Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-736
Jia Xing Tian softly uttered the name in his mouth. His eyes moved to
Xiao Yan by the side and laughed, “Good name. It is likely that the
position of this Yan Alliance in the future will far surpass the Misty
Cloud Sect. Hopefully, there will be a seat for the Jia Ma Empire in the
northwestern region in the future.”
XIao Yan nodded with a smile and softly replied, “Xiao Yan will
naturally do my best.”
“Ke ke, since this alliance has been established, we will naturally
need a leader who will lead everyone…” Fa Ma stood up and smiled as
he said, “It seems that this position will definitely belong to little
friend Xiao Yan.”
Mu Chen, Nalan Jie, and the others hurriedly voiced their agreement after
hearing Fa Ma’s words. After Xiao Yan had spent so much time and effort
to establish a faction, these people would naturally not naively think
that he was impartial. The position of the Alliance Chief was naturally
encapsulated within it. Naturally, there would not be anyone who would
foolishly voice any opposition in this kind of situation.
Xiao Yan smiled in the face of this agreement. He did not purposefully
put up an act to decline it. Instead, he got up and laughed, “The Yan
Alliance does not belong to Xiao Yan alone. Its future achievements still
need to rely on all the founding members seated here!”
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded upon seeing that everything was progressing as
he had expected. He waved his hand and the female servants by the side
served some wine that had already been poured in front of everyone.
“The formation of the alliance today can be considered a big matter.
Let’s all have a drink for the Yan Alliance!” Xiao Ding raised his
wine cup and laughed.
“Ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, ha ha. Cheers! Cheers! Cheers!”
The largest faction within the Jia Ma Empire was finally established amid
the laughter in the hall. Perhaps in a short while, this new faction
would be mentioned by the mouths of every single person from the Jia Ma
Empire. Many people would know that this faction would be the replacement
of the Misty Cloud Sect!
Whether this replacement would walk even further than the Misty Cloud
Sect would be determined by what abilities its leader possessed!
Everyone left one after another after the discussion in the hall was
completed. The serious atmosphere of the hall slowly became a relaxing
Xiao Yan also let out a long breath when he saw the last person out of
the Xiao Mansion. He sat in his chair and sighed, “I have finally
settled this. In the future, our Xiao clan can be considered to have a
protection that is reassuring.”
“Given your current strength, you can just forcefully order them to
join. Yet you want to make it this troublesome. You really are seeking
your own bitterness.” Queen Medusa who had been quiet until this moment
finally glanced at Xiao Yan and coldly spoke.
Xiao Yan rolled his eyes upon hearing this. He was too lazy to be
bothered reasoning with her. In the heart of this vicious woman, strength
was the greatest, no matter what kind of topic it was.
“The Yan Alliance involves all of the strongest factions within the
empire after it has just been established. Its potential is
extraordinary. In the future, I will make the information network of the
Yan Alliance spread over every single corner of the empire. At that time,
anyone who is against our Xiao clan will enter into our ears. Even if
that ‘Hall of Souls’ wants to touch the members of our Xiao clan
again, it would no longer be as easy as it was in the past.” Xiao Ding
ignored the argument between the two as he laughed faintly and spoke.
“Aren’t we giving them too much authority in this Yan Alliance? The
Elder’s Council can decide the Alliance Chief’s will. This might be a
lot of trouble if it is not handled well in the future.” Xiao Li knit
his brows and gave his input.
“Relax, I am only doing this to stabilize their hearts. Once more time
passes and the concept of their clans fade in their hearts, they will
naturally begin to place the alliance as the priority. Moreover, I will
also quietly use some tactics to cause most of the people in our
Elder’s Council to be made up of people from our Xiao clan and those
that support our Xiao clan. In the future, there will definitely be no
one interfering with any decision that third brother makes.” Xiao Ding
knocked his hand against his legs and carelessly laughed.
Xiao Yan smiled. He stretched his lazy waist and said, “Now that the
alliance has been successfully established, I will hand the subsequent
matters to big brother and second brother to settle. I am not very good
“You brat…” Xiao Ding helplessly shook his head when he saw that
XIao Yan had already began to shirk his responsibilities.
“That’s right, second brother, have you found all the medicinal
ingredients that I got you to look for?” Xiao Yan appeared to have
suddenly recalled something as he inquired.
“The Primer clan has managed to dispatch the list of these medicinal
ingredients to all its auction houses. They have gathered all the
medicinal ingredients but there is only enough to refine two medicinal
pills. If you fail, it is likely that they will need to spend two months
in order to continue gathering all of them. Old Hai said that these
medicinal ingredients were far too rare. Even the Primer clan does not
keep much of them around.” Xiao Li was startled when he heard the
question. His gaze swept over Xiao Ding without leaving a trace as he
“Two sets huh.., it should be enough to refine one pill. You should
deliver the medicinal ingredients to my chamber later.” Xiao Yan
hesitated for a moment. Two sets of medicinal ingredients was indeed a
little risky. However, the little life that Xiao Li currently had left
did not allow him to delay any longer. Hence, Xiao Yan immediately opened
his mouth to reply.
