Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-784
With the empire becoming peaceful, Xiao Yan’s life gradually became
much quieter. He would occasionally train, and would also refine
medicinal pills in front of the many alchemist within the Pill Hall of
the Yan Alliance when he was free. Obtaining cheers throughout the hall,
he had gained the proud alchemists approval of him as the chief.
Although the alchemists within the Pill Hall possessed a great
understanding of Xiao Yan’s fighting abilities from this battle, being
alchemists, they naturally placed the greatest value on pill refinement.
If Xiao Yan wanted to get them to submit, he had to show them outstanding
refinement skills. Of course, if one were to compare medicinal
refinement, it was likely that Xiao Yan would not be afraid of anyone
within this Jia Ma Empire. His current medicinal refinement skills were
enough to refine a tier 6 medicinal pill. Other than Pill-King Gu He, it
was likely that only Fa Ma could barely refine such a pill within the Jia
Little Fairy Doctor did not send any other news during this period of
time. However, Xiao Yan knew that she had currently dispatched countless
numbers of people to find the ingredients needed to control the ‘Woeful
Poison Body.’ She would definitely inform Xiao Yan once she had any
information. At that time, it was likely that there would be trouble
With everything having calmed down, Medusa, being the tribe chief,
naturally needed to personally go and manage the big matter of the
Snake-People Tribe moving their home. Hence, she had temporarily bid Xiao
Yan goodbye not long after having returned to the Jia Ma Empire. She then
led all the Snake-People to engage in this great migration. Finally, they
began to build a new home in the large area near the Magical Beast
It was only natural that Medusa did not have the time to follow beside
Xiao Yan with her being so busy. Xiao Yan had become used to that kind of
life and now felt somewhat uneasy because of this change. It seemed that
Medusa had been following beside him every since he had left the Jia Nan
Academy’s Inner Academy. She had originally possessed a killing intent
as he reason to follow him. With the flow of time, Xiao Yan could sense
that the killing intent in her heart weakened by the day and likely no
longer existed by now.
Xiao Yan’s mind did not pay much attention when Medusa was following
beside him all the time. Now that she had left, he immediately felt that
he lacked something. His heart contained an empty feeling. He felt
somewhat vexed when he discovered this emotion. This was because it cause
him to think about Xun Er whose location was unknown. That usually warm
and moving young lady was just like spring water, seeping into one’s
heart without one even realizing it. Finally, she would leave an imprint
deep within one’s heart that could not be removed no matter how one
Xiao Yan could not help but stop the actions of his hands when he thought
of the elegant, young lady who carried a thread of mystery. His eyes were
absent-minded as he looked in all directions, but he did not know which
direction he ought to face. An instant later, he could only quietly sigh
and mutter softly, “Xun Er, wait for me. I will get to the Dou Zong
class as soon as possible. After that, I will go and look for you!”
“No matter how frightening that clan of yours is, I will not feel the
A graceful, partially visible figure was on a precipitous mountain peak
where clouds lingered. Her delicate waist appeared just like the willow
leaves one could hug with one arm. Her black hair was carelessly tied by
a pale-purple ribbon. It drifted with the breeze that blew over, giving
the young lady an otherworldly, elegant aura.
The young lady’s eyes were shut. A moment later, she slowly opened
them. The surrounding fog immediately scattered when she did so. This
mountain peak immediately became visibly clear.
“Old Ling, have you returned?”
The young lady did not turn her head as her sleek, red, small lips
emitted an ethereal silver-bell-like sound that reverberated on the peak
of the mountain.
A shadow under a mountain rock immediately began to wiggle in a strange
fashion after her voice sounded. It immediately transformed into an old
figure. The figure surprisingly belonged to Ling Ying!
Ling Ying respectfully bowed to the young lady after revealing himself.
“Xiao-jie (Young Miss).”
“How is it? Do you have news of him?” The young lady sat up from the
rock platform, turned around, and revealed a smiling face with an
ethereal lotus like disposition. At this moment, the voice in which one
usually had difficulty detecting any fluctuation actually revealed
Who else would this face belong to other than Xun Er, whom Xiao Yan
thought about night and day.
It had been three to four years since Xun Er had left Xiao Yan. During
these few years, Xun Er had clearly matured. She was a little less
sentimental compared to the young lady back then, and had gained an
additional indifferent disposition that originated from deep within her
Regardless of how she transformed, there was still one part of her that
remained the same. It was how her still old-well-like heart would began
to ripple when she heard news that was related to that name.
Perhaps it was just as Ling Ying had anticipated back then. A figure
would forever exist deep within Xun Er’s heart. It was difficult to
eliminate this figure even with pressure from the clan head…
Ling Ying sighed within his heart when he clearly heard the anxiety
within Xun Er’s tone. It had been a couple of years but only when Xun
Er listened to anything related to young master Xiao Yan would she truly
become just like an ordinary young lady. Her immobile mountain like
indifference was just like an old demon who had trained for many years,
achieving an unfathomable level. However, she lacked the liveliness that
a young lady ought to have.
