Chapter 258: Invitation (1) Gong Che strode out of the hall, not caring how shocked Hong Xiu was. He was going to ask for an imperial edict to marry Su Miaolan! The instant Su Miaolan received the imperial edict, she couldn’t believe that this wasn’t a dream! After waiting for a few days, she was prepared for Gong Che to break off the marriage agreement. If Gong Che had broken off the marriage, she was prepared to force the marriage by threatening him with suicide because if she can’t marry him, she would truly be a laughingstock for everyone. Thus, she never expected that he would actually agree to marrying her! She was now a real Princess Consort! After Gong Yimo heard the news, she didn’t speak for a long time… At this time, the Empress’ response had already been passed onto her. The message was that she couldn’t accomplish Gong Yimo’s request and that the next time, she would definitely fulfill her wish. However, Gong Yimo didn’t want anything else…she just didn’t want Su Miaolan to marry Gong Che. She had avoided many events from her past life in this lifetime, but some matters, she just can’t avoid. Why did Su Miaolan marry Gong Che in the end? Is this fate? If the ending was the same no matter how she altered it, could it be that she be eventually killed by Gong Jue?” She immediately laughed, how could that be? Didn’t she save Shen Shiye and Empress Liu? Thinking about Shen Shiye, she suddenly remembered that she owed him a drink. It was time that she makes it up to him. She immediately started preparing for it. Gong Jue had been busy with military affairs recently, so he rarely had time to accompany her. This was the perfect time to slip out and play with Shen Shiye. Shen Shiye was now an imperial bodyguard of the left city. He oversaw the protection of the people within the city and had ten thousand subordinates under him. Now, he wasn’t as idle as he was before, but Gong Yimo had her own ways to meet up with him. That night, Shen Shiye was a little tired when he returned to his residence. Thanks to Gong Yimo, he was able to change his fortune in their previous meeting as he tossed his grandmother’s head in his father’s hands. That hateful father was frightened to the point of peeing himself; after he had a clear look at the head, he cried out in despair and immediately became angry. The shock of seeing his mother’s head as well as the gold medallion in Shen Shiye’s hand caused this man to fall into a severe illness, leaving him bed-ridden and completely useless as a person. From this point on, Shen Shiye became the head of the residence. Shen Shiye usually didn’t allow anyone to enter his study, so when he entered the room and poured himself a cup of tea, he was shocked upon sensing a woman’s fragrance from the teacup. “Who is it?” “Heeheehee…” A burst of sweet-sounding laughter echoed inside the quiet room, making his scalp go numb. She didn’t wait for Shen Shiye to react when she covered his eyes with her hands. She playfully said, “Guess who I am?” When he confirmed who the person was, all his anger melted into a smile, revealing a row of pearly whites. In a tone that deserved a beating, he said, “I was wondering who it was, it turned out to be a scoundrel who had broken her promise!” Gong Yimo removed her hand and glared at him. “What did you call me?” Shen Shiye turned around and looked at Gong Yimo. It really was her. He looked down at her and laughed, “Whoever it was that had broken her promise after returning to the capital is the scoundrel.” Seeing that he was still angry, Gong Yimo laughed and took out two leather pouches of wine. “Am I that kind of person? You’re in luck today because this is top-notch wine that is used in the imperial palace for the Emperor’s use. Only a dozen jars or so of this wine is produced each year.” Shen Shiye accepted a leather pouch. He could still feel Gong Yimo’s temperature on the smooth leather. It’s not known what he was thinking about, but his cheeks turned slightly red.
