Chapter 1034: Absorption
The jade-green flame fiercely burned. A high temperature spread from it, causing the surrounding fierce wind to become much hotter as a result. However, no one paid any attention to this. The eyes of Feng zun-zhe and the others were merely staring at the interior of the flame. There were three droplets of red-green blood rotating inside.
"It is indeed the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood. Moreover, the color is so dense. It is likely that it can only be refined from the blood of some Heaven Demon Phoenix who have reached the Dou Zun class…" Mu Qing Luan's pretty face changed by the side when she saw the three droplets of green-red blood. At the same time, she also let out an exclamation. She was a member of the Mythical Bird Tribe. Although her tribe could not be compared with the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe, she did have a great understanding of their tribe. Hence, she was able to see just how precious these three droplets of green-red blood were at a glance.
Even the expression of Feng zun-zhe changed when he heard Mu Qing Luan's words. A Dou Zun class Heaven Demon Phoenix? Such a strength would definitely be ranked among those old demons, who would not die, even within the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe. How was it possible for this Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood to land in Xiao Yan's hands?
"However, it is fortunate that it was not discovered earlier. Otherwise, it would likely have been really troublesome. A Dou Zun class Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood is sufficient to get the Heaven Demon Phoenix to mobilize their forces. The both of you must not leak this matter to anyone." Feng zun-zhe's expression had become much more solemn. His eyes revealed a sternness.
Mu Qing Luan and Lin Yan nodded when they heard these words. They clearly understood just what kind of trouble it would bring Xiao Yan if this matter were to spread.
"The Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood has already been forced out by Xiao Yan. Why is it that his expression…" Lin Yan's eyes swept over Xiao Yan's face as he suddenly asked with some hesitation.
Feng zun-zhe and Mu Qing Luan also threw their eyes toward Xiao Yan when they heard this. They did indeed see that his face was blood-red in color. His body's temperature was also frighteningly hot. There was a bitter expression between his brows. It was as though he was resisting something.
There is more than just these three drops of Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood. The remainder should still be in his body. However… it seems that he cannot force them out." Feng zun-zhe sharp eyes swiftly sensed the problem, and he explained it in a deep voice.
"What should we do?" Lin Yan became anxiously as he hurriedly asked.
"The interior of the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood contains the strength of the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe's bloodline. It is impossible for an ordinary person to absorb it. After all, the constitution of a human is far inferior to that of a Heaven Demon Phoenix. If one forcefully absorbs it, it is likely that one might end up bursting apart. The only thing that we can do now is to help force out the remaining Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood within his body." Mu Qing Luan spoke with a bitter smile.
"There is no way to force it out. Earlier, Xiao Yan hid the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood inside the Heavenly Flame to avoid Feng Qing Er's search. However, the Heavenly Flame's temperature is extremely high. It has caused some of the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood's energy to spread. Now, it has basically spread all over his body. It is already impossible to completely force it out." Feng zun-zhe shook his head as he revealed another problem.
Mu Qing Luan spread her hands when she heard this. She was helpless if this was the case.
"Let's take a look at the situation first…"
Feng zun-zhe voiced his thoughts. If he were to randomly intervene in the matter now, it was likely that he would only add to the problem. Hence, it was best to first see if Xiao Yan could rely on his own strength to force this Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood out of his body.
While the three of them were conversing, Xiao Yan's skin was becoming boiling hot. Its color had also turned blood-red. At a glance, he appeared just like a frightening blood person.
Of course, Xiao Yan's outer appearance was not the only one affected. At this moment, the interior of Xiao Yan's body was in complete chaos. Green-red energy was just like wild, galloping horses that crazily rocketed through the interior of his body. The crazy violence that was contained within it caused the interior of Xiao Yan's body to repeatedly emit waves after waves of intense throbbing pain.
