MGCH Chapter 57

The Emperor on Top, Imperial Concubine Underneath (11)

The head eunuch bowed his head, “Yes.”

Sheng Siyu stood up and picked up the sword, “Let her start at a higher rank, bestow to her Feng Zhaoyi. We will go to the morning court.”

The head eunuch looked around, although the things that were destroyed by the sword last night have been replaced with new ones,  it was possible to see how much Sheng Siyu’s heart was chaotic.

Sheng Siyu only wielded a sword when he was in a state of confusion.

– – – – – – – – – –

After watching the video.

Bai Weiwei: “…”

System: “…”

Staying silent for a while, Bai Weiwei dragged the quilt and wrapped herself in it, looking like a glutinous rice wrap. (TN: or burrito)

So horrible, she was going to become a sinister enchantress.

She was merely a joke, but the result was like a duck being driven onto a perch1, ah!

The system comforted, “Don’t be sad, it’s just like having your name go down in history as infamous person. Nothing more than having your 5 limbs pulled apart by horses and then putting your corpse on display, then being spat at by people for several millennia.”

Bai Weiwei finally couldn’t help but look up and swallow her tears of sadness, “F**k, still thought that this strategy was a good one, but instead, the previous one was better. You garbage system, you should give me a different target, I will not be used by Sheng Siyu, I won’t be slaughtered like livestock!”

Sheng Siyu meant to borrow her hands to wipe out the four great clans. Then when all of the four great clans were finished, kill her off to appease the commoners’ anger.

Surprisingly, the system was somewhat sympathetic, “Actually, if you accomplish the mission, he will not kill you… Probably.”

Bai Weiwei hugged her pillow and scolded the system ruthlessly, “You broken system, useless stupid garbage that can’t do anything right. Other people’s systems can let them fly and can give cheat spaceships that release atomic bombs. They are considered and warm, deities with cheat devices. But you, totally not! Even when picking the missions’ target, how can I possibly count on you?”

The system did not dare to utter a word.

Bai Weiwei began to twist up the sheets.

The system was shocked, “What are you doing?”

Bai Weiwei: “I’m going to hang myself, so as to not to be a disaster for this country.”

System: “…”

After venting, Bai Weiwei finally remembered her business.

“Wait, why on earth did Sheng Siyu give me drugged tea? Was it to deliberately made me think that we went to bed?”

Bai Weiwei looked solemn and serious, “It seems like none of the women in the harem are pregnant, maybe they… it is possible that they are the same as me?”

The system was also puzzled, “Yes, all of the women are the same, even without being drugged, if one women from one of the four great clans unexpectedly became pregnant, there are also many contraceptive methods.”

Bai Weiwei pondered for a while, then slowly spat out the truth, “I think I understand, Sheng Siyu, can’t lift it up!”

The system also felt this was possible. Just as it was about to agree, Bai Weiwei pulled out a bronze mirror from the side and stared at her face.

“I am so beautiful, I can only bring calamity to the country and its people; but seeing me strip-naked on the bed he would rather go practice the sword, if it was not because he can’t lift it up then he must be gay.”

The system looked at Bai Weiwei’s infatuated expression while holding the mirror and couldn’t help but buy more than a dozen liters of eye drops to cleanse its eyes.

Bai Weiwei had just finished pitying herself, when the imperial edict of bestowment arrived. Bai Daying was promoted to Bai Zhaoyi. Jumping from a common 9th rank concubine directly to a 3rd rank concubine, the speed of this raise in the ranks was like the shooting of a firework, making everyone gasp in admiration. And then, the bestowment of all kinds of treasures and jewelry. At the same time, several servants arrived. Among these palace maids there was even a Head Maid, who has the authority over all the other palace maids.

When she arrived, she brought Sheng Siyu’s verbal edict, forbidding Bai Zhaoyi of applying those red and purple cosmetics in order to avoid harming the skin.

Faced with this, Bai Weiwei reached for her forehead somewhat feeling a headache coming on, “Really tragic that Sheng Siyu came.”

1: Pushed by somebody to do something beyond one’s abilities

Sorry there was no Thursday update, it was really hectic with lots of important tests, a dance show and a job interview + normal classes, I was too mentally exhausted to MTL, and there was practically no free time :'( I meant to mention it on Tuesdays chapter but I forgot, opps. Some of my classes are going through finals next week so I’ll be a bit more busy, thank god for Nigaria, he makes my job so much easier, please be sure to thank him! One last thing, I’ll be trying to find a summer job soon to pick up where a few (not all) of my classes end, so it might effect my updating scheduled a bit, but I’ll get into that more deeper after I secure a job. Sorry for the long rant, thanks for reading XD

  1. Sorry I was wrong before…. it seems the harem system is following the Ming Dynasty instead of Qing Dynasty that I commented on chapter 50?

    1. Oh ok, well Idk, I might just leave it how I have it for now as to not confuse the readers XD
      Oh one funny story was in world history, the teacher was talking about harems and I was like ‘I know it! there is one empress, 4 imperial consorts, around 16 consorts, then concubines, and palace maids who come with their masters to ‘warm the bed’.’
      He was like, how do you know this?
      me: I read…. a lot.
      (Ps got my info from a picture I saw awhile ago, we were talking about the Qing dynasty at the time and after class I corrected myself with info from google, Qing has 9 ranks) I love that teacher he’s awesome and knows so much random stuff about history!

