Chapter 256: An Accident Arising from Many Causes (1)
On the second day, the news regarding the Crown Prince’s marriage had spread throughout the city. Although the imperial edict had not been written, everyone was talking about it. Gong Yimo was resting her upper body on the small table in the teahouse while she listened to everyone discussing the Crown Prince’s marriage. When she heard that he was going to marry Su Miaolan, she was startled and quickly sat up straight.
Gong Che wanted to marry Su Miaolan? Stop joking around!
She pondered over why he would marry Su Miaolan, but no matter how much she thought about it, she couldn’t think of a reason.
When did Gong Che and Su Miaolan become close to one another? Despite everything, there was even news that said that Gong Che was going to crown her as his Princess Consort. At this time, Gong Jue walked over to her.
“Royal sister, these are the Chinese wafers you wanted, right?”
After what had happened last time, Gong Jue acted as if nothing had happened at all. He was afraid that she would be too embarrassed, so he didn’t talk about how she was eavesdropping on him before. Gong Yimo was very relieved.
When Gong Jue heard that she wanted to go out today, he accompanied her because he didn’t feel reassured and because he didn’t have any important matters to attend to. As they walked past the peddlers that Gong Che had told her about last time, Gong Yimo’s heart was slightly moved. She asked Gong Jue to buy her the legendary Chinese wafers that had been sold for over 20 years in the capital.
As she took a bite of the Chinese wafer, Gong Yi Mo’s expression froze. This amount of sweetness…are these sugar wafers?
Gong Jue sat down across from her and poured himself a cup of tea.
They had put on a simple disguise, otherwise, they would be surrounded by people if they saw Gong Jue’s enchanting face…
“What’s the matter?”
When he noticed that there was something amiss with her, he raised his head and asked. Gong Jue was holding a small cup. His white and fair hand sharply contrasted against the rough sand bowl. Although his appearance looked ordinary right now, nothing could hide his beautiful jade-like eyes.
Gong Yimo was dazzled by his beautiful fingers. She was deep in thought as she looked down and said, “Why did Crown Prince brother choose Su Miaolan as his Princess Consort? I can’t seem to figure out why he would do that…”
Gong Jue’s pupil’s contracted when he heard her words and then slowly smiled, “Maybe it’s love at first sight.”
His words made Gong Yimo be at a loss. She was reluctant to let Gong Che marry Su Miaolan. Although the imperial edict hadn’t been written, the marriage seemed to be set in stone already.
Just why did it had to be Su Miaolan? There are so many women in the capital, but why did it have to be her? Could this be fate?
When he saw that Gong Yimo seemed to have something on her mind, Gong Jue narrowed his eyes. It seemed as if he knew what she was on her mind.
“Does Royal sister not want the Crown Prince to marry?”
He indifferently continued, “Or is it because you don’t want him to marry Su Miaolan?”
Gong Yimo was astonished at how sharp Gong Jue was. After quite a while, she finally nodded her head and said, “I don’t want him to marry Su Miaolan.”
Gong Jue was delighted by her response.
Gong Yimo said, “Can you help me send a letter to the Empress?”
Gong Jue’s expression was unreadable. “The Crown Prince has finally chosen a Princess Consort. I don’t think the Empress will change her mind no matter what you say…”
Gong Yimo clenched her teeth, “I’m going to try…if it doesn’t work…then I can only say that they’re destined to be together!”
Gong Jue was silent for a moment and then nodded his head. Gong Yimo was surprised by his reaction as Gong Jue smiled. His smile seemed to dispel all the cold air away.
“Whatever Royal sister wants to do; I will do it for you…”
For a moment, Gong Yimo was very touched by his words. She didn’t raise in vain!
On the same afternoon, the Empress received a letter from Gong Yimo. There were only a few words in the letter.
Will you keep your promise from that day? Does the Crown Prince’s wife need to be from the Su Family?
The Empress lamented in her heart. She was afraid that Gong Che might break off the marriage. But Gong Che didn’t do anything yet before Gong Yimo had already sent her a letter.
She understood Gong Yimo’s meaning. At that time, she had begged Gong Yimo to help plead for Che’er in front of His Majesty. In exchange, she promised to fulfill one of her requests in the future. But she would’ve never thought that Gong Yimo would bring up that promise at this time…
The Empress handed the letter to Shui Xian. After she read through the letter, she frowned slightly and didn’t seem to completely understand the meaning behind the letter.
“According to the princess’s meaning, the Crown Prince can marry any lady besides the young lady from the Su Family?”
