I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 181
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanchen was thinking about Mu Mingtang’s fragrance just after she got out of her bath. At that moment, her hair was still wet and the smell was even more prominent, there seemed to be a faint warm fragrance coming from her. It was a pity that he hadn’t noticed it before.….. Xie Xuanchen was so immersed in his own thoughts, and suddenly Mu Ming Tang’s hair moved, as she looked up at him confusedly.
Xie Xuanchen snapped out of it abruptly. He had just got lost in his own fantasies. At this moment, the main character of his fantasy was looking right at him with wide eyes, and Xie Xuanchen started to panic, which he rarely does.
That feeling, as if he was caught red handed for doing something bad, and felt extremely guilty about it.
Xie Xuanchen coughed lightly, and said with an upright look: “Yes, you’re right.”
Xie Xuanchen watched as Mu Mingtang froze for a while, then raised her eyebrows suspiciously. Xie Xuanchen realized that he had answered incorrectly. He gave it a quick thought and took hold of the situation in a calm manner: “I was thinking about the palace affairs. Oh, yes, what did you just ask?”
Mu Mingtang did not doubt him, and could only repeat herself: “How did you do it?” Mu Mingtang said and picked up a cup, and also put on pressure: “Look, all angles are extremely hard. the round ones are not easy to exert force.”
Mu Mingtang then used both her hands and kneaded back and forth: “It isn’t even budging.”
Xie Xuanchen picked up a jade cup from the table, squeezed it lightly in front of Mu Mingtang, and another “crack” sounded, “Like this.”
The jade cup was divided into two halves, completely misplaced. Mu Mingtang froze in her actions. Xie Xuanchen looked at Mu Mingtang’s expression and thought she hadn’t learned the trick to it yet, so he picked up the last remaining jade cup: “Look at my demonstration, if you want to learn, I’ll ask them to go out and get a few more sets……”
“There’s no need, no need for that!” Mu Mingtang quickly got a hold of Xie Xuanchen’s hand and rescued the precarious jade cup from him, “I don’t want to learn, you don’t have to demonstrate it again.”
Mu Mingtang was afraid that Xie Xuanchen would accidentally crush another jade cup, and reached out to stop him without even thinking much. Xie Xuanchen’s hands were suddenly covered with a sense of warmth and softness. They had had physical contact before, but they always had a reason for it at the time, and no one was embarrassed before it. But today, Xie Xuanchen was just thinking about something extremely inappropriate. At this moment, when Mu Mingtang held his hand, he suddenly noticed many details that he hadn’t paid attention to before.
For example, a woman’s skin was extremely delicate and soft, her hands felt so soft, what about other parts of her body?
After Mu Mingtang kept the two remaining jade cups with lingering fear, she looked up and found that Xie Xuanchen was in a daze yet again. She waited for a while, and noticed that Xie Xuanchen was extremely focused, and was not at all distracted by what was happening in the outside world.
Mu Mingtang remembered what he said just now. He said that he was thinking about affairs in the palace. Mu Mingtang came to a realisation, that he was thinking about such major issues of his kingdom, no wonder he was this serious.
Mu Mingtang didn’t bother him, and quietly took the remains of the white jade tea set and went out. When she returned, Mu Mingtang realised that Xie Xuanchen seemed to have something on his mind, his expression was extremely serious, especially when he looked at her.
Mu Mingtang still felt awkward about the incident where he saw her in the midst of changing this morning, Xie Xuanchen suppressed his expression, and Mu Mingtang was too embarrassed to look at him. When the two ate together, the atmosphere felt extremely awkward.
After the meal, it was time to change his dressing as instructed by the imperial physician. The maid came with the medicine, alcohol rub and clean gauze and placed it on the table, then exited. This had became the unspoken rule. The maids didn’t dare to stay in Xie Xuanchen’s presence for a long period of time, Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang didn’t want them to follow them around too closely, they came to a tacit understanding, and the maids could also feel relieved.
