Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-788
The bald-headed Snake-Person stared at the jade-green fire lotus that
lingered in front of Xiao Yan with eyes that were unusually solemn. He
clearly understood from the completely still gaze of Xiao Yan that if he
really took another step forward, the fire lotus, that contained a
frightening wild and violent energy, would definitely be shot over.
“Brat, you really are worthy of being the chief of the Yan Alliance.
You do have some skill…”
The bald-headed Snake-Person licked his lips and laughed. However, the
slighting attitude from earlier had vanished from his current tone. Now,
he somewhat began to believe the rumors in the tribe that Xiao Yan was
able to defeat an expert Dou Zong. This exquisite fire lotus did caused a
fear to seep out from deep within his soul.
“I do not wish to fight with you. Please pass a message to Medusa.”
Xiao Yan raised his eyes, lifted his hand, and continued to hold the jade
green fire lotus in his palm. He glanced at the Snake-Person before
speaking in a faint voice.
“The tribe leader is undertaking a retreat. No one can randomly disturb
her.” The bald-headed Snake-Person shook his head and laughed.
Xiao Yan knit his brows. He did not say anything. He simply flicked his
finger. The fire lotus in his hand suddenly flew toward the bald-headed
Snake-Person. It carried a fire tail along the way and appeared like a
tiny falling star.
The bald-headed Snake-Person’s face involuntarily changed upon seeing
that Xiao Yan had actually launched the fire lotus, that contained a
frightening energy, without any hesitation. He swung his tail and swiftly
However, no matter how his body dodged, that jade-green fire lotus
followed close behind, seeming to possess a tracking device.
Hence a comical scene appeared in that open ground. One of the strongest
people greatly respected within the Snake-People’s eyes was actually
being chased by that small jade-green flame until he was dodging all over
the place. This scene caused the surrounding Snake-People to look at each
other. The eyes that they used to look at Xiao Yan, who was slightly
moving his hand, carried a vague aghast look.
“Dammit, are you done?” The bald-headed Snake-Person dodged once
again before throwing his gaze at the fire lotus that Xiao Yan had shot
over. He furiously roared out.
The fire lotus came to a slow stop. Finally, it remained suspended in the
air around two to three meters away from the bald-headed Snake-Person.
The high temperature that was being emitted from it caused dense droplets
of perspiration to appear on the forehead of that bald Snake-Person.
“Can First Commander help pass the message now?” Xiao Yan faintly
“You…” The bald-headed First Commander grit his teeth, but he
immediately glanced at the slowly rotating fire lotus a short distance in
front of him. His heart shuddered. If this thing were to explode, he
might end up keeping his life but living after that would be nothing good.
The bald-headed First Commander struggled for a moment before finally
giving up. He spoke fiercely toward Xiao Yan before his body flashed as
he traveled to the stone stairs. After which, he swiftly rushed into the
Xiao Yan smiled when he saw the bald-headed First Commander fleeing so
agilely. He beckoned with his hand and the fire lotus which the latter
greatly feared obediently shot back. After which, it remained suspended
above his hand before it transformed into a cluster of jade-green flame
amid an unusual ripple. The flame entered his body.
Xiao Yan ignored those many curious and respectful gazes after having
returned the fire lotus to his body. He slowly shut his eyes and quietly
waited for Medusa to appear.
The bored Zi Yan by Xiao Yan’s side was observing all around her with
curious eyes. Perhaps it was because she was unhurt after having received
a punch from the First Commander earlier, but the surrounding
Snake-People were extremely courteous to her. They revealed a friendly
smile when they saw her looking over.
The two of them quietly waited. Around ten minutes after the bald-headed
Snake-Person entered the deep mountains, two rays of light swiftly rushed
out from within. Finally, they stayed suspended in the sky above the open
ground before they steadily landed.
The surrounding Snake-People and guards in the open ground respectfully
bowed upon seeing the light figure at the front.
“Why do you have time to come and look for me in the Snake-People Tribe
today?” The only one who was able to possess such prestige within the
Snake-People Tribe was naturally Medusa. Her eyes looked at Xiao Yan and
Zi Yan after having landed. She involuntarily inquired with some surprise.
“Cai Lin jie (elder sister).” Zi Yan jumped for joy when she saw
She immediately ran toward her, knocking into the latter’s embrace when
she did so.
Medusa’s delicate hand rubbed Zi Yan’s small head and a moving smile
was revealed on her face. This extremely rare smile caused the
bald-headed First Commander by the side to turn dull after seeing it.
“Cai Lin jie, this bald person actually dared to attack me just now. If
Zi Yan had not already advanced to the Dou Huang class, it is likely that
he would have killed me with that one punch.” Zi Yan’s head nestled
in Medusa’s embrace before suddenly pointing at the First Commander by
her side as she angrily spoke.
The forehead of Xiao Yan and the First Commander began to reveal some
perspiration when they saw this act of Zi Yan. This little fellow
actually dared to complain.
Medusa gently patted Zi Yan head. After which, her pretty eyes
indifferently glanced at the bald-headed First Commander by her side. The
latter’s body immediately stiffened as he dryly laughed, “Tribe
leader, there was a misunderstanding earlier. I merely wanted to test
Xiao Yan’s skills and did not intend to attack this cute little girl.”
