Tosh was an idiot. Had all those years of guarding the borders made him stupid? He had arrested the real Prince Consort.
At the same time, the Empress and Quincy shuddered as well; they were shocked.
However, the Empress was quite delighted.
Quincy’s expression, on the other hand, was ice cold. She could not hide the embarrassment, rage, and apprehension in her heart.
Tosh was stunned; his mind was filled with questions.
What had happened? Why did the Empress and the officials look at the man like that?
Was he really the Prince Consort?
Tosh’s heart started to beat faster; he was nervous.
Someone amongst the officials chuckled and said, “What is with you? How can you arrest the Prince Consort and say that he is a spy?”
Many of the officials looked and smiled ambiguously at Tosh.
Tosh felt as if he had been struck by lightning. He was utterly baffled. He looked at Darryl in a daze—he was speechless and filled with fear.
The man was their Prince Consort? The hero of the World Universe, the Sect Master of Elysium Gate, Darryl Darby?
The Empress snapped back to her senses. She looked at Tosh silently. “What is going on? This man is Darryl Darby. I appointed him as our Prince Consort. Why did you say he was a spy?”
Her voice was not loud, but it was suffocatingly authoritative.
Tosh sweated profusely. He immediately knelt and said, “Your Majesty, this is a mistake—my careless mistake.”
Then, Tosh immediately turned to Darryl. He looked guilty as he said, “Prince Consort, I must be blind. I’m sorry if I’ve offended you; please don’t take it to heart, and please forgive me this time.”
Tosh was a general, and he had a high status. If it were anybody else, he would not apologize so humbly to them.
However, Darryl was different. He was the Prince Consort, a title appointed by the Empress, and he was Princess Long’s man. He would answer only to one person. How could he not apologize to him?
Then, Tosh stepped forward quickly to untie Darryl.
“General Tosh, you don’t have to be so nervous.” Darryl flexed his wrists. He smiled and said, “Those who are ignorant should not be blamed.”
“Thank you so much for your generosity.” Tosh wiped the sweat on his forehead; he was extremely thankful.
Quincy walked forward slowly. She frowned and said, “You don’t have to apologize to him. We’re currently in a tense situation with the North Moana Army; it is your job to be stringent about whoever enters the city. Even if you captured the wrong person, you were just doing your job. So where is the mistake?”
Tosh smiled and nodded, but he wondered about that. ‘What is going on?’
It seemed like Princess Long and the Prince Consort did not get along well. He had mistakenly arrested the Prince Consort, but Princess Long was not angry; she even defended him.
Darryl smiled and said, “Princess, I haven’t seen you in a few days; how are you?”
A few days ago, Quincy had led a group of envoys to Westrington to sign an alliance treaty. Darryl had teased her purposely and even forced her to call him hubby.
Darryl was highly pleased when he thought about that.
Quincy blushed as she yelled, “Darryl, stop trying to get close to me. From now onward, you are no longer the Prince Consort.”
Quincy could not hide the contempt she felt on her gorgeous face; she was embarrassed and angry.
Darryl had used his powers as the Westrington Emperor to force her to call him hubby—it was despicable of him.
Darryl felt extremely awkward. He smiled bitterly, but he said nothing.
The officers were in an uproar.
What had happened?
Did Princess Long want to call off her marriage with Darryl Darby?
