Chapter 355: Seeing but Still Missing (2)
Gong Yimo smiled. “For the people in charge of this matter as well as the fleet, we may choose one half from each country to form a single fleet. Only, for the person in charge…”
Gong Che suddenly looked at her expectantly.
“What is it about the person in charge?”
Gong Yimo blinked her eyes. Then, she smiled, “Since His Highness has made the proposal, may this one take up the responsibility of the person in charge?”
Gong Che’s eyes flickered. “You are a close relative of His Second Highness of Yuheng, and not my own confidant. How can I trust you?”
Gong Yimo smiled.
“Please listen, your highness.”
She poured a cup of tea for Gong Che.
“In terms of interests, Dayu has both the land and the resources. There is much to be gained in this transaction for Yuheng, so we will not dare to do anything that may destroy our treaty.”
Gong Che only sipped on his tea and did not speak.
“Secondly, though this one is highly valued by the second prince, this one has journeyed north and south for many years and naturally considers himself a fair and peaceful person. I believe my vision is broad enough that I may never do anything like killing a chicken to retrieve its eggs.”
Then, she suddenly looked up with a smile and said to Gong Che with a cunning glance, “Of course, the most important thing is that someone has told me that they can improve ships and expand a fleet. She has also told me that if necessary, she has passed me this item that I may show to His Highness.”
Then Gong Yimo took something out from her sleeve.
Gong Che looked at it. It actually turned out to be a dagger studded full of gems!
He grabbed the dagger in an instant, and his expression showed excitement!
This dagger…This is the gift he had wanted to give to Gong Jue when he left for Xizhou. However, while he and Mo’er were on the boat in the lake, when…all those things happened, he left in a hurry and left behind the box containing the bagger on the boat. He never expected it to appear here.
So to say…This was Mo’er’s intention?
He observed the smiling man in front of him who appeared mature and steady. What was he to Mo’er? Was he her subordinate?
Gripping the dagger, Gong Che spoke with a faint eagerness in his voice. “You said that you wish to take up the position of man in charge, and that is no issue to me, but where is the owner of this dagger? I wish to see her!”
Gong Yimo smiled. “I am sorry to disappoint you, but she is not in Dayu.”
As expected, Gong Che revealed a look of disappointment. After a long groan, he suddenly asked, “Is there anything else she wishes to say besides this?”
When he saw the earnestness in his eyes, Gong Yimo suddenly felt quite uneasy. She sighed. “She says…that if you meet again, she wishes to know whether you are still willing to remain her sibling.”
She should not have said this, but when she saw his face pale, she felt even more uncomfortable.
“Siblings?” Gong Che looked at her, then at the dagger. After a long time, he chuckled bitterly.
“I agree to you being in charge, but I hope you will also pass on a word in my stead.”
Gong Yimo raised her hand as a gesture for him to continue and still revealed no flaws.
Gong Che was looking at her, but he also seemed like he was looking at someone else through her.
In the end, he sighed helplessly and said, “Please tell her we may share whatever relationship she pleases, I only hope that she returns.”
Gong Yimo was stunned again. She couldn’t say what she was feeling in her heart. After a while, she came back to her senses and responded solemnly, “I will definitely pass on your word.”
After saying this, Gong Yimo tried again to shift the subject to something else.
During this period, Gong Che kept on looking at her with a deep gaze with a sense of probing. This caused her to feel uneasy, and she got up to excuse herself in just a short while.
“Will you be leaving tonight?”
Before she left, Gong Che asked with his cup in hand.
Gong Yimo nodded. “This matter can not be delayed. I will go tonight.”
Gong Che did not say anything. He only stood up and said with a smile, “In that case, let me see you off. Please.”
