Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-899
The hesitation in Xiao Yan’s eyes slowly disappeared after Xiao Yan
made a decision in his heart. He lowered his head and looked at the
endless magma. A solemness flashed onto his face. He was uncertain about
just how deep this underground magma was. One must possess an unusually
powerful strength if one wanted to enter deep within it. This was because
there was a great pressure from the already hot magma, something that an
ordinary expert would not be able to endure.
According to his prediction, one must require at least the strength of a
Dou Zong class if one wanted to enter the bottom of this magma. An
ordinary Dou Huang or someone without powerful Dou Qi would likely have
their fortune hang in the balance if they were to head down. Of course,
Xiao Yan was an exception. This was the place where the Fallen Heart
Flame was born. With him being the current owner of the Fallen Heart
Flame, it would be much easier for him to move about.
Xiao Yan waved his hand as he stood on the magma while deep in thought.
The Heavy Xuan Ruler once again appeared in his hand. After which, he
swung his sleeve and the heavy ruler transformed into a black-colored
figure that shot out. Finally, it smashed violently into the wall. The
powerful strength caused the heavy ruler to penetrate a couple of feet
into the mountain wall.
Xiao Yan had added a thread of Spiritual Strength to the heavy ruler.
This would be his signpost. His sight under the magma would be extremely
blurry. No one knew if it was deep or shallow. The magma was also
extremely dense. Moreover, its size was incomparably vast. If one were to
randomly explore it, who knew exactly how one would return to the surface
of the magma? Under chaos, one might travel increasingly further from the
signpost. Even if anything went wrong, Xiao Yan would be able to quickly
and accurately find a route and save his life.
After doing all of this, Xiao Yan finally relaxed. He inhaled a breath of
air as a jade-green flame slowly surged out. Finally, it wrapped all
around his body. From a distance, it was as though he was a cluster of
burning jade-green flames.
Xiao Yan ceased feeling any hesitation after the flame completely
surrounded his body. He entered the viscous magma. Waves of bubbles rose
and swiftly exploded. After which, the seemingly endless magma world once
again descended into a deathly silence. Only the black ruler on the
mountain wall remained. Emitting a faint vague glow, it appeared much
like a street lamp…
The hot temperature and the pressure immediately surged from all
directions after Xiao Yan entered the magma world. It was as though it
wanted to squeeze Xiao Yan into meat paste. However, after powerful Dou
Qi poured out of his body, the resistance from the outside world became
Xiao Yan’s body paused for a moment before he carefully looked once
around him. When he did not discover anything, he finally let out a soft
sigh in his heart. He flicked his finger and a wisp of invisible flame
slowly curled and rose from his fingertip.
The appearance of this wisp of flame suddenly caused the place to become
hot and bright. After which, the flame shifted slightly before aiming at
a deep region of magma. Finally, it actually began to swiftly fall
This sudden, unexpected change caused Xiao Yan to be slightly startled.
His eyes changed before he clenched his fist, moved his body, and swiftly
followed it. It seemed that the deep parts of the magma did have
something that was summoning the Fallen Heart Flame. What caused Xiao Yan
to feel doubtful, however, was the reason for him not having such a
feeling when he captured the flame back then.
Xiao Yan’s body turned into a jade-green fire figure that carried some
doubt in its heart. He became like a fish entering the sea as he
penetrated the viscous magma. An invisible flame was visible a couple of
meters in front of him, acting like a guide…
Xiao Yan knew very little about this magma sea. The only thing that he
knew was that this place seemed to be the place where the Fallen Heart
Flame was born. He was completely unaware about whether this magma sea
possessed anything. Of course, it was likely that even First Elder Su
Qian did not have much of an understanding regarding this magma field
hidden under the Inner Academy. In the past, this place was the residence
of the Fallen Heart Flame. The Inner Academy’s experts were thinking of
all ways to seal the hole in order to avoid it breaking the seal and
escaping. Hence, it was natural that no one would take the initiative to
enter it. After Xiao Yan had subdued the Fallen Heart Flame, First Elder
Su Qian had come down here once. However, after seeing this endless
magma, he turned around and left with some fear.
After all, he was not Xiao Yan. Although he possessed the strength of
someone at the Dou Zong class, he still appeared exceptionally small when
faced with this kind of underground magma world that had been formed by
nature after a countless number of years. Hence, he could only stay his
exploration mindset as he swiftly left… therefore, no one was able to
give Xiao Yan any information regarding this magma world. He would have
to rely on himself.
