Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-946
A wild wind carried grains of sands as it swept through a reddish-yellow
desert.The whining sound of howling wind faintly emitted threads of a
dark coldness. In this kind of somewhat desolate place, one would be hard
pressed to find another human. There was only an endless sandy wind,
carrying the sounds of a howl. No tree existed in this area. The dry
environment made it difficult for both vegetation and animals to survive.
Only pale-yellow wild grass was able to tenaciously live in this desolate
place. Under their tiny leaves was an extremely well developed root
system that an ordinary person would have difficulty imagining. Their
dozens-of-meters-long roots extended deep underground in search of a
precious water source. The herdsmen in the desert called them Halii Ya,
meaning divine gift. This tenacious vegetation was finding a way to
maintain its life.
A wild wind blew past a patch of pale-yellow wild grass in the desert.
The wild grasses were bending their bodies. A dark-black human figure was
revealed among them.
The clothes on the human figure were tattered and fresh blood covered his
body. He was breathing through his nose was extremely weakly. If his
chest had not be rising and falling, it was likely that people would have
mistaken this for a corpse that had been tossed in the desert.
This corpse, covered in fresh blood, suddenly trembled after being quiet
for a long while. His tightly shut eyes slowly opened. The corner of his
mouth was involuntarily pulled to form a bitter smile when he heard the
howling wind in his ears. Just where the hell did that damn Wormhole send
The human figure that appeared like a corpse was Xiao Yan, who had fled
the Wormhole. He had not immediately appeared on the ground when he had
fled into the light circle back then. Instead, he had been violently
mistreated by the Spatial Strength within the silver storm, that had
become unusually wild and violent, before being spat out like garbage…
Due to his body having been ruthlessly ravaged by the Spatial Strength,
the current Xiao Yan was suffering from a serious internal injury. He did
not even possess the strength to stand up. It had already been nearly a
day since he had been spat out. He had been lying like a corpse for the
entire day, slowly absorbing the natural energy and carefully refilling
his greatly damaged body.
Xiao Yan’s finger touched his Storage Ring with much difficulty and a
medicinal pill appeared. It was slowly placed into his mouth in a
quivering manner. After doing this simple action, the interior of Xiao
Yan’s body suddenly emitted waves of pain, causing some cold
perspiration to surface on his forehead. If not for the ‘Heavenly
Flame’ protecting his body, it was likely that his body would have been
torn to pieces when faced with that wild and violent Spatial Strength…
however, despite this, he was still unlucky enough to enter this
seriously injured condition.
“As long as I recover a little Dou Qi, I will be able to heal my
injuries. After which, I will refine some medicinal pills and should be
able to gradually allow my injuries to be completely healed… hopefully,
I will not be unlucky enough to meet a roaming Magical Beast. Even an
elite Dou Zong can’t do anything to me. Thus, it would be really
difficult to accept it if I ended up becoming the food of some Magical
Xiao Yan slowly muttered in his heart. He sensed the warm medicinal
strength that was spreading around his body. A tiredness once again
surged into his head, causing him to gradually shut his eyes. When he was
shutting his eyes, he seemed to vaguely hear a noise, an exclamation…
The next time Xiao Yan woke up was because of an intense bump. That bump
caused the bones in his body to appear as though they were falling into
pieces. The painful feeling expelled the tiredness in his head. After
which, he struggled to slowly open his eyes.
A huge ceiling entered his eyes. Xiao Yan’s finger gently rubbed the
spot under his body as his gaze swept around him. Immediately, he
understood where he was. He was in a carriage. In other words, he had
been discovered by a passerby on the grass.
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept over his body and discovered that the traces of
blood had been wiped off. Even the tattered black robe had been changed
by someone. The current him was wearing extremely coarse linen clothes.
Xiao Yan looked at the clothes on his body and was stunned for a moment.
After which, he suddenly recalled something and hurriedly rubbed his
right hand. He only heaved a sigh of relief upon discovering that the
Storage Ring was still there.
The curtain of the carriage was pulled apart while Xiao Yan sighed in
relief. A eye-piercing light scattered in. Immediately, a middle-aged man
with a somewhat strong build appeared in Xiao Yan’s sight. He parted
his mouth and smiled when he saw that Xiao Yan had awoken. With a
somewhat honest and straightforward tone, he asked, “Little brother,
have you woken?”
Xiao Yan’s eyes swept over the middle-aged man. Although he was
seriously injured and the Dou Qi within his body was empty, his Spiritual
Strength was still as powerful as before. He immediately saw through this
person’s strength. The peak of the Dou Ling class. The step to the Dou
Wang class was only a short distance.
“Ha ha, our convoy discovered you in a deserted grass patch.
Originally, we thought that you wouldn’t survive after seeing your
injuries. Unexpectedly, you were able to wake up…” The middle-aged
man smiled to Xiao Yan and said, “I am called Han Chong, a deacon of
the Han clan of the Tian Bei City. This time around, I coincidentally had
a mission that made the convoy pass through this deserted desert.
That’s when we ended up discovering you. It must be said that you are
really lucky. There are frequent wolf related disasters within the
desert. These beasts are all fierce fellows. Even a normal Dou Shi
isn’t their match, and many experts have been eaten by them. If they
had discovered you, it is likely that you would have been left as a pile
of white bones.”
