Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-995
Xiao Yan ceased hiding after seeing that he had been discovered. He
revealed himself, swept his gaze over the black-clothed man, and said,
“I am only passing by. There is no need to be anxious.”
The eyes of the black-clothed man coldly studied Xiao Yan. The other
party’s age seemed to be a little younger than him. However, based on
his sharp senses honed from having fought with others for many years, the
man could vaguely sense a slight dangerous feeling from Xiao Yan. His
heart was slightly startled. Although he clearly knew that those who
could arrive at this place at such a time definitely had some skills,
there were not many who could cause him to feel a little danger.
“I am Tang Ying from the Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion. You seem a little
unfamiliar. May I know which faction do you belong to or which clan do
you come from?” The black-clothed young man cupped his hands to Xiao
Yan as he inquired. He had heard about a little of the experts from the
younger generation within the Central Plains. However, this was indeed
the first time whom he had seen the person in front of him. Therefore, he
had asked in a more detailed fashion. It was right to ask a little more
when one roamed the world. The worst were those people who do not know
their limits and think that their father is the strongest when they are
nothing. Fortunately, this Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion Tang Ying was not
such a person. Otherwise, he might well end up being finished in this
place. That would be a pity to his half a lifetime of training and the
great expectations from his faction.
“Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion?” Xiao Yan felt startled in his heart
when he heard this name. It was unexpected that this person was someone
from the Ten Thousand Sword Pavilion. Moreover, the name Tang Ying was
one that he had heard of when he had been outside of the mountain range.
He was also a young, talented person who was comparable to Miss Feng from
the Wing Lightning Pavilion.
Xiao Yan hesitated for a moment before cupping his hands together and
replying, “Xiao Yan.”
A shock expression appeared on Tang Ying’s cold face when he heard this
name. He looked at Xiao Yan and said, “The Xiao Yan who has recently
had a fiery hot conflict with the Wind Lightning Pavilion?”
Xiao Yan smiled and mentioned casually, “It is merely a little
Tang Ying’s eyes involuntarily changed a little when he heard direct
acknowledgement from Xiao Yan. He was naturally aware of the conflict
between Xiao Yan and the Wind Lightning Pavilion during this period of
time. Even if his ability to break through the Nine Heavenly Lightning
Prison Formation placed by the three Elders was really due to him
borrowing the strength of others as the rumors had said, it was still
quite outstanding. Looking at it this way, there was another strong
opponent in the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool competition this time around
in addition to the people from the other three pavilions.
“A small conflict would not be able to draw out an old demon like Fei
Tian.” Tang Ying also did not seem like a talkative person. After
randomly saying some words, he did not wish to stay any longer. He said,
“Now is not the time to chat. Hopefully, I will be able to meet you at
the Heaven Mountain Stage. At that time, we might be able to work
Tang Ying did not wait for Xiao Yan’s reply after saying such words.
His figure moved and he swiftly entered the dense fog. He disappeared
within the blink of an eye.
Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head upon seeing that this fellow was
walking so quickly. These fellows seemed to possess a cautious mind. Xiao
Yan wanted to walk together with a person who knew the way, but the other
party seemed to be unwilling to contribute his resources to be shared.
However, it made sense when Xiao Yan thought about it. If there was one
additional person who reached the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool, there would
be an additional competitor. Who would want to find an opponent for
themselves for no reason…
“But what is this Heaven Mountain Stage that this fellow mentioned?
Ugh, this place is really foreign to me and all the information is indeed
hidden…” Xiao Yan frowned. He let out a soft sigh as his toes pressed
on a tree branch. His body was just like a large bird that plunged down.
Finally, he also charged into the dense fog.
Xiao Yan also lost the ease that he had felt earlier in the subsequent
journey because the strength of the Magical Beasts around him was
gradually growing stronger. Moreover, quite a number of Magical Beasts
were quite troublesome to deal with. Even though Xiao Yan relied on his
Spiritual Perception, he was still unable to successfully escape all of
them. Naturally, he had no choice but to fight. Hence, his speed was
However, Xiao Yan had no other choice. He did not have a path and it was
impossible for him to come to this place without relying on the flow of
energy to act as a signboard. The Heaven Eye Mountain Range was
incomparably vast. This, along with the lingering fog, made it appear
just like a maze.
The number of people around decreased the deeper Xiao Yan headed into the
mountain range. Xiao Yan had only met two others after Tang Ying. These
two people were quite strong with the both of them being at the Dou Huang
class. They were engaged in an intense battle with a rank 6 Magical Beast
when Xiao Yan discovered them. However, it was clear that these two
people’s perception was not as sharp as Tang Ying. Hence, they did not
discover Xiao Yan’s trail. All they did was roughly observe their
surroundings before quietly leaving.
Time also swiftly flowed by while Xiao Yan was charging ahead. Following
the change in the weather, the visibility within the forest was gradually
reduced. In the end, one could not even see one’s five fingers.
Following the arrival of night, the Magical Beast within the Heaven Eye
Mountain Range seemed to have become more activity. Numerous beast roars
repeatedly sound before reverberating across the mountain range.
