Qin Mu boarded the ship and returned to Eternal Peace along with everyone else. He first went to meet Mute and Blind and told them about Ancestral Court. Both their eyes sparked, with Blind's eyes shining brighter. They were about to head to Ancestral Court immediately.
Qin Mu promptly stopped them and said, “There are many precious herbs there, so we have to go get Grandpa Apothecary. Furthermore, that treasure land is the number one land of Ancestral Court. It must have strong practitioners guarding it to prevent the strong practitioners of the ten Celestial Venerables from taking it away. Hence, I plan to invite the past human emperors of Human Emperor Hall to guard it. The Ancestral Court is quite far away and dangerous. When the time comes, we can go together and look after each other.”
Only then did the two elders endure it.
Ling Yuxiu ordered people to immediately contact Apothecary and First Ancestor Human Emperor, “They will still need a few days to come here, so wait a few days.”
Qin Mu took out Saint Woodcutter's letter and silently executed Soul Guide. After a moment, he put away the letter, took Celestial Venerable Yue's lantern, and left.
He had already located where Saint Woodcutter is. If he searched there, he could find Fengdu.
The Primordial Realm was extremely vast, and Qin Mu advanced whilst carrying the lantern. After walking for half a day, he finally reached the source of the Surging River.
Over here, the Surging River was no longer the Surging River, but the Celestial River. It flowed out from the various heavens of the Primordial Realm and gathered together, floating upwards. From the Primordial Realm towards the outside of Celestial Heavens, and then to the Four Extremities.
Qin Mu walked to the source of the Surging River and looked around. He saw that the steep cliffs that had once stretched across the north and south of the Great Ruins had been separated into countless sections. The broken cliffs stretched from the south to the north of the Primordial Realm.
He carried the lantern and walked forward. Not long later, his figure suddenly flashed and vanished from the Primordial Realm.
At the same time, in the Celestial Palace on the Primordial Tree, Celestial Venerable Xiao's clay sculpture suddenly moved. The Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu outside the Celestial Palace immediately opened his eyes and glanced towards where Qin Mu had vanished!
His gaze pierced through the layers of the void and observed the myriad heavens, but he couldn't find any trace of Qin Mu.
“Could this brat have gone to Youdu?”
The Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu turned his gaze towards Youdu. The clay statue in the Celestial Palace was actually extremely intricate: with its brows knitted, he said, “It's fine that he went to Eternal Peace to recruit soldiers and buy horses. But to run around like this, he must have some ulterior motives. Celestial Venerable Mu, why can't you just be a obedient chess piece…”
The Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu's gaze swept into Youdu, and it was like two brilliant pillars of light that were incomparably thick. It swept through the darkness, and when it didn't find Qin Mu, it swept towards the Earth Count's corporeal body in Youdu.
At this moment, a paper boat sailed over leisurely. On the paper boat, an elder held a lantern and shone it on the face of the Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu. The clay statue's eyes suddenly turned black, and it became blind.
That elder pinched a yellow joss paper and stuck it on the Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu.
When the eyes of the clay statue recovered, he raised his head and saw a yellow joss paper stuck on the heart of the Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu's brows. On it were writings of Youdu that looked like scribbles.
“Celestial Venerable You!”
The clay statue flew into a rage. Celestial Venerable You's move was extremely powerful. This single piece of talisman paper sealed his Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu, and closed all the apertures so that he couldn't control this Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu anymore.
“This talisman can't be removed so easily. I have to be careful.”
He flew up and got close to the heart of the Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu's brows. He roused the power in the clay statue and cautiously stretched out his hand towards the yellow joss paper.
At that moment, the yellow joss papers in the heart of the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu's brows suddenly flew up. They were actually two yellow joss papers!
The other talisman paper stuck onto the heart of the clay statue's brows!
The clay statue instantly felt all parts of its body being sealed. No matter if it was vital qi or divine consciousness, they couldn't leave its body to transform into divine arts.
Not only that, he also felt that his body was incomparably heavy, and he was falling from the sky uncontrollably!
