I read about this story at Shushengbar and don’t quite like the story. If was an accident that I clicked on this audiobook when I was searching for 三只鸳鸯一对半. The start of the story is really funny hence I continued. It is quite entertaining as it was produced in multiple voices. Yet it is not my cup of tea.
The story started with FL (Shen Miau Miau) who was four months pregnant went on a marriage date and both her ex-husbands came to join the date. FL was married to ML1 (Pei Yan Zhen) 2 years ago. ML1 has a promising future in the government and was chosen by 9th Princess as husband candidate. It was well known that 9th Princess has been chasing after ML1 and then one day, ML1 asked for permission to return home to Yang Zhou to take up a local governor position giving the excuse that weather in the capital city was not suitable to his health condition. On the wedding day of ML1 and FL, 9th princess gate crash their wedding and abducted ML1. ML1 was not the ideal husband that FL wanted. FL has always been attracted to strong men with martial arts skill and ML1 is a scholar. FL thought that since the wedding rites was not fully completed, she packed her stuff to return home. Before she managed to leave, ML1 returned to continue the wedding rites. 2 years later, there was news spreading that ML1 is related to FL. ML1 is the distant cousin to FL’s mother hence the emperor sent an edict to cancel their marriage.
A few days after she returned home, she was bored and went out to look around for fun in town with her brother. She fallen into the river and was saved by ML2 (Song Xi Yuan). ML2 later went to her father to ask for her hand in marriage. A month later FL was married to ML2. However, there were always obstacles that prevented ML2 from consummating his marriage.
2 months later, FL was diagnosed by a physician that she was 4 months pregnant. Then another physician said FL was pregnant for 2 months. Both ML1 and ML2 argued that the child belongs to them. This story was widely spread until the emperor sent the royal physician to check on her. She was diagnosed by the royal physician to be 3 months pregnant. This put her into a difficult situation. If she was 4 months pregnant, the child belongs to ML1. If she was 2 months pregnant, then the child belongs to ML2. When ML2 went on a business trip, FL went to his study room to draft the divorce paper and used his official seal and returned home. She didn’t want ML2 to be laughed at for being cuckolded.
FL also misunderstood that both her ex-husband were attracted to each other.
FL later realised that it was no longer important to get marry again since her family is very rich. Her son can follow her surname and can do without a father.
The emperor also wanted to know who is the child’s father. He came to see her and even stayed at her house. During this time, FL gave birth to a baby boy (nick name Tang Yuan). The emperor has 5 princesses and no male heir. The emperor wanted to carry out a blood test to see who the child belongs to. Unfortunately, it did not produce any confirmed results.
3 years later…
FL realised that her son was unlike other kids. Very quiet and like to read instead. FL was disappointed that her son has no interest in martial arts.
One day during FL’s dad birthday celebration, a busybody mentioned the upcoming marriage of ML with a merchant’s daughter from Su Chow.
ML1 has been given an edict by the empress dowager to marry another girl. But on the wedding day, ML announced his refusal to marry the girl because he loves FL. ML was sent to prison for capital punishment. He was released when his family presented a pass from the previous emperor to avoid the capital punishment. His position was taken away and demoted to be a civilian.
ML1 took on a job as a chef at the Shen family. On another hand, ML2 went to take on the job as a gardener at the Shen mansion. There were fights between ML1 and ML2 trying to outdo one another. At this time, FL has already fallen in love with ML1.
Not too long after that, an edict came from the emperor to ask ML1 to enter the palace to cook for the royal family. ML1 went to the capital city to overthrow the current government.
When FL’s myna bird was sick and a doctor came to treat the bird. The doctor advised FL to discontinue the contraceptive medicine on long term as it will bring harm to her health. FL came to realise that she was fed with contraceptive medicine by ML1 during her marriage to him. Once the bird recovered, FL heard the bird repeated a conversation with regards to the fate of Shen family. ML1 was planning to get rid of the Shen family.
FL used a drug to disguise a fake death to help get her family to run away. Unfortunately, when it was her time to do it, ML1 returned home and did not believe that she has passed away. He held on her body until the drug subsided and FL has no choice but to wake up.
FL asked whether ML was willing to let go of his ambition if she stayed on with ML. ML said no. During the mooncake festival, there was an assassination attempt. FL was injured. In actual fact, FL already noted that this assassins were sent by her father to help her to escape. She took the same drug to fake her death but she never expected to be truly injured. Once again, ML refused to accept that she died and held on her body. But on the second day, ML fainted. During this time, FL’s body was switched.
2 years later….
FL settled down in Lou Yang and started a theater business there. ML2 came often to visit her but was being ignored by FL. One day, ML2 brought a cat for FL. It was her son’s pet. Later on, she got to know that her son ran away from home and was now in Lou Yang. ML1 came to Lou Yang to look for his. FL planned a fire to distract ML to order to save her son. She discovered during this time that ML1 was blind.
ML2 arranged for FL and her son to stay in a temple. One day, she met ML1 that came to the temple to pray. She overheard ML1’s confession to the monk that he regretted his past decision. While FL tried to run away with her son, her son stopped halfway knowing that ML1 has fallen down while chasing them. Tang Yuan told FL that he needed to help ML1 because ML1 could no longer see. Because of that, ML1 managed to reunite with FL and their son.
FL followed ML1 back to the capital city. FL agreed to marry him again. But it was a plot. FL was helping ML2 to steal the royal seal from ML1 to make ML2 to become the new emperor. ML1 was confined to stay in Lou Yang for life.
FL reunited with her own family. She found out that ML1 actually was aware of her plan all along. He has once proposed marriage to her by giving up his kingdom. When ML1 requested for Tang Yuan to be sent to Lou Yang to spend a few months with him, FL went with her son, pretending as his son’s personal maid. At first, FL thought that ML1 was still blind and tried to help him with his daily activities. FL did not realise that ML1’s eyesight has actually recovered.
