Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1610
Not long later, Qin Mu's watch appeared in Celestial Venerable Hao's study.
Celestial Venerable Hao unfolded the watch and read it carefully. He couldn't help but laugh out loud, unable to hide his delight.
The more he read, the happier he felt. He couldn't help but laugh when he saw all kinds of strange thoughts in Qin Mu's words. He could see Qin Mu's unwillingness, fear, despair, helplessness, as well as his desire for power and his unwillingness to leave his position.
'It's just a short demarcation of two thousand words, yet Celestial Venerable Mu is able to analyze his heart so clearly. His literary talent is truly remarkable, not inferior to that of a literary hero!'
Celestial Venerable Hao smiled at the minister. "Read it to me after I'm done."
The chancellor acknowledged.
Celestial Venerable Hao continued to look, and he couldn't help but laugh heartily. He shouted, "Bring me wine! Read Celestial Venerable Mu's demotion, how can there be no wine to liven things up?"
Soon, a god's servant presented him with fine wine. Celestial Venerable Hao drank while admiring the meter. He exclaimed in admiration, "Your literary talent is soaring, your literary talent is soaring. You should really print hundreds of thousands of copies and send them to all the worlds in the heavens for all the gods and devils to read… F*cking Celestial Venerable Mu!"
He was suddenly furious, and the wine cup in his hand exploded, spilling wine all over the floor.
Celestial Venerable Hao's face was full of anger as he stared at the line of words. It was indeed the word "already slept" written by Qin Mu.
In the imperial study, no one knew why he was angry. They looked at each other and didn't dare to make a sound.
"Damn it, Celestial Venerable Mu, what a waste of a heavenly treasure and defiling a goddess. His crime is unforgivable! This slut still dares to show off to me, I'm going to kill her!"
Celestial Venerable Hao couldn't suppress his anger, and he smashed the desk into pieces. He stood up and said angrily, "Let's not kill him first! Drag his envoy here, I want to kill his head to vent my anger!"
The chancellor hurriedly said, "Your Majesty, when the two countries are fighting, the envoys aren't killed. Furthermore, Celestial Venerable Mu is here to surrender. If Your Majesty kills the envoys, how would Celestial Venerable Mu dare to surrender?"
Celestial Venerable Hao was furious. "If I don't kill him, I won't be able to vent my anger!"
The chancellor hesitated. "Your Majesty, a little impatience will spoil great plans…"
Celestial Venerable Hao glared at him. "So what if I killed an envoy? Celestial Venerable Mu angered me, so I'll let Celestial Venerable Xu wipe out half of the population of Eternal Peace first! Go, kidnap that envoy for me!"
The chancellor didn't dare to say another word and could only leave in a hurry.
At that moment, Yu Chenzi was in Bai Yujing's Jasper Flower Celestial Palace. Bai Yujing knew he was an envoy of Eternal Peace, so she rejected him to avoid arousing suspicion.
Yu Chen'zi pulled up his robe and knelt outside Jasper Flower Palace with a thump, attracting the attention of the gods passing by.
Bai Yujing was afraid of blowing things up, so she hurriedly ordered people to invite him in. She grumbled, "Envoy of Eternal Peace, aren't you being too unreasonable? I'm a human, and you are kneeling in front of my door. If this gets out, people will think I'm colluding with your Eternal Peace! Did Celestial Venerable Mu call you here? This old thief always wants to frame me for being unjust!"
Yu Chen'zi got up from his seat and knelt down again. He cried out, "White Heaven Master, please save the human race!" After he said that, he kowtowed continuously.
Bai Yujing hurriedly helped him up. Yu Chenzi knelt on the ground and didn't want to get up. He held Qin Mu's jade pendant with both hands and choked on his tears. "For the sake of the human race, Celestial Venerable Mu's hair turned white overnight. He felt that no human could survive in this world and cried until he fainted. He only woke up six to seven days later. He said that only Heavenly Teacher could save the human race from extinction."
Bai Yujing had a complicated expression. She didn't take the jade pendant and said, "If Celestial Venerable Mu had surrendered, Celestial Emperor Hao wouldn't have had to destroy the human race. I'm afraid Celestial Venerable Mu still has the desire to make a comeback, or even fight to the death. That's why he thinks I can help him win."
She also had the same jade pendant that Qin Mu had forged to save her.
