“A parent's love knows no bounds. Hence, North Deity Xuan Wu, being the parents of Prince You Ming, suppressed him for 600,000 years.”
In the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage, Qin Mu was talking to Divine King Lang Wo. “They went to great lengths to protect their son. Son of Heaven Yin's plot against North Deity Xuan Wu was one with great perseverance, lasting 400,000 years. However, he failed and ended up taking a small loss. When I saw him determinedly releasing the worms to eat gourd vines, I knew that his purpose wasn't the Five Thunder Pots.”
Divine King Lang Wo's gaze flickered. She said, “I have gotten some news from the god city near the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu. The ten Celestial Venerables are going to start fighting among themselves soon. I heard this from the gods and devils that are guarding the North Pole. This is terrifying.”
Qin Mu was greatly roused. He asked, “The ten Celestial Venerables are going to completely fall out with each other?”
“It's over Celestial Emperor's eggshell. Originally, there were six Celestial Venerables fighting over it, and they hadn't completely fallen out with each other. However, Celestial Venerable Hao attacked and didn't hide his identity. He wanted the six Celestial Venerables to hand over the eggshell. Naturally, they refused to admit that it was in their hands. Hence, Celestial Venerable Hao wanted to search their bodies.”
Although Divine King Lang Wo spoke in a casual tone, Qin Mu could feel the dangers in her words.
Celestial Venerable Hao wanted to search their bodies?
Celestial Venerable Xiao, Heavenly Lady Qiang, and Heavenly Lady Yan were distinguished Celestial Venerables. How could they endure such an insult? Moreover, there were women among them. More importantly, they were the women of Celestial Emperor!
“The six Celestial Venerables were unable to tolerate Celestial Venerable Hao's request. However, Celestial Venerable Huo arrived and supported him. Celestial Venerable Hao's power was the strongest. Together with the support of Celestial Venerable Huo, the other Celestial Venerables weren't their match.”
Divine King Lang Wo said, “At the moment, there's an undercurrent surging in the celestial heavens, an extremely dangerous one. The ten Celestial Venerables plan to recall the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yus that are currently suppressing the various heavens to the celestial heavens to prepare for battle. Also, the heavens under these Celestial Venerables are mobilizing their troops. Many great armies of gods and devils were sent from the various great heavens towards the celestial heavens. Even the ten guards of the celestial heavens were mobilized!”
“The ten guards of the celestial heavens were mobilized?”
Qin Mu's heart turned cold. He stood up and paced around, pondering as he said, “Wrong, wrong, the ten guards of the celestial heavens, the Left and Right Feathered Forest, Dragon Martial, Divine Stratagem, Divine Awe, and Divine Martial, these are under the command of Celestial Emperor. The ten Celestial Venerables couldn't possibly be able to mobilize them. They could only be mobilized under the orders of Celestial Emperor. Although these ten Celestial Venerables could control Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, they would impede each other and be unable to mobilize the ten guards. There is something strange going on…”
Divine King Lang Wo blinked her eyes and watched the way he paced around. She asked, “What do you mean?”
“The internal fighting among the ten Celestial Venerables is only on the surface. The real objective is to draw the snake out of its lair.”
Qin Mu stopped walking as he abruptly struck his fist into his palm, creating a loud slap. He solemnly said, “If the ten guards of the celestial heavens weren't mobilized, there would be a chance that this conflict is only between the ten Celestial Venerables. But with the ten guards, that possibility is now gone!”
The ten guards of the celestial heavens were the ten strongest armies of the celestial heavens. They each had their own specialties and were under the jurisdiction of Celestial Emperor. They only recognized the commander's seal and not the commander, only obeying Celestial Emperor and not the Celestial Venerables.
Early on, during the Dragon Han Era, with an army of Feathered Forest Guards consisting of 10,000 gods and devils, Wei Suifeng destroyed Dragon Count Country, the country that trapped Celestial Empress in the Ruins of End for countless years!
Although there were plenty of fishy things going on in this matter, and although the power of Celestial Empress wasn't as strong as she would later become, the battle power of the ten guards of the celestial heavens was still evident.
To mobilize the ten guards, the ancient Celestial Emperor was personally required to give the order. In order to do that, the ten Celestial Venerables who were controlling Celestial Emperor's corporeal body needed to come to an agreement, or else there would be chaos.
If there was infighting among the ten Celestial Venerables, then the ten guards of the celestial heavens couldn't be mobilized!
Now, the ten guards of the celestial heavens were mobilized. Hence, this could only be a situation where they were trying to draw the snake out of its lair!
“This is a plot against the ancient gods! The rifts between the ten Celestial Venerables and their infighting, these are only on the surface. In reality, they want to draw the snake out of its lair!”
Qin Mu frowned and said resolutely, “Whichever ancient gods are unable to see this and think that the ten Celestial Venerables are breaking up, their deaths are certain.”
Suddenly, the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage shook gently. They had arrived at the West Pole.
Right at this moment, the voice of the heavenly dragons traveled from the outside. “Celestial Venerable, we are unable to advance forward! The gods and devils that are guarding here have sealed the road!”
