Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-434
The gentle breeze blew over the endless sea of trees causing the branches
to sway. The sea of trees were scattered with bursts of green-colored
waves that spread out towards the edge of one’s sight.
Within the sea of trees, there would occasionally be a silver, river-like
waterfall present as ornaments. It carried a loud bang as well as a fog
rose up and permeated the sky. Under the waterfall, the fog was spread
over the surface of the lake, appearing hazy as though one was in the
territory of the immortals.
There, a black-robed young man was seated cross-legged on a huge rock on
the edge of the lake. His hands formed the training seal and the air
around his body fluctuated slightly. Threads of faint energy surfaced and
unceasingly poured into the young man’s body.
The clean and transparent lake, where one could see the bottom, contained
the rumbling sound of the waterfall, and a dense fog filled the air. It
was an artistic scene formed from its special environment. Under this
environment, the energy, which swarmed out from the air surrounding the
black-robed young man, was also becoming increasingly dense. The young
man did not refuse the energy that came to him. His body was like a black
hole which could not be filled, swallowing all that came near him and
After training for an hour, the energy surrounding Xiao Yan finally began
to gradually become faint. His eyelashes moved a little before he slowly
opened his eyes. A clear glint shone in his dark, black eyes and
“This place is not a bad place to use for training. In just two short
days, the Dou Qi in my body has been enhanced by quite a lot. According
to this training speed, I might be able to advance to a seven star Da Dou
Shi if I was to train here for two months.” Xiao Yan undid the seal
formed by his hand and sensed the surging and flowing Dou Qi in his body
as he whispered in a somewhat surprised voice.
“Unfortunately, after two days of tough training, I still have not
learned the trick to the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ despite
having the help of the ‘Icy Spirit Throat Protecting Liquid’.
Although I am now able to barely emit a sound wave, its attacking
strength is too weak. It basically cannot be used to face an opponent.”
Xiao Yan slowly stood up, flipped his hand, and placed it on the huge
rock. He eyed the calm surface of the lake and sighed with a bitter smile.
After sighing gently, Xiao Yan shook his head. He threw aside the
helplessness in his heart as his gaze stopped on the calm surface of the
lake, where no ripples were formed. A long while later, he slowly closed
his eyes and raised his head slightly. His Spiritual Perception broke out
of his body and quietly spread out. Finally, it covered the entire
surface of the lake.
Being wrapped by the Spiritual Perception, the quiet atmosphere that the
small lake carried was instantly amplified by many dozens of times. Under
the influence of this quiet atmosphere, Xiao Yan’s originally somewhat
impetuous heart also gradually recovered its calmness.
The black-robed young man placed his hands behind him on the huge rock as
he stood up. His body was as straight as a pen, much like a long spear
releasing a sharp cold aura, its vigor threatening others.
Xiao Yan did not know how long he stood like this. That roaring sound of
the waterfall crashing downwards suddenly gradually became more faint in
his ears. At this moment, the entire world in Xiao Yan’s ears seemed to
have descended into a somewhat short and bizarre temporary silence.
The current him appeared to have borrowed the silent atmosphere of the
lake’s surface to unknowingly enter a mysterious state.
Xiao Yan was in a condition where everything was silent. At this moment,
one strange roar after another swiftly flashed through his mind
involuntarily. These roars were emitted by Xiao Yan during his training
of the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ over the past two days.
Under normal circumstances, he would not have realized the weirdness in
his roar. However, during the recollection in his mind at that moment, he
was like a machine that was extremely precise and accurate, identifying
the tiny soundwaves from those roars.
Countless number of roars sounded at the same time. One by one, the
disagreement between each wierd sound wave was identified. After which,
it was excluded. The roar, which was originally in disarray, began to
faintly have the tendency of being synchronized. The quantity of roars
also began to be reduced from the countless number, no… it could not be
said to have been reduced. Instead, they had begun to merge together
until they had become synchronized, turning into one single sound.
The disarray in the roaring within his mind had become less and less
under Xiao Yan’s nearly accustomed manner of identifying and
eliminating. It also became increasingly louder and more clear.
Under this strange condition, Xiao Yan did not have any concept of time.
The only thing he could do in this kind of perplexing condition was to
rely on his instinct to analyze the fluctuations of these roaring sounds
until it achieved its final perfect form.
Xiao Yan did not know how many hours the never-ending analysis continued
for. However, he was slow to exit from that condition. This was because
after the countless number of roaring perfectly merged into a single
sound, there was no longer any progress. Although Xiao Yan also knew that
the roaring sound at this moment could already be considered to have
reached the initial stage of the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’,
he kept having the feeling that the roar seemed to be missing something…
What is it missing? The thought in Xiao Yan’s mind circulated in a
lightning like manner. However, he ultimately had difficulty searching
for the thing he needed.
Xiao Yan’s bitter pondering continued for an unknowingly long period of
time. However, the instant before Xiao Yan had a premonition that this
mysterious condition was about to disappear, a shocking roar, that shook
the entire mountain forest, suddenly sounded from the mountain range in
the outside world. The tiger roar followed the sea of trees and began to
spread. Finally, it came mightily to the lake. The suppression that was
contained in the tiger roar caused some wild beasts around the lake to
completely become paralyzed.
The clear and loud tiger roar was not isolated from that condition Xiao
Yan was in. Therefore, that roar, which contain the might of the tiger,
was transmitted directly into Xiao Yan’s ears.
