Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-756
Xiao Yan rushed toward the Black Mountain Fortress that Yan Cheng had
mentioned in a lightning-like manner after having left Qingshan Town. Zi
Yan was following close behind him.
After he had broken through to the Dou Huang class, Xiao Yan’s flying
speed was clearly much faster than it was in the past. His body was like
a falling star as it flew through the sky. Within a couple of blinks, he
had disappeared into the horizon. Even though there would occasionally be
some gazes pausing in the sky, they could only see a ray of light that
leaped and flashed a couple of times.
Xiao Yan flew at his maximum speed. His face was covered with a
solemness. The matter that had occurred within this Jia Ma Empire was
completely beyond his expectations. He also felt a little fearful as he
recalled the problems. It was fortunate that Queen Medusa had intervened
this time around. Otherwise, it was likely that the Yan Alliance and the
Jia Ma Empire would have been destroyed by the Chu Yun Empire. At that
time, his Xiao clan would have been completely eliminated even without
the ‘Hall of Souls’ doing anything.
“Poison Sect…” The wild wind that blew by him caused his hair to
emit a ‘hu hu’ sound, revealing a pair of dark-black pupils that had
turned unusually dense and cold. A dragon had a reverse scale (a
sensitive part). Those who touched it would die. Xiao Yan’s reverse
scale was his kin. He would definitely get whoever dared to touch them to
repay over a hundredfold!
Zi Yan secretly extended her small tongue when she saw Xiao Yan’s dark
and cold expression from behind Xiao Yan. She did not dare to be
mischievous. All she could do was raise her speed and follow close behind
With Xiao Yan’s and Zi Yan’s speed, they would not require a long
time even if they had to fly over the entire Jia Ma Empire. Hence, the
stretching mountain range around them had become shorter after their
flight continued for around two hours. Enormous flat land that was
covered in yellow sand began to appear within their sight,
Xiao Yan also sighed in relief when the flat land appeared in his sight.
He clearly knew that since he was near a flat land region, it indicated
that he was not very far from the Black Mountain Fortress that Yan Cheng
During this swift flying that seemed like it was an attempt to chase the
moon and stars, Xiao Yan saw quite a number of human flow fleeing.
Clearly, many people held a pessimistic attitude toward the current
situation in the Jia Ma Empire. After all, the alliance between three
large empires was really too strong. It was clearly difficult for a Yan
Alliance without its chief and Queen Medusa to bear this burden.
Xiao Yan’s heart also grew gloomier as he observed the panic on faces
of those fleeing. This was the first time in so many years that he had
seen such a scene within the Jia Ma Empire. The creator of this was the
alliance of the three large empires!
Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed. A dark, chilly glint flashed across them. He
clenched his fist tightly and the fire wings on his back were flapped.
His flying speed suddenly soared.
There were hardly any people on the vast flat land, causing it to appear
quite desolate. Suddenly, the slight sound of rushing wind appeared in
the sky. Two light rays suddenly flashed and rushed by. The two light
rays had just appeared when they suddenly trembled. A large and a small
figure were revealed in the sky.
“What is it?” Zi Yan doubtfully asked when she saw Xiao Yan had
suddenly stopped. Was this fellow not in a great rush to hurriedly cover
lots of distance earlier?
“There are three auras which are quite strong over there. However, the
person in front is clearly fleeing. Those two auras that are following
closely behind are clearly intending to chase after the first
person…” Xiao Yan knit his brows slightly. His eyes looked in the
northern direction of the plains. He hesitated for a moment before his
Spiritual Perception spread out like floodwater from between his
eyebrows. Within a short instant, he had absorbed the distant situation
into his head.
“An expert from the Snake-People Race huh?” Xiao Yan’s Spiritual
Perception swiftly shrank back. He had already clearly saw that the
person who was fleeing at the front was an expert Dou Wang from the
Snake-People Race. The two people behind were two experts from some
unknown empire. However, it was obvious that they were not from the Jia
Ma Empire. Additionally, the thing that caused Xiao Yan to be most
surprised about was that the expert from the Snake-People Race, who was
fleeing, was actually someone whom he was familiar with…
A strange expression flashed across Xiao Yan’s face as he recalled the
matter from back then. His body immediately moved and shot explosively
toward the northern area. No matter how one put it, the Snake-People Race
were currently the ally of the Jia Ma Empire. Moreover, even if it was on
the account of Cai Lin, he ought to lend a hand and rescue that person.
Yue Mei appeared quite miserable today. This was the first time she was
fleeing aimlessly in any way she could after so many years. The people
who bestowed such miserable treatment on her were those two blue figures
who were following a short distance behind her.
“These two damn bastards. Once my injuries recover, I will definitely
tear off all the flesh on your bodies and feed that little beloved of
mine.” Yue Mei’s snake tail pressed on the ground in a strange
manner. Each time it moved, her body would suddenly shoot forward a
certain distance. While she fled, she did not forget to turn her head and
look at the two figures behind in a vicious manner while she cursed.
“Ugh, but the Ling Yan City has already fallen. This time around, it is
likely that quite a number of people from the three sects will enter the
empire. It is really troublesome…”
Yue Mei was originally a guardian of Ling Yan City. By relying on her
seven star Dou Wang strength, she had successfully defeated and forced
back some experts from the three sects who had attempted to siege the
city a couple of times. This time around, she had lost her good luck. No
one expected that the three sect alliance would actually dispatch three
experts of the Dou Wang class to a city that was not very large in size.
