Chapter 302: Rescued (1)
Gong Jue seemed to have been dreaming. In his dreams, she was wearing a tender green organdy dress, and as usual, sitting in the rocking chair under the mottled shade of the tree leaves while the voices of cicadas and birds sang by her ear.
“If that person burdens you so…Hurts you so…Why don’t you let go?”
She tilted her head slightly, seemingly finding it hard to understand.
Gong Jue reached out to touch her, but as if it she was a reflection, he was unable to succeed. But…with curious eyes, she seemed to be looking at him without blinking, waiting for him to answer.
“Because…she makes me happier…”
Gong Jue suddenly opened his eyes!
The first things he saw were the familiar bed curtains. He was in the Qi royal mansion, he was home.
“Your Highness!” When Luo Qi saw that Gong Jue had awoken, he was very surprised. “Your Royal Highness! Do you feel unwell?”
Luo Qi truly was shocked when he saw Shen Shiye bring Gong Jue back. He clearly looked to be asleep, but he could not be awakened no matter what. He had no awareness of the world around him at all, but it was good that he was now awake, it was truly wonderful!
Gong Jue looked at him, confused, and shut his eyes again.
Gong Yimo’s last words to him sounded so clear, and yet so hazy at the same time, just like a dream.
“You said you love me, so bring out your strength when we meet again!”
She seemed to be laughing, and her tone was joyful as if she had performed a successful prank. She still left, but for some reason, though his heart felt sorrowful, he felt even greater satisfaction.
After the stimulation she went through last night, a crack seemed to have formed in her frozen heart. Even though it was a small gap, he believed that besides him, no one else would ever be able to achieve it.
If they meet again…then so be it. He believed that when they do, he will definitely be able to subdue her!
“Your Highness?” Luo Qi called out to him a little worriedly.
Gong Jue shut his eyes, but he responded with another question. “Did they catch the South King yesterday?”
Luo Qi hurriedly responded, “They did. Fortunately, they responded in a timely matter. It was nearly dragged outside of the city!”
At this moment, Gong Jue slowly got up and opened his eyes.
His dark hair dropped down to his chest. When he opened his eyes once more, a light seemed to be swimming in his cold eyes. It was dangerous, but yet shockingly beautiful! He clearly looked the same still, but Luo Qi had the strange feeling that something was different with His Royal Highness. As if something had been broken through, morphing, becoming even more mature and tough!
“Bring the South King. Let us visit the palace.”
Luo Qi was stunned, and after he managed to react to his words, he could not agree with him. Worriedly, he said, “Your Highness, your body has yet to recover, why are you in such a rush to visit the palace?”
Gong Jue smiled, but his eyes were cold.
“Of course, it is so I can quickly go before Father Emperor, and confess my guilt in front of everyone.”
After yesterday, the emperor must be feeling a little distant with him, but that is no cause for concern. He could feel that the emperor still has some sense of pity for his imperial sister. So, he had to seize the opportunity to use this pity, and to make the emperor let go of his imperial sister for now!
After all, she is heavily injured right now. She will not be able to stand being preyed on by those people in the capital…
Moreover, he needed power! What he wanted was much more than just the ability to protect Gong Yimo, but also to turn around and show those people a taste of their medicine, to strike fear in their hearts!
When he thought of that, he clenched his fists. He will definitely achieve it!
When they meet again, he wanted to give her as much peace of mind as he could. He wanted everyone to surrender to them, and to let his imperial sister trample over them!
When Gong Yimo opened her eyes again, she was shocked to find herself on a carriage.
She could not hold on any longer at that time and fainted, but now she felt herself carefully bandaged. Did someone rescue her?
