I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 172
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Jiang Mingwei was taken aback, she looked at Xie Xuanji in surprise, and lowered her head hurriedly after seeing his expression: “I was speaking improperly. I didn’t mean that. I just wanted to say that the second brother and second sister-in-law have such a good relationship. He spent so much money on her, and she stayed loyal to him. They have only known each other for three months, but their relationship is already this good, it must be a destined marriage.”
Xie Xuanji’s expression turned even worse. Yes, Mu Mingtang had been his fiancee for a year, but was only married to Xie Xuanchen for three months. Now she could sacrifice her life for Xie Xuanchen, but was cold towards him. What was Jiang Mingwei trying to express? Although everyone says that he is sensible, do they actually prefer Xie Xuanchen?
After the last incident whereby he revealed a hickey as he got changed, Xie Xuanji discovered that Jiang Mingwei was not as dignified and magnanimous as he thought she was, but Xie Xuanji felt that Jiang Mingwei was just going through a woman’s jealousy. He didn’t expect Jiang Mingwei to have such an ill-mannered side to her.
Xie Xuanji said coldly, “My second brother and her have been married for three months, but they didn’t know each other for only three months. She knew him as early as when the second brother was still the Wu’an Marquis.”
What? Jiang Mingwei was shocked. Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen had known each other a long time ago, even before the founding of the Ye Dynasty?
Jiang Mingwei had said those words to Xie Xuanji on purpose, so that he could stop his inexplicable pity for Mu Mingtang. However, the news Xie Xuanji had just revealed didn’t make Jiang Mingwei feel good.
She always felt that her first encounter with Xie Xuanchen was beautiful and romantic, she cherished it and kept it dearly in her heart, she could reminisce about it for a lifetime. Mu Mingtang was just a loser who picked up after her.
After going through her previous life, Jiang Mingwei actually lost quite some of her self-confidence, so she was eager to prove herself in this life. However, the harder she worked, the more the situation differed from what she had in mind. She did not become the favorite of her in-laws, and there were many women trying to compete with her in the back courtyard for favouritism, but she couldn’t win them.
It wouldn’t be that big of a deal if it was just such trivial matters in the back courtyard, as the person with power, she would have to be prepared to turn a blind eye on some matters, but Jiang Mingwei couldn’t stand Mu Mingtang’s attitude to stir trouble from time to time.
Mu Mingtang’s manor was better than hers, and she even wore more expensive clothes than her, but she still didn’t know how to tone it down and kept provoking Jiang Mingwei. Jiang Mingwei often got so angry that she felt that she might vomit blood from all the anger. At this moment, she would keep telling herself that she was the one who dumped her two fiances to Mu Mingtang after she met the both of them. Mu Mingtang was all for shows now, but in fact, she has always just been a loser.
This became Jiang Mingwei’s mental support. The villain doesn’t win for long. Jiang Mingwei was now waiting for karma to hit Mu Mingtang. Also, Jiang Mingwei won against Mu Mingtang on the love aspect, which made her faintly proud. But now Xie Xuanji actually said that Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen have known each other a long time ago?
Jiang Mingwei’s self-confidence was instantly shattered in half, and this even created a whiff of jealousy. She also met Xie Xuanchen when he was at his peak and was entitled as the Wu’an. Why did Mu Mingtang have interactions with him, but Xie Xuanchen couldn’t even remember who Jiang Mingwei was?
Jiang Mingwei was upset and stopped talking. Xie Xuanji was also caught up in his own thoughts, and he could finally have some peace. The two of them stood in relative silence for a long while. When outsiders saw the couple standing side by side, they thought that they were talking to each other, but in fact, they both had other thoughts in mind.
