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

[Episode 28]

Brother Xun.

Sister-in-law is willing to rest and recuperate at Langya Court.

It's the best for the child.

It's good that she's willing to go.

Are you leaving the capital to send them off?

Can I go with you?


I've been taking care of Sister Meng's health.

I'm going with her.

I know it's not your fault.

But every time I see you, I can't help but think

there could be,

there could be a different ending.

I'm sorry I can't help it.

I can't help it.

Senior Disciple.

Take care.

Thank you.

Dong Qing, please take extra care

- during the journey.
- Be rest assured, Second Young Master.

Take care.

Pingjing has always been like this.

Whenever he can't accept the reality, he would bury his head,

hide away and refuse to face it.

Don't blame him. He needs some time.

You too have thought about this, right?

If I too had insisted not to carry out the treatment.

I admit I've thought about it.

Or rather deep down in my heart,

I had hoped that it was like that.

However, the crux of the matter is

that this is Pingzhang's decision.

Do you like it?

Royal Father.

I have something I would like to report to you.

What is it?

I plan to leave the Capital and go to the army at the northern border.

Have you thought about it carefully?


I should take over the burden that had been on Older Brother's shoulders all this while.

Since you are willing,

then go to the army camp at Ganzhou, and train yourself well.


Your Majesty, Second Young Master of Chang Lin Manor was outside the hall, he bowed

and bade farewell.

Royal Father, why did Pingjing ge-ge bid farewell outside the hall?

He didn't want to come in?

He would lead Pingzhang da-ge's army at Ganzhou well, right?

Royal Father.

One son has just passed away, now he has to send another away.

Is Old Prince really that afraid the army authority would fall into the hands of others?

Her Majesty,

these words aren't beneficial for you and others.

Even if it's spoken in private, please don't speak of it anymore.


- Yuanqi?
- Pinging.

What are you doing here?

As a son of Great Liang, I should fight in the northern border.

Could you please bring me with you to Ganzhou?

It's not an easy task to be enlisted in the army.

I know. So when I heard the news,

I went to the Military Bureau and even asked His Majesty. He has permitted me to do so.


Pingjing, I won't give you trouble in Ganzhou.

Even though we are born into rich families, I'm from the family of generals and have been wandering in the pugilistic world,

I'm still different from you.

Life at the border is harsh and cold, can you really take it?

Even if I can't take it and sneaked out from the camp,

I believe you won't send anyone to arrest me, right?

Since you have ambition, I won't stop you.

General, a message from Langya Court!


A nephew. My little nephew.

So tiny. Really looks like Heir.

How could you see the resemblance to Heir from such tiny feet?

You must be happy.

General, this pigeon is injured.

How did this pigeon injured itself?

Physician. Physican Du!

Physician Du, look, this pigeon is injured.

Why are you shouting? I'm a physician, not a vet.

Physician Du.

[One year later]

Wait a moment.

Let me do it.


Royal Father.

Royal Father.

Drink this medicine.

Old Prince, the Medical Bureau

has sent all the recent medical records of His Majesty.

Yuanshi, you have been learning from the Cabinet on court matters,

you weren't lazy or mischievous, right?

Royal Father, I admit I was a bit mischievous in the past.

But now, I hope I can pick up things faster so that you don't need to overwork yourself.

During this time that I was sick, my Yuanshi has grown up a lot.

I am now 13 years old. I'm no longer a child.

Please continue to sleep. I'm going to help you organise the summaries.

The Medical Bureau's records are detailed and use of medicine is appropriate.

They have done their best as physicians. I couldn't do any better than them.

But His Majesty has been taking the medicine for so long,

and his health has not improved.

Just say it.

How long more does His Majesty have?

I don't dare to give my opinion on this as I have not made a consultation personally.

But at least he can still live until after the new year.

Minister Jin, please hold on.

- Minister Jin.
- Chancellor.

His Majesty is sick and yet he wants to meet with you.

I believe it's of something important.

I thought you would be in discussion for a long time,

why is it that you are leaving the palace so quickly?

His Majesty is not that well,

he only instructed me to do one thing. It didn't take up much time.

One thing? What is it?

His Majesty has decreed to bestow upon

Xiao Pingjing of Chang Lin Manor the 3rd rank of General Huaihua,

and the main General of Ganzhou camp.

Pingjing has done very well In Ganzhou for the past year.

The reports from the military mentioned that he made solid contributions.

But Your Majesty, you should have let me know in advance of your intention to confer him the title.

I can't let you know in advance.

This child is still too young.

When his older brother was conferred the rank, it wasn't done in haste.

It was different for Pingzhang back then.

You were in your forties and I wasn't old.

Don't you know very well

why I'm this anxious?

I thank His Majesty for his generosity.

Congratulations, General Huaihua.

May I ask about His Majesty and Old Prince's health?

Old Prince has gained some grey hairs,

but he's still healthy.

What about His Majesty?

His Majesty's health is still manageable.

His Majesty is seriously ill and can't get out of bed.

The Imperial Harem is not required to greet him personally,

even I cannot go near him.

Every matter is being converted by Grand Prince of Chang Lin.

He has even summoned Royal Uncle Prince Ning into the Palace.

What on earth are they discussing about?

Don't be anxious, Her Majesty. Crown Prince

has been by his side all this while.

Crown Prince is only 13 years old. What does he know?

Royal Uncle, you are old yet I have to summon you into the Palace.

I have long wanted to see you, Your Majesty.

You are younger than me by 30 years.

It's alright, you will recover soon.

I have been lying down all this while, and can't get out of bed.

Royal Uncle,

I have thought about many things.

I have thought about things which I have never thought before.

Frankly speaking,

the person I'm worried about is Royal Brother.

