Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 205
Xu turned around and was about to kneel when —
“Xu, you shouldn’t do that.”
Ming stopped her.
He was still ashen, but his judgement was still working perfectly fine, it seemed.
Many people pass through this place, so it would be a huge problem if she were to perfom a kowtow.
After all, the only person who could receive a kowtow within the Imperial Palace was no other than the greatest person within the kingdom.
However, the only one here was a eunuch.
Xu, whose tears just barely stopped, burst out crying once again after being stopped.
“We will definitely be happy…!”
Xu yelled those words, then she bowed deeply, before setting out once again.
Both of them turned back several times until their figures could no longer be seen in the distance.
“Ahh, she bawled her eyes out, so her face will definitely get all puffed out by tomorrow. Well, I guess that’s okay, she did seem really happy after all.”
Yui Mei felt a sense of accomplishment as she uttered those words.
“Yeah, it’s refreshing after all that happened.”
Li Yong commented, and Yui Mei wholeheartedly agreed with him.
“All the things bothering me cleared up after helping somebody else, and I also had the opportunity to listen to Miss Xu’s lute, so I completely agree!”
“Well, the results did grant your wish, huh.”
Li Yong wryly smiled in response to Yui Mei’s words.
When Yui Mei consulted Li Yong about Xu, the concerns he pointed out ended up being resolved smoothly in the end.
One wouldn’t know what outcome it would be unless he tried first, and there’s no point in just talking about things in theory. Looking back, everything that happened after Yui Mei found Xu at the garbage dump actually occurred in a very short period of time. However, she felt as if she had been involved with the latter for a very long time.
‘I did something good!’
Yui Mei was extremely satisfied with the outcome.
“Yui Mei, do you want to search for your happiness in a world that is far wider than this place?”
Du said that to Yui Mei out of the blue.
Yui Mei blanked out with the abrupt topic, so she turned to Du. He was looking at her with all seriousness.
‘Searching for my happiness, huh…’
Yui Mei pondered about what Du’s words could possibly mean.
In other words, Du was asking whether he should free Yui Mei just like Xu.
She burst out giggling when she realized what he meant.
“My goodness, what are you saying, Lord Du! I travelled from the borderlands, such a far away place, just to come here, you know? I already know how wide the world is deep in my bones! Besides, happiness might be something that’s so near it’s already just within reach, don’t you think so?”
Yui said that, then she looked straight into Du’s eyes.
“That’s why I’m going to grasp my happiness with my own hands. And I’ll definitely do my all to become happy.”
She proudly declared, making Du’s eyes go round, and a smile appeared on his face.
“…I see, I see, so that’s how it is, huh! That’s happiness, huh!”
Du looked exhilarated at the sudden revelation, when Yui Mei continued on.
“For now, if today’s dinner is my favorite, then today’s the best day of my life! I wonder what we will have for dinner~.”
“And yet you’re just gonna answer ‘everything’s my favorite’ when it comes to food.”
Yui Mei was busy thinking about her dinner when Li Yong retorted.
“Hmpf! Even among my favorites, there’s something that is my most favorite of all my favorites, enough to die for!!”
Yui Mei retorted back.
“Don’t you have a favorite thing like a normal person?”
“You don’t get it, Lord Li Yong, all the scrumptious dishes we enjoy are simply magnificent!”
Yui Mei tried to teach Li Yong this great truth, but was only met with exasperation from the latter.
Actually, he’s quite amazing for having the guts to engage in such meaningless chatter with Yui Mei in front of Du.
Du tilted his head in confusion upon listening to their exchange.
“I wonder who she got this gluttonous personality from…Hm?”
He turned his gaze towards the sky.
Yui Mei’s gaze was also attracted upwards as something white gently floated down.
“Whoa, it’s snow!!”
“Hoh, it’s no wonder it’s so chilly.”
Du murmured as he watched Yui Mei stretched her hands in wonder as she tried to grasp the snowflakes.
It will be the Lunar New Year in a while.
And soon, it’ll be one year since Yui Mei came here.
T/N: Hello everyone, this marks the last chapter that I translated. Xu’s matter had been wrapped up nicely, and the next chapters will be a new arc for Yui Mei’s adventures, so I decided to stop here. Thank you so much again for all the love! Stay safe, everyone <3
