Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1021 - The Reverse Side That Disappeared

Not many of the ten Celestial Venerables of the celestial heavens knew that the eggshell was in Qin Mu's hands. After all, the day he stole the eggshell, he had fooled almost every Celestial Venerable except Celestial Venerable Yan.

The ten Celestial Venerables didn't know who stole Celestial Emperor's eggshell. However, they were very familiar with the abilities of Celestial Venerable Yan's white cat. The white cat had seen the man who impersonated Celestial Emperor to steal the eggshell and had the power to determine the identity of the man that was in Celestial Emperor's corporeal body.

As long as they monitored the white cat, they could track down Celestial Emperor's eggshell by following the clues.

In other words, Celestial Venerable Xiao and the rest weren't actually monitoring Qin Mu but Celestial Venerable Yan's white cat.

When the cat came to look for Qin Mu, he did so in secrecy, taking advantage of the cover of night. However, he had long fallen into the crosshairs of Celestial Venerable Xiao and the rest. When the white cat left hastily, it would naturally trigger the Celestial Venerables to fight over him.

Above the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage, Qin Mu watched the battle unfold in the sky. He frowned and muttered, “I should have given Celestial Emperor's eggshell to the white cat. Only the real eggshell will provoke the ten Celestial Venerables into completely falling out with each other. When the Celestial Venerables finish their battle, they will realize that the white cat doesn't have the eggshell. They will then begin to suspect me. With that, the relationship among them will return to a peaceful, balanced state.”

Divine King Lang Wo laughed and said, “Holy infant, you are wrong if you think this way.”

Qin Mu asked humbly, “What does Divine King Sister think?”

“After their battle over the cat, regardless of whether the white cat lives or dies, the infighting of the ten Celestial Venerables will never be quelled.”

Divine King Lang Wo said, “When information is transparent, they will suspect you. However, when information is opaque, they will suspect each other. Now, the white cat has changed hands several times between the four great Celestial Venerables. Within this period of time, there's a possibility that anyone could have already gotten their hands on Celestial Emperor's eggshell. As such, even though none of them have the eggshell, they will end up suspecting that the others have it. This is simply information chaos.”

Qin Mu blinked.

“When information is chaotic, one will only receive one-sided information. This will lead people to suspect each other.”

Divine King Lang Wo said unhurriedly, “Although the white cat of Celestial Venerable Yan is an expert of the Numinous Sky Realm, he's unable to see through the thing created by the holy infant's consciousness. He confidently thought that he had gained the treasure. When the Celestial Venerables are fighting over him, the thing created by the holy infant's consciousness will turn into nothingness. He will believe that it was taken away by the other Celestial Venerables. Even if he survives, he will be mired within the chaotic state of information. The holy infant conversely will be free of this and can peacefully watch this conflict from the sidelines.”

Qin Mu fell into deep thought as the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage galloped into the distance.

“Apart from the four Celestial Venerables, the rest of the Celestial Venerables will join in this scramble, causing information to get more chaotic. As to who Celestial Emperor's eggshell ends up with, that isn't important.”

Divine King Lang Wo looked outside the window and said, “The fifth Celestial Venerable has already made his move. After this battle, the cracks between the Celestial Venerables will be beyond repair.”

The sky was covered with darkness. It seemed that Celestial Venerable Xu had made his move.

Following this, the figure of the sixth Celestial Venerable appeared and joined the battle for the cat.

One of the Celestial Venerables managed to get ahold of the white cat, carrying him as he disappeared beyond the horizon. The other Celestial Venerables consecutively disappeared, seemingly pursuing that Celestial Venerable.

This was the battle where the Celestial Venerables officially fell out with each other!

Qin Mu retracted his gaze and said, “Is the Primordial Realm the ancestral court that Divine King Sister is looking for?”

Divine King Lang Wo also retracted her gaze. She shook her head and said, “No, Yuandu is the birthplace of Mother Earth, not the ancestral court of the masters of creation. In the ancient memory of the race of masters of creation, the ancestral court was more fertile, with abundant produce, talents, and treasures. However, due to the many tribulations that our race has been through, the information passed down is sparse.”

Qin Mu pondered for a while and said, “Could it be on the reverse side of the Primordial Realm? No one has ever been there, but it should be vast and expansive, not smaller than the Primordial Realm.”

Divine King Lang Wo asked, “Has holy infant ever been to the reverse side of the Primordial Realm?”

Qin Mu shook his head and laughed. “The furthest I've been in the Primordial Realm is the Ruins of End. What's on the reverse side of the Primordial Realm, I don't know. This Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage is pretty fast. Why not make a trip there to take a look?”

