"Thank you, My Prince, " said Yun Canglan. She lowered her head, hiding her crafty smile.

She hadn't finished. "Croton, ruanjinsan, aphrodisiac, " she softly said under her breath.

Hearing her soft words, Yan Cangyue started trembled with anger. "Who..who are you?" He stammered, livid.

Croton, ruanjinsan, aphrodisiac...

Though these were commonly available in drug stores, their combination could cause problems.

Yan Cangyue recalled what had happened at a brothel in Can Kingdom ten years ago. He was thoroughly discredited when he mistakenly ate croton and ruanjinsan, while drugged. Once sober, he had wanted to kill the evildoer who turned out to be the damn Royal of Can Kingdom, but couldn't. Learning that she was already dead, he had finally resumed his spirits.

Yan Cangyue was sure that all those who knew what had happened at the brothel were dead. Then how did this lady know about the incident?

Yun Canglan played innocent. She fluttered her eyelashes at the prince and said, "Sorry, what did you say?"

"Who are you?" Yan Cangyue asked again gnashing his teeth in hatred. What a coincidence this was! Obviously, Yun Canglan had intentionally provoked him.

Yun Canglan winked at Yan Cangyue, "My Prince, don't you know me? I'm Feng Yun'er. We had a nice talk just now, didn't we? How come you don't know who I am?" Yun Canglan carefully asked as if she was scared, "Oh no! My Prince, do you suffer from the unmentionable disease?" she feigned concern.

"No, I don't! Damn you!" Yan Cangyue shouted loudly. The music stopped abruptly, and all the others looked at him in curiosity.

Yun Canglan turned to her parents and shrugged her slim shoulders nonchalantly.

Blushing with embarrassment, Yan Cangyue stared at Yun Canglan. Yan Cangyue's bodyguard saw that the prince was about to get even angrier. He made an excuse on his behalf, "I'm sorry. The Third Prince doesn't feel well today." But Yan Cangyue didn't appreciate his interference.

"No, I'm perfectly fine, " he retorted. Yan Cangyue calmed himself down. He then turned to face Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun. "I feel sad as I recall my sister today, Your Majesty. In the prese

Canglan thought of something else. She said, "Well, Your Crown Prince, something occurs to me." Before Huo Liuyun or Yan Cangyue could react, she blinked at the Crown Prince.

"You had said that you wouldn't pursue this thing any further. Then, why did you bring it up today? I have transferred the salt transportation business to Can Kingdom as I had promised. Isn't it enough?"

Everyone now understood what had happened.

Huo Liuyun wanted to drive a wedge between Chi Kingdom and Fengyun Firm and profit from it.

Xi Zhiyao squinted at Huo Liuyun in surprise, but remained indifferent.

Yan Cangyue glared at Huo Liuyun, who turned pale.

He could say nothing and felt as if someone was clutching at his throat. Then he realized he shouldn't have offended Yun Canglan, the proprietor of Fengyun Firm. She was arrogant and mighty, but the worst part was that she pretended to be fragile.

'Had I offended her before? Why did she set me up?' Huo Liuyun was confused.

In this case, the reputation of the royal court of Can Kingdom was ruined, and the Crown Prince, Huo Liuyun was humiliated. He could now not take over the salt transportation business even if Yun Canglan gave it to him for free.

Huo Yang looked depressed. Scowling at Yun Canglan, he could do nothing and therefore chose to remain silent.

Pursing her lips and fixing her eyes on Huo Liuyun and Huo Yang, Yun Canglan felt happy that she had succeeded in humiliating Huo Liuyun.
