Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-884
The thunder-like cry resounded mightily over the Inner Academy. The echo
reverberated all around, shaking one’s heart as it did.
Human figures suddenly flashed and appeared from all over the Inner
Academy not long after this old cry sounded. Immediately, numerous human
figures appeared in the sky above the area where Xiao Yan was located.
The first person was naturally First Elder Su Qian. At this moment, his
expression was solemn as he studied the direction where the cry
originated from. He clenched his fist slightly and muttered, “Old
Ground Demon Ghost…”
Su Qian slowly lowered his head. He exchanged looks with Xiao Yan and the
others below before knitting his brows. It seemed that this trouble had
really found them.
Waves of rushing wind sounds suddenly appeared at the edge of the sky not
long after that old cry was transmitted from afar. A large group of small
black spots appeared in everyone’s sight a moment later. Within a
couple of blinks, they transformed into a group of people that were
filled with a fierce aura that soon paused in the sky above the Inner
Xiao Yan’s eyes slowly swept over this group of twenty or so human
figures. His gaze immediately stopped on two people right at the center
of the group. One of these two people was a familiar face who could not
be anyone else but Han Feng. The other person was a blood-haired old man
who wore a skull yellow robe. The old man’s face was skinny, and he
basically belonged to the type where there was only skin above their
bones. At a glance, he was just like a skull. His deep eyes revealed a
serene luster, appearing much like a ghost flame as it emitted a strange
and ghastly aura.
This blood-haired old man stood unsupported in the empty air. His deep
eyes indifferently watched the Inner Academy below. Each time his sleeves
flapped gently with the wind, the surrounding space would quietly emit a
slight ripple. These ripples might be extremely weak, but they were still
detected by Xiao Yan. The latter’s eyes immediately shrunk slightly.
Such a profound Dou Qi could really be considered something that he had
seen for the first time in many years. It seemed that this person should
be the founder of the Demon Flame Valley, the Old Ground Demon Ghost, who
First Elder Su Qian and the others were extremely afraid of.
A pressure descended from the sky after this group of human figures, with
a fierce aura permeating around, appeared. It covered the entire Inner
Academy. The expressions of some of the weaker students immediately
changed a little. When they exchanged glances with each other, their eyes
Su Qian frowned slightly as he sensed the pressure of silence from the
Inner Academy. He raised his head, looked at the blood-haired old man and
slowly said, “After having not seen you for so many years, it is
unexpected that your strength has once again advanced this much,”
“You are Su Qian, no…” The Old Ground Demon Ghost glanced faintly
at Su Qian and said, “It is unexpected that you have also advanced to
the Dou Zong class. When I met you back then, you were merely an Elder at
the peak of the Dou Huang class. You should be clear about the reason the
old me has come today. Hand over that little fellow called Xiao Yan. He
killed three Great Elders of my Demon Flame Valley. I must seek repayment
for this debt. Otherwise, how will my Demon Flame Valley survive within
the ‘Black-Corner Region?’”
Su Qian’s expression sank slightly. He coldly cried out, “Old Ground
Demon Ghost, there is an explanation for Xiao Yan killing Fang Yan and
the two others. It is unavoidable that there are some injuries when one
fights. Moreover, Fang Yan and the three others launched a fatal attack
on him. Should he just allow them to kill him?”
“The old me doesn’t care about any of this. All I know is that Xiao
Yan has killed three Elders of my Demon Flame Valley!” The Old Ground
Demon Ghost waved his sleeves and coldly laughed. “I will not waste my
breath with you. Directly call Mang Tian Chi out to discuss with me.”
A cold smile surfaced on Su Qian’s face when he heard this. He said,
“Old Ground Demon Ghost, aren’t you afraid of the other people
laughing at you by saying this? Would you still dare to lead such a great
force over if the headmaster was in the Inner Academy?”
A fierce glint immediately flashed across the Old Ground Demon Ghost when
he heard Su Qian’s ridicule tone. He said, “Su Qian, you shouldn’t
think that the old me is afraid of Mang Tian Chi. Moreover, even if I am
afraid of him, you do not have the qualification to say such words to the
old me! Today, the old me shall throw some harsh words here. If you do
not hand over Xiao Yan, this Inner Academy of yours need not continue
operating in the future!”
The expressions of the many Inner Academy Elders changed after the Old
Ground Demon Ghost’s words sounded. A fury immediately surged on their
faces. This old person who would not die was really too wild and arrogant.
“He he, to have such an expert remember my name has really caused the
little me to be surprised…” A clear laugh suddenly sounded over the
open ground. Jade-green fire wings was extended out from behind Xiao Yan.
He immediately flapped his wings and rushed to the sky before stopping
beside Su Qian. Finally, he spoke with a laugh to the Old Ground Demon
The Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan closely followed after Xiao Yan
revealed himself. Their bodies moved and they appeared in the sky. Both
of their gazes were staring at the Old Ground Demon Ghost’s group.
“You are Xiao Yan?” The Old Ground Demon Ghost dark and cold gaze
slowly turned to Xiao Yan. The moment he parted his voice, his dense
voice caused a chilliness to permeate the place despite it being daytime.
“He he, senior Ground Demon, he is Xiao Yan. Fang Yan and the other two
died by his hands. The Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva has also
landed in his hands.” Before Xiao Yan could reply, Han Feng, who was
beside the Old Ground Demon Ghost, interrupted and laughed. After
speaking, he also threw a dark and dense look at Xiao Yan. The savage
smile in his eyes was extremely obvious. It seemed that he had spent
quite a lot of effort in order to get Xiao Yan to die.
