Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-320
“Hei, so what if you’ve recovered. You want to refine a medicinal
pill that surpasses the one in my cauldron during the remaining time
which is half of the allocated time? Ha ha, you should do things within
your means. Otherwise, you will only be a joke to others. Ha ha.” Yan
Li laughed coldly as he eyed Xiao Yan and mocked him.
Xiao Yan smiled, but ignored his mocking words. With a gentle wave of his
hand, a breeze blew away the dark black soot on the rock table. He
flicked his finger gently and a huge amount of medicinal ingredients once
again completely filled the rock table.
Xiao Yan’s body was as straight as a pen as he stood in front of the
rock table. His hands were slowly extended. After a short silence, a
green colored flame seedling rose from his body and adhered to the
surface of his clothes. Not long after the first wisp of green colored
flame seedling appeared, clusters of flames began to continuously surge
from within Xiao Yan’s body. Finally, the green colored flame had
actually completely wrapped Xiao Yan within. The raging green colored
flame rendered him into a green colored flame person.
“Are those all ‘Heavenly Flame’? Just how much spiritual strength
is needed to control so many of these ‘Heavenly Flames’?” All of
the alchemists on the open ground involuntarily inhaled a breath of cold
air as they eyed Xiao Yan, who had almost become a flame person, with
During the time that the green flame was rising on Xiao Yan’s body,
Little Princess and Liu Ling, who were preparing to extract their pills,
were also shaken until they were stunned. Yan Li, who was on another side
may have controlled his expression well, but his eyelids also began
twitching at this moment. He could not understand why this young person
was able to display an ability that shocked and surprised everyone after
experiencing such a blow.
“This little fellows Spiritual Strength seems to be much stronger than
before.” On the high platform, Fa Ma’s comforted voice carried some
envy as he watched Xiao Yan whose entire body was wrapped in flame,
feeling surprised. “He chose the correct path earlier and obtained a
breakthrough under pressure. This kind of powerful Spiritual Strength is
something that even some of the elders in the association have difficulty
comparing with. He gained quite a lot this time around!”
It was common knowledge that the Spiritual Strength of an alchemist could
not be actively trained with a purpose. It can only slowly become more
powerful over time. Of course, there is nothing absolute in this world
and there are always exception for everything. In this large Dou Qi
continent, there are those lucky people who were able to enter various
strange conditions due to their luck. Under these kinds of extremely
mysterious conditions, those lucky people obtain the reward of having
their Spiritual Strength increase greatly. Currently, the one that Xiao
Yan had displayed was extremely similar to that kind of condition. Thus,
even a alchemist grandmaster like Fa Ma could not help but be a little
“Does he still have any chance of victory?” Hai Bodong fondled his
beard and smiled as he asked.
“I don’t know.” Fa Ma shook his head slightly and let out a soft
sigh, “I will still stick to that line of mine. Everything would have
to rely on Yan Xiao’s performance. Although Yan Xiao’s current
condition is spectacular, but the other party is not a simple person.
I’m afraid that there will be another very close and fierce
“He is about to begin the refinement.” Hai Bodong nodded slightly as
his eyes that was watching the open ground abruptly brightened.
On the open ground, Xiao Yan, whose entire body was wrapped within the
flame, slowly raised his hand. A surging green colored flame violently
rushed out from his finger. Immediately, it was poured into the medicinal
cauldron. In just the blink of an eye, the turbulent flame had already
began writhing and burning within the cauldron.
As he watched the flame within the cauldron, Xiao Yan flicked his finger
gently. A few medicinal ingredients on the stone table were skillfully
thrown into the medicinal cauldron at the same time. Immediately, the
green flame pounced on them, wrapping them up and began to wildly burn
and refine them.
This time around, Xiao Yan’s refinement was clearly much faster than
what it was a moment ago. Moreover, he no longer had any cautious
feelings nor any fearful movements of his limbs as he performed his task.
When he controlled the ‘Heavenly Flame’, he no longer had the
slightest hesitation. A leisured and unforced imposing presence faintly
appeared whenever he gestured and moved. This kind of presence would
usually only appear on those extremely experienced alchemist grandmasters
like Fa Ma.
One by one, the medicinal ingredients were thrown in by Xiao Yan. After
which, his other hand would control the refined essence of the
ingredients within the cauldron and stored them into jade bottles. Under
the condition where he used both his hands together and released his
Spiritual Strength to its peak, the medicinal ingredients that were
placed on the rock table were swiftly being turned into the essence
ingredients needed to refine the ‘Three-Line Green Spirit Pill’ at a
Xiao Yan, who had once again cheered up and began refining, had
undoubtedly raised the atmosphere of the open ground to the climax. The
Little Princess and Liu Ling, whom many had placed their hopes on after
Xiao Yan’s earlier failure, had performed poorer than Yan Li due to
their weaker abilities. In this kind of situation where everyone was
about to see the other party become the champion of their country in
front of their eyes, the recovery of Xiao Yan, whom everyone had placed
the greatest hopes in before, had undoubtedly caused the countless people
in the audience to sigh in relief. Therefore, the countless gazes from
the seating areas at both sides of the open ground were currently focused
on the human figure on the open ground who was wrapped in the green
colored flame. A deafening cheer resounded throughout the place.
