Yun Ruofeng shook his head. “Hold on, I think there’s something amiss with this matter.”


“What do you mean?” Yun Ling was bewildered.


“Lanshan is not a normal person. How could she let others find her nest?”


“But Prince Hao is also not someone we can easily hoodwink.” Yun Ling reminded.


The look in Yun Ruofeng’s eyes changed for a split second, after which his mouth spread into a faint smile. “This show is getting more and more exciting.”


“Your Highness, now that Prime Minister Wen’s matter is already exposed, there’s nothing else that can threaten Hua Ziqing. Do we need to change our plan?” Yun Ling asked.


Yun Ruofeng tapped the table softly. “No need; it’s not time yet.”


“Your Highness, do you still believe that the cloaked man can bring Princess Consort Yun back?” A speck of incredulity was present in Yun Ling’s gaze.


Yun Ruofeng’s smile deepened. “Although this person’s whereabouts are mysterious, he is indeed not to be reckoned with. Besides, the mastermind behind the scenes has been hiding themselves very well. I would like to see if he can succeed.”


“Your Highness, then regarding Prime Minister Wen…?” Yun Ling consulted him.


Yun Ruofeng’s expression turned ice-cold. “Make him cough the item out, otherwise, show him what we’re made of.”


“Quickly instruct those in Beimin to start acting. I can’t wait to see Beimin’s Empress Dowager’s performance.” A calculative look spread across his face.


Yun Ling nodded. “Your Highness, aren’t you afraid that she is too insane and will hurt…”


“My Lan-er is not someone who would get tricked so easily. We’ll just have to watch from the side and reap the benefits as the third party.” Yun Ruofeng stated nonchalantly.


Yun Ling pondered for a bit. “Does Your Highness plan to continue the collaboration with Hua Ziqing?”


“Of course; I have little doubt that he will escape his current predicament soon. However, I’m more interested in how Hua Zirong plans to resolve Xiliu’s current state.” Yun Ruofeng’s eyes glinted with an expectant look.


On the other hand, Yun Ling was still skeptical. Will everything really go so smoothly?


Yun Ruofeng immersed in his own thoughts. Lan-er… Lan-er, you will return to my side very soon. No one will take you away from me anymore.


A deranged smile slowly warped his expression, one that would’ve sent a chill down the spine of anyone who saw it.


Yun Ling understood that his master’s feelings for Su Xi-er had escalated to the point of obsession, and he wasn’t sure whether it was a good or bad thing for this to continue.


A knock sounded, and Wu Yong walked in.


“Your Highness, we received some secret information: Nanzhao’s Emperor is sick.”


Yun Ruofeng’s smile spread even wider. The heavens are really on my side. Lan-er, you and I are destined to be together, and nobody can change that.


“Continue the surveillance, and sneak into the imperial palace to investigate further if necessary.”


Wu Yong nodded and left the room.


“Your Highness, this is a good chance for us to counterattack.” Yun Ling was delighted.


Yun Ruofeng smiled faintly. “Wait.”


Although Yun Ling didn’t understand why Yun Ruofeng didn’t want to push their advantage, he could tell that the latter had already formulated a plan,and didn’t inquire any further.


However, Yun Ruofeng was completely oblivious that this piece of information was nothing but bait designed for him.


When someone was too eager for success, even the most intelligent person would have their thoughts clouded. Yun Ruofeng was one such person; too eager to obtain Ning Rulan and the world.
