Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1590
His aura couldn't be said to be weak. Among the Nine Celestial Venerables of Dragon Han, Celestial Venerable Huo had opened his Celestial Being Divine Treasure and was ranked fourth.
His talent was extremely high, or else he wouldn't have been able to open up the Celestial Being Divine Treasure and leave his mark in the cultivation system of the divine treasures.
Celestial Being Divine Treasure was a divine treasure that connected heaven and earth. This divine treasure was connected to the Five Elements and Six Directions, and it had a bearing effect on the Life and Death Divine Treasure.
Eternal Peace's reform had improved the divine treasures and changed the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure that Celestial Venerable Yun had opened up, but it didn't change much about the Celestial Being Divine Treasure.
From this, one could see that Celestial Venerable Huo's aptitude was extraordinary.
Celestial Venerable Yun didn't seem to feel his terrifying Dao might at all. Celestial Venerable Huo's magic power was incomparably dense, much denser than Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body. However, Celestial Venerable Yun was still calm and indifferent. He even looked at Celestial Venerable Huo with pity and sympathy.
"Huo, are you planning to get rid of me?"
Celestial Venerable Yun said with a smile that wasn't a smile, "You won't hold back your tears after killing me this time, right?"
Celestial Venerable Huo said sinisterly, "In the past, I thought you were my Dao friend, so I shed tears for the sake of killing you. However, only now have I seen your true colors. You are just an ambitious little thief like Qin Ye and Qin Mu!"
He was overflowing with murderous intent, and his pupils under the mask revealed boundless killing intent. "Your danger is even greater than Qin Mu and Qin Ye! They are dumb, but you are smarter. You will bring our human race to eternal damnation and destroy the great situation that I have painstakingly created! I will never allow you to live!"
Celestial Venerable Yun laughed loudly, and the pity in his eyes became even more intense. "Huo, aren't you a little curious? How did you know I would definitely take this path? Who told you I would pass by here?"
Behind him, Village Chief was slightly stunned.
He was also puzzled about this matter.
Only five people knew that Celestial Venerable Yun was going to the ancestral court. Qin Mu, Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yun, Celestial Venerable Yue, and him.
However, Celestial Venerable Huo seemed to have known that Celestial Venerable Yun would go to the ancestral court. He even came to the place they had to pass to wait!
Celestial Venerable Yun naturally wouldn't betray him, and Qin Mu, Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yue, and Village Chief wouldn't betray him either!
How did Celestial Venerable Huo know that Celestial Venerable Yun would pass by here?
"You were able to come here to wait for me because that person purposely leaked the news to your reincarnation in Eternal Peace, letting you know that I will be going to the ancestral court and will pass by here."
Celestial Venerable Yun said indifferently, "His goal isn't to use you to get rid of me. He also knows that even if you kill my corporeal body, I won't die because of it. After all, I have already cultivated the perfect Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven, which is even more perfect than the Grand Emperor. His goal is to make me give up on you."
He revealed a mocking expression and said leisurely, "This person is the Celestial Venerable Mu that you look down on. How can you surpass him? He is the other me, the one who is in charge of this lifetime. The first reason he revealed this news to you was to let me see your true colors and completely give up on you. The second reason was to lure you over. He wanted to shatter your Dao heart and take the chance to get rid of you."
Celestial Venerable Huo's pupils contracted.
He was able to block Celestial Venerable Yun here because his reincarnation had unintentionally received the news!
When he received this news, he immediately came forward.
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled and said, "When Celestial Venerable Mu does things, he has my ruthlessness as well as the intention to kill. If it was me, I wouldn't give you the chance to see everyone betray you. I would use any means to get rid of you. However, he's different. He predicted that you would come, and he predicted that Celestial Venerables like Xu, Zu, and the rest had already headed to Youdu. He wanted to beat you until your Dao heart collapsed and despair grew in your heart."
Suddenly, the Dao fire in the canyon swirled and transformed into layers of Dao fire behind Celestial Venerable Huo's head.
Celestial Venerable Huo looked around vigilantly. If he was lured here, Qin Mu would definitely lay down layers of backup plans to kill him here!
Qin Mu would never let go of such a good opportunity!
At this moment, Celestial Venerable Huo saw a Dao Tree appear in the sky. That Dao Tree was rooted in the Ultimate Void's Great Overarching Heaven. A figure stood under the tree like a peerless sword. Even with heaven and earth as a sheath, his sharpness couldn't be concealed!
Founding Emperor Qin Ye!
Founding Emperor Qin Ye had always protected Celestial Venerable Yun!
