Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-518
Queen Medusa coldly watched Yao Lao appear. However, there was not the
slightest surprise on her bewitching face. Instead, she said with a cold
smile, “I have long since sensed that this fellow had a strong person
hidden by his side. So, it was actually a spiritual body.”
Although she spoke in this manner with her mouth, her advancing footsteps
were slowly withdrawn. This old man with an illusionary body in front of
her gave her a faint oppressive feeling. This feeling was not weaker than
the one Yun Shan gave back then. If she was at her peak condition, she
would not fear him. At this moment, however, she needed to constantly
separate some Spiritual Strength to suppress the spirit of the ‘Heaven
Swallowing Python’ in this body. With this split focus, her strength
was somewhat reduced.
Yao Lao smiled indifferently. He waved his hand and got Xiao Yan to step
back a little. Only then did he smile and continue, “I am also clear
about your current condition. Therefore, there is no need to show such a
stern murderous aura in front of me. Although I am currently only in my
spiritual state with a significant loss to my strength, it is likely that
you will not gain any advantage if we were to really fight.”
“Is that so?” Queen Medusa let out a cold laugh. However, she did not
display any other motion with her hands. Clearly, the appearance of Yao
Lao had given her a great shock.
“I, too, don’t wish to have any conflict with you. It is just that it
is not your right to randomly kill my disciple. If you feel that staying
here displeases you, you can leave. No one will stop you.” Yao Lao
smiled as spoke. His calm words similarly held a sharp edge. Back then,
when he roamed the continent, forget about a Dou Zong, even an elite Dou
Zun would have to be polite to him. This Queen Medusa may cause other
people to fear her, but she did not pose the slightest threat to him.
Queen Medusa frowned slightly when she heard this. Currently, the
‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ had the indication of recognizing Xiao Yan
as its master. Moreover, she had not completely obtained control of this
body. It was not up to her to decide whether to leave or not.
Additionally, that medicinal formula for the ‘Thawing Spirit Pill’
was currently in Xiao Yan’s hand. She still needed to rely on his
strength if she wanted that kind of medicinal pill to be refined.
Therefore, why would she leave?
“I have an agreement with him. If I protect him such that he could
safely escape from Yun Shan’s hands, he will refine the ‘Thawing
Spirit Pill’ for me. Now, however, he has already completely forgotten
about that matter after nearly one year. What use is there to keep such a
person, one does not keep his promise, around?” Queen Medusa coldly
glanced at Xiao Yan as she spoke.
The anxiety in Xiao Yan’s heart had been greatly reduced now that Yao
Lao had shown himself. Hence, he merely helplessly spread his hands when
he saw Queen Medusa’s ice-cold gaze. Big sister, did you really think
that I am a fool? Was it not the case of the earlier I refine the
‘Thawing Spirit Pill,’ the faster I die?
“Ke ke, if you did not have any killing intent in your heart, this
disciple of mine would be extremely happy to help you search for
medicinal ingredients. You cannot completely blame him for dragging
things out in this manner.” Yao Lao smiled as he spoke. He naturally
clearly knew about the matter from the beginning until the end.
Queen Medusa snorted. She did not refute what Yao Lao said. Back then,
she did have the thought of killing Xiao Yan with one slap once Xiao Yan
refined the ‘Thawing Spirit Pill.’
“Ke ke, Queen Medusa. I shall not waste my breath with you. Do you
really want to obtain that ‘Thawing Spirit Pill?’” Yao Lao mused
for a moment before he suddenly spoke after seeing the flickering eyes of
“Isn’t this question of yours a little redundant?”
“Since this is the case, we can each give the other party what we need.
However, the precondition is that you must throw away those thoughts in
your heart. No one can be blamed for the matter of the ‘Heaven
Swallowing Python’ following by Xiao Yan’s side. Moreover, even if it
did recognize Xiao Yan as its master, it has nothing to do with you. No
outsiders can do anything to change it.” Yao Lao smiled and continued,
“If you can throw aside the killing intent in your heart, I can
guarantee you that I will place a completely refined ‘Thawing Spirit
Pill’ in front of you within one year. However, in exchange, you must
protect my disciple such that his life will not be in danger for one year
after you have obtained the medicinal pill. What do you say?”
“He and I already have a prior agreement before this. Back then, I
protected him such that he escaped from Yun Shan’s hand. Otherwise, do
you think he could even think of challenging Yun Shan with his strength?
Since I have already completed my agreement, he should help me refine the
‘Thawing Spirit Pill.’ Why should I come into another agreement with
you?” Queen Medusa’s voice faintly contained a thread of anger.
“Both parties violated that agreement back then. Naturally, it is
invalid.” Yao Lao said faintly.
“You want to get me to be a guard for him for a year? Forget it!”
Queen Medusa’s cold voice did not hesitate as she opened her mouth and
rejected the suggestion.
“Since this is the case, you can go and find someone else to refine the
‘Thawing Spirit Pill.’” Yao Lao rolled his eyes as he replied.
“In that case, give the medicinal formula for the ‘Thawing Spirit
Pill’ to me!” Queen Medusa clenched her silver teeth as she coldly
“Ke ke, that won’t do. This ‘Thawing Spirit Pill’ is something
that Xiao Yan obtained after spending great effort to win the Alchemist
Grand Meeting. How can he give it to you?” Yao Lao smiled and shook his
Xiao Yan was a little stunned as he eyed Yao Lao in front of him from
behind. Currently, the latter had a little aura of a thug.
