1528 Even More Useless Than Your Aunt!
It took Jing Jiaren all her courage to reveal her true thoughts. After giving the answer, Jing Jiaren thought that what awaited her was the result of being sent flying. However, to her surprise, after hearing her answer, the words on the page froze for a moment before disappearing.
She wasn’t eliminated.
This meant that Jing Jiaren had passed.
Jing Jiaren heaved a sigh of relief. Noticing that new words had appeared on the paper, Jing Jiaren looked at it curiously.
After seeing the question on the paper, Jing Jiaren, who had always been composed, became flustered.
The question on the paper was—
[Why don’t you dare to see the Soul Suppressing Beast?]
Jing Jiaren suddenly raised her head and looked at the starry sky image above her head. Then, she clenched her fists.
Could it be that she was really talking to God?
Every question that the other party asked reached the depths of her heart.
Soul Suppressing Beast.
That was the greatest fear in Jing Jiaren’s heart. No one knew how afraid she was, but God saw through all her thoughts.
Jing Jiaren suddenly asked, “Who exactly are you?”
This thesis was written thousands of years ago by Prime Emperor Divine Miracle. Logically speaking, the questions raised to every holy child and saintess in the thesis should be the same. Even if the spiritual consciousness of the deceased prophets was hidden in this thesis, even if they knew her performance in the second round of the final competition, they shouldn’t know that she was afraid of the Soul Suppressing Beast.
Apart from Jing Jiaren herself, no one knew how afraid she was of the Soul Suppressing Beast.
Therefore, the only person who knew about this could only be…
No one answered Jing Jiaren’s question.
Just as Jing Jiaren was wondering how to answer, the countdown sounded in her ear again.
The countdown sounded faster and faster, making Jing Jiaren feel flustered.
At this moment, an unfamiliar male voice sounded in Jing Jiaren’s ear without warning. “Jing Jiaren, tell me, what is a Soul Suppressing Beast?” That ethereal voice was filled with holiness and dignity, scaring Jing Jiaren so much that her legs went weak.
Jing Jiaren’s heart suddenly raced. Then, she covered her ears with her hand and shouted, “I don’t know what a Soul Suppressing Beast is!”
Upon hearing Jing Jiaren’s answer, the male voice said with anger, “Jing Jiaren, you’re lying! A timid clairvoyant who doesn’t dare to face her fears isn’t qualified to become a God’s Prophet. You failed.”
The door behind her was suddenly pushed open, and a majestic spiritual energy sent Jing Jiaren flying from the top floor. “Ah!” Jing Jiaren landed beside Yu Huang and staggered a few steps before stabilizing herself.
“Pfft!” She clutched her chest and spat out a mouthful of blood.
“Are you okay?!” Yu Huang, who was closest to her, ran over immediately and supported the weak Jing Jiaren.
As if she didn’t hear Yu Huang’s words, Jing Jiaren looked up at the top floor of the Divination Star Tower with fear.
Noticing Jing Jiaren’s gaze, Yu Huang guessed that Jing Jiaren was afraid of something on the top floor. She couldn’t help but feel curious and think to herself, “What secret is hidden on the top floor?”
Jing Jiaren slowly regained her rationality.
She pushed Yu Huang’s hand away calmly and thanked her. Then, she turned around and walked towards Old Madam Jing. “Grandmother, I failed.”
What greeted Jing Jiaren was a loud slap.
Old Madam Jing slapped Jing Jiaren hard.
Upon hearing this slap, Yu Huang frowned slightly. Song Yuhe, who was kneeling on the ground and feeling miserable and pitiful, instantly became happy when he saw Jing Jiaren being slapped by Old Madam Jing.
Although Jing Jiaren seemed glorious and was always being praised, Jing Jiaren didn’t have a happy life in the Jing family.
The fact that Old Madam Jing slapped her in front of so many people meant that Jing Jiaren’s position as the young master was completely lost.
This was how humans were. When they were miserable, they wanted others to suffer with them.
Even after being slapped, Jing Jiaren didn’t resist.
She covered her face and stared at Old Madam Jing calmly. Then, she sneered and said self-deprecatingly, “Grandma, I can understand you. After all, my aunt and I, whom you were the most proud of, have become failures. You’re already old, so you won’t be able to nurture a God’s Prophet anymore. It’s understandable that you’re angry and want to hit me.”
Yu Huang felt a sense of heartache when she heard this.
Her heart ached for Jing Jiaren and Jing Rujiu.
Jing Jiaren’s provocation hit Old Madam Jing’s sorespot.
“Shut up!” Old Madam Jing slapped Jing Jiaren again and scolded, “Don’t mention that trash’s name in front of me! Jing Jiaren, the Jing family has spent all our resources in order to nurture you. Not only did you ignore the Jing family’s reputation and withdraw from the competition in public, but now that Prime Emperor Divine Miracle has given you a new chance, you actually failed.”
“You’re even more useless than your aunt!”
Jing Jiaren blinked with an impassive expression and said calmly, “Grandma, since my aunt and I are both trash, I’ll have to trouble you to work hard and strive to become a God’s Prophet.”
With that, Jing Jiaren bowed to Old Madam Jing again and left the Divination Star Tower alone.
Madam Jing was so angry that her entire body was trembling.
“How unruly!” She pointed at Jing Jiaren’s back and scolded, “Jing Jiaren, from today onwards, you are no longer the young master of the Jing family. In the future, the Jing family will no longer prioritize you!”
Upon hearing this, not only didn’t Jing Jiaren feel sad, but she even heaved a sigh of relief.
She didn’t even stop in her tracks. Instead, she walked even faster.
“Madam.” Only then did Prime Emperor Divine Miracle say slowly, “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want. Why be so harsh on a little girl?”
No matter how enraged Old Madam Jing felt, she didn’t dare to flare up at Prime Emperor Divine Miracle.
She snorted and quickly calmed down.
Jing Jiaren was the successor Old Madam Jing had personally nurtured, so Old Madam Jing knew Jing Jiaren’s talent and comprehension the best. If even Jing Jiaren failed, who else could obtain the recognition of the deceased predecessors?
Old Madam Jing looked at Yu Huang.
Staring at Yu Huang’s charming eyes, Old Madam Jing seemed to have seen someone else through her. Her gaze gradually became gloomy and mean. As long as she thought about how Yu Huang might pass the test and obtain the divination power of the deceased seniors, Old Madam Jing felt intense unwillingness and jealousy.
She was so outstanding, but even she was rejected by the “Divine” in the thesis back then. She was naturally unwilling to see Yu Huang pass the test.
