Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 15
~End of chapter 14
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.
Xi Xian never expected that her legitimate sister would actually guess that she had hidden needles in her clothes today.
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 ……”
Under the eyes of everyone present, Xi Xian’s pitiful expression looked as if she was going to be eaten alive, so Xi Heng could not say anything, though her face turned sullen and cold.
Xi Xian’s eyes widened slightly, she looked at her legitimate sister with glowing eyes, while biting her deep pink lips.
She was just thinking about whether or not she should go on with her plan, after all her legitimate sister was suspecting her, the risk was even greater, she might end losing both her face and her original purpose.
Her legitimate sister slightly sneered, with raised eyebrows, she mocked her by whispering in her ear, “As a little girl, if you leave scars on your body, it won’t be good, be careful that you future husband ends up disliking you.”
Her legitimate sister added coldly, “You decide for yourself.”
Xi Xian’s eyes widened, and she tilted her head to look at her legitimate sister’s strong back.
Her legitimate sister’s pace was very fast, she had long legs, and although her steps were steady and uniform, Xi Xian couldn’t keep up with her, so she simply walked slowly behind.
She frowned slightly. She could hear the hidden meaning behind her legitimate sister’s words.
Then that meant that her legitimate sister was not intending to strictly stop her, she was just going to sit on the sidelines and watch. If in the future anything happened, Xi Xian would just have to take the blame.
But Xi Xian was more suspicious of another thing, she suspected that it was her legitimate sister who had done something with the needles and had gotten rid of them, which was how she knew that it was her who was playing a trick, wanting to frame someone else.
Her legitimate sister’s attitude was ambiguous. Xi Xian did not understand why her legitimate sister would do this.
But after interacting for a few years with her legitimate sister, Xi Xian also understood that although her legitimate sister had a lot of power, but she never personally involved herself in matters, and did not care at all about the feuds of the backyard’s residence. Besides, her mood was ever changing, there were times when Xi Xian obviously had not done anything wrong, yet her legitimate sister was displeased.
In her past life, she was once mocked by Xi Yao, who told her that she would never marry and that no man would ever like her, although she had said those words in a concealed manner, like an iron fist hidden in velvet glove, but how could Xi Xian, who had stayed in the backyard of the residence for so many years, not understand the implication? Therefore, because of the shame and humiliation she felt that day, she pushed Xi Yao on an impulse.
Xi Yao endlessly wailed and went to complain to her legitimate sister, but she ended up being grounded instead until she got married and had to copy sixty lines of sutras a day before she could go to sleep.
That day, when Xi Yao came out, she did not dare to cry any longer, her legs were weak, and she had to be supported by someone else to walk. Someone asked her what her legitimate sister had said to her, but Xi Yao, with a ghastly pale face, refused to answer.
In the past, Xi Xian, with ill-will, had guessed that, for words to be so terrible to a girl, so terrible to Xi Yao, perhaps their legitimate sister had told her that if she dared to talk nonsense ever again, not only would her marriage be cancelled, but that she should no longer hope to get married in this life, so that she could experience what it was like to be an unmarried old woman.
But Xi Xian only thought of it as a joke, no matter what, Xi Yao was her legitimate sister’s favorite sister, so she couldn’t be so terrible to this extent.
No one knew why her legitimate sister was upset, Xi Xian also did not know.
Her legitimate sister was jealous of her beauty and did not like her fawning nature and softness. Because she hated her, she didn’t allow her to marry anyone, yet she punished Xi Yao, this matter was very strange and unusual.
Later, when her legitimate sister still did not allow her to marry anyone, Xi Xian did not think any further about this matter, she only thought of it as her legitimate sister being in a bad mood that day.
This also showed that her legitimate sister was a moody person, and that perhaps she was not so sincere towards Xi Yao.
Therefore, regarding today’s incident, Xi Xian relied on those years of familiarity, to guess that her legitimate sister was too lazy to expose her, and that it was pointless for her to pay attention to these matters.
This was exactly what she wanted.
So, when she took her seat next to her legitimate sister, she revealed a faint smile again. Because of her special status, she was sitting very closely to the Xu family’s wife. The slight elegant air that showed on her face entered the eyes of the Xu’s family wife.
This girl was only a concubine-born daughter, yet both her bearing and etiquette, were of the first-class sophistication and refinement, she was truly exceptional.
The Xu family was an important family, so invitations were distributed throughout Chang’an, the real owner personally come to the door to drink wine like they were almost the same family, and just like people did with her legitimate sister Xi Heng’s maternal family, the Lin family, many people showed up to offer polite gifts.
(TL’s note: I’m guessing “the real owner” means the current emperor, but I’m not entirely sure)
The Xu family, who exchanged marriage keepsakes with Xi Xian’s father, master Xi, had chosen for the marriage their legitimate-born son, but his health had not been good since childhood. It was not to the extent of endangering his life, so it had not affected the whole matter. Rumors said that this young master was very talented, so even if his body was a bit weak, girls were still willing to marry him.
In her past life, Xi Xian, feeling uncomfortable because of the needles, had gotten away from the banquet for a moment, and had seen this young master from afar.
