I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 134
Translated by ShainaG Translations
At this moment, the two of them had already walked into the bamboo forest. They seemed to be isolated from the world, as all they could hear was the sound of the wind.
Xie Xuanchen said: “My wife jumped out of the window in the middle of the night. Isn’t it normal for me to follow her?”
Mu Mingtang was serious, but when she heard this, she couldn’t help but laugh: “Stop making jokes. I’m being serious.”
Mu Mingtang sighed, and decided not to continue on with this topic. Instead, she asked curiously: “When did you come out?”
“When you went out.”
Mu Mingtang looked at him in disbelief. She couldn’t see his face in the dark, but Xie Xuanchen seemed calm and that he wasn’t joking, Mu Mingtang was amazed: “I didn’t notice you at all…… even if you started to follow me as soon as I left.”
Xie Xuanchen didn’t answer, and obviously thought there was nothing special about it. The more Mu Mingtang thought about it, the more uncomfortable she felt. All the while, she thought Xie Xuanchen was weak and needed to be taken care of. However, Xie Xuanchen had the ability to defeat her with just one hand.”
Mu Mingtang suddenly realised that maybe Xie Xuanchen didn’t need her help at all.
Xie Xuanchen walked on for a while and realized that she hadn’t spoken for quite some time. He glanced at her strangely, and asked: “What’s wrong?
“It’s nothing.” Mu Mingtang shook her head, and said: “I realise that I don’t know you well at all. Every time I feel like I’m already close to you, reality would remind me that I know nothing about you.”
Xie Xuanchen chuckled and said: “Nothing is more complicated than a human’s heart. No one can completely understand you, except for yourself. Sometimes, I don’t even know myself.”
“How about you?”
“Me?” Xie Xuanchen said: “ I have no idea, not really I guess”
Afterwards, Mu Mingtang realized that she was completely fooled. At first, she thought that Xie Xuanchen was just a pretty boy. Although she learnt that this was not the case in the end, it still proves that first impressions always have the greatest impact on one’s perception. In this case, the pretty boy impression completely threw Mu Mingtang off.
Xie Xuanchen came from a rich and powerful family. After going through three dynasties and five Emperors, he still remained as strong as ever and in power. He was even highly recognised by the two founding emperors, Emperor Wu of the Zhou dynasty and Xie Yi. If it weren’t for his sudden illness, he would have taken over as Emperor.
Xie Rui had never taken over the throne. Aside from his achievements, one must admit that Xie Rui was indeed a capable man. Yet, he was terrified of his nephew, Xie Xuanchen. He couldn’t even get a good sleep when Xie Xuanchen fell sick.
If Xie Xuanchen was just a martial artist, why would Xie Rui be so afraid of him?
In comparison, Mu Mingtang was the only person who was genuine. Perhaps in Xie Xuanchen’s eyes, she was just like a bowl of water, her thoughts were all out in the open.
Mu Mingtang got even angrier once she realised that she knew nothing about Xie Xuanchen’s physical condition. All this while, she thought that Xie Xuanchen was very weak and was not expecting that Xie Xuanchen could follow her all the way here so easily. If he did not show himself, she would not have even noticed.
Xie Xuanchen was so dense that he couldn’t sense that something was wrong: “ Are you okay?”
“Yes, I’m fine. It’s just that I feel kind of angry.”
“Angry?” Xie Xuanchen had no idea at all, “What are you angry about?”
Mu Mingtang raised her brows, looked up at Xie Xuanchen and said: “ You don’t know why?”
Xie Xuanchen’s face looked rather in the night, and was shaking his head innocently.
Mu Mingtang was so furious that she was left speechless. After some time, she calmed herself down and said: “It’s okay, I need to be more tolerant to make our future together much more bearable. I forgive you.”
Xie Xuanchen was even more confused, he had no idea what was going on:”What’s going on?”
Mu Mingtang hummed and said : “I don’t care if you lie to someone else, but if you dare lie to me, you are so done! Anyway, I’m rich. It’s no big deal, I could just remarry someone.”
“Ha.” Xie Xuanchen laughed, his voice that echoed in the wind, sounded soft yet cold, “ As long as I’m still alive, I’m afraid that you will have to postpone your plan until further notice.”
“Then you better live for a long time.” Mu Mingtang said without thinking, “ The diagnosis from the imperial physician is way better than what I had in mind. You don’t even need to take any medicine. From now on, I’ll water the flowers with all those useless tonics.”
