Folks from the Post came to their rescue, and Lady Feng was very surprised to find her husband, Xu, to be one of the wounded soldiers. With his armour all torn and tattered. Xu was in a very confused state of mind. Lady Feng felt very sad yet hopeful, because if her husband's brother in arm. Nan Gong could survive, then, this person in front of her could surely be her husband! Xu started to attack Lady Feng with is sword, and Lady Feng was deeply distressed by the state her husband was in. It was almost daybreak, and the soldiers were still frantically charging at each other. People in the Post suspected that General Xu and his men were only phantoms.

There was fear that a plague might break out, and General Ji of the Ming army was ordered to station there to keep watch. Supernatural tall tales about Hungry Wolf Ravine spread out, and it was rumored that many strange incidents happened in town; and so all the folks were running away, In the ancient mansion where General Ji was posted, the housekeeper Old Jiang killed himself by jumping into the well.

The Human Lantern

Sheriff He was after lady Feng, and so he gave her an antique lantern as present. Recently, Sheriff He noticed there were a lot of cases of missing husbands, and all the husbands were surnamed Song. Postman Ma asked Li if she was interested in investing these cases, but Li suddenly had a strong desire to go to town to eat meat buns. The elegant Madam Nan Gong stopped over at the station for the night. She told Lady Feng that, ten years ago, she was abandoned by her husband Han who was a general, Lady Feng was shocked as Han was a colleague of her husband's and they died together in the battlefield a lone time ago. Madam Nan Gong took out Han's last letter to her which said he had become a deserter and had fallen in love with someone else, and asked her not wait for him. She always dreamed of her husband coming back to her with remorse. With a hunch, she came to the Post, and she believed that her husband was waiting for her somewhere... Sheriff He found out that the last missing husband surnamed Song was last seen at the Little Spring Bun Shop. When he went there, the Sheriff could not find the lady owner of the shop, Zhou, but saw a pile of bones covered with blood. They realized that the shop was selling buns with human flesh! Zhou went to the Post and told Lady Feng a story from her past... Years ago, Zhou and Han concealed their names and identities and came to the ancient town of Crescent Moon, and opened a shop selling buns. She was deeply in love with him, but he was always troubled by his conscience as a deserter. He wanted to turn himself in, but she was unwilling to let him go and killed him by accident. At that time, Han had changed his name to Song. That was why she hated all men named Song. She wanted to kill them all, and then she minced their meat to make buns. Everyone was shocked. A green light was shimmering from the lantern in lady Feng's room. That was the lantern made by Zhou, with Han's crown bone from his skull as the lantern base, and his skin as the shade.

Black River Monster

A monk from Japan called Kurokawa Kawado crossed the sea to Chian and came to the Dragon Gate Post. He thanked the folks in town for letting him stay in the Post, and told his story. Somehow, Lady Feng and Shi both thought there was a sense of blood-thirstness and malevolence in the monk. One day, a lady from a noble family came to see the monk with a lot of gifts, and the rumor came out that after going through some religious ritual with the monk, infertile women would get pregnant. The news spread out very quickly and many couples came to seek audience from the monk. Since Lady Feng was suspicious, she asked the Kawado to leave the Post. He left some money and departed. Li had a dream of supplicating the monk together with Postman Ma for a child, and as soon as she woke up, she went to look for the monk. Postman Ma found Li wandering in town with a look that seemed lost, and Li said she had to find Kawado and ask him to take her as a disciple. Postman Ma told Shi about this, and Shi immediately went to town to look for Kawado. Shi found Kawado sitting in meditation in his room; but somewhere in town, over the roofs of the houses, the shadow of the monk was seen flying around. Lady Feng came and announced that Kawado was a monster who knew how to let his spirit travel out of his body. She then poured blood of a black dog onto Kawado, whose body was sitting there in meditation; and that would stop the spirit from returning to the body. Across town, Kawado's spirit came into Li's room, and she almost lost her virginity under hypnotism. Fortunately, Shi and Postman arrived to save her just in time. Kawado slipped away and went back to this room. But he (the spirit) could not return to his body, and so he was outraged, and became very violent. Everybody joined the fight, and Shi eventually killed the evil spirit. At that very moment, the body of the monster in the room exploded into smithereens. People finally realized that the monster raped the women who came to him for fertility rituals and made them conceive.
