Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 693 - The Smartest One

Saint Woodcutter examined the skin in detail, and his heart stirred slightly. "I recognize him. His name is Ning Jin. He's one of the gods I've sent out to scout in the darkness. I laid down the Heavenly Devil Creation Technique on his body to ensure the monsters wouldn't eat him in the darkness, is he still alive?"

Qin Mu said, "Not dead and not alive. Teacher, he has already finished his mission."

Saint Woodcutter revealed a moved look in his eyes, but he didn't express it. He nodded his head slowly. "Do you have a way to wake him up?"

Qin Mu shook his head and said, "When night arrives, he will come alive, and at that time, teacher will be able to meet him."

At that moment, a wave of darkness flooded up. When King Yama moved, his body dragged along the darkness to cover them. The human skin instantly floated up like a paper human, and flesh started to grow from under the skin. Soon, the god of Founding Emperor was filled with flesh and blood as he stood in front of them like a living human.

"He can live in Fengdu," King Yama said from under his cape of darkness.

The god of Founding Emperor examined his hands repeatedly and revealed a look of astonishment. He muttered and said, "This is the feeling of being alive; this is the feeling of living... Twenty thousand years, this is the first time I feel that I'm alive..."

Qin Mu couldn't stop himself from saying, "Senior, you're actually dead. King Yama had brought the living realm of the dead to your side to let you feel like you are living."

The god of Founding Emperor was so agitated that he couldn't hold himself back. Suddenly, he saw Saint Woodcutter, and his eyes turned red. He immediately knelt on one knee and cupped his fists high over his head while saying in a strong voice, "I pay my respects to Heavenly Teacher! Heavenly Words Division Ning Jin, time taken twenty thousand and six hundred years, I've come to report on the completion of my mission!"

"Report: Fifty-eight men of Heavenly Words Division sought out the source of the darkness under Heavenly Teacher's orders, fifty-seven men perished, and their souls were scattered. Only this subordinate is lucky not to fail the mission and sought of the truth of the darkness. May Heavenly Teacher allow this subordinate to return to my position."

Saint Woodcutter was silent, and light flowed in his eyes, but it never flowed out. After a moment, he entered the darkness and held up Ning Jin's arm. "Soldier of Heavenly Words Division, your mission is completed."

"Thank you, Heavenly Teacher!"

Ning Jin got up, and his body was straight. He was like a soldier that was waiting for inspection, and he shouted, "Ning Jin request to return to Heavenly Words Division!"

Saint Woodcutter revealed a smile and said, "Founding Emperor Era has been wiped out, I've failed all of you, Heavenly Words Division has also been disbanded. Ning Jin, you are free..."


Ning Jin was in a daze and stared with his eyes wide open, apparently still unable to face the fact. He said with much difficulty, "Heavenly Teacher, it's been twenty thousand years, I have always been waiting to return... Heavenly Teacher, Ning Jing is back to report, may I return to my position!"

Saint Woodcutter frowned. "Founding Emperor Celestial Heavens is already finished, there's no more Heavenly Words Division. You are free now, Ning Jin..."

The god of Founding Emperor had a trembling voice as he cried out with a hoarse voice, "Ning Jin wishes to return to my position!"

Saint Woodcutter was silent for a long time, and his voice was also trembling slightly. It was very hard for him to reveal his true emotions, yet at that moment, he had to suppress his Dao heart to speak out word by word, "Soldier of Founding Emperor, Heavenly Words Division, Ning Jin, I allow you to return to your position!"

Ning Jin revealed a smile and continued to cry out loud.

Saint Woodcutter pat his shoulder with a complicated gaze, and he no longer spoke.

Qin Mu looked at them. What kind of emperor must one be to have such a soldier? Founding Emperor?

But he was hiding in Carefree Village, and once he had hidden, it had continued for twenty thousand years. He probably has forgotten about the bunch of followers that would follow him even to death.

'The gods of Founding Emperor never owed us Qin family anything. They don't owe anything. It's the Qin family that owe these loyal and righteous men,' he thought to himself.

Xu Shenghua asked curiously, "Cult Master Qin, for what reason have you invited us over?"

