Jianyu looks at her and carresses her cheeks, “I have let you down once a year ago when you were raped I was not there for you. But now, I am here for you so you would not make a decision of which you might regret later.” The way he put his words made her shut her eyes as tears rolls down her fair cheeks.
“Alright, I’ll elope with you. I’ve loved you all my life too Jianyu. Just that, I never had the courage to tell you about it.” He smiles hearing her confession. He strokes her pink lips with his finger as he leans closer to kiss her. The sound of guards walking back and forth could be heard. The next shift is in 10 minutes after 1.30am. They only got 10 minutes to escape the palace unseen.
ZhenZhen quickly packs up her things and puts on her old robes instead of the beautiful silk ones that were gifted by the Emperor for her. Slowly, they jumps out a window and both landed on the ground behind her suite and quickly hide themselves from the sight of the guards.
“Halt who goes there?” Says a guard as ZhenZhen hides behind a door and Jianyu comes out to let the guards see him. “Its only me, I just returned to the Palace an hour ago by horse.” Explains Jianyu. The guards majority of them knows whom he was, they smiled and gave him a respectable nod. His the High Guard first in command.
When the course is clear, both of them rushes straight to the stables. When the sound of the Gong could be heard loudly as a guard shouted aloud, “The Emperor’s Concubine is missing!” The sound of the alert gong awoken up the Emperor himself.
As ZhenZhen was caught at the stables hugging High Guard Jianyu. “Let go..let go of me…” she says as a guard ties both their hands to the back and shoves them to the Emperor at his Throne. He stands up and kicks Jianyu’s stomache roughly as ZhenZhen shouts his name. “Jianyu! Please don’t harm him!”
The Emperor looks at her and grabs hold onto her chin, as he slaps her hard. Her body falls to the floor in pain. “How dare you try to leave the Palace grounds! Do you know you are mine!” Shouts the Emperor selfishly, as ZhenZhen sits back up on the floor, her lips were bleeding from the hard slap. She spits to his feet. “I am not yours nor anyone except the great God of Buddha!”
Emperor Gong rips her robes and lays above her, “lets see if that God of yours could safe you from this.” He starts undoing his robes as the guards turns their bodies around the other way, and they were holding Jianyu and restraining him from moving by putting the sword’s blade under his chin. His going to witness ZhenZhen being rape!
The Emperor penetrated her roughly, as he chokes her throat. “Once you carry my seed. You would not be able to leave this Palace ever again!” He was laughing with pure insanity. As ZhenZhen feels breathless being choked and raped at the same time.
Jianyu managed to get himself free, he kills all the guards that tries to get in his way, all of them ended up dead on the throne room’s floor. Blood splattered everywhere. As he makes his way to the Emperor as he did, the Emperor had made a move first so fast, his blade was sliced through Jianyu’s chest. As he falls down to the ground dead within seconds. ZhenZhen was shouting loudly and whacking the Emperor’s chest. “You murderer! Let go of me.. let go..” he kept thrusting inside of her and spills his seed into her womb. Her eyes went wide as he pulls himself out of her and smirks at her smiling in victory. Looking at her in nudity.
She pulls out a dagger as she sees him turning around. The dagger was thrown at a fast speed, it went straight to the Emperor’s neck. He falls down on the floor immediately. ZhenZhen kills the Emperor gruesomely using the dagger as the guards watches her and did not know what to do. To stop her or to just let her be.
A yell came forth loudly. “Capture her! Sentence her to death! She has killed the Emperor! Guards seize her!” Shouts Empress Yin Li. As they were about to seize ZhenZhen whom was coated with the Emperor’s blood all over her nude body, she pulls out the sword from Jianyu’s chest and strikes it through her abdomen. She vomits and coughs out blood as she crawls towards Jianyu. She holds and grips his hand firmly. “We will shall meet again…in the afterlife.” She spoke softly as she takes her last breath and dies beside him.
