Chapter 266: Cutting off an Old Friend (1)
Gong Yimo suddenly felt uneasy; she doesn’t know where this uneasy feeling came from, but she felt flustered and confused.
There was nothing wrong with doing this. Perhaps after a while, Gong Jue will realize that his thoughts were wrong. When that time comes, she’ll return, and won’t they all be happy?
She was immersed in her thoughts when she suddenly felt murderous intent directed at her! Gong Yimo subconsciously dodged the attack as three concealed weapons consecutively hit the stone where she stood in front of a moment ago.
Gong Yimo looked behind her and saw that she was already surrounded while she was immersed in her thoughts earlier.
At this moment, a gentle voice said, “it seems like we didn’t bitterly wait in vain for half a month in the snow for nothing. The situation in Jincheng has been very tense, yet the princess was still able to stay there for so long. It’s really admirable!”
Gong Yimo looked at them and coldly said, “Aren’t you guys after me because of the gunpowder in my hand? Yet you still dare to force my hand when you know the power behind the gunpowder? Aren’t you afraid?”
The man clothed in black with a cloth covering his face laughed. His gentle and soft voice was a little seductive as he coquettishly glanced at her.
“Of course, I’m afraid, but since we’re standing so close, I believe princess won’t use it unless princess wants to die with us. Because of this, you can only have physical combat with us…princess is of the noble-blood, I believe you won’t die with us worthless people, right?”
Gong Yimo wasn’t afraid of dying because people were bound to die. However, she can’t die here right now, so even though her opponents outnumbered her, she couldn’t afford to use the gunpowder; at this moment, she was not fit to be their opponent.
“Tell the mastermind behind you guys to come out to talk…”
The feminine man raised his eyebrows slightly and laughed, “Everyone had said that the princess is exceptionally intelligent, it seems like it’s a well-deserved reputation. Gentleman Li, since the princess wants to see you, you should come out…”
Gentleman Li? Gong Yimo narrowed her eyes, she finally knows who was behind this.
Sure enough, it was Li Ke!
He walked out from the crowd and took off the black gauze that was covering his face. She hadn’t seen him in a while, he was a lot thinner and his eyes became gloomy. She could no longer see the cultured and gentleman he was before, since he lacked the spirit and temperament he had before. It could be seen that after betraying her, he didn’t do so well.
When Gong Yimo saw him, she let out a sigh of relief. “It seems like I’ve underestimated Long Xiangxiang. She was actually able to send so many people to keep watch for so long. I can go with you guys, but you have to agree to one of my conditions.”
Li Ke’s voice was like rough sand–it sounded very strange. He looked at Gong Yimo with determination as if he wanted to see through her thoughts.
Gong Yimo smiled slightly, “It’s very simple. I want you to retreat 500 meters. Of course, you can block all the escape routes. I just want to have a quiet space to talk to Gentleman Li.”
The feminine man smiled, “Princess, you are making it very difficult for us. You’re such an intelligent person, we can’t let you out of our sight.”
At this moment, Li Ke suddenly said, “I can agree with your condition.”
He took out a pill, “This is a paralyzing pill. As long as you eat this, I will ask them to leave.”
His words made the feminine man somewhat unsatisfied; it was still too dangerous. However, they were all under the order, so they can’t go against his decision. But after thinking about it, he thought that Gong Yimo won’t pose a threat anymore once she eats the paralyzing pill.
Gong Yimo blankly stared at the pill as Li Ke stepped forward and said, “Are you going to eat it or not?”
Gong Yimo was unable to avoid Li Ke’s unwavering gaze. In the end, she laughed, “I’ll eat it!”
