I listened to Audiobook 1 because it has less episodes but Audiobook 2 is better with multiple voices. I like the FL character in this story. FL takes revenge against those who harm her or down look on her. She is skillful in her plotting and let others do her dirty works for her.
This story reminded of Lasher written by Ann Rice where the new soul takes time to adjust to the new body. FL has a wooden expression, difficulty in talking and weak body movement when she first transmigrated to the new body.
FL (Cheng Jiao Niang) is a retard since birth. After her mother passed away, her father remarried and abandoned FL in a temple. FL’s maternal grandmother supported the temple financial to get the Nun to look after FL.
One night, there was a lightning strike that caused the temple to burn down. FL suddenly became alert. FL left with her servant, Ban Qin after the temple got burnt down. FL has difficulty talking and moving on her own. FL’s grandmother bought Ban Qin to serve FL many years ago.
FL and Ban Qin travelled from Bing Zhou to Jiang Zhou to FL’s father house. FL earned their transport money by providing medical treatment. FL has two conditions before she treats someone. First, the patient needs to go her to place and second, she only treats people who can’t be treated by any doctor and about to die. Throughout the trip, FL asked Ban Qin to record down those who helped them and those who bullied them.
When FL and Ban Qin reached Jiang Zhou, they were not welcome by the Cheng’s family. Zou Liu Lang (FL’s cousin brother) wanted to ignore FL but his good friend, Qin Lang Jun commented that it was amazing that two girls could travelled so far without getting cheated. After that comment, Zou Liu Lang decided to go to Jiang Zhou to meet FL. Zou Liu Lang is an arrogant young man. Zou Liu Lang thought it was all Ban Qin’s credit that FL reached Jiang Zhou safely. Zou Liu Lang asked Ban Qin to leave with him. Ban Qin thought FL was in good hands and although she was sad, she left for her own future. Ban Qin left without saying goodbye to FL.
After Ban Qin left, FL did not complain. FL did a lot on her own. FL kept changing the servants given to her by Madam Cheng. At the end, only one servant girl named Qing Mei who seems able to handle her peculiar way. FL changed Qing Mei’s name to Ban Qin.
FL’s cousins sisters complained that FL brought shame to the family. Ever since FL moved in, there was no peace in the Cheng family. Old Madam Cheng asked his son to send FL to live in a temple.
FL moved out to stay in a family temple. In the family temple, there was a spinster from the Cheng’s family. When FL noticed that the spinster and her lover tried to harm her, FL plotted an accident to get rid of them. FL made friends with another nun in the nearby temple. FL suggested to the Nun to ask the Cheng Family to take over the family temple and her. The Nun did as suggested. FL repaid the nun helping her to make the temple become famous.
FL taught Ban Qin how to cook. One day, they saved Old Master Zhang who fainted on the road. Old Master Zhang likes Ban Qin’s cooking very much. Old Master Zhang’s son is a well-known Professor in the capital city. When 2nd Master Cheng got to know that Old Master Zhang likes Ban Qin, he gave Ban Qin to Old Master Zhang. Old Master Zhang told Ban Qin to go back to FL. FL asked Ban Qin to return to Old Master Zhang and in return she asked Old Master Zhang to give her a servant who can read and write. FL re-named her new servant Ban Qin again.
FL met Old Master Chen on the way from Bing Zhou. During that time, FL told Old Master Chen that he was ill and she can treat him if he paid her. Old Master Chen did not accept FL’s proposal. Old Master Chen regretted as he got very sick in the capital city. All the doctors confirmed that death was only a matter of time. Old Master Chen’s son (Chen Sao) is a high-ranking officer. If Old Master Chen pass away, Chen Sao will need to go on 3 years mourning leave. Old Master Chen’s granddaughter bumped into Ban Qin one day and told her grandfather. From Ban Qin, they got to know FL’s whereabout. The Zou and the Chen went to Jiang Zhou to invite FL to come to capital city to treat Old Master Chen.
