Carrying some baggage, Yun Canglan, Yun Qin and Yun Qi appeared at the gate of the General's House early the next morning.

An older servant opened the gate to clean the steps. He stared blankly for some time at the beautiful woman who sat with her head resting in hands covered in morning dewdrops, and the twin servants sitting sound asleep next to her. He threw his hands up and the broom went flying as he rushed back shouting, "Ghosts! Your Lordship, Your Ladyship, there are ghosts at the gate!"

"Damn!" Yun'er stood up muttering, straightened her crumpled dress beating the dust on it. "Now I am a ghost? Come on, I'm so beautiful. How could he think I am a ghost?"

Yun Qi stretched his aching back, rubbing his eyes, "You look so much like Her Ladyship, so he mistakenly thought you were her daughter. Mistress, I don't understand why you don't see the obvious."

Yun'er kicked him angrily. "I look like her, so what, I'm her daughter."

"But you haven't said anything." Yun Qin, stood up, straightened his clothes and then helped Yun Canglan with hers.

As he finished, he heard the clatter of people coming closer. Soon, Lin Wan'er, accompanied by Yun Shu and Yun Hua, were there. Yun Yajun was worried about his wife and carefully protected her.

"Yun'er, it's you! I knew you would come." Lin Wan'er was elated seeing Feng Yun'er. "Zhong said that you were asleep out here. Why didn't you knock on the door?"

Yun Canglan pouted. "I offended the Crown Prince yesterday, and left the palace at midnight. I didn't want to disturb you, so I waited until dawn."

Lin Wan'er blushed and Yun Yajun felt awkward. "Well, you deceived His Majesty yesterday. Even if you are the proprietor of the Fengyun Firm, you're still an ordinary person. You shouldn't have set yourself against the royal court and tricked the Crown Prince." Yun Yajun was somewhat angry, but obviously, he spoiled Yun'er.

Yun'er bowed to her father obediently, "I am sorry, I will play safe from now on. Father, mother, I have no place to live. Could I.…"

Yun Yajun cocked his head, peering sideways, "As the proprietor of the Fengyun Firm, you have no place to live? If I am correct, the world famous Youjia Inn belongs to the Fengyun Firm, right?"

Lin Wan'er held Yun Canglan's hand excitedly, "Great! You stay here as long as you like. Although you are my foster daughter, I will treat you as my daughter."

Lin Wan'er's hospitality made Yun Canglan feel warm. Three years had passed. She longed to feel her mother's love again and to bicker with her father.

"Thank you." Yun Canglan gave Yun Qin and Yun Qi a look and Yun Qin took a round box from the parcel and handed it to Yun Canglan, while Yun Qi stood next to her holding a slightly longer box.

"When I took you as my foster parents, I didn't present any gifts to you. I will make it up now." Yun Canglan opened the box and handed it to Lin Wan'er. "This is the Tianchen Jade, which can exorcise evil spirits, detect poisons, maintain beauty and keep youth. More importantly, it will improve your health, if you are often sick. It eliminates some disasters. I hope you like it."

Lin Wan'er received the gift excitedly. She had seen much of life, so she had heard of the Tianchen Jade. It was said that it came from the deep marsh unsoiled and absorbed the qualities of the world, doing no harm to the human body. Legend said there was an immortal living in each one, and it would protect the wearer. There were only two Tianchen Jades in the world.

Yun Canglan took the long box from Yun Qi. As soon as she opened it, a cold wind rushed out.

"Cold Wind Sword? Amazing!" Yun Yajun squealed with amazement. He practiced martial arts, so he knew the Cold Wind Sword well.

"This is for me?" Yun Yajun took the Cold Wind Sword gingerly, with trembling hands.

According to the legend, the Cold Wind Sword was cast from a piece of 1, 000-year-old black iron by Jian Wuxin the sword maker. After it was finished, Jian Wuxin offered his own blood in a sacrifice and named it Cold Wind Sword, because one could feel the cold wind it gave off if they were within three meters. Throughout history, every owner of the Cold Wind Sword was a hero of the seven kingdoms across the two continents, and Yun Yajun was now its fourth owner.

Yun Yajun cherished his treasure with pure joy.

The Fengyun Firm was fabulously rich, but Yun Yajun hadn't expected such rare treasures as Tianchen Jade and Cold Wind Sword.

Yun Canglan saw Lin Wan'er and Yun Yajun liked her gifts very much.

Lin Wan'er happily held her hands. "Come, I will arrange a yard for you. Tell me which yard you like. I will ask Yun Hu to clean it."

"Mother, I like the yard where I got changed last time. It is very quiet." Yun Canglan answered. Since she returned, she would live in her own yard.

Lin Wan'er didn't expect that. She stopped, glanced at Yun Canglan and continued to walk forward. "Okay. I will ask Yun Hu to clean it. My daughter Yun Canglan lived there, and you are also my daughter. I'm glad that you like it."

"Hey, why do you come out?" A sharp voice ruined the serene beauty. Yun Canglan despised seeing Zhi

Liu who looked vulgar in her red and green outfit approach. She clearly felt that Lin Wan'er's hand became cold.

