The news that the Can Kingdom's General Huguo, Yun Yajun, was assassinated, lay unconscious and dying, spread through Can City and then the rest of the Can Kingdom in less than a day.

The world believed it because the imperial physicians confirmed the news.

In the Can Kingdom, the news of General Huguo's illness left some people happy and others worried.

At the Yushi Restaurant

The din of the past few days calmed today, and the delicious smell of food wafted through the restaurant, but no one found the food tasty.

"Li Er, eat your food, such delicious food may only be available to us a few times."

"Alas, when the General Huguo passes the Can Kingdom will come to an end."

"The Yun family has guarded the Can Kingdom for a hundred years, but there are no descendants. Thus, it will come to an end sooner or later."

"What are you talking about? What about the General Shenyong?"

"That doesn't help, he supports the Grand Preceptor. Everyone in Can City know that, except the Crown Prince and His Majesty."

"It looks as if there will be a change of hands in the Can Kingdom."

At the imperial palace of the Can Kingdom.

Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun happily played chess, faces aglow.

"Father, you have heard the good news today."

"Did you, Liuyun?" "Ahhhh."

Huo Liuyun's hand was steady as he dropped a piece with a snap, "Yun Yajun is critically ill. You can just take back the rest of his military power, father."

Huo Yang nodded, holding a piece and wondering where to put it, "Umm, you will be in charge of his third of the military power, Liuyun. Xue Ying's power cannot extend farther, lest he become a second Yun Yajun."

"Thank you, father." he said, smiling, "It's right not to kill Yun Yajun now. Use him to pin down Grand Preceptor. When both of them are defeated and hurt, we reap the benefits without striking a blowing."

"Ahhh, your scheme is better." Huo Yang smiled with relief, "I was afraid Yun Canglan would be your downfall. I never thought you would give up everything, including a relationship. Liuyun, you haven't disappointed me."

Huo Liuyun looked down to hide his grief, "I'm willing to risk anything for the Can Kingdom."

He did not give up everything, nor did he abandon his love. When Yun'er died, he knew that she was the air for him, and he could not live without her. But Yun'er was dead, and the last three year he had spent suffocating.

"Father, " Huo Liuyun looked up with a grave look, "my men report that the Grand Preceptor has been very active lately. Besides, with his opponent, Yun Yajun, seriously ill, he may not behave for


Huo Yang nodded, a grave look on his face, "Yes, we will have to get rid of him, too. But Wu Ci does not hold a military power like Yun Yajun. He has many followers in the court, but he can not do much yet, relax son."

With another snap, another piece was put on the board. Huo Yang looked up at Huo Liuyun, "Did the Fengyun Firm not act?"

Huo Liuyun half squinted, thinking of the beautiful yet indifferent lady. He was a little resentful of Feng Yun'er, that somehow she overlapped the girl in his heart, little by little. Huo Liuyun shook his head, forcing himself to be sober, "The Fengyun Firm is contesting the Shuihuang Firm. The Shuihuang Firm hit the Fengyun Firm across the board. Now Feng Yun'er is in the thick of it and doesn't have time to take care of our affairs."

Huo Yang gave a pleased nod, "Feng Yun'er is unappreciative, maybe we can get her on our side. Since that Shuihuang Firm dares to defy the Fengyun Firm, its owner should be capable. Liuyun, if you have the opportunity, make friends with the owner."

"Okay, I will." Huo Liuyun nodded, "Father, rest assured, I will develop the Can Kingdon into a great power on the two continents."

In the secret chamber within the Grand Preceptor's House.

Mister Yao Xi was still dressed elegantly, fanning himself with a fan, the breeze lifting the hair by his ear. Opposite him sat the Grand Preceptor Wu Ci, Wu Ci's eldest son Wu Yunqi and the General Shenyong Xue Ying.

"Grand Preceptor, that Mister is angry." The pleasant voice was as gentle as a spring, with a hint of authority.

Wu Ci stiffened, but looked at Mister Yao Xi with dignity, "Please tell that Mister, Yun Yajun is now critically ill. One-third of the Can Kingdom's military power is immobile, I control one third, and the Crown Prince stands only a third of a chance. Besides, if I sent an army, Huo Yang and Huo Liuyun wouldn't have time to return. The imperial palace has only a few thousand guards all under the command of Xue Ying. So, what is it that Mister is worried about?"

Mister Yao Xi glanced over at Wu Ci with a bored expression, "Grand Preceptor, that Mister is not angry you broke from the plan, but that you acted rashly. Since Yun Yajun is critically ill, that's ok. If you fail this time though, I'm afraid that Mister will get really mad."

Wu Ci held his head high, "Please put a good word in for me, Mister Yao Xi. Tell that Mister to rest assured, since I dared act without authorization, I have made all the preparations. I certainly won't break the plan, but advance it. I can give him what I have promised in advance then."
