Within the Royal Ancestral Temple, the ritual official was speaking about showing gratitude to the heaven and the earth. All the royal heirs and officials had fallen to their knees. They were perspiring because of the scorching heat and kneeling on the hard flagstone gave them great pain. Even so, no one dared move. Several concubines would have fallen, if not for their maids supporting them.

Everything was solemn and peaceful while a revolt was poised to begin outside the temple walls.

"Thanks to the grace of our royal ancestors, the Can Kingdom remains prosperous and peaceful." When the official finally finished his oration, everyone was relieved.

The Emperor, Huo Yang, rose first. He received joss sticks from a footman beside him, bowed deferentially three times and put the joss sticks into the censer in front of him. Then Huo Yang turned around.

He raised his hands and said, "All rise."

The Crown Prince got up first, then the officials and concubines stood up one after another.

"We royalty hold this worship ceremony today to bless the Can Kingdom. Our kingdom has had a history of hundred years. I throw my heart and soul into the affairs of the Can Kingdom to safeguard the welfare of the people……"

But while Huo Yang was talking, one of the officials finally couldn't resist interrupting him.

The Grand Preceptor, Wu Ci, stepped out of the ranks of officials and said, "Your Majesty, I have something to say."

The quiet of the Royal Ancestral Temple turned noisy at

ased with himself, when the officials behind him began to flatter him, "The Grand Preceptor has considered the best interests of our country and people, not himself. He is setting a good example of quality leadership."

"Grand Preceptor is a talented and witty governor, quite capable at state affairs."

"Grand Preceptor cultivated his son properly. He is the future hope of all the Can Kingdom."

"……"

Huo Liuyun snickered, "Wu Ci, you'd better be fully prepared. I am warning you now, for if you fail to usurp the throne, your entire family will be executed."

Wu Ci laughed: "Ha ha, don't worry about me, my prince. I don't take risks unless I am one hundred sure of the outcome."

Huo Liuyun squinted, "Fine, if you need to be convinced that you will fail. Guards, take him down!"

The palace guards moved in, their cold swords ready, but their swords were blocked by a faster sword.

Huo Liuyun was dumbfounded to see who was holding the sword, "Xue Ying, you are in on this revolt?"
