This is the third book of Hai Qing Na Tian E that I listened. Though I may not like 淑女好逑 (Shu Nu Hau Chiu) but I like 暮春之令 (Mù Chūn Zhī Lìng). Both Mu Chun Ling and this book were produced by Su Rui Han. I like Su Rui Han’s voice.
ML (Gu Yun) and Wang Zan went to invite a locally famous doctor to treat their General. When they reached the village, they saw a middle age madam and could not believed that she was the doctor. She looks like a normal village housewife. The villager addressed her as Yau Bian Que. FL (Yau Fu Zhi) initially declined the invitation and claimed that her prescription should suffice to treat the General and the soldiers. When ML tried to use force, FL retaliated with a drug called Ming Ling Zhi to incapacitate them. FL later changed her mind and followed them back to the military camp with the exchange that she is allowed to join them as she needed to look for her uncle.
FL is actually a missus from the Yau family from Ching Ling city. Her parents passed away when she was very young. She was under the custody of her paternal uncle Yau Qian. Yau Qian often traveled around and arranged for her to stay and study with the Bai Zhi San Ren at Hang Shan mountain. While she was there, she has inclination to learn to prescribe medication but has no interest to learn treatment procedure. FL and Yau Qian has agreed to meet once a year but this year Yau Qian did not turn up. FL was worried and went to look for him based on his letters.
FL disguised her actual look with a powder provided by her master to keep herself safe. Both ML and Wang Zan was surprised to see a young pretty girl after she cleaned her face.
FL did not manage to find Yau Qian and decided to return home. She told ML her true identity.
ML’s mother is the eldest princess, aunty to the current emperor. After ML’s father passed away, his mother re-married to Xin An Hou. ML live with his paternal uncle (Gu Xian) and also followed his footstep to enter the military.
The next time ML met FL again, was in a royal function. Yau Qian was appointed a government position and brought FL to attend the royal function. During this time, FL saw ML, Wang Zhan and also an old friend called Xie Zhen. FL has a cousin sister called Yau Yan who likes Xie Zhen and jealous of FL.
Xie Zhen’s parents and FL’s parents are close friends. FL and Xie Zhen grew up together. Xie Zhen loves FL and he was disappointed when he accidentally saw FL meeting with ML. Yau Yan confessed her love to Xie Zhen but was rejected. Her family arranged for Yau Yan to enter the palace to become a consort.
Gu Xian is an old friend of Yau Qian and he saw FL as a suitable life partner for ML hence he created opportunities for ML to meet with FL often. ML has already fallen in love with FL. Besides ML, Wang Zan and Xie Zhen were also attracted to FL.
Gu Xian went to ask Yau Qian to betroth FL to ML. Yau Qian hesitated because of ML’s mother. But Yau Qian agreed after he found out that FL has also fallen for ML. Their wedding was carried out within 10 days. Yau Qian resigned from his position due to his illness. After the wedding, FL escorted Yau Qian to Hang Shan to recuperate. A few months later, ML went to Hang Shan mountain to escort FL home.
Not too long after that, ML received an edict to go to the south for a mission. FL was kidnapped by the crown prince from the south. FL managed to run away and was saved by Wang Zan. FL found out that she was pregnant. ML reunited with FL and escorted FL back to the capital city. ML returned to the south after Pu Yan Wang announced his revolt.
When the Emperor was found unconscious after spending a night at Yau Yan’s palace, Yau Yan was arrested. ML’s mother arranged for FL to enter the palace to treat the emperor. It was a plot planned by ML’s mother. ML’s father was killed by the Emperor’s father. ML’s mother has planned for many years to force her son to revolt. When the enemy from the north started to attack the capital city, ML defied order to return to the capital city. The Emperor also thought ML has intention to revolt hence he kept FL by his side as a pawn to control ML.
ML told his mother that the current emperor is good emperor and has no intention to revolt. ML retreated his military after he chased the enemy back to the north.
The story ended with ML faking his own death and live in seclusion with FL in a small town.
