“Is that all?”
Yang Jian blinked in disbelief. He asked Chang Er, “Then how would Your Highness explain these words on the jade platform?”
Chang Er was so angry that she stopped in her tracks. “I told you, I don’t know! I don’t know!”
‘Is Yang Jian crazy? Why would he insist that I caused my husband’s death?
Yang Jian took a deep breath and shook his head. “If that’s the case, then I’m sorry, Your Highness. I have the right to detain you in prison while we investigate this matter.”
Yang Jian glanced around the room; he looked like he was filled with evil spirits—his cold voice permeated the room. “The law must be obeyed, nonetheless. His Majesty’s death is a significant matter. We have all received grace from His Majesty, so all of you must support my decision.
Having received the grace from His Majesty in the past, you must be clear and support my decision. I’ll kill whoever disobeys my command!”
In his last sentence, a powerful breath of aura broke out from Yang Jian and swept across the audience.
Everyone sucked in a mouthful of cold air; they were displeased.
Yang Jian was called the Grandmaster Erlang, and Emperor Hou Yi gave him the title of the Invincible General. He had a lofty status in North Moana, and he was very powerful. Who dared to provoke him when he was that serious?
At the same time, Darryl swallowed his saliva nervously. He was so shocked; he was speechless.
Just as one expected from Grandmaster Erlang, his domineering attitude was terrifying. It was rumored that Yang Jian never tolerated the slightest mistake. As long as he thought it was right, he would do everything he could to persist. He even dared to put Chang Er in prison. It seemed like there was some truth to that rumor.
Chang Er was so shocked that she trembled and pointed at Yang Jian. She was so angry that she was speechless.
‘Yang Jian is too bold. Not only did he slander me having a relationship with Zhu Bajie, but he also wants to imprison me?’
E Lai roared, “You’ve slandered and disrespected the Empress, and now you’re trying to make a move? I’ll kill you, you rebellious traitor!”
E Lai’s eyes flashed with anger as he charged at Yang Jian!
Everyone was stunned at what had happened!
‘F*ck! Are they going to fight?’
At the same time, Darryl was very excited.
He wondered if he could try to escape when a fight broke out.
“A brave man, but very simple-minded!”
Yang Jian did not cringe, even as E Lai attacked him. He merely snorted; his internal energy surged, and he gripped his Tri-point Double-edged Saber tightly to greet E Lai’s attack!
The Tri-point Double-edged Saber collided with the giant hammers. Everyone heard that world-shattering noise that shook the room violently. Then, they saw E Lai stumbled a few steps backward!
A streak of blood oozed from the corner of his mouth.
Even though E Lai was known for his bravery, Yang Jian had the upper hand.
After all, he was the famous Grandmaster Erlang; E Lai was not his match.
Everyone gasped when E Lai took that blow.
No one was surprised that Grandmaster Erlang could injure E Lai with a single blow.
Chang Er shuddered and exclaimed loudly. E Lai had protected her for so many years, and she appreciated his loyalty. She almost lost it when she saw how he suffered the blow!
Chang Er stared at Yang Jian coldly. “Yang Jian, you are too bold. You even dared to attack my people! Come here, and I won’t move. Come and put me in prison!”
She stood protectively in front of E Lai.
“Lady Chang Er!”
The man was touched and furious. As a subordinate, how could he let Chang Er protect him?
E Lai roared and went around Chang Er. Then, he charged toward Yang Jian again!
Yang Jian snorted coldly; he was lighting fast. He raised his palm and then sent another attack at E Lai!
That attack was like thunder, and the burly E Lai was like a kite with a broken string. His body was sent more than ten meters backward; he spouted several mouthfuls of blood.
