Book 7: Chapter 120: Admitting defeat
After a while, Xu Yi ended his call and gave Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca a hand signal to wait.
After another while, Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca felt at the same time that there was another strange change to the magic space near Mero City in front of them.
When they felt this familiar change, the two of them looked at each other and gave a nod.
The unusual condition of this magic space was exactly like the magic cage that had surrounded them. It was clear that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had used an unknown method to change the magic space in front of them.
But when they checked with their magic power, they could tell that this time it was a twenty meter tall and ten meter wide rectangular prism that they couldnt see how thick it was because their magic power couldnt go in. It wasnt like a perfect sphere like the one that had trapped all of them inside previously.
The two of them felt assured because this meant that Xu Yi just wanted them to give it a try and didnt want to trap them again.
Of course, with their current conditions, if Xu Yi worked with the powerful Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards, they could easily take care of them. They wouldnt need to waste all this energy to lay down this trap.
“Alright, Arch Magus Ofalian, you can give it a try like you just did before. Of course, I must remind you to stay away from that space because the consequences of magic space collapsing are more terrifying than you imagined.”
After saying this, Xu Yi moved back a bit and gave an inviting gesture.
“This fellow moved that far away, is he not afraid of us turning and running” Arch Magus Ofalian looked at Xu Yi who had moved a hundred meters away and knitted his brows in doubt as he said this.
“What is he worried about With our tiny bit of magic power left, even if we could barely escape, we wouldnt be able to escape his pursuit. Moreover, he doesnt have any intentions of killing us, so why would we run away Then again, Ofalian, arent you curious” Arch Magus Laduca asked back.
“I wouldnt have said that much if I wasnt curious.”
Arch Magus Ofalian gave a cold snort. He waved at the helpless thirteen Great Magicians on the side for them to come over before telling them his conversation with Xu Yi. He told them that he wanted to gather their magic power together again to break through this special magic space.
The thirteen Great Magicians naturally didnt have any objections. They had been ordered to follow the instructions of the two Arch Magi, not to mention that they were curious about what Xu Yi said.
This was Arch Magus Ofalian using a secret method to gather the magic power of thirteen Great Magicians, it would naturally be terrifyingly strong. How could it not break through this barrier Even if the barrier had completely trapped them before.
Xu Yi in the distance curiously watched Arch Magus Ofalian and the thirteen Great Magicians floating in the air. He felt the surrounding magic space being influenced by Arch Magus Ofalians magic domain before the thirteen Great Magicians released all their magic power, which was gathered bit by bit by Arch Magus Ofalian.
The method that Arch Magus Ofalian used really was a surprise to him.
This special magic cages highest setting was aimed at Arch Magi, so it wasnt a problem to trap Arch Magus Ofalian, Arch Magus Laduca, and the thirteen Great Magicians.
But now, Arch Magus Ofalian gathered the magic power of thirteen Great Magicians together. It exceeded the limits of an Arch Magus and even exceeded the tolerance of the magic cage.
So this meant that if Arch Magus Ofalian had released that black sphere, it was very likely that it would have broken the magic cage, but that would have created a terrifying aftereffect. They wouldnt have been able to escape from this aftereffect.
Xu Yi had been hidden among the Magic Airships and had been watching the combat situation the entire time, but he never thought that there would be this accident that would force him out.
He knew that whether it was Arch Magus Ofalian, Arch Magus Laduca, or the thirteen Great Magicians, they would be the same. To become the powerful magicians that they were, they would have a strong curiosity and desire for knowledge.
It was impossible to convince them with just his words alone.
Only using iron like facts to show them the result would make them realize the significance hidden in this matter.
Very soon, Arch Magus Ofalian had already gathered the magic power of the thirteen Great Magicians together and there was the black ball representing the compressed space in front of him.
Arch Magus Ofalian suddenly turned to look at Xu Yi.
Xu Yi revealed a smile and gave an “inviting” gesture.
Arch Magus Ofalian gave a cold snort and used his magic power, quickly sending out that black ball in front of him at the strange rectangular prism shaped magic space in front of him.
Everyone was focused on the black ball that instantly passed through over two hundred meters.
The black ball quickly came into contact with the strange magic space.
As soon as it touched it, the strange magic space that couldnt be seen with the naked eye released countless multi coloured lines, while also letting out a high pitched “zi, zi” sound.
The black ball demonstrated the might of all the magic power of the thirteen Great Magicians gathered by Arch Magus Ofalian, as the countless lines of various colours created by that magic space were all sucked in.
However, when one line disappeared, there would be more that appeared.
In an instant, there were countless lines that represented that magic space that appeared in front of everyone.
Seeing that the lines were limited to the rectangular prism space, Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca shared a surprised look.
Normally speaking, powerful magicians could use their control over elemental magic energy to forcefully create a special magic space. For example, the magic domains that the two of them had as Arch Magi was a concrete example.
But the magic space that magicians created were in the shape of a perfect sphere and wouldnt take any other shapes.
It was because magicians used their magic power to control the elemental magic energy around them to form this magic space. The range would be affected by the strength of the magic power and their control over elemental magic power, but because the range was limited, it was centered around the magician themself and would take the shape of a sphere.
Unless there was a special situation, there wouldnt be a magician who would create a magic space with a special shape because it was much more difficult and they wouldnt be able to demonstrate their full power.
But after Xu Yi said a few words into the Magic Communicator, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards in Mero City actually created a rectangular prism and it looked to be a standard magic space, which was quite impressive.
Just based on this magic space, the Mero Citys Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards grasp of magic space already surpassed all Great Magicians, it wasnt even weaker than Arch Magus Ofalian or Arch Magus Laduca.
Then based on the fact that the two of them were even trapped in that magic space, it wasnt exaggerated to say that the Frestech Chamber of Commerces attainments in magic space surpassed the two of them.
However, this was the strangest thing.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards definitely had magicians, but they didnt even have Great Magicians, so there was no need to mention Arch Magi.
In this situation, how were they able to create such a powerful magic space
Could it be that it was done with the strange military magic machines the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had
These questions had floated in the mind of the two Arch Magi, but what they were more focused on was the collision of the black ball and the magic space.
The black ball kept sucking in the colourful lines from the magic space, looking like light flowing into the void as it kept going into the black ball. This scene truly looked gorgeous and strange.
But no matter how much the black ball sucked away, the colourful lines kept appearing. There were more and more of them appearing and they were appearing at faster speeds.
The black ball that was absorbing the colourful lines was also getting bigger bit by bit as a rate that could be seen with the naked eye.
In less than two minutes, the black ball had already doubled.
What they needed to pay more attention to was that the magic space was getting stranger.
As the lines kept appearing and were sucked into the black ball, the magic space started to dim, as if all the colour was being sucked away into the black ball.
As the black ball became bigger and bigger, the colour of the space became darker until it finally turned black. It was like the entire space had been affected by the black ball.
In the space surrounding the strange rectangular prism magic space, there were signs that the space was getting unstable. One could even see that the elemental magic energy around the area was gathering in a strange method, creating a strange magic phenomenon.
“Ofalian, this is……” Arch Magus Laduca looked at the magic space that seemed like it could collapse at any moment and his expression became a bit nervous.
Arch Magus Ofalians expression sank and he was no longer as unconvinced by Xu Yi as before, revealing a serious expression.
Hearing Arch Magus Laducas words, he opened his mouth, but he wasnt able to say anything.
Arch Magus Laduca looked at him and gave a sigh. He turned to look at Xu Yi in the distance and raised his voice to say, “Chairman Xu, weve lost.”-
