Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-471
The atmosphere was solidified and quiet in this spacious, empty ground.
One by one, numerous gazes stared at the unmoving Fu Ao who lay dozens of
meters away. There was a shock that was difficult to hide within their
This was a three star elite Dou Ling. With Fu Ao’s strength, he could
enter the top seventy, even if placed within the entire Inner Academy.
Now, however, he was defeated by a new student who had just arrived in
the Inner Academy no more than five days ago. Moreover, this defeat…
was actually miserable to such an extent. They thought of how Fu Ao was
still acting triumphantly just ten minutes ago only to end up currently
lying not far away like a dead dog. This comical scene really caused
everyone watching from around him to feel a bizarre feeling.
“*Cough*, *cough*, *cough*…”
An intense coughing sound suddenly sounded in the empty ground, breaking
the quiet atmosphere
The heavy ruler in Xiao Yan’s hand made contact with the ground. One of
his knees was involuntarily placed on the ground. Some paleness appeared
on his delicate and handsome face. Dense amounts of cold sweat repeatedly
seeped out from his forehead. Looking from his hurried breathing, it was
clear that this victory was not without a price.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge, are you alright?” A figure flashed and appeared at
Xiao Yan’s side. Her delicate hand looped around Xiao Yan’s waist.
That green-clothed young lady could not help but speak with heartache as
she eyed the pale white face belonging to Xiao Yan.
“I’m fine. It is just the backlash for forcefully raising my
strength,” Xiao Yan lifted his body up with great difficulty as he
clenched his teeth and shook his head. The ‘Sky Fire Three Mysterious
Change’ may allow him to raise his strength for a short period of time,
but the damage that the wild energy caused within his body was also quite
extreme. If it was not because Xiao Yan was an alchemist and he had Yao
Lao, an extremely experienced Alchemist Grandmaster helping him from
within, it was likely that even he wouldn’t dare to use this technique
carelessly. Even though this was the case, his body would feel terrible
pain every time he used it.
Xiao Yan’s hand rested on Xun Er’s delicate shoulder. His eyes coldly
glanced at Fu Ao, who lay some distance away. Originally, this fellow
would not lose so miserably, However, he underestimated the extent at
which a ‘Heavenly Flame’ restrained water affinity Dou Qi. It was
likely that Xiao Yan would also not dare to fight head on against that
powerful attack which combined Dou Skill and a Dou Qi agglomerated object
had it been an element which was not suppressed by the ‘Heavenly
However, regardless of whether there was the element of luck in this
fight, Xiao Yan had obtained victory. This was already sufficient!
Xiao Yan took a medicinal pill for healing internal injuries from his
storage ring and stuffed it into his mouth. Only then did he turn his
head and throw his gaze toward Bai Shan’s group.
Seeing Xiao Yan’s sharp, knife-like gaze being thrown over, the group
of people from the ‘White Gang,’ including Bai Shan, could not resist
taking two steps back. Their faces were filled with vigilance as they
watched Xiao Yan.
“Fu Ao has lost. Take him away. Remember your promise to us. There are
quite a number of witnesses present. If you want to go back on your word,
this ‘White Gang’ of yours will be completely discredited.” Xiao
Yan did not adopt any overly stimulating action and merely spoke in a
“This fool thinks so highly of himself. He thinks no one can beat him
just because he is a three star Dou Ling. Now, not only did he lose, he
also left Xiao Yan and Pan’s Gate half a year to develop. After half a
year, it is likely that Older Cousin will have to personally come here if
they want to remove ‘Pan’s Gate’!” Bai Shan gnashed his teeth and
cursed angrily in his heart as he eyed Fu Ao, lying not far away like a
“Let’s go!” Bai Shan’s entire body felt uncomfortable as he was
stared at by Xiao Yan’s stark, cold gaze. A moment later, he finally
waved his hand as he cried out with a depressed and extremely unwilling
Once he said this, he took the lead in turning around and swiftly walked
out of the new students’ residency. Behind him, a few ‘White Gang’
members hurriedly followed. Two people stepped out and grabbed Fu Ao as
they passed by him along the way.
Seeing the group of people disappearing from the edge of their sight in a
miserable looking manner, those members of ‘Pan’s Gate,’ whose
nerves were tense, finally sighed in relief. However, this time, they did
not let out any cheers. They exchanged glances with one another and saw
an urgentness in each other’s eyes. What they saw, was an urgentness
for their strength to increase.
Although they had only just entered the Inner Academy a couple days ago,
they were truly able to sense the importance that strength had in the
Inner Academy. Previously, they could all be considered among the best in
the Outer Academy. However, now they were the most ordinary members
within the Inner Academy. In order to be able to not receive a
humiliation like the one today, they must raise their strength as quickly
as possible. They clearly understood in their hearts that it was
impossible to completely rely on Xiao Yan and the others to bear all the
matters within this Inner Academy. As members of ‘Pan’s Gate,’ they
also needed to contribute!
“Everyone, the show’s over. Please take your leave.” Xiao Yan
cupped his hands and smiled at the surrounding older students who were
watching as he spoke.
Hearing Xiao Yan’s guest expelling order, those observers around also
cupped their hands toward Xiao Yan in an extremely polite manner. After
which, they walked out in small groups, repeatedly engaging in private
conversations along the way. It was likely that they were discussing the
fight that had concluded earlier.

“Ke ke, Xiao Yan ge-ge, I’m afraid that very soon, the matter of you
defeating Fu Ao will spread throughout the Inner Academy.” Xun Er
smiled lovingly as she supported Xiao Yan.
