I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 114
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanchen knew what was wrong halfway through hearing her. He was slightly moved when he saw Mu Mingtang getting so angry for him.
He had long known that Xie Rui didn’t want to cure him, and he knew that his medicine was actually useless. As he didn’t care, Xie Xuanchen didn’t care about the imperial physician’s lazy work attitude, but Mu Mingtang was so serious about it that she seemed to be very outraged by this injustice for him.
Xie Xuanchen looked at Mu Mingtang’s side profile and didn’t answer her for a long time. After Mu Mingtang finished speaking, she realized that she was complaining to a patient. If she was the one who listened to these, she’d be in such a bad mood, how can she use this to disturb the patient?
Upon noticing Xie Xuanchen’s silence, Mu Mingtang thought that his mood was already affected by her, and quickly said: “I’m just ranting, it’s not that serious. I recognize one of the imperial physicians who had helped me before. I’ll secretly look for him someday, and I’ll definitely be able to ask for a cure.”
Xie Xuanchen stretched out his hand to support himself up from the bed as he wanted to stand up. Mu Mingtang hurriedly supported him. Xie Xuanchen stood on the ground and slowly said: “I’m dying soon, whether or not they cure me, it actually doesn’t matter.”
“It does matter.” Mu Mingtang helped him and whispered softly, “It isn’t an incurable disease. Tuberculosis poisoning can be cured. Why can’t yours be cured? As long as you take good care of yourself, you’ll be able to recover. It’s frustrating that these physicians are refusing to cooperate. How about, I secretly look for another doctor?”
Xie Xuanchen shook his head: “Don’t do it. Now everything in the manor is under Xie Rui’s surveillance. If we ask for an outsider to treat me, we’ll only bring chaos to his family. I’m already at this point in life anyway, and there is no need to involve any other people.”
Mu Mingtang thought of even more ideas just now, she even thought about how to avoid being caught by the others and look for an outside doctor. But when she heard Xie Xuanchen’s words, Mu Mingtang was bumped out. She knows that Xie Xuanchen was right, no one would dare to treat Xie Xuanchen. Even if she could secretly connect with the outside world and she did manage to find someone, she’ll just bring upon death to that person right after.
Xie Xuanchen already knew that this would happen. He wasn’t frustrated and was still arranging matters for tonight: “I didn’t understand what you meant last night, so I rashly made the decision for you, you were forced to sleep here for one night. I’ll look for an excuse so you can move out later.”
Xie Xuanchen assumed that Mu Mingtang would remarry sooner or later. He was destined not to go on long with Mu Mingtang, so he didn’t want to destroy her reputation, it was better for them to sleep in separate rooms as soon as possible. Most importantly, Mu Mingtang wanted to move out too.
Yesterday it was him who misinterpreted her message, and today it would be too terrible of him to just pretend to have forgotten about this.
Xie Xuanchen was talking about moving out, but he was suddenly interrupted by Mu Mingtang: “Wait.”
Xie Xuanchen looked down at her, Mu Mingtang bit her lips, as if she had made up her mind, and said, “I must move out, but I’ll stay here for a few days.”
Xie Xuanchen thought that there was something wrong with his ears: “Did you just say that you want to sleep with me for a few days?”
After saying this, Xie Xuanchen realised that his words could imply another meaning, so he quickly corrected: “I mean, you still want to sleep in the same bed with me?”
The more he explained, it just got even worse, Xie Xuanchen realised as he hadn’t spoken for a long time, his figure of speech weakened so much. He wanted to explain further, but was interrupted by Mu Mingtang who was gritting her teeth: “Shut up.”
Okay, Xie Xuanchen felt that Mu Mingtang must have understood what he meant, so he shut up. Mu Mingtang felt so awkward, she tried her best to keep a straight face and said, “Anyway, I’ve already slept here all night yesterday, a day or two won’t do no harm. The five imperial physicians take turns to be on duty. It’s hard to meet the old imperial physician alone, I can only try my luck when he’s on duty at night.”
Before Mu Mingtang finished speaking, Xie Xuanchen already understood: “You want me to cover you, so you can secretly look for that old physician?”
“Yes.” Mu Mingtang blushed after speaking. It was for a very serious reason, but it sounded like she was trying to do something else. Mu Mingtang added: “I’ll definitely move out. Don’t get me wrong.”
Xie Xuanchen was taking her seriously at first and focused on the matter at hand. He blushed awkwardly when he heard Mu Mingtang’s words, “You thought that I misunderstood you?”
He didn’t misunderstand her, he didn’t think in that direction. What is going on in Mu Mingtang’s mind?
