The Revelation (2)

Gu Xijiu’s teleportation gave her a massive edge. “What are you afraid of? I have heard some parts of the conversation with my own ears. Are you too timid to admit your fault?”
The Monster King said nothing.
“Yao Xingye, don’t you panic just yet. There is more.” Yang Jintian mocked him before playing the next clip. This time, it was between a man and a woman.
The voice of the woman actually belonged to Yao Tingting, the Monster Princess. Di Fuyi was the man in the clip. The conversation happened in the prison cell not long ago.
The people were outraged even further by her crimes. Each year, the number of missing people would escalate to an unprecedented high, which included many gentlemen and ladies from some of the most powerful families.
Many of them turned to the Monster King for help. He promised them to investigate the matter, and in return, he pointed them arrows to foreign people of other kingdoms. The Animal Kingdom, the Celestial Kingdom, and even the Underworld had all been accused.
The accusation also marked the beginning of many wars, thus losing more lives. To their surprise, Yao Tingting was the one who was solely responsible for all of the crimes. Even more to their disbelief, their loved ones had suffered inhumane torment before their demise.
Most of the Monster King’s closest guards had lost their loved ones. The Monster King vowed in fervor to avenge the fallen by attacking another kingdom, which he accused of committing the crime. In return for the king’s favor, these men pledged their loyalty to him.
Now that the truth was revealed, these armed men finally realized the Monster King’s selfish intentions.It was never about revenge. They were only used as his ponds to conquer more territory.
“Fake! It is all made up!” Yao Xingye watched as his guards and men lost faith in him by distancing themselves.
Panicked, he turned the facts around and denied all of his doings. He pointed at the Celestial Officer and accused him of making up stories.
“Aren’t you going to admit any of your doings?” A gentle voice from the red sedan responded. The curtain was pushed away, thus revealing a woman in red who slowly emerged from within.
Her eyebrows were perfectly arched, giving her face an edgy touch. She had a stern look on her face as she gazed into the distance. Her red dress was beautifully draped onto her slim and slender figure. With every step, she moved with elegance.
The woman was a rare beauty, with unparalleled looks and effortless grace. She let her hair down, but that did not shelter her pointy ears that were sharply edged. At her back, nine fox tails could be seen swaying gently.
Gu Xijiu gasped in astonishment as soon as she realized that the woman was actually the Nine-Tailed Fox from the Tushan family. She roughly recalled that Tushan family used to rule the Monster Kingdom before she became dormant. Things changed when she woke up as the territory now belonged to the Flood Dragons.
Her brief research revealed that the Tushan family was banished and killed overnight, about 30 centuries ago. Yao Xingye, of the Flood Dragon family, used to be the greatest guardian of the Fox King. He made solemn promises, committing to seek revenge for the Tushan family after that murderous night and initiated a series of investigations that linked him all the way to the Animal Kingdom. He then led a group of warriors to fight with the enemies and killed the murderers. With great success, came his throne as the Monster King, as he took over the Tushan family.
The Tushan family held a respected name in the Monster Kingdom, known publicly as the royal family. If they were not banished, Yao Xingye would never have become the king. Hence, he skillfully courted the people by appealing to the search for the descendants of the Tushan family.
Just when everyone thought that the Tushan family no longer existed, the beauty made a surprise entrance that took everyone’s breath away. The Fox family was naturally born with an irresistible charm, even more so with the woman’s attractive beauty. She entered with great vigor as if an empress that had come to rule.
In awe, the audience of the square fell to their knees. Meanwhile, Yao Xingye could no longer contain the surge of his anxiety. He had been trying to kill every survivor of the massacre of the Tushan family. He thought he had killed them all, but he was wrong.
The woman gazed at Yao Xingye and said, “Yao Xingye, you defied the king and started a rebellion to end the lives of the Tushan family. We shall talk about this later. By the way, didn’t you say that the clips were all made up? Let me show you what I have brought today to prove you wrong.”
She took out a pile of documents with clear indications of all the people that died in the hands of Yao Tingting, including the details of their death. These papers were spread amongst the crowd so that everyone could see the proofs. Also, she had witnesses available. She waved her hand to signal the entrance of a group of servants.
These people had all served Yao Tingting before, so they had all witnessed her murderous acts. At a loss for words, the Monster King did not prepare for the detailed revelation that left him completely speechless.
Most of the people were already boiling with fury and frustration. If it were not for the Monster King’s kung fu, they would have already attacked him.
At this point, Yao Xingye knew that his reign had passed. He took a swift leap into the air and made a jump towards the blue sedan chair. “Tian Mowen, show yourself!”
A strike was launched mid-air, and since the Monster King’s strength was unstoppable, the attack was certainly destructive. Other than Gu Xijiu, no one else would able to withstand the strike. Nonetheless, Gu Xijiu was too distracted by Fan Qianshi. When she saw the attack being launched, it was already too late for her to change anything.
She thought that Di Fuyi would not be powerful enough to defend himself. The worst that could happen would be seeing the sedan being shattered into pieces, along with the man.
The Monster King went in with full force, only to be stopped right before the sedan.
The blue sedan remained in one piece. Yao Xingye, on the other hand, was the one who suffered the impact. He staggered and moved back in retreat, not long before he spat out a mouthful of blood.
He steadied himself and looked at the sedan in clear defiance. “Tian Mowen, what have you done to me?”
The curtains were pushed aside, allowing the man to walk out of the sedan. He was wearing a set of plain white robes, equipped with a mask of ghostly features to cover his face. The mask was able to conceal his identity, but not his otherworldly aura. His powerful presence would leave an unforgettable impression on anyone.
The Monster King’s followers were the first ones to recognize the man. He was the Celestial Officer who recently emerged as an important figure, Tian Mowen.
The man was not entirely friendly. He sometimes behaved differently, so no one dared to get too close to him. However, he was not intimidating. Hence, the people of the Monster Kingdom were not afraid of him. Occasionally, they would even put him in trouble on purpose just to test him.
Things had changed as the man was now equipped with unprecedented power. Certainly, his grace had also managed to capture the attention of many women.
Gu Xijiu silently judged him. This man came with many different identities. As far as she was concerned, the man was referred to as Feng Jiayi or Di Fuyi. But now, he was Tian Mowen. She could no longer tell which one was real.
She took a look at Di Fuyi and then looked back to the foxy woman. Apparently, they were a team. Even without any proof, Gu Xijiu already knew that this was all but a great plan that Di Fuyi had come up with to set the Monster King in a trap. Each and every arrangement was carefully planned.
He made an appearance with the foxy woman of the Tushan Family because he needed to help her rebuild her family’s royal legacy.
Gu Xijiu had, once again, unknowingly contributed to a small part of his great plan. She took her contribution as a favor for his kindness in saving her and her servant’s lives.
From now on, it would only be natural for the foxy woman to regain her title as the heir to the throne. On the other hand, Yao Xingye had completely fallen into the trap that Di Fuyi had set up for him, so there was nothing he could do in his defense. Defeated, he was caught and held captive.
The great revelation was a show that Gu Xijiu thoroughly enjoyed. However, with nothing left for her to see, she decided to leave with Fan Qianshi.
