ARC 1 – The Way to become an Empress Part 26
It’s better to ask the Emperor, huh. For some reason, I kind of don’t want to see him for awhile.
Anyway, I switched topics.
“Okay… Enough of that heavy talk. I’m sorry for having you say that much. Then, I have another question… Speaking of first love, who is Sister Ming’s? The Emperor?”
I know the answer, but I just want to hear it directly from her. Besides, I want more details. Isn’t it just interesting to talk about other people’s love stories?
“Is Sister Ye wary of me?” Ming Yi Fei looked a little sad. “Sister Ye doesn’t have to worry. The Emperor’s not my first love, and I don’t love him that way even now. I’m actually…” Ming Yi Fei’s face then turned red. “The one I like is Qing Jing Tian, the Emperor’s most trusted aide… The Emperor actually knows of this… he’s just looking for the right time to divorce me. Besides…” the mood fell down again. “Qing Jing Tian, he… he still doesn’t know.”
I then held Ming Yi Fei’s hands.
“Sister Ming, I’m not wary of you. I was just curious. And, it’s you who should not worry. If it’s Sister Ming, I know you can definitely make that person notice your feelings and fall for you.”
“Sister Ye is only saying that because you don’t know Qing Jing Tian that much. He’s a very serious and uptight person. He values working for the Emperor more than anything else. Up until now, I heard from the Emperor that he has never been with a woman before.”
Never been with a woman before, huh… Reminds me of somebody.
“If it’s like that, then you can just have him make you his first woman, no?”
Ming Yi Fei’s face turned as red as a ripe tomato.
“Sister Ye is only saying that because you have experience. I-I haven’t done anything like that.”
“All you need is some confidence. I’ll teach you, not in practical though, some methods you can use to get your beloved. But first, I want to know how you came to like him.”
Ming Yi Fei turned even redder.
“…I met him when I first came back to the royal capital. I was sad from having heard of my sister’s death, and it became hard for me to always stay at home, where just about everywhere and everything reminds me of her. So, my parents allowed me to go out to the city and explore. Of course, I was with escorts. However, due to the crowd, I suddenly got separated from them. And then that’s when I met him.”
Hmmm… The typical saving a damsel in distress, huh.
“He guided me through the city, making me try things I’ve never had before, making me see sights I’ve never seen before, while at the same time, helping me look for my escorts. When we finally found them, he left immediately. It seems he was in a rush, but he still made time to help me…”
“So that’s why. How cute. …Then, my turn. Shall I teach you things to make him dance in the palm of your hand?”
“N-not necessarily to that extent, Sister Ye.”
“It’s fine, it’s fine. Don’t hold back. You’ll learn from the best.”
And then I taught her the ways of a woman.
Everyone in the room, including the maids who of course have no experience, were very red by the time I finished.
Was I a little too much?
The sound of loud footsteps can be heard in the hallway. The door to my room was then suddenly opened aggressively.
Hmm? Deja vu?
I was once again inspected by Ji Zhen Tian who came rushing here. After finding out nothing’s wrong with me, he sighed, relieved.
Even though I said I don’t want to see him for awhile, but now that he’s here, I just don’t have another choice now, don’t I?
“Is it my turn now with the Emperor?” I drew circles on his chest with my finger.
Ji Zhen Tian grabbed my hand that was doing so, and looked me in the eyes.
“You bumped into that Li Ming again?”
“U-un.” I nodded.
“He hugged you?” His eyes narrowed, looking scary now.
“I’m not sure if I should call it a hug. I was only caught to stop falling.”
“That bastard.” Ji Zhen Tian said in a low voice, but of course since I’m so close, I heard him.
Ji Zhen Tian then attacked my lips, his kiss so aggressive that I moved backwards, until I fell into the bed.
