I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 73
Translated by ShainaG Translations
It seemed that Xie Xuanchen’s reputation was quite useful. The maids that followed her closely hesitated when Mu Mingtang stepped into his room.
The soldiers sent by the imperial court to monitor Xie Xuanchen only dared to stand by the door, let alone the maids. Mu Mingtang sat by the bed, secretly glancing at the movements outside as she wiped Xie Xuanchen’s face. The maids from the Jin Manor have decided to stay behind the door after a long discussion.
Mu Mingtang chuckled, she looked back and calmly wiped Xie Xuanchen’s arms and hands with clean water. As expected, they only dared to bully the weak, if they faced a powerful individual like Xie Xuanchen, they didn’t have the guts to do so.
There were informers all around. Mu Mingtang had a strong desire to continue to stay in the room, as she could only find peace and quiet when she was with Xie Xuanchen. For the whole afternoon, she stayed by Xie Xuanchen’s side. The medicines sent were all personally tried by Mu Mingtang first, only then she would feed it to him. After lunch, the people in Yu Lin Hall for the day felt tired, even the cicadas outside seemed to fall silent.
Mu Mingtang felt that something was wrong from behind her as she was trying to moisturize Xie Xuanchen’s lips with a wet cotton ball. She turned around, and saw that there were few mamas standing in front of the door. The head mama had a serious look on her face, she seemed hard to get along with. She bowed to Mu Mingtang, and said: “Dear Princess Qiyang, I was ordered by the Empress Dowager to take a look at Prince Qiyang .”
It was the servants from the Empress Dowager’s palace, Mu Mingtang stood up and said: “So you guys are the imperial assistants, I apologize for the cold welcome, please do come in. ”
“No, thank you. His royal highness is still resting, we don’t want to disturb him.” Xun, the imperial assistant continued and said with a cold face: “The Empress Dowager is unable to leave the palace today. She has instructed me to ask the princess a few questions on her behalf. My dear princess, please do follow me along.”
Mingtang clenched, then loosened her grip later, she then said in a calm tone: “If it was the Empress Dowager’s orders, I would definitely obey. Please wait for a moment, I want to instruct the maids on a few matters, and would follow you out in a bit.”
Mu Mingtang summoned the maids in the room, and passed the wet cotton balls to them as she said: “Feed some water to his royal highness at every hour, if his lips are dry in between, try to moisturize them with the wet cotton balls. He also has a wound on his hand, you have to change the bandage three times a day during the morning, afternoon and at night. The wounded area needs to be clean with alcohol, be careful not to touch the wound. Also, he is still highly alert even when he’s in a coma, you need to be very patient, feed him with porridge when his mouth loosens. Prepare the medicine as how the imperial physician had instructed, the medicines are outside. Be quick when you’re feeding him the medicine, don’t let the mixture turn cold.
Mu Mingtang said everything that she had in mind to the maids. The more she talked, the more she noticed that there were more things that needed to be paid attention to. However, she was afraid that the maids couldn’t perform the tasks well if she gave too many orders. In short, she was still worried.
Xun, the imperial assistant, impatiently coughed to remind her to be quick. Mu Mingtang knew she had no time left, and could only tell the maids everything she remembered at that moment, then she followed Xun to the Emperor Dowager’s manor. After walking a few steps outside, she suddenly stopped, and turned around to look at Xie Xuanchen affectionately.
She didn’t know if she had the chance to return this time.
She feared that this would be her last. As she knew, the fact that she secretly freed Xie Xuanchen was found out.
