n they heard this. Some of them were worried about the master, while others were worried about their future.

Madam Lis vision turned dark. She secretly bit the tip of her tongue until it bled to prevent herself from fainting.

She muttered to herself, “How… How can this be? Grand Tutor Zhao is the crown princes mentor, and Lord Hong is also a member of the crown princes faction…”

Without questioning the servant girl further, she walked past her and headed for the front courtyard.

At this moment, the main doors of the Bulwark Duke Residence opened.

Emperor Chongans personal eunuch, Eunuch Li, entered first and gestured to someone behind him.

Immediately, a few officers carried in two corpses.

Following closely behind was the crown prince, Song Jingchen. His eyes were tightly shut, and one couldnt be certain if he was still alive. Song Jingchen was still wearing the same red clothes as the day before.

His red clothes were dyed dark red with blood, and his face was pallid. He was being carried into the residence like a rag doll.

When Madam Li arrived at the front yard and witnessed this scene, she burst into tears and fell to the ground.

“Ahem.” Eunuch Li cleared his throat to regain Madam Lis attention before saying, “Duchess, my condolences. Im here on His Majestys orders to announce the imperial edict. Please get everyone in the residence to come out and receive it!”

Madam Lee blinked to clear her vision and tried to say something.

However, when she opened her mouth, she did not utter a sound. Uncle Yang, the loyal servant who had returned with the corpses, could only endure his grief and instruct someone to make the arrangements.

Shen Yijia swallowed the last pastry and burped.

She looked at the remaining dried fruits with pity. She was thinking about using something to pack them up.

An anxious voice came from outside. “Come quickly, a eunuch from the imperial palace is here to announce the imperial edict. Everyone, go to the front hall and wait!”

This was followed by the sound of people moving.

Shen Yijia paused and smacked her forehead. She was so focused on eating, she almost forgot that her husband had been caught.

“Theres also the Shen family. Hmph.” she thought.
