The falling out between Cao Cao and Xun Yu makes me want to cry :(
Xun Yu had been by Cao Cao’s side for 30 years, as his right hand man and adviser. Indeed when Xun Yu realized something that Cao Cao had failed to, he asked his lord if he was angry, and Cao Cao replied that it would as if he was angry at himself. Cao Cao saw Xun Yu as another him.
But alas, as Cao Cao usurped more and more power from the defunct Han Dynasty and made away with outdated laws and traditions, the ever loyal Xun Yu disapproved of his old master and stood in defiance of him for the sake of the Han.
….someone hold me…
