Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1524
In front of the hall, a broken Dao fruit floated, and in it was a naked woman. She looked at Qin Mu who walked out of the hall in a daze.
"Celestial Venerable Mu?" she called out softly.
Qin Mu ignored her and sat down in front of the hall, lost in thought.
The Dao Fruit flew to his side, and the woman in the Dao Fruit said, "You have met the master of Miluo Palace, right? Does he give you a feeling of admiration? I feel the same way. Only he can create such a glorious god city and stand at the end of the universe forever. Even the calamity can't be destroyed. You killed the reincarnation of the Grand Emperor, so the responsibility of the Grand Emperor will fall on your shoulders…"
Qin Mu stood up and glanced at her. "What responsibility does Miluo Palace Master have for the Grand Emperor?"
The woman in the Dao Fruit was about to continue when waves suddenly surged on the long river of chaos. A person stepped on the long river and ascended Miluo Palace.
Qin Mu looked into the distance and saw Celestial Venerable Xiao walking over step by step, covered in blood. His aura was overflowing, and the forty-seven halls of the thirty-six celestial palaces behind him were blazing like divine flames.
This aura was so strong that even Qin Mu, who was far away, felt the pressure!
'Celestial Venerable Xiao won?' Qin Mu was astonished.
Celestial Venerable Xiao fell to the ground with her face and didn't move at all. If she fell to the ground in this position, her nose would touch the ground, and she would slide several feet away.
If it was an ordinary person, their nose would most likely be crippled, but a Celestial Venerable wouldn't.
"Celestial Venerable Hao actually won the battle between Celestial Venerable Xiao and Celestial Venerable Hao!"
Qin Mu was astonished. How did Celestial Venerable Hao defeat Celestial Venerable Xiao?
Celestial Venerable Xiao was the reincarnation of Celestial Emperor Tai Chu!
Qin Mu and Heavenly Lady Qiang had once worked together to kill Celestial Venerable Xiao, but Celestial Venerable Xiao forced him to flee. Now that Celestial Venerable Xiao was severely injured, didn't that mean Celestial Venerable Hao was stronger than him?
However, Celestial Venerable Hao shouldn't have such strong battle power!
Although Celestial Venerable Hao controlled all the resources in the world, Celestial Venerable Xiao also had the Primordial Tree and was once Celestial Emperor. Now that he had control of the Grand Primordium Mine, his cultivation was even more unfathomable after escaping from the chaotic space!
Even if Celestial Venerable Hao had Tai Su's help, it was almost impossible to defeat him!
'Is the power of Taisu's Dao weapon really that strong? Or is there something else going on in the battle between Hao and Xiao? However, this is a chance… A great chance to take down Celestial Venerable Xiao and sink the river!'
Qin Mu immediately pushed all the thoughts in his mind to the back of his head and revealed a fierce gaze. "Wait a minute! He already has the power of a Dao practitioner. If I take him to Sunken River, I might not be able to kill him… I'll chop him to death then."
The woman in the Dao Fruit was about to tell him about the responsibility of the Grand Emperor when she saw Qin Mu, who was still in low spirits a moment ago, become full of vigor. He sprinted towards Celestial Venerable Xiao while pulling out his Calamity Sword!
At the same time, the forty-nine Heavenly Dao Dao weapons in his Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure danced in the air and formed the form of the supreme treasure, Heaven Knife. The primordial spirit behind him grabbed them with murderous intent.
Another arm popped out from under his armpit, and he grabbed the Taiyi walking stick in his hand. He stomped his feet, and the God Execution Stage appeared. Even though the two Blood Fiend God Execution Knives hadn't recovered to their peak state, their power was still extraordinary.
The woman in the Dao Fruit was astonished, but she soon relaxed. "This is the Young Master Mu I know…"
Qin Mu didn't have any distracting thoughts, and his speed became faster. At this moment, a sudden change occurred. A huge hall in the Miluo Palace suddenly creaked open, and light shone out from the door, shining on Celestial Venerable Xiao.
