Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-340
A cool wind cut through the sky, causing the startled and absentminded
Nalan Yanran to recover. After she did so, she waved her hand and as a
conditional reflex, she appeared to be trying to grab the light sword
which had been shot explosively downward. However, with her current
strength, it was already a great strain to display the ‘Wind’s
Peak’. It was impossible for her to direct it like her limbs.
Therefore, she could only watch with her eyes as the longword, which
carried an impressive force from all directions, as it violently smashed
like a hot sun toward Xiao Yan standing in the open ground!
Her heart was currently a total mess. She understood that in her heart
she held a favorable impression, and perhaps a little spirit of
competition of never wanting to admit, toward the young man called Yan
Xiao. A man who possessed strength that subdued others, without having a
It was due to having these complicated emotions that Nalan Yanran
abandoned the indifference she usually had when speaking to others in her
conversations with Yan Xiao. Her warm and soft tone was something she had
used for the first time in many years on a male who was not her elder or
Although the time she wasn’t in contact with ‘Yan Xiao’ for very
long, Xiao Yan had used this identity to unbridledly squander all of his
outstanding ability that caused people to be repeatedly shocked. With the
‘Heavenly Flame’ in his hand, he cured the ‘Searing Poison’ which
even Pill-King Gu He could do nothing about. When he participated in the
Alchemist Grand Meeting, he stood out from various outstanding alchemists
from various countries. Moreover, he had even been the savior at the very
last moment to turn the tide of the competition, creating a miracle under
a hopeless situation and helped the empire’s alchemist association
snatch back their honor which they were about to lose.
One by one, theses feats, which caused people’s blood to boil, had
caused a countless number of different young ladies to feel an affection
for him. Under the aura of these kinds of prominent results, even an
outstanding lady like Nalan Yanran could not resist feeling a little
dazzled. What girl has never imagined within her heart that the prince
charming she loves not receiving cheers from tens of thousands of people?
Without a doubt, heroes love beauties, but similarly beauties also love
heroes. The action of ‘Yan Xiao’ back then, where he did his best to
protect the reputation of the Jia Ma Empire’s Alchemist Association,
may not have been his original intention, but in the eyes of the Jia Ma
Empire’s citizens, he was worthy of the word ‘hero’. Regardless of
how indifferent and haughty Nalan Yanran was, she was also a lady.
Moreover, the moment that the young man had received tens of thousands of
cheers was indeed also the moment where he became the most attractive to
From the messy emotions in her heart, Nalan Yanran even had the impulse
to pull back the longsword earlier. However, after she failed this
action, she suddenly became quiet. She bit her bottom red lip with the
back of her teeth as she stared at Xiao Yan below. The emotions within
her eyes was like tens of thousands of threads being entangled together,
appearing complicated and difficult to separate.
Xiao Yan lifted his head and eyed the piercing glow which was becoming
increasingly large in his eyes. He had also discovered the reactions of
those people around him, but he was not too concerned. As something that
would be exposed sooner or later, he did not think of hiding his other
identity for very long.
Green-colored and purple-colored flames slowly rose on his hands. The
pressuring force that hit him from the sky above pressed the clothes
tightly against Xiao Yan’s skin. The purple-colored flame flickered
repeatedly. Only the cluster of green-colored flame swayed with the wind
and did not show any sign of weakening.
Xiao Yan raised his hands to an equal height and immediately but slowly
narrowed the distance between them. Seemingly having sensed the imminent
collision, the two flames suddenly began to fluctuate intensely. The
flame seedlings crazily began to leap around as their hot temperatures
began to swiftly rise.

“What is he thinking of doing?” As they eyed the strange action of
Xiao Yan’s, Fa Ma, Gu He, and the others on the huge trees were all
stunned and their faces were at a loss.
“This fellow is actually thinking of merging two different kinds of
flames together?” Gu He was indeed worthy of being called a tier six
alchemist. After some thought, he understood Xiao Yan’s intention. His
face was instantly stunned. “Is he crazy? He is actually thinking of
merging two different flames? Isn’t he afraid of the backlash from the
As a tier six alchemist, Gu He naturally had a clear understanding of the
resistance and incompatibility of two different flames. The difficulty of
trying to successfully merge two different flames together was almost
unimaginable. Even Gu He himself did not dare guarantee that he had that
kind of ability. Of course, he had also never attempted such a thing
before. After all, not everyone in this world had Xiao Yan’s ruthless
vigor, where one went all out without fearing death. For an alchemist,
the backlash of a flame was the most terrifying thing.
Fa Ma exchanged glances with Jia Xing Tian. They may also have had some
doubts present on their forehead, but with the prior miracle created at
the Alchemist Grand Meeting, they understood not to carelessly look down
on this little fellow who was still quite young. There did not appear to
be any shortage of miracles when it came to this extraordinary young man.
“Is he about to use that thing?” As he eyed Xiao Yan’s action, Hai
Bodong’s brow twitched. His hands began to feel a little uneasy.
Although he knew that this type of merger did not pose any threat to him,
Hai Bodong had some psychological trauma after that extremely large scale
explosion from the merging the other time, which had nearly caused a few
Dou Huang to meet their demise. Therefore, as long as he saw this fellow
merging flames, he could not resist having an impulse to disappear
somewhere far away.
