Wenxi widened her round, bright eyes like a frightened rabbit, "Alas! I have bad luck today. I hope the punishment won't be hard."

Wenxi walked to the lot pot, drew a lot, and looked at it. As soon as she read the punishment, her expression changed. The other girls saw her expression, and became curious. They crowded around her and tried to read the lot. It read, "Who is your favorite man?"

The handwriting had an unconventional grace of its own. Wenxi felt embarrassed, but Jinyan laughed out loud and said, "I wrote this punishment. I was wondering who would get the lot. I didn't expect it would be you, Lady Jing. It's okay. We can keep secrets. Just tell us."

Wenxi stood where she was. Her face turned pale and her nose grew pink.

"Well, if Lady Jing is not willing to tell us, we can understand. After all, it's your secret. Lady Jing is not married yet, and it's not appropriate to tell us who her favorite man is." Jinyan frowned and rubbed her nose as she spoke indifferently.

Hardly had her words faded away, a sneer sounded, "It's indeed not appropriate for her to tell us, but it's not because she is not willing or because she is shy. That's because her favorite man is engaged, and his fiancee is right here."

Before the statement could be finished, Wenxi rushed toward the lady angrily, "Wen Ruyu, I have never offended you before. Why do you insult me?"

The atmosphere became tense. The ladies wondered who Wenxi's favorite man was. Many engaged ladies were present. Every lady would be upset if she knew that her fiance was admired by another girl.

Ruyu snorted as she raised her eyebrows, "What? You dare not to tell us? Look at yourself! You are really ugly. Prince Jing won't be fond of you!"

Prince Jing... Everyone noticed the most important information in Ruyu's words. It turned out that Wenxi's favorite man was Prince Jing.

Everyone glanced at Yun Shang, but Yun Shang didn't seem to care what Ruyu had said at all. Yun Shang looked calm and spoke in a nonchalant voice, "Ladies, it's Uncle Jing's birthday party today. Please don't share your person

sounded in the yard. Many unmarried ladies immediately covered their eyes and muttered, "What a shame!"

Some ladies, such as Yun Shang and Jinyan, frowned and looked at the lady on the ground. The lady had a sweet smile on her face as if she was still steeped in pleasure. A moment later, she furrowed her brows because of the sudden pain. She raised herself on her elbows and gazed at the people in confusion.

"Oh my god. She is Lady Cangyang, the sworn daughter of the Chief Councilor of the State of Yelang. Why...why... is she here? She..." Wang Jinyan frowned as she yelled. Everyone immediately realized who she was.

When people recalled the familiar voice coming from within, they were further shocked and wondered, 'Why is this lady... with him?'

As people buried themselves in thought, a voice was heard, "Your Majesty."

Everyone regained their composure and bowed to Emperor Ning.

Emperor Ning furrowed his brows and asked, "What's going on? I heard the noises from here all the way in Tingfeng Pavilion."

Prince Jing briefly shared the events with the Emperor. Emperor Ning furrowed his brows and let his eyes settle upon the lady on the ground, "Where is the man?"

Prince Jing sneered, "Bring him out!"

Then the secret guard escorted a man from behind the screen. Unlike the naked lady, the man was still wearing his underwear. His face was pale as he walked out.
