- Rebirth of the Tyrant's Pet: Regent Prince Is Too Fierce
- Chapter 289 - Calm Before the Storm (2)
Her words made Gong Jue’s heart ache. He loved her so much, but why didn’t she feel anything for him at all? She told him that young people were eager to learn about the opposite sex, but she was also young like he was. Why does it feel like her heart was frozen in ice, without a single trace of desire?
But the most sorrowful of it all was how he still couldn’t bear to force Gong Yimo. It took a lot out of him to muster up the courage to do this, but that courage still vanished when he saw her tears. He could only grit his teeth for loving her too deeply, and not being able to bear hurting her in the slightest.
When has he, Gong Jue, ever been so careful with anyone in his life?!
Seeing that Gong Jue had stopped moving, Gong Yimo actually felt a little touched. Perhaps…Gong Jue was a good person. It’s just that she was burdened with too many responsibilities in her past life, too much blood, betrayals, and torture that discouraged her from the path of love.
She has made a vow to Buddha never to love another person in this life.
Gong Jue actually managed to catch her silence, as well as the fear and despair deep within the depths of her eyes. It felt like his heart had been carved by that look in her eyes. Why…Why would someone like her, so free and easy in life, be so afraid in love?
There seemed to be a thick wall within her heart that rejected all love. He thought it was just towards him, but was it the same for everyone else?
What…did she experience?
Gong Jue didn’t understand, but he felt even more dispirited. He hoped that he could be there for every part of her life, but there were secrets that she would never be willing to say.
When he thought of that, he finally found his determination. He put a pill in his mouth and leaned down. Prying open her mouth, he fed it to her directly. In the end, he still didn’t forget to savor the kiss.
As their lips met, Gong Yimo widened her eyes to look at him in surprise. Unlike his infatuation and desire, she did not feel any joy in this at all. Both of her eyes were as cold as ice!
Gong Jue seemed to have been stung by that gaze. He held her and helped her lay down before whispering in a whisper.
“I’m sorry…I won’t force you, but I must feed you this strength scattering pill…It’s always hard to guard against you…I realized it earlier when you pushed me, you’ve already recovered half of your strength.”
Gong Yimo was silent for a moment. Just as Gong Jue thought that she was unwilling to speak with him out of anger, Gong Yimo suddenly turned to face him, and took the initiative to hold him in her arms!
The sweet fragrance that suddenly came forth made him wrap his arms around her. Her sudden change made Gong Jue feel a little helpless.
He could not understand what happened, but he didn’t dare to move at all in case this was all just a dream!
But Gong Yimo patted his back, and he could hear her tired voice from above.
“Sleep, I know you’re tired.”
Those words made Gong Jue’s heart tremble, and his sorrow was revealed.
The breathing of the two gradually entwined, and just as Gong Jue thought that Gong Yimo had fallen asleep, she suddenly said, “Pay more attention to the South King tomorrow…”
Gong Jue raised his head, surprised, but ended up meeting her dazzling eyes. Both her eyes looked cheerful and pleasant.
“Did you forget what I taught you? Your knowledge is extensive, and your memory is commendable. As long as you can seize the opportunities, you will become the most outstanding man in this entire world.”
When he heard that, Gong Jue suddenly looked at her, and his eyes were glimmering like a young doe.
“If I am so outstanding, why are you not touched by me at all?”
Gong Yimo continued to pat his back, but she closed her eyes.
Even though there were many questions he wanted to ask, her sudden gentleness made it so that Gong Jue didn’t do anything for a moment. Even if he wanted to move, he didn’t want to destroy this short moment of harmony they had. He even wondered, was he able to move her just a little bit with his first step?
If that was the case, then he was truly happy.
With that sense of happiness, he quickly fell asleep. The two of them fell asleep holding each other, just like they did when they were young.
