Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-985
A ray of light rushed outside Bone Transforming City in a lightning-like
manner. In the blink of an eye, it charged into the mountain range that
was outside of the city.
Xiao Yan activated his bone wings to their maximum strength, raising his
speed to a frightening extent. His expression was a little gloomy as his
figure rushed forward. Although he did not sense Fei Tian giving chase,
he did not think that young-looking old fellow would give up so easily.
“Just how did this old fellow find me? I have been traveling through
the deep mountains and old forests during this period of time. It is
impossible for the people from the Wind Lightning Pavilion to discover
Some doubt appeared in Xiao Yan’s heart as his figure flashed. The
northern region of the Central Plains was so large. Regardless of how
capable Fei Tian was, it was impossible for this person to find him in a
sea of people without reason. Moreover, looking at his manner earlier, it
was clear that this person was already aware of his position. Could he
have been discovered by the spies from the Wind Lightning Pavilion when
he had entered the city yesterday? Even if that was the case, this place
was already beyond the territory of the Wind Lightning Pavilion. It was
impossible for a spy from the Wind Lightning Pavilion to pass the
information back to the Wind Lightning Pavilion within a day even if that
spy had discovered him..
Doubt appeared in Xiao Yan’s heart. He involuntarily felt a sense of
danger. That fellow might appear like a light breeze, but he actually
gave Xiao Yan a dangerous feeling. This kind of feeling was something
that Xiao Yan had seldom sensed on anyone except the unfathomable Qian
Bai Elders and the Old Ground Demon Ghost.
“This old fellow’s strength is at least that of an eight star Dou
Zong. Even if I used Tian Huo zun-zhe’s strength it would be difficult
for me to face him head-on unless I used the Extermination Fire Lotus,
but that is ultimately my life preservation skill. Unless it is
absolutely necessary, it is best not to use it…”
These thoughts flew swiftly across Xiao Yan’s heart. However, his speed
was not the least bit reduced. His body was just like a meteorite that
disappeared into the horizon in the blink of an eye.
“That old fellow… has really given up chasing after me?”
Xiao Yan flew wildly for nearly ten plus minutes. His eyebrows were knit
even more tightly when he saw that no one had given chase. Finally, he
muttered in a soft voice.
“The old me said that you won’t be able to escape…”
A faint laugh was suddenly transmitted from a distance while Xiao Yan was
softly muttering to himself. His body stiffened. Immediately, his eyes
shrank and locked onto a mountain peak in front of him. The silver-robed
Fei Tian was standing their with his hands behind his back. His
silver-white eyes were mocking Xiao Yan.
“This old fellow’s speed is really frightening…” Xiao Yan inhaled
a breath of cool air. His expression had become solemn. It seemed that
there would likely be some trouble today.
“You might possess the Three Thousand Lightning Movement and those
mysterious bone wings. However, you have chosen the wrong target if you
wish to compete with the old me in terms of speed.” Fei Tian smiled as
“Just what are you planning to do?” Xiao Yan cried out in a deep
voice. His eyes swept all around him without leaving a trace, searching
for a route to flee.
“Hand over the Three Thousand Lightning Illusionary Body to the old me.
You might have gathered the four scrolls, but it is still impossible for
you to practice it. Hence, it is a waste leaving them on you.” Fei Tian
spoke in a faint voice.
“You will allow me to leave if I return the Three Thousand Lightning
Illusionary Body to you?” Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed as he slowly asked.
Fei Tian merely smiled when he heard this. He gently stepped forward and
his body appeared a hundred meters away from Xiao Yan in a strange
manner. He laughed, “The old me is also interested in your Qi Method
that can merge ‘Heavenly Flames.’ I might let you go if you hand it
over to me.”
Xiao Yan’s expression had completely turned gloomy when he heard these
words. Flame Mantra was his greatest support. The reason he had been able
to reach this level today was largely because of Flame Mantra. If this
fellow wanted to snatch Flame Mantra from him, it was little different
than taking his life away. Moreover, it was impossible for Xiao Yan to
hand over such a mysterious Qi Method like the Flame Mantra to an
outsider, and the Wind Lightning Pavilion could be considered his enemy.
“The old me knows that you possess an extremely powerful spiritual body
in your body. I am able to vaguely sense its existence. However, a
spiritual body is ultimately just a spiritual body. If he had been more
than a spiritual body, the old me would likely have to withdraw today.
Unfortunately…” Fei Tian was unconcerned when he saw Xiao Yan’s
gloomy expression. His gaze slowly drifted over Xiao Yan’s body before
finally pausing on the snow-white Storage Ring on his finger. He laughed
in a faint voice.
“Hmph, what arrogant words. If the old me was in an actual body, would
he dare to stand in front of me now?” The snow-white ring trembled
slightly and Tian Huo zun-zhe’s spirit slowly rose. He looked at Fei
Tian across from him and coldly laughed.
Fei Tian’s expression changed a little. His gaze slowly swept over Tian
Huo zun-zhe. This person was already able to reach such a level by just
being a spiritual body. This person was definitely a Dou Zun class
ultimate expert when he was alive.
