[Episode 26]

The criminal is escaping! Hurry and go after him!

Can I thank Young Prince for saving me?

Why must I save you?

I can use a big secret in exchange.

I still have another accomplice

in causing this plague in Jinling.

Customer, please.

This is a testimony that I personally wrote.

I initially planned to escape first,



then look for a chance to send it back to the capital, so as to cause another storm.

Since I bumped into you, I will just give it to you as a gift.

It contains evidence that you can use against Her Highness the Empress.

Now everyone knows that you are a sinister and cruel, crazy person.

Using a testimony written by an insane person, you want to topple Her Highness the Empress?

You think I am also crazy like you?

If I add to it the written decree by Her Highness the Empress,

for me to make a divination prayer to eliminate the bad fortune of the Crown Prince?

She even wrote a decree?

Indeed.

She cannot be that stupid, right?

For her child, a mother...

Being confused is so normal.

I lied to her,



that I need a written decree to set the sacrifices on fire, as an offering to the heavens.

In fear and trepidation, she wrote this.

We both know that

Her Highness the Empress is of high status, and even has an elder brother who is the leader of the cabinet.

Even if I take this item, I might not really have a chance to use it.

But something is better than nothing.

May I thank the Young Prince again for saving me?

Thanks.

Having someone who knows your secret is a weakness.

That's why, towards the House of Chang Lin,

I never kept any secrets from them.

There is only one thing that I cannot let them know.

That is the agreement between me and Marquis Mozi.

No matter if you really want to leave Jianghu for good,

I will be more at ease if you are a dead person.

Very good.

A child like this...

must become worse

and more cruel,

so you can achieve your grand ambition.

I am tired now.

I am just going to rest for a bit.

Why must we avoid the blood transfer treatment method?

Xi'er,

did you think of an idea?

Master, because Pingjing's poison has already activated, he cannot personally move his vital channels.

He needs other people to take in the snake gallbladder first before transferring it to him.

Weren't we already able to resolve this step?

That is right, Master.

That is right. That is right.

If we seal off other channels, the effectiveness of the xuanchi gallbladder can be increased.

Moreover, we can limit the losses during transfers.

Then using one snake gallbladder to cure the poisoning of two people is plausible!

Master,

is it plausible?

Theoretically,

it is.

But regarding the division of the snake's gallbladder...

You two come with me.

The reason Xi'er and I were able to find a new way to cure the poison

was all thanks to this Langya copy that the Heir's Consort found.

Inside it was a very rare medicine.

The recorded effect of this medicine just happens to be lysis of blood clots. (T/N breaking down cell membranes)

Du Zhong was able to find some (of this medicine) in our pharmacy.

We formulated the medicine in advance and had Second Young Master take in two pills.

The effect seems to be good. We were already able to make his vital channels move.

This book also mentioned that in curing the frost bone poison,

you only need two-thirds of the medical effect of the snake's gallbladder.

I estimated it earlier that the losses in transferring blood,

and in being able to personally move one's vital channels, one will use one-third of the snake's gallbladder.

That is why this method might be plausible.

It then means that using the snake's gallbladder to cure the poison of two people is actually the same as

using one gallbladder to cure one person's poison. It must rely on the person personally taking in the snake's gallbladder,

plus the medicine that can loosen the blood clots,

and the doctor sealing off all non-vital channels.

This will cause the snake's gallbladder to move the energy in the vital channels,

get transferred into the yin channels and internal organs, and then--

Please forgive me for being slow-witted.

I cannot understand medical principles that well. Old Master Li need only to say

if it is plausible, and how should I cooperate.

Of course, it is plausible. It is just that the cure still mainly depends on

the xuanchi's gallbladder.

You two will each take in one portion.

But Pingjing has already been poisoned for a long time.

The drug effect that will be left for the Heir...

might not be enough.

Did you not say that there is already no problem?

May Sister Meng calm down.

We have already deduced all important aspects, and found that there will be no problem.

We just want to try to fully explain it to you two.

Do not rush. Let us let Old Master Li finish his words.

Old Master Li is saying that you must first seal off my four limbs,

and just let my vital channels flow. What does that mean?

To put it simply, the poison within PIngjing is stronger.

Hence, the medicinal portion that must be given to him should be larger.

That is why we must first do acupuncture on the Heir

to seal off the unimportant channels, and just preserve the vital channels.

Once we have cured the clotting cold poison, we will then proceed with recuperating the other channels.

Is there any danger?

During the treatment, the Heir will lose consciousness and his breathing will decrease.

It indeed will look dangerous, but his life is safe.

It is just that your body will surely suffer some harm,

and you will need to be bed-ridden for several months, before you can fully regain mobility.

I initially thought that this was a dead end.

