On the third day of the second month of the Shuihuo Calendar

Spring arrived and with it came a surprise snow storm which left all of Can City blanketed in white. Plum blossoms were blooming, and their fragrance permeated Can City, and even though the wind was cold, the sun shining down felt hot. There were charming young men and gentle girls out walking, enjoying the snow and plum blossoms, and playing children crowded onto the ice-covered Lake Heartlinking which lay on the outskirts of the city.

The day offered beautiful weather coupled with exceptional scenery, making it a perfect day for the betrothal feast between the Crown Prince and his betrothed. Naturally, the upcoming wedding was the hottest talk in Can City. The Crown Prince of Can Kingdom was handsome, gentle, courteous, and he thought about the everyday people of the city. The Crown Prince, Huo Liuyun, was virtuous, a hero and the secret crush of countless hopeful young girls.

The engagement of the Crown Prince to Yun Canglan, the wicked Princess, had crushed the dreams of many a young girl and the citizens whispered continually.

Even so, the betrothal feast was exceptional and exciting.

Can City was exciting and full of liveliness during the day. Envoys arrived bearing gifts for the couple from the six countries.

The betrothal banquet was like any other feast except it was much grander.

Everyone was already exhausted at the end of the day, especially Yun Canglan, who was sore and barely made it to bed.

From then on, Yingpiao Palace would be Yun Canglan's home and she needed to get used to that. Kept as a sparrow in captivity, which was the tradition for a bride to be before an affluent marriage.

'I have given up my freedom to accompany you, Liuyun. Don't forsake me!' Yun Canglan thought as she began to drift off.

"Mistress, you haven't eaten all day, please have a bite." Yun Shu brought some food. Yun Canglan sat up part way, looked at the fare and fell back drained against the pillows.

"I'm tired and all I want is sleep."

Yun Hua picked her up, "You can't, Mistress, you haven't eaten all day. Besides, isn't His Crown Prince coming later?"

Yun Canglan suddenly opened her eyes. She almost forgot the business. "Okay, bring me the meal so I may finish it quickly!"

Yun Shu rolled her eyes, 'Mistress, you're a Princess now!'

Yun Canglan wolfed everything down, leaving empty dishes and cups cluttering the table.

"I would like to bathe now." She decided that a nice soak would not only wash the grime, but it would also refresh her, and she would smell nice for Liuyun.

"It's ready." Yun Hua opened the screen, and the steam from the tub carried the faint scent of plum blossoms into the room.

"You're a virtuous young lady, Yun Hua. I'll find a good man to marry you."

Yun Hua blushed, "Mistress, you're very naughty. Watch out, or I might snitch on you to Her Ladyship and His Lordship." Yun Hua confided as she removed Yun Canglan's clothes and Yun Shu gently removed her hairpin. Yun Canglan's thick hair cascaded down her back like an ebony waterfall.

"Try the water first, Mistress."

She stood over the tub, her skin as ethereal white as the clouds and delicately dangled her foot like a lotus floating on a pond. She gently slipped her toes in, which caused the water to ripple. She pulled her toes back and the room filled with a mist as well as with the scent of lotus blossoms.

"You two may leave, I'll bath myself."

Yun Shu and Yun Hua tidied up, placing clean clothes on the screen as they went, "Don't fall asleep in there, Mistress. When the water gets cold, you'll catch your death."

They reminded her, concerned for her health before leaving her alone.

Yun Canglan finished stripping, and slid into the plum blossom water. The steam gave the room a dreamy, romantic appearance.

The door creaked open, while she was scooping water and letting it wash over her delicate shoulders.

"I told you not to serve me, I want to be alone!"

On the other side of the screen, the steps halted. Yun Canglan saw the silhouette of a tall, straight figure. He was standing with a confident demeanor with only the partition separating them.

Disconcerted, Huo Liuyun had wandered through the bedchambers. No one was there to proclaim his entrance, so he kept going. He had not expected to stumble on Yun Canglan bathing. Behind the screen, he could make out a form fain

tly amid the haze. Water splashing added an erotic sense to the air.

