Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-641
The frightening firestorm spread horizontally across the sky. Its hot
temperature caused the air in this area to become extremely dry. Powerful
fire ripples turned into a fire curtain that spread about, occupying over
half of the space. This resulted in one’s vision becoming distorted and
blurry at this moment.
Countless numbers of gazes were stunned as they watched the firestorm
that swept across the sky. Despite being a great distance away, they
still felt their legs become wobbly. If this kind of explosion had been a
little lower, it was likely that this city would have turned into a
graveyeard in an extremely short period of time!
The strong from both sides who had been engaging in an intense great
battle in the sky earlier had all descended from the sky in panic.
Staying high in the sky during this period of time when even the natural
energy had become violent was an extremely foolish thing. Once one was
struck by the firestorm… one’s fate would be extremely miserable.
“This Xiao Yan fellow… is really becoming more and more
frightening.” Lin Yan wiped the perspiration on his face while standing
on the peak of a mountain as he spoke with a bitter smile to Lin Xiuya
and Liu Qing by the side. The three of them were currently Elders of the
Inner Academy. Therefore, they would naturally be involved in such a
large scale battle. The three of them had joined hands to hold back an
elite Dou Huang earlier. Although they ended up in a miserable state by
the sharp attacks of the latter, they had successfully ended up delaying
Lin Xiuya and Liu Qing sighed and nodded while sharing the same feeling
when they heard Lin Yan’s bitter laugh. It had only been a short two
years, but the new student who had to call them senior when they met back
then already possessed the strength to contend head-on with a top expert
of the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Such a transformation really caused
people to sigh emotionally. Liu Qing possessed an extremely deep feeling
toward this. Back then, Xiao Yan had gone all out to fight until he was
seriously injured and unconscious in the arena battle back then only to
end up with a situation in which both of them were defeated with serious
injuries. From the looks of things now… it was likely that Xiao Yan
would be able to easily finish him off within five exchanges…
Liu Qing also let out a bitter laugh when he thought of this. His heart
could not help but utter a word of submission to Xiao Yan. Such a
frightening training speed already had nothing to do with training
talent. It was completely decided by one’s lucky opportunities…
Xiao Li’s figure rushed out on a treetop not far from the three of
them. His expression was a little worried as he watched the firestorm
that had basically covered the entire sky. Even though he had confidence
in Xiao Yan, he could not help but feel uneasy in the face of such a
frightening energy collision. After all, that Han Feng was not an
ordinary person. During the two years he had muddled along within the
‘Black-Corner Region’, he had been repeatedly inquiring about
information on the ‘Black Alliance’. However, he had never received
the slightest news that Han Feng was about to enter the Dou Zong class.
However, the true strength that the latter was currently displaying
really caused most people to be shocked.
“Xiao-yan-zi, you better be alright. Otherwise, how can I have the face
to see your big brother.” Xiao Li rubbed his hands together. He could
only pray that Xiao Yan would have sufficient luck to escape from the
firestorm at this moment.
A countless number of gazes relaxed when they raised their heads to see
the firestorm that spread through the sky was some distance away now that
they had fled from it. Private conversations quietly sounded. Clearly,
everyone wanted to know whether it would be Xiao Yan or Han Feng who
would be the one to successfully flee this firestorm.
The spreading firestorm finally began to gradually disappear in front of
numerous gazes after having spread an extremely great distance. However,
there was still not the slightest activity of the two human figures
The sky was void of activity, and the people on the ground did not dare
to emit any loud sound. They looked at each other and their faces changed
slightly. Did the both of them perish within the firestorm?
Su Qian did not blink his eyes as he stared at the middle of the
firestorm in the sky. Despite his strength, he was totally unaware of the
situation within it at this very moment. Therefore, he could do nothing
other than pray.
While everyone was staring with expressions of loss, there was suddenly a
rushing wind sound that appeared in the vast sky. A human figure
immediately shot out explosively from the storm.
The human figure that had suddenly appeared immediately gathered the
gazes of everyone present. Although the human figure was shooting out at
a very fast speed, there were still some sharp-eyed people who could
identify him. Immediately, joyous voices sounded.
“It’s the Alliance Head! He is alive!”
The tensed up faces of those from the ‘Black Alliance’ immediately
became much more relax upon hearing these joyous cries. Some smiles
faintly appeared on their faces. Since the last person who survived was
Han Feng, it was likely that the Inner Academy would withdraw miserably
with ashen faces. They would also have gained an additional capital to
boost to the other factions in the ‘Black-Corner Region’. After all,
which other factions within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ other than the
‘Black Alliance’ had managed to beat the Inner Academy?
The faces of those from the Inner Academy instantly became ugly compared
to the pleased look of those from the ‘Black Alliance’. They clenched
their teeth and the atmosphere appeared exceptionally pressuring due to
Xiao Li’s eyes had suddenly become completely red when he heard the
loud cry of those from the ‘Black Alliance’. A savage killing intent
slowly climbed onto his cold face. He had already decided in his heart.
If any mishap were to happen to Xiao Yan, he would get Han Feng to pay a
price in blood today even if he had to stake his life.
“Everyone, don’t act disorderly. There is something not quite
right!” Su Qian’s cry suddenly sounded when everyone’s mood had
sunk. They were somewhat stunned as they raised their heads, only to see
that Su Qian was focused intently on Han Feng who was shooting down from
the sky. Everyone’s gaze followed his to look over and they too sensed
that something was wrong. Although Han Feng had escaped from the
firestorm, the posture in which he landed on the ground seemed to be one
where he fell from the sky after being violently kicked.
