Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-447
TL: Title means that another enemy lurks behind as two groups fight in
order to swoop in and capture/take advantage of the losses in both groups
The long lance that paused in front of Leng Bai was not withdrawn. The
corner of Bai Shan’s mouth was lifted in a pleased manner when he eyed
the somewhat stiff face of his opponent. He turned his head slightly as
he lifted his eyes and swept them toward Xiao Yan. When he saw Su Xiao
and the three Inner Academy’s older students who had fallen to the
side, the pride on the corner of his mouth involuntarily gradually
dimmed. Some coldness and envy could not help but flash through his eyes.
The him, who had a haughty character, really did not like the feeling of
being firmly suppressed by someone. At the Outer Academy in the past, he
completely deserved being one of the most outstanding people there,
receiving the respectful gazes of all the students. This type of
treatment was suddenly broken apart after the appearance of Xiao Yan.
This caused his chest, which was not very wide, to not feel even the
slightest positive feeling toward Xiao Yan.
TL: Chest – Think of it as your tolerance to others
Although he had obtained quite a lot of benefits from following Xiao Yan
during this entire journey, his heart firmly thought that this was merely
because each of them held what the other required. Xiao Yan wanted
nothing more than to borrow his strength to obtain the ‘Fire Energy’
from the other Inner Academy students to satisfy his desires. In Bai
Shan’s heart, he had never treated him as a true group leader. It was
merely just using each other for what they required.
“However, the greatest victor in this exchange is still him…” Bai
Shan’s eyes swept over some of the new students. He could see respect
and worship toward Xiao Yan from within their eyes. Clearly, the courage
and resolution Xiao Yan showed to fight against the older student groups
had successfully won their support, which was expressed directly from
“These bastards had completely forgotten that without us, Xiao Yan
could never achieve this by himself!” Bai Shan clenched his teeth
violently. The anger suppressed in his heart for a long time could not
help but come gushing out now. As he became increasingly furious in his
heart, his gaze suddenly become cold. He held the long lance tightly in
his hand and took a step forward. The long lance smashed horizontally and
immediately landed heavily on the chest of Leng Bai, who had already
given up fighting and had no defense. The latter’s face immediately
turned red and a mouthful of fresh blood came spitting out. He hurriedly
took a couple of steps back and finally sat down on the ground. After
which, he abruptly lifted his head while his eyes were filled with fury.
“What are you looking at? Not satisfied?” Bai Shan coldly laughed
when he saw the fury in Leng Bai’s eyes. He took a step forward and was
just about to once again vent the anger in his heart when a black shadow
suddenly flashed past. Xiao Yan’s low and deep voice sounded, “He has
already admitted defeat, why do you need to continue attacking? Is it
glorious to injure a person who is defenseless?”
“Hmph.” Xiao Yan’s obstruction caused the long lance held in Bai
Shan’s hand to tremble. He inhaled a deep breath of air and hid the
anger within his heart. With a snort, he carried the long lance in his
hand, turned around, and charged into the battleground between the new
and older students. His long lance carried a ‘chi chi’ sound,
appearing majestic just like a silver-colored giant python.
Xiao Yan frowned as he eyed Bai Shan leaving. He then glanced at the
fight on Wu Hao’s side, which had also reached the ending phase. Only
after seeing that the latter was about to win did Xiao Yan turn his head
over and look at the furious face of Leng Bai. He waved his hand and
threw over a bottle of healing medicine.
Leng Bai was startled after receiving the medicinal bottle. The fury on
his face gradually lessened. He did not return the medicine. Instead, he
pulled apart his clothes and poured the ice-cold medicinal liquid onto
his wound, where fresh blood was dripping. Only then did he slowly sigh
in relief. His finger flicked onto the storage ring and a blue glow was
shot toward Xiao Yan.

Xiao Yan extended his hand and grabbed the blue glow. He took a look only
to find that it was a pale-blue-colored Fire Crystal Card. The number on
the Fire Crystal Card had actually reached eighty-six. Among all the Fire
Crystal Cards Xiao Yan had seen during this period of time, this was the
highest number he had seen.
