Qin Mu's mind was muddled, and his mind was filled with scenes of Founding Emperor facing death.
He was almost unable to gather his spirit and mobilize his scattered vital qi. It was hard for him to gather his gaze and focus it.
It was as if his Dao heart had been concentrated by lightning, and all of his strength was sucked dry.
He raised his hand to grab forward, but he couldn't grab anything.
The Great Overarching Sword Dao Heaven, the Dao Tree, and Founding Emperor turned into nothingness.
The attack of the four young masters of Miluo Palace wasn't targeted at Founding Emperor, but at Celestial Venerable Ling, who was the hardest to kill. Founding Emperor had died for Celestial Venerable Ling, so Founding Emperor naturally had no chance of surviving.
Qin Mu suddenly felt a tearing pain in his heart, but why was it Founding Emperor?
Founding Emperor should have been in the ancestral court, resisting Celestial Venerable Hao's ascension to the Dao. Why would he suddenly appear here to block the death tribulation for Celestial Venerable Ling?
Qin Ye, on the first page of the Qin Family register, was this name. Qin Mu couldn't forget this name.
When he flipped open the Qin Clan register when he was young, he was very proud that his name could be listed on the family register. He was full of respect for Founding Emperor Qin Ye and felt that he was an incomparably majestic and tenacious existence.
Later on, when he knew what Carefree Village was, the Founding Emperor Qin Ye in his heart crumbled. Qin Ye became a person who only cared about profit in his heart, a muddle-headed ruler, a scum who had single-handedly buried Founding Emperor Era and abandoned the people like they were walking on shoes.
Later on, he met the young Qin Ye in the first year of the Dragon Han Era. They fought, but Qin Mu also met a Qin Ye that didn't match his guess.
Qin Ye was calm, shrewd, and didn't show his emotions. He had a remarkable bearing, as if no setback or blow could knock him down.
However, in Qin Mu's heart, he was still full of prejudice against him. He felt that he still had to be responsible for the sufferings of the future generations. He felt that he had changed his original heart over the long years and had become an incapable ruler who only knew how to enjoy life in Carefree Village.
Later on, Qin Mu finally found Carefree Village and entered it. What he saw was the declining will of the older generation and the indulging youths.
Only Qin Ye maintained his Dao heart like the stabilizing needle of Carefree Village, but even he couldn't change the current situation of Carefree Village.
Until Qin Mu's arrival.
Qin Mu had always had a grudge against him, and Qin Ye wanted to borrow his battle to reignite Carefree Village's fighting spirit.
During their battle in Carefree Village, two people with different personalities saw their own shadows on their bodies.
After that battle, Qin Mu was removed from the Qin Family register and became the Celestial Venerable Mu that Founding Emperor had mentioned.
After that, they met many times and would still fight occasionally. However, Qin Mu no longer had any resentment towards him.
In Qin Mu's heart, he still treated himself as a member of the Qin Family and a descendant of Qin Ye. However, he had to protect Eternal Peace.
Celestial Venerable Mu of Eternal Peace couldn't be a descendant of Founding Emperor.
Eternal Peace had to draw a clear line with Carefree Village. Otherwise, Eternal Peace's development would be extremely unfavorable. This didn't just involve the struggle for power, the struggle for the lives of the people, the people's support, and the attitude of the celestial heavens.
Since Eternal Peace could be saved, they couldn't be involved with Carefree Village.
Founding Emperor and Qin Mu maintained the relationship of Dao friends just like that. There was no difference in seniority, no kinship.
However, at this moment, Qin Mu still felt the longing in his Dao heart, the pain of his loved ones dying.
"Why did you suddenly appear…"
Celestial Venerable Hao's figure suddenly appeared in his line of sight, and Qin Mu turned around. The five fingers of his palm moved the space as if he was plucking the strings of a zither that had no traces of movement.
The sound of a zither rang out, and Celestial Venerable Xu's figure vanished. In the next moment, she appeared in front of Celestial Venerable Hao.
Celestial Venerable Hao was astonished and hurriedly retreated.
Qin Mu turned around expressionlessly and whistled towards the golden ship.
On the deck of the World Crossing Golden Ship, Celestial Venerable Xu controlled the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu. Thirty-six celestial palaces appeared behind the head of the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu, forming the complete celestial heavens!
The power of the celestial heavens was too strong, and the divine weapon couldn't last much longer. However, it was enough for Celestial Venerable Xu.
In this short period of time, she could kill Qin Fengqing and the reincarnated Heaven Duke and seize control of Youdu!
At this moment, Qin Fengqing's magic power was rising in a straight line, and he could already be considered a small Celestial Venerable. His magic power was equivalent to a Celestial Venerable on the Emperor's Throne Realm who had cultivated 18 celestial palaces.
