Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-903
The white-haired old man who called himself Yao Tian Huo smiled slightly
when he saw Xiao Yan’s change in expression. He immediately waved his
hand and indifferently said, “There is no need to be afraid. That was
when I was still alive. The current me is merely a little spirit. Given
your strength, it is enough to kill me.”
Xiao Yan quietly sighed in relief without noticing it upon hearing this.
He was quite cautious of this elite Dou Zun with a mysterious origin,
especially if he was the previous owner of the Fallen Heart Flame.
Tian Huo zun-zhe played with the Fallen Heart Flame in his hand. A moment
later, he sighed and recalled his memories. He flicked his finger and the
Fallen Heart Flame transformed into a fire snake that shot to Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan carefully received the Fallen Heart Flame, but did not
immediately absorb it into his body. He allowed it to linger on his hand.
Only after he failed to discover anything wrong with it did he carefully
absorb it into his body. When he regained the Fallen Heart Flame, the
caution within Xiao Yan finally paled a little. He immediately smiled and
courteously said, “This little fellow is reckless. I was not aware that
old sir is present in this place. Please bear with me if I have offended
Tian Huo zun-zhe waved his hand and glanced at Xiao Yan. He immediately
pointed at the baby invisible flame and asked faintly, “Are you also
interested in this Fallen Heart Flame?”
Xiao Yan’s heart became cold upon hearing Tian Huo zun-zhe question. He
immediately laughed dryly and said, “That is something that belonged to
old sir when you were alive. The little me has luckily inherited a kind
of Fallen Heart Flame. I am already satisfied..”
“Little fellow, don’t use such tactics in front of me. When I was
bluffing people on the Dou Qi continent, your grandfather might not even
have been born.” Tian Huo zun-zhe smiled as he chastised.
Xiao Yan involuntarily felt a little embarrassed when he heard this. This
old fellow had already long seen through his thoughts.
Tian Huo zun-zhe’s gaze was somewhat nostalgic as he looked at the
Fallen Heart Flame. He slowly said, “The first Fallen Heart Flame I
discovered when I came to search this place back then. I spent a couple
of years before luckily subduing it. It is the flame within your body
Xiao Yan lifted his ears when he suddenly heard Tian Huo zun-zhe speaking
about the past. He also paid quite a lot of attention to the matter of
the Fallen Heart Flame.
“Back then, I relied on the little skill that I had, and was able to
roam anywhere in the world. Hence, I did not leave after subduing the
Fallen Heart Flame. Instead, I curiously investigated this deep magma
world…” Tian Huo zun-zhe long drawn out breath contained a sigh,
feeling somewhat regretful because of his recklessness back then.
“After entering deep into the magma world, I had discovered a
‘Heavenly Flame’ seed within it. This discovery caused me to rejoice
quite greatly. Hence, I greedily wanted to also subdue the Fallen Heart
Flame ‘Heavenly Flame’ seed. In the end, the two flames mixed within
my body. Not only were they unable to merge perfectly, but instead
ostracized each other like enemies. The battle of the ‘Heavenly
Flames’ caused my body to be seriously injured. At this moment, I was
suddenly attacked…” Tian Huo zun-zhe sighed.
“Those fire lizard people?” A thought passed through Xiao Yan’s
heart as he probingly inquired.
“It seems that you have also made contact with them…” Tian Huo
zun-zhe was also somewhat surprised when he heard Xiao Yan’s words.
“They were the ones who had surrounded and attacked me earlier. I only
barged in after having no other choice.” Xiao Yan rubbed his head and
“Those fire lizard people seem to be the aboriginals living in this
place. There are many of them. Moreover, there was no lack of ultimate
experts who could contend against a Dou Zun. That time, I met a Dou Zun
class lizard race expert. If I had been in my peak condition, I would
have not been afraid of it. Unfortunately, the fighting of the two
‘Heavenly Flames’ had already caused my body to be seriously injured.
You can also guess the ending after that. I suffered a fatal injury after
that big battle. However, it was fortunate that these lizard race experts
did not know about spatial strength. Hence, they had difficulty finding
the place where I am hidden.” Tian Huo zun-zhe’s eyes had a somewhat
astonishing appearance. It seemed that the big battle back then had been
ingrained deep in his memory.
“Although I had successfully hid my body, I had also suffered a serious
injury. My body gradually crumble not long later. With my last breath, I
released the mature Fallen Heart Flame I had subdued. My soul was
attached to the Heavenly Flame seed, intending to use it to survive.
However, after so many years, my soul was unable to endure. If no other
people entered this place within two years, my soul might have completely
Xiao Yan’s heart moved slightly upon hearing this. From these words,
this Tian Huo zun-zhe in front of him could not be said to be completely
dead. Once one’s strength reaches the level of a Dou Zun, one still had
the opportunity to revive unless even one’s spirit was scattered. One
example was Yao Lao. As long as a body that could accommodate his soul
was refined, he would be able to revive once again and return to his
peak. However, Yao Lao’s soul was perfectly preserved. The soul of this
Tian Huo zun-zhe in front of him, however, was quite thin. It was really
difficult to say if he could recover…
“After so many years, it is unexpected that the ‘Heavenly Flame’
seed back then had gradually evolved into a Heart Flame form. However, it
is still at its infant stage.” Tian Huo zun-zhe beckoned with his hand
and the infant Fallen Heart Flame was held within it. He smiled as he
glanced at Xiao Yan. He faintly asked, “Do you wish to obtain it?”

