Grown up in poverty, Jiang Xin earned a living as a street entertainer and magician with her father and a pet monkey. With a deep dislike for people in the underground businesses, Jiang Xin’s impression of Bai Zheng Jie being a life savior immediately went down the drain after being experiencing a gun fight between him and his assassinates. Despite being newly attached with Sheng Jie Wen, a blind young master of a fallen family, Bei Zheng Jie did not stop his pursuit of Jiang Xin after numerous rejections. Feeling weak and helpless, Sheng Wen Jie when headed overseas to seek treatment for his eyes and promise to marry Jiang Xin when he returns.

Of which the house-keeper then arranged for Jiang Xin to return back to reunite with her biological family. Du Xiao Han, who happened to be on the same train as Jiang Xin after running away from her debtors, impersonated Jiang Xin to reunite with the rich family and successfully became the missy (千金).
When fate arranged for Bai Zheng Jie to find Jiang Xin unconscious with a loss of memory after a train accident, Bai Zheng Jie took Jiang Xin home to recuperate without hesitation. It would be the perfect chance to manipulate Jiang Xin’s memory and trick her into believing she was in love with him.
