...and such a body,

only to wither away like any

insensible plant.

How many time have we been here?

We've been coming since we were little,

I can't tell how many times.

When do you feel happy?

When we came here to play as children,

we were very happy,

but since growing up

I've never seen real happiness in you.

You think too much.

I think from now on, it's better if don't study the sword with

Master Wu anymore.

This has nothing to do with him.

I'm just fond of thinking too much.

If I don't practice the sword,

I wouldn't know what to do with my time.

It's late. We should be going.

You go home.

Very well.

Xia Ying, I've waited a long time for you.

This pearl has been kept by my family.

What do you think of it?


I've brought it as a present for you.

I can't accept such a valuable gift!

It's nothing.

I also want you to move out of

this back alley

...and live a life of luxury.

Master Xu,

I'm only a serving maid.

I cannot hope to elevate myself with you.

Please let me go.

Xu Shi.

Let her go.

Who are you to step in?

We may be students under the same master,

but we don't have to cross swords here.

True. I'll reckon with you tomorrow.

Now, Nie Zheng versus Xu Shi.


Xu Shi.

Our match today...

is meant for practice only.

But right from the very beginning attacked without first saluting.

That is already beyond the pale.

How can you go so far as to

...backstab after the outcome

has been decided?

Such dastardly behavior unacceptable even towards

one's enemies,

let alone a fellow student.

Henceforth, you are no longer my disciple.

Nie Zheng.

The Middle Realm has always used

bronze weapons,

but Wu and Yue forge steel from iron,


...Kings Fu Ca and Gou Jian to

gain supremacy.
