Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1508 - Questions

Qin Mu had just retreated back onto the small boat when the ten Celestial Venerables noticed him. They all thought to themselves, 'This fellow is crafty!'

"Celestial Venerable Mu, since you are here, why do you have to leave?"

Celestial Venerable Xiao's voice rang out, and Qin Mu's feet landed on the small boat. Only then was he at ease, and he said with a smile, "I saw that everyone was like wolves and tigers, surrounding a young woman like a flower, so I was nervous. However, I didn't want to act bravely for a just cause, so I could only retreat."

Ancestral God King snorted. "A young woman like a flower… Can the Grand Emperor can also be considered a young woman like a flower? What a joke!"

"Son of a bitch who killed his father, how dare you criticize the Grand Emperor?" Qin Mu shouted angrily.

Heavenly Lady Qiang couldn't help having a good impression of Qin Mu. She thought to herself, 'This scoundrel actually has a chance to uphold justice for me… Bah! This bastard is stirring the water!'

Ancestral God King was furious and suddenly laughed out loud. "Heaven Duke? Celestial Venerable Mu, don't forget that you were the one who gave the order to suppress Heaven Duke in front of everyone! Furthermore, I'm the Heaven Duke now! Who dares to criticize me? Aren't you afraid of not seeing the sun for years? If you offend me, I'll stop all the sun and starlight in the world!"

Qin Mu smiled. "Heavenly Duke Zu is really magnanimous. He's not as petty as him. Who said Heavenly Lady Qiang is the Grand Emperor?"

He changed the topic and said angrily, "The ten Celestial Venerables need evidence to kill people, right? Not to mention a Celestial Venerable that has contributed to the world! Heavenly Lady Qiang is Celestial Emperor's concubine and a Celestial Venerable. Without concrete evidence, it's unreasonable for you to kill her!"

Heavenly Lady Qiang looked at him and thought to herself, 'When did this fellow become so pleasant?'

Celestial Venerable Gong suddenly said, "Could it be that Celestial Venerable Mu is harming your kind? Are you afraid that after we get rid of the Grand Emperor, you will turn around and get rid of you?"

She pointed out Qin Mu's true thoughts. Qin Mu was indeed worried that they would attack him after getting rid of Heavenly Lady Qiang, so he defended her.

Protecting Heavenly Lady Qiang was protecting himself.

If the ten Celestial Venerables could tolerate the Grand Emperor, it wouldn't be a big deal to tolerate a mere Celestial Venerable Mu.

Celestial Venerable Hao said plainly, "Celestial Venerable Mu, I'm afraid you're wrong. We stopped Heavenly Lady Qiang to let her lead the way and explore the mysteries of Jade Capital City. We didn't do it to kill her."

Qin Mu's heart jumped, and he understood what he meant.

Celestial Venerable Hao, Celestial Venerable Xiao, and the rest split into two groups and entered the long river of chaos. They tried to reach the opposite shore, but they were all lost in the river.

They must have met Heavenly Lady Qiang by chance and followed her to this place.

Their goal of trapping Heavenly Lady Qiang wasn't to kill her, but because they saw a long river of chaos blocking their way. That was why they stopped her and forced her to lead the way!

As expected, Celestial Venerable Xiao said with a faint smile, "Heavenly Lady Qiang colluded with the strong practitioners of the past universe. She deserves to die, so it's natural for us to execute her. However, she's useful. We still need to borrow her power to cross this river of chaos and explore the mystery of this Jade Capital City, saving the people of the world."

'I didn't catch the fox and instead got myself into trouble.' Qin Mu was secretly regretful.

A smile broke out on Shi Qiluo's bearded face, and he stuck out his tongue at Qin Mu. Qin Mu ignored him and thought to himself, 'I failed this time, but I didn't fall too hard. As long as I retreat into the chaotic river, they won't be able to do anything to me…'

Celestial Venerable Huo sneered. "Celestial Venerable Mu, you defended Heavenly Lady Qiang. Could it be that you colluded with those who achieved the Dao in the past universe? I knew you were such an ungrateful person. I hate that I didn't see through your true colors earlier and get rid of you!"

Qin Mu smiled and the small boat was about to float back.

