Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-523
The Fighting Arena was the most popular area within the Inner Academy.
Usually speaking, the somewhat bloody area of the fighting arena was an
opposing existence to the atmosphere of the academy. However, this Inner
Academy did not shun this kind of conflict. However, it must be said that
the decisions of the Inner Academy was a wise one. The existence of the
Fighting Arena resulted in the Inner Academy students being different
from the students of other academies, who merely knew how to fight on the
surface. Should the students from the latter group fall into a brutal
life and death battle, their feet would tremble.
Due to them being surrounded by the most chaotic region in the continent,
the kind of students that did not have any experience with bloody fights
would likely have the odds against them should they fall into the
‘Black-Corner Region.’ This was something that Jia Nan Academy, who
had quite a number of conflicts with the ‘Black-Corner Region’ every
year, could not be more certain about.
Under the precondition of having rich rewards of ‘Fire Energy’ in the
Fighting Arena, there would be a countless number of students fighting at
that place. Although most people wanted to satisfy their desires and make
a breakthrough from a fight, being able to obtain the additional reward
on top of the increase in fighting experience was something that everyone
was extremely happy to receive.
The Fighting Arena could be described as having as many people as the
mountains and seas. The noise and the various roars from within were
something that one could clearly hear even if one was a hundred meters
The Fighting Arena was crowded, and filled with a countless number of
figures without exception. If one were to take a quick glance, one would
be able to see black masses of human heads. An extremely noisy sound
buzzed by their ears, much like the monstrous noise of a drill, causing
the heads of some of the people who were not used to the sound to feel a
This enormous Fighting Arena had quite a number of fairly large
platforms. However, over half of the human crowd today had swarmed toward
one of the platforms. The forceful ripples that erupted from the violent
collision caused numerous cries and mighty roars to occupy the entire
“Chief, finish him off!”
“Let those bastard new students know just how strong our ‘White
Some students wearing a similar badge on the viewing gallery outside the
battleground eyed their leader in the arena who was at a great advantage
in the battle. Their faces were filled with wild joy as they cried out
loud. On top of shouting out loud, some of them could not resist letting
out a ridicule of laughter toward the large group of people on the other
side of the viewing gallery.
Looking at the human crowd on the viewing gallery on the opposite side,
one could see that the leader was a young lady wearing green clothes. The
young lady was extremely beautiful, but the thing that really caused
people’s heart to be moved was her unique lotus-like demeanor. The
reason why this battleground could attract over half of the audience of
the Fighting Arena was partly because of the appearance and demeanor of
this young lady.
Although they had fallen into a great disadvantage in the battleground,
the green-clothed lady’s quiet face was still calm. However, her
delicate brows contained some anxiety.
Standing behind the green-clothed young lady was a large group of
students wearing a similar badge on their chests. Some fury swarmed onto
their faces when they heard the mockery and ridicule that was transmitted
from the other side. However, due to the situation on their side being
poor, they could only swallow the furious curses that had reached their
“Xun Er, it looks like Wu Hao is no match for Bai Cheng. This fellow is
really too impulsive.” A beautiful lady who was wearing red clothes and
possessed a hot figure was standing beside the green-clothed young lady.
When she saw the human figure fall into a great disadvantage within the
arena, a bitter smile could not help but surface on her somewhat pretty
pale-white face while she spoke to the green-clothed lady by her side.
Xun Er nodded slightly. She slowly tightened her delicate hand. Those
watery pupils were focused on the battleground for a long while before
she softly spoke, “Although Wu Hao recently broke through to a nine
star Da Dou Shi, the gap between both parties is after all too much… if
it really cannot work, I will replace him.”
“You want to personally take action?” Hu Jia was startled when she
heard this. There were very few people who could truly understand Xun
Er’s strength. This was because the young lady in front always showed
that calm and clear manner no matter what situation they were in. It was
as though she had an unlimited number of hidden cards.
“I cannot allow Xiao Yan ge-ge to see ‘Pan’s Gate’ be ridiculed
in such a manner when he returns.” Xun Er smiled slightly. Her gentle
voice, however, carried some indifferent coldness, “I originally wanted
to leave that Bai Cheng for Xiao Yan ge-ge. Now, however… I’m afraid
that I have to be the first one to take care of him.”
These words of Xun Er made it seem as if taking care of Bai Cheng, whose
strength had reached that of a six star Dou Ling, did not require too
much strength. If it was an ordinary person who said this, Hu Jia would
definitely laugh mockingly. However, when she saw Xun Er’s calm manner,
not the slightest doubt formed in her mind. She nodded slightly, turned
around and threw her gaze toward the battle below.
“‘Pan’s Gate?’ The faction which Xiao Yan had established?” A
few human figures were leaning on a rail, within the Fighting Arena, that
had a good view. They eyed the fight below. When they heard a voice, one
of them was involuntarily a little stunned as he spoke.
