Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-854
Xiao Yan’s eyes were heated as he looked over the enormous Magical
Beast’s rotten skin and its shriveled head. Although this thing seemed
no different than a pile of garbage, Xiao Yan already knew from his
refinements earlier that this mysterious Magical Beast corpse was
different than an ordinary Magical Beast. All of its treasures were
hidden in places where an ordinary person would have difficulty finding
unless they used an unusual method.
Xiao Yan waved his sleeves and a soft wind blew the Magical Beast’s
skin until it floated in the air. He flicked his finger and a jade-green
flame spluttered from his fingertip. Finally, it turned into a fierce
flame that burned beneath the floating skin.
The enormous skin began to slowly shrink under the grilling of the
jade-green flame. However, the expected Monster Core did not appear.
Xiao Yan slowly frowned when he saw this. After being scorched by the
‘Heavenly Flame’, this Magical Beast’s skin began to reveal
something a little different. Despite the latter’s weakened form, it
was actually able to endure this long above the ‘Heavenly Flame’
without turning into ashes. The only transformation was that it was like
the curling of a snake’s skin.
With the flow of time, the originally large Magical Beast’s skin had
already shrunk like a rolling picture. However, the Monster Core Xiao Yan
anticipated did not show any signs of appearing.
At this moment, Xiao Yan finally understood that this method of his
seemed to be a little wrong…
He wonder what he was doing wrong. In the end, he could only turn his
head to throw his gaze at Zi Yan. He only saw that see the latter was
gloatingly staring at his perspiration-filled body.
“Little girl, if you continue to watch the show, return to me those ten
bone spikes.” Xiao Yan rolled his eyes and viciously spoke.
Zi Yan curled her small mouth in the face of Xiao Yan’s threat. She
lazily said, “Stupid, the energy of the Monster Core is indeed hidden
in the Magical Beast’s skin. However, if you brutally use a ‘Heavenly
Flame’ to grill it, all you will do is cause the energy within to
gradually evaporate. In the end, this thing really will become something
Xiao Yan’s hand immediately shook when he heard this. The jade-green
flame that spread out instantly disappeared. He furiously cried, “Why
didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“You simply acted without asking me, yet you dare be angry with me
now.” Zi Yan spread her small hands and replied with the great
grievances she felt.
Xiao Yan was infuriated by this girl until he rolled his eyes. A moment
later, he could only inhale a breath of air and say with bitter smile,
“Little grandaunt, please stop playing with me. Hurry up and tell me
what to do.”
Zi Yan’s pushed her small lips out and snorted with great
unwillingness, “Use a drop of that green-red blood on the dry skin.
After that, use the ‘Heavenly Flame’ to grill it. That way, the
Monster Core can be forced out.”
“Are you certain?” Xiao Yan began to hesitate a little. He cautiously
questioned her when he heard that he needed to use the rare green-red
“You can forget it if you don’t believe me.” Zi Yan was extremely
unhappy about Xiao Yan’s doubt. She smacked her lips and said, “You
can grill it by yourself. I will watch where you go to cry after
destroying all of the energy hidden in it.”
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth and immediately said, “Forget it. I will
trust you this once.” Xiao Yan’s hand flipped after his voice
sounded. The jade bottle from earlier appeared in his hand. He curled his
finger and a drop of the green-red blood flew out. Finally, it floated in
front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan involuntarily felt some pain while he stared at this drop of
green-red blood that contained a shocking wild and violent energy. He had
only ended up obtaining five drops after refining all of the Magical
Beast’s flesh. In the end, he would have to use one drop of it at this
moment. If not for that Monster Core, he would not spend such a luxury
even if he was beaten to death.
Xiao Yan endured the pain and flicked his finger. The green-red blood
flew out before landing on the Magical Beast’s skin that was curling
The green-red blood had just landed on the dry skin when it swiftly
entered it. The dry skin, that contained a grayish-white color, appeared
to have suffered an intense stimulation as it began to wiggle like a
snake. A green-red color swiftly spread from the spot where the blood had
This green-red color spread at an extremely fast rate. Within a couple of
blinks, the dry skin was completely transformed. The grayish-white color
had been replaced by an unusual green-red color. It was completely
different from its earlier self. Moreover, the completely silent dry skin
emitted a shocking energy ripple while the green-red color spread.
Joy surfaced in Xiao Yan’s eyes when he saw this transformation. This
method had indeed been effective.
“Why aren’t you using the ‘Heavenly Flame’ to refine it? Do you
want to wait for the energy to scatter?” Zi Yan coldly snorted.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. The flame immediately moved
with his thoughts, and a jade-green flame was once again strutted out. It
immediately wrapped around the dry skin that had changed color.
