Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 92
[Author’s note]: There’s a little depiction of gore.
The Grand Duke Huang, who was the Lord of Xuzhou, was troubled.
He received a set of “packages” from Kai, the port city he had entrusted to his grandson.
A few freshly severed heads lay before Grand Duke Huang.
Some of the servants fainted in terror upon seeing such a sight.
A letter was also pasted on the forehead of one of the men with a familiar face.
Divine punishment on the clan who gave grief to the beloved child
The details of how the freshly severed heads reached their plight were also written in the letter.
Thus, they understood that these assassins failed in their mission to attack the mansion of the Huang family in Kai.
“Goodness me, this must have been the work of some big-shot.”
Grand Duke Huang’s close aide muttered. The grand duke bitterly scowled when he heard those words.
“As if, it’s that stupid daughter’s younger brother-in-law.”
Indeed, the one with the letter pasted on his forehead was none other one than the younger brother of his daughter’s husband. The Duke had many daughters, but this daughter was aiming for the seat of the leader of the Huang family. Her target in particular was the grandson entrusted with governing Kai — she viewed Li Min as her enemy.
This woman was very fond of luxury and extravagance, so she had wanted all the fortune that Kai had.
If he did what she wanted, he could already see the outcome — all the ships would avoid Kai, and the port city would surely fall into ruin.
Both this daughter and her husband didn’t have a single ounce of talent for governance, yet they were still aiming for that position. How laughable.
They were not a clan who would allow such a fool to trample all over them.
‘She probably thought I was a coward for taking the initiative to reconcile with the emperor.’
The history of the Huang family was entwined with wars.
They had expanded their territories through wars, until they finally reached prosperity.
However, they couldn’t continue engaging in bloodshed.
The populace were the ones who enlist in the army, so if all they did was war, then there would come a time when no one would be left to provide and produce the food rations and supplies.
Their victories would be meaningless if the people would die in starvation.
However, many members of the Huang family didn’t understand that reality, and there were still some who clamoured for warfare.
Thus, there were many who were apathetic, or else held grudges against Grand Duke Huang, because he abruptly stopped the territory expansion and also established harmony with the emperor.
He restrained the clan with force, and because it was the time to pour all their energy to establish peace and tranquility in Xuzhou, he was eyeing his relatively calm but highly intelligent son, as well as his grandson.
“Hmpf, seems like that lad Li Min is ready to make his move, huh.”
Grand Duke Huang muttered, with a faraway look in his eyes.
That grandson was smart and beloved by his people, but he had a trait that needed attention.
Thank goodness that he was finally willing to get up and do his job. It seemed that getting him a wife was the right decision.
Previously, news had come that the bride had fallen ill, but she had recovered, so it was a relief.
It was actually surprising that they had come this far when somebody else interfered.
“It’s unbelievable that Zhi Wei was going to butt in. Did he dote on that princess this much?”
“We haven’t heard about anything like that. The crown prince’s subordinates are staying for a long time, too, so it’s only natural if we follow that line of thought.”
The grand duke agreed to that.
At any rate, they had to suppress the upcoming strife regarding the succession of his position.
That idiotic daughter paid a huge sum of money to buy the pirates on their side, but Li Min already crushed all of them.
“Still, that guy Zhi Wei ain’t a coward, huh.”
There was a glint in Grand Duke Huang’s eyes as he intently stared towards the direction of Sai’s capital.
“Those ignorant clan members probably thought that they’re going to win because that guy is weak. They didn’t realize how terrible that was. What a bunch of fools.“
“Well, ignorance is bliss.”
Grand Duke Huang snorted, and his close aid smiled wryly.
Mistaking a weakened beast for a rabbit and petting it was just courting for death.
Only those who actually fought against it knew the reality of this.
T/N: Not much gore….. Well author did say little XD
