Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-452
In the completely destroyed clearing, Hu Jia and the three remaining new
students watched as the single remaining member of the ‘Black Demon
Group’ was defeated, and could not help but heave a long sigh of
relief. Their legs immediately lost strength as they collapsed to the
ground, the sound of them panting like billows echoed repeatedly from
Following the defeat of the last member of the ‘Black Demon Group,’
with the exception of Sha Tie, the spectating students, whose nerves were
strained, finally could no longer endure the excitement and wild joy in
their hearts. They ignored the injuries on their bodies as they leaped to
their feet and wildly shouted. In an instant, various wild shrieks and
hollers spread through the air above the empty ground.
Xun Er’s delicate hand wiped the perspiration from her forehead. The
golden glow emitted from her body also began to dim. These three rescues
had caused some difficulty for her. If it were not for the fact that the
Qi Method that she practiced was not a low class method, it would have
been likely that she would have been like Wu Hao, whose combat strength
greatly deteriorated as a result of over exhaustion of his Dou Qi.
Xun Er supported herself by leaning against a tree trunk. She took
advantage of this short time frame to catch her breath before sweeping
her gaze to the place where Xiao Yan’s battle was happening. When she
saw that Xiao Yan did not show any signs of becoming defeated despite
being forced by his opponent to the point where he faced continuous
danger, she heaved a sigh of relief. A smile that caused Su Xiao and the
others to feel graced to be in her presence made its way onto her face.
“Xiao Yan’s group has already gained the advantage in this fight.”
Su Xiao sighed as he recovered from Xun Er’s blooming flower-like
stunning smile. The expression on his face was extremely brilliant. It
was really unexpected that the ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition,’
which did not have any big incidents after being held for so many years,
would suddenly have an unexpected turn of events that left them stunned
this year when they themselves participated. This really caused Su Xiao
to be speechless. Originally, he had planned to accumulate some ‘Fire
Energy’ from the new students to enter the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining
Tower’ to train for a period of time. In the end, not only did he not
obtain any ‘Fire Energy,’ rather, he ended up losing his. This was
really a double whammy.
Leng Bai and Xiu Yan exchanged gazes beside him. Their hearts were a
little sad and chaotic as they laughed bitterly. They were really
terribly unlucky to have met this kind of situation.
“As long as these fellows devote themselves to training hard within the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ for a period of time after they enter
the academy, I’m afraid that they will be able to sneak their way into
the ‘Strong Ranking.’” Su Xiao shifted his body to let himself lean
more comfortably against the tree trunk. His gaze was thrown toward Xiao
Yan, who was having a heated battle with Sha Tie. These words of his had
a sense of marvel that was difficult to hide.
Although he had already viewed Xiao Yan very highly, he did not expect
that the latter would actually be able to rely on his own strength to
endure this long at Sha Tie’s hands. It should be known that Sha Tie
was a seasoned veteran in fighting techniques and frequently mingled in
the Fighting Arena within the Inner Academy. His fighting experience
could be called shrewd and ruthless. Even the lower level Dou Lings with
little battle experience would have difficulty defeating him. From this,
it could be seen just how rich Sha Tie’s combat experience was.
However, it was this person, whose strength was not only a few stars
higher than Xiao Yan but whose combat experience was also very seasoned,
who was unable to defeat the latter after such a long time. This scene
could not help but cause Su Xiao and the rest to feel speechless at Xiao
Of course, they naturally did not know that if it were not for the
green-colored flame in Xiao Yan’s hand causing Sha Tie to suffer
greatly, it was likely that Xiao Yan would really have difficulty holding
out for this long in Sha Tie’s hands without showing any signs of
defeat if he just relied on the strength of his own level.
Leng Bai and Xiu Yan quietly nodded when they heard Su Xiao’s words.
Thus far, the various things that Xiao Yan had displayed had already far
exceeded their expectations. Reaching the level of a six star Da Dou Shi
at such an age. This kind of training talent really caused some people to
be utterly amazed. None of them had any doubt when it was said that he
would be able to enter the ‘Strong Ranking’ of the Inner Academy.
Xun Er, Hu Jia, and the others rested on the sidelines for two to three
minutes before they stood up once again. They exchanged glances with one
another and nodded slightly. Gold and green-colored Dou Qi once again
surged out of their bodies. Finally, they moved in a similar fashion
toward the left and right, surrounding the battle grounds where Xiao Yan
and Sha Tie were exchanging blows. Dou Qi extended out and shrunk back
into their palms, ready to seize Sha Tie’s opening and give him a heavy
The other three new students, on the other hand, could only watch Xun Er
and Hu Jia’s actions since their Dou Qi was completely exhausted.
Currently, they were unable to gather even the slightest bit of strength
to go forward and help. Of course, with their strength, they were indeed
unable to get involved in this level of battle.
A fist wrapped in green-colored flame once again heavily collided with
Sha Tie’s fist which was covered by the dark-golden-colored Dou Qi
Armor. A clear clang suddenly sounded.
Xiao Yan’s shoulders quivered rapidly as he sensed the powerful force
that transmitted from the point of contact between their fist. His
muscles fluctuated a little like a water ripple. A green flame suddenly
ignited within his black pupils as he inhaled a deep breath of air while
a low cry was emitted from Xiao Yan’s throat. The Dou Crystal vibrated
quickly within the vortex of his body. Wisps of green-colored flame
swiftly surged out from that small Acceptance Spirit space, finally
moving along his Qi Paths to reach his fist.
