Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-383
The ‘Black-Corner Region’, a special region that had been
agglomerated and built up outside of the Jia Nan Academy due to chaos.
There were many people who possessed doubts over why just outside the Jia
Nan Academy, an ancient and long established academy, would possess such
a chaotic region that was totally different from the atmosphere within
the academy. Regardless of the reason, it was the truth that it existed.
Despite numerous suppressions over the many years, the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ was still expanding exponentially at a rate that caused many
people to be stunned. The special property of this region’s extreme
resilience caused the opposing factions, who had the intention of
suppressing the expansion of this region, to feel powerless.
The boundary of the ‘Black-Corner Region’ was extremely long.
Moreover, after these few years of expansion, it had almost become a
small country with clear borders. The only difference between it and
other empires was that other empires had a leader standing right at the
top, while this region was one where everyone fought for themselves.
Various factions repeatedly fought and killed for their own benefit. It
was so chaotic within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ that it was like a
plate of loose sand. However, it was also because of this that the
‘Black-Corner Region’ was able to become increasingly stronger and
larger in such a place as the middle of the continent. Otherwise it was
likely that no faction would sit back and watch this special area, with
shocking destructive strength, swiftly become stronger and soon pose a
threat toward them.
Although the ‘Black-Corner Region’ was renowned throughout the
continent for its chaos, the various kinds of high class Qi Methods, Dou
Techniques, Medicinal Pills, and other unique goods that flowed through
here also attracted many strong people from all over the continent. After
all, regardless of what happened, these few things were necessary to the
point that even they were envious of. Being able to obtain an even higher
class Qi Methods than the one they had been practicing would mean that
they could take another step forward on the journey to becoming a strong
person. This kind of temptation was undoubtedly fatal toward many strong
Therefore, the ‘Black-Corner Region’ was like an extremely dark
bottomless pit. A countless number of unique treasures flowed into that
place from various channels. After that, they would be auctioned off and
sold for sky high prices, causing countless people to fight for them.
Due to the mysterious organization that had suddenly appeared, Xiao
Yan’s originally somewhat relaxed heart had once again tensed up.
Although a clear trace of him had yet to be discovered by that mysterious
organization, Xiao Yan felt a coldness that prickled his back as long as
he thought of how a strong person like Yao Lao had been constrained by
them until he dared not randomly appear.
Being spurred on by this faint coldness that had faintly shrouded his
heart and spirit, Xiao Yan finally understood that the kind of laid-back,
ordinary life he had been living was far too much of a luxury. Currently,
there were far too many of things which he carried on his back. His
father’s disappearance and the mysterious organization chasing after
Yao Lao. All of these mysteries were like a fog of darkness that was
hounding him, causing Xiao Yan to be afraid of sparing even a little
thought about resting.
If he wanted to solve the mystery, he would need very great strength.
Xiao Yan was also clear that the source of his strength was not ordinary
training, but was instead those mysterious ‘Heavenly Flames’ that
existed between the heavens and the earth. Although this kind of action
was dangerous and crazy, for Xiao Yan who possessed the ‘Flame
Mantra’, it was undoubtedly the fastest shortcut for him to become a
In order to quickly increase his strength and allow himself to possess
the strength needed to contend with the mysterious organization when they
came to look for him, he would need to obtain the ‘Fallen Heart
Flame’ within the Jia Nan Academy with the greatest speed.
“I am once again pressed for time. Ah.” A human figure flew past the
somewhat drowsy sky in a lightning-like manner. Xiao Yan lowered his head
and glanced at the trees, which were swiftly flying past below him as he
muttered with a bitter smile.
