Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-744
The lethal poison that was hidden all over the valley appeared to have
received a command as it completely vanished after the Little Fairy
Doctor left. This caused Xiao Yan, who wanted to undertake a retreat
within it, to quietly sigh in relief. He also knew that the former was
currently not that kind girl from back then. Moreover, her poison skill
was unique and unpredictable. Although he still believed within his heart
that she would not really kill him, it was a troublesome matter if he
were to make contact with these lethal poisons. This point was something
that Xiao Yan had clearly felt when he helped Nalan Jie expel the poison
in the latter’s body back then.
Xiao Yan dispatched a messenger bird to the capital after he had settled
down in the small valley. He briefly accounted for the position he was
located in order for Xiao Ding and the others to be able to send someone
to look for him should anything happen in the future.
After accounting for everything, Xiao Yan searched this small valley in
detail. The size of the valley was not very big but the various rare
medicinal ingredients that grew within it caused even the current him to
be a little moved. It was unexpected that this little valley grew so many
rare medicinal ingredients within it. If this news were to spread to the
outside world, it might caused many alchemist’s eyes to turn red with
envy. After all, the attraction of rare medicinal ingredients to an
alchemist was not much weaker than medicinal formulae and medicinal
Xiao Yan originally intended to chase all those Magical Beast within the
valley away. However, Zi Yan hurriedly stopped him. She knew that Xiao
Yan was about to undertake a retreat. These Magical Beast might become
her playmates during this period of time.
Xiao Yan naturally did not insist on having his way since Zi Yan liked
them. Moreover, he thought that if the valley possessed these Magical
Beasts, they would coincidentally be able to achieve the effect of
protecting it. Should anyone accidentally enter this valley, these
Magical Beasts, which could be considered extremely strong in the eyes of
an ordinary person, would be enough to frighten them off.
After he had settled down in the valley, Xiao Yan opened a small-sized
cave deep inside it. After which, he gathered medicinal ingredients for
nearly three days before carrying a heavy storage ring and entered into
the cave. Of course, this time around, he was not undertaking a retreat
but was refining medicinal pills.
The quantity of medicinal pills that he was currently refining was quite
great. Not only did he promise to give old Yin Gu and the two others
three ‘Mighty Huang Pill’ as a reward but he also needed to help Xiao
Li, Lin Yan, and the others refine ‘Dou Spirit Pills’ All of these
were not ordinary medicinal pills. Refining them was not only troublesome
but would also exhaust time. However, these were obviously not reasons
that would be able to stop Xiao Yan from refining pills.
Xiao Yan had also instructed Zi Yan and Medusa to avoid leaving the
valley as much as possible before he entered the cave. The energy within
the valley was much denser than the outside world and one would be able
to achieve double the effect with half the effort by training here.
Moreover, there were many spiritual medicines in this place. If Zi Yan
were to suddenly begin advancing her rank, this place would be able to
provide the greatest amount of guaranteed energy to her.
The big and small woman might have agreed to Xiao Yan’s instructions
with their mouth, but Xiao Yan did not know just what they were thinking
in their hearts. No matter what it was, however, Xiao Yan was rest
assured with Medusa’s protection. After all, a Dou Zong class expert
was sufficient to roam the Jia Ma Empire unopposed. Although this Magical
Beast Mountain Range had many powerful Magical Beasts, they did not pose
too much of a threat to Medusa.
Hence, despite knowing that the two of them were not people who would
remain peaceful, Xiao Yan still entered the mountain cave with peace of
mind. After which, he began his extremely burdened pill refinement
assignment that any ordinary alchemist’s expression would pale upon
Xiao Yan sat cross-legged on a rock within the somewhat dark, cool cave.
There was a smooth mirror-like stone platform beside him. At this moment,
many medicinal ingredients were neatly arranged on the stone platform.
These medicinal ingredients were all stored within jade boxes. A rich
medicinal fragrance seeped out from them. Finally, they gathered together
and an unusual medicinal fragrance immediately spread throughout the cave.
Xiao Yan beckoned with his hand and a crimson medicinal cauldron suddenly
appeared in front of him. After which, it landed heavily on the ground.
Its heavy weight caused even the cave to slightly tremble.
Xiao Yan mused for a moment after summoning the medicinal cauldron. Among
the two medicinal pill, refining the ‘Dou Spirit Pill’ was a little
easier for him and he had a higher chance of success. The ‘Mighty Huang
Pill’, on the other hand, was a genuine tier six medicinal pill. Even
with Xiao Yan’s current strength, he did not possess over a
fifty-percent confidence to successfully refine it. However, he was well
prepared this time around. Not only did he manage to plunder a large
amount of medicinal ingredients from the Primer clan but he had also
found quite a number of them within this mountain valley. With this
amount of medicinal ingredients, if he were to just ruthlessly use them
up, attempting to smash out three ‘Mighty Huang Pills’ should not be
too difficult even with a low success rate.
Xiao Yan chose to first refine the ‘Dou Spirit Pills’ after some
thought within his heart. It was better to choose the one that was easier
to refine while he was warming up. Although he was currently extremely
well prepared, these medicinal ingredients were also extremely valuable.
