A Kind Goblin's Bird - Chapter 72
The Empress said that she had no intention of bringing anything lowly and dirty to the bedroom, so Young-young had to sing outside the Empress’s bedroom.
Outside the Empress’s bedroom was a small room where the maids were waiting. It was fortunate that it was not outdoors, but the space was too large for the voice to spread.
The Empress’s bed was too far away, and it was difficult for Young-young to be sure the Empress could hear her voice.
Most of all, to make the Empress’ wishes come true.
Young-young didn’t think her songs would have such a great effect.
Today seems like a really beating day.
Her father would always beat her if her job didn’t go as her father thought. It didn’t matter if it was her fault or not.
How much will it be this time? Young-young looked around, but no one knew, so it was difficult to guess.
Court Lady Yoon gave Queen Mun a soft cushion while she was standing still.
In Sun dynasty, poor people lead a sedentary life, and rich people lead a standing life. A sedentary lifestyle has been going on since ancient times, but this is because standing up has become popular recently.
A standing life basically requires more furniture than a sedentary one. It takes a lot of money. Moreover, in the Sun dynasty, there was a custom of attaching great importance to decoration, so there was no case of using simple form for each item.
As a result, the rich naturally prefer to live standing up, even to show off their wealth, and the poor, on the other hand, lead a sedentary life.
Naturally, the imperial palace led a standing life. It was the same with Queen Mun. However, Court Lady Yoon gave Queen Mun a cushion. This was a great disgrace. Of course, it is in the name of the Empress.
Court Lady Yoon was also not comfortable. How much does King Mun cherish his wife? There were even rumors that all the luxury items that entered Yangan were presented in front of King Mun before anyone else. The love of King Mun, who wants to do everything for her because she is pretty, is talked about in Yangan every day, but Court Lady Yoon did not want to imagine what kind of scene she would experience when King Mun finds out about this.
“Bring me some hot tea.”
With Court Lady Yoon’s command, the other court lady looked at each other, asking if it would be okay. The Empress said she didn’t want anything done to Queen Mun.
“What will you do if the song is cut off and the Empress cannot fulfill her wish? Go get it!”
At Court Lady Yoon’s urging, the court lady nodded her head and then disappeared with hasty steps.
“Your Highness, please start singing.”
Young-young looked up at Court Lady Yoon’s words. Don’t worry, she opened her mouth, thinking that this person seems to have a less terrifying face here.
“Did she have a sleeping incense?”
Court Lady Yoon opened her eyes slightly wide when the sudden question was asked.
“She can’t wake up in the middle. I don’t know what was accomplished with my songs. I don’t know the effect. But one thing is for sure, they must sleep for more than a certain amount of time. To do that, it’s better to light a sleeping incense stick.”
Her father always burned sleeping incense or gave the guests medicine. If he was in a hurry, he gave them medicine, but if not, he preferred incense. She had heard her father explain to someone that they could sleep more comfortably because of incense.
“Go to the infirmary and get a sleeping incense.”
Another court lady hurriedly disappeared with a brisk walk at Court Lady Yoon’s command.
“Is there anything else you need?”
“Oh, and there were times when my father did not feed me. Because I couldn’t pay for the meal……. I don’t know what it is, but it seems that sometimes things don’t go well. But I don’t know what it is.”
Court Lady Yoon felt ominous at that time.
Queen Mun was 26 this year. Although she had aged for a long time, her face was strange. She looked as if she was not even fifteen, as if time had stopped passing. A face that hasn’t fully grown up. Her eyes are big, her lips are thick, her nose is low, and her face is small. Her words are slurred yet her gaze is clear.
She suddenly got goosebumps.
This Queen was not like a human. She’s weird.
Court Lady Yoon had never felt this kind of emotion even with the goblin King Mun. To her, King Mun was just a proud person she had raised.
