Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-963
Only when the last jade-green flame shrink into Xiao Yan’s body did the
soaring aura finally come to a slow stop…
Not even the slightest Dou Qi seeped from the surface of Xiao Yan’s
body. However, an invisible pressure swiftly spread out with Xiao Yan in
the middle. This pressurizing feeling was far stronger than Hong Chen’s
after he had used the Lightning God Descend. If Hong Chen was currently
at the level of a nine star Dou Huang, Xiao Yan should truly be at the
peak of the Dou Huang class. He was merely just one step away from the
Dou Zong class!
“What a powerful Secret Technique… this increase in strength is
something that even the Lightning God Descent of the Wind Lightning
Pavilion could not be compared with. Ke ke, looks like Xue-er has really
invited quite an incredible being…” Han Chi looked at Xiao Yan, whose
aura was vaguely similar to his, from the Han clan’s seats. Surprise
involuntarily surfaced on his face as he smiled and spoke to himself.
“When he was in the Inner Academy back then, he had dared to intervene
in a battle between Dou Haungs when he was still an ordinary Da Dou Shi.
Now that a couple of years have passed, his achievements would naturally
be even more terrifying. Although Hong Chen is a genius, he is inferior
in front of Xiao Yan.” Han Yue smiled sweetly as she explained. She
also rejoiced upon seeing Xiao Yan getting the upper hand. After all,
this was related to her marriage. It would be a lie if she said she was
Han Xue by the side also softly laughed when she heard what Han Chi had
said. Her pretty eyes stared at the linen-clothed, young man in the
arena. Those clothes that were usually extremely ordinary looking gave
her a feeling of a special yet ordinary vigor when they were worn by him.
It was just like a peerless sword that was hidden within an ordinary
scabbard, emitting a sharp sword aura that cause one to be afraid…
The young man currently in the arena was undoubtedly the most dazzling
existence on the Sky Stone Stage…
Xiao Yan let in a long breath as he sensed the surging strength within
his body. Borrowing the effects of the Secret Technique, he had already
reached the peak of the Dou Huang class. During this instant, he seemed
to have vaguely sensed a non-existent film layer. This film layer did not
appear to exist. However, regardless of how the strength in his body
climbed, he ultimately had difficulty touching it. There was no need to
even discuss breaking through it…
“This… could this be the barrier to breakthrough to the Dou Zong
class…” Xiao Yan thought deeply while he muttered to himself in a
soft voice. After the brief experiment, he was vaguely aware that the Dou
Qi needed to breakthrough to the Dou Zong class would definitely be an
extremely frightening amount. Even though he was currently at the peak of
the Dou Huang class, there was still an extremely great distance to that
This small step was something that many experts were unable to leap past
during their lives. One could imagine the difficulty involved.
“If I am in possession of the last two changes of the Skyfire
Mysterious Change at this moment and use them in collaboration with the
‘Heavenly Flame,’ would I be able to breakthrough that barrier?”
Xiao Yan’s eyes flickered while his heart felt a little boiling hot.
This method might really be of some use. If he had the time in the
future, he might be able to give it a try.
Xiao Yan’s swiftly pulled his mind back to reality as this thought
flashed through his heart. He slowly raised his head and smiled at the
solemn-faced Hong Chen on the opposite side. His hand immediately held
his heavy ruler tightly as his foot stepped forward.
With a step, he had nearly flashed over hundreds of feet.
Hong Chen’s expression also changed slightly the instant Xiao Yan
stepped forward. Silver-colored lightning hurriedly surfaced under his
feet. Immediately, his body shook…
A dark-black heavy ruler suddenly appeared above Hong Chen’s head. It
ruthlessly smashed against his head. However, no blood was seen
splattering. Instead, the ruler passed through the figure.
“Three Thousand Lightning Movement huh?”
Xiao Yan laughed coldly in his heart after his body reappeared. His feet
suddenly shifted by over a dozen step in a strange manner. The heavy
ruler was just like a long lance that pierced straight toward a certain
space in front.
