Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 117
Actually, aside from the same hair color they shared, Yui Mei and her mother didn’t look exactly alike in terms of facial features and posture.
Of course they were similar in that both of them were homely, and there were enough resemblance for people to see they were mother and daughter.
According to the nuns, “the air is different, so they don’t look alike at first glance”, apparently.
And yet, the fact that Ming called Yui Mei’s mother the moment he saw Yui Mei meant he must have known her well, even if he just based it on the color of her hair.
‘Maybe Lord Ming watched over Mother and Father’s dates?’
Still, even if that was true, what on earth happened for him to apologize while calling her name? No matter how Yui Mei thought about it, she couldn’t guess the answer.
“Mmm, thinking about a lot of things is making me hungry…”
The brain’s main source of energy was sugar, so the sugar in her system probably wasn’t enough now.
Besides, because of a few things, Yui Mei had to walk quite a considerable distance to leave the Imperial Palace and head towards the Inner City.
At any rate, the only carriages that run in the Imperial Palace belonged to the nobility, or else were carrying goods. There was no such thing as a horse-drawn carriage for the commoners.
Thus, the lowly people didn’t have a choice but to walk inside the Imperial Palace, which was as big as an entire city.
As such, Yui Mei definitely had to get her hands on some sweets in order to become more energetic.
At any rate, she didn’t have any jobs today, so she wouldn’t receive any snacks.
However, in order to obtain something sweet, she could only return to the Imperial Palace, or else go to the Outer City.
She probably won’t be permitted if she wanted to go to the Outer City.
And so —
“General Li, aren’t you hungry? You’re hungry, right!?”
Yui Mei desperately pleaded, trying to turn him into a fellow hungry comrade.
General Li chuckled.
“Haha, you’re a glutton just like rumors say, huh. Alright, since we’re here, wanna go outside to get some grub?”
He unexpectedly approved the trip to the Outer City.
So this bear man was a great bear.
When they stepped into the Outer City, General Li didn’t head towards the high end restaurants lined up along the main street, nor did he go to the pubs along the alley they went yesterday. He strode towards the marketplace.
‘It’s a bit unexpected, but at the same time it feels like it’s just like him…’
It was strange for a general to be there, but as a bear man, the marketplace suited him like fish in the water. He was a complicated guy.
According to the bear man —
“Eating in this kind of place fits me more. Sitting in pretty restaurants is a bit… “
He scratched his head while muttering those lines.
“Even if you say that, you still have to attend to meet and dine with people, right?”
Yui Mei pointed the obvious, but General Li scowled.
“That’s torture, you know, torture. I don’t even remember what the food tastes like.”
Oh, in short, this bear man preferred the so-called junk foods.
Yui Mei observed how the people in the marketplace called out to him lightheartedly, saying ‘Lord General, we have something delicious for you!’, so General Li was probably a regular to this place.
They hunted for some sweets while conversing.
“Oh, aren’t you the girl from yesterday?”
Somebody called out to her from the side
Yui Mei turned around to check if he was referring to her.
“Hey, who are you?”
However, General Li already stood in her way, and his huge, broad back hid the person from her sight.
Perhaps the general was protecting her, but because he was both too tall and too broad, he already blocked her view.
Yui Mei felt as if she had turned into a dwarf.
At any rate, she wanted to check the person who called out to her, so she poked her head from behind General Li. The owner of the pub they went to yesterday was standing before them.
“Yeah, so it’s really you, I got a bit nervous thinking I might be mistaken. So you’re with Lord General today, huh?”
The pub owner seemed relieved when Yui Mei waved her hand at him.
It must have been really scary being intimidated by the bear man.
“General Li, this person owns the pub where Lord Ming was drinking himself to death yesterday!”
General Li backed down and stopped intimidating him when he heard Yui Mei’s explanation.
“Really, sorry then. Thanks, my subordinate was in your care.”
General Li lightly nodded, while the pub owner shook his head.
“Actually, we should be the one saying thanks. You helped us a lot by taking that customer with you. That customer didn’t stop drinking for a long time.”
The pub owner seemed bothered while showing a strained smile.
