Celestial Venerable Huo had come to this god city and appeared behind them. He had clearly heard their conversation!
What shocked Qin Mu even more was that Celestial Venerable Huo had long known that Bai Yujing was the reincarnation of South Deity Zhu Que!
Celestial Venerable Huo raised his hand, signaling for Bai Yujing to stand up. However, he didn't look at her. Instead, his gaze landed on Qin Mu, his expression indifferent.
Qin Mu's expression turned cold.
"I know that Heavenly Master Bai Yujing is the reincarnation of South Deity's soul, but because she's a human, I don't mind."
Celestial Venerable Huo said indifferently, "I killed South Deity, and her soul was suppressed in the Hall of Fragrance. Celestial Venerable Mu, your actions have made me despise you even more. I could have killed Bai Yujing because of South Deity's soul, but I didn't. You, on the other hand, killed an Emperor's Throne practitioner of my human race just because of an evil ancient god!"
Qin Mu walked away and said indifferently, "I'm not Celestial Venerable Yun, nor am I Celestial Venerable Yue. Celestial Venerable Ling, they believed you, so they died. People who walk different paths cannot work together."
Celestial Venerable Huo said coldly, "Stop!"
Qin Mu ignored him and continued to leave.
Celestial Venerable Huo's voice came from behind him, and he sneered. "Do you know how many times I've advised Celestial Venerable Yun? I've advised him no less than a hundred times! I advised him not to go against heaven's will, not to go against the general trend, and not to disregard the lives of humans because of his ambition!"
"What about him?"
"He's stubborn! He must resist and make the human race the supreme ruler of all races! However, he also agrees with me!"
"When I went to kill him, he told me that he understood what I had done!"
Qin Mu stopped in his tracks and turned his head over with a smile that was yet not a smile. "What about Crimson Emperor and Celestial Venerable Ling? What about Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling? When you killed Celestial Venerable Yun, you were at the front. When Crimson Emperor killed Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling, you were at the front."
Celestial Venerable Huo snorted. "Crimson Emperor, I didn't kill him. Light Emperor overestimated his own abilities! After Celestial Venerable Yun's chaos, the human race in the Primordial Realm has already suffered a huge blow to their vitality. It wasn't easy for them to recover, but Light Emperor still wants to rebel. He deserves to die! I was the one who saw his weakness and let Son of Heaven Yin kill him! As for Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling…"
His expression dimmed, and he shook his head. "Although they are my Dao friends, they also made the same mistake as Celestial Venerable Yun. They actually wanted to overturn the heavens, and their crimes deserve death! However, I still left Celestial Venerable Yue alive. Celestial Venerable Ling's death was an accident, and I didn't want to kill her."
Qin Mu laughed loudly, and his laughter sounded like he was crying. "What a good idea to leave Celestial Venerable Yue's life behind. How sanctimonious and compassionate! When you went to find Celestial Venerable Yue to discuss how to deal with Mother Earth, I was there! Your plan with Celestial Venerable Xiao was instructed by Celestial Venerable Hao, right? When you got rid of Mother Earth, you attacked at the same time to get rid of Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling!"
His face was as cold as ice as he said coldly, "Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling were able to survive because I used countless dreams to enter the path and simulate it. Only then did I choose the only way out! You actually dare to flatter yourself in front of me, saying it's your credit!"
He fell silent, and after a moment, he said bitterly, "You are no longer the Celestial Venerable Huo of the past."
Celestial Venerable Huo was expressionless as he said woodenly, "You don't understand me. Celestial Venerable Yue, Celestial Venerable Ling, and the others also don't understand me. Hehe, only Celestial Venerable Yun understands me and knows that I'm doing this for the human race…"
"If Celestial Venerable Yun sees your Southern Heavenly World, the sight of the human race would make him jump out of the coffin by you."
Qin Mu raised his head with a bleak expression. "You're wrong, he doesn't understand you. From the start to the end, he couldn't see that your so-called doing this for the human race is actually for your own position and your own life."
The flame wheel behind Celestial Venerable Huo's head swayed, and his mind was in a mess. He suddenly smiled and said, "It's fine if Celestial Venerable Yun doesn't understand me, I don't need his understanding. There's only one person in this world who understands me, and that's Celestial Venerable Yu."
Qin Mu gave him a cold glance and turned to leave.
'Only Celestial Venerable Yu will understand me!'
Celestial Venerable Huo's voice came from behind him. "Only heroes of the human race like him, the most outstanding existence of the human race, can understand me! If he doesn't die, the person who supports me the most is him! I don't need the understanding of you selfish people. As long as he understands me, that's enough!"
Qin Mu sneered and walked away.
Celestial Venerable Huo watched him leave and sneered. "Only Celestial Venerable Yu is my Dao friend… Bai Yujing, you can be at ease. With me around, Celestial Venerable Mu won't dare to mess around."
With his hands behind his back, he said solemnly, "Even though he is reckless, he still knows his limits. It's best if he doesn't touch you. If he dares to touch you, I will definitely kill him!"
Bai Yujing frowned slightly and said softly, "Celestial Venerable Huo, is it worth it to kill a human Celestial Venerable for a nobody like me?"
Celestial Venerable Huo turned to look at her and said seriously, "Celestial Venerable Mu is indeed talented, but the more such a person is, the greater the harm he will bring. You are different. Even though your divine soul is South Deity, you are dedicated to being a human and the celestial heavens. You are more at ease than him."
Bai Yujing smiled calmly. "Is it because I don't know how to reform or rebel?"
Celestial Venerable Huo nodded and said calmly, "If Celestial Venerable Mu doesn't lay his hands on you, I have no reason to lay my hands on him. However, from his actions, this person will definitely rebel in the future and put our human race in a life and death crisis. I can't let him do that, so I have to find a reason to get rid of him."
Bai Yujing nodded. "Therefore, his attempt to awaken the South Deity soul in my body was the reason why the Celestial Venerable killed him."
Celestial Venerable Huo revealed a smile. "As expected of Heavenly Teacher, you figured it out with just a hint."
He walked away.
Bai Yujing shuddered.
Celestial Venerable Huo looked straightforward, but he was actually very scheming. He had always known that he was the reincarnation of South Deity, but he had kept him around to deal with Qin Mu!
The reason he had kept him alive was to give Qin Mu a chance to 'make a mistake' and give him a reason to kill Qin Mu!
'Celestial Venerable Huo killed Celestial Venerable Yun, Light Emperor, Celestial Venerable Ling, and Celestial Venerable Yue for his ideal ideals. Could it be…'
Her gaze was complicated. Celestial Venerable Yue was her master. Even though she had lived for so many lifetimes, she had always treated Celestial Venerable Yue as the person closest to her. And Celestial Venerable Huo had actually laid his hands on Celestial Venerable Yue for his philosophy!
'Does Celestial Venerable Huo not know that if they work together, even if they can't overthrow the celestial heavens, they can still fight equally?'
She looked at Celestial Venerable Huo's departing back and thought to herself, 'Celestial Venerable Huo, you protect South Heaven and the humans there. Could your South Heaven be so perfect that even these few Celestial Venerables can't compare to it? Have you really found a path to solve the problem of the humans not being bullied and growing stronger?'
She had an idea. She wanted to take a look at Southern Heaven.
"After quelling the Great Void's chaos, I'll go to South Heaven… No!"
With a thought, she took a step into the sky, and there was still Bai Yujing in the city, managing the battle.
Bai Yujing used her space divine art to hide herself and flew out. "Let's go to Southern Heaven to take a look at Celestial Venerable Huo's perfect world!"
