Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-455
As the ice-cold word was emitted from Luo Hou’s mouth, the entire
mountain slope of rocks suddenly became silent. From the ready to fight
atmosphere, everyone understood clearly in their hearts that it was
likely that today’s matter would not end nicely. An intense big fight
Xiao Yan’s gaze stared intently at Luo Hou’s face. A long while
later, he nodded slightly. That voice of his had also become much more
cold, “Since Senior Luo Hou is unwilling to let us pass, then we can
only offend you.”
Xiao Yan’s hands slowly held the hilt of the Heavy Xuan Ruler. He
immediately and abruptly drew it. A black shadow cut through the air and
an intense wind swept away some of the rock fragments in front of him.
The ruler was pointed sideways toward the ground. Green-colored Dou Qi
surged out from within Xiao Yan’s body. Since the matter had already
progressed to such a point, they had reached the stage where they could
not give up because of any unforeseen change in events. Hence, they were
left with no choice but to fight!
Following Xiao Yan’s action, Dou Qi also began to swiftly swarm out
from the bodies of Xun Er and the two others that stood beside him. Waves
of powerful force repeatedly rippled out. Their forces locked on Luo Hou,
who stood in the middle, from far away. In order to defeat the enemy, one
must first defeat their king. The most troublesome person in this
‘White Demon Group’ was this Luo Hou. As long as they defeated him,
they need not be worried about the others.
“I will block Xiao Yan and the three others. Ye Hao, the four of you
stop those new students. Do not spread out when you fight. Although there
are many new students, they don’t know how to cooperate. As long as you
firmly hold yourselves together, and rely on the merging of your four
synergetic Dou Qis, you have quite a high chance of victory.” A faint,
white-colored cold air repeatedly seeped from Luo Hou’s body. His gaze
glanced at Xiao Yan and the three others before turning to a member of
the ‘White Demon Group’ and spoke. His cold sharp eyes could see the
weakness of the new students with a single glance.
“Yes!” Hearing this, those four members of the ‘White Demon
Group’ replied with deep voices. The Dou Qi in their bodies surged, and
threads of cold air began to be released from their bodies. From the
looks of it, it appeared that all the members of this ‘White Demon
Group’ practiced ice affinity Dou Qi.
Xiao Yan was visibly affected as he eyed the cold air around those four
people. The strength that was unleashed from the collaboration of Dou Qi
of the same affinity would be able to increase significantly. Viewing
from this point, the overall strength of the ‘White Demon Group’ was
significantly stronger than the ‘Black Demon Group’ lead by Sha Tie.
No wonder they were the people who guarded the final checkpoint.
“This Luo Hou actually dares to face four opponents by himself. If this
person was not wildly arrogant, then it means that he had some trump
cards and hidden strength.” Xiao Yan’s spoke to Xun Er and the other
two softly as this thoughts lingered for awhile in his heart, “We do
not need to warm up in this battle. Hence, you all don’t need to hold
anything back. Try your best to defeat him. Don’t waste even a second
or there might be some unforeseen events if we delay any longer.
The three of them nodded slightly. The Dou Qi in their bodies was like a
turbulent flood as it swiftly passed through the Qi Paths in their
bodies. A feeling of being filled with strength spread over the bodies of
the three of them. In that condition, all they needed was to move a
little, the surging Dou Qi would follow their will, and unleash

Following the Dou Qi of both parties permeating all over their bodies,
the tense atmosphere faintly became even sharper.
All the older students on the mountain slope remained quiet. Currently,
the ‘White Demon Group’ was the final hurdle in this ‘Fire Energy
Hunting Competition.’ If even they were unable to block the attacks of
the new students, Xiao Yan’s group would perhaps break the curse that
the ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition’ was the most bitter period for
a new student before entering the Inner Academy.
“Can Xiao Yan’s group defeat the ‘White Demon Group?’” From one
corner of the mountain slopes, Su Xiao watched the two sides giving a tit
for a tat below, and could not help but whisper to Sha Tie who sat beside
“No matter what happens, they do have a chance and that’s it. I
can’t really say much about the others. After all, regardless of
whether we are discussing individual strength or the strength of the
group, the ‘White Demon Group’ is much stronger than the ‘Black
Demon Group’. Xiao Yan and the others were able to defeat us, but they
may not gain the advantage when facing the ‘White Demon Group’…”
Sha Tie shook his head. He was similarly unclear about the end result and
could only give Su Xiao a vague reply.
