Under the watchful eyes of the villagers, Princess Yuanyuan could not order for its capture. She stared at Servant Ye and hinted at her. Servant Ye was clever enough to understand it. She looked at Gu Xijiu and seemed to understand something. She sharply said, “This little Xie Zhi was bought by the princess in the restaurant during at lunch from a guy named Luo Zheng. It was witnessed by many people in the restaurant. Although this little Xie Zhi used to be owned by you, it had now sold, and it is not yours anymore. What is the reason for you to steal it? Is it a trap set between you and the man named Luo Zheng to cheat the princess?”
Princess Yuanyuan sighed. “I really like this little Xie Zhi and spent 100,000 devil coins to buy it. It was a fair trade, and I did not take advantage of the seller. If it was a small amount, I wouldn’t mind being cheated by you. In fact, I would give it to you as a donation. However, the 100,000 devil coins I used was given to me by the Devil King for my birthday! How can I allow it to be stolen by you?”
“Please give us back the little Xie Zhi! Our princess will show you mercy and spare your life.” The other servants also stared at Gu Xijiu scornfully.
Princess Yuanyuan was obviously prepared. They turned the situation upside down and pushed the blame on Gu Xijiu. The fact that Princess Yuanyuan spent 100,000 devil coins to buy the silver wolf at noon was known by a lot of people, so everyone nodded to agree. The situation was extremely unfavorable to Gu XIjiu!
Luo Zheng had left the Devil Kingdom, so he naturally could not testify for her; thus, there were many witnesses on the side of the princess. In order to prove her statement, the princess also ordered a maid to go and invite the owner of the restaurant to testify.
Due to the popularity of Princess Yuanyuan, it was easy for her to convince the crowd with just her words alone. What more could Gu Xijiu expect from the situation now that there were even witnesses on her side? Needless to say, the crowd looked at Gu Xijiu as a deceitful liar.
“What a liar! How can you lie to our princess!?”
“Yes, it’s too shameful! She must be in partnership with Luo Zheng.”
“Catch her! Burn her! We hate liars the most here!”
“Yes! Burn her as a warning to others!”
The crowd was getting bigger by the minute. In just a brief moment, hundreds of people had gathered in the area. People were filled with indignation and were yelling at Gu Xijiu. What’s more, there were people who had already begun to pull up their sleeves and get physical.
Little Xie Zhi realized that the situation was not favorable; it understood the trick used by the princess! It was so angry that its silver hair was erected like a little lion! It wanted to defend Gu Xijiu so badly, but unfortunately, it could not say anything.
Although Princess Yuanyuan did not display her emotion on her face, she was smug. When she found out that Little Xie Zhi and the child were stolen, she questioned the caregivers and guessed the identity of the thief.
After all, in this world, there were not many people who could break the enchanted barrier outside the house of the princess. In addition, her suspect had the ability to disguise herself; thus, with the wisdom of Princess Yuanyuan, she could easily guess that this person was Gu Xijiu.
It was easier for her to arrange to capture a specified target.Having borrowed magical tools from the Devil Palace, her original plan was to use the Universal Net to quickly catch Gu Xijiu and then execute her on the spot to get rid of her. Besides, she had a reason to catch her, and no one would disagree with executing someone who stole. Even if Di Fuyi learns about the situation, he would not be able to do anything by then.
