Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 31
Yui Mei and the rest were led by the maid to a wide room.
However, smoke was overflowing from the gaps in the window.
‘What’s that, a fire?’
Despite that, the maid didn’t have a single trace of panic.
Both Libin and Ziliang also looked dubious when she glanced at them.
The maid who was walking ahead turned around and locked her eyes on them.
“No matter what you see, do not cause a fuss.”
After whispering, she softly opened the door to avoid making a noise.
Yui Mei was dumbstruck at the scene that emerged before their eyes.
Smoke filled the room lighted with incense and it stung their eyes; meanwhile, Youren was sitting on the floor with his upper body naked.
The gaudy maid was hitting his exposed back with a block of wood.
‘What, what the heck is this!?’
It was only natural that Yui Mei’s blood rushed to her head.
“Stop that, you child abuser!”
She yelled unwittingly as she dashed forward.
Libin closed the gap between them in an attempt to stop her, but Yui Mei already rushed forward and landed a flying kick on the maid’s back.
The maid who didn’t notice Yui Mei and the rest despite the door being opened, fell down while still gripping the wooden rod.
“Would a normal person attack by herself?”
Libin was exasperated, and he saw that Ziliang and the elderly maid were taken aback, but he couldn’t do anything about it since he also didn’t manage to stop her.
“Come, this way!”
Yui Mei peered into Imperial Prince Youren’s face and tried to take him outside.
Youren stared at her like a deer in the headlight, seemingly confused at the current situation.
However, his appearance was extremely pitiful.
His face was smeared with tears and snot, and his lips were bleeding, possibly because he had been fiercely biting them as he desperately tried to endure the pain.
He must have been hurt, scared and miserable – Yui Mei carried his petite frame, dashed out of the smoke-filled room and called Ziliang.
“Got it! Ah, so pitiful, he’s bleeding.”
Ziliang promptly started to treat him; on the other hand, that gaudy maid slowly stood up.
“Who dared disturb us?”
While the maid moved her neck in a circle, Libin swiftly stood in front of Imperial Prince Youren as if to hide him.
She mistook him as the person who kicked her, so she glared at him with loathing.
“You again…! What are you planning by disturbing the curse removal!?”
Yui Mei felt her temples throb at the maid’s scathing remarks.
‘Curse removal, nonsense, you’re wrong, you’re venting out your frustration!’
Yui Mei stepped forward, stood beside Libin, and shouted.
“His Imperial Prince Youren is not cursed, it’s just his constitution!”
However, it was the first time the maid noticed Yui Mei.
“… Who do you think you are?”
She scrunched her brows at the unfamiliar court lady.
It was only natural, since the first time they met, Yui Mei was hiding so she didn’t notice her existence then.
“Impudent, a lowly court-lady like you should butt out.”
The maid roared, but Yui Mei glared at her without backing down.
“Who’s the impudent one! As the person who should be taking care of His Highness the Imperial Prince, you didn’t even notice his condition, didn’t even try to determine the cause yet carelessly jumping to conclusions, shame on you!”
Yui Mei roared back, and the maid grimaced for an instant after being scolded.
When Yui Mei saw her reaction, her conviction was strengthened, so she looked daggers at the maid.
But her opponent wouldn’t stay still.
“I am only following the will of Her Majesty the Empress Dowager! Telling me that it was nonsense and disturbing us, I will not forgive you!”
People would normally back down when they heard the name of the empress dowager.
She also said it now with a triumphant look.
“What is the matter here?”
A male’s low voice suddenly resounded.
Yui Mei immediately stood beside Libin and respectfully did the servant’s bow.
Ziliang and the elderly maid also did the same.
The maid stared dumbstruck at the person who arrived in the midst of the tension while being accompanied by Imperial Concubine Hu.
“Your Majesty the Emperor…”
However, the maid soon regained her senses and hurriedly bowed.
The emperor sauntered in then looked around at everyone present.
“I heard from Ming Xian regarding ‘Youren’s important matter’, but what on earth is this commotion?”
The maid lifted her head and responded to the emperor’s words.
“I have been religiously following the orders of Her Majesty the Empress Dowager. That low-ranking court lady impudently barged in and falsely accused me…”
She faced the emperor and insisted that she was in the right.
“Wenjun, raising your voice in the presence of His majesty is disgraceful.”
Consort Hu intervened.
Apparently, this gaudy maid was called Wenjun.
Consort Hu then stepped forward and faced the emperor, and then she asked him in a voice that everyone could hear.
“I am afraid I have to inquire about this, Your Majesty. Is it true that these people have been sent by Your Majesty?”
T/L Thoughts: There goes Yui Mei’s signature kick! Father Emperor is also present, things are really getting exciting 🙂
