Qi Fan have been six months pregnant and being taken care of the two wet nurses assigned by Patriach Long.Looking at the woman resting in front of him, he can't help but feel disgusted. Discovering all the schemes done by Qi Fan and her parents to Qi Xiuying behind his back, he is helpless at the retribution he is facing. His supposedly wife whom he now love can be engage to another man that is most probably be Jun Wang, as he heard of the frequent visits of the prince to Ying Yue and in Qi Chen's residence.

He can't help but mock himself for being a fool. He loved Qi Fan and is sure of it but discovering that all the instances they have met were all fabric
"Young miss Old Hu came..." Xiao Hua said while looking at Xiuying who busily checking the month's revenue of Ying Yue."Bring him in." Xiuying instructed without removing her attention to the account books."Young miss..." the old man from the slum bowed respectfully."Elder Hu you came is there anything urgent?" Xiuying looks up seeing the man's appearance far from he usually looks like when she visits the slums. He was wearing a decent attire of Ying Yue's employees and with a stern bearing, people who don't know him would assume right away that he have the same position as Manager Ba."One of our people in Fang Fei courtyard found this." He gave the sachet decorated with white lilies. Xiuying sniffed the faint fragrance from it, her expression changed drastically. "Did you know who gave it to Fang Fei?""It was given by Qi Chang's
Qi Lei accompanied Qi Fan in returning to Long Fu, she still can't believe that her father killed Fang Fei and is now in jail she have lost her support. Although their grandfather is still alive he is in critical condition and there's no guarantee that he will wake up soon. If he does by then Qi Bai have already stabilized his position as the heir since her brother is still too young. "Qi Lei... I need your help we can't let uncle take control of Qi Fu... I will lose my support to stabilize my position here in Long Fu!" Qi Fan said while biting her nails as they arrived in her courtyard's receiving area. Qi Lei just stared at his sister before taking steps to leave but he heard another scream from her. "Qi Lei! You ungrateful bastard you shouldn't have been born if father didn't need a heir!" Instead of walking towards Long Fu's gate Qi Lei went to Patriach Long's study and sees the housekeeper guarding it. "May I ask if Patriach Long will have few minutes to spare?"
"Master, Fang Fei was killed by Qi Chang this morning but it was concealed that the first madam died due to illness as for Eleven she is safe and ready for your next task while Qi Bao is currently in critical condition." "Is Qi Bao concious at least?" Xianyao smirked as he listened to the report of One. "Yes." "I see, advise Qi Bai to make sure he will be the one to inherit everything in Qi Fu. Have Qi Fu's physician declare that Qi Chang became insane due to what happened. Have the city peacekeeper detain Qi Chang. About Eleven tell her to leave Qi Fu, her role as second wife of Qi Chang's done." "Master, should we tell Mistress about this?" One asked since both of them are causing problem in Qi and Long Fu, his master should at least show off his efforts to the Mistress. "She doesn't need to know, she'll be mad at me once she knows I laid my hands on her enemies."
Xiuying is currently walking near the slum with her maidservants and guards with baskets full of food from Ying Yue. It has been a habit of hers to visit the slum to provide food on weekly basis though she only go personally once a month. While Xue'er and Xiao Hua are handing out the food to the people, Xiuying had Ping, one of father's shadow guards go with her and rest in the same residence of the old couple. "Thank you for helping me out these past months." Xiuying elegantly bowed to pay respect and thanks the old couple. "You don't need to thank us at all Young Miss as what we did give us benefits to help the children here finally go to school and physician to check their health." The old man stated, few months ago Xiuying went to them to hire them to sabotage the stores of Qi Chang and Long Guanting. Though they just needed to reveal the dirt in Qi Chang's stores they took time to do it so it wouldn't arouse any suspicion. Despite being an asshole it is not surprising t
"I don't mind staying like this forever you know?" Xianyao said after few minutes of not getting a reply from Xiuying. Xiuying can only grit her teeth not looking at the rogue. They have been in this position for almost half an hour and it looks like the man doesn't have any plans of stepping away from her in fact he is enjoying her current predicament. Light knocks were heard from the other side of her office's door. "Young Miss are you there? Madam is already waiting in the private room with Young Master for your lunch." She heard Xiao Hua's voice, she almost forgot about the lunch date she promised her mother to taste the new dishes in Ying Yue's menu. "Hmm they are already waiting Ying'er." Xianyao whispered in her ear sends shivers and she can't help but blush more. "Yes they are, so release me now... please!" She almost shouted but lowered her voice for Xiao Hua's still outside waitin
"No no no no, impossible!" "Why her of all people?!" "Guanting won't leave me right? Yes he won't he loves me that he even hired someone to kill that bitch!" Qi Fan keeps on murmuring after waking up while walking back and forth, seeing this the servants around her didn't dare disturb their young madam. She remembered her conversation with her husband after the banquet. "Husband... you won't leave me right?" Qi Fan hug Guanting who was about to leave from behind. They just returned from the banquet and her husband accompanied her till the receiving room of her courtyard. "Did you... did you know about this from the start?" Hearing Guanting's question she was startled. She hugs him tightly before faintly answering with a no. It was almost a whisper that Guanting won't hear it if not for their current position. Guanting removed her arms around his waist and faced Qi Fan. He gently c.a.r.e.s.s her hair before tucking the strands on her ch
The news about Qi Xiuying being Ying Yue's musician spreads out in the capital right after the banquet that even those in the streets can almost re-tell what happened during their performance. Even though she is now known as one of the ladies that excels in arts, Xiuying still play songs in Ying Yue though it was reduced to once a week and can be seen talking with the children and elders passing by their residence and establishments earning more admirers. However there was no line of proposals in their residence as along with the news of her being an expert musician, the news of her being pursue by Jun Wang spreads out thus scaring the families who wants Xiuying to be married to their sons. No one wants to provoke the war lord of Great Yan. "Ying'er why don't you rest for a bit you have been helping out in our family businesses aside from managing Ying Yue..." Xi Hui nags the subject of the news seeing her daughter yawning while reading the account books of Ying Yue.
Princess Xiang looks at Xiuying, the latter was grateful for the princess checking with her if it is alright to announce her name. She lightly nod her head earning a smile from the princess. Princess Xiang turn back facing the imperial family and spoke two words... "Qi Xiuying..." Upon hearing the name the ladies especially the ones gossiping about the known hidden daughter of Qi Chen, are all flabbergasted and cannot help but spill out their thoughts. "Did Princess Xiang say that woman's name is Qi Xiuying?!" "Oh my! Maybe it is someone that have the same name right?" "Is Princess Xiang joking? If she is then that is the best joke I have heard!
