Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-648
Queen Medusa gave a cold snort when she saw the bright smile on Xiao
Yan’s face. She made the decision in her heart that she would
definitely turn this fellow into ten thousand pieces in the future once
she escaped the influence of the ‘Heaven Swallowing Python’!
Xiao Yan smiled and sat up from the huge rock. He said to Medusa, “In
that case, we can be considered companions from now on.”
“We only have the relationship of business partners, not companions!”
Queen Medusa skimmed her sleek red lips, and completely destroyed Xiao
Yan’s thoughts of bringing their relationship closer.
“Alright, alright, a business relationship.” Xiao Yan indifferently
spread his hand and smiled before saying, “However, since we are going
to be together and one year is so long, I cannot simply keep calling you
Medusa, right? Why don’t I help you pick a name? Otherwise, other
people will know your identity once I call your name in the future.”
“There is no need to concern yourself with it!” Queen Medusa merely
replied coldly to Xiao Yan’s good intentions.
“Why don’t I call you Cai Lin? I think that this name really suits
you.” Xiao Yan continued speaking on his own, feeling not the least bit
concerned that this name was a little philistine.
TL: Cai Lin – means colorful scales in reference to the colorful scales
on the Heaven Swallowing Python
“Get lost!” Queen Medusa was irritated by Xiao Yan’s endless words,
which caused her to be furious. Her pretty eyes were filled with coldness
as she stared at the young man in front of her. However, when she saw the
bright warm smile on the former’s face, the fury in her eyes somewhat
dissipated. She coldly said, “Queen Medusa is not just my name, but
also my status. I don’t need you to change my name.” Once she said
this, she turned around and rushed into the distance.
“You have already transformed into a human. Not the half-human
half-snake form of the past. Therefore, you naturally need a name. In the
future, I will call you Cai Lin. Saying Queen Medusa is far too
troublesome.” Xiao Yan raised his head somewhat recklessly, and cried
out loud to Queen Medusa in the sky.
Queen Medusa’s body paused slightly. Her eyes flickered for an instant.
However, she did not cry out angrily this time around. Her body moved and
she transformed into a light figure that rushed into the distance.
“Additionally, can I trouble you to help me keep an eye on my
surroundings and not let anyone disturb me. Otherwise, if an accident
happens, our transaction will be null and void…”
Queen Medusa completely ignored Xiao Yan’s loud cry. Her body flashed
and she disappeared into the horizon. No one knew if she bore Xiao
Yan’s words in her heart.
Xiao Yan smiled slightly when he saw Queen Medusa’s disappear. He had
finally settled this big trouble. With the so-called ‘Soul Recovery
Pill’ transaction, he would no longer need to worry about when that
frightening woman would appear and kill him.
“Hee hee, Han Feng did indeed own a rich collection. He even possessed
a medicinal formula for a medicine with such a strange effect. It is
thanks to him that I am able to settle my problem this time around.”
Xiao Yan rubbed the ‘Serene Sea Storage Ring’ on his hand and softly
laughed. If it was just him, he naturally did not possess a medicinal
formula like the ‘Soul Recovery Pill’. This thing was something he
had taken from the ‘Serene Sea Storage Ring’ while he was
“Now, I can finally relax and practice the ‘God Seal Palm’…”
Xiao Yan stretched his lazy waist and smiled slightly. He once again sat
down cross-legged on the huge rock and shut his eyes. His mind moved as
some information slowly flowed past his heart.
Xiao Yan carefully read the training method for the ‘Open Mountain
Seal’. It was a long while later before he knit his brows and opened
his eyes. “This ‘God Seal Technique’ is indeed worthy of being a Di
Class High Level Dou Technique. The difficulty involved while practicing
it was many times that of the ‘Flame Splitting Tsunami’.”
“It actually needs to open three specific Qi Paths before one can
condense a palm and maneuver Dou Qi to unleash the Dou Technique…”
Xiao Yan knit his brows tightly. The Qi Paths in one’s body were as
complicated as the stars all over the sky. There were a countless number
of them. Some of them were tiny and difficult to find. Moreover, they
were also extremely brittle. Forget about opening them, they would crack
open even if one used a slightly stronger energy to charge at it. The
three specific Qi Paths of the ‘Open Mountain Seal’ were
coincidentally three remote ones on his right hand. One would definitely
have to spend quite a large amount of time in order to open them up.
This kind of Dou Technique which required one to open up certain veins in
order to use was usually one with a terrifying strength or one that
belonged to the legendary class. Back then, Xiao Yan did not need to
purposefully open up any Qi Paths when he practiced the ‘Flame
Splitting Tsunami’. From this, one could tell just how unique this
‘God Seal Technique’ was.
“Ugh…” Xiao Yan sighed softly. He shook his head helplessly. Now
that things had progressed to this stage, he could only give it a try
regardless of how difficult it was to open the three veins. If he were to
give up practicing something that Xun Er spared no expense to leave for
him, he would have really wasted her effort.
