Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-853
“You know what’s valuable in this dried corpse, right?”
The heat in Xiao Yan’s eyes was slowly withdrawn as he suddenly stared
at Zi Yan beside the table. He spoke in a somewhat fervent manner. If not
because of this girl’s prodding, it was likely that he would never have
found out that this claw would reveal such a mysterious scene after being
grilled by the ‘Heavenly Flame’.
Xiao Yan glanced at this green-red spike that was exceptionally sharp
despite its small size. He grabbed it and gently pulled it across the
surface of the table. Immediately, the hard table that was made from
solid wood broke apart like beancurd. The point where it broke apart was
as smooth as a mirror.
“What a sharp bone spike…” The sharpness of this thing caused Xiao
Yan to gently inhale a breath of cool air. Almost instantly, the gaze he
used to look at Zi Yan became an ardent one. Since this girl knew the
method to resolve the secret of this claw, it was likely that she was
also aware of other things, right?
Zi Yan merely lifted her exquisite chin in a proud manner in the face of
Xiao Yan’s gaze. She said, “You should help this young miss refine
these ten pieces and help me use them to create a knuckle glove. Hee hee,
this will be my weapon in the future.”
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately lowered his head
to study this sharp bone spike in his hand. The moment he thought of
being struck by this small thing, he involuntarily began to shiver. If
this thing cooperated with Zi Yan’s frightening strength in delivering
a punch, it was likely that even an expert Dou Huang would suffer a
serious blow even if he did not die.
In his anxiety to know about the secrets of this mysterious Magical
Beast, Xiao Yan could not be bothered to find fault with this little
fellow who got carried away. He carefully placed the bone spike in his
hand down before picking up the remaining nine pale-white nails. A
jade-green flame curled and rose as these nails were thrown in with a
The nine pale-white nails once again revealed a similar change following
the heat from the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame. The pale-white color slowly
disappeared as an unusual green-red color replaced it. They also shrank
The grilling continued for around half an hour or so before the
jade-green flame suspended in front of of him slowly disappeared. The
nine green-red bone spikes within it also fell. Immediately, Xiao Yan
waved his hand, and they were wrapped by a gentle wind as they landed
gently on the remaining half of the table.
The surprise expression in Xiao Yan’s eyes became much paler after
these ten bone spikes were grilled. He exhaled and wiped off the cold
sweat on his forehead.
Zi Yan by his side happily grabbed the ten green-red bone spikes. After
which, she carefully put them into her pouch before smiling at Xiao Yan.
“How did you know that the claws would turn into this manner after
being roasted by the ‘Heavenly Flame’?” Xiao Yan glanced at Zi Yan.
He asked a question somewhat uncertainly. Thinking back to Zi Yan’s
manner earlier, it was clear that she had already known that these things
were useful to her. Otherwise, she would not have specifically dug out
what seemed to be useless pale-white bone-like nails.
“I am also not certain. In any case, I just had the feeling that those
things would be useful to me, so I extracted them.” Zi Yan knit her
delicate eyebrows, and replied with an uncertain tone in the face of Xiao
Xiao Yan was startled upon hearing this. His frown quickly deepened.
Turning his head slightly, he shifted his gaze to the mysterious Magical
Beast corpse that had been disemboweled. He muttered, “Don’t tell me
that you are really related to this thing? Unfortunately, this thing has
already been dead for far too long. One can no longer make out its shape.
Otherwise, we might be able to guess something based on its appearance.”
“In any case, it won’t be of the same species as me. Moreover, I feel
a great discomfort for it. I even felt extremely cheerful when I saw it
had been split apart by you.” Zi Yan curled her lips as she replied.
“Cheerful? Don’t tell me that this Magical Beast’s original form is
an enemy of your species?” Xiao Yan was stunned as he inquired.
“I have no idea. I am not even aware of what kind of Magical Beast I
am. Who cares what it is?” Zi Yan knit her brows and replied.
“Forget it, let’s not bother about what it actually is. Girl, next,
you should be telling me how to deal with this dried corpse, right?”
Xiao Yan changed the topic and smiled. He spoke after seeing that Zi Yan
was unwilling to talk about it.
“Burn it. Burn the ugly flesh. There will naturally be something that
you want.” Zi Yan waved her hand, and responded in a simple manner.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. He immediately ceased speaking
any nonsense as he curled his hand. A suction force surged out and pulled
a large piece of dense white flesh in front of him. He immediately opened
his mouth and spat out a jade green flame. It spurted out of his mouth
and wrapped around that cluster of flesh.
Waves of frighteningly high temperatures spread out after coming into
contact with the flesh. Finally, all of them entered that piece of flesh.
The dense, white meat repeatedly emitted a ‘chi chi’ sound as the
high temperature pervaded it. Its size also repeatedly shrank under the
flame. This burning continued for around five minutes or so before the
table-sized flesh turned to the size of a head. Its white color had also
disappeared. A green-red gradually surged onto it.