The Zou sent a Servant Head to follow 4th Master Chen to Jiang Zou to invite FL. Qin Lang Jun warned the Zou’s servant not to say too much about the Zou. The Zou servant regretted for not listening to Qin Lang Jun. FL played a trick on the Zou servant until the Zou servant became afraid of FL.
FL agreed to go the capital city. One the way, FL met a bunch of ex-soldiers. There were 7 of them and one of them was heavily injured. FL treated him. FL even gave money to them. The leader of the ex-soldiers decided to follow FL. FL met Jing An Jun Wang on the way. FL and her escort got ambushed by a pack of wolves. FL saved by the ex-soldiers.
FL gave more money to the soldiers and asked them not to follow her. FL hinted to Jing An Jun Wang that someone was trying to harm him.
FL successfully treated Old Master Chen. FL did not want to stay with the Zuo. This made the Zuo very unhappy. When FL decided to leave, she asked Madam Chen to find her a place to stay. FL bought a new place. FL got hijacked by Zuo Liu Lang and brought to stay at the Chen’s residence.
Master Zuo and his wife thought they could use FL to their benefits but their plan did not materialised. Zou Liu Lang knew he was wrong but did not know how to make amends to FL. Their relationship became worse. Qin Lang Jun tried to help his friend and got implicated. FL told Qin Lang Jun she could treat his leg but she did not want to because he is Zuo Liu Lang’s friend. FL purposely made Zou Liu Lang felt bad for bullying her.
FL met the 7 ex-soldiers brothers again. FL became sworn sibling with them. FL earned a large sum of money after she saved a high-ranking officer from a serious sickness. FL used her money to invest into a restaurant business.
FL named her restaurant “Tai Ping” (Peace). One of her competitors got jealous of Tai Ping, tried to cause trouble. The competitor got the back-up support from another high-ranking officer named Liu Cao Li. FL made Liu Cao Li returned all stolen from her and made him lose his job after he got a stroke. FL asked Zuo Liu Lang and Qin Qi Lang for help to bring down Liu Cao Li and in return, she agreed to treat Qin Qi Lang. Qin Qi Lang’s leg recovered.
Wang 17th Lang came to town and asked to meet FL. Wang 17th Lang told FL that he is her fiancé chosen by her family back in Jiang Zhou. Wang 17th Lang is a wastrel and a playboy. Zuo Liu Lang and Qin Qi Lang could not understand why FL agreed to accept Wang 17th Lang as her fiancé. FL rejected the Qin Qi Lang’s marriage proposal quoting that she has a rule where she will not marry her patient or any of the patient’s family members.
FL’s adopted brothers met their old friend. This old friend wanted to get rid of them. He went to lodge a report that FL’s adopted brothers killed an officer and ran away from military duty. FL’s brothers got arrested. FL learned from Master Zuo the political fight in the government and how her brothers will get implicated. FL realised the case will get serious. FL asked Chen Sao for help but got rejected. FL went to Master Jiang for help instead. FL’s brothers got sent back to the military. FL sent them away and gave them three gifts that changed their life forever. Zuo Liu Lang also left to join the military.
Master Chen sent his servant to investigate FL’s background. The servant came back to say that there was a young doctor who used to treat FL’s nanny. This young doctor might be the person who taught FL’s medical skill but this young doctor has passed away. The young doctor left a letter for FL. Master Chen passed the letter to FL. The letter said “who are you?”. After FL read the letter, she asked the same questions repeatedly, fainted and became unconscious. This went on for a few days. Master and Madam Zuo started to get greedy and wanted to take control of FL’s properties. Ban Qin tried to stop them and asked Cheng Xi Lang for help. The royal physician went to see FL and confirmed FL would not survived.
