Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-730
Xiao Yan stayed within a chamber while the outsider world was in an
uproar over the matter regarding the Misty Cloud Sect. He put in all his
effort to heal his body’s injuries as soon as possible without
receiving any sequelae.
The injuries that Xiao Yan received this time around were more serious
compared to any other time. Hence, even with his strong physical body and
his knowledge in alchemy, attempting to fully recover still required him
to spend quite a long period of time. Xiao Yan did not appear frustrated
because of this. Nothing wrong could happen during something like
recuperation. Otherwise, his situation would be even worse if he added
injuries on top of injuries within his body. For someone with Xiao
Yan’s strength, it was not frightening to receive some injuries. What
was frightening was when injuries left behind a sequela that posed an
enormous hindrance toward him when he attempted to charge to a higher
However, this kind of worry was not considered a big matter for Xiao Yan.
Being an alchemist, he knew just how he could use the safest method to
allow himself to gradually recover. All he needed was some time…
A black-robed, young man was seated on a rock bed in a quiet chamber
within the Xiao clan. Both of his hands formed a seal and his breathing
was slow and long. The surrounding air would ripple each time he inhaled
and exhaled. Immediately, an energy that was visible to the naked eye
followed his breathing and swiftly entered his body…
The inhalation and exhalation of energy continued for nearly an hour.
Only then did Xiao Yan slowly open his eyes. A faint fire glow slowly
rushed through his dark-black eyes before it immediately disappeared. His
black pupils gradually became as calm as a rippless old well.
Xiao Yan’s finger rubbed his ‘Serene Sea Storage Ring’ as he gently
exhaled a breath of air. A sleek, round dark-green medicinal pill
appeared in his hand. A medicinal fragrance that caused one to be
intoxicated spread out the moment the medicinal pill appeared. One’s
spirit would be braced slightly if one were to inhale it into their body.
This medicinal pill was named ‘Yuan Recovery Pill’. It was a kind of
healing medicine. However, its tier was quite high with it being a tier
five pill. This medicinal pill was specially used to treat some serious
injuries. Moreover, due to the gentle medicinal effect, it would not
create even the slightest damage within one’s body. It could really be
called the ultimate medicinal pill to treat serious injuries. However,
due to the medicinal pill being of quite a high-tier, it was quite
troublesome to refine it. An ordinary expert would have difficulty
receiving such a treatment even if he were to be seriously injured. It
was fortunate that Xiao Yan was an alchemist, a tier six alchemist at
that. One who could refine a tier six medicinal pill. Otherwise, one
would have to spend quite a bit of effort to beg for this kind of
Xiao Yan carelessly flicked the medicinal pill into his mouth. It melted
when it entered his mouth and transformed into a warm energy that slowly
seeped into one’s body. Finally, it moved along his four limbs and
hundreds of bones as it swiftly spread, causing Xiao Yan’s entire body
to be filled with a warm feeling. The throbbing pain that had been
transmitted from his Qi Paths, which were originally injured, had
Xiao Yan flipped his hand once again after swallowing the ‘Yuan
Recovery Pill’. A jade bottle that contained a bright-red medicinal
liquid appeared in his hand.
Xiao Yan opened the sleeves on his right hand and revealed it.
Originally, this hand had been cracked opened. However, during this
period of time where Xiao Yan was carefully recuperating, the torn bone
had slowly healed. However, just relying on the Dou Qi to keep it warm
was not possible to completely heal it to its previous condition. One
would also need other rare medicines that could replenish the bones in
order to do so.
The jade bottle tilted slightly and the bright-red medicinal liquid
flowed out. Finally, it poured over Xiao Yan’s right hand. The moment
the medicinal liquid made contact with his hand, an unusual ‘Chi Chi’
sound was emitted. The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth also twitched, and
the heat caused his entire hand to appear as though it had been placed in
Although waves of searing pain were transmitted from Xiao Yan’s hand,
Xiao Yan did not panic. He knew that this was a normal condition. With a
flick of his finger, a jade piece appeared in his hand before he
carefully spread the bright-red medicinal liquid. Finally, his entire
right wrist was covered with the bright-red medicinal liquid.
Within a short couple of breaths after the medicinal liquid was parted,
it moved along his pores and entered his body. The bones in Xiao Yan’s
hand also transmitted waves of numb-feeling at this moment.
“This ‘Nine Ganoderma Bone Mending Cream’ does indeed have quite a
good effect…” Joy flashed across Xiao Yan’s face as he sensed the
numb feeling transmitted from his bones. He could clearly sense the bones
in his hand swiftly healing. The weak-feeling that he felt when he
clenched his fist in the past also quietly withdrew. Replacing it was a
feeling of strength!
Xiao Yan only ceased the actions of his hand after waiting for the
medicinal liquid’s effects to be completely unleashed. He stored the
jade bottle into his storage ring, looked at his red right hand and
smiled. According to this speed, it was likely that the broken bones in
his arm would completely recover after applying it a couple more times.
“I have recovered around fifty-percent to sixty-percent of the Dou Qi
in my body. However, this amount of Dou Qi is comparable to
seventy-percent to eighty-percent of my Dou Qi in the past. It seems that
I really did obtain wonderful benefits from this big battle. It is just
that I am uncertain whether or not I will come into contact with the
barrier of the Dou Huang class once all of my Dou Qi is recovered.”
Xiao Yan softly muttered as he sensed the powerful Dou Qi that was
flowing within the Qi Paths in his body.
Xiao Yan mused for a moment while speaking to himself. He suddenly
clenched his hand and a cluster of jade-green flames appeared on his hand.
