This is part of the 女儿楼 (Nu Er Lou) Series. There are 4 books in this series. The other three books are called 五更钟 (Wu Geng Zhong), 长命女 (Chang Ming Nu) & 蛊介 (Gu Jie). I found Chang Ming Nu on Ximalaya but need to pay to listen to the audiobook. After Yan Niang, I started to like Hei Yan’s book. It has the right amount of angst but not too lengthy.
FL (Yan Jiu) came from an intelligence and assassins organisation called Hei Dian. Three years ago, FL injured ML (Yin Ji Wang). Three years later, ML overtake Hei Dian and capture FL. But ML allowed FL to escape.
In the next scene, ML appeared as Yin Jiu You to save a heavily injured FL. ML’s look has changed into a weak looking scholar but has high martial skill. As they travelled towards Yin Ze capital, FL started to fall in love with ML. ML purposely made FL fall in love with him and then hurt her so that she can complete the last part of Han Yue Jiu Shen to use the Han Yue Gong. The 9th stage Han Yue Jiu Shen required FL to face a deepest loss and sadness to succeed.
ML born in a warrior family. 20 years ago, ML’s mother took him to battle and got captured by the Yin Ji soldiers. ML used for drug testing. ML slowly climbed the ladder from being a slave to the top position. In ML’s body, he has multiple poisons. ML and FL got chased by the killers sent from his enemy in the Yin Ze empire. After ML returned to Yin Ze kingdom, he got rid of all the traitors. ML sent FL away.
When ML was about to kill his opponent, Ou Yang Qing, a monk appeared to advise him to let go of his anger. ML decided to enter monkshood. FL heard that ML got killed in the battle with Ou Yang but she did not believe it. FL grieved for ML’s death and wanted to give up living. When Man Zhu (ML’s niece) saw FL, she told FL that ML did not die but has entered monkshood. ML also disabled his own martial skill.
FL went to see ML. Man Zhu told FL, ML’s history. At first, FL thought of acceding to ML’s decision but then she changed her mind. FL went to Yun Du Temple every day to see ML. FL did not get to see ML. On the 9th time, FL forced ML to come out to see her. FL told ML that she still wants to be with him even though he has entered monkshood.
ML left the temple with FL. FL asked ML to marry her but got rejected. FL decided to live in seclusion with ML on the mountain. Before they even get a chance to settle down, Ou Yang Qing came to take revenge against ML. FL and ML got separated. FL went back to Yun Du Temple to look for ML but told that he has not returned. FL bumped into her third sister (Bai Shan) from Nu Er Lou and Qing Shu. FL went to see Man Zhu find out where ML has gone. Man Zhu said Ou Yang Qing brought ML back to Yin Zi Kingdom.
ML locked in the water dungeon at the Ming Palace and he pretended crazy. FL went to rescue ML but got locked up as well. Ou Yan Qing thought of using FL to test ML but got interrupted when Qing Shu came to rescue them. FL gave birth to a baby boy in the dungeon. When Ou Yang Qing threatened the baby’s life, FL fights her way out. Some sort of magical power also made ML to break through and recover his martial skill. Both managed to escape at last.
ML asked FL to marry him but got rejected. FL felt bad for forcing ML at first and now she does not want ML to marry her out of obligation. FL and ML went to look for the Hei Dian’s owner. FL got injured when she tried to rescue the Hei Dian’s owner. During that time, ML realised that he has truly fallen in love with FL and could not stand to see her hurt.
ML’s parents came to see their grandchild. ML forgave his mother at last and went home with them. ML and FL got married. They have another girl a few years later.
