Female Voice: 冷颜倾城 (Lěng Yán Qīng Chéng)
FL (Chu Liu Li) is a royal painter and a bed warmer for the So Lo Emperor (ML). ML is a brutal and violent Emperor. He killed whoever offended him even slightly. Three years ago, FL accidentally stumbled into ML’s room. ML shocked when he first saw FL and kept her with him. ML forced FL to sleep with him but has no intention to make FL his consort. ML always had bad dreams and very often he will call out a name “A Yue” in his dream. FL suspected that she probably looks like A Yue. That is why ML did not kill her the first time he met her.
When FL first entered the palace, she met Qing He Wang. It was a plot by Qing He Wang to make FL and ML meet. ML has duo personalities. ML is brutal during the day and gentle towards FL at night. FL knows she was treated as A Yue’s shadow. One day, FL lashed-out that she is not A Yue. ML’s expression changed and commented that he knows. FL realised if she wants to stay alive, she needs to act like A Yue.
ML brought FL to a royal hunting trip. They met with an assassination attempt. When ML and FL were near the cliff surrounded by assassins, FL pushed ML down the cliff. Qing He Wang took off his mask and congratulated FL for doing a good job. But FL did not get what was promised to her. FL got imprisoned instead. Qing He Wang visited FL at the prison cell and told her the story of A Yue.
Qing He Wang and ML were very close before they met A Yue. A Yue mistakenly thought ML saved her and fell in love with him. ML made A Yue his consort. ML wanted to become a great emperor by conquering other countries. A Yue was miserable in the palace and later died due to sickness. Qing He Wang criticised ML for not appreciating A Yue hence he decided to take away ML’s empire.
ML did not die. FL confessed to ML the night before the hunt. FL said she has fallen in love with ML and cannot continue her pretence as A Yue. FL asked for freedom in return for helping ML.
One year later…
The people revolted against ML. FL went to the palace and saw ML heavily injured. ML confessed that he has slight feelings towards to FL. After ML died, FL took his body into the royal mausoleum and remained there with him.
