Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-519
Xiao Yan eyed a large wooden basin that was placed in front of him within
a spacious and bright mountain cave. The wooden basin was filled with a
transparent and clean water that allowed one to see its base. By the side
of the wooden basin was a simple wooden shelf. Various kinds of medicinal
ingredients were placed on it. At a glance, there was likely over ten
different kinds of medicinal ingredients. Xiao Yan had spent a total of
nearly three days in order to search for these medicinal ingredients.
“Hand the ‘Core Quenching Body Milk’ to me.” Yao Lao extended his
hand toward Xiao Yan and commanded him after he had checked that all the
necessary medicinal ingredients had been gathered.
Xiao Yan hurriedly placed the thing into Yao Lao’s hands when he heard
this. The latter held that jade bottle which was completely filled with
‘Core Quenching Body Milk.’ He weighed it a little before opening the
cap. A faint emerald fog drifted out immediately, before finally
gathering around the opening of the bottle. It did not disappear for a
Yao Lao inhaled a deep breath of this fog, only to sense a faint warm
stream flowing into his spirit. He involuntarily praised, “It is indeed
worthy of being a spiritual object that has gathered the strength of the
land. It is actually this rich and pure. No wonder it possesses such a
unique effect of washing and refining one’s bones.”
Yao Lao tilted the jade bottle slightly after letting out a praise. He
carefully poured ten drops of the emerald-like liquid into the wooden
basin. After these ten drops of emerald liquid left the bottle, the
liquid in the bottle was reduced by nearly a quarter.
Following the ten drops of ‘Core Quenching Body Milk’ being dropped
in, the clear water in the wooden basin immediately began to turn into a
rich emerald-green color at a speed visible to the naked eye. Moreover,
there was a faint fog that gradually seeped out from the surface of the
water. This fog strangely did not disappear for a long time.
Xiao Yan curiously eyed the change of the liquid within the basin. He
rubbed his head and asked in a surprised manner, “Don’t tell me that
I will also need to train in here this time around?”
“Yes.” Yao Lao used his entire focus to eye the change in the color
of the liquid. He carelessly said, “The energy of the ‘Core Quenching
Body Milk’ is far too great. It is impossible for you to directly
consume it orally with just your current strength. Hence, you can only
adopt this method. Moreover, even this manner of using it must be used in
conjunction with other medicinal plants in order to be able to gain the
effect of washing and refining your bones. If you were to forcefully do
this, forget about washing your bones, it is likely that your little life
would be directly washed away first.”
Xiao Yan smiled awkwardly. His body was not that weak, no?
“Hand over the ‘Incense Grass.’” Yao Lao ignored Xiao Yan’s
quiet muttering. Under his observation, the color of the liquid turned
extremely rich. After which, he faintly ordered Xiao Yan to do something.
Xiao Yan swiftly extended his hand to the wooden shelf after hearing
this. He picked up a small incense-like red-colored grass before handing
it over to Yao Lao.
Yao Lao waved his hand while holding this ‘Incense Grass.’ A cluster
of thick white-colored flames formed in his palm. The thick white flames
curled and rose up, much like a cluster of icy flames.
Yao Lao threw this grass into the flames. In merely an instant, the
‘Incense Grass’ swiftly wilted. Finally, it turned into a drop of
red-colored liquid that was boiled by the ‘Bone Chilling Flame.’
Yao Lao used the ‘Bone Chilling Flame’ to refine the red-colored
liquid a couple of times. He flicked his finger and the red-colored
liquid fell into the wooden basin.
Following the entrance of this drop of red-colored liquid, the originally
emerald-colored water’s surface suddenly become a dash of dark-red.
“Green Lotus Fruit.” Yao Lao once again opened his mouth and
commanded indifferently. Xiao Yan hurriedly searched for this fruit-like
medicinal ingredient from the wooden shelf.
After a couple of minutes of refinement, that ‘Green Lotus Fruit’ had
also turned into a drop of green liquid that fell into the wooden basin,
causing an additional pale-green color to appear within the liquid.
“Snake Shedding Flower.”
“Buddha Flame Root.”
The names of different medicinal ingredients were repeatedly emitted from
Yao Lao’s mouth one after another. As his voice was emitted, the
medicinal ingredients on the wooden shelf were swiftly being reduced. An
hour later, dozens of different medicinal ingredients had been completely
turned into various liquids of different colors that were then thrown
into the wooden basin.
Yao Lao sighed in relief after refining the final medicinal ingredient.
His eyes looked at the wooden basin. He nodded in satisfaction after
seeing the gorgeous multicolored liquid surface within. Facing Xiao Yan
beside him, Yao Lao said, “Go and take your clothes off. Enter into it
and train until the color of the liquid once again turns into that of
Xiao Yan’s face was astonished as he eyed the multicolored liquid that
emerged from the dozens of medicinal ingredients’ pure essences. This
kind of technique had no relation to one’s talent. It completely
required the accumulation of experience as well as the understanding of
various kinds of medicinal ingredients in order for one to achieve it.
