Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1269 - Thick-faced and Black-hearted

Suddenly, someone choked on his throat and coughed repeatedly. Soon after, the gazes of all the gods landed on him. That person suppressed his cough and his face turned red.

Celestial Venerable Hao broke the silence and said while panting, "It's all thanks to Celestial Venerable Mu's help. Otherwise, the consequences would have been unimaginable. I'm afraid I would have died in the hands of the Grand Emperor."

Qin Mu said weakly, "Heaven helps the worthy. Celestial Venerable Hao isn't someone who dies early. I had to use all my strength to block the Grand Emperor and save Celestial Venerable's life."

Celestial Venerable Hao said weakly, "I'm deeply sorry for implicating you, Dao Brother. I have no way to repay you. From today onwards, I'll do my best to serve you."

Qin Mu was so excited that a sickly red color appeared on his face. "You're too serious, too serious! Celestial Venerable Hao is the head of the empire that controls the celestial heavens, and he's thinking for the celestial heavens. How can I not risk my life to save him?"

All the divine generals and Celestial Venerables looked at each other in dismay.

Suddenly, Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Hao coughed violently in unison, looking like they could die at any moment.

Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Xu also didn't look good, and they started coughing.

"Four Celestial Venerables suffered heavy injuries at the same time. What a troubled time," someone whispered.

Qin Mu roused his spirit and said loudly, "That's not true! That old thief Qin Ye of Carefree Village and that old woman Lang Wo are both severely injured! Now is the best time for my celestial heavens to make a name for ourselves! I shall personally lead the army and take the head of that old thief Qin Ye to serve the celestial heavens!" After saying that, he coughed violently again.

The four heavenly kings, the four great heavenly teachers, and the four deities all coughed. Bai Yujing sighed. "This cough seems to be contagious…"

Celestial Venerable Huo asked with concern, "Brother Hao, are your injuries serious? Celestial Venerable Xu and I went to save you, but we didn't expect Founding Emperor and Lang Wo to attack as well. We couldn't protect you in time."

"I won't die."

Celestial Venerable Hao's face was pale, and he said indifferently, "I survived and planned to live in seclusion to recuperate without alarming everyone. I didn't expect someone in our celestial heavens to betray us and actually dare to harm me while I was recuperating. Hehe, what a good plan."

Everyone was astonished, and their gazes landed on Qin Mu.

Qin Mu seemed to feel nothing as he picked up the dishes on the table and placed them into his mouth.

As for Bai Yujing, Xi Tianjun, and Red Deity Qi Xiayu, even though their expressions remained unchanged, they couldn't help feeling anxious.

When they attacked Celestial Venerable Hao in the dark valley of the Great Void Devil Domain that day, the three of them were also present, and they all made their moves. They didn't know if Celestial Venerable Hao had noticed anything.

Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Xu remained calm. Celestial Venerable Xu said, "Brother Hao, do you know who killed you?"

How could Celestial Venerable Hao say it?

By mentioning the Heaven Monarch and the rest, he was forcing Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Xu to kill him. He naturally wouldn't be so stupid.

"The person who killed me hid his true identity."

Celestial Venerable Hao said indifferently, "Maybe we will find out what they are up to in the future. However, my injuries are very serious now, so I have no time to ask about this."

Qin Mu suddenly put down his chopsticks and said in astonishment, "When I rescued Brother Hao, I was also in the Great Void Demon Territory and recognized the traitor who murdered Brother Hao!"

Everyone's gaze fell on him.

Qin Mu's gaze landed on the second heavenly master, Meng Yungui. His face was pale, and he hurriedly shrunk his head back.

Qin Mu's gaze moved away from him and landed on the fourth heavenly master, Zhu Shaoping. Zhu Shaoping's face was ashen.

Qin Mu looked at the other heavenly kings and heavenly teachers with a smile, and everyone's hearts rose to their throats.

The divine generals that could be ranked on top of the pageant were all existences on the Numinous Sky Realm. At this moment, they actually kept quiet out of fear, and no one dared to look him in the eye!

Tai Shi hiding in the third eye in the heart of Qin Mu's brows couldn't help exclaiming in admiration, "To be able to create clouds with a flip of his hand, to be able to create rain with a flip of his hand, his scheming and methods are all top-notch existences! Although Celestial Venerable Mu is young and his abilities aren't high, he can't be underestimated!"

Suddenly, Qin Mu's gaze moved to Celestial Venerable Huo's face. His eyes were like fire as he looked at him without saying a word.


Qin Mu clapped his hands and laughed. "The Great Void Devil Domain is too dark. I didn't see their faces clearly, so I don't dare to talk nonsense."

Everyone heaved a sigh of relief and secretly turned their heads away to wipe away the cold sweat on their foreheads.

Celestial Venerable Hao glanced at Qin Mu and said indifferently, "Celestial Venerable Mu doesn't know who the person who assassinated me is, but there are people who are helping others secretly. They can't escape my eyes and ears."

He took a deep breath and said solemnly, "Yin Chaojin!"

Son of Heaven Yin's face was pale. He stood up from his seat and bowed. "What can Celestial Venerable teach me?"

Celestial Venerable Hao slapped the table and said coldly, "The evil thief chased me for 600,000 miles while I was severely injured. Why didn't you save me when we reached your Nether City?"

