Chapter 335: Weak (2)
She didn’t rush in, even though her mellow weeping sound made her guilty, it didn’t make her lose her calmness.
“For a long time last night, I hated you!”
After Yun Jin finished speaking, she opened her eyes wide and looked at Gong Yimo.
“I found that time passes faster when I hate someone, so I hated you even more.”
Gong Yimo held the medicine bottle with one hand while her other hand in the air; she looked at Yun Jin with compassion.
“Then why don’t you hate the emperor?” Gong Yimo said lightly, “Why don’t you hate the person who directly abused you and made your life miserable?”
Gong Yimo’s question made Madam Yun Jin opened her mouth slightly, not knowing how to respond.
“It’s because you’re weak!”
Gong Yimo looked at her, her tone was very light, it didn’t seem like she was retorting her at all.
“In your heart, the emperor high and invisible while I am a woman just like you yet I live such a free and unrestrained life. Hating him makes you feel afraid because you don’t think you are his opponent. But hating me is easier because in your heart, women are weak.”
Yun Jin’s face turned pale, it was hard for her to bare for being exposed like that! She held her head and painfully shook it. It wasn’t like that!
“Do you remember the wish you had told me the other day?”
Yun Jin suddenly stopped moving and lowered her head, not making a sound at all.
“You said you wanted to go back to the commoner’s music square to dance and experience the feeling of people admiring your dancing, do you remember?”
When Gong Yimo said this, she felt a little stuffy as she loosened her collar.
“What you said is correct. Sometimes, when I become impulsive, I don’t think about the consequences. So I will ask you right now, do you still want to go? Even if I have to risk my life, I will send you there. I will keep my promise whether it works or not!”
When Yun Jin heard those words, she looked up at her, her eyes were flashing with tears.
“I’m sorry. Let’s pretend what happened that day was all a dream.”
“Because it’s too late…”
After she finished talking, Gong Yimo heard a group of people hurriedly over towards them. From afar, she could hear them laughing and announcing:
“The imperial decree has arrived… I have come to congratulate the concubine!”
Gong Yimo hid herself to the side and in a short while, a group of people walked in. When they saw that Yun Jin’s clothes were in disorder, they quickly came over to help Yun Jin put on her clothes. Yun Jin appeared indifferent throughout the process, it was as if she had changed into another person.
The head eunuch had a smile on his face as he said, “Concubine Yun is sure blessed! His Majesty still hasn’t forgotten you after so many years, it can be seen that he is quite affectionate towards you.”
Yun Jin shot him a glance and the eunuch reacted quickly by patting his mouth with a smile, “Look at this servant’s broken mouth! What Concubine Yun, I meant Imperial Consort Yun! Imperial Consort Yun, please don’t be upset!”
Yun Jin suddenly spoke.
“You said my title wrong.”
The eunuch’s face turned white. Who would’ve imagined that this salted fish in the cold palace would have a change of fortune?
Just as he was thinking of pleasing words to say to her, Yun Jin didn’t even look at him when she said, “Since you had said my title wrong, you can slap yourself.”
Her words stunned everyone, after all, who didn’t know that Yun Jin was a weak character?
But that eunuch wasn’t an ordinary person, he quickly started slapping himself fiercely. The sound of him slapping himself echoed in the cold palace. As he slapped himself, he said, “This servant was wrong, please forgive me.”
Gong Yimo was in the dark, but she was able to clearly see how uneasy and afraid Yun Jin appeared before she had punished the eunuch. But that uneasiness and fear changed to pleasure and confidence.
Since the eunuch slapped himself, Yun Jin finished putting on her clothes.
She glanced at the spot that Gong Yimo was hiding at before she looked around.
She smiled faintly and said, “In the future, I will be Imperial Consort Yun. Burn everything here.”
After she finished speaking, she strode out. When the servants heard her orders, they began to quickly light the candles with fire. What a joke, this person is the emperor’s beloved, she wasn’t someone they could offend!
In the blaze, Gong Yimo followed Yun Jin with her eyes and when the fire began burning, Yun Jin turned back just in time. Although they could not see each other, their gaze seemed to have collided with one another.
One glance and it severed all their relations with one another.