“A hero doesn’t mention his old achievements. There is no ‘if’
when it comes to the matters of this world. Regardless of how great you
were when you were alive, the current you is merely a spiritual
body…” A gradual coldness also surfaced in Fei Tian’s indifferent
voice. “Xiao Yan, as long as you hand over the Three Thousand Lightning
Illusionary Body and the Qi Method you practice, the old me shall allow
you to leave. This spiritual body cannot protect your life!”
“A mere eight star Dou Zong also dares to act so arrogant in front of
the old me…” Tian Huo zun-zhe angrily laughed. He turned his head to
Xiao Yan and softly said, “Leave first. I will block him.”
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard these words. Although he really
disliked that old demon Fei Tian, he knew that what he had said was true.
The current Tian Huo zun-zhe at the very most had a strength similar to
Fei Tian. Moreover, he was at a disadvantage since he was a spiritual
body. If they were to fight, Tian Huo zun-zhe’s chances of victory were
“Relax, I know my limits. I will only block him for awhile. There is no
need for you to worry. That ring of mine has my spiritual imprint. I have
my own method of shaking him off.” Tian Huo zun-zhe continued, aware of
the worry in Xiao Yan’s heart.
Xiao Yan hesitated for a moment when he heard him. He soon violently
nodded. He was indeed of little help by remaining here. He ceased
hesitating, opened his bone wings, and flapped with all his might,
transforming into a ray of light that wildly rushed in another direction.
Fei Tian knit his brows slightly when he saw Xiao Yan flee. His feet
stepped forward and was just about to give chase when he realized that
the surrounding space had actually become distorted.
“It has been many years since I have fought with someone. Allow me to
test your skills today!”
Tian Huo zun-zhe somewhat illusionary figure slowly appeared in front of
Fei Tian. He clenched his hand and a longsword that was agglomerated from
Spiritual Strength appeared.
“Regardless of how you block me, he will ultimately be unable to escape
Fei Tian coldly laughed. His body shook and a bright lightning glow
surged of him in a cackling manner. Following the appearance of the
lightning glow, the clouds in the sky above gradually became dark. Silver
serpent-like lightning was vaguely shuttling within it. This old demon
had actually reached the stage where he could use his own Dou Qi to
communicate with natural energy…
Fei Tian’s hand reached forward. A lightning glow flashed and a long
spear that was agglomerated from lightning appeared with a ‘chi chi’
sound. The body of the spear shook along with space itself.
Tian Huo zun-zhe was not afraid despite seeing this strong skill of Fei
Tian. He let out a loud laugh as his majestic Spiritual Strength swept
out. His body moved and the spiritual longsword pierced forward while
forming numerous spiritual ripples.
Fei Tian laughed in the face of Tian Huo zun-zhe’s attack. The
lightning spear in his hand carried an incomparable lightning Dou Qi
which emitted a repeated ‘chi chi’ sound. Finally, it was violently
The clear sound of a collision resounded across the entire sky. In the
face of this strange sonic wave, some of the weaker Magical Beast in the
mountain range below felt a crack in their head before bursting apart.
The strength that was exchanged between the two was actually this
Xiao Yan’s figure was rushing forward like a ray of light. He had also
sensed a little of the change in the sky far behind him. However, he did
not turn around. Tian Huo zun-zhe had put in a great amount of effort to
buy him some time. Turning around would be the most foolish decision.
“Old bastard, I shall remember today’s grudge. I will definitely
repay you in the future!”
Xiao Yan clenched his teeth. His expression was a little ferocious. That
old fellow had actually targeted the Flame Mantra. This had completely
infuriated Xiao Yan.
Killing intent churned in Xiao Yan’s heart. However, his speed was not
reduced by even a little. With a ‘swoosh’ sound, the light ray flew
across the sky, instantly disappearing on the edge of the mountain range.
This all out flying continued for nearly twenty minutes or so when the
space in front of Xiao Yan became distorted. Immediately, a Spiritual
Strength came out of the space. It was surprisingly Tian Huo zun-zhe, who
had stayed behind to block Fei Tian earlier. At this moment, Tian Huo
zun-zhe’s expression was a little solemn. His figure also seemed paler
than it had been earlier. From the looks of it, he had experienced a
violent fight with that old demon Fei Tian during these twenty minutes.
“Leave quickly, teleportation through space is something that only an
elite Dou Zun can do. If I had not reached the Dou Zun level and am
currently a spiritual body, it is likely that I would have difficulty
using it. However, that fellow’s speed is extremely frightening. It is
likely that he will catch up within a short while.” Tian Huo zun-zhe
urged in an anxious voice the moment he appeared.
Xiao Yan nodded his head. He was just about to move when a thought
suddenly flashed through his heart. He spoke in a solemn voice,
“Something’s wrong… I have a feeling that the old fellow has locked
onto my location… I think that it is likely that I am in possession of
something that is directing him to our location…”
Hearing this, Tian Huo zun-zhe also nodded while deeply thinking. No
wonder that fellow dared to say that Xiao Yan would not be able to escape
“I am certain that my body doesn’t have any tracking seal. Yet, he is
still aware of my location… in other words, it is something else…”
A flicker flashed swiftly in Xiao Yan’s eyes. Soon after, he waved his
hand and the four silver-colored scrolls appeared in his hand. His gaze
stared intently at the scrolls before gritting his teeth and tossing them
violently. The four scrolls immediately shot out in four different
directions, transforming into four silver lights as they did so.
“Old bastard, I want to see just how you will give chase now!”
