[Episode 15]


Did you find something strange, that's why you sent someone to fetch me this early in the morning?

What Second Young Master guessed was right.

Five of the seven largest horse stable owners, staying here in the capital,

had checked-in at Fulai Inn last night.

They talked in secrecy for the whole night. It has never happened like this before.

Do you know what they were discussing?

I don't know. None of our men were in there.

But I heard there are going to be more people today,

and they will discuss more.

[Chang Lin Manor]

What did you do?

I didn't do anything.

Those items were discovered by the Patrol Guards themselves.

Big Brother, think about it,

we haven't completed the talks with Northern Yan yet. The content is still classified.

These horse stable owners were able to hear of the government plans beforehand and are thinking of ways to counter it.

Big Brother, do you believe then that they don't have any connections with the government?

It seems like you didn't listen to what I was telling you.

Collusion or not, we are in charge of the military.

You shouldn't waste your time on things like that!

I was just curious, I didn't get on anyone's bad side.

That is because you are a bit quick-witted,

and your actions aren't too excessive.

I did everything you told me.

I didn't catch anyone to investigate.

And I didn't accuse any government officials without any basis.

I am just going to secretly listen to what those horse stable owners are going to discuss tonight.

That isn't a huge mistake, right?

Big Brother?

You be careful.


Just as you predicted,

the seven largest horse stables have decided to risk danger to survive.

They are going to gather their men here in the capital, to block Prince Hui by the city outskirts.

They think that as long as they are able to hurt that Prince Hui even a little bit,

the two states will surely turn hostile against each other, and the peace negotiations will be halted.

A bunch of simpleminded, greedy fools.

The manner of how the horse stable people planned to act is indeed a bit too simple.

Do you think they can succeed this time?

Whether or not they succeed, I don't care.

But we can exploit this situation.

Are you sure that Xiao Pingjing went to the inn last night?

Xiao Pingjing not only went to the inn,

he also heard the whole meeting of the horse stable owners.

Very good. Go back and devise a plan.

Let the horse stable owners do their hindering plan an hour earlier.



Yes, Master.

Get Duan Tongzhou.


Do you have a way of taking the men of the Patrol Guards with you,

without telling them the reason first?

Big Brother, don't worry. I know what to do.

No matter how organized the horse stable people are, their numbers will surely be lacking.

Just using the strength of the Patrol Guards is indeed enough to deal with them.

There definitely won't be a problem.

Besides, there's me!

Good, it's in your hands.


[Prince Tuoba Yu of Northern Yan, fifth-ranked on the Langya list]


While the mantis stalks the cicada, the oriole is already at its back.

But among the people in a game,

everyone will think that they are that oriole.

Such a good opportunity.

Why not give the Young Prince this easy opportunity?

I don't understand.

Help me make some ink.



You are...

This is for Young Prince Laiyang.

Young Prince, what are you doing?

His Majesty said you can't go out!

His Majesty allowed me to grieve here in my manor for three months.

He never said I can't go out.

Young Prince!

If you really just want to go out and relax,

I won't stop you.

But if you are going to do something else,

others won't know, but do you think I can't guess it?

Just burying her in a simple manner and not allowed to set up any offering,

that I already endured.

But as a human, since I know where my mother is buried,

- how can I hold it in?
- Young Prince!

Young Prince!

Grand Madam can see your filial piety very well.

But right now, if anyone catches you doing anything bad,

we don't even have any palace connections anymore.

Uncle Tai, don't worry.

No one respects the Laiyang Manor in the entire capital.

So anything that I do, or don't do,

won't be noticed by anyone.

Young Prince!

Leader Sun, everyone has already gathered outside.

Tonight, I initially had a meeting arranged with Commander Xun.

I fear that I might not be able to come back on time. Go and inform Commander Xun about it.


Ah Yu, are we going to be there soon? (T/N familiar address from the Prince to his bodyguard)

After traveling for so many days, Imperial Highness Prince Hui must be already tired.

Just endure it a little more. We will be able to reach the capital by today.

[Northern Yan's Fifth Prince: Prince Hui]

The horse stable people were just clothed the usual way,

and came out of the city in small groups. They just passed by ten minutes earlier.

We still can catch them in time. Let's go.

Uncle Tai, wait for me here.

Young Prince. Young Prince!

It is indeed you.

Who else would care about you?

Where is my mother buried?


I am unfilial.

Thank you for your guidance.

No need to thank me.

This area is high on the mountain, and the forest is dense.

From now on, you can secretly come to pay respect to the Grand Madam.

Sect Leader.

Master Duan, no need to hide anything from the Young Prince.

Tell me.

Everything is going as you have predicted.

