[Episode 12]

The word 'use'

is not that scary as madam thinks.

While living in this world, one must first be useful

before he can get an opportunity. Am I right?

Young Prince only has this last path left.

Or else, he will have an obscured death.

Listen to me.

Write Young Prince a letter. Write everything that should be said,

not one character less.

What do you want me to write?

The death of Prince Laiyang,

the 20 years of grudges you have towards the past Emperor, His Majesty, and Prince of Chang Lin,

you must write them all clearly.

You cannot let Young Prince be continuously lied upon.

He should know what is the origin of his father's grievances

and her mother's hatred.

Fourth Brother, I beg you to give me your word.

Once I get your life, my revenge for little sister can be counted as done.

Afterwards, that is an entirely different matter.

Your son logically speaking should call me uncle.

If he really have the intention

to serve my Donghai in the future,

why worry that our grand ambition will not be successful?

[Manor of Prince of Chang Lin]

Brother Xun, good morning.


I will say the harsh words first.

I came today mainly to accompany you.

As for how to interrogate Grand Madam Laiyang, I totally do not how it will proceed.

I will not be able to help you regarding that.

Let us go.

Brother Xun. Pingjing.

You two are rare guests. You two coming here this early, may I ask for what matter?

Young Prince probably have heard

that Pingjing and I were instructed by His Majesty to investigate an old palace case.

There are some details that we need to ask Grand Madam Laiyang for.

Hope Young Prince can inform her.

- Ask my mother?
- Yes.

Okay. Please.

Madam! Madam!

- Madam has never answered?
- Yes.

Did Madam never come out since this morning?


Young Prince is here.

Young Prince.

- What is wrong?!
- Young Prince,

Grand Madam did not get up from her bed since this morning. We tried knocking but she did not give any reply.

We do not know what has happened and were just planning to inform you.




[The grudge has been avenged. I should return to Donghai now. Mozi.]

Young Prince.


- Calm down a little!
- Young Prince! Young Prince! Calm down!

Hurry and call for the imperial doctor!

Young Prince...

Calm down a little.

[The grudge has been avenged. I should return to Donghai now. Mozi.]

Can you confirm that she died in the hands of Marquis Mozi?

We are sure. The death note can be faked

but the point of Marquis Mozi's blade cannot.

Which also means...

He found out that the death of Consort Shu was done by Grand Madam Laiyang?

I really do not understand what could be her reason.

Feizhan, Pingjing.


I order you two to personally lead a team

to search the whole Laiyang Manor!

I will abide.

- Brother Xun.
- What is it?

Just search in my behalf. I want to visit Yuanqi.

Urge him to just be at ease and wait for the emperor's decree.


What are you two doing?

Replying to Second Young Master. His Majesty ordered that the corpse of Grand Madam Laiyang

must be autopsied in the palace first before it would be handled.

How is it going to be handled?


- Go now.
- Yes.

Yuanqi. Yuanqi.


Are you alright?


I do not understand. Everything was still well yesterday.

What has happened overnight?

This case has too much entanglements.

I am unable to clearly explain it right now.

The Jin Guards are still in your manor implementing the imperial order given to them.

If we find anything, we surely will report them truthfully.

We will never slander Grand Madam Laiyang.

Relax for now. Do not harm your health.

Implement the imperial order?


Other than searching and confiscating, what else?

This will depend on the result of the search. Do not get anxious.

Pingjing, even if mother did any grave mistake,

she is already dead.

At least allow me to break pots and bury her.

Give her chance to get reincarnated, Pingjing.

I will think a way to let you do that.

- I will beg His Majesty to show mercy.
- Pingjing,

you are the Second Young Master of Chang Lin.

His Majesty will surely listen to your words. I ask you to help me.

- I beg you to help me...
- Don't get agitated.

Second Young Master, Commander Xun asked that you quickly go to the back hall.

I know already.

Yuanqi, get up first. Get up.

- Pingjing...
- Yuanqi,

do not worry. I will think of a way.

Brother Xun.

What is it?

I was busy lately.

It has already been days since I saw the Second Prince and Third Prince.

Come, bring them forward.

Informing Your Lady Highness,

His Majesty calls for you.

He asks that you go to Yangju Palace.

Her Lady Highness Empress is here!

I am here as you ordered. Greetings, Your Majesty.

This matter concerns the inner palace. Empress should also listen.

I will abide.

Come up here.

Your Lady Highness Empress.


Thank you, Your Majesty.

Replying to Your Majesty, I was ordered by you to search the Laiyang Manor.

I discovered that Grand Madam had a secret cabinet in her sleeping chamber.

Inside it, there were indeed a few unimaginable things.

Bring them forward.

Your Majesty, do not be mad.