Suddenly, Celestial Venerable Hao said indifferently, "Brother Huo, there's no need to say that. Celestial Venerable Mu is the alliance master of the Heaven Alliance, after all. How could he betray the Heaven Alliance? Betray the people of the world? Wouldn't that be betraying himself? Betray the Heaven Alliance that he founded?"

Qin Mu was stunned. He didn't expect Celestial Venerable Hao to speak up for him.

Celestial Venerable Huo also didn't expect this. He bowed slightly and said, "Dao Brother is right."

Celestial Venerable Hao said warmly, "Celestial Venerable Mu, for you to be able to come here shows that your abilities have improved greatly. It took us ten Celestial Venerables a long time to break into the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court. One more person means one more force. Since you are our alliance master, please lead us to visit the Jade Capital City."

Qin Mu muttered to himself.

Celestial Venerable Hao suddenly asked in Dao language, "Celestial Venerable Mu, are you going to betray yourself and the Heaven Alliance?"

His shout came suddenly, and his Dao language directly bombarded Qin Mu's Dao heart, forming a Great Dao Question in his Dao heart!

In that instant, the Great Dao rumbled in Qin Mu's Dao heart and vibrated. It was as if all the Great Dao he had cultivated in his body were questioning him at the same time, pointing straight at his Dao heart!

Qin Mu was astonished. He raised his head and looked at Celestial Venerable Hao as if he knew him for the first time.

There weren't many people who could communicate in Dao language, so one had to have profound comprehension of Dao!

The five Primordial Ancient Gods communicated with the Dao language, but that was the natural ability of Tai Yi, Tai Chu, and the rest. Founding Emperor had cultivated to the 35 heavens of the sword path, and now he could communicate with the Dao language.

Qin Mu was able to use Dao language to communicate because of his extremely high attainments in the Dao Realm. He had also studied the Great Dao of the five Primordial Ancient Gods.

Celestial Venerable Hao suddenly shouted in Dao language, forming a Great Dao Question in his Dao heart. It pointed straight at his Dao heart, forcing him to not reject it.

If Qin Mu rejected it and went against his Dao heart, it would definitely cause great damage to his Dao heart. It might even make him question himself.

Self-doubt was extremely terrifying to martial cultivators, especially those with achievements in the Dao Realm.

On the path of cultivation, if one doubted themselves, they would not advance but retreat instead. If Qin Mu didn't agree to travel with them, his cultivation would continue to deteriorate, and the various Great Daos he cultivated would gradually be stripped from his body, losing his abilities!

This was Dao Seeking divine art!

The Dao Seeking divine art had the same effect as Nine Hells Platform's divine art. It wasn't as strange as Qin Mu's Nine Hells Locking Dao Heart. If Qin Mu was on guard, he wouldn't have been blasted into his Dao heart by Celestial Venerable Hao's Dao Seeking divine art.

However, the crucial point was that he was unprepared!

'Behind Celestial Venerable Hao, there's really a powerful existence from the past universe guiding him. Or could it be that he comprehended to this step?'

Qin Mu's gaze moved away from Celestial Venerable Hao's face, and he smiled as he walked ashore. 'If it's the latter, then I've underestimated him. His aptitude and comprehension are definitely not inferior to Founding Emperor!'

He stepped on solid ground, and only then did the tremors and waves caused by Dao Querying divine art in his Dao heart gradually calm down.

Behind him, the small boat flew up and drew an arc above Qin Mu's head to land in front of him. Qin Mu raised his hand, and the small boat transformed into a cane which he held onto.

"Celestial Venerable Hao is right."

Qin Mu's expression was indifferent as he smiled. "In that case, as the alliance master of the Heaven Alliance, I shall lead everyone to explore this dangerous place."

The gazes of the ten Celestial Venerables fell on the cane in his hand. Ancestral God King, Lang Xuan, and the other Celestial Venerables cried out, "It's you!"

Qin Mu was slightly stunned. He followed their gaze and looked at the crutch. He instantly knew what they were shocked about and couldn't help laughing. "It's not me. I'm just borrowing his crutch. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to pass through this long river of chaos."

