Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-928
A murky blood fog surged in all directions from the white-colored ring.
It swiftly agglomerated into a blood-colored figure within the cave.
This figure had just appeared when an unusually dense stench spread out.
However, the two people within the cave were not ordinary people. This
kind of negative emotion did not successfully corrode their mind.
The fierce spirit had just appeared when it saw Xiao Yan and Tian Huo
zun-zhe. Perhaps because it had been captured the last time it saw these
people, but it actually did not pounce on them. Instead, it turned
around, transformed into a blood shadow that wildly shot out of the cave.
It appeared to be afraid of them and was actually attempting to flee.
“Hmph, you wish to escape?”
Tian Huo zun-zhe let out a cold snort upon seeing the actions of the
fierce spirit. His hand was clenched and the Fallen Heart Flame in front
of him swiftly spread out. It transformed into a fire web as it rushed
out. Finally, it managed to seal the cave exit just before the blood
figure reached it.
Fear flashed across the blood-colored eyes of the fierce spirit when it
saw the invisible fire web. Although it lacked intelligence, its
instincts told it that this invisible fire web in front of it would cause
it great harm.
The rushing blood figure forcefully halted its charging body amid an
ear-piercing screech. After which, it stilled its body at a spot only
five feet from the fire web.
The body came to a stop, but before the blood figure could rejoice, Tian
Huo zun-zhe waved his sleeves. One could watch as the fire web fell
before turning into a something like a hungry wolf, charging forward. The
web wrapped around the fierce spirit, which could not withdraw in time.
The fire web had just made contact with the fierce spirit’s body when
it immediately emitted waves of white fog. A ‘chi chi’ sound
repeatedly appeared. It was also accompanied by the all out struggle of
the fierce spirit. Although it did not possess any intelligence, the
Fallen Heart Flame could affect its spirit. It was difficult to avoid
this kind of searing pain that originated in one’s spirit.
Waves of viscous blood-colored fog surged from the fierce spirit’s body
as it struggled. After which, the fog collided with the surrounding
invisible fire web. They began to fiercely and ruthlessly erode each
A cold expression flashed across Tian Huo zun-zhe’s eyes when he saw
the retaliation of the fierce spirit. His hand suddenly changed and the
fire web began to slowly shrink. While this fire web was shrinking, the
fierce spirit’s body within it also became smaller.
“Xiao Yan, increase the strength of the Fallen Heart Flame!”
Tian Huo zun-zhe suddenly cried out as he stared at the shrinking fire
Xiao Yan, who had already been waiting for orders by the side,
immediately nodded his head upon hearing this. He flicked his finger and
a wave of Dou Qi shot out. Finally, it landed on the fire web. The Dou Qi
was swiftly swallowed by the fire web. Following the fire web’s
consumption of Dou Qi, the invisible flame lingering on its surface
became denser. On the other hand, the fierce spirit within repeatedly
emitted a furious screech because of the grilling. No matter how
intensely it struggled, it was too difficult to escape from the fire
“Continue to strengthen it!” Tian Huo zun-zhe glanced at the spirit
that was still struggling and commanded in a deep voice.
Xiao Yan’s expression was calm. His ten fingers flicked repeatedly and
numerous Dou Qi pillars erupted. Finally, they completely merged with the
fire web. With the addition of more Dou Qi, the temperature of the Fallen
Heart Flame became frightening. In the end, the fierce spirit finally
erupted amid a sharp miserable cry, and transformed into a viscous
blood-colored fog that drifted within the fire web.
Tian Huo zun-zhe sighed in relief upon seeing this scene. The seal on his
hand changed and the fire web gradually scattered. It soon agglomerated
into a ten-foot-large cauldron made of flames. The cluster of viscous
blood-colored fog was stuck within the cauldron.
Surprise also flashed across Xiao Yan’s eyes as he studied Tian Huo
zun-zhe’s ingenious method of agglomerating a flame cauldron. He was
indeed worthy of previously being an elite Dou Zun. Xiao Yan admitted
that his flame controlling method was far inferior to his. Tian Huo
zun-zhe was really deserving of his name.
TL: Tian Huo – means sky fire
The temperature within the fire cauldron was extremely frightening. By
being refined under that high temperature, the cluster of viscous blood
fog slowly became pale. Xiao Yan knew that as long as the blood color
within it was completely refined away, the fierce spirit would have been
successfully refined into a cluster of extremely pure Spiritual
However, the process of such a refinement was somewhat slow. It was
likely that one would have difficulty completely refining the fierce
spirit at this speed without at least three to four days…
“Alright, next, I will need you to help me maintain this fire cauldron.
The current me is unable to maintain the exhaustion of this fire
cauldron.” Tian Huo zun-zhe’s face revealed a smile as he looked at
the blood-colored fog, slowly being refined within the fire cauldron.
After which, he smiled as he spoke to Xiao Yan.
“Aye, old mister Yao, you can just relax.” Xiao Yan smiled and
nodded. The flame was controlled by Tian Huo zun-zhe. All he needed to do
was to provide enough Dou Qi to maneuver the Fallen Heart Flame. This did
not drain too much of his mental strength.
Tian Huo zun-zhe also smiled and nodded when he heard this. After which,
he slowly shut his eyes and sat cross-legged in the air. A thread of
Spiritual Strength came out and controlled the flame within the fire
cauldron to proceed with the refinement.
