The Han emperor, who had lost his wife, finds Empress Yang in the magic mountain, and both
transform into Biyi, two birds with an inseparable wing.
From its powerful flight, Biyi ensures prosperity in the valley of Yunnan.
The villages of the valley lived in harmony until the day when mining and forestry companies
approached more and more, exploiting the lands and forests of the valley.
Biyi appeared as a furious majesty in the sky, but suddenly a Feihong drone hits him.
The two birds with one wing separated by the impact fell each in a village on either side of the
Salween. The villagers took care of them.
It was then that the birds transformed, and suddenly appeared the Han emperor who told the
chief of the village of Bei: "We can no longer protect the valley, the village that will reunite us
again with my sweet Yang, this village alone will be sure to have good harvests for years to
come. We’ll make our nest there. Like dragons you will progress across the river, going over each
other, without killing each other and for the return…”
In the village of Nan, Empress Yang appears to the head of the village and continues the
emperor’s speech: "… make yourselves wings. One of you will fly over the Salween alongside my
emperor, to me."
Each one becomes a bird with one wing and nestles in its nest.
The villagers make wings that they attach to their back, some stay close to the nest; others
throw themselves towards the river, one on top of the other.
Yang, levitating on a playing board, turns to an old man: You, Shouxing, star of longevity, it is you
who in this game lets the pieces live on the board in order to make your way to the nest, as in a
moving maze of 91 squares. So for me, find the way, Shouxing." "91 was the age of this young
Zaho Yan who ought to die at 19… I only had to swap the numbers in exchange for a good wine,"
said Shouxing, god of longevity.
The Han emperor, who is also levitating, turns to the other old man:
"You, Luxing, star of honour, you who served my ancestor, see how the pieces of the game
change status. Everything changes and grows like the child you carry; the pieces overlap, fit
together and intertwine as nature does. So go for me and complete the incomplete Luxing."
"Zhao Yan’s wine is so good that the jug is always half full", says Luxing, the god of abundance.
Shouxing plays with Luxing, under a mulberry tree.
Luxing says: "Bixi!" He takes Shouxing’s "token-bird", which, with a cup in hand, looked a little
drunk, and Luxing places it on his token.
Biyi comes out of the mulberry tree and flies away.
