have many serious injuries…” Gu He waved his hand. He
immediately raised his head and looked at Yun Shan on the wedding stage.
He cupped his hands together and said, “Sect Leader Yun Shan, Gu He has
lost today and must do as I promised. I will no longer intervene in the
matter between both parties. Sect Leader, please end this wedding.
Gu He ignored Yun Shan’s ugly expression after saying these words. He
turned around and strode out of the Misty Cloud Sect in front of the many
observing gazes around him.
Many private conversations sounded on the open ground after Gu He’s
figure slowly disappeared. Some of those experts who were invited by Gu
He exchanged looks with each other. They let out bitter laughter. Since
the main character had already left, there was no meaning to them staying
behind. They possessed quite a deep relationship with Gu He and would
naturally not reject him if he wanted them to lend him a hand. However,
Gu He had lost without complaint and it was natural that they could not
forcefully attack. Moreover, even if they wanted to step forward, it was
likely that they would only end up seeking their own humiliation. Even
someone of Gu He’s strength was unable to endure more than ten
exchanges with Xiao Yan, much less them.

Since Gu He had already left, they would naturally not continue to stay.
Although they felt great anticipation for the frightening great battle
that was about to erupt on this Misty Cloud Mountain, they were no fools.
It was likely that they would end up in trouble if they were to be
dragged into such a situation.
Hence, after these people quietly exchanged glances, the better ones
cupped their hands toward Yun Shan on the wedding stage while those
eccentric ones did not even say a word before all of them turned around
and headed out of the Misty Cloud Sect.
The open ground immediately became a little emptier after these experts
left. Those that had remained were mostly people who were invited by the
Misty Cloud Sect as well as experts or factions that feared the might of
Yun Shan. Although they knew that they would merely get innocently
implicated into the matter if they continued to remain in this place,
they could only toughen their skin and remain in the face of Yun Shan’s
increasingly solemn expression.
On the wedding stage, Yun Shan’s eyelids twitched while these experts
left with Gu He. His expression was gloomy. He had planned to get Xiao
Yan’s and Gu He’s people to engage in a big fight while he ended up
benefiting from it. However, he did not expect that Xiao Yan would
actually propose this ten exchange agreement and really end up defeating
Gu He within ten exchanges. Moreover, what caused his anger to rise was
that this single-minded Gu He acted in such a trustworthy fashion and
obediently led his people away.
“Foolish person. He only has some skill with alchemy… but his mind is
so rigid.” Yun Shan darkly and furiously cursed in his heart as he
slowly inhaled a breath of air. He suppressed the churning mood in his
heart before standing up from the chair and slowly walked toward the edge
of the wedding stage. His face was indifferent as he raised his head and
looked at the black-robed, young man in the sky.
“Xiao Yan, I must admit that you have become a lot stronger during
these three years…” Yun Shan gently waved his sleeves as his voice
Xiao Yan glanced at Yun Shan from the sky while he laughed coldly, “Are
you finally unable to remain sitting?”
“However, if this is what you are relying on, this ancestor (refer to
this Dou Zong) shall tell you that you will definitely be unable to
descend the Misty Cloud Mountain alive!” Yun Shan shook his head and
smiled. His expression suddenly turned cold as a pair of hands suddenly
tightened. A majestically frightening aura surged out from his body!
As the frightening aura spread out, the numerous experts under the
wedding stage immediately felt their breathing become dull. They were
shocked to realize that the Dou Qi within their bodies was circulating
somewhat sluggishly in the face of this kind of suppression!
Even the mere aura of an elite Dou Zong was actually this frightening!
Xiao Yan’s expression slowly became solemn as he sensed the majestic
aura that surged out of Yun Shan’s body. This fellow was indeed much
stronger than he was three years ago. It seemed that this time around, it
was really going to be a life and death battle!
“All members of the Misty Cloud Sect listen up, do not leave any
invaders today!” Yun Shan lifted his eyes as his dense, cold voice
slowly reverberated unceasingly through the entire sky.
“I want everyone in the Jia Ma Empire to know that anyone who dares
offend our Misty Cloud Sect will be killed without mercy!”
