Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-442
“Hei, I heard that there is a group of new students in the forest that
hunt the older students instead!”
“Ah? That can’t be right? Which group is strong enough to do so? They
were actually able to defeat those fellows?”
“Ha ha, who else? Of course it’s the strongest group of incoming
“Xiao Yan’s group?”
“They have guts! During these two days, we, the new students, were
bullied by those bastards in all sorts of ways. Now, it’s their turn to
taste what it is like to be robbed and beaten. Very good! It really
relieves my anger!”
“Ha ha, let’s hurry. If we are lucky, we might even be able to meet
Xiao Yan’s group in the forest. As long as we follow behind them, we
need not worry about those older students from the Inner Academy!”
Various different kinds of rumors began to spread throughout the forest.
By this time, the matter regarding Xiao Yan’s group hunting down older
students had almost spread throughout the entire forest. Regardless of
whether it was the older students or the new student groups, they were
all stunned by this shocking news.
Not long after this rumor began to spread, just when these people had
maintained a doubtful attitude, four frighteningly gloomy-faced older
student groups from the Inner Academy were filled with melancholy and
anger as they directly headed to the edge of the forest without hearing
or bothering to look around them. Even though they occasionally met some
new student groups along the way, they did not attack them. They simply
left the forest with dark and solemn faces. The new students may have had
some doubts with regards to their actions but the older student groups
understood it very clearly. According to the rules, if the older student
groups in the forest were to lose any of their ‘Fire Energy’ until
they had less than ten ‘Fire Energy,’ they would have lost the
qualifications to continue staying within the forest to participate in
the Hunting Competition. Moreover, they needed to leave the vicinity
Clearly, these four groups were leaving this place, which caused them
great embarrassment, in an extremely unwilling manner because the number
of their ‘Fire Energy’ had fallen below ten.
Numerous gazes within the forest sent off the four groups. Immediately,
the place became somewhat quieter. It was only a long while later that
the doubt still present in some of the gazes finally and completely
disappeared. Replacing it was a seriousness and faint anger.
The occurrence of new students robbing the older students instead had
basically never happened during these past few years. As the older
student groups within the Inner Academy, the current sudden occurrence of
such an event happening within this forest was like a slap being
ruthlessly thrown onto the faces by the younger classmen. Moreover, this
slap was actually loud and clear.
“New students who are acting in an uppity manner? They will pay the
price because of their own arrogance…” The gazes of all the older
students withdrew from the edge of the forest as they spoke viciously.
Immediately, one human figure after another suddenly flashed out from
within the forest. Some groups, who thought highly of themselves, began
to be unable to endure it any longer as they took the initiative to begin
searching for Xiao Yan’s group. Each year, the new students were
suppressed by the older students. This was basically a tradition at this
point. Therefore, they really did not want any new students to break this
cycle that they had once undergone. Hence, they currently needed to
completely kill off the arrogance of that group of new students!
Due to this, the few groups of older students began to rifle through the
entire forest. However, after searching for an entire day, they did not
find the slightest traces of Xiao Yan’s group. Just as they thought
that Xiao Yan’s five men group had begun fleeing far away out of fear,
this arrogant new student group once again appeared against everyone’s
In an empty clearing within the forest, withered, yellow leaves were
spread all over the ground, forming a thick layer that looked like a
At this moment, there were five new students, whose faces were covered
with dirt and dust on this open ground. They had their backs facing each
other as they formed a small circle. Their gazes were filled with anger
as they eyed the five young men who had surrounded them. Each of these
five young men wore a tower-shaped badge on their chest.
“Hand over the ‘Fire Energy’ and you will avoid a ruthless beating,
what do you say?” A young man, who was clearly an older student within
the Inner Academy, lifted his eyes. His hair was gathered at his
shoulders. At one glance, he had a feminine aura. At this moment, this
long-haired young man was eyeing the five new students putting up a
resistance as he said with a faint smile.
“Hand over my ass. If you want, you can directly come and snatch it. I,
your father, will go all out and bite you once even if I have to endure a
hard beating.” The five new students, who were surrounded, had a tough
character and plenty of attitude. They carelessly wiped the traces of
blood from the corner of their mouths and one of them immediately spat
out blood as he cursed furiously.

himself as the other party’s father

“Ke ke, what a hard bone.” The long-haired young man clapped his
hands and laughed softly, “Alright. Since you all won’t cooperate, we
can only knock you down first and take it for ourselves.”
“Bah! What is there to be arrogant about? Don’t think that you can
walk horizontally without fear just because you are older students! When
you all meet Senior Xiao Yan and the others, you can only obediently hand
over your ‘Fire Energy.’ Ha ha, who says that us new students don’t
have the ability to resist?” A new student laughed out loud. The
laughter contained a ridicule that was difficult to hide.
“Xiao Yan?” The eyebrows of the long-haired young man jumped a little
when he heard this name. The smile on his face gradually paled as he
coldly laughed, “It seems that all of you have placed your hopes on
them. Unfortunately, that group has disappeared during these past two
days. Who knows where they have gone to hide themselves? The next time
that they appear, their ending will not be much better than yours. Hence,
stop having such daydreams. Obediently hand over your ‘Fire Energy’
and you can avoid a harsh beating.”
Once he said that, the long-haired young man waved his hand. His four
companions, who had surrounded the new students, slowly took a step
forward. Powerful Dou Qi rose from within their bodies. As the Dou Qi
flowed, many of the the withered yellow leaves began to flutter around.
