Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-996
Over a dozen Moonlight Stones were inserted into the surrounding tree
trunks of an empty area within the forest. The light that they emitted
caused this area to appear quite bright. The dense fog had also been
scattered by the big battle that had occurred earlier. Hence, it had
resulted in this place becoming much more visible.
There were five figures in the empty ground. Four were male and one was
female. Their strengths were all quite great. Clearly, they were not
weaklings. Moreover, this kind of aura was not something that an ordinary
person could emit. The five auras were similarly strong.
One of the four men was wearing deep-yellow clothing. Additionally, there
was a knife scar on his face. He was currently sitting on a tree branch,
leaning against the tree trunk. His gaze lazily swept over the place
below as he faintly said, “Hurry up…”
The other three men on the ground hurriedly nodded their heads upon
hearing this person speak. The three of them were wearing yellow-colored
robes and wore a similar badge on their chests. It seemed that they
belonged to the same faction.
“Hand over the Psychic White Fox. It is not as though we have not done
something like killing a woman…”
The lady was holding a longsword in her hand. Her pale-green clothing
wrapped around her exquisite figure until it was vividly displayed. Her
voluminous figure was extremely attractive, and her black hair, which was
randomly restrained by a green-colored cloth, extended to her lovely
buttocks. That young and pretty appearance of hers was not foreign. It
was surprisingly Nalan Yanran who had accompanied Yun Yun in leaving Jia
Ma Empire back then.
A couple of years had passed. The current Nalan Yanran no longer had the
tenderness that she had back then.When she moved, she would emit an
alluring mature attraction. The pampered young lady back then had truly
become a great beauty that could bring destruction to cities and empires.
TL: Extreme beauty is said to be able to cause destruction of empires
because they tend to be able to distract the ruler from doing the right
things or from working
There was a lovely little white-colored fox on Nalan Yanran’s
shoulders. This white fox had snow-white fur which was extremely smooth.
At a glance, one would have the feeling of liking it too much to put it
down. It possessed lethal impact on women.
At this moment, the pair of intelligent eyes belonging to this white fox
were roaming all around. It seemed that the killing intent, which was
permeating from the bodies of the tree people on the opposite side, had
caused the snow-white fur to show signs of trembling. A soft babbling was
emitted from its mouth.
Nalan Yanran seemed to have sensed the fear of the little, white fox. She
gently rubbed its head before slowly raising her head. Those pretty eyes
of hers were icily staring at the three people opposite her. She
tightened her grip on the longsword as a sharp sword aura slowly surged
out. Two ice-cold words were also softly emitted from her mouth.
“Hee hee, what a stubborn beauty. However, you are a little too
stubborn. With your five star Dou Huang strength, you can forget about
escaping from the hands of the three of us. Obediently hand over the
white fox. Otherwise, I would not mind enjoying just how much ecstasy
such a beauty would give…” A yellow-clothed man stared at Nalan
Yanran with a searing gaze. He involuntarily licked his lips, and his
eyes contained a lewd look.
Nalan Yanran’s pretty face had also become even icier upon hearing such
despicable words from this fellow. The strength of the three people
across from her were around that of a four star Dou Huang. If it had been
one-on-one, she was confident that she could kill them within a short
period of time. However, if these three were to attack together, she
would have difficulty blocking them. Moreover, these three people
belonged to the same faction. They collaborated well with one another.
During the earlier exchange, she had nearly suffered a disadvantage. The
thing which gave her the most pressure was the man who had been sitting
on the tree. This person had not attacked since the beginning. However,
Nalan Yanran sensed a faint pressure when facing him from the opposite
side. Clearly, the other party’s strength was much stronger than hers.
“The Ground Spirit Gate is indeed a place where garbage is produced.”
The expressions of the three yellow-clothed men became slightly colder
when they saw that Nalan Yanran had identified their faction. With their
strength, they were also considered the elites within the younger
generation of the Ground Spirit Gate. Although they could not be compared
with people like Tang Ying and Miss Feng, they still had some reputation.
If they had not needed the Psychic White Fox to lead the way when they
entered the Heaven Eye Mountain Range, they would not have become enemies
with a five star Dou Huang for no reason. However, since they had already
done so, there was naturally no way to change things.
The three of them exchanged glances. Immediately, they nodded slightly
and decided not to continue getting entangled in this matter. Their
bodies moved and formed a triangular shape, surrounding Nalan Yanran.
Powerful deep-yellow Dou Qi surged out of their bodies.
“Ground Drawing Prison!”
The hands of the three of them violently landed on the ground. The land
shook and the soil rapidly churned. Rock fragments shot out. In the blink
of an eye, a cage that was formed from the soil broke out of the ground
and trapped Nalan Yanran within.
Nalan Yanran knit her brows upon seeing this. Her feet pressed on the
ground and her lovely body was like a spinning top that swiftly rotated.
Sharp sword aura shot in all directions and viciously cut at the cage,
causing many cut lines to quickly appear.
The three yellow-clothed men fiercely slammed their hands on the ground
when they saw that the cage was swiftly collapsing under Nalan Yanran’s
hands. Three yellow-colored spears, created from mud, immediately shot
out of the ground. After which, they were quickly grabbed by the three of
them. Their feet stomped on the ground as they shot toward Nalan Yanran
in the middle.
