Yan Cangyue's guards came in a hurry to collect him, and the Yelaixiang Brothel gradually quietened. Customers went back to their fun and private business with the many ladies.

Yun Canglan was growing bored already and leaned on the rail up on the third floor looking down into the main hall.

Fate favored Yun Canglan it seemed, whenever she was bored, something happened.

A sharp screaming shattered the quiet in the main hall on the first floor. Doors opened, and customers poked their heads out to inspect the drama, and once more the hall was bustling with noise and excitement.

The brothel was unusually noisy tonight.

"San Niang, why aren't you out here to receive me, sister? I'm here to visit you." A woman, about San Niang's age, entered Yelaixiang Brothel. She held a handkerchief in one hand and rested another hand on her hip, chattering away. When people saw her dress, they decided that San Niang was not overdressed at all.

Next to the woman was a slim lady with snow-white shoulders wearing pink, that every man there couldn't help but admire as they drooled. She wore a veil; thus only her eyes were visible, but one glance was enough to bewitch a man.

Her eyes were as pure as a spring. Innocence mixed with her seductive look had middle-aged men falling in love.

San Niang wiped sweat from her forehead, looking at Yun Canglan and Yun Yu cautiously. She didn't understand why all the trouble was happening tonight while her boss was here to inspect the brothel operations.

Yun Yu winked at San Niang as she went downstairs, to the woman.

"Oh! Yue Niang, how are you? I haven't seen you in a few days. Why are you available today? Did the Wanhong Brothel get shut down? Are you looking for a job?" San Niang said mockingly to the woman.

Yue Niang stood with her hands on her hips and complained, "San Niang, You are always so mean! But I'm afraid the Yelaixiang Brothel will be the one shutting down." She pointed to the lady next to her, "Do you know who she is? Her name is Tao'er; she is the new top showgirl at the Wanhong Brothel. We're here to challenge the Yelaixiang Brothel. Your top showgirl and four second-class showgirls are over-rated. San Niang, will you accept our challenge?"

Yun Canglan cocked her head and raised her eyebrows. 'How dare they challenge the Yelaixiang Brothel!'

Everyone knew the Yelaixiang Brothel was a part of the Fengyun Firm, so challenging them meant challenging the Fengyun Firm. Although the Yelaixiang Brothel dominated the market in all seven kingdoms, there were other brothels in business. The challenge from the Wanhong Brothel must be part of a larger scheme.

The only company in the world that would dare challenge the Fengyun Firm was the Shuihuang Firm.

"Yun Yu, I want to know whether the Wanhong Brothel is part of the Shuihuang Firm, and I need the answer in 15 minutes." Yun Canglan demanded.

"Yes, Mistress!" Yun Yu said as she left. Yun Canglan, Yun Qin and Yun Qi continued to watch the drama from the third floor.

"Challenge?

obsessively as if she bewitched them.

When Yun Canglan heard the first note, from her room on the third floor, she knew Hua Shang, the best lyre player Yelaixiang Brothel, had lost. It didn't matter though, she hadn't shown up yet.

"Bang!"

The door flew open, standing in the room, a man appeared like a ghost.

He was quite confident and looked handsome in green. His black hair was tied back with string. There was a trace of a surprised smile in the cold, serious depth of his onyx eyes.

"Canglan...are...are you looking...for me?"

Though Shui Minghan dared not approach her, he was excited to see her. He looked at Yun Canglan afraid she was sick of him and watched her cautiously as a naughty boy caught.

She touched her face, looking at Shui Minghan strangely. Yun Canglan wore a face mask, why did he look at her as though he recognized her?

Shui Minghan smiled wryly, guessing her thoughts, he explained, "Canglan, no matter how you disguise yourself, I will recognize you at first sight." He used to see her with his eyes, but now he saw her with his heart.

Yun Canglan pursed her lips, "I need your help." She wondered when Shui Minghan learned how to sweet talk.

Yun Qin and Yun Qi felt sickened by Shui Minghan's words.

Shui Minghan didn't pay attention to them at all, but spoke to Yun Canglan full of happiness, "What can I do for you, Canglan?" He stepped closer to Yun Canglan, catching the familiar scent of Red Spider Lily radiating from Yun Canglan, and felt contented.

He feelings now only reconfirmed his conclusion, he was unable to extricate himself from loving Yun Canglan.

Yun Canglan looked at Shui Minghan with the indifference as if looking at a stranger, "Act a scene of a play out with me!" She urged.

Yun Canglan admitted herself she could be very vindictive. If someone held a grudge, she would avenge herself immediately, or keep it in mind and seek revenge at the appropriate time. Now was the time for her revenge for an event that happened two years ago.
