Qin Mu grunted, but he didn't retort.
He and Qin Fengqing were originally the same person, but Qin Fengqing was born early and was born from the consciousness of the devil nature of Youdu. He was born evil and was the most famous devil king in Youdu. Countless Youdu devil gods trembled in fear when they heard his name.
He was the second consciousness that was born in Qin Fengqing's body after Earth Count sealed him.
All along, everyone knew that Qin Fengqing was the incarnation of the devil qi, devil nature, and devil nature of Youdu. He gathered the negative emotions of all those who had died since they were born, so he was naturally fierce and evil.
In the past, Earth Count and Heaven Duke thought so, and Qin Mu thought so too.
Heaven Duke and Earth Count even wanted to help Qin Mu refine Qin Fengqing and make him the true Son of Youdu.
It wasn't until later that Heaven Duke and Earth Count realized that Qin Fengqing's evilness and ruthlessness was just an instinct. His heart was still as pure as a baby's, without any impurities.
On the contrary, it was the second personality Qin Mu that they were more optimistic about that was an extremely dangerous fellow. He was evil, cunning, treacherous, sinister, and had poor self-control!
When Qin Mu mastered the devil qi, devil path, and devil nature in his body, he couldn't maintain his innocence like Qin Fengqing. Instead, he became even more dangerous and out of control. The danger he posed was countless times greater than Qin Fengqing.
At that time, there were many people fighting over the identity of Qin Fengqing and Youdu's Son of God. No matter if it was the four marquises of Youdu, Son of Heaven Yin, or the gods and devils of the celestial heavens, their performance when facing the devil nature of Youdu was even worse than Qin Mu's.
The battle for Son of Youdu had long ended. When Heaven Duke and Earth Count saw through everything, they didn't think of helping Qin Mu refine Qin Fengqing. Instead, they guided Qin Mu to discover Qin Fengqing's kind side.
Earth Count and Qin Mu were also subtly trying to guide Qin Fengqing to an orderly side, trying to let him understand the rules.
"Brother, you didn't feel the power of the Life and Death Book?"
Qin Mu asked, "What did you see in the Life and Death Book?"
"This is the Life and Death Book?"
Qin Fengqing flipped the Life and Death Book over and looked at it a few times. "I can only see countless lifeforms in this world. Their lifespans, the emotions that come from their souls, the changes in their corporeal bodies, and these delicious gods and devil gods…"
Qin Mu guided him patiently, "You don't want to control them and eat them?"
Celestial Venerable You felt a chill down his spine.
Qin Fengqing scratched his head and said, "Why do I have to do this? They only need to sign the Pact of Little Earth Count with me. After they make a mistake, I can eat them. It's not good to eat too much at once…"
Qin Mu saw that he wasn't going to go onto the path and continued to tempt him. "Once you grasp the Life and Death Book, you can control the life and death of these lifeforms. You can let whoever you want die, you can let them die whenever you want, you can let them die however you want them to die, you can let them die however many you want them to die…"
Celestial Venerable You hurriedly poked his waist and said in a low voice, "Celestial Venerable Mu, are you trying to lure him into grasping the Life and Death Book, or are you trying to tempt him to fall like you?"
Qin Mu came to a realization and hurriedly shut his mouth.
Qin Fengqing examined the Life and Death Book again and threw it to the side. He shook his head and said, "Those stupid little things are clearly courting death, dying all kinds of ways like a bad brother, so why do they still need this thing? This thing is Earth Count's cleaning cloth, smelly and hard."
This time, even Celestial Venerable Ling was astonished. She suddenly said, "Little Earth Count is indeed the best candidate to control the Life and Death Book."
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable You nodded repeatedly. Qin Fengqing was the devil nature of Youdu, and the Life and Death Book couldn't control him or tempt him. On the other hand, he could unleash the power of the Life and Death Book, and at the same time, his heart was incomparably pure. This point surpassed Qin Mu by countless times and also surpassed Celestial Venerable You.
Celestial Venerable You let out a shaky breath and picked up the Life and Death Book. He solemnly handed it to Qin Fengqing and bowed. "Earth Count, please return to your position!"
