After days of attentive care and nursing, Felicia returned to her normal state before the Hair-pinning

Ceremony. It was her

coming-of-age ceremony and her face was flawless, without any trace of a scar. If it weren't for the

Skin-smoothing Cream from

Hailey, there would still be many scars on Felicia's face, even after she was completely detoxified.

According to the rituals, Felicia's Hair-pinning Ceremony wasn't allowed to be fancier than Harper's

ceremony, as Harper was the

daughter of Charles' first wife. But since Felicia had engaged to Hansen and Sue was in charge of all

the affairs of the Chu Clan

mansion, her ceremony was a grand endeavor. Many ladies had come to congratulate her.

"My Lady, aren't you going to attend the ceremony today?" Anabel asked while fanning Harper. It was

already hot in June.

Harper was devouring the iced watermelon. She flipped the history book wearily and said, "Why should

I go there? Felicia is the

linchpin today. If I attend the ceremony and steal her thunder, I will be in trouble again."

"But are you not afraid that Lady Sue might torment you since you are here having your illness as an

excuse?" Anabel knitted

her eyebrows in worry. Everyone was aware that Sue despised Harper. Although she promised that

she wouldn't mess with

Harper, it had only been for the sake of Mavis. She had done a lot of nasty things to get Harper into


"No, she won't. Today is a big day for her precious daughter. She wouldn't want me to go out. My

illness was what she had

wished for. Moreover, I have sent a gift for my sister's coming-of-age ceremony. So no one can say

anything bad about me,"

Harper said. "The iced watermelon tastes good. Get some for Enya and Elsie as well." The soft and

gentle voice of Harper

sounded as sweet as honey. Anabel nodded and took out a plate of watermelon.

There was a shady glint in Harper's eyes as her mind raced with thoughts. 'Felicia's wedding with

Hansen will be discussed soon

after her coming-of-age ceremony. Yvonne, you don't have much time left. If you don't seize the right

opportunity, you will die!'

Sue had arranged everything for the ceremony without bothering Harper as she wanted the ceremony

to progress without any hassle. The daughters of the other concubines were driven back to the

backyard when they showed up at the ceremony, as Sue didn't want anyone to steal Felicia's spotlight.

Sue was happy about Harper's illness. Kate, Prince Kevin's wife, also attended Felicia's Hair-pinning

Ceremony with a big gift to establish how much she valued her future daughter-in-law. Sue was

grinning from ear to ear and happily chatting with Kate. They had decided that it was time for Felicia

and Hansen to get married as Felicia was officially an adult. "Mother, Your Highnesses, Felicia,"

Yvonne said with a pitiful look as she broke in and knelt down in front of everyone.

"Yvonne, what are you doing? Don't you know that it's disrespectful to break in like this?" Sue stood up

and yelled at Yvonne. "Mother, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have done that. But..." Yvonne cast an accusing

glance at Hansen. "Mother, I am pregnant with His Highness's child." Her words were like a heavy

stone that was thrown into a quiet lake, stirring up a huge wave. Sue's face turned pale as if she had

received an unexpected slap in her face. "What the hell are you talking about?" Sue gritted her teeth.

"Mother, I know that you dote on Felicia. But I'm not asking for much. I only want to stay by his

Highness's side, in my rightful

position. Now that I'm pregnant, I hope that Mother and Your Highness would allow me to stay at His

Highness's side, and give

me the right to take care of him," Yvonne cried bitterly. She had been pregnant for more than a month.

If Sue had found out that

she was pregnant, she would have definitely killed her to spare her two daughters from humiliation and

protect their promising


"Bullshit! What the hell are you talking about? How could you have His Highness's child?" Sue wanted

to tear Yvonne's mouth

apart. How dare she say such blatant words during Felicia's Hair-pinning Ceremony in order to cling to

the bigwigs! She had

gone to the extent of lying about her pregnancy with his Highness's child. "Your Highness, please say

something. I've been pregnant for more than a month. It's your child and you know it." Yvonne was

panicking. She walked towards Hansen, held onto his leg. "Your Highness, you said that you would

take care of me." Hansen's face turned red with embarrassment. After all, there were a lot of guests

waiting outside at the Hair-pinning Ceremony of his fiancee. If they got to know that he had slept with

his fiancee's sister before marriage and got her pregnant, it would be a huge humiliation for him.

"Are you serious?" Kate asked in shock. 'Our mansion hasn't seen a child for a long time. If the child is

really Hansen's, he can

take her as his concubine, ' she thought.

"Your Highness, it's true. A month ago, when His Highness came to our mansion, we ran into each

other. His Highness..."

Yvonne trailed off. "He had sex with me and said that he would take the responsibility." Tears streamed

down Yvonne's face.

Kate looked at her son and then at Yvonne.

"Is she telling the truth, Hansen?"

Hansen averted his gaze away from his mother as he was embarrassed and didn't know how to

answer. Kate knew her son well.

The mere look on his face was enough for her to believe Yvonne's words.

"Bitch!" Felicia couldn't contain her anger as she rushed towards Yvonne and slapped her in the face.

"Bitch, how you dare you

seduce His Highness! I'll beat you to death!" She was shaking with fury and had meant every single


"Felicia!" Sue rushed to stop Felicia. It was normal for a man to have several concubines; Hansen was

no exception, especially

when he belonged to a noble clan. In the future, he would have more women around him. If Felicia

couldn't bear the fact that

Yvonne was Hansen's woman, she would have a hard time in the future.

Kate frowned. She was unhappy with Felicia's reaction. Virtue was the most important trait that she

expected from her daughter-

in-law. If she was jealous of her own sister, she would undoubtedly be more vicious to other women.

"Your Highnesses, please forgive Felicia. Everything happened so quickly and she's having a hard time

to process it," Sue

explained as she smiled at them. Her heart was hurting after she found the truth, but she had to

pretend that she was generous.

"What happened?" Harper asked as she walked in gracefully, looking majestic and charming.

When Sue saw Harper come in, she felt that things were going to take a wrong turn. "Harper, why are

you here?" she asked.
