Yun Yajun let the servants off duty at dusk, then he, Lin Wan'er and Yun Canglan enjoyed the evening together, starting with dinner.

"Canglan, try these shrimp dumplings that I made." Using her chopsticks, Lin Wan'er put a dumpling into Yun Canglan's bowl, and just as quick, she swallowed it in one gulp, licking her lips and savoring the taste.

Yun Yajun put his bowl and chopsticks down, and nagging Yun Canglan, "Look at you, why, don't look like a girl at all!"

Her mouth full of dumpling, "What have I done?" Yun Canglan sputtered.

Her behavior recently was above reproach. She hadn't been to the Wanhong Brothel for a long time or any of the new brothels in Can City. The girls in the street were no longer accosted or harassed by her. She did want to go to a casino, but Yun Yajun wouldn't give her money. She had long before stopped snatching brides or grooms. There were only a few handsome boys in Can City, and she had already peeked at them in the bath.

Come to think of it, she hadn't done any evil recently.

"Just look at you!! Stop shoveling food into your mouth! Young ladies always take small bites, and they chew and swallow slowly with care. Ladies do not speak with full mouths. You are making a fool of yourself!" an exasperated Yun Yajun chided.

Yun Canglan stared at her father for a long time before she finally swallowed the food in her mouth and turned to Lin Wan'er, "Mother, father was jealous that you put a dumpling in my bowl and not his." she told her mother chuckling.

Yun Yajun was fuming, and turning red with embarrassment, "Bastard!"

Lin Wan tried in vain to suppress a giggle, as she continued to put dumplings in Yun Canglan's bowl.

Yun Canglan said to Yun Yajun, "Dad, you scold and beat me when grandpa is gone, and you are upset now over mom doting on me. I'm mom's precious one! Don't be so jealous!"

Yun Yajun banged his big hand on the table, which made Yun Canglan go rigid with fear.

She yelled: "Mom, mom! Help me! Dad is going to kill me!"

"Bastard! Come here! I will fix you!" Yun Yajun shouted.

"Yajun!" Lin Wan'er stood between Yun Yajun and Yun Canglan to calm him down, "Canglan is just making a joke. Don't take it seriously, and Canglan, show your father respect! You will be the wife of His Crown Prince tomorrow. I should hope you won't behave in this manner, and will instead act appropriately at the imperial palace!" She eyed both her husband and daughter as she reprimanded the two

If he doesn't agree to turn the military leadership to His Majesty, please do everything you can."

"Yes, Mistress! I will do everything I can to persuade His Lordship!" Yun Hu answered, but he didn't understand why, "But if His Majesty takes back the military leadership, His Lordship will be in danger."

Yun Canglan nodded her head slowly agreeing, "Of course the military leadership must be in the hands of our people. Uncle Yun Hu, do you know Liang Zhong and Xue Ying?"

"I know them. Liang Zhong is the new Minister of Military, and Xue Ying is the son of Prince Xue." Yun Hu stated.

"Most generals of Can Kingdom are my father's subordinates. When Huo Liuyun finally takes back the military leadership, he won't give it back to my father's subordinates. He is sure to give it to Liang Zhong or Xue Ying!" Yun Canglan cited.

"As far as I am aware, Liang Zhong was promoted by Huo Liuyun. Prince Xue appears to remain neutral, but Xue Ying seems to be in bed with the Grand Preceptor." Yun Hu answered.

As the steward of the General's House, Yun Hu knew all the great events in the world.

Yun Canglan nodded her head, "Huo Liuyun is sure to give the military leadership to Liang Zhong. But if I spread rumors, I wonder if Huo Liuyun will change his mind?"

She would spread rumors such as Liang Zhong was closely tied to the General's House.

Yun Hu's eyes widened as he came to understand, and asked cheerfully, "Mistress, do you mean Xue Ying is our man?"

Yun Canglan gave him a mysterious smile but was silent.

'Liuyun, if you betray me someday, I swear I will bring down your world.' Yun Canglan thought to herself.