Jin An Jun Wang sneaked out of the palace to visit FL. Jin An Jun Wang heard FL talking in her sleep asking who is she. Jin An Jun Wang told FL she is Cheng Fang, the name given by her grandfather before she was born. FL woke up. The memories of her past life suddenly played in her front of her. After Master and Madam Zuo heard that FL has recovered, they got frightened that FL might harm them because of their greed. The Zuo got sick because they scared of FL. The Zuo couple begged FL to save them. The Zuo couple claimed they were trying to protect FL’s properties while she was unconscious. FL said if they truly believed what they said, then their sickness will go away. Master Zuo regretted his action and promised to support FL in future.
FL decided to go back to Jiang Zhou to find out whether there was any linkage between the current Cheng family to her own family in her previous life. Master Zuo assigned bodyguard and a manager to help FL. FL and Wang 17th Lang met a few road blocks on the way home. Wang 17th Lang saw FL killed a man and became frightened of FL. When Wang 17th Lang got home, he asked his parents to cancel his engagement with FL. But Master Wang did not agree after he heard what FL did in the capital city. The Wang secretly planned Wang 17th Lang’s wedding.
Just like before, FL was not welcome in the Cheng’s residence. 1st Madam Cheng and 2nd Madam Cheng fought over FL’s dowry. Old Madam Cheng asked his son to kick FL out of the house. FL met a man with a familiar name called Cheng Ping. Cheng Ping thought he did something wrong. Cheng Ping left town to hide himself. 1st Master Cheng asked FL to go live at the temple. FL refused to leave but changed her mind. FL went to the south part of the town and settled in with the poorer branch of the Cheng’s family. FL gave money to the Cheng in the south to build new houses. FL sued 1st Master Cheng for keeping her dowry. The reputation of the Cheng went down the drain. 1st Master Cheng fell sick.
FL went for a short holiday and bumped into Wang 17th Lang. Wang 17th Lang thought FL followed him. Wang 17th Lang asked FL to cancel their engagement. FL agreed. Wang 17th Lang went home to tell his parents. The Wang did not want to offend FL hence went to tell 1st Madam Cheng. 1st Master and Madam Cheng got to know at last what FL did in the capital city. They realised their mistake to offend FL.
FL bumped into Cheng Ping. FL realised she came from 300 years from the future. Cheng Ping is her Ancestor. FL got betrayed by her lover and all her family got killed. FL’s lover cut her heart out. That was why FL often felt she has no heart. FL went into a shock. FL decided to go to her lover’s hometown to destroy the clan to prevent the same from happening.
2nd Prince/Liu Ge got into an accident and became a retard. Jin An Jun Wang insisted to bring Liu Ge to seek medical treatment outside the palace. Jin An Jun Wang asked FL for help. FL rejected Jin An Jun Wang claiming that it was not life and death sickness. Jin An Jun Wang argued but accepted FL’s answer at last. Jin An Jun Wang decided to travel around instead of going back to the palace. Jin An Jun Wang returned to the palace 1 year later.
FL went to Liang Zhou for almost year before she returned to Jiang Zhou. FL met Cheng Ping again. FL did not find her lover’s hometown and many times she thought of killing anyone with the surname Yang. Cheng Ping corrected FL.
FL received news that 5 of her adopted sibling died in the battlefield. FL went to the capital city. On the way, FL killed a monk and helped a government officer (Master Han). FL planned a big funeral procession for her adopted brothers. The funeral was so big until it became the talk of town. FL did not want to engrave her adopted brothers’ names until they got the justice they deserved.
FL forced the Emperor to investigate the unequal distribution of rewards to those who died and survived in the war. FL gave Fang Jiang Lin (1st adopted brother) a weapon she designed for him to present to the Emperor. Emperor was very happy and promoted Fang Jiang Lin to head the weapon department. Zou Liu Lang also got promoted from helping FL and Fang Jiang Lin.