Based on this item, we can deduce that the hatred of Madam Laiyang

towards Your Majesty and the imperial family has been present for a long time.

In the past, the former emperor was already very merciful to her and her child.

Really never thought...

she would be this impervious to reason!

Your Majesty, Madam Laiyang was able to accidetnally obtain

a chance to harm the House of Chang Lin.

This is the other item that we found in manor.

Your Lady Highness Empress most likely recognize it.

This is the cosmetics box that I gave Heir's Wife.

Your Majesty, you knew about it.

Heir also asked me to investigate this matter. come it ended up in the Laiyang Manor?

Your Lady Highness Empress,

this cosmetics box in my hand

is the box that my wife had been using.

Replying to Your Majesty, Grand Madam Laiyang wrote in her final letter

that 7 years ago, she secretly switched

the cosmetics box that Her Lady Highness Empress gifted Heir's Wife.

When it was delivered to the Prince of Chang Lin's Manor,

it has already become the cosmetics box that heir gave earlier.

These two cosmetics boxes are almost the same.

After 7 years, it is also not surprising if Her Lady Highness Empress did not recognize it.

It is just that the cosmetics box that Pingzhang submitted

the bottom is a bit higher and it has an additional layer within it.

And that layer was spread with Donghai Vermilion Glue.

Donghai Vermilion Glue?

Your Majesty, Donghai Vermilion Glue is a very rare and extremely cold material.

A person chronically exposed to it...

A person chronically exposed to it won't be able to bear any child.


Really an evil woman heart!

Your Majesty, take care of your health.

Your Majesty, please do not get overly worried.

After going through the nursing regimen of Miss Lin Xi of Ji Feng Hall,

the health of Xiao Xue

is already in the process of recovery.

It is good that it can recover.

Replying to Your Majesty, in the letter personally written by Grand Madam Laiyang,

she also narrated the reason for the death of Imperial Consort Shu.

Hand me the letter.


Your Majesty.

Was it her?

I do not know, Your Majesty!

Was it written by her?!

Although it started with 'my son Yuanqi',

it was not signed.

How about the penmanship?

Based on the penmanship, it was indeed written by her.

Replying to Your Majesty, the letter mentioned

that Imperial Consort Shu discovered that Grand Madam Laiyang switched the cosmetics box.

Imperial Consort Shu persuaded her in a discreet manner but she was silenced.

All of these, from the timing, motive, material evidences, and testimonies, have been verified to be true.

From this, we can conclude, that everything

were done alone by Madam Laiyang.

[Qian Tian Court]

Did the Jin Guards sealed up the Laiyang Manor since early this morning?


The corpse of Madam Laiyang was carried out covered in just one cloth.

But no one saw any traces of Xiao Yuanqi. He must have locked himself inside the manor.

What about Xun Feizhan and Xiao Pingjing?

They already returned to the palace to report the findings of their search.

Since the matter cannot be hidden anymore,

then just...let things have a closure.

I never thought that...

my Consort Shu had actually died in the hands of a person she treated as a real sister.

Because of Marquis Mozi came to seek revenge,

we learned that Grand Madam Laiyang was the real mastermind behind the death of Imperial Consort Shu.

Hence, deducing things backwards,

adding the things that were already discovered before,

all the details of this case

can now be finally clearly pieced together.

Never thought that for these past years, she was faking to be sumbissive

but her heart was actually full of enmity.

Good thing, His Majesty was blessed with vast good fortune.

You did not get harmed by her curses.

I know that you are sad, Your Majesty.

But with such a very old case,

being able to find out the truth is also a form of comfort.

You have not yet fully recovered.

If you harm your body just because of anger,

will you not have fulfilled the wishes of those criminals?

What imperial brother said is right. I indeed feel a bit tired.

I do no want to give any decree for the handling of anything today.

You all can leave.

- Your Majesty.
- Your Majesty.

Imperial Brother, do not worry.

I really am alright. I just want to go rest now.

Your Majesty, take care. We all will take our leave.

Your Majesty, I was incapable.

I was not able to discover that such a person existed in the inner palace

and caused Consort Shu to suffer such evil act.

Hope Your Majesty can punish me.


these past years...

you have suffered.

Your Majesty!

Older brother, Grand Madam Laiyang indeed deserved to be punished.

But I believe that Yuanqi is not involved in this.

He currently is being locked up in his manor, living in such a difficult situation, and unable to see His Majesty to voice his complaints.

He also did not beg me for anything. He just hope that I can help him tell His Majesty...


the corpse of Grand Madam Laiyang is still being autopsied.

Yuanqi also has someone keeping watch of him in his manor.

Should you not start thinking about your own matter now?

What 'my own matter'?


