Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-658
There was hardly any trace of a person in the vast, deep mountains. The
main theme was the endless lush, green mountains. Occasionally, the roar
of a magical beast would resound across the mountain forest, frightening
away countless numbers of resting birds.
There was a huge rock that protruded from the mountain wall in the middle
of a steep cliff. The huge rock was frequently battered by the rain and
wind. Therefore, its surface was extremely smooth. There was even a layer
of luster faintly present on it. However, a black-robed, young man was
currently standing at that spot. His legs were like the roots of an old
tree that slowly gripped the enormous rock, causing his body to stand on
it without moving a little.
The black-robed, young man was naturally Xiao Yan since he had left Feng
City. There was likely going to be large activity when he woke Yao Lao
this time around. Hence, he would naturally be unable to do this in a
crowded place like Feng City. Hence, after Xiao Yan informed Xiao Li, he
and Medusa once again entered the deep mountains. In the endless, deep
mountains, the activity, regardless of how massive it was, would
completely disappear between the cover of the many mountains.
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept to the left and right of this precipitous
mountain peak. The quiet space was such that one even had difficulty
hearing the chirping of the birds. A moment later, he nodded his head
with satisfaction and raised it to the top of the cliff and cried out
“Cai Lin, I will have to trouble you. Don’t let anything disturb
Laughter was transmitted up. One could faintly see a graceful figure
standing on top of the mountain cliff. However, she appeared to act as
though she did not hear Xiao Yan’s cry and was too lazy to even give a
Xiao Yan was long used to this attitude of Medusa. Hence, he did not
display any expression. He knew that this woman might ignore him
verbally, but she would usually perform a task she had promised him to
the point that one could not pick on it. Xiao Yan was able to completely
rest assured with her protecting him by the side.
Xiao Yan crossed his legs and sat on the smooth huge rock. He slowly shut
his eyes as he forced his breathing and heart to enter into a calm, slow
rhythm. Only then did he flick his finger. A crimson-colored medicinal
cauldron once again fell and smashed heavily on the enormous rock,
causing it to tremble a couple of times.
Xiao Yan’s expression gradually turned solemn as he studied the
crimson-colored medicinal cauldron. The Serene Sea Storage Ring on his
finger flickered slightly. Immediately, medicinal ingredients came
flashing out of it. Finally, they appeared to experience a certain drag
force as they became suspended around Xiao Yan.
The appearance of these medicinal ingredients were all somewhat strange.
However the unusual scent they faintly emitted caused a person’s spirit
to gain a comfortable feeling similar to that of being soaked in a hot
The smile on Xiao Yan’s face grew richer as he sniffed the unusual
medicinal fragrances. All of these medicinal ingredients possessed good
effects for one’s Spiritual Strength.
Xiao Yan flicked his finger gently, and a wisp of Glazed Lotus Heart
Flame flashed and appeared. Finally, it played just like a fire spirit as
it danced around Xiao Yan’s finger in an agile manner.
“Go.” With a gentle cry, the wisp of Glazed Lotus Heart Flame shot
out and entered the medicinal cauldron through the fire outlet. The
instant it entered the medicinal cauldron, it suddenly expanded and
turned into a fierce flame that expanded.
The flame writhed within the medicinal cauldron. A moment later, Xiao
Yan’s long finger gently flicked toward a medicinal ingredient that was
suspended in front of him. In a skillful manner, it shot into the
The medicinal ingredient was wrapped by the dark-green flame the moment
it was shot into the medicinal cauldron. However, the terrifyingly high
temperature did not immediately destroy it in an avaricious manner.
Instead, that medicinal ingredient emitted a white-jade-like faint glow
while it was being burned, almost like it was attempting to isolate the
temperature of the flame.
Xiao Yan was not overly surprised that this medicinal ingredient
possessed the ability to retaliate the burning of the flame. He clearly
understood that these kinds of rare medicinal ingredients that could
recover Spiritual injuries were mostly able to rely on a kind of
instinctive ability to block harm from the outside.
For example this medicinal ingredient named ‘Snow Jade Bone Ginseng’
that was thrown into the medicinal cauldron might be named a ginseng, but
its shape was similar to that of a white, jade-like bone. This kind of
bone ginseng had a toughness that was no weaker than steel. It possessed
an extremely strong resistance to fire. If one wanted to use an ordinary
flame to refine it, one might not obtain much results even after doing it
for half a year or even a year.
Hence, Xiao Yan was not surprised that it could resist the grilling of
the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame. One must not possess an anxious heart when
refining such a medicinal ingredient. Everything must be in a progressive
cycle. This was the correct path…
Xiao Yan watched the fierce flame within the medicinal cauldron. A moment
later, he slowly shut his eyes. He knew that despite the Glazed Lotus
Heart Flame strength, attempting to refine this ‘Snow Jade Bone
Ginseng’ would at least require a couple of days…
Although Xiao Yan had already anticipated the fire resistance of the
‘Snow Jade Bone Ginseng’, he could not help but feel stunned when he
saw that the bone ginseng only began to melt on the third day. Medicinal
ingredients that were able to treat spirits were indeed different from
ordinary medicinal ingredients. Could a medicinal ingredient with such a
hardness still be considered a medicinal ingredient?
