Chapter 863: A Big Battle Begins
Han Feng's cold cry filled with killing intent broke the stiff atmosphere of this region. The experts from the Demon Flame Valley and Black Emperor Sect unleashed their soul-stirring killing intent at this moment. Their gazes were dark as they glared at Xiao Yan's group. Moreover, both parties even took the opportunity to separate a portion of their experts to head off the experts from 'Xiao Gate' and the Jia Nan Academy who had appeared in the sky.
The experts from the Demon Flame Valley and the Black Emperor Sect that remained this time around were the core strength within their factions. Their individual strengths were all quite great. If one were to talk about the situation in this place, it appeared that they were a little stronger than 'Xiao Gate' and the Jia Nan Academy experts. Hence, despite having dispatched some experts to deal with Xiao Li's group, the number of experts who remained still far exceeded that of Xiao Yan's four people group. Moreover, all of their auras were great and drawn out. Clearly, they were the elites among the group.
Few words were exchanged when the group that had gone to block Xiao Li's group collided with the latter before both parties directly erupted into a chaotic battle. Powerful Dou Qi ripples that contained dark, cold killing intent created gorgeous energy fireworks low, deep explosive sounds in the sky.
A cold smile surfaced on the corner of Han Feng's mouth as he watched the intense battle that had erupted in the sky. His gaze was immediately turned to Xiao Yan's four man group as he faintly said, "This is the territory of the Black Emperor Sect. It does not benefit you by dragging things out. Therefore, you should hand over the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva. This way, I might still let all of you off."
"You are actually saying such words despite your character. Looks like you do not have much hope of swallowing us." Xiao Yan softly laughed. His gaze glanced at the experts from 'Xiao Gate' and the Jia Nan Academy who had been stopped, but his face did not appear overly worried. Han Feng and Mo Tian Xing had planned to gather their core strength to deal with the four of them. Hence, the people who had gone to stop Xiao Li's group were not very strong. This group not only did not gain the upper hand in this battle, but had faintly fallen into a disadvantage. It appeared that they would not be able to block for long.
Of course, Xiao Yan himself naturally did not place his hope on Xiao Li's group. The crucial part of this battle was still on the side of the four of them. Should any accident happen to them, the experts from 'Xiao Gate' and the Jia Nan Academy would not have the ability to turn the situation around.
The smile on the corner of Han Feng's mouth became denser in the face of Xiao Yan's soft laughter. He had a clear understanding of the latter's character, and knew that the other party would definitely not easily hand over the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva. He immediately became too lazy to exchange unnecessary words. After exchanging a brief glance with Mo Tian Xing, Han Feng nodded his head.
"Fang Yan, you will lead the second and third Elders to deal with Xiao Yan. With the combination of the three of you, it is likely that you will even be able to barely fight against a Dou Zong. This should not be a problem, right?" Han Feng turned his head and spoke to the red-haired First Elder Fang Yan with a deep voice.
Fang Yan smiled when he heard this. He nodded and said, "Mister, please be reassured that the old me will definitely snatch the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva."
"Do not be careless. This little fellow has some extremely powerful Dou Skills. Back then, I suffered great losses…" Han Feng frowned and reminded.
Fang Yan smiled once again and nodded. He had naturally heard quite a lot of rumors about Xiao Yan. The battle result of the latter in the 'Black-Corner Region' back then was something he had heard numerous times. Hence, his heart would naturally not possess much underestimation. However, if he were to join hands with two Demon Flame Valley Elders, he still had some confidence in dealing with Xiao Yan. After all, the strength of those two were close to the peak of the Dou Huang class. Moreover, they worked well together. With the three of them, the chances of victory against Xiao Yan, who was a mere four star Dou Huang, should be above sixty-percent.
"I and Elder Qi will deal with that purple-haired little girl." Mo Ya laughed behind Mo Tian Xing.
"Yes." Mo Tian Xing randomly nodded. He did not issue any reminders. If Mo Ya and Qi Shan joined hands, there would hardly be anyone who was a match for them in the Dou Huang class. It should not be much of a problem dealing with a little girl. Although he knew that this little, purple-haired girl was somewhat strange, strange did not necessarily mean strength…
"Let's attack, don't delay any longer…" Han Feng gently waved his hand, and spoke with a faint voice.
