Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-818
The green-clothed, old man stood in empty air. Large Dou Qi wings on his
back flapped slowly, blowing the surrounding air until it spread apart
like waves of water.
The expression of the old man was somewhat dark. A sternness filled the
spot between his brows. Although the size of his body was quite small,
the pair of hands that were revealed outside his sleeves were
exceptionally large. His fingers were also unusually long. They emitted a
cold blade-like glint under the light of the sunlight.
The faces of both parties changed following the appearance of this
green-clothed, old man. The two Demon Flame Valley’s expert Dou Wangs
swiftly withdrew. After which, they knelt with one knee on the ground and
cried out in an extremely respectful manner, “Welcome Fourth Elder!”
Wu Hao’s expression was solemn as he stared at the green-clothed, old
man in the sky. His heart, however, slowly sank. He was also quite
familiar with this green-clothed, old man.
The Fourth Elder of the Demon Flame Valley. His name of Xie Zhen and the
people in the ‘Black-Corner Region’ called him the Eagle-Clawed
Elder. His strength was around that of a six star Dou Huang. His sharp
close range combat was something that was renowned. This was especially
so for his well-known claw technique that caused many to feel afraid by
just hearing its name. Quite a number of experts from ‘Xiao Gate’ had
fallen to this person’s hands during the conflicts between ‘Xiao
Gate’ and the ‘Demon Flame Valley’ these past couple of years.
It was obvious that Xiao Yu and the rest had also heard of this person.
Hence, their faces had become much uglier.
The green-clothed old man in the sky flapped the Dou Qi wings on his back
as he slowly descended. Finally, he landed on a mountain rock on the
precipitous wall as he looked down at the stubborn group of Wu Hao from
high above. He immediately turned to the two expert Dou Wangs and faintly
ridiculed, “Two Dou Wangs are actually unable to finish off a
The bodies of the two expert Dou Wangs trembled when they heard these
words of the green-clothed old man. They hurriedly replied, “Fourth
Elder, although the strength of this Wu Hao is similar to us, it is
naturally not difficult for us to defeat him. However, we have invited
Fourth Elder over as a precaution. Elder, please forgive us for
“Chi, what do you mean by not difficult. The Qi Method and Dou Skills
that this Wu Hao practices are stronger than the both of you. Adding this
to his all out life risking attacks, the both of you will have a
difficult time defeating him unless you pay a certain price. It is likely
that the both of you had asked me to come because you are afraid that it
will really be difficult to finish him off, right?” Xie Zhen merely
laughed after hearing their words.
Embarrassment surfaced on the faces of the two expert Dou Wangs after
their thoughts were exposed by Xie Zhen. They did not dare to reply.
Xie Zhen coldly snorted when he saw the embarrassed looked on the faces
of these two. He was too lazy to bother with these two fellows who were
afraid to die. His gaze turned to Wu Hao’s group as he spoke with a
faint voice, “It is really not easy to be able to reach this step at
such an age. The talent of the students of the Jia Nan Academy really
causes one to feel envious. Since most of the students who graduate
leave, it is likely that a faction made by them would cause every person
in the ‘Black-Corner Region’ to feel uneasy all the time.”
Wu Hao’s face was tense. His hand tightly gripped the heavy
blood-colored sword as he said in a deep voice, “Xie Zhen, you are a
renowned expert within the ‘Black-Corner Region’ regardless of how
one puts it. Today, you actually ignore your status and attack a group of
people from the younger generation. It is likely that this will attract a
lot of ridicule should this be spread.”
“Hee hee, brat, this is the ‘Black-Corner Region’, not some other
place. Only the victor has the greatest say in this place… whatever
younger generation or older generation. There is no such taboo in this
place.” Xie Zhen shook his head and replied with disdain.
“Alright. The old me shall not talk nonsense with you. Are you going to
surrender today or continue this resistance?” Xie Zhen waved his hand
somewhat impatiently and spoke in a faint voice.
