“I know you have some friendship with Wang Songtian, but today’s matter can’t be amicable.” Rufus Rhys warned coldly.
“The emperor breaks the law and the common people are equally guilty. The Su and Wang families have done many evil things and deserve to be severely punished!” Princess Elara said righteously.
She could see that Rufus Rhys was really angry. Begging for mercy at this time would not only have no effect, but would also cause him to get angry.
She is a smart person and certainly knows how to choose.
“As long as you know what’s going on.”
Rufus Rhys nodded and said no more.
At this time, a personal guard suddenly walked in, bowed and said: “Your Majesty, Mr. Su Mingchang is here.”
“Hmph! Bring him in!” Rufus Rhys said coldly.
“Yes.” The guard responded and left quickly.
Not long after, the obedient Su Mingchang was quickly brought in by his personal guards.
When he saw Princess Elara and Albert, he couldn’t help but feel uneasy for no reason.
As a princess, Princess Elara usually would not interfere in West Lucozia’s military affairs. As for the massacre of Tylerfu and the punishment in the palace, she was the evil star that no one wanted to see.
“I humble myself to pay homage to the prince.”
Su Mingchang suppressed the uneasiness in his heart, immediately knelt on the ground and bowed respectfully.
“Do you know why I called you here late at night?”
Rufus Rhys spoke coldly, with no expression on his face.
“I don’t know what my humble position is, so please let me know for sure.”
Su Mingchang lowered his head and felt increasingly uneasy.
“See for yourself!”
Rufus Rhys didn’t say anything, and directly threw a letter in his hand at Su Mingchang’s feet.
Su Mingchang picked up the letter, looked at it carefully, and his expression changed instantly.
“Your Majesty! It’s unfair!”
Su Mingchang directly started to cry out for injustice: “This, this, this… this must be slandered by someone. My son has a good personality and is loyal. How could he do such a thing of rape and robbery?”
“Good character? Loyal? Humph! You can say it out loud!” Rufus Rhys slammed the table in anger.
“Your Majesty, I don’t know where you received this news, but I can guarantee that my son is definitely a good and law-abiding citizen. This letter of report must be someone with ulterior motives deliberately sowing discord!” Su Mingchang’s way of speaking righteously.
“Su Mingchang, Su Mingchang, your ability to tell lies with open eyes is really extraordinary. You want to shirk responsibility in just a few words. Do you think I am a fool?” Rufus Rhys said solemnly.
“Your Highness, my loyalty to you is evident from heaven and earth. How could I dare to deceive you? You must not listen to the villain’s slander!” Su Mingchang looked sad and aggrieved.
“Okay, Su Mingchang! You’re still making excuses now. You’re so stubborn!”
Rufus Rhys said with a gloomy face: “To tell you the truth, I sent spies to personally investigate the letter in your hand. No one reported it. I already know the crimes your son committed!”
As soon as these words came out, Su Mingchang felt as if he was struck by lightning, and his face instantly turned pale.
He thought it was a report from a competitor that exposed his son’s crime, but he didn’t expect that it was actually the result of an investigation by a royal agent.
Now there was no room for quibbles.
“Your Majesty! It was Quanzi who got drunk and caused trouble. He was confused for a moment. For the sake of your humble duty and loyalty, please spare Quanzi a little mercy!”
Su Mingchang knelt on the ground and Bow down and rubbing head on the ground several times.
“If it weren’t for the past friendship, your Su family would have been exterminated by now!”
Rufus Rhys suddenly jumped up and slapped the case. Su Mingchang was so frightened that he almost urinated.
