I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 180
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Just as Mu Mingtang dawdled her way out, she happened to bump into the scene where Xie Xuanchen was gulping down his tea. Mu Mingtang was frightened by his rough drinking method, and asked, “What’s wrong with you, why are you drinking so much water all of a sudden?”
Suddenly hearing her voice, Xie Xuanchen tightened his grip subconsciously. There was a click from the cup, Mu Mingtang looked over and found that Xie Xuanchen had crushed the teacup that was made of white jade.
Mu Mingtang was left dumbfounded, as a crack slit diagonally from the middle of the jade cup. As soon as Xie Xuanchen let go, the tea cup immediately turned into a few petals and fell to the ground.
Mu Mingtang was stunned for a long time before she looked up at Xie Xuanchen incredulously. Xie Xuanchen met with her eyes, his gaze wandered inexplicably, but he still looked back at her confidently, and said, “This tea set is not of good quality, and it is just about time to replace them with a new set.”
Mu Mingtang was left speechless for a while, Xie Xuanchen was a dangerous man who could make a killer weapon out of nothing, that’s why there were very few porcelain items in Yulin Hall, to keep them away from Xie Xuanchen.
The cups and bowls that they use on a daily basis were either made of jade, gold or silver. This was also the case with this tea set. The teapot was carved entirely from white jade. The texture of the jade was soft and simple, with smooth yet bold lines, it was a rare boutique item. These types of tea sets always came in a set, especially jade items like these were one of a kind. If a cup was broken, the whole tea set could no longer be used.
Mu Mingtang looked at the pile of debris on the ground with much distress. Even if she felt that it was such a waste, she could only call the maids in to clean up the mess. This completely changed Mu Mingtang’s perception towards Xie Xuanchen as a prodigal son, all precautions just prove to be useless against this rascal.
After the maids left, Mu Mingtang gritted her teeth: “What do you think you’re doing! You just ruined a whole set of jade cups, do you know how much that set cost?”
“Just get another set.” Xie Xuanchen didn’t take the matter seriously. Obviously, he had never been less reckless and wasteful ever since he was a young child. Mu Mingtang was furious, and inspected Xie Xuanchen’s hand over and over again, Xie Xuanchen obediently let her. The two stood close to each other, Xie Xuanchen could faintly smell a delicate fragrance, it was not from any perfume or rouge, but the natural fragrance coming from Mu Mingtang’s hair.
The smell was beyond words, but it was a unique fragrance, which was far more attractive than any artificial spices. Xie Xuanchen subtly gave it a sniff, he suddenly remembered what had happened just now, and the tips of his ears started to warm up yet again.
Mu Mingtang was immersed in grief of losing such a large fortune this early in the morning, and was not in the mood to pay attention to such trivial matters. She held Xie Xuanchen’s hands and gave it a thorough look. His fingers were slim and pale, they weren’t meaty, his joints were distinct, and they looked extremely slender. However, it was this exact pair of hands that crushed the expensive jade cup in front of her.
Jadeite was used to make these cups, the hardness to it was not at all low. Moreover, based on Xie Xuanchen’s movements, the incident was a total accident. Although Mu Mingtang knew that he was stronger than a normal human being, it was still rather unbelievable for her when she saw this happen right before her eyes.
These hands clearly looked innocent and harmless, even weaker than a scholar’s, but they carry such immense strength. Mu Mingtang asked: “How did you crush it?”
After Mu Mingtang asked her question, she didn’t get an answer for a long time. She raised her head curiously and found that Xie Xuanchen was in a daze, his expression was weird, and he seemed to be thinking about something in an extremely focused manner.
