The Sword
(Ming jian)

by Patrick TAM

Like diamonds, swords cari sometimes be cursed. Such is the famous sword known as “Chi Mud”. When swordsmaster Wah acquires the cursed sword, he is advised to destroy it before it destroys him. Yet Wah ignores the advice. He lives withdrawn from the rest of the world and does not think young swordsmen could come and challenge him. Lee is one of them. He has even killed another challenger in a single combat. Chance has it that he rescues a young girl from the hands of a professional killer. Within a few days, Lee and the girl become friends. Bur she leaves him in a fury when Lee meets his former girlfriend Yen, now Lien Kwan’s wife. Lee falls into killer Chan’s trap, but Madame Hsuen, Wah’s former mistress, saves his life. When hearing that Ying, Wah’s daughter, has been kidnapped, Lee sets off to rescue her and finds out she’s the girl he’s already saved once. Although he is in love with Wah’s daughter, Lee stills wants to challenge the master. During the fight, Wah is injured, but Lien Kwan’s hitman finishes him off so that Lee will get charged with murder. While Ying is about to seek revenge, Yen is killed. By the time Ying discovers his mistake, Lee is in great danger. Together, they manage to overcome the treacherous Lien Kwan. Ying leaves and Lee throws the cursed sword into a ravine.
