Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 79
“I really like this Kai port, being the seafarer that I am. That’s why I want the fishermen to fish comfortably, and it’d be great if different sorts of ships come into this harbor. But if that woman comes into the picture, then she’d wring this port dry from raking in money and the port will be a mess for sure, that’s the only future I see.’
Li Min seemed to dislike that from the bottom of his heart. It seemed that he would never see eye to eye with his aunt.
Actually, it was more than that. It was absolutely a power struggle.
‘Your Majesty the Emperor, you should have researched more before sending Elder Sis as a bride!’
Yui Mei sent a barrage of complaints towards the Imperial Palace inwardly, then she asked L Min.
“So, is that why your aunt, that Huang County Lord, torments Princess Pan?”
“Ha? What did you say?”
Li Min shook his head at Yui Mei’s words.
‘Hey, don’t tell me you don’t know anything about this?’
Yui Mei had a bad feeling since it seemed that it was the first time Li Min heard about this, but she still explained the reason why Princess Pan fell sick.
She had to relay the crucial information, even if she needed to keep up about stuff like the princess’s desire to lose weight.
“That hag, taking advantage of the fact that I was out at the sea! I never heard about that, either!”
Li Min banged his hand on the table in frustration.
It seemed that he really didn’t know anything about this.
“Princess Pan kept mum so that she wouldn’t become a burden to Lord Li Min. However, the fact that no information came from your retainers is not something you can turn a blind eye to, right?”
Li Yong then stated the problem that he found in the mansion.
“Blast it, those bastards mocking me.”
Li Min roared with a glare. Li Yong tried to sort it out for him.
“According to Lord Li Min, the Huang County Lord treats Princess Pan as an eyesore for coming as a bride to Kei, the place that she coveted. Meaning to say, if the Princess makes a fuss and asks for a divorce, then Lord Li Min status will be in jeopardy.”
“The princess must be in an unfavorable situation if her allies are only a handful, right?”
Li Min scratched his head wordlessly when Li Yong and Yui Mei gave their advice.
“That Lady Princess…How is she now?”
He then asked Yui Mei.
“Yes, her appetite is good, and she can eat her meals properly. Her sense of taste has improved. The problem was caused by malnutrition, after all. She is also cooperative, so she’s doing great while she tries to regain her stamina and strength.”
“Really, that’s a relief… It would have been fine even if she didn’t want to lose weight, you know.”
Li MIn was relieved when he heard Yui Mei’s answer, then he sulked.
Yui Mei was surprised.
“Eh, did you know the reason why Princess Pan wanted to lose weight?”
Li Min furrowed his brows, then he whispered in reply.
“Don’t all women think alike. But, I never complained about her body, you know? The only condition I required was that ‘do not stop me from being a seafarer’.”
Li Min gulped his wine after that.
This husband and wife couple really had an endless amount of misunderstandings.
If he had properly informed Princess Pan about that, then maybe the situation would not come to this.
Besides, Li Min was frequently absent because he was busy dealing with the pirates, and that probably exacerbated the situation.
In that case, Yui Mei’s goal became more concrete.
She did not remain here in order to become involved with the difficulties of the rules, after all.
She was here in order to help Princess Pan’s body recover.
‘Alright, I should do my best!’
“Alright, we should polish Princess Pan to shut that Huang County Lord, so she won’t be able to find any flaws with her!”
Yui Mei jumped to her feet and exclaimed, shocking both Li Yong and Li Min.
“Well, we just have to crush all the weak spots, huh.”
Li Yong soon agreed, but Li Min grimaced.
“Oy, oy, I don’t like thin, weak-looking women, the type that looks like she’s applying to enter the Imperial Palace, got it?”
“Fufun, no need to worry. I’m going to make you see the woman that I deem beautiful!”
Yui Mei puffed her chest out at Li Min’s words.
Beauty should come from within. She would use all her knowledge from her previous life, and she would show them the true meaning of beauty.
Yui Mei was a girl who would become all fired up if she had an opponent.
