Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1619
On the World Crossing Gold Ship, Qin Mu, Qin Fengqing, and Tai Shi said in unison.
The battle power that Celestial Venerable Huo had displayed was simply too strong. Space swirled around his palm, and Celestial Venerable Xu almost couldn't stabilize himself.
Celestial Venerable Xu, who was also one of the ten Celestial Venerables, felt that she wasn't inferior to Celestial Venerable Huo. Especially after Earth Count died, she had refined the Great Dao of Youdu, and her cultivation had improved by leaps and bounds. She thought highly of herself.
Even though she hadn't obtained all of the Dao of Youdu and the complete corporeal body of Earth Count, the benefits she had received in Youdu were much greater than what Celestial Venerable Huo had received in Southern Heaven.
It was impossible for South Heaven Dao and Fire Ancestral Land to be on par with Youdu.
After receiving such great benefits, she still felt the difference between her and Celestial Venerable Huo.
This difference was equivalent to the difference between 35 celestial palaces and 36 celestial palaces.
Just one celestial palace was worlds apart.
Celestial Venerable Huo's soul wasn't his weakness, and it could only be considered his weakness. Furthermore, this weakness was deliberately created by him. His Dao fire could refine the soul, and it could also refine his own soul to become incomparably powerful.
Ever since the Dragon Han Era, he had used Dao fire to continuously refine his soul. After obtaining the South Heavenly Dao Fire Ancestor's land, he used it to cultivate his soul, making it stronger than ever.
However, his soul wanted to be refined to a level that could match Celestial Venerable You.
Hundred Refinements Vajra. His corporeal body, vital qi, divine treasures, celestial palaces, runes, dao patterns, chains, divine arts, and domains were all tempered to the extreme by the Dao fire, reaching the extent of being indestructible.
However, his soul was still missing a crucial part, and that was the devil fire of Youdu.
From the beginning to the end, Celestial Venerable Huo knew that he had this weakness, but it could only be considered a weakness, not a weakness.
He couldn't get the devil fire from Celestial Venerable You. Celestial Venerable You, this autistic man, had long seen through his true colors, so he could only get it from the battle of killing Earth Count or from Celestial Venerable Xu and Son of Youdu.
Back when Qin Mu was the Son of Youdu, Celestial Venerable Huo had tried to rope him in, hoping that he could join his camp.
When this expectation was shattered, Qin Mu became the person who opposed him the most. He had no choice but to try to rope Celestial Venerable Xu in. If Celestial Venerable Xu married him, he could borrow Celestial Venerable Xu's devil fire to cultivate his soul.
However, Celestial Venerable Xu had sought help from Heavenly Teacher Meng Yungui. Meng Yungui's words shattered his fantasy of Celestial Venerable Xu.
During the battle of Youdu, Qin Mu struck first to gain the upper hand. He killed Earth Count first and let Qin Fengqing absorb the Dao of Youdu to inherit Earth Count's legacy. Celestial Venerable Xu seized the Dao of Youdu and fought with Qin Fengqing, Heaven Duke, and the rest. As for Celestial Venerable Huo, he was held back by Celestial Venerable Yue and Lang Lang, so he didn't have a chance.
He only had one chance left, and that was to let Celestial Venerable Xu come and kill him. How to make Celestial Venerable Xu come and kill him became the final problem. However, the chance came silently, and God Emperor Lang Xuan's reincarnation ran to Southern Heaven, giving him the capital to ally with Grand Primordium.
He had decisively submitted to Grand Primordium and had fallen out with Emperor Hao Tian after the coronation. Emperor Hao Tian couldn't tolerate his betrayal and would definitely kill him. However, Emperor Hao Tian had to be wary of Grand Primordium and Tai Chi, so the only people that Emperor Hao Tian could use were Celestial Venerable Xu and Ancestral God King.
And a long time ago, he had taken the initiative to reveal that his technique couldn't cultivate to the 'weakness' of the soul, so Celestial Venerable Xu would definitely use devil fire to burn his soul in an attempt to kill him in one strike.
