"So it's the new Celestial Venerable Qing Long."
Celestial Venerable Huo looked at East Deity Qing Long who was walking over. He was clearly in a good mood and looked around curiously.
"Celestial Venerable Qing Long, you used to be East Deity and control the East Pole. Now that you are a Celestial Venerable, the East Pole will be under the control of Celestial Emperor Hao."
Celestial Venerable Huo said indifferently, "Now, you have nothing and the title of Celestial Venerable. Do you think it's worth it?"
East Deity Qing Long laughed and said, "Now that I have a life, it's worth it. The East Pole, the East Pole Holy Land, leave it to Your Majesty. If Your Majesty doesn't worry about me, I won't die. In the past, when I formed an alliance with Celestial Venerable Mu, I couldn't do anything to him. He still lost. For my life, this is the only path I can take."
Celestial Venerable Huo revealed a look of disappointment and shook his head. "Celestial Venerable Mu has allies like you ancient gods, so it's no wonder he lost. You guys didn't help much and only pulled him back. Without you ancient gods, Celestial Venerable Mu might not have lost."
East Deity Qing Long smiled. "Without Celestial Venerable Huo, Celestial Venerable Mu might not have lost."
The two of them looked at each other in disgust.
At this moment, a group of men and horses beat gongs and drums as they carried a coffin over. An elder in his sixties was sitting in the coffin, and he was dressed in red and green. He was full of joy as he cupped his hands to the people around him, thanking them profusely.
This group of people came to the front of Celestial Venerable Huo and East Deity Qing Long. When they saw that they were blocking the way, they stopped.
East Deity Qing Long picked up the elder in the coffin and weighed him in his hand. He sniffed at him before putting him down.
When the elder saw his strange appearance, his voice boomed like a bell. "High God, please eat!"
East Deity Qing Long shook his head and said, "You are a little skinny, and you are too old. Celestial Venerable Huo, what do you think about forty years old? You humans can get married when you are in your teens, give birth when you are twenty, and have a grandchild when you are forty years old. The taste is just right, we can offer it to the half-god ancient gods."
Celestial Venerable Huo looked at him expressionlessly.
East Deity Qing Long's body was huge, and he squatted down. He looked at this group of people and said with a smile, "Celestial Venerable Huo isn't speaking, so you guys talk. Tell me, do my words make sense?"
Those people immediately put down their coffins and kowtowed to the ground. They said in unison, "Old master is right! It's settled then!"
East Deity Qing Long glanced at Celestial Venerable Huo and suddenly smiled. "Forty years old is still too early. How about thirty? What do you guys think?"
Those people said one after another, "Old master is right. It's settled then."
East Deity Qing Long took another glance at Celestial Venerable Huo and chuckled. "The qi and blood of a thirty-year-old mortal is starting to wither. How about twenty? You humans can get married before twenty and have children. After you have children, you can offer yourself to the ancient gods and half-gods."
Those people hesitated, and the elder in the coffin said with a trembling voice, "High God Old Master, twenty years old is too young. Could you please extend your lifespan by a few years and raise the child before offering it to Old Master?"
East Deity smiled. "Do you have the right to choose? No. Do you have the power to resist? No. Since you don't have the power or authority, it's decided."
Below, those young people were wailing as if they had lost their parents.
"I'll fight it out with you!"
The elder climbed out of the coffin and rushed towards East Deity. He punched and kicked, but he was weak and didn't even itch.
East Deity Qing Long didn't mind. The dragon scales on his feet flashed with a cold light, and the elder turned into ashes.
When the youths carrying the coffin saw this, they all stood up silently and turned to leave. None of them said they would take revenge for that elder.
"He accepted it so quickly?"
East Deity Qing Long was astonished, and he said with a smile, "Celestial Venerable Huo, you have to teach me. Your experience of enslaving Southern Heaven has spread to the tens of thousands of worlds. Why would His Majesty need to worry about Celestial Venerable Mu? In the future, no one will rebel!"
