“The one who repairs the canal rules all under the heavens!”
These bold words once again appeared in front of the people causing another wave of shock.
Gong Yi Mo frowned as she looked and suddenly laughed, “After Emperor Wu repaired the canal, he wanted to use it and rule the world so he offered this to the River God! Why cover it up?”
Gong Yi Mo’s words caused the people to whisper. Earlier, they thought that this must be God’s will for the Crown Prince to succeed! But hearing Gong Yi Mo’s words, it was more like Emperor Wu’s ambition back then.
Gong Che’s face color looked better, but it was still very pale. He exchanged a look with Gong Yi Mo. He knew it didn’t truly matter how the people thought of this matter, it was just, how did the person who reported to the Emperor phrase this matter?
It was a clear night filled with stars.
“Crown Prince Elder Brother, this matter, how are you going to take care of it?”
Gong Yi Mo couldn’t think of any good ideas because to her, it was only a small matter. But here, it could be considered a crime punishable by beheading!
Gong Che frowned slightly. He already thought it through. He planned to rush to the capital through the night by first taking the waterway to Xu Yuan and then riding a horse from there.
This matter could either be blown to large proportions or be reduced to a small matter. He needed to personally go explain it to the Emperor. Besides, he hadn’t seen his Royal Mother for a long time, he also wanted to go see her… Presumably, as long as he could arrive in time and explain Gong Yi Mo’s “Emperor Wu theory” to the Emperor, his Royal Father would feel much more comfortable.
His thoughts were not unfounded. Along with the fact that Gong Yi Mo didn’t have any better suggestions, she agreed on the matter. She decided to stay behind to continue repairing the canal.
However, the other party didn’t seem to want to let them go so easily.
Before Gong Yi Mo fell asleep, the sound of rushed footsteps sounded over. She sat up in a flash. Soon, she heard a cry.
“What’s wrong?” She just happened to bump into the person who came to report when she walked out.
“It’s bad! The Crown Prince was attacked, his life lies in the balance!”
Just a single sentence was like a shrill alarm cry, harshly ringing by her ears.
She quickly went inside. The room was full of people, most of whom were doctors.
“How is the situation?” Gong Yi Mo asked the doctor who was taking his pulse.
Doctor Xu frowned and shook his head, “The situation isn’t good. One sword strike passed through his lungs, if it weren’t for him using the red pellet at the critical time to protect his life, he would have been in graver danger!”
All of the people brought here were close, yet he was plotted against the moment he left the city. There must be a snitch. However, this was not the time to investigate. Gong Yi Mo hurriedly called in a person. This was the Crown Prince’s confidante, so he could definitely be trusted!
“Immediately set off for the capital and report to the Emperor that the Crown Prince was almost assassinated! You must not delay!”
Gong Yi Mo looked at his departing back. After thinking about it, she still wasn’t confident and called another person over. After ordering that person the same thing, she sent one to travel by water and one by land.
Even then, her heart was unrestful. She couldn’t fall asleep and guarded Gong Che until dawn.
