I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 105
Translated by ShainaG Translations
- Come to meet your old acquaintance?
Jiang Mingwei sat in the reception hall and waited for a long time. The tea was even changed twice, but Mu Mingtang hasn’t come out yet. Jiang Mingwei was slightly annoyed, she was quite sure that Mu Mingtang was doing this on purpose.
Mu Mingtang was leaving her there to show off how prestigious she was. Jiang Mingwei looked down at this act. She sneered in her heart. As expected, the common folk has such narrow horizons. Even if she was named a princess, she was still petty. Look at her barbaric act, it’s such a joke.
Mrs. Jiang noticed that Jiang Mingwei’s expression didn’t look too good, she signalled to Jiang Mingwei several times, and finally smiled forcibly as she asked: “Is Princess An busy with something? Why hasn’t she come out after so long? If the princess has something on hand, we’ll just come back another day.”
Xiang Nanchun stood aside, she was respectful in her every move, and said: “Ms. Jiang and Princess Jin, please wait patiently for a while more, the princess and the prince are coming.”
Mrs. Jiang noticed something, but before she could even respond, a greeting from the maids came from outside the hall. Mrs. Jiang stood up in shock, and saw Mu Mingtang slowly walking in. The person who was walking next to her, isn’t that Xia Xuanchen?
Even Jiang Mingwei stood up, her mouth opened wide in surprise. She thought that Mu Mingtang was giving her a cold shoulder on purpose, she really didn’t expect Xie Xuanchen to come along with her.
Xie Xuanchen, isn’t he hanging desperately on his last breath?
Mrs. Jiang and Jiang Mingwei were slightly taken aback, and they quickly bowed at Xie Xuanchen: “Prince An, Princess An.”
Xie Xuanchen never walked this far in a long time. He didn’t want to show how weak he was in front of the people. Mu Mingtang walked very slowly, she stopped at every turn to look at the flowers and birds. Mu Mingtang didn’t know why Xie Xuanchen suddenly wanted to see the Jiang family, but it was a good thing that he was willing to go out. Mu Mingtang immediately helped him change into a black and purple coat along with a hair piece. When the two of them were ready to head out, they walked slowly, god knows how long they took.
At first, Mu Mingtang was confined in Yulin Hall. When Xie Xuanchen woke up, just like Xie Xuanchen’s chains, her confinement ended silently. No one mentioned anything about it, and no one gave an explanation to it. The guards didn’t mention it, and Mu Mingtang didn’t hold them accountable, so she suddenly regained her freedom.
After the two of them appeared, the atmosphere in the reception hall obviously changed. Although the Qiyang Manor had borne the name of a manor all these years, it was vacant for a long time, and many places were just there as if it was for display. For example, the reception hall to meet guests hasn’t been used for a long time.
Now that the two masters of the manor had fallen in place, even if the reception hall was left empty, it seemed to instantly glisten majestically. After Mu Mingtang sat down, seeing that Xie Xuanchen didn’t mean to speak, she smiled and said, “Mrs. Jiang and Princess Jin, please take a seat.”
Jiang Mingwei felt that the scene before her seemed magical as she sat down, and she couldn’t help but glance at Xie Xuanchen. His sharp eyebrows, unbothered gaze, and thin lips, although they were much paler, but his facial features were still exactly the same as that year.
The last time she saw him was the 2nd year of the Hongjia era.
A strange feeling arose in Jiang Mingwei’s heart. She looked at Xie Xuanchen, and for a moment she didn’t know where she was and what year she was currently living in. The name Xie Xuanchen was so profound that many people in the capital knew of him. Even Bei Rong, which was thousands of miles away, his name scared the Yelu family and they didn’t dare to act rashly because of him.
Xie Xuanchen was more like a symbol than a person. People in the imperial court were afraid of him, they blamed him and hated him, but faintly, they also depended on Xie Xuanchen. At least prior to the 3rd year of the Suihe era, no one was worried about the war.
Jiang Mingwei’s impression of Xie Xuanchen also remained as this. The only time she saw Xie Xuanchen up close was at Zhuque Gate during the 2nd year of the Hongjia era, a young man in red, riding on a white horse, prideful and full of spirits. That majestic sight of him left an unshakable impression on Jiang Mingwei’s heart.
