I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 216
The emperor and the queen smiled, and the other palace officials and courtiers responded one after another, and there were endless jokes.
Jiang Mingwei glanced at Xie Xuanji quickly, and saw that he had put down the glass. It seemed that he had no other meanings, so she hurriedly drank the wine in her glass.
Everyone laughed and talked, and after a while, the topic turned to other people. Seeing that no one was looking at them anymore, Xie Xuanchen asked Mu Mingtang in a low voice, “What’s the matter with you, what did you want to say?”
Mu Mingtang glanced at Xie Xuanchen, hesitated, and finally shook her head. Seeing Mu Mingtang like this, Xie Xuanchen wanted to ask more and more: “What’s the matter?”
Mu Mingtang could only slightly turn Xie Xuanchen, and gestured to the wine vessel in his hand: “That’s mine.”
“I know. It’s yours.” Xie Xuanchen thought that Mu Mingtang was entangled with him about whose affairs, and immediately put the wine glass back in Mu Mingtang’s hand and said, “Okay, I’ll give it back to you now.”
Mu Mingtang stared at him with winded eyes. How can he casually do such things? Actually, she was going to ask for a new one.
If someone would come to toast, how would she drink it?
With singing and dancing, the palace filled with joy. Mu Mingtang looked at the colorful dances on the stage.
The emperor sat for a while and went back to change his clothes. After the emperor left, everyone relaxed a lot, and the sound of toasting and talking suddenly increased. Xie Xuanchen was sitting on the right hand of the emperor. Originally, the people behind did not dare to come to toast. Now that the emperor was out, other people dare to approach and came to talk to Xie Xuanchen.
Mu Mingtang was already a little dizzy. Seeing that the situation was wrong, she hurriedly excused herself and quickly fled the scene. She walked outside the palace, stood in front of the railing, and stayed under the blowing wind for a while. Only then her mind became clear.
However, she didn’t dare to go back. Xie Xuanchen was obviously good at drinking, but she was not, so she stood outside for a while and then turned to go back.
Mu Mingtang was unfamiliar with the place in the palace, so of course, she would not go far, so she walked slowly around the palace. As it was a coincidence, Mu Mingtang bumped into Jiang Mingwei who was walking from the other direction.
Jiang Mingwei also came out to sober up but did not expect to meet Mu Mingtang here. When two enemies met each other, both of them were drunk, and the smell of gunpowder floated around them.
Jiang Mingwei sneered and said as if pointing: “Some people are from the countryside, but they can’t get on the stage. If they have a little something good, they hurriedly pile them up on their bodies, and they are not afraid of being embarrassed. Sister-in-law, you say this kind of person is ridiculous or not?”
After speaking, Jiang Mingwei sighed and said, “Yes, maybe you haven’t seen anything good, so you are jealous.”
Mu Mingtang gave her a provocative look, smiled, and didn’t speak. Jiang Mingwei was irritated by her negligent attitude, raised her eyebrows and said, “I’m talking to you, what are you laughing at?”
“Oh! My sister is talking to me? I thought it was a dog running outside and barking. I didn’t notice you.”
Mu Mingtang smiled and said, “After all, the dog barks at people, and people can’t bark back.”
Jiang Mingwei’s face suddenly turned dark: “You, wh….who are you calling a dog?”
“Who should I call?” Mu Mingtang couldn’t help laughing, she was dressed up today, her temples were high, she was a little drunk at the moment, and her eyes were bright and moist. Mu Mingtang deliberately pretended to be looking for the dog and looked around: “I heard the dog barking just now, but I didn’t recognize where the dog was. Thank you sister for helping me to find it.”
After Mu Mingtang finished speaking, she immediately turned around and left. After Mu Mingtang left, the maids serving on both sides did not dare to speak, so they bowed to Jiang Mingwei and hurried away after Mu Mingtang.
Jiang Mingwei gritted her teeth and threw her sleeves so hard that she staggered and almost fell. The maids quickly supported her and said, “Princess, calm down.”
