I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 47
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Regardless of everything else, it’s really comfortable to eat like this……Xie Xuanchen swallowed the food and asked, “You know quite a lot of things, where did you learn it from?”
“Do you need to learn this?” Mu Mingtang laughed. “Under the care of your parents, you naturally won’t learn anything. If you’ve been out in the world, less than a year, you’ll learn everything.”
After Mu Mingtang fed him, she gave him some water and then started to eat her own portion. Mu Mingtang ate even more than Xie Xuanchen, Xie Xuanchen just woke up and he still needed some time to sober up. At the moment, he had nothing to do, so he could only watch Mu Mingtang eat.
Mu Mingtang looked very serious when she was eating, she pursed her lips while chewing, she was trying not to make any noise or appear to be flustered. Her cheeks were bulging like a chipmunk. Her expression when she ate looked rather delicate, but she was actually very fast. She didn’t eat in big bites, but was fast and she wasn’t picky in her food. At first glance, her eating habits must have been trained during her troubled times. Those spoiled ladies in the capital, they’re so picky about their food and they’ll complain about everything, if they waited for them to finish their meal, the capital would’ve long fallen in the hands of their enemies.
Xie Xuanchen’s eating habits were similar to Mu Mingtang. On the battlefield, eating fast was a soldier’s must have skill, as for picky eaters…… If his subordinates dared to be picky, Xie Xuanchen would personally beat that person to death.
Xie Xuanchen looked for a while, and finally noticed one thing. The bowl in Mu Mingtang’s hand looked rather familiar?
In order to prevent suspicion from the outside, the two of them could only use one bowl, otherwise two bowls would be too obvious. Xie Xuanchen suddenly felt embarrassed, he closed his eyes and didn’t look at her anymore.
Mu Mingtang was very focused when she was eating, and she didn’t notice if anyone was watching her. When she was still fleeing, she learnt that she had to eat quickly when she had the chance to. If she looked around, her food might be snatched away. After she finished eating, she cleaned up the dishes and noticed that Xie Xuanchen was being awfully quiet. She was reminded of his lack of energy again, so she didn’t think much about it, and went out as she carried the food box in hand.
Mu Mingtang placed the food container outside, and the soldiers on patrol didn’t raise suspicion. She cheered quietly in her heart. Today was also the day where she secretly took care of someone in her room..
Mu Mingtang walked back groaning and found that Xie Xuanchen was looking down again to study the dark iron chains. Mu Mingtang now knew about the origin of these chains, upon seeing this scene, she was undoubtedly very sad.
Who would have thought that this was Xie Xuanchen’s father, the first emperor, Xie Yi personally ordered them to lock away Xie Xuanchen. When Xie Yi gave the order, he said that no one can free Xie Xuanchen without his verbal permission. However, not long after, Xie Yi died.
His verbal permission was naturally impossible to get.
Mu Mingtang’s heart ached at this scene, the physical damage that these chains brought to Xie Xuanchen was secondary, but the mental damage that was brought upon him was the main point.
This dark iron chain was constantly reminding him that he is no longer a respected and honourable general, but a sinner who slaughtered his comrades and innocent people.
The hero of war became the sinner of peace.
Mu Mingtang tried her best to pretend that she hadn’t noticed anything, she walked up to him, and said gently: “My lord, I met a lot of strange people during my journey, one of them was a thief, his skills of opening locks were handed down by his ancestors. I learned from him for a period of time, should I give it a try?”
