” Princess Silver ” Episode 29 Even if you kill me today, I won’t let you go. But if I die, there’ll be no one in this world… who will treat you sincerely. I lost my family since young. Our master took me in… and I went through the most
cruel training together with you. There were so many days and nights… where we relied on each other. We’ve spent the
toughest time together. I thought that I’m
different from others. You once told me that I’m
your most trusted person. Because of that, all these years, no matter what you asked me to do, I did all of them willingly.
Because I believe that… I’m very important to you. But recently,
you’ve been disappointing me… -with the task that you are given.
-That’s because I’m afraid. I’m afraid to see you falling
deeper and deeper for Rong Le. I’m afraid that she’ll
one day harm you. I don’t wish to see you suffer
from the bone piercing hurt again. I don’t wish to see you
suffer from any harm. I don’t want you
to be tortured by hate. Even for our master, I won’t give him any excuses
for him to hurt you. The pain that you’ve
suffered in the past… should be repaid by all the
best things in the world. But now, I want to have more. Do you mean Rong Le? She is not worth it. She was once betrayed by her family. And she was used by
the people she trusted. But she is still so kind and generous. She is different from me and you. That’s because she’s not hurt enough. If everything is
taken away from her… and she can only survive by
fighting in blood and sweat, I don’t believe that she can still
keep her hands clean. So, I won’t turn her into another you. We have the same enemy. All these years, we have the same goal. So, everything that you did today… is not only for me. It’s for yourself as well. Because you want this revenge too. Hen Xiang. I don’t want to kill the person
that you want to. And I won’t let you kill her either. I’ll disappoint you sooner or later. Will you betray me? The feelings and loyalty… that you’ve mentioned… are just something very shallow. You are no longer my match. I’ve never wanted
to become your match. I just want to try my best… to help you with everything
within my power. You constantly remind me
about revenge. But she… has always given me the light.Where am I?Why am I here?Why are you laughing? I’m just laughing at
my own foolishness. I’ve always wanted to protect you. I never thought that you
will be malicious towards me. Chen Yu. What do you want from me? I won’t hurt you. My goal is just
The Book of Mountains and Rivers. So, you are here for the book as well. Looks like you are not the
real descendant of Qin. You are indeed very smart.
A hint is all you need. I’m not Chen Yu. And I’m not a descendant of Qin. My only purpose in Northern Realm… is to get my hand on this almighty,
remarkable book. And here I am,
seeing you as my friend… and trying my best to protect you. Looks like you don’t need it at all. You used your hand
in exchange for my life. You gave me the zither music score… and give me refuge in
Moon Embrace Teahouse. The sincerity that you had shown me
is something so rare. Actually, I’ve already considered you
as my close friend. But this book is with Prince Li now. It’s too hard to get it from him. I don’t have any other choices. This is the only way. The only way. Who are you working for? You are neither the people of
Northern Realm… nor the people of Western Qi. Stop asking me.
I won’t tell you. You have no choice because
you are under someone’s thumb. Tell me. Maybe I can be of help. Look at yourself.
How can you help me? You are stuck in this situation today
because of that book too, right? Although our identities are different, our fate is very similar. Both of us are here for
The Book of Mountains and Rivers. But I’m doing it on
my own free will… while you were forced to do it.
And you were betrayed by others. All pawns will be sacrificed
sooner or later. You are of no exception. Maybe you are right. Now, no matter it’s to be… controlled by others
in the name of mission… or to live our lives freely, we have no say in it. At least I’ll fight
for my right to choose. I won’t be a string puppet forever. I’ll remember… what you say today. I’ve already informed Prince Li. As long as he is willing
to give me the book, I’ll release you at once. You’ve calculated wrongly. He won’t come. Onlooker sees most of the game. You are too blind to it
because you are a part of it… but I see it very clearly. Although Fu Chou is very
gentle and attentive to you, he bears a deep grudge. He might not derail his plan for you. Prince Li on the other hand… is very cold towards you, but he’s a sentimental
and righteous man. He won’t even hesitate
to sacrifice himself for you. Let alone The Book of
Mountains and Rivers. What if he doesn’t come? He will. Ever since he came back to Zhongshan, he had saved you repeatedly. He still loves you.
