Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-789
Three rays of light flashed over from a distant mountain peak at the
border of the Chu Yun Empire. A moment later, they turned into three
“In front is the Chu Yun Empire. It is rumored that Poison Masters
dominate the interior of this empire. We must be more careful when we act
in the future.” Xiao Yan looked at a vague fortress at the edge of his
sight from a tall vintage point before turning his head to remind Medusa
and Zi Yan.
“Yes.” The two of them nodded. Medusa looked at Zi Yan beside her,
hesitated a little, before saying, “Are you certain that you want to
bring Zi Yan along? This trip to the Chu Yun Empire is not some tour.”
Zi Yan’s small face immediately became anxious when she heard
Medusa’s words. She was unwilling to remain alone in the Jia Ma Empire.
That was so boring.
“Ke ke, relax. Don’t underestimate this little girl. She is also an
expert Dou Huang. Adding her frightening strange strength, she is even
able to contend with ordinary experts at the peak of the Dou Huang class.
Moreover, when it comes to a life and death situation, it is likely that
she has even better skills than the both of us when it comes to
preserving her life.” Xiao Yan rubbed Zi Yan’s head and laughed.
Hearing this, Medusa also recalled that Zi Yan had actually relied on her
Dou Wang class strength to receive a blow from protector Wu back on the
Misty Cloud Mountains. She immediately ceased saying any other things.
She smiled at Zi Yan and said, “In that case, you can follow. However,
I will say this first. You cannot be the least bit mischievous this time
around. You better not touch anything that you should not touch. Most of
the experts from the Chu Yun Empire carry some sort of dirty poison.”
Zi Yan hurriedly nodded her small head when she saw that Medusa was
willing to agree.
“Ke ke, in that case, let’s go. The headquarters of the Poison Sect
is located in a city at the middle of the Chu Yun Empire. There is still
some distance we need to cover to get to that place…” Xiao Yan
Medusa faintly nodded. She immediately pulled Zi Yan and the two of them
swiftly rose into the air. They flew hurriedly toward the Chu Yun Empire
under the cover of the night sky. Xiao Yan followed behind them.
The territory of the Chu Yun Empire was not smaller compared to the Jia
Ma Empire. From a certain point of view, it was even larger than the Jia
Ma Empire. However, this empire was undoubtedly much more chaotic when
compared to the Jia Ma Empire.
Poison Masters, an occupation that was spurned by almost everyone in the
Jia Ma Empire, developed exceptionally well within the Chu Yun Empire.
One could almost see people wearing the robes of a Poison Master within
any single city. The Chu Yun Empire also showed a scene which was rarely
seen within the Jia Ma Empire — the sale of poison.
There were some shops that specialized in the sale of poison in every
single city of this empire. As long as it was something related to
poison, it was possible to purchase them from these places. Things with
greater poison properties would be more expensive.
There was a kind of Dou Qi within the Chu Yun Empire that was many times
more common than any other Dou Qi affinity. The people from the Chu Yun
Empire called it the poison Dou Qi.
The poison Dou Qi was also divided into a countless number of branches
but they were still approximately the same. All of them contained a
lethal poison. Of course, such an unusual poison affinity was naturally
not an ordinary affinity. Instead it was a man-made mutated product. An
ordinary person would have to soak one’s body within poison water and
train in it before one became a Dou Zhe. The poison would slowly seep
into one’s body and finally intertwine with the Dou Qi within one’s
body. After a long time, the originally normal Dou Qi would become a
poison Dou Qi that possessed different kinds of effects!
Compared to ordinary Dou Qi, the lethality of poison Dou Qi would indeed
possess some advantages. However, poison was ultimately poison. This
thing did not differentiate between enemies and oneself. An increase in
training would cause the body to become weaker under the corrosion of the
poison. Unless one was able to advance to an expert Dou Huang, an
ordinary person who practiced a poison affinity Dou Qi would have a much
shorter lifespan compared to an ordinary person.
Having various poisons mixed into one’s body would also result in some
people’s characters deviating from the normal. This also resulted in
the Chu Yun Empire being quite chaotic. Sparing and all out fights were
undoubtedly much more frequent compared to the Jia Ma Empire. Moreover,
perhaps it was because the poison within one’s body might attack
one’s heart at any moment, but the people within the Chu Yun Empire
were a little more crazy when it came to training. This was because
everyone knew that if they did not reach the Dou Huang class, the poison
Dou Qi that they practiced would sooner or later consume this life of
With the pressure from death, the training atmosphere in the Chu Yun
Empire was indeed crazy. It may be the reason why the experts hidden
among the people of the Chu Yun Empire were many times more than that
within the Jia Ma Empire. These experts would seldom join any major
factions. Instead, they would fight alone and go all out to train, hoping
that they could completely escape the poison erosion within their bodies.
