Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 969 -
Qin Mu opened the door on the right for the second time. The scenery changed again. It was now pitch black, and he couldn't see anything.
Suddenly, the darkness cracked open, and a giant eye filled the whole room!
Qin Mu immediately shut the door as his heart jumped chaotically. 'Opening the rooms at the end of the Void Bridge really is exciting! Every time, I get scared when I open a door!'
He opened the door again, and within it was an erupting black hole. It made him shudder and close the door immediately.
Qin Mu tried it multiple times and finally found a room with a lotus.
Qin Fengqing listened to something again. He was clearly being guided as he said, "Now, twice left, right once, middle five times, right thrice, middle once, right twice, left four times, middle seven times…"
It was as if he was saying some peculiar password. Qin Mu listened to it carefully and memorized it. If this really was the order to open the door, then it was possible that no one had found Carefree Village yet!
Normal people would enter the door, not inspect it.
Entering the door would render them trapped in the masters of creation's trap like Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Xu. Even if they were able to escape, they wouldn't know the order of dealing with the doors, making them helpless.
More importantly, one needed to open and close the doors multiple times. This required constant experimentation. Additionally, when one opened a door, the place behind it was a dangerous place. The chamber of concubines of Celestial Emperor, in front of Earth Count or the Primordial Tree, and on top of various dangerous places. If one wasn't careful, they could be killed by what was behind the door!
Of course, when the masters of creation created this bizarre place and the three houses, Mother Earth was still alive. Now that she was dead, there were only some gods watching the door, so it wasn't as dangerous to open the door to the Primordial Tree in the Primordial Realm.
It was nearly impossible to crack the mystery behind the doors in a short time. The likelihood was that one would be eliminated by the horrible beings behind the doors for opening them too many times.
'These masters of creation are powerful. How did Founding Emperor figure out the order for opening the doors?'
Qin Mu thought about this for a moment and had a theory about it.
The map that Celestial Venerable Yun passed to Founding Emperor probably contained the order for opening the doors.
Celestial Venerable Yun and the Great Void's masters of creation worked together to set up the trap against the Grand Emperor, which proved that his relationship with the Great Void's masters of creation was pretty good. It was likely that when the masters of creation left the Great Void, they told him the order for opening the doors.
Qin Fengqing repeated the order for opening the doors and stressed it, saying, "You must remember the order correctly, or else you can't open the door to Carefree Village. Also, don't walk off in Carefree Village. Mom and Dad said that they already prepared a boat to fetch you after killing everything."
Qin Mu nodded.
Qin Fengqing's apparition dispersed, and his voice grew further and further away. "Remember, don't walk off by yourself, those tasty masters of creation are brutal…"
His apparition disappeared, and Qin Mu let out a ragged breath. He went to the left side and smiled. "Look at this, Brother Luo."
Luo Wushuang walked forward without any doubts. Qin Mu pushed open the door, and behind it was the Primordial Tree in the Primordial Realm. The gods watching the canopy of the tree immediately utilized their divine arts and divine weapons as they rushed towards them. Their shouts shook the heavens.
Qin Mu pushed Luo Wushuang into the door, smiling. "Brother Luo, return to the Primordial Realm first. I'll find you after some time."
Luo Wushuang fell into the Primordial Realm after being pushed. After seeing the thousands of gods coming after him, he felt goosebumps. He scolded and looked back, but he saw that the doors had already been closed.
He had no choice but to face them, thinking, 'This is a Celestial Venerable's territory, a celestial palace built in the Primordial Realm. If I kill the gods here, I'll end up offending that Celestial Venerable… Amongst the ten Celestial Venerables, I have already offended Celestial Empress, Mistress Yuanmu, and Celestial Venerable Xu. Celestial Venerable Hao won't let me go either. I have offended four Celestial Venerables, so it should be fine to offend one more!'
His vital qi coalesced and morphed into a divine knife against the gods guarding the celestial palace, killing them regretfully. 'It would be hard to get out of here if I don't kill them!'
