I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 83
Translated by ShainaG Translations
“Yes.” The Sun official kowtowed, then she took the bowl from the other female officer, and finished the whole bowl in front of everyone. A bowl of medicine with this type of function for sure wouldn’t taste good. Mu Mingtang felt sick just by smelling it. The Sun official gagged a few times after drinking it, but she still finished the whole bowl.
They didn’t expect Xie Xuanchen to wake up so quickly, and they didn’t expect Xie Xuanchen to come over in person at night. Didn’t they say that Prince Qiyang was so sick that he was already at his last breath, that he was about to meet the King of Hell anytime now?
The Sun official and the others had another task. They only stayed at the temple all day and didn’t serve in the Yu Lin Hall, so they were very late in knowing about Xie Xuanchen’s condition. When they knew about it, it was already too late.
The emperor didn’t want children to be born in the Qiyang Manor. Xie Xuanchen was already extremely troublesome, so the emperor didn’t want a baby to be born with Xie Xuanchen’s bloodline. Although Xie Xuanchen didn’t seem to be in the best condition to make someone pregnant right now, however, what if?
The emperor didn’t like uncertainties, nor did he dare to gamble on the chances. However, these worries were hard for the emperor to say out loud. Empress Dowager Lu noticed the emperor’s unspeakable thoughts and instructed her female officials to head out of the palace to solve the emperor’s hidden worries.
According to the imperial physician, Xie Xuanchen needed at least three or four days to wake up, so the Sun official brought along the soup medicine with a relaxed heart, and wanted to take advantage of these few days to settle Mu Mingtang. As soon as the row of dazzling and shining needles were laid out, there was no woman who could hold on further, it’s a better choice to just end it quickly with the soup. After all, with Xie Xuanchen’s body, it was impossible for her to have children in her life.
Anyway, the end result would be the same, why would she want to disobey the Emperor Dowager? Also, she could save herself from the pain of her own skin and flesh. But Mu Mingtang chose the needle. The Sun official was slightly surprised and felt that it was a pity, but she wasn’t disappointed. It seems that the young princess Qiyang won’t learn her lesson without some punishments.
If Mu Mingtang cooperated, everything could have gone smoothly. However, she didn’t cooperate, it was just some slight suffering of her body, and then she had to drink the medicine. It would be what the emperor wanted, no matter the process, the end result wouldn’t change.
No one guessed that Xie Xuanchen would actually wake up this soon. It was originally a clever plan to share the emperor’s worries, but now it made the emperor look bad. No matter what the emperor thought, murdering the Prince of Qiyang cannot be associated with his identity. If they couldn’t handle it, being rewarded was of course off the table, but they’ll most probably die in horrific ways.
Every one of them understood this truth, so when Prince Qiyang asked, all of them rushed to bear the responsibility. In the end, it was the Sun official who stood out. She was the highest ranked. Only when she suffered, Prince Qiyang could only calm down.
When the Sun official was drinking the medicine, the people who surrounded, turned their head away as they couldn’t bear to look. When she finished the last drop, the Sun official fell to the ground instantly and gagged, and very quickly, her abdomen began to cramp.
The Sun official shrank into the shape of a dried shrimp on the ground, and she couldn’t help but roll around, Xie Xuanchen just watched her coldly. He stood up slowly, not knowing whether he was speaking to the Sun official, who was on the ground, or someone else: “I don’t want to dirty my hands today, so I’ll spare your lives for the time being. Don’t you dare play any more dirty tricks in the future, if you dare to touch my people, I’ll make you vomit out whatever I asked you to eat.”
When Xie Xuanchen spoke, his face was pale white, and his lips were pale too. With his pale face, cold gaze and his tear mole under his eyes, he looked like a ghost that was from the water, cold but beautiful.
After he finished speaking, he raised his gaze to look at Mu Mingtang, he still looked cold and arrogant, and he stretched out his hand to Mu Mingtang: “Let’s go, I’ll take you home.”
It was a cold tone, but in Mu Mingtang’s ears, his voice instantly felt like the spring breeze in March, which melted the snow and ice. Mu Mingtang’s eyes suddenly brightened, and she immediately ran over to him and held his hand.
“Okay, let’s go home.”
