Yuan Shu bade his soldiers scatter and seek out all the families of the eunuchs, sparing none. In that slaughter many beardless men were killed in error. Cao Cao set himself to extinguish the fires. He then begged Empress He to undertake the direction of affairs, and soldiers were sent to pursue Zhang Rang and rescue the young Emperor and the young Prince of Chenliu. Meanwhile, Zhang Rang and Duan Gui had hustled away the Emperor and the Prince. They burst through the smoke and fire and traveled without stopping till they reached the Beimang Hills. It was then the third watch. They heard a GREat shouting behind them and saw soldiers in pursuit. Their leader, Min Gong, a commander in Henan, was shouting, “Traitors, stop, stop!” Zhang Rang, seeing that he was lost, jumped into the river, where he was drowned. the two boys ignorant of the meaning of all this confusion and terrified out of their senses, dared not utter a cry. They crept in among the rank grass on the river bank and hid. The soldiers scattered in all directions but f ailed to find them. So they remained till the fourth watch, shivering with cold from…

If he will not, then we pray but die in your presence.” Empress He issued the requisite command. He Jin was just going to her when Secretary Chen Lin advised him not to enter, saying, “the eunuchs are certainly behind the order and mean your harm.” But He Jin could only see the command of the Empress and was oblivious to all else.
