Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-732
Nalan Yaran flew in a certain direction out of the city once she left the
Xiao clan. Xiao Yan knit his brows slightly and followed close behind.
Her speed was not reduced even after flying out of the capital. Instead,
she flew in the direction of the Misty Cloud Mountain. Xiao Yan pondered
for a moment when he saw this before continuing to follow. With his
current strength, he need not be worried that Nalan Yanran might play a
trick. Although the latter was also at the peak of the Dou Wang class,
Xiao Yan had the confidence to kill her within ten exchanges if they were
to really fight.
They flew above the enormous plains as though they were chasing after the
stars and moon until the Misty Cloud Mountain, that penetrated the sky,
appeared in his sight. Xiao Yan’s speed was increased. A moment later,
he followed close behind Nalan Yanran and appeared on the Misty Cloud
Xiao Yan’s figure was standing in the air. His gaze swept over the
empty sect below. At this moment, there was not even a little of the
liveliness of the past in the current Misty Cloud Sect. Not even half a
human figure could be seen as the autumn wind blew past. The open ground
was messy and especially desolate-looking.
During the time that Xiao Yan’s gaze swept past this scene, Nalan
Yanran’s gaze was looking below with a startled look. A moment later,
she sighed and immediately could not resist looking at Xiao Yan with a
furious look. She spoke in a deep voice, “Are you only satisfied after
turning things into this manner?”
Xiao Yan’s gaze was cold as he glanced at the somewhat angry Nalan
Yanran. His voice was calm as he said, “Would you still say this if you
saw how my Xiao clan was killed by the Misty Cloud Sect until nothing was
Nalan Yanran paused and didn’t say anything. She heard from Yun Yun
about how bloody and savage the Misty Cloud Sect was. However, when she
saw that the once busy sect became desolate, her heart didn’t feel too
Nalan Yanran’s pupils paused on Xiao Yan’s young, delicate, peaceful
face. A slight ripple appeared in her eyes. He seemed to have become much
more matured and colder compared to three years ago. It is likely that he
had experienced quite a lot during these three years.
Nalan Yanran’s mind was somewhat absent-minded as she looked at the
black-robed, young man in front of her. She suddenly recalled the matter
that changed the relationship between the two of them a couple of years
That day, she relied on the might of the Misty Cloud Sect to ruthlessly
trample on his little remaining pride because his Dou Qi had dissipated.
She was still clearly able to remember her fury and the vicious, cold,
naive words she said back then. However, those naive words from back then
had currently been completely realized.
A bitterness seemed out from the corner of Nalan Yanran’s mouth as she
thought until this point. She mocked herself, “Actually, I currently
feel quite regretful about that matter back then. If I did not head to
the Xiao clan in my willfulness, it is likely that the Xiao clan and the
Misty Cloud Sect would all be fine.”
“Unfortunately, there is no medicine for regret in this world.” Xiao
Yan inhaled a deep breath of air. He immediately waved his hand with some
agitation and said, “Bring me to see Yun Yun. Those matters have
already been dealt with. There is no way to change it no matter what
happens. Hence, there is no need to mention them.”
The bitterness on the corner of Nalan Yanran’s mouth became even more
intense upon seeing this manner of Xiao Yan. The back of her teeth gently
bit her lower red lip. This could be considered a bitter fruit that she
had planted. A bitterness had indeed seeped deep into her heart now that
she had eaten it.
“I am not thinking of getting you to forget about those matters back
then. It is just that I want to say that I, Nalan Yanran, did indeed have
the short-sightedness of a mouse. Given the current situation, I can be
considered to have sought my own bitterness.” Nalan Yanran mocked
herself before immediately turning around and swiftly flying to the
backside of the mountain. “Follow me.”
A glow flickered in Xiao Yan’s eyes as he looked at the graceful figure
in front of him. A moment later, he flapped the fire wings on his back
and swiftly followed.
Xiao Yan followed Nalan Yanran to the back of the mountain and passed
through some dense forest along the way. Finally, they stopped at a
precipitous mountain cliff.
“Teacher is on the top of the cliff. You can go by yourself. After
today, teacher and I will leave the Jia Ma Empire. We might seldom return
in the future.” Nalan Yanran pointed to the top of the cliff and spoke
in a soft voice as her body paused in front of the cliff.
“Leave?” Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately
asked in a deep voice, “Where?”
“We still don’t know. The Dou Qi continent is so huge and I have long
thought of going out to experience it. This time around, I will accompany
teacher and leave. We might well not have gain another chance to meet in
the future.” Nalan Yanran let out a somewhat melancholy sigh. She
immediately turned around and walked down the cliff.
Xiao Yan’s face was slightly solemn as he watched Nalan Yanran’s
back. He clenched his teeth and swiftly rushed to the mountain cliff. A
moment later, he appeared on the cliff. His eyes looked at the edge of
the precipitous mountain cliff. There was a white-clothed woman standing
elegantly at that spot. She had smooth black hair that fell down along
her shoulder. It drifted just as the breeze blew, appearing refined and
“You have arrived.”
The lady spoke in a soft voice. She suddenly let out a distant sigh after
having heard that slight footsteps.
“You are intending to leave the Jia Ma Empire?” Xiao Yan’s
expression was somewhat ugly as he slowly walked forward and questioned
in a deep voice.
The lady slowly turned around and revealed that pretty face. She was
naturally Yun Yun. At this moment, her pretty eyes glanced at Xiao Yan as
she said, “The Misty Cloud Sect has already ceased to exist. There is
no longer any point in me remaining. I have been trapped within this Jia
Ma Empire for so many years and it is good to be able to leave.”
