“It would be tough for anyone to provide evidence of their absence. Are they all the culprits? Thirdly, I was not missing. I was kidnapped and brought to the Soulless River. Fourthly, the words of the guard could be a lie. The man could have easily been bribed to provide false evidence and blame me! As for the hairpin, I did lose a hairpin over the past few days. As it is worthless, I did not bother to look for it, and now it seems someone with ulterior motives is using it against me. I would assume that the man stole it and is using it to frame me. Last but not least, I have to explain that I did not have any motive to kill the Devil King!”
She argued with rationale, and the regent was choked by her comments for a moment.
“Nonsense!” The young princess screamed in anger. “You must have motives. The Devil King once wanted to arrange a marriage for me with the National Master. I am sure that you wanted to rebel against it. National Master Di must be thinking the same too. He wanted to do everything possible to find you and catch you!”
Gu Xijiu laughed as she looked at Di Fuyi and asked, “You searched for me because of this?!
Di Fuyi stepped forward step, “It is not her who murdered the Devil King! The reason why I have not been explaining in the past few days is that I knew that she was in your hands. I was afraid that you all would act disadvantageously toward her, so I have not exposed you all. Now that she is safe, then I have nothing to hide. Do you all want to find out the identity of the real murderer of the Devil King? All the truths are here.”
He took out a light blue snail recorder, opened it, and there was a dialogue between many people inside.It was the original conversation recorded in the regent’s secret room the other day. Everyone’s voice was distinct to the point where any ministers who were slightly familiar with them could distinguish their respective voices.
Those gathered around the Soulless River were not only high-ranking officials but also the ordinary people from the Devil Kingdom. They, too, heard the conversation very clearly.
Once the snail recorder played for a moment, the facial expression of the regent and his men all changed! Even Meng Wuya’s handsome face turned pale.
“Fake! This is fake!” The regent yelled as he denied everything. “It must be that someone wanted to frame me and made this fake snail recorder…”
The ministers that were loyal to him naturally did not admit as well. However, regardless of how they denied, the people did not buy it. After all, the voices they heard were clear and evident. Furthermore, no one had seen a manipulated snail recorder before.
For so many years, the regent held the political ruling, and the Devil King had been suppressed under his control. But after Di Fuyi came, the Devil King stopped listening to the regent. They also had a big quarrel in the Jinluan Hall. Almost everyone knew about this incident. Therefore, it was not surprising if the regent planned to kill the Devil King.
What’s more, since the death of the Devil King, the regent kept urging the people to appoint a new king. He said, “the country can’t be a day without a king” to get the youngest son of the Devil King, who was three years old, to be the new king. However, it was Di Fuyi, who argued that they should seek revenge for the Devil King first before getting a new king and refuted his proposal.
Since Di Fuyi carried a high status and was deeply loved by the people, his words carried a lot of weight. Together with other courtiers’ consent to Di Fuyi’s plan, the regent had to agree with him.
