"There is no one alive in your family", they said...

Gongsun Li didn't agree...

"You are alone in this world now" they told her.

She didn't dare believe.....

She treated the fire incident that mercilessly took her family away from her as a nightmare and behaved as if it never happened...

So,she waited, waited for her mother to come and hug her, waited for her father's affectionate smile. Days passed but nobody returned. Still she waited, even when she was taken to that ugly orphanage she didn't stop waiting, expecting, craving for her family..

Still her family never came. For they were helplessly buried under ground, for they couldn't pass the inevitable barrier named 'death'...

One day, when tears weren't enough to express her turmoil, something snapped in her as she stopped waiting, stopped craving for love and that day she stopped loving too....

She built a wall around her, training her heart not to feel, not to love, not to break because she was too scared to feel the pain of losing, too afraid to become lonely again...

From that day everyone came to know a new version of her as she revealed herself to them. From then Nobody bothered to evoke any emotional attachment from her for they knew it wasn't possible. The girl named Gongsun Li forgot how to love.
............................

Gongsun Li rubbed her eyes to clear her blurry vision while she was sitting on bed after a nice sleep. She was actually having a visual hallucination!!!!

According to what her eyes see, there was the mighty emperor sitting on the sofa in all his glory...

So ridiculous!!! How could he be here? He was busy with the war preparations and even if he was here, then how the hell she was in all her pieces though she dared to sleep in his bed??

No,no.... this can't be true!!!!

She couldn't wrap her head around the sudden happenings and blurted out the next words,

"Why are you here?"

Zhu Zhen was going through some papers when he heard her question. Lifting his head to her direction, he raised an eyebrow slowly as if warning her to change the question.

G.Li felt her heart skip a bit realizing the impending danger. So the next moment, she shot up from the bed and knelt down before the emperor,

"Your highness, please forgive this lowly servant's rubbish tongue. What this maid actually wanted to ask was why weren't you in palace last few days?" she asked stretching her lips to form the sweetest smile that would even make the ants gag..

"Was busy" the emperor replied shifting his gaze to the paper...

I am really grateful for your descriptive information, sigh'

To ensure her head's permanent attachment to her neck, she decided to add a few more words...

"This servant was really worried for your highness. I really couldn't sleep well all these nights thinking if something bad happened to his highness"

Have you ever felt like gagging on your own lies?

I have.

Gods in heaven: Prepare a 1000 volt thunder lightening to strike the most shameless liar!!!!

Goblins: Gongsun Li,you are in danger!!!!

Zhu Zhen shot his head up to look at his little wife's face. Amusement flickered in his eyes listening to her shameless lies..

"But you seemed to have a nice sleep last night", he muttered eying her leasurely.

Last night?? That means last night he was here...O.M.G!!!!!then...

"Where did you sleep last night?", G.Li couldn't stop the words rolling off her tongue in her panicked state...

Something flickered in the emperor's eyes as if he was remembering something...

"On bed", he replied.His eyes moving everywhere avoiding his wife. He wanted to sound normal but the tips of his ears turned red betraying his real emotions..

Did I really hear what I just heard?!!!

G.Li's eyes widened as the meaning of his words dawned upon her...

Give me poison. I want to die!!!
