This story reminded me 五王争妃 (Wu Wang Zheng Fei). The FL and her mother brought calamities because of their looks. The title already indicates the sad ending of the story. I almost stop listening when I reached episode 53 but got curious to find out why there are so many women that look like FL and her mother. The author could have made it a happy ending but she decided to make a tragic ending.
FL (Yun Qing Shuang) was asked by her master (Liu Mu Feng) to go to Xi Meng Country to send a letter from the Bei Chen Emperor. Before FL left, her disciple brother (Cheng Yu Xuan) told her to go see his friend, General Xia Hou Xi (XHX)who could probably help her to get a chance to meet with the Xi Meng Emperor. Chen Yu Xuan (CYX) gave FL a dagger that he got from XHX before.
On the way, FL bumped into a scholar a few times. FL even helped the scholar escaped when the scholar’s life got threatened. FL thought it was a simple robbery. When the man saw a dagger dropped from FL, he stopped the fight and left.
When FL got into Xuan Cheng, the capital city of Xi Men Country, she met a few interesting people. First, it is a girl who invited her to meet her master called Lin Hai Yu Yang (LHYY). FL found it weird that LHYY asked about her mother. On her way back, she met with a white-haired old woman trying to kill her. When FL thought she was about to die, the old woman poisoned her instead of killing her. The Old Woman asked FL to bring Lou Ying Qi (LYQ) to see her at Mu Lan Shan. FL ate the antidote pills given to her by her master and thought that it will clear the poison from her body.
FL went to the General’s residence asking to meet with XHX. It appears that the man that she thought was a robber was actually XHX. XHX got attracted to FL and helped her to meet the Emperor. That nite, FL was mistakenly abducted and brought to Si Tu’s residence. FL woke up and saw a maid got shocked knowing that they abducted the wrong person. The maid begged FL to help her missus’ lover who got imprisoned in the Master Si Tu’s bedroom. FL agreed
FL sneaked in and overheard a conversation between an old man and a young man. The young man’s voice sounds familiar to FL. Suddenly there was a fight. A man covered in black fighting with the young man and the old man also sense FL’s presence. FL noticed she lost her power to fight and almost got killed by the old man. Both FL and the man in black got trapped in a secret room. The man in black revealed himself. It was XHX. XHX told FL that scholar that she met before is Yu Chi Jun (YCJ) from Tian Qi Country. YCJ knows martial arts and FL knew that she has made a mistake. They saw a man called Zhang Rou Shen (ZRS) was tied to a chain in the secret room. Three of them managed to escape.
When they heard from ZRS that there is another secret passage in that residence, FL and XHX went back to check out. They bumped into Miss Si Tu (Si Tu Ying) and took her to reunite with ZRS. FL followed XHX to Qin Huang Shan to meet with Xi Men Emperor. FL got an attack from the poison on her way to Qin Huang Shan. FL told XHX what had happened. XHX went quiet for a while and then said he will help FL. When the Xi Men Emperor saw FL, he got stunned for a short while. After the letter presented, the emperor said he needs to discuss with his ministers before he can give a reply to FL. The emperor asked FL to stay. That night, XHX came to take FL away after he sensed something not right with the Emperor.
XHX and FL went to Mulan Shan. FL surprised when she heard that Guai Hua Tuo is living within the Mu Lan Shan. They bumped into the Old Woman. XHX and the Old Woman started to fight. The Old Woman won the fight and let them go to find Guai Hua Tuo. When Guai Hua Tuo was about to treat FL, a voice came from the Old Woman stopped him. Guai Hua Tuo changed his mind and asked them to leave instead. Guai Hua Tuo gave a bottle of pills that can help to delay the poison attack.
XHX and FL went to look to Lou Ying Qi, who is XHX’s master. They bumped into FL’s disciple sister (Liu Xu). Liu Xu insisted to follow FL. Liu Xu and FL relationship have never been good but Liu Xu is very good in concealing the fact in front of CYX. Since the arrival of Liu Xu, FL felt that she has lost the support and love of CYX and her master. FL jealous of Liu Xu. That night, they spent the night in the cave. Liu Xu went out in the middle of the night and when XHX went to look for her, Liu Xu appeared in front of FL and asked her to follow her to a place. They went to an abandoned house. There was a tablet with her master’s wife name. Liu Xu told FL about her mother’s past, Liu Mu Feng (FL’s master and Liu Xu’s father) and FL’s mother. Liu Xu said FL’s mother took away her mother’s husband and her father. Liu Xu asked FL to give XHX to her to compensate for the wrong that FL’s mother did. FL refused.
