Qin Mu, Ah Chou, and Earth Count fell silent. The two of them were still willing to listen to Heaven Duke, but it was doubtful how much they could listen.

Heaven Duke stood there and wanted to say something, but after a moment, he couldn't think of what to say.

Qin Mu and Earth Count were both terrifyingly stubborn fellows. It was almost impossible to persuade them to change their minds.

Furthermore, Heaven Duke himself wasn't clean either. Back then, for his own selfish desires, he didn't consider the situation Qin Mu and Eternal Peace were in and allowed Celestial Venerable Hong and the other Celestial Venerables to punish him.

Qin Mu was his ally, so he didn't consider the situation of his ally. However, Qin Mu still tried his best to invite numerous experts, from Founding Emperor Lang Wo to Celestial Venerable You. He even personally went up to save him and revive him, giving him hope of achieving the Dao.

Otherwise, Heaven Duke wouldn't have had a chance to survive!

This time, Celestial Venerable Gong borrowed Youdu to go to the Ruins of End to suppress Qin Mu. Earth Count also took the chance to slaughter the soldiers of the celestial heavens in Jade Lock Pass, attracting the wrath of the celestial heavens. It was exactly the same as Heaven Duke's actions back then.

He wasn't considering Qin Mu and Eternal Peace, but for his own selfishness.

As allies, both of them weren't qualified.

Before them, South Deity Zhu Que, who had made the decision on her own, was the same. Without informing Qin Mu, she rebelled and lured Celestial Venerable Huo over. She wanted to borrow Celestial Venerable Huo's hands to break free from the restraints of the ancient gods, but she was suppressed by Celestial Venerable Huo in the Hall of Fragrance.

Even so, Qin Mu still tried his best to find a way to break the Hall of Fragrance and revive South Deity Zhu Que.

From this point, Heaven Duke, Earth Count, and South Deity owed Qin Mu a lot.

After a long time, Qin Mu said bleakly, "Earth Count, no matter what, Youdu can't fall into the hands of the celestial heavens. Otherwise, I won't be able to reverse the situation. I hope you have full confidence. This is the last time your Ancient God faction will act on your own. If you break free from the restraints of the ancient gods, there are other ancient gods that will follow suit. Forgive me for not saving you."

He said indifferently, "At that time, I will watch you guys court death."

Ah Chou Earth Count was silent for a moment before saying, "Many thanks."

Qin Mu snorted and left with a flick of his sleeves. His voice came from afar as he said, "The celestial heavens will not mobilize the army of the celestial heavens to kill you. The few Celestial Venerables are enough. I will do my best to invite Founding Emperor and the rest to assist. However, if Youdu falls into the hands of the celestial heavens, hehe… I will kneel in front of Celestial Venerable Hao and surrender!"

His body passed through the hellfire and vanished without a trace.

Heaven Duke saw him off and praised, "Celestial Venerable Mu's abilities are becoming more superb. You aren't even afraid of karmic sin flames. It's just that your temper is too fiery, calling yourself my father in front of us."

"His cultivation has already reached the level of a Celestial Venerable. He isn't considered weak among the ten Celestial Venerables. I don't understand his abilities anymore."

Ah Chou Earth Count said, "He was indeed angered this time. I could feel the anger in his Dao heart being ignited. If you hadn't run over just now, he would have raised his fist to fight me and beat me up."

Heaven Duke smiled. "How would he dare?"

Ah Chou Earth Count didn't say anything.

Heaven Duke asked curiously, "How did he avoid the senses of the Great Dao of Youdu?"

Ah Chou Earth Count shook his head. "I don't know. However, I can sense a strange Great Dao in his body. This Great Dao allows him to hide the cause and effect of reviving the dead deeply. I can discover this, but the Great Dao of Youdu can't."

Heaven Duke said with a smile, "Your realm has become even more profound, so I haven't seen that kind of Great Dao. Dao friend, do you think Celestial Venerable Xu will still recognize you as Ah Chou?"

Ah Chou Earth Count was silent for a moment, and a smile appeared on his incomparably ugly face. "She will recognize it. Isn't her goal to become one of the ten Celestial Venerables to kill Earth Count and save father Ah Chou?"

Heaven Duke frowned slightly and was slightly worried.