“The Jia Nan Academy does not have anyone who will surrender!” Wu Hao
replied in a deep voice. His skin tightened upon sensing the killing
intent that gradually seeped out from Xie Zhen’s words. The students
from the Jia Nan Academy behind him clenched their teeth while standing
behind Wu Hao. They were not fools. Therefore, they knew that even if
they did surrender, their ending would not be any good. In that case,
they might as well go all out and gamble.
“Hei, the people from the Jia Nan Academy are indeed a bunch of people
with tough bones but… this is merely seeking to suffer!” Xie Zhen’s
eyes gradually turned cold as he darkly laughed. His feet suddenly
stomped on the ground and his body rushed down, appearing at a spot not
far from where Wu Hao’s group was.
“It is rumored that the Blood Sword Wu Hao can even disregard his life
in combat. Today, the old me shall try and see just how much you can
struggle.” Xie Zhen’s voice was ice-cold as he spoke while slowly
walking toward Wu Hao, “All of you should seal the exit tightly. You
will use your life to repay if you allow anyone to flee!”
The surrounding black-clothed people from the Demon Flame Valley
hurriedly acknowledged Xie Zhen’s cold cry. After which, they slowly
withdrew, and formed a fan-like shape, completely sealing of the
Wu Hao’s heart completely sank upon seeing the other party’s stance
that obviously intended to finish all of them off. His eyes were
blood-red as he observed Xie Zhen who was slowly walking over. Both of
his hands tightly gripped the heavy blood-coloured sword. A moment later,
he suddenly roared out angrily as his feet stomped on the ground. His
body shot forward and the blood sword in his hand shot toward Xie
The corner of Xie Zhen’s mouth emitted disdain when he saw that Wu Hao
had actually chosen to unleash an attack. He stood still and waited for
the blood sword to appear at a distance of two feet from him. Only then
did his large hand curl slightly in an abrupt fashion. It immediately
replicated eagle claws that were extended in a strange manner. Finally,
his five fingers were locked forward. They caused the forward momentum of
the blood sword, which contained a powerful aura, to completely stiffen.
Wu Hao’s face changed slightly as the blood sword stopped moving. He
clenched his teeth and violently pulled at the blood sword. However, the
other party’s five shriveled fingers were like a large pincer that held
the blood sword completely still.
“You actually dare to act arrogant in front of this old man with this
little strength?” Xie Zhen coldly laughed as he glanced at Wu Hao who
was gritting his teeth and pulling at the blood sword. Xie Zhen suddenly
flicked his finger, and it struck the heavy ruler with great force. A
powerful strength suddenly erupted!
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
Wu Hao’s body flew back following the sound of metal. His feet rubbed
against the ground, forming a long scar. His hand that held the heavy
blood-colored sword repeatedly trembled as a thread of fresh blood seeped
out. Finally, it followed the blade of the blood sword and dripped down.
The young ladies and men behind him hurriedly cried out when they saw Wu
Hao being forced back with injuries.
“Are you alright?” Xiao Yu’s hand supported Wu Hao’s back and
resolved the force on it. After which, she asked in an anxious manner.
The strongest person currently present was Wu Hao. If any accident were
to happen to him, they would no longer possess even the slightest ability
“I’m fine!” Wu Hao clenched his teeth and once again stood up. His
eyes were locked onto Xie Zhen’s calm face. A moment later, he inhaled
a deep breath of air and his face suddenly turned bloody-red.
A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out. Finally, it transformed into a
layer of blood fog that wrapped around Wu Hao. Following the wrapping of
the blood fog, a bright-red bloody glow suddenly erupted around his body.
The blood glow surged and the Dou Qi within Wu Hao’s body greatly
soared. His body once again transformed into a bloody figure that
explosively shot forth!
“Huh? You do indeed have some small tricks. However, in the face of
genuine strength, these things are all completely useless!” Xie Zhen
was somewhat surprised when he sensed Wu Hao’s aura that had suddenly
soared. He immediately let out a cold laugh as his hand-claw curled. A
dense-white Dou Qi appeared in his palm before lingering over his sharp
fingernails while carrying a dense, cold aura!
