In the Boll Family’s courtyard in the eastern suburb, almost all the upper class people of the Fallen Angel Empire including the empress were present. When Zall saw the huge crowd at the palace hall in front of him, his complexion was pale gray just like his father, the patriarch of the Mishan Family.
“Your Majesty, Lawson has been brought here now. Please punish him, Your Majesty.” Stiller grabbed Lawson and came to Shea. After visiting the hell gate for a few rounds, Lawson finally did not pass out. He walked toward Shea tremblingly and saluted.
Shea glanced at Lawson lightly, “Free the envoy immediately.”
“Envoy?” When Lawson heard that the man in cloak also said this word, he seemed to think of something. However, Zola’s appearance caused him to experience the emotional ups and downs of great joy and sadness, so his mind was full of chaos.
Stiller, who had always been calm, was anxious. She slapped his favorite grandson, “Did all of you kidnap the Dark Shadow Empire’s envoy, Ms. Celine, to this place?”
Lawson was awakened by this slap in the face. The noble temperament of the girl with a towering chest from the Princess Villa appeared in his mind. He was shocked and sweated suddenly. The girl who was with Marlene… The girl whom I liked… The first-class “prey” is actually… the envoy of the Dark Shadow Empire?
Lawson finally understood why even Her Majesty Empress would come in person. His first feeling after realizing the fact was fear: As everyone knows, the Dark Shadow Empire Army is gathering on the border of the Fallen Angel Empire and they are ready to attack. At this terrible moment, kidnapping the Dark Shadow Empire envoy here in an attempt to… Before Lawson could speak, a voice sounded, “Your Majesty, this time Zall and Lawson did kidnap a few girls from the Princess Villa with bad intentions. Is Envoy Celine among them?”
It was Diak, Lawson and Zall’s “accomplice”, who spoke. A woman with a mask and cloak beside Shea stood up, “Your Majesty, Diak is from the secret intelligence department.”
Secret intelligence department! Zall and Lawson shook at the same time with disbelief gazes in their eyes. “Aguile” said, “If it weren’t for Diak’s secret marking, I wouldn’t be able to get here so quickly.”
The strained heart of the royal family’s Demon Overlord, Disjaro, finally relaxed. Diak was his nephew. He was worried about causing a catastrophic disaster. He didn’t expect that Diak had become a hero in the darkest hour instead.
Many people focused their attention on the woman in cloak who didn’t show her true face. This woman should be the head of “the Dark Demon” who took over the secret intelligence department from the Toro Family.
“Dark Demon” was once the mysterious leader of the Dark Moon which used to spy on the intel and assassination tasks. The methods were extremely clever. Even the capital’s secret intelligence department couldn’t help but send Sarandi and others to the Dark Moon to destroy the Dark Demon. As a result, they were annihilated entirely instead.
Diak respectfully said, “Your Majesty, those girls are being held in the back room. They are poisoned by the smoke with the ecstasy attribute.
My subordinate, Sulfur, had sneaked in long ago. He killed those watchers and protected them secretly.
When everyone heard him, they were all relaxed. No matter what happened, the envoy was not in danger.
Shea calmed down and nodded, “Diak, you did a great job!”
“Her Majesty, when Sir Aguile broke into the courtyard previously, I had received a signal from Sulfur that he was detoxifying the young ladies. They will probably recover in a few minutes.”
“Aguile, take someone to the back now to respond and assist in the treatment, then clear out the irrelevant people.” After receiving the news that the envoy was unharmed, Shea’s expression eased a lot, “Diak, tell us everything that happened in the Princess Villa. Why was the envoy being kidnapped? What’s the inside story of this incident?”
Diak glanced at the 2 “companions” who were full of hatred and fear. He replied, “From the beginning of the unscrupulous troublemaking to the garrison guard team framing Lilu, to the final instigation of wine customers to beat, smash, rob and burn, it was all planned by Mishan Family’s Zall. Lawson and I witnessed this good show on the sidelines and can be regarded as “accomplices.” After the Princess Villa was devastated, Zall invited me to capture Lilu’s sister, Marlene, to play with. He also promised Lawson and me some benefit. Since I was alone and unable to stop it, I had to pretend to agree to join. I followed Zall to Moon VIP Room No. 1 where there were several women. Zall’s men were met with strong resistance. They later knocked the girls off by releasing the poisonous smoke. I initially thought that it was just the Mishan Family’s conspiracy against the Princess Villa. I left the secret intelligence department’s mark all the way, then I tried to delay the time until Sir Aguile broke into the courtyard. That was when I realized that it involves the Dark Shadow Empire’s envoy, Ms. Celine.”
Shea slightly lowered her head while Stiller secretly rejoiced. Judging from Diak’s description, Lawson was not the mastermind. She knew that this grandson had a lot of spoiled and arrogant mischief, but he would definitely not be involved in a scheme like “subverting the empire”. However, Lawson’s biggest trouble was that he recklessly offended the super powerhouse, Zola.
At this time, a group of people came out from the back room. Standing at the front was the missing Dark Shadow Empire’s envoy, Celine. When Lawson saw the girl with a towering chest whom he coveted, his heart sank and panicked again. The most worrying matter finally happened.
Celine learned about the situation from “Aguile” in advance. She came to Shea and saluted, “Celine is overwhelmed that Your Majesty came to the rescue in person.”
