Episode 20

[My Everlasting Bride]
[You're the reason I keep going.]
[Episode 20]
[Jiangzhou Hu Residence]
Looks like you've suffered outside.
I missed you so much.
I'm back now.
I'm glad you're back.
Nie Zhen is not dead.
He has his own plans.
Young Marshal.
Liu Xiu.
Do you believe in fate?
It doesn't matter
whether I believe in it or not.
But I believe more
in taking matters into our own hands.
Young Marshal.
You really want
to take a chance like that?
Put a bullet into the magazine,
lock it with your thumb,
and rotate it with a force of 12 newtons.
Two seconds later, it's loaded.
The magazine at this moment
must be the one you preselected.
Although the chances seem
to be one in six,
in reality,
it's 100 percent.
I never take risks.
I only use the information gap to win.
So you're right
about taking matters into our own hands.
So you know how to use a gun?
How come I didn't know that?
I don't like guns,
but I know how to use them.
What I need is information.
That's all we have.
- The thing I entrusted you
- Don't worry, Young Marshal.
I'll protect Young Madam with my life.
Be sure to make it.
Say something!
Young Marshal
will be fine.
Liu Xiu.
Is this how you protect him?
But as you know, orders are orders.
He ordered me to protect you.
Isn't it all the same?
Isn't it the same
as putting himself in a dead end?
I'm sure Young Marshal
will survive.
[Yuzhou Prison]
I'll give you one last chance.
Tell me who you are.
I really escaped from Jiangzhou.
I worked as a jeweler
for the Hu family in Jiangzhou.
No matter how many times you ask,
that's my only answer.
Then why did you come to Yuzhou?
Let me tell you the truth.
I owed a lot of debts.
But when I ran away,
I brought a lot of jewelry with me.
If you're willing
to spare my life,
I'll give you half of it.
Are you trying to bribe me
with these little benefits?
All of it.
I can give you all of it.
As long as you spare my life,
I'll work for you.
Can we make a deal?
♪Loneliness sealed away♪
(Nie Zhen.)
(I know you're still alive)
(and working on a dangerous plan.)
(I write in my diary.)
(Unsure where to send it)
(and when)
(it will reach you.)
(But I know that day will come.)
(This is what you promised me.)
♪Fear not when love runs over♪
♪Loved too much turns the heart a demon♪
(I've arrived at the Hu family.)
(I've met with my father)
(and got settled.)
(Liu Xiu is in charge of my safety.)
(I know why you left)
(the most trusted guy with me.)
(I'll make you feel at ease.)
(Everything is fine in the Hu family.)
(I'm waiting for you)
(to come back and be with me.)
♪Letting go of what has not left♪
I really don't know
about Nie Zhen's plan.
I have plenty of time
to wait for you to tell me.
I've said everything I know.
Why do you always favor her?
I've witnessed what she's done.
You may have witnessed it.
But I experienced it firsthand.
She called me out of the Shen family
with the purpose of killing Nie Zhen.
She already had a clue back then.
I held a gun against Young Marshal.
If she really got into Nie Manor
in order to harm you,
what's the point of killing Nie Zhen?
It's just a cover-up.
You're truly confused, aren't you?
She thought you were dead.
Who's she trying to fool?
I have a feeling
that everything is gonna end soon.
Xiaodie won't come back to save you.
It's not her.
There's someone else who cares about you?
It's Young Marshal.
You're praying for a dead man
to save you?
Didn't you die once before as well?
Also in the river.
