Celestial Venerable Hao had also become incomparably old, and it seemed like he couldn't even stand steadily. However, he was still full of energy, and he had more teeth than the other Celestial Venerables.

Celestial Venerable Xu had also become an old woman. The two horns on her head seemed to have dried up, and there wasn't much firepower circulating in them.

As for Celestial Venerable Huo, because he had a mask covering his face, no one could see how old he was. However, from the skin that was revealed on his hands and neck, he was also very old.

"Heavenly Lady Qiang, you are at the end of your rope!"

Celestial Venerable Huo's voice was full of vicissitudes, but it still gave off a righteous feeling. "You won't have a good ending if you follow Qin Mu. You guys have been on the same boat for so long, and Qin Mu has preserved his youth. However, has he ever helped you resist the invasion of the destructive aura? No!"

Celestial Venerable Xu continued, "He's waiting for you to weaken and take your life! However, we are different. As long as you lead the way, we won't take your life. On the contrary, do you think Celestial Venerable Mu will let you live?"

Heavenly Lady Qiang's gaze landed on Celestial Venerable Hao.

Celestial Venerable Hao was old and frail, but his voice was loud and clear. His complexion was slightly better than the others, and it was obvious that his cultivation was the highest among them.

"Heavenly Lady Qiang, we are the ten Celestial Venerables."

Celestial Venerable Hao smiled slightly and said leisurely, "The ten Celestial Venerables share the same interests, sharing the same breath and branches. Over the past million years, geniuses have emerged in large numbers, like countless stars in the sky. However, only the ten of us share the same interests, forming an alliance and supporting each other until today. You should be able to make a decision."

Heavenly Lady Qiang hesitated.

At the bow of the ship, Qin Mu said leisurely, "Grand Emperor, don't forget your identity. Now that the ten Celestial Venerables have split into two factions, which one of them can tolerate you? As an existence that dominated the primordial era for billions of years, the Grand Emperor that suppressed everything, are you willing to be a helper under Celestial Venerable Hao or Celestial Emperor Tai Chu?"

Heavenly Lady Qiang's wrinkled face flickered.

Qin Mu continued to say, "Furthermore, Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest can't even protect themselves. They are already so old. Their Great Dao is crumbling, and their Dao markings are crumbling. They are just a bunch of pitiful old men and old women. How can such old fellows be my match?"

His gaze went past Heavenly Lady Qiang and landed on Celestial Venerable Gong, Ancestral God King, and Celestial Venerable Xu. He said plainly, "You guys attached yourselves to Celestial Venerable Hao because he received Goddess Tai Su's support. You guys were just using each other. But now, even Goddess Tai Su is old. She can't even protect herself, much less you guys! If I were you…"

He chuckled and said leisurely, "Everyone, as long as you make a move and get rid of Celestial Venerable Hao, Celestial Venerable Huo, and Tai Su, I can restore your youth and vitality."

On the Dao Tree, Celestial Venerable Hao was astonished. Celestial Venerable Huo secretly took two steps back to put some distance between himself and Ancestral God King, Celestial Venerable Gong, and the rest.

Qin Mu continued to say, "You guys have no path of retreat now. If you walk back, you will die of old age on the long river of chaos if you can't reach the end. Now, you only have one path, and that is to submit to me! Only by relying on me can your lives be saved! And there's only one condition to submit to me!"

His gaze swept across Celestial Venerable Huo and Celestial Venerable Hao.

Ancestral God King frowned slightly and looked at Celestial Venerable Gong and Celestial Venerable Xu.

They were indeed tempted.

Suddenly, Tai Su's voice rang out, and he said with a smile, "Everyone says that I can manipulate the hearts of people. It seems that Celestial Venerable Mu is also an expert in manipulating the hearts of people. Celestial Venerable Mu, dispel your thoughts. They can no longer betray Celestial Venerable Hao. No matter if it's Celestial Venerable Huo, Celestial Venerable Gong, or Ancestral God King, they all had a favor to ask of me, and I was the one who healed their injuries. If they betrayed me, as long as I will it, their injuries would explode and they would die!"

Her words were clearly for Qin Mu to hear, but they were actually for the other Celestial Venerables to hear so that they wouldn't dare to make any abnormal movements.

Qin Mu laughed. "If Heavenly Lady Qiang landed in your hands, wouldn't she end up the same way?"

"Celestial Venerable Mu is right!"

Celestial Venerable Xiao's voice was loud and clear. Everyone looked towards the source of the voice and saw a few old men and old women walking over together from a dry Dao Tree.

