Seeing how Fang Xingjian, who defeated a few Divine level experts earlier, was now performing sword techniques consecutively yet unable to get away, everyone was left speechless.

"This is the power of tier five of the Divine level?"

"Changing the world with a single thought and creating a world of one's own..."

"Even the space has been completely changed."

While everyone was overwhelmed with astonishment, a sword light flashed, and Fang Xingjian once again condensed his body. The part between his eyebrows was extremely tense.

He raised his Thunder Calamity Longsword high up, and the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation was activated at full power. However, he did not slash and purely smashed out with brute force instead.

Fang Xingjian wanted to use his greatest strength to smooth out the deranged structure in space. It was like using force to shake a bed and then smoothing out the chaotic state once again.

Unlike the darkness from earlier, when this sword slashed out, it was like a pure explosion of brute force with every inch of movement. Each inch brought forth a brilliant light and heat just like an exploding planet, stopping at nothing to release his own power.

This was also the method which Fang Xingjian thought of earlier for breaking the Divine Country-using absolute power to make up for the difference in their realms.

Under the full powered blast of the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation, the space started to seethe and distort like it was being slowly smoothed out. The changing spatial structures started to return to normal, and the stretched space was once again returned to its original state by the tremors. The white light seemed as if it was purifying the entire space inside hell.

At the sight of this scene, Philip and the others revealed elated expressions like they had seen the light of hope.

However, Alexander's expression remained calm. "Do you really think that you're the only one with a formation? Try out the secret arts of our Ancient Path of Hell... The Infernal Hell Diagram."

As Alexander's ten fingers moved, the space seemed to rippled like water. Cracks that could be seen by the naked eye started appearing on Fang Xingjian's body. Then in the blink of an eye, they scattered out within a range of several lis.

Front, back, left, right, up, and down... All six directions were overturned and placed in disorder. Fang Xingjian's body appeared as if it had been split up into several hundred thousand pieces, each of which was floating in the sky.

He was like a rubik's cube that had been messed up. His body was still intact, but it appeared to the naked eye as messed up because the space had been split up.

The spatial structure became ten thousand times more complicated. The space which had been starting to return to normal under Fang Xingjian's full power attack once again became messed up.

The white light extended out inch by inch, with each inch of extension taking several minutes or even over ten minutes. It would probably take him a few years or even a few decades in order to break out from this predicament.

Seeing that Fang Xingjian was completely trapped by the space, everyone in the academy became dejected. The Fourth Prince staggered, and his countenance became extremely grim.

Fang Qian, Rota, Wang Xiaoyan, and the others were shaking while feeling at a loss.

Fang Xingjian was their mainstay. If he were to collapse, they found it hard to imagine what kind of ending would be waiting for them. Fang Xingjian had too many enemies-the royal family, Mages, and Divine level experts from different influences. No one would be lenient and go easy on them.

Just the thought of this made everyone break out in cold sweat.

Alexander said calmly, "It's true that your sword arts have reached the very top in the world. However, despite having powerful sword arts, insufficient cultivation is your greatest weakness.

"So what if your sword arts are of a high level when you can't even control space?"

"Hahahaha, Fang Xingjian!" Seeing the trapped Fang Xingjian, the Fifth Prince's eyes were filled with proud and overjoyed feelings. It was as if these feelings had become material. "Do you really think that you've become invincible? What do you feel now? You don't even have the rights to escape when you're right before us.

"Father, kill him."

The Fifth Prince immediately tried to admonish Alexander, wanting to kill Fang Xingjian. However, Alexander shook his head, not doing so. He still wanted Fang Xingjian to help him complete the evil god ritual.

Alexander was wearing the same nonchalant expression from before, as if suppressing a sword arts master like Fang Xingjian was not something that could bring much change to his expression.

"Fang Xingjian, you'll need about ten years to break through the Infernal Hell Diagram. Therefore, you should be compliant and just stay here. When the evil god ritual starts, I'll let you out. If you can assist me, I can consider sparing your life."

A domineering intent gushed into Fang Xingjian's mind together with the information. It was as if the gods high up in the sky were announcing oracles. It was also like a sovereign that ruled over the mortal world was giving out his decree.

After the series of tier five Divine level means, Alexander's disposition, which was as if he was high above others, ruling over all living creatures, and was neither good nor evil, became increasingly thicker.

In the distance, Chaos Witch Celine, who still had not been discovered by anyone, nodded and said, "As expected. Although Fang Xingjian has great talent, he's still unable to break through the restrictions of tier five Divine level. After all, the realm at tier five of the Divine level is a qualitative improvement from before. It isn't something which can be easily broken through with purely the use of sword arts or power."

The other Chaos Witch, Lamia, sighed. She nodded and said, "The matter with Fang Xingjian is considered to be settled. He's unable to attain any breakthrough to a higher realm while in Alexander's Divine Country. He'll end up attending the evil god ritual in this current condition.

"However, Alexander's power has slightly surpassed our expectations. We must think of ways to suppress his powers a little."

Celine nodded in agreement. "The fact that he can get away with suppressing Fang Xingjian at this time means that he has gotten stronger. This is probably also related to the Shang that's behind him. This organization that shouldn't have appeared seems to have many concealed means that we are unaware."

The two Chaos Witches started to discuss how they could weaken Alexander after Fang Xingjian had been suppressed.

At that moment, Fang Xingjian was still within the disorderly space.

This was the first time his entire body was in an area with such severely deranged space. Every inch of his body was being stretched out and reassembled by a different space. He could sense that his body was still whole, but he was unable to differentiate up, down, left, right, front, and back. Everything seen through his eyes seemed to be in a state of chaos.

The All-Conquering sword, which could deal the greatest power, could smoothen these spaces, but it would be too slow.

However, Fang Xingjian's talent surpassed everyone's expectations. Just as everyone thought that he had been suppressed, Fang Xingjian, who was in the deranged space, gained a deeper comprehension toward space.

'The All-Conquering sword represents the power of electromagnetism, and the strongest power that can be used against space should be Astral Powers-gravity.'

All sorts of martial techniques from the Myriad Stars Palace, the Melancholic Monarch's Prodigious Astral Divine Powers, and other sword techniques related to gravitational forces flashed through Fang Xingjian's mind rapidly.

They then turned into a stream of Infiltrating Void sword intent.

Simultaneously, a longsword slowly emerged from his mouth.

The longsword was like a dried tree branch. It had seven inflection points and was pitch black. There seemed to be countless aggrieved spirits crying out.

Fang Xingjian picked up the sword and could immediately sense that it had a weight of over 100,000 tons.

Wang Xiaoyan and Fang Qian looked at the longsword which had suddenly appeared and exclaimed, "It's Abyss!"

The Abyss Longsword was the level 34 Divine Remains Equipment they had modified from the Hell's White Bone Armor. It had not been completed and should still have been in the research room.

Then there must be only one reason why it had appeared. Under the guidance of Fang Xingjian's Sudden Inspiration, he had taken this longsword with him from the Great Western Region Regional Academy before coming to participate in the battle.
