Su Qing'e was scared, and her knees started to wobble when Master Liu said her name.
Sweats dripped down her face, and her face became even paler.
The Prince was looking at her, and she nervously played with the ribbon on her dress.

The Prince smiled.
He has heard of Su Qing'e before.
The rumors said she could make a man stay up all night, and he didn't know if it was true or not.
He wanted to ask, but it was not the right time; instead, he asked, “Are you Su Qing'e?”

“Yes, I am,” Su Qing'e's mind was full of the place where they buried Master Li.
She always thought someone would find it, and her voice trembled with fear.

The Prince pointed at himself to his face when he saw her tremble, “Am I that scary?”

“Of course not, Your Highness.
Su Qing'e is small-minded and has never seen the larger world before.”

The Prince was busy, too, and he didn't want to announce publicly that he was at a place like this.
Although Master Liu was investigating the case, he didn't have the power to interrogate the Prince.
The Prince had enough fun, and it was about time to go back too; he stood up and said, “It's getting late, and I need to head back.
Work on the case and end it soon.”

“Yes, Your Highness.” Master Liu's face piled with smiles as he prayed for the Prince to leave so he could be more relaxed.

The Madam couldn't stop the Prince from leaving even if she wanted to.
She called out after Master Liu, “Farewell, Your Highness.”

Everyone watched the Prince leave, and Master Liu knew exactly what he meant; the Prince didn't want them to spread the news that he was at a brothel.
First, Master Liu couldn't investigate the Oiran because she didn't have the time to commit the crime, and looking into her meant looking into the Prince too.
Then, he warned everyone present there, he cleared his throat and roared, “Listen to me carefully, all of you! No one is going to tell anyone that the Prince was here today; otherwise, be careful with your heads!”

They all exchanged glances with each other, and no one dared to say anything.
They quickly locked their lips and told themselves never to say a word about this.
The Madam saw her helper had left, she changed her attitude and flattered, “Master Liu, how do you want to investigate the case?”

“Since no one else took part in it, I will take Su Qing'e back first.” Master Liu didn't want to make a scene at the Manhong House after the Prince showed himself, but he would also be in trouble if he didn't find Master Li.
Whether Su Qing'e committed the crime or not, he had to take her back for interrogation either way.

Su Qing'e heard she was going back to the office with him, she quickly hid and rambled, “No, I don't want to go to the jail, no…” Before she could finish her sentence, Master Liu's subordinates sealed her mouth smartly.

Su Qing'e was taken away silently, and the soldiers soon left too.
The Madam couldn't help but sigh, “What kind of thing is this? It's either people finding troubles or troubles finding them! How unlucky!” Su Qing'e was the second most popular prostitute besides the most popular one.
Although not all officials and noblemen fought over her, she was always a reliable person.
Su Qing'e's name was famous in this business, and it was a huge loss to the Manhong House.
