I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 139
Translated by ShainaG Translations
“Aside from my treasures, I also receive quite some annual tribute as the ruler. If you don’t spend it, the money will go to waste.”
Mu Mingtang still hesitated: “Really?”
Xie Xuanchen didn’t answer, but raised his voice directly and exclaimed, “Xiang Nanchun.”
Xiang Nan Chun was waiting at the door, and at this moment, she knelt down and said, “Slave is here.”
“In the afternoon, invite the clothing store on Caomen Street to the palace and make some clothes for the princess.”
Xiang Nanchun responded: “Yes.”
Mu Mingtang was about to say something but stopped, and finally accepted Xie Xuanchen’s kindness: “Thank you, Master.”
“We, as husband and wife, are a team, it’s yours in the first place, you don’t have to thank me.” Xie Xuanchen glanced at her through the mirror, “If there is a next time, I will treat it as if you’re trying to go against me.”
Mu Mingtang lowered her head and smiled softly. She combed Xie Xuanchen’s hair until it was smooth, held it in her hand, fixed it on the top of his head skillfully, and then tied the crown. After Mu Mingtang finished, she went to the dining room for breakfast with Xie Xuanchen.
In the past, as Xie Xuanchen woke up at random times, Mu Mingtang had always had breakfast by herself. It was rare for the two of them to be present today. They walked together. Xie Xuanchen seemed to be reminded of something and said, “I brought back a few phoenix crowns from the harem of the former emperor of Dynasty Shu. It was too heavy for the journey back, so I pried off the emeralds and gems on the crowns and probably some loose pearls. Let some servants go get it from the storeroom, you can use them to make some jewelry.”
Mu Mingtang felt her scalp tightened when she heard this: “The jewels on a phoenix crown?”
When Xie Xuanchen heard that Mu Mingtang didn’t like it, he changed his mind and said, “Yes, it’s not that lucky. Let’s change. I remember that when I was about to leave, I even took the dragon head from the former emperor’s dragon chair. Melt that……”
“There’s no need for that.” Mu Mingtang hurriedly stopped him. She was just a normal folk, she didn’t care whether it was auspicious or not, but the phoenix crown of the former Empress Shu or the dragon chair of the former Emperor Shu, she really couldn’t accept it.
Mu Mingtang had always lived her life in a lawful and law-abiding manner all these years. She never heard of such thrilling matters. She tactfully refused: “I don’t think it is necessary. I have enough dowry, and I don’t need to add new ones.”
“How is it the same? The dowry is your belongings. During that period of time where I was still in a coma, you even had to offer the dowries by yourself. How can I treat you like that?”
He was talking about when he was still in a coma, but Mu Mingtang immediately understood that he was talking about last night. Yesterday, Mu Mingtang gave some of her gold jewelry away to bribe Doctor Zhang. After they left, naturally those things could not be taken along with her.
Mu Mingtang said, “Didn’t you just said, that we are a team. Besides, I willingly used my dowry to support you, why would I care about such a small matter?”
“Then I have to make it up for you.” Xie Xuanchen said softly, “What if you don’t have enough dowry to support me anymore?”
Mu Mingtang couldn’t help it anymore and let out a laugh. The two of them walked to the dining room and inevitably there were maids following them along the way. When the maids heard the prince utterly say, “What if you can’t support me anymore”, their eyes almost popped out, and they quickly lowered their heads.
Although no one in the palace dared to say this, everyone knew that the prince was a killing machine with a reputation that would scare the soldiers away for thousands of miles. Even until now, when the people at the border mentioned Xie Xuanchen, they could hardly hide their fear. So, their killing machine of a prince, in his own mansion, could just blatantly live off his own wife?
