Achieving the Dao.
This phrase was frequently used by the Taiji ancient gods, and their words were filled with envy. Founding Emperor wasn't invincible. If they used their full strength, they could still keep Founding Emperor, but the ancient gods of Tai Chi weren't willing to make another move. With just Heavenly Lady Yan and Celestial Venerable Hao who didn't want to show themselves, she couldn't keep Founding Emperor.
Heavenly Lady Yan was puzzled. How could a Postcelestial lifeform be envied by an existence like the ancient god of taiji and Celestial Emperor Tai Chu, who had similar origins, and say that he was about to achieve the Dao?
"Could it be that our path is really wrong?"
Heavenly Lady Yan had mixed feelings. Celestial Venerable Yu had created the cultivation system of the celestial palace, and Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Hao had imparted techniques to all living things on behalf of Celestial Venerable Yu. The cultivation system of the celestial palace would be the cultivation path of countless living beings for the next million years.
Even Heavenly Lady Yan was a Dao Seeker on this path. She had immersed herself in the celestial palace system for too long. When Founding Emperor left Carefree Village, he had said that he had founded the cultivation system of the Dao Realm. Back then, the ten Celestial Venerables had treated the cultivation system of the Dao Realm as a supplement to the celestial palace system. Even though they valued it, they didn't take it too seriously.
Yet now, the ancient god of taiji had actually said that Founding Emperor was about to achieve the Dao, and he had even achieved the Dao before the ancient god of taiji. This made all kinds of feelings linger in her heart. There was sorrow and bitterness, and she was unable to walk out from this blow.
Celestial Venerable Gong stood up shakily and looked back. Founding Emperor was long gone.
'Founding Emperor wouldn't kill me for no reason, so who made her do it?'
Qin Mu's figure suddenly appeared in her mind, and she came to a conclusion. She stumbled and flew up, returning to her celestial palace in a panic. She was ready to enter seclusion immediately to get rid of the injuries caused by her sword path.
At this moment, Celestial Venerable Hao's voice entered her ears. "Founding Emperor was invited by someone to kill you. Dao Friend Gong, you can't be thinking of who this person is, right? You single-handedly made Qin Mu the alliance master of the Heaven Alliance, yet this ally of yours betrayed you. Celestial Venerable Gong, can you tolerate this?"
He had unknowingly appeared in Celestial Venerable Gong's celestial palace and was walking towards him. The seal that Celestial Venerable Gong had laid down seemed completely useless to him.
Vaguely, Celestial Venerable Gong saw a shadow swaying behind him, but her injuries were too severe to see clearly.
Celestial Venerable Hao came to her and said with a smile that wasn't a smile, "Celestial Venerable Gong, the Grand Emperor betrayed you, Tai Chu betrayed you, and your son, my elder brother, God Emperor Lang Xuan, also betrayed you. Now, even Celestial Venerable Mu, who you consider an ally, has betrayed you. Have you thought about the reason behind this?"
Celestial Venerable Gong's body swayed, and he said coldly, "I have never treated Celestial Venerable Mu as an ally. We are merely using each other. I don't have a deep relationship with the Grand Emperor. I married him because of the marriage between the Nü Xin Clan and Ju Yu Clan, which is beneficial to suppressing the other races. I don't have any relationship with your father, Grand Primordium, either. I'm just using him to take revenge on the Grand Emperor. As for your brother Lang Xuan, he's just an unexpected product. I have no feelings for him."
Celestial Venerable Hao said with a smile, "This is the reason why you are repeatedly injured. You only make use of your connections to everyone, and without a true ally, how would others dare to treat you wholeheartedly?"
Celestial Venerable Gong snorted and didn't say anything.
In her previous life, she was a primordial divine king, and in this life, she was a Celestial Venerable with a high position and authority. She couldn't lower her head and admit her mistake.
Celestial Venerable Hao smiled. "You keep saying that you aren't a master of creation and that you don't have a race anymore, but Celestial Venerable Mu wants Founding Emperor to kill you. Have you thought of a reason?"
Celestial Venerable Gong suppressed Dao Shang and said indifferently, "He's afraid that I'll meet Divine King Lang Wo."
Celestial Venerable Hao smiled. "In that case, will you meet Divine King Lang Wo?"
Celestial Venerable Gong was silent for a moment, then he raised his head and said resolutely, "Yes! The Battle of Xuandu is the best time for me to meet Divine King Lang Wo! I have boundless power now, but I'm alone among the ten Celestial Venerables and have no allies. Therefore, I need the masters of creation, the power of the masters of creation, and Lang Lang to assist me! Most importantly, I have the capital to let the masters of creation live!"
"More importantly, in your heart, you still think of yourself as the master of creation, the god king of the palace!"
Celestial Venerable Hao exposed her inner thoughts and said coldly, "You have never forgotten the glory of the masters of creation. You have never forgotten that you are one of the three primordial kings. You have never given up on your race. You can't forget your hatred for the Grand Emperor and Tai Chu, so you can't forget that you are a master of creation! Now that you are severely injured, you can no longer meet Lang Wo."
