I am super excited for this drama as it starts two reliable leads. Ariel Lin, a Taiwanese actress who was last seen in Old Boy last year but five years ago in a historical drama, Prince Lan Ling Wang. She is very charismatic.
The male lead is Vin Zhang or Zhang Bin Bin is equally charismatic that he often steal the scenes when he appears.
However, he had made several dramas, whether in the lead or as a supporting cast, and he tends to lose the girl in the end.
Hope this drama has a happy ending, but then again when there is a legend in the title it usually means the life and death of the character. 🙂
Be that as it may, I am looking forward to this drama which is coming this 8 January 2019. Please subbers, I beseech you to translate the episodes in English!
7 January 2019
It has been announced that this drama has been licenced to Viki. Yey, we are assured of subtitles. Rejoice.
Currently reviewing this drama in its raw form, did not understand a word but hey action speaks louder than word. LOL
Anyway, the drama started with the Xue manor being ransacked. A heavily pregnant woman and her older brother barely got away.
After running in some hazardous terrain from their pursuer, they got into a shack where the woman gave birth to a baby girl.
Their situation is rather grim. The woman said that it was karma. Her newly born daughter apparently is rather special. She will cause chaos unto herself and others when she has grown up because everyone would want her usefulness. The mother decided that it would be kinder to kill the baby but her brother stopped her and took the baby away from her.
The soldiers and their chasers are getting nearer so the man left with the child as the woman was bleeding profusely, too weak to move.
She dies as the soldiers got to her. Apparently, the woman was in some sort of relationship with her pursuer. He wanted her to be his concubine but she cheated on him.
Six years later, the Uncle Jiu and Hua Bu Qi lived a very sorry life. To make a living, they would busk as the girl sings like an angel.
Unfortunately, the other beggars were not happy that they were making money. Uncle Jiu was beaten up but luckily a dog, Aqua, (ah Huang) came to the rescue.
More years later, the girl is now a young lady, dressed in rags from head to toe. But she seemed the most cheerful and rather opinionated girl.
She has a good head for business. With her cart, she delivers and procures goods like wine, food, and clothes to be sold.
While pushing her cart, she got waylaid by a storyteller, who was recounting stories about a folk hero. Lian Yi Ke. He had his audience spellbound with his stories how Lian Yi Ke had a 10 arrows bow.. She can’t help but stay and listen.
Among the crowd was a gorgeous man, our lead, who was rather intrigued by the rag girl who corrected him when he said that the stories are exaggerations and lies.
The gorgeous man is Chen Yu who has a persona which dresses up in mask and ninja warrior attire. He becomes Lian Yi Ke, champion of the people. Chen Yu is newly arrived at this market town. He had been tasked by his father to look for his illegitimate daughter by Xue Fei. Of course, the purported daughter was Hua Bu Qi.
From the window of his room in an inn, he saw that bandits will be hijacking caravans of medicinal herbs which were to go to Feiyun.
As Lian Yi Ke, he was fighting with the bandits when the rag girl with her pushcart got into the middle of the fight. Lian Yi Ke ended up using her as a part weapon to high-kick the bandits as well as to protect her.
When the fight was over, he noticed the rag girl without her hood. She was a beautiful young lady. For a minute or two he just stared at her and fell in love (I think) She stared back and worshipped him for being her hero, Lian Yi Ke.
He rewarded her with a tael of silver. She wanted to be with him longer but he had to go.
Well, the first episode is already interesting with enough action that you can follow the story despite the lack of subtitle.
There is also sizzling chemistry between the leads. It is hard to believe that Ariel Lin is 36 while Vin Zhang is only 25. Ariel Lin is so well preserved. She gets more beautiful as she ages. Hope this drama is subbed soon. Come Viki!
Rag Girl Hua Bu Qi’s Uncle Jiu had been suffering from a chronic cough for years. He collapsed while trying to eat after getting really upset and worried at having found out that Hua Bu Qi had been flouting all his.instructions.
Time and again he had told her to stick to begging, always dress in rags and keep her face dirty or covered. She must not make herself stand out.
Hua Bu Qi cannot understand why she and her uncle needed to live like paupers, eat proceeds from begging alone when she can now make a living by buying and selling and everything else.
Rag Girl went to get the local doctor, who cannot do anything anymore for her seriously ill uncle. She begged the doctor.
He recommended that perhaps she should approach the kindly Master Lin of Youlon Manor. who is a master herbalist and pharmacist. Master Lin has apparently concocted a herbal pill that can ressurect someone from the dead.
