Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1148 - The Heaven has its own Rules

Even further away, Heavenly Lady Yan also took out her unique treasure. It was a treasure worthy of a Celestial Venerable that she refined. It rose with a strange glow and sealed off the void and earth, stabilizing her footing.

Qin Mu frowned and looked around. However, Heavenly Lady Qiang, Celestial Venerable Gong, and the rest had already occupied their own treasure grounds, so he didn't have many places to choose.

The dragon qilin still couldn't accept that Celestial Venerable Huo hadn't helped Qin Mu in the battle at Jade Pool and had instead joined the camp to kill him. He was muddle-headed.

“Celestial Venerable Huo suffered a huge blow because of Celestial Venerable Yu's death. From the day he was assassinated, he changed.”

Qin Mu continued to search with the dragon qilin and Yan'er, “Back then during the era of the seven Celestial Venerables, the six Celestial Venerables were full of admiration for Celestial Venerable Yu. Other than Celestial Venerable You, Celestial Venerable Huo held the deepest sentiments regarding Celestial Venerable Yu. He was a role model in their hearts, an insurmountable mountain. After Celestial Venerable Yu died, Celestial Venerable You went into seclusion for a million years. Celestial Venerable Huo's thoughts had probably changed at that moment. He hated the ancient gods yet he also wanted to become one.”

He stopped and fell into a daze, “Celestial Venerable You could also be said to have changed. Celestial Venerable Yue's words also revealed that he wasn't trustworthy. However, I had always had a good impression of him in the past, but it was all wishful thinking on my part. Maybe only when Celestial Venerable Yu is revived can he wake up from this dream.”

The dragon qilin smiled and said, “Celestial Venerable Yu has already revived. As long as we steal back the remnant soul from Incense Scattering Hall, Celestial Venerable Yu will no longer be so foolish. Celestial Venerable Huo will definitely change his mind! By then, the human race will be saved!”

Qin Mu revealed a smile and said, “I also hope so.”

His divine consciousness burst forth, forcing back the void beasts back.

“These old foxes have all chosen a place to stay. All the good places have already been taken by them!”

Qin Mu's gaze flickered as he looked around, trying to find an excellent treasure land. However, the eight Celestial Venerables each found an extremely excellent place and have already settled down there.

How could Qin Mu compete with them?

Furthermore, these Celestial Venerables each had a Celestial Venerable grade treasure to suppress the void and prevent the void beasts from invading. Soon, these Celestial Venerables would probably build their own respective strongholds.

When that time came, they would rush over to ask Qin Mu to send them out and let their disciples manage the place. They would get rid of the void beasts and extract various kinds of treasures.

“Even if I could find a treasure ground, I don't have any treasure that can suppress the void beasts.”

Qin Mu blinked and thought to himself, “I can't take out the Glassy Sky Pagoda[1]. With this treasure, it would be a breeze to suppress and kill the void beasts. However, if it catches the attention of the other Celestial Venerables, they will definitely try to take it away. Yet what's even more terrifying is the ancient god egg inside the Glassy Sky Pagoda…”

“Furthermore, I can't be trapped here forever to guard the treasure ground. If I go and ask First Ancestor along with the past Human Emperors to guard this place… I'm afraid First Ancestor Human Emperor won't be a match for the void beast mother…”

Qin Mu thought about it and suddenly had a flash of inspiration. The vertical eye in the heart of his brows opened up and looked around.

“The last time I came to the Grand Creation Mine, the void beasts couldn't enter the mine, which means that the five great mines can prevent the void beasts from entering. However, I only know that Grand Creation Mine is occupied by Celestial Venerable Xiao. Only Celestial Venerable Qiang and Celestial Venerable Gong know where the other four mines are.”

On the Qin Character Continent[2] in his vertical eye, two huge ancient god eggs were communicating with each other. Suddenly, the ancient god in the egg seemed to be able to sense the situation outside, and the Dao voices instantly stopped.

The two eggs gave off slight tremors, and the two ancient god eggs looked excited!

Qin Mu examined his surroundings and thought to himself, “I don't know where the other four mines are, but these two ancient god eggs must know! Instead of me running around, why don't I let them tell me?”

The two ancient god eggs didn't move.

Qin Mu blinked and waited for a moment. The two ancient god eggs still didn't move.

Qin Mu clenched his teeth, and his divine consciousness rippled. Not long later, the sky suddenly split open, revealing a huge eye.

The eye rolled around, and its gaze landed on Qin Mu's body. Next, an incomparably huge void beast squeezed out from the void and landed on the ground.

Yan'er and the dragon qilin cried out in alarm and immediately went on guard.

