I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 44
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Taking care of him in secret
Today was also the day where she secretly took care of someone in her room.
The Jin Manor.
Xie Xuanji walked in the manor, and his confidant beside him asked worriedly: “My lord, regarding the prince of Qiyang waking up……should we report this to the emperor?”
If it was on a normal basis, Xie Xuanji would have reported about this long ago, but this time……Xie Xuanchen would stir up a commotion everytime he woke up, if he reported about this, he would have startled everyone in the imperial court, when the emperor asked him further, how would he explain why he was alone in Yu Lin Hall?
After all, he would seem rather suspicious, it was tough for him to explain himself. Xie Xuanji gave a low cough and said, “Second brother fainted after only waking up for a slight moment, this will only increase the emperor’s worries, we should wait until his condition stabilizes, then we’ll report it to the palace.”
His confidant frowned: “However, the Prince of Qiyang was born with supernatural powers and extraordinary force, along with this sensitive period of time. If you hide something and not report it, if you missed the timing, wouldn’t it be impossible for you to explain yourself?”
“No.” Xie Xuanji said confidently, “He was already exhausted after only waking up for a slight moment, he even vomited blood before he fainted. His body is beginning to deteriorate since the beginning of the year. Waking up once and not waking up at all, this will not affect the final result. These trivial matters, there is no need to disturb my father for this.”
The Prince of Jin already said so, even if his confidant was still worried, he shouldn’t comment further on this anymore. Xie Xuanchen was able to make great contributions to the founding emperors of the two dynasties, he shouldn’t be taken lightly. Xie Xuanchen was born with supernatural powers. He could draw a bow of 20 stones at the age of fifteen and immediately use six stones. Someone once bet on whether Xie Xuanchen could lift a 100kg iron spear. Xie Xuanchen said that it was too light upon hearing him, he carried a 200kg iron spear in front of everyone, he gave off a rather majestic aura when he was doing this.
Powerful strength means crushing the opponent. When his strength reaches a certain level, no skill would even be required, and the opponent can be killed by his weight alone. Xie Xuanchen was really strong, he had been in the army camps since he was a child, and he learned how to use all the eighteen weapons. With him in front of the army formation, he was the destructive weapon.
If he was just a soldier or a martial artist, the court wouldn’t be as worried, but he was also very smart, thus making him a general with many rare talents. Xie Xuanchen joined the army at the age of fifteen, and had repeatedly won battles even if he was outnumbered. The Emperor Gong of the later Jin Dynasty, Emperor Zhouai, and Emperor Nantang all died in his hands. Xie Rui couldn’t help but feel afraid. If Xie Xuanchen was sober, even if Xie Xuanchen let out the throne, Xie Rui wouldn’t dare to take it.
Xie Xuanchen had become one of the emperor’s worries. If there was any slight movement in the Qiyang manor, the emperor would have a hard time sleeping for the next few days. Such a big matter about Xie Xuanchen waking up, and the Prince of Jin wanting to stay quiet about it, how could he not be worried?
However, it’s a matter of loyalty, the confidant accepted the Prince of Jin’s money, how could he disobey his intentions. The reason why he didn’t want to report about this, his confidant could already guess the reason.
Xie Xuanji came out of the Qiyang manor. Apart from the guards, the princess was the only other living person in the Qiyang manor. What the Prince of Jin was up to today, his confidant knew exactly.
It isn’t easy to word such a matter, it was a taboo to say too much about it. Therefore, the Prince of Jin insisted on keeping it a secret, and after his confidant had tried to persuade him, he knew it was time for him to shut up.