Rag Girl wasted no time, she went to the manor and begged to see Master Lin. She was so desperate she even offered herself as part payment for the expensive herbal pill.
But the guard won’t let her into the manor.
The intrepid Rag Girl climbed up a wall to get in.
At that moment gorgeous male lead, Chen Yu, was with Master Lin.
Master Lin has previously found out that Chen Yu was a prince.
The Rag Girl without further ado threw herself prostrate in front of Master Lin. She then asked if she can have the herb that could make Ninth Uncle better.
They all looked at her as if she were mad.
She ended up being thrown out of the manor.
She was crying over her very ill uncle when she noticed the masked man at the doorway. He then threw a vial towards her. It was the rare herbal medicine she wanted. She quickly gave the meds to her uncle.
The masked man disappeared as fast as he had appeared when she went to look for him.
Her uncle got better, he had become the spritely man that he was. Her uncle told her that it was about time that they return to the capital. She was old enough to find out about her background.
They were preparing their stuff to bring to the capital when a large number of assailants came barging in into their hovel. They were determined to terminate both uncle and niece, despite of their order to keep the girl alive.
The ninth uncle was prepared to defend his niece as he promised his dying sister. Despite being really good in martial arts, in the end Zhu Hua, the ninth was defeated as there were just too many of the assassins.
But before he drew his last breath he left instructions to Hua Bu Q that she has to stay alive and not let those people get her. He also sadi that she should take the pottery and go to a pawn shop located in South Lane in the Capital City. She should look for Mr Zhu and hand him the pottery.
As Uncle Jiu was dying, Hua Bu Qi was running for her life and being chased by the black cloak people who attacked her uncle.
They were able to corner Hua Bu Qi by a cliff. She would rather die and join her uncle in death than captured by the black-clad people. So she jumped into the cliff but immediately rescued by Lian Yi Ke, who took her to a cave to rest and hide after he hurt the First Miss, the leader of the black cloak people, who has a crescent mark on her chest.
Hua Bu Qi was very upset and concerned that her uncle’s body might become dinner for wolves so she tried to get back to their shack.
She was stopped by Lian Yi Ke, who said that everyone was looking for her and if she does not want to get caught then she had to stay put in while he goes to find her uncle’s body.
She waited but she saw a couple of black-clad men heading towards the cave.
So she left and saw her dog Aqua (Ah Huang) who led her back to the Yaoling Manor.
She saw the madam of the house and with the help of Aqua, they put up a very sad and dramatic story that the madam instructed to the servants to give Hua Bu Qi a room to stay.
It was quite a nice room too.
At the dead of the night, she left the manor to meet up with Lian Yi Ke where he led her to the grave he made for her uncle.
She thanks Lian Yi Ke profusely and told him that she was heading to the capital soon with the creepy, playboy and arrogant Chen Yu, the exact opposite of Lian Yi Ke. Lian Yi Ke/Chen Yu does not know whether to be insulted or not.
Back at the manor, Hua Bu Qi had been given a maid’s uniform and now part of the household as a servant.
Master Lin found out the Hua Bu Qi was the missing daughter of the Seventh Prince, so from being a maid, she was immediately upgraded as part of the family with her own plush room.
Unfortunately for her, she felt like a prisoner as she was guarded by her own maids everywhere she goes.
One night she tried to sneak out but her maids were there. She told them that she wanted to go for a walk.
They then saw a commotion in the courtyard. A ninja warrior was surrounded by the manor guards.
The maids run away leaving Hua Bu Qi alone. She took her chance and left but she got caught up in the fight between the Ninja man (Long Qing in Ever NIght), Yun Lang and the manor guards.
A most unfortunate thing happened, Aqua protecting Hua Bu Qi was killed by Yun Lang. So sad.
Sorrowful, Hua Bu Qi buried Aqua, feeling that she is now completely all alone in the world.
Thinking that Yun Lang is dead, Hua Bu Qi went back to remove the mask from him to find out how he looked like, the man who killed Aqua.
He grabbed her and took her into one of the rooms in the Yeolong villa. He then asked her to help him bind his bleeding shoulder.
She got away from him pretending that she was complacent. She locked him in the room and then she started shouting for the guards saying that she’s found the thief.
She really made him miserable and told her that he will be back and she will pay.
With all the commotion, Hua Bu Qi quickly got away and ended up in her old shack she shared with her 9th Uncle.
