If you like 楚王妃 (Chu Wang Fei), you will like this story. The story is different and the only similarity is the FL’s soul came from the modern world and landed on a girl often bullied by her stepmother and sisters. FL’s revenge was not as bloody as in 庶女有毒 @ 锦绣未央 (Shù Nu You Dú @ Jinxiù Wèiyāng – The Concubine Daughter is Poisonous @ Princess Wei Young). FL is also much luckier than Chu Wang Fei. FL has an elder sister and father who truly loves her. FL’s granny in this story may sound selfish at the start of the story but she started to make amends for her mistakes towards mid of the story.
I like the Yi Jun Wang’s character and his grandfather. It reminded me of Chu Fei Yang and his grandfather in Chu Wang Fei.
FL (Mu Qing Yun) is the 3rd missus of the Mu’s family born by the main wife. FL’s mother passed away 15 years ago and ever since the death of her mother, she was bullied by the Madam Mu. Madam Mu jealous of FL’s mom as her husband still loves his first wife.
FL often punished to copy Buddhist Scriptures at the house’s temple. A few days ago, FL and her stepsisters went to Mu Shan Su Fu for a party. FL’s stepsister, Mu Qing Ruo was jealous of Ms Mu Qian Ran and purposely pushed FL to make Mu Qing Ru fall down. Mu Qing Ru’s injured her face and possibly will get a scar on her face. Mu Qing Ru’s mother went to see Old Madam Mu and Mrs Mu asking for compensation. Even though everyone knows that the fault lies with Mu Qing Ruo, nobody dares to say the truth and claimed that FL did it. FL got beaten with 20 lashes. FL ate dumpling hidden with the needles which lead to her throat injury that make her unable to talk. FL grounded at Fo Xiang Yuan Temple to copy Buddhist scripture every day. If she did not finish copying the scripture, she will not get to eat.
FL’s maternal grandfather, Old Master Jiang offended the emperor and got sacked. Master Mu (FL’s father) put in words on behalf of Old Master Jiang got reprimanded, hence he got demoted from Hou Fu to Bo Fu. Old Madam Mu got very angry with the Jiang’s family because of the demotion of her son’s position. In order to recover the Mu’s family status, Old Madam Mu sacrificed her first granddaughter, Mu Qing Ling (FL’s sister) to marry the Ding Guo Gong Fu’s young first master who was known to be a disabled.
FL has also reached a marriageable age hence old Madam Mu started to consider two marriage proposals. Both proposals were not ideal. One of them is a widow with two dead wives and the other is a famous playboy. When Old Master Jiang got to know the Old Madam Mu’s intention, he went to see Old Madam Mu. He proposed a marriage between FL and his grandson but rejected by Old Madam Mu. When Old Madam Mu decided to accept one of the proposals, a visitor from Zhen Nan Hou Fu came to propose a marriage between one of the young masters with FL. Madam Zhen Nan claimed that this agreement between Old Grandfather Jiang and Old Zhen Nan Master was made many years ago. Old Madam Mu agreed at last.
After Madam Zhen Nan left, Old Madam Mu found out that FL’s betrothal is the first young master of the Zhen Nan family. Old Madam Mu regretted her decision but FL’s stepsisters were all very happy hearing that. The 1st young master of Zhen Nan (Chu Bei) was an illegitimate child of the Zhen Nan family and has been sick since young and it was rumoured that he cannot see the light. Old Master Jiang complained to Old Master Zhen Nan that he picked Chu Bei as FL’s future husband. Old Master Zhen Nan said he will go home to sort out the issue and pick another grandson instead.
Old Master Zhen Nan sent his staff to sneak into the Mu’s residence to find out FL’s character. The staff went back with a piece of paper written with Buddhist sutra and another piece written with a poem. Old Master Zhen Nan likes FL based on her handwriting and thought of matching her with his 2nd grandson, Chu Yan. He then asked the servant what was FL doing at that time. The servant hesitated and then said FL was digging a dog hole. Old Master Zhen Nan laughed and went to see Old Master Jiang.
