Chapter 243: Go Find Her (2)
After he finished commanding them, he jumped onto his horse and looked at the residence. His cold eyes were gradually filled with happiness after looking at the residence.
He doesn’t want much. If he can hide Gong Yimo by his side, it was enough for him…
After he left, Gong Che had finally revealed himself from his hiding place after a long time. He eagerly glanced at the tall and grand gate of the residence.
Gong Jue wouldn’t be able to cage Mo’er, Gong Che was very clear about this.
So, he took out an item from his sleeve, one that was similar to a firework. If Gong Yimo was here to see the item, she would recognize what the item was. At that time, she was making gunpowder and other items. Of all the inventions she had made, this was one of the finished products…
Originally, Gong Yimo was reading in the courtyard when she suddenly heard a strange cry. She immediately looked up into the sky, and sure enough, she saw red fireworks exploding up above…
This was the signal bomb that she had given to Gong Che!
Although she felt like there was something strange going on with Gong Che, she still can’t help but go see him since the signal bomb had been set off. But what did he encounter for him to use the signal bomb? It was highly unlikely for him to encounter danger in the imperial capital, even more so in Prince Qi’s residence. What made him set off fireworks here?
Gong Yimo rushed towards the entrance of the residence, but she hadn’t expected that she would be stopped at the gate. She knew the person who had blocked her path: his name was Luo Qi. He was one of Gong Jue’s top bodyguards.
Gong Yimo was a little puzzled but she politely said, “I want to go out and have a stroll. I have brought a hat with me, so why are you blocking my path?”
Luo Qi couldn’t see Gong Yimo’s face, but he simply repeated the order that he was given.
“His Highness had ordered that no one can enter or leave the residence!”
When she heard that it was Gong Jue’s order, she just smiled and didn’t pay any attention to it.
She waved her hand and said, “Since this is Gong Jue’s command…then you can rest assured…I have nothing to do with it!”
However, at this moment, Luo Qi raised his head and glanced at Gong Yimo. He said, “His Highness had said that it also includes the princess.”
The smile on her face froze when she heard his words. The expression on her face was a little odd but no one else could see it because she was wearing a hat.
“Then you guys…aren’t you putting me under house arrest? This can’t be, Gong Jue wouldn’t do this. Are you sure that you’re not mistaken?”
Luo Qi bowed his head and said, “I’m not mistaken. His Highness said that no one, including the princess, can leave or enter the residence.”
His words made Gong Yimo feel a little odd. Why did Gong Jue order that no one can enter or leave? How was this possible?
However, she didn’t have any time to argue with them. She mumbled to herself, “No matter what, I must go out today! What can you do about it? Humph!”
After she said that, she took big strides forwards.
Suddenly, two swords crossed each other, blocking off her path. Luo Qi’s cold and indifferent voice said:
“Princess…please don’t make it difficult for us…”
When she saw the two swords blocking her path, Gong Yimo became angry. How could Gong Jue order people to shut her in? Even if it was dangerous for her to go out because people might recognize her, he didn’t have to go as far as to do this, right? Even if she encountered a dangerous situation, she had her own skills to take care of it!
She calmed herself down and said, “…I don’t believe that you guys would actually dare to stop me from leaving my little brother’s residence!”
After she finished saying that, she didn’t even look at the swords and continued to walk forward.
Those people didn’t dare to stop her, they could only retreat their steps when she walked forward. Luo Qi also couldn’t do anything; he could only helplessly watch her leave.
“Xiao Qi, quickly enter the palace and report this to His Highness!”
Xiao Qi urgently said, “Brother Luo, why did you let the princess leave? Your martial arts skills are pretty good, you could’ve tried and stopped her! How will we explain this when His Highness returns?”
When he saw Xiao Qi’s foolish appearance, Luo Qi sighed and looked at the direction in which Gong Yimo had disappeared to.
“You just have to remember that if we hurt the princess, His Highness would never let us get away with that.”
