Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-450
Sha Tie’s eyes stared intently at the green-colored flame that rose
from Xiao Yan’s palm. The instant that the flame had materialized, he
clearly sensed that the temperature between the trees rose by a lot. His
expression immediately became more serious as he looked at Xiao Yan with
some astonishment and asked, “You are an alchemist?”
In the Dou Qi continent, there were only two possibilities for one to be
able to summon out an Essence Flame. One was the Fire Seed that an
alchemist had obtained from the various different kinds of fire affinity
Magical Beasts, which he would then refine for his own use.
The other possibility was that a he was a strong person who practiced a
fire affinity Dou Qi. However, if one wanted to rely just on Dou Qi to
agglomerate an Essence Flame, one must at least be at the Dou Wang class
before they could begin to think about succeeding. Of course, nothing was
absolute. There were also some people who practiced Dou Qi of the fire
affinity and were not alchemists but were able to obtain some strange
flames for their own use. Similarly, however, the requirement placed on
the level of one’s strength was extremely harsh. Seeing the current
Xiao Yan, it was clear that he had not met the requirements of the latter
possibilities. Hence, Sha Tie had immediately chose to voice the first
Xiao Yan did not reply Sha Tie’s astonished words. The green-colored
flame spread out from his hand, and swiftly wrapped both his hands within
it. He lifted his head slightly and a green-colored light occasionally
flared in his dark black pupils.
Xiao Yan’s feet once again stomped against the ground. He could hear a
clear muffled sound as his body turned into a pale-green-colored blur
which carried an extremely high temperature, and shot explosively toward
The blazing air that pounced toward his face caused Tie Sha’s brows to
furrow slightly. Although he could not determine what type of flame Xiao
Yan had summoned, he could vaguely guess that the strength of this flame
was definitely not weak from the sharp rise in the temperature of his
Sha Tie’s iron pagoda like body stood in the same spot. He did not
choose to dodge. The golden Dou Qi bestowed upon him gave him a great
attacking and defensive strength but it deprived him of agility. He knew
that even if he wanted to dodge, he would definitely be unable to escape
Xiao Yan’s attack. Since this was the case, why should he bother doing
something so futile and instead risk exposing a weakness in the process?
The hot air became increasingly closer. Sha Tie emitted a stern cry from
his mouth and dark-golden-colored Dou Qi abruptly surged out from within
his body. The golden light shot out and finally absorbed Xiao Yan into
it. At a glance, it appeared as though he was a person molded entirely
The heated atmosphere was only reduced a little after the Dou Qi Armor
appeared. Sha Tie’s enormous gold-like fist was slowly tightened.
Finally, it was thrown out without any fancy moves or skill.
Although Sha Tie’s fist did not have any variety in his move, the
terrifying strength contained in it directly caused the air around Xiao
Yan to be saturated with it. At this moment, absolute strength embraced
Xiao Yan’s face tensed. The Dou Crystal within the vortex of his body
repeatedly trembled. Wave after wave of powerful Dou Qi was spat out.
Finally, it swiftly circulated within his Qi Paths, allowing Xiao Yan to
be filled with fighting strength.
Green-colored flames swiftly enshrouded his fist before it suddenly
struck out. It heavily collided with Sha Tie’s fist in an impartial
manner. In an instant, a powerful ripple spread out from the middle of
the two of them, shaking and splitting the few large trees near the two
of them, forming a couple of crack lines. The trees became shaky and
The ferocious force being transmitted from their fists caused Xiao Yan to
swiftly take two steps back. On the other hand, Sha Tie’s body merely
trembled a couple of times. It appeared that in terms of a competition of
pure strength, Xiao Yan was still a little weaker than Sha Tie.
Of course, Xiao Yan may have been shaken until he took two steps back but
Sha Tie also felt a little uncomfortable. The green-colored flame on Xiao
Yan’s fist caused him to suffer greatly. In the collision earlier, his
fist would have likely been roasted until it swelled up by a couple of
layers had it not been for his Dou Qi Armor isolating it. Even though
this was the case, Sha Tie’s fist still had a faint searing pain.
Sha Tie’s gaze obscurely swept over the green-colored flame in Xiao
Yan’s hand. Shock flashed through his heart. It was not that he had
never seen the flame of an alchemist. He had even fought with some of the
students from the Alchemist Department in the Fighting Arena but the
flames that those students summoned could not breach his Dou Qi Armor and
cause him to even feel a little injured. However, that strange
green-colored flame on Xiao Yan’s hand today had this kind of
frightening unique ability. This caused Sha Tie to involuntarily feel a
solemn feeling within his heart.
The moment the thought in Sha Tie’s heart was swiftly spinning, Xiao
Yan had once again pounced toward him. This time, however, he gave up on
having head on collisions. Instead, he began to use the advantage of his
agility and repeatedly flashed around Sha Tie’s body like a ghost. His
fists frequently carried a green-colored flame as they were thrown out,
carrying a ‘Qiang Qiang’ sound of metal clashing within the empty
Sha Tie did not have too great of a response toward Xiao Yan’s nearly
continuous attacks. He dodged those that he could, and forcefully
resisted those that he could not. Occasionally, he would wave his heavy
fist and the feeling of an increasingly heavy force on it caused Xiao Yan
to have no choice but to pull back to dodge it.
The moment Xiao Yan and Tie Sha’s fight was becoming increasingly
fierce, the other few battlegrounds had also slowly entered into a
Perhaps it was because they had already fought once earlier but the Dou
Qi which was spread over the surface of Hu Jia’s and Wu Hao’s body
started to become a little dim after nearly six to seven minutes of
battle. Hu Jia was a little better but Wu Hao’s strength, speed,
dodging ability, etc. had already greatly declined because of his
weakening Dou Qi which resulted in him beginning to be suppressed into a
disadvantageous position by his opponent from the ‘Black Demon Group.’