However, Qin Fengqing was too immature. No matter if it was his battle methods or battle experience, he was much inferior to her.
The only one that posed a threat to her was Heaven Duke. However, the threat of Heaven Duke came from the power of the fifty heaven path treasures. If she wanted to fight with the perfect celestial heavens' divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu, she would be slightly inferior.
Celestial Venerable Xu was about to kill the two of them when the golden ship suddenly changed direction and gradually accelerated. Celestial Venerable Xu looked over in a hurry and saw the golden ship sailing towards Qin Mu.
At the same time, Qin Mu was also rushing towards the golden ship.
Celestial Venerable Xu didn't hesitate and hurriedly leaped up from the golden ship. The golden ship shone with light, trying to keep her on the ship. The divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu punched out, breaking the golden light. Celestial Venerable Xu stood on the shoulder of the divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu and took the chance to escape.
Qin Mu landed on the golden ship, and his empty gaze moved away from Celestial Venerable Xu's face.
Fear rose in Celestial Venerable Xu's heart, and she didn't dare to go forward.
Suddenly, Celestial Venerable Hao appeared beside her and pulled her away.
Celestial Venerable Ling's figure appeared, and she pointed at nothing.
Qin Mu's gaze landed on Celestial Venerable Hao, and he shifted his gaze away. The golden ship turned around and rushed towards Celestial Venerable Huo.
Over there, Celestial Venerable Huo attacked Lang Wo and Celestial Venerable Yue at the same time.
The golden ship flew over, and Celestial Venerable Huo hurriedly dodged it, flying towards Celestial Venerable Hao.
The three of them stood side by side as they watched Qin Mu bring Celestial Venerable Yue and Lang Wo onto the golden ship.
Celestial Venerable Huo raised his eyebrows and was about to block the golden ship when Celestial Venerable Hao raised his hand and said, "A cornered beast still fights. If we push them too hard, they will fight to the death. Our goal has been achieved, let them go."
Celestial Venerable Huo was slightly stunned and didn't understand.
Celestial Venerable Hao smiled and said, "My original intention was to get rid of Celestial Venerable Ling, but I didn't expect to miss out on a side carriage. Qin Ye is dead."
Celestial Venerable Huo's body trembled violently, and he bowed. "Congratulations, Your Majesty, congratulations!"
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed loudly and flew towards Ancestral God King. Celestial Venerable Xu and Celestial Venerable Huo hurriedly followed him.
The golden ship was still accelerating as it rushed towards Ancestral God King. Celestial Venerable Hao's consciousness immediately fluctuated, informing Ancestral God King to avoid it. Ancestral God King was about to kill Celestial Venerable You, but he hurriedly dodged when he heard Celestial Venerable Ling's words. He then saw Celestial Venerable Ling's figure appear where he was standing, and he broke out in cold sweat.
He hurried to Celestial Venerable Hao's side and whispered, "Brother Hao… Your Majesty, what happened?"
"Qin Ye is dead!"
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed loudly and looked around proudly. "Qin Ye is a thorn in my side. Now that he's dead, the overall situation is set. Bandit Mu no longer has any desire to fight. He is the backbone of the traitor. He knows that after Qin Ye dies, he will definitely lose this battle, so he's trying his best to protect the others. He has already lost his motivation. Youdu has fallen into my hands, and no one in this world can shake the foundation of the celestial heavens."
Ancestral God King's heart trembled violently, and he knelt down on one knee. He cupped his fists with both hands and raised them high above his head. "Peace of Youdu will be a great day for Your Majesty to ascend the throne! I'm willing to be the first emperor emeritus, and I'm willing to show my benevolence. Please abdicate!"
Celestial Venerable Huo also hurriedly bowed and said, "Your Majesty has great talent and great vision. You have quelled a million years of turmoil and restored peace to the world. Such achievements have never been seen since the creation of the universe! Your Majesty has ascended the throne and conformed to the heavens. I'm willing to be a memorial person!"
Celestial Venerable Xu hesitated for a moment before bowing as well. "Once His Majesty ascends to the throne, Grand Imperial Sire will definitely be overjoyed and give up his position!"
When the two ancient gods of Tai Chi saw the golden ship flying over, they immediately abandoned their Taishi and came to Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest. When they saw the three Celestial Venerables kneeling down, they couldn't help but look at each other in the eyes. They bowed in unison and said, "We and Dao Brother Tai Chu are both the five Grand Supreme, and we are willing to go forward and be a lobbyist. Dao Brother Tai Chu is sensible and will definitely submit."