The blood figure swiftly flashed and arrived. He raised the heavy sword
in his hand high above. Blood-colored Dou Qi wildly churned before the
sword violently smashed toward Xie Zhen’s head as though it was
splitting a mountain.
Xie Zhen’s hand-claw, that contained a cold white-colored aura,
explosively shot forward as his gaze coldly watched the heavy sword had
been hacked down. Afterimages flew in all directions. Each time the
hand-claw slammed against the blood sword, the powerful blood-colored Dou
Qi covering it would slightly weaken. This continued for only a couple of
blinks before the powerful Dou Qi on the blood-colored sword was
scattered by the former.
“I shall let you see what is called the strength of a Dou Huang!”
Xie Zhen coldly laughed the moment the Dou Qi scattered. His hand-claw
curled and he grabbed the blood sword in a forceful manner. He swung his
arm and the blood sword escaped Wu Hao’s hand before heavily inserting
itself in a mountain wall.
Xie Zhen’s body suddenly leaned forward when the blood sword escaped
from Wu Hao’s hand. His hand-claw cut fhe air and formed a strange scar
that viciously smashed against the latter’s chest.
Wu Hao immediately spat out a mouthful of fresh blood upon suffering such
a heavy blow. His body flew backward. It rubbed against the ground for
over ten meters before finally coming to a slow stop.
Xiao Yu’s group involuntarily emitted an exclamation when they saw that
Wu Hao was once again wounded. A couple of instructors hurriedly rushed
forward. However, they ended up spitting blood and were forced back by a
couple of wind attacks that suddenly surged over before they could reach
Wu Hao’s side. In an instant, there was no one who dared to proceed
Xie Zhen’s eyes were cold and indifferent as they studied Wu Hao who
was struggling to stand up from the ground. The disdain in the corner of
his mouth was even denser. His feet moved softly as he slowly walked
toward the seriously wounded Wu Hao.
Although Xiao Yu’s group around had the intention of stopping Xie Zhen
when they saw what he was doing, there was too much of a gap between
their strengths to do anything. Xie Zhen could caused them to be unable
to reach even a radius of ten meters around Wu Hao by simply raising his
Xie Zhen’s feet finally stopped in front of Wu Hao in front of those
many horrified gazes. His eyes carried a savage smile as he looked down
at Wu Hao from above. He said with a dense voice, “Brat, if you are
allowed to train for a couple more years, it is likely that you would be
able to surpass the old me. Unfortunately, geniuses are destined to die
Xie Zhen’s hand-claw extended after the cold voice sounded. A suction
force immediately surged out and a blood figure suddenly rushed over.
Finally, it transformed into a blood sword.
“I wonder if dying by your own weapon is considered a humiliation to
you?” The blood sword was randomly swung, forming a couple of sword
afterimages. This was followed by a faint laugh by Xie Zhen. His eyes
suddenly turned cold as the blood sword in his hand pierced toward Wu
Hao’s head in a ruthless manner.
The faces of Xiao Yu’s group drastically changed upon watching Xie
Zhen’s actions. Some of the young ladies let out an involuntary sharp
The blood sword was swiftly expanding in front of Wu Hao’s eyes. At
this moment, he no longer had any other path but to shut his eyes and
The blood sword came closer and closer to Wu Hao’s head in front of
numerous shocked gazes. Just as everyone thought that Wu Hao would
definitely die, the rushing sound of wind suddenly resounded through the
A black figure rushed down from the sky in a lightning-like manner as the
rushing wind sound appeared. Finally, it accurately knocked against that
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
A clear sound reverberated over the place. Immediately, an enormously
large black thing was inserted into the ground. The blood sword had been
smashed into the ground by it.
Dust scattered from the point where the black object fell. The sudden
unexpected change caused everyone to feel stunned. Wu Hao also slowly
opened his eyes.. His face was shocked as he looked at the large black
ruler that appeared in front of him.
Wu Hao’s eyes were startled as he looked at this somewhat
familiar-looking enormous black ruler. An instant later, he seemed to
have recalled something. A wild joyful suddenly surfaced on his face.