However, it was fortunate that Hai Bodong did not lose himself as he did
the last time. He forcefully suppressed his Qi in his heart, which had
become a little hurried, while his eyes stared intently at the
The green and purple-colored flames grew increasingly close. A ferocious
energy ripple repeatedly surged out from the two flames. Occasionally,
the flame seedlings would spring forward emitting a loud explosion that
was like a wave of thunder, causing everyone present to become a little
Xiao Yan’s expression was calm as he eyed the changes of the two
different flames. He was quiet for a moment before his hands instantly
and abruptly clapped heavily together.
The two-colored flames were violently knocked against each other. Waves
of muffled thundering sounds were repeatedly emitted from Xiao Yan’s
palm. However, Xiao Yan totally ignored them. He rubbed his hands
slightly together and a Spiritual Strength was spread out of his body in
a lightning like manner. Immediately, it wrapped around the two clusters
of flame and following his past experience, he began to control it with
great familiarity and ease.
As the rubbing between Xiao Yan’s hands grew increasingly fast, a faint
glow suddenly began to spread from his palms, just like that of muffled
thunder. A moment later, the muffled thunder came to a sudden stop. Xiao
Yan gently exhaled. His palms, which were tightly held together,
gradually parted. A green-purple double-colored glow from his palm
suddenly pervaded all over.
The brilliant glow gradually weakened. As everyone’s eyes hurriedly
swept over, their faces were immediately stunned as they watch the green
purple flame lotus which was slowly rotating, suspended above Xiao
“This is…” Gu He was shocked as he watched the two-colored flame on
Xiao Yan’s hand. His mouth parted as he instantly swept his Spiritual
Strength, which was spread all over the open ground, over that flame
lotus. His eyes instantly and abruptly shrunk.
“What a huge violent energy. The ‘Heavenly Flame’ and another flame
merged together, resulting in a huge explosive force to form due to their
incompatibility. This fellow is actually able to perform this step.” As
a tier six alchemist, Gu He clearly understood that merging two flames
together could create an extremely huge amount of explosive energy.
However, trying to merge two flames together and getting it to explode
upon instruction required the person controlling it to maintain the two
flames at an equilibrium. It was difficult to control such an
equilibrium. Should any of the two flames break this equilibrium, these
two flames would first explode before they could be shot out. If this
happened, not only would Xiao Yan fail to hurt his opponent, but he would
also end up causing himself to be seriously injured, losing more than he
Gu He did not know if he could perfectly merge the two kinds of flames
with his own ability. This was because he had never tried doing so.
However, with his many years of experience, he could tell that the
difficulty of this kind of merger should not be inferior to that of
refining a tier four or even a tier five medicinal pill. Nevertheless,
the young man below appeared to have easily and smoothly completed this
extremely dangerous merging. How could this not cause Gu He to feel shock?
“There is no grievances in losing against him.” Gu He sighed, turned
his head around and spoke to Liu Ling.
Liu Ling’s expression was serious as he nodded his head. Although his
spiritual perception could not possibly be as meticulous as Gu He’s, he
could still vaguely sense just what kind of enormous energy that the
two-colored flame lotus, which was merely around the size of his palm,
“It is really difficult to say just who will win or lose this match.”
Gu He mumbled as he shook his head.
“What is that thing that he has created?” Yun Leng, who was on the
stone platform, frowned and asked uncertainly upon seeing the green
purple flame lotus suspended above Xiao Yan’s hand.
“No idea.” The few elders beside him looked at each other and shook
their heads in ignorance.
Yun Leng knit his brows tightly together. He slowly fondled his beard
with his hand. For some unknown reason, an uneasiness had rose within his
All the gazes present on the open ground were gathered on Xiao Yan’s
palm. Although they were uncertain what kind of power that green-purple
flame lotus had, the Misty Cloud Sect’s disciples appeared to have
sensed something. A couple of the disciples who were nearer to the
battleground of the two of them could not stand the heat and had
increased the thickness of the defensive cover on the surface of their
“What a strong energy. This fellow is really more and more difficult to
see through. His trump cards appear to come out one after another
endlessly.” Fa Ma lifted his gaze from the flame lotus and exchanged
glances with Jia Xing Tian. He then shook his head as he sighed with a
little worry in his heart. Since they had come to know this fellow, the
two of them had felt the sense of shock an unknown number of times.
Xiao Yan’s hands slowly moved up and down. That suspended green-colored
flame lotus also followed his hand as it repeatedly moved in the same
direction. Xiao Yan raised his head. The pressure brought about by that
sharp and hot sword nearly caused Xiao Yan’s body to incline slightly.
Xiao Yan parted his feet slightly as that huge amount of energy pouring
down discharged onto the ground. He inhaled a deep breath and was silent
for a moment. His finger abruptly flicked out the lotus as he softly
muttered, “Go, ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame!”
As his voice fell, the green purple flame lotus abruptly left his hand,
turned into a flowing light which flashed toward the hot sunlight sword.
Under the watch of countless of tensed gazes on the open ground, the two
rays of light swiftly flashed in midair. Finally, they violently collided
around ten meters from the ground much like two meteorites.
The sound of a huge explosion reverberated throughout the entire Misty
Cloud Mountain at this very moment!
