Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 689 - Heavenly Fire

In the Qin word land, Heaven Duke, Crimson Emperor, and Old Buddha all had grim expression. After a moment, Old Buddha sighed and said, "The Great Dao of Heaven and Earth has changed, from changing skills to changing paths, the Great Dao of Heaven and Earth has evolved another step. Troubled times and huge changes in the world are about to come."

His gaze gradually dimmed as he went back to sleep.

The clone of Heaven Duke said with a sigh, "It has come so soon, looks like I will have to make preparations as well. On the other hand, Crimson Emperor can now relax since you've died."

Crimson Emperor gave a dull grunt.

"We are all in the stomach of the starved corpse?"

Qin Mu's heart trembled violently and his expression flickered. If that was the case, then the darkness that enveloped the Great Ruins was also the inconceivably huge starved ghost.

The body of the starved ghost could fill up the entire Great Ruins and fill up the worlds in the cliff.

The most crucial point was that the starved ghost didn't have its own consciousness.

Starved ghosts could have their own consciousness, and he realized that at Cheerful Village. Starved ghosts could have their own memories and their own thoughts. If Heavenly Yin World was truly transformed into a starved ghost by Son of Heaven Yin, in that case, even with Goddess of Heavenly Yin's resurrection, the situation wasn't that positive!

'Heavenly Yin World has transformed into a huge starved ghost, and to Goddess of Heavenly Yin, that is an incomparably terrifying opponent. If the Goddess of Heavenly Yin can't even take care of herself, how can she take care of the Great Ruins?'

He wasn't too confident about her situation.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin held him in her palms and looked at him curiously. She saw Qin Mu's expression was flickering non-stop.

'This Great Wizard might have superior abilities, but his frame of mind seems to be a little weak. In just a short while, he had more than ten expressions. It's like a rotating lantern that could change its colors affixed under his face.'

Her corporeal body was gradually recovering. The ability to transform earth and water into her flesh, blood, and bones was something that others could only be envious of.

For example, even though Qin Mu had cultivated the Undying God Consciousness of Crimson Emperor and Anasrava Creation Mysterious Scripture of Light Emperor—having astonishing attainments in the arts of creation—if his flesh and blood dissolved and only his skin was left, Qin Mu was bound to die. He wouldn't be able to reconstruct his body.

Other than possessing immense power, the reason why the Goddess of Heavenly Yin could do so was an innate talent that she was born with.

"This tower was created by me to suppress the starved ghosts, but they allied themselves with Son of Heaven Yin and schemed against me."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin's body was incomparably huge, and she waded in the seawater as she walked into the sea, raising huge waves on the surface. "Back then, when the starved ghosts in Heavenly Yin World were creating havoc, I had wanted to create a weapon that could help me solve the problem of the starved ghosts once and for all. However, since I was born from heaven and earth, I wasn't skilled in other divine arts, paths, and skills. I shut myself in seclusion to create a treasure, but I couldn't do it no matter what. That was when Son of Heaven Yin came to Heavenly Yin World and said he would help me. His spells were truly astonishing, and he walked the path of Youdu, which could complement what I lacked. With his help, I completed my tower. However..."

She came to the center of the sea, and her face dimmed.

"It was all a setup. He had ill intentions for helping me to create the treasure, and after my treasure was created, he hid a divine art inside."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin gritted her teeth. "He used this divine art to assassinate me and injured me. The starved ghosts then bore into my body and feasted in my flesh and blood. On the other hand, he brought a lot of strong practitioners and took the chance to attack me. More and more starved ghosts made their way into my body, and the black sand flooded continuously..."

Qin Mu could imagine how terrifying that sight was.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin who was injured had to defend against the attacks from Son of Heaven Yin and numerous strong practitioners on one side and on the other. All the while, there were still countless starved ghosts that were boring into her wounds and feasting on her flesh, blood, and soul!

At that time, the Goddess of Heavenly Yin must have been extremely torn between the internal and external attacks. She must have been in complete despair.

"Why would goddess trust a stranger?" He was puzzled.