Su Xiao could only helplessly smile when faced with this vague reply. He
turned his head and threw his gaze to the imposingly sharp face near the
messy rock piles.
The atmosphere of the messy rocky area, where all the gazes had gathered,
was becoming increasingly tense. Everyone’s expressions slowly became
solemn. The Dou Qi glow on the surface was extended and contracted, much
like the feelings of everyone at the moment, having difficulty calming
A gentle breeze blew past. A rock fragment from the mountain suddenly
rolled down and heavily crashed into a rock on another spot. Immediately,
it was crushed into pieces.
The sudden clear sound was undoubtedly like throwing a stone into the
calm surface of a lake. Immediately, an enormous wave would rise and
roll. The dozens of different colored Dou Qis surged out from the messy
rocky ground. The hue was beautiful because of the multiple colors. The
wildly flowing Dou Qi directly caused the pressure in the area to soar.
Some tall and straight green grass bent their bodies from the pressure
caused by these Dou Qi.

As the forces surged, two simultaneous cries were emitted from Xiao Yan
and Luo Hou’s mouth without any prior planning. As these two voices
sounded, the tense atmosphere suddenly broke!
As the human figures flashed, the low roar, that contained a fiery
fighting intent, reverberated without disappearing on the battlefield.
At the moment that the cry sounded, Xiao Yan’s hand suddenly tightened
on the hilt of the ruler. His feet violently stomped against the ground
and a green-colored energy exploded under his feet. The pressure caused
by turbulent energy undulations directly turned Xiao Yan’s body into a
black shadow as it shot into the middle of the rocky ground where Luo Hou
When Xiao Yan’s body moved, Xun Er and the other two behind him
followed closely. The gap between the four of them was maintained within
a one meter radius. At this distance, the four of them could join hands
anytime and anywhere to handle a sharp attack that came from any
Behind Xiao Yan’s four man group, there was a large group of new
students roaring loudly as they charged over. Although their formation
was scattered, their force was the strongest one present due to them
having so many people.
The expressions on the faces of the four members from the ‘White Demon
Group’ were indifferent. They did not feel the slightest fear because
of the large numbers and strong imposing manner of Xiao Yan’s group.
Their hands shook and four white-colored metal rods, which were five feet
long, flashed and appeared. A low cry was emitted as the four people
borrowed the force of the metal rods touching the ground to shoot
forward. They swiftly shot past Xiao Yan’s four man group. Finally, the
four metal rod danced wildly, like the rotating wind, and finally stopped
all the remaining dozens of new students behind.
Xiao Yan did not turn his head around when he heard the whirring wind
sound behind him. His gaze stared intently at Luo Hou, whose body was
standing straight atop a piece of rock. Xiao Yan gripped the heavy ruler
in his hand and immediately used his strength to hack downward. A sharp,
green-colored Dou Qi glow immediately exploded out from the ruler.
Releasing Dou Qi into one’s surroundings. This was an attacking method
representative of a Da Dou Shi. This was similar to a long range attack
by a practitioner.
After the green-colored Dou Qi glow appeared, Xun Er and the two others
also released three powerful glows. Four glows cut through the
obstructions of the air as they carried a violent wind and smashed toward
Luo Hou’s face was indifferent as he eyed the four turbulent Dou Qi
projectiles being shot over. His hands trembled a little and a ten foot
long cold metal rod, which appeared to be molded from cold ice, flashed
and appeared. His hands held the body of the long rod tightly and the tip
of the rod pierced out explosively. Immediately, one could see images of
the rod repeatedly and continuously appearing in midair. Each rod image
solidly smashed into the four glows. After this was repeated for a couple
of times, the four glows, which contained powerful forces, were actually
scattered forcefully by him. This strength was something that people
really marveled at.
“He is indeed worthy of being a strong Dou Ling. What a sharp attack.”
This attack of Luo Hou caused Xiao Yan’s expression to change slightly.
Looking just at this action of defusing these four glows, the strength of
this Luo Hou was much stronger than the Junior Sect Leader of the Blood
Sect which Xiao Yan had killed back in the ‘Black Corner Region.’ Of
course, part of the reason here was that the Qi Method which that Junior
Sect Leader used to raise his strength was too much of a cheap trick.
