Prince You Ming returned to Southern Heaven and saw Bai Yujing who had transformed into a vermillion bird on the bow of the ship.
Bai Yujing was still muddle-headed. She seemed to have instinctively brought the ship of Southern Heavenly Human Tribe away from the battlefield and the celestial river.
Prince You Ming went forward. Bai Yujing seemed to recognize him but couldn't recognize him. She didn't attack him.
Prince You Ming examined her and frowned. There were too many memories in Bai Yujing's mind. There were so many, and they were all chaotic memories, causing her to be delirious.
Prince You Ming tried to help her sort out her memories, but they were too messy, making him unable to do anything.
"What happened to her?" he asked the people of Southern Heaven.
The people on the ship told him what had happened, but ordinary people like them had no idea why Bai Yujing had changed.
Prince You Ming was at a loss. He didn't know how to deal with this situation.
In the distance, Shang Pinying led the remaining survivors of the celestial heavens and didn't dare to approach.
This was the granary of the celestial heavens. Even though Heavenly King Yi Luo was defeated, the celestial heavens would definitely send more powerful existences and more troops over. The calamity of Southern Heaven would continue.
Prince You Ming looked at Shang Pinying from afar. Shang Pinying was leaning on the Glassy Sky Pagoda and standing on a ship far away.
The Glassy Sky Pagoda had been taken away by Heavenly King Yi Luo and was now in Shang Pinying's hands.
Prince You Ming was at a loss. Although he was the crown prince of Deity Xuan Wu, he wasn't good at leading troops into battle. Especially when he had to lead these Southern Heaven mortals who basically had no power, his eyes turned black.
The people on the ships he had rescued had already been sent to the other heavens to seek refuge. However, this was only a temporary measure. If the celestial heavens sent more troops, these humans would also be unable to escape.
At that moment, Prince You Ming suddenly felt a strange summoning power coming from the void. This power locked onto him, but it didn't summon him over. Instead, someone in another world was using a reverse summoning divine art to try and come over.
His heart stirred slightly. This aura was the aura of the dragon qilin, and he was very familiar with it, so he didn't resist.
After a moment, the dragon qilin stood on the head of a huge void beast mother and descended from the beast world.
"Southern Heaven's battle is over?"
The dragon qilin looked around and was slightly astonished. He asked, "Where's Meng Yungui?"
Prince You Ming told him everything, and the dragon qilin was silent for a long time. "A true warrior."
Prince You Ming invited him to take a look at Bai Yujing, and the dragon qilin examined her for a moment before saying, "Her current situation is very strange. It's like South Deity Zhu Que's memory has awakened and is mixed with her memories of almost two hundred lifetimes, which resulted in her thoughts becoming muddled. If the two memories are completely merged, she will wake up."
"Is the sober Bai Yujing still Bai Yujing?" Prince You Ming asked.
The dragon qilin shook his head. "It's South Deity. I just checked and realized that their memories have already started to merge."
"In that case, did Bai Yujing die because of this?"
Prince You Ming felt a little regretful and said, "I feel that Bai Yujing isn't a part of South Deity. She's a living person. If she became an insignificant part of South Deity just like that, it would be such a pity."
The dragon qilin pondered for a moment and said, "South Deity's and Bai Yujing's memories have already started to merge. This kind of merging can't be interrupted once it starts. Furthermore, her thoughts are extremely chaotic now, so it's hard to differentiate which are Bai Yujing's memories and which are South Deity's memories. I don't have such a divine art to help her sort out her memories. There's only one person in this world with such a divine art, and that's Cult Master."
Prince You Ming looked at him, and the Southern Heaven people on the ship also revealed looks of anticipation.
The dragon qilin looked at the faces of these people and hesitated for a moment. He gritted his teeth and said, "Cult Master's Dao of reincarnation can allow her to retain her memories, making her still Bai Yujing. Actually, Cult Master has always had a good impression of Bai Yujing because they share the same fate. Bai Yujing is the reincarnation of South Deity's soul, but she has her own consciousness and is an independent lifeform. Cult Master is also the second consciousness that was born from the same body. Back then, Cult Master didn't directly make her South Deity because of Bai Yujing's words. If I go forward to ask for help, Cult Master will most likely agree to awaken Bai Yujing. However, if I do that, I'm afraid I will offend South Deity…"
He was slightly hesitant and said, "South Deity Vermillion Bird is very determined to retract her soul. When Bai Yujing awakens her Vermillion Bird soul, she will definitely not be able to hide it from her. She will definitely sense the revival of her Vermillion Bird soul. I will seek an audience with Cult Master. If she finds out, she won't dare to have any complaints about Cult Master, but she will definitely have some opinions about me. She is my mother-in-law, and her daughter has already married me…"
The people of Southern Heaven on the ship knelt down and begged, "Please save our benefactor…"
The dragon qilin's expression changed drastically, and he hurriedly dodged. "Eternal Peace doesn't have such a rule of worshiping others! Quickly get up, I'll agree. At most, I'll just offend mother-in-law!"
