Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-950
The pale-black ashes slowly drifted down from the sky before forming a
thin black-colored layer that covered the surface of the ground. This
unusual scene caused a chill to rise within everyone’s heart. No one
knew just what had happened. Even with the strength of Xia Mang, he could
only just stand and watch as many poisonous snakes suddenly turned to
ashes. Even he was completely unaware of the reason for the unexpected
A strange silence covered the gorge. A countless number of poisonous
snakes on both sides of the gorge appeared to have sensed an uneasiness.
Their bodies were tensed up while an irritable hissing was repeatedly
emitted from their mouths, causing the atmosphere within the valley to
become much darker and colder than before.
Han Chong’s group looked at each other. They immediately slowly stepped
back the convoy and protected Han Xue at their center. Their alert eyes
were locked on Xia Mang in the sky.
The silent atmosphere continued for a moment before Xia Mang finally
recovered. His gaze was somewhat hesitant as he swept over the place. It
landed on Han Xue attractive lovely face and his eyes once again turned
fiery hot. Clenching his teeth, he once again emitted a sharp hissing
sound from his mouth. The countless number of poisonous snakes on both
sides of the valley hesitated a little upon hearing this hissing sound
before a fierce glow flashed across their eyes. They twitched their
bodies, which became just like many sharp arrows that emitted a ‘xiu
xiu’ sound as they shot over to the convoy.
Seeing the poisonous snakes launching another attack, Han Chong’s group
quickly summoned their Dou Qi. However, before they could attack, the
mysterious ‘bang bang’ sound once again rang across the sky. A
countless number of fireballs appeared before swiftly being extinguished
like the epiphyllum flower. Finally, the snakes turned to dust that
slowly scattered down.
A wild joy surged into the eyes of Han Chong’s group upon seeing this
scene. At this point they could guess that there was someone secretly
“Xiao-jie (young miss)…” An excitement surfaced on Han Chong face
as he looked at Han Xue and softly uttered.
Han Xue gently waved her hand. Her pretty eyes slowly swept around her,
but she did not discover the slightest trace of anyone. Immediately, her
brows were slightly knit together. Could their luck really be this good?
They were actually able to meet an expert who would lend them a hand at
such a moment?
Her pretty eyes wandered before suddenly and unexpectedly pausing on a
carriage a moment later. That place… was where Xiao Yan was located.
Han Xue’s long eyelashes blinked gently when her sight paused on the
carriage. Before she could think deeper, Xia Mang’s dark, cold voice
was transmitted from the sky.
“May I know which expert is here? I am Xia Mang. Please forgive me if I
have offended you in any way. However, the matter today is a private one
between these fellows and I. Friend, please do not intervene.” Xia
Mang’s eyes swept across the sky as he cupped his hands together.
Xiao Mang’s voice slowly reverberated though this gorge. However, there
was no reply. Just when he was feeling somewhat frustrated, an elderly
voice spoke in a concise manner.
The sudden elderly voice appeared to have descended from the sky before
lingering beside everyone’s ears. At this moment, the joy within the
hearts of Han Chong’s group grew denser. There was indeed an expert
Han Xue’s pretty eyes turned away from the carriage where Xiao Yan was
located when the elderly voice sounded. They swept to other locations,
intent to find this mysterious expert.
“Do you really wish to fight because of these useless people?” A
fierce glow flashed across Xia Mang’s eyes. However, he did not dare to
attack because of the strange scene from earlier. All he did was speak in
a sinister manner.
“If you do not get lost within ten breaths, you will die!”
The owner of the voice earlier once again gave an extremely concise reply
to Xia Mang’s words. Even Han Chong and the others could hear a faint
cold laugh and ridicule from the voice. It seemed to be mocking Xia Mang
for being overconfident of his strength.
Xia Mang’s eyes became gloomy after being treated so rudely twice. He
was able to act as he pleased in this place for many years not because
there were no experts who wanted to kill him. Instead, it was because
this mountain range was really too large and there were a countless
number of snake holes within it. As long as Xia Mang transformed his body
and entered the deep mountains, finding him would be an extremely
troublesome matter. It was due to this that this fellow’s fierce name
had gradually become stronger.
A dense coldness flashed across Xia Mang’s eyes, but nothing could be
discerned from his face. Instead, he cupped his hands in all directions
and said, “Since friend insist on protecting them, Xia Mang shall give
you this face today…”
Xia Mang had just reached his last word when a cold glint erupted from
his eyes. His feet immediately pressed against the empty air as his body
flashed like jade-green lightning. Within the blink of an eye, he
appeared in front of Han Xue. Powerful Dou Qi surged out at this moment
and an enormous air flow shook Han Chong’s group until they swiftly
“Little girl, hardly any woman whom this grandpa fancies can escape.”
Xia Mang laughed lewdly as Dou Qi surged. He immediately grabbed at Han
Xue. The swiftness of his speed was something that Han Xue could not
dodge with her strength. Hence, she could only watch as the other
party’s claw landed on her shoulder.
