Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-994
“Xiao Yan? He is the Xiao Yan who killed Chen Yun?”
Numerous stunned gazes were looking at the young man a short distance
away within a forest that was permeated by fog. The name Xiao Yan had
been spread wildly during this period of time. It was rare that someone
from the younger generation could force an expert like Fei Tian to
personally act. Moreover, the thing that was even more shocking was that
this person was able to escape from Fei Tian’s hands. This really
stunned many people. There was hardly anyone within the northern region
of the Central Plains who did not know just how terrifying that old demon
Fei Tian was.
Xiao Yan eyebrows merely knit together in the face of the many gazes that
contained various emotions from around him. His arm shook and the
colorful satin in his hand was shot back before it was withdrawn into the
sleeves of the colorfully dressed lady.
“You can walk your own path and I will take my own route. If you
don’t disturb me, I will also not attack you…” Xiao Yan stared at
the colorfully dressed lady as he slowly spoke. He could sense that the
strength of this lady was quite great. Moreover, had been picked as the
most probable candidate for the position of the next Wind Lightning
Pavilion’s leader. Xiao Yan definitely did not believe that she did not
possess any skill. Currently, Xiao Yan’s aim was to become one of those
ten names. Thus, he did not want to engage in a direct conflict with her.
Naturally, he did not wish to waste his efforts right from the start.
“What an arrogant tone… I will also not attack you now. I will wait
for you at the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool. If you have the qualifications
to reach that place, we will settle the grudge that you and the Wind
Lightning Pavilion possess.” The colorful-clothed lady’s pretty eyes
looked at Xiao Yan as she softly laughed. Her laughter contained a
“Of course, if you have been defeated before you even reach the Heaven
Mountain Blood Pool, it will only mean that all the things that you have
accomplished are due to you borrowing the strength of others.”
The colorful-clothed lady pressed her toes on the ground after her voice
sounded. Her body was like a dancing butterfly. She pulled back with a
flash before swiftly disappearing into the thick fog.
Xiao Yan laughed coldly in his heart when he saw the colorful-clothed
lady withdraw. His gaze swept all around him as he slowly walked in
another direction. A moment later, he disappeared within the fog in front
of many gazes.
“It’s a pity that they did not actually fight. I wonder just who
would be stronger if the two of them were to really exchange blows?”
The surrounding crowd inevitably became disappointed after watching these
two people take separate routes, leaving upon meeting each other.
“Hee hee, they are not fighting now because they wish to preserve some
strength. There are many powerful Magical Beast within the Heaven Eye
Mountain Range. The surroundings of the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool are
extremely concentrated with them. If one wishes to charge through this
Magical Beast crowd and arrive at the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool without
having some ability, it is likely that the person is only courting death
for no reason. However, these two people will definitely engage in a
fierce fight once they arrive at their destination.”
Everyone began to head their own way after the private conversations
persisted for a short while. Some of them were alone while others were in
groups. After which, all of them entered the mountain range. Due to the
interior of the mountain range possessing a dense energy fog, the effect
obtained from possessing a map was also limited. Some people could only
rely on their luck to search, testing to see if their luck was any good.
The quiet mountain range had gradually become lively as everyone spread
out. An unknown number of people had entered the Heaven Eye Mountain
Range this time around. This large number of people had caused this
mountain range, which was renowned for its many Magical Beasts, to become
filled with energy. Of course, there was a hidden danger amid this
However, danger and reward coexisted together. There were many Magical
Beasts in the Heaven Eye Mountain Range. Adding this onto the unusually
dense energy, these mountains did not lack natural treasures. If one was
lucky enough to find something, it was likely that one would have gained
a lot even without being one of the ten people to enter the Heaven
Mountain Blood Pool.
On the whole, the Heaven Eye Mountain Range might be filled with danger,
but it could also be considered a treasure mountain. As long as one
possessed sufficient luck and ability, it was not difficult to return
with many rewards…
Xiao Yan’s figure flashed and appeared within the forest that was
permeated by fog. His gaze swept around him as he frowned. This fog was
blended with energy that could not be expelled. It greatly hindered
one’s sight. A person was just like a headless housefly within it,
repeatedly running around in a random manner.
“The map is completely useless. The only thing that I know is that the
Heaven Mountain Blood Pool is located in the deep regions of the Heaven
Eye Mountain Range. However, how long will it take to reach the deep
region if I continue to randomly roam around?” Xiao Yan paused his
footsteps and mused for a moment. His body suddenly leaped and appeared
on the top of a tree branch. His eyes swept around before he swiftly
leaped up. A moment later, he finally appeared on the top of a tree.
Xiao Yan stood at the treetop and swept his eyes around only to be
stunned to realize that the fog on it was even denser. His gaze was
unable to see anything even if it was less than ten meters from him. Xiao
Yan raised his head and looked up. He involuntarily pulled his neck in
upon doing so because an enormous colorful energy tide was spreading out
from above. A wave of energy pressure that could not be resisted spread
out, causing one to feel afraid.
