I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 99
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Xie Xuanji completely understands, only if he had a son, he could then completely win over the Xie Xuanchen who had no children. For the future throne, how could Xie Xuanji be sloppy on this.
The emperor talked to Xie Xuanji for a while more, nothing more than just to visit Xie Xuanchen’s more diligently, with a more respectful attitude, and be more patient towards him. Xie Xuanji responded one by one, and the emperor sent him away.
After Xie Xuanchen’s decree was sent out, everyone was upset. Xie Xuanchen punished the Empress Dowager’s female officials, he didn’t even dare to cause such chaos in the palace. Instead, the emperor promoted Xie Xuanchen and he now could possibly be the next heir, gave him the title of Prince An, sent countless gold and silver jewelry, precious medicinal materials, and even sent a team of imperial physicians to specially look after Xie Xuanchen.
Upon looking at this treatment, those who knew would think that he was his nephew, those who didn’t know, would think that he was serving his own father.
Mu Mingtang woke up early this morning to get ready. They angered someone yesterday, that person will for sure come ask for an explanation. Mu Mingtang was sitting in distress. After waiting for a long time, Xiang Nanchun stepped forward to report: “Princess, someone came.”
“Okay.” Mu Mingtang nodded, she was prepared. Xie Xuanchen hasn’t woken up yet, so she had to deal with it on her own. She should at least act confident in this situation. When Mu Mingtang got up today, she used a lot of expensive hairpins and combed a very complicated bun. She stood up and asked, “Where is the person?”
“The eunuch, who is here to report on the decree, is already in the main hall of the manor, please head there, princess.”
Mu Mingtang’s legs softened when she heard of the decree. Didn’t she just chase away two henchmen. Isn’t it too much for the emperor to come and ask for an explanation himself? Mu Mingtang tried her best to keep a calm expression. She kept telling herself that she wouldn’t lose in this battle. She kept a fearless expression on her face, and asked: “This matter even disturbed the emperor, what is the decree about?”
“The emperor raised the lord as Prince An, the reward is at the main hall.”
“It’s to reward……what, reward us?” Mu Mingtang was shocked. What did she just hear just now, he’s given the title of a prince and is given rewards?
Mu Mingtang was doing good before, but her expression immediately changed after hearing the imperial decree from the emperor. Xiang Nanchun thought that the princess was dissatisfied with their title being changed, and hurriedly knelt down and said: “To answer the princess, it’s the imperial decree and rewards. The imperial decree was ordered by his majesty himself. The governor and officials of the three provinces have stamped in approval, the rewards are also very grand, 50000g of gold, thousands of rolls of silk, many precious chinese medicines, and even the ginsengs that were prepared for his majesty and the Empress Dowager in the palace has been sent here. The emperor said, it can’t wait any longer for this year’s tribute to be delivered. The prince’s recovery is of utmost importance, the palace can wait.”
…… If she didn’t know that it was impossible, Mu Mingtang would almost think that Xie Xuanchen was actually the emperor’s own father. Only the officials would help the emperor and the Empress Dowager to share their worries. It was the first time that Mu Mingtang heard that the emperor and the Empress Dowager gave their medicine to someone else.
Mu Mingtang tried her best to keep her fearless expression, and said lightly, “What else?”
“The five imperial physicians from the Imperial Physician Bureau came to greet you. From now on, these five imperial physicians will stay in the manor to help nurse the lord to health. The basic necessities would be entirely settled by the Imperial Physician Bureau. You just have to arrange a place for them to stay. “
“The accompanying eunuch also brought a message from the Empress Dowager, saying that she wasn’t feeling very well recently, and didn’t pay attention to her subordinates, how dare they offend the princess. The Empress Dowager was furious after knowing about this, and had already punished those servants, they were flogged 20 times and sent to the Coat Bureau to do some tough chores. The Empress Dowager sent some precious and beautiful embroidery for you, hoping that this would calm you down from the shock, she hopes that you won’t take that matter to heart anymore.”
Mu Mingtang was now sure that Xie Xuanchen was really the emperor’s long-lost father.
