Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-891
The two gray-colored human figures had appeared without the slightest
forewarning. Xiao Yan had not sensed anything before his eyes saw them.
This sudden unexpected change had also caused his changing hand seals to
pause a little. He was silent for a moment as his eyes glanced at the
large fireball. Finally, he involuntarily cried out in a stern voice,
“Two sirs, the fireball is about to explode. Hurry up and leave!”
Having heard the reminder from Xiao Yan’s cry, the two gray-robed
figures beside the enormous fireball slowly raised their heads. Their old
and experienced eyes calmly glanced at Xiao Yan. This random glance
caused Xiao Yan to realize that the intensely churning wild and violent
medicinal strength within his body had actually calmed down…
Surprise involuntarily surfaced in Xiao Yan’s eyes as he sensed this
change within his body. They were able to suppress the revolting
medicinal strength within his body from such a great distance. This
strength… was it not too unnatural and frightening? Just who were these
two mysterious gray-robed experts? Since when did such frightening
experts exist in the ‘Black-Corner Region?’
While Xiao Yan was feeling shocked in his heart, Su Qian, Han Feng, and
the others who had withdrew some distance had also discovered the
existence of the two mysterious gray figures. They were startled. It was
awhile later before Su Qian appeared to have suddenly recalled something.
A wild joy swiftly surged up into his eyes as he softly muttered,
“These old fellows, who will not die… they are finally willing to
“First Elder, they are?” A couple of Inner Academy’s Elders behind
Su Qian asked with some surprise. Although they did not sense any
strength from the bodies of the two mysterious figures, they could
vaguely sense a kind of unusual pressure covering their hearts and souls.
“The Guardians of the Jia Nan Academy…” Su Qian slowly said,
“However, if the Jia Nan Academy is not faced with a situation of life
and death, they would never intervene. Fortunately, this time around…
otherwise, this Inner Academy…” Some fear involuntarily surfaced on
Su Qian’s face when he spoke until the end.
“Guardians?” The eyes of the many Inner Academy Elders flickered as
they looked at the two gray figures while they muttered softly to
The two mysterious gray figures did not respond even a little to the many
gazes that shot from all directions. They withdrew their gazes from Xiao
Yan. After which, they focused on the enormous fireball in front of them.
Shock flashed across the rippleless old-well-like eyes of theirs as they
sensed the destructive force contained within. They exchanged looks with
one another and two pairs of shriveled hands slowly extended from their
sleeves. After which, they slowly formed some strange seals.
Numerous intense spatial ripples suddenly spread from around the bodies
of the two gray figures following their actions. With the ripples, the
space around them had become extremely distorted. It was as though it was
filled with a countless number of folds, giving it a twisted appearance.
One’s sight was directly distorted by it.
The spatial ripple became increasingly intense. In the end, two strange
dark-black glows slowly appeared on the gray figures. Immediately, two
shriveled fingers gently floated through the air. After which, everyone
was shocked to discover that the space where the enormous fireball had
been located at appeared as though it was suddenly torn by a large
invisible hand. A huge spatial crack quietly appeared…
A voice that had experienced many vicissitudes of life slowly resounded
over the place as a frightening wind suddenly appeared in the sky.
Immediately, it gently pushed the enormous fireball, that contained a
destructive strength, into a bottomless black spatial crack.
The frightening temperature in the sky immediately fell when the last
corner of the enormous fireball entered the spatial crack. Two deep black
glows on the fingers of the two gray figures slowly flickered. One could
see the enormous spatial crack swiftly begin to close. Within less than a
minute, the spatial crack completely recovered. The sky had once again
become as smooth as a mirror…
The two gray figures finally sighed in relief after doing this. Even
though they had joined hands, such a large-scale manipulation of spatial
strength was not as easy as they had imagined. If the fireball’s
strength had not already caused many tiny cracks to appear in space, it
was likely that they would have had difficulty tearing such an enormous
line to chase the fireball into.
Even though this was the case, this act of theirs had also caused
everyone in the sky to descend into a dull state. Tearing space by simply
raising their hands and expelling the destructive fireball into it. Just
what kind of unnatural and frightening strength did one need in order to
do this? It was likely that even the Old Ground Demon Ghost would have
difficulty reaching this level. Just who were these two mysterious gray
Xiao Yan in the distant sky also heaved a great sigh of relief upon
seeing the fireball being expelled. If the fireball were to continue
swelling as it pleased, it was likely that the Inner Academy would cease
to exist. At that time, he would become the culprit who had destroyed the
Inner Academy. This was definitely something similar to a nightmare for
him. It seemed that he would really have to think thrice if he wanted to
use this frightening ‘Extermination Fire Lotus’…
Of course, this ‘Extermination Fire Lotus’ was formed from the merger
of four kinds of flame. Currently, half of the ‘Life Transforming
Flame’ he had absorbed back then had been used. If Xiao Yan were unable
to find another replacement in the future, he would only be able to use
it one more time. Moreover, whether he would succeed again or not was
unknown. This ‘Extermination Lotus Flame’ that he had relied on his
strength to successfully unleash had also been filled with luck.
