I thought I will get bored with another rebirth story but I was wrong. I got attracted to the voice of the producer and of course, the story as well. This story not only focuses on the FL but also the love story of her parents. If you like 楚王妃 (Chu Wang Fei), 庶女有毒 @ 锦绣未央 (Shù Nu You Dú @ Jinxiù Wèiyāng – The Concubine Daughter is Poisonous @ Princess Wei Young) or 重生之将门毒后 (Chóng Shēng Zhī Jiàng Mén Dú Hòu) – Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage, you will probably like this story as well.
The character of FL’s father is better than Chu Wang Fei’s father but he is still an asshole to me. It seems common in the ancient time that men will go seek sexual release from their concubine when their wife got pregnant.
You will notice that the reader omitted the sexual parts of the stories. I got confused at first because the story suddenly got cut-off. I only realised later after I compared the reading with the ebook. I guess the reader was probably not comfortable reading the sexy parts of the story such as the wedding nite of FL and ML, the illicit affair of Kang Wang with An Yan Ran and Ning Wang with Qin Xiang Ning.
FL (An Qing Ran) forced to drink the abortion concoction by Dong Fang Ye (FL’s husband). FL accused of adultery and the baby in her womb belongs to her lover. An Yan Ran (FL’s stepsister) came into her room with her 1-year son and started to brag about her relationship with Dong Fang Ye. An Yan Ran told FL that they purposely kill her baby so that her son will become the next crown prince. FL swore that if she was given a chance to relive again, she will take revenge against those that betrayed her.
When FL woke up again, she went back to the age of 12 years old. Her personal maid, Ren Dong asked her to get ready for the family dinner. FL suddenly recalled an important incident in her previous life. FL rushed out of her room to look for her mother (Lian Jin Yu). In her past life, it was during this time that her mother got accused of adultery and separated from her. Two years later, her mother passed away. FL trusted her stepmother more and felt embarrassed of her mother. FL ignored her mother ever since that day. FL regretted that she did not do anything to protect her mother.
When FL got into her mother’s room, she saw a man lying next to her mother. That man is her mother’s cousin brother. FL woke them up with a pail of water. FL immediately asked her uncle to leave and got her mother to re-arrange her clothes. Suddenly, her father (An Zhong Tao) and stepmother (Lian Jin Rong) came in. Lian Jin Rong’s plot got thwarted by FL. Lian Jin Rong’s nanny confessed it was directed by Lian Jin Rong. Lian Jin Rong got seconded at her courtyard as punishment.
12 years ago, when Lian Jin Yu was pregnant, Lian Jin Rong plotted to stay at the General’s residence intended to seduce An Zhong Tao. Lian Jin Rong was not successful at first until she used an aphrodisiac drug on FL’s father to get what she wanted. Lian Jin Rong became the second wife of An Zhong Tao. Lian Jin Yu is a very proud woman and she could not forgive An Zhong Tao for his betrayal. Lian Jin Rong used all kinds of methods to seduce An Zhong Tao and managed to conceive two children with An Zhong Tao.
Lian Mu Han (FL’s cousin brother) and his good friend Dong Fang Jin (crown prince) came to the General’s mansion and bumped into FL. They suspected something had happened hence they followed her and invited themselves to stay on for dinner. FL got frustrated at first but she could not chase them out because they were guests. An Zhong Tao shocked when the servants brought in the food for dinner. The foods were leftovers. FL innocently said today’s dishes are better than before and it was very common that she and her mother are served with leftovers. Lian Jin Yu asked FL to take out the desert received in the morning while waiting for the new dishes to be cooked. When FL got into Lian Jin Yu’s inner room, she saw the mess on the bed hence she quickly changed the bed sheet. FL came out to tell her mom that she could not find the desert. Hong Mo Mo came forward to tell Lian Jin Yu that the desert has already turned mouldy when the kitchen servant gave them. This added to An Zhong Tao’s fury on Lian Jin Rong’s management of the household. An Zhong Tao questioned Lian Jin Rong in anger. Lian Jin Rong threatened that she will complain to Shu Gui Fei who is her cousin if An Zhong Tao punished her harshly. An Zhong Tao gets angrier and instructed Lian Jin Rong to be given 20 beatings and grounded in her room.