Xiao Pingjing has already led the men of the Patrol Guards out of the city.

Also, the people at the horse stables have been prepared.

They are just waiting for the emissary troupe from Northern Yan to arrive.

Once the two sides start to fight, Xiao Pingjing will surely take the bait.

Since you are here, there of course won't be any problems.

Chang Lin Manor has been too calm.

If we don't let them feel any pain, how would the capital start anything?

What are you guys going to do to Xiao Pingjing?

Can't you guess?

Why would you let me know?

Guess again!

You want me to tell Xiao Pingjing?

Smart. Riding to the sky on the dragon and phoenix. (T/N Chinese idiom: to curry favor for advancement)

Also, you need to make a point of your sincerity next.

I am giving you this favor.

Young Prince!

- Young Prince!
- Hurry up, let's go!

Young Prince! Where are you going?

I have an urgent matter. Don't follow me.You can go home.


Young Prince!


Ah Yu, what's wrong?

Your Highness, please wait. I'm just going in front to ask.



Why are you here?

Leader Sun of the Patrol Guards led a large number of men and left the capital with Pingjing.

Do you know anything about it?

It looks like you already know.


I heard people from the Patrol Guards talking about some "horse stable" matter.

Do you know what happened?

We are the Northern Yan emissary troupe. We came to Great Liang for peace negotiations.

Who are you, and what are you doing?

We are just a bunch of Great Liang businessmen.

No need for us to mention our names. But if the peace negotiations that the Imperial Highness Prince Hui came to our capital for

But if the peace negotiations that His Imperial Highness Prince Hui came to our capital for are successful,

it will greatly affect our business.

So please relay a message to His Imperial Highness Prince Hui.

Irregardless, we will not let His Imperial Highness Prince Hui enter the capital to proceed with the peace negotiations.

Imperial Prince Hui still doesn't know the details of these peace negotiations.

How come you already have such conclusions?

Could you have just been instigated, and used by someone else?

Hope everyone can investigate it first, before making any conclusion.

Our news came from the government, so it is naturally trustworthy.

May Your Imperial Highness Prince Hui just turn around and go back to your palace. Go back!

You mean, they are really going for it?

You were born and raised here in the capital. You don't know that beyond Xiguan, (T/N near modern Guangzhou)

the stealing of pasture lands and water sources

has always been common thing done in a simple and barbaric manner. It is not surprising if they will stake everything on this.

That's why you just turned a blind eye, and let Pingjing lead the Patrol Guards out of the capital.

You really don't care?

What should I be worried about?

The fighting capacity of people that were just suddenly gathered by the horse stables will surely be limited.

How can someone like Duan Tongzhou be there?

You think it is me?

Feizhan, what are you thinking?

Pingzhang, I am suspecting how this horse stable matter

was so easily leaked out, when it is still

under discussion in the cabinet?

Looks like connivance between businessmen and government officials is also a common thing in Great Liang.

What if we insist on entering the capital?

Then don't blame us for starting!

This time, it's the hand. Next time, it will be the head!

When did he pull out his sword?

Withdraw! Withdraw!

Protect Prince Hui!

Be careful!


Chonghua, you must not be disrespectful.

The Patrol Guards of Jinling came here to protect and escort the emissary troupe. Is Imperial Highness Prince Hui alright?

He is alright. The welcoming practice of Great Liang is indeed unique.

What kind of people are those earlier? Why did they try to attack Imperial Highness Prince Hui?

They...They are just bandits.


The Great Liang's capital has always been full of exquisite items and flourishing.

Never thought that its vicinity is also this lively.

I will lead my men now to arrest them!

Big Brother Pingzhang! Big Brother Pingzhang!

Big Brother Pingzhang.

Yuangqi? Aren't you supposed to be in mourning at home?

Why are you here?

I went out of the city earlier, and saw Duan Tongzhou in the city outskirts.

Are you sure?

It is not my first time to see him since Datong Prefecture. I can't be wrong!

I think there is a trap set against Pingjing.

This is bad. Prepare the horses!


Leader Sun, escort Imperial Highness Prince Hui into the capital!

Second Young Master, come back! Hurry and come back here!

Protect the Imperial Prince! Protect Imperial Highness Prince Hui!

- Cavalry Team, follow Second Young Master! Hurry!
- Yes!

The Second Young Master is intelligent,

but didn't realize he himself is the target today.

Heir of Chang Lin.

Commander Xun.

Where is Pingjing?

Replying to Eldest Young Master, we met a powerful enemy earlier.

After hurting some of us, he escaped to the direction of the forest. Second Young Master went after him.

-Pingjing also went?


Endure it.

Duan Tongzhou.

Is that one earlier the Heir of Chang Lin, Xiao Pingzhang?

