Chapter 172: Promised Gift (1)
As if someone called for her, Gong Yi Mo abruptly opened her eyes and found herself in a very beautiful and warm room. She didn’t know how long she was asleep for.
There was a surprised voice and Gong Yi Mo turned her head to look. It was actually a familiar person.
“…Shen… Shi Ye!”
She opened her mouth and wanted to laugh, but her entire body was sore, causing her to frown.
Shen Shi Ye heaved a sigh of relief. His beautiful eyes that had dimmed from lack of rest began to shine once again.
“Thank God! This young master really thought you had died just like that!”
He said it so easily, but in truth, thousands of people searched long and hard for her across the Longteng River.
Fortunately, God was merciful; Shen Shi Ye was able to find her in a remote stream before anyone else. At that time, the girl lay dying within a huge wooden dragon carving. The wooden dragon head was already broken and her entire body was hidden inside, frail and soaked. Shen Shi Ye felt his heart ache at the pitiful sight.
Gong Yi Mo sat up and pat her head…
At the last moment of the explosion, she took out the dragon head that was meant to be the decoration for the ship out from her interspatial space and hid in it! Thankfully, there was a safety measure in the carving, thus saving her life.
Due to the large tremors and shocks, she was knocked unconscious. The wooden dragon head then followed the river and floated down, avoiding the sights of many people.
Gong Yi Mo scanned her body. She suffered some internal injuries from the impact, but not a lot of physical injuries.
This state made her relieved. After recovering a bit, she suddenly lifted her head and hurriedly asked.
“How long was I out for?!”
Shen Shi Ye yawned, “About seven days…” And he guarded her side for seven days…
“Oh sh*t, I’m screwed!”
Gong Yi Mo hurriedly scrambled up. She gritted her teeth due to her internal injuries as she wore her clothes.
Shen Shi Ye’s eyes widened, “What are you doing?! Do you know how much trouble this young master went through to save you? Where are you trying to go?!”
Gong Yi Mo thought of him as a friend and naturally didn’t hide anything from him, “Gong Jue is in great danger at the moment! Even though the Emperor may have already sent people to find him, I’m still worried. I must go find him personally!”
Hearing Gong Yi Mo worrying about someone else when she just woke up, Shen Shi Ye was angry and furrowed his brows.
“You’re not allowed to go!”
His voice was very loud. Seeing Gong Yi Mo stop and look at him in a daze, Shen Shi Ye spoke with a frown.
“Do you know how heavy your injuries are? Trying to save someone in that state, you’re just handing over your life!”
If it were something else, there would be room for agreement. However, this matter was a definite no!
Gong Yi Mo sunk into silence for a moment before lifting her head and sternly speaking, one word at a time, “That is my family! I must go!”
The word ‘family’ caused Shen Shi Ye unable to refute. His whole face turned red, but he was unable to stop Gong Yi Mo. After a long time, he could only angrily mutter.
“Can’t you just take a deep breath? He’s already grown, what could possibly happen to him?”
Gong Yi Mo smiled.
“Gong Jue was someone I personally raised. Thus, I’m naturally aware of his abilities. Even if he’s in deep trouble, nothing would happen to him…”
“And you’re still going?!”
“Because… I’m worried about him!”
After saying that, she already finished wearing her clothes. She bade farewell to Shen Shi Ye and thanked him, “Thank you for saving me, Young Master Ye! I will definitely repay this favor after I return!”
Shen Shi Ye snorted coldly and was too lazy to bother to look at her.
“Who wants your repayment?!”
