At the Qifeng Palace, the Imperial Palace of Can Kingdom

Yun Canglan sprawled on a soft bench. There was sliced watermelon on the table in front of her. Yun Qin flapped the fan behind her, sending a cool breeze, and Yun Qi massaged her shins.

"Mistress, my hands are shaky." Yun Qin complained. He was a man! It would be humiliating if martial artists saw this.

Yun Canglan ignored his complaint and ordered, "I'm hot. Flap the fan harder."

Yun Qin rolled his eyes, cursing her silently.

"Mistress, it's our fault." Yun Qi had had enough of Yun Canglan's cold attitude, and decided to confess.

Yun Canglan raised her brows, "Really? Tell me what you did wrong."

"We shouldn't have killed those officials." Yun Qi cast a careful glance at Yun Canglan. Yun Qin, Yun Ri and he decided to kill the officials behind Yun Canglan's back. They knew they should not, but their intentions were good and for Yun Canglan's benefit.

Those officials were Wu Ci's companions. Wu Ci was dead, and they harbored resentment toward Yun Canglan and planned to rebel against her. Yun Canglan was kindhearted and hadn't kill them. But Yun Qi and his companions couldn't bear it, feeling they should kill anyone who might endanger the Mistress. Therefore, after a discussion, they killed everyone that had joined the rebellion.

They had thought the Mistress would not find it, but they were wrong.

Yun Canglan sighed, "I had a plan. I wanted to leave them for Huo Liuyun to kill, as he is the proper one to order it. But you were impatient, and now every official is jittery. They only submit to my power. To seize the world, we need to have popular support. You were too impulsive."

Yun Qin and Yun Qi immediately stopped their work and knelt down, "Mistress, we are so sorry. We made a decision without authorization and got you into trouble. Please punish us."

Yun Canglan shook her hand, "Never mind. Arise. I know you did it for my benefit."

"Mistress, " Yun Qin said seriously, "it's a full moon tonight."

Yun Canglan frowned.

She leaned back into the softness of the bench again.

Yun Qin and Yun Qi knew what she was thinking about, 'You miss Mr. Tianyan. Why don't you visit him?' They thought to themselves.

"Mistress, how will you spend the night?" Yun Qin worried about Yun Canglan very much. During the last full moon, the poison attack was more severe. They were afraid Yun Canglan would suffer tonight. More importantly, no proper man was at the Mistress's side.

Their Mistress would not choose Huo Liuyun. Their Mistress was still at odds with Mr. Tianyan. Yang Gezhi had already left. They had not seen Shui Minghan for a while. They wondered whether he finally ran out of patience.

Yun Qin and Yun Qi were very worried about their Mistress, but Yun Canglan didn't care about it at all.

"Mistress, what..." Yun Qi's words were interrupted by Yun Qin. Yun Qin shook his head at Yun Qi and changed the subject, "Mistress, the situation in the Can Kingdom is stable. Where shall we go next?" It was their Mistress's task to take over the seven kingdoms and unify the two continents. The rumor of Fire Phoenix more than ten years ago was true. Their Mistress was Fire Phoenix.

"Next..." Yun Canglan murmured.

Yun Qin sighed with profound resignation and left the room with Yun Qi, "Mistress, we are going to make your supper."

At dusk, Yun Qi was extracting the essence of some medicinal herbs in his temporary pharmacy built in the Qifeng Palace. Desperate with anxiety, Yun Qin ran off, in a great hurry.

"Oh my god! Yun Qi, the Mistress is missing."

The medicinal herbs fell to the floor. Yun Qi asked anxiously, "What? Where did she go?"

Yun Qin panicked, "I took the su

pper to the Mistress's room, but didn't find her. I've already searched the whole Qifeng Palace, but found nothing."

"What about outside the Palace? Did you search there?" Yun Qi was nervous and confused too.

"I've informed Huo Liuyun to send his guards in search of the Mistress." Yun Qin answered. The only time when Yun Canglan was alone was three years ago. At that time, Shui Minghan left Yun Canglan. The Shuihuang Firm enticed them to leave Yun Canglan. Yun Canglan had been in extreme danger. Yun Qin and Yun Qi almost took the blame by committing suicide. If anything happened to Yun Canglan, they'd rather kill themselves.

Yun Qi thought about it for a while before saying, "This is the Imperial Palace of the Can Kingdom. It is highly unlikely that the Mistress was kidnapped. Most likely, the Mistress left on her own. But why would she leave? It is full moon tonight, and she could have poison attacks at any time. Was that the reason that the Mistress left us now...?"

"You mean, you think the Mistress was afraid we would find a a strange man to detox her, so she left?"

Yun Qi nodded, "More importantly, I think the Mistress left for Mr. Tianyan."

Yun Qi's words made sense as Yun Qin nodded, "I get it. I'll immediately inform Yun Ri, Yun Xiang and Yun Yu. We must find the Mistress before midnight, no matter what."

Yun Qi gave Yun Qin several pills, "I've made these pills for the Mistress. I hope it will work. If you find the Mistress, feed her a pill. I'm going to pay a visit to Duan Mingxuan for help."

Yun Qin and Yun Qi immediately left the Imperial Palace. Huo Liuyun gathered all the palace guards and generals and began searching for Yun Canglan.

It was a night of unrest.

Yun Canglan had left the Imperial Palace of the Can Kingdom. She felt weak at dusk, but she wanted to be alone then. She didn't want anyone to be around her, including Yun Qin or Yun Qi, who had been with her for many years and understood her poison the most.

She knew she would be in danger if she left, but she couldn't stay there.

Lei Tianyan left, Yang Gezhi left, and even Shui Minghan was not at her side. Yun Qin and Yun Qi were sure to find a man to detox her, but she didn't want that.

She couldn't forget last month, Tianyan pushed her door open, and his face was covered with tears, but he forced a smile for her. She didn't want to use a man like this anymore.

She was not fickle in love, on the contrary, she loved deeply. From Qi Yuntian to Feng Gui, every time she fell in love with a man, she was cheated and betrayed. Although she was able to advance or retreat in love, every failed relationship made her emotional vulnerability that much worse. She was ashamed that Lei Tianyan saw that.

Yun Canglan grabbed a cloth bag and walked aimless along streets.

It was getting dark outside and lights were coming on in the streets. There were less pedestrians out walking. Many vendors had packed their goods and gone home. The most bustling places at that moment were the brothels.

Yun Canglan didn't know where she should go to. She walked out of Can City, and the city gate was closed. Then she realized that she had left the Imperial Palace and was in a suburb.

The city gate was closed and she was unable to go back to Can City tonight. She could only find a place to sleep outside the city.

But she was not sure whether she was able to get through the night.

Yun Canglan finally found a dilapidated house, which had been empty for a long time.

It was summer, but it was somehow cool that night, especially for a weakened person.

Yun Canglan closed her eyes and held the bag closely. She hoped that she could fall asleep and get through the night alone.