A cold, powerful aura suddenly surged out from Han Feng's body after his last words sounded. Under this trembling aura, one could see that some dark clouds had suddenly begun to gather in the clear sky. In an instant, the warm sunlight that scattered down from the sky was isolated.
Han Feng's gray robes flapped in the wild wind while a bright-redness gradually surged in his eyes. His dark gaze shot to Su Qian, "Old fellow, we have not met for a couple of years. Today, allow me to see if you are still like you were back then!"
Su Qian's expression did not change even a little as he sensed his aura being locked onto by Han Feng. His body moved and he slowly flew out. He immediately paused a short distance from Han Feng and faintly said, "It is unexpected that the Pill Emperor who shook the 'Black-Corner Region' back then has actually turned into this state that is neither human nor ghost. Although I do not know what method you have used in order to transform into your old appearance after occupying another person's body, the current you does not possess the same demeanor from when you were the Pill Emperor."
Su Qian's words caused Han Feng's expression to instantly turn dark and solemn. Becoming this state that was neither human nor ghost had been a thorn in his heart. He immediately clenched his teeth and replied in a savage manner, "You old fellow who will not die. The reason I ended up in this manner is all thanks to you people. As long as I, Han Feng am alive, I will not allow all of you to live in peace!"
Han Feng was basically roaring at the end. Ferocity and Savageness covered his face and a somewhat powerful illusory energy surged from his body in all directions. His body moved and in an instant, he appeared in front of Su Qian in a ghost-like manner. A hot wind carried a frightening explosive force as it ruthlessly smashed toward the latter's chest.
The air was distorted where Han Feng's palm wind passed. Even the invisible air was torn by it until an arc was formed just above Han Feng's fist.
Su Qian's expression changed when he sensed Han Feng's fist wind. His sleeves finally became as hard as metal. They carried an icy wind that heavily collided with Han Feng's fist.
A spiraling wind swept out and emitted a hissing sound in the sky when the fist and sleeve made contact. Han Feng and Su Qian took a couple of hurried steps back. Their bodies immediately flashed. Once again, they pounced violently on each other like fierce tigers that had descended the mountains and had become entangled. Waves of shocking force and energy explosions sounded.
A cold glint flashed across the eyes of First Elder Han Feng and the two Elders when they saw Su Qian and Han Feng descend into an intense battle. Immediately, their gazes turned to Xiao Yan and let out a cold laugh. The three people formed a triangular shape and slowly approached the latter.
The Little Fairy Doctor's eyes rotated upon seeing Fang Yan's action. However, before she could do anything, a human figure flashed in front of her. Mo Tian Xing smiled when he appeared. "Your opponent is me. Don't get distracted because of someone else.
The Little Fairy Doctor's eyes glanced indifferently at Mo Tian Xing, her delicate small mouth was lifted into a strange arc. Threads of grayish-purple fog quietly seeped out from her clothes…
Fang Yan and the two others had already surrounded Xiao Yan while Mo Tian Xing blocked the Little Fairy Doctor. When Fang Yan saw Xiao Yan's calm manner with his arms crossed over his chest, he involuntarily laughed, "I have long heard about the impressive manner of chief Xiao in the 'Black-Corner Region' back then. Meeting you now, I can say that heroes that appear are mostly young. However, the three of us old fellows shall offend you today."
Although Fang Yan's face was a friendly one, there was not the slightest smile in his eyes. Only a frigid feeling and a dense killing intent were present.
Xiao Yan merely glanced at Fang Yan randomly in the face of his words. He spread his arms as he stretched his lazy waist. He clenched his fist and an enormous Heavy Xuan Ruler flashed and appeared. Xiao Yan smiled and said, "You need not say such useless words. Simply relying on your mouth is not sufficient if you want to snatch the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva from me. Moreover…"
Xiao Yan's eyes suddenly became sharp as his Heavy Ruler quietly moved with him. It carried a hot pressurizing wind as it violently swung behind him without Xiao Yan turning his head.
