The Department of Punishment was a place for the extraction of secrets, and there were an endless variety of tortures employed for that end. Among all its unfortunate visitors in its history thus far, none of them had ever been able to resist those tortures and keep their secrets.

The assassin who was caught was, at last, no longer able to endure the harsh punishments that he went through. He confessed and delivered an unambiguous confession which made Matthew the most likely killer of the crown prince.

"It's really him!" the emperor shouted out in rage as he looked at the confession presented in front of him. But there was only one witness. Matthew's crime could not be confirmed with just one witness, and thus there could be no conviction. But the emperor would not let Matthew go that easily. He sat on the throne, his eyes closed as if he were thinking about something. After a long time, he finally opened his old eyes and called, "Someone."

"Yes, Your Majesty."

"Tell Hoffman to come here and see me."

"Yes, Your Majesty."

"In addition, give orders to Matthew's mansion. Matthew is suspected of trying to assassinate the crown prince. All the members of his mansion are forbidden from going out until Matthew is proven to be innocent." The emperor's face turned blue from anger. He hadn't expected that Matthew would attack Felix. Did this mean that Matthew could no longer tolerate all the others? If yes, then the attempted assassination of Felix was just a start.

At the thought that Matthew might betray him, the emperor started to fidget. Worries and anxiousness surrounded him and haunted him. He knew that the Bright Dynasty would be dysfunctional without Matthew. Still, he had found fault with Matthew so many times already. He had always believed that Matthew would never take revenge on him, because Matthew valued the survival of the Bright Dynasty. Now, the emperor gradually realized that Matthew's concern for the Bright Dynasty did not mean that he would never

hing Matthew for the murder of the crown prince.

After the emperor put Matthew and his family under house arrest, Matthew did not protest. He just kept calm and enjoyed his life with Harper inside the mansion. They were now playing Go.

Seeing this, Rufus could not help but murmur in a low voice, "Come on! You're all under house arrest, but you're still in the mood to play Go. You face the serious accusation of murdering the crown prince! How can you two stay calm?"

"Honey, enjoy the grapes. They are from the southeast. They should taste rather sweet," Harper said as she placed the grapes in front of Matthew. There was a flattering smile on her face.

Looking at the grapes, and then at her smiling face, Matthew turned to her and asked, "Do you want to trick me while I am eating grapes?"

Harper blinked innocently. "Darling, am I that sort of woman?"

"No, I know you're not," Matthew replied. He then stretched out his hands to take some grapes. Right at that moment, Harper moved a stone on the board with nimble fingers. Seeing this, Rufus screamed out.

"Hey you... Ouch!" Rufus' scream became louder and louder. Harper held the flesh around his waist and gave him a hard twist. Then she stared at him menacingly, and said, "Rufus, we are having fun playing Go. Don't you think you should leave us alone?"
