Chapter 650: Three Large Factions
An enormous jade-green energy handprint suddenly surfaced in the sky. It immediately carried the frightening sound of rushing wind as it violently smashed into a mountain wall like a cannonball. Immediately, the entire mountain peak forcefully exploded and violently shook the entire mountain. An arm thick crack line spread like a spiderweb from the mountain peak and covered the entire wall within a short period of time.
Xiao Yan's expression carried a trace of whiteness as he watched the mountain peak that was on the verge of collapse while wearing a pale-white expression. A joy that could not be hidden covered his dark-black eyes. After practicing for many days, he had finally learned to control the rhythm; therefore, he was able to truly use the 'Open Mountain Seal'.
Although the 'Open Mountain Seal' this time around was a little crude, Xiao Yan believed that he would definitely be able to reach complete mastery through practice if he was given sufficient time. At that time, the strength of this 'Open Mountain Seal' would likely become even more frightening.
Everything was difficult at the beginning. Since Xiao Yan already possessed quite a good start, success was only a matter of time…
Xiao Yan panted intensely. He flapped the dark-green wings on his back, and slowly landed on a messy mountain top. After over a month of training, he had currently reached an initial mastery of the 'Open Mountain Seal'. If he wanted to reach complete mastery, he would need time and opportunity to hone it through actual combat experience.
"It is indeed worthy of being a Di Class High Level Dou Technique. I had merely used it at its initial stage, but its strength is not any weaker than the 'Flame Splitting Tsunami'. I will have another trump card when fighting with another in the future." The dark-green flame wings on Xiao Yan's back quietly disappeared as he softly laughed.
A bird cry suddenly sounded in the sky just as Xiao Yan planned to recover the exhausted Dou Qi within his body. Xiao Yan lifted his head with some doubt before his expression slightly changed. He extended his hand and a suction force erupted. The messenger pigeon lingering in the sky was sucked down.
Xiao Yan received a tiny bamboo tube from the leg of the messenger bird. He opened it and took out a piece of paper that was folded. His gaze swept over it and his expression sank. After musing for a moment, he flicked his finger and the piece of paper burst into flames. It turned into a pile of ashes that scattered down to the ground below.
"Cai Lin!" Xiao Yan turned around and suddenly shouted loudly to the vast forest all around. However, there was not the slightest reaction even after a long time. Xiao Yan had no other choice as he cried out once again, "Medusa, there is a problem. Come!"
This time around, a seven-colored glow finally rushed out from a certain part of the forest a short moment after the cry sounded. Within a couple of blinks, the cold, indifferent Queen Medusa appeared in front of Xiao Yan.
"There are some issues that require me to go to the 'Black-Corner Region'. Let's go." Xiao Yan automatically ignored the cold face of Queen Medusa as he spoke.
"You can forget about getting me to be your free fighter." Medusa's eyebrows were vertical as she spoke in a cool voice.
"There will no longer be anyone who will help you refine the 'Soul Recovery Pill' if I die." Xiao Yan smiled indifferently. His back immediately shook and a beautiful pair of dark-green fire wings appeared. The fire wings flapped and Xiao Yan's body swiftly rose up into the air as wild wind surrounded his body. Finally, he turned around and charged toward the 'Black-Corner Region'.
Xiao Yan knew that Xiao Li had met some trouble from the letter. However, he did not plan to gather helpers from the Inner Academy. With his current strength, there was basically no one who could stop him within the 'Black-Corner Region'. Moreover, one should not forget Medusa who was currently following him after reaching an agreement to cooperate. This was a true elite Dou Zong. Moreover, she might be even stronger than Su Qian!
Given Xiao Yan's and Medusa's strength, it was likely that they would be sufficient to sweep over the entire 'Black-Corner Region'. The so-called Gold Silver Brothers might be able to join hands to delay Su Qian. However, if their opponent was Queen Medusa, it was likely that they would not be so lucky. After all, she was not an ordinary elite Dou Zong.
Medusa clenched her hand tightly as she watched Xiao Yan's figure that was gradually becoming distant. She hesitated for a moment before she angrily clenched her silver teeth. Her delicate legs stepped on empty sky as her figure transformed into a ray of light that swiftly caught up to the black figure in front.
At this moment, all the attention within Feng City was gathered on the grand manor at the middle of the city. That place was likely the place where the one who controlled the city would be decided.
