♪I've forgotten those who are gone♪ [Word of Honor] [Episode 3] Master Wen. I've been helping you kill and bury bodies all night, why are you still calling me Master Wen? Aren't you being a bit too formal? You shouldn't drink cold liquor with that injury. Xiang. Warm it up. I'm fine with waiting on you, but now I have to wait on these two idiots, too? Sister Xiang, let me do it. Take it. Master Wen. How strange. It has a skin and flesh feel to it, but why does it feel like you grew it yourself? I did try to grow it myself. Who is this guy? Why could he recognize the Swift Moving Steps and see through my disguise, too? I've never made a mistake in my judgment of people. Your figure speaks of honesty and uprightness, you must be extraordinary. How come...? Master! Last time you pointed at the back of a village girl and praised her for having fair shoulder blades, saying she must be a beauty. But when she turned around, she couldn't look more homely.
You don't understand. That girl is inherently beautiful. But poor environment gave her a cheesy appearance. It wasn't my mistake. As for Brother Zhou... Uncle Zhou. I can't see anything obvious yet, but I'm sure you've changed your appearance. Is it pretty? It's perfect. Master Zhang, the masks of those people who were chasing you had symbols of Mount Qingya's Ghost Valley. This group of evil has disappeared for many years. How did the Mirror Lake Sect get into trouble with them? I don't know. You don't know? Brother Zhou, you must how strong the Ghost Valley is, right? You got involved in such a major issue for no reason, don't you want to know what's behind all of it? I don't know. And I'm not interested. But I can get a good picture just by guessing. Uncle Zhou. Matters of the martial arts world are all about three things: greed, hatred and ignorance. Ghost Valley disappeared for many years, so there's no hatred to speak of. Qiu Yue Jian has always preserved moral integrity and been at peace with all. There's no ignorance to speak of, either. So the only thing left is greed. The Ghosts on Mount Qingya must have destroyed the Mirror Lake Sect
out of the greed for something. I wonder if Brother Zhou has heard of this nursery rhyme. ♪The water from the Five Lakes gathers around the World♪ ♪Who else deserves the supremacy in the martial arts world?♪ That's right. This nursery rhyme has spread throughout Jiangnan these past few months. Everyone knows this is the Five Lakes Alliance's campaign to compete for leadership over the martial arts world. But a few days ago, a strange second half of the rhyme spread from Yue. Master! What is it? ♪The Iridescent Clouds are scattered and the Glaze is shattered♪ ♪Who will cry with the Ghosts on Mount Qingya?♪ What's so sad about the Ghosts on Mount Qingya? Each one of them is full of evil and ended up in Ghost Valley for they had nowhere to escape. You're right. But the words "the Ghosts on Mount Qingya" don't stand for a group of ghosts, but for Rong Xuan, the great demon who was executed at Mount Qingya twenty years ago. It's said that this demon with the surname Rong left behind a martial arts treasure called World's Armory. It contains long-lost supreme techniques
of various martial arts sects. It can make any ordinary man invincible. The key to this armory is called the Glazed Armor. A treasure that makes people invincible? You can only trick an ignorant rustic into believing this kind of foolish talk. Master Wen, do you believe it? Why? Don't you believe it? Treasures, divine weapons, secret martial arts scrolls, panaceas. Every few years, something of the kind gets made up and causes the people of the martial arts world to scramble for it, leading to countless deaths. Only then will everyone be happy. Ridiculous. How is it ridiculous? Isn't it? All these treasures have a name. They're called the Way of Reaping without Sowing". Simply put, it's just greed. I'm surprised that you are of the same opinion as me. Though peace reigns over the land, ignorant people create trouble for themselves. I finally figured out what you just said! That's right, in fact, it's because the people fighting over it know that their skills of martial arts are poor,
so they try to reap without sowing! They already know they are weak, but they still fight with others over it, do they have a death wish? Master. Looks like there are loads of people more stupid than me! Miss Gu is quite smart. What do you think, Master Zhang? We should take a nap. It's almost dawn. Indeed, it's almost dawn. [Mirror Lake Manor] [Leader of Mount Dagu Sect, Five Lakes Alliance, Shen Shen] Cover the bodies. Don't expose them to the sun. Put it here. Okay. Kuan! Master Shen. Greetings, Leader of Mount Dagu Sect. What happened? Master Shen... Where is Master Zhang? Master Shen! When we arrived last night, everyone of the Mirror Lake Sect has already been killed. These are the remains of Master Zhang and our two juniors. Fourth Brother... Master Shen! Step aside. -Master Shen! -Step aside! Master Shen! You'd better not look. Master Zhang and the two juniors were tortured before they died.
