Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 140
However, Yui Mei didn’t come here to check Ming’s before and after transformation.
“By the way, may I know where the person rumored to have lost his memories is?”
Ming’s shoulders slumped when he saw Yui Mei looking around her.
“So your goal was that guy, huh?”
“Yes, Aunty Yang requested it.”
Ming tried to confirm it, so Yui Mei replied while nodding her head.
He then muttered,”That woman is as gossipy as ever.”
“I was wondering what you’re up to this time around, but as long as it doesn’t have to do anything with me then good.”
It seemed that Ming was on his guard just in case they would disturb him again.
Unfortunately, Yui Mei really didn’t have any business with Ming.
Yang didn’t take the opportunity to make requests concerning him, either.
Ming was really just a link that would satisfy her curiosity this time around.
Ming seemed relieved that they weren’t interested in him, so he asked the old lady.
“Well, he said that he would go out for a walk, but I think it’s time for him to return any moment now.”
The old woman replied.
“So that person is named Dong?”
Yui Mei asked, but Ming shook his head in reply.
“Nah, it’s just a temporary name. He doesn’t remember his own name, but it’s a hassle if he doesn’t have any name to call him by. He did tell me that he came from the east when I asked how he got to the capital.”
“Ohoh, so that’s how it is.”
When Ming replied with those words, Yui Mei understood, and she was once again filled with awe at the same time. He was unexpectedly a sincerely considerate person.
Even if a person didn’t have a name, people could still hold a conversation with him by calling him “Oy” or “You”.
However, he didn’t do so. He even went out of his way to prepare a temporary name to call him; didn’t this show how kind he is?
Li Yong said (as Libin) that many of the amnesiacs came from battlefields.
Then perhaps Ming was used to interacting with such people, then.
‘But, the mere fact that he didn’t just arbitrarily name the guy with just about anything also shows how remarkable he is.’
Ming giving a name related to the person’s origin also gave a favorable impression.
Back when she was in the borderland village, Yui Mei once saw a person who lost his memories due to shock after being caught in a sandstorm while crossing the desert. The village head had called him with such a crude name — “Wuming”, literally ‘No Name’.
Yui Mei reconsidered her impression of Ming, albeit just a bit.
“Hello, I’m back.”
An unfamiliar guy’s voice resounded from the entrance.
“Your goal Dong is here, it seems.”
Yui Mei could hardly suppress her curiosity inwardly, but she still put on a stoic face on the outside. She followed Ming to the entrance, and the sight of a guy washing vegetables by the well greeted them.
He seemed to be around the same age as Li Yong; he was tall, and even though he wasn’t really handsome, he didn’t look plain, either. He exuded that naivete ambiance that would make people feel he was an amiable person that’s easy to befriend.
He has a toned, well-built physique with solid muscles; he didn’t look like a merchant, and were farmers this brawny? — that was what Yui Mei thought.
“He’s a soldier, huh.”
Li Yong whispered.
“Is that so?”
Yui Mei softly asked, and Li Yong nodded in return.
“The way his muscles are toned is different from that of a farmer. Besides, his hands have calluses from holding the sword. The position of calluses is also different when holding farming tools versus a sword.”
Yui Mei was listening intently to Li Yong’s pointers, when that guy — Dong suddenly noticed them.
“Lord Ming, I have returned.”
Dong repeated his greetings.
“Did you get something out of your stroll?”
Dong’s face fell at Ming’s question.
“Well, there’s no need to hurry. It’s fine, just take it easy. You can stay here as long as you want.”
Ming lightly said to the dejected looking Dong.
“Did you buy those vegetables?”
The old woman then asked about the vegetables that he washed, but Dong shook his head in response.
“One of the street stalls’ vegetable vendor gave it to me. ‘They’re leftovers because they’re in bad shape, so take them’, he said.”
Dong replied, before commenting about Yui Mei and Li Yong.
“Are these people Lord Ming’s guests?”
“Nah, they’re no guests, just nosy rubberneckers.”
Ming corrected when Dong asked.
‘Well, he’s right, though.’
Yui Mei was indeed a rubbernecker.
