The Holy Saintess vs. The Maid Who Wants to Climb Ranks (6)
The Pope held the scepter symbolizing the status and glory of the Saintess with both hands and delivered it to Gu Shengyin.
Everyone was silent, watching this historic scene, and the oil painting masters and the masters of sculpture firmly memorized this scene. In this case, it was necessary to immortalize this historical record.
However, a situation that no one expected occurred.
Gu Shengyin’s hand had not touched the scepter. The scepter forged from the strongest and most precious material of the entire Aoqi continent was broken inch by inch, landing on the ground and burned by golden Godly fire into ashes.
Gu Shengyin: …
The Pope: ……
Without a doubt, there is only one being capable of doing this.
Everyone looked up at the statue of God high above, and many people had already knelt down.
The Pope looked at Gu Shengyin in confusing. Was Hathaway not the appointed Saintess who was favored by the God? But if the God really favored her, why would the scepter be destroyed?
It was common knowledge that if the Holy Saintess has not received the scepter, she will not be recognized by the people.
Already, aristocrats were whispering, saying that this must be because this Saintess must not have pure faith, causing dissatisfaction and anger from the God, which lead to the destruction of the scepter.
Someone began yelling furiously that they must severely punish Gu Shengyin, this Saintess who caused the gods to be dissatisfied. This proposal garnered many people’s approval.
Gu Sheng looked over and saw that the people who spoke were of the Blue Sea Empire. The Blue Sea Empire was a recently emerged empire. They became known for its accomplishments in military and wars. Towards the Aoqi Empire, the oldest empire on the mainland, their attitude was never harmonious. Hathaway was the candidate from the Aoqi Empire. The people of the Blue Sea Empire certainly did not want her to become the Holy Saintess.

Unlike the Blue Sea Empire’s people, who were enjoying this catastrophic situation, the people of the Aoqi Empire looked up at Gu Shengyin on the high platform with worry.
Heidi bowed her head slightly, and her eyes were full of gloating pleasure. She couldn’t wait for Gu Shengyin to be dismissed from the candidacy of Saintess. If she was, she (Heidi) would have a greater chance, wouldn’t she?
The Pope did not believe that the God was dissatisfied with the Saintess. It was important to know that the robes Gu Shengyin was wearing were all from the God of Light.
Gu Shengyin was indifferent towards everything around her, she simply stood silently, waiting for a result.
Sure enough, when the people of the Blue Sea Empire began to shout confrontationally, the God high above finally responded.
A golden light rose from the statue of the God, and an illusory figure walked out from the statue.
Many people felt that their eyes were stinging and were forced to bow their heads and look down. They immediately realized who the figure was.
The entire hall of the Great Cathedral was filled with the sound of kneeling. Even the Pope knelt as well.
Only Gu Shengyin alone was still standing. It was not that she was unwilling to kneel, but rather, she could not kneel at all.
When she had seen the figure, her first reaction was the same as everyone else, but an inexplicable force kept her standing.
The figure walked step by step through the air until he reached Gu Shengyin.
“That common mortal scepter is not worthy of your glory, my most devout believer.” God’s low voice was heard throughout the Great Hall, and it echoed in everyone’s heart.
Gu Shengyin looked at the figure before her in surprise. It was just a figure of Light, but it still carried the aura of power to shatter the heavens and destroy the earth. No one would doubt the true identity of the being before them.
The Holy God of Light.
✧(σ๑˃̶̀ꇴ˂̶́)σ LOL, I can just image their faces when the scepter broke to pieces ʱªʱª (ᕑᗢूᓫ∗)
RANT: tbh I find it a bit irritating how some of u are dismissing this arc/story/author just bc there are similarities to FOD; there are always gonna be some similarities between books of the same genre (or do you guys also flame all those transmigration stories with abandoned young ladies who meet a mysterious powerful man and face slap everyone?)
if u don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything.
It’s very frustrating and disheartening to spend hours translating a chapter just to see ‘o this arc/story/author sucks bc there r similarities to another story’
