Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-93
Seven or eight horse drawn carriages slowly trotted down the road under
the scorching sun of the noontide heat. In its overbearing heat, the
guards all around the carts were drenched in a fine mist of sweat and
agitated voices drifted out from the carriages.
Part of the escort team was Jia Lie Nu, a three star Da Dou Shi and one
of the two elders of the Jia Lie Clan, was considered one of the
strongest within Wu Tan City. With his strength, having him personally
escort the medicinal ingredients highlighted the importance they held to
the clan. However, it would seem that Jia Lie Nu had received no news of
the disappearance of Liu Xi, otherwise the elder would’ve immediately
returned the expensive ingredients.
Jia Lie Nu sat crossed leg on one of the horse drawn carriages.
Regardless of how much the carriages tossed and shook, his body did not
move. Having lived in luxury and comfort for some time, he was growing
impatient after two days of travel.
“It’s all because of that damn Xiao Clan. Sooner or later, I will
destroy all of you.” Jia Lie Nu clenched his teeth and muttered
angrily. He then turned his head slightly and observed the neatly-stacked
medicinal ingredients through a window behind him. A look of helplessness
appeared on his expressionless face.
Although storage rings would certainly make transportation more
convenient, a low-grade ring only had two or three cubic meters worth of
space and in order to fully store all the medicinal ingredients it would
have required at least five low-grade storage rings. These rings were
rare and expensive, and even the entire Jia Lie Clan had two. Thus, they
could only use the cumbersome method of carriages to transport the
Tiredly blinking his eyes, Jia Lie Nu, who had began napping, realised
that the carriage at the front had suddenly stopped. Faint angry shouts
vibrated through the air.
Furrowing his eyebrows, Jia Lie Nu was about to call someone to
investigate what happened, when a guard of the Jia Lie clan came hurrying
from the front. He urgently reported, “Elder, there is a black-cloaked
man blocking our path.”
Hearing this, Jia Lie Nu’s face darkened. Now that they have entered
the territory of Wu Tang City, who would dare block them?
With a cold glint appearing in his eyes, Jia Lie Nu nodded his head
slightly and hopped off the horse carriage. He swiftly progressed in the
direction of the convoy and finally saw a black-cloaked man sitting on a
huge rock in the middle of the road. Although he could not see the
black-cloaked man’s face, he could feel the ill intention from the gaze
of the black-cloaked man.
“Who are you? Why are you blocking our path?” Jia Lie Nu’s gaze
swept across the black-cloaked man before asking in a deep voice.
“You must be members of the Jia Lie Clan, no?” An aged voice escaped
from below the black cloak.
Jia Lie Nu’s face twitched. With a somber expression, he waved his arm.
The dozens of guards behind him immediately drew their weapons from their
waist and stared inhospitably at the unknown and mysterious black-cloaked
“Well, it seems that I was right.” Looking at the reaction from Jia
Lie Nu, the black cloaked man simply smiled and leaped from the huge rock
before strolling over to the convoy.
Coldly watching the approaching black-cloaked man, Jia Lie Nu grabbed a
huge bow and arrow from the guard beside him. He pulled at the bowstring
and the bow bent like a cord. Upon release, the arrow transformed into a
ferocious wind and shot towards the black-cloaked man’s throat.
Accompanying the arrow was a frightening whistle of breaking wind. When
it was one meter away from the black-cloaked man however, a group of
white flames appeared suddenly, turning the arrow into black ashes as
soon as it touched the flame.
Watching the scene before him, Jia Lie Nu’s face changed color. An
uneasiness began rising from within him. It appeared that the
black-cloaked man in front of him was not weaker than a Da Dou Shi.
Slowly releasing his breath, Jia Lie Nu grabbed a deep blue long spear
from a guard behind him. A faint blue Dou Qi was emitted from his body.
Instantly, the surrounding air became more humid. Clearly, his Qi Method
was that of the dark and chilly water element.
Grabbing the long spear, Jia Lie Nu stared intently at the black-cloaked
man. He adjusted his body slightly before suddenly jumping off the
ground. His body turned into a blue light, rushing forward and closing in
on the black-cloaked man.
In midair, Jia Lie Nu maintained a respectful face as the long spear
suddenly and violently shook. The Dou Qi on it shone brilliantly. With a
vibration of the spear, echos followed.
“Overlapping Waves” a Low Xuan Dou Technique, was the strongest
technique that Jia Lie Nu could fully control. His long period of
training had allowed him to master this Dou Technique to perfection.
Being released at its full force, the strength was such that even a six
star Da Dou Shi would not dare to underestimate it.
Following the yell from Jia Lie Nu, a huge blue wave comprised of energy
emitted from within the shining blue long rod. The huge wave of energy
rose up high into the sky before abruptly gashing towards the rooted
Around the convoy, proud cheers erupted upon seeing their elder reveal
his god-like strength. Throughout their journey, the group had met a
couple of robbers, but each and everyone of them were all killed under
Jia Lie Nu’s spear. In most people’s eyes, another victim was about
to be added.
The huge blue wave rolled along the horizon. Within it, a tiny light
suddenly expanded. Like lightning, a long spear shot toward the
black-cloaked man’s head.
“Die!” Seeing that the target was almost within reach, a sinister
expression flashed across Jia Lie Nu’s face as he coldly smiled. Energy
gushed uncontrollably from the spear in his hand.
Just as the long rod was about to strike his skull cap, the black-cloaked
man slowly raised his head. The image of a delicate and pretty face was
revealed under the sunlight was imprinted upon Jia Lie Nu’s eyes.
“This… is that rascal from the Xiao Clan?”
Recognizing the familiar face, Jia Lie Nu’s eyes narrowed and his
killing intent grew immediately.
The long spear grew increasingly closer. Just as it was about to make
contact, however, a white flame suddenly flowed from the black-cloaked
man’s body. Finally, it acted as a fire source and swept towards Jia
Lie Nu, who was in midair.
The white flame flashed across the horizon and everyone felt a chill on
their skin. Immediately, the wave, spear, and person.. disappeared.
On the road, the cheers were suddenly halted. The guards of the Jia Lie
Clan, like a duck with its neck broken, widened their mouths and
hyperventilated. The arrogance on their faces slowly transformed into
fear. When their gaze once again fell on the black-cloaked man, the
terror within was much like how one would look at a monster.
Scanning the guards indifferently, the black-cloaked man slowly extended
his hand. A couple of white flames appeared. Jerking his finger, the
flame shot forward and lightly fell on the carriages under the gazes of
With a muffled blast, the horse carriages and the medicinal ingredients
simultaneously caught fire and turned into ashes in front of everyone’s
