Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-602
The sound of rushing wind, that was brought about by the human figures
flashing about, sounded repeatedly in the blue sky. The energy explosions
were like that of firecrackers sounding again and again. Powerful energy
ripples were something that one could still vaguely sense despite being
over fifty meters away.
Most of the Inner Academy was currently destroyed by the remnant waves
that had spread out from the fight. This caused some of the Inner Academy
students to have little choice but to move to an even further place to
avoid the remnant ripples.
While they withdrew, numerous gazes focused intently on the great chaotic
battle in the sky. Most of the gazes carried a wild heat and excitement
as they paused on a certain battleground. At this place, a young figure
had erupted recklessly. His opponent, an expert Dou huang who had quite
the reputation within the ‘Black-Corner Region,’ had fallen into a
disadvantage, and appeared extremely miserable.
“Looks like Xiao Yan is about to win.” Liu Qing’s gaze was shining
as he watched those two vague human figures from the top of a building.
The shock in his voice was not the least bit concealed.
A beautiful figure stood prettily behind Liu Qing. Looking at that pretty
face, it was surprisingly Liu Qing’s younger cousin sister, Liu Fei. At
this moment, this beauty, who had borne a great grudge toward Xiao Yan,
no longer showed the hateful look in her eyes as they watched the figure
in the sky. Her delicate hand covered her red lips while her pretty eyes
reflected a strange flicker. That lovely face of hers was covered with a
complicated expression. She had never expected that the person whom she
had once looked down upon would be currently displaying a frightening
strength that even Liu Qing was shocked at. Such strength had already
exceeded the boundary of a student. Even some of the Elders within the
Inner Academy could not reach such heights.
If it was said that Liu Fei felt an additional fear toward Xiao Yan after
the latter’s fight with Liu Qing ended up in a draw where both were
seriously injured. The strength that Xiao Yan was currently displaying
had completely caused this haughty and unreasonable girl to become a
little kitten which did not have even the slightest courage to fight back
in front of him.
This kind of strength had already reached the point where she no longer
had the courage to fight or offend! This was because her current greatest
support, Liu Qing, also had no ability to resist under this kind of
Therefore, the instant that Xiao Yan suppressed the Dou Huang class Fan
Lao until the latter ended up in a disadvantage, the grudge that was in
Liu Fei’s heart automatically disappeared completely. Although she was
rude and unreasonable, she was no fool. She knew just who she could
offend and who she could not…
A noise suddenly sounded from around her just as this thought lingered in
her heart. She hurriedly raised her head and her pretty eyes was thrown
toward the battleground where all the students of the Inner Academy were
focusing on. Even though they were far apart, she was still able to sense
an extremely powerful wind suddenly surfacing.
Xiao Yan’s eyes suddenly became stern as he once again came close to
Fan Lao’s body in the sky. The hand which was about to slam onto the
latter’s shoulders suddenly tightened. His elbow protruded forward in a
strange manner and his body charged forward. A wave of powerful wind
agglomerated instantly at his elbow. Finally, it carried the deep
exploding sound of air along with a cold cry as it violently smashed on
the chest of the pale-faced Fan Lao.
The deep muffled sound from the clashing of physical bodies sounded in
the sky. Everyone could vaguely see the layer of blood film that had been
lingering on Fan Lao’s body broken apart completely as Xiao Yan’s
elbow landed firmly on the former’s chest!
The wild and violent attack from Xiao Yan earlier had caused signs of
superficial Dou Qi to appear within Fan Lao’s body. The blood film
which was the only one used to protect his life was shattered by the
former. Hence, the powerful force that came toward him completely erupted
on his chest in an unbridled fashion.
With the blood film being shattered, Fan Lao, who had lost his greatest
defense, finally began to show signs of defeat. The force spurted out
wildly and a sleek redness immediately surged on Fan Lao’s pale face. A
mouthful of fresh blood was involuntarily spat out. His body plummeted
down from the sky like a cannonball. Finally, it landed heavily into some
debris, causing rock fragments to shoot and spread out in all directions.
Fan Lao’s defeat caused the entire place to be silent. The defeat of an
expert Dou Huang was quite a great loss for the side from the
‘Black-Corner Region’. Moreover, the moment that Fan Lao was
defeated, there was no longer anyone who was able to keep Xiao Yan in
check. If Xiao Yan was allowed to participate in the great chaotic
battle, the stalemate would definitely be immediately broken. Finally,
the ‘Black-Corner Region’ which had originally occupied the upper
hand might well have the situation turned around by the Jia Nan Academy!
This point was something that not only the experts who were fighting
understood, but the countless number of students from the Inner Academy
below were also clearly aware about it. Hence, the instant that Fan Lao
spat out blood and fell to the ground, wild, joyful, loud cheers combined
with each other before rushing to the clouds. This cheer did not
disappear for a long time!
The pair of green fire wings flapped slowly in the sky. Xiao Yan’s gaze
was focused intently at the spot where Fan Lao had landed. He only let
out a relieved sigh after sensing the weak aura. He was able to
temporarily contend with an expert Dou Huang by borrowing Yao Lao’s
strength. Although it would definitely not have consumed so much time to
defeat Fan Lao if he had displayed Yao Lao’s strength recklessly; Xiao
Yan clearly understood that there was a similar fear of Yao Lao’s
identity being exposed. After all, there were so many experts in this
place. If he were careless and allowed someone to see something, it would
not be good news for Xiao Yan, whose current strength was insufficient to
protect Yao Lao.