A clear metallic sound exploded behind Xiao Yan. Immediately, a black figure took a couple of steps back before stabilizing himself. His hand that held a large blade trembled while his gaze looked at Xiao Yan's back with a solemn expression. This second Elder of the Demon Flame Valley had not expected Xiao Yan's reaction to be this strong.
"Moreover… show me your true ability. This kind of sneak attack tactic is useless against me. Your Demon Flame Valley doesn't really rely on this to survive in the 'Black-Corner Region', does it?" After forcing that Demon Flame Valley's Elder back with a random attack, Xiao Yan parted his mouth and smiled to the First Elder. He revealed his white teeth that caused one's heart to feel a chill.
"I have frequently heard that chief Xiao's razor tongue does not lose to his fighting strength. After meeting you, I see that you do live up to your reputation…" Fang Yan let out a mocking smile. Immediately, the smile on his face gradually turned dark and cold while he slowly said, "I heard that chief Xiao is in possession of a 'Heavenly Flame'. The old me really wishes to know if the man-made 'Heavenly Flame' that my Demon Flame Valley makes is able to compare with your 'Heavenly Flame'!"
Fang Yan suddenly cried out loud after his voice sounded. "Second brother, third brother!"
TL: Note that the brothers does not mean blood brothers but rather used because they are from the same sect
The second and third Elders from the Demon Flame Valley immediately responded when they heard Fang Yan's cry. Their bodies immediately withdrew a short distance. After which, their hand seals quickly moved. Three pale-grayish flames suddenly curled and rose from their bodies. Immediately, the flames began to respond to one another. A moment later, they escaped from their hosts and flew out. Finally, they agglomerated together at the middle of the three individuals…
Within a short half a minute after the three pale-grayish colors merged, a grayish-brown 'Heavenly Flame' slowly rose to the sky.
The temperature of this place suddenly rose following the appearance of the cluster of grayish-brown flame. Even the space around that flame began to show signs of some distortion. The temperature of this kind of flame seemed to be very close to the degree of a 'Heavenly Flame'.
Xiao Yan raised his head and studied the cluster of grayish-brown color in the flame. Surprise flashed across his eyes and he muttered with some interest, "Is this that so-called 'Flame Creation Skill'…"
Chapter 864: Life Transforming Flame
The grayish-brown flame remained suspended above Xiao Yan's head. It appeared like a grayish sun that repeatedly emitted a frighteningly high temperature that caused the air to distort. This kind of temperature was already very close to the Green Lotus Core Flame that Xiao Yan had obtained back then…
Of course, this flame was merely close to it. A 'Heavenly Flame' was a completely unique thing in this world. Nothing could replicate it. This point was something that Xiao Yan was clearly aware of in his heart. Although this so-called 'Flame Creation Skill' was mysterious, it was far from the level of being able to create a 'Heavenly Flame.' At its very best, it could only achieve something that was very close to that of a 'Heavenly Flame'. Always and forever… it would never be able to surpass the later!
Although Xiao Yan was thinking in this manner, Fang Yan and the two Elders from the Demon Flame Valley clearly did not think the same way. They were filled with a great confidence by this grayish-brown flame formed from the merger of Dou Qi from their bodies. During these years, the 'Fake Heavenly Flame' that they had formed had caused quite a number of opponents to perish in their hands. These people included some of the peak experts within the 'Black-Corner Region'.
The grayish-brown flame curled and slowly rose. It abruptly split into three clusters amid Feng Yan's cold laughter. After which, they flew out and entered the bodies of the three Elders.
The aura that spread from the surface of Fang Yan's group suddenly turned a lot wilder and more violent when the grayish-brown flame entered their bodies. Waves of hot pressurizing wind merged together and swept toward Xiao Yan like floodwaters.
Xiao Yan's clothes fluttered unceasingly as he stood within the torrent-like pressure. However, his expression did not change much. His gaze swept over the three of them before he suddenly laughed, "You three. Although you have merged and formed such a flame, doesn't it appear as though you have injured yourself before you even hurt another?"