Even the blind can see it. And you still love him too. But you are not willing to admit it. That’s right. All of you can see it very clearly. That’s why all of you
have a reason to use me. And you said that you
have no other choices. Fine. You have your own standing. I understand. I was once like you. But Chen Yu, no matter what’s your reasoning is, you’ve used me. And it’s a fact that
you’ve betrayed me. We can’t be friends anymore. The nation’s affair
is not a child’s play. Where did Wu You go? Father, I… You want to be sent to royal tomb? Please calm down. A report from southern region came. It’s an emergency about an outbreak
of rebellion in Qingzhou. Wu You had gone back
to take care of it. This is bad.
Come back quickly, Wu You. I can’t cover up for you much longer. What did you say? -I…
-Your Majesty. Your Majesty, Prince Fan Yang
has requested to meet you. -Let him in.
-Yes, Your Majesty. You may leave first. Yes, father. Uncle. Greetings, Your Majesty. Be at ease. Xuan Ming. You’ll be in charge of
the war against Wei. Yes, Your Majesty. But Wu You is respected… for his brilliance in leading an army. He’s way better in the
art of war than me. Wu You… is indeed bold and talented. But he has always opposed to
the war against Wei. He won’t agree to go into war with me. I plan to… bring along Fu Chou with me. And I’ll leave the crown prince behind
to take care of the country. You want to bring General Fu away… and leave behind crown prince. Are you trying to separate the two? Although Fu Chou… looks very gentle,
respectful and cautious, he is a cunning person. He’s like a tiger or wolf. He used the banquet as an excuse… to give a girl to the crown prince. He must have wanted to use the
crown prince’s status to his benefit. So, it’s better to
keep him by my side. If he so much as blinks wrongly, I can punish him at once. You are indeed thorough
and far-sighted. You have my admiration. Prince Li, long time no see. How are you? The thing that you want is here. Release her. Why are you here? No need to care about me. Instead of using my life as leverage
to harm another innocent, I rather you just kill me. I told you before. I can see clearly the feelings
you have for each other. Prince Li, do you know that… Man Yao wasn’t married
to General Fu willingly? She did it… because Emperor of Qi
threatened her… with the lives of everyone. You are the only one
she has every loved. Stop the nonsense! Is it nonsense? You clearly haven’t
forgotten about him. You’ll be depressed whenever
you think of him. She says all of these… because she wants you to give
the book to her quickly. That’s right. I’m here for
The Book of Mountains and Rivers. But what I said is true. While you were away from Zhongshan, she often went to
the teahouse alone… to spend most her time there. She’ll sit at the place where both
of you first play chess together. And she’ll look at the
plants in the garden… while reminiscing the time
you had together. Sometimes, she’ll be brought to tears. Man Yao. Is she telling the truth? Chen Yu. You were indeed my best friend. I’ll kill her if you take
one more step forward! She saved your life before. Is this how you’ll repay her? Who sent you? What’s your purpose here besides
The Book of Mountains and Rivers? -Cut the nonsense.
-Stop it! If you want to save her life,
hand me the book. Or else, I’ll jump off from here
together with her. I’ll be dead anyway if I fail
my mission. I rather die with her. -At least I’ll have a companion.
-Alright! -I’ll give it to you.
-No! I’m the one who found the book.
You have no rights to give it to her. You want to die, right?
If you’re not afraid, -why should I be?
