Summary:

FL woke up in the body of 5 year girl called Shang Guan Qing Dai.  FL was also called Qing Dai in the modern world.  FL’s father (Shang Guan Hong) is a government officer.  Shang Guan Hong married Xiao Feng Shi after his 2nd main wife (Wan Niang) passed away.  Wan Niang died one month after she gave birth to FL.  Shang Guan Hong and Wan Niang was not on good terms before Wan Niang died.  As a result, FL became the unwanted child of Shang Guan Hong.  Shang Guan Hong has two other children, a boy, named Shang Guan Xi and a daughter named Shang Guan Qing Qiang with his first main wife (Da Feng Shi).  After Da Feng Shi died, he married Wan Niang.  After Wan Niang died, he married Xiao Feng Shi/Feng Yan Rong.  Xiao Feng Shi and Da Feng Shi are stepsisters.  Shang Guan Hong and Xiao Feng Shi has a daughter called Shang Guan Qing Wei, who is 1-2 years younger than FL.  Shang Guan Hong has a concubine, named Liu Yi Niang.  Liu Yi Niang has a son, named Shang Guan Jie and a daughter, named Shang Guan Qing Lian who is older than FL.

Shang Guan Qing Dai often bullied by her step sisters.  Shang Guan Qing Qiang pushed Shang Guan Qing Dai into the pond.  The real Shang Guan Qing Dai died and the Qing Dai (FL) from the modern world took over.   Wang Kan (Wan Niang’s brother) and his wife Xuan Shi came to see FL.  They heard about the accident and wanted the Shang Guan family to know that even though FL is an orphan, she still has support from her mother’s family.  FL acted very considerate in front of the seniors and even gave up the present she received from Xuan Shi to Shang Guan Qing Wei.  FL met Wang Tao, her 4th cousin brother.  Xuan Shi pitied FL and wanted to make FL her daughter in law.  Xuan Shi proposed to Old Madam Shang Guan but Old Madam Shang Guan preferred to wait till FL gets older.

Shang Guan Qing Qiang (SGQQ) met Wang Yang (FL 1st cousin brother) before and fell in love at first sight. When SSQQ heard that Old Madam SG will bring FL to visit Old Madam Wang, she forced FL to bring her present to Wang Yang.  FL knew it was not proper, hence she told Shang Guan Xi.

Shang Guan Hong left for his new posting in Qing Yang.  Everyone went with him except for Old Madam SG and FL.  Old Madam SG and FL went to visit Old Madam Zhong Yi.  FL met Hua Shao Yan (ML) who looks like her boss in the modern world.  ML was around 15 years old at that time and he dressed as an opera performer when he first met FL.  ML’s mother is Da Yang Princess.  Da Yang Princess wanted ML to marry but ML refused.  ML found FL, cute and chubby.  Their first meeting was in the toilet where ML was trying to hide from the servants and FL was admiring the ceramic vases.  FL worked in an Auction house in her previous life hence she acquired a talent in identifying previous items.  FL gave ML a nickname, Jiu Niang Niang (9th Consort) and ML called FL, Baozi (Dumpling).

Old Madam Zhong Yi invited all the single girls to the party and wanted ML to pick a wife.  At first, ML refused to show up but after he met FL, he changed his mind.  ML told his grandmother at night that he wanted to marry FL.  Old Madam Zhong Yi knew ML was not serious.  ML told his grandmother, he wanted to enter military service to go to the North West to fight.  Old Madam Zhong Yi agreed at last.  The next day, ML invited FL to go fishing.  FL almost drowned but saved by ML.  ML felt bad and promised FL that he will fulfill one request from FL.  FL thought it was just a joke.

Old Madam SG and FL went to Jiang Ning to visit Old Madam Wang (FL’s maternal grandmother).  FL met Yu Zi Dou at a temple.  Yu Zi Dou is an orphan.  Yu Zi Dou’s mother came from a family of doctors and she taught Yu Zi Dou medical skill.  FL found a new friend called Qi Chen.