“Hmph.” Hearing the noisy cheer, Yan Li’s dark and cold pupils
drifted toward the direction Xiao Yan was at. He eyed the graceful and
smooth refining manner and a surprise and solemness finally flashed
across Yan Li’s eyes. From the other party’s Spiritual Strength which
had suddenly become much stronger as well as his graceful presence, Yan
Li clearly understood that this young person had not only recovered from
the blow he received from his failure, and also obtained a breakthrough
of his mind from such a hopeless situation. This kind of mental strength
was really terrifying.
“This fellow does indeed have some foundation. It is just that I
don’t know just which old fellow is able to teach such a student.
Looking at his performance, it was clear that he is much more outstanding
than Gu He’s disciple. Hei, the reputation of Pill-King Gu He is not
entirely true. At the very least when it came to teaching, he is far
inferior to another.” Yan Li coldly laughed in his heart. He turned his
gaze toward the flame raging in his medicinal cauldron. From the
transparent mirror of the medicinal cauldron, he could clearly see that
an initially formed medicinal pill was rotating within the flame.
“Soon, I am about to succeed.” As he eyed the initial formed of the
medicinal pill which was about to be completed, Yan Li braced up his
spirit. Pride faintly surfaced on his tender face. He definitely had
absolute confidence in the medicinal pill which he had refined!
Xiao Yan’s hands, which were wrapped within the flame, were repeatedly
shifting toward the rock table. Following their swift movement, the
medicinal ingredients on the table were quickly reduced. On the other
side, the number of jade bottles that contained the essence of the
ingredients were increasing.

Currently, the medicinal pills that Little Princess and Liu Ling had
refined were already formed. They beckoned with their palms and the
medicinal pills shot out from the medicinal cauldrons and were stored
into jade bottles. They eyed the colored pill fragrance which was
repeatedly seeping out from Yan Li’s medicinal cauldron and the both of
them let out a soft depressed sigh. Immediately, they lifted their heads
and turned their gazes toward the position Xiao Yan was at. Currently, he
had become the only one who had some chance of surpassing Yan Li.
The question of which party would obtain the champion spot of the Jia Ma
Empire’s Alchemist Grand Meeting this time around, was up to the
ability Xiao Yan displayed.
However, if any person were able to see under the green colored flame
where no one could discover what was happening, they would definitely
become stunned. This was because, Xiao Yan, who appeared to be in his
peak condition to those of the outside world, was currently closing his
eyes and frowning slightly. At one glance, it was as though he had
descended into a: half-asleep, half-awake, mysterious condition.
Although Xiao Yan’s eyes were indeed closed, his senses was able to
clearly see every single occurrence in the outside world even more
clearly than what his eyes could. His surge in Spiritual Strength within
the medicinal cauldron had even caused him to be able to clearly see how
the medicinal ingredients were gradually fragmented and broken after
being burned by the flame, leaving behind the necessary kinds of
ingredient essence under the high temperature.
Xiao Yan slowly smoothed out his breath in his heart. He could clearly
sense that the refining of pills this time around was the first time that
he had not relied on Yao Lao and yet displayed his peak and perfection.
Under this kind of condition, Xiao Yan even had the confidence to
challenge a tier five alchemist.
None of the medicinal ingredients which were covered by the green colored
flame were even slightly damaged as the temperature of the ‘Heavenly
Flame’ changed with Xiao Yan’s desire. At this moment, he had even
managed to control its temperature to exactly match the one recorded in
the medicinal formula.
“The purification is complete.” At one instance, the medicinal
ingredient on the stone table were finally completely refined. Only then
did Xiao Yan slowly open his tightly shut eyes. His body stilled for an
instant before he abruptly waved his sleeves. A force shook and broke all
the twenty over jade bottle in front of him. Following which, a shapeless
force sucked the ingredient essences within them and threw them all into
the medicinal cauldron. The flame once again became turbulent at this
This time around, the time needed for Xiao Yan to refine the ingredients
had been reduced by nearly half compared to the last time.
A green flame writhed within the medicinal cauldron. The twenty plus
ingredient essences were completely wrapped within Xiao Yan’s Spiritual
Strength and were slowly being merged.
Like flowing water, time quietly passed by. At this moment, there was
merely less than an hour left until the time when the examination would
end. On the other side, the colored pill fragrance that was emitted from
Yan Li’s medicinal cauldron was growing increasingly rich. The
medicinal pill that he had refined was clearly about to be formed!
“The Three-Line Green Spirit Pill is about to succeed.”
Fa Ma was staring intently at the open ground when he suddenly softly
said at a certain instance. However, his face did not reveal any
appearance of being relax. He knew that it was impossible to defeat Yan
Li by just relying on an ordinary Three-Line Green Spirit Pill!
The medicinal cauldron in the open ground where the green flame was
rolling suddenly became quiet. A faint pill fragrance was scattered and a
green colored round medicinal pill that was like an emerald was
repeatedly rotating within the cauldron.
As the medicinal pill rotated, the green colored flame that was covering
the surface of Xiao Yan’s body suddenly began to shrink swiftly. In the
blink of an eye, the green colored flame began withdrawing into Xiao
Yan’s body like the tide. At the moment when the green flame within the
cauldron was about to be completely withdrawn, Xiao Yan’s chewing mouth
was abruptly opened. A purple colored flame was once again violently
spurt out before it was poured into the medicinal cauldron.
Fa Ma’s heart was suddenly raised as he saw Xiao Yan once again spurt
out the Purple Flame. His eyes stared intently in the direction where
Xiao Yan was at.
If Xiao Yan were to once again fail this time around, the champion
position would completely miss him. At the same time, the reputation of
the Alchemist Association would be damaged because of this.
