Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-860
The face that appeared in front of Xiao Yan was not an unfamiliar one.
Back then, it was he who had personally ended that person’s life. This
person was the first disciple of Yao Lao, Xiao Yan’s senior, and the
Pill Emperor in the ‘Black-Corner Region’ back then, Han Feng!
The current Han Feng clearly appeared a little older compared to back
then. His eyes, which were glaring at Xiao Yan, was filled with a thick
savageness. If not for Xiao Yan back then, he could have continued to
dominate this ‘Black-Corner Region’. In the end, everything had
completely collapsed because of Xiao Yan. Not only did he lose his
greatly sought after position, but he also ended up with a miserable fate
of having his spirit parted with his physical body. If he hadn’t
controlled a ‘Heavenly Flame’ like the ‘Sea Heart Flame’ nor
wisely found an opportunity to gift it to a zun-zhe in the ‘Hall of
Souls’, it was likely that he would have long since been taken by the
‘Hall of Souls’ to be refined. How would he be able to live until now?
However, it was fortunate that that zun-zhe from the ‘Hall of Souls’
had specifically dispatched someone to find the body of an elite Dou Zong
for Han Feng on account of him taking the initiative to deliver the
‘Heavenly Flame’. After which, he struck that person until his spirit
scattered and allowed Han Feng to swallow and absorb the body, allowing
the latter to gain possession of it. Only then did Han Feng regain his
current strength. However, this was merely a method to delay time. This
body could at the very most enable him to live for over a decade. After
that, the physical body would automatically crack apart. His spirit could
only disappear along with this rotting physical body. He would no longer
have any opportunity to escape alive…
Of course, regardless of what would happen, that was a matter that would
happen over a decade later. Being able to live for such a long time was
already considered a great grace to Han Feng, who had been about to turn
into nourishment. During these remaining days of his, his viciousness and
killing intent for Xiao Yan, the person who had turned him into this
manner, had gradually soared to a frightening level. Hence, he had rushed
to the ‘Black-Corner Region’ after having just appeared. If he had
not caught wind of the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva during his
journey, he would likely have straight up attacked ‘Xiao Gate’ and
killed everyone within it to vent the hatred in his heart.
As the saying goes, enemies would become angrier when they meet. However,
Han Feng and Xiao Yan had collided head-on. At this moment, the killing
intent within the former’s heart was about to physically erupt. His
vicious and savage eyes firmly stared at Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan did not display any emotion that suggested he had forgotten
himself in the face of the vicious eyes from Han Feng. After the initial
surprise within his heart past, he began to gradually calm down. His gaze
faintly swept over Han Feng as he coldly laughed, “It is unexpected
that you, a traitor, would actually still be alive. How unexpected…”
“This is all thanks to you my good junior.” Han Feng’s gaze was
vicious as he ferociously laughed. “It is likely that I would have
difficulty achieving this strength if not for you. This time around, I
will extract your soul and let you taste what is called a fate worse than
Xiao Yan’s eyes were indifferent. He was completely unmoved by Han
Feng’s threat. Although he was unaware of the reason why Han Feng’s
strength had soared to such an extent, the current Xiao Yan was also no
longer the young man who had to rely on the great increase in his
strength to reach the peak of the Dou Wang class.
The current Xiao Yan was already a genuine four star Dou Huang. During
these few years, he had met and even exchanged blows with quite a number
of elite Dou Zongs. Moreover, it was not as though no elite Dou Zong had
fallen in his hands. Hence, Xiao Yan was not too worried about Han Feng,
whose strength had soared to the Dou Zong class. If they were to really
engage in an all out battle, it was not certain just who would end up
“The interior of your body no longer has the aura of that old fellow…
that’s right, I had forgotten. That old fellow actually fell into the
hands of the ‘Hall of Souls’. Why? Did he not have a high appraisal
of you? Did he not think that you were able to protect him? Ha ha, now
that I look at it, the eyesight of that old man who will not die is just
as poor as it was in the past!” Han Feng slyly laughed when he saw that
Xiao Yan was expressionless.
A jade-green flame suddenly surged from Xiao Yan’s body. Its
frighteningly high temperature instantly spread over the sky. The forest
below began to emit a curling white smoke because of the high
temperature. A moment later, it finally turned into a fierce flame that
began to spread.
The jade-green flame wrapped Xiao Yan within it. At this moment, Xiao
Yan’s expression was unusually ferocious. His dark-black eyes were
filled with jade-green flames. They appeared extremely frightening, just
like two clusters of serene-green ghost fires. A cruel killing intent
pounced out onto Xiao Yan’s ferocious face like a fierce prehistoric
beast. Such a killing intent had never been present before.
These words of Han Feng had truly hacked at Xiao Yan’s weakest point.
Yao Lao was forcefully captured by the ‘Hall of Souls’ right in front
of him, but he could only just watch as it happened. He was unable to
rescue him. That kind of helpless feeling was just like a poisonous snake
that repeatedly bit at Xiao Yan’s inner heart. Yao Lao had spent an
extremely great amount of effort on him. The many years of training had
allowed him to walk away from being a useless person until this level.
