Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-482
When Xiao Yan came out of his room the next day, he coincidentally saw Hu
Jia and Wu Hao who had returned. Hu Jia was little different from her
usual self but Wu Hao’s appearance was a little ugly. His face carried
little bruises. Despite carrying many injuries on his face, this fighting
lunatic appears to have an excited and fanatic expression. When Xiao Yan
observed his manner, he saw that there was faintly a little extra
aggressiveness and sharpness to it. Clearly, having muddled along at the
Fighting Arena for these few days had caused this fellow to gain
“Xiao Yan, your level actually advanced?”
When the two of them saw Xiao Yan and sensed his aura that was more
mellow and stronger than a couple of days ago, the both of them
involuntarily asked in surprise.
Xiao Yan nodded. He stopped n the hall and smiled as he asked Wu Hao,
“How is the Fighting Arena?”
“There are many strong people. Moreover, they are the kind of strong
people who were honed in true battles. They are far from what those
people in the Outer Academy, who only know how to train, can compare
with. I was there for four days and fought eight rounds, winning three
and losing five. In the end, I still lost nearly twenty days of ‘Fire
Energy.’” Wu Hao nodded his head. His evaluation of the Fighting
Arena was quite high.
Xiao Yan was slightly shocked when he heard this. Even someone with Wu
Hao’s strength couldn’t maintain a victory rate of fifty percent in the
Fighting Arena. It appeared that there were really as many strong people
as there were clouds within the Fighting Arena. This caused him to form
“If you have the time, you can go to the Fighting Arena to try. That is
a good place to hone oneself.” Wu Hao stuffed a pastry in his hand into
his mouth and said vaguely, “During a period after this, I’m afraid
that I will not often go to the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ to
train. I think that the Fighting Arena is more suitable for me.”
Xiao Yan smiled. He was about to speak when he heard the footsteps behind
him. When he turned around to take a look, he realized that it was Xun Er
who was walking down the stairs.
Xiao Yan smiled at Xun Er. He mused for a moment before speaking,
“Coincidentally everyone is present. I shall inform all of you that I
plan to go into a retreat within the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’
for a period of time. During this period of them, I will need to hand
over the matters within ‘Pan’s Gate’ to the three of you.”

“Retreat?” The three people in the hall were somewhat stunned when
they heard Xiao Yan’s words. It was awhile later before Xun Er asked,
“Until I break through the eight star level.” Xiao Yan replied with a
“Ugh? You have broken through to the seven star for only a short while
and you are thinking of breaking through again? Even with the help of the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower,’ one would not have such a speed
right?” Hu Jia knit her eyebrows and questioned.
“One would indeed not have such a speed in the first or second level.
However, don’t we possess the green Fire Crystal Card? Ke ke, this
thing is sufficient to let us enter into the fifth or even sixth level to
train.” Xiao Yan said as he smiled.
Wu Hao eyes immediately widened when he heard this. He said, “The fifth
or sixth level? Don’t you know that each time you descend the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ by one level, the Heart Flame will
become increasingly powerful and hot? With your strength as a seven star
Da Dou Shi, you would be able to train at the third level at the very
most. The fifth or sixth level would require one to be at least a four
star Dou Ling and above to withstand it.”
Hu Jia by the side also nodded slightly. After getting familiar with the
Inner Academy during this period of time, she also knew some of the
information regarding the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower.’”
“All of you can rest assured that Xiao Yan ge-ge is able to do it.
Haven’t all of you seen the large number of unexpected events that
occur around him?” Upon hearing Xiao Yan’s words, Xun Er’s reaction
was different from Wu Hao and Hu Jia. She merely was a little startled
before she immediately raised her teacup with her delicate hand and took
a shallow sip before speaking in a soft voice. Her understanding of Xiao
Yan was a little greater than the other two. Moreover, she also
understood that given Xiao Yan’s character, it was definitely
impossible for him to do things that he was not confident of.
Xiao Yan nodded with a smile. The him who possessed the ‘Green Lotus
Core Flame’ was able to ignore the vigor of the Heart Flame and the
corrosion of the Fire Poison. From the other students perspective, these
may perhaps be extremely great obstacles in training. However, in front
of him, these things would not even delay his footsteps by half an inch.
Seeing that Xiao Yan had already made up his mind, Wu Hao and Hu Jia
could only nod their heads.
“During the period where I am in retreat, you should all pay a little
more attention to the ‘White Gang.’ That Bai Cheng does not appear to
be a magnanimous person. I think that even with that half a year
agreement, it is likely that he will quietly play some little tricks.”
Xiao Yan furrowed his brows slightly when he mentioned Bai Cheng. That
dark and evil fellow kept causing people to feel uneasy in their hearts.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge, you can be at ease and undertake your retreat. When
you come out, you will see an even stronger ‘Pan’s Gate.’ As for
that Bai Cheng, if he really wants to cause obstruction secretly, he
cannot blame us for not following the rules of the Inner Academy.” Xun
Er nodded and spoke with a faint smile.
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. With Xun Er in charge, Xiao Yan would naturally
be able to completely be at ease. He did not really view a single Bai
Cheng too seriously.
“That’s right. Is there any place in the Inner Academy that one can
obtain various medicinal ingredients or Monster Cores?” Xiao Yan gulped
down the tea in his teacup at once before suddenly asking.
“Medicinal ingredients? Monster Core?”
