Wu Jin and Yue Ying were moved to the Huiting Yard in the Beauty House. It was a small but pretty yard, with things that met all of life's needs. In addition, Yun Canglan arranged for two servant girls to attend to the needs of the patients.

After lunch, Wu Jin and Yue Ying passed the time playing chess in the yard. Autumn was an exhilarating season, but now and then, men walked around their yard with looks of pity, and mercy in their eyes, so they lost interest in their activities.

Several men of the Beauty House stood in the gateway animatedly discussing the two men while watching them. They were healed, but the poison remained.

"They're handsome, far better looking than any man already in residence."

"Of course, otherwise Lady Yu wouldn't have brought them in."

"They look like they were destroyed by that woman. Who are they?"

"Look at how sallow his face is, do you think he was mistreated by Lady Yu?"

"I don't think so. I think it's from overindulgence."

"Tut, tut, Lady Yu is so strong, they are both so pale."

"Don't judge a person by her looks. The amorous Lady Yu might be good at it."

"I agree! Look, that man looks like he will spit up blood, any moment. Oh, God, we'd do best to avoid Lady Yu."


Overhearing the conversation, Wu Jin's frosty but handsome face changed, for the first time since they arrived.

Yue Ying's shoulder shook as he stifled a laugh.

"You will leave if you laugh again." There was a savage look of anger that didn't match the cool tone of Wu Jin's voice.

His threat was mote. He was not detoxified, so he could not leave yet.

With these thoughts Wu Jin's deep eyes darkened.

'Feng Yun'er's two servants know the toxin well. One of them has superior medical skills, and the other is very adept with poisons, plus they're twins. Isn't this too much of a coincidence?'

He immediately shook his head, doubting his speculation, 'Mister Night Phoenix is a man. His appearance, his painting style, those alone show that he cannot be a woman. Besides, Mister Night Phoenix stopped the War of Thr

an to tell her, "Mistress, Yun Xiang is here.''

"What's he doing here?"

Yun Qin looked at Wu Jin, wondering if he should be here to tell Yun Canglan. After a few seconds Yun Canglan did not stop him, he said, "Yun Xiang said that Mister Yang was looking for you everywhere in the branches of the Fengyun Firm, saying that he had something important to tell you. Afraid of delaying you, Yun Xiang came to inquire about it."

"What does he need to tell me?" Suddenly, Yun Canglan saw a pair of affectionate and guilty eyes for a brief second in her mind, and she relented.

"I have no idea, but Yun Xiang said Mister Yang seemed anxious."

"Ask Yun Xiang to bring him here, but tell Yun Xiang to keep a low profile." Yun Canglan added, remembering Yun Xiang's golden clothes were brighter than the sun.

His Mistress's request alarmed Yun Qin, and he asked, "Bring Mister Yang here?" He was afraid Yun Canglan would be exposed.

"Don't worry, Mister Yang won't tell it." Yang Gezhi did have the intention, but for the moment she was the one who could protect him.

Not long after the soft footsteps of Yun Xiang and Yang Gezhi were heard approaching the Huiting Yard.

Yang Gezhi wore a plain white robe with orchids embroidered on the cuffs that seemed to carry a wisp of fragrance. With the weak sunlight falling upon him, he looked as if he were covered with a golden light.