A dark-black metal hammer hurriedly appeared from the empty space when
the heavy ruler was pierced out. The hammer collided heavily with the
ruler. Immediately, one could see a figure appearing. Hong Chen’s feet
stomped on the ground as he hurriedly pulled back by over ten steps. Only
then did he stabilize his body.
“Why does the Three Thousand Lightning Movement not have any effect on
him?” Shock flashed across Hong Chen’s face after his position was
once again easily identified by Xiao Yan. His hand, which was holding the
Mighty Lightning Ruler, trembled slightly. That fierce attack by Xiao Yan
earlier had nearly turned his entire arm numb. After having used the
Skyfire Three Mysterious Change, Xiao Yan’s strength had clearly become
even stronger than Hong Chen’s.
The cold smile on the corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth widened after forcing
Hong Chen back with a swing of his ruler. He took repeated steps, each of
them ten meters in distance. In the blink of an eye, he once again caught
up with Hong Chen. His arm trembled and numerous ruler shadows repeatedly
appeared. Finally, they appeared to have transformed into enormous great
waves that came one after another as they violently smashed onto Hong
Faced with this sudden wild, violent attack by Xiao Yan, Hong Chen had
become miserable-looking. The Mighty Lightning Hammer in his hand danced
repeatedly as it carried a faint wind lightning sound and viciously swung
toward the ruler’s shadows that covered Xiao Yan.
Clang! Qiang! Clang!
Two human figures flashed repeatedly on the arena. The speed of the two
was extremely great. An ordinary person was only able to hear the
repeated sounds of weapons clashing and the sparks that erupted from
them. Only those people with sharp eyes were able to find the bodies of
the two people.
At this moment, the situation in the arena was one where Hong Chen had
gradually fallen into a disadvantage after Xiao Yan had used the Skyfire
Three Mysterious Change. His Dou Qi was not as powerful as Xiao Yan’s.
When comparing agility, Xiao Yan was able to rely on his Spiritual
Perception to identify the position of Hong Chen at any time. If it was
in terms of physical strength, Xiao Yan’s body was far stronger than
Hong Chen after having been refined by many natural treasures and the
‘Heavenly Flames.’ How could Hong Chen fight with Xiao Yan in this
situation were he was always at a disadvantage?
Any sharp-eyed people could tell that the chances of Hong Chen winning in
this kind of situation were already beginning to sharply decline.
The people from the Han and Hong clan were naturally among those who
could sense such a situation. The Han clan members were revealing a dense
smile while the Hong clan members were becoming gloomy. They had full
confidence in Hong Chen. This confidence originated from his performance
over the years and ability. However, they had never imagined that the Han
clan would find an expert who could really contend with Hong Chen or was
even stronger than him…
This had caught them by surprise.
The heavy ruler and the metal hammer once again violently collided. Xiao
Yan’s eyes turned slightly cold. His arm was like a snake as it was
twisted in a strange fashion before suddenly appearing in front of Hong
Chen. Xiao Yan’s palm smashed down and struck Hong Chen’s chest in a
A powerful force immediately swept over Hong Lie’s body like floodwater
as the palm fell. His face turned white and a mouthful of fresh blood was
spat out. His body suddenly shot backwards, dragging over the ground and
forming a scar that was over a dozen meters in length. Only then did his
body slowly stop.
The sudden change in the arena also caused an exclamation to break out
all around them. It was the first time that a person had really spit out
blood and become injured since both parties had begun to fight. Moreover,
the shock on their faces became even denser when they saw that the
person, who had been forced back after being injured, was Hong Chen.
With the battle having continued until such a stage, some people who had
observed carefully had discovered that Hong Chen had not even touched
Xiao Yan’s clothes since the beginning. Yet, Hong Chen had already
ended up in an exceptionally miserable state.
Xiao Yan raised his eyes slightly after forcing Hong Chen back with a
palm. He glanced at Hong Chen on the ground in the distance and faintly
said, “Stand up, that palm won’t take your life.”
