Qin Mu's body froze. The celestial emperor of the extraterritorial celestial heavens was the Heaven Alliance?
Did the blind elder mean that someone in the Heaven Alliance was the celestial emperor, or was it the entire Heaven Alliance?
He had never thought of this problem before.
Could there be a possibility that the celestial emperor of the extraterritorial celestial heavens wasn't a person but a group of people, and in this group of people, there were all kinds of disputes regarding interests?
If this guess was established, he would be able to draw the outline of the High Emperor Era.
The High Emperor Era was caused by Mother Earth.
Mother Earth had groomed her own children and supported them to create the High Emperor Era and establish the High Emperor Celestial Heavens, making them be known as North High Emperor.
On the other side, the Heaven Alliance supported another group of people to create South High Emperor and establish the South High Emperor Celestial Heavens, which went against North High Emperor.
The fights between the two celestial heavens lasted for three hundred thousand years.
At that time, the extraterritorial celestial heavens was just a bystander, sitting on the mountain and watching the tigers fight.
At that time, the extraterritorial celestial heavens was still the Dragon Han Celestial Heavens.
After the Dragon Han Celestial Heavens annexed the Heaven Han Celestial Heavens and the Dragon Heaven Celestial Heavens, it had become an oversized monster, and the ancient gods in this celestial heavens also had gods that were cultivated from half-gods and lifeforms after the beginning.
Meanwhile, the Heaven Alliance became stronger and stronger, and they used various methods to gradually replace the pillars of the extraterritorial celestial heavens, taking the extraterritorial celestial heavens into their control.
The ancient gods all felt themselves to be in danger. Heaven Duke, Earth Count, they felt their own benefits at stake, and they were also in danger of being replaced.
The internal structure of the Heaven Alliance also started to crack due to the appearance of power and benefits.
The Heaven Alliance that had controlled the extraterritorial celestial heavens also ended up having conflicting views that couldn't be mediated. The ideals of South High Emperor were that human lives were greater than heaven, that gods had to serve the people as well.
On the other hand, after the Heaven Alliance in the extraterritorial celestial heavens gained control of incomparable power and authority, the South High Emperor Celestial Heavens had become a thorn in their eyes, becoming a colossus that had threatened their rule.
The conflicting views erupted right after Mother Earth was wiped out by the Heaven Alliance. With Mother Earth's death, the North High Emperor Celestial Heavens was erased, and eradicating South High Emperor became the number one mission for the Heaven Alliance.
The battle had erupted right when Celestial Venerable Ling was intercepting the Celestial River to test out her divine art, which was at the most perfect state. If Celestial Venerable Ling didn't die, the South High Emperor Celestial Heavens wouldn't be defeated.
That terrifying existence fought his way into the fog and assassinated Celestial Venerable Ling. At the same time, the gods of the extraterritorial celestial heavens attacked the South High Emperor Celestial Heavens, which resulted in the complete annihilation of the High Emperor Celestial Heavens.
This was Qin Mu's guess.
Even though there were still many questions left unanswered, he felt that this guess was more or less close to the truth.
He followed the blind elder to the side of the Celestial River again, and the blind elder continued to store the "corpse" of Celestial Venerable Ling that came floating down the river. The exact same situation happened, and the "corpse" of Celestial Venerable Ling turned into clear water again.
Qin Mu couldn't resist saying, "Elder, Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art allows substances to not change, not increasing and not decreasing. Even if she's dead, her corpse will vanish and transform into her again, coming back to life. That is because her divine art is none other than unchanging substances. You will never collect her body, it will merely be the water in the river. The true her has already transformed into that lump of eternal substance on the Celestial River. She has already become the fog on the river. She doesn't care what you are doing! She doesn't care that you are erecting a tombstone or creating a tomb for her!"
If one was to choose someone that understood Celestial Venerable Ling, that person would definitely be Qin Mu.
He understood Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art the most, and it was also him and Founding Emperor that had imparted the art of creation which hadn't taken shape to Celestial Venerable Ling. Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art was still at the fledgling stage, and it was also completed under Qin Mu and Founding Emperor's guidance.
After Qin Mu entered the ghost ship, it was also Qin Mu that had borrowed the power of the four deities to break apart Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art. However, Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art back then was still not perfect.
However, in regards to understanding Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art, he was indeed the number one person.
In his eyes, the blind elder guarding by the riverside and collecting Celestial Venerable Ling's body was something that was completely unnecessary. That was because Celestial Venerable Ling had already fused with her divine art, and it could completely be said that Celestial Venerable Ling had already become her divine art.
