Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-739
This time around, Xiao Yan did not drag things out. After accounting to
Xiao Ding and Xiao Li about this matter, he found Zi Yan in the mansion
and brought her along as he quietly left.
Xiao Yan was bringing Zi Yan along and was just about to leave the empire
quickly using his Dou Qi wings to travel when Zi Yan by his side pulled
his sleeve. Her little hand pointed in front of them and laughed with a
clear voice, “Cai Lin jie (older sister) is there.”
Xiao Yan was immediately startled when he heard these words. He hurriedly
threw his gaze in the direction she pointed and did indeed see Medusa’s
bewitching figure leaning lazily on a tree trunk. Her pretty eyes were
starting at the two of them.
“Why are you here?” Xiao Yan asked in surprised.
“Don’t think that you can bring Zi Yan away by yourself. I am worried
about her following you.” Medusa faintly replied. She immediately
walked over with slow footsteps and lifted Zi Yan up while ignoring Xiao
Yan’s stunned eyes.
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head when he saw this. He could only say,
“Alright, you can follow. I am going to undertake a retreat and not to
have fun. The reason I am bringing Zi Yan along is also because she will
require an enormous amount of energy in order for her to advance and the
place that I am heading to is very suitable for her.”
While he spoke in this manner with his mouth, Xiao Yan’s shoulders
shook, and his jade-green fire wings slowly extended out. Finally, they
transformed into beautiful fire wings that were over ten feet long.
“You can bring Zi Yan along and follow me.” Xiao Yan spoke to Medusa
before flapping his wings. His body rose to the sky before flying toward
the distant Magical Beast Mountain Range.
Medusa looked at Xiao Yan’s helpless figure from behind and a faint arc
that could hardly be sensed was lifted on her cold beautiful face. She
immediately pulled Zi Yan as her body flashed and appeared in the sky.
Her toes pressed on the empty space and swiftly flew in the direction of
Xiao Yan had took a map of the Jia Ma Empire when he left. He followed
the route in his memory and swiftly flew to northwestern side of the
Back then, that little mountain valley was located deep in the
northwestern part of the Magical Beast Mountain Range. That place was
extremely far from the empire. An ordinary flying beast or a horse
carriage would have at least taken five or six days before they could
reach the place they were headed to. However, the current Xiao Yan was no
longer that small Dou Zhe from back then. With his current speed, he
would need less than a day to move anywhere in the Jia Ma Empire.
Using the route indicated by the map, Xiao Yan and the other two
continued hurrying through their journey for half a day. They arrived at
a mountain peak that was near the Magical Beast Mountain Range in the
Their bodies slowly landed from the sky. Xiao Yan stood on the mountain
peak. His eyes carried a thread of memory as he studied the land that was
somewhat familiar. He could still remember that it was in this place that
he had once been chased by a mercenary company called the Wolf Head until
he had fled deep into the mountain range. It was there that he had first
met Yun Yun, who had been using the name Yun Zhi at the time…
Xiao Yan descended into his memories. Only after a long while did he
softly sigh. A couple of years had past. It truly was a situation where
the physical aspects were similar but the people had completely changed.
Xiao Yan’s gaze followed the mountain peak and shifted down. Finally,
it paused on the little town that was seated at the foot of the mountain.
He could still remember that this little town was named Qingshan Town. It
was his first training spot after he had left Wu Tan City back then.
Here, he had befriended the first friend of his life, the kind girl who
was called Little Fairy Doctor…
hat white-dressed girl, who was gently sitting in a medicinal shop
healing those injured mercenaries, flashed across Xiao Yan’s head. He
exhaled his breath. Nearly six to seven years had past and he did not
know how she was currently doing. Did her ‘Woeful Poison Body’ that
even Yao Lao was somewhat afraid of undergo an outburst? Xiao Yan felt
heartache as he recalled that kind girl who had to consume poison
everyday to maintain her body’s functions.
Numerous emotions flashed across Xiao Yan’s heart. A moment later, they
transformed into a soft sigh that was emitted from Xiao Yan’s mouth. He
looked toward Medusa and Zi Yan by his side. He smiled and said,
“Let’s go. First, head to the little town…” His body moved after
saying this and became like a falling leaf in a breeze as it gently
rushed down. Medusa and Zi Yan followed close behind.
Given the speed of the few people, they appeared in the little town after
a couple of breaths. They looked at the somewhat ancient words on the
entrance of the small town that still existed. Xiao Yan mind was
momentarily a little absent-minded as he muttered, “Qingshan town, it
has been a long time since I last saw you…”
A few years ago, a young man had left his clan to train. He had
difficulty walking while carrying that enormous black ruler on his back.
