[Episode 49]



How come I was unable to make my mother stay...

I also was unable to make you stay...

What did you do to Sister Anru?

Your Majesty had better be concerned about your own situation first.

I am sure that you already know.

The Prince of Chang Lin wants to rescue you, so he asked Prince Laiyang to give his conditions.

He indeed seems to have the intentions of making an exchange.

Your Majesty must be thinking that this is good news, right?

What do you mean?

I was willing to follow Prince Laiyang to revolt...

not only to seek justice for my family.

A ruler bears the heavy burden of the kingdom on his shoulders.

If he does not have a benevolent and moral heart, he is not fit to be a ruler.

I raised my arms and revolted,

not to vent the grudges and anger in my heart.

Not for future wealth, status, might, or power.

It's because the citizens of my Great Liang

deserve a better ruler!

You say that I am not qualified to be the ruler.

Who does? Xiao Yuanqi?

At least, he previously went to battle for the kingdom.

At least he can separate right from wrong. His chest is filled with moral indignation!

If not because he saved those evidences,

who would know the truth of what happened in the capital before?

Right or wrong is just decided by a split-second decision.

Imperial Mother indeed made a mistake.

But what about Xiao Yuanqi, revolting and creating chaos?

He acted against the principles of heaven!

The Prince of Chang Lin will surely eliminate this rebel!

Let me say some honest words that Your Majesty does not want to hear.

If the Prince of Chang Lin wins and wants to ascend to the throne,

I do not mind that either.

If Your Majesty thinks that there are still heavenly principles and justice in this world

for the citizens of Great Liang,

Your Majesty!

Do what your Imperial Mother did.

Looks like you still need me to help you.

Do not move.

Your Majesty.

I came late.

Big Brother Pingjing...

Let us go.

- Senior Sect Brother Xun?
- In the battle with Donghai,

although Xiao Yuanqi was false, General Di was not.

I do not want to kill him.

You are Di Ming?

Sister Anru...

Do not move.

Brother Xun, let us go!



Your Highness! Your Highness, bad news!

Levels and levels of security...

Even if Xiao Pingjing has the ability to charge in here...

at most, he could only force his way to take him.

How could he have taken him in such a quiet manner?

- He timed it exactly when the Princess Consort...



Xiao Pingjing, you dare use my An'er?

They surely have not escaped far.

Taking Xiao Yuanshi with them, they surely cannot exit the city.

Good thing I...

have set up a last defense.

Senior Third Brother Zhu, we are in an urgent situation. No need for such formalities.


Noble guests, please come in.

Where is this?

Senior Sect Brother Xun surely can guess it.

This cannot be another pigeon hall, right?

Your Highness!

Your Highness! Informing Your Highness, Commander He sent a report.

They discovered the tracks of Xiao Yuanshi.

- Where is he?
- On the Qushui Bridge, in the southern part of the city.

The pigeon hall of Jinling...

Keep up!

Noble guest, please drink some tea.

Senior Third Brother. Senior Third Brother?

I have been waiting for you.

The Senior Third Brother knew that I was arriving?

The day before, there were some familiar-looking faces on the streets outside.

I thought that you had arranged for it.


- Let us go!
- Let us go!


Noble guest, this way.

- Senior Third Brother.
- Hurry and go.

Let us go.

Let us go.

This way.

Chang Lin Manor.

Let us hurry and go.

Let us go.


Let us move.

What is wrong?

Senior Sect Brother Xun, there is an ambush.


Pingjing, take His Majesty and leave first!

Senior Sect Brother Xun, be careful!

Be careful!

What to do? The front and back exits have been blocked. Are there any other paths?

Come with me.

Senior Sect Brother Xun, guard it well.

Do not worry. I will throw out anyone who comes in.

T-There are people here too!

Open the doors.

People outside, listen! I will kill anyone who comes in!

Pingjing, what are you looking for?

I opened it once, when I was eight.

I even got severely punished by my father for it.

I found it!

Pingjing, hurry up!


Senior Sect Brother Xun.

The door is open. Let us hurry and leave.

- Take His Majesty and leave. I will stay.
- Brother Xun.

If I do not block them here, none of us can leave this city. Take His Majesty and go.

Subject Xun.

Your Majesty, your safety is important. The safety of our Great Liang is more important.

General Yue will be attacking the city soon.

Hurry and go. Believe me. It will be easier for me to escape if I am alone. Quickly leave.

But how can we...

Your Majesty.

Senior Sect Brother Xun, take care.

Take good care of His Majesty.

Subject Xun?

- Hurry and go.
- Hurry! Go!

Subject Xun, take care!

Take care.

Let us go.

You all...are the warriors of my Great Liang.

Yet you listened to the words of a rebel,

and tried to kill the Emperor and revolt.

I do not want to see

the blood of my own brothers.

But if you all obstinately persist with what you are doing,

do not blame me...

for being impolite.

Your Highness, I already went in and searched. His Majesty is missing.

