"What, what is it?" Wu Ci had a bad feeling.

A man in black stepped forward, and he opened the bag with his sword.

A head rolled out onto Wu Ci's foot. Wu Ci looked disgusted at it first, until he recognized the person it was once attached to.

"Qi'er! Qi'er! No! My son! No!" Wu Ci cried out.

Yun Canglan looked down at him, a murderous look on her face, "Wu Ci, without Mister Yao Xi, the support of the Shuihuang Firm or the raiders of Chimei Wangliang, what do you have?"

Tears streamed down Wu Ci's cheeks, a wild look in his eyes as he stared up at Yun Canglan, "You killed my sons, Yun Canglan. I must kill you!"

Yun Canglan pouted, "You still have your daughter, Wu Yunling, right?"

"Xue Ying, kill her! I'll bury her with my sons!" Wu Ci knew that he could never win in taking the throne for himself, but Yun Canglan must die, to avenge his sons.

Xue Ying walked up to Yun Canglan, his sword drawn, and the closer he got, the more diabolical Wu Ci looked. Yun Canglan stared indifferently at the approaching Xue Ying.

"Yun Canglan, you can go to hell!" Wu Ci cruelly shouted. Xue Ying didn't kill Yun Canglan, but...

"Mistress." Xue Ying fell on his knee paying homage.

"What? Xue Ying, you…" Wu Ci, and the rest of the room, were stunned. Huo Liuyun forced a smile. 'Canglan, you planned everything long ago. You waited more than ten years and prepared for my attacks, didn't you?'

Xue Ying stood behind Yun Canglan, with a poker-face.

Yun Canglan laughed, looking down on Wu Ci, "See? All your chips are gone. I planted Xue Ying at your side three years ago and made a plan for the Shenyong General. Wu Ci, you lose!"

Wu Ci hunched over Wu Yunqi's head, cradling it in his arms. There was a sorrowful look in his dull eyes.

"Yun Qi, kill him!"

No one dared question what was happening. The traitorous guards were too worried about themselves. They weren't about to try and save Wu Ci. As Yun Qi waved his hand, Wu Ci fell over, without closing his eyes.

Yun Canglan turned to face Huo Liuyun, who didn't exhibit regret or sadness, "Huo Liuyun, do you see? How stupid you are."

Huo Liuyun looked blankly at Yun Canglan. He wasn't irritated but he smiled bitterly, "Yes. Canglan, I know I'm stupid, but I am also very happy you are still alive."

"Are you ready to be my slave?" Yun Canglan sneered as she asked.

Huo Liuyun was heartbroken.

"Okay, I'll be your slave." he responded.

In the days to come, he knew he would suffer without his self-esteem, but that didn't matter as long as he could be with Yun Canglan. He didn't want supremacy, nor would he rack his brains scheming. He just wanted Yun Canglan.

"Liuyun, what did you say?" Huo Yang stood up. He still held the imperial seal, and was feeling arrogant with the death of Wu Ci. Huo Liuyun rolled his eyes, and gave his father a blase look.

Since he was a child, his father told him that to be the emperor, he had to scheme, and attain what he wanted whether by hook or by crook, but now he realized that it was senseless. Over the past three years, he never laughed. He never slept soundly instead of vying for the throne. His beloved girl was his priority.

Huo Liuyun had compromised, and Huo Yang was feeling anxious. He turned to his ever loyal general Yun Yajun, "Zhenguo General, do you plan on joining them at rebelling?"

Before Yun Yajun answered, Yun Canglan said, "Your Majesty, you can't say that. We don't wish to rebel. We want, instead, to set up a new emperor. You are old, and it is time for you to retire and live out your lif

e in the imperial household. Well, as for the imperial seal..."

Huo Liuyun sighed and walked to Huo Yang, "Father, give her the imperial seal. You're not the Emperor of the Can Kingdom anymore." Yun Canglan, with her royal demeanor, should be the Emperor. She was no longer the little girl who played dirty tricks on people, like a spoiled child.

Huo Yang refused. "Liuyun, you really are disappointing me! You actually conspired with them to rebel!"

"Father!" Huo Liuyun shouted, "I didn't rebel! Don't you see? It's a big mistake. Neither of us is qualified to govern the Can Kingdom. We allowed it to decay; we are suspicious and untrusting of those we employ, so we have failed, father. Do you want us to repeat this mistake?"

Huo Liuyun had experienced many vicissitudes of life. He wasn't as cold and calculating as he was. He was weary, exhausted and helpless. "Father, although I will be a puppet, our family will be safe, right? I don't care about the throne. Just let it go, okay?" It was what Yun Canglan was due.

Huo Yang was depressed. His eyes looked dull without their spark. He staggered and didn't know what to do.

Huo Liuyun looked at his beloved girl Yun Canglan. "Father, you were once deeply in love with my mother. You were overwhelmed with grief when she died. I have suffered that pain, and I never want to suffer it again. Fortunately, my girl is not dead. I owe her a lot. No matter what she asks of me in the future, I won't regret anymore. Father, from now on, live a simple life. You can fulfill my mother's last request. Go appreciate the most beautiful sunsets in the world and travel extensively, okay?"

Huo Yang missed his wife deeply and was touched by what Huo Liuyun said. Many people had fought and died today for the imperial seal that he handed to Huo Liuyun, "Liuyun, you are right. We were mistaken."

Huo Liuyun took the imperial seal and presented it to Yun Canglan while staring at her beautiful face with endless love and satisfaction. She was not his girl but his Mistress.

Bowing his head, Huo Liuyun knelt on one knee and lifted the imperial seal over his head with both hands. His face wet with his tears.

"I, Huo Liuyun, hereby present the imperial seal of the Can Kingdom. I am your willing slave from this day on."

Huo Liuyun felt sorrow for the past. Everything was gone with the wind, while his yearning and love were now tears.

Yun Canglan didn't take the seal. She felt distressed as she looked blankly at Huo Liuyun who knelt on one knee for the first time.

She was suddenly overwhelmed with thoughts of the past. For a moment, she felt a prick in her heart.

However, she had her own principles, and she would never forgive traitors, especially ones like Qi Yuntian.

After she took the imperial seal, she raised her head arrogantly, "Huo Liuyun will take the throne in three days time."

According to the Shuihuo Calendar, late in the summer of 1014, three days after the ceremony of offering sacrifice to the Heaven and praying for blessings, Huo Liuyun, the Crown Prince of the Can Kingdom, was crowned emperor and changed the title of his reign to Tianqi. The Zhenguo General, Yun Yajun was titled Prince Regent with a different surname and given two-thirds of the Can Kingdom's military power, while the Shenyong General, Xue Ying, controlled the remaining one-third of the military forces.

The common people quickly became accustomed to the replacement on the throne, but a few knew someone else owned the imperial seal of the Can Kingdom, and she was just the real emperor.
