Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-433
Within the spacious study, Hu Gan eyed the wall beside the study, which
was slowly closing. Only then did he turn and face Xiao Yan and the four
others in front of him. He said smilingly: “Alright, it can be
considered that you all obtained your reward. Rest for the next two days.
In two days, you will all be entering the Inner Academy. At that time,
there will be chances for you all to cry bitterly.”
Xiao Yan and the others watched Hu Gan’s smiling manner. They exchanged
glances with one another before nodding slightly.
“That’s right, I will remind you once again that if the new students
entering the academy want to avoid being bullied by the older students,
the only way is for your fist to be harder than theirs. Of course,
students who can enter the Inner Academy are basically the past top
students of the Outer Academy. Their training talent is not weak. Adding
this to the unique training methods in the inner academy, it is likely
going to be a little difficult for you new students, who have just
entered, to catch up to their progress.” Hu Gan’s gaze swept across
the five of them as he said: “Therefore, I advise all of you to try
your best to abandon the enmity between each other and cooperate.
Otherwise, you would suffer quite a bit in the end.”
“Don’t tell me that our hands and legs will be broken or we will be
killed by those fellows?” Hu Jia rolled her eyes, while the other
people were non-committal. In order to be able to become the top five of
the Qualifying Competition, which of them did not have the ability to
“It is unlikely to be the case. After all, this place is an academy,
not a battlefield. However, that feeling of others using their strength
to trample over you is ultimately not a good one, right? Which of you
fellows is not filled with arrogance in your heart?” Hu Gan smiled and
shook his head while he said.
“Alright, if there is nothing else, all of you can go back. Report here
two days from now. I will bring all of you into the academy at that
time.” When he saw Hu Jia twitching her lips, wanting to say something,
Hu Gan’s face immediately became stern as spoke while waving his hands
towards Xiao Yan and the others.
“Deputy Headmaster, thank you for your reminder. We will pay attention
to it.” Xiao Yan nodded a little. He bowed and greeted Hu Gan before he
immediately leaving together with Xun Er. Behind him, Hu Jia and the
other two also left one after another.
“These fellows don’t know what pain really is without having collided
into a wall. Once you enter the Inner Academy, you will realize that
surviving there is very tough. That place has never lacked talent…”
Hu Gan sat on his chair and eyed the few people who had left. He tapped
his finger against his table and said helplessly.
After entering the ‘Book Collection Hall’ and obtaining the thing
which he needed, Xiao Yan used the remaining two days to enter into the
large mountain behind the academy. He used all his effort to search for a
secluded training ground, and thus began to study the two kinds of Dou
Techniques he had obtained.
Although Xiao Yan was not too concerned about Hu Gan’s words, a
premonition within his heart caused him to faintly feel an impulse
telling him that he needed to quickly raise his strength. If he was
alone, it would not matter. However, now that Xun Er was also following
him as they entered into the Inner Academy together, as a man, he
naturally needed to protect her until she did not feel even the slightest
bit of danger. Moreover what Hu Gan had said did have some logic to it.
Which of those people, who could become the top fifty of Jia Nan
Academy’s Outer Academy, were not geniuses who had been gathered from
all over the continent? If he lacked some foundation, even Xiao Yan would
not dare to say that he could muddle along very well within the Inner
Academy that he did not know much about.
Therefore, the current Xiao Yan needed to raise his strength as soon as
possible. He would not be able to make much progress in terms of Dou Qi
cultivation during this short period of time. Therefore, he could only
rely on the two kinds of Dou Techniques in his hands.
“Three Thousand Lightning Movement.”
“Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar.”
One was a Low Level Di class Dou Technique, while the other was a High
Level Xuan class Dou Technique. One was a Agility-type Dou Technique,
while the other, a Sonic-type Dou Technique. One to dodge, one to attack.
If Xiao Yan wanted grasp some of the knowledge of the two Dou Techniques,
it would clearly not be an easy matter, even with Yao Lao’s help.
Therefore, after some consideration, Xiao Yan first placed his focus on
the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’. This High Level Xuan class Dou
Technique was clearly much easier to practice compared to the Low Level
Di class ‘Three Thousand Lightning Movement’. Moreover, it was an
extremely unorthodox attacking technique. If he were to fight with people
in the future, it could obtain the effect of catching someone off guard.
Of course, this so-called ‘much easier to practice’ was built on the
foundation of the comparison between the ‘Three Thousand Lightning
Movement’ and itself. No matter how one put it, the ‘Lion Tiger Gold
Shattering Roar’ also belonged to the High Level Xuan class. If an
ordinary student was able to possess one type of technique of that class,
he would be able to rely on it to stand out amongst his peers. Therefore,
the difficulty of practicing it was also at an extremely tough level.
This was especially so for people like Xiao Yan, who was practicing a
Sonic Dou Technique for the first time. The difficulty was multiplied
when he practiced it.
This place was a small-sized waterfall, which was surrounded by lush,
green, dense forest. A silver river-like waterfall brought a loud
rumbling sound as it flowed off the cliff and rolled down. Finally, it
smashed against the mountain rocks and splashed water everywhere.
On a certain mountain rock, just below the waterfall, a black-robed young
man had his mouth wide open with a flushed expression on his face. He
emitted a soft roar. That roaring sound of his was quite strange. It
appeared like a tiger roar, but also appeared to be a lion roar. The
roaring reverberated throughout the mountain unceasingly before
overlapping with the sound of the waterfall splashing down, shaking the
surface of the lake until circular ripples began to spread outwards.
