Chapter 112 – Farewell (1)
What kind of person is she? How was she able to see through the fear I’ve had deep within? Is she teasing me while also helping to destroy all of these shackles? Only by destruction can one build something new in its place.
She…just what kind of person is she?
Seeing the youth stare at her speechlessly, Gong Yi Mo wiped her face rather dully.
“Don’t just stand there! Do you know what you need to do next?”
Shen Shi Ye thought for a while before replying, “I still have a bit of authority, just enough to protect myself. Tomorrow, I will have my comrades on the move and have my family appeal to the throne, stating the Ping Wang’s mansion is suspected to have a spy from another country, hence the commotion from this night. Also, I will dispatch plenty of guards to search for the suspect.
Gong Yi Mo nodded in approval. Shen Shi Ye was quite clever; a spy from another nation was always a topic that those with authority feared to touch. A crime of treason was enough to sentence up to nine generations of their family to death!
Once Shen Shi Ye decides to act, Lord Ping will be frightened out of his wits and will behave obediently, doing whatever he can to close this matter before it blows up. Not to mention slandering his own son, he wouldn’t even dare to take a peek outside of his mansion out of anxiety.
When she heard approaching footsteps from afar, Gong Yi Mo yawned sleepily.
“Do you know what to do when you meet your father afterwards?
When he thought of his father, Shen Shi Ye’s eyes shone a murderous glow! He laughed coldly, “Once he steps into this courtyard, I will chop off this woman’s head and throw it into his arms!”
It was as if he was reborn overnight, unlike his previous self who avoided reality and got into trouble. He was now a domineering young man waiting to inherit his father’s place.
Gong Yi Mo smiled and handed him something. “I’ll be leaving tomorrow. I’m sure that when I come back, IF I come back…and you have taken over the position of the Kingdom’s Left Imperial Du Wei (military rank), I will give you a present!”
After speaking, she turned to leave. The girl lightly tipped her toe and her entire body flew above the wall!
She turned around, the bright full moon shining behind her, casting a shadow on her arrogant figure as she laughed,
“If anyone dare to find trouble with you, just use this to smash their faces!”
Shen Shi Ye caught the medallion with the embedded words ‘In the Emperor’s Presence” with a dragon showing its fangs and claws! He raised a brow and smiled.
“Little Ye! Are you alright!”
The worried voice of his grandmother echoed from afar, along with the sound of several footsteps from a team of guards.
Shen Shi Ye lifted his head and sighed. There was still much left to do tonight.
The brigade was ready to depart from the capital, but before leaving, the imperial edicts were swiftly distributed all over the south. This time, they didn’t bring that many people with them, only around 2,000 guards to escort the treasures and tools’ the smiths and sailors were situated at the back of the group along with the 50 carriages.
Before Gong Che parted with the emperor, his father said with a smile, “That little girl is in the carriage fleet isn’t she?”
This sentence immediately caused Gong Che to blush in embarrassment. The emperor laughed loudly and patted his shoulder before letting him go.
As he rode away on his horse, Gong Che couldn’t help but look back. Above the city gate, the emperor’s majestic figure stood there seeing him off with unwavering eyes, as if filled with trust and expectation for him.
Father…he many not have been a good father, but he certainly was a good emperor.
With that thought, as if having come to a resolution, Gong Che continued forward. Meanwhile, within one of the carriages, a small head popped out of the window, looked back at the emperor’s direction and waved.
The emperor noticed and looked over, only to see the girl making a funny face! The emperor was dumbfounded, not knowing whether to cry or laugh!