Qin Mu told them about his experience in Heavenly Yin World and said, "Everyone here surpasses me in intelligence, I can't solve Goddess of Heavenly Yin's problem so you guys might be able to think of an idea."

Everyone stared with their eyes wide open, seemingly finding his words hard to believe. Saint Woodcutter knew Qin Mu had followed Elder Angler to fish the suns and the moons. He didn't expect that Elder Angler was gone and the brat had actually run into Heavenly Yin World!

'I dispatched fifty-eight gods from Heavenly Words Division to scout Heavenly Yin World, none of them came back alive, and he just barged in like that.'

Saint Woodcutter shook his head secretly and thought to himself, 'This brat is the same as that big disciple of mine, they're both fearless. My big disciple is doing this to become a saint, but what is he doing it for? It couldn't be just for satisfying his curiosity, right?'

He was truly helpless toward Qin Mu. The dangers of Heavenly Yin World could be imagined, and yet Qin Mu could live to return and even revive Goddess of Heavenly Yin who had died for countless years.

That kind of experience and opportunity, as well as the method of solving the problem, was something even he felt inconceivable.

"Cult Master Qin, who did you say are the people that surpassed you in intelligence?"

Xu Shenghua gave a rare smile and held his laughter back. "Can Cult Master repeat that sentence?"

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor coughed and said, "I would also like to hear second senior brother say it once more."

First Ancestor Human Emperor said with a smile, "Me too. Mu'er, repeat the sentence you said just now."

King Yama's voice came from far away as though it was coming from Fengdu. "To be able to hear praise from such a proud person admitting he's not as smart as us, I'm content."

They were all ruthlessly beaten down by Qin Mu before. There was no explanation needed for First Ancestor, and Xu Shenghua had also been won over by Qin Mu. Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor was even more astonished at the Primordial Spirit Guide and Three Primordial Spirit Assembly. He was even more astonished at the eighteenth sword form that Qin Mu had created.

As for King Yama, there was no need to mention what had happened. Being beaten up in Hall of King Qin was a shadow he had to bear for the rest of his life.

Qin Mu's face was black as ink, and he sneered. "There are only four people among you guys that are smarter than me, think of the one who is not smarter than me."

Once he said that everyone fell into deep thoughts.

First Ancestor sighed and had a depressed look on his face. He thought to himself, 'He wasn't willing to learn my Heaven and Earth Mudra, he must have felt my mudra skills aren't as good as his..."

King Yama felt he wasn't as smart as the brat as well and sighed to himself. His body faded into the darkness. The corners of Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor's eyes trembled, and he didn't say a word.

Xu Shenghua thought it over in detail and felt that even though he surpassed Qin Mu in certain aspects, he still didn't have the confidence to defeat him. Thus, he was also slightly disappointed.

"There's a rumor from ancient times of killing three soldiers with one peach, and now Qin Mu has beaten down four wise men with just one sentence."

Saint Woodcutter said with a smile, "You guys don't have to be at a loss, he is never as smart as us. He is the overlord body, he has good assets naturally, but he is only on Celestial Being Realm now. It shows his brain is stupid, that's why his cultivation is held back. Let's go, let us visit Goddess of Heavenly Yin in Heavenly Yin World."

Qin Mu retorted with a low voice, "Teacher's cultivation is the lowest among the four great heavenly teachers, it shows how stupid you are as well."

Saint Woodcutter took out his ax and whetstone to sharpen his ax. Sparks flew, and Qin Mu stopped talking. He hurriedly brought them to Heavenly Yin World.

The dragon qilin didn't dare to enter Heavenly Yin World, and Qin Mu could only let him follow He Yiyi to repair the roads.

Everyone looked down, and they saw darkness flowing about. The black sand had drowned out everything, and there was only a high tower suppressing the monster in the darkness. They were forced to the boundaries of Heavenly Yin World.

"This is the black soul sand and the starved ghosts?"

Everyone looked around. It was also the first time Yan Jingjing had gone there, and she was very curious.

Xu Shenghua's cultivation was the lowest, and he was on Celestial Being Realm like Qin Mu. He tried to touch the darkness, and Saint Woodcutter shook his head. "Be careful of the starved ghosts. They have extremely fast speed."

