A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 69
“You can ask them to come in, but we can go out and eat something delicious.”
“But you know? The wife’s legs have no power. So you have to hold me tight. If you can make a promise.”
“Yes, I know. I can’t walk. If I keep walking, I will lose strength and it will be a big deal.”
“That’s good. If you promise me, let’s fly a lantern together. Write down your wishes and fly it back in the sky.”
“I have seen it!”
When she lived in the mountains, sometimes hundreds of lights would flash and flow somewhere. Looks like it’s called a lantern.
When Young-young nodded her head, saying ‘that’s nice’, Sa Heon-young laughed. Well, it’s not the time to fly the lanterns, but who’s going to say that when the inspector general said he would fly them?
Young-young told the maids about the lantern and a bow while she was dressing up, and she smiled broadly.
The maids are amused. They smiled bitter inside as they responded appropriately. What is the use of a lantern or a bow? How much is the value of those things compared to what was hanging on Young-young’s body?
It was when the maids were smiling because Young-young, who had a cute appearance, spoke of lanterns, and had bright eyes, looked like a child with a luxurious appearance.
“Oh, I, I will do it.”
Young-young rushed after getting dressed up. She put on Sa Heon-yeong’s official cap, which was his official uniform. She also fastened the sword sash and she accepted the carnelian earrings from the attendant.
The ruby earring placed in the middle of the earlobe is the symbol of the inspectorate, symbolizing that they had received the blood of the emperor. In ancient times, when appointing an Inspector General, the Emperor directly bled and dripped a drop of blood into each ear.
It was a ritual for them to not listen to anyone except the Emperor. The ceremony was simplified later, and all inspectors wore ruby earrings with their ears pierced in the middle of the earlobe.
And on his left ear, he wears a rather slanted earring to indicate that he is the Inspector General. Young-young, who fitted the cold object that felt more like a weapon rather than an earring, in the right way, smiled.
“Thank you. I have a feeling that things will go well today.”
Hearing Sa Heon-young’s words, Young-young smiled.
After she finished dressing up, Sa Heon-young hugged her familiarly.
As he rode the carriage with her to the imperial palace, the two talked about what to do tomorrow. They will eat dumplings and rice lanterns, fly lanterns, and while smiling happily, saying let’s go on a boat, the carriage entered the Imperial Palace.
Rumble, rumble. It shook subtly.
