Chapter 1182 – Apothecary’s Celestial Palace
Shu Jun was also dumbstruck.
In the history of the masters of creation, void beasts had always been the dream mounts of the valiant warriors of the masters of creation. With a void beast, one’s status in the clan would rise exponentially.
Of course, Shu Jun never had a void beast. It wasn’t because he wasn’t strong enough. On the contrary, he was the strongest master of creation of his era and was honoured as a divine king!
Although the void beasts was very strong, they were under the control of Grand Emperor, so Shu Jun didn’t subdue them. Instead, he subdued another extremely powerful beast called Sacred Tranquillity.
Sacred Tranquillity’s battle prowess was very fierce: almost on par with the void beast mother. It was just that it didn’t have the ability of the void beasts and cannot disappear into the void.
Later on, Ancestral Court changed drastically, and the primordial behemoths here were extinct. Shu Jun’s Bodhi behemoth had also died in battle with him in the Blood Rust Zone.
“With the void beast mother, we can control the void beast to attack and harass the territories of other Celestial Venerables. If they covet our territories, we can attack and save them!”
Qin Mu laughed. “Pi, you did very well!”
The dragon qilin was very pleased.
Qin Mu’s thoughts became active, and he calculated, “We can still strike first to gain the upper hand. First Ancestor, Second Ancestor, I’ll bring you to the territories of the various Celestial Venerables to block on their gates!”
First Ancestor Human Emperor said with a smile, “Mu’er, you are already so big, and you are even Celestial Venerable Mu. You don’t need our strength to block their gates.”
Qin Mu shook his head and said, “It is I who will be bringing you guys to block their gates. To block their gates, there must be a strong practitioner overseeing it. I’ll bring you to block the various mines of the Celestial Venerables and let you witness the divine arts of the strong practitioners of Celestial Heavens.”
The past human emperors clenched their fists tightly with unfriendly expressions.
Human Emperor Yi Shan sneered and said, “If I wasn’t unable to defeat you, I would beat you until Su Muzhe couldn’t even recognise you!”
The other human emperors nodded, and First Ancestor also nodded repeatedly.
Qin Mu laughed loudly and said, “This matter is decided then. I’ll settle the matters here first, then bring you guys to meet them.”
He brought Apothecary to the dense vegetation of Big Black Peak and probed, “Grandpa Apothecary, are the plants here spirit herbs?”
Apothecary bent down and examined a flower carefully. His expression became weirder. After a long time, he straightened his back and took out a silver needle to carefully poke the tender green leaves.
The flower suddenly sank into the ground and escaped.
Apothecary frowned and thought about it. He took out a spirit pill and carefully placed it in front of the small hole that the divine herb had left behind after escaping. After a moment, the divine herb carefully poked out another leaf and tested it. After confirming that there was no danger, it grew out again and used its roots to pull the spirit pill into the ground.
“The spirit herbs here are all rare and strange. I’ve never seen them outside.”
Apothecary looked around and said solemnly, “As for their medicinal effects, I still need to examine them in detail… Eh, strange…”
He came to the front of another spirit herb, and that spirit herb was actually strong that its medicinal energy actually transformed into Dao markings: forming the apparitions of all kinds of runes.
Apothecary’s heart trembled violently as he carefully examined the structure of each section of the medicinal plant. After a long time, he let out a shaky breath and muttered, “My path is about to be formed…”
He couldn’t help tearing up yet Qin Mu was ecstatic with joy. Qin Mu raised his head to look at the sky and muttered, “My Path is also about to be formed…”
Apothecary kicked him away and said angrily, “You only know how to gnaw on your elders every day. If you had put in more effort, this path would have long been formed already!”
Qin Mu rubbed his buttocks and said righteously, “I’m busy with even more things every day. I have to run around and comprehend all kinds of divine arts, paths, and skills, so how would I have the time to comprehend the Path of Medicine? Of course I will gnaw on you elders!”
Apothecary saw that he still dared to talk back and wanted nothing more than to stuff poison into his throat.
Qin Mu immediately left and saw the dragon qilin, Yan’er, helping the people of Eternal Peace to settle down. When they were settled down, Qin Mu called them over and asked about the elder who didn’t have a fixed appearance.
After a long time, Qin Mu’s gaze flickered, and he said, “He seems to know everything? He actually knows that I taught you the Three Enclosures Higher Knowledge, the Great Overarching Supreme Consciousness, and also about the birth of the void beast mother… Before this, Ancestral Court had always been sealed, and it was only when we came here that the seal was lifted. However, it wasn’t completely unsealed. In that case, this mysterious elder can only be the god born from that mysterious and unfathomable chaos mine.”
Yan’er said, “He has been carrying buckets of water to repair the shattered divine mountains. These divine mountains are terrifying!”
“This is the Dao of Exchange.”
Qin Mu said with a calm expression, “The total sum of the universe is forever constant. The process of the universe’s destruction is the process of turning matter into energy. The birth of the universe is the process of turning energy into matter. Even though these terrifying creatures came from their past universe that had already been destroyed, they still have to follow this principle. With this black tree, a passageway between past and future is formed.”
He paced back and forth as he pondered. “They used the void beasts to steal a part of the substance from our universe and move it into the past universe. Then, when there’s less substance here and more substance there, they can take the chance to swap over and come into our world.”
“In other words, in the previous universe, right beside the roots of the Big Black Tree, they held a reverse summoning ritual to steal the substance here. That’s why you saw the piles of void beasts corpses quickly decaying: losing their blood, muscles, and even bones in just a few days.”
Qin Mu raised his head and looked into the distance. He clenched his fists and said, “That ancient god handled things very badly. He sealed the mountains of this big black tree, but our universe still lacks a part of the substance. That universe of the past still has another part of the substance. They will come back sooner or later!”
“Sealing the black mountains is only treating the symptoms, not the root cause!”
Just as Qin Mu finished speaking, he heard a voice exclaiming in admiration, “Celestial Venerable Mu is right. As expected of the title Celestial Venerable Mu.”
Qin Mu looked towards the source of the voice and saw a person who looked like a scholar had appeared behind them at some point in time. He was holding a folding fan and had a graceful bearing. His appearance was handsome, but also held a feminine charm.
Qin Mu looked at the dragon qilin and Yan’er, and they hurriedly shook their heads. He said in a low voice, “Every time he comes, the gender is uncertain, the face is uncertain, and the race is uncertain. We also don’t know if it’s him.”
Qin Mu greeted him and said, “May I ask how I should address Dao brother?”
The scholar clapped his hands with his folding fan and returned the greeting. “People of the later generations call me Grand Derivation. Celestial Venerable Mu also took the eggshell I was born with!”
Qin Mu’s face turned slightly red, and he said, “When I see a treasure, I can’t help being tempted. Dao brother, do you plan to take it back?”
The scholar shook his head. “It’s useless to me.”
Qin Mu let out a sigh of relief. He had never planned to return it to Grand Derivation.
Scholar said too easily, “Celestial Venerable Mu, we have actually met before.”
Qin Mu was astonished and asked, “May I ask where we have met before?”
“A million years ago, I was the huge Kun that carried Celestial Venerable Mu, Celestial Venerable Qin, and the rest to roam Dragon Han Celestial Heavens.”
Grand Derivation, with a scholarly appearance, opened his folding fan and smiled, “Six hundred thousand years ago, when Celestial Heavens split and Great Sun Sovereign released the Heavenly Roaring Dogs in search of Celestial Venerable Gong; I was one of the dogs who ran past you. When Celestial River crashed down, I too was a mortal that was running for his life under Celestial Venerable’s feet.”