Heavenly Lady Yan was a short and old woman. Her legs were trembling as she held onto the Dao Tree. Shi Qiluo was a bald old man with a full white beard. His eyes were sunken in, and he held a tattered Hundred Treasure Chest in his hand.

God Emperor Lang Xuan and Celestial Venerable Xiao had both become old. Although Celestial Venerable Xiao was old, he had Celestial Emperor's extraordinary bearing. God Emperor Lang Xuan had inherited the looks of Grand Primordium and Celestial Venerable Gong. Even though he was old, he was still extraordinary.

The two ancient gods of taiji were much older, and their snake tails coiled around the tree to prevent themselves from falling.

Many of the scales on the snakeskin of these two ancient gods had aged and molted. The scales were mottled, and they were no longer as sacred and dignified as before.

Qin Mu revealed a smile and swept his gaze across the faces of the Celestial Venerables and the gods. He suddenly laughed out loud and pointed at the Celestial Venerables and the gods, unable to straighten his back.

Everyone's expression sank, and they looked at him coldly. After a long time, Celestial Venerable Xiao waited for him to stop laughing before asking, "What is Celestial Venerable Mu laughing about?"

"I'm laughing at the ten Celestial Venerables."

Qin Mu straightened his back and wiped away the tears from his smile. He took a few deep breaths and said with a smile, "I'm laughing at the fact that you guys are all one family. Celestial Venerable Xiao is Celestial Emperor Tai Chu, and there are many illegitimate children gathered here, as well as the first and second families."

The white-haired Shi Qiluo rolled his eyes at him and said angrily, "Celestial Venerable Mu, don't talk nonsense. That's his brother-in-law, not his second wife. He's his sister-in-law, and he likes her."

Heavenly Lady Yan snorted and remained silent.

Qin Mu supported himself on the bow of the ship and said with a smile, "This ancient god of taiji and Tai Chu are both egg-born ancient gods, so they can be considered siblings. Celestial Venerable Hao here is also the illegitimate son of Celestial Emperor Tai Chu. He founded his own sect and gathered four Celestial Venerables. Among the four Celestial Venerables, Celestial Venerable Gong is Tai Chu's lover, and he's also God Emperor Lang Xuan's mother."

He laughed again, laughing so hard that he couldn't stand straight. "Tai Su is also the younger sister of Tai Chu! Other than Ancestral God King who killed his father, Celestial Venerable Huo who abhorred evil, and Celestial Venerable Xu who tried to kill his father, these ten Celestial Venerables are actually your entire family! From the start of Dragon Han until now, power has never escaped the control of your family!"

Everyone's faces turned dark.

Heavenly Lady Qiang said indifferently, "I'm still Tai Chu's godfather. Tai Chu's power was taken from me."

"In that case, from the primordial era until now, power has always been in the hands of your family."

Qin Mu straightened his back and wiped away his smile. He said indifferently, "In my opinion, these kinds of days should end."

He slowly pulled out the Calamity Sword, and from his carefree and unrestrained state to his solemn and composed expression, he said leisurely, "Everyone, the day of Celestial Emperor and his family ruling this universe is over. It's time to end it. You guys are old."

His gaze swept across the faces of the Celestial Venerables, and a mocking expression appeared on his face. "You guys are really old and decayed. It's not just because you have been invaded by the great calamity of destruction, but because you have become old and decayed in power."

He flicked the sword gently and stared at Zhen Ming's sword blade. "I'm still very young. You guys are no longer my match."

"Impudent!"

The two Dao Trees suddenly moved and rushed towards the small boat!

The nine Celestial Venerables were powerful. Even though they had been invaded by the aura of the great calamity along the way, even though they were so old, they were still Celestial Venerables and possessed boundless combat power!

Qin Mu's gaze was incomparably calm. The small boat under his feet suddenly sped up and sped away. It didn't fight the Celestial Venerables on the two Dao Trees head-on.

On the river surface of the Chaotic River, it was definitely not a place of battle.

Fighting here was too dangerous. If one was careless, they would fall into the water and be turned into ashes by the great calamity.

Although he was confident in fighting these Celestial Venerables, he wouldn't let himself fall into such a dangerous situation.

On the long river of chaos, two Dao Trees and a small boat broke through the waves and passed through the layers of chaos qi. Their speed became faster.

At the back of the ship, Heavenly Lady Qiang grabbed two God Execution Mysterious Knives in her old age. She gritted her teeth, and one of her teeth fell out. She swallowed it back into her stomach and thought to herself, 'How should I fight this battle? Should I fight that Qin fellow to the death and steal his weird tree, or should I fight the nine Celestial Venerables with him?'

