Right now, I’ll summarize the drama. If I have time, I’ll edit the summaries into detailed recaps. The author of the novel was involved in writing the script and she said it’s 90% similar to the novel.
JM = Jinmi ; XF = Xufeng ; RY = Runyu ; LY = Liuying ; SH = Suihe ; QY = Qiyuan
-In the Flower Realm, the Flower Deity gives birth to JM. She doesn’t want JM to be destroyed by love like her so she feeds JM a Loveless pill.
-In the Heaven Realm, the Water Deity marries the Wind Deity even though he loves the Flower Deity. The Heavenly Emperor betroths his eldest son to the married couple’s eldest daughter if they have one.
-The Flower Deity tells her subordinates to hide JM’s identity. The Flower Realm blames the Flower Deity’s death on the Heavenly Emperor and breaks away from the Heaven Realm.
-Hundred of years later, JM is now grown up. Chief Mudan scolds JM for being lazy.
-In the Heaven Realm, the Fire Deity XF is going through a phoenix rebirth. His mother, the Heavenly Empress, tells XF’s subordinate to guard XF’s place to prevent anyone from disturbing him.
-JM complains to Lao Hu and Lian Qiao about having to live in a protected barrier. Every year, the Flower Chiefs only open the barrier on the anniversary of the Flower Deity’s death so that everyone can visit her grave.
-At the grave of the Flower Deity, Chief Mudan calls JM to the front and everyone pays their respect to the Flower Deity.
-A masked person plans to attack XF tonight at the end of his rebirth, which is when he’s weakest.
-Chief Mudan forces JM to guard the grave of the Flower Deity. JM summons her friend, Lord Puchi, to help untie her. Long ago, JM and her friend Rourou escaped out of the barrier and ran into a monster. Rourou died, and it was Lord Puchi who saved JM. To repay him, JM gives him her divine strength. Lord Puchi gives JM a plant and says it’s Rourou. He says there’s someone in the Heaven Realm who can turn Rourou into human form again.
-In the Heaven Realm, the Night Deity RY is attacked by a masked man. RY chases the masked man to XF’s place. XF’s subordinate forbids RY from going inside to search.
-XF goes through the final stage of rebirth and flies up into the sky. Suddenly he’s ambushed by arrows. Injured, he falls through the clouds.
-JM sees a fireball blasting through the barrier and crashes in her garden. She checks and sees what looks like a burnt crow. To save it, she covers it with dirt and waters it because this is how fruits and flowers “grow up” in the Flower Realm.
-The Heavenly Emperor and Heavenly Empress are horrified to learn that XF has disappeared.
-JM feeds the burnt bird her precious fermented honey to revive it. Since it was able to blast through the barrier, it must be very powerful. JM decides to eat it.
-JM finds a pot and a knife, but when she returns to the bird, it has turned into a human and won’t fit her pot. She decides to cut its internal essence out and eats it instead. She searches the body and notices one spot on the body that’s different.
-The burnt bird is XF, who wakes up and startles JM, causing her to drop her knife between his legs. JM introduces herself as his savior. He grabs her wrist and from her pulse, knows she’s female. JM doesn’t understand the difference between male and female and says she’s a fruit fairy. XF sees a mystical hairpin in JM’s hair and suspects she’s not ordinary like she claims.
-JM thinks XF is a crow, so she gives him worms to eat.
-JM takes XF to a pond to get drinking water. He likes the taste of the water, but then he sees her putting her feet in the pond.
