Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-575
The two human figures appeared to be like meteors colliding as they
crashed under the gazes of the countless number of people. Monstrous Dou
Qi ripples from the fallout were shot all over the place.
The heavy ruler in his hand cut through the air much like a black-colored
lightning bolt. It carried a ferocious wind that caused the air to
distort. It violently hacked down toward the unmoving Liu Qing who was
like an imposing mountain. Under that powerful force, even the air under
the ruler was completely expelled. A low sonic boom resounded, much like
an underground explosion, oppressing and horrifying people.
The powerful suppressing wind caused Liu Qing’s clothes to be glued to
his skin. However, his face did not move just because of the heavy ruler
that came hacking over ferociously. His eyes indifferently watched the
increasingly heavy ruler. When it was merely half a foot from his head,
Liu Qing finally took a random gentle step to the left.
The heavy ruler landed strongly, but it glanced past Liu Qing’s arm
narrowly as it fell. It did not have the slightest contribution. The
instant that the attack missed, Liu Qing’s left hand curled slightly.
It immediately slapped to the left side in front of him.
The seemingly careless slap by the hand claw slapped extremely accurately
on the body of the ruler the instant the heavy ruler fell. Immediately, a
powerful force surged out and slammed the heavy ruler until it flew over
a foot away, which coincidentally blocked Xiao Yan’s intention of
immediately changing his attack stance.
As the subsequent attack stance by the heavy ruler was cut off, the
entire aura of Xiao Yan also delayed for the blink of an eye. Liu Qing
completely grabbed the opportunity of this momentary pause, which was
extremely difficult to discover. His palm faced the ground and was curled
into a slight arc which was like an extremely sharp beast claw. His arm
trembled and the sharp claw carried a cold wind as it smashed heavily
toward Xiao Yan’s chest.
Xiao Yan also reacted in an instant as the heavy ruler was pushed aside.
His left hand moved aside in a lighting-like manner. Powerful Dou Qi
swiftly agglomerated over his fist as he clenched his five fingers. It
was immediately thrown out violently and coincidentally collided together
with that hand claw that was extending over explosively.
A fist and a claw collided violently as a low, deep explosion suddenly
appeared. A ripple force that caused the air to fluctuate continuously
surged out before spreading in all directions.
Xiao Yan’s body shook intensely as his footsteps stepped back quickly.
The extremely hard ground was filled with threads of crack lines each
time one of his feet landed. This continued for quite a number of
footsteps before a soft muffled snort softly sounded from Xiao Yan’s
throat. His right foot immediately stomped violently. The hard ground
where it landed was instantly cracked, forming extremely small fragments.
Xiao Yan completely resolved the force that was transmitted from his hand
before raising his head with a serious expression. He eyed Liu Qing who
had merely took one step back. The other party’s strength had steadily
suppressed him in a head on collision.
Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of somewhat cool air. His gaze stared
intently at the expressionless Liu Qing on the opposite side. In his
heart he clearly knew that the longer he dragged out the fight with this
kind of person, a person with powerful strength and awfully rich combat
experience, the greater it was to his disadvantage. Hence, if he wanted
to greatly increase his chances of victory, he must obtain the greatest
offensive affect in the shortest amount of time.
Although Xiao Yan knew just what kind of fighting tactic was the most
advantageous in his heart, he still felt somewhat of a headache. Liu Qing
was not an ordinary opponent. As long as he revealed even the slightest
bit of an opening, it was likely that he would be faced with a storm of
wild attacks. He was waiting for the best opportunity to strike, and so
was his opponent. The thing that caused him to be most depressed was that
the other party had sufficient time to leisurely and quietly wait for
Xiao Yan’s strength to be exhausted. However, he on the other hand,
must obtain a certain offensive affect within a certain period of time.
Xiao Yan had undoubtedly fallen into a disadvantage under the comparison
of this mentality.
