I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 151
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Jiang Mingwei was angry about this matter for the whole afternoon. None of the maids dared to approach Jiang Mingwei. Only the nanny came to talk to Jiang Mingwei with a smile on her face.
“Princess, you’re still sick, your body is very precious. Don’t hurt yourself for the sake of irrelevant people, it’s not worth it.”
“How would I not know that these people in the manor have their eyes on me, praying that I’ll fall. I want to recover as soon as possible too.” Jiang Mingwei got angry when she said this, “but I find it so unjust. I am the daughter-in-law of the emperor’s first son, I am part of the royal family, but now, I am being wronged. If I didn’t do well, then forget about it, but I tried my very best. Not only did I socialise with people, I was also in charge of this huge manor. I even head to the palace rather frequently to show my filial piety towards the Empress. What did I do badly? Why should I be treated like this?”
The nanny didn’t dare to answer her. Jiang Mingwei had grievances against the Emperor and Empress, and the nanny would never dare to respond. She laughed dryly and said: “I know you’re capable and that you have worked hard, but you should look at the bigger picture. As time goes by, your actions will prove itself.”
However, her resentment was huge, even if she usually controlled herself, once she blurted the words out, she couldn’t stop. Jiang Mingwei was like this. After she mentioned something, she couldn’t help it anymore. She complained: “I do hope they know this clearly, I’m just afraid that they don’t. I’m his true daughter-in-law, they asked me to be frugal, but they let Mu Mingtang spend lavishly. I was scolded for spending money to make a new dress, but Mu Mingtang could just casually invite the whole street of stores to her manor on such a large scale and such a large sum of money, but the officials didn’t say anything, and instead rewarded her, and that even filled up the shortfall in her books. Saying this out loud, would anyone even believe that we were their real sons and daughters-in-law?”
“Oh, my lady!” The nanny was frightened by her words. She hurriedly looked to the side and saw that there was no one there, she wiped her sweat with fear, “Princess, I raised you, you can only say these things to me. I’ll treat it as if you’re talking nonsense because you’re sick, but you should never mention names!”
A vague complaint could be seen as pretending to be silly. The nanny only needed to say that Jiang Mingwei was scolding some people, but if she brought in the Emperor and Empress, this would be a serious crime. After the nanny finished speaking, Jiang Mingwei snapped and deeply regretted her words. However, she couldn’t bring herself to apologize for her mistakes, and she still persisted as she said, “Why, was what I said wrong?”
Seeing that she had a temper, the nanny could only advise her: “I can understand your pain, but why are you comparing yourself with her? Fear is the heart of love. They’re controlling you, it is because they have high hopes for you! On the contrary, the one who gets what she wants, now that’s crushing her. Everyone knows that Prince An will not survive past this winter. Seeing as the weather is getting colder, I am afraid the time is about to come. She can only continue on for ten more days to half a month. Princess, just bear with it, is it that hard?”
Under the nurse’s persuasion, Jiang Mingwei calmed herself down. Jiang Mingwei couldn’t help but countdown to the days. It was now mid-October. The imperial physician said that Xie Xuanchen would not survive past this winter. Presumably, she would receive the news of Xie Xuanchen’s death next month at the latest.
After Jiang Mingwei thought about this, she realized that she was looking forward to the death of the person who she had been in love with, and she couldn’t help but feel sad. She was obviously sad that Xie Xuanchen would die at such a young age, but she was reborn into the time where Xie Xuanchen was still alive, and she couldn’t wait to get everything back on track soon.
This was a rather ambivalent feeling.
