Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-759
The vast, endless plains possessed two towering mountain ranges that
stood with their peaks piercing the sky. Such a tall mountain range was a
place that an ordinary person would have difficulty climbing. An
incomparably huge fortress guarded the gap between these two mountain
ranges like a fierce prehistoric beast, protecting the main road that
lead into and out of the Jia Ma Empire. This fortress was the most
important defensive line in the hearts of the people of the Jia Ma
Empire. If this defensive line was torn apart, the three empires armies
would march straight into the Jia Ma Empire!
The size of the fortress was so large that it left one speechless.
Compared to the Zhen Gui Pass that Xiao Yan had visited back then, it was
undoubtedly a junior meeting a senior. The walls of this fortress was
completely built from the dark-black volcanic rock. It had an unusually
frightening toughness. Such a wall would likely be able to hold out for a
long time even against the attacks of an elite Dou Huang.
Densely packed soldiers could be seen all over the fortress’ wall.
There were also countless number of enormous ballistas faintly present.
Steel arrows that were as thick as one’s thigh had been loaded onto the
ballistas and were ready to unleash a frightening strength at any moment.
This defensive line was worthy of being as firm as metal under the
protection of a countless number of soldiers. Even the three empire
alliance would have to pay a hefty and bloody price in order to
forcefully attack and tear this defensive line apart.
Over ten human figures with quite a great reputation within the empire
stood on the middle of the city wall. At this moment, their gazes carried
a thread of worry as they looked at an extremely far spot from the
fortress. Densely packed armies rolled out like dark clouds from that
spot. At a glance, one could see an endless number of them. From the
looks of the large flags that the armies carried, they were the alliance
military from the three large empires.
Of course, the thing that caused them the most worry was not these
ordinary soldiers. Instead it was the three elite Dou Zongs who were
hidden within the army. In the eyes of a truly strong person, an ordinary
army did not pose much of a threat. As long as one was an expert Dou
Wang, one would be able to easily defend against a ten thousand man
strong army. This was also the reason why the strong possessed a position
that exceeded that of royalty on this continent!
The strong reigned supreme in the Dou Qi continent. Royal authority was
“Ugh, I heard that the ones who have led everyone over this time around
are Yan Luo Tian and the three Elders from the Mulan Valley… although
the most troublesome Sect Leader of the Poison Sect will not appear, this
is already enough to feel an extremely great pressure. After all, this is
equivalent to two elite Dou Zongs.” Hai Bodong’s gaze stared into the
distance for a moment before withdrawing it and sighing.
The current Hai Bodong had truly reached the peak of the Dou Huang class
where he was comparable to Jia Lao after the repeated big fights during
the past year. Breaking through to the Dou Zong class was only one step
away. Of course, the distance of this one step was such that it was an
ordinary thing for one to be unable to cross in one’s lifetime if one
did not have the opportunity. After all, there were an unknown number of
people on the Dou Qi continent who had ended up stopping at this stage.
Despite this, a Dou Huang was ultimately a Dou Huang. Unless one
possessed some unusual abnormal Dou Skills, it was basically impossible
to leap across the class and challenge an elite Dou Zong. After all, not
everyone was like Xiao Yan. He not only possessed the mysterious ‘Flame
Mantra’ Qi Method but also unique treasures like three ‘Heavenly
Flames’ and the ‘God Seal Skill’.
“I have already dispatched some people to the ‘Black-Corner Region’
to search for Second Brother. He will definitely come and lend a hand if
he receives the news. However… a distant water source cannot quench
one’s immediate thirst. It is likely going to be a different situation
by the time he leads people over.” Xiao Ding, who was seated on a
wheelchair, softly sighed. During this period of time, he had spent a
great amount of effort and thought in order to deal with the attacks of
the three sects. However, the other party had people who were equivalent
to three elite Dou Zongs. This was ultimately a huge weight that was
pressing on the hearts of everyone in the Jia Ma Empire.
“Your Majesty, are your injuries alright?” Xiao Ding’s hand patted
gently on his wheelchair before he turned his head to look at the cold
pretty face of the bewitching lady beside him. Her moving appearance was
indeed a rare beauty in this kind of place that was filled with blood and
Perhaps it was due to Xiao Ding’s relationship with someone but the
coldness on Medusa’s bewitching face, which was staring into the
distance with cold eyes, slowly became warmer. She said, “I have
consumed the medicinal pill that the Yan Alliance alchemists have refined
and recovered quite a bit. Although my fighting strength is slightly
weakened, there are no serious problems.”
Xiao Ding laughed bitterly and nodded slightly. He said, “It’s been
tough on you.”
“I am also thinking of the Snake-People Race. Now that everyone’s
relationship is one where the death of anyone will cause the other to
suffer, the losses from any single side will result in a destructive
end.” Medusa shook her head. She turned her head slightly as her eyes
looked toward the distant Magical Beast Mountain Range. She clenched her
silver teeth and sighed within her heart, “Have you not come out of
your retreat? If you are a little later, it is likely that the Jia Ma
Empire will really be destroyed…”
“Ugh, I wonder how third brother doing. His retreat actually took an
entire year. It is best that no accident has happened to him….” Xiao
Ding also understood what Medusa was thinking when he saw her gaze. He
rubbed his forehead and bitterly laughed.