He raised his head to take a look, and Youdu was currently filled with austere air. There were already quite a number of Youdu monsters that had escaped while Celestial Venerable You wasn't around, planning to run to the mortal world to avoid disaster.

Qin Mu walked out of Youdu and came to the place where the celestial river intersected with the ghost river. The celestial river had entered Youdu and transformed into the ghost river. Numerous Youdu monsters and devils had smuggled themselves into the world of the living from there.

When he got there, he saw countless monsters swimming in the torrential water. Even the celestial river was dyed black!

Youdu wasn't like Xuandu. The people of Xuandu loved and respected Heaven Duke, so when the calamity of Xuandu descended, not many people escaped. Instead, they risked their lives to fight against the celestial heavens.

On the other hand, the monsters and devils of Youdu were born from all kinds of negative emotions in the world. The Youdu devil gods also cultivated the devil path, so when facing the calamity of Youdu, the first thing they thought of was to escape.

"Celestial Venerable Mu!" Someone suddenly called out to him.

Qin Mu looked towards the source of the voice and saw Celestial Venerable Xu standing on the water surface of the celestial river. Under her feet was pitch black river water, and countless monsters swarmed over. Behind her, more of them formed an army of devils that covered the sky.

Qin Mu stopped, and his gaze landed on Celestial Venerable Xu's face. He asked indifferently, "What advice does Celestial Venerable Xu have?"

"I don't dare to be enlightened. In terms of seniority, I still have to call you uncle."

Celestial Venerable Xu bowed slightly and said, "Celestial Venerable Gong escorted your uncle to the Ruins of End, preparing to use him to fill up the eye of the sea. However, she didn't return for a long time, yet Celestial Venerable Mu returned alive. Could it be that Celestial Venerable Gong has met with misfortune?"

Qin Mu said with a smile that wasn't a smile, "You guys have planted so many spies in Eternal Peace. Are you still not clear if Celestial Venerable Gong is dead or not?"

Celestial Venerable Xu said, "Celestial Venerable Gong has indeed met with a mishap. Someone saw her turning into ashes in the Primordial Realm, and your mount went to kill Celestial Venerable Gong's reincarnation. Someone found the corpse of Celestial Venerable Gong's reincarnation by the sea. If I die in the future, Uncle will order people to kill my reincarnation in Eternal Peace without mercy."

Qin Mu laughed, and the smile on his face vanished. "Celestial Venerable Xu, you seem to be in a good mood. Ever since I met you, this has been the longest conversation between us."

Celestial Venerable Xu smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable Hao has already imprinted the ultimate void and cultivated the Dao Tree and Dao Flower, opening up the Grand Overarching Qi Celestial Heavens."

Qin Mu said, "Celestial Venerable Hao has this ability, so it's not strange for him to imprint the Ultimate Void."

Celestial Venerable Xu said, "Celestial Venerable Hao said that other than imprinting the Great Overarching Heaven, he sensed another path to attaining the Dao. He cultivated two kinds of Great Celestial Heavens techniques, and there was one technique that had yet to achieve the Dao."

Qin Mu's pupils contracted, but he didn't say anything.

Celestial Venerable Xu continued, "Celestial Emperor has returned from the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court. He used his powerful corporeal body to imprint the Ultimate Void and opened up the Great Overarching Heaven, the Great Overarching Heaven of Absolute Beginning."

Qin Mu shook his head and said, "Tai Chu is half crippled. Even with the support of the four young masters, he can't complete the Dao of Tai Chu His Great Overarching Heaven isn't the Tai Chu Great Overarching Heaven, but a Qi Great Overarching Heaven. His destiny has already been lost, and he's no match for Celestial Venerable Hao."

Celestial Venerable Xu exclaimed in admiration, "Uncle, you are very accurate in your judgment. No wonder you could live until now. After Celestial Emperor returned to the celestial heavens, he issued an edict and prepared to abdicate. He has already made Celestial Venerable Hao the heir apparent."

Qin Mu's heart pounded violently, and he said solemnly, "Third young master and fourth young master have become allies?"

Celestial Venerable Xu couldn't help exclaiming in admiration, "Uncle is truly powerful. You managed to guess what happened just from Celestial Emperor's intention to abdicate. Niece admires you."

