You need to control Yuan

I hope you'll accept


General Su led us to countless victories

Enemies have fallen under his sword

You really don't want to be Governor?

I seek the highest ideal in wushu

And I want to start my own school... I can teach others

When my wushu practice flourishes...

...I'll realize the true meaning of life

My other wish... to have a family with Ying...

...and live peaceful together

You and my little sister... a family?


I wish the two of you all the best!

You've been so kind

One day...

...I'll repay you

That's great!

Guests come to see my parents

I ask the guests to take a seat...

One more time!


A snake! At your feet!

You lied!

Look at you. A mother and still so


You don't pay any attention to us

You just practice wushu all day

Who doesn't pay attention to you?

Mother! Father! What about me?

Help! Save me!

What's going on?

I want to play

You two are parents...

...but act like crazy children



Little Feng

Give me a hug


Have you been good?

I have some news

Yuan is coming back for a visit

My brother is coming home?


After all these years...

...I knew he'd return one day

Ying, let's get out the best wine

We must celebrate

My son

Yuan is now a Governor

I suspect this is more than a homecoming

You must be cautious

Father, you worry too much

Are you still thinking of his real father?

Yuan never uttered a word about him

He knows why you killed his father

Not mentioned does not mean forgotten

You raised him and Ying as your own