Honestly speaking, most people within the city were not very interested in who would be the one in charge of the city. In any case, they knew that regardless of who was in control, they would ultimately be simply muddling along at the lowest level. Hence, they were even happier to see many factions having a big fight for the position to govern the city, resulting in blood flowing like a river. People who gloated over another's misery and liked to add insult to injury could be found all over the 'Black-Corner Region'.
Around half an hour ago, three large units had swaggered into Feng City before finally rushing to the manor where Medicine Emperor Han Feng had once resided. Currently, that place housed the faction who controlled Feng City, 'Xiao Gate'.
Most of the people within Feng City had heard of these three powerful factions. After all, their reputation was sufficient to spread all over the 'Black-Corner Region' since they were first-tier factions. Hence, almost everyone was familiar with them.
Dark Sky Sect, Luo Sha Gate, and Wild Lion Gang. These three large factions were extremely renowned, powerful factions within the 'Black-Corner Region'. The leaders of the three large factions were experts who were ranked within the top ten of the 'Black Ranking'. Any random person among them was not weaker than Fan Lao who had died in Xiao Yan's hands. These three large factions dominated the 'Black-Corner Region' and had always been overbearing. They even ignored Han Feng when he invited these three large factions to join him when he had established the 'Black Alliance'. This kind of action might have caused Han Feng to be extremely furious, but he had let things be because he was afraid of the strength of these three large factions.
Back then, the 'Black Alliance' was very grand. However, these three factions were able to choose to reject joining them even in that kind of situation. From this, one could tell that they possessed quite the strong capital. After all, the leaders of the three large factions were no fools. They would naturally be unwilling to offend those whom they could not afford to offend… although Han Feng was someone whom they were afraid of, it was far from the point where they had to bow before him.
There were many people who felt pity for the so-called 'Xiao Gate' now that these three factions had sent their forces into Feng City. In the eyes of many people, 'Xiao Gate' was just like a student meeting a master when faced with these three old first-tier factions despite the 'Xiao Gate' possessing a qualification that was near a first-tier faction. If the leader of 'Xiao Gate' was sensible, he would obediently hand over the rights to control the city. This was the wisest choice.
In an wide hall within a large courtyard, the atmosphere was extremely tense and seemed like it would explode with a single spark.
There were currently four groups of people within the hall at this moment. The one furthest in was naturally 'Xiao Gate' who controlled the city. Those three others on the outside seemed to be the people from the so-called Dark Sky Sect, Luo Sha Gate, and Wild Lion Gang.
"You are the leader of 'Xiao Gate' right? I shall not beat around the bush. Don't blame us for washing this place with blood if you don't give me a clear answer within an hour." A middle-aged large man with a bare chest that showed an enormous lion roaring toward the sky was faintly visible on his chest glanced at Xiao Li. A smile surfaced on his face which was filled with a bloody scent.
"Ahem. Sect Leader Yan is still so forthright. However, I also approve of these words of his." The middle-aged man had just spoken when a sexily clad beautiful woman covered her mouth and gave a loving laugh. There was a flirtatious poppy flower tattooed on the side of her face near her ear. Although it was beautiful, it possessed a lethal poison.
A shadowy-faced old man on the other side laughed darkly. His shriveled bone-like hand moved on the table, "The old me has not fought for a period of time. I wonder if I will be as ruthless like in the past if I do so."
There were nearly a hundred people standing in a scattered manner behind these three people. The bodies of these people were covered in blood. Their gazes were as cold as wild beasts when they swept around.
Xiao Li's gaze was dark and cold as he observed the three people who were singing the same tune. There were a hundred black-clothed men gathered behind him. The bloody stench on their bodies was not any weaker than those fellows in front of him. At one glance, one could tell that they had rich battle experience and were vicious individuals. The reason the other party did not act immediately upon their arrival was partly because of the significantly strong aura of these black-clothed individuals on Xiao Li's side. Otherwise, they would have long since attacked right away given their character. Why else would they repeatedly chatter in this place?
"I am clearly aware that the three of you have quite big fists within the 'Black-Corner Region'. You are all strong and there is nothing I can do if you want to occupy Feng City. It is possible for me to hand over Feng City. But… there is only one city. Who should I hand it over to?" Xiao Li played with the teacup in his hand when he suddenly asked a question.
There was a slight change in the atmosphere within the hall when Xiao Li's words sounded. A moment later, that sexily clad beautiful woman laughed, "Your scheming is not bad, but this kind of plan to alienate us with one another is useless. You need not worry about who is eventually going to be in charge of this city. All you need to do is to lead your people out of Feng City."
