Chapter 240: Choosing An Imperial Concubine (1)
“This matter…we will take care of it ourselves.”
Since he had already said it like this, Gong Yimo simply nodded her head and stopped speaking.
After Gong Jue had disrupted his plan to convince Gong Yimo to go with him, Gong Che no longer had the chance to persuade his sister. He could only look on helplessly as Gong Yimo and Gong Jue left the palace together.
On their way back, Gong Jue didn’t even say a word to Gong Yimo. It was obvious that he was angry at her.
Gong Yimo felt awkward as she walked beside him…she wasn’t stupid. She just doesn’t like using her brain, but she had noticed that Gong Che and Gong Jue had been acting abnormally lately. Although she didn’t say anything, their odd behavior made her alarmed.
Their care for her…was out of familial love? If it was, wasn’t their care too much over the top?
Their fervent care for her made Gong Yimo feel a little scared.
Gong Jue was still angry, but when he saw Gong Yimo quietly pondering, his heart trembled in fear. He immediately threw his unhappiness to the back of his head and began to think: had Gong Che revealed anything to her before he had arrived?
When it comes to expressing his emotions, Gong Jue was still inexperienced. On one hand, he wanted to throw away his identity as her brother, but on the other hand, he wanted to use his identity as her brother to get closer to her…
If Gong Yimo found out about his feelings for her, then he would be at a loss as to what to do…
Other people may view Gong Jue as someone who was both ruthless and fierce, but in reality, he was still a young bird.
Just when he spoke, he suddenly realized that he was supposed to be angry at her, so Gong Jue angrily turned his head to the opposite direction. In a low voice, he said:
“Are you really going to go with Gong Che?”
His voice was clear, cold, and filled with grievance. Gong Yimo came back to her senses and felt guilty when she heard his question.
In front of her was only a 13-year-old boy…how could she even think about something like that?
Gong Yimo held his hand and smiled. She softly said:
“Don’t worry. No matter what happens, I will always support you. After all, we had depended on each other for survival since we were young…”
After she finished speaking, Gong Yimo felt a little tired, so she leaned on Gong Jue’s shoulder.
Gong Jue was growing taller and more mature. His shoulders were broader, so she can now depend on him.
When she leaned on his shoulder, all of Gong Jue’s unhappiness had vanished like smoke. Although he was often not content with Gong Yimo’s actions, whenever she took the initiative to get closer to him, he would immediately feel happy…
This was the first time that Gong Che wanted to personally murder someone.
He looked at his hands that lacked the strength to truss a chicken and hated himself for being so weak.
He had never killed anyone with his own hands. Even if he wanted to kill someone, he would just order one of his subordinates to do it for him. Because of this, his hands were clean. But now, he wished that he had outstanding martial arts skills as well! If he did…he can also protect Gong Yimo himself!
Whenever he thought of how Gong Yimo and Gong Jue were living together, he was jealous to the point that he was about to lose his mind! They were all relatives; one was her older brother and the other one was her younger brother, so how can she be so biased? How can she stay with Gong Jue, her younger brother, but not him?
When he saw her eyebrows wrinkled as she slept, he felt distressed for her.
He already knew…he can’t cage her in, but he didn’t want to let her go. The consequences of letting her go…he couldn’t endure it.
