At this time, there was a girl in a red wedding dress sitting in the Mirror Moon Hall. Her long hair was pinned in a lotus bun and there was a dual sided luan golden hairpin inserted in her hair.
With a bit of lipstick and delicate makeup.
“Miss Yue really is beautiful, it’s unknown how many times better than the one in the cold palace!” A maid praised her with a smile while helping her put on her wedding dress.
“Pa.” There was a crisp slap that fell across the face of the maid.
Yue Cai Zhi’s eyes were open wide and she looked fierce as she looked at her with a dark look, “Don’t compare this one to someone who’s already on the path to the Yellow Springs, this one will soon become the lord of the harem. The only who can stand by the emperor’s side forever!”
The maid instantly kneeled down and muttered in a trembling voice, “This servant was wrong, miss…..Empress, please forgive me!”
The other maids all looked at each pale faces.
Miss Yue had been polite and humble when she first entered the palace, she was always good to her servants.
Now that her position had changed, her dark and terrifying nature was revealed.
“Da, da, da.” There were slightly rushed footsteps that slowly sounded.
Wen De who was the most trusted person by Lin Nan Yi came in. Yue Cai Zhi slightly knitted her brows as she thought: The empress conferring ceremony is about to start, what is Wen De doing here?”
“Greetings miss Yue.” Wen De had a trace of colour in his eyes. It was like he came back to his senses as he said with a smile, “This should change! Wen De greets…..the empress.”
“Does minister need something, the empress conferring ceremony hasn’t started yet!” Yue Cai Zhi revealed a faint smile. Although she didn’t say it, there was a proud look on her face.
The maid who was slapped earlier was still kneeling while covering her face, naturally her heart was filled with disdain towards Yue Cai Zhi who wasn’t the empress yet.
She wanted other people to call her empress, but in front of the great minister, she was acting like this.
“Yes…..” Wen De gave a slight bow, “The royal family has a tradition. Before being conferred, the empress must enter the ancestor’s shrine to worship the ancient emperor. The emperor wanted this old servant to come pick you up.”
“Alright, this…..I’ll follow the minister.” She almost said ‘this one’, but with Wen De’s position in the palace, she quickly changed this.
“Quickly get up and bring my coat over.” Yue Cai Zhi slightly leaned over and helped up the maid on the ground before saying in a low voice, “Next time your mistake won’t be forgiven.”
“Yes…...This servant knows her mistake……”
The maid on the ground was trembling. Faced with this uncertain master who could change faces so easily, she as the servant would have to worry that she would be in danger at any time.
But so what? Who could resist the one in the emperor’s heart.
Yue Cai Zhi put on her cloak and said with a smile, “Minister, please!”
It was freezing outside and she couldn’t let her noble body catch a cold.
After leaving out the back door of the Mirror Moon Palace, they headed to the ancestral hall in the southernmost part of the royal palace. The lights on the way were very lively, it should be for her conferring ceremony.
Her lips curled as she couldn’t help feeling a bit emotional when she saw this scene.
Finally, it was finally the time when she received everything she wanted.
She was only a person who silently stood behind Lin Nan Yi before, watching him from a distance.
Now she was the one standing firmly by his side.
Only her, only her, only her.
There was only her, Yue Cai Zhi who was qualified to stand by Lin Nan Yi’s side, no one else!
