The emperor asked breaker to build a bridge to his hunting palace.
Breaker and his men wadded through the water and tried to place two piers in the middle of the river.
The river was so strong it swept the rocks and logs away - destroying the piers.
Breaker and is men built a dam to hold the water back while they built a second set piers. The river broke through the dam and swept the piers away.
The sun was setting and Breaker struggled to build a crutch for the old man. After Breaker gave the old man the crutch, he gave Breaker two pellets and told him t o drop them in the river where the piers should be.
When Breaker dropped the pellets in the water, the piers magically built themselves. Breaker learned that the old man was really an immortal.
