Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-520
Being in a furnace. This was Xiao Yan’s current feeling. Moreover, this
fire was actually rising from his bones. That pain caused Xiao Yan to
inhale a cold breath of air. The multicolored medicinal liquid within the
wooden basin was also bubbling more intensely. Moreover, one could even
use one’s naked eye to see threads of extremely tiny energy swiftly
shuttling through the water before finally charging into Xiao Yan’s
skin. They then disappeared in an instant.
The strength of the energy that was contained within the medicinal liquid
was something that he was still quietly shocked at. Especially now that
he was truly experiencing it for himself, it was indeed worthy of being a
natural spiritual object that had taken such a long time in order to
agglomerate and take shape. This feeling was under the precondition of
having other medicinal items to mediate it. If he were to directly soaked
in it, he would not even know how he died.
As time flowed by, the multicolored bones in his body also strangely
turned a little transparent. Under the observation of Xiao Yan’s mind,
he could faintly see the swiftly rolling marrow within his bones.
The energy that was wildly pouring from the medicinal liquid into his
body did not stop just because the bones in his body were covered with a
multicolored layer. The endless pure energy invaded Xiao Yan’s body in
large amounts. As long as it was something they came into contact with,
regardless of whether it was the bones, the Qi Paths or even the cells
and organs, they would cover all of it with the multicolored layer
without exception. In an instant, the inner view of Xiao Yan’s mind
could only eye the multi colored interior of his body. His heart sighed
sorrowfully. Immediately, he gathered his focus. He clearly knew that an
even more tormenting pain was about to appear.
As Xiao Yan had expected, a searing pain that was more than ten times
worse than before suddenly spread out from his Qi Paths, cells, organs,
and other parts in his body after the multicolored layer had stuck to
over half of them. In an instant, it was as though a fiery flame had been
tossed into Xiao Yan’s entire body. That hot flame appeared to want to
incinerate his body into a pile of ashes. It mercilessly unleashed an
increasingly hotter temperature.
Following this soaring mess in him, Xiao Yan’s entire body, which was
soaking within the wooden basin, had turned into the color of burning
charcoals at this instant. Threads of white fog seeped out from the top
of his head. There was a faint charred smell carried within the white
fog. Xiao Yan clenched his teeth tightly and a thread of bright redness
flowed down from the corner of his mouth, dying his chin until it
appeared quite bloody.
Yao Lao rolled his throat as he stood outside the wooden basin. His hands
were involuntarily clenched. An anxiety flashed across his seemingly calm
eyes. He clearly knew Xiao Yan’s tenacity. However, the latter was
still being turned into this manner by the washing and refining of the
bones despite his toughness. It was difficult to imagine just what kind
of pain it was.
Yao Lao may have known that this washing and refining of bones would
definitely be quite painful, but he was uncertain just what kind of
degree this so-called pain would reach since he had never used the
‘Core Quenching Body Milk’ before. From the looks of Xiao Yan’s
situation now, he understood that he had underestimated the pain from the
washing of one’s marrow. Since things had reached this point, he could
only quietly pray that Xiao Yan would be able to continue enduring. There
was no other choice.
Pain. Other than pain, there was only pain. At this moment, the meaning
that this word represented was being transmitted from every single part
of his body. Other than bitterly suffering, he similarly had not the
slightest solution with regards to this. The only thing that caused him
to be a little gratified was that he could clearly sense waves of
powerful energy being emitted following the spread of the searing,
painful heat within his body. He realized that after the searing heat,
the bone marrow, bones, Qi Paths, cells, muscles, etc., within his body
were gradually having a drastic and complete change. Clearly, this
so-called washing and refining of bones truly possessed a large magical
“Hang in there!”
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth, and viciously roared within his heart. After
suffering in this manner for a long while, Xiao Yan’s spirit suddenly
became a little absent-minded perhaps as a result of being numb to all of
it. Under this absent-minded state, the intense, searing hot pain within
his body greatly diminished. He had barely built up some resistance after
enduring this searing pain for such a long while.
The torment gradually passed under the extremely slow flowing time. In
the end, Xiao Yan completely descended into a kind of half awake and half
asleep absent-minded state. This kind of feeling that was near a state of
being lost had already caused him to forget about the concept of time.
The only thing that he felt was that his bones, veins, cells, etc., were,
little by little, slowly becoming purer and tougher under the grilling of
this searing pain…
Yao Lao placed his hand behind his back as he stood within the mountain
cave. He stood outside the wooden basin without moving. It had been three
days ever since Xiao Yan had entered the wooden basin. Yao Lao had not
taken a single step during these three days. All of his attention was
focused on Xiao Yan.
“Xiu!” A seven-colored glow suddenly flashed into the cave from its
entrance. Finally, it lingered above the wooden basin. The ‘Heaven
Swallowing Python’ eyed Xiao Yan whose entire body was like a burning
charcoal. It involuntarily hissed as it extended and withdrew its tongue.
There was some worry within those snake’s eyes.
“There is no need to worry. He has already endured the most painful
period. The things after this will be a little smoother.” Yao Lao
smiled. His gaze turned to the medicinal liquid within the wooden basin.