Qin Mu had refined a second jade pendant like this, and it was obvious he wanted her to repay him.
However, she didn't dare to accept this jade pendant, nor did she want to.
Yu Chen'zi's heart trembled slightly, and he praised this woman for her intelligence.
"Heavenly Teacher Bai, Celestial Venerable Mu is indeed at the end of his rope. There's no way out."
Yu Chen'zi wiped away his tears and said, "As a human, does Heavenly Teacher really want to see the extinction of the human race? Even if Celestial Venerable Mu surrenders, the human race is still fish meat, waiting to be slaughtered!"
Bai Yujing sighed and said, "What do you want me to do? I'm a heavenly master of the celestial heavens. I won't turn my heart to the human race just because I'm a human. However, if it's harmless, I can help you, but you can't ask for too much."
Yu Chen'zi's spirit was greatly roused. "Celestial Venerable Mu doesn't dare to go overboard. I only ask Heavenly Teacher to meet Heavenly Teacher Meng Yungui."
Bai Yujing's gaze landed on his face, but she didn't say anything. After a moment, she said, "Senior Brother Meng Yungui is also a human heavenly master. Even though he's the second heavenly master, Shang Pinying isn't his match. It's more than enough for him to be the first heavenly master, but how can a human be the first heavenly master of the celestial heavens? That's why Shang Pinying is still the first heavenly master."
She walked two steps around Yu Chenzi, who was kneeling on the ground, and stopped. "Celestial Venerable Mu's thoughts might be able to fool Shang Pinying, but it can't fool Meng Yungui. Meng Yungui cares more about power and benefits, cherishes his life more, and is also more tactful. You can't hide your thoughts from him."
Yu Chen'zi's heart trembled, and he said, "Celestial Venerable Mu has no other request. I only hope that Heavenly Teacher Bai can meet Heavenly Teacher Meng so that when he raises his butcher's knife to his compatriots, he can raise it up high so that some of the humans can survive."
Bai Yujing closed her eyes and sighed faintly. She then opened her eyes and stretched out her hand to receive the jade pendant. "Meng Yunlui will listen to my opinion. I will meet him, so you can be at ease."
Yu Chenzi kowtowed again, and Bai Yujing was flustered. She waved her hand and said, "Go, go! Don't come to my Jasper Flower Celestial Palace again."
Yu Chen'zi rose and took his leave.
Before he could walk out of the Jasper Flower Palace, the chancellor led numerous heavenly soldiers and generals into the palace. The entire palace was in an uproar.
"Tie him up!" High Chancellor Ba waved his hand and shouted.
Heavenly troops and generals swarmed forward and bound Yu Chen'zi tightly without any explanation.
Bai Yujing hurriedly walked out and frowned. She said politely, "High Chancellor, the envoy sent by Celestial Venerable Mu is also my nephew. He is here to ask for surrender. What has he done? Why is he being punished?"
The chancellor said, "There's something wrong with the watch he sent over. His Majesty flew into a rage when he saw it and wanted to kill him personally. Originally, I didn't dare to barge into Heavenly Teacher's manor, but since His Majesty gave the order, I had no choice but to barge in. Heavenly Teacher, please give me some face."
Yu Chen'zi said, "Big aunt, this is most likely a misunderstanding. Big aunt doesn't have to worry about me, I can resolve the misunderstanding by explaining to His Majesty."
Bai Yujing went forward and tidied his clothes. "Don't worry, I will think of a way to protect your life."
Yu Chen'zi let out a sigh of relief. He knew she wasn't talking about his life, but the lives of humans.
In the imperial study, Yu Chen'zi was escorted forward. Before the divine general could kick him, he had already taken the initiative to kneel down.
Celestial Venerable Hao was holding the God Advent List and looked at it carefully. He said with a smile, "In the God Advent List, Celestial Venerable Mu also spent some effort to list out all of Eternal Peace's wealth. He's really thoughtful."
He closed the stopwatch and his face fell.
Yu Chenzi shuddered at the right time. Celestial Venerable Hao was clearly in a much better mood than before. However, when he saw him, he couldn't help but recall the unhappy words on the lower form. He said indifferently, "Celestial Venerable Mu sent you here, so you must be a sharp-tongued person. I hate sharp-tongued people the most…"
"Your Majesty, Old Crook Mu is using me to kill!"
