Whilst travelling through the wilderness, Gao Xin princess Jiu Yao experienced all kinds of hardships – losing both her identity and true appearance, she eventually settled in Qing Shui Town, disguised as a man called Wen Xiao Liu and became a doctor. In Qingshui Town, Xiao Yao/Wen Xiao Liu accidentally rescues Tu Shan Jing, the future leader of the Tu Shan Clan, encounters Xiang Liu, a nine-headed demon, and meets her cousin, Xuan Yuan prince Qiang Xuan who had been searching for her in the wilderness.
Life is the encounter and separation, it is the starting time and oblivion, but there are always things that once happened, will leave traces, and there will always be a person who once appeared, will be unforgettable.
The fated meeting at Qing Shui Town changed the destiny of everyone…