Their remains are in a poor state. Master Shen! Chevalier Shen! Chevalier Shen! Master Shen, you... It's all my fault! I failed to save them in time! As the first disciple of Yueyang Sect, I am to blame! Please punish me, Master! Weren't you ordered here to hand over the invitation? Why weren't you here in time to rescue them, either? When we saw the fire while in Yue last night, we rushed to the lake immediately, but someone destroyed all the boats early in that morning! What a cruel scheme! If I find them, I will pay them back hundredfold! In all my years, I've never heard anyone boast so outrageously, talking so big and irresponsibly. Tao Hong, Lv Liu, what do you mean? [Grandma Tao Hon, Grandpa Lv Liu] Chevalier Shen. When you became sworn brothers, didn't you swear to die at the same time? Now that your sworn brother died such a cruel death, why don't you end your life and follow him? A few tears are all you've got?
Nonsense! Old Woman, you don't understand. The Five Lakes Alliance's understanding of honor has always stood out among others. When they were alive, they didn’t meet together for decades. Once they died, he came as soon as possible, crying like it's his mother who died. This kind of deep friendship is quite special! You insult the friendship between us five brothers. Are you deliberately trying to provoke me? Brothers? [For Auld Lang Syne] Chevalier Shen. Aren't you blowing your own trumpet too much? Who knows if Zhang Yu Sen even recognizes you as his brother? Anyone with a discerning eye can see whether you, Leader Shen, are a brother or a flunkey! You've gone too far! Leader Shen! Elder Huang! [Elder of Beggar Gangs, Huang He] Leader Shen. I asked Tao Hong and Lv Liu here to help us. Please hold back for my sake. We should stick together when faced with our enemies.
Let us forget about our past grievances for now. For now. Leader Shen. Is it more important to avenge Mirror Lake Sect or to hold this momentary argument? But Elder Huang, who... who did this actually? Follow me. [Luohan Temple] Have you stared enough? I'm just wondering what kind of countenance lies beneath your disguise. It's dawn. Thank you. Fate let us meet. And fate will reunite us. Brother Zhou. Actually, why wait for another day to reunite? You want to send this child to Tai Lake. It's a long journey. I happen to have a boat. I'd also like to appreciate the scenery of Tai Lake. We might as well take my boat together. Wouldn't that be great? I've always hated to see the fated people brave the wind and dew on their journeys. Interesting. I'm looking forward to finding out who you are. Fated people? Master, that Tuberculosis breathes out more air than he takes in, he may keel over at any moment!
Why would you take him with you? Do you find your life too comfortable? You haven't met enough people yet. That person's voice sounds fabulous, and his appearance is comely. Especially those shoulder blades. They are one-of-a-kind. You made him sounds like Apollo. He's just a man, isn't he? Of course. Do you think I don't know he is a man? What I mean is... this person's appearance and phrenology are completely inconsistent. Yet I can't see any trace of disguise. How skillful must he be for this little trick? Even I can't see any flaws. And that flexible sword of his... Master. Why were those people so mysterious last night? That leader even called himself a Hanged Ghost. Did they think we are stupid? Master, where are you going? Fate... will reunite us. [Luohan Temple] [Smile to difficulties of life] Master Shen, the only remains we haven't found is Cheng Ling's. And the others? I found the remains in this yard. Chevalier Shen, be careful. What an insidious trap! Master, these materials are extremely sharp.
You can hardly see them with the naked eye. We only cleaned them roughly, they are not cleaned up yet. This yellow paper... Ghost Valley? Yes. All of us old people know, Ghost Valley always creates a scene before it carries out its evil deeds. I was worried that someone would do evil under the guise of Ghost Valley. That was why I asked my two old friends, Tao Hong and Lv Liu, to come here. There is no one left in this world... Yes. There is no one in this world who understands these damn things better than us. These things caused the two of us to become the way we are today! These are Soul Winding Threads of the Hanged Ghost. The Ten Devils of Ghost Valley. It's high time to get rid of this evil! I'm going to destroy the Ghost Valley! Leader Shen, don't you overestimate yourself! It's Ghost Valley that will destroy your Five Lakes Alliance. Stop telling tall stories! Grandma Tao Hon! You repeatedly provoke me! Do you think I wouldn't dare to kill you? ♪The water from the Five Lakes gathers around the World♪ ♪Who else deserves the supremacy in the martial arts world?♪ ♪The Iridescent Clouds are scattered and the Glaze is shattered♪
