Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-85
Facing dozens of four star Dou Zhe level practitioners wielding steel
rods, the squad of over ten people that had been flaunting their power
suddenly froze. Before they had the chance to escape, those black metal
rods ruthlessly rained down on every part of their bodies. In an instant,
horrible shrills echoed through the entire street.
After throwing a cold glance at the ashen faced Jia Lie Ao, Xiao Yan
tilted his head and faced the furious, red-faced Xiao Yu and asked in a
gentle voice: “Are you alright? You should have informed me that you were
coming over. Recently, this bunch of bastards from the Jia Lie Clan have
been looking to stir up some trouble.”
Being suddenly treated so gently by Xiao Yan for the first time, Xiao Yu
was obviously shocked. The redness on her face grew a shade darker. At a
loss, she randomly shifted her gaze and spoke: “I met Xun Er when I
left the house. She said that she wanted to come and see you so I decided
to accompany her. How was I supposed to know that I would encounter these
Xiao Yan couldn’t help but shake his head. He shifted his gaze to the
young lady clad in green, whose face was full of joy at his appearance.
The smile on his face became even gentler: “You seemed to enjoy cursing
Listening to Xiao Yan making fun of her, Xun Er innocently shook her
head, pursing her lips and saying with a bright smile: “That wasn’t my
intention. It was just that I didn’t like his attitude – Even Xiao Yan
ge-ge back then didn’t dare to openly snatch someone off the street.”
Facing Xun Er’s hidden rebuttal, Xiao Yan touched his nose and smiled
forcefully. He might have been a little arrogant back then, but he could
not be as bad as the man in front of him.
“Oh, isn’t this the young master of the Xiao Clan? Having not seen
you for over a year, I heard that you have finally gotten rid your name,
‘cripple’!” Jia Lie Ao couldn’t help but butt in after seeing
Xiao Yan speak to Xun Er.
“Who is he?” Liu Xi‘s gaze was equally cold. Seeing Xun Er chatting
and laughing with another man after giving him the cold shoulder was a
great blow to the arrogant Liu Xi’s ego. he could not accept this.
“Hehe, Liu Xi Da-ge, this is the Xiao clan’s famous “genius”. His
name is Xiao Yan. Back then, despite training for over ten years, his Dou
Qi remained at only the third or fourth stage. I don’t know what he ate
recently, but his Dou Qi rose quickly to the eighth stage within a few
months.” Jia Lie Ao stood beside Lu Xi and made the introduction with a
“Regardless of how great one’s talent is, if one isn’t even a Dou
Zhe, he is nothing but trash,” Said Liu Xi coldly
Hearing these words, Xun Er’s small face grew even icier. A golden
flame flashed in her limpid eyes.
Reaching out his hand and lightly patting on Xun Er’s stretched, taut
body, Xiao Yan smiled indifferently and shook his head. Turning his head,
Xiao Yan glanced at Liu Xi who was completely dressed in white. His gaze
randomly swept towards his chest where the Alchemist badge resided and
smiled: “You should be the alchemist who refined the potion ‘Return of
Spring Powder’, right?”
Lu Xi coldly smiled and stuck out his chest with the badge, proudly
announcing: “That’s right! I am the alchemist hired by the Jia Lie
Xiao Yan, seemingly having realised something, nodded and laughed, “No
wonder. Only an alchemist like you could refine such a low-grade healing
medicine. You really have been worthy of your master’s teaching!”
Upon hearing Xiao Yan’s words, the surrounding mercenaries promptly
laughed loudly. After having experienced the profiteering ways of the Jia
Lie Clan, these mercenaries held a significant grudge against the creator
of the “Return of Spring Powder”. Seeing that Xiao Yan dared mock the
creator in his face, they felt a little satisfied.
The laughter of those around him resulted in Liu Xi’s face gradually
growing darker. His eyes coldly stared at Xiao Yan: “You are helping
your Xiao Clan offend someone they cannot afford to offend.”