Qin Mu stopped and looked at the light. He could faintly see a figure walking along the light towards Celestial Venerable Xiao!
The light retracted and returned to the hall, but Celestial Venerable Xiao had already vanished.
Qin Mu looked at the great hall and was bewildered. He saw that it was none other than the Numinous Sky Hall!
"Which young master's treasure hall is Numinous Sky Hall?" he asked the Dao Fruit flying over.
The woman in the Dao Fruit said, "Third Young Master."
Qin Mu frowned and looked at the Numinous Sky Hall. He asked solemnly, "Third young master is currently in the Numinous Sky Hall?"
The woman in the Dao Fruit shook her head. "Third Young Master is elusive and rarely appears. He should be in the destruction of Universe 6 right now."
Qin Mu's gaze flickered. Back then, when the Grand Emperor and Grand Primordium led everyone into Jade Capital City, they might not have seen the master of Miluo Palace, but they must have seen Numinous Sky Hall!
And now, Celestial Venerable Xiao was heavily injured. A beam of light shot out from Numinous Sky Hall, and Qin Mu could faintly see a figure in it.
Was this related to the Grand Emperor and Grand Primordium's exploration of Jade Capital City?
Why did the Grand Emperor and the Grand Primordium choose to visualize the Numinous Sky Hall? Why did the Grand Primordium create the celestial heavens after becoming Celestial Emperor? Why did his supreme palace imitate the Numinous Sky Hall of the Jade Capital's Numinous Sky Hall?
Why was it that when the Celestial Palace Realm was created, the Numinous Sky Realm and Emperor's Throne Realm became the highest realms?
Why was someone in the Numinous Sky Hall rescuing Celestial Venerable Xiao?
"The water of this Miro Palace is deeper than I imagined, it's muddier!"
Qin Mu composed himself. If the master of Miluo Palace wasn't lying, then after the master of Miluo Palace had transformed into the Dao, Miluo Palace had already split into different powers, trying to secretly control the future universe.
The path that the master of Numinous Sky Hall, 'Third Young Master', had taken was definitely the path of the Jade Capital Trap!
"The master of Miluo Palace said that the Jade Capital Trap doesn't exist. What he meant was to cultivate according to the layout of the Jade Capital, and one would be able to obtain the various Great Daos of the people who had achieved the Dao in the past universe, thus achieving the Dao. When one cultivates to Miro Palace, one would be a person who had achieved the Dao. At the very least, one would achieve the Dao with strength! This path is correct."
"However, someone tampered with this path from the start. They changed the Ultimate Realm, Miro Palace, to Numinous Sky Hall, to Numinous Sky and Emperor's Throne Realm!"
"And this person is naturally…"
Qin Mu put away the Calamity Sword, the Heavenly Dao Treasure, and the Taiyi walking stick. His gaze landed on the Numinous Sky Hall. "Third Young Master! Back then, the Grand Emperor, Grand Primordium, and the rest came because of you."
"In that case, the ancestral court's sacrificial altar, the Grand Emperor's massacre of the masters of creation race, and the creation of void beasts and mother beasts, whose scheme was it? Second young master, fourth young master? Or fifth young master, sixth young master?"
'These two traps must have been set up at the same time after the Grand Emperor and Tai Chu's first place entered the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court! The Grand Emperor and Tai Chu are both their pawns! They are pawns that fight openly and secretly!'
"It was easy for Tai Yi to expel the masters of creation and the ancient gods, forcing them to leave the ancestral court. It was an attempt to break out of the trap of the ancestral court's sacrificial altar. However, he didn't break out of Third Young Master's Jade Capital Trap."
Qin Mu took in a deep breath and tried his best to look at Tai Yi's actions with a detached state of mind so that his thoughts wouldn't be affected by the words of the master of Miluo Palace. He said in a low voice, "Tai Yi is guarding the black mountain and repairing it day and night. The black mountain should be another trap. This trap is the scheme of the stowaways, restraining Tai Yi on the black mountain and forcing him to be unable to leave the black mountain and the ancestral court. Meanwhile, Tai Yi is using me to break the trap."
