Chapter 353: He Will Not Kill (2)
Information about Yunding Mountain flashed past Gong Jue’s mind, but there was only very little of it. This place was very low-key and mysterious, but it was well-known in the far south.
“Are the techniques you used earlier unique to Yunding Mountain?” Gong Jue asked again.
Only then did Qiu Xingfeng came to the realization that the two of them were on the same martial path, and he couldn’t help but feel a little surprised.
“That’s right, but…Why do you know it as well?” He eyed Gong Jue suspiciously. Could it be, he still had a martial brother he had no knowledge of?
His words caused Gong Jue to think even more deeply. If that was true, then why did his imperial sister know it? And she even knew it very well.
So, Gong Jue did not respond. Instead, he questioned him strongly. “Do you know Gong Yimo?”
Qiu XIngfeng and Long Hanyan both repeated that name in their hearts. Qiu Xingfeng felt confused, but all Long Hanyan felt was resentment!
She never expected to hear Gong Jue speak the name of another woman today, and she wouldn’t accept it even if she took care of him when he was young! So, silently, the noted that name that was so widely spread in Dayu down in her heart with a sense of resentment.
“Don’t know her,” Qiu Xingfeng replied.
Gong Jue frowned slightly.
He was most curious about Gong Yimo’s origins. She was too mysterious. She knew everything and she had a brought mind, as if nothing could trouble her, nor was she afraid of anyone in the world.
But where exactly did she come from? And why was she so different from the other women in this world?
When he saw Qiu Xingfeng nod dazedly, Gong Jue’s frown deepened.
Suddenly, he felt frustrated. Forget it, he’ll find out all of his imperial sister’s secrets one day. He didn’t have to be in such a hurry right now.
At this moment, some other people ran over. When they saw the people lying all over the ground, they thought they were assassins and quickly went on full alert. However, when Luo Qi saw Zhaoqing County’s princess, he couldn’t help but sigh.
This woman didn’t understand their royal highness at all. The reason why their lord did not deal with her back in the capital was only because he did not wish to break off friendly relations with the empress dowager just yet.
Since she came all the way here without knowing the trouble she put herself in, then His Highness is not likely to let her go now.
Only, who was this other young person? Was he also paid to come help out?
Long Hanyan actually felt a little scared now. She kept getting the feeling that Gong Jue’s gaze on her was laced with a hint of killing intent. So, she slowly inched behind Qiu Xingfeng, feeling both wronged and dissatisfied.
Qiu Xingfeng was also keeping his guard. This person felt very strong, but not in the martial arts sense, but there was a sort of pressure surrounding him that caused one’s hair to rise. He couldn’t help but stay cautious.
But who would have expected that Gong Jue would actually just shoot them a look and let them go!
“You can go.”
After he said that, he sat back down in his carriage, leaving the people at the scene in disbelief! Luo Qi and the others were thinking that their lord would not be so kind to these people who offended him, much less Long Hanyan. He was even trying to kill her earlier, so why did he let her go now?
Only Qiu Xingfeng was feeling overjoyed. Without even a pause, he pulled Long Hanyan with hi and left.
Meanwhile, Long Hanyan was stunned. When she was pulled away, all she could feel were the goosebumps on her back as if something was staring at her, causing her to stay obedient. Even though she wanted to, she still didn’t dare to look back.
It wasn’t until their figures disappeared did Gong Jue finally lowered the curtains, and narrowed his eyes.
That man seemed rather young, and also quite foolish. He might really have no idea about his imperial sister at all, but they had to be related to her. So, when he doesn’t have a good grasp of the situation…
He will not kill.
