[English subtitles are available] [Cry Me A River of Stars] [Ep2] The Springtime Pleasure Boat is open. [Cloud County, Midland] You can't escape from me. I am here. [Springtime Pleasure Boat, Midland] Ghosts and demons, make way. Miss, people usually prepare meat [Rong Xiu] for ceremonies like this. We only have fruits and vegetables. It's all just formality. It's the heart that matters. Are you sure? She's right. [Er Shui] Shut up. What is this for? Nothing. Nothing. Take him. My Lord. My Lord. My Lord. My Lord, please let me go. I do this for a living. I don't earn much, nor have I hurt anyone.
I am telling the truth. My Lord. Even if he's a fraud, you don't have to do that to him. I don't have to? Fine. Let me prove it to you. My Lord. -My Lord. -See? He's an Azurelander. My Lord, forgive me. Take him. My Lord, forgive me. My Lord, forgive me. My Lord, forgive me. Do you have anything to say? I didn't know that. My Lord. My Lord. I've been wronged. I really didn't know his identity. I hired him because he didn't charge much. If I knew that, I would hire someone more expensive. Get up. No. Azurelanders are cunning. They hide in all walks of life. It's hard to tell them from others apart. Although I believe that you have nothing to do with that Azurelander, we did find him in your boat. How about this? You need to report to the Tao mansion every day. But... Do you want to go to the South Island and be interrogated? I... [Tao Mansion] [The Study, Midland] My Lord. If Azurelanders didn't betray us, my parents would not die in the war. I watched my parents' heads hanged up at the gate of the Westland. It was excruciating.
You carried your father's sword, fought the battle, and killed the king of Westland, Situ Tian. I think you've avenged your parents. From now on, I will protect the country with this sword. My Lord, Miss Fan is here. Let her in. My Lord. My Lord. You are from the capital. This is what Cloud County is famous for. The fish with four gills. I just caught them. They are fresh. -Cao Qing. -My Lord. Take them away. There you go. What do you want to say? My Lord. My Lord. May we have a talk? If you give me my flute back, I will report how I spend my days in every detail. What do you say? Alright. My Lord, after settling my dad in the morning, I went to get myself a meat pie. Thin skin, great filling, cheap, and delicious. My Lord, if you want to have a try, I can get you one tomorrow. Get to the point. Alright. The point. After finishing that pie, I spent all my time on my boat, hoping that someone would come. But I come here and report to you every day. No one dares to talk to me. My Lord. Don't you feel sorry for me? At sunset, I went home hungry. It was pretty cold and windy last night. And my door was broken. My dad and I had to suffer stand the wind. We almost caught a cold. What's worse is that I can only fall asleep holding my flute. My Lord. Look at the dark circles under my eyes. And my red... He's gorgeous.
Cao Qing. My Lord. Jailor Cao, what are you waiting for? Get me my flute. Ger her out. Yes. My Lord. My Lord. My Lord, my flute. My Lord. My Lord. My Lord. Go. My Lord. My Lord. My Lord. [Tao Mansion] Your flute is not there. Lord Tao, let's talk it over. What are you doing here? I, I... I am here for my flute. If you have returned it to me, I wouldn't bother to come here in the middle of the night. How did you get in? I never went back. There are so many mosquitoes here. Look at my face. My Lord. My Lord. I just want my flute back. Please let me go. My Lord, you... I, I... Don't you want me to let you go? Fine. You can go. Ten days. If you are willing to spend 10 days cleaning the mansion, I will let you go. How about my boat? So that's a no? That's a yes. I am more than happy to do that. Then, Lord Tao, you may let go now. Cao Qing. Well, Lord Tao, if that's everything, I'll excuse myself now. Wait. No need to wait till tomorrow. You don't have to go.
You can clean up the study now. You may go home after that. Keep an eye on here. Yes. Why didn't you dodge? My Lord, you must be kidding. I am just a girl. How can I dodge your sword? Clean up the yard. I... Fine. Lord Tao, I will make sure this place is as clean as a new pin. Just rest assured. I... My Lord, may I do anything else for you? [Cai Yun] It's pretty late now. Why hasn't Lord Tao come out? [Ao Qing] Just wait. Be patient. Who is that? [Tao Mansion] Li Fan. She got out from Lord Tao's study. Lord Tao, has he lost his innocence? No way. That slut must have seduced him. Give her to us. Just give her to us. We won't leave until you do. Give her to us. Where is Li Fan? Give her to us. Just ask Li Fan to come out. Get out of our way. Where is she? Li Fan, come out. I'm coming. -Dad. -Is it her? It's her. It's her. What are you doing here? Tell us. What do you have to do with Lord Tao? Tell us or we will tear your house down.