An Yan Ran went to see FL to beg her to persuade An Zhong Tao to cancel the punishment. FL has no intention to help and gave the excuse that An Zhong Tao did not agree. FL and An Yan Ran got an invitation to attend a party. An Yan Ran asked to share the carriage with FL but rejected by FL. FL gave the excuse that the emperor has commented that there is a difference between the children from main wife and children from the concubine. When they got to the party, An Yan Ran tried to push FL into the water but instead fell into the lake herself. FL remembered that it was this incident in her past life that weakens her health and affected her fertility. As expected, Kang Wang/Dong Fang Ye dived into the lake to save An Yan Ran. FL sprained her ankle and got carried away by Dong Fang Jin (ML). FL shocked to see ML.
When An Yan Ran saw Kang Wang, she fell in love with him. An Yan Ran asked Lian Jin Rong to write to Shu Gui Fei (LJR’s cousin sister) to invite Kang Want to their house. Kang Wang came as requested by his mother to visit Lian Jin Rong and FL. FL treated Kang Wang very coldly. Kang Wang felt challenged because FL was not like other girls that admired him or had a crush on him when they see him. Kang Wang decided to pursue FL with the intention to conquer her. When Lian Jin Rong got a chance to meet with Shu Gui Fei, she asked about the opportunity to betroth An Yan Ran to Kang Wang. Shu Gui Fei refused to commit and said Kang Wang’s engagement is decided by the Emperor.
Lian Jin Rong used her own method to get An Zhong Tao to cancel her punishment. Lian Jin Yu once again got disappointed with An Zhong Tao. FL advised Lian Jin Yu to give another chance to An Zhong Tao and said her stubbornness has pushed An Zhong Tao away and created a chance for Lian Jin Rong. FL came out with an idea to make her parents reconciled. FL asked her mother to go to Yue Hua Temple to stay a few months. An Zhong Tao got very sad because he thought Lian Jin Yu wanted to get away from him for good. Many years ago, Lian Jin Yu and An Zhong Tao met at Yue Hua Temple. When An Zhong Tao heard that Lian Jin Yu was sick, he rushed to Yue Hua Temple. On the way to the temple, An Zhong Tao admitted that he got attracted to Lian Jin Yu’s stubborn character and he wondered what had changed throughout the years and caused the separation between them. FL created a chance for An Zhong Tao and Lian Jin Yu to reconcile at Yue Hua Temple.
FL got attacked by a group of men. Coincidentally, ML was at the temple and saved FL. But they did not realise that there were two groups of assassins, one targeting FL and the group targeting ML. ML overused his power to fight and this triggered the poison in his body to react. ML got poisoned when he was still in his mother’s womb. ML took FL to hide in a cave near the temple.
The Empress fainted and fell sick when she heard that there was an assassination attempt and ML has gone missing. At the same time, An Zhong Tao and Lian Jin Yu went searching for FL as well. In order to prevent any rumours, Lian Jin Yu went back to the General’s residence and said FL is staying on to copy the Buddhist’s scripture. Lian Jin Rong asked An Yan Ran to go to the temple to check whether it was true and started to spread rumours about FL went missing. Kang Wang and few more missus of the high officers’ families went to Yue Hua Temple to pray for the Empress.
