    “Five silver leaves,” the dealer replied. Judging from the boy’s thin, weak figure, the dealer felt this boy wasn’t capable of much labor so five silver leaves was more than enough.  “That’s too little.” Feng Xi pulled Han Piao’s face towards the dealer and began bargaining, “Look, think of how handsome this child will be once he comes of age. He’s got big eyes, long lashes, skin smooth as water, he’s even more beautiful than a girl. If…..” Feng Xi oddly lowered her voice and continued, “If a rich fellow was to buy him…..I’ll surely get at least forty silver leaves. But I don’t need forty silver leaves, I’ll give…

    Tai City, Nan Kingdom. Tai City was situated near the south, adjacent to Er City which bordered Huang Kingdom. In the past, if you wanted to reach Er City, you had to pass Ge City then Yin City but 5 years ago, in the Ge City War, Huang Kingdom had managed to annex both cities as part of its kingdom.  “Well, we’re finally here, Tai City,” Feng Xi exclaimed as she peered up at the huge letterings of the plaque hanging above the city gates.  “Piao’er, hurry up. Let’s enter the city and have a meal,” Feng Xi turned around and called out to the delicate young master(shao ye) whose…

    Inside the ship’s cabin was a vision of luxury, there were purple silk drapes, hand-carved wooden tables and chairs, thick red carpets lining the floors and scenic paintings and poems decorating the walls. But the most conspicuous of all was the figure by the window, seated on the soft couch, whose presence transformed the entirety of this overly extravagant place to one with a stylistic elegance and nicety.  Feng Xi was seated on the soft couch while Zhong Li stood waiting by his side. On the ground, a man was kneeling and with his head lowered, his face could not be clearly distinguished in the dark cabin. He was like…

    “Hmm.” Yu Wu Yuan received the letter and nodded slightly.  “You can go.” “Yes.” The man in black lifted the curtain once more and retreated. He did not spare the woman standing there a glance but Feng Xi did and what drew his attention was the look in her eyes, there was resentment, anger and even a trace of helplessness.  The curtain fluttered to a drop.  The inside and outside of the room were like two different worlds separated by this thin curtain.   Yu Wu Yuan opened the letter, a silk paper with written black ink words. He quietly read through it and his eyes gave a slight ripple.  “If…

    On the fifth floor, there was an elegant room located near the window. With curtain screening the door, the line of sight of prying eyes were all obstructed. The two gentlemen, one dressed in black, one dressed in white, each with their distinct presence and demeanor, took a seat opposite of one another. Standing quietly in attendance on the left and right were Zhong Li and Zhong Yuan respectively.  “Young masters, what would you like to order?” the attendant asked politely.  “What are the best dishes here?” asked Feng Xi. “Light Breeze Skims Across the Waters, Duckweed Withers, Dew Coalesce in the Cold Moonlight, and Phoenix Trees Shed their Golden…

    Since the Emperor lost the Xuan Zun Seal, Qiyun, the region under his direct rule had lost its former glory. Not only were its borders encroached by the other kingdoms, but even its towns and cities were gradually being swallowed up. If not for general Dong Shu Fang who remained loyal to the royal family and led his troops of 100,000 men to defend Qiyun, it would’ve already fallen, its lands divided amongst the six kingdoms.  Over the years, the population of Qiyun was slowly dwindling and as a result, so was its economy. In terms of military strength, it could not compare with Feng(1) and Huang Kingdom. In terms…

    “(Older) Sister, will Prince Huang Chao become the Emperor in the future?”  Listening to the endless echoes sounding across the mountains, Han Piao raised his head and asked Feng Xi. “Emperor? Perhaps he will, perhaps he won’t,” Feng Xi replied as she looked up at the skies, her eyes as bright as the sunlight piercing through the ennead beds of clouds. Her proud demeanor was no less compared to the prince of Huang Kingdom that few could rival.  “He also had the same manner when he spoke!” Han Piao said as he proceeded to imitate Feng Xi, raising his head to look up at the sky, squinting his eyes as…

    Xiao Jian’s eyes widened and he stared at her incredulously.  “Here’s your bottle back!” Feng Xi said as she threw the bottle at Xiao Jian and proceeded to pat her wet hands on his shoulders. “Let me borrow your clothes to dry my hands again!”   Xiao Jian immediately felt his shoulders dampen with two wet handprints.  “The roast duck’s mine!” Feng Xi claimed as she quickly dashed towards the carpet. With a stretch of her hand, she grabbed onto the leg of the roast duck and brought it to her lips. After a big bite, half of the meat had entered her belly.  “Ah!” Han Piao, who was still focused…

    “Your honorable little brother’s sneaky behavior made me mistake him for an assassin. I’ve offended you just now. Please forgive me,” Xiao Jian suddenly cupped his palm over his fist in salutation and explained in a solemn, differential manner.  “This smelly little brat got ashes all over me. I was going to give him a spanking but unexpectedly, he escaped even faster than a hare. Serves him right that he got frightened by you. Ultimately, it was all a misunderstanding, General does not need to be so courteous.” Feng Xi also cupped her palm over her fist and returned the courtesy.  “Miss has seen through both of our identities, but…

    “Jian, put away the sword.” Suddenly, a voice sounded from behind, light yet imposing, with the sonance of a monarch commanding a subject.  Instantly, the energy around the man in snow-white robes dispersed; the murderous look in his eyes also dissipated. He proceeded to pull back his sword but Feng Xi was holding tightly to the tip of the blade. He furrowed his brows and strengthened his pull but the sword wouldn’t budge an inch.  The shade of blue in his eyes that had faded instantly darkened as he stared at Feng Xi as if wanting to fight but trying to be patient.  “Miss, how about letting go?” The voice…