If Goddess of Heavenly Yin had put her guard up against Son of Heaven Yin, she wouldn't have lost so miserably. Son of Heaven Yin should have been a stranger to Goddess of Heavenly Yin at that time, so there was no reason for her to trust him without any reservation. She was too hasty.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin blushed slightly and said, "He looked very handsome, so I couldn't put my guard up against him."

Qin Mu looked at her with a weird expression.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin immediately said, "I wasn't judging a book by its cover, but he was just really good-looking, and I couldn't see through his pretense. He helped me create my treasure, and I had indeed needed help then; thus I was tricked. Only when I meet Great Wizard did I learn that good-looking people might not be good and that plain-looking people can be very good people as well."

She looked at Qin Mu who was in her palm and gave him an encouraging smile.

Qin Mu grunted, and he didn't want to mention how she said he was plain-looking. "In that case, why didn't Son of Heaven Yin take away this tower of yours but left it here instead?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin grabbed the huge hourglass and said, "He wanted to, but because my tower is constructed using the metal of Heavenly Yin, it belonged to me after refining. I merged this treasure into one with Heavenly Yin World so he naturally couldn't lift it. Even though I died once, I also received blessings in the disguise of misfortune. In the past, I couldn't comprehend the particle form of the soul, so I was helpless against the black sand, but after I broke apart and turned into soul particles, what I couldn't solve in the past has naturally become clear to me."

She took down the hourglass and said, "This hourglass is a treasure that controls the black sand of Heavenly Yin World, it should be his creation. This is what he used to control the black sand to attack your world."

The hourglass that Son of Heaven Yin had created represented his achievements in the system of the soul. Just with an hourglass, he was able to control the black soul sand of Heavenly Yin World.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin could pluck the hourglass down, which meant that she had truly received a blessing in disguise. Because she had died and revived, she had an extremely deep comprehension of the soul.

Because she had died and revived, she was different from the other sacred beings like Earth Count and Heaven Duke. She had the ability to learn other divine arts and comprehend other paths and skills.

That kind of transformation was very unique, and Qin Mu felt that there could be research done in the field, so he took out his booklet and recorded it down. He thought to himself, 'Research in this field might just be able to help the sacred gods solve the problem of not being able to change with the Dao. I just don't know if Goddess of Heavenly Yin is willing to let thousands of experts that are proficient in algebra climb onto her body to research... I reckon she might not be willing.'

"This hourglass is called Celestial Dipper."

Even though the hourglass was extremely huge, it was like a small toy in Goddess of Heavenly Yin's hands. Goddess of Heavenly Yin played with it and had a smile that was yet not a smile. "His methods of creating treasures are much more profound than mine. This Celestial Dipper is very intricate, but after landing in my hands, he won't be able to take it back. Celestial Dipper will be my strongest method to deal with the starved ghosts in Heavenly Yin World."

Qin Mu could see that Goddess of Heavenly Yin had never dabbled into the affairs of the world before. She had only been in charge of managing Heavenly Yin World, and she wasn't concern about hatching plots and being in contact with the outside world.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin had understood how she could manipulate things, and that put him at ease.

The Goddess of Heavenly Yin that he had revived wouldn't be defeated easily by Mingdu Black Deity anymore.

He jumped down from Goddess of Heavenly Yin's hand and came to the broken palaces. He picked up a few Youdu divine weapons that were still in good shape and also took the Heavenly Funeral Bell.

"Great Wizard, you should go."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin said as she played with the hourglass. "I can sense Son of Heaven Yin coming from the Celestial Dipper. He will be trying to come here soon. When he had schemed against me, his abilities already weren't weak, and they should only be even stronger now. If you stay here, I can't protect you."

Qin Mu was astonished and raised his head to ask, "Does goddess have the abilities to fight against him?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin said, "My corporeal body is still unstable now so I can't defeat him. However, defending against his abilities is not a problem for me. I will block him outside Heavenly Yin World and make him unable to enter. As long as he can't enter, my life will be in no danger. However, he will definitely control the starved ghost of Heavenly Yin World to attack me, and that will be the time when Heavenly Yin World will erupt in chaos. If you stay, you definitely can't protect yourself."

Qin Mu nodded his head and said solemnly, "Goddess, take care!"

