♪I've forgotten those who are gone♪ [Word of Honor] [Episode 17] Ah Xiang! Why are you up? Ah Xiang. Ah Xiang. Luckily, you're fine. I dreamed that I didn't protect you well. Why is it so painful? Lie properly. You were beaten up and were unconscious for the past few days. Who can you protect? Ah Xiang, I dreamed a lot and couldn't wake up. I failed to protect you in every one of them. I was so anxious. I even died in the last one. I was waiting for you happily by the Naihe Bridge. (*Lit: The entrance to the nether world) I thought I'd have to wait for 60 or 70 years, till you become an elderly woman with white hair. But, not long later, you came. I thought, "No way. Aren't you too young to die?" I was panicking. Are you cursing me? I'm not. Knock on wood. Ah Xiang. You're so kind. You will live a long life. Where's Sister Xiao Lian? She was abducted by those two old demons. We need to save her! Forget it. Lie down! You're half dead. Who can you save?
Who saved me? Was it my master? Where are my masters? Calm down. Please. Leader Yu of the Mount Hua Sect saved you. Rest here nicely. Don't move around. I'll go and get some medicine for you. Miss Gu, is Nephew Cao feeling better? He's fine. That's great. Nephew Cao is a chivalrous man. This is the adjacent residence of the Mount Hua Sect. Let him rest here at ease. Enough, Leader Yu. I've told him. Stop making your life hard and being "pretendious" in front of a little siren like me. Help yourself. Ah Xiang, it's "pretentious". Alright. You can chat here. I shall not disturb Nephew Cao. Sister Qian Qiao, can't you save my face in front of an outsider? Ah Xiang, you're still so uneducated. How can you be a good match for a nobleman? Who wants to be his match? I can even be a good match for a prince. That idiot... Yes. Even the emperor doesn't deserve you. Look. Even our Heartless Amethyst Fiend would start to feel sad. Ah Xiang. Listen to my advice. It's urgent now, we shall only think about the present. Young Master Cao is injured. You should stay here for now
I'll help my master settle down first. Sister Qian Qiao. Why did the leader of the Mount Hua Sect save Aunt Luo with you? How did you convince him? Tell me first in case I might spill the beans later. His son was killed by the Five Lakes Alliance. I promised to help him with his revenge, so he helped me save my master. That's all? I think that man is quite cunning. Sister, you'd better be careful. My good girl. Stop worrying about me. Just take care of Young Master Cao. OK. I'm going to get him some medicine. I'll leave first. Girl! Time to eat! Are you deaf or dead? Why? Are you trying to starve yourself to death? No way! If you're dead, all of my effort will be wasted. Open your mouth! Open your mouth! Eat! Eat it! Eat... Enough. Enough. Old woman. Stop torturing this little girl. Let me convince her. How can you do that? What exactly is that bastard, Huang He, going to do? Now that Gao Chong has settled his debt, he can go after Shen Shen and Zhao Jing directly. What's the point of caging this girl? This girl knows nothing. We shall kill or release her.
Why bother to cage her? Release her is not an option. We went through a lot to abduct her. There is no way to back now. Girl, tell me everything you know. Your father is no longer here. Why are you being so stubborn? You're the only one suffering here. Both of us will never torture you. Other people might! Ah Xu, are you hot? Look, you're sweating. Come. I'll fan you. I wasn't. But once you speak, I'm getting annoyed. Uncle Wen, my master is doing well. You shall take care of me instead. You're being lazy again. Practice for an hour more. Master, I've practiced the Swift Moving Steps for a few thousand times. I'm already familiar with it and handle it well. Can I stop practicing now? How dare you talk back? Two more hours! Ah Xu, you're nice and gentle normally. Why are you so strict with your disciple? Things might go wrong if you rush it. You have to teach with patience. How? Fine. I was too busybody. You are teaching your disciple according to his aptitude. A strict mentor makes a good disciple.
