Celestial Venerable Yun became even more flustered. In just a short while, only his spirit embryo was left!
And what did he mean by doing the opposite?
Weren't they supposed to protect Earth Count?
Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest used Earth Count as a hostage to force Qin Mu and the rest to come to their rescue. They fell into Celestial Venerable Hao's trap, so why did Qin Mu have to get rid of Earth Count first?
No matter how weak Earth Count was, he was still an ally. How could there be a reason to get rid of his strongest ally before the battle even started?
Earth Count was also an existence with powerful combat power. Even though the Celestial Venerables were much stronger than before, Earth Count should be able to take down Ancestral God King who controlled Heaven Duke's corporeal body!
Instead of letting Earth Count and Ancestral God King perish together, they should first get rid of Earth Count. Celestial Venerable Mu's plan was inconceivable and incomprehensible.
"If Earth Count is alive, he will be a huge target. As long as an arrow comes, he can shoot it!"
Qin Mu excitedly sealed Celestial Venerable Yun's celestial palace and prevented the energy from leaking out. "If Celestial Venerable Hao can shoot, we can naturally shoot as well! Our goal is not to let Youdu fall into the hands of the celestial heavens. Our second goal is to save Earth Count so that he can break free from the restraints of the ancient gods and be reborn as a human. As long as we strike first, we can set up Youdu before Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest and gain the upper hand!"
Celestial Venerable Yun's eyes widened, and he was at a loss for words. "I…"
"Previously, it was Celestial Venerable Hao and Grand Primordium who had the upper hand. If they attack Youdu and kill Earth Count, we have to deal with them. As long as we deal with them, we will fall into their trap."
Qin Mu's ten fingers moved up and down, tapping on his body continuously. His speed of speech was even faster than the speed of his fingers, and he said quickly, "When they want to make a move, they can make a move. They can set up traps calmly, and we can only watch on helplessly as we barge into their traps. As long as we barge in, they can retract the net and trap us in it, allowing them to slaughter us as they please. What if we do the opposite and lay the trap while we kill Earth Count?"
His eyes were bright as he looked at Celestial Venerable Yun with anticipation.
Celestial Venerable Yun opened his mouth. "I…"
"I know you will definitely agree to this plan!"
Qin Mu clenched his fists in excitement and smiled. "It's decided then! Cultivate well!"
Celestial Venerable Yun hurriedly grabbed him. "Don't leave yet! You destroyed my divine treasures, so how am I supposed to cultivate? You have to compensate me!"
Qin Mu broke free from his hand and said with a smile, "I've already found a teacher for you. Now that you have a corporeal body, you can leave Great Overarching Heaven. I'll send you to Eternal Peace, and someone will send you to the Ancestral Court World Tree. Your teacher is waiting for you there."
Celestial Venerable Yun felt that he couldn't unleash any power in his corporeal body, and he was depressed.
There was a period of time when he admired Qin Mu and fantasized about fighting side by side with him. He fantasized about drinking and chatting happily with Qin Mu. He fantasized about being strong and commanding with Qin Mu.
However, the more he interacted with Qin Mu, the more he felt that Qin Mu was different from the Celestial Venerable Mu he had imagined.
This Celestial Venerable Mu was a little unreliable.
Qin Mu thought of something and instructed, "Brother Yun, hide that Tai Chu Emperor Sword of yours well and don't carry it with you. Tai Chu can't sense his Emperor Sword in the Great Overarching Heaven, but if you leave the Great Overarching Heaven, he will be able to sense his accompanying treasure and find you to kill you. The Emperor Sword must not fall into his hands."
Celestial Venerable Yun nodded and said, "The Ultimate Void is incomparably vast. Even though Grand Primordium and Celestial Venerable Hao have the Great Overarching Heaven, as long as I want to hide, they can forget about finding me."
He got ready and followed Qin Mu onto the World Crossing Golden Ship.
