Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-468
Xiao Yan stood just outside the door after exiting the ‘Blazing Sky Qi
Refining Tower.’ He lifted his head and eyed this mysterious black
tower, where only the top of it was exposed. He was unable to resist
letting out a long breath. For some unknown reason, he constantly felt
that this black tower was not that simple…
“Hu, it is really unexpected… it actually agglomerated a ‘Fire
Spirit’ with emotions and intelligence. Tsk tsk. No wonder the Inner
Academy is so strict. They even created a ‘Space Lock,’ which even an
elite Dou Zun would have to use all his might in order to cast…” Just
as Xiao Yan was sighing, Yao Lao’s surprised voice suddenly sounded in
Xiao Yan was slightly startled when he heard Yao Lao’s words. His
expression did not change as he looked all around him. After which, he
waved his hand toward Wu Hao, who still appeared slightly giddy. After
which, he turned his body and walked on the path which they had used to
travel here earlier.
“What is the ‘Fire Spirit’ that teacher just mentioned?” Xiao Yan
walked at a steady pace, that was neither fast nor slow, along this road
lined with trees. Only then did he inquire about this in his heart.
“An alternate life form that is created from pure flames… that
invisible flame serpent that you saw earlier should be the intelligence
that was created from within the ‘Fallen Heart Flame.’ It can even be
said that the fire python is the original body of the ‘Fallen Heart
Flame’ within this ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower!’” Yao Lao
“What? That fire python is the ‘Fallen Heart Flame?’” Xiao
Yan’s footsteps suddenly paused. His expression involuntarily changed a
little as he could not help but let out a startled cry.
“Yes, I should not have sensed wrongly… Those strange flames between
the Heavens and Earth would grow into various different unique forms
after being accumulated over time. An example is the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ which you met in the lava underground. That plant form that is
similar to a lotus is only formed after the core flame has undergone
thousands of years of suppression…” Yao Lao said in a deep voice.
“Of course, the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ which we found last time
may possess a plant form but it had not formed an emotion or intelligence
that belonged to it. However, earlier… I truly felt that fire python.
This kind of flame body, which possesses intelligence that belongs to
itself, is what we call a ‘Fire Spirit.’ Its intelligence should be
comparable with some ultimate Magical Beasts that can possess a human
“Then… how do we refine this kind of ‘Fire Spirit’ even if we
obtain it? Earlier, I also sensed the frightening aura of that thing.
I’m afraid that even a strong Dou Huang might not be its match. How can
we swallow it?” Yao Lao’s words caused Xiao Yan to feel shocked. He
did not expect that even a flame was able to form its own consciousness.
However, now that this flame already had its own consciousness, it would
definitely not be willing to be swallowed and refined by other people.
Seeing the frightening aura that it displayed earlier, Xiao Yan
immediately became dispirited.
“It is indeed very difficult… however there is no other choice. Of
course, it does not matter if you are willing to give up this ‘Fallen
Heart Flame,’ and go and search for other ‘Heavenly Flames.’” Yao
Lao laughed faintly.
“What joke are you cracking… are ‘Heavenly Flames’ so easy to
Xiao Yan immediately cried out within his heart when he heard this. After
spending a couple of years, he had obtained the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ by relying solely on luck. Now that he had found the ‘Fallen
Heart Flame’ after much difficulty, how would he be willing to give it
“In that case we can only wait and see… actually let’s not mention
how we are going to handle it after we get the ‘Fallen Heart Flame.’
Just how do we obtain it is already filled with numerous problems.” Yao
Lao’s voice contained a tone as if he had a headache, “The strong
people in this Inner Academy are as numerous as the clouds. In the tower
earlier, I could vaguely sense that there exists extremely faint but
powerful auras a few levels below. The strength of these auras is such
that in my current spiritual form, it is impossible for me to gain much
advantage when fighting with them.”
Xiao Yan’s knit his brows as his ten fingers were tightly hooked
“Moreover, at this moment, I can confirm that the reason the Inner
Academy is able to increase the training speed of the students is
basically due to the existence of the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’… They
sealed the ‘Fallen Heart Flame,’ which had formed a spirit, into the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower,’ borrowing its effect of letting the
‘Fallen Heart Flame’ form a split body at the invocation of a
person’s heart when he is close to it. This allows the students to use
it to strengthen their Qi Paths and refine Dou Qi…
“They… are… rearing the ‘Fallen Heart Flame!’” Yao Lao slowly
exhaled a breath of cool air as he faintly exclaimed.
Xiao Yan’s hands, which were held together, abruptly trembled. He wiped
the cold sweat on his forehead without leaving a trace. In his heart, he
continued to feel shock at these crazy and bold actions of the Inner
Academy. These fellows were really too frightening. They actually had the
courage to try to tame a thing that had the greatest destructive forces
between the Heavens and Earth.
Only after Yao Lao’s explanation did Xiao Yan understand that the Inner
Academy had reared the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ like one would rear a
dairy cow. After which, they repeatedly obtained an unending amount of
‘milk’ from it; the split bodies of ‘Fallen Heart Flame’… this
kind of action could indeed be called insane.
“An expert is indeed bold. This Inner Academy is really
frightening…” Xiao Yan swallowed a mouthful of saliva and muttered in
“Hmph, bold? I think they are playing with fire and will end up getting
burned.” Yao Lao coldly snorted.