Celestial Venerable Huo sneered. "I'm doing this to protect the human race. The human race is weak, and they aren't a match for the half-gods and ancient gods. This is the only way for the human race to survive. From the Dragon Han Era until now, only the people of Southern Heaven have lived a rich life and aren't worried about extermination."
"Isn't Eternal Peace also living well?"
East Deity Qing Long didn't mind and smiled. "The humans of the other worlds weren't wiped out?"
Celestial Venerable Huo said coldly, "The humans of the Primordial Realm have experienced the Dragon Han Calamity, Crimson Light Calamity, High Emperor Calamity, Founding Emperor Calamity, and Eternal Peace Calamity. When have they not nearly been wiped out? Every time, they have to experience countless pains to survive. As for me, Southern Heaven…"
"The Fifth Calamity that you mentioned seems to have made your move every time. You are always the most ruthless."
East Deity Qing Long saw that he wanted to refute, so he waved his hand and smiled. "I'm not here to argue with you about this. Celestial Venerable Huo, you have offended His Majesty."
Celestial Venerable Huo laughed loudly and glanced at him. "So, Celestial Emperor Hao sent you here to die?"
East Deity Qing Long was full of smiles as he said leisurely, "South Deity Zhu Que was killed in her own sacred ground by Celestial Venerable Huo. I'm far from the East Pole, so how could I be a match for Celestial Venerable Huo? Luckily, Celestial Venerable Huo has a weakness, so His Majesty even sent helpers."
Just as he said that, Son of Heaven Yin walked out from the shadows and bowed. "Yin Chaojin pays his respects to Celestial Venerable Huo."
Celestial Venerable Huo couldn't help but laugh when he saw him.
"Yin Chaojin, Celestial Venerable Yin?"
As he laughed, his gaze was filled with mockery. "You dare to come? Does Emperor Hao Tian want to send Celestial Venerable Long? You new Celestial Venerables are all a bunch of trash!"
Son of Heaven Yin had a smile on his face. "Celestial Venerable Huo, your attainments in the soul are too low, and you left behind a huge flaw. Hence, His Majesty ordered me to come and harvest Brother Huo's soul."
Celestial Venerable Huo gave a cold humph, and his heart stirred. He impassionedly said, "You worked together with Celestial Venerable Hao to kill my brother Celestial Venerable Yu. I have always wanted to take revenge for him. Today, I can finally fulfill my wish!"
Son of Heaven Yin shook his head and said, "I had no choice but to kill Celestial Venerable Yu, but I only killed Celestial Venerable Yu. On the other hand, Brother Huo killed too many human Celestial Venerables. Celestial Venerable Yun, Celestial Venerable Yue, Light Emperor, Founding Emperor, Celestial Venerable Mu, Celestial Venerable You, and Celestial Venerable Ling. You view them as your enemies, and you can't wait to hack them into a thousand pieces. The elites of the human race that died in your hands are a hundred times more than those that died in my hands! Brother Huo, are you going to avenge them?"
Celestial Venerable Huo's expression turned cold. "They deserved it! I've always looked down on people like you who flatter others…"
"We are the same kind of people."
Son of Heaven Yin said indifferently, "I'm even a hundred times better than you. At the very least, under my rule, the humans in my territory live better than you, Nantian. Most of my disciples are also humans. Hehe, even I, who you always look down on, can do better than you. Even the ancient gods that you hate like South Deity, the humans under her command are much better than you."
Celestial Venerable Huo was furious and was about to kill someone when he suddenly heard the sound of trumpets. He saw that the youths from Southern Heaven who had just left had returned.
After they returned to the village, they bade farewell to their wives and children. They wore red and green clothes as they walked over.
Not only them, but everyone from twenty to sixty years old had also come.
They didn't sit in the coffin because there were no strong youths in the village who could carry the coffin, so they walked over.
The village was filled with cries.
However, these people had smiles on their faces as they came in front of everyone. One by one, they knelt down and said with joy, "Old master, please eat!"