Xiao Yan calmed his heart and slowly refined it. Only on the fifth day
did that incomparably hard ‘Snow Jade Bone Ginseng’ completely melt
into a glob of snow-white viscous liquid.
Xiao Yan moved that snow-white viscous liquid to a spot in the medicinal
cauldron with a lower temperature to grill it with a slow flame. He
subsequently threw another medicinal ingredient that was similarly
difficult to refine into the medicinal cauldron. He once again began the
There was no concept of time in the mountains. Time quietly flew past
one’s fingers like flowing water. The suspended medicinal ingredients
in front of him were gradually refined into various colored medicinal
liquids within the medicinal cauldron one after another…
All the medicinal ingredients were finally completely refined around one
month after Xiao Yan entered the deep mountains. After which, he spent
another seven days in order to merge all of these medicinal liquids
Xiao Yan watched the cluster of viscous liquid that was emitting a faint
multicolored luster within the medicinal cauldron from the cliff. He
finally sighed in relief as though he had released a heavy burden.
Although he was not refining a medicinal pill this time around, it was
the longest time that Xiao Yan had spent in front of a medicinal cauldron.
His body had sat in front of the medicinal cauldron without moving for
over a month. He repeatedly maneuvered Dou Qi to supplement the flame
within the medicinal cauldron so that there was an adequate amount of it.
If Xiao Yan had not already advanced to the Dou Wang class and his
‘Flame Mantra’ Qi Method had not evolved to the Di Class Low Level,
this kind of high burden squandering would likely result in him falling
from this enormous rock all the way to the bottom of the cliff due to the
exhaustion of Dou Qi regardless of how strong his character was.
“I have finally completed it…”
Xiao Yan’s sleeves wiped off the perspiration on his forehead. His
mouth parted to reveal a white set of teeth. This one month test of his
endurance, like a worker maintaining a fire, had benefited him quite
greatly. Even without mentioning the successful merger of the medicinal
liquid, Xiao Yan could sense that through this one month of burning, he
was more practiced in his control over the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame,
which was the merger of the two kinds of ‘Heavenly Flames’ within his
body, when compared to before…
Although these kinds of pill refinement steps were tedious and exhausted
one’s Spiritual Strength, they had an extremely great benefit toward
training one’s control over a flame.
Xiao Yan rested for over ten minutes after completing the medicinal
liquid merger. Only after that did he once again brace his attention
before turning his gaze toward the ancient looking dark-black ring. He
hesitated for a moment before slowly removing it.
Xiao Yan held the ring gently in his hand. A moment later, he suddenly
clenched his teeth and tossed it with his hand. The dark-black ring was
thrown into the fiery fire within the medicinal cauldron in a skillful
The dark-green flame hurriedly swarmed forward when the dark-black ring
entered the medicinal cauldron. However, an invisible strength surged out
automatically from the ring just as these flames were about to approach
the ring. After which, this strength isolated the ring from the flame.
“Automated self defence? Looks like teacher’s ring is also not an
ordinary object.” Xiao Yan was startled when he saw the reaction of the
ring. He immediately smiled. With a flick of his finger, that colorful
viscous liquid tumbled about, and ended up wrapping the around dark-black
That dark-black ring did not resist this medicinal liquid, which
possessed quite the spiritual healing ability. Hence, it allowed the
liquid to drag and wrap around itself.
Xiao Yan smiled slightly when he saw that he had successfully wrapped the
dark-black ring in the colorful liquid. He immediately changed his hand
seal, and the feeble dark-green flame within the medicinal cauldron
appeared to have broken out in excitement as it emitted a ‘chi’ sound
and surged forward, sweeping the cluster of colorful liquid into it. That
frighteningly high temperature still caused the surrounding air to
gradually become distorted despite having the isolating effect of the
dark-red medicinal cauldron.
Under Xiao Yan’s control, the colorful liquid did not pose much
resistance to the dark-green flame. Its vicious surface began to
gradually form some air bubbles amid the frighteningly high temperature.
An invisible vapor would be suppressed and pass through the medicinal
liquid when an air bubble burst occasionally. Finally, it would quietly
merge into the dark-black ring!

Time slowly flowed by as the cluster of colorful liquid, which was
originally the size of a palm, gradually shrank. Clearly, the medicinal
effect of healing one’s spirit had already been completely vaporized
into the ring under the suppression of the surrounding high temperature,
healing the spirit that was in a slumber within it…
The medicinal liquid grew increasingly thinner. Under Xiao Yan’s joyful
gaze, a layer of faint glow that represented life gradually surged onto
the surface of the dark-black ring…
“Teacher, you have been in a slumber for two years. It’s time to wake
