Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-659
The mountain forest was lush, green. The peaks of the mountains pierced
into the clouds just like a blade, appearing to be majestic and
An enormous rock was extended out on a steep wall somewhere within the
mountain range. A black-robed, young man was seated cross-legged on it
with his eyes tightly shut. An enormous crimson medicinal caudron was
placed in front of him. A dark-green flame fiercely rose and fell within
the medicinal cauldron. If one were to look carefully, one could faintly
see that there was actually a cluster of colorful liquid slowly wiggling
within the flame.
The surface of the colorful liquid repeatedly emitted tiny bubbles while
it was grilled under the flame. Each time a bubble burst apart, the size
of the cluster of liquid would shrink slightly.
Of course, this kind of shrinking was extremely slight. It was to the
point that one would have a hard time discovering that the liquid was
gradually shrinking unless one observed it carefully. However, as this
little by little accumulation lasted for a period of time, the shrinking
was no longer in miniscule amounts.
With the colorful medicinal liquid becoming increasingly thinner, it
faintly revealed a slight black-colored thing that it was wrapping over.
At a careful glance, there was actually a dark-black ancient-looking ring
within the medicinal liquid!
Compared to before, this dark-black ring undoubtedly had an extra refined
glow hidden within it at this moment. The color on the surface had become
deeper and darker. When the glow on the surface of this ring flickered
occasionally, one could discover that the size of the liquid had shrunk a
little. Clearly, the pure medicinal strength within the medicinal liquid
was gradually being absorbed by the spirit that was slumbering within the
Awakening Yao Lao’s sleeping spirit was an extremely troublesome and
slow task. Xiao Yan had already prepared for this. Hence, Xiao Yan was
not overly anxious or uneasy that the ring still had no reaction after a
month had passed. He would occasionally open his eyes and stare at the
ring within the medicinal liquid. A long while later, he would let out a
soft sigh before he calmed himself and continued the refinement.
The quiet mountain range did not possess the liveliness of the outside
world. Some of the Magical Beasts that occasionally passed by this place
would flee in a miserable state because of the frightening pressure that
was faintly emitted from the mountain top. Hence, the surroundings of
this mountain peak were exceptionally quiet.
Time quietly flew by in silence. Without realizing it, two months had
flown by since Xiao Yan had entered the deep mountains. Xiao Yan had
guarded the medicinal cauldron by his side for most of these two months.
He would only occasionally leave for a short period of time.
With the flow of time and the unceasing burning of the Glazed Lotus Heart
Flame, the cluster of the colorful palm-sized medical liquid was now only
the size of a thumb. It was coincidentally just able to completely wrap
the dark-black ring within it. Moreover, its luster was the difference
between Heaven and Earth when compared to before. Clearly, most of the
medicinal strength within the medicinal liquid had been forced into the
ring under the burning flame…
Medusa was seated cross-legged on a rock at the top of the mountain. Her
tightly shut long eyes were slowly opened as she glanced indifferently at
Xiao Yan who was on the steep wall of the mountain. Her sleek, red lips
moved a little as a cold laugh softly sounded, “It has already been two
months. You should have reached your limit. If you were to continue to
struggle on, it is likely that someone else will have to come and rescue
Although Xiao Yan was some distance away, Medusa’s cold laughter still
managed to be clearly transmitted into the ear of the somewhat pale-faced
young man below.
Xiao Yan also slowly opened his eyes when he heard the voice floating by
the side of his ear. The Dou Qi within his body surged as he once again
maneuvered a wisp of dark-green flame and shot it out from his finger.
The flame was finally poured into the medicinal cauldron. Only after
doing all of this did he raise his head and asked a question with a smile
toward the mountain peak, “Why? Are you worried about me?”
“I was worried that I won’t be able to obtain the ‘Soul Recovery
Pill’ if you were to die!” The corner of Medusa’s lips curled as
she spoke coldly.
“Ke ke, you can rest assured that I am still able to continue enduring
this. Your medicinal pill will also definitely reach your hands.” Xiao
Yan’s somewhat pale-white face was pulled into a smile. He had
repeatedly exhausted his Dou Qi to activate the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame
and use his Spiritual Strength to perfectly control the flame for two
months. Xiao Yan might be able to endure such an exhaustion for a month.
However, if time were to drag on, fatigue would gradually appear. Such a
degree of squandering was something that even an expert from the Dou
Huang class could not afford, much less Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan did not continue to split his attention after speaking. He
continued to place all of his attention into the medicinal cauldron in
front of him.
Medusa knit her eyebrows as she watched Xiao Yan focusing his attention
on controlling the flame once again. She immediately muttered softly to
herself, “What does it have to do with me if he dies? I actually spoke
such words to him?”
Medusa shook her head in confusion. This totally did not match her
character. Although she said this with her mouth, her gaze would
occasionally glance below. Her manner appeared as though she was really
worried that Xiao Yan would fall head first down the cliff due to his
Time flew by. When the colorful medicinal liquid that wrapped around the
dark-black ring was only a thin layer, Xiao Yan’s body, which was
seated firmly on the huge rock, began to tremble a little. The dark-green
flame within the medicinal cauldron also began to flash in a volatile
manner. Clearly, Xiao Yan’s strength was about to be completely
exhausted after such a long period of refinement.