“Be a little careful after you enter it. Although the effect of this
‘Core Quenching Body Milk’ has become much gentler after being
neutralized by these medicinal ingredients, the energy contained within
it has increased instead of decreased. Therefore, you might feel some
pain while you are training. You will gain a great amount of benefits if
you endure.” Yao Lao clapped his hands and spoke with a smile.
Xiao Yan nodded. He swiftly removed the clothes on his body before
stepping into the wooden basin in a manner that suggested he could not
wait any longer.
As his body broke the multicolored liquid surface, he immediately gave a
violent shiver. The temperature of this water was so cold that it was
frightening. If he did not use Dou Qi to protect his body, his skin would
feel waves of piercing pain from the coldness.
“Do not release your Dou Qi to wrap your body. That will hinder the
medicinal strength from entering it. This water is this ice-cold because
of my ‘Bone Chilling Flame.’ It does not pose any harm to you.” Yao
Lao’s voice suddenly sounded just as Xiao Yan could not resist it any
longer and wanted to use his Dou Qi to resist the cold.
Xiao Yan could only helplessly nod his head when he heard this. He was
able to clearly feel the enormous energy that was contained within the
multicolored liquid as his body soaked within it. Before he had even
entered his training state, the energy that had filled the water began to
uncontrollably enter his body, causing Xiao Yan to feel an itchy feeling
all over it. This was similar to ants clawing his skin.

Xiao Yan violently swung his head. He suppressed the discomfort he felt
on his body. He had suffered quite a lot of hardship during these few
years. Hence, this tingling feeling did not pose much of a hindrance to
him. Xiao Yan sat within the wooden basin. His hands formed the training
seals as he gradually shut his eyes. His breathing suddenly became calm
and long. A long while later, the itchy feeling on his body slowly became
fainter before disappearing. Xiao Yan had entered into his training state.
Yao Lao eyed Xiao Yan, who had entered the training state, from the side
of the wooden basin. He smiled and nodded as he softly said, “Although
there is an extremely great benefit from washing and refining your bones,
there is also quite a bit of suffering during this process. Your path
ahead will be flat if you endure through it. If you fail to endure
through it, not only will all your effort be wasted, but the Qi Paths in
your body might also show some signs of injuries due to the assault by
the enormous energy. In the end, you may end up in a situation where you
lose more than you gain. Although there are some risks, if you do not
take the risk and possess a fearless heart in your training journey, how
will you be able to walk far?”
As Xiao Yan entered his training condition, the multi colored water in
wooden basin was suddenly filled with tiny bubbles. A moment later, the
surging of the bubbles became increasingly intense. That manner was as
though Xiao Yan’s body was in boiling water. However, this boiling
water caused Xiao Yan to feel incomparably icy-cold.
The instant when the bubbles surged, Xiao Yan’s body stilled suddenly.
He was clearly able to sense that the unmeasurable amount of pure energy
within this liquid appeared to have received a suction force as it
followed the slightly opened pores on Xiao Yan’s body. It forcefully
poured into his body!
Xiao Yan felt that his skin had become painfully swollen as the energy
that surged in was far too large. However, this pure energy that swarmed
in did not come to a stop just because of how he felt. Instead, it began
pouring into his body at an even more ferocious speed. As it transversed
into his body, numerous scurry traces were plucking up randomly under his
skin. That appearance was as though many small snakes were hidden under
his skin, appearing extremely frightening.
Xiao Yan naturally could not sense his savage, frightening outer
appearance. He could currently only use all his strength to circulate his
mind and observe the movement within his body.
The multicolored gorgeous energy that swarmed into Xiao Yan’s body did
not obey any of Xiao Yan’s order. Instead, it charged into all the
bones in Xiao Yan’s body in a manner that caused it to seem like it had
a specific target. Any bone that it came into contact with would
instantly turn multicolored. Under this multicolor, Xiao Yan was able to
vaguely sense that there was something entering his bones and doping them.
Xiao Yan did not have any means to stop the actions of this energy.
Therefore, Xiao Yan did not have any other choice other than to simply
watch an increasing amount of his bones turn multicolored.
In less than ten minutes, the bones in Xiao Yan’s body were nearly
completely covered by that multicolored energy. At a glance, every part
was filled with different colors, appearing extremely bizarre.
Xiao Yan’s heart suddenly shook violently as he felt some uncertainty
at the actions of these energy. He could sense that his bones appeared to
have suddenly been incinerated. A deep searing pain swiftly seeped out
from his bones. Finally, the pain spread to every corner of his body.
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth tightly. His body, which was seated
cross-legged within the wooden basin, began to involuntarily tremble
slightly. An unusual sleek redness also surfaced on his skin. His
forehead was filled with cold perspiration. Finally, it began to roll
down his face, like a drizzle, before falling into the wooden basin. Only
then did he understand why Yao Lao said that there would be some pain.
However… was this little pain not a little too much?
The corners of Yao Lao’s eyes were involuntarily lifted as he eyed this
action of Xiao Yan while standing outside the wooden basin. He
immediately let out a soft sigh. In a soft voice, he said, “Little
fellow, you must hang on. If the washing of the bones is a success, you
will be able to save a great amount of trouble when you advance to the
Dou Wang class in the future.”
