Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 14
Her legitimate sister was not dressed formally today, but she was also wearing a pale, pink-colored dress, embroidered with black and gold threads that formed a painting of mountains and rivers, that turned into a beautiful landscape with a breath, and was embellished with precious beads and jade. The style was of so much grandeur, that just lazily sitting there, she had the luxury appearance of a superior looking down from above.
Her legitimate sister used the tea lid to skim the froth, before slowly taking a sip. She looked with scrutiny at her and said: “You dare not raise your head?”
Xi Xian lifted her head and met her legitimate sister’s sharp and raised eyes, before she again lowered her head and eyes. She said, “No, it’s just that it’s the first time I’m going to a banquet, I’m a little scared.”
Her legitimate sister snorted, but didn’t express her opinion and just asked her indifferently: “The lychees were good?”
Xi Xian said, “No, I gave them all to the servants.”
Her legitimate sister seemed as though she couldn’t feel her hostility, and she smiled lightly: “Sixth miss is so brave, who spoiled you like that exactly? Mmh?”
Xi Xian had her legitimate sister’s secret in her hand, so she was not anxious at all, she would wait for the moment her legitimate sister would erupt in rage and come to trouble her, to slowly expose the fact that she knew her secret, which would make her legitimate sister not have any choice but to swallow her anger. She would have to swallow back the blood, through her teeth.
At this moment, she looked at her legitimate sister innocently, hiding her hands in her sleeve before saying softly: “I am spoiling myself, I just want to treat myself better, if sometimes I seem arrogant, please don’t get mad at me. I am a girl born from an outside mistress, I have no insight ah.”
Xi Xian blinked again and began to drink tea without any concern. When the warm and fragrant tea flowed through her dry throat, she finally started to calm down a little.
Her legitimate sister slowly hummed, supporting her chin, she was holding a book as she commented, without expressing a judgement, “You have made progress.”
Seeing the cool smile on the side of her lips as well as her dark and gloomy eyes, Xi Xian felt like she couldn’t breathe, and she started to pick her nails with her head down, with an unconcerned look.
Xi Heng couldn’t be bothered to pay any more attention to her, and Xi Xian was more than happy about it. When she got off the carriage, she did not forget the rules and let her legitimate sister get off first.
She had hated getting off the carriage all her life, because she was small and easily scared. Before, when the emperor took her outside, the shame and humiliation that the emperor put her through when he carried her in his arms was something Xi Xian could hardly forget. Later, she refused to go out in a carriage ever again.
When she lifted the curtain, she found that her legitimate sister was waiting for her.
Among the teenage girls of this time, her legitimate sister was considered to be incredibly tall.
She heard that all the people in her maternal family, the Lin family, were tall, so people would only think that she was tall like this because of the Lin bloodline.
Xi Xian occasionally thought that being tall was good, but her strength was so brute that she didn’t look at all like a high-born lady.
Her legitimate sister might be a good help if she ever went farming in the mountains. As she thought so, Xi Xian gave her legitimate sister a strange smile.
But her legitimate sister held out her hand and said coldly to her, “What are you doing in a daze, come down, give me your hand.”
The palm of her legitimate sister’s hand was much larger than hers, but the bones were thin and well-defined, giving off the impression of nobility to people who saw them.
Xi Xian’s hand, however, were a bit chubby, more petite than the ordinary woman’s, with ten long, slender, but plump fingers.
Both the elders and the emperor loved to touch her little hands.
Especially the emperor. He was a scoundrel.
Xi Xian did not want to pretend and put on a facade of being strong, so she extended her hand, which was quickly yanked by her legitimate sister. With a half spin, she was instantly pulled in her arms and landed on the ground.
Xi Xian was stunned, and her heart was beating frantically as she was being held in her arms. When she smelled the cold and faint sandalwood fragrance, the corners of her eyes couldn’t help but turn red and she fiercely glared at her legitimate sister.
Her legitimate sister’s slightly cold fingers, slowly and methodically, touched her back. Xi Xian stiffened. Her body tensed as she tried to avoid her.
She was afraid that her legitimate sister would touch the needles she had hidden.
Her legitimate sister’s voice was lower than the average girl’s, slow and cold, but not without a unique elegance. Xi Xian had never heard anyone speak better than her legitimate sister, with a bit of androgynous feeling, making people feel she was wise and could be relied on.
At the time when Xi Xian was not so afraid of her in her last life, she enjoyed listening to her legitimate sister’s voice.
A few short words said by her legitimate sister would be played in her mind several times. She really liked people with pleasant voices.
But later, her legitimate sister’s voice lost its appeal to her, because it was too fearsome, enough to make her shiver.
When she came back to her senses, she lowered her eyes and took a few steps back, her slightly innocent and soft voice said: “I’m very well-behaved, don’t be like this, I am afraid ……”
