Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1144 - Book Of Oaths
Celestial Venerable Xiao, Heavenly Lady Qiang, and Heavenly Lady Yan were puzzled and inquired. Celestial Venerable Hong told them about the events at West Extremities and chuckled, “I took advantage of Dao Brother Mu and received an acknowledgement of debt from him.”
Everyone expressed their envy, and Heavenly Lady Qiang chuckled. “When will Celestial Venerable Mu write me an acknowledgement of debt?”
Qin Mu smiled. “You flatter me, you flatter me.”
However, at this moment, a stream of light streaked across the sky. Little Seven's, the white cat, pupils shrunk and became a sharp line and meowed. Heavenly Lady Yan immediately said, “God Sovereign Lang Xuan, wait, wait!”
The flowing light stopped. It was God Sovereign Lang Xuan. When he saw the two carriages, he immediately stood up and greeted, “Ah, so it is everyone!”
Celestial Venerable Xiao smiled. “The cold air outside is heavy. Come into the carriage quickly.”
God Sovereign Lang Xuan was about to walk over when he saw Qin Mu in the carriage. He snorted and said, “I'm not going to sit with him!” After he said that, he turned his head and walked towards Celestial Venerable Hao's carriage.
Celestial Venerable Hong hurriedly tried to smooth things over and said with a smile, “Dao Brother Mu, don't take it to heart. This is just his nature, he's very straightforward.”
Qin Mu said angrily, “God Sovereign won't even look at me, I don't know how I have offended him!”
Everyone laughed, “You have destroyed his Lang Xuan Divine Palace time and time again, so he naturally has some complaints about you. However, this is a just some small matter. When Celestial Venerable Hong invites us to drink again, you two can just talk things out.”
Qin Mu was indescribably touched and said, “Many thanks to Dao friends for caring for me.”
The white cat meowed again, and everyone looked outside. They couldn't help being delighted and shouted, “Divine King Zu, over here!”
Divine King Zu paused in the sky and saw a glimpse of Qin Mu. He was furious and said, “If there is Qin Mu, then there is no me!” After he said that, he walked into Celestial Venerable Hao's carriage.
Qin Mu said angrily, “I have offended God Sovereign Lang Xuan, but I haven't offended him. Why is Divine King Zu always so against me?”
Everyone laughed. “Divine King Zu abhors evil, and his eyes can't tolerate even a half grain of sand. Our eyes are big, so it's fine even if we have a few specks of sand in our eyes.”
Qin Mu laughed and said, “I've been opening my heart to you all, yet you all treat me like a grain of sand. My heart is pained.”
Heavenly Lady Qiang smiled. “There's no need to say that, Celestial Venerable Mu. Everyone is clear about this… Ah, Celestial Venerable Gong! Dao Friend Gong, Dao Friend Gong, come here quickly!”
Celestial Venerable Gong stopped and lifted the curtain. He looked around in astonishment and said, “This carriage is full, I'll go to that…”
Heavenly Lady Qiang hurriedly jumped up and grabbed her arm. “The people in the other carriage are all stinky men. We have two women here, so you'll definitely feel more comfortable here. Why don't you stay and let us sisters talk?”
Celestial Venerable Gong didn't bat an eyelid. She gently shook off her grasp and said, “I'll stay. Was it Founding Emperor and the demoness of the masters of creation who did evil and destroyed Celestial Heavens?”
Everyone nodded, and Celestial Venerable Hong sighed. “The demoness and Founding Emperor committed evil and attacked our weakness, almost causing a huge disaster. How hateful, how hateful!”
Qin Mu smacked his armrest and said angrily, “Old scoundrel Qin Ye and I are irreconcilable. I will definitely tear him apart when we meet!”
Everyone advised him, “Calm down, Celestial Venerable Mu. It's not worth being angry over this fellow.”
Qin Mu was furious and said, “I want to spit on his face!”
Everyone said, “Everyone is well aware of Dao Brother Mu's intentions, so there's no need to say any more. Calm down, calm down.”
Heavenly Lady Yan smiled. “Just now, Celestial Venerable Mu said that Ancestral Court has reappeared in the world, and benefits shall be equally divided between everyone. What do you think?”