“Yes. ‘Pan’s Gate’ was a faction that had been established by the
new students initially. Now, after some absorption, there are also quite
a number of older students in there. It is true that their leader is Xiao
Yan.” Long silver-colored hair drifted gently, and its bright color
caused a person’s eyes to feel a little piercing pain. Han Yue glanced
at the somewhat startled Lin Xiuya and the others before speaking.
“Hee hee, this fellow is quite a talent. He has only been in the Inner
Academy for half a year, but he already has such an achievement.” Lin
Xiuya laughed, “However, from the looks of the situation below,
‘Pan’s Gate’ appears to have fallen into a disadvantage. That new
student may have a sharp attack and carries a rare killing aura, but the
gap between him and Bai Cheng is too big. In any case, he is already
quite impressive for being able to force Bai Cheng into scrambling around
by just relying on his strength at the peak of the Da Dou Shi class.”
“I have received some information yesterday. That fellow Liu Qing
appears to have sent someone to make contact with that Bai Cheng.
Originally, Bai Cheng had become a little afraid due to Xiao Yan’s
victory in the pill refining competition with Han Xian. There was no
problem during the earlier period of time. However, just after Liu Qing
sent someone to make contact with Bai Cheng, the latter became this
arrogant. One must say that there are some tricks involved.” At one
side, Yan Hao eyes suddenly glanced to the other side of the Fighting
Arena as he playfully spoke. Although he had a rough outer appearance,
his heart was much more meticulous than other people.
“Xiao Yan also has some conflict with Liu Qing?” Lin Xiuya could not
resist speaking in surprise when he heard this.
“Not exactly. However, there is some conflict between Xiao Yan and Liu
Fei. It is not as though you don’t know about the narrow mindedness of
that woman.” Yan Hao said faintly. His voice appeared to feel reveal
some disdain for Liu Fei.
“Ke ke, there is going to be a good show to watch. Looking at Xiao Yan,
he does not appear to be someone who likes to be bullied. Although his
strength is only that of a Da Dou Shi, even I get a dangerous feeling
when observing him. I think he hides his abilities deep.” Lin Xiuya
laughed softly. His hands held the railing while his gaze randomly
drifted to the spot where Yan Hao had looked at earlier. At that spot,
there was a faint vague human figure standing in the shadows. The faint
sharp domineering aura, however, allowed Lin Xiuya and the others to
recognize who that person was.
Yan Hao also smiled. His smile appeared to possess some anticipation of
the two colliding head on.
Han Yue at the side, however, knit her pretty brows slightly.
Immediately, she let out a helpless sigh as she once again threw her gaze
to the fiery hot fight.
A red and a white human figure rushed around within the battleground in a
lightning-like manner. Finally, they appeared like two falling stars that
suddenly collided in mid-air. Immediately, two powerful Dou Qis erupted
abruptly. Under this powerful force, even the hard ground couldn’t take
it and a crack line formed.
A clear metal sound that carried sparks sounded from the spot where the
two collided. The blood-colored heavy sword and the dark-yellow long
spear collided heavily with one another. A forceful ripple that was
visible to the naked eye surged out explosively. It immediately collided
against the bodies of the two people.
Amidst the deep sound, the footsteps of the two human figures withdrew.
However, the white-colored human figure merely took two steps back before
he steadied his feet. With a soft muffled sound and a shake of his
shoulders, he resolved the force.
Compared to the white-colored human figure, the red-colored human figure
was much more miserable looking. He not only took seven or eight steps
back, but a bright-red blood trace also spilled from the corner of his
mouth when his last footstep fell. His Qi fluctuated disorderly. Clearly,
he had received quite a serious internal injury.
“Chief, great!” When they saw the red-colored human figure be forced
back and spit out blood, the group of members from the ‘White Gang’
on the viewing gallery could not help but erupt into waves of cheers.
Immediately, there was even more ridicule being given to ‘Pan’s
Gate’ on the opposite side, infuriating all the members of ‘Pan’s
Gate’ until their expressions were green.
“Wild and arrogant brat. You actually want to challenge me when you are
just a nine star Da Dou Shi? You are really overconfident.” Bai Cheng
swung his dark-yellow spear, and placed it such that it was tilted
sideways toward the ground. The corner of Bai Cheng’s mouth was lifted
when he heard the thunder-like cheers from the surroundings. He said with
a cold smile, “In the eyes of a truly strong person, your ‘Pan’s
Gate’ is but a clown who merely jumps around. So what if you can earn
‘Fire Energy?’ No matter how much ‘Fire Energy’ you have, you
will merely be a big fat lamb in the eyes of others if you do not have
“Pei!” A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out from Wu Hao’s mouth.
He had a dark and solemn face as his eyes stared at the cold smile of Bai
Cheng with a blood glint. That manner was just like a bloodthirsty,
ferocious beast. Under the focus of this kind of expression, even Bai
Cheng felt a little coldness in his body.
