Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1165 - Killing the mother beast
“What a fierce beast!”
When the various Celestial Venerables saw this, they couldn't help but raise their voices in unison. The void beast mother was truly powerful. She bit through numerous heavens in one gulp, and her mouth could even swallow planets!
“Although he has the number one treasure in the world, he does not have the corresponding troops. That Qin fellow is but an ordinary person blessed by luck.” Divine King Zu sneered.
After the huge void beast bit through the eight heavens, huge beast eggs fell like rain from the holes in the void. It was as if a meteor shower had descended on the various heavens of the Glassy Sky Pagoda. Rays of light flashed past and crashed into the heavens.
When the void beast eggs landed on the ground, they immediately split open. The void beasts crawled out from the eggs one after another, roaring towards the sky as they pounced towards the treasures in the various heavens.
“Truly a world-destroying power!” The Celestial Venerables exclaimed in unison.
God Sovereign Lang Xuan said, “One strike could pierce through eight heavens, even many Emperor's Throne Realm practitioners may not have such powerful strength! This time, Celestial Venerable Mu cannot keep his territory safe.”
“Yet he must not die.”
All the Celestial Venerables said, “If we work together, we can open the seal of Ancestral Court, but these void beasts are hard to defend against. Even if one of them escapes, it will be a huge problem. We still need Celestial Venerable Mu, who can bring us out without disturbing the seal of Ancestral Court.”
Just as they said that, they saw Qin Mu reverse the 28 heavens to protect the armillary sphere.
This was a forced action.
If Qin Mu could use tens of thousands of gods and devils to set up the formation, he would be able to utilise the power of great treasures of the various heavens and repair the inflicted damage immediately.
However, he was only one person, so he could only reverse the heavens and shift the damaged heavens towards the inside, temporarily blocking the opening.
He had no time to deal with the smaller void beasts that had infiltrated the 28 heavens. Countless small void beasts pounced on the treasures and opened their mouths to chew on them.
Qin Mu bowed to the jade pillar of the Clear Sky Pagoda, and the light from the treasures shone brightly, piercing countless void beasts into pieces and even vaporizing them!
However, the adult void beasts had already rushed into the heavens and started to devour the treasures whole!
The void beast mother descended once again and stretched out half of her incomparably huge body from the nineteenth void. She stretched out her sharp claws and tore apart the heavens layer by layer!
The moment the heavens were torn apart, her head followed closely behind. Her eyes rolled upwards, covering her huge pupil. She opened her mouth wide and swallowed the armillary sphere!
The void beast mother's intelligence wasn't that high and she wasn't much smarter than the regular void beasts. However, it was Grand Emperor who was controlling the void beast mother and the void beast hordes and he was an extremely intelligent being. After observing. he realised that the armillary sphere was the core of the number one treasure in the world, the Glassy Sky Pagoda.
That was why the void beast mother focused in dealing with the armillary sphere, intending to completely cripple this precious treasure.
Just as the void beast mother was about to swallow the armillary sphere, Qin Mu suddenly had a thought. He mobilized the position of the heavenly ball and made it sink from the Eight Heavens of the Earth to the Ninth Heaven.
Just as the void beast mother was about to swallow the armillary sphere, Qin Mu suddenly mobilised the armillary sphere with a thought. The sphere sank from the 8th heaven to the 9th heaven.
The void beast mother stretched out another portion of her body and continued chasing into the 9th heaven. However, the armillary sphere sank down to the 10th heaven.
The void beast mother continued into the 10th heaven, and the armillary sphere sank back down to the 11th heaven. The void beast mother followed closely behind, unwilling to part with it. Soon, she ended up in the 18th heaven, and her entire body was about to be fully revealed from the 17th void.
Right at this moment, Qin Mu suddenly changed the formation of the heavens. The 28 heavens revolved frantically, and the 28 heavens were like ebbing lava. Countless void beasts that had barged into the heavens were thrown into a daze. Unable to stand still, they were flung away from one treasure after another!
Qin Mu gave a loud shout, and the 28 heavens suddenly stopped spinning. Countless void beasts crashed into the barriers of each heaven, smashing the barriers into pieces!
