Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-746
The Bloody Battle Mercenary Company had always been the largest and most
renowned mercenary company within a fifty kilometer radius of the
Qingshan Town. Being able to maintain this kind of position while being
near the Magical Beast Mountain Range was enough to indicate their great
strength. However, this kind of situation had undergone a drastic change
ever since that so-called Snake Nest Mercenary Company had entered
Qingshan Town a year ago.
The Snake Nest Mercenary Company was also quite a strong Mercenary
Company on the edge of the Magical Beast Mountain Range. It could be
considered to be equivalent to the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company. In
normal circumstances, neither party should be able to do anything to the
other. However, the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company was disadvantaged
lacking a strong background to support them.
Everyone was aware of the background of the Snake Nest Mercenary Company.
It was the He clan from Black Rock City. This clan could be considered a
prominent clan even in the northwestern region of the empire. Although
its reputation could not be compared with the three large clans of the
empire, it was not to be underestimated. The greatest reason for this was
that the current He clan had a four star elite Dou Wang!
Dou Wang, this class which held an extremely great weight within the Jia
Ma Empire was sufficient to cause many people to submit in awe. After
all, this class could already be considered a true strong person.
The Dou Ling and Dou Wang were the two classes with the greatest divide
during the Dou Qi training journey. One might not dare to say that there
were as many expert Dou Lings as the grains of sand in a desert within
the enormous Jia Ma Empire, but it was not exaggerating to say that one
would find a large bundle of them by just randomly grabbing. However, it
was likely that there were less than a hundred Dou Wangs within the
entire Jia Ma Empire. This also clearly represented the difference
between a Dou Ling and Dou Wang.
The Company Leader of the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company was a seven
star expert Dou Ling while the Company Leader of the Snake Nest Mercenary
Company was an expert eight star Dou Ling. The two of them were around
the same strength and it was difficult to determine the superior person
should they fight. However, during the many exchanges between the two
mercenary companies during this one year, the Snake Nest Mercenary
Company had gained the upper hand in most of them. The reason for this
was because the Snake Nest Mercenary Company was able to borrow quite a
number of experts from the He clan to aid in their fights.
The Company Leader of the Snake Nest Mercenary Company was the son-in-law
of the He clan. Moreover, he was liked by the clan head of the He clan.
Hence, the latter merely closed an eye when he borrowed the clan’s
experts to deal with his opponent. It was but a small mercenary company
and it would not matter if it was destroyed.
The last time that Xiao Yan met Ka Gang and Ling Er was coincidentally
the moment when the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company was facing a life and
death situation. That time around, the Company Leader from the Snake Nest
Mercenary Company had invited a total of two experts from the He clan
whose strength were around that of a six star Dou Ling. Hence, he had
overwhelmed the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company in terms of the expert
level. Seeing their leader being defeated, the Blood Battle Mercenary
Company’s moral was naturally low. The had difficulty stopping the
Snake Nest Mercenary Company’s attack. If Xiao Yan had not appeared
midway through the attack, it was likely that the Bloody Battle Mercenary
Company would have completely disappeared from Qingshan Town.
Xiao Yan did not personally go and lend a hand after rescuing Ka Gang and
Ling Er. After all, from the way he saw it, he did not have much of a
friendship with the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company. He had intervened to
rescue them only because he had met Ka Gang once back then. Hence, he had
given Ka Gang five ‘Fire Lotus Bottles’ that he had made himself.
From how he saw it, these five ‘Fire Lotus Bottles’ were sufficient
to deal with some Dou Ling class mercenaries.
Of course, things did occur according to his expectations. After
obtaining the five ‘Fire Lotus Bottles’ that Xiao Yan had given him,
Ka Gang rescued the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company from being destroyed.
The three ‘Fire Lotus Bottles’ that he threw caused the Snake Nest
Mercenary Company’s leader and the two experts from the He clan to
suffer two deaths and one injury. This tactic instantly turned the
situation around. The Snake Nest Mercenary Company suffered a terrible
As a result of surviving through a great disaster, the Bloody Battle
Mercenary Company’s reputation had soared. Within a short one month,
they had expelled all of the people from the Snake Nest Mercenary Company
out of Qingshan Town. However, they also knew that this matter would
definitely disturb the He clan. It might even be transmitted to the ear
of the clan head of the He clan. After all, two of the clan’s expert
Dou Lings and his son-in-law ended up with such a miserable fate. This
kind of loss was something that could not be easily ignored from the He
clan’s point of view.
Although they ultimately knew this, the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company
was unwilling to give up their many years of hard work. Hence, the
difference in opinions within the company was quite large. However, just
as they were about to come to a decision, their faces turned pale upon
the realization that the experts from the He clan had already arrived at
Qingshan Town. Moreover, the thing that caused them the greatest despair
was that the clan head of the He clan, whose strength was at the Dou Wang
class, was also among the members of the He clan who had arrived.
Under the frightening strength of this expert Dou Wang, all the defenses
of the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company were easily destroyed one after
another. The entire mercenary company was filled with despair and
helplessness under the dark, cold face of the clan head from the He clan.
At this moment, Ka Gang, who held the thought of taking chances, secretly
broke the jade plate that Xiao Yan had given him back then.
Despite not being certain about whether Xiao Yan was a match for this
clan head from the He clan, the former was already the only hope of the
entire Bloody Battle Mercenary Company at such a moment. Hence, Ka Gang
still broke that jade plate in his hand even though he lacked confidence.