His heart was surging with emotions. Today was a day that could be remembered in the annals of history, the day where new and old Count Earth would replace each other. This made his expression turn solemn and dignified.
Qin Fengqing stuffed the Life and Death Book to him with a slightly terrified expression. "Little brother, I thought you brought me here for something important. If there's nothing else, I'm going back!"
After saying that, he hurriedly walked out. Celestial Venerable You hurriedly grabbed him and said, "You can't leave! Today is the day you are crowned as Earth Count. Only you can suppress the devil nature of the Life and Death Book. If you leave, where am I going to find another Earth Count?"
Qin Fengqing struggled to break free from him and ran out, heading straight for the paper boat.
Celestial Venerable You immediately gave chase and saw Qin Fengqing trying his best to shrink his body and tunnel into the paper boat.
Celestial Venerable You went forward and picked up the Life and Death Book. He bowed and said, "Earth Count, please return to your position!"
"I don't want to!"
Qin Fengqing waved his hand and sent the Life and Death Book flying. He looked at Qin Mu in fear and shouted, "Brother, quickly come over and send me home! I don't know the way! I don't want this Life and Death Book, take it away!"
He shrunk his body, and it was still several times larger than the paper boat. He stood on the small boat, but he didn't know how to activate it.
Qin Mu didn't go forward to help.
The Life and Death Book flew back, and Celestial Venerable You was still holding onto the Life and Death Book. Qin Fengqing looked at him in horror as he walked closer to him. He shouted loudly and jumped off the ship to escape.
Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit flew out and forced him back.
Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit was the number one in the world, and it was vast like another Earth Count. It was known as the number one primordial spirit in the world. Even though Qin Fengqing's abilities were extremely high, he was still much inferior to him.
Qin Fengqing ran in all directions, but he couldn't escape. The fear on his face grew more. Suddenly, he changed his direction and tried his best to escape towards Earth Count's third eye.
He also had three eyes, and at this moment, the markings of butterfly wings spread out from his three eyes as tears poured out from his eyes.
He shouted, "Big fella! Wake up! Run!"
He rushed towards Earth Count with all his might and shouted at the top of his lungs, "Run, big fella! They want to kill you!"
Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit chased after him and blocked him. Qin Fengqing suddenly turned into devil qi and broke through Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit palm, continuing to escape towards Earth Count's third eye. He cried out, "Run, big fella, my bad brother is coming to kill you!"
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling walked over, and Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit grabbed him again, his five fingers transforming into a cage.
Qin Fengqing frantically hammered his fingers. Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit utilized magic power to trap him, but even so, his five fingers were still continuously breaking apart!
"Big fella, wake up!"
Qin Fengqing grabbed the finger of Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit and shook it with all his might. He shouted at Earth Count, "Wake up! Bad brother is really going to kill you, I can feel it!"
Earth Count stood in Youdu, vast and boundless. The horns on his head stood tall, and the lava river flowed endlessly.
His three eyes opened up, and Youdu devil qi poured into them continuously. Youdu Devil Dao was also pouring into his body, preparing for the battle of life and death in the future.
The current Earth Count was already controlled by the will of the Great Dao of Youdu, just like Heaven Duke back then.
Even though Earth Count could hear Qin Fengqing's shouts, the Great Dao of Youdu couldn't hear them.
Qin Fengqing was unable to break free from Celestial Venerable You's control. He wailed like a child and kept calling Earth Count to wake up.
He was terrified.
His Dao heart was pure, and his understanding of the Great Dao of Youdu was extremely deep. Just as Celestial Venerable You could sense Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling's killing intent towards Earth Count, he could also sense it.
When Celestial Venerable You held the Life and Death Book and told him that he was going to be crowned as Earth Count, he realized the time of Earth Count's death.
Even though he said the big fella could eat for many years, when he realized Earth Count was about to die, he still couldn't suppress the sorrow in his heart and wanted to wake Earth Count up.
He was incomparably close to the Great Dao of Youdu, and no one told him that Earth Count's consciousness had been replaced by the consciousness of the Great Dao of Youdu. However, he had sensed this, so he called Earth Count to wake up.