FL has 3 years of peace growing up with Old Madam SG.  Shang Guan Hong got posted to the capital city and asked Old Madam SG to join him.  Xiao Feng Shi has given birth to a son, named Shang Guan Xu in Qing Yang.   Old Madam SG did not like Xiao Feng Shi and found Xiao Feng Shi not experienced to manage Shang Guan’s household.  But Shang Guan Hong likes Xiao Feng Shi not for her intelligence or family background but for her devotion to him.  Shang Guan Hong found Wan Niang’s character too strong for his liking.

Old Madam SG urged Shang Guan Hong to get Shang Guan Xi to marry soon so that the household management pass to Shang Guan Xi’s wife.  Shang Guan Xi married Qian Shi.  FL noticed SGQQ still loves Wang Yang.  SGQQ’s heart broke when she heard that Wang Yang married Ceng Shi and they were expecting their first child.  SGQQ accepted the family’s arrangement to marry Meng Chang An, a military officer.

FL saw how cruel a woman can become when forced to share a husband with few women.  Shang Guan Hong made one of his tong fangs (Bi Tou) pregnant.  Xiao Feng Shi made a scene and accused Bi Tou of having an affair after Shang Guan Hong denied that  he slept with Bi Tou.  Bi Tou used to be Old Madam SG’s servant and Old Madam SG trusted Bi Tou.  Old Madam SG confronted Shang Guan Hong and suggested to promote Bi Tou to concubine status after she gave birth.  Shang Guan Hong admitted his wrong for not telling the truth to Xiao Feng Shi.  Shang Guan Hong said he cannot make Bi Tou his concubine due to the recent rules announced by the Emperor.   Old Madam SG moved Bi Tou to stay with Liu Yi Niang.  Xiao Feng Shi and Liu Yi Niang joined hands to kill Bi Tou and her baby.  FL’s servant (Ying Hong) saw Xiao Feng Shi’s servant passed a packet to a servant at Liu Yi Niang’s house.  FL knew Ying Hong might get implicated, quickly arranged for Ying Hong to retire and marry.

Qi Chen also moved to the capital city.  FL and Qi Chen became good friends with Tian Jia.  FL met Yu Zi Dou again.  Yu Zi Dou is actually the heir to Chen Guo Gong.  Yu Zi Dou’s father eloped with his mother when Old Chen Guo Gong refused to accept Yu Zi Dou’s mother.  A few years ago, Old Chen Guo Gong brought Yu Zi Dou home after he found out that his son and daughter in law passed away.  Yu Zi Dou has a younger cousin brother, Yu Zi Qi whom FL met before.  Yu Zi Qi finds FL interesting and surprised when he found out that FL knew Yu Zi Dou.

Yu Zi Dou went to Shang Guan’s house to visit FL and to apologise to Old Madam SG for not telling the truth about his background.  Yu Zi Dou gave FL a stack of story books as present.  The next time FL met Yu Zi Dou, was one year later.

FL went to the palace to attend a party.  During the party, the Empress Dowager passed an imperial edict to marry Tian Jia to Hua Shao Qi, a widow and Zhong Yi Hou Shi Zi.   Zhou Yu Hua to marry Ning Wang and Zhou Dan Niang to marry Qi Wang Shi Zi.  FL noticed that none of the girls were happy especially Zhou Dan Niang.  Zhou Dan Niang disappointed because she expected to marry Yu Zi Dou instead.  Yu Zi Dou is the Empress Dowager’s nephew and he told the Empress Dowager, he refused to marry Zhou Dan Niang.

Wang Yang and Ceng Shi lives in the capital city.  FL followed Wang Yang and Ceng Shi to  welcome Wang Tao outside the city gate.  Wang Tao is coming to the city to take his imperial exam.  It has been a few years since FL saw Wang Tao.  While waiting for Wang Tao, a group of young men came.  FL saw ML.  ML made a name for himself in the North West and has become a General.  ML turned back to look at FL when he heard Wang Tao calling FL’s name.

The Qin invited FL and her sisters to attend a party.  During the party, FL and Qi Chen went out for breather.  Qi Chen gossiped about the three eligible bachelors in town.  Qi Chen and FL criticised the eligible bachelors.  They did not know that the three eligible bachelors overheard their conversation.

