At the guard post of Peach Blossom City

Yun Yajun and his troops slept peacefully. General Yun Yajun was not taking the threat of the bandits on Peach Blossom Mountain seriously, so he didn't order any watch guards posted throughout the night.

Late that night, the two lanterns that hung on the guard post's doorway were too dim to see by.

In the darkness, shadows shuffled along the walls, huddling together across from the doorway, were barely discernible figures. Using the dimming light, they entered the post like ghosts.

Yun Canglan climbed off Yun Qin's back, "Is it this room?"

Outside the room, Yun Canglan turned, asking in a hushed tone. Yun Qin and Yun Qi nodded silently.

Yun Qin opened the door for Yun Canglan. As soon as Yun Canglan walked into the room bathed by the dim moonlight, the door closed again and it was as though it had not been opened.

The man rolled over in his sleep and was suddenly awakened by the footsteps. He rose grabbing the broadsword at bedside.

"Who is there?"

Yun Hu shouted. The room may be dark, but he could clearly hear the visitor's loud breathing.

Yun Hu was a warrior, so he was alert and ready for an attack. However, he wasn't prepared for brutality, he didn't think the visitor would be out to kill.

"Who are you? Say something, damn you."

"Uncle Yun Hu, hush. You are scaring me."

The voice faded. A candle was suddenly lit, but no one was near it.

The sudden light made Yun Hu squeeze his eyes shut. The sight that greeted him as he opened his eyes was an unexpected visitor.

"Your Royal Highness?" Yun Hu rubbed his eyes in disbelief. Standing before him was Yun Canglan. His thoughts raced as he stared, 'What brings His Royal Highness here? Who are the two teenagers with him?'

"Your Royal Highness, why are you here? How is it you got here? Does the General know you are here? Also, who are they?" Yun Hu was asking a lot of questions and thought he probably shouldn't do that.

Yun Canglan faintly smiled and in a low but serious voice told Yun Hu, "Uncle Yun Hu, calm down please. I come on my own, and my father has no idea I am here."

Yun Hu was stunned. He finally understood.

Yun Canglan always seemed to be coward, weak, and naughty,


"Young Master Yun, I'll do whatever you want." Yu Hu answered determinedly, addressing Yun Canglan more formally.

"I'll order masks to be made for you later. You will have to serve in the General's House with other identities and protect the people there."

"Yes." Yu Hu greatly admired Yun Canglan's strategic abilities and maturity. It was best for the General's House if they retreated for now.

Yun Canglan worried, "Uncle Yun Hu, don't promise me right now. I trust you, but I don't know whether the other members will obey me."

"The General saved us on the battlefield. Without him, we would have been eaten by the wild beasts. We discarded our pasts, including country and surnames. We view the General as the most important person. You are the only son of the General. I believe what you do is the best for him. All of us know that."

Yun Canglan looked up at the dark sky. The autumn night always looked a little bleak. "It doesn't matter, but you can tell them this, my father saved you; I can destroy you. I hate betrayal and deception above all else. I don't want to go that far."

Yun Canglan was imposingly standing there. Yun Hu was a few steps away from him, and could clearly feel the pressure from him.

"Don't worry. We pledge to serve you."

Then, the 36 members of the Yun's Troops became the secret force of the General's House. Reputed to be, 'The Thirty-Six Fighters in Darkness;' they were the strong backing for Yun Canglan to rule the world.