On the whole, this empire was clearly more chaotic and dangerous than the
Jia Ma Empire.

Of course, such a degree of chaos was undoubtedly much weaker when
compared to the ‘Black-Corner Region,’ which was without laws. After
all, this place had the Chu Yun Empire imperial family and that enormous
being known as the Poison Sect governing it…
Xiao Yan and the other two used nearly four days before they entered the
middle region of the Chu Yun Empire after traveling a long distance.
The three of them also gained some understanding of the chaos within the
Chu Yun Empire during this journey. This was especially so when they saw
poison fogs randomly brewing all around some battles. The danger of this
empire that was felt in their hearts rose quite a bit. After
understanding all of this, Xiao Yan’s heart involuntarily marveled at
Little Fairy Doctor’s achievement once again.
Being able to establish an enormous faction that nearly ruled over one
third of the Chu Yun Empire within this chaotic ground would likely have
involved payments with countless amounts of blood. Ordinary gentle
tactics would likely have difficulty reining in any experts with extreme
characters in the Chu Yun Empire. Only bloody methods were the most
effective against them.
Xiao Yan could imagine that the Little Fairy Doctor’s path was likely
filled with numerous corpses for her to be able to develop the Poison
Sect until this stage as a female…
The headquarters of the Poison Sect sat in the middle of the Chu Yun
Empire. There was a city called Sky Poison City located at that place.
This city was completely controlled in the hands of the Poison Sect. It
could be said that this city was the land ruled by the Poison Sect. Even
the imperial family from the Chu Yun Empire did not have the slightest
authority in this place.
This Sky Poison City was regarded by a countless number of Poison Masters
within the Chu Yun Empire as a holy ground in their hearts. Some of the
strongest factions within the Chu Yun Empire, over the generations, would
establish their headquarters in this place and receive the worship of
those Poison Masters from all over the empire.
The Sky Poison City was extremely renowned within the Chu Yun Empire.
Hence, Xiao Yan’s group only needed to randomly inquire about it to
obtain its exact location. With the speed of the three of them, they
spent around a day before arriving at this city that was regarded as a
Xiao Yan’s group stood on a mountain peak outside of the Sky Poison
City. The travel weary group heaved a long sigh of relief. The way the
three dressed had changed a little. Medusa had wore a Doupeng on her
head. Her outstanding appearance had attracted quite a lot of trouble
during this journey of theirs. Medusa naturally did not show even the
slightest mercy to these fellows with ill intent. However, those
troublesome flies continued to arrive. In the end, she could only
helplessly use a Doupeng to hide her face even with the degree of
viciousness in her heart. Their travels had become much smoother once she

“It is unexpected that such a large city is actually controlled by the
Poison Sect… looks like the status of this Poison Sect within the Chu
Yun Empire is much greater than the Yan Alliance within the Jia Ma
Empire.” Xiao Yan praised as he looked at the large city below.
“Your tactics are not as ruthless as hers. If you are willing to kill
all the people within the imperial family and wash various factions with
blood, the Jia Ma Empire could also completely become the land of the Yan
Alliance. Moreover, no one would dare to have the slightest objection.”
Medusa faintly replied.
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly when he heard this. He was really unable to do
“Do we need to enter the city?” Medusa did not linger over this topic
as she randomly inquired.
“There is no need…” Xiao Yan smiled and shook his head. His hand
immediately moved and a gray jade piece appeared in his hand. He gently
pressed it and broke it into powder.
Xiao Yan patted his hand after doing this. He sat cross-legged on the
mountain peak and spoke with a smile, “Next, we’ll wait. She will
“Hopefully it won’t be a group of experts from the Poison Sect.”
Medusa curled her mouth as she responded.
Xiao Yan involuntarily shook his head in a helpless manner upon hearing
this. It seemed that Medusa had quite the grudge with the Little Fairy
Doctor. However, he was helpless when it came to such matters. Perhaps
things would be a little better after the two of them interacted for a
Xiao Yan’s eyes slowly swept over the surroundings of the Sky Poison
City while he thought in this manner in his heart. He let out a deep
breath and gradually clenched his fist. A cold glint surfaced in his
“That fellow from the ‘Hall of Souls’… just you wait!”
A blurry black figure finally appeared in their sight around half an hour
after Xiao Yan’s three men group waited on the mountain peak. Finally,
it flashed a couple of times and appeared in the air above this mountain