♪Who will cry with the Ghosts on Mount Qingya?♪ What nonsense is that? Who says this is nonsense, Leader Shen? If you haven't done evil, you needn't to fear that Erynnyes would knock on your door. The Ghost Valley has knocked on the door of Mirror Lake Sect. Who can be sure that they won't knock on your door tonight? Hurry up. Send your master a message immediately. Be sure to tell him the second half of the nursery rhyme. I'm giving you the Alliance's Leadership Token. With this token, it's as if the Leader is present. Gather your men and do whatever it takes to find out Cheng Ling's whereabouts. Yes. Chevalier Shen. If the child of your alliance's Zhang Family survived, I will do my part and take on the great responsibility to assist your alliance in finding the orphan. You can count on me. Thank you, Elder Huang. Don't mention it. It is all about the duty of righteous people. Everyone of the Five Lakes Alliance is indebted to you. You are very welcome. I'm tired. Kid. Let's find a shady place
up ahead and take a rest. Master. Brother Zhou! What a pleasant surprise to meet you again. Let's drink some tea to cool down on this hot day. That Wen Ke Xing just wouldn't leave us. He must be after the Glazed Armor too. Why are you leaving? There is a lake. Drink some water and quench your thirst. If the Canglang River is clean, I can wash my ribbon in it. If the Canglang River is dirty, I can wash my foot in it.* (* Lit.: Lines from a classical Chinese Poem) Brother Zhou. We meet everywhere. Did this person put some tracking item on us? Is there really a tracking technique I do not know about? Let's go. Where are you going, Brother Zhou? Aren't you going to rest a bit longer? Seeing Shen frightened out of his wits was truly satisfying. Five Lakes Alliance has been unbridled for so many years. Finally someone can put them in their place. Grandma Tao Hon, you should restrain yourself. If the Ghost Valley appears, it’s not just the Five Lakes Alliance that will suffer. I don't care. I'm almost dead anyway. As long as I can watch the fall of the Five Lakes Alliance, I can die in peace.
Grandpa Lv Liu, what do you think? So many people were driven to death for that damned Glazed Armor back then. In the end, the Five Lakes Alliance got all the benefits. Now, the Danyang Sect's bloodline was cut first, then the Mirror Lake Sect was destroyed. I feel like the time has come for Five Lakes Alliance's retribution. Lu Tai Chong left behind two young disciples. They ran over to Ao Lai Zi's Mount Tai Sect. He must have obtained Lu Tai Chong's Glazed Armor. We have to find Ao Lai Zi quickly. We can't let another piece of the Glazed Armor fall into the hands of the Ghost Valley. [Tianya Inn] A single room would be enough, too. Please, can't you work something out? If we had a room, we'd let you stay here. A gentleman reserved the entire place. Please forgive me. Why don't you go and look elsewhere? Are there other inns elsewhere? I'm sorry. That would be a no. Where do you want us to go then? It's none of my business where you go once you leave our inn. Hey! What about your woodshed? That will do. We are tired through our journey.
We'd like to ask you for a place to stay overnight. Isn't this Brother Zhou? What woodshed? How can you let Brother Zhou sleep in a woodshed? Sir, have my First-class Room cleaned up for this beautiful... this gallant man. Of course. Lad, go and clean it up! Alright! Brother Zhou, I gave you my own room. I even prepared two new outfits for you. Are you just going to take over my room so brusquely? You should at least invite me inside for a while. Seems to me that there are many empty rooms left. Just find another room to relax in. But there's only one First-class Room. Brother Zhou. Brother Zhou! Uncle Zhou, what are you doing? We must always be on guard. Master Wen doesn't look like a bad person. You think everyone is a good person. You stayed up all night. Come here and take a nap. Uncle Zhou, you stayed up all night too. I'll just take a nap in the chair. You should use the bed. Just do what I say. Yes. You brat. You don't even take off your clothes when you sleep? It's inconvenient for you when I'm here, right? Alright. Oh right, how is your injury? You don't have to say it if you don't want to. This is the hemostatic.
Apply it yourself. Uncle Zhou. Thank you. Brother Zhou, we have a deep bond through fate. Could it be the doomed fate of Karma? More like a wretched soul that keeps haunting around. I wonder why you keep following me all this time. Why don't you just tell me? What I want is simple. Show me your true face and I'll tell you. Why not let me see your true face first? Your true face must be very handsome. As for my true face... It may not necessarily be that appealing. Perhaps it's covered in scars. Perhaps it's a terrifying appearance. I don't care either way. However, I will give you a piece of advice. Don't be so interested in things that don't concern you. Then tell me, Brother Zhou, what is your relationship with that Master Zhang upstairs? Do you really want to get sucked into this trouble without knowing what it is? I do my best to accomplish what was entrusted to me. I only need to bring Master Zhang to Zhao Jing safely.
