Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1552 - Forty Thousand Years Of Solitude

Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief, and his eyes shone with excitement. The Grand Emperor's power had indeed exceeded his expectations. He had never expected the Celestial Emperor in the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven to be so powerful.

This didn't match the performance of the previous Grand Emperor.

If the Grand Emperor really had such power, why would he need to feign civility with the ten Celestial Venerables?

Why was there a need to find his corporeal body by all means?

Why did he need to cripple and shatter his corporeal body in every battle?

Why did he need to use his reincarnation, Ming Fangyu, to borrow Celestial Emperor's corporeal body to assassinate Celestial Venerable Ling?

"The Grand Emperor was most likely plotted against by the Yuan Sage of Miro Palace in the Hall of Fragrance. His consciousness imprinted the Ultimate Void and created the Great Overarching Consciousness. Only then did he realize that he was being plotted against. His consciousness might not be able to descend completely, and only a small portion of his consciousness will descend every time. Thus, we fell into his trap when we fought our way into the Great Overarching Heaven."

Qin Mu's gaze flickered. "He can take the chance to wipe us out in one fell swoop! However, the corporeal body of Celestial Emperor Tai Chu isn't that easy to control."

He had hidden some small tricks in Celestial Emperor's corporeal body. He had planned to scheme against Celestial Venerable Xiao or Celestial Venerable Hao. As long as they seized this corporeal body, the 'small tricks' he had left behind would be activated!

He didn't expect the Grand Emperor in the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven to be so strong. He was the one who had taken Celestial Emperor's corporeal body from Qin Mu first!

The small trick that Qin Mu had hidden in Celestial Emperor's corporeal body was the primordial qi rune formation that was imprinted with the primordial runes. Firstly, it was convenient for him to control Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, and secondly, it was to wait for the other people who had stolen his corporeal body!

'The Grand Emperor is so strong that it's indeed hard to defeat him. However, since he has seized Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, there's a possibility of defeating him!'

Just as Qin Mu thought until here, he suddenly heard the celestial emperor's corporeal body open its mouth, and his voice shook the heaven and earth. "What a powerful corporeal body! Tai Chu, I envy you, I've always admired you!"

The Grand Emperor controlled the body and looked at Celestial Venerable Xiao, exclaiming in admiration, "You were born without learning or asking anything. You are the number one ancient god in the world, possessing boundless power and controlling Xiantian One and the number one corporeal body in the world. I'm different. I need to absorb knowledge from other masters of creation and comprehend all kinds of consciousness divine arts. I need to cultivate step by step and face the challenges of other masters of creation. I need to climb step by step to achieve something."

He clenched his fist and felt the peerless power coming from this body.

Even a Celestial Venerable would find it hard to unleash the full power of this body. Qin Mu had controlled Celestial Emperor's corporeal body just now. If he could unleash the full power of this corporeal body, he would have beaten Celestial Venerable Hao to death.

In order to unleash the power of Celestial Emperor's corporeal body, one needed to have a profound understanding of the Grand Primordium Dao and an incomparably vigorous cultivation.

The Grand Emperor was already satisfied with these two points!

The Dao of consciousness originated from the Dao of Absolute Beginning. As Heavenly Lady Qiang and Celestial Venerable Ming Fangyu, he had studied Celestial Emperor's corporeal body and the runes of Absolute Beginning for countless years.

He had a huge advantage in comprehending the Dao of Absolute Beginning.

As for magic power, his realm was still above Founding Emperor's. Once he cultivated Dao Fruit, his magic power would definitely be unmatched!

He could unleash the power of Celestial Emperor's corporeal body to the extreme, even more so than Celestial Venerable Xiao!

"Getting this body isn't my goal."

The Grand Emperor looked around and revealed a smile. "My goal is also the Dao of Absolute Beginning. In order to truly cultivate the Dao of Absolute Beginning, other than absorbing the consciousnesses of all the masters of creation, I also need to control the corporeal body of Absolute Beginning and even swallow the Grand Primordium! In the past, the ten Celestial Venerables restrained each other, so it was very difficult for me to have the chance to control the corporeal body of Absolute Beginning alone, much less swallow the Grand Primordium. Because the Grand Primordium had already reincarnated, I didn't know who he was. Therefore, I needed the Grand Primordium to deliver itself to my doorstep. What could be easier than the Grand Primordium delivering itself to my doorstep and letting me swallow it?"

He laughed loudly. "Other than swallowing the Grand Primordium, I still need to deal with a bunch of opponents that are a threat to me. Since you guys have come knocking on my door, it saves me the trouble of finding you guys one by one."

