Hola Readers… Another Love Between Fairy and Devil episode recap for you. In this episodes 24 and 25, the Flora Day finally arrived. It means the wedding and Xie Wanqing’s death were around the corner. Meanwhile, the tension was increasing and Xiao Lan Hua was still confused about her feelings for Changheng or Dongfang Qingcang. Enough with the ramble, let’s start!
Xiao Lan Hua and Jieli still persuaded Dongfang Qingcang to marry Xie Wanqing. But Dongfang Qingcang was determined to refuse the idea. Xiao Lan Hua explained to him that the marriage was just an act but they had to do it for the sake of their plans. But the jealous Dongfang Qingcang accused her as a careless person who was eager to marry Changheng. His words ignited the anger in her.
Their quarrel was not over yet when Shang Que came to report that Xie Wanqing had come to their residence with one intention: to propose to Dongfang Qingcang. The Moon Supreme Lord rushed to stop Xie Wangqing from entertaining the wrong idea. Xiao Lan Hua was furious and ordered him to stop because the proposal was a good chance for them.
The Xilan seal on Dongfang Qingcang forehead shone the moment Xiao Lan Hua said stop, and made him unable to move. Xiao Lan Hua still did not realize that something was wrong with him. She ordered Dongfang Qingcang to follow her to receive Xie Wanqing and forbade him from talking.
Xie Wanqing came with her dowry to propose to him. Because Xiao Lan Hua ordered Dongfang Qingcang not to talk, his lips were sealed and could not utter the rejection. But somehow, when she saw him not say any rejection for the proposal, Xiao Lan Hua was angry. She gave the dowries to Dongfang Qingcang and express her dissatisfaction. She accused him of being too cooperative and also wanted to get married himself.
Meanwhile, Xie Wanqing was ecstatic about the wedding, Xiao Lan Hua was disturbed by some thoughts. She asked Xie Wanqing about “her friend” who fall in love with someone from different status and also a mortal enemy of her family. As a perceptive person, Xie Wanqing was able to guess that the friend Xiao Lan Hua mentioned was herself.
But of course, the little orchid would not admit it, she repeated her words to Xie Wanqing that it was the story of her friend. Xie Wanqing’s answers made Little orchid dumbfounded. Xie Wanqing told Xiao Lan Hua that the two people she mentioned were the biggest fools in the world because they give up their heart’s desire for something other than themselves. They should not give up on their love.
It almost midnight at the mansion, Dongfang Qingcang stared at the incense intently. He waited for the day to change and the Xilan seal’s effect dissapeared so he could talk. And the first sentence he said were a question for Shang Que about what Xiao Lan Hua meant when she said that he also wanted to marry Xie Wanqing. He intrepreted her words that Xiao Lan Hua must be wanting to marry Changheng as well.
The poor Shang Que could not answer his question at all, so he suggested his master ask Xiao Lan Hua directly. Dongfang Qingcang sighed and lamented. He always felt superior to Changheng, the God of War. But now when Xiao Lan Hua could not forget her feeling even when Changheng was a foolish mortal, it brought some sense of inferiority inside him.
Dongfang Qingcang ordered Jieli to ask Xiao Lan Hua about her feeling, while he eavesdropped nearby. Xiao Lan Hua said that she had been in love with Changheng, and she did not like Dongfang Qingcang. She declared that she was not the kind of person who easily change her mind. Xiao Lan Hua asked Jieli whether she liked Shang Que or Qu Shui and she answered that she did not like both of them. They were just a companion for her.
Jieli explained to the Moon Supreme Lord that a girl’s mind is hard to fathom because they tend to say the opposite of their feelings, especially in front of somebody they liked. She suggested Dongfang Qingcang to take off his You Jade ring and replace the Heart-Hidden Pin, so he could listen to Xiao Lan Hua’s mind.
When Dongfang Qingcang went to Xiao Lan Hua’s bedroom to change the pin, Shang Que confirmed Jieli’s feelings for him. But what she said broke his heart. Jieli said that she was different from any other girl. She did not have any heart because she already sold it for a living.
Jieli’s words meant that she did not have any feelings for anybody because she was too busy surviving. For her, feelings were only a passing flicker that was not worthy to be believed. She only believed in money that save her life.
I feel sad for Jieli. She lived a harsh life and she strived to survive…😟
Dongfang Qingcang switched Xiao Lan Hua’s Heart-Hidden hairpin with a counterfeit hairpin, so it would not obstruct him from listening to her mind. But he was hesitant because he knew Xiao Lan Hua did not like him to pry into her thoughts. On the second thought, Dongfang Qingcang changed his mind and took the counterfeit pin away.