He couldn't use his power now, so Qin Mu used his magic power to carry him onto the ship. Celestial Venerable Yun came to Celestial Venerable Ling's side, and she sat there, calculating something. She ignored him.
"Ling, you still have a weird temper." Celestial Venerable Yun shook his head and sat down.
He had interacted with Celestial Venerable Ling much longer than Qin Mu. In the entire Dragon Han Era, Celestial Venerable Ling had this weird temper, and she didn't even bother to talk to her.
Qin Mu said, "When you reach the ancestral court and meet your teacher, you should be able to reopen your divine treasures in no time. When that time comes, your celestial palace will automatically open. That's right, I'm only sealing your corporeal body. If you meet an enemy, you can use the power of your primordial spirit to prevent the grand Celestial Venerable Yun, Heaven Han Celestial Emperor, and today's achieving Dao from being killed by some small fry."
Celestial Venerable Yun was astonished. "You aren't coming with me to the ancestral court?"
Qin Mu shook his head. "I want to see Celestial Venerable You."
Celestial Venerable Yun nodded and suddenly said, "Why don't you teach me yourself? How's that teacher's abilities compared to yours? If I can't compare to you, I might as well follow you."
Qin Mu said with a smile, "His abilities are naturally inferior to mine, but what he cultivates is orthodox. My path is crooked and not suitable for you. When we reach the place, you will know, there's no need to ask."
When he said that, Celestial Venerable Yun wanted to know who that teacher was even more. However, since Qin Mu refused to say it, there was nothing he could do.
The World Crossing Golden Ship sailed out of the Ultimate Void and came to Eternal Peace. Qin Mu walked into the academy and came to see Village Chief. He suppressed the tradition of beating up his teacher in Hall of Human Emperors and said, "Grandpa Village Chief, this is Celestial Venerable Yun. Escort him to the ancestral court to find Fatty Lan."
Village Chief looked at Celestial Venerable Yun and felt deep veneration for him. He bowed and said, "Junior is Su Muzhe, here to pay my respects to Celestial Venerable Yun! Celestial Venerable Yun, please follow me!"
Celestial Venerable Yun followed him far away, and Qin Mu heard Village Chief's voice coming from afar. "Celestial Venerable Yun and Mu'er are good friends, right? Speaking of which, I'm also Mu'er's teacher, and his sword skills were taught by me. Back then, when he was young, he was even sold to a fabric store by our village's granny. Hahahaha, I'll tell you about this in detail on the way…"
Qin Mu's face was black as he watched the two of them leave. Only then did he mobilize the golden ship to head to Youdu.
Celestial Venerable Ling was still on the ship and hadn't moved at all. The World Crossing Golden Ship sailed into Youdu and flew towards Earth Count's horns. Qin Mu studied the changes in the Dao markings of Miluo Palace diligently, but there were still many questions that he couldn't understand in a short time.
He wanted to ask Celestial Venerable Ling about it, but he was too shocked by Celestial Venerable Ling to speak.
After a long time, Celestial Venerable Ling raised her head and smoothed her hair. "If you really don't understand, just ask."
Qin Mu's spirit was roused, and he immediately voiced out his doubts.
On the other side, Village Chief brought Celestial Venerable Yun to the ancestral court. They first went to the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge under Eternal Peace, which led to the ancestral court.
At this moment, Celestial Venerable Yun saw Celestial Venerable Yue standing beside the bridge.
Celestial Venerable Yue stood there quietly as if she was waiting for him.
Village Chief stopped talking about Qin Mu. Celestial Venerable Yun walked forward and smiled. "Yue, long time no see."
Celestial Venerable Yue couldn't help but cry. She smiled and said, "That's right, it's been too long. It's great to see you again."
Celestial Venerable Yun couldn't help but recall the glorious years of the Dragon Han Era. At that time, the human race was lowly, and the strongest were the human Celestial Venerables.
