Step by step, Founding Emperor closed in on Numinous Sky Treasured Hall as his aura became stronger. The sword qi that burst forth from his surroundings seemed to split Celestial Heavens into two halves!
He had already arrived beneath Numinous Sky Treasured Hall. His sword is yet to leave its sheath, yet he himself was an incomparably sharp sword.
Sprememe sword path, trampling the heavens to meet Celestial Emperor!
Even if ancient god Celestial Emperor does not come out, he will slaughter through Numinous Sky Treasured Hall and take Celestial Emperor's head!
Celestial Heavens was in chaos as countless gods and devils ran around like headless flies. Some were rushing towards Jade Capital's Numinous Sky Treasured Hall, whilst others sought to escape. The rest took advantage of the situation: looting and pillaging around.
The gods and devils who were officials in Celestial Heavens hid in their homes. The wives and family memebers shivered whilst a god official consoled them. “Everything is alright. It doesn't matter who is Celestial Emperor. As long as Celestial Emperor wants to rule over the myraid heavens, he has no other choice but to use us. Even if Founding Emperor killed Celestial Emperor, he won't harm us.”
Because of Founding Emperor's arrival, the Celestial Heaven that used to look orderely like stretched chains fell into chaos just like that. On this day, Celestial Heaven's bright and beautiful exterior was torn apart and what is under was unexpectedly rotten corruption.
A ray of light flashed past. Celestial Venerable Hao's face was dim as he stood in front of Numinous Sky Treasured Hall. Taking a step forward, he looks at Founding Emperor from above and said coldly, “Qin Ye, you are too impudent.”
Founding Emperor held Carefree Sword in his hand and said leisurely, “Celestial Venerable Hao, you plotted to kill Celestial Emperor and steal his authority. You even made a fake Celestial Emperor to guard the place. Am I the impudent one or are you impudent?”
Celestial Venerable Hao's aura bursts forth as multiple Heavenly Palaces leap out from the light wheel behind his head, filling the Celestial Heavens. He said lightly, “Six Celestial Venerables are headed towards the Great Void. The Celestial Heavens appear empy but there are still four Celestial Venerables overseeing it. Qin Ye, you are seeking your own death.”
“Four Celestial Venerables overseeing?”
Founding Emperor grasped his sword hilt and said leisurely, “Actually, there's already more than enough. With us two fighting alone, we can cause havoc across the entirety of Dragon Han Celestial Heavens.”
Celestial Venerable Xiao walked over from behind him whilst filing her nails. With a smile, she said, “Dao friend Qin, it's really not enough.”
“It's still enough.”
A giant claw descended, and a huge void beast appeared in Celestial Emperor's chamber of corcubines. Divine King Lang Wo plainly said, “Now we have four Celestial Venerables. It's not impossible for this battle to completely destroy Celestial Heavens.”
The corner of Celestial Venerable Xiao's eye twitched. Suddenly, Heavenly Lady Qiang's voice rang out,she smiled lazily. “Because I'm only a Heavenly Lady, I'm afraid to show my face and so I didn't go to the Great Void. I didn't expect to bump into Celestial Venerable Qin in Celestial Heavens. Who is this sister?”
Divine King Lang Wo stood up high, her sleeves fluttering but she didn't say anything.
Founding Emperor's palm moved lightly as half an inch of Carefree Sword is revealed from its sheath. He said leisurely, “Looks like Heaven Duke and Earth Count have gotten their chance.”
Celestial Venerables Qiang, Xiao and Hao were astonished. They immediately understood the meanings of his words.
As long as there were fewer than three Celestial Venerables guarding Celestial Heavens, then these two ancient gods would take action and kill off the Celestial Venerables.
Right now, there were four Celestial Venerables: Hao, Xiao, Qiang and Heavenly Lady Yan in the chamber of corcubines. If they sent two Celestial Venerables to stop Founding Emperor and Diving King Lang Wo, then it would be a immense oppotunity for Heaven Duke and Earth Count.
After eliminating four Celestial Venerables, the remaining six would have to face an embarassing disadvantage.
One should know, Founding Emperor Qin Ye was a natural ally of the ancient gods. Back then, Founding Emperor Era was supported by the ancient gods.
The ancient gods groomed Founding Emperor was exactly to help him rival against the Celestial Heavens.
Founding Emperor Qin Ye, with the addition of Divine King Lang Wo, Heaven Duke, Earth Count, Celestial Venerable You, ancient gods three emperors, as well as the Celestial Venerable Yue who was hiding in seclusion, caused the power balance to reverse suddenly.
