Chapter 348: Long Hanyan’s Pursuit (1)
Long Hanyan, the biological niece of Empress Dowager, was raised by Empress Dowager due to the early death of her parents and her weak body. She was favored by Empress Dowager very much, and she was given the title of Princess Zhao Qing when Empress Dowager asked the emperor to bestow her a title.
But Hanyan’s health became worse and worse as time went on. In order to help her regain her health, Empress Dowager entrusted the Daoist Masters from Yunding Mountain to take care of her when they visited the imperial palace. Hanyan just returned to Da Yu half a year ago.
Empress Dowager was elated upon her return. She was even more elated about the recovery of her health, so she didn’t refrain Hanyan even when she acted like one of those chivalrous ladies.
Now that Hanyan turned 16, Empress Dowager rushed to pick a husband for her, but who would have thought that she didn’t like any of them. Instead, she fell in love with Gong Jue at first sight, the man whom every woman in Jincheng feared.
He had searched and confiscated too many families’ properties. Once their house got searched, those women’s fate became especially tragic. Therefore, in front of fear, all of their affections toward him had faded away, leaving them with only fear.
But Long Hanyan went after him frequently, taking advantage of Empress Dowager’s indulgence. This time, she chased after him all the way outside of the imperial palace.
If they were inside the imperial palace, Gong Jue might have respected her, but now that they were outside of the palace… Gong Jue narrowed his eyes.
If she failed to appreciate his kindness, even though it might be a bit more troublesome, but that doesn’t mean he can’t use physical violence.
Upon seeing how Gong Jue had ruthless asked her to leave without an ounce of emotion, Long Hanyan was discouraged and furious as she raised her neck.
“I won’t move!”
She won’t fear him! She was a chivalrous woman unlike those traditional young ladies.
But who knew that the sedan chair would suddenly shootout a dagger with a speed that she couldn’t react! One of the daggers stabbed her horse; her horse let out a sad cry, and started to leapt forward uncontrollably!
Long Hanyan held on to the reins tightly without any preparation. After the horse stopped, she looked back and saw the carriage continued to march forward!
She let go of the reins and used her qinggong to land on the ground, but she intentionally missed a step and sprained her ankle, falling onto the ground. She cried loudly, “Ouch…elder brother, wuwu… I broke my leg!”
Luo Qi glanced at her and hesitated.
But Gong Jue’s frivolous word appeared inside the carriage.
Don’t bother mentioning about breaking her leg, he won’t turn back to look at her even if she died from it.
Upon seeing the carriage continued onward and knowing that her qinggong couldn’t catch up to his horse, she became discouraged and punched the ground.
She angrily said, “I don’t believe that I can’t catch up to you!”
Hearing Xu Yuan’s reply and his high praises for that person, Gong Che looked at him with a strange expression.
“That Li Huai, I think he’s very ordinary, how did he catch your attention?”
Xu Yuan hit himself on the head and said laughingly, “Silly me! I said it wrong. It wasn’t the previous Li Huai, it was another person.”
Gong Che asked hastily, “Another person?”
He asked rushingly, “Who was it?”
Knowing what the royal prince wanted to know, Xu Yuan lowered his head and answered in a low voice.
“Your Highness, it was a man. He was delayed by some affairs, so he arrived late. Although he looked young, but he was very talented. Judging from the way he speaks and from the personal seal the Yuheng second prince had given him, it was obvious that he was regarded as an important figure.”
Gong Che still asked with hope, “Are you sure it was a man?”
Xu Yuan sighed inwardly and said, “I’m sure.”
Gong Che then frowned, Mo’er, she really didn’t come?
Thinking of it, sadness filled him; he almost couldn’t breath.
He waited for her for so long! Why doesn’t she appear? Does she not know how much he missed her?