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly in his heart as he tossed those chaotic
thoughts out of his mind. He tightly gripped the ruler’s hilt as his
gaze narrowed and eyed Liu Qing on the opposite side, who had similarly
placed all his attention on him. A moment later, Xiao Yan’s body
suddenly leaned a little forward as his feet abruptly stepped on the
ground. Immediately, he carried the extremely sharp sound of rushing
wind. The pressure of the wind was great as a vague black shadow broke
through the resistance of the air in a lightning-like manner and shot
explosively toward Liu Qing
Xiao Yan’s sudden ruler throwing assault caused surprise to flash
across Liu Qing’s eyes. However, his expression did not change much.
Both his hands were abruptly curled into a claw-like shape and his
footsteps advanced instead of retreating. As a step fell suddenly, his
somewhat large hand-claw was wrapped by a pale-golden Dou Qi. He extended
a little below the vague black shadow that had suddenly appeared between
his hand claws!
Liu Qing’s hand claws were wrapped by a pale-golden Dou Qi as they
abruptly grasped with force that lightning-like black shadow that had
abruptly paused in midair!
Although his hand-claw grabbed the heavy ruler, Liu Qing’s body was
shaken by this powerful force until he took a couple continuous steps
back. Only then did he completely resolve all the force caused by the
heavy ruler. However, by being able to just rely on the strength of a
claw to easily receive this heavy ruler of Xiao Yan, with enough force to
shatter a mountain rock, it must be said that the strength of this fellow
was really somewhat frightening.
Liu Qing’s five fingers were curled into a strange arc and all his
fingers were coincidentally in contact with the heavy ruler. The couple
of relay points and the powerful Dou Qi on his body was the reason he was
able to receive Xiao Yan’s attack in such an easy manner.
As Liu Qing’s hand-claw gripped the heavy ruler, the frightening weight
that it contained immediately caused Liu Qing’s expression to change a
little. Although he had already expected that this ruler would be quite
heavy, he was somewhat surprised to discover that this ruler was even
heavier than his own Mountain Splitting Spear now that he had.
Surprise had just risen in his heart when astonishment quickly followed.
This was because Liu Qing was somewhat shocked to realize that the Dou Qi
that was originally flowing extremely smoothly within his body had
suddenly become very sluggish after grabbing hold of the heavy ruler.
“This ruler is a little strange!” A thought flashed across his heart
in a lightning-like manner. Liu Qing’s hand-claws were basically
relaxed at the same time. The heavy ruler powerlessly fell down after it
was ceased being clamped onto.
A slight low rolling thunder sound suddenly rang out the instant that the
heavy ruler rolled down. Liu Qing frown slightly. He instantly raised his
head and a vague black shadow appeared within close vicinity in a strange
The vague black shadow borrowed the instant that Liu Qing was
absentminded because of the Heavy Xuan Ruler and approached him in an
instant. Those five fingers were abruptly tightly clenched as the Dou Qi
in his body wildly circulated at this instant.
A low cry suddenly sounded as Xiao Yan’s fist violently smashed
directly at Liu Qing. Along the way, the wind on his fist soared a couple
of times as unceasing low, deep explosive sounds, like that of
firecrackers, resonated by everyone ears.
An attack that was wilder and more vicious compared to any other caused
Liu Qing’s eyes to be slightly narrowed. He could sense that this
incomparably ferocious attack by Xiao Yan was the powerful close range
attack that had defeated Bai Cheng and Yao Sheng.
“It is still a little lacking if you want to rely on this to defeat me.
However, I want to see whether this close range attack of yours can
contend with my ‘Great Rift Coffin Splitting Claw’.”
A smile surfaced on his face as Liu Qing’s hand-claw suddenly curled
into a strange arc. Pale-golden Dou Qi lingered over the tip of his
fingers. It expanded and shrank carrying a dense chill.
“‘Great Rift Coffin Splitting Claw’!”
The claw faced the attack and the smile on Liu Qing’s face was
instantly withdrawn a moment later. His arm was extended as his hand claw
shot out explosively. A shapeless wind formed a partially visible glowing
arc in front of the claw. Its aura was extremely shocking and was not the
least bit weaker than Xiao Yan’s ‘Octane Blast’.
