Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-445
Six human figures tore through the hinderance of the air in a
lightning-like manner in the forest clearing. In an instant, they
collided in the center and Dou Qi surged out like an erupting volcano,
permeating through the air. As the Dou Qi collided, they formed a strong
Dou Qi wind that shattered all the withered leaves on the ground!
Xiao Yan’s opponent was the young man called Su Xiao. His physique was
perhaps the most delicate and weakest among the three group leaders.
However, from the discussion earlier, Xiao Yan knew that this fellow
should be a little stronger than the other two people. Otherwise, with
the haughtiness that Leng Bai and Xiu Yan displayed, they would not pay
much attention to his words. However, the two of them did not disagree
with the various suggestions of Su Xiao just now. It was like Su Xiao was
The large Heavy Xuan Ruler cut through the air as it carried a cluster of
black shadows and immense crushing winds like a large mountain pressing
down as it smashed heavily down toward Su Xiao, who had appeared in front
The enormous ruler was merely half a foot from Su Xiao’s head when the
latter’s body gently drifted one step back like a leaf being lifted by
a gentle breeze. The enormous ruler merely carried its force past Su
Xiao’s body by about half an inch. The wind that was contained in it
blew Su Xiao’s hair until all of it was lifted.
“Very great strength.” Su Xiao smiled and said after narrowly
avoiding the attack from Xiao Yan’s heavy ruler. His feet immediately
pressed against the ground, and his body appeared as though it was
weightless as he suddenly charged forward. He deceivingly approached
close to Xiao Yan in an instant, and two dark daggers that were around
two inches long shot into Su Xiao’s hands from his sleeves.
Immediately, his hands danced like a windmill as the dark daggers quietly
carried numerous afterimages and a faint rotating wind around their tips.
They stabbed in a wild, dazzling manner directly at Xiao Yan’s body.
Su Xiao’s attack where he waved his two daggers had a speed that was
quite shocking. In terms of attacking speed, Xiao Yan admitted that he
would not be able to achieve such speeds. He may be unable to achieve
such speed, but it was not too difficult to defend against. The size of
the Heavy Xuan Ruler may be big and heavy, but it similarly had an
advantage that was difficult to conceal.
When the heavy ruler was pulled back, it would appear in front of Xiao
Yan like a shield. All of those nearly endless dagger attacks of Su Xiao
landed on the ruler’s blade. One could only hear continuous ‘clang’
sounds and see sparks flying in all directions. In just a couple of
breaths’ time, Su Xiao had waved his dagger nearly twenty to thirty
times in a somewhat crazed and wild manner. However, these swift and
violent lightning-like dagger attacks were completely useless against
Xiao Yan’s impenetrable heavy ruler defense!
From the faint rotating wind shrouding Su Xiao, it appeared that the Dou
Qi he practiced belonged to the fast and agile wind affinity. Therefore,
his speed and agility were truly shocking. After seeing that his wave of
violent attacks were unsuccessful, Su Xiao did not withdraw because of
it. Instead, he relied on his drifting, leaf-like agility, and repeatedly
flashed around Xiao Yan. The dagger on his hand would occasionally draw a
cold arc as it shot explosively toward the occasional gaps which Xiao Yan
revealed. In his heart, he clearly knew that the heavy ruler in Xiao
Yan’s hand held great lethality. If he allowed the opponent to pull
apart the gap between them and use it, it would pose an extremely great
threat to him. Hence, he could not afford to give Xiao Yan any
opportunity to use his ruler to its maximum capabilities.
If he wanted to fight, he needed to suppress his opponent until the
latter had no means of retaliating! When he fought with others in the
Inner Academy, Su Xiao relied on his agility and attack speed, which he
was proud of, to suppress his challengers until the latter was at a huge
disadvantage before the latter could completely display their strength!
