Chapter 285: Together in One Bed (2)
Gong Yimo walked around the courtyard to help with digestion and to ponder over things.
How can she leave this place? Her space, environment, and memory, which one of those things can she rely on to escape? The last time she left, she was ambushed by the people sent by Imperial Consort Long. Since she didn’t succeed in her first attempt, she might fly into a rage out of humiliation and borrow other people’s hands to kill her…
If she stayed here, she will only burden Gong Jue.
She can’t help but think about the memory she had of her last life. Although many things had deviated from the original plot, some have not…
She suddenly remembered something that surprised her!
The emperor’s birthday feast was coming up soon!
She almost forgot that it was soon the emperor’s 50th birthday! News of this should’ve been everywhere, yet she didn’t get wind of it because she was closed off to the outside world.
After calculating the time, she realized that it will happen three days later…
It was no wonder that Gong Jue had been called to the imperial palace when he had just gotten a little better. He oversaw the safety of the imperial palace, so it would be impossible for him to leave the emperor’s birthday feast… it was very likely that he will not return in the next few days!
This knowledge made Gong Yimo very excited, she still has Clearing Poison pellets in her space. It might help her offset some of the effects of the pill that Gong Jue had given her. Moreover, since Gong Jue wasn’t here, she could peacefully think of ways to leave this place!
But who would’ve thought that after she awakened from her sleep, Gong Jue… was already back!
It was late at night and winter nights were more desolate.
Gong Jue stood in front of Gong Yimo’s room and sighed in relief.
She was still here…
He was supposed to stay in the imperial palace, but he used the excuse that his body was still unwell and that he needed to get treatment from a famous doctor residing in his residence. As a result, he was able to rush back after he finished taking care of the issues.
When he was busy, he didn’t think much of it. But on his way back, he was so scared and afraid that he will only see an empty room.
He gently pushed open the door.
Maybe it was because she thought that he wasn’t coming back soon, Gong Yimo was able to sleep soundly on her bed. Her face was slightly flushed red, and because her inner strength was only a little above an average person, she didn’t even notice that someone had laid next to her.
How big was her heart? A few days ago, the crown prince had confessed to her. She was so terrified at the confession, yet she was still able to calmly resolve it. He had obviously alarmed her many times today, and it was obvious that she wanted to leave. However, she was now sleeping soundly on her bed without suffering from insomnia.
Gong Jue can’t help but lightly sighed, that was his Royal Sister’s character. If she could lie down, then she wouldn’t sit. If she could resolve an issue, she will solve it immediately and if she can’t solve it, she’ll just toss it behind her.
…making people both hate and love her.
Gong Jue felt like his heart was stuffy, so he lightly bit the tip of her nose.
Gong Yimo immediately awakened by his sudden action and was shocked to see Gong Jue lying next to her. She thought she was still dreaming, but the coldness his body was emitting brought her back to her senses. She wrapped her hands around her body and glared at him, “What do you think you’re doing?”
Her appearance amused Gong Jue, he hugged her and rubbed against her like a big cat. He lazily said, “Nothing. I just want to sleep with my Royal Sister.”
His sudden closeness made Gong Yimo’s heart pound rapidly. Her body was tense, she looked like a little beast with its fur standing on its ends, “You… why aren’t you sleeping in your own room?!”
Gong Jue looked up from her bosom and said in a very innocent voice, “My room… is damaged, so I can only squeeze in with you.”
