Dear readers… The weather was not quite friendly these days. I hope all of you were doing okay where ever you are. Let’s continue the Love Between Fairy and Devil episode recap. We almost get to half of this drama.
Are you curious about what happened to Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang? Will the simple Xiao Lan Hua be able to choose between her lifetime idol, Changheng, and her lifesaver devil, Dongfang Qingcang? Let’s find out, then. But first, a new character for you!
New Character Appearance
Tai Sui was an ancient evil god. He did not have a body and roam around like a swarm of black masses in the air. He could occupy the darkest corner of a heart, whether it was a human, immortal, or even a devil himself. He fed on evil spirits and had a great power to manipulate and persuade humans/immortals. For thousands of years, he was sealed by many goddesses. Because if he was free, there would be no more peace in the three realms.
The Cangyan sea market was bustling with many visitors. One of them was Jieli from Haishi City. Jieli tricked the Moon Tribe guards who asked for a pass token. She headed to her destination, and nobody should hinder her.
Do you remember Jieli? She was the one who owned the elixir shop and who ordered Xiao Lan Hua to go to Liufang Pavilion where she found the destiny book of Chidi Nüzi.
In the Cangyan Sea’s Arbiter Hall, Xiao Lan Hua was watering the flowers. When suddenly a maid barged in and scolded her. When the maidservant take off her veil, Xiao Lan Hua was surprised because it was Jieli.
Jieli nagged the little orchid that, thanks to her, she lost her shop and money. She almost died if she did not run from the city. Xiao Lan Hua explained that the people in Liufang Pavilion wanted to arrest her for no reason, she would be dead too if Dongfang Qingcang did not save her.
Jieli inquired about Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang’s relationship because when she was on her journey, she heard many romance stories about them. Xiao Lan Hua cannot answer her questions because she, herself, did not know about their current relationship.
Jieli demanded Xiao Lan Hua take her in and be responsible for her. Xiao Lan Hua rejected her request because living in the Silent Moon Palace was dangerous. Jieli grumbled that many people from Haishi city chased her outside the Palace. It was not easy for her to enter the Palace and seek shelter from Xiao Lan Hua.
Uhh… I did not like this Jieli, she seemed to be a cunning person. Was she up to no good?
Dongfang Qingcang and Shang Que come to the Arbiter Hall. Xiao Lan Hua told Jieli to hide before she ran into the hall to greet the Moon Supreme Lord. Dongfang Qingcang saw her weird expression, but he did not question her further. He asked her whether the little orchid had fixed the Destiny book. But Xiao Lan Hua said that she could not fix it.
Back in Shuiyuntian, she thought that when he asked her to fix the book, it was only an excuse to talk to her. Therefore she lied to him that she could fix the book. But it seemed that her thought was wishful thinking. But now Xiao Lan Hua was afraid that Dongfang Qingcang would use the book to deal with Shuiyuntian.
When Dongfang Qingcang did not say anything, she emphasized that she would not do anything more than help him in front of Changheng. She also mentioned that he had helped her three times while she helped him once. Because his life was more valuable than hers, Xiao Lan Hua said that they were even, and they did not owe each other anymore.
He asked her one more time, whether she would fix it or not. Xiao Lan Hua was adamant about not fixing it. Dongfang Qingcang was angry and used his power to catch Jieli. He used her as a hostage and Xiao Lan Hua should fix the book in three days.
Xiao Lan Hua appeared to be brokenhearted after Dongfang Qingcang said there was no love between them. I think she realized her feeling for Dongfang Qingcang…🤔
Shang Que took Jieli to the Wind Prison. She begged him not to take her there. Jieli told him about what happened back then in Haishi city. Jieli also mentioned that it was useless to threaten Xiao Lan Hua with her life. They were not close, and the little orchid owed her many spirit stones.
If Jieli died, Xiao Lan Hua would be happy because she would be free from her debt. Jieli advised to catch some immortals and killed them one by one each day, Xiao Lan Hua would fix the Destiny book to help them.
Shang Que refused her request. Jieli was quite good with words. She could probe the simple Shang Que only with a few words. He disclosed everything that Dongfang Qingcang did for Xiao Lan Hua. Jieli persuade him to take her to the future Moon Queen’s place, Xiao Lan Hua’s Arbiter Hall. Shang Que denied her words.
