宋江怒殺閻婆惜

宋江為人好義,得知梁山好漢劫生辰綱事發,把官兵追捕告知晁蓋等人。閻婆惜(惜姣)家貧賣身葬父,宋江立之為妾,讓惜姣與其母居於「烏龍院」,惜姣年少難與宋江交好。幕僚張文遠因借茶而與惜姣相識,惜姣因他年青識趣與其私通。晁蓋等因得宋江之助順利回轉梁山,便遣劉唐送來書信與五十兩黃金酬謝。宋江卻不慎遺下書函,被惜姣拾得。惜姣藉機要脅宋江立下休書允其自主改嫁,宋江無奈應允。惜姣竟不罷休,欲持書函往官府告發宋江。宋江激憤難平,盛怒下把閻惜姣殺死。宋江殺人起禍只得投奔梁山。閻惜姣死後,念念不忘張文遠,幻化人形探望。豈知張文遠始亂終棄,惜姣不忿為愛付出至此竟無所得,遂索其性命同到陰間做一對鬼鴛鴦。

Meanwhile, Chao and the others, returning to Mount Liang safe due to Song’s help, send Liu Tang to deliver a letter and five taels of gold to show their gratitude. Song, however, neglects to safeguard the letter.Yandiscovers the letter and uses it to blackmail Song for a divorce. Still dissatisfied despite his compliance,Yan decides to take the letter to the government. In indignation, Song kills the woman. Now a murderer, he finds himself compelled to join the outlaws on Mount Liang.