Xiao Li's hand tightened its grip on the teacup. He sighed with some disappointment in his heart. They were indeed very experienced and did not show any sign of falling for this ruse.
"It is possible for us to leave Feng City. However, I am not the leader of 'Xiao Gate'. Should you not wait for our leader to return if you want us to get lost?" Xiao Li frowned. Some killing intent surfaced on his cold face as he spoke in a deep voice. The current him needed to fight for some time for Xiao Yan to hurry back!
"Chattering non-stop. Where did you find all this nonsense to say? The old me is not here to discuss anything with you. I am here to inform you to get out of this city!" The large man with exposed arms immediately widened his eyes at Xiao Li's words. His palm slammed onto the table in front of him until it was in pieces as he let out a savage laugh.
Xiao Li's expression immediately became gloomy. The large group of black-clothed men behind him also emitted a 'Clang' sound as they drew their weapons from their waists. In an instant, the atmosphere within the hall had become anxious with swords drawn. It was one that would break out into a killing fight at the slightest disagreement.
"Ke ke, you want my 'Xiao Gate' to get out of Feng City? Even Han Feng wasn't qualified to do so. What makes you think you have the right?"
A faint cold laugh suddenly resounded just as the atmosphere was about to completely collapse. A black figure immediately appeared in the middle of the hall in a ghost-like manner in front of everyone's eyes…
Chapter 651: Shock and Awe
The eyes of the leaders of the three large factions involuntarily shrank a little as they watched this black-robed, young man quietly appear in a ghost-like manner. This fellow had unusual agility, and was actually able to enter this large hall without making any noise. Moreover, he had escaped their notice. Such a level of agility did indeed cause others to be extremely afraid.
The anxious swords drawn atmosphere within the hall had also become dull following the appearance of the black-robed, young man. That atmosphere that was about to collapse slowly calmed down due to their fear for each other.
A joy surged onto Xiao Li's face when he saw the sudden appearance of the black-robed, young man. Since Xiao Yan had managed to rush over, it was likely that they could smoothly settle the calamity today. He had always held a confidence that exceeded common sense toward the former's ability.
"Who are you?" The first person to open his mouth was the old man from the Dark Sky Sect. His gaze was filled with shadows as he stared at Xiao Yan and asked in a hoarse, cold voice.
"Friend, I shall warn you that this is a matter between us and the 'Xiao Gate'. It is best that an outsider doesn't intervene. Getting involved in something that doesn't concern you is the most illogical act within the 'Black-Corner Region'." The large man with exposed arms locked his gaze firmly on Xiao Yan as he spoke in a solemn voice. The strange agility that the person in front had displayed caused them to be shocked. Hence, no one dared underestimate this person.
"He is the true leader of our 'Xiao Gate'. How can you say that he is an outsider?" Xiao Li smiled faintly.
The leaders of the three large factions were slightly startled when they heard these words. Their expressions slightly sank. It was unexpected that what Xiao Li had said earlier was actually the truth. The leader of 'Xiao Gate' was indeed someone else. The three of them looked at each other before that shadowy old man laughed dryly, "This friend looks a little foreign? It seems that I have not seen you in the 'Black-Corner Region' before? May I know your name?"
"I am Xiao Yan. I have just entered the 'Black-Corner Region'. Please do bear with me if I offended you in any way." Xiao Yan smiled slightly. However, the simple name suddenly caused the atmosphere of the entire hall to abruptly stiffen. The smile that hung on the faces of the leaders of the three factions slowly stiffened.
"Xiao Yan? You are the Xiao Yan who killed Fan Lao and Han Feng?" The sexily clad beautiful woman's face was filled with surprise before she involuntarily cried out a moment later.
Xiao Yan smiled as he said in a casual manner, "Although it is not some honorable thing, the two of them did indeed lose their lives by my hand. Ke ke, why? Don't tell me the three of you have come here this time around to seek justice for them?"
The faces of the three of them immediately became volatile upon hearing Xiao Yan's acknowledgement. The recent death of Han Feng and the dissolution of the 'Black Alliance' was basically a huge matter that had shaken the entire 'Black-Corner Region'. The person who had caused all of this to happen was this fellow in front of them. He looked extremely young. Moreover, they were terribly unlucky to actually meet this fellow.
