At the same time, in the Crown Prince's Mansion, Empress Hua was playing chess with Yun Shang. After a chess piece was put down, Empress Hua smiled and said, "Many things are like the chess game, where people are attacking each other. Shang'er, what should I do if someone offends me?"

Hearing this, Yun Shang knew what Empress Hua was referring to. She gently dropped the chess piece in her hand, and her smile became brighter. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me thrice, get rid of you."

Hearing this, the Empress's eyes suddenly flashed with light. "Speaking of this, someone has already fooled me twice." As Empress Hua spoke, she put down the chess pieces, picked up Yun Shang's chess pieces from the chessboard one by one, and put them aside. "This time, just as Shang'er said, I'll get rid of the one."

As soon as Empress Hua finished her words, she heard footsteps and baby's crying outside the door. Yun Shang quickly stood up and walked to the door. She saw Qin Yi come in with Bao'er in her arms. "Bao'er, don't cry. Bao'er, don't cry. Your mother is here..."

Yun Shang immediately took over the baby. As soon as Bao'er was in Yun Shang's arms, he stopped crying and looked at Yun Shang with his big eyes. There were still tears on his eyelashes, but he was laughing with his hands clapped.

Empress Hua walked to Yun Shang and wiped off the tears from the corner of Bao'er's eyes. Her face softened. "Bao'er is so clingy to you and he is able to recognize his mother. Yingjie was like this when he was a child. He was happy in my arms and started to cry as soon as I let go of him."

Hearing her mention of Zhao Yingjie, Yun Shang smiled and turned to her. "Your Majesty doesn't seem to dislike General Zhao. Besides, many officials in the court tried to talk about General Zhao, but they were all suppressed by His Majesty. I have told Qingyan that General Zhao likes to fight. If there is a chance, he could send General Zhao to the military camp. But I'm afraid General Zhao has to start from an ordinary soldier..."

Yun Shang kissed Bao'er on his cheek, and he giggled.

Hearing Yun Shang's words, Empress Hua was very happy. "It doesn't matter for him to start as an ordinary soldiers. The gold will shine sooner or later."

Yun Shang nodded, "General Zhao is excellent in military tactics. It's not difficult for him to stand out."

Empress Hua smiled and sat down beside the chessboard. She thought for a while and said, "Compared with these, I'm more worried about his marriage. He was delayed by Princess Hua Jing before, so he didn't want to get married again. I know he is afraid that I might be mistreated if he marries a bad tempered woman. But the situation is different now. I hope he could find someone who knows him well to accompany him."

Yun Shang thought for a while and looked at Qin Yi. After a moment's hesitation, she said softly, "I have a good candidate."

"Oh?" Empress Hua's eyes lit up and stared at Yun Shang.

Yun Shang raised her eyebrows, "

un Shang thought for a moment and frowned. "I'm afraid someone is spreading the rumors on purpose. What about the pestilence? Why did it occur all of a sudden?"

Hearing Yun Shang's question, Qian Yin looked much more serious. She quickly replied, "I've sent someone to inquire about it. The pestilence came from Liu Village outside the city. It's said that it's caused by mice. It seems that some rats been infected with the pestilence. Then someone was bitten by a rat for no reason. After that, he began to have a fever on the second day and died after suffering for two days. At first, his family didn't take it seriously. When they realized that something was wrong after he died, they had already been infected. Then the people in that village died one after another. It seemed that someone was afraid and ran away before the matter was exposed. As a result, they brought the pestilence into the city."

"Rats?" Yun Shang frowned and kept silent for a while. Then she said, "Doctor Zheng is still in our mansion. Ask a servant to take you to find him later and let him accompany you to Liu Village. Find a way to catch a rat back."

Qian Yin was stunned, but she didn't ask Yun Shang why. She said in a low voice, "But if the rat is infected with the pestilence, it's dangerous to bring it back to the mansion..."

Yun Shang kept silent for a while and said, "It doesn't matter. I have my own way. But be careful when you catch it. Don't be bitten."

Qian Yin replied in a hurry and continued, "By the way, Your Highness, there's another news from Lingxi City that the seventh Prince has escaped."

Hearing the news, Yun Shang didn't have much reaction. She just nodded and said, "It doesn't matter. Has the pill been put into his meal?"

Qian Yin nodded, "Yes, Your Highness."

"That's good." Yun Shang said softly, but the baby in her arms suddenly cried again. Yun Shang quickly stood up and walked back and forth in the room to comfort the baby. Seeing this, Qian Yin bid goodbye and left in a hurry.