“You are seeking death!”
Xia Mang’s hand had just landed when a cold cry that contained killing
intent suddenly sounded. Immediately an invisible energy ripple merged
with the space in a lightning-like manner. An instant later, it exploded
strangely on Xia Mang’s chest.
A low, deep explosion sounded, but it did not cause even the slightest
energy collision. Nevertheless, over half of the Dou Qi that permeated
Xia Mang’s body immediately scattered. An enormous force exploded on
his chest and the wild violent strength blasted the scales on his skin
until they were drenched with fresh blood. Xia Mang’s body hurried away.
“Protect xiao-jie (Young Miss)!”
The invisible attack forced back Xia Mang. Seeing this, Han Chong’s
group hurriedly swarmed forward. They swarmed and surrounded Han Xue.
Their gazes were viciously staring at Xia Mang.
Han Xue’s pretty eyes stared at Xia Mang, who had been left in such a
miserable state with just one attack. A monstrous wave was raised within
her heart. She knew that despite this fellow being loathful, his strength
was not weak. Adding to the fact that his original form was a Magical
Beast with exceptionally strong defensive capabilities, he did not expect
that he would end up in this miserable manner without even having seen
his enemy… just how frightening strong was the person who had attacked
him? It was likely that they would hardly find such an expert even within
the entire Han clan.
Xia Mang continued stepping back over a hundred steps. Only then did he
stop his body with a shocked expression. He wiped off the blood trace on
the corner of his mouth, looked all around him, and involuntarily cried
out loud, “Spiritual Strength? You are an alchemist?”
Xia Mang had finally recognized this invisible strength upon contact.
That was clearly the Spiritual Strength that alchemists specialized in.
That kind of spiritual attack was also clearly the skill that an
alchemist was most adept at.
The owner of that voice ignored Xia Mang’s exclamation. A cold snort
was emitted and an invisible Spiritual Strength once again rippled in the
air. Immediately, it contained a thunderbolt like momentum as it
violently shot toward Xia Mang.
Upon sensing the spiritual attack that was heading over once again, the
scales all over Xia Mang’s body stood on end. The terror on his face
also became denser. In the end, he finally let out a sharp cry, turned
around, and transformed into a dark-black figure that fled miserably into
the mountain forest in front of the stunned gazes of Han Chong’s group.
He completely vanished within a couple of flashes.
Xia Mang genuinely sensed a bone-piercing killing intent within that
spiritual attack. He knew that if he stayed any longer, the owner of the
Spiritual Strength would definitely slice him into pieces of snake meat.
Being able to survive in this place for so many years, Xia Mang clearly
knew just who to offend and who not to offend. Offending such an expert
for a beauty was really not worthwhile…
After Xia Mang fled, the countless number of poisonous snakes on both
sides of the gorge immediately turned around and fled like mice. Even the
dozens of enormous snakes blocking the road went all out to flee into the
grass. Within a short couple of minutes, the gorge, which had been firmly
blocked, had become empty. This scene caused Han Chong’s group to feel
“Dammit… these fellows are really practiced in fleeing for their
lives. It looks that they have frequently been chased after by
No one knew who said these words amid the silent atmosphere that caused
everyone to laughed out loud. The loudness of the laughter appeared to be
an attempt at spitting out all of their earlier shock.
After laughing, Han Chong patted his chest. He had really took one turn
above the tip of a blade. Fortunately, nothing had happened.
Han Xue’s ice-cold, pretty face defrosted slightly at this moment. She
immediately raised her head and cupped her hands respectfully toward the
sky. “This junior is Han Yue from the Han clan. Elder, thank you for
lending a hand today. Is it possible for you to reveal yourself so that
this younger generation can remember you in my heart?”
“The old me has merely coincidentally passed by. There is nothing to
A faint old voice was slowly transmitted from the sky, making it
difficult for one to find its actual position.
After the voice sounded, that mysterious expert seemed to have left. Not
even the slightest noise was emitted.
The quiet surroundings caused Han Xue to sigh disappointedly. She waved
her hand and a clear moving voice was emitted from her small mouth,
“Let’s continue our journey.”
Han Chong’s group hurriedly nodded upon hearing this. After which, they
spread apart and continued to protect the convoy in their midst. A wave
of cracking sounds appeared and the convoy advanced once again.
Han Xue had also returned to her own convoy after the convoy started to
move. An unknown feeling caused her to suddenly throw her gaze to the
carriage where Xiao Yan was located when she was boarding her own
carriage. A moment later, she finally knit her brows, and mocked herself.
Her toes pressed on the ground and her lovely body leaped back into her
Xiao Yan, who was seated cross-legged in a carriage, slowly opened his
eyes when Han Xue returned to her carriage. He held his chest and coughed
intensely while smiling bitterly. His injuries had yet to completely
recover, but he had already maneuvered his Spiritual Strength to fight
with others. It was a little tough on him…
