Yun Shang frowned as she did not know what was going on. She saw Ning Ye dodge the blow. Yun Shang was shocked by his reaction. She had once read through the information kept on royal members and learned that Ning Ye had been sickly from an early age and that he was randy yet weak now. Wang Jinhuan, however, was highly skilled in martial arts. Even if he punched Ning Ye without using martial arts, his movement would be much faster than an ordinary person, and Ning Ye shouldn't be able to dodge...

Was Ning Ye somehow skilled in martial arts too? But why did he conceal the fact?

Ning Ye also seemed to have realized his mistake. He stopped moving and took Jinhuan's next punch to his body.

Yun Shang saw the expression on Prince Jing's face change, and knew that he must have asked Jinhuan to fly Ning Ye's kite. Was Prince Jing investigating Ning Ye?

Yun Shang tipped Ning Qian with a wink. Ning Qian took the hint and turned to the two men fighting with each other and said indifferently, "Your Royal Highness, Mr. Wang, since you are good friends, please continue. I think I'd better leave now."

They immediately stopped fighting and yelled in one voice, "Qian Qian, please don't go."

Ning Qian did not respond, instead, she turned and walked toward the boat. Ning Ye immediately followed, but Jinhuan stayed where he was. He ground his teeth and mumbled, "Ning Ye, you are such a bastard! I don't believe Qian Qian would choose you. Let's wait and see!"

The thunder of horse hooves came from behind them. Shortly after, a man's voice could be heard, "Prince Jing, the Defense Minister has something important to report. He has been waiting for you for about an hour at the mansion."

Prince Jing nodded but hesitated before he turned to Yun Shang, "I'm so sorry. I invited you for an outing, but I need to leave now. Let me send you back to the Imperial Palace first."

Yun Shang agreed. She turned around and walked down the hill with Prince Jing. Together, they got into the carriage.

They didn't speak with each other during the journey.

After Yun Shang returned to her Palace, she asked Qian Yin, "Has Liu Qingya come into the Imperial Palace? She's the girl who was selected to be my father's newest concubine on New Year's Eve."

Qian Yin shook her head. After the New Year's Eve banquet, Lady Jin had nearly suffered a miscarriage, and the Empress had been grounded. It was the Empress who had selected Liu Qingya as a concubine for Emperor Ning. Now, the Empress was busy enough with her affairs, and no one remembered Lady Qingya.

Yun Shang thought about it for a while and said, "Ask Qin Meng to mention Qingya tomorrow when she visits Lady Ming."

Qian Yin nodded. Yun Shang continued, "Help me change. I'

er, the Empress made a lady your concubine on New Year's Eve. The lady performed such a wonderful sword-dance. Father, please bring her into the Imperial Palace. I want to learn sword-dance."

Lady Ming was left speechless by Yun Shang's request. She ground her teeth and spoke after a while, "Selecting beauties is a sheer waste of energy and money, and it's not a good thing to have too many ladies in the Imperial Palace. Since the lady was honored as a concubine, I'll arrange someone to collect her, so that she can teach Yun Shang the sword-dance..."

Yun Shang nodded. A huge smile lit up her face, "Great! Then I can learn the sword-dance and perform it in front of you, Lady Ming. Father, sister Hua Jing has been grounded for a long time. I know she made a mistake, but she must have reflected on her actions while in jail. I heard jail is very frightening. There are mice and cockroaches. She is a weak lady and must feel scared. Father, please release her from prison."

Emperor Ning and Lady Ming were astounded by Yun Shang's plea. Lady Ming stared at Yun Shang for a long time, trying to figure out what she was thinking. But Yun Shang kept a calm face. Lady Ming thought it over in her mind before speaking, "Hua Jing is a Princess. No matter what mistake she made, as long as she knows she was wrong, we should release her. Moreover, I thought that case was weird and Hua Jing wouldn't do that. Your Majesty, please issue a decree ordering the official release of Hua Jing."

Emperor Ning remained speechless for a while and said, "I need to think it over."

Lady Ming was unsatisfied with this result and seemed to pout. Yun Shang finished the white fungus soup in a happy mood. Emperor Ning stood and was about to leave. Yun Shang also got up and said goodbye to Lady Ming. They left Changchun Palace together.
