"Brother Qin, Brother Mu!"
Son of Heaven Yin appeared behind this young man, and he said with a smile, "And also Senior Niu Ben! You guys have created an enormous disaster! This Jade Pool belongs to Celestial Empress, now that you have smashed it into bits, Celestial Empress might cause trouble for you. Celestial Venerable Yu, these three are the Senior Brother Qin Kai, Senior Brother Mu Qing, and Senior Niu Ben I've mentioned to you earlier."
Only then did Celestial Venerable Ling know their names and it was even their fake name.
She was completely focused on researching, so she was slightly slow in other matters. She felt Qin Mu and Founding Emperor were friends on the same path as her, so she forgot to ask for their names.
Qin Mu looked at that young man and thought to himself, 'He's Celestial Venerable Yu? The first person to open up the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure?'
Celestial Venerable Yu was the person who had determined the divine treasures cultivation system, and he could even be the person who had opened up the celestial palaces cultivation system. He awakened his spirit embryo and even allowed the primordial spirit to soar into the celestial palaces. It might be common to the people in the future, and even though it was very difficult, there were still countless gods that had managed to do so.
Yet to the people in the past who didn't know how to cultivate, this was definitely a grand feat that was as good as the creation of the world!
Celestial Venerable Yu had created the divine treasures cultivation system from nothing, so he was definitely worthy of the title of Celestial Venerable!
Qin Mu examined Celestial Venerable Yu, and he was like jade. He was gentle, tranquil, and calm. He stood there like a Jasper tree, his gaze was like exquisite dews, and his heart was full of colors.
Qin Mu greeted, and he said with a smile, "I've long heard of Celestial Venerable Yu's great name, only now did I finally meet you. You truly live up to your name."
Celestial Venerable Yu said, "Brother Mu and Brother Qin's paths, skills, and divine arts earlier have astonished the Jade Pool, and this made me realize there are always people that are better. Senior Niu Ben's abilities are even shocking and made me envious. Forgive me for being slow-witted for not hearing the names of the three of you. May I ask where you have come from?"
Qin Mu and Founding Emperor looked at each other in the eye, and Founding Emperor said politely, "We are people from small places. The name of Celestial Venerable Yu is known throughout the world, and since you are hosting the Jade Pool Meeting, we had come when we heard the news. It's just that our tempers aren't good so we will start fighting once we fall out. We were impudent, may we seek Celestial Venerable Yu's forgiveness."
Celestial Venerable Yu smiled and said, "This is not a problem. This place is destroyed, but I've already gotten people to come and fix it. This isn't a place to talk, why don't three guests come to our small construction in the Jade Pool, that's Celestial Empress's side palace. It's much sturdier than this place."
Celestial Venerable Ling wasn't too willing, and she was about to give her opinion when Celestial Venerable Yu smiled and said warmly, "Celestial Venerable Ling, your palace is also destroyed, so it's not a place for you to settle down in. Let's go to the Empress' side palace."
Celestial Venerable Ling gave it some thought and could only nod her head.
Celestial Venerable Yu led the way in front, and his gaze sparkled. "Brother Qin, Brother Mu, I see both of your paths, skills, and divine arts are refined and out of the ordinary. Your techniques are sacred and surpassed every living being. Both your attainments are already extremely high and reached a level that I don't even understand. May I ask who did both of you learn from?"
"We figured out things blindly," Qin Mu grunted.
Founding Emperor said with a smile, "Our temper isn't good, so we fight every time we meet. As we fought, our paths, skills, and divine arts became better and better. Celestial Venerable Yu is the genius, you created divine arts and bless the future generations, you impress me."
Son of Heaven Yin revealed a look of suspicion and thought to himself, 'Back on the big kun's back, they seemed to have just met for the first time, they don't know each other. Why is Qin Kai saying the more they fought, the more their paths, skills, and divine arts improved? This sentence doesn't seem to be the truth."
Even though he thought of this point, he didn't clarify.
Celestial Venerable Yu frowned slightly and said with a smile, "I won't force both of you if you don't want to delve into detail. Even though there are numerous divine arts practitioners that are attending this meeting, and there are so many talents, the one that is truly worthy to look at are the three of you. After crossing this floating bridge, it will be the small construction in the Jade Pool, it isn't destroyed."
In front, a floating bridge stretched across the sky, and there was no support. The bridge extended continuously and floated on the sea. Numerous divine arts practitioners walked on the bridge and headed for the other island.
