Village Chief looked at Celestial Venerable Huo alertly, feeling slightly anxious.
Now that Celestial Venerable Yun's corporeal body was restricted by Qin Mu, he could only use his primordial spirit cultivation. Although his primordial spirit was powerful, it was unknown if he was Celestial Venerable Huo's match.
After Celestial Venerable Huo returned from the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court, his cultivation had greatly increased. It was obvious that he had rashly appeared in the ancestral court and blocked their path as if he had foreseen the future. He gave off an uneasy feeling.
How did he know that Celestial Venerable Yun was going to the ancestral court?
How did he accurately block their path?
Celestial Venerable Yun was still very indifferent. Celestial Venerable Huo opened his arms, but he didn't go forward to hug Celestial Venerable Huo. Instead, he smiled and said, "I'm also very happy to be able to meet my old friends again. Huo, you seem to have some doubts, and you have some complaints about Celestial Venerable Yu, Celestial Venerable Mu, and the rest. Can you tell me about it?"
Celestial Venerable Huo put down his arms, seemingly disappointed that his old friend didn't hug him after reuniting with Celestial Venerable Yun. He smiled and said, "I don't want to talk about those sad things. I was conscientious about the safety of the human race, but I was always misunderstood by others. Hehe, after you left, I was the one who protected the human race and prevented the human race from being wiped out. However, no matter if it was Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yue, or Celestial Venerable You of Founding Emperor, they all mocked me!"
The more he spoke, the angrier he became. He sneered and said, "Especially Celestial Venerable Mu! Back then, I respected him for taking revenge for Big Brother Yu. He was a hot-blooded man, but I didn't expect him to have the deepest misunderstanding of me! I endured humiliation for the human race and even carried the infamy of harming my own race. However, I protected the human race and managed to create an ideal world in Southern Heaven! And what did he do for the human race? He would only lead the human race to rebel! He would only destroy the great situation I had managed! He still has the face to call us sinners!"
He looked at Celestial Venerable Yun with a fervent gaze. "They don't understand me. Yun, you must understand me, right?"
Celestial Venerable Yun pondered for a long time before raising his head and smiling. "I understand."
Celestial Venerable Huo's spirit was roused, and he laughed. "I know you will understand me! Back then, during the Dragon Han Era, you and I talked more than once about our ideals. Even though our ideals were different, you know my character!"
Celestial Venerable Yun nodded. "During the Dragon Han Era, the human race was weak and was only one of the more eye-catching races in the thousands of worlds. We, the Nine Celestial Venerables of Dragon Han, were born. However, at that time, the power of the human race was insignificant. Even we, the Nine Celestial Venerables of Dragon Han, were merely meat on the chopping block of the ancient gods, waiting to be slaughtered. It was only when Celestial Venerable Mu killed the five elements ancient gods on the celestial river that the world was shocked by the power of the human race."
Celestial Venerable Huo's expression sank, and he was a little unhappy when he heard Qin Mu's achievements.
Celestial Venerable Yun continued, "Even so, the power of the human race is still too weak. Despair shrouded me all the time. I felt that my power was lacking, so I looked for you time again, asking you to help me. You said you wanted to find another path for the human race."
Celestial Venerable Huo recalled the past and said, "At that time, we had a long discussion, and you felt that it would be hard for the human race to win. We didn't have the ability to compete with the ancient gods and half-gods, and we could even consign the human race to eternal damnation at any time. You wanted me to help you."
Celestial Venerable Yun sighed. "You said that we can't put all the eggs in one basket. There have to be two solutions. The first is that I will continue to resist and fight for the human race."
Celestial Venerable Huo said, "The second plan is for me to lead a portion of the human race to submit to the half-gods and fight against the ancient gods with them. If you fail, the human race won't be wiped out because of this, and the human race will survive."
