Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 13
~End of chapter 12
Xi Xian spent many years to think about it clearly. If back then she had married an honest man from a commoner’s family, with a strong family foundation, she might have been happy for the rest of her life, just like those days in the courtyard with her concubine mother when she was a child. A simple and down to earth life.
So, Xi Xian did not care about the great reputation among the noble circles.
With obstacles (to her reputation), she could stay away from the strife, and marry into an ordinary family. In the future, unless her father committed a capital felony that would condemn the entire family, otherwise nothing could touch her.
As for Xi Yao, since she wanted marry into the Xu family, she would fulfill her wish.
When comes that time, she would go back home and take out the needles on her body and make a counterattack. Her father would certainly not let Xi Yao off, being grounded would be small punishment for her. The engagement would fall on Xi Yan’s head, and Xi Yao would definitely be furiously mad.
The bad intentions in Xi Xian’s head were bubbling out, she couldn’t wait for that moment to come. The corners of her lips curved up, as she went back to her room with cheerfulness.
Her concubine mother was eating a bird’s nest soup, no need to say, her legitimate sister must have been the one who had ordered people to deliver it.
Xi Xian felt that her legitimate sister was not normal, what was up with her trying to please her concubine mother?
Or was she was throwing a long line to catch a big fish?
But then what was her real purpose and what was the fish she wanted to catch?
Xi Xian thought this question was too difficult, and she even suspected whether or not her legitimate sister, who had always been aloof, was interested in the baby in her concubine mother’s belly. But it didn’t make sense, even if it was a boy, he would only be a concubine’s son, so he wouldn’t be a hinder to their eldest brother, nor to her.
In addition, her legitimate sister didn’t have any warmth, she was downright cold-hearted with lungs of ice, and was even cruelly indifferent.
She thought about it for a long time but still couldn’t figure it out, but she was guaranteed in her heart that her legitimate sister definitely didn’t have good intentions.
In her last life, Xi Xian only discovered that someone had added needles in her clothes after she got off the carriage.
She did not know at which point in time Xi Yao had made her move, so she directly ordered the maidservants around her to take a good rest these days, and not to work too hard.
The clothes were exactly the same as the ones in her last life, at least in Xi Xian’s impression. There was a soft pale pink colored dress, as well as a deep pink cloak embroidered with gold threads, it looked gentle and elegant in a noble way.
Back then, even as her body was being pierced by needles, Xi Xian just took the cloak to cover the wounds and didn’t lose any decorum by showing an unsteady bearing.
However, Xi Xian deliberately searched and turned the clothes over several times but did not find even one needle in the clothes.
She simply could not believe it.
It was obvious that Xi Yao still hated her very much, and she had even deliberately relaxed her guard, had Xi Yao turned into a useless waste?
Xi Xian was very unhappy.
She thought about it and decided to take matters into her own hands.
In any case, if a normal girl wanted to marry into a family of high lineage, she wouldn’t dig a hole for herself. Ruining her own reputation and ruining her own engagement, what normal girl would do this?
Only others would harm her, this was a very simple logic.
Xi Xian would rather suffer once again, so that she could let Xi Yao experience the taste of being falsely accused and pushed into the fire.
She thought she was going crazy, but Xi Xian thought she could be even more vicious.
The next step was to give so much pressure to her legitimate sister that she wouldn’t be able to breathe, to let her know the feeling of helplessness and injustice of being compelled, yet still having to desperately curry favor with her. She had to let her legitimate sister also try the feeling of having one’s imminent marriage being destroyed by people. That would feel very good.
In the end, she would clap her hands, take her concubine mother with her and leave the Xi family. That would be the most satisfying.
Xi Xian felt that she should be more thorough, she told herself that she had nothing to feel guilty about, and that if she didn’t do anything, those people would harm her and her concubine mother, so she might as well make a preemptive strike.
As Xi Xian looked into the bronze mirror, she slowly revealed a warm and innocent smile.
When Xi Xian came out, she saw Xi Yao with Xi Yan, arm in arm, standing on one side. Xi Yao revealed a strange cold smile.
Xi Xian instinctively felt very strange.
The reason was that Xi Yao’s cold smile looked like the expression of someone coming to watch a show after having arranged a special situation. It matched the experience she had during her past life.
But in fact, she did not manage to arrange anything this time, did she?
Xi Xian’s innocently and softly inclined her head, smiled at Xi Yao, and bowed in salute before getting on the carriage, with no intention to approach them to talk.
However, when she was about to get into the carriage, Yan momo spoke up from behind, “Sixth miss, our mistress said that you should ride in her carriage.”
Xi Xian opened her eyes wide, pretending not to know, she turned her head back and said, “Is elder sister also going?”
Yan momo smiled respectfully and said, “Naturally. The mistress said that it’s a rare occasion to go out, besides today’s weather is good, so she decided to go at the last minute.”
Xi Xian clutched her handkerchief and wanted to refuse, but she heard her legitimate sister’s voice behind her, with a low, hoarse laugh: “Sixth miss, come with me.”
In her past life, her legitimate sister liked calling her “sixth miss” instead of “sixth sister”, which sounded like she was calling an outsider.
Xi Xian sat inside the carriage, trying to avoid as much as possible the hidden needles in her clothes, and she lowered her eyes, not saying a word.
