I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 222
The New Year (2)
Mu Mingtang was stunned. Whether it was because of alcohol or not, she could not react for a long time. Fortunately, the awkward situation did not last long as Xie Xuanchen quickly picked up the wine cup in front of him.
Hey, that is my wine cup.
Mu Mingtang reacted suddenly and quickly grabbed Xie Xuanchen’s wrist to prevent him from drinking from her cup. Xie Xuanchen’s arm was already raised in the air; however, when Mu Mingtang suddenly pulled his hand, the wine at the surface of the cup did not even shake.
Mu Mingtang stared at him with wide eyes, and Xie Xuanchen looked back calmly. She became red with embarrassment. “Hey, what are you doing?”
“You have made a toast, so I’m respecting you. I will drink it all. You have used my cup, so I have no choice but to use yours. Why is there a problem? Is it bothering you?” Xie Xuanchen asked her.
“But…” Mu Mingtang’s face was already blushing, not knowing whether it was because of embarrassment or drunkenness, “I used it just now, then you use it now, that’s not…”
This time Xie Xuanchen glanced at her with a bewildering smile, raised his head, and drank the whole cup. He put down the cup, looked at Mu Mingtang’s unbelievable eyes, and said, “I’ve used it before, but this time? Besides..” Xie Xuanchen chuckled and gave Mu Mingtang a playful smile, “I just use it. What can you do?”
Mu Mingtang pursed her lips, and although she tried her best to appear calm, her ears were still quietly red. However, she was dizzy and embarrassed, so she no longer had time to pay attention to the other side. How could she still remember that the couple on the opposite side were in a cold war, and the reason was still related to her.? She was too embarrassed to talk to Xie Xuanchen, so she was thinking about what to do. Fortunately, the eunuch came and reminded everyone that the emperor and queen were back.
It was time to set off fireworks and firecrackers. All the things for lit fireworks were arranged outside the palace, so the emperor led the crowd to outside to watch the fireworks. Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang also followed the crowd to watch the fireworks.
Merging into the crowd, Mu Mingtang undoubtedly breathed a sigh of relief quietly. Fortunately, I don’t have to be alone with Xie Xuanchen anymore. She thought.
With Xie Xuanchen’s present, everyone naturally scrambled to avoid him. In the end, the emperor stood in the middle, with Xie Xuanchen and Mu Mingtang a little off, and then the princes and ministers, the queen, and concubines stood on the other side of the emperor.
To please the masters, the eunuchs brought fancy fireworks and firecrackers early in the morning. Fire sparks bloomed in the night sky like peacocks, fire trees, and silver flowers. When the auspicious time of the arrival of the New year came, the whole city echoed with the sounds of drums and firecrackers.
Firecrackers blared in unison, and the flames blared, blocking the whole city. The largest firecracker made more than 120 sounds. At this time, the people in the palace cupped their hands to congratulate each other, and many people congratulated the emperor in unison: “Your Majesty’s longevity, happiness, and longevity.”
The atmosphere of the New Year enveloped the whole city, Mu Mingtang forgot the embarrassment just a moment ago, and subconsciously pulled Xie Xuanchen’s sleeves. The sound of firecrackers almost overwhelmed everything. Xie Xuanchen had to lean over in front of Mu Mingtang to hear what she was saying: “Your Highness, Happy New Year.”
Xie Xuanchen smiled, looked back at her with eyes filled with love, and said, “You too, Happy New Year.”
When Xie Xuanchen looked at Mu Mingtang, the two of them seemed to be alone in the world, with only each other beside each other. Even the hustle and bustle around them didn’t bother them a bit.
Xie Xuanchen stood sideways, and colorful fireworks rose from behind him, exploded, and bloomed, illuminating his profile face from time to time, and the tear mole became more and more brilliant against the firelight.
It was as if heaven’s God had fallen into the world by mistake.
Mu Mingtang stared at him embarrassedly, and couldn’t help but smile. Festivals were never the most important, it was just a certain day of the year. Only the people around us really give unique meaning to festivals.
