Apothecary's gaze was slightly worried, but he quickly concealed it.
Qin Mu was able to see through the Dao injuries left behind by Ancestral God King and the Dao injuries left behind by Celestial Venerable Hao because he understood the other party's Great Dao. No matter if it was the Heavenly Dao, the First Heaven Dao, or the Great Dao of the Ruins of End, he had studied them deeply.
However, he didn't understand Celestial Venerable Huo's Great Dao.
He understood the Great Dao of Heavenly Fire of Xuandu and the Great Dao of Vermillion Bird and Sacred Fire of the South Pole.
However, these two types of flames belonged to the innate flames, while Celestial Venerable Huo's fire was the fire of the Postcelestial. It represented the supreme achievement of the Postcelestial.
Wanting to break through the Dao injuries left behind by Celestial Venerable Huo in a short time was probably an impossible task!
Apothecary looked at Qin Mu, who was focused on evolving the Dao markings left behind by Celestial Venerable Hao. He was very serious.
When Qin Mu was young, he was always so serious and meticulous. He learned knowledge from the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village and was frequently beaten by Deaf.
The current Qin Mu was already an adult. Sometimes he looked cynical and sometimes he was as serious as a schoolboy.
When he was frivolous, he would often put his life on the line. When he was serious like a schoolboy, he would often save the people he cared about.
Apothecary understood Qin Mu very well.
After a long time, Qin Mu transformed the Dao injuries Celestial Venerable Hao left behind into Dao markings and explained them one by one. Apothecary listened quietly. The Dao injuries Celestial Venerable Hao left behind gave him a huge challenge!
The Dao injury Celestial Venerable Hao had left behind for Celestial Venerable Yue was even more complicated than the strike of Ancestral God King's Heavenly Dao. The First Heaven and the Great Dao of the Ruins of End were even harder to crack than the Heavenly Dao!
His Medical Dao Celestial Palace was complete, but the Medical Dao belonged to the Postcelestial Dao, while the Heavenly Dao, First Heaven, and the Great Dao of the Ruins of End belonged to the Connate Dao.
Whether or not he could cure Celestial Venerable Yue seemed like a concoction, but in reality, it was a battle between the path of medicine and the path of nature.
Even though the spirit herbs produced by the ancestral court were very marvelous, many of them contained the principles of nature, and the medical path was to combine these inconsistent principles to form a restraint on the path of nature. It could even disintegrate, achieving the goal of treating illness and saving people.
To the Heavenly Dao, Xiantian First, and the Great Dao of the Ruins of End, Apothecary's medical path was considered poison, but to Celestial Venerable Yue, it was considered medicine.
Qin Mu separated the long hair on Celestial Venerable Yue's forehead again and carefully observed Celestial Venerable Huo's sacred fire.
This time, he used it even longer.
Just like what Apothecary was worried about, Qin Mu didn't know much about Celestial Venerable Huo and spent even more time on his Dao injuries.
Celestial Venerable Huo's paths, skills, and divine arts were extremely profound, and there was no corresponding collection in the Guardian Pavilion. The paths, skills, and divine arts in the Guardian Pavilion were all targeted at the ancient gods, and Celestial Venerable Huo's Great Dao runes didn't repeat much with the ancient gods' Great Dao runes.
Qin Mu kept staring at Celestial Venerable Yue. Celestial Venerable Yue could already face it calmly. She held her breath and didn't speak.
After an unknown period of time, Qin Mu slowly closed his eyes and saw layers of dream realms appearing in the heart of his brows. The dream realms expanded outwards and soon covered the entire hall.
In the dream, countless tiny Qin Mus yawned and stretched, waking up from their sleep.
Celestial Venerable Yue looked at this scene curiously. She wasn't unfamiliar with it, but the last time she saw Qin Mu execute this kind of technique was forty thousand years ago.
At that time, Qin Mu had sent her into a dream to search for the path of survival.
This time, Qin Mu entered the dream again to search for a way to cure her.
The Qin Mus of all sizes in the dreamscape had solemn expressions as they chattered in a language that no one could understand, spewing small flames from their mouths. Celestial Venerable Yue observed for a long time, and she saw a small Qin Mu visualizing a ring of flames behind his head.