Ever since Yao Lao had told him about the goals and tendencies of the
mysterious organization, Xiao Yan had abandoned his thought of touring
all the way toward Jia Nan Academy. Instead, he directly activated his
Purple Cloud Wings, and travelled with great hardship, both day and
night, as he moved along the route on the map, and flew toward the
The distance between the Jia Ma Empire and the ‘Black-Corner Region’
was extremely vast. Xiao Yan needed to pass through quite a number of
small countries along the way before he could even reach the border of
the ‘Black-Corner Region’. If he were to cover this great distance by
walking or by riding carriages, he was afraid that he really could not
reach his destination without at least three to five months, or even half
a year’s time. Moreover, this was on the precondition that his journey
was unobstructed. After all, it was impossible for territories within
these small countries to be as peaceful as they were within the Jia Ma
Empire. Due to the terrain, the country’s’ strength or for many other
reasons, battles would usually occur in these places daily. Various
mercenaries engaged in huge chaotic battles for profits. Moreover, when
there came a day when they really did not have any money to spend, these
mercenary companies would turn into notorious bandit troops. As long as
the defensive strength of any merchants whom they met was not very
strong, it was likely that their fortune, along with their women, would
all be snatched away and end up in a miserable state.
By using the Purple Cloud Wings in lieu of walking, Xiao Yan may have
ended up exhausting a great amount of Dou Qi, were it not for the support
of the ‘Energy Recovery Pills’ which he had refined earlier. Adding
to that, his ‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Method had already evolved to the
Middle Level Xuan Class. With the cooperation of the two, Xiao Yan barely
managed to support his long distance flight. However, every two days, he
needed to land on the ground, and begin an in depth training session that
lasted for at least a day in order to recover his nearly numb muscles and
spirit after flying for such a long time.
With him rushing through the journey with all of his strength in this
manner, the ‘Black-Corner Region’, which would have required at least
half a year or more to reach if he were to travel at a laid back pace,
was forcefully reduced by Xiao Yan by more than ten times.
After flying for nearly ten days using the Purple Cloud Wings, the
monotonous mountain range below Xiao Yan suddenly became much closer. He
was slightly startled, and immediately lifted his head to sweep his gaze
over the distant area, only to see dark, black-colored plains at the edge
of his sight. It was like a black line that completely isolated the world
within from the world outside.
“This is the Great Plains of the ‘Black Region’?” Xiao Yan
watched the black line, which was gradually becoming larger in his eyes.
His face, which had been filled with fatigue and dust, suddenly become
very alert. A smile like he had put down a heavy burden spread from the
corner of his mouth. According to the indication of the map, this
‘Great Plains of the Black Region’ was the gateway to the
‘Black-Corner Region’. As long as one stepped into here, one would
have entered that chaotic world which was out of tune with the outside
“We have finally arrived.” Xiao Yan used great force to rub his
large, black eyes. His body slowly descended. Although the
‘Black-Corner Region’ was just a short distance in front of him, he
did not choose to enter it immediately. Since even Yao Lao had repeatedly
emphasized to him about the chaos of this place, he felt that it would
not be wise if he entered this place, where danger lurked around every
corner in his exhausted condition.
“You should recover first. Although it has been extremely tough rushing
this journey these past ten days, you have also received a lot of
benefits. The Dou Qi in your body is only becoming stronger under this
kind of repeated exhaustion.” Yao Lao’s voice sounded from his heart
at this moment.
“Ah.” Xiao Yan nodded. He slowly landed in a mountainous forest and
swiftly scouted around. When he did not discover the presence of any
humans or beasts, he finally relaxed and searched for a covert place. He
sat cross-legged, took out an ‘Energy Recovery Pill’, and popped it
into his mouth. The seal was formed by his hands and he shut his eyes.
As Xiao Yan entered his training mode, faint energy ripples began to seep
out from within his body. A suction force, which was partially visible,
swiftly sucked all the energy around his body into it. After which, it
was refined and poured into the somewhat-dim Dou Crystal within the
vortex. Its appearance was caused by his overdrawn Dou Qi.
The quiet training lasted for nearly half the afternoon. Only then did
the faint energy ripple around Xiao Yan’s body gradually weakened until
it completely disappeared.
Xiao Yan’s tightly shut eyelashes gently twitched. He immediately
opened his eyes and a green-colored flame flashed across those dark eyes.