Who is "His Majesty"!

Xiao Yuanqi, you did not expect this, right?

Heaven's plans supersede our own. (T/N Chinese idiom, eqivalent to "man proposes, but heaven disposes".)

You still lost, despite being meticulous with your planning.

Right now, His Majesty is with the Chang Lin Army.

Very safe.

Xiao Pingjing is still in this manor.

A secret room.

I should have thought about it sooner.

I fear that what you should be thinking about is not that.

Because this place will be the end of the road for you.

End of the road?

Commander Xun,

should you not open your eyes wide and look at what situation you are in now!

As the personal bodyguard of His Majesty,

I swore to loyally serve His Majesty. What is there to fear about death!

I fear that your situation

is not better than mine.

The rescue army of the Prince of Chang Lin will soon break the city's defenses.

And this time...

you surely will lose.

Xiao Yuanqi, you lost not to a certain person,

but to the world's justice!

Commander Xun!

A ruler is a ruler. A subject is a subject.

You did not care about right or wrong, and just continuously followed the Imperial rule.

Do you not consider yourself a blind follower?

General Di Ming, as a mighty general,

you clearly know that a loyal subject will never serve two masters.

And you did not clarify the truth first,

and colluded with this traitor who had dealings with the foreign kingdom.

I fear that the grudging souls of those who died

in the ten prefectures of the eastern border will not let you all go.

- What do you mean?
- Commander Xun!

You have always boasted of being a top-ranked martial arts expert on the Langya chart.

Today, do you dare to have a duel with me?

The reason I stayed behind today...

is because of my uncle and Anru.

I am going to

end things with you here, on their behalf.

Commander Xun surely never expected

that he will lose to me, right?

Brothers! What are you still doing here?

The people upstairs have withdrawn! Hurry up and leave! Go quickly!

Go quickly! Hurry up and go! The army outside is closing in!

Leave quickly! Brothers, hurry up! Leave!

- Let us hurry and go!
- Let us go!

Hurry and leave!

General! General! Come on!

I do not know if by next year, the Langya Chart...

will have my name on it?

Xiao Yuanqi...

you are thinking too much.

Because a person that is about to die...

will never be on the chart.

I then want to see...

who really is the dead person...

who will not get onto the chart.

Your Highness, we found the secret room.

General Di, take him back to the palace.

The gates are open!

Come in! Come in!

Come in!


Attack! Attack! Attack!

What place is this?

Your Highness, if we go out from here,

we most probably will end up on the Changzhi Alley's western side.

Your Highness, this is the former Su Residence. It has been set aside for a long time.

Su Residence?

Mei Changsu...

Your Highness!

Your Highness! Your Highness...

Say it!

The city's defense has been broken. The Chang Lin Army has entered the city.

Even if the city walls have been breached,

do we still not have the palace walls?

The Prince of Chang Lin has ordered that surrendering soldiers will not be killed! The citizens will not be disturbed!

The surrendering soldiers will not be killed! The citizens will not be disturbed!

The surrendering soldiers will not be killed! The citizens will not be disturbed!

The surrendering soldiers will not be killed! The citizens will not be disturbed!

The surrendering soldiers will not be killed! The citizens will not be disturbed!

General Di Ming, you are a famous general of your generation.

Why do you not believe that Xiao Yuanqi

is a traitor who colluded with the foreign kingdom?

The "Golden Crow and Water Moon", even if you have never heard of it, (T/N mythical martial arts move.)

you saw it this time. Do you not want to know

who taught Xiao Yuanqi that move?

General Di Ming, I do not want to see that when you die,

you will still be a muddled person.

Put him down.

You all have gone through the doors of death, and followed me for so many years.

I instead led you men onto the wrong path.

Those ministers that I have secretly hidden

are still locked up in the back of the Patrol Guards' Office.

You all go look for them. Stay with them...

and you all might be able to save yourselves.

- General!
- General!

Go now.


- General, take care.
- Take care.

Hurry! Hurry! Everyone, retreat!



Where is Xun Feizhan?

Did I not tell you to bring him here, so we can meet Xiao Pingjing in battle together?

Were the words he spoke to me...

true or not?

It is already at this time.

What is the use of talking about that?

The victor becomes the king, and the loser is the bandit!

If I am successful today,

no one will care about what I have done before!


Someone minds...

At the very least, I do.

Rebel armies on the top of the walls, listen!

The Prince of Chang Lin has ordered that we will not kill any soldiers that surrender!

You all have reached the end of the road!

Are you not going to hurry and lay down your weapons, open the gates, and surrender?

Open the gates and surrender!

Open the gates and surrender!

Open the gates and surrender!

His Majesty is here! Welcome His Majesty!

- Respectfully greeting Your Majesty!
- Respectfully greeting Your Majesty!

Long live, Your Majesty!

Long live Your Majesty!

Long live Your Majesty!

Long live Your Majesty!

Long live Your Majesty!

♫ 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 ♫