The other dainty Qin Mus also imitated and each of them created a flaming wheel. They were still muttering with solemn expressions, and no one knew what they were saying.
'They are imitating Celestial Venerable Huo!'
Celestial Venerable Yue didn't know whether to laugh or cry. In Qin Mu's dream, these little fellows were imitating Celestial Venerable Huo's appearance, and their imitation was becoming more realistic.
The dainty Qin Mus were slowly studying the runes of the Great Dao that Celestial Venerable Huo had left behind. They were testing the functions of each rune and trying to form divine arts. Some were even trying to derive Celestial Venerable Huo's technique.
Suddenly, a small and delicate Qin Mu gave off a miserable cry and transformed into a small human that was on fire, sprinting frantically in the dream realm.
Celestial Venerable Yue jumped in shock and was about to save the tiny human when she saw the other dainty Qin Mus starting to catch fire as well. The tiny human covered in fire quickly ignited the dream realm and burned it to ashes.
The other dreams were still fine and hadn't been ignited. Numerous small Qin Mus that were disguised as Celestial Venerable Huo walked around with serious expressions, discussing the marvel of Celestial Venerable Huo's paths, skills, and divine arts.
Suddenly, another dainty Qin Mu spewed fire from his eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. The fire started to burn in his body, instantly turning him into ashes!
The other dainty Qin Mus rejoiced in his misfortune and pointed at him while laughing. Suddenly, true fire ignited in their bodies and burned them clean.
Layer after layer of the dream realm was burned to ashes, and each layer had a different way of dying. Celestial Venerable Yue had been lonely in the peach forest for too long, so she didn't feel bored watching the dainty Qin Mus torment themselves in the dream realm.
When the dream realm was incinerated, new dream realms would be born. They would cycle back and forth, continuously deriving the meaning of those fire path dao patterns.
After a few days, more flame runes were sorted out, and the frequency of the small Qin Mus dying in the dream realm increased. There were traces of the Dao of Connate that could be traced. The Dao of Connate of the ten Celestial Venerables was developed from the Great Dao runes of the ancient gods, but Celestial Venerable Huo's Dao was only occupied by the flames of Connate.
It was extremely difficult to deduce the essence of his Great Dao of Fire. His understanding of the Dao of Fire was even higher than South Deity Zhu Que!
After a few more days, Qin Mu finally finished analyzing the fire runes in the Dao injury, and his expression was slightly dazed.
Apothecary planned to prepare some medicine to nurse his consciousness, but Qin Mu shook his head in refusal. However, he still looked a little sleepy as he said, "My consciousness can still hold on. However, after studying Celestial Venerable Huo's Great Dao runes, I saw a lot of logic in his Great Dao runes, but there are some things I can't understand."
Apothecary smiled. "You have a great Celestial Venerable by your side, so why are you thinking so hard? Just ask her directly."
Qin Mu pondered for a moment and told Celestial Venerable Yue about his confusion when he was comprehending Celestial Venerable Huo's Great Dao runes. "Celestial Venerable Huo's Great Dao runes are extremely intricate, and he uses heart fire to refine his vital qi. His cultivation may be extremely dense, but I once sensed a flaw in his disciple. He couldn't refine his soul. However, from the basic runes of his Fire Dao, I can see that he can refine his soul."
Celestial Venerable Yue's heart stirred slightly, and she asked, "What you mean is?"
Qin Mu stretched out his hand and gently waved it in front of him. Rows of flame runes appeared and burned in the air. "His sacred fire comes from the heart fire. When the heart fire refines vital qi to a certain extent, it can evolve into soul fire. Logically speaking, his soul will be incomparably powerful!"
Celestial Venerable Yue frowned and carefully observed the fire runes that he arranged. With a gentle push, one of the runes was destroyed. "After taking this rune, can Celestial Venerable Huo still refine souls?"
Qin Mu examined it in detail and shook his head. "I can't refine it anymore."
"In that case, among my Dao injuries, are there the flame runes that I extinguished earlier?" Celestial Venerable Yue asked.
Qin Mu said solemnly, "This is the weirdest part! Among the paths, skills, and divine arts that Celestial Venerable Huo imparted to his disciples, there's no flame rune."
Apothecary's gaze was slightly worried, but he quickly concealed it.
