Luo Mei turned pale. She continued weeping and telling her tale.

"Mr. Feng Gui called me 'Yun'er' while he molested me. He took a fancy to me as I closely resemble the girl named Yun'er…"

Yun Qi choked, glaring at Luo Mei disdainfully, "Oh please."

Yun Qin scoffed, "Miss Luo Mei, how can you compare yourself to Miss Feng Yun'er, the ex-wife of Mr. Feng Gui? It is invaluable to know oneself and place. Shame on you! You should know your place as a prostitute, and not try to be a social climber. Anyway, you are of humble origin."

Yun Qin's remarks were brutally scathing.

Luo Mei shook and pointed at Yun Qin, "You…You Shut up!"

"What's wrong with me? Why, I would be much prettier than you if I dressed like a woman. You can't hold a candle to Miss Feng Yun'er. Don't overvalue yourself."

Luo Mei's face blackened with anger. Some onlookers no longer felt pity for her as they figured out what was going on.

Yun Qi spoke to San Niang, "She indulges in this wild fantasy, and she truly believes she can attach herself to Mr. Feng Gui. Mark my words, she will ruin your brothel."

Yun Canglan and Yun Yu remained silent, watching the drama unfold, while San Niang trembled with fear, lowering her head. San Niang knew the reputations of Yun Qin and Yun Qi, also known as the Medical Sage and Poison Sage. They could be challenging to deal with, so she decided to stop before things went too far.

"I'm sorry." San Niang apologized, "I shouldn't have hired her. I will return her contract."

The Yelaixiang Brothel was well-known throughout the seven kingdoms spanning the two continents, and could easily fire Luo Mei, but the shame Luo Mei would bring with this incident would be long-lasting.

With dazzling elegance and flair, Yun Canglan stepped forward as San Niang turned away.

Luo Mei cried bitterly, but her lust and hatred were evident. Yun Canglan pinched her chin.

The scene was like an artist's vision until Yun Canglan spoke, "How ugly of you."

Embarrassed, Luo Mei whined, "Sir, why are you saying such mean things? You don't even know me!"

"Well, what you did here disgusts me." Yun Canglan said coldly. As she spun, her red dress created a breeze, bringing on a faint scent of Red Spider Lily.

"Miss Luo Mei, if Mr. Feng Gui likes you, how come he doesn't know your name? Why did he call someone else's name while he accosted you? Do you think he likes you? You really are flattering yourself." Feng Gui sat slumped on the floor, muttering nonsense, and was no longer elegant or refined.

Seeing this, Yun Canglan sighed. If only….

"Well…" Luo Mei hemmed and hawed, clutching her tattered dress, but Yun Canglan didn't give her a chance to finish her thought.

"This room is sound-proofing. How could you hear a shout from within? What's more, I was told that San Niang didn't permit anyone to enter the room, right?" The red hairpin in Yun Canglan's ears was rippling.

"You are a social climber, and knew Mr. Feng Gui, the richest man in the Can Kingdom, was in here, so you came here to seduce him. You failed so decided to frame him for rape and force him to marry you. Am I right?"

Listening to her sarcastic remarks, others finally knew the truth.

Yun Yu, the head of the Yelaixiang Brothel, was worried. She could hardly shrink from the responsibility as her employees offended Yun Canglan's ex-husband.

San Niang looked upset, but she felt more embarrassed. She strode up to Luo Mei and threw the contract in Luo Mei's face. "Luo Mei, you'd do wise to conduct yourself in a better manner from now on." Luo Mei realized she would have no choice but to be a military prostitute in the future.

The crowd left gradually as the drama ended. Yan Cangyue, who couldn't squeeze in before, finally saw what happened in the room. However, he only had eyes for the striking Yun Canglan in red and the twins in white.

"Hello, Night Phoenix, Medical Sage and Poison Sage."

