I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 101
Translated by ShainaG Translations
They shouldn’t let the outsiders overhear their conversation. Mrs. Jiang lowered her voice and asked: “What about your mother-in-law, Prince Jin isn’t coming home, doesn’t she have anything to say about this?”
“She’s the queen, and Prince Jin is her son. What do you expect the queen to say to me?” Jiang Mingwei complained, “If he really was too busy and had no time to come home, I could still bear with it. But the past few days, He went to Qiyang Manor several times, and even when they sent the imperial decree next door from the palace, he followed along. I was ready to shamelessly send someone to Qiyang Manor to invite the prince back, but the person I was planning to send hadn’t even reached there yet, he had already left the manor.”
Jiang Mingwei sneered, and said bitterly: “As the saying goes, the saint didn’t even enter his house despite walking past it three times. I think Prince Jin is about to become a saint.”
“You kid, how can you speak that way.” Mrs. Jiang lightly scolded Jiang Mingwei, and said slowly, “How can you still call it the Qiyang Manor? Now, it’s the An Manor. Do you think that Prince Jin was going to the An Manor as a guest or to play around. He’s running errands for the emperor. Now, many of his subordinates can’t head out of the palace, everyone is relying on Prince Jin to pass the message. This means that the emperor is fond of Prince Jin, it’s fine if you aren’t happy for my daughter-in-law, but how can you complain about him like that?”
Jiang Mingwei was scolded by Mrs. Jiang, and her complexion started to look better. She let out a sigh of relief and said to Mrs. Jiang: “Mother, you’re right. I was just fuming with anger. But I’m just so jealous, how could that bitch be of the same rank as me? Mother, did you know what today’s decree said? The emperor actually said that Prince An was somewhat the crown prince. Prince An is older than Prince Jin, and he’s even better than Prince Jin in all aspects! This, this……”
Jiang Mingwei was so angry that she couldn’t speak properly. Mrs. Jiang knew about this during noon today. Jiang Honghao came out of the palace in the morning and talked to Mrs. Jiang about the emperor’s orders. Sure enough, the imperial decree and rewards were given down very soon.
Mrs. Jiang came here today for this. Mrs. Jiang said: “Ming Wei, your father told me that the title of Prince An was personally given by the emperor himself, and everyone in the palace paid much attention to this. Why do you think Prince Jin had to go there in person? Do you really think he cares about Prince An? No, he wants to please the emperor, and to show it to the people. Giving that person the title as the prince also has its own reason to it. When you’re not clear about anything just yet, you just need to remember that you should always go next door and pay your greetings, just be patient.”
“Greet her?” Jiang Mingwei was surprised, “I’m the emperor and Empress Dowager’s daughter-in-law. Only others would come to greet me. Why should I greet her? Is she even worthy of it? “
“Ming Wei!” Mrs. Jiang’s tone turned strict, “You’ve become a princess now, you live a good life, is that why you don’t you even listen to your parents anymore?”
Jiang Mingwei softened, she lowered her head and said: “I didn’t mean it that way.”
“Then do as your dad says. This is not just your dad’s intent, but it is also what the palace hopes for.” Upon seeing her daughter look gloomy, Mrs. Jiang’s heart softened. She was her only daughter who she had almost lost. How would she have the heart to speak in such a stern tone with her. Mrs. Jiang couldn’t bear it any longer, she disregarded Jiang Honghao’s warning, and quietly said: “Mingwei, just bear with her for a while. No matter what she says, just go along with her. A bad person like her won’t be standing this tall for long, that person, won’t even survive through this winter.”
Jiang Mingwei’s eyes widened in shock, “Mother, the things you just said, is it true?”
Mrs. Jiang didn’t speak and nodded slowly. Jiang Mingwei was startled and frightened, but after some thought, it wasn’t that surprising after all.
No wonder the palace suddenly gave Xie Xuanchen such a big reward, Xie Xuanji often visited them and even the emperor said something on the lines of treating Xie Xuanchen like his own son. It turns out that it wasn’t Mu Mingtang’s luck that came, it was just that Xie Xuanchen wouldn’t survive past this winter.
Jiang Mingwei recalled the events that happened during her previous life. Although she seldom heard about the Ye Dynasty after she went to the North, Ye Luyan and his army had always wanted to conquer the Ye Dynasty, but they never dared to invade. Nothing really happened at the borders in the past.
