Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1745
Qin Mu directly rejected Lang Wo and said to the woman, "This trip is extremely dangerous. The other party has five people who have achieved the Dao and are powerful. There are also existences like Celestial Venerable Hao and Hall Master Joyful. Celestial Venerable Hao also has a zither string from Fourth Young Master. It's fine if we don't fall out, but if we do, I can't protect you."
Lang Wo's expression dimmed.
When Emperor Yanfeng saw Lang Wo's expression, he became even more certain. "The masters of creation wanted to steal the wall of my Ling Family! Imperial Preceptor was bribed by her! However, my son-in-law is a good man and didn't fall for her seduction!"
Lang Wo had always been cold and aloof. Now that she was acting like a little girl, she definitely had a motive. An experienced person like Emperor Yanfeng naturally saw it clearly.
Although Lang Wo was a divine king of the masters of creation and was experienced and knowledgeable, she was still clueless when it came to relationships. It was easy for her to leave traces when she did things.
Qin Mu was oblivious to it as he continued to say, "This time, Celestial Venerable Yue will follow me. The fourth young master is extremely terrifying. Hall Master Huan Xi seems to be on the same path as Celestial Venerable Yue. With Celestial Venerable Yue around, the danger of this trip won't be too great."
Celestial Venerable Yue nodded, and Emperor Yanfeng became nervous again. He said to Jiang Baigui, "Imperial Preceptor, do you think Celestial Venerable Yue wants to pry open the wall of my Ling Family?"
Jiang Baigui said indifferently, "Your Majesty, in the past, someone had lost an ax and suspected that the neighbor had stolen it. No matter how he observed, he felt that the neighbor was the one who had stolen the ax. Later, he found an ax in his own house and looked at the neighbor again. No matter how he looked at it, he didn't look like the person who had stolen the ax."
Emperor Yanfeng laughed and turned his face away with a grim expression. "Imperial Preceptor was indeed bribed!"
Celestial Venerable Yue went to pack her luggage.
Qin Mu asked Celestial Venerable You, "You, can you find traces of Xing An?"
Celestial Venerable You executed the Life and Death Book and entered Youdu. The Life and Death Book shone on the boundless world, and after a long time, Celestial Venerable You appeared again. He shook his head and said, "There are no traces of Xing An in all the worlds. Only the ancestral court is sealed by the prehistoric stowaways, so we can't enter to check."
Qin Mu was astonished and looked at the ancestral court. "Could Xing An have gone there?"
Celestial Venerable Yue hurried over, tied up her hair, and changed into a set of capable clothes. She carried her guqin on her back and asked, "That Hall Master of Joy, did she also cultivate the Supreme Void?"
Qin Mu boarded the World Crossing Gold Ship with her and chased Lan Yutian down. The dragon qilin also wanted to come up, but he was also chased down by Qin Mu. He said, "I'm not too sure about her technique and divine arts, but when she was dealing with my divine arts, she executed the path of space. I tried to use consciousness divine arts to make her enter the illusion, but it was also broken by her. She must have cultivated other paths and skills."
Celestial Venerable Yue thought about it. Consciousness divine arts were indeed a counter to the Dao of space. Back then, in order to deal with her, the ten Celestial Venerables had made God Emperor Lang Xuan, who was proficient in the Dao of consciousness, attack first.
Qin Mu had used consciousness divine arts to deal with Hall Master Joyful. It could be said that he had targeted his weakness, yet it was broken by the other party. This meant that Hall Master Joyful didn't just have the Dao of Space.
"The hall masters of Miluo Palace, everyone has their own secrets. Even though Hall Master Joyful is severely injured by Shang Jun, we still can't underestimate him."
Qin Mu reminded him again, "Your goal is the string of the fourth young master's zither, not her. If you can avoid conflict with her, it's best to avoid it. Even though you have already achieved the path, you haven't imprinted the void yet, so you are temporarily not her opponent."
Celestial Venerable Yue nodded solemnly.
Ever since Lan Yutian had imparted the Dao, the path she had taken was no longer the path of Dao attainment in the past. Instead, she planned to use Lan Yutian's Ancestral Court Dao Realm system to imprint thirty-six voids in her universe.
Even though her cultivation in the Dao Realm had already reached it, the cultivation system of the Ancestral Court had yet to be completed, and there were still some deficiencies in her cultivation. Only by cultivating the Ancestral Court's cultivation system would her cultivation become incomparably dense and become a true practitioner of the Dao. Only then would she have the power to fight Hall Master Joyful.
