This battle had gone on long enough. It became time to finish it.

Xin began to glow, seemingly using one of her skills. I launched various attacks at once, leaning heavily on Haste and Explosive Movement, combining it with Magic Swordman’s skill Extended Blade and Quick attack. I had been allowing myself to work slowly up until this point, so the sudden explosion caught her completely off guard. I also used Phase Shift, which could be activated instantaneously. In short, I disappeared and reappeared next to her, striking at a speed that even the great Princess Hero couldn’t stop.

Still, to her credit, she managed to raise her blade. I pushed Phase Shift into the blade, and it shimmered for a second, passing through her blade. The sword struck her. In reality, doing it this way killed my momentum. If I was doing a physical strike by using this method, I would have lost all power and wouldn’t have even been able to damage her. However, my sword was glowing blue, and my aim was intended to render her unconscious, not injure her.

The sword struck, and the woman collapsed to her knee. Her eyes fluttered for a second, but then she shot a glare at me. She had managed to resist it! However, she was momentarily stunned. Immediately changing my plan, I shoved my hand on her forehead. After hot-swapping my jobs, I began to form a slave bond.

“Geeaaahhh…” She let out a cry as I began to try to force her into slavery.

Forcing someone into slavery was general impossible… with the low-level skill Bond Slave. However, when I reached level 50, I had gained a much stronger slave ability, Enslavement. I had predicted that it would allow you to forcibly enslave someone.  As soon as I began to use it, I realized it was a battle of will. To succeed, I had to enforce my will over another. Perhaps, this also would have been impossible against Xin normally, but this version of Xin had already had her will destroyed by the demon lord, and her soul had chopped away the parts of herself that had the most defiance. In short, she was a woman who submitted.

This was why I believed once she combined with my Xin, that it would be my Xin who won out. This was just my hopeful belief though.

Despite all of these conditions being in my favor, it was still extremely difficult. A minute passed by, and everyone only sat and watched in confusion. A violent battle had begun, only to suddenly stop after I had seemingly cut Xin. Then, she fell to her knees, and I put my hand on her forehead. Since then, she let out muffled cries and screams, and we both seemed to be in exertion, but nothing else happened.

I began to realize that even here, she was too strong. Enslavement was truly an ability that only worked against the extremely weak. However, I was unwilling to give up. With a roar, my body began to glow, the tattoos of all my blessings began to shine brightly. It was a sight seen by everyone present. From the previous fight, there had been enough gashes and cuts that parts of the blessings could be seen all over.

I sent all of that power into my Enslavement, and the hand where Alysium resided shone the brightest. Alysia’s form appeared beside her mother. If my appearance caused a shockwave, then hers was a tsunami. The demon lord’s expression turned from one of anger to one of shock and then fear.

“Mother… let go.” Alysia put her hands on Xin’s shoulder and whispered these words.

Xin looked over at her daughter, and for the briefest moment, there was a flash of expression. It was happiness, an expression that shouldn’t have appeared on the face of a puppet. Then, she let out a scream and collapsed. As she fell, I dropped to one knee but managed to remain standing.

{Xin has become your slave.}