Ancestral God King, Lang Xuan, Heavenly Lady Qiang, and Celestial Venerable Xiao surrounded the Grand Emperor and killed their way into the 35 voids, killing him until only his head was left. After that, Qin Mu was trapped by the four Celestial Venerables in the chaos sea of the ancestral court.

At that time, it was this walking stick that had suddenly risen from the sea. With one strike, it had sent the four great Celestial Venerables flying, forcing them to retreat!

Previously, the crutch was a small boat with a strange shape, so they couldn't see it. Now that it had returned to the main body of the crutch, the four Celestial Venerables immediately recalled their sullen past and shivered.

Celestial Venerable Xiao asked politely, "Celestial Venerable Mu, is that Dao brother doing well?"

Qin Mu sighed ruefully. "He's doing very well. He has always been in my sacred ground, eating and drinking well, like an ancestor. When I went out this time, he even told me there were many bad people outside and asked me to use his crutch to defend myself. I said how could there be bad people in this world? In the end, I met…"

He took a deep look at the ten Celestial Venerables.

Celestial Venerable Xiao didn't mind and said with a smile, "That Dao brother has remarkable abilities and is an existence that has achieved the Dao. He doesn't have a distinction between good and evil in his heart, so don't joke around, Celestial Venerable Mu. If he had a distinction between good and evil, the universe would no longer be what it is today. Since that Dao brother is a guest in the black mountain, can I pay a visit after this matter is settled?"

Qin Mu's heart leaped again, and he cried out bitterly in his heart.

Now, where could he find a Tai Yi?

However, if he didn't agree, he would show weakness and be seen through by Celestial Venerable Xiao and the other old foxes.

"Whether or not Dao brother wants to see you guys, I can't decide."

Qin Mu muttered to himself for a moment and said, "Celestial Venerable Xiao is also his Dao friend. After all, he's Celestial Emperor Tai Chu. I still have to give him some face. Don't worry, I'll definitely put in a good word for you in front of Old Dao Brother when we return…"

Just as he said that, the two ancient gods of Taiji behind Heavenly Lady Yan looked at each other. The male ancient god said, "Can Celestial Venerable Mu put in a good word for us? We would like to seek an audience with that Dao brother!"

Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest were shocked. They looked at the cane in Qin Mu's hand, puzzled. 'Who exactly is this Dao brother? Even the ancient god of taiji wants to meet him?'

Qin Mu said with difficulty, "It's not that I don't want to give you two face, but that old Dao brother isn't someone that anyone can see just because they want to… Alright, alright, you two are also my acquaintances, and your friendship is as solid as iron, so I'll sacrifice my face to speak for you two…"

Suddenly, Tai Su's voice came from behind Celestial Venerable Hao. "Celestial Venerable Mu, if you can introduce me, I can spare your life."

Qin Mu looked behind Celestial Venerable Hao and saw that Tai Su sometimes transformed into a huge cauldron, sometimes into a divine sword, and suddenly transformed into a huge bell. The shapes of all kinds of treasures changed, sometimes into Bai Qu'er, then Lang Wo, then Ling Yuxiu, and finally, a treasure.

Tai Su sensed all kinds of thoughts from him and couldn't help becoming furious. 'This fellow must be a spirit in a robe, right? His thoughts are so messy and his thoughts are wild, he doesn't have the bearing of a Daoist!'

Qin Mu said with a face full of smiles, "Since Dao Friend Tai Su has the intention to turn hostility into friendship, how can I not fulfill your wish? When this matter is over, I'll ask him. As for whether I can meet him, I don't dare to make a promise."

"So her name is Tai Su!" The other Celestial Venerables looked behind Celestial Venerable Hao. What they saw was different, and it reflected what they were thinking.

Tai Su snorted. "I'm not trying to turn hostility into friendship with you. You caused me to come out early, so even if you are willing to recommend me, I won't let you go. I'm just sparing your life."

Qin Mu didn't mind and walked to the second river of chaos with his cane. He had a headache. 'Who should I find to impersonate Tai Yi? Lan Yutian, I'm afraid it won't work, neither will Founding Emperor… Why don't I give up my old face and pretend to be Tai Yi, then I'll take the chance to get rid of this little girl…'