Xiao Yan held the Fire Crystal Card and did not act like a saint and
return it. This was their group’s spoils of victory and was not his
own. Therefore, he merely cupped his hands toward Leng Bai to thank him.
“That companion of yours is nothing much. Tell him that I will return
that lance attack I received today.” Leng Bai lifted his head to lean
against the tree trunk as he spoke faintly.
“I’m sorry.” Xiao Yan sighed. Bai Shan indeed went a little
overboard with regards to this matter. If he had beat up Leng Bai until
this manner in combat, no one would say anything. However, he had given
such a heavy blow after the opponent had admitted defeat and lowered his
defenses. This did not really follow the rules.
“Although you have borrowed the strength of the new students to defeat
our three groups, it will not be possible for you to take the reward and
return to the Inner Academy.” Leng Bai’s gaze paused in the
battleground between Wu Hao and Xiu Yan. At that place, Xiu Yan had
already shown signs of weakness in a hard head on collision between the
two of them.
“I know. There are still the two groups called ‘Black White Evil
Stopper.” Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders and replied.
“Looks like you know quite a lot.” Leng Bai raised his eyebrows when
he heard Xiao Yan’s words. He felt a little astonished.
“What I have said earlier are not some boastful words. This so-called
‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition’ is purposefully set up by the Inner
Academy. This is because many new students are very haughty when they
arrive at the Inner Academy. Therefore, the Inner Academy has designed
this Hunting Competition. Its purpose is to allow the older students to
oppress the vigor of the new students in the forest. Hence, it is easier
said than done if you want to forcefully charge out of this forest.”
“I just don’t want us to be robbed until we have nothing left before
we enter the Inner Academy. Moreover, I must say that the so-called
methods that you older students used to rub off the vigor of the new
students is really repulsive. Perhaps it is because they had once
received such treatment in the past that they want to return it to the
new students. However, this common practice of one batch passing on to
the next really won’t do. Even if we did not retaliate this time
around, it is likely that there would be new students who would lead
groups to resist.” Xiao Yan spoke slowly. His gaze eyed Wu Hao, who had
finally shook Xiu Yan with one palm until the latter took over ten steps
back. In his heart, he knew that the victory in the battle there was
Leng Bai was silent. He also clearly understood that the old students
participated in this ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition’ not only to
snatch the ‘Fire Energy.’ There were some who basically participated
because they wanted to smooth the shadows in their hearts.
“Alright, the battle can be considered to have ended here.” Xiao Yan
exhaled a breath of air. He turned his gaze toward the somewhat chaotic
battleground. That place had Xun Er, Hu Jia, and Bai Shan participating,
the few older students from the Inner Academy who endured bitterly
finally could no longer maintain the stalemate. After relying on a fierce
aura to injure a couple of new students, they were completely suppressed.
“Ah, what severe losses… these older students are indeed very strong.
The Inner Academy is indeed a good place to hone people.” Xiao Yan’s
gaze swept over the open ground and shook his head helplessly. There were
less than fifteen of the originally forty or so new students who could
still stand after defeating the twelve older students who had cooperated
well with one another. Most of the remaining students had temporarily
lost their combat strength, and lay panting on the ground due to their
At the moment the final older student fell on the ground, a rejoiceful
cry that contained some pain immediately sounded on the open ground. The
ten plus new students, who could still move, could not resist the
agitation in their hearts as they emitted joyful laughter. In an instant,
a layer of joyful atmosphere spread over the original suffocating
atmosphere the ground had previously held.
“Haha, everyone, take a look at your companions first. Rub these
healing medicine on them. The remaining people should collect the Fire
Crystal Cards from the older students’ hands. Since we have obtained
victory, it is only natural that we should begin distributing our
spoils.” Xiao Yan lifted his head to eye the excitement-filled faces of
the new students and smiled. He slowly took a step forward and took out a
large amount of healing medicine from within the storage ring. He placed
it on a rock and smiled as he spoke to everyone.