Hence, it resulted in the Dou Qi within the latter’s body being
superficial. If he were to really fight with someone, that fellow’s
strength was at the very most at the peak of the Da Dou Shi class.
This thought flashed in his heart and swiftly disappeared as Xiao Yan’s
expression became serious. The heavy ruler in his hand let out a
‘chi’ sound as it cut through the air, transforming into a black
shadow that carried a depressing sound. His body moved up and down like a
half leap as he viciously hacked at Luo Hou.
Behind Xiao Yan, an energy palm that contained some gold-colored flames,
a long green-colored whip, and a blood-colored heavy sword, also carried
their own powerful force as they formed a fan like shape, completely
surrounding the area around Luo Hou.
Seeing the concentrated attack of Xiao Yan’s four men group below, some
of the expressions of the older students on the mountain slope
involuntarily changed. This was because they clearly understood in their
hearts that if it were them who was receiving the attack, they would
likely be defeated the moment of contact.
“These four people are indeed very strong. Especially that black-robed
young man…” Some of the hearts of the older students could not resist
emitting a sigh. After personally witnessing the attack of these new
students, they finally understood why the older students, who had
participated in this year’s ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition,’ had
been so miserably defeated. Only at this moment did they come to a sudden
understanding. It was not that the strength of the older students
participating in the ‘Fire Energy Hunting Competition’ was weak, but
rather the strength of this year’s new students was too strong.
At the moment, this thought was swiftly spinning in the hearts of
everyone on the mountain slope, Luo Hou, who had been quietly standing in
the battleground without moving, finally made a move. His hands held the
cold metal rod tightly. Treads of mist-like cold air spread out from the
rod as a cold deep cry sounded.
“Circular Cold Spinning Rod!”
As Luo Hou’s cry sounded, the cold air, in the form of a mist,
shrouding the cold metal rod immediately rolled and rose. A mysterious
arc was formed from the rotation. Immediately, the cold air formed a
circular shaped ice shield under the quick rotations of the cold air,
completely wrapping Luo Hou’s body within it.
Four ferocious attacks suddenly landed from above on the ice shield that
was formed from the fast rotating metal rod. Immediately, a deep muffled
sound resounded throughout the entire messy rocky area.
Powerful forces followed the ice shield and spread downward before they
were finally skillfully discharged onto a rock. The rock was immediately
cracked, forming numerous crack lines before it exploded into rock
fragments with a ‘bang’.
Luo Hou’s body was bent slightly as a cold cry was emitted from his
mouth. The fast spinning cold metal rod suddenly paused. Immediately, the
tip of the rod swiftly pierced forward, once again forming afterimages
that filled the sky. It viciously struck the weapons of Xiao Yan’s four
man group. The force that suddenly erupted directly shook the four of
them until they hurriedly pulled back two steps.
Fighting against four people by himself, yet not showing any signs of
losing. The gap between a strong Dou Ling and a Da Dou Shi was indeed
difficult to measure.
“*Roar*, nice. Show those arrogant new students what skill really looks
like!” Seeing that the initial attack of Xiao Yan’s four men group
failed, cheers immediately sounded on the mountain slope.
Xiao Yan’s body somersaulted through the air before immediately landing
on a rock. He lifted his head to watch the cold and indifferent Luo Hou
before slowly exhaling a breath. The other party’s strength was even
stronger than he had expected. Moreover, adding this to the fact that a
rod specialized in defense, it would likely be very difficult to defeat
him within a short time even if the four of them were to join hands.
“What should we do?”
Xun Er and the other two had similarly withdrawn to his side with frowns
on their faces. The tortoise-like defense of the other party caused them
to feel like a tiger eating a hedgehog, having no place to start.
Xiao Yan glanced at the chaotic battle circle behind him. He immediately
knit his eyebrows tightly together. The strength of the four members of
the ‘White Demon Group’ similarly exceeded his expectations. The four
metal rods danced like four metal shields. When the attack of an ordinary
new student landed on it, not only was it ineffective but it would also
be reflected back by the strange force contained on it.
Hence, within less than five minutes after this fight had begun, there
were no less than five new students lying on the ground after their
bodies had become weak from having the metal rod touching them. From the
looks of it, it appeared that there would be a new student who lost their
combat ability around every one minute or so.