Gao Lin Bo got to know that FL did not get along with her own parents. Gao Lin Bo got the Emperor to reward FL’s father and transferred him to the capital city. 1st Master Cheng suspected this might be a trap and advised 2nd Master Cheng not to go. 2nd Master Cheng refused to listen. 2nd Master Cheng caused trouble on the way to the capital city. Fang Lin, a government officer got extremely angry when he saw what 2nd Master Cheng did. When Fang Lin got the capital city, he lodged a report to criticise FL. Fang Lin met Master Han and his son, Han Yuan Chao on the way. Han Yuan Chao agreed with Fang Lin’s view. When Han Yuan Chao got to the capital city, he went to Tai Ping Restaurant to cancel his shareholdings.
Master Han bumped into FL in the palace and regretted what his son had done. On the way out, Master Han bumped into Fang Lin. Fang Lin fainted after he heard he had criticised the person who had saved him before. Fang Lin went to see FL. Fang Lin and FL argued. Fang Lin insisted with his complaint. FL asked to attend a questioning.
Someone accidentally bombed the weapon room. The Emperor got to know the creator got his idea from FL. FL debated with Fang Lin in front of Emperor and all the Ministers. FL won the debate. Fang Lin asked for a transfer to another city.
FL arranged a separate house for 2nd Master Cheng and his family. When 2nd Master Cheng reached the city, Master Zou hit 2nd Master Cheng and forced him to admit his wrong and gave up all the gifts he received on the way to the city. FL moved in to stay with them. FL was very generous with 2nd Madam Cheng. 2nd Madam Cheng got to buy whatever she wanted. 2nd Master Cheng started to get greedy. 2nd Master Cheng changed the ownership of all FL’s properties to his wife’s name. According to the law, whatever belongs to FL belongs to him. 2nd Master Cheng did not want to change it to his name because it will end up with 1st Master Cheng. Hence, he changed it to his wife’s name. FL did not say or do anything. When 1st Master Cheng got to know about it, he rushed to the capital city.
Jin An Jun Wang offered to go on a dangerous assignment. FL gave Jin An Jun Wang a small weapon to protect himself. Jin An Jun Wang asked FL to look after Qin Wang/Liu Ge on his behalf. Jin An Jun Wang already suspected that Gao Lin Bo will send someone to kill him during his assignment.
Cheng Si Lang got tricked into a plot organised by Zhu Heng’s servant, Chun Ling. Cheng Si Lang got beaten by Gao 14th Lang. FL went to help Cheng Si Lang. FL threw a challenge at Gao 14th Lang and she won. Gao 14th Lang felt humiliated.
1st Master Cheng scolded 2nd Master Cheng for his greed. 1st Master Cheng lodged a complaint with the local authority suing 2nd Master Cheng for owning private properties. 1st Master Cheng won the suit. 1st Master Cheng passed the properties back to FL.
Ping Wang heard his cousin Gao 14th Lang complained about FL. Ping Wang suggested Gao 14th Lang to marry FL to control her. Ping Wang asked the Empress Dowager to pass an imperial edict to give FL to Gao 14th Lang. Empress Dowager asked FL’s stepmother to see her. 1st Master Cheng became suspicious of the Empress Dowager’s intention and knowing 2nd Madam Cheng’s character, he asked his servant to break 2nd Madam Cheng’s leg to stop her from going to the palace. Madam Zuo went instead. Madam Zuo rejected the Empress Dowager’s offer to match make FL with Gao 14th Lang. Madam Zuo claimed that FL is engaged to her son unofficially. Empress Dowager got extremely angry as she felt humiliated because of the rejection.
Everyone who cares for FL worried how to get over the crisis. FL said it was only a small matter and continued her life as usual. Zuo Liu Lang and Qin 13 Lang put up an act in the night club to spread rumour that Gao 14th Lang snatched Zuo Liu Lang’s fiancée. Qin 13 Lang asked FL to marry him again but got rejected. FL asked 1st Master Cheng to go back to hometown with her parents.
Jin An Jun Wang returned from his assignment. Jin An Jun Wang went to see FL to propose to her. FL accepted Jin An Jun Wang’s marriage proposal. Qin 13 Lang and Zuo Liu Lang got a shock when they heard about FL and Jin An Jun Wang. Qin 13 Lang’s heart broke when he heard FL said she knew Jin An Jun Wang before him and she accepted Jin An Jun Wang because Jin An Jun Wang said he needed her.
