IBLTW Chapter 8


Chapter 8

“If you want to kill me, I think you already killed me last night. You saved me back then, and I thought that you wouldn’t come all the way here to kill me.”

Am I wrong?

As he blinked his eyes, his golden eyes narrowed. He’s really handsome.

“So, I asked Your Majesty to take this opportunity to talk to me, and I asked for a meal.”


The Emperor was silent again. The sense of intimidation that stabbed my skin was still there, and he could never ignore the sentence.

“The price is quite altruistic for a meal, you risked your own life.”

It’s crazy, why can you take care of your own health?

The Emperor was very insightful. Then I smiled softly and opened up the main topic.

“I fired my doctor today for not being qualified. So, I need a new doctor, and if possible, I think it would be better to entrust it to Your Majesty’s doctor. Could you please allow me?”

If you take the Empress Dowager’s doctor, it’s risky for anyone else. If that’s the case, then you can’t be reassured as the Emperor’s doctor.

Anyway, I have to protect the Emperor’s health while avoiding my poisoning. If so, wouldn’t it be nice to have only one primary care physician, who is currently the main monitoring person?

“You are Celeste’s daughter.”


I reflexively asked the Emperor’s absurd remarks laid low.

“For myself, it means that we are similar in that we do not choose any number. I thought it was completely different from making and playing with a harem.”

So Cromwell Celeste. So you’re talking about Leah’s father? I don’t think that means good.

‘There… Where are you looking at me?’

I was trying to be a little embarrassed. I put him to sleep and took care of his meals, but maybe he’s turning me around now.

“Your Majesty, if we have the same doctor, your health management will be much easier. Last night, I saw that Your Majesty had severe insomnia, and I will help you.”

But, I couldn’t explain the big picture to prevent my poisoning and your suicide, so I worked hard to persuade him.

“I will make sure there is no problem. If the Imperial Palace physician also serves as the Empress Dowager physician, I will also tell you my special secret to a good night’s sleep…”

“I don’t allow it.”

“Hah.. Are you really?”


The Emperor stood up first. I got up happily and rolled my eyes.

“Thank you. I’ll teach your doctor the secret of a good night’s sleep…”

“I don’t need that.”

He noticed my hidden sincerity and I thought he had allowed it.

The Emperor still pushed me away with his harsh voice.

“I don’t know what kind of magic method you used last night, but if you intend to wield me with it, the safety of your neck will no longer be guaranteed.”

“I have no intention of doing that…”

I corrected my intention, but the Emperor looked down at me with a cold face.

“My doctor will find out, so you leave it alone.”

Then he strode away to get out of the restaurant.

Well, I got everything I wanted, but somehow I feel lost. This feeling of being framed for a long time.

As I glanced behind the arrogant and grumpy black panther, a light bulb flashed in my mind at that moment.

I smiled broadly and followed the Emperor.

“Your Majesty. Do you want to sleep tonight too?”

“You have a long tongue.”

The Emperor glared at me and smirked. I was a little scared on the inside, but outwardly, I spoke up.

“I really just wanted to help His Majesty get a good night’s sleep. It seems like you haven’t slept all this time. If you want to fall asleep like yesterday, you can always come to my room…”

The Emperor left the dining room before I could even finish speaking. As if it wasn’t even worth hearing about the secrets of a good night’s sleep.

‘Chi, that’s rough.’

I stuck out my tongue and wiped the sweat from the palms of my hands because of the monstrous Emperor. This was a physiological response to the formidable Emperor’s force.

‘Phew. I got scolded for pretending to be bold.’

Still, if you can’t say anything because you’re afraid of things like this, you’re not a great person! My goal is to live happily until I become a grandmother for a long, long time, so cheer up!

In any case, having solved the problem with the attending physician, I got up.

Step two with this. It was the beginning of a health preservation project.

Looks like I have a lot of work to do from tomorrow.

I plan to prepare a plan for poisoning in earnest, and meet the Emperor’s doctor. And if it’s someone you can trust, we’ll have to come up with a plan to protect the Emperor’s health together.

‘Isn’t it better to break down the Emperor’s vigilance first?’

For that, I planted the seeds last night and tonight. Now all that remains is to wait for the aftermath of the Emperor.

‘Please come quickly, Male lead. That’s the way we all get comfortable.’

I returned to the palace of Empress and ambitiously strengthened my fighting skills.

And from the next day.


“Hello, Your Majesty. Did you have breakfast?”


“Your Majesty, would you like to have lunch with us?”


“Your Majesty, it’s already dinner time. Have dinner with me.”

I followed the Emperor and begged him to eat together. Three meals a day, if you don’t open the door, I’ll talk through the keyhole.

“Get out.”

“Get her out.”

“Take her out and put some bread in her mouth.”

But the Emperor hit the iron wall every time and drove me away. I didn’t even know this was the easiest way for us to get to know each other.

