The Tale of Empress Hua Fan Ya - chapter 10
Blue Sky Country
The hustle and bustle city streets of the Capital , Tranquil City are noisier than ever . Every people are busy doing their business.
Hua Fan Ya didn’t mind those sounds and leisurely eating pastries. She knows that she can’t properly eat in tonight’s event.
“How’s the Shadows?”
” Miss, verified!” Answered solemnly by Hua Yi who was with Hua Cheng in the same carriage as their miss’ Hua Fan Ya.
” Be extra alert later.”
“Yes, Miss!”The two main servants peeks at their mistress. They are really can’t figure how powerful their miss is. Even in their many adventure , met with many strong opponents and dangerous situations, their miss is always calm and collected.
When miss was still a child, she was already very intelligent and wise. They can’t forget how a seven years old child makes all the servants in Snow Tree Courtyard swear loyalty and submit completely to her, even their soul.
Yes, part of their soul is in the hands of their mistress as they plot to betray her then it is easier for her to kill us however she gave us hope and new life.
She gave us identity.
She gave us power.
She gave us dignity that we don’t have as a lowly servants.
Thus, even one of them didn’t have any thoughts of betraying their miss.
Their miss is their light and their life.
When their miss turned thirteen, she always went to seclusion in the cover of becoming stronger for the Master and Madam to not worry. The truth was she will escape and will venture the perilous places in the Sky Country or even in the other Empires either bringing her, Hua Yi and Hua Cheng or Hua Chen and Hua Hai.
As their miss grow in strength so do them.
With miss’ adventures, she also gathered more capable, skilled and trustworthy people. One of them is the ‘Shadows’, which is the squad for spying and gathering intelligence and information.
After one and a half hour of moving, the Hua family’s magnificent carriages finally arrived at the enormous gate of the Palace. Showing the badge of the Masters before entering.
What came into view is the towering and massive home of the dragons, phoenix and tigers, The Imperial Palace which is standing proudly and imposingly.
“Miss, we have arrived.” Hua Cheng informed before stepping out together with Hua Yi, then respectfully bowed and carefully raised her hand welcoming the slender and beautiful hand coming from the carriage.
The people outside who arrived a little earlier and arrived together with the Hua Advisor’s carriage look curiously at their direction.
The Huas brought six carriages and everyone’s eyes wandered, seems to finding someone.
When a willowy snow white hand peeked in one of the carriage, the last one. They can’t help but stare intensely in a collected manner. The time seemed stopped when it’s owner revealed herself.
Everyone gasped and silently followed her every movement through their bulging eyes.
Seeing the people’s reaction, the members of Hua who came just slightly smiled.
‘Who could blame them .’ They thought and cast a meaningful glance into each others eyes.
The manservant, who serve as welcoming and announcing the guest look stupefied but was recovered by a cough. He embarrassingly rubbed the back of his head and announced loudly.
” Right Advisor Hua of the the First Rank and family!”
“Advisor Hua of the Third rank and the family!”
The servant’s shrill voice rang inside the huge palace.
Hearing this Fan Ya smiled. Her two uncles stayed as Third Rank Advisors not with their abilities but they just don’t want to advance for they are contented of it. If they want to, they are already a Second Rank right now however their father, their Eldest brother is high rank already and that is enough for them because they know if they will advance then the Emperor may be wary of them, bringing harm to them.
Everyone present who is chatting became silent at the instant, they too heard the rumors and eagerly want to know the truth but still maintained their composure however for not that long before gawk to a stunning figure.
Wearing a very long white robe with a life like petals of plum blossoms perfectly embroidered. It was so vivid that you can feel the coldness of the winter even it is currently summer.
Her hair donned with an exquisite hairpin made of high quality white Jade in each side of her head contrasting to her very black and long hair which is swaying back and forth with her light yet steady steps.
Her face was still covered with white veil only seeing her soul sucking pair of phoenix eyes but still enough to attract the envy of the Goddess and beautiful enough to bring desire to Gods.
Hua Fan Ya didn’t mind and let them see. Supermodel exist to attract the people even if the situation is different, her supermodel aura already seeped to her very core couple with her noble aura raised as a dignified lady,it is enough to make everyone intoxicated.
I chose to appear high profile in a reason. I want to know everyone’s attitude. If I appear average then everyone will think how the Hua family raised me. And if I appear average then these noble families will disdain me and won’t want to be near me and talk to me. It will bring shame upon the Hua family.
How can I know their nature if I can’t get close to them. Even though I have my people. It’s not that I can’t investigate them, right now I specifically send them in every Country and Empire of the Sky Continent to investigate the origin of the illness that killed the previous owner of this body. And the other squad are to secretly protect the members of Hua family and the Manor.
