Ma Zhaixing, the daughter of Kuizhou city governor Ma Ying, met a kind-hearted teenage boy who grew up in the mountain forest. When the teenage boy saved a young wolf, he was implicated in a murder and was hunted down, falling off a cliff. He was adopted as a son by Chu Kui, (the emperor of Yang empire) and given the title of Prince Bo. Eight years later, Prince Bo encountered Ma Zhaixing by chance. He liked the wisdom and bravery of Ma Zhaixing. Ma Zhaixing also found that although Prince Bo was in a high status, he still retains his natural kindness and sense of justice.
