Chapter 337: One Year Later (2)
She heard that he had personally set up the prison. There are countless horrifying punishments in prison, hardly anyone who entered were able to leave it alive.
All in all, it meant that the emperor favored Gong Jue so much that the emperor trust him without any doubt.
Not only did he hold half of the imperial guards under his command, but he was also able to punish corrupt officials. It can be said that he was above 10,000 men but only under one. This was because Gong Che wasn’t there right now, it was still unknown what kind of turbulent will Gong Che create when he returns.
At this moment, Jin Yun was walking in her direction from a distance.
The pleasantly warm sunlight shrouded him in a halo. His appearance was extremely delicate and handsome, the sadness and distress between his eyebrows disappeared. He was glowing from the top to the bottom, his white robe fluttered gently as he walked, creating a sense of dazzling beauty.
Gong Yimo watched as everyone passing by greeting and bowing to him, but she continued to sit motionlessly on the abor. While she drank the herbal tea, she examined him with narrowed eyes. Gong Yimo watched everyone bowing to him, but she deliberately sat beneath the arbor without any movement while drinking herbal tea and examining him with her eyes narrowed.
During the past year, Jin Yun had a change of fortune and gained status. He was both beautiful and rich, the number of girls who wants to marry him could be lined up from the palace all the way to the border. Imperial Consort Yun had also hosted a “selection of consorts” for him many times. However, each time they were all rejected by him because they were “fated.”
It was to the extent that Gong Yimo would narcissitically thought this person couldn’t have fallen for me, right?
At this time, Jin Yun drew near the arbor. He watched the workers busily digging the canal. He half jokingly said, “I heard that you have an extremely powerful weapon in your hand that can cut through mountains and rivers. What happened? Are you too scared to use it?”
Gong Yimo poured him a cup of herbal tea and replied with a smile, “It’s not the right time to use it yet!”
Taking joy in his misfortune, Gong Yimo asked, “Why are you here? Didn’t your mother consort said that she won’t let you out until you pick a concubine?”
“Talking about my mother consort…” He glanced at Gong Yimo, “My mother misses you. She would always ask why you don’t go to the palace to visit her.”
“Forget it.” Gong Yimo shrugged her shoulder, “Yuheng Palace is too messy, I’m not going.”
Yuheng Palace can be described as extravagant to the extreme!
They imitated their ancestors by digging wine ponds. The palace maids around the wine ponds can only dress in light gauze and each and everyone of them are a beauty. The scent of the wine and meat would mix with the fragrance from the palace maids there. The continuous music combined with the beauties made the people partying there forget what day it was.
She heard that Jin Sheng was indulging in it everyday, so that Jin Yun was in charge of reading all the memorials sent to the emperor.
Talking about this, Jin Yun smiled awkwardly. He didn’t know how to describe it but his mother consort had changed. She was obviously the same person but she sometimes she was a little scary.
For example, the wine pond was built under Yun Jin’s instructions.
She still cared for him, but the way she looked at him was weird, but he couldn’t explain what was wrong with it.
Gong Yimo now raised the cup to toast.
She said faintly, “You have to be careful of your mother.”
Jin Yun laughed, he was about to say that she was joking when Gong Yimo continued.
“I’m serious about this”
She looked towards a random spot outside of the arbor and revealed a meaningful smile. It was impossible for a fragile and cowardly person to suddenly become brave and powerful, the only way she could have achieved that was by distorting reality. In the end, she will turn into a psychopath.
“Let’s not talk about this anymore.”
Jin Yun suddenly shifted the subject, “I won’t be able to leave for the next two days, but I’ve already sent a message to the crown prince of Da Yu regarding the matter of our cooperation on the canal. He was very moved by our offer and asked me to send someone to get in contact with one of his subordinates. That subordinate is in charge of building the tributary rivers that we needed. I hope that you can take my place and meet him.”