Xiao Yan’s other hand flicked as his gaze stared intently at the
cluster of ‘Glazed Lotus Core Flame’. The dense white fire seal on
his forehead emitted a slight hot flow. Immediately, a white flame
emitted a ‘chi’ sound and rose from within Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan was startled as he looked at this cluster of dense white flames.
His hand gently rubbed the white fire seal on his forehead and sensed the
temperature within before sighing in relief. Yao Lao had mentioned that
as long as the fire seal still existed, it meant that he was still alive.
From the looks of it, the situation that Xiao Yan dreaded the most did
“Teacher, rest assured that I will raise my strength as quickly as
possible and rescue both father and you!” Xiao Yan clenched his fist
tightly. A fierce glint flashed in his eyes as he spoke within his heart.
The ‘Heavenly Flame’ on both of his hands swiftly disappeared as his
mind moved. His gaze once again landed on that dark-black ring. The ring
was connected with Yao Lao’s spirit and was where he rested in the
past; therefore, Xiao Yan was unable to enter it. However, now that he
had the essence body of the ‘Bone Chilling Flame’, Xiao Yan was also
able to control this ancient black ring as he wished.
A layer of faint dense white flames surfaced on his finger. He gently his
rubbed over the dark-black ring, and his Spiritual Strength entered into
the space within the ring without any obstruction.
The space within this dark-black ring was something that even the high
grade ‘Sea Serene Storage Ring’ on Xiao Yan’s hand had difficulty
comparing to. Of course, the most valuable thing was not this ring but
the many things that were stored within the ring.
Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Strength swiftly swept over the interior of the
storage ring. His expression was somewhat dull. Within the storage ring
was all that Yao Lao had accumulated in his lifetime. Medicinal Formulas,
Qi Methods, Dou Techniques, and some other strange things were piled
inside it. A wide range of things were piled together, causing his eyes
to be dazzled.
Xiao Yan randomly flipped some of the Qi Methods and Dou Techniques. He
was once again speechless to discover that it was extremely difficult to
find any low class items within them. The lowest class of Qi Methods and
Dou Techniques were all at the Xuan Class Low Level. Xiao Yan actually
even saw some Di class Qi Methods and Dou Techniques upon detailed
observation. However, it was obvious that there were very few items of
this class. After counting, the combined number of them did not exceeded
Despite this, the things that were hidden here already caused Xiao Yan to
be astounded. This was really a treasure repository that was sufficient
enough to cause a countless number of people to flock over in doves.
Fortunately, only he alone was aware of these things. Otherwise, anyone
who possessed so many high class Qi Methods and Dou Techniques would
definitely invite the envy of a countless number of people.
Xiao Yan withdrew his Spiritual Strength after roughly flipping through
the space. A reel that was completely jade-like was taken out while he
His hand played with the jade-green scroll in his hand. After observing
it with his spiritual strength earlier, he was already aware that this
was the method to resolve the ‘Life Devouring Pill’ that was within
Xiao Li’s body that Yao Lao had left behind.
If one counted the time, time was almost up for Xiao Li since the moment
that he swallowed the ‘Life Devouring Pill’ until now. Therefore,
Xiao Yan had to maximize his time to resolve this matter. Otherwise, it
was likely that Xiao Li would instantly die. At that time, forget about
Xiao Yan’s own pain, he did not even know how to account to his big
brother. Until now, the two of them had not brought up this matter to
Xiao Ding. This was because they knew that given Xiao Ding’s temper, it
was likely that he would end up viciously reprimanding the two of them if
he were aware of these matters.
Xiao Yan slowly pulled opened the scroll. The bold and vigorous words,
that caused Xiao Yan to feel somewhat familiar, appeared in his eyes,
causing him to sigh softly.
“Little fellow, the ‘Life Devouring Pill’ has a medicinal effect
that is too overbearing. Even I have difficulty completely eliminating
it. However, there is no need to feel disappointed. It is not that there
is no solution. The ‘Life Devouring Pill’ uses a person’s life
force to obtain strength. Since we cannot undo it, we should raise the
life force of the person consuming the medicinal pill. In this way, it
would enable the person who consumed the medicinal pill to extend his
life for a period of time. Of course, this is merely a temporary
expedient. If you want to completely eliminate it, it would require the
consumer to breakthrough to the Dou Huang class during his remaining
life. Breaking through to the Dou Huang class would truly enable one to
resolve the ‘Life Devouring Pill’!”
Xiao Yan’s gaze looked over the words on the scroll once over
completely. A moment later, joy surged over Xiao Yan’s face.
Teacher’s method was not too complicated. Since the ‘Life Devouring
Pill’ is supported by lifeforce, it is possible to use medicinal pills
that could raise one’s life force to extend second brother’s life.
Whether Xiao Li would be able to breakthrough to the Dou Huang class
could only be seen in the future.
Although this method was simple, it included a big problem. It was that
the medicinal pills that could raise one’s life force were very rare.
It was difficult to find. However, this was not some overly difficult
thing for Yao zhu-zhe, who was renowned throughout the continent.
TL: zun-zhe – a respectful form of address for a Dou Zun.
Xiao Yan’s gaze shifted down slowly. Finally, it paused on the last
portion and his heart heaved a long sigh of relief.
“Deep Green Longevity Pill, a tier six medicinal pill that is able to
raise one’s lifespan by nearly ten years. One individual can only
consume one pill in their lifetime. The refining ingredients, Deep Green
Fruit, King Longevity Starch, Ten Thousand Years Vine…”
