Qin Mu and the old bull stared with their eyes wide open. Founding Emperor also gave a look of disbelief, and the three of them were speechless.
Zhu Que'er saw their expression and was very satisfied. "After this matter got blown up, Celestial Empress was very unhappy, and she created quite a ruckus. Celestial Emperor had to give up on his human body and return to the celestial heavens. Celestial Empress created another ruckus. Many people know about this matter in the celestial heavens, but no one said anything. Afterward, when Celestial Venerable Hao rose to power, he was indeed remarkable. However, Celestial Empress treated Celestial Venerable Yu very well, can you guess the reason behind this?"
The old bull immediately said, "Celestial Empress wanted to take revenge on Celestial Emperor, so she slept with Celestial Venerable Yu!"
Founding Emperor and Qin Mu coughed, and their faces turned red.
"There wasn't a need to go so far, she wanted to support Celestial Venerable Yu and beat down on her sister and Celestial Emperor's son."
Zhu Que'er gave some thought and became curious. "Does Celestial Empress have that kind of thought though? Maybe she really did sleep with Celestial Venerable Yu, we can't say for sure... That's right, why does Celestial Venerable Hao want to kill Celestial Venerable Yu? Could it be that Celestial Emperor realized Celestial Empress cheated and got Celestial Venerable Hao to do his work?"
Qin Mu couldn't resist breaking her train of thought. "Big sister, it was Celestial Empress' sister that used her magic power to cover the Slow Winding Pavilion, making Celestial Venerable Yu unable to escape or even call for help."
Zhu Que'er's eyes lit up. "Discord between sisters? Vying for affection? Killing one to warn the rest? What great drama!"
Qin Mu blinked his eyes and thought to himself, 'This sister's thoughts seem to be slightly different from mine. I feel that the reason Celestial Venerable Hao wanted to get rid of Celestial Venerable Yu was that his reputation was becoming too great. Only by getting rid of Celestial Venerable Yu could he become the leader of the half-gods and the humans. When the half-gods and the humans develop in the future, he will have hope of aspiring to the throne.'
Zhu Que'er obviously didn't think that way. She was still excited over the concubines of Celestial Emperor fighting each other, and it was completely different from what Qin Mu and the rest were thinking.
Founding Emperor's expression dimmed. "Celestial Venerable Yu was a genius of an era. It's a pity for him to suffer just like this. Whether or not Celestial Emperor partook in this, we don't know."
Zhu Que'er's earlier excitement was kept under control, and she said indifferently, "If the son of Celestial Emperor couldn't be compared to a human, wouldn't that be telling the people of the world that the bloodline of ancient gods is inferior to an ordinary human?"
Qin Mu and Founding Emperor's heart trembled violently, and they were dumbfounded.
Zhu Que'er wiped the solemn expression off her face and said with a smile, "Good brother, just stay here at big sister's place first. I shall go out and take a look at the show. The little slut must be creating quite a ruckus now!"
Qin Mu stared with his eyes wide open. Zhu Que'er was obviously wishing for the whole world to be in chaos as she quickly rushed out.
"This big sister is even more excited than me, the person involved in all this..."
Qin Mu shook his head and said to Founding Emperor, "Was what Sister Que'er said earlier true? Did Celestial Emperor really incite Celestial Venerable Hao?"
Founding Emperor shook his head. "I've never seen Celestial Emperor before, so I don't know his character and can't make a good deduction. However, there is this possibility. If what South Deity said is true, Celestial Emperor is playing with fire. Celestial Venerable Hao's ambition is extremely huge, and when the half-gods and all of the races after the beginning of heaven develop, his position wouldn't be secure anymore!"
Qin Mu frowned.
The old bull jumped in shock and hurriedly said, "Celestial Emperor has such remarkable abilities and is even the birth father of Celestial Venerable Hao, would Celestial Venerable Hao have that kind of ambition?"
Founding Emperor said, "Ever since the ancient times, when the emperor lives too long, the crown prince would find it harder to sit still and would want the emperor to die sooner. Since Celestial Emperor won't age and die, the only way for Celestial Venerable Hao to take the throne is to make a move on Celestial Emperor. Furthermore, after the different races and the half-gods rise in power, they would request for more benefits. Celestial Venerable Hao will have no choice but to make a move then."
Qin Mu's heart stirred slightly, and he said, "I was thinking, Celestial Venerable Yu told us the first thing was to let all races be able to cultivate and be equal to gods. What could be the second thing he wanted to say?"
Founding Emperor looked over, and when they looked at each other in the eyes, they knew what each other was thinking.