This kind of environment was extremely unsuitable for traveling. It was
likely that even Miss Feng, Tang Ying, and the others who possessed a map
would stop traveling at this time. An entire day of traveling and
fighting with Magical Beasts would have exhausted them. If they did not
take the opportunity to quickly recuperate, it was likely that they would
have difficulty enduring the rest of the way to the Heaven Mountain Blood
Xiao Yan also hesitated in the face of this kind of terrible environment
to travel. However, after musing for a moment, he clenched his teeth. He
only rested for a moment before beginning to travel.
Xiao Yan was clearly aware that he had used a trick by relying on sensing
the flow of the energy. However, this would definitely widen the gap
between him and those like Tang Ying. Ever since he had met Tang Ying
during the day, Xiao Yan was unable to discover Tang Ying’s figure
regardless of how quickly Xiao Yan traveled. It was likely that he was
much further ahead…
Hence, if Xiao Yan truly wish to catch up to those fellows, he needed to
travel during the night. This might be quite dangerous, but it was
fortunate that by relying on his Spiritual Perception, Xiao Yan could try
his best to reduce the level of danger…
Xiao Yan’s feet violently stomped on a tree branch. The powerful and
fierce force caused the large tree to violently tremble. His figure had
also transformed into a blurry black shadow, swiftly shuttling through
this dark forest.
A figure suddenly flashed within the dark forest where one could not even
see one’s fingers. Immediately, a palm was violently imprinted on the
body of a Magical Beast hidden to the side. The force surged out and
shook the beast until it heavily collided against a tree trunk. It had
lost its life before it had the time to let out a roar.
A human figure gently landed on a tree branch amid the darkness. He let
out a rough breath and a Moonlight Stone was lifted. Warm light was
emitted, and was immediately reflected by the surrounding fog. However,
Xiao Yan’s young face was revealed with the help of the light.
The night journey was much harder than Xiao Yan had expected. Quite a
number of powerful and cunning Magical Beasts were hidden in the
darkness. They were just like hunters waiting for their prey to deliver
themselves to them. If Xiao Yan did not have the help of his Spiritual
Perception, it was likely that at least over ten injuries would have
appeared on his body. The danger of the Heaven Eye Mountain Range had
exceeded his expectations.
Xiao Yan took out a medicinal pill and stuffed it in his mouth as his
gaze glanced at the the corpse of the Magical Beast a short distance
away. He quickly sat crossed-legged. Traveling through the night had
exhausted him. Additionally, fighting with those troublesome Magical
Beast along the way had used up quite a bit of his strength.
Xiao Yan only slowly opened his eyes after resting for nearly half an
hour. He once again sensed the energy flow in the mountain range, and
there was a little joy in his eyes. The feeling of the flow was becoming
increasingly obvious. Clearly, Xiao Yan was getting closer to that
“I should put in more effort. Hopefully, I will be able to catch up to
those fellows before morning arrives…”
Xiao Yan licked his mouth and quietly laughed. His body moved,
transforming into a black figure that once again entered the dark
Xiao Yan did not spend much time resting during the night. Most of it was
spent traveling. However, this bitter journey was not without effect.
There were a total of five to six people who were overtaken by Xiao Yan
during his journey. These fellows were involuntarily a little stunned
when they saw his human figure shuffling through the darkness. This
person… was a little too bold.
Xiao Yan was unconcerned about the shock in these people’s heart. He
was able to sense the light within the forest was gradually becoming much
brighter. Clearly, night was gradually withdrawing.
When the sky gradually brightened, the Magical Beasts, which were
unusually active at night, also gradually withdrew. The beast roars in
the mountain range had also weakened.
Xiao Yan landed gently on a gigantic tree. His hand grabbed at the empty
space in front of him. The powerful energy that was contained within the
fog caused his face to reveal his shock.
“The density of the energy in this place is incredible. No wonder it is
able to form a mysterious thing like the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool. It
is likely that this place is already in the deepest regions of the Heaven
Eye Mountain Range…” Xiao Yan softly muttered. He immediately braced
his attention. Looking at this, it seemed that he was about to arrive at
Xiao Yan parted his mouth. His face also involuntarily revealed a smile
that seemed to have placed a heavy burden down. He was just about to move
when his ear suddenly moved. The faint sound of blades colliding as well
as energy exploding was transmitted over from a spot not far to his left.
Xiao Yan’s gaze glanced toward his left before it was quickly
withdrawn. He had seen a lot of similar situations along the way. Xiao
Yan was not a saint and did not spend the effort to help each person he
passes. With a shake of his head, Xiao Yan moved his toes, and continued
However, the instant he was about to move, a moving lady’s cry
penetrated through the fog and was transmitted into Xiao Yan’s ears.
Immediately, his figure, which was about to flash away, completely
This voice was moving and wonderful. It was likely that its owner was a
beauty. Moreover, Xiao Yan was not unfamiliar with this voice. He even
felt that it had stirred a particularly deep memory!
