Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 76
“Isn’t it a matter of course?”
Yui Mei asked, and the man replied with “Yep, that’s right.”
“Those guys aim to harass the ships that use this harbor.”
“Hoh, harassment, is it.”
Li Yong raised a brow when he heard that.
During their conversation, the injured people were carried in, and Yui Mei was almost buried under them.
The ship was huge, so it stands to reason that the number of passengers would also be many.
Due to the sheer number of injured people, It would take too much time and effort to examine each one of them thoroughly, and there was a risk of overlooking the seriously wounded.
Thus, Yui Mei decided to divide the severely injured from those with light wounds.
This was a method most commonly carried out in the emergency outpatient department in her previous life.
Those with grave situations were gathered in a tavern that had been converted to a temporary clinic. Yui Mei treated them there.
Li Yong also helped, since he also had some experience during training soldiers.
Yui Mei was absorbed in treating the patient before her, when she heard a voice.
“So this is where the injured are all gathered.”
She looked up and saw Li Min talking to a woman who seemed to be the hostess of the tavern. Both of them were talking at the entrance.
“Sorry for using your place, Madam.”
“There’s no need to worry, we should help each other since we are all in the same boat after all.”
Li Min slightly bowed his head, and the hostess laughed as she responded.
“So, the fishermen guys told me a woman and a guy took the injured guys over here, and they’re treating them skillfully, is it true?”
The mistress nodded her head when she heard Li Min’s question.
“The lass and lad are over there.”
The mistress then darted a glance at Yui Mei and Li Yong.
Li Min lightly sighed when he saw them.
“I thought so. Even though they’re city slickers, they’re really commendable, huh.”
“Oh, are they the guests that are staying at your place, Lord Li Min?”
The hostess was surprised when she heard Li Min’s grumbling.
On the other hand, Yui Mei and Li Yong glanced at each other.
“Li Yong, we do not seem to be city dwellers, huh.”
“It’s not we, it’s you, right.”
Yui Mei whispered, and Li Yong retorted back.
Well, that’s only natural, since Yui Mei was a ruralite from the borderlands, after all.
Li Min strode towards them while they’re busy whispering.
“Let me say my thanks first, I’m grateful for your help.”
Then he continued on.
“We’re lucky we didn’t have casualties this time around, and I heard that because of the early treatment, many of the lightly wounded guys managed to weather it out.”
Li Min bowed his head after saying that.
It was totally different from his earlier arrogance, so Yui Mei was shocked.
’Seems like I can’t make a fixed impression when it comes to this guy.’
Yui Mei tilted her head in confusion, while Li Yong replied with a stern gaze.
“Do those pirate-like guys frequently appear here?”
Yui Mei didn’t hear anything like that from the crown prince during their previous briefing.
The emperor wouldn’t let the crown prince come into such a dangerous place, and he would probably call Princess Pan back from Kei if he knew about it in the first place.
Li Min’s face hardened when he heard Li Yong’s query.
“… It can’t be helped then, you’re already sticking your noses in, so there’s no use keeping mum about this, huh. I’m telling you everything, so let’s switch places.”
“Ah, in that case, please wait for a while.”
Li Min prompted them to change their venue, but leaving her work halfway through this didn’t sit well with Yui Mei. And so, she made Li Min wait while she finished examining all the people in the tavern and instructing the other people about what should be done next. They finally moved after she was done.
“You’re such a grand lady, making Lord Li Min wait like that.”
The local folks commented, but it wasn’t as if Li Min’s story would change just because she didn’t chose to listen first
Besides, neglecting those injured people would aggravate their wounds, so she was just setting her priorities straight.
‘Plus, Lord Li Min didn’t seem to mind.’
Li Min knew how to grasp the situation, and he was also probably appreciated as a leader. Contrary to that, people who prioritized themselves without regards to the situation were not welcomed in such situations.
But that must be set aside for now.
Li Min took them back to the restaurant where they had their conversation before the pirate uproar.
“Gonna use the inner room, bring some alcohol, too!”
Li Min instructed the staff, and he strode towards the inner room.
