Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1169
Chapter 1169 – Honest treatment
Shi Qiluo led the gods of Patriarch Creation Palace to count the various divine weapons. His voice was loud and clear as it came from afar. “Emperor Yanxiu, these divine weapons of yours aren’t of high quality. I want a discount on these goods!”
Ling Yuxiu’s voice rang out. “High God, the goods of our Eternal Peace are already the cheapest among all the great heavens! Other than Eternal Peace, no other heaven can give you such a price! If you push down the price more, Eternal Peace won’t have any profits, and even the salary will be hard to pay! Eh, cowherd… Celestial Venerable Mu!”
Her eyes lit up when she saw Qin Mu walking over. She almost called out the word ‘cowherd’ when she suddenly came to a realization and changed her words.
Shi Qiluo glanced at Qin Mu, who was walking over, and sneered, “Even if the cowherd Celestial Venerable Mu comes, it won’t work! I’m a stubborn person. Even if all ten Celestial Venerables come, I won’t let waver…”
Just as he said that, his expression changed drastically. He saw Celestial Venerable Hao and God Emperor Lang Xuan walking into the Patriarch Creation Palace together.
The skin and beard on Shi Qiluo’s face trembled, and his legs trembled. He was about to kneel down.
Celestial Venerable Hao said indifferently, “No need. Dao Friend Mu’s footsteps are quite fast.”
Qin Mu said politely, “It’s just borrowing the power of a treasure, it’s nothing remarkable. Dao friends have true abilities.”
Celestial Venerable Hao’s gaze shifted to Yun Chuxiu. He sneered and tilted his head. “Shi Qiluo, you are in charge of the Divine Creation Artifact. Let me ask you, how many Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu have you created?”
Shi Qiluo knelt down with a plop. He trembled as he rummaged through the account book.
Celestial Venerable Hao snorted, “I didn’t ask you to kneel, so why did you kneel?”
Shi Qiluo raised his head and smiled apologetically, “My two legs are always disobedient. Whenever I see a Celestial Venerable, I always think it’s more comfortable when kneeling. Celestial Venerable, please wait a moment. I will look for the account book…”
God Emperor Lang Xuan smiled warmly at the side. “Palace Master Shi does not need to be worried. Dao Brother Hao isn’t going to check on your little treasury. The profits that you made when you reported lies about the prices being different are nothing.”
Cold sweat rolled down Shi Qiluo’s forehead, and he became even more flustered. He only found the record of the Divine Creation Artifact after a long time and hurriedly handed it to Celestial Venerable Hao.
Celestial Venerable Hao flipped open the account booklet and browsed through it in detail. His face became even darker.
His face was ashen, and he felt uneasy.
Celestial Venerable Hao handed the booklet to God Emperor Lang Xuan, who was at the side. God Emperor Lang Xuan flipped through it, and Qin Mu leaned over. God Emperor Lang Xuan hurriedly closed the booklet and smiled ambiguously, “Does Celestial Venerable Mu also want to create a Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu? You can’t look at this account booklet.”
Qin Mu smiled and said, “If I can’t look then so be it. A Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu forged by the Divine Creation Artifact, I also want one…”
Celestial Venerable Hao’s expression was gentle as he said, “It’s not that I am unwilling to give one to Dao friend, it’s just that the materials needed to create Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu are extraordinary. There aren’t many of these materials in Celestial Heavens, and I don’t have spare resources to create another one.”
Qin Mu smiled, knowing that he naturally couldn’t tell the truth.
God Emperor Lang Xuan raised his brows and said, “Palace Master Shi, you created eleven Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu.”
Celestial Venerable Hao stared at Shi Qiluo and said indifferently, “Who asked you to create this eleventh divine artifact?”
Shi Qiluo hesitated for a moment and said carefully, “Celestial Venerable, His Majesty asked me to make this. I have His Majesty’s letter here…”
He knelt on the ground and rummaged around. After searching for a long time, he finally found Celestial Emperor’s letter and carefully handed it over.
Celestial Venerable Hao opened the letter, and his expression became darker. He glanced at Yun Chuxiu, who was not far away.