Xiao Yan once again poured in a wave of Dou Qi into the fire cauldron
upon seeing Tian Huo zun-zhe shut his eyes. After which, he clenched his
hand and an ordinary grayish-brown bamboo scroll appeared in his hand.
“Sky Demon Puppet.”
This scroll was naturally a treasure that Xiao Yan had obtained from
raiding the Demon Flame Valley storehouse. The puppet skill that was
recorded on it caused him to be very curious.
Xiao Yan’s finger slowly flipped open the scroll. Those words written
on it began to enter Xiao Yan’s head one at a time before leaving
behind a deep memory that was difficult to remove.
The cave slowly descended into silence. Tian Huo zun-zhe was focusing his
attention on the flame that was refining the fierce spirit while Xiao Yan
had thrown his attention to the mysterious world that was recorded within
the bamboo scroll.
This quiet atmosphere continued for around an hour or so before Xiao Yan
recovered from Tian Huo zun-zhe’s urging voice. He immediately gave an
embarrassed smile and hurriedly summoned a wave of Dou Qi to throw into
the fire cauldron.
After this one hour of study, Xiao Yan also gained some understanding of
this ‘Sky Demon Puppet.’ If one wanted to refine this thing, one
would have to possess the three key ingredients written in the
introduction: a corpse, a Monster Core, and a spirit. Of course, other
than these, one would require some special metallic materials in order to
make the puppet’s body even tougher.
Xiao Yan tapped the bamboo scroll softly on his arm. He gradually
descended deep into thought. He was basically in possession of all of
these things. For a corpse, he had Yun Shan’s and the Old Ground Demon
Ghost’s body. For a Monster Core, the rank 7 fire affinity Monster Core
should be able to do the trick. For a spirit, the Protector Tie from the
‘Hall of Souls’ he had obtained from the Chu Yun Empire back then was
the best replacement. Xiao Yan also possessed some special metallic
materials in his Storage Ring. Because he was an alchemist, it was his
habit to collect various things.
A cold glint suddenly flashed across Xiao Yan’s eyes as he thought of
about spirits. He shook his hand and a jade bottle with a faint invisible
flame covering its mouth appeared in his hand. There was a thread of
spiritual ripple faintly seeping out from it.
Xiao Yan’s finger rubbed the bottle’s mouth and eliminated the layer
of flame. He kept his eyes shut and a Spiritual Strength carried a voice
that was transmitted into the jade bottle.
“Han Feng, do you know the place where the ‘Hall of Souls’ has
“Ha ha, Xiao Yan, do you wish to rescue that old fellow who will not
die? Stop dreaming. This little ability of yours is like an ant if you
were to meet the true experts from the ‘Hall of Souls.’ Hee hee, if
you really wish to know, you can let me out and beg me properly. Perhaps,
I might suddenly be merciful and reveal a little information to you!”
An arrogant laugh sounded from the jade bottle.
Xiao Yan’s face remained indifferent. He did not waste his breath. With
a flick of his finger, a wisp of jade-green flame entered the jade
bottle. Soon a miserable ear-piercing scream was transmitted from the
“Stop burning. What do you want to know? We can discuss the matter
Xiao Yan ignored the terrified cry within the jade bottle. With a wipe of
his finger, a thin flame once again sealed the bottle’s mouth. He then
assessed the jade bottle before putting it back into his Storage Ring.
When dealing with such a person, it would be easier to talk if he was
allowed to suffer a little.
Xiao Yan glanced at the fire cauldron after doing all this. The viscous
blood fog within it had paled quite significantly. Clearly, the
refinement was progressing quite well.
Xiao Yan’s gaze shifted away from the fire cauldron. He played with the
bamboo scroll on his hand, hesitated for a moment, and stored it within
his Storage Ring, Currently, he still needed to take care of the fire
cauldron. Hence, it was not the best time to refine other things. It
would not be too late to wait until after he had completely refined the
fierce spirit before starting.
Xiao Yan ceased hesitating after having made his decision within his
heart. He exhaled a gentle breath, sat cross-legged, and began to absorb
energy to replenish the exhaustion within his body.
Three days of quiet refinement passed by in a flash…
On this day, the two people in the cave who had their eyes shut opened
them together without any prior agreement. Their gazes were thrown to the
fire cauldron floating in the air. Both of them sensed that the viscous
blood-colored fog had completely scattered. Replacing it was a cluster of
chaotic vapor. Xiao Yan sensed an extremely dense Spiritual Strength in
“It has finally been successfully refined…”
An excited expression flashed across Tian Huo zun-zhe’s eyes as he
stared at the invisible gas. He moved his hand and the fire cauldron
collapsed. It immediately transformed into a cluster of invisible flame,
that rushed to Xiao Yan before entering his body.
That cluster of chaotic gas was swallowed by Tian Huo zun-zhe after it
approached him. His figure then shook and transformed into a white glow
that entered the white-colored ring.
“Ha ha, Xiao Yan, words cannot thank such a great favor. The old me
will come and return this favor after completely absorbing this Spiritual
Strength. Additionally, the time I need for this absorption might be
somewhat long. You should be more careful.”
Xiao Yan also smiled when he heard Tian Huo zun-zhe’s laughter. He
nodded slightly and lifted his head to look at the empty cave. He laughed
softly, “In that case, I shall refine the ‘Sky Demon Puppet’…”