Fang Yan coldly laughed when he heard Xiao Yan's laughter, "Chief Xiao really has sharp eyes. Each time we use the 'Flame Creation Skill' to merge and form this 'Life Transforming Flame', the interior of our bodies indeed ends up with quite a number of burns. However, it's not considered much if we are able to snatch the 'Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva…"
"So this kind of flame is named 'Life Transforming Flame' by all of you… the 'Flame Creation Skill' of the Demon Flame Valley is indeed unique. However, compared to a true 'Heavenly Flame', this 'Life Transforming Flame' of yours is still a little inferior." Xiao Yan slightly smiled. His hand slowly moved and formed seals in front of him before it suddenly stilled.
"Skyfire Three Mysterious Change!"
The cry sounded within Xiao Yan's heart as an emerald-colored flame streaked from his body like a volcano. It lingered over the surface of his body for a moment before it gradually withdrew into his body. Following the withdrawal of the flame, Xiao Yan's aura suddenly soared.
The actual strength of Xiao Yan was that of a four star Dou Huang. Adding this to his physical strength, which far exceeded those experts of his level, his Qi Method, and the increase in his strength from borrowing of the 'Sky Fire Three Mysterious Change', he was able to contend against someone at the peak of the Dou Huang class without using any Dou Skills. Of course, he was a little weaker when compared to Fang Yan, who was an expert with half a foot in the Dou Zong level.
"I have long heard that chief Xiao is in possession of a 'Heavenly Flame'. Please show it to us today and allow us three old fellows to widen our perspective. Now that we think about it, this 'Life Transforming Flame' of ours has never contended against a true 'Heavenly Flame'. Today, we will ask for advice from chief Xiao." Fang Yan coldly laughed. His face did not reveal the slightest surprise in the face of Xiao Yan's soaring aura. Clearly, they were already aware that Xiao Yan possessed a secret technique that could raise his strength.
The corner of Xiao Yan's mouth was slowly lifted into a sly arc when he heard this. If they really wished to fight three against one, he would honestly have to spend quite a bit of effort. However, these three old fellow did not choose to use Dou Qi to fight. Instead, they wanted to challenge Xiao Yan with a 'Heavenly Flame'. This was undoubtedly using their weak point to challenge another person's strong point. It was no different from seeking to make things difficult for themselves.
Xiao Yan gently flicked his finger and a cluster of flames was suspended in his hand. This cluster of flame was not an emerald-jade color. Instead, it was a pale-green one. It was not the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame, but the first 'Heavenly Flame' of Xiao Yan that he had not used for a long time, the Green Lotus Core Flame…
This 'Heavenly Flame' was the first flame that Xiao Yan possessed. He was extremely familiar with controlling it. The flame was little different from the moving clouds and flowing water under his control. There was not the slightest unfamiliar feeling to it.
Xiao Yan gaze drifted after he had displayed the Green Lotus Core Flame. At this moment, Su Qian and the Little Fairy Doctor were each being delayed by Han Feng and Mo Tian Xing. Both of them had descended into an intense battle. On the other side, Mo Ya and Qi Shan had gradually rose into the air to head to Zi Yan with ill intent. Clearly, they planned to join hands and subdue Zi Yan…
Xiao Yan's gaze swept over Mo Ya and Qi Shan, causing his eyes narrowed. A sharp cold glint flashed in them. He had never expected these two bastards to be this unscrupulous to actually bully a little girl with numbers.
