Tales of Herding Gods
Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1288 - Big Business
It was fine if there were only one or two strange beasts, but there was actually a large group of strange beasts here that confused him.
The void beasts dominated the ancestral court, so it was impossible for any living creatures to survive here. Where did these strange beasts come from?
'Celestial Venerable Mu knows about this huge beast?'
Xiu Hongsu looked at the strange beast that rose from the swamp and smiled. "Heavenly Consort said that this kind of huge beast is called Que Qi. It's more docile. Other than Que Qi, there are also other kinds of huge beasts that appear in the ancestral court."
Qin Mu's curiosity was aroused, and he asked, "Other huge beasts have also appeared? Aren't these huge beasts extinct? Why would they still appear?"
Xiu Hong Su said, "I don't know about this. However, Heavenly Consort might know about it. I also asked her, but she didn't say."
Qin Mu's gaze flickered, and he thought to himself, 'Could it be that the two ancient gods in the taiji mine used the yin and yang qi to create all kinds of huge beasts in the ancestral court? However, looking at the way those two ancient gods handled things, they are petty and stingy. They shouldn't have exhausted their own strength to create so many huge beasts, right?'
If it wasn't done by the ancient gods in the taiji mine, where did these huge beasts come from?
Along the way, Qin Mu saw all kinds of huge beasts. There were huge beasts that had mountains growing on their backs. When they walked, the mountain wind blew past the mountains and caves on their backs, giving off whistling sounds.
There was also someone lying on the mountain peak with wings spread out for a hundred miles. When they saw their prey, they would spread their wings and glide in the sky to pounce on their prey.
If they missed, these people would limp and use their claws under their wings to hook onto the mountain again.
He also saw great vicious beasts, wind smelling beasts, and even a Tai Pu!
The Bodhi Behemoth was an extremely terrifying creature. Its battle prowess wasn't inferior to the void beast, and it was even stronger!
Shu Jun, one of the three primordial kings, had subdued a giant bodhi beast. The battle power of that giant bodhi beast wasn't inferior to that of the void mother beast!
However, the Bodhi Behemoth was clearly extinct!
"It's fine to create one or two behemoths, but to create so many behemoths, it's definitely going to take their lives! These behemoths weren't created by them!"
Finally, they came to the Tai Shi mine.
Qin Mu got off the treasure carriage and walked into the mine under Xiu Hong Su's lead.
The depths of this mine were filled with the aura of the Grand Primordium. It was dense and undulating, and the aura of the Grand Primordium was extremely dangerous. Qin Mu saw some gods actually transforming into existences that were like ghosts. Their bodies turned incorporeal and transparent.
This was the result of being assimilated by Taishi Qi after coming into contact with it for a long time!
The Dao of Tai Shi had a form but no substance. Because these gods had been in contact with the Qi of Tai Shi for a long time, they had already lost their corporeal bodies. Their corporeal bodies, primordial spirits, vital qi, and souls no longer existed!
But they weren't dead.
They were formless and muddle-headed. They had no thoughts, couldn't see, couldn't hear, couldn't feel, and were living a life worse than death.
These gods stood in the mine, and they would occasionally float and pass through the mountain.
The strangeness here was extremely terrifying!
'Even with the Heavenly Consort's treasure of a Celestial Venerable suppressing this place, it can't completely suppress the strangeness of this mine.'
Xiu Hong Su sighed and said, "The strangeness of this place is extremely powerful. I've been ordered to guard this place, and my heart often palpitates. I feel that there's a risk of being assimilated by the mine, so I have to leave the mine from time to time to consolidate my cultivation outside."
Qin Mu was full of sympathy and said, "If you have time, Xiu Xiu, come over to my place more often. My place isn't as dangerous as this place…"
At this moment, Heavenly Lady Yan's voice rang out, and she said with a smile, "If Hong Su went to your place, she wouldn't even know how she died! Even though this mine is dangerous, it's still a gentle place compared to yours, a safe haven."
Xiu Hong Su immediately greeted her, and Heavenly Lady Yan waved her hand to dismiss her.
Qin Mu walked forward and bowed. "Heavenly Consort, why aren't you carrying the white cat this time?"
Heavenly Lady Yan returned the greeting and said, "I told him to find out who was the one behind this and who released the giant beast. Little Seven is the most alert. He can find what I can't find."
Qin Mu's heart stirred slightly, and he asked, "These huge beasts were released?"
Heavenly Lady Yan nodded and invited him into her side palace hall. She chatted with him as they walked. "That's right."
"In that case, where did these huge beasts live in the past?" Qin Mu asked.
"Some live on the back of the Primordial Realm, some live on the back of the four poles. There are some worlds like the celestial heavens, Xuandu, and Youdu. Even the back of my Ruins of End has some powerful behemoths living there."
Heavenly Lady Yan smiled ambiguously. "Celestial Venerable Mu, you Postcelestial lifeforms and half-gods often say that we ancient gods are savage, but you don't know that we are the ones maintaining the order of the world. Before we seal the ancestral court, we moved these huge beasts to the back of these worlds, allowing them to reproduce. What about you Postcelestial lifeforms and half-gods?"
She revealed a look of ridicule. "We were overthrown by you in the name of brutality, but how many races have been wiped out by you? In terms of brutality, you are even more brutal than us ancient gods!"
Qin Mu smiled. "Goddess, there's no need to say more. I've seen the brutality of the ancient gods during the Dragon Han Era, and I have my own judgment as to whether they are more brutal than the half-gods and the lifeforms after the beginning. To you, the ancient gods aren't cruel, but to us, if the ancient gods don't die, we won't have a way out."
Heavenly Lady Yan remembered that he had been to the Dragon Han Era more than once, so she didn't say anything more. She invited him to take a seat and asked, "How much of Hao'er's blood essence did you get?"
"Celestial Venerable Hao has thirty-five celestial palaces, and he claims that he has twenty-eight."
Qin Mu sat down and gently waved his hand in front of him. Drops of blood floated in front of them. The drops of Celestial Venerable's blood were sparkling and translucent, giving off a gorgeous luster. They were like the purest rubies.
Heavenly Lady Yan's heart pounded violently. There were a total of thirty-five drops of Celestial Venerable's blood that Qin Mu had displayed!
Thirty-five drops of Celestial Venerable's blood represented Celestial Venerable Hao's thirty-five celestial palaces!
"I have a huge business to discuss with Empress."
Qin Mu waved his sleeves, and the thirty-five drops of Celestial Venerable's blood vanished. He smiled and said, "Give me fifty percent of the output of your mine. I'll give Celestial Venerable Hao's thirty-five drops of Celestial Venerable's blood to you so you can understand Celestial Venerable Hao's techniques and divine arts! How about this deal?"
Heavenly Lady Yan's gaze flickered, and she smiled. "Celestial Venerable Mu, you are right in front of me. If I want to take you by force, can you resist me?"
She slowly stood up and no longer had the coquettish manner of a Heavenly Consort. Instead, she had the bearing of a ruler descending upon the world, and a confident smile appeared on her face. "I can kill you thousands of times with a flick of my finger! I can even completely obliterate your soul and erase all traces of your existence in this world!"
She said with a smile, "Your so-called Ten Thousand Calamity Indestructible Great Wizard title is nothing in my eyes. In this world, only I can break your divine art, not even the Grand Emperor! In this world, the only one who can eat you steadily is me! Hand over Hao'er's divine blood and I'll spare your life!"
Qin Mu laughed loudly, and his laughter reverberated around the palace hall.