He had started to lay out his plans from the High Emperor Era until today. After three to four hundred thousand years, he finally succeeded and got what he wanted!
Celestial Venerable Huo felt the devil fire tempering his soul and raising it. He was delighted.
What was a moment of glory?
So what if he betrayed his family and friends?
So what if they enslaved the humans of Southern Heaven and used the flesh and blood of countless humans to please the half-gods?
The humans of Southern Heaven had no intention of resisting after being enslaved, so what was that?
A general succeeds in ten thousand deaths!
As long as he, Celestial Venerable Huo, became the strongest existence in the world, the emperor of this universe, and an invincible existence, he could rewrite the history books and leave behind his most brilliant side in the history of the civil officials.
As long as he killed all the insiders, there would be no stain on his reputation!
Ever since Celestial Venerable Yu had died in the Slow Winding Pavilion a million years ago, he had understood a principle. If he wanted to live, he could only become strong and control the strongest power!
And before he became a power, before he grasped the strongest power, he could only rely on it, a dog that could only rely on it.
People always treated dogs as their best friends, but dogs never thought so!
When a dog had more power than its owner, the situation would be reversed.
Celestial Venerable Xu fought back continuously under his palm. Her divine arts, paths, and skills had reached perfection, and she had received Earth Count's Youdu Dao. This allowed her comprehension of the devil path to reach an unprecedented height, and there were as many as thirty-five celestial palaces.
If it was dozens of years ago, such a cultivation could be said to be the top existence among the ten Celestial Venerables!
However, that was decades ago.
After Celestial Venerable Huo obtained her Dao fire, her magic power, consciousness, corporeal body, spirit, soul, runes, Dao markings, Dao chains, domains, qi, blood, divine treasures, and celestial palaces no longer had any weaknesses. They were indestructible.
Twelve achievements, all cultivated to the extreme. In the whole world, this was the first time someone could achieve this.
His palm struck down and covered the sky and earth. Celestial Venerable Xu looked up from his palm as if he was looking at the burning sky.
Any of her attacks could only shake Celestial Venerable Huo's five fingers, but Celestial Venerable Huo's five fingers could break her divine art!
Celestial Venerable Xu attacked frantically, and her corporeal body expanded continuously. However, the space distorted under the power of the Dao fire. No matter how much she changed, she couldn't escape Celestial Venerable Huo's control.
When Celestial Venerable Huo's palm landed, it was like a burning sky screen, giving her no way to escape. Her celestial palace was also burning!
It was the most intense fire, like desire that could devour everything.
Suddenly, in the sky above South Heaven, the Xuandu world appeared. Ancestral God King controlled the incomparably huge body of Heaven Duke and stretched out half of his body to strike Celestial Venerable Huo's head.
"People of South Heaven, listen up. Celestial Venerable Huo has rebelled and killed Celestial Venerable Yin and Celestial Venerable Qing Long!"
Ancestral God King was awe-inspiring as he shouted loudly, "Celestial Venerable Huo's crime is unforgivable. His Majesty, Emperor Hao Tian, has already given the order to punish the fire thieves! All of the people of South Heaven kneel down, but those who stand up are the accomplices of the fire thieves!"
The entire South Heaven was in an uproar.
Countless half-gods and humans resided in the heavens of South Heaven. There were also gods among the half-gods and the gods of the human race. They built god cities, and they were the army of gods and devils that guarded South Heaven.
At that moment, even the great army of gods and devils of Southern Heaven couldn't help kneeling down when they heard Ancestral God King's command. No one stood up.
In Celestial Venerable South Heaven's celestial palace, some of Celestial Venerable Huo's disciples were cleaning Celestial Venerable Huo's statue, while others were busy with other matters. When they heard this, their bodies trembled violently, and they looked at Yan Yazi in confusion.
Yan Yazi was Celestial Venerable Huo's disciple. When he heard Ancestral God King's words, his mind was in a mess, and he was at a loss.
"Big Senior Brother, what should we do?" the numerous disciples of Celestial Venerable Huo asked.
