[Word of Honor] [Episode 24] [Four Seasons Manor] [Our manor] [has splendid views all year round.] [The view of each season has its characteristics.] [In spring, there's a profusion of azaleas.] [In summer, phoenix flowers blossom.] [In autumn, orange osmanthus spreads a pleasant aroma.] [In winter, plum blossoms bloom in the snow.] Four Seasons Manor is full of exotic flowers and plants. What a pleasant view! Rabbit! Call me nice Uncle Wen three times, and I'll catch it for you. How about calling you nice Uncle Master? You two. Stop being naughty. The rabbits in this mountain are probably the offsprings of the brood your grandmaster's wife kept. For her sake, spare their sons and grandsons. She had the same hobby as my mom's. They both liked raising animals. Yes. Your grandmaster's wife and Mrs. Bi were the kindest. Once there're wounded animals in the mountain, they will heal them and raise them in the mountain. If anyone dares to hunt them down to eat, and your grandmaster's wife knows, there would be a huge problem. Once Master and Uncle Zhang had a bet. They caught a deer to go with wine.
I couldn't bear to see that so I told her. She chased your grandmaster all over the mountain to beat him. So is my father. He was such an imposing figure in public. But in private, he was often chased and beaten a lot by my mom as well. We are almost there. Let's go. Let's go. Look. That Mo Ya stone carving [Lingering] was engraved by my master on my junior Qin Jiu Xiao's one-month-old dinner party. [Four Seasons Manor] Master, I'm back. [Four Seasons Manor] [Gentle Winds and Light Clouds]* (*Lit: also used to describe) [Gentle Winds and Light Clouds]* [people treat their past with ease after ordeals] It wasn't like this before. It must be that this yard has been empty for a long time. That's why it's desolate. It's okay. It'll be fine after we tidy it up. Yeah, clean it up and it'll be fine. If no one lives here, it'll be desolate for sure. We are back here now. Right? What can a dumb disciple like you can do? Speak! Master, don't worry. I'm here. I'll do the cleaning. Uncle Master and I will make this place nice and tidy.
You're really good at dragging others into your errand. It's okay. I'll show you around first. We should buy some groceries down the mountain before we do some proper cleaning. Okay. Cheng Ling, look. Cheng Ling, don't underestimate every single one of the stones or the trees. They are well arranged. Outside the yard, there is a twenty-eight-constellation array. If our enemies intrude, we, staying here, can fight against them outside. These are designed by Master Long. Don't touch! These mechanisms haven't been maintained for years. They are probably rusty. I'll show you once they are repaired. This is the conference room. When I was a kid, Master always sat there and check our homework. When the Spring Festival came, everyone would gather around and stay up all night around the stove on New Year's Eve. [The flowers blossom in all four seasons, knowing everything in the world.] Master, is this drawn by Grandmaster, too? Ah Xu. Yes. There are 81 plum blossoms here, representing 81 persons of our generation of the Four Seasons Manor. Nine divided by nine is one*. (*Lit: Things are back to square one after several turns)
They're all ruined in my hands. Ah Xiang, are you hungry? Should we stop for refreshment and get something to eat? I've got no appetite. No appetite? Then, I'll make you some sour and spicy dishes to stimulate your appetite. All you know is eating! You are so annoying! Ah Xiang, where are you going? Find somewhere quiet! What about me? They all say girls like boys to be honest about their feelings. But why has she stopped treating me nicely since I confessed to her? Did I say it too abruptly? Idiot Cao. It's good to be an idiot who knows nothing. Stop! Zhu Yao Zhi, I know you've been blinded by Gao Chong. Given your loyalty and faithfulness, I won't give you a hard time for this. But if you're still so obsessed with protecting your demon master, I'll only regard you as a self-abandoned person. My master is not a demon! He was framed by other people. How could he collude with the Ghost Valley? There is solid proof. How dare you quibble? At the Heroes Conference, someone witnessed the chief of the Ghost Valley, Wen Ke Xing, helped Gao Chong defend the enemy in public and took away the orphan of the Zhang's. Nonsense! Master Wen is Cheng Ling's life savior.
