The Apothecary Diaries: Volume 10 (Light Novel)

Maomao finds herself once more in the western capital. She tries to focus on her work—which isn’t made any easier when she’s paired with not just the quack doctor but the smart-mouthed young physician Tianyu. Meanwhile, Jinshi might be the Imperial younger brother, but the western capital has its own hierarchies, both obvious and hidden. He and the other visitors from the court will have to navigate these halls of power even more carefully than usual, lest they run afoul of enemies they don’t even know they have. Over it all looms the threat of the insect plague, which seems insurmountable—until one man claims to know how to counter the menace. His method is intimately connected to secrets buried deep in the region’s past.

    “Yes, sir. In that case, I—”
    Jinshi interrupted her, patting the bed beside him.
    Maomao didn’t say anything.
    “It would be tiring for you to stand there the whole time we’re talking. Have a seat.”
    “Certainly. I’ll go get a chair...”
    She was about to do just that, but Jinshi grabbed her wrist. He was giving her his bring-the-country-to-its-knees smile. “Have a seat.” Just when she’d thought he was behaving himself today

    “Most people who ruin themselves beyond repair do it at work, while continually swearing they can keep going.”

    That left Jinshi quiet for a moment, but his face darkened. “Isn’t that what an apothecary is for? To make them better?”

    “Yes, sir. More or less. Shall I prepare an herbal bath for you?”

    “No...” Jinshi held out his hand.


    Maomao stared at it, trying to decide if it had some significance. His hand was large, the fingers long. The nails were neatly clipped and filed.

    The large hand stretched a little farther and placed itself on Maomao’s head.


    He mussed her hair as if he were petting a dog. She tried to slap him away, but he dodged her nimbly.

    “What the hell, sir?” she asked, patting her disheveled hair back into place. She hadn’t had a chance to bathe for several days, so it felt thick and greasy.

    “I simply made myself better. So I wouldn’t reach my limit so soon.” Jinshi held his head high, as if to say he hadn’t done anything wrong.

    “There must be better ways to do that, sir.”

    “Is that an invitation to utilize these...ways?”

    Neither of them said anything.

    Maomao backed away a half step and crossed her arms in an X.

    “Tell me about these ‘better’—”

    “Okay, I’ve reported everything I have to report! If you’ll excuse me!” And then, with an artful dodge, Maomao ducked out of the room.

    Outside, she let out a long breath. He’s been so indirect lately that I’d forgotten.

    Jinshi’s true personality was to charge ahead. His methods could be brutal. If he had been showing restraint with Maomao, it was only because of the ridiculous way he’d decided to go about this.

    Rikuson smiled again. “I feel like you and I get along quite well, Maomao. Do you think I could seek your hand in marriage?”
    “Surely you jest,” she said. She wasn’t about to take his polite banter seriously.
    “Yes, of course. Surely,” Rikuson said, and chuckled
