The sky gradually darkened. Min turned around and nimbly jumped into the Second Prince's residence. He followed the wall and walked quickly and silently until he arrived outside a room. He stopped and used his fingers to prick a hole in the thin layer of window paper, forgetting about it. This window coincides with the garden in the Residence of Prime Minister, where Min can hide himself in the garden when he bends down.

The few people inside the room had no idea that someone was listening in on them from outside. The Second Prince was lying comfortably in the arms of a woman, enjoying the massage of a woman. On the other side of him was a woman, who was currently helping him peel grapes, sending them into the mouth of the Second Prince. On the other side was the steward of the Second Prince's residence.

If His Highness the crown prince wants to ascend to the throne, then the person blocking his way must be eliminated. Now that the emperor is imprisoned, only you and the fourth prince are left with a path to prevent his ascension to the throne. The fourth prince still has the concubine and the powerful family behind her, so Your Highness, I'm afraid that His Highness the crown prince will target you in the next step.

The Second Prince, however, didn't seem to mind. He continued to play around with his two concubines.

"Your Highness!" You can't underestimate him. His Highness has already taken control of the capital city. We are all his turtles in a jar. Do you really want him to catch one and see us take control of the turtles? At that time, the consequences will be unimaginable, Your Highness! " The butler looked at the Second Prince, who did not realize the danger in front of him, and became anxious.

Looking at the anxious butler, the Second Prince laughed and finally got up from his concubine's embrace and spoke lazily.

Why are you so worried, butler? So what if Mo Ruhai has control of the Jing'an? With the authority of the army, even if Mo Ruhai had the ability, he would not be able to do anything to Gu Gou. If he truly pisses Gu Gou off, he would bring his men to occupy the entire city.

Although that is the case, His Highness the Crown Prince is not a person that is easy to provoke, not to mention that Your Highness' troops are far away in Xiling, if Your Highness were to suddenly attack us, it would be too late for you to deploy troops from Xiling, as Xiling is a major military town of Falling Moon Country. Not to mention how our people would think of you, if you were to personally send troops here, the other countries might directly lead their troops to attack our country.

"Your Highness, you must be very careful. When the Emperor handed over the military authority to you, he used it to protect the country. Unless it's an emergency, you mustn't mobilize the soldiers of the West Tomb."

When the Second Prince heard the butler's words, he pondered for a moment. He felt that what the butler said made sense and was finally aware of the seriousness of the situation. He waved his hand, signaling his two concubines to go out and wait for them to go out before speaking.

"Then, according to the steward, what should I do?"

"I can't transfer troops on my own, Father is now imprisoned by Mo Ruhai, there is no one left to help me anymore."

When the butler heard that the Second Prince was finally starting to worry, he secretly heaved a sigh of relief. After thinking for a while, he replied.

"Your Highness, don't worry. Your servant has a plan."

"What is it?" "Hurry up and tell me." The Second Prince could not wait any longer. At this moment, sounds came from outside the window.

"Who is it!" The butler quickly walked to the window and pulled it open. A cold wind blew in from the window, and the sound of a cat broke the silence.

"Who is it?" The Second Prince hurriedly got off the bed and was about to go to the window to see what was going on when the housekeeper suddenly closed the window and said, "There's no one else but a wild cat. This servant is too nervous."

"The wind outside is too strong, don't blow his majesty's body away." The butler pushed the Second Prince back onto the bed.

"Your Highness should return to bed quickly."

The Second Prince was a bit confused, but he did not think too much about it. He continued to ask, "Butler, you just mentioned that you have a way. Quickly tell it to me."

"Your Highness, it's like this, this servant had just considered for a moment, since we don't have any strength to rely on right now, we should find a backer."

"Support?" The Second Prince raised his eyebrows.

"Yes, Your Highness. What do you think His Highness is doing all this for?"

"Father's position?" The butler smiled and shook his head.

"Yes, but not all of them. Does Your Highness know why His Highness has imprisoned the Qu Residence as well?"

"This matter …" The Second Prince frowned and thought for a moment. "I heard from Little Yu that it seemed to be for a woman of some name."

"Your highness is right, the crown prince did it for a girl, and this woman is none other than the young lady Qu Dance from Qu Mansion."

"Dance? I heard that she was a fool? How could Mo Ruhai do this for a fool? "

"Qu family's daughter is indeed a fool, but for some reason, she recovered back to normal a few days ago. What's even more surprising is that she actually acknowledged the heaven and earth as husband and wife with the young master of Qianji Tower, Feng Qianlou, and the previous engagement between the crown prince and this woman really shamed the crown prince. Thus, a few days ago, the crown prince sent his men to the Qu family's residence and ordered them to stay in the palace for a period of time, and this servant thought that the crown prince wanted to cancel the marriage between the two of them."

His gaze locked onto the butler's eyes. "How do you know so much about Mo Ruhai?"

The butler did not evade the second prince's gaze and revealed an awkward smile.

"This... Your Highness, this servant said not to be angry, this servant is old friends with Xiao Cui in the rear garden, and Xiao Cui has an older sister working in the east palace, and you know about the other wives, they usually chat about the master's matters when they have nothing to do, the correspondence between Xiao Cui and her elder sister is for me to send them, so this servant naturally knows more about these matters.

Only after hearing the butler's honest explanation did the Second Prince let go of the doubts in his heart. After thinking carefully about how the butler had followed him for so many years, it was impossible that he did not have any ulterior motives, so he relaxed.

"Haha, good kid, you actually hid it from me for so long. You really hide your strength well!" It's all thanks to you... "Xiao Cui, only then do we know so much about Mo Ruhai's matters."