Jin An Jun Wang managed to get the approval from the Emperor and the Empress Dowager to marry FL. An Fei miscarried and blamed that Gui Fei pushed her. It was plot arranged by the Empress to get rid of Gui Fei. The Emperor believed that Gui Fei killed the baby because of a rumour prophecy that the baby will be the next Emperor. Ping Wang (Gui Fei’s son) kneeled in front of the hall asked to be exiled. Gao Lin Bo claimed that this was a plot arranged by Jin An Jun Wang and FL. Both asked to come to the palace for questioning. Ping Wang got struck by thunder and died. The Emperor fainted and became unconscious.
FL arrived and saw Ping Wang already died. The Empress asked FL to check on the Emperor. FL said she could not treat the Emperor. Empress Dowager accused FL of killing Ping Wang. FL claimed she could invite thunder to strike but only if she was present. FL demonstrated it to prove her innocent.
Empress Dowager wanted to make Qin Wang the crown prince. Empress Dowager got Qin Wang to move back to the palace. Chen Sao agreed with the condition that the Empress Dowager cannot interfere in the governance. They will set up a council to rule the country. FL suggested to the Empress to adopt a relative and make him the crown prince instead. The Empress proposed it to all the Ministers. Some supported and some objected.
Gao Lin Bo asked the Empress Dowager to get rid of Jin An Jun Wang once and for all. Jin An Jun Wang went to see Empress Dowager and Qin Wang. Jin An Jun Wang (ML) came back crying. ML spit half of the tea on his sleeve. ML got poisoned and fainted.
ML’s servants went to ask FL for help. FL went out with Qin 13 Lang. Zou Liu Lang found them. Someone passed a piece of paper to FL. Qin 13 Lang realised he fell into the trap set by Gao 14th Lang. It was a plot organised by Gao Lin Bo. They tricked Cheng Si Lang to see Zhu Heng at the nightclub. When FL rushed to the nightclub, she saw Cheng Si Lang lying on a pool of blood. Chun Ling laughing looking at FL, claiming she killed Cheng Si Lang. FL walked towards Chun Ling and killed her without giving her chance to talk.
Doctor Li waited for FL to come but the servant came back with bad news. Doctor Li has no choice but tried his best to save ML. FL rushed to see ML but got blocked by his servants. ML’s servants scolded FL for her rejection. FL waited outside ML’s house for one night. FL left after she heard that ML has passed the critical period.
FL went home to arrange Cheng Si Lang’s funeral. Just like her 5 adopted brothers, Cheng Si Lang’s tomb was not engraved. ML woke up and heard that FL came to see him but got turned away by his staff. ML’s staff went to invite FL to visit but got rejected. FL’s servants went to see ML to explain what had happened.
Gao Lin Bo persuaded the Empress Dowager to get ML marry FL. If ML died, they can use it as an excuse to punish FL. Empress Dowager passed an imperial edict to force ML and FL to get marry giving an excuse that this will counter the bad chi. On their wedding day, ML was still bedridden but he forced himself to stand up to go through the wedding ceremony. The palace staff tried to humiliate FL by purposely rushed through the wedding arrangement. They never expected that there were so many people who admired FL turned up to celebrate FL’s wedding on the street.
FL shocked to see ML lifted her headscarf after the ceremony. That night ML slept in FL’s room. FL administered treatment on ML but everyone outside their room thought they were making love. The next morning, they thought ML was too tired to wake up and blamed it on FL. The Empress Dowager instructed FL to see her. After meeting Empress Dowager, FL went to see the Empress. The Empress surprised that the Empress Dowager allowed FL to see her and already predicted something bad was about to happen. ML did not wake up and after Dr Li fed him medicine, it got worse. Dr Li found out that ML got poisoned again. ML stopped breathing. Empress Dowager rushed to ML’s house. Everyone started to cry. FL got home. FL told everyone that ML was not dead. Suddenly ML woke up asking for water. The Empress Dowager got a shock and fainted. FL confessed to Dr Li that actually she has no medical skill. All this while, she used spells and black magic to treat her patient.