The World Crossing Golden Ship slowly sailed towards the celestial heavens above the ancestral court. The scale of the celestial heavens was getting larger, and there were many exotic buildings. They should be the characteristics of the civilization of the previous universe.
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue looked from afar, and they saw that the runes on the buildings were completely different from the runes of today. However, Great Dao divine arts all had the same goal. If one carefully pondered over it, they would be able to understand the logic of the Great Dao being impregnable.
After cultivating to the level of Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue and seeing all kinds of inconceivable Dao techniques, they all had a feeling of seeing through the surface and seeing the essence. There were many secrets to speak of.
Qin Mu looked in the direction of Emperor Hao Tian and saw the string of the zither from the past universe again. His expression was slightly grave.
The power of this string was enough to destroy someone like Founding Emperor Qin Ye who had achieved the Dao. If Emperor Hao Tian brought this string to the celestial heavens, the power of life and death would probably fall into his hands!
Facing the danger of death, these stowaways would probably submit to the Miluo Palace!
"Yue, can you see that string?" Qin Mu asked.
Celestial Venerable Yue looked around and could only see Celestial Emperor Hao walking towards the celestial heavens. However, she couldn't see the string. She shook her head and said, "I can't see it."
Qin Mu's heart sank slightly. If Celestial Venerable Yue couldn't see it, the others shouldn't be able to either.
He was probably the only one who could see that string!
The marvels of the four young masters of Miluo Palace could be seen from this!
Qin Mu composed himself and looked in another direction. He saw Celestial Empress leading the remnants of the celestial heavens' army to a remote area of the ancestral court.
Emperor Hao didn't have many troops left, and among them, only Celestial Empress was left.
"When you weren't around, Celestial Empress had sent people to discuss surrendering."
Celestial Venerable Yue and Qin Mu stood side by side at the bow of the ship. Celestial Venerable Yue adjusted the guqin on her back and said to Qin Mu, "Celestial Empress has the intention to surrender. She sent an envoy to discuss with Emperor Yanfeng, and Jiang Baigui barged in and directly refused to negotiate. Celestial Empress then gave up."
"Junior Brother Jiang has done well."
Qin Mu said with a smile, "I know what Celestial Empress is planning. She must be thinking that she still has some power and wants to rely on us to protect her power. She wants to remain as one of the ten Celestial Venerables. However, times have changed. The era of the ten Celestial Venerables should have come to an end… The seven young masters of Miluo Palace have come to visit!"
When the golden ship arrived outside the celestial heavens, Qin Mu's voice spread out and soon spread throughout the entire celestial heavens.
After a moment, the five Dao Trees trembled, and Dao Fruits floated into the air. Dao chains overflowed from the Dao fruits and shot out in all directions. The Dao chains connected with the Dao chains and transformed into a huge net that crisscrossed and covered the entire celestial heavens tightly!
Celestial Venerable Yue saw this and said suspiciously, "Mu, they seem to be guarding against you like thieves…"
Qin Mu's face was brimming with confidence, and he gave a slight smile. "This is definitely a misunderstanding! Don't worry, they know my identity, so they will naturally prepare and welcome us with great fanfare!"
The celestial heavens was in chaos. Most of the people guarding the celestial heavens were prehistoric Celestial Venerables, and their cultivation was extraordinary. The strong practitioners all had their primordial spirits out of their bodies as they executed their various Dao Realms. They were incomparably dense, and the defense of the celestial heavens was even tighter!
Celestial Venerable Yue looked into the celestial heavens and saw numerous heavy weapons being pushed out from the halls and treasuries. These were the new heavy weapons that the strong practitioners of prehistory had smuggled over. They were different from the heavy weapons of Eternal Peace.
The power of the heavy weapons was activated, and they were all aimed at Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue!
Qin Mu was about to say something when he suddenly heard someone from the celestial heavens shouting, "The bad egg of Miluo Palace is here! Everyone, be careful, raise your spirits! Five elders, five elders!"
An old voice rang out and shouted, "Don't panic! Miluo Palace is a bad egg. He's only a brat now and not the seventh young master. We aren't afraid of him!"
Qin Mu's face instantly turned black, and Celestial Venerable Yue covered her mouth to hide her laughter.
Suddenly, a woman's voice came from the side, and she said loudly, "Miluo Palace's Joyful Hall, along with the Celestial Emperor of the seventeenth era, is here on the orders of the third and fourth young masters to meet the five elders of the concubine peak."
