Chapter 823: Acted against the Imperial Decree and Committed Treason
“However, Ouyang Zhixiong suddenly conspired to treason, and the crime is unforgivable. Although I can’t bear it, I have no choice but to punish the traitor. Now Ouyang Zhixiong is dead, the 100,000 Zhenwei Army has no leader, so I named my son, Shangguan Qi, as the new general of the Zhenwei Army. He will have full authority of handling the reorganization of the Zhenwei Army!”
The eunuch’s voice was sharp as if it was torturing their eardrums.
After reading this imperial decree, the expressions of Chen Guang and Shiwan Zhenwei Army changed drastically. Everyone had an incredibly sad look on their faces, staring fiercely at the eunuch and his imperial decree.
After the eunuch finished reading, Chen Guang finally couldn’t help but stepped forward and smashed the eunuch’s face with a heavy punch.
The eunuch was caught off guard. He screamed in pain, and he rolled down from the mountain like a spinning top.
However, before the eunuch stood up, the soldiers standing in the front row angrily rushed over and severely chopped down at him with the swords in their hands.
In the blink of an eye, the eunuch who dreamed that he was going to rise to the top became a bloody corpse.
By the time he died, he didn’t even think about it. I obviously should have enjoyed happiness after all the hardships; I will have enormous power in the future. Why would I end up like this?
Shangguan Qi didn’t expect such a thing to happen at all. The guards behind him didn’t expect it either; they were stunned on the spot and speechless.
When he recovered, he immediately pointed at Chen Guangda and cursed, “Chen Guang, what are you doing? Do you guys want to act against the imperial decree and commit treason?”
“You said we commit treason?!” Chen Guang’s eyes were red, and he stared at Shangguan Qi fiercely, saying sternly, “Then treat us as committing treason! Anyway, General Ouyang has been loyal to your family throughout his life, wasn’t he still being condemned for betraying the kingdom by you guys!”
As soon as Chen Guang spoke, the whole valley was shaking by it!
“Treason it is then, will I be afraid of you!”
“We want to seek justice for General Ouyang!!”
“That damn eunuch deserved to die!!”
“Everyone who insults General Ouyang deserves to die!!!”
Shangguan Qi never expected that he rushed to the barracks with great ambition, but what he got was such a result.
This… what is going on in the Zhenwei Army? Do they really only recognize Ouyang Zhixiong and not the royal family?!
Damn, I knew we should have controlled the power of the Ouyang Family, but that damn old fool, Shangguan Wenji, wouldn’t listen to me!
The rage of a hundred thousand people was terrifying. In addition, Shangguan Qi’s cultivation was not high. As the powerful murderous intent was released, he couldn’t even stand still.
Shangguan Qi took a deep breath, he immediately put a smile on his face, and said with a gentle tone: “General Chen, don’t get angry. The imperial edict is just a situation. General Ouyang is a loyal minister and good general. Who in Jin Ling Kingdom doesn’t know that. However, you have to understand the hardships of me and my father. The Feng Family forces us tightly, and they are still hunting Ouyang Haoxuan in the city now.”
“In order to find Ouyang Haoxuan, they even wanted to come and destroy your entire Zhenwei Army. My father and I made such a plan because we want to protect the Zhenwei Army. To be incorporated and disbanded, isn’t it better than being destroyed by the Feng Family? Don’t you think so? Even if General Ouyang knew about it, he wouldn’t want his army to end up like this, right?”
The remarks of Prince Shangguan Qi had used the stick and the carrot, finally calming the emotion of Chen Guang and the soldiers.
But Chen Guang still showed a cold face, not giving a good face to the crown prince. He said coldly, “I’m sorry, I’m afraid we can’t follow this decree of crown prince and the emperor?”