Xun Er mused for a moment before nodding. She said, “The eastern region
of the Inner Academy is a trading area. There are many different strange
objects being sold there which include many medicinal ingredients. These
things are those that the students of the Inner Academy found by
themselves deep in the mountains. However, you will need ‘Fire
Energy’ if you want to purchase them.”
After remembering the location in his head, Xiao Yan patted his buttock
and bid the three others goodbye before he left the new student residence
area. After which, he walked all the way to the eastern region of the
Inner Academy Xun Er had mentioned. This time around, his retreat would
last for a long time. Moreover, in order to display the best effect
during the training, he also needed to prepare some things.
The size of the Inner Academy was extremely vast. Xiao Yan had to spend a
total of half an hour to get from the new student residence area to the
eastern area of the Inner Academy. However, it was fortunate that this so
called transaction area within the Inner Academy could be considered to
be a popular place. Therefore, there were always people coming and going
along the road that led there such that Xiao Yan did not get lost.
Half an hour later, Xiao Yan paused outside an extremely vast plaza.
There were quite a number of stone tables set up within the plaza. At
these moment, there was a dazzling assortment of various items being
placed on these stone tables. The squeezing crowd was bustling outside
these stone tables. The great popularity of this place caused Xiao Yan to
be a little speechless.
The surrounding noisiness nearly caused Xiao Yan to lose his bearing when
he walked into this enormous trading area. He twisted his body and
squeezed into the human crowd. His gaze repeatedly swept over the items
on those stone tables. As his gaze swept over them, the surprise in his
heart increased. He realized that some of the things that were sold here
were actually not the slightest bit inferior to some of the large cities
in the ‘Black-Corner Region.’ Perhaps it was because the Inner
Academy was itself located deep within the vast mountains, but some of
the rare items among those on the stone tables were things that one would
have difficulty seeing in some of the shops within the ‘Black-Corner
After Xiao Yan felt an astonishment in his heart, he began to search for
the medicinal ingredients which he needed. The things that he needed were
not to refine some high tiered medicinal pill. Hence, it was not too
difficult to find them. After spending one hour to scour for treasures
and spending nearly thirty days of ‘Fire Energy,’ he had nearly
obtained all the medicinal ingredients he needed.
Xiao Yan shook his head helplessly as he eyed the ‘Fire Energy’ on
the green Fire Crystal Card which had greatly shrunk. He originally
thought that over a hundred days of ‘Fire Energy’ was considered
quite good. He did not expect that it could not endure his spending.
After sighing over his spent ‘Fire Energy’ within his heart, Xiao Yan
decided to leave this noisy place. However, his body had just turned when
Yao Lao’s voice suddenly sounded in his heart, “Little fellow. The
eighth stall in front of you. Go over there and take a look.”
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard Yao Lao speaking suddenly. He
immediately turned his head around somewhat uncertainly and threw his
gaze to the eighth stall in front of him. However, he was a little
stunned to realize that the originally squeezing human crowd appeared to
be void from that spot. Some students who had passed through this place
swiftly leaped pass the area like a rabbit.
Xiao Yan carried some doubt within his heart as he lifted his footsteps
and squeezed into the human flow as he walked over to the somewhat
As he approached that area where the human flow was cut, his eyes moved
along the stall and took a glance, only to see that there was a pale grey
clothed man seated cross-legged behind it. His eyes were tightly shut as
he ignored the surrounding human crowd. That manner of his did not appear
to be like someone who had come out to sell things.
“This person… his aura is very strong. I’m afraid that even Bai
Cheng cannot match him. It appears that he is another expert on the
‘Strong Ranking.’ Although his aura is very strong, it is filled with
a kind of fiery and violent hostility. It appears that this fellow’s
temper is not very good.” By relying on his sharp Spiritual Perception,
the aura of the gray robed man was still unable to escape Xiao Yan’s
senses despite the latter having kept it hidden very well. A strange
thought immediately flashed across Xiao Yan’s heart as he sensed the
Xiao Yan’s gaze shifted from the gray-robed man to the stone platform
as he slowly swept over it.
As Xiao Yan’s gaze swept across him, the shock he felt in his heart
become increasingly dense. There were quite a number of Monster Cores of
various elements being displayed on the stone table. Moreover, these
Monster Cores were around rank four. A Magical Beast of such a rank was
sufficient to be a match for an elite Dou Ling. It was really unexpected
that this person had taken out so many of them at once.
Xiao Yan shook his head as he sighed in shock. His continuously moving
gaze suddenly stilled. A low and soft shocked voice sounded in his heart
as his eyes stared at an item in the middle of the stone table.
The thing that attracted Xiao Yan’s gaze was a dry vine that was around
half a foot long. The vine was an emerald green color, much like a good
piece of jade. There were faint natural lines being drawn on it. It was
wound up like a meandering green snake. The strangest thing was that this
dark green dry vine still emitted a strange scent that caused one to feel
refreshed. Looking at this point, one would know that this thing was not
Although Xiao Yan was able to know that this thing should be the rarest
item on the stone table by just looking at its appearance, he was unable
to identify what it was with just his knowledge.
“Green Wood Celestial Vine!” Yao Lao faint laughter contained a joy
that was difficult to hide.
“Green Wood Celestial Vine?”
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. Immediately, his heart shook
and joy quietly swarmed onto his face.
Green Wood Celestial Vine. One of the necessary items to refine the
‘Ground Spirit Pill.’ It was really unexpected that he would be so
lucky to find it here. It must be said that his luck was at its limit!
