Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-462
“Xiao Yan, this ‘Pan Gate’ has just been established and you have
already run away. In the many years that I was part of the Law
Enforcement Unit, this is the first time that I have seen such an
irresponsible leader…” Wu Hao complained helplessly to Xiao Yan who
was swiftly walking in front of him on this spacious road. After this
fellow had confirmed the name of the faction earlier, he had thrown the
matter of settling the new students to Xun Er and Hu Jia before finding
an excuse to slip away.
“They will be able to get it done properly. I only created the effect
of gathering people’s hearts. Now that I have already pulled people in,
I can naturally rely on those two to settle the troublesome matters. It
would not be too late for us to show ourselves and take responsibility if
someone were to create trouble.” Xiao Yan slowed his footsteps and
laughed toward Wu Hao. After which, he turned his head and eyed the
spacious road around him. At this time, there would be some older
students from the Inner Academy rushing past on the road. However, there
were not many people who gave much attention to Xiao Yan and Wu Hao.
Clearly, not all of the older students had heard the name of the leader
of this batch of new students.
Wu Hao helplessly shook his head. He then lifted it, looked at the the
road, which extended in all directions, and asked, “Where are you
planning to go?”
“Let’s go to the north to take a look…” Xiao Yan’s finger
slowly rubbed the black ring as he lifted his chin to the north. After
listening to what Yao Lao had said last night, he might be able to obtain
some clues about the ‘Heavenly Flame’ if he were to search in that
general area. The current Xiao Yan felt impatient when it came to
searching for the ‘Heavenly Flame’ in order to enable himself to
swiftly raise his strength. Hence, he did not want to delay for even a
“North?” Wu Hao was stunned momentarily before he nodded his head
indifferently. In any case, they had come out to familiarize themselves
with the school grounds. It didn’t matter where they went.
“Let’s go.” Xiao Yan waved his hand. His feet abruptly stomped on
the ground. Following an energy explosion, his entire body emitted a
‘xiu’ sound as he shot away. The speed of his body caused some of the
older students coming and going to display surprise in their eyes.
“This fellow…” Wu Hao shook his head. Some blood-colored Dou Qi
suddenly surfaced on his legs. As the Dou Qi fluctuated slightly, Wu
Hao’s body also became slightly illusory. Immediately, his body
quivered and actually bizarrely disappeared from that spot. When he next
appeared, he was already ten meters away. In a few flashes, he swiftly
gave chase after Xiao Yan.
From the Agility Dou Qi that both Xiao Yan and Wu Hao displayed, it was
undoubtedly that the latter appeared a little more ethereal. If he were
to fight with others, this kind of agility would cause his opponent to
have a headache.
“What a strange Agility Dou Technique….” The older students coming
and going watched a bloody shadow, which disappeared from their sight,
and could not help but voice their praises.
The size of the Inner Academy was so large that it was a little beyond
Xiao Yan’s and Wu Hao’s expectations. The two of them expended their
energy and ran wildly for nearly half an hour. However, they still did
not reached the boundaries of the Inner Academy. Along the way, they were
frequently able to see some battle circles where people sparred and had
heated fights. There were quite a number of people watching around them.
Some people, who were more talkative, would shout out the openings that
were exposed by the two fighters as they watched. In the end, it caused
the two people fighting to feel more alarmed the more they fought. In the
end, they could only withdraw their hands and pull back with faces filled

“Those who can enter the Inner Academy of the Jia Nan Academy are
indeed not ordinary people. This kind of in depth sight is sufficient to
cause those Outer Academy students to be unable to match.” Xiao Yan
sighed when he withdrew his gaze from a certain battle circle.
“Most of the students here have undergone various refining. If any
random one of them were placed in an empire within the continent, it is
likely that they would be treated as a genius. The eyesight of these
people is not surprising.” Wu Hao smiled and continued, “However, the
atmosphere here is indeed quite fierce. They would immediately start a
fight on the spot to settle any disagreements.”
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. His gaze swept around and was a little
stunned to discover that for some unknown reason, there was an increasing
number of people clustering over on this road headed north. Each of them
unleashed their speed to the maximum. Hence, Xiao Yan and Wu Hao only saw
human figures repeatedly rushing past the trees by the sides of the road
as well as the ‘hu hu’ rushing wind sound.
“It looks like they are all hurrying north? What exactly is over
there?” Wu Hao had similarly realized the increase in the number of
students as he asked in surprise.