Xiao Lan Hua was just a loyal friend to Dongfang Qingcang and not his future Moon Queen. He explained that there were many beautiful women inside the Silent Moon Palace for the Lord, he did not need more. Jieli enthusiastically responded to Shang Que that he should see it from a different perspective.
There were many beautiful women inside the palace, but why did the Lord only set his eyes on Xiao Lan Hua? That means the relationship between the Moon Supreme Lord and Xiao Lan Hua was special.
After a long conversation, Jieli did not realize that Shang Que still took her to the Wind Prison..😅
These two were cunning at heart…🤣
Jieli was very good at words, but her memory was not that good. She spoke too much that she forgot her lies back then. She said that her relationship with Xiao Lan Hua was good. If not, she would never give her much credit at her store. Shang Que still insisted to have her locked in a cell.
Xiao Lan Hua came to the prison at the right time. She begged Shang Que to do her a favor. Surprisingly, Shang Que saluted and obeyed her words.
It seemed that Shang Que did believe everything that Jieli told her about the future Moon Queen…🤣🤣🤣
Jieli was finally able to breathe when Shang Que let them return to the Cangyan Sea’s Arbiter Hall. She inquired about Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang’s relationship. She asked 3 questions to Xiao Lan Hua: did Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang ever hold hands? Did Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang ever stay in the same room? And Did Xiao Lan Hua and Dongfang Qingcang ever kiss? The little orchid answered yes to all the questions.
Jieli congratulated her because she had made the Moon Supreme Lord fall in love with her.
Xiao Lan Hua explained the Heart Curse to Jieli. Dongfang Qingcang only treats her nicely because he wanted her to fix the Destiny book and he takes care of her only because she was his weakness that he could not wait to get rid of. Jieli taught the little orchid about romance.
She said that Dongfang Qingcang fabricate the story because he could not admit that he fall for a useless fairy like her. Jieli’s words sparked an idea in Xiao Lan hua’s brain. She must treat Dongfang Qingcang nicely so she could escape from the Cangyan Sea.
The next morning, Shang Que reported that Xiao Lan Hua wanted to meet his Lord. When Dongfang Qingcang came, Xiao Lan Hua was acting coyly. But he did not even bat his eyes…😅
He mocked the little orchid because she tried to flatter him. However, he stayed when Xiao Lan Hua said that she made a flower cake.
Dongfang Qingcang asked her why the cake had a slightly different taste. Xiao Lan Hua explained that she put some honey from the grass that could make Dongfang Qingcang feel happy. Xiao Lan Hua thought that Dongfang Qingcang might feel sad because his family (Dongfang Xunfeng) did not welcome him when he returned to the Cangyan Sea. Dongfang Qingcang responded that he was not sad at all. In fact, he could not feel any emotion, or else he would not be able to control the hellfire.
His father did forbidden magic to have all his feeling and emotions removed to master the hellfire. Right now, Dongfang Qingcang would not hesitate at all if he had to kill his family. It was the same with love. He already had his love removed. Therefore, he would not fall in love.
Xiao Lan Hua thought about the blunt tree that she touched when she woke up at the Haotian Tower. The place was Dongfang Qingcang’s Sea of Heart, and the tree was his Love Tree. Xiao Lan Hua promised him that she’ll recover his Love Tree tree as a payback for all the good things he had done for her. Dongfang Qingcang did not believe that his Love tree could be recovered because its roots has been broken, and nobody could fix it.
Xiao Lan Hua asked for a drug that could amplify feelings to Jieli. Of course, Jieli refused to sell it to her, Xiao Lan Hua’s debt was more than 700 spirit stones. Xiao Lan Hua explained that since Dongfang Qingcang was connected to her through the Heart Curse, she would make him feel the emotions through her. Jieli reluctantly agree and gave her the drugs in credit.
Our dear little orchid picked the worst time to express her goodwill. Dongfang Qingcang was in a state meeting with his ministers when Xiao Lan Hua ate the drugs. She recalled every memory that reminded her of the 7 emotions. Unbeknownst to her, Dongfang Qingcang also felt amplified emotions during the meeting.
It was hilarious to see him laughing hysterically followed by crying profusely in front of his ministers. After he dismissed his court, Dongfang Qingcang ordered Shang Que to bring his You Jade Ring ASAP. Only then he could feel peaceful…🤣
The angry Moon Supreme Lord summoned Xiao Lan Hua and Jieli. He threatens to kill Jieli if they ever do that again. Xiao Lan Hua promised that she would not do that again.
