Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 960 - Celestial Venerable Yun

Shu Jun raised his eyelids one after another. He was puzzled over Qin Mu's rare modesty. He said calmly, "If you create a new path, one that is totally different from the celestial palace, this means that you have completely forsaken the divine arts practitioners' million years of wisdom, abandoning the experience accumulated by others. The countless techniques and divine arts over the last million years will be useless to you. You will establish a completely new civilization through your own strength."

This was precisely the idea in Qin Mu's head.

In his view, although the celestial palace system hadn't yet evolved to a perfect celestial heaven, there was nothing stopping it from changing.

He really wanted to abandon the cultivation system of the celestial palace and create a new cultivation system.

"However, have you thought of how much time you would need?"

Shu Jun said, "You may need a million years to perfect the new path you created, so as to let this cultivation system reach a matured stage. Also, you are doing this alone, so a million years is a conservative estimate. However, if you accept the celestial palace system, maybe you would only need a few thousand years or even a few hundred years to reach the pinnacle, becoming the strongest existence under the sky. I'm speaking from experience. It's up to you how you want to walk this path."

Qin Mu fell into silence as he bowed towards Shu Jun, who was on the sacrificial altar, expressing his thanks. He then turned into a wisp of consciousness that dissipated.

Shu Jun was perplexed. 'Why is this little fellow so respectful towards me?'

On the Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar, Qin Mu raised his head to take a look. The Grand Emperor's seal hung in the air above the altar, borrowing the Grand Emperor's power to resist the growing strength of the supreme consciousness realm.

Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang turned their heads. The rotational speed of the ring of stars on the cliff seemed to be back to normal and hadn't speed up. They heaved sighs of relief.

The sacrificial altar flew in the air, moving towards the Grand Emperor's corporeal body, closing in on the heart of his brows and Celestial Venerable Huo.

Except, Qin Mu had been looking at the Grand Emperor's seal, seemingly in a daze. Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang were both puzzled but didn't say anything.

Suddenly, two streams of tears rolled down the corners of Qin Mu's eyes. Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang got a fright. They had no idea why this Celestial Venerable Mu became so melancholy and moody all of a sudden.

Qin Mu retracted his gaze. There was a sense of sadness gushing into his heart, making him unable to stop himself from tearing up.

He had decided not to explore the path that wasn't trodden before, not to find out where it would lead to and discover the wonders at the end of it.

In the past, he could faintly see that this path contained limitless beauty. Now, he could only abandon it.

He planned to reopen the celestial palace, relying on the wisdom of a million years to continue down the path of the realms of Honored God, True God, Jade Pavilion, Jade Capital, and the rest.

Or perhaps he could wait a million years to perfect his path and become an eternal legend, surpassing the Celestial Heavens Realm.

But Eternal Peace, the reform, his friends, and people with the same ideals couldn't afford to wait.

He may miss out on the countless beautiful scenery of the other path and have no chance of seeing the end of the Great Dao and its new beginning, but he could seize the present and cherish what he had in front of him.

When he let all of this go, the seed in his heart also gradually disappeared, transforming into a wisp of melancholy that lingered on.

This melancholy wasn't sorrow from his heart, it was sorrow that traveled from the end of the Great Dao.

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar quietly floated past Celestial Venerable Huo as it moved towards the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows.

Luo Wushuang turned and looked at Celestial Venerable Huo, whom they left behind. He couldn't help but say, "Overlord Body Qin, you are avoiding Celestial Venerable Huo. Shouldn't we rescue him first?"

Yue Tingge also noticed this. Qin Mu was clearly planning to skirt around Celestial Venerable Huo, who was struggling to move forward, therefore reaching the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows before him.

Qin Mu laughed. "Don't worry, Celestial Venerable Huo will survive. Am I right, Celestial Venerable Huo?"

Celestial Venerable Huo paid no attention to their words. He remained frozen in place, the runes of Great Dao around his body still slowly changing.

"He has no opinions," Qin Mu said.

The corners of Luo Wushuang's eyes twitched twice as he turned his head to look at Celestial Venerable Huo.

Qin Mu consoled him by saying, "Don't worry. It may be very difficult for Celestial Venerable Huo to come here, but going out is easy. All he needs to do is turn around. In a few hundred years' time, he'll be out of here."

Luo Wushuang was speechless with anger. "Celestial Venerable Mu, could it be that you are worried that after you save Celestial Venerable Huo, he will repay your kindness with enmity and kill you?"