Of course, being someone who knew about Xun Er’s position and status,
he naturally understood that it was impossible for her to be like an
ordinary girl. Her status determined that she would not be ordinary. The
man who could match her would definitely also be the most outstanding
person on the continent. It was just that he did not know… if Xiao Yan
could reach this stage.
Although this thought flashed past Ling Ying’s heart, his face revealed
a coddling expression. He smiled and nodded before immediately revealing
some of the news about Xiao Yan that he had spent great effort in order
Xun Er quietly listened to the information that came from Ling Ying’s
mouth. She curled her small lips and her transparent pupils, that seemed
to know how to speak, gently flicked.
“It is unexpected that Xiao Yan ge-ge has also reached the Dou Huang
class within a short four years. This really surprises Xun Er…”
“Yan Alliance… it is really a good name. It is unexpected that Xiao
Yan ge-ge was really able to replace the Misty Cloud Sect.”
Xun Er’s exquisite face revealed an elegant smile after Ling Ying
gradually completed his tale. Her hand parted the black hair which had
drifted over the front of her forehead as she spoke faintly, “It is
really unexpected that the ‘Hall of Souls’ really did make a move.
That mister Yao Chen interacted with me back then. Perhaps he should be
aware of my status, but I am not sure if he told Xiao Yan ge-ge about
“I don’t think so. He should clearly understand that it will not
benefit young master Xiao Yan for the latter to know about your status
too soon.” Ling Ying voiced his thoughts.
“Old Ling, try to dispatch some people to search for the whereabouts of
the ‘Hall of Souls’. It seems that they intervened in the matter of
uncle Xiao back then.” Xun Er turned her head and spoke with a somewhat
Ling Ying hesitated for a moment after hearing this. He said, “Alright.
I will carry this matter out quietly and try my best to find them.
However, the ‘Hall of Souls’ is also extremely mysterious. Other than
a couple of people who know the location of their headquarters, there is
hardly anyone, even people in our clan, who know about it. This is
despite us having fought countless numbers of big and small battles with
Xun Er slightly nodded. She lowered her eyes and a coldness suddenly
flashed past her elegant eyes. She slowly spoke in her heart, “Hall of
Souls… although you really want to obtain the ‘Tou She Ancient
God’s Jade’ that belongs to the Xiao clan, you better not hurt him.
Otherwise… no matter what happens, I will let all of you pay a price
that you will have difficulty enduring!”
A golden flame suddenly surged in Xun Er’s eyes at the end of her
words. An enormous rock by the side quietly vanished into nothingness
amid a strange fluctuation after the flame appeared!
Ling Ying’s heart turned cold when he saw the golden flame appearing in
Xun Er’s eyes. Given his familiarity with her, he naturally knew that
only when she really formed a genuine killing intent or extreme anger in
her heart, the thing that hid deep within her soul would break free from
her body and appear.
Ling Ying did not expect that after not having met for three to four
years, Xun Er’s feelings for Xiao Yan would not blur but instead become
increasingly deeper and thicker with the flow of time.
“Ugh, perhaps even that little fellow doesn’t know just what kind of
great blessing he has obtained. If news of a person who could cause
xiao-jie (Young Miss) to put in her heart were spread, it is likely that
your Yan Alliance along with the Jia Ma Empire would be completely
destroyed overnight. Hence, you should put in great effort to train for
xiao-jie’s (Young Miss) sake. The current you might have already
reached the Dou Huang class, but this is still insufficient…” Ling
Ying let out a long sigh in his heart while he quietly muttered.
“That’s right…” Ling Ying appeared to have suddenly recalled
something. His expression changed a little as his gaze stared at Xun Er.
He carefully said, “According to what I know, the clan has finally
decided to dispatch someone to hurry over to the Jia Ma Empire to look
for that ‘key’ in the hands of the Xiao clan. This happened after a
couple of discussions because xiao-jie (Young Miss) did not obtain the
‘key’ from the Xiao clan.”
“Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!”
A frightening aura suddenly erupted in front of Ling Ying after his words
had just sounded. His body was shaken until he swiftly pulled back. His
face was involuntarily shocked when he lifted it.
At this moment, Xun Er’s feet were three feet from the ground. Her face
was ice-cold while a bright-golden flame appeared to be revolving around
her body like a liquid. While that golden-flame flowed, the surrounding
mountain rocks began to gradually disappear in a strange manner. That
manner was as though they were being swallowed by some invisible enormous
Xun Er’s face was as cold as snow. She glanced at Ling Ying but did not
speak. After which, she twisted her waist and suddenly rushed to the
bottom of the mountain.
Ling Ying widened his mouth as he watched Xun Er’s figure swiftly
vanish. He immediately shook his head with a bitter smile. His eyes
rested on the distant horizon. He bitterly laughed, “Little fellow, you
are the first damn person that the old me has seen who is able to get
xiao-jie (Young Miss) to do things to such an extent… the first