When An Yan Ran got to the temple, she insisted to enter FL’s room but stopped by FL’s personal maid (Ren Dong). FL suddenly came out from her to stop An Yan Ran from hitting Ren Dong. FL then pretended to faint when she saw An Zhong Tao and Lian Jin Yu walking towards them. FL wanted her parents to see An Yan Ran’s true character. An Yan Ran said FL was lying. In order to clear the accusation, Le Kong Monk was requested to check FL’s pulse. Le Kong Monk commented that FL fainted due to tiredness. An Yan Ran disbelieved what the monk had said and started to accuse the monk of lying as well. An Yan Ran got sent back to the General’s residence to be grounded as punishment. FL received a message from Hong Mo Mo that An Granny and her uncle will be coming for a visit. Hence, they all went home. At first, Lian Jin Rong thought she can take the credit for arranging the welcome party and will only tell An Zhong Tao on the arrival day itself. It did not go as planned as FL and her parents returned earlier without giving Lian Jin Rong any notice.
During the welcome party, An Yan Ran put the aphrodisiac drug into a cup of tea. An Yan Ran served it to FL claiming that it came from An Granny. FL exchanged her tea with An Yan Ran when she smells something different on her tea. FL received a note to say that ML wanted to see her. FL met ML and showed the note that he received. FL asked ML to talk in a room. FL used the same notes and send them to An Yan Rang and Kang Wang. Lian Jin Rong said she needs to look for FL and escorted guests to go see the black peony that was in the inner courtyard. They bumped into a couple making love. Lian Jin Rong thought the girl was FL but it was An Yan Ran and Kang Wang. The guests left immediately after that. Kang Wang got angry thinking that it was a set-up by Lian Jin Rong and An Yan Ran. At first, An Yan Ran accused FL of framing her but without any proof, she changed her statement to say that Kang Wang forced her.
Shu Gui Fei asked to meet with FL. She wants Kang wang to marry FL to get An Zhong Tao’s support to help Kang Wang to get the throne. Before she managed to broach the topic, FL got called away to visit the Empress arranged by ML. Lian Jin Yu told An Zhong Tao that they should start to find a husband for FL. Lian Jin Yu said she does not want FL to marry into the royal family and An Zhong Tao agreed as well.
An Granny came to the capital city with her son An Zhong Yuan and his entire family. FL’s cousin sister (An Ran Yue) is very spoiled. In FL’s previous life, An Ran Yue married Ning Wang and helped An Yan Ran to hurt her. FL also wondered why An Granny seems to favour An Zhong Yuan more than her father.
After Lian Jin Yu got pregnant, she was very careful with her diet. No matter how careful she was, there was a loophole that Lian Jin Rong found to harm Lian Jin Yu and her unborn baby. FL found a harmful substance buried in the indoor plants and flowers. FL started to monitor of everything that goes in and out of her mother’s courtyard.
ML appeared one night at FL’s room with an injury. The poison in his body reacted again. FL used the limited knowledge of acupuncture that she learnt from Ye Hen to reduce the pain. ML did not stay long after his wound gets treated. FL wrote to her master (Jun Ting) to ask how to detoxify the poison. After FL received the reply from Jun Ting, she practises it using rabbits and monkey to get familiar with the treatment before she tries on ML. ML appeared again with more serious injuries. This created a chance for FL to try the treatment plan suggested by Ye Hen. FL asked ML to come see her again the next time the poison attacks his body as one treatment session could not clear all the poisons in his body.
The next day, Lian Jin Rong led a big crowd to FL’s courtyard claiming that she kept a man inside her room. Lian Jin Rong received a tip from one of the maids in FL’s courtyard. When An Zhong Tao came, ML has already left. An Zhong Tao got furious with Lian Jin Rong and demoted her to the 4th level of concubine status.
An Granny said if Lian Jin Yu gave birth to a son, the General’s mansion and all the family wealth is inherited by the firstborn son of the main wife. An Granny purposely said this to encourage An Zhong Tao’s concubines to do something to cause the miscarriage. An Granny also encourage Lian Jin Rong to seduce An Zhong Tao back to her bed.
