Unaware that My Legitimate Sister is My Husband - Chapter 81
~End of chapter 80
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.
Xi Heng’s existence was too aloof and solitary, causing people to always dissociate themselves from her, but now the relationship between the two sisters seemed to look good.
Xi Heng was expressionless, curling up the corners of her lips with an unclear intention, as she sat down on the side, with Xi Xian holding her arm.
Xi Xian herself walked to He Jinrong’s side, leaving her legitimate sister alone on the opposite side.
Her legitimate sister was not easy to get along with, it was not good to sit too close to her, she had to protect the guest properly.
Xi Heng’s long eyebrows raised slightly, as he watched Xi Xian turn her head and hug He Jinrong’s arm intimately, calling her repeatedly big sister sweetly.
With her eyelashes hanging down, Xi Xian said softly and intimately, “Big sister He, you’re here at last! How have you been doing? It’s been such a long time since we parted last time, I missed you so much.”
He Jinrong pinched the bridge of her nose, her tone was as gentle as honey, “I missed you too ah, but look at you, how come you’ve lost so much weight ?”
Xi Xian’s black and white eyes had a few red blood streaks, looking like she had just cried, and even the tip of her nose was a bit pink, her small face was pallid and white, but she still looked very pretty, with a lovely fragility.
When Xi Xian turned her eyes, she saw that her legitimate sister was lifting her eyes, giving her a careless look, seeming like a lazy beast, she then lowered her head to leisurely sip tea, without any intention to acknowledge He Jinrong’s presence.
Xi Xian pouted her lips and also lowered her head to sip the tea.
From He Jinrong’s point of view, Xi Xian and Xi Heng’s movements were exactly the same, even the sound of the tea cups overlapped, the two of them hadn’t said a word since the moment they walked in until now, but they were strangely in harmony, as if they had a tacit understanding of each other.
It was just that Xi Xian herself was unaware of it.
He Jinrong pulled up the corners of her mouth, revealing a smile, as she explained the purpose of her visit: “In a few days, you will have your coming of age ceremony, and no matter how unfit as a big sister I am, I still have to prepare a gift for your coming of age. But at that time, I might not be able to come in person so I thought I should take advantage of these few days when I still have free time to go out, to catch up with you.”
In fact, the coming of age that He Jinrong was talking about was going to be held a few months later, Xi Xian herself did not even remember, yet she still remembered so clearly.
Xi Xian was instantly a little bit touched.
Realizing her meaning, she asked in a small voice, “What’s wrong with sister He? How come you won’t have any free time?”
Hearing her finally ask about the main point, He Jinrong softly sighed: “My family set up a marriage for me, I will soon be married to the South China Sea, and in a few days, I will have to embroider my dowry behind closed doors. My husband’s family has strict rules, I have to comply with them.”
Xi Xian: “…………”
She was doubting her own ears.
Xi Xian froze and said bluntly, “Why ah, why is sister He’s marriage so hurried?”
He Jinrong’s eyes contained a few tears, and she gently shook her head and said: “I also do not know, I am just an helpless girl in the boudoir, what solution do I have?”
Xi Xian thought to herself that she was even more helpless now.
He Jinrong raised her eyes to look at her, her eyes were flooded with glowing water, as she whispered, “Xianxian, I know you can’t do anything about it, but didn’t you mention to me a while ago that a precious person had rewarded you with a set of fans ……?”
Xi Xian’s brain for a moment couldn’t recall, but then she remembered all the nonsense she made up. Her snow-white face turned red all of the sudden, her mouth slightly pursed, and very soon even her neck became red.
She was really afraid, if He Jinrong knew that she had made things up, then she would really entirely lose face.
So, though Xi Xian told herself to calm down on one hand, but on the other hand, she was so ashamed, like a cat whose tail had been stepped on, feeling so anxious she wanted to cry aloud.
Especially now, in front of her legitimate sister, it was even more embarrassing.
He Jinrong saw the little girl’s eyes turning around, her cheeks turning red, her body’s posture becoming shy and timid, and then she thought about what could have happened.
Last time Xi Xian brought up the crown prince, she was a bit shy, and refused to say anything when asked questions, but now she had this expression on her face.
Could it be that she and the crown prince had already gotten intimate on the skin level ?
He Jinrong remembered the crown prince’s tall and slender body, the muscles which held a strong force, the low and magnetic voice when he spoke, how charming would he be in bed ?
The man must have tormented Xi Xian, such a small girl, until she was close to her death, charming her to her doom.
Her heart was suddenly flooded with sourness and bitterness, she felt that even though she had a better background than her, yet her fate wasn’t better than Xi Xian’s, how come she managed to catch the most powerful man in the dynasty, and not her ?
She did not do anything, she just had a little ambition, but she was being sent out by her father to marry far away!
No matter how she thought about it, it was extremely unfair.
He Jinrong thought that she couldn’t be the only one to be ruined, Xi Xian also had to accompany her on this road.