Heir, Old Prince is calling for you.


Also, Second Young Master.

Say it.

Did you two know about Xue'er's matter beforehand?


Why did you not tell me earlier?!

Father has a lot of military matters to take care of. We are able to handle our own matter by ourselves.

We do not want father to worry anymore.

Do not want me to worry?

How big is this matter?!

This is as big as the heaven!

Pingzhang, get up.

I did not tell you to get up!

What did that Miss Lin said after examining her?


Lin Xi said that she can try to nurse her.

It is just that it will take some time.

If we could have discovered it earlier and did not take this long, it would have been better.

Pingzhang, stay.

PIngjing, get out.

Father, you indeed should be angry. But you should not vent your anger on older brother!

Get out! Get out!


Where is your older brother?

I rarely see father this angry. He drove me out.

Then is your father scolding your older brother?

This is not his fault.

So right.

- Father--
- I heard that

you transferred the management of the Eastern Courtyard of the Heir to your vice general.


Butler Zhou is already old. I was thinking...


because you knew about your real identity, could it be that you do not want to bare your heart to me anymore?

Father, you had said things too seriously.

Pingzhang, get up first before talking.

Pingzhang, I want to hear you say the truth.


Butler Zhou has a granddaughter which was a servant maid by Xiao Xue's side.

I found out that years ago, she previously broke this box once.

Because of fear, she gave it to Butler Zhou to have it secretly fixed.

The item that was placed inside this box

surely was noticed by Butler Zhou.

But in the end, he sent it back as it is.

Butler Zhou is still an old servant of our house.

He knows...

He knows about the relationship between you and Xue'er.

And knows that even if Xue'er doesn't ever have a child, you will never marry another wife.

There is only one explanation for him doing that.

He does not want you to have any descendants.


Butler Zhou entered our manor with mother.

It is understandable that he will favor Pingjing more.

Even if I do not ask, I already know.

I am sure that he just felt unfair for mother.

If your mother is still alive,

she surely will be the first one to not spare Butler Zhou!

Older brother, how come your complexion looks so bad?

What did father say after making you stay?


He just asked how we were able to find the truth.

If he was just going to ask those, why then must he make me leave?

Pingjing, I am a bit tired. Let us just talk tomorrow.

Brother Pingzhang, it has been long since I saw you like this.

What did father scold you about?

No, it is not that.

I also do not know for what reason

but I am missing mother a lot lately.

Hearing you say that, I also miss her now.

Pingjing's character is very similar to mother.

Always so cheerful.

You can easily make him happy.

But too bad, in this world,

there are always things that will make people feel vexed.

He would know about it sooner or later.

[Prince of Chang Lin's Manor]

Second Young Master.

Was that not Butler Zhou? What is going on?

Old Prince gave orders to escort Butler Zhou

to be put detained in our manor in Hanzhou.


Early this morning, Butler Zhou already got summoned by Old Prince for questioning.

I also do not know why Old Prince got very angry.

Older Brother!

I heard you. Your older brother just woke up.


There are no breakfast today.

Older brother, Butler Zhou got sent by father to Hanzhou to be placed in house arrest.

Do you know why?

What did you say? Butler Zhou?!

What has happened?

Since Pingjing said it was ordered by father, he must have done something wrong.

But Butler Zhou is an old servant that had watched mother grow up.

Everything was still fine yesterday.

What mistake could he have done today that he must be sent in exile and house arrest?

Father must have a reason for his decision.

As juniors, we should not ask more.

Miss Lin is still waiting for you. Quickly go.

For mother's sake, go and clarify things today and tell me about it, okay?


I think that older brother need not ask anymore for you already know what it is. Am I right?

Since yesterday, I have already felt that something is strange.

You and father must be hiding something.

You two know about it and just will not tell me.

No, we are one family.

I cannot bear to be kept in the dark like this.

You must tell it to me clearly today!

If you do not say it clearly, I will not leave.


I am fine with standing.

Around 4 years ago, Butler Zhou

already discovered the Donghai Vermilion Glue that was hidden in the secret layer of the cosmetics box.

Why then did he not say it?

He did not say it...maybe because that matter exactly suited his intentions.

I do not believe it! He doing that is totally unreasonable!

Butler Zhou has worked in our manor for 40 years.

Taking care of mother, taking care of older brother and me.

What would be his motive for doing that?

Do you know that father is an adoptive son of the past emperor?

Of course, I know.

The whole capital knows about that.

Me too.

What did you say?

I am also just an adoptive son.

Mother treated me like I was her own.

But for Butler Zhou,

I am still not mother's real son.

And mother's real son

was not able to become the heir of the House of Chang Lin because of my existence.

That is why...

he did that...

all because of...
