Sanguo Yanyi

While Dong Cheng was in the process of plotting with Wang Zifu, Wu Shi, Ma Teng, and Ji Ping to get Cao Cao killed—a plot which had been overheard by his servant, Qin Qingtong. Later, he found Qingtong whispering with his concubine, Yun Ying in a dark corner. This angered him, and his first reaction was to have the former executed. Yun Ying, however, convinced Dong Cheng to spare him, and as a result he was beaten 40 times with a cane and thrown in a dungeon. Unfortunately, as a result of this treatment, Qin Qingtong would later escape and warn Cao Cao—an action which eventually resulted in the deaths of every conspirator except Ma Teng.
