I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 205
New Year’s Eve (3)
When Xie Xuanchen became ill, the emperor banned him from going out. The emperor didn’t want Xie Xuanchen to run around, so no one dared to go against the emperor.
Now, Xie Xuanchen wanted to go out, so no one dared to stop him. So, many guards escorted Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang in the name of protection under the emperor’s command. Not only the guards, maids, and many others followed them.
Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen were sitting in a horse cart, and there were many servants behind them. Even though it was annoying to be followed by so many people, Mu Mingtang didn’t care about it. When the cart slowly drove out of the palace and turned into the alley, she secretly opened the window curtain to see around out of curiosity.
The whole town had become very lively, streets were full of various shops and endless people. The capital has a population of one million people, and now that the New Year was approaching, you can imagine how lively the streets were.
After seeing the lively atmosphere, Mu Mingatang became more excited. Calling the store owner into the mansion was different from going out. She thought.
There are also many people performing fireworks on the street to attract audiences to buy things at the stalls. So on the way, Mu Mingtang saw a lot of them, and when she saw something strange, she couldn’t help but pull Xie Xuanchen to see it.
Xie Xuanchen just looked at her and smiled softly. When Mu Mingtang sees an exciting place, she pulled Xie Xuanchen to look at it.
Xie Xuanchen had seen a lot of things before, so he didn’t think there was anything unusual. But when he saw the current capital city, he felt he was a little bit out of date.
Because of Mu Mingtang’s excitement, the horse carriage stopped frequently, and servants were running around to both sides to buy things, so roads were blocked. Pedestrians got annoyed and wanted to complain, but after seeing guards with swords, they didn’t dare to say anything.
Even though people tried to avoid Xie Xuanchen and others, some children were curiously staring at the luxurious cart in the middle of the road. Many young women looked at well-dressed maids who were moving things into the cart enviously.
“Which family lady is buying so many things?”
“The carriage is decorated with gold, so it should be a noble lady”
“More than that!” A knowledgeable person pointed to the guards on both sides of the carriage. “Did you see it, the one with the sabre, at least it must be the royal family.”
The sabre is a ceremonial sabre, only worn by the imperial guards. Ordinary people can’t even think of a family that can make the Imperial Guard serve as their guard.
At this moment, Mu Mingtang didn’t know how much trouble her trip had caused outside. So she put down the curtains with satisfaction and said, “Okay, let’s go to see the lanterns. Do not delay others’ business, let’s go”.”
As the driver got the order, he drove the carriage forward, turned the corner, and entered another street. However, their team was really huge. So when their carriage had turned the corner, they just bumped into another two teams that came from the other side.
It was also a coincidence that the carriages of three powerful families appeared on the same street at the same time.
There was a large population in the capital. A lot of shops were there on both sides of the road, so the streets were very narrow.
Originally, when a carriage went, the pedestrians on both sides avoided it a little, and they could live in peace, but now that three carriages appeared together, it was not enough to go.
Although the other two carriages went in the same direction, they traveled without blocking the road. Now, when Xie Xuanchen’s carriage suddenly came from the opposite direction, it blocked the road with the other two. At that moment, all three teams could not pass or go back.
The three families all brought many servants and suddenly blocked the entire street, pedestrians on both sides squeezed hard, and the driver tried to control the irritable horse, and replied to the inside: “Prince, princess, there are two carriages ahead, blocking the road, and it is impossible to pass.”
Mu Mingtang felt how crowded it was outside, and asked Xie Xuanchen: “The road is blocked, what should I do?”
“It’s simple. Let them retreat to the side of the road and make the way for us.”
As soon as Xie Xuanchen finished speaking, a young servant came over and shouted at them with a shrill voice, “You guys in front, go back, don’t block our young master’s way!”