'Brother Luo seems to have scolded me.'
Qin Mu opened the door again and then walked in front of the right house, opening its door once. After, he went to the middle house and thought, 'This fellow offended so many Celestial Venerables and heard so many secrets. Almost all of the ten Celestial Venerables of the celestial heavens were offended by him. Now, he even offended me, Celestial Venerable Mu. Tsk tsk…'
It wasn't that he didn't trust Luo Wushuang, it was just that Carefree Village was of great importance to him. It was better that fewer people knew about Carefree Village, so he sent him off first.
He opened and closed the doors in accordance with Qin Fengqing's prescribed order. After a while, it was done. He walked to the front of the middle house and opened the door with both of his hands.
Behind it, a bright light shone towards him, causing him to narrow his eyes. He blocked it with his hand, only letting it down when his eyes had adjusted.
In front of him was a dense forest whose trees reached the clouds. In the skies, giant birds flew about. One of them with six wings flew in front of a beautiful divine mountain.
The divine mountains were of various heights, and white clouds floated between them like the sea.
That six-winged bird flew past it and into the cloud sea. From it came a loud sound.
Qin Mu walked through the door and took a deep breath. The air was unbelievably fresh, and there was water vapor within it.
He heard the sound of water and turned around. The three houses were behind him again.
He saw that the house at the end of the Void Bridge was built on a tall peak. Those three houses behind him were surrounded by a waterfall. The water flowed down the cliff beside it, smashing onto a giant rock at the halfway point, splitting into two and torrenting down.
Qin Mu looked down and saw two rainbows at the halfway point.
'I clearly walked into the middle house, yet, when I came here, I walked out of there. How strange.'
He couldn't help but be wowed by the marvels created by the masters of creation. They were able to visualize such marvelous houses that weren't to be outdone by Celestial Venerable Yue's art of space!
'This should be Carefree Village, right?'
Qin Mu felt that this place was filled with dense consciousness. It should be a world created by the masters of creation. Yet, it wasn't destroyed like the Great Void, nor as peculiar and terrifying as it. It was way more peaceful.
A thought flashed through his mind, and a cup of nice wine appeared in his hand.
Qin Mu drank it and threw away the cup, which disappeared into thin air.
'What a strange place. I didn't use the Grand Overarching Supreme Consciousness, nor did I use much consciousness, yet nice wine appeared as soon as I thought about it. This place is incredible!'
Qin Mu couldn't help but be impressed, thinking, 'In that case, people here wouldn't have to work, would they? They can create beautiful wine and dishes by thinking about it, right? If one thinks about it, one could even create a beautiful palace immediately. If that's the case, this place can really be called Carefree Village!'
That being said, one had to attain a certain level of consciousness in order to be able to have whatever they visualize.
Qin Mu's consciousness cultivation was too strong. With a faint thought of his, the amount of consciousness he could transfer over was already a horrifying amount. It wasn't something a typical divine arts practitioner could attain.
He turned around and closed the door. Sitting on top of the waterfall, he mumbled to himself, "Brother wanted me to wait here, and my parents are coming. Then, I shall wait here and not be driven to loiter around by my curiosity!"
He looked downwards as if he was an old monk. Suddenly a thought appeared, 'If everything is available here, then why did Mother say it's an incomparably dangerous place that I wasn't allowed to go? In addition, Heavenly Teacher Scholar, Yan Yunxi, also refused to tell me about this place as she didn't want me to go.'
'Just now, Brother said that he got to fight and eat gods and devils every day after arriving at Carefree Village. Could Carefree Village have declared war against the masters of creation here?'
'Founding Emperor came here with Celestial Venerable Yun's map. Since Celestial Venerable Yun and the masters of creation got along, shouldn't they choose to leave Carefree Village alone? Why fight with it?'
All sorts of thoughts appeared in his mind, and then, he was unable to settle down. At that moment, rumbling footstep sounds came about.