“*Roar*… *cough*, *cough*…” Xiao Yan once again let out a roaring
sound with a flushed face before he could finally not resist coughing
intensely. He did his best to swallow a mouthful of saliva to moisten his
burning throat. With a bitter laugh, he said: “Isn’t this damn Sonic
Dou Technique too difficult to practice? I have roared for nearly an
entire afternoon. My throat is about to become mute. Yet, it is still
this lethargic tone. Can this really be used to attack?”
At this moment, if one were to carefully listen to Xiao Yan’s voice, it
was clearly much more hoarse compared to two days ago. It appeared that
in order to practice this so-called ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering
Roar’, he had suffered quite some hardship.
“It can already be considered quite good that you can mostly imitate
the roar of a tiger and lion within a day. As long as you continue to
diligently practice, you will sooner or later be able to control the
strength of the roaring sound and not end up causing your own throat to
be injured.” Yao Lao smiling voice sounded within Xiao Yan’s heart.
“I also want to spend the entire day and night imitating. However,
didn’t teacher said that there is a strict daily time limit when one
practices this kind of Sonic Dou Technique? It seemed to be three hours,
right? Once one has exceeded this time limit, one would place an
extremely great burden on one’s throat. If one is not careful, one
might turn into a mute.” Xiao Yan’s hand scratched his throat, which
was beginning to feel some pain, as he helplessly said.
“This is indeed so for an ordinary person. However, with me around, do
you still need to worry about this small problem?” Yao Lao smiled
“Teacher has a solution?” Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this.
He immediately and hurriedly asked.
“Have you gathered all of the medicinal ingredients that I asked you to
prepare last night?”
“They are gathered… the medicinal ingredients warehouse in Jia Nan
City is far richer than that of the Jia Ma Empire. I have let Xun Er help
me to prepare all of the medicinal ingredients that you need.” Xiao Yan
nodded and said.
“Take out the medicinal ingredients. After which, refine one thing by
yourself. I will transmit the medicinal formula into your mind.” As Yao
Lao’s voice sounded, Xiao Yan’s mind suddenly swelled. Immediately,
he felt that there was a heap of information being forcefully stuffed in.
“‘Ice Spirit Throat Protecting Liquid’, an assistance type
medicine. It is able to relieve various searing pains and protect the
throat, such that it would not be affected and destroyed by the sudden
appearance of heated energy. The medicinal ingredients needed to refine
it are: Ice Spirit Leaf, Three Flower Grass and a Water Type Monster
“This is a bauble, which I had successfully researched in the past,
when I had nothing better to do. It can protect your throat. After you
consume this, you need not be concerned with that time limit of the Sonic
Dou Technique. As long as your spirit can endure it, it is up to you how
long you want to roar. Your throat will not become mute.” Yao Lao

Xiao Yan’s eyes brightened when he heard this. He nodded his head
excitedly. If an ordinary person were to practice a Sonic Dou Technique,
he could only practice for a maximum of three hours a day. However, if he
were to consume this so called ‘Ice Spirit Throat Protecting Liquid’,
he would be able to continue to train for a couple of days without
stopping. It was said that hard work could make up for one’s
clumsiness. Xiao Yan believed that he would be able to grasp the essence
of the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ if he went all out and
trained hard during these two days. Moreover, Xiao Yan was not clumsy!
This so called ‘Icy Spirit Throat Protecting Liquid’ basically could
not even be considered a medicinal pill. Although one must pay extreme
attention to some of its refining details, refining it went very smoothly
for Xiao Yan, who had an unusually strong Spiritual Perception.
Therefore, after he took out the medicinal ingredients, which he had
already prepared, he began to raise his hand and refined it. Nearly half
an hour later, the medicinal ingredients, that were placed in front of
him, had already turned into pale-blue liquid and easily filled two
small, jade bottles.
“Ah, not bad. Your ability to control flames has improved very quickly.
Looks like the effect of having an outstanding Spiritual Perception is
quite great.” Yao Lao nodded his head and exclaimed a little as he eyed
the small jade bottles in Xiao Yan’s hand. Although it was not
difficult to refine this so called ‘Icy Spirit Throat Protecting
Liquid’, being able to maintain a success rate of seventy percent on
Xiao Yan’s first attempt at refining it could indeed be considered an
extremely outstanding result.
“Swallow one mouthful every hour. After that, you can practice the
‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ recklessly. If you are lucky, you
might be able to grasp some initial control over it during the remaining
time that you have.” Yao Lao smilingly said: “As for that ‘Three
Thousand Lightning Movement’, you should temporarily steer clear of it.
One reason is that there is not enough time. The second is that
practicing Di class Dou Techniques is not as easy as you think.
Therefore, we can only wait until after you enter the inner academy
before I can find some opportunity to help you design a training
Xiao Yan nodded. He first kept one small jade bottle before pouring a
mouthful of liquid from the other bottle into his mouth. The moment the
‘Icy Spirit Throat Protecting Liquid’ rolled down his throat, it
turned into an icy cool feeling that began spreading out. Xiao Yan was
able to clearly feel that these icy cool liquid were covering the spot
where his throat was. The remnant searing pain, that had been present
earlier, swiftly disappeared at this moment.
“Hei, it is indeed a good thing… now, let us strive to grasp the
initial control over this ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ during
the remaining time.”
As he sensed the searing pain disappear, Xiao Yan could not help but feel
a little strange at the swift effect of this liquid. He parted his mouth
and smiled. Immediately, he inhaled a long breath of somewhat moist air
before that strange roaring sound once again roared out from Xiao Yan’s
mouth a moment later. Finally, it turned into a circular-shaped ripple
which spread out in all directions with Xiao Yan at the center. It formed
waves of ripples across the surface of the lake.
Under the waterfall, the strange roaring, which was covered by the loud
splashing of the waterwall, was becoming increasingly sharp and
