I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 164
Translated by ShainaG Translations
The world in Xie Xuanchen’s eyes were all twisted, there was a violent wave of energy in his body that had nowhere to vent, and every inch of nerves in his brain was clamoring with killing intent. Xie Xuanchen tried to suppress this madness at first, but he gradually became irritable, and his hands could hardly be kept under control as all he wanted was to just destroy something.
Xie Xuanchen suddenly reached out and knocked down the jade bottle in the corner of the room. The jade artifact fell to the ground and shattered into pieces. Mu Mingtang didn’t even have time to respond to the situation, Xie Xuanchen had already held a shattered piece of it in his hand and stabbed it directly into his arm.
Mu Mingtang screamed and hurriedly ran towards him: “What are you doing!”
Xie Xuanchen didn’t hold back, he plunged it deep into his arm, blood gurgled out, and his clothes were dyed red in an instant. The blood flowed down his arm, meandering on Xie Xuanchen’s hand, as it dripped to the ground drip by drip.
The pain stimulated his mind. Xie Xuanchen briefly recovered his sanity. He immediately distanced himself from Mu Mingtang. Before Mu Mingtang could move, he said, “It’s not safe here. Get out, right now.”
Mu Mingtang said with tears in her eyes, “Things were starting to get better, wasn’t it? You promised to accompany me to look at the begonias next year, to stroll around in the garden and watch ball matches together. How can you not keep to your promise?”
The topic about strolling around in the garden outside and watching a ball game was brought up in their argument just now. It was just moments ago, but hearing it now, it felt as if it was a world away.
Not long ago, Xie Xuanchen felt that he might have the chance to blend in into such a plain and mundane life. Now, everything was just merely a desperate hope again.
Xie Xuanchen faintly felt that his hands were going out of control, and immediately stabbed himself in the other arm. This time, both his hands were dripping blood, and the bright red blood was winding around on his pale hands, like blood-red lines on ice porcelain, beautiful yet fierce.
Mu Mingtang felt the pain even more than if she had stabbed it into her own body, she couldn’t help it anymore, ignoring the shattered pieces on the ground, she rushed to Xie Xuanchen’s side, and firmly pressed the wound on his arm: “You can’t do this anymore, there must be another way, if you continue on like this, you will lose too much blood.”
Xie Xuanchen’s mental state was extremely unstable now, his fingers were dug deep into the broken jade pieces as he held onto it, and there were bleeding cut marks on his fingers. In order to guard against Xie Xuanchen, all the sharp objects in Yulin Hall were removed, even porcelain items were rarely found here, in fear that Xie Xuanchen would kill with its shattered pieces. After the jade bottle was smashed, the incision was blunt, but Xie Xuanchen was still able to bleed this way. One can imagine how much strength he put into it.
However, that strength wasn’t used to save himself, but to stop himself from losing his sanity, so as to not do irreparable things. He endured the pain that felt like a sharp thorn was stuck in his head, and said, “I know of a way to control it. Go and get the Jing Erdan.”
“Really?” Mu Mingtang was surprised yet delighted when she heard this, “Where is the medicine?”
Xie Xuanchen told her where it was, and Mu Mingtang ran out immediately. Not long after she ran out, Xie Xuanchen weakened and knelt on the ground.
His blood dripped to the floor. Xie Xuanchen had planned to block the door, but after trying several times, he couldn’t stand up.
He knew that Mu Mingtang wouldn’t leave his side that easily, so he made up a reason to find a pill and sent her away. The Jing Erdan couldn’t really solve the problem, it could only give one a brief refresher, but it would intensify the manic that came after. This way, he could only take more and more of it, and his mind and body would become more and more dependent on the pill. Xie Xuanchen knew from the start that he should not eat the pill.
Presumably, at this moment, the people who were in charge of imprisoning him would be here soon. Mu Mingtang would meet them halfway, and with those people to stop her, she won’t run in again.
