I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 45
Translated by ShainaG Translations
In fact, Xie Xuanji slightly regrets it now. If he went to the Qiyang manor during another day, that would have been the best, then he would now get to report about this freely. In order to please the emperor, he set up his manor next to the Qiyang manor. No matter what he said to the others, Xie Xuanji still felt slightly scared at heart.
A tiger was tied to the side of the bed, who would be at ease? Xie Xuanji also wanted to report about Xie Xuanchen waking up, and then either they add the dosage to his medicine or increase manpower, in short, they would ensure the safety of the Jin manor. However, the problem was that once Xie Xuanji told the emperor that Xie Xuanchen was awake, it meant that his whereabouts was then exposed. How would Xie Xuanji explain to the emperor and the many imperial physicians that he appeared in the Qiyang manor, and when he was talking to the Princess of Qiyang, he witnessed Xie Xuanchen wake up with his own eyes?
If he insisted that it was a coincidence, Xie Xuanji, himself too wouldn’t believe it.
He couldn’t justify himself, so he could only cover the whole thing up. Fortunately, Xie Xuanchen fainted after waking up, and he wouldn’t be caught at the scene. As for Mu Mingtang……Xie Xuanji didn’t pay too much attention to her, she was only a girl, what tricks would she be able to play on him anyways.
Xie Xuanji’s feelings for Mu Mingtang were actually very simple. He wasn’t fond of this low-born and vulgar substitute. If it weren’t for the purpose to build up his affectionate personality, win over the emperor and also Jiang Honghao in the process, Xie Xuanji would never accept such a barbaric fake princess. However, Mu Mingtang was actually quite pretty, and she had a deep affection for him, no man would reject a beauty that offered herself to him. His princess consort should of course be a lady like Jiang Mingwei, on the other hand, she was nothing but a suit and it’s okay to keep her in the manor next to his, he’ll get to try something fresh once in a while.
They both were deep in thought as they walked in silence. When they got to the study, his confidant asked: “Prince Jin, the Prince of Qiyang used to be god-like, and he had lots of tricks and strategies up his sleeves. Although he was in a coma for a long time, he should not be underestimated. Are you sure that he’s still unconscious now?”
Xie Xuanji also thought about this question. After he walked to the desk, he thought about it, and said, “I saw him vomit blood and pass out with my own eyes, that couldn’t be fake. Even if he could fake himself passing out, but he couldn’t fake spitting out blood. I saw it clearly with my own two eyes, the blood he spat out was bright red.”
Vomiting blood was not a good sign, let alone it was bright red blood. The confidant felt slightly, but……
“Prince Jin, what if?”
“There will be no what if.” Xie Xuanji said disdainfully, “Even if he acted until that extent, the iron chain made of black iron isn’t fake. Even if he wakes up, he can’t get rid of that black iron chain, it’ll only be a waste of his energy if he tries. “
Yes, that black iron chain. The confidant thought of the very heavy chain, and he finally felt more calm. That pair of handcuffs were requested by the first emperor, Xie Yi. At that time, Xie Xuanchen’s lethality was much greater than it is now. No one could contain him. Xie Yi was also fuming with anger, hence, he ordered for Xie Xuanchen to be locked up. Later Xie Rui ascended the throne, using Xie Yi’s death as a shield, Xie Xuanchen was locked up further, and he also secretly quietly strengthened the security measures quite a few times.
That black iron chain was the iron cage that locked the tiger away, no one dared to bear the consequences of letting the tiger out of the cage. The confidant sighed, and said: “With that black iron chain in place, we will be at peace. I’m just hoping that the Prince of Qiyang will stay put, and not go crazy again.”
