The imperial study.

After listening to Chu Qi’s report, Long Yang stopped in the midst of marking Palace Memorials. “Mission failed?” he asked.

“Yes.” Chu Qi frowned. “Out of all the covert guards we sent, only a few returned. Jiang Chong and Liu Fu have successfully escorted Long Chi to Xuyang, Please instruct us on what to do next, Master.”

Long Yang was surprised. He had planned to prevent Long Chi from going to Xuyang, but it seemed that his nephew had thwarted him this time.

“Since he managed to reach Xuyang in one piece, it shows that he’s still somewhat capable. Let’s leave this matter at that for now.”

“Yes, Master,” replied Chu Qi respectfully. After thinking for a moment, he added, “The mission would have been a success if Liu Fu and Jiang Chong hadn’t suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Jiang Chong had a group of covert guards with him too, and they helped the Prince escape to Xuyang.”

Long Yang tapped on the table with his fair, slender knuckles. “I forgot that Jiang Chong was the leader of the covert guards when Crown Prince Jianzhang was still alive. After the Crown Prince passed, he turned to serve Long Chi. He indeed has a group of covert guards at his command, and he must have
been secretly training them all these years.”

Chu Qi asked, “But the Prince of Xuyang still poses a dormant threat. Why don’t you find an excuse and dispose of him, Master?”

Long Yang shook his head. “It’s not the time yet. I just deposed him from the position of Crown Prince, and if I order him to be executed so soon, it’ll be too obvious that I want him dead. Let’s wait for a while first.”
Hearing this, Chu Qi nodded silently.

Grand Phoenix Palace.

‘The wound on Lu Liangwei’s neck had healed. There were still two faint scars, but they were not visible at first glance, thanks to the medicine Ling Lihua developed for her.
She could have developed a scar removal medicine herself, but since her mother had prepared one, she decided to use it.

Lin Qingyuan gave her a quick lookover and asked, “Will those scars fade?”

Lu Liangwei nodded. “Of course. Didn’t you notice that they’re less obvious now than they were two days ago?”

Lin Qingyuan took a closer look and realized that it was indeed the case. Thinking of something, she suddenly stuck out a hand to Lu Liangwei.

Lu Liangwei stopped in the midst of eating grapes. “What’re you doing?”

“Trecall you saying that your mother developed this medicine. You must have some left, right? Can you give some to me?” said Lin Qingyuan fawningly.

Lu Liangwei was indifferent. “Why do you need it? You don’t have any scars on your body.”

“It’s called taking precautions, you know?” Lin Qingyuan pressed. “Come on, just give me a bit.”

Lu Liangwei pushed her face away, which had gotten too close. “Wait until you really need

Lin Qingyuan pouted. “You’re so stingy. In that case, I’m not going to tell you the news that I have.”

Lu Liangwei was uninterested. “Suit yourself.”

Lin Qingyuan was speechless for a moment before asking again unrelentingly, “You really don’t want to know?”

Lu Liangwei shook her head. “Not interested.”

Seeing this, Lin Qingyuan changed her tone to a teasing one. “Well, I guess it’s better if you don’t know, or else you’re definitely going to throw fit.”
Lu Liangwei rolled her eyes. “I’m not as petty as you.”

Lin Qingyuan snickered and said calmly, “That’s because you still don’t know what happened in the court.”

Hearing this, Lu Liangwei suddenly thought of something, and her breath hitched.

Seeing her fall silent, Lin Qingyuan assumed that Lu Liangwei had guessed the answer and so she reassured her, “Actually, it’s not that big of a deal…”
“Is there news from the frontier?” Lu Liangwei asked, then shook her head the next second. Impossible—if there was news from the frontier, Long Yang would have told her.
Lin Qingyuan was lost for words. “It’s not about the frontier. Never mind, I’ll just go ahead and tell you so you can come up with a countermeasure.”
When Lu Liangwei heard that it was not related to the frontier, she instantly lost interest again.

Lin Qingyuan continued regardless, “I heard from my father that there have been quite a number of court officials persuading His Majesty to conduct a palace draft to fill up the imperial harem..”
