I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 145
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanchen’s tone was light, and he almost didn’t even want to say: “Precious and rare goods, someone wants it too, I guess.”
Mu Mingtang waited expectantly for a long time, and found that Xie Xuanchen was not surprised at all. She exclaimed: “How did you know?”
“It’s so easy to guess.” Xie Xuanchen said, “The people that are qualified to bid it with you, there’s only a few.”
Mu Mingtang was frustrated and felt that sharing her secrets with Xie Xuanchen was so disappointing. She sighed, held her head in a different direction, and went into a daze.
After Xie Xuanchen realized that Mu Mingtang didn’t reply to his words, he was a little surprised, and felt puzzled. He waited silently for a while, but when he saw that Mu Mingtang still didn’t mean to speak, he then asked: “What are you thinking about?”
“I’m thinking about how to resell those brocades.”
Xie Xuanchen surprisingly choked. He looked at her for a while and found that Mu Mingtang wasn’t joking about it: “Are you serious?”
“Yeah.” Mu Mingtang nodded, obviously thinking about it seriously, “Ten times the price, such a good price difference, I’d have to be a fool not to earn that money.”
Xie Xuanchen was left speechless, Mu Mingtang really didn’t like to take the normal ways. He hadn’t felt this surprised, that he couldn’t expect her next move, for a long time. Xie Xuanchen was also silent for a while, and asked curiously: “Don’t you really like this material?”
“I do like it.” Mu Mingtang turned around and said in a very serious tone, “But, I also like money. I can’t use it all anyway, so why should I lose out on the money?”
Xie Xuanchen was speechless for a while, and Mu Mingtang asked seriously, “Do you have any proper channels to sell the stock?”
This question was a hard one for Xuanchen. He thought for a while, and truthfully replied: “It’s not easy to find one.”
The hard part towards this was not the selling part, nor to find the right people to sell it off, but to round up the situation.
After all, he was surrounded by the emperor’s spies. How to not be suspected by the emperor and also explain this behavior is the most difficult part.
Mu Mingtang quickly thought of their situation and sighed: “That’s right, I forgot that I’m not in my home now, and I’m not at the Xiangyang’s. Forget it, we won’t lose out anyway, just keep it in the storeroom then.”
Although Mu Mingtang said so, she was still slightly sad. When Xie Xuanchen saw this, he suddenly said: “It’s just hard to find, it’s not impossible.”
Mu Mingtang turned around: “What?”
Xie Xuanchen stretched out his index finger and slowly pointed next door.
Mu Mingtang was stunned, and slowly realized what Xie Xuanchen meant. After she got what he was trying to say, she looked at Xie Xuanchen’s candid expression and couldn’t help but smile: “You……”
Ever since Jiang Mingwei became the princess, she wanted to build her power for her position as the Empress in the future, so she actively made friends with other manors and participated actively in various banquets in the capital. In order to show the demeanor of the future Empress of the country, Jiang Mingwei prepared a grand banquet in the Manor, and invited many officials and their wives to attend.
This banquet took half a month to organize, and Jiang Mingwei paid much attention to this. She wasn’t the legal wife in her previous life, and Mu Mingtang, the adopted daughter of the Jiang family, became the Empress. This became Jiang Mingwei’s sore point. Therefore, when she was reborn in this life, she was extremely persistent in hosting banquets, going out to socialize, to prove herself as the legal wife.
However, no matter how much she prepared, there are some things that she just can’t force, such as the venue. Xie Xuanji specially picked for his manor to be right next to Xie Xuanchen’s. By doing so, he could please the emperor, spy on Xie Xuanchen, and prove his good virtue. But correspondingly, some things have to be sacrificed.
In the capital city, there was very little land that was suitable for building manors. Xie Xuanchen was at the peak of power when he built his manor. Of course, his manor had no restrictions. The best and flattest land in this area was given as his manor. This would say that when Xie Xuanji built his manor here many years later, there was not much room to choose.