I won't take anyone's advice. Don't you know "a clumsy bird shall fly first"? I can protect you now. But can I protect you forever? Master, I didn't say that I wouldn't fly. But... I can't now even if I want to. He has to practice his martial arts he can't if he has a heat stroke. Cheng Ling really can't take it anymore. Why don't you allow him to rest for a while in the carriage? Go on with your training! Is he your disciple or mine? Are you teaching him instead? OK, I'll shut up. You're right. (What's wrong with Lao Wen these days?) (He acts like a wife who feels wronged.) (What is he planning?) Greetings, master. Scorpion King. Brother Changing. Brother Lovelace. This must be Brother Happy. Welcome! Brother Zhao. Scorpion King. Brother Zhao, your strategy worked so well this time. I truly respect you. You're overpraising me. The Heroes Conference at Mount Jun was held smoothly thanks to Brother Changing and every ghost brother's cooperation. Greetings, Zhao... Chief Zhao. Greetings, Scorpion King. No wonder you are known as the Happy Ghost. You really make people happy. Lovelace. Chief Zhao, you've finally succeeded.
Who else besides you can be the supreme leader of the martial arts world? We are all brothers. Please save the courtesy. We still have a long way to go. Now, we have no clue of the whereabouts of the Glazed Armor. I will need lots of support from you in the future. Brother Zhao. You mean the pieces of Glazed Armor that were destroyed by Gao Chong at the Heroes Conference were fake? I think my brothers shouldn't waste their effort on nothing. I know Gao Chong well. He did that just to confuse others. He planned to end the fight over the Glazed Armor by committing suicide. He must have kept the real Glazed Armor in a safe place. So, you have to work hard to search for it. and regarding the search for Hanged Ghost... you should put in more effort. But as for the Five Lakes Alliance... Don't worry. Leave it to me. You don't have to worry about it. Since you mentioned this, I'm still confused about one thing. Wen Ke Xing said that his Glazed Armor was snatched by Hanged Ghost. The Five Lake Alliance has five pieces of Glazed Armor, right?
How many pieces do you have? Brother Changing. I'll let you know what you're supposed to know. Why should you care about those that you're not supposed to know? Changing, look at what you have done. Working with the righteous clans, we have to work hard, yet we get nothing. What's good about that? Moreover, I think Zhao Jing and Scorpion King... They are both mad. Do you think I don't know that? How could they come up with this plan if they're not mad? Without such a plan, how can my dream come true? What are you up to? He wants to become the chief of the Ghost Valley. What's so nice about becoming the chief? Three thousand evil ghosts look to you every day with the hope of replacing you. Who can have an eye on his back forever? Everyone will die. You're right. What's the point of becoming the chief? Everything is still the same. We can never see the sun. Even a fierce king of the valley like Wen Ke Xing can't escape his fate.
Then, what's your plan? Didn't you ever think of returning to the human world? We'll ride on the fastest horses; drink the strongest wine; play with the prettiest ladies... That's good! and kill the cruelest enemies. Yes! I want that so bad! Changing. No one will recognize you if you disguise yourself. You're the top of the Ten Devils of the Ghost Valley. But my face... When I get too excited, I can't speak. Who can't recognize me by that? What if I tell you there's a holy item of the Healer Valley hidden in the armory, which can revive a dead person, cure any severe injuries and treat any illness in this world? What do you think? Lao Wen, accompany me to get some food. You take a rest first. I'll go instead. Good disciple, go and get some food with me. Uncle Wen. Even my little finger can't move. Cheng Ling can't go. He has to practice his martial arts.
