This is the last Hei Yan audiobook that I found on the internet. There are two stories in this audiobook. Episode 1 – 27 is the story on Can Nu. Episode 28 – 48 is actually the story of Yan Niang. In Yan Niang, her brother is called Bai Yin but in this story, Yan Niang’s brother is called as Meng Zhu.
A Luo (FL) is a name given by A Po (granny) when A Po saved her from the river one year ago. FL and Granny shunned by the villagers because of their hideous looks. The story started with FL exchanging her body for a bowl of goat milk to take back to the tent to feed the sick A Po. A Po was very hurt when she got to know how FL got the goat milk. Before A Po died, A Po told FL to go to Shen Shan, a miraculous mountain to cleanse her sin.
FL lives on the grassland. Tribe fights often occur because of land and women. FL caught in a fight between the Di Er Tu Ren tribe and Qi Ke Ren Tribe. The leader of the Di Er Tu Ren troupe is Zi Cha De De Mo He (ML). FL met ML 4 years ago but now with the scars on her face, she was doubtful that ML could still recognise her. The Qi Ke Ren troupe led by a woman called Qing Yi Na. When Qing Yi Na lost to ML, she agreed to follow ML back to his tribe. In exchange, all the Qi Ke Ren’s soldiers got released and Qing Yi requested to sleep in ML’s tent. Qing Yi Na picked FL as her serving maid. Qing Yi Na named FL, Ya Nu (Mute Slave).
ML felt that he has met FL in the past but he could not remember where. Everyone told ML that FL is a whore. ML has no interest to sleep with Qing Yi Na but it was not the same with FL despise her looks. Qing Yi Na noticed that and one night, she disabled FL’s speech, took away FL’s clothes and made her lay naked on ML’s bed. ML got excited when he saw FL but he stopped halfway after he realised that FL was not willing to have sex with him. After the death of A Po, FL has told herself that she will stop using her body no matter what situation she ended up in.
The first night they arrived at the Di Er Tu Ren main camp, Qing Yi Na purposely asked FL to go find ML to ask him to return to the tent. FL went to look ML and found out that he was having sex with another woman in a tent. FL stood outside the tent and called out ML’s name twice but got scolded. FL left after that and very soon ML walked out from the tent to follow FL back to his own tent. FL left ML and Qing Yi Na when she noted that she was not needed. Qing Yi Na feels hurt that ML did not want to sleep with her.
The next day, a woman called Lan Yue Er came to look for trouble with FL. Lan Yue Er used her lash to hit FL. ML stopped Lan Yue Er. That night, FL went for a midnight bath despite the cold weather and found out by ML. ML pulled FL out from the cold freezing water thinking that FL wants to kill herself. While they were warming themselves in front of a fire, they got interrupted by a hunter with a wolf coming to ask for fire to warm themselves. FL uttered “Cang Lang” after she saw the wolf. FL paid attention when she heard them mentioned Za Er Tou Li Sha and Se Ling Huo. The Hunter introduced himself as Hong Liu.
ML purposely captured Qing Yi Na to entice his stepbrother De Lan Tu to come home. Qing Yi Na got very angry after she knows the truth. Qing Yi Na asked FL to follow her but got rejected by ML. ML said FL belongs to him. Qing Yi Na left in anger with De Lan Tu.
Lin Mu invited FL and ML to go hunting. After FL changed into Lin Mu’s riding clothes, FL turned into a beauty. ML said FL reminded him of the Mu Lan Guo King’s beloved consort called Qiu Chen Wu Lian. ML asked FL to become his woman but got rejected. ML said one day, FL will be willing to become his woman.
ML came back injured from a hunting trip with Lin Mu, Qing Yi Na and De Lan Tu. FL has bathed every day since ML was away. Since young, she has taken a pill called Fu Xiang Wan which will bring out the sensual smell in her body. That night, ML made love to FL.
FL came from Ping city. It has been the Ping tribe’s custom to form marriage alliances with the strongest tribe to get protection for the tribe. When FL was 14 years old, she was given to Mo Ran Guo King. After Mo Ran Guo King got killed, FL became the fighting prize for the tribes.
FL was happy living peacefully with ML and his tribe. Unfortunately, it did not last long. One day, Qing Yi Na asked to meet with FL. Qing Yi Na said she loves ML and can help FL to escape. FL did not agree or disagree with Qing Yi Na’s suggestion.
When ML went away for a few days, FL left with a small knapsack. FL met an old woman called Yu Mei. Yu Mei knows FL’s identity and stopped her from leaving. ML got very angry when he heard that FL has gone missing. ML instructed his staff to send a message to all the nearby tribe not to help FL if they see her. ML realised at last that he wanted FL as his wife.
Qing Yi Na told ML that FL got abducted by the horse thieves. Meanwhile, Yu Mei told FL that ML has left after he was told that FL has been abducted by the horse thieves. FL worried and left to chase after ML. FL almost got killed when she went to save ML. ML got injured. They were saved by Hong Liu and the wolf
When FL woke up, she saw a man with silver hair. The man said his name is Meng Zhu. ML was happy to see FL recovers and more so when FL said she will be by his side forever. FL told ML the truth about her background. FL and ML rejected Meng Zhu’s offer to heal the scars on FL’s face.
When ML and FL got back to their tribe, they got to know that their king, Bo Lian Yuan and his brother went to take revenge against the horse thieves after they heard he has died in their hands. ML went to meet with them and release the horse thief leader after he saw a similar scene where a woman wanted to protect the horse thief leader.
That night, the Di Er Tu tribe has a welcome party for Bo Lian Yuan and to celebrate the return of ML. Bo Lian Yuan curious to see FL after he heard from the horse thieves that FL is a beauty. Bo Lian Yuan requested FL to unveil her face for everyone to see since she is ML’s future wife. ML agreed as he also does not want to hide FL from everyone. When everyone was happy drinking and dancing, Bo Lian Yuan asked FL to go for a walk.
Bo Lian Yuan told FL that he has once given a painting of a beautiful woman. When he wanted to see this woman, he heard that the woman had jumped in the river and died. He swore that if he ever sees another woman with the same eyes as the beauty, he will snatch the woman for his own. FL got angry and reminded Bo Lian Yuan that she belongs to ML. Before Bo Lian Yuan does anything further, they got interrupted by Meng Zhu claiming that ML was looking for FL.
In the next few days, FL remembered Yu Mei’s advice when they came back. Yu Mei said she has already predicted the meeting of ML with FL. FL will bring calamities wherever she goes and the death of ML if he becomes the tribe leader.
Qing Yi Na went to say goodbye to ML. Qing Yi Na purposely hugged ML when she saw FL. FL shocked seeing them and without saying a word, she left the tent. FL walked to the lake and at the same time, she thought about Yu Mei had said to her. Suddenly, FL got pulled into the embrace of ML. ML clears the misunderstanding that she has seen earlier. ML told FL that Meng Zhu is leaving the next day and they will follow him to the South. ML knew about the meeting of FL with Bo Lian Yuan and he is giving up his life in the grassland to find the peaceful life that FL wants.