Without looking to Lin Wan'er, Zhi Liu went to Yun Yajun, held his arm, and rubbed against it with her breasts.

Yun Canglan winked at Yun Shu and Yun Hua. They stepped forward to support Lin Wan'er, and Yun Canglan walked up to Zhi Liu with a gentle and sincere smile.

"Hello, Lady Zhi Liu. I have also brought a gift to you."

Upon hearing it, Zhi Liu got excited. She came as she heard that Feng Yun'er, the proprietor of the Fengyun Firm, had presented lavish gifts to Yun Yajun and the humble Lin Wan'er.

Zhi Liu grinned radiantly, "Well, thank you so much. Where is my gift?"

Yun Canglan gave a sign and Yun Qin took a small box from his sleeve. The box was dark and decorated with gold rims. With a lifelike pattern of golden snake on it, it looked pretty valuable.

Zhi Liu looked straight at the box and couldn't wait to see what was inside.

Yun Canglan opened the box slowly and took out a piece of gold-plated paper.

Zhi Liu snatched it anxiously, but she got a nasty shock when she saw the words on it.

Yun Canglan laughed heartlessly. "Lady Zhi Liu, this is a 20% discount coupon for Meiye Brothel under the Fengyun Firm. I didn't know you were my father's concubine when you went there last time. Please forgive my men for their ignorance. Show them this coupon next time you go there, and they will give you a 20% discount. It is valid up to one year and can be used throughout all the seven kingdoms. Enjoy yourself."

Yun Canglan kept speaking as the color drained from Zhi Liu.

"You…"

"What's wrong? It's not enough? Lady Zhi Liu, you don't want me to lose money in business. I have never given a 20% discount to any of the princesses of the seven kingdoms. You are the only one in the world. You know, the rent boys in Meiye Brothel are excellent. They smell good and can satisfy you in bed, true?"

"You..." Obviously, Yun Canglan was humiliating Zhi Liu deliberately. Zhi Liu tried to deny it and in tears, "General, she is framing me. I don't know what she is talking about. She humiliates me and ruins my fair name. General, help me…"

Yun Yajun shook off Zhi Liu's hand in disgust and said angrily, "Shame on you. How dare you go to that place?" Yun Yajun knew what Yun Canglan meant. While he marveled at Yun Canglan's cleverness, he decided to put on a show.

A depressed and weeping Zhi Liu cried, "She framed me to ruin my good name. I don't want to live…"

Yun Canglan took a step forward, "Lady Zhi Liu, did I make a mistake?"

Zhi Liu cried more bitterly. "I feel too much shame to live…"

Yun Canglan patted her head, pretending to be nice, "Sorry, Lady Zhi Liu. I was wrong. I should have given your gift privately. Anyway, as my father's concubine, you can't go to the brothel directly. Sorry, it's my fault. I will plead with my father."

With her back to Zhi Liu, Yun Canglan smiled at Yun Yajun, pretending to blame herself, "Father, this is my fault. I didn't see Lady Zhi Liu in the brothel. My men saw her. My mistake. Please do not blame Lady Zhi Liu. His Majesty married her to you, and it would embarrass him if others knew about it."

Zhi Liu stopped crying, pondering what Yun Canglan said.

Holding back his laughter, Yun Yajun pretended to be angry, "It makes sense. What do you think I should do?"

Zhi Liu was relieved.

Yun Canglan blinked. "Why not ask the person in charge of the Meiye Brothel for the truth? After all, it is related to the emperor's name. We can't wrong Lady Zhi Liu."

Zhi Liu was scared. The person in charge of the Meiye Brothel would tell everything, she wanted to hide. If she knew that the Meiye Brothel belonged to the Fengyun Firm, she would not have gone there. No, if she knew that Feng Yun'er was the boss of the Fengyun Firm, she would not have gone there.

Yun Yajun pretended to nod seriously. "You're right. Do it."

"Wait!" Zhi Liu knelt to Yun Yajun pale, "It's my fault. Please divorce me." If Yun Canglan asked the person in charge of the Meiye Brothel what happened, His Majesty would be mad and have her beheaded.

Yun'er strode back.

"I'll leave it to you then, father." She snickered.

Yun Yajun realized that his foster daughter had two sides to her. She was full of evil ideas and anyone provoking her would suffer.

Yun Yajun coughed, "So you admit that you had fun with rent boys in the Meiye Brothel?"

Zhi Liu gritted her teeth, "Yes."

"Good. Since this is my family affair, I will resolve it my way. Zhi Liu, you will marry the guard Wu Shuren after I divorce you." Yun Yajun didn't expect this to happen so quickly, even though he had promised Wu Shuren.

Zhi Liu had no choice but to agree. She didn't want this family affair to become a state one. While she was crying, the honest guard took her away.

Looking blankly at Zhi Liu's back, Lin Wan'er finally smiled happily, but she didn't understand why Yun Yajun divorced Zhi Liu after Yun'er said something.

While walking to the house with Lin Wan'er, Yun'er looked back and smiled at Yun Yajun. "Father, do you like this gift?"