-Man Yao! Do you know how much effort
I put to get this book? Because of this book, I had used you. And because of this book,
you had tricked me. But you can’t let this book… fall to the wrong hands
just because of me. Are you done yet? You don’t believe what
I said just now, right? I’ll proof it to you now. Mistress. Although you no longer
treat me as your friend, I still want to give you
a word of advice. Flee to a faraway place with him. Because in this world, nobody else
will treat you better than he does. Farewell. Can you come up by yourself? Is she telling the truth just now? This is not the time for you to think
about it! Your life is at risk here! Don’t let go of your hand! Is it true? Yes! I think of you every day and
I can’t forget about you! Satisfied? I don’t want distance
but I stayed away from you. I want to do it but I can’t. I just want to watch you
in this cold world. Everybody sees very clearly… the feelings we have for each other. But we ourselves… are too afraid to be sure of it. Man Yao. I’ve always been
confident and arrogant. But when it comes to you, I’m afraid that it’s just
an unrequited love. I’m sorry. I’ve made you suffer. Aren’t I the one who had
put you into troubles? Their target is me. You are dragged into it… because I’ve fallen in love with you. It’s my fault… for putting you into constant danger. Man Yao, remember this. It’s my choice… to like you. And it’s my decision… to hand over the book. You did nothing wrong. Chen Yu is right. You should flee to a
faraway place with me. Leave Fu Chou. I can only protect you well… when you are by my side. I’ll make sure that
no one will harm you… and use you every again. I can give you an unrestrained life. I can give you the freedom you crave. Unrestrained life. Freedom. Southern fringe has spring
all year round. It’s brimming with flowers. You’ll like it there. But I… Do you know… how happy I am when… I saw this chess piece? You’ve kept it by your side
all these while. It’s a proof that you’ve
never forgotten about me. Finally, we are together again. Man Yao. As long as you are willing
to come with me, nothing in this world
will be a problem for me. Are you willing to come with me? I’m willing. But… But I made a promise with Fu Chou. We have a one-year marriage contract. I don’t want to break my promise. I owe him an explanation. Don’t worry. I’ll wait at the hunting ground
for you at eight morning tomorrow. If you are not there, I’ll settle this personally
with Fu Chou. Are you alright, Rong Le? You are hurt. Looks like you’ve known
what had happened to me. This is not my doing. I know. When I heard that you were gone,
I had searched for you everywhere. I wanted to save you.
But I never thought that… someone will beat me to it. You should know that… no matter how many people
are there to stop me, I won’t leave you alone
to fend for yourself. I believe you. But now, there’s no point for you
to tell me that anymore. I know. Chen Yu is the perpetrator. I will send someone to kill her. This is between me and Chen Yu.
Don’t stick your hands into it. You are Chen Yu’s saviour. Not only
she didn’t repay your kindness, she had tricked and hurt you.
People like her… is not worthy for you to
plead on her behalf. Chen Yu had indeed
hurt and tricked me. But now, she’s not the only one
who had tricked and used me. If you want her dead just
because she did this, it’ll be more danger for you. In your heart, I’m the same as Chen Yu? No, it’s not the same. At least, you’ve treated
Chen Yu sincerely… while you’ve treated me coldly
and you’re always on your guard. Forget it. Since you are back, have some rest. Fu Chou. I don’t want you and me to
turn out like me and Chen Yu. How about we stop it here? Such a cruel thing for you to say. You want to leave me for him, right? During our wedding night, I already
saw your handwritten divorce paper. You hid it in the wedding suit… so that one day, I can choose the answer that you want
from the two choices you gave me. You’ve never cared about the
two choices that I gave you. Because in your heart, you already have the answer, right? You had given me
your true love before. And I’m thankful for it. But so much had happened. There’s no
turning back for us anymore. How can you act as if
nothing had happened? I don’t care if you think
that I’m insensible, that I behave capriciously… or even think that… I’m a villain who goes back
on my word. From now on, I won’t allow you to leave me again. When I searched for you
everywhere like a lunatic, I swore to myself. Our fate is still not over… as long as our promise is still valid. From now on, I won’t let you leave me. Chang Jian. General Fu. Zhongshan is quite chaotic recently. Take good care of Lady Rong Le. If she takes a step outside
of this manor… or if she has another wound on her, I’ll have your head. Yes, General Fu. -Lady Rong Le.
-Fu Chou! I’ve already sent someone to bring
Ling Yue and Xiao Ke here. If you dare leave this manor
without permission, I can’t guarantee their safety. -Princess Rong Le.
