Chapter 368: Found Her (1)
No matter how quick he was, it was already too late. There were just poor people fighting for money in the worn-down temple. There was no way Gong Yimo would still be there!
Gong Jue’s sudden appearance made the temple silent once again. People’s hair and clothes were disheveled and messed up, but there were some who clutched their banknotes tightly while others who were dejected because they didn’t get any.
But when they saw Gong Jue, their emotions all changed to fear. Who cared about the money? After all, it was all his!
Gong Jue remained silent, but stared at them coldly. Yet, they didn’t dare to move at all, allowing Gong Jue’s sharp gaze to sweep past each one of them.
Gong Jue had an incredible memory! He was actually matching each person present with the picture in his memory, trying to see who was missing.
Although there was no more light in the temple, the moonlight was bright. He actually found a missing face.
His brain automatically enlarged the person’s face…
That was a dirty face with a pair of muddy but restless eyes. They were clearly a beggar! But their face was similar to the Royal Sister! Why hadn’t he realized this earlier? If he didn’t compare each one of the faces present, he would never have remembered that person. It was as if that person never appeared in his memory. This had never happened before!
How did Royal Sister do that?!
Gong Jue was even more and more restless. After confirming who it was, he rushed out again. At this time, Luo Qi and the others had caught up, asking, “Your majesty, do you have any orders?”
“Quickly tell the Crown Prince that the Royal Sister had disguised into a young man in his 20s. In addition, he won’t be able to find out who it was with a simple check. Tell him that he needs to search their bodies!”
Luo Qi received the order and hurried off.
Gong Jue slightly knitted his eyebrows. He had no choice, but to join forces with Gong Che!
Now, he just hoped that with Royal Sister’s lazy personality, she won’t disguise once again in a short period of time under the precondition that they hadn’t recognized her!
But he was going to be disappointed again…
When Gong Yimo came out of the worn-down temple, she walked calmly and wiped off the marks on her face.
Right now, she had a clear motive. Since she couldn’t go by surface transport, she could only travel by the waterways. It just happened that her body was covered in filth, so she should clean herself first.
At the same time, Gong Jue had thought of this too!
Not far from the Chenghuang temple was the Wan City’s moat. If there were guards on the mainland, Royal Sister would most likely go by the waterways. This was because the entire waterways map of Dayu was in her mind. She definitely won’t let that advantage go!
There was a moon and bright stars in the sky.
Gong Yimo tossed the dirty clothes away, but didn’t place it in her storage. After that, she walked step by step into the water.
Although it was summer, the water was still chilly in the evening, making her snow-white feet tremble. Then, she harshly stepped into the water.
She clenched her teeth and ended up jumping into the water.
The water of Wan City was the Yellow River’s tributary bypass, so the water was at least clear. If she continued to follow the stream, she would be able to head out of the city through both ends.
But she wasn’t anxious. Instead, she relaxed and allowed herself to be submerged in water. After getting used to the water temperature, she felt herself transforming to a fish and felt like she could breathe underwater.
She was too anxious before, so she was only able to reserve her essence qi, but not stabilize her realm. Now that she was in the water, she could naturally calm down. Therefore, she had completed half the work for her plan already.
But not long later, she was still unable to enter a meditative state when she heard footsteps from afar. Gong Yimo opened her eyes and went underwater, concentrating her attention on holding in her breath. She then quietly glanced at the surface of the water.
Gong Jue rushed over and noticed the clothes Gong Yimo had tossed to the side right away.