“Ke ke, this senior, are you referring to us?” Just as that group of
older students was preparing to defeat the audacious group in one go, a
soft laughter suddenly sounded out, ringing throughout the empty clearing.
The sudden voice that had sounded caused the flowing Dou Qi in this place
to become a little dull. All gazes suddenly followed the direction where
the voice had come from, where it was thrown over. Finally, they stopped
on a tree branch outside the open area. At that spot, three males and two
females had unknowingly appeared. They were smiling as they stood there.
The black-robed young man leading them had a large, black ruler strapped
to his back, revealing their identities.
“Senior Xiao Yan!”
The group of new students, who were surrounded, paused their stunned
gazes on the black-robed young man before a wild joy immediately swarmed
onto their faces. An excited voice was involuntarily shouted out. In this
forest, where the new students could only be bullied, Xiao Yan’s group
was undoubtedly the life-saving last straw within the hearts of all the
new students. This was because this was the only group who had
successfully defeated the older students.
“You are Xiao Yan? In that case, you must be that group who is running
around hunting down the older students for their ‘Fire Energy,’
right?” When he heard the young man’s shout, the expression of that
long-haired youth changed slightly. His gaze stared intently at Xiao
Yan’s five man group as he laughed coldly.
“Very good, it is really unexpected that you all actually have the guts
to appear.” Seeing Xiao Yan nodding his head, that long-haired young
man slowly took a step forward. Powerful Dou Qi surged out from within
his body. With a wave of his hand, four human figures flashed over from
behind him. They immediately landed around this long-haired young man in
an orderly manner. It may appear that they were randomly standing around,
but it was quite ingenious. This formation would allow them to react to
any attack from any direction at anytime.
“Hand over the ‘Fire Energy’? Or shall we take it by ourselves?”
When the five man formation was formed, the long-haired youth’s
confidence greatly soared. He lifted his head and slowly spoke to Xiao
“These words… can you let me say them?” Xiao Yan laughed softly. He
eyed the dark and solemn expression that was instantly formed on the
long-haired young man’s face and a coldness flashed across his dark
eyes. His body shook a little and appeared at a spot two meters in front
of the long-haired young man in a lightning-like manner. He tightened his
fist and a green-colored Dou Qi swiftly surfaced. Finally, it solidified
into a green-colored layer with spikes protruding from his fist.
Following its appearance, the strength on Xiao Yan’s fist suddenly
The long-haired young man laughed as he coldly eyed Xiao Yan, who was
attacking by himself. Before he even spoke, his four other companions
flashed out at the same time. The short few steps that distanced them was
instantly covered, and four pairs of fists and legs, each carrying a low
sonic boom from cutting through the air, violently smashed toward Xiao
Yan at the same time. They wanted to rely on their great cooperation and
teamwork, using four people’s strength to injure Xiao Yan with one blow!
Four older students, who were not much weaker than Xiao Yan, attacked at
the same time. That force was something that even Xiao Yan would have
difficulty receiving directly. However, he simply ignored the attack of
these four people. His eyes stared intently at that long-haired young man
behind the shadows of the fists. The green-colored Dou Qi became
increasingly concentrated on his fist.
Just as the fists and legs, containing ferocious force, were about to
reach Xiao Yan’s body, the sharp sound of rushing wind suddenly tore
through the air. Human figures flashed past like light. Immediately,
everyone was dazzled for a moment, only to see four black shadows
descending from the sky like a metal tower and landed exactly around Xiao
Yan. An attack which had already been brewed to perfection was suddenly
emitted. In an instant, under repeated low explosive sounds, they heavily
collided with the four older students. Energy ripples spread out from the
points of collision. The thick, withered carpet of leaves on the ground
took flight with a ‘shua’ sound, turning the leaves into a rain that
fluttered through the air.
The fists and legs of the four older students were blocked by Xun Er, Bai
Shan, Wu Hao, and Hu Jia, who had suddenly appeared. The powerful force
caused the former’s bodies to tremble slightly. An instant later, they
finally could no longer withstand the powerful force that was swiftly
being transmitted over. Their faces turned red. Mouthfuls of fresh blood
were spat out wildly while their bodies shot backward like falling leaves
in the autumn wind. Finally they sat down on a pile of withered leaves.
Their faces were filled with shock.
The moment when the bodies of the four older students fell back, a black
shadow immediately followed up. With a flash, he appeared like a ghost in
front of the long-haired young man, whose expression had changed
drastically. He smiled at the latter as his hand shook. The fist, that
was wrapped in a layer of green energy that contained spikes, smashed
through defense of his crossed arms that the latter had placed in front
of his head and heavily smashed into his shoulders. A force immediately
exploded out and one could hear a clear ‘crack’ sound. The
long-haired young man’s body fell and shot back. His feet dragged
against the ground, leaving a long scar. Finally, he collided with a tree
trunk. A muffled sound appeared and fresh blood flowed out from the
corner of his mouth. The long-haired young man rubbed away the blood
trace with his hand and he lowered his pale-white face, which was filled
with disbelief. Didn’t people say that this group of new students had
strong individual strength but the coordination between them was
extremely appalling? Why was it that… in just two short days, the
cooperation that they displayed was already strong to such an extent?
The five new students, who stood in the middle of the empty ground, were
stunned as they saw that the victor among the two groups was decided in a
mere exchange. They then looked at the black-robed young man, who was
twisting his fist while standing tall as well as the four others beside
him. It was a long while later before they inhaled a deep breath of cool
air. After these five people formed a group, their combat strength had
actually become this strong.
