Celestial Venerable Yun and the others arrived outside the Great Void and turned back once again. They saw that the Great Void, which was originally hidden in the void, had been torn by the Grand Emperor, giving off glows of light.
In the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens, in Celestial Venerable Ling's residence, Qin Mu put the drawings down and closed his eyes.
The scenes of the Great Void's battle had already flashed through his mind. Every step of Celestial Venerable Yun was clearly reflected in his mind, image after image.
The Grand Emperor crushed the land of the Great Void that was constructed from consciousness. The deaths of the countless masters of creation and the attack of the collapsed consciousness. Even the leaders of the masters of creation as they tempted the enemy to venture deeper, finally luring him into the trap.
There was Celestial Venerable Ling's deconstruction of the Grand Emperor's seal and sacrificial altar, and the inner workings of Celestial Venerable Yun's ambush and Celestial Venerable Ling's trap in the supreme consciousness realm.
Although he didn't personally witness all of these, he could deduce the details of the battle based on Celestial Venerable Ling's drawings.
After some time, Qin Mu opened his eyes. His gaze flickered as he said solemnly, “Yan'er, Long Pi, let's wait outside the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens, on top of the celestial river.”
Yan'er was very curious. “Who are we waiting for? Is it Celestial Venerable Yun and the rest?”
There was radiance in Qin Mu's eyes as he said, “We are waiting for Da Hong!”
“If the Grand Emperor is dead, Da Hong will definitely come charging with hate, wanting to destroy the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens!”
Qin Mu said solemnly, “At the West Pole of West Deity White Tiger, I stopped Hong, preventing him from harming West Deity further. Even when he had no reason to harm West Deity, he asked me for a certificate of debt, saying I owed him a favor. He won't let anyone get away with anything. Celestial Venerable Yun killed his corporeal body and trapped his consciousness, so he will definitely come to seek revenge!”
Yan'er and the dragon qilin were alarmed and hurriedly followed him to the outside of the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens. The dragon qilin then fastened up the carriage.
Qin Mu sat behind the pearl curtains inside the treasure carriage. He composed himself and produced a sword pellet. With a gentle flick, the sword pellet started circulating, turning into a divine sword that sat horizontally across his knees.
The six heavenly dragons pulled the treasure carriage to a stop on top of the celestial river in front of the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens. Qin Mu, with his sword on his knees, closed his eyes and waited quietly.
Celestial Venerable Yun's plan for killing the Grand Emperor in the Great Void was clearly understood by Qin Mu.
However, the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens wasn't the land of the Great Void. Hence, Qin Mu was unable to replicate Celestial Venerable Yun's plan there.
Only Celestial Venerable Ling's method of breaking the Grand Emperor's seal and sacrificial altar was useful to him.
However, Da Hong was extremely powerful. During his battle with Celestial Emperor in the ancestral court, he had demonstrated his terrifying combat power.
Qin Mu was well aware that his own abilities were far inferior. Qin Mu wasn't confident that he would be able to break his Great Overarching Supreme Consciousness and supreme consciousness realm with Celestial Venerable Ling's method.
The water of the celestial river flowed from west to east, flowing up into the sky, majestic and endless.
The Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage was stationed outside the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens. Despite the river gushing below, the treasure carriage remained motionless.
The sun descended in the west as the lanterns hanging in front of treasure carriage lit up. When the sun sank, it rose again from the east sea.
It went on like that for a few days. During which, there was even a heavy downpour. There was a drought in the Primordial Realm, and people from the tribes offered three pairs of boys and girls to the Rainbringer ancient god as a sacrifice.
The Rainbringer ate the children and projected rain into the Primordial Realm. Because the sacrifice was too meager, only a thin layer of rain fell. He then reminded the people with his thunderous voice, that if they wanted more rain, they would have to sacrifice more children.
After the rain from the Rainbringer, there was a drought again. There were no plants for thousands of miles, just red dried earth.
There were many divine arts practitioners who hurriedly flew past the treasure carriage as they rushed to the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens, asking the gods in the celestial heavens to suppress the drought.
Qin Mu continued to remain motionless.
Yan'er waited until she got a little anxious. Her head moved around and saw the apparitions of a God of Thunder and Goddess of Lightning galloping among the cloud, blasting lightning from their hands. Sounds of thunder rolled and rumbled as lightning shot up all over the place. They were looking for the thieves who sneaked into Xuandu to steal the heavenly fire.
Daily life in the Primordial Realm was the same as usual. The ancient gods still occupied a big part of people's lives. Of course, this would be pretty rare in the later generations.