She found a very pretty man tending to his injured servant.
As the guard from Yeolong was upon her, she made out that the thief was those inside the shack.
She then got away and ended up in the cave once again, where the pretty man, the young master of Mo, Mo Ruofei found her.
Mo Ruofei became interested in her being the purported illegitimate daughter of the Seventh Prince.
The promise of a golden bowl from Mo Ruofei convinced Hua Bu Qi to go back to the Yeolong Villa with him.
Master Lin had a conversation with Hua Bu Qi, where she told him that she is not suitable as his concubine.
Master Lin laughed. He told her the truth. That she was the daughter of the seventh Prince and he will be sending her to him once all the confusions are sorted out. In the meantime, he told her to stay at his villa, where she will be safe.
The Fourth Sister of the villas started instructing Hua Bu Qi in etiquettes and manners.
I love this episode. I love the action bit. The choreography is amazing and an absolute delight to see.
It was agreed that Mo Ruofei will Hua Bu Qi to the capital.
On their way, they were attacked by the Black Clad people, where Mo Ruofei was severely injured.
At the last minute, Lian Ki Ye appeared to the rescue and took Bu Qi away to escort near the capital.
If Bu Qi is the daughter of the seventh prince and Chen Yu is also the only son of the seventh prince then that would make Bu Qi Chen Yu’s half-sister?!!!
Thank goodness, it was made more clear in this episode that Chen Yu and Bu Qi are not blood related.
The Seventh prince (duke) first appeared in episode one where he was pursuing Xue Fei. He told her that she could have been his royal concubine but she won’t have it and instead had had to have an affair resulting to her pregnancy.
Xue Fei did say (Episode 1) that she did not matter to the seventh prince because all he wanted was the Bi YouTian (whatever that is?)
Hooray, Hua Bu Qi and Chen Yu can have a loving relationship if they wanted to but of course this is a drama so it would be during the halfway period before they find out.
At the moment, Chen Yu is fighting his attraction to Bu Qi but he just can’t help himself.
Poor Bu Qi was confined to the firewood warehouse by an extremely annoyed Jiangsheng, the close confidant/manservant of Mo Ruofei because he blamed her for the injury suffered by his master.
Ruo Fei was in bed being treated for a serious stomach stab/slash wound by his mother.
Ruo Fei had once told Hua Bu Qi that they have a history together.
Apparently, Ruo Fei’s father fell in love at first sight with Xue Fei. Xue Fei had such an impact to Master Mo that when his first child was born his wife was happy to have their child named after Xue Fei, that is how Mo Ruo Fei got his name. It might be possible that he and Bu Qi are siblings.
It doesn’t look as the mother is really happy about her husband’s attraction to Xue Fei because she was looking at Bu Qi rather suspiciously.
The news that Hua Bu Qi is now in the capital has reached the Seventh Prince. He called his concubine and Chen Yu to an audience. He told them that he plans to have Bu Qi live with them.
The main concubine agreed immediately but Chen Yu said ‘over his dead body’ because having Bu Qi in the manor is a mega-slap to his dead mother who suffered by the seventh prince obsession of Xue Fei and his ‘illegitimate daughter’
Despite moaning about Bu Qi, he can’t help himself checking up on her whether she was doing fine or not and later found out that she was far from ok
He saw Bu Qi left starved and locked in the dirty woodshed. She was so desperate she was about to eat a mouse but Lian Yi Ke hiding in the roof said that he would bring her fried chicken and he did.
Ruo Fei is getting better and the first thing he thought of was Bu Qi. Having found out that Bu Qi is being locked up as a prisoner, he got up to find her. He is so cute.
Bu Qi’s life is continuously being threatened by so many.
I love, love, love this drama.
Anyway, this episode is the revelation of Hua Bu Qi’s real father.
The Seventh Prince had come to meet Hua Bu Qi. Upon seeing her, he declared that she was his beloved missing daughter, the spitting image of XueFei.
Bu Qi was trying to reach some berries when she almost fell into the pond, but Chen Yu was just in time to fly down to save her.
He warned her not to even think of going to Duke’s Manor. He then pulled her belt and pushed her into the pond which his father had witnessed.
His father shouted at him. He dove into the pond to rescue Hua Bu Qi. He told her that was just a taster. If she goes to the manor, she is dead.
Anyway, seeing that there’ll be trouble if the Duke takes her back to his manor, he told her to stay at the Mo Manor for now.
