I thought that I can enjoy another great story by Lin Jia Cheng after Mei Gong Qing but was quite disappointed on how the story turns out to be. The introductory episode was recorded in male and female voices but the actual book was only recorded in female voice. After I have completed the audiobook, I saw a comment on Hamster that the male lead is a wall flower. How I wish that I have seen Hamster’s comment before investing my time to listen to this. It started off great which I normally like strong character FL. I also start to wonder who is the actual ML? I was hoping for Chu Wang but FL ended up with Wu Gong Zi and then Wu Gong Zi died stupidly knowing that he could not change the fact. Guess that is the problem with the people in ancient time. Loyalty to the end without questioning. I am glad I live in the modern world. I don’t think I will ever survive if I ever time travel to the ancient time.
FL – Sun Le. 2 MLs – Wu Gong Zi (a scholar) and Chu Wang. The story started with FL waking in a body of 10 year old girl with an ugly face. FL has black patches on her face, uneven skin colour, thin hair because she was poisoned when she was in her mother’s womb. FL saved Wu Gong Zi and in return he took her in as his 18th concubine (not his bedmate) but more towards providing her a roof over her head and food to eat. Since FL came from the modern world, she realised that her body was very weak hence started to use Xi Gong to help to improve her health. When she first entered the Wu Gong Zi’s residence, she was being bullied by the rest of the concubines. In the nearby woods she found some roots that she normally cooked to fill her hunger. Throughout times, she indirectly managed to detoxify the poison from her body. She also turned into a beauty that Wu Gong Zi started to take notice of her.
FL lives in the warring states period. Although FL is a very clever girl but because of her lack of confidence, she always hide herself and keep a low profile and doesn’t bring attention to herself.
Chu Wang is a boy that she met in the woods and since Chu Wang is an orphan, FL took him in and treated him as her brother. In actual fact, Chu Wang is actually a prince from another Country. He eventually went home to take back the throne. Chu Wang has once said to FL that he will marry her if she turns prettier.
The story does not have a happy ending but more towards an open ending. Chu Wang in a moment of carelessness, wrote a letter to FL to ask her to tolerate another girl’s intention to kill her. FL got upset and during that time Wu Gong Zi was confessing to her. FL agreed to be with Wu Gong Zi. This has hurt Chu Wang a lot. FL and Wu Gong Zi decided to find a quiet place to settle down and not bother with the war. But when the war started at Wu Gong Zi’s country, he decided to join the fight. He was killed. Chu Wang also lost his country war and got injured. FL managed to save him. Chu Wang recovered but lost his memory. FL and Chu Wang at last settled down in the northern region near the grassland but maintained their relationship as sibling.