Son of Heaven Yin twisted his neck and protested, "I can't save him! I control the army of the Northern Heaven Mingdu and oversee the Great Void's Youdu. There's a thief, Qin Fengqing, and Yama King, leading the army to attack. If the Great Void's Youdu falls, all the soldiers of the celestial heavens in the Great Void will be exposed to the butcher's knife of the thief! Let alone Celestial Venerables, even Celestial Emperor can't be saved by me!"

"How dare you!" Celestial Venerable Hao was so angry that he was trembling. He slammed the table and shouted angrily, and a sweet taste came from his throat. It was as if he was about to spit out a mouthful of blood, but he swallowed it back down.

Son of Heaven Yin straightened his neck and said, "I have been ordered to guard the Great Void and Youdu, so I naturally have to look at the big picture! If Celestial Venerable is petty and holds a grudge over this matter, I will report this to His Majesty Celestial Emperor and ask His Majesty to make a decision! If Celestial Venerable wants to punish me here, I won't accept it!"

Celestial Venerable Hao was unable to restrain his anger. He raised his hand and struck out.


The sky changed color on the pageant, and the wind and clouds swirled furiously. Space shattered, and Celestial Venerable Hao's palm was majestic. When he stretched out his hand, it was as if the ancient Celestial Emperor had sent Earth Count back to Youdu with one palm and shattered Divine King Gong Yun with one palm!

Son of Heaven Yin gave a furious roar and heard a loud rumble. Mingdu Heavenly Gate stood behind him, suppressing the waves in the surroundings.

His clothes fluttered backward, and the crown of his head exploded with a bang. His long hair was pulled back by the gale!

"I won't sit back and do nothing!"

Son of Heaven Yin roared furiously, and the four celestial palaces behind him leaped out. Four celestial palaces also appeared in Mingdu Heavenly Gate, forming the apparitions of eight celestial palaces!

Son of Heaven Yin's aura rose drastically as he faced Celestial Venerable Hao's palm. He shouted, "Celestial Venerable Hao, you are severely injured, and you want to take me down? I'll kill you and become Celestial Venerable Yin!"

Qin Mu narrowed his eyes and raised his wine cup to drink. He transmitted his consciousness to the egg of Tai Shi in the heart of his brows and asked, "Has Tai Su made his move?"

The Grand Prime in the egg said, "That's right. Celestial Venerable Hao doesn't have such powerful abilities yet. He has at most recovered nine celestial palaces, but his palm seems to have the power of eighteen celestial palaces. Tai Su is indeed helping him secretly."

Celestial Venerable Hao's palm landed, and a world-shaking explosion rang out. The front hall of the great hall was blown away, and a huge handprint that was thousands of miles long smacked Heaven Yin along with Mingdu Heavenly Gate!

At the banquet in the hall, all the god generals and Celestial Venerables couldn't help but be frightened.

Celestial Venerable Hao retracted his hand and said sickly, "My injuries are still too severe. I didn't manage to kill this fellow."

The hall was silent.

Qin Mu bit his chopsticks and clapped his hands in delight. He said in a muffled voice, "Well done! If I wasn't heavily injured, I would definitely beat up Son of Heaven Yin!"

Celestial Venerable Hao glanced at him again and suppressed his anger from being stolen by him. He raised his cup and said, "It's not worth getting angry over him. Everyone, let me toast everyone."

The two Celestial Venerables, the three deities, the four heavenly teachers, the four heavenly kings, and the generals didn't dare to say anything. They raised their cups and drank the wine in one gulp.

Celestial Venerable Hao put down his wine cup, and he saw a long rainbow flying over from outside. Son of Heaven Yin was covered in blood, and he fell to his knees, kowtowing and crawling. He dragged the bloodstains to the pageant in the hall and choked, "Chaojin knows his mistake! Please forgive me, Celestial Venerable!"

Celestial Venerable Hao snorted.

Celestial Venerable Huo raised his wine cup and stuffed it into Son of Heaven Yin's hands. He said warmly, "Underworld Emperor, go and offer Brother Hao a toast to apologize. Brother Hao, Brother Yin has a heavy responsibility on him, so it's best not to take it to heart."

Celestial Venerable Hao's expression softened.

Son of Heaven Yin knelt down and raised his cup. Celestial Venerable Hao's expression softened, and he picked up his cup. "Alright, I know your duty. It's only right that you don't save me. I won't blame you anymore. Stand up." After saying that, he drank all the wine in his cup.

Son of Heaven Yin wailed and knelt on the ground, unwilling to get up.

Celestial Venerable Hao was also moved. He struggled to get up and went forward to help him up. He said with tears in his eyes, "You are my sworn brother, and the reason why I'm angry with you is because of our friendship here. Yet, you just watched me die. However, I now understand that I shouldn't have injured you…"

Son of Heaven Yin choked and said, "I said those words out of anger, Celestial Venerable, don't take it to heart."

Both of them supported each other and sat down.

All the gods present wiped their tears.


Qin Mu, however, laughed loudly and stood up to clap his hands in praise. "The two of you have moved heaven and earth and made ghosts and gods cry. If this gets out, it will be a wonderful story in my celestial heavens!"

Celestial Venerable Hao and Son of Heaven Yin's faces turned black, and they resisted the urge to kill him immediately.

"Why isn't Celestial Venerable Mu dead yet?"
