Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-710
Xiao Yan gradually became cold and quiet after hearing Yun Shan’s cold
words that were filled with killing intent. Powerful jade-green Dou Qi
curled and rose from his body like a flame and immediately encased his
Skyfire Three Mysterious Change. He had not used this ever since Xiao Yan
had come out from under the grounds of the Jia Nan Academy. Currently,
the ‘Heavenly Flame’ within his body was merged from the ‘Green
Lotus Core Flame’ and the ‘Fallen Heart Flame.’ The strength this
Secret Technique could procure was entirely dependent on the strength of
the ‘Heavenly Flame’. Hence, now that Xiao Yan had once again used
it, the strength that it increased to was naturally much greater than
when he used it back then.
Back when Xiao Yan was within the Dou Ling class, he was able to rely on
this Secret Technique to fight with Liu Qing, Lin Xiuya, and other people
at the peak of the Dou Ling class or even those expert Dou Wangs. Hence,
after he had used the Skyfire Three Mysterious Change, the strength on
his surface was no longer inferior to that of a four or five star elite
Dou Huang. Adding this to the uniqueness of the ‘Flame Mantra’ as
well as his physical body which was refined by many spiritual medicines,
the strength that his powerful Dou Qi could unleash was sufficient to
contend with someone at the peak of the Dou Huang class!
Xiao Yan flicked his finger and an enormous Heavy Xuan Ruler surfaced in
his palm. The heavy weight caused Xiao Yan’s hand to sink slightly
before he swiftly recovered. After having so many years of getting used
to it, the weight of the Heavy Xuan Ruler did not pose much of an
obstacle to Xiao Yan.
Although the suppression of the Heavy Xuan Ruler on the circulation of
Dou Qi within his body would cause someone’s fighting strength to be
reduced slightly, this drawback had already been reduced until it almost
had no effect after so many years of getting used to it. Hence, it
naturally did not have much of an impact on Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan did not split his attention by even a little after hearing the
intense energy explosion that was transmitted from the distant sky. His
gaze blinked as it locked onto Yun Shan in front of him. His feet curled
slightly and became just like a fierce hunting lion, where his shaking
muscles hid an explosive strength.
Yun Shan smiled as he looked at Xiao Yan’s cautious manner as though he
was faced with a powerful enemy. His sleeves shook and the soft cloth he
wore had gained a hardness that was not inferior to steel after Dou Qi
was poured into it. If one’s strength had reached the level of a Dou
Zong, almost every portion of one’s body, including even a strand of
hair, would be able to become a sharp killing weapon.
“Come, allow this ancestor to take a look and see just what kind of
support you have to actually dare to return once again.” The deep-green
energy in his palm rotated swiftly in a swirl as Yun Shan laughed in a
dense, cold voice.
Xiao Yan’s face was expressionless, and he did not say a single word. A
dense bright silver glow swiftly appeared on his feet. His body trembled
Yun Shan narrowed his eyes and looked at the unmoving Xiao Yan on the
opposite side. The finger under his sleeves moved, and with a cold
laughter, he suddenly waved his sleeves. Immediately, it carried a
terrifyingly sharp wind that viciously hacked through a certain part of
A hard steel-like sleeve cut through the air. Just before it reached a
certain part of the air, it fluctuated suddenly and a black figure
strangely appeared. The heavy ruler carried a ferocious strength and
unceremoniously smashed violently against the sleeve. The two made
contact in mid-air and a thunder-like muffled sound immediately resounded
across the land. Ripple-like force swiftly spread out and the air
vibrated slightly as it spread.
Yun Shan’s arm trembled when the two collided as it shed all the force
it received. That black figure, however, repeatedly took a couple of
steps back before it stabilized and revealed itself. That person was
surprisingly Xiao Yan who was supposed to be on the other side.
“Your speed is indeed fast but that is merely only useful against an
expert Dou Huang. Against me…” Yun Shan looked at Xiao Yan who had
clenched his five fingers tightly before at his back. The afterimage that
Xiao Yan had left behind in that place had scattered until only a faint
image was left. Yun Shan could not help but shake his head and laugh
“Is that so? What about this?”
Xiao Yan glanced indifferently at this old man who was quite arrogant. A
low snort was emitted from his throat before his hand seal suddenly
changed. A purple-black glow immediately appeared on his back. A pair of
substance-like purple-black wings appeared once again.
This pair of purple-black wings followed the jade-fire wings as they
extended out. That manner was as though the fire wings were wrapped by a
layer of black wings.
This pair of purple-black wings was naturally the Purple Cloud Wings that
Xiao Yan had not used for a long time. Ever since he had advanced to the
Dou Wang class, the flying speed of the wings that were formed from Dou
Qi had far exceeded that of the Purple Cloud Wings. Hence, he had not
used this kind of flying Dou Technique for a long time. However, this did
not mean that it had lost its use. Being able to be called an extremely
rare Dou Technique on the continent, it naturally did not only have such
little ability. Its other effect was the reason that caused its value to
The effect was superimposition!
The so-called superimposition was just as its name suggested. It was to
overlap two different things together. This was the case for the flying
Dou Technique. Once one’s strength had reached the Dou Wang class, one
would be able to superimpose the two kinds of wings together. The speed
that this kind of superimposition could produce naturally far exceeded
that of an ordinary pair of Dou Qi wings. The only disadvantage was that
it consumed quite a lot of Dou Qi. Otherwise, if it was used to cover
distances quickly, that speed would truly allow one to feel what was
called chasing the stars and the moon…
The superimposition of the wings was similar to the Skyfire Three
Mysterious Change in that it was also displayed by Xiao Yan for the first
time after his strength had soared. However, the shock that this kind of
superimposition brought could be somewhat seen from the surprise that
appeared on Yun Shan’s face.
