There she meets a green snake demon, Xiao Qing, who causes disasters in the area she lived (China tour deals). Bai Shuzhen holds her captive at the bottom of a lake, though she promises the green snake that she'll come back in three hundred years to free her.

After three hundred years she keeps her promise and frees her. They bond as sisters. They meet a sorcerer called FaHai who believes that every demon should be destroyed. But Bai was too powerful and he can't eliminate her immediately so he vows that he will if he sees them again.

Fearing that they would meet more human sorcerers, Bai and Qing retreat into the world between demon and human world called Ban Bu Duo where they try to do good things by bringing rain to places that hasn't had any water for three years. But Qing was careless and almost flooded the whole town. because of this, Bai sadly loses her chance of becoming a goddess.

However Guan Yin informs her that she may have yet another opportunity.

In the meantime Bai and Qing accidentally brought a scholar Xu Xian and his friend to the demon world. Bai protected them from demons and in the process fell in love with Xu Xian. After the battle with the Leader of the underworld, Xu Xian (Student tours to China) confesses his feelings for Bai, claiming that it was love at first sight. But in order for a human to go back to the human world they have to become unconscious and in the process also forget their time in the demon world. Xu Xian knows and avoids being knocked out. However, FaHai somehow found a way into the demon world and seeing Xu Xian, tricks him into being knocked out.

Now Xu Xian is back into the human world and has forgotten everything. Since he and his friend went through the portal separately they land in separate places. There Xu Xian meets many new people.

Soon after Bai takes the final step to becoming a goddess which is to collect human tears. Bai sees Xu Xian with another girl and assumes that they are a couple. The former green snake, Xiao Qing, realizes that when Xu Xian and Bai meet, Xu Xian will again fall in love with Bai and so arranges a meeting. They then got married, opened a medicine shop and lived happily.