Lian Jing Rong plotted again to make Lian Jin Yu lose her baby. Lian Jin Rong forced An Ming Xuan to pretend to be sick. Lian Jin Rong claimed that An Ming Xuan is going to die and it is caused by the evil spirit residing in Lian Jin Yu’s womb. Lian Jin Rong paid a Taoist master to put on a show to force Lian Jin Yu to abort her baby to save An Ming Xuan. Lian Jin Rong even got An Granny to support her. ML helped FL by asking Le Kong Monk to go to FL’s home. Luckily, Le Kong Monk arrived on time to stop them. When Le Kong Monk walked pass Lian Jin Rong, he stopped and warned her to stop what she was doing before bad karma comes back to her. The monk went to check An Ming Xuan and confirmed that An Ming Xuan is not going to die. Le Kong Monk said it was better for An Ming Xuan to be separated from his birth mother. An Zhong Tao grounded Lian Jing Rong again and demoted her to the lowest level of the concubine status. Another concubine got assigned to look after An Ming Xuan. Le Kong Monk predicted that the unborn baby is a boy and has great future prospects. Before Le Kong Monk left the An’s residence, he also hinted to FL that she will become an empress in future.
FL went to Yue Hua Temple to give thanks. On the way home, she got waylaid by Qin Jian Ren. Qin Jian Ren saw FL dancing before in a party and wanted to rape her. ML coincidentally in the vicinity of Yue Hua Temple and heard someone screaming for help. FL got saved by ML.
FL and her sisters got invited to attend the Empress birthday party. FL and three other missuses need to ride a boat to cross the lake to the party venue. Qin Xiang Ning purposely caused FL to fall into the lake. FL got hit on the head and fainted. She was then moved to another place arranged by Qin Jian Ren. Qin Jian Ren was about to rape FL when ML arrived on time to save FL. ML got so angry that he beat Qin Jian Ren’s private parts. ML brought FL to his mother and told her that he wants her as his wife. The Empress told everyone that her staff save FL from drowning.
Qin Xiang Ning was very close with An Yan Ran. FL recalled in her past life that she was very close to Qin Xiang Ning. Qin Xiang Ning supposed to marry the crown prince but ended up as Kang Wang’s side consort because of what she did. Now, FL suspected that Qin Xiang Ning likes ML and was probably jealous of her. Qin Xiang Ning staged a fall into the lake hoping that ML will save her. Instead, it was Ning Wang that saved her. After that, the Emperor gives Qin Xiang Ning to Ning Wang as his main wife.
A distance relative of An Granny came to visit. She is Shen Bi Yun, cousin sister to An Zhong Tao. She is a widow with a young son called Qin You Zhu. An Granny plotted to get An Zhong Tao to take Shen Bi Yun as his concubine. Shen Bi Yun tried all kinds of methods to make An Zhong Tao notice her and even tried to seduce him. One day, Lian Jin Yu went to see An Granny to discuss a potential marriage prospect for Shen Bi Yun. Qin You Zhu ran in and pushed Lian Jin Yu to the floor. Lian Jin Yu went into labour after the fall. The doctor said he can only save either the mother or the baby. When An Zhong Tao heard that, he could not decides as he wants to save both. FL walked into the room and insisted that she can save both her mom and brother. FL did it.
After the birth of her brother (An Ming Chen), FL begged her father to release Lian Jin Rong from her room. FL wants Lian Jin Rong to handle Shen Bi Yun while her mom is in confinement. An Zhong Tao does not seem to reject Shen Bi Yun. He could not bring himself to tell Lian Jin Yu that he wants Shen Bi Yun to become his concubine.
When FL noticed that Shen Bi Yun did not want to give up her idea to marry An Zhong Tao, FL wrote a letter to Shen Bi Yun’s mother in law to tell her of Shen Bi Yun’s intention to remarry.
Rumours spread to the public that FL entered the labour room to save her mother and brother. Shu Gui Fei suggested to the emperor to invite FL to treat the Empress, who was very sick. FL found out that the Empress was about to die. FL asked ML to help her send a letter to her master for a solution. During this time, the poison in ML attacked again and coincidentally, FL managed to draw out most of the poison from his body. When FL received the reply from her master, she discussed the treatment plan with the Empress. The proposed treatment can only extend the Empress’ life for another 6 months. After that, she will die suddenly. The Empress agreed. After the Empress recovers, she hinted to the Emperor to give FL to ML. The Emperor agreed but then hesitated when Kang Wang came to him asking him to give FL as his main wife. The emperor did not want his sons to fight over a woman hence decided to give FL to Dong Fang Run instead. ML managed to stop the edict from being delivered and went to seek help from the Empress.
