Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 749 - The Ashes and Dust of a Million Years

According to Qin Mu's experience, traveling back to the past through the fog in the Surging River only gave a 'half-day' of time. This 'half-day' didn't refer to twelve hours. It wasn't a precise timing, and instead, it was the darkness replacing the light.

There was no darkness in the celestial heavens, and it was always bright like daytime.

When they come here, no matter how much time passed, it would still be daytime. As long as night didn't arrive, it wouldn't even be a half-day.

When Earth Count made a move, that would be different.

The darkness of Youdu shrouded the celestial heavens and caused the darkness to descend in an instant, thus achieving the requirements to return to the future.

In the darkness, Qin Mu waved at Zhu Que'er and Celestial Venerable Ling. He, Founding Emperor, and the old bull's figures were like pitch-black sand drawing in the flowing darkness, scattering with the wind.

Celestial Venerable Ling's mind was blown, and she looked at this sight in a daze.

Zhu Que'er also looked like she had seen a ghost. She hurriedly came to where Qin Mu, Founding Emperor, and the old bull were and she touched around. However, the three people seemed to vanish into thin air!

"How strange, how strange!" Zhu Que'er was beyond astonished.

Waves were raised in Celestial Venerable Ling's heart, and she subconsciously remembered what Qin Mu had told her. "Maybe sometime in the future, you will meet someone who has returned to the past through your divine art and proved to the world that their opinion of you is wrong."

Her expression was entranced, and she looked at Zhu Que'er, who was still searching for them with a dazed look.

'Does this world really have a divine art that allows a substance to not change, not move, not transform, not increase, and not decrease, is it created by me?'

The waves in her heart became incomparably strong confidence and created a belief for her to continue her research. 'I will create it, in the future, Celestial Venerable Mu and Celestial Venerable Qin will come back in time through my divine art and encourage me! I can definitely do it!'

She swept the setback she had received from Celestial Venerable Yu's death and picked up her spirits once again.

Qin Mu and Founding Emperor had researched for a very long time with her, and they had used their knowledge to help her pave the first step.

What she had to do was continue to pave new steps until she finally succeeded in creating an ultimate technique that would astonish the world!

She bade farewell to South Deity Zhu Que'er and walked towards the Jade Pool.

She met Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Yun on the way and greeted them.

Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Yun gave off looks of surprise, as Celestial Venerable Ling was a girl with a strange temper in their memory. She would never greet anyone. If other people greeted her and she didn't like that person, she wouldn't reply at all.

And now she was actually taking the initiative to greet them. The sun had truly risen from the west.

"Celestial Venerable Ling, please don't leave in a hurry."

Celestial Venerable Yue suddenly stopped her, and Celestial Venerable Ling stopped in her footsteps to turn around. Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Yun looked at each other in the eyes, and both of them came to her side. They said with a low voice, "Many things have happened in the Jade Pool Meeting and Celestial Venerable Yu died. Celestial Venerable Hao got severely injured by Celestial Venerable Mu and Celestial Emperor has ordered Celestial Venerable Mu and Celestial Venerable Qin to be arrested. However, there are too many things here."

Celestial Venerable Ling listened quietly.

Celestial Venerable Yue mustered her courage and suppressed her voice, "We can see that it was Celestial Venerable Hao that killed Celestial Venerable Yu and that Celestial Venerable Mu took revenge for Celestial Venerable Yu. The rumors going around these few days aren't just empty talk. Celestial Emperor and Celestial Empress, they are all involved. The conflict between half-gods and the races has already begun. As the leader of the races, we have to be on guard."

Celestial Venerable Yun on the side said, "Celestial Venerable Mu has imparted Celestial Venerable Yu's method to become a god and the races rising to power would only be a matter of time. Both of us have discussed this, and we feel that there are many dangers lying ahead of us. Thus, we can't be scattered anymore, we need to form an alliance for the human race, to plan for the future of the other races!"

Celestial Venerable Ling's heart stirred slightly. "Heaven Alliance?"

Both of them were astonished, and they hurriedly asked, "Celestial Venerable Ling, you also have this plan? Do you also plan to establish an alliance? Heaven Alliance, did you come up with this name?"

Celestial Venerable Ling shook his head. "Celestial Venerable Mu came up with this name and Celestial Venerable Qin is also in the Heaven Alliance. I'm planning to find Celestial Venerable You and Celestial Venerable Huo this time and pull them into the Heaven Alliance."

