I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 150
Translated by ShainaG Translations
The person who Jiang Mingwei was interested in, other women would naturally also fall for his charm. Jiang Mingwei knew that Xie Xuanji had great potential, and a bright future. For this reason, she was desperate to marry him. There were also many other women who had the same plan. Thanks to Xuanji’s capabilities, gentle demeanor, he was very attractive to all women. There were so many maids in the manor that would climb right into his bed.
Xie Xuanji was going to be the next emperor. As long as she could rise with him, what’s the big deal about their temporary status now? As long as she won over Xie Xuanji’s heart, and waited for him to become emperor in the future, isn’t it just a matter of time for him to announce her to be his Imperial Noble Consort?
Maybe, not only could she become the Imperial Noble Consort. If she was capable, she might even become the Empress.
Therefore, although everyone in the Jin Manor respected Jiang Mingwei as the concubine, they all had nasty schemes planned in secret and did not take Jiang Mingwei very seriously. Climbing into his bed, seducing him, and recommending themselves to become his wife, were very common.
Jiang Mingwei was thinking about which maid she should arrange to stand by the night. Her gaze slowly lost focus and was in a daze. Those sexy and hot maids were naturally ruled out, but you’ll never know a person’s true intentions, as the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover. Those women who look dumb and naive and were loyal to her might not even be trustable
The safest way was to arrange for a maid with a shriveled figure and a crude appearance to spend the night with Xie Xuanji. However, Jiang Mingwei had to protect her reputation, if she was too obvious with it, the others would think that she easily gets jealous, that she’s not virtuous, and is incapable of anything.
She can’t be too ugly, nor can she be too pretty. The balance in this is really giving her a headache.
Jiang Mingwei sighed again. It was both cloudy and cold all day today, and seeing this kind of weather was already depressing as she rested. Now, she even had to personally place potential love rivals around her husband, how could Jiang Mingwei feel good? She was depressed, but at this time, she heard a noise coming from next door.
Xie Xuanchen’s manor was huge, and there was a huge garden which separated them from the Jin Manor. It was actually really hard for Jiang Mingwei to hear the movements next door. However, as the An Manor was usually very quiet, when there was even a slight noise, it would be extremely obvious.
Jiang Mingwei asked the maid on duty: “Why is it noisy outside, what’s happening?”
The maid quickly walked out, and after a while, she came back to report: “Princess, the emperor has given the An Manor rewards. There were many people there to carry the items, that’s why the noise drifted to our side.”
“Oh, rewards?” Jiang Mingwei was in an even worse mood. She should not have asked, but Jiang Mingwei couldn’t resist her curiosity and asked further, “It’s not any special occasion, why did the emperor reward them?”
“The Emperor heard that Princess An had taken the initiative to give you the brocades. The emperor was very happy about it and sent envoys to reward her.”
So it’s about this, Jiang Mingwei’s face slumped. When Mu Mingtang took her set of jewellery, Jiang Mingwei was already very unhappy about it, now the emperor had sent someone to praise Mu Mingtang?
Jiang Mingwei pinched herself hard before she could finally control her expressions. The person who said this was the Emperor, and she did not dare to have any dissatisfaction towards the Emperor. However, it should be a two way street, after all, they were his biological family. The emperor’s people went to the An Manor, it’ll only take them a short while to get here.
Jiang Mingwei asked the maid to help her up and change. The maid found it strange and asked: “Princess, are you heading out?”
“I’m still sick, how would I have the energy?” Jiang Mingwei said, “but they are about to give me the reward soon. If I don’t look presentable, I’m afraid I’ll appear to be rather rude in front of the messenger.”
The maid’s expression turned even more awkward, she said softly and cautiously: “My princess, the messenger has already left.”
Jiang Mingwei was stunned, and didn’t respond at once: “Left?”
“Yes, after they came out of Prince An’s Manor, they directly headed back to the palace.”
