“Chu Chu, perhaps you’ve misunderstood me.”
At this moment, Qi Shao explained bitterly, “I genuinely want to help you enhance your strength, so that we can be together openly. That cultivation method was hard for me to acquire, and I even lost tens of thousands of crystals for it. I never thought that it would cause problems, or that it would harm you. . . . . .I know that you won’t listen to my explanations anymore. I am to blame for this, and you may punish me as you see fit. If you want to reveal our relationship now, I won’t hesitate.”
“Reveal it now? You really have said all the right things, but if we reveal it now, others will only criticize me, saying that I’m not good enough for you. You surely see this outcome, don’t you? Do you think this benefits me in any way?” Jiang Chu laughed again.
Misunderstanding? A misunderstanding my foot.
She now saw the true face of a scumbag.
Qi Shao’s eyes flickered; Jiang Chu’s attitude was far too strong, completely unlike her previous wholehearted trust in him. No matter how he coaxed her, it didn’t work, leaving him feeling lost.
“Enough, for me, there’s only one thing you can do, and that’s to stay away from me. Remember this, I had nothing to do with you before, and I won’t in the future either. If you try anything funny with me again, I won’t let you off,” Jiang Chu said with a cold smile, turning and walking away.
She didn’t want to see this vile person; seeing him was like a slap to her eyes.
The original host was good in many ways, but she was weak when it came to identifying scumbags. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have ended up like this.
When she got home, Jiang Ting was out again, training in martial arts with his master.
The poor boy clearly had no interest in martial arts but had to keep learning.
The reason he was going out to train was that he disliked staying in one place to study. After discussions, his parents thought it would be more useful for him to learn in new environments. Thus, the martial arts master often took him to places where martial artists liked to train.
For safety reasons, they only went to the outskirts, never venturing into danger, so they had been safe for a year or two.
With no parents or younger brother at home and only servants around, the house seemed empty. However, Jiang Chu didn’t mind; she was used to being alone in her previous life, so this quiet and easy environment felt familiar.
It was also convenient that her parents were not home, as she hadn’t prepared to face them suddenly. Being alone in this environment for a while was perfect; she would be psychologically ready by the time they returned.
Back in her room, Jiang Chu took out her divination tools.
Whether learning any craft, laziness could not be allowed, even for one day. Otherwise, one day’s laziness would lead to a second and a third day. Only daily practice and study were the keys to continuous improvement.
“What shall I divine today. . . . . .Let’s see if my family’s trip is going smoothly.”
Jiang Chu herself had nothing to divine, but she had to divine something, so she planned to divine the safety of her parents and younger brother.
Although her spiritual sense was too poor at the moment to measure a long period of time, the safety of these two days should be no problem.
She could measure two days at a time, so she would measure every two days, so she could always know their situation.
With a plan in mind, she started working.
First, she divined her younger brother.
After Jiang Chu divined, she looked at the divining sticks in her hand.
“This younger brother is quite lively and vigorous. It seems that a bit more experience is beneficial.”
Hmm, everything is fine with the younger brother, Jiang Chu set half of her mind at ease.
Next, she divined her parents.
It’s not easy to divine two people at the same time, but since her parents are a married couple, and the relationship between husband and wife in divination can be “combined into one”, as long as they are usually together, and spend little time apart, they can be divined as one object, and the result will be just as accurate.
From her memory, they were always together when they went out and hardly ever acted separately.
She began to divine.
After divining, Jiang Chu picked up the divining sticks.
Looking at it, her brow furrowed.
“Befriending a villain?”
According to the result of the divination, the safety of the two was reassuring, and nothing would happen, but Jiang Chu saw a hint of befriending a villain in the divination.
It seemed that they had just made the acquaintance not long ago, and that “villain” hadn’t had time to cause any harm, but his existence was dangerous in itself.
It seems that she needs to keep a close eye on her parents, and divine regularly, lest something really happen one day.
After divining, Jiang Chu felt that her spiritual sense was consumed too much and needed to rest.
She thought about it and opened the wardrobe, pulling out a book of martial arts techniques.
This book was the “treasure” that Qi Shao said had cost tens of thousands of crystals, and was also the culprit that caused the original owner to give up her life.
Jiang Chu did not believe a word of what Qi Shao had said earlier, but she was curious about this book.
Changing martial arts techniques halfway through was a rare occurrence, because changing the techniques was equivalent to starting over. So unless you just started practicing and found it inappropriate to change quickly, it rarely happened at other times. No one wanted to waste all the effort they had put in.
The original owner knew this too, but she trusted Qi Shao too much, so even though she felt something was off, she still tried it.
She just wanted to try it, and stop when she found it was wrong, so that even if she couldn’t fully retain her strength, she could still keep sixty to seventy percent of it, and with her talent, she would still have time to retrain. However, this martial arts technique was too overbearing, and once started, it couldn’t be stopped at all!
Recalling the original host’s feelings at the time, she felt a sharp pain in her meridians as soon as she started practicing, which was completely different from the smooth and gentle feeling she had when practicing before. But when she wanted to stop, she found that the martial arts technique had already started running, and she couldn’t stop it at all. The original host was very anxious, but what happened next was beyond her control.
Later, the pain shifted from the meridians to the dantian, and after a severe pain, she fainted. When she woke up, all her martial strength had been scattered, and there was still a faint pain in the dantian.
Jiang’s father and mother tried their best to find treasures, but they could only heal her dantian’s injury. As for the martial arts, even the gods could not find them back.
“Something’s not right. Even if you retrain your martial arts technique, it shouldn’t be so painful. Normally, you should be able to feel the clash and incompatibility between the new martial arts technique and the original one. There is a choice between the two. If you stop at this point, you can still retain the original old martial arts technique. If you continue, the martial arts will gradually fade away until they return to zero and then retrain the new one. But this martial arts technique is so overbearing that it can’t be stopped. . . . . .”
Jiang Chu frowned, a little puzzled.
