[Word of Honor] [Episode 26] Why are you abusing Zhen Yi Guo? Is this your dog? My senior left it to me. Yi Guo. What a good name! Let me cook it and see if it can fill a pot. Give it to me. No! No? We'll take it! Nowhere to run now? Stay back! Give it to me. Hold him. Good dog, run! Run back home and find your mommy. Zhen Yi Guo? Let go of me! Go home. Thanks. Little boy, is Zhen your family name? No. You are mistaken. Why did Ah Xu's Drunk-Like-a-Dream lead me to such a weird dream? Little brat. Uncle Wen, you woke up so early. What's the time now? I've practiced Eight Trigram Palm more than fifty times. It's about seven in the morning. Why did you wake up so early? I woke up at the first crowing and failed to get back to sleep. So I decided to practice martial arts. Why are you trying so hard? I keep having dreams and can't sleep well. Thinking of the evils deeds the Ghost Valley has committed, and the people who lost their families like me, I just can't eat and sleep well. I do hope that in one night,
I can have good skills like you and my Master, so I can kill those bastards. If the Ghost Valley doesn't exist in this world, there won't be so many miserable happenings. More haste, less speed. No matter how hard you try, martial art skills can't be acquired overnight. Your master has some incenses that can help you sleep. I'll get some for you tonight. You are still growing now. Sleeping is necessary for you. You exert your strength wrongly so your arms are not powerful. Eight Trigram Palm emphasizes the central waist and qi. This is also the key to most fighting skills. Little brat, free your shoulders, lower your elbows, and strengthen your belly. Someone said he was an outsider and refused to teach him, didn't he? None of your business. Master, I'll answer the door. Who are you? I am from the Ping'an Silver Manor. Mr. Ye ordered me to deliver a letter to the Four Season Manor. Scorpion King, on that bullshit Brochure of Ghosts, there are appearances of many of us, from the chief of the valley to the Top Ten Devils. Even our skills, schools, origins, and all the things we've done are on it. It's just like ripping our pants off and showing them to everyone. If it spreads over the martial arts world, we could hardly do anything. What... what Brochure of Ghosts? The Five Lake Alliance is distributing brochures of ghosts to each sect.
What is this about? If this is the case, how could we work for Chief Zhao out there? Oh, I remember. There is indeed such a thing. But what's wrong with this? Before you go out, just find someone who is good at making disguises to change your appearance. Perhaps, you'll look much better. Happy! Besides, as a badass, you want to be as notorious as possible, don't you? Father has helped you with that. Isn't it good? You bastard! The alliance of two powers, if they work well, it sustains. If not, it breaks. If Chief Zhao is trying to use this kind of despicable means to force us to the corner, isn't it too nasty? Today, I have heard something so ridiculous. You evil ghosts call someone else despicable? This is so funny. Fine. If this is the case, we'll just leave now. The martial arts world is large, we'll find another place. How dare you! Why not? I think it makes sense.
If they work well, it sustains. If not, it breaks. If you guys don't want to stay, then, why should I keep you? Let's go! See you. Your Majesty, what are you planning with Chief Zhao again? Mind your words. Yes, Your Majesty. By the way, Your Majesty, Liu Qian Qiao's letter has arrived. It's about how to make the Water of Lethe. Here it is, Your Majesty. [Ping'an Silver Manor] Laddie, the server of your manor told me I have a letter at your place. Just a moment, please. Greetings from Ping An, Chief Zhou. Ping An, why are you here in Kun? Are you running this manor? That's beyond what I'm capable of. Please have a seat, Chief Zhou. I'm just overwatching the 56 sub-manors in the Central Plain for Prince Qi. There are four or five more branches in Najiang overwatched by Ru Yi. The Ping'an Silver Manors are all over the world. I'd never expected that your Master owns them. How could a man like him do business related to money? That's what you don't know. Although our manor deals with financial businesses, it mainly gathers information about the Central Plain for Da Wu. We are using the mechanical birds that you taught him to make.