I am Commander Xun Feizhan of the Imperial Jin Guards. Greetings to Your Imperial Highness Prince Hui.

Commander Xun, no need for formalities.

But Heir of Chang Lin is...

He is rushing to save his little brother. If he has offended you,

please forgive us.

- That young person was the Second Master of Chang Lin Manor?
- Precisely.

In front of a great enemy, he was able to still be smart in his response. He indeed is from a great family.

Why did Your Highness say such things?

Didn't the Commander notice that someone is missing

from my troupe?

Commander, saving a person is more important.

It will be too late, if you arrive late.

Yes, Your Highness.

Since I have fallen into your trap, it's clear that I won't be able to escape anymore.

But before I fall, you should tell me

who really are you serving?

I have experienced how smart you are.

Dream on! Before you are in your last breath,

I won't say too much!

Second Young Master is indeed hard to deal with. But to keep fighting like this,

since you are alone, how long can you last?

That way!

Prince Tuoba, why did you come this late?

I must first ensure the safety of His Imperial Highness Prince Hui.

Let me introduce you: that is Duan Tongzhou, Master Duan.

In the Langya Chart, your Hanhai Sword Technique

is exactly just one place lower than his.


Are you alright?

You came just in time.

Pingjing, how are you?

I'm fine.

The chance is rare. I will deal with him.

Be careful. We want him alive!

Please take care of the rest. I will first take Pingjing back.

Don't worry. Leave it to me.

[Chang Lin Manor]

Big Brother, I'm fine. All are just superficial wounds.

After I sleep, I should be fine.

Miss Lin?

They are indeed just superficial wounds.

See? I told you, but you still didn't believe me.

Big Brother.

Your older brother always tells you to be careful,

but if you listened then, you wouldn't have looked for Duan Tongzhou.

Do you know what kind of person he is? He is fourth-ranked expert on Langya Court Martial Arts List.

So what if you were able to catch him? Would you kill him right there and then, or arrest him and bring him back here?

Don't blame Pingjing. I was the careless one today.

Thinking about it now, it was really so frightening.

If Tuoba Yu didn't accidentally go after you...

It wasn't accidental. I asked him to go.

This is the Dark Fire of the Netherworld on the Langya Chart.

Prince Tuoba, don't you want to see how good it is?

Leader Sun, protect and escort His Imperial Highness Prince Hui.

Even so, it was still too dangerous today.

I still have something to do, so I will leave it up to you, Miss Lin.


Miss Lin. Old Master Li has known Royal Father over thirty years.

Has he ever mentioned Pingjing's marriage agreement?

He mentioned it.

Royal Father doesn't want to break his agreement with his old friend, and has let Pingjing wait.

He has waited until he is twenty-one now. It's quite enough.

Third Aunt took her daughter away, and has not shown up yet. She must have already chosen to end this fate.

Pingjing has worn it, to show his loyalty.

Royal Father said,

let's arrange another marriage for Pingjing next year.


why are you talking about this?

Congratulations to the Second Young Master, but this matter has nothing to do with me.

I don't know why Big Sister Meng is telling me about it.

I am leaving now.

Why didn't you say anything?

- What should I have said?
- Dummy!

Let me see you off!

Prince Hui of Northern Yan and all his men have already been escorted to the Imperial Inn.

Duan Tongzhou's body has also been brought back.

It is currently placed in the morgue of the Ministry of Justice.



thank you for coming with the news today.

Although I coincidentally saw Duan Tongzhou,

I was still a little late.

Pingjing is lucky to be safe. No need to thank me.

What is important is you had the intention.

Oh, right, why did you go out of the city today?

No need to say.

To say that the deaths of your parents didn't affect you

woould be lying.

But the past is the past.

Your future

is still up to you, whether you believe it or not.

No matter if you believe it or not,

I am the most qualified person that can say these words to you. Hope you can fully understand them.

I understand.

Thank you, Brother Pingzhang.

Duan Tongzhou died!

It is true. His corpse has already been found. It is now placed in the morgue of the Ministry of Justice.

With his skills, even if he failed, he surely could have escaped.

Something must have gone wrong.

Go investigate it.

♫ Memories of that certain year, when far-away borders blazed with fires of war, in vast fields of ice and snow ♫

♫ From this world, the many slanders pass through the vermilion gates, over the palace walls ♫

♫ Beneath iron armor, together with silken skirts and silver spears, hair grows hoary as though with early frost ♫

♫ Hoping for the day when we can sincerely join hands in a faraway place without a second thought ♫

♫ Fiery liquor consumed at the end of the world, at the limits of exhaustion, is a feast! ♫

♫ 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 ♫
