I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 267
When Xie Xuanchen heard the words ‘Jinger elixir’, his face darkened, and he hesitated a bit before responding, “Jinger elixir… even if we carry it with us, it’s worthless.”
Puzzled, Mu Mingtang gave her husband an incredulous look, “What do you mean by that?”
“Although this medicine was created especially for me, it did not work completely and it has serious side effects. It is true that this medication is effective in the beginning, but when the next time my illness relapses, it will be more violent than the previous time. Moreover, if I use it for a long time, I will be addicted to it and my body would not function without taking them. This is the biggest side effect of Jinger elixir.”
After Mu Mingtang heard the truth behind the pills, she was extremely taken aback because she did not know that the side effects of taking Jinger elixir were that shocking.
In other words, Jinger elixir only fueled the flames and didn’t genuinely treat the illness. The fact that this medicine was addicting made things even more terrifying. Even if you try to toss it away later, it wouldn’t work because the onset would get worse as you take it more often.
Mu Mingtang was at a loss and she could not utter a word for a while. “Then what about the elixir that I gave you last time? Wouldn’t it be useless and backfire?”
Mu Mingtang swept her gaze around them to see whether there was anyone eavesdropping and quietly whispered to Xie Xuanchen.
As Mu Mingtang questioned Xie Xuanchen, she came to a realisation about a few things she previously had doubts about.
‘No wonder Xie Xuanchen threw those Jinger elixirs in the warehouse far away from the chambers and let them collect the duct there. What more, Xie Xuanji also didn’t stop me at all when I came back with the medicine in my hands and fed it to Xie Xuanchen. Oh, God… they actually knew that medication is…’
As Mu Mingtang pieced together more and more details, her tone became even more frustrated: “I should have thought of it. If the treatment was really effective, your condition wouldn’t be that bad and you would have been cured long ago. However, there was no improvement, and it only became worse with time. How could they… it was my fault for letting you take such useless medicine that just worsened the situation.”
The facial expression of Xie Xuanchen changed, and he seemed a little incensed. “What does my condition worsening have anything to do with you? You knew nothing about the situation, but I knew it clearly. It was I who decided to take the medicine. I knew there was a problem with Jinger pills before, and it makes no difference if it is taken more or less.”
Although he was a little frustrated, after seeing Mu Mingtang’s worried face, his facial features softened, as he patted Mu Mingtang’s head slightly to comfort her. “Don’t think too much about this matter. You’ve already helped a lot just by standing here by my side.”
These words did not comfort Mu Mingtang. She was still depressed, and she didn’t even care about Xie Xuanchen patting her head. “Then why didn’t you tell me? It’s hard to say in front of everyone, but you could have told me this in private. Why did you still take Jinger elixir?”
“What’s the problem?” Xie Xuanchen said indifferently. “Even the medicine we usually take has a certain amount of poison in it, and even though we know it, we still take it like nothing is wrong with it, so what about a pill with some side effects?”
His tone was so casual that Mu Mingtang was stunned for a moment. She looked up, her pupils dilated slightly: “You…” She suddenly couldn’t utter the rest of the words.
Puzzled, Xie Xuanchen looked down at speechless Mu Mingtang. “What’s wrong?”
Spring was in full bloom in the garden, with vibrant, fresh colours spread over everywhere, giving their surroundings an impactful visual.
Mu Mingtang felt that Xie Xuanchen was like a combination of an immortal and a demon in this garden full of colours.
Although he has an excessively attractive appearance, his eyes were constantly filled with the desire to kill. Therefore, when others saw him, they would be scared away by his fame and the killing intent in his eyes, but at this moment, all the murderous intent and defenses had been removed from his eyes. They were filled with clarity of any impurities and pure black, like obsidian, soaked in ice water, which was a shockingly beautiful sight.
There was a slightly visible mole under his right eye even further adding an extra point of devilish charm to his beauty. With such a face, and that bearing, he was no less than a calamity himself.