ML instructed those who were found suspicious beaten and sent back to their owner. A few sent back to the palace. The Empress Dowager got another shock. Empress Dowager cried that ML has changed ever since he married FL and wanted ML to leave the city. Gao Lin Bo disagreed. Gao Lin Bo got a counter attack from FL and few of his staff died from poisoning.
Chen 18th Niang brought Chen Dan Niang to the palace to accompany the princesses to learn calligraphy. Chen Dan Niang met Qin Wang who is now the Crown Prince . When Empress Dowager saw Chen Dan Niang was not afraid of the Crown Prince, she passed an imperial edict to make Chen Dan Niang the Crown Princess. Chen Sao rejected the imperial edict. Chen 18th Niang went home to see her parents. Chen 18th Niang admitted it was she who arranged to match-make Chen Dan Niang with the Crown Prince. Chen Sao and wife got a shock. Old Master Chen disagreed with his son’s decision and wanted to bring Chen Dan Niang and Madam Chen to leave city. Chen Dan Niang came forward to say she is willing to marry the retard Crown Prince. Old Master Chen’s heart broke when he heard that. Old Master Chen severed his relationship with Chen Sao and left the city to go back to his hometown.
Cao Guan Shi and Cheng Ping came from Jiang Zhou. Cao Guan Shi brought Cheng Ping to see FL. FL broke down in tears when she sees Cheng Ping. After FL talked to Cheng Ping, FL realised that it was their fault that brought calamity to the entire clan. The star indicates what will happen but it is not for human to control how it happens. Desires destroyed themselves hence there was nobody to blame.
FL asked to meet with Minister Chen Sao but got rejected a few times. FL went to the Chen’s residence asking to meet with Madam Chen. FL met Chen 18th Niang at the entrance. FL slapped Chen 18th Niang a few times and asked whether she could feel the pain. FL left and did not meet with Master Chen or Madam Chen. Master Chen understood FL’s message. If you did not experience it how would you know whether it is painful or not. What Master Chen did will destroy Chen Dan Niang’s future happiness. Madam Chen ignored Master Chen ever since he agreed to the let Chen Dan Niang married the Crown Prince. Master Chen and Master Qin plotted to force Gao Lin Bo, FL and ML to leave the city.
FL suggested to ML to leave the city. ML agreed. FL went to Cheng Si Lang’s tomb and engraved one character there. Gao Lin Bo agreed to leave too. But he arranged for his son (Gao 14th Lang) to leave first. Gao 14th Lang arranged an assassination attempt on FL and ML. Gao 14th Lang plan got backfired. FL killed Gao 14th Lang. Qin 13th Lang also came to help to make amends for his mistake.
ML got extremely angry that FL went alone to kill Gao 14th Lang. FL apologised to ML and claimed that she will not do it again in future. When the Empress Dowager got to know that Gao 14th Lang died, she got so angry that she instructed ML and FL to return to the capital city. ML rejected the Empress Dowager’s instruction many times. Gao Lin Bo advised Empress Dowager to put aside her revenge and focus on the Crown Prince’s wedding. They used aphrodisiac drug to test the Crown Prince. The Crown Prince was getting more and more restless and the servant used another drug to control him. The night before the wedding, the servant found the Crown Prince unconscious and bleeding on the bed. Empress Dowager instructed Gao Lin Bo to enter the palace. Gao Lin Bo asked Chen Sao to go too. Chen Sao went against his wife’s advice. When Chen Sao saw the Crown Prince, he asked the Empress Dowager to instruct FL to return to the city to treat the Crown Prince.
ML wanted to cheer up FL with firework. Suddenly, FL read from the star that something big was about to happen. FL and ML rushed back to the capital city.
