I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 46
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanji sneered: “It’s impossible for him to break free. The keys are divided into two, one is with me and the other was taken by my father. As long as he doesn’t get the both keys, he can’t open the chain. Unless he breaks his hands and feet, Otherwise it’ll not be possible to escape.”
Outside the Yu Lin Hall, the coast wasn’t cleared yet, and the guards were still guarding the premises tightly. Mu Mingtang opened the door to take her food, and saw soldiers in heavy armor outside the corridors patrolling from day until night, they didn’t even loosen their guard for a moment. The chief guard also guarded the gates and saw that Mu Mingtang had come out, he then asked: “My greetings to the princess. Princess, how is the Prince of Qiyang doing, is he showing any signs of waking up?”
Mu Mingtang shook his head and sighed softly: “No. He vomited blood and fell back into a coma. He is still asleep now.”
The chief guard didn’t know whether he was relieved or even more tense. He clenched his fists and said, “Hopefully you’ll be able to pay more attention to him. As long as there is the slightest of movement, you should immediately come out and tell me about it. Don’t underestimate the danger that you might be in.”
“Okay, I understand.” After Mu Mingtang finished speaking, she gloomily walked back in with her food container. After closing the door, Mu Mingtang quietly rested against the door. After listening for a long time, she made sure that the outside world wasn’t suspicious of anything, then she only softly slipped back to the bedroom like a thief.
“My lord, I’m back.” Mu Mingtang walked into the West Hall and whispered, “Don’t worry, they didn’t find out!”
Mu Mingtang felt that something was strange: “Why does it feel like I’m hiding someone in my house? Avoiding the other’s suspicion, being sneaky about it, I’m being even more careful than when I’m cheating.”
Xie Xuanchen was studying the handcuffs. At first, he was too lazy to pay attention to her. Upon hearing the words “hiding” and “cheating” , the veins on his hands popped up, and he couldn’t help but say: “Do you know how to talk to someone?”
“I’m not wrong.” Mu Mingtang said as she brought out the food in the food container, “Look, even the food has to be secretly delivered. In the past, when the husband next door cheated on his wife, he was also this way.”
Xie Xuanchen got angry and slammed the iron chain which made a clattering sound. Mu Mingtang was taken aback, and hurriedly shushed him: “Hush, don’t make any noise!”
Xie Xuanchen really stopped making any noise. The two of them were silent for a long time. Mu Mingtang was still listening beside the window. After seeing that the people outside hadn’t noticed, she let out a long sigh of relief: “I was scared to death. It’s not something ordinary people do. I’ll really feel so terrified if you do this again for a few times.”
Xie Xuanchen held it back this time. A great man knows when to yield and when not to, he didn’t care much about this stigma around his name. After Xie Xuanchen thought about it, he found that something was wrong, aren’t they legally married, why did he think in the direction of cheating and being an adulterer?
Mu Mingtang didn’t notice Xie Xuanchen’s weird and complicated thoughts. She scooped Xie Xuanchen some food and brought it to the bed. He just woke up, Mu Mingtang didn’t dare to let him eat food that was too greasy, so when she ordered her food, she ordered tofu and chicken that was both nourishing and easy to digest. She brought it over to feed Xie Xuanchen, Xie Xuanchen’s face stiffened, he seemed reluctant to let her do so.
Mu Mingtang knew what he was thinking from the look on his face. She was very patient and said, “My lord, you have a chain on your hands. It’ll make a sound if you move, just let me feed you.”
He knows that he shouldn’t be arrogant when he was asking her for help. Xie Xuanchen could only accept the fact that he had to be spoon fed. Fortunately, Mu Mingtang was very skillful. He could get a mouthful as soon as he lowered his head. The portions she gave him weren’t too big nor too small, it fit just right in his mouth.
