The ninth Princess Xu Chuyue and the decisive General Xue Yao have never interacted before, but they were brought together by a palace assassination.
Xue Yao blocked an arrow to save the princess, and the princess concealed his identity in return for saving her life.
They were granted a marriage by the emperor, living together. Their grudges and misunderstandings were solved.
Xue Yao thought that the princess was very strange, so he not only put her on an ankle chain but also tied her to a stake as an arrow target, in order to force her to tell him what she had seen and heard that night at the palace.

However, they fell in love because of sleeping together. Because Chuyue discovered that Xue Yao can cure nightmares, she gradually attached to him, and the general also gradually treated the lovely princess with tenderness.