“Big brother Han Chong, thank you for rescuing me.” Xiao Yan spoke
with great gratitude when he heard Han Chong’s explanation. Although he
was able to gradually recover a little Dou Qi, if he were to continue
lying on the ground, he would not be able to summon his Demon Puppet to
protect himself, and no one could be certain whether something would
happen during these one to two days. Hence, he really owed this Han Cong
a favor for rescuing him.
“It’s fine. When we are outside we should lend a hand if we can.
Nothing bad will come from it.” Han Cong smiled as he replied. His gaze
swept over Xiao Yan’s body and said, “Moreover, this is all that I
can do. I am also helpless when it comes to your injuries. If we arrive
in Tian Bei City, it will be possible to invite an alchemist from a
medicinal shop to help treat you. However, it would require quite a large
amount of gold coins. An ordinary person would really have difficulty
affording it. The arrogance of alchemists is really too great, but no one
dares offend them. Even the clan leader of my Han clan would have to be
courteous when facing those fellows.”
Xiao Yan merely smiled. His injuries were not a problem. Although they
were extremely serious, it was basically commonplace for Xiao Yan, who
frequently suffered such injuries. As long as he was given some time, it
would not be a problem for his injuries to completely heal. This was
likely a good thing of being both a warrior and an alchemist. An opponent
that could not be killed was the most frightening.
“That’s right, big brother Han Cong. May I inquire if this is the
Central Plains?” Xiao Yan hesitated for a moment before abruptly
asking. He did not wish for himself to waste his time to pass through the
Wormhole only to end up being randomly thrown to another location on the
“Yes, this is the northern region of the Central Plains.” Han Cong
nodded his head. He immediately asked with surprise, “Is little brother
Xiao Yan not someone from the Central Plains?”
Xiao Yan bitterly laughed. He did not hide anything as he briefly spoke
about the matter of the Wormhole.
“So you met with a Space Storm. No wonder your injuries are so serious.
However, you can be considered lucky. There are very few people who are
able to escape alive after meeting a Space Storm within a Wormhole… our
Han clan has a guard platoon that was swallowed by a Space Storm when
they were passing through a Wormhole back then.” Han Cong finally came
to a sudden understanding after hearing Xiao Yan’s words. He
immediately smacked his mouth and exclaimed.
“The northern region of the Central Plains… may I know which region
the Pill Tower is in?” Xiao Yan mused for a moment before continuing to
“The Pill Tower huh. Ha ha, it is naturally at the middle region of the
Central Plains. Everyone in the Central Plains knows about it. However,
the northern region is somewhat far from there. Even if you were to use
the Wormhole, you would need to make quite a few transfers along the
way.” Han Chong said.
Xiao Yan nodded slightly. He did not know where the Little Fairy
Doctor’s group was. However, it was likely that nothing had happened to
them. He inferred that the reason the Spatial Strength turned wild and
violent when he entered the silver circle was likely because of the
enormous Spatial Force that had struck the exit earlier. The Little Fairy
Doctor’s group had already successfully exited before that dangerous
Spatial Strength appeared.
“Ha ha, brother Xiao Yan, you should stay on the carriage a little
longer since you have just woken up. It is still quite the distance to
Tian Bei City. If you have any needs during this period of time, you can
call me.” Han Cong looked at the quiet Xiao Yan and thought that the
reason for the silence was due to his injuries. He ceased disturbing Xiao
Yan as he smiled at him. After speaking, he turned around, pulled open
the curtain, and walked away. Xiao Yan was able to see that there were
quite a number of carriages around when he had pulled open the curtain.
Clearly, this was a convoy.
The interior of the carriage became quiet after Han Chong left. Xiao Yan
leaned on the wall of the carriage as thoughts flashed through his mind.
Now that he had been separated from the Little Fairy Doctor’s group due
to an accident, the most important thing was to recover from his
injuries. Otherwise, it would likely not be safe walking in this region
where the strong were as numerous as the clouds.

“There is still a very long time until the Pill Gathering of the Pill
Tower. If my injuries are completely healed, I might be able to roam this
Central Plains a little and inquire about the ‘Hall of Souls.’ I will
also have to find that extremely good friend of Yao Lao, Feng zun-zhe…
of course, perhaps I will also have to find the time to head to the
Burning Flame Valley to see if I can obtain the final two changes of the
Sky Fire Three Mysterious Change. Those would be a great use to me.”
Xiao Yan softly muttered to himself. Immediately, his eyes suddenly
became much brighter. “Additionally… I will also need to inquire
about the mysterious clan behind Xun Er… the current me is soon
approaching the requirement that Xun Er had set back then.”
These thoughts flew through Xiao Yan’s heart. A moment later, he let
out a long breath. He rubbed his forehead and sensed the empty feeling
within his body. His teeth were involuntarily clenched together in a
violent manner as he forcefully moved his disobedient legs into a
cross-legged training position. His hands formed the training seal as he
slowly shut his eyes. Regardless of what happened, recovering his
strength was the most important matter. This was especially the case when
he was in such a foreign place…
