Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1299 - Causing Trouble, Settling It
In the center of Tai Shi Mine, Qin Mu stood on the sacrificial altar and was about to activate the fourth rebellion when he suddenly saw the treasure of the Celestial Venerable that was suspended high above the mine burst forth with abnormal activity.
Heavenly Lady Yan's unique treasure was a cauldron with a simple and unadorned atmosphere. It was square and had its mouth facing down. The cauldron spewed out rays of light that severed the void and earth, forming an independent space and time around the mine, preventing people from entering or leaving.
"Heavenly Lady Yan is here!"
Qin Mu's heart stirred slightly, and he immediately gave up on the idea of stirring up the mine. He put away the Tai Shi egg and the Tai Shi Origin Stone and walked out honestly.
Heavenly Lady Yan arrived outside the mine. Her expression was calm, but her eyes couldn't hide her anger.
Hong Su and the white cat hurriedly went forward, and the white cat, Xiao Qi, leaped into her arms. Hong Su whispered, "Goddess, Celestial Venerable Mu, he…"
Heavenly Lady Yan raised her delicate eyebrows, and Hong Su immediately shut up, not daring to say another word.
Heavenly Lady Yan looked around and saw numerous gods lying in ambush. They were clearly waiting for Qin Mu to come out to kill. She couldn't help shaking her head. "With me around, there's no need for this."
Hong Su waved his hand and dismissed the executioners.
Heavenly Lady Yan examined them, and her expression sank. She saw that not many people had escaped from the mine, and about half of them had died there.
"Celestial Venerable Mu, I asked you to retrieve the Origin Stone, yet you actually caused such a huge trouble. Do you really think I'm made of paper?"
She sneered and walked into the mine.
The white cat couldn't help becoming excited. It raised its head in her arms and licked its paws, thinking to itself, 'Goddess is angry. Even I can't coax her! Celestial Venerable Mu, you won't be able to escape this time!'
Hong Su caught up with Heavenly Lady Yan and said carefully, "Empress, Celestial Venerable Mu is the highest senior elder of the Heaven Alliance after all. If he dies at your hands, I'm afraid it won't be appropriate, and he will be attacked by other Celestial Venerables. If you really want him to die, let me do it."
Heavenly Lady Yan didn't express any opinion and continued to walk forward. However, she saw that the people who didn't escape from the mine had already turned into void bodies. They had no corporeal bodies and consciousness. They were all muddle-headed.
Among them, there were even quite a number of female disciples whom she had painstakingly taught!
Heavenly Lady Yan's expression became even darker, and she continued to walk forward. After all, her cultivation was incomparably astonishing, and even the strangeness of the mine couldn't do anything to her.
The two humans and cat went deep into the mine and came to the depths of the mine. Suddenly, light burst forth in front of them, and they saw someone executing a divine art.
They rushed forward and saw Qin Mu in front of a human figure that had already transformed into a body of energy. He was executing a divine art on that apparition, and the god that had already turned into a phantom was actually slowly recovering his corporeal body!
Heavenly Lady Yan revealed a look of astonishment and raised her hand to stop Hong Su who was about to kill Qin Mu. She said in a low voice, "Don't disturb him, let's see how he does it."
Qin Mu's hands moved up and down, and the Dao voice in his body rang out. His hands pulled out the yin and yang qi, and he executed the path of yin and yang to transform into a taiji diagram that incorporated the apparition of the god into the diagram.
After a moment, the god materialized from the void and looked around in a daze. He then looked at his hands and touched his body, feeling slightly lost.
Qin Mu wiped away the sweat on his forehead and said with a smile, "Brother, you have already come back to life!"
The god was puzzled. "When did I die? I was originally alive and well, so why did you bring me here? I still need to mine…"
Pa, pa, pa!
Applause rang out, and a voice said with a smile, "Great Wizard, your skills are marvelous, as expected of being indestructible. This divine art has broken the boundary between life and death. I now understand why Heaven Duke and Earth Count must protect you."
That god hurriedly looked towards the source of the voice, and his expression changed drastically. He hurriedly bowed and said, "This criminal pays his respects to Heavenly Consort!"
