Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1333 - Celestial Venerable Yu Must Die
Celestial Venerable Xiao's expression sank slightly. "How vulgar. Celestial Venerable Mu, you are so angry that you are swearing. I'm a little disappointed. It seems like I'm giving you too much pressure. Today, I'm not dealing with you, but Celestial Venerable Yue. You and I are still allies, and I have my uses for you. However, Celestial Venerable Yue isn't."
His gaze landed on Celestial Venerable Yue, and he stretched out a hand. He said seriously, "As long as Celestial Venerable Yue is willing to submit, I can let bygones be bygones regarding you killing me in the past."
He said indifferently, "Don't say that I have no magnanimity, my magnanimity is very big. Heaven Duke and Earth Count are wild and unruly, I can tolerate them, Yu, Hao, Ling, Yue, Huo, and the other Celestial Venerables creating the path of Postcelestial cultivation, I can tolerate all of you as well. When Postcelestial lifeforms become gods, I can tolerate them as well. I even let you guys establish the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens and the Dragon Heaven Celestial Heavens, giving you authority. Even when Celestial Venerable Mu is reforming Eternal Peace, I will just turn a blind eye to it. As a Celestial Emperor of a generation, my magnanimity isn't bad, right?"
His gaze was sincere as it landed on Celestial Venerable Yue's face. "If it was any other Celestial Venerable, do you think any of the ten Celestial Venerables would have the magnanimity to do so? Celestial Venerable Hao? He can't. If he was in my position, he would have killed all of you immediately and cut off all reforms."
"God Emperor Lang Xuan? He can't do it either. He doesn't have such boldness."
"Celestial Venerable Huo? He's just a nobody, licking whoever's strong."
"Celestial Venerable Hong is too indifferent. Heavenly Lady Yan doesn't dare to stand out and only dares to rely on men. Heavenly Lady Qiang is the Grand Emperor. He even dares to exterminate his own race, let alone you guys."
"Celestial Venerable Gong is too arrogant, Celestial Venerable Xu's heart is too dark, and Ancestral God King is arrogant. None of them are materials for a Celestial Emperor."
He said leisurely, "Besides, your Nine Celestial Venerables of Dragon Han, excluding Celestial Venerable Hao and Celestial Venerable Huo, Celestial Venerable Yun is talented, but he lacks the general trend. Celestial Venerable You is shut-in, and it's hard for him to achieve great things. Celestial Venerable Yue, you are only suitable for logistics. Celestial Venerable Ling has a communication barrier. Although Celestial Venerable Qin is broad-minded, he is cautious by nature. He is only fit to fight with Celestial Venerable Hao for the world. As for Celestial Venerable Mu…"
He cast a glance at Qin Mu and said with a smile, "Too jumpy. Even though he has scheming methods, he will play himself to death because he's too curious."
Qin Mu's face was as black as iron.
Celestial Venerable Xiao said with a smile, "From ancient times until now, there have been people with breadth of mind, bearing, methods, responsibility, and magnanimity who could perfectly match Celestial Emperor. You can look for anyone, but I was the only one. I wasn't the one who dominated the universe and became Celestial Emperor, it was the universe that chose me."
Celestial Venerable Yue's cultivation was rising steadily, and her aura was becoming stronger. She said calmly, "You said the ninth Celestial Venerable back then and the ten Celestial Venerables today. What about Celestial Venerable Yu? Why didn't you mention him?"
"Celestial Venerable Yu?" Celestial Venerable Xiao's expression sank slightly.
"That's right, Celestial Venerable Yu!"
Celestial Venerable Yue stood in the palm of Qin Mu's primordial spirit, her gaze bright as she stared at Celestial Venerable Xiao's face. She enunciated each word clearly. "You said you were magnanimous, so why didn't you mention Celestial Venerable Yu? Is it because he's more suitable to be the Celestial Emperor than you, so you couldn't tolerate him and killed him?"
