Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-425
Under the focus of a countless number of nearly dull gazes, the dust that
permeated throughout the arena slowly dispersed. The complete mess and
rock fragments that appeared in their sights caused the viewing gallery
to emit waves of sounds created by the sudden inhalation of cold air.
At this moment, the hard arena, which was originally created by neatly
piling huge rocks on each other, had actually turned into complete
shambles. A deep, expansive pit appeared in the middle of the ruins.
Strange rocks were strewn everywhere around the deep pit. Looking at
their appearance, the competition arena looked completely different from
before. No one had expected that the collision between Xiao Yan and Bai
Shan’s three man team would actually create such a terrifying
“This fellow… he really is too abnormally strong.” Xiao Yu was
stunned as she observed the competition arena that had turned into ruins.
It was a long while later before she let out a deep breath of air and
spoke with a bitter smile. Even though she had already thought highly of
her cousin, who had his own independent and special behavior since young,
even she did not expect that this fellow would actually become so strong
until his strength caused people to become ashamed after not seeing him
for only two years.
At her side, Instructor Ruo Ling nodded as she shared the same feelings
deep within her. She muttered quietly in her heart. Just exactly how did
this fellow train during these two years? Back then, at Wu Tan City, Xiao
Yan may have had extraordinary talent, but even after going all out, he
could barely survive twenty exchanges with her. Now, however, Instructor
Ruo Ling herself thought that her chances of victory were not very high
if she were to fight Xiao Yan.
In the ruined arena, where a countless number of gazes had gathered, a
green-colored figure suddenly flashed onto the top of a huge rock. Her
gaze swept over the ruins and finally stopped at that huge pit. There
were still three weak Qis present there.
The dust that rose from the deep pit also gradually settled down. The
situation within finally appeared in front of the eyes of everyone
Within the deep pit, there was an area which was relatively flat. There
were no rock fragments in that area. Instead, there was a thick layer of
rock dust. Clearly, at the area where both the energies of both parties
collided, the frightening energy explosion had shattered the rock
fragments to dust. From this, one could see just how powerful the Dou Qi
displayed by the four of them was!
In the empty spot within the pit, three human figures were holding onto
the rock wall behind them with their hands. That was the only way they
could support their bodies shakily. At this moment, Bai Shan and the
other two were extremely miserable looking. Dust covered more than half
of their faces. There were also quite a number of spots on their clothes
which were tattered. Moreover, the faces of the three of them were pale.
Traces of blood were vaguely visible on the corner of their mouths. Their
harried breathing had already lost the steadiness it had before. Clearly,
under that ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’ explosion attack of Xiao Yan,
which one would not dare to receive head on, Bai Shan and the two others
were seriously injured.
A countless number of gazes paused on the miserable looking bodies of the
three of them. There was faint disbelief in their eyes. The three very
powerful, top students within Jia Nan Academy this time around, were
actually reduced to such a state by the hands of a young man who had
merely arrived at the academy less than three days ago?
“Where is Xiao Yan?” Bai Shan wiped the blood trace from the corner
of his mouth. He raised his head and his gaze looked all around him. A
sleek redness surfaced on his pale face as he said in a hoarse voice,
“Looks like he should have been buried under the ruins in that energy
explosion. Fighting one against three. He is indeed wildly arrogant but
his ending is not good either.”
Hu Jia and Wu Hao by his side ignored him. They swallowed their saliva
and moistened their dry throats. A long while later Hu Jia clenched her
teeth and said, “Dammit. If I had known earlier, I would not have
listened to your incitement. We totally cannot mess with that Xiao Yan!”
“He is very strong, stronger than all of us!” Wu Hao lifted his head.
Most of his large, blood-colored robe had been torn. Therefore, it
revealed a somewhat white, young face. Wu Hao did not appear very
handsome and could only be called ordinary looking. However, the dense,
cold, bloody aura that would occasionally flash across his eyes would
cause people, who were exchanging looks with him, to feel creeped out. At
this moment, solemnness and fear flashed across his eyes, which usually
contained a hidden killing aura, for the first time.
“So what if he is strong? Under the combined attack of the three of us,
even if he could live, he would at least have broken an arm or a leg!”
Hearing the implication of fighting Xiao Yan from the words of the two of
them, Bai Shan’s eyebrows were involuntarily knit together as he coldly
Bai Shan’s words had just been uttered when a piece of huge rock at the
edge of the deep pit in the ruins suddenly blasted apart. The movement
attracted all the gazes present, including that of Bai Shan and the two
others who were panting with their mouths wide open.
Faint dust permeated over from where the large rock burst apart.
“He… he hasn’t died! I can sense his Qi!” Wu Hao’s eyes stared
intently at the cluster of dust. He inhaled a deep breath of air as he
Bai Shan’s face twitched swiftly by his side. His originally pale face
had turned a lot more pale at this moment. Clearly, this talented
student, who was one of the top people of the year within the Outer
Academy of the Jia Nan Academy, had already formed some fearful emotions
toward the black-robed young man that he would not admit within his
heart. Especially after the soul-stirring large battle earlier.
Under the focus of all the gazes in the stadium, there was suddenly the
soft sound of feet stepping on some rock fragments being emitted from the
dust. After hearing the sound of footsteps, Bai Shan, Hu Jia, and Wu
Hao’s expressions could not help but change.

