Chapter 296: Draining Half of the Blood (1)
But the truth proved her wrong!
She never took other people into consideration, so she thought that she alone was taking this path. However, she didn’t expect that the person who longed to be with her also took this route!
That person wanted to catch her, protect her, and be entangled in her life! Did she also become entangled with him? Did she start the disaster unconsciously?
What was all this really for?
Gong Yimo couldn’t figure it out.
She doesn’t want a lover; she doesn’t want it! She suffered enough pain by loving, enough pain by yearning for love constantly, enough pain caused by gaining and losing love, especially the pain of going to hell after the betrayal of her most loved and trusted ones!
How wonderful it was to be free and alone. Even if everything was completely messed up, it was just a life. She doesn’t need to be accountable for any emotional burdens; her death would be unrestrained.
So, please don’t become entangled with her affairs, she was fine being alone!
The sound of flowing water echoed in Gong Yimo’s ear. This must be the branch of the Long Teng river from Jingcheng. The surface of the water was the perfect size; she jumped across the bridge and cut the rope bridge.
A pleasant feeling filled her body the moment that the bridge broke with its pieces dropped into the water!
Let it end like this! She doesn’t want to get involved in any of the affairs of Jingcheng anymore!
As she turned, a voice from far away stopped her. The voice was embedded with fear.
Gong Jue didn’t know why he had to call her from such a far distance. He looked at her as she turned around, the edges of her clothes fluttered in the wind; she appeared as if she was leaving everything behind. This made him panic! If he didn’t call her right now, maybe he won’t have another chance in the future!
Recognizing Gong Jue, Gong Yimo started to panic.
After being aware of his feelings toward her, his strong emotions seemed monstrous and catastrophic to her! He came to restrain her! He wanted to intrude her life and all of her affairs!
Having this thought in her head, she suddenly positioned the sword on her own neck.
“Don’t come over!”
She looked at Gong Jue coldly; she looked at him like she was looking at her enemy; an enemy who seek to drag her down to hell! The edge of the sword was radiating a cold light, as if she would kill herself if he moved one step closer.
Under the moonlight, Gong Jue saw the most resolute and heartless expression that he had never seen before.
So he stopped automatically, standing on the opposite end of the river. The two of them came to confrontation.
He was gasping for breath lightly and his whole lung was stinging because of how fast he rushed here. But he continued to stare at her without blinking, fearing that she will disappear if he blinked.
“Royal sister… don’t go.”
Gong Yimo continued to look at him coldly, but her tone softened, “Gong Jue, you can’t protect me. If I turn back now, either those people will steal the gunpowder from me, or the emperor will chase me down and kill me.”
Tonight’s movement was too large, if the emperor didn’t find out she was still alive, then the emperor will not be the emperor.
“No, he won’t!” Gong Jue yelled hastily, “Father emperor likes you so much, he won’t bear it!”
Gong Yimo laughed, “Gong Jue… I know him way better than you. In front of his wild ambitions, his love for me is trivial… Go back, there’s not a single place in Jingcheng meant for me to live!”
“Even if it’s for me?!”
Gong Jue suddenly screamed! He breathed heavily with the heartbreaking pain.
His chest felt stuffy, it was as if a sword had penetrated his heart. The pain spread through his body, to his limbs and bones. It felt like the pain was slowly tearing his limbs one by one! But even if it was that painful, he was still unwilling to let go. He won’t let go!
“They want to catch you, then I’ll defend you! If they want to kill you, I’ll protect you! If the emperor doesn’t love you, I love you!”
He walked a few steps closer to the edge of the river, “Stay for me, please?” He looked at her beggingly.