Celestial Venerable Yun nodded and said, "That's why I have no objections to you submitting to Celestial Venerable Hao. The truth is that your vision is extremely far-sighted and your judgment is very accurate. Celestial Venerable Hao is indeed incomparably powerful. He defeated the ancient gods, defeated me, and won the final victory of the Dragon Han Era."
Celestial Venerable Huo said solemnly, "At that time, we discussed that you would lead the human race to rebel. If we failed, I would have to kill you to show my loyalty to the half-gods. I did go."
He choked and said, "I went to kill you with tears in my eyes. My heart hurts the most when you die! However, because of this, I have to bear the infamy! Yun, do you blame me for killing you?"
Celestial Venerable Yun shook his head. "I don't blame you for that."
Celestial Venerable Huo laughed loudly, his voice full of gratification. "I know, only Yun is a hero, the one who understands me the most! What Celestial Venerable Qin, what Celestial Venerable Mu, they aren't even worthy of carrying Yun's shoes!"
"After that, Crimson Light Revolution, Huo, you went to kill Light Emperor with tears in your eyes, right?" Celestial Venerable Yun asked.
Celestial Venerable Huo frowned slightly and said, "Light Emperor is inferior to you. It's hard for him to succeed, he will only be a hindrance."
"During the High Emperor Era, you should have gone to kill Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling with tears in your eyes."
Celestial Venerable Yun walked to his side and looked at the sky that was distorted by the flames. He sighed ruefully. "During the Founding Emperor Era, you went to kill Celestial Venerable Qin with tears in your eyes. During the Eternal Peace Era, you went to kill Celestial Venerable Mu with tears in your eyes…"
Celestial Venerable Huo frowned even more as he looked at the sky behind Celestial Venerable Yun.
Suddenly, he cut Celestial Venerable Yu off. "Yun, in terms of strategy, Crimson Emperor and Light Emperor are inferior to you. Celestial Venerable Yue and Celestial Venerable Ling are two extraordinary women, but their methods are much inferior to yours. They can't defeat Celestial Venerable Hao or the ten Celestial Venerables at all! As for Celestial Venerable Qin Ye, when he rose up, the prehistoric situation of the universe was set. The ten Celestial Venerables ruled the world, and no one else could make a comeback! Celestial Venerable Mu is just a child messing around. Yun, you should understand."
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled. "In that case, when did you stop crying when you killed them?"
Celestial Venerable Huo suddenly turned around.
The two of them had four legs and were almost standing on the same line. However, one was facing the east while the other was facing the west.
When Celestial Venerable Huo turned his head, so did Celestial Venerable Yun.
Village Chief felt that the flames in the two mountains suddenly became blazing hot. The Dao fire swirled and a dry hot wind blew at him, making him smell a burnt smell.
His palm gripped the handle of the divine sword tightly, and his fighting spirit grew stronger. He was completely focused on Celestial Venerable Huo's every move.
The mountain of the ancestral court was majestic and magnificent, but even the tallest mountain couldn't suppress their imposing manner!
Celestial Venerable Yun smiled. "When did it start? From the moment you became one of the ten Celestial Venerables? From the moment you gained supreme power, you no longer held back your tears when you killed your own kind, right?"
Celestial Venerable Huo was silent. Between the two divine mountains, the Dao fire roared and blew towards both sides of the canyon.
The two mountains melted in the flames, and the ground became limp. The magma beneath the ground churned, and the ground floated, softened, and melted.
"During the Dragon Han Era, we discussed several times. I understand your choice."
Celestial Venerable Yun said, "In the past, there was a country where the people had a bad life, and the strategist had two sons who wanted to roam the world. The eldest son said that I wanted to support the influential officials and overthrow the imperial court. The influential officials had power and influence, and the influential officials became the Yellow Emperor. When I became the influential officials, I could let the people live better."
"My youngest son said that I don't trust the influential and powerful. I want to establish my own power and overthrow the imperial court so that the people can live a better life. Thus, they made a promise that if my youngest son fails, to prevent the flames of war from continuing, my eldest son must kill my youngest son."
