Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-754
Compared to Qingshan Town of the past, it undoubtedly appeared much more
pressurized and quiet today. Human figures were rare on the streets
within the town. The gates around it were all tightly shut. Black masses
of human figures were partially visible on the towering walls that were
built using granite. Soft private conversations were repeatedly
resounding among the human crowd.
“Dammit, how did these poison users enter the middle area of the
empire? Does the front not have the defensive line of the Yan Alliance
and the Imperial Family?”
“The three large empires have joined hands to attack the Jia Ma Empire.
Regardless of how strong the Yan Alliance is, there is a limit to their
manpower. How could they take care of every position. These ten plus
bastards should have slipped in through a gap.”
“What do we do now? Looking at those badges on the chest of these
fellows, there is a four star poison master. Other than an expert at the
Dou Wang class, who can deal with a poison master of this level?”
“Ugh, our Qingshan Town currently only possesses Company Leader Yan
Cheng who is an eight star Dou Ling. The others are mostly at the Dou Shi
or the Da Dou Shi class. If that four star poison master scatters a
poison fog over, it is likely that many people present will immediately
be poisoned and fall unconscious.”
“Dammit, if it is really not possible, we will go all out and fight
with them. We have many people, do we still need to be afraid of the ten
plus of them?”
“They earnestly wish that we will open the gates on our own. It is not
as though you are unaware of just how frightening a poison master is.
They specialize in fighting against a group alone. If it were not a
situation where the other party suppressed them with absolute strength,
it will not be easy to kill them.”
A large group of large cold-faced mercenary was surrounded in the middle
of a black mass of human heads. They had a similar mercenary company
badge on their chest. If one were to look carefully, they were
surprisingly the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company Xiao Yan had rescued
back then. The middle-aged man at the leader’s spot was the company
leader of the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company, Yan Cheng. Beside him were
the two familiar faces of Ka Gang and Ling Er.
At this moment, all the gazes were thrown onto the ten plus human figures
outside of the walls. Their faces were somewhat ugly.
“Second uncle, what should we do? It is not a solution to continue
guarding in this manner. It is rumored that quite a number of poison
masters have snuck into the this Magical Beast Mountain Range. Recently,
there have been reports of small towns being washed with blood. These
vicious methods are something that only these perverts could do.” Ling
Er’s bright eyes were viciously looking at the ten plus human figures
below the walls while she spoke in a somewhat anxious tone.
“What else can we do other than to defend this place until we die? Do
you not see that they possess a tier 4 poison master among them? A poison
master of this tier is someone whom even I do not have much of chance of
winning against. Today, if the other side possessed an expert who could
fly and the tall specially built walls, which were built to defend
against an attack by the Magical Beasts, around Qingshan Town didn’t
exist, it is likely that they would have long since charged in and begun
a massacre.” Yan Cheng’s expression was extremely gloomy as he spoke.
“Now, we can only wait. This place is the interior of the Jia Ma
Empire. As long as we endure for a period of time, there might be an
expert from the ‘Yan Alliance’ who will come and rescue us.”
Ling Er laughed bitterly in her heart. She quietly sighed, “Currently,
most of the experts from the ‘Yan Alliance’ were delayed by the
experts from the three large empires. Where would it find the excess
However, while everyone was discussing a plan, the ten plus gray-robed
human figures below the wall finally began to display some activity. An
old man, who wore a poison centipede badge with four colorful lines on
his chest, slowly walked forward. His dark and cold triangular eyes
glanced at the walls as an ear-piercing awful sound was slowly emitted.
The voice immediately reverberated within the ears of everyone on the
“We will give all of you ten minutes to decide whether you will open
the gates by yourself, or the old me will unleash a poison fog and let
all the people in this small town die because of your foolish actions.”
The gray-robed old man slowly shut his eyes after his voice sounded. He
did not bother about just what kind of uproar it stirred on the walls.
Time slowly passed by. The gray-robed old man slowly opened his eyes
after ten minutes. His shriveled face involuntarily revealed a cruel
smile when he saw that the wall had no reaction. His voice was dark and
cold as he said, “Do you really think that the city wall is able to
protect all of you?” An unusual green glow surfaced on the old man’s
face once he said this. He immediately waved his sleeves and a large
dense green poison fog appeared.
The ten somewhat young gray-robed individuals behind the old man
immediately let out a deep cry when the poison fog appeared. They waved
both of their hands, carrying a wild wind with it. As this wild wind
blew, the green-colored poison fog began to gradually scatter before
finally lingering over the city walls.
“Use Dou Qi to cover your bodies. Don’t breathe!” Yan Cheng’s
expression immediately changed drastically as he cried out loud when he
saw the green-colored poison fog that slowly drifted up.
The mercenaries on the wall hurriedly maneuvered the Dou Qi within their
bodies with all their strength when they heard Yan Cheng’s loud cry.
After which, they wrapped their bodies with their Dou Qi.