The Old Ground Demon Ghost nodded his head slightly. One could see
neither joy nor anger on his dry face. His serene ghost-fire-like eyes
stared at Xiao Yan, and he said in a calm voice, “Are you going to come
with me by yourself or should the old me personally act to break your
four limbs and lead you away?”
“Old Ground Demon Ghost, this is the Inner Academy, not your Demon
Flame Valley. You should look at where you are before acting so
arrogantly. The old me will also throw some harsh words here today. If
you dare to attack in this Inner Academy, the old me will let you know
that my Jia Nan Academy is not some soft mud even if I have to stake my
life!” Su Qian’s eyes suddenly widened as he cried out in a stern
The atmosphere in the sky suddenly become tense after this tit for tat
cry by Su Qian sounded. Everyone knew that it was likely that the matter
today would not be peacefully resolved…
“Tsk tsk, you are indeed worthy of being the First Elder of the Inner
Academy. What great prestige. However, do you really think that you are
Mang Tian Chi?” The Old Ground Demon Ghost let out a strange laugh as
he spoke in a sinister manner, “If you really insist on intervening
today, the old me does not mind giving you a lesson in front of all the
students within the Inner Academy. Otherwise they might end up offending
someone with their words in the future. Xiao Yan has killed three of my
Demon Flame Valley Elders. Anyone who helps him today will be an enemy of
my Demon Flame Valley!”
“I think that your motive is likely the Bodhisattva Body Transformation
Saliva, right? Your excuse is indeed quite good. Your skin is also
becoming thicker.” Xiao Yan suddenly laughed in a faint voice.
“What a sharp tongue!” The eyes of the Old Ground Demon Ghost
suddenly turned cold. His five fingers moved and five sharp Dou Qis that
contained a chillness suddenly shot explosively from his finger. They
carried a fierce wind as they shot toward Xiao Yan’s head.
The five cold glints were still around ten feet from Xiao Yan when a
graceful, white figure suddenly flashed and appeared. A majestic aura
erupted in a volcano-like manner. The gray-color Dou Qi that contained a
faint fishy scent shook the five sharp Dou Qi until they were scattered.
However, the white figure trembled slightly when the five sharp Dou Qi
scattered. The figure immediately emitted a soft muffled groan before
taking a step back.
Xiao Yan’s expression sunk when he saw the Little Fairy Doctor being
forced back. He hurriedly asked, “Are you alright?”
“I’m fine. This old fellow’s strength is extremely great. Moreover,
his Dou Qi contained a chill. With your current strength, you would
likely suffer a serious injury if you were to be struck by it.” The
Little Fairy Doctor shook her head. Her face revealed a solemness as she
The eyes of the Old Ground Demon Ghost flickered slightly after the
attack was scattered. He immediately looked at the Little Fairy Doctor
who had appeared in front of Xiao Yan and slowly said, “It is
unexpected that you have reached the Dou Zong class at such an age. How
unexpected. Don’t tell me that it is actually easy to rise to the Dou
Zong class nowadays?”
“Old fellow, do you really think that everyone is like you and
doesn’t improve after training for so many years?” Xiao Yan coldly
laughed. His words did not give this old fellow even the slightest face.
The corner of the Old Ground Demon Ghost’s eyes involuntarily twitched
after he heard these Xiao Yan’s mean words. A fierceness flashed within
his eyes. His talent was not considered poor. Otherwise, he would not
have reached this level. However, compared to Mang Tian Chi and those old
fellows from a similar generation who had left the ‘Black-Corner
Region’ he could be considered the last rank. Now, Mang Tian Chi had
long since become an elite Dou Zun. On the other hand, he was still
lingering in the Dou Zong class. This point had always been a pain in his
heart. These words of Xiao Yan now seemed to have viciously gave his
wound a bloody cut.
“Senior Ground Demon need not bother with this little fellow. His mouth
has always been vicious. Currently, it is useless to waste your breath on
him. You should just attack. Once you capture him, pull out all his
teeth, and cut his tongue. We will see just how he will argue with
another then!” Han Feng by the side spoke with a cold smile.
“You can just leave Su Qian to me. Xiao Yan and the white-clothed Dou
Zong will have to rely on Senior Ground Demon. With your ability, it
should not be difficult to finish them off.” A thread of cunningness
that was difficult to discover flashed through Han Feng’s eyes as he
spoke. He had always been quite afraid of Xiao Yan’s endless tactics,
and was quite fearful of the extremely mysterious Little Fairy Doctor. He
had now left them to the Old Ground Demon Ghost. He, on the other hand,
would contribute by handling First Elder Su Qian, who was much easier to
The Old Ground Demon Ghost nodded. A savage killing intent surged within
his deep eyes.
After sensing the dark and dense killing intent from the Old Ground Demon
Ghost, the many Elders in the Inner Academy immediately became cautious.
Powerful Dou Qi slowly flowed within their bodies as they prepared to act
at any moment.
While the sky’s atmosphere had turned into one where swords were drawn,
the many students of the Inner Academy below were speechless. Their
hearts were full of admiration for Xiao Yan since he dared to rudely mock
an elite Dou Zong. He was indeed worthy of being able to become a
legendary figure of the Jia Nan Academy. This courage was something no
one could match…
However, they were involuntarily a little worried on top of their
admiration. This time around, the one who had come was an old demon
expert who had been alive for as long as the mysterious headmaster.
