Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-438
The leaves in the quiet, dense forest suddenly moved a little. A few
human figures flashed out from the tree branches. Their bodies were like
agile monkeys as they pressed against the tree trunks, and shot forward
once again. After a few leaps like this, they swiftly disappeared from
the edge of the branches.
“Stop!” As the human figure flashed, the human figure leading the
group suddenly raised his hand vertically. The four human shadows behind
him immediately landed on the branches in an extremely agile manner.
After which, they turned their doubtful gazes towards the black-robed
“What is it?” Hu Jia’s gaze swept around in all directions, but did
not discover any movement. She could not help but whisper in a somewhat
“There is someone coming. Let’s hide first.” Xiao Yan’s gaze
stared intently to his left. His extraordinary Spiritual Perception had
gifted him with the outstanding ability to survive in the jungles. He was
able to sense movement that others were not able to sense, one step ahead
of them. On this point, it was basically very difficult for him to be
involuntarily attacked in this hunting competition.
With the exception of Xun Er, Hu Jia and the others were a little stunned
when they heard Xiao Yan’s words. They did not sense any presences
approaching. However, when they eyed Xiao Yan’s expression and recalled
his current status as the group leader, the three of them could only nod
slightly. Immediately, the five human figures flashed simultaneously and
swiftly fled into a dense thicket below.
Around five minutes after Xiao Yan and the others had hidden themselves,
there was suddenly a slight sound of rushing wind being transmitted from
the dense forest not far away. Immediately, five figures gradually
appeared and stopped in the air, a spot not far away from where Xiao Yan
and the others were hiding. Their sharp gazes slowly swept across this
stretch of quiet thicket.
The gazes of Xiao Yan and the four others passed through the gaps of the
thicket and stared intently at the five older students of the Inner
Academy, who stood not far from them. Judging from the Qis that were
seeping out from their bodies, it appeared that these people were
actually all around the one star Da Dou Shi level or so.
The strength of these people may not be weak but when compared to Xiao
Yan’s five man group, there was still some gap between them. Adding to
this, Xiao Yan and the others were not novices who failed in terms of
mentality. Therefore, they would naturally not make any unnecessary
coughing or other noises at this moment. Therefore, the five older
students above them could only helplessly leave after quickly scanning
the area once.
After their group left, Bai Shan’s body moved slightly, wanting to
stand up. However, Xiao Yan’s expression changed slightly as he softly
said: “Don’t move”
“What are you so anxious for? They’ve already left.” Bai Shan was
extremely unhappy with Xiao Yan’s scolding and could not resist biting
back. Although his mouth said this, his body still obeyed and did not
dare to make too large of a movement.
Xiao Yan ignored him. He only turned his gaze towards the position where
the five people had vanished. Upon seeing this action of his, Bai Shan
and the others were startled and could only continue to move along with
The silent atmosphere shrouded the forest in such a manner for around
three to four minutes before the tree branches, which the gazes of Xiao
Yan and the others, suddenly shook. Immediately, a few human figures
landed on them and appeared. From their appearance, it was shockingly the
same group of people who should have left earlier. Immediately, Bai
Shan’s expression changed slightly and he felt a little bitter.
“There is no one. Liu Mu, you really are paranoid. We cannot exhaust
our time in this manner.” The people on the tree branches shook their
heads when they saw that there was still no movement. They then turned
their bodies to face the skinny, green-clothed, young man and said.
The young man, who was called Liu Mu, helplessly nodded. He hesitatingly
said: “I practice Wood affinity Dou Qi, therefore my senses are much
sharper than ordinary people in this forest. Earlier… perhaps it is
really was me sensing wrong. Let’s go.” Even though he said this, he
was still a little uncertain. He could only wave over that feeling. After
which, he turned around and rushed towards another part of the dense
forest. Four other human figures followed closely behind him.
“The people in this Inner Academy are indeed not people of ordinary
caliber…” Xiao Yan eyed the group, which was becoming distant. Only
then did he slowly stand up from the bushes and let out a sigh. If it was
not because of his use of Spiritual Perception to survey their
surroundings, he might really be caught by those fellows who appeared to
have left but were actually hiding in the corner, peeping back.
Hu Jia and the others also crawled out from the bushes and stood up.
Their gazes shifted from the spot where that group of people earlier had
left from and turned towards Xiao Yan. The gazes of Hu Jia, Wu Hao, and
even Bai Shan more or less had a trace of being convinced. At the very
least, when they had not discovered the other party’s trace, Xiao Yan
had the ability to sense it first and brought them to avoid the original
situation, where they would get caught. Just on this point, Xiao Yan was
successful in being this group leader.
