In a side courtyard on the west of the king palace, Yang Xiuqing and Shi Dakai sat facing one another.
This side courtyard was usually the office of the various ministers of Taiping Country. However, it was really quiet now. Apart from the two of them, there was no one else in sight.
The death of the king had caused a sort of terrifying and chaotic atmosphere to rise in the palace. The palace guards and eunuchs looked on at the items they had packed without knowing how to react.
If it was not for these two taking charge, the entire Tianjing City would have fallen into total chaos.
After learning that the king had died, Shi Dakai had directly arranged for the troops to patrol the streets. He would administer force over the city to prevent any disturbances.
Logically, Shi Dakai, who had power over the military, could just snatch the position of king.
