Chapter 303: Rescued (2)
“Oh…You’re finally awake!”
Hearing the familiar voice, Gong Yimo opened her eyes and was dazzled by the beautifully dazzling face that surpassed that of a woman’s.
Just seeing his gaze alone made the carriage look much brighter, but she heard him sigh, “What would have happened to our deal if you didn’t wake up? I can’t just have my money drifting off like that.”
Gong Yimo’s mouth twitched. “Don’t worry, as long as there’s one breath left in me, you…cough…you’ll definitely get your money!”
Jin Yun smiled and made a disdaining glance at her on purpose. “It’s bad to lie. I can see it, you’re just a penniless and homeless little girl. So tell me, where are you going to get the money?”
Gong Yimo was speechless.
Indeed, she had no foothold in Dayu, and her money is all with Gong Jue. In order to prevent Gong Jue from finding her, she definitely would not be able to make use of these resources. So, she truly was penniless, everything was gone!
She rolled her eyes and grumbled as she laid down.
“As expected, my fate is not with the riches. It’s all gone again—”
Her exaggerated appearance made Jin Yun smiled. As an adult man, one could say he was at the peak of his beauty. He was a little more firm now, and a little less delicate. His handsome face was finally able to offer some comfort to Gong Yimo.
Fortunately, though she was completely broke, she still had beautiful men to look at. This isn’t so bad after all.
She rubbed her tummy and felt a little hungry. When she saw the food and wine on the short table beside her, she quickly recovered her spirits and climbed up to wolf it all down. When she saw Jin Yun’s disgust, she chuckled.
“Hey, so how did you find me? And how long was I unconscious for?”
Of course, Jin Yun would not tell her that he had hidden himself among Yuheng’s people who had come for prayers. He had not planned to expose himself, but when he heard someone mention that Gong Yimo might still be alive while he was at the posthouse, he could sit still no longer and ran out with his men. However, he couldn’t figure out the directions, so he could only search around the edges of the capital in a foolish attempt to find her.
But he was lucky.
When everyone thought that Gong Yimo had landed in the hands of Shen Shiye, which also meant the emperor, he found her lying in a haystack.
So, he answered in a nonchalant manner, “I was just about to return to my country, but who would have known that I’d bump into you? So I just picked you up and took you with me. As for how long you’ve been unconscious for, perhaps around four or five days?”
Hearing that, Gong Yimo touched her stomach. No wonder she was so hungry.
“Did you say…return to your country?”
Jin Yun shot her a glance, and his dewy eyes were filled with charm.
“And if not? You no longer have any standing in Dayu, so you should just come to Yuheng with me and have some fun!”
Gong Yimo was shocked. But thinking about it, what he said sounded pretty good. This stupid place gave her nothing but trouble, she couldn’t stay here any longer!
So, she took one angry bite of her biscuit and said with a mouth full of food, “Alright! To Yuheng we go!”
Jin Yun smiled happily.
Yuheng…An elliptically-shaped country sandwiched between Louye and Dayu. The smallest of the four major countries. A country with mixed customs, with both the valiance of the nomads and the elegance of the Southern Han. It was a very special place.
Only, Yuheng’s royalty had blind admiration for Dayu’s prosperity, but they had only learned from their extravagance, so they were already seeing the beginnings of their defeat.
Their carriage smoothly arrived at Yuheng. As soon as the common folk saw Jin Yun’s carriage, they all began to cheer.
“The second prince is back!”
Everyone began spreading the news, and many young ladies were throwing their own silk handkerchiefs onto the cart. Gong Yimo clicked her tongue as she watched the scene.
“I never thought you’d be so popular in your country…”