He opened his mouth slightly, and a mouthful of turbid air contained some
black color as it was being exhaled. The black, turbid air gradually
curled upward. Any leaves which came into contact with it instantly
corroded until nothing was left.
The fatigue which covered Xiao Yan’s face had completely disappeared
the moment he exhaled that mouthful of somewhat strange black air,
Replacing it was a faint, warm, jade-like radiance.
Xiao Yan lifted his head and knit his eyebrows as he watched the faint
amount of rising black air. His eyes narrowed and he suddenly lowered his
head to look at his middle finger. He could see that the originally long
and pale finger had actually once again become as black as ink, appearing
“Is this the ‘Searing Poison’? I thought that it had disappeared by
itself. It had actually been hiding this whole time.” Seeing the black
finger, which had not appeared for a long time, Xiao Yan could not help
but laugh bitterly.
“If this thing is resolved properly, it might be a unique attack of
yours against an enemy. On the other hand, if it is not resolved
properly, it will cause many problems. After all, this kind of toxin has
undergone mutations and has developed a resistance to many different
types of antidotes. Its destructive power is also quite shocking.” Yao
Lao’s voice was somewhat serious as he spoke.
Xiao Yan nodded his head helplessly. He flicked his finger. The black
color swiftly paled, and a moment later, it had completely vanished. That
appearance was as though it had hidden into some secret place that Xiao
Yan could not detect.
“If it were not because I wanted to obtain the ‘Seven Magical Green
Spirit Saliva’ to help teacher’s spirit awaken, I would also not have
helped that old fellow. The promises that he had made were as though he
had farted. Hee hee, he is indeed a crafty person.” Xiao Yan stood up
and suddenly let out a cold laughter. After he helped Nalan Jie
completely expel the poison, that old fellow had an extremely grateful
appearance, but what happened after that? He saw with his own eyes that
Xiao Yan was being chased by the Misty Cloud Sect, who wanted to kill
him, yet Nalan Jie did not make even the slightest move.
“Hu, there is no need to talk about that disappointing old fellow.
Teacher, should we enter the ‘Black-Corner Region’ now?” Xiao Yan
shook his head. He stood at the peak of the mountain as he gazed at the
black colored plain in the distance and asked.

“Ah.” Yao Lao nodded his head. He immediately reminded, “Try to use
your ‘Purple Cloud Wings’ as little as possible within the
‘Black-Corner Region’. A flying Dou Technique is an extremely rare
item and it could be forcefully snatched by others. If you were to meet
some strong person, they might become greedy and end up killing you just
to steal them.”
“Uh?” Xiao Yan was startled. A long while later, he smiled bitterly
and said, “Looks like this damn place really is chaotic without
boundaries. At the very least, the strong people within the Jia Ma Empire
still have some pride. It is extremely rare for someone to attack and rob
another. However, in this place, something like this is considered as
routine and careless as eating at home.”
“Ha ha, if this were not the case, how can the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ have the qualification to be called the most chaotic region in
the entire continent?” Yao Lao laughed out loud, “Alright, little
fellow, let’s go. Although the inside of this place is dangerous and
chaotic, the number of good things will cause one to be dazzled. Aren’t
you planning to help that Hai Bodong gather the medicinal ingredients
needed to refine the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’? You can
definitely find all of them here.”
“It will naturally be good if that is the case.” Xiao Yan rejoiced a
little upon hearing this. Xiao Yan had been bearing in mind the favor
that Hai Bodong had given him in the Jia Ma Empire by using all of his
strength to help him escape twice. The ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple
Pill’, which Xiao Yan owed Hai Bodong, caused a knot in his heart.
Currently being able obtain the medicinal ingredients caused him to sigh
After arranging everything properly, with the enormous Heavy Xuan Ruler
strapped to his back, Xiao Yan twisted his neck and stomped his feet on
the ground. As an explosion of energy was released from under his feet,
Xiao Yan’s body shot forward like an arrow which had left a bow,
turning into a black shadow which dashed toward the dark black grassland.
“Hei, the ‘Black-Corner Region’. I want to see just how chaotic you
