Feng Gui was tired when he returned home at night. Yun Canglan had dinner ready. She greeted him at the gate with a gentle smile.

"Gui, have you had dinner? Father and mother have eaten, " she said.

Just a look at Yun Canglan's pretty face made Feng Gui's exhaustion disappear. "Yes. How about you?" He smiled back at her.

Yun Canglan shook her head. "No. I want to have it with you, " she lied. She had already eaten.

Feng Gui felt guilty, "Sorry, Canglan. I have been so busy recently that I am unable to keep you company. I promise I will have dinner with you every night once I'm free."

Yun Canglan smiled shyly, "I will wait for you." It was supposed to be their farewell dinner.

While they were talking, Chu Qing entered the courtyard with two servants. She walked up to Feng Gui with a smile but got angry when she saw the cold food on the table. "Since your husband has come back, you should have re-heated the food. How can you offer him cold food?" she addressed Yun Canglan.

"Gui works hard every day to provide you with the beautiful dresses you wear and the delicious food you eat, " she cursed. "And look at you, you didn't even bother to heat the food for him. What if he gets sick after eating the cold food?" Chu Qing glared at Yun Canglan in disgust. As far as she was concerned, Yun Canglan was inferior than her two servants also.

Yun Canglan stood aside listening. Yun Qin and Yun Qi, who stood not far away, scowled at Chu Qing but didn't dare do anything without the permission of their mistress.

Feng Gui observed the entire scene, felt overwhelmed, but didn't know what to say.

"Don't feel superior just because you married Gui. You are just a bitch from nowhere, and your pretty face is useless. Gui doesn't need a prostitute for a wife. You'd better stay in the courtyard and not go outside. Don't wink at the servants. We're a wealthy and influential family. I don't want others to gossip and say that we have a foxy daughter-in-law, " continued Chu Qing.

Yun Canglan

stand at such a high place? Could you please come down? My neck hurts just looking at you." Since childhood, others had looked up at her, while she stared down and spat at them.

Shui Minghan excitedly jumped down from the roof and stood in front of Yun Canglan. His black robe made him look cool, capable, and attractive.

"It's late. Why were you standing there?" Yun Canglan joked. "Were you checking if the roof leaked?"

Shui Minghan looked sad. "Canglan, look my feather has spread." Yun Canglan knew ten years ago that he had a feather. Shui Minghan knew the prophecy of the Fire Phoenix's feathers and later learned that Yun Canglan was the Fire Phoenix without feathers and that she had been looking for her feathers; men with feather birthmarks.

Yun Canglan told Shui Minghan that the feathers of those who opened their minds to her would spread on their own. He had waited for ten years and was jealous of the androgynous man whose feather had spread when he had first met Yun Canglan ten years ago.

Shui Minghan eagerly raised his right hand like a child for Yun Canglan to inspect. A blood red feather on his wrist spread under the bright moonlight, but he was disappointed.

Yun Canglan glanced at it indifferently.

His feather had spread, but she didn't really care about it.

"Well, it does look good, " she said.
