A man about 60 years old was sitting in the principal seat of the antechamber at the General's home. Despite his gray hair, he was hale, hearty and steadily drank his tea. A smile shone on his face; that spoke of the energy and vitality he possessed.

Yun Yajun and Lin Wan'er sat on either side, just staring with joy at this old man.

Yun Canglan raced into the antechamber. Her melodic voice was ringing through the halls before she was near.

"Grandfather, grandfather! Where are you?"

Hearing her happy shouts, the old man burst into laughter, standing to scoop her up into his arms, as Yun Canglan flung herself forward.

"Brat, gently now, or you will hurt me."

"Grandfather, thank heavens, you are finally home." Yun Canglan nuzzled into Yun He's chest, feeling loved and safe.

Yun He grinned. "Canglan, child, did you miss me?"

It was a harmonious family reunion without the servants who were given time off.

Tilting her head, Yun Canglan pouted, "No, I didn't. I am used to it since you leave me alone every time you go away traveling."

Grandfather's delighted cackling as he gently patted Yun Canglan's head made Yun Canglan smile before even hearing his promise, "I'll take you with me next time. Now, I have brought something back from the Feng Kingdom for you."

Yun He had Yun Canglan on his lap and carefully pulled a parcel out, and held it in front of her as if it was a great treasure.

Yun Yajun frowned, "Father, you mustn't give her such gifts, you will spoil her, and she has gone too far with her mischief lately."

Lin Wan'er nodded and added, "Father, you do not need to go to such expense. You return so rarely that is a treasured gift as is."

Yun He took the gift from the parcel and smiled wider, "I love my only granddaughter dearly, so what if I want to give her everything and spoil her."

Yun Canglan's smile fell when she saw a drum-shaped rattle in Yun He's hand, 'Aw, come on! I'm almost 30 years old here, and he brings this rat

down as she matures and become more reserved when she grows up."

"I doubt that." Yun Yajun grew more pissed off as his father defended his daughter. Lin Wan'er patted his back trying to calm him down, "Don't be angry please. Take care."

"She runs wild even I am still at home. If I go to Peach Blossom City, she will do worse." Yun Yajun was exasperated.

Lin Wan'er's hand stopped at his words, "Yajun, you are going to Peach Blossom City?"

Yun Yajun plopped into his seat, still furious, "Yes. The bandits in Peach Blossom Mountain just outside Peach Blossom City have grown in numbers, so His Majesty has ordered me to crush them." He waved distractedly, his mind on Yun Canglan's behavior and not the details he was sharing about his trip.

Yun Yajun was also annoyed; he should not be chasing bandits. As the Huguo General, he should be on the battlefield, but now Can Kingdom was at peace. The emperor ordered him to this task less worthy of his skills.

Lin Wan'er frowned, she would miss Yun Yajun and worry every time her husband went away.

Yun He, however, was calm, used to skirmishes on the battlefield as he was.

Yun Canglan was contemplating her father's assignment, resting in Yun He's arms.

Crush bandits? The Huguo General would be going to handle some bandits?

It was not that simple!