Thanks to this precious gift, I got the news that Prince Qi was on his way to Kun and have arrived before him. Prince Qi is coming to Kun? Chief Zhou, didn't you send Mr. Ye to visit Da Wu? Prince Qi was told that you had been in poor health. So he decided to come to Kun along with Da Wu at once. Nonsense. How could he come to the Central Plain? It's fine. Chief Zhou, Prince Qi is coming with Da Wu and many bodyguards. Moreover, Kun is a remote place, far beyond the reach of Prince Jin. What does it mean? Ah Xu, are you familiar with the person invited by Ye Bai Yi? More than familiar, it's a lifelong friendship. Chief Zhou, honestly, all these years, you haven't sent any messages to my master. Now you need help. Why did you ask someone else to deliver the message? You may go to Najiang yourself. My master misses a lot all these years. By the way, this is the letter from Mr. Ye. [You jerk] What does Senior Ye mean? Why did he write a letter to scold you? [See you at the winter solstice.] [I want dumplings] [with cabbage and pork stuffing.] This letter... What does it mean? Prince Qi and Da Wu are collecting some precious medicine in Najiang. Mr. Ye can't wait that long, so he decided to come back in advance and sent this letter through the sub-manors in the South.
Thank you, Ping An. Master, who is Da Wu? And who is Prince Qi? Are they the people who Senior Ye have invited to heal you? Nonsense! If I knew that his old friend is Da Wu, I'll spare his trip there. You haven't explained who these two people are. They are my old friends in Jin. They used to work for Prince Jin. But later, they were disappointed in Prince Jin, so they went to Najiang and never come back. Can they heal you? Da Wu is good at medicine and knows much about the secret witchcraft of Nanjiang. Prince Qi usually thinks carefully before he acts. If they decide to come, then there must be a chance. Isn't it good? If you are old friends, why don't we ask for their help earlier? Earlier? I didn't want to live. Master, why did Senior Ye curse in the letter? Little idiot, don't you see? That old monster took such a long journey to Nanjiang to look for doctors. After meeting Da Wu, he found out that the legendary figure who would hardly accept his invitation had owed your master a favor. The great Changming Sword Immortal eventually proved to be an errand boy. A man like him would feel so ashamed.
Getting scolded is a kind of mercy. So what? In the end, Senior Ye is the one who has invited Da Wu. No matter whose favor it is, as long as Master can be healed, it's perfect. Right, Uncle Master? Madam, do you have any other color for this cloth? Here it is. Check this out. It's pretty good. Ah Xu, since we don't go down the mountain very often, I have to go around and see if there's a painter who can do the repair work. Can you take Cheng Ling back first? Sure. Come back as soon as possible. We need you to cook our dinner. What the heck? Am I your servant? Aren't you? Cheng Ling, let's get some rest and we'll leave soon. Chief is coming. Chief. I've found Chief. Chief is here. I've found Chief. I've found Chief. Chief. Chief. Chief, I've finally found you. Do you know how hard our life was for the past few days? It's like rats on the street, chased by everyone. Show me the Brochure of Ghosts. [Brochure of Ghosts] Now, almost everyone in every sect has a copy of this. The whole world is looking for us. They have almost found every one of us
