The Empress Regnant’s Enchanting Consort (34)
【Will the host accepts the side quest? We are a kind main system; we are democratic main systems. The host has ten seconds to decide: yes, no.】
Two enormous, flashing buttons appeared.
But Bai Weiwei could only watch.
These were the system’s buttons; she couldn’t choose.
“Father Tong1, hurry up and refuse, ah.”
Bai Weiwei’s response was also, “…”
The reject button was broken, hehe.
【Countdown: one, zero. Host accepts by default.】
The system and host were silent.
Bai Weiwei looked lifeless. “Can’t you just fix the reject button?”
The system smiled bitterly. “I tried to fix it right away, but I made a small mistake. If the wires are connected, then the button can be used. But my hand slipped, and the wires snapped. They’re completely useless.”
Bai Weiwei: “Can we spend life points to fix it or exchange for another one?”
This side quest was genuinely life-threatening.
The system was silent for a long while. “It’s a little pricey, ah.”
Bai Weiwei thought about her stash of a hundred life points and suddenly felt extremely confident. “If it’s a necessity, then you should boldly spend it, ba. How much?”
The system sighed. “One million life points, ba.”
Bai Weiwei: “…”
The system and host looked at the meager and insignificant hundred life points.
Suddenly, they felt that poverty had limited their imagination.
“Your Majesty, are you tired?”
The lifeless Bai Weiwei finally reacted after hearing his voice.
She hurriedly said: “Not tired, not tired. I will go to the imperial kitchen to see if the chicken soup is ready.”
Feng Yunian smiled and said: “It’s fine to have a servant go. You don’t need to keep watch personally.”
Bai Weiwei jumped to her feet. “How could I do that? The things you eat, I naturally need to keep watch over. I’ll leave first.”
Saying this, she hurried out.
Above her head was the side quest: 【Within thirty minutes, let Feng Ling gongzhu enter the palace. Failure will result in falling face-first from a height of ten thousand meters.】
Bai Weiwei glanced up at the still-lingering2 side quest, cursing the system in her heart.
She used all manners of languages3 to send her respects to the main system’s relatives.
The view of Bai Weiwei’s hastily departing figure made the brush in Feng Yunian’s hand’s pause.
What matters did Her Majesty have that needed her attention?
Feng Yunian was extremely sensitive. He thought for a moment, then suddenly broke out in laughter.
“I should really change this paranoid nature of mine.”
He could doubt anyone else, but how could he doubt her?
Outside the palace, the imperial guards drew their swords. “Isn’t Feng Ling gongzhu a remnant of the previous dynasty? Kill her on the spot, ba.”
Feng Ling gongzhu was the heir of the former dynasty.
Moreover, this gongzhu’s talents and beauty were so flawless that nobody could possibly mistake her.
If it weren’t for Bai Weiwei’s revolt.
She would have been fully deserving to be empress.
The woman in the carriage had a hibiscus flower drawn between her brows. Her lips were red even without rouge, and her eyes were as cold as ice.
“It seems that Bai Weiwei has already forgotten her former vows. Humph, it’s as the commoners say–the number of people who fail to be loyal to their love is too great to kill them all.”
The sound of the guards drawing their swords from outside made her expression grow colder.
She was just about to let the curtain fall and rush out when she heard a familiar voice.
“All of you, withdraw for Zhen.”
Feng Ling froze. From outside, a hand reached in and pulled open the curtains.
From behind the curtain appeared an incomparably gorgeous face.
Her eyes were calm and clear as she gazed at Feng Ling. She frowned. “Come with zhen into the palace.”
Feng Ling returned to her senses and sneered, “You say to enter the palace, so I must enter the palace? I have not agreed…”
Bai Weiwei didn’t have the time to listen to her. The timer above her head was like a countdown to her death4.
She turned around and kicked off the driver. Wielding the horsewhip, she immediately spurred the horse through the palace gates.
1: 统爹: Bai Weiwei calls the system father as a sign of respect LOL.↩
2: 阴魂不散: lit. The soul of a deceased has not yet dispersed; fig. The influence/spirit still lingers on.↩
3: 英法日韩: English, French, Japanese, Korean. She’s multilingually cussing out the main system’s family LOL.↩
4: 催命符: apparently it’s a Taoist voodoo/talisman that’s supposed to hasten a person’s death.↩
Cheese: when you finally decide to stop being suspicious about your wife-to-be, but then she cheats on you with your sister…