Yun Chuxiu ran around happily, helping the gods and devils of Eternal Peace carry the divine weapons, ignoring him.
The corners of Celestial Venerable Hao’s eyes twitched. Such a lively and cute girl was indeed very attractive, yet he had to call her mother.
God Emperor Lang Xuan examined Celestial Venerable Hao’s expression and knew what he was thinking.
The ten Celestial Venerables controlled Celestial Emperor’s corporeal body together. It seemed safe, but it actually gave people a chance.
Mistress Yuanmu wasn’t among the ten Celestial Venerables, but she had seized this opportunity to control Celestial Emperor’s corporeal body while the ten Celestial Venerables were unprepared. She used this corporeal body to make a decree, creating a divine weapon Celestial Venerable Yu!
‘If Celestial Venerable Mu takes this chance, hehe, this fellow will probably create a Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu for himself!’
God Emperor Lang Xuan looked at Qin Mu, and his heart trembled. Indeed, he saw Qin Mu’s eyes shining brightly. It was obvious that he wanted to use Celestial Emperor’s corporeal body to create a Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu for himself!
He coughed and reminded Celestial Venerable Hao. Celestial Venerable Hao instantly understood and said plainly, “Shi Qiluo, your dog head is still useful, so I won’t pursue this matter. From today onwards, without the orders of all the Celestial Venerables, even if Celestial Emperor comes personally, you are not allowed to create another Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu!”
Shi Qiluo hurriedly expressed his loyalty and said, “I will follow your command!”
Celestial Venerable Hao walked away, and God Emperor Lang Xuan followed him. He said with a smile, “Dao friend, you are truly skilled. This time, Celestial Venerable Mu won’t be able to cause any more trouble.”
Shiro waited until they were far enough away to get up and pat the dirt from his knees.
Qin Mu said with a smile, “The dignified grandmaster of the Patriarch Creation Palace, the number one craftsman in Celestial Heavens, is actually so keen to kneel down and worship others. Palace Master Shi, your Emperor’s Throne Realm is no small matter.”
Shi Qiluo had an arrogant expression and sneered. “Celestial Venerable Mu, are you also from Eternal Peace? I won’t give you get even a point of leeway, but on account of you being a Celestial Venerable, I’ll give you half a point.”
Qin Mu wanted to say more, but Ling Yuxiu secretly tugged on his clothes, and Qin Mu stopped talking.
Ling Yuxiu waved her hand and said, “Unload!”
The gods and devils of Eternal Peace on the ship immediately started to work. Ling Yuxiu said to Qin Mu, “Half a point is enough. Actually, we can still earn some. The Celestial Heavens have been attacking the Great Void for the past few years, casting many Celestial Coins. The prices of many heavens are rising rapidly. Where did you come from?”
Qin Mu looked at Yun Chuxiu, who was skipping over, and saw her two ponytails swinging from her back to her left, then to her right. He smiled and said, “I returned from Ancestral Court along with the eight Celestial Venerables. I was almost killed by this sister of yours.”
Yun Chuxiu rushed in front of them, lively and active. She said with a smile, “Brother-in-law is also here? I like to seduce Brother-in-law the most!” After saying that, she grabbed Qin Mu’s arm and stuck herself to him.
She had become sisters with Ling Yuxiu, Gongsun Yan, Divine King Lang Wo, and Lian Huahun. In terms of age, Ling Yuxiu was the youngest, so Ling Yuxiu had to call her elder sister.
Ling Yuxiu was right beside him, and Qin Mu hurriedly pulled his arm back, but he couldn’t. He could only say, “I still have important matters to attend to, so stop fooling around. Mistress Yuanmu framed me and almost locked me in Ancestral Court. This time, I’m going to take out Mistress Yuanmu’s corporeal body and summon her soul to see where she’s hiding!”
Yun Chuxiu shuddered and hugged his arm, shaking it left and right. She giggled and said, “Brother-in-law, I’m just joking with you. Don’t be angry! Good younger sister, quickly persuade your man!”
