Yun Canglan slept soundly in the General's House. When she woke, it was already afternoon and Yun Qin removed the cold dishes to reheat them. Yun Qi puckered his mouth, discontented with his servant girl's dress.

Seeing Yun Qi's move, Yun Canglan scratched her hair and spoke to him: "I know! I got it! You two can wear male clothing in a few days." 'Should've asked Yun Shu and Yun Hua to serve me!' She thought. She was used to Yun Qin and Yun Qi by her side and was a little unfamiliar with Yun Shu and Yun Hua now.

Yun Qi was pleased and decided not to take his ire out on anyone.

"Mistress, Yun Hu has been waiting a while for you." A while? He had been waiting there since early morning.

Yun Canglan curled her index finger.

"What?" Yun Qi was reluctant to get closer to Yun Canglan, and even protected his chest with both hands. Yun Canglan took a small chair and tossed it at him, "You are such an unruly servant! Come and comb my hair." She couldn't meet Yun Hu with messy hair.

Yun Qi went to Yun Canglan, took a wooden comb and combed her hair reluctantly, "Mistress, what about asking Yun Shu and Yun Hua to serve you?" He had been acting the part of a servant girl for a long time, and he was afraid that he was a little bit of a sissy. Besides, Yun Shu and Yun Hua were looking forward to serve the Mistress.

Yun Canglan was unhappy at his words: "It is a great honor for you to serve me! Have I taken up too much of the time you need to chase after girls?" Yun Canglan was unhappy that Yun Qin and Yun Qi had sex with girls as teenagers.

Yun Qi realized Yun Canglan was referring to what happened in the imperial tomb of the Can Kingdom three years ago, and felt very embarrassed, "Mistress, I didn't mean it like that. I meant, Mistress, haven't you noticed I am a little bit of a sissy recently."

Yun Canglan grinned and asked, "Have you made up your mind?"

"What?" Yun Qi asked in confusion.

"To be a eunuch." Yun Canglan laughed out loud. Although Yun Qin was able to have a son to carry on their family name, it was not good for Yun Qi unable to have sex with ladies in the future.

"Ouch! That hurts!" Yun Canglan cried.

Yun Qi's face became unreadable appearing innocent as he continued, "Mistress, I meant I don't want to do women's work, such as combing hair and dressing you. I'm good at fighting enemies, but Mistress, I don't think I behave like a man anymore."

"No way! Yun Shu and Yun Hua need to serve my mother. I don't mind if you are sissy. You have great cosmetic techniques and make beautiful hair styles." Yun Canglan said smiling.

"But I mind it!" Yun Qi was near tears. Why did he have such an unkind mistress?

"Enough! This hair style looks great. Call Yun Hu in!" Yun Canglan demanded.

Yun Qi shoulders slumped in dismay but he reaffirmed his resolve as he walked to the door and called the man in. Instantly, the door opened and Yun Hu came in the room.

"Good afternoon, Mistress." Yun Hu knelt on one knee and bowed his head with great respect.

Yun Canglan stood up and bent down to get Yun Hu up, "Uncle Yun Hu, don't be so formal. Just call me Yun'er."

Yun Hu neither promised her nor refuted her. He looked her and said excitedly, "Mistress, you are finally back. We looked forward to seeing you every day. We never forgot the enmity between the royal members and us. But Mistress, since you are back, why don't you appear before the public with the identity of Yun Canglan? Why don't you tell the General and Her Ladyship your true identity?"

When he heard that Yun Canglan died for the Crown Prince, Yun Hu didn't believe the news at all. After all, Yun Canglan was omnipotent in Yun Hu's mind. Yun Hu followed the General and his wife and saw her cold body. When he saw there was no color in her cheeks, he believed that Yun Canglan died.

The General was sobbing. He hated that Yun Canglan was stubborn and disobedient, but he still loved her very much. After all, she was the only child of the General and his wife. At that moment, Yun Hu felt the General had grown much older. When he faced the Majesty and the Crown Prince, the General was not as loyal as before, but instead quite bitter.

The General's wife fainted as soon as she saw the body. After she came to, she dared not try to view the body again. It was several months later when she began to face the truth that her daughter died.

Later, Yun Shu and Yun Hua told Yun Hu that Yun Canglan wasn't dead. Yun Hu had almost told the news to the General and his wife. He managed to keep the secret for three years. Yun Canglan swallowed her humiliation and bore a heavy load for three years. Yun Hu didn't understand why Yun Canglan didn't tell her parents the truth.

Yun Canglan smiled blandly, "I'm afraid that my father still holds blind devotion to Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun. I don't know who is more important in my father's mind, his family or the royal family. I want him to see it with his own eyes how merciless the royal family is."

"Mistress, is this your true appearance?" Yun Hu asked in uncertainty. Yun Canglan's face looked like Lin Wan'er, and was greatly different from her face three years ago.

Yun Canglan nodded, "Yes, it is. I wore a skin mask three years ago. This is my true appearance." Even Huo Liuyun didn't recognize her.

When Yun Canglan was a kid, she had a pretty face. Everyone wondered what a great beauty she would be when she grew up. But when she and the Crown Prince of the Can Kingdom became engaged, she was fourteen and had a normal face. Numerous people felt pity for her. Even Huo Liuyun said he disliked Yun Canglan's looks when he was in bed with Wu Yunling, which broke Yun Canglan's heart completely.

