FL (Liu Ruo Xi) found her baby dead the next day after she delivered. FL got married 2 years ago and her parent has passed away. FL’s husband accused FL of killing their baby. FL drank the poison wine sent by her husband.
When FL woke up and realised that she has gone back to 15 years old. FL decided to take revenge against those who harm her and her parents. In her past life, they told FL that her father was drunk and fell from the horse and died. Her mother killed herself after her husband died. Her family’s assets took over by her cousin, Liu Yu Jiang. FL’s father has no son and registered Liu Yu Jiang as his son in the family register. FL suspected her parent’s death was linked to Liu Yu Jiang. Liu Yu Jiang’s mother was 1st Liu Master’s concubine.
FL is the only child and pampered by her parents. Her father is the 2nd Liu Master. FL’s mother came from a literacy family background and was an only child. When she married 2nd Liu Master, she brought a lot of dowries with her. The Liu Family household controlled by 1st Liu Madam. 1st Liu Madam has three children. The first daughter named Liu Rou Yuen, the son called Liu Yu Hai and the last daughter called Liu Rou Juan. Liu Rou Yuen is pampered and spoilt by her mother. She often bullied FL and Liu Rou Juan.
Liu Yu Jiang already married with three kids, 2 daughters called Dai Jie and Er Jie and a son called Da Guan. Liu Yu Jiang is the first grandson of Old Madam Liu hence she dotted on him. Old Madam Liu has been pressuring 2nd Liu Master to register Liu Yu Jiang as his son. FL wanted to prevent it from happening hence suggested her father to consider adopting 3rd Liu Master’s youngest son instead.
3rd Liu Master stayed in another province. He has three kids, 2 sons called Liu Yu Xiang and Liu Yu Huai and a daughter called Liu Rou Xuan. 3rd Liu Master agreed to his brother adopting Liu Yu Huai but his wife disagreed. FL already predicted that. Hence she suggested her parents to consider a distant relative called Liu Yu Wen. Liu Yu Wen parents have passed away. Liu Yu Wen stayed with his brother and sister-in-law. Their family actually relied on the Liu’s family for financial support. Liu Yu Wen is only 10-year-old and often abused by his sister-in-law.
1st Liu Master kept a mistress called Hai Thang and a daughter outside. When 1st Liu Madam found out about them, she wanted to get rid of them. FL saved them. Hai Thang and her daughter got recognised as part of the Liu’s family.
FL followed her mother to one of their properties outside the city. Their horse got poisoned. They bumped into Rong Cheng Han who just came back from his military service. ML is the youngest son of Yong Jing Wang Ye. ML lend them one of his horses and left a good impression on 2nd Liu Madam.
ML asked 2nd Liu Master to accept him as student. FL tried to dissuade his father but it did not go as planned when Yong Jing Wang Ye came with ML to ask 2nd Liu Master formerly. 2nd Liu Master has no choice but to accept ML as his student. ML helped 2nd Liu Master to deal with Liu Yu Wen’s brother and sister-in-law. The greedy couple signed a document to sever their relationship with Liu Yu Wen and to agree for Liu Yu Wen to get adopted by 2nd Liu Master. ML’s impression gets better each day in front of 2nd Liu Master and Madam. FL does not want her parents to like ML and she keeps thinking of methods to get rid of ML
FL went to Chang Princess’ party. Chang Princess organised the party as an excuse to look for a wife for her son, Han Qing. FL purposely acted the opposite of what Chang Princess likes and kept a low profile. After the party, Han Qing told his mother that he wanted FL but Chang Princess claimed Liu Rou Yuen would be more suitable for him.
Liu Rou Yuen did not get to marry Han Qing. Liu Rou Juan used dirty tricks to get married Han Qing instead. But Liu Rou Juan’s life ended tragically. Chang Princess hated Liu Rou Juan and made her life hell. Liu Rou Yuen tried to harm Liu Rou Juan before her wedding but got injured instead. Liu Rou Yuen married a government official after that.
Chang Princess also hated FL and tried a few times to cause trouble to FL. ML could not stand it and brought down Chang Princess and her family.
ML got promoted to Zhou Shun Dou Dou and Wu Yang Hou (Marquis). ML protected 2nd Liu Master and Liu Yu Wen from being killed by Liu Yu Jiang.
FL did not want to marry ML but changed her mind after she decided to find out who was the culprit who harm her in her past life. FL set three conditions with ML before she agrees to marry him.
Yong Jing Wang Fei (Su Shi) does not like FL. Su Shi (ML’s mother) wanted ML to marry Su Qing Nuan. ML refused and said he treated Su Qing Nuan like sister.
After marriage, FL and ML’s relationship got closer and both were very open with each other. ML shared his childhood story with FL and why he did not like Su Qing Nuan. Su Qing Nuan likes Rong Cheng Yi (ML’s eldest brother) since young. Her sister married Rong Cheng Yi but her sister’s health has not been good. Su Qing Nuan always acted as back-up if Rong Cheng Yi’s wife was to pass away. Unfortunately for Su Qing Nuan, Rong Cheng Yi’s wife was still alive even though she was very sick. When ML returned from his military mission, Su Shi wanted to betroth Su Qing Nuan to ML to compensate her for her youth of spending her time waiting for Rong Cheng Yi. ML refused to agreee to Su Shi’s wishes.
Su Qing Nuan created havoc and trouble in Yong Jing Wang Fu behind the scene. FL never trusted Su Qing Nuan and kept her at a distance.
FL gave birth to a boy. ML immediately asked for approval from the Emperor to appoint his first-born to Shi Zi (Heir to take over his official title). FL worried that someone may harm her son hence suggested to ML to move out from Yong Jing Wang Fu. ML agreed and asked Old Wang Ye for approval but Old Wang Ye disagreed. ML and FL’s plan did not go as plan after Old Wang Ye got a stroke while punishing Rong Cheng Xiang.
Old Wang Ye asked FL to manage the Yong Jing Wang Fu together with Lou Shi (Rong Cheng Xiang’s wife). FL agreed knowing that this will keep her family safe if she has the power and authority in the Wang Fu. Old Wang Ye dotted on FL’s son called Xiao Zhu. The more time Old Wang Ye spent with Xiao Zhu, he regretted that he did not spend enough time with his own kids when they were young. Old Wang Ye felt extremely remorse on how he treated ML. Old Wang Ye thought since ML has her own birth mother around he will get all the love and attention from her. But Su Shi did not love ML as much as she loves Rong Cheng Yi and Rong Cheng Xiang. Su Shi wanted to show the public that she was not bias hence she shower all her loves to her stepchildren and neglected her own son.
Su Qing Nuan killed Rong Cheng Yi and passed the blame to FL. Su Qing Nuan fell in love with Rong Cheng Yi but then switched her focus to ML towards the end. Su Qing Nuan thought she can convince Su Shi to force ML to marry her once she gets rid of FL. But her plan did not materialise. ML found witness and evidence to prove Su Qing Nuan guilty.
Yong Jing Wang title passed on to ML after Old Wang Ye died. Su Shi opposed and forced ML to decline it. ML did as told but rejected by the Emperor. FL could no longer stand Su Shi’s uncaring attitude towards ML, hence suggested to Su Shi to ask the Emperor herself. Su Shi did as suggested but did not get her wish. Even Rong Cheng Yi’s wife did not support Su Shi. At the end, Su Shi moved to stay in the temple.
