I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 43
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Mu Mingtang answered with a hum, picked up the piece of cloth and wiped away her tears, as her cries slowly softened. After she came back to her senses, she realized that she had been crying in front of Xie Xuanchen for a long time. She felt both awkward and embarrassed, she then stood up and looked out, “Why haven’t the doctors come yet?”
“The imperial physician?” Xie Xuanchen laughed, as he leaned back, and said softly, “They won’t come.”
“However, Prince Jin clearly said……”
“You also said that he walked out from here. Did he dare to tell you what he was doing in Yu Lin Hall?”
Mu Mingtang was speechless, as she gave it some thought, it made sense. Xie Xuanchen seemed to view his life very indifferently. He leaned on the bed frame with his eyes half-closed: “About today, it stays between us, the emperor and the imperial physician will definitely not know that I woke up. However, it’s a good thing too, I can quietly recover for a few days, otherwise, as soon as those bastards appear, I’ll just want to twist off their necks.”
Mu Mingtang shuddered silently when she thought of Xie Xuanchen’s extraordinary strength. He said twist off, it may really be in a literal sense, twist off.
At first, Mu Mingtang felt that the guards outside were cowardly making a fuss, and Prince Qiyang wasn’t a devil, how could he be so terrifying. Now that she thought about it, Prince Qiyang was indeed not a devil, the devils weren’t as scary as him.
Mu Mingtang watched him close his eyes, he looked extremely exhausted, and she gently supported him to lie down, she then quietly put down the bed net and went out. Mu Mingtang took two steps and looked back at Xie Xuanchen. His side profile looked somewhat a blur, but it made him look even more holy and innocent.
But such a person was extraordinarily lethal.
No wonder, they won every battle after he joined the army, he was invincible and was known as the walking battle flag; no wonder that after he went into insanity, the court felt like they were met with a big enemy, and had sent so many soldiers to guard over him. Not to mention, they also tailored a heavy and mysterious chain to restrict his every move.
Mu Mingtang sighed and walked out softly.
She didn’t know how long Xie Xuanchen would stay conscious this time. However, according to Mu Mingtang’s short and objective judgment, she felt that Xie Xuanchen wasn’t a ruthless killer like what he was rumored to be, nor was he completely controlled by his killing intent, and had gone crazy.
Perhaps, that year when he slaughtered his own people, there was a hidden secret to it.
However, no matter how she put it, Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen were tied to the same boat. The emperor expected him to die, Xie Xuanji expected him to die, even the sergeants guarding outside also wanted him to die. Only Mu Mingtang wanted him to live a long life. Solely based on this point, Mu Mingtang will do her best to make him recover as soon as possible.
The most urgent task now was to replenish his body, at least to let him regain the strength to sit up. The second is to break free from the mysterious iron chain so that he could move freely.
A prideful person like Xie Xuanchen would rather die than live with such a chain.
Another good thing about Xie Xuanchen waking up is that he could finally eat.
At night, Mu Mingtang tried to wake him up, and she really succeeded. Mu Mingtang was overjoyed and immediately brought her own food to him and fed it to Xie Xuanchen.
When she ordered her food yesterday, she didn’t expect Xie Xuanchen to wake up, so today’s dishes weren’t very suitable for patients. But eating fresh vegetables was still better than taking liquid food. When Mu Mingtang fed Xie Xuanchen, she nagged: “My lord, although the manor belongs to you, but now, you do have to rely on my share for food. Fortunately, I deliberately pretended to be a big eater a few days ago. So now, even if the leftovers have lessened, the people outside won’t be too surprised by it.”
Xie Xuanchen didn’t speak. Mu Mingtang continued on to nag: “Speaking of which, I’ve to find a way to bribe the guards tomorrow. Thanks to the huge dowry I brought along with me, I can fully support you, otherwise I really can’t stand to afford this form of exchange.”
Xie Xuanchen’s veins started to pop out of his forehead, he looked up and glanced at her coldly: “Shut up.”
If he didn’t mention it, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t remember. He still clearly remembers Mu Mingtang secretly calling him a kept man, he’ll be the bigger person and forgive her about it, isn’t she now just being too much?
