When FL’s father married a new wife who gave birth to a boy, FL’s mother burned the entire residence down killing everyone including her own daughter.
FL became a quiet, cool and reserved young woman. The only warm she ever displayed is towards ML. When FL reached 15 years old, she requested to venture into Jiang Hu on her own. ML followed FL for 6 months until he was sure FL could take care of herself before he left her alone. FL made a name for herself after she became a bounty hunter. Every year, FL will return to visit ML during the new year. Every year, FL returned with wound and bruises but it turns lesser and lesser as the years went by.
