Yun Shang said with a cold sneer, "gossip really is a fearful thing. They just regarded the man who had a quarrel with Cangjue Kangning as Prince Jing without even looking at him with their own eyes. Then they can reasonably blame the death of Cangjue Kangning on his highness."

Qian Yin sighed, "but why didn't his highness come out to explain?"

"I also want to know why." Yun Shang said indifferently, "if someone dares to set a trap on us, he must be sure that his highness won't show up."

But where was his highness right now? Why didn't he appear? Yun Shang leaned against the bench and tapped the edge of the bench with her fingers. She frowned and pondered.

Prince Jing had never shown up. His mansion was under close surveillance. Since there was nothing to do, Yun Shang always stayed in the mansion watching books and sleeping. Occasionally, she talked with Wang Jinyan who came to visit. To Yun Shang's surprise, Mrs. Jing had been very busy in the past few days. She came here only to have a brief conversation with Yun Shang everyday. Yun Shang kept an eye on what she said, it seemed that Mrs. Jing was trying to find out whether Prince Jing had contacted her in secret or not.

Yun Shang was surprised and wondered why the grand councilor mansion was so concerned about this matter.

The crown prince of the state of Xia's body had already been transferred back to the state of Xia, but Xia Huanyu was still staying in the imperial city. On the surface, he was only looking for the criminal who had killed the crown prince of the state of Xia, but he was not very keen on investigating the case. He had come to the prince's mansion twice, and Yun Shang was no longer aggressive. She came here to serve the emperor of the stat

meone like Jing Kui, who held power, he was afraid of being seized by others, as if treading on thin ice. Therefore, every spending in the grand councilor's mansion was clearly written on the account. Yun Shang had tried every means to bribe the steward in charge of the account book. In the past few months, Jing Wenlan had bought several money, with a number of jewelry on it.

Yun Shang had asked someone to inquire about everyone Jing Wenlan had seen in recent months. She carefully combed her information into a pamphlet, and to her surprise, she found Prince Jing among them.

Yun Shang frowned and wondered, 'why did Jing Wenlan meet Prince Jing?' Judging from the date, it should be not long after she and Prince Jing returned to the imperial city.

Yun Shang called the Butler in a hurry to inquire about this matter. The Butler thought for a moment and said, "that day, his highness did go out. I remember that he rarely went out since he was injured and went back to his mansion. Your highness should have been in the palace at that time, and the grand councilor's mansion sent him an invitation, in which it wrote grand councilor Jing's invitation."
