Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-940
The Griffon passed through the flat plains and slowly entered the
mountain range. These mountains were filled with lush-green trees. Many
of the giant trees were over a thousand feet tall. Many agile monkeys
were climbing and playing rough with each other within this forest. These
fellows were filled with intellect, and did not hide when they saw a
person. All they did was duly give them a glance. Clearly, they were
already used to seeing passersby. One could see a faint spiritual aura
present on these mountains. It was likely that this place was where the
land veins were located, filling it with sufficient spiritual strength.
It was most suitable for practitioners to train. Xiao Yan’s group did
not stop at this place. They continued to drive the Griffon over a
mountain. Immediately, spacious well-connected roads in the mountain
range appeared within Xiao Yan’s sight. They were even able to see
numerous figures coming and going on the main roads. Despite being this
far apart, Xiao Yan was still able to hear some of the noise that was
transmitted from the ground.
The sky above the mountain range did not contain this single Griffon
belonging to Xiao Yan. They had just entered the mountain range when they
heard the rushing sound of wind some distance away. Immediately, they saw
many different shaped flying beasts flapping their wings, heading to the
interior of the mountain valley. Along the way, some beasts flew close to
Xiao Yan’s group, allowing him to clearly see some human figures seated
aboard the flying beast.
Xiao Yan’s first impression of the entire mountain range was a
flourishing feeling. After all, even in the sky above the ‘Black-Corner
Region,’ it was difficult to find so many flying beasts appearing at
the same time. In this place, it seemed that flying beasts were an
ordinary form of transport. However, most of the flying beasts that they
saw during their journey were rank 1 or 2 Magical Beasts. There were
seldom any existences that exceeded rank 3. Hence, this Griffon of Xiao
Yan’s attracted quite a number of surprised gazes. This was especially
the case when they saw that there were only four people on such a big
flying beast. Those surprised gazes began to reveal additional envy. It
was quite difficult to find a high rank flying beast like the Griffon.
Unless it was a clan or faction which possessed a rich foundation, it was
quite difficult for an ordinary person to tame one.
“It is indeed worthy of being the most prosperous city within a
Xiao Yan did not mind the envious gazes. His mouth emitted a soft sigh as
his foot gently stepped forward. The Griffon let out a clear eagle cry
before immediately flapping its enormous wings, swiftly flying deeper
into the mountain range.
The Griffon flew for over ten minutes or so before an enormous city
faintly appeared behind the cover of the lush, green mountain peaks.
That enormous city was completely absorbed into Xiao Yan’s eyes as he
gradually approached. His gaze carefully observed the city size as he
involuntarily nodded once again.
The Griffon came closer to the ground as Xiao Yan observed the city. Just
when it was about to enter the sky of the city, however, a figure rushed
over from the city gate. It immediately transformed into a yellow-robed
The yellow-robed old man had quite a cold, stern face. A pair of Dou Qi
wings were flapping behind his back as he stood in front of the
Griffon’s flying path. He said in a deep voice, “Don’t tell me that
this is the first time that you have come to Horizon City? Don’t you
know that flying beasts are not allowed to enter the sky above the
With its flying path blocked, the Griffon stopped its body while emitting
an eagle cry. Its enormous eyes contained a fierce aura as it stared at
the yellow-robed, old man. However, it only obediently relaxed its
feathered wings when Xiao Yan stomped his feet.
“This is indeed our first time here. It is unexpected that there are
actually so many rules to this Horizon City.” Xiao Yan glanced at the
yellow-robed, old man in front of him and spoke with a faint voice.
“An expert Dou Huang?”
The face of the yellow-clothed, old man changed slightly as he sensed the
thunder-like voice resounding beside his ear. His gaze cautiously swept
over the Griffon. Immediately, he was somewhat stunned to discover that
other than one person, the strength of the remaining three people far
exceeded his, especially the white-clothed lady’s strength. The feeling
of pressure her gaze gave caused even the flow of the Dou Qi in his body
to become much more sluggish.
“This woman’s strength is frightening. There are only a few people
even within the Luo clan who can make me feel this way! What is the
motive for such a strong person to head to my Horizon City?” Some waves
rose within the yellow-robed, old man’s heart. His face, however,
became much warmer. He cupped his hands to Xiao Yan’s group and said,
“This friend, this is indeed the rule of Horizon City over the years.
There is a special place to park the flying beast that our Luo clan built
for travelers at the city entrance.”
“Luo clan? Big brother, there are many factions within Horizon City and
it is extremely chaotic. However, the one that existed for the longest
time is this Luo clan. That ‘Wormhole’ is also possessed by the Luo
clan. There is an ancestor within the Luo clan whose strength is around
that of a five star Dou Zong or so. He is the strongest in this city. If
not for the existence of this ancestor, it is likely that the Luo clan
would have difficulty controlling this ‘Wormhole’ for so many years.
After all, this extremely profitable fat meat is watched by an immense
amount of people with envious eyes on a daily basis.” Xin Lan softly
explained behind Xiao Yan when she heard the yellow-robed, old man’s
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. His gaze swept over the yellow-robed, old man.
