As of todate, this is the longest audiobook that I have listened. I call this book “female doraemon time travel story”, pretty similar to 神医嫡女. There are more than 1000 episodes and the sweet scenes between ML and FL only started after 800 episodes. I just find it funny that both ML & FL were attracted to each other and already slept together and yet ML was able to abstain himself from having sex with his own wife.
FL (Lin Chu Jiu) is a doctor from the modern world. She is also a spy and was caught when she helped a group of researchers leaves the country. When she woke up, there was a slap to her face. She became the first daughter of the left prime minister of the Tung Wen country in the ancient world. She also retained the memories of her predecessor. Her birth mother died when she was 3 years old. Her father married her birth mother’s sister after that. On the outside, her aunty seems like a caring mother. In actual fact she purposely pampered FL and made her into a bad tempered girl. She has also been secretly feeding FL poison.
FL’s stepmom plotted to get the crown prince to fall for her own biological daughter (Lin Wang Ting) resulted in the crown prince to cancel his engagement with FL. FL was decreed by the emperor to marry ML (Xiao Wang/Xiao Tian Yau). ML is the emperor’s brother and a crippled general.
Of course ML was not happy with the marriage knowing that the emperor purposely tried to humiliate him by passing over his son’s discarded fiancee to him. After the marriage, ML and FL did not live happily together.
There were mistrusts and misunderstandings that happened between FL and ML. There was one time where she managed to detect someone had poisoned the treatment bath of ML, but was accused of being the cohorts of the killer instead. ML also knew that FL can treat his leg hence forced her to treat him in return to save her maternal family. FL without her knowledge was used as a bait to trap a paid killer. She was saved by a man with mask called Chong Lo/Mo Jun. In actual fact, Mo Jun is ML.
Due to the fight between ML and the emperor, FL was often pushed to the front of the conflict and this has caused FL to give up on ML even though she has fallen in love with him. FL asked for a divorce but ML refused to let her go. FL knew that she is tied to ML hence only if ML stays alive that she has a chance as well.
It was towards the last part of the story that ML came to realise the importance of FL and how fortunate that he had met her. ML also slowly understand the meaning of love and how to treasure FL.
