Changling's biological father Emperor Wu Yong betrayed his mother Consort Wang too many times who left him behind by faking her death. But just as she thought she'd be forever alone with his child growing in her womb, she met General Rong from the neighbouring kingdom and his son. Falling in love with both father and son. The pair decided to take their relationship to the next stage and get married.
Raising both his son and the emperor's son in a loving home, the couple lived happily until one day their eldest son Qinghe returned home and told his parents that he was in a relationship with the emperor's daughter who did not inform him beforehand leading to his sentencing.
He loved the princess but her betrayal almost causes him and his father's death. Luckily, the trump card the family holds stops everything from moving.
Exchanging a life for a life, the deal is set, but just as everyone is ready to welcome the dead prince, his behaviour and mannerisms tell them a different story but this prince who is left in charge of disciplining a young man with silk and bamboo along with treason is one tasty dish.
How will Changling fair, dealing with the royal family who thinks he is here to take the kingdom from them and the man kneeling on the floor?
Will he fall for the prince or detest him?
