This is the longer version of the synopsis. It includes a more embellished version of the translator synopsis and the original synopsis.

Once an imperial princess, now reborn among the lowest of slaves of the nobility. 

As the eldest princess of Nanzhao, she received the burden of an imperial ruler and took to the battlefield in tumultuous times. Instead of being a hero, her actions were vilified by officials as interference in the imperial court. Clutching her trusted confidante in her arms among a sea of flames, her tattered heart was pierced by an arrow shot by the one she loved most. 

In her previous life, she was known as Ning Rulan.

And yet, perhaps heaven had seen it fit to give her another chance.

Resurrected as a palace maid carrying out the most menial of tasks in the imperial palace of the nation of Beimin, her resolve to take revenge and save her younger brother from being a puppet emperor drives her. Fate however, had not deigned to smile upon her forever. Forced to navigate through the tiger’s den that is court politics, many devilish and vindictive nobles will make themselves known. Only upon her conquest of these obstacles will she be able to carve out a new place for herself.

A place for the woman now known as Su Xi-er.

Travelling across nations.

Finding secrets to be unravelled. 

Dangerous encounters around every corner.

Will she remain shackled to her past?

Or will she be able to reach for the happiness that is now before her?

No matter if she is Ning Rulan or Su Xi-er, this time, there would be no more second chances ー no more regrets! 


Numerous officials submitted a petition, asserting that the Eldest Imperial Princess, Ning Rulan, must be sent into exile for acting as a regent. However, after waiting for three days, what she received in return was his brutal command, ice-cold fetters that sealed off her heart. Amidst the boundless sea of blazing flames, a Heart-Penetrating Arrow was shot straight at her. She watched helplessly as he walked towards another woman, the woman who was already bearing his child! Yun Ruofeng, you’re really a heartless and an unfaithful person! Rancour gyred within her. Bathed in the raging inferno and rising from the ashes, she was reborn. When she opened her eyes, the manifold lustre of coloured ceramic glazes flickered across them.

In this lifetime, she is Su Xi-er. She wants to become even more powerful. Men are all a bunch of shit! Those that obstruct my path are to perish!

However, an idiosyncratic man just had to intrude into her worldーBeimin’s number one handsome man, Prince Regent, Pei Qianhao, the puissant man who caused everyone to tremble thrice. “This prince will dismiss the Beauty Palace for you. I'll only love you in this lifetime.”

She rejected him, “This servant is merely someone scrubbing the chamber pots in the Palace Side Quarters*.”

He smiled jocosely. “This prince doesn’t mind that you’re stinky.”


*T/n: It’s part of the imperial harem and is where the palace maids reside.