“Why? From what I saw, there seems to be no problem?” Xiao Yan said
“Hei, currently, they are relying on the lock of the ‘Space Cage’,
so there is indeed no problem. However, this is merely an expedient
measure. By relying on that ‘Space Cage,’ it is impossible to
continue keeping the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ sealed within the tower.”
Yao Lao laughed, “A fire can be scattered, but cannot be blocked. This
‘Fallen Heart Flame’ is a unique flame that is formed from the
Heavens and the Earth. It possesses true destructive strength… by
sealing and blocking it in this manner, it is like the Inner Academy is
building a barrier on the mouth of a volcano. Have you seen anyone who
can block a volcano? Its current oppressed manner is merely because it is
storing strength. At the time when it erupts, this ‘Blazing Sky Qi
Refining Tower’ will immediately be destroyed!”
“Even though the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ is frightening, those old
fellows from the Inner Academy are also not some useless lot. Before the
eruption, one will charge and one will block. Both parties will have some
losses. At that time, it might perhaps be our chance…”
“Teacher, you mean that we should wait for the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’
to erupt by itself?” Xiao Yan was startled as he said in a stunned
“Ah, we can only do this. We are small in number and weak in strength.
There is no use if we openly do it…” Yao Lao nodded and replied.
“Then when do we need to wait until?” Xiao Yan rolled his eyes and
“Based on the counterattack of the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ earlier,
there might be a turn of events soon. At the very most, it will take two
years and at the very least it will take one.” Yao Lao mused for a long
while before he lowered his voice as he revealed information softly in
Xiao Yan’s heart.
Xiao Yan’s pupils swiftly flashed. A long while later, he carefully
watched his surroundings. Other than Wu Hao, who was repeatedly knocked
his giddy head, there was no other movement. The words Yao Lao had spoken
concerned the matter of the life and death of the Inner Academy.
“In the days that follow, you must make the most of the time and train
in the tower. It would be best if you can raise your strength to the Dou
Ling class in half a year’s time. At that time, with the inclusion of
the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ and the ‘Flame Splitting Tsunami,’ I
think that you can run wild without fear within the Dou Ling class. If
you use the ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’ that is formed from the
combination of the Purple and the Green Flame, it is likely that even the
Elder Su, from outside the forest back then, would not have the courage
to receive it head on with one hand…”
“It would be best that you try your best not to use the large-scale
‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’ that combines the ‘Bone Chilling
Flame’ and the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame.’ That thing may have a
frightening strength, but its backlash is simply too great. At times, you
will lose more than what you gain.”
“Additionally, you should go and begin practicing that Di class Agility
Dou Technique, ‘Three Thousand Lightning Movement.’ As long as you
successfully practice that thing, you should be able to be in an
unshakable position when you face ordinary Dou Lings. Even if you meet a
strong Dou Wang, you should have the ability to flee even if you are
unable to beat him. We must now agglomerate our strength in preperation
for the eruption of the ‘Fallen Heart Flame.’”
Yao Lao’s voice was like shooting a bullet. His great amount of words
caused Xiao Yan to continue smiling bitterly. It was only a long while
later before he completely disgested those words.
“It seems that there are still the various ingredients for the
‘Ground Spirit Pill’ right?” After slowly swallowing all of the
various reminders from Yao Lao, Xiao Yan mused for a moment only to
realize that there was something that Yao Lao missed. Immediately, he
spoke with a smile. This thing was also a necessary item. Otherwise, even
if he were to obtain the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ in the future, it was
likely that he would not dare to touch it.
“Uh… indeed. However, those ingredients are all extremely rare items.
You need to pay careful attention.” Yao Lao was startled before he
immediately nodded and responded.
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly and nodded. He raised his head and eyed the
blue sky before he involuntarily exhaled. Were there not so many
“Why are you sighing? Is it because of the problems of ‘Pan
A voice suddenly sounded behind him. Xiao Yan turned around and took a
look. It was actually Wu Hao. The current him seemed to have recovered
from his unconscious state after being grilled by the Heart Flame.
“Ke ke, it’s nothing.” Xiao Yan laughed softly before saying,
“Let’s go. We should return and take a look first.” Once he said
that, he took the lead to quicken his footsteps, and flew through the
road that he had come from earlier. Wu Hao followed close behind.
After nearly forty to fifty minutes, Xiao Yan and Wu Hao gradually moved
closer to the residence area of the new students. As he slowly walked
into the residence area, the empty road caused the two of them to be
Just as the both of them were somewhat stunned, a human figure suddenly
came running out from within the residence area while panting. When he
saw Xiao Yan and Wu Hao, joy immediately swarmed onto his face. He rolled
and crawled as he rushed over while shouting, “Head, something
“What is it?” Xiao Yan hurriedly moved forward and asked when he
heard the loud cry of this new student.
“There is someone who wants to pull some new students away, but no one
agreed in the end. As a result, those fellows wanted to create trouble.
Now, they are forcing Senior Xun Er and Hu Jia to fight!”
“Who has come?” Xiao Yan’s expression sunk. He hurriedly walked
toward the interior. As he walked, he voiced his question.
When he heard Xiao Yan’s question, that new student involuntarily
became a little hesitant. This scene caused Xiao Yan’s footsteps to
pause as he said in a deep voice, “Speak!”
“The person leading them… is Bai Shan.” The new student could only
reply with a bitter smile after he was reprimanded.
“This bastard repays kindness by stabbing people in the back!”
After hearing this, Xiao Yan and Wu Hao’s expression instantly became
