"I said, enough!" the emperor ordered. All of this was beginning to get on his nerves. "Now that we know she did it, it proves that Hansen is indeed innocent. Guards, take Felicia out of here and have her beaten to death."

"No, no, please, Your Majesty! I didn't do it! I'm innocent! I'm innocent!" Felicia screamed in fear for her life.

"Your Majesty, there's still something I have to say!" Shirley opened her mouth and stopped them.

With a wave of the emperor's hand, the guards stepped back. Not having the patience to let this matter drag on, he asked, "Make it quick. What else do you want to say?"

"I'm also guilty, Your Majesty. Mister Hansen held my mother and brother hostage and used them to threaten me to poison Lady Carrie. She was the biological mother of Mister Hansen's deceased wife. That left me with no other choice but to poison Lady Carrie. I know full well that I won't be able to escape death, but I'm still grateful because Lady Carrie had been good to me. For that reason, I've decided that I must tell you everything..."

"You bitch! You are talking complete nonsense!" Hansen hurled back at once. Hearing that frightened him so much that the color was flushed out of his face. At that moment, he had no idea why Shirley would suddenly bring that up and tell others about it, let alone the emperor himself.

"Stop spouting nonsense, Shirley! You may get others into trouble!" Kate exclaimed in a forbidding tone, looking as though she would have no qualms about killing her mother and brother should Shirley continue saying anything further.

Slowly crawling toward the emperor, Shirley said, "Your Majesty, Lady Carrie had been good to me. But I ended up betraying her and even killed her in order to save my family. I only did as Mister Hansen ordered and poisoned her to death. This is the token Mister Hansen used when he asked me to kill Lady Carrie. Please have a look at it. I know I am guilty, and I won't try to run away from the consequences of my actions anymore. Your Majesty, please uphold justice for Lady Carrie as well!"

Hearing this, Kate was the first to react, telling the emperor at once, "Your Majesty, I think the maid has gone insane and is making all of this up. Hansen would never think of poisoning Lady Carrie. After all, she is the biological mother of his wife. How could he do something so heartless? Please think this through, Your Majesty!"

"So, it was you who poisoned her!" When Felicia finally came to her senses and realized what Shirley had just said, she pointed her finger at Hansen. "You are so heartless. You poisoned Lady Carrie in such a vicious way. That poor woman! She ended up dying such a miserable death. Hansen, how could you do such a thing!"

"Ha! Are you seriously calling me spiteful? It's like the pot calling the kettle black! No matter how spiteful I may be, I would never be as vicious as you are! You even tried to kill your own sister—your own flesh and blood. How could I ever hope to compete with you in thi

d to return to the imperial capital."

"Thank you for letting me live, Your Majesty," Shirley said as she prostrated herself in front of the emperor. When she got there, she was already prepared to accept her fate and knew that she was doomed to die, so she was so surprised to find out that she was actually going to escape death.

"Your Majesty, Your Majesty, please! Hansen is my only son! Please have mercy on him!" Kate wouldn't stop groveling on the floor before the emperor. Right now, she was feeling remorse for what she had done. It wouldn't have had to come to this if only she didn't catch Felicia and have her taken here in front of the emperor. At this point, she would feel extremely satisfied as long as her son would be able to go on living here. Unfortunately for them, he was going to be imprisoned in the borderland as a slave.

"I've made up my mind. You may take your leave," the emperor said in a resolute tone.

"Your Majesty, please! I only have one son. Do you really have the heart to leave me all by myself?" Kate cried out, pleading for his forgiveness.

"What nonsense are you spewing? Kevin has a number of sons. Each of them is yours. Everyone calls you 'Mother.' You just said you only had one son, so does that mean you don't think of those other children as your own?" the emperor roared, fuming with intense rage.

"I... That's not what I meant. Your Majesty, please spare Hansen. I know what I did was wrong. I shouldn't have been so unreasonable. Please just spare Hansen and I swear I won't pursue the matter anymore. Your Majesty, I beg you!"

"I've had enough of your blabbering! Go home and reflect on what happened! If you don't listen to me, I'm going to teach you a lesson!" Waving his hand in utter disgust, the emperor ordered his guards to send Kate out even if they had to drag her. This sent shivers down Charles' spine as he broke out in a cold sweat. He understood that everything was over now and no one would be able to do anything about it.