“The strength of a six star Da Dou Shi… The students in the Inner
Academy are indeed very strong!” Xiao Yan’s body occasionally moved
slightly. The heavy ruler in his hand was like a shield, repeatedly
moving and flashing about all around his body. His peripheral vision
repeatedly swept around him. Although Su Xiao’s attack speed and
agility was somewhat beyond his expectations, for Xiao Yan who had
Spiritual Perception to act as his eyes, he would be able to absorb
everything within his field of vision almost instantly, regardless of
when the opponent attacked. After which, he would adopt defensive and
counter-attack measures. Therefore, it may appear that Su Xiao was
violently attacking in the battleground, but he did not pose even the
slightest bit of a threat to Xiao Yan.
On the other hand, Xiao Yan had already roughly grasped Su Xiao’s
strength during their contact earlier. He could not help but be amazed in
his heart. Su Xiao’s age was perhaps merely around twenty-five years.
Although this kind of training speed did still have some gap when
compared with himself, it could be said that it was quite remarkable to
possess this kind of strength at that age. Back then, when Xiao Yan was
in the Jia Ma Empire, the strongest Da Dou Shis he had met, with the
exception of Nalan Yanran, were mostly people who had stepped into their
middle-aged years. Moreover, Xiao Yan’s father, Xiao Zhan, was included
among them. From this, it was evident that with Su Xiao’s achievements,
he was likely called a genius regardless of where he was placed in the
Jia Ma Empire. However, a genius of this class was not considered to be
rare within the Inner Academy.
“It is indeed where the core of the Jia Nan Academy lies. This Inner
Academy is really causing my curiosity to grow…” Xiao Yan muttered in
his heart. He waved his hand and the heavy ruler abruptly swung toward
the back. Finally, it deflected aside two daggers which had pierced over
in a lightning-like manner.
At this moment when a fierce battle had begun where Xiao Yan was at, the
other places had also suddenly entered into battles that would cause
people’s heated blood to boil. In an instant, roaring sounds, the sound
of swords and knives colliding, and the explosion of Dou Qi repeatedly
appeared in the originally quiet and empty forest. It was like a
firecracker, appearing extremely lively.
Faced with Leng Bai, whose strength was similar to his own, Bai Shan did
not dare to slight the former by even a little. The long, silver-colored
lance in his hands was like a giant lightning python. As it swung
abruptly and violently, lightning cut through the air and carried a
‘chi chi’ sound, which was extremely frightening.
That Leng Bai was quite surprised by the strength which Bai Shan
displayed. His expression gradually became serious. His hand held an
extremely large knife with a cold glint. The cold aura was sharp as he
hacked down and pulled it up. Occasionally, when the blade cut past Bai
Shan’s clothes, it would cause some red dots to rise up on his skin.
Compared to Xiao Yan’s and Bai Shan’s fights, Wu Hao’s one was the
one which caused people’s heart to be gripped with fear. The young man
called Xiu Yan did not use any weapons. However, during battle, there was
a grayish-white Dou Qi shrouding his entire body. Under the cover of this
Dou Qi, his originally grayish-white skin had turned into something like
a mountain rock, giving people an extremely eye-piercing view of rigid
strength. As he waved both his enormous fists, they were like rocks
flying past. If it was a timid person, it was likely that he would not
dare to recklessly fight head on with Xiu Yan.
Xiu Yan’s attack completely belonged to the pure force type, which
completely lacked any tricks. If it was another person fighting with him,
the opponent might perhaps adopt an evasive fighting style to combat him.
Wu Hao, however, was different. Seeing the heavy blood-colored sword that
he used, which was similar to Xiao Yan’s heavy ruler, his strength was
also terrifying. This was indeed the case. When faced with Xiu Yan’s
hard attacks, he did not even take half a step back. Blood-colored Dou Qi
unceasingly surged out from within his body. He immediately waved his
heavy fists, carrying a soft and low explosive sound, as he repeatedly
caused head-on collisions with Xiu Yan.

This stance of his where he did not evade also caused Xiu Yan to feel
more comfortable the more they fought. When he fought with people within
the Inner Academy, there was seldom anyone who would fight with him in
this manner. Immediately, he could not resist the pleasant feeling within
his heart as he faced the sky and laughed loudly. He might have been
laughing but the whirling smashes of his fist had not weakened even a
little because of this. Instead, the attacks had become increasingly
sharp. The ‘hu hu’ sound of the wind from his fists shook people
until their eardrums ached. Within half a meter radius of him, any
drifting withered leaves that came into contact with his fist would be
shattered into a pile of powder.