FL saw a man with a silver mask sneaked into her courtyard and fell down from the wall. FL checked his pulse and noticed that the man has multiple poisons in his body and based on her diagnosis, this man will not last 2 years. Suddenly, they heard people coming. It was Mu Qing Zhi, Mu Qing Ruo and Mu Qing Xue. When she turned back, the man already went missing.
Zhou Zhi Ting (ZZT), the granddaughter of Old Madam Mu stayed at the Mu Residence after the death of her mother, 3 years ago. FL and her sister, Mu Qing Ling stayed at Liu Yun Yuan, the courtyard assigned to daughters born by the main wife. But when ZZT insisted to stay at Liu Yun Yuan giving the excuse that it makes her feel closer to her mother, FL and Mu Qing Ling moved out and gave in to ZZT. Mu Qing Ruo is jealous as she did not get the chance to stay at Liu Yun Yuan herself being borne by Madam Mu.
Old Master Jiang went to see Old Madam Mu and FL to tell the bad news of not able to change the husband candidate picked by Zhen Nan Hou Fu. Old Master Jiang said Old Master Zhen Nan insisted to match FL with Chu Bei and if he disagreed, Old Master Zhen Nan will go to the Empress to ask for an imperial edict. Old Master Zhen Nan agreed to increase the dowry by 3 times and agreed to help An Ding Bo Fu to restore to Hou Fu status. Old Madam Mu surprised that Old Master Zhen Nan thinks so highly of FL. When Old Master Jiang came out from Old Madam Mu’s room he passed a few pieces of paper to FL and advised her not to dig dog hole anymore.
When ML (Chu Bei) woke up, he saw a footprint on his clothes. ML’s staff (Wei Feng & Wei Lu) told him everything that FL did to him. ML’s staff impressed with FL’s bravery and her medical skill. Old Master Zhen Nan came to see ML to tell him about the betrothal. ML said he cannot marry because of his sickness but Old Master Zhen Nan insisted that ML’s sickness can be treated.
FL followed her stepsisters to Qi Xia Temple to pray. When FL got there, Mu Qing Rou purposely dirtied FL’s skirt. FL’s sister left her in the horse carriage and asked her to wait for them there. Someone threw a package into the carriage. In the package, there were two sets of new clothing bought at the nearby shop and a letter requesting FL to treat Chu Bei. FL’s stepsisters were not happy to see FL in her new clothes. FL created a story to cover up the origin of the clothes. The girls bumped into their cousins, Mu Qian Ran and Mu Qian Jiao. FL also met Princess Ruo Yao and they became good friends.
The girls went to the temple hall and tried their luck on the oracle sticks. FL got two oracle sticks at the same time. When the young monk explained the meaning of the oracle sticks, the old monk stopped him. The old monk commented that FL did not do it properly hence she got two oracle sticks at the same time. Everyone laughed at FL.
Mu Qing Ling (MQL) had a miscarriage. Madam Ding Guo blamed MQL for not conceiving hence she arranged for a maid to sleep with MQL’s husband. When MQL saw that, she ran from the room and bumped into another maid. When she started to have stomach pain, it was already too late. MQL found that she was pregnant and miscarried. FL checked MQL’s pulse and noticed that MQL is very weak and even if she did not fall, chances of miscarriage still high. After knowing MQL’s weak health, Madam Ding Guo wants to give her son, Gu Ming Chuan a new concubine.
FL checked GMC’s pulse and asked whether he has hit his head before. He said yes when he was 15 years old. GMC has also hurt his spine. GMC surprised that FL seems to know everything about his medical condition. FL took out a packet of acupuncture needles. MQL tried to stop FL but GMC said to let her try. GMC thought FL was going to poke on his leg but it was on his head instead. After FL poke three needles, Madam Ding Guo dashed in to stop FL. FL asked them to stop scolding until she finished poking all the needles on GMC. Madam Ding Guo asked the servants to throw FL out. FL kicked GMC and he yelled pain. GMC asked the servant to stop as he has started to have feelings on his leg. Madam Ding Guo immediately changed her mind and started to beg FL to treat GMC. FL forced Madam Ding Guo to promise not to give GMC any concubine in return for her help to treat GMC.