Celestial Venerable Xiao frowned and chuckled. "Celestial Venerable Yu? I didn't kill him. It was Celestial Venerable Hao and Son of Heaven Yin who did it…"
Celestial Venerable Yue raised her eyebrows and was about to speak when Celestial Venerable Xiao continued to smile. "However, the reason why Hao'er and Yin Chaojin dared to make a move was indeed because of my instructions. I even helped Hao'er seal the Slow Winding Pavilion to ensure that Heaven Duke and Earth Count couldn't detect the cause of Celestial Venerable Yu's death."
He had a smile on his face. "At that time, it was the first Celestial Heavens Meeting. At the Celestial Heavens Meeting, the big shots gathered together to discuss the establishment of the Dragon Han Celestial Heavens. They respected me as the ruler of the world. I was high up in the sky, and my power was unmatched. At that time, the human race was just an insignificant small race. The Jade Pool Meeting was just an unremarkable corner of the celestial heavens, and the seven Celestial Venerables were just insignificant characters in that era. Celestial Venerable Yu was merely one of the stronger ants. Yet, I was terrified."
Celestial Venerable Yue clenched her fists.
Celestial Venerable Xiao said, "I no longer have a worthy opponent. The Grand Emperor was defeated, the Origin Stone shattered, and he became a stray dog. His palace died, and he was buried in the ancestral court by me. Heaven Duke had something on me, and Mother Earth was alone. Earth Count was no match for me. As for the four deities of the ancient gods, they were only fit to be ministers. However, when I saw Celestial Venerable Yu, I was terrified."
He turned back to look at the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu behind him and recalled the past. After a moment, he turned back and continued, "Celestial Venerable Yu is talented. His talent is unrivaled. He opened up the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure, allowing all living beings to cultivate, allowing all races to remember his kindness. He also has ambition. He makes friends widely, and no matter if it's the half-gods or the Postcelestial races, they treat him as an honored guest. He also created the method to become a god, giving the half-gods and Postcelestial races hope to be on par with the ancient gods or even surpass them."
"At first, I only noticed him and was very tolerant of everything he did. He was just a talented child. Later, when Hao'er told me his method to become a god, I felt a deep fear."
Celestial Venerable Xiao sighed and said, "If he is allowed to spread the method of becoming a god, he will accumulate a kind of power, a righteous power. Celestial Venerable Yue, Celestial Venerable Mu, you aren't Celestial Emperor, so it's hard for you to understand this power. You have seen dynasties fighting for hegemony, seen dynasties changing, but have you seen a person's power accumulating to the extreme, when the whole world is united? The path that Celestial Venerable Yu walked is this path!"
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue were slightly stunned. Apothecary, who was treating Celestial Venerable Yue's final injuries, also listened carefully.
Celestial Venerable Xiao said, "During the Jade Pool Meeting, he already had all the conditions for this path. Reputation, merit, supporters, and future, he had all of them. The only thing he lacked was power! Think about it, after a few hundred thousand years, the half-gods and the lifeforms after the beginning will grow stronger. With hundreds of existences on the Emperor's Throne Realm and the existence of the Celestial Heavens Realm, who will they support as their leader? Celestial Venerable Yu, only Celestial Venerable Yu! This is the power that he has accumulated, a righteous power!"
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue thought about it carefully. At that time, if Celestial Venerable Yu didn't die, the half-gods and humans would live in harmony and respect him as their leader. Hundreds of thousands of years later, the scene that Celestial Venerable Xiao had mentioned would indeed appear.
It was an incomparably prosperous era, and all the ancient gods would become supporting characters!
"At that time, Celestial Venerable Yu didn't even need to make a move. He just needed to point at the throne of the celestial heavens and say, 'I want to sit there!'"
Celestial Venerable Xiao was expressionless, and he said indifferently, "I, must stand up and let him sit on me! If I don't stand up and give way to him, there will be countless half-gods and Postcelestial gods rushing to kill me without him doing anything! The future I see is like this! Thus…"
Qin Mu said, "Thus, Celestial Venerable Yu must die."
Celestial Venerable Xiao nodded. "Celestial Venerable Yu must die."
This was a righteous path to seize power. It was the path of the king, the path of the emperor. There was no need for any scheming, no need to fight for power.
As long as Celestial Venerable Yu was given time, he would naturally stand at the peak of power. Anyone who stood in his way would be easily destroyed and buried!
The general trend was unstoppable!