However, after Celestial Venerable Yu died, the hope of the human race seemed to be cut off. Celestial Venerable You went to Youdu, Celestial Venerable Huo went to Celestial Venerable Hao, and Celestial Venerable Qin and Celestial Venerable Mu vanished without a trace, leaving behind only the Heaven Alliance. However, the Heaven Alliance was still empty.
At that time, humans had no hope.
He wanted to do something, but at that time, only Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling supported him and followed him until he died.
He had great ambitions, but their power was still too weak. Even though he was the first to cultivate to the Emperor's Throne Realm, he was still unable to overturn the heavens in that era. He still couldn't defeat the ancient gods and half-gods.
The Dragon Han Era was still an era of incomparable depression and despair. It was Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling who supported him, giving him hope and motivation.
Village Chief quietly waited for them to catch up. After a long time, Celestial Venerable Yue left. Village Chief walked forward and entered the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge with Celestial Venerable Yu.
When they walked out of the bridge, they had already reached the ancestral court.
Celestial Venerable Yun clicked his tongue in wonder as he sighed ruefully.
This kind of mutual shift bridge was a bridge that crossed different worlds. Its speed was so fast that it broadened his horizons.
On the way, he listened to Village Chief talk about Qin Mu's various achievements and had some understanding of him. He thought to himself, 'Celestial Venerable Mu is the combination of the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village. No wonder his temperament is jumping around, and he often has terrifying thoughts.'
Suddenly, his pupils contracted and he stopped.
Village Chief was slightly stunned and revealed a puzzled expression.
"Su Muzhe, you can go back now."
Celestial Venerable Yun took in a deep breath and looked forward. He said solemnly, "An old friend has sensed me coming down to the lower bound and is waiting for me on the path ahead. If you go, you won't be able to protect yourself."
Village Chief followed his gaze and looked forward. He was astonished as he saw flames rising from between the two mountains of the ancestral court.
It was Dao fire.
The flames lit up the two mountains, and one could faintly see a figure standing in the flames!
"Celestial Venerable Huo!"
The corners of Village Chief's eyes twitched, and he suddenly pulled out his sword.
Celestial Venerable Yun raised his eyebrows. Before his divine sword could even leave its sheath, he pressed down on his hand and pushed it back into its sheath. He said solemnly, "Don't act rashly. You can't even survive one move from him. We are old friends, so there won't be any danger. You can go back now."
Village Chief's hand was still firmly holding onto the hilt of his sword. His corporeal body recovered from old age to young, and he soon returned to his robust years. His muscles looked as though they had been washed by a long river, and there wasn't a trace of excess flesh. He said solemnly, "Celestial Venerable Yun, if anything happens to you, I won't be able to answer to Mu'er!"
Celestial Venerable Yun hesitated for a moment before walking forward. "Follow me, don't speak, don't make any movements, just treat yourself as blind, deaf, and mute."
Village Chief followed him step by step, and the two of them walked between the two mountains.
The Dao fire separated, revealing a safe passage.
Celestial Venerable Yun walked to the back of that person. That person turned around and revealed a delighted expression. He looked at him with a smile that was neither a smile nor a cry.
"Celestial Venerable Yun, my lifelong Dao friend!"
Celestial Venerable Huo's tears turned into Dao flames that surrounded him. "We can finally meet again!"
Celestial Venerable Yun revealed a smile and walked forward. "Celestial Venerable Huo, we meet again."
Celestial Venerable Huo laughed loudly, and his voice reverberated throughout the valley.
"It's laughable that Celestial Venerable Ling is stubborn, Celestial Venerable Yue is scheming, Celestial Venerable You is autistic, Celestial Venerable Qin is blind, and Celestial Venerable Mu is a stone in the toilet! They don't understand me!"
Celestial Venerable Huo spread out his arms and smiled. "Even Brother Lan Yutian can only make me admire him, but he can't make me feel close to him. Only Celestial Venerable Yun is my confidant! Yun, the person who knows me the most and understands me the most, I'm incomparably happy that you're alive!"
Celestial Venerable Yun became even more flustered. In just a short while, only his spirit embryo was left!
