[Nirvana in Fire 2: The Wind Blows in Chang Lin]

[Episode 22]

How is it?

It's coming

I have a feeling, this time it will work.

The law nature is unclear and unpredictable.

With my age, the more I have sensed how weak a human effort is.

But as a healer, until the last minute,

I do not wish to give up


When evening comes, if the sick start to show more even breathing, then give the second dose


Ancient Supplementary...

Ancient Supplementary...


Do not worry, I did not fall ill.

Mainly because there are people in our manor that are getting sick too.

how can I not worry?

Look, are you not also helping?

A few days ago, I did not dare to tell you, Miss Lin also fell ill.

What did you say?

Don't panic

After Old Hall Leader treated her, she can now stand and walk around.

Pingjing just sent a message that the latest treatment

has had an effect towards the illness

and perhaps morning, we will hear good news

That means this illness has a cure

It's still too early to say so.

Everyone should just continue doing their best.

but I have believed all along

that this Jinling City, our Great Liang's territory,

will overcome this disaster in the end.

Thank you, Sir


It has taken a turn for the better.

Thank you.
You must be hungry.

Thank you, Sir. Thank you.

You're better now.


Old Master Tang

Sir Tang...

Old Master Tang...

Old Master Tang, I am not seeing incorrectly, am I?

There is really an effective solution

According to my experience, I would say

except for those especially weak and that had gotten much sicker

70-80% of the infected can be healed

This is the latest prescription we came up with.

There are still some individual differences in effects that required adjustments.

It requires the doctor to make the decision on his own.

Minister Tang is also a doctor by profession. No need for me to be such a nag.

I understand.

Minister Tang has to plan the whole city's treatment.

You surely have a pile of matters waiting for you. I will not delay you anymore.

I take my leave, I take my leave.

I know...compared to other people

your sentiments are different.

Now you can at least breathe a sigh of relief


Please understand, Mother,

Your son does not want to spend his life being used by others

In the future, I intend to walk a path you could never have imagined

The more it is at this time, the more we cannot be lax. I know that you are short in men.

But the clinic of the different epidemic wards, the pharmacies, the storage area of the Medical Bureau, and the rations warehouse

are critical areas. There must be someone guarding it day and night.

If there is really difficulty in filling up shifts,

then request High Commander if he can help mobilize some people.

His Majesty is not in the palace.

The Jin Army surely has excess men to spare.


Deputy Sun, go ahead, if there's anything the matter, send someone to look for me.

Yes, Heir

Greetings, Brother Pingzhang.

In these circumstances, you are out and about

is there a special reason?

Yuan Qi has something he'd like Elder Brother Ping Zhang to look at

Even though your illness is recovering, it was a serious illness

Didn't Old Master Tang want you to rest?

What's the matter?

The most important ingredient in this medicine is Bai Yin herbs

and I just remembered, before the outbreak of illness, there was someone who bought up a large quantity of Bai Yin herbs

and the pharmacies cannot replace the stock so quickly

I worry

Purchasing it at a high price? Why? Is this medicine rare?

This medicine is not common and there are abundant sources for it.

There is no point to keep a storage of it. I feel that this is not a coincidence.

Lai Yang Manor was searched with Commander Xun leading personally

He is so meticulous, how did he not discover this confession letter?

It was after the search, that Pu Yang Ying gave it to me

All my mother's actions that year, were instigated by Pu Yang Ying

Mother also explained it all in the letter.

How come you didn't report about this earlier?

Pu Yang Ying has the status of High Priest, and the trust of the Empress

and my mother

and my mother is a criminal who died without any memorial table.

Her letter of confession...even if I reported it, what do I want to do? What can I do?

It would be just looking for trouble.

I'm not afraid to be laughed at by you. If not because I heard that Qian Tian Court got closed down a few days ago,

I would not dare to come to Chang Lin Manor today.

When Pu Yang Ying sent the letter on behalf of your mother, what did he say?

He surely has a motive for acting like this, right?

He knew that my mother and I have relied to each other for survival.

That's why, he hoped to instigate me to take revenge

like how he manipulated my mother.

This letter seemed incomplete. It seems there are missing pages.

Those pages wrote about some past events

and some vented anger and muddled grudges.

