The kids in the yard burst into tears when they saw Wu Yunling acting erratically. The children's hysterics reached the front hall, and the adults, who came running.

The two adults to reach the yard first, were the Grand Preceptor, Wu Ci, and Yun Yajun. They were shocked, and their faces did not hide it well. The sight of Wu Yunling rending her dress, which was already in tatters and exposed much of her skin, including her shoulders, was beyond what they had imagined might have happened.

The General and the Grand Preceptor were both capable of juggling tense situations, negotiating, waging war and leading. They paled to deathly white standing before this horrific display. Neither leader of men knew what to do or say. Wu Yunling was ruined, and a maiden with a destroyed reputation had no prospects of having suitors or being married.

"What?" The Grand Preceptor, Wu Ci waved his arms as he tried to find the words, "What has happened here? My baby! What?" Wu Ci walked up to Wu Yunling; he grabbed at her arms to try to prevent her from continuing. At that moment, she was even stronger than him, an adult male, so he knocked her out. She fell into his arms, silent and unmoving.

Yun Canglan saw Yun Yajun and immediately dashed to him, clinging to his arms, sobbing, "Dad, I was so scared, Wu Yunling went insane out of the blue. She was ripping and clawing at Liuyun, and tore his clothes off. She tried to come after me next." Yun was crying loudly, choking in the air and gasping, while Yun played the part of the injured party. He silently reasoned, 'I told you to watch it, or I would fix you!'

The Grand Preceptor was a kung fu master, Yun Canglan had found out.

Yun Canglan was loved and genuinely cherished by his father on the one hand, while on the other hand, Yun Yajun felt shame that he had a cowardly son.

As the other guests and dignitaries reached the backyard, they witnessed the awkward moment of father embraced by his son, Yun Canglan who was crying so hard he was choking. They wagged their heads, looking down on Yun Canglan's behavior while feeling embarrassment for such a heroic father.

Yun Yajun put his son on the ground and headed to Huo Liuyun. Standing before the Crown Prince, he saluted, "Please forgive my negligence, My Crown Prince. I am so very sorry this frightening experience occurred My Crown Prince." He cupped one fist in the other hand as he finished.

Huo Liuyun took Yun Yajun's hand absently, he shook it slowly, "It's not your fault, General. You could not have foreseen such a bizarre occurrence."

Wu Ci knelt in front of the Crown Prince, Huo

ace burned with humiliation and fury; his eyes were dark and sinister looking as he screamed, "Yun Canglan, go to the ancestral hall now and kneel! You are to stay there, and may not eat for the day!"

Yun Canglan had never heard his father yell quite like that and grew more apprehensive, "Dad, today is my sixth birthday. What are you so angry about?"

Huo Liuyun interceded, hoping to smooth the way, "General Yun, Canglan is right, This is his birthday today. Everyone has come to celebrate his birth. You would look like a poor host; if you sent Canglan to the ancestral hall."

"Indeed, General Yun. His Royal Highness Yun is only a child of six." Wu Ci also spoke up for Yun Canglan.

"The Grand Preceptor is right, General Yun, please calm down. His Royal Highness is just a naughty child." The dignitaries and guests who were worldly-wise saw the benefits of agreeing with the Crown Prince and the Grand Preceptor.

Yun Canglan remained safely ensconced behind the Crown Prince, but with so many defenders, Yun raised his head proudly.

Yun Yajun remained infuriated about Yun Canglan's behavior, but the voices of reason were right, it would be highly inappropriate to punish him in front of so many others and during a celebration. He pierced Yun Canglan with a narrow threatening gaze, "Bastard, we will discuss this later." He then smiled at the crowd, "Everyone, please, follow me to the front hall. The shadow play will begin presently."

The joyful exclamations of the children rang through the halls as they raced back to the hall, forgotten was the incident that just happened. Wu Ci excused himself carrying his daughter gingerly away in his arms.

From there on out, Yun Canglan and Wu Yunling were bitter enemies.
