Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-31
Looking at the green-clothed girl firmly walking forward, the training
field became silent as blazing gazes focused upon her figure.From the
high platform, all high class clan members stopped their chatter as they
also focused on the pearl of Xiao clan.
Xiao Zhan, together with the 3 elders, all had a serious face, with a
hint of curiosity. They really want to know what stage the number one
person of the younger generation in Xiao Clan has achieved after one year
Here, all eyes zoomed intensively downwards at the girl who is walking
towards the stone monument at a pace that was neither slow nor fast. She
raised her small hand, revealing her snow-white skin as the sleeve is
As her precious hand softly touched the stone monument, Xun Er gradually
closes her eyes as her inner Dou Qi quickly strengthened.
Accepting the incoming Dou Qi, the ever silent monument shined out bright
rays of light.
One Star Dou Zhe!
Looking at these four giant words shinning on the stone monument in the
center of the training ground, for a moment everybody was silenced, then
as if awakening, they all burst into cheers.
“Miss Xun Er, One Star Dou Zhe!”
Being surprised by the four shining yellow letters, the operator
couldn’t help but shake his head.
“Haha… 15 years old Dou Zhe… she truly is…”
Listening to the announcement of the examiner, Xiao Zhan took a light
breath but his last words became mumbled.
The 3 elders lightly nodded as their faces showed their surprise.
Although there was still a slight difference with Xiao Yan’s
achievement of becoming a Dou Zhe when he was 12 years old, this training
speed of hers can be considered monstrous.
In the middle of the training ground, Xiao Mei who had just been admired
by everyone, was also dizzied by the four shining words on the stone
pillar. Staring at the monument, she felt a sense of helplessness. Only
15 years old to become a One Star Dou Zhe, that achievement blinded her
who didn’t expected that prowess from Xun Er.
At the end of the crowd, Xiao Yan nervously pursed his lips. He didn’t
expect Xun Er to enter the Dou Zhe zone and also reach one star, a whole
tier above someone who just compressed his or her Qi cyclone. This speed
of training can even be compared to him who’s using Foundation Elixir
to boost his training speed.
Xun Er ignored the other people and furrowed her brow disapprovingly as
if she didn’t like the attention. Then she walked back into the crowd
and noticing Xiao Yan’s surprise, she smiled playfully.
“Don’t be so proud! With your talent, this achievement is within my
expectation. If you didn’t reach Dou Zhe level then I would be quite
surprised.” Xiao Yan shrugged and joked.
Hearing that, Xun Er’s little face became sorrowful for a moment
glancing at him.
Pulling Xun Er to sit down on the mat, Xiao Yan looked bored as he
observed other clan members continuing the examinations.
Honestly speaking, to train one’s Dou Qi to 7 Duan Qi before the age of
15 required decent talent to succeed. However, those with decent talent
aren’t as plentiful as one may think and even within the entire Xiao
Clan, only 2 to 3 tenths people make it.
As time passed, more and more people were deemed unqualified, dulling the
atmosphere of the training field. Those that didn’t pass showed a long
face when they were rejected but when they saw others also not pass, a
slight smile would creep onto their faces.
Sitting on the ground, Xiao Yan continued to observe the examination;
over a hundred of examinee but only two people were like Xiao Mei and got
8 Duan Qi and nobody achieved 9 Duan Qi let alone becoming a Dou Zhe, of
course it’s with Xun Er excluded.
On the field, the number of examinees slowly dwindled and finally there
were only Xiao Yan and several people left.
Soon, a bleak young examinee stood up and went up even though he knew
that he had no chance of qualifying.
For the last dozen or so examinees, everybody knew that these people were
at the bottom of the clan and if not for fair examinations, it was
probably that these people would have been disqualified without ever
Standing next to the stone pillar below, the operator announced the name
“Xiao Yan-ge ge, it’s your turn…” Xun Er said gently, her soft
small hands lightly holding Xiao Yan’s hand.
Slightly raising his head, Xiao Yan opened his eyes and scanned the
training field. He couldn’t help but snicker when he saw the gazes
filled with expectations of his failure!
Slowly standing up, Xiao Yan turned his head toward the high platform and
grinned at Xiao Zhan.
Looking at his son coming forward while smiling toward him, Xiao Zhan
cheerfully nodded his head while one hand brought a teacup forward and
smoothly laid back on his chair.
Silently inhaling, Xiao Yan confidently walked toward the stone pillar;
his eyes shined a strange light that made the laughing clan members widen
Under complex gazes, Xiao Yan finally got to the black monument.
Looking at the black-clothed youth in front of him, the examiner sighed
internally. That year, when Xiao Yan created a miracle, he was the first
one to witness it but he was also the witness of the sad steps of the
genius 3 years after that bright shine. If today’s miracle doesn’t
happen, this would also be the last time this youth gets examined.
On the training ground, the intense gazes focused on Xiao Yan whose chest
slowly rose as he brought his hand forward and rested it upon the cold,
hard, stone pillar.
At this moment, everybody focused their gaze upon the monument. They all
knew that this was the last time they would ever see the genius who once
shocked all of Wu Tan City in a Dou Qi examination.
The stone monument went silent for a moment before bright light blazed

Upon the stone monument were bright yellow words, making all the hearts
in the field stop for a moment.
“Dou Zi Li…7 Duan!”
