Chapter 287: Can’t Bear to Hurt Her (2)
Xin’er thought about it and said, “Except for the emperor’s birthday celebration, there is the crown prince’s upcoming marriage!”
It seemed as if she was intentionally trying to tell Gong Yimo something as she gave her a detailed account of the news.
“The crown prince probably really likes the young lady from the Su Family because he personally asked the emperor for an imperial decree to marry her. After this year, the crown prince needs to go to Huai River, so the wedding is scheduled to be one month later.”
After hearing the news, Gong Yimo sighed softly, she didn’t know what Gong Che was thinking. Although she wasn’t someone who would waste time on an insoluble problem, Gong Che had confessed his love to her, but the next day he went and appointed another person as his princess consort. And this person was her opponent in her previous life. It was quite uncomfortable after she thought about it.
However, she can’t dictate another person’s life, so she could only let it go.
“Is there anything else?”
Seeing that Gong Yimo was uninterested, Xin’er continued.
“There’s nothing much, but the city has been very lively in the past few days. Many people who were bestowed the title of a prince and marquis that were appointed to defend the fiefdoms, has returned. They also brought a lot of rare treasures, so many commoners are watching on the streets. I heard that Prince Xiang from the Northwest has brought back a huge eagle with golden feathers on top of its head to present it to His Majesty!”
Prince Xiang… the emperor’s oldest child, he had been sent to a fiefdom when he was young. Gong Yimo’s heart skipped a beat, after Da Yu split up into pieces in her previous life, the strength of Prince Xiang wasn’t shallow. He can be considered to be the biggest dark horse, but it seemed like he had yet to make a name for himself in this world. He’s probably pretending to be a pig to prey on the tiger right now.
“There is also Prince Nan.” Da Yu has three princes with different surnames: Prince Ping, Prince Zhen Xi, and Prince Nan. Prince Nan likes to indulge in sensual pleasures and drink every day, so people often forget about him.
TLN: Princes with different surnames are not royalties by blood. They are bestowed titles by the emperor, so they’re not real princes.
“Prince Nan is from the extreme south which is close to our neighboring small country. I heard that this time, he will present a very mystical item to His Majesty.”
A very mystical item? Gong Yimo didn’t really care, when she arrived at JingCheng in her last life, the emperor was already 52, so she doesn’t know what happened in this birthday celebration.
In her last life, the emperor had a violent temper, he was sick and his body was weak. As a result, he gradually became muddleheaded. However in this world, at least up until now, the emperor a bright and clear headed ruler.
Now that she thought about it, she felt like something was strange…
Time quickly passed by and in the blink of an eye, it was the emperor’s birthday celebration tomorrow.
Gong Yimo held her quilt as she thought about her escape plan! Gong Jue had been living at the palace for the past two days. Tomorrow was such a crucial day, so he definitely won’t return. She needed to think carefully about how she can utilize the big day tomorrow…
It had been quite peaceful at night these past few days in Prince Qi’s Residence, making Gong Yimo feel restless. It seemed like it wasn’t only her who was going to take advantage of Gong Jue’s absence tomorrow. For those people that had been spying on her, tomorrow will be their best opportunity! Maybe, they might even provide her with a chance to escape!
She thought about her plans tomorrow and then fell asleep. Suddenly, she felt like someone was nibbling on her lips in the middle of the night.
Besides Gong Jue, there was no one who would dare to do something like this in Prince Qi’s Residence. Gong Yimo opened her eyes and just as she had expected, it was Gong Jue. Gong Yimo glared at him and pushed him away, she had used a lot of strength to push him away. This made Gong Jue slightly stunned.
Gong Yimo quickly changed the topic!
“You… how did you come back?”
When he heard what she had said, he loosened the collar of his clothes. Even his casual appearance right now was so pleasant and delightful to the eye.
“The imperial palace is too cold and cheerless, so I wanted to come back.”
Although he said that, the truth was… he missed her too much, and he was afraid that she will leave.