Why are you saying this? I have

been living and eating well in my manor. But my eyes

still can see things very clearly.

Grand Prince of Chang Lin is

completely loyal to you and Crown Prince.

Could it be that I have thought of the opposite?

I don't understand what Her Majesty is worried about.

His Majesty is seriously ill. It's within reason to summon members of the royal family.

Moreover, Crown Prince has been serving by his side.

What is it that Her Majesty is not at ease about?


Her Majesty is not worried about the situation at hand.

She's worried about the future.

Though the current situation is harmonious,

when His Majesty can't continue anymore,

a young heir takes over the throne,

When the king is young and the country is worried and doubtful,

it's recorded in the history annals that mutiny arose and many died.

We are in a crucial situation now.

What happened in history are right before our eyes.

Shouldn't we be on our guard?

I do not know how you want to be on guard.

From outside, Chang Lin Manor seems high and lofty and impenetrable.

Grand Prince of Chang Lin has high position and great authority. But I know very well that

Royal Brother has been out in battles his whole life without ceasing.

And because military officials are not allowed to meddle in court affairs,

so he doesn't know very well the affairs of the state.

He had Pingzhang around back then,

that child was sharp and thorough, and helped him oversee things.

But now that Royal Brother has lost his right-hand man,

he doesn't look well day by day.

His only child is still at the borders.

After hearing what you said,

it pains me very much.

I know I don't have much time left.

Your Majesty.

Once I pass away,

no one can say for sure

what will happen in the court,

what will Crown Prince's heart and character be like?

Maybe others will say with a young king at court,

the person who should worry the most is Crown Prince.

But I know the person I'm most worried about is Royal Brother.

He's old,

he has been fighting in battles for the country the whole of his life.

If he doesn't come to a good end,

how can I face the late king when I see him in the nether world?

What? Ask Old Prince to live in luxury in Wei Mountain?

His Majesty has very relationship with Old Prince.

When His Majesty passes on, Old Prince will be very sad.

Why not let Crown Prince send him to the mansion at the Imperial Tomb?

This way, at least the brotherly ties can still be uphold.

Then what if Old Prince is unwilling to go?

Your Uncle is Senior Grand Secretary,

you are responsible for the security of the palace.

Crown Prince will be the new king of Great Liang,

if he makes the suggestion, Old Prince will take that into consideration.

If Old Prince goes to Imperial Tomb, Pingjing is also not in the capital,

the borders is far away. Any news will take a month to reach.

With all these in mind,

both of you will be at ease, right?

So long as everyone lives in harmony, and get what they want.

isn't this much better?

You are at ease,

I think His Majesty will not be at ease.

Her Majesty, Uncle,

do you know why I'm in charge of the palace security?

Because at this moment now, the only person whom I obey orders from

is His Majesty.

I'm not a clever person since I was young.

I don't have any exceptional insights or wise opinions.

If I have any strength to speak of,

it's just that I have lived longer, seen more hearts of people than most, that's all.

Old Prince of Chang Lin has great authority and high moral,

this is a fact. No matter how humble he is, or how much he gives in,

it's impossible that no one will be jealous of him.

It's impossible to grasp the court situation and the hearts of people easily change,

I have the same thoughts as you. Royal Brother is already in this position,

he cannot always give in.

Might as well...

Might as well retreat for the sake of advancing,

this is considered the last arrangement for me to make.

Your Majesty, be at ease. I understand.

I know what you are worried about. You're worried that His Majesty

cannot pull through this time.

The northern border is quite peaceful now. If you're worried, why not go back?

Your position is different now. You don't have to ask for permission to go back if it's only you and your personal guards.

It's because of the current situation that no matter how worried I am, I have to stay here.

That's right.

His Majesty has been very ill, everyone in the capital is not at ease.

It's better for Uncle with you commanding the troops at the border than you going back.

With strong neighbours surrounding our country, in their eyes,

it's the best chance to strike at us at this point of changing rulers.

Chang Lin army is in charge of guarding the borders. We have to

be even more vigilant at this time.

That's right.

We are talking about the same matter right now.

Royal Father.

Royal Father.

Yuanshi, you

haven't matured enough. As a father's responsibility,

I should been teaching and supporting you for a few more years.

But the late king is lonely in the nether world,

he wishes for me to meet him earlier.

Royal Brother.

Royal Brother.

Your Majesty.

After I pass on, you have to listen to your Royal Uncle's teachings,

be diligent and receptive to advice, be a benevolent ruler.

Your Majesty.

I want to get up.

I, His Majesty,

today summon the officials and royal family here is to

entrust my child in public, with the new king ascending the throne,

Old Prince of Chang Lin will--

Your Majesty.

guide him in all state matters.

We obey your decree.

We obey your decree.

Royal Father.

Older Brother.

Older Brother.

Yes, I'm here.

Royal Father!

Your Majesty!

- Your Majesty!
- Royal Father.

- Your Majesty!
- Royal Father!

Brother Tingsheng.

Brother Tingsheng, come chase after me.

Look, how well are these two children playing together.

- That's right.
- Don't fall down.


Your Majesty.

You passed such a decree on your deathbed,

have you ever thought for our child a bit at all?

This generation after generation,
[Emperor of Great Liang has passed away]

even he has passed away.

- Record it.
- Yes.

♫ 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 ♫

♫ Luminous cherry trees, deep-rooted with long and slender frames, still sport magnificent flowers ♫

♫ Unexpected torrential rain and heavy wind, what does it matter? ♫

♫ Between the trees, the moon brightly guards peak after jagged peak ♫

♫ Banners tremble, drums roar, a ribbon of a thousand horsemen ride back up the ridge to settle the score ♫

♫ 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 ♫

♫ 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 ♫

♫ Hoping for the whole world to remain at peace, quench the fires of war ♫