Yan Yazi suppressed his disordered mind and thought for a moment. He then shouted, "The saint has a rule: the ruler is the subject, the father is the subject, and the husband is the woman! Even though Celestial Venerable Huo is our master, he isn't greater than the ruler or the father! Kneel down, all of you!"
In Celestial Venerable Huo's celestial palace, numerous disciples hesitated. Yan Yazi had already knelt down and buried his head. When the other disciples saw this, they all knelt down. Even though some of them wanted to resist, they dispelled all thoughts of resisting when they saw this scene.
East Deity Qing Long, who was far away, was stunned. He was bewildered. 'I'm clearly still alive, so why did Ancestral God King say that I was killed by Celestial Venerable Huo? F*ck, it seems like it was a mistake to submit to Celestial Emperor Hao…'
Ancestral God King landed a blow on Celestial Venerable Huo's head and laughed. "Huo, you didn't expect this day to come, did you? The disciples you painstakingly taught won't help you at all. They won't be of any use. The Southern Heaven that you painstakingly managed will become the best slave for the celestial heavens!"
Celestial Venerable Huo's other palm met Heaven Duke's hand, and he sneered. "Ancestral God King, you want to spoil my Dao heart, you're far from it! If I win, who will write history in the future? Isn't it all decided by me?"
Ancestral God King controlled Heaven Duke's corporeal body, and it could be said that he had the strongest magic power and the strongest corporeal body. However, when facing an existence like Celestial Venerable Huo who had no weakness, even he felt an incomparable impact!
He didn't gain any advantage with this strike!
"Even if all the humans in the Southern Heaven are wiped out, even if all the humans in the thousands of worlds are wiped out, as long as I'm still alive, the humans will never be wiped out!"
Celestial Venerable Huo's qi and blood fluctuated, but he soon stabilized himself. He laughed loudly and ruthlessly attacked the two of them, his voice shaking non-stop. "I'm a human! I'm a supreme being! Back then, Celestial Venerable Yu didn't ask for much. He just wanted the human race to be on equal footing with the other races, but he couldn't do that!"
Celestial Venerable Xu took advantage of the moment when his qi and blood fluctuated to pull out the long horn on his head and ruthlessly stabbed it into Celestial Venerable Huo's palm.
The long horn pierced through Celestial Venerable Huo's palm and shot out from the back of his hand towards the heart of his brows.
Celestial Venerable Huo's eyes spewed out two trails of fire, and his gaze was like a torch that shone on the long horn that was flying over. This long horn was the treasure of a Celestial Venerable refined by Celestial Venerable Xu, and it instantly melted under his gaze!
Celestial Venerable Huo punched Celestial Venerable Xu's body. Celestial Venerable Xu grunted and spat out a mouthful of blood. Her devil blood turned into flames in the starry sky, burning furiously.
"However, as long as I win, even if I'm the only one, the human race will be the most respected race in the world!"
A celestial heavens appeared behind Celestial Venerable Huo's head, and his primordial spirit guarded it. He stretched out his hand and grabbed Heaven Duke's corporeal body, pulling Ancestral God King along with Heaven Duke's corporeal body. He actually wanted to pull him out of Xuandu, and he sneered. "What Celestial Venerable Yu can't do will be done by me!"
Ancestral God King clashed head-on with him. The power of the Heavenly Dao was pushed to the extreme, and he used the heavenly fire to resist the Dao fire.
Celestial Venerable Huo executed his magic power, and the Dao flames behind his head were like wheels that twisted Xuandu. Even Heaven Duke's corporeal body was distorted, and his body became long and slender. It seemed like it was going to become a wheel of flames behind his head!
It was rare to see someone as powerful as him.
And at this moment, at the borders of the Southern Heaven, Celestial Emperor Hao walked through the starry sky. A great Allheaven appeared, its branches dancing.
He would personally come to challenge Celestial Venerable Huo.
The moment he stepped into Southern Heaven, another Great Firmament appeared in the void in front of him. It was a Great Firmament, and two ancient gods of taiji surrounded Tai Chu, blocking his path.
