Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-740
Ling Er’s gaze paused momentarily on the black robe before swiftly
shifting up. A young, handsome face that was covered with a calm
expression appeared in her sight.
She opened her sleek, red, small mouth as she looked at the young face,
feeling somewhat absent-minded. For some unknown reason, she repeatedly
felt that she seemed acquainted with this face. However, she was still
unable to think of where she had seen it no matter how she recalled at
Ka Gang, who was on the ground after being beaten, took the opportunity
to climb to his feet. He ignored the trace of blood on the corner of his
mouth and charged forward to protect Ling Er. He raised his head and
spoke with gratitude to the black-robed, young man in front of him,
“Mister, thank you very much for rescuing us!”
Many people on the street had also recovered at this moment. Their gazes
were shocked as they looked at this black-robed, young man who appeared
quite young. Although they were very surprised that he was able to force
back the scarred man, who was a three star Dou Shi, with a strike, many
people revealed pitiful gazes toward him. Did this little, young fellow
not know just how arrogant and despotic the Snake Nest Mercenary Company
was in the Qingshan Town? With the support of the He clan from the Black
Rock City, no one within a five hundred kilometer radius of the Magical
Beast Mountain Range dared to offend the Snake Nest Mercenary Company. It
was for no reason other than this He clan possessed an expert who was a
genuine Dou Wang!
The few men who were clearly people from the Snake Nest Mercenary Company
hurriedly ran to help the man with the blade scar up since he was
injured. After which, many pairs of vicious gazes were thrown toward the
black-robed, young man.
“ Pooh!” The scarred man stood up with great difficulty. His face was
pale as he spat out the fresh blood in his mouth. His gaze was vicious as
he looked at Xiao Yan’s calm face. He laughed furiously, “Good little
fellow, you are really bold. You actually dare to offend our Snake Nest
Mercenary Company in Qingshan Town? Do you not know that our Company
Leader is the son-in-law of the He clan?”
Xiao Yan faintly glanced at the scarred man and shook his head. He had
really not heard of the so-called He clan.
“This sir, Ka Gang is extremely grateful to you for your favor.
However, you should try to leave as soon as possible. Once the experts
from the Snake Nest Mercenary Company arrive, it will be difficult for
you to leave.” Ka Gang sighed softly as he looked at the vicious gaze
of the scarred man. He pushed Ling Er toward Xiao Yan and softly begged,
“Mister, please bring Ling Er and leave Qingshan. If you feel that it
is troublesome, you can get her to leave after you exit the small town. I
will stop them!”
“I won’t go! If you are going to die, let’s all die together. In
any case, the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company will definitely be unable
to live beyond today. There is no meaning to me living if that is the
case.” Ling Er did not move when she heard this. She simply clenched
her teeth and cried.
“You…” Ka Gang became furious. However, he could only sigh
dispiritedly when he saw the tragic face of Ling Er. He waved his hand
and said, “Forget it, forget it, you should hold the dagger under your
sleeves properly. If you are captured, you can commit suicide to avoid
Xiao Yan by the side looked at these two people while feeling neither
able to laugh nor cry. He shook his head and laughed softly, “Uncle Ka
Gang, you can be reassured that if I wish to protect the two of you
today, no one in this Jia Ma Empire will dare touch you.”
Ka Gang was startled in the face of Xiao Yan’s somewhat familiar form
of address. He bitterly laughed, “I appreciate mister’s good
intention. However, the Snake Nest Mercenary Company is not something
that you can contend with. Ling Er and I will delay them. You should
“Hee hee, leave? You want to leave after wounding your grandpa? How
could there be such a nice thing?” A savage smile immediately formed on
the scarred man’s face on the other side. His hand swiftly took out a
fire cylinder from his chest pocket. After which, he pulled at it and a
signal flew to the sky before exploding.
TL: Calling oneself another person’s grandfather is a form of insult
“All the exits in Qingshan Town have been sealed by my Snake Nest
Mercenary Company. Where can all of you go to?” That scarred man looked
at Ka Gang and Ling Er whose faces instantly turned pale. The sinister
smile on his face grew even wider. With a wave of his hand, he cried out
furiously, “Kill everyone other than that girl.”
