There are many good songs in this audiobook. The story is also very different. Mystical but not the xian xia type.
FL (A Heng) went out with the Crown Prince (Yao Shan) and met with an assassination. FL went missing. Yao Shan got injured heavily and lost his memories. When he woke up, he heard that the empress dowager wants to punish the Yu’s family. Yao Shan also heard that his fiancee is Ms Yu hence he purposely requested for FL to prevent the empress dowager from killing the Yu family. Yu Zhi, the younger sister of FL pretended as A Heng and went to serve Yao Shan. They fell in love with each other. FL got saved and came back to look for her family. When she saw Yao Shan on the street, she ran towards him and hugged him. FL shocked that she got pushed away. FL’s mother locked her in her room and explained the reason for doing so. The doctor who treated FL has told her that she cannot be too emotional otherwise she will not live beyond 3 years. After Yao Shan rejected FL, she fell sick and told that she will not live pass winter. This happened within 3 months, so much earlier than what she was told before. FL requested to meet Yao Shan again. FL felt very hurt when Yao Shan said the past does not matter and even if Yu Zhi lied to him, it does not matter to him. Yu Zhi suggested FL took over her place as Yao Shan’s bride. Yu Zhi also gave FL the drug that can help Yao Shan to recover his memories. Yu Zhi warned FL not to let Yao Shan sees her face before he drinks the drug. Unfortunately, it did not go according to plan. Yao Shan did not drink the drug and FL died that night.
When FL woke up next to a naked man called Lian Mu. Lian Mu said he picked FL up from a luan zhang gang (mass grave) and made her into a “Mei Shen” (something like a ghost). FL lost her memories. Lian Mu used jade to make the bone and ice to make her skin. Lian Mu left FL without telling her how to survive being a Mei Shen. FL later met an old nun and followed her back to the temple. The nun used FL eat away the pain of all the rich girls’ heartache due to love and then influenced them to enter the nunnery. This way, their families will start to donate money to the temple to support their livelihood.
FL met a man called Fu Yu. Fu Yu said FL looks very familiar to the girl that he knew before. The government official started to investigate the temple’s activities and motives. The old nun chased FL away to avoid being implicated. Fu Yu threatened the old nun to give a large sum of money to FL. Thereafter, FL left with Fu Yu.
Lian Mu had once asked FL to do 3 things for him after he helped her to re-live. Lian Mu asked FL to find a girl called Yu Zhi to eat away her love. Lian Mu said he made FL’s face based on Yu Zhi. Lian Mu is a gay and claimed that Yu Zhi took his lover away. When Lian Mu bumped into Fu Yu and FL, he introduced himself as FL’s husband as a joke.
FL decided to go to Jiang Nan. When they reached a hotel at Jiang Nan, Fu Yu only requested for one room. Fu Yu said he needs to go out to look for food for FL. FL went alone to the famous brothel to look for a sad love story that she can eat. FL accidentally got into a room of a man having sex with a prostitute. Suddenly Fu Yu appeared and took FL away. Fu Yu warned FL not to enter another man’s bedroom in future.
Fu Yu thought of an idea to help FL. He organised a stall for people to come forward to share their sad story but these are not what FL was looking for. FL met a rich girl called Jiang Se Se. Jiang Se Se (JSS) fell in love with a man called Liu Yi Jun but Liu Yi Jun loves another woman called Fu Zhi. FL offered to take away JSS’s heartache but JSS hesitated. Liu Yi Jun is not the real Liu Yi Jun that JSS fell in love before. Liu Yi Jun also requested FL to eat JSS’s love for Liu Yi Jun. FL met Fu Zhi who is a yin yang doctor. FL later met Xia Ban Shen, Fu Zhi’s disciple brother.
Xia Ban Sheng told FL that he met her 8 years ago. Xia Ban Sheng (XBS) treated FL when she fell from the ravine. FL and Fu Yu went to Xia Ban Sheng’s home to help his mother who has lived with regret for the past 20 years. FL ate Mrs Xia’s love story. Fu Yu left. XBS asked FL to pretend as his fiancée to make his mother happy so that she can die in peace. Fu Yu came back a few days later to tell FL that he found her parents and asked whether she wants to meet them. FL refused to meet them. After Fu Yu left, Mrs Xia’s health improved and XBS asked FL to marry him in pretence. Fu Yu went to see FL secretly. FL thought Fu Yu left for good and surprised to see him. Fu Yu said he came back after he heard about her upcoming wedding. Fu Yu asked Wan Xi (Fu Yu’s assistant) to switch role with FL. On the wedding day, Wang Xi told FL how she met Fu Yu and Yu Heng. FL asked Wan Xi about Yu Zhi. Wan Xi told FL to find out on her own at the brothel.
FL stole some face paints from XBS’s room and disguised herself as a man before she went to the brothel. When the Yu family got punished, Yu Zhi got sold to the brothel. Yu Zhi changed her name to Yu Ling Long. A man took Yu Zhi out from the brothel but Yu Zhi went back to the brothel again. The man continued to buy Yu Zhi out a few times until he became broke.