The vast magma was bright-red. The swiftly descending jade-green fire
figure within this bright-red magma world appeared to be exceptionally
Xiao Yan’s face within the jade-green flame was tensed. His eyes were
filled with a solemness. It had been nearly twenty minutes since he had
begun his descent. However, the ball of Fallen Heart Flame in front of
him still continued to descend. It did not show the slightest hint of
stopping. This caused Xiao Yan to be afraid of feeling relaxed in his
Due to him descending deeper and deeper, the surrounding pressure had
also become more and more frightening. If not for the help of the Glazed
Lotus Heart Flame, it was definitely impossible for Xiao Yan to endure to
this point with just his five star Dou Huang strength. Even though this
was the case, the situation was still pessimistic. Maneuvering the Glazed
Lotus Heart Flame also required quite a great amount of Dou Qi. The fire
affinity energy within the magma might be extremely dense, but it was
difficult for it to replenish this kind of exhaustion on a large scale.
Although this might greatly slow down the Dou Qi exhaustion, it was only
a matter of time before it was completely exhausted. Moreover, Xiao Yan
still had to save sufficient Dou Qi to return to the surface…
Xiao Yan glanced at the swiftly flying Fallen Heart Flame while numerous
thoughts flashed through his heart. He involuntarily inhaled a gentle
breath of air. This time around, he seemed to have been a little rash. If
he was not careful in this kind of dangerous place, it was likely that he
would meet the miserable fate of death.
Xiao Yan raised his head. All that entered his eyes was a crimson-red
color. This kind of feeling, where everything around him was the same,
would have likely caused Xiao Yan to lose his sense of direction a long
time ago if he had not place a Spiritual Imprint on the Heavy Xuan Ruler
before he entered the magma. If one lost one’s direction in this kind
of magma world, he would undoubtedly end up dying…
A soft sigh was emitted as a faint thread of horror surged from deep
within his heart. Something unknown was the most frightening. Faced with
this endless magma world, even Xiao Yan, who possessed the Fallen Heart
Flame, felt a kind of helplessness.
The soft sound slowly sounded. Just when Xiao Yan had determined a final
time limit in his heart, the swiftly flying Fallen Heart Flame gradually
Xiao Yan braced his attention when he saw this scene. His heart became
increasingly cautious as his eyes carefully weighed his surroundings.
This place remained a bright-red world. It did not appear to be the end
of the magma sea. This was because there was still dark-red magma under
Xiao Yan’s feet. If one were to look carefully, one would faintly see a
dark blackness within it that caused one to be afraid. It would never
allow anyone to know just what thing existed at the end of it.
Xiao Yan’s swept his gaze around and some doubt was involuntarily
revealed within his eyes. Not the slightest bit of unusualness was
present in this place. Could it be the unknown summoning was emitted from
While Xiao Yan was in doubt, the cluster of Fallen Heart Flame in front
of Xiao Yan floated slowly. After which, a faint fiery glow scattered
down from it. This fire glow was like a lamp post that shone on the magma
not far away. Immediately, a strange scene appeared. One could only see
that the magma was actually wiggling. After which, a transparent light
circle that emitted a faint glow surfaced from the magma swirl.
This sudden change had caused the Dou Qi within Xiao Yan’s body to be
maneuvered on top of causing him to be surprised. He had already decided
that he would immediately turn around and flee if any sudden change
occurred. A person who was able to create such a mysterious scene within
the magma was definitely not someone whom he could contend with. Fleeing
was the most rational choice.
Xiao Yan’s anxious gaze studied the scene below as though he were
facing a great enemy. The faint transparent light circle had completely
appeared within the magma. Xiao Yan’s gaze had also swept over it at
the first opportunity.
Due to the light circle being transparent, it did not hinder Xiao Yan’s
gaze. However, when his gaze swept over, it immediately caused Xiao Yan
to be stunned. His eyes was filled with shock and disbelief.
This was because there was nothing within the light circle other than a
body that had long been turned into a skeleton. The size of the skeleton
was massive. Due to it always being surrounded by magma, the bones were
completely white and emitted a faint glow. The thing that caused Xiao Yan
to be shocked was not the bones but a flame that was drifting on top of
them. The flame was transparent, appearing much like an invisible item.
One to two fire seedlings would occasionally leap out. The surrounding
magma seemed to be extremely afraid of it. Once the fire seedling
expanded and shrank, a circular whiteness formed around the bones. Other
people might feel that this thing was somewhat foreign, but Xiao Yan was
unusually familiar with it. That was because this flame was the Fallen
Moreover, Xiao Yan could tell from a glance that the transparent flame
within the light circle was not some Heart Flame. Instead, it was a
genuine Fallen Heart Flame. In other words, the thing that had appeared
in front of Xiao Yan was actually another Fallen Heart Flame?
At this moment, Xiao Yan’s mind involuntarily felt giddy. How could the
same place possess two of the same ‘Heavenly Flame?’ Moreover, who
did that mysterious skeleton belonged to?
Various mysteries surged in Xiao Yan’s head, causing it to become a
cluster of paste. Just when he was at a loss, all of the goosebumps on
his body suddenly stood on end because… a hot wind was shooting toward
him in a strange manner!
There was actually another person present in this magma world that was
void of any life?
At this instant, even the skin on Xiao Yan’s head involuntarily became