Qin Mu bowed and shouted, “Treasure, please slaughter my strong enemies!”
The 28 heavens were about to be destroyed, and precious treasures were about to fall from the heavens one after another. At this moment, the armillary sphere suddenly trembled, and a boundless power burst forth. The power of the great treasures of the various heavens burst forth from all directions, bombarding the void beast mother!
A world-shaking explosion rang out, and multicoloured lights of spewed out. The Dao sound vibrated, and the incomparably huge body of the void beast mother shattered in the light. It exploded, and the huge beast's head fell off its broken neck!
Boom boom boom—
Countless loud bangs connected into a line, blasting the mother beast's head and body into pieces. Blood droplets poured down from the sky like a crashing waterfall.
Next, the two legs of the void beast mother that was hidden in the 19th void also fell.
Qin Mu was delighted when he saw this, but he suddenly felt dizzy. He knew that he had exhausted all of his brain to fight against the void beast horde, causing his spirit to be damaged.
However, now that the beast group had no leader, it was the best time to slaughter the void beasts.
He roused his spirit and activated the Glassy Sky Pagoda. With the power of the armillary sphere, he mobilized the power of the treasures to kill the void beasts that had entered the 28 heavens.
The herds of beasts were in chaos as they fought on their own. Soon, more than half of them were slaughtered by him. However, the 28 heavens were damaged, and there were still quite a number of void beasts that escaped.
Qin Mu forcefully endured it and executed his precious treasures repeatedly. He finally cleared out all the void beasts in the 28 heavens.
His vision turned black, and he knew that his spirit was exhausted. However, he still gritted his teeth and bowed to the Glassy Sky Pagoda. In a hoarse voice, he said, “Treasure, please repair yourself.”
The damages done to the 28 heavens were slowly recovering.
Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief. He knew that with the commotions here, it would be hard to hide it from the other Celestial Venerables. Just as he was about to open his mouth and speak, a sudden disgusting feeling hit as he started to vomit.
He hurriedly executed Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique to recover his spirit, and he saw familiar figures walking over from afar, approaching the black wood mountain ranges.
The black wood mountain ranges was completely covered by the corpse of the void beast, and the original scenery couldn't be seen. Even Qin Mu couldn't mobilize the power of the Glassy Sky Pagoda to block the invasion of these Celestial Venerables.
Hao, Xiao, Gong, Qiang, Hong, Yan, Lang Xuan and Zu, the eight Celestial Venables walked over to the black wood mountain ranges without their feet touching the ground. Qin Mu suppressed his urge to vomit and greeted everyone, “Greetings, Dao friends.”
Heavenly Lady Qiang said with concern, “Celestial Venerable Mu, your face is so pale. You must have exhausted too much energy. Don't force yourself.”
Qin Mu snorted, “I can endure. Has everyone established their own territories and are planning to leave Ancestral Court?”
Celestial Venerable Xiao looked around and praised, “What a good place. Celestial Venerable Mu's vision is truly peerless, to actually recognize such a treasure land. The scenery here is beautiful, and it's most likely the number one treasure land in Ancestral Court!”
God Sovereign Lang Xuan, Celestial Venerable Yan, and the rest nodded and praised, “The number one treasure land! The number one treasure land! Celestial Venerable Mu picked up a huge bargain!”
Everyone laughed loudly.
Celestial Venerable Xiao said with a smile, “Now that this matter is settled, we can't stay here for long. Since we have our territory and treasures guarding it, it's time for us to leave. Dao Brother Mu, please use your divine art and send us out.”
Divine King Zu provoked, “Do you still need to rest, Celestial Venerable Mu?”
Qin Mu agreed straightforwardly and sat down.
Divine King Zu's face turned black. He had originally thought that Qin Mu would force himself to send them out, exhausting his vital qi and damaging his cultivation. Never did he expect this brat to agree so readily.
“Although this Celestial Venerable Mu is young, he is as shameless as me. I can't underestimate him!” Divine King Zu's eye revealed a hint of admiration.
 The pronoun used here is 祂(ta) which is the third person pronoun for a divine being. Since I don't capitalise god in this, I didn't feel it was necessary to capitalise 'her' either.
