I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 85
Translated by ShainaG Translations
The queen then sent someone amongst the female officials, to fill in the empty slots in the manor. Xiang Nanchun was the leader of these female officials, who just arrived and was in charge of the manor’s internal affairs.
Mu Mingtang didn’t have any opinion on this, how could the wife do all the things by herself, not to mention Mrs. Jiang, but even Mu Mingtang’s mother, they only had a courtyard with houses on four sides, and her mother already had a dozen or so maids. With such a large mansion, how could she be the only one here to manage it.
Their family were only merchants, how could a manor be less grand than them. At first, she didn’t have a choice, but now that Xie Xuanchen has woken up and people knew about this, Mu Mingtang, as the princess, couldn’t put down her dignity and do the housework herself.
The Qiyang Manor needed people to manage it, and the way the people from the palace did things would be much more dependable. As for who was the person behind these female officials……With Mu Mingtang’s current situation, no matter who was behind them, she can’t do much about it.
It’s better to save up the worrying and deal with Xiang Nanchun pleasantly. Xiang Nanchun would be a good leader, and Mu Mingtang would get to live her life comfortably.
Mu Mingtang nodded, and said some words of encouragement casually, which gave the new head of internal affairs some form of recognition. Xiang Nanchun unexpectedly found that she was getting along with Princess Qiyang better than expected, at least much better than when the Prince Qiyang next to her.
Xiang Nanchun responded one by one, and finally stood up and asked: “Princess, the stove’s fire is still burning, do you want to get supper?”
Mu Mingtang understood as soon as she heard her, she had been starved by the Sun official for almost two days. If compared with the time when she was fleeing from the North, this level of hunger wasn’t even worth mentioning. However, after Mu Mingtang was adopted, she had no worries about food and clothing. She had fixed meals for a year, and her stomach had gotten used to this luxurious life. Now, Mu Mingtang was so hungry that her stomach didn’t feel very comfortable.
The people in the palace speaked honorably, this would not only please Mu Mingtang, but it also won’t embarrass Mu Mingtang by pointing out the truth. Mu Mingtang was convinced, and nodded: “Okay, but it’s better not to eat food that is way too oily at night, just make a bowl of barley porridge.
After Mu Mingtang finished speaking, she looked back at Xie Xuanchen naturally: “Do you want to eat anything?”
Xie Xuanchen’s expression still looked cold, as if someone owed him money: “I don’t want to eat.”
“Okay.” Mu Mingtang turned back and told Xiang Nanchun, “And a chinese yam with shredded chicken porridge, low heat, and simmer it for a little longer.”
Xiang Nanchun was taken aback, she gave Xie Xuanchen a quick glance, and then looked at Mu Mingtang in awe. Prince Qiyang, who looked extremely hard to get along with, didn’t react at all, he just let Mu Mingtang decide.
Xiang Nanchun was slightly confused. When Prince Qiyang broke the spoon, Xiang Nanchun had no doubt that Xie Xuanchen could kill her. After going to the temple, Xie Xuanchen mocked the chief female officer that was under the Empress Dowager, he didn’t show any sign of mercy. However, now the princess had refused to follow his orders in front of him, he reacted as if he was a good tempered man, he didn’t feel irritated about it at all?
Xiang Nanchun watched the two as she hesitated to speak, and finally went out in confusion. After Xiang Nanchun left, the other servants were scared of Xie Xuanchen, no one dared to stay here alone, so they all made excuses to head out.
After everyone left, Mu Mingtang said, “It’ll take some time to make the porridge, I’ll help you back to bed so you can rest for awhile.”
