Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-749
A black figure flew over the vast mountain forest in a lightning-like
manner. The pressure that was brought about by his high-speed flying
caused a long gully to form over the sea of trees below. It was a long
while later before the gully slowly disappeared.
The black figure was naturally the one who had helped the Bloody Battle
Mercenary Company settle some trouble. It was Xiao Yan. He was not
worried that He Gan would secretly use any underhanded tactics. This was
because he knew that all tactics were useless in front of absolute
strength. The small He clan might possess some reputation within the
northwestern part of the empire, but from the point of view of the Yan
Alliance, it was merely a faction that could barely catch the eye of the
alliance. It would not require too much effort to eliminate the He clan.
Hence, Xiao Yan calmly left after having resolved the trouble. He did not
leave anything behind when he left this time around. Ultimately, he did
not have a deep friendship with Ka Gang and the others. The favor of
providing Xiao Yan shelter back then was already repaid after Xiao Yan
rescued them twice.
Many thoughts flashed through Xiao Yan’s heart as his flying speed
suddenly rose. His speed was finally reduced after around ten plus
minutes. The fire wings on his back were flapped and his body charged
into the mountain valley hidden between some mountain peaks.
Xiao Yan sensed an ice-cold gaze sweeping over the moment his body
entered the valley. The gaze only became a little warmer after sweeping
over Xiao Yan’s face.
That gaze was naturally Medusa’s, who had remained guard in this place.
Hence, Xiao Yan did not mind it. His body moved and the next time he
appeared, he was already beside that enormous purple-colored light cocoon.
“Have you settled your matters?” Medusa raised her eyes and randomly
inquired when she saw Xiao Yan appear.
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He roughly mentioned the matter from earlier.
However, Medusa did not display much interest in this matter. It was
merely one Dou Wang and a mediocre mercenary company; therefore, it had
difficulty causing her to feel any curiosity.
“The fluctuation of your aura is becoming increasingly greater. The Dou
Qi in your body is also repeatedly seeping out. From the looks of it, you
need to hurry and undertake a retreat…” Medusa clearly paid more
attention to the situation of Xiao Yan’s body compared to the matter.
She frowned as she spoke. From the looks of her eyesight, the current
Xiao Yan was just like a sieve that was full of holes. Dou Qi was
repeatedly seeping out from these holes.
Xiao Yan bitterly smiled and nodded. The aura that he had unleashed
earlier caused the Dou Qi within his body to become increasingly more out
of control. Moreover, the most problematic thing was that the natural
energy had started to pour unceasingly into his body. This caused the
interior of his body to become more and more chaotic.
“I am pressed for time and plan to begin a deep retreat now. During my
retreat, I will seal off the mountain cave. I will leave Zi Yan up to
you.” Xiao Yan mused for a moment before immediately speaking.
“Yes.” Medusa nodded slightly. She immediately hesitated for a moment
and said, “I have yet to return to the Snake-People race during this
trip back to the Jia Ma Empire. I might return to the tribe once you exit
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He hesitated for a moment
before probing, “Do you need me to return with you?”
“There is no need to. Humans aren’t welcomed by our Snake-People
Race. It is unavoidable that there would be some unnecessary trouble if
you came along.” Medusa expression moved before her mouth uttered a
Xiao Yan rubbed his head in embarrassment when he saw this. He said,
“In that case, let’s forget about it. That… I will first pack up
the mountain cave and will begin the retreat in awhile. I will leave Zi
Yan to you.”
Medusa lowered her chin.
Xiao Yan did not delay any longer when he saw her nodding. The chaotic
Dou Qi within his body caused him to feel a great discomfort. Hence, his
body flashed and he rushed into the mountain cave. After which, he tidied
this place where he would undertake a long retreat amid a low explosive
Medusa sent Xiao Yan into the mountain cave with her eyes. She
involuntarily clenched her hand and her eyes changed rapidly. A moment
later, she let out a helpless sigh. This fellow seemed to be a little
afraid to follow her to the Snake-People Tribe…
The tidying of the mountain cave lasted for around ten plus minutes
before ending. After which, Xiao Yan, who was covered with rock dust,
coughed and walked out. He arrived at the spot where the enormous
purple-colored cocoon was and gently patted it. He laughed, “Little
girl, I will also be undertaking a retreat and will invite your Cai Ling
jie to look after you during this period of time. I hope that you will
have completed your evolution when I exit my retreat. Otherwise, I will
leave you in this wilderness and allow other Magical Beasts to consume
you like a tonic.
