In the Spring and Autumn Periods, King Ping of Chu was probed by an official to kill the teacher of the prince, Wu She as well as his son Wu Zixu. The prince told Wu Zixu that night, so the next morning when he was asked to return to the capital, he refused angrily, “If the prince didn’t tell me the truth, I will be in the inescapable.”