Over a dozen people behind that scarred man immediately spread out upon
hearing the order. They drew their sharp weapons from their waists and
covered them with a thin layer of Dou Qi. After which, they looked at
Xiao Yan with ill intent.
Xiao Yan was expressionless as he watched the ten plus people that had
swiftly charged over. He slowly stepped forward and spoke in a calm
voice, “Anyone who takes another step forward will die!”
These words of Xiao Yan ended up with only the cold laughter of the ten
plus people. It was naturally impossible to stop the latter’s footsteps
by even a little.
Xiao Yan lowered his eyes when he saw this. A faint fierce glow flashed
across them. An invisible flame quietly rose on the tip of his finger.

A strange scene quietly appeared on the street the moment the flame
appeared. All one could see was that the bodies of those ten plus
individuals, who were charging toward Xiao Yan, suddenly stiffened.
Immediately, they emitted a puff sound in front of the many stunned gazes
from around and without any warning… transformed into black ashes that
scattered over the ground!
The somewhat noisy street had suddenly become quiet at this moment.
Everyone widened their eyes and stared at the large pile of black ashes
that appeared on the ground in a terrified manner. Some people had merely
blinked their eyes but when they opened them once again, they could only
watch people, who had been perfectly normal a moment ago, transforming
into a pile of ashes in front of their eyes…
This strange scene caused a chill to appear from deep within the hearts
of a countless number of people. Although the hot sun was currently in
the sky, cold sweat repeatedly rolled down their forehead.
The mouth of that scarred man who had a fierce aura had opened as wide as
a duck’s egg at this moment. His eyes were filled with shock. It was a
long while later before he recovered. His body hurriedly moved back. He
staggered and fell onto the ground as he spoke in shock, “You… what
are you doing?”
When Xiao Yan had acted a moment earlier, he had failed to sense even the
slightest ripple of Dou Qi. Yet, those ten plus people had bizarrely
turned into black ashes.
With the emission of the scarred man’s shocked voice, Ka Gang and Ling
Er also recovered from their shock. They looked at the black-robed, young
man in front of them and a wild joy gradually surfaced in their eyes. It
was unexpected that this young man actually possessed such a frightening
strength. It seemed that they had regained the hope of being rescued.
Xiao Yan’s gaze indifferently looked at the scarred man who was
staggering back. His hand was slowly lifted as it pointed toward the
latter from a distance. The invisible flame suddenly flashed and appeared
in his palm.
Another deep muffled sound appeared. The scarred man had yet to reveal
even the slightest expression when the fierce heart flame that had
appeared within his body incinerated him into a pile of black ashes.
Everyone on the street involuntarily inhaled a breath of cold air as they
watched the scarred man also transform into ashes. Their gazes were
appalled as they looked at Xiao Yan while their feet involuntarily took a
couple of steps back. From the looks of it, they seemed to be afraid that
Xiao Yan would suddenly point that finger of a grim reaper toward them.
Only at this moment did they understand that this young person was not
trying to act strong as he stepped forward but he truly possessed the
qualification and strength to look down on the Snake Nest Mercenary
Xiao Yan gently patted his hands on each other after randomly finishing
off these people. There was not much fluctuation within his gaze despite
having taken over a dozen lives. Given the wicked and fierce aura of
these people, it was obvious that they were definitely not good people.
It was nothing if he killed them. He would not feel the slightest burden.
Xiao Yan turned his head and looked at Ka Gang and Ling Er. He laughed
softly and slowly said, “Uncle Ka Gang, it has been so many years since
we have seen each other. It is unexpected that you are still in this
small Qingshan Town.”
Ka Gang, whose gaze was originally filled with respect and fear, was
immediately stunned when he heard these words from Xiao Yan. He carefully
studied the latter’s face. His heart, however, was muttering about when
he had become acquainted with such a strong person.