Girls, you've got it wrong. Wrong? What have we mistaken? What have we got wrong? Come here. Just come here. Let's go. Come here. Let's see what you've got to say. Actually, I was in the Tao mansion because I am a servant there. A servant? There's nothing between Lord Tao and me. Nothing? Do you know why I would work as a servant there? Why? Why? It's all for you. For us? For us? Why for us? Come over here. No one's buying that. That's right. There are many Tao's personal belongings in the Tao mansion. Personal belongings? I will try to take some out and share them with you. Girls, let's go. Keep your word. Don't forget about it. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Dad, it's fine now. It's all fine. Fanfan, I am scared. Very scared. Dad, you are safe now. I will earn money from them and get you some food. [Tao Mansion] My Lord, I didn't mean to watch you taking a bath. I will take what I want and leave. The hot water is ready. Good. You may leave now. Why haven't you left? My Lord, do you want me to rub your back? No.
My Lord, your clothes seem dirty. Let me wash them for you. Let go. Who are you? I noticed something was wrong as you came in. I am a servant here, Zhuang. Zhuang? No one here is named Zhuang. Li Fan. No. I am not her. I am not her. I am not her. Li Fan. I am not her. [100 tael for puppet, 20 tael for chopsticks] I want this one. Here's the money. Please line up. One after another. -Here's the money. -Don't rush. Stop. Stop. I have prepared a surprise for you today. Look at those figures. They look just like Lord Tao. Exactly. This is what I've mentioned to you before. Customized figures of Lord Tao. Have you seen this person? I don't know her. I have never met her. No? My Lord. My Lord, look. What is this? This is one of the figures Li Fan ordered based on you. What is she doing now? She was selling these to your admirers on her boat. What? Shut it. Right. I also think
that crazy woman should shut up. I mean you need to shut that boat down. Yes, I am off to it. [Forge Ahead In Storm] How was the dinner? That's the best restaurant at Cloud County. Am I not generous? Generous. Very generous. Very generous indeed. I am really talented in making money. This is your salary this month. From now on, we can get rich by selling Lord Tao's stuff. Just take... Jailor Cao, what brings you here? Look at me. Sorry, I forgot that I need to clean the Tao mansion today. I will be there in no time. Right away. Hold on. Hey. I have a message for you. What? You stole and sold Lord Tao's personal belongings and damaged his image. Lord Tao has ordered that your boat needs to be shut down until further notice. You... You have got no proof. You can't just pin that on me. My Lord. Gosh. This... You replicated his seal. This alone is enough to send you to jail. Lord Tao has been very kind to only shut down your boat. Jailor Cao, I mean, we can share half of what we earn with you.
Don't take this away. How generous. Half of what you earn. Illicit benefits should be confiscated. Wait. Jailor, Jailor Cao. Wait. Jailor Cao. [Tao Mansion] Lord Tao. Jailor Cao. Let's talk it through. I am sorry about what I've done. Lord Tao. What now? Please, let me see Lord Tao. I am telling you. This is not your home. Lord Tao is not your dad. You can't just barge in and ask to see him. By the way, stalking, prying, and harassing are all illegal. Women are no exception. You two, keep an eye on her. Yes. Jailor Cao. Jailor. [Tao Mansion] Hey, yellow guy, please don't bite me. It's impossible. I just had one big meal. Lord Tao. You, you... Please help me out. Help me out. Lord Tao. Lord Tao. Please, let me explain. Lord Tao, I didn't mean to sell your stuff. Your fans are just crazy. If I didn't give something to them, they would tear my boat apart. You mean you are innocent, right. Lord Tao, I am ignorant,
but I had no choice. My boat has just opened. Now you've shut it down. I can only come here to fight for myself. I am kind to only have it shut down. Lord Tao, I think you are trying to get back on me. Why would I do that? Because you believe there is something going on between me and Lian Qi. That's why you don't like me. I never take back my order. I'll leave you here. Lord Tao. Lord Tao. Please help me out. What are you looking at? [Tao Mansion] Miss, Fanfan, Miss. Dad. Dad. Fanfan, where are you? Fanfan, get yourself out. Fanfan. Why did you get stuck there? Miss, how did you end up here? It's all Tao's fault. He didn't let me in. I can only get in through this hole. Didn't expect to get stuck here all day. Where is your dad? Dad. Dad. Uncle Li. Three. One, two, three. One, two, three. Here. My Lord. Find some artisans to make that hole bigger. Yes.
