Comment:

There were two characters (Murong Ke and Shi Min) that also appeared in 媚公卿 (Mèi Gōng Qīng).  Unlike other time travel story, there was no mention on how FL’s soul time travel to the ancient world. The story started with FL woke up in a different place from her home.  It sounded as if it was all a dream.   It is quite typical in Lin Jia Cheng’s book where there is one female and many male leads.  You get confused and started to wonder who is the main male lead.  I like Murong Ke.  FL seems to be attracted to Murong Ke as well but because he is not a Han ren, she leaned towards Xie An.   It is also because Xie An could make her feel peaceful.   Nevertheless, it still sounded as if FL’s foot is standing on two boats.   No matter how FL denies it, she is a foxy lady.  To many male suitors wanted to get her.

Summary:

FL (Chu Si) is a girl from the modern world time travel to the Jin Dynasty.   The story started with FL woke up in a room that she could not recognised and slowly came to understand that her soul was transported to the ancient world.  FL was tied on a bed and suddenly a young man walked in.  He is ML1 (Murong Ke), a general from the Yan country.   It seems that FL had tried to kill ML1 3 times but failed.  She was captured by him and it was apparent that ML1 loves FL.  He wanted to bring her back to Yan country to be his Wang Fei.  FL has martial arts but was temporary blocked by ML1 to avoid her from running away.

FL eventually followed ML1 back to Yan country.  ML1 is the 4th son of the Yan emperor and of course the emperor objected to his son’s proposal to marry FL.  ML1’s mother also did not want FL to marry his son hence she help FL to unblock her martial arts and helped her to run away while ML1 was not around.   In return, she had promised ML1’s mother to see ML1 again.   It was all a plot.  FL met with the brutal Zhao Emperor, Shi Hu.  He saw FL in the Yan country and was attracted to her.  FL managed to run away and met with ML2 (Xie An) from the Jin Country and Shi Min (Ran Min).  FL willingly being captured by Shi Hu in order to help ML2 and Shi Min to get away.   FL was later given some guidance to use the face mask to cover her identity to run away from Shi Hu. FL met with ML1 again and told him that she is called Wang Shi.  From her disposition, ML1 assumed that FL came from one of the influential family in Jin Country.

FL is actually the fiancée of ML2.  FL followed ML2 back to Jin country.  FL left again after a confrontation episode in an function with Sima Yan(Jin emperor).  She met with a man who gave her Wang Yun Niang’s face mask.  The man was actually her apprentice brother (Xi Siong).   Xi Siong told her that she is Chu Si and also Wang Yun Niang.  She has been studying martial arts in Long Pan Shan and every time she returned home to visit her family, she puts on the face mask of Yun Niang.  Their master has predicted that she will go through one life death obstacle that will cause her to lose her past memories.

FL decided to stay away from the Jin country until things cool down hence she traveled towards Yan country.  She met with ML1 again.  ML1 was extremely happy and told her that he has been searching for her ever since.  They ran away after they were attacked by Si Hu.  They passed by the Qin country and was escorted to meet with the Qin Emperor.  Qin Emperor used his adoptive twin daughters to seduce ML1 with the intention of getting ML1 to destroy Si Hu.  ML1 misunderstood FL’s signals and thought that FL allowed him to accept the girls as his concubines.  FL left ML1 that very night.

FL was tricked by ML1’s brother and got into some problem.  Luckily, she met Shi Min and managed to escape. She decided to change her face mask again.  This time, it is a male face mask.  She went back to Jin country.

She met with Sima Yue and became sworn brothers.  When ML2 met FL, he suspected of FL’s identity.  He confronted her and eventually they confessed their feelings for each other.  Because of Sima Yue’s jealousy as he has long suspected of FL’s disguise, he helped Sima Yan to capture FL and held her captive in the palace.  She was also poisoned which led to the loss of martial arts.

During her captivity, occasionally Sima Yan will come to see her.  Sima Yan wanted FL to love him like before but FL is no longer the same Chu Si.   FL also got to know another man called Chui Si.  FL was trying to escape by asking Chui Si to find out any method to help her to recover her martial arts.

A few months later, Sima Yan wanted to announce to the world that he is going to appoint FL as his new royal concubine.  All the top officials were present.  Murong Ke was also present.  FL denied that she is Wang Yu Niang.  ML1 said that since FL’s background was not clear, requested that the Jin Emperor to pass her to him as his wife.   Wei Yang Zhi also took the opportunity to request the emperor to pass FL to him instead of giving her to an outsider like Murong Ke.   FL told the emperor and everyone in present that she loves ML2 and asked to be betrothed to ML2 instead.  This has angered Sima Yan and out of the sudden, he gave FL to ML1 as a gift instead.

After the function, FL was kidnapped by Sima Yue.  Sima Yue has to release her when ML1 threatened to tell Si Hu that FL is in Jin country so that Si Hu will come to attack Jin Country.  FL went to seek help from Chui Si for help and while they tried to leave the city, they were intercepted by ML1.  ML1 took FL back to Yan country.  ML has also taken FL’s innocence and promised her that he will marry her.  At first FL thought since she has lost her martial arts, there was no other place to go and felt that she no longer qualified to be ML2’s wife because of her lost innocence, FL decided to take a chance to be with ML1.

Unfortunately, Emperor Yan insisted that ML1 to marry another princess as his main wife.  After a few months in Yan country, no matter how ML1 loves her and promised her that she will be the only person in his heart, FL knew that there was no future between them.  There were just too many differences between them.  When ML1 failed to reject the marriage proposal with the princess, FL escaped on ML1’s wedding day to the princess.

Once again, FL met Shi Min and he helped her to get antidote for her poison.  FL went back to Jin country.  This time, she used an entirely different face masks.  When she got into Jin country, she heard the wedding announcement of  Miss Yu and Sime Yue.  She went to their wedding function and saw ML2  there.  FL also rescued ML2 from a massacre.

ML2 told FL that he was injured and his life was hanging between life and death hence was not able to help her when she was held in captivity by the emperor and subsequent kidnapping by ML1.  ML1 told FL not to think of the past and begin a new life with him.

It took some time for FL to let go the shame of her lost innocence and accepted ML2’s love whole heartedly.
