Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-827
The silent atmosphere in the hall continued for around one minute. Qi
Shan finally could not endure it any longer as he said in an enigmatic
manner, “Hey Old Yan. Although your success rate in refining a Dou
Spirit Pill is extremely low, aren’t you valuing this Dou Spirit Pill
Old Yan from the Thousand Medicinal House faintly swept his eyes over Qi
Shan after hearing the latter speak these words. He coldly smiled and
said, “Perhaps I might not be comparable to you when it came to
medicinal refinement skills. However, the old me is not afraid of you
when it comes to having eyes for medicinal pills.”
Qi Shan choked on these words of Old Yan until he became dull. He also
felt somewhat bitter. When it came to having eyes for medicinal pills, he
had no choice but admit that he could not match the former.
“This mister, are you really planning to use this Dou Spirit Pill to
exchange for these three medicinal ingredients?” Owner Yao’s face was
full of smiles as she looked at Xiao Yan. Her voice contained some
uncertainty. The value of this Dou Spirit Pill was greater than these
three medicinal ingredients. In order to succeed in sealing this deal,
she was even willing to leave Qi Shan hanging dry by the side. A Dou
Spirit Pill even Old Yan praised could definitely be considered the top
of the top among the tier 5 medicinal pills. Although her Thousand
Medicinal House was weary of Qi Shan, it could not be considered
Xiao Yan also understood the uncertainty in Owner Yao’s words. He
naturally understood that the value of the Dou Spirit Pill was far higher
than these three medicinal ingredients. However, his Storage Ring only
had this tier 5 medicinal pill he had refined back then. Although he had
some other medicinal pills, they were either a lot better than this Dou
Ling Pill or too low for him to take out. Therefore, he could only allow
the boss of this Thousand Medicinal House to have the advantage in the
deal. However, it was fortunate that Xiao Yan did have a positive
impression of her because of her earlier hidden reminder. It was fine to
allow her to gain more from the deal.
“If Owner Yao does not have any objections, I will take these three
medicinal ingredients.” Xiao Yan smiled and nodded before speaking.
A wild joy immediately surfaced on Owner Yao’s face when she heard
this. She was just about to nod her head when Qi Shan by the side
suddenly slammed his hand on the table and furiously cried out,
Owner Yao’s expression slightly sank upon being interrupted by Qi Shan.
Her pretty eyes flipped to Qi Shan and her voice contained suppressed
anger, “Old Qi, Qie-shen respects you as an important person in the
Black Emperor City and gives you an unusually great amount of respect.
Please do not get my Thousand Medicinal House to give an order preventing
By being able to have such a booming business within the Black Emperor
City and even possess the help of an alchemist with Old Yan’s ability,
the Thousand Medicinal House was naturally not one that could be easily
manipulated by anyone. Although Qi Shan’s background was quite strong,
it was not possible for him to squat over them and shit…
Qi Shan’s expression changed when he heard Owner Yao’s furious words.
He immediately let out a cold snort as his gaze viciously stared at Xiao
Yan and said, “Isn’t it just a Dou Spirit Pill? Don’t think that
the old me cannot take it out.”
Qi Shan swung his hand after his voice sounded. A jade bottle flashed out
and immediately landed heavily on the table’s surface.
The hall immediately let out another uproar when they saw this action of
Xie Shan. Those gazes that were looking at Xie Shan were filled with
shock and disbelief. Did this old fellow take the wrong medicine today?
Not only was he not thinking of taking advantage of others but he was
actually willing to spend so much and take out a Dou Spirit Pill?
Blood was dripping from Qi Shan’s heart amid the surrounding shock
gazes. He was currently intending to attempt to refine a tier 6 medicinal
pill. The main ingredient in it was the ‘Jade Bone Fruit’. Hence, he
held an attitude of having to obtain this thing at all cost.
