Zhuge Liang said: "Zhang He is a distinguished generalof Cao Cao. Only Zhang Fei could defeat him." Thisirritated veteran Huang Zhong. Huang shouted: "Advi-sor has looked down upon me. I will get his head off andoffer it to you." Zhuge Liang prodded Huang again by saying, "Though you are valiant, I am afraid you are not Zhang He's match because you are too old." WhenHuang 'Zhong heard this, his gray hair angrily stood on end. He said, "Old as I am, I am able to open two bows and am full of vitality." Huang went down and got a big sword off the rack and performed with it. He took two hard bows off the wall and pulled them broken. ThenZhuge Liang said: "If you go, whom would you like to be your assistant?" Huang Zhong replied, "Veteran Yan Yan. If the two of us can not defeat Zhang He, my gray-haired head is yours."