Qin Mu walked out of the treasure carriage and looked ahead. He saw an army of gods and devils that numbered in the tens of thousands circling the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu, building a celestial fort.
The towering fort walls presented a splendid sight, connecting heaven and earth. There were many metals in the West Pole, and this celestial fort was made with pure metal. Its height was astonishing, taller than the mountains of the West Pole. Its thickness was also shocking!
Countless gods and devils were slitting their wrists, scattering their divine blood from their wounds onto the metallic fort walls. There were gods and devils proficient in talismans, who were holding giant brushes as big as beams and flying along the walls as they drew talismans on them using the divine blood as ink!
The various talismans were imprinted on the walls, either giving out golden or red light.
Within the celestial fort, the furnaces of the various battleships were lit. Giant bronze beasts spewed flames measuring over 10 miles long downwards, sending these battleships slowly into the air.
On the battleships, hundreds of gods and devils were moving around quickly, putting on their divine armor and arming themselves with their divine weapons as they formed various great formations under the orders of their commanders.
In the fort, giant beasts were pulling humongous cloud chariots, moving towards the fort walls with all their effort. These chariots were fully filled with divine weapons.
On both sides of the street, there were countless apothecaries activating pill furnaces so big that it would require ten men to lift up one. Below the furnaces were divine dragons spewing out fire. The apothecaries of the celestial heavens each executed their techniques, furiously refining the pills. There was a continuous stream of medicine boys bringing various herbs to the furnaces.
When the spirit pills were ready, they were sent to the fort walls, for healing the wounded during battle.
Qin Mu looked at this from a distance. The soldiers that the celestial heavens had in the West Pole numbered in the millions. At this moment, the war machine had already started moving. The construction speed of the celestial fort was shocking.
Even though the celestial heavens were corrupted, this level of mobilization speed had left him extremely terrified!
The speed of the war machine of the celestial heavens was simply too fast!
Facing the celestial fort was West Pole's White Tiger Celestial Palace. At this moment, the White Tiger Celestial Palace had already started moving and was advancing towards there.
Clearly, West Deity White Tiger already received news about the infighting of the ten Celestial Venerables. He planned to capture the most frightening weapon in the world, divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu, before it was recalled back to the celestial heavens!
'Not every ancient god will realize that this is a plot against them. Quite the opposite, as they have been waiting for an opportunity after being suppressed for so long. Now the opportunity suddenly presented itself, giving them the impression that their time has come.'
Qin Mu composed himself and thought, 'North Deity Xuan Wu saw through this, but West Deity White Tiger, East Deity Qing Long, South and Deity Zhu Que may not! If she dares to attack, her death is certain!'
In the West Pole, within the White Tiger Celestial Palace, the great army under West Deity had already been mobilized, flying out from the celestial palace.
In the West Pole, there were plenty of metals, jade, and strange beasts. Hence, the gods and devils of the West Pole were riding these strange beasts. The divine weapons in their hands were refined from divine metals and beautiful jade.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
These strange beasts stepped on all sorts of colored clouds, galloping furiously in the sky. The cultivations of these giant beasts were extremely strong, conjuring all sorts of strange meteorological phenomena. Within these strange phenomena were the divine weapons of the West Pole's gods and devils, giving off an aura that could suppress heaven and earth as they charged directly towards the celestial fort!
“It's difficult for West Deity White Tiger to escape death.” Divine King Lang Wo seemed pleased as she said that to Qin Mu.
Qin Mu glanced at her, then retracted his gaze. He said solemnly, “Fatty Dragon, Yan'er, let the heavenly dragons reveal their true forms and pull the treasure carriage towards the celestial fort!”
The dragon qilin hurriedly passed the order. The six heavenly dragons swiftly let out long and majestic cries as their bodies continuously expanded, transforming into golden dragons that measured a thousand miles long. Their feet stepped on clouds as they galloped as quick as lightning, pulling the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage towards the fort.
The treasure carriage also expanded ceaselessly, becoming heavier and being surrounded by wisps of clouds and propitious vapors. The canopy transformed into a piece of heaven, covering the space above the treasure carriage with swirling galaxies and dazzling starlight.
Below, a great flood filled the air as it surged forth, transforming into a celestial river. It flowed straight ahead with no end in sight. There were also Xuan Wu tortoises and snakes emerging below the carriage, advancing forward with it.
Behind the carriage, vermillion birds soared high, boosting the carriage's speed tremendously!
The vermillion birds spread their wings as the flame waves behind the carriage glowed and glittered. The flame waves were 3,000 feet long, looking extremely gorgeous.
In the treasure carriage, the white tiger pattern flickered, transforming into two white tigers that became Qin Mu's throne. Qin Mu had a huge corporeal body, like a god that could suppress heaven and earth. His palms pressed upon the heads of the white tigers, his face revealing a dignified expression.
The gods guarding the celestial fort stopped what they were doing as they raised their heads in a daze, looking at this incomparably luxurious treasure carriage that was traveling across the sky.
“May I ask which god this is?” The god general guarding the fort hurriedly dashed into the sky and threw himself in front of the carriage, bowing as he asked.
