Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1274 - Luring The Trouble Away
Qin Mu's expression was grim. Under the protection of Celestial Empress and her sister's corporeal body, he carried the egg away.
The egg of Tai Shi whispered, "How strong will the Grand Emperor be when he gets the Origin Stone?"
"I don't know. However, in order to get rid of the Grand Emperor, all the ancient gods worked together. In the end, it was Divine King Gong Yun who shattered the Tai Chu Origin Stone in the heart of his brows."
Qin Mu put away the corporeal body of Celestial Empress and her sister and pondered. "Even so, the Grand Emperor didn't die. It was only when Celestial Venerable Yun plotted against him that his corporeal body was finally killed."
Tai Shi was silent for a moment before saying, "In that case, now that he has the Origin Stone, is there anyone who can subdue him…"
Qin Mu flipped his palm, and the raw stone appeared in his palm. He stared at it and said in a low voice, "Yes. The raw stone in my hand isn't complete to begin with. The portion I gave to the Grand Emperor only took up half of the original stone. The Grand Emperor isn't at his peak. That person can still restrain him."
The Grand Prime in the egg was slightly stunned, but Qin Mu didn't say who it was. Instead, he stuffed the egg back into the Qin word land.
A day later, Qin Mu arrived at the Northern Heavenly Gate of the celestial heavens.
Outside the Northern Heavenly Gate, a huge army formed by the devils was ready to set off. In the lead was a dark celestial palace that was completely shrouded in darkness. Even light couldn't disperse the darkness.
"Celestial Venerable Mu!"
The owner of the dark celestial palace was the Primordial Realm's Demon Ancestor Mahakala. When he saw Qin Mu, he hurriedly came to welcome him.
Qin Mu didn't enter his dark celestial palace. Instead, he stood outside and asked, "Where is Mahakala going?"
Even though Mahakala had some grudges with him, he still treated him with respect and was rather polite. He said, "Celestial Venerable, the celestial heavens has sent an order for me to hurry to the Land of the Great Void. I've heard that a devil tide has erupted there, wreaking havoc in the world and causing the devils in my heart to dance wildly. As I'm the ancestor of the devils, I have a way of restraining the devils in my heart, so the celestial heavens ordered me to quell the rebellion."
Qin Mu muttered to himself for a moment.
As an Emperor's Throne Realm existence in the Primordial Realm, Mahakala's cultivation and abilities were extremely high. Furthermore, he was the ancestor of the devil race born in Youdu. He was born with the devil nature and devil qi of Youdu, so he had extraordinary abilities against the devils in the heart of the Great Void.
The celestial heavens had sent him to the Land of the Great Void because they saw him as a devil among devils.
Mahakala examined Qin Mu's expression. After a moment, he said, "Celestial Venerable, you know the Land of the Great Void like the back of your hand. I'm on my way here, may I know what you have to teach me?"
Qin Mu said, "There's indeed a piece of advice. You just have to deal with some heart devils at the back, there's no need to go to the frontlines. Son of Heaven Yin is fighting Son of Youdu in the Great Void. That Son of Youdu has remarkable abilities, and you are no match for him. If you go to the frontlines, you will definitely be harmed."
Mahakala expressed his thanks and said, "I will remember Celestial Venerable's words."
Qin Mu nodded and watched him lead the devil army away.
Not long later, Qin Mu came to Celestial Venerable Xiao's celestial palace.
The disciple guarding the gate quickly found Celestial Venerable Xiao and offered up the Tai Chu Origin Stone. "Celestial Venerable Mu ordered me to give this treasure to Celestial Venerable, saying that it was something I borrowed back then. Now that it's returned to its original owner, I hope Celestial Venerable doesn't take offense."
Celestial Venerable Xiao held the Origin Stone and said in astonishment, "He actually has such a kind heart and is willing to return this treasure to me? Could this brat have been enlightened?"
Celestial Venerable Xiao was also very happy that he had regained the Origin Stone. He put it away and said with a smile, "However, he still deducted some of it. He still has some selfish motives. What he stole back then wasn't just this. Where's Celestial Venerable Mu?"
That disciple said, "Celestial Venerable Mu has already left. Before he left, Celestial Venerable Mu asked me to tell you that the Grand Emperor has revived and snatched the remaining raw stones from him."
