Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-812
The ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’ contained the twenty-three kinds of
‘Heavenly Flames’ that everyone on the Dou Qi continent knew. Each
type of ‘Heavenly Flame’ on this ranking list caused a countless
number of people to flock over in doves. Any little news that was related
to them would stir up an extremely big commotion. This point had already
been proven many times over by many events.
Each of the ‘Heavenly Flame’ on the ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’ had
their own unique properties. Of course, just like how people had long and
short hands, the ‘Heavenly Flames’ naturally had those that were
stronger and those that were weaker when they were compared with each
other. The first kind of ‘Heavenly Flame’ that Xiao Yan had was the
‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ which was ranked nineteenth on the ranking
list. On top of possessing an extremely wild and violently high
temperature, this kind of ‘Heavenly Flame’ seemed to also be able to
ignite a volcanic eruption. Of course, until now, Xiao Yan had never done
something like this. Hence, he was also unaware of whether this was
The second ‘Heavenly Flame’ he possessed was naturally the ‘Fallen
Heart Flame’ which was ranked fourteenth. This kind of invisible flame
was similar to the ‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ in terms of strength.
However, it was superior in its bizarre uses. Of course, it also
possessed a unique ability that caused one’s eyes to turn red with
envy. That was the ability to help people refine the Dou Qi in their body
to increase their training speed.
Ever since he had learned of the ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’, the
‘Heavenly Flame’ with the highest ranking that Xiao Yan had seen was
the ‘Bone Chilling Flame’ of Yao Lao, which was ranked eleventh on
the ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’. This thing was far more powerful than
Xiao Yan’s two ‘Heavenly Flames’ in terms of destructive strength.
Perhaps only the ‘Glazed Lotus Heart Flame’ that was formed from the
merger of these two ‘Heavenly Flames’ could contend with it.
Xiao Yan had never seen any ‘Heavenly Flame’ ranked above that flame
He was completely unaware of the names of those ‘Heavenly Flames’ and
the special abilities that they possessed.
The eleventh ranked ‘Bone Chilling Flame’ already possessed such a
frightening, destructive strength. It was difficult to imagine just how
frightening the strength of the third ranked ‘Purifying Demonic Lotus
According to what Yao Lao had said back then, this ‘Purifying Demonic
Lotus Flame’ was something that even he had never seen. There was no
rumors of anyone having possessed this kind of ‘Heavenly Flame’
during these many years. A flame at this level seemed to basically be
nonexistent. Xiao Yan really did not know just how the person who
recorded the ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’ had obtained news of these
mysterious ‘Heavenly Flames’ and was able to rank their names from
Xiao Yan had occasionally heard Yao Lao mention that the top five
‘Heavenly Flames’ of this ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’ were actually
those kinds of things where one had only heard of but never seen. At the
very least, he had never seen or heard any information that was related
to the top five ‘Heavenly Flames’ during his era. Back then, he was
extremely proud of his own strength. Originally, he had planned to obtain
a ‘Heavenly Flame’ that was ranked within the top five in order to be
worthy of his status and position. In the end, after spending endless
amounts of time and plenty of effort, he had failed to obtain a
‘Heavenly Flame’ within the top ten, much less within the top five.
Finally, he could only settle for a lower grade. He chose the ‘Bone
Chilling Flame’ that was ranked eleventh. Even though this was the
case, he had nearly suffered from a backlash while he was obtaining the
‘Bone Chilling Flame’. From this, one could tell that the ‘Heavenly
Flames’ on the ‘Heavenly Flame Ranking’ were indeed not things that
were easy to find.
Back then, Yao Lao was so astonished when he had obtained the first
fragmented map piece from the cave and identified just what the black
lotus was. Who would have thought that the thing he had waited for so
long without the slightest clue about would actually appear in such a
secluded mountain cave.