Although as a son, I shouldn't criticize my mother. I am not willing to see these words for a second time

so I burned them all by then.

Yuanqi, even if someone did instigate and manipulate her,

All your mother's actions, were still her actions

Yuan Qi understands, since I'm coming to speak with Elder Brother Ping Zhang

It's not to use Pu Yang Ying to resolve guilt for my mother, but another reason

Another reason?

Yuan Qi may not dare to report Pu Yang Ying, but I am very aware of his movements

I was able to trail the page boy close to him several times when he went around the capital to communicate their schemes.

I remember the two accomplices, I met them several times.

have often come out of Qian Tian Court, and these two assassins are still in the city central



Elder Brother!

Senior Grand Secretary! Senior Grand Secretary!

Senior Grand Secretary, the Medical Bureau has repeated tested this prescription and found it effective.

Minister Tang ordered me to immediately hand it over to the imperial physician in Taiqing Palace and to treat the Crown Prince

base on this prescription.


Quickly send it in.

First, we must confirm the total number of white yin grass in the whole capital.

It must be given to the Office of Imperial Sacrifices for unified distribution.

That probably can temporarily stabilize the general situation.

I will personally handle this.

But regarding the details of how long it can last, how much is the deficit, how do we fill them up,

we need to ask Old Hall Leader to personally go to the Medical Bureau and personally negotiate it.

Okay, I will inform Old Hall Leader now.

No need. I will leave that task to someone else.

Yuanqi came over earlier and said some things.

I think that you handling this matter with him is most suitable.

Heir, ministers.

Thank you for Old Hall Leader for coming. Hurry and please sit down.

This is the total amount of white yin grass that we can

find in the imperial pharmacy and outside the palace.

Please take a look first.

- Half a month.
- Yes.

That is also the conclusion of the Medical Bureau.

I fear that these stores are only enough to temporarily control the disease to not worsen here in the capital.

- But...
- But if we want to placate the plague,

we have to come up with enough stocks that must be delivered into the capital before half a month's time.

Talk. What really is Puyang Ying plotting for starting this epidemic?

What is his motive?

Do not waste anymore energy. As the sons of Yeling serving Master,

we do not fear death anymore.

Immediately committing suicide once caught.

What kind of people are these?!

All are crazy people. Normal people will never understand them.

I even thought that by catching them, we will be able to know anything.

What's wrong?

I think that

this concerns the safety of the citizens in the whole Jinling City.

Even if there are risk, we must ask help from outside.

Does Heir have any new ideas?

The nearest area from us is Wei Mountain. Not only are there a lot of doctors accompanying His Majesty,

there are still the 6 head ministers.

Won't it be faster and more proper for His Majesty to personally make a decree about this?

But if we send someone to Wei Mountain, won't we--

Although this plan is not perfect,

comparing the people of the Ministry of Ceremonies going around and asking for help

with the risk of sending just one messenger out the city,

I think there is no need to discuss it anymore.

If Minister still have any more questions,

just send my disciple instead.

If you let him be the messenger, no problem will arise.

Store Manger Du going out of the city bears no risk? Why?

Any survivor of the epidemic before

will never contract the illness again

and will never pass it on to anyone.

- Minister Tang surely knows that too.
- Indeed.

This...he is also...

Yes, I am from Yeqin.

When the epidemic happened, I was just 6 to 7 years old.

My memories of it are a bit blurred.

Only when Old Hall Leader returned to the city did I realize that the plague suffered by Jinling

is the same with the epidemic

that made me an orphan.

It is already rare for one to survive.

And this time, you are even able to exert an effort in saving this city from crisis.

It must be comforting to your loss already.

May Minister Tang hurry and write the letter now.


Look. The tattoo on these 2 people are the same as Duan Tongzhou, just lacking half of it.

They are indeed the same.

So Duan Tongzhou works under Puyang Ying.

All are assassins and they have the same tattoos.

Can we then conclude that all close associates of Puyang Ying

will have the same tattoo on them?

We can't be sure.

But to think backward, it might hold true.

What does that mean?

Currently, we were only able to see this tattoo on three corpses, so we cannot conclude

that all of Puyang Ying's men will bear this symbol.

But thinking it the reverse way, this symbol is very unique.

It surely will not appear in a person not associated with him.