The strength of the three of them was at the very most a little stronger than Fan Lao. They would undoubtedly be much weaker when compared with Han Feng. Even Han Feng had died in the hands of this fellow. If they were to really fight, it was likely that their chances of victory would not be high even if they were to join hands.
The eyes of the three of them crossed each other as they involuntarily frowned. Originally, they had thought that this was merely a small faction. It was unexpected that they actually ended up dragging this fierce god over…
"Ha ha, what is brother Xiao saying? We are not familiar with Han Feng. How could it be possible that we are here to seek justice for him?" The sexily clad beautiful woman covered her mouth as she laughed in an enchanting manner.
"The three of you have launched such a big campaign to come to my 'Feng City'. Is something the matter?" The smile on Xiao Yan's face might be calm, but the three people on the other side did not think that Xiao Yan's character was this kind since he was the young man who had killed Fan Lao and Han Feng. One did not only rely on strength to be able to muddle along in the 'Black-Corner Region' to such an extent.
Being aggressively pressed for answers by Xiao Yan, the faces of the three leaders also changed slightly. Their motive was already extremely obvious. Yet, the other party was acting stupid. This had a little mocking taste to it.
"I believe that chief Xiao should be clearly aware of our intentions. Feng City is a big cake. Its rich profits are something that would cause anyone's eyes to turn red. We are naturally no exception." The large man with exposed arm was the first to be unable to control himself, so he replied with a deep voice.
"So, the three of you are thinking of snatching my 'Xiao Gate's' controlling rights of Feng City?" Xiao Yan laughed softly as his eyes narrowed. There was, however, no sign of any emotion on his face.
The three leaders quietly looked at one another before they instantly clenched their teeth. The profits of Feng City were extremely great. It was quite difficult to get them to give it up even with Xiao Yan's appearance. As people from the 'Black-Corner Region', the blood in their bones were filled with a restless seed. Taking a risk was something that frequently occurred. Moreover, given their strength, if the three of them were to join hands, it was not certain that they would be defeated by Xiao Yan. If they managed to delay Xiao Yan, it should not be difficult to bath the 'Xiao Gate' in blood with their numerous powerful subordinates.
Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes and studied the faint fierceness that slowly and obscurely surfaced in the eyes of the three leaders. A cold smile surfaced on the corner of his mouth. The people from the 'Black-Corner Region' were indeed a group of greedy fellows who placed profits as the highest priority.
Xiao Li, who was behind Xiao Yan, also seemed to have sensed something. His expression gradually became cold as he quietly gave a hand sign. The large group of black-clothed individuals behind him slowly tightened their grip on their weapons.
A graceful figure suddenly appeared behind Xiao Yan without any forewarning just when the atmosphere in the hall had turned quiet and tense.
The woman who had appeared immediately caused the atmosphere in the hall to become stiff. Xiao Li's face was shocked. He was also acquainted with this frightening woman who had been chasing after Xiao Yan with the intent to kill him. By appearing at this moment, she was undoubtedly exacerbating their situation.
The three leaders on the opposite side had similar expressions as Xiao Li. Their faces had become shocked at this moment. This was because they did not discover the slightest trace of air movement. It was as though this woman had been standing there without moving, only to reveal herself at this moment. This clearly told them that she was no ordinary woman…
This kind of speed was even more frightening and shocking compared to when Xiao Yan had appeared earlier. Earlier, Xiao Yan's speed was as fast as ghost. However, one could at least vaguely identify the direction he had come from. This lady, however… did not allow them to sense anything.
Moreover, the thing that caused them to be most terrified was that this woman might appear to be carelessly standing in that spot but the aura which faintly seeped out from her was sufficient to cause their hearts to feel stagnant…
The strength of the three great leaders were all at the Dou Huang class. Despite their strength, they still felt such a feeling of pressure. That meant that this bewitching beauty in front of them might be an ultimate expert of the Dou Zong class!
"Dou Zong…" The throats of the three great leaders quietly rolled a little. Cold perspiration surfaced on their foreheads. Back then, the 'Black Alliance' did not even possess a true elite Dou Zong despite its strength. It was unexpected that this small 'Xiao Gate' currently possessed such a frightening person.
Xiao Yan also sensed Queen Medusa suddenly appear behind him. He turned around and smiled toward her before giving Xiao Li a comforting hand sign. Only after seeing Xiao Yan's action did Xiao Li, who was drenched in cold sweat, quietly sigh in relief. From the looks of the situation, it seemed that Xiao Yan had already reached some sort of agreement with this terrifying woman.
