Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 91
The entire Kai was brimming with liveliness after Li Min succeeded in subjugating the pirates.
A banquet was held in the mansion for the celebration of his victory.
It was an extremely hectic day for the people in the mansion, especially since the influential people and bigshot ship owners were invited to this lavish feast.
They also threw a banquet for the crown prince’s arrival, but it was a bit more relaxed since he was the only person they had to entertain.
Thus, the servants fixed the venue for the banquet, then left all the rest to Li Min and the princess back then.
However, this time around, they had to entertain a whole lot more, so the servants couldn’t just retreat and slack off at this crucial time.
Everyone had to be present at the venue to welcome the guests.
Some of them got excited over this, while others were baffled, but the people who really stood out in their jobs were the ones that Yui Mei picked.
The servants who had good reputations were stationed in key positions, while those who were the opposite were given the menial jobs, so the preparations were somehow completed without a hitch. Of course, those who were assigned to do the worthless jobs complained unceasingly.
“Shut your mouths, I don’t need a bunch of useless people here.”
Li Min shut them up with a single glare.
The people who had been endlessly grumbling thought that it was fine even if they acted out of line, since Li Min hadn’t seemed to care for the princess.
However, ever since he returned, Li Min’s attitude towards Princess Pan did a 180, so they felt as if the rug had been pulled under their feet.
Li Min felt relieved that the princess accepted his true nature.
The mansion became a more comfortable place to live in now that he didn’t have to pretend any longer, and he could act the way he was when he’s aboard the ship.
They also needed an heir, so it wouldn’t be good if both of them remained strangers to each other.
Yui Mei felt reassured now that Li Min and Princess Pan truly became a family/
And speaking of family, what happened with the princess’ ‘education’?
The day after Li Min returned, the princess told Yui Mei could take the day off.
Li Yong just returned from the sea, so Yui Mei thought it would be in bad taste if she dragged him outside just to play, so she decided to take a stroll in the mansion’s garden, instead.
Li Min happened to pass by and he called out to her from the corridor, so she walked towards him.
Li Min softly mumbled, and Yui Mei instantly realized what he was referring to.
“Oh my, that’s great.”
Yui Mei beamed, so Li Min hurriedly left the scene with his face entirely dyed in crimson.
‘Ahh, he’s unexpectedly pure, too?’
However, it wouldn’t be good for her to tease him because of this.
Li Min had been staying on the ship with only males for his companion, and he just came back from subjugating the pirates.
His nerves must be tingling in exhilaration, but despite that, he never went outside to spend money in the company of women.
Perhaps it was Li Min’s way of being sincere, however, having desires was something normal and nothing to be ashamed of, and abstinence in their relationship wasn’t healthy, too.
The couple finally became husband and wife in the truest sense, so Li Min was able to relax and be at ease, too.
In fact, Li Min’s men were also relieved because of this.
They were also worried about their captain, who still continued on with his seafaring activities despite being a newly-married man.
The sailors who went in and out of the mansion observed the difference in Li Min, so he was glad that “Lord Li Min finally stopped being annoyed at everything.”
It seemed that their husband and wife relationship had affected him, as well.
However, Li Yong was the only one ignorant about this affairs.
Princess Pan called out to Yui Mei, right when she was together with Li Yong.
“Lord Li Yong, please don’t be unreasonably rough on Yui Mei, alright?”
It sounded like she was warning him.
“Huh? What do you mean?”
Li Yong looked baffled.
It was then that Yui Mei realized she hadn’t cleared the misunderstanding with the princess, yet.
Li Yong glared at Yui Mei, and they wordlessly went to a different place.
“So? What was she talking about?”
He asked Yui Mei with a scary face when they were finally alone.
And so, she didn’t have a choice but to spill the beans about the contents of the princess’ ‘education’ honestly.
Li Yong looked like the world just crashed on him as he turned frozen solid and rooted on the spot.
“Ahm, earth to Li Yong~?”
Yui Mei slowly waved her hand in front of his eyes, and he finally moved.
“Hey, Yui Mei………………………………..There’s a lot of things I wanted to say, but first, why, tell me, why the heck do you know this stuff?”
Being pure was one of the prerequisites of being a court lady, so it was totally expected that Li Yong would ask her that.
“It’s just knowledge, of course. I’m just one of those girls who knows a lot of things about the deed.”
Yui Mei just nonchalantly waved her hand, as if to dismiss his question, but Li Yong was persistent.
“Not only that, why did she say that I’m being unreasonably rough!? What and how the heck did you teach her??”
“That’s a secret between us girls~”
Yui Mei laughed lightly as she tried to gloss over it.
Li Min might have some unique fetishes and peculiarities, so she taught the princess some of the deeper stuff just in case. But she probably had to take that secret to her grave.
T/N: LOL!! Yui Mei had successfully led the princess to the dark side ~ lol just kidding. And I can imagine Li Yong’s expression — absolutely priceless. XD