- That's why--
- That's why, no matter who he is,

as long as he has a tattoo like this,

even if he is not a close associate of Puyang Ying, he surely is connected with him.

But the tattoos are all under their clothing.

Unless we already suspect them and deliberately check it, how can then we know who he has it?

Is there anything wrong?

I kept feeling that I have seen this tattoo even before Duan Tongzhou.

With you saying that, I also feel that this tatoo

looks familiar.

Now that the epidemic has not yet been placated, if there are no new discoveries,

just take note of this and let us temporarily leave it a question.

Good thing, you are here. I have some matter to trouble you.

Say it.

The capital governor Li Gu is still locked up in the Celestial Prison awaiting his trial.

The capital has been in chaos for quite a long time. I still am not at ease when I think about it.

Can I trouble you to go...

No problem. I'll go now. I'll see if he still has anything to say.


Are you sent by Minister Xun?

Minister Xun already told me

that as long as identify Puyang Ying and not say anything more, he will ensure my safety.

What are you trying to do?!

Open the door!

Open the door!

Is the judicial commissioner here?

I did not know that High Commander Xun will be coming today so I failed to welcome you.

Hope you will forgive me.

Take me to the prison of the criminal Li Gu.

High Commander, please walk first.

It is here.

High Commander.

Li Gu is an important government criminal. You must strictly watch him.


High Commander!

- High Commander.
- What is it?

A message from the palace. His Imperial Highness Crown Prince is awake.

- Really?
- Yes.

Inform the judicial commissioner I'll be back tomorrow to do a check.


Your Highness, His Imperial Highness is much better now.

Don't worry, Your Highness.
For the matters outside of the palace,

I taken care of everything. Just act like you don't know anything.

Don't say anything unnecessary.

We've been so busy for the past half a month, and I've forgotten to ask you.

Why don't we see sister-in-law?

She's just in the Eastern Courtyard. She has never went out.

No way. What did you do to keep her home?

A daughter obeys her father, and a wife obeys her husband. If I don't let her go out,

She of course could only listen.


If it was true then it would be great! You should know what kind of a person she is.

With all the big problems going on, she definitely wants to help.

Since it's like that, I found some things for her to do.

Young Prince, recently, you didn't casually go out.

I feel at ease about it.

Young Prince.

Uncle Tai, you have been in the manor for 20 years.

You saw me grow up.

Although we have a master-servant relationship.

Aside from mother, you are the closest person to me.

I have no roots or businesses. I am supposed to wander forever.

I owe your manor great debt of gratitude for willingly accepting me.

Time flies, and I've spent almost all my life here.

My only wish is

to see you stay safe and sound.

Greetings, Your Highness, Crown Prince.

You may rise.

Crown Prince, you are still weak. Why don't you drink the medicinal soup?

Your Lady Majesty, it seems like Crown Prince

is willing to Heir's words.

I do not know much about what is happening outside.

I only heard from Senior Grand Secretary that it is all thanks to heir's hard efforts to save us from this crisis.

Your Lady Majesty has overpraised me. The capital is in danger, so every citizen should do their duties.

You two brothers can chat with the Crown Prince for a while.

I am feeling exhausted after these days. I need to rest.

Brother Pingjing!

Your weak body can't handle the wind now. It's best to rest in bed.

You have no idea how long I've lain in bed.

This is what being sick is about. You can't rush the recovery.

If you will be obedient, during the hunt this autumn, I will take you to hunt for a bear.


Hush. Your mother has just left, she can still hear you.


I am Ge Peng, the deputy commander of the Yulin Army in Wei Mountain. I was ordered by His Majesty

to transport first 5 trucks of medicinal grasses for emergency use. The rest of the ingredients will be delivered in a few days!

- Men!
- Yes!

At this time, the city should have just noticed that there is a short supply of white yin grass.

Why did the first round of supply already arrive?

But Master, there really is--

Enough. I heard what you said clearly.

Disciple, get up now.

Thank you, Master.

We can only say that they were smart

and handled it ahead of time.

Take this.


Be careful.

These past 2 days, I kept thinking.

That tattooed pattern was so finely and clearly made.

It does not look like someone just came up with it out of nowhere. Since it got selected to be the symbol for Puyang Ying's assassins,

it should bear some meaning.