Master. I taught you the Emerging Phoenix yesterday. Practice it 500 times before your dinner. Oh, right! Bring two fishes back. I want to drink fish soup tonight. I want to drink old monster soup! Why don't you boil yourself? Brat! How dare you be so arrogant? Ah Xu, give it a taste. Young man. Don't you know about respecting the elderly? It's fine. I'll get another bowl for you. Ah Xu. Thank you, Lao Wen. Cheng Ling. Bring this soup to Young Leader Long. Feed him if he wants to have it. Ah Xu. Why do you call that brat "young leader"? Qin Huai Zhang and Long Que were Damon and Pythias. Long Que met the little brat, Rong Xuan, through Qin Huai Zhang. Little brat? What's your relationship with Rong Xuan? How do you know Rong Xuan's relationship with these people? Do you want to know? Why do you act like an old lady? So busybody. Senior. Our journey to Shu this time is far and tough. How do you know the answer is in Longyuan Cabinet? Except for the one who started the whole thing, the only insider who is still alive now is Long Que. We can only meet him if we want to find out. Senior. Master. Who exactly is Long Que? The Longyuan Cabinet's former leader Long Que is a sworn friend of your grandmaster. The superficial knowledge of the mechanics
passed down in the Four Seasons Manor is all from the Longyuan Cabinet. When I first joined the clan, Old Leader Long visited us frequently. But I don't know why... he disappeared suddenly. There was a misunderstanding between my master and him, so he didn't look for him. Later, my master received a distress letter from a Mechanical Sparrow. Only then did he know something went wrong. He came to Shu several times. Master. Did the grandmaster find him? No. No one knows the actual position of the Longyuan Cabinet. People said that it was a portable fortress in the mountains. Back then, the Window of Heaven was not as influential. I dispatched some people to search for it a few times. Every time, they would come back and tell me that the address of the place was correct but nothing was found there. They were just useless. Even their leader was useless, they would only be worse. Useless disciple and your useless friend. But your soup is acceptable. How did you survive all these years without being strangled to death? I'm good at martial arts. Senior Ye, this soup might be poisoned. Aren't you drinking? [Five Lakes World Alliance]
Have a seat, brothers. You're welcome. Where are the leaders of Jujing Gang and Purple Wave Cove? These bastards! They are turning against us. They even swore to leave the alliance and never come back! Such a serious matter has happened to the Five Lakes Alliance. It's unavoidable that they lose trust in us. It's normal. Chevalier Zhao, you're too generous. But what these bastards did... Now, they are treating the oath that we swore when we entered this alliance as sugarcane! They are spitting it out after they tasted its sweetness. How can they take the benefits and leave when trouble comes? In the 100-year history of the Five Lakes Alliance, there wasn't a time when a chief collaborated with an evil clan and killed his brother. Seriously... We still can't decide whether the former chief has collaborated with the Ghost Valley. The accusation of murder a brother is a big deal. We can't stop outsiders from gossiping. But how can we, the brothers, be disturbed by such things? Chevalier Zhao. It's only been a few days, but those who fought over Gao Chong's body all died horribly. Isn't this enough to explain that the Ghost Valley is avenging Gao Chong? Am I right? The Elder of Kongtong was killed by Happy Ghost.
Eagle Claw Clan's Sun Zhong died in the middle of the street. Sixteen disciples of the Iron Palm Gangs died in an inn. A letter was engraved on each of their chests. Together, they are "You kill a man of mine, I'll exterminate your clan. We, the ghosts of Mount Qingya, seek revenge for the smallest grievance." Now, everyone in the martial arts world is anxious. There are many complaints about the Five Lakes Alliance too. If we can't survive this... the departure of Jujing and Golden Tiger is just the start. Although I'm not talented, [Profound Expectations] I truly know that the more difficult it is, the more united we have to be. The Five Lakes Alliance didn't rise to the top in just one day. We must forge ahead to show the world our resolution. We are faced with such a crisis. It's indeed unfortunate. But [Great Ambitions] as long as you leaders trust me, I'll try my best to protect the reputation of the Five Lakes Alliance. I'll let the Five Lakes Alliance grow for another one hundred years! You're right! You disrespectful old man. You ill-mannered kid. Stop taking advantage of me.
