Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-524
The black-robed, young man who had suddenly appeared caused the noisy
fighting arena to descend into an extremely brief silence. Upon hearing
the words that were emitted from his mouth, everyone immediately
understood just who the person who had come was. Immediately, the members
of ‘Pan’s Gate’ erupted into a thunder-like cheer. The remaining
audience also carried some excitement as they weighed Xiao Yan. Their
gazes had some anticipation. Xiao Yan’s alchemist skills were well
known after his competition with Han Xian. However, having outstanding
medicinal refining skills did not represent his fighting strength. In
this place which was filled with violence, only the hardest fist could
cause others to feel a deep respect in their hearts. All the other things
like status were totally useless.
Therefore, upon Xiao Yan’s appearance, everyone wanted to see whether
this young man, who had outstanding pill refining skills, would have a
fighting ability that was sufficient enough to cause others to view him
The instant when Xun Er was shaken back, she had sensed a familiar
strength. The powerful golden light agglomerated on her hands gradually
disappeared as she allowed that gentle force to send her out of the
battle circle. Her pretty eyes studied the tall figure in the
battleground. Only then did she quietly calm down her raised heart.
“Xiao Yan ge-ge, the time that remains belongs to you.”
“Hei, Xiao Yan, you are finally willing to appear?” Bai Cheng shook
his shoulders as his feet violently stepped on the ground before
resolving that force. Finally, he raised his head and eyed the
black-robed, young man, and involuntarily let out a cold laugh.
Xiao Yan glanced at him. As his hand rolled, the enormous Heavy Xuan
Ruler appeared. His right hand tightly held the ruler’s hilt and waved
it viciously. Immediately, a powerful wind that carried a humming sound
appeared in the arena: “Looks like Senio Bai Cheng really missed me.
Unfortunately, Senior Bai Cheng is not a female. Otherwise, I would be
The people in the surrounding viewing gallery could not help but erupt
with laughter when they heard Xiao Yan’s joking voice.
The corner of Bai Cheng’s eyes twitched as he coldly said, “A razor
sharp tongue. This time around, I want to see just what excuse you will
find to extract yourself and flee.”
“There is no need to find any excuses. Wu Hao issued a challenge letter
to you and I will accept it. I have waited for this day for a long time.
Let’s settle all the scores from the past.” Xiao Yan let out a soft
laugh. His heavy ruler landed heavily on the hard ground. The forceful
weight caused some tiny crack lines to form on the ground. Finally, Xiao
Yan raised his head and smiled as he replied to Bai Cheng.
“Ha ha, good. You got guts. However, since you are seeking to embarrass
yourself today, don’t blame me for using all my strength.” A joy
immediately surfaced on Bai Cheng’s face. He laughed out loud when he
saw that Xiao Yan did not try to flee this time around, and instead took
the initiative to accept the fight.
“Senior Bai Cheng, you still say as much nonsense as you usually do.”
Xiao Yan laughed. His face may have appeared harmonious, but the words
that he spat out caused Bai Cheng’s face to become increasingly gloomy.
“Hopefully, this mouth of yours will not end up begging for mercy
later.” Bai Cheng finally ceased speaking after those dark and gloomy
words. He held the dark-yellow long spear tightly in his hand. The body
of the spear shook slightly and the rich yellow-colored Dou Qi surged out
explosively from within his body. In an instant, it wrapped the body of
the spear within it.
“Ground affinity Dou Qi huh…” Xiao Yan lifted his eyebrows when he
saw the color of Bai Cheng’s Dou Qi. Dou Qi of this affinity
specialized in being sturdy and long lasting. Compared to people of the
same level, the time which one could fight would be much longer.
Moreover, this kind of Dou Qi focused on defense. When fighting with
others, one could rely on the richness of one’s long lasting Dou Qi to
drag it out until the opponent would become too tired. When fighting with
a person of this Dou Qi affinity, erupting a wild and violent strength
within a short period of time to perform suppressing attacks was the most
Xiao Yan twisted his body slightly. Powerful green-colored Dou Qi surged
out from his body. Following the surfacing of the Dou Qi, a powerful aura
also began spreading out of his body. Quite a number of people were
stunned as they sensed the degree of strength of this aura.