The premises of the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company which were originally
filled with laughter and curses had become unusually quiet at this
moment. Nearly a few hundred members of the company and their families
were chased toward the open ground which they usually used for training.
Under the dark and cold gaze of those guards from the He clan who
surrounded them, even the children could only bite their lips tightly,
not daring to emit even the slightest crying sound. This was because
there were already dozens of corpses, whose heads had been separated from
their bodies, on an empty ground beside them. At this moment, it was a
warning with blood.
A large chair with a soft covering was placed on the stairs on the open
ground. An old man wearing chinese clothes was seated on it while
possessing a gloomy expression. At this moment, his hand was tightly
holding a jade bottle. His eyes were like poisonous snakes as they swept
over it slowly.
“All of you have relied on this to seriously injure my son-in-law and
kill the two experts from my He clan?” The old man played with the jade
bottle in his hand. He glanced at the fire lotus in the bottle and spoke
with a dense tone.
A commotion occurred on the open ground. The lips of Ka Gang, who was
right at the front, moved. He stepped forward and spoke in a hoarse
voice, “I am the one who got ahold of this jade bottle. If you wish to
kill, I will allow you to dispose of me as you please. However, I hope
that the clan head of the He clan will be magnanimous and let off these
women and children from the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company. They are not
aware of anything.”
Behind Ka Gang was a pale-faced middle-aged man. Looking at his clothes,
it was likely that he possessed quite a high position within the company.
At this moment, however, he could only reveal a miserable smile. Although
he possessed the strength of a Dou Ling, he was totally worthless in
front of this clan leader of the He Clan. This was because he suffered
serious injuries from the other party’s punch.
“Second Uncle, are you alright?” Ling Er who was beside the
middle-aged man helped the latter up while possessing a pair of red eyes.
Her voice contained a little tearful sound.
“I’m fine…” The middle-aged man spoke bitterly, “However, I may
be fine now but my ending later will also wash this place with blood.”
“That won’t happen… as long as mister Xiao Yan is able to come, we
will definitely be fine.” Ling Er hurriedly shook her head as she bit
her lips and spoke softly.
“Mister Xiao Yan? The mysterious person who gave the both of you the
‘Fire Lotus Bottles’? Ke ke, his name is similar to the chief of the
strongest ‘Yan Alliance’ currently in the capital. However, how is it
possible for you and I to meet such a strong person?” The middle-aged
man mocked himself and shook his head. He did not place his hope in this
Ling Er moved her lips. However, she did not say any words. After all,
the person who was seated on the stage was an elite Dou Wang who could
destroy the entire Bloody Battle Mercenary Company with a raise of his
hand. Her eyes also darkened a little when she thought of Xiao Yan’s
The head of the He clan clenched his fist during the time that Ling Er
was conversing with that middle-aged man. The jade bottle was covered
with crack lines. His eyes suddenly narrowed a moment later and he
suddenly threw the jade bottle. A bright explosive sound resounded over
the place and a deep hole that was over ten feet in size appeared in the
The eyes belonging to the clan head of the He clan brightened slightly as
he looked at the deep hole. He did not expect that this small jade bottle
of fire lotus would actually have such a destructive strength. If he were
able to get ahold of a little more of these thing and throw dozens of it
together, even a Dou Wang class expert would need to temporarily take
“Where did you get ahold of this thing?” The clan head of the He clan
turned his gaze toward Ka Gang and questioned.
“I have coincidentally obtained it while I was hunting Magical Beast in
the mountains.” Ka Gang’s eyes quivered. He immediately replied when
he heard this question. From the looks of the situation, it seemed that
this old fellow had some greedy thoughts toward this ‘Fire Lotus
Bottle’. However, Ka Gang did not wish to reveal Xiao Yan as his
benefactor, it was likely that it would cause quite a great amount of
trouble to the latter.
Although Ka Gang had gave a swift reply, the glint within his eyes did
not escape the crafty clan head of the He clan. The latter immediately
laughed coldly. He randomly swung his hand and a force rushed out before
eventually smashing heavily against Ka Gang’s body.
Ka Gang immediately spat out a mouthful of fresh blood upon receiving
such a heavy blow. His body rubbed against the slippy ground for over ten
meters before coming to a stop. His body had just stopped when two guards
from the He clan charged forward and grabbed him before violently
throwing him back.
“I will give you one more chance. I can let you off if you tell me.”
The clan head of the He clan rubbed his sleeves with his hand and spoke
“I have already told you that this is something I obtained from the
mountains.” Ka Gang’s expression was pale. A trace of blood was
repeatedly seeping out from the corner of his mouth. His body lay on the
ground as he raised his head and spoke with great difficulty while
staring intently at the clan head of the He clan.
The hand belonging to the clan head of the He clan that was rubbing his
sleeves slowly stopped. A darkness gradually surfaced on his face as he
slowly walked down the stairs. A moment later, he arrived in front of Ka
Gang and he looked at Ka Gang, who was struggling on the verge of death,
with cold and indifferent eyes. A savage smile appeared on the corner of
his mouth. He immediately raised his hand high up before violently
stomping on Ka Gang’s head. From the looks of the force, it was likely
that Ka Gang’s head would immediately burst apart like a watermelon
that landed on the ground if he were struck by it.
Numerous sharp cries immediately sounded in the open ground upon seeing
this scene. The ferocity on the corner of the mouth of the clan head of
the He clan grew even more dense upon hearing the sharp cries from around
him. However, when his foot was merely an inch or so from Ka Gang’s
head, a calm voice quietly sounded in the open ground. That foot of his
had suddenly stiffened at this moment.