scattering here and there in the martial arts world. I'm so lucky that I've saved these young girls and lads continually. We have been hiding in this wilderness while looking for you, Chief. I'm skinny due to starving. If Miss Xiang didn't take in Yun Zai, who is not in the brochure and can go out to run some errands, I wouldn't be able to see you again. The Top Ten Devils. How many are left? What? Chief, don't you know? I heard that one sect destroyed another, and the other was destroyed by a third one. It's said that the Ghost Valley did it. I, I thought it was done by you with the Top Ten Devils. So it wasn't? Have you heard from the Owner of the List of the Unfaithful? No. Ever since Tragicomic Ghost was abducted before the Heroes Conference started. I haven't heard from her or Beauty Ghost. Oh, right, Chief, I heard that those highborn bastards were trying to re-host that damn Heroes Conference. They really don't know their places, like monkeys trying to claim the throne of the wilderness. Thank god that you show up in time. Let's return to the Ghost Valley now
to prepare the defense and teach them a lesson. Kill them! Kill them! Kill them! Uncle Master. What is it? Uncle Master, you've finally returned. I'm starving. You just wait till I come back? Can't you make some noodles first? No. we can't. How did it go? Did you find a painter? Not at the foot of the mountain. I heard that a painter had just returned from Chang'an to Qingshui Town. I'll visit him with the painting soon. Ah Xu, shall I teach you how to cook? I can't come back in time for the meal that day. No, thanks. A saint once said a nobleman should stay away from the kitchen. (*Lit: It's Mencius's words) Don't worry. We two won't be starved. If there's no other choices, I'll take Cheng Ling to the town for food. Fine. Call me when dinner is ready. Okay, Master Zhou. Take your time. Uncle Master, what is it? Nothing. It's getting dark. "The sunset is so sublime, yet sadly it's in its demise." (*Lit: From Li Shang Yin's "Ascending to Mount Leyo") Cheng Ling, what do you want for dinner tonight? I'll cook for you. Greetings, Scorpion King. Didn't I send someone to tell you the solution to the venom? Why do you come back? I have changed my mind. It's my honor to serve you. I am willing to be your servant,
so long as... so long as you release my master, Tragicomic Ghost and... And Yu Qiu Feng. Scorpion King, I'm begging you. Cut it out. I don't want to hear empty words. No merit, no reward. I can promise you not to kill them, but I can't release them only because of your words. Of course, if you can prove yourself useful, I will not mistreat you. Rise now. Thanks. However, if it wasn't for the recipe that you gave me, I wouldn't find out that the Water of Lethe is made of Nepenthes. Scorpion King, you mean...? Have you heard of something called Drunk-Like-a-Dream? There's a plant in Kun, named Nepenthes. Seven kinds of poisonous insect combined with and the Nepenthes makes the Water of Lethe. It can make you forget the things you're most infatuated with. If you add seven kinds of scented flower to it, Drunk-Like-a-Dream is made. They are like the two sides of a coin, which reinforce but also counteract each other. A large dose of Drunk-Like-a-Dream can counteract the effect of the Water of Lethe and reveal the sealed memories.
Scorpion King, are you going to...? Tragicomic Ghost doesn't have a complete mind now. To avoid using large doses which might damage her brain, I used incense so the medicine would be absorbed gradually and reach the level we need. You are here about time. She's been in the medical room for seven days. I think she'll wake up soon. And I'll know the truth soon. (All those sayings are rumors.) (Father will not deceive me.) (Right.) (After Tragicomic Ghost tells the truth,) (his name will be cleared.) (That's why) (I'm doing this.) Your Gentle Wind Sword Sect is located in a desolate place like this. How smart of you! If I were a thief, I wouldn't bother to come to steal from you. Ah Xiang, cut it out. Who is the one saying that Mount Qing Feng is desolate? Little idiot. Uncle Master! Brat. Uncle Master. Uncle Master, Senior, you are all here. I finally get to meet you! I really miss you. You've finally returned, just in time for the Spring Festival. Is everyone fine? How's my master?
