=Ever Night 2==Episode 3=Why is there not a leaf left? Not this tree, but the one in front of the cave of little Qi Shan. Yeah. Little Qi Shan, here we come. Where are you? It is thousands of metres from Mount Wa Cave to the foot of the mountain. I’m afraid that Master Qi Shan can’t hear you. Mountain Owner Mo. The Daughter of Light. Mountain Owner Mo. Young master. I feel a little tired and want to have a rest in the carriage. Then you don’t forget to tuck yourself in. The scenery over there is very nice, how about going for a walk? This year, how have you been? Very good. I have been writing, cultivating and upgraded my Stage. What about you? Same here. I have been writing, cultivating and upgraded my Stage. When have you upgraded your Stage.? Congratulations! I don’t think you really want to know how I upgraded my Stage.. It’s too tragic. In Mochi Garden, I was shocked to hear that you were going to fight with Xia Hou. You didn’t think I would win. In the Badlands, I believed that you could certainly defeat Xia Hou. It’s just a matter of time. How could you have so much faith in me? Ye Hongyu said people as shameless as you usually have lived a long time. I don’t like to hear such slandering like this. Even if she’s now High Priest of Jurisdiction now, if I’m pushed to the corner, I still dare to go to her trouble. How did it feel to defeat Xia Hou? I felt a moment of ecstasy, then exhausted and disconsolate, then finally I just felt calm. But now, I feel some regrets. Why? Sangsang got seriously ill for helping me. I won, but I also paid the most painful price. Don’t lose your heart. Sangsang is gonna get better. Thank you. Thank you as well. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have learned the Tao of Talismans so quickly. This year, the improvement of my cultivation is all because of you. What were you excited about? Do you know her well? Didn’t you think I could see that you just kept saying hello to her? I… I may… not be the best one for you. If I think it’s suitable, then it is. If I don’t think it’s suitable, even the one is the king, then it’s not suitable. Do you want more grass for your performance? What are you looking at? They haven’t seen each other for a long time, and wanted to be alone for a while. What? Do you want to peek? I know I’ve been making mistakes all the time. I hope you could forgive me. Tao-Addict was right that you are the most shameless person in the world. You have admitted the mistake faster than anyone else and has been so sincere that it’s like someone else did it wrong, and you were the innocent one. You’re here for the Yulan Festival, are you? Why don’t we go up the mountain to find little Qi Shan together? How could it be so easy to visit Master Qi Shan? There are many people in this world who want to visit Master Qi Shan. This Yulan Festival is also the first time for the master to get out in decades. So Rotten-wood Temple has made the rules that only the cultivator who has cracked the three Go Games could visit Master Qi Shan. Cracking three Go Games? It’s gonna be too late. Sangsang can’t wait. Three Go Games of Mount Wa, it’s the rule. I wonder if Mountain Owner would like to come with us. Shanshan is willing to escort the Daughter of Light. Would you stop looking at me like that? Do you know how many people on Mount Wa want to see you? It’s only because the walls of the carriage are very thick, otherwise the walls would have been burned out by those looks. And you have to get used to this kind of thing in the future. Are there really so many people looking at me? Seldom have such a look been on me, no, never have. Since I was young, I have not been good-looking. Young master said the first two years he just picked me up, whether being given broth or rice soup, I’ve never grown up. He’s holding me like holding a little mouse. Although he made me alive later, he couldn’t make me look good. I was just like the autumn cabbage in the vegetable field which was too late to be picked. Even when I put on my new clothes during the Spring Festival, I didn’t look energetic. Young master had laughed at me that whether he put me in the vegetable field or in the coal kiln, no one could find me. He’s right. I’m the little maid who is most insignificant. When I was a kid, in Wei City, once I walked home from the butcher shop, dragging a leg of lamb weighing 17 pounds. On the way, no one helped me. It’s not because the people in Wei City were not enthusiastic, it’s just because they did not see me at all. Later, it was the same when we got to the capital. Young master and I have lived in the House of Calligraphy for two years, and I’ve bought noodles almost every morning, but the uncle who sells hot and sour noodle soup at the entrance of the Lin Forty-Seven Alley still forget who I am. Young master, he has been good-looking and