He saved Cheng Ling, and escorted him to Tai Lake. He's less than thirty years old. How could he be the chief of the Ghost Valley? That demon knows all types of evil magic, he surely knows how to stay young. What's so strange about that? The Mirror Lake Sword Sect was destroyed by Wen Ke Xing and his minions. Then, he disguised as the savior and joined us, the Five Lakes Alliance. How arrogant! Gao Chong and the demon, Wen, collided together. They could fool people just for some time, but not forever! Chief Zhao has given an order to paint the appearances of all ten demons of Wen Ke Xing's to show the martial arts world. [Is Master's identity exposed?] Zhu Yao Zhi, you are young and ignorant. As long as you say Gao Chong was a big demon who fooled the world for fame, you can still be a good friend of the Five Lakes Alliance. If you still quibble for that demon, Chief Zhao won't blame me even if I kill you. No way! Repeat what I say. Gao Chong was a demon who fooled the world for fame. He will never live another life! He will rot in hell forever and ever! If you insult my master again, I will fight you with my life! I'll kill you, little demon brat! Stop! Chevalier Shen! Uncle Master! Uncle Master!
Who dares to hurt my apprentice-nephew? [My god!] [Finally, this fool is useful for once!] Ah Xiang, you're back. Why are you still standing here? I'm waiting for you. I'm worried that if you don't see me when you're back, you'll be worried. Let's go. Don't waste any time in this town. We're not eating something first? Let's continue our travel first, shall we? I will cook when we're back in Gentle Wind Sword Sect. You can eat as much as you can! Okay. Okay. Cao Wei Ning, are you really going to marry me? Absolutely! Ah Xiang, why are you still asking me this question? I have already sworn to Brother Wen. What if your master doesn't like me? That's not gonna happen. He will surely like you. You are such a nice girl. If he dislikes me because I am an orphan, what should I do? That's not gonna happen. Uncle Master Fan has the softest heart. If Master doesn't agree, I will beg Uncle Master Fan. That's not what I'm talking about. Cao Wei Ning, what would you do if neither of them allows you to marry me? Then, you kidnap me. We'll elope. Who will kidnap you? I won't even if you beg me. I said it wrong. I'll abduct and traffic you. Whatever you say,
I'll stay with you. Ah Xiang, in this life, if I can't be with you, I won't be happy anyway. Nothing could stop me. Moreover, they won't stop me at all. Uncle Master Fan will like you I'm sure. ♪Blushing, pretty face♪ ♪Restrained, painted face♪ ♪Looking at each other lovingly but saying nothing♪ Let's go. ♪Between the mountains and water, where love meets♪ ♪The fated ones will fall for each other♪ [It won't work. The truth will reveal itself eventually.] [One day, you will know who I am.] [But… But…] There is no time more important than which spent with our beloved ones. [One day of staying together means a lot.] [One more day of that is your fortune.] [As for other things,] [just ignore them.] Uncle Wen, what's in the package? It's so heavy. It's the liqueur for your master. Give it to me. It's OK, Uncle Wen. I'll take it as practicing martial arts. [Lingering] Uncle Wen, Master said that Nine divided by nine is one and Four Seasons Manor is ruined in his hands.
I told you to stop asking about this. That's why I'm asking you! Uncle Wen, please tell me! I feel bad when seeing Master so sad. Whatever happened is his privacy or his deepest pain. He is either not ready to tell us, or he doesn't want to mention it. Anyway, I hope you don't push him. I see. Uncle Wen, you and Master are so in sync. He told me the same before. He said that a gentleman doesn't pry on other people's soft spots. He told me never... to ask about Chevalier Wen and his wife, your parents. I didn't mean to. Uncle Master, no offense. What did you call me? I am supposed to call you that. Why do we have to solve riddles instead of clearing things up? Master said this a long time ago no matter what you think, he treats you as his junior. But he also enjoined me not to call you that before you're willing to return to the sect and that we shall not push you on this. See, you two are so tacit. Why are you being so evasive? Uncle Master. [Lingering] [Four Season Manor] Chief, Wen Ru Yu bit his own tongue and committed suicide.