On the open empty grounds, intense energy explosions were repeatedly
emitting from the three battlegrounds. Six human figures were like glue
as they adhered to one another. Their underlying strength was like
blades. When they were occasionally revealed, they would cut the trees
surrounding them into two, right down the middle!
Outside these three battles, the most lively area naturally belonged to
the place where the group of new students were fighting with those twelve
older students. Multi-colored Dou Qis stained the battlefield until it
appeared very colorful and extremely gorgeous.
In this chaotic battle circle, the new students might have greater
numbers but they were disadvantaged in that they did not have good
cooperation or teamwork. On the other hand, the twelve older students in
the Inner Academy not only had individual strength that far surpassed the
new students, but also a degree of cooperation that was far from what the
new students could hope to compare with. Hence, after this battle had
begun, there would occasionally be new students who were sent flying from
this battle circle. However, the disadvantage of the new students began
to gradually turn around with the participation of Xun Er and Hu Jia.
This was because with a cornerstone, the new students’ attacks
gradually became orderly. Finally, Xun Er and Hu Jia each brought some
new students as they cut the metal drum defence of the twelve older
students like two sharp knives, spreading apart the twelve men group
which was hugged close together and gradually swallowed them up.
It must be said that the effect Xun Er and Hu Jia had achieved was
extremely important. After the other party’s defensive circle was torn
apart, the older students finally began to panic. In merely seven to
eight minutes, there were two to three older students who were heavily
knocked out of the battle circle after their bodies received more than
ten fists and legs at the same time. After which, they threw up blood and
The entire battlefield had gradually turned white-hot at this moment. The
degree of brutality of the battle also caused people to be somewhat
stunned. Other than not having caused any deaths, there were quite a
number of people, who due to their reddened eyes, had beaten their
opponents until the latter was seriously wounded. Among them were both
new students and older students.
In summary, the ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition’ this year would
likely shake the entire Inner Academy. This was because this was the
first time in the last ten years where the new students participating in
the Hunting Competition had pressured the older students to such an
As the fight in the battleground entered this white-hot phase, a change
finally began to occur in Xiao Yan’s battleground.
After exchanging blows for over ten minutes, Xiao Yan could be considered
to have completely grasped Su Xiao’s attack patterns. Following this,
it was time for the latter’s wild storm-like attacks to cease.
Xiao Yan’s hand held the heavy ruler tightly. He let out a low cry as
his body began to swiftly spin like a gyro. The enormous black and dark
shadow carried a frightening wind that covered the region within a two
meter radius from his body.
“Clang!” Xiao Yan’s sudden change from defense was also beyond Su
Xiao’s expectations. He swiftly pulled his body back as his hand
pressed a dagger into the ruler’s body in an extremely skillful manner,
using the force to push his body into the air.
Seeing Su Xiao leap back, the corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth lifted into a
cold smile. The heavy ruler in his hand was abruptly inserted into the
ground and his hands quickly formed some seals. An instant later, his
head tilted back a little, while his mouth formed a convex shaped and
instantly opened in a sudden manner. Immediately, a tiger’s roar that
contained a strange sound wave was emitted from Xiao Yan’s mouth.
The roar had just come out from Xiao Yan’s mouth when Su Xiao, who was
facing him on the opposite side, suddenly felt an explosive, thunder-like
rumbling within his mind. In an instant, Su Xiao’s mind sank to a giddy
and faint state.
‘Lion Tiger Gold Shattering Roar’! This was the sonic Dou Technique
which Xiao Yan had practiced just before his trip to enter the Inner
Academy. Now that he had displayed it for the first time, he obtained an
effect that caused him to rejoice!
Although Su Xiao’s giddiness last for merely an instant, this instant
would determine the victor in the battle between the strong!
