"My Crown Prince, you misunderstand. I was an onlooker, " Yun Canglan said, her smile as enchanting as the Red Spider Lily blooming in the hell, "but then I saw an acquaintance in trouble. It is only natural for me to offer assistance."

Huo Liuyun's eyes flickered with the severe danger of the situation as he responded, "What you say indicates you are an accomplice though."

"Haha, " Night Phoenix was so powerful and attractive in every aspect that even hearing a giggle had an incessant effect on the Crown Prince, "Huo Liuyun, you are too arrogant."

'Rival of the Can Kingdom? No, I will bring the Can Kingdom under my control, and you will become my slave.'

"You…." Huo Liuyun unrestrained, he exploded enraged, "Mister Night Phoenix, you are a bully. What? You think no one can best you? In all of the Can Kingdom?"

"Guards, bows ready at my mark!"

He gave the order, and archers appeared from the dark. Bows and arrows readied, awaiting orders to fire on the lone figure.

"Hahahaha, " Yun Canglan chuckled, at the bows, as if they were trivial, "Huo Liuyun, you are as naive as ever."

'Three years ago I hadn't any power, and so I feigned death. Today I no longer fear you. Those impotent bowmen cannot stop me.'

Huo Liuyun glared up at Yun Canglan squinting hard, "What did you say?"

"Nothing."

Huo Liuyun missed what Yun Canglan said but he knew it wasn't praise. He threatened Yun Canglan, "Night Phoenix, because I appreciate your talent I will spare your life, if you surrender to me now. If not…"

Yun Canglan shook her head and sighed regrettably, "Huo Liuyun, you are so shameless and thick-skulled, nothing gets through."

'Huo Liuyun, you haven't changed. You use anyone who has value in your eyes.'

"Night Phoenix, you think I won't give the order?"

"Oh, I am sure you will, as surely as I stand here. Huo Liuyun, I know you, and you would dare anything. You are so rude and heartless that you would use a girl who grew up with you; you would set up the Huguo General, and you would indulge the Chancellor of the Can Kingdom. So why would I think there is anything you would not do?" 'After all, the Can Kingdom is yours, so you do anything you like.'

Huo Liuyun stared at Yun Canglan, and grief flashed across his face. He asked perplexed, "Who on earth are you?" 'How? How could he possibly know I used Canglan and how could he know I will set up the Huguo General?'

"Who am I you ask?" Yun Canglan teased, "I am the one who knows you best."

'Huo Liuyun, I know the meaning of every glance and the intentions behind each action you take. I am the person, who knows you best.'

He couldn't hide his feelings or suppress his pain, and his face was stricken with the grief he carried. Suddenly, he mistook the person on the roof for the ghost he held in his heart.

A confused Huo stood silently pulled back to a distant memory.

"I want to be your soulmate Liuyun."

"You want to be my soulmate? Canglan, do you know what I am thinking about?"

"Liuyun, you are trying to decide on whether to have braised joint of pork in brown sauce or sweet and sour spareribs."

"Little girl, you are such a foodaholic. I suppose you are eager for dinner."

"Liuyun, I want to be the one that knows you best. I'm willing to share in all your annoyances."

"When you stop flirting with beauties, I won't be as annoyed."

"Hahaha, Liuyun you are jealous."

Her words recalled the memories of a bygone age.

'The one who knew me best, ha, she knew me best and died

on my chest.'

"Night Phoenix, you and your underlings have only one chance to surrender." His voice turned cruel and cutting as his momentary weakness disappeared. Making anyone wonder if it was but an illusion.

"The Night Phoenix never surrenders to anyone."

"Then I will show no mercy! Release."

The moment he ordered the shooters fired numerous arrows flew at the roof and the two people standing motionless calmly watching the arrows sail toward them.

Huo Liuyun clamped his mouth and shut a violent gleam in his eyes as he glowered at the two on the roof, waiting for them to fall.

His wish was in vain.

The arrows stopped, dropping mere inches from the targets as if they hit a wall.

Huo Liuyun widened his eyes in astonishment, 'Impossible; there are no walls at all up there. What stopped the arrows? Impossible, it's impossible.'

"Archers! Again, release!" He ordered.

Another round of arrows soared high headed straight to the two above but again, the projectiles failed to reach their marks.

The guards looked on, but what they saw was inconceivable. Not one arrow made its mark. Were they apparitions?

Yun Canglan waved the White Jade Fan as the tassels swayed, "Huo Liuyun, are you scared to death?"

'You don't know yet we are within a Tiangang maze, * and you are destined to be my slave.'

(*TN: Tiangang maze is used to defend oneself or trap enemies.)

"Are you witches?" Huo Liuyun couldn't even persuade himself, but what other explanation could there be?

Yun Canglan's face clouded urging Yun Qi to leave, regardless of Huo Liuyun's questions. "Enough!"

'I am tired and need my beauty rest.' Yun Qi was playing with the guards.

Yun Qi sped up when he heard his Mistress's orders. He killed the guards nearest and jumped higher to the roof harboring the injured assassin.

Huo Liuyun watched the two as they flew higher, landing on the roof without injury, and leaving the spectators including Huo Liuyun astonished once more.

Yun Qi stood in front of Yun Canglan using the assassin's clothes to wrap his hand.

"Duan Mingxuan is here."

"Thank you for saving my life." Duan Mingxuan showed his respect by bowing his head.

Yun Canglan nodded absently, more interested in seeing the prize, "Duan Mingxuan, do you have what I requested?"

Duan Mingxuan pushed the bloody package at Yun Canglan explaining, "The head of the concubine, Lady Yuan, who only recently wed His Crown Prince."

Yun Canglan smiled, "Great! This concludes our trade Duan Mingxuan."

Yun Canglan turned back to a gloomy Huo Liuyun and scoffed, "Huo Liuyun, this is between you and me now, and has nothing to do with Duan Mingxuan. If you attack him in the Can Kingdom, I will seek revenge on you wherever you go."

Her tone was cold and arrogant, and none dare defy.

Duan Mingxuan looked at Yun Canglan full of appreciation and admiration.

The lonely night wind blew the Night Phoenix's long hair and red earrings danced as though instep. It was clear the Night Phoenix possessed an indomitable spirit, incomparable arrogance, and ferocity which an emperor holds.

"Huo Liuyun, remember, my revenge has just begun."

After finishing those heartfelt words, a strong wind blew, and the roof overflowed with petals filling the whole sky. The scent of Red Spider Lily wafted through the air, as the beautiful and dangerous petals fluttered down in the dark.

"Aim! Fire!" Huo Liuyun ordered too late, the petals dropped and the two figures on the roof had disappeared.