One could unceremoniously say that with the superimposition of the wings
and a Di Class Low Level agility Technique like the Three Thousand
Lightning Movement, Xiao Yan’s speed would once again soar to a new
level. This kind of speed was something that even someone of Yun Shan’s
ability would not dare to easily underestimate!
After the superimposition of the wings, the pair of Dou Qi wings on Xiao
Yan’s back had turned from jade-green to a blackish-green color. The
wings were flapped and numerous rays of light lingered on them. Although
it was a little less beautiful compared to the earlier jade-green fire
wings, the deep, restrained color caused one to not dare to underestimate
The blackish-green wings were flapped slowly and a substance-like wind
lingered over Xiao Yan’s entire body before scattering with a whistle.
Xiao Yan only smiled after sensing that his body had suddenly become much
lighter than before. He looked at the gradually weakening smile on Yun
Shan’s face and said, “Old dog Yun Shan, do you still dare to say
that it is useless now?”
Xiao Yan did not give the slightest amount of time for Yun Shan to reply
after saying those words. The wings on his back were flapped abruptly and
he immediately disappeared amid the faint sound of rolling-thunder. He
was surprisingly above Yun Shan’s head the next time he appeared.
Xiao Yan held the heavy ruler tightly with both hands. He let out a stern
cry and the heavy ruler gained a mountain-breaking momentum as it cut
through the sky and hacked down toward Yun Shan’s head.
This attack by Xiao Yan was void of any fancy moves. All it possessed was
a surging strength. Under the pressure of this strength, all the air that
was half a meter below the ruler was suppressed until it scattered in all
directions, resulting in a vacuum area forming as the heavy ruler swung
“Your speed is still alright but this strength is really
insufficient!” Yun Shan coldly laughed as he looked at the heavy ruler
that was swiftly expanding in his eyes. He clenched his fist tightly and
immediately gave Xiao Yan a punch across the air!
When his punch was thrown forward, an arc immediately surfaced in the air
in front of him. An invisible air cannonball swiftly took shape before it
finally carried a sharp sound that resounded through the air. It suddenly
shot forward and collided with Xiao Yan’s heavy ruler.
The heavy ruler was around half a meter from Yun Shan’s head when it
collided with the invisible cannonball. The rebound force that was
transmitted to the heavy ruler shook it until it repeatedly trembled. If
Xiao Yan’s strength had not been similarly quite great, it was likely
that this attack would have already thrown the heavy ruler out of his
Xiao Yan’s body trembled, and completely resolve the force that was
being transmitted from the ruler. Xiao Yan did not withdraw even a
little. The wings on his back were flapped as he transformed into a black
line and entered Yan Shun’s side. At the same time, he suddenly
tightened his right hand and his arm shook in a strange manner. A
powerful force swiftly agglomerated on his fist. An instant later, it
smashed toward Yun Shan’s chest in a Techniqueful manner.
A low, deep voice was transmitted from Xiao Yan’s mouth. The wind on
his fist suddenly soared and the frightening strength was something that
caused even someone of Yun Shan’s ability to raise his eyebrows
Although Xiao Yan’s speed was extremely fast. Yun Shan, being an elite
Dou Zong, was naturally not weak. At such an urgent time, his feet
violently stomped down and the sea-like surging Dou Qi within his body
immediately surged in front of his body. In the blink of an eye, it
agglomerated and formed a deep-green viscous energy liquid on his body.
Xiao Yan’s fist carried a frightening force as it violently smashed
against the viscous energy liquid. The two collided and merely emitted a
slight sound. The frightening strength on Xiao Yan’s fist swiftly
scattered as though it was swallowed completely.
“You already used this move three years ago…” Yun Shan laughed
coldly when he saw the surprise that flashed across Xiao Yan’s face.
“This similar move can also cause you to feel uncomfortable!” Xiao
Yan also laughed coldly. His arm suddenly twisted and a bone cracking
sound was swiftly emitted. His fist violently trembled!
A hidden force swiftly surged out like an undercurrent as the fist shook.
It immediately passed through the viscous liquid like defense and
exploded like a bomb on Yun Shan’s clothes…
Yun Shan’s expression gradually became dark and cold as his body firmly
received the hidden force of the attack by Xiao Yan. His chest shrank and
it beat suddenly. A majestic force erupted out from all directions and
the first one it struck was Xiao Yan who was the closest to him!
Xiao Yan’s footsteps landed in the empty air and the wings on his back
also flapped. It was a long while later before he shed the force away. A
muffled feeling was also transmitted from Xiao Yan’s chest.
Yun Shan’s gaze was dark and cold as he looked at Xiao Yan who was
swiftly withdrawing. He slowly lowered his head and looked at the
tattered robes at his chest area. The torn robe revealed his chest where
a bright-red fist mark was imprinted on it at this moment. Clearly, it
was left behind by Xiao Yan earlier.
“Ke ke, good. Very good. You are the first person who has left behind a
fist mark on my body ever since I advanced to the Dou Zong class…”
Yun Shan’s face completely turned dark and cold as he looked at the
fist mark. A killing intent that caused a person’s heart to feel cold
gradually spread out from his body.
“Since you are able to reach this stage, this ancestor shall allow you
to see what is an elite Dou Zong!”