-Xiao Sha. Have you found a way to go out? Just now, General Fu has given
his order to tighten the security. I’ve checked. Only Tranquil Garden and
the front yard are heavily guarded. Not so much for the rest of the place. Maybe at night,
when they change their shift, we might be able to find an opening. Alright. At first, I want to end this
in good terms. He’s the one who forces me to do this. No matter what, we have to get to the
hunting ground at eight tomorrow. Roger that. Prince Li. Where is Man Yao? Did something happen to her? As soon as she went back to the
manor yesterday, she was grounded. She has asked me to tell you that
we’ll have to plan this out first. ” General’s Manor ” Who dares barge into
the General’s Manor? Prince Li. General Fu. I thought that you’ll
rein yourself in after… your introspection
in the southern fringe. I never thought that you’ll still
act with such arrogance. This is the third time
you barged into my manor. Looks like you don’t have any respects
for this General of Defence. Cut the nonsense.
Give me Man Yao. I don’t have a Miss Man Yao here. Rong Le is the
Elder Princess of Western Qi. She is the legal wife of the
General of Defence. If you want to see her,
I’ll have to say sorry. She is not feeling well today. She’s not fit for a visitor. Princess! Princess! Princess. Prince Li is here. Didn’t I tell you to pass on
my message to him? I’ve failed my duty. Prince Li is… confronting General Fu
in the front yard now. Don’t think of using the
imperial order to threaten me. You know I have no care for it. Fu Chou. You talked about imperial order
and status repeatedly. Is there anything else
between both of you… besides that? What a foolish question it is. We have the mutual affection
of husband and wife, the time we spent together
for half a year… and more than 200 nights of
sleeping together between us. Not to mention that these are false, but even if they are true, so what? Do you think I’m like the others… who will give up just because of that? Fu Chou, you are a somebody. It doesn’t matter that
you lie to me with those. But isn’t it ridiculous that
you’re trying to kid yourself? You’ve had her once
and then you lost her. You did all of those by yourself. Now, she’s been married
to me for months. And you want to take her back now? Who is being more ridiculous? Looks like you are set on
keeping her to yourself. Don’t blame me for being rude then. I’ve always been
courteous towards you. But you’ve become even rude to me. You barged into my manor several times
and treated me as a nobody. I can tolerate it, but… I’m already at my limit. This is the real Fu Chou. Today, let us fight like a real man. I’m curious to see how
capable you are as well. -Princess Rong Le.
-Princess Rong Le. What’s wrong, Princess? Did the poison in her body
attack her again? Tell me. You are without cure for too long. Without the cure to suppress it, the poison has eaten through your
organs and has gone into your blood. If it attacks again,
you’ll faint if it’s mild. And you’ll die… if it’s serious. How much time… do I have? Maximum half a year and
minimum three months. Aren’t there any other ways
to neutralise the poison? This is a complex poison.
Without the prescription, it’s hard for me to create the cure. But I’ll try my best to find a way
to neutralise the poison. Worst comes to worst…There was once…when we were so happy together.Although we haven’t known each other
for long, I already miss you so.Do you dare to…I’m set on standing against fate. But why do I have… no control on my life? -I’ll get the cure form His Majesty.
-Xiao Sha! Princess. I don’t want to beg him. And don’t tell anybody… about this either.After all of those hardships,
we are no longer young.I’m doomed to live
in loneliness forever.It’s bad but I can’t help it.Are you suffering just like me?
Are in turmoil as well?After all the boom and bust,
I have lost all hope.-Princess.
