    Default Minor inconsistency in Flying Fox?

    OUTER STORY OF THE FLYING FOX

    chp 3, the last time Xu Zheng (disciple of "Fist King" Ma Xingkong) is mentioned, he is OUT of the Shang family trap room (doesn't say where he went). However, first time Xu Jing is mentioned in chp 4, he is INSIDE the room (no information on how he came in). Doesn't make sense to me. Inconsistency?

    Later in the novel, Xu Zheng went out to search for Ma Chunhua. Ma Xingkong was still alive at that moment. But later on, when Xu found Chunhua, he cried out: "Master! You died such a horrible death!"

    How could he know his master died? He wasn't there when it happened.

    This was changed in the 3d edition, btw.

    yes, That might be yet another inconsistency about Xu Zheng, but I was talking about before, when he wasn't in the room, then suddenly he's in the room without explanation:

    Chp3, last mention of Xu Zheng: 马行空. . . 一瞥眼忽然不见了女
    儿, 又见徐铮也已不在厅中 ,微感愠臺:“如这等高手比武,一生中能有几次见得?
    少年人真不知好歹,一溜子就去谈情。日后成了夫妻,还 怕谈不够么?”

    Chp4, first mention of Xu Zheng: 这时厅中留着的是赵半山、胡斐、孙刚
    峰、吕小妹、王氏兄弟、马行空、 徐铮 、殷仲翔,一共九人
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    Rite, this was also changed in the 3d edition. The part of Xu Zheng being away in Chapter 3 is omitted.
