Chapter 102 – Is Not As Good As Her (1)
His tone was cold as he gave a casual explanation. However, this explanation only made Bai Sheng more nervous! Did his highness find out?
Bai Sheng didn’t know what to say for a long time. Suddenly, he heard Gong Jue laugh.
The nights here were cold, but Gong Jue’s laughter chilled one to the bones.
“Speaking of that, I find it very strange. We’ve been away for a while now, yet why has there been no news from the capital?”
Gong Jue raised an eyebrow at the end of this sentence and his face abruptly darkened. He looked at Bai Sheng with unbridled killing intent.
He crushed a piece of paper into a ball and threw it at Bai Sheng, then coldly remarked, “I see! I trusted you so much, yet you actually dared lie to me!”
The paper obviously didn’t hurt, but Bai Sheng immediately kneeled as large drops of cold sweat rolled down his chalk white face. He obviously cleaned up thoroughly, yet there was actually a fish that had escaped the net!
He panicked and said, “I beg your forgiveness, Your Highness! This was Princess’ orders, she didn’t want you to worry…”
Sure enough, something had happened!
Gong Jue zeroed in on him, “What else are you hiding from me? Speak!”
“Nothing else!” Bai Sheng hurriedly shook his head and flusteredly said, “Other than the Princess’ demotion, there truly is nothing else!”
This word caused Gong Jue to lurch. His chest was in pain and he almost coughed up blood!
The person he cared for the most, the person he would give everything up for had actually hid such an important matter from him?! Demoted…
“Heh, am I not allowed to get even a single letter?”
So it was like that! It was like that!
Bai Sheng was startled at his words and he hurriedly opened the paper by his foot. There was nothing on it. He lifted his head and met the cold glint of a sword pointed at his neck. A trace of blood remained on its surface, left behind by that girl lying on the floor.
Gong Jue stood in front of him, anger swirling in his eyes. Those deep, black eyes were bloodshot. His whole person was twisted into a vicious ghoul!
“Tell me exactly how everything happened, word for word.”
Hearing Gong Jue’s words, Bai Sheng didn’t dare hide it any longer. Pale-faced, he confessed everything that had happened while the sword trembled from anger. It was very likely that in the next second, he would be like the woman on the ground: dead from a slit of the throat.
“So this was the case! Royal Sister was demoted, how dare you! How dare you two team up to hide it from me!”
Gong Jue took a deep breath and closed his eyes trying to quell his killing intent. No! There was no way he could calm down. Every time he thought of how Gong Yi Mo was bullied by all those people, only able to cry alone by herself, he wanted to rush back and kill all the people in the hall.
There’s also Gong Che! On what basis can he get Royal Sister to plead on his behalf? He’s a prince! His family committed a huge crime so shouldn’t he bear it himself?!
There’s also grandfather and uncle! Why did they team up to hide it from him? On what basis?!
Gong Jue’s eyes revealed chilling killing intent
“Prepare the horse! I’m heading back to the capital! Now!”
Bai Sheng was so shocked that he almost fainted. Xi Zhou was right in front of them, and turning back now would be blatantly disobeying royal orders! It’s a crime punishable with death!
“Royal Highness! The Emperor and Princess put in so much effort, pondered for so long, in order to give you this chance! If you leave just like that, can you face the princess who had labored so hard for this?”
Bai Sheng’s heartfelt plea was met with a slash of Gong Jue’s sword. Blood splattered everywhere.