Zi Yan threw her gaze over after having seemed to have sensed Xiao Yan's gaze. Both pair of eyes entangled with each other before the former saucily smiled. A clear voice was transmitted into Xiao Yan's ears, "Relax, I can deal with these two fellows. Just remain relaxed and deal with those three old fellows who will not die…"
Xiao Yan was slightly startled upon hearing Zi Yan's voice. Seeing that the latter did not reveal an overly worried look, Xiao Yan felt much more relaxed. Zi Yan's original form was extremely mysterious. Moreover, her background also did not seem to be simple. She also possessed a never-ending number of tactics. Although she had only entered the Dou Huang class for a short period of time, her fighting strength was quite great. Even though Mo Ya and Qi Shan had joined hands, it would not be a simple matter to finish off Zi Yan within a short period of time…
"Chief Xiao, now is not the time to be distracted…" Fang Yan gave a dense laugh while Xiao Yan's gaze was looking in all directions. The seal in his hands moved immediately and the grayish-brown flame suddenly turned into a half-a-foot-large fire bird. The fire bird flapped its wings as its sharp fire beak attacked Xiao Yan in a lightning-like manner.
The grayish-brown fire bird flew through the sky. Within the blink of an eye, it appeared at a spot over ten feet from Xiao Yan. However, before it could flap its wings again, a pale-green fire net strangely extended out before wrapping around the grayish-brown fire bird.
Fang Yan's eyes turned slightly cold after the fire bird was wrapped. His hand seals moved and the fire bird swiftly expanded like a balloon that had been filled with air. The grayish flame repeatedly grilled the pale-green fire net, cooking the later until it became slightly illusionary…
Xiao Yan let out a soft exclamation as he sensed the change in the fire net that was formed from the Green Lotus Core Flame. An unusual glint flickered in his eyes. This 'Fake Heavenly Flame,' that Fang Yan's three men team had used Do Qi to create, did indeed possess some unique qualities. At the very least, it was much stronger than some 'Beast Flame'. However… a 'Fake Heavenly Flame' was ultimately fake regardless of how strong it was. In front of a genuine 'Heavenly Flame', it would still be extremely fragile!
A cold smile surfaced on the corner of Xiao Yan's mouth as he clenched his hand. The fire bird, that had swelled to the point where it was about to break the green fire net, abruptly emitted an intense fire glow. Suddenly, it began to shrink!
The tight shrinking of the fire net caused a 'Puchi' sound to appear. The enormous fire bird was strangled by the green fire net into flame spots. Finally, they surged out of the flame like a swarm of bees and entered Fang Yan's body from all directions.
A muffled snort sounded in Fang Yan's throat after the flame returned to his body. Clearly, he was slightly injured during the flame collision earlier.
Xiao Yan was once again surprised by the 'Life Transforming Flame' ability to split itself apart to dodge the fire net lock. Disbelief surged in his heart. "If I capture this so-called 'Life Transforming Flame' and use 'Flame Mantra' to swallow it… I wonder if it would enable the 'Flame Mantra' to evolve a little?"
This 'Life Transformation Flame' that Fang Yan's three men group had displayed could be said to be the strongest type of flame among all the non-Heavenly Flames fire that Xiao Yan had seen. As long as it was a flame, 'Flame Mantra' would be able to swallow and refine it. This was just like the 'Purple Flame' that Xiao Yan had refined back then… Of course, with the current class of the 'Flame Mantra'. Swallowing any ordinary beast flame would no longer be useful. However. This 'Life Transforming Flame' was a little different. There might be some benefits if he were to capture it…
This 'Life Transforming Flame' was formed from the gathering of all the Dou Qi that belonged in Fang Yan and the other two Elders. If he captured it, the strength of Fang Yan and the other two would definitely be reduced. No one knew just how much more time they would need in order to return to this level. The dense smile on the corner of Xiao Yan's mouth had unknowingly turned even denser when he thought until this point.
"Since all of you wish to play with fire, I shall teach all of you what is called burning oneself when playing with fire!" Xiao Yan muttered in his heart. A flame was shapeless and without substance. It was naturally extremely difficult for an ordinary person to capture it. However, this was not too difficult for Xiao Yan who possessed two types of 'Heavenly Flames'…
"Second brother, third brother!" Fang Yan, who had suffered a hidden disadvantage, revealed a slightly dark and solemn expression when this thought was lingering in Xiao Yan's heart. The former cried in a sharp voice, "Star Fire Phoenix!"
