Shi Chong, the Prefect of Chengyin was rewarded for his act of fighting the Wus and conferred the title, Duke of Anyang. He was rich and he lived in big luxurious houses.

In his later years, he became Warden of Jiaozi. There was a beauty by the name, Lu Zhu who he fell in love with. He bought her using 10 hu of pearls, made her his concubine and hid her in Jingu, Luoyang because of her beauty.
