“Father, mother, I know you find it hard to accept that I’ve chosen an unpopular career, but this really is my hobby. It’s because of the interest in divination that I’ve been able to keep going. Otherwise, I might not have made it to this point, nor would I be able to face my new life with a smile.”
Jiang Chu gave a bitter smile.
Was their daughter. . . . . .serious?
Father Jiang and Mother Jiang looked at each other, both seeing the surprise in each other’s eyes.
They had truly believed that Jiang Chu was just unable to accept reality and unable to accept leaving Yuxiao Academy, so she had settled for becoming a Divination Master.
After all, the Divination College had the lowest entry requirements in the entire academy.
But now, according to her, this was not her “grievance” but her true passion?
“Is this true?” Father Jiang asked solemnly.
Jiang Chu nodded, “Yes.”
Then, she went on to describe how painful she had been recently, how bleak her life had been, and how she had a natural talent for divination. By self-study from books, she had learned to divine, and had even tried a new form of divination different from all existing methods.
“A new method? Really?”
Mother Jiang’s eyes brightened with interest after her initial surprise, “If that’s the case, then show us. Divine something for us to see!”
“Okay,” Father Jiang nodded seriously.
“Alright, then I’ll divine for. . . . . .Father.”
Jiang Chu pondered for a moment and then nodded, taking out her divination sticks.
She carried them with her?
Father Jiang and Mother Jiang exchanged another glance.
At this point, they truly started to believe what Jiang Chu was saying.
It made sense, didn’t it? Why else would their daughter, who had seemed half-dead, suddenly cheer up after a few days?
Usually, this only happens when there’s hope and direction, allowing one to rally.
If this was the case, learning divination might not be a bad idea.
As long as their daughter liked it, she could study whatever she wanted! Even if she didn’t study anything and just stayed at home all day, it would be fine. It was a good thing that she was willing to learn something now.
As for whether it was popular or not, what did it matter? As long as it wasn’t evil deeds. . . . . .
Hmm? Even evil deeds wouldn’t matter!
As long as it wasn’t too excessive, no matter what she did, they as parents would cover for her!
Compared to their daughter’s life, nothing else was that important, right?
Jiang Chu divined in front of her parents.
This was not just for show; she was truly divining, focusing on the information about a certain individual.
After this recent trip to Jiaoye City, Jiang Chu realized that her spiritual sense had grown. She wanted to test how much, and now was the perfect opportunity.
Mother Jiang watched Jiang Chu with some fascination—―
Her daughter was so charismatic, looking so serious and focused. Her demeanor was no less imposing than when she was a martial arts genius!
Her daughter was truly outstanding, unyielding, and able to muster courage after hardships.
Who else could match this courage!
No wonder she was Hu Yingyue’s beloved daughter. Who else could produce such an excellent child?
“Is the divination complete?”
Seeing Jiang Chu stop and stare at a wooden stick, Father Jiang spoke.
“Father, the divination shows that you are entangled with a petty person in the coming days.”
Jiang Chu looked up from the wooden stick to Father Jiang, “Did you and mother make any new acquaintances on your trip to Half Moon Forest?”
Father Jiang looked at Mother Jiang, startled.
Mother Jiang was also stunned.
They did not speak for a few moments, then finally said, “A new petty person? How could it be a petty person, daughter? Are you sure you didn’t make a mistake?”
“There’s no mistake. This person is indeed entangled with you, and according to the divination, you will have dealings with him again in a few days. The direction seems to be. . . . . .to the west, and this time, you will be taken advantage of and suffer a heavy loss.” Jiang Chu said, frowning, “Is he trying to do business with you?”
Father Jiang jumped to his feet.
“You saw all this in the divination???”
Mother Jiang also took a sharp intake of breath, her eyes filled with disbelief.
It was just a “villain”, neither Jiang Yao nor Hu Yingyue believed it, because they had indeed made a friend on this trip, but that person was a die-hard hot-blooded man!
But what Jiang Chu said next shocked both of them.
A few days later, they had a connection, in the west, discussing business. . . . . .
The big brother named Chen Ronglian was going from Half Moon Forest to Danmung City, and he was going there to negotiate a big deal. After getting to know the Jiang Family couple, he became friends at first sight and then warmly invited Father Jiang to join in.
Father Jiang’s original plan was to go to Danmung City four days later and meet up with Chen Ronglian.
And Danmung City is to the west of Yuxiao City.
A perfect match!
It can be said that everything matches, and it’s not an ambiguous match, but a crystal clear one!
“This is impossible, how can it be so precise?” Father Jiang was somewhat at a loss.
“Yes, it’s too precise. . . . . .I say, Yao-ge, you didn’t tell our daughter about what happened on the road, did you?” Mother Jiang looked over suspiciously.
“My wife, how could this be possible? I’ve been with you all the time. When would I have a chance to talk to her about it in advance?” Father Jiang smiled bitterly, “Even if I did tell her, I wouldn’t let her make up such a sign. What good would it do for us?”
That’s true. . . . . .
“It seems I guessed right.”
Jiang Chu put away the divination stick, put it back on herself, crossed her arms, raised her eyebrows, “Tell the truth, who is that villain, why is he plotting against you?”
Fooled at such an old age! Big idiots!
A contemptuous look from Jiang Chu!
However, what Jiang Chu didn’t understand was, in the original owner’s perception, neither Father Jiang nor Mother Jiang were fools, and they had nothing to do with being “naïve and honest.” They were bounty hunters and businessmen.
Whether it was years of licking blood off blades or the ups and downs in the business world, they always kept their vigilance at a high level. They might not be snobbish, but they were definitely astute.
Why would they trust someone they just met?
“That person is called Chen Ronglian, a medicinal herb merchant. He went to Half Moon Forest to collect rare spiritual herbs, and he. . . . . . knows a Earthly-Level alchemist, the president of the Danmung City Alchemy Association.” Jiang Yao sighed as he spoke.
An outsider, or a daughter.
Who to trust?
Is there even a choice?
Don’t even mention that the daughter’s divination was a perfect match, even if it was not accurate, as long as she said not to cooperate, they would not cooperate with Chen Ronglian again.
Yes, they are devoted to their daughter, the Jiang Family couple.
Compared to Jiang Chu, their son, who had dreamed of being the city lord since he was a child, seemed like a pick-up.
