Ashes of Time
It's written in the Buddhist Cannon.
The flags are still, no wind blows...
It's the heart of men that's tumult!
Ashes of time
In the years to come...
I'll be given the nickname: Malicious West.
Well, everyone can be very malicious,
if you've ever been jealous of someone.
I don't care what others think of me.
It's just that I don't want others
to be happier than me.
But there are some people,
who're just too proud to be jealous.
In the early days of my martial
adventures I came to know a man.
He usually makes his appearance
in the east.
Maybe that's why in the years to come
people will call him Evil East.
The Five Goldens meet Star Jupitar
this year. There are famines everywhere.
Whenever there are famines,
people will have problems.
Problems means business for me.
I'm a native of White Camel Mountain.
My name's Ouyang Feng. I specialise in
solving problems for others.
Buddy, you must be around forty.
In forty years, you must have
come to hate someone...
...someone who'd wronged you.
someone you wanted... to kill
...yet didn't care...
...or you just didn't bother.
Well, murder can be a very
I have this friend who's
skilled in martial arts.
He's been a little low on money lately.
Pay a reasonable fee and he'll kill for you!
Think about it.
In fact, murder's no easy job.
One only risks it, because
Having left White Camel Mountain
I came to this desert and
started this killing business.
"Day 6, Insects awaken."
Every year around this time,
someone comes to drink with me.
A strange fellow.
He always comes from the east.
He's been coming here for several years.
He brought me a gift this time.
A new acquaintance, recently gave
me a bottle of wine.
The wine's called "A Happy Go-Lucky Life".
She said it takes away your
memory of the past.
Sounded weird to me...
What on earth is this wine?
She also said that mans biggest problem
is that he remembers.
How wonderful it'd be to forget the past.
Everyday would be a new beginning.
Isn't that great?
Well, this wine was meant for you.
You wouldn't mind sharing it, would you?
I couldn't bring myself
I didn't have a single drop of it.
But it did seem to work on Huang.
After drinking half a cup,
he started to lose his memory.
Do you recall our first meeting?
Well, why are you here then?
I don't remember.
Why are you staring at the cage?
Looks familiar to me.
He was very drunk.
He left very early next morning.
I could see that he was upset.
Maybe it had something to do with a woman.
A month later, Huang went into the mountain,
where one of his best friends lived.
He once stayed there for quite some time,
following his friends wedding.
Then one day, his friend suddenly
left home and never returned.
Since then, Huang also left and
hadn't returned until this time.
May I buy you a drink?
I just want water tonight.
Have we met before?
More that that... You've been my
very best friend.
But not anymore now.
What are you doing here?
A new acquaintance recently gave
me a bottle of wine.
She said it takes away your memory
of the past.
I had some and found it really worked.
Want to try some?
Do you know the difference between
drinking wine and water?
The more wine you drink, the warmer you'll
get. Water will only make you feel cold.
Will I find you here again?
I've sworn that, if I ever run into this
person again, I'll kill him.
I failed to do that, because the last time
I met him, I had almost gone blind.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
