Before Shangguan Wenji hadn’t spoken yet, and the Sixth Prince Shangguan Heng on the side had already taken a step forward and strongly opposed.
“Father, this must not happen! Everyone in the Jin Ling Kingdom knows that General Ouyang has done his duty to serve the Jin Ling Kingdom, and he is even more loyal to father. Now General Ouyang and his wife had just died tragically and Ouyang Haoxuan’s life and death is unknown, if we dismiss the Zhenwei Army and assign them to different armies, what will the people think of our Shangguan Family for such making immoral decision?”
“This move will make others feel disappointed. Who else will be willing to serve the royal family in the future? Will there be martial artists with outstanding talents who are willing to swear allegiance to father? Father must think twice!”
The Sixth Prince Shangguan Heng had a good relationship with Ouyang Haoxuan, even though their relationship had become quite distant when Ouyang Haoxuan’s meridians were severed.
However, now thinking that his childhood friend’s family was killed and he was still being hunted down, he felt depressed.
In addition, he and the crown prince didn’t get along well initially.
Now that the crown prince had said that he wanted to incorporate the Zhenwei Army, or even make the Zhenwei Army disappear from now on, he certainly couldn’t allow it.
The crown prince did not feel guilty when he heard the words, but he sneered, “Sixth Brother, have you forgotten that the Ouyang Family is a traitor who was convicted by father? Condemning the traitor is what it should be, how can the people feel disappointed?”
“As for the Zhenwei Army, it was originally the royal army. Could it be that after Ouyang Zhixiong led the army for a dozen years, the army should belong to the Ouyang Family? What a joke! Now that the Ouyang Family is confiscated due to the rebel, isn’t it right for me, as the crown prince, to incorporate the Zhenwei Army for father?”
Traitor! Traitor! Shangguan Qi even keeps saying that Ouyang Family is a traitor, does he feel shame at all?
The Sixth Prince’s expression became extremely gloomy, “Brother, speak frankly, don’t you know the best whether the Ouyang Family is a traitor? Moreover, everyone knew what happened at the mountain foot of the Breaking Spirit Mountain. Do you really think no one knows the real cause of death of General Ouyang and his wife?”
The crown prince flicked his sleeves, stared at the Sixth Prince, and sneered, “Sixth Brother, what do you mean by this? Back then, it was father who announced the imperial decree that the Ouyang Family is a traitor. Is Sixth Brother saying that father is incompetent?”
The Sixth Prince’s face became stiff, and he looked at Shangguan Wenji on the emperor’s throne a little nervously.
Shangguan Wenji’s face was extremely gloomy. His both hands were clutching the armrest of the emperor’s throne. The gold carving on the armrest was deeply embedded in his flesh, but he was unaware of it.
After a long time, he let out a sigh of frustration and slowly said, “Okay, stop arguing. Keep the Zhenwei Army for now. Don’t touch it for now. Don’t assign the new general for the Zhenwei Army yet. Just let Chen Guangxian, General Ouyang’s confidant lead it.”
The Six Prince was overjoyed and quickly bowed down, “Father is wise.”
The crown prince’s face distorted when he heard the words. Even if it was his father sitting on it, he couldn’t help saying loudly, “Father, what do you mean? Zhenwei Army is the army of the Ouyang family, everyone knows about this.”
“Now that father does not allow me to incorporate the Zhenwei Army, and you even let Ouyang Zhixiong’s confidant to lead the army. Is father telling the Feng Family that you’re dissatisfied of their decision? You want to seek justice for General Ouyang?”