The gap between the classes was thoroughly displayed in this battle
circle. Nearly over forty Dou Shi class new students were actually unable
to do anything against four Da Dou Shi class older students, This kind of
great disparity caused people to be unable to help but sigh emotionally.
This fight had only just begun but the situation had already begun to
shift away from expectations. This caused Xiao Yan’s expression to be a
“Those new students are indeed a plate of scattered sand. This year, if
it were not for Xiao Yan, who had an extremely great gathering ability,
it is likely that they would be like the previous years, being robbed by
the older students until they had nothing.” On the mountain slope, Sha
Tie eyed the dozens of people fighting against four people. Not only did
the former group not have any success, but they were instead repeatedly
losing more students. Sha Tie could not help but shake his head and give
voice to his thoughts.
Su Xiao and the others beside him nodded. The overall strength of this
year’s new students was not much stronger than previous years. However,
in the previous years, a person like Xiao Yan, who had the courage and
resolution to gather all the new students, did not appear. However, even
if that were the case, just an incomplete group of people did not have
adequate strength to fight against the ‘White Demon Group’, the
strongest tiger blocking their path.
“This battle cannot be dragged out for too long. The longer it is
dragged, the more disadvantageous it is for Xiao Yan’s group. Seeing
the performance of those new students, it was clear that it was
impossible for them to surround and defeat the ‘White Demon Group.’
Instead, if it continues like this, in at most twenty minutes or so, they
will be completely finished off. At that time, once the members of the
‘White Demon Group’ free up their hands, Xiao Yan’s group will have
no opportunities to turn things around.” Sha Tie helplessly said.
Although he thought highly of that strange, green-colored flame that Xiao
Yan used, regardless of how that flame suppressed Luo Hou ice affinity
Dou Qi, the superb rod techniques the latter used was still able to block
them. It appeared that it was a little too early for him to be gloating
During the time that Sha Tie and the others were discussing the situation
that Xiao Yan’s group faced, Xiao Yan had similarly discovered this
point. He let out a long sigh and said, “Looks like we cannot delay any
Xiao Yan inserted the heavy ruler violently into the crack line of the
rock. He turned his head toward Xun Er and the two others before saying
in a deep voice, “Delay him. Buy me some time!”
Once he said these words, Xiao Yan flicked his finger. A purple-colored
Yaowan shot into his mouth. He chewed slightly and immediately spat out a
cluster of purple flames in front of everyone’s gazes. The flame landed
in his palm.
TL: Danwan/Yaowan – pill shape items that have no medicinal effect and
can be potentially dangerous to consume.
Seeing that Xiao Yan had actually spat out a cluster of purple-colored
essence flame, the mountain slope immediately went into an uproar. Sha
Tie and the others, who originally felt regretful at the disadvantage
Xiao Yan’s group was facing also had stunned expressions. They did not
expect that other than the green-colored flame, Xiao Yan actually had
another purple-colored flame…
Elder Su and Elder Qing on the rock platform also raised their eyebrows
in shock at this moment.
Xiao Yan ignored the noise from the entire place. He tightly held the
purple-colored flame with his left hand while he slowly raised his right
hand. His finger twisted a little and the elegant green-colored flame
once again let out a throbbing sound, and turned into a cluster of green
flames, which stopped above his right hand.
Following the appearance of the green-colored flame, the temperature of
this region suddenly rose.
The two colored flames, that were soaring shined onto those stunned
faces, causing the scene to appear especially comical.
“This… This is…”
The expressions of Elder Su and Elder Qing, who were leisurely leaning
against the backs of their chairs on the rock platform, suddenly changed
the instant that the green-colored flame appeared. Their bodies suddenly
straightened and their eyes stared intently at the elegant green flame. A
moment later, they exchanged glances with one another and saw shock in
each other’s gazes. “Heavenly Flame?”
Their knowledge was naturally far from what Sha Tie and the rest could
compare with. Hence, the moment that the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’
appeared, the two of them were able to recognize the exact details of it.
“This damned Hu Jia. He actually did not even tell us about such
important information. What a muddle-headed old man…” The shock in
their eyes still remained as Elder Su and Elder Qing muttered to each

Luo Hou eyes stared intently at the two colored flames in Xiao Yan’s
hands. His usual cold and indifferent expression finally became extremely
solemn. As he practiced ice affinity Dou Qi, he was extremely sensitive
to the change in temperature. The moment the green-colored flame
appeared, he was basically shocked to discover that the ice-cold Dou Qi
in his body had actually become sluggish!
