ARC 1 – The Way to become an Empress Part 6
In the Emperor’s study.
“Your Majesty, someone sent you soup again.” The head eunuch knocked and respectfully said.
“Li Zhen Zhen again? I don’t need it.” Ji Zhen Tian coldly snorted.
‘What is she planning this time?’ Ji Zhen Tian thought.
“Your Majesty, the Empress did send you soup, but another consort also did so.” The eunuch replied.
“Who is it?” The Emperor said uninterestedly.
“It is Imperial Consort Ye.” Now Ji Zhen Tian was surprised.
“She went out of her way to ask her kitchen personnel to cook soup for me?” He was a little happy.
“Actually, Your Majesty, I heard from the servants who brought the soup that Imperial Consort Ye made it herself. The cooks in her palace kitchen merely taught her what to do.” Now Ji Zhen Tian was even more surprised and happy.
“She did?” A slight smile appeared on his face without him realizing it.
‘The Emperor looks happy.’ Thought the head eunuch.
“Bring it in.” The head eunuch bowed and let the servants bring the soup Alina made.
Ji Zhen Tian brought the soup into his mouth. ‘Delicious’ he thought.
“It seems Imperial Consort Ye has a talent for cooking. Gift her cloths and jewelry as thanks for the delicious soup. Also reward the cooks in her palace 3 silver taels each for doing a great job teaching and assisting her.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
Ji Zhen Tian finished the soup immediately, and was in a good mood continuing his work. Li Zhen Zhen completely slipped off his mind.
《Favorability rating is now 40.》 The system prompted in Alina’s head.
In a certain room in another palace.
“How did it go? Did he enjoy it?”
“Empress, the Emperor declined once again. …..”
“Hmm, well, I don’t think it’s that easy to make him accept my gifts and trust me. …Why do you look uneasy?”
“….Empress, actually….” the servant stuttered.
“What is it? Speak immediately.”
“Another consort sent the Emperor soup… and he accepted it.”
“Consort?” The glint in Li Zhen Zhen’s eyes changed dangerously.
“Yes, Empress. It is Imperial Consort Ye.”
Li Zhen Zhen’s eyes narrowed and the look in her eyes was even more dangerous. Cold sweat ran through the servant’s back.
“That bitch!” Li Zhen Zhen screamed, but she managed to hold herself back from lashing out on the servant and throwing things in the room.
The servant became even more frightened.
“You all, get out!” Li Zhen Zhen shouted all her servants away.
“That bitch. Is she out to ruin my plans again in this life?!” Li Zhen Zhen bit her thumb and anxiously walked around the room, trying to calm down.
“It’s fine. I’m still okay. As long as that bitch won’t get pregnant, the Emperor can’t send me away.” Li Zhen Zhen thought of a plan.
