Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-312
Under the night sky, two shadows shot over the roofs of different houses
in an agile manner. Between some of the houses were spacious streets and
although it was already late at night, a great deal of people still
filled the streets, making noise. Fortunately, the speed of the two human
figures in midair was extremely fast. Even if one raised their head, he
would merely see two black lines that flashed and disappeared.
Xiao Yan followed close behind Hai Bo Dong and the Dou Qi in his body
slowly tumbled, creating waves of seemingly never ending energy for the
muscles in his body. The tip of his feet gently pressed on the roof and
his body quickly shot forward.
“We’re here.” After Xiao Yan followed Hai Bo Dong closely as he
rushed forward for a distance, Hai Bo Dong in front of him suddenly
Hearing this, Xiao Yan nodded his head. His body that was leaning forward
bent down slightly. When his feet touched the ground, his palm also
gently pasted onto the roof tiles, making a perfect landing. There was a
slight soft sound, but other than that, there was not even the slightest
crack on the fragile tiles.
Xiao Yan patted his hand and stood up. He was, however, not pleased with
the way he had landed. If there was a Dou Ling class person below, it was
likely that Xiao Yan would have been discovered by him because of that
Xiao Yan raised his head and eyed Fa Ma and Jia Lao who were seated
comfortably on the huge roof. Clearly, they had been here for quite a
while and were currently smiling as they eyed Hai Bo Dong and Xiao Yan
who were hurrying over.
After sweeping over the roof, Xiao Yan and Hai Bo Dong appeared by Fa
Ma’s and Jia Lao’s side. The four pairs of eyes exchanged glances and
all of them laughed quietly.
“I knew that you would follow.” Fa Ma smiled and said as he eyed Xiao
“I am also quite interested in that fellow. He has such a terrifying
ability at such an age. This kind of talent can be called abnormal.”
Xiao Yan sighed. If that fellow was really as old as he appeared on the
surface, it was indeed quite a blow to others. Seeing the dexterous
manner he displayed when refining medicine, it was likely that he should
be around a tier four alchemist. A seventeen year old tier four
alchemist. Xiao Yan clicked his tongue. Back then, when Gu He reached a
tier four alchemist, his age was nearly thirty. Yet this person was
around half his age.
If his age was true, just what kind of terrifying person would he be once
he gradually grew older in the future. Tier seven? Or perhaps tier eight.
This kind of level was basically sufficient to stand at the peak of the
Dou Qi continent!
Even the current Xiao Yan had merely just stepped into the level of a
tier three alchemist. This was only the case because of the ‘Green
Lotus Core Flame’. When comparing the two of them, the large gap
between them caused people to be stunned.
“It should not be possible.” Seeing Xiao Yan’s shocked face, Fa Ma
shook his head and voiced his thoughts, “If there was really such a
genius appearing within the Chu Yun Empire, there would have been an
uproar long ago. It is impossible that we did not receive even the
slightest news. After all, the news of such a talented seventeen year old
alchemist would really be overly maddening.”
“Hey, why are you randomly guessing about that here. Let’s hurry and
go investigate. If you are really uneasy, then…” Jia Lao by the side
laughed faintly and his hand performed a horizontal cut. For such a
strong person, he could have almost no emotional fluctuations when
killing a person. Killing people to them was as if they were killing a
chicken. He was in such a profound realm that Xiao Yan could not stop
from smiling bitterly at.
“Ke ke, let’s go.” Fa Ma smiled and nodded without voicing any
disagreement. Evidently, he had quietly admitted that this was a course
of action that was not impossible. He smiled at Hai Bo Dong and Xiao Yan,
and took the lead in moving his body, flashing towards a luxurious inn
toward the south of the city.
As he eyed the three human figures flashing past in front of him, Xiao
Yan hesitated briefly before he began to closely follow them. That fellow
had not the slightest relationship with him. If the fellow was killed,
then so be it. In any case, Xiao Yan did not have a good impression of
that fellow. He was not some diabolical person. If others did not offend
him, he would not offend others. When faced with people who had no
relation to him, however, Xiao Yan could still reach the state of being
Their quick movement this time around continued for a few minutes before
it came to a stop with a waving gesture from Fa Ma at the front.
“That fellow is currently living here.” Fa Ma landed on the roof
without the slightest abnormal sound. When his gaze watched Xiao Yan
rushing over, he suddenly waved his sleeves and a soft force covered the
point where Xiao Yan landed. This time around, the latter did not create
even the slightest sound.
Xiao Yan nodded gratefully toward Fa Ma before quietly standing by Hai Bo
Dong’s side. He knew that on such an occasion, he only needed to be an
“Hei, this fellow seems to have made some preparations.” Jia Lao
suddenly laughed coldly. At this moment, a spot some distance in front of
his feet had an extremely fine black line stretched out. Xiao Yan looked
over only to find that two tiny black colored bells were hung at the two
ends of the black line.
“Small tricks.” A hand was waved and a ferocious force quietly
floated over the air. The two black colored small bells did not even emit
the slightest sound when they were shook to nothingness.
“Allow me.” Hai Bo Dong smiled. His shrivelled hand that was like
rotten wood slowly extended out from his sleeves. A faint white colored
fog was shrouding his hand. That icy cold air caused the surrounding
temperature to instantly be reduced significantly.