Additionally, he had been provoked by Xiao Yan. If news were to spread in
the future that the top alchemist of the Black Emperor Sect was actually
unable to compete with a little brat, how would someone as prideful as
Being urged on by these two conditions, Qi Shan finally clenched his
teeth, endured the pain in his heart, and took out the only Dou Spirit
Pill in his store.
This action of Qi Shan had clearly exceeded the expectations of Owner Yao
and Old Yan. They had never expected to gain an advantage from this old
fellow… the two of them looked at each other and felt somewhat awkward.
Old Yan hesitated for a moment before slowly extending his hand to
receive that jade bottle. After which, he emptied medicinal pill from the
bottle. His gaze swept over it only for him to frown.
Owner Yao’s heart sank when she saw this from the side. She asked,
“This is indeed also a Dou Spirit Pill…” Old Yan slowly withdraw
his gaze and glanced at Qi Yan. He spoke in a faint voice, “However,
its quality… is far inferior compared to that of this little friend.”

“Nonsense! The old me is a tier 6 alchemist. How can the medicinal pill
that I refined be inferior to that little brat?” Qi Shan immediately
became furious. He angrily cried out after hearing Old Yan’s words.
Old Yan was too lazy to be bothered about the furious Qi Shan. His right
hand held that Dou Spirit Pill from Xiao Yan while his left hand held the
one from Qi Shan. After which, he spoke to all the alchemists within the
hall, “Everyone here is alchemists who possess quite a great reputation
within the Black Emperor City. You should all be in possession of some
pill identifying abilities. Everyone, please tell me just which of these
two Dou Spirit Pills is better.”
Numerous gazes within the hall immediately shot over upon hearing the
words of Old Yan. After which, they slowly lingered for a moment over the
two medicinal pills. Their expressions all became somewhat unusual.
Regardless of whether it was the luster or the pill fragrance that it
emitted, the pill from Xiao Yan was undoubtedly superior compared to the
one from Qi Shan.
The effect of a Dou Spirit Pill was to allow a Dou Wang class expert to
raise his strength by one star. This kind of advancement had some chances
of failure. At this time, one must look at the quality of the medicinal
pill. Putting it simply, if an expert Dou Wang consume Xiao Yan’s and
Qi Shan’s Dou Spirit Pill, the former’s medicinal pill would
definitely have a greater chance of success!
A Dou Wang could only consume one Dou Spirit Pill. Hence, if they wanted
to purchase a medicinal pill, they would likely choose to first purchase
Xiao Yan’s medicinal pill even if they had to spend their entire
fortune to do so.
By comparing it in this manner, the difference between the two could
naturally be identified.
Of course, despite knowing which of these two medicinal pills was
superior, no one dared to say anything. After all, if they were to say
something at this moment, it was likely that they would offend Qi Shan.
Therefore, the entire hall descended into an awkward silence in an
Although the place was silent, the gaze of almost everyone in the hall
had stopped on the right hand of Old Yan. The medicinal pill there was
the Dou Spirit Pill that belonged to Xiao Yan.
This scene was naturally sensed by Qi Shan. Regardless of how thick his
skin was, his face still swiftly turned a flushed red. A dark solemness
gradually surged into the gaze which he was throwing at Xiao Yan by his
side. Clearly, this narrow-minded old fellow felt a great hatred for Xiao
Yan who had shaved off his prestige.
Old Yan slowly withdrew his hands. He placed the two medicinal pill back
into their individual jade bottles. After which, he immediately returned
one jade bottle to a spot in front of Qi Shan. His meaning could be
comprehended without the need to say anything.
“Mister Yan, these three medicinal ingredients belong to you.” Owner
Yao quietly sighed in relief when she saw this action of Old Yan. She
immediately smiled to Xiao Yan.
“Thank you very much…” Xiao Yan similarly sighed in relief in his
heart. These three medicinal ingredients were too difficult to find.
During their tens of thousands of kilometer journey from the Chu Yun
Empire to the Black-Corner Region, he was unable to find even the
slightest news of these three medicinal ingredients. Now that he had
luckily found them in this place, he would definitely not give up
regardless of what happened.