We lost the trace of the key again. Dad. Mom. Kill him. Kill me. I don't wanna live anymore. Just kill me. Why don't you kill me?! Just tell me, did you see your parents with a key? I don't wanna live. Just kill me. I, I will turn into the fiercest ghost and hunt all of you down! Chief, this kid has such a weird personality at such a young age. He is born to be a little ghost. What about giving him what he wants? Sure. Let's grant his wish. Kid, now that you're here in the Ghost Valley, you have to admit your fate. Your dad was a good doctor. It's such a pity that I failed to save him. Luckily, I saved you. Drink this and you'll forget everything. [I can't forget. I can't forget.] Junior. Sit straight. That's enough, Lao Wen. Don't move. That's enough, Lao Wen. I've survived tonight. Don't consume your internal force.
You've survived tonight. What about tomorrow night? We'll discuss it then. With these seven nails in me, they give me a hard time every night. It's just that sometimes the pain is fierce while sometimes mild. What's wrong with Ye Bai Yi? He's so slow like a thousand-year-old turtle, which crawls so slowly. Why is there still no news? Philanthropist Wen, he is so kind to help us, but you curse him behind his back. I'll say the same in front of him. This old monster is so unreliable. You are the one without conscience. It's said that those with thin lips are heartless and ungrateful. It's pretty accurate. They say I am the soberest person with the least feeling in this world. Ah Xu, you called your junior all the time in your dream. What did you dream about? If you don't want to tell me, just forget it. Lao Wen, there's nothing between us that we can't discuss. Chief, if you want me to fight for justice or for the Four Seasons Manor, I will follow your order immediately. But if you want me to harm the loyal and the good, I can't do that.
Senior, Officer Jiang has resigned from his job and returned to his hometown. Why don't Prince just let him go? He is such a nice man. Senior, for the sake of Xiao Xue, please plead with Prince! You are the one who adores Xiao Xue the most, aren't you? Jiu Xiao, for the matter in the imperial court, it can't be simply judged by people's virtue. If Prince wants him to die, he must die. No reason is needed. We three all have owed Officer Jiang a big favor. We don't know anything about the imperial court. We are not capable of that. But people in the martial arts world are grateful. After we say goodbye to you, we will catch up with Officer Jiang and escort him out of the Northwest. If Duan Peng Ju still wants to kill Officer Jiang, he has to do that over our dead bodies. It's like throwing a straw against the wind. If we have to do that, we will! I, Luo Hao Ning, would rather die for gratitude than live as a lowlife! Senior. Alright, I'll go with you. Get up, all of you. Let's finish this liqueur and go for Officer Jiang together! OK! Chief, you're back at last! He was going to save Officer Jiang at the risk of his life, so I let him drink the liqueur mixed with Drunk Like a Dream.
He was asleep for five days and night. When he woke up, there was nothing he could do. He hated me so much that he left without saying goodbye. The last time I met him, he was already in his coffin. He mistakenly thought that I was trapped in a town alone so he risked his life to save me. Eventually, he fought to his death in that town. His loved one went through all kinds of difficulties to deliver his body to me. I didn't know the relationship between that girl and Jiu Xiao. When I finally found out, I had already forced that girl to take the poison which would kill her immediately. If another world exists, I'm sure they must be gathering together cursing me, the evil senior. They won't curse you. They... they know you. You're wrong. The reason why they died tragically is that they didn't know me at all. Jiu Xiao admired me ever since childhood. Master also treated me like his own son. Everyone in the Manor, old or young, regarded me as their family and senior.
They respected me and loved me. That's what blinded them. They didn't know that the real Zhou Zi Shu is actually a coward, a deserter. Ah Xu. Sit down, please. Master passed away because of an acute disease. Before he passed away, he entrusted the Four Seasons Manor to me. I, a young chief, wasn't powerful enough to be a protector. Everyone in the martial arts world, good or evil, kept making trouble for us. I struggled for two years and saw one senior after another die for protecting the Four Seasons Manor. I couldn't do this anymore. So I ran away. Stop blaming yourself like this. What happened next? I did run away. No, you must have your reasons. Reasons... are no more than excuses in nice disguise. My father was the former Prince Jin's capable assistant. The current Prince Jin is my cousin. He was worried that there was no one around he could trust. So he wrote me a letter to ask me to help him. Your Highness. What's that about? Call me cousin!