Waves of exclamation sounded from the viewing gallery when they saw the
two people in the arena who had actually chosen the most direct physical
fight. Everyone was able to tell that the two people were quite
accomplished in terms of close quarters combat. However, they were
similarly clearly aware that this kind of close range physical combat was
somewhat bloodier and more violent when compared to a fight between
weapons. Of course, men did not have the slightest bit of discrimination
toward this. This could be seen from the faces of the students that were
suddenly filled with a red glow.
Wu Hao and the others also tensed up their bodies at this moment. In this
kind of physical combat, any carelessness would basically result in one
ending up losing with serious injuries. Although they had great
understanding of Xiao Yan’s close range combat, that Liu Qing was
similarly an expert in this style.
“This close range attack of Xiao Yan is likely of a class that is not
lower than that of the ‘Great Rift Coffin Splitting Claw’. However, I
don’t know whether it will be able to defeat it in a head on clash.”
Yao Hao eyed the wind that Xiao Yan carried somewhat seriously as he
opened his mouth to speak.
Lin Xiuya’s gaze did not blink as he eyed the arena. However, he slowly
shook his head when he heard Yan Hao’s words. “I’m afraid that it
won’t. I have seen Xiao Yan display this kind of Dou Technique a couple
of times. Although its explosive force is extremely strong, the follow up
eruption after that cannot be compared to that of the ‘Great Rift
Coffin Splitting Claw’. After all, Liu Qing has practiced this until he
had truly reached the pinnacle level. If Liu Qing were to take down Xiao
Yan’s attack, the retaliation that follows might well result in Xiao
Yan being in danger of losing.”
Wu Hao, Han Yue, and the couple of others beside him nodded when they
heard this. Their gaze immediately carried a worry as they eyed the
collision that had instantly erupted within arena.
Under the countless number of gazes, the fist and claw, which
respectively carried extremely strong destructive forces, finally
collided with a bang!
The clear sound of an explosive force suddenly sounded in the arena. A
ripple that could be called a storm suddenly erupted from the point of
contact between the two of them. The ground repeatedly emitted an
overwhelming cracking sound wherever it passed. Numerous crack lines
began swiftly spreading from under the bodies of the two of them in a
The destructive strength created by the forceful storm caused the sound
of saliva being swallowed from the viewing gallery to appear one after
another. This extremely pure physical strength actually had such a
frightening destructive force.
A fist and a claw appeared to have been adhered together within the arena
as an invisible force repeatedly spread out from the feet of the two
people. After which, everyone saw the extremely firm ground swiftly crack
apart, turning into extremely tiny fragments before the fragments were
finally shaken into powder at the end!
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared firmly at the expressionless Liu Qing. His arm
trembled slightly at this instant. The resultant force from the head on
collision between the two had nearly caused his arm to descend into a
numb state. His heart sank a little. This time around, the ‘Octane
Blast’ which had never failed in the past did not achieve much impact.
Xiao Yan could sense that when the hidden force of the ‘Octane Blast’
entered Liu Qing’s body, it was shattered by an even more ferocious
The force that was created from the Octane Blast was being swiftly
reduced. On the other hand, the large hand claw that was tightly grabbing
his hand did not show the slightest trace of relaxing.
“The eruption force is fair but the follow up is inadequate!” At a
certain moment, the rock statue like Liu Qing suddenly opened his mouth
slowly and smiled toward Xiao Yan. He spoke softly, “I’m afraid that
it is over!”
Liu Qing’s voice had just fell when his hand claw abruptly pressed down
in a strange manner. Immediately, it broke past the hindrance of Xiao
Yan’s arm and shot toward the latter’s chest. The claw’s wind was
incomparably sharp. Xiao Yan’s defeat was basically certain should he
be struck by it!
However, Xiao Yan’s left hand that had been left dangling was already
prepared as it swiftly formed some seals. He smiled slightly as a hot
green-colored flame surged out from his body. As the flame surfaced, a
firm flame armor, that could not be destroyed, suddenly covered Xiao
“That may not be the case!”
