Chapter 313: A Conspiracy Begins (2)
“His Highness should prepare as soon as possible. I have heard that a noble guest from Louye is here!” After that, he sauntered off arrogantly.
His words surprised Jin Yun. After they left, he called someone over to ask, “Why is it such a commotion that a guest from Louye is coming? Go and investigate, then come back and report to me.”
“Yes!” That person’s figure flickered, and he quickly hurried off. It could be seen that he was a martial arts master.
Gong Yimo had been watching all of that. Even though Jin Yun had a passive position, he had money, and he was a good person, so there were still people who would work for him sincerely. In addition to the conveniences of his other identity, there was a lot of information that could not be hidden from him, and so he was not as passive as expected.
In the time it took for him to change his clothes, that person returned and whispered to him, “It is indeed an aristocrat from Louye. It is the falcon king of Louye, his name is Lu Cha. I do not know why, but the king of Louye does not see kindly to him.”
Jin Yun thought about it and asked, “Since they have prepared a banquet, even if it was a secret meeting, I should not be the only person called, correct?”
That person answered, “I have asked earlier. Besides our mansion, both the Crown Prince and the dukes’ residences have received the sacred decree. Strangely enough, not a single official is going. From what I heard from the matchmaker, his lordship has come to discuss a major event, and it seemed to be related to Dayu.”
Jin Yun waved his hand to dismiss him and expressed that he had understood.
After he left, Gong Yimo slowly sauntered out and raised a brow. “The Falcon King Lu Cha?”
She turned her eyes thoughtfully.
Jin Yun said, “What, you even know about the intricacies of Louye’s royal family?”
Gong Yimo chuckled. “You overestimate me. I do not know about the details, but I know that the duke has some little-known hobbies. It is precisely these hobbies that he incurred the king of Louye’s dislike.”
When he heard that, Jin Yun quickly poured her a cup of tea. “If I may, please allow me to request the princess’ advice.”
If this was any other day, Gong Yimo would definitely joke with him. But now, she was a little hesitant. She looked at him and wondered whether she should say it or not.
“…His Lordship Lu Cha stands nine feet tall, has a body as strong as a beast, and can eat more than ten pounds of meat in each meal! He is also very strong, and is a famed warrior in Louye! Only, his needs in…that area are much fiercer compared to normal. Women often can’t stand it, so…”
When he heard up to this point, Jin Yun’s face paled, and he could not help himself from clenching his hands into fists.
“Many people’s lives have been ruined because of that, so the king of Louye is very unhappy with him, believing that he has corrupted the reputation of the royal family.”
“That’s impossible, I am the emperor’s child!”
Gong Yimo smiled. “Now, I didn’t say that it had to be like that…” She frowned and went on, “Only…your father clearly does not like you very much. He is having a secret meeting with the duke of Louye, and yet he asked you to go. You…should still be wary.”
Jin Yun went silent. The more he thought about it, the more ridiculous he felt it was. Gong Yimo must be overthinking it.
But she was just showing her concern, so he nodded to express that he will take note of it.
After understanding the situation, he got ready to enter the Palace. However, he had not wanted to bring Gong Yimo with him. After all, she had a beautiful appearance. She would stand out even among men if he were to dress her up as a man. What would they do if the duke took a fancy to her?
But Gong Yimo waved her hand indifferently.
“Don’t worry, I won’t go with you. I just want to go to the cold palace. I’m going to go see your mother…just to have a little chat.”