FL bumped into a group nuns she met at the temple on her way back from the brothel. The nuns were very angry at FL and they tied FL up to abuse. They pour waters at FL knowing that she is afraid of water because her skin made of ice. They also forced a bowl of spoilt food into her throat and then threw her into a tub of boiling water. FL thought she was going to die and suddenly, she got pulled out by Fu Yu. The nuns got tied up and thrown in the prison.
FL woke up one month later and saw XBS. Her nails have turned very pale and Fu Yu offered FL to eat a bit of his love story. After FL ate Fu Yu’s love story, her nails turned back to red colour. FL noticed something very wrong with Fu Yu. Fu Yu used make-up to cover up his sickness but assured FL that he is fine. One day, FL said she wants to go to the tea room to hear the story about Ming Yu’s crown prince. Fu Yu said he can tell her the story instead.
Ming Yu Crown Prince’s fiancee was found sleeping with the prince’s elder brother hence the engagement got cancelled. Not too long after that, the crown prince met another girl that he likes. The emperor noticed that his son put too much feelings into the relationship with the girl hence he arranged an assassination on the girl. The crown prince did not know the assassin’s target was the girl. When the girl went missing, the crown prince fell sick. The crown prince blamed himself for the death of the girl.
Fu Yu told FL that he needs to leave for a while to settle some urgent family matters. Fu Yu asked Wan Xi to stay back to protect FL. Mrs Xia got very sick and asked to see FL. Mrs Xia asked FL whether she loves XBS and when she did not get a definite answer from FL, she asked FL to leave XBS soonest possible. After Mrs Xia passed away, FL left with Wan Xi. FL decided to go to Jin Ling to look for Yu Zhi.
FL pretended as Yu Zhi to get the real Yu Zhi to appear. Yu Zhi came and took FL away. Yu Zhi lives in a brothel on a ship. Yu Zhi said she will release FL after FL helped her to eat away Feng Zhao Chen’s love.
FL pretended to be Yu Zhi to meet with Feng Zhao Chen (FZC). FZC knew FL was not Yu Zhi. FZC fell in love with Yu Zhi when she was still the 2nd missus of the Yu family. At that time, FZC has no money or background to marry Yu Zhi. FZC only admired Yu Zhi from far. When the Yu family got punished, FZC did not mind that Yu Zhi was no longer a virgin and took her out from the brothel. FZC decided to marry Yu Zhi despite being kicked out from his family. For the past 8 years, FZC followed Yu Zhi everywhere. When FZC got to know that FL is a Mei Shen, he left immediately. FL assured FZC that she will not eat his love story without his permission.
After FZC, FL asked whether the Yu family tragedy has any implication on the Shang Guan Wan Xi’s family. Yu Zhi asked about Fu Yu. FL lied to say that she has not met Fu Yu. Wan Xi suddenly appeared. Yu Zhi asked FL how long she has been a Mei Shen. FL answered that it has been more than 7 years. Yu Zhi warned FL careful of Fu Yu because he has an ulterior motive to be close to her.
One morning, FL woke up and saw Fu Yu smiling at her. While FL was changing her clothes, she overheard a conversation through a small hole hidden at the back of a painting. Fu Yu questioned Yu Zhi’s intention of keeping FL with her. Yu Zhi admitted that she was jealous of her sister since young. Her family told everyone about Yu Zhi’s talent and beauty intended to use Yu Zhi for marriage alliance but kept Yu Heng’s talent and beauty a secret to protect her. Yu Zhi got very angry that she has to sacrifice her own happiness for the Yu’s family. Yu Zhi recalled how they forced her to pretend as her sister to marry Yao Shan. Yu Zhi said it broke her heart when she saw her own lover got beaten. When Yu Heng came home, she was happy for her and yet she also hated her. Yu Zhi managed to find the antidote to pass to her sister. Unfortunately, Yu Heng failed to give it to Yao Shan.
Fu Yu argued that it was a plot arranged by Yu Zhi as she would have known that the groom and the bride will only drink the wedding wine after the scarf lifted. Yu Zhi already predicted Yao Shan’s reaction when he saw Yu Heng. Yu Zhi did that to take revenge against Yao Shan and Yu Heng. Yu Zhi said after the wedding incident, they brought her to a dungeon and she saw her lover’s dead body. The Empress Dowager said it was to punish Yu Zhi for not following her instruction. Yu Zhi’s parents got tied up for three days. Yu Zhi fainted and after she woke up, she laid naked next to a few men. After that, Yu Zhi offered to go to the military whorehouse. She blamed herself for causing the tragedy hence decided to prostitute herself as of way of redemption. Yu Zhi said she has repaid the debts that she owed to Yu Heng and the family. Yu Zhi questioned Fu Yu what about him? Has he repaid his debt to Yu Heng and her family? Fu Yu threatened if Yu Zhi ever tells everything to FL, he will make sure her lover will not reincarnate.