As Xiao Yan’s cry sounded, the green-colored flame on his hand suddenly
soared. Finally, it turned into a large cluster of flames that moved
along the point of contact between the fist and instantly swept over Sha
Tie’s Dou Qi Armor. Immediately, the sound of ear-piercing sizzling
repeatedly emitted from Sha Tie’s Dou Qi Armor.
Following the explosive surge of this cluster of green-colored flames,
Xiao Yan’s face suddenly became much dimmer. By mobilizing such a large
amount of ‘Heavenly Flame’ to attack, it not only consumed a great
amount of his Dou Qi, but also placed an immense burden on his Spiritual
The green-colored flame that suddenly adhered to his body caused Sha
Tie’s expression, hidden under the Dou Qi Armor, to change drastically.
An extremely high temperature repeatedly permeated through the Dou Qi
Armor from outside. At the very least, it grilled Sha Tie’s skin until
it was fiery red.
“Dammit! What is this flame exactly?”
Sha Tie let out a soft but furious roar in his heart. Currently Sha Tie
was enraged. In the earlier exchanges, each time he was about to strike
Xiao Yan’s body, that green-colored flame would take the initiative to
pounce toward him, forcing him to pull his hand back. Hence, he could not
take advantage of any openings despite this exchange having lasted for
more than ten minutes. Instead, he was suppressed by Xiao Yan to the
point where he could not even move to win. A moment ago, he had gotten a
chance to give a hard punch, something which was difficult to come by.
However, that damn flame had coincidentally come sticking onto him. How
could he not be angry at this kind of hopelessly stupid battle?
While Sha Tie was furious in his heart, his body was swiftly pulling
back. As he did so, anything which he collided with would be instantly be
incinerated by the green-colored flame and turned into ashes.
At this moment, Sha Tie had suddenly appeared to have become a
green-colored flaming person in other people’s eyes while he repeatedly
randomly fell back.
Even the hard armor on Sha Tie’s body, which was like a tortoise shell,
was starting to be charred by that green-colored flame until it gradually
became pale. Just as the Dou Qi Armor had become vaguely visible, the
green-colored flame, which had left Xiao Yan’s control, finally
extinguished extremely suddenly with a ‘xiu’ sound.
The perspiration covered Sha Tie sighed in relief at the green-colored
flame which had suddenly disappeared. If this flame had lasted a little
longer, he did not dare say just how long he could endure with just his
flesh should his armor be compromised…
At the same time Sha Tie sighed in relief, he clenched his teeth and
lifted his head. He eyed Xiao Yan and involuntarily let out a cold smile
when he saw the other party’s somewhat dimmed face. However, before his
cold laughter was completely transmitted out from his mouth, his
expression suddenly stiffened.
Under Sha Tie’s gaze, he saw that the originally dim-faced Xiao Yan
waved his hand and a jade bottle appeared within his hand. The latter
swiftly poured out three round medicinal pills before popping them into
his mouth in front of Sha Tie. The initial medicinal strength immediately
began to swiftly disperse and the dimness on Xiao Yan’s face faded
slightly compared to his earlier condition.
After consuming the medicinal pills like one would consume candy, Xiao
Yan raised his head and smiled at Sha Tie. He shook both his hands
slightly and the green-colored flame, which caused Sha Tie’s face to
stiffen, exploded out once again. This time around, however, it clearly
no longer had the power it did a moment ago. Nevertheless, just this
alone still caused the corner of Sha Tie’s mouth to twitch.
“Even if this fellow is an alchemist, he didn’t need to eat it like
that, did he? Do medicinal pills not cost money?” Sha Tie’s
expression turned a little green. In his heart, however, he felt an
incomparable bitterness and anger. It was already shameless to rely on
that weird flame to fight. Yet, this fellow actually ate those medicinal
pills like candy, using it to recover the Dou Qi which he had completely
exhausted. How was Sha Tie going to fight against this?
“Hee hee…” Xiao Yan laughed when he saw Sha Tie’s expression. His
gaze swept toward Xun Er and Hu Jia by the side. A moment later, he
lifted his chin and the three of them flashed forward at the same time.
The powerful attacks were all headed for Sha Tie. At this moment, the
hard tortoise shell like Dou Qi Armor belonging to Sha Tie had basically
been cooked by Xiao Yan’s ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ until nothing
was left. This was the perfect time to strike!
The green-colored flame was swiftly overtaking Sha Tie’s field of
vision. As he recalled the pain from being burned by that flame earlier,
Sha Tie’s face contorted. His gaze swiftly swept over his four
companions who had already been defeated and helplessly shook his head.
He immediately inhaled a deep breath of air as his voice sounded in the
empty forest like thunder, shocking everyone.
Three sharp attacks suddenly stopped just as they were half a meter from
Sha Tie. The footsteps of the three of them staggered as they flashed
back in an extremely agile manner. Xiao Yan raised his eyebrows and asked
with a smile, “What is it?”
“We have lost…”
Sha Tie sighed as he spoke in an extremely helpless manner. With the
current situation, he did not think that he had any ability to resist. Of
course, if it were not for the green-colored flame in Xiao Yan’s hand
suppressing him in every way, he would be able to go all out and fight
against three people by himself. Unfortunately…
The helpless voice emitted from Sha Tie’s mouth slowly reverberated
within the empty ground of the forest. Under these words, everyone fell
into a silence. These sudden words from this fellow admitting his loss
were indeed a little too shocking. From the looks of the situation
earlier, it appeared that he was suppressing Xiao Yan as they fought.
Originally, everyone thought that this battle would become even more
intense. In the end, this silent atmosphere continued for a long while in
the empty ground before some of the new students finally recovered.
Immediately, thunder-like cheers shook the entire forest until it rustled.
