Chapter 171: Medicine for an Aching Heart (2)
Her words struck an alarm in Gong Che’s head! He laughed.
“What is Imperial Mother saying? This son doesn’t understand…”
Empress Liu suddenly turned solemn as she stared straight at him!
“Che’er… Gong Yi Mo… is already dead!”
It seemed to be a dream. Gong Che felt his entire ear ringing. What was Imperial Mother saying? She must be mistaken, how could something happen to Mo’er?
“Imperial Mother… you, what did you say?
Empress Liu saw that Gong Che’s face was pale white. She gritted her teeth and decided to harden her heart!
Just when she was about to speak, Gong Che suddenly cut in!
His lips trembled, two earnest eyes staring at the Empress. It felt like as long as she didn’t say those few words, it would all be as if nothing happened.
How could this be? How could anything happen to Gong Yi Mo? She was Gong Yi Mo!
The Empress couldn’t help but cry. She was also grateful for the things Gong Yi Mo did for Che’er, but now it was too late! The person herself was already dead!
That’s why she firmly told everything from start to end.
Including Li Ke’s betrayal, Gong Yi Mo was threatened by the Emperor using him to the point of her coughing up blood! In order to bring him safely back to the capital, she used a lot of effort to open the canal. She also told him about how in order to erase his unreasonable charges… the fact that she refused to hand over the weapon… and her last three grievances before she died!
She said it slowly and clearly because she hoped that Gong Che would face the truth, short pain over long pain!
But Gong Che… only felt empty… When the Empress told him that Gong Yi Mo died, he felt as if a part of him died off with her.
After returning to his senses, he felt as if he was cut into a thousand pieces! A million pieces! Every crack carried a heart-wrenching pain!
Gong Yi Mo! The girl he loved the most! How could she die? Just how could she die?!
A feeling of suffocation once more rose up. The Empress was shocked, quickly giving him the medicine he hadn’t used for a long time to swallow! She loudly shouted loudly to call for her doctor! Gong Che’s disease seemed to be acting up again!!
Who knew how much medicine he took, but none of them worked. Gong Che’s hand clenched his chest tightly, gasping heavily as if he couldn’t breathe. After the doctor came, Gong Che only said that his chest hurt until he couldn’t breathe. But after the doctor checked him, he found out that Gong Che’s disease wasn’t acting up… Therefore, it wasn’t physical pain, it was emotional pain!
Emotional matters were for emotional doctors. The doctor shook his head and the Empress regretted it even more, hugging Gong Che and crying.
“Che’er, nothing can happen to you! If something happens to you, what should Imperial Mother do?”
However, Gong Che couldn’t hear anything anymore. His entire person was shaking as he curled up on the bed.
He couldn’t feel the Empress’ tears or grief, nor could he hear the ruckus in the room. He only felt as if his heart was being gripped! Tightly gripped!
He couldn’t breathe, he felt like he was dying. But why was it that before he died, he felt so much anguish, his head filled with images of her? But why wasn’t she here next to him? Why?
Gong Che regretted it… He regretted that he never told her his feelings, and now she was dead! Yet, she still didn’t know about his feelings for her!
He didn’t want to be an elder brother! He wasn’t a brother! He wanted to be her man! Even if she would hate him, he should’ve told her these feelings!
Ahh… Gong Yi Mo, where are you? Where are you?!