Medusa once again knit her brows tightly when she saw Xiao Yan’s
slightly swaying body. This fellow was really reckless. Although she
quietly scolded in her heart a faint seven-colored energy began to
gradually surge on the surface of her body.
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth tightly as he forcefully endured the waves of
fatigue and the giddy feeling that was transmitted from his head. His
eyes stared intently at the dark-black ring within the flame as he went
all out to drain the Dou Qi hidden within every part of his body. He had
a premonition that the time for Yao Lao to reawaken was not far away!
The Dou Qi remaining within his body swarmed out at an increasingly
slower pace as he repeatedly squeezed it out. In the end, it even began
to become intermittent, a sign of exhaustion. Moreover, Xiao Yan’s mind
was also completely replaced by fatigue and giddiness. His sight retained
traces of blurriness as the angles his body swayed gradually became
“Seeking your own death!”
Medusa grit her silver teeth, and softly scolded when she saw the swaying
Xiao Yan who might fall off the cliff at anytime. Her body moved forward
a little. From her manner, it seemed that she was prepared to act and
rescue this stubborn little fellow.
Xiao Yan’s vision became increasingly blurry. He clearly understood in
his heart that he had reached his limit. However, giving up at such a
Xiao Yan’s teeth bit his tongue. The intense pain braced Xiao Yan’s
mind a little. He immediately crazily circulated the ‘Flame Mantra’
Qi Method route, and the last wave of Dou Qi that was hidden deep within
his body was completely squeezed out by him. It crazily transversed his
body before pouring into the medicinal cauldron.
Xiao Yan’s vision finally turned from blurry to complete darkness when
the Dou Qi surged out from his finger. His head leaned forward and he was
finally unable to maintain his body’s stability. His body leaned
sideways and became like a wooden log as it rolled down from the smooth,
huge rock. Finally, he fell head first toward the edge of the cliff,
which was covered with clouds and fog.
Medusa could not resist cursing when she saw that Xiao Yan had finally
fallen head first from the cliff. Her lovely body moved forward and was
about to act to rescue him. However, her body had just gotten up when her
face became volatile, “Why should I rescue him? This kind of person
deserves to die!”
During the time Medusa was struggling within her heart, Xiao Yan’s
falling speed became faster and faster. From the looks of the situation,
it was likely that Xiao Yan would unluckily become a pile of minced meat
if there were any protruding huge rocks hidden in the fog.
Medusa’s eyes stared intently at Xiao Yan who had fallen into the
lingering clouds. An instant later, she finally clenched her silver teeth
abruptly. Her body shook and she turned into a seven-colored flowing
light that rushed down the mountain peak in a lightning-like manner,
appearing above Xiao Yan within a few flashes.
The colorful layer of medicinal liquid on the surface of the dark-black
ring within the crimson medicinal cauldron resting on the huge rock
finally merged into it just as Medusa made a move. The ring suddenly
shook intensely and an invisible ripple spread out in a wave-like manner.
It knocked on the internal wall of the medicinal cauldron and emitted a
clear gong-like sound.
The invisible ripple spread in an increasingly faster and fiercer manner.
In merely a couple of blinks, that intense sonic wave was emitted from
the medicinal cauldron before finally turning into loud thunder that
resounded across the mountain range. Wild wind blew wherever the sonic
wave spread, and a green-colored sea wave was formed above the sea of
trees before sweeping toward the edge of the sky.
The clear sound that suddenly erupted was naturally also sensed by
Medusa. However, she did not have the time to bother about it at this
moment. She lowered her head and studied Xiao Yan, who was in a close
proximity to her. Another flicker appeared within those long pupils that
were filled with a wildness. Her expression changed repeatedly. This
complicated woman had actually begun a struggle of whether to rescue Xiao
Yan at such a time.
The first feeling that Medusa had toward Xiao Yan was that she wanted to
kill this disgusting fellow on the spot. However, deep within her spirit,
there was another thing that repeatedly resisted this kind of feeling.
Moreover, it even quietly urged her to lend a hand and rescue Xiao Yan.
The struggle continued for a moment and the glow within Medusa’s eyes
once again stabilized. She clenched her teeth and said, “Bastard,
consider yourself lucky. I will personally take your life one year
Medusa extended her long arm as her voice sounded. Her delicate arm
firmly grabbed Xiao Yan’s robes. However, her expression suddenly
changed when she was about to bring him back up onto the cliff. She
immediately threw her palm toward the space behind her without any
The space where her hand landed fluctuated. A frightening energy ripple
immediately spread out before shaking the cliff wall by the side and
forming numerous crack lines.
“Who are you? Show yourself!” Medusa’s feet pressed on empty air.
Only then did she remove the force. Her pretty face turned cold as he
Her cry had just sounded when a strange suction force suddenly surfaced.
The unconscious Xiao Yan immediately left Medusa’s hand following the
tearing sound of cloth. Finally, he was received by an illusionary human
figure in a lightning-like manner while he fell before the both of them
rushed toward the sky.
“Queen Medusa, you need to ask if this old me agrees before you can
take the life of my disciple!”
The old cry was like furious rolling thunder that reverberated across the
sky. The powerful Spiritual Strength caused even an expert like Medusa to
change her expression.