Xu Shenghua said with a smile, "The starved ghosts are being suppressed by that tower over there, they can't come over. I want to catch one, so we can research them in detail."

"Wait a moment!"

Qin Mu disappeared into the darkness, and after a moment, he appeared again with a starved ghost in his hand.

Xu Shenghua was about to examine it in detail when Saint Woodcutter said, "Let us greet the goddess first, we can't forget our manners."

Everyone went to the seashore, and they could see Goddess of Heavenly Yin sitting from a distance away. Everyone raised their heads to look, and their hearts trembled violently.

"Mingdu's Black Deity could kill such a powerful ancient god, so how astonishing are his abilities?"

Qin Mu led everyone forward, and Goddess of Heavenly Yin examined them curiously. "Great Wizard, are these people the ones you said are smarter than you?"

"Goddess, this is my teacher, Woodcutter. He is the pillar of Founding Emperor Era's reform. This is Imperial Preceptor, and he is the pillar of the current era's reform. This is King Yama of Fengdu, he took a part of Youdu as his territory and occupies the Great Ruins, he has extremely high attainments in the art of the soul. This is First Ancestor Human Emperor, and he created Sacred Secrets of Heaven and Earth Heart. The level of his technique reached Luminous Sky, but that was something that was twenty thousand years ago. At that time, he was only a prince that was seeking knowledge. Even though he has been wasted for these twenty thousand years, his aptitudes and comprehension are outstanding. This is Xu Shenghua. He's a pseudo overlord body, and he could also create a grand feat such as combining the Seven Stars and Six Directions, those two great divine treasures."

Qin Mu introduced them one by one and said, "I'm frequently stunned by their intelligence, and I admire their knowledge very much. Their intelligence isn't inferior to Son of Heaven Yin, and maybe we could help Goddess of Heavenly Yin completely solve the problem in Heavenly Yin World."

Everyone gave a greeting. "We pay our respects to goddess."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin raised her hand and said, "Everyone, there's no need for formalities. Great Wizard helped me to think of two ideas that treat the symptoms but can't solve the root cause of the problem in Heavenly Yin World. Since all of you have wisdom that surpasses others, can you guess what the two ideas the Great Wizard thought of?"

She didn't trust that they could defeat Qin Mu's in terms of intelligence, so she wanted to test them.

Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor muttered and said, "Could it be hanging a sun in Heavenly Yin World?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin's eyes lit up.

Xu Shenghua raised his head to look at the sky. He pondered and said, "Maybe it is to drill a hole on Heaven Duke's sole and steal Heaven Duke's power."

First Ancestor Human Emperor gave some thoughts and said, "I feel it should be taking the statue of a god to block the crack where Heavenly Yin World and Great Ruins are connected, making the darkness unable to flood into the Great Ruins."

King Yama shook his head and said, "That won't do, Heavenly Yin World will still be in chaos. Human Emperor Qin's idea is definitely to release the other him that's suppressed in the heart of his brows, to let him, whose nose is stuck all up on the top of his head, to swallow all of the starved ghosts and darkness here. Earth Count shouldn't be able to come here so he can't invite Earth Count. He can only invite that ruffian."

Goddess of Heavenly Yin was surprised and delighted. There were actually two more ideas than what Qin Mu had suggested, and it showed that their wisdom was truly a cut above the rest!

She hurriedly looked at Saint Woodcutter and asked politely, "Why hasn't Dao friend mention your solution?"

Saint Woodcutter pondered and said, "I was thinking if goddess had been schemed against by Black Deity and been eaten up by the starved ghosts, then goddess would also have become a starved ghost after you died, am I right? If goddess can come back to life, it shows that the problem of the starved ghosts has already been solved, so why do we still need to think of other ideas?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin's mind was blown, and she cried out, "So you are then the smartest one in the world!"

"I'm not."

Saint Woodcutter said righteously. "The one that revived goddess is probably even wiser than I am. May I ask goddess, who is this person?"

Goddess of Heavenly Yin looked at Qin Mu, and Qin Mu smiled silently. However, he couldn't conceal his pleased look.

Saint Woodcutter took a glance at him and said indifferently, "He clearly has a solution yet he doesn't know it himself. This shows he isn't very smart."

Qin Mu's face was black like iron.
