Chapter 230: Shared Bath (1)
Gong Jue was in a daze when he heard Gong Yimo easily agree to his suggestion. He didn’t know why, but just the thought of soaking in the hot springs with Gong Yimo left him feeling a little lightheaded, just like how he felt whenever he drank too much.
It was as if his royal sister was sent by the Heavens to torment him!
The subordinates working under Gong Jue were very efficient. In the afternoon, Gong Yimo reclined beside the hot spring while eating some light refreshments.
As she ate, she counted the remaining things she needed to do. However, Gong Yimo realized that there weren’t any urgent matters that she needed to attend to, so she lazily reclined on the chair, too lazy to move.
At this time, Xin’er had pushed the curtains to the side and walked to Gong Yimo’s side. When Gong Yimo was demoted, Xin’er had coincidentally been freed from the palace. Gong Jue found her and left her behind to serve Gong Yimo.
“Princess, it’s already very late. I think His Highness must be attending a banquet. Are you still going to wait?”
She looked very young with her tender face. Xin’er was already 18-years-old now, but she still appeared very timid.
Gong Yimo stroked her belly while she lay comfortably on the chair. Her eyes were lifeless as she looked at the sky and said, “Ignore me. I can sleep till death on this chair…”
When Xin’er saw Gong Yimo’s current appearance, she can’t imagine that this was the same princess who had stood against the Emperor alone. If this appearance was seen by those scholars, their image of her will be destroyed.
“Would you still be eating dinner?”
She was just following the usual procedure when she asked that. Sure enough, Gong Yimo waved her hand and said, “I want you to help me find a wooden tray and bring me some wine. I will be soaking in the hot spring.”
Xin’er couldn’t do anything about it so she obeyed her orders. When she had finished the preparations, Gong Yimo had already stripped off her clothes and began soaking in the hot spring. The dense mist filled the air, steaming her tender little face until it was slightly red. She lazily opened her eyes as she laid her upper body on the side of the hot spring. Gong Yimo watched Xin’er move around and smiled at her.
“Good Xin’er, do you want to join me?”
Gong Yimo pervertedly sized up Xin’er’s impressive figure; her fingers were itchy. If only she had a D cup, then she would’ve just played with her own. That kind of feeling…it’s almost…Her vulgar idea was rejected by Xin’er’s righteous refusal. She said in a low voice, “This isn’t something a servant should enjoy. My little princess, please spare this servant…”
When Xin’er trembled in fear as she thought about what His Highness would do to her if he found out. She doesn’t even dare to imagine the consequences…
Gong Yimo felt somewhat wronged after being rejected. She pitifully filled the wine cup with wine and then put the tray on the water. There were wine and fruits on the tray. She followed the flow of the water as she sat on a naturally formed raw stone inside the water. When she sat on the stone, the area below his chest wasn’t soaked in the water but she didn’t feel cold at all.
Xin’er stood by her side dressed in thick clothes. She suddenly raised her head and looked up. When Xin’er saw snowflakes drifting down from the sky, she happily said, “Princess, it’s snowing!”
She was a little excited as she said, “This is the first snow in Jincheng…”
Gong Yimo opened her eyes and raised her head to look at the sky. She only saw countless white snowflakes floating down the pitch-black night sky. The lights in the courtyard illuminated the snowflakes, completing the beautiful and silent scenery. Gong Yimo reached out her hands to catch the snowflakes, but before the flakes even landed on her body, the steam from the hot spring melted them.
“This should be how a person should live…”
When she recalled her previous life, she remembered the experiences she had. In her past life, she had seen beautiful landscapes as well as mountains and rivers that were dyed in blood. She had even risen to the top and had also fallen from the top and into the abyss. Gong Yimo felt that her previous life had been…too hasty.
She wondered what other people would do if they were reborn. Would they pursue to become the strongest? Would they try to get revenge and step on everyone who had bullied them?