This void beast was covered in void markings, and its six incomparably thick legs took a step forward. Its sharp claws gripped the ground as it circled around them a few times. Its eyes rolled upwards, revealing a mouth full of sharp teeth.

Yan'er gave a soft shout and her primordial spirit appeared, ready to attack at any moment.

“Do you still recognize me?” Qin Mu asked with a smile.

The eyes of the void beast drooped down, and its mouth disappeared. Its head popped out towards Qin Mu.

Qin Mu lifted his hand, and the void beast gently rubbed against his palm. Yan'er let out a sigh of relief. When the void beast heard her panting, it jumped far away and stared at her with caution.

The dragon qilin was astonished, “Cult Master, is this void beast the one you subdued back then?”

Qin Mu nodded his head and said with a smile, “It's been a million years, yet it's still living well and has become even stronger.”

He rose into the air and landed on the bone mountain behind the void beast's skull, standing tall against the wind.

The dragon qilin and Yan'er hurriedly flew up and also landed on the bone mountain. When the void beast saw them, its eyes rolled upwards, and it turned its head to let out a threatening whimper.

Qin Mu took out the Glassy Sky Pagoda and used it like a walking stick to knock down on the bone mountain.

Only then did the void beast restrain its ferocious nature. It leaped up and sprinted frantically through the mountains.

Qin Mu leaned on the Glassy Sky Pagoda and used it to stand against the wind. Although the Glassy Sky Pagoda was eye-catching, the Celestial Venerables were tidying up their own territories and had no time to pay attention to it.

He completely indulged the void beast and allowed it to run without a destination.

The dragon qilin and Yan'er stood beside him and looked around curiously. They saw that the void beast that Qin Mu had tamed wasn't walking in a straight line. Instead, it looked like it was wandering aimlessly. They couldn't help feeling anxious, “Cult Master (Young Master) won't be able to find another treasure land, and all the treasures will be taken by the Celestial Venerables!”

This void beast had wandered for more than half a day and was still moving aimlessly. However, there was an “intuition” in its incomparably simple mind that told it that this wasn't the place its master wanted.

This “intuition” came from the ancient god egg of the Glassy Sky Pagoda!

In terms of foresight, Qin Mu definitely wasn't as experienced as Celestial Venerable Xiao, Celestial Venerable Hong, and Celestial Venerable Qiang. He wasn't as knowledgeable as half-gods like Celestial Venerable Hao and Divine King Zu.

However, the armillary sphere of the Glassy Sky Pagoda was actually an ancient god egg born in Ancestral Court's mine. Its knowledge and experience were definitely not inferior to that of Celestial Venerable Xiao, not inferior to ancient god Celestial Emperor!

Qin Mu knew that the two ancient god eggs he had obtained were on guard against him, so he summoned the void beast he had subdued and let the reins loose. The ancient god egg of the Glassy Sky Pagoda would lead him to the treasure land.

The void beast travelled for three days at an extremely fast speed. Before the other void beasts could see it clearly, it had already sprinted past them. On this day, the void beast finally came to a barren land and stopped advancing.

Qin Mu stood at a high vantage and looked around. He saw that there were already dilapidated mines all around him. They were like black holes that had sunk deep into the ground, winding as they went deep into an ancient mountain range.

Multicoloured light rose faintly from those mines, and the aura of treasures filled the air.

The masters of creation from prehistoric times had left behind traces of mining here. However, there were only tall skeletons left: the skeletons of the masters of creation.

The ground in the distance split open, revealing a few large eyeballs that rolled around. It was the void beasts nearby that were secretly observing them.

Qin Mu didn't mind. He put away the Glassy Sky Pagoda and was about to walk into the camp left behind by the masters of creation when he saw a slender woman walk out. Both of them were stunned when they met.

“Celestial Venerable Gong.” Qin Mu greeted.

“Celestial Venerable Mu.”

Celestial Venerable Gong returned the greeting and said, “I've already repaid your favour in the battle at Jade Pool. Celestial Venerable Mu, we don't owe each other anything. This is the mine of my Xin family, I won't let you have it.”

When Qin Mu heard her admit that she was one of the three Celestial Venerables who had saved him in Jade Pool Battle, he couldn't help feeling a little disappointed and thought to himself, “It really wasn't Celestial Venerable Huo.”

“Sorry to disturb you.”

Qin Mu bowed and patted the void beast. “I'll find another treasure land.”

[1] The Glassy Sky Pagoda is the treasure that Qin Mu stole from East Deity a long time ago. It was a treasure that went missing in history as Qin Mu brought it to the present with him.

[2] The Qin Character Continent is also the iris of his eye: formed by a part of Earth Count's horns.
