Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1613 - A Good Dog

The moment he said that, all the Celestial Venerables in the Numinous Sky Hall fell silent. Their gazes flickered as they waited to see what Celestial Venerable Huo would do.

Celestial Venerable Huo raised his cup and drank it in one gulp. "Your Majesty, you must be joking. How would I dare to take half of the world? I only want half of Eternal Peace. I don't want anything else."

Celestial Emperor Hao revealed a smile and met Celestial Venerable Huo's gaze.

"Hahahaha!" The two of them suddenly laughed loudly.

The other Celestial Venerables also laughed, and their laughter gradually died down. Celestial Emperor Hao smiled and said, "Ancestral God King, do you want Eternal Peace?"

Ancestral God King bowed slightly and said with a smile, "I'm under Your Majesty's orders to guard Xuandu. Just Xuandu alone covers the thousands of worlds in the universe and has a vast area, making it hard for me to manage it. I don't want it."

Celestial Emperor Hao looked at Celestial Venerable Xu, who shook his head. "Your Majesty, I'm the same as Ancestral God King. I don't dare to hope for the wealth of Eternal Peace. I just want to take care of Youdu."

Emperor Hao Tian smiled. "In that case, only I and Minister Huo can split Eternal Peace equally."

Tai Chu smiled and said, "Please wait, Your Majesty."

The Numinous Sky Hall was silent. All eyes were on Tai Chu.

Tai Chu said with a smile, "Back when we were still the ten Celestial Venerables, we had the same interests and benefits. Now that we are united, we naturally can't act as we did in the past. The entire universe belongs to His Majesty. However, His Majesty was able to ascend the throne because of the support of his old brother. Since His Majesty has already conquered the world, he should be rewarded for his contributions and appease his old brother. We can't let his heart turn cold."

Emperor Hao Tian said with a smile, "Grand Imperial Sire's words are reasonable. I have just taken the position of Celestial Emperor, so I'm not as skilled as you. How do you think Eternal Peace should be divided?"

Tai Chu continued, "It's just rewarding based on merit. No matter if it's the battle of Xuandu or the battle of Youdu, the old brothers have contributed a lot. They are also risking their lives, and there are even a few Dao friends who have died. Those who are still alive may be successful, but they also have to take care of the orphans and widows. Eternal Peace's wealth is only slightly less than that of the celestial heavens, so we shall follow the rules of the past. One point is enough, and it won't be a huge loss to His Majesty."

The other Celestial Venerables didn't say much and just listened quietly.

Emperor Hao Tian said solemnly, "You are right, Grand Imperial Sire."

Tai Chu smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable Huo, the human race, and the human race have made an agreement with His Majesty. Celestial Venerable Xu, Ancestral God King, the ancient god of taiji, as well as me, the Grand Imperial Sire, and even East Deity Qing Long are all ministers that have done meritorious deeds. In addition, Celestial Venerable Mu has submitted to us and is crying in surrender, saying that he wants to seek a place to live in seclusion to pray for His Majesty. All of this needs to be discussed."

He laughed and said, "Celestial Venerable Xu and Ancestral God King don't dare to take Eternal Peace, but we will still get a share of the wealth. Eternal Peace is so rich, and there are so many manufacturing factories, so many algebra experts, and so many experts in forging. If we don't get rid of him, what if we become a bunch of rebels again in the future? It's better to get a share."

Emperor Hao Tian muttered to himself and nodded repeatedly. He smiled and said, "What Grand Imperial Sire said is reasonable, reasonable…"

He took a glance at Son of Heaven Yin, and Son of Heaven Yin braced himself and said, "Grand Imperial Sire, I also have merit, and I also want a share."

Celestial Venerable Huo said coldly, "Son of Heaven Yin, you didn't even show your head during the battle of Youdu, what credit do you have?"

Celestial Emperor Hao said with a smile, "Yin Chaojin is a Celestial Venerable, after all. Since she's a Celestial Venerable, it's fine for her to have a share of the loot. Otherwise, wouldn't her reputation be for naught? Ancestral God King and Celestial Venerable Xu, there's no need for the two of you to stand on ceremony. Eternal Peace does indeed have a share of both of you."

Ancestral God King and Celestial Venerable Xu looked at each other and bowed. "Many thanks for Your Majesty's grace."

Celestial Emperor Hao said with a smile, "Originally, there were ten Celestial Venerables in the celestial heavens. Now, there are only Celestial Venerable Xu, Ancestral God King, Celestial Venerable Huo, Grand Imperial Sire, Son of Heaven Yin, and me. It looks like we need to replenish our fresh blood. Now that Son of Heaven Yin has become Celestial Venerable Yin, White Deity, Red Deity, and Green Deity can also become the candidates for the ten Celestial Venerables."

Tai Chu smiled and said, "White Deity, Red Deity, and Green Deity are still lacking in character. Your Majesty, the ancient god of taiji can be a Celestial Venerable."

