Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-805
An earth-shaking explosion suddenly resounded over the sky. At that
moment, the entire Sky Scorpion Mountain Range violently trembled because
of it. Some of the weaker people from both sides were shaken by this
sudden thunder-like roar until threads of blood seeped from their ears.
The enormous seven colored energy agglomerated in the sky like clouds.
Finally, it slowly scattered. The space was just like that of the surface
of a calm lake after an enormous rock was thrown into it, stirring up a
storm. On top of it, waves of visible energy ripples seeped out.
Xiao Yan paused in the sky while being supported by Zi Yan. The ‘Sea
Flipping Seal’ from earlier had nearly exhausted all the Dou Qi within
his body. Fortunately, the usage of the ‘God Seal Skill’ did not pose
much requirements on his Spiritual Strength. Hence, the kind of dizzy
condition after using the ‘Angry Buddha Lotus Flame’ did not appear.
Despite this, Xiao Yan’s current condition was not good. His face was
pale and his aura was weary. It was still somewhat hard for him to use
the ‘Sea Flipping Skill’ with his current strength.
At this moment, Xiao Yan’s and Zi Yan’s eyes were focused on the
seven colored energy in the sky that had scattered. Protector Tie had
firmly received such a fierce strike from Medusa, and it was likely that
his situation would not be good. Regardless of what happened, Xiao Yan
possessed the thought that this fellow must die. Moreover, he had even
recognized the ‘God Seal Skill’ that he had used. In order to avoid
some trouble in the future, this fellow must not be allowed to leave!
A dense killing intent flashed across Xiao Yan’s eyes as this thought
appeared across his heart. He must not allow this person to remain!
The seven colored energy gradually spread under a countless number of
gazes. At a certain moment, the rainbow like seven colored energy
suddenly fluctuated. A miserable black figure immediately rushed out.
The black figure fled toward the northern sky with all his might the
moment he appeared. Taking in his miserable appearance, he no longer
possessed even a little of the prestige from earlier. Clearly, this
Protector of the ‘Hall of Souls’ had already lost the right to be
arrogant after suffering repeated setbacks.
Medusa, who had been observing the vicinity, sensed Protector Tie the
moment the latter appeared. She merely laughed when she saw Protector
Tie’s fleeing manner. Her body moved and she transformed into a seven
colored glow that shot forth before appearing in front of Protector Tie
within a couple of flashes.
“I am someone from the ‘Hall of Souls’. The ‘Hall of Souls’
will not let you off if you kill me!”
Protector Tie hurriedly reduced his speed. He put up a bold front as he
cried out sternly the moment he saw Medusa.
At this moment, the black fog surrounding Protector Tie was extremely
thin. His aura was similar to Xiao Yan’s aura, where it was weary until
an extremely weak degree. Clearly, the powerful strike by Medusa earlier
had given this expert from the ‘Hall of Souls’ a heavy blow.
Medusa’s eyes were ice-cold as they swept over Protector Tie. A faint
ridicule surfaced in her eyes as she coldly laughed, “A dog that has
lost its home…”
“Alright, alright, since you are unwilling to give up, this protector
will fight with you until the both of us suffer!” Protector Tie angrily
roared out upon being ridiculed by Medusa. Black fog swiftly brewed from
his body. However, just as everyone thought that this fellow was about to
unleash his final attack, his body suddenly turned, and he began to flee
in another direction with the help of the black fog’s cover.
Medusa’s eyes mockingly observed the fleeing Protector Tie. She shook
her head, clenched her delicate hand and a powerful suction forced
suddenly erupted from her palm. Under this suction force, the latter’s
fleeing speed was instantly reduced. Medusa’s body moved and appeared
behind him before viciously delivering a palm to his back.
Protector Tie staggered back upon being struck by the palm. The black fog
on his body became even thinner. Currently, it was likely that even an
expert Dou Huang could easily finish him…
Medusa let out a cold laugh after seriously injuring Protector Tie. She
extended her delicate hand and a powerful seven colored energy surged
out, completely wrapping around Protector Tie like an energy cover.
The seven colored energy was like a lock that sealed Protector Tie
within.Protector Tie had difficulty breaking the energy layer regardless
of how he struggled. Hence, he could only emit a furious roar like that
of a trapped beast.
Medusa’s body moved while her delicate hand was holding onto the energy
layer. She appeared in front of Xiao Yan within a couple of flashes.
“This fellow’s injuries are too serious. He basically doesn’t have
much to retaliate with now. He is indeed much easier to deal with
compared to that Protector Wu.” Medusa dragged the energy layer in
front of her, looked at Protector Tie within, and softly spoke.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he saw that this fellow did not escape. He
had finally settled this fellow from the ‘Hall of Souls’ after
spending so much effort.
“It is just that I did not expect this fellow to possess the strength
to scream despite being so seriously injured.” Medusa glanced at
Protector Tie within the energy layer with some surprise. Her brows were
slightly knit before her delicate hand moved. The energy layer swiftly
shrank before finally adhering to Protector Tie’s body. A ‘chi chi’
sound immediately appeared and the mouth of that Protector Tie emitted
numerous sharp sounds.
Following the erosion of that seven colored energy, the black fog on
Protector Tie’s body grew increasingly thinner. A moment later, it
completely disappeared. With the disappearance of this black fog that
covered his exterior, the body of Protector Tie was finally revealed!