Now that we have found a win-win method,

it is already like coming back from death's door.

No matter what the risk is and no matter what the end result will be,

we brothers are thanking the hard work of Old Master Li

and Miss Lin in advance.

Since I was able to get the Heir's trust, I will not say much more.

We cannot delay Second Young Master's treatment anymore. Let us start then.

Heir.

Come in.

Informing the Heir, there is a person outside who is requesting an audience with you for an important matter.

He insists to talk to you personally.

What more important matter can there still be right now?

Refuse it. We will not see him.

I also have met this man before.

Hanhai?

Tuoba Yu of Northern Yan.

This person will not come to Jinling City for no reason at all.

Old Master Li, please wait for a while. I must see him first.

Do not worry. It will not take long.

Heir of Chang Lin, long time no see.

For Prince Tuoba to travel far to come here, what important matter can it be?

The Heir should know that since Prince Hui got assassinated,

the situation in our government has changed drastically.

I heard about it.

Prince Chen led the government and successively lost the battle with the rebel army.

At present, it look like we do not have any more retreat path to take.

He then staked everything and convinced His Majesty

to secretly sign an agreement with Great Yu.

A secret agreement with Great Yu?

I actually do not know if I should tell you this or not.

I just feel that if Prince Hui is still alive,

he would never want to form any personal grudge with the Chang Lin Army,

just because of a small, immediate benefit.

What kind of secret agreement did His Majesty of Northern Yan made with Great Yu?

Great Yu agreed to attack the northern region that the rebel army has taken

and help in transporting rations to our army,

while His Majesty, in return...

His Majesty agreed to open up the mountain path in Yin Mountain.

He is allowing the royal army of Great Yu to use this path to move towards your western border.

Open up the mountain path of Yin Mountain? That is your southwestern gateway.

Our kingdom is already in an unstable state.

His Majesty has long ago lost any rationality.

When did it happen?

The secret agreement happened last month.

Great Yu clearly had prepared for this for a long time, so they surely will move fast.

What our Northern Yan needs the least now is a mortal enemy.

That is all I can say. Heir of Chang Lin, take care.

Heir...

Pingzhang. Pingzhang.

Royal Father...

Royal Father...

His Majesty will be coming back tomorrow.

The different aspects in the preparation for his return have also been completed.

I'm putting you two in charge to oversee everything.

Yes.

I should be the one supervising the matter, actually.

However, I am just too anxious over the developments at Chang Lin Manor.

Therefore, this time...

I will trouble you two.

Commander, you are too considerate with your words.

This is only where our duty lies. There is no toil to speak of.

Can't be.

This is impossible.

We are healers, not divinities.

The treatment we discussed is already at the summit of what we can do.

There is no room for discussion!

Old Master.

Old Master Li, are you aware

that the Great Yu's royal army is already in Northern Yan, and once they surpass the valley of Mt. Yin,

what the landscape will look like?

I am not aware. I do not know.

It's too late already to just alert my royal father.

The blades of the enemy force will cut off the back road directly!

My royal father's camp, once besieged, the military order will fall into turmoil for certain.

And as the Chang Lin Army's Deputy Commander,

the only person who can come to them with the reinforcement for rescue,

I am the only one.

I am the only one!

My royal father will face a crisis of death soon.

I...

cannot possibly...

lie here with my eyes shut!

You must do this?

But I have no other method.

You have not been poisoned for more than three days. You only need to take the xuanchi gallbladder.

Then you can perform self-healing with your martial arts energy.

What about Pingjing?

Old Master.

This is what the truth is sometimes.

Though you do your all,

in the end,

you only return to where you started.

I have met Puyang Ying's medical disciple.

His wits were clear.

It's only his body that was weak.

He said this.

I know you're upset.

But with Pingjing and my royal father in front of me,

how else can I choose?

If I beg you earnestly.

If I beg you to choose yourself...

Would you consent to it?

I would.

I beg you.

I beg you not to abandon me.

Could you?

The hardest part

is the aftermath, is that right?

Yes.

Pingzhang.

I've known you since I was little.

I understand all your thoughts.

If you give me your consent today to stay.

Then later?

With each passing year, with each passing month,

you would only regret more and more.

Until you cannot face yourself anymore.

Until you cannot face me anymore.

I'm sorry.

I'm very sorry.

My Pingzhang.

My husband.

My good husband. Do you know?

How I wish you could hold me like this forever.

Don't leave me.

Don't leave me.

Old Master.

I've been a physician for several decades,

and have never taught anyone to hurt themselves.

No matter what you want to say,

my opinion will not change.

Miss Lin.

Heir of Chang Lin.

You have been up north, and have seen the battlefield.

You should know that should the enemy cross the border, countless people will be killed.