A couple of rushing wind sounds were transmitted over while Xiao Yan felt
as though he had put down a heavy burden. Immediately, Su Qian, the
Little Fairy Doctor, and the others appeared beside Xiao Yan. After
seeing that Xiao Yan was not badly hurt, Su Qian finally waved his hand
and softly said, “Follow me. Don’t randomly say anything.”
Su Qian’s body moved after he spoke and he swiftly rushed to the two
gray figures in the sky. Xiao Yan hesitated a little behind before he
dragged the Little Fairy Doctor along and followed.
“Ke ke, Old Bai, Old Qian, thank you both for intervening today.
Otherwise, it is likely that this Inner Academy would cease to
exist…” Su Qian cupped his hands to the two gray figures and smiled
after appearing in front of them.
“Little fellow Su Qian, you are really not competent in your job as
First Elder. If the Inner Academy were to really suffer such a great
calamity, it is likely that you would have difficulty compensating for it
even if you were to die ten times.” A gray-clothed elder looked at Su
Qian before he frowned and chastised in a calm yet somewhat stern voice.
“Two old sirs, today’s matter is entirely caused by Xiao Yan. If you
wish to blame someone, Xiao Yan shall bear the burden. It has nothing to
do with First Elder Su Qian.” While Su Qian was smiling bitterly, Xiao
Yan, who had hurried over, quickly spoke up.
The two gray-clothed elders’ calm water-like eyes slowly swept over
Xiao Yan. Surprise suddenly flashed across their eyes. They opened their
mouths and said, “You… you are the young man who controlled the
‘Green Lotus Core Flame’ back then?”
Xiao Yan rubbed his head in the face of these two elders who actually
remembered him. Finally, he nodded.
“I recall that you seemed to be a mere small Da Dou Shi when we met you
back then. You have actually reached this level within a short few
years… the Jia Nan Academy has finally produced quite a good student.
If that old fellow Mang Tian Chi knew about this, he would likely be
proud.” A gray-clothed elder clicked his tongue as he spoke.
“Moreover, it seems that there is more than one kind of ‘Heavenly
Flame’ being controlled within your body. Being able to stably merge a
couple of ‘Heavenly Flames’ within one’s body. Such a Qi Method
would be considered unrivaled. Little fellow, you should be more careful
when you head out to train in the future…” The other gray-clothed
elder’s gaze was also somewhat surprised as he slowly spoke.
“This little fellow has learned from the both of you.” Xiao Yan
naturally did not dare to slight these two ultimate experts of unknown
origin. Therefore, he hurriedly replied.
“Huh?” The two gray-clothed elders nodded slightly. Their roaming
gazes suddenly paused on the Little Fairy Doctor beside Xiao Yan, and
they involuntarily exclaimed a little.
The Little Fairy Doctor involuntarily became cautious as she sensed the
gazes of the two gray-clothed elders. The Dou Qi within her body flowed
“He he, it is unexpected that I would actually be able to meet an owner
of a ‘Woeful Poison Body’ after so many years. It is really
surprising.” A gray-clothed elder laughed softly.
“Unfortunately… every owner of the ‘Woeful Poison Body’
eventually ends up with a similar fate…” The other gray-clothed elder
sighed somewhat emotionally.
Su Qian rolled his eyes upon hearing the three of them converse. He said
to the two gray-clothed elders, “The both of you should not scare
someone after you just appear. If the both of you had appeared earlier,
such a matter would not have happened. The both of you should be
extremely clear about the strength of the Old Ground Demon Ghost. What
can I do to him if he wants to come and find trouble? If Xiao Yan had not
stepped forward, no one knows just what the current situation would be.
“All of you are merely sleeping managers. The headmaster has not
returned once after many years and the both of you have hid yourselves
until one cannot even see your figures. Such a large academy relies
entirely on me to manage.” Su Qian’s resentment was extremely dense
when he spoke until the end.
The two gray-clothed elders could not help but become a little
embarrassed in the face of Su Qian’s reprimand. They had indeed lived
peacefully during these years without needing to worry about anything.
They immediately emitted a dry cough and said, “Didn’t we also
experience this back then. It is not so easy to be the First Elder…
However, is that old fellow not back yet… This is indeed extremely
irresponsible. It has been about a decade since he left, right…”
“If I had known this back then, I would not have taken over your
post…” Su Qian groaned somewhat regretfully. After which, he turned
his head to Xiao Yan and said, “You can call these two Old Bai and Old
Qian. They were also the First Elders of the Jia Nan Academy a long time
ago. Now, they have retired and are enjoying life.”
Xiao Yan hurriedly greeted the two of them when he heard this.
The two gray-clothed elders waved their hands, indicating that there was
no need for all these greetings. After which, they slowly said, “The
Old Ground Demon Ghost, huh? We have also not seen each other for many
years. It is unexpected that we are actually able to meet today, don’t
The two people’s gazes strangely turned to an empty space not far away
when they finished speaking. A strange smile hung on their old faces.
