Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-662
Yao Lao also smiled as he saw Xiao Yan’s stunned expression. He also
knew just how shocking these three ingredients were to Xiao Yan, and was
thus not very surprised. He merely comforted, “It is extremely
difficult to get ahold of these things. Hence, I have said not to rush. I
am already very gratified that you have this thought. In any case, we
still have lots of time left. We can slowly find them.”
Xiao Yan’s expression gradually recovered. He rested for a moment
before laughing bitterly. He felt a giddiness in his head. The blood
essence of a rank 7 Magical Beast. This was equivalent to an extremely
powerful Dou Zong. Moreover, the essence blood was something that a
Magical Beast relied on to survive and grow. It was just like the fresh
blood and bones within a human body. Once this thing was drawn out from
the body of a Magical Beast, it would naturally immediately lose its
life. Hence, if one was to summarize in this manner, one must kill an
extremely powerful Magical Beast that could contend against an elite Dou
Zong if one wanted to obtain the blood essence of a rank 7 Magical
Beast… but Xiao Yan had not even met a Magical Beast of such a rank
even once since he was born, much less discussed killing it.
The skeleton of an elite Dou Zong… this ingredient also caused Xiao Yan
to be similarly speechless. An elite Dou Zong could roam unhindered over
the land. Most of those who could muddle on until this extent possessed
quite a strong faction. Once they were killed, it would either be the
case of them leaving nothing behind or that their corpse would be
severely hidden and protected. If anyone dared to touch the skeleton of
their ancestors, it was likely that they would bring everyone to come
after you with all their might even if there was a big gap between their
strength and yours. Hence, this thing was an extremely troublesome
The so-called ‘Bone Growing Blood Fusing Pill’ was naturally also not
some simple thing. A medicinal pill at the peak of the seventh tier was
likely something that Yao Lao could not guarantee he would succeed even
if he used all of his strength. There was no need to even mention the
various strange and rare medicinal ingredients needed to refine the
‘Bone Growing Blood Fusing Pill’. It was going to be unavoidably
enormous trouble to gather all these things.
Xiao Yan’s face carried a bitterness as he nodded.. He sighed, “I
will remember all these in my heart. If I get the opportunity, I will
definitely think of methods to gather all of these ingredients in the
Yao Lao smiled slightly and said, “It would naturally not be this
troublesome if one were to refine an ordinary body to accommodate a
spirit. However, the stronger one’s Spiritual Strength, the more
stringent the requirements of the body. Currently, my Spiritual Strength
is quite strong. Hence, if I don’t use a stronger body, it is likely
that my spirit would inflate the new body until it explodes after just
“However, I think that if you managed to gather all these medicinal
ingredients and successfully refine a body that could accommodate a
spirit in the future, it is likely that my strength would be stronger
than when I was at my peak once my spirit merges with the new body. After
all, my current Spiritual Strength is much stronger than back then.”
Yao Lao laughed.
Xiao Yan only felt a slight joy after hearing this. One could tell from
listening to the manner in which Su Qian and the others addressed Yao
Lao, that Yao Lao back then should have been a true elite Dou Zun. If one
were a little stronger than this level, would that not mean that one
would be an elite Dou Sheng that existed only in legends?
Yao Lao seemed to have guessed some of Xiao Yan’s thoughts when he saw
that joyous face of his. He immediately shook his head and said, “You
can stop daydreaming. Do you think that it is really so easy to ascend to
an elite Dou Sheng? If I really possessed that kind of strength, they
would also treat me seriously if I went to your little girlfriend’s
clan to help you propose marriage.”
Xiao Yan was startled. His heart immediately shook a little. From these
words of Yao Lao, he could vaguely sense the frightening strength the
mysterious clan that Xun Er belonged to. They would only treat him
seriously if Yao Lao reach the Dou Sheng class. In other words, it was
actually difficult for them to view him seriously by just relying on his
Dou Zun’s strength?
Xiao Yan knit his brows intently, and sighed in his heart. Just what clan
did that Xun Er belong to? It was actually strong enough to cause an
elite Dou Zun, who was enough to dominate the continent, to be this
“Looks like I still have an extremely long journey to travel…”
“Alright, little fellow, there is no need to think so much. With your
talent, I believe that you will sooner or later possess the ability to
truly be comparable to that little girlfriend of yours. Ha ha, a twenty
year old elite Dou Wang. One might not dare to say that such an
achievement is yours alone in the continent, but it is sufficient to look
down on a countless number of people.” Yao Lao smiled and comforted
Xiao Yan when he saw the rapidly changing face of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. He raised his head and stared at Yao Lao. His
mouth moved. That manner of his where he spoke intermittently was as
though he wanted to say something.
“I know that you are very interested in that clan of your little
girlfriend. However, there are some things that aren’t beneficial to
you if you are told now. I can only tell you that the clan of theirs is
one that has existed since the ancient times. They possess an extremely
frightening strength, and a special talent that an ordinary person has
difficulty matching… little fellow, the Dou Qi continent is very large.
The things that you have come into contact with now are but the corner of
an iceberg. In the future, you will gradually realize that this nearly
endless continent is even more interesting that you can imagine.” Yao
Lao seemed to have clearly understood what Xiao Yan wanted to ask.
However, he waved his hand and simply replied with a smile.
