When arriving at the Imperial City, it was already the beginning of September. As the weather became colder, the chirping of cicadas became less. Yun Shang began to draw on the paper carefully with her pen. After a while, she stopped writing. The paper on the paper was a map of the State of Xia.

When Qian Yin came in with a cup of tea, she frowned at the map drawn by Yun Shang. "Your Highness, why do you draw this map of the State of Xia?"

Yun Shang didn't say a word. She put down the map, picked up her teacup, and went to a bench nearby to sit down. With a touch of sadness in her eyes, she said, "I calculated the days, and Ning Qian should have arrived in the State of Ning, right?"

Qian Yin thought for a while with her head tilted to one side, "She should have arrived at the borderland if it was normal. But it's not safe there. I'm afraid it will take some more time. I'm afraid it'll take a few more days."

Yun Shang nodded.

It had been a few days since they returned to the Imperial City. The tense atmosphere in the Imperial City a month ago seemed to have disappeared. It seemed that everyone had forgotten what had happened at that time, except for the few clans that had disappeared inexplicably. Yun Shang smiled. In fact, most of the time, the most ruthless people were these people. Even if someone else had become the Emperor, they would only be surprised by a few words, and would not have thought of how to live in a short time.

Yun Shang sighed before she looked up at Qian Yin, "In the recent days, ask the servants to buy more food in case of need."

Qian Yin nodded. The servant said outside, "Princess, Lady Shun Qing has come to visit."

It was Lady Shun Qing. Yun Shang stopped and thought, 'what is she doing here? Ning Ye has been a spy in her mansion for years. Do Prince Shun Qing and Lady Shun Qing know about it?'

Yun Shang put the teacup on the table and stood up, "Let's go to the front hall."

Compared with the last time they met, Lady Shun Qing seemed to be older and had much more grey hair. Yun Shang sighed. Indeed many things had happened in Prince Shun Qing's mansion these days. A daughter-in-law had colluded with the Empress and almost killed her. Another daughter-in-law was nowhere to be found. She didn't know why her son turned out to be another person. All of this was like a heavy punch in her heart.

Yun Shang walked into the front hall hesitantly, "Lady Shun Qing..." Yun Shang curtsied to Lady Shun Qing before taking a seat on the main seat. She asked a maid to serve tea and snacks to Lady Shun Qing, and asked with a smile, "Lady Shun Qing, what can I do for you?"

Lady Shun Qing looked at Yun Shang for a while before she said, "I don't want to bother you, but since Prince Jing is not in the Imperial City, I can't do anything about it. I'm here for my son..." She paused and sighed, "Well, he might not be my son."

Yun Shang knew she was talking about Ning Ye.

Lady Shun Qing smiled bitterly, "Well, I have four sons in my life. Ning Ye, the youngest of them, is a stubborn

't want to see it happen. He would have to face a turbulent empire."

Yun Shang sighed. She made the decision for both Prince Jing and for her little brother. In her previous life, she owed Lady Jin a lot. In this life, she wants to compensate her with all the best things in the world.

While they were talking, a loud voice came from outside, "Bad news! Bad news!"

Yun Shang couldn't help frowning and looked at the maid who rushed in. She knew this maid and had been by her side since her mother came out of the cold palace. The maid's name was Yingyu, which she believed.

"Is there a wolf chasing you?" Lady Jin looked at her with a smile. "What's wrong?"

She stamped her foot and said angrily, "I just heard from an attendant at the door of Jinluan Hall that when we went to court this morning, many officials proposed to select outstanding officials. They said that the Emperor had few sons and needed more resources to grow branches and leaves for the royal family. Your majesty... His majesty agreed... "

Yun Shang noticed the surprised look on Lady Jin's face, but she quickly regained her usual composure. "Yes, I know."

Seeing that Lady Jin didn't seem to care about it, Yingyu became more anxious. Just when she was about to speak, Lady Jin waved her hand to stop her and said, "You can leave now."

Yingyu stamped her foot and followed her order obediently.

The room was quiet for a while. Then Lady Jin whispered, "Now the court is in turmoil. It's normal for him to agree their suggestions to stabilize."

Yun Shang felt a dull pain in her heart. "Mother..."

Lady Jin suddenly turned to Yun Shang. "If you want to go to the KY City later, I'll mention it to his majesty."

Yun Shang was surprised, but Lady Jin looked determined. "When I was in the the Cold Palace, my father resigned and I lost everything in the court. In that case, I have to do something, lest I lose Chenxi afterwards."

Yun Shang paused for a while before she recognized the implication of Lady Jin's words. She nodded, "I see."
