Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1186 - Medicine Doesn't Kill People
The divine treasure realm dispersed, and everyone collapsed on the ground. Only Yan Qiling, Gao Huaitong, and First Ancestor were still fine, and they weren’t severely injured.
Qin Mu clapped his hands and said with a smile, “We should hold this kind of exchange frequently once or twice. Everyone is very happy.”
Everyone got up with their faces covered in dirt, feeling resentful and speechless.
Gao Huaitong coughed and said, “Celestial Venerable is indeed a Celestial Venerable. We admire you so much that we prostrate ourselves in admiration. You are our senior uncle, so we can only listen to your teachings. We will pay a visit to Big Black Wood another day.”
Qin Mu said in delight, “There aren’t many people in the ancestral court, so we should have a good exchange and make it convenient for us to come and go. Nephew, please stay. I still have to bring them to visit the territories of the other Celestial Venerables.”
Gao Huaitong agreed and watched them leave. After a moment, he sighed and said, “Truly a god, worthy of the title of Celestial Venerable. Junior Sister, I heard Master talk about the reform of the Primordial Realm. Guess what Master said?”
Yan Qiling was astonished. She knew that he was Celestial Venerable Xiao’s most valued disciple, and she knew what Celestial Venerable Xiao was thinking. She shook her head and said, “I don’t know.”
“Master said that the reforms of the Primordial Realm will continue for a million years without stopping. It will shake the foundations of the heavens and shake the foundations of the celestial heavens. We will observe its power first. If we can destroy it, we will. If we can’t, we will obey.”
Gao Huaitong said meaningfully, “Defeat them to their advantage, resolve their disputes, share their light and dust, seize their aspirations, and divide their power. In the future, even if the world is changed, we will still be the ones that can’t be changed, and the ones that will rule this world will still be us.”
He smiled and said, “Teacher Xiao’s wisdom far surpasses that of Celestial Venerable Mu. You are the most outstanding disciple of Teacher Xiao, so make good use of it. You will have a chance to shine in the future. Celestial Venerable Mu wants to change the world, hehe…”
Qin Mu brought First Ancestor Human Emperor, Second Ancestor, and the rest to visit the territories of the other Celestial Venerables, blocking the gate to gamble. This time, the past human emperors were much more well-behaved and no longer challenged him. Instead, they peacefully challenged the disciples of the various Celestial Venerables.
This was a chance to make a name for himself, and also a chance to broaden his horizons. If he really fell out with the enemy in the future, it would be a good thing to know the enemy’s methods earlier.
On the way, Qin Mu was studying the runes of the Tai Chi. The runes of the Tai Chi were becoming more complete. He deduced and integrated these runes, and he gradually had a rough idea of how to break the unchanging substance divine art.
When they finished visiting the territory of the ten Celestial Venerables, it was already half a year later. Qin Mu sent First Ancestor and the rest of the human emperors back to the Black Wood Mountain Range and asked, “Ancestral Masters, are you confident in guarding this place?”
First Ancestor Human Emperor said, “Initially, I didn’t have much confidence. However, after seeing the capabilities of the disciples of the ten Celestial Venerables, I have a plan. Even though the reputation of the ten Celestial Venerables is great, their disciples are slightly inferior.”
Qin Mu said with a smile, “That’s good. I can’t stay here for too long, so I’ll leave the ancestral court to you guys. If you guys really can’t resist, someone will naturally come out to help you.”
He then found Apothecary. In just a few months, Apothecary’s cultivation had increased tremendously, and his cultivation realm had actually caught up to Village Chief, Mute, and the rest, cultivating to the Jade Pool Realm!
Qin Mu was astonished. Apothecary had always been the slowest among the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village. His realm was even lower than Deaf’s!
After painstakingly cultivating to the god realm, it was hard for him to take another step forward!
He didn’t expect that in just a few months, he would break through to the god realm, the true god realm, and reach the Jade Pool Realm!
“I’ve already prepared the celestial palace for you.”
Apothecary took out a spirit pill and said with a smile, “The path of medicine is in this spirit pill. Whether you can comprehend it will depend on your abilities.”
Qin Mu pinched the spirit pill and examined it carefully. He saw that the medicinal energy in the spirit pill had actually formed the abnormal sight of a celestial palace. It was extremely sacred, and there were even Dao voices reciting from gods and devils.
He was slightly worried and probed, “Is there poison in this pill?”