Son of Heaven Yin shook his head. "These people can no longer be called humans. They are just a bunch of walking corpses in human form. Celestial Venerable Huo, you have taught them well."
He suddenly laughed out loud, and he pointed at Celestial Venerable Huo as he bent over. He laughed until tears flowed down his face. "Just like that, you still look down on me, saying that I have no backbone, saying that I'm a dog that only knows how to lick Celestial Venerable Hao! You, you, you are truly a f*cking hypocrite! No matter how bad I, Son of Heaven Yin, am, I'm still a hundred times better than you!"
He jumped up in excitement. "I'm bad, but I'm an upright baddie! And you, you're clearly a promiscuous bitch, yet you act so sanctimoniously and even want to build a memorial arch for yourself!"
He laughed until he rolled on the ground, unable to stand up. "You are much worse than me! You look down on me, saying that I'm not worthy to be a Celestial Venerable, saying that I relied on flattery to rise up, you said that you relied on virtue to rise up! But what about your virtue? Compared to you, I'm simply an otherworldly saint!"
Suddenly, space distorted violently, and layers of flaming wheels swirled behind Celestial Venerable Huo's head, twisting the entire heavens!
The starry sky of this heaven swirled with the wheel of flames, and the land transformed into a huge ring. Countless cities, villages, mountains, rivers, and seas became a part of this ring!
A look of shame and anger appeared on Celestial Venerable Huo's mask. Son of Heaven Yin and East Deity Qing Long couldn't stand steadily, and they were lifted up by the huge wheel of flames and flew towards him.
Celestial Venerable Huo stretched out his palm and grabbed Son of Heaven Yin's neck. He sneered and said, "You are just a dog of Celestial Emperor Hao, how can you be compared to me?"
Son of Heaven Yin was grabbed by him, and his legs kicked over with force. He grabbed his fingers with both hands and tried to pry them out, but he couldn't. His face turned red, and he chuckled. "Aren't you also a dog? You know how to lick better than me… That's right, you aren't a dog. Dogs are loyal, but you…"
Celestial Venerable Huo broke his neck, and a Dao fire burned him to ashes!
East Deity Qing Long stood at the side, not daring to go forward.
Celestial Venerable Huo patted the ashes on his hand and looked at him. He sneered and said, "I hate the ancient gods the most…"
"Yet you kneel and lick Tai Chu."
A huge gate slowly rose, and the water of the underworld sea poured out from the gate. Soon, it formed a nether sea in the starry sky.
Mingdu Heavenly Gate stood on the surface of the sea, and Son of Heaven Yin walked out from the gate. He said with a smile, "You hate Grand Primordium the most. You submitted to him, you hate Celestial Emperor Hao the most, and you also submitted to him. You don't hate him the most, but you are the most afraid! You are afraid of power, so you worship it! You want to become a power! You even killed Celestial Venerable Yun to gain Celestial Emperor Hao's trust for your position. Huo, you should have had thoughts of taking revenge for Celestial Venerable Yu back then, right? You wanted to kill him to take revenge for Celestial Venerable Yu after gaining his trust. I'll just look at you like this, hehe…"
He sat on the doorstep and swung his legs, his face full of ridicule. "I just watched how you were taken over by power, how you were taken over by desire. My heart was filled with delight because you quickly became like me! However, I never expected that you would become even more unbearable and dark than me!"
Celestial Venerable Huo pointed, and Son of Heaven Yin exploded into pieces.
The next moment, waves rose in the sea of the underworld, and Son of Heaven Yin walked out of the door again. He said with a smile, "No one in this world can kill me. Even Celestial Venerable Mu has tried, but he can't do anything to me. Don't waste your energy. On the contrary, I can kill you."
Excitement flashed in his eyes. "Back then, you couldn't kill Light Emperor and promised me to kill him. From then on, I realized that you had the same weakness as Light Emperor. Your soul was too weak! Your technique couldn't cultivate your soul!"
"So it's the new Celestial Venerable Qing Long."
