Shao Lin fighter.

I should have guessed.

You're so tough.

Even Tu respects you.

You mustn't reveal my secrets.

Of course not, I hate Shih too.

Wasn't there a flute-player... | with a sword just now?

Who's he?

Unlike you.

Ho's useless.

But he looks like a martial artist.

He used to be one.

Quite famous too.

He was really good a year ago.

No one knew his name | People called him Zorro.

Mr. Zorro.

Please show us some moves | Please.

We know you're the best swordsman.

My Zorro hero.

...your presence flatters us, my Lord.

We have so many pretty girls.

Just choose.

Chiu Yueh.

But she's booked already.

Lead me in | Yes.

Chiu Yueh!

What's it?

Commander Shih wants you.


How dare you!

Zorro, catch!

Chiu Yueh.

Why don't we finish him too?

He's more painful alive.

The incident affected Zorro greatly.

He wouldn't use his sword again | But drinks and fools around.

All because of a woman.

What a waste of talent!

Talent cannot be wasted.

It should be put to use though.

Hey, fellows...

Don't move, you're wounded.

Thanks for saving my life.

Don't mention it. You're a brave man.

But I'm no good | Couldn't get Shih.

I'm so ashamed.

Shao Lin... | You're...

Will you change the water please?

Sure. know me?

I'm Yun Fei | Reverend Ta sent me to find you.

About Chang's map?

It's dangerous to talk here.

Can you walk?

Yes | Good.

How can I find Chang?

I have a meeting... | with him in five days.

How did you get caught?

I was to assassinate Shih | on behalf of Chang.

But I miscalculated.

Want to try again?

You got good plans?

You're my means of access to Shih.

I think I can handle him.

I'll do anything to help you | At any risk.

Thank you.

Here's the passcode to meet Chang.

Get him to cross the river | Our people will be waiting for you.
