Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-988
A small silver stream flowed down from the top of a mountain within a
quiet forest thriving in the lush green mountain range. The silent
atmosphere caused the area around the small stream to be filled with a
However, this silence did not last for long before an enormous black
figure shot out of the forest. It landed on the ground, but continued to
rub across it, forming a long scar on the rock surface around the small
stream. Only then did it come to a slow stop. The large savage Magical
Beast, filled with a fierce aura, struggled a couple of times before
completely losing its life force. There was a charred black scar on its
The sudden activity caused some of the Magical beast around the small
stream to hurriedly withdraw in shock. This was especially the case after
they saw the Magical Beast that had collapsed on the ground. Their
intelligence mad them involuntarily withdraw at an even faster rate.
Whether it was a human or a Magical Beast, the one who could defeat the
Great Land Demon Bear, which was the strongest within a hundred kilometer
radius was definitely an extremely strong expert.
The faint sound of footsteps was transmitted through the forest after
these Magical Beasts ran away in fear. A moment later, a skinny human
figure slowly appeared.
The human figure paused outside of the forest, raised his head and looked
at the glaring sun in the sky. He immediately lowered his head, glanced
at the big fellow not far away, shook his head, and muttered, “Isn’t
it fine if you just guard your own territory? Yet, you wish to help that
foolish wolf act as a scout.”
The sun landed on that familiar young man’s face, causing the young man
to appear even more lively. This person was naturally Xiao Yan, who had
chosen to cross this mountain range on foot.
Xiao Yan had already walked for ten days through this mountain range.
During these ten days, there were quite a number of foolish Magical
Beasts who had died by his hands. The pouring of the fresh blood of many
Magical Beasts had vaguely caused Xiao Yan to emit a bloody fierce aura.
His hands had also become sharper than they had been in the past. At a
glance, he seemed to possess the dangerous feeling of a wild beast.
The vast mountain forest seemed to be a very good training location.
There were quite a number of powerful Magical Beasts within this mountain
range. Not only were there high rank Magical Beasts comparable to an
expert Dou Huang but Xiao Yan had even fought with a rank 7 Magical
Beast, equivalent to an elite Dou Zong, by chance because he had found a
rare medicinal ingredient. The Great Land Demon Bear had a strength
equivalent to an ordinary Dou Huang. The one Xiao Yan had killed earlier
was a scout of the Gray Wolf King, who was known as the overlord of this

If one were to measure the strength of the Gray Wolf King with the human
guage, he should be around the level of a two star Dou Zong. After
including the great agilities and instincts of a wild beast, the Gray
Wolf King would be comparable with a three star elite Dou Zong. In the
past, Xiao Yan would have difficulty fighting an opponent of this level
alone. However, with his current nine star Dou Huang strength and the
great effect of the Skyfire Three Mysterious Change, even that Gray Wolf
King had difficulty killing Xiao Yan within a short period of time.
Hence, Xiao Yan was able to successfully escape the two fights that broke
out with the Gray Wolf King during these four short days. Moreover, with
Xiao Yan’s overwhelmingly strong Spiritual Strength, he was able to
avoid the Gray Wolf King’s search. This had resulted in him having no
choice but to order the other Magical Beasts within this mountain range
to search for traces of Xiao Yan.
Of course, with the trump cards currently in Xiao Yan’s hand, he only
needed to take out the Earth Demon Puppet in order to kill this Gray Wolf
King. However, he did not do so. An opponent of this level was
coincidentally what he needed most. The strength of Chen Yun and the
three great Elders of the Wind Lightning Northern Pavilion had far
exceeded Xiao Yan. Hence, Xiao Yan required the use of other methods to
fight with them. Now, however, he only needed to rely on his own strength
to face the Gray Wolf King. Xiao Yan had been able to fight him and
successfully flee. This was the best training for him. Hence, he would
naturally not take out a killing move and kill it.
“I wonder if that fellow is jumping up and down after failing to find
me during these past two or three days?” Xiao Yan gloatingly laughed.
He turned around and appeared on the body of the Great Land Demon Bear.
He took out a dagger and inserted it into the beast’s body. After
which, he extracted a yellow Monster Core. A rank 6 Monster Core would
likely be useful when he refined pills in the future.
Xiao Yan came to the side of the small stream, washed the Monster Core,
and stored it into his Storage Ring. He looked at the somewhat miserable
figure that appeared on the lake’s surface and involuntarily shook his
head. This period of having camped outdoors made him look comparable to a
“I am becoming more and more familiar with the Three Thousand Lightning
Movement. However, I have yet to succeed in the formation of an avatar.
This damn Three Thousand Lightning Illusionary Body is indeed not easy to
master…” A jade-green flame flickered on Xiao Yan’s hand,
vaporizing all the water on it, while Xiao Yan softly spoke with a frown.
“There is still around twenty days or so until the start of the Heaven
Eye Mountain Range energy tide. According to my speed, I should be able
to leave this mountain range after ten days or so. At that time, I will
fly to the Heaven Eye Mountain Range. Whether I will be able to form an
avatar during this remaining time will depend on my luck…”
Xiao Yan sighed. He stood up, and was just about to turn around and leave
when he suddenly raised his eyebrows. He glanced toward the distant sky.
