He became friends with Yan-Dan & helped her with her play. While writing the play, Yan-Dan noticed someone kept flipping the Divine turtle onto his back & was determined to lớn find out who was the culprit. She was unsuccessful, even though she tried many times & phối many traps.

Yan-Dan helped Celestial Deity Bei-Ming, who was always kind to lớn her, solve many chess problems sent by Lord Ying-Yuan. She was re-assigned to lớn Yan-Xu Heavenly Palace by Lord Ying-Yuan to lớn become his Immortal attendant, because of her expertise in chess. He realized Yan-Dan's potential & decided to lớn train her, unbeknownst to lớn her. He noted she was a quick & clever learner, but uninspired & lazy. He would punish her for any infractions, no matter how minor, by having her copy the heavenly scriptures numerous times. She felt lượt thích he was torturing her & complained constantly. She accidentally discovered demon spies. With help from Lord Ying-Yuan, the demon spies were vanquished.

Eventually, war between the Immortals & the Demons broke out.

The flame poison would make him go crazy & eventually, he would die. The only cure was the heart blood of a Four-leaf lotus. Lord Ying-Yuan refused to lớn risk the life of the twin lotus sisters to lớn save himself. He was ashamed of the great loss of his companions & other heavenly soldiers.

Yan-Dan created a cottage next to lớn the sacred tree, unchained Lord Ying-Yuan from the tree, & treated him with her lotus breath in the cottage which helped to lớn alleviate the effects of the flame poison. He carved her a lotus blossom incense burner from agarwood. While helping the Divine turtle to lớn go down to lớn the mortal world, she, inadvertently, found out the cure for the flame poison. Using the Lucid Dream butterfly, Yan-Dan saw how much Lord Ying-Yuan was in love with her & she with him. She used half of her heart to lớn cure Lord Ying-Yuan, because she couldn't bear to lớn see him suffer in pain or die from the flame poison.

After Lord Ying-Yuan was cured, he was returned to lớn Yan-Xu Heavenly palace. When he awoke, he had to lớn act indifferent to lớn Yan-Dan to lớn keep her safe. Yan-Dan became upset because she thought Lord Ying-Yuan forgot his promises to lớn her to lớn recognize her when he awoke & smell the lotus blossoms in the pond in front of the cottage. She believed he cared for her sister Zhi-Xi as he was led to lớn believe Zhi-Xi saved him, but Lord Ying-Yuan knew who really saved him & Zhi-Xi had lied about it. Zhi-Xi lied to lớn him, because she wanted him to lớn protect her from Curator Ying-Deng.