‘If we live pretending not to know each other, we’ll only see each other after they both die! Do you want it!’

I secretly grumbled at the Emperor, who didn’t understand this deep meaning, but I didn’t stop.

Even though I tried for 7 days, he never received it.

Meanwhile, I got another new title…

“The Empress is said to have become a stalker for His Majesty the Fortress. I heard she follows him every time and wants to eat and beg”

“What? So now, instead of collecting a harem, she wants to take off the Emperor’s clothes as well?”

Then I become an Empress Stalker.

‘oh my god.’

I’m glad I’m the WQueen. If you go somewhere and get an award, but if you put ‘Stalker’ under my name, It will be quite embarrassing.

Still, I endured and endured with a big heart.

Although my image became a stalker with a grudge against The Emperor, I was an empress but suddenly became Emperor stalker…

Tick ​​tock, tick tock.

Time has passed and I’m not the only one here.

‘And it was also a tolerable time.’

It was just eight days ago, at night.

I opened the bedroom door and looked up at the man standing right in front of me. Of course, that person was the Emperor, my husband.

“Your Majesty? What are you doing at this hour?”

The gold was lined with blood. His face was rough. That was obviously proof that he hadn’t slept for eight days after the annexation day.

‘I knew there was going to be an aftermath.’

A person needs to eat and have a good night sleep to keep their minds together.

He didn’t realize it because he hadn’t slept so far, but since he slept soundly during the annexation, how can he forget the taste? Sleep is one of the three great human needs!

“Your Majesty?”

I closed the door and looked up at him anxiously.

The Emperor remained silent. But when he didn’t speak up first, he persevered and eventually surrendered.

“…Let me sleep.”

The Emperor, who chewed his own words, closed his eyes tightly.

I smiled and replied cheerfully.

“Yes, Your Majesty.”

That’s how I began to tame the rough Emperor.

* * *


“Your Majesty. It’s time for lunch.”

I poked my head into the office. Then the Emperor with the impression put off for a long time, and finally got up from his seat.


“Yes, Your Majesty!”

The servants who stopped what they were doing were frozen in response. I followed and greeted them.

“Then, have a good time at work.”

“Yes, Her Majesty, Empress!”

“I’m happy!”

Contrary to their loud voices, their eyes seemed to pop out. It’s been the 4th days already, but I guess they haven’t gotten used to it yet.


“Oh, Today! Have you seen it? Did you see them?”

“Huh, Pinch me a little I think I may have dementia.”

“How could the Emperor have a meal with Her Majesty the Empress…!”

Shocked voices could be heard through the cracks in the closed door. I suppressed my laughter and quickly followed the Emperor.


“How was your day today?”


“I was a little busy today. I read books and went out to the garden. There are a lot of flowers I like, so it was fun to look around.”

While I was talking hard, the Emperor ate the meal as if practicing silent speech.

Hmm… I reached out my hand to the Emperor who didn’t even look at my face.

“Your Majesty. Can you give me some pepper?”


The Emperor’s eyebrows furrowed. But I still held out my hand and looked at the Emperor with a grin.

Tick ​​tock, tick tock.

A few seconds later, the Emperor finally handed the pepper shaker with a terrifying look on his face.

“Thank you, Your Majesty. Thanks to you, I can eat more delicious fish dishes.”

I succeeded in adding one more word, and I sprinkled pepper with a happy face.

Of course, the Emperor was still silent and did not make eye contact, but lunch ended peacefully.

“Then see you at night, Your Majesty!”

I waved my hand in front of the pudding served as dessert.

The Emperor, of course, went to work without seeing me, but I proudly ate the pudding.

Lauren, who was waiting from a distance, approached and quietly spoke to her.

“I, Your Majesty the Empress. What did you do?”

“Yes? What?”

When I answered naturally, the veteran maid, Lauren, poured me a cup of tea and began to question me.

“Your Majesty the Emperor. His Majesty, who used to only see each other once a month during the annexation, how can you now eat together once a day?”


I drank black tea and fell into thoughts.

‘Threat? Or should I call it training?’

The Emperor, who knew the taste of honey sleep, was no longer able to sleep without me. In return for putting him to sleep, he promised to eat together once a day.

‘At first, it was really treated like a folding screen.’

I kept talking to him for a few days like that, and now I think I’ve been promoted to a useful empress. Look at what he gave to me when I asked for the pepper shaker!

‘You don’t know how proud I am.’

Even though he still has a bloody face and doesn’t answer a single word.

Still, there is no business ahead of time. After eating together for a few months like this, would you like to discuss choosing a meal menu?

“Is it because he liked the night he spent last night?”

I answered without thinking. I was shaking my head to see how I could get closer to the Emperor.


“I work so hard every night for Your Majesty. Fortunately, I think he was quite satisfied.”
