Sneak attack! Chase them...


It is bad, boss!

Come on! I'll take you away!

Come on!

Hold me tight!

For the sake of our parents!

Spill our blood!

For the sake of our home!

Walk a million miles!

And kill the bandits of the desert!

To save the beauty!

They're back! They're back!

General is back!

We saved her halfway.

Her parents are dead.

Why disappeared?

Someone's knocking the door?

Open the door.




Can't we just send him to an inn?


We're brothers.

And it's New Year.


He's back.

You're all here.

Miss Xiaowei.

It's so cold outside.

- Drink some hot water.

Have some osmanthus flower cakes!

Okay, thank you.

Thanks, Miss Xiaowei.

Brother Gao Xiang, drink while it's hot.

So attentive.

Who is this man?


Right there!



General, are you okay?

Why didn't you wait for us?


Have you gone mad?

Hundreds of gangsters here!

You said

we're all brothers who'd die together.

We must go home all alive!

I'll never lead you.

Brother Yong.

- General...

- Brother Yong.


You won't!

A soldier like you can't go as you wish!

This is desertion...

and the penalty is death!



Get away!

Leave me!

Everybody, take care.

- General...

- Brother Yong.

Have you contacted him?


Don't you want him to come back?

Of course I do!

Perhaps he can catch the guy...

who tore the man's heart out.

I just never thought...

he'd been dejected like this.

We're married already.

How about letting him stay?

Do you know?

I've been worried about you every day.

Be careful.

Not woken up yet?


Let me get you some tea.

Peirong. I haven't slept a wink for days.

Peirong... I've drunk too much!

Brother Yong.

You've woken up.



I'm going!

Brother Yong.

Hey brother,

It's New Year's Eve. At least stay...

with us for the...

No, thanks!

Brother Yong, just wait a moment.

I've got something to return to you.

Brother Yong, your sword.

Wish you good luck.

Waiter, any spare room?

Yes, sure...

Please pay a deposit

at the counter first, sir.

I'm leaving my horse here,

and you think I'll run away?

Okay, fine...

Waiter, don't forget to look

after my horse!

I will, I guarantee. Rest assured!

Please pay a deposit first, sir.

I'm leaving my horse here...

and you think I'll run away?

Take care of my horse!

I will!

Take care, sir. Happy new year!

Let's go.

Waiter, it's a big inn;

nothing more than that.

Not even a slice of meat?

They've all gone home for new year,

so has the chef.

Let it be...any wine?

Sure...Ill take it now!

A bottle of best spring liquor!

Sir, it's just sold out!

She's taken all the rest.

Sir, please choose others.

Come here. Be my guest!



Waiter, one more bottle!


No need. Here.

I'll give this pair of jade pendants

to who you love!

How're you doing?

Where have you been the last two years?

You're here just to ask...

such dull questions?

I suspect if there's a demon in our house.
