Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1272 - The Grand Emperor Has No Head
Qin Mu walked out of the Land of the Great Void and didn't walk far before arriving at the entrance.
He looked back and saw the Land of the Great Void under his feet.
The crumbling void was destroyed, and the Land of the Great Void was exposed to the celestial heavens. They couldn't defend it, so they could only rely on the Void Bridge to stall for time. However, they didn't know how long they could stall for.
From the entrance of the Great Void to the celestial heavens, it would take a few months with his leg strength.
The Great Void's geography was special, and it was impossible to use the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge to transmit supplies. Therefore, it would take the celestial heavens' army half a year to a year to arrive here.
However, for Celestial Venerables, they only needed a few days to travel at full speed before they could head straight for the Great Void!
This was dangerous!
In the past, Founding Emperor could use the safety of the celestial heavens to threaten the other Celestial Venerables because the celestial heavens were too far from the Great Void. It would take a long time for the Celestial Venerables to travel back and forth.
And now, the journey was much shorter. The Land of the Great Void could face the danger of being destroyed at any moment!
"Guarding the Void Bridge still requires Celestial Venerable Yue. After all, the three rooms on the other side of the Void Bridge were created by her."
Qin Mu frowned. Celestial Venerable Yue's injuries hadn't healed, and she had broken her legs. Qin Mu couldn't bear to let her face such danger.
'Tai Shi might be able to heal Celestial Venerable Yue's Dao injuries, but Tai Shi's conditions must be extremely harsh. Furthermore, he hasn't been born yet…'
He frowned. Ancient God Tai Shi had been imprisoned in Clear Sun Hall by Celestial Emperor's Grand Primordium for so many years, and he had become extremely cautious. At the same time, he was also extremely secular. He would definitely use this as a threat and offer conditions that Qin Mu couldn't accept.
It was almost impossible to persuade him to come into being and heal Celestial Venerable Yue!
"I should go to the ancestral court and see if Grandpa Apothecary's current medical skills can deal with Dao injuries."
Qin Mu made up his mind. He took out Celestial Venerable Yue's lantern and walked towards the celestial heavens. With this lantern, he would be able to reach the celestial heavens in a few days.
On the way to the celestial heavens, his heart suddenly stirred. 'I wonder how the Grand Emperor is doing…'
Both the Grand Emperor and Celestial Venerable Hao were injured, and his injuries were definitely not lighter than Celestial Venerable Hao's. In fact, they were even worse!
Heavenly Lady Qiang was also severely injured, and her injuries weren't inferior to the Grand Emperor's!
'There's no Ultimate Void in the Great Void, only in the outside world. Once I'm in the outside world, the Grand Emperor's Great Overarching Consciousness Heavenly Imprint in the Ultimate Void will be able to come down. My consciousness cultivation should recover quickly, but the Dao injuries on my body will probably heal so easily in a short time… Wait a minute!'
Qin Mu suddenly became alert. 'Why did I suddenly think of the Grand Emperor? There's a reason for this, and so is my thought! My consciousness is now one of the few strong practitioners in the world. The reason why I suddenly had this thought is probably…'
The corners of his eyes twitched, and he immediately realized that he had unknowingly deviated from the path to the celestial heavens. The only thing that could influence his judgment and cause him to deviate from the path to the celestial heavens without him noticing was an existence whose consciousness was far above his!
Qin Mu made a prompt decision and executed Celestial Venerable Yue's lantern. The power in the lantern burst forth and transformed into a string of light that was dozens of miles long!
He hadn't cultivated Celestial Venerable Yue's Dao of Space, nor had he received the teachings of Celestial Venerable Yue or Bai Yujing. He had only relied on his own experience. Therefore, the length and power of the light strings weren't as spectacular as when Bai Yujing executed them!
After the lantern was activated, the heart of Qin Mu's brows flashed. With two thumps, Celestial Empress and Mistress Yuanmu's coffins flew out. With two thumps, the coffins opened up.
His consciousness burst forth, and the two ancient gods that looked almost identical took a step forward. They stepped out of their coffins, and their sleeves fluttered in the wind as divine light flowed!
At the same time, he used his consciousness to control the two goddesses of the Ruins of End and looked around vigilantly.
Even though the battle power of the two goddesses of the Ruins of End couldn't reach the level of Celestial Emperor, Grand Primordium, and Heaven Duke, Earth Count, and Mother Earth, their abilities were above the four deities of the ancient gods!
After Qin Mu used his consciousness to control Celestial Empress and her sister's corporeal body, the vertical eye in the heart of his brows opened up, and the egg of Tai Shi flew out.
He raised his right hand and lifted the huge egg with one hand.
From the moment he came to his senses to the moment he completed all of this, it was all done in an instant!
"Grand Emperor, come out and negotiate!" Qin Mu swept his consciousness around and said solemnly.
The space was silent.
This place was far from the celestial heavens and the Great Void. There was no heaven above or earth below.
Whether it was from the celestial heavens or the Great Void, they were all about the same distance.
This distance was precisely the center point that the Grand Emperor had chosen to kill Celestial Venerable Hao.
The Grand Emperor made it impossible for Celestial Venerable Hao to escape the Great Void, and it was also impossible for him to escape the Great Void.
And now, the distance Qin Mu was at made it impossible for him to escape back to the Great Void or the celestial heavens!
When Qin Mu spoke, he didn't say anything for a long time.
Qin Mu sneered. Just as he was about to head to the celestial heavens under the escort of Celestial Empress and her sister, he suddenly heard blood-curdling cries coming from the dark space. There were also mournful sounds.
"Grand Emperor, just come out and see me. Why are you acting mysterious?"
Qin Mu sneered and saw a beam of light coming from the dark space. The beam of light was getting closer. It was a strange man and woman wearing colorful clothes carrying a coffin in the sky.
The faces of the men and women were smeared with cosmetics, and their faces were snow white. However, black spots were smeared on their cheeks, and their dead fish eyes were open. There were no pupils in their eyes, and they were all white.
There were also men and women in green who were blowing their trumpets. Their music was bleak and miserable, causing people to shed silent tears when they heard it.
This was a funeral procession.
It was just that there were no stars in this vast space. For such a funeral procession to suddenly appear, their attire was so strange that it made people's hair stand on end.
"Celestial Venerable Mu, look at the name written on the coffin." The voice of Tai Shi came from the egg.
Qin Mu sneered and said loudly, "Grand Emperor, you can't do anything to me, so you are making these useless things laughable! If you want coffins, I have two of them. They are all top-grade coffins!"
The funeral procession stopped, and the strange-looking men and women turned their heads to look at him. They said in unison, "Your coffins have Celestial Empress' sister buried, and they already have a master. Our coffins are ready to bury Celestial Venerable Mu!"
Qin Mu laughed loudly. "Grand Emperor, stop acting mysterious! Show yourself!"
"Celestial Venerable Mu, I have long appeared, but you didn't notice."
A grand voice rang out, and only then did Qin Mu see an incomparably huge shadow sitting in the dark space in front of him. Because there was no starlight in the space, it couldn't light up the shadow.
That incomparably huge black shadow sat there with no head on its neck!
Suddenly, Qin Mu's feet trembled, and he lowered his head to take a look. He saw a black shadow under his feet, and the undulating fingerprints were like a mountain range that stretched into the distance.
It was a palm, the only palm of the Grand Emperor.
Unknowingly, he had been lured to the Grand Emperor's face and was walking in his palm!
"Celestial Venerable Mu, you want to negotiate? Talk about what?" A grand voice came from the headless body of the Grand Emperor.
