Yu Yunxi quickly helped Su Jingrou up and said, “So you’re the Third Prince’s side consort. There’s no need to be so polite.”

At this time, Yu Yunxi noticed Su Jingrou’s bulging belly, and she asked in surprise, “You’re pregnant?”

Su Jingrou touched her belly, and her gaze was very gentle as she said, “Yes,

I’m almost five months pregnant.”

“Congratulations,” Yu Yunxi said sincerely. However, she could not help but feel a little complicated. For most princes, the pregnancy of their wives and consorts was an important matter in the imperial family. However, nothing was said about Su Jingrou’s pregnancy. With this, one could see the Third Prince’s value in the eye of the Emperor.

When Yu Yunxi saw that Su Jingrou was shivering slightly, she hurriedly supported the latter and said, “Let’s go in first.”

“Princess Regent, the Third Prince…”

“Everything will be fine. He just needs to rest,” Yu Yunxi said reassuringly. Then, she turned to Feng Yili and said, “Feng… Prince Regent, you should go and have a look at the Third Prince. I’ll accompany Jingrou.”

Initially, Yu Yunnxi wanted to address Feng Yili by his name. However, seeing that there were so many people, she changed the way she addressed him to avoid shocking the others.

Feng Yili nodded obediently. “Alright, Princess Consort.”

Su Jingrou looked at Feng Yili’s departing figure and could not help but say with a sigh, “The Prince Regent and the Princess Regent really have a good relationship.”

Yu Yunxi helped Su Jingrou to sit down before she said seriously, “You’re the Third Prince’s consort. You can just address me and the Prince Regent as Ninth

Imperial Aunt and Ninth Imperial Uncle. You don’t have to be so reserved.”

“I’m just a consort. It’s not appropriate for me to address you as such,” Su Jingrou said nervously.

“Alright, alright. If you don’t want to address me as Ninth Imperial Aunt, you can address me as Yunxi. We’re about the same age after all,” Yu Yunxi said. “This, this is even more inappropriate,” Su Jingrou said, even more nervous than before.

“It’s fine. Moreover, it’s just the two of us now. Just listen to me. Otherwise, I’ll be angry,” Yu Yunxi said, pretending to be stern.

Su Jingrou hesitated for a moment before she nodded. “Alright, Yunxi.” Su Jingrou’s eyes were clear. She seemed very innocent and sensible, which aroused a protective feeling in Yu Yunxi’s heart.

Seeing that Su Jingrou was worried, Yu Yunxi said reassuringly, “Don’t worry about the Third Prince. The Prince Regent saved him from the assassins, and I’ve already treated him. His life is not in danger.”

“W-why would someone try to assassinate him? He doesn’t compete for anything. Why would someone do such a thing?” Su Jingrou asked as tears welled up in her eyes.

“Jingrou, does the Third Prince have any enemies that you know of?” Yu Yunxi asked solemnly as she held Su Jingrou’s hand.

“No, he doesn’t have any enemies. He’s such a good person. Although he’s not favored by the Emperor like the other princes, he’s really diligent…” Su Jingrou said as tears streamed down her face. Clearly, she was the type to cry easily.

Yu Yunxi sighed lightly before she said, “Don’t worry. We’ll definitely investigate this matter.”

After a moment, Yu Yunxi suddenly asked, “Can I have a look at the Third Prince’s study?”

“Of course,” Su Jingrou said with a nod.

“You agreed so quickly?” Yu Yunxi was slightly surprised. She wanted to see if she could find the letter in Feng Wei’an’s study. She assumed it would not be so easy to enter Feng Wei’an’s study so she was rather surprised that Su Jingrou agreed so readily.

Seeing the surprised expression on Yu Yunxi’s face, Su Jingrou said, embarrassed, “Although I came from a humble background, I’ve known His Royal Highness for many years. He’s always doted on me, and he allows me to enter his study as I please. Princess… Yunxi, do you plan to look for clues in his study?”

Although Su Jingrou seemed naive, it seemed like she was quite quick-witted.

Yu Yunxi nodded. “Yes.”

“I’ll lead you there.”

Su Jingrou did not waste time after confirming that Yu Yunxi wanted to look for clues. She rose to her feet immediately and led Yu Yunxi to the study.

Seeing how fast Su Jingrou was moving, Yu Yunxi said, slightly worried,

“Jingrou, be careful. You’re pregnant after all…”

“It’s fine, it’s fine. The Third Prince’s matter is more important,” Su Jingrou said.

Soon, they arrived at the study. When Su Jingrou pushed the door open, Yu Yunxi saw rows and rows of books that were neatly arranged. Clearly, Feng Wei’an liked reading.

“Where does the Third Prince usually keep his letters?” Yu Yunxi asked, turning around to look at Su Jingrou.

Su Jingrou walked toward a shelf and said, “Here. When I came to deliver tea to him, I remember seeing him placing important letters here.”

At this time, Yu Yunxi’s attention was caught by the tea set on the table. She picked up one of the teacups and said, “Jingrou, this teacup is so unique.”

Su Jingrou smiled. “Do you think this tea set is very beautiful as well? The Third Prince likes it a lot and often uses it…

“Where did this tea set come from?” Yu Yunxi asked as her eyes flashed.

“Do you want to buy this tea set, Yunxi? However, I think you’ll be able to buy it. It was given to the Third Prince by his close friend,” Su Jingrou said with a faint smile.

‘A close friend?’ Yu Yunxi frowned, and her expression was complicated.

She recognized this tea set. Not only that, but she also knew that it was the only one in the world. She had seen it in her godfather’s study four years ago. Her godfather cherished the tea set a lot and could not bear to use it. Later on, she discovered that it was missing from her godfather’s study so she had asked her godfather about it. At that time, her godfather had said that he had given it to a friend.

‘Is the Third Prince the friend that Godfather mentioned?’

Yu Yunxi was very certain that this tea set was the one in her godfather’s study.

Previously, there was a scratch at the bottom of one of the teacups. It was caused by the little bun. Although her godfather was distressed, he could not bear to blame the little bun at that time. And now, after checking, she saw a similar scratch at the bottom of one of the teacups.

“Jingrou, do you know who’s the Third Prince’s friend?” Yu Yunxi asked.

“I don’t know. I heard that his friend rarely came to the capital. However, they have a really good relationship, and they’re in correspondence all year round,”

Su Jingrou replied seriously.

“I see.”

Then, Su Jingrou found a letter and hurriedly handed it to Yu Yunxi, saying, “I think the Third Prince received this letter today. Please have a look and see if it’s important.”