Qin Mu plainly said, "I'm not sure whether he will kill me or not. However, he will definitely kill Heavenly Master Yue, Yue Tingge. Heavenly Master Yue, am I correct?"

Yue Tingge sighed, looking dispirited. "I tricked him and Celestial Venerable Xu here, causing him to be trapped in the supreme consciousness realm for so long. Most likely, he will kill me."

The sacrificial altar flew wobbly into the heart of the Grand Emperor's brows. There was no Grand Primordium Origin Stone in the heart of his brows, only a hexagon-shaped wound.

It was an extremely huge and vast place. Dazzling brilliance surged forth from the depths of the Grand Emperor's head, looking like a myriad of clouds tinged with sunset hues.

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar flew among the abundant multicolored rays. The seal was continuously absorbing the rays as they surged forward. They could vaguely see a figure sitting within the overlapping multicolored rays.

Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang had doubts in their hearts as they looked at Qin Mu.

Qin Mu suppressed the agitation in his heart and took a deep breath. He said solemnly, "Heavenly Master Yue, Divine Knife Luo, are you able to move the corporeal body of a Celestial Venerable?"

Their hearts trembled violently as they stared at the unmoving figure within the light rays with disbelief.

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar finally came to the side of that figure. Luo Wushuang examined the man. He had a graceful bearing with an extraordinary air around him, looking like a middle-aged emperor but being extremely handsome. However, Luo Wushuang couldn't recognize him. He thought to himself, 'Which High Emperor is this? But from Overlord Body Qin's words, he should be a Celestial Venerable. Exactly which Celestial Venerable died here?'

Yue Tingge's heart shook violently as he whispered, "He is Celestial Venerable Yun…"

Luo Wushuang's mind was blown after he heard those words. He cried, "He is the founder of the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure, Celestial Venerable Yun?"

Qin Mu hurried them. "Gentlemen, I'm unable to move him with my magic power. It's better for you to do it."

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar floated in front of Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body. Qin Mu said softly, "Dao friend Yun, time to go home."

Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang suppressed the trembling in their hearts and moved forward to execute their magic powers. They raised Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body, sending it onto the altar.

Qin Mu inspected Celestial Venerable Yun's injuries. The strange thing was that Celestial Venerable Yun had no injuries on his body. However, his soul had disappeared without a trace.

'Celestial Venerable Yue said that Celestial Venerable Yun is already dead. In that case, it's really true. The good thing is, even if he's dead, I can bring him back to life!'

Qin Mu examined carefully and didn't find any of the Grand Emperor's consciousness. He thought for a while and made his decision. "Gentlemen, please send him into the heart of my brows. There is a piece of Youdu hidden within it. We shall hide his body there first."

Yue Tingge and Luo Wushuang had plenty of doubts in their hearts, but they still complied with sending Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body into the heart of Qin Mu's brows, into the Qin word land.

Qin Mu let out a long sigh of relief and mobilized the Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar for the return journey.

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar went past Celestial Venerable Huo again. Luo Wushuang couldn't help but glance at Qin Mu, leaving Qin Mu no choice but to stop the altar. He said, "Why don't both of you turn him around?"

Luo Wushuang smiled coldly. "What good does that do? He'll still be trapped in the supreme consciousness realm."

Qin Mu said, "If he has to turn by himself, he would need another two hundred years' time. If we help him, we could save him two hundred years."

Luo Wushuang frowned. Before he could say anything, Qin Mu interrupted, saying, "Divine Knife Luo, can you guarantee that Celestial Venerable Huo won't kill Heavenly Master Yue and me after he's free?"

Luo Wushuang didn't answer as he and Yue Tingge turned Celestial Venerable Huo around.

The Grand Emperor's sacrificial altar continued to fly towards the outside. After a long time, the altar flew over the abyss of the void, arriving under the ring of stars. The three men and the dragon got off of the altar. After, Qin Mu put the altar away, only retaining the Grand Emperor's seal. He then looked doubtfully at the divine dragon.

The divine dragon was quiet during the journey, quite unlike how it used to chatter non-stop.

Suddenly, Yue Tingge's voice trembled. "Celestial Venerable Huo made a step!"

Qin Mu got a fright and hurriedly glanced over. Indeed, Celestial Venerable Huo had made a step in their direction!


His scalp went numb. He quickly charged towards the outside of the supreme consciousness realm as Luo Wushuang, Yue Tingge, and the divine dragon frantically followed him.

The closer one was to the core of the supreme consciousness realm, the greater the suppression. But Celestial Venerable Huo only needed to make the first step, the speed of his next step would then be much quicker because he was walking out!

