I asked in a relaxed state.
“Why didn’t you know?”
“Your Highness has refused to allow it. You said there are ups and downs in the water supply. The proud queen, there is no one in the world who knows your body very well.”
I blinked my eyes and replied meekly.
“Well, I don’t even know my body.”
“That’s why I am. Someone needs to know your body.”
Felix, who picked it up like butter, laughed. We looked at each other and smiled.
“I don’t have to know.”
“Of course. Your Highness, just trust me…”
“But you should know.”
I straightened my smiling face.
“Are there any doctors who don’t know the state of the Empress?”
Felix panicked and stepped back.
Without asking or questioning, I let the guards outside the door come in.
“Take this guy. He’s a scammer.”
“No… Your Highness!”
The scammer doctor with only a handsome face was dragged away like that.
I looked around the treatment room, and found that even the stethoscope, which is essential for a doctor, was broken and was thrown into the desk drawer, and I laughed in disappointment.
“Lauren, who has such a person as my doctor?”
“Your Highness has been selected from among the applicants. You can trust him just by looking at his face.”
“…But I do believe it. I believe that it’s going to be ruined.”
Well, he’s barely a medical academy graduate. It’s because he’s last on the whole continent.
‘I must have been a really serious nerd. With grades like that, even a diploma was bought with money.’
I tore up the appointment letter of the chief physician of the Empress Dowager I found and left. And grumbling, I headed to my room.
‘If you leave such a thing as your primary care physician, you will be addicted and one day he will go at once without knowing what it is…’
I stood tall on the spot.
The maids behind me immediately looked frightened, and Lauren asked cautiously.
“Your Highness, are you in any uncomfortable place?”
For image management, I had to respond kindly.
With the flashing thought, I swallowed dry saliva without saying a word.
‘The Empress’s doctor… What if it was bought?’
So it makes sense if Leah in the original was poisoned without even using her hands.
‘Wow, I took ten years.’
Removed Hazard 1 hiding under the lamp. It’s random though.
‘It’s strange when you think about it. Does it make sense that someone with bad grades was approved as the Empress’s doctor?’
I started my next plan, thinking I’d have to dig out if anyone had been watching me.
“Loren, where is Your Majesty?”
Lauren looked at me with a look of hope.
“Quickly. I have something to check with Your Majesty.”
When I rushed, Lauren was confused, but she guided me.
While she was on her way from the Empress’s Palace to the Main Castle, she had a look of astonishment to all the people she met. She tried to hide it, but it was all over.
The Empress, who is usually confined to the harem, and only screams and weeps during the annexation, is looking for the Emperor, so it’s not enough.
Normally, I would have rolled my eyes, but I greeted them with a bright smile.
Although they were trembling as if they had heard of a double lust.
It’s okay, we’ll all get to know each other like this.
“I see Your Majesty the Empress!”
The same thing happened in front of the Emperor’s office when I arrived. The escort knights set their manners with wide-eyed eyes.
“Hello. Your Majesty, are you inside?”
I smiled and greeted them. The guards opened their mouths.
He seemed to doubt whether he was dreaming of the Empress’s courteous attitude, whose major was playing in a harem and minor was overturning the table.
“Can you open the door for me? I’ve come to ask him something urgently.”
“So, I’m sorry. His Majesty the Emperor will not allow any interviews without prior appointment.”
However, it kept him from forgetting his duty. Not knowing when the Empress will use her temper, even while looking at her.
“I have to ask you now. Why i can’t?”
“I-I’m sorry, Your Majesty.”
“Hm, that’s not possible.”
I smiled slightly as if I was sorry. Then, as if they thought I had given up, the guards looked relieved.
“His Majesty, if you leave a message, I will report to Your Majesty…”
“Then I will ask him directly.”
I jumped over the careless guards and grabbed the doorknob. They shouted in astonishment.
“Woah, Your Majesty, Empress! no! If you enter suddenly, Your Majesty’s wrath…!”
Everyone around was shocked. Even in the room, in front of the Emperor, the servant was nervous and reported something.
“What’s going on?”
A voice like ice was heard. But I smiled and walked away.
“Hello, Your Majesty.”
The surroundings were so quiet that you could even hear the needle falling.
The Emperor looked at me with expressionless golden eyes.
“Did you not hear it? Non-consensual visits are prohibited.”
“Sorry. But now I have something I need to ask you.”
It felt so oppressive that my skin was tingling. But to my surprise, I wasn’t scared at all.
A few hours ago, I was the person who comforted you and put you to sleep in the same bed. To my eyes, the sensitive black leopard appeared to be babbling.