Yun Canglan went still, sensing whoever that was, it was not Yun Shu or Yun Hua.

"Who is there?"

"It's me, Canglan..." the hoarse yet soft voice cracked slightly. Looking at the shadow figure on the barrier, Huo Liuyun could feel his suddenly dry throat burning as he spoke.

"Liuyun, give me a minute." Behind the screen, water sploshed and splashed as Yun Canglan hurriedly finished to get out. He watched the screen, gulping as he swallowed, and remained motionless.

Yun Canglan rose to dress, forgetting that her figure would be seen through the screen.

Across the partition displayed the graceful form of a young woman. Her full breasts, slender waist and long legs tormented Huo Liuyun. He found he could not look away or move as if in a trance.

Her outline fascinated him.

A surge of warmth rushed across his abdomen and he felt his temperature rise as he became aroused.

Water splashed onto Yun Canglan's feet when she had stepped lightly out of the wooden tub. Plum blossom scent mixed with an aroma of lotus wafted to him from somewhere on the other side of the screen. Huo Liuyun was in paradise, caught, as he was in the middle of those faint and overwhelming fragrances.

The figure slowly donned clothes covering the small, curvaceous silhouette, before emerging from behind the screen, as pure as a lotus fairy.

Yun Canglan was elegant looking even in the modest, loose white robe that concealed her curves. Her long hair hung down her back dripping slowly, which only added to her enchanting allure.

She walked up to Huo Liuyun and saw the glazed, intoxicated look in his eyes, which made her smile with satisfaction.

"Liuyun, why do you look at me in that manner? Am I so ugly to you?"

Huo Liuyun regained himself and blushing unnaturally red, "No... no, you are very pretty, Canglan."

His eyes wandered, yet were drawn back to this ordinary yet charming girl, who captivated his attention.

"Canglan, don't you have something important for me?" Huo Liuyun looked away, and suppressed his desire.

As Yun Canglan nervously leaned against his broad chest, the faint scent of lotus drifted into his nose, and he stood entranced like with an opioid.

"Liuyun, it is myself, that I have to give to you."

Her voice was low and shy, and her awkward mannerism made Huo Liuyun all that much hotter.

Huo Liuyun's body went rigid while his eyes gleamed making his desire became more apparent. Yun Canglan, however, saw a something else flash in his eyes.

Huo Liuyun pushed her back, "Don't fool around like this, Canglan, we're engaged today, not married."

Yun Canglan's red lips turned downward, "You do not want me, Liuyun?" There was an indefinable flirtation within her sweet innocence.

Huo Liuyun's eyes showed his full desire, letting Yun Canglan see he was suffering.

He firmly, but gently reminded her, "You're too young, Canglan. When you're 15...."

"But I don't want to wait to give myself to you."

It was low, but she hoped her actions would protect the General's House. Of course, the assumption was he cared about her.

Huo Liuyun avoided looking her in the eyes, and his breathing grew ragged and more rapid.

Yun Canglan gnashed her teeth secretly as she went on her tiptoes to kiss his firm, thin lips and the lotus scent immediately enveloped Huo Liuyun.

"Don't reject me, Liuyun." she whispered, while thinking 'And don't let me down.'

Huo Liuyun embraced Yun Canglan without thinking and savored her delicate sweetness. The two young bodies clung to each other. Defeated, he abandoned his original intention.

Staring down at her as he lifted her, she could see his passion and hunger, "No regrets, Canglan."

He laid her back on the bed gently covering her with his hard body. He retook her lips, with a fevered intensity not like the usual gentle fondness.

Layers of red curtains fell draping the bed. In the room, the candles flickered, while the once faint scent of lotus grew stronger and more substantial. Outside the ground was covered in deepening snow. Occasionally, there was snow shaken from a tree, felling to the ground, which all went unnoticed by the two in the room.

"Liuyun, don't betray me."

"Canglan, you will always be the treasure of my heart."

'Canglan, you are finally mine. Don't worry, Canglan, I'll never let you down, but....'