“Ms. Celine, you have been wronged.” Shea sighed, “What happened is a shame for the capital and also a shame for the Fallen Angel Empire. On behalf of the empire, I would like to express my sincerest apologies to you.”
Your Majesty is too serious.” Celine shook her head and said, “Her Majesty eliminated Obsidian and newly ascended the throne for less than 1 month. It is inevitable that there will be remnants left who want to use a scheme to destroy the peace between the 2 empires. Speaking of which, I neglected the safety protection due to my eagerness to meet with a good friend this time. It is my responsibility. How can I accept Your Majesty’s apology?
Celine’s remarks gave Shea a good reason to be excused. As a diplomatic envoy, there was nothing wrong with it. However, the phrase “the remnant remains left and the scheme to destroy the peace between the 2 empires” suddenly escalated the nature of the matter to the highest level of contradiction.
Shea justifiably became the empress as she was recognized by the artifact. The former regent was identified as an “empire usurper.” Therefore, the remnant party of Obsidian was the traitors recognized by the empire whom everyone condemned.
Angley’s face became even more unsightly. Zall knelt down hastily without a second thought, “Your Majesty, I’m just being used by others to destroy the Princess Villa’s business. I don’t even know the identity of Madam Envoy. I absolutely have no other intention!”
Shea asked coldly, “Used by others?”
“It’s Plinton! He has a very huge responsibility for the explosion of the wine cellar in the eastern suburb last night. He wanted to frame the Princess Villa to cover up his crimes. I was just misled by him!” Zall was quite quick-witted. At this moment, a small potato like Damond was definitely not enough to sacrifice, so he must find a scapegoat and the most suitable one was Plinton.
Angley secretly breathed a sigh of relief. His son’s tone coincided with what he had previously said in the palace hall. Plinton, the pawn, must be discarded. Blame all crimes on Plinton, then we will strive to minimize the consequences of the matter.
“As for Lilu’s younger sister Marlene, I admit that I do have an interest in her. This time I wanted to take her away amidst the chaos, but madam envoy…” Zall really deserved to be the leader of the “4 young masters” as his performance at critical moments was much better than Lawson. He first confessed his smallest sin, then he pointed to Lawson, “It’s Lawson! He intended to be unruly to madam envoy, which madam envoy can testify!”
Lawson was nearly out of breath when he heard Zall blamed it on him, “Zall, you bastard, it’s obviously you…”
“Stop…!” Shea turned her gaze on Celine for consultation, “Ms. Celine, is that true?”
Celine’s eyes flashed sharply when she glanced at Lawson, “This person indeed has ill-intention toward me and uttered foul language, but the specific scheme or inside story behind it is unknown. This is the Fallen Angel Empire. I’m just a guest. Everything is up to Your Majesty.”
Celine’s words were very skillful. She did not deny Lawson’s bad behavior, nor did she put the blame on Lawson alone because of resentment. The last sentence of “the guest follows the host” was actually putting pressure on Shea as an envoy.
“I initially planned to discuss cooperation matters with both envoys today. I didn’t expect such an accident would happen. It seems that the negotiation can only be postponed until tomorrow. Ms. Celine has suffered trauma, please go back to the Royal Hotel to rest first, so as not to affect the official business. As for what happened today… please rest assured, I will definitely give you an explanation.” Shea also utilized the most important matter of the negotiation to offset Celine’s offense. The ministers secretly praised her while listening on the side. This matter was related to the Fallen Angel. Empire’s internal affairs, it was indeed inappropriate to let Celine stay here.
Stiller clenched her fist as another wisp of blood oozed from her mouth. Her eyes were full of haze. If Lawson is involved in the scheme to destroy the Princess Retail Store previously, it’s still fine. If Zola is offended, I can also beg Shea to mediate. However, now he has screwed up completely. This is no longer a matter of Lawson’s personal life and death, it is directly related to the survival of the Boll Family.
Celine finally showed a smile on her tight face as she bowed slightly. Just as she was about to signal the guard to leave, Chen Rui stepped forward and whispered a few words to Shea. Shea’s face suddenly changed, and the people nearby felt a hint of chill.
Shea’s furious gaze stopped for a while on the face of “Ms. Dark Demon”, then she looked at the group of women who were taken out from the back room. She shouted, “Alice! Come out right now!”
Disjaro and others were taken aback. Alice? Royal Highness Little Princess?
Behind a tall female guard, a blonde girl stood up timidly. This girl was beautiful. Her big watery purple eyes made her look lively. The Demon Overlords who came back from the Dark Moon recognized her. The girl was Empress Shea’s younger sister, Alice. Lucifer.
Seeing this young girl, Zall, who was secretly proud of diverting the disaster to Lawson and the Boll family, was stunned as if he was knocked off with a stick: Isn’t she the one I… wanted to enjoy? She is actually the Little Princess!
The empress’ most beloved and only sister?
Zall suddenly recalled that the girl said before she fell into a coma in the Princess Villa, “I am a princess.” At that time, Diak continued the sentence as “Princess Retail Store.” It made him think that this girl was just a new person in the Princess Retail Store. I never thought she is a real princess!
By the way, Princess Alice seems to have… blue eyes, why are they purple now?! In an instant, Zall thought of many things, and his cold sweat broke out uncontrollably.
TL: Now, it’s time for Shea to establish her authority. What will she decide?
