[Word of Honor] [Episode 25] Why? You didn't sleep well? I had a bad dream, and I couldn't fall asleep again. So I decided to take a walk. It's raining. That explains the coldness in my dream. Yeah. Winter comes after the First Frost; The Spring Festival comes after Laba. Ah Xu, it would be great if we could live in Four Seasons Manor forever. Why can't we? I'll do it. You don't know where the coal is placed. How about having some wine since we can't sleep? Sure. Wait. Secretive. Don't you know these things go well with wine? You have it. I'm good with wine. Drinking without food will hurt your stomach. This tin contains six kinds of nuts, each of which has a special effect and is good for health. This is Wolong's specialty which is popular all over the country. You should have some every day. Lao Wen, don't let the world of martial arts hamper you. Someone like you with such eloquence should have been rich by doing business. Come on. Have a try. Nah, I don't want it. Ah Xu, you are already this old
but you are still a picky eater and a night owl. How could you set an example for your disciple? Do you think I'm willing to stay up late? Go get some nails on your chest before you talk. You slept well the past few days, didn't you? That's because of the Drunk-Like-a-Dream I found in the manor. I remember the night when you smelt the scent of the Drunk-Like-a-Dream and shouted the name Zhou Zi Shu for the first time. Can you tell me now what you saw? I dreamed of me being seven years old. The three of my family came to the Four Season Manor. Mom and Dad started a small clinic at the foot of the hill. I practiced martial arts with Master at the manor during the day and went home for dinner in the evening. Those drug men in my dream were like wild dogs, chasing and biting me for no reason. You, sometimes being Zhou Zi Shu, sometimes being Zhen Yi Guo, stood in front of me and protected me. Zhen Yi Guo? You forgot that? The little dog followed you around. What's its name? It's Yi Guo. Yi Guo? Wait for me. Let me see it. I kept it.
Chevalier Qin said he was gonna cook it in a pot, remember? So my parents named it this*. (*Yi Guo means "a pot" literally ) I knew that you have a deep connection with the Four Season Manor, I just didn't expect that... The Four Season Manor has vanished for a long time. I saw you using the Swift Moving Steps and I just took it as a clue. So I followed you. Even when you drew the White Clothes Sword out. I was not quite sure. At last, you said your family name was Zhou. I guess... Take the lover's hand and watch the cloud unfold. What a good name! Lao Wen, your name, Wen Ke Xing... My Dad's family name was Wen, but he was an orphan and later adopted the family name of the Healer Valley's old chief. Since the old chief decided to banish my dad, there would be no more reasons to adopt his family name, right? I'm an alone bird, a traveler of no root, this new name suits me well. But now you... Before meeting you and Cheng Ling, I was going to wander around the world and drink myself to death to end this miserable life. I thought I was homeless but now it's good that
we are all back. Come on, I'll toast to you, the alone bird and the traveler of no root. Take a lover's hand and watch the cloud unfold. I'm gonna stay here forever. As long as Senior Ye can heal me, Cheng Ling and I will live here forever. Lao Wen, you are welcomed any time. Traveling is fun, but home is sweeter. Ah Xiang, what takes you so long to get the water? Let's go! Ah Xiang, I think I saw Tao Hong and Lv Liu. Who? Hua Hong and Liu Lv? The old couple who attacked us at Yueyang Sect and abducted Sister Xiao Lian. Are you sure about that? It was them, I'm sure. I'm sure that the girl was Sister Xiao Lian in disguise. When I was getting the water, I heard her voice. I guessed her acupuncture points were restrained, so she can't move or speak but can only eat and drink. Hanged Ghost's Soul Winding Box broke each of Tao Hong and Lv Liu's arms. You were too far to see it clearly. That old couple both have one of their arms broken, covering them with their sleeves on purpose. If it is rally them... Ah Xiang, I'm sure it is them.
We found them by luck and shall not lose them again. Let's think of something. Ah Xiang, what's wrong with you? Ah Xiang, don't be afraid. No matter how strong they are, I will give it all to protect you and Sister Xiao Lian. Who can you protect with your ability? Brother Cao, how about just letting it go? You almost lost your life last time. Ah Xiang, how could you say that? How could I leave Sister Xiao Lian like that? If you are scared, just stay here. I'll go. The worst case is to get beaten to death. Even so, it's much better than being a coward. Go then! We'll see who you can save at the expense of your life. Stop! Cao Wei Ning! You.. how dare you treat me like this? You... you have promised my master that you would never abandon me. Ah Xiang, I will never abandon you. But loyalty is more important than love. How could I leave my good friend behind? I won't deserve your kindness to me if I do that. Did I say I wouldn't let you go? I'm just stopping you from dying in vain. If we can't confront them by force, we need to outwit them. Ah Xiang, sorry. I misunderstood you. Stop talking nonsense with me here, save her first. You have to follow them first, tailing them and leaving marks. It's not far from the Broken Sword Manor here.
