Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-750
The concept of time was quite vague within the mountain forest. It was
even more so within the quiet valley.
At this moment, one month had already passed since Xiao Yan had begun his
retreat. However, there was not the slightest commotion within the
valley. Even the enormous purple-colored light cocoon, that Zi Yan had
transformed into, was still emitting a bright glow at a steady pace.
There was not the slightest sign of her breaking the cocoon to come out
of it. Medusa was also quite helpless in the face of this. She had
somewhat underestimated the immensity of the energy that Zi Yan needed to
Medusa fondled her chin as she sat cross-legged on an enormous rock. Her
gaze paused on the light cocoon for a moment before involuntarily turning
to the cave covered by a countless number of rock fragments. She could
not help but sigh softly when she saw that there was still not even a
little activity there.
Xiao Yan’s aura had become partially invisible three days after he took
the retreat. After a couple of days, his aura was completely hidden. Even
with Medusa’s strength, she could only vaguely sense the slight aura
within the valley if she used all her strength. She knew that the current
Xiao Yan was experiencing a period of undertaking the correct path from
the peak of the Dou Wang class into the Dou Huang class. The moment his
aura truly disappeared, he will have successfully advanced to an elite
“Ugh, these two fellows really test one’s patience…” Medusa
helplessly sighed. She could only withdraw her gaze and slowly shut her
eyes as she also entered her training mode. She could only use training
to pass time under the dull task of waiting and protecting. Otherwise, it
would truly test one’s patience to the extreme.
The days within the valley passed by in this manner one after another.
They swiftly flowed past without any great changes. Any noise from the
outside world had difficulty spreading to this place. This provided Xiao
Yan and Zi Yan the quietest environment to advance.
Some fluctuations appeared amid these quiet days around two months after
Xiao Yan’s retreat. The source of this change was due to Xiao Yan.
Medusa was meandering through this day by training and protecting as she
had been doing. However, just as she was about to enter her training
mode, she suddenly felt the energy within the valley become like bubbling
boiling water as it fluctuated intensely. She was immediately startled
and she swiftly tracked the source. It was surprisingly the place where
Xiao Yan was undertaking his retreat.
“This fellow…” Medusa knit her eyebrows slightly. She could sense
that the dense energy within the valley was gathering within that
mountain cave in a crazy manner. Moreover, the speed of this
agglomeration was also increasing. In the end, it actually formed a large
energy swirl in the air over the valley, which was dozens of feet wide.
The middle of that swirl was the cave,
“Why is it that the amount of energy he requires to advance is also so
large?” Medusa was stunned as she looked at that enormous swirl over
her head. She could not help but feel a little absent-minded. It was not
as though she had never experienced the advancement from a Dou Wang to a
Dou Huang. That process did require an unusually large amount of energy.
However, it did not occur like Xiao Yan’s crazy attraction of natural
Of course, Medusa was unaware that an ordinary Dou Wang advancing to a
Dou Huang would not require such wild energy snatching. This was because
the energy that they absorbed could at the very most only undergo the
refinement of the Qi Method within their body. However, it was different
for Xiao Yan. There was not only a powerful and overbearing Qi Method
like the ‘Flame Mantra’ within his body but there was also the
existence of three types of ‘Heavenly Flames’. These ‘Heavenly
Flames’ were protecting his body at all times. The natural energy that
was pouring into his body would have to pass through these three
checkpoints. Hence, an energy that was as thick as one’s arm would
quickly be refined into a thread that was as small as one’s thumb after
passing through these three checkpoints. Moreover, after the energy
entered his body and underwent the refinement of the ‘Flame Mantra’
Qi Method, this thumb-sized energy would shrink again. In this way, the
energy that Xiao Yan could absorb had naturally shrank greatly in terms
Of course, the size might have shrank but that energy supplied Xiao Yan
with limitless benefits. With such pure Dou Qi, his foundation in the Dou
Huang class would be much firmer compared to an ordinary Dou Huang. This
point would have a crucial use when he advanced to an even higher class
in the future.
The drawback created by this process was that he required an even larger
and more frightening amount of energy to advance when compared with an
ordinary person. This was the reason that the unusual phenomenon from
The colorful energy swirl slowly rotated in the air while the natural
energy was repeatedly being absorbed. Following the pulling force from
the swirl gradually becoming stronger, even the energy outside of the
valley began to faintly agglomerate toward the small valley.
Medusa had naturally sensed this situation. Her pretty face immediately
changed slightly. This Magical Beast Mountain Range had many powerful
Magical Beasts. They were extremely sensitive to energy. The appearance
of such an intense ripple in this place would definitely attract them
The purple colored light cocoon that Zi Yan had transformed into seemed
to be affected by the intense ripple of the natural energy just as
Medusa’s pretty face changed a little. It immediately emitted an
intense purple glow. Under that purple light, a portion of the natural
energy within the valley separated and wildly rushed toward the cocoon.
