Ch. 21 - The Packing

@fresthy She has previously even used Jinshi's name to get things moving her way. I'd say does realise Jinshi's influence in the harem well enough, but of course that doesn't mean anything if the emperor himself wants to get rid of her. However, she does still know she's valued because of her skills and knowledge, not because of her body and looks (although that might not be entirely true as far as Jinshi is concerned), so it is a bit strange to willfully limit her own possibilities to show those skills.

No, she doesn't know she wouldn't drop to that level. I'd say she would, and she knows it. That's why she obeys the command.

I'm not really an expert with the story, but here's my takes.

1. Mao mao doesn't know what's the true position of Jinshi and she also oblivious of his feeling towards mao mao.
Mao Mao still think that she will be executed if she make any mistakes, and she still didn't believe Jinshi will help her/ have any capability to help her.
Her line of reasoning could me something along "Jinshi position might be high, but surely someone is higher than him? If this someone higher than him suspect mao mao of something, could/will Jinshi really do anything?" (refer to ch 15, page 15).
The fact that Jinshi know what mao mao are capable of (in term of medicine/poison) is actually make it even worse (from her standpoint of view).

2. This might a bit far fetched, because it doesn't explained very well in novel (up to vol 2 at least), but Mao Mao tends to avoid unnecessary confrontation (except when it's about someone being harmed), especially with her father.
There is one chapter that talked about how her father forbade her from touching corpses, because he afraid mao mao will take it to another level of creepiness.
She know that she won't drop to that level, but she still abide with her father's warning.

@fresthy Indeed, but Maomao is more or less the opposite of a subdued person incapable of expressing their opinion when they know the other party is wrong. What does it matter what the father knows or doesn't know when it's Maomao going there, and she knows it very well?

ayyy its new chapter

Suspected of scheming something? The dude in charge of the practical matters in the harem knows exactly how crazy Maomao is about her medicines and in fact has used her knowledge before. Why would he suspect anything anymore?

that ending was very foreboding.

The next time she comes back would certainly be when her papa passes away.

This was an incredibly wholesome chapter.

Mao Mao is too precious, and her neechans' beauty is paramount. for a girl of her age and in that time, she's quite lucky I'd say.
(at least for now ;__;)

The novel is pretty good but the translations for the first 3 volumes are kinda shakey

For some reason I get the feeling that Jinshi is a masochist and having Mao Mao around him is just like throwing fuel on the fire

that last passage sounds a lot like a deathflag
Avatar
@Golder she also has referred to him as foster father before iirc so there's that one
Avatar
That's right! she's basically an employee now. She can come back and visit her loving family anytime she wants~ Within reason I think.

@thanghe
Not really. There are chance that he become an eunuch after maomao was born. In the eariler chapter we did she young maomao live with her mom and not her father.

Her dad is a eunuch right? Does that mean she's adopted?
