Chen-San attended the Yuan-xiao lantern festival at Chaozhou and met Wu-niang by coincidence. Love blossomed between the two. Wu-niang subsequently met the wealthy Lin Da. She disliked his uncouth, frivolous personality. However, Lin Da was enchanted by the beauty of Wu-niang and conspired with Zhuo Er to marry her.