Although Heaven Duke and Earth Count would be restrained by the Great Dao of their own realms, it was definitely enough to severely injure them!
In the instant that they lost their composure, Founding Emperor suddenly pulled out his sword, and Carefree Sword stabbed towards Celestial Venerable Hao!
He wanted this opportunity!
He did not come to Celestial Heavens to compromise, nor was he here to joke around with the Celestial Venerables.
He was here to destroy it!
He was here to beat Celestial Heavens until they bled. He wanted to beat the Celestial Venerables until they didn't dare to enter the Great Void!
His first move was also his strongest as he unleashed the 34th Heaven of his Sword Path that was based on the 20th basic sword form.
His sword realm expanded and erupted, pressing forward with an indomitable will. As a peerless overlord that founded an era, just this aura alone was rare in a million years, let alone his strength!
In the distance, when Qin Mu saw this sword, his spirits couldn't help rise as he cheered loudly.
The Founding Emperor of today was the Founding Emperor he wanted to see. He was strong, confident, and believed no obstacles can stop him. Any dangers and difficulties would be split apart by his sword!
However, Qin Mu's expression soon changed drastically. He hurriedly smacked the dragon qilin and shouted, “This place is too high, be careful of the sword qi!”
Just as he finished speaking, Celestial Venerable Hao raised his palm and grabbed at Founding Emperor's 34th Sword Path Heaven.
He was like a high and mighty emperor that controlled all the Great Dao in the world. When he reached out with his hand, the myraid Dao of Heaven and Earth were under his rule.
Behind him, the Celestial Palaces overlapped one another, and light shone brightly. Behind his head, the wheels of light were radiant and incomparably bright. The Great Dao in his hands gathered as myraid Dao converged.
That was a pure Precelestial Dao without a single trace of Postcelestial Dao.
As the son of Celestial Emperor and Yuanmu, Celestial Venerable Hao had unparalleled pride and proud bloodline.
His talent was extremely high, and he was Celestial Venerable Hao, who had opened up Six Directions Divine Treasure. The only thing that made him feel inferior was that Celestial Emperor had only given birth to him after reincarnating as a human, meaning his bloodline is half human.
This was the biggest stain in his life.
However, from the strength displayed by all the Celestial Venerables, he was the strongest. Because of his bloodline, he was born with a closer connection to the Dao than the other Celestial Venerables, making it easier for him to cultivate and comprehend the essence of the Great Dao.
Therefore, he had the most Precelestial Dao.
Founding Emperor sword stabbed into his palm, the Sword Path Domain collided with the Myriad Dao Domain. The two's divine arts burst forth, but Celestial Venerable Hao's cultivation was incomparably dense, far surpassing Founding Emperor's. Even Celestial Venerable Huo, who had absorbed South Deity's Great Dao, was still inferior.
His power was tyrannical, and it wasn't only due to the talent of his bloodline. It was also the result of his painstaking cultivation.
There were a total of 28 Celestial Palaces behind him, and this was the highest number among the ten Celestial Venerables. Even Celestial Venerable Xu only had 20, and Celestial Venerable Lang only had 18.
Although they may be hiding their abilities, Celestial Venerable Hao with 28 Celestial Palaces had the most complete Great Celestial Heavens technique.
He was already half a step into the legendary Celestial Heavens Realm!
However, what was terrifying was that when the Sword Path Domain collided with the Myriad Dao Domain, Founding Emperor's sword actually braved all hardships and broke through the Myriad Dao Domain like snapping bamboo. With a whoosh, Celestial Venerable Hao saw the tip of the sword stabbing out from the back of his hand.
Meanwhile, Founding Emperor's body trembled violently, and his Sword Path domain collapsed. The 34 heavens of the Sword Path lost control and shot out in all directions!
A terrifying Sword Path storm seemed to have set off with Numinous Sky Treasured Hall as the centre. With that place as the origin, it expanded in all directions, engulfing everything that passed by!
It was not only the Sword Path Domain, but also the Myriad Dao Domain that was expanding continuously!
Celestial Venerable Hao's Myriad Dao Domain was well prepared, and only now did it reveal its incomparable prestige!
 Changed “Numinous Sky Hall” to “Numinous Sky Treasured Hall” for plot reasons in the far future.
 In some instances, “Dao” is difficult to translate to “Path” and is instead left in its raw form. I'll try my best to be consistent on where I use Path and where i use Dao. I'm thinking of using Path for postcelestial and Dao for precelestial.
