Chapter 354: Seeing But Still Missing (1)
When Gong Yimo received Xu Yuan’s reply, she felt a little troubled. That was because the letter says that Gong Che actually wanted to see her to show how much he valued her!
Gong Yimo touched her own face. She was still quite confident about her own appearance. But forget it, whether it’s a blessing or not, if he recognizes her, then so be it!
And so, out she went.
It was still Wanhong Inn, in that same elegant room, the same scene. This made her feel slightly nervous.
The instant the door was opened, Gong Yimo could feel a strong gaze on her body. That gaze was piercing, anticipating, and held all sorts of complex emotions. This caused her to pause and look over.
Gong Che was the only person sitting at the tea table within the room. Xu Yuan was not here. This made her feel more cautious as she quickly greeted him.
“You must be His Highness, the crown prince of Dayu. Peerless, as I expected! This inferior one is honored to be in your presence.”
Gong Che’s eyes were tightly locked on her. Hearing her speak word after word, his gaze never moved away, and he only pointed tot he seat in front of him.
When he said this, an undetectable tremor shook his voice.
Gong Yimo felt uneasy being stared at by him in such a way, but she still took the seat. She sat down in a very casual posture, and she had a sincere look to her that made it feel easy to get close to. However, not the slightest shadow of Gong Yimo could be seen on her. This was clearly a man.
After the feeling of disappointment, Gong Che felt extremely unreconciled. He kept looking at her again and again.
Gong Yimo touched her face unconsciously and asked in a very male voice. “Your Highness, is there something wrong with this one’s face?”
Only when that question came out did Gong Che move his eyes away, and his gaze darkened faintly.
Gong Yimo breathed a sigh of relief in her heart. Even though more than a year has passed, her brother the crown prince still did not change much. He was still handsome and his appearance gentle as jade.
The only difference was that tinge of sorrow that could now be seen at his brow that tugged at one’s heartstrings, wanting to help him ease his worries and to smooth out that wrinkle between his brow so that his beauty could shine through.
Gong Che said in a quiet voice. A touch of hurt that was difficult to catch was present in his voice.
Regardless of whether the person before him was Gong Yimo, she still refused to see him, or at least, refused to see him with her true face. Both of those possibilities caused his heart to throb in pain, and it felt a little hard to breathe.
Why…Even though he clearly missed her so much!
“It is no matter at all.”
Gong Yimo grinned and quickly began talking about business.
“I heard that Your Highness still has some questions to discuss with this lowly one. May I inquire what?”
Gong Che peered at her and sighed in his heart. Then, he spoke, “It is about logistics…May I ask if the men in your country are reliable for private inter-country trade?”
Gong Yimo’s heart jumped slightly and she smiled. “Naturally they are. To that matter, may I ask if Your Highness has any proposals?”
Gong Che suddenly looked at her and said, “I wish to leave the matter of trade between our two countries to the responsibility of one person, so as to all the unnecessary trouble. Do you think this is feasible?”
Gong Yimo paused. Then, a little slowly, she began, “This is, after all, a matter of two countries. I am afraid it will not be easy to convince the people to agree to going with just a single fleet of trade ships. After all, would the person in charge be a person from Dayu or Yuheng?”
Gong Che responded simply, “My subordinates have nothing but praises for you, and I believe you must be well wise in this matter. So, pray tell, what do you think is the best way for us to go about this matter?”
Did he just toss the problem back to her?