Divine King Lang Wo nodded and agreed.

Qin Mu immediately ordered the six heavenly dragons that were pulling the treasure carriage to gallop towards the East Sea.

The treasure carriage was as swift as wind and lightning, moving at unparalleled speed. It left a stroke of bright light in the sky as it charged across it. After more than ten days, Qin Mu looked outside and saw that there was no end to the sea. He couldn't help but be anxious.

The Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage was able to travel much faster than him. He would have taken six months to reach where they were today. However, they hadn't seen the end of the Primordial Realm. Instead, they saw many broken pieces of land on the surface of the sea.

‘We should be reaching the Ruins of End soon,' Qin Mu thought.

The treasure carriage continued forward and went past the Ruins of End. After flying for another ten or so days, Qin Mu looked into the distance. A vast piece of land had appeared ahead, seemingly stretching forever as it surrounded the sea. On it were many divine mountains, which looked extremely steep.

‘Could this be the end of the Primordial Realm?'

Qin Mu was delighted. The Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage flew over these mountains. The top of the mountains were covered with pure white snow. It was extremely frozen and devoid of life. After flying over the block of seemingly continuous snow mountains, Qin Mu looked down and saw the vast West Earth below.

Qin Mu was stunned. He looked back and saw that the ocean of the Primordial Realm was still flat and not spherical. But they crossed the great sea and arrived straight at West Earth!

This was almost impossible!

He used to fly beyond the skies of the Primordial Realm with Bai Qu'er. When he looked at the Primordial Realm from beyond the skies, it was basically a flat surface, not a planet.

In that case, when they headed out towards the East Sea, why did they end up at West Earth instead of reaching the end of the Primordial Realm?

“It seems like the reverse side of the Primordial Realm has been hidden by someone!”

Qin Mu became excited. “In order to hide the reverse side of the Primordial Realm, space would have to be folded. Specifically, the boundaries of the Primordial Realm would have to be completely folded! The difficulty of this act isn't beneath folding the Primordial Realm and sealing it up! Only the ten Celestial Venerables or the ancient Celestial Emperor at his prime would be able to do this! If so, why did they want to seal the reverse side of the Primordial Realm?”

Divine King Lang Wo looked at him with great curiosity. She saw Qin Mu leave the treasure carriage and fly above the snow mountains, trying to use his magnetism divine art to probe whether there was a seal.

After some time, Qin Mu released his magnetism divine art and shook his head. “There are no traces of a seal… Open!”

The eye at the heart of his brows opened up and swept around his surroundings, scrutinizing the void. After some time, the eye at the heart of his brows closed. Even his wondrous third eye was unable to detect any sealing of space in this area.

“Primordial Spirit Projection!”

Qin Mu's primordial spirit flew out and burrowed into the earth, heading as deep as it could.

Since he was unable to see any existence of the seal, he could use his primordial spirit to burrow deep into the earth. Who knows, perhaps he could reach the reverse side of the Primordial Realm!

After a long time, Qin Mu's primordial spirit suddenly flew up from the earth and looked around confusedly.

Divine King Lang Wo asked, “What did the holy infant see?”

Qin Mu retracted his primordial spirit and had an odd look on his face. “When I was burrowing my primordial spirit deep into the earth, I saw some races underground. They lived in the space beneath the ground, relying on light from the magma to survive. I continued to burrow deeper and traveled for countless miles, feeling like I was about to reach the reverse side of the Primordial Realm. However, when I broke out of the earth, I realized that I was back here. This Primordial Realm…”

The expression on his face became odder. “The Primordial Realm actually didn't have a reverse side!”

Divine King Lang Wo was also stunned. She removed the willow leaf at the heart of her brows, and her consciousness exploded, penetrating deep into the ground. After some time, her consciousness flew up from the earth.

Her consciousness also felt the same thing. When she had completely penetrated the earth and burst out of its surface, she realized that she had returned to the obverse side of the Primordial Realm!

If this was the result of sealing space, the seal had already surpassed their combined knowledge!

A seal like this would require the space of the entire Primordial Realm to be completely folded. Once sealed, this would be a world with only the obverse surface without the reverse side!

‘Maybe I can see the reverse side of the Primordial Realm from beyond the skies…'

Just as Qin Mu thought of this, he hesitated again. He and Bai Qu'er had flown out of the Primordial Realm and roamed outside it, yet they had never discovered the reverse side of the Primordial Realm.