Qin Mu looked to the side and saw a woman with only her upper body standing upright on a Dao Tree. Under the Dao Tree, Celestial Emperor Hao walked over and smiled at him.
Qin Mu ignored Emperor Hao Tian and looked at Hall Master Joyful. He smiled warmly and said, "Dao Friend Joyful, we meet again."
Hall Master Joyful didn't dare to be negligent. He bowed on the Dao Tree and said respectfully, "Greetings, seventh young master! Seventh young master ordered Shang Jun to kill me and used a divine art to harm me along the way. However, I still managed to escape and spread the news. I also have a lot of face."
Qin Mu laughed loudly and said indifferently, “My target isn’t you, it’s Changfeng Chuge and Changfeng Chuge. They’re dead, and I killed them. You’ll be meeting them soon.”
Hall Master Joyful felt a chill in his heart. He sneered and said, "Seventh young master, we are all from the same sect and are all teacher's disciples. Aren't you afraid of teacher by destroying your fellow disciples?"
Qin Mu didn't mind. "I'm still not teacher's disciple, so I can't be considered to have harmed my fellow disciples. Besides, Miluo Palace has harmed the seventeenth era. As the strongest practitioner of the seventeenth era, I naturally have to protect all living things and uphold justice for the heavens."
Hall Master Joyful snorted, and Emperor Hao Tian smiled. "Celestial Venerable Mu, you are obstinate…"
Qin Mu ignored him and turned his head around. Behind the Southern Heavenly Gate of the celestial heavens, an elder was leading numerous prehistoric Celestial Venerables to hurry over.
That elder stopped under Southern Heavenly Gate and greeted, "What wind blew over the envoys of the three young masters, four young masters, and a hall master today?"
That elder's gaze landed on Qin Mu's body, and he revealed a reluctant expression. His unwillingness then vanished, and he said with a face full of smiles, "Seventh young master actually graced our humble dwelling with your presence! Seventh young master, emissary, hall master, quickly come in!"
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Yue walked down the World Crossing Gold Ship. Celestial Venerable Yue's gaze landed on Hall Master Joyful, then moved away from her body to examine her Dao Tree fruit.
Hall Master Joyful was also sizing her up, and his gaze landed on the ancient zither on her back. Suddenly, his heart stirred slightly, and he said, "You are the woman who played the zither and messed up Fourth Young Master's Dao heart?"
Celestial Venerable Yue smiled serenely and said, "That song is very difficult."
Hall Master Joyful said with a smile, "It's indeed very difficult. That song is called Purple Firmament Dao Testament Melody, and it requires music to enter the path and reach the realm of the path before it can be fully played. Back then, it was difficult for Fourth Young Master Purple Firmament to achieve the path, but Fourth Young Master and his wife had already achieved the path ahead of him. Thus, they created this song that contained supreme spirituality to help him achieve the path. In the sixteen eras, only one person managed to enter the path with music and cultivated to the realm of the path. Fourth Young Master and his wife went through the calamities and tribulations, and this song became an absolute sound."
Celestial Venerable Yue came to a realization and said, "No wonder when I played this song, it was always hard for me to play it in its entirety. It turned out that I had to use music to achieve the Dao. Luckily, I learned by analogy and used my ultimate killing intent to awaken the Merchant Sovereign. At the same time, I reached the Large Success Stage of the Extreme Void and could barely play this song. Sister, you also cultivate the Extreme Void, right? You can't play it?"
Killing intent flashed across Hall Master Joyful's eyes, and he said with a smile, "I don't have much achievements in music. Good sister, you must play a tune later and let sister listen."
Celestial Venerable Yue said with a smile, "That's easy to say. Your ultimate killing intent was awakened by my Killing Dao tune. Sister's wound still has the remnants of your Killing Dao. I'm afraid you will die if you can't hold on to my song."
"No problem!" Hall Master Joyful said coldly.
The two girls turned their heads away and stopped talking.
Qin Mu said to the elder leading the way, "Could Dao brother be one of the five elders of the peak? Do we know each other?"
That elder hurriedly said, "We don't dare! Seventh young master, the five elders of our peak are just insignificant people in the past universe, we don't dare to enter seventh young master's eyes. It's just that back then, our five old bones were taught a lesson by seventh young master. It's probably because we are too lowly that seventh young master doesn't remember."
Qin Mu laughed loudly and muttered in his heart, 'I can also meet enemies here? When I returned to the past, how many people have I offended? Is my social relations so bad that I don't have any friends?'
