Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-969
The raving roar that was filled with killing intent reverberated
unceasingly over the sky of Tian Bei City like thunder, causing the
entire city to be momentarily quiet. Numerous gazes that faintly carried
some shock were shot in the direction the voice had originated.
The roar had naturally reached the Sky Stone Stage. Immediately, everyone
emitted waves after waves of exclamations. Their gazes followed the
direction the voice had originated in before finally pausing above the
Hong clan household.
“It is actually Hong Tian Xiao. Unexpectedly, he has also been stirred
this time around!”
“That Xiao Yan is likely going to be unlucky this time around. That
Hong Tian Xiao is rumored to be a five star Dou Zong. His strength is
even greater than Chen Yun from the Wind Lightning Pavilion. Although
Xiao Yan has the help of the puppet, he will definitely be unable to
resist the attacks of two elite Dou Zongs.”
Xiao Yan ignored the private conversations around him. His fist tightened
slightly. If the Little Fairy Doctor had been here or if Tian Huo zun-zhe
was awake, he would not need to be afraid of the ancestor of the Hong
clan. Unfortunately, one of his two great helpers had been separated from
him while the other was in slumber. Xiao Yan really had difficulty
defeating two elite Dou Zongs by just relying on the Earth Demon Puppet
unless he used the Angry Buddha Lotus Flame that was formed from three
‘Heavenly Flames.’ However, if he did that, he would definitely be
weakened. This place was the territory of the Hong clan. Moreover, there
was the existence of the Wind Lightning Pavilion five hundred kilometers
away. It was clear that it would be disadvantageous for him if he got too
entangled in this place.
“Looks like I can only withdraw first today…” This thought flashed
through Xiao Yan’s heart. His gaze swiftly turned to the Earth Demon
Puppet, who was fighting an intense battle with Hong Yun. His brows were
involuntarily knit together. That old fellow Chen Yun seemed to have
already become aware of his intention. At this moment, he had suddenly
gone all out to pester the Earth Demon Puppet, attempting to prevent it
from being taken by Xiao Yan.
“You’re seeking death!”
Xiao Yan’s eyes became chilly when he saw the actions of Chen Yun.
Aware of the sudden surge in killing intent within Xiao Yan’s heart,
the body of the Earth Demon Puppet suddenly unleashed a glaring
silver-colored glow. Its attacking speed suddenly increased as both its
hands were like hammers which violently smashed toward Chen Yun,
unleashing a frightening force.
Chen Yun’s expression also changed slightly upon sensing the sudden
increase in the Earth Demon Puppet’s speed. He hurriedly maneuvered all
the Dou Qi within his body. Despite this, his body trembled each time it
collided with the Earth Demon Puppet. A numb feeling was being
transmitted from his arm.
“Dammit. Just what is this puppet made off? Its physical strength is
actually this terrifying!” Chen Yun’s heart involuntarily felt some
shock as he sensed the pain that was transmitted from his arm.
“Xiao Yan, leave quickly. Don’t delay any longer. It will be too late
if you delay any longer!”
Han Chi’s anxious voice was quietly transmitted over when Xiao Yan was
controlling the Earth Demon Puppet, making it increase its attacking
Xiao Yan merely shook his head when he heard Han Chi’s reminder. He
sensed that he had been locked onto by an aura that was filled with
killing intent. Even if he were to turn around and leave now, the other
party would swiftly catch up with him.
A glow flickered in Xiao Yan’s eyes as his hand suddenly grabbed toward
the enormous pit. A suction force surged and pulled Hong Li’s body from
it. Xiao Yan grabbed his body and observed him. Immediately, Xiao Yan let
out a cold laugh and said, “You really have quite a strong life. I am
unable to kill you even after all this. But, it’s just as well…”
The eyelids of the unconscious Hong Li twitched upon hearing Xiao Yan’s
words. He wanted to open his eyes, but his serious injuries caused him to
simply give up after a futile attempt.
The sharp sound of rushing wind resounded over the sky after Xiao Yan had
grabbed Hong Li. Immediately, a vague figure wildly shot toward the Sky
Stone Stage in a lightning-like manner. The dark and dense killing intent
that spread out of the figure could be sensed despite the great distance
“Brat, put Hong Li down. Otherwise, you’ll die!”
