Seven years later.

In a small town not far from the Ning'guo temple lived a family. About ten years ago, they had purchased the best house in the town. It was said that inside the house lived a handsome man and a beautiful woman. Their servants came in and out on errands or chores, and the townsmen only knew that their family-name was Xiao as the family was rarely seen.

It was late autumn and the weather was getting cold. In the mysterious Xiao house, two men sat under the arbor. One of whom was a man In his forties with urbane manners, dressed in green. "I'll place it here" he said.

"Are you sure, grandpa?" On the other side, sat a girl at the age of fourteen or fifteen. Her eyes were gentle like water, but with a touch of coldness. Her fingers were slim and well-cared for. She was so fair it seemed as though her skin had been dipped in milk. She had roses in her cheeks, and looked as if she would melt when touched. A smile blossomed on her lips, and her long black hair poured down her back. Today, she had tied it with a silk ribbon and it casually flew in the autumn wind. She wore a floor-length white gown, which was embroidered with butterflies. In a word, she was gorgeous. She was Yun Shang, who had grown up.

Xiao Yuanshan nodded, "I am sure."

Yun Shang smiled, and placed her black go-chess piece onto the chessboard, "Thank you, Grandpa. I've won again."

Xiao Yuanshan frowned and looked at the chessboard for a long time. Then he sighed, "The student has become the teacher now. I've only taught you go-chess for a few years, but now you are better than me. I have to bring you to Ning'guo temple sometime to let Wu Na experience what we call failure."

Yun Shang winked, and smiled. Her grandpa was aged, but still liked to bicker with Master Wu Na. From time to time, her grandpa would go and pick on him for fun. It was said that Master Wu Na and her grandma had known each other since childhood. When grandma married grandpa, Master Wu Na happened to be experiencing personal adversity, and so he chose to serve Buddha. But the two men were always at loggerheads with each other. According to grandpa, they were incompatible like "water and fire." But Yun Shang believed that meant they actually had a strong friendship.

"Shang'er, Wu Na told me that t

red her eyes with a smile and said, "If I can't protect the people I want to protect, what's the point of my life?"

Wu Na remained quiet. Yun Shang continued, "I don't know whether I can come back again. Master, please take care of my grandpa in my stead."

Wu Na nodded, "That's for sure. We have been friends for so many years. Stay assured, Yun Shang, your grandpa has luck on his side."

Yun Shang breathed a sigh of relief, and bid goodbye to the Master.

"Your Highness, that woman has been handled. And our belongings have been packed. When do we leave?" Qin Yi asked as Yun Shang entered.

Yun Shang stood at the door, and thought for a while before she spoke. "Over the years I've asked Master Wu Na to report to the Emperor that I am weak and unhealthy, and we have to add some merit to that story. Go and boil a pot of herb medicine for me, and perfume my gowns with it. I'll change into a plain dress, and you will hold an umbrella for me when we walk out even though the sun's not heavy yet."

Qin Yi nodded, "Just two of us? What about Ning Qian and the others?"

Ning Qian was the leader of Yun Shang's own force, which she had cultivated by her own hands. Even though Ning Qian was a woman, she was as witty and brave as any man, if not better.

Yun Shang sat in a chair, and answered, "They have already been in the Imperial City, and have arranged what should be arranged. And this time, we will figure out who is more wicked and merciless." Yun Shang flashed a warm smile, but her eyes were cold.
