Chapter 257: An Accident Arising from Many Causes (2)
The Empress had a headache. “But at that time, Che’er had said in front of everyone that he was going to marry the young lady from the Su Family. If he doesn’t marry her…won’t they view us as an enemy?”
Shui Xian thought for a moment before she said, “At that time, the Crown Prince was drunk. How can his drunken words be counted? What’s more, in the past few days, His Highness didn’t ask the Emperor to bestow him the marriage. I believe he regretted his decision.”
After thinking about it for a while, the Empress said, “Hong Xiu.”
“This servant is here.”
She handed the letter to her and said, “Give this letter to the Crown Prince and explain it to him. All of this…just let the Crown Prince decide for himself.”
The East Palace.
“Crown Prince, you can’t!” One of the Crown Prince’s subordinates, Muliao Xu Sheng was kneeling in front of Gong Che with a dignified expression on his face.
“Su Miaolan is the only legitimate young lady from Marquis Zhen’s residence and he is also very fond of her. If you break off the marriage, aren’t you basically destroying his reputation?”
Gong Che stood up, but he didn’t look at the person kneeling on the floor. “I won’t marry. I will personally visit him and offer an apology. I will shoulder the blame for the words that I had said when I was drunk.”
Seeing that he was insisting on breaking off the marriage, Xu Sheng looked at the other people in the room. The imperial advisors looked at each other in dismay and all knelt down in front of Gong Che.
“Crown Prince, please reconsider your decision!”
Gong Che was unmoved by this and continued to walk out. At this moment, Hong Xiu had just arrived in the East Palace. When she saw the scene, she didn’t say a word before she also knelt down on the ground and handed him the letter.
Gong Che hesitated before he finally opened the letter. He was overjoyed when he saw that the handwriting belonged to Gong Yimo. After reading the letter, he became absentminded.
“All of you, leave.”
The imperial advisors looked at each other before they obeyed his command and left without saying another word.
Now, only Gong Che and Hong Xiu remained in the Reception Hall of the East Palace.
When she saw that everyone had left, Hong Xiu simply narrated the story for Gong Che. When Hong Xiu finished narrating the story, Gong Che suddenly laughed and sat down on the wooden armchair.
He knew that his Mother Empress had begged Gong Yimo on his behalf to plead for him. He also knew that because of that, his Mother Empress owed her a favor. Gong Yimo had lost her position as the princess in exchange for that favor. Yet she had used that favor to for this…
“Tell me…why does she dislike Su Miaolan?”
The Crown Prince was at a loss as he asked that. His eyes looked empty as he absentmindedly stared into space.
The grief at the bottom of his eyes made Hong Xiu emotionally moved. She lowered her head and thought about it before she said, “I heard that the princess had a history with the young lady from the Su Family. In all likelihood, the princess probably doesn’t like her.”
“Yeah…she doesn’t like her.”
Gong Che also thought of this as he suddenly burst into laughter. “She doesn’t like her, so she wants me to find another person to marry…hahaha…Gong Yimo, what do you take me for?”
“Do you not care for me at all? Do you want me to marry someone that badly?”
Do you really not have any feelings for me at all?
He closed his eyes. Hong Xiu was shocked by his sudden outburst.
In a low voice, she said, “Your Highness, please calm down. The Empress’s said that Your Highness can decide on this matter. She will respect your decision no matter what.”
“There is no need because my Princess Consort has already been decided.”
Gong Jue laughed grimly as he reread the letter. The more he looked at it, the more he wanted to laugh.
There were only a few words on the letter, but it completely disregarded his feelings…!
“Since she doesn’t want me to marry Su Miaolan, then I’ll marry her!”
Hong Xiu saw the Crown Prince’s complexion turned pale and his eyes turned red.
She can’t help but feel pity for him as she tried to persuade him, “Your Highness, please don’t let your emotions affect your decision! Please reconsider your decision!”
“Reconsider?” Gong Che tightly gripped the letter in his hand and laughed. His laughter sounded cold and bitter.
“There is nothing to reconsider. She will use such a nice opportunity, but she wasted it on this. Perhaps, if I marry Su Miaolan, she might look at me more…”
