I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 217
After Mu Mingtang walked away from Jiang Mingwei, she planned to return to the banquet, but unexpectedly met Xie Xuanji on the way. He was standing on the side of the road, obviously waiting for her. So Mu Mingtang just pretended she couldn’t see him and turned her head to go another way.
Xie Xuanji’s voice sounded from behind: “Sister-in-law, stay.”
Mu Mingtang could not think of what to do, so she stopped walking.
“I have something to say to my sister-in-law.” He said again.
At this point, Mu Mingtang turned around, raised her eyebrows and asked, “Okay, what does King Jin want to say?”
When Xie Xuanji came over, the maids stepped back wisely and guarded each intersection. Xie Xuanji looked at Mu Mingtang for a while, she was dressed in purple today, showing her long neck and delicate skin. Mu Mingtang’s appearance was really pleasing to the eye.
Xie Xuanji sighed silently and said, “I know you have grudges in your heart, but Mingwei is innocent, why do you always target her?”
I’m targeting Jiang Mingwei? What nonsense is he speaking?
Mu Mingtang glanced at Xie Xuanji in surprise and suddenly realized: “Oh! have you heard it?”
Xie Xuanji said nothing, apparently tacitly agreeing. Xie Xuanji was drinking in the back just now, but he was sitting on the seat behind the vine bushes. Neither Mu Mingtang nor Jiang Mingwei found him, but Xie Xuanji listened to the conversation between the two.
Mu Mingtang laughed immediately and said, “You heard it all, and you still have the face to question me? His Royal Highness King Jin, wake up, she was the one who provoked me first. Just her, you still say she is innocent?”
Xie Xuanchen was speechless after listening to Mu Mingtang’s words. He had just listened to Jiang Mingwei’s conversation with Mu Mingtang. That was indeed beyond his expectations.
In his mind, Jiang Mingwei was a kind-hearted, soft-spoken woman who was a good candidate for a wife and mother of the country. Moreover, he and Jiang Mingwei grew up together as childhood sweethearts. Such a person would be a prince concubine or even a queen, and will be supported by the people.
At this stage, what Xie Xuanji needs most is people’s hearts.
Jiang Mingwei in his memory, has always been like this. Because of this impression, he concealed Jiang Mingwei’s disappearance, replaced Mu Mingtang, and still made Jiang Mingwei his wife.
But in the past six months, Xie Xuanji became more and more disappointed with Jiang Mingwei. He first discovered that Jiang Mingwei would be careful, and she would be magnanimous on the surface, but actually hurt the women around him. But these are the natural thoughts of a woman after all. If Jiang Mingwei likes him, she will inevitably be jealous.
But tonight Xie Xuanji’s cognition was severely beaten. Jiang Mingwei was not only an ordinary woman, but also a woman who can pick up things and stir up trouble, and was no different from the vulgar women in his memory. In front of people, Jiang Mingwei had always been knowledgeable and reasonable, generous and sensible, but such a “virtuous helper” would ridicule Mu Mingtang strangely when there was no one behind her.
As for Mu Mingtang calling Jiang Mingwei a mad dog later, Xie Xuanji was not surprised to hear it. Maybe he knew Mu Mingtang’s character early on. It’s normal for her to mock people, but a little politeness was a surprise.
Xie Xuanji felt too broken and didn’t want to listen anymore, so he walked away as silently as when he came. After he came out, for some reason, there was sadness in his chest, so he stopped on the road and waited for Mu Mingtang.
However, Jiang Mingwei was his wife after all, although Xie Xuanji was also very disappointed with Jiang Mingwei, he could not let others bully her.
So Xie Xuanji said lightly, “If you have a grudge in the past, you can come to me and don’t embarrass Mingwei anymore. Didn’t I tell you the answer to this question before?”
“I also thought that I had already talked with you.” Xie Xuanji said, “But you have repeatedly targeted Mingwei, if it is not that you have resentment in your heart, it is for me and Mingwei is jealous, who would believe it? Mingwei is my wife, I will guarantee her dignity no matter what. If you do it on purpose to attract my attention, you don’t have to.”
Mu Mingtang chuckled and said with disgust: “Some people don’t understand other people’s words. It’s no wonder that you two become husband and wife, and you really are a good match.”
Xie Xuanji frowned, feeling that Mu Mingtang’s words seemed to mean something. Mu Mingtang just scolded Jiang Mingwei as a dog, but now he says he doesn’t understand human language, and he is a good match for Jiang Mingwei…
Does she mean that I’m also a dog?
Xie Xuanji didn’t bother about Mu Mingtang, and said, “You still said you weren’t jealous…”
“His Royal Highness King Jin, speak carefully.” Mu Mingtang forcibly interrupted Xie Xuanji before he finished speaking while looking around from the corner of her eyes. The maids were standing far away, so they would not hear what they said.
Mu Mingtang was scared that she would be discovered by others while she was talking with Xie Xuanji, but she could not tolerate his narcissistic words.
“Xie Xuanji, let me tell you straight, I really don’t like you. When I was in Jiang’s house, I just acted with you in order to win the trust of Mrs. Jiang. It seems that I only acted too much. Well, even you believe it. But I really don’t like you, from the beginning.”
Mu Mingtang’s straightforward words made Xie Xuanji speechless. He had experiences with many women so he could recognise whether her words were true or false.
So, actually she doesn’t like me.
However, Mu Mingtang thought that Xie Xuanji would not believe it, and sincerely said: “I just have the opportunity today, I will take this opportunity to say it all at once. I don’t like you now, to be precise, from the beginning. Although I really hated you when you gave me to another man, but now, I don’t even hate you anymore.”
“You and Jiang Mingwei are all burdens from the past to me.”
