Hearing this, everyone was stunned and looked up at Yun Shang.

"Who is it? I'll bring someone to take the murder here." A maid said hurriedly.

Yun Shang shook her head, with a helpless look in her eyes. "If I'm not wrong, the murderer should be General Zhao."

Everyone was surprised, and so was Qin Yi. She shook her head and said, "How could it be General Zhao? Lady Zhao is his biological mother, and he is always filial. When Your Highness was busy investigating just now, I saw that General Zhao was very anxious, as if he would rather be poisoned himself than looking at her mother in pain.

With her bulged belly, she felt tired after standing for a long time. She asked someone to bring a chair to the kitchen and sat down. Then she said indifferently, "Yes, but the murderer could only be him."

Seeing the incredulous look on everyone's face, Yun Shang began to explain carefully, "The poison should be put in the pot of jasmine flower. There is no poison in the teacups, water, and tea leaves and the people served here are our own people who wouldn't poison Lady Zhao. Only the jasmine petals picked by Lady Zhao could be poisoned."

Yun Shang paused briefly and said, "In this case, the person who poisoned Lady Zhao had to know her habits very well. If he didn't know that Lady Zhao had the habit of adding jasmines to tea, he would definitely not poison the jasmine as the chance would be too slim. All the servants around Lady Zhao have been changed. You haven't spent much time with her, so you can't know her preferences at all. Only General Zhao is a suspect."

"And I have been thinking that the seventh prince are now imprisoned. Xia Huanyu has just left Huaiyin City. Even if the some spy of the Su clan is with Xia Huanyu, it would take at least ten days for those in the Palace to receive the news. It couldn't be so fast."

Yun Shang paused and continued, "But there is one thing I haven't figured out. The toxicity of the heartbreak grass is extremely high. Even if there was only some spas of the herb on the jasmine, Lady Zhao could've had severer symptoms."

After Yun Shang finished her words, Qin Yi asked in a low voice, "But why did a filial man like General Zhao poison his mother?"

Yun Shang didn't have to think about it carefully and understood, "I'm afraid it's because General Zhao doesn't want Lady Zhao to come back to His Majesty."

Yun Shang could understand what Zhao Yingjie was thinking. After all, Zhao Yingjie was the child of Empress Hua and General Zhao. Although he pretended to be indifferent, he couldn't accept that his mother had been married before, and he didn't want her to return to another man.

"Your Highness, what should we do now?" Qin Yi frowned and had no idea.

Yun Shang thought for a while and stood up. "I'll talk to General Zhao and take out the pot of jasmine to confirm my guess."

Yun Shang asked Qin Yi and the others to wait outside. When she entered the room alone and was about to lift the curtain at the door of the bedroom, she heard a faint voice

the mention of Luo Qingyan, Yun Shang's eyes softened. "His Highness was saved by someone when he was a baby boy, but soon a natural disaster grabbed everything from him. After that, he had to wander around alone. He went through all the hardships and survived.

"Later, he met my grandfather, the deceased Emperor, and was adopted by him. However, in the Imperial Palace even some real princes might not have an easy life, let alone an adopted son. In order to survive, he started to go into war with the deceased Emperor at a very young age, shuttling back and forth between the blades, which left him countless scars over his body. Later, the deceased Emperor started to pay more attention to him. However, when he was about ten years old, the former Emperor passed away, and my father took over the throne. He was afraid that my father would be suspicious, so he had to stay at the frontier..."

Yun Shang turned to look at Zhao Yingjie with tears in her eyes, but she still smiled, "His Highness has seldom talked about it, but I could feel the pain deep in his heart. I hope that he can be taken care of by his family. But His Highness can't afford His Majesty's care. As the Emperor, even if His Majesty just shows a little more concern about His Highness, that might put him in fatal danger.

"Fortunately, he has you and Her Ladyship now. Although Her Ladyship has lost her memory, she is still His Highness's mother, and you are his half-brother. More or less, it is a comfort to His Highness. His Highness does have many half-brothers and half-sisters in the Palace, but there is no affection between royal members. Both you and His Highness loved the battlefield so much that you could naturally have a lot to talk about. His Highness also appreciated you very much. As the saying goes, if the brothers are of the same mind, their sharpness can cut through metal. I believe that you and His Highness will be able to be invincible. General, do you think I'm right?" Yun Shang looked at Zhao Yingjie with burning eyes.
