Lord Hua Guo has been ill? Hearing that, Yun Shang and Luo Qingyan both frowned. Yun Shang asked, "What happened? I heard from the servants that Lord Hua Guo had been to Prince Rui's mansion yesterday. Why did he suddenly fall ill?"

The butler answered hastily, "I don't know, Your Highness. It was not until this morning that I found it. His Lordship has the habit of morning exercise, but he was still sleeping after 7 o'clock. I felt something was wrong and knocked the door. No one answered, so I pushed the door open and saw His Lordship looked pale with his eyes closed. He seemed to be suffering from great pain, and his body was cold. Besides, his pulse was weak."

Yun Shang's heart sank when she heard the butler's words. She hurriedly said, "Please lead the way. I'll go and have a look."

The Butler answered yes, and led Yun Shang into the mansion. They reached a turret after a quarter of an hour's walk. The butler led them to a room on the second floor, and opened the door for Yun Shang, "Please."

The room is very quiet. The moment Yun Shang stepped into the room, she felt the scent of sandalwood. The furniture in the study were all black, which was quite different from Lord Hua Guo's impression on her.

Lord Hua Guo entered the bedchamber. It had the same style as the study. There were only two maids serving him in the room. Lord Hua Guo was lying on the bed, motionless.

"Where is grandma?" Yun Shang looked around and didn't see her, so she turned to the butler.

The butler answered promptly. "I haven't informed Her Ladyship yet. I'm afraid she is too weak to bear this. In fact, other masters are all in the court. The first thing I thought of was to report to your highnesses."

Yun Shang nodded, walked to the bedside, and sat down. She raised Lord Hua Guo's hand to feel his pulse, and frowned. After a long while, she put his hand down.

"Are you alright, your highness?" Anxiety was written all over the butler's face. Even Luo Qingyan looked up at Yun Shang

d me to bring him a brazier."

"Felt cold?" Yun Shang repeated it in a low voice, "Is there anything else wrong?"

Another maid immediately added, "His Lordship slept earlier than usual yesterday. His Lordship always sleeps around ten o'clock in the evening. But yesterday evening he went to bed before nine."

Yun Shang nodded and asked again, "What did His Lordship do after dinner? And when?"

The two maids thought for a while and answered, "His Lordship had dinner at 5:30 p.m. After the dinner, he accompanied Her Ladyship to take a walk in the courtyard. Then he went to the training ground at about 6:30 p.m. and came back at a little past 7 p.m. He took a shower and then read a book in the room. Then he went to bed at about 8:40 p.m."

Yun Shang nodded slightly. Since Lady Hua Guo had the dishes with Lord Hua Guo and she's been fine, and there was nothing wrong with the liquor, the dinner had no problem. Lord Hua Guo might get poisoned during the period of practicing martial arts, taking bath, and reading books.

Yun Shang was about to go to the martial arts performing field when the doctor came. She was stunned when she found she had seen this doctor before. He was the man in white in the inconspicuous pharmacy in the San Cun Alley of the city. Yun Shang didn't expect that he was working for Luo Qingyan.
