Chapter 294: The Strongest Individual Fighter (1)
While he was in the cold palace, his royal sister told him a philosophical story.
He still remembered…
On a sunny afternoon, she had an exquisite book in her hand. She waved at him smilingly, signaling him to go over; he was practicing martial arts at the time.
The amount of sunlight that day was perfect as she sat on the rocking chair that he personally gave her. The shade from the tree covered her white and small face from the sun and she could hear the cicadas singing echoed in her ears.
After he came over, she smiled and pointed to a paragraph that he didn’t comprehend.
“Here, let me tell you something interesting.”
A person said to the old monk: “I can’t let go of certain things and certain people.”
The monk said, “There’s nothing you can’t let go.”
“But these people and things are important. I know I can’t keep thinking of them, but I just can’t let go,” the person said.
The monk told him to bring a cup of tear and then he proceeded to pour boiling water into the cup until it overflowed. When the person felt the scalding hot water, he let go of his hands immediately.
The monk said, “There is nothing you can’t let go in this world. Once you feel the pain, then you will naturally let it go.”
“People are selfish because once they attain something, they don’t want to let go. Even if that something has already became a burden. However, they don’t know that they might be able to obtain something even better in the future if they let go of it now.”
He didn’t know whether the last sentence was from the book or if it was added on by his sister. When she mentioned “letting go”, the expression on her young and tender face changed immensely. The expression on her face contrasted against her young age.
“Does that mean that royal sister will also let go?”
The young Gong Jue was a bit puzzled, “If the person and thing are so important, why do you have to let go of them? Just because it’s painful?”
Gong Yimo lift her eyebrows slightly and looked at him, “If you let go because of the pain, then it must be very very painful. It’s the type of pain that people typically wouldn’t understand. It’s like you’re still persisting even though everyone is standing on the opposite side. It’s as if the world can’t tolerate you and people will never understand you…”
She seemed to realize that Gong Jue was seven years old and that he might not understand her. As a result, she rephrased her words.
“Sometimes humans will suffer because of certain people and certain things and it’ll be like a sword has pierced through your heart or it’ll feel like five horses are tied around your limbs, slowly pulling you apart…” She became serious and asked him, “If someone or something becomes a burden, like the pain that the cup of boiled water, are you still not going to let go?”
Little Gong Jue didn’t reply; he felt that Gong Yimo was right, but at the same time was wrong.
And now, that scene appeared in his brain as he ran towards the sound of the explosion.
He can give a clear answer.
The answer was that he will never let go!
Even if it became a burden, even if he was everyone’s enemy, even if the boiled water burnt his hand! He still won’t let go!
Didn’t you say it was an extremely important person?
If that person was more important than your life, why would you fear the pain?!
Gong Yimo used a lot of energy to leave those people behind as she ran towards the opposite direction. Her situation became clear to her at the moment.
She was being protected by Gong Jue all this time, which made her underestimate her own pressure. Now in the bitter wind, she finally recovered her train of thought.
The emperor loved and feared her. If she died, he might let go of her or even yearn for her. But if she continued to live, she will only make him feel unsettled and lie awake at night!
The crown prince loved and hated her! His unattainable love might turn into deep hatred, and hate can distort one’s mind and manipulate them to do something they didn’t mean to. Him getting married… was one result of that budding hatred. There might be other horrible things that he will do later on! And all of his actions were intended to make her see his craziness.