With his back against the Dao Tree, his body moved, and the Great Overarching Heaven and Dao Tree moved with him. In the next moment, he came in front of Celestial Venerable Xiao and threw a simple punch!

Celestial Venerable Xiao roared, and the celestial palace hall behind him burst forth with intense light. In an instant, he raised his cultivation to the extreme!

Not only that, his comprehension of the Dao of Absolute Beginning had also broken through at this moment, allowing him to comprehend the 28th tier of the Dao of Absolute Beginning in one go!

He wasn't like God Emperor Lang Xuan, who used other people's Dao fruits to comprehend the profound realm of the Grand Primordium Dao. He also didn't want Celestial Venerable Hao to cultivate too much.

His 28 heavens were purely 28 heavens of the Great Beginning Dao!

If he could comprehend the thirty-six heavens of the Grand Primordium Dao, he wouldn't need to rely on the Grand Primordium Origin Stone or absorb the masters of creation's consciousness. He would be able to achieve the Dao with just the Dao Realm.

It was precisely because the path of the Grand Primordium was too difficult that he thought of swallowing the masters of creation and the Grand Emperor.

Even so, reaching the 28th tier of the Tai Chu Realm was still an unimaginable feat!

If not for the pressure from the Grand Emperor, he wouldn't have been able to raise his attainments in the Dao Realm by another heaven in such a short time.


Celestial Venerable Xiao was covered in blood. His bones were broken, and his tendons snapped. He tumbled backward.

No matter how powerful his Grand Primordium Ascension divine art was, it couldn't withstand the power of the Grand Emperor's punch!

The Grand Emperor took another step forward and grabbed down with his hand. Celestial Venerable Xiao was actually sucked back into his palm.

The Grand Emperor grabbed Celestial Venerable Xiao's head and lifted him up.

On the other side, a sword light rushed over and stabbed at the eyes of Celestial Emperor's corporeal body. It was Founding Emperor who had saved Celestial Venerable Xiao.

They were enemies that wouldn't rest until one of them was dead, and they wanted nothing more than to get rid of the other. However, the Grand Emperor was too powerful, so they had no choice but to work together to deal with him. If Celestial Venerable Xiao was killed or swallowed by the Grand Emperor, none of them would be able to leave alive!

The Grand Emperor raised his other hand, and his two fingers blocked in front of his eyes. Founding Emperor's sword light clanked as it stabbed his two fingers, and two drops of blood instantly flowed out.

"Not bad."

The Grand Emperor exclaimed in admiration, "But you are still far from it. Qin Ye, you are half a step behind me, and the difference between us is like heaven and earth! Now that I have the body of the Grand Primordium, you are even further from me!"

With a flip of his palm, he struck out. Founding Emperor raised his sword, and the Great Overarching Sword Dao Great Overarching Heaven expanded outwards. It collided with his palm, and the sword path roared. However, the Great Overarching Sword Dao Great Overarching Heaven collided with the Grand Emperor's palm, and it was destroyed instantly!

At that moment, Celestial Venerable Hao gave a long and furious roar. He used a Ten Thousand Dao Heaven Wheel to slash at Celestial Emperor's wrist. The power of this strike contained thirty layers of divine arts of the Heavenly Dao Realm, and they burst forth one after another, bombarding the tendons on Celestial Emperor's wrist. After thirty consecutive strikes, the palm was finally released.

Celestial Venerable Xiao broke free and immediately executed her Grand Primordium Divine Ability, repeatedly imprinting her attacks on Celestial Emperor's forehead in an attempt to shatter the consciousness of the Grand Emperor that had invaded his body!

However, when so many of his divine arts landed, the Grand Emperor merely raised his head slightly. Two incomparably thick rays of the Grand Primordium Dao shot out from his eyes and sent him flying.

The Grand Emperor raised his other hand and smacked Celestial Venerable Hao's body. Celestial Venerable Hao's corporeal body exploded, and his flesh and blood splattered everywhere. Broken bones flew everywhere!

The Tai Su Sacred Lady flew over and used the accompanying treasure to transform into a tattered bell that struck towards the Grand Emperor. At the same time, she used the Dao of Tai Su to save Celestial Venerable Hao and help him recover.


The Grand Emperor punched the bell, and it shattered into pieces!

He grabbed Goddess Tai Su, and her body shook as she transformed into Celestial Venerable Gong. The Grand Emperor looked infatuated. He then grinned and smashed her into pieces!

Even though Divine Maiden Tai Su was shattered, she immediately transformed into the qi of the Great Simplicity Realm and reformed her body. However, her aura was also greatly weakened, and she was both shocked and furious. 'A person who has achieved the Dao is so powerful? I don't believe it!'

