Yun Shang felt delighted at Jing Ying's words. Though the kidnappers had abducted her successfully, they didn't spot the secret guards following her. Had the culprit behind the kidnapping known about the existence of the secret guards, special precautions would have been taken to prevent the secret guards from finding her.

"I must stay here. I need to know who is plotting against me." Yun Shang said in a low voice.

Jing Ying stayed silent for a moment before replying, "I will report this to the Prince. The culprit came here just now. He had a talk with Master Zhao in a room in the west wing in the courtyard. It seems the culprit is an expert in Kung Fu, so I dared not approach the room. Therefore, I know nothing about their discussions. But the culprit left in fifteen minutes. The culprit moved so fast that none of us could catch up. But it was not difficult to track Master Zhao. We may find some clues soon."

Yun Shang nodded, "You must be careful."

Jing Ying uttered a "hum" before disappearing in the darkness. As Yun Shang felt quite exhausted, she fell asleep again.

It was already dawn when Yun Shang awoke. The servant girls had prepared water for Yun Shang to wash. Judging from their usual behavior, Yun Shang understood that they were unaware of Jing Ying's visit. Breakfast was served after the Princess finished washing. It was a bow of gruel boiled with Lily and the seed of Job's Tears, and several crispy vegetables.

Yun Shang said nothing to the servant girls. She asked Qin Yi and Qian Yin to sit and have breakfast with her. After that, she lay on the bench to take a short nap.

Nothing happened in the morning. Nor did Master Zhao come to pay Yun Shang a visit.

The lunch was quite abundant. As some of the dishes were Yun Shang's favorites, she ate a lot. But shortly after the lunch, Yun Shang felt a faint headache. When she was about to ask for help, she heard a noise by he

p thought, Yun Shang heard someone speaking, "You must pass the checkpoint before entering the Palace. Who is in the carriage?"

It seemed they had arrived at the entrance of the Imperial Palace. Yun Shang heard Master Zhao say, "Officer, I come from the neighboring village. My son is sick. I bring him here to see the physician. Please, take pity on us and let us in, sir."

"I'd like to help you. But Prince Jing has ordered us to check every person who enters or leaves the Imperial Palace. My head would be off my neck if I fail to conduct my duty. Raise the curtain of the carriage. I must take a look." The coarse voice of the man, somehow, sounded familiar to Yun Shang. After a long while, she finally recalled who he was. He must be Wang Shunlai, one of Prince Jing's subordinates.

Was Wang Shunlai checking them? According to what Master Zhao had said, Yun Shang could not help but burst into a bitter smile. She must have been changed into a youngster who was seriously ill. Yun Shang had to admit that it was really a good trick to escape being noticed by soldiers.

Suddenly, Yun Shang sensed a brighter light in the carriage. Yun Shang withheld her breath as she felt someone watching her. After a short while, she heard Wang Shunlai speak, "You can leave now."