They are a part of the Five Lake Alliance. I'll ask them for help to stop the old couple. Ah Xiang, nice job. You are really smart. Don't waste your words here, I have memorized this grudge. We'll talk about it later. Go, now! Fool! A big fool! How could he live alone after I leave? Thinking that he may get bullied makes me angry. Elder Huang, haven't we agreed to meet at the ruined temple in Great Stone Town? Why do you come in advance? I got exposed in Great Stone Town and was hunted by the Scorpion. I just got rid of them. We were tricked by that bastard, Zhao Jing. Both the righteous and the evil are hunting me. The former want to arrest me; the latter wants to kill me. Miss Gao, do you know the relationship between Zhao Jing and the Scorpion? I've told you before that my uncle Zhao would definitely come to save me. Stop dreaming. I messaged him to exchange hostage but he didn't give a shit. I guess he hopes that we kill you so there will be no more witnesses. Perhaps the trap which killed Gao Chong was also set by that bastard. Huang He, now you mean
that we risked our reputation to abduct this girl for you, living in the wild and hiding our tails all the way, but it turns out to be a waste! No one can predict fate. Who can foresee Gao Chong would just die like that? Who could foresee that his brothers do not care about his only daughter at all? What is done is done. Zhao Jing will not exchange the Glazed Armor for her. Hey, girl, if you can't find anyone to pay for your freedom, then you are a worthless piece of rubbish. Believe it or not, I'll sell you to the lowest brothel. Huang He, you are as old as her grandpa. Don't you feel ashamed saying such dirty words? Tao Hong, if not so, how could the vengeance be taken for those valiant who died at Mount Qingya? The Five Lake Alliance has caused so much death. The devil Gao's death alone is far from enough. We can't let the devil's daughter get away from it. My dad is not a devil. My dad didn't kill them. Shut up! You know nothing. This little girl doesn't know anything, does she?
Then I'll tell you now. Twenty years ago, the battle of Mount Qingya caused numerous people to lose their lives because they were deceived by the Five Lake Alliance. Ther besieged Rong Xuan only for his Glazed Armor, yet they did it in the name of slaying the devils. Countless people were cheated to sacrifice their lives in the battle. The only child of Tao Hong and Lv Liu died from severe injuries in this battle. The Five Lake Alliance owes its rise to those righteous ones who died miserably in this battle. What a tragedy! Those who were buried in Mount Qingya had no idea what they died for until now. You... you are lying. Huang He, we are all smart foxes. Do you think you can trick me? Since she is worthless, well, then why don't we stop torturing this innocent girl and just kill her? No! Stop! Sister Xiao Lian. Cao Wei Ning. Elder Huang, I have always respected you as a senior,
but I can't believe you are doing such an evil thing. Is your master here? Better late than never. Come to the righteous side now. Help me kill them and save Miss. Gao. Where does this idiot come from? Old man, you hear this? He asked Huang to come to the righteous side. Stop laughing! Young man, are you her lover? Risking your life to save her, don't you fear death? No. I'm not afraid of it, for I am doing the right thing. Let go of her now and you won't be held responsible for this. Otherwise, All righteous clans are looking for her. What? Huang He, the cover is blown, huh? You were trying to trick us to leave her to you, so you could take all the benefits alone. We've done all the dirty works, now you wanna get rid of us? Not so easy! Let's just see who's better. Sister Xiao Lian, go! Quickly! Where are you going? Elder Huang has died in our hands. Girl, come with me. Sister Xiao Lian, run. I'll stop them. Let's go together.
Run! Wei Ning, Tao Hong, Lv Liu, how dare you! Uncle Shen, I warn you. Leave my niece alone. Scram! Ah Xiang. Brother Cao. Brother Cao, are you okay? Are you okay? Shen Shen, don't be wordy. We are taking this girl today. Old man. Uncle Shen. Dear. Dear. Honey. Leave. A couple is just like birds in the woods. They run for their lives as a disaster comes. Run. Shut up! Shen Shen, do it now. Shen Shen, please let go of my wife. I... I... There's no need to beg them. Dear, isn't it good for us to die together? I'll be your husband in our next life to let you bully me. Fine, I'll give you what you want. Uncle Shen, wait. Sir, Madam, Elder Huang said at that time, it was the battle of Mount Qingya led by the Five Lake Alliance that caused the death of your child. Is that true?