His expression wavered as he paced back and forth. "No matter what, Bai Yujing is still considered half a mother-in-law to me. Even if I offend the other half, this is something worth doing… You Southern Heaven people always pray to gods and buddhas, entrusting your hopes to others. To break the gods in your hearts requires Bai Yujing's mother-in-law…"
His aura suddenly trembled, and he executed his summoning divine art. Cracks appeared in the sky above tomorrow, and beast kings of primordial beasts flew out from the cracks.
Among them, there were quite a number of huge beasts that had transformed into giants that could support heaven and earth. They were divine arts practitioners of the beast race, and these divine arts practitioners were the direct descendants of the dragon qilin.
The dragon qilin summoned ten thousand beast divine arts practitioners and beast kings in one breath and said to Prince You Ming, "You don't have enough troops and aren't a match for a heavenly master like Shang Pingyin. I'll leave these troops to you for emergencies. After Bai Yunjing is awakened, you and I can leave South Heaven and hand it over to her."
"How are you going to Eternal Peace?"
Prince You Ming said, "This trip to Eternal Peace will take several years even with your speed. When you meet Celestial Venerable Mu, I'm afraid Heavenly Teacher Bai will have already been assimilated."
The dragon qilin smiled and said, "Cult Master and I are like father and son… brothers! Yes, like brothers! I can use reverse summoning divine art to lock onto him. I don't have such powerful magic power to reach his side, but if Cult Master senses me, he can summon me over!"
He was full of confidence as he took out a spirit pill and said, "This is a spirit pill that Cult Master personally refined for me. I left one behind, and it has his aura on it. With this aura, I can lock onto his location and execute my summoning divine art."
He executed his summoning divine art and had just established a connection with Qin Mu who was far away in the Primordial Realm. Before he could execute the power of the divine art, the void suddenly trembled violently, and a vast and profound power pierced through the Primordial Realm from far away. The space collapsed and pulled the dragon qilin into the depths of space.
Prince You Ming jumped in shock. 'Is this Celestial Venerable Mu's power? He instantly locked onto Dragon Mountain Sanren and teleported him over! That's right, why would Celestial Venerable Long Xiao be merciful and release Dragon Mountain Sanren, giving him so many troops?'
The dragon qilin felt the world spinning around him. In the next moment, he stepped on solid ground and appeared in a huge hall in Carefree Village's Sky Realm. Qin Mu and Ling Yuxiu sat on the main seats, with Lang Wo, Celestial Venerable You, Kai Emperor Yiyue, and First Ancestor Human Emperor beside them.
Qin Mu and Ling Yuxiu were currently receiving guests. The guest was dressed in bright red clothes that looked like blazing flames. She was a beautiful woman and was none other than South Deity Zhu Que!
The dragon qilin's heart jumped, and he hurriedly took a few steps forward. He couldn't be bothered to greet Qin Mu and hurriedly greeted South Deity Zhu Que. He shouted, "Son-in-law pays his respects to Mother-in-law!"
He muttered to himself, 'Speaking of South Deity, South Deity is here! As expected of the fastest person in the world. Could it be that mother-in-law sensed Mother Bai's vermillion bird soul awakening and was worried that Cult Master would spoil her plans, so she came here in a hurry?'
As he was thinking, South Deity Zhu Que said with a smile, "Good son-in-law, you're really my good son-in-law. Pi'er, get up. Aren't you in Southern Heaven? How's the war in Southern Heaven?"
The dragon qilin stood up and lowered his head. His eyeballs rolled around as he thought about how to answer.
Qin Mu said with a smile, "Pi, South Deity has brought good news this time, and she's here to tell me about the great victory in the South Sea. The battle in the South Sea had a great momentum. Red Deity Qi Xiayu surrendered, and Crimson Emperor and Light Emperor led the remaining survivors of Crimson Light to meet up with Red Deity and Yan'er. After a few fierce battles, they wiped out more than half of the thirty-ninth army of Southern Heaven. They have already landed and forced the enemies to Carefree Village."
