[Episode 13]

With all the commotion in the city, I thought you wouldn't have come today.

Royal Father and Pingzhang are not feeling well too.

Too bad that I cannot offer much assistance.

I heard some rumors. Was it really Grand Madam Laiyang?

What people hold closely to themselves

is difficult to decipher by others.

All these years, she always stayed low-key, obedient,

and thanked the Emperor's grace repeatedly.

Who could have guessed that inside, she

was full of hatred.

I don't understand. What did she hate about?

Why did she target the Chang Lin Manor?

Of course you wouldn't understand it.

I only just understood some after asking Pingzhang last night.

Royal Father was the one who first uncovered Prince Laiyang's crime.

His Majesty was the one who oversaw the investigation, and the late Emperor passed the sentence.

Therefore, she hated everyone related to the case.

But because of her position, she couldn't do anything to His Majesty.

Of course Chang Lin Manor is the first she would target.

At least such a vicious person could not

get close to Royal Father and Pingzhang.

The hardships you've suffered will soon pass.


Commander, the Capital Patrols has been ordered to take over. They are awaiting orders outside.

Remember, the Marquis Laiyang is under investigation, he is not under arrest.

Once His Majesty is well, he will be summoned.

I don't know how well he could handle this misfortune.

Let your subordinates know this and take good care of him.

I understand.

Thank you for accompanying me to here.

I will go back on my own from here.

Safe journey.


What are you doing here?

Did you know it was all because of me?

What are you talking about?

She has been tormented all these years.

It's all because of me that she has been barren.

Because there are those who

believe that I should inherit Chang Lin Manor.

Do you have any wine?

Where is Pingjing? Why didn't he come eat?

He went out.

Well, have you asked what has happened to Housekeeper Zhou?

I've asked. Most likely he abused the name of the Manor and did something wrong.

You know, this is one thing that Royal Father cannot tolerate the most.

Since this is the reason, looks like there's nothing we can do about it.

Royal Father is unhappy about this. Don't bring up this matter anymore.

It's good that all these unhappy matters are finally coming to an end.

Though Marquis Donghai Mozi has left a message that he would return to Donghai,

before we can be sure that he is gone,

I am concerned that it is not the end yet.

The cicadas are pure and incorruptible, akin to Bo Yi's integrity and loyalty; (T/N Ancient Chinese statesman)

Such that even emperors and ministers alike wear symbols on their robes,

aspiring to uphold its unsullied noble aspirations.

Geqing tea. To help you become sober.

Drink it.

Lin Xi.

I should not trouble you.

But I really have nowhere else to go.

What do you want to trouble me about?

Can I hide here for a few days?

Why are you hiding?

I feel ashamed about going back.

I cannot face my elder brother and sister-in-law.

So you think hiding will make the problem go away?

Is this will going to be useful?

Xiao Yuanqi was still unborn when his father was ordered to commit suicide.

Mother and son have supported each other to survive.

Marquis, please be rest assured. This letter will be put to good use.

How long will it take to arrange everything?

Please be patient. The longer the spy is hidden, the better effect we will get.

When the time is right, Xiao Yuanqi will become

a poisoned knife for Donghai, as it appears.

Even waiting for three or five years is acceptable.

It is so windy outside,

where are you going?

Are you sure you don't want me to go?

This loud personality of yours

is really like Elder Meng.

Why are you talking about me all of a sudden?

Don't you feel like our home has become very quiet?

Pingjing hasn't come home in two days.

That's true. What's wrong with him?

He is probably just throwing tantrums.

Did Royal Father lecture him again?

I guess so.

The crimes of Grand Madam Laiyang are now very clear.

Marquis Mozi killed her first.

It is easy to take care of her burial.

But the problem is Yuanqi.

You think his mother's situations,

he knows about it?

I heard from Feizhan that he was in complete shock.

I believe he doesn't know.

I also believe that.

No matter what, even though criminals are evil, but they still love their children.

Not telling him is for his own good.

Yuanqi was very young.

Also he can't help with anything.

Your Majesty,

about his father...

No one probably has told him either.

After all, he is the previous Emperor's grandson.

I never knew you would be pretty good at doing this.

Of course! I used to do a lot of work at Langya Hall.