Why are you asking us? Ask Chevalier Shen. The Five Lake Alliance cost us our child, hurting us both mentally and physically. I live only to seek revenge! If I can't take my vengeance alive, I'll be a ghost haunting Gao Chong. They were telling the truth. That's why my dad, all these years... Uncle Shen, Please let go of them. Xiao Lian, you were kidnapped for so long. It was Elder Huang's conspiracy. They were used by him. Though she kidnapped me, she has a good nature. Every time Elder Huang tried to abuse me, she would refute him. Uncle Shen, when could the circle of revenge be stopped? We Five Lake Alliance owns a life to them. We should return it today. Stupid girl, we don't need your pity! Is that the way to make things even? My son died at a young age.
Shut up! Dear. Leader Shen, we have been out in the world for twenty years. Although we can't be count as kind or righteous, we never lie. Today, if you spare us, we will quit this martial arts world. Shut up, you can't decide for me. Shen Shen. He's afraid. But I'll never stop taking my vengeance with the Alliance. Kill me if you dare! When the battle of Mount QingYa happened, my niece was not born. The resentment of the last generation shouldn't involve the kids. She kept my niece safe. Considering this, I let you go. If you still want to revenge on the Five Lake Alliance, just come for me. I'll wait. Get out! You... Wait. Sir, Madam, take care of yourselves. Is Wei Ning okay? You've been together all the way? You found Uncle Shen, right? Alight. I'm relieved as they are safe. Chevalier Shen, just kill me as you want. Ah Xiang, what are you talking about? Why would Uncle Shen kill you?
Where is Wen Ke Xing? I said I didn't know. I still don't know if you keep asking. People won't lie when they are about to die. I am not lying to you. Ah Xiang, what are you talking about?! Sister Xiao Lian, I've never hurt you but helped you. Given this, please promise me that don't tell brother Cao, I am... Tell him what? What are you talking about, Ah Xiang? Xiao Lian, come here! Don't stand with her. Uncle, there must be some misunderstanding and we shall solve it. What misunderstanding? She's a henchman of the Ghost Valley's chief. Just ask her. Is Ah Xiang her true name? It is true. I'm not changing my name no matter what. Amethyst Fiend, Gu Xiang is here. That brochure of ghosts even records a small ghost like me? I feel respected. Why do you leave Wen Ke Xing and stay with nephew Cao? Just tell me the truth. Even if I tell you, you wouldn't believe me. I don't want to be an alone ghost anymore. I want to find a way back to the mortal world and spend my life with him. Do you believe it? Since you knew that your identity had been exposed, why did you come to me still? Weren't you afraid that I would kill you?
I have no choice. As the saying goes, a woman should stick with the man she marries. I could only do that since I have found myself a man of righteousness. I have to conform. Leader Shen, Please, for the sake of my good deeds, tell me, am I on the Brochure of Ghosts? No. No. That would be great. Brother Cao will never know. Leader Shen, Sister Xiao Lian, I have a favor to ask. After killing me, can you not tell Brother Cao the truth? Just tell him I was killed by Huang He so that he won't know I lied to him. Can you do that for me? No, you are not! Uncle Shen, Ah Xiang is a good girl. Don't kill her. Don't kill her, please. Silly girl, don't be such a fool like me. I have lived half of my life but still couldn't telling ghosts from men. Come with me. Master, are you going to teach me how to fight? Since I finished my learning, I haven't spent much time on fighting skills. If your Uncle Master can teach you a thing or two, you will benefit a lot from it. Nonsense. Is it right not to teach your disciple
but let someone else do it? Are you "someone else"? Of course not. Uncle Wen, may I call you Uncle Master now? If you don't answer, I'll take it as yes. Brat, you were a simple-minded cutie. But now cunning like a monkey after acquaintance. Dear Uncle Master, where did you learn your skills? Brat, stop! He becomes so naughty thanks to you. Cheng Ling, you have just begun to learn martial arts, advanced ones are too hard for you. Today, I'm teaching you the most basic one, the Eight Trigram Palm. Your grandmaster introduced martial arts to me with this one. Master, speaking of which, we've been back for days and the rooms are cleared up. I haven't pay respect to the grandmaster. Before you teach me today, how about paying tribute to him? You have to tell him you have got a good disciple like me and that you have found Uncle Master. He will be relieved in heaven. Cheng Ling, I... I owe Leader Qin a lot. I should have paid my respect to him. Fine, we'll go together. [Qin Huai Zhang and his wife, Yao] [Qin Jiu Xiao] Grandmaster and Master, I, disciple Zhang Cheng Ling, am finally here to kowtow to you. Please rest assured. I will try my best to bring glory to the Four Seasons Manor. Grandmaster,
you should have already seen my dad and Master Long. The addresses are a little bit messed up. But it doesn't matter. We are a family. Please tell them Cheng Ling is good now and making progress every day. I am devoted to learning the Arcane of Longyuan Cabinet taught by Master Long, although it is hard. Brat, you're so wordy since young. I can't imagine how you would be when you grow up. I have a lot to say to Grandmaster and Master Uncle Qin. Dad told me that the dead don't totally vanish but maintain consciousness. They are always watching over those they love. No, they can't. They can. Uncle Wen, say something to Grandmaster. Cheng Ling, even if spirits can maintain consciousness, one doesn't have to speak out. Sometimes, it's better to keep it in your heart. Right. Fine, I'll say it in my mind. Cheng Ling, stop that. If you continue, your grandmaster will be annoyed. If you have any other things to say, save them for next time. We will come to visit them often. Lao Wen. Ah Xu. Can you leave first? I need some time alone. Fine. Cheng Ling. [Tombs of Qin Huai Zhang and his wife, Yao] Does the nether world indeed exist?
