I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 72
Translated by ShainaG Translations
When Mu MingTang went back to her small room, she was followed by four female servants. Two of them were dowry maids from the Jiang family, and the other two were transferred from the Jin Manor. Mu MingTang pretended like she knew nothing, and continued on with her things. During that period, the maids had offered to help her change several times, but were all refused by Mu MingTang.
What a joke, the two were under Madam Jiang, and another two were under Xie Xuanji, she didn’t dare to instruct either one. Initially, she thought they would stop after she went to bed. However, she had fairly underestimated the maids that were trained in the capital. The maids from Jin Manor set the bedding and worked in shifts. One would sleep on the floor and another would sit on the stool and stare at Mu Mingtang.
In short, they were instructed to keep an eye on her at all times.
Mu Mingtang felt depressed when she closed her eyes. She even thought to herself, she might as well sleep by Xie Xuanchen’s. At least, no one would dare to stay around him.
The next morning, when Mu Mingtang woke up, she, as usual, dressed and cleaned herself. The maids from the Jin Manor approached and took over the napkin in her hands. One of them brought over some water, and another squeezed the water out of the napkin. Mu Mingtang had no choice but to forcefully accept the two maids’ service.
After rinsing herself, the maid brought over the mirror and tied up her hair. Mu Mingtang’s dressing table was in Xie Xuancheng’s room. As there were guards outside, it was inconvenient for her to head out without dressing her hair. Hence, the manor’s maid had no choice but to comb Mu Mingtang’s hair with what she had on hand.
“Sorry for the poor skills, do please forgive me, my dearest princess.”
How is this poor…… Mu Mingtang stretched out her hand and touched her hair, she held back her thoughts without saying a single word. She thought she had experienced the luxurious life of the rich families in the capital when she was with the Jin family for one year. Now thinking back about it, how differently the adopted and biological kid was treated, of course there was also a difference between living in the official’s residence and the manor.
Mu Mingtang thought this was over, and couldn’t wait to finally stand up, said: “I’m already ready, you are welcome to do your own thing.”
“My dear princess, our only duty is to serve you.”
Mu Mingtang furrowed her brows: “Is it possible that…..both of you are going to follow me around for the whole day?”
“Dear princess, your royal self is our utmost priority, we must ensure that you’re safe. Naturally, there must always be people around.”
Previously, Mu Mingtang was just a princess in name. Although having the title of a princess, she could walk around freely. However, apart from her meals being much more luxurious, she felt just like a normal folk. When she was still in the Mu Family, she stayed in her room for the whole day and had the freedom to do anything she wanted. Marrying into the Qiyang Manor, all seemed the same, it’s just that there was another person staying by her side.
Now Mu Mingtang knew, it’s not that there was nothing different, it’s just that no one cared about her. The real princess would have at least 20 to 30 people around her every time she travelled, and would have 10 other maids around to specifically serve her. In comparison, she only had 4 people, which were transferred from somewhere else for the time being.
She had no idea what the high and mighty were thinking, they suddenly found her important. Having been served by someone abruptly, made Mu Mingtang feel uncomfortable.
Her room was overly small. She didn’t feel that when she was living alone, but now, there were four more people with her, the place was too narrow to fit them all. Mu Mingtang, trying to get rid of the maids, went to visit Xie Xuanchen.