She had no idea what to do. If she stood on Celestial Venerable Hao's side, Celestial Venerable Gong wouldn't tolerate it. Furthermore, Celestial Venerable Hao would definitely make her submit to him. He was the Grand Emperor, and he ruled the world. He could only be a person of authority and not a servant!

She couldn't rely on Celestial Venerable Xiao either. Celestial Venerable Xiao was the first one who couldn't tolerate her!

She understood Qin Mu extremely well, and she was becoming less useful to him. If Qin Mu came ashore, he might even get rid of her first!

If Qin Mu wanted to save Celestial Venerable Ling and Celestial Venerable Yun, he had to get rid of her first!

Just as she was hesitating, the small boat gently stopped and reached the opposite shore. It rushed to the surface and lifted Heavenly Lady Qiang up, turning into a walking stick that Qin Mu carried on his back.

Heavenly Lady Qiang's expression wavered. She looked at the two Dao Trees that were rushing towards the shore and the Celestial Venerables on the trees. Suddenly, two God Execution Mysterious Knives rose and slashed at Celestial Venerable Xiao, who was closest to the Dao Tree. She shouted, "Celestial Venerable Mu, I'll block Celestial Venerable Xiao. Get rid of them!"

As soon as she finished speaking, she exerted strength in her arms, and the two baleful auras that were rushing towards Celestial Venerable Xiao swept back. One left, one right, they slashed towards Qin Mu's head!

However, Qin Mu seemed to have expected her to attack him. Two sword lights flashed past, and two crisp clangs rang out. The two God Execution Mysterious Knives were severed by the sword lights!

Heavenly Lady Qiang was shocked. The God Execution Mysterious Knife was also invaded by the Great Calamity of Destruction and was no longer as strong as before.

The broken knife in her hand twisted its body like a dragon, and just as it was about to reattach itself, Qin Mu had already closed in on her. The sword light in his hand flashed, and he used Calamity Sword the moment he made a move. The sword light shot forward like a rainbow!

Heavenly Lady Qiang shouted, and decaying celestial palaces flew out from her back to form the celestial heavens. Her strong consciousness burst forth and attacked Qin Mu. At the same time, the two baleful auras and divine knives in her hands reassembled and flew towards Qin Mu like long whips!

Dang dang dang dang!

Extremely concentrated sounds rang out, and the two God Execution Mysterious Knives broke inch by inch in the sword light. The rainbow-like sword light broke through Heavenly Lady Qiang's consciousness, and as the sword light surged, the halls in the celestial heavens were flattened!

The sword light rushed from one end of the celestial heavens to the other, destroying everything in its path!

Chi—

The long sword light rushed out from the other end of Heavenly Lady Qiang's celestial heavens and rushed towards Celestial Venerable Xiao. Celestial Venerable Xiao snorted, and God Emperor Lang Xuan immediately went forward to stab Qin Mu's sword light with his divine essence.

In his line of sight, he saw that his finger had been sliced cleanly by this sword light. The first finger of his index finger was split into two halves and flew out to the sides, followed by the second finger and the third finger!

At the same time, Qin Mu had already arrived in front of Heavenly Lady Qiang. He raised his Calamity Sword and pushed it forward, smashing it on her face.

Heavenly Lady Qiang's face distorted, and her teeth flew out one after another. She spun and smashed into the river of chaos.

Just as she was about to fall into the river, she flipped her palm, and a tree stump appeared in her hand. Heavenly Lady Qiang stood on the stump and chuckled. "Celestial Venerable Mu, thank you for sending me off! I can go to the next three rivers myself!"

There were no teeth in her mouth, and her mouth was leaking air, so she couldn't speak clearly.

Qin Mu sheathed his sword and said indifferently, "Grand Emperor, you are going in the wrong direction."

Heavenly Lady Qiang was shocked. She looked back and saw herself sandwiched between two Dao Trees. The Dao Tree carried her to the shore, and the nine Celestial Venerables and three ancient gods walked down from the trees.

Heavenly Lady Qiang had no choice but to go ashore. She was furious. 'It's not that I walked in the wrong direction, but that strike of yours sent me in the opposite direction! This brat is forcing me to become his enemy!'

"Everyone, I have been taught by the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village since I was young. My family's teachings are strict, and the nine elders have taught me to respect the old and love the young."

Qin Mu's right wrist trembled slightly, and he pulled out a sword flower. With the Calamity Sword on his back, he raised his left hand and smiled. "However, I have no choice but to beat up the elderly today. Ten Celestial Venerables, three ancient gods, please."

He raised his foot and stomped down heavily. With a thunderous boom, his divine treasure realm expanded and absorbed the thirteen Celestial Venerables and gods into his divine treasure realm!
