Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-89
The silver moon hung high in the sky, emitting a faint moonlight that
covered the ground in a silvery layer that gave it a mysterious look.
After the disturbance in the day, Wu Tan City had become dark and quiet
in the night. From within the houses on some streets, there was only the
occasional sound of nightly activities
In a room in the backyard of the Xiao clan’s home, a young man was
lying on the bed. His eyes, as dark as the night sky, were filled with a
“Teacher, what is your strength in your current state?” After a long
quietness, Xiao Yan abruptly asked in a soft voice.
“Why?” The black ring that he wore emitted a random response. A
moment later, Yao Lao vaguely said: “Although I am currently in my soul
form, I should have no problem handling some small flies like Da Dou Shis
or Dou Lings with my heavenly flame.”
Hearing this, a slight happiness appeared on Xiao Yan’s face. His eyes,
however, still carried a coldness.
“You wish to kill the boy from the afternoon?” Seeing Xiao Yan’s
behaviour, Yao Lao asked with surprise.
“Jia Lie Ao isn’t deserving of such effort.” Xiao Yan smiled and
whispered. “Two months is fast approaching and I am losing my patience
to drag out the competition with the Jia Lie clan. Thus, I am hoping to
secretly kill the alchemist called Liu Xi. Once he dies, the Jia Lie clan
without any healing medicine will lose their remaining market share. Once
that happens, even if their clan can continue surviving, their strength
would have greatly declined and will no longer be able to threaten the
“Oh. Have you really lost your patience? Seeing your character, you
don’t appear to be an impulsive person.” After a brief silence, Yao
Lao’s joking voice escaped from the ring. “It seems that you care a
lot for the girl called Xun Er. All that guy did was to act a little
dirty yet you bear such a deep grudge. What a jealous child.”
Hearing this, Xiao Yan’s face warmed. The shame of having his thoughts
so easily revealed arose his anger. “From the start, I did not have
much time. How can I continue to play with them. Even if I had not met
that guy today, I would have started using some tricks.”
“Alright, alright. It has nothing to do with the girl…” Watching
Xiao Yan’s manner, Yao Lao laughed loudly. The mocking tone in his
laugher caused Xiao Yan to roll his eyes helplessly.
“Since you wish to take action, let’s get going. I am just a soul so
I’ll need to borrow your hands.” Yao Lao ceased his laughter and said.
Hurriedly nodding his head, Xiao Yan quickly jumped off his bed. He took
out a red storage ring from his breast pocket and retrieved a large black
cloak which he had prepared beforehand. He pulled it over his body in a
practiced manner and the thin body of the young man was transformed into
a bloated, mysterious black-cloaked man.
“Let’s go. You need not do anything. Just let me control your body.
With my spirit encompassing you, you need not worry about anyone
recognising you from your scent.” Seeing the well-prepared Xiao Yan,
Yao Lao gave a smiling reminder.
“Ah.” Nodding his head, Xiao Yan easily reached the side of the
window and scanned his surroundings like a thief. Only then did he jump
out and his body quickly descended. Following which, a mysterious strong
strength was emitted from the ring on his finger.
The mysterious strength quickly encompassed Xiao Yan’s entire body.
Immediately, the rapidly falling figure suddenly floated in midair.
Stepping lightly off a roof, his black figure was like an eagle, silently
speeding out of the Xiao clan’s home and disappearing into the dark
The dark and windy night presented a good opportunity to kill.
Jia Lie clan.
“Mister Liu is really able to refine other medicine?” In the well-lit
hall, the originally anxious Jia Lie Bi was initially stunned upon
hearing Liu Xi’s pleased announcement before asking happily.
Extremely satisfied with Jia Lie Bi’s surprised manner, Liu Xi lifted
the tea cup beside him and took a sip. The expression on his face was
very proud. “Besides healing medicine, I am able to refine something
that’s very suited for the mercenaries’ use. The drug’s called
“Explosive Strength Pill”. It can raise the strength of the user by
ten percent for a short period of time.”
Hearing this, the happiness on Jia Lie Bi’s face grew . If a drug with
such effect could be refined, he could use it as an advertisement to
attract quite a lot of people. He might even be able to once again
suppress the Xiao clan.
“Unfortunately, this “Explosive Strength Pill” cannot be refined in
bulk like the healing medicine. With my current ability, I am afraid I
can only refine twenty pills a day.” Liu Xi said in a regretful voice.