Ling Yuxiu said with a smile, "South Deity wants Eternal Peace to send another army to block the path of the defeated army of the celestial heavens so that they won't be received by the army of the celestial heavens."
When the dragon qilin heard the couple's words, his heart stirred slightly. 'Cult Master and Cult Mistress are helping me smooth things over. It looks like Cult Master has already noticed something.'
"Cult Master, Madam, I'm not here for South Heaven, I'm here for the Beast World."
The dragon qilin's expression dimmed, and he choked on his words. "My foster father, Celestial Venerable Long Xiao, has already lost his soul because he violated the Pact of Little Earth Count. Pi's morality is shallow, and he has now inherited my foster father's position as the ruler of the beast world."
South Deity was visibly moved and couldn't contain her joy. She said with a smile, "In that case, my Yan'er is the mistress of the beast world?"
Qin Mu smiled. "Congratulations, Sister Zhu Que."
South Deity hurriedly said, "What's there to be happy about? What's there to be happy about? Long Xiao is the godfather of my worthy son-in-law. Although he's dead, I'm also very sad. My worthy son-in-law, even though you're the new master of the beast world, you can't be proud. You have to be humble, be humble, and stop being arrogant and impetuous!"
The dragon qilin recalled how well Long Xiao had treated him and couldn't help feeling sorrowful.
South Deity immediately consoled him and said, "Son-in-law, Long Xiao's death was fate. You can't be blamed for it."
Qin Mu sighed. "Pi, I know about the relationship between you and Long Xiao. There's no need to be sad. Now that you've become the new ruler of the beast world, you have to be like what Sister Vermillion Bird said. You have to be humble and not be rash. Even I have to reflect on my actions every day, whether I'm wrong or not."
Light swirled above his head, and a bright mirror flew out from the light. "This mirror is called Gu Sight. It's a treasure that I use every day to look into my heart. Today, I shall gift it to you."
The dragon qilin went forward and took the mirror.
Qin Mu gave another round of encouragement and said, "The war in Southern Heaven is also of utmost importance. By protecting Southern Heaven, we can cut off the rations and logistics of the celestial heavens. I can't split myself up and go there personally. You are now the master of the beast world and have great power. You should protect Southern Heaven!"
The dragon qilin said, "Cult Master, Southern Heaven people are foolish, how should we break the gods in their hearts?"
Qin Mu muttered to himself for a moment and said, "Isn't there Eternal Peace in the beast world as well? I'll allow you to mobilize those people."
The dragon qilin was delighted and was about to leave the hall when South Deity hurriedly got up and said with a smile, "It's been a long time since I've seen my worthy son-in-law. I'll send him off!"
The dragon qilin was helpless and could only walk out of the hall with South Deity.
Outside the hall, South Deity Zhu Que smiled and said, "My worthy son-in-law, Celestial Venerable Mu gave you a treasure mirror for me to admire."
The dragon qilin had no choice but to take out the treasured mirror. South Deity Zhu Que looked at herself in the mirror and then at the back of the mirror. When she didn't find anything abnormal, she handed it to him and smiled. "My worthy son-in-law, how are you going to return to Southern Heaven?"
The dragon qilin said respectfully, "Mother-in-law, this is simple. I will summon in the opposite direction and bring myself to the Beast World. When I reach the Beast World, Prince You Ming will use his summoning divine art to summon me, and I can descend."
South Deity Zhu Que nodded and said, "Take care."
The dragon qilin bade farewell and executed a reverse summoning divine art to return to the beast world.
Not long after they reached the Beast World, Prince You Ming executed his divine art, and the dragon qilin descended from the Beast World. He took out the treasured mirror and said, "This mirror was forged by Cult Master's Great Dao of Reincarnation. My mother-in-law doesn't know the Great Dao of Reincarnation, so I escaped. With this mirror, Mother White can be saved."
He took the treasure mirror and came in front of the vermillion bird that Bai Yujing had transformed into. The vermillion bird looked at the mirror, and after a moment, two streams of fiery tears flowed out of its eyes.
In the mirror, not only did Bai Yujing's life exist, but also Que Feiyin's past life from a long, long time ago.
Prince You Ming returned to Southern Heaven and saw Bai Yujing who had transformed into a vermillion bird on the bow of the ship.
