Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-230
Xiao Yan’s mind dragged the wisp of green-colored flame and slowly
circulated it. At the places where the flame passed through, the ice
layer coagulated from the ‘Icy Spirit Cold Fountain’ continued to
As he carefully dragged this tiny wisp of green-colored flame and
circulated it through some of his Qi Paths, other green-colored flames
were also gradually attracted to this companion of theirs. With the help
from the attraction force between the green-colored flames, the divided
wisps of green flame in his body began to slowly merge together as Xiao
Yan continued to control this one wisp of ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ as
he circulated it through his Qi Paths.
When the last wisp of green-colored flame was gathered together through
Xiao Yan’s hard work, the green-colored flames gradually merged. A
moment later, it coagulated into a tiny green-colored lava.
Eyeing this green-colored lava that had once again appeared, Xiao Yan
forcefully withstood the twitching pain that was emitted from within his
body. He clenched his teeth and dragged it to continue circulating
through his Qi Paths.
The ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ after being merged together had
undoubtedly become more violent and terrifying. When the green-colored
lava trickled past, the thick ice layer was transformed to the point of
not even having the thickness of a thumb. Moreover, the cold fog that it
emitted was also incinerated by the green-colored flame until it turned
into nothingness. The ice layer which had lost its replenishing system
had a difficult time withstanding the erosion of the ‘Heavenly Flame’.
The effect of the ‘Icy Spirit Cold Fountain’ was gradually being
reduced with each movement of the heavenly flame. On one occasion when
the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ erupted, a small section of the ice
layer within Xiao Yan’s Qi Path was actually completely melted. A small
drop of green-colored lava penetrated through the defence of the ice
layer and landed on the naked Qi Path. Immediately, the Qi Path acted
like a excited worm and tensed up. An intense pain that reached deep into
his soul caused Xiao Yan to violently vomit a mouthful of fresh blood.
Xiao Yan’s teeth clenched against each other. That sudden appearance of
intense pain caused Xiao Yan’s head to feel giddy for awhile before he
gradually calmed down. He did not even have time to wipe away the blood
stains as he hurriedly focused upon the heavenly flame. Once again, he
controlled the green-colored lava and slowly circulated it along the Qi
During the circulation, Xiao Yan’s mind grew increasingly proficient in
controlling the movements of the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’. However,
because of this, the temperature that the green-colored flame emitted
grew increasingly frightening. By now, the ‘Icy Spirit Cold Fountain’
in Xiao Yan’s body was being repeatedly defeated by the ‘Heavenly
Flame’ attack. It was likely only going to last a little longer before
it completely melted with exhausted energy.
Clenching his teeth intensely, Xiao Yan used all his might to drag that
tiny green-colored lava. The high temperature that was released from
within it, seeping through Xiao Yan’s Qi Paths and bones, directly
causing tiny white-colored bubbles to appear on the surface of Xiao
Yan’s body. When the white bubbles broke, it revealed the bright red
flesh under it. Numerous small crack lines spread out from within the
blood and flesh, finally covering all over Xiao Yan’s hands and body.
They made Xiao Yan seem like a damaged porcelain doll, appearing
Eyeing Xiao Yan’s cracked skin all over his body, the corner of Yao
Lao’s eyes twitched involuntarily. This phenomenon of the skin cracking
meant that the hot air had spread all over the interior of Xiao Yan’s
body. Without any path out, all the hot air could only break through Xiao
Yan’s skin and create cracks to escape through.
Usually, the appearance of such a scenario meant that the situation in
the body was not proceeding smoothly. This was because if an energy surge
were to happen, then the surface of Xiao Yan’s skin had a high
possibility of being directly blown apart.
Yao Lao’s old face swiftly changed. His hands gripped tightly into a
fist and relaxed repeatedly. It took a long while before he managed to
suppress the fear in his heart. He waited quietly at the side, not daring
to make the slightest sound to interrupt Xiao Yan.
The current Xiao Yan ignored the changes on the surface of his body.
Instead, he had already placed all his attention onto the green-colored
lava that was about to complete one circulation of his Qi Paths.
When the green-colored lava flowed through a main Qi Path, it finally
completed a perfect full cycle. At this moment, Xiao Yan could clearly
feel that relationship between his mind and the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ had become a little more tacit.
After the green-colored lava completed the final circulation, there was a
sudden surge of Dou Qi in Xiao Yan’s body. This slight change had an
extreme effect on the unstable situation. The slight tremble of the Dou
Qi caused the hot air that filled Xiao Yan’s entire body to violently
surge outward through Xiao Yan’s arm, carrying a big piece of flesh and
blood with it.
The sudden intense pain caused Xiao Yan’s spirit to violently tremble a
few times. On his forehead, cold sweat was like dripping water as it
swiftly fell, drenching his clothes.
Taking a few deep breath in his heart, Xiao Yan’s palm groped within
the storage ring and took out a bottle of healing medicine. He randomly
poured it over his wound and continued to place his mind on the
green-colored flame in his body.
Due to the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ having completed one cycle, the
Purple Flame Dou Qi within the vortex of his body suddenly started
writhing. Under the direction of his mind, a wisp of Purple-colored Dou
Qi flowed out from the vortex and covered the green-colored lava within
it… Although each time the purple flame came into contact with the
‘Heavenly Flame’. it would be instantly incinerated into nothing, it
was fortunate there was a near-never ending supply of purple flame.