From the manner in which Medusa treated Zi Yan, the bald-headed First
Commander naturally understood how close the relationship between the two
of them was. He immediately began to fawn with his words.
However, he did not notice that Medusa’s brows immediately knit
slightly after he had spoken. She waved her delicate hand and spoke in an
indifferent voice, “Xiao Yan is a Snake-People Tribe guest that the
Elders have acknowledged. How can you just attack him as you wish? Go to
the Snake Cave by yourself and come out one month later.”
The bald-headed First Elder’s expression became dull when he heard
this. However, he did not dare to resist and could only weakly nod his
“You should leave first.” Medusa dismissed the bald-headed First
Commander before pulling Zi Yan as she slowly walked toward Xiao Yan. She
lifted her pretty eyes slightly and asked, “Is something the matter?”
Xiao Yan rubbed his head when he saw Medusa’s calm face. He helplessly
said, “I wish to obtain your help. Little Fairy Doctor has sent
information over that she has discovered traces of someone from the
‘Hall of Souls’ in the Chu Yun Empire. Hence…”
“Do you have some information about that person from the ‘Hall of
Souls’? For example his strength?” Medusa voiced her thoughts.
“No. However, I think that with the three of us together, we should be
able to restrain that Protector Wu even if we meet him again.” Xiao Yan
shook his head as he replied. He had already successfully advanced to the
Dou Huang class. He would no longer need to stake his life and go all out
like he did back then when facing an elite Dou Zong. Moreover, he
currently not only had Medusa, but also Little Fairy Doctor, who was not
any inferior to her. This lineup could likely be considered quite strong
even on the Dou Qi continent.
Medusa’s eyes slightly moved. She spoke somewhat uneasily, “This
could indeed be considered true. However, I am uneasy about that Little
Fairy Doctor. Moreover, this time around, we are entering deep into the
Chu Yun Empire. That place is her territory. If she wished to play a
Xiao Yan could only roll his eyes within his heart when she heard this.
It was indeed not easy to resolve enmity that was formed between women.
It seemed that he would need quite a lot of time to get Medusa to trust
Little Fairy Doctor.
“Forget it, since you trust her, we will do as you say. Otherwise, you
will blame me for being narrow-minded in your heart.” The corner of
Medusa’s lips curled when she saw Xiao Yan’s bitter smile. After
which she waved her hand and spoke in a faint voice.
Xiao Yan was startled when he saw Medusa lift her delicate hand. He
involuntarily extended his hand and grabbed it. He frowned upon seeing a
scar on her arm that had been hidden by her sleeves before asking, “You
are injured? What happened?”
A sleek redness surfaced on Medusa’s bewitching face when her hand was
grabbed by Xiao Yan in front of so many tribesmen. She hurriedly withdrew
it and said, “It is a small injury. We want to built a tribe in this
place that is close to the Magical Beast Mountain Range and naturally
needed to move land and trees. In the end, we attracted quite a number of
powerful Magical Beasts. This is caused by a Magical Beast that clawed at
me in my carelessness during battle.”
“Why did you not send someone to the Yan Alliance to look for me? With
the Yan Alliance’s current strength, it is sufficient to create a safe
area for you.” Xiao Yan frowned as he responded
“It is not as though I cannot settle these issues. There is no need to
trouble all of you…” Medusa vaguely smiled. She felt a faint warmth
flowing from Xiao Yan at this moment and her heart was somewhat
“When are we leaving?” Medusa did not wish to be entangled on this
topic for long. She changed the topic and asked a question.
“As soon as possible.” Xiao Yan replied in a deep voice.
“In that case, wait for me for awhile. I will address some of the
issues within the clan and follow you.” Medusa did not hesitate eve a
little when she heard this. She nodded and turned her body only to be
grabbed by Xiao Yan. She was able to hear a soft voice being transmitted
from the other party’s mouth while she was feeling stunned.
Medusa was startled when she heard this word. She immediately smiled and
said, “Just treat this as a reward for you helping me refine the
‘Heaven Soul Blood Bone Pill’.” She moved her delicate hand after
speaking and fled from Xiao Yan’s grip. After which, she rushed to a
Meeting Room within the tribe.
Xiao Yan softly sighed as he looked at Medusa’s back. His heart was
filled with a complicated feeling. The danger of their current trip to
the Chu Yun Empire was something that was needless to say. Moreover, the
Jia Ma Empire had gradually become peaceful and the Snake-People Tribe
had recently moved. There was definitely many things changing in her
tribe. Yet, she still did not reject…
Xiao Yan’s heart was not made of stone. He also felt faintly moved in
his heart when the other party put in all this effort.
Xiao Yan let out a long sigh from his mouth. He patted Zi Yan’s head
but his heart was somewhat chaotic. She had helped him too much…
Medusa did not take too much time to settle some issues. After about half
an hour, she had appropriately settled everything. She swiftly left the
Snake-People Tribe ground with Xiao Yan and Zi Yan. They began to fly
toward the border of the empire.
There was quite some distance to the border of the empire. Even with the
speed of Xiao Yan’s group, they only managed to reach it in the evening.
