Rarely did the newly married couple get along so well, but someone just wanted to ruin the pleasant atmosphere. Barry broke into the Phoenix House and had Elsie, Harper's maid, tied up and thrown on the floor, making her look so embarrassed.

Getting up right away, Harper called out, "Elsie."

"Hmm..." Barry had put a gag in Elsie's mouth, rendering her unable to speak. When she saw Harper, she could only make a muffled sound.

After putting down his chopsticks, Matthew shot Barry a glance. Barry was not the kind of man who would randomly mess around. With that in mind, Matthew believed that there must be a reason why Barry had to capture Harper's maid.

"Explain yourself." Those simple words felt like they carried a heavy weight in them.

"Your Highness, earlier today, Her Highness went out with two maids, and I happened to see this maid as she was sneaking out. At that time, I got a bit curious, so I followed her to see what she was up to. I saw with my own eyes how she secretly handed over the map that contained the defense layout of this mansion to someone else!" As he spoke, Barry shifted his gaze toward Harper. "She was doing it under Her Highness's order!"

When he heard that, Matthew had quite an unreadable expression on his face, and there wasn't even a trace of anger whatsoever. Then, he simply asked, "So, you captured her?"

"Yes," Barry answered as he knelt on one knee. "Your Highness, I can't bear to just sit quietly while you are being deceived by Her Highness. She only thinks about what's good for the Chu Clan and even betrayed you. She deserves to be punished!"

As she listened in silence, Harper sat down slowly. She had thought that something bad might have happened. Unexpectedly, Barry had Elsie all tied up and brought her back because of what she asked her to deliver.

When he saw Harper sitting down, Barry took it as a sign of guilt and her confession, and he said to her, "Your Highness, His Highness treats you well. He doesn't even mind that your previous engagement got called off. He offered a huge bride price and married you with a grand wedding ceremony. But in spite of that,

he distribution of the guards, it has been changed according to the distribution map His Highness gave me." A relieved expression finally appeared on Harper's face. "You caught my maid, but I'm not angry with you in the slightest. It just goes to show that you're indeed worried about His Highness."

"Your Highness..."

"You work for His Highness and so do I. Both His Majesty and Charles want me to be their spy, so I had to satisfy their wish, at least to some extent. They would never realize that I actually work for His Highness." The smile became glued on Harper's face. "But I didn't expect that you'd be the first person to be suspicious of me."

"Your Highness, is that true?" Barry asked Matthew.

"Yes, what she said is true. She is indeed working for me," Matthew said, nodding his head to confirm it.

At that moment, Barry desperately wanted to hide inside a hole in embarrassment. He was sincerely worried that the prince might get heartbroken if he were to find out that Harper betrayed him. That being said, he didn't expect that Harper and Matthew had come to an agreement and she actually worked for him, and here he was, causing trouble for them. Would the prince have him killed?

"Your Highness, I..."

"Well, since you were in the dark about it, let's just forget it. You may take your leave now." After telling Barry to leave, Matthew suggested Harper that they should continue to have dinner.