Medusa did not have the slightest reaction toward Xiao Yan's smile. Her narrow and long pupils were filled with an unusual allure coldly swept across the hall. Anyone who was caught by her gaze would feel their skin turn cold. Some of those who were weaker could not help but feel their knees turn soft. The pressure of the aura of a Dou Zong was actually this strong.
The heads of the three leaders turned numb as they stared at Medusa's gaze. It was a long while later before the sexily clad beautiful woman forced a smile on her face and said, "It is unexpected that there is actually such a strong person sitting in 'Xiao Gate'. The three of us were really somewhat blind this time around."
The other two leaders laughed dryly and nodded after these words were spoken from the pretty woman. Even the gang leader of the Wild Lion Gang who appeared to be a little ill-tempered did not dare to provoke them with his words. Although he was not considered weak in the Dou Huang class, he was just like a hungry dog that met a lion in the hands of a true elite Dou Zong.
Xiao Yan rubbed his hands on his sleeves as he watched the three of them with a half-smile.
The three leaders became somewhat unnatural under the somewhat malicious gaze of Xiao Yan. A moment later, that shadowy looking old man finally laughed dryly, "Today's matter is actually a misunderstanding. It is only natural that we don't dare offend since Feng City belongs to chief Xiao. You must inform the others not to do any foolish things after returning today."
"Ha ha, that's right." The pretty woman covered her mouth and immediately stood up before bowing toward Xiao Yan. She spoke with a loving laugh, "Chief Xiao, please don't take our offence today to heart. We will definitely come and apologize in the future. It is already late today. There are still some things that need to be settled in the sect. We shall not disturb you any further."
This pretty woman hurriedly turned around after speaking and immediately left this place, that caused her to feel a great uneasiness. The two others by her side also hurriedly stood up with the intent of quickly leaving.
"The three of you need not be in such a hurry." A faint laugh caused them to immediately paused their footsteps with frustration just as they were about to exit the door. They looked at each other. All they could do was clench their teeth and turn around to look at the smiling black-robed, young man in the hall.
"Since the three of you are so interested in Feng City, why don't we engage in a business transaction…" Xiao Yan interlocked his ten fingers. His laughter reverberated within the hall, causing the three leaders to be stunned.
Chapter 652: Gathering Helpers
"Business transaction? What kind of business transaction?"
The three leaders who had originally thought that Xiao Yan wanted to turn against them were stunned when they heard the words that leaped from Xiao Yan's mouth. They immediately asked uncertainly.
Xiao Yan smiled and mused for a moment before speaking slowly, "The profits in Feng City are indeed extremely rich. I can allow your three factions to occupy a share in Feng City."
"What does chief Xiao want us to do?" The three leaders looked at each other before the shadowy-faced old man carefully asked. They did not believe that a pie would fall from the sky for no reason.
"I have an enemy which is quite strong. Although I already have confidence to contend with them given my current strength, I still require some helpers." Xiao Yan's gaze locked onto the three of them and laughed faintly. "I only require you three leaders to lend me a hand at that time."
Xiao Li, who was frowning after hearing Xiao Yan's earlier words from behind him, also began to relax. The enemy that Xiao Yan had mentioned was naturally the Misty Cloud Sect. He was clearly aware in his heart that although Xiao Yan's strength had soared, he was weak in numbers. On the other hand, the Misty Cloud Sect had numerous experts, and a strong foundation. By just relying on their few little scrimps, there was a helpless feeling of mayflies attempting to shake a large tree.
The intention he had stated earlier was that he wanted to come to the 'Black-Corner Region' to expand and strengthen his faction. However, if he were to rely on this method, it would at least require a year before they would be able to achieve the strength to contend with the Misty Cloud Sect. This current method of Xiao Yan to gather the help of other factions within the 'Black-Corner Region' would have the quickest result. However, they needed to lose some profits. This was nothing compared to the blood feud created from the destruction of the clan.
"Enemy?" The three leaders were startled when they heard this. Their expression immediately became a little volatile. Xiao Yan still needed to gather helpers despite his current strength. Just how strong was his enemy? Although the profit of Feng City was rich, it would not be worthwhile if they were to end up being pulled into a firepit.