The sound of footsteps came nearer and nearer. Bai Shan’s eyes did not
blink as he stared at the dust. A while later, his eyes suddenly shrunk.
A black-robed young man, whose clothes were as clean as they were before
the battle, slowly walked out from the dust and appeared in front of
The entire stadium suddenly became quiet as everyone eyed that black robe
which appeared brand-new, as well as the calm face of the young man who
appeared exactly the same as when he entered the arena.
Who would expect that after experiencing the terrifying energy explosion
earlier, this fellow not only did not break his arm or leg as Bai Shan
had anticipated, but his Qi had remained forceful and his exterior
remained tidy. This appearance was like heaven and earth when compared
with the miserable looking Bai Shan, Hu Jia, and Wu Hao.
This difference in appearance had also completely highlighted the victor
this time around! No one would think that Xiao Yan, who could keep his
initial appearance after such an intense battle, did not have the
qualification to become the champion of the Qualifying Competition this
After this fierce fight, the strongest person of the Qualifying
Competition had gradually become clear.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge has indeed become strong. The strength of the
terrifying flame lotus Dou Technique that he had displayed earlier has
almost reached the peak of the Xuan class Dou Techniques…” Xun Er,
who was standing on a huge rock, smiled and whispered to herself before
she eyed the black-robed young man, who was slowly walking out. There was
a faint look of relief and pride currently on her face. She was
unconcerned about whether she could be in the limelight and the focus of
a countless number of people. However, if Xiao Yan was able to display a
strength, which caused people to be shocked, in this kind of place, Xun
Er would feel a happiness from within her heart.
Xiao Yan slowly stepped out from the dust. His expression remained
indifferent as he carelessly glanced at the three of them. Without any
warning, brutality suddenly swarmed into his dark eyes!
At the same time, Xiao Yan moved his body and it suddenly turned into a
black shadow. In a mere instant, it carried a sharp wind sound and a
pressurizing aura as he appeared in front of them, causing the breaths of
the three of them to become stagnant.
“Xiao Yan, what do you plan to do? We are already…” Bai Shan’s
eyes were blurred. He suddenly realized that Xiao Yan had appeared in
front of him. His eyes collided with those dark black pupils and
coincidentally saw the tyranny and killing intent within them.
Immediately, he hurriedly cried out.
However, before his cry sounded, a black shadow swept across his eyes. An
intense pain was transmitted from Bai Shan’s lower abdomen. A huge
force shook his body until it rolled backward and finally smashed
violently into the rock wall. Immediately, the soft sounds of bones
cracking could suddenly be heard.
“Xiao Yan, you…!” The sudden attack also caused Hu Jia and Wu Hao
to be startled. They immediately reacted swiftly. Their bodies pulled
back quickly as they cried out with their mouths.
“How can that kick earlier be so easily offset?” As Hu Jia was
hurriedly pulling back, the black shadow entered into close proximity,
like a ghost while those cold indifferent words sounded.
“Xiao Yan, you dare!” The cold words caused Hu Jia to feel a chill in
her heart. Her voice had also become sharp at this moment. Since she was
young until she had grown up, when had she been abused and beaten in this
manner, especially given her identity and background?
Xiao Yan’s expression was cold. He did not reply to Hu Jia sharp
scream. Without the slightest hesitation, he suddenly swung his right
leg. A powerful force that carried a low and deep sonic boom heavily
swung into Hu Jia’s lower abdomen, while being watched by a countless
number of dull eyes. Following a deep muffled sound, Hu Jia’s body
immediately rubbed against the ground, drawing a scar that was over ten
meters long before she heavily collided with a rock. Immediately, she
spat out a mouthful of fresh blood.
Faced with Xiao Yan’s vengeful chase, Wu Hao did not let out an
involuntary cry, like the two people earlier. He clenched his teeth and
the little blood-colored Dou Qi remaining within him completely surfaced
on his body. When the Dou Qi surfaced, Wu Hao’s speed clearly became
quite a lot faster.
However, how could Wu Hao, who was in a heavily wounded state, compare to
Xiao Yan in terms of speed? The instant after Hu Jia was thrown aside,
the black blur was like a shadow following his body, appearing just
behind him. An indifferent voice along with a ferocious force suddenly
smashed into Wu Hao’s back.
“This is payback for Xun Er. If you are not satisfied, you can come and
find me anytime. Among the three of you I, Xiao Yan, only view you
Wu Hao’s body, which was moving backward, suddenly paused. That
enormous force that was transmitted from his back directly caused Wu
Hao’s body to lean forward and collapse. Finally, he became like a
rolling gourd that rolled over ten times before he forcefully stopped his
rolling body with great difficulty. He wiped the blood trace from the
corner of his mouth, lifted his pale face and eyed the black-robed young
man. The latter had ceased chasing him and was throwing over an
indifferent gaze. Wu Hao swallowed a mouthful of saliva that contained
some blood. In so many years, this was the first time that he had been
beaten to such a state by someone from the same age group.
Wu Hao’s gaze stared intently at the tall and somewhat skinny young man
for a long while. Finally, his hoarse voice spat out a word from his
