Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 164
“What, who do you think I am…!!”
The courtesan continued ranting and raving, but she couldn’t resist with her body being withered as it was. She was taken outside the room.
“You’ll never be forgiven for doing this to me!”
The woman’s shrieks resounded through the hallway.
Her voice faded into silence as they got further away. The man then went outside the hall and talked to another guy in hushed tones.
With their figures in her peripheral vision, Yui Mei repeatedly took deep breaths.
She had unconsciously held her breath, so she felt suffocated by the time they noticed it.
“I see, so that’s the symptoms of poppy juice addiction, huh.
Libin was also a bit tense, and he remarked while shaking his head.
“I get why it has been so difficult for you to explain it. It’s hard to understand without seeing it for oneself.”
Libin seemed moved while saying those words.
Yui Mei agreed to what he said,
“Yes, it is still best to see that in person. It will definitely be taken lightly if it was just explained with words.”
In her previous world, the police officer had also blurted out that they were having a hard time doing awareness campaigns against drugs because words weren’t effective enough.
On the other hand, if they were to film a video, people would only suspect that “they are just exaggerating their performance”.
Indeed, conveying the message to the people was such a hard thing to do.
Yui Mei was lost in those thoughts, when Libin commented with a complicated expression.
“Still, wouldn’t it turn into a serious matter if someone like that appeared in the imperial palace? The Inner Palace won’t be able to suppress this ruckus if that happened.”
Libin’s worries were actually justified.
‘True enough, it’s actually easy to smoke tobacco accidentally.’
That stench could be a hindrance, but if it was labelled as being rare, it would definitely attract the interest of people craving for novel things.
“Aunty Yang is also worried about how to investigate the court ladies, right?”
“Yeah. Goodness, it’s giving me a headache.”
Libin massaged his temples while replying to Yui Mei. He was also searching for a way to check the crown prince palace.
“But you know, I’m worried that poppy juice will be banned as a medicine because of this. It’s an excellent painkiller, after all.”
“I see, then the soldiers must’ve used that medicine frequently.”
Yui Mei expressed her concern, and Libin frowned in response.
The man returned at that moment, probably done talking to his subordinate in the hallway. He then stared intently at Yui Mei.
“Xu Zi is awake.”
When the man said so, Yui Mei roused her somewhat exhausted body.
‘Oh, right, I came here because of Xu.’
She didn’t come here to observe that drug addict patient.
“Alright, you’re going to be the witness as planned.”
The man said, and Yui Mei raised her hand in response.
And so, they immediately went to where Xu was, with Yui Mei following after the man.
However, there was something that bothered her.
“Lord Libin, aren’t you going back?”
Libin was walking beside Yui Mei for some reason.
It seemed that he was intent on joining them.
Libin glared at Yui Mei when she pointed it out.
“You, can you go back by yourself? The guys here aren’t so kind as to escort you back to where you were previously, you know?”
Libin remarked, and realization hit Yui Mei.
She had been following that guy up to this point, so she didn’t have a clue on how to return back to the court ladies’ lodging area.
“…Please go back with me.”
Yui Mei meekly bowed her head towards Libin.