sweet since he was a child, therefore, he is particularly likable. No matter General Ma in Wei City, Aunt Jane, or the Sage, they all like him. As long as we’re together, everyone’s watching him. In fact, this is good and I’m used to standing behind him. Anyway, I don’t like people staring at me. Sangsang, you are the most insignificant little maid in the world. Even if no one will notice you, but you and Ning Que only have each other in mind. Then at least, he’ll be looking at you. At least, in the eyes of Mr. Thirteen, you are the most beautiful one, Sangsang. I feel the same way. # I met you # # At a dewy dawn # # The happiness of seeing you # # Grows from the bottom of my heart # # One glance means forever # # The autumn breeze on the lake # # The shadows you left at the aisle # # I use the songs and poems # # To tell you my heart # # Mochi is raining # # I am with my books # # Red walls with white snow # Sister Book-Addict, I haven’t seen you for a long time. Why are you here? On the occasion of the Yulan Festival and Master Qi Shan will meet guests, how could I not come? People all yearn for Master Qi Shan who can answer questions in the heart. It’s not worth asking questions in the cave for your own things. Just now, I saw you get off that big black carriage in a low spirit. Couldn’t you feel the pain of not getting what you want? You’re wrong. I want him to have a good life more than I want to be with him.=Lu Chenjia, the Princess of Yuelun State=I’m very satisfied
=Lu Chenjia, the Princess of Yuelun State=to meet him again after all these things. However, I’ve never seen him again. Within the long time, no one can predict everything. Maybe one day, your meeting will happen all of a sudden. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next year. You could choose to wait or move on. Don’t forget that you have flowers which would bloom and fade, and you can still have the joy of flowers. # The frost # # The rain # You like young master, do you? # How can I forget # # The look of you in silence # But now, you can’t. # The wind # # The dust # # The rain under sky # # And you’re not yet back # # I always look for you # You could wait till I die. # Even years go by # # I will never change my heart # # I will wait for you # # Hoping the wind will bring # # The words that you said # # Like you # Do you want to know what I said to Lady Shanshan? No. No. Not at all. Not at all. No, not at all. Absolutely not. What did you say? A lot. Master. The disciple of the Academy, Ning Que, is climbing Mount Wa to visit Master Qi Shan at the command of teacher, the Sage. Even the disciple of the Academy has to obey the rules. Is that what the Sage teaches his students? What are the rules? You can’t cross the bridge until you crack the final phase of my Go Game. Master. Rules are dead while people are alive. Do you think so? People can’t live
=Ascetic in Yellow Clothes=unless following the rules. What if I don’t? Has Mr. Thirteen thought that he is capable of transcending all the rules of the world? Looks like he’s not going to let me pass. If you want to visit Master, you have to follow the rules of Rotten-wood Temple. Get in. If you can’t crack the final phase of my Go Game, you’ll never get past Huyue Ravine. I just want to visit Master Qi Shan. I just want to save Sangsang. Master, don’t make me do this. Your acting is sure to have cold-blooded and overbearing style which is the legacy of Ke Haoran. But I have to keep the rules. I just need Master to back down one step. I will not. Don’t blame me, Master. Young master. This master is a very powerful master of formation. The stream, the grass and the chessboard have already been the parts of his formation. We can’t walk across. Then I can’t… Young master. Since we are so anxious to see Master Qi Shan, then we should not use force which would waste our time. How about letting me try? You try? You are taught to play Go by Chen Pipi who you can’t defeat. How could you win him? Besides, it’s too painstaking to play Go which is not good for your health and drains your brain. Okay. I… I will play with you. Please come over. You need to get me over there. Get me over there. This game is ended. Master. That’s only one move, how could you say it’s the end of the game? This game is called “Chaos Ko” Chaos? What chaos? Did I ask you? Don’t affect my Sangsang’s mood. Sangsang, it’s all right. Just go ahead. This game is really interesting. It’s… There’s person who knows sky calculation in the world. Congratulations to the Daughter of Light for cracking the final phase of “Chaos Ko”. Congratulations to the Daughter of Light. Light will never die. Righteous path lasts forever. Congratulations to the Daughter of Light. Master, could we go now? Please The Daughter of Light and Mr. Thirteen have come to Mount Wa, I, Jiu Ping, feel honored.