Celestial Venerable Yun hurriedly said, "Celestial Venerable You is still okay, but Celestial Venerable Huo has a bad temper, and his mouth has no zipper. Furthermore, he is also close to Celestial Venerable Hao, so he's not suitable to join the Heaven Alliance."

"Where's Celestial Venerable Qin and Celestial Venerable Mu?" Celestial Venerable Yue asked.

Celestial Venerable Ling revealed a smile, and she said leisurely, "They are waiting for us in the future, waiting for the day we will reunite. Let's go find Celestial Venerable You."

The three of them walked towards the Jade Pool Small Construction, and Celestial Venerable Yun pondered for a moment before saying, "We need to have rules and regulations, Heaven Alliance must think about the safety of the races and only let people with outstanding aptitudes join us. We also need to test their character and prevent trouble from within."

Celestial Venerable Yue said, "The rules and regulations must be set, we can't be too good to bad guys, and we can't be too bad to good guys. We can only be better to good guys and worse to bad guys. Only then can Heaven Alliance last long."

Celestial Venerable Ling said, "What is the goal of Heaven Alliance, we need to establish that as well. Let us first find Celestial Venerable You. This era, the golden age, there are already signs of chaos, we need to be ready!"


When the darkness shrouded them, what Founding Emperor saw was different from what Celestial Venerable Ling and South Deity Zhu Que saw.

He could still see himself standing in his original spot. What was changing was the substances around him. Celestial Venerable Ling and South Deity Zhu Que scattered like black sand in the wind. The vast and majestic Celestial Heavens were also scattering like a sand painting.

The substance retreated, and it wasn't time that was moving forward.

'Celestial Venerable Ling was right.'

Sunlight scattered down, and all the darkness vanished. Where he was standing was no longer the celestial heavens of the ancient times. Instead, it was a piece of desolate desert, and the Surging River was flowing not far away.

This place was the Great Ruins, the ruins of the High Emperor Era. The Great Ruins was filled with strange incidents, and the people that were lucky enough to survive the High Emperor Era lived in the Great Ruins. There were also some people that lived in the outside world, surviving with difficulty.

Founding Emperor looked at this sight with a dazed look, and he walked towards the Surging River. He thought to himself, 'Celestial Venerable Mu, we will meet again, right? That's right, I want to make a divine sword like that...'

Far away, numerous divine arts practitioners were searching the shores of the Surging River, and when someone saw Founding Emperor from far away, he cried out in delight, "Qin Ye is over there!"

Everyone hurriedly came to welcome him and in the front was an old bull. He was covered in green scales and on the bull's back was a young farmer. He was strong and robust, but he wasn't tall.

Behind him was a girl with a folded fan and also a fisherman with two small red kuns in the basket behind him, popping their heads out. All the way at the back was a woodcutter.

They ran towards Founding Emperor, and the young woodcutter was running the slowest. He panted heavily, "Wait for me, guys, wait for me—"

"Qin Ye, where have you been? You sure made us spend quite a great deal of effort to find you!"

The farmer jumped down from the old bull's back and gave him a punch. Founding Emperor stumbled from the punch and cried out in pain. The farmer hurriedly said, "Stop acting, we have fought many times in the past, and it was only you who beat me up until I cry in pain. You have vanished for many days and Fisherman tracked you here. Afterward, he couldn't find any more clues."

Founding Emperor revealed a smile and said, "I mistakenly entered an inconceivable place and encountered numerous inconceivable things."

Everyone circled around him and asked curiously, "What exactly is it?"

Founding Emperor spaced out and suddenly shook his head. "I better not say."

The old bull beside the farmer spoke. "Benefactor, now you aren't being straightforward. What can you not tell us?"

Founding Emperor heard this voice, and his mind was suddenly blown. He only came back to his senses after a while and had a ridiculous feeling when he looked at the old bull. He was even more determined not to reveal what he had encountered.

Time slipped away.

More and more people followed Founding Emperor, and many people became renowned in the world like Di Yiyue, Tian Shu, Sakra, and they all followed him.

On this day, Founding Emperor Empire was established, and it was built on the ruins of the High Emperor Era. They formed a god dynasty and was crowned as Founding Emperor.