When FL got home, she heard that Mu Qing Ruo broke a bottle from the dowry from the Zhen Nan Gong Fu. The bottle consists of Chu Bei’s blood that FL asked to use to test the type of poison. Madam Ding Guo came shortly to see Old Madam Mu to explain the miscarriage of Mu Qing Ling. The bottle seems expensive and Madam Ding Guo confirmed that. Old Madam Mu asked Madam Mu to go to Zhen Nan Gong Fu to apologise.
When FL got back to her courtyard, Wei Feng came to see her. FL saw Wei Feng has bruises and said that Chu Bei beat him and asked FL why she broke the bottle. FL said the bottle broke by Mu Qing Rou and not by her as claimed by Madam Mu. FL got angry that her name got darkened again. FL said she needs another bottle of blood to find out the types of poison even though she knows it will be very taxing on ML’s body.
Wei Fu came back again later with another bottle of blood. FL said the result will come out within a few hours. When Wei Fu got back to Jin Mo Ju, ML woke up. That night, ML decided to try the proposed treatment plan by FL. The treatment cleared 1/3 of the poison in his body.
A few days later, ML sneaked into FL’s study room and saw another man there. He asked Wei Feng beat the man up. ML instructed his guard to throw the man out the An Ding Po Fu. The man is GMC’s brother. He sneaked in to meet FL to ask about his brother’s treatment. ML got jealous and have him beaten up.
FL asked to escort Mu Qing Rou to the peach blossom party and then create an excuse to return to home. When FL got there, they asked her to stay on. The organiser arranged a game where all the single women and men went to Peach Blossom garden to pick their clue to showcase their talent. FL has no intention to compete but received a clue given by a handsome man. When the man tried to take away a fallen petal on her hair, ML suddenly appeared to stop him. The man is ML’s twin brother.
When FL walked back to her seat, she noted that the emperor, empress and Yan Gui Fei have arrived. FL tried to sneak back to her seat quietly but everyone turned their heads towards her when a girl purposely crashes a plate near where FL stood FL has no other choice but to pay her respect to the Emperor. Yan Gui Fei purposely made fun FL.
All the single women and men performed based on the clue that they picked. Yan Gui Fei suggested that points to being given and whoever that got the highest point can ask for a wish from the Emperor. When it was FL’s turn, she surprised everyone by playing the zither instead of painting based on the clue she received. FL immediately knew that someone purposely tried to cause trouble. FL played the zither based on a song that she knew from her modern life. ML suddenly came and dance with his sword to complement the music. The Empress got so emotional listening to the music until she vomited blood and fainted. Everyone blamed it on FL. ML pushed the blame away and directed it at Yan Gui Fei instead. It was the first time that ML saw how anxious the Emperor was towards the Empress.
When the Empress woke up, she gave FL full points for her performance and made her the winner of the competition. ML hinted to FL to ask for the revival of An Ding Bo Fu to Hou Fu status. All the ministers objected when they heard FL’s request. FL suggested an idea hoping to pacify all the ministers. FL came out with one line of poetry and whoever that can come out with the second line of the poetry to match it within 3 days, she will cancel her request.
When FL got home, she got scolded by Madam Mu. FL lashed out at last, why she did it as she got tired of being blamed for being the grandchild of Old Master Jiang. That night, there was an assassination attempt on FL’s life but luckily she got saved by the secret guards sent by ML. The assassination was due to the two oracle sticks that she picked.