"May I know which faction on the continent is the enemy that chief Xiao mentions?" The sexily clad pretty woman finally could not resist opening her mouth to ask a moment later.
Xiao Yan laughed softly. A dense coldness faintly flickered through his dark-black eyes, "Although that faction has been hiding in one corner like a tortoise all these years, I think that everyone should have heard of them."
"Jia Ma Empire's, Misty Cloud Sect!"
A faint, cold voice was slowly spat out of Xiao Yan's mouth before resounding within the large hall.
"The Misty Cloud Sect?" The three leaders softly muttered this somewhat familiar name in their mouths. Their expression changed a little a moment later. They exchanged glances with one another before that shadow-faced old man voiced his thoughts, "I seem to have heard some news about this faction. If the news I have obtained is correct, the Misty Cloud Sect has an elite Dou Zong!"
"Aye, I have also obtained some news earlier that an elite Dou Zong had appeared within the Jia Ma Empire. His name… seemed to be called Yun Shan?" The sexily clad pretty woman also recalled a little as she spoke with a solemn expression.
Xiao Yan did not feel surprised that the three leaders had heard of the Misty Cloud Sect. Although the 'Black-Corner Region' was tens of thousands of kilometers from the Jia Ma Empire, it would not hinder some of the very important news from spreading. Dou Zong. An expert of this class could be considered a top notch expert even when placed in the entire Dou Qi continent. Hence, the news began to spread like wildfire once it was spread from the Jia Ma Empire.
The leaders of the three large factions looked at one another. A moment later, they shook their heads in a somewhat embarrassed manner. The shadowy-faced old man smiled awkwardly to Xiao Yan and said, "Chief Xiao, you cannot blame us for this decision. The 'Black-Corner Region' is thousands of kilometers from the Misty Cloud Sect. Even with our speed, it would likely require at least two to three months to make a trip there and back. Moreover… the Misty Cloud Sect's strength is indeed strong. It can be considered to be somewhat renowned even in the entire north-western region of the continent. I think that it won't be easy to take revenge even with our help."
The strength of the Misty Cloud Sect could be considered to be near that of a first-tier faction even in the entire north-western part of the continent. If these first-tier factions from the 'Black-Corner Region' were to be placed on the entire continent, it was obvious that they would be ranked a little lower. If one wanted to find one single faction within the entire 'Black-Corner Region', it was likely that none of them would be able to surpass the Misty Cloud Sect. The earlier 'Black Alliance' might perhaps be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Misty Cloud Sect, but it was an alliance and not a single faction.
Of course, if Xiao Yan were able to gather the factions within the entire 'Black-Corner Region', he would naturally be able to far surpass the Misty Cloud Sect. However, it was basically impossible to unite everyone in this chaotic place.
"Ke ke, you three leaders must be afraid that Xiao Yan is unable to deal with the Misty Cloud Sect, and will end up dragging all of you into a mess, right?" Xiao Yan was not infuriated by the reaction of these people. He merely laughed softly.
The three of them gave an embarrassed smile but did not try to defend themselves.
"Other than Yun Shan, the Misty Cloud Sect will not have more than three elite Dou Huangs in total. The remainder are mostly some Elders at the Dou Wang or Dou Ling class, and there is nothing to fear from them. The lower level disciples pose no threat at all." Xiao Yan laughed in a faint voice, "We also possess an elite Dou Zong. As for Dou Huangs, is there anyone who is stronger than Han Feng? Hence, we only need to find some helpers who are qualified to help us resist the large forces of the Misty Cloud Sect. This is not difficult for the three of you."
The eyes of the three leaders flickered, but they still remained quiet.
"They are indeed a group of people who will do nothing without seeing the reward…" Xiao Yan's brows were knit slightly when he saw the united silence of these three people. He immediately shook his head helplessly and said, "The ambition of the 'Xiao Gate' does not stop at Feng City. We will definitely continue to spread throughout the 'Black-Corner Region' in the future. Given our strength, the profits that we will obtain in the future are countless times greater than now. If the three of you are willing to help me, I will not forget all of you when it comes to this big cake in the future…"
A boiling heat surged within the hearts of these three leaders when they heard Xiao Yan's words. Currently, the 'Xiao Gate' possessed Xiao Yan and the mysterious Dou Zong behind him. Its strength had already exceeded that of the 'Black Alliance' back then. It was likely that there was no faction within the 'Black-Corner Region' who could contend with them. Hence, these words of Xiao Yan had undoubtedly held great attraction to them. However… that damn Misty Cloud Sect, was not some ordinary being.