Founding Emperor said, "If Celestial Venerable Yu didn't die, it might be possible. Now that Celestial Venerable Yu is dead, the other celestial venerables wouldn't be his match. Celestial Venerable Hao would be in charge of the power of the half-gods, and he also has quite a number of followers from the different races. Firstly, he has such a big power and secondly, with his status as the son of Celestial Emperor, no one can match up to him. He would lead one of the heavens in the three heavens of Dragon Han, and it would be the strongest one!"
Qin Mu said, "The other celestial venerables, none of them will be his match. There's still one more party to the three heavens of Dragon Han, so where is this party from?"
Founding Emperor shook his head. "This is probably not what we should be worrying about."
The old bull was muddle-headed from listening to them. "What are you guys talking about? Aren't you talking about the second thing that Celestial Venerable Yu wanted to say? Why are the three heavens of Dragon Han dragged into this?"
Qin Mu explained, "The second thing that Celestial Venerable Yu wanted to say is after imparting the method of immortality, there will be more and more gods from the human race and the other races, they would attract fear and get beat down sooner or later. He plans to fight for benefits for all the races, and this is the third pole in the three heavens of Dragon Han."
The old bull said with a smile, "Wouldn't it be settled by forming a Little Celestial Heavens?"
"Who is going to form it?"
Qin Mu was worried. "We will be returning to our own era in just a few days' time, and no one would be staying back. No one can stay back either."
Founding Emperor nodded his head. "Among the Nine Celestial Venerables, Celestial Venerable Yu is dead, Celestial Venerable Qin and Celestial Venerable Mu are missing, and the rest of the celestial venerables are no match for Celestial Venerable Hao. Furthermore, these few celestial venerables are all like scattered sand, it's hard for them to form the third pole."
Qin Mu was silent for a moment and said, "I have an idea to firm the third pole. However, after the three heavens of Dragon Han, exactly which side is the winner?"
Founding Emperor's heart jumped, and he looked at him.
Qin Mu continued to say, "Was the winner the first pole, ancient gods' celestial heavens, or the second pole, half-gods' celestial heavens, or even the third pole? That extraterritorial celestial heavens that destroyed Crimson Light Era and High Emperor Era, which pole is it among the three poles?"
Founding Emperor was silent. Now was the beginning of Dragon Han Era. It was the first year of Dragon Han, so the second pole and the third pole had not yet appeared.
No one knew which side had achieved the final victory through the incomparably long-lasting years of Dragon Han Era and become the behemoth that rules over all.
"Just nurse your injuries at ease."
Founding Emperor revealed a smile. "History naturally has its own path. We aren't people of this era, so we don't have to consider so much. We just need to return to our own era and face all of it without fear!"
Qin Mu nodded his head gently, but he thought to himself, 'However, we have returned to the past and become history. This third pole must be established.'
After a few days, his injuries healed, and Zhu Que'er had returned to the palace. She talked excitedly to them about what she had seen in the Jade Pool.
"There is already news leaking out."
She said excitedly, "Celestial Venerable Hao has fainted, and he's still in a coma now. Celestial Emperor is furious, and he has given the order to investigate this case. However, there are no air-tight walls in this world. Soon, news spread out that Celestial Venerable Hao murdered Celestial Venerable Yu and thus Celestial Venerable Yu had come back to life to take revenge on Celestial Venerable Hao. Those divine arts practitioners broke into an uproar. People deduced many schemes, and the news was abuzz. There are all kinds of explanations out there."
Qin Mu blinked his eyes and said, "In that case, where did the news come from?"
Zhu Que'er blushed slightly, and she said, "I only spoke a little truth, I merely said that Celestial Venerable Yu was taking revenge on Celestial Venerable Hao."
Founding Emperor and the old bull were unable to restrain a smile.
"There was also someone who smeared sh*t on Celestial Emperor's head and said it was Celestial Emperor who planned this murder! The rumors spread as if they were true! This wasn't said by me."
Zhu Que'er was full of smiles and jumped onto her nest. She sat in her Vermillion Bird Sacred Fire and swung her legs happily. "But I know who said it."
The old bull asked curiously, "Big sister, who said it?"
Qin Mu and Founding Emperor had weird expressions as they took a glance at this bull.
Founding Emperor thought to himself, 'Senior Niu Ben learns fast.'
"Of course it's Celestial Empress."
