Episode 1 Summary
Concubine (ccb in future) Chan decided to leave the palace secretly, but was discovered by the pregnant Concubine Yu. Ccb-Yu did not let Ccb-Chan off after Chan begged her. Ccb-Chan was sentenced to death by Ccb-Yu. Ccb-Chan cursed Ccb-Yu’s baby before she died in hatred. Palace-Runners ( Hong-Mou and his cousin Chan-Song ) were transporting offerings to the palace when they met a bunch of ladies (rushing to Capital, to take part in a concubine competition) who were chased after by some famous bandits (Tin-Lei sect). Hong-Mou initially decided to forsake the ladies, but after one of the girls “Yi-Shon” (Charmaine) used some tactics, they have to send them to the Capital.
Hong-Mou lost the offerings, due to saving the girls. The pampered girls were complaining throughout the journey, Yoke-Yin (Gigi) thinks her beauty has results in the boycotting from the other girls, and trusted “Yi-Shon”, and hence sweared to become god-sisters with her. Yoke-Yin was later caught by the bandits and Hong-Mou went back to save her after knowing she is the daughter of a big officer.
After Ccb-Chan was dead, there are rumours around, so her room was then sealed. Yoke-Yin and Yi-Shon were chosen into the Palace. During midnight, YokeYin accidentally came to Ccb-Chan’s room.