That light cocoon suddenly became a little brighter when Xiao Yan’s
voice sounded. It was as though that little fellow within it was opposing
Xiao Yan involuntarily laughed when he saw this. Medusa by the side also
helplessly shook her head. This fellow still had the mood to joke even at
Xiao Yan patted the light cocoon once more. He turned his head to Medusa
and said with a slight smile, “I’m afraid that it will be hard on you
this time around. I am also unaware just how long I will take during this
breakthrough. If I guess correctly, it will require at least half a
“Relax, it is only half a year…” Medusa pushed aside the black hair
on her forehead with her hand and spoke faintly, “As long as no special
situation occurs, I will guard the both of you until you successfully
Xiao Yan nodded quietly when he heard this. He inhaled a deep breath of
air and cupped his hands respectfully to Medusa. He suddenly turned
around and strode to the mountain cave. A moment later, his body entered
the darkness in the cave. Following the disappearance of his body, the
mountain cave abruptly emitted loud banging noises. Immediately, a pile
of huge rocks rolled and fell, firmly blocking the entrance to the cave.
Medusa’s indifferent expression finally revealed a loneliness as she
looked at the cave entrance which had turned into a pile of rubble. No
one knew just when Xiao Yan would be able to leave after undertaking this
retreat. Medusa was silent for a moment before sighing quietly. She
softly muttered, “Hopefully, you will be able to breakthrough
The mountain cave was not as dark as one would imagine. A couple of
moonlight stones had been placed on the cave walls. The faint gentle
light scattered throughout the cave. It was neither too glaring nor did
it appear too dark.
Xiao Yan sat cross-legged on a green rock. This green rock clearly
contained some jade fragments and it felt cool when he sat on it. It
contained a certain benefit in ensuring one’s alertness.
Xiao Yan glanced at this green rock before he suddenly recalled the
green-colored fire lotus back then. Training atop it could not only
enable one to increase one’s absorption speed but it also possessed the
benefits of an initial refinement. It was really an ultimate helper in
training. Unfortunately, it had been destroyed by the ‘Fallen Heart
Flame’ while he was underground.
Xiao Yan let out a bitter laugh. He let out a long sigh before his hands
immediately formed a seal. In merely the time one took to breathe, he had
entered his training state without any obstacles.
The situation within his body appeared in his mind once he entered the
training condition. He looked at the torrent-like Dou Qi that was
galloping within his veins in a chaotic manner. He helplessly shook his
head. It was fortunate that this body of his had undergone the refinement
of spiritual medicines and ‘Heavenly Flames’ many times. Otherwise, a
Dou Qi uprising of this degree would at the very least cause him to feel
a pain deep within his bones.
Xiao Yan slowly tossed the distractions from his mind as his mind began
to manage the uprising of Dou Qi within his body. With the help of his
powerful Spiritual Strength, this Dou Qi, that was surging about
randomly, was chased into a couple of Qi Paths within a short period of
time. The Dou Qi followed the route of the ‘Flame Mantra’ and was
swiftly circulated. While it was circulating, a strange feeling, that
appeared to exist within his spirit, slowly appeared in Xiao Yan’s
The surrounding natural energy outside of the cave began to surge wildly
when this unique feeling had invaded Xiao Yan’s heart. It swiftly
rotated before forming a small spiraling funnel in the air above Xiao
Yan’s head. The smaller side was connected to Xiao Yan’s temple as it
poured that enormous wild and violent energy into Xiao Yan’s body.
Xiao Yan immediately frowned within his heart following the pouring in of
such an enormous amount of energy. The density of the energy within the
valley had somewhat exceeded his expectations. It was unexpected that it
was this strong at the start.
Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of air. His mind moved, and a jade-green
flame suddenly appeared without any forewarning, completely wrapping
around his body. After the jade-green flame appeared, it did not have the
time to emit its temperature when it began to wiggle slowly under Xiao
Yan’s command. Finally, the jade-green flame gradually transformed into
an invisible flame. It was surprisingly the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’.
The ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ completely wrapped around Xiao Yan’s body,
appearing like a layer of fire clothes. The speed of the wild, violent
energy from the surroundings, which had been pouring wildly into Xiao
Yan’s body, immediately paused. Under the protection of the ‘Fallen
Heart Flame’, that somewhat mottled natural energy would be refined
once by the special effect of the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ after passing
through it. In this way, the pressure within Xiao Yan’s body was
immediately greatly reduced.
Energy whistled within the mountain cave. Colorful mottled energy strands
intertwined with each other. Bright, beautiful colors radiated within the
cave, allowing it to appear exceptionally beautiful. At the edge of the
countless energy light was Xiao Yan, who was sitting cross-legged.
The advancement from a Dou Wang to a Dou Huang was not an ordinary
matter. The advancement to this class required an unusually great amount
of energy, just like Zi Yan. Such a majestic amount of energy was
naturally not something that could be achieved within a short period of
time. Hence, one could only rely on accumulating energy for a long time
in order to complete the transformation process.

The current Xiao Yan already possessed the qualifications to advance to
the Dou Huang class. Hence, the current him only required sufficient
energy for him to advance. Once he had completed the gathering of energy,
advancing to the Dou Huang was a matter that was easy to achieve!
The only drawback was that this advancement would require quite a long
period of time…
