Hearing that, Yun Shang felt relieved. She had been thinking about how to suggest that the Emperor ask Lady Jin to move into Qinzheng Hall. To her, it seemed to be the only way to keep Lady Jin from the Empress. Though the Empress was capable of many horrendous things, she wouldn't be able to cause trouble in Qinzheng Hall. But if she said that to the Emperor, Lady Jin would surely become a target.

However, Lady Jin had thought about moving into Qiwu Palace and letting the Empress take care of her. Even though the Empress would want to get rid of the baby, she wouldn't be able to do so while Lady Jin remained her guest. If anything happened to the unborn baby, the Empress would be the first suspect. As a result, the Empress would not only have to care for the baby; she would also need to take responsibility for any untoward events.

"Well, the Empress?" Emperor Ning pressed his lips together as he thought.

Lady Jin smiled, "Before I entered the Imperial Household, the Empress and I were good friends. That's why I felt relieved when she was tasked with caring for Yun Shang. Don't worry, Your Majesty. The Empress is a kind woman and she will surely keep me and my baby safe."

After staring at Lady Jin for a long time, Emperor Ning finally nodded, "In that case, I'll let Master Zheng call the Empress for us. I need to tell her this in person."

Lady Jin nodded, "Your Majesty's kindness and care will always be remembered by me." Then she loooked at Yun Shang, "Aren't you going to Princess Hua Jing's Palace? It's getting late now. Go back to Qingxin Palace and pack your belongings. You are not in good health. You need time to rest."

Yun Shang knew that Lady Jin didn't want the Empress to see her at Qinzheng Hall. So she nodded. "I will take my leave now."

Emperor Ning was focused on Lady Jin. He couldn't think of anything else at that moment. He nodded.

Lady Jin and Emperor Ning talked more. Emperor Ning kept asking Lady Jin how she felt, and she smiled and answered every question he asked. After a while, the Empress arrived. Lady Jin quickly stood up and bowed to the Empress. Before the Empress said anything, Emperor Ning put his arms around Lady Jin and said, "Look at you. You don't know how to take care of your body. From now on, I will not allow you to bow before anyone."

The Empress clenched her hands so tightly in her sleeves that her nails left indents in her palms. Her face, however, remained passive. She smiled at them. "Lady Jin, I didn't know you were here too. Your Majesty, what is it that you call me for?"

Emperor Ning took a seat and held Lady Jin's hand in his. He didn't look at the Empress while speaking. "Shu Jin is pregnant. The place she lives now is damp, and since winter is coming, living there is not good for her nor the baby."

The Empress quickly glanced at Lady Jin. She hid her murderous look quickly. "Well, then congratulations to Your Majesty and Jin. Since Lady Jin is pregnant, she cannot live in the Cold Palace anymore. Now that we don't have many ladies, we have many empty Palaces. Jin can choose her favorite, and I'll send someone to clean it up for her and add more furniture."

Emperor Ning frowned, "Shu Jin only has Madam Zheng to serve her now, and with her pregnancy, she will surely need more than one maid to serve her..."

The Empress nodded, "I'll go to the Imperial Household Department and let them select some capable maids and eunuchs for Lady Jin."

Emperor Ning shook his head. "New servants are not well-trained. Since Shu Jin is already pregnant, she shouldn't be spending time teaching the servants. What I'm saying is that you let Shu Jin live in one of the Palaces in Qiwu Palace. Qiwu Palace is warm in winter and cool in summer. It's the perfect place for her to stay. Besides, you have many capable servants. Find a few effective ones to serve Shu Jin. Since Yun Shang's birth, no other concubine has b

een pregnant with my child. Now that Shu Jin is pregnant, you as the head of all concubines should take good care of her and keep my child safe. I'll let Shu Jin live in your Palace. If anything happens, I'll hold you responsible."

The Empress was so mad that she could have chewed silver to pieces. Even though her heart was full of anger, she smiled calmly. "Don't worry, Your Majesty. I will surely take good care of Lady Jin and ensure that she gives birth to your child safely."

Hearing this, Lady Jin smiled. Just when she stood up, Emperor Ning stopped her. Lady Jin turned to look at Emperor Ning and noticed his warning. She knew that he didn't want her to bow. A faint smile appeared on her mouth. She smiled at the Empress, "Thank you for your trouble, Your Majesty."

The news of Lady Jin's pregnancy was like a stone tossed into a quiet lake. It made thousands of ripples in the time it took to have a cup of tea. The news of Lady Jin being permitted to live in Qiwu Palace to have her baby, made this news a whole lot more intriguing.

It was after 9 pm, but the lights in every Palace were still on. Looking toward the direction of the Qiwu Palace, Yun Shang smiled and complimented, "No wonder grandpa said that mother was a very clever woman. Few people can match her intelligence."

Qin Yi also smiled happily. "That's for sure. All these women in the Palace are a mob. None of them can match Lady Jin. Till now, she didn't compete with them. Once she sets her mind on something, nothing can stand in her way."

Yun Shang heard this and immediately became curious. She turned and looked at Qin Yi and said, "By the way, Qin Yi, how long have you obeyed her?"

Qin Yi held out her fingers and counted to seven before saying with pride, "I was found by the master when I was five years old. But the master said that there were too many people around her, and she had to have someone she could trust. So she left me somewhere else to wait until the master and Your Highness entered the Palace. Only then did I enter the Palace secretly."

Hearing this, Yun Shang looked at Qin Yi with a smile and said, "Tell me about my mother and Father."

Qin Yi licked her lips. "I don't know everything quite well. But if you really want to know, then I'll tell you what I do know. The master and the Emperor had been friends since their childhood. Lady Jin's father was the Emperor's Grand Tutor, so they were very close at that time. The Emperor promised very early to marry her and let her be his wife, and then the Empress. Later, however, the Grand Councilor Li gained power, so the Emperor's father asked him to marry Li's daughter and let her be the Empress after he ascended the throne. He hinted that if the Emperor did not comply, he would make Prince Jing the Emperor. Since Prince Jing is only an adopted son, the Emperor couldn't allow that to happen. So after many struggles, he finally compromised and married the Empress."

Qin Yi sighed, "The master was reluctant to leave the Emperor after all these years of love. So she ignored the Grand Tutor's advice and came to the Palace to be the Lady Jin. The Emperor promised to love her only, but soon, the Empress became pregnant. The master was furious. She fought with the Emperor, and finally forgave him. A few years later, the number of concubines in the Palace grew. When the master was giving birth to Your Highness, the Emperor was drunk in another concubine's Palace and didn't even go to visit her. The master was completely disappointed with him and offered to move to the Cold Palace. When the Emperor threatened her with Your Highness, the master felt more disappointed. That's why she entrusted the Empress to take care of you..."

"No wonder..." Yun Shang thought of what happened in her previous life and sighed, "Turns out mother and I are both victims of fate..." But in this life, she wanted her mother to get her own happiness...