The two Demon Flame Valley's Elders were slightly startled when they heard this sharp cry by Fang Yan. They exchanged glances and immediately clenched their teeth. The seals on their hands changed and a dense grayish-brown flame suddenly surged from their bodies in all directions. They immediately entwined with each other in the sky. When Fang Yan completely merged the 'Life Transforming Flame' within his body, an unusually intense energy ripple swiftly spread from the grayish-brown flame…
The grayish-brown flame repeatedly churned like a cloud layer. A moment later, a clear bird cry suddenly carried a hot wind from the grayish-brown flame. Fire clouds rippled and an enormous gray-colored fire bird, over a hundred feet in size, slowly agglomerated within the grayish-brown flame…
"It is not easy to be able to agglomerate the flame into such a shape…" Surprise also flashed across Xiao Yan eyes as he observed the enormous divine bird in the sky made out of flames. An unusual smile surged onto his face as a soft mutter quietly sounded.
"This star phoenix should have been formed from the fire that was agglomerated within these three people's bodies… since this is the case, I shall unceremoniously accept all of them!"
Chapter 865: Capturing
An enormous grayish-brown fire bird flapped its wings as it floated in the azure sky. Hot waves radiated from its body, causing the space in the sky to become distorted. The surrounding space would emit a slight ripple each time this so-called 'Star Fire Phoenix' flapped its wings. Hot, wild wind whizzed around this place, causing one's head to be filled with perspiration as though one was in a desert…
The faces of Fang Yan's group had clearly turned much paler after this enormous grayish-brown fire bird appeared. Moreover, their auras swiftly became sluggish. Clearly, they had already consumed most of their strength in order to agglomerate the form of this 'Star Fire Phoenix,' that possessed a great amount of destructive strength.
Although Fang Yan's face was pale, the viciousness between his brows became denser. He laughed at Xiao Yan in the middle in a strange manner, "Chief Xiao. How is this 'Star Fire Phoenix of ours? Can it be compared with your 'Heavenly Flame'?"
Xiao Yan's gaze glanced at the old face covered with a vicious hatred. The corner of his mouth was curled slightly as he nonchalantly asked, "Is this your ultimate killing move?"
The corner of First Elder Fang Yan's eyes twitched when he heard the relaxed tone of Xiao Yan. The ferocious smile on the corner of his mouth widened. "Perhaps chief Xiao will change your statement after you sense the strength of this 'Star Fire Phoenix' of mine…"
First Elder Fang Yan's expression swiftly turned dark after his voice sounded. A cold cry was emitted from his mouth as the seal formed by his hands changed.
Following the change of the seal formed by his hands, the enormous grayish-brown fire phoenix in the sky suddenly raised its head and let out a sharp cry. A hot substance-like sound wave came sweeping over, blowing over the forest below until the trees rose and fell indefinitely in a wave-like manner.
The grayish-brown fire phoenix flapped its wings viciously after its cry sounded. Immediately, a 'suo suo' sound appeared. The densely packed grayish fire wings immediately shot out from the body of the fire phoenix and rushed at Xiao Yan from all directions.
The fire feathers' sharp wind tore through the air and reverberated throughout the sky. The hot temperature was like many small rocks that had erupted from a volcano, possessing both heat as well as a great destructive strength.
The fire feathers that came from all directions were swiftly magnified in Xiao Yan's dark-black eyes. However, when they were around twenty feet from Xiao Yan, a deep-green flame suddenly appeared in his dark-black pupils…
A circular deep-green flame cover suddenly appeared in a strange manner when the fire feathers that fell from all over the sky were around twenty feet from Xiao Yan's body. The grayish-brown flames that spread around all of the fire feathers, that had shot into this circular flame cover, immediately seemed to have met ice water as they were swiftly extinguished. Following the extinguishment of the flames, the feather Dou Qi that it had formed quietly scattered. Finally, they turned into nothing.
Fire feathers came pouring down, like a storm, into the flame barrier. Within the flame barrier, Xiao Yan slowly placed his hands behind him as his gaze calmly observed the enormous grayish-brown fire phoenix in the sky. This fire phoenix, that had basically been agglomerated from most of the Dou Qi within the bodies of Fang Yan and the other two Elders, did indeed emit frighteningly hot temperature. A temperature of such an extent was extremely close to the Green Lotus Core Flame. However… no matter how close it was, it was ultimately not a genuine 'Heavenly Flame'!