“Hei, We will know once we go over and take a look.” Xiao Yan smiled.
His feet stepped off the ground as his body once again shot out. Finally,
Wu Hao followed closely, like the maggots in a bone.
The quick traveling this time around lasted for another twenty plus
minutes before Xiao Yan’s and Wu Hao’s speed gradually slowed. A
large black mass, consisting of many students who had come to a stop,
appeared in front of them at this moment.
“Why are there so many people?” Xiao Yan could not help but be
stunned as he watched this black mass of people that were like ants.
“I don’t know…” Wu Hao was also unfamiliar with this place.
Hence, he could only helplessly shake his head.
Xiao Yan fondled his chin with his hand. He took one look at the
surroundings before swiftly arriving under a huge tree. He spoke to Wu
Hao, “Let’s go up and take a look…” Once he said this, Xiao Yan
leaped onto a tree branch without waiting for Wu Hao’s reply. His body
was like an agile monkey as he climbed up the tree in an extremely agile
manner. In merely dozens of seconds, his body appeared on top of a large
tree with a single leap.
Xiao Yan watched the scene below from a high vantage point as he stood on
the top of the tree. His gaze floated past the black mass of the human
crowd and directly swept over to the front. Immediately, his face was
startled. His mouth also slightly opened, “This is…?”
A depressed area appeared within Xiao Yan’s sight. Within that
depression was an extremely large black tower deeply buried underground,
revealing only the tip of the tower and a dark entrance.
The tower was buried in the ground?
This kind of extremely strange scene caused the astonishment on Xiao
Yan’s face to become increasingly dense. It was a long while later
before he gradually recovered and muttered, “Don’t tell me that this
is the so-called ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower?’ It is really
unexpected… is it actually buried underground. Can one go in and train
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept in the details across the single layer of the
tower that was above the ground. He suddenly knit his eyebrows as he
discovered that the space surrounding the body of the tower appeared to
be faintly twisted and had some wrinkles. He had seen this kind of
defense at the Outer Academy’s ‘Book Collection Hall’…
“Good lord, they actually specially placed this level of defense…”
According to what Deputy Headmaster Hu Gan had explained last time, Xiao
Yan clearly knew that in order to set up this kind of defense that
twisted space, one would need to have at least the strength of a Dou
“Dou Zun…” Xiao Yan laughed bitterly and shook his head. A strong
person of this class was really too frightening. They were actually able
to use space, something which was ethereal and invisible, to do whatever
they pleased. Just what kind of terrifying realm was Dou Sheng, or even
Dou Di which was above both of them?
Just as Xiao Yan was repeatedly marveling the frightening strength of an
elite Dou Zun, a large rushing wind sound appeared not far behind him. He
turned his head and was a little shocked to realize that dozens of human
figures flashed over from far away. The speed of these people was
extremely fast. In less than ten seconds, the human figures steadily and
orderly appeared on the branches of a few large trees beside Xiao Yan.
“These people are quite strong…” Upon inspecting these human
figures at close proximity, Xiao Yan realized that theses dozens of human
figures all wore a badge, similar to a leaf, on their chests. It appeared
that these people all belonged to the same faction.
“Ah, there are indeed many factions within the Inner Academy. Our
‘Pan Gate’ has only just been created…” Xiao Yan laughed bitterly
and shook his head. His gaze stared at those human figures only to
realize that they had already rushed down by themselves after observing
the scene below. The large group of people dived down from high up in the
air before they directly charged to the front of the large group of black
mass in an extremely rude and unreasonable manner.
This action of forcefully cutting queue clearly caused everyone to be
angry. However, when people saw the leaf-shaped badge on their chests,
they could only angrily swallow the words that reached their mouths.
“I think that this faction should have quite a great amount of strength
within the Inner Academy…” Xiao Yan watched everyone’s reaction
with his eyes as he softly muttered. Immediately, he moved along the tree
trunk and swiftly leaped down.
When his legs landed on the ground, Wu Hao, who had not stood beside him,
hurriedly met up with him. He asked, “Have you checked it out
“This place seems to be the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower.’”
Xiao Yan patted his hands and immediately squeezed toward the crowd. He
smiled and said, “Let’s go, let us see just what use this ‘Blazing
Sky Qi Refining Tower’ has. It can actually allow people to train with
such great speed.”