He had arrived at this place with a head covered with perspiration. That
somewhat tender face revealed a smile as though he had unloaded a heavy
burden when he looked at the small town.
“This place is the first place I came to when I was training back then.
The me then was merely a little fellow who had just advanced to the Dou
Zhe class…” Xiao Yan smiled slightly and spoke to the two people
Zi Yan and Medusa were startled when they heard this. They secretly
laughed, “It is unexpected that after having not come here a few years
that the little fellow who was a Dou Zhe back then has already become
this strong. Do you have the feeling of the physical objects remaining
the same but the people being different?”
Xiao Yan smiled and patted Zi Yan’s head. He lifted his head and looked
in all directions. The current size of Qingshan Town was much larger
compared to what it was back then. Even the flow of people had become
many times greater than what it was. There were some passersby and
mercenaries who were preparing to enter the Magical Beast Mountain Range
to hunt for Magical Beasts passing by this entrance of this small town.
This human flow would involuntarily slow their footsteps when they passed
by Xiao Yan and the other two. Of course, the main reason for them to
shorten their strides was naturally not because of Xiao Yan but instead
because of Medusa and Zi Yan by his side.
There were hardly any females whom Xiao Yan had met that could compare
with Medusa in terms of beauty. This was especially true combined with
her ice-cold and noble demeanor that was faintly present. It caused
people’s eyes to involuntarily shoot over. Moreover, due to her being
Medusa, her entire body was emitting a kind of bewitching allure that
caused one to become a moth that leaped uncontrollably into a flame
despite clearly knowing that she was a beautiful female snake who knew
how to eat humans.
Zi Yan currently still possessed the appearance of a little girl, her
jade-carving-like appearance was extremely cute. Her gem-like eyes
flashed repeatedly and gave one the feeling of liking her too much to let
go. This point could be clearly identified from Medusa’s attitude
Of course, those numerous gazes that looked at the two woman would still
be thrown toward the black-robed, young man who stood between them. Some
of the mercenaries whose body were covered with muscles would curl their
mouths upon seeing the other party’s skinny figure. They would quietly
grumble about how this skinny, weak guy would have such luck with women.
Medusa’s coldness also attracted quite a lot of attention. Perhaps it
was because these people had frequently licked blood from their blades
but these mercenaries’ instincts told them that this woman was somewhat
frightening despite the heat that was revealed in their eyes…
Their instincts were extremely accurate. This was because Medusa’s
pretty eyebrows had already become slightly vertical under the focus of
the many eyes. Seven colored energy was partially visible on her hand
under her sleeves.
“Forget it…” Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head when he sensed the
slight energy fluctuation from beside him. The killing aura of this woman
was too strong.
Medusa hesitated for a moment after hearing Xiao Yan’s words. Although
she did not say anything, the energy on her hands had been quietly
Xiao Yan walked into the small town. The road that was paved with rock
fragments caused Xiao Yan’s mood to be quietly relaxed. He had not felt
such a feeling in a long time. After he had left the Jia Ma Empire, he
had been living by utilizing every second as he raced against time. He
had trained all day and night.
Xiao Yan walked an entire street before turning around once again. A long
while later, he slowly paused his footsteps outside an enormous medicinal
shop. His gaze was absent-minded as he looked at the scene that was still
somewhat familiar. Back then, he had met the Little Fairy Doctor for the
first time in this shop. The medicinal shop was currently even larger
than back then, but it lacked that gentle smile to brighten the place.
Xiao Yan let out a soft sigh. He suddenly felt a feeling of melancholy.
With a wave of his hand, he turned his head and spoke to the two people
beside him, “Forget it, let’s leave. We will enter the Magical Beast
Mountain Range today.”
Medusa and Zi Yan did not reveal any other opinions as they nodded.
Xiao Yan did not procrastinate when he saw this. He turned around and
walked toward the path that lead out of the small town and headed into
the Magical Beast Mountain Range.
However, Xiao Yan had just turned his body when chaos suddenly ensued on
a path not far away. Two human figures immediately rushed into the crowd
and fled in panic. When the two human figures rushed past the street, a
couple of human figures came rushing down from a building beside them and
blocked the both of them.
“Ha ha, you are thinking of fleeing? Today, not a single person of your
‘Bloody Battle Mercenary Company’ will be able to flee!” A
middle-aged man,who had a scar on his face, slowly walked forward, and
gave a savage smile to the man and woman who were blocked by him.
