The Tales of a Blessed Daughter - Chapter 220
She could see that An Yi and Jin Tong had feelings for each other. Why would two people who were in love separate?
Gu Ruoyun could not dissuade Su Yan and could only let go.
Su Yan’s appearance made Jin Tong quickly gather her emotions and say, “I knew you would come.”
Su Yan asked, “Why do you want to marry? An Yi likes you.”
Jin Tong looked at Su Yan and suddenly smiled, “I really envy you. You can, but I can’t.”
Su Yan did not understand. Jin Tong suddenly said, “Su Yan, I suddenly hate you. You let me know that there is such love in the world, but I can’t get it. I have a country to protect, but you have Guang Pingwang.”
Su Yan was stunned and did not know how to respond.

Jin Tong had already given the order to leave and said, “Since you’re all here, I’ll treat all of you to a celebratory drink.”
She opened the door and looked at An Yi outside as she spoke. Her expression did not change, and she immediately said, “I’d like to invite the three of you to the banquet hall.”
Gu Ruoyun suddenly appeared and pulled Su Yan towards the front hall. An Yi followed closely behind.
After they had arrived, Jin Tong was escorted to the banquet hall and ascended to the throne amidst the crowd’s cheers. On the other side, Cao Jiangcheng came to her side with an ostentatious smile and whispered something. Jin Tong’s expression did not change, but she did not object to his hand wrapped around her waist.
Su Yan and the other two watched as they bowed.
She quietly looked at An Yi by the side. An Yi’s expression did not change, but the wine in his hand had not stopped since the moment Jin Tong appeared.
After the ceremony, Jin Tong sat in the soft palanquin and headed to the living quarter. Cao Jiangcheng continued to receive everyone’s blessings during the banquet.
Jin Tong sat on the palanquin expressionlessly. The eunuch in front suddenly said, “Your Highness, there’s someone blocking the way.”
An Yi slowly approached her, his body reeking of alcohol.
He said, “Jin Tong, let me take you away, okay?”
Jin Tong smiled and said, “You’re drunk.”
An Yi stubbornly stood outside her palanquin.
Jin Tong looked deeply at his face and said with a smile, “An Yi, if you had told me this before, I would have gone crazy with joy. But now it’s too late.”
An Yi frowned and said, “It’s not too late.”
Jin Tong wiped away the tears on her face and said, “You gave me the courage to abandon everything just to be with you. But you also broke my courage with your own hands and let me know that there are some things in this world that I can’t get.”
An Yi’s eyes revealed a trace of begging as he said, “I’m sorry. Can you give me another chance?”
Jin Tong replied coldly, “I’m sorry, I’m the Emperor of the Southern Kingdom. I can’t do anything that goes beyond my status.”
An Yi was startled. These words were very familiar. They were words that he had said before. He no longer had the face of lingering and slowly released the hand holding the palanquin.
As the palanquin slowly disappeared, An Yi felt a chill on his face. He reached out to touch it and realized that he had actually cried just now.
Su Yan and Gu Ruoyun watched this scene from the shadows. They had no choice. When it comes to love, one mistake triggers the next.
That night, An Yi did not return, and no one knew where he had gone.
Only on the second day, An Yi returns to Gu Ruoyun’s side. His expression was the same as if he had forgotten about all this.
Gu Ruoyun brought up the matter of returning to the imperial kingdom immediately. An Yi did not say anything either.
The three of them set off again and returned to the Imperial Kingdom. However, their journey was a little dull.
Upon arrival at the Imperial Kingdom, they saw that the commoners on the streets had gathered at the city gates to welcome Gu Ruoyun. However, they were not there to greet her. Su Yan asked around curiously and found out that today was when Nalan Cui would personally send a teacher back to the imperial kingdom.
Su Yan told Gu Ruoyun about this, and her tone was filled with pride as she said, “I never thought that that kid, Nalan Cui, would have such a demeanor.”
Gu Ruoyun only smiled and did not say anything else.
This incident had a significant impact on the imperial court. The imperial kingdom only had one god of war, Gu Ruoyun, which was why the entire imperial court was under his control. However, it was different now. Their new Emperor was also a genius in leading troops.
