Chapter 1187 – Heavenly Palace Of Medical Dao
Cold sweat broke out on Apothecary’s forehead as he walked around Qin Mu. His sleeves fluttered in the wind, and all kinds of pill refinement techniques were superb, dazzling the eyes.
Pill refinement techniques were also divine arts. In terms of attainments in this aspect, no one would dare to claim to be number one if Apothecary was number two!
Back in Disabled Elderly Village, Village Chief had once said that if Apothecary could use his pill refinement techniques in battle, his paths, skills, and divine arts would improve greatly.
If combined with his vigorous cultivation, Apothecary could be ranked among the strong practitioners in the world.
However, Apothecary didn’t care much about cultivation and didn’t research paths, skills, and divine arts. He would always raise some poisonous insects and plant some herbs, which resulted in him becoming an existence with the lowest cultivation in Disabled Elderly Village.
At this moment, Qin Mu’s situation was critical. The medicinal energy of the spirit pills that Apothecary had refined was too strong. His goal was to dissolve Qin Mu’s cultivation and refine him into a celestial palace of medicine. This was equivalent to helping Qin Mu enter the path with medicine through his hands.
Even though he didn’t like to fight fiercely, he still had pride in his heart. He wanted to suppress Village Chief, Mute, and the rest, but he didn’t expect that not only did he fail to suppress the other complete celestial palaces, he couldn’t even control the medicinal energy of the spirit pills.
Apothecary’s footsteps were like flying as he circled around Qin Mu. His pill refinement technique was ever-changing and becoming faster.
His forehead was dripping with sweat, and before he even landed, he had already transformed into white steam. He treated Qin Mu as a pill furnace, and the medicinal energy in Qin Mu’s body as herbs. He wanted to refine Qin Mu into a spirit pill!
Now, he regretted not cultivating diligently to raise his cultivation. Qin Mu himself was too strong. Using Qin Mu as a pill furnace to execute this human-shaped pill furnace required dense magic power.
The medicinal energy in Qin Mu’s body was too strong, so executing it to evolve into the celestial palace of healing was much more difficult.
He was gasping for breath, and his vital qi was depleting faster. If he couldn’t raise his vital qi at any time, all his efforts would be for naught.
His face was like a red cloth that had just been fished out from a vat of dye. He tried his best to mobilize his cultivation in an attempt to transform the pure true essence in Qin Mu’s body into the celestial palace of healing.
As long as the celestial palace of the medical path was fixed, the rules of the medical path contained within it could save Qin Mu’s life.
However, even if he used all his strength and all his cultivation, he still couldn’t turn the true essence in Qin Mu’s body into the celestial palace of healing.
Apothecary spat out a mouthful of fresh blood. He felt that his vital qi had been exhausted, but Qin Mu’s celestial palace of healing was only half constructed.
“I will risk my life to not let anything happen to Mu’er!”
Apothecary’s temper flared up, and he suddenly reversed his technique, burning his qi and blood to continue executing all kinds of pill refinement techniques to smack Qin Mu, helping Qin Mu raise this human-shaped pill furnace to refine the medicinal energy.
At this moment, Qin Mu suddenly raised his hand and waved it, blocking his pill refinement technique. He sneered and said, “Grandpa Apothecary, you screwed up, didn’t you? I knew you would mess up. Every time you refine new pills, you either lack this or that.”
Apothecary was stunned. He could acutely sense that Qin Mu’s celestial palace of healing was actually forming on its own. It was Qin Mu’s spirit embryo primordial spirit executing the other celestial palaces and the Yin-Yang Taijitu to refine the remaining medicinal energy and transform the primordial qi into the celestial palace of healing.
Apothecary spewed out another mouthful of blood, and Qin Mu immediately raised his hand to tap on it to seal the qi and blood flowing in reverse in his body. He helped him to sit down and said with a smile, “Grandpa Apothecary, now you know the disadvantage of having no cultivation, right?”
Apothecary trembled as he raised his finger to point at him. Qin Mu pressed down his hand and said earnestly, “You learn from your mistakes. If I didn’t save some of my cultivation for emergencies, wouldn’t you be exhausted to death?”
Apothecary said with a trembling voice, “You can clearly refine the medicinal energy yourself, yet you still made me so tired that I vomited blood…”
“Grandpa Apothecary often scammed me in the past, so I followed his example.”
