Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-506
The thick, dark clouds piled layer upon layer and blanketed the entire
sky. Occasionally, there would be flashes of lightning around ten feet
long winding through the dark clouds, much like a giant silver-colored
python. It would tear through the sky, and its eye-piercing intense glow
would cover the entire mountain range under the brilliant might of the
Heavens. Under this kind of extremely wild environment, even the
indigenous Magical Beasts of the deep mountains did not dare to
carelessly appear. All of them shrunk within their caves. There were some
faint low roars that followed this wind as it spread throughout the
A small tree was uprooted, without reason, not far from Xiao Yan’s
body. After which, it was heavily thrown down the mountain peak. There
was not the slightest sound being transmitted from below even after a
Xiao Yan sat cross-legged on a green rock. His hands were tightly holding
the silver-colored scroll. Under this kind of terrible weather where
lightning occurred simultaneously, this scroll, which usually appeared
old and ordinary, gradually emitted a faint warmth. Occasionally, Xiao
Yan would even be able to see threads of extremely small silver-colored
lightning flickering from within when his gaze glanced over it.
Xiao Yan lifted his head. He eyed the sky covered by dark clouds and
lightning. He exhaled a long breath of air as he supported his right hand
on his thigh. He could sense the slight tremble of his hand. In this kind
of weather and environment where extremely frightening lightning could
come smashing down at any moment, his heart was clearly not as calm as
what he displayed on the surface.
“Teacher, when should I begin?” Xiao Yan held the silver-colored
scroll in his hand. At this moment, the four ancient words, ‘Three
Thousand Lightning Movement,’ on the scroll appeared to want to leap
out of it, repeatedly releasing a faint silver crackle.
“You can begin. Be careful. This wind-lightning strength is not as
terrifying as that of the ‘Heavenly Flame,’ but it is also extremely
overbearing. If you are not cautious, your life might be in danger.”
Yao Lao’s serious voice sounded within Xiao Yan’s heart.
“Yes.” Xiao Yan nodded slightly. In his heart, he clearly knew that
if he wanted to obtain strength, it would naturally be impossible for
everything to be smooth. Although he had obtained the ‘Flame Mantra,’
a kind of mysterious Qi Method that could swallow a ‘Heavenly Flame’
after meeting Yao Lao back then, he would need to use his life to gamble
time and time again during the evolution of the Qi Method. Therefore,
these dangers no longer scared him.
He believed that since that frightening ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ did
not burn him to death, this current wind-lightning was insufficient to
cause Xiao Yan to withdraw midway even though it was extremely
“Open the scroll and place it on your legs. During this time, the force
of the wind-lightning is the strongest. You need not direct it. The
thread of wind-lightning hidden within the scroll will automatically
surge out. At that time, you will grab it when it flashes out. After
which, all you need to do is absorb it into your body and refine it.”
Yao Lao spoke of all the refining steps in one go.
Xiao Yan repeated it once in his heart. After realizing that nothing was
lacking, he finally nodded heavily. Both his hands held the scroll and
pulled open the surface of the scroll, where a special medicinal water
with some sealing properties had been pasted on it in a sudden manner.
As the scroll was opened, an eye-piercing strong silver glow shot out
explosively and abruptly. Immediately, it turned into a large rough
silver-colored lightning energy pilliar that shot into the thick dark
layer of clouds. The powerful light pillar made it such that one could
still clearly see the area over fifty kilometers away.
The strange action that suddenly erupted from the scroll caused Xiao Yan
to be greatly shocked. His expression also paled. However, it was
fortunate that the lightning pillar did not last for long before it
swiftly shrank back from the dark clouds with a ‘chi’ sound. Finally,
it once again returned completely into the scroll.
Seeing that the scroll had returned to normal, Xiao Yan finally quietly
sighed in relief. He rubbed some cold perspiration on his forehead. This
place was not too far from the ‘Black-Corner Region.’ If he was to
alarm someone, it was likely that some unexpected and undesirable
situation would occur again. Xiao Yan clearly understood the degree of
greediness of those fellows within the ‘Black-Corner Region.’ Of
course, the thing which caused Xiao Yan’s inner heart to feel somewhat
guilty was that this scroll of Agility Dou Skill had a shady origin.
After having done the act of blocking the path and snatching the treasure
in the ‘Black-Corner Region,’ Xiao Yan clearly knew that he and the
‘Blood Sect’ had already quietly reached a point beyond
Xiao Yan did not believe that the father would easily let him off after
he had killed his son. Currently, that leader of the ‘Blood Sect’ was
still unaware that he was the secret murderer. Otherwise, it was likely
that the fellow would forcefully ferret him out and kill him, even if he
was a student within the Jia Nan Academy.
Xiao Yan withdrew his thoughts as his gaze turned to the scroll that was
placed in front of him, only to be slightly startled. Perhaps it was due
to that unusual acton earlier, but the silver-colored scroll was
currently already wrapped in a faint silver-colored glow. The surface of
the glow had a vague, strange shape materializing. However, if one were
to carefully look at it, one would have no clue as to what it was.
When he recalled Yao Lao’s instructions earlier within his heart, Xiao
Yan inhaled a deep breath of air, and began to sink his mind within his
body and calm his heart. His Spiritual Strength broke from his body and
firmly covered this green rock. Even a sand particle falling within this
region would not be able to escape Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Perception.
Not long after Xiao Yan entered a focused condition, the silver-colored
glow on the scroll became increasingly stronger with the flashing
lightning in the sky. In the end, the scroll actually slowly floated,
reaching Xiao Yan’s chest level before it came to a stop.