Shen Bi Yun’s mother in law turned up during Shen Bi Yun’s birthday and asked to bring Qin You Zhu home. Shen Bi Yun begged An Granny for help as she wants to stay on. When An Ming Chen got poisoned, the nanny pointed her finger at Shen Bi Yun. Shen Bi Yun found out that it was actually An Granny who did it and warned An Zhong Tau before she left An mansion. FL also found out the truth. Unfortunately, the witness got poisoned and could not talk anymore.
After Shen Bi Yun left, came another distant relative of An Granny. It is An Granny’s grand-nephew (Shen Zhi Hua) with his mother (Fang Shi) and his sister (Shen Zhi Yun). Fang Shi tried match-make FL with Shen Zhi Hua using dirty tactics but her plan got thwarted by FL.
An Ming Chen got targeted again. When there was a plague spreading the country, An Ming Chen got sick and presented the symptoms of being infected. FL and An Ming Chen left An Mansion when there was a royal edict to quarantine those who were sick at a medical centre. FL managed to find a prescription to save An Ming Chen. She also found out the cause of how An Ming Chen got infected. ML went to see FL secretly at night. FL was very touched as ML is the only person that was not afraid of being infected.
FL and An Ming Chen returned to An mansion after he recovered. FL’s face has lots of spots and pimples after drinking the soup prepared by Lin Jin Rong. The spots was so bad that almost disfigured her face. FL started to collect evidence to present to An Zhong Tau on how An Ming Chen got infected. Lin Jin Rong got punished with death at last.
ML came to see FL when he heard about her condition. ML asked FL to be his wife but got rejected. FL told him her reason. ML said FL will be his only wife. FL was very touched and said she will consider. Fang Shi said that her family would still willing to accept FL as their daughter in law despite the scars on her face. The proposal got rejected by Lian Jin Yu. Kang Wang came to visit FL as well. Kang Wang also said he does not mind her disfigurement. The next day, FL put on a bit of poison on her pimples to make it worse. FL purposely revealed her face to Kang Wang. Kang Wang got repulsed with what he saw and stop visiting FL. FL got more headache when Lian Mu Han and his parents came to propose marriage to FL.
ML went to see the Emperor to discuss his wish to marry FL. Everyone surprised that the Emperor agreed. An Granny worried that her plan may get affected once FL married into the royal family.
An Granny suggested to An Zhong Tao to put An Ming Bo into his family genealogy book as his firstborn giving the excuse that An Ming Chen is too young to help FL when she entered the royal family. An Zhong Tao does not agree but did not want to reject his mother yet hence said he will think about it. An Granny forced her idea on An Zhong Tao during a family dinner. Luckily, An Zhong Tao rejected the proposal. FL suspected that An Granny is the not the biological mother of An Zhong Tao. FL investigated her suspicion and told her dad. Both An Zhong Tao and FL put on a show to instigate An Granny to confess her crime at last. An Granny used hunger strike to force An Zhong Tao to give up the General’s Mansion. If An Granny dies, all his sons will need to leave their government job and mourn for 3 years. When An Ming Bo passed the imperial examination, An Granny stopped her hunger strike at last. When An Zhong Yuan received a new residence from the government, he moved out with family without An Granny. An Zhong Yuan’s wife had a fight with An Granny before and An Zhong Yuan wants to keep the harmony between his own family hence left An Granny behind.
The Empress came out with an excuse to speed up the wedding of FL and ML even though she has reached her coming up age ceremony. FL said she will not consummate her marriage with ML until she reaches 14 years old. She also discussed with ML that they will only have a baby a few years later after her body matures more.
