Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1289 - Celestial Empress And Celestial Venerable Yu's Past
Heavenly Lady Yan frowned slightly but looked at him silently.
Qin Mu laughed for a long time, but Heavenly Lady Yan didn't say anything. He couldn't laugh anymore and could only stop. "Heavenly Lady, why don't you ask me why I'm laughing?"
"In order to save your life, you said it yourself. Why do you need me to ask?" Heavenly Lady Yan said indifferently.
Qin Mu praised, "Goddess is truly marvelous. If I were Celestial Emperor Tai Chu, I would also marry you and make you Celestial Empress."
Heavenly Lady Yan frowned slightly.
Qin Mu said, "Goddess, as a god born in the Ruins of End, you naturally have the ability to destroy everything. You can even easily destroy your soul and the black soul sand no longer exist. However, wouldn't I be more useful to you if I'm alive?"
Heavenly Lady Yan raised her eyebrows.
Qin Mu said, "Even though Goddess has already gotten rid of your identity as an ancient god, you are still an ancient god. At the very least, in the eyes of Celestial Venerable Hao, God Emperor Lang Xuan, and the rest, you are still an ancient god. They will never be loyal to you. If you kill me, you will be one of their opponents. Goddess can actually bet on both sides."
Heavenly Lady Yan's gaze flickered. "Bet on both sides?"
Qin Mu nodded. "Among the ten Celestial Venerables, only seven of them who wanted to killed me, but there were three Celestial Venerables who protected me. In other words, the seven Celestial Venerables were one side, while the remaining three Celestial Venerables and the ancient gods were one side. Goddess only placed her bet among the seven Celestial Venerables. What if the one who won in the end wasn't the seven Celestial Venerables but the ancient gods? What would you do then?"
Heavenly Lady Yan shook her head. "You're wrong. The ancient gods can't win. The era that belonged to the ancient gods is already over. There's only one possibility for the winner, and that is the ten Celestial Venerables."
"Can Empress really confirm that the winner is definitely the seven Celestial Venerables?"
Qin Mu said, "Heaven Duke, Earth Count, how powerful are they? Including the three Celestial Venerables of the ten Celestial Venerables, there are five Celestial Venerables! Other than these five Celestial Venerables, there are also Founding Emperor and Lang Wo, who are also at the Celestial Venerable level. These are the seven Celestial Venerables! However, they aren't the only ones. Celestial Venerable Yue, Celestial Venerable Ling, and these are the nine Celestial Venerables! Besides the nine Celestial Venerables, there are also the four deities of the ancient gods! On the other side, there are only seven Celestial Venerables. It will be difficult to win, right?"
Heavenly Lady Yan frowned slightly.
Qin Mu continued, "If Heavenly Consort only placed one bet, what if she really loses in the future? How can the ancient gods tolerate you? If you kill me, how can these nine Celestial Venerable existences tolerate you?"
Heavenly Lady Yan smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable Yue is already crippled, Celestial Venerable Ling is dead, and Heaven Duke and Earth Count are trapped in their own Great Dao. Founding Emperor and Lang Wo are no match for the ten Celestial Venerables. Celestial Venerable Mu, you don't know how powerful the ten Celestial Venerables are. You have no chance of winning."
Qin Mu nodded and said, "What if Celestial Venerable Yu is included?"
Heavenly Lady Yan's heart trembled violently. Her beautiful eyes blinked, and her gaze landed on his face as if she wanted to see through all of his thoughts.
After a moment, Heavenly Lady Yan said indifferently, "Celestial Venerable Yu is already dead. He died a million years ago and was buried by the Celestial River."
"But his coffin is empty, isn't it?"
Qin Mu smiled and said, "I was the one who took his corpse away and hid it in Youdu for a million years. Goddess, don't forget that my title among the ancient gods is the Ten Thousand Calamity Great Wizard ."
Heavenly Lady Yan's body trembled, and she fell silent.
Qin Mu stopped talking.
