"Rumors are daunting. Rumors are like arrows that can shoot people."
Wei Suifeng was, after all, more mature. He said to Prince You Ming in a low voice, "Crown Prince, it's best not to tell anyone about this. I know you miss Mother Earth's death, and I know you understand Celestial Venerable Mu's feelings and his actions. However, in the future, when the world is at peace, there will be more people criticizing Celestial Venerable Mu. In the end, his reputation will be ruined. It's best to hide this matter from everyone."
Prince You Ming hesitated and nodded.
Qin Mu shook his head. "Big Senior Brother, we can't hide it. There are traces of our battle here. There are also dragons, Heavenly Lady Qiang, Celestial Venerable Gong, and God Emperor Lang Xuan. How can they not tell us? There's no need to be so nervous. If I do it, why should I be afraid of people saying it?"
Wei Suifeng frowned. That might be the case, but when the actions of a hero weren't understood by others, when the thoughts of the future generations didn't match the way they thought during war, they would still comment on the predecessors and criticize the actions of the predecessors.
The radiance of the seniors was too dazzling, but the more dazzling a person was, the clearer the stain on their body would be. Even if it was an insignificant stain, it would be magnified by others. It was like a fly that had discovered the wound on a brave warrior and wanted to lick it.
Wei Suifeng had seen too many of such situations.
Prince You Ming had too little experience and didn't understand why such a situation would happen. Qin Mu didn't care about it, but Wei Suifeng felt wronged for Qin Mu.
"The battle of the Celestial Venerables is coming to an end, right?"
Qin Mu came to the highest divine mountain nearby and climbed up to look into the distance. Prince You Ming and Wei Suifeng came to his side, and the three of them looked into the distance.
Over there, Celestial Venerable Gong, God Emperor Lang Xuan, Heavenly Lady Qiang, and the dragon were still fighting fiercely. Heavenly Lady Qiang was originally at a disadvantage, but with the help of the Grand Emperor's head and fists, she instantly gained the upper hand. The sudden attack caused Celestial Venerable Gong, the dragon, and God Emperor Lang Xuan to vomit blood.
Even though the head of the Grand Emperor didn't have much power and his cultivation was depleted by Qin Mu, only equivalent to an Emperor's Throne Realm existence, his consciousness was still strong.
His fist was also the only limb left of the Grand Emperor's corporeal body. It wasn't visualized, so it was extremely powerful.
However, Heavenly Lady Qiang quickly suffered. She was targeted by Celestial Venerable Gong and God Emperor Lang Xuan. The three Celestial Venerables attacked her together, causing her to be severely injured again.
Thus, a strange situation had formed. Whoever was stronger or had lighter injuries would be attacked by the others.
However, the result was that all four were injured, and no one could obtain the final victory!
"Is it possible for us to take advantage?"
Wei Suifeng's heart pounded, and he muttered, "If all four of them are injured and have little strength left, can the three of us work together to get rid of them?"
The moment he said that, Prince You Ming's heart couldn't help pounding, and his Dao heart became unstable.
Qin Mu shook his head. "If all four of them are injured, the final winner will be the dragon. Celestial Venerable Gong, God Emperor Lang Xuan, and Heavenly Lady Qiang are people who have lived since the primordial era. They won't give the dragon this chance."
Wei Suifeng was slightly stunned, but he immediately understood what he meant.
Prince You Ming still didn't understand. Wei Suifeng explained, "This is the back of the ancestral court. Even if the dragon is injured, there are still countless huge beasts at his command. If Celestial Venerable Gong and the rest are too heavily injured, the dragon can control those huge ancient beasts to attack them. Even if they are tortured, they can be tortured to death."
Prince You Ming was enlightened. "The ten Celestial Venerables are extremely shrewd. They won't let themselves fall into such a situation."
"However, I still fell into it."
Wei Suifeng took a glance at Qin Mu and said, "The Grand Emperor and Celestial Venerable Hao were both injured, so someone took advantage of them. I heard that Junior Brother once chased Celestial Venerable Hao for 600,000 miles, killing him until he couldn't even scream."