Celestial Venerable Xiao's face was as black as iron. With a shake of his hand, he threw out the Origin Stone in his hand and scolded angrily, "I was wondering how this fellow could be so kind, but it turns out that he was the one who lured the disaster onto me! Bastard! Damn it! Kill all nine generations!"
He was so angry that he laughed and scolded endlessly.
That disciple shrunk his head, not knowing what method Celestial Venerable Mu had used to make his master so furious.
Celestial Venerable Xiao stood up and paced back and forth with a grim expression.
He walked to the Tai Chu Origin Stone and hesitated for a moment before picking it up.
He had to get the Tai Chu Origin Stone no matter what. Even if he had to fight with the Grand Emperor, he wouldn't hesitate!
Qin Mu had sent the rest of the raw stones over because he wanted to create a conflict between him and the Grand Emperor. He wanted to use him to suppress the Grand Emperor. Even though he had seen through Qin Mu's plan, he had no choice but to go against the Grand Emperor according to Qin Mu's wishes.
"Rascal, you schemed against me. How ruthless, how evil!"
Celestial Venerable Xiao suddenly laughed and waved his hand to dismiss the disciple. He said in a low voice, "The Tai Chu Origin Stone has to be gathered no matter what. However, when the Origin Stone shattered, the other Origin Stones were nowhere to be found. These Origin Stones must have fallen into the hands of those old friends. They are also scheming against me, not wanting me to become the real Tai Chu and limit my power…"
He raised his head, and his gaze flickered. He said in a low voice, "The true Tai Chu is equivalent to my power and the power of the Grand Emperor. How can it be limited by a mere system of divine treasures and celestial palaces? How can it be limited by a mere Celestial Heavens Realm? It's a pity that part of the power of the Origin Stone and consciousness belongs to the masters of creation and the Grand Emperor. Even if I find all the Origin Stones, I won't be able to reach perfection. The Grand Emperor even schemed against me and made the masters of creation sacrifice me, cutting off my method of refining the Origin Stone to absorb its power. He couldn't let me grow into a true Tai Chu…"
"I've been thinking of a solution all these years, and I've found a way to kill all the masters of creation and let their consciousnesses return to heaven and earth."
Celestial Venerable Xiao looked at the Origin Stone in his hand. "Capturing the Grand Emperor, refining the Grand Emperor and Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven, these are the second. Gather all the Origin Stones and refine the Origin Stone, these are the third. If I can do these three steps, I will be the real Tai Chu."
He couldn't hide his excitement as he muttered, "The grudge between me and the Grand Emperor has lasted from the primordial era until now. Now that part of the Origin Stone is in my hands and the other part is in his, the time for us to settle our grudge is probably close! I'm really looking forward to it…"
Qin Mu returned to the Primordial Realm from the celestial heavens and Eternal Peace.
Without the Tai Chu Origin Stone, he felt that his consciousness had lost its original nimbleness. Even though his consciousness cultivation was still there, the power and intensity of his consciousness explosion was much weaker than before.
'The longer I use the Tai Chu Origin Stone to cultivate, the deeper my relationship with Celestial Emperor Tai Chu will become. It might not be a bad thing to give this Origin Stone away.' He let out a shaky breath, but he still felt a little regretful.
"I still have a piece of the Taiji Origin Stone. Since I don't have the Tai Chu Origin Stone, I wonder how it will be used to replace the pupil of the eye?"
He made up his mind and immediately took out the Taiji Origin Stone, planning to stuff it into the opening of the Qin word land.
There was a huge hole in the center of Qin word land that was like the pupil of an eye. The Tai Chu Origin Stone that was originally stuffed inside was now empty, and the power of his divine eyes had also been greatly reduced.
The ancient god in the egg of Tai Shi said with a smile, "You just got rid of the Tai Chu Origin Stone, and you're planning to use the Tai Chu Origin Stone again? The ancient god in the Tai Chu Origin Stone mine hasn't been dug out. He has absorbed the power of the mine over the years and is very powerful. You can use his Origin Stone to raise your strength, but you will probably form a grudge with him!"
"Dao Brother Tai Shi, what you said makes sense."
Qin Mu gave it some thought, and a burst of magic power flew out. It swept up the egg of Tai Shi and stuffed it into the opening of the Qin word land.
The egg of Tai Shi was stuck at the opening and couldn't move. He said angrily, "Celestial Venerable Mu, you are setting a grudge against me!"
