“That’s right! His opinion can only represent himself. We…”
“What are you afraid of? In the time it takes to burn one stick of incense, Prince Qin’s troops will arrive. At that time, the entire Sheng Jing city will belong to Prince Qin. Why are you afraid of a mere Hua Qi pill? Officials, I hope you will think about this clearly. When the troops come and you stand on the wrong team, then don’t blame me for not reminding you. After all, the consequences…”
The official hasn’t even finished his words of loyalty to Liu Yue yet when one of the officials from Prince Qin’s side had blurted that out.
After listening to what the official from Prince Qin’s side had said, the officials who were planning on swearing the loyalty to Liu Yue became silent. They turned to look at each other.
At this moment, Yelu Ji, whose mute acupuncture point was pressed, still laid paralyzed on the chair. He glanced at Liu Yue from the corner of his eyes. His gaze no longer showed the fear from before, instead, it showed arrogance and pride.
Yelu Ji mouth moved but no sound came out as he said, “Make your move and kill me! I’m not afraid of you. Today, I will definitely win!” After he finished saying that, he started to laugh hysterically.
His silent laughter horrified everyone.
Ouyang Yu Fei cut the roasted lamb in front of him. He smiled as he ate a bite of mutton meat and said, “Nothing is absolute in this world. Until things have proceeded to the last second, don’t jinx it.”
Saying up to this, he threw his knife away and stood up. While facing Liu Yue, he said in a loud voice, “Ten days ago, General Han Fei, General Kuo Bali, and General Tuo Bimu began leading 400,000 troops towards Sheng Jing. By nightfall, they will definitely reach Sheng Jing and help the Regent subdue the armed rebels.”
Ouyang Yu Fei’s voice wasn’t loud. But what he had said had clearly entered the ears of everyone present. Although his voice was light, the impact of the news was explosive.
The officials that were present once again glanced at each other in dismay. This was the most the officials had ever communicate and looked at their colleagues in their entire lifetime.
Everyone was shocked by Ouyang Yu Fei’s news. If Liu Yue really has 400,000 troops marching here, then, how could Prince Qin’s 100,000 troops even compare?
Whether who loses and who wins, what else could be changed?
How can this be? All of a sudden, she became extremely difficult to deal with. It seemed as if she didn’t prepare anything out in the open. Yet in secret, she had prepared such a killing move.
Liu Yue is truly difficult to deal with, she could remain calm and collected while facing everything.
