Chapter 272: He Can Endure It (1)
Everything felt so unreal when she reached the entrance to Gong Jue’s residence. It was just yesterday that she decided that she would hide from him for a few years, but now she was standing right in front of his residence…
She could hardly hear any sound from inside the room when her hand touched the wooden carved door. Gong Jue… was he still inside?
Why were there no guards in front of his residence if he was sick and inside the room?
If he was not inside, then where would he have gone?
Gong Yimo gently opened the door and then quickly closed the door behind her to prevent the cold wind from pouring into the residence. Throughout this process, her heart was rapidly pounding in her chest. There was only a dim yellow light in the room, so her sight blurred for a split second as she adjusted to the dim light.
When she saw that there wasn’t anyone in the receiving hall, she suppressed her breathing as she headed indoors. The faint medicinal smell in the hall startled her as she walked towards his bedside.
The moment Gong Yimo saw Gong Jue, she covered her mouth with her hand, preventing any sound from escaping from her mouth.
Gong Jue… his ink-black hair was sprayed around him on the snow-white couch and his delicate eyes were closed tightly. There was no color on his lips, and he didn’t seem to have any energy or spirit; he looked like a porcelain doll as he laid there.
Even though she was standing so close to him, Gong Yimo couldn’t hear him breathe…
She was a little anxious and walked a few steps forward.
Gong Yimo’s heart trembled when she reached out to touch him; however, she didn’t dare to touch him…
She sat gently next to Gong Jue as if she was afraid of disturbing him from his sleep. Seeing him like this, how could Gong Yimo not understand? He had really vomited blood and became sick. Gong Yimo had also experienced this, so she knew exactly how he felt; it was living like a dead person, all the spirit was drained out of you.
The only difference was that she vomited blood due to anger, while Gong Jue… became like this because of her.
Gong Yimo felt extremely guilty and she regretted how she tried to avoid the problem by running away from it.
She finally reached out and touched his brows and eyes.
She sighed, “Your eyes are the most beautiful when they are open.”
Even though he still looked beautiful with his eyes closed, his frail appearance really made people feel distressed for him.
Who would’ve known that the moment she finished speaking, Gong Jue’s would grab her with his hands and opened his eyes? He looked deeply at her with his jade-like eyes, like he was trying to imprint her appearance into the depths of his heart, so that he would never forget how she looked…
“If I open my eyes, would you still leave?
It seemed that his voice had become hoarse because he hadn’t talked in a long time. Under the dim light, he pursed his thin lips and stared at her, waiting for her to answer.
Gong Yimo opened her mouth, but she didn’t know how to respond. At that moment, she was pulled into Gong Jue’s embrace!
“Royal Sister… stay by my side!”
Gong Yimo’s chin knocked against Gong Jue’s shoulder. She could feel how his body was shivering because of how tense it was. His eagerness and happiness, mixed with grief–she was able to sense all his emotions.
She felt a little panicked as he held her tighter and tighter.
“If I can, I would melt you into a part of me! That way, we will never be apart again!”
His words awakened Gong Yimo from her senses!
She gently pushed him, but Gong Jue didn’t even move an inch. Gong Yimo was afraid that she might injure and upset him, so she asked in her gentlest tone, “You… really like me?”
Although she may run away from her problems, she would not shrink back in fear when she really needed to face it. Since everything had already proceeded up to this point, it was better to make everything clear!