Fu Yu asked FL to follow him to the capital city but FL hesitated. At last, Fu Yu decided to leave first and said he will collect her once he settled his problem.
Yu Zhi asked FL to leave but FL refused. FL told Yu Zhi that Lian Mu asked her to eat Yu Zhi’s love story. Yu Zhi asked FL to check first the love story in her body and FL found nothing. This only means the love has seeped into the body too deeply until it was impossible to erase it anymore. Yu Zhi asked FL to take away FZC’s love instead. Yu Zhi said she has invited a Mei Shen to erase her the love before but it was not successful. Yu Zhi said she is going to die soon. That is why she can sense when she sees a Mei Shen. Yu Zhi said she knows FL is her sister even though FL kept denying that she is Yu Heng.
FL left Yu Zhi at last and met Lian Mu on the way. Lian Mu told FL that Yu Zhi has passed away after she left. FZC killed himself after Yu Zhi died. Lian Mu took her to a remote house and asked her to eat his love story. Lian Mu also passed on a letter from Yu Zhi to FL. In the letter, Yu Zhi asked FL to kill Yao Shan/Fu Yu’s side consort called Mu Die, who is the daughter of a general. Mu Die fed the lost memory drug to Yao Shan and also instigated the Empress Dowager to attack the Yu Family.
FL met Xia Ban Shen again. XBS noticed that FL got poisoned. FL suspected that Fu Yu poisoned her. XBS explained that the poison will make FL feel like a human and once she got all the senses, she will die. Fu Yu (ML) revolted against his own father and became the new emperor.
FL sneaked into the palace and planning to take away Fu Yu’s love story. When she was about to finish, Fu Yu woke up and stopped FL. Fu Yu asked FL to return back some of his love stories. FL refused. ML noticed FL has recovered her memory. FL said she needs to kill Han Mu Die. ML tried to stop her thinking that FL is jealous. He quickly explained that he married Han Mu Die just to form an alliance but FL ignored him.
Han Mu Die at first thought FL was Yu Zhi until she said she is Yu Heng. Han Mu Die did not believe her as she saw Yu Heng died in front of her eyes. The truth came out at last. Han Mu Die and her father played a role in the dead of Yu Heng and elimination of the Yu family. FL did not kill Han Mu Die. ML heard everything while standing outside the room. ML worried that FL will leave him. ML kept FL with him and when he is not around, there were lots of guards to prevent her from running away.
FL also wants to kill the Empress Dowager but she knows if she was to do that, it will end her relationship with ML. ML took FL to see a mad woman in the palace. The woman is her mother. When FL and her mother was alone, her mother said she did it on purpose to act crazy. FL’s mother told her what had happened after their family got punished and how ML saved her but her father did not survive. FL’s mother asked FL not to do anything to Empress Dowager and said leave it to her to do it instead.
The Empress Dowager asked to meet with FL alone. The Empress Dowager told FL what happened to ML after the assassination attempt. She said FL is ML’s weak point and scolded FL for not realising her influence on ML. FL got stunned and could not defend herself knowing the truth.
FL’s mother set fire on Empress Dowager’s palace to kill the Empress Dowager and herself. FL’s mother wants to settle the debt without affecting the younger generation.
XBS came to the palace and brought to see FL’s actual body in the cold room. XBS surprised that ML managed to keep the body in good condition. They did not realise that FL followed them and saw the body as well.
XBS suggested a bet with FL to prove that ML does not love her as much as he claimed. A pregnant Fu Zhi came to the palace and claimed that the baby belongs to ML. FL did not believe it as she remembered she did not hear any sound while waiting outside the room when Fu Zhi was treating ML from the aphrodisiac poison. Fu Zhi confessed to FL that the baby does not belong to ML but she has put a spell on ML while she was treating him to make ML thinks that he had sex with Fu Zhi.
When ML saw Fu Zhi, he immediately acknowledged the baby belongs to him and appointed Fu Zhi as his new consort. FL got upset with ML and refused to see him. During this time, XBS continue to black mouth ML and told her that ML has a wife, who is bedridden. FL decided to leave ML and asked XBS for help. XBS said security is very tight hence it is better to move her soul into another new body to escape the palace. FL started to put in her request on how the body should look at. XBS show FL the body kept by ML and said this is the only body available.
XBS did the exchange and when FL woke up, she was already outside the palace. FL happy that she has all the five senses and asked about ML. XBS hinted that ML is going to die. FL ran back to the palace to see ML. FL realised that everything was planned by ML. Fu Zhi could not revive FL before because part of her soul got taken away by Lian Mu. When FL got back to the palace, the palace maid addressed her as Empress. FL looks everywhere for ML and found him in their wedding bedroom 8 years ago. ML has been waiting for her. ML wants to re-start everything from that point onwards. FL and ML have their belated wedding night at last.