In this world every Continent exist a lot of Countries. While Countries have many Empires and Empires with a lot of cities and provinces just like the modern world.
Everyone watched the Huas, specifically the Eldest miss who already sat at their seat.
A while later before the princes and princesses,the royal children arrived that brought the people who peeked at the Hua eldest miss to excitedly watch the entrance, most of them are young misses who blushes imagining the handsomeness of the princes and young masters fantasising about the elegant princesses, even though they aren’t as beautiful as the eldest miss Hua however they are more nobler that her. And they can’t help to stop themselves from fantasising about her for they are afraid to taint and dirty her ethereal and pure beauty.
The Emperor has many children. Five princes and twelve princesses.
Crown prince Long Kai. A talented and bright prince. He is at least 190 cm, twenty five years old,the eldest son. He is wearing a light green robe, appearing generous and kind. He is adept in politics and martial arts and said to be the favored son of the Emperor. He is the son of the Emperor by the Mother of Heaven, the Empress.

The third prince is a serious looking man. He is handsome comparable to his brothers but always wear a very grim and rigid facial expression. He is like a viscous panther. He is respected by a lot of people because of his accomplishments in military. He is already at the fifth stage Martial Lord in the age of twenty four. He gave off a domineering and savage aura.
The fifth prince is wearing an elegant black robe. His face was so perfect that seemed molded by Gods using the best material. Perfect sword like eyebrows, flawless nose, soft reddish lips, over all peerlessly handsome. He is also tall standing in a 188 cm. He is the most mysterious among the princes. He like to travel and paint. His strength is unknown but his intellect is rumored to be a one in a million years to appear. He is also respected by the world of literature because of his talent in words and arts. He is twenty one years old.
The seventh prince is known as the naughty and playful prince. He is eighteen years old. Brilliant and handsome. One of the shining star among the younger generation. A fifth stage Martial Commander.
They are all unmarried except for the second prince who has his own fiancee. While the princesses, five are married off into another Empires and three are still so young.
The princesses who attended are ninth and tenth princess,Long Juan and Long Lan. The twin sisters also known as two phoenix. They have the same flower countenance, differ only in attitude.
Ninth princess is kind,gentle and graceful. Tenth princess is prideful and arrogant but both are talented. They are both sixteen years old.
Hua Fan Ya’s gaze fleeted and paused slightly in the direction of the princes. One of the princes caught her and smiled gently in her which she answered with the same smile but was covered in veil.
The chatting continued. Madams is happily talking about their husband’s accomplishments and their sons and daughters.Young misses about their crush. The young masters about the charming women and hunting. The advisors about politics.
Until a pointed and very loud voice rang.
“His Majesty arrived! Her Majesty arrived!”
Everyone hurriedly but elegantly kneel and greet with great respect.
“Long live your Majesty! May the Gods bless you with thousands upon thousands of life and health!”
“Rise!!!” A very majestic voice spreads in the hall. What came into view is the Dragon and Pheonix Pair. Emperor Long Hui Cheng and Empress Long Guanting with the four Imperial and four Noble concubine.
Emperor Long Hui Cheng succeeded getting the throne at the age of seventeen in the hands of his brothers hence one can’t count how many lives died in his hands. He is wearing a golden robe with a ferocious eight clawed dragon brandishing its might.
His looks could not be considered as very handsome, clean and pleasant but his fearsome aura added to his charm. His aura alone can make you submit.
His counterpart, the Empress didn’t lose despite the greatness of the Emperor, her aura is warm, dignified and majestic harmonizing with the imposing and mountain like aura of the Emperor. She is in her mid fourties but still maintained her looks in her twenties wearing a bright red long gown embroidered with nine tailed phoenix spreading it’s powerful wings.
The eight concubines has different kind of beauty in fancy dresses. One was innocent,while the other charming, elegant or gentle or aloof. They posses it all.
The respected Empress Dowager was in a seclusion hence she is not present.
Time passed quickly and it is the time for presenting gifts to the Emperor and where the Young misses flaunt their talents in fronts of the Holy One.
After a few performance a voice then heard.
“Father Emperor, how about Eldest Miss Hua grace us with her talent.” Tenth princess suggested. She love to know what ability this beautiful Eldest Miss of Hua is.
‘I am a princess but the attention that was mine was steal by this bitch!”
Most of the miss from noble families thinks also the same. They wouldn’t lose anything. It’s the tenth princess’s idea after all.
Hua Fan Ya’s soft lips curled into a gentle smile under the veil.
“Eldest Miss Hua!” The Emperor agreed. He is also curious about what the capable Right Advisor’s daughter’s talent and he cannot refuse his beloved princess’s wish.
” This lowly servant shall do as Emperor’s golden words.”
She stand up confidently, behind her veil, her lips curled into an unknown arch.
‘As you wish.’