Xiao Yan tossed aside the emotion within his heart. His mind gradually
became quiet as he entered his training condition a moment later.
Xiao Yan’s mind swiftly arrived at the three veins that needed to be
opened up after he entered his training mode. He eyed the three Qi Paths
which were like three blocked cylinders and sighed once again. It
appeared that he was going to have a headache…
Xiao Yan’s mind moved and a tiny thread of Dou Qi surged out from
within his body. Finally, it circulated a couple of times under Xiao
Yan’s control before it finally arrived at this remote Qi Path. After
which, it obeyed Xiao Yan’s orders and carefully invaded that tiny Qi
Opening one’s Qi Paths was an extremely painful thing. The intense pain
that occurred when Dou Qi cleared the Qi Path and expanded was not
something that an ordinary person could endure. However, the expected
intense pain and difficulty to widen the Qi Path did not appear when Dou
Qi was poured into that tiny Qi Path. Although the flow of Dou Qi was
extremely slow due to the tiny size of the Qi Path, Xiao Yan could
clearly sense that the blocked feeling inside the Qi Path was slowly
“What is going on?” Xiao Yan was somewhat stunned as he studied the
Qi Path that was being gradually unblocked. His heart was filled with
disbelief. Since when was opening up a Qi Path this easy?
Of course, at this very moment, Xiao Yan was naturally unaware of the
prolonged tug of war between the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ and the strange
liquid when he had entered into his near death state while he was
underground. The greatest victor during that tug of war was Xiao Yan’s
body. Regardless of whether it was his bones, Qi Paths, muscles, etc., in
his body, all of them had been completely refined during that tug of war.
Hence, any part inside Xiao Yan’s body was tougher than those experts
who had a strength similar to his.
It was also due to his Qi Paths having previously been refined that Xiao
Yan felt that opening up a Qi Path was this easy. This was similar to a
tunnel whose outline had already been roughly constructed by someone. All
the people who came after would only need to clear out some of the rock
fragments that remained within the tunnel.
If an ordinary person were to open their Qi Paths, it was likely that
their Qi Paths would have already burst from the pressure of the Dou Qi.
How would it be possible to have Xiao Yan’s progress?
Although Xiao Yan was uncertain why opening a Qi Path had become this
simple, this was something that did not hurt Xiao Yan even a little.
Hence, in his wild joy, Xiao Yan began to unceasingly direct Dou Qi to
strike this blocked Qi Path. This Qi Path, which he had never used, was
quietly expanded at a slow pace by his Dou Qi…
Although opening a Qi Path had become much easier because of the prior
refinement of the interior of his body, it was still a process that one
needed to adhere to the rules. After all, the vein was currently too
fragile. If one were to quietly use a little more force, one would cause
it to burst apart. This risk was something that even Xiao Yan did not
dare to take.
Therefore, when the opening of the vein within his body progressed at a
tortoise-like pace, the somewhat impatient Xiao Yan could only enter his
training condition and split his attention into two different areas…
No matter how slow or tortoise-like the pace was, there would ultimately
be a time when it arrived at its destination. The first Qi Path was
finally opened by him five days after he had entered the deep mountains.
He had formally took his first step in practicing the ‘Open Mountain
After having some experience from the first attempt, Xiao Yan was a
little more familiar with his remaining Qi Paths. Although his speed was
still similar to a tortoise moving, it would upset a person until he
threw up blood and died if one compared his speed with another.
The second Qi Path was also opened up by Xiao Yan without any incident
around ten days or so after the first vein was opened. This kind of
smooth training caused Xiao Yan to be so happy that he could not shut his
mouth. According to this speed, it was likely that he would be able to
completely finish the precondition of opening up the three Qi Paths
within one month. At that time, he would be able to formally practice the
‘Open Mountain Seal’ he coveted greatly.
Time quietly flowed by in the deep mountains. Perhaps Xiao Yan’s
reminder had some effect on Medusa. Nothing had come to disturb him ever
since he had entered his training condition. This enabled him to obtain
an extremely quiet training environment.
Exactly after one month, the young man on the mountain top who had his
eyes shut, suddenly opened them. A substance-like glow flashed through
his eyes before it gradually disappeared a moment later.
Xiao Yan slowly stood up from the huge rock. He raised his head and let
out a long breath. He had opened up three veins within a month. This kind
of speed was something that even he himself could not quite believe. It
was likely that this was quite a good result even when placed among Xun
“Since the Qi Paths have been opened… next, it should be the time to
formally practice the ‘Open Mountain Seal’!”
Xiao Yan laughed softly. His right hand formed an extremely strange hand
seal in front of him. The hand seal was pushed forward. This was
naturally superfluous without any Dou Qi to activate it. However, Xiao
Yan clearly understood that within a short period of time, the strength
that the hand seal would emit would likely shock even himself.