The next morning, Princess Ruo Yao came tot he Mu Residence to meet with FL. Ruo Yao said her mother wanted to see FL before her meeting with the Empress. At Ning Wang Fu, Ning Wang Fei asked FL to re-play the music score that she played the day before. Ning Wang Fei advised FL not to share the music score with anymore and she can tell whoever that asked that it was her instruction. Ning Wang Fei passed a letter to FL telling her that it came from Old Master Zhen Nan. When FL opened the letter, it addressed to Ning Wang Fei. When Ning Wang Fei opened the letter, only one sentence appeared to ask FL to treat Ning Wang Fei. FL immediately checked on Ning Wang Fei’s pulse and then said that she can help Ning Wang Fei to protect her pregnancy.
FL went to meet the Empress with Princess Ruo Yao. On the way, FL saw a man riding on a horse who looks like the emperor. The Empress asked FL the reading of the Oracle sticks. They got interrupted by Yan Gui Fei claiming to look for the Emperor. A maid came in to say that the Emperor got injured. FL and Princess Ruo Yao went to see the Emperor. Before FL entered the room, a Eunuch said four-letter words to FL. The Emperor thanked FL for sending her guard to save him. The Emperor asked what FL wants as rewards. FL said she wants the “Mian Si Jin Pai” (a death pardon seal). Before the Emperor says yes, the Empress Dowager came with Yan Gui Fei to stop it.
FL did not get the Mian Si Jin Pai but got rewarded with something else. On the way home, FL’s horse carriage met with an accident. After ML saved FL, he fainted. When FL wants to check on ML’s pulse, the bodyguard stopped her. When FL got back to her room, ML was already there. FL angry that the bodyguard did not allow her to treat him earlier. The bodyguard said they do not want other people to know that ML can be treated. After FL completed her treatment on ML, she warned ML not to use his martial arts otherwise he will die.
ML told FL the story about the scars on the emperor’s body. When the Emperor was young, he used to follow the Grand Emperor and Old Master Zhen Nan to war. The Emperor was very good in the war tactics. Nobody knows what happened 19 years ago when the Emperor suddenly wanted to kill himself. The Emperor purposely went to battle without an armour. The emperor got sent back to the capital. When the Grand Emperor passed away, he passed on the throne to the Emperor. ML said no one knows what caused the Emperor to have a sudden change in his behaviour.

Yi Jun Wang also spread a rumour saying that he has fallen in love with FL and if he cannot marry her, he will enter monkhood. An Jun Wang is the favourite grandchild of the Empress Dowager. ML knows that the Empress Dowager will force FL to marry An Jun Wang, ML asked the Emperor to pass an imperial edict for his marriage with FL but got rejected. When the Empress Dowager did not get her way, she passed an edict to say that FL is a beauty that brings calamity to the country hence she is punished with death. The plan got thwarted by ML eventually. An Jun Wang and Yi Jun Wang admitted that it was just a game that they played to see who will win. Both were instructed to pay compensation to FL and ML and punished to clean the horse shit at the military camp. ML gave his reward back to Yi Jun Wang.
Yi Jun Wang and ML friendship went back all the way when they were children. Yi Jun Wang knows that ML and the prince are twins and also their history. ML saved Yi Jun Wang once hence their relationship is as close as blood brothers.
The marriage between FL and ML got scheduled earlier after the incident with the two jun wangs. One day, Princess Ruo Yan came to FL to ask her to go see Ning Wang Fei. When FL got to Ning Wang Fu, Ning Tai Fei asked to meet with FL first. Ning Tai Fei wants FL to go beg the Emperor to cancel An Jun Wang and Yi Yun Wang’s punishment. FL agreed. FL found out that someone has put the abortion drug on the oil lamp and candle that caused Ning Wang Fei to show signs of miscarriage. Ning Wang Fei decided to keep the matter quiet to deal with it on her own.
FL went to the palace with Princess Ruo Yan to see the Emperor. The Emperor did not approve FL’s request and got angry instead. As punishment, the Emperor asked ML to write 3 copies of the country’s law book. The Emperor said if there is one word wrong, FL will need to write 3 copies of the book.

They want to create an opportunity to keep Chang princess in the capital so that ML can investigate the truth on his poisoning. The Emperor also wants to keep Chang princess in the capital but the Empress Dowager will want Chang Princess to leave as soon as she recovered.
