Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 80
Xi Xian didn’t understand what her legitimate sister was saying, and just once again forced herself to forgive her horrible words and actions. She pulled her sister’s hand, wanting to go back to the room.
She had decided, during such a great afternoon, they had to enjoy fragrant tea together, read a book and eat some afternoon pastries together.
She really, really wanted to live well with her big sister, even if the years of staying in the boudoir were so short.
Xi Xian had yet to pull her legitimate sister back to the room, that a maid outside came up to her to make a report: “Sixth miss, a servant came from the old madam’s side, the third miss of the He family has come to our residence, and is now waiting for you in the courtyard there.”
The third miss of the He family was probably the sixth miss’s friend. For her to come to the Xi family to see their miss wasn’t something that people would find strange, but the He family was very prominent, if someone were to go, it should be the sixth miss going over there, but now He Jinrong came over so willingly, and also brought some gifts, making people think that she held the sixth miss in high esteem.
Xi Xian was a little stunned, glancing at her legitimate sister, she whispered, “I thought that after the matter of the fans, sister He would never talk to me again.”
Her legitimate sister looked at her in silence, “Then you didn’t think about going to see her ?”
Xi Xian shook her head, a little embarrassed.
He was somewhat speechless and fell silent.
When Xi Xian did anything, she tended to start big but then end small.
She would aggressively rush forward, but as soon as the rhythm was disrupted, she would begin to flee in disarray, going as far as to even forget her original intention, angrily stomping her feet, and then forgetting all about it in the blink of an eye, hiding and enjoying herself on her own. This kind of naive and foolish young girl, no matter what, could never accomplish great things.
What kind of confidence did she have that he would love a woman like He Jinrong?
Xi Xian, however, was dejected and tugged at her legitimate sister’s cuffs, shyly saying, “Big sister, then will you accompany me to see sister He?”
She was afraid that He Jinrong was hiding her true nature, and coming over on a punitive expedition.
Xi Xian couldn’t win an argument against He Jinrong, and also couldn’t hold her own against her. But if her legitimate sister was sitting at the table, most likely He Jinrong wouldn’t dare to say a word.
In another place, He Jinrong was sitting inside waiting. She was wearing a violet dress with flowers, her body was slim and slender, her chest was well-rounded and delicate.
The old matriarch Xi was still cooking beans for the upcoming Buddhist feast, and couldn’t come for a while, so He Jinrong could only sit alone, and after only a short while, she had already drank a bellyful of tea, and the maid was still adding more to her cup.
After a while, she saw that some people were coming from outside the room, the maid went forward to lift the curtain, and respectfully hung down her head to wait on them.
Xi Xian was leaning by the side of a tall girl, they entered the room together, holding hands.
That girl was wearing simple black clothes, her long black hair was spread out and fixed into a bun with a wooden pin, she had a string of sandalwood-colored Buddha beads close to her azure cuffs. Her nose was high and straight with some aloofness and pride, her eyes were quiet and calm, and her whole body had a high and noble aura.
He Jinrong immediately clenched her palms, for some unknown reason, she felt waves surging inside her heart.
He Jinrong guessed who the girl in front of her was, the legitimate eldest daughter of the Xi family, Xi Heng.
The Xi family was nothing to be afraid of, but Xi Heng’s maternal family was the Lin family, and Xi Heng was the crown prince’s legitimate cousin.
He Jinrong did not know anything about Xi Heng, at most, she heard the elders say a few words about her, she heard that the unmarried eldest daughter of the Xi family had a gloomy character, was living strictly by the rules and was obsessed with Buddhism, but she had never really seen Xi Heng.
She only heard her grandmother say that she and Xi Heng met during their childhood, when the old lady of the Xi family wasn’t locking herself in the inner courtyard of her residence like she was now, at the time Xi Heng’s mother was still there.
The old lady also sighed with feeling as she said that when she was a child, the Xi family’s eldest daughter was a very witty child, and that at first sight, one could tell she carried the gentle and elegant aura of a noble family. At a young age, Xi Heng was extremely orderly in everything she did, and she even thought of getting Xi Heng as a wife for her step brother, which would have preserved the friendship of the elders.
But things did not go as planned, since the death of the Xi family’s main wife, Xi Heng gradually changed.
Being an eldest daughter with a dead mother, she no longer socialized with other people, remained solitary, only caring about the Buddha, and she occasionally climbed up the Huangjue mountain to talk with the abbot about holy scriptures. Those were all actions that noblewomen witnessed with their own eyes, and although He Jinrong had never exchanged with her, but she could feel that the aura surrounding Xi Heng’s body was cold and desolate, dressing in winter fox fur, with an icy white cold face, as if she was completely cut off from the world.
He Jinrong politely pursed her lips and smiled at Xi Heng, finally coming to a conclusion in her heart.
She was the crown prince’s cousin, so that explained why Xi Xian knew the crown prince.
