‘Who was the first to enter Celestial Emperor's corporeal body?'
Qin Mu was so excited that his consciousness almost got snuffed out.
Who took Celestial Emperor's corporeal body after his death was a contentious historical issue. Few knew the secret!
Suddenly, Qin Mu saw a figure moving in the celestial heavens. He was ahead of even Celestial Venerable Yun and Celestial Venerable Hao!
‘Could it be the Grand Emperor?'
Qin Mu's heart shuddered. He knew that the ten Celestial Venerables of the later generation had eleven people. One of the Grand Emperor's reincarnated bodies became a Celestial Venerable in the higher echelons of the Heaven Alliance.
He entered Celestial Emperor's corporeal body near the end of the High Emperor Era and killed Celestial Venerable Ling with it!
Could the person rushing towards the celestial heavens before Yun and Hao be the Grand Emperor's reincarnation?
At the same time, Qin Mu saw Divine King Gong Yun. She was fast behind Celestial Venerable Yun and Celestial Venerable Hao, faster than Qin Mu and the others at rushing into the celestial heavens.
Her consciousness burst forth, and the gods of the celestial heavens who encountered her fell into her consciousness illusion. No one could escape.
Even the Great Sun Sovereign who charged forward with star gods fell for it. They knew not where they were.
Her appearance caused chaos in the celestial heavens, but when she used her consciousness, the chaos ended. It was as if no one could see her heading straight for the Jade Capital and Numinous Sky Hall.
It was clear that she wanted the ancient Celestial Emperor's corporeal body too!
‘Gong Yun was a primordial divine king, so for now, Celestial Venerable Yun and the others are no match for her. If they enter the Numinous Sky Hall, the one most likely to gain control of Celestial Emperor's corporeal body is her. However, such a contest would probably lead them to encounter another of Celestial Emperor's souls, right?'
Qin Mu thought quickly. The other soul of Celestial Emperor probably reincarnated too, and that person was likely Celestial Venerable Xiao of the later generations.
‘Will Xiao be in the celestial heavens? There are many places to hide. Even though Mistress Yuanmu became Jue Wuchen, she must covet Celestial Emperor's corporeal body too. Maybe even Celestial Empress, who she killed via scheming, became another Celestial Venerable that's hiding in the celestial heavens in preparation to steal Celestial Emperor's body!'
Qin Mu huffed and puffed. He felt dizzy.
He was too naive in his thinking in the past. It appeared that the battle for the emperor was more complex than he believed!
‘The ten Celestial Venerables kept causing each other trouble and restraining one another during the Eternal Peace Era. They control the fake Celestial Emperor corporeal body together. Such a tradition must have formed during the latter half of the Dragon Han Era.'
He couldn't see the battle for Celestial Emperor's corporeal body in the Numinous Sky Hall, which disappointed him, but that part of history was set.
He was in great anticipation of the big change coming to the Dragon Han Celestial Heavens.
After Celestial Emperor's death, power would be split again. To secure the four deities of the ancient gods, they would allow them to split from the celestial heavens and go back to their ancestral lands.
The celestial heavens would continue to rise and leave the Primordial Realm, so people would no longer be able to find the exact location of the ancestral court.
Mother Earth would also grow stronger due to the lack of restraint from the celestial heavens. She wouldn't be able to hold back her ambition during the High Emperor Era and would help her son make the North High Emperor Celestial Heavens, which he was the emperor of!
These were the consequences of the battle today.
Celestial Venerable Yun and Celestial Venerable Hao had already entered the Numinous Sky Hall after the Grand Emperor's reincarnation. At the moment, Divine King Gong Yun was outside the hall too.
Suddenly, a giant palm came, striking outside from the inside of the hall!
Qin Mu saw the palm and felt that it could control the sky, the earth, and countless worlds!
This palm came from the inside of the Numinous Sky Hall, which was far from him, but he still felt pressured. It was as if thousands of Heaven and Earth Daos were in the control of this hand!
The hand of Celestial Emperor!
It was aimed at Divine King Gong Yun, which caught her off guard. This unrestrained female divine king of the primordial era, wife of the Grand Emperor, was blown to pieces immediately!
‘I…' Qin Mu almost chewed through his bronze teeth.
He was there to find Divine King Gong Yun so she could heal his consciousness injuries, yet, unexpectedly, a Celestial Venerable controlled Celestial Emperor's corporeal body and killed Gong Yun with one hit!
Cold sweat rolled down his forehead. ‘It can't be the Grand Emperor. Celestial Emperor also loved Gong Yun, and he would allow her body to remain intact. Then, who did this? Celestial Venerable Yun? Celestial Venerable Hao? Mistress Yuanmu?'
Fresh blood dripped from Celestial Emperor's hand as it was retracted. Hollering came from the Numinous Sky Hall. It likely came from the fighting of the Celestial Venerables inside who were attempting to control Celestial Emperor's corporeal body.
The one-hit kill on Gong Yun, which illustrated the power of the corporeal body, made them more determined to obtain it.
The death of Divine King Gong Yun caused the gods of the celestial heavens controlled by her via her illusion to wake up. The Great Sun Sovereign gathered the star gods to search around as he hollered, “Pay attention, you lot! There might still be more rebels! Release the Heavenly Roaring Dogs!”
Countless gods released their chains as thin black dogs leaped down from the clouds to Divine King Gong Yun's broken corpse to sniff it.
Soon, many more flew into the sky to search around.
Chaos dominated the celestial heavens. At the same time, Ancestral God King, Celestial Venerable Yue, Celestial Venerable Ling, God Emperor Lang Xuan, and the others rushed for the Numinous Sky Hall, leaving behind the Great Sun Sovereign, who was chasing them.
Yan'er, the dragon qilin, and the others had snuck into the celestial heavens. They shuddered upon seeing how Divine King Gong Yun was killed in one hit from Celestial Emperor's palm.
Yan'er said while trembling, “Young Master, what do we do now?”
Qin Mu groaned. He was about to speak when a palace maid approached them. She was in a daze when she came to Yan'er and said to the halo behind her, “My corporeal body is dead. The Great Sun Sovereign intends to find me and kill me off entirely.”
Yan'er and the dragon qilin were shocked, and they asked, “You're Divine King Gong Yun?”
That palace maid was delicate. It was just that her consciousness was in a mess, so it was hard to borrow her body to live, which made her seem stiff and in a lull. She said robotically, “I'm not the Great Sun Sovereign's match. I can't defend against the siege of those ancient gods. Protect me, Celestial Venerable Mu.”
The dragon qilin almost jumped as he shouted, “How can Master save you when he can barely protect himself?”
The palace maid replied, “Celestial Venerable Mu, your injury is worse than mine. It isn't hard to recover my consciousness, but only I can heal your consciousness injury.”
Qin Mu's consciousness said, “Take her away!”
The dragon qilin hurriedly asked, “To where, Cult Master?”
“The Black Tortoise Celestial Palace of North Deity.”
Qin Mu sighed. “We don't know the result of the battle for Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, and even if we did, they would still find people to search for Gong Yun. Given how many Heavenly Roaring Dogs the Great Sun Sovereign has, it would be hard to avoid him. Thus, we can only be protected if we have that treasure, the Glassy Sky Pagoda, now.”
Yan'er was excited. The dragon qilin glanced at her and said, “Keep quiet, just in case the Great Sun Sovereign finds us.”
Yan'er hurriedly lowered her voice, not daring to cheer. “I've wanted to see this legendary number one treasure for a long time! That d*mned couple that stole the treasure…”
The dragon qilin gave a cold humph and said grudgingly, “Is us!”