Xiao Yan's mind tried its best to suppress the uprising within his body as he quietly cursed. Originally, he had refined five droplets of green red blood from the Magical Beast dried corpse. After using one droplet when refining a medicinal pill in the Inner Academy, he only had four droplets remaining. He had forced out three droplets earlier. In other words, there was still one droplet of green-red blood remaining in his body. The main culprit of turning his body into such chaos was this drop of damn green-red blood.
The green-red blood had completely split apart when it was in the Heavenly Flame earlier. After which, it transformed into numerous violent energies that spread apart and randomly charged about within Xiao Yan's body.
"I don't believe that I am unable to subdue you after having managed to refine you!"
Xiao Yan viciously grit his teeth as he studied the chaotic situation within his body. A thought passed through his mind and Spiritual Strength surged from between his brows. After which, it wildly invaded his body and forcefully chased the scattered energy in a certain direction.
Simply waiting for the wild energy to scatter more would only cause his internal injuries to become more and more serious. Hence, he needed to gather the scattered energy together and completely finish them off in a clean sweep!
The resistance of the green-red, violent energy was extremely high. They were just like wild horses that could not be subdued, requiring Xiao Yan to exhaust a great amount of Spiritual Strength in order to drag them away. Thus, the exhaustion of his Spiritual Strength was unusually great. However, it was fortunate that Xiao Yan had successfully advanced to the Dou Zong class. Otherwise, it was likely difficult for him to complete such a difficult task.
Spiritual Strength randomly moved through every part of his body without tiring, doing its best to chase down the green-red, wild energy. Despite the great exhaustion of his Spiritual Strength, it was quite effective. In less than ten minutes, the green-red energy, that had scattered throughout his body, had been gathered together, transforming into a palm-sized green-red energy cluster.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief within his heart as he observed this cluster of violent energy, that had been gathered together. He immediately sighed in relief. A thought passed through his mind and the jade-green flame surged out, turning into a fire cauldron. It coincidentally wrapped the cluster of energy inside it.
The fire cauldron had just wrapped the energy cluster when a frighteningly high temperature seeped from it!
The green-red energy seemed to have sensed some danger when the high temperature rose. It scattered apart, transforming into a countless number of clusters that shot in all directions. However, the fire cauldron at this moment had already become extremely tough under the control of Xiao Yan's mind. Hence, the green-red energies were reflected back when they knocked into the fire cauldron, becoming a chaotic cluster.
When these wild and violent energies turned to chaos, the fire cauldron's high temperature swiftly rose. The frighteningly high temperature gradually caused the tiny green-red energy seeds to gradually turn into nothingness. Finally, it transformed into a wisp of green-red fog and slowly drifted out of the fire cauldron.
The green-red fog no longer showed the violent and untamable properties in it after being refined by the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame. Instead, it gently drifted out and merged into his bones, veins, muscles, cells…
Following the merger of this green-red fog and his body, Xiao Yan was surprised to find that everything in his body seemed to have been given a strength enhancer at this moment. Their strength and toughness was slowly raising…
"This Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood is indeed a great spiritual medicine for raising the strength of one's body. However, it is likely that the effect would have been even better if it had been used to refine a medicinal pill…"
Xiao Yan let out a quiet sigh within his heart as he sensed the change in his body. Immediately, he felt somewhat regretful.
Of course, this kind of regret naturally disappeared immediately after it appeared. The current Xiao Yan also understood that it was indeed not easy to absorb such Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood. If he didn't possess the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame, it was likely that the interior of his body would have turned into a mess because of the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood.
Due to the repeated refinement of the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame, green-red fog repeatedly seeped out of the top of the fire cauldron. This momentum showed signs of it gradually becoming denser.
