I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 79
Translated by ShainaG Translations
I’ll take you home.
The bowl slammed on the ground and made a muffled sound, the black concoction in the bowl splattered all over the floor. The maid immediately knelt down and pleaded guilty, she was too scared to even raise her head. The female official, Xiang Nanchun who had just been transferred from the palace to Qiyang Manor as the supervisor, heard the noise and hurried over. She first saw the shivering maid lying on the ground, with the medicine splashed all over the floor, she then slowly moved her gaze upwards, only to look over at the bed that was half covered by the screen and saw Xie Xuanchen sitting upwards.
When Xiang Nanchun saw this scene, she understood what had happened. Without saying anything, she knelt on the ground as she slightly lifted her skirt, bowed respectfully and said: “It’s the maid’s first time. How clumsy of her and she even disturbed you. Please forgive her, my lord.”
Xie Xuanchen had already sat up, his gaze swept over to these strange women, and he looked around the hall which obviously had more people than before, and smiled for no reason.
In the past, Mu Mingtang would definitely run over the moment she heard a sound. Now, his movement was so loud, and it had already been quite some time, she hasn’t appeared yet.
Probably, she won’t show up.
The person at the door was still kneeling on the ground, he didn’t speak, so no one dared to get up. Xie Xuanchen didn’t know if it was his illusion, but he felt that these women were being way too afraid of him. Even though women are usually quite afraid of him, they shouldn’t panic like that the moment he wakes up.
Xie Xuanchen didn’t say much, and said softly: “Since it’s the first time, get up.”
Xiang Nanchun kowtow deeply to the ground: “Thank you, Lord.”
Then Xiang Nanchun secretly pinched the maid and signaled her to excuse herself out of the room. Soon after, a maid served him some hot medicine soup, and another team of maids followed behind, and quietly cleaned up the mess on the ground.
Xiang Nanchun tasted the bowl of medicine right in front of Xie Xuanchen. After a while, nothing abnormal happened, so she asked the maid to bring the medicine bowl up: “Master, please drink the medicine.”
Xie Xuanchen’s gaze moved down and stopped on the medicine, he didn’t speak for a long time. The maid that was holding the bowl of medicine began to tremble, the more she trembled, the more obvious it was, and there were even ripples forming on the surface of the soup.
Xiang Nanchun waited calmly for a long time, and she finally couldn’t help it, she tried to remind him: “My Royal Highness of Qiyang, it’s time to take your medicine……”
Xie Xuanchen glanced over, and Xiang Nanchun suddenly didn’t dare to speak. Xie Xuanchen didn’t care about answering, and asked, “What time is it?”
“To inform the prince it’s somewhere between 7pm to 9pm.”
“What’s the date?”
“September 14.” Xie Xuanchen repeated it slowly, as if there was something special about this day. At this moment, there were many people standing in the room, let alone how many pairs of ears were listening to him outside, but the room was completely silent, everyone didn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
Everyone quickly thought in their hearts, what was special about September 14th, but Xie Xuanchen was actually thinking, today was September 14th, he had been in a coma for five days. Where has Mu Mingtang been these five days?
The moment Mu Mingtang learned that he had woken up, it was impossible for her to not show up, so it seemed that there was only one possibility.
Xie Xuanchen said nothing, but rushed to the maid and said, “Bring the medicine.”
The maid passed him the medicine as she trembled, Xie Xuanchen sneered when he saw something. Xie Rui really guarded against him. The spoon given to drink the medicine was made of wood. Was he afraid that porcelain or silver made spoons would become a weapon in his hands?
He underestimated him, as long as he wanted to, what can’t be his weapon?
Xie Xuanchen suddenly acted very violently, he grabbed the wooden spoon from the maid’s hand and broke it in half, the broken spoon formed a sharp tip. At this time, the maid was still raising her hands in a daze, the medicine bowl fell to the ground, and it was still spinning around.
The spike in Xie Xuanchen’s hand had already touched the maid’s throat: “Where is she?”
The maid finally reacted as she trembled like a sieve: “I……I don’t know who you’re asking for.”
Xiang Nanchun didn’t expect this to happen. At this moment, she only reacted and knelt down as she said, “We just came over, so we really don’t know who your majesty is for. Please, for the emperor’s sake, please spare us.”
