Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-864
The grayish-brown flame remained suspended above Xiao Yan’s head. It
appeared like a grayish sun that repeatedly emitted a frighteningly high
temperature that caused the air to distort. This kind of temperature was
already very close to the Green Lotus Core Flame that Xiao Yan had
obtained back then…
Of course, this flame was merely close to it. A ‘Heavenly Flame’ was
a completely unique thing in this world. Nothing could replicate it. This
point was something that Xiao Yan was clearly aware of in his heart.
Although this so-called ‘Flame Creation Skill’ was mysterious, it was
far from the level of being able to create a ‘Heavenly Flame.’ At its
very best, it could only achieve something that was very close to that of
a ‘Heavenly Flame’. Always and forever… it would never be able to
surpass the later!
Although Xiao Yan was thinking in this manner, Fang Yan and the two
Elders from the Demon Flame Valley clearly did not think the same way.
They were filled with a great confidence by this grayish-brown flame
formed from the merger of Dou Qi from their bodies. During these years,
the ‘Fake Heavenly Flame’ that they had formed had caused quite a
number of opponents to perish in their hands. These people included some
of the peak experts within the ‘Black-Corner Region’.
The grayish-brown flame curled and slowly rose. It abruptly split into
three clusters amid Feng Yan’s cold laughter. After which, they flew
out and entered the bodies of the three Elders.
The aura that spread from the surface of Fang Yan’s group suddenly
turned a lot wilder and more violent when the grayish-brown flame entered
their bodies. Waves of hot pressurizing wind merged together and swept
toward Xiao Yan like floodwaters.
Xiao Yan’s clothes fluttered unceasingly as he stood within the
torrent-like pressure. However, his expression did not change much. His
gaze swept over the three of them before he suddenly laughed, “You
three. Although you have merged and formed such a flame, doesn’t it
appear as though you have injured yourself before you even hurt
Fang Yan coldly laughed when he heard Xiao Yan’s laughter, “Chief
Xiao really has sharp eyes. Each time we use the ‘Flame Creation
Skill’ to merge and form this ‘Life Transforming Flame’, the
interior of our bodies indeed ends up with quite a number of burns.
However, it’s not considered much if we are able to snatch the
‘Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva…”
“So this kind of flame is named ‘Life Transforming Flame’ by all of
you… the ‘Flame Creation Skill’ of the Demon Flame Valley is indeed
unique. However, compared to a true ‘Heavenly Flame’, this ‘Life
Transforming Flame’ of yours is still a little inferior.” Xiao Yan
slightly smiled. His hand slowly moved and formed seals in front of him
before it suddenly stilled.
“Skyfire Three Mysterious Change!”
The cry sounded within Xiao Yan’s heart as an emerald-colored flame
streaked from his body like a volcano. It lingered over the surface of
his body for a moment before it gradually withdrew into his body.
Following the withdrawal of the flame, Xiao Yan’s aura suddenly soared.
The actual strength of Xiao Yan was that of a four star Dou Huang. Adding
this to his physical strength, which far exceeded those experts of his
level, his Qi Method, and the increase in his strength from borrowing of
the ‘Sky Fire Three Mysterious Change’, he was able to contend
against someone at the peak of the Dou Huang class without using any Dou
Skills. Of course, he was a little weaker when compared to Fang Yan, who
was an expert with half a foot in the Dou Zong level.
“I have long heard that chief Xiao is in possession of a ‘Heavenly
Flame’. Please show it to us today and allow us three old fellows to
widen our perspective. Now that we think about it, this ‘Life
Transforming Flame’ of ours has never contended against a true
‘Heavenly Flame’. Today, we will ask for advice from chief Xiao.”
Fang Yan coldly laughed. His face did not reveal the slightest surprise
in the face of Xiao Yan’s soaring aura. Clearly, they were already
aware that Xiao Yan possessed a secret technique that could raise his
The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth was slowly lifted into a sly arc when he
heard this. If they really wished to fight three against one, he would
honestly have to spend quite a bit of effort. However, these three old
fellow did not choose to use Dou Qi to fight. Instead, they wanted to
challenge Xiao Yan with a ‘Heavenly Flame’. This was undoubtedly
using their weak point to challenge another person’s strong point. It
was no different from seeking to make things difficult for themselves.
Xiao Yan gently flicked his finger and a cluster of flames was suspended
in his hand. This cluster of flame was not an emerald-jade color.
Instead, it was a pale-green one. It was not the Glazed Lotus Heart
Flame, but the first ‘Heavenly Flame’ of Xiao Yan that he had not
used for a long time, the Green Lotus Core Flame…
This ‘Heavenly Flame’ was the first flame that Xiao Yan possessed. He
was extremely familiar with controlling it. The flame was little
different from the moving clouds and flowing water under his control.
There was not the slightest unfamiliar feeling to it.
Xiao Yan gaze drifted after he had displayed the Green Lotus Core Flame.
