I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 174
Translated by ShainaG Translations
After the assistant officer of the Imperial Medical Bureau finished, Xie Xuanji was obviously displeased: “Assistant officer of the Imperial Medical Bureau, I’m not trying to question you, but the last time you clearly told the emperor, whether the second brother could live on, it all depends on this winter. Why is it now pushed back to January of next year? You keep going back on your words, are you defying the royal power, and playing games with the emperor?”
“I dare not!” The assistant officer of the Imperial Medical Bureau hurriedly knelt on the ground, and Imperial Physician Wu also knelt down hurriedly after seeing this, “Emperor, please be fair in your judgment, Prince Jin, please be fair in your judgement, I would never dare to disrespect the emperor. It’s just that there are many different variables that go into being medicinal practitioners, everyone knows that pregnant women are pregnant for ten months, but the delivery can be advanced or or even postponed to as late as January, I really dare not speak too confidently about Prince An’s illness. After discussing with my colleagues, we unanimously came to this conclusion.”
The assistant officer of the Imperial Medical Bureau Cheng said this earnestly, it didn’t seem like he was just babbling nonsense. The emperor said with a warm tone: “Okay, you may rise, I wasn’t doubting you. Prince An is only nineteen years old. It would be good news if he is able to get through the New Year. After the New Year, he’ll be coming of the age of 20, with the New Year’s ecstasy, maybe Prince An might be able to completely recover from it. So the next time I visit my brother, I will be able to stand before him confidently.”
The ministers and eunuchs in the hall all bowed down, they didn’t dare to listen to such words. After the emperor said this in a gentle voice, as if he was a good-tempered middle-aged man, he raised his hand to everyone: “All may rise. I am well informed about Prince An’s matter. You all have been busy all afternoon, and have worked hard, you may now excuse yourself and head to rest.”
“Yes. Your humble servant excuses himself for the time being.”
“Your servant excuses himself for the time being”
After everyone left, the emperor sighed regretfully as he looked at the core of the fire that was dancing around on the table.
What a pity.
In the Yulin Hall, Xie Xuanchen suddenly woke up, not knowing how long he had slept. He opened his eyes and found that he had a cotton cloth wrapped around his arm, and his blood-stained clothes had been changed out. The room was dark, only a small light was left in the corner of the room.
The moment Xie Xuanchen woke up, he realized that Mu Mingtang was not by his side. Perhaps it was because he realized this when he was deep in sleep, and suddenly woke up in shock.
Without a word, Xie Xuanchen stood up as he pushed himself up using the bed. He only walked a few steps before he startled the maid on night watch awake.
When the maids saw him, they were so frightened that they couldn’t speak coherently: “My…….my lord. I have neglected my duty, please spare my life.”
Xie Xuanchen lowered his gaze and glanced at the bedding that they had placed on the floor, and asked, “Who let you sleep here?”
The two maids glanced at each other and said softly: “To reply to your question, it was the imperial concubine Jin’s orders.”
Sure enough, this disgusting approach was the acts from next door. Xie Xuanchen was originally pale enough, his face turned even paler after losing so much blood. Especially at this moment, the room was not completely bright yet not completely dark, the light was dim. His exquisite and perfect side profile looked like a ghost.
Xie Xuanchen gently curled his lips, and in the next instant, his thin lips said coldly, “Get lost.”
The two maids were frightened and they did not dare to delay any further, they ran out as they pulled on each other. After the maids on the night watch left, the maid outside was also alarmed, and Xiang Nanchun immediately greeted him by the door with a lamp: “My lord.”
Xiang Nanchun also seemed to get up in a hurry. She bowed at Xie Xuanchen and asked cautiously: “My lord, It was my negligence. May I ask what orders you may have?”
Xie Xuanchen was too lazy to talk nonsense with her, and asked directly: “Where is the concubine?”
