Her peaceful life is interrupted when she encounters the Fire Deity, Xu Feng, from the Heavenly Realm who had crashed into the Flower realm.

Due to the magic pill, Jin Mi becomes unwittingly involved in a love triangle between the two brothers who become rivals for Jin Mi affections. Jin Mi, unknowingly, falls for Xu Feng, through the mortal realm trial experience. Jin Mi learns, later, of her true origin as a child of the late Flower Deity and the current Water Deity & she was also promised to the Holy Emperor's first-born son, Run Yu when the Water Deity married the Wind Deity.
