Gu Xijiu was impressed with Rong Che's acting skills. He was indeed the best actor she had seen. He was crying as he reported the incident. It seemed like he was trying to stay composed, yet he could not help but to shed some tears a couple of times. The tears ran down his face from the corner of his eyes.
Seeing him in such an emotional state, no one would ever doubt the brotherhood that he had with Rong Jialuo and suspected that he was, in fact, the murderer behind Rong Jialuo's death.
If Gu Xijiu had not known about the truth from the recordings, she would not have believed that Rong Che was the murderer who had plotted the entire incident.
Both of the princes who had the highest chances of succeeding the throne were dead. The Emperor was ailing and was old enough to have one foot set in the grave. After encountering several waves of shocking news, the officials started to argue about the position of a new crown prince.
Rong Che had been on the same side as Rong Jialuo, so the followers of the Crown Prince would wish for Rong Che to rise as their new Crown Prince. On the other hand, those who supported Rong Chu wished for Rong Huan to rise to the throne as they were worried that Rong Che might take revenge on them once he had succeeded the throne.
According to Rong Chu's followers, the death of the Crown Prince did not necessarily mean that their suspicion of him as Rong Chu's murderer would vanish. Rong Che had always been close with Rong Jialuo, so it was hard to tell whether he was part of the plot or not. Therefore, he was unsuitable to be chosen as the Crown Prince.
The officials of the opposing parties started to engage in a heated debate. All of them enthused violently in a verbal argument, and it felt as though they were about to start a fight with one another very soon.
Like the Emperor, even Gu Xijiu was annoyed by the unpleasant commotion that was taking place. She turned away from the screen and asked Di Fuyi, "When are your people going to act?"
Di Fuyi smiled, "Be patient and wait for a little while longer! I have to give the Eighth Prince a chance to indulge in his seeming victory first. Falling from the highest peak would bring about the greatest amount of pain."
Gu Xijiu puckered her lips and did not utter another word.
"What is the matter? Do you still consider him as a friend? Do you feel sorry for him?"
"No!" Gu Xijiu shook her head. Now that she had seen Rong Che's true colors, she would no longer side with him. "I am just amazed by your dark humor."
He could always read another person's mind easily and would not hold back when it was his turn to seek revenge. It was fortunate that he was her fiancé and not her opponent. Otherwise, it would have been a hard time for her to encounter such a psychopath.
Patiently, Gu Xijiu continued to watch the scenario that was unraveling. Suddenly, she could not forbear expressing her surprise, "Isn't the Emperor being controlled by Rong Che? He should be announcing soon that he is appointing Rong Che as the new crown prince, right?"
Di Fuyi twitched the corner of his lips, "Perhaps, he is waiting for the right time?"
Gu Xijiu could not comprehend. Di Fuyi smiled, "Rong Che likes to put on a good show. He has to determine which officials are going to be useful to him and which are to be executed."
Gu Xijiu did not answer. She still could not quite grasp the entire scenario as she was not very familiar with the events of the imperial court.
Di Fuyi continued to explain to her some of the various tricks and techniques that could be used during a political game between the ones who were in power and the ones who were in service.
Gu Xijiu's capability was incomparable as an a.s.sa.s.sin. However, she had never actually learned the tricks to decide the usefulness of a servant to a higher authority. With Di Fuyi's careful explanations, however, she somehow felt enlightened all at once and finally understood what was going on.
She felt a little perplexed and astonished at the same time. Di Fuyi had been offering her some great insights regarding a variety of different knowledge. Was he taking her as a disciple? The two of them continued to watch the scenes from the tablet while they were talking.
After some time, the Emperor was finally making his announcement, "I do not have much time left. The Crown Prince used to be Rong Jialuo, but unfortunately, his whereabouts are still unknown. He has most probably met with an unfortunate event. Che Er has been with Jialuo all this while. He is a bright and brilliant person with excellent achievements in wars. I have decided that in the event of Jialuo's death, I shall appoint Che Er as the new crown prince and he shall be the successor to the throne after my death."
