Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-984
Xiao Yan tidied up his room a little the morning of the next day. After
which, he walked out of the room. He did not start his journey right
away. Instead, he walked to the second floor of the inn, and randomly
found a chair close to a window to sit in.
There were many people in the second story of the inn. It could be
considered a place filled with all sorts of people. This place was
usually where a great amount of news was passed around. Thus, one would
usually find it extremely easy to learn some news here. Additionally, one
would not end up stirring any attention from others. Xiao Yan asked for a
pot of sake. While he poured it and took a sip, his ears were absorbing
all of the conversations amid the noise.
It was just as he had expected. The current focus of the entire Bone
Transforming City was on the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool. The faces of
quite a number of people turned red when mentioning it. A dense greed was
present on their faces. It seemed that the allure of the Heavenly
Mountain Blood Pool was really too great. However, how could such a
treasure be encroached upon by these people? They were merely just
whining in this place.
“It is rumored that the Wind Lightning Pavilion, Ten Thousand Sword
Pavilion, and other stronger factions have dispatched their core elites
to head to the Heaven Eye Mountain Range. From the looks of it, they are
clearly targeting the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool.”
“Dammit, with these fellows participating, there will be fewer and
fewer of the ten spots left. Not everyone can enter the Heavenly Mountain
“Hei, what can we do? The other parties are great factions. It is best
for those without ability to not participate in this matter. Otherwise,
one would not only fail to benefit, one would also get into trouble.”
Xiao Yan frowned involuntarily when he heard this. It was unexpected that
the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool also possessed an allure to a faction
like the Wind Lightning Pavilion. Would he not end up attracting trouble
if he headed out and ended up meeting them.
“The four pavilions in the Central Plains will conduct a competition
called the ‘Four Pavilion Heaven’ every few years. Those who
participate in this competition are the most outstanding members of the
younger generation within each pavilion. It is likely that the Wind
Lightning Pavilion and the Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion are heading to the
Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool in preparation for it. I wonder if the
Yellow Spring Pavilion and the Falling Star Pavilion will participate.
The Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool does not have much of an effect on those
old fellows; it is a treasure for the younger generation. By soaking in
it, one would not only be able to wash one’s bones, but it might even
be able to help one breakthrough. There are only a couple of months left
before this season’s ‘Four Pavilion Heaven.’ If one could
breakthrough at this moment, the pavilion’s chances of victory would
greatly soar.” A somewhat skinny-looking man coldly laughed.
“It is rumored that there is a Miss Feng in the Wind Lightning Pavilion
who has an extremely frightening training talent. There are even rumors
that she will be the next pavilion head of the eastern pavilion.
Moreover, the Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion is also quite strong. Tang
Ying, who is known as Sky Fountain Sword, uses extremely mysterious,
skillful sword techniques. He is even able to exchange blows with some of
the experts from the older generation. They could be called the top of
the younger generation in the northern region. I wonder who will win if
they end up meeting in a fight.”
“Chi, these two people might be strong, but they seem to be a little
inferior when compared to the recent individual called Xiao Yan. The
Central Plains are filled with hidden talents. Who dares to call himself
the strongest?” A man with a scar on his face laughed.
“Xiao Yan? Is he the one who killed Chen Yun from the Wind Lightning
Pavilion and forcefully broke the Nine Heavenly Lightning Prison
Formation the remaining three Elders had set up?”
“Hee hee hee hee hee hee, that’s right. All of you did not see the
big battle in Tian Bei City back then. That was damn interesting. That
fellow looked to be only in his twenties, but his strength was absolutely
terrifying. He relied on his own strength to fight against three great
Dou Zongs. Moreover, the ancestor of the Hong clan, Hong Tian Xiao, also
came to an extremely miserable end. Who are Miss Feng and Tang Ying
compared to him?”
“You cannot put it this way. Although that Xiao Yan is very strong,
Miss Feng and Tang Ying are not weak either. According to what I know,
Xiao Yan used a kind of unknown secret technique back then to forcefully
raise his strength. Otherwise, he would have difficulty fighting against
three great Dou Zongs.”
Xiao Yan was involuntarily startled when he heard the conversation
suddenly focus on him. He immediately let out a bitter smile, took out a
Doupeng from his Storage Ring and quietly put it on his head. He did not
wish to end up exposing his identity, attracting unnecessary trouble.
Xiao Yan listened for a little longer and was planning to leave when a
silver-colored figure slowly appeared on the stairs of the inn. After
which, the figure climbed to the second floor.
The second story of the inn had become a lot quieter following the
appearance of this silver-colored figure. An aura that caused one to feel
pressure vaguely seeped out of the figure’s body. At a glance, one
could tell that this figure was not an ordinary person.
It was difficult to tell the age of the silver-colored human figure. His
face seemed somewhat young, but his hair was an old-white color that
faintly gave him an elderly appearance. The most shocking thing was that
this person possessed a pair of extremely rare white-colored eyes.
The silver-colored figure’s gaze slowly swept around him after he had
climbed the stairs. After which, he walked to a window. A moment later,
he paused beside the table Xiao Yan was occupying.
“May I have a seat?”
The silver-colored human figure smiled to Xiao Yan. However, despite what
his question and tone suggested, he had already sat opposite of Xiao Yan.
Everyone’s gazes were involuntarily shot toward Xiao Yan when they saw
this person sit opposite him. They only began to turn away after seeing
that Xiao Yan did not react. A noisiness started up once again.
