Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 80
“Still, isn’t Princess Pan already doing her utmost now? How do you plan to raise the bar with that, Yui Mei.”
Li Yong said, as if pouring a bucket of water to Yui Mei’s enthusiasm.
Indeed, the princess was currently engaged in diet therapy and therapeutic exercises, and for a person exhausted and weakened by illness, these things were already taxing.
However, it was only natural that once the body had recovered to a certain extent, they had to take the rehabilitation program to the next level.
“Li Yong is in charge of guiding Princess Pan during her exercises. Now, I want something that will increase her load.”
Li Yong’s expression was grim when he heard her words.
“… Don’t tell me you want the princess to undergo the training for soldiers?”
“As if, why on earth would I want the princess to hold a sword.”
Li Yong glared at Yui Mei, so she shot down his words. Female knights frequently appeared in Chinese movies and other stuff, but Yui Mei had no intention of turning the princess into something like that, although the idea itself was tempting to her.
But, that must be set aside for now.
So, people in this world equate exercise with soldier training.
They did not have anything like the exercises in her previous world.
“Besides, what would happen if you increase the burden that the princess have to bear?”
There was a reason why Li Yong persistently questioned this thing.
Nobility such as the princess were not allowed to live a laborious life.
They had to maintain their elegant bearing at all times, most especially if there were other people around them.
That was why Li Yong was very particular about the presence or absence of people whenever he coached Princess pan.
Naturally, Yui Mei was also considering the possible methods so that Li Yong and Princess Pan’s status wouldn’t be jeopardized.
Li Yong fully grasped the daily to day behavior of a person with the status of a princess, so he probably guided her based on that viewpoint.
Yui Mie thought that a baby barely learning to walk moved a lot more than the princess.
Even so, it was effective enough, and that made her realize just how abysmally minimal the movement was that the princess’s normal routine required.
‘But, if we consider Princess Pan’s situation, then this isn’t enough.’
However, aside from that situation, they also had to consider her concern that ‘ there are people watching her’ if Yui Mei wanted to increase the Princess’ level of exercise.
Moreover, she was prohibited from participating in long term outdoor activities, because white skin was prized as beautiful in this place.
Beauty Wang’s previous conduct was an extreme exception to the rule, because the situation called for it.
And so, Yui Mei considered all of these things and she came up with this solution.
“I propose that Princess Pan do indoor exercises… a way for her to move her body inside the room.”
Li Yong looked doubtful, as if saying ‘What nonsense is this girl spouting again?’.
‘Well, that’s only natural, I guess.’
Exercise should be done outdoors — that was considered as common sense in this kingdom. Rather, there were no places such as gymnasiums and indoor facilities in this country.
A huge space was necessary in order to move freely indoors.
Because they treated soldier training as equivalent for exercise, there were dedicated spaces for a crowd of people to swing their swords around.
It would cost an enormous amount of money if they were to build a spacious building for the sake of that, and so, it was understandable that people would think that they didn’t have to do that, since they could just do the exercise outdoors.
Yui Mei had been swamped with work, so she did not have the time to exercise outdoors, so she was also worried about her flabby body. Well, nurses were required to be on their feet and to move around most of the time, but work was different from exercise.
Not all muscles were used during work, after all.
And so, because of that, she ended up buying health related equipment.
She bought various stuff, and her family would sarcastically comment with ‘You might earn a lot if you rent these out for 100 yen per 10 minutes’.
‘Ah, I think I put them in the closet and forgot all about it……’
Anyway, she should aside her affairs in her previous life.
“There is a way for her to move her body all she wants in a narrow space without the fear of being spied on by others.”
“Oh, what’s that?”
Li Min had been silent while Yui Mei and Li Yong talked, but now his interest was piqued.
“Do you know any craftsman who can create something according to the figure that I’m going to tell him?”
Li Min considered Yui Mei’s words for a moment.
“Do you mean to say you wanted to make something from scratch and not a ready-made thing?”
“Yes, that’s it.”
Li Min thought as Yui Mei nodded her head.
“I know a lot of skilled guys, but if that’s the case, then only that guy would do, huh.”
Li Min knew a skilled craftsman, it seemed.
