However, without this bracelet, the fisher girl would be destined to loose her immortality and die. Hai deeply regretted this and he decided to try to bring her back to life. He eventually found an herb that could help people to repossess the living. Everyday he watered the herb with his own blood and in the end; the fisher girl regained her life.
