For the first time, some emotion leaked into Robert's tone—it seemed to be shame. "Because Lady Kelly once saved my life," he explained. The reason why he had helped Harper secretly was because he wanted to pay a debt of gratitude to her mother.

Harper pondered for a while again and then asked, "Where on earth is my uncle?"

"I'm not sure. I do know that he was heartbroken after your mother's death, so he offered to raise you himself. At the time, your father didn't care much for you, so he gave him permission. That is why you lived with him and your grandmother up until your uncle's disappearance."

Harper remembered her last conversation with her uncle, how he had told her that he was going on a long journey and didn't know when he would come back. He had told her to obey her grandmother and take care of herself. Sure enough, that was the last time she had seen or heard from him. The only thing he left to her was a copy of the Canon of Medicine which, according to his instructions, she had burned after learning it by heart.

For a long time, she was silent, lost in thought, and Robert was content to not interrupt her. Having watched her grow up, he knew her well enough to be comfortable in her presence, especially since he himself was no longer an irritable young man.

"I want you to select two reliable men and order them to go to the south and stay with Alexander," Harper finally said. "These two men must be excellent martial artists, so that they can teach him some self-defense skills. He is still young, so it's not too late to teach him."

"I ordered you to kill one lone, feeble woman, and this is the result you give me!" thundered the emperor.

"Forgive me, Your Majesty. It is my own fault, and I accept full responsibility."

The emperor threw up his hands in frustration. Everything was going wrong. Francis had come close to death and been moved from the Imperial Palace, and Sherry was inconsolable. Then Chloe had caught a cold. And the men sent to kill Harper had turned up dead!

"How is Charles now?" the emperor asked, suddenly remembering him. If Harper had any weakness, surely it would be her father.

"The last I heard, he has become a monk in the Holy Chant Temple," the man replied.

"Find a way to lure Harper there. And make sure that you kill her this time." The emperor hated Harper more than ever now. He was the supreme ruler of the nation, but he had been fooled by a mere woman. There was no way he could rest until she was dead at last, and more than that, he was eager to see how smug Matthew would be after losing his wife.

"Yes, Your Majesty."