Zuo Liu Lang assigned to guard the city gate. Zuo Liu Lang surprised to see Qin 13th Lang entered the city in the middle of the night with a woman and a child claiming that they were his distant relative. Not too long after that, FL and ML reached the city gate. Zuo Liu Lang asked the guard to open the gate but stopped by Qin 13th Lang. Suddenly a palace guard came and saw FL at the gate. The palace guard quickly asked FL to go with him. Qin 13th Lang only allowed FL to enter the city but not the rest.
FL asked the servant to prepare a few items after she saw the Crown Prince. The Empress’s spy got a slip of paper from FL. FL asked the Empress to use the fireworks that she sent in earlier for her. FL washed the Crown Prince and announced that they can start to arrange for his funeral. Everyone got a shock hearing that. Gao Lin Bo realised FL was buying time to get help, immediately instructed the guard to lock up the Empress and the palace gate.
The Empress and her servant ran to the palace gate and lighted the fireworks to bomb the gate. When the Empress saw Minister Zhang, she yelled for help and claimed that Gao Lin Bo and Chen Sao killed the Crown Prince. Minister Zhang came with a group of soldiers. Everyone already knows what happened when Gao Lin Bo and Chen Sao entered the palace.
Qin 13th Lang, ML and Zuo Liu Lang lighted up their own firework to send signal to get support. Zuo Liu Lang and Qin 13th Lang pointed their arrow at each other. Zuo Liu Lang got a direct shot from Qin 13th Lang. Qin 13th Lang went into a shock as Zuo Liu Lang’s arrow landed at his feet. Zuo Liu Lang has no intention to hurt. Qin 13th Lang regretted his action. Zuo Liu Lang is his childhood friend and now because they were on different parties, they became enemies. Qin 13th Lang did not want ML to become the next Emperor, hence he arranged for Yan Ping Wang to enter the city.
ML met the Empress at the palace gate. ML rushed into the palace and yelled FL’s name. FL managed to escape and hide herself in the palace. FL came out when she heard ML yelling for her. ML told FL that Zuo Liu Lang got injured and in critical condition. FL took Zuo Liu Lang to a room. FL used black magic to exchange her life to save Zuo Liu Lang.
Chen Sao knew he was wrong. Chen Sao refused Gao Lin Bo’s suggestion to blame the Crown Prince’s death on FL. Chen Sao wrote his confession on his own clothes and hanged himself in the Crown Prince room. Gao Lin Bo got beaten and locked up. ML instructed his servant to kill Gao Lin Bo. All the ministers now agreed to the Empress’s suggestion to adopt ML as her son and make him the Crown Prince.
ML brought FL back to Jin An Wang’s residence. FL has no heartbeat or pulse but she was still breathing. Zuo Liu Lang insisted to accompany FL night and day till she wakes up. ML went to visit Cheng Si Lang’s tomb and saw that it engraved with one character. ML went home and forced Zuo Liu Lang and FL’s personal servants to leave. Zuo Liu Lang worried ML might harm FL, begged ML to let him take FL’s away.
ML asked FL who was in coma whether she already predicted the future. ML thought FL was taking her revenge on him by letting the crown prince dies. ML almost strangled FL but he stopped himself. ML took FL to the palace. ML treated FL as if she was still alive. One night, the Empress sent an urgent message to ML. The Empress told ML that the Emperor has woke up from his coma. The Empress asked ML to think carefully what his next course of action. ML asked the important Ministers to enter the palace. ML said it was never his intention to become an Emperor and whatever he did is for Liu Ge/Qin Wang/Crown Prince.
The Emperor passed his imperial seal to ML to announce that he was passing his throne to ML officially. After ML became the Emperor, everyone shocked when ML announced that FL will become his Empress. FL woke up after the announcement. FL told ML that she used a royal spell which she was not supposed to use. But after the announcement, the spell got lifted. FL explained to ML why she could not save the Crown Prince but Zuo Liu Lang. FL said she has fully recovered and her heart is now intact.