However, even though Xiao Yan was unable to unleash the complete extent
of Yao Lao’s strength, it was not too difficult for him to rely on the
strength of the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ and the restraint it imposed
on Fan Lao to defeat the latter.
“I cannot leave this old dog’s life. Otherwise, there will be no end
of trouble in the future.” A viciousness suddenly flashed across Xiao
Yan’s eyes. He clearly understood just how troublesome it would be to
form a blood feud with an elite Dou Huang. Hence, he would naturally not
give up this chance to completely crush his weakened enemy.
This thought had just flashed in his heart when Xiao Yan’s body moved
swiftly. One could see his wings flapping before his body transformed
into a cluster of green flame. Immediately, it became like a meteorite
falling to the ground as it smashed into the spot where Fan Lao had
landed earlier in front of paa countless number of stunned gazes.
“Old dog, go and die!”
A cry that was filled with stern killing intent resounded across the sky.
The green flame flashed and reached its destination in a lightning-like
manner. It smashed into the debris with a ‘bang’. A forceful ripple
immediately spread out and turned some of the surrounding rock fragments
into powder. Numerous crack lines that were as thick as his arm began
spreading out like a spiderweb.
A sharp cry quickly sounded as the green flame came smashing down. A
bloody glow immediately shot out from the spot where the green flame
spread. The bloody glow was dark and was completely different from the
powerful majestic previous self.
The speed of the blood glow was extremely frightening. With a flash, it
appeared in the sky a couple of hundred meters from the ground. Only then
did the figure within it slowly appear. It was surprisingly Fan Lao whose
body was covered in blood. However, the latter’s appearance was
extremely miserable at this instance. Not only was his body covered in
fresh blood but his entire body was much more frail. That manner was as
though he was a dried corpse whose blood had been completely drained by
“What great speed…” The green flame flashed on the ground and Xiao
Yan once again rushed into the air. His gaze was dark and cold as he
watched the distant pale-faced Fan Lao who appeared to be on his last
gasp of air. From the looks of the other party’s appearance, Xiao Yan
clearly understood that this old fellow had instantly vaporized the
liquid blood within his body and unleashed a speed that even Xiao Yan
could not hope to match. It was only this reason that he avoided
“Xiao Yan! You are actually thinking of exterminating me when I am
down?” Fan Lao maintained a great distance from Xiao Yan as he cried
out in a stern hoarse voice.
“Sect Leader Fan, isn’t it too laughable for you, a person from the
‘Black-Corner Region,’ to say these words? Isn’t such a thing only
too common to people like you?” Xiao Yan laughed coldly as he
ridiculed. His gaze firmly locked onto Fan Lao as the Dou Qi in his body
churned and became ready to once again unleash a killing move.
Fan Lao’s expression was green and white. A moment later, he suddenly
laughed and said, “Actually, this matter is but a misunderstanding…”
“Ke ke, I also share the same thought…” Xiao Yan fondled his chin
as he thought deeply for an instant after hearing Fan Lao’s words. He
actually nodded his head. However, just as Fan Lao was momentarily
stunned by his reaction, a faint rolling thunder suddenly sounded. Xiao
Yan’s figure abruptly disappeared!
Fan Lao’s eyes shrank the moment the sound of thunder appeared. He
clenched his teeth violently and his fist smashed on his chest. A
mouthful of blood was spat out violently and his body once again turned
into a blood glow that disappeared from his original spot the instant it
Xiao Yan’s body surfaced in a strange manner the instant that Fan
Lao’s disappeared. A fist was violently punched out and struck the
afterimage that remained, shattering it until nothing was left.
Xiao Yan frowned slightly. He raised his head and his gaze swept across
the place. Finally, it stopped in the sky a couple of hundred meters
away. Fan Lao, whose face was nearly transparent, once again flashed and
appeared at that spot.
“Another afterimage huh… I want to see just how much fresh blood you
can use.” The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth was lifted into a dense,
cold arc. He was just about to go after Fan Lao with the intention of
finishing him off when the clear sound of an energy barrier shattering
suddenly reverberated through the sky.
That sound may not have been very loud, but it possessed a kind of
magical strength, causing all the battlegrounds in the sky to temporarily
pause. Numerous gazes suddenly shifted down. Finally, they paused at the
top of the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’, whose roof had already
been broken. Everyone’s face immediately changed drastically!
“This is bad… that bastard is actually going to break the seal
again…” Su Qian’s expression immediately change the moment the
voice sounded. His gaze suddenly turned toward the ‘Blazing Sky Qi
Refining Tower’, and his voice contained a shock that could not be
“Is this the ‘Heavenly Flame’ of the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining
Tower’? It is really unexpected that it has already gathered and form
an intelligence…” Han Feng’s gaze also followed the voice and was
thrown to the top of the tower. His eyes were filled with a fiery heat as
his body was so excited that it began to tremble at this moment.
That black-colored energy film at the top of the tower had already broken
apart at an unknown time. A pair of enormous snake eyes that contained a
flame slowly surfaced from within the darkness. Finally, it swept over
the body of every single person in the sky, causing them to feel a chill
all over their bodies.