After a long time, the sound of a heavy object hitting the ground rang out. The clay statue was shattered into pieces and couldn't be fixed!
At this moment, the divine consciousness and vital qi in the clay statue finally felt their freedom restored. The yellow joss paper flew up, and Celestial Venerable You's cold voice came from inside, “Don't provoke Youdu…”
The yellow joss paper vanished.
At the same time, the yellow joss paper on the forehead of Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu also fell off and vanished.
“Celestial Venerable You!” The Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu clenched his fists tightly, but he didn't break into Youdu.
At this moment, Qin Mu arrived at Heavenly Yin World.
Ever since the Primordial Realm broke through its seal, Heavenly Yin World lost contact with the outside world, and the crack that was originally connected to the Great Ruins also vanished.
Qin Mu walked into Heavenly Yin World and looked from afar. He saw numerous divine arts practitioners and gods of Eternal Peace constructing god cities here and they were thriving.
Ever since Heavenly Yin World was discovered by Qin Mu, Emperor Yanfeng and the former Imperial Preceptor, Jiang Baigui, had sent some divine arts practitioners and commoners of Eternal Peace to live here. They were also helping Goddess of Heavenly Yin construct Heavenly Yin World.
After all, there was no one else around other than Goddess of Heavenly Yin herself.
She was no longer an ancient god, but she held powers equivalent to one. Most importantly, she had escaped the shackles of her Great Dao and could cultivate other Great Daos.
Of course, at that time, Saint Woodcutter, King Yama, Xu Shenghua, and the rest were invited by Qin Mu to solve the Great Dao runes of Heavenly Yin World. This also helped Goddess of Heavenly Yin comprehend her own Great Dao divine art and solve the problem of the black soul sand and starved corpses in Heavenly Yin World.
The divine arts practitioners and commoners that Emperor Yanfeng had sent from Eternal Peace were also here to develop the divine arts of Heavenly Yin World. No matter if it was Eternal Peace or Goddess of Heavenly Yin, they would all benefit greatly.
However, when the Eternal Peace Calamity erupted, this place wasn't affected, so it was more or less a blessing.
“Back then, because I had revived Goddess of Heavenly Yin and we quelled the chaos in Heavenly Yin Word, as well as solved the runes of the Heavenly Yin World's Great Dao, Goddess of Heavenly Yin gave each of us a pearl.”
Qin Mu looked from afar and saw Goddess of Heavenly Yin, sitting in the sky above the Heavenly Yin Sea, cultivating. All the broken souls in the world returned to Heavenly Yin World, and they were all under the control of Goddess of Heavenly Yin's divine art.
At this moment, Goddess of Heavenly Yin's cultivation had clearly increased drastically, and her abilities were becoming stronger. From afar, Qin Mu could see a Celestial Palace that was like black sand sitting behind her. It was extremely magnificent!
“Goddess of Heavenly Yin used her own Great Dao divine light to refine seven precious beads and gave them to Imperial Preceptor, First Ancestor, King Yama, Xu Shenghua, me, Yan Jingjing, and Teacher Woodcutter. She said that no matter who it was, as long as they came with the precious beads, she would do her best to help!”
Qin Mu revealed a smile and walked towards the sea of Heavenly Yin. He thought to himself, “I should have thought that the reason why Fengdu could avoid the pursuit of the four deities of Celestial Heavens was because Woodcutter or King Yama used a precious bead and asked her to hide Fengdu. However, I have never used this precious bead before and it slipped from my mind.”
Goddess of Heavenly Yin sensed his arrival and woke up from her meditative state. She turned to look at Qin Mu.
She stood up and divine light floated around her body. The light sometimes transformed into a silky satchel and at other times, it became a ring behind her head. Her hair buns were very pretty but an indescribably elegance was infused in the air as black soul sand fluttered around her.
“My 16th celestial palace, Heavenly Yin Celestial Palace. There's hope!”
Qin Mu laughed loudly and walked forward. He bowed and greeted, “Dao friend, how have you been?”