That human figure saw the person whom Xiao Yan was grabbing with his
hands from a great distance. Immediately, a furious roar was once again
Chen Yun, who was bitterly enduring, felt a joy in his heart upon hearing
this roar. His peripheral sight glanced over and did indeed see Hong Tian
Xiao’s figure. He hurriedly cried out, “Old fellow Hong, the people
from your Hong clan have all died to this brat’s hand. Quickly kill
A silver glow suddenly broke Chen Yun’s blockade when those words had
just left his mouth and a fist violently smashed into his arm. Chen Yun
let out a moan under this great strength landed. A thread of fresh blood
seeped out of the corner of his mouth.
The light figure that had hurried over paused upon hearing Chen Yun’s
cry, revealing a red-clothed, yellow-faced, old man. He knit his brows
and looked at the Earth Demon Puppet which was pestering Chen Yun. A
solemness also appeared in his eyes. With his eyesight, he was naturally
able to tell that Chen Yun was being suppressed and defeated by the
“What are you looking for? This puppet is something that belongs to
that brat. Once you restrain him, the puppet will naturally stop. Quickly
attack. Don’t let that brat escape! Otherwise, the members of your Hong
clan would have died for no reason!”
Chen Yun furiously cried out while Hong Tian Xiao was startled by the
Earth Demon Puppet.
Hong Tian Xiao’s sinister gaze slowly paused on Xiao Yan in the sky
upon hearing Chen Yun’s cry. He said in a dense manner, “Brat,
obediently release Hong Li. The old me will let you have a quick death!”
Xiao Yan was expressionless. His gaze glanced at Chen Yun, who was being
suppressed by the Earth Demon Puppet’s attacks. From the looks of it,
the puppet might be able to kill this old fellow if there was a little
more time. Moreover, even if it was unable to truly kill him, it would
definitely turn him into a seriously injured state!
Xiao Yan wanted to delay some time but Hong Tian Xiao would not give him
the opportunity to do so. He had naturally been able to tell that Chen
Yun would not be able to endure for long under the powerful puppet.
“Regardless of who your elders are, the old me will definitely not
allow you to leave in one piece after you have killed so many people from
my Hong clan!” Hong Tian Xiao sinisterly spoke. His body shook and it
transformed into a light figure that rushed toward Xiao Yan. That stern
killing intent caused a chillness to appear on the skin of quite a number
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared intently at Hong Tian Xiao, who had rushed over,
before he suddenly let out a cold smile. His palm pressed on Hong Li’s
chest while grabbing his shoulders. After which, he used all his strength
to violently toss Hong Li in a manner similar to throwing shot put.
“Old fellow, I have hid a hidden force within Hong Li’s body. If you
do not catch up to him and resolve it, he will definitely die once the
hidden force explodes!” Xiao Yan laughed out loud after throwing Hong
The light figure that was wildly charging at Xiao Yan suddenly paused.
Hong Tian Xiao gaze hesitated for a moment before he let out a furious
roar. He turned around and swiftly gave chase in the direction Hong Li
had been thrown. Although his body had moved, another roar, that was
filled with killing intent, was transmitted into Xiao Yan’s ears.
“Brat, I will use the name of the ancestor of the Hong clan to swear
that I will break all the bones in your body one at a time and let you
taste what it’s like being able to neither live nor die!”
Xiao Yan completely ignored Hong Tian Xiao’s vicious roar. He had
really heard too many similar threats. However, no one had managed to
realize them even today.
Hong Tian Xiao had just turned around when Xiao Yan’s sinister gaze
suddenly shot toward Chen Yun. The corner of his mouth was lifted into a
dark and cold arc as his hand seals suddenly flew. Powerful Dou Qi was
Chen Yun’s heart suddenly sank when he sensed Xiao Yan’s actions. He
was already barely able to face the Earth Demon Puppet’s attack. If
Xiao Yan were to join in at this moment, it was likely that his fate
would be a terrible one.