Umbrellas for sale. I will never visit that Tao mansion again. Never again. Sugar-coated haws. I need to treat myself to something nice to recover from yesterday's incident. Umbrellas for sale. Fragrant pouches for sale. Freshly-made steamed buns. Miss, have a look. How much is this? Three cents. Three cents. I knew that someone is following me every day. Come here. Steamed buns. Steamed buns. [Tao Mansion] The Springtime Pleasure Boat. Hey conches, time for class. Read after me. Peach. Peach. Flower. This... This... This is... What are you doing here? I am teaching the conches. Do you know these characters? Of course. Peach. Flower. This... This one's too hard. I don't remember it. County. As in the Peach Blossom County. Right. County. My Lord. I lost track of Li Fan.
She's missing. Missing? I've searched everywhere. Couldn't find her. Fanfan is missing. No. I need to find her. Just stay here and wait for me, okay? Just leave that to me. Who are you? Why would I let you look for Fanfan? I don't know you. I am Tao Junran from the Bureau of Military Affairs. I've heard of you. Fanfan talks about that Lord Tao all the time. I can believe you then. Send out the soldiers. Communicate through flares. We can't stay here for long. [Zhu Zi] Tao Junran will look for her once he finds her missing. Find her some new clothes and get her changed. Let her drink this, just in case. Who are you? What do you want? Don't be scared. We won't hurt you. Drink this. No. I am telling you. I lost my parents as a kid. I am severely sick. You won't get anything even if you kidnap me. You will be sentenced. It's not worth it. I am telling you. Lord Tao is like a brother to me. Once he finds me missing, he won't let you go. No matter what you want, I won't cave in. Just let me go. Fan, don't blame me. I need to take you home, no matter what. Get prepared. We are leaving. We are already halfway out of Cloud County's territory.
Dun, hurry up. Make sure we get to the Geese Lake before sunset. What's wrong? My stomach hurts. Your stomach? Well, we are almost there. Just bear with it. I can't hold it. Nature calls. It seems that it really hurts. Keep an eye on her. Alright. Dun, stop. You may do it here. Please turn around and get away from me. We are both women. There's nothing to hide. I can't do it with you watching. Don't try to play tricks on me. Even if you run away, we will get you back. Protect Lord Tao. Lord Tao. Lord Tao. Sorry I am late. He's an Azurelander. Take him back and interrogate him. Yes. Bury him. Take his body. Yes. It's fine now. I will send you home. Dad. Dad. -Fanfan. -Dad. Fanfan. -Dad, I am back. -Fanfan. Fanfan, you are back. I am back. Fanfan, what happened to your face. My face? Let me get you a mirror. I... This... Dad, it hurts. What should we do then? Fanfan is in pain. What should we do? Medicine. Here, Fanfan. Put it on. It can help with the redness. Just use it. Put it on. Let me find you some water.
Since you are home safe, I shall excuse myself. Wait, Lord Tao. Anything else. Lord Tao, the flute you took from me, it's the only thing my mom left me. My dad doesn't remember anything about my mom, except that flute. I have never met her. To me, that flute is the symbol of my mom. It means that I also have a mom. Why would you tell me this? Because... Because you won't believe me if I don't tell you the truth. If that flute is what your mom left you, of course I will return it. Thank you, Lord Tao. Anything else. One more thing. Well, I probably look skeptical after what happened today, but I had no idea why those Azurelander would want me. I have nothing to do with them. I understand. I will send your flute back tomorrow. Thank you, Lord Tao. [Tao Mansion] Peach. Flower. This... This is too hard. I don't remember it.