Therefore, the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ that had just finished one
cycle was once again dragged through the route required by the ‘Flame
As the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ was pushed through the route dictated
by the ‘Flame Mantra’, it appeared to have felt an uneasiness
somewhere. Immediately, the flame which had become calmer after a full
cycle, once again became violent. A dark green-colored flame rose from
the lava and ruthlessly grilled the Qi Paths that had been covered by a
layer of ice. Wherever the flame passed, the Qi Paths completely changed
their shape; they looked severely injured.
Having swallowed the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ in this manner, Xiao
Yan could be considered to have experienced its terror. Before this
swallowing had completed, the inside of his body was already damaged
until it was a complete mess. Looking at his current wounds, he would
have to rest for at least a few months even with the help of various
healing medicinal pills if he wanted to recover back to his original
condition. After all, his injuries this time around were far too serious.
If he were an ordinary person, it might have been enough to turn him into
Within his Qi Paths, the Purple Flame Dou Qi continued to be incinerated
into nothingness while the vortex continued to go all out to deliver the
Dou Qi. It would deliver the same amount of Dou Qi that was burnt.
Although by pushing it like this, the Dou Qi stored within the vortex was
diminishing at a visible speed, at the same time the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ also began to circulate successfully through the route directed
by the ‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Method.
Within the interior of his Qi Paths, the layer of ice formed by the
‘Icy Spirit Cold Fountain’ had gradually become thin from its
original thick state after being depleted by the ‘Heavenly Flame’
over a long period of time. It then transformed from its thin state to
one that barely existed. By now, the freezing cold layer of ice had
already completely lost its ability to protect…
With the disappearance of the layer of ice, the already terrible
circumstances inside Xiao Yan’s body became even worse. The high
temperature grilled his Qi Paths until they were a jumbled mess. In some
tiny areas, the Qi Paths began to gradually form clots, blocking the flow
of Dou Qi.
By this stage, Xiao Yan, who had already played all his cards, could only
clench his teeth and put in all his effort to drive the ‘Green Lotus
Core Flame’ to complete the circulation route of the ‘Flame Mantra’
Qi Method. This was because only by doing this would he receive a perfect
compensation. Otherwise, once the ‘Heavenly Flame’ flared back up, he
might well be turned into powder on the spot.
“Chi…” On Xiao Yan’s face, a small blood slit suddenly cracked
open. Fresh blood flowed out from it, wetting half of Xiao Yan’s face
with a blood red color. Looking at him, he appeared like a white and red
The closed eyed Xiao Yan naturally did not know just how terrifying his
outer appearance had become. He could only vaguely sense that there was
an intense pain that suddenly appeared on his face. After which, he
focused all his attention on circulating the Dou Qi, pulling that
green-colored lava, whose resistance was growing increasingly intense and
completing the final path of the ‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Technique.
After being depleted by the ‘Heavenly Flame’ for a long time, the
Purple Flame Dou Qi in the vortex appeared to be almost completely
exhausted. There were only the base seventeen drops of purple-colored
liquid energy that were rolling around the vortex.
TL: Purple drops cannot be recovered (unless to train to that stage
again) unlike regular Dou Qi that can be recovered over time
When the last thread of gas Dou Qi was released, Xiao Yan hesitated for a
moment before he began to transfer the liquid energy out of the vortex
and directed them to cover the green-colored lava and use all their might
to drag it.
The liquid energy within the vortex was worthy of being of a higher grade
compared to the gas energy. A small droplet of purple-colored liquid was
able to withstand the incineration of the ‘Heavenly Flame’ for over
twenty seconds before it completely evaporated.
Seeing that the effect of the liquid energy was quite good, Xiao Yan’s
spirit rose. He did not care about anything else as he directly and
continuously withdrew drops of liquid energy from within the vortex and
then drove the green-colored lava strip to pass through the last stretch
of the route signalled by his Qi Method.
The seventeen drops of purple-colored liquid energy in the vortex were
consumed until only three drops were left. By then, the green-colored
lava finally exited the last route of the ‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Method…
when the green-colored lava exited the last Qi Path, a sudden faint
cooling feeling suddenly rose within Xiao Yan’s head which had been
numbed from the intense pain, causing him to recover quite a lot of
After the current ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ passed through the route
of the ‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Method, the high temperature that carried an
extremely damaging strength suddenly began to gradually weaken. A moment
later. the high temperature almost completely withdrew into the lava. The
violence disappeared and a thread of soothing warmth gradually spread
“Have I succeeded…”
Within the mountain cave, Yao Lao eyed Xiao Yan whose entire body did not
even have a piece of skin that was in good condition and sighed heavily.
A gratified smile appeared on his face as he nodded slightly. His finger
flicked gently and the tiny Acceptance Spirit on the rock’s surface
turned into a gray glow that shot directly into Xiao Yan’s body.
As the Acceptance Soul entered Xiao Yan’s body, a piercing
green-colored flame cover instantly shot out from within Xiao Yan’s
body. After which, it quickly wrapped around him. The writhing hot green
flame on it isolated everyone’s sight from Xiao Yan.
Eyeing the green-colored flame cover that suddenly appeared, Yao Lao
smiled slightly and muttered softly, “What a frightening little guy. He
was actually able to withstand the pain caused by the ‘Heavenly
Flame’ forging through his body. How remarkable…”
Within the spacious interior of the mountain cave, the green-colored
flame cover wrapped Xiao Yan within it much like a chicken egg. The
writhing green-colored flame seemed to declare that Xiao Yan was
undergoing a metamorphosis…