“This is the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower?’” Wu Hao’s
expression was slightly joyful when he heard this. He hurriedly followed
Xiao Yan and did his best to squeeze into the human crowd. Clearly, he
was also very interested in this thing.
When Xiao Yan and Wu Hao reached the limit of the human flow after some
difficult squeezing, they could no longer squeeze forward. The reason was
not that the people in front had been squeezed until it was packed. On
the contrary, there was an extremely spacious empty ground in front of
them. A couple of dozens of meters, on the opposite side of the empty
ground, was that mysterious black tower deeply buried in the ground.

At this moment, the spacious ground was divided into a couple of areas in
an extremely orderly manner. There were a large group of people seated
with their eyes shut within each area. Xiao Yan’s gaze swept over these
human figures. He realized that the people he had seen on the treetops
were among them.
“These people should belong to some of the stronger factions within the
Inner Academy. They are rather overbearing. They need not to wait in line
and can directly occupy the best positions. Tsk tsk, no wonder Atai said
that in the Inner Academy, one must build or join some strong factions in
order to obtain the best training conditions.” Wu Hao said in a soft
“It is indeed a little over-bearing…” Xiao Yan nodded a little. He
deeply observed the various factions, whose members were seated
cross-legged with their eyes closed. He did not come into the limelight
and walk into that circle. He understood that currently, ‘Pan Gate’
did not possess that kind of qualifications. Once he advanced to the
‘Dou Ling’ class, he might perhaps be able to stand among them.
However, for now, it was better to keep a low profile.
Just as Xiao Yan and Wu Hao were softly discussing, an ancient gong
sounded mightily in this area. Following the sounding of the gong, the
noisiness came to an abrupt halt.
“Open the tower!”
As the gong sounded, an old voice appeared to be transmitted out from
within the tower.
Not long after the old voice sounded, one could see that the dark, black
door, which was tightly shut, began to slowly creak open. A faint hot
aura seeped out from it, causing the temperature of this area to be
Xiao Yan’s eyes suddenly shrunk as he sensed the temperature
difference. His hand had also tightened at this moment.
“Enter the tower!”
The old voice sounded once again. Immediately, all of the people in the
empty ground with their eyes closed suddenly opened them. They abruptly
stood up. One could only hear the sound of rushing wind as the numerous
human figures shot explosively toward the tower entrance from all
“Go, let’s go in as well.”
Xiao Yan restrained his heart, which had suddenly become agitated. He
waved his hand at Wu Hao and led the way into the empty ground. After
which, they swiftly walked toward the mysterious black tower buried deep
As they narrowed the distance between them and the tower, Xiao Yan
finally truly sensed the enormous size of this black tower. This was
merely just a level that was exposed above the surface. Yet, it was
actually equivalent to a two or three story building. The corner of an
iceberg was like this. It was difficult to imagine just how majestic the
body of the tower, that was hidden underground, was.
Xiao Yan’s footsteps paused a couple of meters in front of the black
tower. He gave way to others and stood off to the side, weighing this
black tower, which appeared a little ancient, in great detail. He did not
know what material was used to build the tower, but it faintly emitted a
heaviness and… icy-coldness?
“What a strange place. The interior of the tower is clearly filled with
a fiery heat, but they used a material that contains coldness to build
the body of the tower? This… how strange.” Xiao Yan shook his head
slightly. He had some doubts. Completely opposite effects were coexisting
in the same place. This kind of implementation usually only existed when
“Let’s go, Xiao Yan.” Wu Hao urged as he pulled Xiao Yan, whose
eyes was staring intently at the black tower.
“Yes.” Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He turned his head and eyed the
black front door. For some unknown reason something within his body moved
As they moved closer and closer to the main entrance of the black tower,
the pounding of Xiao Yan’s heart became increasingly intense. A moment
later, as he stood in front of the main entrance, his palms were actually
filled with perspiration.
Xiao Yan stood in front of the main door and inhaled a deep breath of
air. He suppressed the emotions in his heart and clenched his teeth. His
heart was unruly as he lifted his feet and immediately stepped heavily
into the darkness behind the main entrance.
The light in front of him suddenly darkened. An instant later, Xiao Yan
sensed that his feet were stepping on the surface of a tough rock.
However, his heart did not have the time to relax after his feet stepped
on firm ground when his expression suddenly changed drastically. A
delicate and handsome face suddenly became as red as burning charcoal.
This scene… was extremely strange!
