Chapter 1264 – Going Up To The Nine Heavens, Going Down To The Nine Springs
Celestial Venerable Hao hurriedly stood up and felt a chill down his spine. However, when he saw that Celestial Venerable Mu and the heart devils hadn’t revived, he let out a sigh of relief. “Without the power of the heart devils, you are far from my match…”
Boom, boom, boom!
The qi and blood in his body spewed out like a violent tide, rushing his head up from his neck. The thirty-five celestial palaces had almost completely collapsed!
When he had clashed with Qin Mu earlier, his injuries had worsened. His injuries were extremely severe, and he had relied on swallowing and refining Celestial Venerable Mu to recover. However, Woodcutter’s restoration divine art had pushed back the thirty-five celestial palaces that he had painstakingly sent out of his body, almost killing him.
In the battle with Martial Arts Heavenly Teacher and Bai Yujing, his injuries had worsened.
When he had clashed with Qin Mu earlier, his injuries were no longer suppressed.
Even if Qin Mu didn’t have the Mental Demon Celestial Venerable Mu to control, he couldn’t continue fighting.
He had to find a safe place to transform his celestial palace into a cocoon of the Great Dao and swallow foreign objects to heal his injuries.
Previously, as long as he healed his injuries, his cultivation would rise to a whole new level, and he would surpass what he was before. However, after the torment of Woodcutter, Qin Mu, and the rest, even if his injuries were fully healed, the Dao injuries of the thirty-five celestial palaces would probably not be able to heal. His cultivation would be much weaker than before, and he didn’t know how long it would take for him to return to his peak state!
“What’s more, if this continues, I’ll really die…”
The divine blood in Celestial Venerable Hao’s neck spewed out, expelling the excess qi and blood out of his body. His head then flew back.
He no longer hesitated and flew backward. Before his feet even landed on the ground, the ground suddenly exploded, and his body rushed into the sky.
Qin Mu controlled his divine treasure realm to arrive in an instant, crushing the place where he had just stood. He then rose into the air, and countless sword lights burst forth from his divine treasure realm. They pierced through his body like comets one after another!
Countless sword lights gathered behind Celestial Venerable Hao, and they actually formed a sword realm behind him!
Celestial Venerable Hao’s hair stood on end, and he suddenly opened his mouth to roar. In the midst of his roar, countless markings tunneled out from his eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. They quickly formed cocoons, and in an instant, they surrounded him densely.
Qin Mu’s sword realm burst forth, tearing apart the Dao cocoon that had yet to take shape. God’s blood spewed out from the sky.
Celestial Venerable Hao shouted, and the Grand Emperor’s Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven flew out to meet Qin Mu’s sword realm. Qin Mu clenched his five fingers, and the sword realm that was expanding suddenly contracted. It barely brushed past the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven without touching it.
The Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven was the Grand Emperor’s divine art. This divine art trapped Celestial Venerable Hao’s primordial spirit. Can Nü’s Seven Souls Grass was made from consciousness sacrifice. It could pass through the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven without triggering its power.
The Seven Souls Grass entered the Great Overarching Heaven and took root in Celestial Venerable Hao’s primordial spirit like a fish in water, absorbing nutrients and refining his soul.
However, if Qin Mu’s sword realm touched the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven, he would be tricked by Celestial Venerable Hao.
When the power of the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven burst forth, not only would it heavily injure Qin Mu, it would also give Celestial Venerable Hao’s primordial spirit a chance to escape!
Celestial Venerable Hao sighed in pity and accelerated into the sky. Beyond the sky was the entrance to the Great Void, and there were definitely armies of the celestial heavens that had escaped.
The celestial heavens would definitely receive news of his battle with the Grand Emperor, and his direct descendants would definitely rush to the Great Void. As long as he walked out, he would be safe!
At this moment, Qin Mu opened his five fingers and smacked his palm towards the sky.
Celestial Venerable Hao rose higher into the sky. At that moment, he saw the sky becoming thinner, becoming less thick.