When this green-red fog repeatedly penetrated into Xiao Yan's body, the feeling of his physical body becoming stronger also became more and more obvious. Xiao Yan had an illusion that if he had sufficient Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood, his body would likely become as strong as that of a Heaven Demon Phoenix. Of course, the precondition to this was that he was able to endure the continuous strengthening. The Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood was really a little too violent for a human. If he was careless, his body might explode because of his strength being raised too much…
Xiao Yan suddenly trembled when he thought of this. He instantly recovered from the joy of having his physical body being strengthened. This kind of green-red fog did indeed possess an exceptionally great effect when it came to strengthening one's body. However… if one were to absorb too much of it, it would likely become a disaster.
Xiao Yan's mind entered the fire cauldron. At this moment, there were still two-thirds left of the green-red energy cluster. Just one-third made Xiao Yan feel like his body wouldn't be able to endure. If the remainder was completely absorbed by his body, it was likely that his body would really explode…
Xiao Yan's heart felt a chill when he thought of this. However, if he did not completely refine this Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood in this situation, it would randomly dart around his body. The harm it would cause would also be quite great, yet if he continued the refinement, his body would be unable to endure such wild, violent energy at his current strength…
At this moment, Xiao Yan had undoubtedly entered a dilemma.
While Xiao Yan was hesitating, the refinement within the fire cauldron did not come to a stop. Wave after wave of green-red fog curled and rose up, covering every inch of Xiao Yan's body in that fog.
Xiao Yan mournfully discovered that his body was gradually beginning to be unable to absorb any more while the green-red fog permeated it. However, the green-red fog could not be bothered with all this. It still continuously invaded Xiao Yan's body.
Xiao Yan's body gradually began to show signs of a swelling pain following the repeated entry of the green-red fog.
Xiao Yan softly sighed as he sensed the vague pain that appeared in his swollen muscles.
"Dammit, I have overdone it this time around…"
Chapter 1035: Bone Wing's Transformation
On the enormous fierce wind eagle, Lin Yan watched Xiao Yan's body as the blood-red color gradually diminished. He let out a sigh of relief. It seemed that he was gradually absorbing the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood within his body…
"This fellow is actually absorbing the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood?" Mu Qing Luan by the side was startled when she saw this scene. She immediately voiced her surprise.
Feng zun-zhe slightly nodded. Although there was no change in Xiao Yan's aura, he was still able to sense his strength increasing by relying on the sharp senses of of an elite Dou Zun.
"The Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood does possess a great effect in raising the strength of a person's body. However, once the body is unable to endure that kind of strengthening, it is likely that it will end up exploding." Mu Qing Luan knit her eyebrows as she softly said.
Lin Yan was startled when he heard this. Immediately, the expression in his eyes changed while he was looking at Xiao Yan. He hurriedly said, "It seems that something is not quite right…"
Feng zun-zhe and Mu Qing Luan quickly turned their eyes to Xiao Yan when they heard his voice. They could see that Xiao Yan's body was vaguely showing signs of swelling…
"It is really the case of what I said coming true…" Mu Qing Luan bitterly laughed when she saw this scene. She sighed, "Xiao Yan's body is unable to absorb so much Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood. This is the forewarning of the explosion of one's body…"
Feng zun-zhe's expression changed slightly. He stepped forward and appeared beside Xiao Yan's body. His hand was extended but it was hurriedly stopped by Mu Qing Luan by the side. "Currently, the interior of Xiao Yan's body is in a full state. If any other energy is inserted, it is likely that his body will immediately burst apart."
Feng zun-zhe intently frowned. He said in a deep voice, "If this continues, he will sooner or later end up dying from his body bursting apart because of that Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood."
Mu Qing Luan bitterly laughed as she said, "No one knows if he has any other tactics. If we were to randomly intervene, it is likely that we will make matters worse."
Feng zun-zhe hesitated for a moment upon hearing this. All he could do, however, was to withdraw his hand. He looked at Xiao Yan's swelling body, clenched his teeth, and said, "If he still doesn't have any solution after some time, I can only intervene."