As he pressed his palms gently downward, a white colored fog covered over
the tile. Finally, it swiftly began spreading outward. In an instant, it
shrouded the entire roof.
“Ice Mirror!” Eyeing the white colored fog that was shrouding the
place, Hai Bo Dong softly cried out. The fog swiftly coagulated, finally
turning into a layer of thin ice that covered the roof.
“Appear!” Hai Bo Dong once again cried out softly. Xiao Yan suddenly
had a bizarre realization. This vast expanse of white, thin ice actually
began to become illusionary. At one instance, a spacious room was
projected on the thin ice, much like a movie being played, imprinting all
the bodies within it clearly onto the ice layer.
Once he completed all this, Hai Bo Dong patted his hand. He eyed Xiao
Yan’s astonished face and could not help but smile and explain, “It
is just a little trick. I used the cold air to invade into the room.
After which, it coalesced into ice fragments that are not easy to
discover. Finally, the reflection of these ice fragments will project all
that is within.”
“What a brilliant control over the ice.” Xiao Yan praised.
“It is only a little trick and only has this little effect. It isn’t
worth mentioning.” Hai Bo Dong smiled as he waved his hand. Although
this was what he spoke with his mouth, Hai Bo Dong did not hide the pride
on his face.
With a smile, Xiao Yan threw his gaze toward the ice layer under his
feet. Currently, the room was void of anyone. It was likely that the gray
robed young man had yet to return.
“Let’s wait.” Once he said these words, Fa Ma sat cross-legged on
the ice layer, closed his eyes and rested.
Xiao Yan smiled bitterly and nodded. He could only sit down. When he
touched the ice layer, he did not sense the slightest cold air. It was
likely that the low temperature on the ice had already been suppressed by
Hai Bo Dong. Immediately, Xiao Yan once again thought even more highly of
his ability to control ice.
As Xiao Yan and the others each became quiet, the roof descended into
silence. When this silence persisted for nearly half an hour, the
room’s door within the ice layer suddenly moved. Hai Bo Dong, who had
his eyes tightly shut, was first to sense something and opened them. He
pressed his hands down at Fa Ma and Jia Lao by the side, who had also
sensed something. After which, he lowered his head and stared at the ice
After the room’s door moved, a gray robed person slowly walked in. That
tender young man’s face was that of the dark horse who had been the
most shocking person in the Grand Meeting today.
Seeing the gray robe man who had just entered, Xiao Yan involuntarily
suppressed his breathing. He did not dare make the slightest movement
with his body as his eyes stared intently at the other parties’ every
Once the gray robed person entered the room, he did not do any strange
actions. He shut the door properly and randomly washed up before sitting
cross-legged on the bed to adjust his condition.
Xiao Yan knit his eyebrows slightly at the gray robed young man’s
ordinary action. He licked his lips, turned his head and eyed Hai Bo
Dong’s three man group who were still quietly waiting. Xiao Yan could
only continue turning his gaze downward and patiently waited.
It was the dead of night after an hour had passed. The gray robed young
man, who was adjusting his condition, suddenly opened his eyes. His dark
and cold gaze slowly swept across the room. After which, he descended
from the bed and gently closed all of the windows in the room. Finally,
his hands were placed behind his back as he raised his head and swept his
gaze to every corner of the room, engaging in a detailed scan of the
Standing on the roof, Xiao Yan eyed the gray robed young man who had
raised his head and scanning the beams. He could not help but swallow a
mouthful of saliva. As one could see the interior using the ice layer, it
was as though the gray robed young man was staring at their group darkly
and coldly while they watched him.

However, it was fortunate that this was an illusion on Xiao Yan’s part.
Those ice fragments that Hai Bo Dong had fixed up were at very covert
locations. Therefore, once he had swept his gaze once around, the gray
robe young man heaved a sigh of relief.
“Humph, what a crappy Grand Meeting. Once I obtain the champion
position here, I will make sure that the reputation of the Jia Ma
Empire’s Alchemist Association is disgraced. Once the association loses
the trust of the alchemists, it will be finished!” The gray robe young
man twisted his neck and suddenly said with a cold laugh.
The gray robe young man’s hand touched his face and frowned slightly as
he softly mumbled something. With a flip of his palm, a pale-red colored
medicinal pill appeared in it.
Damn ‘Appearance Recovery Pill’. Although it can allow one to
returned to his appearance when he was young, it merely affects the
surface. Ah, if it were not for wanting to reduce the reputation of the
Jia Ma Empire’s Alchemist Association within other countries, our
association would not need to spend such a great effort to refine this
kind of priceless thing. Moreover, if one wanted to recover one’s
previous appearance, one would continually need to eat a specific
medicinal pill. This kind of consumption is too large.” The gray robed
young man softly muttered. He squeezed the pale-red colored medicinal
pill into his mouth. He then made a slight chewing movement before
swallowing it into his body.
Not long after consuming the red colored medicinal pill, the tender face
of the gray robe young man within the room suddenly began to tremble in a
frightening manner. At the same time, his figure had also grew taller by
quite a bit. In merely an instant, the tender young man around seventeen
years old had stunned everyone as he changed into a middle aged large man
with a dark and cold expression.
“Sure enough, there is something fishy with this fellow.” As he
watched the scene that had occurred within the room, the eyes that he
used to stare at the ice layer slowly widened.