This kind of green-red color became increasingly denser as the flame
burned with greater intensity. In the end, it completely agglomerated
together. This agglomeration transformed into a drop of green-red blood
in front of Xiao Yan’s joyous eyes. It seeped out of the flesh, passing
through the flame to drip down.
Xiao Yan’s eyes were sharp and his hands were nimble as he swiftly took
out a high grade jade bottle from his Storage Ring. After which, he
captured the drop of green-red blood in it.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief only after obtaining that drop of blood. He
raised his head and glanced at the burning jade-green flame. After this
drop of green-red blood fell, the flesh disappeared into nothing within
the flame. Not even a piece of ash remained behind.
With a gentle flick of Xiao Yan’s finger, the jade-green flame in front
of him slowly disappeared. He lowered his head to glance at the jade
bottle in his hand. His nose gently sniffed at the mouth of the bottle. A
rich wild and violent energy, that caused him feel shocked, followed his
nostrils and entered his body. The shocked Xiao Yan hurriedly used his
Dou Qi to suppress it. He continued to be busy for awhile before he
resolve that wild, violent energy with a ‘Heavenly Flame’.
After that wild and violent seed in the pure energy was dispersed by the
refining power of the ‘Heavenly Flame’, that exquisitely powerful
energy began to circulate. It quietly spread into Xiao Yan’s limbs and
The scattering of this energy caused caused Xiao Yan’s heart to be
startled. He suddenly realized that the physical strength that was
contained within the muscles in his skin seemed to have quietly increased
a little. Although this increase was extremely minute, it was still
clearly sensed by Xiao Yan.
“This blood… actually possesses the special effect of strengthening
one’s physical strength?’ Xiao Yan recovered, and threw his gaze at
the jade bottle in his hand. A heat gradually surged into his eyes.
Normally, a person’s physical strength could only rely on one’s
talent and effort. It was unexpected that this mysterious green-red blood
would possess such a mysterious effect.
Xiao Yan inhaled a breath of cool air. His heart once again felt shocked
by the mysterious Magical Beast corpse. He immediately laughed as he
suddenly sucked with his hand. A large piece of meat was pulled over and
the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame was summoned once again.
After personally sensing this mysterious green-red blood’s beauty, Xiao
Yan would naturally not think that this corpse was just a pile of
completely useless rotten flesh. Over the next hour, he spent a great
effort to burn that pile of pale-white flesh with the Glazed Lotus Core
Xiao Yan had obtained more green-red blood through this burning. However,
the only thing that caused him to feel slightly dissatisfied was that he
had only managed to refine a mere five drops of green-red blood even
after burning half a room of flesh.
Xiao Yan studied the jade bottle with the five drops of green-red blood.
They did not merge together despite being stored in the same place. He
could only helplessly shake his head. With a wave of his hand, he made
the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame in front of him disappear. He parted his
mouth and smiled when he put the jade bottle into his Storage Ring. It
was unexpected that this Magical Beast Corpse, which the Black Emperor
Sect saw as worthless, would actually end up being turned into such a
thing in his hands. From the way Xiao Yan saw it, the value of these five
green-red drops of blood were definitely not worth any less than the
jade-like bone wings. From a certain perspective, they might even be
greater than the latter…
This liquid blood contained an extremely wild and violent energy. From
the way the interior of Xiao Yan’s body churned after he had inhaled a
single breath earlier, one could not carelessly consume this thing.
Otherwise, it would definitely cause one to end up with the miserable end
of having one’s body burst apart. However, this was not considered a
difficult point of view from Xiao Yan’s perspective. He was an
alchemist and had experienced such wild and violent seeds in pure energy
before. As long as he was given sufficient time, he would definitely be
able to absorb all of the drops of blood. At that time, how high would
the physical strength of his body soar?
Therefore, Xiao Yan did not waste the five medicinal pills this time
around. If that old fellow Mo Tian Xing knew that Xiao Yan had gained
such a great benefit from this dried corpse, it was likely that he would
be so furious that he would end up vomiting blood on the spot. This thing
was something that their Black Emperor Sect had studied a countless
number of times. However, they did not find anything unusual other than
its jade-like bone wings were extraordinary…
Yet, it was these things, that they thought had no value, that allowed
Xiao Yan to gain a great bargain without reason.
Xiao Yan slowly recovered from his excitement. His gaze once again swept
over the remaining shriveled head and the enormous skin. He involuntarily
licked his lips. Until this moment, the most precious thing, the Monster
Core, had yet to appear.
Normally speaking, a Monster Core that had agglomerated all of a Magical
Beasts energy would not simply just disappear out of the blue. In other
words, either the shriveled head or the skin that remained should hide
the important Monster Core.
Xiao Yan involuntarily swallowed a mouthful of saliva. He thought about
how the Monster Core of a fierce beast, that had been about to
breakthrough to the eighth rank, was about to land in his hand. His
entire body felt hot.