FL found out that Lou Ying Qi (LYQ) was the old man that she met before. The old woman is Xue Yu Chan and was once LYQ’s fiancée. LYQ met FL’s mother and fell in love. LYQ asked to cancel his engagement with XYC. FL’s mother took the poison meant for YLQ. The poison caused FL’s mother to age rapidly and stayed indoors in the dark forever. LYQ told XHX that there is no antidote for the poison in FL’s mother or FL. XYC is the only descendant of the Murong’s family from the Nan Feng Country, who is famous for their poisoning. XYC only learnt the poisoning skills from her master and before she learns the antidote formula, her master had already passed away. LYQ also mentioned that he has destroyed XYC’s medical room with all poison and antidote medicines when he first got to know that FL’s mother got poisoned by XYC.
FL left after she overheard LYQ and XHX’s conversation. FL bumped into Yun Chi Jun fighting a man called Wang Zi Zhan (WZZ). FL left a bottle of medicine that she got from Guai Hua Tuo for WZZ. When FL went to get her horse, she saw Yun Chi Jun (YCJ) waiting for her. They met an old man covered with a black veil and a wolf. This old man’s martial skill is way above of YCJ. The old man abducted both of them. He forced YCJ to become his disciple but got rejected. That night, FL has a high fever and was delirious in her speech. The next morning, the old man treated FL and YCJ found out that the old man was actually his master’s disciple brother called Ding Yi that went missing many years ago. Ding Yi gave a manual and a sword and asked FL to learn on her own. Once she has learnt it, she can leave.
After FL left, she decided to make full use of her remaining time to do something for her country. FL went back to Si Tu mansion to investigate on the true intention of Si Tu Han. FL impersonate as Si Tu Ying to get into the Si Tu mansion. FL met YCJ again at Si Tu mansion.
FL got discovered by Si Tu Han but when he saw FL’s real face, he claimed that FL was his long-lost daughter. The Xi Men Emperor at first was angry with XHX when he left with FL. XHX told the emperor what had happened. The Emperor used military pressure to retrieve FL from Si Tu Han and kept FL in the palace. Every day, there were different doctors came to check whether there is any remedy for the poison. One day, FL went for a walk and suddenly stopped in front of a courtyard with a familiar name. FL got invited in and met with a consort called Xu Jie Yu who looks like her. Xu Jie Yu told FL that Xi Men Emperor likes to collect or abduct girls that look like FL’s mother.
After her meeting with Xu Jie Yu, FL knows she cannot stay on at the palace. YCJ disguised as a doctor to see FL. That nite, YCJ sneaked in to help FL leave the palace.
Both YCJ and FL managed to escape. XHX almost found FL but she refused to see XHX. FL left with YCJ again. But in the middle of the way, FL left YCL preferring to die alone. FL bumped into people sent by the Xi Men Emperor. FL brought to meet with Xi Men Emperor. The Emperor asked FL to leave Xi Men country and do not get in touch with his son (XHX).
FL took a small road to go back to Bei Chen country and bumped into the mountain bandits. YCJ saved FL. This time, YCJ insisted to bring FL to look for treatment for her poison. They went back to Mu Lan Shan to meet with Guai Hua Tuo. YCJ and Guai Hua Tuo made a bet but Guai Hua Tuo put in his condition that he can fulfil any wishes of YCJ except to save FL. After YCL won the bet, he asked Guai Hua Tuo to transfer the poison in FL’s body to him and GHT can treat him instead. GHT agreed but when he realised how deathly the poison was, he stopped in time. GHT told YCL that he has no solutions for the poison.
YCJ and FL left in disappointment and without realising, they went to the wrong road. They seek shelter in a hut and surprised that it belongs to Xue Yu Chan. YCJ and XYC fight. When XYC tried to poison YCJ, FL blocked it off. XYC at last relented and passed a book that was left by her mother on the antidote formula.
FL was getting weaker and while YCJ went out to buy new clothes and find out more information with one of the medicinal ingredients, FL got abducted by the same group of mountain bandits. YCJ went to save FL and got humiliated. FL did not want YCJ’s humiliation to spread hence used all her strength to kill all the mountain bandits. FL asked YCJ to send her home to Yun Chang Shan.
When FL got home at Yun Chang Shan, she went to see her mother first. FL later found a tomb with the same name in a forbidden area. The only people who know the history is either FL’s mother or her master. YCJ used a method that he had discussed with GHT without FL’s knowledge to treat her. YCJ transferred the blood between them to pass the poison to his body. YCJ rather die instead of FL. When FL woke up, she cried non-stop after she realised what YCJ had done. YCJ asked FL to become his wife in his next life. FL said she will not wait for next life. She will become his wife now.
It was by accident that FL found the antidote that could save YCJ. YCJ left after he fully recovered, knowing that they were on the opposing side when it comes to their country.
The Empress Dowager of Tian Zhu Country invited 4 princesses from 4 countries to Tian Zhu Country for the Emperor to select one of them as his Empress. YCJ bumped into XHX on the street. XHX asked about FL’s status. YCJ explained that FL has recovered and she was back to Yun Chang Shan. Suddenly, their attention got diverted to a woman who looks like FL. The woman is known as Yan Jing, Yan Jing works in a brothel. Yan Jing came from the Bei Chen Country on a mission. Her mission is to kill Jia He Di (Tian Qi Emperor).