Mo Ruofei liked her so much that he said she will be his true little sister. He would ask his mother to adopt her into the Mo family. She will be the Second sister of the family.
Unbeknown to them, Ruofei’s mother secretly hated the idea and hated Bu Qi even more.
Once upon a time, Lady Mo was the most beautiful woman in the capital.. She was so beautiful that many wanted to marry her, including a handsome young man, Mo Baixing, who came to beg her father her hand in marriage. He promised that he would only love her and would never take a concubine.
But XueFei happened.
Zhu Xua left Xue Fei for Mo Baixing to look after as the Duke had been after her.
Unfortunately, the married Mo Baising fell in love with Xue Fei. One drunken night, he forced himself to XueFei and made her pregnant.
Devastated and jealous RuoFei’s mother sent her back to the Xue Manor.
Seeing that her husband continued to be obsessed with XueFei, that he even named their precious baby after the woman, RuoFei’s mother instructed that Xue Manor should be burnt to the ground.
After the death of Xue Fei, Mo Baixing was a different man, he pined for Xue Fei and in front of his wife, while clutching his drawing of Xue Fei, he drew his last breath.
Now she instructed Uncle Mo to poison Hua Bu Qi.
There are four very influential ‘families’ who were at truce but behind the scene were fighting each other. At the moment, these families (Mo, Youlong, Mingyue, & Feiyun) were after Bu Qi.
The leader of Mingyue has ordered the massacre of Master Lin and his family (Youlong) but at the last minute he let off the son and daughter of Master Lin and tasked them to ensure Bu Qi’s good health. He knew that his own clan would like to kill Bu Qi.
Bu Qi had been getting tonic from the personal assistant(PA) of the Mo matriarch. The tonic regularly given to her is being poisoned. Thank goodness Bu Qi found out almost immediately when she unexpectedly saw the PA adding some powder to her tonic. Though she cannot really refuse the tonic as it was specially ordered by the Mo Matriarch to prepare for her, Bu Qi had become rather inventive in getting rid of it.
It was the nearing the New Year, Mo Ruo Fei showered Bu Qi with gifts including clothes, hair accessories, pieces of jewelry and rouges. I think this is a clue that Ruo Fei is really a girl because she was really excited about the present she brought in. She was telling Bu Qi the exact colours of the blushes and helping her with the hairpins. She was really excited more than Bu Qi. 🙂
The Mingyue family has twin assassins. One of them has infiltrated the Mo family in the guise of a new maid, Qing’er.
She arranged that the New Year fireworks that would go off from atop a totem pole where it would spew coins as bonuses for the servants had an added surprise to it. Qing’er and her couple of minions put some explosive balls with it. Bu Qi was given the honour of lighting the firecrackers and she almost died when she fell from the top of the totem. She was going to be finished off by the Qing’er if not for Ruo Fei being quick to get to Bu Qi.
Qing’er was quick witted. She pretended that she was so worried out Bu Qi that she rushed toward her immediately.
Ruo Fei found his mother telling Bu Qi to get better but Ruo Fei suspected that the accident was all his mother’s doing. He went to speak to his mother who confessed that she does not like Bu Qi deep down but she would not kill her.
Ruo Fei found Qing’er trying to put ointment behind her sore bruised elbow. Ruo Fei helped her to do it.
Upon hearing that Bu Qi was hurt, Chen Yu volunteered to visit her instead of his father. But the visit did not go well as they always end up fighting.
Chen Yu told her that she was so uncouth with no manners whatsoever.
Bu Qi was equally upset and told him to go to his mother for etiquette because he will not find it with her.
Chen Yu saw red that Bu Qi would even mention her. He grabbed her by the throat but Bu Qi said that it was not his fault that his father loved her mother more than anyone else.
To punish Bu Qi, he took her most precious begging bowl and then left much to the anger of Bu Qi.
She can’t be parted with her bowl as it was her only remember from her beloved Uncle Jiu and it would also reveal who she really was. With this in mind, she tried to get out of the Mo Manor to go to the Duke’s Pavilion to retrieve the bowl.
She climbed a wall but she fell and lost consciousness.
The Mo Manor was again in upheaval looking for Bu Qi.
Yun Lang of Feiyun, is a cousin of Ruo Fei. He came for a visit to evade his father who would skin him alive for his latest misdemeanor.
Yun Lang helped in the search of Bu Qi and found her by the bottom of a wall. He realised that she was the girl at Youlong who almost got him killed.