"Only the people from the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribes possess the ability to completely absorb the bloodline strength within the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood. If they absorb it, they will be able to cause every part of their body or their bloodline to become even purer. However, if a human were to absorb it, the process will be filled with danger. I don't know if I should say that this fellow is too bold or ignorant…" Mu Qing Luan nodded. Her eyes looked at Xiao Yan, who was continuing to swell, as she muttered to herself.
The fierce wind eagle flapped its enormous wings, circling in the sky. The surrounding wild gale separated a great distance away, causing a quiet space to appear on the back of the enormous eagle.
Feng zun-zhe and the two others were all focused on Xiao Yan's swelling body. In less than ten breath's time, Xiao Yan had actually transformed into a large fat person. The flesh all over his body appeared just like a balloon with air being blown in it as it bulged out. While Xiao Yan's body was swelling in this manner, a painful expression had also covered his face. However, he had clenched his teeth and endured it.
Feng zun-zhe's eyes stared intently at Xiao Yan's swollen body. His fingers had already slowly curled involuntarily under his sleeves. Wave after wave of spiraling wind, that emitted some sharpness, appeared.
Xiao Yan's body had swelled to his limit within a couple of breath's time. The small blood vessels on his skin had started to burst apart. Fresh blood seeped out, making him look like a terrifying blood person. Feng zun-zhe was unable to endure it any longer when he saw Xiao Yan in this state. He inhaled a deep breath of air and slowly raised his hand. A majestic natural energy agglomerated with lightning-like speed. He intended to force out the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood from within Xiao Yan's body!
Mu Qing Luan could only sigh softly when she saw that Feng zun-zhe was about to intervene. Thus, it was likely that Xiao Yan would suffer an extremely serious injury even if his life could be saved. Moreover, the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood could also be considered to have been completely wasted…
The gathering of the energy became swifter and fiercer. An instant later, it was suddenly formed. Feng zun-zhe's face was as deep as water. His sleeve was waved and was just about to transfer that energy into Xiao Yan's body when he suddenly opened his eyes!
Feng zun-zhe was startled when he saw Xiao Yan open his eyes. The majestic energy in his hand also stopped as a result.
Xiao Yan, who had opened his eyes, swiftly formed some seals with his hands. Soon after, he let out a deep cry. A muffled sound could be heard by Feng zun-zhe and the two others as a pair of ten-foot-large gem-like bone wings swiftly spread apart.
Xiao Yan's body had strangely ceased swelling when the bone wings appeared. Wave after wave of green-red energy, visible to the naked eye, followed Xiao Yan's skin and swiftly flowed. They poured into the bone wings on Xiao Yan's back in a lightning-like manner!
A strange scene appeared as this increasing amount of green-red energy poured into the bone wings. One could see that the crystal clear, jade-like bone wings began to slowly extend. Moreover, numerous unusual green-red lines spread through the empty bone wings. At a glance, they appeared like countless of tiny blood vessels…
The green-red energy stretched the size of this pair of bone wings by over two times. Moreover, the dense green-red lines also caused the bone wings to possess a mysterious feeling. They were gently flapped as a low, deep sonic boom immediately resounded over the place. A wild wind also spread out.
With the bone wings absorbing the overbearing, violent, green-red energy, Xiao Yan's swelling body swiftly shrank. Within a short couple of breath's time, he had returned to his normal size. Although his body was still covered with fresh blood, the painful expression on his face had gradually disappeared.
Feng zun-zhe and the two others were a little stunned when they saw the enormous bone wings on Xiao Yan's back, especially when they heard the sound made from its flapping. The shock on their faces became even denser.
"This is… Heaven Demon Phoenix Wings?"
Mu Qing Luan's eyes stared at the pair of bone wings on Xiao Yan's back. A moment later, she finally inhaled a breath of cold air as she uttered those words.
"Yes, you should be right. Back then, I also saw some of the old demons from the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe using them. Although this pair of wings belonging to Xiao Yan does not have any phoenix feathers, the scent on it is similar to that of the Heaven Demon Phoenix wings." Feng zun-zhe slowly nodded. Even with his mental strength, his face involuntarily revealed some shock upon seeing that Xiao Yan possessed a pair of Heaven Demon Phoenix wings.
