Without waiting for Tang Yue to open the door, a pair of slender hands pushed open the chamber doors rudely from the outside.
"Great. There goes my privacy." Tang Yue mumbled but instantly stopped in her tracks, with her mouth wide open.
Standing in front of her was a woman who could only be described as otherworldly.
Beauty! Such overwhelming obnoxious pure beauty!
With her lustrous silver hair dancing on her curves, the elf gently smiled as she and her two aides barged in without an invitation.
Tang Yue absent-mindedly watched the breathtaking beauty pull out a wooden chair with a thud and sit on it graciously.
The beauty then smiled at her, with a gentle gesture. "Welcome home sister."
"Sister?" Tang Yue was confused, finally snapping back to reality.
One of the aides standing near the beautiful woman immediately explained.
"Her highness, Charlotte is the queen consort of his highness, the crown prince Xander. Technically, she is your elder sister in the harem".
Tang Yue's lips twitched as a cold look appeared in her eyes.
Right from her entry until now, there was something about this woman, that just did not sit well with her.
First, she had assumed that maybe it was the innate arrogance of the elves, who often considered themselves to be superior to the other beings.
But then, something else struck a chord with her.
Just yesterday, Tang Yue had been poisoned on her way over to the elven palace.
Someone had actually dared to poison her, even before she stepped foot in this palace.
Considering everything, it definitely had to be someone like Charlotte? Someone from the harem...?
While Tang Yue was pondering silently in her mind, Charlotte's elegant glance fell on her aides. Clearly, she was signaling them.
Shortly thereafter, the trio quickly prepared to leave the chamber.
It was as if their main job coming here was to establish this elder-junior relationship and cement their superiority,
"Here are some fruits and tonics, sister. They should help you relieve the fatigue from yesterday's journey."
Queen consort Charlotte smiled and handed Tang Yue a small basket full of strange fruits and some liquids.
Her voluptuous figure then turned around and walked away.
And just like that... the trio had disappeared just as quickly as they had appeared.
Tang Yue tossed the basket aside and flopped onto the bed with a tired look.
"Hmm... This situation definitely does not look good."
"Why do I have to deal with this overly jealous and suspicious queen consort?"
Her right eye was twitching. Trouble was definitely incoming!
She neither had an interest in the crown prince nor his harem drama.
Now that she knew she can evolve and grow ridiculously strong, she needed to find a way out of her current predicament.
Being held captive as a political hostage was just not her dream scenario.
She had suffered enough in her lifetime, demeaned, and tortured for her weakness and vulnerability.
Now that she had the power to change it, all she wanted to do was gain more and more strength and escape from this horrendous place.
Even the vast never-ending forests had to be better than her home or this trap called the elven palace!
The elves might be more powerful than the snakes and some other spirit beasts, but they were definitely not at the top of the food chain.
After all, this world was a mysterious place. There were all sorts of races and species.
As Tang Yue contemplated the future, a crisp system notification suddenly sounded in her head.
<Sneaky Snake System Quest Alert>
<New Quest Available: Increase your poison resistance by 1 Level>
<Reward: 5 Experience Points>
"Hmm? Poison resistance? Experience Points? What does that mean??" Tang Yue asked the system with her eyes full of curiosity and hunger.
Immediately, a blue screen flashed in front of her, almost scaring her off the bed again.

Tang Yue was amazed at this unique magic. She waved her hand around trying to grab the blue screen.
Surprisingly, the screen was completely formless. It was probably just an illusion, albeit a high-grade one!
Since the so-called system was most likely an ancient serpentine immortal, Tang Yue wondered if the senior had achieved supreme grandmaster stage in the illusion magic.
Otherwise, he wouldn't be able to create something this marvelous out of thin air.
After meddling for a few seconds, Tang Yue sighed and stopped playing with the blue screen.
She turned her attention towards the words written on it instead.
This bizarre screen somehow listed the ins and outs of all her strengths and weaknesses, leaving her utterly dumbfounded.