Lin Xi, you knew all the plants in this world. Maybe you can recognize it.

Help me and look at it. If you cannot recognize it too,

I can only go ask Old Master in Langya Court then.

The Medicinal Bureau has already sent the new batch of medicinal ingredients.

You can see how busy I am here.

How can I have time to go to the morgue and look at the tattoo of some corpses?

You indeed look too busy to be able to leave.

I'll then just go there one of these days. The coroner has a copy of the pattern with him.

I'll just drew one and bring it over. Just look at it when you get the time.

Look at this prescription.



Where are you going in such a hurry?

I just got got off from my shift. I plan to go to the Celestial Prison.

Why are you going to the jail?

With the capital being in such a rushed and muddled state, Pingzhang is worried that the Li Gu that is locked up in the Celestial Prison.

He asked me to rigorously interrogated. He is after all an important government criminal. It is better to be careful.

You didn't know then.

Know what?

Since Capital Governor Li Gu knew that he will not be able to escape capital punishment,

he already committed suicide inside the Celestial Prison.

What?! Committed suicide?! In the Celestial Prison?

These past days, people are in fear for they do not know if they will survive or not.

It cannot be helped to have some negligence in the security of the prisoners in Celestial Prison.

It surely will not be as strict as before. You should not be this surprised.


No, I don't believe it was suicide.

Second Young Master.

I heard that you have caught two bad guys a few days ago.

Sister Yun, you got the news so fast.

The capital is in chaos and bad state now,

yet there are people who still stir up trouble, this is so terrible.

I wonder why would they do such devious and evil acts.

Did the authorities manage to find out the reason?

Do they have accomplices in the capital?

We didn't have the chance to interrogate them. They died on the spot.

The guards on duty have family members who are sick.

It's inevitable that they are not vigilant.

But we didn't think he would commit suicide.

Only these people?

Yes. The capital is in chaos lately.

Ever since Li Gu was thrown in prison,

not many have visited him. Those who visited him are written in here.

How about those not recorded in this book?

How could it be possible that their names aren't recorded?

Do you plan to brush me off with that statement?

Commander, whether the security of the prison is tight or loose,

though that might be dependent on who's on duty,

there's still a limit to it. I don't dare to act recklessly and without restrain.

I can guarantee that whoever was here to visit Li Gu,

whether are they recorded

they are people with authority and power. No unauthorized persons was in.

People with authority and power.

- Sect Leader.
- Speak.

The third batch of herbs has entered the capital.

Just that the gates are still closed,

there's no way to get any news from within.

I don't know how are Wu Bing and Wu Liang doing now.'

I'm more concerned about Mdm Yun.

If she couldn't accomplish it,

it's difficult for us to make our next move.

This plant grows in the deep valleys of Yeling.

Its leaves are like palms, its flowers are red like fire,

its fruits are like pearls, it has a wine-like fragrance.

It can't be found anywhere else.

Its name is Mozhen flower.

So the drawing is Mozhen flower.

Look here.

Unless you have extraordinary talents and are selected from thousands of children,

you can't enter the doors of Yeling Hall.

The fact that you are here,

and have the tattoo of Mozhen flower on you,

it's an honor

and you have brought glory to you family.

You should treasure this

and not be a disappointment.


Young Prince.

Young Prince, I've looked around the nearby streets earlier on.

The situation has been stabilized.

Looks like this epidemic is coming to an end.

Many don't dare to step outside, yet you are running around and are not scared.

Young Prince, when the epidemic was at its peak,

I couldn't stop you form leaving the house.

Thank goodness you are alright, and didn't fall sick.

I'm sure Grand Madam is protecting you.

That's right.

The world is a cold place, I'm an orphan without any family,

other than myself,

I can only depend on the empty spirit of the dead to protect me.

Young Prince, don't be anxious.

I'm a good swimmer, I can fetch it for you.

It's good that it's noon and the water isn't cold. Sorry to trouble you.

It's alright. I will surely fetch it for you.

I will surely fetch it for you.

Uncle Tai.

Second Young Master, have a safe journey.

Thank you.

- Young Prince, I found it.
- Come up, Uncle Tai.

Young Prince.


It's been hard on you. Please put on your clothes.


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

♫ 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 ♫