Hearing this, Xiao Yan was a little stunned. He laughed bitterly and
massaged his head, utterly speechless at how arrogant the man was. Did he
really think he was some disciple of a Dou Di? A one star alchemist would
be respected by the Xiao Clan but to say that he was someone the clan
couldn’t afford to offend, that would be a joke.
TL: Dou Di is the highest Dou Rank
“Ai, how did he become an alchemist with such low intelligence?”
Sighing and shaking his head, Xiao Yan, who was a little depressed,
exchanged a glance with Xun Er. After having a brief conversation with
Liu Xi, he finally understood why the gentle and soft Xun Er would
dislike this man so much.
Rubbing his palm gently on his face, Xiao Yan was too lazy to continue
conversing with this obviously stupid person. Waving his hand at the
dozen of large men behind him, he smiled, “Attack! Go after their
master too. Since these people dared to create trouble in our territory,
we do not need to give them any face. Otherwise, we may be laughed at.”
Seeing Xiao Yan’s actions, Jia Lie Ao’s faced changed. He did not
expect Xiao Yan would really attack. Turning his eyes, he insultingly
provoked: “I thought that you had grown quite a bit. To think that you
are still a useless person who only knows how to rely on his
“Your provocations really are rather weak.” Xiao Yan waved the metal
rod in his hand as he spoke quietly.
“If you wish to treat it as a provocation, then consider it one. A
useless person like you doesn’t have the qualification to walk beside
Xun Er Xiao-jie.” Said Jia Lie Ao insultingly. A cold look stealthily
flashed across his eyes as he continued with his evil design: “You
should have undergone the Coming of Age Ceremony, haven’t you? Heh.
That means if I challenge you now, you won’t have any reason to
“You are really shameless. Xiao Yan is only seventeen this year while
you are twenty-three. You actually dare to issue such a challenge. If you
wish to play, I am willing to accompany you!” Xiao Yu rebuked Jia Lie
Ao challenge. Her eyebrows straightened and she lashed out with her whip,
leaving a thin white scar on the ground.
The corner of his mouth twitched slightly as Jia Lie Ao provokingly said:
“You seem to have quite good luck with women.Yet another woman has come
forward to stand up for you. Heh, you are but a coward who only knows how
to hide behind women.”
“Dammit, this white face is too cocky. Young Master, I will play with
him in your place: ” Watching the overbearing Jia Lie Ao, some of the
surrounding mercenaries who had a better relationship with Xiao Yan
Seeing that his words had stirred up such a large commotion, Jia Lie
Ao’s face changed. His strength was that of a three star Dou Zhe and
was a little overwhelmed at offending such a large crowd.
Glancing at the expressionless Xiao Yan, Jia Lie Ao brushed his sleeves
and coldly said: “Since you don’t have the guts to accept the
challenge, then let’s forget about it. Liu Xin Da-ge, let’s go. A
person who did not dare to accept such a challenge doesn’t deserve any
Liu Xi nodded his head while wearing a shady smile. His gaze covertly
landed on Xun Er for a moment before furiously glaring at Xiao Yan and
threatening: “Brat, just you wait. I will have the Xiao Clan
voluntarily send her over to me. Amongst all the woman who had caught my
eye, there was not a single one whom I cannot get my hands on.”
Xun Er indifferently glared at Liu Xi, whose face was filled with
obscenity. Within her eyes, a killing intent finally emerged.
Jia Lie Ao and Lu Xi turned around but a couple of haughty large men from
the Xiao Clan appeared at the entrance of the marketplace and barricaded
“I know that you really wish to cripple me. Em, alright. Let’s
fulfill your wish… I accept your challenge.” Just as Jia Lie Ao was
about to send a signal for help, a young man’s indifferent voice
suddenly rang out from behind him.
Hearing this, Jia Lie Ao was first stunned before a sinister smile
appeared. The corner of his mouth slowly lifted as he whispered:
“It’s you who seeks death. Don’t blame me if anything happens.”
