I'm serious, I'll shoot. I'm serious ...

I'm not afraid! You kill me!


Nobody move

Why aren't you looking at me?

Did you think that by raiding our supply cart,

the provisions would be all yours?

I'm giving you a chance today

[?] report yourselves to the imperial government


If we only had guns, we'd fight them

It'd still be suicide

Living like this, I'd rather die

Being a bandit is a dog's life; always on the run

Why don't we join the army?

In the army, we'd get paid

With the money we can buy food for our families

In the army we'd have weapons.

With weapons, no-one would dare attack us.

The village would have true peace

We are bandits

Would the government accept us?

The Kui Army is a big military power

They won't even bother with our little band

But ChenGong needs manpower

His Lu Army is constantly being harassed by the Kui Army

And he wants to be a major military power

If we side with him, it would be perfect timing

ErHu, grasp this opportunity

And let today's events, never happen again



We have to be the best!

In the past you were a Qing soldier

Now you want us to join the army?

You have no loyalty

Why should we trust you?

Swear a blood oath

Today, Pang ChingYun

Cao ErHu

Jiang WuYang

Swear an oath, to be blood brothers

[?] In each other we entrust, to save from danger

[?] Together in prosperity or difficulty

[?] If an outsider disrupts our brotherhood

[?] By our oath, they must die

[?] If a brother disrupts our brotherhood

[?] By our oath, they must die

[?] With the heaven and earth as our witness


[?] Together in one heart

He later told me,

He didn't believe in blood oaths

I asked what he did believe in

He said that he believed in Brother ErHu

and me

Wait, take these shoes