As the silver-colored glow became increasingly intense, the picture that
was vaguely visible on the surface also became increasingly clear. When
one looked at it in this state, it was actually like numerous human
figures in various kinds of running form. Although the stances were
different, their legs were all covered by silver-colored, lightning-like,
tiny, electric pythons. The glow moved slightly, causing the human figure
to appear like it was alive. With a slight fluctuation of the air, the
numerous energy human figures broke through the restraints of the glow
and rushed directly toward the distant sky.
The speed of the illusionary human figures was so fast that it was
frightening. It was as though it totally ignored the distance in space.
In a mere instant, these human figures charged out from within the area
covered by Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Perception.
Although Xiao Yan had long since entered a focused condition and had
sensed those energy human figures the instant that they rushed out from
the glow, him having the ability to stop it was altogether another matter
from having sensed it. The moment the Dou Qi in Xiao Yan’s body spurt
out from his palm, those energy human figures had already rushed out of
his attacking radius. Xiao Yan’s face was immediately filled with some
Just as Xiao Yan was feeling shocked and upset, Yao Lao’s familiar
voice suddenly sounded. There was a powerful Spiritual Strength contained
within this old voice. Moreover, the wind would even come to a sudden
stop in all the regions where the voice passed.
The wild wind became still. Those energy human figures which were about
to charge into the sky also became still. In an instant, these energy
human figures were stagnant in mid-air while forming various different
kinds of strange posture.
“Return!” Yao Lao’s low and deep voice sounded once again. The
powerful Spiritual Strength which basically completely covered this
entire mountain peak rushed back ferociously. Following the shrinking
back of the Spiritual Strength, those human figures appeared to have
received an extremely powerful pulling force as they were thrown and sent
flying until all of them were poured into Xiao Yan’s head.
Xiao Yan’s heart was still shocked at that overly frightening Spiritual
Strength of Yao Lao when his wide awake mind shook. Immediately, a
giddiness surged. He could see some of the extremely strange human
figures flashing images in a vague manner. However, he did not remember
much of them in his dazed state.
His drowsiness merely lasted for a while before the human figure images
that surfaced in his mind also gradually disappeared.
Xiao Yan gradually woke up from his drowsiness. Lightning was still
flashing in the sky. The dark-black, dense clouds appeared to be
suppressing one’s heart, causing one to have some difficulty breathing.
“Teacher’s Spiritual Strength is really powerful. If we were to just
discuss about Spiritual Strength, it was likely that there aren’t many
people on this Dou Qi continent who could compare with him. No wonder he
was able to contend with an elite Dou Zong with just this Spiritual
Strength.” Xiao Yan once again recalled the Spiritual Strength, which
had basically caused space to become stagnant earlier, and an
astonishment involuntarily flashed across his mind.

“Stop having random thoughts. The wind-lightning has already moved
along with those images and entered your body. Hurry up and refine
them!” Yao Lao’s low cry suddenly sounded in Xiao Yan’s heart.
Yao Lao’s cry had just sounded when Xiao Yan’s body suddenly became
still. His face was flushed purple-red. A thread of tiny lightning that
had been shrunk countless times actually flashed across his eyes.
Xiao Yan’s hands swiftly formed the training seal. He was so proficient
at forming it that it was ingrained in his bones. His mind entered his
body in a lightning-like manner. Following the entrance of his mind into
his body, the Dou Crystal within the vortex in his body also swiftly
trembled. A powerful green-colored Dou Qi erupted out. A turbulent flow
that was like a flood water flowed into his numerous Qi Paths. Finally it
turned into a capsule-like form that surrounded a thread of
silver-colored obscure energy at an intersection of veins.
Since Yao Lao had reminded him in time, the various wind-lightning
strengths that were secretly hiding within his body were surrounded by
Xiao Yan before they could form any powerful destructive force. Xiao Yan
could not help but feel fortunate when he saw the increasingly stronger
fluctuations that were spread out from the areas where those threads of
silver-colored energy lingered.
The obscure silver-colored energy repeatedly twisted and let out a
strange unceasing hissing sound, much like an entrenched enormous python.
Under the strange sound emitted by the silver-colored energy, Xiao Yan
was somewhat surprised to discover that the Dou Qi that surrounded the
former had actually begun to tremble faintly. That manner seemed to have
some fear. At one glance, it was like a large group of sheep surrounding
an incomparably vicious, enormous python, fearing that the other party
would retaliate and cause its death at all times.
Those threads of obscure silver-colored energy also appeared to have
sensed the trembling of the surrounding Dou Qi. In an instant, they
suddenly surged. Wherever the powerful silver glow passed by, the
green-colored Dou Qi would hurriedly shrink back. Upon seeing this
dodging action of the Dou Qi, the hissing sound within the silver glow
also became increasingly intense. It was as though the silver glow was
laughing arrogantly. This kind of human-like reaction caused Xiao Yan to
be greatly shocked.
However, on top of being shocked, Xiao Yan also had a faint cold smile. A
thread of wind-lightning was actually this arrogant?
A low snort sounded within his body. Following this snort, the Dou Qi
that surrounded the silver-colored energy suddenly fluctuated intensely.
Immediately, the Dou Qi became slightly distorted and wisps of
green-colored flame quietly spread out from within it.
Following the appearance of the green-colored flame, the silver-colored
energy appeared to have received a shock. Its bright glow swiftly shrank
Faced with the withdrawal of the silver-colored energy, the green fire
Dou Qi appeared to have turned from a sheep into a ferocious and hungry
wolf in this instant. It closed in hard, one step at a time, preparing to
eagerly leap powerfully forward at any time!