“There are many experts on the Dou Qi continent with a danger that is
beyond compare. As a lady, going out to experience it is no different for
asking to suffer. This Jia Ma Empire may not be as interesting as the
outside world but it can protect you.” Xiao Yan clenched his teeth and
spoke. He studied Yun Yun. She was wearing a dispirited look between her
Yun Yun immediately revealed a smile upon hearing Xiao Yan’s words.
Although her smile was short-lived, it caused one to be dazzled.
“No matter how one puts it, I have the strength of someone at the peak
of the Dou Huang class. How can I be some weak woman without even the
strength to restrain a chicken.” Yun Yun shook her head slightly. Her
bright eyes looked at Xiao Yan as she softly said, “You have already
turned the Misty Cloud Sect into this manner. I know that you are doing
this for revenge after the Misty Cloud Sect attempted to exterminate your
Xiao clan. The disbanding of the Misty Cloud Sect now can be considered
retribution. I do not hate you even though teacher has died in your
“Then why are you still leaving?” Xiao Yan knit his brows. He
hesitated a little before speaking, “I am currently lacking some
powerful experts beside me. If you really do not hate me, you can stay
behind and help me.”
The glow in her bright pupils started intently at Xiao Yan. It only
turned away after the latter’s face turned slightly red. Yun Yun’s
voice was gentle as she spoke, “Indeed, I do not hate you. However, I
am ultimately the Sect Leader of the Misty Cloud Sect… even though the
Misty Cloud Sect is already non-existent.”
Xiao Yan clenched his fist tight. A fury surfaced within his eyes. He
understood Yun Yun’s meaning. She did indeed not hate him for
destroying the Misty Cloud Sect. However, due to her unique status, she
could not remain by his side.
“Given my status and position, I should be doing my best to take
revenge. However, you should know that even if I have that ability, I do
not have the heart to act… since this is the case, it is best to
leave.” Yun Yun’s voice was despondent as she responded.
Xiao Yan’s expression was dark. This woman was always so stubborn!
“I heard that you are intending to establish a faction within the Jia
Ma Empire. What the Misty Cloud Sect has collected over the many years is
in here. It no longer has much use to me now. I shall give it to you.”
Yun Yun smiled as she looked at Xiao Yan’s expression. She slowly
stepped forward, carrying a fragrant wind. She immediately placed that
dark-green ring in Xiao Yan’s hand.
Xiao Yan held the storage ring tightly. His gaze stared intently at this
woman who had left him a deep memory during the first time that he had
left to train. He asked in a deep voice, “Must you leave?”
Yun Yun looked at the delicate, handsome, young face from close
proximity. A gentleness surfaced within her eyes. There was a little less
tenderness and more maturity within it compared to three years ago.
“Little fellow, you really have grown up. Ke ke, now that the Misty
Cloud Sect has turned into this manner, I also wish to go out and take a
walk around. Perhaps I will return once again when I manage to settle the
matter in my heart. At that time, it is likely that I will not reject you
if you still wish for me to stay and help you.” Yun Yun slowly extended
her delicate hand and gently fondled Xiao Yan’s face while she spoke in
a gentle voice.
Xiao Yan’s face also gradually turned gentler as he sensed the soft
touch that was transmitted from her hand. It was not like he did not have
the slightest feeling toward this woman in front of him.
“Sometimes, I think that if you were a little bolder in the mountain
cave back then and ignored my threats, now might…” Yun Yun suddenly
laughed softly as her eyes stared at Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan suddenly extended his hand as his eyes flickered. He hugged that
delicate waist and whispered, “Are you implying something?”
A faint bright-redness surfaced on Yun Yun’s pale snow-like face upon
being forcefully hugged by Xiao Yan. She gently struggled for a moment
but she was hugged even more tightly by Xiao Yan.
Yun Yun could only give up her struggle after a futile attempt to break
away. She flipped her hand and a deep-blue inner vest appeared in her
hand. She gently pressed the vest against Xiao Yan’s chest and softly
spoke, “This is the first thing that I gave you. Originally, it was
tattered but I have carefully mended it. Even though it no longer has
much use to you now, you can still carefully hold on to it. Otherwise,
don’t blame me for falling out with you should you be unable to take it
out when I return to the Jia Ma Empire in the future.”
Xiao Yan was startled as he looked at the vest pressed against his chest.
The events surrounding her in the past also began to flash one at a time
in Xiao Yan’s head in a torrent-like manner. His gaze was slightly
lowered as he looked at the gentle-feeling that was contained in her
pretty moving eyes. An impulse surged within his heart. He forcefully
held the latter’s skinny snow-white chin. After which, his mouth was
imprinted on her tender, beautiful dripping-red lips.
Yun Yun only had the time to emit a soft hoot upon being sneakily
attacked by Xiao Yan before she was stopped. Her delicate hand knocked
against the front of his chest but it was soft and weak. There was not
even the slightest force within it.
“Forget it. In any case, I am about to leave. I shall just do as you
want for once…” Yun Yun softly sighed in her heart as she shut her
eyes. Her tightly closed mouth was slowly opened and allowed the other
party’s domineering attack in.
A man and woman were in a tight embrace on the cliff of a mountain. They
were emitting a feeling that would cause one’s heart to feel a fiery

Nalan Yanran’s delicate hand gently leaned against the rock wall on one
side of the mountain cliff. Her gaze was complicated as she looked at the
man and woman who were hugging in the distance. A moment later, she let
out a smile of melancholy as she quietly withdrew.
