Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-478
The invisible flame soared and burned within Xiao Yan’s heart. Threads
of Dou Qi swarmed out unceasingly from the Dou Crystal. After which, they
passed through the refinement of the flame, and once again returned to
the Dou Crystal within the vortex.
Under this perfect cycle, the Dou Crystal, which was originally only the
size of a thumb was already nearing the size of a pigeon egg. Moreover,
the glow that was contained on the surface of it was becoming
This change of the Dou Crystal naturally did not escape Xiao Yan
attention. Since he was in a training state, he was not too certain just
how long he had trained this time around. However, from looking at the
powerful Dou Qi contained within the Dou Crystal, it appeared that he had
already reached the peak of a six star Da Dou Shi. Perhaps he would be
able to truly enter the seven star Da Dou Shi level very soon!
The Heart Flame rose endlessly near his heart, providing Xiao Yan with
inexhaustible refining energy. All the cycles currently in Xiao Yan’s
body were basically in a sort of an automatic process after having
circulated for a long time. The Dou Qi did not require the control of
Xiao Yan’s mind as it swarmed out of the Dou Crystal by itself,
followed the path of the cycle, passed through the flame, and finally
returned to the Dou Crystal once again.
Xiao Yan was naturally not foolish enough to break this kind of automatic
training condition that was relatively difficult to come across. He
simply quietly watched the increasingly bright glow of the Dou Crystal by
There was no concept of time when it came to training. When Xiao Yan’s
somewhat chaotic mind was once again woken up by a strange fluctuation,
he was surprised to realize that the rhombus Dou Crystal within the
vortex was actually like a star, repeatedly pulsating with a unique glow.
This sudden action of the Dou Crystal caused Xiao Yan to feel surprise
for awhile before he understood with great joy that the chance for
advancement had actually arrived!
Xiao Yan forcefully suppressed the wild joy that had rose within his
heart. He did not issue any order to the Dou Crystal, but merely adopted
the attitude of an observer as he carefully watched its actions.
The rhombus-shaped Dou Crystal was suspended within the vortex. Suddenly,
a suction force seeped out from within it. Following the appearance of
this suction force, Xiao Yan could sense that the powerful Dou Qi, which
was still flowing through the Qi Paths in his body, appeared to have
received a dragging force. It began to turn into a turbulent flood water
as it carried a muted bang and swiftly swarmed into the vortex located in
his lower abdomen.
At this moment, not only was the interior of Xiao Yan’s body
experiencing a change but a large movement had also appeared on the
exterior of his body. The moment the Dou Crystal emitted a suction force,
the energy that was spread all over Xiao Yan’s body involuntarily
swiftly fluctuated. A moment later, waves of heated energy began to
wildly pour into Xiao Yan at the middle!
The energy in the training room far exceeded the outside world. Hence,
when the energy was pouring in, the people around could even see a
partially visible energy swirl being swiftly formed with Xiao Yan at the
The remaining four students within the training room were also awakened
from their training condition due to the shock from the sudden movement.
They were startled when their gazes saw the energy swirl over the surface
of Xiao Yan’s body. Immediately, their faces were filled with envy.
Clearly, they knew what this movement meant.
“This fellow has trained without eating or sleeping for nearly four
days. He really is an abnormal being…” A student eyed Xiao Yan who
was wildly absorbing the surrounding energy and involuntarily whispered.
Since Xiao Yan arrived at this training place four days ago, he had not
made even the slightest movement. During these four days, the other four
students had all left to rest a couple of times before returning to the
tower to train. Xiao Yan, on the other hand, had continued training until
this day under their astonished eyes. If it were not for Xiao Yan’s
calm breathing, it was likely that they would have already reported it to
the instructor within the tower.
“I have inquired around today. This fellow is the leader of the new
students this year. He is called Xiao Yan and is very strong. Rumor has
it that even Fu Ao from the ‘White Gang’ was defeated by him.” A
lady with a somewhat tender and lovely appearance stared at Xiao Yan’s
face and carefully informed the rest.
“He is Xiao Yan? Hei, originally I did not really believe the rumors
about him. However, now that I have seen him, it looks like they are
true.” A surprise immediately swarmed onto the faces of the other three
students when they heard this. Clearly, they did not find Xiao Yan’s
name unfamiliar despite them not having joined any faction.
“Shh, be a little quieter. If we are to accidentally interrupt his
advancement, we will be in trouble…” That lady placed a finger on her
lips as she softly chastised.
“Yes.” The remaining three nodded slightly. They similarly understood
just what kind of fury a person would have should their advancement be
The Dou Crystal in Xiao Yan’s vortex repeatedly released a suction
force. The Dou Qi within his Qi Paths had been completely withdrawn. The
Dou Qi that endlessly swarmed into his body from outside was not
immediately absorbed into the Dou Crystal like the Dou Qi in his body.
