Qin Mu took in a long breath and suppressed the palpitation in his heart.
To gather Goddess of Heavenly Yin's soul, it was impossible with just Soul Guide.
Soul Guide was a divine art that could guide one's soul back from Youdu, allowing the soul to return back into his corporeal body.
Meanwhile, Goddess of Heavenly Yin was eaten until only her skin was left. Her soul might also have been eaten and turned into part of the black sand in Heavenly Yin World.
If he wanted to gather her soul, he would have to make some changes to Soul Guide!
Qin Mu was also 'enlightened' by the god of Founding Emperor, and he thought of changing Soul Guide to gather Goddess of Heavenly Yin's soul.
As long as Goddess of Heavenly Yin's soul returned, she could block the control Mingdu had on the darkness of the Great Ruins.
Furthermore, Goddess of Heavenly Yin also knew secrets that many people didn't, and it might help Qin Mu unravel even more secrets of the Great Ruins. In addition to that, the Goddess of Heavenly Yin was a natural born goddess, and with such huge assistance, the pressure on Eternal Peace would be smaller.
Of course, all of that was based on whether he would succeed in changing Soul Guide and managing to gather her soul. If it didn't work, he definitely couldn't escape from the pursuit of Goddess of Heavenly Yin, and he would only die.
The sound of footsteps got closer and closer. He could see the majestic body of Goddess of Heavenly Yin appearing faintly in the fog.
She hurried over according to Qin Mu's voice and because the starved ghosts controlled her body. After all, she wasn't the true Goddess of Heavenly Yin and didn't have remarkable powers. She couldn't see what was in the darkness and could only determine his location by sound.
Qin Mu focused, and the Gate of Heaven Influence suddenly appeared behind him. A book gradually became clearer and clearer in his hands.
Standing on the top of the tower, he flipped open this ancient book and recited out the Youdu writings inside. Cryptic Youdu language came from his mouth, and it was calm and steady.
Behind him, the Gate of Heaven Influence suddenly turned around. The gate, originally opened outwards, was opened inwards. The lintel of the door was where the sill had been and vice versa.
The Gate of Heaven Influence was as it was named, a gate that received the influence of heaven and earth—heaven being Xuandu and earth being Youdu. Above the lintel of the door was the territory of Xuandu, and under the sill of the door was the territory of Youdu.
In that past, Qin Mu never thought which place represented the middle of heaven and earth. It was clear at that point that between heaven and earth was the mortal world, but that there was also a place that was the shade of heaven.
Having flipped the Gate of Heaven Influence, heaven and earth flipped. In that case, the shade of heaven would go from below heaven to above heaven.
Of course, the change wasn't truly him flipping Heavenly Yin World around and placing it above Xuandu. Instead, he changed the structure of the Gate of Heaven Influence.
By changing the structure of the divine art, the effect of the divine art would be different from the previous time, and that time, he had completely flipped things around.
The book in his hands wasn't a tool for him to execute divine art, but instead, it was a tool for him to ensure every word he read was correct. It was equivalent to a dictionary of Youdu words.
The undulation and cadence of his voice became greater and greater as the resounding parts became more and more impassioned, while the lower parts droned and vibrated more and more. The Gate of Heaven Influence no longer had sinister wind sweeping in, and instead, there was light gradually appearing.
At the same time, Goddess of Heavenly Yin finally determined his position and walked over. Her body became clearer.
When the black fog in front of her dispersed, she appeared in front of the tall tower.
The god of Founding Emperor didn't think and immediately opened up the Life and Death Book. The light from the Life and Death Book instantly shone on Goddess of Heavenly Yin's face!
Goddess of Heavenly Yin's facial features distorted and she gave off a miserable shriek. Black smoke rolled out from her eyes, nose, ears, and mouth.
She lifted her palm and blocked in front of her face, and her fingers twisted rapidly. Her fingers shriveled up at a rapid speed.
Her other hand raised up, and she clawed towards the god on top of the tower. However, the palm deflated from the shine of the Life and Death Book. When it landed on the tower, it had already become a floating skin that fluttered down. It didn't hurt Qin Mu and the rest.
Qin Mu had no other thoughts and continued to chant his Youdu language. The light shining out from the door became stronger and stronger. An incomparably bright light shone out and accompanying it was an incomparably loud voice that shook the world.
The voice actually overlapped with Qin Mu's voice and it was like a voice, but once it passed through the Gate of Heaven Influence, it was amplified several times and reverberated throughout heaven and earth!
Light from the Gate of Heaven Influence shone on Goddess of Heavenly Yin's body, and her shrieks became even more miserable and deafening to the ears. It almost suppressed the Youdu language that was coming from Qin Mu and the Gate of Heaven Influence.
Suddenly, her body moved to avoid the light from the Life and Death Book, and her hand rapidly recovered.
The sacred god that was born from heaven and earth grabbed the foundation to raise up the immeasurably tall pagoda with brute force!
The god hurriedly shifted the Life and Death Book, and the light from the book shone on her face again. Black smoke rolled out from her face, and her face quickly shriveled up, turning her into a faceless woman.
Qin Mu's Gate of Heaven Influence also moved as she did, so the light from the Gate of Heaven Influence never left her face.
The light from that gate became brighter and brighter, and the high pitch from the gate became higher while the low pitch became lower. It deafened everyone's ears and made their chests resonate in unison.
Her body was lit up, and more darkness was pouring over, flowing into her body. At the same time, the darkness in her body was pouring out from her face at a furious speed.
Goddess of Heavenly Yin struggled and shrieked as she swung the tower around. Such terrifying power was astonishing, as expected of a god born from nature!
Qin Mu's feet stuck firmly on the top of the tower, and no matter how she swung the tower, Qin Mu never moved and continued his chant.