Qin Mu looked back and saw that the treasured island of the Jade Pool was heavily damaged by them. Numerous half-gods flew over and were repairing those palaces that were destroyed.
Celestial Venerable Yu looked at the shimmering sea surface as he walked. Far away, two ancient gods pulled out that ancient god that was stuck in the sea. That ancient god had fainted from the old bull's beating, and his head was stuck in the sea.
There were also some old turtles rising up to the sea surface. The sacred mountains rose from the bottom of the sea, and the seawater flowed down the mountain to form waterfalls.
This was the destruction caused by the old bull's temper.
"Celestial Emperor's breadth of mind is very wide, he won't take it to heart."
Celestial Venerable Yu said with a smile that was not a smile, "However, Celestial Empress would throw a small tantrum, the three of you need to be slightly careful... Celestial Venerable You!"
He stopped a youth, and that youth was also walking toward the small construction of the Jade Pool. As he was walking, he was throwing rune after rune into the sea surface with utter boredom.
Qin Mu's heart stirred. The runes that this Celestial Venerable You was throwing seemed similar to the writings of Youdu. When the runes got thrown into the sea, he blew up several huge fishes.
'Celestial Venerable You who opened up the Life and Death Divine Treasure? Why does he have the temper of a child?' He was puzzled.
Celestial Venerable You had a small pigtail soaring upwards, and he had a snot bubble coming out from his nostril. On the back of his head was a devil mask, and the mask was a smiling face. Yet under the eyes of the mask had a streak of tear each.
This celestial venerable seemed to be different from the other few celestial venerables. He seemed to keep to himself, and even when Celestial Venerable Yu was talking to him, he didn't seem to want to pay attention to him. He looked at Celestial Venerable Yu before turning to look at Qin Mu and Founding Emperor. After that, he continued to throw his Youdu runes in boredom.
Qin Mu looked at Celestial Venerable You curiously. He had opened up the Life and Death Divine Treasure, so it was natural he was proficient in Youdu runes. He must be skilled in Youdu divine arts as well.
In this ancient era, being skilled in Youdu divine arts meant he understood life and death. This was already a very remarkable achievement.
"Celestial Venerable You..."
Qin Mu took out a small booklet and asked with a smile, "Can I get your autograph?"
Celestial Venerable You took a glance at him and suddenly became excited when he saw the heart of his brows. "The eye in the heart of your brows looks strange."
Qin Mu was astonished and said with a smile, "You've seen through me. My abilities are too strong, so I have to seal my eye, this is to prevent me from causing any trouble."
Celestial Venerable You raised his hand and wanted to peel off the willow leaf, but Qin Mu hurriedly blocked.
Celestial Venerable You was instantly unhappy. He jumped down from the floating bridge. "I'll not take a look at it then, I don't care!"
Qin Mu looked down the bridge and saw that Celestial Venerable You didn't land on the sea surface. Instead, he took out a small paper boat, and it expanded in size. He landed on the paper boat, and that boat sailed towards the island that the small construction was on.
"This paper boat..."
Qin Mu was stunned. That devil mask behind Celestial Venerable You's head suddenly opened its mouth and stuck his tongue out at him.
Qin Mu jumped in shock, and that mask changed back to normal.
"Don't take it to heart, Celestial Venerable You always has the temper of a child."
Celestial Venerable Yu said, "He lost his father when he was very young, and it was his mother who brought him up. However, his mother was frail and sick, she was always plagued by illness. When I first met him, he already didn't like to talk. He was only ten and was taking care of his mother, who was paralyzed in bed. He told me he wanted to create a method so that his mother wouldn't die. After several years, he opened up his Life and Death Divine Treasure."
Founding Emperor said, "He is a filial child, however, opening the Life and Death Divine Treasure can't save his mother's life."
Son of Heaven Yin who was on the side, said, "I heard his mother died before he opened up the Life and Death Divine Treasure and he kept to himself even more. He even said he was going to see Earth Count and snatch his mother's soul back, he's truly daring."
He shook his head.
Celestial Venerable Yu said, "Actually, he has already met Earth Count."
Son of Heaven Yin was slightly stunned. Celestial Venerable Yu continued to say, "When he opened up the Life and Death Divine Treasure, Earth Count had come to see him. He pleaded with Earth Count to take back the title of celestial venerable, he didn't want Earth Count to grant him immortality either. He only pleaded for his mother to never die. Yet at that time, his mother had already died, and her soul had entered Youdu. Earth Count is impartial, and he won't change the rules of Youdu for him, that's why he said he was going to enter Youdu to snatch his mother's soul back."
