Chapter 301: Beast (2)
At this moment, the sound of galloping hooves could be heard from a distance. Narrowing her eyes, Gong Yimo raised her head, while Gong Shi and his men gradually became alarmed.
No matter who came at this moment, it was bad news for him!
He watched Gong Yimo with his eyes deep with resentment. It was so close! Just a little more and he would have succeeded!
But the struggle goes on. He did not capture Gong Yimo today, and though he it was infuriating! He who was without any outside help and with such heavy losses, he could only swallow this down as a huge loss! Gritting his teeth, he left with his men before the cavalry arrived.
One of the horses left its position and quickly rushed towards her. That man had a face like finely carved jade. Even in the deep night, he was still dazzling like a pearl.
Shen Shiye’s voice seemed to have drained all the energy from Gong Yimo in an instant. She fell down to one knee, and she held Gong Jue tightly with both her hands!
Shen Shiye left his men to chase the ones who were escaping while he himself crouched down in front of Gong Yimo. He wanted to reach out to brush back her hair that was messy with blood and sweat, but he did not dare to do it as if he was afraid of breaking her.
“What…What happened to you?”
He was still in an anxious state, but Gong Yimo solemnly handed him the person in her arms.
When Shen Shiye saw that it was Gong Jue, he was even more shocked!
“Help me…take care of him.”
Her voice was so light he could barely hear her.
“What about you?!”
Gong Yimo smiled. There could only be one reason why Shen Shiye would appear her, and it was that the emperor had confirmed that she was still alive and sent Shen Shiye to capture her. So, at this moment, she could no longer look back.
Sure enough, after saying this, Shen Shiye shut his mouth with a very troubled look and watched her in worry.
Gong Yimo fed herself a rejuvenation dan and felt the faint warmth emanating from her dantian, and only then was she able to recover slightly.
“I have no place to stand in the capital right now…so I will take my leave.”
Then, she pursed her chapped lips and looked at Gong Jue who looked to be asleep and smiled as she let out a sigh of relief.
“I…will entrust him to you.”
Shen Shiye wanted to speak, but for him who had received the emperor’s orders, he could not say anything…not even to tell her to stop and recover from her injury.
Gong Yimo looked at Gong Jue again, and she pondered for a moment. She lowered her head and spoke in a quiet whisper by his ear, “You said you love me, so bring out your strength when we meet again!”
She did not make any promises or give him any encouragement. This was just her usual style to say these words that were just like provocations.
But without a doubt, this meant that she recognized his ability, and was even giving him an opportunity. To see her loosen up, Gong Jue would definitely be overjoyed if he were awake!
After that, she took a deep look at Gong Jue. Then, she got up to leave. Shen Shiye couldn’t help himself from asking, “Where are you going!”
Gong Yimo did not answer him, but though the figure who stood so proudly looked in such a bad state at this moment, she had an aura of might! The land was so vast, where could she not go?
She was born an eagle, not a canary to be raised in someone’s house. Watching that figure that was gradually engulfed by the night, Shen Shiye could only smile helplessly.
It was this very reason that he liked her.
Well, he had been sent by the emperor to capture her, but he just watched her leave. He did not know how he was going to deal with this matter, but he resigned himself to his fate and hauled Gong Jue up to his horse and entered the city.
Gong Jue was incredibly silent. Shen Shiye couldn’t help but think that if he were awake, that he definitely would not let her leave just like that. But he did not know the changes Gong Jue had gone through after this night. His face was just like a perfect sculpture under the moonlight, but his eyes seemed to have moistened.
