“You…come this way,” the senior eunuch said suddenly.
“You mean…me?” I asked in slight confusion as I pointed to myself. Did he mean me?
“Yes, you. Come here with me,” the eunuch replied in a desperate voice as he beckoned me to follow him with his hand.
Hesitantly, I started to follow him. I didn’t know where he was leading me, but he was leading me away from the group of women. I looked back over my shoulder as the group of women walked further away in the other direction. Where is he taking me?
“The Emperor has graciously decided to let you stay in the White Lotus palace. You should consider yourself extremely lucky to have earned yourself such a reward on your first day at the Grand Palace,” the eunuch explained as if to answer my unasked question.
Not that I knew what the White Lotus palace is. As far as I was aware, the fact that Ren seemed to show some interest in me by simply talking to me during the session has earned me a palace. In other words, I get a slightly bigger room to myself than the rest of the other woman because I saved his life. Well…that’s great.