FL met Qin Zi.   Qi Chen did not like Qin Zi.  FL has the same feeling toward Qin Zi too.  SG Qing Lian and Ji Chun quarreled.  SG Qing Lian’s sleeve got torn.  Qin Zi took SG Qing Lian to her room to change.  On the way back, they heard someone playing a flute.  Qin Zi bumped into his brother, Qin Man.  Qin Man waiting for ML.  ML went to the courtyard that stayed by Qin Shu, Qin Man’s sister.  Qin Shu, ML and Ning Wang was close friends before.  Qin Shu married to a prince in the neighbour country as a political bride.

Qin Man and ML bumped into FL, Qi Chen and Tian Jia.  ML surprised to see FL addressed him formally.  ML could not stop himself from teasing FL.  Qin Man commented that FL looks like Qin Shu.  SG Qing Lian got drunk at the end of the party.  On the way home, FL has to stop to let SG Qing Lian vomit.  FL heard Qin Man chasing after her horse carriage calling her sister.  FL stopped the carriage and saw Yu Zi Dou and ML pulling Qin Man away.  Both Yu Zi Dou and ML surprised that they said the same thing to FL.

SG Qing Lian fell in love at first sight with Yu Zi Dou.  SG Qing Lian met Yu Zi Dou a few times in public but never get any opportunity to speak with Yu Zi Dou alone.  SG Qing Lian jealous of FL’s relationship with Yu Zi Dou.  Liu Yi Niang advised SG Qing Lian not to hope for the impossible but SG Qing Lian refused to listen.

FL went for a short trip to visit the royal temple with Wang Yang, Ceng Shi and Wang Tao.  Wang Yang wanted Wang Tao to spend time with FL alone.  FL knows that the woman in this era cannot decide who they want to marry.  Even though she did not love Wang Tao but she believed that love can slowly grow since Wang Tao treated her very well.  FL bumped into Yu Zi Dou and ML again.

FL and her cousins left the temple and caught in a heavy rain.  They stayed at the Wang family’s holiday house.  Wang Yang’s daughter, Fang Hua has high fever.  FL suggested Wang Yang to ask Yu Zi Dou for help.  FL did not go back but stays a few days to keep Ceng Shi and Fang Hua company.  Both Wang Yang and Yu Zi Dou received an urgent message asking them to return quickly.  Yu Zi Dou escorted FL home and SG Qing Lian’s servant saw them.

Xiao Feng Shi tried to find a husband for SG Qing Lian.  Shang Guan Hong wanted to marry SG Qing Lan to his boss’s nephew but it did not materialise at the end.  SG Qing Lian pretended sick and complained to Liu Yi Niang.  SG Qing Lian questioned FL about her recent trip.  FL refused to say anything about Yu Zi Dou.

Wang Kan and Xuan Shi came to the city.  Xuan Shi propose to Old Madam SG to engage FL to Wang Tao.  At night, Old Madam SG asked FL’s opinion.  Old Madam SG told FL the past about her parent’s marriage.  Old Madam SG wants FL to marry someone who FL likes unlike her parents.  FL hates Shang Guan Hong and finds it not worthy for her mother to waste her life away for Shang Guan Hong.  If Shang Guan Hong loves his first wife so much, why did he need another concubine like Liu Yi Niang.  Shang Guan Hong treated Wan Niang like sister.  Shang Guan Hong refused to marry Wan Niang at first but relented at last. Shang Guan Hong distanced himself after he found out Wan Niang bullied Liu Yi Niang.  Shang Guan Hong got into an affair with Xiao Feng Shi before the mourning period was over.  Old Madam SG refused Shang Guan Hong to marry Xiao Feng Shi but relented when Old Master Feng begged Old Madam SG at his deathbed. Xiao Feng Shi’s mother is a concubine and she lived in the temple.  After Xiao Feng Shi met Shang Guan Hong, the Feng’s family upgraded Xiao Feng Shi status from Shu to Di.

