Sorry for being slow. I will try to pick up the pace this week.
After leaving the couple, Lin Shan and Lian Feng went on the path towards the Capital.
It had already been more than a month since their departure. Within a month, those who used to back up Du Ye were all removed from their positions; regardless of how low or high their rankings were.

Lin Shan was curious and also took a look. But instantly, her expression stiffened.

They found out that although Song Xian was on the list, the Imperial court ruled that he was too old and had accomplished a lot for the country and decided to spare his life. They only took away his title and his residence. Song Xian was ordered to retire and no longer participate in any political matters.
