Although Prince Jing didn't take it to heart, Yun Shang thought that it must be a very tricky problem. She didn't fully know what Prince Jing was capable of, but she knew that the dreaded God of War must be worthy of his reputation.

However, Prince Jing had been trapped and badly hurt. If Cangjue Qingsu was behind this, he could never be overestimated. If not, finding the person responsible would be troublesome.

It was much easier to deal with a known strong enemy than an unknown one.

Prince Jing understood from Yun Shang's frown that she was worried about him. He held her hand and said gently, "Leave it to me. Since the other party is targeting me, I have to fight back. You have to be careful. I am afraid that you might be implicated. I will dispatch more people to protect you."

Yun Shang shook her head. "It's okay. I can protect myself in the Imperial City. You have to be careful."

While they were talking, someone knocked on the door. Yun Shang stood and opened the door. A young girl in black stood at the door. She looked at Yun Shang with worry. Yun Shang then realized that although Prince Jing was seriously injured and had been unconscious, it was inappropriate for her to stay with him all night. She apologetically said, "Qian Yin sent you here? Go back first. I will follow later."

The girl in black shook her head. "Your Highness, Lady Ming has ordered the arrest of Qian Yin and Qin Yi."

Shocked, Yun Shang put on a grave expression. "What happened?"

The girl in black frowned. "In my opinion, someone kept watch on you and leaked the news. Lady Ming and Lady Fu rushed to Qingxin Palace in the early morning. As they found that you were not in the inner Hall, they claimed that you had an accident and asked the guards to search the Palace. Seeing you nowhere, Lady Ming ordered the arrest of Qian Yin and Qin Yi and accused them of failing to protect you."

"Really?" Yun Shang sneered. "What did the guards at Qingxin Palace do? Why didn't they stop Lady Ming and her men?"

The girl in black was silent for a moment before she continued, "Lady Ming brought a martial arts master. The guards didn't dare to stop them, and our lurkers didn't dare to expose themselves without your order."

Yun Shang nodded.

"Lady Ming? Maybe Grand Councilor Li is also involved in this. If Grand Councilor Li didn't approve, Lady Ming and Li Fuyi wouldn't have dared to take action." Prince Jing said. Yun Shang was surprised. Although Prince Jing was injured, he was still a strong man. Without doubt, he had heard what they had said.

Yun Shang said emotionlessly, "I know. I have to go back. Take good care of yourself."

Yun Shang turned to leave but heard a noise from the room. She quickly walked into the room and saw that the medicine bowl on

ghness, you are wrong. I'm their master. Why should I tell them where I go? Moreover, I asked them not to follow me. So they had to stay in the Palace."

Lady Ming was speechless. She stared at Yun Shang with a smile. "You're right. But can you tell us where you went? I ordered a search of the Imperial City but couldn't find you. I thought you had an accident."

"Oh? The Imperial City was searched thoroughly? I was right in the imperial household, but I didn't know that you were searching for me. If I had, such a misunderstanding would not have happened." Yun Shang raised her eyebrows and looked strangely at Lady Ming as if accusing the older lady of lying.

Lady Ming smiled coldly. "Where were you last night?"

Yun Shang took a sheet of parchment from her sleeve and frowned. "Yesterday, I received a letter from my mother who resides in Laifeng Palace. She said in the letter that everything was fine, and the unborn baby's condition was stable. Moreover, she would give birth to the baby soon. She said that she missed me and asked if I could visit her Palace and give her company for some time..."

Emperor Ning interrupted Yun Shang happily, "Shu Jin wrote to you? What did she say in the letter? Let me see."

Yun Shang nodded and handed the parchment to Lord Zheng. Lord Zheng brought the letter to Emperor Ning. Emperor Ning glanced over it and said with a smile, "It's Shu Jin's handwriting. She said that Grand Tutor Xiao went to visit her, and she might be carrying a baby boy." Emperor Ning grinned in satisfaction. "Well, Shu Jin's belly should be huge by now. The summer will come soon. I will spend the summer in Laifeng Palace and wait for the birth of the baby boy."

Lady Ming frowned. Obviously, she was angry. She turned to look at Yun Shang. "You disappeared all night. What does it have to do with Lady Jin's letter?"
