Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 470 - True Heaven Old Mother

The goddess who escaped was none other than the goddess whose wine had been snatched by Qin Mu and whom he had sent flying with a kick. She ran to the corner of the wall, past a screen, and out walked a woman who looked completely different from before.

She wore a circular silver accessory on her head and a short black gown while black, high-heeled, and pointy shoes adorned her feet. Her dressing was like that of an ordinary woman of West Earth.

'So close. My true form was almost kicked out by that abandoned person! However, I had still given the game away. All the gods and devils could only say simple words like kill or evil creature while I said a complete sentence.'

The woman quickly rushed out of the main hall of True Heaven Palace. Sunlight shone on her pretty face, and she lowered her head while thinking to herself, 'The two of them might not have realized it yet, but if they think back, they will definitely discover it! I need to leave immediately, or should I get the four spirit beads first…'

Her footsteps were light and fast. In front of her was Qin Mu and Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor, so she slowed down. She acted normal and smiled at them as if she was an ordinary female disciple of True Heaven Palace.

"Crap!" Suddenly, Qin Mu's face changed slightly, and his fist smacked onto his palm as he cried out, "I know where True Heaven Old Mother is hiding!"

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor was also extremely clever and immediately thought of the crux of the problem. "Right, in that picture which was missing a corner! That goddess that was carrying the wine!"

He turned around and sprinted back to the main hall. He quickly said, "We killed the celestial emperor in the painting, but even he didn't say a full sentence. Only that goddess alone had done that!" He, however, soon walked out of the hall while shaking his head. "The goddess that carried the wine is no longer in the painting."

Qin Mu copied the tone of the goddess when he said his next words. "Where is this brat from? This is the sacred wine for the high gods, so how can you touch it? This sentence is too complicated for the people in the painting. Its painter hadn't reached such skill yet, so the only goddess who could talk would be True Heaven Old Mother! How sinister of her, to actually hide in the painting. I've underestimated her."

A woman came to the two people's side and greeted Qin Mu, "Cult Master Qin."

Qin Mu's gaze flickered, but he smiled at her. "Why isn't sister greeting Imperial Preceptor?"

"Imperial Preceptor? I've never seen him before. Is he that strong practitioner that killed Ba Gou?"

The girl's expression filled with excitement, and she hurriedly greeted Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor. She looked deeply into his eyes with tender feeling. Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor shook his head. "It's not her. After I came to West Earth, I didn't really show myself so most of the women of West Earth don't recognize me. However, I killed True Heaven Old Mother's fake body, so she would recognize me."

Qin Mu nodded and said to that woman, "Have you seed anyone walking out from that hall?"

The woman shook her head. "I was going with Chief to snatch Vermillion Bird Bead and passed by here, but I didn't see anyone."

Qin Mu mumbled to himself as he waved her off. The woman took a look at Imperial Preceptor, then lowered her head to walk by them. But Qin Mu suddenly pulled on her sleeves, and True Heaven Old Mother's scalp crawled. She almost couldn't stop herself from attacking.

Qin Mu smiled at her. "How do I address this sister? Which family are you from? Who is your chief?"

True Heaven Old Mother's face changed, and she knelt onto the floor while shivering. She kowtowed and said, "I'm a disciple of True Heaven Palace, Cult Master, please don't kill me! If I get recognized, my life will be lost! Cult Master, please pardon me!"

Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief and said to Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor. "I really thought she was True Heaven Old Mother. She's a god after all, so how would she kneel and beg a mortal? She's indeed a disciple of True Heaven Palace trying to escape with her life."

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor waved his hand and said, "You shall deal with her."

Qin Mu helped True Heaven Old Mother up and said with a pleasant expression, "Sister, don't be scared, there's no need to listen to others. They call me Heavenly Devil Cult Master, but that's just words. I'm actually lacking in confidence so I called myself Heavenly Devil Cult Master to scare people since I came here alone, but I'm actually Heavenly Saint Cult Master. Our cult is the most kind and will never hurt people. I'm also a very kind person. Look, Imperial Preceptor is even one of the four great heavenly kings of my Heavenly Saint Cult. That's right, what's your name?"

True Heaven Old Master was somewhat in disbelief. "My name is Tian Siyu. You really won't hand me over?"

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor seemed to have remembered something. "I'm going to announce the decree so I have no time to stay here."

Qin Mu followed Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor while holding True Heaven Old Mother's hand. "I want to find someone, a youth called Pangong Tso and Grandmaster. He is the head of Rolan's Golden Palace and had come to your True Heaven Palace once. Has Sister Siyu seen him before?"

True Heaven Old Mother was pulled along by him because whenever she looked at Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor, she didn't dare to struggle. "I've seen him before. I only know that he's called Grandmaster and is a good friend of Elder Yu Qingchan. However, he's no longer in the palace. When he saw Cult Master Qin attacking True Heaven Palace, he ran."

"As expected of Grandmaster." Qin Mu sighed, then smiled once more. "Sister Siyu, follow beside me so you don't get bullied. That's right, the tracking of your West Earth is unrivaled in the world. Sister Siyu's divine arts should be extraordinary so you must have a method to track Pangong Tso, right? I'll protect you from harm and you will help me track Pangong Tso, how does that sound?"

True Heaven Old Mother was delighted. "Alright! Deal?"

Qin Mu laughed and said, "Why would I lie to you? Deal! Imperial Preceptor, read the imperial decree and come with me to chase after Pangong Tso."

"Alright. I would also like to know who is the god behind Grandmaster and where is he hiding," Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said indifferently.

The expression of True Heaven Old Mother changed slightly. She had thought that Qin Mu would go with just her to pursue Pangong Tso. When the two of them were alone, it would be easy for her to kill this noble among the abandoned people. But the brat had actually invited Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor!