The two people who were surrounded were a man and a woman. The man was a
middle-aged person with a strong build. His calm face currently held a
bitterness. The woman by his side was quite young. Her lovely figure was
slim and her appearance was also quite beautiful. However, that lovely
face was unusually white at this moment.
“You should hurry and leave. I will stop them!” The middle-aged
man’s gaze stared intently at that man with the scar and sternly cried
out, “Han Rui, our ‘Bloody Battle Mercenary Company’ has already
given up most of the territory in Qingshan to you. Why must your Snake
Nest Mercenary Company exterminate us? Aren’t you too arrogant even if
you have the He clan supporting you?”
“What can you do if we are arrogant? The chief has said that we will
not leave even a single person in the ‘Bloody Battle Mercenary
Company’ alive! If you are wise, you will hand over that little girl as
soon as possible. The chief has decided to take her body tonight.” The
man with the scar let out a savage smile as he spoke.
“Dream on!” The middle-aged man cried out angrily. However, he turned
around and slammed his palm onto the woman’s body. A force pushed her
back by over ten meters. “Ling Er, flee! Enter the Magical Beast
The man with the scar coldly watched the actions of the middle-aged man
as he let out a cold laugh. He waved his hand. “Kill him!”
A couple of human figures immediately gave an affirmative response when
they heard the order. They immediately brandished their weapons and
charged at the middle-age man. That man with the scar, on the other hand,
strode toward the woman with a pale, pretty face. The corner of his mouth
contained a lewd smile.
Xiao Yan watched this sudden unexpected scene from the end of the street.
Originally, he was not the least bit interested in this kind of matter
where people killed each other for revenge. However, the ‘Bloody Battle
Mercenary Company’ that the man with the scar mentioned had brought
back some of his memories. His gaze studied that middle-aged man and the
woman. He knit his brows slightly. Ling Er?
During the time that Xiao Yan was deep in thought, the middle-aged man,
who was originally injured, was no match for an attack from a couple of
opponents. Finally, he was forced back with a palm strike and a mouthful
of blood was spat out. He turned his head and looked at the man with a
scar who was walking toward the woman with a lewd smile. A tragic
laughter was emitted as despair surfaced in his eyes.
“Uncle Ka Gang!” The woman who called Ling Er finally could not
control herself as she cried out with tears when she saw the middle-aged
person being wounded.
Xiao Yan, who was at the end of the street, let out a soft sigh when he
heard her cry. He finally managed to remember that accidental encounter
in the Magical Beast Mountain Range back then.
Although there were quite a number of people observing the scene that was
happening on the street, there was not a single person who dared
intervene. Clearly, the people here were extremely afraid of the people
backing up the man with the scar.
That man with the scar also appeared to be aware of this point. Hence, he
was unafraid when he acted. His arrogant ear-piercing laughter caused
quite a number of people to frown.
“Hee hee, it is useless no matter how you shout. Miss Ling Er,
obediently return with me. After our chief has enough fun with you, I
will serve you properly…” The man with a scar let out an obscene
laugh. His large hand grabbed at the woman. At this moment, the latter
appeared to be without any strength to retaliate. Hence, she could only
watch the large hand come closer. Her eyes revealed a despair and
“Bastard! You are worse than even an animal. A beast…” The
middle-aged man who was called Ka Gang watched the actions of the scarred
man and angrily scolded. However, his curse had just sounded when a human
figure stomped his foot against Ka Gang’s chest and kicked him to the
ground, causing him to spit out a mouthful of blood once again.
The scarred man coldly smiled as he looked at Ka Gang. His hand was
suddenly extended and grabbed at the woman in front of him.
However, his body strangely paused when his hand was still half a foot
from the woman. A powerful force rushed over and violently smashed into
“Grug! Grug! Grug… grug… grug…”
The sudden heavy blow caused the scarred man’s expression to turn pale.
A mouthful of fresh blood was spat to the sky and his body fell like a
dead dog. It also rubbed against the street for over ten meters before
slowly coming to a stop.
This kind of unexpected turn of events caused the street to instantly
become quiet. A countless number of people were stunned as they looked at
the man with a scar who had suddenly become a dead dog. Their minds had
difficulty coming to terms with the change.
The lovely lady who was called Ling Er also opened her small mouth and
looked at the scarred man who was repeatedly moaning on the ground. A
moment later, she seemed to have sensed something as she suddenly turned
her head. A black robe slowly imprinted itself in her eyes.