A somewhat illusionary spiritual body slowly drifted within the energy
layer. However, this spiritual body appeared somewhat illusionary and
transparent. It seemed to have entered a seriously injured state…
Xiao Yan and Medusa were stunned when they saw the original body of this
expert protector from the ‘Hall of Souls’.
“A spiritual body?” Xiao Yan was somewhat astounded as he studied the
weak spirit of Protector Tie. No one expected this expert from the
‘Hall of Souls,’ who was comparable to that of someone from the Dou
Zong class, to actually be a spiritual body.
“What is happening? Don’t tell me that we have captured the wrong
person?” Medusa was also extremely surprised as she said.
“No, that should not be the case…” Xiao Yan shook his head while
wearing a solemn expression. He said, “Since the ‘Hall of Souls’
uses soul in its name and the targets that it captures are powerful
spiritual bodies, this mysterious ‘Hall of Souls’ should have a great
relationship with souls. Perhaps… some of the experts from the ‘Hall
of Souls’ are originally spiritual bodies…”
“For example, the Protector Wu from the last time… ultimately never
revealed his original body, hidden in the black fog…”
Medusa slightly frowned upon hearing this deduction by Xiao Yan. She
clarified, “You mean that the ‘Hall of Souls’ uses spiritual bodies
to deal with spiritual bodies?”
“Yes, there is a good chance of this. Ordinary Dou Qi is unable to
cause a fatal blow to a spiritual body. If one wants to capture or deal
with other spiritual bodies, the best hunter would be spiritual bodies
who are in a similar state…” Xiao Yan spoke with a solemn expression.
“The ‘Hall of Souls’ will not let all of you off for killing me!”
Protector Tie’s eyes were fierce as he defied Xiao Yan and Medusa. Even
though he had recently fallen into their hands, his tone was still quite
“Relax, I will not kill you. I still have many things that I wish to
learn from you…” Xiao Yan’s hand extended into the energy layer. He
touched the spirit Protector Tie without the slightest fear while
speaking with a smile.
A denseness flashed across Protector Tie’s eyes when he saw that Xiao
Yan was actually so bold. He flicked his finger and a black colored
chain, that had shrunk a lot, strangely appeared before shooting toward
Xiao Yan’s hand.
Xiao Yan let out a cold snort upon seeing this action of Protector Tie.
He flicked his finger and an invisible flame suddenly appeared in his
palm. It shot toward Protector Tie.
The ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ swiftly shot over before colliding with
Protector Tie’s spiritual body.
A dense white smoke and ‘chi chi’ sound suddenly appeared on the
surface of Protector Tie’s body when the invisible flame made contact
with the latter’s spirit. A sharp cry containing a bone deep pain
resounded from his mouth.
“Dammit, what kind of flame is this? It is actually able to harm a
Xiao Yan smiled and nodded only after seeing Protector Tie leaping up and
down while being burned by that cluster of ‘Fallen Heart Flame’. It
seemed that this ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ was indeed able to harm a
spiritual body. It was possible to harm a spiritual body as long as the
energy or Dou Qi reached a certain degree of strength, but there was no
doubt that the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ was the one that could be
considered the thing that a spiritual body was extremely afraid of or
even terrified of.
The originally seriously injured Protector Tie suffered additional
injuries while being burned by the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’. His spirit
was almost a transparent state. From the looks of it, he could be turned
into a cluster of nothingness at any moment.
Xiao Yan waved his hand upon seeing that Protector Tie was about to turn
into nothingness. That cluster of ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ slowly
disappeared. A jade bottle was immediately taken out from his storage
ring. With a wave of his hand, a suction force stuffed Protector Tie’s
spirit into the jade bottle. After which, an invisible flame slowly rose
on his finger as it circled once around the surface of the jade bottle.
Finally, the flame was used to seal the bottle’s mouth.
“I will let him stay in it first. I will interrogate him about
information regarding the ‘Hall of Souls’ once the matter here is
Xiao Yan sighed in relief only after storing the jade bottle in his
Storage Ring. As long as he captured this fellow, his aim for this trip
had been successfully achieved. Moreover, now that he was aware that it
was possible that some of the experts from the ‘Hall of Souls’ were
spiritual bodies, the ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ in Xiao Yan’s hand might
well cause those fellows to truly suffer great losses.
“Are you alright?” Medusa knit her brows and inquired upon seeing
Xiao Yan’s pale-white face that contained a smile.
“Ke ke, it is just that too much of the Dou Qi within me has been
exhausted. I didn’t receive any injuries. As long as I rest a little, I
will be able to recover…” Xiao Yan smiled and shook her head. His
eyes studied Medusa before softly saying, “Thank you very much.”
“If you had not exhausted him, it would not have been possible for me
to subdue him so easily.” Medusa slightly turned her head away and
randomly spoke while she was under the focus of Xiao Yan’s eyes.
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head when he heard this. If Medusa had not
delayed him earlier, where would he have found the time to use the ‘Sea
Flipping Seal,’ a Dou Skill he was not familiar with?
Xiao Yan thought of this in his heart. He was about to speak when his
face suddenly changed. His head was abruptly lifted, and his eyes moved
to the grayish-purple colour space cage which had been void of activity
for a long time. Some unusual fluctuations suddenly appeared there.
“Is the victor about to be decided?”