Celestial Venerable Gong said bitterly, "I need an ally…"
Celestial Venerable Hao said coldly, "You need someone you are loyal to, and you need to submit! In the past, you had the chance to bargain with me, but now, you no longer have the qualifications! Return to me and worship me. I will heal your injuries and let you return to the peak to meet Divine King Lang Wo!"
He stood in front of Celestial Venerable Gong and stretched out his hand. In an unquestionable tone, he said, "If your race of masters of creation wants to survive in this universe, you can only rely on me! I can't rely on you, I can't rely on Divine King Lang, and I can't rely on Celestial Venerable Mu! I can let you return to the glory of the divine king, and I can let you masters of creation find the glory of the past! Kneel, worship me, and kiss the back of my hand. I will pull you up from the depths of oblivion!"
Celestial Venerable Gong looked at his outstretched palm, and he could faintly see the shadow behind him. However, he still couldn't see the shadow clearly.
Her gaze dimmed.
On the celestial river, in the small boat, Qin Mu, Butcher, Zhe Huali, and Tian Shu laughed heartily. They were like a loose wave, and every one of them carried a jar of wine. They laughed until their eyeballs almost popped out.
"Son of Heaven Yin!"
Tian Shu laughed until his nostrils and eyes spewed out wine, and he said while gasping for breath, "When this fellow built Mingdu, there were statues of Earth Count everywhere in Mingdu. Also, Earth Count's face was carved into a totem by him, painting everywhere!"
Qin Mu laughed until he couldn't catch his breath. "Every time he saw Di Yiyue, he would run away with his tail between his legs, saying that he wasn't afraid of her! He has been a pretty boy since the first year of the Dragon Han Era! His Mingdu Heavenly Gate was even completed by Di Yiyue. This fellow fawned on Di Yiyue and plotted against her on their wedding night, and he even stabbed her in the back!"
"I heard he even used his white face to scheme against Goddess of Heavenly Yin!"
Butcher laughed until he couldn't catch his breath. His voice was like thunder as he said, "Someone even said he's the male companion of the goddess in the palace. Could it be Celestial Venerable Hao?"
Zhe Huali's nostrils spewed out two wine arrows, and he laughed until he peed his pants. "Butcher, didn't you see Son of Heaven Yin's despicable look? Look, look, his face has turned white again, and he's still pretending to watch a performance!"
The small boat approached Mingdu Heavenly Gate, and the four of them laughed even louder. They kept glancing at Son of Heaven Yin. Luo Wushuang was still old and wasn't used to this kind of situation, so he didn't participate.
Son of Heaven Yin supported his chin with his hand and turned his body to look at the song and dance in front of the heavenly gate. The laughter of Qin Mu and the rest rang out in his ears. They were all talking about his embarrassing incidents, some were not, and all kinds of disgusting things were piled on his head.
"You didn't see the situation when I chopped off his head in Mingdu!"
Tian Shu said with a smile, "I just chopped off his head under Mingdu Heavenly Gate with a knife! This fellow's abilities are low, if he didn't rely on Goddess Hao, would he be able to live until now?"
The smile on Son of Heaven Yin's face froze, and his other hand had already crushed the armrest of the throne.
"Shush, at least give him some face in front of his Mingdu army."
Qin Mu laughed until he burst into tears. Panting heavily, he said, "You didn't see the scene when he met my brother in the Great Void. That was called embarrassing! I killed his son, killed his wife, and even beat him up in front of the four great heavenly teachers and four great heavenly kings of the celestial heavens…"
Son of Heaven Yin couldn't hold it in any longer. He suddenly stood up and said in a shrill voice, "Celestial Venerable Mu, I'm giving you face? Truth be told, I'm here to stop you from going to Xuandu under the name of Celestial Venerable Hao. If you insist on going, this will be your burial place!"
Zhe Huali chuckled. "Celestial Venerable Hao? It's Goddess Hao, right?"
The four people on the boat burst into laughter. Even Luo Wushuang couldn't help but smile.
"How dare you!"
Son of Heaven Yin couldn't hold it in any longer and rose into the sky. His clothes fluttered, and his red robe fluttered in the wind. Four celestial palaces floated behind him, and Mingdu Heavenly Gate was majestic. Four celestial palaces also appeared in the gate, and together, there were eight celestial palaces. They came crashing down on the five people on the small boat, and he shouted, "Today, I shall send you five bastards to the west!"
In front of the army of the Northern Heaven Mingdu, he crushed them in the air and wanted to establish his prestige and authority in front of his own army. He didn't rely on the power of others to ascend to the position of Black Deity in Mingdu, but on his own abilities!
Even though he wasn't a Celestial Venerable in the celestial heavens, he was still a small Celestial Venerable of the eight celestial palaces!
Son of Heaven Yin's power overflowed into the sky, and before he could even reach the small boat, the expressions of the five people on the small boat suddenly changed, becoming incomparably solemn. The five of them crossed each other, and in an instant, their knives sliced through thirty voids!
A divine knife slashed down from the sky, and Son of Heaven Yin's head and body were severed. The celestial palace behind him split open, and Mingdu Heavenly Gate was also split into two!
Achieving the Dao.