Even Xiao Yan would also feel heartache if he were to waste them for no
After making up his mind in his heart, Xiao Yan slowly inhaled a deep
breath and tossed out the distractions in his mind. He flicked his finger
and a wisp of jade-green flame rushed out. Finally it entered the
medicinal cauldron before transforming into a fierce flame that rose
When the flame within the medicinal cauldron grew increasingly stronger,
the temperature within the mountain cave immediately became hotter.
However, this naturally did not have even the slightest impact on Xiao
Yan. His eyes were staring intently into the medicinal cauldron. A moment
later, his expression abruptly became solemn. Both of his fingers moved
and a medicinal ingredient was grabbed between them. He gently threw it
into the medicinal cauldron.
After delivering this medicinal ingredient into it, Xiao Yan’s
difficult refinement session this time around had officially began!
Zi Yan and Medusa within the valley seldom entered to disturb Xiao Yan
after he entered the cave. Initially, the two people were still fine.
However, as the time that Xiao Yan used to refine pills increased, Zi
Yan, who had an active character, could not sit still. This was
especially after she had trained those Magical Beast in the valley until
they were like pets which resulted in her becoming unusually bored. On a
certain day, she succeeded in instigating Medusa. After which, the two of
them secretly snuck out of the valley. Hence, this Magical Beast Mountain
Range immediately became extremely chaotic.
With the help of her inborn special ability to sense those natural
treasures with dense energy, Zi Yan’s sight each time around was thrown
toward those treasures, which had the protection of many powerful Magical
Beasts. However, most of these treasures were successfully obtained with
the aid of Medusa’s might. Nevertheless, each time a treasure fell into
their hands, it would stir numerous crimson-eyed Magical Beast to crazily
chase after the two of them. The fiddling by one big and one small female
demons caused the mountain range, that had always been quiet, to be
repeatedly filled with roars each day, filling it with life.
An increasing number of natural treasures landed in Zi Yan’s hands with
the flow of time. All of these things that she obtained were treated as
sweets that she swallowed into her stomach without exception. After this
kind of plundering action continued for nearly half a month, most of the
powerful Magical Beasts in this Magical Beast Mountain Range had been
visited by Zi Yan and Medusa.
This vigorous plundering naturally resulted in stirring up everyone’s
anger. This Magical Beast Mountain Range did not lack some powerful
Magical Beasts. Their intelligence was not lower to that of a human.
Hence, many powerful Magical Beast began to gather together after
suffering losses a couple of times. Thus an unusually large lineup was
quietly formed within the Magical Beast Mountain Range.
This lineup with numerous Magical Beasts was met by Zi Yan and Medusa on
the second day when they acted once again. A surging fury suddenly
When Zi Yan and Medusa looked at the countless number of Magical Beast
that swarmed over like floodwater while carrying a roar that shook the
sky, even Medusa could not resist feeling a numbness on the skin of her
head despite her strength. She immediately grabbed Zi Yan and swiftly
This chase and escape nearly involved this entire section of the Magical
Beast Mountain Range. It was still a little better for Zi Yan and Medusa.
Those mercenaries who were hunting Magical Beast within the mountain
range suffered great misfortune. Everyone’s body turned icy-cold as
they looked at the beast tide that had come swarming over like
The wild retaliation of the beast tide caused this Magical Beast Mountain
Range to boil unusually. However, it was fortunate that Medusa was
cautious enough not to fly back to the valley. Instead, she brought Zi
Yan along and took a big detour around the mountain range. Only after she
was certain that she had got rid of all the Magical Beasts on her tail
did the two of them hurry back to the valley.
The two of them did not dare to carelessly leave the valley for a couple
of days after the event was over. Although the two of them were unafraid,
it was likely that Xiao Yan, who was refining pills, would be disturbed
if those crazy Magical Beasts were to discover this place. Should any
accident happen at that time…
Even Zi Yan could only extend her tongue when she thought of this. She
quietly stayed in the valley and played with those Magical Beast within
the valley that had been tamed by her. Medusa also sighed in relief when
she saw Zi Yan quieten down. If any accident were to occur, it was likely
that that fellow would become mad.
The usually lively Zi Yan began to show signs of something being amiss
after the two of them quietly remained in the valley for five to six
days. At first, only her words were reduced. Gradually, her face turned
unusually red and her body became boiling hot as though it was an oven.
The changes in Zi Yan naturally caused Medusa to pale in shock. However,
she did not understand all of these things, and thus was unable to
provide even the slightest help to Zi Yan. However, just when she was
hesitating about whether she should call Xiao Yan out, Zi Yan suddenly
descended into a slumber. A rich-purple glow surged out from her body
while she slept. Finally, it transformed into a ten-foot-wide purple
cocoon that wrapped around her body.
Medusa was startled after seeing this but ended up sighing in relief. It
seemed that nothing was amiss. Instead, this little girl had consumed too
many natural treasures during this period of time. The energy that was
gathered within her body was enough for her to advance in rank!
A serene fragrance was hidden within the lush green mountain valley.
Occasionally, there would be a good-sized Magical Beast passing through
this place. A low roar would suddenly appear, causing the valley to be
filled with life.
There was a rich-purple light hidden deep in a spot within the valley.
There was an enormous bright cocoon that was over ten feet wide within
the purple light. Although one could not clearly see the being within the
cocoon, the majestic energy that was contained within it indicated that
this thing was not ordinary.