“Yes!” At this moment, everyone basically obeyed Xiao Yan’s orders
after this great comeback of theirs. Hence, everyone shouted in unison
when they heard his words and immediately did as he ordered. In an
instant, the empty ground appeared a little busy once again.
“Are you alright?” Xiao Yan smiled and asked as he saw Xun Er, Hu
Jia, and Wu Hao who were walking over toward him.
The three of them nodded. Xun Er and Hu Jia still appeared alright but Wu
Hao was panting a little. Clearly, the hard head on fight he had with Xiu
Yan earlier had greatly exhausted his Dou Qi and physical strength.
Xiao Yan tapped his hand on his storage ring and a small jade bottle
appeared. He tilted it slightly and poured out three ‘Energy Recovery
Pills,’ which he handed to the three of them. “These can allow you to
quickly recover your Dou Qi. Eat it.”

Xun Er smiled and received the medicinal pill. She did not hesitate even
a little as she threw it directly into her mouth.
On the other hand, Hu Jia and Wu Hao hesitated a little before taking one
and thanking Xiao Yan softly.
Xiao Yan carelessly smiled, raised his head and could not help but heave
a long sigh as he watched the busy clearing. They had finally managed to
completely finish off the three groups. Next, as long as they were given
a day to rest, they would be able to charge against the so-called
‘Black White Evil Stopper.’
“Tsk tsk, they really do have some ability. They actually managed to
swallow those three older student groups.” Two old men on the top of a
tree within the vast sea of trees slowly opened their eyes. They
exchanged glances and shook their heads while they spoke with smiles and
“The strength of that little fellow called Xiao Yan seems to be quite
great. He was actually able to defeat Su Xiao so swiftly. Although he
used the special effect of the Sonic Dou Technique, his clear-cut attack
and his sharp eyes are something that even some of the older students in
the Inner Academy do not possess.” One of the old man praised.
“Ke ke, that’s right. Perhaps after this Hunting Competition is over,
we should let that old fellow Hu Gan send us some information regarding
this little fellow. I think that with his potential, he might be able to
squeeze into the top ten of the ‘Strong Ranking’ after undergoing the
Inner Academy’s training.” The other old man nodded his head slightly
and spoke with a smile.
“Yes.” The old man who had spoken earlier nodded slightly. He
stretched his lazy waist and said, “However, the good luck of these new
students is about to end soon. The ‘Black White Evil Stopper’ this
year are some sturdy fellows who frequently earn ‘Fire Energy’ within
the Fighting Arena. What?”
Before all the words sounded, the old man’s expression changed
slightly. A shocked voice was emitted from his mouth. He tilted his head
and exchanged glances with the other old man before saying in a shocked
voice, “Those five Qis…? Good fellows. It is really unexpected that
there is a fisherman who has come to get a bargain while the sandpiper
and the mussels fought. They are indeed worthy of being people who
muddled among within the Sports Arena. What a cunning tactic.”
Xiao Yan smiled as he eyed the fifteen pale-blue Fire Energy Cards in his
hands while standing in the open forested area. His heart let out a long
sigh. This was a big acquisition.

Xiao Yan lifted his gaze and swept across the new students whose eyes
were fiery hot. He smiled and said, “Next, we can begin to distribute
Just as Xiao Yan’s voice had sounded, a foreign faint laughter was
suddenly emitted from within the dense forest without any warning.
Finally, the voice slowly reverberated within the the empty ground,
causing everyone’s bodies to stiffen.
“Tsk, the new students this year are indeed not ordinary. They were
actually able to defeat all the other eight older student groups but this
is also quite good. We shall take all of the ‘Fire Energy’ off your
Xiao Yan’s smile-filled face suddenly stiffened. A coldness flashed
over his eyes as he slowly lifted his head and threw his gaze toward a
spot in the dense forest. The tree leaves suddenly moved at that spot.
Immediately, five figures, whose entire bodies were filled with a fierce
Qi, flashed and appeared above the tree trunk, like five human-shaped
Magic Beasts. They looked down toward the people in the open ground from
their high vantage point.
