Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-815
Xiao Yan led the Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan as they flew at a low
altitude along the route from his memory. When they passed by some
‘Black-Corner Region’ city along the way, they would land and pass
through them by foot. They would pause for a moment at some auction
houses and medicinal shops while crossing the cities in an attempt to
search for the ingredients that they needed.
The speed of Xiao Yan’s group was naturally much slower because of
this. However, they also avoided much trouble. Xiao Yan tried to inquire
about some news of ‘Xiao Gate’ along the way, but perhaps because
this was the outer region of the ‘Black-Corner Region’, there was no
detailed news about them despite many people having heard about this new
faction that had suddenly risen within the last couple of years.
Therefore, Xiao Yan felt quite helpless. Nevertheless, he was able to
tell that ‘Xiao Gate’ did not meet too much trouble from the news
that he had obtained. This caused him to sigh in relief.
Since he had learned that ‘Xiao Gate’ was fine, Xiao Yan was in no
hurry to get there. He led the Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan along the
many cities as he gathered some information about the few necessary
ingredients needed to control the ‘Woeful Poison Body’. Moreover,
Xiao Yan was extremely interested in the large scale auctions that this
‘Black-Corner Region’ held because of the ‘Purifying Demonic Lotus
Flame’ map fragment that he had obtained from an auction the last time.
He also inquired about these auctions while gathering information.
Xiao Yan’s three men group spent over ten days traveling and gathering
information in this manner. They gradually arrived in the middle region
of the ‘Black-Corner Region’. It was in this place that Xiao Yan
luckily obtained some information regarding a large scale auction.
Almost every city within this ‘Black-Corner Region’ would frequently
hold an auction. However, the size of these individual auctions held were
not big. Hence, it was difficult for them to attract Xiao Yan’s
attention. However, every once in awhile, there would be some extremely
powerful factions within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ who would join
hands with some other factions to gather many auction items together.
Finally, they would hold a large-scale joint auction. The size of these
auctions could basically be considered a big matter in the
‘Black-Corner Region’. The grade and rarity of the auction items was
enough to attract a countless number of experts and factions within the
The things that were auctioned in these places were far from what the
Primer clan within the Jia Ma Empire could contend with. By just
recalling how Xiao Yan’s Three Thousand Lightning Movement, a Di class
agility Dou Skill that even an expert Dou Huang coveted, was taken out at
such an auction allowed one to tell just what kind of weight this kind of
The Primer clan’s auctions would at the very most attract the attention
of some expert Dou Wangs. It did not possess much attraction to someone
like Xiao Yan. However, this kind of large scale auction in the
‘Black-Corner Region’ was different. It was not surprising that the
experts that were attracted by such auctions included those of the Dou
The auction which Xiao Yan had heard about this time around was held in a
city called the Black Emperor City, which was located on the western side
of the ‘Black-Corner Region’. The owner of this city was the ‘Black
The Black Emperor Sect was quite renowned within the ‘Black-Corner
Region’. However, it was different from the other factions. It usually
kept an exceptionally low profile when it did things. Its sect leader
also did not enter the ‘Black-Corner Region’ Black Ranking. However,
there were extremely few factions who had gone to the region where the
Black Emperor Sect ruled and provoked them. This sect had stood for quite
a long time within the ‘Black-Corner Region’. It was rumored that the
Gold Silver Elders were quite polite when meeting with this sect leader,
who kept a low profile. From this, one could tell that this person’s
strength was definitely extraordinary.
The ‘Black-Corner Region’ was filled with various hidden tigers and
dragons. These words were indeed true. This so-called Black Ranking did
indeed possess some quality, but it did not encompass everyone. The true
experts in this chaotic region mostly chose to hide…
Xiao Yan mused for a moment when he heard that the Black Emperor Sect was
about to hold a large-scale auction. After which, he chose to head to the
Black Emperor City. He possessed a lot of interest for such a large-scale
auction. If he was lucky, he might even be able to obtain the news of the
last map fragment when he was there. Even if he could not obtain news
about the map, such a large-scale auction would end up gathering experts
from all over the place. That place would definitely be extremely rich
with information. Should he be lucky, he might even be able to obtain
some information about a ‘Heavenly Flame’ or one of the three kinds
of ingredients needed to control the ‘Woeful Poison Body’.
Xiao Yan did not delay any longer once he made his decision. After
purchasing a map of the ‘Black-Corner Region’ at a high price, he led
the Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan out of the city, and rushed to that
so-called Black Emperor City.
The ‘Black-Corner Region’ was extremely vast. Its area was something
that even the sum of the Jia Ma Empire and Chu Yun Empire could not
compare with. This large region that was filled with chaos naturally
groomed many strong people. Even with Xiao Yan’s strength, he needed to
be a little cautious when wandering around this place. Although he had
caused quite a number of factions from the ‘Black-Corner Region’ to
suffer losses in his hands back then, those were only but a small portion
present. With the growth in Xiao Yan’s strength, his field of vision
had also become much grander. Hence, he was clearly aware that in a place
like the ‘Black-Corner Region’, it was naturally impossible for the
strength of the Gold Silver Elders to be the strongest. The truly
frightening people were the people who kept a low profile…
Therefore, one must remain cautious when dealing with anything in the
Three human figures walked slowly down a small, lush, green mountain
forest path. The black-robed, young man in front held a piece of green
grass within his mouth. His arms were crossed behind his head while his
face was a lazy one. He allowed the warm sunlight that scattered down
from the sky to shine on him through the gaps between the leaves.