Anything else has nothing to do with me. Master! Why didn't you invite me to drink with you? Xiang, tell me, what is the second cutest person in the world like? Someone who treats me to dinner. It's a person who is tough on the surface but soft at heart. And who is the cutest person in the world? A person with a slim waist, long legs, who is tough on the surface but soft at heart. This child is the descendant of an eminent family. We shall spare no efforts to find the child! Yes! We will follow Law Elder's orders. What should we do if we find his whereabouts? Bring the child directly to me, no matter what it costs. Don't let anyone know that the child is brought to us. Yes! Uncle Zhou. Young Master Zhang, you finally woke up. We've been waiting for you. Your Uncle Zhou wouldn't start eating without you. So we couldn't start either. Wash your hands and eat. I'm hungry! Why wash your hands? It's not like you're going to eat with your bare hands! Girl, since we are traveling the martial arts world, do behave yourself.
Look at how the other girls conduct themselves. [Tianya Inn] Please have mercy on us. Is it him? Have mercy on us, sir! Young Master Zhang, why don't you start eating? Is the food not to your taste? No, that's not it. Thank you for the hospitality, Master Wen. So you know you should say thank-you. Why aren't you eating? Don't you know that having someone like you at the table is really affecting our appetite? But... I really don't have an appetite. I really dislike spoiled people like you who never experienced any hardships! You're neither versed in literacy nor in martial arts. When something happens, your world falls apart! If you don’t eat, you’ll be starved to death! Do you think that God could be touched by you so that he will punish your enemies for you? Xiang, don't bully him. Just eat. Master, am I wrong? Look at that silly boy, his head is only there for decoration! Listen, if you don't eat to gain strength and skills, are you really just counting on us outsiders to avenge you? Yes. At home you rely on your parents, outside you rely on friends. But that's just wishful thinking.
Even this Tuber... Master Zhou won't let his generosity get taken advantage of this much. Take your time to eat, no one is trying to steal it from you. Be careful not to choke, you idiot. Why did you start crying? Xiang! It's as if bullied you. [Chongwu Palace] [Five Lakes World Alliance] Everybody. [Leaders of Haisha Gangs & Water Transport Gangs] During my time as the leader [Leaders of Gangs] of the world's highest alliance, [Disciples of Yueyang Sect, Zhu Yao Zhi, Gao Shan] Ghost Valley attacked the Five Lakes Alliance's [Leader of Five Lakes Alliance, Gao Chong] Mirror Lake Sect in cruel ways. They annihilated my Fourth Brother, Zhang Yu Sen's whole family. The Five Lakes Alliance has experienced unprecedented shame and humiliation! This debt of blood must be paid back with blood! Leader is right! This debt of blood must be paid back in blood! Everybody! Since the Battle of Mount Qingya, the martial arts world and the Ghost Valley have been in peace for more than twenty years. It's because the righteous people back then made an agreement with the masters who developed Ghost Valley. As long as the Ghost Valley does not harm the people of the martial arts world,
the righteous people will not step inside Ghost Valley! But now it’s the Ghost Valley who did harm to our world first! Therefore, I will hold a Heroes Conference on July 15th! It's time for us to attack Mount Qingya together and eradicate this cancerous evil! A debt of blood must be paid back with blood! Eradicate the cancerous evil! A debt of blood must be paid back with blood! Eradicate the cancerous evil! [Leader of Mount Tai Sect, Ao Lai Zi] Master, how is it? Fortunately, we didn't find anyone suspicious. How is Qing Hua? He only caught a cold. [Disciple of Mount Tai Sect, Qing Bai] He has a little fever from time to time. Master, can we set a fire? Wait a bit longer. It will be alright once we get to Mount Wudang. Let me keep watch. You are tired from the journey, please rest. I'm fine. Because of the fire in Mirror Lake Manor, Shen Shen let us get away. But if he catches up with us again, you kid won't be able to deal with him. We'll just have a battle to the death. Master. You're too reckless! Master Ao Lai Zi. How about... you... you just hand us over? After all, Master Shen is my uncle's sworn brother.
We are Danyang Sect's last two descendants. I think Five Lakes Alliance won't do anything to us. Silly child. Shen Shen is chasing after you relentlessly to steal the Glazed Armor that your master left. But don't worry. Since I promised to fulfill your master's last wish, I will do anything in my power to prevent the Glazed Armor from falling into the hands of the Five Lakes Alliance. Help! Help! Help! Help! Dad! Dad! Uncle Zhou? It's fine now. Get some sleep. [Bright and Blessed] Brother Zhou, are you looking for these two people? I've handled everything for you. Go back to sleep. It's the Ghost Valley again. They followed me quite closely. It's difficult to tell a ghost from a human. Someone wearing a ghost mask is not necessarily a ghost. Someone looks like human may not necessarily be a human.
Who knows? You're a true connoisseur. This is the old yellow seal liquor of 30 years. Can I call you Xu? You are quite skilled in judging wine, Xu. It's on par with my ability to judge people. How about a sip of it? With that judgment of yours? Just forget it. My judgment of people is perfect. I'm sure that a really big surprise lies underneath your outermost skin. You might as well rip it off and take a look. I'm in no hurry.