Qin Mu immediately rose to look at it and suddenly saw a giant head looking up from under the waterfall. That giant was looking at him as the jet streams that came out of his nostrils formed two violent gusts that made his clothes flutter.
Qin Mu's heart clenched when he saw an erect hexagonal crystal etched into the forehead as if it was a vertical eye between the brows.
This was a master of creation!
Such a large master of creation must be powerful!
The giant opened his mouth, and his voice sounded like thousands of peals of thunder beside his ears, causing them to ring. This master of creation was visibly angry as he raised his palm, which was thousands of acres wide, preparing to slam it down on him!
The two eyelids in the heart of Qin Mu's brows opened, revealing the eye. The giant saw his eye and immediately retracted his palm. Soon, an extremely strong wave of consciousness went into Qin Mu's brain. "Which family do you belong to, kid? How old are you? Why are you here?"
Qin Mu released a sigh of relief. The goosebumps behind his neck vanished as he used his consciousness to communicate with that master of creation. He replied, "I'm about two years old. I ran here unintentionally. I saw that there were three houses here, so I came to look. Which clan are you from?"
"I am Xiu Zhong from the Xiu Clan. I observed that there was something wrong here, so I came to look."
That master of creation, Xiu Zhong, used his consciousness and praised him, "Your consciousness isn't weak. You have such great accomplishments for someone only two years old. Your cultivation is stronger than adults. Who is your master?"
"My master is Shu Jun," Qin Mu honestly replied.
Within the Grand Primordium Origin Stone in his third eye, Shu Jun's head felt immensely proud. The two eyes jumped around in their sockets, and he laughed. "B*stard, calling me your master to take advantage of me. However, I don't blame you. Hehe, use my name, and this Xiu Zhong will probably be extremely scared and kowtow and pay you his respects! After all, I'm one of the three kings of the primordial era!"
Xiu Zhong's third eye was visibly perplexed. His third eye was the Grand Primordium Divine Stone, yet, like a real eye, it could display all sorts of emotions. He shook his head and said, "I have never heard of him, but your consciousness is strong, so he likely isn't some no-namer either. It's treacherous here, as hooligans appear around here often. Follow me, I'll lead you to a safe place."
He lifted his palm and laid it on the waterfall, signaling for Qin Mu to jump onto it.
Qin Mu hesitated as he was unwilling.
This master of creation's consciousness moved, and he flew up against his will, landing on his palm. He couldn't help but shudder.
Xiu Zhong's consciousness was strong, thousands of times stronger than him. It made him unable to resist, bound to the point that even his vital qi couldn't move!
Although Qin Mu's current consciousness wasn't as strong as the celestial heavens' number one consciousness practitioner, Yan Shaoqing, he still had higher quality than him.
Xiu Zhong's consciousness was thousands of times stronger than his, and its quality was even stronger than Qin Mu's. Such people's consciousness was truly terrifying!
Xiu Zhong was likely not a typical master of creation. He was probably some higher-up amongst the Great Void's masters of creation!
"You are only two years old, so how can you run around like that? That Shu Jun guy is beyond belief! He's not scared of you being taken away by those monsters at all? Their consciousnesses are stronger than yours by a lot."
Light flowed out of the Grand Primordium Divine Stone in the heart of Xiu Zhong's brows, and a giant treasure carriage appeared out of thin air. He brought him on. It was pulled by a 900-mile long dragon, and soon, they flew into the air.
"If we encounter those hooligans, you're dead."
Xiu Zhong waved his hand gently, and the sun set. Vast stars filled the sky and morphed to form a galaxy. The dragon pulled the treasure carriage cheerfully in the galaxy as Xiu Zhong continued, "Those hooligans lack reason, especially their leader, the b*stard named Qin Ye. He's a brutal and arrogant person."
Shu Jun used Qin Mu's third eye to watch the scene outside the treasure carriage. He shivered and immediately used his consciousness to transmit his voice. "You had better be careful! This master of creation isn't much weaker than me at my prime!"