Celestial Venerable Yun looked at Celestial Venerable Huo's every move, and he was even more disappointed. He shook his head and said, "Huo, you are no longer the Huo that dared to fight. When you saw Celestial Venerable Qin, you revealed a timid heart. Back then, you even dared to fight with Celestial Venerable Mu to the death. Even if you were beaten to a pulp, you still wanted to continue fighting with him. No wonder your Dao heart couldn't be as thorough as Celestial Venerable Qin's. No wonder you couldn't defeat Celestial Venerable Mu. You also couldn't defeat Celestial Venerable Hao."
He nudged Celestial Venerable Huo and said, "You are a human Celestial Venerable, so how could Celestial Venerable Hao be at ease with you? I met Celestial Venerable Hao before, and he was scared away by me. He knew that I had revived, so how could he not be wary of you?"
Celestial Venerable Huo was slightly stunned.
Celestial Venerable Yun said loudly, "Since Brother Hao is here, why are you still hiding? Now that you have achieved the Great Overarching Heaven, you are the strongest existence in the world. Is there a need for you to do such petty things?"
Before he could finish his sentence, another Great Overarching Heaven appeared. The Dao Tree was planted in the Great Overarching Heaven, and Dao flowers bloomed. Celestial Venerable Hao stood under the Dao Tree.
The two Great Overarching Heavens complemented each other.
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed and said, "The one who knows me better than Brother Yun."
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled. "You and I have fought for three hundred thousand years, so we understand each other very well."
"Yet you can't beat me."
Celestial Venerable Hao said leisurely, "Now that I'm here, I can fight against Qin Ye. As long as Celestial Venerable Huo makes a move, you'll definitely die. Even Qin Ye might have to die here today. Yun, you couldn't defeat me in your previous life, and it's still the same in this life."
"Is that so?"
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled and said, "I can't beat you, but Celestial Venerable Mu won't. Although Celestial Venerable Mu isn't as ruthless as me, he's more meticulous than me. How did you know that only Founding Emperor came?"
Celestial Venerable Hao was astonished. He stood in the Great Overarching Heaven Net and looked down. Suddenly, he swept Celestial Venerable Huo up with his sleeves and left with Celestial Venerable Huo. Soon, they vanished without a trace.
"He found out."
Celestial Venerable Yue walked out from the depths of the space and said with frustration, "It seems like Founding Emperor was right. My medium void is no longer perfect. Celestial Venerable Hao can also see through my paths, skills, and divine arts!"
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled. "If you can comprehend the Dao of Space to the extreme, the Life Dao Tree, the Dao Flower, and the Dao Fruit, Celestial Venerable Hao won't be able to see through you."
Celestial Venerable Yue came to his side and said, "Sister Ling told me that the path of the Dao Realm and the path of using force to achieve the Dao aren't the orthodox path. There's no need to cultivate the path of the Dao Realm, one can also achieve the Dao. When she finishes researching it, she can impart it to me…"
Celestial Venerable Yun's face sank, and he shook his head. "You will listen to her? Ling is naturally incomparably smart, but in order to achieve her goal, she can endure a million years of loneliness and research unchanging divine arts by herself. This time, when she studies the orthodox path, I don't know how many tens of thousands of years will pass! You can wait, but humans can't."
Celestial Venerable Yue recalled Celestial Venerable Ling's research on the unchanging divine art and came to a realization. She gave up on this idea and smiled. "In that case, I will wholeheartedly comprehend the Dao Realm."
All along, she had followed Celestial Venerable Yun and assisted him. Later on, she followed Celestial Venerable Ling and assisted Celestial Venerable Ling. She was always a little sister who listened to the two of them, but she didn't have many opinions.
Celestial Venerable Yun bowed and thanked Founding Emperor.
Founding Emperor returned the greeting and said, "Celestial Venerable Mu invited me to stay in the ancestral court for a few months to protect you until you can use the power of your corporeal body."
Celestial Venerable Yun came to a realization. He clapped his hands and said with a smile, "So that's how it is! I know why he did this. He wanted to use you to obstruct Celestial Venerable Hao while he took the chance to kill Earth Count. Since you are in the ancestral court, Celestial Venerable Hao has to stay in the celestial heavens to prevent you from razing the celestial heavens."
"Kill Earth Count?"
Founding Emperor revealed a look of astonishment and nodded. "It's indeed his style. However, with his power, can he kill Earth Count while dealing with Celestial Venerable Ling and Ancestral God King?"
He left the Great Overarching Heavenly Sword Dao and came to Celestial Venerable Yun's side. Village Chief faced the three Celestial Venerables at the same time and instantly felt some pressure. He thought about it and said, "Do you know how Celestial Venerable Mu was chased by the hen dragons when he was young?"
