Rebirth of the Phoenix Princess novel Chapter 616

Heading outside the Jin city?

Yun Shang couldn't help but frown, with puzzlement evident in her eyes. Why was he going out of the city? Yun Shang thought it over and suddenly stood up. She slapped on the armrest and said, "I see! It's the funeral group of Lady Liu!"

As soon as she finished speaking, Qian Zhuo whispered in Yun Shang's ear. She told Yun Shang that the secret guard who went to the Mansion of the Liu clan to investigate came back.

Yun Shang immediately asked the secret guard to come and asked him. The secret guard answered in a hurry, "Your Highness, I was ordered to find lady Liu's personal servant in her mansion, but I found her body lying in a remote room in the mansion."

The dead body of Lady Liu was still in the room, but who was in the coffin of the funeral group?

Yun Shang's heart skipped a beat as she hurried to speak to Lord Hua Guo and Liu Ming, "Mr. Liu, gather the imperial army and lead them to check on the Mansion of the Liu clan while grandfather goes to stop the funeral procession."

Lord Hua Guo and Liu Ming immediately said yes and hurried out of the flower house.

Yun Shang's face was pale. Her heart was beating very fast. After a moment of silence, she stood up and said, "no, I have to go and have a look as well." Hearing her words, Lady Hua Guo immediately held Yun Shang by the arm and said, "everyone can go except you. You're pregnant now. It's not safe for you to go. Don't worry. Since things have gone this far, your grandpa will surely bring Qingyan back safely."

Yun Shang had no choice but to sit down again. After a while, Lady Hua Guo suddenly couldn't sit still. She stood up and said to Yun Shang, "I have to go to the palace now. I need someone to go to the Empress' palace and report the situation to her."

Yun Shang thought it for a while and agreed. If the empress knew nothing about it, she would surely hate the Prince Rui's mansion more.

There were only Yun Shang and the servants in the garden house after that.

Qian Zhuo bent down and said to Yun Shang in a low and gentle voice, "there's no charcoal furnace in the flower house. You'd better go back to the yard and wait, your highness."

Yun Shang shook her head. "There will be all kinds of news coming back and forth today, and a lot of things to deal with. I will just wait in the garden hall."

Qian Zhuo wanted to say something, but she knew she couldn't persuade Yun Shang. So she asked a maid to prepare charcoal fire stove and send it to the flower hall. There was also a pot of hot fruit tea for Yun Shang for her to warm up a little.

Yun Shang found her hands in the sleeves clenched so tightly that she had already hurt herself. She loosened her hands, took the cup from the maid, and drank the tea absentmindedly. After having a cup of tea, she stood up again and murmured, "no, I'm still a little uneasy. I have to go and see."

Seeing Yun Shang so anxious like this, Qian Zhuo gave up persuading her. She just asked the servants to prepare a carriage for them and put a thick cushion in it. Then she ordered over a hundred hidden guards to follow them and help Yun Shang into the carriage.
