Chapter 109 – Fight Back! (2)
Gong Yi Mo knew that when Shen Shi Ye died in her past life, his grandmother also passed shortly afterwards to due extreme grief.
When Shen Shi Ye recalled his grandmother who was filled with white hair, he couldn’t help but go speechless with worry. Gong Yi Mo smiled upon seeing his concern.
Under the moonlight, the princess looked cute and her smile was magical! Even the bright moon behind her paled in comparison to her beautiful smile.
A sword silently appeared from underneath Gong Yi Mo’s sleeve. She drew a sword pattern with her weapon as she looked towards Ping Wang Palace with a foxy smile.
“And, didn’t you say that…she has ‘started to act’ is that right?”
“Well then– why don’t you fight back?”
“Princess Bing, there’s still no sign of him from the Eastern City!”
A henchman knelt low while the woman sitting above made a deep scowl! “Useless trash! You can’t even find a single wounded man! Why bother coming back? GET OUT THERE AND FIND HIM!”
The henchman immediately backed off to resume his search, while another elderly servant cautiously stepped forward towards the fuming mistress and advised her, “Princess, please calm down. The Lord said that even if the prince manages to run away, he still has a plan. That rascal’s death is set in stone!”
Her words finally helped to calm the princess’ nerves. She asked him, “Where is the Lord?”
The elderly maidservant replied, “He went to the neighboring Li family’s mansion to discuss the upcoming plans. He should be back in a moment.”
The princess ‘hmphed’ in dissatisfaction. Underneath the dim light, her once pretty face appeared frightening. Just the thought of having numerous hired men who were still unable to track down that trash to no avail, her anger couldn’t be quenched!
“Heh, don’t let me catch you… if not…”
“if not… then what?”
A sweet voice suddenly resounded from outside the door; if one listened carefully, it sounded like the voice of a young girl.
The frightened princess immediately ordered her men to go outside and check.
Gong Yi Mo hid Shen Shi Ye behind the fake mountain and told him with a smile, “You watch me from here…see how I claim justice for you!”
Shen Shi Ye was confused as to why they would travel to this palace. Why of all places would he come back here?
After listening to her, he suddenly looked at her strangely. “I don’t want to… I have a phobia with blood!”
Ever since his mother wore a theatre costume while singing “Farewell My Concubine,” and then dying in front of him with a slitted throat, Shen Shi Ye would experience deep fear in the sight of blood, to the point where he would faint! God knows how many times he had to bite his tongue on the way here just to stay conscious and to slip into this place with Gong Yi Mo’s protection.
The Chaoyang Princess rolled her eyes at him. Meanwhile, the enemy Princess Bing came out of the palace with her men.
“Even if you don’t want to, you have to open your eyes and watch me! Or else I’ll dig your eyes out!”
After scolding him fiercely, Gong Yi Mo jumped over the fake mountain and out into the open.
When the Bing Princess saw who her newcomer was, her scowl became even more distorted!
“Gong Yi Mo? Why are you here? Don’t tell me that traitorous boy was hiding at your place?!” She had seen the Chaoyang Princess’ face before; she had even tried to flatter this little girl and complimented her throughout an entire banquet, but so what? She was now merely reduced to a peasant!
“Looks like you still haven’t learned your lesson; trespassing on palace grounds is punished with a death sentence!”
Gong Yi Mo looked at her in amusement. Although this woman came with her guards, there weren’t so many of them; only ten able bodied men with a few others, so this wasn’t going to take that long…
As she weighed the blade in her hand, Gong Yi Mo raised an eyebrow and looked down on her mockingly. “Do you know what happens when a hostage sees the kidnapper’s face?”
The other party was confused as to why the girl would ask such an irrelevant question.
Seeing her enemy still stunned, Gong Yi Mo touched her cheeks and sighed.
“Looks like I have no other choice. Since you’ve seen my face, I can only—leave no witnesses!”