For every step he took, the suppression would weaken slightly!

Given his abilities, he would break free within a short span of time!

Qin Mu's scalp went numb as he dashed forward with all his might, trying to leave this place before that happened!

Right at this moment, he heard footsteps.

It sounded as though mountains were shattering as the ground split, shaking the sky and earth, causing the void to crumble.

Qin Mu turned back and saw flames shooting up into the sky within the supreme consciousness realm.

Suddenly, the sound of footsteps could be heard again. This time around, it was louder and clearer. The flames rose higher, burning the entire sky!

"I'm done for, Celestial Venerable Huo is free!"

Qin Mu gritted his teeth as he dashed forward wildly. Yue Tingge overtook him with a swoosh, running off by himself as he shouted, "I don't want to die together with you. I'll make a move first! Celestial Venerable Mu, you'll help me hold up Celestial Venerable Huo. I'll burn some joss papers for you next year!"

"Burn your ass!"

Qin Mu was incensed. He saw Yue Tingge transforming into a pile of cubes, tumbling forward rapidly and disappearing without a trace.

Qin Mu charged forward with all his strength, but Luo Wushuang was faster and was ahead of him. Apparently, he had recovered well over the last few days and could utilize the magic power of either the Jade Pool or Jade Capital Realm.

"Luo Wushuang, you were chatting incessantly about rescuing Celestial Venerable Huo, so why are you running away?" Qin Mu asked angrily.

Luo Wushuang hesitated a while and slowed down his footsteps. He felt terribly ashamed as he said, "I was thinking, given your reputation, if Celestial Venerable Huo kills you, he will silence me as well, so as to prevent him from carrying the infamy of killing a Celestial Venerable. I forgot the meaning of loyalty…"

At this moment, that divine dragon unexpectedly overtook him. It shook its head and swayed its tail, gliding along with the wind at a speed much greater than Qin Mu.

Qin Mu was feeling doubtful. 'This divine dragon was created by my visualization, so its abilities shouldn't surpass me… Oh no, it's the Grand Emperor! He has borrowed and occupied the body of this divine dragon that I created!'

Just as he made this realization, intense light from the flames suddenly shone on his back, heating him until his body became hot, as though it was going to burst into flames.

Qin Mu froze, stopping his footsteps. He turned around and gave a forced smile. "Celestial Venerable Huo, it has been a long time."

Luo Wushuang had no choice but to stop as well. He turned around, his knife qi surging, waiting in anticipation.

Celestial Venerable Huo flew up with a swoosh and leaped over them. He landed in front of that divine dragon and grabbed it with his hands.

The divine dragon struggled but failed to break free. It opened its mouth and laughed coldly. "Celestial Venerable Huo, are you thinking of killing me? You are unable to. My consciousness is all over the supreme consciousness realm. I'm immortal…"

With a whoosh, it burst into flames and was reduced to ashes in an instant.

Qin Mu froze as Celestial Venerable Huo looked at him.

"Celestial Venerable Mu, we meet again."

Celestial Venerable Huo was expressionless. Behind him, a ring of flames that looked like it was capable of burning everything rotated slowly. On the ring, tiny flames danced and leaped, periodically glowing and giving off extremely bright brilliance. It looked as though there were many suns within the fire that exploded out. When he saw Qin Mu, he was clearly agitated.

"Every time I see you, I recall how you walloped me at the Jade Pool," Celestial Venerable Huo said.

Qin Mu replied with a serious expression, "As the saying goes—from an exchange of blows, friendship grows. A lot of sworn friends for life or death were forged through the exchanges of blows."

"It's better that Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body is in your hands instead of mine. Thank you." Celestial Venerable Huo turned and left after saying this, his figure moving off into the distance.

Qin Mu was stunned. He shouted, "What are you thanking me for?"

"Thank you for reviving Celestial Venerable Yu."

Celestial Venerable Huo's voice came traveling back from afar. "That year at the Jade Pool, I said that if you could find out who killed Celestial Venerable Yu, I would let go of my hatred for you. Not only were you able to achieve that, you even brought him back to life."

Qin Mu waved his hand high up in the air. "Celestial Venerable Huo, let's have a chat before you go!"

Celestial Venerable Huo's voice was getting further away. "Whenever I see you, I'm disgusted and feel like beating you to death. You have to be wary of Celestial Venerable Xu. She is a dangerous person…"

Luo Wushuang's expression changed drastically as his heart throbbed wildly. 'I seem to have heard things I shouldn't be hearing. I have no choice but to revolt now…'
