She didn’t say anything to the younger character, remaining in silence as he spoke of this enigmatic figure. Although forlorn expression surfaced, it remained upon but few seconds before erased away. This man, whoever he was, troubled her son, enough for someone so secluded as himself to consult her for advice. That name, however, Yang Chai, it was the same name as the man she has never met, but a name she could remember so clearly. After all, it was the name her husband was more than aware of anyway.
"That name belonged to your late father, Yang Hu. Your father told me that he and his wife were killed during a certain raid, causing you and Huiyu to seek for our protection and care. However…" She moved closer to the confused child of her, and reluctantly placed a hand upon his shoulder from behind. "…If all the things he said were true, then perhaps..he didn’t pass away, Hu.."
"I had feared that was the case." Said Hu as he looked down toward the ground, avoiding Ang’s eyes. "Here I thought that he was dead, but no, he still wanders around this land..Its surprising, but that is not why I am here mother."
”..I’m here because I can’t feel anything for him, and I don’t know if thats normal. If he is my father then I should be up and arms, but I can’t make myself feel that way….Am I a bad person, mother? For not feeling happy? Because although I don’t feel anything for him…”
Hu gripped his fan once again. “I cant help but hate myself for it.”
”..Is that so..? Tell me more about it..” She lowered her gaze before sitting down upon a couch beside them, motioning Hu to sit beside her, ”..Who is it?”
"This person…’Yang Chai' ” Said Hu. “..He seems to be part of my family. Normally, that wouldn't shock me, as I'm sure that in these vast lands, there had to be one or two people still related to me, other than Huiyu, but no, this man..”
”..He…He knows my blood-mother, in fact he seems to know a lot about my family. What got me the most was that he said he..married her, which, would mean…”
”..It…It makes my head hurt mother. I don’t know what to think right now. I simply require your input, and any knowledge you may hold.”
She fell into deep, long silence, cerulean orbs of sky reflection dilated in discomfort, "…Unfortunately I don’t know much regarding your birth parents. It would be wiser to ask your father, I suggest."
"I would not ask father about this. Its not something he’d be capable to handle I’d imagine." Hu would step closer, fanning himself slowly now. "Its just..I met someone the other day. Someone related to me."
"What is it that you wish to inquire?"
Hu would grip onto his fan lightly, his hand shaking slightly. “My birth parents..Did you know anything about them? Not that it matters now, but a..recent encounter has made me curious.”
"Mother." Hu said, as he bowed his head. "I have something personal to ask you."
Yang chai smiled softly as he gently rubbed his head. “ah..your took Kind Lord Yang..Thank you” he said as he begins to pick a horse yet it feels like he knew him but he doesn’t know where.
“Yes yes of course.." Hu grinned slightly. A little praise was enough to raise Hu’s spirits, even if his headache was a terrible one. "Go on now Yang Chai, you had best make it out of the city before dark."
"Up there?" he groaned. "Well i need a horse i cant walk forever he said looking at him.
"Are you alright you seemed shocked.."
"I’m fine Yang Chai..Just fine..” Hu grumbled, turning away from the strange man. This whole situation was making Hu’s head hurt something terrible. “You can have any horse in the city stables, I’ll allow it. Go on ahead and take your pick, and leave if you must.”
"Thank you..but Cai wenji? is she till there? but i haven’t seen my sister in law for a while now.." he said rubbing the back of his head sighing.
“Sister In law?…Cai Wenji?..You?” Hu was, beyond baffled by this point, but he figured this all had to be some twisted coincidence, in Hu’s mind it had to be, or so his sense of denial dictated. “Yes my aunt is still around..She’s currently staying up in Xu Chang. I was just speaking with her a few days ago.”
Yang Chai couldn’t believe what he said. “I refused i’m sure my daughter and my son are alive i would not start a new family!” he said holding back his tears more.
"My wife…Cai..she would say to watch over them if she was here..but i have to find them.."
Yang Hu was a bit calmer now. Perhaps Hu was wrong, he had to be. As far as Yang Hu knew, his parents were dead,his blood-father included and yet, this man..He irked Hu. “I am deeply sorry about what happened to your wife Yang Chai, but if your children are still out there, perhaps you should continue looking for them-…”
There the man went again. He mentioned a name that was all to familiar to Hu. “..Cai?..You mean like, Cai Wenji?”
"No i didn’t just married her i married her long ago when i found her then..we had 3 children..one died during the war so we only had a daughter left then..a newborn son who i never get to hold…."
Yang Hu’s grip upon the fan he held in his hand only intensified as he listened to this man speak. The look in his eyes..Yang Hu knew who he was, and yet, for the sake of his own sanity, Hu would not admit it. “Is that so?.." Hu’s voice was a bit shaken, but his overall calm demeanor stayed in place.
"That is very unfortunate to hear Yang Chai. But there is always time for you to start another family, I’m sure.”
"…." yang chai heart dropped his beloved wife dead he regretted ever making her upset and everything in the past. "I…I was.." he said holding back his tears looking at the man.
"I married her.."
"……What?" Did Hu hear that correctly? The younger general simply stared at this man with utter disbelief. "..Surely you jest…You married her? But how..that would mean..” Hu rubbed one side of his head. “I would have hoped that my blood-mother did not sleep around on her spouse, but I suppose I was wrong.”
He looked at the man with an shocked expression. “Wait…what do you mean..the only yang’s left..? what about your mother?” he asked as he putted his hands on the boy’s shoulder since he did looked for his family yet there wasn’t any sign of them anywhere.
Yang Hu would promptly grip onto his fan,staring at this strange person with even more suspicion than before. “My blood-mother, is dead, and she has been that way since before I can remember, the same goes for my blood-father, if you are going to ask that next, sir.”
"They were both..well, lets just say they met a terrible fate when I was but a small infant, or so I’m told. I take it you knew my mother?"
"Ah okay Lord Yang but anyways my name is Yang Chai." he smiled with a bow looking at the man.
"Is that right? Yang Chai?…" That name, Hu had heard it somewhere before. Although it was a distant memory, and the young general couldn’t quite recall why it was so familiar.
"Well its not every day I meet someone who shares my family name, and here I thought that I and my sister were the only Yang’s left."
"…" Yang Chai didn’t say anything as he looked closer at the man.
"You..looked like my youngest son…guess i was wrong."
"You wouldn’t be the first. Most parents would die to have a child as good looking as me." Hu spoke with a smirk, and of course, a bit of arrogance in his voice. Although Hu couldn’t help but feel that this man was familiar, at least in regards to his face.
"But I digress my good sir. You may seem to be above the common rabble,but do not use my name with such ease. I am Lord Yang, to you.”
