As daylight broke, the dewdrops sparkled as the light touched them, and the breeze blew the thick green leaves making it a fresh and comfortable morning, for the beginning of a hot summer day. On the horizon, the sun was surrounded by growing clouds, as if it would rain.

Footsteps hurrying along the path shattered the peaceful quiet in the yard where Yun Qin and Yun Qi kept watch all night.

It was Yun Shu, Yun Hua and Lei Tianyan who disappeared the night before.

Lei Tianyan's outfit, once a vibrant red was covered in dirt, rips and disheveled. There were strands of hair sticking to his face, and he looked confused and anxious, without his usual charm.

He looked worried as he walked into the yard helped by Yun Shu and Yun Hua. He clutched a delicate cloth bag close to him, protectively.

Yun Qin approached him, and checked his pulse. Fortunately, he only had a few bruises, and his bones and muscles were intact.

"Yun Yu's people found Mister Yao Yan on the outskirts of town, where he was being held, hostage. Luckily, Yun Lie's people responded quickly and were able to rescue him." Yun Shu said, in a matter, a fact manner, like last night was an ordinary event, but they knew Mister Yao Yan might have been killed if they had arrived later than they had.

Lei Tianyan asked in a weak voice, "How's Yun'er?" his disconcerted face full of anxiety. "Where's Yun'er?" 'Last night, of all nights, why did it have to be last night? She will die without being detoxed. Yun'er needed me.' In his heart, he blamed himself.

Yun Qin looked at the ground, and Lei Tianyan became more apprehensive, "There is something wrong with Yun'er? Isn't there?"

Yun Qin and Yun Qi were quiet. They knew precisely how Mister Yao Yan felt about their Mistress, and that he would be embarrassed. So what should they tell him?

The grief was evident on Lei Tianyan's face, "No, Yun'er will be fine, no..." He said, feeling guilty.

He paled as he threw his arms up, pushing Yun Qin off him, and flung the door to Canglan's room open before anyone realized his intent.

He stood in the doorway, his mouth agape in shock at what he saw.

The fine cloth bag he had been clutching fell and the delicate lotus seeds within clattered as they spilled everywhere.

Even more, grief for him, the room was full of the enigmatic mood after sex.

For a moment, Lei Tianyan thought he was in the wrong room.

In that moment, he heard the sound of a heartbreaking.

Something wet, warm and salty rolled down his cheeks.

He was crying.

Canglan rose, her emotionless face contorted, and for the first time, she was overwhelmed as she looked at Lei Tianyan. She never expected him to burst in and see everything.

Yun Qin, Yun Qi, Yun Shu, and Yun Hua stood helplessly outside the room, feeling Lei Tianyan's grief. They were all serious instead of their usual laughing selves.

Lei Tianyan stared at Canglan, tears rolling out of his eyes, a look of disbelief and heartache on his face.

Every full moon night he had held her, detoxified her, and he thought, over time, she would come to see his love for her and return it. He was not like the others; Huo Liuyun, Shui Minghan, or even Qi Yuntian. She was the center of his universe, she was his life, and he would never betray or deceive her.

The other day, while happily looking at the painting Canglan drew of him, he thought she had finally begun to see him and was willing to give and receive love. It turned out he was wrong.

His only concern w

hen he was kidnapped was for her. He had spent the whole time hating himself for his incompetence while wondering, 'Has the poison attack come? Is she suffering? Can she resist the effects?'

She hadn't suffered at all; she just took another lover. What a fool he was.

He is just a convenience to her.

Canglan felt a lump in her throat when she saw Lei Tianyan, and it was a long time before she could speak, "Tian...yan..."

Lei Tianyan shuddered suddenly, and hastily stopped his crying. He struggled, forcing himself to smile, a lopsided sad looking smile.

"So-sorry...Yun'er...I...was hurt...so...it... umm... It hurts...I'm...sorry..."

He brought his arm to his face rubbing his tears dry with a ripped sleeve. His untidy hair made him look even more disconcerted, but he kept smiling, which was rather pitiful. "I...hee-hee...look at me...my clothes...They're a mess...I...I'll go and change them..." He faltered.

"Tianyan..." Canglan called after him, but he kept going, not responding to her call.

Watching as the figure withdrew, Canglan felt an ache in her heart and placed her hand over it.

After he had gone, Canglan put on a robe, and still barefoot she went to pick up the delicate cloth bag in the doorway. The bag was covered with dirt and dried blood, but it was full of fresh lotus seeds.

Yesterday he went to pick lotus seeds for her, just because she had complained, "It's hot, and I am inflamed."

He picked the lotus seeds himself, just for her, and he clung to this cloth bag after he was caught. What a fool!

Yun Qin and Yun Qi prepared Canglan's toiletries, while Yun Shu and Yun Hua helped her dress. Everyone was busy doing something, except Yang Gezhi, who sat there ignored.

In the time it took to have a cup of tea, Canglan finished freshening up. She turned to Yang Gezhi, "Your Highness, what happened last night is now over, I'll do what I promised. Yun Qi, help the tenth Prince freshen up, and send for a carriage to return him to the Palace."

Lei Tianyan carelessly wandered like a chicken without its head after he left Canglan's yard. It was as though he was in a daze, not knowing where to go or stop, and so he continued until he had left the General's House and was out on the bustling streets, and had meandered into a dark alley with no road.

At the end of the alleyway, he was at a loss of what he should do and stood blankly staring at the wall in front of him.

"Wow! Even when I end up lost, I'm so lucky that I find a Beauty." The raspy voice came carried from the entrance of the alleyway, but Lei Tianyan stood motionless.

"Damn it! Are you a fool? Eh, it's okay, as long as you look good."

Lei Tianyan had a certain effeminate quality, which instantly attracted everyone.

The man looked Lei Tianyan up and down with a dirty look in his greedy eyes, and seeing Lei Tianyan wasn't resisting, he got closer to the catatonic Lei Tianyan. "Hello there, tell me are you lost or were you waiting for me? No worry, either way, I'll make you happy enough."

Then he reached out to Lei Tianyan with a grubby fat hand, and Lei Tianyan still absorbed in his thoughts was unresponsive.

"Aaah!" The man let out a scream, and his fat body fell to the ground with a thud. At the same time, an experienced and quite capable shadow blocked the entranceway to the alley, and a cold air filled the entire alley.

Lei Tianyan finally recovering smiled bitterly at the icy figure.

"Are you here to laugh at me, Shui Minghan?" He asked.
