I just started reading this and so far Im liking this story, and its captivating how the males leads interacts with our female lead in this story. How one of them tries to hold on to his love even thought he was aware that she would never be his while one still longs for his other half, no pain or betrayal could ever hamper.
This is xian xia novels which means gods in chinese and would usually have eye boggling time skips that would span for thousands of years.
The first few chapters were translated by xia0yuer

The novel in original language is already finished while the english translation is almost done about 89 % last time I checked 🙂
This is the summary. I got this from xia0yuer blog.
In the prehistoric times, the 200,000 year of Tian Yuan, the flower deity Zi Fen dies after giving birth to a daughter. Before she passed, she fed her daughter the Unfeeling Pill, ordered her subordinates to keep the girl’s birth story a secret and to imprison her within Shui Jing for ten thousand years. The girl’s name is Jin Mi.
Four thousand years later, the Heavenly Emperor’s second son, the Phoenix Fire Deity was entrapped by someone and mistakenly entered Shui Jing. He was saved by the ignorant Jin Mi. After living together for a hundred years, the Fire Deity gradually developed feelings for Jin Mi. Who would have thought that he would be attracted to Jin Mi?
In between the Heavenly World and the Devil World, there is an immeasurably deep River of Forgetfulness, where the war between the Fire Deity and Night Deity finally erupts.