If it was not because of the killing aura within Wu Hao’s attacks being
too strong and that the member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ was a
little afraid of being seriously injured, it was likely that Wu Hao’s
fight would have been even more difficult.
Compared with these two people who were each in a somewhat disadvantaged
situation, Xun Er was the complete opposite. Golden light shot out
explosively from her palms. Her body was as elegant as a wisp of light
smoke while her attacking speed was so fast that it brought about
numerous afterimages. Perhaps it was because she clearly understood that
Wu Hao and Hu Jia could not last long. Therefore, she did not have any
thoughts of preserving her strength. Occasionally, she would display
powerful Dou Techniques, forcing her opponent back until the latter was
in tough spots. If it were not because of his rich combat experience, it
was likely that this unlucky member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ would
be the first to be defeated.
Outside of these three battlegrounds, there was the most chaotic
battleground. That was the one where fifteen new students were fighting
with the final ‘Black Demon Group’ member. Although there were a
great number of new students, the fifteen of them all had a varying
amount of injuries due to their fight with the three groups lead by Su
Xiao earlier. It was naturally impossible for them to obtain victory now
that they met a strong person whose strength was around the five star Da
Dou Shi level.
Hence, in merely less than ten minutes, five of the fifteen new students
were already injured by that ‘Black Demon Group’ member and had
withdrawn. The remaining ten could only rely on their cooperation with
one another to barely hang on. However, it was clear that the cooperation
between them was not very good. Hence, every two to three minutes, their
opponent would find an opening and injure one of them until they
temporarily lost the ability to continue fighting.
In five battlegrounds on this empty land, Hu Jia’s, Wu Hao’s, and the
new students’ ones were all in an unfavorable situation. By relying on
his ‘Heavenly Flame,’ Xiao Yan was able to contend with Sha Tie for a
while. However, if he did not use a decisive attack, it was clearly
impossible for him to obtain victory. Hence, among the five
battlegrounds, only Xun Er was in a complete advantage.
In the current battlefield, whichever side could first free up an extra
pair of hands was crucial. As long as there was someone who could defeat
their opponent half a minute earlier than the others, this battle would
perhaps swiftly point the victory indicator to that side!
Everyone present in the battlefield, including all those new students who
were not participating, understood this point. Hence, their gazes were
all firmly staring at the battleground of Wu Hao and Xun Er. This was
because these two places would be the two battlegrounds where they would
be the first to obtain victory or the first to lose.
The blood-colored Dou Qi spreading all over Wu Hao’s body was growing
increasingly dim. Clearly, Wu Hao’s Dou Qi had already begun to enter
into the stage where it was about to burn out. When he fought with Xiu
Yan earlier, he had exhausted all his strength. Now he needed to undergo
this kind of high cost battle. He was about to be unable to hold on even
though he had consumed Xiao Yan’s ‘Energy Recovery Pill’ a moment
The blood-colored heavy sword in his hand violently hacked at the
opponent. However, his current degree of strength and speed allowed the
opponent to easily dodge it. The latter’s body flashed and appeared on
Wu Hao’s left side. The knife in his hand carried a sharp force as it
hacked at Wu Hao’s wrist. Immediately, Wu Hao’s blood-colored sword
left his hand. The ‘Black Demon Group’ member let out a pleased cold
laughter. Dou Qi shrouded his hands and he immediately struck heavily at
Wu Hao’s chest. Seeing this momentum, it was likely that Wu Hao would
be the first to be defeated if he were to be struck.
Under the focus of everyone, his fist became increasingly close to Wu
Hao. However, just as his fist was about to land on Wu Hao’s body, the
somewhat grayish-dark-faced Wu Hao suddenly widened his eyes. Two blood
lines flowed out of his nose. A rich killing aura surged out of his body
as though he had suddenly got his second wind just before falling. A low
and deep roar sounded from his throat. The originally dark and
pale-blood-colored Dou Qi once again became bright red. He tightened his
fist and suddenly threw it out fiercely.
As both fists made contact, a muffled sound reverberated unceasingly on
the open ground. Wu Hao’s shoulders trembled intensely while that
member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ let out a muffled groan. A thread
of blood flowed down from the corner of the latter’s mouth. He took a
couple of continuous step back while sliding against the ground before he
managed to stabilize his body. Lifting his head, he looked at Wu Hao’s
much paler face with a mixture of shock and fury. Clearly, Wu Hao had
displayed a certain Secret Technique that would overdraw his strength in
order for such a strength to erupt instantaneously earlier.
However, seeing the color on Wu Hao’s face, it appeared that the
current him could no longer use this kind of Secret Technique to overdraw
his strength for a second time.
“Hmph!” That member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ saw that Wu Hao
had already run out of steam and immediately let out a snort. He
forcefully suppressed the injuries within his body as his body turned
into a black shadow which once again shot toward Wu Hao.
Just as he was merely around five meters from Wu Hao, a black shadow
suddenly shot over. That member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ was
alarmed. His forward charging body paused and immediately began to
hurriedly take two step back.
As he was pulling back, the black shadow heavily landed on the ground.
The expression of that member of the ‘Black Demon Group’ changed.
This black shadow was actually the person who had been fighting against
Xun Er moments earlier.
An aghast expression flashed across his heart. He hurriedly turned his
head to take a look, only to see a green-clothed young lady standing
indifferently beside Wu Hao. Golden light shrouded her palm, piercing his
eyes until they were a little strained.
