Yan Wushi was someone who had walked through mountains of corpses and seas of blood.

He did not believe that human nature was intrinsically good, nor did he believe that there would be anyone in this world who was truly benevolent and righteous, acting with others’ interests in mind but never asking for repayment.

One fine day, Shen Qiao, the sect leader of the foremost Taoist sect, Mount Xuandu, was challenged to a duel, and then fell from the steep cliffs.

At the time, Yan Wushi just happened to be passing by.

Seeing Shen Qiao, whose injuries were so severe that he was on the verge of death, he suddenly thought of a marvelous idea….

After a thousand autumns, who would remain unforgotten and immortal*?

CP: Insane Gong x Beautiful Taoist Shou

* My interpretation of the last two Chinese characters, are that they specifically refer to being eternal or immortal in the sense that they will be indelible and last forever in human records or memory (never be forgotten by history) – not that they are immortal i.e. will not die.
