Three years ago, in order to pacify the Western Jiang, he married the daughter of the military governor of Yongzhou as his empress, but this is when he met Huo Shi Ying, the most unparalleled woman in the world, the only female general of the Great Yan Dynasty. What she doesn’t know, and what nobody else knows, is that he has been paying full attention to her for twenty years, since he was six years old. The first time he heard her name was when by his mother the Empress and his elder sister, he then thought, a two-year-old toddler being taken to the border, how amazing.
More than ten years later, he once again saw her name on the battle report, these three characters Huo Shi Ying immediately drawing out a desolate picture in front of his eyes : flying smoke in the desert, galloping horses, soldiers in golden armors, a valiant woman drawing her sword, a strength lonely yet full of life, cruel but sweet, such a strong assault. Just because name gave him so many fantasies, his heart suddenly started beating.
Later, he quietly gave her a lot of opportunities. Her name appeared on the battle report again and again, bringing contributions again and again, making blood flow, ruthlessly killing. Countless times, he fantasized about what kind of woman she was exactly.
Later he learned that her nickname was An Sheng. An Sheng* ? (meaning peace and quiet) How could he give her peace, he no longer had that ability, the moment he raised the empress’ veil on their wedding, there was a faint regret in his heart, until he finally met her for real, this moment’s monstrous regret could overturn the skies and lands.
No one knew, he had followed her for twenty years.
The road to love is long and difficult. She soars in the sky like an eagle, and the sky is her yoke ; he dives deep into the sea like a dragon, and the palace is his cage. One is the first female general of the Yan Dynasty, and the other is the Palace’s Emperor. How can these two people who are as strong as enduring get closer to each other and turn their love into marriage?

To pacify the western Xinjiang three years ago, he married the daughter of Military Force Governor as the queen, but at the rest of his life, he met Huo Shiying, a special woman and the only female general in Yan Dynasty. She never knew that he has paid attention to her for twenty years. When he was six, he heard about her from his queen mother and sister for the first time, and he kept thinking about how miraculous it was for a two-year child to be taken to the frontier.
Ten years later, he saw her name in the battlefield report, drawing a picture in front of him – desert, flying smoke, horses, soldiers, swords, and a brave woman full of vitality, cruel and tender. Such picture exerted a so strong impact on him. Only a name gave him a lot of illusions, and only a name touched his heart.
Later, he stealthily gave her many opportunities and her name repeatedly appeared in the battlefield report. The countless achievements and decisiveness in the battlefield made him repeatedly imagine what kind of woman she is.
Later he got to know her nickname “An Sheng” (peaceful life). How could he give her a peaceful life? He has lost the qualifications. When he opened the Queen’s veil, he regretted; and when he finally met her, such regret became stronger to subvert the whole world.
No one knew that he has kept his eyes on her for twenty years.
The path of love seems extremely long. She was like an eagle flying in the sky, with sky as her spirit link; while he was like a dragon in the seafloor, with the palace as his cage. One is a female general in the Yan Dynasty, one is the Emperor, and both of them are powerful and bearable. How can they walk closer to each other and finally step into a marriage?
