Time passed quickly like a white pony's shadow across a crevice.

At midnight, Yun Canglan, along with Yun Qin and Yun Qi, sneaked away from the imperial palace of the Can Kingdom. Before leaving, Yun Canglan left a letter for Huo Liuyun. The eunuch who was on duty that night said that after reading the letter, His Crown Prince forgot his grace and uttered an extremely uncouth four-letter word.

For a while, everyone in Can City wanted to know the contents of the mysterious letter.

When someone asked Yun Canglan about it afterwards, she nonchalantly answered, "I just gave him two suggestions."

"What suggestions?"

Yun Canglan proudly said, "First, His Crown Prince always blames other people for failures. But actually he ought to look to himself also at times. And second, His Crown Prince has so many concubines. I asked him to be careful. What if he died from too much sex?"

The enquirer was stunned.

When the evening lights were lit, pretty lanterns were hung under the eaves of the Yelaixiang Brothel. Beautiful ladies stood in their regular positions assuming sexy postures, waving their handkerchiefs to seduce men.

Even before Yelaixiang Brothel opened for business, many men waited at its entrance. They packed into the hall and took their beloved ladies to private rooms as soon as the brothel opened.

San Niang waved her handkerchief and greeted the customers as usual, "Come in please! We have the most beautiful ladies here. We have virgins here. We have the most interesting games here. Today is our anniversary and we are offered big discounts. Don't miss them!"

Her attention was drawn to a particular man in the crowd. "Welcome Gentleman! Nice to meet you again. Aren't you with Mr. Zhang tonight? Are you going to play on the first floor or the floors above?" she coyly inquired.

Yan Cangyue had planned to go upstairs, but when he saw San Niang's scornful eyes, his pride was hurt. He wanted to prove that he, the most romantic man in the Chi Kingdom, was not an idiot. He had 5, 000 Liang that day and he did not believe that he would lose all his money, again.

"The first floor!" Yan Cangyue answered in a stubborn voice.

"Sure, Mister. Come in please. Mei Er, take good care of our guest, " San Niang was glad that Yan Cangyue had fallen for the bait. She was about to rip off him.

After seeing that Yan Cangyue had gone to the first floor, San Niang turned around and continued to greet the other customers, "Mr. Liu! You haven't been here for a few days. Is it because of your wife? Zao Zi has been waiting for you. Don't worry. We will guard the door and won't let your wife come in." She then addressed another customer, "Good evening, Mr. Dong! Which lady would you like to entice you tonight? I heard that you have sworn that you would sleep with every lady in Yelaixiang Brothel. Do you know that we replace a batch of ladies every two months? Even if you come here every night, you will be unable to sleep with every lady. Alas! You already look so tired." A newcomer attracted San Niang's attention. She directed her concentration towards him. "Gentleman! You are so handsome. Have you come here for the first time?" she asked in an engaging tone.

The newcomer was Yun Canglan dressed as a man. Her clothes were as red as blood; her smiling face was as beautiful as a lotus flower; her temperament was as elegant as a bamboo; and her eyes were as clear as water. She flapped the White Jade Fan sending a cool


Yun Canglan was surprised. She said, "I thought you must have gained weight as you stayed at Yelaixiang Brothel all day long. Tell me how you keep fit?"

Yun Yu finally understood what Yun Canglan meant. Yun Canglan was saying she was a homegirl. But Yun Canglan herself was a lazy person and she did nothing except for eat and sleep all day long.

Yun Yu stopped wondering about that question and seriously said, "Mistress, let me tell you the latest news of Buye Tower. Yelaixiang Brothel and Youjia Inn are the two major parts of Buye Tower. But we can only buy and sell news of ordinary people through these two establishments. As for the news of the world of martial arts and royal members, we have to find other channels. I'm developing such other channels now. I believe they should start working in a year or two."

"A year or two?" Yun Canglan was lost in thought. But her response scared Yun Yu. She wondered if the Mistress was not satisfied with the time.

"Recently, you have been unable to reply to any messages. Is that because of the same reason?" Yun Canglan raised her head while asking, exerting pressure on Yun Yu. Yun Yu lowered her head and dared not look her Mistress in the eyes.

"Yes, " she demurely said.

"We don't have a year or two. Some months shall be enough to develop those channels, " Yun Canglan declared confidently. Yun Yu was surprised. But she admired Yun Canglan's ideas and was very keen to learn how this would happen.

"Please guide me as to how to do this?"

"If we want to obtain news of Jianghu, it's simple. Just use our people, such as Yun Lie, who are already in Jianghu. As for the news of royal members, we should align our people into the imperial palaces or buy the people in the imperial palaces."

Actually, the power of Buye Tower was not to be underestimated. Buye Tower could even obtain the ancient news of imperial palaces. But what Buye Tower lacked was the speed of news delivery. Therefore, Yun Canglan wanted to align her people in the imperial palaces or Jianghu in such a way that any news rapidly traveled to her.

Yun Yu listened carefully, taking care not to miss a word.

"Who are close to the royal members inside the imperial palaces? And who are close to the royal members outside the imperial palaces?" asked Yun Canglan.
