I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 214
New Year Eve’s Banquet (3)
Jiang Mingwei looked at the two of them with fire in her eyes. Even though she was not happy to see them, she still has to respect them. Mrs. Jiang quietly pulled Jiang Mingwei and gave her a wink. So Jiang Mingwei could only endure her dissatisfaction and reluctantly went to greet Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang.
When her brother-in-law and sister-in-law arrived, as a sister-in-law, she must take the initiative to say hello.
People greeting Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang moved aside when they saw Jiang Mingwei coming. She gave a strange smile and bowed her eyebrows to greet the two of them: ” Wang, Princess An. This princess will bless my brother-in-law and sister-in-law peace, and the brother-in-law and sister-in-law will be happy in the New Year.”
“It turned out to be my young sister and Mrs Jiang.” Mu Mingtang smiled and called Jiang Mingwei enthusiastically, ” We are one family, not outsiders. Get up quickly. No need to be polite. Sister is very gorgeous today.”
“Thank you, sister-in-law.” Jiang Mingwei responded and stood up slowly. She was wondering why Mu Mingtang praised her. “Thank you, sister-in-law. I can’t compare to you.”
As soon as Jiang Mingwei finished speaking, her eyes suddenly narrowed as if she saw something familiar. Seeing that Jiang Mingwei saw it, Mu Mingtang pursed her lips, smiled, and said, “My sister’s words are called praise. But I don’t dare to take credit because my sister has good eyes. I would like to thank my sister for giving me the things I love.”
Jiang Mingwei found out that the set of jewelry on Mu Mingtang’s head was not her own. How dare she wear this in public? Jiang Mingwei wanted to vomit in anger, but she had to hold up her face in front of the guests. She could not forget why she gave her precious white jade jewelry to Mu Mingtang.
Jiang Mingwei was burning inside. This was her custom-made headdress which she spent a lot of money on. She was waiting for a blockbuster on New Year’s Eve, but Mu Mingtang cut it off.
Mrs. Jiang understood her daughter’s thoughts at a glance, so she said quickly: “Princess An and Princess Jin are humble to each other as friends. A treasured sword matches a hero, and a beautiful jade should also match a beauty. This set of jewelry is very suitable for Princess An, and it is better than our Mingwei. Mingwei, don’t you think so?”
While Mrs. Jiang talking to Mu Mingtang, she pinched Jiang Mingwei secretly, so Jiang Mingwei could only nod her head, and said: “What mother said is very true, sister-in-law is better than me, and it is good fortune to give the headdress to sister-in-law.”
“Sister-in-law, what are you talking about?” Mu Mingwei asked.
Jiang Mingwei smiled and said, “Sister-in-law is a senior, how dare I think like that.”
“That’s good.” Mu Mingtang smiled and said, “My sister is filial, and the younger generation has filial piety. We are a family, younger siblings don’t have to be so polite in the future.”
Jiang Mingwei was very angry when she heard that Mu Mingtang responded with a big face. Mrs. Jiang spoke politely, but did Mu Mingtang really admit it? She also said that there is no need to be so polite in the future, bah, who wants to be polite to her?
They only talked for a while, and the people behind were already waiting. At this time, a palace maid hurriedly came over, and saluted Xie Xuanchen: “Your Highness Prince An. The Empress is very happy to know that the Prince and Princess An are here. Please come and sit down.”
“The Empress is here to invite you.” Everyone was stunned, how dare they delay, and they all gave way. Jiang Mingwei could only stop and saluted: “It was my negligence that delayed my brother and sister-in-law’s time. Please come up brother and second sister-in-law.”
“Then let’s go first.” Mu Mingtang smiled at Jiang Mingwei, and followed Xie Xuanchen. The emperor and the empress were sitting on the highest platform in the palace. The first seat on the right from the emperor’s has the highest status after the emperor and the best viewing angle. If Xie Xuanchen didn’t attend, that place should belong to Xie Xuanji and Jiang Mingwei. But now Xie Xuanchen attended the banquet, Xie Xuanji and others will naturally retreat.
Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen slowly walked away, Xie Xuanchen seemed to have said something to Mu Mingtang, and Mu Mingtang looked up at him angrily. The hairpin on Mu Mingtang’s temple became loose, and when she moved like this, the hairpin slipped and almost fell. Xie Xuanchen held the hairpin and slowly returned it to its original position. Mu Mingtang wanted to reach out to touch it, but Xie Xuanchen held his hand and whispered something.
Judging from the shape of his mouth, it should be: “Don’t move.”
When Jiang Mingwei saw that scene, she became more and more angry. How dare they show off their love wearing my jewelry.
Mrs. Jiang sighed, and quietly said to Jiang Mingwei when there was no one left or right: “This is in the palace, how many eyes are watching? You can bear with her for the time being.”
Be patience, be patience…Jiang Mingwei repeated it in her heart. Previously said that Xie Xuanchen would not survive this winter, so let her endure Mu Mingtang temporarily. She endured it, but now, it is the New Year’s Eve, and still Xie Xuanchen was breathing.
Endure, endure, until when? Jiang Mingwei became frustrated.
Jiang Mingwei gritted her teeth in anger, and lowered her voice to complain: “Mother, didn’t everyone in the palace say that he won’t survive this winter?” Mrs. Jiang hurriedly looked at it again. After seeing that no one noticed, she quickly pulled Jiang Mingwei to the corner and scolded: “Are you crazy? What kind of occasion is this, how can you say these words?”
“Mother, I know that. But no one is around us, I told this to you, not for an outsider, so no need to be afraid.” Jiang Mingwei said angrily. “I just can’t endure her every time. She has become more and more arrogant. How long will I have to endure it? “
“Mingwei, listen to mother, you have to endure it.” Mrs Jiang whispered. “Today, on New Year’s Eve, many officials returned to Beijing to report their duties. I don’t know how many people will come tonight. Even your father-in-law and mother-in-law have to hold him, but it is you. Can’t stand it anymore?”
Jiang Mingwei’s voice was dull, she also understood this truth, but she had enough.
Mrs Jiang felt a little distressed when she saw Jiang Mingwei’s face was not good. Jiang Mingwei has been married for half a year, and there is no flesh on her face, but the bones on her cheeks are more obvious than when she was in her parents’ home.
Even though Jiang Mingwei was married to Prince Jin, there were conflicts in her backyard now, and there was a girl who was highly favored by Xie Xuanji. Jiang Mingwei worked hard at home, and she had to make compromises outside and tolerated Mu Mingtang, she was really uncomfortable.
Mrs. Jiang sighed after thinking about her daughter, and she persuaded in a low voice: “Mingwei, you have to look at the long-term, you are walking on a path of glory that no one can match, so it is more difficult than others. But as long as you get through it, you will win.”
After speaking, Mrs. Jiang pointed out: “Besides a dying person, what is the difference between one month and one month less?”
Yes, the emperor wanted to use Xie Xuanchen as a signboard, so let him live through New Year’s Eve. However, he may not be able to survive after New Year’s Eve.
Xie Xuanchen is Mu Mingtang’s backer, so she will definitely be arrogant. But what will happens when Xie xuanchen dies? Let’s see. Let’s wait and see. Jiang Mingwei smirked.