Xiao Yan raised his head. He glanced at the other party somewhat
uncertainly. He was certain that he had never met this person. When he
was just about to speak, Tian Huo zun-zhe’s solemn voice suddenly
sounded quietly within his heart.
“Xiao Yan, be careful. This person’s strength is extremely
Xiao Yan tightened his grip on his winecup and a ripple was formed within
it. By being able to get Tian Huo zun-zhe to say such words, it was clear
that the other party’s strength was likely not one he could contend
On the surface, however, Xiao Yan remained impassive. He smiled and said,
“I did not reserve the seat you. You can sit if you want to. However, I
still have some other matters to deal with and cannot stay for long.
“You are not afraid of the Nine Heavenly Lightning Prison Formation
that the three Elders from the Wind Lightning Northern Pavilion formed.
Don’t tell me that you are afraid of me?” The silver-colored human
figure smiled. His voice had suddenly became a lot louder and clearer,
suppressing all the noise on the second floor of the inn. Immediately,
numerous stunned gazes were thrown over before pausing on Xiao Yan.
“He, don’t tell me that he is Xiao Yan?”
The expression under the Doupeng had gradually become darker and more
solemn. Xiao Yan’s eyes stared at the silver-colored human figure
opposite him as he slowly asked, “Just what great being are you? Tell
me your name. Hiding around is not the style of a skilled person.”

“Ha ha ha ha, I cannot be considered a skilled person. The reason I
have come here is mainly to demand something from you.” The
silver-robed man lifted his wine cup and laughed.
“What thing?” Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes. The Dou Qi within his body
had slowly begun circulating. As the saying went, those who come do not
have good intent and those with good intent do not come. This person was
clearly targeting him. Moreover, from this manner of his, it was likely
that he was not here to make friends.
“Three Thousand Lightning Illusionary Body.”
The silver-robed man smiled faintly to Xiao Yan. However, his soft voice
caused Xiao Yan to suddenly stand up. A deep voice demanded, “You are
someone from the Wind Lightning Pavilion?”
“Other people call the old me Tian Lei Zi.” The silver-robed man’s
finger was inserted into the cup and a lightning arc shuttled around the
cup like a small snake.
“Tian Lei Zi, Fei Tian, the pavilion head of the Wind Lightning
The silver-robed man’s words had just sounded when waves of the sound
wine cups make while falling appeared. Immediately, numerous shocked
exclamations were involuntarily emitted.
Xiao Yan’s eyes suddenly shrank when he heard the final few words:
‘head of the Wind Lightning Northern Pavilion.’ The Heavy Xuan Ruler
had appeared like a reflex action. His ruler violently hacked at the head
of the silver-robed man in a violent manner. A sonic boom was formed on
the ruler, shattering the table into powder despite being some distance
“It is really a little rude to treat an old man like you do.”
The silver-robed man faintly smiled. His finger was gently flicked and a
bright lightning glow shot out from it. It collided with the heavy ruler.
The lightning glow was just like a poisonous snake that burrowed into
Xiao Yan’s hand.
Xiao Yan let out a cold snort when he saw this. A jade-green flame surged
out of his hand and collided with the lightning glow. A thunderclap
sounded and both were eliminated.
“It is indeed a ‘Heavenly Flame.’ However, given my eyesight, I am
unable to see where it belongs to on the ‘Heavenly Flame
Ranking…’” Surprise flashed across the silver-robed man’s eyes
when he saw the jade-green flame. He whispered.
Xiao Yan swiftly stored away his heavy ruler after his futile attack. His
body trembled and a rumbling thunder sounded and his body charged out of
the window. With a shake of his back, the bone wings were extended.
Finally, he transformed into a ray of light, that shot out of the city
with a swoosh sound. The frightening speed left anyone watching
“It is indeed the Three Thousand Lightning Movement!”
That silver-robed man was not in a hurry to give chase when he saw Xiao
Yan flee. He drank all of the wine in the wine pot in one go before
slowly standing up. The corner of his mouth was lifted into a cold smile
as he looked in the direction Xiao Yan had fled.
“Little fellow, you won’t be able to escape. It is indeed as Elder
Lei and the others described. You possess a couple of ‘Heavenly
Flames’ in your body. If I have guessed correctly, the jade-green
‘Heavenly Flame,’ which I have never seen before, should be something
formed from the merger of ‘Heavenly Flames.’
“Tsk tsk, the old me has never even heard of a Qi Method that can merge
‘Heavenly Flames’ in my entire life. It is really an eye-opener this

Fei Tian smiled. There was an extremely interested expression within
those silver-white eyes. He immediately stepped forward and his body
quietly disappeared in a ghost-like manner.
Only after Fei Tian disappeared did the completely silent second story of
the inn gradually recover. Everyone looked at each other with shock. It
was unexpected that they would actually meet this legendary old demon
today. Moreover, they were also extremely surprised that this old demon
was personally chasing Xiao Yan.
“It is likely that the little fellow is going to be extremely unlucky
this time around. This old demon Fei Tian is rumored to have become an
eight star Dou Zong a number of years ago. However, by being able to get
this old demon Fei Tian to act personally, it is already sufficient for
his name to be known throughout the entire northern region… such a
treatment is not something an ordinary person can enjoy.”
There were some sighs vaguely emitted from the crowd.
