A man dressed in plain-clothes astride a white horse came up the road. His black hair wafted gracefully in the wind, and attractive features had girls blushing as they passed by him. He only had eyes for the woman standing at the gate dressed in the white gown. Seeing her there made him smile cheerfully.

Feng Gui stopped and dismounted agilely at the gate, greeting his parents first, "Father, mother, sorry to keep you worrying about me."

Chu Qing hugged Feng Gui, her excitement overwhelmed her, and she wept, "Oh, thank God! You're finally home. I was so worried about you."

Although Feng Tian was excited, he couldn't bear his wife's tears. "Don't cry; it is such a good day."

"Mother, father is right. You should be happy that I am home." Feng Gui felt fatigued from the journey, but he still looked charming. He was deserving of the title most outstanding man in Can Kingdom.

Yun Canglan watched the reunion feeling irrelevant as she stood to the side. Alas, she wasn't part of this family, anyway.

Chu Qing wiped her tears smiling, "I am happy, come, let's go inside. I ordered your favorite food prepared. We haven't enjoyed a family meal together in a long time."

Feng Gui stopped. "Mother, please wait." He turned to his gentle wife Yun Canglan; he felt so much in his heart, that he wanted her to know, and couldn't help but smile, feeling he would burst with emotion.

"Yun'er, I am sorry to make you suffer, waiting." Feng Gui was smiling gently down at her.

With tears in her eyes, Yun Canglan nodded her head, responding as a decent and virtuous wife, "It is good that you return, safe and sound."

Feng Gui held her hand. "Come, let's go inside."

Their affectionate display disgusted Chu Qing. Feng Tian turned his head disapproving and did not look at the two.

At the dinner table, Chu Qing picked up food to feed Feng Gui happily. Feng Gui occasionally picked up food feeding it to Yun Canglan softly smiling at her.

"Well, Gui, did you acquire anything this journey?" Feng Gui's parents couldn't bear his tenderness to Yun Canglan as they didn't l

d bowed low to Chu Qing, "I am sorry, it's my fault. I am leaving."

Feng Gui grasped her arm and stopped her; his eyes silently spoke his regret and shame as he frowned, "Please wait, the table is big, and we can add another seat."

"No, it is okay. I am already stuffed." Yun Canglan smiled gently, "Besides, with His Royal Highness here, you two must have a lot to talk about. I should go."

She brushed against Xi Zhiyao, who had an inscrutable smile as he watched her leave.

"Zhiyao, have a seat. She is of unknown origin and ill-bred too, just let her go." Chu Qing sat back in her seat and had Yun Canglan's bowl and chopsticks replaced.

Feng Gui was unhappy, "Mother, did Yun'er offend you? Why do you always treat her so poorly?"

Chu Qing glowered, "Why would I like a tease? She hasn't gotten pregnant in the two years you have been married. Luckily, Yueyue is pregnant, or we would have no grandchildren."

"Mother…"

"I know you want to keep your concubine out of the way. I'll keep my mouth shut, but it's normal for men to have concubines. Why does Yueyue have to live in another house? She will deliver the baby soon. You should go keep her company when you are free."

"Mother, please stop."

"It's okay. She can't hear me."

Xi Zhiyao sat quietly eating, with his head lowered and thinking of something altogether different than the topic between those two.
