[My Everlasting Bride]
[I can't keep up the charade anymore.]
[Episode 15]
Do I not look good enough?
Mistress Yan,
put your clothes back on.
I'm trying to read.
Well, I don't exist in your book.
I'm here.
Right before you.
Quit acting like you don't want this.
You are no different
from your father.
Even if you drugged me as you did Xiaodie,
I would still not play along.
Because, in all honesty,
it kind of makes me sick.
Don't say that wench's name to me.
Let me tell you something.
If you don't do as I say,
I'll gladly pull out of the deal
and have
your beloved Xiaodie killed.
You have no plans to let her off.
But neither she nor I can die just yet.
Just like my father.
Killing a maid
isn't going to change anything.
Push your luck if you dare.
I hold the whip hand here.
I'll be back tonight.
If you have made up your mind
by then,
make it crystal clear.
That's the last batch.
Are you sure
the entire house has been combed?
Not a single piece of paper was left out.
But that
might not be enough.
(I believe those three Division Commanders
have the rest of the documents.)
(I've got to find another way)
(to make them hand over the papers.)
You seem bummed.
I'm fine.
Time is of the essence.
Our trapped comrades
can't hold on much longer.
Those documents
are the only way to free them.
(Don't worry. I'll get it handled.)
(It's only been a short while,)
(but it's something I will never forget.)
I'm back.
Have some tea.
What happened with Nie Zhen
is it true?
on my trip to Jiangzhou,
I managed to track down your family.
(Eighteen years ago,)
(the Hu family of Jiangzhou
were persecuted.)
(The family was falling apart.)
(And to protect his only daughter Hu Die)
(who was only two then from harm,)
(Mr. Hu had his most trusted stableman)
(take her, and that's you, to Hongzhou.)
(The city was in chaos at the time.)
[Chang Mei Ju, Local Specialties]
(The stableman couldn't)
(make it to the home
of a close acquaintance.)
(Having been wounded,)
(he had no choice but to leave you
to a family living nearby.)
(It turned out to be
none other than the Shen family.)
(Perhaps it was the severe injury,)
(or perhaps the stableman
wanted to keep you out of trouble,)
(the secret of your true identity)
(died with him.)
Hu Die
It's a lovely name.
And don't you worry.
There's no mistake.
Mr. Hu recognized you
when he saw your photo.
And besides,
the butterfly-shaped birthmark
on your wrist
speaks for itself.
Second Young Master,
thank you.
You don't have to thank me.
I thought it was something worth doing.
And I also know that
what I've done
isn't enough for me
to gain an advantage over Nie Zhen.
My bad.
I shouldn't have brought it up.
It's getting late,
Second Young Master.
Why don't we
call it a night and get some rest?
I'll make you
a hearty meal tomorrow.
your family
is the wealthiest family
in Jiangzhou today.
Hongzhou is facing a period of unrest.
I hope
you'll return to Jiangzhou.
Go back to your home.
It's the safest place
you could possibly be.
It's war-free in the South.
And you'll be able
to get out of the mess you're in.
If I'm going back,
I'm going to bring Nie Zhen with me.
it's not time yet.
Is he really worth it?
Second Young Master,
I'm grateful
for everything you've done for me,
and for your help in finding my family.
But Nie Zhen
I see my future with him.
I assume you've come to your senses?
I thought
it was pretty obvious.
Young Marshal,
with time,
you will get over that someone
and let go of the past.
Before we do it,
I want to know
everything there is to know.
What's your game this time?
I am now
completely at your mercy.
I'm all yours.
But I hate variables.
I don't do well not knowing.
By the way,
your perfume
smells uniquely wonderful.
That's more like it.
Everything that I do,
I do it for the Hongzhou Society.
The Hongzhou Society?
Why have I never heard of it?
Your father took a lot
of the crown jewels of the Society.
He had his people
lock them away on the quiet.
Couldn't be bothered to ask the location.
This Mr. Zhao guy that I work for,
he's the head of the Society.
He needed clues to rescue the captives.
Having been saved by him
and as someone
who hated your father's guts,
I clicked with him right away.
I was able to bring down your family
and get you back
all because of him.
So all those papers
you've removed in the past month,
it's to locate the place where
those people are being held, right?
Anyway, get your mind off it.
I don't care about any of that stuff.
You can't stop us even if you do.
Then your doings
I'm simply returning the favor.
You mean Mr. Zhao's favor?
He saved my life.
It's only natural that I should help him.
But I'm fixated on getting revenge.
Mr. Zhao let your father live,
which is fine with me.
Mr. Zhao is planning
on turning Hongzhou upside down
as soon as he frees his associates
to liberate the people
and reshuffle the order of the city.
forget Xiaodie.
I won't kill her.
Be mine,
won't you?
Sounds like a plan.
Fall for me, Zhen.
Three days
is all it takes.
What a pity.
I can't keep up the charade anymore.
Ms. Yan,
next time
don't take any man's word for it.
Especially what shady people like me say.
