“Still, Libin, aren’t you too quick to come here?”
A bewildered Yui Mei asked Libin.
Indeed, even if it was the crown prince’s imperial palace, wasn’t it to early for them to learn about this incident?
Libin kneaded the space between his brows while replying to her.
“That guy over there informed us.”
Yui Mei’s eyes widened as he stared at the man.
He didn’t seem to have made any arrangements — perhaps he did it while Yui Mei was putting away her cleaning tools?
The man just sat there, his appearance screaming ‘it has nothing to do with me’.
“Oh, right, you came at the perfect time. Brew some tea, will you.”
The man said that to Libin.
“There should be some hot water on the stove next door. The tea here isn’t palatable, so maybe it’ll turn better if you brew it.”
Libin frowned at the man’s abrupt words.
“…Who do you think I am.”
Libin grumbled, but he still went to the next room, probably where the stove was.
‘Libin-sama’s such a softie, huh, or should I say he’s the diligent type?’
She couldn’t help but feel that he got a personality that was easily taken advantage of, since he couldn’t refuse if somebody requested something from him.
Yui Mei followed Libin with her eyes while posing a query to the man.
“Ahm, are you acquainted with Lord Libin?”
“So he’s going by that name, now, huh”, the man muttered to himself, before replying to Yui Mei.
“Well, that’s about right. We started serving here around the same time, so we’re quite at ease with each other.”
‘So you’re contemporaries, huh.”
Yui Mei nodded in understanding.
‘Just like Aunty Yang and Lord Ming, I guess.’
Not only that, this guy seemed to know that Libin was also Li Yong.
In that case, the people who knew about Libin’s circumstances should be all around, to a certain extent?
But then, it must be natural. It was a kind of gamble that Libin wouldn’t be able to carry out just by his own efforts.
He could readily do this role precisely because there were other people involved in aiding him.
“Still, it’s the first time I met a friend of Libin.”
“Is that so? Then that guy must be a lonely fellow, unexpectedly. How pitiful.”
The man smirked faintly at Yui Mei’s words.
‘Oh, I see now, Libin-sama has no friends, huh.’
Yui Mei nodded while thinking like that.
“You guys are probably talking about something rude, huh.”
Libin came back and said that while carrying a tray with utensils for tea.
“No, it’s not like that. We’re just confirming whether it’s a fact that Lord Libin is a lonely person with few friends.”
Yui Mei didn’t even attempt to gloss over it, and just bluntly replied. Libin glared at her.
“That’s what I’m saying as rude. You don’t want to drink tea, it seems.”
“Want! My throat is parched! Even if Libin doesn’t have friends, I think that you are still an awesome person!”
Yui Mei hastily tried to correct her words, but it just made Libin’s temples twitch.
“Like I said, saying unpleasant stuff like “doesn’t have friends” is rude, so stop that.”
He then replied.
Yui Mei and Libin didn’t see eye to eye regarding the problem, apparently.
“Seems like you guys are having fun.”
The man commented, apparently dumbfounded at the scene.
At any rate, Yui Mei was able to quench her thirst with the delicious tea that Libin brewed.
“So, what are you doing here at the Ministry of Justice, Yui Mei?”
Libin then asked again.
The man elegantly sipped his tea before answering.
“It’s only natural to investigate suspicious informants, but for now, we’re confirming the information.”
‘Ah, so they really suspected me, after all.’
Well, Yui Mei wasn’t surprised. Even in her previous world’s investigation dramas, the first one to be suspected would be the one who discovered the crime scene.
