In Landlord Li’s family, his first wife’s daughter with a good reputation was going to get married soon. Her husband-to-be was the noble son of the Shen Family. The Shen Family specially prepared a wedding procession that was ten miles long for this wedding ceremony, which caused countless envy from admiring eyes. Everyone knew that this was a beautiful marriage, well-matched in social and economic status.

The two families were joyously preparing for the wedding. They were awfully busy, so no one noticed that on some early mornings, Li Yuan Bao stealthily sneaked out of the mansion.

Li Yuan Bao was the second daughter of Landlord Li and his concubine. Since she was a daughter born from a concubine, this identity of hers was destined to lead her to live an entirely different life from her older sister. An identity that unwaveringly bonded to her throughout her life, she was unable to break away from it and unable to resist it.

Yuan Bao was fond of the Shen Family’s noble son. This feeling originated on that afternoon day, when she was in the loft embroidering flowers. The wind blew the silk fabric and it swayed and floated out the window. She got up to look for it and saw under the loft was a handsome nobleman wearing a sky blue brocade robe, holding the silk fabric. He looked at her with a slight smile: “Did you embroidered this?”


“It’s very beautiful.”

In just a moment’s glance, she had fallen hopelessly in love with this refined nobleman from just a simple conversation.

However, when the Shen family came to propose marriage, her father was partial and gave the opportunity to her older sister. From childhood to adulthood, the best things were always the older sister’s. She had always lived her life in peace but after she heard her father’s conversation with the master of the Shen family behind the cotton screen and after she saw her older sister’s blush, she only felt envious, a deep hateful envy for this older half-sister.

Why were some people always so lucky?

One time, she had heard the servant, who was cleaning up, talking to someone about a wizard, who could control the Gu, living outside the town in the Dense Misty Forest. As long as he was given money, he would sell the Gu.

*Gu – legendary venomous insect/ worm

Li Yuan Bao did not have much money but she had some gold and silver jewelry. She packed all her jewelry inside the wrapping cloth. She wanted to buy two Gu, one for her father, so that he would not be so biased, and the other for the Shen Family’s noble son…

In the future, she could then live out her days with him happily.