“This is also good. At the very least, it should be able to frighten
those factions that have some ill intentions toward our ‘Pan’s
Gate.’” Xiao Yan sighed again. He raised his head and eyed those
members of the ‘Pan’s Gate’, who were looking at him fervently. He
slowly said, “Everyone, I think now all of you understand just how
important strength is within this Inner Academy, right?”
“Yes!” The dozens of new students nodded uniformly.
“Without strength, we can only be bullied by people who block our
entrance! Do you all want to endure what happened today a second time?”
Xiao Yan questioned in a deep voice.
“No!” A flush suddenly swarmed onto the faces of all the new
students. The blood in their hearts boiled as they roared.
“From tomorrow on, the members of ‘Pan’s Gate’ will begin to
enter the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ to train. By relying on Fu
Ao’s defeat today, there should not be any other factions coming to
find trouble with us for a short period of time. Hence, we must raise our
strength as quickly as possible during this period of time!” Xiao
Yan’s voice was low as he spoke.
“Moreover, by defeating Fu Ao today, we have undoubtedly given the
‘White Gang’ a ruthless slap to the face. Hence, they will definitely
not let this matter rest. Due to their promise, they will perhaps not
attack us during this half a year’s time. However, once half a year has
passed, the ‘White Gang’ will definitely show up!”
“In order for us to be able to resist the ‘White Gang’ in half a
year’s time, the matter of raising your strength is extremely urgent!”
All the members of the ‘Pan’s Gate’ had flushed faces as they
nodded heavily after hearing Xiao Yan’s cry!
“Alright. everyone can disperse for today. Gather here tomorrow. We
will collectively enter the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower!’” Xiao
Yan waved his hand. He immediately turned his body and walked toward the
small pavilion home. Just as he was about to enter the door, his
footsteps suddenly paused as he whispered to Xun Er beside him,
“That’s right, call Atai over here. I have some questions to ask
“Yes.” Xun Er nodded slightly, turned her body and left.
“How much do you know about the ‘White Gang?’”
Xiao Yan, Xun Er, Wu Hao, and Hu Jia were all seated on chairs in the
hall. Atai was also seated on a seat toward the left side. Xiao Yan’s
question was obviously directed at him.
“The leader of the ‘White Gang’ is called Bai Cheng, the older
cousin of Bai Shan. He is very strong with a strength around that of a
six star Dou Ling. It is said that he is also an expert on the ‘Strong
Ranking.’ He is also considered to be a person with a prominent
reputation within the Inner Academy.” Atai thought for a moment before
he spoke slowly.
“A six star Dou Ling? An expert on the ‘Strong Ranking’? What is
his rank?” Xiao Yan frowned slightly as his finger gently tapped on the
surface of the table. He had already displayed the ‘Sky Fire Three
Mysterious Change’ when he fought with Fu Ao, this three star Dou Ling.
Moreover, he had relied on the advantage of the ‘Green Lotus Core
Flame’ in order to luckily defeat the latter. If he were to meet a six
star Dou Ling, there would be a gap of a whole class. His chances of
victory… unless he used the ‘Flame Splitting Tsunami’ or… a large
scale ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame,’ his chances of victory would
basically be nil.
Atai replied honestly. His understanding of the Inner Academy somewhat
exceeded Xiao Yan’s expectations.

“A six star Dou Ling is only ranked thirty four… this ‘Strong
Ranking’ of the Inner Academy does indeed have quite a lot of golden
content.” Xun Er held a warm teacup as she spoke with a smile touching
the corner of her mouth.
“Yes. It is indeed very challenging.” Wu Hao nodded with a smile. A
wild and heated fighting spirit filled his face.
Xiao Yan crossed his ten fingers, leaned his body on the back of the
chair, and sighed, “What about the other members of the ‘White
Gang?’ What is their strength like?”
“Other than Bai Cheng, the ‘White Gang’ has three more elite Dou
Ling. One of them is Fu Ao whom you fought with today. The fighting
strength of the other two is perhaps a little stronger than Fu Ao, but
their levels are all around that of three star Dou Lings.” Atai sighed,
“There are in total thirty-four other members. Thirteen of them are
strong Da Dou Shi. The remaining are mostly around the peak Dou Shi
class. If they gain the opportunity, they may directly advance to the Da
Dou Shi class.”
“Four Dou Ling, thirteen Da Dou Shi and the rest are at the peak of the
Dou Shi class…” Xiao Yan sighed and muttered, “This ‘White
Gang’ is indeed quite strong… troublesome.”
“They are indeed quite strong. This ‘White Gang’ may not be
considered a top notch faction within the Inner Academy, but there are
not many people who would openly provoke them.” Atai laughed bitterly,
“If it was in the past, a faction of the level that the ‘White
Gang’ is in would usually not find trouble with a new student faction.
This time around, it is likely due to Bai Shan that they came and find
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. Bai Shan and him had long since been in
conflict. Now that the former had entered the Inner Academy and had
strength that he could borrow, it was natural that he would come and find
trouble with Xiao Yan. Putting it this way, ‘Pan’s Gate’ can be
considered to have been implicated by him.
“Do everything like I have said earlier. From tomorrow on, the members
of ‘Pan’s Gate’ will enter the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’
to train. We need to raise our strength in the shortest amount of
time.” Xiao Yan mused for a moment before raising his head and asking,
“Everyone has sufficient ‘Fire Energy’ in their hands, no?”
“Ke ke, thanks to Chief, the ‘Fire Energy’ which we had obtained
from the Hunting Competition is sufficient for us to train for one month
in the tower.” Atai smiled and nodded his head.
“Yes, that’s good…” Xiao Yan nodded and let out a gentle breath
of air. He softly muttered, “Hopefully, there will not be any other
unexpected troubles occurring. The current ‘Pan’s Gate’ is really
too weak. It really is troublesome for us to establish a foothold in this
