Translated by ShainaG Translations
Ch.190 Siskin (2)
The scene fell silent after Jiang Mingwei’s question, no one responded, and the scene was extremely awkward for a moment. The smile on Jiang Mingwei’s face turned stiff, and she was put on the spot. At this moment, the young boy next to her noticed this and hurriedly replied: “To answer your question, Concubine An is kind and good-hearted, she put much regards on a human’s life, that’s why she ordered them to summon the post-mortem examiner.”
Only then did Jiang Mingwei get out of such an awkward spot, she couldn’t just let this matter go, so she concentrated her unhappiness on Mu Mingtang: “Although this maid is a slave, she is just an innocent girl. How ridiculous is it to let a post-mortem examiner touch her body? Second sister-in-law, it’s a form of disrespect for the deceased to summon the post-mortem examiner. The deceased is above us all, so let the lonely soul go on her way, let’s not tarnish the girl’s purity.”
“A form of disrespect for the deceased?” Mu Mingtang said when she heard this, not concealing her contempt for even the slightest, “Is it disrespectful towards the deceased by touching the person’s dead body? In my opinion, letting the truth out is the biggest form of respect for the deceased. Letting the murderer run free, I’m afraid she won’t be able to go on her way in peace.”
Everyone fell silent after she said this. Jiang Mingwei looked around, embarrassingly: “Er…… sister-in-law, she accidentally slipped and drowned in the water. There’s no witnesses or evidence to indicate otherwise, how can you say that she was murdered?”
“That’s why we need the post-mortem examiner.” Mu Mingtang said smoothly. “There is no evidence to prove that she fell into the water and drowned herself. What if she was killed by someone, and then thrown into the water to fake a scene of her drowning to death? Just hear me out, you think that she drowned herself, and I think that she might have been murdered, so just summon the post-mortem examiner to come take a look at the body and investigate her cause of death.”
After Mu Mingtang was done, she glanced at Jiang Mingwei disgustingly: “Don’t you know about the seniority rule, when the seniors are talking, how could you interrupt like that”
Jiang Mingwei choked, and the words that were at the tip of her tongue were immediately blocked. For a while, she didn’t know whether to refute her on the matter about the maid drowning to death, or refute Mu Mingtang’s saying that she didn’t know about the seniority rule.
Jiang Mingwei’s mind went all blank, not knowing which aspect to talk about, and from the outside, it looked like she didn’t know what to say about all this. Xie Xuanji sighed in his heart and said: “Sister-in-law, calm down. Ming Wei can be rather impatient and impulsive at times. She actually didn’t intend to come across this way. You’re older than her, in aspects that she might have faults in, may you guide her on it.”
Xie Xuanji didn’t intend to get involved. Previously, when the two women argued, Xie Xuanji didn’t bother to join in on a quarrel between the women. But now, Mu Mingtang’s phrase “Don’t you know about the seniority rule” had involved Xie Xuanji in it, and Xie Xuanji could no longer just stand aside.
As soon as Xie Xuanji spoke, he concluded that Jiang Mingwei was at fault. Jiang Mingwei looked at Xie Xuanji in shock, but she didn’t dare to refute him in front of all these people, so all she could do was take it all in in silence.
Mu Mingtang enjoyed a complete victory, and even made her opponent’s husband admit to her mistake, which was extremely energising. She put on her haughty manner as a senior and said in a generous manner: “Seeing how sensible the third brother is, I, as your sister-in-law, will forgive you this time. However, there is a slight mistake in Prince Jin’s words. Although I rank higher than you both in terms of seniority, I am not older than her. Speaking of which, I am the youngest amongst us.”
Xie Xuanchen had kept himself away from the battlefield, and just listened to them, he neither spoke nor expressed his attitude. He couldn’t hold it in when he heard this, and smiled as he glanced back at Mu Mingtang.
“It sounds like you’re complaining about my age?”
“No, no.” Mu Mingtang quickly denied. Mu Mingtang felt exhausted. She smiled sweetly on the surface, but actually pinched Xie Xuanchen’s arm in secret. What is wrong with him, every time she quarrels with someone, her opponent is never a match for her, but Xie Xuanchen often teared her down.