The sharp sound of rushing wind once again reverberated across the sky
while everyone was feeling uncertain in their hearts. The firestorm that
spread through the sky suddenly trembled. Immediately, a black figure
rushed out from within it. The dark-green fire wings were exceptionally
eye catching in the sky.
“It’s Xiao Yan! He hasn’t died!”
The Inner Academy’s experts who were dispirited immediately cheered
when they saw those familiar fire wings.
The savageness on Xiao Li’s face slowly withdrew as he watched the
familiar fire wings with a stunned expression. His heart finally sighed
heavily as he bitterly laughed, “This fellow… really doesn’t allow
one to relax.”
With the appearance of Xiao Yan’s figure, the originally proud and
laughing people from the ‘Black-Corner Region’ became just like ducks
with their throats pinched. Their laughter suddenly ceased, and the
expressions on their faces appeared exceptionally comical.
The black figure’s jade-green wings flapped in the sky, and his body
turned into a dark-green glow that swiftly shot down toward Han Feng who
was falling rapidly to the ground. In the blink of an eye, the black
figure appeared above Han Feng’s head in front of the shocked gazes of
all the experts from the ‘Black-Corner Region’.
“Little bastard, you dare…”
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared intently at Han Feng whose internal Dou Qi was
blocked because of the backlash from the flame. A dark-green flame wildly
surged over his fist. The fist immediately contained an incomparably
fierce force as it ruthlessly smashed into his chest!
“A traitor who betrays his teacher deserves to die!”
Xiao Yan’s furious roar reverberated unceasingly across the sky as his
fist ruthlessly smashed down.
A low, deep sound from the contact of flesh was suddenly emitted across
the sky, causing the hearts of a countless number of people to violently
contract at this moment.
A mouthful of fresh, red blood was spat out of Han Feng’s mouth upon
receiving such a heavy blow without any defenses. His body appeared to
have become like a bird with its wings broken as it weakly fell to the
ground. Finally, he heavily smashed into some plains just outside Feng
City in front of a countless number of shocked gazes.
Xiao Yan’s face was covered with fresh blood. His chest rose and fell
rapidly as his wings flapped slightly. A weak feeling was repeatedly
emitted from his body, indicating that he had already reached his limit.
Xiao Yan flapped the increasingly illusory wings on his back as his eyes
stared intently at the unmoving Han Feng who had smashed into the ground,
forming an enormous pit. He could sense that the latter’s breath might
be extremely weak, but had not completely disappeared.
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth ruthlessly as he shook his hand. An enormous
Heavy Xuan Ruler flashed and appeared. His hands held it tightly as he
flapped the wings on his back. He circulated the little remaining Dou Qi
in his body and shot explosively toward Han Feng, who was lying on the
ground with his last lingering breath. The aim was to give the latter a
“Save the Alliance Head!”
Xiao Yan’s action were instantly sensed by the experts from the
‘Black-Corner Region’. Their faces immediately changed drastically as
a stern cry immediately sounded. They clearly understood the importance
of Han Feng to the ‘Black Alliance’. If they lost Han Feng, it was
likely that the large alliance would collapse!
Su Qian let out a cold cry the moment the experts from the
‘Black-Corner Region’ moved. All the Inner Academy Elders who had
long been waiting for an order immediately moved. They formed a human
wall outside of Feng City. Numerous powerful auras rose and forced back
those people from the ‘Black-Corner Region’ who were attempting a
Xiao Yan flashed and appeared just a couple of dozen feet above Han
Feng’s head by relying on the blocking action performed by the Elders
of the Inner Academy. He raised his heavy ruler high above his head and
did not hesitate as he used the most vicious method to smash it at Han
Feng’s head. That momentum was such that if it struck, it was likely
that Han Feng would die on the spot despite his strength!
“Tsk tsk, Han Feng was indeed right. Yao Sheng’s spiritual body is
indeed in this little fellow’s body!”
A ghastly strange laugh suddenly sounded in the sky the moment the heavy
ruler smashed down. Immediately, a cluster of black fog strangely
surfaced on the plains.
The black fog had just appeared when a dark-black chain that contained a
deep luster suddenly shot out from the black fog. The metal chain’s
speed was extremely frightening. It was not far from Xiao Yan in an
instant. The end of the metal chain was as sharp as a blade, and an
unusual cold glint faintly seeped out from it.
At this moment, Xiao Yan had also ran out of steam. Swinging the ruler
and unleashing his final attack toward Han Feng had already completely
exhausted all his strength. Hence, he actually did not have the slightest
strength to dodge the metal chain that was shooting toward him!
Xiao Yan turned his head with great difficulty. The thing that was
imprinted in his eyes was that a somewhat unusual black, enormous metal
“This is… those fellows from the ‘Hall of Souls’?” The cluster
of black fog shaped like a human figure was similar to what he had seen
in the ‘Great Plains of the Black-Corner Region’ swiftly flashed
across his mind. This attacking method and the person in front of him
were nearly identical!
The dark-black metal chain did not stop because Xiao Yan had guessed its
identity. That cluster of black fog was extremely vicious in its attack.
Hence, it had unleashed a killing move the moment it attacked! If this
chain were to strike Xiao Yan’s body, it was likely that his life would
be immediately taken!
“It is really unexpected… that I will end up dying in the hands of
these fellows.” Xiao Yan sighed with extreme fatigue in his heart. A
bitterness seeped out from the corner of his mouth as he slowly shut his
eyes. In this kind of situation, even Su Qian would not be able to save
him in time…
“Your life is mine!”
The chain arrived quickly. However, just as it was about to penetrate
Xiao Yan’s heart, an ice-cold, numbing voice could suddenly be heard
behind his ear. Immediately, a delicate, gentle, boneless-like hand
surfaced in a strange manner and grabbed the chain firmly!
