Will a cold-blooded woman who takes advantage of everything attain happiness? Ning Yurou who entered the palace out of no choice does not yearn to become the Emperor’s woman and the most favored in the whole imperial harem. Her only wish is to climb up to the Official Fifth Rank position as a court lady, be in charge of the four bureaus, then request to be released from the palace, purchase properties and die of old age, just like her predecessor.
Unfortunately, in the imperial harem fight where she has no free will over her actions, she participated in the uprising to fight for the new emperor position and became the new Emperor’s thorn in the flesh along with her backing, the Empress Dowager falling out of power.
She thought that demise would be presented in front of her, but she did not expect that although she was stripped of her Official Fifth Rank position, she was conferred to be a lowest rank concubine and her life was preserved.
She did not understand why the new Emperor did not sentence herself to death, but since she was still alive and remained in this palace, no matter how big the challenges are, how much hardship there is, she would seek out a path out.