Instead, it was controlled such that it passed through that invisible
flame within his body, undergoing a refinement. After which, it once
again followed the Qi Paths in his body and completed a cycle before it
entered into the Dou Crystal under the observation of Xiao Yan’s
Although no one controlled the actions of the Dou Crystal, the latter
completed this absorption, circulation, refinement and other steps
without any mistake. Its control over the strength of the flame was
perfect. Xiao Yan would likely be unable to achieve such a level of
control if he controlled it himself.
Xiao Yan’s action of totally washing his hands off and not bothering
about anything appeared to have coincidentally allowed him to obtain a
As time flowed by, the suction force that was emitted from within the Dou
Crystal grew increasingly powerful. The energy that poured into his body
from the outside world also grew increasingly swift. If it were not
because of the special terrain at this place and that the invisible flame
could unceasingly appear, perhaps even the flame which refined the energy
would cease working because of exhaustion of its energy.
Once the invisible flame disappeared, this refinement step would
automatically disappear. At that time, Xiao Yan might have to personally
take the helm. Otherwise, if he allowed the mottled energies to enter
into his Dou Crystal, it was likely that he would not only have no hope
to advance, but it would also cause him damage that would be difficult to
All the activities in the interior of Xiao Yan’s body and the outside
world were being orderly carried out under the command of his Dou
Crystal. This advancement was undoubtedly the easiest one Xiao Yan had
experienced. By borrowing the effect of the invisible flame, Xiao Yan had
successfully become a leader who abandoned his duty for once.
When the suction force in the Dou Crystal had been emitted for around
twenty minutes, it finally began to weaken. As the suction force
weakened, the energy swirl that Xiao Yan had created also slowly became
weaker and finally completely disappeared.
The final thread of somewhat mottled energy passed through the invisible
flame. Its body, which had shrunk by nearly ten times, was finally
carried and circulated in a complete cycle through the Qi Paths before
entering the Dou Crystal within the vortex…
As the final threads of Dou Qi poured in, the somewhat trembling Dou
Crystal suddenly stilled. The glow which it emitted suddenly surged.
Bright intense light shone on every single spot within his body. Under
the shine of this strange powerful light, Xiao Yan could vaguely feel his
Qi Paths, bones, and even cells emitting an inaudible relaxed sigh…
The strange powerful light continued for merely ten seconds before it
slowly withdrew. A moment later, the light grew increasingly dim until it
The moment the powerful glow disappeared, the Dou Crystal which was
hidden within it appeared!
When the Dou Crystal appeared, it let out a slight tremble. A thread of
powerful Dou Qi swarmed out. Finally, it was entrenched into his Qi Paths
like a green-colored torrent. It swiftly channeled past, giving Xiao Yan
repeated feelings of being filled with energy!
Xiao Yan’s mind studied the rhombus-shaped Dou Crystal, which was
nearly two to three circular layers larger than before. He sensed the Dou
Qi reserve was more than twice what it was before. Xiao Yan could not
help but let out a long sigh of relief. At least this tough training of
his was not wasted…
As Xiao Yan’s tensed heart slowly relaxed, he was gradually unable to
maintain his training condition. His spirit was a little too giddy and he
immediately withdrew from his training condition…
Xiao Yan slowly opened his eyes within the spacious training room. A
faint green-colored glow flashed across his dark black eyes. He lifted
his head slightly and swept it toward the other four people in the room.
When they saw him sweep his gaze over, the remaining four people
hurriedly turned their gazes away. At this moment, Xiao Yan had just
completed his advancement and the force all over his body had reached its
peak. How could they, as people who had just advanced to the Da Dou Shi
class, contend with him?
Xiao Yan did not bother with the four people. He released a long turbid
breath. His dark black eyes immediately became even deeper and more
Xiao Yan twisted his body and adjusted himself quietly before he withdrew
the green Fire Crystal Card in front of him. He randomly glanced at it
with his pupils and was stunned to realize that eight days of ‘Fire
Energy’ had been deducted…
“How long have I trained for?” Xiao Yan frowned, turned his head and
asked a student.
“Four days…” Seeing that Xiao Yan had voiced a question, that
student hurriedly replied honestly.
“I actually trained for four days… no wonder…” Xiao Yan muttered
helplessly. However, he rejoiced slightly within his heart. He had merely
trained for four days, yet he had actually broken through to the seven
star level. If it was in the outside world, this was impossible without
one or two months.
“This ‘Fallen Heart Flame’… does indeed have unceasing wonders…
its split body that shoots into people’s hearts can actually cause a
person to raise their training speed to such an extent. If one possessed
its actual body, just how frightening will one’s training speed be?”
Xiao Yan praised once before he stood up. He directly walked out of the
training room. After training for four days without rest or sleep, he
needed to temporarily rest for awhile. Although working hard when
training was good, Xiao Yan also knew that one would not be able to
achieve anything if one overdid things…
