Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-897
Hot, wild wind whistled past Xiao Yan’s ears as his body fell down the
hole. As he approached the underground magma world, the surrounding air
also became much hotter.
A faint jade-green flame flowed from Xiao Yan’s body, isolating the
high temperature of the outside world. His gaze stared at the pure-red
color below, and he gently inhaled a breath of air. A caution quietly
rose within his heart. This kind of place was not one that was used to
play. It was really dangerous here. It was definitely not wrong to be
careful. The vague summoning feeling earlier continued for a short
instant before it scattered and became invisible. This kind of strange
scene caused Xiao Yan to wonder if it was an illusion.
Xiao Yan continued down for awhile before his eyes suddenly widened. At
this moment, the thing that appeared in front of him was a magma world
that was vast, and seemed to be endless. The large bright-red magma pool
emitted a hot energy that caused one to feel asphyxia. Even though one
was near it, the hot air caused one to have difficulty enduring on.
Enormous bubbles surged out of the magma and appeared on the surface.
Finally, they burst apart one at a time. Waves of hot air, accompanied by
white smoke, spread from them. The vapor that originated from deep
underground possessed a shocking heat and a smell that made one
uncomfortable. It was rumored that this kind of vapor contained a kind of
fire poison that would cause one quite a lot of trouble if one absorbed
it into one’s body.
A thought passed through Xiao Yan’s heart as his jade-like bone wings
slowly spread from his back. The wings gently flapped and stabilized his
body above the magma world.
Xiao Yan’s gaze cautiously swept around him as his body remained
suspended in mid-air. This magma world was the same as it was when he had
left it back then. It was deadly silent and did not contain the slightest
hint of life aura. All it had was the slight reverberating sound of the
magma bubble exploding, which caused this place to be even quieter. The
magma was extremely viscous, so it would usually not form any magma
waves. In any case, everything in this place gave one a silent feeling.
If one were to live in this place for a long time, it was likely that
one’s character would become strange and withdrawn. It was fortunate
that Xiao Yan had descended into a near-death state back then and had
been unaware of the situation in the outside world. Otherwise, those few
years would have been difficult to endure.
Xiao Yan felt somewhat relieved when he thought of this. After an
investigation in which he did not discover anything wrong, he finally
flapped his bone wings and came to a spot beside the mountain wall. He
drew his Heavy Xuan Ruler and his wrist moved rapidly. Rock fragments
flew and a ten-foot-large hole swiftly appeared in the tough mountain
Xiao Yan easily created a small cave where he could rest with the help of
the high temperature of the Glazed Lotus Flame. After doing all of this,
Xiao Yan did not immediately land on the magma and practice the ‘Six
Joint Body Flowing Ruler.’ Instead, he sat down cross-legged within the
mountain cave and gradually shut his eyes. After which, he entered his
Following Xiao Yan’s entrance into his training condition, the
surrounding space immediately began to intensely fluctuate. Bright-red
energy that could be seen with the naked eye surged in all directions.
Finally all of it fought to rush into Xiao Yan’s body…
The moment this bright-red energy poured into Xiao Yan’s body, his shut
eyes were suddenly opened. A wild joy and solemness flashed in them. The
degree of energy that filled this place had far exceeded his
expectations. However, the wild violence within the energy had also
exceeded his expectations. If one absorbed too much of such energy, it
was likely that it would affect one’s character. Moreover, such
influence was something that Xiao Yan could not accept even if he would
obtain a training speed that far exceeded his usual speed.
“It is fortunate that I was prepared…” Xiao Yan smiled after musing
for a moment. He flicked his hand and a cluster of jade green flames
rose. Finally, the cluster completely covered his hand.
Xiao Yan used his other hand to flick his finger when the flame appeared.
A couple of items appeared in front of him. Finally, under his control,
these items were left suspended in mid-air. These few items belonged to
the category of medicinal ingredients and their bodies emitted some
chillness. At one glance and one could tell that these medicinal
ingredients either contained ice type or water type energy.
Xiao Yan’s eyes gave a random glance before waving his hand. A couple
of cold affinity medicinal ingredients landed into it. The current him
was a genuine tier 6 alchemist. If he were to refine an ordinary
medicinal pill, he would be able to do it like Yao Lao where he used his
palm as a cauldron and refined the ingredients as he desired.
Under the control of Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Strength, the few kinds of
cold affinity medicinal ingredients were swiftly refined. A cold,
thick-white liquid slowly surfaced…
This time around, Xiao Yan was not refining a medicinal pill. Instead,
the items were just things to help with one’s training. It was just
like some of the things Yao Lao had refined to help him train when he had
first headed out back then. Hence, this did not consume too much time.
After merely ten minutes or so, the impurities within the pool of cold
liquid were completely expelled.