The face of Qin Mu was shrouded within the divine light as he ordered, “Yan'er, Long Pi, unfurl the flag of Celestial Venerable Mu!”
The dragon qilin and Yan'er hurriedly walked out of the carriage. The dragon qilin took out a flag and waved it against the wind, and the vigorous vital qi of Yan'er surged into the flag.
With a swoosh, the great flag fluttered in the wind, with a “Mu” character on it.
Upon seeing this, the face of the god general guarding the celestial fort in the West Pole twitched. He then bowed and said, “Oh, it's Celestial Venerable Mu, I have met you before! Celestial Venerable, I'm the disciple of Celestial Venerable Hong, guarding the West Pole in his name. Currently, West Deity White Tiger is causing trouble. Celestial Venerable, with your priceless body, you shouldn't place yourself in such dangerous grounds. I humbly ask Celestial Venerable to stay away.”
Qin Mu extended his hand and parted the curtain. His gaze landed on that god general's face. From his lofty position, he said indifferently, “Do I need you to tell me what to do? Step back!”
Cold sweat appeared on that god's forehead. However, he remained in place as he said, “Celestial Venerable, I'm sorry. I have heard that Celestial Venerable is just a god. Although your status is high, your abilities aren't strong. The gods and devils of the West Pole are extremely vicious. I'm worried they might hurt Celestial Venerable.”
He didn't back down. “I'm just looking out for Celestial Venerable's safety.”
Qin Mu said plainly, “Whether West Deity is rebellious is yet to be determined. Who are you to tell me otherwise? Step back, and I will give some respect to Celestial Venerable Hong. If you don't, I will deal with you. Even Celestial Venerable Hong would have nothing to say.”
The eyes of that god rolled wildly. Ultimately, he couldn't decide whether to hold back Qin Mu.
Qin Mu saw that the great army of gods and devils were getting closer and began to get anxious. He said angrily, “What nerve you have to block the way of a Celestial Venerable! Yan'er, take him down!”
Yan'er flew up and transformed into a dragon sparrow, pouncing at that god.
Although that god didn't dare to make a move on Qin Mu, he didn't have such restraints for her. He immediately gave off a loud roar, transforming into a devil god with a lion head. As he shook his head, multiple lion heads appeared. He shouted, “I'm thinking of Celestial Venerable's safety. Hence, I need to stop Celestial Venerable to prevent you from getting hurt by rebels! Celestial Venerable, I'm sorry for being forced to get rough!”
His abilities were extremely strong, and multiple celestial palaces appeared behind him. His cultivation was higher than Yan'er's.
That nine-headed lion had impressively cultivated nine great celestial palaces. His abilities were incomparably powerful. He was about to subdue Yan'er when suddenly the eye at the heart of Qin Mu's brows gave out a bright brilliance. He unexpectedly plunged into a daze and didn't manage to react to Yan'er, resulting in him getting seriously wounded by her. His nine heads threw up blood as he fell from the sky.
“How dare you block the carriage of a Celestial Venerable. You deserve to die!”
The dragon qilin stood on the head of one of the heavenly dragons. His voice boomed like thunder, projecting across the celestial fort as he shouted, “Considering that you're the disciple of Celestial Venerable Hong, we'll spare you! Whoever dares to block the path of Celestial Venerable Mu again will definitely be killed!”
Yan'er spread her wings as flames covered the sky. The Vermillion Bird Sacred Fire burned ferociously, melting the entire sky. She dragged her long dragon tail behind her, looking sternly at the rising ships below her.
The soldiers in the celestial fort felt a chill down their spines. They weren't afraid of her but of Celestial Venerable Mu's name.
“Let's go.” The voice of Qin Mu traveled over.
The six heavenly dragons pulled the treasure carriage as it rumbled forward. Soon, it went past the celestial fort, moving head-on towards the great army of gods and devils of the West Pole.
As Qin Mu watched the great army of the West Pole that was closing in, he heard the sky-shattering sounds of battle ahead of him. He couldn't help but laugh from anger, gritting his teeth until he produced a creaking sound.
Although West Deity White Tiger in the White Tiger Celestial Palace saw his carriage and flag, she ultimately didn't recall her troops. Clearly, she was confident of dealing with divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu!
Divine King Lang Wo said plainly, “West Deity is courting her own death and didn't give holy infant any personal consideration. Why do you care whether she lives or dies?”
Qin Mu got up and walked out of the treasure carriage. He stood on it as his consciousness rippled towards the White Tiger Celestial Palace. “West Deity, Celestial Venerable Mu is here to visit. Please recall your troops!”
There was no response from West Deity within the White Tiger Celestial Palace. Instead, the beats of the war drums became louder. A low-pitched horn sounded, full of penetrative power. It projected across the land, causing the blood in people to rise, and their battle desires to soar!
Qin Mu frowned. He turned his head and looked at Divine King Lang Wo, saying solemnly, “I have already found the location of the ancestral court.”
Divine King Lang Wo sighed faintly and stood up. She gently said, “Holy infant, you have to understand that it was the ancient gods who annihilated my race. West Deity was among them. Are you sure you want me to save her?”