How long do you want to stay here for?

Lin Xi, I'll help you with work every day.

Let me stay for a few more days.

It's not that you don't like me.

Good thing Royal Father hasn't heard you talk to a girl like that.

Did you learn that attitude from Langya Hall too?

I know that hiding when you are upset is a habit,

but you have disturbed Miss Lin for two days, and you still don't want to leave?

You really meant for me to come pick you up?

What? You know I'm not a biological son, so you're not going to listen to me?

You will always be my older brother.

I just felt too ashamed to return home.

And also scared.

What are you scared about?

I'm scared your going to be mad at me.

Why would I be mad?

Big Brother, nothing has changed.

Everything is just like before, right?

Do you want it to change?

I don't need to lecture you.

You understand it already.

Let's go home.

Quick, get up! Get up! The Young Prince is coming here.

Young Prince, this area has been placed under restriction. You cannot casually move around.

Young Prince, about the crimes done by your mother,

you know very clearly.

I also don't need to explain about the rules of the government anymore.

We all are just doing our duty.

May Young Prince not make it difficult for us.

I just want to ask,

has Pingjing come these few days?

Putting the Laiyang Manor under restriction

is the task of our Patrol Guards.

Why would he come?

Big Brother!

Does Sister-in-law know?

When Royal Father adopted me, the family was not in the capital.

The people who knew about it, other than Mother and Housekeeper Zhou,

were the previous Emperor and His Majesty.

As time went on, naturally no one would mention it.

I'm not talking about that.

I am talking about that Housekeeper Zhou did it because of me...

Does Sister-in-law know?

Then don't tell her.

You're not willing. So I won't say anything.

Things already have happened, saying or not saying

doesn't make a difference.

I don't want to talk about it and add it on to her problems.

Oh right! Big Brother!

About me leaving the house,

can you not tell Royal Father?

If Royal Father knows,

then His Majesty will also know.

That might really be the case.

Pingjing really just ran away and hid?

Yes, this child is too honest.

He probably thought that he had offended his sister-in-law

and is a little guilty.

Although he indeed is involved in this matter,

the main reason was still a narrow-minded villainous person. It was really not his fault.

That rascal.

His elder brother waited a few days and went to pick him up today.

He wouldn't dare not to return home.

That's good.

Every since Pingzhang was young, he has been good at coaxing Pingjing.

Informing Your Majesty, the cabinet sent word

that the envoys from Donghai have reached E'zhou.

They will arrive in the capital in seven days.

I understand.


You tell me, this Marquis Mozi turned the capital into chaos, and their Donghai envoy troupe will just be arriving now?

Imperial Brother,

do you think this world-class fighter

would still dare to come see me?

I think, even if the Marquis Mozi is in the visiting group,

Donghai's envoy would not dare to admit

that this person has visited Great Liang.

Marquis Mozi is most likely not there.

Keep up!

Big Brother, do you think he already left,

or is still hiding in some place here in Jinling?

By all reason, Marquis Mozi should have achieved his objective in Jinling.

He did everything he would have wanted to do.

It's not wise for him to stay and provoke Great Liang.

For some reason,

why do I feel like he hasn't left yet?

You think something's wrong?

I am thinking about the note he left behind.

"My past grudges have been pacified. I should return to Donghai."

But that doesn't prove he has already left.

Why did he deliberately leave a note,

unless Is he scared that people won't know he left?

Marquis Mozi wants people to think that he left.

But he really hasn't left.

If he stays, what can he do?

That's hard to say.

The capital is large. If he deliberately hides,

In order to find him, it might take some time.

Although Jinling is a large city,

there aren't too many places that would interest the number one fighter on the Langya list.

Since we aren't too sure, we should prepare for it.

Strengthen our defenses.

That's true.

I can't help with that much.

But Pingjing is really useful.

Commander, just take him then.

I have other things to do, so I will leave first.

Feizhan, regarding Yuanqi, I think you must increase his security.

I understand. Leave it to me.

Oh, right, Big Brother Xun. You work inside the palace. How is His Majesty's mood lately?

Yuanqi wanted me to ask His Majesty a favor, to allow him to bury his mother.