“Tsk tsk, you actually want to block the old me’s green snake poison
with your mediocre mercenary strengths?” The gray-robed old man coldly
laughed when he saw this. He waved his sleeves and the ten people behind
him did their best to stimulate the Dou Qi within their bodies. After
which, they created waves after waves of wild wind that blew the
green-colored poison fog up.
The poison fog rose and it eventually began to gradually reach the height
of the walls a moment later. It immediately wrapped many mercenaries with
it. Quite a number of weak mercenaries began to show signs of giddiness
at the moment of contact. A moment later, they actually fell head first
to the ground and became unconscious.
Yan Cheng’s face also became increasingly uglier when he saw this. He
clenched his teeth and viciously said, “Dammit, go all out and fight
with these bastards. Brothers, follow me and charge!”
Ling Er by the side opened her mouth slightly when she heard this.
However, she could only sigh in a disparate manner. A tier 4 poison
master could be considered a main military strength even if placed in the
battleground at the front. Their fighting strengths were naturally
extraordinary. With just these mercenaries from their Bloody Battle
Mercenary Company, they would most likely be just seeking death by going
over. However, if they did not, this poison fog would sooner or later
cause all of them to lose their fighting strength. At that time, they
would end up dying more miserably.
The faces of those members of the Bloody Battle Mercenary Company
trembled after hearing Yan Cheng’s voice. They furiously nodded as they
tightened their grips on their sharp blades.
The gray-robed old man below looked at the commotion on the wall and the
ruthlessness in his eyes became denser. Other than the expert Dou Ling,
whom he was quietly a little concerned about, he could take the little
lives of the remaining people up there with a wave of his hand.
The gray-robed old man let out a savage laugh in his heart. Another wave
of green-colored fog was spat out. The desolate feeling within the hearts
of those people on the wall involuntarily became denser upon seeing this.
This old bastard really did hold the thought of completely massacring all
Quite a number of mercenaries began to harden themselves. They planned to
head down and stake their lives after seeing the slow rise of the second
cluster of bright-green poisonous fog. Having frequently licked blood
from their blades, they did not feel the slightest fear despite knowing
that this action of theirs was seeking death. In any case, they would die
no matter what they did…
The temperature of the sky suddenly rose swiftly while everyone was
prepared to descend from the walls. Following the increase in the
temperature, the dense green poison fog began to emit a ‘chi chi’
sound. Immediately, it became like snow in boiling oil as it swiftly
The sudden scene resulted in both parties being startled. They looked at
each other with faces that were at a loss.
Two blurry human figures suddenly flashed over from the direction of the
Magical Beast Mountain Range while everyone was still at a loss. Within a
couple of breaths, these two people appeared in the sky above the small
“Expert Dou Wangs?”
Everyone looked at the pair of Dou Qi wings on the back of these two
people the moment their figures appeared. They immediately emitted waves
of exclamations. Immediately, both parties became uneasy, fearing that
this was the other party’s reinforcement.
Among the two human figures who had appeared, the person in front was
completely wrapped within a jade-green flame. A hot temperature was
scattered from his body. Behind him was a little girl whose body was
emitting a faint purple glow. She was looking at the gray-robed person
The jade-green flame rippled slowly. A moment later, it gradually
scattered and revealed the black-robed, young man within it.
The somewhat uneasy Yan Cheng and the others on the wall looked at the
black-robed, young man who had revealed his face. They were suddenly
startled. Ling Er by the side was also stunned as she muttered, “It is
“Chief Xiao!” Yan Cheng was startled for a moment before he suddenly
reacted to the situation. His body suddenly stood up and he shouted in

The mercenaries did not recover within a short period of time when they
heard the shout of Yan Cheng. However, from the looks of Yan Cheng’s
appearance, it seemed that the person who had arrived was not an enemy.
They immediately sighed in relief.
The expression of the gray-robed old man below changed drastically at the
same time as Yan Cheng shouted out loud. It seemed that the person who
had arrived was an expert from the Jia Ma Empire. When this thought
flashed across his heart, his body suddenly turned into a green fog as he
rushed toward the forest. The ten gray-robed people behind him hurriedly
Xiao Yan’s gaze observed the fleeing ten plus gray-robed human figures
from the sky. An invisible flame on the tip of his finger fluctuated
The moment the fluctuation appeared, the ten plus gray-robed human
figures, who were about to enter the forest, suddenly trembled. They
immediately turned into a pile of black ashes in front of the many
shocked gazes on the wall without even leaving behind a miserable cry…
Xiao Yan displayed his vicious tactics of killing over ten people in an
instant before his body moved and appeared on the wall. He frowned
slightly as he looked at those unconscious mercenaries. After taking out
a couple of medicinal pills, he tossed them into the air and struck them
with the flick of his finger. A wisp of jade-green flame wrapped around
them and a dense pill fragrance spread out from within the pills.
When the pill fragrance spread, the unconscious, poisoned mercenaries on
the walls began to slowly wake up amid many coughing sound. All of them
were at a loss.
Xiao Yan ignored the heated respectful gazes around him. He strode toward
the spot where Yan Cheng and the others were located. The first words he
asked in a deep voice were, “What has happened?”