Xiao Li slightly nodded.
No doubt was aroused in Xiao Ding’s heart when the two of them were
discussing the medicinal ingredients. After all, it was extremely natural
for Xiao Yan to refine medicinal pills since he was an alchemist. Hence,
their eyes glanced at the pretty, cold face of Medusa by the side after
the two of them finished their conversation. Xiao Ding immediately gave
Xiao Li a look before having him push his wheelchair out of the hall.
They looked… looked…
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head when he saw the actions of the two of
them. He immediately threw his gaze toward Medusa. After being silent for
a moment, he softly said, “Thank you very much.”
This thanks was naturally because she was willing to come and hold the
fort for him. Medusa was the best choice if he wanted to deter and shake
those old fellows. However, her character was too cold. Xiao Yan was also
prepared to be rejected when he invited her to help. He did not expect
that the other party would agree in such a crisp fashion.
“I only wanted to come and kill. Unfortunately, things did not go as I
hoped.” Medusa merely responded faintly in the face of Xiao Yan’s
thanks. However, even she might have sensed her ice-cold pupils become a
little gentler at this moment.
“Xiao Yan, the Yaowan that you have given me has long been finished.
Now that your injuries have completely recovered, you should hurry and
refine some more for me.” Zi Yan, who had been following beside Medusa
Xiao Yan smiled as he stepped forward and gently rubbed Zi Yan’s head.
He agreed with a faint grin, “Alright, I will refine for you in awhile,
you little greedy fellow.”
“You should be quick. I can sense that I seemed to be about to become
stronger again and require a large amount of energy. Otherwise, I am
about to fall into a slumber.” Zi Yan knit her little brows. Ever since
she had blocked that blow from Protector Wu on the Misty Cloud Mountain,
she faintly began to feel a strange feeling. Hence, she was anxiously in
need of a large amount of energy.
Xiao Yan and Medusa were startled when they heard this. Their eyes
immediately revealed a curious glow as they looked at Zi Yan. A moment
later, they exchanged looks with one another and said in surprise, “It
seems that she is about to advance?”
Xiao Yan mused for a moment. Zi Yan was at the Dou Wang class when he had
first met her in the Inner Academy back then. According to the rank of a
Magical Beast, it was only natural for a rank 5 Magical Beast to advance
after having eaten so many natural treasures.
“The advancement of a Magical Beast will require an unusually large
amount of energy. Hence, an ordinary Magical Beast that advances would
first find various kinds of natural treasures. However, this girl has
been eating countless numbers of treasures for so many years and only
advanced now. It seems that the energy she needs to advance is indeed
massive. I really don’t know what kind of being she is…” Medusa’s
tone also carried some surprise. It was also the first time that she had
seen a Magical Beast require such a large amount of energy to advance.
Normally speaking, the greater the energy needed during the advancement,
the stronger the Magical Beast. However, someone like Zi Yan… seemed to
require so much that it was a little overboard.
“You can rest assured that I will help her obtain it no matter how
great the amount of energy she requires. This little fellow has followed
me and run out of the Inner Academy. I cannot allow her to be injured.
Otherwise, I would have difficulty accounting to First Elder Su Qin in
the future.” Xiao Yan pinched Zi Yan’s tender jade-like little face.
He could not help but laugh gently when he saw the cute manner of the
latter in which she repeatedly swung her face to avoid his hand.
Medusa was also startled when she saw the gentleness that Xiao Yan
displayed at this moment. She immediately said in a faint manner, “This
little fellow is very close to me. I will not agree even if you allow her
to be injured.”
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head upon seeing Medusa appeared to be
protecting the child. He seemed to have recalled something as he raised
his eyes and looked at Medusa. He softly said, “Our one year agreement
will arrive after one to two months.”
Medusa’s hand that was helping comb Zi Yan’s purple hair stilled. Her
pretty face, that was showing signs of a gentleness earlier, slowly
turned icy-cold. Those eyes that were filled with a bewitching charm
glanced at Xiao Yan. Her voice was indifferent as she said, “Don’t
you know that you will definitely be the first person to die in my hands
once I consume the ‘Soul Recovery Pill’? Or do you think that the
current you can contend with me?”
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly and said, “I am naturally aware of this.
However, there is an agreement and I will naturally not break the
agreement. Moreover, from the way you are gathering medicinal ingredients
from all over the place, it seems that you are also really looking
forward to it. Don’t tell me that I can actually ignore it?”
Medusa’s eyes were ice-cold as she glanced at Xiao Yan. She immediately
pulled Zi Yan’s little hands, turned her body and walked out of the
hall. Only when she reach the doorway did she pause her footsteps and
speak in a faint voice, “Those medicinal ingredients have all been
eaten by Zi Yan. If you are really anxious to refine the medicinal
ingredients, there is no need to go to the trouble. You can just tell me
and I will strike you.”
“Of course, don’t think that this Queen has a change of heart. It is
just that I wish to allow you to live for a little longer.”
A stunned look appeared in Xiao Yan’s eyes after he heard Queen Medusa
throw these words out before leaving the hall. A strange expression
covered his face.