FL went for an outing to Jing Hu.  Qi Chen told FL that the Emperor is looking for a candidate as a political bride and she worried she might get selected.  SG Qing Lian started to argue with Qi Chen.  SG Qing Lian noticed Qi Chen likes Wang Tao and purposely wanted to cause trouble between Qi Chen and FL.  FL also noticed Qi Chen was different when Qi Chen sees Wang Tao.  FL did not fall into SG Qing Lian’s trap.  SG Qing Lian wanted to slap Qi Chen but changed direction to slap FL and claimed that it was an accident.  Qi Chen got angry and fight with SG Qing Lian.  FL tried to stop them and fell on the frozen lake.  FL pulled SG Qing Lian with her.   FL noticed the ice is breaking because of their weight.  Everyone got panic and did not know what to do.  FL asked Wang Tao to find a string to save them.  Yu Zi Dou came to help.  The wind blew heavily and they attempted a few times before the string landed near FL.  Before FL took the string, SG Qing Lian snatched it away.  The ice broke and SG Qing Lian fell into the icy lake.  Another string suddenly appeared and lifted FL.  FL fell into ML’s embrace.  FL cried out at last.  ML teased FL.  Li Jue urged ML to save SG Qing Lian.  ML did as told but this time he called out to Li Jue to catch SG Qing Lian instead.  They all went to one of the prince’s house to change and stay one night.

SG Qing Lian lied that FL pushed her into the lake in front of her parents.  SG Qing Lian thought FL would not argued just like before but she was wrong. FL got angry with SG Qing Lian and told everyone what actually happened.  SG Qing Lian tried to stop FL from talking.  A cup of hot tea poured on SG Qing Lian.  SG Qing Lian married Li Jue as his concubine at last.

FL and Qi Chen attended a flower party at Qi Wang Fu.  FL suspected the party arranged to select one of the girls as political bride.  FL helped Qi Chen to avoid getting selected.   FL asked Wang Tao to bring her to visit the busiest part of the town.  When a cobra escaped from a performer’s hand, everyone started to scream and run.  FL and Wang Tao got separated from Qi Chen.  FL asked Wang Tao to find Qi Chen.  FL got pushed around.  ML appeared suddenly to shield FL from others and then killed the snake that appeared near FL.  ML scolded FL and Wang Tao for coming to this part of town.  Wang Tao felt bad but FL scolded ML back.

The Emperor give Qi Chen to Wang Tao as wife after he presented in front of the Emperor.  FL got a shock.  Wang Tao and Qi Chen wanted to reject the imperial edict but stopped by their family.  ML and Yu Zi Dou played a part suggesting to the Emperor to match Wang Tao and Qi Chen.   Wang Tao and Qi Chen felt extremely guilty towards FL.  FL already accepted the fact that Wang Tao would be her husband and when the news came, she was sad and knew it would be awkward for three of them together in future.  FL hardened her heart and congratulated Wang Tao and Qi Chen.  FL told Qi Chen, it was not her fault and asked her to live happily with Wang Tao.

Old Madam SG took FL for a holiday.  FL knew her grandmother worried about her.  FL spent her time happily at the holiday villa.  FL put on boy clothes and went out fishing.  FL met a young man asking for direction.  Later on, FL bumped into the same young man but this time, the young man has blood on his body and threatened FL to find him a doctor.  FL came out with all kind of excuses and suddenly a voice called out her name.  It was ML.  ML got slashed.  FL took ML back to the villa.  ML warned his staff (Chen Xuan) not to tell the truth about his injury.  After ML recovered, instead of leaving, he decided to stay on.  ML likes spending time teasing FL and followed her around.

Li Jue and SG Qing Lian made a surprise visit to the holiday villa.  FL knew SG Qing Lian came to made fun of her because Wang Tao is getting married to Qi Chen.  ML warned Li Jue not to tell anyone that he stays at the villa.

Yu Zi Dou came to visit ML.  Yu Zi Dou claimed that he came to pass a message to ML from the Emperor.  Yu Zi Dou decided to stay too.  FL made lots of sky lantern and asked Yu Zi Dou to paint on the sky lantern.  Yu Zi Dou drew pictures of FL on the lantern.  FL’s heart fluttered when she saw the lanterns.  Yu Zi Dou and FL lighted up the lantern and watched the lantern flew away.   When FL got back to the villa, she saw ML.  ML told FL he has to leave.

Near midnight, FL heard someone playing a flute and then saw a lots of sky lantern with different colours flying in the sky.  FL found out it was ML who did it.  Old Madam SG noticed both ML and Yu Zi Dou likes FL.  Old Madam SG warned FL not to have any hope with either one of them because of their family status.  FL agreed and told Old Madam SG, she will try to avoid them in future.

