I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 56
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanji just got to the west room when he suddenly saw women’s clothings hanging over a screen in the innermost room. Xie Xuanchen immediately realized what this meant. He quickly took a step back, lowered his gaze, and coughed loudly: “Second sister-in-law, I’ve come to pass some things to my second brother. Is it convenient for you to talk now?”
A panicked cry immediately sounded from the back of the screens: “It’s not the right time now, get out!”
Xie Xuanji was so embarrassed that he immediately turned around and shut the door after him. He really didn’t expect that Mu Mingtang would be changing. Under broad daylight, the guards were still patrolling very strictly, if this incident spreaded out, Xie Xuanji’s reputation would be ruined.
To put it bluntly, Xie Xuanji forgot that his brother was already married. Otherwise, he would never have entered without knocking and bumped into such a thing.
After Xie Xuanji opened the door and went out, Mu Mingtang poked her head out from behind the screen to make sure that he wasn’t there, she then breathed a long sigh of relief. The screen was only a barrier, and one could actually vaguely see the figures behind it. If Xie Xuanji looked closely, he could actually see two shadows behind the screen.
But Mu Mingtang believed that Xie Xuanji didn’t dare to look closely. She breathed a sigh of relief, turned back and waved to Xie Xuanchen: “The coast is clear, he didn’t dare to come in. You can come out now.”
Mu Mingtang realized that those were the regular sentences that a person that was cheating would say, it was almost like they were caught in action. The expression on Xie Xuanchen’s face was also weird, he closed his eyes and avoided looking at her. Mu Mingtang was embarrassed for a moment but was soon okay with it, her reputation didn’t matter, the most important thing was to solve the problem.
Mu Mingtang helped Xie Xuanchen to lie back on the bed. Mu Mingtang pointed to the dark iron cuffs and asked, “What do we do with them?”
“Put them back on me, and cover them with the blanket. I dare you that he won’t dare to come near.”
“Okay.” Mu Mingtang used all her might, but it was taken over by Xie Xuanchen in an instant. The two of them arranged the scene, and finally Mu Mingtang covered Xie Xuanchen with a blanket. After destroying the traces of their activity, she ran out, but she thought of something again, turned back and kept away that previous top that was hanging on the screen, she then randomly took a piece of clothing from the box which was piled up on a round stool.
Xie Xuanji stood outside the door for a long time, he didn’t know if it was his illusion, but he felt that Mu Mingtang was taking way too long to change. However, he couldn’t knock on the door to ask her to hurry, so he waited patiently.
After a while, the door cracked open slightly, Mu Mingtang’s face appeared at the door, her expression was very cold: “Prince Jin even scolded me a few days ago, what about now, where is your etiquette and manners?”
Xie Xuanji was embarrassed, but on these matters, men would always be the one in the wrong. Xie Xuanji apologized and said, “I made a mistake, please forgive me.”
“I’ll let go of this today, what if you forget to knock in the future, what will happen then?”
“I won’t.” Xie Xuanji felt extremely ashamed. After this time, he also noticed the difference between his brother being married and being single. When Xie Xuanchen wasn’t in a coma before, the two brothers weren’t married yet, and Xie Xuanji walked in as he pleased.
