Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 178
Inspite of their conversation, Yui Mei still finished the sesame dumplings with great relish.
Libin then accompanied her to the penitentiary again.
By the way, Libin had to go with her because she couldn’t remember the way there, and he was also worried about her dealing with the matter on her own.
‘I’m not such a big deal of a troublemaker!’
Yui Mei pouted because of the unnecessary treatment.
When they reached the entrance of the building, Libin’s acquaintance was waiting for her.
“Good day, I was informed that my presence is requested, so I came.”
Yui Mei bowed to the man, but he just waved his hand and told her “this way”, before hurriedly leading them away.
Libin and Yui Mei followed behind the man, and she called out to him.
“How has Miss Xu fared since that day?”
The man then answered her without turning back.
“Nothing, really. She didn’t even kick up a fuss, and had been quite the docile one, you know? She wanted to die, so we had been extra vigilant thinking she might cause an uproar by attempting suicide, but she didn’t do that.”
Yui Mei felt relieved when she heard the man’s explanation.
It seemed that they were also worried about her raising chaos then taking her own life afterward, but it turned out to be unnecessary worry.
“Maybe your persuasion last time worked?”
Libin commented, so Yui Mei tried to wracked her brain.
It seemed it wasn’t right to say that it was thanks to Yui Mei.
“Indeed, Miss Xu agreed to converse with me, but I don’t think there are a lot of earnest people who would willingly listen immediately after being told off by somebody else.”
Yui Mei then responded.
It was natural for humans to doubt what other people say.
Usually, they would go through the process of reconciling their own ego with the advice of other people. They would then try to understand first, before they made their own opinions.
It would take a lot of willpower and resilience, and if those were lacking, it might also be possible for the person to reject what they’ve heard, or else just believe every single word they heard.
Based on this, Xu must’ve been capable enough to properly digest it for herself.
Perhaps, she was just a bit narrow-minded, but she wasn’t driven to the corner yet?
“Maybe that means Miss Xu still has the capacity to think clearly?”
“Hm, I’m not sure if I get it or not…”
Libin had a subtle expression when he heard what she said.
It must’ve been difficult for him to understand, considering he was still young despite being the wise man that he was.
He would probably understand it after meeting a lot of people from now on.
“You’re still a lass, and yet you’re spouting wise things like an old man.”
The man in front of them seemed amused, on the other hand. Well, it was certainly a statement that didn’t seem befitting of a young maiden who had just come of age.
“Xu spends her days quietly by herself. She also eats her meals without complaint. The person in charge of her meals suddenly told me that she wanted to talk to the court lady who was a housekeeper.”
“I see, so that’s how it is.”
The man told her how Xu ended up asking for her. Right at that moment, they finally arrived in front of the room that was their destination.
“We’re coming in.”
The man called out after knocking, then he opened the door.
The room was simple, furnished with a table and chair. Xu was sitting on it while staring absentmindedly at the scenery beyond the window.
She didn’t even pay attention to the guy who just entered the room.
“Hello Miss Xu, I heard you called for me, so I came.”
Yui Mei called out to her, and Xu finally turned to face them.
‘Her complexion is better compared to when I last saw her.’
Yui Mei assessed Xu’s condition.
Her complexion was extremely bad back then, but now, she looked better despite still being pale.