-Princess Rong Le. Princess. Man Yao. Why? Do you know how dangerous it was? You can’t hurt him. He is my husband. He set you up for marriage, he used you, put you in constant danger and now,
he imprisoned you… and took away your freedom. You still see him as your husband? This is between me and him. It’s best if you stay out of it. You barged into my manor today… with an army… and you almost hurt my wife. I don’t think it’ll do you any good… if His Majesty knows about it. Since I dare come here, I won’t be afraid of that. Man Yao. Did something happen? It’s nothing. Are you still going to leave with me? No. Fu Chou. What did you do to her? He didn’t do anything to me. I’m the one who are not
willing to leave this manor. Although he had made some mistake,
he is sincere towards me. I’m not willing to betray him. Do you think I’ll believe you? Man Yao. I know clearly… what kind of a person you are
and what kind of a life you want. It’s fine if you are not willing… to leave with me. But I want to hear the truth. I don’t want to ruin my reputation… and I’m not willing give up
my identity as the princess. Because I think that… you are not worth it. Prince Li, please leave. I don’t want to see you again. I’m not worth it. Man Yao. If you really mean it… Of course I mean it. I’m at fault for today’s incident. It’s my fault for not making things
clear between us before this. I’ve troubled you to
come here for nothing. If His Majesty wants to blame someone, I’ll take full responsibility on it. No need. I’ve always borne the consequences
of my own action. No need trouble yourself,
Lady Rong Le. That’s right. I’m the wife of General Fu. Please keep firmly in mind. From now on,
if someone else threatens my life, please remember… to mind your own business. My husband will save me. Mind my own business. I’ll make sure to keep it in mind. Why did you say that? Are you telling the truth
or are you lying? I lied. Everything that you did… is indeed for the good
of Zongzheng Wu You. You are worried that I’ll gather up
the officials and generals… to exert pressure on His Majesty
together with the crown prince. Of course, you can take
full responsibility for it. And for His Majesty, he’ll be glad to punish you alone… given that I’m not hurt. You know clearly that… his attack won’t kill me. He’ll only hurt me. Of course, you don’t care about whether
I’ll be hurt or not. The only thing that
you care about is, if I’m hurt, others will say that Zongzheng Wu You
has no regards for the law, that he barged into the manor
fully armed to take you by force. And I almost lost my life
while protecting my wife. If this spreads among the soldiers, someone will be indignant
with the unfair treatment. And by that time, His Majesty won’t be
able to protect him… in case there’s a mutiny
among the troops. Although you’ve thought ahead for him, have you ever thought that what if
he didn’t manage to stop his attack? It’s very possible that
you’ll die at his hand. He won’t do it. You are right about
everything but one. It’s very possible that he knows
about your sinister intentions. If he wants to kill you, he won’t bring along normal guards
but The Hidden Ones instead. You didn’t give your best
and so was he. Or else, how could he stop
his attack so quickly? He came to find me today… just to make sure that… I’m fine. If that’s the case, why don’t you leave with him?
It’s possible that… he’ll be able to give you the
happiness and freedom… that you crave for. Freedom. What freedom? My life is on other’s hands. My craving is just a wishful thinking. I’m just a heavy burden. What did you say? Fu Chou, don’t put your hopes in me. I can’t give you… what you want. You are back, Wu You. Where did you go, Wu You? What happened, Wu You? What’s wrong with Wu You? What happened?
Why is he so angry? It’s Man Yao again, right? -Let me confront her.
-It’s better if you don’t. -Why not?
-You still don’t get it after so long? She is the one Prince Li loves.
No matter what she did, nobody can touch her without
Prince Li’s permission. What should we do then? Are we going to sit here and watch
while he dwells in depression? Your Highness, Eunuch Chen is here. Your Highness, His Majesty has
summoned Prince Li to the palace. Alright. Wu You!
Eunuch Chen is here. Father must have had
something for you. Today, I… Leng Yan, ask Agent Wu to investigate
on these people in secret. -Yes, Your Highness.
-Let’s go. Wu You! These are the names of
the generals in the army. Looks like Wu You has found a way
to take down with Fu Chou. Wei has always been
a festering wound for me. All these years, we’ve been
in a constant war with them. Many had sacrificed themselves for us. A few years ago, we had the chance to
defeat them once and for all. But we were defeated because
of the crown prince’s mistake. Once this war starts, it’ll take a huge toll on both of
the countries’ armed forces. For the past years, both countries had
been making preparations for this war. We trained up soldiers
and hoarded up food. A few days ago, our scout from the frontier pass
had reported that Wei… is gathering up their troops and
is readying themselves for war. So, this war between us is inevitable. In order to have the upper hand, I’ve decided to attack them first. And this time,
I’ll lead the troops myself.