Master, no, Uncle Qin, Senior Qin, if you are in heaven, have you seen my parents? I hope there are spirits after death. But I also fear that if you see... see the path I have taken, you will find me disgracing the name of the Four Seasons Manor. In the beginning, when I couldn't take it, I would pretend that I wasn't the one suffering, and that was just Zhen Yan's nightmare. When I woke up, I would find myself still in the yard. Time stopped at the moment when you recruited me and never went forward. But I found out later that it wasn't Zhen Yan in a nightmare, but I had a sweet dream as Zhen Yan. God doesn't carry out justice and Karma isn't paid. If this is the case, I'd rather be a devil and find my justice against fate. It wasn't blood in my veins for the past twenty years, but hatred. The thought of vengeance is the only thing that supported me to crawl up from hell and become the lord of all ghosts, and the king of venom. That old bastard didn't expect this at all. Twenty years later, I could carry out the curses of Zhen Yan made before his death
one by one. Kill them all. Take the lives of you all. All of them. But after killing all of them, my hatred hasn't been alleviated. All those who betrayed, abandoned and forced us are stained with the blood of my parents. They are demons under human skins. I will not spare any one of them. The world has abandoned me and I shall kill them all. When I left the valley, I had sworn to myself that I would end this world of hypocrisy with fire and drive these devils back to hell. If this is sin, be it countless death or flagrant crime, I will take all the blame alone. If I have to die with this filthy world in the fire, I am willing to do so. But... but... since fate has thrown me into hell, why does it give me a way back to the human world? My life of Wen Ke Xing is ruined and I am not qualified to call you master. If there were next life, I would do anything to repay your grace. If there weren't, even if I were destined to degenerate to hell, I would still thank you for giving me a moment of brightness. Ah Xiang. You are awake, fool. Ah Xiang, where is Sister Xiao Lian?
Don't worry. Have some water first. You fool! I've told you just watch and don't show yourself. Luckily, I brought people of the Broken Sword Manor and arrived in time or you would lose your life. You've saved her? Where did they go? Sister Xiao Lian fainted out of shock and was taken back to the Five Lake Alliance by Leader Mu. Fortunately. Nothing has been delayed. It's better not to tell him anything. Ah Xiang, you're so smart. Smart? Not really. Someone said I was a coward. No, Ah Xiang. Sorry for that. I was confused. And I was impatient and stupid. Just hit me, okay? Don't be angry. You... You fool. Just stay where you are. I won't beat you. I'll keep my hands clean. Ah Xiang. Is it that we have conflicting fates? Ever since you met me, you have been injured very often. It's not your fault. My martial arts are too lame. That's why I often got beaten up. But don't worry. After we're back to Mount Qingfeng, I will enhance my skills so I can protect you and never let anyone abuse you. Who dares to do that except you? No, no. How dare I?
Moreover, Master Uncle treats girls very nicely. The sisters from other sects who came to visit us were all taken as treasures. If Master Uncle knows I tease you, he will surely break my legs. And Bother Wen... Wait, Ah Xiang, how could I tease you? I'm misguided by you. What if we really have conflicting fates? What shall we do? What are you talking about, Ah Xiang? It's impossible. I'm serious about it. What if we really have conflicting fates? Then I would give my life to you. Ah Xiang. But before that, can you give me something to eat? I'm starving to death. Sure, here you go. Be careful! It's hot. Here, you first. I'll just watch you eat. The bigger one is for you. The bun roasted by Ah Xiang tastes so good. It's the best cruise in the world. ♪The sky was gray as I crossed the cold river♪ ♪The moon in my cup at night reflects the sadness in my smile♪ ♪Who allowed me to roam around the world on horseback?♪ ♪Who is drunk in their dreams but can't find home when they wake?