Old Madam SG and FL went home.  During dinner, Shang Guan Xu played a prank and caused Qian Shi to fall.  FL tried to help and Qian Shi landed on FL.  Qian Shi almost miscarried if not for FL.  FL hurt her legs.  FL has to stay on bed to recover for a few weeks.  FL found out Liu Yi Niang played a part instigating Shang Guan Xu to play the prank.  FL caught one of her servants sending a message out to SG Qing Lian secretly.  FL suspected SG Qing Lian was up to no good.  SG Qing Lian suggested to her mother in law (Qi Wang Fei) to match Master Fang (Qi Wang Fei’s nephew) to FL.

ML and Yu Zi Dou went to escort the political bride to North West.  ML sent Chen Xuan back to the city to guard FL after he received news from Li Jue of Qi Wang Fei’s intention.

Old Madam SG brought FL to pray at the temple.  FL noticed Old Madam SG actually arranged for her to meet her future husband candidates.  They bumped into Qi Wang Fei.  Chen Xuan asked Li Jue to help to stop FL from getting engaged before ML returns to the city.  Li Jue warned the young men and his mother.  But his message got misunderstood by Qi Wang Fei.  Qi Wang Fei thought Li Jue wanted to make FL his concubine.

Old Madam SG warned Shang Guan Hong not to accept the marriage proposal from Qi Wang Fei.  Shang Guan Hong got implicated in a corruption case and his job got suspended temporarily pending investigation.  Shang Guan Hong tempted to accept Qi Wang Fei’s help.  When Old Madam SG got to know about it, she quarreled with Shang Guan Hong.  Old Madam SG fainted.

Yu Zi Dou came back and visited FL.  FL took Yu Zi Dou to see Old Madam SG.  Old Madam SG told Yu Zi Dou what happen and tested Yu Zi Dou’s feeling towards FL.  Yu Zi Dou convinced the Emperor to give Shang Guan Hong a chance and to follow him on an assignment.  ML supported Yu Zi Dou’s suggestion and assigned to escort Yu Zi Dou.  Shang Guan Hong happy to know Yu Zi Dou likes FL and even created opportunity for both to say goodbye.  ML jealous when he saw FL and Yu Zi Dou.  Chen Xuan did not understand why ML did not ask for FL’s hand in marriage.   ML wanted to wait for FL to fall in love with him first.

They finished their assignment and returned to the city.  Yu Zi Dou told his grandfather, his intention to marry FL but objected by Old Master Yu.  Old Master Yu met with Shang Guan Hong to say that he will not allow Yu Zi Dou to marry FL.  In the meantime, FL bumped into young Master Fang at the bookshop.  The meeting arranged by SG Qing Lian.  Initially, young Master Fang rejected his Auntie’s proposal to marry FL but after he saw FL, he changed his mind.  Young Master Fang asked his Auntie, Qi Wang Fei to propose on his behalf again.  Young Master Fang went to see Shang Guan Hong.  Shang Guan Hong and Xiao Feng Shi told FL about their intention to engage her with young Master Fang despite Old Madam SG’s objection.  They hope FL would agree and convinced Old Madam SG but they were wrong.  For the first time, FL argued back.  FL did not want to tell Old Madam SG what Shang Guan Hong’s plan because she worried Old Madam SG might get another stroke.

FL planned to run away from home if young Master Fang comes to propose.  ML sneaked into FL’s room and saw her contemplating which presents to pawn for money to fund her escape.  ML told FL, he will settle her problem within 3 days.  ML set a trap for young Master Fang.  Young Master Fang got imprisoned after a quarrel at a brothel with another man over a hooker.  The Emperor informed of the incident and the evidences of the Fang’s family brought up for discussion.  Young Master Fang asked to go home.  Duan Yang Princess questioned ML’s involvement in the case of the Fang family because of FL.  ML denied and claimed that FL has no interest in him.