After the ascension ceremony, Founding Emperor was also a little tired. He got everyone to fall back while he came to the imperial study to read through his memorials.

Right at this moment, the door to the imperial study opened up, and a woman in green walked in.

Founding Emperor raised his head, and his body trembled violently when he saw this woman in green.

"Celestial Venerable Qin."

That woman revealed a smile. "Long time no see. I've waited for you, I've waited so painstakingly."

Founding Emperor got up, and tears flowed out from his eyes.

"Celestial Venerable Ling!"

"Celestial Venerable Qin, Founding Elder of the Heaven Alliance, welcome back to the Heaven Alliance!"


What Qin Mu and the old bull saw was quite similar to Founding Emperor. Qin Mu saw the substances flowing away like black sand for the second time, but it was still the first time for Niu Sanduo so he couldn't help clicking his tongue in wonder.

The darkness faded, and Qin Mu examined the surroundings. He saw that they were still in the west of Supreme Emperor Heaven, and the broken cliff was about a hundred miles in front of them.

'The ancient gods' celestial heavens from back then has already ceased to exist, and only the Great Ruins is left. The ancient gods' celestial heavens should be buried deep underground in the Great Ruins, right?'

He looked at the land under his feet, and his heart was feeling depressed as he recalled the past.

From the ancient gods' celestial heavens in the ancient times, from Dragon Han Era to now, exactly how many years have passed?

In this long and drawn out history, how many talents with outstanding aptitudes were buried here?

They were like the stars in the sky in history, twinkling in the darkness and fading away like the substances flowing.


Carefree Sword floated around Qin Mu and danced up and down. This sword had also returned to the present with him, and it was currently singing happily. It was as if it had woken up from the dead and revived.

Carefree Sword didn't follow Founding Emperor.

It belonged to Qin Mu's era, so it wouldn't leave with Founding Emperor.

Qin Mu caressed the sword gently, and Carefree Sword slowly moved under his fingertips. He could fill the energy hidden in the spirit of the sword.

This sword of Founding Emperor came alive.

"Senior Brother Sanduo, let us go."

Qin Mu raised his hand, and Carefree Sword gave a light sword cry which complemented his sword pellet.

Qin Mu looked into the distance and called Niu Sanduo who was still in a daze. He said with a smile, "Let us go Fengdu, Sister Di Yiyue and Heavenly King Tian Shu should have already gone there and reconstructed Fengdu. I might even enter Youdu from Fengdu and meet that old friend with a devil face on the back of his head."

The old bull came back to his senses and said in a daze, "This period of time was like a dream. I really don't know if what I encountered was an illusion or if I've really returned to the past. Junior brother, after we left, what do you think happened in Dragon Han? Did Celestial Venerable Ling establish the third pole, the third celestial heavens? The three heavens of Dragon Han, who won?"

"I don't know. I would like to know as well, what exactly happened after we left."

Qin Mu moved forward with him and said, "However, traveling back in time isn't something we can control. I feel that we are closer to unveiling the truth and unveiling this part of history. Senior brother, you can return your yellow joss paper to me now."

The old bull hurriedly took down the yellow joss paper and returned the yellow joss paper to him. He had a weird expression as he said, "I've beaten up Founding Emperor, wreaked havoc in the celestial heavens, beaten the woman of Celestial Emperor, beat up all kinds of ancient gods, and even an inescapable net couldn't capture me! I even met South Deity Zhu Que before and met the most ancient celestial venerables of the human race. Old master won't even believe me if I tell him! Hehe, I can totally scare old master to death... Eh, my Golden Commander's Seal is still here!"

He took down the commander's seal on his waist and shone it in the sunlight. He examined it closely and said with a smile, "Never did I expect that I, Niu Sanduo, would take up an official position in the ancient gods' celestial heavens! Since this commander's seal is still around, this means that this isn't a dream, it truly happened! When old master sees this commander's seal, he will definitely pee in his pants!"

Qin Mu looked at that commander's seal under the sunlight, and his expression changed slightly. He took out that incomparably ancient commander's seal from Founding Master Wei Suifeng. When two commander's seals were under the sunlight, one looked very new, and one looked very old.

When lighted flowed through that new commander's seal, it actually managed to activate that old commander's seal as well. Numerous ancient writings and runes gradually appeared!
