Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 93
The days passed in a blur since Li Min succeeded in obliterating the pirates.
His mansion was brimming with guests since early morning.
Various bigwigs and the clan members around attended the banquet held for the celebration of his success.
“You guys should attend too, alright.”
Li Min also invited Yui Mei and Li Yong.
They would participate as envoys of the crown prince, but public appearance had also its own troublesome points.
That included Yui Mei’s clothes, as she needed to dress up according to the occasion.
At first, Yui Mei didn’t feel the need to change her dress, because the clothes that the crown prince gave her were much, much better than the court lady uniform.
“Nah, we’re representing the Crown Prince here, so you can’t go around looking so drab.”
Li Yong pointed that out.
Well, well, if this was ‘drab’ then how did he see the uniforms of court ladies?
Was he trying to imply that they were rags?
‘Well, it’s fine, I guess, since I don’t have to worry no matter how dirty the uniform becomes.’
The court lady uniforms were made of easily laundered fabric, too, and that was its advantage.
Still, she needed to find a suitable dress, at any rate.
Yui Mei was thinking about what to do, when a certain package suddenly crossed her mind.
‘Oh yeah, there’s a set of clothes among the stuff that the Crown Prince bought for me on our way to Kai!’
The clothes hadn’t been sent to the capital, so she still had them with her. She hastily dashed towards her room to take it out.
The clothes’ design was quite peculiar, and it looked like a mixture of Chinese and Western clothing. The bottoms resembled the baggy, wide flared pants from her previous life.
She hurriedly tried it on, and the fabric felt great against her skin, and there was a lesser chance that she would be lost in the crowd because of the unique design.
Besides, Yui Mei felt that it had been a long while since she last wore pants, so it was easier to move her legs.
“Alright, I’m going to wear these!”
She went to show them to Li Yong.
“His Highness chose them, so there’s no way they’ll be bad.”
And so, it seemed that it was fine to use this.
Well, actually, it seemed that he also remembered this dress, so he wanted to tell her to use it.
He even reproached Yui Mei for being heartless and forgetting all about it, despite being gifted with it.
However, Yui Mei didn’t really have much space in her brain for objects that weren’t sweets-related.
Besides, Li Yong had been nagging her about this, but he himself was wearing the same soldier uniform as usual.
‘You’re the only one taking it easy, the nerve!’
Yui Mei wanted to complain, but Li Yong told her that there was no need for a soldier to stand out.
In that case, a court lady doesn’t need to stand out, too! — was what she wanted to say, however, right now, Yui Mei’s position was not a mere court lady, but the envoy of the crown prince, so there was nothing she could do about it.
‘Ugh!! I wanna go back to my easy-going life!’
Yui Mei still attended the banquet, despite all the chaotic thoughts she had.
There was also another person, who was probably not used to such an event, just like her.
“Yo, so you’re still in Kai, huh.”
Hu Tien called out to her.
“Oh, Hu, you’re here.”
“Yep, told him I don’t have any clothes to wear so I can’t show up, so he pushed this on me.”
Hu pinched the clothes he was currently wearing and showed it to her.
Still, even if Li Min considered Hu as his inventor friend, he was still living in the slums, so it was highly probable that people would talk negatively about his presence in such an event.
What were the circumstances behind his participation?
Yui Mei curiously asked, so Hu said ‘It’s that thing’ as he pointed to a large object covered with a cloth in the corner of the venue.
She asked him to show her the hidden thing, and what she saw was a tricycle underneath.
Hu’s purpose was to sell the tricycle, and he said that Li Min had requested so.
‘Hey, aren’t you way too fond of this tricycle, Lord Li Min?’
However, the tricycle also played a major role in Princess Pan’s recovery, so it was also possible that he summoned Hu because of that.
Aside from Hu, a lot of Li Min’s crew also attended the event.
Well, it could also be said that this celebration was their moment.
Thus, it was a garden party rather than a formal one.
The guests walked around the garden, and they also had pleasant conversations in their respective places.
However, in a certain part of the garden —
“Why do I have to be in the same place as that bunch of extremely vulgar people?”
“Really, does Li Min even know what dignity is?”
Two women had stationed themselves at the dead center of the venue and were loudly talking in loud, shrill voices.