Xiao Yan’s face also let out a sigh as his heart recalled all the
issues related to the ‘Heavenly Flames’. He immediately leaped down
from his bed and came to the side of the table. After which, he began to
carefully join the ancient yellowish map fragments.

Some of the lines that were drawn on the map gradually began to merge as
the maps were joined together. However, some of the things that were
drawn on it left Xiao Yan completely clueless. Given his experience, he
was totally unable to identify just where the location that was drawn on
the map was.
Xiao Yan’s hand gently caressed the map. His eyes landed on an empty
corner. According to his guess, this map should have four parts.
Currently, he already had three parts of it in his hands. If he was able
to obtain the final piece of the map, he might be able to obtain the
location of the ‘Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame!’
Although… his words were spoken in this manner, this Dou Qi continent
was spacious. The difficulty of attempting to obtain the final map
fragment was not much lower than finding a needle in a haystack.
Moreover, it was obvious that one could not find something like this
openly. There were many experts on the Dou Qi continent and it was
different from the secluded existence of the Jia Ma Empire where an
ordinary person did not know what the map fragment was. Hence, should
anyone discover that he possessed a clue to find the ‘Purifying Demonic
Lotus Flame,’ it was likely that he would attract an endless amount of
Xiao Yan involuntarily let out a bitter laugh when he thought of this.
The reason that he was able to obtain three pieces of the map fragments
was because of luck. It was easier said than done if he wanted to go and
get hold of another piece.
“Ugh, I have very little knowledge of the Dou Qi continent, and I am
completely unaware of just what news is out there. I am basically
clueless in my attempt to find the last remaining map fragment…” Xiao
Yan mused to himself. “It seems that at the very least I will need to
look for a trustworthy person who also understands the Dou Qi continent
well in order to obtain some news… however, Cai Lin and the Little
Fairy Doctor do not have a better understanding of the continent compared
to me despite them being trustworthy. Ugh…”
Xiao Yan’s finger gently tapped the table’s surface. He descended
into deep thought. This continued for quite a while before his finger
suddenly paused. A joy surfaced within his heart as he stood up and
softly laughed, “How could I have forgotten about First Elder Su Qian?
Being the First Elder of the Jia Nan Academy’s Inner Academy, it was
likely that this esteem elder should be aware of many secrets given the
special position that the Jia Nan Academy had on the continent. Looking
for him should be the best choice if Xiao Yan wanted to find some news
relating to the ‘Heavenly Flame’.”
“Moreover, even if I am unable to obtain news about the ‘Heavenly
Flame’, it is rumored that the headmaster of the Inner Academy is also
an elite Dou Zun comparable to teacher. If I am able to meet him this
time around, it might be possible to invite him to lend a hand regarding
this ‘Demon Poison Spot’ given his relationship with the Inner
Academy…” Xiao Yan’s eyes flickered. He immediately sigh in relief.
He had left the Inner Academy for more than a year. It was likely that
the incomplete ‘Fallen Heart Flame’ that he had left behind in the
‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’ had already been exhausted. If he did
not go and help them replenish it, it was likely that the First Elder
would become anxious.
“Looks like I will have to hurry over to the ‘Black-Corner Region’
after settling the matters here…” Xiao Yan laughed softly as he
muttered to himself. The ‘Black-Corner Region’ was close to the
middle of the Dou Qi continent. The chances of obtaining news about a
‘Heavenly Flame’ at that place were far higher than staying within
the Jia Ma Empire. Therefore, Xiao Yan might have to plan another trip
Xiao Yan’s heart relaxed after having made this decision. He carefully
stored the map on the table into his storage ring. With a wave of his
sleeves, the flame light in the room was extinguished, and a quiet
darkness covered the room.
“You plan to head to the ‘Black-Corner Region?” Medusa inquired
with some surprised. She was startled when she heard Xiao Yan’s plans.
“Yeah.” Xiao Yan smiled and nodded. He said, “The headmaster of the
Inner Academy is an elite Dou Zun. If I am able to meet him, I might be
able to ask him to help.”