Qin Mu stopped talking.

Celestial Venerable Xu said, "Uncle is so powerful, you should be able to see that Earth Count has no way to survive. Why do you have to be like a mantis trying to stop a cart from hitting a rock with an egg?"

Qin Mu laughed loudly, and his body suddenly shifted. In the next moment, he was standing in front of Celestial Venerable Xu.

His aura burst forth and collided with Celestial Venerable Xu's aura. With a loud boom, Celestial Venerable Xu's black robe expanded in all directions!

The black halo behind her head swirled furiously, and the auras of countless Youdu monsters and devil gods were connected to her. However, the billions of monsters and devil gods were also blown into the air!

Boom!

An incomparably violent tremor came from the sky, and the sky warped and swirled. The huge face of Xuandu Heaven Duke appeared in the sky, and his snow white eyes were brighter than billions of suns as he stared at Qin Mu!

Qin Mu raised his head and looked at Heaven Duke's face. He sneered and said, "Ancestral God King, a clown that killed his father."

Heaven Duke roared, and boundless starlight pressed down from the sky. However, before it could reach Qin Mu's head, it was blocked by the World Tree that appeared behind Qin Mu.

Qin Mu retracted his aura and walked past Celestial Venerable Xu. He said softly, "Virtuous Niece, no matter what, Earth Count is your father. Do you want to be like Ancestral God King and be a murderer of your father?"

Celestial Venerable Xu revealed a smile. "Celestial Venerable Mu, you have no chance of winning!"

Qin Mu laughed loudly and left. His voice came from afar. "Celestial Venerable Hao and Celestial Emperor Tai Chu are merely the dogs of the three young masters and four young masters, while I'm the seventh young master. You guys are far inferior to me!"

Celestial Venerable Xu frowned. Ancestral God King controlled Heaven Duke's corporeal body and looked at her with a questioning look.

Celestial Venerable Xu shook his head and said, "I don't have the confidence to make him stay. Celestial Venerable Hao and His Majesty Tai Chu aren't around, so there's no need to fight with him. Youdu is more important."

Ancestral God King slowly vanished.

Qin Mu walked along the celestial river to Eternal Peace and landed. Eternal Peace was changing day by day, and it had been over twenty years since he had returned. Looking around, he saw numerous divine cities floating in the sky. Tall buildings stood tall, and there were ships coming and going among the buildings and palaces.

At this moment, the paths, skills, and divine arts of Eternal Peace were changing day by day, so he was slightly at ease.

'I have to find Celestial Venerable Ling first…'

Just as he thought until here, a familiar voice came from the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge. "Cult Master! Old Cult Master!"

Qin Mu's heart stirred slightly, and he looked towards the source of the voice. He saw a youth with the head of a qilin walking out from the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge and running towards him in joy. It was the dragon qilin.

The dragon qilin sprinted over and saw Qin Mu's face turning darker. He couldn't help shivering. 'Crap, I added the word' old 'in front of the word' Cult Master ', making Cult Master unhappy…'

He continued to sprint over and revealed his true form. His two ears trembled, and a few strange creatures with the body of a qilin and the tail of a vermillion bird flew out from his ears. They chirped and flew around Qin Mu.

Qin Mu immediately threw his unhappiness to the back of his mind and raised his hand to support a small monster. The little monster hugged his finger and ground its teeth, causing sparks to fly between its teeth.

Qin Mu was astonished. "Fatty Dragon, this is the child of you and Yan'er? Yan'er has incubated for so many years, she's finally born!"

These little monsters had dragon scales on their claws, and the little monster in his hand used its tail to coil around his finger. Its claws hugged one of the fingers as it sized him up from head to toe. Its large black eyes were filled with curiosity.

On the back of another slightly bigger little monster sat a tiny Earth Count that looked very majestic. He nodded at Qin Mu and said, "Ma ha."

The dragon qilin smiled apologetically. "I just came back from the ancestral court, so my wife asked me to take care of the children. I had no choice but to bring them along. I plan to return to Eternal Peace to find Cult Master, and after meeting him, I'll bring the children back to the Beast World."

When Qin Mu saw their family, the burden in his heart vanished without a trace. He sighed ruefully and finally said, "Fatty Dragon has grown up."