Grand Madam Laiyang did so many crimes.

How can there be anyone allowed to collect her corpse and prepare a burial for her? She already got buried somewhere.

Your foundation is not bad. Your internal breathing is firmly strong.

If you are diligently trained, you still can achieve great improvement.

Who are you?

Let me introduce him.

He is someone who can help you

achieve everything you wish for.

What my heart wants,

how would you people know?

I, of course, know.

Donghai's envoy is here is pay respects to Your Majesty.

Okay, you may all rise.

Thank you, Your Majesty.

Envoy, you made an arduous journey from afar.

Our two nations have maintained a peaceful accord.

For us to be able to see you personally, and express our state's desire for close ties,

is our utmost honor. We dare not complain of any hardships.

[State Letter]

Which one of you is the famous Marquis Mozi, the top-ranked fighter on Langya Hall's list?

Our kingdom's Marquis Mozi has always admired the scenery of Great Liang.

In addition, the fact that he wanted to give an offering to Imperial Consort Shu,

that's why he was allowed by our king

to be included in the emissary troupe and to travel with us.


unfortunately, he was not sufficiently blessed.

After only arriving for a few days, he could not withstand dysentery,

and had to return home first.

We hope you would accept any lack of etiquette.

The water isn't clean?

How can a strong martial arts fighter get sick so easily?

Yes, we are not afraid for Your Majesty to laugh at us, but Marquis Mozi had been in seclusion for a long time.

Even our king doesn't know the real state of his health now.

In allowing him to travel with us this time, although there was a bit of oversight,

it wasn't done on purpose. May Your Majesty forgive us.

I think this Marquis Mozi is gravely ill.

On his return to your kingdom this time, doesn't your ruler plan to

nurse him well?

Yes. His Majesty also felt that he was a bit lax with him before.

We surely will restrain him more from now on.

[Memorial Tablet for the deceased Imperial Consort Shu of Great Liang]

[Memorial Tablet for the deceased Imperial Consort Shu of Great Liang]

[Memorial Tablet for the deceased Imperial Consort Shu of Great Liang]

Your Highness, I already said before

that Donghai sending people here is not really some big thing.

It's just building an offering hall,

and expressing their yearning for the dead, using their kingdom's practice.

Even His Majesty didn't personally attend it.

There is really no need for Your Highness to worry about this matter.

Yes, Elder Brother Xun is right.

I really worried unnecessarily.

We will no longer have to worry about someone...

who died seven years ago.

Your mother left a letter for you before she died.

Are you really not going to read it at all?

Although I haven't been through a lot of things,

I also am not an idiot who would allow people to use me.

My mother had been blinded by her nonsensical grudges for twenty years.

Before she died, she even got used by you two!

Did you two came here today to force me to walk the same path as hers?

The late Grand Madam was not wise in her ways and actions.

But, Young Prince, as her son,

do you really believe that her grudges were nonsense?

What happened back then, the investigation was clear,

I have to admit that

my late father was not wronged.

Even if he wasn't wronged,

as a royal prince, how could he be sentenced to death?

He could have been exiled, imprisoned or sent to guard the Imperial Tomb.

But what happened in the end?

Because of a stubborn and heartless father,

a Crown Prince older brother who only obeyed the Royal Father,

and Prince Chang Lin, who wanted to kill him so as to show his military might,

you were born without a father.

Even now, your mother's body was abandoned in the desolate outskirts.

What nonsense are you talking about? What nonsense are you speaking!

My mother...

Impossible. That's impossible.

Pingjing promised me, he promised he would help me!

On what basis do you believe the Second Young Master of Chang Lin Manor

would place your matters in his heart?

On what basis do you believe that he would

do his best to help you in your matters?

You were clothed and fed well since you were young.

You don't carry as much hatred as your mother did.

But I believe that you do have a lot of anger within you at this moment.

Because it is human nature to feel that way.

All of them are high and lofty,

it seems that they have every reason to be righteous.

They can be generous and forgiving, or stern, whenever they feel like it.

But for you, you never had that choice or that power.

Other than waiting for their decision, there's nothing you can do.

Shut up! Shut up!

Doesn't the Young Prince want to be a person like His Majesty and Grand Prince Chang Lin?

