Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 163
Yui Mei said ‘hmm’, deep in thought after witnessing the situation in the other room.
“So, that person loathed Miss Xu, so she became like this out of jealousy?”
Yui Mei repeated the impressions that she heard as it is. Libin replied from behind her.
“No, if I remember it correctly, Xu doted on that palace courtesan, treating her as a sister…”
Yui Mei was shocked when she heard what Libin said.
With things currently being like this, she couldn’t believe that Xu and that palace courtesan had such a loving relationship, no matter how much she looked at it.
“His Majesty would only request the songs that person made whenever I perform before him! I’m just a substitute for her in the end. Do you know how great this humiliation is!?”
The woman shrieked while hitting the table, kicking and making a racket.
‘So Xu also wrote music, huh…’
Yui Mei was filled with awe while thinking how amazing she was. But she recalled her uneasiness.
Even if Xu couldn’t play the lute because her hands hurt, the Jiaofang shouldn’t have any reason to maltreat her if she could also write songs for her job.
However, she was obviously famished the first time Yui Mei saw her at the dumping site.
Yui Mei couldn’t help but think that Xu’s circumstances were so odd, as if things didn’t match up.
The woman next door kept on kicking up a fuss.
“That woman has it easy, saying her hands can’t move anymore and using that as a good reason for her decline! It’s just an excuse for sure! Just hurry up and retire already if you’re getting old and you’re no longer skilled! She kept hanging on, forever lording over me, I’m so fed up! I’m the number one performer now!!”
The woman kept on screeching insults towards Xu, but she was just repeating the same things over and over again, so they couldn’t get any new information.
‘In short, she just wants to say she’s number one.’
If that palace courtesan was really confident with her skills, then she should’ve just held her head high without mulling over what others say.
However, if she couldn’t do that, then it’s precisely because she had that sense of inferiority that she relied on the poppy juice tobacco to drown in euphoria.
Otherwise, she must be a perfectionist.
Even if other people recognized her skills, she would be unsatisfied with herself if she couldn’t cross the skills that she had assumed she possessed. Such people were susceptible to being taken advantage of by other people during their times of weakness.
She should have been a brilliant lute player if she didn’t encounter the poppy juice tobacco.
Yui Mei was filled with pity at the thought.
“I don’t think we’re going to get much further than this. They can no longer hold a conversation so it’s useless.”
The man snorted. Yui Mei then gave a warning to him.
“That person is becoming more violent, so the poppy juice must’ve run out and she’s starting to exhibit withdrawal symptoms, don’t you think?”
In that case, the longer this went on, it would turn into a more terrible situation as she displayed drug withdrawal symptoms.
“If you’re going to isolate her, I recommend that you place her in an environment where she won’t hurt herself even if she goes on a rampage. Please do not place objects that can hurt when broken near her.”
The man commented after listening to Yui Mei’s.
He then whistled with his fingers, and the Ministry of Justice men in the other room apparently heard it, because they simultaneously moved to restrain the palace courtesan once again.
“Let go of me!!”
“Yeah, will let you go inside the prison.”
The person from the Ministry of Justice replied when the palace courtesan resisted. She would be taken to prison, it seemed.
Didn’t Yang also mentioned that the the only way to restrain those addicts would be to put them in jail? In that case, this might be killing two birds with one stone, since they would also detain the criminals at the same time.
