Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 148
Libin peered at Yui Mei’s face with a scowl.
“Mm, you’re a bit stinky, you know?”
Libin covered his nose with his sleeve after saying that.
‘Is that something you say to a maiden, huh!?’
Well, Yui Mei was indeed smelly.
“It’s not like I want to be smelly! I encountered something that’s beyond me, so I wanted to draw somebody else in this. That’s why I’m here!”
Yui Mei grumbled as she explained the reason for coming here, but Libin glared at her.
“Yui Mei, keep appearances, will you.”
Libin warned her.
‘Oh no, I did it!’
Yui Mei’s mind had been a mess, so her true thoughts unwittingly spilled from her mouth.
“Let me rephrase it! I am here because I have something to consult you with!”
Libin flicked her forehead when she tried to repeat what she said in proper terms.
It was a bit painful, so Yui Mei glared back at Libin as she pressed her forehead.
“It’ll definitely turn red!!
“It cleared your mind, right.”
Yui Mei gritted her teeth as tears welled in her eyes, but Libin nonchalantly replied.
“Still, it’s rare that you’re flustered to this extent. You look like your head is in the clouds no matter when it is, after all.”
Libin said with a raised brow, so Yui Mei pouted in return.
“Stop that tone please, it seems to me that you’re saying I’m a blockhead.”
“Well, aren’t you like that while carrying that manju of yours?”
Yui Mei complained, but Libin just blocked her again smoothly.
‘Well, I guess that’s true…’
And she realized that she agreed with him.
At any rate, Yui Mei didn’t come here to consult him about herself, and she stood out too much so it was decided that she would enter the crown prince’s palace.
The stench was terrible so instead of entering from the main entrance, he took her to the back gate.
“Yeah, it’s really stinky.”
Yui Mei was taken to where the crown prince was. He was sitting beside the table and elegantly enjoying his tea, but the first words that came from him was this.
‘Ugh, I wanna quickly throw these ashes away!’
What would Yui Mei do if the horrible odor seeped into her?
Actually, she wanted to consult Libin, but she never thought about talking with the crown prince.
She wanted to pass the information to him through Libin.
However, the crown prince replied that it would be too troublesome so she better come in person and talk to him directly, so she was taken here.
Yui Mei asked permission to open the windows first inside the room where the crown prince, Libin and Xiuling were present.
The windows had been closed because the weather was increasingly becoming cooler, but the ventilation was poor because of that.
“I apologize for this dreadful stench, but I wanted to consult you regarding the source of this odor, so I brought it with me.”
Yui Mei explained before taking the wrapped ashes out from her sash.
“Please allow me to warn you beforehand. Please do not smell this within close range. It will make you sick.”
Yui Mei said, then she opened the parcel. The offensive strench of Ammonia became stronger, assaulting them.
“Yeah, it’s a smell that can really make you sick.”
Xiuling frowned. She fanned the air with a folding fan in an attempt to redirect the flow of the smell somewhere else.
“I am now closing this. It’s a scent that I don’t want to smell that much, too.”
She had shown the contents of the parcel to everybody so she was about to put it back to her sash, when Libin handed her a box.
“Put it here.”
Yui Mei did as she was told, then he took it outside the window
She felt refreshed. Although the scent still lingered, it wasn’t as bad before because it was no longer near her.
She was grateful for Libin’s consideration.
“So this is where the saying that ‘the nose bends because of the scent” came from.”
Xiuling said. She brewed the tea once again and served it to everyone as an attempt to remove the stench from their nose.
‘Sigh~ the tea’s delicious.’
Yui Mei finally felt relieved after carefully sniffing the aroma of the tea before drinking it.