Did everyone miss me? I'm asking you. Be honest. How did you trick this little girl to come with you? I... My name is Gu Xiang. Nice to see you. Ah Xiang. Nice to see you. My name is Mo Wei Xu, Cao Wei Ning's Senior. This is the Elder of our sect, Fan Huai Kong. You may call him Uncle Master Fan as Wei Ning does. Uncle Master Fan. Uncle Master Fan, nice to see you. Senior Mo, nice to see you. Everyone, nice to see you. Nice to see you, too. I'm asking you, where did you find her? Looks foolish. I'm not. If you are not, why would you be tricked here by my foolish nephew? He thinks you are foolish. -Me? -You are the fool! Senior Cao, is this your fiancée that you mentioned in the letter? Great. Good for you! I'm not. Cao Wei Ning, what did you tell them? Nothing. A fierce fiancée. Wei Ning. You will be suffering. Stop it, Uncle Master, don't make fun of her. She's timid. Miss Xiang, don't mind it. We make jokes like this all the time. Girl, I was making jokes. Wei Ning spoke highly of you in his letter. We knew you would be here this morning,
so we have cleaned a small villa for you at the hillside. Uncle Master, can't Ah Xiang live with me up in the mountain? Sorry, miss. Our leader just gave an order to seal off the mountain so we can't receive guests. We've come down for you particularly. Seal off the mountain? Uncle Master, is it because of... Miss, let's check out the villa and see if you like it. Come on. -Go. -Go. -Come. -Go. -Go. -Go. The problem with the Eagle Claw Clan and the Mount Hua Sect is on your shoulder this time, Lao Sha. No problem. If the Water Transport Gang this time... Leaders, let's call it a day. Thank you for your work. -See you. -Bye. How many times have I told you not to come to the front hall? Why? Those flunkies know about me anyway. Would you fear them? Never get yourself more business to attend to. Father, when your status was insecure, you had to cover your connection with the Scorpion. I understand that. But now you are in power, why can't I stand by your side? Things are not settled yet, there still are variables. When will things be settled? Such bullshit may be enough to fool those idiots of the Ghost Valley. But now you evade me with the same cliche.
Are you humiliating me? Scorpion, what's wrong with you today? Did you hear anything? Or did I make a mistake? Scorpion, I know. I had you support me in the dark before because of the hostile situation. I have wronged you. But I didn't expect you are so capable that you manage to make the Scorpion an assassin organization as influential as the Window of Heaven. I'm so glad. That's why I feel that I'm in your debt. I've worked hard cautiously and conscientiously for our cause. I have no children and you are my closest kin. Who else can I entrust my achievements to except you? In the future, you can be wayward or lose your temper once a while. I can take it. But please don't hurt my heart with those cold words. Okay? Father, why did you lie to me? What did I lie to you about? What is "If you don't fail me, I won't fail you"? How did you get this? Yu Qiu Feng sent it to me.
Father, is this your writing on it? Yu Qiu Feng is cornering me. Here, have more. Here. -Thank you, Senior. -Thank you. Here. Thank you. Have more. You must be tired from the journey. Don't be nervous. Make yourself at home. Right, make yourself at home. Miss, I can tell you have learned some martial arts, just like one of us. Which sect do you belong to? I'm not a disciple of any sect. I'm only a maid. My master taught me some basic skills and that's it. Ah Xiang, don't be too humble. Uncle Master, her master is grand... Have more. OK. I will. Please forgive me, Uncle Master. My master leads a reclusive life he has a strange temper. I am not allowed to say his name. Uncle Master, there are different kinds of people in the martial arts world. It's understandable, right? Right. Do you have any family? No. I'm an orphan brought up by my master. But, he doesn't want me anymore. It doesn't matter. You are an orphan just like our Wei Ning. You both had a miserable life.