At this moment, Su Qian and the Little Fairy Doctor were each being
delayed by Han Feng and Mo Tian Xing. Both of them had descended into an
intense battle. On the other side, Mo Ya and Qi Shan had gradually rose
into the air to head to Zi Yan with ill intent. Clearly, they planned to
join hands and subdue Zi Yan…
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept over Mo Ya and Qi Shan, causing his eyes
narrowed. A sharp cold glint flashed in them. He had never expected these
two bastards to be this unscrupulous to actually bully a little girl with
Zi Yan threw her gaze over after having seemed to have sensed Xiao
Yan’s gaze. Both pair of eyes entangled with each other before the
former saucily smiled. A clear voice was transmitted into Xiao Yan’s
ears, “Relax, I can deal with these two fellows. Just remain relaxed
and deal with those three old fellows who will not die…”
Xiao Yan was slightly startled upon hearing Zi Yan’s voice. Seeing that
the latter did not reveal an overly worried look, Xiao Yan felt much more
relaxed. Zi Yan’s original form was extremely mysterious. Moreover, her
background also did not seem to be simple. She also possessed a
never-ending number of tactics. Although she had only entered the Dou
Huang class for a short period of time, her fighting strength was quite
great. Even though Mo Ya and Qi Shan had joined hands, it would not be a
simple matter to finish off Zi Yan within a short period of time…
“Chief Xiao, now is not the time to be distracted…” Fang Yan gave a
dense laugh while Xiao Yan’s gaze was looking in all directions. The
seal in his hands moved immediately and the grayish-brown flame suddenly
turned into a half-a-foot-large fire bird. The fire bird flapped its
wings as its sharp fire beak attacked Xiao Yan in a lightning-like manner.
The grayish-brown fire bird flew through the sky. Within the blink of an
eye, it appeared at a spot over ten feet from Xiao Yan. However, before
it could flap its wings again, a pale-green fire net strangely extended
out before wrapping around the grayish-brown fire bird.
Fang Yan’s eyes turned slightly cold after the fire bird was wrapped.
His hand seals moved and the fire bird swiftly expanded like a balloon
that had been filled with air. The grayish flame repeatedly grilled the
pale-green fire net, cooking the later until it became slightly
Xiao Yan let out a soft exclamation as he sensed the change in the fire
net that was formed from the Green Lotus Core Flame. An unusual glint
flickered in his eyes. This ‘Fake Heavenly Flame,’ that Fang Yan’s
three men team had used Do Qi to create, did indeed possess some unique
qualities. At the very least, it was much stronger than some ‘Beast
Flame’. However… a ‘Fake Heavenly Flame’ was ultimately fake
regardless of how strong it was. In front of a genuine ‘Heavenly
Flame’, it would still be extremely fragile!
A cold smile surfaced on the corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth as he clenched
his hand. The fire bird, that had swelled to the point where it was about
to break the green fire net, abruptly emitted an intense fire glow.
Suddenly, it began to shrink!
The tight shrinking of the fire net caused a ‘Puchi’ sound to appear.
The enormous fire bird was strangled by the green fire net into flame
spots. Finally, they surged out of the flame like a swarm of bees and
entered Fang Yan’s body from all directions.
A muffled snort sounded in Fang Yan’s throat after the flame returned
to his body. Clearly, he was slightly injured during the flame collision
Xiao Yan was once again surprised by the ‘Life Transforming Flame’
ability to split itself apart to dodge the fire net lock. Disbelief
surged in his heart. “If I capture this so-called ‘Life Transforming
Flame’ and use ‘Flame Mantra’ to swallow it… I wonder if it would
enable the ‘Flame Mantra’ to evolve a little?”
This ‘Life Transformation Flame’ that Fang Yan’s three men group
had displayed could be said to be the strongest type of flame among all
the non-Heavenly Flames fire that Xiao Yan had seen. As long as it was a
flame, ‘Flame Mantra’ would be able to swallow and refine it. This
was just like the ‘Purple Flame’ that Xiao Yan had refined back
then… Of course, with the current class of the ‘Flame Mantra’.
Swallowing any ordinary beast flame would no longer be useful. However.
This ‘Life Transforming Flame’ was a little different. There might be
some benefits if he were to capture it…
This ‘Life Transforming Flame’ was formed from the gathering of all
the Dou Qi that belonged in Fang Yan and the other two Elders. If he
captured it, the strength of Fang Yan and the other two would definitely
be reduced. No one knew just how much more time they would need in order
to return to this level. The dense smile on the corner of Xiao Yan’s
mouth had unknowingly turned even denser when he thought until this point.
“Since all of you wish to play with fire, I shall teach all of you what
is called burning oneself when playing with fire!” Xiao Yan muttered in
his heart. A flame was shapeless and without substance. It was naturally
extremely difficult for an ordinary person to capture it. However, this
was not too difficult for Xiao Yan who possessed two types of ‘Heavenly
“Second brother, third brother!” Fang Yan, who had suffered a hidden
disadvantage, revealed a slightly dark and solemn expression when this
thought was lingering in Xiao Yan’s heart. The former cried in a sharp
voice, “Star Fire Phoenix!”
The two Demon Flame Valley’s Elders were slightly startled when they
heard this sharp cry by Fang Yan. They exchanged glances and immediately
clenched their teeth. The seals on their hands changed and a dense
grayish-brown flame suddenly surged from their bodies in all directions.
They immediately entwined with each other in the sky. When Fang Yan
completely merged the ‘Life Transforming Flame’ within his body, an
unusually intense energy ripple swiftly spread from the grayish-brown
The grayish-brown flame repeatedly churned like a cloud layer. A moment
later, a clear bird cry suddenly carried a hot wind from the
grayish-brown flame. Fire clouds rippled and an enormous gray-colored
fire bird, over a hundred feet in size, slowly agglomerated within the
“It is not easy to be able to agglomerate the flame into such a
shape…” Surprise also flashed across Xiao Yan eyes as he observed the
enormous divine bird in the sky made out of flames. An unusual smile
surged onto his face as a soft mutter quietly sounded.
“This star phoenix should have been formed from the fire that was
agglomerated within these three people’s bodies… since this is the
case, I shall unceremoniously accept all of them!”