Everyone looked at each other in dismay. Celestial Venerable Hong smiled and said, “Dao Brother Mu words are too rough, but the principle isn't. The benefits in Ancestral Court are huge, so we indeed have to split them. I'm a Celestial Venerable of the demon race, so I naturally have to consider the interests of the demon race.”
Heavenly Lady Yan smiled. “I saw many treasures from the ancient gods, and they were all from Ancestral Court. I was a little greedy, and only thought about myself but I didn't consider my own race. It's my fault.”
Heavenly Lady Qiang lamented, “His Majesty hasn't visited me for many years, and my affection has shifted to jewellery. I have to get some to play with.”
Celestial Venerable Gong was being cold and didn't say anything.
Celestial Venerable Hong frowned and said, “If the seal of Ancestral Court is broken, it won't be a good thing for this world! Instead, it will be an calamity of the world! I don't agree…”
Qin Mu pulled open the dragon qilin's ear and took out Tiny Earth Count that was dozing off. He said with a smile, “I have a way to enter Ancestral Court without breaking its seal, that's why I propose to split the benefits equally. Even though Ancestral Court is dangerous, it's not a good idea to keep the dangers sealed inside. It's best to get rid of it. The Celestial Venerables of our Heavenly Alliance have this duty.”
He poked at Tiny Earth Count, and Tiny Earth Count woke up. He looked at him with a solemn expression, clearly unhappy that he was forced awake.
Heavenly Lady Yan and Heavenly Lady Qiang looked over, surprised and delighted. They smiled. “Earth Count is frighteningly big, but I didn't expect this fellow to be so cute!”
Qin Mu smiled. “Of course it's very cute.”
Tiny Earth Count yawned and spat out a book.
Celestial Venerable Xiao raised her left eyebrow when she saw this book.
Heavenly Lady Qiang asked curiously, “What book is this?”
“It is this little fellow's book of oaths.”
Qin Mu explained, “I once sworn brotherhood with my three older brothers. Those three brothers either died or disappeared, making me sigh to this day. Now that I think of them again, my heart is quite moved.”
He took the book of oath, and his heart stirred slightly. He sensed the contents of the oath and turned to look at Celestial Venerable Xiao, who had a calm expression.
He also sensed that Qin Mu had sensed him through the oath and said, “I'll consider it carefully. Celestial Venerable Mu's suggestion isn't impossible, so let's split the benefits equally.”
Qin Mu sensed the contents of the oath again, and his heart suddenly trembled. His expression became incomparably strange.
Xiao was ancient god Celestial Emperor, but the second person he sensed wasn't Celestial Venerable Hong as he had guessed!
Back then, he had sworn brotherhood with the masters of creation, Luo Xiao, Da Hong, and Gu Xiao. The oath that these three brother shall die on the same day, same month, and same year was made through this Tiny Earth Count!
Qin Mu only dared to take out the oath book when Celestial Venerable Gong was around to threaten ancient god Celestial Emperor and Grand Emperor!
However, other than the dead Luo Xiao and Qin Mu himself, he had confirmed that Xiao was Celestial Emperor, but Grand Emperor wasn't Celestial Venerable Hong!
He slowly raised his head and looked at Heavenly Lady Qiang, who was talking and laughing with Celestial Venerable Gong.
Heavenly Lady Qiang chuckled. “Celestial Venerable Mu is sneaking glances at me. Be careful of Celestial Emperor decapitating your head.” She giggled.
Qin Mu's expression became incomparably weird. “Bastard…”
Celestial Venerable Xiao followed his gaze and looked at Heavenly Lady Qiang. Her expression became strange, and he had the same thought as Qin Mu. ‘Bastard!'
Qin Mu hurriedly rolled up the oath and stuffed it into Tiny Earth Count's mouth. He then stuffed Tiny Earth Count back into the dragon qilin's ear. His heart thumping wildly.
“Damn it, damn it… Bah, I shouldn't say vulgarities!”
His heart was in a mess. When he had entered Celestial Heavens and taken over Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, Heavenly Lady Qiang had laid seductively on his palm to seduce him. Now that he thought about it, he felt a confusing fear.
‘Damn it, Grand Emperor is Heavenly Lady Qiang, so who is Celestial Venerable Hong?'
He turned to look at Celestial Venerable Hong. Celestial Venerable Hong looked at him kindly and chuckled. “Celestial Venerable Mu still owes me a favour.”
