Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 63
~End of chapter 62
At night, the night wind was whistling and beating against the window, as Xi Xian tossed and turned on the bed, unable to sleep.
She put on her embroidered shoes and got down to the ground, but then she saw a person standing outside, in a plain white dress, which outlined the slender and thin waist. The person had long black hair spread behind their head, with a bun fixed with a jade hairpin, looking cold and aloof in the night, leaving only a tall and graceful back figure.
That was her legitimate sister, Xi Heng.
Xi Xian’s tears rolled down immediately, her pair of almond eyes turned red, as she bit her lips, unable to speak. Draped in a loose robe, and exposed ankles, she looked extremely small and frail from afar.
Xi Xian lowered her head, gathered her sleeves to battle against the wind, and slowly said, “Big sister, how come you’re here ?”
Her legitimate sister turned her head, in the night, the expression on her face couldn’t be seen, and she just slowly said with a low voice: “Didn’t the sixth miss want to see me? Now that you’re seeing me, how come you’re despising me ?”
Xi Xian hurriedly said, “I’m not.”
She couldn’t hold back the trepidation in her heart and put on a clock while gently saying, “Big sister, how come you can write that handwriting style? Why did you give me that letter ?”
Xi Xian’s heart was thumping, her voice trembling as she said, “Did you also …… also come back to life?”
Her legitimate sister smiled, her slender fingers made a gesture at her lips, her long dark hair was blown by the wind, her eyes were deep and cold, “You won’t want to know.”
She did not understand the deep meaning in her legitimate sister’s words, but she understood the basic meaning.
Xi Xian’s nose felt sore, her heart was moved, and she hugged Xi Heng’s waist as she said, “Big sister …… big sister ah!”
There was a very nice sandalwood scent on her legitimate sister’s body, deep and distant. When that scent was on a woman’s body, it made Xi Xian feel more at ease. She believed that her legitimate sister was a good sister that she could rely on, even if she was a little mean and insane, everything she did in this life was for her own good.
Her legitimate sister remained silent. Her long slender fingers slightly gathered Xi Xian’s long hair, and squeezed her thin shoulder blades, forcefully making her look up at herself. Xi Heng’s light-colored eyes were in the darkness, but they were so deep that Xi Xian couldn’t help but be mesmerized, so she smiled with tears in her eyes.
Her legitimate sister raised up her jaw, her thin lips slightly opened, and she intimately said in her ear, “Xianxian, big sister is not a very good person.”
“Don’t get too close to me, then maybe I’ll be kind-hearted and I’ll let you off the hook, mmh?”
Her legitimate sister’s slender fingers lifted up her long hair, smoothing it a little bit. Her movements were gentle and skillful, as if she had done it countless times. Then she held Xi Xian’s hands again, slowly warming them.
Xi Xian could be sure, her legitimate sister had always known what she was thinking about, had always known about her rebirth, had always been helping her, and Xi Xian could now figure out the reason why she had saved her concubine mother.
Xi Xian began to cry again, the tears fell down as if they were endless.
She hugged her legitimate sister’s strong and thin waist and buried her head in her big sister’s arms, her crying voice was soft and delicate: “Big sister, it’s been too hard for me since I’ve come back to life, why do I have to live once again? I’d rather drink Grandma Meng’s soup and be reincarnated.”
(TL’s note : in the underworld, when souls are being reincarnated, they first have to drink Grandma Meng’s soup to forget their past life)
Xi Xian cried so hard that she hiccuped. Her legitimate sister just took her in her arms and carefully soothed her.
The bright full moon was covered by dark clouds, her legitimate sister’s voice was hoarse and eerily gentle: “Of course it’s to fulfill a long-cherished wish, Xianxian.”
Xi Xian, ignorant and unaware, wrapped her arms around her legitimate sister’s waist and stood on her tiptoes to plant a kiss on her face.
It was an innocent and intimate kiss, Xi Xian only wanted to express her excitement, but her legitimate sister stiffened, and her slightly cool fingers restrained Xi Xian, preventing her from making any more out of the ordinary move. It seemed as if she was holding back something.
Xi Xian thought that her legitimate sister was angry, but when she looked closer, she even had a smile on her lips, which was as soft and gentle as the spring breeze during the second month.
She softly sobbed, covered her eyes, and finally spoke out her heart, saying: “Big sister, I have no long-cherished wish to fulfill, I don’t want anything, I just want to live a good life.”
Her legitimate sister didn’t reply to her, she just held her wrist and sighed with a light smile, “What a silly child ……”.
Xi Xian didn’t know what state of mind she was in right now regarding her legitimate sister, perhaps it was just like a reunion after a long parting, like seeing a deceased person from a distant past life, a deceased person who, after being separated from her for many years, had finally put down her sharpness and hostility to coexist with her.
Everyone was the same, including her concubine mother and little brother, only her legitimate sister was different.
She was finally able to tell someone all the matters in her heart that she could tell no one before without being seen as a monster.
Xi Xian pestered her legitimate sister, insisting to sleep with her, and sticking to her like honey.
It was as if she had found an outlet to vent, as she told her big sister all the grievances she had endured for many years and all of her fate.
Her legitimate sister just closed her eyes and held her in her arms, so that Xi Xian could not see her expression, as she became a faithful listener.
Xi Xian knew that her legitimate sister came from the Lin Clan and that the crown prince could be considered to be her older cousin, so she had to make these things clear. She had to tell her legitimate sister plainly that she didn’t want to be with the crown prince.
Xi Xian said, “Big sister, I used to really love him, but I don’t want to be with him anymore.”
Her legitimate sister, however, suddenly opened her eyes and said in a deep voice, “What did you say?”
