Romance by the Peach Blossom Lakeside
Ren Jincheng, prince of Eastern Qi, falls in love with a village girl, Zhu Danfeng. However, the Emperor’s sister is displeased with their love and forces them to separate. Later, Ren goes to Nanping to propose to the Queen with a view to soliciting her help to strengthen Eastern Qi.

Not until Ren arrives at the imperial court does he realize that the Queen is the village girl he meets earlier. Ren is therefore made the husband of the Queen. However, the second princess of Nanping strongly objects to the marriage and accuses Ren of molestation. Unable to defend himself, Ren is deprived of the title and suffers a deadly insult. The angry Ren then returns to Eastern Qi, swearing to seek a revenge for the humiliation.

Meanwhile, the two princes of Western Shu and Northern Zhou strive to be the first to capture Nanping so as to marry the Queen and get the state. Suddenly, Nanping is encircled by the enemy forces on different sides.

The Bound-feet Liu Jinding Crashes Four Gates
Song Emperor Zhao Kuangyin is trapped in Shouzhou City.  Gao Junbao, under the orders of his mother, leads an army to save him.  Passing by Mountain Shuangsuo, he runs into Liu Jinding, the chief of the brigands residing on the mountain.  Jinding is putting up a stone plate indicating that she is looking for a husband.  Her boastfulness enrages Junbao and prompts him into breaking the plate.  As such the brigands get into a fight with the soldiers.  Jinding outdoes Junbao in tactics so much so that she can thrice capture and release him.  Junbao is won over eventually.  Before departure, he leaves her as a token for their engagement the golden mace awarded to him by the emperor.

Junbao moves on to Shouzhou City for his rescue mission.  There he is, however, overcome by a nasty cold that makes him bedridden.  All he can do is write a letter to Jinding to express his tender feelings.  Worried about her love, Jinding decides to go to his help.  She crashes four barricades to rescue the emperor with his followers, and then cures Junbao of his persistent ailment.