His body was even stretched, as though it was going to become incomparably thin along with the sky. In the end, it turned into void!
Great Overarching Heaven Completion!
“It was indeed you who stole Clear Sun Hall with Celestial Venerable Yun!”
Celestial Venerable Hao’s heart stirred slightly. Back then, when he and Celestial Venerable Yun stole Clear Sun Hall one after another, they met another expert and executed this move. However, their magic power was far inferior to his, so he used his overflowing magic power to forcefully break it.
Now that Qin Mu had executed this move again, he immediately recognized it.
Qin Mu’s voice rang out. “Celestial Venerable Hao, you had magic power to break my divine art back then. Do you still have it?”
“There’s no more, but I refined the Connate Qi!”
Countless wounds opened up on Celestial Venerable Hao’s body, and he abandoned a portion of his cultivation that he couldn’t suppress. His body trembled slightly, merging with Qin Mu’s Great Overarching Heaven. With a slight shake, he escaped from the Great Overarching Heaven Completion.
Qin Mu was astonished, and two arms popped out from under his armpits. The four arms grabbed towards the center, and the celestial river surged forth, surrounding Celestial Venerable Hao. The four poles rose up with a hum!
Green Dragon, White Tiger, Vermillion Bird, and Black Tortoise appeared and attacked Celestial Venerable Hao in the center!
Celestial River Viewing the Four Poles!
Celestial Venerable Hao vomited blood and fell from the sky like a comet crashing into the land of the Great Void. Flames instantly rushed into the sky, and a mushroom cloud rose.
Qin Mu’s head went down, and his palm pressed down. His palm force landed on the place where Celestial Venerable Hao had fallen, but the ground didn’t sink. Instead, it rose from the ground with a boom.
His Great Dao law formed a Primordial Tree in the Great Void. The Primordial Tree propped up Celestial Venerable Hao’s tattered body and met Qin Mu’s palm.
The Primordial Tree quickly grew to the top of the mushroom cloud and collided with Qin Mu’s palm print. Violent tremors spread out in all directions, forming a circle of white light in the sky. The white light was like a knife that sliced horizontally in all directions, as though it wanted to slice the sky of the Land of the Great Void in half.
The instant Qin Mu’s palm force struck, Celestial Venerable Hao’s figure suddenly vanished. In the next instant, he appeared in the Great Void and Youdu. With a loud bang, he crashed into the ground and tumbled like a scarecrow. He bounced up and down, then bounced up again, rolling for an unknown distance.
He used the qi of the First Heaven to transform into the Great Dao of Youdu and hid in Youdu, avoiding Qin Mu’s killer move.
Bang, bang, bang—
As he rolled, his corporeal body exploded continuously, trying his best to disperse the excess energy in his body. Even if he had to cripple a portion of his cultivation, as long as he could escape from Qin Mu’s hands, he was willing to do so!
He only needed to escape to Son of Heaven Yin’s territory, and Qin Mu couldn’t do anything to him. Son of Heaven Yin and him were on the same side, and he had been taking care of him for the past million years. Son of Heaven Yin would definitely be able to protect him!
However, the sky of the Great Void and Youdu suddenly split open, and huge pillars of darkness rose from the ground. The pillars that rose from the ground were filled with thick black smoke, and along with the flames, the flames swirled on the pillars, and densely packed Youdu Great Dao runes appeared.
“Brother Hao, Youdu isn’t Son of Heaven Yin’s territory, it’s mine!”
Qin Mu’s huge body descended from the sky. When he landed on the ground, he had already transformed into a devil god with the head of a bull, the body of a human, and the face of a tiger. He was like an ancient god born from the first death, controlling all souls.
The markings on the black pillars that were filled with flames appeared, becoming clearer. They transformed into the faces of Earth Count. Earth Count’s three eyes rolled as he stared at the rolling Celestial Venerable Hao.
All the pillars shone brightly, and the three eyes of Earth Count on the pillars shot out beams of devil light. They crisscrossed and sealed off the area of a thousand miles!
