'Become his servant?'

Hearing this, the Black Mage King got so angry that he almost spat out blood.

The Black Mage King could be said to be the most senior amongst the many experts present and had the greatest reputation. He was a top notch character who was from the same generation as the previous generation's Pope.

Moreover, he had brought together the black, gold, and red faction Mages, joined forces with the purple and cyan factions, and become the person who wielded power in the Mage Association.

It was already at his limit for him to lower his head and bend down before Fang Xingjian.

Just the act of bending down before Fang Xingjian had already made him very frustrated. However, to think that Fang Xingjian would voice out such an excessive request.

'Become your servant? Hehe... How mighty.' The Black Mage King's eyes narrowed slightly. There seemed to be killing intent gathering in them. However, thinking of Fang Xingjian's mighty act of killing the Evil God Tribe's warrior earlier, he was forced to hold back his dissatisfaction.

The power that Fang Xingjian had displayed was too heaven-defying. Even the Black Mage King did not dare to fight against Fang Xingjian at this moment.

The Gold Mage King frowned but did not step forth to object either. Although he felt perplexed by the earlier scene and could not understand why Fang Xingjian could grasp a power of that degree within such a short period of time, he would not face Fang Xingjian head-on before he had absolute confidence.

However, Fang Xingjian did not plan on letting the two of them off.

He did not really possess the power to annihilate the small world or crush the Evil God Tribe's warrior. Everything was just a part of his illusory art.

Right now, the illusory art of Fang Xingjian's Celestial Eradication Sword Technique could already reach the microscopic level, so he could create all sorts of illusions through the other party's sensory abilities.

Regardless of the type of living creature, one would need to probe into the external world in order to be able to sense it. Ordinary people did this through their vision, which was a reflection of light, and through their hearing, which was a reflection of sound waves. They could also do so through other means.

In order to become accustomed to battles in various complicated and high speed environments, Divine level experts made a habit out of using their martial will to probe their environment.

Regardless of the means, it was still necessary for one to unleash their sensory abilities to gather information around them.

However, regardless of the type of probing means used, it was impossible for the method used to be independent from the microscopic world's reactions. Due to this, Fang Xingjian could use his powers on the microscopic world to change the results other people obtained after sensing this world.

It would portray almost everything seen, heard, touched, or sensed as what Fang Xingjian wanted them to be.

An illusory art like this which affected the microscopic level was very amazing. This was especially the case as Fang Xingjian had awakened a part of his memories and entered deeper into his inner heart, allowing him to develop a power that could draw out the emotions of others.

Despite this, it was still impossible for an ability like that to be invincible.

At the very least, Fang Xingjian's illusory art, which could affect the microscopic level, still had two great flaws.

The first flaw was that he was unable to interfere with what others sensed with their own bodies. This was especially the case for the cultivated conjured physiques of Divine level experts. Each and every physical particle in their conjured physique was under the control of their own martial will.

Fang Xingjian could change what others sensed about their external environments because they had to unleash their probing means into the external world. However, he was unable to change the awareness that people had toward the actual situation of their own bodies.

The second flaw was the Sudden Inspiration's senses.

Sudden Inspiration was a kind of sense that Divine level experts had toward space-time and timelines. Unless Fang Xingjian could surpass the microscopic realm and apply his powers at the space-time level, he would not be able to deceive the Sudden Inspiration's senses.

Therefore, Fang Xingjian naturally wanted to make use of the might he had displayed through the scene of killing the Evil God Tribe's warrior to get the two Mages to submit to him. This will would prevent them from turning on him in the future and causing another great battle.

"Why?" In that instant, the world changed, and the small world seemed to start flattening under the pressure of the huge force.

Fang Xingjian's voice continued to resonate in the world, as if wanting to reach the depths of everyone's heart.

"You guys aren't willing?"

The Black Mage King gritted his teeth, and his cheeks twitched fiercely. However, when he looked at the sky which kept being pressed down bit by bit, the Black Mage King eventually still lowered his head and said calmly, "Alright. From today onward, the entire Mage Association will be yours."

He was still a hero of a generation. His ability to maintain a peaceful state of mind and his tolerance level were things which no one present could be a match for.

Moreover, to Divine level experts, their lives and strength were still the most important to them. It was because as long as they were still alive, there would be room for improvement and a chance to turn the tables.

Although the Gold Mage King's countenance was grim, he still nodded and said, "Since the Black Mage King agrees to this, I naturally have no comments. From today onward, the entire Mage Association will be yours."

Simultaneously, the Gold Mage King smirked inwardly, 'Old Black is really getting slyer and slyer. How could the people from the other factions possibly agree to this?'

He understood clearly that if Fang Xingjian really were to announce that the Mage Association had been taken under his wing, then it would mean he had offended the Mages from the other factions.

After all, even the Black Mage King had merely unified the Mages from the black, red, and gold factions. Although the Mages from the other factions had laid low for a very long time now, they each had their own plans. How could they possibly be able to suddenly accept having one more Fang Xingjian taking charge of them?

However, the Gold Mage King was still happy to see things coming to this. It would be best if both parties could fight each other while he and the Black Mage King watched from the side and figured Fang Xingjian out.

After all, the might displayed in Fang Xingjian's earlier series of actions was just too great. Before they understood Fang Xingjian's true colors, the Gold Mage King did not dare to take on him head-on.

"Alright. The two of you will follow me from now on. Get your people from the Mage Association to hand over the things to my people." Fang Xingjian naturally had to suppress these two top experts personally. Only by constantly keeping them by his side and constraining them through layers of illusory arts would he be able to restrict the two of them bit by bit.

At the thought of this, Fang Xingjian tapped out once again, and Light Pursuit sword intent swept out. However, no one saw this.

Unknowingly, two streams of smoke rose from the Black Mage King's and the Gold Mage King's bodies, flying toward Fang Xingjian. Then they were sucked into his mouth.

Fang Xingjian used his illusory arts to change the information they received, preventing them from sensing the existence of attacks before the attacks struck them.

The most important thing was that in this small world situated outside Miracle World, the effects of Sudden Inspiration were weakened to an extreme.

Therefore, in everyone's eyes, Fang Xingjian had merely waved his hand, and two streams of smoke floated out from the Black Mage King's and Gold Mage King's bodies before he grabbed the smoke in his hands.

The Black Mage King's and Gold Mage King's countenances changed, and they both realized at the same time that their systems had actually disappeared.

In Miracle World, systems were known as the cultivation foundations. It was an existence that was everlasting like the sun and the seas.

To think that Fang Xingjian was now grabbing hold of their systems... How could they possibly not be in jitters?

Furthermore, the way Fang Xingjian had done this tracelessly made them apprehensive. Since he could pull out their systems, was he also able to take their lives without them knowing?