Xiao Yan’s feelings for Yao Lao could basically be comparable to
feelings he had for his father… however, despite the great effort that
Yao Lao had put in because of him, the result of it was that the latter
was still unable to escape being captured by the ‘Hall of Souls’…
This kind of ending was just like a sharp knife that violently cut back
and forth at Xiao Yan’s heart, causing Xiao Yan to constantly remain
remorseful. If his strength had been great enough, Yao Lao would not have
been captured, and he would be able to easily rescue his father. All of
this would not have happened…
At this moment, Xiao Yan once again understood the importance of strength
after Han Feng pulled apart the bleeding wound in his heart. A crazy
fanaticism to the pursuit of strength surged within his heart.
With strength, he would be able to rescue his father and Yao Lao from the
hands of the ‘Hall of Souls’. With strength, he would be able to go
look for Xun Er, ignore the frightening background behind her and ask her
to stay beside him forever!
Xiao Yan’s strength was different from an ordinary person’s. His
strength originated from the ‘Heavenly Flames’. If he wished to
become strong to the point where he need not even fear the ‘Hall of
Souls’, he would need to crazily swallow ‘Heavenly Flames’!
“‘Heavenly Flames’… after this matter is over, I will focus on
searching for the ‘Heavenly Flames’. Anyone who hinders me shall
die!” A low roar sounded within Xiao Yan’s heart. He abruptly raised
his head and shot his ferocious gaze toward Han Feng. His voice was
filled with a stern killing intent that caused one’s pores to open wide.
“Bastard Han Feng. If I do not personally kill you, this bastard who
betrays his teacher, I, Xiao Yan, will swear that I will not continue
The dense voice seemed to have been emitted from the depths of hell. It
carried an obsession that was difficult to erase as it lingered over the
sky. It caused the expressions of those from the Demon Flame Valley and
Han Feng to slightly change.
The Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan by Xiao Yan’s side were a little
surprised as they looked at Xiao Yan. Ever since they were acquainted
with him, they had never seen Xiao Yan’s emotion become this violent.
Clearly, the words of Han Feng earlier had touched the scar on Xiao
“Junior is really bold but we will just have to see if you have the
qualification to kill me!” Han Feng finally shook his head and coldly
laughed a moment later.
“He might not have it, but I do!”
A cold voice slowly sounded as the Little Fairy Doctor softly stepped
forward. Her grayish-purple eyes stared emotionless at Han Feng as her
somewhat pale, delicate hand was extended. There was an unusual gray
energy quietly lingering on it.
Han Feng immediately frowned when he heard the Little Fairy Doctor speak.
He was clearly aware of the latter’s strength. Even the current him
would have quite a troublesome time dealing with her. Immediately, his
eyes drifted to Xiao Yan as he coldly laughed, “Junior, even this
senior has to respect you for your affinity with women. However, when
will you be able to rely on your own strength? This act of yours has
really embarrassed that old fellow’s reputation.”
Xiao Yan’s eyes were ferocious as he stared at Han Feng. A moment
later, his savage face suddenly revealed a smile as he softly said,
“Senior, please don’t use such tactics. Although you are currently
neither human nor a ghost, you were after all once the Pill Emperor of
the ‘Black-Corner Region’. Hence, please don’t embarrass
The harsh words of Xiao Yan caused Han Feng’s face to violently twitch.
He inhaled a breath of air and suppressed the fury in his heart before
laughing furiously, “Despite not having met for a couple of years, your
tongue has remained as sharp as ever. However, I wonder if your strength
has also advanced to such an extent?”
“This is something Senior will know after you try…” Xiao Yan
slightly smiled. The ferocity on his face had also slowly become calm at
this moment. However, the killing intent within his dark-black eyes had
increased instead of decreased. The current Xiao Yan could be considered
someone with much experience. He was naturally aware that being enraged
in this kind of situation would not benefit him by even a little.
Mo Tian Xing was slightly startled as he looked at the daggers drawn
atmosphere between Han Feng and Xiao Yan. Fight, just fight. It would be
best if the both of you ended up seriously injuring one another. The best
case would be for everyone to die. In that way, he would not only be able
to obtain that Zong Breaking Pill, but would also be able to successfully
obtain that strange spiritual swallowing method of the Demon Flame
The eyes of Old Ying Shan within the col also revealed a gloating
expression. Such a situation was naturally the best for him…
“Do you really think that the three of you can deal with us?” Han
Feng coldly laughed. Fang Yan on his side was already an expert who had
half a foot in the Dou Zong class. With the cooperation of the other few
Demon Flame Valley’s Elders, they would even be able to fight with an
elite Dou Zong.
Intending to agree with Han Feng, Fang Yan and the Elders from the Demon
Flame Valley behind all began to coldly laugh in unison. Powerful Dou Qi
surged to the sky. Their auras were quite frightening when they merged.
“If they are not sufficient, why don’t you include the old me?”
Just as the Elders from the Demon Flame Valley were acting haughty, an
old laugh rolled through the sky like thunder. Immediately, a human
figure rushed over and appeared in the sky of this area within a couple
of breath’s time. A torrent-like majestic aura surged out and
suppressed the aura of the Elders from the Demon Flame Valley.
Han Feng’s expression immediately sank when he saw the old human figure
appear in the sky.
