|An Old Friend|
Shao Jun has returned to her first home, the Forbidden City. The Empress, a friend from Shao Jun's Concubine days, has requested a meeting. Shao Jun must infiltrate the Tigers' stronghold, move across the city through the gardens and ascend the tower to be reunited with her old friend.
- Jun: I was born into captivity. One of many Concubines. When the Brotherhood came for us, I saw freedom, I saw a future. Now it is up to me to offer hope for those who see none. When Zhang Yong and Qiu Ju are dead, when I have the box, I will deliver that. Now my journey has come full circle, my past has returned to aid my future. My old friend, once a Concubine like me is now Empress, and she's risking her life to help me. She knows where to find Zhang Yong, but I fear she and the Concubines are in grave danger. If the Templars suspect they are helping me, they will kill them in the blink of an eye.
Shao Jun entered a building and noticed a concubine in trouble.
- Concubine 1: No. Please...
- Jun: These Concubines are in danger. I need to kill the guards protecting them. Give the girls a chance to get out of here...
Shao Jun killed the guard and saved the concubine.
- Concubine 1: Please, help the others.
After saving the first concubine, Shao Jun found another being held captive.
- Concubine 2: No. Please, no!
Shao Jun rescued the concubine.
- Concubine 2: I am forever grateful.
Shao Jun reached the gardens, finding a third concubine in danger.
- Concubine 3: No!
Shao Jun eliminated the guard and freed the concubine.
- Concubine 3: Bless you.
After saving the concubines, Shao Jun reached the garden bridges, overhearing guards talking.
- Guard 1: Have you seen the intruder?
- Guard 2: They won't get far.
- Guard 3: Wang Yangming is dead, the Assassin is all alone.
- Guard 4: She'd be a fool to continue to fight us now.
Navigating the gardens, Shao Jun reached Empress Zhang's quarters.
- Jun: Your Highness, it is good to see you again. What is wrong?
The Empress was joined by Qiu Ju and Zhang Yong.
- Empress: I'm sorry...
Shao Jun made it to Empress Zhang, who was in the company of the remaining Tigers.
