When East Heretic Wong Yerk See trained his last disciple, Ching Ying, in RETURN OF THE CONDOR HEROES, he seemed more notably patient and indulgent with her than he ever was towards his first generation of students (Chan Yeun Fung, Mui Chiu Fung, Kuk Ling Fung, Luk Sing Fung, Mo Min Fung, and Fung Mak Fung). The younger Wong Yerk See was often highly critical of his students (as he was of all people whom he felt were beneath him), and when two them betrayed him, all of them suffered his wrath. In later years, however, an older and lonelier Wong Yerk See regretted the callousness with which he had treated his students. He had loved them as if they were his own children, and in his old age, he felt pain at their loss. Is this the reason why Wong Yerk See was so especially patient and kind toward Ching Ying? Did he finally realize that his unreasonable standards had cost him the people he'd loved, and that Ching Ying represented his last chance to make amends for his earlier mistakes?