Under the protection of the two Celestial Venerables and Village Chief, Celestial Venerable Yun continued to walk towards the Black Wood Holy Land. When he saw the World Tree in the Hundred Thousand Holy Mountains from afar, his heart couldn't help but tremble. 'This tree is even bigger than the Primordial Tree! However, this tree is still a sapling that has yet to grow. If it did, how big would it be?'
They were about to enter the Hundred Thousand Holy Mountains when Celestial Venerable Yun was slightly stunned. He saw a woman standing quietly in front of the Holy Land, seemingly waiting for them.
Celestial Venerable Yue's heart jumped, and she hurriedly said, "I'll go take a look at the sacred ground first!" After she said that, she vanished without a trace.
Founding Emperor frowned and also walked into the sacred ground. "Dao Friend Su, let's have a spar."
Village Chief's spirit was roused, and he hurriedly followed him.
Celestial Venerable Yun walked forward and came to the woman's side.
Lang Wo turned around, her gaze clear and flawless. Celestial Venerable Yun was slightly dazzled, but he quickly composed himself.
The little girl who had followed him back then had already grown up. Her beauty couldn't be found in this world, but there was no emotion in her gaze.
As her technique circulated, her emotions were suppressed deep in her heart, and it was hard for her to release them.
Celestial Venerable Yun bowed and said, "Lady Lang Wo…"
Lang Wo turned to leave.
Celestial Venerable Yun was slightly stunned as he watched her leave.
"I still can't get over it."
Lang Wo's consciousness came from afar. "After I saw you, the emotions of the Great Old Ones that I suppressed rose again, reminding me of the deaths of millions of my people. Uncle Yun, I won't meet you again."
Celestial Venerable Yun was disappointed and frustrated as he walked into the sacred grounds of Black Mountain.
He came to the bottom of the World Tree, and Village Chief led him to see Lan Yutian. When Celestial Venerable Yun saw the youth comprehending Dao under the World Tree, he couldn't help but be stunned. He stood there for a long time without moving.
Lan Yutian raised his head and was slightly astonished when he saw him. He smiled and said, "I seem to have seen you before. Do we know each other in the past? Grandpa Village Chief said to let you be my disciple and cultivate with me for a period of time."
"Brother!" Celestial Venerable Yun walked forward and bowed to the ground, tears dripping onto the ground.
At the same time, the World Crossing Gold Ship sailed into Youdu and came to Benevolent Saintly King Equal to Heaven in the long horn of Earth Count.
Before he could stop, a violent and cold aura suddenly came from Benevolent Saintly King Equal to Heaven. With a loud boom, Celestial Venerable You's peerless primordial spirit broke through the manor and reached out to grab Qin Mu on the golden ship!
"Celestial Venerable You, it's me, don't make a move!" Qin Mu hurriedly shouted.
Celestial Venerable You's palm stopped on the golden ship, and his gaze landed on him. He said coldly, "I can feel the killing intent towards Earth Count from you!"
"How is this possible?"
A drop of cold sweat hung on Qin Mu's forehead, and he said in astonishment, "Why would I have the intention to kill Earth Count? You must have sensed wrongly. Look, when I came here, the Great Dao of Youdu didn't touch me at all. This means that the Great Dao of Youdu has already let go of our past enmity and knows that I'm here to help Earth Count transcend the tribulation! Quickly take back your hand!"
Celestial Venerable You revealed a suspicious look and sensed carefully. He could still feel the killing intent towards Earth Count from Qin Mu.
He had immersed himself in the Great Dao of Youdu, and his Dao Realm was profound. He wasn't inferior to Celestial Venerable Xu, Ah Chou, and Earth Count. He was even above them, so he was extremely sensitive.
'However, how could Celestial Venerable Mu have the intention to kill Earth Count? I must have sensed wrongly.'
Celestial Venerable You pulled back his primordial spirit, and Qin Mu wiped away the cold sweat on his forehead. He said with a smile, "Celestial Venerable You, I brought you an old friend. I brought Celestial Venerable Ling over!"
Celestial Venerable You's heart trembled violently, and he hurriedly looked at the ship. Qin Mu said, "You, Earth Count's Life and Death Book is still with you, right?"
Celestial Venerable You couldn't help but nod.
Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief and laughed loudly as he carried him into the manor. "Ling, come along!"
Celestial Venerable Ling came to his side, and her consciousness rippled. "Have you gotten the Life and Death Book?"
Qin Mu nodded his head. "I've already got it. Now there's only one problem left. How many steps do I need to take to kill Earth Count? How do I plan?"
Celestial Venerable Ling's consciousness transmitted, "Walk to Earth Count's side and kill him."