“Xiao Yan, just how far away is this damn broken city?” The
purple-haired, little girl behind the young man scrunched up her small
face while she furiously questioned.
“Soon.” The young man who was chewing the grass that contained a
slight bitterness replied in a lazy manner.
“You have already said these words for more than ten times!” Zi Yan
immediately erupted upon hearing these words. She leaped on Xiao Yan and
hung onto him like a sloth while she bit randomly.
The girl wearing a white-colored dress by the side smiled when she saw Zi
Yan’s action. She immediately and involuntarily shook her head.
“Little girl, walking is also a form of training. Don’t keep thinking
of flying all day.” Xiao Yan glanced at Zi Yan, who was hanging on his
body. He ignored her as his footsteps kept a steady pace while his mouth
“Who wants to commit to such boring training? The best training is for
you to give me those medicinal ingredients that I have found.” Zi Yan
indignantly responded. She had found quite a number of rare medicinal
ingredients during this half a year. In the end, all of them had been
seized by this detestable fellow. Moreover, he even euphemistically said
that one should make the best use of things.
Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders. He was just about to speak when his
footsteps suddenly paused. His dark-black eyes narrowed as he glanced at
the distant mountain woods.
“What is it?” Zi Yan uncertainly asked while blinking her large eyes
when she saw Xiao Yan paused.
“There is someone in front who is heading toward this place. It appears
that they are fleeing.” The Little Fairy Doctor casually mentioned. She
looked at Xiao Yan when she spoke. She seemed to be waiting for his
“There is no need to get involved. We will continue walking on our
own.” Xiao Yan vaguely smiled. Everyday, vengeful killings would play
out within this ‘Black-Corner Region’. He did not have the interest
to go and rescue every one of them.
Two worn figures appeared on the edge of the small path within the
mountain forest in a miserable manner while Xiao Yan’s three man group
was conversing. Numerous black figures appeared not far behind them. The
dense killing intent was transmitted over despite them being far apart.
Xiao Yan finally saw the two figures as they fled even more intensely.
They were one man and one woman. The man was around thirty years old
while the woman was but a young lady.
The man’s footsteps were staggering and his body showed some traces of
blood. Clearly, he was injured. That young lady who was wearing a
pale-purple dress appeared a little better. However, that exquisitely
moving face of hers was filled with panic at this moment.
Perhaps it was because of the injuries, but the man’s footsteps were
sloppy while he was fleeing; therefore he nearly fell down. The young
lady hurriedly lifted him up. A pair of sparkling, large eyes revealed
some moisture because of her panic.
The many black figures behind suddenly closed the gap while these two
people were delayed in this manner. Dark and cold killing intent caused
the backs of these two people to be filled with dense cold sweat.
The man grit his teeth. He turned his head to glance at the people
closing in on them. Despair involuntarily surfaced in his heart. Just
when this despair surfaced, his eyes coincidentally saw the three human
figures not far in front of him. He immediately grabbed hold of the last
straw and hurriedly cried out, “Friends in front. Please lend a hand
and rescue us. We will definitely reward you heavily after this!”
The group of people giving chase suddenly increased their speed when this
cry was emitted. Finally, they flashed and encircled the two.
Coincidentally, Xiao Yan’s three people group was also within this
“Tsk tsk, you are still thinking of fleeing?” A black-clothed person
looked down at the miserable pair from a higher vantage point as he
laughed in a strange manner.
The hopelessness in the eyes and heart of the man grew even denser
following the sealing off of his escape path. Immediately, he could only
throw his eyes, that were crying for help, to Xiao Yan’s three people
Xiao Yan’s eyes glanced at the man. His gaze immediately swept over the
purple-clothed, young lady by the side. Although the latter’s forehead
was covered by a thread of black hair, any sharp-eyed person could tell
with a glance that this young lady was quite a beauty. Once she matured
over time, it was likely that she would cause quite a number of men to
grovel under her skirt. Unfortunately, however… she would not have
“Little fellow, the roads under the sky are very wide and we can each
take one side. Please do not meddle in another’s business!” The
black-clothed people also discovered Xiao Yan’s three people group. The
eyes of the man who had spoken earlier chilled as he spoke in a deep
“I am only passing by…” Xiao Yan faintly replied. After which, his
gaze was withdrawn from the hopeful eyes of the purple-clothed, young
lady. His expression was indifferent as he avoided them.
The faces of the man and young lady instantly turned pale-white when they
saw Xiao Yan’s action. The latter tightly clenched her silver teeth and
viciously stared at Xiao Yan’s back. She seemed to be unable to
understand why this person who was quite handsome was such a coward.
The surrounding black-clothed people were extremely satisfied with this
tactful action of Xiao Yan. All of them laughed in a strange manner.
“This friend, we are people from the Jia Nan Academy. Please lend a
hand and rescue us. This matter is of great importance. The academy will
definitely provide a satisfactory reward after this!” That man seemed
to be unwilling to give up as he cried out once again.
“Instructor Mai Di, don’t beg him. He will not help. Do you actually
expect that this kind of cowardly indifferent person would chase away
these fellows?” The purple-clothed, young lady by the side clenched her
silver teeth as she replied.
Unexpectedly, Xiao Yan, who was about to exit the encirclement of the
black-clothed people, suddenly paused his footsteps when the man’s