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed loudly and looked at Qin Mu on the golden ship. He said leisurely, "Celestial Venerable Mu, do you see the general trend? Today, the general trend of the world is to submit to me. If you resist, it will be futile! Instead, you will implicate the human race and the lifeforms after the beginning. When the nest is overturned, there will be no eggs left. Do you want all the people in the world to die in your hands?"
Qin Mu stood at the bow of the ship in a daze and stood opposite him.
"Youdu has already fallen into my hands."
Celestial Venerable Hao spread out his five fingers and gripped them tightly. He said with a smile, "With the Grand Emperor beheaded, the Grand Primordium will surrender, and Founding Emperor will fall. You guys have no chance of winning."
The golden ship was in an uproar.
Heaven Duke hurriedly said, "Celestial Venerable Mu, Founding Emperor is really…"
Blood leaked from the corner of Celestial Venerable You's mouth, and his face was pale. Divine King Lang Wo was silent, and Celestial Venerable Yue looked at Celestial Venerable Ling.
Celestial Venerable Ling nodded gently.
Qin Fengqing sat on the ground in a daze as though he had lost all his strength. He suddenly raised his head and said in a wooden voice, "Little brother, I want to go home. Send me back, I miss mother…"
Qin Mu didn't move. He loosened his grip on the hilt of the Calamity Sword and tightened it again, but he let go again.
"Does Celestial Venerable Mu think you can still turn the tables?"
Celestial Venerable Hao said with a smile, "You know better than me what's in the Ruins of End. When my mother returns, all of you will have no way to survive. With help from the right path, without help from the wrong path, if you continue to fight, all of you will be buried here. Celestial Venerable Mu, you are someone who understands the times. If you die in Youdu, the consequences will be the descent of the prehistoric successors. I believe you aren't willing to see this, right? Don't worry, as long as you surrender, I won't let the prehistoric successors descend."
He smiled and said, "I will recruit you. As long as you surrender, I will confer you the title of ten Celestial Venerables. Not only will Eternal Peace survive, but I will also not touch Carefree Village. However, if you dare to say no, Eternal Peace and Carefree Village will be turned into ashes!"
Celestial Venerable Huo raised his eyebrows. "Your Majesty, they are rebels, how can they be recruited?"
Celestial Venerable Hao laughed and said, "Minister Huo, am I that kind of emperor with no magnanimity?"
Celestial Venerable Huo didn't dare to say anything.
Suddenly, the golden ship sailed away and vanished into the darkness.
Celestial Venerable Huo let out a sigh of relief.
Celestial Venerable Hao smiled and said, "He will head to the celestial heavens. He is an understanding person."
He raised his head and heaved a sigh of relief before slowly opening his arms.
"This world is finally mine!"
The World Crossing Golden Ship's speed became faster as it sailed through the dark Youdu. Because Earth Count's corporeal body was disintegrating continuously, the space in Youdu was also disintegrating continuously.
"Wherever I am, Youdu is!"
Earth Count's corporeal body split into huge pieces of land that floated in Youdu. Youdu also split into pieces and was no longer a whole body.
Some Youdu fragments overlapped with a few heavens, some overlapped with the Primordial Realm, and some connected to the ancestral court.
Everyone stood at the bow of the ship in silence.
With Founding Emperor's death, there was no hope for a comeback.
Suddenly, Heaven Duke saw the body of Earth Count floating on a landmass, and he hurriedly stretched his hand out to pull him onto the ship.
He wanted Qin Mu to summon Earth Count's soul, but he didn't say anything.
Because Earth Count had acted on his own initiative, Founding Emperor's death had resulted in this great defeat. By asking Qin Mu to revive Earth Count, it made them, the ancient gods, seem too selfish.
"I will revive Earth Count."
Qin Mu's eyeballs rolled, and he suddenly said, "However, Celestial Venerable Yun is still in the Ultimate Void, fighting with Tai Chu. We should go there first… I need to calm down, calm down…"
He sat down powerlessly and suddenly felt the world spinning around him. He collapsed on his back.
"Give him a break."
Celestial Venerable Yue said in a low voice, "It shouldn't be difficult for me to send Celestial Venerable Ling to the Ultimate Void and scare Tai Chu away."
Celestial Venerable Ling nodded gently.
Qin Mu heard her words and slowly closed his eyes. His vision was pitch black, and two streams of tears flowed from the corners of his eyes to his temples, soaking the hair behind his ears.
Was there no hope?
Yes, there was no hope left, he thought to himself.
Celestial Venerable Yue led everyone away. She knew that Qin Mu didn't want anyone to see his weak side, and they didn't want to see it either.
Qin Mu's mind was muddled, and his mind was filled with scenes of Founding Emperor facing death.
