The smile at the corners of Xia Huanyu's mouth was somewhat ironic. After listening to Xia Houjing for such a long time, he nodded and said, "Really? So you have made a great contribution. When this matter is settled, you will be rewarded for your contribution."

Hearing this, Xia Houjing seemed very happy. He kowtowed several times and pretended to be humble. "I just did a little bit to stabilize the state of Xia."

Xia Huanyu glanced at him coldly and said, "That's it for today. I'll deal with it later. The Palace needs to be cleaned up. You can go back home first."

Yun Shang, Luo Qingyan and Xia Houjing immediately obeyed the Emperor and slowly left the Taiji Palace.

The three walked down the long stone steps together. Xia Houjing turned to look at Luo Qingyan and Yun Shang, with a smile on his face. "I heard that today is the full moon party of the eldest son of Your Hignesses Crown Prince and Crown Princess. I wonder if I have the honor to have a drink at my nephew's party?"

Luo Qingyan didn't respond. Yun Shang smiled and said, "Of course, you are welcome."

Xia Houjing seemed to be very happy. He grinned and said, "Thank you, Your Highness Crown Princess. I've just entered the city and I've been in a mess after the long trip. It's not appropriate to meet guests like this. I'll go back to my mansion and change my clothes. Then I'll come to your mansion to congratulate you."

After getting down the stone steps, Xia Houjing stood in front of the carriage and waited for Luo Qingyan and Yun Shang to get on it. He didn't get on his carriage until their carriage started.

Yun Shang opened the curtain and looked at the staggering figure of the seventh Prince. The corners of her mouth were slightly curled up. "It's getting more and more difficult to see through the seventh Prince."

Luo Qingyan smiled, "You don't need to see through him. Spare your time to look at me."

It took Yun Shang a long time to realize that Luo Qingyan was flirting with her. She glared at Luo Qingyan and stopped talking.

Luo Qingyan smiled and stopped joking. "He has a grudge against you when you were in the Lingxi City. You need to be careful."

Without Luo Qingyan's reminder, Yun Shang knew she should be careful. She nodded and leaned on Luo Qingyan's shoulder, thinking about something.

After a while, Yun Shang frowned and suddenly sat up straight. "It suddenly occurred to me that Hua Yutong hadn't shown up at the banquet."

Luo Qingyan turned to look at Yun Shang. After a long silence, he said slowly, "I didn't say anything since I saw you have a good relationship with Hua Yutong. But you must have found something wrong. I'm afraid Empress Hua is not on the same way with us. We can't keep her."

Hearing this, Yun Shang was in a daze. After a long silence, she lowered her head.

She had found many unusual things. She had thought that Hua Yutong might have been bribed by the sev

rd, Lady Hua Guo was sitting in the room, teasing Bao'er with a rattle in her hand. The sound of the rattle was very cheerful, and Bao'er had been staring at the rattle in Lady Hua Guo's hand. Qin Yi and the wet nurse stood aside and couldn't help smiling.

Seeing Yun Shang come in, Qin Yi hurried up to her and said, "Your Highness is back."

Yun Shang nodded and walked to the crib. She smiled at her happy baby and said, "What a carefree baby."

Lady Hua Guo put down the rattle and asked with a smile, "Is everything okay?"

Yun Shang nodded and said, "Everything is under control."

Yun Shang picked up the rattle and remembered that it was bought by Luo Qingyan in the street last time. Now it came in handy. Seeing that Bao'er liked it, Yun Shang shook it to tease him.

"That's good. That's good. I was so worried that something bad wound happen." Lord Guo's wife smiled and said, "although the Su group is not as strong as before, it has accumulated for so many years. A lean camel is bigger than a horse."

Yun Shang smiled, "It is just a dead camel now. As soon as this matter is over, there will be thorough cleanup in the court.

Lady Hua Guo nodded, "His Majesty must known clearly who were on the side of the Su clan. He just hasn't got a chance to get rid of them. Now that this matter has happened, it is a good opportunity to clean up some people with disharmony in the court. Fortunately, the imperial examination is about to begin, and they could spare some positions for the young people."

After a pause, Lady Hua Guo said, "His Lordship is getting old. It's time for him to resign."

Yun Shang was not surprised at all. When Empress Hua was the empress, in order not to make the Emperor feel that the Hua family wielded too much power, he had retired once. Now that the Empress Hua had returned to the Palace and Luo Qingyan had been bestowed with the Crown Prince, the Hua family should avoid arousing suspicion.