“Let’s go. It is just that instead of scurrying around wildly like we
had been before, we no longer know what position we are in right now, so
if we just randomly charge around…” Xiao Yan frowned a little as he
“I feel that… should we think of ways to obtain some information
regarding this forest? The exact number of older students who are
participating in this hunting competition and their level of strength?
Otherwise, if we just go rampaging around all the way, we will end up
falling into a situation of being surrounded due to the lack of
information about our opponents. Perhaps we might be able to obtain
victory when we face one group of older students. However, if we end up
attracting the other groups of older students during the fight, I think
that we are unlikely to be able to defeat all of them, right? For some
unknown reason, these students of the Inner Academy seem to be very
experienced in fighting…” Xun Er hesitated a little before suddenly
opening her mouth to speak.
Xiao Yan and the others were startled when they heard this. They
immediately mused for a while and nodded. What Xun Er said was true. In
this place where they were unfamiliar with the terrain and people, they
would sooner or later meet some older students who were stronger than
themselves if they were to randomly run everywhere and their speed would
“In this place, the people who have the information we seek seems to be
only those Inner Academy’s students, right? Don’t tell me that we
should get the information from their hands?” Bai Shan knit his
eyebrows together and said.
Xiao Yan’s hand fondled his chin. A long while later, he voiced his
thoughts: “Let’s walk for a bit and take a look around. If there is a
chance for us to act, we can perhaps choose a group of older students to
strike. We are not like those ordinary groups. As long as we are more
careful and don’t attract the other groups of older students over. I
think that we should be able to eat one of them.”
“Uh?” The expressions on Hu Jia and the others faces were stunned
when they heard Xiao Yan’s words. Other new students were thinking of
methods to avoid the groups of seniors, however, Xiao Yan was actually
now trying to attack an older students’ group?
“This is too risky.” Bai Shan shook his head in disagreement.
“Everyone, sharpening the axe will not interfere with chopping the
wood. If we were to stroll in this vast forest by ourselves, how long
would it take? Moreover, you should also have seen just how much those
older students seem to covet this so called ‘Fire Energy’. I think
that this should be an extremely important aspect in the Inner Academy.
Since they are able to snatch our ‘Fire Energy’, why can’t we
snatch theirs? In order for us not to regret our decisions in the future,
we would not lose out by taking such risks.” Xiao Yan waved the black
crystal sheet in his hand and said smilingly.
A glint flashed across Hu Jia’s and Wu Hao’s eyes as they felt some
motivation. They mused for a while before the two of them nodded their
heads heavily: “We can try.”
Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he saw that the two of them did not
disagree. He turned his head, threw his gaze towards Bai Shan, asked with
a smiled: “What about you?”
Bai Shan’s expression repeatedly changed in front of the gazes of Xiao
Yan and the three others. It was a long while later before he clenched
his teeth hard and said: “Alright. Let’s try. However, I will say
this beforehand. If any accidents are to happen, you, the group leader,
will be held responsible for dealing with it.”
Xiao Yan smilingly nodded. He simply acted as though he had not heard the
last sentence as he waved his hand and said: “Since everyone shares the
same opinion, let’s go. Instead of being robbed by others, why don’t
we go and snatch what belongs to them?”
Once he said this, Xiao Yan took the lead to move his body, turning into
a black shadow that flashed into the dense thicket. Xun Er and the others
followed closely behind.
After deciding to accept the strategy, Xiao Yan and the others began to
place their attention on those groups of older students that they
occasionally found. Nearly two hours later, they had met a total of three
groups but they could not help but give up the opportunity to attack as
the three groups were fighting far too close to one another.
Xiao Yan and the other four people once again watched a group of older
students flash past them, above their heads, from within the dense
bushes. They helplessly shook their heads. Xiao Yan could sense that
there was another group, which had stopped around one hundred meters
north of their location. The fighting noise here would definitely be
transmitted over. Hence, for their own safety, they could only continue
to give up this opportunity to attack.
Xiao Yan gestured to the few people behind him. Therefore, the four of
them, whose Dou Qi had already began to circulate, could only once again
Not long after that group of older students passed them, Xiao Yan was
about to stand up and lead them away when his footsteps paused. He tilted
his head and threw his gaze towards the north. He sensed that the group
there had suddenly stopped.
“Go.” Xiao Yan hesitated for a moment. He waved his hand and
immediately lead the four others as they moved like moles, passing
through the dense thicket and quickly headed north.