A crystal clear, cold liquid lingered within the flame. Xiao Yan flipped
his hand and a small jade bottle appeared. After which, he tilted the
bottle and some cold, bright-red liquid blood flowed out. Finally, it
fell into the flame and merged with the other cold liquid.
Following the merger of the two, the color of the liquid also changed.
After the grilling by the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame, a thick, pale-white
liquid was finally formed. Coldness radiated out of it, blocking the
surrounding hot temperature.
Seeing the successful refinement, the jade-green flame on Xiao Yan’s
hand also gradually scattered. He beckoned with his finger and the
faint-white, viscous liquid fell into a jade bottle. After completing
this refinement, Xiao Yan swiftly removed his clothes, and poured the
cold liquid over his body, covering every inch of it.
An ice-cold feeling immediately covered his body when the cold liquid was
scattered over it. His originally fiery, hot skin swiftly turned
ice-cold. Under that coldness, even Xiao Yan could not help but
involuntarily shiver. After which, he once again cross his legs and sat
on the ground. While the chillness was still dense, he entered his
When Xiao Yan entered his training mode, the surrounding fire affinity
energy immediately appeared to have been dragged as it surged toward Xiao
Yan in all directions. This time around, the bright-red substance-like
energy would collide against the cold liquid that covered his body before
it could make contact. The heat and coldness collided with each other,
and the medicinal strength that was contained within the coldness swiftly
resolved the wild violence within the hot energy. After which, a large
amount of purified energy poured into Xiao Yan’s body.
Xiao Yan’s mind looked at the hot energy that entered like a swarm. He
sensed the weakened violence within; it was difficult to detect. Only
then did he nod his head with satisfaction. After which, he controlled
this enormous fire affinity energy and slowly circulated it through the
‘Flame Mantra’ path. Finally, it was transformed into waves of
powerful, pure Dou Qi that merged into Xiao Yan’s body container that
had been expanded greatly yesterday…
The density of the fire affinity energy within the magma world gave Xiao
Yan a nice surprise. Moreover, the wild violence within the energy was
resolved by the cold liquid and he could absorb the energy without any
fear. According to this speed, Xiao Yan had the confidence that he would
once again breakthrough to become a six star Dou Huang within three
Xiao Yan’s first training within the magma world did not last for long.
Around an hour or so later, Xiao Yan’s tightly shut eyes were slowly
opened. Some fiery heat flashed through his dark-black eyes. A mouthful
of hot air followed his throat before slowly being scattered.
Xiao Yan tightened his fist slightly and sensed the filled feeling within
his body. The corner of his mouth was involuntarily lifted into a faint
smile. This place was indeed extremely suitable for him. He had merely
trained for less than an hour but he could vaguely sense the Dou Qi
within his cells advancing. If this were to continue for a prolonged
period of time, his advancement would definitely be quite frightening.
However, the only flaw was that the atmosphere in this place was really
too quiet. If he wanted to train for a long period of time, he had to be
prepared for loneliness…
Training was originally an extremely bitter matter. If one wanted to
obtain a strength that an ordinary person had difficulty matching, one
must put in an effort that others had difficulty reaching. There would
never be strength that came for no reason in this world. This point was
something that Xiao Yan, who experienced many things, had long learned.
Hence, even though he knew that training in this place was extremely
tough, he still choose to do it without hesitation…
Xiao Yan finally began to practice the ‘Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler’
after familiarizing with the magma world for an entire day. The
environment in this place was really perfect when it was used for
The initial training was naturally the hardest. Since the ‘Six Joint
Body Flowing Ruler’ was of a high class,it was difficult to practice.
However, it was fortunate that Xiao Yan’s training talent was unique.
Additionally, he had the spiritual imprint within the scroll to teach
him, allowing him to save quite a number of detours in his training.
Hence, after bitterly training for a couple of days in the magma world
and undergoing many dangers of the magma touching his body, he had
gradually gained a simple understanding. He was already able to reach
this stage when he displayed it. Although there was still a large
distance to successfully mastering it, being able to reach such a level
within a short few days was already extremely good. As long as Xiao Yan
was given sufficient time, an initial mastery of the ‘Six Joint Body
Flowing Ruler’ was not an impossible matter…
The deathly quiet magma world was void of any concept of time. However,
Xiao Yan also knew that it had been around ten days since he had entered
this place. He had gained quite a lot during these ten days. Not only had
his strength been firmly stabilized at the five star Dou Huang level, but
he was even more familiar with the ‘Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler.’
Moreover, following this period of adaptation, Xiao Yan also became more
and more comfortable with this magma world…
After this adaptation, the mysterious summoning feeling that Xiao Yan had
faintly sensed when he had arrived once again appeared. This time around,
his senses were even clearer. After a careful investigation, he was
surprised to realize that the summoning target… seemed to be the Fallen
Heart Flame in his body?