“What is that flame? It can actually affect the flow of the Dou Qi in
On top of the solemness on Luo Hou’s face, there was an additional
astonishment. His hands held the cold metal rod tightly as he used great
effort to force his Dou Qi to flow, trying his best to get rid of that
Seeing the two different colored flames in Xiao Yan’s hands, Xun Er and
the other two understood his intentions. They nodded and the three of
them immediately formed a triangle-shaped formation and explosively shot
toward Luo Hou. Their Dou Qi surged wildly and they actually unleashed
the Dou Qi in their bodies to the limit.
Luo Hou did not dare to slight the sharp attack of Xun Er’s three man
team. Although he was extremely fearful of Xiao Yan behind them, he could
only wave the cold metal rod in his hand at this moment and receive all
of the attacks from the three of them. After which, he performed his
fiercest counter attack, hoping to defeat the three of them in the
shortest amount of time. At that time, the fighting strength of Xiao Yan,
who had lost his companions, would be severely reduced.
Of course, his idea was good but Xun Er’s three man team was not like
those ordinary new students. After a few days of collaborating against
their enemies, they had already trained until there was an understanding
in their cooperation. Although the three of them were unable to break
through Luo Hou’s metal rod defense, even after working together, they
were at least able to cause him to be unable to move his body to disturb
With Xun Er’s group delaying Luo Hou, Xiao Yan’s palms had already
began to gradually make contact in front of everyone’s gazes. Seeing
this action of his, the older students of the Inner Academy might not
have felt anything, but the expressions of Elder Su and Elder Qing on the
rock platform changed drastically. With their experience, they naturally
clearly understood just what kind of immense force would be formed when
such flames merged…
“This crazy fellow… should we act to stop him?” Elder Qing
muttered. He immediately turned his head and asked Elder Su by his side.
Elder Su knit his brows tightly together. His eyes did not blink as he
stared at Xiao Yan’s calm and quiet face. A moment later, he shook his
head and said, “He seems to have some confidence…”
“How can this be? Even if one was an elite Dou Huang, one would not
dare to do such a thing. Once he loses control and an explosion occurs,
the destructive force released is more than frightening…” Elder Qing
said in a deep voice.
“Let’s watch…” Elder Su’s gaze did not make the slightest
movement. All he did was merely speak in a soft voice.
“You… ah…” Seeing this, Elder Qing could only helplessly sigh.
The boundless Dou Qi in his body also began to circulate, ready to handle
any sudden and unexpected situations. After all, there were many students
here observing the fight.
Under the focus of all the gazes, the green-colored flame in Xiao Yan’s
hand finally made contact with the purple-colored flame. Immediately,
wisps of green and purple flame seedlings began to swiftly spread out
from the point of contact. At the spot where the two made contact, the
space seemed to be torn apart by the powerful strength until it began to
Xiao Yan’s expression was indifferent as he eyed the two different
colored flames, which were intertwined with one another. He heavily
clapped his hands together, appearing as though he had done this hundreds
of times. Following a clear muffled sound, the two flames were forcefully
merged into a cluster of a green and purple flame. Spiritual Strength
swarmed out from his brow, maintaining it at a mysterious equilibrium.
The green-purple flame repeatedly appeared distorted and immediately
began to swiftly shrink in Elder Su’s and Elder Qing’s shocked gazes.
It finally came to a slow stop after it had shrunk to around the size of
a fist. The flame moved slightly before finally slowly broke apart. An
extremely beautiful green-purple fire lotus drifted in front of Xiao Yan.
“Xun Er, all of you move aside.”
The green-purple flame was suspended half an inch above Xiao Yan’s
palm. His expression was a little pale as he commanded them softly.
As Xiao Yan’s words sounded. Xun Er and the two others, who were
bitterly engaged in a stalemate with Luo Hou, immediately flashed and
pull back. In a few leaps, they appeared behind Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan lifted his head slowly and watched the horrified face of Luo
Hou. A cold smile appeared on his pale face as he gently flicked the Fire
Lotus out of his palm. The Fire Lotus immediately drew past the long
empty air like a falling star. Under the focus of everyone’s eyes, it
carried a beautiful green-purple trail as it shot explosively toward Luo