Shang Guan Hong felt lucky that the engagement between young Master Fang and FL did not go through.  Shang Guan Hong went back to support Yu Zi Dou to marry FL and believed that Yu Zi Dou will settle his differences with his grandfather.   ML asked his staff to watch Yu Zi Dou’s action and found out Yu Zi Dou planned to ask the Emperor for an imperial edict to marry FL.  ML knew he has no choice but to move faster than Yu Zi Dou instead of waiting for FL to agree to marry him willingly.

During the Dragon Boat Festival, Yu Zi Dou wanted to ask the Emperor but interrupted by his grandfather.  The Empress Dowager asked Yu Zi Dou for a meeting.  When Yu Zi Dou left for a short while to meet the Empress Dowager, ML asked the Emperor for FL.  The Emperor agreed.  Yu Zi Dou realised, he got tricked by the Empress Dowager to select a wife among the socialites.  When his servant passed the message about what ML has done, Yu Zi Dou left immediately.  Yu Zi Dou and ML met by the lake.  Yu Zi Dou regretted that he did not take precaution against ML.  ML said it was Yu Zi Dou’s own fault for not continuing with his request even though his grandfather interrupted him.  Now, FL belongs to ML instead of Yu Zi Dou.

FL got a shock when she received the imperial edict.  Duan Yang Princess upset that ML lied to her.  ML married FL.  ML took FL away for a honeymoon to his holiday villa in Nan Shan.  On the way, they bumped into Li Jue, Li Yu and Li Zhao.  Three of them surprised to see FL in male clothing.

There is a hot-spring at ML’s holiday villa.  Their romantic times got interrupted a few days later with the arrival of 4 persons.  They were Ning Wang, Li Jie and Zhong Wang, Li Yu and their wives.  ML went to entertain the princes while FL entertained the women.  FL arranged for the Zhao’s sisters to bathe at the hot spring while she waited outside at the bamboo park.  FL took at nap.  Li Yu saw FL and worried FL might get sick, hence he woke up FL.  Li Yu likes FL and felt embarrassed when FL looks at him.  Li Yu left immediately.  Zhao Yu Zhi is Li Yu’s concubine and she got jealous when she saw Li Yu’s reaction towards FL.

At night, FL heard someone playing flute.  FL thought it was ML.  FL walked towards the sound of the flute and surprised to see Li Jie instead.  Li Jie told FL, ML, Qin Shu and he learned from the same master.  Li Jie hinted the unusual relationship between ML and Qin Shu.  Li Jie walked close to FL and FL stepped backwards.  FL did not like Li Jie.  Luckily ML appeared suddenly and took FL away.  ML told FL a bit about his younger days with Li Jie and Qin Shu.

Li Jie, Li Yu and their wives left the next day.  FL put on a seduction act to arouse ML and then left ML in the room naked.   FL ran away to clear her head.  FL realised that she walked on the path towards to hill where ML brought her to see the sunrise.  ML quickly put on his clothes and ran out to look for FL.  ML found FL.  ML angry what FL did to him and wanted to take his revenge but his anger disappeared when he saw FL.  FL curled up into a ball and she looks lost and confused.  FL told ML, she has another name called Shen Qing Dai and she secretly loved her boss for 5 years.  FL died in a car accident because of her boss.  When she woke up again, she became Shang Guan Qing Dai.  ML hugged FL.  FL knew her confession had frightened ML, quickly said that it was only a dream.

ML and FL went back to the city.  Duan Yang Princess scolded both for leaving for holiday without notice.

ML and FL attended a party at Ning Wang Fu.  FL almost fell into a trap set up by Zhao Yu Hua.  At first, FL did not understand who set the trap.  FL only realised after she saw Zhao Yu Hua staring at ML.  Zhao Yu Hua likes ML.

Duan Yang Princess gave two pretty servants (Xiang Yuan and Xiang Ru) to FL after she married ML.  FL knew both girls wanted to climb on ML’s bed.  FL made both fight each other.  Xiang Yuan injured her face and Xiang Ru got poisoned by Xiang Yuan.  FL managed to get rid of them at last.

ML went to Bei Du to escort Zhong Hua, Beidu Wang Ye and his wife, Qin Shu to the Capital City.  ML left them right after they got to the city instead of following them to the palace.  Qin Shu surprised to hear that ML rushes home to see his wife.  Qin Shu saw FL when she went to the jewellery shop.  Qin Shu thought ML picked FL as his wife because FL looks like herself.