Xiao Yan slowly inhaled a deep breath of somewhat icy air. He nodded
slightly once he suppressed the restlessness within his heart. His face
also recovered the calmness of the past.
“You should calmly recuperate now. You have turned yourself into such
an exhausted state when you woke me up this time. If you had continued
without due care for the consequences, you might have hurt your strength
slightly.” Yao Lao patted Xiao Yan’s shoulders and spoke with a smile.
Xiao Yan nodded. He mused for a moment before he suddenly took out a
scroll and a strange-shaped jade bottle from his storage ring. There was
a medicinal pill that appeared to be agglomerated from fresh blood
quietly lying within the jade bottle.
“Huh? This medicinal bottle actually holds traces of an energy seal?
This medicinal pill…” Yao Lao’s gaze stared intently at the jade
bottle the moment it appeared. This was especially when his gaze swept
past the scarlet medicinal pill within it. A solemness gradually surged
onto his old face as he suppressed his voice and quietly asked.
“Teacher, this medicinal pill is something that you have mentioned to
me by chance back then… ‘Life Devouring Pill’.” Xiao Yan’s
expression also became quite solemn. His voice was also suppressed until
it was very soft. Only the two of them could hear it.
“It is indeed this thing…” Yao Lao’s eyes shrank. He slowly
inhaled a breath of cold air. He had already faintly guessed something
from the appearance of the blood-colored medicinal pill along with the
medicinal bottle that contained the traces of an energy seal.
“How did you manage to get ahold of this thing? According to what I
know, this medicinal pill had mysteriously disappeared with its creator
on the continent back then.” Yao Lao knit his brows. His gaze suddenly
turned to the scroll by the side as he said, “Don’t tell me that this
is the… medicinal formula?”
“Yes. This is the medicinal formula of the ‘Life Devouring
Pill’.” Xiao Yan nodded his head and said helplessly, “This thing
is something that my second brother had obtained deep in the mountains.
It is also because of this that I want to ask teachers for help.”
“Don’t tell me that your second brother has consumed this medicinal
pill?” Yao Lao smiled bitterly, and could not help but rub his somewhat
painful head when he saw the increased helplessness on Xiao Yan’s face.
He sighed, “This ‘Life Devouring Pill’ might be able to allow a
person to become an elite Dou Wang within an extremely short period of
time, but it is obtained by exchanging all of the remainder of one’s
life. The lifespan of a person who has consumed this medicinal pill would
be at most three years.”
“My second brother only has one year of life remaining.” Xiao Yan’s
expression sank as he spoke softly, “Back then second brother thought I
had died when I stuck underground. The clan’s revenge had yet to be
taken. In his despair, he could only risk his life and swallow the
‘Life Devouring Pill’.”
Yao Lao smiled bitterly. Why did all the offspring of the Xiao clan
possess such unyielding characters?
“Teacher, don’t tell me that there is really no means to undo the
effect of this ‘Life Devouring Pill’?” Xiao Yan’s gaze looked at
Yao Lao as he asked in a somewhat urgent and expectant manner.
Yao Lao descended into a silence as he studied Xiao Yan’s earnest gaze.
This ‘Life Devouring Pill’ was the masterpiece of that alchemist
grandmaster back then. The birth of the medicinal pill had caused quite a
great commotion. It would be quite difficult to undo its effect.
Yao Lao’s mused for a moment before finally opening his mouth in the
face of Xiao Yan’s gradually disappointed eyes. “Everything gives
birth to opposites. If there is a poison, there must be an antidote…
although I don’t have absolute confidence about whether it is really
possible to undo the effect of this ‘Life Devouring Pill’, we can
give it a try.”
Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he heard that Yao Lao did not reject all
hope. He handed the scroll and medicinal bottle to Yao Lao and sighed,
“Since that is the case, I will trouble teacher to help study this
thing. It would naturally be best if there is a way to undo it. If not…
let’s leave fate to the heavens.”
Yao Lao nodded. He received the two things and weighed them in his hand
before voicing his thoughts, “You must remember not to mention the
‘Life Devouring Pill’ to anyone. You should also remind your second
brother. Otherwise, it will bring about some trouble.”
“I have already informed second brother of this.” Xiao Yan smiled. He
was not some novice who was unaware of everything. His experience and
sophistication from training in the outside world far exceeded those of
Yao Lao was also reassured of Xiao Yan’s cautiousness and did not
inquire more about it. He smiled and said, “You have already accounted
for everything, it is time for you to rest and recuperate. Recover your
strength first. This is the most important thing.”
Xiao Yan also smiled and nodded after hearing this. He sat cross-legged
and slowly shut his eyes. A moment later, his breathing gradually became
low and deep. He inhaled and exhaled, forming a perfect cycle. The
surrounding air also fluctuated slightly as his breathing cycle was
formed. Immediately, an unceasing flow of energy surged out before it was
completely absorbed into the former’s body, filling up his exhausted
Yao Lao shook his head helplessly as he watched Xiao Yan enter his
training mode. He eyed the scroll in his hand, smiled bitterly and softly
spoke, “This fellow was actually even able to get his hands on the
medicinal formula for the ‘Life Devouring Pill’. However, it is
easier said than done to obtain a method to undo it…”
Yao Lao rubbed his somewhat painful head. His face was completely
dispirited. Being his teacher was not relaxing…