“I cannot use old mister Yao’s strength within the Heaven Eye
Mountain Range. Otherwise, the effect would be unpredictable. Hence, I
can only rely on myself…” Xiao Yan softly sighed. He knew that the
Miss Feng was definitely clearly aware of the route to reach the Heaven
Mountain Blood Pool. With the ability of the Wind Lightning Pavilion,
they should be quite familiar with this Heaven Eye Mountain Range. The
problem of the fog should have long been expected by them. Hence, she was
able to rush to the destination without any fear and save the time wasted
on other routes.
Since the Wind Lightning Pavilion had a clear route, the other factions
like the Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion and some of the weaker factions
would likely have also made preparations. Thus, it was likely that their
numbers would exceed ten. Xiao Yan was quite far behind them on just this
“It is good to possess a faction behind one… the Heaven Mountain
Blood Pool will appear one day after the energy tide appears. In other
words, I must reach that place within one day. Otherwise, I will not have
the blessing of enjoying the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool…”
Xiao Yan bitterly laughed. He mused for a moment before he suddenly sat
down with his legs crossed. His Spiritual Perception swiftly spread from
between his brows…
Although Xiao Yan was unaware of the exact location of the Heaven
Mountain Blood Pool, it was likely that the formation of this unique
blood pool, in the middle of the mountain range, would require an
unusually great amount of pure energy. In other words, the Heaven
Mountain Blood Pool would be the region with the most powerful energy in
the entire mountain range. Xiao Yan’s spiritual perception could use
this as a medium to search. As long as he locked onto the area with the
densest energy and go all out to rush there, it was likely that nothing
would go wrong.
Following the swift spread of Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Perception, the
traces of energy ripple within a five kilometer radius was clearly
reflected into Xiao Yan’s mind. The direction in which the energy flow
was also gradually grasped by Xiao Yan…
“The north huh…”
Xiao Yan’s tightly shut eyes were suddenly opened around half an hour
later. His gaze suddenly turned to the north. From his perception, this
mountain range’s energy seemed to be faintly gathering in that
Xiao Yan leaped forward after locking onto a position. He came down from
the tree and landed gently onto the ground, shocking a person who was
coincidentally present in this spot. As the person hurriedly stepped
back, the weapon in their hand emitted a ‘clang’ sound as it was
Xiao Yan ignored this fellow who appeared extremely frightening. His toes
pressed on the ground and his body transformed into a black figure which
charged into the dense fog in a lightning-like manner. After which, he
rapidly traveled through the forest, hurrying over to the energy
gathering spot located by his Spiritual Perception at his fastest speed.
Xiao Yan discovered quite a number of people being pestered by Magical
Beast along the way. They were engaged in intense fights. However, he did
not stop. His figure shifted past in a ghost-like manner. With the help
of his outstanding Spiritual Perception, he was able to sense if there
was any hidden Magical Beasts within the dense fog one step ahead of the
others. Hence, he had avoided being blocked by Magical Beast during his
travel. His advancement speed was so quick that it was frightening.
Xiao Yan used this fierce and swift speed to advance for an hour before
he gradually slowed down a little. Following his gradual entrance into
the deep regions of the mountain range, the strength of the Magical
Beasts hidden within the dense fog also seemed stronger. He would
definitely attract the Magical Beasts over if he continued to fearlessly
advance. Although Xiao Yan was not afraid, he really did not wish to end
up slowing down because of them.
Xiao Yan’s toes pressed on a tree branch and his figure agily rushed
forward. His eyes carefully swept all around him, and he did not create
even the slightest sound when he landed on the ground, appearing just
like a ghost.
Xiao Yan’s figure once again leaped onto an enormous tree. He was just
about to charge forward when his heart moved. His gaze looked toward a
spot not far in front of him. A human and a beast were fighting at that
When he saw the large Magical Beast, Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes a little.
He was a little startled in his heart as he said, “It is actually a
rank 6 Magical Beast?”
Xiao Yan’s gaze paused on the Magical Beast. After which, it turned to
the human figure facing the beast. Anyone who could reach this place at
this time was definitely not an ordinary person. The person in front of
him was likely not an exception.
The human figure was wearing light-black clothes and looked quite young.
His face was cold and he was carrying a large blue sword on his back.
There was a sharp sword aura vaguely being emitted from it. From the
looks of the scars around him, it was likely that this person had already
exchanged blows with this rank 6 Magical Beast. However, his clothes
still remained clean. Clearly, he was not at a disadvantage.
The black-clothed man’s face moved slightly when Xiao Yan arrived at
this place. His hand slowly grabbed the sword hilt on his back and his
footsteps gently shifted. Immediately, he rushed forward.
Seeing the actions of the black-clothed man, the rank 6 Magical Beast
emitted a roar. It moved its four legs and viciously pounced toward him.
The man and beast crossed each other in a lightning-like manner. A sword
glow was emitted in a fleeting manner.
The black-clothed man stood straight and the longsword in his hand was
slowly inserted into the scabbard behind him. The large Magical Beast had
collapsed on the ground.
“What a fast sword movement…”
Xiao Yan’s eyes narrowed slightly. With his eyesight, he was only able
to vaguely see the black-clothed young man drawing the sword. This person
was quite powerful.
“Have you seen enough?”
The black-clothed man slowly raised his head while Xiao Yan was stunned
in his heart. After which, his gaze shot toward Xiao Yan as he asked with
a faint voice.