Qin Mu looked over and said with a smile, "So it's Goddess, you gave me a scare. Goddess, I have a lot of things to do here, and I still have to help these gods recover their corporeal bodies and primordial spirits. I can't talk much."
Heavenly Lady Yan gently said, "Celestial Venerable Mu is extremely righteous. I'll thank you on behalf of these people and won't disturb you any further." After she said that, she carried her cat and left with Hong Su.
Hong Su and Xiao Qi wanted to say something but held themselves back.
When they reached the main hall of the side palace, Hong Su finally couldn't hold it in any longer and said, "Goddess, the trouble was caused by Celestial Venerable Mu. Why must you be polite to him?"
"Because he is the Invincible Great Wizard."
Heavenly Lady Yan said, "He experienced three explosions in the mine and didn't die. He could also revive those people that had already turned into void bodies. Even Heaven Duke and Earth Count couldn't do this kind of ability, and neither could I. When he displayed his abilities, he was telling me that he could create trouble and settle it. He had the ability to tear down and rebuild, so it's more useful to keep him alive."
Hong Su and the white cat, Xiao Qi, were still puzzled. Heavenly Lady Yan was so furious just now, so how could she let Qin Mu off just because he showed his divine art?
'Celestial Venerable Mu's reputation of being indestructible is well deserved. He's right, in the future, the ten Celestial Venerables might not win. I should place my bets on both sides.'
Heavenly Lady Yan said softly, "In that case, there's no harm in letting him get the Origin Stone. Don't think too much, you don't understand the magnanimity of a Celestial Venerable's."
The two of them fell silent.
Qin Mu was very attentive as he healed all the gods that had turned into void bodies in the mine. He was so tired that he was gasping for breath.
Heavenly Lady Yan attended to him attentively and gathered everyone to kowtow and thank Qin Mu. It was very lively.
Little Seven, the white cat, was jealous, but he also knew that no matter if it was his status or cultivation, he couldn't be compared to Qin Mu. His place in Heavenly Lady Yan's heart was also surpassed by Qin Mu.
He was very smart, so he accepted this fact.
"Did Celestial Venerable Mu get the raw stones in the mine?" Heavenly Lady Yan personally sent Qin Mu out of the mine and asked.
Qin Mu hesitated for a moment and nodded his head. "I have indeed obtained that Origin Stone."
Heavenly Lady Yan's gaze flickered. "You were able to revive those illusory bodies because of the Origin Stone, right?"
Qin Mu laughed loudly and shook his head. "Goddess, the system of divine treasures and celestial palaces is good in everything, but your comprehension of the Dao is far inferior to the system of Dao Realm that Founding Emperor Qin Ye created. Goddess has cultivated the system of divine treasures and celestial palaces for too long, so your comprehension of the Dao isn't deep. The method I used wasn't the Tai Shi Origin Stone, but the Dao of Taiji and the unchanging substance. If Goddess cultivated the Dao Realm, you wouldn't have seen wrongly."
Heavenly Lady Yan's heart trembled slightly. "Tai Shi Origin Stone? Celestial Venerable Mu knows the name of this stone?"
Qin Mu was astonished, and he knew he had said something wrong. He gave a laugh and said, "I was just randomly named, Goddess, there's no need to take it to heart."
Heavenly Lady Yan smiled. "Celestial Venerable Mu is too kind. Please send my regards to that Dao brother in Clear Sun Hall. I won't send you off."
Qin Mu looked at her deeply, and Heavenly Lady Yan smiled.
"Celestial Empress is truly a clever woman."
Qin Mu turned around and left with large strides. He waved his hand from afar and said, "Goddess, don't forget our deal!"
Heavenly Lady Yan bowed slightly in return and said, "Tell that Dao brother not to worry, I have fifty percent of the divine stone here. We can still trade with him in the future!"
"What an intelligent woman."
Tai Shi sighed ruefully. "She deduced many things from a sentence of yours, and she's definitely going to eat me!"
Qin Mu smiled. "If I offend you and make a deal with you, who benefits more? Celestial Empress will make the best choice."
Heavenly Lady Yan saw them off and thought to herself, 'Dao Realm? It's not that I don't want to, but Dao Realm is even harder than divine treasures and celestial palaces…'