Celestial Venerable Huo was expressionless as he tilted his head to listen.
"After that, the evil imperial court was overthrown. The influential officials supported by the elder son became the emperor, while the younger son became the rebel. The elder son killed his younger brother with tears in his eyes, stopping the war."
Celestial Venerable Yun asked, "Is this what we thought back then?"
Celestial Venerable Huo didn't reply.
Celestial Venerable Yun said, "My eldest son has rendered meritorious service by supporting the emperor and has become an official. However, the lives of the people in the country are still destitute and the people are suffering. At this time, my eldest son no longer has any thoughts of overthrowing the new imperial court because…"
He said indifferently, "Because he is a part of this imperial court, the most powerful person in the imperial court. Why would he overthrow himself? Therefore, every time someone resisted because they couldn't endure the pressure, his eldest son would always be the first to jump out and wipe out the volunteer army. Because he has experienced the three heavens of Dragon Han and those things, he knows that he can't let these volunteer armies get rid of his position. He's no longer the eldest son that did it for his family."
"Yun, you've changed."
Celestial Venerable Huo sighed bleakly and shook his head. "You are no longer that cloud from back then. You are no longer that cloud that understands me."
The face on his mask distorted, and at the same time, he revealed a crying and smiling expression. "You are the same as Mu and Qin, you also want me to die?"
Celestial Venerable Yun had his hands behind his back as he looked at the sky that was distorted by the Dao fire. He said leisurely, "Generous song of the Swallow City, calm and composed as Chu Qiu. Bringing the knife to work fast, not letting down the youth!"
He sneered, "Envoy Xiang died back then, who knows if his life was real or fake? Huo, you still have a way out."
He turned around and faced Celestial Venerable Huo. "Huo, if you can assassinate Celestial Venerable Hao and use your relationship with Celestial Venerable Hao to kill him, the human race will be able to achieve complete victory and overthrow the current celestial heavens! You can take all the merits by yourself! Be it me, Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yue, or Celestial Venerable Mu, none of our achievements will be as illustrious as yours! You have accomplished a great feat that we couldn't accomplish in a million years!"
He said loudly, "I can hide all of your past achievements for you! In front of others, you will be a glorious existence who will endure humiliation, bear the infamy, and achieve the final victory in one go! Countless people will praise your contributions, and countless people in the future will admire your achievements. They won't know what you have done in the past! Your past will be erased! As long as you assassinate Celestial Venerable Hao!"
Celestial Venerable Huo stood there motionlessly and suddenly laughed.
Celestial Venerable Yun frowned, and Celestial Venerable Huo's laughter grew louder. His voice shook the canyon and caused the two mountains to collapse in the Dao fire, turning into boiling lava.
"Yun, I can't deny that you are more bewitching than Celestial Venerable Mu."
Celestial Venerable Huo turned around and looked at his face. His voice seemed to have no warmth as it became colder. "However, you guys can't defeat Celestial Venerable Hao at all, you can't defeat the celestial heavens! If I go and assassinate Celestial Venerable Hao, even if I can kill him, I will be killed by his final strike! Your plan is very good, killing two birds with one stone and eliminating the two of us in one go!"
He said mockingly, "After that, you can flatten the celestial heavens in one move, and then you can deal with Founding Emperor, Celestial Venerable Mu, and get rid of them. You will have the power all to yourself! How can these greenhorns be your opponents? You thought very well, very well. Get rid of me, Celestial Venerable Hao, and then get rid of Celestial Venerable Mu and Founding Emperor."
Celestial Venerable Yun gave a long sigh and said bleakly, "You have really changed. You have already betrayed your original intention…"
The Dao fire beside Celestial Venerable Huo suddenly became incomparably vigorous. The flames burned everything, releasing the anger in his heart like a ferocious beast that could swallow everything. "You betrayed me!"
Village Chief looked at Celestial Venerable Huo alertly, feeling slightly anxious.