Emperor Hao Tian played with his wine cup and laughed. "I almost forgot. Dao brothers have indeed put in a lot of effort in the battle of Youdu and Xuandu, and you can be classified as Celestial Venerables. In that case, why don't we add Celestial Venerable Mu? In that case, there will be nine Celestial Venerables."

Celestial Venerable Huo protested, "Your Majesty, how can a traitor be a Celestial Venerable?"

Celestial Emperor Hao said with a smile, "Could Minister Huo have other candidates?"

Celestial Venerable Huo said, "Celestial Venerable Mu is a traitor. If he is included in the ranks of the ten Celestial Venerables, the other Celestial Venerables won't be convinced, let alone me! Furthermore, there are people among the ten Celestial Venerables. Isn't God Emperor Lang Xuan still around?"

The wine cup in Emperor Hao Tian's hand was crushed, and he said with a smile, "God Emperor Lang Xuan died at the hands of Celestial Venerable Mu…"

"God Emperor Lang Xuan is truly blessed. He's still alive."

Celestial Venerable Huo was suddenly full of smiles, making the mask on his face look terrifying. "Your Majesty, have you forgotten that God Emperor Lang Xuan has a clone in Eternal Peace? Heaven took pity on me, I have already rescued his clone and didn't die in the hands of that thief."

The wine cup in Emperor Hao Tian's hand melted and turned into golden liquid that flowed down. He suddenly laughed and said, "Well done! Well done! Minister Huo is loyal to his country and is a supreme loyal subject. As expected of the person I value the most!"

Celestial Venerable Huo said fearfully, "Your Majesty is too kind."

Grand Primordium's gaze flickered, and he laughed loudly. "Celestial Venerable Huo is indeed incomparably loyal!"

Celestial Emperor Hao snorted and said, "East Deity Qing Long has come to surrender, so he can be included as a Celestial Venerable. Celestial Venerable Huo shouldn't have any objections, right?"

Celestial Venerable Huo smiled. "I have no objections to East Deity Qing Long being a Celestial Venerable."

Emperor Hao Tian clenched his fists tightly, and his fists slowly stretched out again. He said with a smile, "Eternal Peace's benefits are huge, so we don't have to argue about how to split them. Just leave it to the children below to discuss. Today is my ascension ceremony, so let's not talk about these troublesome matters. I shall enjoy myself with my beloved subjects and not return until I'm drunk!"

The Numinous Sky Hall was filled with toasts and laughter.

"Old Huo's rebelliousness is about to pierce through the sky!"

After the celebration, Celestial Emperor Hao sent everyone off, leaving only Son of Heaven Yin, Celestial Venerable Xu, and Ancestral God King behind. He couldn't help but fly into a rage and shout, "He's not waiting for a good price, he knows I can't give him a good price, so he sold it to the Grand Primordium!"

Son of Heaven Yin didn't dare to speak.

Celestial Venerable Xu and Ancestral God King looked at each other, and Ancestral God King said, "Your Majesty, Celestial Venerable Huo is an alien race, not one of us."

Emperor Hao Tian let out a shaky breath and walked around quickly. He sneered and said, "He still thinks that this is the past. He thinks that I can't do without him. He's too impudent! He dared to keep Lang Xuan, but I can't tolerate him anymore. He went to sell Lang Xuan to Tai Chu again! What guts!"

Celestial Venerable Xu said, "He has joined forces with Grand Primordium and has the help of the ancient god of taiji. In a few years, Lang Xuan will return to his peak, and he will probably be able to fight on par with His Majesty."

Celestial Venerable Hao snorted angrily, then smiled. "My good dog bit me back. Good, very good. However, I was prepared, Mother!"

Mistress Yuanmu responded lazily from behind the screen and said with a smile, "Hao'er, Tai Chu is nothing to worry about, you can rest assured."

Celestial Venerable Xu and Ancestral God King were frightened. They looked at each other in silence.

Celestial Venerable Hao said with a smile, "Minister Huo, it's good that you are rebellious. I was worried that you wouldn't dare to rebel. After all, you are my greatest contributor, and I have no reason to kill you to prevent the hearts of my ministers from going cold. But now, you have forced me to make a move."

Tai Chu returned to Da An Palace. Da An Palace was where he, the Grand Imperial Sire, stayed after he retired. The so-called Da An, after abdicating, no longer involved in the power struggle, was Da An.

At this moment, in Da An Palace, Tai Chu, Taiji, and Celestial Venerable Huo sat down. Tai Chu smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable spoke up for justice, I'm impressed."

Celestial Venerable Huo shook his head and said, "It's just that Celestial Emperor can't give me any more benefits, which is why I joined the Grand Imperial Sire."

Tai Chu laughed loudly. "Hao'er won't only not give you any benefits when he becomes the emperor, he'll even take back the benefits he gave you in the past! How are you going to convince everyone by doing this? You'll only disappoint those who have contributed."

