"Summon the Princess Hui Guo to the hall..." Hearing the sharp voice ordering her presence at Jinluan Hall, Yun Shang arranged her attire and walked in with Qin Yi's support.

"I greet the Imperial Father." Yun Shang laboriously kowtowed to Emperor Ning thrice before rising with a slight cough.

It had been seven years since the Emperor Ning had last seen Yun Shang. Though being filled with emotion, Emperor Ning sighed and declared, "Princess Hui Guo has blessed our country for seven years. Thanks to her, the weather has been favorable all this while. So I'll bestow her Jinling City as her fief."

Jinling was a good city. Yun Shang smiled faintly and bowed again. The effort seemed to fill her forehead with sweat.

"Please rise."

Yun Shang slowly rose and smiled faintly at Emperor Ning. Looking paler, she swayed and suddenly fell down on the ground.

"Her Highness fainted..." Qin Yi stood up in a hurry and took a step to help Yun Shang.

"Hurry up, send for Imperial Physicians." Emperor Ning's voice sounded painful. Giving the order in haste, he leapt from the dragon throne. Worried, he lifted Yun Shang and carried her in to the inner sanctuary.

At Qiwu Palace, Empress Yuan Zhen were talking with Hua Jing on the couch. "The weather is favorable this year. The osmanthus cake tastes sweeter than that of last year's. You have become more filial."

Hua Jing smiled faintly and looked gentle, "Mother, I'm glad you enjoy it. I'll send some to my father later. And I hear that Yun Shang returns today. She ought to be visiting my father in Jinluan Hall. I'll also send some cakes to her later. I haven't seen her in so many years, I really wonder how she's doing."

Empress Yuan Zhen smiled "I have some spies in Ning'guo temple. It is said that she has gotten worse. In a little while, it will be her Coming-of-age Ceremony. After that, she should get married. Though she's your half sister, you should see whether there's someone suitable among the government officials and pick one for her."

Hua Jing nodded in agree

for Shang'er to suffer so much before she comes of age. You, Imperial Physician, should try your best and use the best medicines to nurse Her Highness's health."

When they were speaking, an eunuch approached Emperor Ning. After listening to what he had to say, The Emperor said, "I shall leave to solve some affairs. I leave Shang'er to your care, my Empress."

All bowed to The Emperor in a hurry.

After Emperor Ning left, Yun Shang smiled and said, "I wonder whether my Qinxin Hall has been cleaned. I'd better leave for there."

The Empress smiled and said, "The servants clean it everyday. I have informed them to be present so they can care for you. Qinxin Hall is peaceful enough to recuperate in. I haven't replaced the servants with whom you are familiar."

Yun Shang nodded. Just as she was going to reply, a few servants entered. "Bow in respect before Your Majesty, Princess Xi Ning, and Princess Hui Guo."

Empress Yuan Zhen said with a smile, "Here she comes. Shang'er, do you remember this maid? Lift your head! Let Her Highness have a look..."

Yun Shang turned around. The lead maid raised her head with teary eyes and opened her mouth. After a long moment, she said, "Your Highness..."

Yun Shang looked at the maid and soon recognized her to be Qin Meng. Yun Shang smiled faintly and said, "It's you, Qin Meng. You have grown up..."