With him around, True Heaven Old Mother was in danger. Just a slight giveaway and she would be killed by the heartless fellow!

With them being next to each other, if Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor attacked, she would definitely be unable to defend herself!

'But Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor following along is good as well, for it gives me more chances to get rid of him. I need the four spirits beads, though. Once I get them, the difficulty to get rid of Imperial Preceptor will greatly decrease…'

The influential families of West Earth finally pacified True Heaven Palace and slaughtered and captured all of Yu Family's experts. The clans elected Xiong Xiyu as the palace master and Nai Kui once again. She held Xiong Qi'er's hand and accepted everyone's worship.

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor read out Emperor Yanfeng's imperial decree, and Xiong Xiyu immediately received it. In the meantime, Qin Mu pulled Xiong Qi'er over and asked for her Green Dragon Bead and Black Tortoise Bead so they could play with them.

True Heaven Old Mother looked at the two spirit treasures in his hands and fought against the urge to snatch them away.

The two kids didn't listen to the decree. Instead, they played with the beads, flicking the two spirit treasures here and there, which made Xiong Qi'er giggle endlessly.

True Heaven Old Mother's anger blazed, but she just turned around and pretended not to see so her irritation wouldn't grow.

Suddenly, Qin Mu stuffed Green Dragon Bead into her hands with a smile. "Sister Siyu, play with Qi'er for a while."

True Heaven Old Mother held the Green Dragon Bead while looking at the smiling Qin Mu in a daze. She had not the slightest idea what that youth was thinking!

'Green Dragon Bead is in my hands now and it can explode with the strongest power. If I act now, everyone in True Heaven Palace will be frozen and lignified!'

Her gaze flashed, but just when she wanted to make a move, she saw Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor's clothes moving without wind, and she couldn't help feeling fear.

'This brat and Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor are both old foxes; they are testing me!'

True Heaven Old Mother felt a chill run down her spine, then sat down to obediently play beads with Xiong Qi'er.

In a bit, Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor finished reading Emperor Yanfeng's imperial decree and Qin Mu asked for Green Dragon Bead back to stuff it into Xiong Qi'er's hands. After leading everyone to receive the decree, Xiong Xiyu called Xiong Qi'er over. She picked the two spirit beads and bowed. "I'm willing to offer these two spirit beads to His Majesty and never betray him."

The expressions of He Yiyi, Mu Yingxue, and the rest changed slightly. Xiong Xiyu knew that it would be hard for her to rule West Earth and even two of the four spirit beads had been snatched away, so she just gave away the rest to Emperor Yanfeng. It was a simple method to hold back the methods of all the big families!

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor only took the Black Tortoise Bead. "Palace Master also needs treasures to guard West Earth, so keep this Green Dragon Bead."

Xiong Xiyu gave her thanks and pulled Xiong Qi'er up.

After the ceremony, Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor hurried Qin Mu. "You have left traces of your romantic endeavors all over the place, but you can't devote yourself to any of them. Be careful of losing your reputation like Jade Face Poison King and have no choice but to slice your face off. Break it to them quickly and let's go find Grandmaster."

"I'm not flirtatious…" Qin Mu said while bracing himself to bid farewell to all the women.

He Yiyi looked at him with a deep gaze. "Cult Master ain't going to stay for a few more days? There's still some stuff that's not done yet."

Mu Yingxue was very straightforward. "Little man, feel free to leave, but wait for me to climb into your window when I go to Middle Earth!"

Xiong Xiyu brought Xiong Qi'er to part reluctantly. "If we didn't meet Cult Master, we would have died long ago and our corpses would be drying out somewhere in the wild. Cult Master is a huge benefactor of my Xiong Family, so if there comes a day when you need something, True Heaven Palace won't disobey."

Qin Mu smiled at her. "There's no need for you to remember it so deeply since I was just acting according to my beliefs, not wanting to go against my nature. Nai Kui, Qi'er, farewell."

All sorts of feelings welled up in Xiong Xiyu's heart as she saw him out of True Heaven Palace. She suddenly shouted loudly. "Righteous man!"

Qin Mu was stunned. He then turned back to smile and wave his hand.

Those words weren't the reason why he had saved the mother and daughter. He just couldn't bear to see Xiong Qi'er die under the hands of True Heaven Palace. However, now he was worthy of that title.

Qin Mu jumped onto the dragon qilin's back and pulled True Heaven Old Mother up. "Imperial Preceptor, West Earth is a charming world. How will the emperor treat it?"

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor slowly strolled through the air while saying calmly, "He will treat them how he has treated you. He has this breadth of mind. I had clarified it with the emperor that I wanted to conquer West Earth, but not through force. The reason why I didn't mobilize the army was because I was afraid that it would destroy the peace here.

"The women here are so beautiful, and I didn't want any incidents like rape or pillage to happen. That's why I said to the emperor that I won't bring an army of a million. I recommended one man who was equivalent to a million masters and this man…" He turned his head back to look at Qin Mu with a smile. "Is you. Under the sun, only Cult Master Qin can sweep West Earth alone."

Qin Mu was slightly stunned, then laughed at him. "Imperial Preceptor is flattering me! Sister Siyu, don't you think so?"

True Heaven Old Mother had a smile on her face, but she didn't say a word.

Qin Mu stuffed Black Tortoise Bead into her hands. "Sister Siyu, execute the spell. Let's quickly find Pangong Tso, that brat."

True Heaven Old Mother gripped the Black Tortoise Bead tightly, then glanced at Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor. The middle-aged man had a hand behind his back clutching sword secrets.
