When Huo Liuyun stepped into the imperial garden, accompanied by several guards, he took in the scene before him. Yun Canglan was sitting on a stone bench with Yun Qin and Yun Qi standing behind her. Ten or more concubines stood nearby trembling with fear, including a lady dressed in yellow with grapes cupped in her hands; one in pink holding a teapot; a lady in green that was furiously waving a fan and a lady in red who was massaging her shins.

The exhibition made Huo Liuyun feel as though a god had been invited into the imperial palace.

"You seem rather happy, Miss Feng" Huo Liuyun remarked, his smile appeared soft, however, his voice was steeped with annoyance. He glanced around for Lady Lan's body. He had hurried to the imperial garden immediately after being told Lady Lan had been killed. But where was the body?

Yun Canglan opened her mouth to talk, but the concubines around her chose that moment to rush to Huo Liuyun surrounding him like flies on shit.

Thankful their patron had finally arrived.

Grapes, teapot and the fan were tossed aside, and even the lady massaging her shins stopped and sought protection from the Crown Prince.

Watching the shit with his flies in front of her, Yun Canglan tightened her lips in aggraivation.

"My Crown Prince, waaah. Please help me, I was so scared." A timid and lovable concubine cried.

"My Crown Prince, my hands are still shaking!" A spoiled concubine complained.

"My Crown Prince, help us please! That woman, she killed Lady Lan and we all saw it!" A practical and realistic concubine screamed.

"My Crown Prince, that woman wanted to kill us too! Waah, it was horrible!" Rumors fabricated out of thin air.

"My Crown Prince, her servant girls know kung fu and Lady Lan was strangled by one of them!" One accused them three.

"My Crown Prince, I was so scared by this, and my feet were hit by the grapes." A concubine pretended she had been abused.

Huo Liuyun shouted impatiently as more ladies crowded him, complaining and whining, "Enough!" His concubines had never seen Huo Liuyun upset, and they stopped talking, looking at him in fear.

Huo Liuyun looked down at Yun Canglan as he got away from his concubines and strode up to her.

"Miss Feng, are you able to tell me what has transpired here?" Since the head of the Fengyun Firm came to the imperial palace, Huo Liuyun had been living in stress and turmoil with his concubines, he realized.

Yun Canglan looked charming and quite sexy to him as she yawned, stretching herself out.

"Lady Lan sought to slap me. I warned her that if anyone dared slap me, they would die. She decided to go ahead and attack me, so she was killed." Yun Canglan shrugged her shoulders as if it was of no consequence.

Huo Liuyun glanced up at Yun Qin and Yun Qi indifferently, and then gazed back down at Yun Canglan, "I'm sorry that Lady Lan offended you, but she was the Princess of Chi Kingdom. How shall I explain this to the Chi Kingdom?"

His voice was gentle, but his eyes were cutting.

The concubines watching Huo Liuyun were astonished that this arrogant yet beautiful lady had not saluted the Crown Prince, or even bother to stand up, and he was not mad at all.

Wasn't she the Crown Prince's new concubine?

Suddenly they remembered Lady Ling.

It was said that the Crown Prince returned to the imperial palace with a beautiful lady several days ago, and Lady Ling tried to provoke her. The woman had Lady Ling whipped.

Was this the woman?

The scornful look in Yun Qin and Yun Qi's eyes told the ladies they were right and made them wonder if the two could read minds.

The concubines looked fearfully at Yun Canglan and her servant girls shivering.

Huo Liuyun was looking do

wn at Yun Canglan waiting for an explanation.

Yun Qin couldn't help chuckling at the look on Huo Liuyun's face, "Yun Qi, have you seen a woman violated?"

Yun Qi couldn't help a suppressed giggle: "Yes, I have. He looks exactly the same."

"Ha-ha-ha..."

Yun Canglan was sipping water while listening to the two, and her drink spewed from her mouth when she tried bottling her laughter. She looked at Huo Liuyun with an innocent expression telling him she didn't mean it, really.

Yun Qin and Yun Qi looked up at the sky, rolling their eyes still trying not to giggle.

They tried to look and act as though they were innocent.

Yun Canglan took a silk handkerchief from Yun Qi and dried her mouth.

"My Crown Prince, would you like me to take responsibility?" She proposed.

Yun Qin and Yun Qi choked making them cough.

Yun Canglan arched her brow, scornfully toward their behavior.

Huo Liuyun kept his temper in check, even though he was fuming. When he was about to say something, Yun Canglan suggested, "I should take accountability for Lady Lan's death. To make it up to you, I will relocate the salt business of the Fengyun Firm to the Can Kingdom, would that be agreeable?" She kept to herself, 'I did it on purpose!'

Salt industry was a core industry throughout the seven kingdoms. If the Fengyun Firm moved the salt business to the Can Kingdom, it would mean substantial economic growth for the Can Kingdom, which pleased Huo Liuyun.

"Let bygones be bygones! We will forget about this whole ordeal. Miss Feng, please don't think twice about it. Going forward, I will make sure they know the rules and punish them strictly ." Huo Liuyun asserted his serene smile once more matching his tone.

The Crown Prince's concubines studied Huo Liuyun skeptically not sure they could believe what they heard.

He exchanged the life of one of his concubines, and a princess of the Chi Kingdom for salt. None of them could boast as honorable a family background as the Lady Lan. Did that mean they were worth less than salt? What would become of them?

When the deal concluded the concubines had gone from confused to viewing their husband with terror in the eyes.

Yun Canglan watched the drama while sipping tea.

She considered, 'Poor ladies! I just wanted you to see that to Huo Liuyun, you are nothing more than goods.'

Huo Liuyun unknowingly had just given another step toward her goals. Beaming now, he asked, "Miss Feng, will Lei Tianyan return soon? His Majesty wants very much to have a welcome dinner in your honor."

She had turned him down every time he brought up mention of a welcome dinner and even gave the reason that her man wasn't present.

Yun Canglan feigned sympathy, "Tianyan is busy with his affairs. We don't have to wait for him." She sent Lei Tianyan back to the Si kingdom, and he would come back next month.

Huo Liuyun was elated with her news, "Great! I will make the arrangements. Would tomorrow be acceptable?"

Yun Canglan didn't refuse him.

"Will the 6th Prince of the Lie Kingdom be able to attend the dinner too?" Huo Liuyun was scheming, and thinking ahead, 'It's not bad idea to make friends with the beloved 6th Prince of the Lie Kingdom.'

Yun Canglan gave Huo Liuyun a strange look, "The 6th Prince of the Lie Kingdom? I am sure I don't know him."

Huo Liuyun became confused, "He is also known at Mister Wu Hen, and is one of the Nine Prominent Figures."

Yun Canglan shook her head slowly, "I don't know."

Huo Liuyun was stunned. The day at the Feng's House, the 6th Prince moved to protect Feng Yun'er. How could Feng Yun'er not know him?

Reflecting on this heavily, Huo Liuyun concluded that the boss of the Fengyun Firm was a little dense.
