Qin Mu's heart trembled as he looked forward and saw giant masters of creation in white robes appear in a vast piece of space, one after another.
A giant lotus-shaped land laid there. It was extremely vast and was separated from Qin Mu and the others by an abyss of unknown depth. Within the abyss was a void that made one unable to see its bottom.
A lot of masters of creation floated in the void. Beneath them, giant lotuses blossomed out to radiate light on the white robes that looked impeccably pure.
Some of them, due to their consciousness' visualization, had golden wings that made them look like bird-headed humanoids with sharp bird claws for feet.
Some were stepping on two dragons that had fire flowing out of them.
Some had a long river around their bodies, like snakes but with more changes.
Some had a chain drilling out of the heart of their brows, spiraling in the air.
Some had a galaxy flooding out of the heart of their brows, with stars flowing forth.
Yet, everything was still. All of the masters of creation were frozen in the position they last had while alive.
They were in an offensive position with a Grand Primordium Divine Stone in the heart of their brows as they visualized their strongest attack. Their target was an incomparably large and terrifying master of creation, the Grand Emperor that Shu Jun was talking about!
If these masters of creation were as large as stars, then the Grand Emperor was like the brightest sun who had thousands of stars orbiting him.
The Grand Emperor was in stasis too.
He stood on the lotus-shaped land, both of his legs creating a thick root that fixed him to that landmass. The roots on both of his legs were like his tendons that broke out of his legs, connecting him to the ground.
The crevasses on his robes were like the mountain ranges on that lotus-shaped landmass, while the blood that flowed out of the wounds on his legs formed long rivers that were crimson red.
Obviously, Grand Emperor Ju Yushi didn't fuse together with the lotus landmass willingly. Instead, he was trapped by the divine arts of these masters of creation, which fused him with it, preventing him from escaping.
Unless, of course, he could bring the vast lotus landmass with him when he flew.
This was a trap aimed against Grand Emperor Ju Yushi!
'It was the divine arts of the masters of creation and the Grand Emperor that created the peculiarities of this land!'
Qin Mu's heart jumped. The Great Void's masters of creation must have tricked Grand Emperor Ju Yushi here to trap him before fighting to the very end with him!
However, he had some doubts. After all, according to Shu Jun, Grand Emperor Ju Yushi was unbelievably strong. He was the first strong practitioner of the primordial era. Although there were many large masters of creation here, it was unlikely that they had what it took to deal with Grand Emperor Ju Yushi.
He immediately noticed that in the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows, there was no Grand Primordium Origin Stone that signified his authority and status!
It was empty, without a third eye. It only had a hexagon-shaped wound on it!
Qin Mu immediately thought about the Grand Primordium Origin Stone in his third eye and shuddered. That Grand Primordium Origin Stone was a fragment of the original Origin Stone in the heart of his brows. Obviously, in the battle of the Blood Rust Zone, someone broke the Grand Primordium Origin Stone.
Shu Jun was there too, and he had used his consciousness to hide in one of the fragments, which was later found by Wei Suifeng. Wei Suifeng didn't discover the hiding Shu Jun and had given the stone to Qin Mu.
'The Grand Emperor's power must have been lacking without the Grand Primordium Origin Stone, which caused him to be stuck. However, this doesn't really hold up since, without it, he was still extremely powerful. Shu Jun said that he had the strongest corporeal body in all of history. Just by using this corporeal body, he could defeat the masters of creation.'
Qin Mu thought, 'In that sense, someone must have helped these masters of creation against Grand Emperor Ju Yushi! Who was it then? What was their purpose?'
He was perplexed as he thought, 'Shu Jun must know the secrets of the primordial era and the battle of the Blood Rust Zone. He knows why the Grand Primordium Origin Stone broke, but he seems unwilling to bring it up.'
Shu Jun was in a daze. The Grand Emperor died here with these masters of creation. It looked like the Great Void's masters of creation surrounded him and exhausted him to death.
It was due to how unimaginably weird the divine arts of these masters of creation were that so many peculiarities occurred when Qin Mu and the others arrived here.
However, the unsolved mystery as to why Grand Emperor Ju Yushi fought the masters of creation here perplexed them.
"Here it is."
The small light spot that Yue Tingge morphed into laughed. "I lured Celestial Venerable Xu and Celestial Venerable Huo here and killed them… Hehe…"
"How could Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Xu have died here?"
Qin Mu suddenly couldn't help but laugh as he sized up the surrounding area. However, his heart suddenly shuddered. He really saw Celestial Venerable Huo!
Celestial Venerable Huo was at that peculiar battlefield in front, not far from the heart of Grand Emperor Ju Yushi's brows. He couldn't have mistaken him for someone else.
He and Celestial Venerable Huo were old friends. He always wore a shirt filled with flame markings on it. Most importantly, he had an extremely obvious ring of fire behind his head!
At that moment, Celestial Venerable Huo was like Grand Emperor Ju Yushi, stuck in that peculiar space, unable to move. It was as if he was dead.
