Chapter 108 – Fight Back! (1)
This time, a series of footsteps could be heard from outside. Shen Shi Ye’s two eyes suddenly widened; he held on to Gong Yi Mo firmly as he struggled to say, “She… Her men has started to act…Please hide me… please.”
His original intention was not to trouble Gong Yi Mo, but as long as she could help him survive through tonight, he could enter into the palace tomorrow. By then, that woman wouldn’t dare to mess with him within the imperial palace!
At this time, Gong Yi Mo’s memories painted a vivid image of how Shen Shi Ye had died in her previous life. It was told that the prince had knocked heavily on the palace gates early in the morning. While Shen Shi Ye was being treated by the imperial physicians, his father Ping Wang, rushed to meet him. Ping Wang reported to the emperor that his useless son had defiled his neighbor Li’s daughter while drunk with alcohol, thus causing the girl to hang herself. The father reported that Shen Shi Ye’s injuries were a result of being beaten black and blue by his servants for his disobedience, and that he never thought that his son would flee to the imperial palace and hide.
Hearing the Li family’s grievances early in the morning caused the emperor to fume with anger. He had Ping Wang put his son into the dungeon to await his sentence.
The pitiful Shen Shi Ye died due to his injury on his way towards the dungeon.
10 years later, the Li family was sentenced to exile to due an offence. They pled to Ping Wang for help, but Lord Ping refused. The Li family was angered and as a result, confessed that it was the wife of Ping Wang that injured the prince Shen Shi Ye.
Thinking about it, Lord Ping must have something to do with this matter! Shen Shi Ye being badly injured, must have been the work of the princess! And the next day, Ping Wang just believed Li’s family statement and catch Shen Shi Ye, undoubtedly trying to hide the truth for his wife.
As Gong Yi Mo thought about these events, she suspected that Lord Ping must have something to do with this matter! Shen Shi Ye’s serious injuries were most likely the schemes of his stepmother! The next day, Ping Wang bribed the Li family to create a false claim so he could catch Shen Shi Ye while trying to hide the truth about his wife’s plots.
In the end, Shen Shi Ye died due to his injuries… … people say that even a vicious tiger will not eat its cubs; this Ping Wang was quite the character!
Hearing the footsteps closing in, Shen Shi Ye was getting anxious! Seeing Gong Yi Mo not moving, thinking it must be difficult for her, right… she is just a peasant, what help could she give to fend off the whole palace?
When he heard the footsteps closing in, Shen Shi Ye became more anxious! Once he saw Gong Yi Mo standing still from the distance, deep in though, he couldn’t help but think, ‘It must be difficult for her… she is just a peasant, what help could she give to fend off the whole palace?’
He stood up, wanting to leave by himself, but the wretched smell of the blood stains on his body caused his face to pale!
Sh*t, is there no one who could help him?
Meanwhile, Gong Yi Mo stood up and supported Shen Shi Ye from his waist, her toe lightly touching the floor as she jumped up towards the roof. She headed towards a direction swiftly!
“Where are you taking me?!”
Shen Shi Ye was stunned at her actions. Pain coarsed throughout his entire body, and his phobia of blood caused him to use every ounce of his strength to hold on tightly!
Gong Yi Mo stopped at one of the imperial palace’s “Dou Gong” roofs that was less visible and put him down. She observed the numerous of torches running to and fro; her gaze sharpened and she pulled out an item from her box.
The emperor gave her a lot of items, but those that are kept in the item box, are the best of the best! And this rejuvenating pill, is from the southernmost country’s national treasure, with just one breath, everything could be rejuvenated!
The emperor had gifted her with many treasures, but the ones stored in her item box had the best quality! This rejuvenating pill in her hands was the Southernmost country’s national treasure. Just one breath of it can cause anything to be rejuvenated!
Shen Shi Ye gulped the pill down and felt a gush of warm air course throughout his body. The nauseating sensation finally disappeared, but his external wound still caused him to feel weak.
“Where are you planning to take me,” he asked silently. This time his voice seemed to carry more energy, but his originally bright eyes were now dimmed and his lips were as pale as paper.
Gong Yi Mo didn’t bother to turn to his direction and merely replied with an unclear tone, “Of course, to Ping Wang Palace!”
Shen Shi Ye was shocked!
“Are you crazy?! You…do you know how much people have sacrificed just so that I could escape?”
Gong Yi Mo looked at him lightly, her voice firm.
“Don’t you want to find out why, even though such a big commotion occurred, no one still came to interfere?..Also, your grandmother who loves you very much didn’t even show up tonight. Aren’t you worried about her?”