Queen Medusa inhaled a deep breath of air as her expression gradually
became gloomy. Originally, she was someone who did not like to waste her
breath. If it was not because she was afraid of Yao Lao’s strength, it
was likely that she would have attacked and killed him. However, the
stubborness of the current Yao Lao caused a killing intent to once again
surge in her heart.
As Queen Medusa’s expression became gloomy, a majestic Qi that shocked
Xiao Yan slowly surged out from her body. Under this powerful force, the
surrounding air basically ceased flowing at this moment.
Turning everything silent. This was the overbearingness and great
strength of an elite Dou Zong.
However, Yao Lao’s body did not make the slightest movement under the
suppression of this majestic force. Only a cold sharp look gradually
swarmed onto his indifferent old face. An invisible Spiritual Strength
extended out and densely covered half of the sky. Although Yao Lao was
unable to use Dou Qi in his spiritual form, his spirit was unusually
powerful due to him being an alchemist. On top of this, he had the
assistance of the ‘Bone Chilling Flame.’ He had even reached the
state where he could just rely on his Spiritual Strength to fight with
other people. Of course, he would naturally be unable to reach the level
at his peak by just using Spiritual Strength. However, it would not be
too much of a problem when it was used to fight with Queen Medusa, who
was similarly not in her peak condition.
Two similarly powerful forces gradually surged on the top of this
mountain. The ground shook a little between the suppression of these two
forces, and it actually began to gradually form some crack lines under
Xiao Yan shocked gaze.
Following the flow of time, the two forces grew increasingly strong.
However, the instant Queen Medusa could no longer resist attacking, her
face suddenly changed. The tense atmosphere also fell apart at this
moment. Her delicate hand held her forehead as her expression changed
swiftly. A seven-colored glow was repeatedly surging out from within her
“Dammit!” Queen Medusa clenched her teeth with all her strength as
she viciously scolded. The ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ had actually
come out to snatch control of the body at such a time. Moreover, this
time around, it actually resisted so intensely, causing her to have no
choice but to hurriedly agglomerate her strength to suppress it. However,
in this way, how would she be able to fight Yao Lao.
Xiao Yan appeared to have understood something when he saw this condition
of Queen Medusa. He immediately sighed in relief within his heart. This
woman’s strength was a little overly frightening. Even if Yao Lao was
able to defeat her, it was likely that he would descend into a slumber
due to over-exhaustion of his Spiritual Strength. Although Xiao Yan
currently did not rely on Yao Lao as much as he did in the past, Yao
Lao’s rich experience would enable him to save himself from a lot of
trouble no matter how one put it.

The seven-colored glow grew increasingly intense. In the end, even Queen
Medusa’s bewitching eyes became slightly at a loss.
Queen Medusa inhaled a deep breath of air and did her best to suppress
the rebound of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python.’ She coldly eyed Yao
Lao on the opposite side and unwillingly said, “Alright, we will do as
you say. If you are able to give me the ‘Thawing Spirit Pill’ within
one year, I will protect him for one year. If you make empty promises
with me once again, this Queen will let you all suffer heavy losses even
if I risk the retaliation of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python.’”
“Ke ke, it is naturally for the best like this. I will definitely hand
over the ‘Thawing Spirit Pill’ within one year. However, the old me
hopes that Queen Medusa would not be like you are the last time where you
have killing intent in your heart. Otherwise, I will turn the body that
you have great difficulty evolving into into ashes even if I risk falling
into a slumber!” Yao Lao laughed softly. His laugher did indeed contain
an extremely rich threat. After his words sounded, a dense, white-colored
flame surged explosively from his body and immediately wrapped around it
in order to increase his might.
The dense white-colored flame rose slowly. Although the flame was rising
strongly, it ultimately gave a person a kind of strange icy-cold feeling
when one looked at it.
“Heavenly Flame?” Queen Medusa’s face changed a little when she saw
that dense white-colored flame. Her gaze changed quite a lot. Having once
suffered under the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame,’ she naturally clearly
knew just how frightening this kind of flame was. Although this dense
white-colored flame in front of her did not have the heat of the ‘Green
Lotus Core Flame’ on its surface, the kind of strange visual feeling
from it caused Queen Medusa to be afraid of underestimating it.
“As long as the both of you don’t break your promises once again,
this Queen will naturally keep her promise. I hope that I will be able to
see a true ‘Thawing Spirit Pill’ the next time that I wake up.”
Queen Medusa responded indifferently. The seven-colored glow within her
body suddenly erupted. Her body once again moved. A moment later, the
bewitching, enchanting, all-around stunning creature once again
transformed back into that small seven-colored snake that was merely over
a foot long.
The ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ which had transformed back into its
snake’s form shook its tail a little. Its body appeared by Xiao Yan’s
side as fast as lightning. It extended and withdrew its snake’s tongue
at the latter. There appeared to be some human-like concern within those
bewitching snake eyes.
“Ke ke, I am fine.” Xiao Yan rubbed the ‘Heaven Swallowing
Python’ in a tender manner as he spoke with a bitter smile, “Little
fellow, it’s all thanks to you. Otherwise, I’m afraid that a hard
battle would have been unavoidable.”
“However, we have at least said all that needs to be said. In the
future, we will no longer need to worry about whether she will suddenly
come and kill me. Queen Medusa may be cold and heartless, but she is
extremely proud. It is unlikely that she will go back against her
words.” Yao Lao turned around and smiled as he spoke to Xiao Yan.
“Hopefully that will be the case.” Xiao Yan nodded slightly. He
flicked his hand and took out the bottle of true ‘Core Quenching Body
Milk’ once more. He softly said, “Whether I am able to breakthrough
to the Dou Ling class in one go is really up to this thing…”