Apothecary was full of smiles as he patted his shoulder and said leisurely, “You stabbed me dozens of times the moment we entered the ancestral court. Mu’er, you’ve grown up and your wings have hardened. However, you were raised by me, so how could I poison your spirit pills?”
Qin Mu’s expression changed slightly. As long as Apothecary said this, it meant that there was definitely poison in this spirit pill, and the toxicity was definitely fierce!
Apothecary said with a kind expression, “As apothecaries, poison is also medicine. Take it first and see the effect.”
Qin Mu wasn’t in a hurry to consume the spirit pills. The vertical eye at the heart of his brows opened up and observed carefully.
Apothecary smiled and didn’t rush him, allowing him to study.
Under the gaze of his third divine eye, all the secrets in this spirit pill were clearly reflected in his divine eye.
What astonished him was that the medicinal energy in this spirit pill was integrated into one body. If he looked carefully, he actually couldn’t see any composition of the medicinal energy.
What was even stranger was that the medicinal energy in the spirit pills formed all kinds of runes of the Great Dao, and it was these runes that reflected the celestial palace phenomenon!
Qin Mu had never heard of a celestial palace in a spirit pill!
Furthermore, as the medicinal energy changed minutely, the rune patterns in the spirit pill also changed accordingly, making it hard to see through.
Qin Mu followed Apothecary to cultivate and learn the path of medicine and poison, so he could be considered to have quite some achievements. However, ever since he cultivated Three Primordial Spirit Undying God Consciousness and Anasrava Creation Mysterious Technique, he had neglected to continue improving the path of medicine and poison.
Apothecary’s attainments in the path of medicine and poison had long reached the level of merging medicine and poison. The path of medicine and poison complemented each other.
Qin Mu couldn’t see how far he had reached.
He couldn’t even tell if the medicinal energy of this spirit pill was medicine or poison!
Apothecary looked at him with a smile, and Qin Mu’s expression wavered. He suddenly opened his mouth and swallowed the spirit pill!
Apothecary laughed loudly.
Qin Mu’s expression changed drastically. When a spirit pill entered his stomach, he instantly felt an incomparably violent medicinal energy bursting forth!
The moment the medicinal energy burst forth, he felt a lethal poison that could destroy everything instantly spread throughout his body. All of his vital qi melted like snow!
Not only could his vital qi not withstand it, even his consciousness couldn’t. His consciousness was melting!
His corporeal body also started to become numb and lost all feeling!
At the same time, his Great Dao runes began to disintegrate, and the stars in his Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure dimmed. The star power became weaker!
All of the ancient god apparitions in his divine treasures had lost their original divine power. The divine power had already been poisoned, and the halo behind the heads of the gods was covered in rust. It had lost its spirit, and it slowly stopped spinning.
The ancient gods’ bodies rotted and disintegrated, filling the air with a stench!
Qin Mu was astonished and immediately planned to take out the Taiji Divine Stone to execute the Yin-Yang Taijitu in his divine treasure. Unexpectedly, his body completely ignored his command and lost control of his muscles.
Qin Mu felt like he was a pile of mud that could turn into pus at any moment.
What he didn’t dissolve was his spirit embryo primordial spirit, the taiji diagram, and the complete celestial palace.
Apothecary walked forward and examined him carefully. He exclaimed in admiration and praised, “Mu’er, you are indeed powerful. This pill of mine actually didn’t completely dissolve your cultivation and even allowed you to retain your primordial spirit. I thought I could dissolve all of your celestial palaces and use your cultivation to reconstruct them, manifesting the marvelous and miraculous abilities of the Medical Dao Celestial Palace…”
He frowned. His goal was to let the Medical Dao Celestial Palace suppress the other celestial palaces so that Qin Mu could ‘cast aside the darkness and seek the light’ to cultivate the Medical Dao with him.
However, he didn’t expect Qin Mu’s attainments to be so strong that even the Great Poison Pill he refined couldn’t completely dissolve Qin Mu’s celestial palace.
“I should refine it more fiercely, but if it’s too fierce, Mu’er will be poisoned to death…”
Apothecary went forward and helped Qin Mu to sit down. He said with a smile, “Mu’er, don’t worry, I know what I’m doing. I won’t act recklessly. My poison will transform the vital qi and consciousness in your body into pure true qi. With just a few tricks, you will be able to transform your true qi into the celestial palace of healing… Crap!”
Apothecary’s expression changed drastically, and Qin Mu’s eyes had already lost control. Only the third eye in the heart of his brows rolled its eyes as he thought to himself, ‘You have always used me as a test subject since I was young, which time wasn’t bad?’
