Chapter 358: She Escaped (1)
As she finished, Gong Yimo took a step back and paid her respects. “It’s getting late and this person should head off. Your highness, you don’t need to see me out.”
Gong Che stared deeply at her, unable to say anything for a while. He was almost certain that the person in front of him was Gong Yimo. Why wouldn’t she admit to this? Why does she still want to leave him?
He wanted her so badly and he was about to explode from suppressing this feeling! He really wanted to hold her in his arms and never let her go!
Before he could say anything, he heard horses stomping over and a fleet rushing here. Gong Che instantly recognized who it was, based on the heavy black color and the iconic six red-dates colored precious horses.
Gong Jue! It’s actually Gong Jue!
Gong Yimo naturally saw Gong Jue’s horse carriage and she was immediately frightened. She didn’t know why but she wasn’t afraid of anyone, but the scene where Gong Jue slit his wrist and let his blood out did.
But she still pretended to act confident in front of Gong Che, smiling.
“It seems like your highness has a friend visiting you. As this is the case, you don’t need to see me off. Good bye!”
Although Gong Che really wanted to test her true status, he had no time to deal with this matter since Gong Jue came all of a sudden now!
He definitely didn’t want Gong Jue to see Gong Yimo, gesturing behind him as a result. Someone immediately appeared in front of Gong Yimo, kneeling on one knee.
As the sound of the horses approached closer and closer, despite how much Gong Che wanted to talk to her, he had no choice but to bear with this regret!
It’s ok. He’d let his secret guards take her on a stroll around the city. Nothing will happen. He just need to endure this for now!
It felt like he was clenching his teeth as he said this.
“Ying Feng, escort Mr. out from the side door.”
Ying Feng looked up at Gong Che and said, “Yes!”
Gong Yimo raised her head and smiled at Gong Che.
“See you next time.”
Once she finished, she followed Ying Feng out and towards the city wall. At this time, Gong Jue’s horse carriage arrived there too.
Because Gong Che had dismissed everyone, there was no one here to open the door for Gong Jue. Who knew that their first time seeing each other after a year was under this tense atmosphere.
Luo Qi whispered something towards the horse carriage’s window and moments later, the curtains were moved to the side. Gong Jue walked out and he raised his head to see Gong Che by the city wall alone, smiling.
“Royal brother, why did you shut the city door, refusing to let this royal brother into the capital?”
Gong Che heard this and waved his hands, sending someone to call for the soldiers guarding the city. He looked down at Gong Jue’s hateful face and felt unwilling to accept this situation.
Why did he have to come? Just a bit. Just a bit and he would’ve been able to know if that person was Mo’er!
Therefore, he really couldn’t force a smile. He said in an extremely rude tone, “Royal brother, please wait momentarily!”
Sensing his attitude, Gong Jue slightly squinted his eyes.
Luo Qi said that he saw a person chatting with the Crown Prince from afar and once he arrived, the person had left. It was a very normal matter, but he felt like something was off about this.
Who was that person? Did Yu Heng send them over? Could it be royal sister?
When he thought of this, he held a fervent attitude, raising his head to say to Gong Che, “Royal brother, may I ask who the other person on the city wall with you was? Why did they leave suddenly?”
Gong Che’s heart skipped a beat and he responded in a gloomy tone, “Just a friend. You don’t know them.”
“Could it be Yu Heng’s friend?” Gong Jue sneered.
“Presumptuous!” Gong Che was infuriated. “Are you saying that I am colluding with outsiders?”
Gong Jue asked, “Is that not the case?”
