Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-778
With Medusa’s order, there was naturally no longer any Snake-Person who
dared to stop Xiao Yan. Hence, he left the area where the Snake-People
lived without obstruction while feeling at a loss. When he walked out of
the isolation line and heard the human voices that once again rose in the
outside world, the chaos in his mind finally began to gradually calm down.
Xiao Yan swung his head about. He recalled Medusa slight displeasure
earlier and that she had not revealed herself even while he left. It
seemed that his expressions earlier had caused her to feel some anger
within her heart.
“Ugh, what a bastard…” Xiao Yan patted his head and sighed while
scolding himself with a bitter smile. He was actually even more hesitant
and had greater difficulty accepting this kind of matter compared to the
female side. Moreover, this matter was his responsibility no matter how
he put it. It was unexpected that it ended up with Medusa opening her
mouth and saying words like she would raise the child alone once it was
Although she and the Snake-People Race might hope that this was the case,
this child would ultimately have the blood of the Xiao clan should this
matter be true. Did he really dare to completely ignore it?
Xiao Yan was not a cold-blooded person. He did not hesitate much before
he chose to make the highest grade Secret Technique that was most
beneficial to the baby when the First Elder requested him to refine the
other medicinal pill. No matter how one put it, the baby was his
bloodline. How could he not give it the best things… however, this news
had arrived too abruptly, destroying all of Xiao Yan’s usual calm.
Hence, the words he had said had accidentally appeared a little hurtful.
“I shall apologize nicely the next time we meet…”
Xiao Yan turned his head and looked around this area while muttering in
his heart. After which, he slowly left.
Xiao Yan met with Xiao Ding, Hai Bodong, and the others after he had
returned to the division of the Yan Alliance that was situated at the
Black Mountain Fortress. They engaged in a discussion before deciding
that they would enact the assassination tomorrow. After all, there was
little time left. Once the Gold Geese Sect’s and the Mulan Valley’s
core strength delivered some rare medicinal pills, the two elite Dou
Zongs might be able to recover some strength. It would be somewhat
troublesome to assassinate them at that time.
Xiao Yan mused for a moment after deciding the time to attack. After
which, he found a chamber and began to adjust his aura a little. He did
not tell Xiao Ding about the matter with Medusa. He knew that given big
brother’s character, it was likely that the latter would get extremely
excited if he knew that Medusa’s womb might have the bloodline of the
Xiao clan. However, the truth of this matter had yet to be ascertained.
If it was indeed just a mistake when the time came, it would only cause
people to be excited for no reason. Therefore, he planned to let Xiao
Ding and the others know about it only when this matter was confirmed.
The first thing that Xiao Yan did within the Secret Chamber was to take
out the ‘Heaven Soul Blood Bone Pill’ medicinal formula that the
First Elder from the Snake-People Tribe gave him. After which, he began
to carefully read it.
The medicinal formula of this kind of ‘Heaven Soul Blood Bone Pill’
was somewhat strange. Its main purpose was to help an unborn baby borrow
the pure medicinal strength to open up and even expand some of the veins
within their bodies while still in their mother’s womb. In this way,
the baby would be able to achieve double the effect with half the effort
when it trained after being borned. Due to this being natural, the baby
would have a much easier time practicing any kind of Qi Method. This kind
of medicinal pill was undoubtedly priceless to some sects or clans with
an extremely powerful strength. As long as they possessed this, they
would be able to repeatedly groom training geniuses with outstanding
Xiao Yan had seen one or two kinds of medicinal formula that were similar
to the ‘Heaven Soul Blood Bone Pill’ among the medicinal formulas
that Yao Lao had left behind. However, they lacked a dominating feeling
when compared to the latter. Xiao Yan did not know just where did the
Snake-People Tribe obtained such a medicinal formula from. Should this be
released, it would definitely arouse the jealousy of quite a number of
powerful factions. After all, as long as one had this thing, it could
provide one with unending amounts of outstanding blood. This possessed an
allure that was difficult for any type of factions.
Although this medicinal formula was valuable, the medicinal strength of
this ‘Heaven Soul Blood Bone Pill’ was a little overbearing. An
ordinary unborn baby would likely have difficulty enduring the
infiltration of this medicinal strength. However, it was fortunate that
the Medusa bloodline possessed a faint ancient bloodline. The baby would
be able to withstand a little of this kind of overbearing medicinal
strength because of that bloodline.
Xiao Yan frowned slightly as he gently played with the scroll in his
hand. This kind of mysterious pill that possessed the ability to alter
one’s constitution was extremely difficult to refine. Its chances of
failure were also extremely high. Moreover, the most frightening thing
was that a medicinal pill of this tier had a chance of stirring up
natural energy when it was formed within the cauldron before finally
attracting a lightning disaster. This kind of lightning disaster was also
called a pill calamity within the alchemist world. Its strength was
extremely great and one could end up dead with a destroyed pill if one
was not careful. Hence, even some alchemists who had the ability to
refine a tier 7 medicinal pill would try to avoid refining this kind of
medicinal pill that could attract a pill calamity. From this, one could
also guess why the Snake-People Tribe had not obtained a ‘Heaven Soul
Blood Bone Pill’ after so many years.
This formula was not only just a matter of gathering medicinal
ingredients. One had to also find a high tier alchemist who had the
ability and the courage to risk his life in order to be able to refine it.