"Mistress, what's our next step? Yun Hua told me that the Shuihuang Firm wanted to cause trouble. Are they coveting the Can Kingdo

m's territory? Mistress, you were hurt by them two years ago. Now, it's time for us to fight back!" Yun Hu said angrily. Although Yun Canglan hadn't gone back to the General's House for three years, she would send news to Yun Shu and Yun Hua regularly. Therefore, Yun Hu also knew the news.

Yun Canglan shook her head, "Not yet. There will be the reunion of the Nine Prominent Figures tomorrow. I want to confirm Mister Yao Xi's intention first. Don't worry. The Can Kingdom is my territory. No one will seize it from me." "As for the Shuihuang Firm, we're exposed and they're hidden. We have somewhat lost the initiative now. The best solution for us is to wait and see thing's change, for now. I will avenge myself for two years ago sooner or later." She continued.

Shuihuang Firm emerged three years ago, and developed quickly, growing to the same size as the Fengyun Firm. It was unable to develop so quickly if it hadn't a solid background. Moreover, since its appearance, the Shuihuang Firm set itself against the Fengyun Firm and even discovered Yun Canglan was the true master of the Fengyun Firm. Two years ago, they enticed Yun Qin and Yun Qi to leave her when the company plotted to have her killed. Unfortunately, the Buye Tower hadn't learned who the master of the Shuihuang Firm was yet.

"Uncle Yun Hu, thank you for protecting the General's House over these years, otherwise the General's House might have been destroyed." Yun Canglan appreciated Yun Hu from the bottom of her heart. It turned out that she was right to leave Yun Hu in the General's House. Yun Yajun trusted him, as the only other survivor in the battlefield of Peach Blossom Mountain.

In the past few years, Yun Hu reminded Yun Yajun of Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun's plots from time to time and resolved several risks. Yun Yajun also learned about Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun's unkindness.

Yun Hu was overwhelmed by an unexpected praise, "Mistress, you are too kind. It is my duty and my honor. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't even be here today, and there wouldn't be 'The Thirty-Six Fighters in Darkness.'"

"Uncle Yun Hu, I know The Thirty-Six Fighters have suffered a lot in the past three years. I will avenge all of you soon!" Yun Canglan stated confidently. Three years ago, she was not strong enough. But now, she was ready.

"Mistress, what are we going to do next?" Yun Hu asked. The Thirty-Six Fighters in Darkness was a time bomb in the Can Kingdom. It had gradually controlled all the military forces around Can City. The most important task of The Thirty-Six Fighters in Darkness was to protect the General's House.

Yun Canglan raised her head, feeling hot and stuffy: "I received news that someone wanted to kill me. Now I'm living in the General's House. I'm afraid I may cause problems for the General's House. Your job is to protect everyone in the General's House." "The Grand Preceptor has some secrets moves too. It seems that someone has given directions to Wu Ci. But it doesn't matter. Things are under control." Yun Canglan continued. The Grand Preceptor was just a hired gun, and she was able to have him take actions.

"The reunion ball for the Nine Prominent Figures is tomorrow!" Yun Canglan concluded. She would confirm which role Mister Yao Xi played in the Can Kingdom, a hired gun or the player. "We will start our plan after tomorrow." She determined. Her plan started with the Grand Preceptor.

"Yes, Mistress!" Yun Hu bowed his head respectfully, the confidence emanating from Yun Canglan reassuring him.

Between heaven and hell, Yun Canglan was the only one qualified to look down on the world.

"By the way, have you heard any news of grandfather in recent years?" Yun Canglan inquired. Her grandfather, like an old naughty boy, hadn't come home in months.

Yun Hu nodded, "The old General has been traveling the Feng Kingdom with an old friend. He returns home every six months and sends news monthly."

"Got it!" Yun Canglan didn't understand why her grandfather liked the Feng Kingdom so much. She planned to go to the Feng Kingdom when she was free.

"Okay, Uncle Yun Hu, we are finished here. You can go. Remember, act normal, and don't draw my father and mother's attention. I don't want my father to know." Yun Canglan was afraid that her father would try to stop her.

Yun Hu understood Yun Canglan's misgivings, "Mistress, if you have any trouble, please call me."

"Okay." Yun Canglan consented. Yun Hu bowed and left the room.

As soon as Yun Hu left, Yun Qin came in with a basket of dishes. Seeing the food, Yun Canglan was immediately excited, "I'm starving. Hurry, hurry! I could eat them all!" She acted as if she hadn't eat anything in days. It was exhausting to be a leader!

Yun Qin set the dishes out one by one, saying: "Why didn't you sleep last night? You came to my roof to enjoy the cool air and turned it to a turmoil! Mistress, you will grow old faster if you stay up late!" He was sleepy now because she had woken him!

When the meal was served, Yun Canglan fell to it eagerly, "I'm still very young. It doesn't matter if I stay up late." She was only 17.

When Yun Canglan was busy eating, Yun Qi came in and reported cheerfully, "Mistress, the 10th Prince of the Ling Kingdom is looking for you."

"Damn it! I haven't finished my lunch yet!" Yun Canglan banged the bowl onto the table and stared at Yun Qi angrily, 'You did that on purpose!'

Yun Qi turned his head away, trying to seem unconcerned, but he kept to himself, 'I am on purpose!'

Yun Qin was more mature than Yun Qi, and asked in confusion, "Mister Yang? Why is he here today? The reunion of the Nine Prominent Figures is tomorrow."

"He is here looking for a fight! Call him in!" Yun Canglan commanded. Yun Qi left chuckling at Yang Gezhi's plight as Yun Canglan was both starving and sleepy now.