After around five minutes, the bodies of Xiao Yan and the others suddenly
paused. Their gazes passed through the gaps between the dense leaves, and
eyed the empty ground outside. At this moment, there were ten human
figures interweaving and flashing. Every once in awhile, a young person
who would vomit blood and faint. This pattern continued for two or three
minutes before the five young people, who were clearly new students, were
completely defeated. Their group was then surrounded in the middle of the
empty ground. Around them were five older students who were standing
around them lazily. Faint Dou Qi extended and appeared on their fists.
Xun Er, Hu Jia, and the other two turned their gazes towards Xiao Yan
after watching the scene on the empty ground. Clearly, they were waiting
for his decision.
Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed. His Spiritual Perception was spread out to
its limits at this moment. His eyes slowly opened as he nodded slightly.
“Tsk tsk, we are really lucky today, having already met two groups of
new students. Ha ha, our acquisition is not bad.” A blue-clothed young
man on the open ground eyed his card having gained 3 more ‘Fire
Energy’. He could not help but lick his lips as he said this with a
“Hey juniors, thank you very much. If you are dissatisfied, you can
come to the Inner Academy to look for us in the future. We await your
challenge any time. Of course, the precondition is that you must have
sufficient ‘Fire Energy’.” The blue-clothed young man waved the
Crystal Card in his hand at the green-faced new students as he gloatingly
“Let’s go and look for the next target.” Once he said these words,
the blue-clothed young man waved his hand. His four companions turned
around and immediately rushed off in another direction.
“There is no need to look. We are here.”
Just as the blue-clothed young man’s five man group was about to turn
around, a faint laughter suddenly sounded from the tree branches. The
former hurriedly lifted their heads only to see that there were three men
and two women who had appeared on the surrounding tree branches at an
unknown time and had already surrounded them.
The blue-clothed young man’s group was surprised by the five new
students who has just appeared. They could not really recover. Weren’t
all the new students supposed to be fleeing like some mice? Why did these
few fellows actually dare to openly appear in front of them?
“Oh, what beautiful girls. Everyone, be a little gentler when you
attack later. Otherwise, if we are to leave a bad impression, there would
no longer be a chance in the future.” A moment later, the blue-clothed
young man’s five man group finally recovered. Their gazes swept across
the few people on the branches before their gazes brightened greatly as
they stopped on the two young ladies. Immediately, their teasing laughter
“What about those three fellows?” One of his companion asked
The blue-robed young man smiled when he heard this. A fierce aura flashed
across their eyes as they spread their hands and said helplessly:
“Since these new students are so arrogant, we as their seniors, should
naturally properly teach them how they should survive in the Inner
Academy, right? Therefore, let them see some blood first. This kind of
method is the most effective one in letting them understand just what
kind of attitudes they should maintain within the Inner Academy.”

“Haha.” When they heard his words, the four older students by his
side laughed. They immediately raised their heads, and their gazes were
filled with ill-intent as they stared at the three young men on the tree
“Their strength is barely around that of a two star Da Dou Shi. Each of
us can take care of one. Do not drag it out. Finish the battles quickly.
Remember, we cannot let any of them flee!” Xiao Yan eyed the five older
students on the empty ground below indifferently. He turned his head to
look as Xun Er, Bai Shan, Wu Hao, and Hu Jia as he reminded.
“Yes.” The four of them nodded slightly. They exchanged glances with
one another as their bodies shook slightly. Powerful Dou Qi suddenly
surged out of their bodies. They immediately moved and appeared on the
empty ground as fast as lightning!
At the moment Xun Er’s powerful Dou Qi and the others’ Dou Qi surged
out, the expressions of the blue clothed man’s group of five finally
changed drastically. Looking just at these Qis of theirs, these five new
students were actually all much stronger than them!
“We have kicked an iron plate this time! Why are these new students so
strong?” A thought that was anything but assuring swiftly flashed
across the blue-clothed young man’s heart. He waved his hand. However,
before he could even utter the words to shout at his companions to
hurriedly retreat, a black shadow suddenly and strangely appeared in
front of him. The eyes of the former shrunk. His fist, which contained
powerful Dou Qi, did not hesitate even a little as it was ferociously
swung at the black shadow’s head.
At the instant that the blue-clothed young man threw his punch, the black
shadow moved. A sharp force actually caused the air to emit a muffled
sonic boom as a punch came in a lightning-like manner. Regardless of
speed or strength, it far surpassed the attack of the blue-clothed young
“This time around, our boat is about to sink in the Gutters.” A
horrorstruck feeling surfaced within the blue-clothed young man’s
heart, as he sensed the strength and speed in which the black shadow
unleashed that punch. He lifted his gaze and saw a delicate and handsome
face that carried some coldness along with a pair of dark, ink-black eyes.
TL: boat is about to sink in the Gutters – meaning something totally
unexpected or should not happen happened.
