To be a wuxia character is to live a life of constant peril, but there are relatively good, easy times too..."Salad Days," if you will.
I think the Salad Days of Gwok Jing and Wong Yung during their forty-something years together was immediately after they first met North Beggar Hung 7 Gung. They were young, had no immediate worries, and met a powerful and friendly martial arts expert who was willing to teach them his martial arts skills and share with them his great accumulated wulin wisdom. It also helped that Hung 7 Gung was an amusing and entertaining dude to hang around with, and supplied a great deal of amusement to go with the martial arts and wulin wisdom.
Those must have been good days.