Meanwhile, in Shuiyuntian, Rong Hao helped Changheng to remove the power seal from him.
Rong Hao reminded Changheng that going to the Cangyan Sea alone was a suicide mission because he had not fully recovered.
However, Changheng was determined to help the little orchid. All this time, his emperor brother only care for the reputation of Shuiyuntian and never let him fall in love. Now, since Xiao Lan Hua was in a bad situation he must help her whatever the price was.
Rong Hao said that he understood the feeling. He would not stop Changheng because if he ever got a chance to help his master, Rong Hao would do anything at any cost to help her too, because it is worth it. Changheng left afterward.
Well, let’s take another glimpse of the angry Moon Supreme Lord…😍
Changheng was in the middle of the Memory Loss River when an eye appeared in the sky. It was the Emperor of Shuiyuntian, Lord Yunzhong. He wanted to stop Changheng from going to the Cangyan Sea. Changheng protested that he only wanted to save his loved one. But the Emperor was not the merciful one, and he did not care about Changheng’s reason.
He accused Changheng to broke out of the Spirit Lock gate, committing a crime of collusion, and violating the immortal rules. Changheng was punished by the Emperor. His God Of War title was stripped and he would be imprisoned in the Haotian Tower.
Meanwhile, in the Silent Moon palace, Shang Que found Jieli wandering around in the garden. Jieli was too scared to sleep after Dongfang Qingcang threatened to kill her in the hall. Jieli nagged that she was just an orphan who wanted to make a living by running a shop. She was cheated on by Xiao Lan Hua, so she could only come to her. But it turned out that everybody wanted to kill her.
Shang Que was surprised that Jieli was an orphan. Shang Que told her that he was an orphan too. People tried to trick him and wanted to peel his dragon skin and bone because they were precious. Fortunately, Dongfang Qingcang helped him, otherwise, he’ll be dead by now. However, Shang Que was a softie at heart. He promised himself that he would not be like the bullies who lied and schemed. He would be an honest and trustworthy man.
Jieli laughed at Shang Que and called him stupid because, even after suffering, he still wanted to be an honest man. Others would be trampled on his sincerity. Shang Que looked at her and called her a cold-blooded person. Jieli did not refuse the title. She admitted that she was a cold-blooded and heartless person who rather cheats than be cheated on.
It was all because nobody saved her like Dongfang Qingcang saved Shang Que. Jieli did not trust anybody except herself. She emphasized that the most important thing in this world was her life and money.Shang Que thought that her words were wrong and ridiculous. He told her to return to her room and stop running around it in the middle of the night.
Die Yi reported to Rong Hao that Jieli had escaped to the Silent Moon Palace. However, she had already ordered some people to watch over her, so if she left the palace, they would capture her.
Why did Rong Hao want to catch Jieli? Did she have any secret that we didn’t know?
Jieli was still angry with Xiao Lan Hua. She refused to talk to her. She felt that Xiao Lan Hua cheated on her over drugs that almost kill her.
To coax her, Xiao Lan Hua lent her the Bone Orchid bracelet which could help Jieli to escape. Jieli was curious why did Xiao Lan Hua willing to lend her such an important thing to her. Xiao Lan Hua answered because they were friends that she was willing to help her. Besides, she believed that Jieli might seem tough, but she was actually a soft-hearted person.
Jieli wanted Xiao Lan Hua to go with her and send her to Nine Youxian County. It would be much more effective than the bracelet. But Xiao Lan Hua hesitated because Dongfang Qingcang was connected to her mind. He would feel it if she felt something during the journey.To solve the Heart Curse problem, Jieli gave her the Heart-Hidden hairpin (Hey Shang Que!! This was the thing that you’ve been looking for!).
Jieli told Xiao Lan Hua the story behind the hairpin. The Heart-Hidden hairpin was made by Yannv, the Moon Tribe ancestor that fell in love with Chonghua, the fairies’ ancestor. But then the Moon Tribe was betrayed and expelled by the fairies, and they had to break up.
To hide her feelings from Chonghua, Yannv made a hairpin that could conceal the mind of the wearer. The Heart-Hidden hairpin has the same function as the Dongfang Qingcang’s You Jade ring. Jieli told Xiao Lan Hua to wear the hairpin. And they left for the Nine Youxian County.