The blood glow flashed in Wu Hao’s eyes. A moment later, he appeared to
have made a certain resolution. His hand rubbed the blood trace from the
corner of his mouth. After which, he slowly drew a line with the fresh
blood on the blood-colored heavy sword. Following the tainting with the
blood, the blood-colored heavy sword had some dark-red color that faintly
appeared. A strange purple-redness also gradually swarmed onto his face.
Bai Cheng frowned slightly when he saw Wu Hao’s strange action. He took
the long spear in his hand and pointed it at Wu Hao from a distance.
Just as Wu Hao was prepared to activate his final trump card to the next
level, a green-colored pretty figure suddenly flashed and appeared in the
battleground in an agile manner. Her perfect white jade-like hand gently
patted his shoulders. Immediately, the wild and violent energy rolling
within Wu Hao’s body quieted down.
“Let me take over.” A soft voice caused Wu Hao to be startled. He
eyed the willow-like delicate waist in front of him. However, he shook
his head and said in a deep voice, “I can handle him!”
Xun Er threw a faint glance to Bai Cheng before immediately turning her
head and knitting her pretty eyebrows as she eyed Wu Hao who was
insistent. Under the calm gaze of the former, Wu Hao was instantly
defeated. He let out a burst of laughter and could only softly say, “Be
“Why? Does the ‘Pan’s Gate’ not have anyone? They actually want
to allow a lady come out? Where is Xiao Yan? Why is it that I don’t see
the slightest trace of him at this moment? Don’t tell me that he is
afraid?” Bai Cheng involuntarily mocked and laughed when he saw that
Xun Er was the one who had flashed into the battleground.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge does not need to act in order to handle you.” Xun Er
softly said. Her manner which acted as though there was no one else
present caused quite a number of people on the viewing gallery to feel
surprise. Just this leisurely aura in the face of a strong opponent
caused some people to increase their adoration for this green-clothed
lady in the battleground by multiple times. However, while they were
exclaiming over this aura of Xun Er, they involuntarily felt some
resentment toward Xiao Yan who had not shown himself. As a man, he
actually let a girl step forward…
“Are all the members of ‘Pan’s Gate’ this arrogant? The batch of
new students this year really has the worst attitude among all those that
have come in these few years.” Bai Cheng could not help but become
furious when he was looked down upon by a lady, especially such a
Xun Er was too lazy to even reply to his words this time around. A
golden-colored glow gradually surged on her delicate hand. The powerful
energy that was contained within it quietly caused quite a number of
people to let out a surprised ‘huh.’
Surprise flashed across Bai Cheng’s face when he saw the golden-colored
glow on Xun Er’s palm. Immediately, he let out a cold laugh. He swung
his long spear, and a rich, powerful dark-yellow Dou Qi shrouded over it.
The golden glow and dark-yellow glow in the battleground grew brighter. A
moment later, both lights flashed at the same time. Finally, they shot
out explosively under the focus of a countless number of gazes.
Instantly, they met in mid-air. However, just as everyone thought that a
ferocious collision would once again erupt, the faint sound of rolling
thunder reverberated faintly within the Fighting Arena.
The instant the thunderous sound appeared, a black-colored afterimage
suddenly appeared between the two clusters of light that were about to
make contact. Both hands extended out in a lightning-like manner before
they pressed themselves on the shoulders of both parties. A gentle force
was the first to swarm out, gently shaking Xun Er until she drifted back
to the edge of the battle circle. Immediately after this, the other hand
which made contact with Bai Cheng suddenly unleashed a ferocious force
that shook the latter until his legs hurriedly withdrew.
The appearance of the black-colored afterimage as well as Xun Er and Bai
Cheng being forcefully shaken back was something that happened in a mere
fraction of a second. Most of the people merely sensed that their sight
had become a little blurry. Immediately, they eyed the two human figures
being forced back with a stunned look.
“Naturally, being wild and arrogant requires the capital to be wild and
arrogant. If Leader Bai Cheng feels that you can no longer simply sit by
and watch, then I, Xiao Yan, can play with you. Won’t fighting with a
lady merely cause you to lose your status.” A faint laugh suddenly
sounded within the arena. Everyone was startled. They hurriedly shifted
their gazes and immediately eyed a black-robed human figure who had
unknowingly appeared in the battleground. Their faces were filled with
The black-colored afterimage in the battleground swiftly became real. The
black-robed human figure raised his head slightly, revealing a delicate
and handsome smiling face. However, anyone could see that there was
ice-cold killing intent under this smile.
“Ha… Now the fun show is about to begin…”
The eyes of Lin Xiuya suddenly brightened as he leaned on the railing in
the corner of the Fighting Arena. His gaze involuntarily turned toward
where the shadows were. The human figure hidden at that place appeared to
have straightened his body at this instant. The sharp overbearing aura
had quietly become more intense.
