This audiobook is highly recommended. It is short with only 53 episodes and was produced in multiple voices. There are two irritating antagonists in the story. Jiu Princess, the spoilt princess that likes Chen Zui Shi and was jealous of FL. The other one is Xue Jia, the niece to the Empress and cousin to ML.
FL (Gong Qing) said to be the prettiest girl in the kingdom. Her mother (Gong Fu Ren) was looking for a suitor for FL and does not want FL to enter the palace. Gong Fu Ren agreed for FL to impersonate her cousin (Xiang Wan Yu) to show off her literary talent to impress her fiance (Du Gu Duo). FL was kidnapped but was rescued by a man with a mask. The man joke and asked for her hand in marriage in return for saving her. In the end, the man took away FL’s pearl from her dress and asked that FL to agree to a request the next time FL sees the pearl again.
The first candidate identified was Yue Lei, a general. However Gong Fu Ren also thought about the possibility that a general may get killed during a war which will then leave her daughter as a widow. She changed her mind and decided to select another candidate. The next candidate they identified was Chen Zui Shi, a newly appointed official that just won the first place in the literacy examination. Unfortunately, he was also identified by the emperor as a husband candidate for Jiu Princesss. The third candidate was Prince Rui.
ML (Mu Chen Hong) is the crown prince that fell in love with FL many years ago. ML was also the man that rescued FL previously. He plotted to ensure that no suitors dared to propose to FL as he wanted to make her his wife. Of course, FL and her mother tried all methods to avoid FL from marrying into the royal family but all their plans were thwarted by ML.