Qin Mu looked at the paper boat that had floated over, and the figure of another person appeared in his mind. That person was also boarding a small boat, and it was the elder who always sat under the lantern at the bow of the boat.
Would he be that Benevolent Saintly King Equal to Heaven?
If he was, how did Celestial Venerable You become Benevolent Saint King Equal to Heaven over the years?
Had he managed to save his mother from Earth Count?
The paper boat sailed forward silently, and the youth on the boat wore an expression that cries in his smile.
Qin Mu was stunned. He recalled his own mother.
Celestial Venerable Yu said, "Brother Mu seems to have a load on your mind."
Qin Mu forced a smile. "When I see Celestial Venerable You, it reminds me of myself. Fellow sufferers empathize with each other."
Celestial Venerable Yu seemed to be in deep thoughts, and he said with a smile, "With Brother Mu's current abilities, it's natural for you to be conferred the title of celestial venerable as well. I'm prepared to report to Celestial Venerable, and he might confer Brother Qin and Brother Mu as Celestial Venerable Qin and Celestial Venerable Mu. When that time comes, there will be nine celestial venerables."
He laughed loudly.
Son of Heaven Yin didn't have a good expression, and a hint of disappointment and jealousy couldn't help growing in his heart.
Founding Emperor shook his head and said, "The title of celestial venerable is given to people with great achievements, I'm not worthy to have that title. Brother Mu and I..."
Qin Mu sneered and said, "Don't call me Brother Mu, I'm unworthy!"
Founding Emperor raised his eyebrow and snorted. Behind them, the old bull who had been keeping silent gave a cough, and he revealed an obvious hint of threat.
Celestial Venerable Yu saw these and gave a slight smile. 'These three people are really weird.'
Founding Emperor continued to say, "Even though Mu Qing and I have great paths, skills, and divine arts, we don't have any world astonishing achievements, we are unworthy of this title."
Celestial Venerable Yu laughed and said, "Both senior brothers, if both of you aren't worthy, who else is worthy? The battle you two had on the Jade Pool Treasured Island was far more than breathtaking, it was simply universally stunning! Truth to be told, I feel that my paths, skills, and divine arts aren't bad and the only ones in the world that could surpass me are ancient gods, the rest are all ordinary. However, when I met both of you, only then did I know the immensity of heaven and earth, only then did I know what true paths, skills, and divine arts are! Both of you are the founders of paths, skills, and divine arts, only the two of you are worthy of the celestial venerable title!"
He said with a smile, "If you feel you are unworthy, we, the Seven Celestial Venerables, will have to be stripped of our title and return into seclusion!"
Qin Mu blinked his eyes. This Celestial Venerable Yu was indeed a hero among the people. No matter if it was his words or his works, they all made people felt like they were being bathed in the spring wind. He was really smooth and slick.
This kind of person was a natural leader, and he could make people have a very good impression of him subconsciously!
In front, they had come to the small construction of the Jade Pool.
When they arrived, only then did Qin Mu know what was small construction.
It was normal for the palace to be luxurious, this was the side palace of Celestial Empress after all. However, the most shocking part was that this palace was simply too huge. It was huge beyond belief!
Just the pillar in front of the door was over six hundred yards!
Everything here was several hundred times to a thousand times bigger than ordinary sized objects!
One could imagine the Celestial Empress who lived here was probably a hundred times taller than ordinary people!
Celestial Venerable Yu said, "After the Celestial Heavens Meeting ends and the name of the celestial heavens is determined, I will send a memorial up and request Celestial Emperor to confer the title."
Qin Mu gave his thanks and said with a smile, "If I'm able to have the title of celestial venerable, I will definitely be full of gratitude to Celestial Venerable Yu!"
Founding Emperor frowned. "This person called Mu Qing truly knows how to curry favor!"
The old bull beside him coughed, and Founding Emperor could only hold himself back to prevent this god from going crazy again.
Celestial Venerable Yu laughed and said, "This is a small thing, you guys deserve it, I'm just helping to fight for it. Truth to be told, I want to do two things in this Jade Pool Meeting. The first is that I've found a way to become immortal and push all of the divine arts practitioners in the world one step further, for them to be equal to gods. Furthermore, their cultivation will also grow higher and higher. The second thing is..."
"Brother Qin, Brother Mu!"