“This old bastard, so what if that fellow dies? He is just a trash,
what need is there to rescue him?” Chen Yun could only furiously curse
Hong Tian Xiao in his heart while he panicked. He had similarly not
expect that in the face of two elite Dou Zong revealing themselves, Xiao
Yan did not choose to immediately flee. Instead, he had diverted one of
them away and focused his strength on dealing with the other. This kind
of all out tactic was a crazy one!
Another punch with frightening strength was violently sent flying over,
and scattered the majestic Dou Qi in front of Chen Yun, shaking him until
he continued to step back.
A feeling of danger rose within Chen Yun’s heart as his footsteps
hurried back. The corner of his eyes drifted and one could only see a
vague figure appearing behind him. A palm-sized crystal energy handprint
had quietly appeared where the figure’s hand was located. The energy
that was contained in it caused Chen Yun’s face to change.
“Sea Flipping Seal!”
Xiao Yan cried out furiously in his heart. The hand seal was swung out in
a lightning-like manner, and struck at a fatal point on Chen Yun’s back.
Chen Yun’s face became exceptionally ugly as he sensed the attack that
came from behind him. If this had occurred at a normal time, it was
definitely not difficult for him to dodge. However, at this moment, the
Earth Demon Puppet’s fist wind had sealed off the space around him. He
was unable to use his agility Dou Skills. All he could do was clench his
teeth and swiftly turn around. A majestic waterfall like Dou Qi shot out
from both his hands.
The majestic Dou Qi and the Seal Flipping Seal fiercely collided. Xiao
Yan’s body shook and he hurriedly withdrew over a dozen steps. On the
other hand, Chen Yun merely withdrew one step. However, his already pale
face grew even paler.
Chen Yun had yet to have the time to relax after having taken a step back
when a wild and violent strength, that caused his expression to change,
appeared in a lightning-like manner behind him. After which, it
ruthlessly struck his shoulders.
Chen Yun was finally unable to endure any longer after suffering this
heavy blow. A mouthful of fresh red blood was spat out. His body rubbed
against the ground, forming a scar that was dozens of meters long.
The Earth Demon Puppet continued to rush over after Chen Yun’s body had
just withdrawn. It grabbed Chen Yun’s arm and broke the finger he wore
his Storage Ring on in front of a countless number of shocked gazes.
The Earth Demon Puppet held the broken finger tightly and ceased
launching any attacks. Instead, it swiftly rushed to where Xiao Yan was
located. Finally, Xiao Yan stored it into his Storage Ring with a wave of
his hand. The Storage Ring that was removed from Chen Yun’s finger also
fell into his hand.
“Ha ha, thank you for your gift Elder Chen!”
Xiao Yan held the Storage Ring and laughed out loud. His gaze glanced at
the northern sky. There was a furious aura wildly hurrying over from that
“Have you discovered something missing…”
A cold laugh sounded as Xiao Yan swiftly spread the bone wings behind
him. With a flap of the bone wings, he rose into the sky, and left.
“Little bastard, my Wind Lightning Pavilion will not cease chasing you
until you die!”
Chen Yun forcefully endured the intense pain that was transmitted from
his finger. Both of his eyes were blood-red as his teeth violently bit
the tip of his tongue. Some essence blood was spat out. The blood had a
faint lightning glow lingering within it. With a vicious glance at Xiao
Yan, he waved his hand and the essence blood lightning glow was divided
into two. One of them penetrated shot toward Xiao Yan while the other
flew toward the southern sky.
The essence blood that came flashing over shocked Xiao Yan. He extended
his wings and his body rose to the sky in a lightning-like manner.
However, the essence blood lightning glow was unusually fast. With a
flash, it shot into Xiao Yan’s body.
The essence blood lightning glow did not do anything to cause the
slightest discomfort to Xiao Yan when it entered his body. He frowned a
little while the vicious voice of Chen Yun was once again transmitted
“You have been hit with the blood lightning seal of my Wind Lightning
Pavilion. My Wind Lightning Pavilion will be able to find you no matter
where you run off. Little bastard, I want to see just where you can
“I will accompany you until the end!”
Xiao Yan laughed coldly upon hearing Chen Yun’s words. His gaze paused
for an instant on the members of the Han clan. After which, he flapped
his bone wings, and transformed into a light figure, that swiftly fled to
the sky above Tian Bei City, before disappearing in the blink of an eye…
