Is The Engagement Real? (2)

Sure enough, this general stood up and said, “Meng Liancheng, you killed the Devil King, and the evidence is in my hand!”
The regent remained silent, for he knew that the general had a lot of information about their plot. He did not hold back in releasing the material to the public.
There were all kinds of pieces of evidence that he had gathered – people, items, and even the fact that the bodyguard that served the Devil King was bought off by the regent. All the pieces proved that he had greatly wronged Gu Xijiu. It also showed the evil things that Meng Liancheng had done in the devil world all these years.
Every time he threw out something, the people would hiss in shock and disgust. By that time, no one doubted the truth anymore. The people were filled with anger and yelled openly to punish the culprit.
As for the soldiers who initially stood by the regent, at that moment, they were no longer loyal to him. Only a few were still on his side, perhaps because he had bought them over, or they were equally guilty.
Since things had developed to this extent, the regent king was obviously at a disadvantage.
To add to his misery, Yin Jiusi had suddenly emerged like a king out of the blue. He looked at the thousands of people in the area and said calmly, “The regent has done so many bad things to the people of the Devil Kingdom, and many of you have not been fully informed. Since you are the soldiers of the devil world, obeying his command was your duty, and there is nothing wrong with that. From this moment on, except for the few main culprits who had staged this entire plot, if you want to stay here, you will still be welcomed. I will not punish you for your past!”
Then, he ordered his people to take out a basket of papers and said, “This paperwork has been collected for me when I was investigating your crimes. I haven’t read them, but I will burn them and solve your worries as long as you can continue to do your best for the development of our devil world and be faithful to the country. In fact, I will still reward you for your service!”
He flicked his fingers, and the papers began to burn rapidly. By doing so, he was giving those who were originally loyal to the regent a second chance, assuming they were not directly involved in his evil plots. Those who were given a second chance cheered and ran behind Yin Jiusi.
In just that short period of time, the regent found that only dozens of people continued to surround him. Obviously, the situation was no longer favorable to them if he wanted to go to war.
These dozens of people were the confidants of the regent. Their hands were full of blood too, and they could no longer look back. They only thing they could do was have one last fight, though it was obvious how that would go down under these circumstances.
In the end, the regent and the dozens of people around him were killed on the spot. The angry soldiers even killed the young princess.
Meng Wuya took the opportunity to dive into the Soulless River and disappeared in an instant, while Yin Jiusi became the next Devil King once he showed the people his true caliber.
Of course, the power struggle in the imperial court was an intricate matter that he had to deal with. He still needed to put in a lot of effort to stabilize his position.
Eventually, everything was basically solved, but everyone was still curious about one matter. Some ministers couldn’t help but ask on behalf of the rest of the people, “Divine Lord, are you really engaged to National Master Di?”
Gu Xijiu was stunned by the question, and before she could say anything, Fan Qianshi spoke up, “Stupid! My master is the God of Creation! Do you know how noble her identity is? Will she be so free to engage with other people so simply? She had done this just to facilitate the investigation of Meng Liancheng. She had to disguise herself to make it real. It is definitely not true!”
Gu Xijiu remained silent. She was really doing this as a temporary agenda, but it was not to resolve the affairs of the devil world but to influence Fan Qianshi to stop going after her. When Fan Qianshi said these words, he was looking at Gu Xijiu to see how she would respond.
He looked calm on the outside, and his lips were even curved upward with a smile, but there was a panic in his eyes that could not be hidden.