Most 'Heavenly Flames' formed in nature over a countless number of years of pressure, accumulation, and evolution. They would eventually evolve into a 'Heavenly Flame' that possessed a destructive strength. This destructive, wild, violent character was accumulated over a long period of time. Although it might not be completely impossible for something created from nothing to contend with a 'Heavenly Flame,' it was impossible to do so with the strength of Fang Yan's group.
Having lost its destructive, wild, violent character, even the strongest flame would forever be unable to become a 'Heavenly Flame'… how could a lion that had lost its fierceness be able to force another beast to submit?
Fang Yan and the two other's aim was to raise this so-called 'Life Transforming Flame' into the degree of a 'Heavenly Flame.' However, they did not know that the truly frightening part of a 'Heavenly Flame' was not just its terrifying temperature, but its destructive property that destroyed everything was also truly horrifying!
Yet, they actually intended to use this kind of flame to attack Xiao Yan who possessed two genuine 'Heavenly Flames'. This was undoubtedly a whimsical and laughable thought.
The concentrated gray fire feathers in the sky were completely destroyed. When Fang Yan and the two others saw that Xiao Yan, who was covered by a flame barrier, was actually unhurt, a green color gradually climbed onto their faces.
"Your 'Life Transforming Flame' is only to such a degree… this really disappoints me." Xiao Yan raised his eyes gently as he stood within the flame cover. His eyes swept over Fang Yan and the other two before speaking in a faint voice.
Fang Yan's face was green with fury. A ferocious look soon surfaced. Without replying to Xiao Yan, his gaze turned to the other two Demon Flame Valley's Elders as he roared in a sinister voice, "Sacrificial Flame!"
The expressions of the other two Elders slightly changed when they heard this low roar from Fang Yan. They violently bit their tongues and a mouthful of fresh bright-red blood was immediately spat out. The blood that was spat out did not scatter. Instead, it agglomerated into a couple of blood droplets that rolled in front of him. The already weary auras of the two Elders once again weakened after a mouthful of fresh blood was spat out. Clearly, this mouthful of fresh blood was not ordinary blood. Instead, it was an essence blood that contained the purest Dou Qi within their bodies.
Fang Yan bit his tongue when he saw this. A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out. Finally, he controlled it with his finger and the two other clusters of fresh blood shot over. Finally, the three clusters of blood agglomerated together and formed a fist-sized deep-brown cluster of blood.
Fang Yan waved his sleeves and the cluster of liquid blood shot out. Finally, it landed in that enormous fire phoenix.
The Star Fire Phoenix's extended wings stiffened the moment the liquid blood entered its body. An unusual blood-red color seeped from within its body. The fire phoenix turned from its initial grayish-brown color to an unusual blood-red one.
A dense bloody stench slowly rose from the fire phoenix's body as its color changed. Finally, it dyed this sky until it became somewhat scarlet. Moreover, the blood-red fire phoenix's aura became a couple of times stronger than earlier. Perhaps it was because of the essence blood from Fang Yan and the three others, but this current Sky Fire Phoenix appeared to possess a vague intelligence…
Fang Yan's eyes were bright-red as he looked at the Sky Fire Phoenix whose appearance had transformed. A savage smile surfaced within his eyes. His finger suddenly pointed at Xiao Yan as he cried out loud.
The red-colored Sky Fire Phoenix's empty-hole-like eyes suddenly revealed a blood-red color after Fang Yan's voice sounded. A sharp eagle cry reverberated through the sky in a deafening manner. Immediately, its wings were abruptly withdrawn, and its enormous body was like a huge javelin as it wildly rotated. Finally, it emitted a xiu sound as it rushed forward…
The speed of the Sky Fire Phoenix was so quick that it was somewhat terrifying. It appeared to have torn space as it appeared around twenty feet from Xiao Yan. A dense blood-redness adhered on the Sky Fire Pheonix's sharp bird mouth, causing it to appear a little strange.