After all, he was an extremely strong Celestial Venerable and hadn't been shaped into a light spot, so his body kept its walking posture.
'Would a Celestial Venerable in the Celestial Heavens Realm be killed by this place?'
Qin Mu's heart trembled before settling down to look for Celestial Venerable Xu. However, he failed to find her.
He was slightly stunned. Just now, Yue Tingge said that he lured the two Celestial Venerables there to die. That being the case, why did he only see Celestial Venerable Huo and not Celestial Venerable Xu?
At that moment, he noticed a strange thing. Celestial Venerable Huo was moving!
It was just that Celestial Venerable Huo was moving too slowly for Qin Mu and the others to notice, to the point that their hair stood up.
Yue Tingge and the others had already been peculiarly morphed into small light spots, yet Qin Mu's third eye hadn't. It had an extremely strong observational power, such that he could observe the most minute of changes!
He noticed that the flame markings around Celestial Venerable Huo contained fire runes within them that were being replaced extremely slowly.
This meant that Celestial Venerable Huo was changing his protective rune!
In that case, Celestial Venerable Huo didn't die here.
Qin Mu calculated, and according to the rate by which he was replacing his runes, it would take him at least 256 years to complete one divine art move!
'Celestial Venerable Huo is flying towards the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows. Could there be something there that's attracting him?'
Qin Mu thought about that and instantly gathered his consciousness and utilized his Grand Primordium Origin Stone. He moved all of his vital qi and consciousness to shape the Three Enclosures Higher Knowledge.
His third eye grew brighter and brighter, observing nearly everything clearly, including all of the flame runes on Celestial Venerable Huo!
He looked into the hole in the heart of Grand Emperor Ju Yushi's brows. There was no Grand Primordium Origin Stone. Instead, there was a hexagon-shaped wound that spewed out blazing flames.
The flames were extremely dense, and one could see an indistinct figure sitting inside!
Qin Mu's heart shook, and suddenly, vital qi picked up the light spot that Shu Jun had morphed into. Shu Jun was shocked, and in the next moment, he was forced into the third eye, back onto the sacrificial altar in the Grand Primordium Origin Stone.
"Shu Jun, lend me all of your consciousness so I can see who's inside the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows!"
Qin Mu's voice came, and Shu Jun shuddered. He cried out in astonishment, "There's someone in the heart of his brows?"
He immediately transferred his consciousness, lending it to Qin Mu. Qin Mu's consciousness rose dramatically, and the power of his third eye rose again. His eye's power became a light beam that was ten thousand miles long, which shone on the heart of Grand Emperor Ju Yushi's brows.
That light went through layer after layer of blazing flames before gradually arriving in front of that figure.
"Shu Jun, lend me more consciousness!" Qin Mu felt fatigued and hollered hurriedly.
Shu Jun hesitated. The consciousness he lent to Qin Mu just now was only part of his power. After all, he didn't fully trust Qin Mu.
"Lend it to me now, and I'll help you recover an ear!" Qin Mu said.
Shu Jun gave a cold humph and said, "I want two ears!"
"Ok!" Qin Mu immediately agreed to it.
Shu Jun saw how fast he agreed to it and felt regretful. 'If I had asked for a tongue, this fellow probably would have agreed to it…'
Although he thought that, he gathered his remaining consciousness and lent it to Qin Mu.
The light in Qin Mu's third eye grew ever more intense and broke the final flame, shining on the person sitting in the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows.
Suddenly, Qin Mu's heart shuddered. The light was instantly dispersed, and he retracted it instinctively.
The rolling consciousness and vital qi currents rushed to his brain and knocked him muddle-headed. His essence and blood floated in stillness.
Shu Jun immediately recalled his consciousness. "Brat, remember your promise of two ears. Don't break it! By the way, what did you see?"
Qin Mu calmed himself down and mumbled, "Celestial Venerable Yun… I saw Celestial Venerable Yun!"
Shu Jun didn't know who Celestial Venerable Yun was, yet the sight of him stirred huge waves in Qin Mu's heart. The still figure he saw in the heart of Grand Emperor Ju Yushi's brows was Celestial Venerable Yun. He couldn't have been mistaken!
He met Celestial Venerable Yun at the Jade Pool Meeting. He was an extremely handsome and talented youth. Although the man that sat in the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows was a middle-aged man whose face gave off a royal quality and solemnity, one could still see the charm the person had when he was young!
That was no doubt Celestial Venerable Yun!
His heart was still confused. 'Why would Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body be there? Oh yeah, Celestial Venerable Yun left behind a sacrificial altar with the Grand Emperor's imperial seal on it, which belonged to Grand Emperor Ju Yushi!'
He retrieved the seal, and it flew out of his third eye. The seal immediately established a connection with the power of this place after being retrieved, and terrifying power burst forth from it!
Thousands of divine lights spewed forth on the lotus landmass and flooded towards the imperial seal. The warped energy shook the space around it and allowed him to come out of being a light spot!
He and the others recovered their corporeal bodies quickly as they looked at that floating seal suspiciously.