How could Jieli have this treasure? She really had many secrets. I bet her bag was as magical as Hermione’s bag…😁
However, when they reach the outside of Silent Moon palace, they meet Die Yi who waited for them. Xiao Lan Hua gave the Bone Orchid bracelet to Jieli so it could protect her. Jieli was surprised and stared at her. Jieli’s expression was heavy. Xiao Lan Hua steps forward to shield her. She thought that Die Yi came to her for the Destiny book. Xiao Lan Hua told Jieli to run while she prepared to face the whip.
The hairpin shone when Xiao Lan Hua was in danger. Dongfang Qingcang could not feel her, but an injury appeared on his hand. At the same time, Jieli managed to run to him and told him that Xiao Lan Hua was in danger.
The little orchid tried to take off the hairpin but it failed. The Destiny book dropped and distracted Die Yi. She swings her whip toward the book. However, all of a sudden, her whip broke into pieces and a white figure descended from above. Xiao Lan Hua gaped at Changheng and fainted.
When she woke up, she was already at Arbiter Hall. Changheng had taken her there because he had promised to take her back to Shuiyuntian. Xiao Lan Hua frantically reported that someone from Haishi city robbed a Destiny book. However, Changheng secured the book and also took it with him. Xiao Lan Hua calmed down after she saw the book was saved.
Xiao Lan Hua explained to Changheng that Dongfang Qingcang brought her to the Cangyan Sea because he wanted her to fix the book, not because she was a spy from Moon Tribe. Xiao Lan Hua also asked him to check on the book because it must hold some mystery since many people were after it. However, Changheng could not read it because it was broken. Xiao Lan Hua fixed the book after immediately because she was eager to prove that she was not the spy from the Moon Tribe.
When Changheng left the Arbiter Hall, he smiled before he fled and touched the sky. The orange sky turned into some sort of water surface. Changheng fled through the surface and came out from a small koi pond inside Liufang Pavilion.
That person was not Changheng, it was Rong Hao who disguised himself as Changheng! He did it to coax Xiao Lan Hua to fix the Destiny book willingly.
Dongfang Qingcang arrived at Liufang Pavilion in angry mode. Rong Hao was surprised that he arrived so soon. He still needs some time before Xiao Lan Hua could fix the book. Rong Hao quickly went to the Arbiter Hall inside the koi pond.
Dongfang Qingcang looked around the hall and found the small koi pond. He went inside and arrived in Thousand Dreamland. Inside the dreamland was like a kaleidoscope. Every mirror showed him the scene of Xiao Lan Hua fixing the Destiny book in Arbiter Hall. Rong Hao said that Dongfang Qingcang would never be able to break the illusion.
The book was finally recovered. When Xiao Lan Hua read the book, she found a mortal name in it, it was Xie Wanqing. Xiao Lan Hua’s eyes trailed into the wooden stand before her. She remembered that Dongfang Qingcang used to be angry and broke the book stand. But the wooden stand in front of her was intact. Only then the little orchid realized that something was wrong.
When Changheng asked her to hand him the book, the little orchid told him about the fireflies that Changheng sent to her. She asked him whether he was angry because she could not reply to his messages. When Changheng answered he was not angry, Xiao Lan Hua confirmed that the one who stood before her was not the real Changheng. She tried to run away, but Rong Hao could read her intention. Rong Hao said that it was unbelievable that Xiao Lan Hua could see through him. He strangled her and threw her to the floor before he took the Destiny book.
Meanwhile, Dongfang Qingcang used his hellfire sword to slash the mirrors. Every mirror was broken and the illusion cracked. He arrived just in time when Rong Hao nearly escaped. Dongfang Qingcang sneered at Rong Hao who dared to take his people.
AAAAHHHH… He announced that Xiao Lan Hua was his! 😱
Whoa, calm down writer! Continue to write!!!! 😆
Rong Hao could not believe that Dongfang Qingcang was able to break his illusion. Rong Hao attacked Dongfang Qingcang, but he was defeated in an instant. Rong Hao refuses to answer Dongfang Qingcang’s question about the book. When Dongfang Qingcang tried to take off the mask, Die Yi appeared and launched an attack on Xiao Lan Hua. Dongfang Qingcang immediately shielded her and Rong Hao used the chance to escape from that place.
