Poison Genius Consort 2: Emperor's Swallow Chapter 1 – Prologue (1)
“Rui’er, please, I beg that you take Yan’er away! I’ll be leaving Qin He and Yan’er in your care!”
“Go! Royal Father orders that all of you leave immediately!”
… … …
A cloud of dust swallowed the place whole as the young youth ran away, quickly attempting to escape the formidable enemies from behind.
The Emperor of the Great Qin Empire fought with the enemies not too far away.
A girl around the age of eight was hugged tightly by her Imperial Brother, one who was two years older than her.
He covered her eyes; she could not see anything.
Only the sounds of weapons clashing against one another could be heard.
The Imperial Brother carried her and ran southward at top speed, quickly handing her over to another person. “Gu Nanchen, take good care of my little sister!”
“Crown Prince, you can’t die!”
“I am the Crown Prince of the Great Qin Empire! I will never be a deserter! If there is trouble in my family, I will take it upon myself to do it; if there is trouble in my nation, I will take it upon myself to do it! Bring my sister out of here and go to the Ice Sea! Quickly!”
Looking at her surrounds, the little girl was dumbfounded. She was scared silly, watching helplessly on as her Imperial Brother waved his dagger and ran back to the battlefield with vigor determination.
The person carrying her rustled and began moving. He went south while her Imperial Brother went north. She sniffled her nose and laid on the person’s shoulder while watching her Imperial Brother’s back gradually disappear into the distance.
An extremely rapid sound of the wind broke through the entire battlefield.
A sharp arrow came from the east and pierced his body…
The little girl’s eyes widened, stunned for a moment before recovering from a hazy daze of stupor. She then shouted with all her might, “BRO—”
… … …
Gu Feiyan suddenly sat up from the bed breathing heavily.
Her face was tinged with paleness and her heart beat fast.
She reached out and caressed her cheek only to find tears came rolling down.
For ten years, she often dreamed of that little girl. Though the person who carried the little girl was different in each dream, they still ran for their lives. She did not know who that little girl was, nor does she know why she continues dreaming about her.
“Great Qin…? Ice Sea…? Royal Father… Imperial Brother…. Gu Nanchen…?” Gu Feiyan murmured, finding the words slipping from her mouth particularly familiar.
She tried to remember the past but each time she did so, a flood of pain came through… Everything in her dreams came flooding in like a tidal wave that filled her entire head full; it felt like she was going to drown in a sea of flood.
Gu Feiyan could not take it anymore.
She clutched her head and screamed.
“Who the hell are you?!”
“Who are they?!”
“And… who am I…?!”
… … …
Like every other time, Gu Feiyan could not remember anything and she’d faint from the pain; each dream… each memory… each lifetime of pain.
Fortunately, she never forgot her dreams and she remembered the names in her dream.
In the afternoon, Gu Feiyan woke up.
When she walked out of her living quarters, there was a vast field full of herbs.
The warm sunlight poured happily down onto the mountain range and filled the air with the sweet fragrance of the medicinal herbs.
The mountain forest was called the Ice Sea Spirit Realm. It was isolated from the world and flourished with magical and wondrous medicinal herbs.
Gu Feiyan had been studying medicine here since she was the age of eight while living with her master on the mountain peak.
She’d forgotten who she was and where she came from.
Then, a silhouette suddenly appeared in the medicinal field like a phantom.
As it approached from afar, it suddenly neared her.
The person who came was none other than her master.
