Consort Yi, who was breathtakingly beautiful and the most doted on in the imperial harem, had a nightmare about the future.
The crown prince was deposed. The fourth prince ascended the throne. Her sworn enemy, Consort De, became the empress dowager. Her son, the fifth prince, was not allowed to have an important position. The ninth prince was died while he was imprisoned. The eleventh prince died of an illness during infancy. Although Kangxi spoiled her with sweet words of love, he took in many women in his later years and cast her aside.
Kangxi urged the new emperor that if Consort Yi was domineering and disrespectful after he passed away, then the new emperor did not need to take his feelings into consideration.
In the end, she died in desolation.
After awaking from her dream –
Consort Yi: We are not going to bother.
Whoever wants to be the favoured consort can go ahead and be the favoured consort!
The emperor didn’t say anything, but knew deep down that out of all those in the imperial harem, only Consort Yi had his heart.
She was beautiful, considerate, thoughtful, and knew how to handle various situations. Once in a while, she had a bit of a temper.
But suddenly, one day, Consort Yi went on strike. In order to refuse his favour, she did everything she possibly could.
Yun Xiu: I am jealous and malicious…