His strength was merely that of a two star Dou Wang or so and could
barely be considered an expert. The reason they had arrived was merely to
shorten their journey by using the ‘Wormhole.’ He did not wish for
some other problem to occur because of other matters.
“Thank you for informing us. Additionally, I wish to ask where the
Wormhole of Horizon City is?” Xiao Yan asked with a neutral voice.
“Friends, you have come at an unfortunate time. The Wormhole is
currently under maintenance during these few days and is temporarily
closed. However, the experts of my clan are trying their best to repair
it. I think that it will open again soon.” The yellow-clothed, old man
shook his head, and explained the situation when he heard this.
“Closed?” Xiao Yan knit his brows when he heard these words. Was his
luck really this bad?
“How long will your repairs take?” The Little Fairy Doctor slowly
opened her eyes and asked in a clear faint voice.
“I am not very sure. One hasn’t seen the severity of the problem when
it comes to repairing the Wormhole. This Wormhole of Horizon City is
something built by an ancestor of my Luo clan over a hundred years ago.
After being used for so many years, it is only natural that it possesses
a lot of problems. We seek your understanding. If the few of you really
wish to pass through, you can temporarily stay for a couple of days in
the city. It should be fixed by then.” The yellow-robed, old man,
afraid of slighting the Little Fairy, hurriedly replied when he saw her
open her mouth.
“Additionally, my clan’s ancestor is recently recruiting some elite
Dou Zongs to help him repair the Wormhole together. If miss is
interested, you can head to the center of the city where the Wormhole is
located…” The yellow-robed, old man seemed to have recalled something
after he had spoken and he quickly added some more information.
The Little Fairy Doctor was non-committal to the yellow-robed, old
man’s words. She randomly lowered her snow-white chin before throwing
her pretty eyes to Xiao Yan.
“Let’s enter the city first…”
Xiao Yan mused a little before immediately cupping his hands to the
yellow-robed, old man. With a wave of his sleeves, a wind wrapped around
the Griffon and swiftly landed it on the ground.
The yellow-robed, old man bitterly laughed when he saw Xiao Yan’s group
land on the ground. He sighed, “The problem with the Wormhole this time
around is massive Otherwise, with ancestor’s ability, he would not need
to invite other elite Dou Zongs to work with him. It is not easy to hire
these fellows. Not only do they have an attitude, but the rewards they
wish to obtain are exorbitant… “
Xiao Yan did not head in the direction the yellow-robed, old man had
indicated and land in the so-called stopover point. He randomly found an
area in the forest outside of the city and landed.
Xiao Yan’s group leaped down once the Griffon landed on the ground. He
looked at the Griffon which was creeping on the ground and smiled as he
gave it a command.
Like it had understood Xiao Yan’s words, the Griffon used its large
head to rub Xiao Yan a couple of times. After which, it flapped its
enormous wings and slowly rose into the air before swiftly disappearing
into the horizon.
Xiao Yan also exhaled as he sent the Griffon off with his eyes. He waved
his hands to the Little Fairy Doctor and the rest, turned around, and
took the lead to walk to Horizon City.
“Xiao Yan, the Wormhole is temporarily closed. What should we do?”
The Little Fairy Doctor followed with slow steps as she walked beside
Xiao Yan. Her eyebrows were slightly knit as she asked.
“We will first rest in the city for a night and wait to see if there is
any news. If there is still no news tomorrow, we will head to the center
of the city to take a look.” Xiao Yan walked slowly and spoke with a
The people present naturally did not object to Xiao Yan’s words. Hence,
all of them simply nodded.
Xiao Yan’s group randomly found a cleaner inn after having entered the
city. After which, they stayed in it. News flowed the quickest in a place
like this where human traffic gathered. Such a place was the most
convenient and fastest way to know what was happening in the city.
After settling the Little Fairy Doctor and the rest in, Xiao Yan took a
stroll around, successfully obtaining some of the information he needed.
It was just as the yellow-robed, old man had explained. Currently, the
Wormhole within Horizon City had been closed. Moreover, it seemed that
the problem of the Wormhole this time around was really quite big. Even
the ancestor of the Luo clan, who was a five star Dou Zong, was unable to
resolve the problem in one go. Hence, he could only invite other elite
Dou Zongs to aid him. However, elite Dou Zongs were extremely rare
existences even in Horizon City. Additionally, the relationship of this
place was extremely complicated. Moreover, this matter was also related
to a valuable object like the Wormhole. Hence, the invitation by the
ancestor of the Luo clan did not achieve much effect. Due to the lack of
manpower, the matter of repairing the Wormhole was temporarily shelved.
This caused the Luo clan to feel a great heartache. After all, their Luo
clan would suffer a great loss everyday the Wormhole remained closed.
“Looks like tomorrow… there is a need to go and take a look. Delaying
things this way is not a good thing…”
Xiao Yan in the room held this thought as he slowly shut his eyes and
entered his daily training condition…