Xiao Yan smiled once again as he saw the changing expression of the three people. His voice faintly unleashed the final potent medicine, "You all should have heard of the 'Mighty Huang Pill', no?"
The three leaders immediately raised their heads when the calm voice sounded. Their gazes stared firmly at Xiao Yan and their eyes were filled with a wild joy.
The 'Mighty Huang Pill' was a medicinal pill which was known to be at the peak of the tier 6 medicinal pills. Its effect was very simple. Using it would allow an elite Dou Huang to raise his strength one or two stars within a short period of time. Moreover, the 'Mighty Huang Pill' has another use: it could refine one's bones.
The remnant medicinal strength after the increase in one's strength would help strengthen the body of the person who had consumed it. Although this kind of strengthening could not be compared with the kind of frightening strengthening that Xiao Yan had experienced underground, it would still be able to increase one's fighting ability significantly.
Simply speaking, the effect of the 'Mighty Huang Pill', and the 'Dou Spirit Pill' was similar. However, the 'Dou Spirit Pill' was only useful to a Dou Wang, while the 'Mighty Huang Pill' had great use to an elite Dou Huang. Moreover, it had the additional effect of strengthening one's bones.
Even without this effect, it would still be one of the medicinal pills that was most sought after by an elite Dou Huang. The allure of raising one's strength by one or two stars was too attractive to them. It should be known that when one reached the level of a Dou Huang, it was not an uncommon thing for some of the unlucky ones to have difficulty raising their strength by one level even after a couple of years.
A medicinal pill that could raise one's strength would always possess the greatest allure!
Hence, the three leaders did not hide the desire within their hearts. This kind of medicinal pill was not something that they had never thought about. However, it was likely that Han Feng alone possessed ability to refine it within the entire 'Black-Corner Region'. However, they never had a good relationship with Han Feng. Hence, it was naturally impossible for him to spend the effort to refine this kind of medicinal pill for them. It was this reason that their hearts were all lifted when Xiao Yan mentioned this name.
"Chief Xiao is able to refine the 'Mighty Huang Pill'?" The wild joy within the eyes of the three of them slowly began to withdraw a moment later. The bare-armed Wild Lion Gang leader was the first to involuntarily inquire.
The other two people hurriedly threw their gaze to Xiao Yan when they heard these words. A 'Mighty Huang Pill' was a peak tier 6 medicinal pill. Back then, even Han Feng's chances of success when refining it were not very high, much less this very young Xiao Yan.
"I would not be mentioning this in front of the three of you if I didn’t know how to refine it." Xiao Yan smiled. He flicked his finger and a wisp of jade-green flame suddenly surfaced. The temperature of the entire hall immediately soared following the appearance of the flame. Even the air had become exceptionally dry.
"This is… 'Heavenly Flame'?"
The eyes of the three of them shrank as they looked at the wisp of jade-green flame. Their feet involuntarily took a couple of steps back. Being elite Dou Huangs, they were clearly aware of just what kind of frightening strength a 'Heavenly Flame' possessed. Despite their strength, it would be extremely troublesome if they were to touch even a little bit of this thing.
"It is only natural for me to have my capital in order to kill Han Feng." Xiao Yan looked at the three people as he spoke with a faint smile. His long finger danced agilely as that wisp of dark-green flame obediently lingered and danced around his finger.
"Since I am able to kill him, it is only natural that I have surpassed him. Why can't I refine the things that he can?"
"If the three of you agree with my condition, I will definitely hand over the 'Mighty Huang Pill' once the matter is successfully settled. Moreover, all of you will be able to enjoy a profit in the 'Black-Corner Region' that would cause others to envy you. What do you say?" Xiao Yan's soft laughter landed in the ears of the three of them, causing their breathing to slowly become rough and heavy.
Their faces turned a little flush as their eyes flicked about in a volatile manner. Their hearts had also descended into a great conflict.
Xiao Yan ceased saying anything in the face of the conflict of these three people. He narrowed his eyes and waited for the final reply of these three people. The temperature of the wisp of dark-green flame on his finger also quietly rose with his mood while he waited…
The three leaders finally recovered from their struggle when the temperature of the hall rose to a certain degree. They looked at one another before they eventually grit their teeth and nodded violently. They would go all out and seek wealth even amid danger!
"Alright, we will do as you say!"