The Empress Dowager returned to the palace from Wu Tai Mountain. She has a personal maid called Mu Rong Lan Xi who purposely instigated that FL was not suitable to become ML’s wife because of her disfigurement. FL has no other choices but to show her recovered face to everyone. When Kang Wang saw her face, he got very angry because FL lied to him. Empress Dowager accused FL of lying to the Emperor on her disfigurement. ML stepped in to explain that FL’s face just recovered a few days ago. ML did not want everyone to see how beautiful FL is hence he asked FL to cover her face. The Empress is very happy to see ML protecting his wife.
The Empress poisoned herself and passed the blame to Shu Gui Fei. When the Empress was about to die, she begged the Emperor to pardon Shu Gui Fei due to lack of proof. The Empress told FL that she is doing this for her, as she does not want people to put the blame on FL because of her earlier treatment. Secondly, she wants the Emperor to feel guilty that he will protect ML after her death.
During the FL’s wedding party, Kang Wang and An Yan Ran started an illicit love affair. They continued their affair until one day, An Yan Ran told Kang Wang that she is pregnant. Kang Wang asked An Yan Ran to abort the baby since they are not married yet. But An Yan Ran does not agree and tell An Zhong Tao. An Zhong Tao got very angry with An Yan Ran for what she did. An Yan Ran is still his daughter, hence he has no other choice but to go to Shu Gui Fei for a decision. Shu Gui Fei has become the unfavoured consort of the Emperor after the Empress’ death. Shu Gui Fei was thinking that a new grandson might get the Emperor to come out from his grief. Hence she allows An Yan Ran to move into Kang Wang’s residence but without any wedding ceremony until the mourning period is over.
The Empress Dowager asks the Emperor to promote Shu Gui Fei as the new Empress and this suggestion angers the Emperor. The Emperor said to himself that he will promote anyone except for Shu Gui Fei. In order to keep the peace within the consorts, he asked Xian Fei (Dong Fang Yan’s mother) to take over the administration of the palace.
During the coming age party, FL got tricked to meet with Dong Fang Run. Luckily, she brought Lou Wan Yue with her. When they got there, all of them fainted. A short while later, Shu Gui Fei and Xian Fei arrived planning to catch an illicit couple and got shocked to see Dong Fan Run and Lou Wan Yue instead. FL got taken away by ML. When the emperor got to know about them, he bestows Lou Wan Yue to Dong Fang Run.
The Emperor started to pass on more work to Ning Wang resulted in the shift of supporters from Kang Wang to Ning Wang. After Kang Wang married An Ruo Yue, Ning Wang also married Qin Xiang Ning immediately after he found out that Qin Xiang Ning is pregnant with his baby.
Ning Wang is just like Kang Wang, equally licentious. Qin Xiang Ning seems smarter than An Yan Ran. After Qing Xiang Ning confirmed her pregnancy is stable, to prevent Ning Wang from visiting his concubines, she seduced Ning Wang to sleep with her.
During the birthday party in the palace, Shu Gui Fei plotted a food poisoning incident hoping that the emperor will blame Xian Fei for her mismanagement and pass the administration of the palace to her. The emperor asked FL to manage instead. Shu Gui Fei got upset and so is the Empress Dowager.
Murong Lan Xi organised a birthday party in the palace. FL got a bit tipsy and wants to go home early. ML wants to escort FL but got stopped by Lian Mu Han. When FL got back to her palace, she realised she got drugged and has no energy. She got more anxious when she saw Kang Wang in her bedroom. Kang Wang almost managed to rape FL but luckily Dong Fang Run appeared to save her. In the meantime, ML was also drunk and asked to go home. Lian Mu Han wanted to escort ML but got called away to see the Empress Dowager. Murong Lan Xi volunteered to escort ML. Mu Rong Lan Xi almost managed to get ML to sleep with her. ML realised that he got drugged and in a moment of consciousness, he stopped himself when he realised that the woman was Murong Lan Xi. ML left in anger.