Ahhh.. there are so many changes in our Moon Supreme Lord. If he was still the person he used to be, he would not bother to respect her decision at all.
Xiao Run came to Dongfang’s mansion early in the morning to take Xiao Lan Hua for a morning walk. Dongfang Qingcang wanted to avoid him, but he failed. Although Dongfang Qingcang showed a hostile attitude, Xiao Run was unshakeable. He happily said that he was there to help Xiao Lan Hua to get to know him better.
Xiao Run took Xiao Lan Hua on a walk in the street. However, the little orchid was distracted. Everything she saw made her remember Dongfang Qingcang. From the steamed cake that reminded her of the time when Dongfang Qingcang called her stupid, the flowers that reminded her of the time when Dongfang Qingcang put the flower on her head, and a boat trip invitation reminded her of the time when she sent Dongfang Qingcang to Cangyan Sea. All of the memories overwhelmed her that she left Xiao Run. It was too bad that Dongfang Qingcang could not read her mind.
However, in her confusion, Xiao Lan Hua also recalled the time when she met Changheng and was smitten by him in the forest. The little orchid told Xiao Run that she had known him a long time ago and had waited for the moment when she could spend time with him. Xiao Run was confused because he did not remember their past. Xiao Run gave her his jade, he said that the jade was found on his birth coat and represented his wealth and prosperity.
However, he always felt that the jade belonged to someone he really loved and he believed that someone was Xiao Lan Hua. The jade made Xiao Lan Hua remember the time when she talked about the jade, the firefly, and her dream to be destined with Changheng. The topics that made Dongfang Qingcang furious back then. She smiled when she remembered how angry Dongfang Qingcang was.
In the corridor, Dongfang Qingcang saw her smiling and thought that Xiao Lan Hua always smiled when she was with Changheng. But with him, she was always sad. He admitted that he always left her, was mean to her, and made her cry. It was natural if she did not like him. He left the corridor afterwards. Xiao Lan Hua saw him leaving and chased him. She had something to say to him.
However, Dongfang Qingcang had an appointment with Xie Wanqing. They would ride a boat and admire the moon together. Xiao Lan Hua stopped him but she could not say the reason why he should not go. Dongfang Qingcang sneered that he did not need her permission to meet others. And he left her alone.
Oh boy!… the misunderstanding was getting deeper between them. 😱
At Xiao’s residence, Qu Shui took the wrong wedding attire for Xiao Run. He went back to Dongfang manor to change it. At the same time, Shang Que and Jieli talked about Xie Wanqing’s death on Flora Day. Jieli said that if Xie Wanqing died, the lord would also kill Xiao Run. They did not know that Qu Shui listened to their conversation from behind the door. He was shocked to know that the wedding was a conspiracy. He ran back home to warn Xiao Run, but got hit by a carriage and died. She went back to Shuiyuntian as Fairy Danyin.
Xiao Lan Hua wanted to return the Magical Firefly Stone because Changheng was going to face tribulation. Dongfang Qingcang who was jealous because she kept looking at the stone, sneered at her because she held the stone in her hand all day.
Well… My lord, did you see any pockets on her dress? It was natural for her to hold it in her hand!🤯
Xiao Lan Hua sneered back at him reminded him of his good date under the moon with a beautiful woman. Both of them could not hide their jealousy but were too proud to admit it.
Danyin was called to face a trial at Shuiyuntian. She was convicted as guilty because she had released Changheng from Haotian Tower and she shall be stripped of her immortal bone and sent to Shenshui Hall to become a mortal forever. But the Heavenly Emperor gave Danyin a chance to redeem her sin if she could kill Chidi Nüzi and stop Dongfang Qingcang from releasing 100,000 Moon tribe’s soldiers.
Danyin refused the order because Chidi Nüzi’s mortal fate was related to Changheng’s. If Chidi Nüzi was killed, it would disrupt Changheng’s fate at Yunmeng Lake. And if Changheng failed to completed the hardship, his primordial spirits would vanish, and he would turn into ashes. But the Emperor said that even if Changheng was able to return to Shuiyuntian, he would be deemed as a sinner.
If he was dead, it could be counted as taking the responsibility for his position as the God of War. Danyin still refused the command and demanded Lord Yunzhong to take back the order. However, her father seal her voice and promised the Emperor that his daughter would completed the mission.
Jieli and Shang Que were busy decorating the mansion. There were many customs in the mortal wedding ceremony, nevertheless, they would make it simple right now. Jieli was angry with the servants for losing a pearl. Xie Wanqing came to Xiao Lan Hua’s room and brought her jewelry case when she heard that Xiao Lan Hua has lost a pearl.