“Pah.” Hong Chen’s face was dark and cold. His eyes were filled
with a ferociousness. A mouthful of fresh blood that was mixed with his
saliva was spat out before he slowly climbed up. Sinister words were
emitted from his mouth, “You are the first from the same generation who
has forced me into such a state.”
Hong Chen rubbed the blood trace from the corner of his mouth. He raised
his head and revealed a pair of savage eyes that seemed to belong to an
injured wild beast. He violently bit his tongue and a mouthful of fresh
blood was spat out. It was scattered onto the Mighty Lightning Hammer.
When the fresh blood made contact with the hammer, a bloody stench
immediately began to spread over the Mighty Lightning Hammer.
Hong Chen inhaled a deep breath of air while his hand held the Mighty
Lightning Hammer. A roar was immediately emitted from his mouth as
violent lightning affinity Dou Qi surged out of his body in a cackling
manner, appearing just like lightning. Finally, it completely gathered on
the Mighty Lightning Hammer in his hand.
With the gathering of an increasing amount of lightning Dou Qi, the blood
trace on the Mighty Lightning Hammer also scattered. It merged with the
lightning Dou Qi, causing the wild and violent strength within it to soar
by many times.
Looking at Hong Chen’s actions in the arena, the expressions of those
in the Hong clan changed slightly. The gray-clothed, old man also sighed
softly as he said, “He has actually forced Hong Chen to use the Dou
Skill that was personally taught to him by the Pavilion leader of our
Northern Pavilion. This Xiao Yan is indeed very strong. It is likely that
there’s hardly anyone among the same generation of the Wind Lightning
Pavilion who could compete with him. Unless…”
The gray-clothed, old man shook slightly when his words reached this
point. Immediately, he muttered, “Unless Miss Feng is the one
Hong Lie’s body immediately stiffened when he heard this. His
suppressed voice spoke with shock, “Miss Feng? Old Huan, are you
referring to that Miss Feng who was the only one in the Wind Lightning
Pavilion within the last hundred years who had passed through the Sky
Lightning Tower test?”
The gray-clothed, old man nodded indifferently. He did not say anything
else as his eyes looked at the arena.
The Dou Qi within Hong Chen’s body in the arena was completely poured
into the Mighty Lightning Hammer. A lightning glow that was over a
hundred feet in size lingered over him, wrapping his entire body within
“Exterminating Lightning Hammer!”
A hoarse voice was suddenly emitted from within the lightning glow.
Immediately, the Mighty Lightning Hammer in Hong Chen’s hand appeared
like an enormous sky lightning that violently smashed into the ground. At
that instant, the entire Sky Stone Stage began to shake in an intense
The Mighty Lightning Hammer smashed heavily onto the ground. Enormous
cracks repeatedly spread out. Immediately, a lightning glow that was over
a hundred feet in size transformed into a savage lightning beast that
shook the ground and formed many crack the moment its four limbs landed
on the ground. After taking a couple of steps in this manner, it appeared
above Xiao Yan’s head like lightning. A soul-stirring roar sounded and
its claw, which was agglomerated from lightning, violently smashed toward
Xiao Yan’s head.
Space became distorted with this attack. Threads of dark-black spatial
lines had even vaguely appeared. This force was indeed terrifying.
Faced with this savage lightning beast’s frightening speed and attack,
Xiao Yan also felt a little surprised in his heart. A silver glow
suddenly appeared under his feet. Immediately, his body let out a
‘Xiu’ sound, transforming into numerous afterimages as he withdrew,
easily dodging the lightning beasts lightning-like attack. However, Xiao
Yan appeared to have thought of something after having withdrawn for a
short distance. He suddenly stopped his body while his heart cried out
‘this is bad.’
The instant Xiao Yan’s body stopped, the gray-clothed, old man in the
Hong clan’s seat suddenly widened his eyes. He immediately stood up in
shock. His clothes moved in the absence of the wind as his gaze stared
intently at Xiao Yan. Each of his words was spoke with a pause, “Three
Thousand Lightning Movement?”