After a long time, Heavenly Lady Yan raised her eyebrows slightly and said softly, "In my heart, Tai Chu is not suitable to be Celestial Emperor. He is obstinate and self-opinionated, and his power is overwhelming. He needs to have all the power in his hands before he can be at ease. At that time, it was about a thousand years before the Dragon Han Era. When I returned to my hometown to visit my family, I met a youth on the way, a charming human youth. He sat under a tree and comprehended the Dao."
Qin Mu listened quietly.
"How noble is my identity? How gorgeous is my Feng Luan? How grand is my carriage? Wherever I pass, heavenly flowers will rain down, gods will surround me, and all kinds of gods and small gods will kneel down to pay their respects. However, when I saw him, I couldn't help but make the carriage stop."
Heavenly Lady Yan recalled the past and said with a calm expression, "He was entering the path and didn't notice my arrival at all. He just sat quietly under the tree. From his body, I felt a peaceful Dao rune that made me stand beside him and listen to him for a long time. I know how lowly humans are, but humans are about to rise."
She revealed a disappointed and frustrated expression and said, "I seemed to see the future, the decline of the ancient gods in the future, the prosperity of the human race, half-gods, and other races. At that moment, I had the intention to kill him."
Heavenly Lady Yan was silent for a moment before saying, "At that time, he woke up from entering the path and stared at me with his clear eyes. My killing intent vanished. I invited him onto the carriage and treated him as an honored guest. We toured the four seas and headed to the Ruins of End together. Later on, he comprehended the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure and opened up an era. I saw his breadth of mind and spirit and felt that he was more suitable to be Celestial Emperor."
Qin Mu could hear admiration from her tone, admiration, and adoration. He couldn't help feeling weird.
He didn't expect Celestial Venerable Yu to have such a past.
Heavenly Lady Yan said, "After he died, I wanted to take out his corpse and bury him forever in the lotus of the Ruins of End so that he would never decay. However, his coffin was empty."
"I took it," Qin Mu said with a smile.
Heavenly Lady Yan was silent for a moment. She quickly regained the state of mind that a Celestial Venerable should have, and she no longer felt emotional. "Using Hao'er's blood in exchange for fifty percent of the mine's output?"
Qin Mu nodded.
Heavenly Lady Yan said indifferently, "I still want my corporeal body and the little slut's corporeal body back."
Qin Mu rejected her flatly and shook his head. "Goddess, you are too greedy. Celestial Empress' corporeal body and Mistress Yuanmu's corporeal body are so precious to me. You want to exchange a mere fifty percent for their corporeal bodies? Dream on! I can give you a Jue Wuchen corporeal body!"
Heavenly Lady Yan shook her head. "What's the point of keeping my and the little slut's corporeal bodies? Return them to me, and I'll give you fifty percent of this mine. It's already a heavenly blessing. The masters of creation have dominated the universe for billions of years just by obtaining the Grand Primordium Mine. If you obtain half a mine, it'll be enough for you humans to dominate the world and become the leader of all races!"
Qin Mu laughed loudly, but Heavenly Lady Yan didn't reply.
Qin Mu could only stop laughing and said seriously, "Goddess, if Celestial Empress' corporeal body and Mistress Yuanmu's corporeal body merge together, you should know how powerful they are. These two ancient gods' corporeal bodies are the key to obtaining the twin lotuses in the abyss of the Ruins of End!"
Heavenly Lady Yan's gaze was murderous.
The corners of Qin Mu's eyes twitched violently, and he regretted saying too much.
Heavenly Lady Yan retracted her killing intent and said with a calm expression, "I can abandon the little slut's corporeal body, but my corporeal body must be returned. When I think of my body landing in the hands of an abomination like you, I have goosebumps."
Qin Mu muttered to himself for a moment before gritting his teeth. "In that case, other than fifty percent output, I still want the raw stones in this mine! If Goddess agrees, I will return your corporeal body and even give you Jue Wuchen's corporeal body!"
Heavenly Lady Yan paced back and forth and suddenly stopped. With a smile that wasn't a smile, she said, "I promise you. However, the raw stone is in the mine, so you have to dig it out yourself. If you have the ability, go and retrieve it yourself. If you don't, you will die in the mine. Celestial Venerable Mu, do you dare?"
Qin Mu clenched his fists and paced back and forth before stomping his feet. "Deal!"
