FL (Rong Fei) is a princess and ML is the son of a General from the earlier Dynasty. They grew up together and fell in love. Many years ago, FL heard a tale from her nanny about lovers tying their little finger with a red thread to signify forever together. When treason happened to FL’s family, ML’s father betrayed the royal family to save his own family. All the royal families killed except for FL. The new Emperor got mesmerised by FL’s smile when he was about to kill FL. The new Emperor changed his mind and made FL, his beloved consort.
FL suggested to the Emperor to appoint ML in charge of the palace security. FL told ML that she wanted him to forever stay by her side. FL slowly planned her revenge. First, she got rid of all the ministers who betrayed her family. FL even killed her own daughter and passed the blame to the Empress. FL became Empress after that. FL slowly orchestrated the downfall of the empire.
When the next revolt happened, ML persuaded FL to leave with him. FL advised ML to submit to the next empire to safeguard his own family. FL rather die. ML appointed by the new Emperor to execute FL.
A few years later, ML died in battle. They found a small bone with a red thread wrapped in a handkerchief in his belongings. ML’s staff claimed that they saw ML staring and smiling towards a direction as if he has seen someone he knew from the past before he died.