“This little bastard always plays it like this… if he does not return
soon, this Yan Alliance will be finished.” Hai Bodong by his side could
not resist opening his mouth to speak when he heard Xiao Ding’s words.
“I think it should be soon. As long as we are able to endure until he
comes out from his retreat, the situation will be much better. After all,
that fellow may be a Dou Huang but if he unleashes his full strength, he
is able to contend against an elite Dou Zong. At that time, our side will
have two elite Dou Zongs. Even the people from the three sects would not
dare to act rashly. If we were to really go into an all out fight, this
Queen would at the very least be able to drag one of them down even if I
end up dying!” Medusa voiced her thoughts. A dense chill immediately
flashed across her pupils.
“That Sect Leader of the Poison Sect, Yan Luo Tian from the Gold Geese
Sect, and the three Elders from the Mulan Valley are afraid that you will
do this. Hence, they have not been engaging in a deathmatch with you.
However, this time, it is likely that they have made preparations when
they join hands. Your Majesty, you should be more careful.” Jia Xing
Tian by the other side spoke in a deep voice while wearing a respectful
Medusa nodded slightly. She was about to speak when a thunder-like
drumbeat began to spread over from far away in a mighty manner. It
immediately affected the entire fortress.
“They are about to begin their attack!” The expressions of Medusa and
the others were tense as they heard this hurried drumbeat.
The ground began to tremble not long after the drumbeat sounded. The
enormous endless sea of people in the distance began to rush over toward
the fortress like ocean waves. The orderly bang as their feet landed on
the ground resounded over this place like a thunderous roar, giving
people a heavy feeling within their hearts.
“All the experts Dou Wangs from the Yan Alliance and the Snake-People
Race, spread yourself all over the defensive lines. Tightly guard against
the enemy’s expert Dou Wangs!” Xiao Ding’s expression gradually
became solemn as he turned his head and spoke in a stern manner.
A large number of people responded behind him upon hearing the order.
Immediately, numerous human figures flew out in a lightning-like manner.
“Everyone, today’s big battle affects the survival of our Jia Ma
Empire and the Snake-People Race. Therefore, let’s go all out!” Xiao
Ding’s gaze slowly swept over everyone as he spoke in a deep voice.
Everyone nodded their heads heavily with a solemn expression when they
heard his words. This battle concerned their survival!
While the fortress entered into a battle ready mode, the black masses of
human heads began to flood over amid the loud battle cries that soared to
the sky. Numerous rays of light flew through the air above this sea of
people. These were the experts from the three sects, the figures who
caused the pressure on the Black Mountain Fortress to soar.
When the endless black masses of human flow were still around a thousand
meters from the fortress, a killing aura surged to the sky with a loud
stomping sound. It spread out before covering the entire Black Mountain
Fortress into it!
The rays of light flew across in the sky while numerous people with Dou
Qi wings on their backs appeared. Their gazes carried cold smiles as they
observed the tightly guarded Black Mountain Fortress.
“Ke ke, it is really unexpected that your Jia Ma Empire is so stubborn.
You are actually able to endure for nearly a year in the face of our
three empire alliance. Even though your Jia Ma Empire will be completely
defeated in this battle, your Jia Ma Empire’s reputation could be
considered to have soared in this northwestern region.” A powerful wild
laugh suddenly sounded while the armies faced each other. Finally, it
resounded over the sky.
“Yan Luo Tian!” The face of Medusa and the others in the fortress
immediately turned cold upon hearing the laughter. Their mouths spat out
a name that was incomparably prestigious within the Luo Yan Empire.
A bright golden glow suddenly shot into the sky from the large army after
the laughter sounded. It immediately stayed suspended in the sky.
Everyone’s eyes drifted over, only to see a man who was wearing golden
clothes floating in the sky. A pair of unusually large gold-colored goose
wings flickered, appearing much like a divine being.
The black masses of soldiers immediately erupted into an earth-shaking
cheer when this gold-clothed man appeared. Clearly, this Yan Luo Tian
possessed an extremely high reputation among them.
Medusa’s face was icy-cold as she looked at Yan Luo Tian. Her body
moved and she was already in the sky outside of the fortress the next
time she appeared. Her gaze swept over Yan Luo Tian only to laugh, “A
mere two star Dou Zong also dares to act presumptuous in front of this
“Hee hee, Medusa’s beauty has been spread among a number of countries
around. You really live up to your reputation. This ancestor (refer to
himself as a Dou Zong) knows that I alone will be no match for you.
Hence, I am naturally not intending to fight alone…” A cold smile
surfaced on the corner of Yan Luo Tian’s mouth as he slowly spoke.
“Ha ha, you are indeed worthy of being Queen Medusa. You are really a
hero among women. Today, allow the three of us and the Geese Sect’s
Leader to exchange blows with you…” Three different rays of light
shot out from the army below just after Yan Luo Tian’s voice sounded.
Finally, three smiling Elders appeared in the air.
Medusa’s eyes shrank slightly as she looked at the three old men. Her
face was icy as she emphasized every word with a pause.
“Mulan. Three. Elders.”
