Chapter 794 Why Am I Just a Secondary Consort
“No… no… Please… forgive me… I won’t dare to do it again. I won’t…” A shrill scream suddenly came. Shao Wanru looked at Shao Yanru, who was sweating. Shao Yanru seemed to be frightened by something, or she was having a nightmare.
Shao Wanru came to this remote and cold palace with Shao Yanru and she would leave soon. It was also the idea of the Empress. Shao Yanru’s status was different from before, so Shao Wanru didn’t have to stay here all day long. It would be terrible if she offended the Emperor!
Han Dan hurriedly stepped forward to help Shao Yanru breathe smoothly and said in a low voice, “Secondary Consort, wake up, wake up!”
Shao Yanru, who was sweating profusely, suddenly woke up and stared fixedly at something in the air. She was in a daze, looking gloomy and weird.
“Secondary Consort, what’s wrong with you? I’m so scared!” Han Dan hastily shook her lightly as she spoke.
Shao Yanru seemed to be a little sober. She rolled her eyes slowly and let out a deep sigh of relief when she saw Han Dan. It seemed that Han Dan should have been with her. Then she said in a slightly hoarse voice, “Give… give me a glass of water…”
“I’ll serve it right away!” Han Dan let Shao Yanru lean against her nimbly. Then Han Dan turned to the table, poured half a cup of warm water, and brought it to her lips.
Shao Yanru drank it up in a hurry. Because she drank it so quickly, some of the water spilled on her. After finishing it, she said, “Get another one!”
Han Dan poured another cup of water, and Shao Yanru took it and drank it up this time.
After drinking two cups of warm water, she felt as if she had come back to life. She looked up at the surroundings and asked slowly, “Where… am I? Why… is it not where I live…”
“Secondary Consort, this is where you live. Her Grace ordered you to live here. She said that this would be the place where you and I live. Though it looks bad somewhere, I’ll clean it up later. Then it will look much better!” Han Dan said with a gloomy face.
She didn’t expect to follow Shao Yanru to such a remote palace.
Was there such a palace in the imperial palace? She didn’t know it before. Not only was it remote, but it also looked old. Some parts of it were a little dilapidated. She didn’t believe that this place was really for the imperial concubines to live in.
“Isn’t this place really the legendary Cold Palace?”
She just wanted to follow a potential mistress so that she could have a bright future. Unexpectedly, the current situation was not as good as before. However, she had no choice, so she had to endure it.
“Secondary Consort… Her Grace… This is where I live…” Shao Yanru murmured to herself and reached out to press her head, only to feel that the situation was different.
She thought that she shouldn’t be just a Secondary Consort. Getting such a low-ranking title made her shocked!
Shao Yanru had been dreaming just now. She couldn’t remember all the complicated things in her dream clearly, but she still vaguely remembered some. She was the Emperor’s Zhaoyi. How could she be a Secondary Consort? How could she get such a low-ranking title? Moreover, she lived in such a remote and dilapidated place. After all, she was the eldest legitimate daughter of Duke Xing’s Mansion.
When she touched the bed and was about to sit up, she suddenly met a pair of deep eyes. The cold and sharp eyes made her weak for a moment, and her body fell heavily again.
After being stunned for a moment, she hurriedly turned her head and saw Shao Wanru sitting in front of the table. For a moment, she covered her chest with her hands, widened her eyes in disbelief, and said in horror, “You… Why are you still alive… You… are still alive!”
Seeing that Shao Yanru finally saw her, Shao Wanru raised the corners of her mouth slightly and asked with a sneer, “Big Sister, what do you mean? Why can’t I live?”
“Are… are you a human or a ghost…” Shao Yanru shrank back desperately with panic and fear in her eyes as if she had really seen a ghost.
“Big Sister, do you want to touch me? You can check if I’m… a human or a ghost!” Shao Wanru said with a smile. Then she stood up and walked slowly to Shao Yanru. Her bright watery eyes were mysterious as if something in her eyes was dragging Shao Yanru into them.
“Don’t come over. Don’t come over!” Shao Yanru screamed in horror. “It has nothing to do with me. I didn’t kill you… Don’t come to me. It’s Prince Yue’s order… It’s not me… It’s not me…”
Shao Wanru stood still and looked at Shao Yanru carefully with a trace of suspicion flashing across her eyes. It was not like something that Shao Yanru would say.
“Qin Wanru, you have nothing to do with me… and have nothing to do with Duke Xing’s Mansion… Don’t come over… People of the first branch all died… You… you…” The look in Shao Yanru’s eyes was elusive, and she lost control of her expression as she screamed in a sharp voice.
“Qin Wanru? Prince Yue killed me?” Shao Wanru’s eyes became colder and colder. She was killed in her last life. So Shao Yanru now realized that she and Chu Liuyue conspired to kill her in the last life.

Shao Wanru sneered, lowered her head slowly, and whispered in Shao Yanru’s ear in a low and grim voice, “First Miss Shao… did you hear that if someone who was cut in half at the waist was wrongly accused, she would haunt you for the rest of your life!”