Xiao Yan ignored the furious and gloomy gaze of Qi Shan behind him as he
received the three jade boxes. However, his face changed before he could
store the jade boxes into his Storage Ring. He suddenly felt a powerful
wind behind him, a forewarning of a fierce attacked.
Xiao Yan was naturally aware of who had unleashed this sudden attack. His
expression instantly sank. A cold snort sounded as powerful Dou Qi
erupted from Xiao Yan’s body like a volcano in all directions within an
The Dou Qi that surged out of his body writhed. Finally, it appeared to
be invocated by something and smashed furiously toward the attack behind
A deep energy explosion resounded within the hall. An energy ripple burst
forth, causing everyone in the hall to hurriedly move back to dodge it.
Numerous stunned gazes were immediately thrown toward Xiao Yan, whose
body was covered by jade-green Dou Qi. Quite a number of people exclaimed
when they sensed the degree of the Dou Qi’s strength.
After blocking that attack, Xiao Yan’s expression was dark and cold as
he turned around. Those eyes of his were dense as he glared at Qi Shan,
whose expression had also changed after having discovered Xiao Yan’s
“Ke ke, it is unexpected that this friend is actually an expert Dou
Huang. The old me can be considered blind… my emotions were unstable a
moment ago. Please do forgive me for any offence.” Qi Shan appeared to
have sensed the frigid killing intent in Xiao Yan’s eyes. He hurriedly
took two steps back and laughed.
Xiao Yan’s eyes were filled with ice as he stared at Qi Shan. He spoke
with a dense voice, “Don’t think that I don’t dare to kill you just
because you are the top alchemist within the Black Demon Sect…”
Two human figures slowly walked to Xiao Yan’s side as he spoke. Their
gaze were filled with ill intent while they were looking at Qi Shan on
the opposite side. That manner appeared as though they would immediately
attack and get this hateful old fellow to forever remain behind should
Xiao Yan open his mouth.
Xiao Yan’s words caused Qi Shan’s face to twitch. However, after
having exchanged blows earlier, he already knew that Xiao Yan’s
strength was not any weaker than him. Even if they were to really fight,
it was difficult to say just who would be victorious. Moreover, Little
Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan by the side faintly gave him a dangerous feeling.
Hence, he could only dryly laugh as he spoke with a superficial smile,
“The temper of the young people these days is really getting worse.
Hopefully, you can still be this arrogant the next time we meet…”
Qi Shan swung his sleeves after leaving these words behind. He carried a
fury within him as he turned around and walked down the stairs before
disappearing from everyone’s sight.
Those alchemists who had remained behind in the hall knew that it was
unwise to stay in this place for much longer after seeing Qi Shan leave.
They cupped their hands toward Owner Yao before descending from the
second story one after another…
“Mister Yan, it is fortunate that you did not attack just now. This Qi
Shan might be unlikable, but his influence in the Black Demon City is
extremely big. Moreover, he is also the top alchemist in the Black Demon
Sect. The Black Demon Sect would not simply let things rest if anything
were to happen to him…” Owner Yao slowly walked forward after the
last alchemist left and sighed to Xiao Yan.
“That old fellow is a narrow-minded person. If you do not have any
overly important matters to deal with in the Black Demon City, it will be
best for you to leave quickly…”
“Ke ke, thank you for your reminder Owner Yao.” Xiao Yan smiled in a
noncommittal manner. He turned his hand and stored the medicinal
ingredients into his Storage Ring. His footsteps paused just before he
was about to leave as he suddenly asked, “Owner Yao, I have something
to ask and I wonder if you will answer me?”
“Nothing will be hidden from you if qie-shen knows about it.” Owner
Yao was startled before she immediately replied with a smile.
Xiao Yan licked his lips. He hesitated for a moment before slowly
inquiring, “May I know if Owner Yao has ever heard of the
‘Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva’?”