  2. See that? It’s me crying blood tears… why do I always get mistaken for a guy when online? 😭 Am I not feminine enough? Do I need to seduce you? Show a bit of skin here, a bit of meat there….

    This chapter was rather fun to translate, all the abuse and scolding between system and BWW as well as she being so narcisistic and shameless give me life ^.^

    I will also be rather busy in the next few weeks bc i’m nearing the deadline for my final year’s thesis, but still i should be able to work on a couple of chapters a week at least

    Good luck everyone with your finals, projects, group assignments and whatnot!

    1. *pat*
      Sorry, I thought you are a guy too at some point.
      I’ll try to remember that you are a gal. No promises though.

      1. Speaking of which, Vannie, are you a guy or a girl, I tend to assume everyone is a guy unless they got a girl based profile pic or a clearly feminine username, like one with unicorns, flowers, or sparkles emojis attached. I really need to stop that, but most the time it doesn’t effect my conversations with people… I could have this stigma because most of my friends are guys and sometimes even I forget I’m a girl…

          1. XD Real question are there any guys here? Just googled it, girls read more then guys which doesn’t really surprise me considering the popularity of romance and bl nowadays 🤷‍♀️

          2. Hahaha. Now that I think about it girls usually don’t have problem reading and watching some stuff intended for male audience, but when you saw a man watching a super cheesy romance ment for femle audience, in my case I usually tilt my head in confusion.

            BTW I knew male peps reading bl and romance, so I don’t really discriminate, I would just be stunned in the unsual sceen

      1. I’ve gotten really lucky with my classes, even my minor isn’t that hard. I’ve yet to write more then a 4 page paper and all of my classes have been quite easy! yay! the only problem is the shear amount of classes I’m taking, I’ve got a total of 8 classes this semester… Orz (but last week knocked the most important parts of 2 out and this week will complete 2 more, but then I’m getting a job to fill in my free time… Y am I a workaholic? I’ve got a bad addiction to testing my limits) 🙁

    2. Well for the most part, I’ll stay up on scheduled, and tell you if otherwise *PS no update on Tuesday, got to study for 2 classes finals on Wednesday, but Ill say that after todays chap anyway. And Nigaria, the reason you keep being mistaken as a guy is because of 2 reasons, Unless stated otherwise, most people assume the person writing is a guy (Just read askreddit, it sometimes takes me the whole story to realize OP was a girl, and most the time I just assume it is a boy.) The secound reason is that your profile pic is of a guy (or at least looks that way to me) So it places the image of the speaker being a guy. I really need to take physiology, people’s though patterns are interesting!

      1. Lmao since I am a girl I almost always assume the other party is female as well x) and my pp is a girl >.< cant you see a bit of a ribbon in her hair?
        Still, sometimes it's impressive, in discord i've been treated as a guy literally 1 minute after i was complaining of menstrual cramps… this one was surely not my fault right?

  3. So dear Emperor swings his swprd when confused?
    Maybe he should bring his Imperial Concubine with him in the battle field! Instant buff to him and debuff to his enemies~

  4. I’m loving her bronze mirror moments lmao.
    “Ah. Life sucks.”
    -takes out mirror-
    “But damn my face is so beautiful, it could cause the apocalypse.

      1. Hey. There is such a thing as cute narcissists okay? I’ve met my fair share of people who think they are beautiful l, but don’t just rub it in your face lol.
        They say it playfully, or cutely, and maybe just for fun

        1. That’s true, I have a bad habit of over generalizing, but then again I have never really meet a truly narcissistic person either so who knows 🤷‍♀️

          1. It’s all because of by goddess like looks that guys are too scared to confess their feelings to me, they think they aren’t worthy, that’s how come I’ve never been confessed to 😂😄😃😐😢😭

          2. ya, tbh I’m really not looking for a relationship right now, I want to focus on my schooling so I’m happy nothing has come up yet, I really don’t have the time. Well I guess I do, just rather spend it here with my amazing readers XD

          3. Lmao thanks. I’m honestly looking for relationships because I’ve read so many books about true love, that I have to believe in it. And I’m narrowing down my options lol 😂 and trying to find my true loves

          4. my Mr. Perfect is a list of red flags, how I see it, So long as he doens’t have these qualities everything else is a plus. Not a cheater/skeptical, achoholic or druggy…. But you know what he’s funny and loves animals just like me XD. So instead of saying, ‘he should have this, this, and this’ I would be saying, ‘so long as he doesn’t have this, this, and this, everything else is an unexpected plus.’
            Good luck on you hunt my fellow companion 😄

  5. I’m just imagining the snow white moment whenever BWW takes out the bronze mirror. Instead of the mirror talking back to answer her question, the system trash talk her which adds the gag in it XD

    Thanks for the chapter and good luck in your IRL issues. If being an adult is that hard, lemme stay as a kid.

    1. Me too! Forever 16! (my birthday is next month and I’m scared, I don’t want to get older, I don’t want to worry about bills and taxes, lemme live with my parents just a little bit longer!)

      1. Omo, ur only a year older than me. *iz shook* but same, I don’t wanna go out and meet society and new people. Lemme keep becoming a shut in as a kid.