“I wonder how important the question is.”
Said the emperor. With a terrifying face as if he would not let it go if it wasn’t important.
The people around him were shocked and trembling. That great Empress is finally working today! It was a gaze.
I ignored them and asked only the Emperor in a lively way.
“Your Majesty, did you have breakfast?”
The Emperor’s brow narrowed. At the same time, people knelt down.
“Please kill me, Your Majesty!”
“It’s our fault that we did not properly take care of Her Majesty the Empress!”
Minimum torture, maximum death penalty. Those with hat words written on their faces trembled.
But I calmly suggested it again.
“If not yet, would you like to have breakfast with me?”
A suffocating silence passed.
After a while, the Emperor finally spoke.
And the Emperor picked up the papers again with an expressionless face.
“Follow my orders!”
The two bodyguards put their arms around my arms with an expression of ‘I’m alive!’
“Oh, wait a minute.”
And I was kicked out politely but quickly.
Lauren, who followed, looked at me with contemplation.
“Your Majesty, are you okay?”
“Yes. Come behind me for a second, Lauren.”
I got up bravely and rolled up my sleeves. The restless maids’ eyes widened.
After knocking lightly, I made a funnel shape with my hands and spoke to the door.
“Your Majesty, don’t do that. Have breakfast with me.”
‘Why are she’s there?!’
‘Are you finally going crazy?’
The astonished gaze flew in from all directions.
“Your Majesty, you have to eat all three meals to get a good night’s sleep!”
But I didn’t give up and started flirting like my ex at 2am.
If the Empress’s doctor was a scammer, the Emperor’s health could never be guaranteed. Besides, no one knows the ending of the Emperor’s suicide except for me, so there must be an incident that caused it.
Whether it’s a physical problem or a mental problem. I was trying to block it in advance.
‘To do that, we must eat together.’
Because there is nothing more foolish than to say that it’s poisoning or suicide. As you may know, the important business must be done by myself. It’s also good for breaking down boundaries.
“Your Majesty, can you hear me?”
However, the iron walls of the Emperor were cement-grade.
It’s not easy either. Like a grumpy black panther.
‘But I’m not an easy person either.’
I began to stand in front of the door like a sticky chewing gum.
“Can I get you something simple?
About 7 hours passed like that. When the maids and knights who had stopped me finally almost gave up, the door finally opened without notice.
“Ah, Your Majesty. Are you coming now?”
I greeted the Emperor with a broad smile.
“Huh, Your Majesty the Empress?”
A servant with a shocked expression as if he didn’t know I was still there. And the delicately narrowed golden eyes of the Emperor.
“Would you like to have dinner with me?”
When I asked in a lively way, the Emperor stared at me with a cruel expression on his face.
I smiled and looked at each other. Like a trainer in a snowball fight with a wild beast.
Little by little, his golden eyes began to tremble very slightly.
And finally, a cold voice that seemed to give up was heard.
“…Go to the dining room.”
Finally! It’s not consent, but it’s almost at the level of hostility.
“Yes, Your Majesty!”
I smiled brightly and nodded my head.
* * *
“Your Majesty. What kind of food do you usually like?”
“The salad is served with tangerines. I like tomatoes better. Oh, eating lettuce is good for sleep.”
A long table facing each other. I spoke in front of the Emperor, who was eating quietly.
Of course, the Emperor didn’t say a word and only me who’s talking non stop. Still, I did not give up and moved my mouth harder than a fork.
So finally, when the main dish was finished and the dessert came out.
“Your Majesty, do you usually eat all three meals well? From what I saw earlier, it seems that breakfast and lunch are simply eaten in the room…”
The Emperor laid down the tableware and spoke coldly.
“What do you want?”
The emotionless face looked at me as if searching for it. So I put down the tableware and glanced at the Emperor’s dish, which had not been emptied.
‘Food, you’re not eating properly.’
This is not good for your health. You can’t even sleep well.
I answered simply and honestly.
“Your Majesty has to eat well.”
The Emperor asked with a suspicious look that didn’t believe anything I said.
“Well… Since you slept well, would you like to eat well if possible?”
When I answered naturally, the Emperor twisted the tip of his lips.
“For that reason, did you climb up to the Emperor who might twist your head?”
Just hearing the chilly tone gave me goosebumps. In fact, all the servants who were far away had pale complexions.
But my voice was still calm.
“You’re not going to twist my neck.”
“What do you mean?”
“Because you didn’t do it last night.”
As I spoke again and again, the Emperor’s lips hardened.