A solemness flashed across Xiao Yan's eyes when he sensed the speed of that Sky Fire Phoenix. This Demon Flame Valley did indeed have a couple of tactics. It was able to create a man-made flame that was this strong…
Xiao Yan's hand was also quick as this thought flashed through his heart. A seal was formed with his hands, and the flame barrier that covered his entire body shook. Immediately, an enormous green-colored fire net suddenly swelled by over a hundred feet. Finally, it stretched apart and wrapped around the Sky Fire Phoenix that had charged over.
The Sky Fire Phoenix had just been restrained when it began to struggle. The blood-colored flames on its body swiftly churned as it struggled against a great force. Its body repeatedly grilles the green-colored fire net. Moreover, due to the enormous charging force earlier, the sword-blade-like fire mouth of the fire phoenix still shot toward Xiao Yan despite the fire net stopping it.
Xiao Yan's eyes suddenly solidified as he let out a stern cry when the sharp fire mouth was swiftly expanded within his dark-black eyes.
The green-colored fire net's strong light once again erupted as his cry sounded. Immediately, it began to bind the fire phoenix while emitting waves of cracking sounds…
Xiao Yan let out a soft sigh from his mouth. He glanced at the sharp fire mouth that was less than a foot from his head and wiped away the cold sweat on his forehead. Immediately, he smiled at Feng Han before changing his hand seal and crying out loud, "Coagulate!"
The word had just sounded when the green-colored fire suddenly turned into something like a flamethrower that repeatedly spat out a deep-green flame. Moreover, this green flame caused the fire phoenix to roll as though it was suffering from an intense pain the moment the flame adhered to the latter's body. That strange blood flame seemed to have met its nemesis under the discharge of the green-colored flame. It actually began to show signs of being extinguished…
Xiao Yan gently exhaled. He watched as the surface of the fire phoenix's body weakened. His heart immediately moved and he used all his strength to maneuver the Green Lotus Core Flame within his body before finally spitting all of it at the fire phoenix.
The fire phoenix was like a wounded chicken under the erosion of the high temperature belonging to the Green Lotus Core Flame. It struggled repeatedly and an ear-piercing cry miserably sounded.
"Eldest, quickly withdraw the fire phoenix. This brat's 'Heavenly Flame' is really too frightening. The fire phoenix is unable to endure!"
An Elder from the Demon Flame Valley hurriedly cried out when he saw the change in the fire phoenix. The three of them had a connection with the fire phoenix. Hence, they were naturally aware of just what kind of extremely terrible condition it was in.
At this moment, a paleness mixed with Fang Yan's angry green face. At this moment, he finally understood that using a flame to deal with Xiao Yan seemed to be the wrong decision. The great power of a 'Heavenly Flame'… had far exceeded their expectations.
Fang Yan did not hesitate as this thought flashed in his heart. He let out a cry and the seal on his hands changed.
The blood-colored fire phoenix within the fire net slowly ceased its struggle after Fang Yan's cry sounded. It was about to separate into a countless number of flame light spots again like bees that had left their hives. Finally, they surged out from the gaps between the fire net in a densely packed manner.
"You are actually thinking of using the same technique twice? Today, I will definitely capture this 'Life Transforming Flame' of yours!"
Xiao Yan merely let out a cold smile when he saw this scene. He flicked his finger and the space where the gaps of the fire net were located began to twist. An invisible flame appeared and completely chased all of the fleeing blood-colored flame back in.
The green-colored fire net swiftly shrank after the blood-colored flame was chased back. Within a couple of blinks, the net had transformed into a fist-sized green-colored fire barrier. Inside of this fire barrier was a unique cluster of blood-colored flame that was sluggishly dancing. Its appearance was similar to a bird trapped in a cage…
The green-colored fire barrier was suspended over Xiao Yan's hand. His gaze swept over the cluster of blood-colored flame within it before his eyes slid to Fang Yan's group. He smiled slightly and softly said, "Thank you for your gift. Xiao Yan shall unceremoniously accept this valuable gift…"