Who's your kid? How old can you be? How dare you act like some talented senior? I'm not your senior. I'm your forefather. You old monster! [Jujing Gang] I'm so pissed! Leader, you should reconsider quitting from the Five Lakes Alliance. Reconsider? Zhao Jing is unambitious and weak. He's no good leader. If he's the chief, the Five Lakes Alliance will be doomed sooner or later! What's wrong? We can draw a dragon or a tiger but not its bones. We can recognize a man by his appearance but not his heart. Leader Wang. We have similar thoughts and a strong friendship. But you insult me behind my back. As your brother, I'm so hurt. Yes! Wang Mo Xuan, are you looking down on us now? Why don't you kneel down and apologize to Chief? Chief is generous. He might forgive you for being muddleheaded once. The Four Assassins? The Scorpion? Chief Zhao. So the rumors are real. You're indeed doing dirty deeds with the Scorpion. Shut up! Brother Wang, you've misunderstood. The Scorpion now belongs to the Five Lakes Alliance. From now onwards, we are brothers.
We shall get along in harmony. How can Jujing Gang collaborate with the Scorpion? Guards! Escort the guests out! Someone! You... What did you do to my brothers? Brother Wang, don't panic. There are rumors in the martial arts world saying that the Jujing Gang is trying to split the Five Lakes Alliance. I don't think that's your intention. Your subordinates must be the ones who spread the rumors. Am I right? Right my ass! We, the Jujing Gang, are cutting the ties with the Five Lakes Alliance! Kill me if you dare! Leader! Leader! Scorpion! Why did you kill him? Father, didn't you hear him? He said we could kill him if we dare to. I think I do. Nonsense! I thought you had reformed yourself. How can you kill a man like that? Leave! Yes. Senior Ye. Do you want some nuts? They are from the Wolong's. They are really nice and crispy. You! Little brat! Are you being lazy again? No. I've trained for half of the day. Uncle Wen asked me to have more nuts as a supplement that can enhance my martial arts skills.
So many excuses. You can't take the whole bag away even if they are indeed tasty. Leave me some. Stop being lazy. Continue with your practice. [Wangchen Inn] Come. Master, I didn't make a mistake. You've practiced for a few thousand times. You should not make a mistake! This skill is called the Swift Moving Steps, not Dance Like A Bear! Your steps were worse than a spider's. Again! Straighten your back! Ah Xu. Don't punish your disciple with my Wolong nuts. You're wasting a heavenly item. I spent a long time queuing for it. Master, it's too heavy. I really can't straighten my back. Can you decrease the weight? Do you believe I'd remove your legs instead? Ah Xu. After seeing how you teach your disciple, I finally realize how nice my master was. Who's your master? My biological father. How could a father teach his biological son? No wonder you're bad at martial arts. This is how a teacher should teach a disciple. Which legendary master is your disciple? I didn't expect that you're not only bad at martial arts, you can't drink either. Bottoms up! Bottoms up! Gather your genuine qi at your elixir field to acquire strength. Little idiot, it's easier to spread than gather your qi now. Spread your genuine qi to your limbs and bones. Move your body with the genuine qi. You'll gain strength eventually.
Who asked you to listen to him? Little idiot! Breath continuously. Gather your qi at your Conception and Governor vessels, like a hundred rivers vanishing into the sea. Listen to me! Let your inner qi be tangible, non-stop and freely, moving flexibly like a snake. Let him go! Ah Xu, stop it! Cheng Ling is... You two did a good job. Both of you finally torture your disciple to death. Are you satisfied now? It's fine. This is strange. This kid is born with much wider meridians than a normal person. Is he a genius? You're right. I've realized it long ago. Cheng Ling's meridians are wide and smooth, like a wide river. Compared to a narrow creek, we need more time to fill it up. His skills were not improving not because he wasn't trying hard. Master, what's happening to me? There's actually such a strange guy in this world. He's clumsy but he has marvelous sinews and bones. Is God treating you well or not? Even if he has an excellent base, he's a disciple of our Ah Xu. Don't you have bad intentions after realizing he's promising. I've seen better. Are you still drinking or not? Certainly. I'm not afraid of you. Come on! Ah Xu, you're my witness. Today, I'll keep drinking with him until this old monster calls me his father!
