I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 201
Xie Xuanchen silently looked at the night sky from the window for a while, lost in thought, and suddenly heard a soft voice behind him. So he turned his head and saw that the bed curtain was open, and Mu Mingtang was standing behind, seemingly hesitating.
Mu Mingtang was caught off guard when Xie Xuanchen suddenly turned and looked at her. She hadn’t decided whether to call him or not, but since she was discovered, she didn’t bother about her face anymore, and asked in a low voice, “Aren’t you sleeping yet?”
Xie Xuanchen knew why Mu Mingtang could not sleep peacefully, yet he pretended not to know, and asked, “What’s the matter?”
She bowed her head, hesitated to speak for a while, then gave an innocent smile in embarrassment: “I…I’m a little scared, so I can’t sleep.”
Xie Xuanchen sighed resignedly, he knew it! Xie Xuanchen could only close the window and approached her helplessly: “I told you that you won’t be able to sleep after listening to it, but you still insisted on asking about the corpse. Now, do you know why I hesitated to talk about those things?”
When she heard that, she didn’t dare to make another sound, but when she saw Xie Xuanchen walking towards her, she opened the curtain with a smile in her eyes, waiting for Xie Xuanchen to approach.
When he approached the bed, his eyes met Mu Mingtang’s eyes, his heart skipped a beat, and he immediately looked away. When people get old, will their thoughts become dirty without knowing? He thought. He was thinking about something all day long.
They laid on the bed, and Xie Xuanchen coaxed Mu Mingtang to sleep. After Mu Mingtang fell asleep, his mood became calm, and he gradually closed his eyes.
No need to worry about the unknown future, as everything will come naturally. No matter what happens, she will always be by my side.
After waking up the next day, Mu Mingtang was worried about Xie Xuanchen’s body. It just happened that the Imperial Physician Zhang was on duty at night, so when the sky became darker, Mu Mingtang took Xie Xuanchen and jumped out of the window again to see Imperial Doctor Zhang for consultation.
Imperial Physician Zhang checked Xie Xuanchen’s pulse, then stood up and cupped his hands: “Your Highness has lost a lot of blood, but fortunately, the first-aid was given in time, so it didn’t cause a serious problem. In the next few days, we should use more qi and blood-enhancing substances, be careful not to be impatient and irritable, and take care for a few days, so Your Highness will be able to recover soon.”
Mu Mingtang asked quickly, “What food should he eat these days?”
Imperial Physician Zhang said a lot of things to replenish blood, and Mu Mingtang nodded in response.
“Apart from food, are there any tonics?” She asked again.
At this point, Imperial Physician Zhang still shook his head: “It’s good to have tonic, but it’s only three-point poisonous. If the prince doesn’t feel uncomfortable, you can save it as much as possible. Although the prince was injured this time and lost qi and blood, his body is already weaker than before. But when he came here a few times before that incident, the prince was healthier. If the Lord can keep his current state, he will continue to recover.”
Xie Xuanchen felt something was wrong when he heard it, and wanted to stop the Imperial Physician, but it was already too late. When Mu Mingtang heard Imperial Physician Zhang say that he was “healthier and brighter than when he came a few times before”, she raised her eyebrows slowly and looked back at Xie Xuanchen.
Xie Xuanchen was sitting on the seat calmly without showing any guilty thoughts. Mu Mingtang studied him for a few seconds and smiled angrily, then turned and looked at the Imperial Physician Zhang.
“It’s been several days since the last visit of the Lord. This time he lost blood and was injured. Is he really all right?”
He has served in the Imperial Medical Bureau for more than 20 years and is used to thinking about a sentence three times before he speaks. When Mu Mingtang said this, Imperial Physician Zhang suspected the princess was worried about Xie Xuanchen’s illness. After all, once Xie Xuanchen got sick again, he would be unable to return to the sky. Xie Xuanchen had a sudden attack the day before yesterday, so it seemed to be reasonable for the princess to have such thoughts.
Imperial Physician Zhang thought that Mu Mingtang was secretly inquiring whether the disease had any influence, so he said: “This minister checks the pulse of the prince every ten days, and knows the pulse of the prince best. The pulse of the prince has steadily increased, although this time the prince has lost blood, the pulse is continuous. Princess, you can rest assured.”
Mu Mingtang smiled, nodded, and said, “Very good, once every ten days. During this time, doctor Zhang has worked hard.”
Doctor Zhang didn’t know that Mu Mingtang didn’t know Xie Xuanchen went out in the middle of the night. How could he think of the relationship between the two of them? He didn’t think much, and humbly responded to Mu Mingtang’s compliment: “This minister is not worthy for the princess’s appreciation.”
Xie Xuanchen sighed silently in his heart.
