Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-52
After the Qi Method selection, the entire clan seemed much emptier than
usual. The young clansmen who were unable to achieve 7 Duan Qi had been
assigned to various clan businesses outside of the clan home, where they
would learn their respective tricks of the trade. The talented members of
the clan, those who had successfully obtained a Qi Method, started to
immerse themselves in rigorous training, in hopes of learning their Qi
Method skill as fast as possible.
As the burning sun rose high in the sky, rays of heat baked the earth
like an oven. Heat waves bled out of the ground causing ripples in the
air, making the air distorted and blurry.
Within the dense forest atop the mountain bordering the Xiao Clan…
Sunlight trickled through the dense foliage, splattering the leaf-matted
ground with tiny droplets of light –like a sky full of stars.
In the small forest two shadows weaved and crossed about, explosions
rippled the air whenever their palms met. Violent winds gushed forth from
each exchange, rushing through the fallen leaves and tossing them into
Engaging in another fierce flurry of blows, Xiao Yan used both palms to
parry Xun Er’s fair hands and a muffled ‘boom’ sound rang out with
each counter. Though each attack looked light, in actuality whenever one
landed it would instantly turn vicious and powerful.
The corners of Xiao Yan’s mouth twitched as he was hit by a strong
force, strong enough to cause him to stumble back two steps. Xun Er, on
the other hand, was starting to get bruises on her delicate palms because
of all the times she got hit..
Seeing Xiao Yan stumble backwards, a slight smile formed on Xun Er’s
lips as her fair hands slowly danced in the air, her fingers wrapped in a
golden silky glow.
“Tsk tsk, so strong… ” Settling down, the slightly shocked Xiao Yan
inwardly shook his head and directed his eyes at Xun Er, she had a slight
smile on her face. She then licked her lips, emitting a strong battle
He abruptly pushed himself off the ground with the soles of his feet and
dashed forward, specks of mud scattered in his wake.
With a glance at the incoming Xiao Yan, the corners of Xun Er’s dainty
mouth lifted up as the golden glow on her hands intensified.
A small crater was left after Xiao Yan had started rushing forward. He
suddenly stopped a meter away from Xun Er. So perfect was his stop, it
seemed as if Xiao Yan had never moved at all.
Seeing the depth of control Xiao Yan possessed over his movements, Xun
Er’s autumn water eyes couldn’t help but betray a sense of admiration.
As his running figure suddenly came to a halt, his right foot pushed off
the ground causing his body to spin: increasing the force of his attack.
Filled with power his left leg arced through the air, bringing forth an
ear piercing shriek of wind. Fiercely, he angled his blow at Xun Er.
Seeing Xiao Yan’s fierce incoming attack, Xun Er slightly nodded her
exquisite chin in response. her dainty hands formed into a strange
semicircular shield of light that slammed against Xiao Yan’s left leg
A muffled boom resounded from the clash causing the leaves on the ground
to be swept up into the sky, before scattering about.
Leg met fist in a momentary collision and a split second later, the two
figures were pushed back.

The strength of the blow was enough to push Xiao Yan’s body four to
five meters into the air. As his body fell downwards, he angled his right
hand to face a nearby tree and emitted a suction force to negate the
force of the fall. Jumping off a tree branch, he landed steadily onto the
Lifting his head to look at Xun Er who was likewise pushed back a few
steps, Xiao Yan smacked his lips and laughed, asking: “What was that
Dou Technique you used?”
“High level Xuan Dou Technique: Swallow’s Return…… When mastered,
it is able to return the force of an opponent’s attack. I am only at the
beginner’s level, thus I can only return about 10% of the power.” Xun
Er smiled while replying.
Having understood, a thought emerged from within Xiao Yan: “Borrowing a
force to counter another……”
“This Dou Technique that Elder Brother Xiao Yan used is not bad either.
If Xun Er was not a one star Dou Zhe with a power beyond yours, I would
be unable to withstand the strong force from that attack.” Xun Er
smiled, her eyes forming two crescent moons.
Xiao Yan shrugged without commenting, lazily twisting his neck. A high
level fight caused muscle fatigue and mental exhaustion to build up.
Rubbing the sweat that was pouring like water off his face, Xiao Yan
silently cursed the hot and humid weather before he stripped off his
Under the shirt, his young, somewhat tanned and fit physique was
revealed. Even though it was not considered muscular, his small body hid
an explosive power.
Enjoying the half naked Xiao Yan, Xun Er’s beautiful face flushed.
Xiao Yan grabbed his clothes and leaned tiredly against a limestone rock.
Facing Xun Er, he let out a bitter laugh, “Sigh, it’s already been
two months, yet I am still stuck at the 8 Duan Qi……”
Looking at the somewhat helpless Xiao Yan, Xun Er pursed her lips and
giggled. Gracefully sitting down, she joined Xiao Yan and leaned against
the limestone rock. She retrieved the sweat filled clothes from Xiao Yan
before gently drying the sweat off his body. Consoling him, she said,
“The 8th to the 9th Duan Qi is the beginning of Dou Qi bottleneck
stage. Xiao Yan ge-ge should not be impatient. When the time is right,
all that should be, will be……” At this point, Xun Er suddenly
sensed a heated gaze and looking up, she found Xiao Yan staring at her.
Flushing red, she pouted playfully: “Xiao Yan ge-ge……”
The young maiden’s gentle and playful tone was like a refreshing breeze
in the humid jungle.
Because of the hot weather, Xun Er wore a short, light-green apron that
exhibited a lovely patch of white skin below her long, alluring nape. In
addition to that, the developing marshmellows of the young maiden were
revealed by the tight contours of her clothing, causing a sense of beauty
in the youthful body. Faced with such a beautiful scene, it was no wonder
that Xiao Yan felt slightly absent-minded.
Awakened from his stupor by Xun Er, Xiao Yan’s face flushed slightly.
Letting out an embarrassed laugh, he lay on the cooling limestone, slowly
closing his eyes, allowing Xun Er’s pair of tiny hands to gently rub
across his body.
The corners of her rosy lips slightly tipped upwards as Xun Er helped
wipe Xiao Yan’s body. Without turning, she secretly swept a glance
across his body, only to be startled to find that unknowingly, he had
Helplessly shaking her head, Xun Er also understood that today’s high
level fight had caused him to be exhausted. Wrinkling her nose, she put
down the clothes as a soft golden glow started to gather at her
Sneakily taking another glance at the unresponsive Xiao Yan, Xun Er laid
a finger on Xiao Yan’s skin. Golden light followed the path along the
finger and seeped into Xiao Yan’s body……
As golden light was transferred, beads of sweat started to roll down Xun
Er’s forehead and she could be seen slightly gritting her teeth. Just
as she prepared to continue the transfer, a surprised look flashed across
As he was in a deep sleep beside the limestone, an unfathomable sucking
force suddenly originated from within Xiao Yan’s body. Lines of Dou Qi
gathered from the surroundings and started to quickly flow into his
“Oh…… Is it a breakthrough?”
A gasp of shock and awe could be heard as Xun Er’s small mouth formed
into the shape of an O and she quietly watched Xiao Yan as he unknowingly
absorbed Dou Qi.