Little brat, stop bluffing. Come! Come! Cheng Ling, are you alright? If you really can't stand it, train for one more hour is enough. He has strangely good sinews and bones. You can push him hard. He won't die soon. Why are you so talkative? Drink more! Come! Cheers! How did, Yu Qiu Feng, that idiot start working with Tragicomic Ghost? Wu Yang, how old is the girl who helped him with the abduction looks like? Father, I'm sorry. I can't tell. But, judging from her appearance and figure, she's at most slightly more than 20. But her skills were fierce. They don't seem to be done by a young girl. I didn't go in person and carry out your command. Please punish me, father. I only asked you to order Scorpion to abduct Tragicomic Ghost, not to stop those people from abducting her. Even those skillful assassins died. You're still young. How can you defeat the leader of the Mount Hua Sect? I wouldn't blame you. Throughout these years, you've earned the trust of the Leader of the Yueyang Sect and helped me with many things. Huai Ren and you are both good kids. But... Huai Ren couldn't make it to today. Father! Father, it's too rushed. I can only set it up as how it was at the Sanbai Manor.
But... I still don't know which screen to choose. Father, do you want one with clouds and mountains, or one with birds? Father, who is this? You may leave first. Yes. Scorpion, you may make your own decisions on such a small matter. You may stay there once you set it up. I'll stay here. That won't do. Look! How shabby this place is! How can you stay here? I'm a man with great ambitions and expectations. All these years, I pretended to go after wealth and indulge myself in enjoyment. My goal was to confuse those short-sighted people. But now, [Yixiang Hall] I've already become a strong power in the martial arts world. I don't have to pretend anymore. Yes. Father, you're right. But I've set everything up. Father. I picked everything by myself. Xie Er. A man shouldn't be distracted by other things. What I dislike the most are your impetuosity and distracting thoughts. You have to focus. You must put all your effort into your main task.
Complete what I've ordered you to do first. Yes. Me first! Drink more! Cheers! Cheers! Bottoms up! Why should I? Your mouth is big. I... How is my mouth big? Ah Xu! Ah Xu! Ah Xu! This... This old monster said that I have a big mouth. My mouth is just in the right size. Ah Xu! I found it! You have some gray hairs. How dare you say I'm like an old lady? It's you! What's wrong with having a few gray hairs? You're being too dramatic. You're right. I don't even know how long have you, the old monster, live for. What's wrong with having a few gray hairs? But Ye. How old exactly are you? I can't remember. Anyway, I could have died long ago. Ah Xu! Ah Xu! I... I... Go to sleep. It's fine. I'm not drunk. I don't want to repeat myself. Brat. You're still young. Why don't you want to live? Who told you that? Your nails didn't give you hard time recently, right? You're quite happy, huh? It's a countdown. Your organs are weakening. Your vitality can't stop your internal injuries from worsening. So, it won't make you suffer. I just don't understand.
Many people who deserve to die in this world are doing everything possible to survive. Why don't you want to live? I have only two choices in my life. Live peacefully or die peacefully. No one can force me to take a third path. Little Qin, your disciple is so silly. Are all the young men now so silly? Chang Qing, were we like this when we were young? I can't remember. I've lived for too long. I can't remember. [Wangchen Inn] Ah Xu. Come. Let's drink. What are you looking at? Does it hurt? Why don't you give it a try? Look. It's been so many years, I've only met you, a friend with similar ideas. Can you not die? I'll try my best. Turn around. Look at me. Say it again. I don't want to look at you. I can't stand your pretentious actions, with a mask and not being truthful at all. I... I'm just... I'm just scared... You're scared of my illness and that I'll die anytime soon, so you acted along with me and protected me purposely. Lao Wen. Are you pitying me or humiliating me?
Don't leave! I'm not leaving. When you're sober, I'll punch you in the face. You know that I'm dying soon, but you still brush me off with your fake actions. They are not fake. They are real. You really deserve to be beaten up. Hurry up and sleep! I won't die too soon. Life is short. You shall cherish it more. Little brat. I've said it. I bet that I'm not wrong. I bet that you'll open up to me one day. If I don't see my victory, even God can't bring me away. Open up? Human hearts are evil. What's so good about looking into mine? I can only help you after I see it. Just sleep. After looking into it, you won't see me as your friend. ♪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?