In a moment, the sound of energy whistling within the valley appeared
repeatedly. Two wild suction forces swept over the sky and forcefully
pulled over all the energy that they could absorb before swallowing it
all. The suctioning strength of the valley soared, and even some of the
external natural energy began to swiftly surge toward the valley.
“Ugh. These two fellows aren’t even willing to be quiet when they
advance…” Medusa immediately shook her head helplessly when she saw
this. Her body moved and appeared in the sky above the valley. She swept
her pretty eyes around her before her hand suddenly formed numerous
complicated hand seals. Her expression gradually became solemn.
While Medusa’s hands danced and formed numerous afterimages, the air
above the valley suddenly fluctuated in a strange manner. A moment later,
this space became very distorted. The colorful energy swirl was slowly
covered under the distortion of the space.
The wiggling of space became more intense. Medusa’s expression also
became increasingly more solemn. It was a long while later before her
hand seal suddenly changed as she cried out in a deep voice.
When her cry sounded, the surrounding space suddenly solidified as an
unusual fluctuation swiftly spread out. Finally, it covered the entire
mountain valley. Following the spread of this fluctuation, the wild
suction emitted from the valley was slowly hidden.
Medusa only sighed in relief after doing all of this. She lowered her
head and looked at the valley only to see that it was void of anything.
Her body moved and slowly made its way toward the valley. Space suddenly
shook just as her body reached a certain boundary. Her figure gradually
The disappearing Medusa slowly reappeared within the valley. She raised
her head and observed the colorful energy ripple in the air. Her delicate
hand rubbed the perspiration on her smooth forehead. Despite her current
strength, she would still have to exhaust herself greatly in order to
lock the space of this valley. However, it was fortunate that the
activity in this place was hidden once again. Otherwise, it would
inevitably attract various powerful Magical Beasts should time drag on.
Although Medusa was unafraid, if the two people undertaking a retreat
within the valley were affected by the battle, the results would be
“This way, even if there is a person or a Magical Beast flying over the
valley, it would be difficult for them to discover any clues of the
valley as long as their strength has yet to exceed mine. Ugh, these two
fellows really don’t allow one to relax.” Medusa once again sat
cross-legged on the enormous rock and laughed bitterly to herself.
After her voice sounded, Medusa slowly shut her eyes and began to recover
from the great exhaustion from earlier.
The valley which space had been sealed hid those intense fluctuation with
Medusa’s help. However, the enormous colorful energy swirl in the air
did not disappear. Instead, it became increasingly more dense as time
flowed by. The light cocoon within the valley and Xiao Yan in the cave
repeatedly absorbed a large amount of energy from it.
Time quietly slipped by under this quietness where each day was a
repetition of the previous one. Without realizing it, three months had
past since Xiao Yan’s retreat. However, the two people within the
valley still did not show the slightest sign of exiting their retreat.
This caused Medusa to feel extremely helpless.
Time swiftly flowed by like sand between one’s fingers. When the time
that elapsed within the valley had reached the fourth month, Medusa, who
was in training, suddenly opened her eyes. Her pretty face was ice-cold.
At this moment a seven colored snake scale suddenly appeared on her
smooth forehead. Moreover, it was repeatedly emitting a faint colorful
Medusa’s delicate hand gently rubbed the seven colored scale on her
forehead. Her aura had turned somewhat chaotic for the first time. This
scale was created from a tread of spirit that she had stored within the
altar of the Snake-People Race. Only the shaman of the Snake-People Race
could inform her of something through the burning of this thread of
spirit. Normally speaking, this was a measure that the shaman would adopt
only when the tribe was truly met with a great danger.
Despite having been the head of the Snake-People Race for so many years,
this was the first time that this summoning method was used. From the
looks of it, a big matter had indeed befallen the Snake-People Race.
Medusa inhaled a deep breath of air before suddenly standing up. However,
when her gaze swept over the light cocoon and the cave, she hesitated for
a moment. After musing for a long time, she did not immediately leave.
Instead, she leaped up and used her entire strength to place an extremely
secure Space Lock in the sky of this valley.
“I have increased the defenses for the both of you. It should be
sufficient to protect the both of you as you advance here. This time
around, it seems that the Snake-People Race have met with a great
disaster. I must return to them. Once I settle my problem, I will return
Medusa only sighed in relief after completing all of these tasks. She
placed a scroll on the enormous rock where she trained. After which, she
rubbed the hot seven colored snake scale on her forehead. A coldness and
surging killing intent gradually surfaced on her pretty face. Her body
moved, charged through the seal in the space, and swiftly disappeared…