He was about to leave with the god of Founding Emperor when he remembered something and stopped in his footsteps. "Goddess, when I was trying to save you just now, I was attacked by the starved ghost that you had transformed into and my sword pellet was destroyed. Now I don't have any weapon I can use. I wonder if goddess still has any leftover Metal of Heavenly Yin from creating the tower? Could you give some to me?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin gently scooped up the seabed, and when the seawater drained from her hand, he saw numerous grains of sand that were glowing with a green sparkle in her palm. "This is the Metal of Heavenly Yin. Do you have anything to store it in?"

Her palm had a radius of hundreds of fields, so the metal in her palm was like a green-colored desert.

Qin Mu's heart beat wildly, and he exclaimed to himself at how generous she was. He took out his taotie sack and said, "My taotie sacks are filled with Buddha Vitality Crimson Chromium and Plume Buddha Mother Tree, but there are still gaps that I can fill with sand."

"Your two sacks are too small, and you probably can't fill much."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin shook her head and let him jump onto her hand to store the Metal of Heavenly Yin. Qin Mu immediately execute his taotie sacks to store the Metal of Heavenly Yin into his taotie sacks. Soon, he filled up both of the sacks.

There was still half of the metal in Goddess of Heavenly Yin's palm that he didn't manage to store.

Qin Mu sighed to himself in pity and tied the two taotie sacks around his waist with great difficulty. However, the sacks almost snapped his belt so he could only carry them with his hands.

"There must be a certain method to smelt this metal. When goddess was creating your treasure, what fire did you use?" Qin Mu asked again.

"I used the heavenly fire I had stolen from Heaven Duke of Xuandu."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin flipped another hand, and a lump of fire appeared in her palm. She said, "This is what I stole from Heaven Duke when he wasn't paying attention. It has no use to me now, so I'll just give it to you."

Qin Mu looked at the flames in her palm. When that flame was burning it was like a crystal that was sharp and clearcut. However, it was simply too huge. It was literally a sea of fire that was formed by crystals!

"Goddess, I don't need so much."

Qin Mu said in embarrassment, "I have no place to store it anymore..."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin used two fingers to break off a small chunk of heavenly fire gently and handed it to him. "Just carry it with you. Even though heavenly fire might sound scary, it isn't hot at all. You will need to activate it in order to have the power to incinerate everything."

Qin Mu hugged this chunk of heavenly fire, and it was like hugging a crystal that had the shape of a prism. The heavenly fire was as thick as his waist and even taller than him. With the two taotie sack, he was struggling to carry them.

"You should go!"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin focused her gaze in the distance, and she said with a grim expression, "Son of Heaven Yin will be here soon!"

Qin Mu immediately took his leave and leaped down from Goddess of Heavenly Yin's hand. The god of Founding Emperor hurriedly followed after him, and he heard a plop. He was stunned and saw Qin Mu sinking into the sea, and he wasn't standing the sea surface or flying up.

Luckily for him, Goddess of Heavenly Yin fished him out of the sea and blew a gentle breath on them. Qin Mu and the god instantly flew back on the path they had come from. They traveled tens of thousands of miles in a split second, and they reached the boundary stone of Heavenly Yin World. Only then did they landed on the ground.

The God of Founding Emperor was about to cross the boundary stone when Qin Mu hurriedly said, "Senior, wait a minute!"

The God of Founding Emperor was puzzled, and he saw Qin Mu placing down his taotie sacks and the prism of heavenly fire. Qin Mu took over ten and more jade bottles and poured the dragon saliva inside away.

The god of Founding Emperor didn't know what he was trying to do. Qin Mu chanted phrases and executed a strange divine art. Black sand came flooding into the small jade bottles.

Qin Mu tightened the cork and designed a series of strange rune markings around the vase. He opened up the god of Founding Emperor's shirt and placed the small jade bottles inside. "You can't see the light after you go out so when the day comes, the black sand will leave your body. I'm afraid you will die, so I collected some black soul sand. Once we are out, I will refine a treasure for you, which can keep your black soul sand in the treasure during the day and allow the black soul sand to enter your body at night."

The god of Founding Emperor revealed a moved expression.

And at that moment, violent tremors suddenly came from Heavenly Yin World.

"Son of Heaven Yin is here!" Qin Mu was astonished and looked back.