Xiao Lan Hua let her decorate her hair with a hairpin because Xie Wanqing wanted to help Xiao Lan Hua with her wedding. She told the Little Orchid that after tonight, she would be Xiao Lan Hua’s sister-in-law and she would take care of her. Xiao Lan Hua was overwhelmed by her kindness. She felt guilty because, after the wedding, Xie Wanqing would be dead.
Meanwhile, Dongfang Qingcang was pestered by Xiao Run. His face was sullen when they received guests. Completely the opposite of the smiling face of Xiao Run.
Dongfang Qingcang saw Xiao Lan Hua sitting by herself in a pavilion. Xiao Lan Hua told him to talk to her because she was in a bad mood at that moment. She told him that she used to treat mortal fates as red leaves from the fate tree. She was indifferent to their happiness, sadness, life, and death.
But now after she experienced the life of a mortal, she found out that marriage, funerals, happiness, and sadness were the most important things for mortals. She also felt sad and guilty when she saw Xie Wanqing. Dongfang Qingcang also felt the same towards Xiao Run.
Meanwhile, Xiao Run was ecstatic when he saw Qu Shui returned to the mansion. However, Qu Shui’s expression was sad. He asked him what happened, but Qu Shui kept his mouth closed. Therefore, to cheer him up, Xiao Run told him that he would find a beautiful girl from a good family for him to marry. When Xiao Run fixed his wedding attire, he found the missing pearl bead. He ordered Xiao Run to return it to Xiao Lan Hua.
Qu Shui went to Xiao Lan Hua’s room and told her that Xiao Run had a message for her. After Xie Wanqing and the servants left the room, Qu Shui changed his attitude to Danyin’s. She sneered at Xiao Lan Hua that she must be very happy because she finally able to marry Changheng.
Xiao Lan Hua guessed that she was Danyin and not Qu Shui. The fact that Danyin was standing in front of her made Xiao Lan Hua ecstatic. She was happy to hear Danyin’s sneer at her and saw her mocking expression. Danyin asked her why she mingled with Dongfang Qingcang and Xiao Lan Hua could not answer her question.
Danyin told her that Lord Yunzhong knew Changheng had gone to Yunmeng Lake to experience hardships. And to stop Dongfang Qingcang, Danyin was ordered to kill Chidi Nüzi and sacrifice Changheng for Shuiyuntian. Danyin was determined to save Changheng even though she must die. Xiao Lan Hua told Danyin that on the wedding night, Changheng must kill Xie Wanqing.
Then both of them would be considered to have experienced hardships successfully. But Danyin was skeptical because she knew that with Xiao Run’s personality, he could not kill people at all. Danyin found a strategy to make Xiao Run kill Xie Wanqing. She would use Xiao Lan Hua a hostage. When they were in a hurry, Rong Hao suddenly appeared before them.
Rong Hao said that he was there to help Changheng. He said that one of them must keep an eye on Dongfang Qingcang. Rong Hao was sure that Dongfang Qingcang would kill Changheng that night. He was the most powerful person in the three realms and the only one who could fight him was Changheng. Rong Hao told Orchid that she was the only one who could do it because she was the one who was close to the Moon Supreme Lord.
Rong Hao revealed that Changheng went to the mortal world and experienced hardship because of Xiao Lan Hua. All this time, she had always been the one Changheng loved the most. However, because Changheng had an engagement with the Goddess of Xilan, he could not tell her about his feeling. Over the years, Changheng had been looking for the Goddess everywhere to cancel the engagement so they could be together. And the firefly stone was initially a gift for her from him.
Xiao Lan Hua’s mind was in mess right now. She was already confused about her feeling for Changheng and Dongfang Qingcang. And what Rong Hao told her just now only added another confusion in her mind. She tried to explain that Dongfang Qingcang was a good person to them but she was scolded by Danyin for speaking up for him.
Rong Hao too said that if they lost Chidi Nüzi’s primordial spirit, he would never meet his master and the three realms would fall into misery because Dongfang Qingcang intended to release 100,000 demon soldiers so he could invade Shuiyuntian. Xiao Lan Hua was stunned whe she heard it. She did not want to believe Rong Hao’s words. She was disappointed because it means Dongfang Qingcang lied to her back then when she asked about his intention in Yunmeng Lake.
Rong Hao gave her a bottle of poison to weaken the Moon Supreme Lord. Danyin warned her to make sure Dongfang Qingcang drank the poison and Rong Hao reminded her about Changheng’s safety and the to prevent the war while returning the pearl bead that fall from her wedding crown.
The wedding between the couples was held grandly. Xiao Lan Hua walked with a complicated expression while Dongfang Qingcang had a sullen expression. On the contrary, Xiao Run and Xie Wanqing’s faces were brimming with happiness.