As the tiger roar entered his ears, the roaring sound in Xiao Yan’s
mind, that had just undergone countless number of analysis in order to
merge into one, suddenly fluctuated. At this moment, Xiao Yan heart
suddenly brightened. What his own roar was lacking was this kind of true
tiger’s might. Compared with a true tiger’s roar, his own roar merely
had the shape!
Within that incomparably clear mind of his, the tiger roar, which had
entered his ear earlier, was actually put together and formed a winding
substance-like silver-colored wave with extreme curvature. Under Xiao
Yan’s control, this thread of waves began to merge with the most
perfect roar of his, which he had analyzed earlier.
The two sound waves entwined with one another and successfully merged
perfectly without too much resistance.
The moment the two sound waves merged, the mysterious condition Xiao Yan
was in broke apart abruptly. He suddenly opened his eyes and a clear
glint flashed through them explosively. He inhaled a deep breath of air
and the Dou Qi flowed wildly within his body. A thread of dragon aura,
which he had inherited from the ‘Yin-Yang Mysterious Dragon Pill’,
swiftly surged out, and finally directly charged into his throat.
Xiao Yan’s mouth filled slightly. His face was a little flushed as his
hands suddenly formed a seal. His mouth widened. At that moment, a
thunderclap-like loud tiger roar came explosively out of his mouth.
The shapeless sound wave had just exited his mouth when the air in front
of Xiao Yan began to fluctuate intensely. Immediately, the sound wave
began expanding outwards in a lightning-like manner. He could only hear a
loud bang. The calm lake surface appeared to have a bomb placed within
it. A huge wave, that was seventy to eighty feet high, exploded and rose
before falling with a bang. Splashes and fog covered the entire small
valley in a thick mist.
The sound of tiger roar was like angry lightning formed from densely
placed storm clouds. It rolled and swept out with Xiao Yan as the center.
Even the loud sound of the waterfall crashing downwards was covered by
the tiger roar. One could even vaguely hear it five kilometers away.
Anywhere the sound waves passed, hundreds of beasts felt weak. Even the
spirit of some of the strong and powerful Magical Beasts quivered
intensely due to the dragon aura that the tiger roar contained. Some of
the weaker low rank Magical Beasts, who were also in close proximity from
the lake, were actually directly shocked to death by this angry
thunder-like sound wave.
Just one roar from Xiao Yan was actually this terrifying!
The roaring sound slowly became weaker a long while later. The fog that
had permeated the small mountain valley also gradually disappeared. On
the huge rock, the black-robed young man’s face was filled with
excitement and shock as he eyed the messy ground all around him. He
coughed intensely before muttered with great joy: “I have succeeded?
This is the strength of the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’? It is
indeed very strong!”
“You really are a boy blessed by the heavens. To actually be able to
grasp the rhythm of the tiger roar within a short two days. Without
undergoing half a year’s of tough training, normal people would
definitely not be able to achieve this. Although you have borrowed the
strength from entering that quiet condition in order to merge the
tiger’s roar and use it for your own purpose, this speed and
achievement really is extremely amazing.” Yao Lao’s voice suddenly
sounded in Xiao Yan’s heart. When he saw the latter experiencing that
strange situation earlier, even he could not help but feel amazed.
Xiao Yan laughed when he heard this. He did not expect that by stumbling
around, he would actually be able to enter into such a condition.
“However, you should not be too happy. For now, you have merely grasped
the initial stages of the ‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’ and can
barely display thirty to forty percent of its strength. Without some time
to hone it, it will not be possible for you to reach complete mastery.
Moreover, this kind of honing has no shortcuts.” Yao Lao reminded.
“Yes.” Xiao Yan nodded. He twisted his neck and heard the clear
cracking sound between his bones before he let out a long breath.
Originally, he did not think of reaching complete mastery of the ‘Lion
Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’. Being able to achieve his current
achievement had already far exceeded his expectations. Therefore, he
would not be too ambitious.
“It is good that you know this. There is someone coming over, I will
withdraw first…” Yao Lao completely disappeared after this without
the slightest movement.
Xiao Yan’s hand brushed the water from his clothes. His head turned
towards the entrance of the small mountain valley. The tree branches
moved slightly at that spot and a green-colored figure immediately
flashed out in a lithe manner, much like a butterfly. Finally, she
quietly stood on a small rock protruding at the side of the lake. Her
silvery bell-like laughter was like the chanting of the mountain bell,
causing Xiao Yan’s mind, which had not relaxed for two days and two
nights, to quietly ease up.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge, the two days of preparation is already up. Today, we
are entering the Inner Academy. Are you prepared?” The green-clothed
young lady raised her elegant and exquisite pretty face. She said
smilingly with a gentle voice as she eyed the young man, whose body
appeared even taller while standing on a huge rock with his arms behind
Xiao Yan nodded his head with a smile. He patted the large Heavy Xuan
Ruler on his back. His toes pressed against the rock surface and his body
turned into a black shadow that flashed and appeared at the exit of the
mountain valley. After waving his hands at Xun Er, he immediately turned
around and slowly walked out of the small mountain valley.
“Inner Academy huh? I anticipate it greatly… hopefully it won’t
The human figure gradually disappeared within the thicket, leaving behind
a faint voice that slowly resounded in this place.