The god of Founding Emperor also tried his best to stabilize himself and let Life and Death Book shine on Goddess of Heavenly Yin's face, to discharge even more black sand.
At the same time, the black sand flooding over transformed into a torrent of darkness that was as thick as a dragon and poured into the Goddess of Heavenly Yin's body.
That was summoning the soul!
The improved Soul Guide that Qin Mu had used summoned the soul of Goddess of Heavenly Yin, and among all of the black sand in Heavenly Yin World, any of them that had the shattered soul of Goddess of Heavenly Yin would be guided over by his divine art. Even if they were fine grains, they would still fly towards Goddess of Heavenly Yin's body.
Not only that, his divine art could even travel to the Great Ruins and every world connected to Heavenly Yin World!
Soul Guide was originally a spell from Youdu. It was because the divine arts practitioners of Eternal Peace didn't research into Youdu language that the divine arts practitioners gradually replaced Youdu language with the devil language.
Even so, Soul Guide could allow the power of the divine art to reach Youdu and seized back the soul of people already dead.
That showed how marvelous the divine art was.
Only under Qin Mu, who was proficient in Youdu language, did the divine art finally return to its original state. The first time Qin Mu used the divine art spectacularly was in the ominous land of Supreme Emperor Heaven. With one divine art, he managed to awaken thousands of gods that had died in battle!
That was the time he had seized the souls and primordial spirits of gods from Earth Count, and thus, the messenger of death had come with such a fierce aura.
The improved Soul Guide that Qin Mu was using guided over all of the atoms from Goddess of Heavenly Yin's soul, which were scattered in the Great Ruins and all the worlds connected to Heavenly Yin World. It was no problem for him at all.
However, that wasn't all he was going to do.
Other than summoning all of the atoms of her soul back, he also wanted to reconstruct her soul and revive the sacred goddess that had died for god knows how many thousands of years!
Even in the Qin word land in his third eye, his cryptic voice faintly traveled and entranced the clone of Heaven Duke, the consciousness of Crimson Emperor, and Big Baby Qin Fengqing as they listened carefully.
"Bad brother isn't bad at the pronunciation."
The baby sat on the ground and pulled out his thumb from his mouth while squeaking childishly. "Once I catch him, I'll pluck his head off and eat."
The clone of Heaven Duke had a grim expression and said with a low voice, "He's starting to take advantage of me."
The consciousness of the Crimson Emperor felt Qin Mu's Youdu language was pretty profound and hard to understand. He asked, "How has he taken advantage of you?"
The clone of Heaven Duke said with a sigh, "He flipped the Gate of Heaven Influence around to steal my light and reconstruct the soul of another person."
The consciousness of Crimson Emperor jumped in shock and cried out, "He dares to steal your power? Is this brat trying to go against heaven?"
The clone of Heaven Duke said, "Why wouldn't he dare? He dares to even lock you and I here, so what's stealing my power to him? Luckily, he isn't stealing much of it. The reason he has flipped the Gate of Heaven Influence and borrowed my light to shine on Heavenly Yin World is probably to revive the Goddess of Heavenly Yin."
Crimson Emperor's expression became grim, and he asked solemnly, "Goddess of Heavenly Yin is dead?"
"Before you died, she had already died."
The clone of Heaven Duke said indifferently, "Back then, I could sense her death, but I couldn't see Heavenly Yin World so I could only sigh ruefully. When I move, Heavenly Yin World moves as well, and this world is forever hidden in my shadow; therefore, I couldn't save her."
The gaze of Crimson Emperor flickered. "Goddess of Heavenly Yin died before me? In that case, she must have died during Dragon Han Era. If she had died during the Crimson Light Era, I would have known. Three heavens of Dragon Han, during Dragon Han Era, three celestial heavens were standing against one another. May I ask Heaven Duke, which celestial heavens killed the Goddess of Heavenly Yin?"
The clone of Heaven Duke took a look at him and said calmly, "You have already died, so there's no need to ask so much. On the other hand, Son of Qin piques my curiosity. This kid has founded such a divine art that allows even people who had their soul scattered to have their soul reconstructed. If he really succeeds in doing so, it will be the beginning of a change in the world... How could there be such a shrewd person in the world?"
The consciousness of Crimson Emperor said with a sigh, "He isn't shrewd, it's just that he can think of what others dare not and never thought of. He can think of things that people can never imagine, and he dares to carry it out. Others may feel that whatever they know is the rule and fixed reasoning, but in his heart, there are no rules and fixed reasonings. This is why he is able to create divine arts that even Heaven Duke would find astonishing."
The clone of Heaven Duke said with a smile, "Even though he has many ideas, it's still hard to say if he can succeed."
At that moment, Qin Mu's voice that was traveling into the Qin word land suddenly became short and ragged; it was like a syllable coming out after another syllable.
The expression of Heaven Duke turned grave, and he said with a low voice, "If he succeeds, the rules of the Great Dao of Heaven and Earth will change accordingly. Crimson Emperor, can you feel the slight change in the Great Dao of Heaven and Earth?"
At that moment, the great buddha that had been sleeping above Qin word land suddenly woke up and opened his eyes. He said in astonishment, "A slight change is happening to the Great Dao of Heaven and Earth? Who is... Eh? Dao Brother Heaven Duke and Crimson Emperor, when did both of you come here?"
"Old Buddha, don't come down, don't come down!"
The consciousness of the Crimson Emperor immediately waved his hands and stopped the great buddha that was planning to go down. "If you come down, you will end up in the same plight as us. You will be beaten miserably by the weird baby with the big head!"
Qin Mu took in a long breath and suppressed the palpitation in his heart.