Celestial Venerable Huo sneered and said, "He can't give me any benefits, and he even wants to take back the benefits he gave me in the past. How could there be such a good thing? Ancestral God King occupies Xuandu, Celestial Venerable Xu occupies Youdu. Even if Son of Heaven Yin is a dog that only knows how to lick his feet, he can still get the position of a Celestial Venerable. Youdu is split into half! I fought so hard for him, and in the end, he even wants to take back Southern Heaven! If I don't rebel against him, the heavens will not tolerate it!"

Tai Chu nodded and said, "If you work with me, you can protect South Heaven, and you can also divide the benefits of Eternal Peace. No matter who falls into Eternal Peace's hands, they can't fall into the hands of Emperor Hao Tian. If they fall into his hands, we will never be able to make a comeback!"

Celestial Venerable Huo nodded, and his gaze landed on the two ancient gods of taiji. "He has the support of the three young masters and four young masters. I'm afraid we won't have a chance of winning."

"Third young master supporting him is just a temporary measure."

Tai Chu smiled and said, "His calculations are very precise. If we don't let the three young masters and four young masters descend, they will definitely be dissatisfied. If they are dissatisfied, it will be our chance."

Celestial Venerable Huo let out a sigh of relief.

The two ancient gods of Tai Chi looked at each other and said, "Celestial Venerable Hao will definitely lay his hands on Dao Friend Huo. It will be hard for him to tolerate you, so you have to be careful."

Celestial Venerable Huo said indifferently, "We are both the Seven Celestial Venerables of the Dragon Han Celestial Venerable, existences that have opened their realms. He is indeed stronger than me, but it won't be easy for him to kill me. Leave God Emperor Lang Xuan to the two of you. When can he recover to his peak state?"

The ancient god of the sun smiled. "In less than ten years, God Emperor Lang Xuan will definitely surpass him!"

Celestial Venerable Huo laughed loudly and bowed. "I have yet to congratulate Dao brothers on becoming Celestial Venerables!"

The two ancient gods exchanged pleasantries, and Celestial Venerable Huo stood up to bid farewell. Tai Chu personally sent him out of the Great Peace Palace.

"Your Majesty trusts Celestial Venerable Huo?" Goddess of Moon suddenly asked.

"I don't."

Tai Chu shook his head. "Celestial Venerable Huo betrayed too many people. When Celestial Venerable Yu died, he was afraid of power, and the first person he betrayed was himself. He betrayed his own heart and submitted to Hao'er. After that, he betrayed his close friend Celestial Venerable Yun. After Celestial Venerable Yun died, he betrayed his own race. Now, he betrayed Hao'er and joined me. How do I know he won't betray me in the future?"

Taiji said, "For people like Celestial Venerable Huo, use it if you can, kill if you can't."

Tai Chu smiled and said, "I think so too."

Eternal Peace, Dao Academy.

When Yu Chen'zi returned from the celestial heavens, he told Qin Mu about his encounters in the celestial heavens.

Qin Mu listened quietly and asked about the details from time to time. Yu Chenzi explained everything one by one, not daring to leave out anything.

After a long time, Qin Mu smiled and said, "Celestial Venerable Huo is going to die."

Yu Chenzi said, "When I left the celestial heavens, I heard news that Celestial Emperor Hao was preparing to reward meritorious ministers. Among them, Celestial Venerable Huo contributed the most, and Celestial Emperor Hao wanted to confer him the title of Heaven's Equal, Celestial Venerable Deity. In the past, Celestial Venerable Huo was merely a sovereign, and he was unrivaled in the heavens. This time, he's a Heaven's Equal, on par with Celestial Emperor!"

Qin Mu said with a smile, "Emperor Clear Sky can't give him any benefits, so he can only give him a title. When that happens, he won't be far from death."

Yu Chenzi said with a smile, "That was also Imperial Preceptor sending God Emperor Lang Xuan over, it was just right."

Qin Mu laughed loudly and stood up. "I need to personally take a look at Celestial Venerable Huo's death to send this old friend off!"

He smiled and said, "I'm still a little worried that Emperor Hao Tian isn't thorough enough. After all, Celestial Venerable Huo was also the Dragon Han Nine Celestial Venerables back then. He has never revealed his trump cards before."

His gaze was fierce as he hid himself.

Yu Chen'zi smiled and bowed. "I await Imperial Preceptor's good news!"

Qin Mu took out a piece of ordinary wood and sculpted it into a sheath. He placed the Calamity Sword back into the sheath and walked out of Wen Dao Academy.

On the World Crossing Golden Ship, the round Tai Shi and Qin Fengqing, who was already in the form of a youth, were acting suspiciously. They scouted the path on the ship. When they saw him on the ship, Tai Shi hurriedly said, "Celestial Venerable Mu, this place is haunted!"
