Esther 2:15, Question 4. Why does Esther not request anything?

Either Esther did not request anything because she did not want to be the queen, or perhaps this was her way of committing suicide by coming before the king in a disrespectful manner. The Maharal and the Malbim both suggest further that she wanted nothing in order to show that she did not want to be there.
