"An empress is employed! While the Imperial noble consort is the true love, ah!"
What's so bad being a subordinate?
As long as you do your work properly, you'll be paid and still have time to play.
Responsibilities? we have our boss for that! if things go wrong they'll hold the sky for you. Don't want to? Ayaya, point your fingers to them and people will hold them responsible for you.
If there's something, just say you don't know while redirecting the problem to them. When bad things come, you hold their thighs.
Be a good underling and boss will shield you from the rain! Such simple logic!
"Luckily the emperor is a good and powerful boss!"
Wei Yi Yi happily plans how to make him take all responsibility to her ploys.