On the other side, Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling met up. Celestial Venerable Ling was about to rush forward when Qin Mu raised his hand to stop her. He shook his head and said, "Let them fight!"

Celestial Venerable Ling was astonished, and Qin Mu said solemnly, "Ling, I'm afraid we have to split up."

Celestial Venerable Ling was slightly stunned.

Qin Mu's consciousness rippled as he imparted what he had learned from comprehending the Dao markings of Miluo Palace to her. He then took out the two dry Kun mirrors that were imprinted with the Dao markings and stuffed them into her hands.

Celestial Venerable Ling's heart sank. "Mu, what are you doing?"

"The Grand Emperor must die, but this is the destruction of the High Emperor Era. Before the Founding Emperor Era was established, it was forty thousand years ago."

Qin Mu's gaze flickered, and he said solemnly, "I need you to execute the unchanging divine art and send us back to our era, which will be forty thousand years later. At that time, Founding Emperor's Great Overarching Sword Dao will be in the Ultimate Void, and Founding Emperor's Dao Tree Dao Flower will be there. Only then will we have the power to fight the Grand Emperor. The trump card I left in Celestial Emperor's corporeal body might not be able to deal with the Grand Emperor."

Celestial Venerable Ling's heart trembled, and she said with a hoarse voice, "I'm not a person from forty thousand years later. I can't return to forty thousand years later. I can only stay here after sending you guys off."

"Forty thousand years later, we will be reunited. At that time, you will comprehend the Dao pattern of the Miro Palace for forty thousand years, and you will be able to comprehend the marvel within."

Qin Mu nodded and smiled. "If we still can't get rid of the Grand Emperor by then, you will have to kill your way to the Great Overarching Heaven and finish him off!"

His gaze was fervent. "Ling, can you endure forty thousand years of loneliness? I need you to endure forty thousand years of loneliness to save Celestial Venerable Yun's primordial spirit!"

Celestial Venerable Ling's gaze gradually dimmed. After a moment, her gaze gradually lit up again, and she revealed a smile. She seemed to be proud and aloof. "Forty thousand years? I have researched the unchanging divine art alone for a million years, and I have already made it through. How can forty thousand years be enough? Mu, forty thousand years later, we will reunite in the Great Overarching Heaven!"

"I'll send you out of the Great Overarching Heaven!"

Qin Mu roused his vital qi, and a golden ship flew out from the heart of his brows. Celestial Venerable Ling leaped onto it, and the golden ship rushed out of Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven, carrying the woman out of the Ultimate Void.

"Mu, forty thousand years later, I will return!"

The woman stood at the bow of the ship and waved at him from afar. "Alive! Alive!"

Qin Mu sent him out of the layers of void. Soon, the World Crossing Golden Ship carried Celestial Venerable Ling to the ruins of the High Emperor Era. Celestial Venerable Ling got off the golden ship, and the golden ship whooshed away, disappearing into the depths of the void.

Celestial Venerable Ling looked up and saw the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven faintly discernible in the Ultimate Void.

She took out the peachwood hairpin and executed the unchanging divine art on the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven. It was incomparably difficult to execute the divine art.

She was casting a spell on the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven, and everyone in the Great Overarching Heaven Heaven was at the Celestial Venerable level. There were even three people who had achieved the Dao, terrifying existences like the Grand Emperor, and Celestial Emperor's corporeal body!

Celestial Venerable Ling tried her best to execute her divine art, sending Qin Mu and the rest to the era they were in.

Her magic power rose, and she felt the tremors from the Great Overarching Heaven. It was a backlash to her.

Soon, her magic power was used up, and she was still forcefully completing this divine art.

Finally, this unchanging divine art surrounded the entire Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven. Celestial Venerable Ling gave a roar, and the divine art burst forth, causing the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven to vanish!

Celestial Venerable Ling's body softened, and she knelt down, her aura weak.

After a long time, she stood up shakily with a look of sorrow and joy.

"I'm alone again…"

Tears rolled down the corners of her eyes as she muttered, "I'm still alone… However, I'll continue walking. Wait for me!"

She looked at the two mirrors that Qin Mu had given her and put them away. She turned around and walked further away.

Thousands of years later, the Founding Emperor Celestial Heavens was established, and Founding Emperor ascended to the throne. On this day, Founding Emperor was reading a memorial when a woman in green walked out of the night.

Founding Emperor raised his head and saw the woman in green. His body couldn't help trembling.

The woman in green revealed a smile. "Celestial Venerable Qin, long time no see. I've been waiting for you for a long time."