No one could understand his feelings for Earth Count. Earth Count was like a father, a brother, and a harbor that he could rely on.
Behind Qin Mu's head, the Great Dao of Reincarnation continued to revolve, blocking out the senses of the Great Dao of Youdu. Together with Celestial Venerable Ling, they passed through Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit and walked towards Earth Count's third eye.
Qin Fengqing looked at their backs in fear and shrieked, "Big fella, wake up quickly! Little brother, bad brother, let big fella go. I'll be your little brother and you'll be your big brother, don't go!"
"Brother, you should grow up." Qin Mu turned back and smiled at the big baby in Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit.
"I hate you!"
Qin Fengqing shouted at him and said miserably, "If you dare to touch that big fella, I'll hate you forever! Come back!"
Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling walked to Earth Count's third eye and were swallowed by the divine light. They vanished.
Qin Fengqing sat on the ground in dejection, and tears flowed down his face. Celestial Venerable You's corporeal body brought the golden Life and Death Book into the palm.
He held the Life and Death Book with both hands and walked towards Qin Fengqing.
Qin Fengqing's three eyes were filled with fear as he watched Qin Mu walk towards him. His legs kept pushing against his palms as he retreated. He shook his head and said, "I don't want it, don't give it to me! I'll die if I accept the big guy, I don't want it."
Celestial Venerable You walked in front of him and raised the Life and Death Book above his head.
"I don't want it! Take it away!"
Qin Fengqing slapped Celestial Venerable You and the Life and Death Book away. With a loud boom, Celestial Venerable You crashed into the finger of his primordial spirit, and his huge finger shook.
Blood leaked out from the corner of Celestial Venerable You's mouth and slid down. His primordial spirit was strong, but his corporeal body wasn't.
Celestial Venerable You walked to Qin Fengqing step by step and raised the Life and Death Book above his head.
Qin Fengqing sent him flying again, but he still walked back with the Life and Death Book.
In Earth Count's third eye, Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling walked into the sacred hall together. Earth Count's primordial spirit stood there, controlled by the Great Dao of Youdu.
Behind Qin Mu's head, the Great Dao of Reincarnation spun like a wheel, protecting Celestial Venerable Ling.
Celestial Venerable Ling took a step forward and came in front of Earth Count's primordial spirit.
Qin Mu looked up at this god that controlled countless lives. His voice was deep and powerful.
"Dao brother, today is the day you transcend. Your primordial spirit will shatter and your three souls will become nothingness. After you die, I will use all my power to restore your three souls and seven spirits, allowing you to be reborn into Ah Chou!"
At the same time, in the palm of Celestial Venerable You's primordial spirit, Celestial Venerable You knelt down on one knee and raised the Life and Death Book.
"Qin Fengqing, today will be crowned as the king of the dark world!"
"You will become the ruler of Youdu, making the world of the dead orderly. Youdu will become your territory, and the undead will become your army!"
"You will rule the netherworld of countless worlds, and countless living beings will sign a contract with you the moment they are born!"
"You will rule over death, punish evil, advocate good, and be impartial!"
"There is no justice in the world of the living, but there must be justice in the world after death. You will give justice to all living beings!"
"The lava of hell will become your blood, and the heavens of death will become your horns. The celestial river of this universe will flow to Youdu and transform into your whip to drive away all evil!"
Qin Fengqing's body trembled, and he collapsed to his knees.
At this moment, he felt that the big fellow who had taken care of him was dead. The Earth Count who had looked after him like an elder and taught him like a father and brother had his soul extinguished.
Youdu suddenly lost its order, and only incomparably terrifying light burst forth from Earth Count's third eye, lighting up the entire Youdu.
Earth Count died, dying at the hands of Qin Mu and Celestial Venerable Ling. He died silently just like that.
The Great Dao of Youdu was also crumbling and dissipating.
Celestial Venerable You placed the Life and Death Book in his hands.
"From today onwards, you are the world of Youdu…"
Qin Mu grunted, but he didn't retort.
