I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 104
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Mu Mingtang was slightly sad. Since Xie Xuanchen already knew about this, she also mentioned the other matters: “In addition to the rewards, the palace also sent five imperial physicians to stay by you around the clock. Also, the eunuch also came to pass on the imperial decree to declare your title, you weren’t awake yet at that time, so I accepted the decree on your behalf.”
“The imperial decree to declare my title?” Xie Xuanchen frowned and asked, “What did he seal me as?”
“The emperor sealed you as Prince An. The emperor said that he treated you like his own son. From now on, we’ll stand equally as powerful as the Jin Manor. Because you’re older, you’re ranked slightly higher than Prince Jin.”
“Prince An?” Xie Xuanchen blurted the word softly. There is a lot of knowledge that goes into the name of titles, the names would take reference of a dynasty, the stronger the better, such as Qin, Han, and many more. If the title is named in reference of a place, naturally a wealthy land would be better.
But there is another case for the naming of titles, that is, in reference to auspiciousness, such as words that refer to health and so on. An, this word had a lot of meaning to it.
Xie Xuanchen sneered, without speaking. Mu Mingtang saw as his expression didn’t look good, so she asked, “My lord, is there something wrong with this title?”
“An, it can be interpreted as peace, or it can mean to know one’s place. He’s counting on me to behave myself, impossible.” Xie Xuanchen said, “I was first given the title of the Marquis of Wu’an, and later Prince Qiyang, all because of my own military exploits. Xie Rui wants to wipe away my hard word with his orders, how much more obvious can his intentions get.”
Mu Mingtang frowned upon hearing this: “Then, the imperial decree and the rewards……”
“The imperial decree has already been passed here. If we don’t accept it, isn’t it just giving them another spot to attack us with?” Xie Xuanchen said, “As for the rewards, why should we reject the fortune that came to us? Keep them all.”
Xie Xuanchen’s attitude was optimistic, Mu Mingtang liked it very much and she immediately said, “I think so too. The rewards are still piled up outside. I’ll sort them out and move them to the warehouse altogether. By the way, do you know where the register book for the warehouse is?”
Xie Xuanchen hesitated when he heard the term: “Register book?”
Mu Mingtang had a bad feeling about this when she saw his expression. Holding on to her last hope, she carefully probed: “The records for entering and leaving the warehouse, you have that right?”
Xie Xuanchen thought for a while and he looked at Mu Mingtang, his gaze was innocent looking: “I don’t know.”
You don’t know…… Mu Mingtang secretly gritted her teeth, she already felt that this person was unreliable, and sure enough, she wasn’t wrong about him at all! Mu Mingtang was so angry that she said, “How can you not care about anything, such a big manor, do you know how many things go in and out of such a big manor every day?”
Of course, Xie Xuanchen was totally oblivious about this. He was never short of money since young and had no idea about money management. Mu Mingtang looked at his gaze and knew the answer. Mu Mingtang was very angry, and said: “You’re a prince, is this how you manage your manor?”
Xie Xuanchen knew his place, and he wasn’t annoyed for being scolded. He was clear that he wasn’t really good in this area, but he was accepting of this, so he said casually: “I have you, don’t I?”
Mu Mingtang swallowed back her words upon hearing this. Xie Xuanchen immediately continued on proudly: “It’s enough to have only one person in the family who can manage the money. It used to be my mother, but now it’s you. Isn’t that just right.”
Mu Mingtang held back for a long time, but she didn’t say a word. Sure enough, Xie Xuanchen was spoiled by everyone and that’s why he had such a temper.
They both talked and walked for a long time without realising it. Mu Mingtang helped Xie Xuanchen walk back. The moment he sat on the Arhat bed in the room, the maid reported from outside the door: “Dear prince and princess, Princess Jin and Mrs. Jiang are here.”
“Jiang Mingwei?” Mu Mingtang frowned subconsciously, “Why is she here?”
Xie Xuanchen didn’t plan to meet anyone, but when he heard of the surname Jiang, he suddenly became interested.
“This Jiang, were they the one who adopted you?”
Mu Mingtang nodded, her eyebrows started to sink unconsciously: “Yes, it’s them.”
Xie Xuanchen was interested. He raised his eyebrows and his gaze was faintly intrigued: “It’s them. Ask them to come in.”
He started to stand up as he said: “Dress me, I want to meet your family in person.”
