I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 92
Translated by ShainaG Translations
This person is sometimes annoying, and sometimes very gentle.
Chat as they lie in the same bed, how did she come up with this idea? Xie Xuanchen closed his eyes and let out a lazy “um”.
“How did you know that I was locked up today?”
This was way too simple. Usually whenever Xie Xuanchen opened his eyes, Mu Mingtang would be by his side. Even if she wasn’t, the moment he moved, Mu Mingtang would run over almost instantly.
Of course, he couldn’t say it out loud, but it seems that he felt very happy about it. Xie Xuanchen put on a plain tone and said: “When I woke up, the maid outside was extremely flustered, and the head maid also dodged my question to confuse me. I guessed that they were hiding something from me, so I forced them to speak up.”
“With just a brief glimpse, you could already notice that something was wrong, your senses are so sharp.” Mu Mingtang said in awe. She didn’t doubt Xie Xuanchen’s words, and wholeheartedly admired Xie Xuanchen’s sharp observation skills and fast reasoning ability. After Mu Mingtang sighed, he asked again: “Then how did you know that I was at the temple? If they hadn’t taken me there, I didn’t know that there was such a place in the manor.”
“I just have to ask them.” Xie Xuanchen didn’t think much about it, as if he was talking about the good weather today. “I found a sharp weapon and took advantage of it, I told the imperial servants that if they didn’t tell me, I would kill them, so they blurted everything.”
Mu Mingtang was silent. She didn’t think this was a casual question, presumably those maids who were threatened by Xie Xuanchen by the throat too, wouldn’t not think that it was a casual question.
Xie Xuanchen talked for a while, and was reminded of a question: “They took you away, what did they ask you?”
“Nothing, they just asked me when did you wake up and how the lock was opened.”
After Mu Mingtang finished speaking, she stayed quiet for a long time, and quietly added: “I didn’t say anything.”
“I know.” Xie Xuanchen exhaled, and there seemed to be a hint of self-mocking in his tone. “You didn’t need to hold on and say that you didn’t know anything, these people are here for me, it has nothing to do with you, you can say whatever you want. I was unconscious so they couldn’t interrogate me, so they looked for you. I’ll accept the consequences of my own wrong doings. I’m weak if I get a woman involved.”
Xie Xuanchen’s tone sounded very bad. Mu Mingtang didn’t know what he was thinking about, so she comforted him softly: “Actually, it’s okay. The Sun official is fierce, but in fact she just wanted to scare me, so that I’ll give in to her. Those needles and the bowl of medicine, they won’t dare to really use it on me.”
Xie Xuanchen chuckled softly, and said sarcastically: “Not necessarily. The needle may be there just to scare you, but that bowl of soup medicine might just be the real deal. They really wanted me to die, not only did they want me to die, but they also wanted me to be the last of my line.”
These words involved the Emperor and Empress Dowager, Mu Mingtang didn’t dare to answer it rashly. After a pause, she said in a low voice, “No, you’ll live in good health and peace, with children and grandchildren of your line, your name will go down in history for your legacy, and you’ll live a better life than everyone else.”
“My name will go down in history?” Xie Xuanchen mocked. “My bad reputation may also go down in history. It’s not just a life in vain, I’ll be scolded and cursed at for thousands of years.”
When it comes to this topic, he became very extreme and sensitive, he was disgusted about himself. Mu Mingtang felt uncomfortable, and simply got up and looked at Xie Xuanchen as she propped herself up: “My lord, what happened back then? They all said that you killed your adjutant and guards, but when you went crazy a few days ago, you did hurt many guards, but none of them died. You’re not a person who will take the initiative to hurt someone, let alone kill innocent people. Did something else happen that year?”