When Xiao Run went to the wedding chamber, he saw Xie Wanqing on the bed. Both of them were surprised. He thought that he went to the wrong room. At the same time, Dongfang Qingcang sat with Xiao Lan Hua at a pavilion. They recalled a night when they walked together in the Cangyan Sea.
Dongfang Qingcang told her that they had only known each other for three months, but he felt that they have known each other for 30,000 years. He already saw her in Shuiyuntian attire, Moon tribe attire, and mortal attire. But for him, the little orchid looked prettiest in the wedding dress. Xiao Lan Hua was silent the whole time. When Dongfang Qingcang offered her a toast, he said that he felt happy because although the wedding was fake, it felt real to him.
Xiao Lan Hua stopped him when he almost drank the wine and asked him about his intention at Lucheng City. Dongfang Qingcang refused to answer and dodged the question by saying that his intention has nothing to do with her. Xiao Lan Hua concluded that he was there to kill her people and friends. Of course, it has something to do with her.
Tears rolled down her face when Dongfang Qingcang said that he was the Moon Supreme Lord who wanted to destroy Shuiyuntian and avenged the Moon tribe. The little orchid thought that she could change his mind about the war after he tasted a peaceful life in Lucheng City and made friends with Xiao Run. But Xiao Run was not Changheng.
Dongfang Qingcang still held a grudge from thousands of years ago, and he would not hesitate to kill Changheng when he saw him. If Xiao Lan Hua hated him for this, then he could not do anything. Xiao Lan Hua put down her wedding crown on the table.
Unbeknownst to her, the real poison for Dongfang Qingcang was in her pearl bead which Rong Hao put evil spirits in it. The evil spirits were the only thing that could injured Dongfang Qingcang.
Xie Wanqing looked for Dongfang Qingcang when she heard the flute sound. When she turned around, she saw Rong Hao standing behind her. The flute sound recalled her past memories. She remembered the little kid that stood in the snow and played the flute to get some money. Rong Hao called her and asked her to follow him.
Meanwhile, Xiao Lan Hua told Dongfang Qingcang that she did not hate him and she knew that many families were waiting for their family members or that the people in Cangyan Sea relied on him. But right now, she did not know what to do. Xiao Lan Hua cried profusely and her crying touched Dongfang Qingcang’s heart.
Xiao Run met Danyin, he was surprised to see her in a woman’s attire. Danyin told him to go back to Shuiyuntian and try to make him remember his real identity as Changheng, but she failed.
Xiao Lan Hua saw black masses seeping out from the pearl bead. She recalled that it was Rong Hao who gave her the bead and it made her realize the situation. She immediately pushed Dongfang Qingcang and told him to stay away from the black masses tornado that surrounded her.
Evil spirits seeped out from Chidi Nüzi’s body and her hellfire mark. At the moment she was posessed by the evil spirits and it whispered inside her mind. When she met Changheng and Danyin in a corridor, Danyin saw the black mass around Chidi Nüzi and recognize it as an evil spirits that appeared at the examination. She used her power to shield Xiao Run. But when Chidi Nüzi drew her sword to attack her, Xiao Run blocked the sword for her. He was stabbed by Chidi Nüzi’s sword and because his injury was too severe, Xiao Run died not long after.
At the same time, Dongfang Qingcang used his hellfire to force his way inside the black masses to get to Xiao Lan Hua. He was injured by the evil spirit but managed to make it dispersed.
When Xiao Lan Hua saw Dongfang Qingcang, she immediately embraced him. She was so scared and worried for him. Dongfang Qingcang asked Xiao Lan Hua who prepared the poison and evil spirits. The little orchid told him that it was Rong Hao who did it.
Dongfang Qingcang recognized Rong Hao as the one and only disciple of Chidi Nüzi. He was furious and went after Chidi Nüzi disregarding Xiao Lan Hua’s call. He went to Xie Wanqing’s room but nobody was there. Dongfang Qingcang seemed to notice Danyin who hide in the corner with Xiao Run’s body, but he ignored them completely. Danyin who was deeply saddened promised that she would avenge Changheng’s death.
Chidi Nüzi attacked Xiao Lan Hua because her inner voice told her that Dongfang Qingcang chose the little orchid over her and betrayed her. The voices blamed Xiao Lan Hua for taking her husband away from her. Blinded by hatred, Chidi Nüzi raised her sword to kill Xiao Lan Hua.
My goodness… This episodes was sooo tense! From happiness to sadness, and from marriage to death. I guessed that this is the end of Yunmeng lake so-called vacation. It was too bad because I really enjoyed the annoying relationship between Xiao Run and Dongfang Qingcang.