Xun Er, Hu Jia, and Wu Hao in the viewing gallery exchanged looks with
one another. Their eyes revealed some surprise and joy. It was unexpected
that Xiao Yan had actually broken through to the Dou Ling class after
having not seen him for two months. One level per month. This training
speed was something that undergoing a training retreat within the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ all day would not be able to catch up
“This fellow… he actually reached the Dou Ling class after less than
half a month?” Lin Xiuya and the others displayed faces that were
similarly filled with surprise. Back then, when they had met Xiao Yan in
the deep mountains, the latter’s strength was at the very most around
that of a eight or nine star Da Dou Shi. Although a person of this class
was already not very far from the Dou Ling class, they, who had
personally experienced this step, clearly knew just what kind of tough
accumulation one must undertake in order to break through the barrier
between a Da Dou Shi and a Dou Ling. Therefore, they could not help but
feel stunned when they saw the degree of power of Xiao Yan’s Qi.
“No wonder he faced Bai Cheng this time around. It is because he has
advanced his strength, but even if that is the case, there is still a six
star gap between Bai Cheng and him. This is not something that one can
easily make up for.” Yan Hao also smiled and spoke on top of being

“I believe that he can win.” A smile surfaced on the cold face of Han
Yue by the side. Back then, when Xiao Yan was merely a five or six star
Da Dou Shi, he was already able to cause even a three star Dou Ling to
feel great fear. Now that his strength had soared and advanced into the
Dou Ling class, Han Yue still possessed quite a great amount of
confidence despite the fact that Bai Cheng was six levels stronger.
“I also have some confidence in him. I wonder what that fellow
thinking?” Lin Xiuya lazily stretched his waist. His gaze was thrown
toward the faint human figure in the dark area while he smiled and spoke.
The moment when the viewing gallery was boiling because of the Qi that
Xiao Yan had displayed, Bai Cheng was also startled. An astonishment drew
past his eyes. It was a long while later before an additional seriousness
gradually appeared on his face. He coldly said, “No wonder you are even
more arrogant this time around. It is actually because your strength has
Xiao Yan’s body trembled slightly. The clear sound of his bones
colliding reverberated unceasingly, just like firecrackers within his
body. Xiao Yan exhaled a long breath after this continued for a while. He
smiled slightly as he sensed the enormous strength that filled his
muscles and bones. While raising his head to eye Bai Cheng, his hand
suddenly tightened its grip on the ruler’s hilt. His feet slowly took a
few steps forward as the heavy ruler in his hand was dragged on the
ground, emitting a ‘sha sha’ sound. At the same time, it also brought
about a white-colored trace on the hard ground.
Bai Cheng coldly watched Xiao Yan as the latter gradually approached. He
sensed that increasingly strong Qi and his hand tightened his grip on the
yellow-colored long spear slightly. His eyes stared intently at Xiao
Yan’s steps. Just as Xiao Yan had stepped into a radius of around ten
meters from Bai Cheng’s body, a low cry was emitted from the latter’s
mouth. Powerful dark-yellow Dou Qi, that was like thick yellow water,
surged out from his body.
Bai Cheng’s feet heavily stepped on the ground. His body transformed
into a yellow shadow. Dou Qi swiftly agglomerated at the tip of his
spear. Borrowing the charging force, his body was stacked with the body
of the spear. Under the cover of the Dou Qi, his body and the long spear
had basically merged together. The long spear cut through the air and the
‘chi chi’ sound it made was quite loud.
The charging strength of a strong six star Dou Ling would have a strength
that could shatter an enormous rock on the spot. Xiao Yan did not meet
Bai Cheng’s ferocious opening attack head-on. A faint silver-colored
glow was partially visible on his feet. As his body swayed, it strangely
disappeared from his original spot.
Bai Cheng’s expression changed slightly after having lost his target.
This speed was such that he could only see a thread of a black line
flashing past. Alarm immediately flashed across his heart. In the past,
Xiao Yan definitely did not possess such speed. It was impossible for his
speed to be raised to such a degree even if he had advanced his strength.