She would live eternally in her divine art, dying and reviving, reviving and dying, over and over again.
Qin Mu even guessed that the fog he had met at the source of Surging River was Celestial Venerable Ling's divine art. It was Celestial Venerable Ling that had brought him back to ancient times and brought him to the end of the High Emperor Era.
However, Qin Mu just didn't know at that time.
The blind elder finished using all of the stone coffins and began dragging the coffins back to bury. He said with a muffled voice, "No one cares about her, even she doesn't care about herself. Teacher only lives for the Dao, she is a pure person, she is so innocent that her heart only has the Dao! She doesn't have all those thoughts you guys have, she isn't crafty and scheming, she doesn't care about power and authority, she was no threat to everyone, so why did she have to die? Why couldn't she be left alive?"
This blind elder was furious, and he raised his head to howl like an injured beast.
"Why did such a pure person have to die? Why could both of you, the two Celestial Venerables, not take the initiative to carry the responsibility? Why did you have to return back to the day you met her and throw the heavy responsibility onto her?"
His hair rose up from his anger, and he roared sternly, "Couldn't both of you have carried the responsibility? Why did you have to leave? Couldn't you have walked down the path with her? Why did you let her face the dangers alone?"
"She doesn't understand, Celestial Venerable Mu! She really doesn't understand—"
Two streaks of bloody tears rolled down his old face as he pulled the coffins forward. His voice gradually became softer and softer.
"Why do I have to bury her? Why do I have to guard here over and over again to bury her? Celestial Venerable Mu, do you not understand? That is because she's dead. In her divine art, she has died time and time again, do you not understand the pain of death?
"She has experienced countless deaths, so I have to bury her countless times. That is because every death is very painful, every death is real. She has to go through countless repetitions of such a death..."
Qin Mu was stunned, and he saw him off.
Yan'er flew down from his shoulder and transformed into a beautiful girl. She took out her silk handkerchief to wipe the tears off his face.
Qin Mu forced a smile and croaked, "I'm alright, thank you, Big Sister Yan'er."
Violent clashes came from the Jade Capital City, and Dragon King Tian suddenly laughed loudly. Disregarding everyone and rushing over, he jumped into the black coffin beside the dock with a loud bang and shouted, "Celestial Venerable Ling's treasures belongs to me now! There's hope for Mother Earth's resurrection now!"
This old dragon carried another coffin on his shoulder and happily sealed him and this coffin into the suspended coffin.
"Celestial Venerable Ling's treasures are right in this coffin..."
Dragon King Tian's laughter came from the inside of the coffin, and Qin Mu suddenly heard his laughter becoming miserable cries. The suspended coffin then vibrated violently, causing the surface of the Celestial River to sway uncertainly, raising huge waves!
Soon, fresh blood poured out from the suspended coffin, and the coffin gradually regained its calm.
The corners of Qin Mu's eyes twitched, and he looked at the suspended coffin floating above the river surface.
The Numinous Sky Hall of the Jade Capital City was in a mess, and it had already been razed to the ground. The half-gods that Dragon King Tian had brought along were completely dead, and the maids that Yan Qiling and Mu Qiubai had brought along were also severely injured by Dragon King Tian. They were all collapsed on the ground.
On the ruins of the Numinous Sky Hall, several figures hurriedly flew over only to see the surface of the Celestial River turning into a sea of blood. Red-colored blood gushed out of the suspended coffin and dyed the river surface red.
Everyone's hearts jumped, and suddenly, that suspended coffin opened up with a clack. There was a coffin inside the coffin, and the coffin that Dragon King Tian had carried into the suspended coffin suddenly stood upright inside.
This coffin was already opened, and it was pitch black inside. What was even scarier was that gnawing sounds came from inside as though something was gnawing on something!
Suddenly, blood burst out from this coffin like a flood, and the blood sprayed down in all directions.
The Celestial River that had already been dyed red became even redder.
A huge dragon head flew out from that upright coffin and smashed onto the river surface before slowly sinking down. That was Dragon King Tian's head.
On the shore of the river, the corners of Xing An's eyes twitched violently, and he lifted up his chest to slowly move backward.
'Celestial Venerable Yu', Yan Qiling, and Mu Qiubai also secretly moved back.
In that battle earlier, because their abilities were far inferior to Dragon King Tian and the rest, they were disregarded by Dragon King Tian and had survived instead.
However, the coffin that they were fighting for had instead given them a bone-chilling cold now.
