On the contrary, women of the Western Regions would rather stand against the fate. They follow their husbands to battle fields in armors, they fight valiantly alongside their beloveds. They are warriors and heroines. And you, Fêng-chien, you are just like them, a heroine fighting your fate!

  • Chung Tien: When I was alone, I had this strange feeling... I thought that, he was constantly looking at me. Was he really looking at me? I'm not sure, because his pretty eyes are blind.
