Harper emerged from the Eastern Palace with Forsythia in tow, intent on returning home. Right outside the gate, however, she was met by a group of armed men led by Ken, the commander of the palace guards.

"General Ken, can I help you?" Harper kept the worry from her voice. She had no relationship with Ken, whether personal or professional. If he had any business with her, it had to be by order of the emperor himself.

Her hunch was immediately proven right. With a proper salute, Ken said, "Greetings, Your Highness. His Majesty wants to see you."

"Well then, please lead the way." The expression on Harper's face didn't change.

"Certainly, Your Highness." Pleased that Harper did not resist, Ken had his men form up around her, and together they whisked her away.

For her part, Harper was certain that this boded ill. The emperor had already begun to have doubts about her. Felix had been poisoned with the Lethal Seven, and she was able to cure him. Matthew too, had been poisoned with the Lethal Seven. The emperor began to suspect that she was the one who had cured Matthew in the beginning.

At that very moment, the emperor was waiting in the Imperial Study. When he had heard that Harper had cured the crown prince, he immediately thought of Matthew's poison. Matthew said it was the head of the Medical Valley who had cured him.

But the emperor now didn't believe what Matthew had said. Matthew was his brother, and he knew him very well. Matthew never did anything without good reason. He had arranged four marriages for Matthew. The first three brides had each died before the wedding date under what was best described as murky circumstances. Harper was the first one to meet with no accident, which suggested that she had found a way to

there was no antidote to the Lethal Seven. I was curious about it, so I began to study it."

"Well, you have a glib tongue. Then, tell me, who cured Matthew's legs?" There was fire in the emperor's eyes again. He thought he might well kill Harper if she lied to him again, consequences be damned.

But Harper's answer to that question hadn't changed. "It was the head of the Medical Valley."

"Was it?!" bellowed the emperor.

"It was," maintained Harper, nodding. "When Matthew was being detoxified, I was ambushed by people from the Medical Valley and lost consciousness. When I woke up, he had been cured. It was not my doing."

The emperor narrowed his eyes and asked, "What do you think of the fact that I forced Charles to become a monk?"

Harper's reply was flat and immediate. "He must obey your commands. Everyone must accept their fates, and that one is his. Even if he is my father, I can't let him go against your orders."

"But I've heard that you cured Matthew's legs. Is that true?" In reality, the emperor wasn't thinking of the details of that matter. He simply hoped that if he kept Harper talking, sooner or later she would contradict herself.