A large group of black figures was rushing over from that direction. One
could even vaguely smell a dense, fierce scent…
“They are quick to arrive this time around…”
Xiao Yan involuntarily smiled when he saw this. He stopped, crossed his
arms over his chest, and smiled as he watched the gradually approaching
“Brat, leave the Starchless Fruit. Otherwise, I will cut the flesh from
your body and eat it!” The black figure had yet to arrive when a
furious roar was transmitted over. The roar caused the Magical Beasts
within this section of the forest to shiver.
The black figure, gradually approaching, was an enormous flying Magical
Beast. Its enormous wings were spread. It carried a loud whistling wind
sound as it pressed down toward the forest below, causing the trees to
bend. A middle-aged man, with a naked upper body covered in numerous
wounds, stood proudly on the head of the Magical Beast. A pair of crimson
eyes were viciously staring at Xiao Yan beside the small stream.
There were many Magical Beast of different sizes behind the large man. At
a glance, all of them were quite strong. It seemed that this fellow had
called upon all the subordinates he could summon this time around.
“You are a commander who has occupied a mountain and proclaimed
yourself king. Why do you persistently chase after me because of a
Starchless Fruit? Isn’t that unbefitting of you?” Xiao Yan looked at
the large man with a naked upper body as he spoke. This fellow was the
overlord of this mountain range, the Gray Wolf King. His strength was
extremely high. He could rely on his own strength to transform into a
human. This was not an easy matter. It should be known that the
transformation of a Magical Beast was similar to the birth of a high tier
medicinal pill and a lightning tribulation would descend. If one could
endure it, one would successfully transform one’s body. If one failed
to endure it, it was likely that one would be killed by the lightning…
Of course, if one possessed a Body Transforming Pill, one would be able
to avoid this dangerous step. However, this Gray Wolf King was clearly
unable to find that high tier medicinal pill. After all, a Body
Transforming Pill was a tier 7 medicinal pill. It could be considered one
of the rarest medicinal pills within the Magical Beast world. It was
easier said than done to obtain it.
The Gray Wolf King swore after hearing Xiao Yan’s words. He leaped down
from the back of the flying beast and landed on the ground with a bang,
appearing just like an enormous tower. That great force caused the small
stream beside him to explode. Water droplets scattered in all directions.
“Hand it over to the old me. Otherwise, I will kill you today!”
The Gray Wolf King’s red eyes stared at Xiao Yan. Immediately, his feet
stomped on the ground. Enormous cracks spread under his feet. His body
also emitted a ‘swoosh’ sound as it rushed toward Xiao Yan. Sharp
knife-like claws at his fingertips viciously pierced toward Xiao Yan’s
throat. A couple of faint black scars were formed in the air where the
Xiao Yan merely smiled when he saw this. His footsteps moved and he
withdrew over a dozen steps as a reflex action. Three afterimages
appeared as he easily dodged the attack of the Gray Wolf King. The
training of the Three Thousand Lightning Movement had already been
ingrained in his bones. Each time he dodged, he would activate the Three
Thousand Lightning Movement to its limit.
“Little bastard, do you only know how to dodge?”
The Gray Wolf King furiously roared when his attack was dodged by Xiao
Yan. This was what caused him to feel dismay. His strength was clearly
far greater than Xiao Yan’s strength, but the other party was even more
slippery than a loach. He was unable to even touch the other party’s
Xiao Yan smiled when he saw the Gray Wolf King acting crazily. He was
just about to speak when his eyes suddenly congelated. Both of his eyes
suddenly turned to an afterimage in front of him.
Two of the three afterimages he had left behind swiftly disappeared.
However, this final one had maintained its stance. Xiao Yan could faintly
sense a Spiritual Strength spreading from its body.
Xiao Yan was stunned as he looked at this afterimage that had not
disappeared. He was dumbfounded. He had not controlled anything himself
earlier. Who would have imagined that he would actually… actually
agglomerate an avatar in such a baffling manner?
Xiao Yan finally recovered from his astonishment after a moment. A wild
joy surfaced in his eyes. His hand hurriedly beckoned, and the afterimage
transformed into an invisible light spot before entering Xiao Yan’s
brows. This was simply an avatar seed. However, this difficult creation
step had been accomplished. Subsequently, if one were to temper and
refine it, Xiao Yan’s Three Thousand Lightning Illusionary Body would
be able to smoothly agglomerate in the future!
“Ha ha, thank you very much… on account of you lending me a hand, I
shall allow you to continue being this mountain’s overlord in a secure
manner.” Xiao Yan laughed loudly to the Gray Wolf King. He shook his
shoulders and a pair of crystal bone wings swiftly spread.
The Gray Wolf King let out a furious roar immediately upon seeing Xiao
Yan preparing to flee. He had just taken a step forward when his body
suddenly stiffened. His eyes looked as though he had seen a ghost. He
stared at the crystal bone wings on Xiao Yan’s back. A moment later, he
screamed in horror, “Heaven Phoenix Demon Wings?”