Following the burning this time around, a situation that was similar to
the scene earlier ceased to appear. Instead, the green-red Magical Beast
skin began to slowly emit threads of green-red fog as it melted under the
high temperature of the ‘Heavenly Flame’. Xiao Yan sensed a
frightening energy ripple through this fog.
Joy flashed through Xiao Yan’s eyes when he observed this scene. He
quickly increased the temperature of the ‘Heavenly Flame’.
The green-red fog that seeped out of the Magical Beast’s skin began to
become denser following the intense burning of the jade-green flame. In
the end, it almost permeated the air in the room. The majestic energy
ripples began to grow more intense following the increase in the density
of the green-red fog. In the end, the green-red fog lingered in the room
like clouds. It emitted a frightening energy pressure that caused Xiao
Yan’s and Zi Yan’s expressions to change.
“What a frightening energy pressure…” Xiao Yan’s expression was
solemn as he looked at the green-red clouds in the air. He pulled Zi Yan
behind him and a thought passed through his mind. The Glazed Lotus Heart
Flame that was wrapped around the Magical Beast skin became increasingly
more hot and wild.
More and more of the green-red energy fog seeped from the Magical
Beast’s skin as the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame blazed. The energy fog
gathered without scattering. It lingered in the air above the room. An
kind of unusually low, deep roar faintly sounded from within it.

The blood in Xiao Yan’s body involuntarily began to show signs of
boiling when the roar sounded. It shocked him to the point where he
hurriedly circulated his Dou Qi to suppress this agitation.
An energy movement was suddenly transmitted from behind Xiao Yan after he
had just suppressed the agitation within his body. He suddenly turned
around only to see that Zi Yan’s body had gained a layer of purple
light. Under this layer of strange purple light, even Xiao Yan could
sense the hint of a dangerous aura. Moreover, her pained gem-like pupils
also hid a purple glint. Her gaze carried the threads of her wild nature
as she stared intently at the cluster of green-red clouds in the air. It
seemed as though she was facing some great enemy in the cloud.
Xiao Yan hurriedly cried out when he saw this unusual situation. The cry
that contained Dou Qi blasted Zi Yan’s ears, shaking her until she
With the recovery of Zi Yan’s consciousness, the purple glow that
lingered around her body slowly disappeared. She glanced at Xiao Yan with
eyes that were at a lost before muttering, “What is it?”
Xiao Yan’s expression gradually turned solemn when he saw her lost
manner. In his heart, he clearly knew that this mysterious Magical
Beast’s corpse was definitely not an ordinary thing. Moreover, it might
have some relation with Zi Yan’s actual form.
“Just what kind of Magical Beast is this thing? Despite having been
dead for so many years, such a frightening energy and pressure still
remains.” Xiao Yan knit his brows together as these thoughts flashed
across his heart.
A slight ‘chi chi’ noise suddenly sounded in the room while this
thought flashed in Xiao Yan’s mind. His eyes moved to the sound. He
looked over only to see that the Magical Beast’s dry skin, being burned
by the ‘Heavenly Flame,’ had completely turned to ashes. They
scattered through the air, forming a thin layer of gray ash that covered
Following the disappearance of the Magical Beast’s skin, the last
thread of the green-red fog slowly drifted into that thick green-red
This thread of green-red fog had just entered the green-red cloud when
the latter began to ripple. One could see a small vortex appearing in the
middle of the cloud. That cloud also followed its rotation as it slowly
began to spin.
Threads of majestic, wild, violent energy began to enter the vortex in
the middle as the cloud rotated. Following the energy’s entrance, the
size of the green-red cloud began to slowly shrink at a speed visible to
the naked eye…
Xiao Yan did not feel too much joy as observed this change. Instead, his
expression was solemn as he pulled Zi Yan two steps back. The Dou Qi
within his body began to swiftly circulate, ready to deal with any sudden
However, the troublesome matter that Xiao Yan had expected did not
appear. The vortex’s rotation speed began to quicken. The final thread
of the green-red cloud was absorbed into that vortex.
The vortex suddenly paused after the final layer of the green-red cloud
disappeared. Immediately, glaring green-red glow erupted from within it.
Xiao Yan waved his sleeve when he saw this sudden change. A layer of
jade-green flame appeared in front of him. He narrowed his eyes, and
watched the spot where the intense light was emitted.
The eruption of the intense light merely lasted for an instant before it
slowly disappeared. Xiao Yan’s eyes were gradually opened following the
scattering of the last thread of light, only for his gaze to suddenly
A green-red somewhat uneven-shaped crystal body was suspended in the the
air without any support in front of Xiao Yan’s eyes. A faint green-red
glow was emitted as it slowly rotated. Just this mere light energy that
had overflowed from it caused the surrounding space to show some signs of
Xiao Yan’s stared at this crystal body that clearly contained an
extremely frightening energy. He inhaled a deep breath of air and a
shocking heat erupted from his eyes.
“This… is this its Monster Core?”
