As soon as Yun Canglan finished speaking, Yun Qin and Yun Qi behind her suddenly flew at he impostor Night Phoenix like a bolt of lightening.

The fake "Medical Sage and Poison Sage" joined the fray. The "Mister Night Phoenix" and "Medical Sage and Poison Sage" failed immediately against Yun Qin and Yun Qi.

Mister Zi Zhu and Mister Yao Yan moved closer to Yun Canglan unnoticed by anyone. Mister Wu Hen held his sword tighter, closely watching the others. Mister Liu Huo and Mister Jue Sha kept their eyes on the rest of the gentlemen, leaving the battle to Yun Qin and Yun Qi.

Within minutes, Yun Qin and Yun Qi escorted those three fakes to Yun Canglan.

Yun Canglan reclined on the sofa, greeting everyone as if she was the host, "Everybody, please have a seat. You must be tired after such an ordeal. I'm in a good mood today and want to invite you to enjoy a drama."

Everyone believed now that the one relaxing on the sofa like a lazy cat yet full of vigor was the real Mister Night Phoenix. Everyone found his seat and sat down, watching the fake Mister Night Phoenix and Medical Sage and Poison Sage with disdain.

"You are so mean to use poison!" The impostor Night Phoenix yelled resentfully.

Yun Qi smacked the back of his head reminding him, "What, are you kidding? I'm the Poison Sage! Why wouldn't I use poison? Are you guys idiots? Since you say you are Mister Night Phoenix, you can ask your Poison Sage to detox you!"

The fake Medical Sage and Poison Sage looked as though they'd see death.

No one in the world could detox the Poison Sage's poison. They were screwed!

At Yun Canglan's side, Mister Yao Yan sat staring at her, his eyes showed his affection. There was a gentle smile of satisfaction on his pretty face. He was completely enamored with her.

Mister Yao Yan took a grape, peeled off the skin, and handed it to Yun Canglan. Yun Canglan stared at the three fakes unenthusiastically, while taking the grape from him with her mouth. Her red lips touched his warm fingers accidentally. These movements were nothing to Yun Canglan and Mister Yao Yan, but everyone else was taken aback by their intimate display.

They stared at the two men incredulously, deep in thought.

Yun Canglan noticed the looks, gave a short cough and cast a stern look in the direction of Mister Yao Yan, saying, "Let's stop discussing trivial matters and come to the point."

'Is it the reunion of the Nine Prominent Figures or the meeting to identify Mister Night Phoenix?' Everyone wondered.

Yun Canglan stared down at the three impostors coldly as they trembled with fear. "I am privileged to be granted the position as top of the Nine Prominent Figures. But I never thought someone would disguise as me. Okay! I take it as your adoration, but how dare you disguise as me to attend the reunion of the Nine Prominent Figures! Hey, I thought to myself, this impostor Night Phoenix is either extremely brave or extremely foolish."

The impostor Night Phoenix looked up at Yun Canglan with stubbornness behind the fear in his eyes, "I'm not convinced. Why are you Mister Night Phoenix because you say so? I say I'm the real Mister Night Phoenix!"

Yun Canglan shook her head, "What a shame! You are an unrepentant man. Fine! I'll let you know why!"

She unfolded her White Jade Fan slowly, and the name "Night Phoenix" was exposed, which was kind of funny, but nobody dared laugh at that moment.

Yun Canglan stated, "People described Mister Night Phoenix as "He cuts a fine figure of a man dressed in red. His White Jade Fan makes jianghu quiver with fear, and his hairpin will save the world. The Medical Sage and Poison Sage devotedly accompany him." Therefore, red clothes, hairpin, White Jade Fan, as well as a Medical Sage and Poison Sage had become Mister Night Phoenix's symbols. Today, I'll let you know why you are the fake Mister Night Phoenix."

There was only one Mister Night Phoenix in the world, and nobody could disguise as him.

"You said your red robe is made of Liufang Brocade*. Do you know what my red robe is made of?"

(*TN: Liufang Brocade is a kind of precious textile.)

Yun Canglan looked at the fake Night Phoenix scornfully and was pleased at his embarrassed look, "My red robe is made of fire fox skin." There were only a few fire foxes in the world, and Yun Canglan was able to wear the robe made of fire fox skin. This was enough to prove her wealth.

"As for my hairpin, " Yun Canglan raised her hand and twining her finger around with her fringes, "The fringes on the hairpin are made of Yuxin Silk which resists water and fire. When I wear these fringes, no poison can harm me." Actually it was the fringes which truly represented Mister Night Phoenix. "As for the White Jade Fan, " Yun Canglan unfolded her fan, which gleamed, "Cold jade means nothing to me. Do you really believe that my fan is made of jade? Naive! It is made from the bones of a boa that lived for 3, 000 years. So, my fan is also called Bone Fan."

Yun Canglan bent down closer to the fake Night Phoenix asking him viciously. "Mister Night Phoenix, what do you think of my equipment?"

She had not mentioned the differences between the real Medical Sage and Poison Sage and the fake ones yet.

The fake Night Phoenix sat on the floor, head bowed, quivering with fear. He didn't even have the courage to raise his head. He suddenly realized that he was just a nonentity in front of Yun Canglan. He didn't have the courage to look her in the eyes, all he could do was to kneel before Yun Canglan and beg for her forgiveness.

"I...I..." He stammered.