You didn't have a family, but in the future, you can dedicate to the one of your own. It's a pity that the timing is not right. If we don't have to seal off the mountain, I'll choose a day for you to get married after the Spring Festival. Uncle Master, why do we seal off the mountain? Dinner first. Ah Xiang, have some more. Right. I did have an affair with Tragicomic Ghost, Luo Fu Meng. At that time, she was the princess of the Neon Palace. Yet I was only a poor boy of a declining branch of Zhao. Her family disagreed with our marriage and grounded her. This bloodletter was sent to me by her at that time to show me her will. You two once loved each other. Then why did you fail her? It was because of that vicious Li Yao. Mother? I've said you are not allowed to call her that. She's just a bitch. You don't know what she has done to me. Back then, she was from a noble family and loved me deeply. I really appreciated that. I must be blamed for
not refusing her in time. So when Fu Meng and I were about to overcome all the difficulties and get married, she threatened me with my involvement in stealing in the armory. She demanded that I must go with her and break up with Fu Meng. Scorpion, if I was the only one behind that, I would not compromise. But it involved so many people and I couldn't get my friends in trouble. So I endured this humiliation and married into her family. Father, do you know that on the day of your wedding, Luo Fu Meng went crazy and slaughtered the Neon Palace? Do you know why no one has heard of her since then? It was because I tried so hard to find her and sent her to the Heal Valley for treatment. But when I was trying to subdue her, I was badly hurt by her. I can't make any progress in martial arts since then. I have ruined her life. If it wasn't me, she wouldn't end up in such a poor condition like this. Scorpion,
this is the most painful memory and the biggest shame of my life. I planned to take it to the tomb. But since you want to know, I'm telling you now. There's another reason for hiding it from you. I killed Li Yao as well. I figured. I was obedient and loyal. But not anymore. The Zhao Jing in front of you is someone who killed his wife, murdered his brothers, and scourged the world, who shall not be forgiven. The world has failed me, and I shall do the same to the world. But to you, my son... The old me has mostly died. But if I maintain a little kindness and a little affection for my family, they are for you. This is the last piece of pure land of my life. Promise me that you will guard it well. Do not abandon it. Father, it's my fault. I shouldn't have asked you this. I won't ask again.
Scorpion, you should know that you are the only one I have, and I'm the only one you have. If you don't fail me, I will not fail you. If you don't fail me, I will not fail you. Master. Don't call me that. Don't you have a new master already? How did it go? Did you find an answer? He said, it was his wife Li Yao who threatened him with the secret of the armory. I can't believe that his ability to make up stories is still as good. It was my dad who threatened him first. Why did he frame Li Yao? Because he killed Li Yao later. Li Yao was just a stupid girl. Although we were rivals in love, I didn't hate her. If I was the one who married Zhao Jing, the skeleton buried in the ground would be me instead. "He dallied with me and he forsook me in the end." (*Lit: A saying from "Yingying's Biography" ) I gave up everything for Zhao Jing. But I couldn't believe that he went for Li Yao, a high-born girl. My dad saw me cry all day and he couldn't bear it
so he threatened Zhao Jing with the secret of the armory and lured him with the leadership of the Neon Palace. That's why Zhao Jing had to marry me. But I didn't expect he could be that ruthless. He conspired with the traitors of our palace and slaughtered the Neon Palace on the day of our wedding. Master, it wasn't you? The past can't be verified. Both of you have no solid proof. If he is indeed cold-blooded as you said, why would he spare your life? And why would he keep and cherish your blood letter? You really… You really have little understanding of Zhao Jing. Do you know that all his life, he is most proud of his ability to fool everyone around. He keeps one trophy for each of his plots. I assume he has the ring of his master's and the sword that poisoned Rong Xuan. If you don't believe me, go and check for yourself. There should be something left by that stupid girl, Li Yao. It's very likely to be their love token.
If I'm not wrong, Zhao Jing has also given a special token to you to prove his sincerity, right? Master, tomorrow is the winter solstice. Will Senior Ye be back in time? Yes, indeed. Shall we make dumplings? Senior Ye said he wanted dumplings with cabbage and pork stuffing? What else do you know besides eating? Senior Ye requested it in his letter. Besides, I've worked so hard every day. Why can't I eat? You little brat, how dare you talk back? Be careful what you're learning! Alright. I'll buy some ingredients tomorrow. What else do you want? You're not going against his will this time? That old monster is in his late years. It's not easy for him to go through such a long journey to help us. I'll just fulfill his appetite. It sounds right. But he has such a good appetite, we should prepare much more food. The liquor is not good, either. How about this, Lao Wen? You hire a carriage to Qingshui Town and buy some good food and liquor. Great. Uncle Wen, I'll go with you. Go where? One round trip takes a whole day. Don't ever think about it. Stay and practice your martial arts. That's not fair. I have never slacked off.
Still talking back? Go to bed now. Lao Wen, get some rest. Shall we chat a while longer? And some drinks? I'll pass. We'll have a fierce battle soon. We need to have a good rest. That's right. You go to bed first. Let's go, Cheng Ling.