Yan'er was looking around, and suddenly, she heard a wailing voice coming from the distance, screaming loudly, “Da Hong, Da Hong!”
Yan'er's heart jumped, while the dragon qilin immediately stood up. The six heavenly dragons' muscles and bones suddenly went limp, and they were almost paralyzed on the river.
In the distance, a giant bird fluttered towards them. They saw its green-gold feathers covering the sky like a large gloomy cloud flying towards the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens.
The giant bird looked bigger and bigger as it got closer. With its wings spread wide, it seemed that it could completely cover the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens!
The canopy of the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage suddenly flew up and repeatedly swirled in the sky. Its umbrella cover rose higher and higher as the spokes of the canopy shot up and merged with the sky, turning into forty-nine Heavenly Dao, which draped over the entire Heaven Han Celestial Heavens.
Qin Mu sat in the carriage and said with a solemn voice. “Da Hong, it has been a long time, why don't you come over for a meeting?”
Upon hearing his voice, the green-gold giant bird swept its gaze towards them, its eyes glowing brightly. A vast and majestic consciousness gushed, flooding the sky and earth!
That was Da Hong's consciousness. He didn't use the supreme consciousness realm. To deal with a tiny human such as Qin Mu, there was no need for him to use this kind of ultimate skill.
Qin Mu held his sword but remained motionless. He mobilized his Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique as his consciousness immediately turned into a Great Overarching Heaven covering the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage.
Their consciousnesses collided with each other, and the water of the celestial river below tumbled and surged, leaving a thousand-foot radius around the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage as the only safe area.
A gigantic sphere was formed with the Heavenly Dragon Treasure Carriage at its center. Outside the sphere, waves soared and crashed. Within the sphere, it was calm and quiet.
Qin Mu held his breath with rapt attention. Although his realm wasn't high, his consciousness was absolutely strong. Since Da Hong didn't attack with all his strength and only used his consciousness to attack, he still had the ability to resist him!
The two's consciousnesses collided. Then, suddenly, Qin Mu changed his tactics and mobilized the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure realm. The spirit embryo was one with the Dao, combining Yin and Yang into taiji. He then opened up the heavens and earth, summoning earth, water, wind, and fire.
Stars materialized across the sky, and Heaven Duke, Earth Count, and all of the other gods each had their respective functions and positions. They sat in their respective celestial palaces as they rose through the air.
His realm gave off a ripple, forcefully crushing Da Hong's consciousness!
The turbulent waters of the celestial river abruptly subsided, and the hundred-foot tall waves whipped up by Da Hong's consciousness fell with a whoosh. It was then calm and quiet.
The instant that the two's divine arts clashed, Da Hong flew forward, his claws reaching out for the canopy.
The canopy was refined by the celestial heavens 700,000 years later as part of the carriage for Celestial Venerables. The treasure carriage itself was an exotic treasure composed of various treasures, and the markings drawn on it belonged to ancient gods like Heaven Duke, Earth Count, and the four deities.
In order to crumble the alliance between Qin Mu and the ancient gods, the ten Celestial Venerables of the celestial heavens gave him the treasure carriage.
Qin Mu raised the canopy, transforming it into Heaven Duke. When Da Hong reached out for the canopy, Qin Mu's realm expanded with a gentle whoosh, covering the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens.
Within his realm, the sky reflected his image, and a Heaven Duke with Qin Mu's face rose into the air, merging with the canopy's Heavenly Dao and forcefully blocking Da Hong's attack.
The claws of the green-gold giant bird collided with the canopy. The Heaven Duke under the canopy was unable to resist the attack and shattered into pieces.
In the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens, the gods of the human race and other Postcelestial races reacted. Waves of armies of gods emerged, attacking the giant bird. Qin Mu's consciousness rippled out and roared, “I'm Celestial Venerable Mu. All disciples, listen to my orders—mobilize the canopy together on my command!”
There were hundreds of thousands of gods in the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens. After hearing Qin Mu's words, their primordial spirits quickly appeared as they utilized their vital qi to mobilize the power of the canopy.
In the sky, the canopy covered the celestial heavens, becoming brighter as the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens was sealed with the forty-nine Heavenly Dao.
The green-gold giant bird pounced and attacked several times in a row, failing to break the canopy. Suddenly, it retracted the green feathers that covered the sky. The corners of Qin Mu's eyes twitched as Da Hong came right up to him!
“Celestial Venerable Mu, do you absolutely have to stop me?”