At last the Duke’s ill-health and emotional blackmail finally worked on Chen Yu. He agreed that Bu Qi could move in the pavilion.
Meanwhile, Bu Qi was well enough to meet her rescuer. She was surprised and angered to know that it was the man who killed Aqua, her beloved dog.
Ruo Fei left Bu Qi to Yun Lang not knowing about the history of the two.
Bu Qi told him that he killed her dog, he said he did not but she almost got him killed. They were having an almost flirtatious altercation that it ended with Yun Lang giving her kiss on her cheek and told her that he was going to marry her. Awww
Full of bravado, Bu Qi once again thought of a way to escape the Mo Manor and she did it by hiding under a rubbish cart, which was being wheeled out.
She asked a beggar girl to exchange clothes and then she proceeded to the pawn shop to seek Mr Zhu.
She managed to find the pawn shop but did not have much lack without her begging bowl.
Ruo Fei and Yun Lang finally found Bu Qi again and brought back to the Mo Manor.
She was then told to get clean up as she was being fetched by the Royal Concubine to go to the Duke’s Pavilion.
When she got to the pavilion, poor Bu Qi met the same fate as when she first got to Mo Manor. She was locked in a deserted storage room.
Chen Yu found out about it and was rather concerned. He said to the concubine that if anything happens to Bu Qi, she will answer to the Duke.
The concubine said that she was just taming Bu Qi and will let her out in a couple of days.
Bu Qi can’t be tamed, she found a way out by escaping through the roof. She would have hurt herself badly once again if Chen Yu did not catch her falling down.
He pretended that he was annoyed that she was in the pavilion and warned her not to get too comfortable because she will be out soon.
Bu Qu reassured him that she would not want to stay but she was rather hungry.
Chen Yu dismissed her request for food but secretly went to the palace’s kitchen to get the cook prepare snack for her, which she enjoyed tremendously.
The next day, she got her revenge with the servant who locked her in. She locked them back when they came to get her from the room.
Bu Qi finally met up with the duke who was so happy to see her.
Chen Yu said he will look after his little sister.
It was the lantern festival and the emperor was in attendance.
Everyone had put their money on Mingyue winning the lantern contest but Bu Qi was ever so loyal to Ruo Fei that she tried to sabotage the presentation of the Mingyue float by going on board and tried to interfere with the heavenly dancing.
What Bu Qi found out was that the main dancer was the first sister of Mingyu, the twin of Qing’er. The dancer was Qingwu and she was the leader fo the black-clad people who almost killed Bu Qi.
Qingwu threw Bu Qi out of the float and Chen Yu was there to save her.
In the end, Mingyu won the contest.
The Seventh Prince is getting worse especially after witnessing the song and dance of Qingwu during the lantern festival.
The seventh prince said that he was not too sure whether Xie Fei did die as they can’t find her body afterward.
Apparently, it was only Xie Fei and the prince knew of the song and dance she did to bid him au revoir before we went into battle on a moonlit night many years ago. Has Mingyue taken Xie Fie body?!!!
Apparently, Xie Fei is a man-magnet, even the leader of Mingyue fancied her rotten.
Qingwu was invited to dance and sing for the seventh prince to make him well as Chen Yu suspect that there is something in the song and dance that made his father worst.
Qingwu danced beautifully and enticingly but there was no effect to the prince, he remains poorly.
Qingwu was asked to stay for a few days within the 7th prince palace as the Chen Yu was investigating her as the assassin leader who wanted to kill Bu Qi.
Bu Qi tried to get the proof from Qingwu, She sneaked in while Qingwu was having a bath but she can’t really see clearly from she was hiding.
BuQi was rescued by Chen Yu from being found out by Qingwu.
Qingwu though suspected that it was Bu Qi who was spying on her and they ended up having a fight. Bu Qi slapped her, Qingwu kicked Bu Qi rather hard and fell a few steps.
Chen Yu found them with the noble concubine. Bu Qi was going to be punished but she pretended to faint. She pretended a couple more times and then she was really feeling faint which alarmed Chen Yu. The leads have oodles of chemistry. So cute.
Bu Qi finally found out that Lian Yi Ke is none other than Chen Yu.
They are both in bits knowing that they love each other more than brother and sister. Ariel Lin was so good as a broken-hearted girl.
After playing meek and gentle servant girl, Qing’er grabbed her chance and slashed Ruo Fei with a poison knife.
He is now on death’s door.