Ling Yuxiu smiled and didn’t say anything.
Qin Mu sneered and said, “I treated Mistress Yuanmu sincerely, yet she harmed me time and time again. This time, she harmed me again. I must reveal her identity!”
Yun Chuxiu looked up at him pitifully, “Brother-in-law…”
Qin Mu was furious. “We are allies, yet you have repeatedly tricked me. Do you really think I don’t know your identity? I have my methods to find out who you really are! You once said that you would bring Yue Tingge to explore the Great Void and search for Carefree Village. However, Yue Tingge only said that the ten Celestial Venerables ordered him to lead an arm into the Great Void, he didn’t mention a Celestial Venerable was travelling with him!”
He was so angry that he laughed and said, “You had in fact entered the Great Void with Yue Tingge, but you didn’t expect that he’s not dead yet and has been hiding in the Great Void! As long as he is found, wouldn’t it be easy to expose your identity? Besides, I still have the corporeal body of Yuanmu, it would be even easier to see though your identity.”
He sighed and said sincerely, “Since we are allies, we should be honest with each other. I’m very sad that you treat me like this.”
Yun Chuxiu sighed and grumbled, “I told you about my identity long ago, but you just didn’t understand.”
Qin Mu was about to say something when Yun Chuxiu chuckled, “I once told you that Eternal Peace’s Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge is connected to my palace. Don’t you know my identity?”
Qin Mu was stunned and stuttered, “That Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge…”
Yun Chuxiu sighed faintly and said, “That Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge was created by the Patriarch Creation Palace. The Patriarch Creation Palace charged me a hundred times the price of Eternal Peace, which was why they outsourced the forging of the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge to Eternal Peace, pocketing the difference. Brother-In-Law, haven’t you figured it out yet?”
At this moment, a rough voice came from the side. “Let me remind you again, where does Eternal Peace’s Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge lead to?”
Qin Mu turned his head around with difficulty and stared blankly at the Patriarch Creation Palace Master, Shi Qiluo, who had a full beard and was incomparably muscular. Qin Mu was dumbfounded. “You, you…”
Shi Qiluo looked at him with pity and said in a rough voice, “Eternal Peace’s Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge is connected to the Patriarch Creation Palace. Furthermore, the Patriarch Creation Palace Master is greedy for money and gave the task of forging the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge to Eternal Peace, selling it to other Celestial Venerables for a hundred times the price.”
Yun Chuxiu smiled sweetly. “Furthermore, he controls the Patriarch Creation Palace, so it’s not difficult for him to create a Divine Artifact Celestial Venerable Yu for himself.”
Shi Qiluo’s rough face held a little charm as he blinked at Qin Mu. He chuckled, “Celestial Venerable Ling assassinated me during the High Emperor Era, but she didn’t expect me to take the chance to escape and possess a rock.”
Yun Chuxiu leaned on Qin Mu’s shoulder sweetly and said gently, “I am very envious of Celestial Venerable Ling’s abilities, so I learned her art of creation and became a grandmaster of a generation, attaining the Patriarch Creation Palace. If the ten Celestial Venerables want to create some strange weapons, they have to go through me. It’s also convenient for me to tamper with them.”
Shi Qiluo also came over and chuckled. “After the Founding Emperor Era passed, I was conscripted by the two great heavenly teachers, and they used me to create an imitation of the Paramita Ark to pass through the Great Void in search of Carefree Village. In the end, the two great heavenly teachers died, and only I returned alive.”
Qin Mu was muddle-headed from all the news and was speechless for a long time.
Shi Qiluo leaned on his shoulder and used his finger to draw a circle on his chest. On the other side, Yun Chuxiu was drawing a small circle on his right chest.
Qin Mu suddenly shook his head and gritted his teeth. “In that case, you weren’t among the three Celestial Venerables that saved me at Jade Pool!”
Yun Chuxiu and Shi Qiluo shook his right arm and left arm and said in unison, “Don’t be angry.”
Qin Mu smiled stiffly, “No wonder Village Chief said I am too naïve…”