When they tried to fly to the reverse side of the Primordial Realm, what they saw was the obverse side. At that time, the two only had eyes for each other and didn't notice this phenomenon.

Now that he recalled the scene, he felt it was strange and sensed a chill down his spine!

“Has holy infant ever been to the reverse side of the celestial heavens?” Divine King Lang Wo suddenly asked.

Qin Mu was stunned. He shook his head, seemingly in a daze.

Come to think of it, it was indeed strange. The celestial heavens looked as though it didn't have a reverse side.

Not only that, even Youdu, that piece of giant landmass underneath Earth Count's feet where the Jade Lock Pass was, no one knew what was on the reverse side!

The celestial heavens, Youdu, and the Primordial Realm, all of these were without a reverse side!

“Does the ancestral court have a reverse side?” Qin Mu suddenly asked.

Divine King Lang Wo shook her head and said, “I don't seem to have an impression of that. I'm considered one of the younger masters of creation, born in the Great Void before the time your people deem as the Dragon Han Era. However, Divine King Shu Jun is extremely ancient. Perhaps he might have the answers.”

Qin Mu sighed and ordered the six heavenly dragons to head towards the nearest Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge. He said, “Let's visit the Four Extreme Heavens. Maybe we can find traces of the ancestral court there.”

Divine King Lang Wo nodded.

The Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage rushed to the nearest Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge. Qin Mu used this bridge to return to the celestial heavens. From there, he could reach the East Pole of East Deity Qing Long through other Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridges. However, before that, he directed the carriage to the outside of the Southern Heavenly Gate, taking a detour below the celestial river to check if there was a reverse side to the celestial heavens.

He continued to see the Southern Heavenly Gate. There was no reverse side to the celestial heavens!

‘As expected. I believe the Heavenly Yin World won't have a reverse side either. Strange, where did the reverse sides of all these worlds go?'

Qin Mu was greatly puzzled but could only suppress his doubts as he ordered the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage to head towards the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge that would bring them to the East Pole.

Within the light of the bridge, as the carriage charged towards the East Pole, Qin Mu continued to ponder over this problem. He hadn't thought about this in the past, but now, the more he thought, the stranger he felt.

After an unknown period of time, the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage emerged from the sacrificial altar and gently came to a stop. They had finally reached the East Pole. The six heavenly dragons were very excited. One by one, they turned into gods, possessing humanoid bodies with the head of a dragon.

Qin Mu hesitated a while before ordering the dragon qilin and Yan'er to untie the six dragon gods. He then invited them into the carriage. “Yan'er, fasten up the dragon qilin and hurry towards the Green Dragon Celestial Palace.”

The dragon qilin complained incessantly but still ended up being fastened. He had no choice but to pull the carriage forward.

Qin Mu looked at the scenery outside the carriage and saw that this East Pole was unique on its own. In the sky, there were countless stars formed by thunderbolts, looking extremely bright and dazzling.

Not only that, but there was also lightning measuring tens of thousands of miles hanging in the sky. However, they didn't give off rumbles of thunder and were still and quiet. The land of the East Pole had many dragon-shaped creatures. It was like a habitat for the dragon race. They should be the descendants of East Deity Qing Long.

From time to time, they saw a giant dragon lying among the tall mountains, measuring over a thousand miles long. Its snores rumbled like thunder as it slept.

Many little dragons climbed onto the body of this giant dragon, bickering noisily. Some were breathing out fire, while some spouted jets of water. There were some who rode lightning into their companions.

There were also numerous little dragons who had climbed onto its beard. As the giant dragon breathed, its beard would be blown upwards by the ferocious streams of air. The little dragons on the beard shook violently within the streams of air and were very excited.

Some of these little dragons were blown away and were badly battered as they fell. They then sat on the ground, wailing loudly.

The giant dragon was awakened. It opened its huge eyes and yawned. In response, the little dragons frantically slipped off, running around for a place to hide.

That giant dragon was rather docile. It used its beard to pick up the wailing little dragons. After pacifying them, it fell into a deep sleep again.

With the dragon qilin pulling the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage, its speed was much slower. It was good that the Green Dragon Celestial Palace was extremely vast and wasn't far from where they were. It would only take a few days before they arrived there.

However, the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage was stopped by some divine dragons. They demanded to know why the descendant of dragons was pulling a carriage for humans.

These dragon gods were very unhappy. Qin Mu had no choice but to ask the dragon qilin to stop.

“Let me pull the carriage!” Yan'er excitedly said.

Qin Mu shook his head as he thought, ‘You are the daughter of East Deity Qing Long. If he knew you were pulling the carriage, he would kill me!'
