Chapter 271: Forgive You
The Ninth Prince has been puking blood without end and none of the imperial physicians know what’s wrong with him. The palace is currently recruiting famous physicians!”
Gong Yimo loosen her grip on the man. Even after the man quickly ran away, Gong Yimo didn’t recover her senses.
Gong Jue is vomiting blood… it can’t be because of her, right?”
Her face turned pale, and her heart became restless by this thought.
What should she do? Should she return?
But what if this was to deceive her?
But what if this turned out to be true, and she didn’t return?
Gong Jue… he is like a pearl that she treasured and held in the palm of her hand.
There were dark clouds surrounding Prince Qi’s residence.
Gong Jue’s complexion was deathly pale as he lay on the bed, but there were no physician present. Luo Qi walked in carefully and knelt beside the bed.
“The news has already been sent out and we have posted flyers all the way to Xiangcheng. Since the princess was only gone for a few days, she would definitely see them.”
However, Gong Jue appeared to have fallen asleep. He still didn’t move even after listening to him.
Luo Qi secretly sighed and continued, “Our people has went out all four gates to look for the princess, but we haven’t found the princess yet.”
He thought that Gong Jue would become angry after hearing that, but Gong Jue didn’t become angry. Instead, he frowned deeply like he was having a nightmare.
After a long time, Gong Jue suddenly cried out in pain and slowly opened his eyes.
His eyes were different from his usual indifferent and cold gaze. His eyes were blurred and it seemed like he was still in dreamland, as if he can’t get himself out of it.
After a while, his eyes slowly became became cold and finally deathly still.
“Let everyone leave the inner residence tonight.”
Luo Qi looked up in confusion.
Gong Jue continued, “In addition, let the people chasing after her all return.”
“W-Why?” Luo Qi was really shocked by this because he knew better than anyone how important the princess was to His Highness. Why did His Highness make such a decision?
Gong Jue put his hand on his chest and closed his eyes.
“I can feel it… Royal sister has returned…”
After Gong Yimo sneaked through the city gate, she didn’t go directly to Prince Qi’s residence. It will soon be dark, and then she will go investigate whether Gong Jue was really sick.
She wasn’t prepared to see Gong Jue yet; she just wanted to see how Gong Jue was doing. If he was really sick, then she won’t care about anything else and help him.
But what should she do if Gong Jue’s sickness was a lie
In the tavern, she poured a pot after a pot of wine for herself. She didn’t expect that she would need to use alcohol to pump up her courage!
The sky turned dark, Gong Yimo sneaked close to Prince Qi’s residence; she halted by the walls and listened for any noise.
She heard in the morning that all the people in Prince Qi’s residence were sent out. Gong Yimo didn’t believe it at first, but now that she’s listening in, it seemed like there really was no one present from the quietness.
This made Gong Yimo very angry. Even if he was trying to look for someone, you shouldn’t disregard your health! There are many spies who would come to spy on the residence recently!
She shook her head in disapproval, then she flipped over the wall and landed steadily on the grass. At this time, there was a layer of frost covering the grass, so when she stepped on the ground, there would be a light crisp sound.
Gong Yimo held her breath as she stood in place for a long time. When she realized that there was no one around, she rushed towards Gong Jue’s residence!
It was very quiet in the residence, she originally thought that there might be ambushes and traps, but there wasn’t anything at all. Gong Yimo’s heart trembled, could it be that something really happened to Gong Jue? When she thought of this, she rushed towards his residence even more urgently.
