"The Su Mansion?" Frowning slightly, Xia Huanyu subconsciously glanced at Empress Hua. Seeing that Empress Hua had been looking at the stage, he kept silent for a while and asked softly, "Who are in the Su Mansion?"

Li Qianmo replied in a hurry, "Su Qi's concubines, his daughters-in-law and his grandchildren are in the mansion."

"Send someone to check the casualties." Xia Huanyu answered indifferently. When he turned his head, he saw Yun Shang looking at him. He paused for a while and then turned to the stage.

The beauties on the boat had already boarded the stage. Each of them held a Pipa in their hands. They danced gracefully while playing the Pipa. Their clothes fluttered in the air, which was breathtaking.

When the Pipa dance was over, Luo Qingyan stood up and said, "Today is my son's full moon party. Thank you for coming. I'll drink three cups of wine to express my thanks to all of you."

After he drank the wine, Liu Wenan took the imperial edict and stood aside with a smile. "His Majesty has an imperial edict."

Everyone hurriedly knelt down to listen to the imperial edict, which was the same as what Xia Huanyu had said before. The Emperor named the son of the Crown Prince Chengye and bestowed him with a prince title, Ming Jin.

As Yun Shang expected, everyone present looked at each other in dismay and bowed to the Emperor.

Yun Shang smiled and asked Hua'er to prepare the second performance, which was an opera called Success and failure are both due to Xiao He.

Yun Shang had asked someone to add this opera on whim. Looking at the actor on the stage whose face could not be seen, the corners of Yun Shang's mouth slightly curled up. She turned to Empress Hua and said, "This opera is my new favorite. Do you like it, Your Majesty?"

Hearing this, the Empress turned to Yun Shang and said with a smile, "It's a classic. Success is due to Xiao He, downfall is also due to Xiao He. But I'm wondering who is Xiao He?"

Empress Hua definitely knew who Xiao He was. What she asked was who the Xiao He in the play implicate.

Yun Shang smiled and said something that had nothing to do with the opera, "I've heard a saying before. Noble clans could keep their prosperity for at most three generations, but there is a family in the State of Xia that has been favored by the emperors for a long time. However, the recent generation went into a rapid descent. Although there were still some people in the clan who were in high positions, they did not achieve much in both literature and martial arts. But even so, the family was still powerful in the court. I think the reason is that there is such a Xiao He among the family."

Hearing this, Xia Huanyu, who was watching the opera, turned to Yun Shang, lost in thought.

Yun Shang smiled again, "I don't know if the fire of the Su Mansion is extinguished or not. It would be a pity if the foundation of the Su clan is destroyed in this way."

The opera was a long one. Bao'er seemed to feel a little noisy. He pursed his lips and began to cry again. Yun Shang picked up Bao'er in a hurr

y and his voice was very calm.

Yun Shang nodded and made a gesture to Hua'er in the distance. Then a group of actors started dancing on the drum which were floating in the lake. With the beats of the drum, they were singing ancient song of blessing.

From the corner of Yun Shang's eyes, she saw Li Qianmo walking towards them quickly.

"Your Majesty, I have inquired about it. There are one hundred and thirty-two people in the Su Mansion today. I've found one hundred and forty-six corpses there." Li Qianmo bowed and reported in a low voice.

His voice was covered by the song and there was no response from Xia Huanyu. When Li Qianmo was about to repeat it, he heard the voice of Xia Huanyu, "Oh, where did the extra people come from?"

Li Qianmo said in a low voice, "We are investigating in the mansion. But because of the big fire, the corpses were burned beyond recognition and are almost difficult to recognize."

"Forget it. It doesn't matter. Don't bother to investigate it. Sit down and enjoy the performance." Xia Huanyu was as calm as ever.

Yun Shang frowned and felt that Xia Huanyu seemed too calm today.

Li Qianmo seemed to be stunned too. He didn't answer for a long time. When he came to his senses, he answered in a hurry, "Yes, Your Majesty."

The drumbeats and the song were loud, but Yun Shang always felt that she had vaguely heard some other sound which seemed to come from outside.

As the song faded away, Yun Shang heard the voice grow louder and louder. It turned out that it was not her illusion.

"Kill... Kill the damned emperor! Go to the Imperial Palace to kill them all, leaving no one alive!" The sound outside was very loud, and the echoing sound was even deafening. The faint sound of horse's hooves could be heard, as if soldiers and horses were besieging the Crown Prince's Mansion.

The rest of the people also heard it clearly. For a moment, the scene was a little chaotic. Someone was screaming, someone was running around, and someone was shouting, "The traitors have attacked the city."