Moreover, there was one person whose strength was actually at the eight
The result of three expert Dou Wangs leading troops to attack the city
was very obvious. Yue Mei had seriously injure the other party’s Dou
Wang before being seriously wounded by the other party’s eight star
expert Dou Wang. After which, she could only abandon the city and flee.
However, it was fortunate that she had bought time for quite a number of
people in the city to flee. Hence, most of the people had already left
when this large army entered Ling Yan City. It was also because of this
that she had caused the other party’s expert Dou Wangs to become this
furious. One Dou Wang stayed behind to guard the city while the remaining
two expert Dou Wangs continued to chase her without giving up. From the
looks of it, it seemed that they had the intention of not giving up until
they caught her.
Of course, similar to the miserable appearance of Yue Mei, the two
middle-aged man, whose blue clothes displayed a bright gold goose sewn on
it, also presented quite a bad image. Although Yue Mei was seriously
injured, her strange agility Dou Qi from the Snake-People Race caused the
two of them to have difficulty catching up to her. It was unavoidable
that an irritation would appear in their hearts as more time passed.
However, when they recalled that this was an order that came from the
top, they could only stifle their heads and continue the wild chase.
“Dammit, once I capture that woman, the old me wants to ruthlessly
torture her. Otherwise it will be difficult to eliminate the hatred in my
heart!” A gloomy faced middle-aged man stared intently at the partially
visible figure not far in front. Even though she was fleeing miserably at
this moment, that graceful back still revealed some allure.
“Hee hee, I heard that the tongue skill of the Snake-People Race is
unusually fabulous. In our Luo Yan Empire, a Snake-People Race female
servant can be sold for an unusually high price. I just don’t know
whether this Dou Wang class pretty female snake will be more comfortable
compared to those ordinary female servants?” The other person revealed
a lewd expression as he sinisterly laughed.
The expression of the gloomy-faced middle-aged man moved a little when he
heard this. He laughed darkly and nodded as he said, “In that case, it
is all the more so that we cannot let her escape. Let’s put in more
effort. Do not enter too deep into the Jia Ma Empire. Otherwise, it would
be troublesome if we were to meet other experts.”
A bright gold glow erupted from the bodies of the two of them after their
voices sounded. A pair of geese golden light wings was extended from each
of the two people’s back. The golden wings were flapped and their speed
Yue Mei, who was exhausted from fleeing at the front, had also sensed
wind get closer from behind her. She clenched her silver teeth and went
all out to stimulate the Dou Qi within her body. However, how could this
seriously injured body of hers withstand this great squeezing by her? The
Dou Qi glow on her body became much dimmer. Her snake tail also suddenly
became weak and her entire body collapsed weakly. She panted while
fragrant perspiration dripped down.
“Oh, why? You’re too tired to continue running?” The two golden
lights flashed over the instant that Yue Mei fell. One was at the front
while the other was at the back, sealing off all her escape routes. A
middle-aged man’s gaze slowly swept over the former’s snow-white
waist, and the corner of his mouth was lifted in an obscene manner, “I
have yet to taste a Snake-People Race Dou Wang female slave.”
Some darkness surfaced within Yue Mei’s long snake eyes. A bewitching
smile, however, appeared on her face while she spoke to the two of them,
“You can just tell me if you want me to serve you. Why do you need to
chase me this far?”
“Ke ke, forget it. We don’t have the blessing to enjoy you who gives
herself to us. It would not be too late for us to slowly play once we
capture you and cripple your Dou Qi.” A middle-aged man laughed. His
eyes were dark and solemn and he immediately cried out coldly, “Attack.
Don’t dilly-dally with her.”
The middle-aged man’s companion smiled and nodded when he heard this.
The hands of both of them moved and a golden glow soared. It suddenly
agglomerated into two five-foot-tall golden geese, which were immediately
pointed to Yue Mei. The two large golden-colored geese immediately
emitted a sharp cry to the sky. Their wings were flapped and they shot
toward Yue Mei.
The force that the golden geese arrived with was extremely sharp. Two
deep gullies were even formed when they shot over the ground.
Yue Mei clenched her silver teeth when she looked at the sharp golden
glow that was swiftly approaching. She maneuvered the little remaining
Dou Qi in her body before waving her delicate hand. Her Dou Qi
transformed into a Dou Qi pillar that shot out to meet the two golden
A muffled explosion sounded when the two came into contact. The Dou Qi
pillar of Yue Mei disappeared at a speed that was visible to the naked
eye. The two golden geese, whose color had become slightly fainter,
carried a sharp wind and shot over.
Yue Mei’s eyes slowly became dark after having exhausted the last
thread of Dou Qi within her body. The current her ceased having even a
little strength to put up a resistance. However, the poison within her
mouth could still prevent her from being humiliated by these two bastards
The bright golden glow swiftly magnified in those snake eyes that
contained despair. Just as Yue Mei had slowly shut her eyes, the slight
sound of rolling-thunder suddenly resonated in the sky without any
forewarning. A black figure immediately appeared in front of her in a
ghost-like manner. Those two golden geese that contained a sharp wind
disappeared when they were around five feet from his body.
Yue Mei was feeling doubtful when the intense pain that she had
anticipated did not arrive. However, a warm voice slowly sounded beside
“Are you alright?”
Yue Mei was startled when she heard the voice. She suddenly opened her
eyes and a young face containing a smile immediately appeared within her
