This is a short palace story. I could not find the ebook. I did not pay attention the first time I listened and decided to go back to listen again.
FL (Xing Zhan) is a palace maid. FL offended Hua Consort and was punished to work at Ling Yuan Palace. Ling Yuan palace is an empty and abandoned palace after Ling Consort passed away. The emperor (ML) still misses Ling Consort and one day, he went to Ling Yuan palace and met FL there. FL was later promoted to Gui Ren.
FL asked a eunuch to investigate a man called Lu Xing Jing (LXJ) and Hua Consort got to about it. A long time ago, FL and LXJ supposed to elope, but when her family’s home was burnt down, FL has no choice but to enter the palace. FL was assigned to stay at Shang Hua Palace. ML treated FL like how he was treating Ling Consort. FL knows that the emperor takes her as Ling Consort’s replacement.
One day, FL decided to take a risk to discuss the corruption issues in the country. FL was surprised when ML showed her a list of those that were punished due to corruption. She was relieved when she saw that her family’s enemy has been punished.
FL was promoted to Consort status. Hua Consort invited FL to a party with the intention to get FL drunk. Then she locked FL in a room with LXJ wanted to accuse her of adultery. Luckily the emperor was there to help FL.
FL has changed since she entered the palace. She used LXJ to help her to stabilise her position. FL asked LXJ to assassinate ML and she killed LCJ with the excuse of protecting ML. FL framed the assassination attempt to Hua Consort and LXJ.
FL became an empress at last. At ML’s deathbed, FL got to know that ML actually knew everything that she did. ML said that he thought FL was the same like Ling Consort but she was more like Hua Consort. FL realised too late that ML protected her because of love.