Yan Cangyue couldn't believe what he saw standing before him! Night Phoenix's peerless looks and awe-inspiring style cut a fine figure of a man dressed in red. His White Jade Fan made jianghu quiver with fear, and his hairpin wo

uld save the world. The Medical Sage and Poison Sage devotedly accompanied him. The Medical Sage and Poison Sage were standing beside Night Phoenix cold, aloof and detached.

Why were Night Phoenix, the head of the Nine Prominent Figures with mighty power, and the Sages, who could revive the dead and kill people with poison, at the brothel?

The trio was used to receiving the surprising reaction like Yan Cangyue gave now.

Yun Yu felt relieved. 'Luckily, Mistress is as charming as before, and others recognize her. Is that good? Or bad? Alas.'

A client accompanied by a beautiful prostitute passing the room heard Yan Cangyue's greeting, stopped and stared Yan Cangyue up and down with a look of contempt as if looking at a fool.

"Hey man. You look green and inexperienced. You must be nouveau riche, right?"

"What?" Yan Cangyue was confused.

"Judging from the boorish look, that is not Night Phoenix. You do know it's a fashion trend."

"Huh?"

"You can buy his costume for five liang at the next intersection. The higher quality ones only cost twenty to thirty liang. The cheap fan and hairpin are available at any stall. To be honest, it is difficult to find twins, but you can pay for twins. If you can't find male twins, you can hire female twins and ask them to dress like men. Or you can ask him whether you can rent his twins."

"Oh.…"

"I presume he pays more since he looks quite dashing."

Yan Cangyue felt grateful, while Yun Yu was stunned.

Yun Yu knew the truth.

She also finally understood why others didn't seem fazed by the appearance of Night Phoenix. It turned out that they had gotten used to seeing people dressed up to look like Night Phoenix. The so-called celebrity effect was really horrible.

Or had she stayed home for long?

Yun Canglan wanted to teach that man a lesson, but he left with his favorite prostitute while boasting, "What do you know? I'm a trendsetter."

"Let's go." Yun Canglan was upset that others copied her look.

Yun Canglan lifted her foot but couldn't move. She looked down to find a pale hand clutching tightly to her sleeve, distorting the coiled feather pattern on it.

"Yun'er, Yun'er, please don't leave me.…"

Yun Canglan frowned but she didn't shake his hand off as she did before. Instead, she looked down sadly at his attractive face and eyes filled with tears.

Feng Gui was completely wasted. He grabbed his ex-wife's sleeve with a familiarity and feeling of love in his heart as if by instinct, humbly begging her.

He didn't expect that his mistake would lead to divorce.

After the divorce, he may as well have been dead. He detested his parents, concubine and that mewling baby. The courtyard without Yun'er was deserted and felt desolate. It was only after Yun'er left that he finally knew she was so important to him, and he lost himself as he had lost her.

However, he never saw Yun'er after that, except when he drank and his illusion of Yun'er standing before him with her gentle smile as she called him "husband" as usual came alive.

All people said that there were many seductively charming women at the Yelaixiang Brothel, but none of them could help him get over Yun'er. Instead, he missed Yun'er more.

"Yun'er… Yun'er…" Feng Gui called Yun Canglan's name over and over, clinging to her, but Yun Canglan was determined to leave.

She straightened her crumpled sleeve and pried Feng Gui's hand off her.

Yun Canglan was always cold-hearted.

"Mr. Feng Gui, she will never come back to you. Just give up." She had to deal with something more crucial and protect someone more important, while Feng Gui's drama was done now.

No matter how hard Feng Gui tried to hold, Yun Canglan still evaded his grasp.

"Yun Yu, Mr. Feng Gui is not to come here after tonight. I don't want to see him again."

"Yes, Mistress." Yun Yu was in the wrong, and took her orders respectfully.

As the drama came to an end, the second floor quieted again while the first floor grew noisy. Clients flirted with their favorite prostitutes, and offensive jokes and suggestions brought laughter and playfulness, all dispelling the displeasure of what happened.