"Since you dared to disguise as me, you must pay the price." Yun Canglan said indifferently as though she was asking

a stranger for directions. Nobody could know her true feelings. Yun Canglan turned to Mister Zi Zhu, pointed at the fake Medical Sage and Poison Sage and said impatiently, "Mister Zi Zhu, you were poisoned by this fake Poison Sage. I'll leave these two to you." After hearing her words, Mister Zi Zhu was elated. He picked them up and went outside. After throwing them to his servants outside, he went back to the room.

He didn't want to miss the best part of the drama.

"I'm not the kind of man who goes in for intrigues." She enjoyed intrigues in other identities. "I don't care what schemes or intrigues you have, you are out of luck as you offended me. I will never allow anyone to get the impression of me!" Yun Canglan cast a murderous glare at the fake Night Phoenix.

She wouldn't ask him whether someone else had gotten him to do this or who it was, as she wouldn't give him any leeway at all.

The fake Mister Night Phoenix was shaking with fear; his face was a ghostly pale. He finally realized that the man in front of him was the real Mister Night Phoenix. He was unable to explain anything now.

"Take it easy! I won't kill you." Yun Canglan reassured him gently. Her words gave the fake Night Phoenix a bit of hope. He raised his head looking into Yun Canglan's eyes with his desire to live.

"However, I'm a man of principle. I can let you go, but I need three things from you." Her smile was like the Red Spider Lily blooming in hell.

The fake Night Phoenix nodded his head eagerly, "Anything you want, I'll give them to you, money, ladies, anything. Just name it. As long as I have them, I'll give them to you for sure..." He hadn't expected Mister Night Phoenix to let him go and was excited. He didn't notice Yun Canglan's wicked smile.

The fake Night Phoenix was close to hell.

Yun Canglan grinned and said, "First, I want your seventh cervical vertebra."

After she made her demand, Yun Qi's smile turned bloodthirsty and he pulled a dagger from nowhere, the metal gleaming in the light.

"No...no...no..." The fake Night Phoenix was petrified; the fear in his face gave him the look of a dead man.

When the rest of the gentlemen had ghastly, horrified looks when they heard Yun Canglan.

"Mister Night Phoenix, that is too cruel to do!" Mister Yang's bland smile fell and he stared at Yun Canglan frowning, but he also had a look of uncertainty.

Yun Canglan smiled wickedly still, and her scent of the Red Spider Lily became even stronger. "I'm not a good man. He is inferior in skills, so his life and death all depend on me. Mister Yang, are you trying to protect him?" 'You are not qualified to protect him.' She thought.

Mister Yang briefly glanced at the frightened impostor Night Phoenix, shaking his head as he withdrew finally.

"Mister Night Phoenix, why not just kill him?" Mister Yao Xi was the only man who wasn't looking at Yun Canglan as though she were a cruel person.

Yun Canglan frowned, "I didn't expect you to have a heart of gold!" She muttered as she chuckled and continued, "I'd love to hear him screaming. Is that a good enough reason?"

Mister Yao Xi rubbed his nose but said no more.

"No...please don't kill me! I...I...I'll tell you everything I know! I'll tell you..."

Yun Canglan scratched her ear saying nothing. She was not interested in what he had to say.

Yun Qi picked up the fake Night Phoenix, ignoring his cries as he pierced his back with the dagger mercilessly. An awful scream singed the sky.

"Ah!"

Mister Feng Gui closed his eyes, unable to stand to watch.

Mister Yao Yan still stared at Yun Canglan as if it was a date without the screaming or blood.

Mister Yang turned his away, his signature smile gone.

The spectators along the shore outside buried themselves in the bet. They stretched their necks looking at the Fengyun Restaurant, waiting for the real Mister Night Phoenix. A heartrending cry suddenly came from the Fengyun Restaurant and scared them out of their wits.

Hearing shrieks and murderous screams, they thought the real Mister Night Phoenix had won and they would finally find out who won the bet. But the screaming was so shrill that fear descended on everyone.

Huo Liuyun was drinking. When he heard the cries, he paused, his soft eyes turning sharp.

'Mister Night Phoenix, you really are something!' He thought.

Yan Cangyue stood on the deck of his boat looking around. He almost fell into the lake when he heard the blood curdling screams. 'Although the man is indeed hateful and unruly to disguise as Mister Night Phoenix, his death is completely unnecessary!'

The unbearable heartache he felt was overwhelming. He clenched his fists tightly, frowning in anguish. He wanted to run to the Fengyun Restaurant to see if the man was okay.

At the moment, he was in no mood to wonder whether he was gay or not. All he knew was that he was worried about the man and wanted to protect him. He regretted not being able to prevent him from going to the Fengyun Restaurant. Damn it! He had a crush on him!

Inside the Fengyun Restaurant, the light smell of blood mixed with the heavier fragrance of Red Spider Lily, sweet and cold like hell.

The fake Night Phoenix was limp. His seventh cervical vertebra was taken, paralyzing him. Now he was good-for-nothing.

"Ah...ah..." The fake Night Phoenix whimpered feebly in pain as he lay on the ground. With no strength left, he was unable to cry or scream louder. A bloody bone was thrown on the ground beside him, and blood stained the floor.

Looking down at him, Yun Canglan had a look of indifference and immediately turned away disgusted. Her voice was cold as she named the second cost, "Second, I want your skin."