An alchemist who had the ability to refine this kind of medicinal pill
could basically be considered someone at the grandmaster class even in
the entire Dou Qi continent. Who would take the risk of being struck by
lightning to help someone refine this kind of medicinal pill for nothing?
Their lives were extremely valuable.
“The medicinal ingredients that it requires are also quite troublesome.
However, it is fortunate that there is a two year time period. It will be
possible to take things slowly…” Xiao Yan sighed softly. He carefully
stored this medicinal formula properly before musing for a moment. His
hand moved and he took out a blood-red scroll from within his storage
ring. Some dark coldness seeped out the moment this scroll appeared. It
was surprisingly the medicinal formula for the ‘Life Devouring Pill’
that Xiao Li had luckily obtained from the deep mountains within the
‘Black-Corner Region’ back then.
Xiao Yan’s gaze stared at this medicinal formula. His expression was
somewhat cold and stern. Although the development pace of the current
‘Yan Alliance’ was fast, it was still a little weak when compared
with factions like the Poison Sect and the Gold Geese Sect. This was not
merely in terms of the peak experts. It was even more prominent in terms
of the core strength.
However, how could grooming a core strength of experts,who could hold
their own, happen within a short period of time? At such times, the
‘Life Devouring Pill’ would be the fastest shortcut.
Of course, Xiao Yan was also aware of the side-effect of the ‘Life
Devouring Pill’. This matter was something he had also discussed with
Xiao Ding, Hai Bodong, and the couple of Yan Alliance Elders. All of them
decided unanimously that it would be best that they could truly create a
group of fighters who were unafraid to die (death fighters) that were
completely loyal to the Yan Alliance. Although they may only have a three
year lifespan as a result of this, they were all confident that they
would definitely be able to get the Yan Alliance to become one of the
most powerful factions within the northwestern region as long as they
could endure these three years. This might might be a little bloody but
the implication of the Yan Alliance was too great. One example was this
battle. Had Xiao Yan not hurried over at a crucial point in time, it was
likely that the entire Jia Ma Empire would have been eliminated. At that
time, an unknown number of people would have lost their lives.
If one wanted to protect even more people, it was only natural that there
must be the sacrifice of a small group of people.
“After resolving this matter, I will hand this medicinal formula to big
brother before secretly dispatching alchemists to refine them. The actual
death squad can only be left to big brother and the others to decide.
However, such people must be absolutely loyal. As long as we can possess
a group of Dou Wang class death fighters, the Yan Alliance can be
considered to truly possess an infallible status in the Jia Ma Empire. It
is also not impossible to dominate the northwestern region in the
future.” Xiao Yan muttered to himself.
Xiao Yan solemnly returned this medicinal formula to his ring as this
thought flashed across his heart. He let out a long sigh as hand seals
began to slowly form. His eyes were gradually shut as he entered into the
Ever since he had broken through to the Dou Huang class and left the
small mountain valley, Xiao Yan had never truly calmed down to train. The
big battle from a couple of years ago had also caused him to be always
tensed up, not daring to relax even a little. Only now that Xiao Yan had
finished this matter did he have the time to quietly nurse his body.
The air within the chamber began to fluctuate slightly after Xiao Yan
entered his training condition. Waves of natural energy surfaced. After
which, they turned into two small colorful snakes that entered his
nostrils. After which, they were swiftly refined by the two kinds of
‘Heavenly Flames’ within his body before transforming into threads of
pure Dou Qi that flowed in his veins. In the end, Dou Qi was assimilated
into every part of his body.
This battle with two elite Dou Zongs in one day had greatly exhausted
Xiao Yan. This was especially the case when he had unleashed a
frightening move like the three colored ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’.
Not only did it greatly exhaust his Dou Qi but his Spiritual Strength had
also become much weaker as a result. However, it was fortunate that Xiao
Yan’s Spiritual Strength was stronger than an ordinary person. His
recovery speed was also quite gratifying. Hence, his exhausted Spiritual
Strength had automatically recovered within a short couple of days.
After having used the ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’ so many times, Xiao
Yan faintly sensed that his Spiritual Strength had appeared to become
increasingly more mellow. It filled with more strength during the
recovery cycle after this kind of exhaustion. His Spiritual Perception
had also become much sharper than before because of this.

His training quietly continued amid this dullness. By the time Xiao Yan
had withdrawn from this training mode, glaring sunlight shot into the
chamber from a small window. The rays left behind numerous light spots on
Xiao Yan slowly opened his eyes. A somewhat whitish and hot aura was spat
out from Xiao Yan. His expression had also become radiant in an instant.
A hot fire glow flickered within his dark-black eyes before gradually
fading a moment later.
“Battle is really the shortcut to raise one’s level…”
Xiao Yan stretched his lazy waist. He could sense that his strength had
improved slightly after the battle with Yan Luo Tian and the three Mulan
Elders. The current him had already completely stabilized at the one star
Dou Huang level. It had only been a month since he had broken through to
the Dou Huang class. Such speed was considered fast.
“Hu… today, it is time to act…”
Xiao Yan moved his hand and a gray-colored jade piece appeared in Xiao
Yan’s hand. The corner of his mouth moved slightly as a somewhat dark,
cold smile surfaced.