Suddenly, claws that were covered in green hair stretched out of the coffin, and the claws under the green hair seemed to be cast in gold and copper. Everyone's faces changed drastically. At this very moment, a figure flew out from that coffin, and a tattered cape covered the entire sky above the Celestial River.
That was an incomparably strong emperor's corpse that had already cultivated into a corpse demon in the coffin. Its mouth was laden with razor-sharp teeth, and Dragon King Tian's flesh was still hanging out from the side of its mouth.
Overflowing corpse gas spread through this deathly silent celestial heavens. The corpse demon flew through the sky like light and lightning as he rushed straight at them.
Yan Qiling shrieked, and those several maids beside them instantly rushed into the sky to face that emperor's corpse.
These maids could clash head-on with Dragon King Tian, and even though they were severely injured, they had lived on. Their abilities were extremely brilliant, and yet they were caught by that emperor's corpse one after another to be stuffed into its mouth.
Everyone hurriedly scattered and escaped.
That corpse demon smiled oddly, and its scarlet red cape fluttered in the wind. It suddenly descended down from the sky, and its tattered cape covered a huge part of the palace. It grabbed a maid that was trying to escape.
Screams came from the place where the cape had covered, and then the screams died down.
The cape soared up once again and covered the sky. That corpse demon searched around in the sky for any breath of living humans.
The blind elder put down his hatchet and chisel before raising his head to shout loudly, "Senior Brother! You're already dead, return back to where you should be!"
The corpse demon reanimated from High Emperor Celestial Emperor heard him and immediately pounced at him. His arrogance was overflowing, and he was truly a High Emperor Celestial Emperor on Emperor's Throne Realm!
The blind elder raised his hatchet in one hand and the chisel in another. With a loud bang, the huge hatchet smacked itself on the chisel!
A beam of light burst out of the chisel and flashed forward to nail into the heart of that corpse demon's brows.
It was as if that corpse demon had suffered a heavy blow, and it flew back to land into the emperor's coffin on the surface of the Celestial River.
The coffin lid of the emperor's coffin closed.
The blind elder put away his hatchet and chisel. He started swinging a chain, which became longer and longer, sweeping up that emperor's coffin. The blind elder swung the emperor's coffin and gave it a jolt to send this coffin into the ruins of the Numinous Sky Hall.
When the emperor's coffin landed on the ground, countless bricks flew into the sky. The carved beams and painted rafters reconstructed themselves and transformed into a Numinous Sky Hall that stood tall in the Jade Capital City that was filled with stone coffins and stone tombstones.
Everyone who was currently escaping had just recovered from their shock, and they still felt a lingering fear.
Qin Mu looked at the blind elder and was extremely astonished. This blind elder was nothing special to look at, yet his cultivation was immeasurable. He wasn't inferior to an existence on the Emperor's Throne Realm!"
'Celestial Venerable Yu' walked towards the blind elder, and his gaze wavered. "You are... Celestial Venerable Ling's disciple, Yi Shisheng. You are still alive, you have been keeping guard here all this time?"
The blind elder ignored him and continued to raise his hatchet and chisel.
'Celestial Venerable Yu' smiled and said, "You have the abilities, so why do you have to hole yourself up in such a desolate place? Celestial Venerable Ling cut off a section of the Celestial River and used herself to replace that section, transforming herself into the substance of the Celestial River. Her divine art is truly exquisite, and even I am full of admiration. You are her disciple, so you have definitely learned some of her divine art. The celestial heavens is in need of talents like you."
The blind elder stopped his knocking and turned to "look" at him. He asked numbly, "Which senior uncle of mine are you? Since you know my teacher has become the substance of the Celestial River, why did you have to come?"
'Celestial Venerable Yu' said with a smile, "I'm just here to take a look at her, to see if she is really dead."
"Can you be at ease now?" asked the blind elder.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
'Celestial Venerable Yu' said, "Naturally."
The blind elder tightened his grip on his hatchet. He suddenly loosened his grip and said indifferently, "Senior uncle, go away, don't come and disturb our peace and quiet."
'Celestial Venerable Yu' laughed loudly.
The blind elder "looked" at Qin Mu and coldly said, "Celestial Venerable Mu, go away too. Bring all of them away. You guys aren't needed here!"
Qin Mu let out a shaky breath, and he said solemnly, "Don't worry, I will rescue Celestial Venerable Ling. I always keep my word!"
He turned around and walked towards the suspended coffin floating in the Celestial River. Behind him, knocking sounds rang out again, and he didn't know if the blind elder had heard him.
Qin Mu's body froze. The celestial emperor of the extraterritorial celestial heavens was the Heaven Alliance?
