“Your Highness, please rest assured. Although there are a lot of people, they aren’t strong enough to be our opponents. Tomorrow, Your Highness still needs to attend court, it’s best if Your Highness rest early.” Luo Qi said.
Gong Jue had a black robe draped over him as he watched the bodies being dragged away; a glimmer of light flashed by his eyes.
“Did you find out who is the person behind this?”
Luo Qi whispered, “Although they’ve concealed themselves well, I was still able to distinguish that there are three separate parties. Two of the parties are from the imperial palace, but I still haven’t been able to figure out who is behind the last party.”
The prince disliked not knowing who was behind the attack. Gong Jue’s cold gaze fell on the few remaining people that were resisting the inevitable. To be able to cultivate so many people with this kind of skill, it seemed like the person behind this attack must be someone extraordinary.
“Continue to investigate. As long as they move, they will leave some traces.”
Those words were taught to him by Gong Yimo.
The sound of killing gradually stopped. Gong Jue was somewhat exhausted as he massaged the area between his eyebrows; then he went to rest after entering his room.
He called for someone and said, “Xiao Qi, the sound of fighting from before was quite loud; go see if my royal sister was awakened by the noise…also, you must clean all traces of the dead bodies. I don’t want her to see anything.”
After he finished instructing him, Gong Jue laid on the bed. However, he didn’t lay on the bed for long when Xiao Qi rushed into the room in a fluster with a deathly pale complexion. He actually dared to do something so presumptuous?
However, Gong Jue couldn’t reprimand him because Xiao Qi’s next words made him froze. Only after a long time, did he finally find his voice again.
“…did you just said…royal sister is gone?
Gong Yimo was alone in the wind and snow of the outskirts of the capital. She didn’t have a specific destination in mind, in fact, she didn’t even know where she was going.
She only knew that she had to continue to walk, continue to walk and not return…
She didn’t know if it was because it was too cold that she couldn’t think straight…
Why did both Gong Jue and Gong Che both fall in love with her? They clearly hated her in her previous life…but in this lifetime, she treated them as her relatives…she treated them so well…
She just wanted to hold onto a big thigh and then do something good, why…why did things had to become so complicated?
Gong Yimo turned around and looked at city walls that were barely visible in the night…
Since she couldn’t figure it out, and since the capital was a place that she can no longer stay, then she…will just leave…
Gong Jue pinched the letter in his hand. There was only one sentence on it, “There are countless spies in the capital, and the capital no longer has a place for me to stay. I’m going to find my master; wait for me to come back!”
The handwriting was messy; it can be seen that she had written this when she was extremely flustered. To make her this flustered, it can’t be that she had suddenly wanted to find her master, nor could it be that she was worried that she’ll implicate him when she saw how spies kept infiltrating the residence…
The only reason that could make her so flustered was that…she had found out.
She found out that her closest relative had fallen in love with her and she couldn’t accept that…so, she ran away to avoid the problem.
Seeing the deathly white complexion on Gong Jue’s face, Luo Qi didn’t dare to make a sound. It was only Xiao Qi, who can’t help but whispered, “Your Highness, the princess shouldn’t have gone far…let’s chase after her.”
Chase after her? It was easy to say it but almost impossible to do. Gong Yimo wasn’t a weak woman who didn’t have the strength to truss a chicken. Her martial arts were outstanding; if she wanted to avoid them, then they would be looking for a needle in a haystack!
Seeing that Gong Jue didn’t respond and acted like he had lost his soul, Luo Qi also can’t help but say, “Since the princess said that she’ll return, then she’ll definitely return. Your Highness, don’t worry too much…”
“She won’t return…” All of a sudden, Gong Jue’s lips lost all of its colors. His eyes were empty as he looked into the distance and said again, “She won’t return…”
Luo Qi sighed and just when he wanted to respond, Gong Jue suddenly put one of his hands on his chest and spat out blood.
“She…won’t come back…”
Luo Qi turned pale with fright and promptly supported him. Gong Jue’s eyes had lost its spirit; the blood had dyed his lips red, but he could only continuously repeat, “She won’t come back”.
“Your Highness don’t be anxious. We will definitely find the princess and bring her back!”
Luo Qi’s words finally made Gong Jue turn to look at him. Fresh blood constantly fell from the corner of his lips and his face was frighteningly pale.
However, he ignored his condition. He pulled on Luo Qi’s sleeve and unexpectedly laughed.
“Help me find her…and ask her…”
“Why, why is she so heartless!”