“Chi, that old fellow is always missing. In all my years at the Inner
Academy, I have only seen him once. Even if you go, you might not be able
to meet him.” Zi Yan by the side curled her mouth when she replied.
“I must at least give it a try, right? Moreover, even if I am unable to
meet him, I will also be able to inquire about some information relating
to the ‘Heavenly Flames’ from the First Elder. If I am able to find
another type of ‘Heavenly Flame’, I will not need anyone’s help in
undoing this ‘Demon Poison Spot’.” Xiao Yan vaguely smiled in an
unconcerned manner as he responded.
“Alright, there is more trouble in the ‘Black-Corner Region’ than
within the Jia Ma Empire. Do you need me to follow?” Medusa mused for a
moment before nodding her head and asking a question.
“Although you will be of much help if you follow me, the Yan Alliance
and the Snake-People Tribe will no longer be guaranteed their safety
should you leave. Hence, I can only trouble you to help me protect the
Yan Alliance and the members of the Xiao clan this time around.” Xiao
Yan hesitated for a moment before speaking with a solemn expression. The
people from the ‘Hall of Souls’ seemed to have not given up their
plans for the Xiao clan. If all of them left, it was likely that the
members of the Xiao clan would be in danger should the people from the
‘Hall of Souls’ make their way to the Jia Ma Empire, which did not
have the protection of an elite Dou Zong.
Medusa knit her brows when she heard this. She was not really reassure,
especially allowing Xiao Yan to head to the danger-filled ‘Black-Corner
Region’ alone. However, what Xiao Yan had said was true. The current
Yan Alliance needed the presence of an elite Dou Zong…
“Why don’t I accompany you? The Poison Sect no longer has any
opponents within the Chu Yun Empire. It should not be much trouble for me
to leave for a period of time.” The quiet Little Fairy Doctor by the
side suddenly suggested when she saw the worry on Medusa’s face.
Xiao Yan was startled. He immediately became somewhat hesitant. He would
naturally gain a lot of advantages if an elite Dou Zong like the Little
Fairy Doctor followed him. However, she did have an enormous Poison Sect
“My ‘Woeful Poison Body’ might erupt any time. If you leave for too
long, who will come and help me control it even if all the ingredients
have been found?’ The Little Fairy Doctor involuntarily smiled and
continued to explain when she saw Xiao Yan’s hesitation.
“This… alright. Thank you very much.” Xiao Yan naturally ceased
hesitating since the other party had spoken to such an extent. He
immediately nodded, cupped his hands, and smiled to the Little Fairy
Doctor. He naturally understood that the Little Fairy Doctor had the
intention of protecting him by following him.
Medusa quietly sighed in relief when she saw that the Little Fairy Doctor
had taken the initiative to say that she would follow Xiao Yan. The gaze
she used to look at the latter was slightly gentler. She clearly knew
that the Little Fairy Doctor possessed a strength that was similar to
hers. Xiao Yan should not have too much trouble with her tagging along.
“Let me take this little girl too. I must at least let First Elder and
the others see that I did not mistreat her since I will also be returning
to the Jia Nan Academy.” Xiao Yan patted Zi Yan’s head only to end up
being dodged by the unwilling girl.
Medusa faintly smiled and nodded. Although Zi Yan’s strength was only
that of a Dou Huang, that frightening strange strength of hers was
something that even an expert Dou Huang would have difficulty contending
against. She could also be considered quite the help.
“In that case, when will you be leaving?” Medusa looked at Xiao Yan
as she slowly asked.
“We will leave tomorrow. Now…” Xiao Yan smiled. He immediately
flicked his finger and a jade bottle with an invisible flame sealing its
mouth appeared in his hand. He looked at the jade bottle. Some coldness
flashed across his eyes as he slowly said, “Now, we should pry some
information regarding the ‘Hall of Souls’ from this fellow’s