=Master Dong Ming=Master Jiu Ping. I’ve heard that the Daughter of Light has defeated my unsuccessful younger brother with her sky calculation. Since you could figure out nature’s mystery, why do you need to figure out the mystery on the Go board? Mr. Thirteen, you may walk up the mountain with the Daughter of Light. Really? Thank you, Master. Sangsang, let’s go. We came to Mount Wa to seek medical advice, so we must follow the rules of mountain visiting. This game is still going to be played. Patients should get treated. Why do you have to come here for Go game? The patient always has the right to have two more candies. She wants to play, I can do nothing about it, either. I have spent my whole life trying to discard all desires and worries from my mind, but I can’t get rid of the internal drive for excellence. Actually, I’d love to play this game, too. She’s a little weak, so I hope you will not take it amiss, Master. Since she is ill, how could she stay in a draught? The Daughter of Light, which color do you want to choose? Black. Black? Can’t I choose black? In the first Go game of Mount Wa, the player must choose white. And the people who have gotten through the first Go game often have psychological implication that they would always win with choosing white. But I didn’t know why the Daughter of Light chose black without hesitation. Black moves first and has a big advantage. So I chose black. Black. I didn’t expect Rotten-wood Temple were so well prepared to tailor this windscreen for Sangsang. But how could they know Sangsang would come here to crack the Go game? Anyway, my Sangsang won’t be blown by the cold wind. May I ask if you learn Go with Master Song Qian? How is Mr. Song in the Academy? Young master, I remembered, among your schoolmate in the Academy, there seemed to be no student surnamed Song. Mr. Song? I remember it. Last year, when the little book boy handed out winter clothes, there seemed to be a man named Song Qian. Is it my fifth Brother you’re talking about, Master? Yes. Song Qian is the Kisei of South Jin, missing for many years, how could he appear in the Academy? What’s so strange about this? I’m going to the Academy. I’m going to the Academy. When I was a kid in the Taoist rite, I seem to have seen your portrait. What are you talking about? When you were a child, how could you possibly have seen Master’s portrait? He… He seems to be Master Dong Ming. Master Dong Ming? Master Dong Ming has passed away. Passed away? I’m Dong Ming. Master Dong Ming. I’ve never seen Master Dong Ming against Song Qian in my life. Today, I finally saw it with my own eyes, even if I die now, I would have no regrets. Since my younger brother has sealed up the Chaos Ko beside Huyue Ravine, then my Game should also be sealed. If any guests want to go up the mountain, don’t stop them. Why is this? Could there be a more perfect ending than playing a game with such an opponent as the last game of the life? Master Dong Ming. You won. It ends in a draw. Then why did the Master leave? Welcome the Chief Master of Sect Tian Qing, Great Master Bao Shu. Master Qu Ni. Is Ning Que here? Mr. Thirteen has won in the two Go Games of Mount Wa. I want to see him. My sage said
=Guan Hai, Sect Tian Qing==Guan Hai, Sect Tian Qing=that you are not allowed to see him.
=Guan Hai, Sect Tian Qing=I’m carrying the mission of the whole world. My sage has decided to set the Three Go Games of Mount Wa, so without his permission, no visitor to Rotten-wood Temple will be allowed to take action. I hope Great Master Bao Shu could think thrice before acting. In front of this thing, what’s the significance of the Three Go Games of Mount Wa? Before my sage retreated, he specially told me not to forget that it’s the Rotten-wood Temple of Mount Wa and it’s the Rotten-wood Temple of Master Qi Shan. If there are some unwise visitors, just show them where the way down the mountain is. Do you mean, my son, not let our people coming from Xuankong Temple go up the mountain? Move out of my way. Just attack me. Your little maid will die if you kill me. Try to threaten me again, then you’re gonna know if I dare to hit you. Master Qi Shan. Young master, is he little Qi Shan? Is he little Qi Shan that the Sage said? Well… I don’t know either. Are you little Qi Shan that the Sage said? Sangsang. Master Qi Shan. There are only three leaves left. Master, please help Sangsang. I am the pro disciple of the Sage, Mr. Thirteen of the Academy. My sage told me that you would save her. Who is the Sage? He… He is my teacher, the dean of the Academy. Isn’t he just an old man? We don’t need to talk about him. Let me ask you whether the Sage wants to save her, or you want to save her, or Sangsang wants to save herself. The Sage wants to save her, I want to save her and Sangsang wants to save herself. We all want to save her. Please save Sangsang, Master. In the Three Go Games of Mount Wa, you need to take life to play this one. Now Sangsang’s life is in your hands. What has this to do with you? I’m talking to this little girl. Master, young master and I have lived to today through great hardship, therefore, We couldn’t just die so easily. According to the rules, you have to finish a game, and the winner could be treated by me. Why are you so cruel, old man? She is like this, and you’re still following your crap rules. Let me tell you, you have to treat her today whether you like it or not. There are only two leaves left. Young master, I will play the game. Master Qi Shan, please. There’s only one leaf left. This Go piece is very cool, as if condensing a thousand years of cold. This leaf must not fall. I feel a strong fluctuation of original Qi from the nature. It’s weird and scary. Master, Master Bao Shu from Xuankong Temple is determined to see you. Master Qi Shan. Uncle, how are you? I’m fine. This is a pure and clean place, and yet you are flaunting yourself with a magic vessel, why don’t you put it away? Uncle. This is my old hut, and I’m here to entertain my two little friends. If nothing happens to you, just go down the hill. Uncle, we are here to watch the Go game. If you want to watch the game, you have to be a true gentleman. Sure. Why are they so verbose? Just play the game. Little girl, are you hungry? Before opening, just eat a pear firstly. Don’t eat any pear, come on, play the game. Young master, I’m hungry.
