Several public security officers dropped to their knees, trembled with fear, and replied successively to the Princess. Princess Hua Jing frowned and sighed, "I heard from my chambermaid that a scoundrel has kidnaped princess Hui Guo. You have to arrange more public security officers to search for the scoundrel, and you must search everywhere in the Imperial City, especially… brothels or somewhere like this."

The leader of the public security officers nodded hurriedly, "Yes, Your Highness. We will begin our search immediately."

Hua Jing nodded and waving her hands. "Go now!"

The leader rose to his feet and led the other public security officers out of the room. As they went downstairs, the leader said to the rest, "Act quickly. I need some of you to block all the arteries through which people go in and out of the Imperial City, and one of you needs to report this to the prefect and ask him to dispatch more staff to search for the Princess."

The chambermaid brought a cup of tea to Hua Jing and said gently, "Your Highness, everything is ready. During their search, the public security officers will find Princess Hui Guo in the biggest brothel - Goulan Brothel. By that time, Princess Hui Guo would have been raped. Then you will see…"

On hearing this, the tips of Hua Jing's mouth lifted in a grim smile. She said, "By then, all people in the Imperial City would know that Princess Hui Guo was found in a brothel and was defiled by a scoundrel. I really want to know who would marry an impure woman, even though she is a Princess."

At the very thought of the miserable life Yun Shang would live, Hua Jing felt delighted. Although impatient to hear the news, she waited for what seemed like an hour. Suddenly, footsteps could be heard outside the door. A smile appeared on Hua Jing's face. She quickly replaced it with a sad and despondent look.

The door opened, and a man in an official robe hastened to salute Princess Hua Jing. He sputtered, "Your Highness, I am Bai Feifan, prefect of the Imperial City. My subordinates and I searched around the Imperial City and found a maiden in Yixiang Brothel. She claimed to have been kidnapped from here."

"Yixiang Brothel?" What kind of place is it? How is my sister, Princess Hui Guo?" Hua Jing rose to her feet with a concerned air.

The prefect added hurriedly, "The maiden we found is not Princess Hui Guo…"

"What?" Hua Jing frowned and exclaimed, "Did you say that she is not Princess Hui Guo?" She thought for a moment and realized that she had overacted. She so

ls who are raised in the Imperial Palace. We are not in the same class as you."

Hearing this, Prince Jing smiled slightly and shook his head. "All right. You make a good point there. I have been out for a long time. I have to go back to my mansion now. If you feel sick, don't hesitate to come to my mansion to visit Doctor Xue Yan."

Yun Shang was shocked at Prince Jing's invitation. It was unbelievable that Prince Jing would show her due concern. She was so taken aback that it was not until a while later that she regained her senses. She nodded slowly and said, "I see, thank you, uncle."

Prince Jing nodded and then left the room followed by Wang Shunlai.

As their footsteps gradually faded, Hua Jing turned and looked at Yun Shang. She smiled, "Uncle is always indifferent to everyone, except for the Emperor. What I didn't know is that you have built a good relationship with him. He not only talked with you for such a long time but showed concern for you."

Yun Shang stuck her tongue out wittily and said, "I have seldom seen him. It was not until recently that my illness forced our father to ask Prince Jing to bring me to his Mansion to see a renowned doctor. In fact, I fear him just as much as you do. Today, I had meant to make a simple greeting and leave. I didn't expect him to share his battle stories with me, along with the customs and culture of the frontier."

"Really?" Hearing this, Hua Jing turned her eyes to the nearby wall and squinted as she contemplated over the day's events.

After a long pause, she turned and said to Yun Shang, "Well, it's late. It's time for us to return. We need to clean up our room." After this, she stepped out of the room.
