Shanguan City is a border city of West Lucozia, and it is also the territory of Pingyang Marquis Cornelius Ao.
Cornelius Ao was a military general. He fought with King Rufus Rhys of West Lucozia for many years and made numerous meritorious deeds. He was later named Marquis of Pingyang and guarded the border for West Lucozia.
Over the years, I have been working hard.
At this time, a black business car suddenly stopped at the entrance of Pingyang Hou Mansion.
The car door opened, and Dustin, Thorian Rhys and others stepped out one after another.
“Brother, this is the residence of Pingyang Marquis Cornelius Ao.”
Thorian Rhys briefly introduced: “Cornelius Ao is also considered loyal and brave. He has managed Shanguan City for many years and has always done his duty.”
“Who is sneaking around outside?!”
The two guards guarding the door of the Hou Mansion quickly noticed something unusual and shouted immediately.
Thorian Rhys stepped forward first, showed his badge, and said calmly: “I am the second son of the King of West Lucozia, Thorian Rhys.”
When the two guards saw the waist tag, they were so frightened that they immediately fell to their knees.
“Everyone, please get up. No need to be polite.”
Thorian Rhys took back his badge and said, “I have urgent matters now. I want to meet with Cornelius Hou. I would like to ask you two to come in and let me know.”
“Little prince, wait a moment, I will report to the marquis right away!”
One of the guards responded and immediately ran into the Hou Mansion.
Not long after, a middle-aged man with a big belly, dressed in fine clothes, came out with a few followers.
The person who came was none other than Cornelius Ao, the Marquis of Pingyang.
“Junior has met Uncle Cornelius!”
Thorian Rhys took the initiative to step forward and salute.
Although he was the second son of the West Lucozia King, the person in front of him was a conferred prince, so his status was naturally higher than his.
It is already a great honor for the other party to go out to greet him.
“Thorian, why are you here in the middle of the night?” Cornelius Ao was a little surprised.
“Uncle Cornelius, something happened in the palace and we need your help.” Thorian Rhys looked serious.
“An incident occurred in the palace? What happened?” Cornelius Ao frowned slightly.
Thorian Rhys didn’t speak, just glanced left and right.
“Come on, please come inside. Let’s sit down and take our time.”
Cornelius Ao quickly understood and quickly invited Thorian Rhys and others in. Finally, he moved to the main hall and retreated, leaving only a few confidants present.
“Thorian, can you say something now?” Cornelius Ao asked tentatively.
“Uncle Cornelius, this is what happened…”
Thorian Rhys did not hide anything and told the story in detail.
After hearing this, Cornelius Ao couldn’t help but change his expression: “What? The prince was assassinated? And four of the eight princes want to rebel?”
“That’s right.” Thorian Rhys nodded seriously.
“When I first heard the news about the prince’s assassination, I thought it was a rumor, but I didn’t expect it to be true.” Cornelius Ao frowned, his expression a bit ugly.
Once Rufus Rhys dies, a major earthquake will occur throughout West Lucozia.
“Uncle Cornelius, the current situation in the palace is not optimistic. Please help!”
Thorian Rhys stood up and bowed deeply.
“Your father is kind to me. Naturally, I can’t just sit idly by when things like this happen. Whatever you need me to do, just ask.” Cornelius Ao said simply.
“Okay! As long as Uncle Cornelius is willing to help, the palace will definitely be able to overcome the difficulties!” Thorian Rhys breathed a sigh of relief, and at the same time told him his plan in detail.
