Chapter 339: The Consequences of Listening and Not Listening (2)
It was very simple to put on a disguise. The difficult part was mimicking the charm of a person. For example, a scholar. One would need to mimic his refined and noble temperament. For example, someone who made a living from performing. One would need to mimic their arrogant but inferior feeling. They had to have contradicting gazes.
After a while of contact, Gong Yimo was able to act as an elderly without disguising herself. Her expressions and actions made her seem like an actual elderly. She enjoyed seeing Jin Yun’s strange look while looking at her performance.
After experiencing all sorts of obstacles, she was skilled at the job. This time, she hynoposized herself in her heart, making herself a skilled manipulator who traveled extensively with a meticulous mind. She won’t be recognized! Then, she headed out.
She headed southward, towards Da Yu!
In the capital’s Qi WangFu, twenty or so people kneeled on the ground. They clearly arrived here right after the morning imperial court session was done. They didn’t even have time to change out of their official clothes. From their ranks, they were actually all important figures!
There was a young man laying on bed. One could say he was a young man but he seemed to be more mature and indifferent than others. One could say he was an adult but it felt like he didn’t know the truth of the world from his cold and cheerless eyes.
If strangers were here, they would be confused. Who exactly was this young man and why wasn’t he speaking? Why were the people kneeling afraid of him?
“What did you just say?”
His clear voice rang. It was a burning summer day but the temperature in the room was freezing cold. The leader’s teeth chattered.
“You said that you failed?”
The young man slightly raised his eyebrows. His pitch-black eyes landed on the leader. He shivered and hurriedly kowtowed at him.
“Please give this official another chance! This time, the Fourth Prince was just lucky. Next time, this official won’t disappoint this Prince’s expectations!
Seeing that Gong Jue wasn’t responding, his face turned pale. He suddenly raised his voice and it seemed hurried. He kowtowed him again!
“Please trust this official again! Please show some mercy and don’t expose this official’s crimes! This official will swear on his life! Next time, this official will make sure the Fourth Prince will lose his status!
After saying this, he led the group of people and bowed down. He didn’t dare to say anything else for fear of annoying him. They all trembled while they waited for Gong Jue’s final decision.
Gong Jue stared at the group of people and faintly smiled.
In the past, Royal Sister said that greedy officials were the smartest, bravest, and most meticulous in the country. Although they were hated by many, if they were manipulated to one’s wishes, they would be a great weapon!
Therefore, he did everything he could to gain the Emperor’s trust. He used the Emperor’s imperial sword to start the Zhao Prison. He became the first person who fought against the greedy people in public!
All the greedy officials were afraid of him because there were only two consequences if he found out about their motives.
The first one was that he will suppress the evidence and have the greedy official do something for him. If they were successful, he would overlook the matter. As long as he didn’t catch any other information to use against them in the future, they basically escaped from the consequences.
But if it was something simple, how could it be worthy of a life? He wanted people to do something extremely difficult. Danger and opportunity co-existed.
The second was that if you didn’t agree and hoped that someone would save you, go ahead and believe that. However, Gong Jue would have the Emperor kill their entire family off! When the time comes, not only would they have to witness their family’s deaths, but also be sent to Zhao Prison. Whether you would live until the day you were saved or not, depended on your destiny.