Yu Chen'zi hurriedly shouted, "Your Majesty, don't fall for Old Crook Mu's trick!"
Celestial Venerable Hao gave an 'oh' and smiled. "You mean Celestial Venerable Mu wants to borrow my hands to kill you? What do you have? Why didn't he just get rid of you and instead borrowed my hands to get rid of you?"
Yu Chenzi stiffened his neck and said, "Thief Mu is a pervert. I repeatedly advised him, but he didn't like me. However, I'm the disciple of Dao Ancestor, so he can't kill me for no reason. Therefore, he asked me to surrender and threw me out to die! I know everything about Eternal Peace. He's playing tricks on His Majesty! He secretly left behind a lot of property. After he surrendered, he brought Divine King Lang Wo, Emperor Yanxiu, and the other beauties to lead a happy life!"
Celestial Venerable Hao couldn't help but laugh. He shook his head and said, "You're measuring the heart of a gentleman with your own petty thoughts. Celestial Venerable Mu, to be able to fight with me for so many years, you aren't that kind of scoundrel."
Yu Chen'zi said, "Your Majesty, after he is ready to surrender, he will bring the beauties and treasures back to Surging River to herd the cows!"
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed until he couldn't straighten his back. "The majestic Celestial Venerable Mu is actually a cowherd?"
The minister at the side hurriedly said, "Your Majesty, this Celestial Venerable Mu was indeed a cowherd back then. I have already asked around and found out that Celestial Venerable Mu used to herd cows in the Surging River. The word 'Mu' came from here. Emperor Yanxiu even frequently called him a cowherd to show her affection. I have spies in Eternal Peace saying that Emperor Yanxiu is looking for her old father and intends to abdicate. She probably wants to herd cows with him…"
"There's actually such a thing?"
Celestial Venerable Hao was astonished. "My mortal enemy is actually such a person?"
Yu Chenzi said, "Your Majesty, Old Crook Mu's Dao heart collapsed when he returned from Youdu. He kowtowed again, begging for heaven and earth to not respond to him every day. He was prepared to come and offer his humble apology, looking utterly disgraceful. It was Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yue, and the rest who dragged him back forcefully. However, Old Crook Mu was bent on surrendering, so he wrote a demotion form. At that time, I was right beside him. Because this old Crook had lost to Your Majesty's wise and mighty hands, new and old hatred surged into my heart, making me an envoy to take my life!"
Celestial Venerable Hao's interest was piqued, and he said, "You were beside me when I wrote the demo? Tell me in detail!"
Thus, Yu Chen'zi described the state of mind Qin Mu had when he wrote the demo, and he naturally pinched off the part where Qin Mu was brewing his emotions.
When he gestured, it was as if he possessed both form and spirit. He imitated Qin Mu's appearance when he was writing the demo. Celestial Venerable Hao laughed loudly.
Yu Chen'zi said, "Words are like the person. Your Majesty can find experts proficient in calligraphy and painting to study the lower form, and you will know if I'm lying to Your Majesty."
Celestial Venerable Hao was also careful as he glanced at the chancellor.
The chancellor hurriedly said, "Star Sovereign Wen Chang has a group of gods under him who are proficient in painting and calligraphy. They can be invited to observe Celestial Venerable Mu's writing."
Celestial Venerable Hao waved his hand, and the chancellor hurriedly left.
Celestial Venerable Hao looked at Yu Chenzi, who was kneeling below. "Rise. If what you said is true, I'll spare your life."
Yu Chen'zi kowtowed repeatedly and got up.
Not long later, Star Sovereign Wen Chang led his proud students over and paid respects to Celestial Venerable Hao. He invited them to lower their watches and study them in detail. Indeed, the emotions in every word was interpreted by these great experts in the path of painting and calligraphy. It wasn't much different from what Yu Chenzi had said.
Celestial Venerable Hao said with a smile, "Human talents, my son Qin Ye, my son Qin Mu. My son has already died in my hands, and my son's Dao heart has also been destroyed, turning back into a cowherd. I can rest easy now!"
"Your Majesty, wait!"
Suddenly, a voice came from outside the imperial study. Before the person arrived, the voice came first. "If Your Majesty trusts me, you can drag out this envoy of Eternal Peace and execute him. Immediately send troops to suppress Eternal Peace!"
