Ignoring the looks of admiration, resentment and adoration the other guests felt, Yun Canglan left the Yuhua Restaurant in the company of the handsome twins.

At Prince Ning's birthday banquet where humiliation and ridicule were planned, Yun Canglan showed strength in moderate measures and became the final victor.

After Yun Canglan left with Yun Qin and Yun Qi, the other guests went home one by one until only the Grand Councilor's eldest son and Vice Minister Feng were left.

Prince Ning had a hideously diabolic look, as he schemed and plotted.

"Your Highness, " the Grand Councilor's eldest son's voice was full of fear as he said, "That wasn't my intent. I bought the painting at a high price. I didn't know it was a fake."

Prince Ning glared at him, "Never mind that. I'm not angry with you."

"Vice Minister Feng, what do you think?"

Vice Minister Feng assumed an air of self-approbation, "In my opinion, the Yu's Residence must be hiding its strength."

Prince Ning narrowed his eyes, "Go on."

"They used to be the wealthiest family in the Ling Kingdom. As the saying goes, a lean camel is bigger than a horse. Although they fell on hard times in the recent years, maybe they protect themselves this way. Your spies discovered the Yu family suffers a loss now, but perhaps it's a deliberate cover-up. If they really have come down in the world, why did Yu Liuying have so many legendary luminous pearls? As she pointed out, if they are really down and out, how could she afford to keep those boy toys in the Beauty House?"

Yu Liuying became the target. In fact, her family really was on the decline, but Yun Canglan was supporting them behind the scenes.

Prince Ning was calculating, "Vice Minister Feng, pay more attention to the Yu's Residence. They can't help me, but they can't hinder me either."

Yun Canglan napped to the swaying of the sedan chair as it went down the street, followed by the other two behind.

It was late at night, and no one was on the street.

Yun Canglan had sharp ears, and sat up when she suddenly heard noises. She wanted to check out what was happening.

"Stop." Yun Canglan ordered gently. The bearers steadily placed the sedan chair on the ground. Yun Qin and Yun Qi lifted up the curtains.

"Mistress, do you want to join in the fun?"

Yun Canglan nodded.

She climbed down fr

un Canglan's brisk voice sounded louder in the quiet night.

Yun Qin begrudgingly went over and knelt to assess Wu Jin; he rudely yanked Wu Jin's arm out to get his pulse.

Wu Jin's garment moved, and a mouse peeked out, stretching its neck. Cautiously looking around, its little nose twitched as it sniffed at the air and cutely rolled its eyes.

"What's this?" Yun Canglan asked as she pointed to the mouse.

Wu Jin looked down at the mouse and said, "He is my pet, Jin Zi."

Jin Zi? But, it was just a mouse.

Yun Qi regarded Jin Zi with disdain. Jin Zi seemed to feel Yun Qi's unfriendliness and stared back at him with large round eyes. Its whiskers twitched while squeaking low and rapidly, as if it was whispering something.

After a time, Yun Qin released Wu Jin's wrist, stood up and went to confer with Yun Canglan, "He will be fine. He was just poisoned severely."

Yun Canglan glared angrily at Yun Qin, "He will be fine? This isn't the time for joking.

Can you remove the poison?"

Yun Qin replied, "Yes. Yun Qi is proficient, and I can help him."

Yun Canglan sighed feeling helpless. She bargained with Yun Qin, "I heard there are some treasured swords that will be unearthed in the Si Kingdom. I will get them for you."

Yun Qi jumped up, approaching Yun Qin and Yun Canglan with long strides, "The antidote is difficult to locate and will take some time." he added.

"Take them to the Yu's residence."

"What?"

"Are you serious?"

Yun Canglan smirked, "It's been a long while since the Beauty House had new comers, right?"