Zhu Que'er smiled and said, "Celestial Empress is also an intelligent person and naturally knew who laid their hands on Celestial Venerable Yu. The sisters are probably fighting it out in the chambers. However, Celestial Empress' sister later said it was Celestial Venerable Mu who killed Celestial Venerable Yu, and Celestial Venerable Mu had later tried to kill Celestial Venerable Hao, trying to push the blame onto little brother. However, people with a keen eye instantly knew there were many loopholes in her words. Numerous divine arts practitioners are planning to leave the celestial heavens, but the celestial heavens is tightening the security now to search all palaces for Niu Ben, Celestial Venerable Qin, and Celestial Venerable Mu, thus forbidding everyone from leaving. Those divine arts practitioners began to quarrel, and so they started fighting with the half-gods. It's truly lively."
She walked around excitedly and said, "The celestial heavens is in turmoil and a hideous mess. Golden Guards even planned to search my Vermillion Bird Palace and got thrown out by me. How could those brutes barge in big sister's celestial palace and my chamber?"
Qin Mu could totally imagine this female ancient goddess throwing a fit.
"However, it's about time for you guys to leave."
Zhu Que'er suddenly calmed down and took a look at Qin Mu and the rest. "I've heard the news that Celestial Emperor has requested Earth Count to make a move and got him to check the Life and Death Divine Treasure of everyone in the world. The three of you have to be found no matter what. Since Celestial Emperor has personally invited him, Earth Count will definitely give him face. You might not know of Earth Count's magic power, but if he wanted to check on all lives, no one can hide from his eyes!"
Qin Mu, Founding Emperor, and the old bull were all astonished.
Earth Count indeed had this ability!
The Earth Count now still didn't know them, so if he found them, he would definitely catch them and bring them to Celestial Emperor.
Suddenly, Qin Mu said, "When Earth Count makes a move to investigate all lives and all gods in the celestial heavens, that would be the time darkness shrouds the celestial heavens. We have indeed come to the time where we should leave."
Founding Emperor and the old bull were puzzled. It was their first time returning to the past, but Qin Mu had already experienced it once.
"Big sister, can you invite Celestial Venerable Ling over?"
Qin Mu said, "I still have certain things I want to tell her."
"This is simple, I'll just get someone to summon her."
Zhu Que'er instructed her maids, and after waiting for a long time, the maid announced outside the chamber, "Goddess, Celestial Venerable Ling has arrived."
Celestial Venerable Ling walked into the hall and was slightly stunned when she saw Qin Mu and the rest. She hadn't seen Qin Mu's real face before, so she didn't recognize him. However, she recognized Founding Emperor.
Celestial Venerable Ling walked up and greeted Zhu Que'er. "Nice to meet you, Goddess Zhu Que."
Zhu Que'er waved her hands and said with a smile, "Stay here and talk, I'll go out and take a look. Earth Count should be making his move soon."
Qin Mu's face changed, and Celestial Venerable Ling looked at him with a dazed look. She cried out, "Celestial Venerable Mu! You, you..."
Qin Mu said firmly, "Sister Ling, we are leaving, thus I want you to witness this and not give up hope."
Celestial Venerable Ling's heart was flustered. "You are leaving? Where to? What about the human race? Who is going to be the leader? Also what about Celestial Venerable Yu, he's still in the coffin..."
Qin Mu revealed a smile and said softly, "The world is full of evil, the human race has to be united, and all of the races after the beginning of heaven should also be united. Niu Ben, Qin Kai, and I won't be able to remain in this place, we can only look back at your history."
Celestial Venerable Ling was even more helpless and at a loss.
Qin Mu couldn't bear to see her like this and asked in a soft voice, "Are you willing to join Heaven Alliance?"
Celestial Venerable Ling was slightly stunned. "Heaven Alliance?"
"Join Heaven Alliance, attract more capable and righteous people to join as well and form our own power..."
Qin Mu was about to elaborate when Zhu Que'er's voice rang out from outside the chamber, "Earth Count has made his move! The darkness is about to reach here!"
Qin Mu walked out of the palace, and Celestial Venerable Ling suddenly shouted loudly, "I'm willing to!"
Qin Mu turned back and revealed a radiant smile. "In that case, Sister Ling will be the leader of Heaven Alliance in Dragon Han Era. Sister Ling, let us meet again in the future!"
He walked out of the hall with wide steps and, far away, the darkness came pouring over like a flood, swallowing everything in its path!
Qin Mu bowed to the ground to Zhu Que'er. "Big sister, little brother is leaving. I will never forget big sister's kindness in taking us in!"
The darkness poured over and swallowed his figure.
Qin Mu and the old bull stared with their eyes wide open. Founding Emperor also gave a look of disbelief, and the three of them were speechless.