They have power.

They have the position.

They are able to dictate everything. They can determine the fate of others.

Even if the Young Prince bears no grudges,

I firmly believe that you are not willing to be a miserable person without any accomplishments like this.

Because you are the descendant of the previous Emperor. You are a son of the Xiao family.

How come Xiao Pingjing can be this reckless and arrogant,

while you can only stand on the border of the Imperial Palace and silently look up to them?

This letter records how your father begged very hard

just to survive,

and how your mother felt so inferior and unable to lift her head up when she was in the palace.

Is it not that you do not want to be a person like your parents?

You think that hiding here in your manor, not talking or doing anything,

breathing silently as if you are dead,

you can already be different from them?

Just read it.

Young Prince, fear is the greatest enemy of a human heart.

Kill it, and you can become a person above others.

Second Young Master.

- Take me to Xiao Yuanqi.

Yuanqi, it's me, Pingjing.


I've asked around.

Your mother was sent to be buried by the inner palace officer.

Even though there is no marker, we know the approximate location.

These past days, I kept looking for a chance to mention it to His Majesty.

But afterwards, something happened at home.


I understand.

People like me, a lowly offender,

will naturally just get mentioned if remembered.

If you forgot about me, it's fine.

I can understand that you are shaken up by this great change that happened in your life.

But ask your conscience,

it was because there was a bad seed, that's why there was a bad fruit.

The punishment issued by His Majesty,

is appropriate.

My father died as a criminal.

His Majesty was still willing to confer me a marquis title

and provide for me and my mother here in the capital.

What he did was indeed appropriate.

I just...

don't have enough blessings

to enjoy fortune and glory.

Right from the start,

he should have evicted us from the palace,

and eliminated any ambition or wishful thinking.

We could have just relied on each other to survive

and wished for a good ending.

I asked my father.

Everything was very clear regarding that old case. Nothing was unclear.

It was your mother who held that bitterness in her heart,

and turned His Majesty's grace into a opportunity for vengeance.

You are usually sensible and balanced.

Can you not understand?

If His Majesty is so full of grace and mercy,

why couldn't he let my father live?

The late Emperor was still alive. How could His Majesty make the decision?

Moreover, you've read the case report.

Prince Laiyang committed a crime that was only punishable by death.


If Father wasn't

the legitimate son of the late Emperor, as was His Majesty,

maybe he would have survived and not died.

Xiao Yuanqi, what are you saying?

My Lord, this way, please.

You and I are brothers of the same clan, we have known each other for years,

I thought I understand you?

Even though your mother has committed many evil deeds,

I never believed that you knew this beforehand.

Do you know why?

Because you believed and trusted in me.

That's right.

I believe that you are innocent,

I believe that you can differentiate right from wrong.

But what did you mean by what you said just now?

Don't tell me in your heart, His Majesty was hypocritical in his care and concern for you?

And what happened to your father was a consequence of the fight for the throne?

- I didn't mean that.
- Then what did you mean?

I don't know what's happening to me.

But Pingjing, since you were young, you have had the support and care of your father and elder brother.

I've lived an orphan's life and could rely on no one.

You cannot understand how I feel!

His Majesty has considered that you are of the royal family.

He has discussed several times with the court ministers

that he wants to come up with a solution for you to live.

- If he knew what you have said just now-
- Pingjing.

I-I was confused, so I blabbered nonsense.

There is no need to let His Majesty know about this.

I have always hope to get affirmation from His Majesty.

You know this more than others.

Of course I know.

Verbal decree from His Majesty. Xiao Yuanqi is to enter the Palace to meet with His Majesty.

Luckily when you were talking nonsense,

I was the only one who heard.

♫ The long, slow song rises like wind flowing through the corridors reaching the imposing, opulent and bright Imperial Hall ♫

♫ There is little intention to return the real men to the war in the north, though willing, they are not given free rein ♫

♫ Discussions about their heroism led them to be questioned, and suffer dismal complaints around them, unable to clear their names ♫

♫ Good bows hoarded; likewise, so as not to injure, sigh against the way of heaven when stored indefinitely ♫

♫ Clouds of fear calm shameful waves, the night air stops their bickering by starlight ♫
