Ch.191 Siskin (3)
Mu Mingtang’s smile turned even softer, and said: “My lord, you are a righteous young hero and an unworldly talent. Why would someone complain about your old age? This sentence is in itself wrong, you are young, so the saying of old age is not even valid.”
Xie Xuanchen felt the pressure gradually increase on his arm, he smiled and said, “Your sweet praises, if I didn’t experience it in person, I would have believed you.”
“My words are facts, every word is true. My lord, don’t wrongly accuse me.”
Xie Xuanji and Jiang Mingwei both felt speechless at the two’s sudden flirting session. Xie Xuanji felt sour about this scene, he didn’t want to look at them any further, and silently looked away.
However, even if he couldn’t see them, he could still hear them. Xie Xuanji tried to go through with it but couldn’t. He left by coming up with the excuse to head over to look at the scene of death.
As soon as Xie Xuanji left, Jiang Mingwei gave it some thought, and followed Xie Xuanji. Xie Xuanji and his wife both left. Mu Mingtang waited until the people around them were all gone, she then lowered her voice and asked Xie Xuanchen, “Why did they leave? Were they disgusted by us?”
Xie Xuanchen at first kept his arrogant and indifferent image as the former God of War, but was about to burst into laughter when he heard Mu Mingtang’s words, but taking into account the people around him, all he could do was hold back. He glanced at Mu Mingtang with a sullen expression, but he couldn’t help but smile when they met gazes.
The absence of Xie Xuanji made it convenient for Mu Mingtang to inspect both the corpse and the surrounding environment. Although she couldn’t get too close, it was undoubtedly much more convenient without Xie Xuanji standing beside her.
The two of them looked around for a while, then the post-mortem examiner came. When the post-mortem examiner saw Xie Xuanchen, he knelt down and bowed: “Prince An, greetings to both Prince An and Concubine An.”
“You may rise.” Xie Xuanchen stretched out his hand and gestured to the other side, and said, “Let’s take a look at the corpse.”
“Your wish is my humble command.”
After the post-mortem examiner obeyed his command, Xie Xuanji and Jiang Mingwei heard his voice and walked back from the other side. When the post-mortem examiner saw Xie Xuanji, he could only perform the greetings yet again.
Xie Xuanji stretched out his hand as a sign for exemption, and said: “There’s no need for such formality, inspecting the dead body is much more important right now. This woman is Concubine An’s maid, and was found drowned in the lake today. Princess An couldn’t bear the death of her maid and wants to investigate her cause of death. You must put in extra care and find out the true cause of her death, so that Concubine An can be at ease. Do you understand?”
Sweat oozed from the post-mortem examiner’s head, as he nodded along. When he got the order, he went to check on the corpse that was placed on an empty ground. Jiang Mingwei didn’t want to face the direction of the corpse, she stood sideways to avoid looking at it, and sighed: “A innocent girl, she can’t even walk down the rainbow bridge in peace.”
The post-mortem examiner understood the meaning behind Jiang Mingwei’s words, his movements suddenly became stiff, and he didn’t know where to start. Mu Mingtang frowned. She glanced at Jiang Mingwei and said, “Sister, if you don’t want to look at it, you may head back. No one is forcing you to stay. If you have no intentions to help, at least don’t interfere with official duties.”
Jiang Mingwei’s eyes widened as soon as she heard this, and was about to refute, Xie Xuanji let out a soft cough beside her, and said, “Sister-in-law is right, keep quiet.”
Jiang Mingwei was not angry at first, but when she heard what Xie Xuanji had just said, she was fuming with anger. Seeing as Jiang Mingwei’s face had turned green, Mu Mingtang turned around and smiled at Jiang Mingwei with Xie Xuanchen blocking the sight of her from the others, she even winked at her.
Xie Xuanchen thought to himself that children nowadays are really lively, look at this level of maturity, even the maturity of a five year old was an overstatement. He lowered his head and coughed. When Mu Mingtang heard him, she immediately looked up and asked, “Are you okay?”
