Still, she manages to maintain her curious and pragmatic spirit, planning to work until her years of servitude are over. One day, however, she realizes that two of the emperor’s sons have become seriously ill, so she decides to act in secret, using her experience as a pharmacist raised in a poor neighborhood.