When ML got back to his palace, FL noticed that ML got drugged just like her hence they decided to consummate their marriage that night. ML sent his people to beat up Kang Wang. He also beat up Lian Mu Han and told him what happened the night before. ML warned Murong Lan Xi to stop scheming on him in future.
There was a rumour spread in the palace that FL did not consummate her marriage with ML and ML is impotent. The Empress Dowager accused FL of lying and wanted to punish her. Luckily, ML and the Emperor arrived on time. The Emperor told the Empress Dowager that he knows all about ML and FL not consummating their marriage on the first night. Once again the Empress Dowager lost her chance to hurt FL.
One day, ML has another poison attack. FL found out that a new poison had triggered the old poison in ML’s body. This, in fact, turned into an opportunity for FL to clear the poison once and for all. After ML recovered, FL asked ML think what could have triggered the poison. The suspect turned into the Empress Dowager. ML and FL put on a show that ML is on the verge of dying to trick the hidden enemy to come out. They caught Murong Lan Xi. But Murong Lan Xi was only a scapegoat and eventually got killed by the Empress Dowager. ML and the Emperor confronted the Empress Dowager her motive to kill her own grandchild.
FL and ML continued their investigation and found out the Empress Dowager’s real motive. Many years ago, the Empress Dowager and last Emperor were very much in love. One day, the Emperor got drunk and accidentally slept with the Empress Dowager’s maid. The maid got promoted to Wan Consort once she was found out to be pregnant after that one night. Half a month later, the Empress Dowager was also pregnant. Both went into labour at the same time. Wan Consort knows that the Empress Dowager will not let her live hence she asked her maid to pass her son to the Empress Dowager for custody. Wan Consort died after that. The maid worried that the Empress Dowager may harm the baby hence she switched the babies without anyone knowing. The Empress Dowager only found out the truth after the Wan Consort’s son become the Emperor. Hence the Empress Dowager was planning with Shou Wang Ye to revolt to take back the throne.
An Yan Ran had a difficult labour and requested FL to save her. FL said she can only save one person. An Yan Ran asked FL to save her baby instead. An Yan Ran gave birth to a baby boy. But the baby is very weak and may not live long as well. At the point of dying, An Yan Ran asked FL why she hated her so much. FL said it was due to the evil deeds in her past life. After An Yan Ran died, there was a fight between Kang Wang’s other wives for the rights to look after the baby prince.
Qin Xiang Ning’s active sex lives caused her to miscarry. Her baby died in her womb. During a party, Qin Xiang Ning purposely falls and blame it on FL. The Empress Dowager wants to punish FL and once again stopped by the Emperor and ML. Qin Xiang Ning confessed that she fell on her own after she found out that ML had captured her treating doctor and will to tell the truth if she continues to blame FL.
ML and FL went to the temple and got ambushed by assassins. They got rescued by Dong Fang Run. Kang Wang directed the assassination but all the clues pointed at Ning Wang. Ning Wang got punished and sent away to another province far away from the capital. Ning Wang is not very smart and got tricked by the Empress Dowager to use him to go against the Emperor.
When Lei Tian Guo attacked Dong Ze Guo, An Zhong Tao sent to defend the country but he got poisoned during his mission. ML did not want the military power pass to Kang Wang hence he volunteered to help An Zhong Tao. They won the war. Lie Tian Guo wants to form an alliance proposing marriages between their prince and princess. Princess Lei Tian Zhu wants to marry ML. The Emperor sent an edict to give Dong Fang Ruo Xue to Prince Lei Tian Wei. Lian Mu Han went to FL for help. FL came out with an idea. During a party at the palace, Prince Lei Tian Wei cannot wait to see Dong Fang Ruo Xue but got shocked when he saw a pot-marked face of Dong Fang Ruo Xue. He asked ML to tell the Emperor that he does not want Dong Fan Ruo Xue and want to pick his own wife. On another hand, Princess Lei Tian Zhu misled into believing that Dong Fang Ye was the crown prince and got into a compromising situation. This resulted in Princess Lei Tian Zhu to marry Kang Wang as his main wife instead.
