The Emperor staying a night was good thing, but the words that came out of her mouth was clearly carrying a bit disgust.
Since Zhu Feng had just ascended the throne, there was no time to select individual talents to fill the Harem. Sitting in this room, in addition to her, were the people of the Yan Wangfu. They were either concubines along with bedroom palace maid Xin Qing already became a concubine.
Yet, her, was merely a Zhaoyi.
This rank, seemed as if she had the print “climbed the bed” written all over her face.
Xia Yunting’s face was reddened with shame, simply nodding her head and not being daring enough to open her mouth.
Beside her was Lady Gao Yurong, she had a sarcastic smile and then muttered.
“Consort Kang is very kind hearted. Zhaoyi Xia learning more about the night’s rules is not a bad thing. After all—— If you do not know the rules, once is enough.”
Xia Yunting lowered her head, even her ears were red.
Xu Miaoyin glanced at them faintly, this time she broke the silence.
“No, before the canonization this matter has never been mentioned.“
Wu Wan and Lady Gao Yu Rong turned to look at her.
Xu Miaoyin watch helplessly at them and faintly said.
“Since His Majesty has ascended the throne, the selection of women to fill the Harem is a big event. In the future, there will be more Sisters in this Palace, you better learned to live in harmony and let this Palace enjoy a moment of a peace of mind.”
Immediately, everyone answered.
Her bright eyes look at the crowd again, her eyes swept over Wu Wan before they fell on Ruolan’s body. Again, she pondered for a while until she finally said.
Consort Ning, who was sitting quietly, immediately got up when she suddenly heard the Empress calling her.
“It is currently the first time to select talented individuals to fill the Harem. This Empress will personally organized this matters and you will assist me. However, the primary election will be handled by you.”
Ruolan hesitated a moment but soon after she spoke.
“This Concubine is thin and weak, I am afraid to let down the Empress’ expectation.”
“Now, we are not at the Yang Wangfu in Peiping and you are not Madam Ruolan. Since you have become a concubine of the Emperor, you should share the burden of His Majesty.”
“… Yes. ”
Wu Wan could only glare at her.
Although Ruolan saw her expression, she merely silently sat back on her seat and lowered her head.
After this matter ended, they talked again casually. Soon after, each ladies went back to their own palace.
Departing from the Yonghe Palace, Wu Wan’s face had been not very good-looking. Especially after looking at Consort Ning Ruolan who acted as if nobody walked in front of her. This time, the selection of the draft was arranged by Her Highness yet she asked this freak, without even asking her. Thereupon, she understood what the Empress meant.
She was displeased, however, when she felt out of favor several times at Yan Wangfu. She knew, when she wanted to vent on her, that this woman was like the cotton. There would be no response even if she slapped her, only making her feel depressed.
As she was feeling stuffy because she was unable to find a place where to vent her anger, she quickly saw Xia Yunting.
Then she coldly said.
Xia Yunting was usually afraid of her. Because His Majesty stayed at her place last night, she was very happy. But she also knew that right now Wu Wan had no good words to say. Suddenly, she was so frightened that her face turned pale as she stood there motionlessly, afraid to move.
Wu Wan slowly walked up to her, looking up and down at her, and deliberately said.
“You—— Did you heard what the Empress said? Wait until the draft to fill the Harem, and there will be more people here.”
“You should rush to serve His Majesty a few more times.“
“Otherwise, looking at you like this, if you have no ability. I am afraid the Emperor, in the future, will only take a glance before never looking at you again. ”
After that, Wu Wan walked away coldly.
Gao Yurong behind her also hit her shoulder intentionally. Xia Yunting stumbled and fell to the ground. Fulan hurriedly came to help her and saw Xia Yunting’s palms pressing on the tip of a stone on the side, making her skin bleed.
