Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 88
“We still have a bigger problem, right. The enemies here in the mansion pose a more dangerous threat to Princess Pan since they’re near.”
Li Yong turned his gaze towards the mansion.
Yui Mei tilted her head and pondered his words.
“Well, I understand your point. So, aside from the bunch inside the mansion, there are still others outside?”
“Yeah, they probably want to stage an accident right in front of the Crown Prince’s envoy so they can deal a conclusive blow to Lord Li Min. For example, if the envoy or Princess Pan was murdered inside the mansion, that would push the blame on Lord Li Min since he’s the head of the household here. He’ll be sacked for sure.”
Li Yong painted such a nasty scene.
The murdered crown prince’s envoy mentioned in his story was Yui Mei, in this case.
It would be the perfect opportunity for their enemies If Li Yong, a soldier, left since only the two of them would remain inside the mansion.
Yui Mei groaned and scowled.
So this guy wanted to use her as bait to lure their enemies out in the open.
“Wait a minute, what about me, isn’t this plan too terrible?”
Li Yong placed his hands on Yui Mei’s shoulders when she sullenly commented.
“Hey, Yui Mei, you know, I really want to leave this place AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.”
He stressed each word as he stared right at her.
Well, in fairness to him, Yui Mei also thought that this trip had been dragged on for far too long.
It should have been over after she fixed the princess’ meals and exercise program, but because the servants were like that, she and Li Yong would probably be worried about whether the same problem would recur when they were gone.
If they leave and the princess’ health deteriorates again — or worse, if she died — it would become an unspeakable disaster for all of them.
However, even if that was the case, Li Yong also had his own duties and obligations to fulfill, so his thoughts must have been in turmoil, too.
At any rate, he was also playing a dual role — he never admitted to this, though — just so he could stick to the crown prince’s side.
It was not an exaggeration to say that he was the crown prince’s lifeline.
Yui Mei fully understood where Li Yong was coming from.
“Still, what will happen to my safety in that case?”
Yui Mei was bothered about this the most, but Li Yong assured her.
“I already thought about that, of course. Did you think only the two of us are left in this place?”
‘As I thought.’
They were definitely accompanied by shadow guards who didn’t show their faces out in the open.
“Well, I guess you’re right, Lord Li Yong is the Crown Prince’s most precious close aide, after all.”
Yui Mei nodded her head. Li Yong looked like he wanted to say something, but he kept mum in the end.
So, let us return to the present time.
Yui Mei recalled their conversation, so she replied to the princess.
“No, he’s the kind of person I don’t have to worry about, after all.”
The crown prince entrusted himself to that guy.
He was probably a high-level fighter, if not the ultimate.
If not, he wouldn’t volunteer to participate in the pirate extermination for sure.
‘Still, if he’s wounded severely during their expedition, then I’m going to nurse him, at the very least.’
And maybe snicker at his ultra-rare, pitiful sight while at it — though on her own, of course.
Those were Yui Mei’s thoughts.
“Oh my, for you to trust him so much… your bonds are very strong. I see, I should trust Lord Li Min with all my heart, too.”
Princess Pan then sighed.
It seemed that she misunderstood.
Yui Mei could only smile vaguely since she couldn’t correct her in this situation.
