I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 80
Translated by ShainaG Translations
The guards outside the door silently grasped the sheath’s of their swords, getting ready to draw their swords at any moment now. Xie Xuanchen sneered, he swung his wrists with much force, and he threw the wooden tip to the ground, it brushed past Xiang Nanchun’s sleeves and nailed into the ground. Xiang Nanchun’s vision turned into a blur, her sleeves were nailed to the ground, and the maid beside her yelled, Xiang Nanchun’s legs softened instantly.
The floor tiles were laid with bricks underneath. A piece of wood that was just randomly flung could actually pierce through these floor tiles.
“You don’t know who I’m asking for?” Xie Xuanchen completely restrained his smile. His complexion didn’t look very good right now. His tear mole was reflected on his pale and thin face, which made him look dark and aggressive, “Now do you know?”
This time, not only was the female officer’s legs weak, but the guards outside were terrified. They thought that this scene might happen when they were preparing the tableware, so they deliberately removed all the dangerous items such as porcelain bowls and silver bowls, and even the spoons were deliberately made blunt. Unexpectedly, in Xie Xuanchen’s hands, the spoon only needed to be broken. With the strength of his bare hands, it became a weapon that could smash floor tiles and kill.
What’s more frightening is that this was just his weaker state.
Xiang Nanchun was so frightened, she felt weak, and quickly said: “The maids and I are only responsible for internal affairs, I really don’t know the whereabouts of the princess. Five days ago, Sun, the female official from the internal servant bureau summoned the princess away. The princess and her along with her officials have all been living in the temple. I’ve never been in contact with matters there, I don’t know anything that is happening there.”
Officials from the internal servant bureau are the ones who serve the Empress Dowager. Xie Xuanchen sneered, propped up, he forced himself to stand up and staggered his way out.
As Xie Xuanchen walked, no one dared to help him, all of them knelt on the ground, they waited without raising their heads. After Xie Xuanchen walked out, the maid quietly asked Xiang Nanchun: “Mama Xiang, the prince has gone to the temple, should we send someone to inform the Sun female official?”
Xiang Nanchun furrowed her eyebrows for a long time, and finally shook her head slowly: “It’s too late. Just do your own job, don’t do unnecessary things. We can’t afford to be involved with the higher level officials.”
Xie Xuanchen almost forgot that there was still such a place in his manor. In fact, the temple wasn’t far from Yu Lin Hall. The eaves in front of Yu Lin Hall were connected to two temples. The one on the left is called Ri Si Study and the one on the right is called Yun Rui Study. After passing through Yun Rui Study, he’ll reach the temple after walking straight for a bit more.
But the temple, as the name suggests, was extremely quiet and gloomy. When he approached, there was a black shadow whirling outside the temple, the bamboo leaves rustled. Amongst the bamboo field, everything was pitch black, only one house was lit.
Numerous guards and maids followed behind him. With the sudden incident, they wanted to report this, but Xie Xuanchen stood in front, and no one dared to try to report. Xie Xuanchen approached silently, the people inside were still talking.
Xie Xuanchen vaguely heard that they were choosing something. Whatever Mu Mingtang said, the other woman’s voice seemed to find it a pity, and she asked, “Princess Mu, do you really choose this? You’re so beautiful and your skin looks so delicate. If we poke the needles in, I’m afraid it’ll hurt.”
Poke it in? When Xie Xuanchen heard her from outside, he raised his eyebrows and opened the door with a bang: “What do you want her to choose?”
Sun official was pulling out the thinnest needle from the needle pouch. There were rules for literally everything in the palace, even for the needles. From thin to thick, from short to long, the order shouldn’t be messed up.
She was about to say something when she suddenly heard a bang behind her. Sun official was startled, her hands trembled, and she almost pierced her fingertips. She turned around angrily and saw a person standing amongst the dark. Behind him followed a group of maids. Upon seeing the Sun official’s gaze, the maids lowered their eyes one by one, and no one dared to step forward.
Sun official was stunned, and she suddenly understood. Prince Qiyang woke up. Not to mention that these people outside couldn’t even watch over him, but why didn’t they send someone to tell her?
The Sun official immediately led the group of female officials and knelt down, she didn’t have time to put away the needle pouch on the side: “The prince of Qiyang, we pay our respect to you.”
Mu Mingtang also stood up swiftly. She originally wanted to walk towards him, but Xie Xuanchen was surrounded by many attendants. He seemed so out of reach. Mu Mingtang stopped in her tracks for some reason.
