However, no matter how much the First Prince's countenance changed, no one noticed these changes.
To everyone, the First Prince was no longer of any relevance. The Krieg royal family had almost been completely wiped out. Alexander had already died, so who would still care about the Krieg royal family?
Moreover, everyone could now tell that it was a done deal for Fang Xingjian to control the Empire in the future and become the dictator in the background.
After all, with the super strong powers that Fang Xingjian displayed earlier... Even if all the experts present were to join forces, they would not be a match for just one of Fang Xingjian's hands.
In fact, even if the Imperial Capital had not been destroyed and the many experts in the Empire were still alive, even if the Krieg royal family was still around, and even if the Abyss Lord and King Alexander were still alive... it would be impossible for them to be a match for Fang Xingjian, let alone this small group of people.
To everyone, their martial prowess was no longer in the same dimension as Fang Xingjian's.
Right now, the Fang Xingjian in everyone's eyes was already invincible. Just his means in killing the evil god's clone and annihilating the two Guardian Kings were already extremely brilliant and completely unfathomable.
Therefore, no matter how grim the First Prince's countenance was and no matter how much he cursed, no one paid him any heed. Everyone surrounded Fang Xingjian like the stars hovering around the moon.
However, Fang Xingjian appeared very indifferent. He swept his gaze around everyone present and said, "Since that's the case, then I shan't decline. I'll take on the position of Imperial Preceptor for now."
Although everyone was slightly stunned for a moment as they had not expected him to be so direct, no one objected.
Everyone's expression was still for a moment before they quickly nodded, appearing to be very happy. There was no sign of the depression they had felt earlier toward seeing the Imperial Capital destroyed.
The white-haired and old Knight Association's Chief said happily, "With Master Fang keeping watch over the Empire, the Empire will be rid of any worries from now on."
Beast God seemed to be overjoyed as he shouted, "It's really the great fortune of all the people in the world to have Master Fang supporting the Prince!"
Charlie also stood up and bootlicked, "Alexander is tyrannical, colluding with external parties to bring havoc to the world. Now that the Imperial Preceptor has set everything right from the state of disorder, we're willing to render our service to the Imperial Preceptor even if it's at the risk of our lives."
At the sight of this scene, the fury in the First Prince's heart kept on rising. His face flushed red in fury, and he kept on cursing inwardly, 'Rebels and traitors! A bunch of rebels and traitors! To think that our Krieg royal family has kept for you for so many years. To think that we ended up keeping a bunch of ingrates.'
Green veins popped up on his head, his eyes kept on twitching, and hints of blood-red appeared in his eyes. The First Prince had clearly reached the limit of his tolerance, and he had a strong urge to draw his sword to kill Fang Xingjian.
Yet he still held it in. It was because he knew that in his current state, he no longer had any bargaining chips to negotiate with Fang Xingjian. Right now, his strength was not worth a mention in Fang Xingjian's eyes, and his life or death could be decided with just a single thought from Fang Xingjian. So, if the First Prince wished to keep his life, he could only bear with it.
However, just as everyone appeared to be rejoicing, Charlot suddenly stood out and said, "Teacher, I don't wish to be the King."
Charlot really did not wish to be the King. He was sluggish by nature and enjoyed having fun. Compared to managing the country and governing the world, he would rather travel around the world, enjoying wine and having fun.
Moreover, in this world, only the strong had the right to speak. This was especially when Demigods kept on appearing after the world's metamorphosis. Even Divine level experts could not remain aloof. Charlot was a mere Knight apprentice, so even if he became the King, he would only be a puppet.
Compared to being a puppet in the palace, he would rather be an ordinary student in the Great Western Region, holding his destiny in his own hands.
Charlot had just said this when everyone's gaze turned toward him. The atmosphere turned cold.
Yue Shan quickly grabbed his shoulder and asked, "Are you out of your mind?"
In Yue Shan's opinion, this was something that people could seek but not get. If they were to follow Charlot, they might even gain to benefit. They could not understand why Charlot was so crazy as to reject this.
"If I don't wish to do it, it means I don't wish to do it," Charlot said as he looked at Fang Xingjian. "Teacher, why don't you let Fourth Uncle do it? In terms of character, abilities, and talent, he is above me. He's much more suitable than me."
Fang Xingjian did not pay him any heed and said slowly, "I'm getting you to do it. I'm not asking if you're going to or not."
Charlot's countenance changed, and he felt a heavy pressure descend from the sky and land on him. His back was instantly soaked in cold sweat, and a piercing feeling shot through his entire body like there were countless sword edges brushing past his skin.
The atmosphere immediately turned stiff after Fang Xingjian's words. The Knight Association's Chief immediately stepped out in an attempt to lighten the atmosphere. "Charlot is too young. He's merely saying this out of impulse. Imperial Preceptor, don't take it to heart."
Fang Xingjian ignored the Knight Association's Chief and instead stared at Charlot while saying, "From today onward, you are the Empire's King." His tone was unquestionable, and he had no intention of discussing this with Charlot.
However, this time around, Charlot did not dare object to it. Fang Xingjian's earlier disposition scared him.
In fact, if Charlot was not the Second Prince's son, Fang Xingjian would be able get any random member of the royal family to take on this position. It would not be any different to him even if he were to get the First Prince to assume this role.
He merely wanted to integrate the powers of the Empire in order to help nurture his subordinates, gather resources, get stronger, and even to go up against the Church of Universal Truth.
Therefore, following this, everyone left this small world under the two Mage Kings' lead, returning to the Imperial Capital's location.
When they returned to Miracle World, the original location of the Imperial Capital was now completely empty. There was only a huge, deep, and bottomless abyss which seemed to suggest that the Imperial Capital had once existed.
Seeing this deep and terrifying abyss, everyone's eyes filled with apprehension. When they looked at the two Mage Kings, their gazes became increasingly filled with ill will.
If they had not wanted to conduct the evil god summoning ritual, how could so many people have died?
At the sight of this scene, the First Prince also appeared extremely sorrowful.
Looking at the huge hole in front of him, Fang Xingjian instructed everyone to start rebuilding the Imperial Capital.
A few minutes later, colorful lights shot up into the clouds.
Amongst the many experts present, just the Demigods alone had a count of over ten experts, and there were also four Divine level experts, including the Fourth Prince, Black Mage King, and Gold Mage King.
The First Prince was only left with less than 5% of his powers. However, both the Black Mage King and Gold Mage King were Mages, and in terms of both their powers and cultivation, they far surpassed Knights who were of the same level as them.
In Miracle World, the power of experts originated from themselves. They did not just have strong battle prowess. Their productive and calculative forces were also equally strong.
At the level of Divine level experts, the power of one person could surpass that of an entire country.