He studied the much paler color of the medicinal liquid as he spoke.
The ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ extended and withdrew its snake
tongue, appearing to have understood those words. After which, it swayed
its tail before flashing out of the mountain cave. It wanted to help
protect Xiao Yan in the outside world and prevent anything from
Yao Lao’s gaze once again rested on Xiao Yan’s body after he saw the
‘Heaven Swallowing Python’ leaving. He softly said, “Looks like it
will be soon…”

The searing pain that appeared like a raging fire had unknowingly become
much weaker in Xiao Yan’s body. A long time after, the searing pain
quietly became fainter before disappearing. As the searing pain
disappeared, Xiao Yan’s mind, which was at a loss, suddenly woke up.
His mind hurriedly swept over his body, and he was stunned to realize
that the many colors, which originally covered his body, had completely
disappeared. The bones, veins and other parts in his body emitted a faint
fluorescent glow. At a glance, this manner appeared to have hidden an
endless amount of energy.
Xiao Yan’s mind woke up. It was like a key and the originally silent
inner body immediately began the final circulation for his complete
transformation, much like a precise machine.
A soft muffled sound sounded. Xiao Yan’s mind was somewhat stunned as
he eyed the enormous energy that erupted from every corner of his body
and he was momentarily absent-minded.
During the time that Xiao Yan was absent-minded, numerous amounts of
large pure energy automatically flowed into his Qi Paths. If it was in
the past, Xiao Yan’s veins would definitely have the feeling of a
swelling pain if such a large amount of energy poured in. Now, however,
his Qi Paths merely expanded and shrunk in an extremely tough manner
following the energy pouring in. Absorbing all of the large energy that
came in one wave after another did not cause Xiao Yan to suffer even the
These waves of energy were extremely large, but they was so pure that it
caused one to be surprised. The degree of purity was such that there was
no longer any need to purify it. Moreover, for some unknown reason, this
energy did not have the slightest resistance to Xiao Yan. It was as easy
as waving his hand.
The large energy moved and circulated along the vein route of the
‘Flame Mantra’ within his body. A day later, it became like an
erupting flood that carried a loud rumble as it repeatedly rushed into
the Dou Crystal within the vortex.
Under the pouring in of this large amount of energy, the pigeon egg-sized
Dou Crystal was actually beginning to inflate at a speed visible to the
Xiao Yan’s mind carried some surprise as he eyed the swiftly expanding
Dou Crystal. He could clearly sense that the Dou Qi stored within was
being expended by multiple times. Under this trend, breaking through to a
nine star Da Dou Shi was something as easy as flipping one’s hands.
The energy poured and surged without knowing how to be tired. At a
certain instant, an extremely slight sound finally sounded within his
body. Following the appearance of this clear sound, Xiao Yan realized
that the Dou Crystal, which had already reached its maximum capacity,
once again had an extremely large accommodation space appear within it.
Under this strange sound, the Dou Crystal, which had already reached the
size of a chicken egg, suddenly expanded until it was the size of a fist.
Moreover, a bright intense glow repeatedly surged out. It shined in the
interior of the vortex such that it appeared like daytime.
Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of air as he sensed the various changes
within his body. He clearly knew that he had just broken through the
eight star Da Dou Shi barrier at this instant and truly became a nine
star Da Dou Shi! As long as he advanced by another step, he would be able
to enter the Dou Ling class!
Due to the sudden swelling of the Dou Crystal, Xiao Yan sensed that the
originally filled feeling within it changed to a much emptier one. His
mind moved immediately and he circulated the last pure energy within his
Qi Paths before pouring it into the Dou Crystal. However, after advancing
his level, the Dou Crystal no longer had the bottomless pit feeling it
possessed earlier. The pouring in of this wave of energy was like a rock
sinking into the ocean and did not give Xiao Yan any notable feeling.
“The gap between a Da Dou Shi and a Dou Ling is indeed enormous. Looks
like it is a little impossible to directly break through to the Dou Ling
class in one go.” This thought lingered in Xiao Yan’s heart. He
sighed regretfully, and was just about to stop and withdraw when he
suddenly discover a powerful suction force automatically surging out from
the Dou Crystal. As this suction force erupted, waves of extremely
powerful energy immediately flowed into his body from the outside world.
Since Xiao Yan’s body was within the medicinal liquid containing an
extremely majestic energy, waves of enormous energy moved through his
skin and entered into his body. After which, it ignored Xiao Yan’s
control as it charged through Xiao Yan’s veins. After being circulated
once, it finally rushed into the Dou Crystal in a rude and unreasonable
Xiao Yan was stunned as he eyed what was happening within his body that
had escaped his control. A long while later, he clenched his teeth and
viciously said, “If you want to take the energy in, then take it in
until you are full! If you have the ability, take it in until I break
through to the Dou Ling class!”
Once these words sounded, Xiao Yan’s mind activated the ‘Flame
Mantra’ Qi Method and circulated the energy. Following the circulation
of the Qi Method, the energy that was uncontrollably pouring into his
became even wilder…