Qin Mu felt very comfortable in his heart. He smiled and said, "Actually, Celestial Venerable Hao can't be blamed. Back then, he fought with the newly revived Grand Emperor with his life, and he had no choice but to unleash all of his power. If he won, with the power to kill the Grand Emperor, who would dare to go against him? The ten Celestial Venerables would all submit to him, not daring to be disloyal. His position would then be stable."
Wei Suifeng asked, "What about the ancestral court refining the head of the Grand Emperor?"
"That's because the Grand Emperor was crushed by the four Celestial Venerables. Not to mention that the Grand Emperor wasn't in his peak state, even if he was, he would have been crushed by the four Celestial Venerables. If he hadn't escaped quickly, his head wouldn't have even been left."
Qin Mu said with a smile, "It's not that easy to pick up the scraps."
Just as he was saying that, a series of violent fluctuations came from the dragon. The dragon was heavily injured and soared into the sky, escaping far away.
His injuries were very severe, and seven of his nine heads and necks were broken. They drooped down powerlessly, and the dragon scales on his body were almost completely shattered. He had no choice but to escape.
If he continued fighting, his source would be injured.
Just as he escaped, Heavenly Lady Qiang suddenly chuckled and left Celestial Venerable Gong and God Emperor Lang Xuan. She flew higher, forming a reverse summoning altar in the air.
Qin Mu's expression sank slightly.
The reason Heavenly Lady Qiang could learn the reverse summoning divine art was definitely because of Shu Jun and the dragon qilin. Shu Jun carried the seal that Qin Mu had used to suppress the Grand Emperor's head and was affected by the Grand Emperor's consciousness.
When the dragon qilin imparted Shu Jun's reverse summoning divine art, he was learned by the Grand Emperor.
"Please don't expose my identity!"
Heavenly Lady Qiang rose higher, activating the summoning altar in the opposite direction. She pulled her body towards the front of the ancestral court, and a sweet laughter came from the sky. "Because if you expose my identity, I will reveal it too! Celestial Venerable Hao will definitely be willing to kill his half-brother, and the ancient gods will also be willing to get rid of the fish that escaped the net of the masters of creation! You and your son can slowly chat!"
Celestial Venerable Gong and God Emperor Lang Xuan's expressions changed slightly. However, what Heavenly Lady Qiang said was normal to them. Which of the ten Celestial Venerables didn't have some unspeakable secrets?
None of the ten Celestial Venerables were innocent, including Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Hao. Everyone had secrets, and even if they knew each other's secrets, they could use them as a threat. They didn't have to reveal them.
Celestial Venerable Gong and God Emperor Lang Xuan stopped and looked at each other with complicated gazes.
"Mother, I always hate you for being a master of creation."
God Emperor Lang Xuan moved back, and runes flew around his body. He also used the reverse summoning divine art.
He didn't learn the reverse summoning divine art from Qin Mu. Instead, he got it from Mother Earth and deduced it himself.
"If you weren't the master of creation, Celestial Emperor wouldn't have killed you. I wouldn't be an illegitimate child."
His reverse summoning divine art was slightly different from Qin Mu's divine art, but it was also extremely marvelous. His runes formed a Dao chain, and the Dao chain was like countless goose feathers that drowned him.
"Even though I know that I have an incomparably noble identity, I have no choice but to hide it because of your identity. Because if I expose it, I can only die!"
God Emperor Lang Xuan's figure vanished, but his voice remained. "I was supposed to be the crown prince, and this world was supposed to be mine! What Celestial Venerable Hao and Xie Wuqi, they are all younger brothers. Only I'm the legitimate crown prince! Because of you, I could only hide my identity and be an illegitimate child…"
Celestial Venerable Gong was silent as he watched him leave. He didn't stop him.
"I really shouldn't have given birth to you." She flicked her sleeves and similarly used a reverse summoning divine art to leave the back of the ancestral court.
When she returned to the hundred thousand black mountains, she saw that the sand in the hourglass hadn't finished falling. Celestial Venerable Gong put away the hourglass and floated away under the gaze of Lan Yutian, Xu Shenghua, and the rest.
"Rumors are daunting. Rumors are like arrows that can shoot people."
