Yun Shang's intuition was always accurate, and this time was no exception. Perhaps it was because the door and windows were closed tightly because of the rain, Yun Shang felt a little stuffy and didn't sleep well. She turned over and over again in the middle of the night. When she was about to fall asleep, she suddenly heard a sound coming from the air.

Although in sleep, she was still in a vigilant state. Hearing the sound, she quickly scooped up the quilt beside her and lifted it up.

The sound of something falling on the ground rang out. Almost at the same time, the light in the room was on, followed by the sound from the next room, "Assassins!"

Yun Shang lifted the bed curtain and got out of bed. Qian Zhuo was holding a sword, blocking in front of the bed. Yun Shang lowered her head and saw an arrow cut into two pieces on the ground of the room. She looked up and saw a hole in the paper pasted over the window.

Yun Shang immediately raised her voice and ordered, "Protect Lady Zhao. The assassins are on the top of the wall. Kill them all!"

The secret guards answered. Qin Yi came in in a hurry, took out a coat and draped it over Yun Shang's shoulder. Yun Shang hurried out of the door regardless of her disheveled hair.

It was still raining outside, so there was no way to light the torch. Through the lantern under the eaves, she could only vaguely see figures flashing on the wall. As soon as Yun Shang went out, the secret guards surrounded Yun Shang in a hurry.

Seeing arrows kept heading in, Yun Shang walked quickly into the room next to her. Lady Zhao had also got up and was sitting on the couch which had been moved to the corner from beside the window by the secret guards. There was no need to worry that the arrows would shoot in.

Qin Yi fetched a chair for Yun Shang who then sat down next to Lady Zhao and said softly, "Not too many people. They are probably here to explore the way tonight. It's not a big deal."

Lady Zhao nodded. There was no fear in her eyes, but excitement. She raised her head and ordered the maid standing aside, "Go and pour me a cup of tea."

The maid answered. She couldn't get out as the fighting outside hadn't been over. Then she took the furnace to the side room, boiling water and making tea.

"Last time His Majesty hurried to here and didn't bring many guards with him. Qian Yin sent a message and said that His majesty has brought a lot of secret guards, and even dispatched more than half of the imperial guards and the palace guards. We only need to hold on for ten days. It will be fine after His Majesty arrives." Yun Shang rubbed her forehead and sighed.

Lady Zhao glanced at Yun Shang and said with a smile, "I just found that you've got both brains and courage. Outside, the fighting is going on, but you are still chatting with me here. It's really admirable."

Yun Shang smiled, without saying anything.

After a while, the maid done boiling the water and came to pour te

they could handle it.

During the seventh night, nothing happened.

However, everyone felt something was wrong. Qian Yin guarded outside the room for the whole night, and even Lady Zhao got up twice.

In the daytime, Yun Shang received a letter from Luo Qingyan. The soldiers of the State of Yelang in Ganying City was almost annihilated by Luo Qingyan and Lord Hua Guo, but Qingsu escaped.

Yun Shang didn't feel surprised. Qingsu was vicious and cunning. He was indeed a tough opponent. But after all, they have won the battle. Luo Qingyan said he would come back soon.

Looking at the last five words, Yun Shang smiled sweetly.

It was not the first time that Luo Qingyan had left Yun Shang. But somehow, Yun Shang felt that their relationship seemed to be deeper this time. Maybe it was because of the letters sent by the eagles every day, and his love and concern hidden between the lines.

Yun Shang thought that she seemed to completely fall into love. Fortunately, Luo Qingyan seemed to have fallen in love with her not less than she did.

Thinking of this, Yun Shang's heart skipped a beat and the corners of her mouth curved up slightly.

For the next three days, it was peaceful during the night.

"Maybe all of the assassins in the first group they sent have been killed by us." Qian Zhuo said gently.

Sitting aside, Lady Zhao shook her head and said, "I think a storm is coming."

Yun Shang listened to the two with a smile. Seeing that Lady Zhao was looking at her, she said unhurriedly, "In the past few days, I have been thinking that the assassins have come for seven consecutive nights. It makes sense that they might send a few people to come here, exploring the way at the first night. But why were there still only a few assassins in the next few days? There were three or four dozen assassins every day, two or three hundred people in total. If two or three hundred people came together, they would've got a greater chance to win, right?"