With Ruo Fei being gravely ill, this became the last straw for his mother. She invited Hua Bi Qi to pray in their family shrine.
Mother Mo with her devoted manservant served soup to Bu Qi.
Bu Qi knew the soup was poisoned so she made every excuse not to partake and to leave but they won’t let her until it became rather physical.
The forced fed the poisoned soup to Bu Qi.
They told her that she was an illegitimate daughter of Ruo Fei’s father.
Mo Ruo Fei was miraculously cured by the Youlong boy who came to live at Mo manor with his sister.
Ruo Fei was as good as new. He noticed his mother’s manservant coming out of Bu Qi’s room. There he found Bu Qi weakened and death-pain.
Ruo Fei was desolate. He really loved Bu Qi and taken her into his heart as a sister. He was so ashamed of what was done to Bu Qi by his mother, he could not even look at her. This scene was so heartrending. Crying time. The Youlong healer boy said that he could not do anything for Bu Qi anymore.
Bu Qi was all forgiving and said that she was happy Ruo Fei was her real brother,
It was just a matter of time for Bu Qi.
Yun Lang went to visit Bu Qi and found her spewing blood on the floor. This is another sad scene. He was holding Bu Qi tightly and he knew she was dying and there was no one on hand to help.
Until a servant came to feed Bu Qi a tablet.
The tablet made Bu Qi rest in peace! Is our Hua Bu Qi dead?
The maid was from Mr Zhu pawnshop. She quickly explained to Yun Lang that Bu Qi is safer ‘dead’ than remain at the Mo Manor.
Bu Qi ‘died’ she was not breathing, no pulse nor heartbeat as confirmed by their the manor’s physicians, including the Youlong brother.
Mo Ruofei was very upset but still has to cover his mother’s misdeed.
She went to the 7th Prince to relay the sad news which was overheard by a disbelieving Chen Yu. He handsomely rode his horse to the Mo Manor to see Bu Qi, who was already laid in a coffin. Chen Yu was absolutely heartbroken for someone who made Bu Qi’s life rather miserable at times.
The 7th Prince also came to view the body and asked for the second opinion that Bu Qi is indeed dead.
The Youlong sister examines Bu Qi by using acupuncture needles. She looked puzzles which were noticed by Chen Yu. But in the end, Youlong sister declared that Bu Qi is dead.
When everyone left with only Yun Lang remaining on a vigil, Youlong sister came to kneel by him. The Youlong sister, who has a massive crush on Yun Lang somehow managed to get the truth out of Yun Lang but she promised to keep it as a secret.
Bu Qi was buried. Ruo Fei was very sorry and ashamed.
Again Yun Lang stayed at the grave site.
But a ninja warrior gang came to disturb the peace.
The leader was the maid from Mr Zhu’s pawnshop.
They quickly took Bu Qi’s body.
Poor Chen Yu was desperately sad. He was crying his heart out, in front of his friend.
All of a sudden he wanted to see Bu Qi. They rode to the grave site, where Chen Yu saw the rabbit lantern, beloved by Bu Qi as it was given to her by Lian Yi Ke. He noticed that there was some writing underneath. He visibly cheered up as it was evidence that Bu Qi is not dead. He started digging the soil with his hands, his friend tried to stop him but it was no used.
The finally got to the tomb and opened Bu Qi’s coffin, which was empty.
Now more than ever he believes that his beloved Bu Qi is alive.
Well not quite alive, because the Mr Zhu’s people can’t revive Bu Qi. Doctors had come and go shaking their heads.
And then Mr Zhu went to look for another doctor, who was seeing a patient, a pregnant woman who was comatose, her baby was just too big to deliver. The doctor said that it was impossible but stopped by the arrival of a young good looking man, who took over from the doctor. He took some acupuncture needles and used them on the woman, he then carried her into a room and locked themselves from the others. From another medical pouch, he took a surgical knife and deliver a baby through Caesarian.
Mr Zhu was so impressed he begged the doctor to see Bu Qi but the doctor said he does not do visiting.
Mr Zhu went back to the manor and told them about the super-medicine man. There was nothing that can be done but to kidnap him and they did.
The doctor was rather reluctant at first but he saw his patient, a beautiful lifeless Bu Qi. He smiled and did his bit. Suddenly Bu Qi opened her eyes but went straight back to sleep.
The doctor was Dong Fang Shi, who said that Bu Qi is just now sleeping and will wake up soon.
They paid him but he retained the money and just looked at Bu Qi rather enigmatically.
