Empress with no Virtue Chapter 10
Even until the dinner banquet with his ministers, Ji Wu Jiu can still vaguely see the spinning circles. Ye Zhen Zhen is really like a curse. She also gifted him the dancer, and because of his status and pride, he had no choice but to accept it. Even thinking about it makes him speechless.
Originally, Ye Zhen Zhen only wanted to anger the emperor a little, but accidently hurt another person.. Li Concubine..
Li Concubine counted her toads and compared with Xian Concubine's, and found out that Xian Concubine has more, although Zhuang Concubine has more than both of them (13 toads one shot previously), that was another case.
That means, ever since Xian Concubine entered the palace, she served the emperor more than her.
Li Concubine was afraid that she will lose power soon, and furthermore the emperor's attitude towards her has also cooled down more if compared with previously. She needs to think on how to win over Xian Concubine as well as to attract the emperor's attention again.
To play the zither during the birthday celebrations was such a good opportunity, as she was the best in the inner palace she believed. The plan started well, until Ye Zhen Zhen called out the weird dancer.
Everyone's attention was only given to the dancer, wherever she danced towards, the people's eyes will surely follow. The emperor also stopped her zither playing, which is the first time since she entered the palace.
The plan to shine again was a failure, hating on Wang Zhao Yi, Xian Concubine as well and of course she hates the empress the most. Then, the next day the empress was sending out gifts to each palace.
The empress's family is very rich, besides food, Ye Zhen Zhen doesn't really care about the other things, and when she is in a good mood, even without proper reasons she will distribute some gifts to the other consorts in the palace. So now, the maid servants and eunuchs was carrying these gifts and heading towards the palaces of the other consorts.
In order to show hierarch, the gifts for the 3 concubines, will be brought by the closest maid servants and eunuchs of the empress.
The one that went to Lu Hua Palace is Su Yue. She was followed by 2 little eunuchs, carrying brocades, jewelry and etc, while she wasn't carrying anything. After reaching Lu Hua Palace, she bowed a little and said "This is the gifts bestowed by the empress, to thank your hard work during the birthday celebration yesterday, please check them niang niang"
The moment she mentioned "birthday celebration" Li Concubine's face changed.
Actually Su Yue did it purposely, although she has a mature attitude, and normally the one that advices Su Feng not to be rash, but she is still young, and didn't like Li Concubine much anyway, so she thought she wanted to anger her a little using words for the empress. Thinking that she is from the empress's side, even before beating dogs you have to look at the owner, most people would not dare to do anything.
But.. she was wrong.. Li Concubine is not most people....
So after receiving the gifts Li Concubine said "Thank you you majesty" then turned towards Su Yue, "I didn't know that the maid servants from Kun Ning Palace knows only this much about palace rules, didn't even kneel after meeting me"
The moment Su Yue heard this, she knows something bad will happen, and immediately kneeled "My apologies niang niang" Kun Ning palace's maid servants was all thought by Madam Tan who was from the Empress Dowager's palace. Of Course they all are well aware of palace rules. "It is because I was in a hurry to present the items to niang niang, I ask for forgiveness"