While under a siege, our days felt like years.

I have made up my mind. Miss Lin, please help me again

as you did in Ganzhou.

When you two were still infants,

any old promises were simply the opinions of your elders.

However, Miss Lin, after getting to know Pingjing,

and going through so much together,

your feelings for each other

have nothing to do with other people, their old promises or responsibilities.

This is the fate between you two.

Heir, you know everything already?

I guessed.

Yet you didn't say anything.

Because the old promise made by our elders was

an act of good faith, and was not intended to be a hindrance.

You have the ability to make one of life's most important decisions yourself.

Our Pingjing...

also deserves

to marry a maiden who treats him wholeheartedly.

If Pingjing knows what I did today,

he may never forgive me.

I know my request will become a heavy burden for you.

So, please promise me...

that you will not tell him anything.

It will be best if he has no idea about what happened here.

- Commander Xun.
- Commander Xun, the manor is not taking visitors today.

I have an urgent matter to discuss with the Heir's Consort.

Commander, this is the Consort's order. Please do not make things difficult for us.

Commander! Commander!

I must see her!

Commander, we act under orders. Commander--

-Xiao Xue.
- Please do not make things difficult for us.

- Xiao Xue!
- Commander!

Senior Sect Brother.

Senior Brother Dong Qing just told me about Pingzhang.

Xiao Xue.

How can you be so muddled?

How can you let him do this?

He has to consider your feelings.

It doesn't matter why he is doing this,

I will not let him go through with it.

Our marriage vows hold us together.

On the day I married him,

I knew what type of person my husband was.

Senior Sect Brother.

My apologies.

[Xiao Pingzhang's Military Memorial to His Majesty]

Your Majesty.

Imperial Brother has been held up in a difficult circumstance.

I can rest assured now that you're heading to the front line.

The situation on the battlefield is unknown. I will give you the jade seal and golden talisman.

Size up the situation, and use if needed.

Thank you for your trust, Your Majesty.

You may rise.

Pingzhang, I have read your military memorial.

A surprise attack and siege is a smart move,

yet is extremely dangerous to execute.

I only hope...

that you and Imperial Brother can return safely.

With Your Majesty as the Chang Lin Army's shield,

- this expedition will be a success.
- This expedition will be a success.

Feizhan, I have another matter which I can only entrust to you.

Just feel free to tell me.

Since I have used the late Emperor's order token,

it's not wise for Chang Lin Manor to continue holding onto it.

I'm entrusting it to you for the time being.

Wait until...

Wait until they send me back later on,

then you hand it over to His Majesty.

I know.

[Chaoyang Palace]

As the descendant of a general's family,

I was never a gentle and virtuous woman who would confine myself to the house.

Thank goodness you've never minded this before.

Rather than seeing you go to battle and wait for you to come back,

I prefer to go into the battle, be by your side and meet the challenges together.

Since the border is in danger, everyone can be a loyal and responsible citizen.

Let me go with you this time.

After listening to your reports on the matters on epidemic,

I was never at ease during this period.

Though Li Gu has confessed, I feel that it isn't as simple as it seems.

A thorough investigation needs to continue.

We obey.

Of course, the most urgent matter now is the battle at the northern border.

The Military Department has to be vigilant. All military supplies

must be not have any more errors.

I will surely see to it personally.

Your Majesty, please be rest assured.

Xi'er.

Xi'er.

Lin Xi.

What's happening to me?

You were poisoned.

Poisoned?

Where's my older brother?

Your older brother has gone into battle.

Battle?

What are you doing?

- I'm going out.
- You have to lie still and not move!

Pingjing! Pingjing!

- Let me go.
- Pingjing.

Pingjing. Pingjing!

Let me go.

Pingjing.

Pingjing.

Let go of me!

Pingjing!

Do you know that it wasn't easy for us to save you?

You can't even stand up still! What use is it for you to go to the northern border?

Pingjing.

Big Brother Xun. Big Brother Xun!

You just woke up. What do you want?

Lin Xi just told me. Northern Yan opened up the entrance to Yin Mountain.

The headquarters of the Chang Lin Army will be the first to take the hit.

Big Brother and Sister-in-law have gone to save Royal Father. How can I still lie down? Let me go!

Calm down!

Calm down.

All will be well. Your older brother and sister-in-law will be alright.

They will be well.

Right now, what you need is to lie on the bed and rest.

Be good. Let's go.

I don't have to go to the northern border now.

I just want to look at the map in my older brother's study room.

To simulate how the battle will go at the northern border.

Once I recover, at least I know what's going on,

so that I can know where to go to help.

I know. I'll take you to that room.

Miss Lin Xi, don't worry. I'll take care of him.

Let's go.
