I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 176
Translated by ShainaG Translations
When Mu Mingtang woke up the next day, she realised that she was in another bed, which was terrifying.
She woke up in shock, turned her head and saw a familiar side profile beside her, her brain couldn’t process what was going on as she froze there for a moment
Xie Xuanchen was woken up by her movements. He opened his eyes and looked at the sky outside, then laid back in his original position and went back to sleep peacefully.
As if he didn’t notice that there was another person beside him. Or it didn’t matter if there was another person.
As she sat on the bed, Mu Mingtang fell in a daze when she saw such a psychedelic scene. Everything was such a blur that she felt like she was dreaming. She sat there for a while, and her arms felt cold after a while, so she wrapped herself under the quilt again.
She was sitting on the bed. From this angle, she could clearly see Xie Xuanchen’s composed and beautiful face as he slept. Mu Mingtang looked at him for a while, she couldn’t help but softly push Xie Xuanchen: “Do you remember how you went to sleep yesterday?”
Mu Mingtang was out of words, it was hard for her to explain such a thing, and she felt that she was flattering herself. Mu Mingtang struggled for a while, but still couldn’t help but ask, “Why do I recall that I was sleeping in the small corridor behind?”
He admitted to it, but Mu Mingtang didn’t know what to say. She scratched her head, her morning hair was puffy, and there were still a few strands of hair that were out of place: “Then why am I here?”
“Try giving it a guess?”
Xie Xuanchen was too calm, and Mu Mingtang was about to lose it: “It can’t be me sleepwalking at night, right?”
“I might have been sleepwalking and got myself over here.”
“You carried me here?”
Xie Xuanchen’s reply sounded so calm and straight to the point, this made Mu Mingtang choke on her words. Her big round eyes glared at him as she didn’t know how to react.
At this moment, Xie Xuanchen slowly opened his eyes and softly glanced at her: “I might have dragged you over here. You didn’t even wake up during the whole journey, you’re really thoughtless.”
So that’s how things went down, Mu Mingtang was slightly embarrassed, and said, “I drank a medicine with calming effects before going to bed yesterday. It’s understandable why I was in such deep sleep.”
“It’s not just yesterday.”
Mu Mingtang couldn’t refute him, so she didn’t even bother to say anything. She looked around, then suddenly scooted closer to him with her quilt, and whispered: “Why did you bring me back here? I woke up once last night, and thought that I could use this opportunity to just stay there, from then on, I would be able to sleep there with a legitimate reason. You brought me back, what should we do next?”
Xie Xuanchen paused strangely and sat up with a plain expression on his face. He was still trying to peacefully get some sleep before, and now he suddenly decided to get up: “I don’t know, I didn’t know your plan before. However, since matters are already this way, we should first settle the spies outside. I’m afraid that there will be even more people keeping a lookout on me.”
Mu Mingtang sighed dejectedly: “Okay, but it was such a good opportunity……”
Xie Xuanchen breathed a sigh of pity with an upright tone and said: “Yes, it’s such a shame.”
Mu Mingtang was not as thick-skinned as Xie Xuanchen. After Xie Xuanchen wakes up, he doesn’t even think about it, and could still lie in bed with a peace of mind, but Mu Mingtang couldn’t. Seeing as Xie Xuanchen sprung into action, Mu Mingtang also got out of bed.
Mu Mingtang stood on the foot rest, as she coiled her hair casually. Although the place where the two of them lived was called the sleeping hall, the space inside the hall was actually huge, it was divided into several independent spaces by screens, curtains, and fine carvings. Among them, the place where they both slept was a small independent space. There were three layers of bed curtains, and the outermost was a thick purple and gold embroidered brocade, which could completely block off everyone’s view from outside when placed down.