Qin Mu quickly took out some spirit herbs and prepared them to refine spirit pills to nourish his vital qi and blood. He said with a smile, “If I didn’t scare you this time, you would have suffered sooner or later. Now that you know your mistake, you will work hard to cultivate in the future and strive to be as strong as me.”
Just as Apothecary said that, Qin Mu stuffed a spirit pill into his mouth and said angrily, “I’m not eating…”
Qin Mu stretched out a finger and gently slit his throat. Apothecary couldn’t help swallowing the spirit pill.
Qin Mu’s fingers danced like the wind and tapped repeatedly on his chest to help him refine the medicinal energy. “Don’t throw a childish tantrum. Even though I was the one who schemed against you, what if you don’t have enough power to dissolve the medicinal energy to save me when you meet a situation where I’m sure to die in the future? Of course, I’m so strong so I definitely won’t meet that kind of situation, but what about Village Chief? He’s not as strong as me.”
He knew that Apothecary had the best relationship with Village Chief, so he guided him patiently, “If Village Chief is seriously injured and is about to die, you have the medicine to save him, but you don’t have enough magic power to catalyze the medicinal energy, wouldn’t you want to see him die in front of you?”
Apothecary regained some of his spirit and panted heavily, “You cursed Village Chief, you are unfilial, Village Chief is so sad…”
Qin Mu mobilized his cultivation and refined the excess medicinal energy in his body. He said with a smile, “I’m just making an analogy, I’m not cursing him. Don’t talk nonsense.”
“The Village Chief picked you…”
Qin Mu hurriedly got up and said, “I still have things to do and need to leave the ancestral court for a period of time. Grandpa Apothecary, you can stay here to slowly treat your injuries and work hard to cultivate and raise your abilities. I’ll be leaving first!”
He immediately left and was overjoyed. ‘There’s another celestial palace of medicine. I’m getting closer to the Jade Pool Realm. Grandpa Apothecary will also work hard to cultivate and raise his cultivation. Yes, among the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village, only Grandpa Cripple and Old Ma are disappointing. How should I train them…’
He was full of smiles as he called the dragon qilin and Yan’er over. He instructed them, “I plan to pluck that ancient god egg that will grant my request and leave behind the precious treasure of the 28 heavens. You are Dragon Mountain Sanren, the number one heavenly master in the world, and you are also the master of the void beast mother. You control the void beast in the ancestral court. If you guys stay here, you can ensure the safety of this precious land.”
The dragon qilin immediately asked, “Cult Master, when are you coming back?”
Qin Mu thought about it and said, “If it’s fast, one year. If it’s late, three to five years.”
The dragon qilin was anxious. The title of Dragon Mountain Sanren was fake. Even though Blind was a formation master, he still lacked confidence.
“It’s easy to raise Cult Master, but it’s hard to raise Old Master Blind. Old Master Blind is shrewd…”
He felt danger descending, and his Human Rearing Scripture would probably undergo a huge test.
Qin Mu then found Blind and Mute and entrusted them with the task of refining the Glassy Sky Pagoda again. Mute smiled and said, “North Deity is wasting a god’s gift by refining this treasure into a mess. I’ve long disliked it and will definitely refine it. Don’t worry.”
Qin Mu flew up, plucked the ancient god egg from the Glassy Sky Pagoda, and placed it in the Qin word land. He thought to himself, ‘I have mostly deciphered the Dao language of Tai Shi. Now I can deduce the Dao language of this ancient god egg through the Dao language of Tai Shi. I will know what these two ancient gods are discussing.’
He walked out and raised his head to see that it was already dark.
Qin Mu took out his lantern and was about to leave when the ground suddenly shook. Outside the hundred thousand black mountains was a terrifying sight of the universe collapsing and being destroyed!
In the hundred thousand black mountains, the gods of Eternal Peace looked outside in fear. The dragon qilin’s voice came from afar. “Everyone, don’t panic. This is only the scene of the previous universe being destroyed. There are no changes to the ancestral court!”
Qin Mu heard this and let out a sigh of relief. He carried the lantern and walked out of the hundred thousand black mountains, leaving the area protected by the Glassy Sky Pagoda.
The moment he stepped out of the black mountain, his hair stood on end, and a great fear arose in his heart.
He heard the Dao of this universe wailing and crumbling. The gods of this world were crying!
This was definitely not an illusion. He had truly stepped into the era when the previous universe was destroyed!
