These men were a bit of a handful, which had Yun Canglan in a bad mood.

She stood and slowly walked to Yang Lian, raising her chin proudly.

"Yang Lian, you are wearing the robe from Shuiyun Clothing Store. You have an expensive lifestyle." Yun Canglan praised. Everybody knew Shuiyun Clothing Store was a famous tailor's in Ling City, whose clothes were superior in every aspect, such as style, process, embroidery, cloth, etc. Moreover, even if you were rich, you were unable to buy clothes from Shuiyun Clothing Store. It only sold three clothes a day, and there was a three-year waiting list for clothes from royal members of Ling Kingdom.

Yang Lian was a first rate scholar, but hadn't taken office. Yun Canglan wouldn't have thought he would have clothes from the Shuiyun Clothing Store.

Yang Lian stated proudly, "You have a good eye, Lady Liuying. This robe was not sent by you. The Yu's Family is not able to buy clothes from the Shuiyun Clothing Store yet."

Yun Canglan grabbed Yang Lian's collar and touched his robe.

"Of course, the Yu's Family is unable to buy clothes from the Shuiyun Clothing Store, but I can."

A man in green came up behind Yang Lian. He snorted and gave a contemptuous laugh, "You can? Lady Liuying, do you really think you can do anything you want? You can only rely on the power of the Yu's Family to snatch us. You are unable to buy clothes from the Shuiyun Clothing Store. Lady Liuying, are you also going to claim that you can compensate me for my chessboard set and chess pieces that were made from precious jade?"

The man sneered at Yun Canglan as he spoke. More than thirty men laughed, not concealing their dislike of her.

"En Ying, you are right. Are you a mind reader? You knew precisely what I was going to say."

En Ying scowled, but soon he concealed his true feeling, "No, I'm not. Lady Liuying, it is Mr. Qin who can read your mind."

Yun Qin leaned against Yun Canglan proudly.

He enjoyed this interesting sensation as the man despised by all these men.

"I'm tired." Dong Ling stretched, casting a side glance at Yun Canglan, "You are making a fool of yourself. Alas, so boring. I'd rather go back to my room, and take a sleep than watch more of the drama in here."

En Ying nodded, "You are right. It's a pity that we didn't dismantle the Beauty House today."

All the men laughed. They ignored Yun Canglan and turned away.

Yun Canglan sat beside the stone table again. She picked up a yellow leaf on the table, and studied its veins carefully as if she was looking at some priceless treasure. She ignored the sneers of disdain from the men.

"You have eyes but fail to see. So stupid." Yun Canglan murmured. Yang Lian, the nearest man to Yun Canglan, stopped his pacing and turned back toward her. He remained speechless, staring suspiciously at her.

"Yang Lian, do you plan on spending the night with her?" Dong Ling had also stopped and was sneering.

Yun Canglan still played with the leaf as she commanded, "Qin'er, call the tailor at the Shuiyun Clothing Store over. Tell him I'm feeling kind-hearted and want to order clothes for all the misters here." "Yes, Mistress."

Every one of the men there stopped and turned around, staring blankly at Yun Canglan, as they wondered whether they had jarred Lady Liuying.

If she really ordered more than thirty outfi

ts from the Shuiyun Clothing Store, people in the Yu's Residence would have to eat maize bread from now on. The boss of the Shuiyun Clothing Store was more arrogant than that of the Fengyun Firm and didn't care about even the Emperor's feeling, let alone Lady Liuying.

"Ask Ji Dong to come here tonight. I need to see that everyone has a chessboard set and chess pieces made of precious jade tomorrow."

They thought, 'Lady Liuying must be out of her mind.' Ji Dong was the most affluent craftsman across all seven kingdoms. Any piece made by Ji Dong was priceless, even if it was made from rock. A regular chessboard set with chess pieces created from precious jade are only several hundred Liang; when made by Ji Dong, it would be priceless. It was said Ji Dong lived in a small town of the Ling Kingdom and seldom met strangers. Lady Liuying must be crazy.

"Yes, Mistress." Yun Qin looked proudly at more than thirty dumbfounded handsome men. For the first time, he felt that it was quite empowering to have a wealthy Mistress.

Yun Canglan was pleased to look up and see their surprised looks.

"Qin'er, don't forget to give everyone a General Red Robe, so they can spend time. Give several crickets more to Dong Ling. You know how generous I am."

"Yes, Mistress."

The men all turned their backs disrespectfully and left.

At dusk, the tailor from the Shuiyun Clothing Store walked into the Beauty House with a tape measure and bowed respectfully to Lady Liuying. It was not until then did they realize Yun Canglan was telling the truth.

The tailor of the Shuiyun Clothing Store was called Wang Guo, and he was about 30 years old. People could tell he was a capable man judging from his sharp eyes. Otherwise, he was not able to run the Shuiyun Clothing Store without caring about the feelings of the royal members.

The servant of Yu's Residence led Wang Guo in. When Wang Guo was at the gate, the head of the Yu's Residence heard the news and immediately asked the servant to receive him. Before long, everyone there knew Wang Guo, master tailor of the Shuiyun Clothing Store, was at the Yu's Residence with a tape measure.

They were all shocked since Wang Guo didn't even show respect to the royal members.

The head of the Yu's Residence escorted Wang Guo to the Beauty House himself, but Wang Guo ignored him. When he saw Yun Canglan sipping her tea leisurely, he bowed in an over flattering manner. Everyone was frightened by his moves, including the men from the Beauty House who came when they heard the news.

Yun Canglan glanced at Wang Guo and said indifferently, "Arise." Wang Guo immediately stood up and walked to her.

"I don't need any new clothes, thank you. I want to order new clothes for them." Yun Canglan raised her chin gesturing toward the men.

Wang Guo understood, and straightened himself before walking over to them. He began to measure their figures while grumbling, "Stand straight! Stretch out your arms! You are so lucky to have me measuring your figures. Mister, you must have prayed to the gods every night."

"Stop moving. Otherwise, the figures won't be right. Mister, don't take your undeserved gain for granted. If it wasn't Lady Liuying, I would not make clothes for you, even if you gave me a mountain of gold. Lady Liuying, these men do not deserve to wear the clothes made by me..."