Yan Jing collaborated with XHX to assassinate Jia He Di. They thought Jia He Di will pick Xian Lin Princess from Tung Yue country but out of everyone’s surprise, he selected Chun Wan Princess from Bei Chen Country. Yan Jing changed her plan and tried to kill Jia He Di. FL failed and saved by XHX. Yan Jing admitted at last that she is FL. YCJ also suspected that Yan Jing is FL hence he keeps visiting Yan Jing at the brothel.
Chun Wan Princess fell in love with Jia He Di after she married him. She could not bring herself to kill him. When Chun Wan Princess died, Liu Mu Feng asked FL to send a message back to Bei Chen country. FL bumped into Wang Zi Zhan on her way back to Bei Chen country. Wang Zi Zhan got injured heavily and told FL that YCJ’s uncle and cousins planned to kill him on his way to Nan Feng country. FL turned back to warn YCJ.
FL tried to see YCJ at his residence but got humiliated by his grandfather instead. FL went to look for Liu Xu and Liu Mu Feng but could not find them. When FL got back at the brothel, YCJ was waiting for her. FL did not know what to say to keep YCJ from leaving and she just hugged him. YCJ and FL ended up on the bed instead. The next day, YCJ took FL to his mother’s tomb to pay respect. YCJ said in front of his mother’s tomb that FL is his wife.
Liu Mu Feng asked FL to kill YCJ otherwise, he will end their master-disciple relationship. FL could not bring herself to kill YCJ. FL asked YCJ to leave with her instead. YCJ agreed and told FL that death of Chun Wan Princess orchestrated by Xi Men Country hence they intend to attack Xi Men country. FL passed on the information to Liu Mu Feng and XHX. FL left with YCJ.
FL felt drowsy during the journey. When she woke up, it was already many days later. Bei Chen country got eradicated. FL felt extremely guilty and angry that YCJ has used her. FL tried to kill the Jia He Di and YCJ during the birthday celebration of Old General Yun. Old General Yun got accidentally injured and died eventually. FL got captured and injured.
Mu Wan Ru (MWR), the beloved consort of Jia He Di begged Jia He Di to pardon FL because FL was once her saviour. MWR also informed him that FL and YCJ are lovers. FL tried killing herself after her assassination failed. FL also refused to accept any treatment after her capture. FL changed her mind after she got to know that she is 2 months pregnant. FL released at last. FL refused to see YCJ when he came to look for her.
FL misunderstood the relationship between YCJ and his disciple sister and left for Nan Feng Country to look for the medicinal herbs that can cure her mother. YCJ followed closely at the back. At first, FL rejected help from YCJ but after she thought about the danger that could cause her to miscarry, she relented at last. When they got to the top of the mountain, they bumped into Liu Mu Feng and YCJ’s master. Both got into a fight for the herb. YCJ and FL block their masters from killing each other. LMF left. The herb was given to FL.
YCJ and FL reconciled and they met Liu Ying and Zhang Rou Shen. FL told YCJ at last about her pregnancy. YCJ refused to travel anymore and they settled down in Feng Nan Country. The herb was kept in cold storage. FL gave birth to a baby boy and Liu Ying also gave birth to a baby a few months later. One day, a messenger came from Tian Zhu Country looking for YCJ. Something had happened in Tian Zhu country that needed him to return home to settle. FL relented and gave her permission for YCJ to go. At the same time, she went back to Yun Chang Shan with the herb to treat her mother. FL was very happy to find out that Chen Yu Xuan did not die from the battle. After her mother got cured, the first thing her mother did is to kill Liu Mu Feng.
FL’s biological mother killed by Liu Mu Feng many years ago. FL’s mother and Yue Chen Xi were twin sisters who got separated since they were babies. FL’s real father was actually Yun Jing Ting, the Bei Chen Emperor. FL and her aunt sneaked into the Tian Zhu palace to meet with Yun Jing Ting. Yun Jing Ting told them that he will not leave with them as he has promised Jia He Emperor that as long as he treats the Bei Chen’s citizens well, he will stay on quietly in Tian Zhu Country.
Mu Wan Ru told YCJ that it was Yun Jing Ting that instructed her to kill Jia He Emperor. YCJ could not believe it and asked for a reason. MWR said it was because she is a Bei Chen’s citizen hence it is only natural that seek revenge. After hearing that, YCJ was wondering whether FL would feel the same. XHX came to see FL and told her Jun Jing Ting has died. It was instructed by YCJ.
FL reunited with YCJ. That night FL tried to kill YCJ. When she failed, she killed herself instead. FL told YCJ that she has to do it because Yun Jing Ting is her father.