The concubines in An Zhong Tao’s family is getting a bit out of control. An Ming Xuan hurt his brother, An Ming Chen. FL decided to stay on after she got to know the truth. FL exposed the truth about the birth of An Ming Xuan. After the birth of An Yan Ran, Lian Jin Rong got into an affair with the housekeeper when An Zhong Tao was away on a mission. Lian Jin Rong managed to convince An Zhong Tao that An Ming Xuan is a premature baby.
When FL left her parent’s home, she got abducted by Dong Fang Run. Dong Fang Run told FL that Empress Dowager already announced to the world that the Emperor is not the biological son of the earlier Emperor. FL tried running away and went into a premature labour. She gave birth to a baby boy. FL got captured again by Dong Fang Run. The Empress Dowager secretly abducted FL away from Dong Fang Run. She planned to use FL to threaten ML and the Emperor. ML hatched a plan to save FL and his baby. Dong Fang Run got injured trying to block an arrow shot at FL. Dong Fang Run’s body was not found. The Empress Dowager got captured and sent back to the palace. Shou Wang’s family got locked up.
Two years later…
ML found Dong Fang Run at last but he has lost his memories. FL went with Lou Wan Yue to meet with Dong Fang Run. Dong Fang Run has married a merchant’s daughter called Zhong Ming Er and she is now pregnant with their child. Life back at Shou Wang is not peaceful anymore. Zhong Ming Er is a jealous girl and started to throw different tantrums to attract Dong Fang Run’s attention. Lou Wan Yue remained quiet even when she got bullied and kept all the hurt and sadness to herself. Zhong Ming Er arranged for her sister, Zhong Ling Er to stay at the Shou Mansion. At first, Zhong Ming Er wants her sister to become Dong Fang Run’s concubine but then she changed her mind. After Zhong Ling Er met ML, she told her sister that she wants to enter the palace to join the consort selection.
Dong Fang Ye went to meet with Lei Tien Wei and told by the Lei Tian Guo’s astrologer (Za Ru Wa) that he is supposed to be an Emperor and Lei Yue Zhu as Empress. Za Ru Wa looked into the destiny of ML and FL. Za Ru Wa said if they destroy FL, then the destiny of ML will change. Za Ru Wa used the bone remnants of An Yan Ran and Lian Jin Rong to create a black magic to harm FL.
FL got pregnant again but this time she gets tired very easily. FL is having nightmares that seem too real until it affected her health. ML pressured to appoint more concubines and consorts. ML refused to do that. FL was asked to persuade ML. When FL got to know that ML’s refusal has caused the instability in the government, she agreed that ML should start the consort selection.
FL wrote to her master about her health situation. Jun Ting came with his fiancee (Hua Ke Ren). Hua Ke Ren said FL got invaded by a bad spirit. FL went to Yue Hua Temple to see Le Kong Monk. Le Kong Monk asked FL to go on a vegetarian fast for 49 days. But her fasting got tampered by Zhong Ling Er who got selected as a 5th-grade consort. As punishment, Zhong Ling Er got beaten 20 lashes.
Zhong Ming Er had a difficult childbirth. During this time, Dong Fang Run’s memories recovered. Zhong Ming Er and her baby did not survive. Dong Fang Run regretted his past action and slowly started to amend his relationship with Lou Wan Yue.
After FL gave birth to a pair of twins, she went into a coma. Her soul is floating around the palace. She can see and heard the people around her but they cannot see her or hear what she said. ML stays next to FL all the time and ignored everything around him. Kang Wang asked to take over the ruling temporarily. ML got haggard and his health also got affected. One day, FL woke up suddenly. The spell broke when ML hit his head and his blood dropped on FL.
Kang Wang revolted after the black magic did not work. Kang Wang got captured and his title got taken away and banished to the border.