During a party in the palace, Qin Shu arranged a private meeting with ML.  Unknown to them, FL overheard their conversation.  Qin Shu questioned ML’s feelings for her and but ML denied.  Suddenly, Zhong Hua appeared accusing ML of harming Qin Shu.  FL came out from her hiding place to settle the misunderstanding.  After Qin Shu and Zhong Hua left, FL got upset with ML.  ML tried to explain that he did not marry FL because she looks like Qin Shu.  ML told FL, since young he has dreamed the same girl.  So, when he first met Qin Shu, he thought the girl in his dream was Qin Shu.  Qin Shu saved his life twice.  ML could not understand why Qin Shu willing to become a political bride.  After he got injured in the war, he started to realise that even though Qin Shu looks like the girl in his dream, but she was not.  ML found the girl in his dream in FL.  ML said this must have something that happened in their past life that prevented him from getting together with FL.  ML did not want to let go of FL in this life.  FL shocked when she heard ML’s confession.

ML took FL away for a short holiday.  But their holiday got interrupted with the arrival of Qin Shu, Zhong Hua, Li Yu and Zhou Yu Ji.  There was an assassination attempt on their lives.  Zhou Yu Ji and Qin Shu jealous of FL and tried to take opportunity to harm FL.  FL got slashed and Qin Shu got stabbed.  Qin Shu accused FL of injuring her.   ML saved them.

Qin Shu died a few days later.  Li Yu locked Zhou Yu Ji at home to stop her from spreading tales.  ML got locked up. ML assured FL, he will come back safely.  After Zhong Hua left, ML got released.  ML told FL, war is about to start between Da Hua Di Guo and Bei Du Guo soon.

FL went to the temple to pray with SGQQ and SG Qing Lian.  FL got abducted to Bei Du.  ML went to save FL.  ML asked Chen Xuan to escort FL back to Dai Hua Di Guo and  he will lead the soldiers to fight Zhong Hua.  FL and Chen Xuan almost did not make it back to Da Hua Di Guo.  FL surprised to see Yu Zi Dou appeared in Bei Du Gou and he saved FL.  Yu Zi Dou escorted FL back to Da Hua Di Guo safely.

FL worried her missing would tarnish her reputation.  Duan Yang Princess told everyone that FL was sick and recuperating at home.  FL told Duan Yang Princess what happened and asked Duan Yang to investigate the real mastermind behind her kidnapping.

FL took revenge against SG Qing Lian.  First, she went to see Zhou Dan Niang to hint that SG Qing Lian planned to take over Zhou Dan Niang’s position as Shi Zi Fei.  FL went to see SG Qing Lian to find out the real master mind but SG Qing Lian refused to tell.  Zhou Dan Niang schemed to make Li Jue suspects SG Qing Lian’s son could be an illegitimate child.   FL asked Chen Xuan to sneak in to scare SG Qing Lian and coincidentally, Li Jie sent a killer to get rid of SG Qing Lian.  SG Qing Lian got frightened and told FL everything.

FL found out she conceived ML’s baby in Bei Du.  FL did not dare to tell anyone because she supposed recuperating at home during that time.  When Duan Yang Princess got to know about FL’s pregnancy, she assured FL, she will protect FL.  ML sneaked back to the city to see FL.  ML came back on a secret mission.

Li Jie revolted but he failed.  One day, while FL and ML went out, Lie Jie sent his staff to invite FL and ML for a meeting.  Li Jie blamed ML for not accepting his sister’s love.  Li Jie’s sister did not want to become a political bride and she killed herself.  After the death of his sister, he planned to take away the woman who ML loves.  Li Jie made Qin Shu fell in love with him and then got Qin Shu to become a political bride.  When he found out Zhao Yu Hua likes ML, he got Zhao Yu Hua to marry him instead.  Li Jie said he could have stopped ML from marrying FL if he was in the city at that time.  Li Jie asked ML to have a one to one sword fight.  ML agreed.  Li Jie wanted to die in ML’s hand.  

FL gave birth to a son.  ML asked for a transfer to the south.  ML took his family with him.