Thank goodness that Xiao Lan Hua was able to retrieve the Destiny book while Rong Hao was busy with Dongfang Qingcang. Dongfang Qingcang took Xiao Lan Hua out of the Thousand Dreamland. Xiao Lan Hua tried to talk to Dongfang Qingcang, but he ignored her.
When Xiao Lan Hua thanked him for saving her, Dongfang Qingcang burst out in anger. He yelled that she dared to run away with weak power, and she could have died if he were late. Xiao Lan Hua squeaked that she did not want to run away because she had promised to fix his Love tree, she just wanted to help Jieli. But Dongfang Qingcang did not care about her reason. He told her to never leave his sight ever again. And she had to let him know whenever she go.
Oh boy… he was worried about her…🥰
In anger, Dongfang Qingcang destroyed the Soul Cauldron. All spirits run free from the cauldron. The snow and fog dispersed from Haishi city, and the sun shone at them.
Xiao Lan Hua, who apparently got better at coaxing, gave him the Destiny book. Dongfang Qingcang took the book and asked her, why did she fix it in a short time. Our orchid answered that she wanted to share his burden. But the Moon Supreme Lord snapped at her and told her to tell the truth…😅
Having no choice but, to tell the truth, Xiao Lan Hua told him the Lord of Haishy City pretended to be Changheng and asked her to fix the book. Her words sparked Dongfang Qingcang’s anger again. But this time, Xiao Lan Hua was able to coax him. She said that because of the wooden stand, she could see through Rong Hao’s scheme. Because they were the only ones who knew about the broken wooden stand.
When Xiao Lan Hua asked him how he could find her, Dongfang Qingcang answered that he would always be able to find her in an instant. Even if she run away to the edge of the world or there were thousand of identical Xiao Lan Hua, he would find her. Xiao Lan Hua cried in happiness because it was the same words that her master used to tell her. For Xiao Lan Hua, her master was the most important person for her. She almost said something about Dongfang Qingcang before her voice trailed off and she fainted.
Die Yi took Rong Hao to Spirit-Shattering Abyss in Xishan. She begged the Evil God, Tai Sui, to help her master. Tai Sui appeared and asked who could hurt Rong Hao because he was protected by evil spirits. When Tai Sui knew it was Dongfang Qingcang, he was happy to find an equal opponent. Rong Hao told Tai Sui that he already find the reincarnation of Xi Yun and he would bring her to Spirit-Shattering Abyss so Tai Sui could break out from the realm.
Dongfang Qingcang took Xiao Lan Hua back to the Cangyan Sea. But they did not go to the Silent Moon Palace. Instead, they went to the hunting camp, inside the Dark Pine Forest.
Xiao Lan Hua coaxed Dongfang Qingcang again. She promised him that she would not run around anymore. Dongfang Qingcang gave her grilled fish to eat because he knew that Xiao Lan Hua would be hungry.
Dongfang Qingcang questioned the hairpin. He recognized it as the Heart-Hidden hairpin and forbade her to wear it. However, Xiao Lan Hua refused because she did not want him to know what she was thinking. Dongfang Qingcang told her that because their mind was connected, he could protect her in time.
The little orchid was determined to wear the hairpin, she also told him that entering someone’s mind was just like entering someone’s house without permission. Everybody had a secret and she did not want him to know. Dongfang Qingcang responded that he used to know everything on her mind and she did not mind it at all. How could it be different now…
Dongfang Qingcang sullenly went to the bed while Xiao Lan Hua sit by the fire…😅
Of course, it was different now, Xiao Lan Hua already realized that she liked Dongfang Qingcang…😁
This is the best site for drama. The recaps are excellent.
Thank you for your comment, glad that you like our you recaps, much appreciate it 😊
Ugh. Yes, I disliked Jeili the first time through and never trusted her. This time I like her a bit more, but I’m still not her biggest fan. DFQC says he can’t fall in love but he already is, hee hee! Though they drive me nuts both pretending they’re not. Watching him go through the emotions was funnier this time, too, as last time I was angry at her for her timing choice because I was worried about repercussions. Again she wasn’t taking the danger of moon tribe seriously.
The giant eye reminded me of sauron, too!!
I loved when he rescued her!!! And saying that he would find her even at the end of the world… 😍😍😍 If she just takes the hairpin out we’d have a much shorter drama haha!
I know Rong Hao is a side character and I’ve seen people complain that they wasted time with him and his story but really it is HIS story because it’s all because of him and Chidi.
Another great recap!