Nalan Yanran did not dare to slight the combined attack of three four
star Dou Huangs. The longsword in her hand was wrapped by powerful sword
aura as it trickily and viciously pierced out in a lightning-like manner.
Four figures exchanged blows within the cage in a lightning-like manner.
Sword aura spread everywhere, forming numerous deep gullies in the
ground. The three yellow-clothed men seemed to be aware of the sharpness
of Nalan Yanran’s sword aura. Therefore, they did not forcefully
attack. Instead, they relied on their long lasting ground affinity Dou Qi
to slowly exhaust her Dou Qi.
Nalan Yanran was similarly aware of the exhaustion tactic the three had
adopted. However, she did not have any means to deal with it. These three
people were cooperating extremely well and had firmly restricted her from
the beginning. This caused her to lack even the slightest opportunity to
rest. If this were to be prolonged, Dou Qi deficiency would result in the
interior of her body…
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The longsword pierced into the three spear tips in a lightning-like
manner. Nalan Yanran’s pretty face turned cold as sharp sword auras
suddenly shot out!
Three mud spears were blown apart when they were struck by the sword
aura. However, before Nalan Yanran could continue pressing her attack,
the ground shook and an enormous sharp mud pillar shot out, causing her
to hurriedly withdraw.
When Nalan Yanran’s body landed, the three people on across from her
formed more long spears. A deep-yellow armor had also appeared on their
bodies at this moment, covering them with firm protection. Ground
affinity Qi Methods usually specialized in being long lasting defenses…
“You are worthy of being a five star Dou Huang by being so troublesome
to deal with. However, it will end here. With the Dou Qi in your body, it
is likely that you will not be able to endure for long. Hand the Psychic
White Fox over to us and we will let you off.” A low, deep sound was
emitted from the deep-yellow armor.
“You can use these words to trick a three year old child.” Nalan
Yanran coldly laughed when she heard this. She was no longer that young
lady from back then. Her experience in the Central Plains during these
years had also allowed her to understand quite a lot of principles.
“Stubborn fool. You’re seeking death!”
The three of them became impatient when they saw that Nalan Yanran still
would not submit. Their hands faced each other from a distance and six
deed-yellow-colored Dou Qi light pillars shot out. Immediately, they
transformed into a triangular shape of encircling light.
“The Spirit of Land, Earth Melting Skill!”
The three people cried out sharply. Deep-yellow Dou Qi swiftly
agglomerated in front of one of them. That powerful Dou Qi, that had
gathered the strength of the three of them, caused even Nalan Yanran to
change her expression.
When the cry sounded, the deep-yellow Dou Qi swiftly became distorted.
Immediately, it transformed into a ferocious Earth Dragon. It let out a
roar and transformed into a light ray with a bang. Finally, it shot
straight toward Nalan Yanran. A deep gully appeared on the empty ground
where it passed, appearing like a bull plowing the fields…
“This Earth Melting Skill of the Ground Spirit Gate does possess some
uniqueness…” The man on the tree branch glanced at the Earth Dragon
in front of him and softly said.
Nalan Yanran clenched her silver teeth as she looked at the Earth Dragon
ferociously shooting over. Her hand tossed the little white fox on her
shoulders aside, and a deep-green-colored Dou Qi swiftly formed a wind
wall in front of her.
The Earth Dragon collided with the wind wall. The sharp wind blades that
comprised the wall cut the Earth Dragon until it repeatedly trembled.
However, this did not successfully stop the Earth Dragon’s attack. Both
parties continued in this state for a moment before the wind wall
exploded with a bang.
Nalan Yanran was revealed to the Earth Dragon when the wind wall burst
apart. It immediately roared at the former as its ferocious mouth bit
down at Nalan Yanran’s head.
Nalan Yanran’s pretty face became slightly pale when she saw the Earth
Dragon in close proximity. She was just about to use her Dou Qi when she
was shocked to realize that her body had been entwined by an unusual
A sharp wind forming a fist shot over from the dense fog a short distance
away just when the Earth Dragon was about to pounce onto Nalan Yanran. It
immediately smashed into the Earth Dragon. It shook before transforming
into light spots that burst apart.
The sudden unexpected change surprised everyone. This included the man in
the tree branch. He threw his somewhat shocked eyes toward the spot where
the fist wind had been emitted.
“Who is it? I am Huang Tian from the Ground Spirit Gate. Friend, please
do not meddle in other people’s business!”
The yellow-clothed man swept his gaze cautiously around him as he spoke
with a deep voice.
“Aren’t you afraid of throwing away the face of the Ground Spirit
Gate by having so many men bully a girl?” A mocking laugh was emitted
from the dense fog. Immediately, soft footsteps sounded. A moment later,
a skinny figure appeared in front of everyone’s eyes.
Nalan Yanran, who was still in a state of shock, raised her head as she
looked at the figure that was slowly walking out of the dense fog. She
was just about to voice her thanks when she saw that face. Her body
immediately stiffened. Her entire mind also seemed to have stilled at
this moment. It was a long while later before she softly spoke the name,
which was hidden deep in her memory, with some difficulty and disbelief…
“Xiao… Xiao Yan?”