As this thought flashed across his heart in a lightning-like manner, the
long spear in Bai Cheng’s hand suddenly changed directions and pierced
explosively toward his back.
A clear sound that carried some sparks shot out from within the arena.
The long spear which Bai Cheng used to pierce behind him blocked the
enormous black ruler. The powerful force contained on the black ruler
pressed the long spear until it bent slightly.
“The physical strength of this fellow has also soared greatly. Just
what is happening? Even if he advanced his level, there should not be
such a great increase. Now, regardless of whether it is in terms of
strength, speed, or reaction speed, this fellow appears to have
completely transformed from his previous self.” Bai Cheng’s face
immediately revealed some changes as he sensed the strength that was
being transmitted from the long spear. His heart also appeared to have
monstrous wild waves rolling within it.
Xiao Yan was naturally not bothered by the shock in Bai Cheng’s heart.
The heavy ruler in his hand carried an extremely suppressive rushing wind
sound as it violently hacked down at Bai Cheng’s arm. The originally
extremely heavy ruler danced even more lively and trickily in his hand
than the long spear in Bai Cheng’s hand. Under this powerful and
violent sweeping movement, even Bai Cheng had appeared a little hectic
due to him being unable to react in time.
However, Bai Cheng was, after all, a strong six star Dou Ling, and had
gradually become steady under Xiao Yan’s extremely heavy attacks. The
powerful Dou Qi of a six star Dou Ling swarmed out in a mighty manner and
received Xiao Yan’s attack that contained an extremely great weight.
Following his familiarity, Bai Cheng also began to retaliate intensely.
The long spear waved and danced. It was just like a poisonous snake that
was hidden under the yellow sand. It was tricky and vicious and each time
it pierced toward Xiao Yan, it would strike for some fatal spot.
Two human figures rushed and flashed in the battleground. Green and
yellow Dou Qi rendered the entire battle circle into a two-colored world.
Each time the heavy ruler and the long spear collided, they would shake
and form a rippling force that was visible to the naked eye. This ripple
would spread out and threads of crack lines began repeatedly spreading
all over the hard ground.
The heavy ruler and the long spear were pressed on each other. Xiao Yan
violently collided with Bai Cheng. As the wind spread, Bai Cheng
hurriedly took a few steps back while Xiao Yan took four steps back.
Clearly, Xiao Yan may have an advantage in his physical strength, but at
the moment, when the other party used the powerful Dou Qi of a six star
Dou Ling, he still ends up being weaker.
A ‘xu xi’ sound was involuntarily emitted from the viewing gallery
upon the sight of Xiao Yan being in a disadvantaged situation. The
members of the ‘White Gang’ borrowed the opportunity to let out
ridicule and laughing curses.
“Humph, it is just brute force. It cannot even enter my eye.” Bai
Cheng waved his long spear after having gained the advantage in the
collision. He coldly laughed, “If you are still going to rely on this
brute force after this, you should just roll down by yourself.”
The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth lifted into a cold smile when he heard
this. Under everyone’s gaze, he abruptly inserted the heavy ruler into
the ground. His hands swiftly formed various strange hand seals.
Following the formation of the hand seals, hot green-colored flame
abruptly curled up from within his body. The green-colored flame wrapped
him until he was ablaze. An instant later, however, the hot flame
suddenly shrank back and finally entered Xiao Yan’s body in a
“Sky Fire Three Mysterious Change: Green Lotus Change!”
Xiao Yan cried out softly in his heart. His body immediately trembled.
Wild and violent energy suddenly surged out explosively from the veins
within his body. Finally, it became like a torrent of flood water that
flowed to every corner of his entire body.
The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth was lifted as he sensed the Dou Qi
within his body soar abruptly. His hand once again grabbed the hilt of
the Heavy Xuan Ruler as he eyed Bai Cheng. He smiled and said, “Let’s
do this again!”
The moment Xiao Yan’s words sounded, a ‘bang’ appeared. His body
turned into a black line that rushed explosively toward Bai Cheng. Each
time his feet landed, they would leave a half an inch deep footprints in
the ground. That strong charging momentum was just like a human-shaped
Magical Beast which possessed a great amount of charging force!
