Chapter 241: Choosing An Imperial Concubine (2)
After Gong Jue left, Gong Yimo finally opened her eyes and let out a sigh. She was at a loss. It would’ve been better if she hadn’t noticed it, but once she did, she felt like everything that Gong Jue did was abnormal. Was this all out of familial love?
Three days passed by in the blink of an eye.
These past few days, besides attending to his duties, Gong Jue had spent most of his time accompanying Gong Yimo. He was keenly aware of how uneasy Gong Yimo was feeling, so he had been playing the role of her younger brother perfectly. He looked cute and lovable when he allowed her to order him about; it was like they had returned to the past. As a result of his efforts, the doubt in Gong Yimo’s heart gradually disappeared.
Gong Yimo helped Gong Jue comb his hair for the Empress’s banquet. She winked at Gong Jue and said, “This is clearly a blind date! If you fall for a girl, you have to tell me!”
Gong Jue didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. His enchanting eyes narrowed as he gently but intentionally said:
“The Crown Prince is clearly the main protagonist of the banquet…I am only attending it to go through the motions…” He turned to look at Gong Yimo’s reaction to his words when he saw that there was no change in her expression, he can’t help but let out the breath he was holding…
He continued, “Royal sister, who do you want the Crown Prince to marry?”
His question had stumped Gong Yimo because she didn’t know much about the young ladies from the capital. To her, it didn’t matter who he marries as long as it’s not Su Miaolan. She doesn’t want to retaliate against Su Miaolan, but she will never agree for Gong Che to marry her!
When he saw that she was pondering the answer to his question, Gong Jue secretly laughed in his heart.
He obediently sat there as Gong Yimo combed his hair. When Gong Jue saw their reflection in the mirror, he can’t help but happily smile.
It will be enough for him if the two of them could continue living like this.
On the other side, Gong Che was suffering.
There was no coal inside the Fengqi Palace, so it was very cold.
“Mother Empress, I’m not going.”
Gong Che had a cold expression on his face as he stood before the Empress. It was as if he was talking about a matter unrelated to him.
When the Empress heard him, she put her cup down. Today was a rare occasion, so she had worn extremely luxurious clothing and jewelry befitting of an Empress. Her appearance looked even more cold and heartless than usual with the luxurious clothing.
When she heard his words, she didn’t get angry at him. Instead, she gently said:
“This event had been approved by His Majesty, so whether you want to go or not, you still have to go.”
Gong Che coldly looked at the Empress. His gaze didn’t look like he was staring at his mother, it was more like he was staring at an enemy.
The Empress had caught him unprepared when she had asked the Emperor to approve the matter before she had informed him of it.
The Empress got goosebumps from his gaze, she forced herself to calmly say, “What…you don’t want Gong Yimo anymore?”
Her words had stabbed at Gong Che’s sore spots. Gong Che finally calmed down after hearing her words, but he didn’t know how to reply.
Sure enough, she could only use Gong Yimo as an excuse to restrain him nowadays. The Empress sat on the phoenix chair and looked out.
“I admit that you have grown up and that you are more than capable to do everything yourself. Once you’ve repaired the canal, you will earn countless merits and achievements. But have you ever thought about how long it will take for you to repair the canal? There will be many changes in the palace when you’re gone. If there’s no one helping you protect your position in the capital, what happened last time will repeat itself.”
