I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 223
The New Year (3)
This was their first New Year after the marriage. Mu Mingtang didn’t wish for a long life and a wealth of wealth, but to spend the next New Year with Xie Xuanchen.
The firecrackers were noisy, and everyone greeted each other for the New Year, and the formation slowly faded after a while. Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen didn’t want to stay for long, so they quietly emerged from the crowd. But unexpectedly, they bumped into Jiang Mingwei and Xie Xuanji on the way.
Jiang Mingwei and Xie Xuanji were having trouble just now, so naturally, they didn’t have the heart to watch the fireworks and celebrate the New Year. So, as soon as people gathered in the middle to congratulate the emperor, they moved away from the crowd to go home.
When the two couples met, Mu Mingtang took the initiative to greet them as if nothing had happened earlier. “The brother and younger sister are here. The New Year has arrived, so I wish the two of you a long-lasting relationship and a happy life.”
Jiang Mingwei became more and more unhappy because of Mu Mingtang’s words, but she hid her dissatisfaction and greeted back without a smile, “Thank you, sister-in-law.”
“No thanks, this is my sincere wish for both of you.” Mu Mingtang rolled her eyes around the two and said, ” However, why do the brother and younger sister look unhappy? Is there a conflict?”
The atmosphere was frozen suddenly. “No, the sister-in-law is wrong.” Xie Xuanji said lightly.
“That’s good.” Mu Mingtang nodded and said, “It’s good that you don’t have conflicts. It’s not good to have conflicts during the New Year. If you are angry on the first day of the New Year, you will be angry for the whole year.”
Jiang Mingwei was offended by Mu Mingtang’s words, so she rolled her eyes to show her dissatisfaction and wanted to speak back. But Mu Mingtang didn’t let Jiang Mingwei speak, “Do you have anything to say to us? If you have any dissatisfaction, you should say it quickly, don’t hold it back. If you swallow your anger on the first day of the New Year, you will have to swallow your anger for the next year.”
Xie Xuanchen couldn’t bear it any longer and laughed softly. When Xie Xuanchen laughed, the expressions of the couple on the opposite side became even more ugly.
With a smile in his eyes, Xie Xuanchen looked down at Mu Mingtang: “Why do you say so many things?”
“It’s true. Today is the New Year, you cannot destroy the atmosphere of the New Year.” Mu Mingtang glanced at Xie Xuanchen and said seriously.
Xie Xuanchen held back his smile and turned to Xie Xuanji, “Your sister-in-law is young, lively, active, and outspoken. She said this for your own good, you should not worry.”
“Don’t dare.” Xie Xuanji lowered his head slightly, avoided Xie Xuanchen’s eyes, and said, “Brother’s words are serious, sister-in-law’s words are eloquent, this younger brother will keep it in mind and dare not to neglect.”
Jiang Mingwei also smiled reluctantly and said: “Bother, what my sister-in-law said was right. It is not appropriate to be angry in the New Year. Sister-in-law said that for our good, how can we not know the good and bad and blame the sister-in-law?”
“That’s good.” Mu Mingtang gave them a bright smile, “The younger brother and sister must speak out when you are angry, don’t hold back. Otherwise, next year also will be unhappy. Be patient and speak out to reduce your anger. If you endure it for a long time, it will harm you. Brother and sister, don’t you think so?”
Jiang Mingwei suspected that Mu Mingtang was mocking her, but in front of Xie Xuanchen, she could not scold Mu Mingtang. So when she was about to move away, a loud noise suddenly came from behind them. Mu Mingtang was startled and subconsciously ducked back.
When Xie Xuanchen saw that, he immediately reached out and embraced her. Mu Mingtang was shocked and grabbed Xie Xuanchen’s sleeve. When she looked back, she realized that it was an acrobatic artist who hung firecrackers on his body. At this moment, he turned somersaults with the crackling fire, alarming everyone around him.
When the emperor saw it, he smiled and applauded. The emperor was interested, so no one dared to disagree. Jiang Mingwei was also frightened, but she still had to laugh reluctantly.
After that, the performer did complex acrobatic movements in the open space. Although Mu Mingtang was frightened, she had to admit that this person was very talented and daring, and he looked very spectacular at the moment. Mu Mingtang hid in Xie Xuanchen’s arms and watched. “He lit firecrackers on his body and ran so fast, isn’t he afraid of being burned?”
“Maybe there is a special way.” Xie Xuanchen said.
When another firecracker was lit on the artist’s body, Xie Xuanchen felt that Mu Mingtang’s body became more tensed, so he covered Mu Mingtang’s ears and wrapped his arms around Mu Mingtang.
“I’m here, you don’t need to be afraid.”