"Tai Yi won my trust easily and gave me his willow branches, iron buckets, and Dao dew to help me repair the black mountain. He then took the chance to leave to do some things he couldn't do in the past."
"When he left the black mountain, he came to Jade Capital City. The battle with the master of Miluo Palace was one of his goals. He wanted to know if the master of Miluo Palace was dead or alive. It could also be to find out what the master of Miluo Palace was thinking. The other goal was to set up his own trap."
"Therefore, the reason he was sent into the fourth universe wasn't entirely because of the master of Miluo Palace. It could also be because he wanted to return to the past."
"Only when we return to the past will it be convenient for him to set up his plans."
'Logically speaking, I should have stayed in the black mountain and continuously mended it, unable to leave. However, he didn't expect that I would leave such a boring task to Xu Shenghua and run out on my own. I've always hated repeating the same thing day after day. In that case…'
Qin Mu fell into deep thought as he paced back and forth. From time to time, he would raise his eyes to look at Hall of Numinous Sky, and from time to time, he would look at the other halls of Miluo Palace, such as Hall of Supreme Pure Jade Hall and Purple Firmament Hall.
'In that case, is the chaotic space that Celestial Venerable Yue exiled Celestial Venerable Xiao into another trap? Is it a trap laid by Tai Yi, or is it a trap laid by the young masters of Miluo Palace? That place is also a refuge that Crimson Emperor found for the Crimson Emperor God Race. The floating world is there…'
Crimson Emperor found that place, but he couldn't leave alive. Thus, his body fused with a small universe and transformed into a floating world.
Celestial Venerable Yue had once wandered there and discovered many inconceivable ruins. Celestial Venerable Xiao had been exiled there by Celestial Venerable Yue, and after coming out, his abilities had improved greatly.
Therefore, Qin Mu suspected that it could also be a trap laid by the 'young masters' of Miluo Palace.
He let out a shaky breath. It seemed like it was a coincidence that Tai Yi had fallen into the fourth universe, but now he suddenly thought of many things. He felt that this was an incident that Tai Yi had deliberately created that looked like a coincidence but was actually inevitable!
'Celestial Venerable Hao defeated Celestial Venerable Xiao. Did he rely on his own abilities, or was it a contest between two planners?'
Qin Mu thought deeper. Was there another mastermind behind Celestial Venerable Hao?
In this battle, Celestial Venerable Hao seemed to be the victor, but in reality, the mastermind behind Celestial Venerable Hao was the victor!
"There are still many secrets in this universe, but there aren't many that can stump me. The traps laid by these young masters can stump me."
Qin Mu looked at the woman in the tattered Dao Fruit and Dao Fruit beside him and suddenly smiled. "Did the master of Miro Palace give the Grand Emperor a mission to stir up chaos and kill more strong practitioners in the ancestral court to activate the blood sacrifice?"
The woman in the Dao Fruit said with a smile, "The Grand Emperor is useless. Only Celestial Venerable Mu and Young Master Mu can do this."
Qin Mu laughed loudly and shook his head as he walked towards Miluo Palace. "Miluo Palace Master, how many sins have you committed to fake your name? This trap can fool the Grand Emperor, but it can't fool me. I won't fall into it. I want to stay here for a few days to comprehend the Dao markings of Miluo Palace. You can leave now."
The woman in the Dao Fruit was stunned, and she shouted, "What do you mean by that? What do you mean by how many sins you have committed? The master of Miluo Palace personally handed this mission to Grand Emperor Ju Yushi!"
Qin Mu sneered and turned back with a smile. "Have you met the master of Miro Palace?"
The woman in the Dao Fruit was stunned.
Qin Mu shook his head and came to the front of the palace. He carefully analyzed the runes on the palace walls and muttered, "Even after achieving the Dao, she's still a silly woman…"
"Who are you scolding?" The woman in the Dao Fruit was furious.