"This fellow… don't tell me he killed a member of the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe? Otherwise, how is it possible for him to possess the Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood and this pair of Heaven Demon Phoenix wings? If the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe becomes aware of this, it is likely that they will dispatch experts to kill Xiao Yan." Mu Qing Luan gradually withdrew the shock on her face as she muttered. Only now did she feel that this disciple of her teacher's old friend, who had suddenly appeared, was very mysterious.
Feng zun-zhe slightly nodded his head. He also found things to be a little troublesome. This little fellow was indeed quite bold. Even Yao Chen and him would have thought twice before touching someone from the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe. It was unexpected that this little fellow had not only removed the essence blood but had even created these bone wings.
Xiao Yan's tightly shut eyes twitched while the two of them were speaking. Soon after, Xiao Yan slowly opened them and saw Feng zun-zhe's group who were looking at him. He bitterly laughed, "I'm sorry. I did not expect things to end up like this…"
"Are you alright?" Feng zun-zhe shook his head and asked.
Xiao Yan stood up and clenched his fist. A torrent-like overwhelming strength immediately surged through his limbs and bones. This kind of comfortable feeling of caused Xiao Yan to involuntarily let out a howl to the sky!
The howl rumbled. There was a vague dragon roar and phoenix cry within it that shook one's heart!
"Phoenix cry? Dragon roar?"
Feng zun-zhe's heart immediately trembled when he heard this howl. His eyes were somewhat strange as he looked to Xiao Yan. He said, "Phoenix cry and dragon roar. These are top sonic waves in the world. If used together with a sonic wave Dou Technique, their strength will be extremely great. Unexpectedly, you possess both together…"
Xiao Yan was similarly startled. That little dragon's roar had originated from the Yin-Yang Mysterious Dragon Pill back then. As for this phoenix cry… could it be because of that Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood?
"You should hide these Heaven Demon Phoenix wings first. Try your best to avoid using them in the future. Otherwise, should the Heaven Demon Phoenix tribe discover them, you will likely be faced with great trouble…" Feng zun-zhe reminded.
Xiao Yan's eyes rolled when he heard this. He was startled when he saw that the bone wings had transformed. The bone wings were gently flapped, and he could see wild wind surging from them. A low sonic boom was formed under the wings. It was just like the noise from a cannon that caused one to feel shaken.
"The bone wings have become so much stronger. I think that their speed should have increased quite a lot. Looks like the remaining Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood has been absorbed by them…" joy surged in Xiao Yan's heart as he sensed the strength of the current bone wings. If he were to use the Three Thousand Lightning Movement in addition, it was likely that even Fei Tian would no longer be able to catch up with him.
A thought passed through Xiao Yan's mind, returning the bone wings to his body. After which, he took out a cloth to wipe off the blood on his body. When he did so, he discovered that his skin radiated a faint green color. When his finger pressed his skin with great force, he felt a flexibility that was just like the skin of an animal. This caused Xiao Yan's face to become stunned.
"This skin of mine could likely even be compared with some Magical Beasts. This Ancient Phoenix Essence Blood is indeed good stuff for refining one's flesh… if I take a little more, will it turn me into a Magical Beast?"
Xiao Yan mocked. Although there was no increase in the Dou Qi, his physical body was much stronger than before. In other words, his endurance had also become much greater. If he were to fight head-on when battling others in the future, he would likely be able to gain a great advantage.
Feng zun-zhe sighed in relief after seeing that Xiao Yan found nothing amiss during his detailed check of his body. Immediately, his eyes stared at Xiao Yan as he slowly said, "Little fellow, since you are fine, can you tell me where your teacher is?"
Xiao Yan's fist suddenly tightened when he heard this question from Feng zun-zhe.
