Chapter 94: Negiations (1)
As soon as she entered the room, Gong Yi Mo took a deep breath to savor the fresh scent of peppermint in the air. The beauty’s residence lacked a graceful atmosphere as one would expect; instead, it looked rather desolate, with some unfinished writings laid out on a table. Gong Yi observed the calligraphy of a scripture on the desk. Because the writer relied more on creativity rather than adhering to strict rules, her painted writings looked like a solemn work of art
Not knowing how much longer she would be waiting, Gong Yi Mo took up a brush and began to paint on a blank white sheet of paper. She began to draw out her ideas regarding the canal–what rivers she remembered could be excavated, and which ones to avoid. In her previous life, she had traveled to many places in this world. There was much bloodshed wherever she traveled, but she paid little attention to these things.
While Gong Yi Mo was lost in thought, the door creaked open, and a drunken woman stumbled in while touching her forehead. She sluggishly lifted her gaze and brightened to a smile once she saw her visitor.
“Young Master, this servant thought that you wouldn’t be coming.”
Just earlier, several teenagers along with Gong Yi Mo were herded out of the brothel, so she thought they would never have the chance to meet again.
Gong Yi Mo placed down her brush, folded the paper, then tucked it under her arms. She smiled widely and replied, “I have an appointment with a beauty; how can I not come?”
Jing Yun hummed in surprised, then responded with an enchanting voice that was pleasing to the ear.
“I would have mistaken you for a man, Chaoyang Princess. I didn’t expect you to be such a funny person.”
Gong Yi Mo showed no surprise upon being identified. She slowly walked up to Jing Yun observed her.
“If your organization was more detailed, you should have known that I’m not a princess anymore.”
Jing Yun smiled and said, “Does that make any difference? Since you hold the medallion of ‘In the Emperor’s Presence,’ who would dare to make trouble with you?”
She even knows about this?
Gong Yi Mo touched her chin thoughtfully. “In that case, did you try to approach me because of this medallion?”
“That was originally my purpose.”
Jing Yun’s unexpectedly straightforward and simple answer surprised Gong Yi Mo.
“Then…what made you change your mind?”
Gong Yi Mo asked with wide, curious eyes.
Jing Yun smiled and lifted her jade white finger towards her visitor. “Of course it’s because of you…my little princess.”
Jing Yun ambled towards Gong Yi Mo’s side. The beauty stretched lightly and yawned, as her alluring figure laid comfortably next to the princess.
“Speaking of which…I have heard of the princess’ name often in the past two years; your reputation is more famous than my title as the number one beauty of the kingdom.”
“Is that so?” Gong Yi Mo touched her nose and replied, “I never thought that my reputation could reach such heights.”
Jing Yun glared at her and replied, “The princess is too modest.”
“Get down to business, who are you, and what dealings do you have with me?”
Gong Yi Mo looked at her with curiosity and a look of innocence.
Her expression caused the Young Jing Yun to laugh. She was obviously a clever princess, and yet she made such a cute face.
“My original plan was to borrow the gold medal in your hand, but after hearing the latest news from Great Tang, I suddenly came up with a brilliant idea.”
She smiled and gazed at Gong Yi Mo with a look of fascination. “Do you know of Yu Heng?”
The whole time, Gong Yi Mo was full of laughter and ease, but now her expression turned serious. “Of course I know.”
