[Wei Yun’s Edition]
When Wei Yun was fourteen years old, all the men in his family died on the battlefield, leaving his home shattered. At that time, only his mother and his new sister-in-law stayed by his side to aid him. Mother said that his new sister-in-law had it rough, being widowed so shortly after the wedding. When he achieved success in the future, he must find a good marriage for her.
At the time, he agreed.
When Wei Yun was twenty years old, Gu Chu Sheng, a Minister of Cabinet , came to propose marriage to Chu Yu. Wei Yun arrived at the gate of the Gu family with a blade in tow, claiming, once a Wei, always a Wei. Gu Chu Sheng mocked, “Your brother is dead, what claim does your family have?”
Wei Yun squeezed the blade tightly and answered, grunting every word, “She’s Wei Yun’s person.”