“Haha, twenty pills it is. We can create something like an auction,
where the highest bidder will get it. In any case, the healing medicine
is the main aim. We are only using this to raise our popularity.” Jia
Lie Bi waved his hand and said with a smile.
“Hey. Clan Leader Jia Lie, I am indeed able to make this “Explosive
Strength Pill”, but according to our agreement, I am only responsible
for making the healing medicine.” Seeing how the “Explosive Strength
Pill” had attracted Jia Lie Bi, a thought struck Liu Xi and he abruptly
Jia Lie Bi’s face suddenly changed. The crafty man knew what the guy
was planning. However, at this stage, all he could do was to laugh dryly
and ask: “What is Mister Liu Xi’s meaning?”
“Haha, relax. I know what kind of situation the Jia Lie clan is in
right now so I won’t ask for much.” Watching a relaxed Jia Lie Bi, a
sinister smile flashed across Liu Xi’s eyes. “All I want is Clan
Leader Jia Lie to help me get hold of the lady called Xun Er.”
Before a smile could appear, Jia Lie Bi’s face stiffened. The corner of
his eye twitched. He had not expected that this guy, who was strongly
driven by sexual urges, would actually directly target the Xiao clan.
“Mister Liu Xi, if our Jia Lie clan touched a member of the Xiao clan,
Xiao Zhan would have the excuse to openly attack us. By then, it would
not be just a business confrontation but actual violence…“ Sighing,
Jia Lie Bi smiled bitterly,
Tapping his finger on the table, Liu Xi quietly said: “This is not a
matter for me to consider. I don’t care if Clan Leader plans to
forcefully snatch or stealthily drug her. All I care about is the result.
As long as you can bring her to me, I will begin to refine the
“Explosive Strength Pill”.”
The corner of Jia Lie Bi’s eye twitched. Despite his anger surging, he
could only forcefully laugh: “Can you give me time to think? May I give
you an answer tomorrow?”
“Hee Hee. It’s just as well. Clan Leader, you may think it over.
Before I leave, I would like to add something. The Jia Lie clan and the
Xiao clan have already become irreconcilable enemies, so why do you need
to worry about adding another grudge into the mix?” Laughing
perversely, Liu Xi stood up, patted his backside and swaggered out of the
hall. With hurried footsteps, he headed towards his room in the backyard.
The lotus-like extraordinary young lady from the day had ignited the lust
in him. All he wanted to do now was to find a young and beautiful servant
girl to relieve his lust.
Gazing at Liu Xi who disappeared into a corner, Jia Lie Bi turned even
more gloomy. It was only after a long time that he exhaled a long breath
and thickly said: “This bastard, whose head is full of women, would
sooner or later die at the hands of one.”
In a room at the backyard, Xiao Yan helplessly watched the knocked-out
beautiful lady lying on the bed. Her body was covered only by a thin
robe, exposing much of her naked body.
“That guy’s back.” Yao Lao whispered from within the ring, causing
Xiao Yan to quickly squeeze into a hidden corner. Through a small gap,
his eyes managed to observe everything in the room.
“Creak…” The wooden door was slowly pushed open. Liu Xi discernable
laughter instantly came from within the room. “Ha ha. Precious, I am
here. Prepare to be ruined tonight.”
“What a sperm-filled head idiot. Yao Lao, prepare to strike.” Xiao
Yan said in his heart as he coldly smiled and shook his head.
“Alright… wait, there’s a change!” Yao Lao shouted a warning just
as he was about to agree, resulting in Xiao Yan’s heart tightening.
His forehead was full of perspiration after being frightened by Yao
Lao’s warning yell, Xiao Yan stayed where he was, not daring to move.
“On your left!” Within his heart, Yao Lao’s voice once again
Listening to the warning, Xiao Yan slowly turned his head. His gaze
shifted to the window on his left and his eyes suddenly contracted.
The originally closely-shut window had already been unknowingly opened,
allowing the pale moonlight to scatter into the room. In the blink of an
eye, the emptiness in the window and its surroundings was strangely
replaced by a young lady in a golden dress. Below the golden dress was a
pair of jade-like round and white small feet which drew an attractive arc
Moonlight spilled into the room, shining on the exquisite face of the
young lady. It was just like a goddess under the moonlight, beautiful yet
Gazing at the sudden appearance of the young lady, Xiao Yan felt his
throat becoming dry. His heart softly moaned a name.
“Xun… Xun Er?”