Xiao Yan nodded his head honestly this time around. He immediately
respectfully said, “Old mister, tell this little fellow of your
conditions if you are willing to give this infant Fallen Heart Flame. As
long as this little fellow is able to do it, I will not decline.”
Although the other party had said that his current condition was one that
Xiao Yan could easily kill, he didn’t fully trust these words. After
all, no matter how one put it, the other party was a genuine Dou Zun.
Xiao Yan would not believe that he did not have some hidden tactics.
Hence, it was better if Xiao Yan acted more courteous before he became
The expression of Tian Huo zun-zhe did not change after hearing Xiao
Yan’s words. He mused for a moment before slowly speaking, “It is not
impossible for you to have it. However, you must help the old me. Of
course, you can rest assured that I will give you a sufficient reward.”
“Old mister, please speak.” Xiao Yan’s heart moved as he spoke with
“I can see that the fire strength within your body is extremely strong.
Moreover, the flame contained an extremely faint wooden aura. I think
that you should be an alchemist, right? Moreover, it is likely that your
alchemist tier is quite high in order to subdue the Fallen Heart Flame,
no?” Tian Huo zun-zhe smiled as he spoke.
“He is indeed worthy of being an elite Dou Zun. All that he has left is
a wisp of soul, but his eyesight is still so sharp.” Xiao Yan quietly
praised while he nodded slightly.
“Since you are an alchemist, you should also know how to repair one’s
injured spirit, no?” Tian Huo zun-zhe softly laughed.
Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed while he muttered an ‘as expected’ quietly
within his heart. These Dou Zun class old demons were some monsters that
were difficult to kill. As long as a little of their soul remained, they
were able to be this tenacious. This thought flashed across Xiao Yan’s
heart but his face descended into deep thought. Helping a Dou Zun class
expert repair his soul was not an easy matter. Moreover, he had just met
Tian Huo zun-zhe, and was completely unaware of the other party’s
character. If he were to randomly help and allow the latter to recover,
the other party might instead come and snatch the ‘Heavenly Flame’ in
his body. What would he do then?
“Ha ha, little fellow, you can rest assured that as long as you are
able to repair the soul of the old me, the old me swear that I will not
harm you in the future.” Tian Huo zun-zhe involuntarily smiled when he
saw Xiao Yan deep in thought. He slowly spoke before beckoning with his
hand. A snow-white storage ring from the skeleton beside him flew up and
fell into his hand. With a flick of his finger, a pale-white-colored
scroll appeared in front of him. Flying beasts, that were emitting flame
from their bodies, were drawn on it.
“This is the Dou Technique that the old me was famous for back then,
the ‘Five Ring Flame Expelling Technique.’ Ha ha, it is not quite
right to describe it as a Dou Technique. It should be described as a
flame controlling method.” Tian Huo zun-zhe tossed the scroll to Xiao
Yan and said. “As long as you help the old me, this thing will be
yours. If you doubt the sincerity of the old me, you can take the scroll
first. It is not too late for you to help me repair my soul after you
discover that there is nothing wrong with it.
Xiao Yan carefully received the scroll. He hesitated for a moment before
cautiously pulling it open slowly.
“Five Ring Flame Expelling Technique, aflame control skill. This
technique is divided into five categories based on the shape of the
beast: Wolf, Leopard, Lion, Tiger, Snake. Each kind of beast has its own
fire spirit. Upon complete mastery of this fire technique, the five
beasts can gather and form a Five Ring Flame Expelling Flame Formation.
It has the enormous strength to boil the sea and burn the sky.”
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept over this somewhat simple introduction slowly.
His gaze immediately paused on the last row of small words.
“If four of the five beasts are agglomerated from a ‘Heavenly
Flame,’ the strength of this technique is comparable to a Tian class
“Tian class Dou Technique?”
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared firmly at these four words. He inhaled a cold
breath of air within his heart. He had never even heard the slightest
information about a Tian class Dou Technique during these many years. The
highest class Dou Technique that he had come into contact with was likely
the ‘God Seal Skill’ that Xun Er had given him. Even though that was
the case, one must reach complete mastery in order to step into the Tian
class Dou Technique entrance. Could this so-called ‘Five Ring Flame
Expelling Technique’ also possess this kind of frightening strength?
Xiao Yan gradually recovered his calm after his mind was shaken for
awhile. He curled his lips slightly. A flame controlling technique. He
had indeed not practiced one before. Normally, his control of the
‘Heavenly Flame’ to attack was quite simple. This ‘Five Ring Flame
Expelling Technique’ was indeed suitable for him. Would the part where
four of the five beast being agglomerated from ‘Heavenly Flame’ mean
that one required four kinds of ‘Heavenly Flames?’
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly when he thought until this moment. Currently,
the interior of his body only had three kinds. He did not know just when
it would be before he could reach that stage…
However, even if this point was eliminated, this so-called ‘Five Ring
Flame Expelling Technique’ was really attractive to Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan gently tapped the scroll on his hand. He was silent for quite
awhile. Tian Huo zun-zhe did not press him. All the latter did was calmly
watch Xiao Yan.
The silent atmosphere continued for a couple of minutes before Xiao
Yan’s let out a long breath. His bright eyes glanced to Tian Huo
zun-zhe as he slowly said.
“I can help old mister repair his soul. However, I hope that old mister
is agreeable to add another condition.”