Ling Er by the side was staring intently at that face. She knew she had
met him before while Ka Gang was feeling uncertain. She suddenly muttered
softly a moment later, “Uncle Ka Gang, he seems to be somewhat similar
to Xiao Yan who had destroyed the Wolf Head Mercenary Company a couple of
Ka Gang’s body suddenly shook when he heard Ling Er’s words. His body
suddenly trembled as he looked at Xiao Yan with disbelief. The memory
that was buried deep under the years was swiftly found. Finally, the
young man’s somewhat tender face, whom he had met once back then,
slowly matched up with the Xiao Yan in front of him.
“Little brother Xiao Yan… is it really you?” Ka Gang cried out
involuntarily while the shock in his eyes became denser. The Xiao Yan
back then was merely a Dou Zhe who had not even reached the Dou Shi
class. Yet, now, he was able to turn over a dozen Dou Zhe and a Dou Shi
into ashes by raising his hand. How could that tender, young man compare
with this demeanor of an expert?
Xiao Yan smiled slightly and nodded.
Ka Gang’s face was instantly filled with joy when he saw Xiao Yan nod
his head. He immediately hesitated a little before clenching his teeth
abruptly as he knelt down. He begged, “Brother Xiao Yan, the Bloody
Battle Mercenary Company has met with a great disaster. I beg you to lend
a hand and rescue it. Ka Gang is willing to do anything you say after it
Ling Er was also biting her red lips gently and looking at Xiao Yan from
behind Ka Gang. Emotions were churning within her heart. Who could have
imagined that the young man, whom she had repeatedly ridiculed due to her
immaturity, was actually currently in possession of such a terrifying
Ling Er also hurriedly knelt down as this thought churned in her heart.
If she wanted to rescue the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company, she could
only rely on this young man in front of her.
“His name is similar to the chief of the ‘Yan Alliance’ that has
recently spread and caused an uproar. However, it is rumored that the
chief of the ‘Yan Alliance’ holds a strength that can fight with a
legendary elite Dou Zong. Looks like it is only a situation where their
names are similar…” Ling Er’s gaze flickered while she softly spoke
in her heart. There should be at least a few hundred if not thousands of
people with the name Xiao Yan in the enormous Jia Ma Empire. Moreover,
the chief of the Yan Alliance was far too glaring. Even she did not dare
to think along that line. She only thought that their names were similar.
Xiao Yan waved his sleeves and a gentle force lifted the two people to
their feet. He softly asked, “Is it that Snake Nest Mercenary Company?
What is their strength like?”
Ka Gang hurriedly nodded when he heard this. He quickly replied, “Their
Company’s leader is a six star expert Dou Ling with an extremely great
strength. No one could match him within the entire Qingshan Town. I
wonder if little brother Xiao Yan can…”
“Six star Dou Ling huh…” Xiao Yan mused for a moment before he
immediately laughed, “Uncle Ka Gang, I still need to enter the Magical
Beast Mountain Range to do something during this trip of mine. Perhaps I
won’t be able to remain for too long here…”
Ka Gang’s expression immediately became gloomy when he heard Xiao
Yan’s words. His body appeared to have all of its energy sucked out
from it. Ling Er behind him also clenched her hand tightly. She miserably
mocked herself. Even though that person had some friendship with them
back then, it did not reach the point where he would help them offend an
expert Dou Ling.
“You should hold onto these five bottles properly. If you are to meet
the Company leader of that Snake Nest Mercenary Company, you can use Dou
Qi to activate them. After which throw one of them over. The danger will
naturally resolve itself automatically. Additionally, this jade plate can
make contact with me once. If you really meet with a big matter of life
and death in the future, you can break it. I will appear and help you.”
Xiao Yan flicked his finger. Five small jade bottles and a jade plate
flew toward Ka Gang. Each of the jade bottles possessed an extremely tiny
Ka Gang was startled as he received the jade bottles. He was somewhat in
a daze. The Company leader of the Snake Nest Mercenary Company could
actually be killed by relying on these small jade bottles?
“I still have other matters to do today so I will bid you goodbye. We
should be able to meet again if there is a chance in the future.” Xiao
Yan smiled. He did not wait for Ka Gang to recover when his body shook
and strangely disappeared in front of the many stunned gazes around him.
