Chapter 350: His Heart (1)
So, as soon as he appeared, she was able to catch sight of him in an instant and could no longer move her gaze away.
At this moment, a woman had been dragged out from the door. She was crying and struggling desperately. Especially when she saw Gong Jue, she seemed to have found an unknown source of strength and broke free from their control, falling straight down at Gong Jue’s feet and hugged his ankle desperately.
Gong Jue’s gaze finally moved away from his account books onto her. His eyes were cold, and the frosty feeling from being looked down from above like that, he didn’t look much like a fine prince, but instead a wicked man here to destroy her entire family!
The woman looked at him and sobbed painfully.
“My Royal Highness! Please! Let me go! I don’t want to go to the academy(a state-run brothel for women who committed crimes)! Please, mercy!”
She cried her lungs out, and you could say there was hardly any beauty left in her. However, Gong Jue had only stared at her lightly and did not move.
At this moment, the woman finally moved back a little and wiped her face messily with her sleeve. She raised her head and said, “Or please, I ask His Royal Highness to please accept me. Whether slave or servant, I’m fine with it! I can do it!”
She tried her best to give her a better description, but when it came to that face swollen from crying, there was hardly any beauty to be found.
Naturally, when the guards that were holding her earlier saw no movement from Gong Jue, they did not dare to act either. They only stood at the side, watching. But unexpectedly, they saw Gong Jue leaning down and helping the woman up.
The woman was surprised and panic-stricken, she looked at him in fright as she sobbed, but did not dare to make any noise. Only, her eyes revealed her anticipation.
However, she was suddenly pushed into the arms of the guards!
“Send her to the academy.”
Blood drained from her face in an instant and she screamed! But this time, she was held tight and dragged straight out!
This was clearly a very cruel action, but in Long Hanyan’s eyes, it wasn’t that terrible at all!
Especially when the other man raised his hand. Someone passed him a snow-white handkerchief and he carefully wiped his hands with it…Those slender joints of his fingers, and the tips of them that seemed to glow brightly under the sun. Elegant, calm, noble, and fascinating…
Perhaps she may even find excuses to justify his behavior in her heart. Clearly he was able to change a woman’s destiny with just a single word, but he did not do so. He definitely had his own difficulties!
At least that was what Long Hanyan thought during then. What’s more, she had fallen for him at first glance and vowed to marry him!
No matter what his status was!
After that, when the empress dowager found out about her thoughts, she did not object to it and even felt a little delighted. The niece that she wanted to match with Gong Jue in the beginning actually eloped with another man! So now she no longer had the pride to bring up marriage to Gong Jue any longer. But when she saw Long Hanyan, her thoughts began to liven up again, and she supported her in taking the initiative.
She also promised that no matter what happens, she would definitely help out Long Hanyan so that she may be more courageous. And so, an inconceivable thought actually arose within her mind!
It was quiet in the woods and Long Hanyan was hiding behind the bushes. Because of that thought, her heart was throbbing hard! All she could hear in her ear was the beating of pumping of her blood.
Suddenly, some people from the distance were approaching, and their numbers were quite large!
Luo Qi and the others immediately went on alert. Then, bringing along his men, he went over to them!
But these were just the mountain people Long Hanyan had brought in after spending quite some money. When they saw someone chasing over, they all turned around and ran, confusing Luo Qi.
Then, a faint smoke rose up in the air. Long Hanyan thought proudly to herself that this was Yunding Mountain’s special incense. She doesn’t believe that it won’t get them!