Cousin. What's wrong with you? You look bad. How is Prince? It's our teacher. He's gone. Our teacher was in his prime time. How could this happen? My father listened to slanderous talks and threw our teacher in jail and tortured him. Our teacher wouldn't surrender to things he didn't do. So, he committed suicide in jail. Do you know what our teacher did before he killed himself? He wrote poems all over the walls and the floors in desperation. "Rivers flow ceaselessly. The window leads to the underworld. Rumors endanger justice. Clouds hide the sun." I looked at the bloodletters all over the walls and the floors. What world is this! Our teacher served his country and the people well for his whole life. Cousin, don't be too upset. In the future, we will... My father... he was so angry. He even dumped our teacher's body in the wild and sent guards so that no one could collect and bury him properly. He just let stray dogs consume our teacher's body! I am useless! I am useless! I am!
I couldn't even let our teacher rest in peace. Cousin. Please rest assured. I will take our teacher's body back in secret and bury him properly. Good. Zi Shu, when can you come here and help me? So, I led all of our brothers of the Four Season Manor to join Prince Jin's ally. I didn't expect that I was just fooling myself. Once we stuck in the mud of power and desire, there was no easy way out. I watched my brothers die in front of me one by one. In the end, even Jiu Xiao was dead! After Jiu Xiao's death, there was nothing for me to live for. Then, guess what, I ran away, again. In the end, all I have left are these seven nails. The ones I wanted to protect and the business I wanted to establish were all gone no matter how hard I tried, just like sands in the hand. Luckily, God was merciful. He offered me a chance to start over. The succession is not over yet.
I just don't know if I can watch this child grow up to be a capable man. Why can't you? Ye Bai Yi has promised me. That old monster has a broad range of knowledge. If he says you can be cured, you can! Nothing will happen for sure in this world. I don't care. This must happen! No matter how this ends, I want to tell you I'm really happy that you can come back with me. Junior. It's almost dawn. You should rest. I'm going out for some fresh air first. Lao Wen, you and my master are master-and-disciple in name only. If you don't want to acknowledge that the Four Seasons Manor is your school, I'm in no place to force you. The son of the Wen couple is back to the Four Seasons Manor again. If Master knows this in the after-world, he will be beyond happy. [Four Seasons Manor] Master, you are awake. Did I wake you up when sweeping the floor? It doesn't matter. What time is it? How could I have such a sound sleep? It's almost noon. Uncle Wen said that you didn't sleep well last night and told me to not wake you up
so you can sleep longer. Where is he? Uncle Master. Ah Xu. You are awake. I have examined it closely. This painting is not severely damaged. It only needs re-mounting. I'm almost done repairing it. The only thing left is to repaint the colors. After re-mounting, the paint won't be damaged from rolling. I'll find an expert in painting down the mountain and ask him to carefully fill the color according to your master's style. It will be the same as the original. [Ping'an Silver Manor] Master, take care. When will my letter reach Kun? Master, please rest assured. You are an honorable guest with the token. No one dares to delay your business. Our carrier pigeons are well-trained. They will deliver your letter to Kun within two days. Good. Go. Okay, take care. This demon Wen. He looks about the same age as us. How could he become the chief of the Ghost Valley? You have no idea. There are so many magic tricks in the Ghost Valley to stay young. Though Wen Ke Xing looks young in the painting, he may be seventy years old! -Yeah. -It all depends on the magic tricks to keep his young appearance! What's the name of the chief of the Ghost Valley that you were talking about? Who are you? Do you know how to speak properly? Just come and ask questions.
Do you know any manners? Where are you from? What's your relationship with demon Wen? Who allows you to spread rumors? We are not slandering. The Five Lakes Alliance has already sent every sect the pictures of the important figures of the Ghost Valley. That's right.
